Testimony

March 25, 2014

Mother Irvin was in the hospital at Jefferson University in Philadelphia, PA. I went to visit her. She said that she was there because she could not walk, so we prayed and I anointed her with oil. Mother Irvin was upset because the Doctors told her that she could not go back home because of her legs and that she had to go to rehab for about 6 to 8 weeks. They wanted to make sure that she was able to stand. We went to see mother on March 30, 2014 and God brought a word for her and told me to tell her that she will be going home  by the end of the week. She called on Thursday and told me that she was coming home Friday. That was on April 4, 2014.  We went to visit Mother Irvin at her home on April 6, 2014.

Thank you Lord for what you have done!!

Elder Mark Thompson

A Forecast of Catastrophic Proportion!!!

Praise the Lord once again WOC followers. My name is Tammy Ruffin, Pastor of, “New Beginnings Family Worship Center.” located in the heart of Davenport, Iowa. I praise God for the opportunity to once again share the great move of God happening through the Man of God Elder Mark Thompson and the Word of Christ Ministries.

First giving all Honor, Glory and Power to the Elohim One, God Most High, Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Being the author and finisher of my faith, I reverence him on this blessed day. It is through his grace and mercy that I am here today and none of us would be here without him, to God be the Glory, Amen!

I don’t no how many know it, but I am a Pastor,  a Minister Music, intercessor , a worshiper, a mother of three, and a PROUD Grandmother of two. I am very proud of each and every role that God has given me stewardship over. But out of them all I am especially proud of being a prayer warrior for Christ. On Mondays, Wednesdays and every other Friday I conduct intercessory prayer for all that can call in, and those who don;’t on the Prayer Clinic, a place where God is always on the line healing, saving,and delivering all the time….Praise God! On several occasion I had the privilege of asking our friend and Pastor Thompson if God was sharing anything for his people and he graciously accepted to pray on the line. Around the 9th of December Pastor Mark Thompson came fired up as usual. but this time, he wasn’t being what I called…(Nice). Why do I say that, you may ask? Well this time there was no time for conversing as we sometimes do before we prayed. There was no room for prettying things up. He was straight forward and he began his message with am all Point Bulletin that simply went something like this. (My God) and i Quote: People get ready or equipped to handle! The call got quiet as he continued to speak with such authority and power and severity in his  voice. We knew that our very life depended on us getting this.

Forecast for today, Windy, Blizzard Conditions, Heavy Snow  in all parts of this world. A winter storm of catastophical proportions. Warning…Buy dry beans, perishables and plenty of water….STOCK UP! California and Florida will lose tons of money because the orange crops will fail, therefore the grocery prices will hike up at an all-time high. go get space heaters to keep your bills down as it will be almost impossible to afford the climbing in the utility bills; you won’t be able to keep up. In California they will experience rain that will cause mud slides that will be impossible to recover from. How long? Until God says so and you dear children of God have seen the signs and have heard the warnings! Get your house in order! How do you recover from that?

Mathew 16:1-4  One day the Pharisees and Sadducees came test Jesus, demanding that he show a miraculous sign from Heaven to prove his authority.

He replied, ” You know the saying, red sky at night means fair weather tomorrow, red sky in the morning means foul weather all day.” You know how to interpret the weather signs in the sky, but you don’t know how to interpret the signs of times!

“Only an evil adulterous generation would demand a miraculous sign, but I will give them is the sign of the Prophet Jonah.” then Jesus left them and went away.

It wasn’t but a few days later that this country experienced one of the worst winters in the United States History. things are still happening:  California is experiencing mus slides to the point that they are evacuating certain parts of Northern California. the Arctic Cold and Ice Storms has hit and Handicapped Georgia, Florida and Alabama. The water is running out in certain states an people are hotting stores like never before trying to get enough for their family. and as we all know everything is going up.,except our paychecks Saints get it together…once again Pastor Thompson heard from the Lord and obeyed the call to warn God’s People…Hallelujah, glory unto the Most High God!!! Saints the time is now, don’t wait another second…hear what the spirit is saying to the Church and take heed.

At this time we are experience just what was prophesy  for 2014-2015

Thank you Pastor Thompson, Keep up the God work in Jesus Name, Amen!

