Isaiah 59:19 KJV
So shall they fear the name of the LORD from the west, and his glory
from the rising of the sun. When the enemy shall come in like a flood,
the Spirit of the LORD shall lift up a standard against him.
The Lord moved upon us a few years ago at the Haven of Hope Church
during a youth service, the week after our trip to a Shabbach Youth
Conference with our youth group. He led us to this scripture, and we
have seen several ministers make a statement, that when the text of the
KJV was translated, the original language, Hebrew, had no form of
and these ministers like to look at the verse above like this...
"When the enemy shall come in,
LIKE A FLOOD
the Spirit of the LORD shall lift up a standard against him."
So we changed the name of our youth ministry, to The Flood Youth
The Flood Youth Ministries, and meets
on Wednesday nights at 7:30, where they hold church services geared
towards teens. The service is loaded with games, fun time, awesome
praise & worship music, preaching, and altar services.
The services utilize a lightshow, full sound system, video music trax,
and special effects.
But the services are full on spiritual time with both age groups!
Pastor Jess is instrumental in leading the
kids in worship, praise, and their spiritual life, as she not only
preaches, and prays with them in the altars, but she mentors, and
counsels with them outside of the services.
Pastor Jess also serves on the Praise team
in the sanctuary, and labors intently in many other areas of the church.