God Has Fed Us From Our Birth To This Day (Spiritual and Natural)

Psalms 27:1-6

The lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The lord is the strength of my life. of whom shall I be afraid? When the wicked, even mine enemies and my foes, came upon me to eat up my  flesh, they stumbled and fell. though and host should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear, though war should rise against me, in this will I be confident. One thing have I desired of the Lord, that I will seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to enquire in his temple. for in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion:  in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock. And now shall my head be lifted up above mine enemies: round about me: therefore will I offer in his joy; I will sing yea, I will sing praises unto the Lord.

Amen!!

THE MIGHTY EL SHADDAI!!!

EL SHADDAI!!!

At the end of a service during the Summer Revival an altar call  was given for those who wanted prayer to come to receive prayer.  A prophetic mantle was upon Elder Thompson. Many people who attended the service received a word of wisdom and word of knowledge from the Lord.

One particular lady attended the Friday evening service. She is a Dean of a College the Atlanta area, and former High School Principal. Before praying for her, Elder Thompson looked at her and said, “God is about to promote and elevate you, and give you the desire of your heart.” He further said to her, you sought God about this haven’t you? She began to cry and say yes. She shared that she came for a specific word from the God and had received her answer.

Last week Dr. Cummings, called the ministry excited and bubbling with joy. She began to share that God told her to come to the revival and he would give her a sign, a word, direction for her life. She further shared that the Lord told her to sow a seed offering into the ministry. She obeyed God and gave what the Lord told her to give as an offering.

Dr. Cummings had asked the Lord for a Homeless Shelter for Children. She had also asked the Lord to provide a building with at least 50 rooms for the shelter. During a business meeting an investor was at the university. She began to share with him what the Lord had place in her heart. Several days later the investor called and asked is a hotel big enough in  affluent area in Atlanta? He further told her he would take care of the building renovations. Dr Cummings immediately acknowledged the Hand of God blessing her and wanted to let Word of Christ ministries know that God is moving and has intervened on her behalf.

She is having her first informational meeting for the public on November 12, 2013. All Metro Atlanta School District Homeless Education Department Coordinators have been invited to share information about the facilities availability to their students who are without a place to live. She is praising God for the Word of Wisdom given to her, and for the seed offering sown into the ministry which helped to produce her answered prayer.

Word of Christ Ministries along with Founder Elder Mark H. Thompson are humbled and truly Thank the Lord for his manifested Glory into the lives of his people.

What A Mighty God We Serve!!!

What A Mighty God We Serve!!!

Praise the Lord, I want to first give honor to the Most High God, Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for all that that he is and all that he has done. To Him be all Glory! Well the last time I wrote to you all was to tell how God blessed me and my family bringing us out of seemingly bad situation to a blessed situation. From having no money; to having been blessed with more than enough. God use Pastor Thompson in a mighty way by obeying God’s voice and the call upon his life, he was able to send us what we needed to  stay in the hotel for the 4 day that we’d paid for, but bless me my four children and new grand baby to stay additional 16 days. Yes you heard me right, through this Man of God we were at the hotel for total of 20 days before God would release us to leave. Pastor spoke to me half way into our stay and said that it would not be long. He said that I would have my own place, that in spite of my credit report, despite the eviction notice of my past, that God said I would have it.  Not to many days from that day I seen God work. My God is  An Awesome God!!!

It was on September 19, 2013 that I found myself texting Pastor Mark informing him that I was sitting in my very own living room floor and that I didn’t have furniture but my heart felt so overwhelmed that I was in my own place. I still had to get my daughter and her family in a place, I knew that I would have to pray and believe even more because like her mother  she had some credit issues as well. But, if God had done it for me surely he’d do it for her too. I called Pastor Mark up again and he knew already what was happening, he told me not to even worry about it, that God said it and it is so.

Guess what ya’ll, my daughter has a place right  in back of my place. Not too shabby of a place either. I just praise God for a man of God that is like God, what do I mean, you asked?  Well aren’t you glad that Pastor Mark doesn’t get tired of our calls just like Jesus, whose line is never to busy for us and is always listening for our cries. Thank you Pastor for being Obedient, to the call and keep up the God work; God understands and sees your labor of love and will reward you in due season. We are praying for you and thank you.

Tammy Ruffin, Pastor

He May Not Come When You Want Him, But He’s ALWAYS Right on Time

He is ALWAYS Right on Time!!!!!

First of all I want to give honor to my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ who is the head of my life! He is truly an awesome God, and I’ll be forever grateful to him for all the that he does for me and my family. I don’t know quite where to start, so I guess I’ll start at the beginning.

I am a proud mother of 3 children and 2 grandchildren and my children and I decided to live together so that we could help my mother keep her home. You see, she previously had 2 strokes, preventing her from caring for her home in the manner she was accustom to. So my brother  agreed to take over the home and the bills and the upkeep of the property but unfortunately a few years later, he bailed on his agreement. I then decided to take over the property after discussing it with other family members. The overall agreement was that I would get my income taxes and with it, fix the place up to livable standards. In the meantime, while I was there, the water was leaking and in the first week my living room ceiling caved in on us. Keep in mind, that this is the room in which I have Sunday Morning Services. It was the only room, really presentable to have service. Within 2 months of  me being there, the water heater needed to be replaced, the front door had to be taken out and reshaped for a new entry way. The plumbing in the kitchen was on the blinks. The toilet started to act up. A neighbor came over without me being home and helped his self into the house drinking and smoking and watching my big screen television. After getting on him and calling the law, this same man decided to go in my back yard and cut down one of 3 biggest trees that I had, almost hitting the other neighbors house,

When it rains it pours, then I was served some papers from the Sheriff’s Dept, that I had 90 days to get out because of a lien that was brought because the 5 thousand dollars taxes had not been paid, not to mention that my oldest daughter went into premature labor and had my grandson. I didn’t know what to do, I tell you, and I was wreck. All the money from my taxes was gone in repairs and only a few of us had jobs to sustain us. On August 25, 2013, I called Pastor Mark Thompson and told him that I needed prayer, things were not good and that I just wanted out. He immediately stopped me and told me that he been up all night praying for me. That the Lord was showing him me and that everything would be alright. He prayed for me  and I felt much better, I was  assured that it would be alright. I moved my family into a Hotel and until we could do better. The rooms cost me $534.45 or so for 4 nights and I had that to spend and a few hundred for meals. I was  waiting fora  settlement that was coming through for us to move on and for some reason it hadn’t come. I was expecting it months prior so that I wouldn’t have to go through all of this. How did I get to this state, is the question I asked myself. I prayed Lord would you please help us send the money please, is what I was thinking. The money was running short and I needed a place for me and my family, so I stopped calling for prayer or anything. I kind of got in my own self pity and I tried to stay positive but couldn’t see the forest for the trees. On the morning of August 28, 2013, it was a Wednesday, I just gotten up  and Pastor Mark called me and asked me where I was. I responded that I was on my way to look for a place for me and my family to stay and then to look for a job because money was rapidly decreasing. He told me to listen very carefully and to follow instructions. I knew that he was in the anointing because he didn’t sound himself, so I did as I was instructed. He then asked me how far Walmart was from where I was at. I told him, not far. He instructed me to go to the nearest one and call him when I get there. “Glory be to God.” he said when I phoned him back that he was in assignment to send me $500.00. He did’t know what I was going through, how could he, I stopped calling. I was ashamed for doubting my God for the mess that I’d gotten my family in. Still God, Our God still was watching over me and taking care of me. (Thank you Jesus!)

Pastor Mark told me that God was not through, to get back to the hotel and call when I got to the front desk. I called as soon as I got there he then asked to speak to the front desk clerk, and after a few transitions he took care of the 534.45 bill for 4 nights. Hallelujah, Hallelujah to the Highest God!

God told him that he had to get that assignment done. That he could not rest until it was complete. I don’t know his financial status but I know that in that one afternoon was truly a blessing to me and my family. He said that the weight was off of him and that he didn’t want me to thank him not another time because he was given an order from God and to give thank to God.

Saints for all that you are going through, know that God got you and he loves you. Even though you feel all alone and have nowhere to go know that God has your back! he is truly performed a miracle through this Man of God. He is truly working through him and is a true vessel of God. I thank God for what he has done and what he is doing in this man’s life. Remember, “God may not come when you want him, but HE’S ALWAYS RIGHT ON TIME!!!!

“How Great Is Our God? All the World Will See How Great. How Great Is Our God!!”

How Great Is Our God!

WOW!!! God is good and He is in the blessing business!!! I called Elder Thompson on Saturday, 4/20/2013, about the purchase of a SUV on the spur of the moment. My great nephew, who is 8, will be visiting with me 4 weeks in the summer. I needed a vehicle to haul around our bikes this summer as I’ve planned a very active and busy 4 weeks visit for him, and the VW Beetle I have won’t work.

Well I had NO intentions on buying a vehicle Saturday but there was a used car sale in the lot of the Willow Grove Mall,which is in Pennsylvania . I decided to stop in to see what kind of vehicles they had and the prices, of course. I walked around the lot and looked at a few and decided that they were to expensive and I wasn’t sure how strong my credit was. Just when I was about to pack it in and leave, a salesman came over to me to inquire about what I was looking for and I told him. We looked around and then I spotted the SUV that was literally calling out to me.

The salesman asked me if I wanted to test drive it. I told him no because, as I’ve stated, I didn’t think my credit was strong enough. He gave me some preliminary figures of how much it could be per month with good credit. I gave him the go ahead to run my credit report and he said I was approved and that my credit was good__Hallelujah.

I was so shocked I couldn’t believe it; so, we went to the dealership to draw up the paperwork. They make you wait a good amount of time to see the financial manager for the loan agreement. While waiting I had second thoughts and since I was there alone, I felt I needed some guidance, so I called Elder Thompson.

I know he’s a true Man of God and, in the past, he has spoken prolific words of wisdom to me from God. I knew I was on the right track in seeking God’s approval. Elder Thompson asked me what I’ve been praying about in my closet alone and what has been on my heart. Then, he said, “in my spirit God is telling me that He, God, hears you and that He knows my heart and to get the vehicle.” The monthly payment fits into my budget and it’s a good deal, so I came home with the SUV.

I took the vehicle to my mechanic on Monday so he could check it over for me. Five hour later, the mechanic called and said, “it is in great shape and I have no worries, that it is a good vehicle.” GOD IS GOOD TO ME!!!

HOW GREAT IS MY GOD!!!!

I am truly blessed and I don’t deserve what God has done for me in the ultimate sacrifice of HIS SON, MY SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST!!!

God bless from Pastor Mark Thompson and the Word of Christ Ministries

He is a Mighty Awesome God.

A Mighty Awesome God

“But with out faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.”

During my Churches’ Anniversary Celebration of 10 years, we had a Guest Minister who talked about the 10 “C” in which we as Christians would experience this year. All 10 of the “C” consisted of test, trials and challenges. However, what is interesting through each test, trail and challenges; I learned that I can determine the final outcome based on my trust, hope and faith in God.

Needless to say the test, trails and challenges have continued to present themselves in many areas of my life, but God continues to deliver my family and I out of them all.  On Friday, March 8, 2013 another challenge visited my family.  At my point of desperation I visited my mother, who somehow always reminds me of who I am in Christ Jesus. After arriving at my mother’s house as usual she know something was wrong and began to go through her routine as I had expected. However, my heart was still heavy as I was facing so many challenges, and was wondering how the Lord would deliver me this time.

My mother knew she needed some additional prayer assistance, as I was getting ready to leave, she contacted Pastor Thompson. I was walking out the door, speaking doubt and unbelief, and my mother said, Pastor Thompson would like to speak to you.

Praise God for Pastor Thompson, because his opening sentence to me was, “I love you, but God loves you more.” These words got my attention. Immediately after that Pastor Thompson began to pray for me and my situation.  His prayer was mighty and strong as he began to decree and declare the blessings of God over my life, and curse the devils lies. His prayer was full of the faith of God as he spoke the word of God over me and my family and reminded the devil of his counterfeit operations, which would not prevail. As I listened to the prayer, the peace of God began to flood my being, and I knew somehow God would meet  our need.

As I was driving after I left my mother’s house, I began to praise and bless God simply because he is good. I began to  tell the Lord how much  I love him. suddenly, my cell phone rang, and it was friend telling me the Lord had instructed them to be a blessing to me. Then immediately after that call, my sister called me to inform me they were going to help me. Tears streamed down my face as the Lord had answered Pastor Thompson’s prayer for me in less than an hour. Joy filled my soul, as now; I had the money to get all of my utilities turned back on and pay another bill. Thank God  for my mother who knew I needed Pastor Thompson to help her reach me.

Pastor Thompson I truly thank God for your steadfast walk with the Lord, which enables you to go before the Throne of Grace to get prayers answered immediately. My family and I are eternally grateful to you for first loving God, and second for loving us. My prayer for you Sir, is that God bless you with the same measure of blessing in which you continue to sow into the lives of the multitude.

Eternally Grateful

The Hand of God At Work Again!!!

The Hand of God!!

Each Saturday Elder Thompson has Bible Study faithfully with Greg and his wife.  God always has a word in season for this family. On last Saturday, February 9, 2013  during the Bible Study, Elder Thompson spoke a word from God to Greg. He stated that God has a word for you to give to someone. This was nothing new, as Elder always has inspiring words from the Lord with directions.

Greg is currently on house arrest, this is another testimony of the goodness of God; as the verdict could have been much worst based on what he was convicted of. Moving forward, last Sunday afternoon while Greg was asleep, Greg wife was startled by a loud knock at the door. To her  surprise, when she open the door she was met by the police. They forcefully entered their home and dragged Greg outside shackling both his hands and ankles. All the while the Lord still had his hands upon this family. In the midst of all of the confusion, Glory be to God, Greg’s young child who was 2  was never awakened to the distress of seeing her father taking away.

Greg’s wife was extremely upset that this had occurred she called Elder Thompson for prayer, she was crying and was very upset. After hearing what was wrong, Elder Thompson shared with her that he did not have an urgency in his spirit, and that her husband would be allowed to come home.

Greg shared that once he had been processed into jail; he got on his knees and prayed to ask God for his divine will for his life. During this time he remembered that God had a specific task for him to complete, there was a word to be spoken that the Lord had assigned Greg to deliver. Greg acknowledged God, saying, “Lord use me here, I will do as you ask of me.”

There were other men in the jail cell with him. One man in particular slept all the time and said this was how he made time pass by quickly. Other men in the cell did not make this stay easy for Greg as they began to bother him. However, Greg held fast to the hope and promise of  the Lord which had been spoken to him. He refused to allow the men to detour his testimony and witness of the Lord.

Suddenly there was an opportunity to minister to the person who was asleep all the time. When the man woke up, Greg told the man God has something for you to do for him while you are here, this got the man’s attention.  The man replied, I have been told that I have a call on my life. Having obtained his attention, Greg began to share stories about the numerous times the hand of God had brought him victory upon victory. He shared how he became associated with Elder Thompson having Bible Study in a relatives repair shop, a garage where cars were worked on. After Greg finished sharing the countless testimonies with the man, he was inspired and had hope and assurance.

Immediately after Greg had shared the word of hope and assurance with the man in the cell, his victory came. The calls he was making to his wife went through as they would not before. Also, around                4:00 am  in the morning they came to inform Greg that he was going home. It is important to understand that according to Greg this is a lengthy process and can sometimes take week and even months. However, God saw fit to allow his servant to be released from jail, and returned him to his wife and child in a matter of hours, because of his obedience by sharing the word of God with the person to bring hope, assurance and inspiration.

Today, one week later February 16, 2013, Greg is praising God for his favor and goodness. In his words he is thankful to God and Elder Thompson for not giving up on him.  Each week without fail for the past 3 years Elder conducts Bible Study with and inspired word for Greg and his  family

God has commissioned us all as Christians according to Mark 16:15 to go into the world and preach the Gospel of peace and bring good tidings to every creature. Greg’s family is rejoicing today that Elder Thompson is taking heed by obeying the word of the Lord.

Amen.
