Introduction

This is the Greenelines podcast. I'm Steve Greene on the Charisma Podcast Network. This show is brought to you by my book, Love Leads. I am so excited to talk with you about my book. I haven't done this. I feel a little funny about it. But at the same time, I believe the Lord gave me this book. It is inspired. I hope you would say that after you've read it. It's filled with Scripture, and concepts about leadership that really begin in the home. I've always felt that if we can't lead at home, we're surely not going to be able to lead in any business environment. So, I think it's a carry over. I'm trying to debunk that myth that you got to be strong and tough to be a good leader. I just believe you've got to do what Jesus did and love. If we can't love one another, if we can't demonstrate love at work, what are we doing leading? If God is love, and we don't love, how then are we supposed to lead? Are we supposed to lead by opinion or by the size of my biceps, or how loud I can yell? No, I think we're supposed to lead based on biblical principles. I've tried to identify those throughout this book. In fact, this book is a spiritual connection between all of our relationships and our productivity, that if we work together, we love one another, we treat each other with respect and honor and accountability … if we do that, we're going to be more productive, we're going to get more done and I teach a complete sermon on the productive home. I believe that we've got to learn to be more productive at home. This book of fine will help you with that.

I want to read you something John Bevere said about my book. Is this vain? I hope you don't think so. I hope it isn't because listen to what John Bevere says about my book. Love Leads is a must read for all those in a position of leadership. Now, before you say to me, I'm not in a position of leadership, may I say to you that yes, you are. You are to lead others to Christ, you are to lead your home. You are to lead your friends out of the valleys that they get into. You spend a lot of your day leading, whether you know it or not. I think Love Leads will help you. It's an important book. I have many good reviews on it on Amazon. I'd like to send you though, to Charisma to get you a good price and free shipping. It's loveleads.charismamag.com; love leads.charismamag.com.

·         Why the Bible Might be Nothing You Expected, But Everything You Need

 

Dr. Steve Greene: Sometimes we just get out of focus. Sometimes we lose our fire. Sometimes we lose our joy. I tell you what, when you leave this podcast today, you'll be refocused. You'll be rekindled and you'll be rejoicing. Because the name of the book we're going to look at today, written by Pastor Tom Anglin, is Refocus, Rekindle, Rejoice. That's our podcast today. I want to start in a little bit of a different kind of way. I’d like to read what Dr. Michael Brown said about your book. I don't often read these, but I think Michael Brown captured it better than I can. So, let me just read for a minute that what our friend Michael Brown had to say about you and I think our audience will identify with that.

“Tom Anglin has lived a life of miracles, with plenty of ups and downs. Here he shares his personal story with total honesty, holding nothing back. And best of all, he does it in a practical life-giving away.” I'll tell you what, I think this is an extremely practical book on the importance of refocusing our vision, of getting our faith rekindled, fired up, and then rejoicing in the fact that we've been renewed. So, brother, tell me how the Lord dropped this message on you and why you decided to write this book.

Pastor Tom Anglin: A number of years ago, people started telling me when they would hear some of the testimonies, hey, you need to write a book. I said I've never considered myself an author. I really, really don't. But we had a man that was known for prayer and fasting in his ministry and he would come and do workshops and churches on prayer and fasting. I was his driver this weekend that I was in the church where I was pioneering the Teen Challenge Center. I was driving him back to the airport, and I was telling him some of the things that got it done through the years. And he said, man, you, I'm telling you, you need to write a book. Well, this was years before I finally just said, OK, God. It's really kind of a story of through the years, some of the different places we've walked through as a family and in our different churches that we pastored. Just strong evidence was many eyewitnesses to the miraculous things that the Lord has done in response to prayer and just crying out to Him sometimes in desperation. But we found every time He came through. When you know that the Lord's got your back, you can face the world with a greater level of boldness.

Dr. Steve Greene: It’s pretty amazing that you wrote a book of this quality and caliber because you spent a lot of time a lot of your backslidden years when you actually felt that God couldn't forgive you. You were in that place where he just didn't think you were … I mean, it was just an intellectual problem … that you didn't feel forgiven. How did you get through that?

Pastor Tom Anglin: That was a major struggle for me, an agonizing struggle. It was four years after I came back to the Lord that I would still struggle with such condemnation from the past. It would just wipe me out sometimes. I was serving in the role of a youth pastor even at the time and had an effective ministry seeing lots of people saved. But inside, it was so hard for me to wrap my brain around God's forgiveness because of the depths of sin that I had been in in my backslidden years. And I knew better. I was raised in a very godly home. I had a very powerful encounter with Jesus when I was six years old at Park Avenue Baptist Church in Titusville, Florida. Peter Lord, who is still alive today, but I don't know if he's still preaching. I came to the Lord under his ministry. And as I grew up, my dad's occupation meant we were moving all the time. I was an eighth grader. I was never in the same school for a whole year and it was always as I got older, the party crowd that would draw me in. So, I fell deep into that. I fell far away from the Lord.

Dr. Steve Greene: You were looking for acceptance, because when you move a lot, you're looking for acceptance and join the wrong groups.

Pastor Tom Anglin: Absolutely. I was raised under the teaching of if you've ever been saved, you'll always be saved. So, it wasn't a matter of it wasn't a matter of I was taught if you sin, you're lost and you’ve got to run back. But I was still, instead of having eternal security … I had eternal insecurity was what I living with.

Dr. Steve Greene: That affects you. It really does affect your life.

Pastor Tom Anglin: Absolutely. And you said it exactly right. It was an intellectual problem. But the Lord really cornered me one day. He let me run with that for a little while, and I guess He was creating a story. But He cornered me one day and he said, Tom, you know what the deal is here. You don't place the same value on the blood that my son shed for you that I do. It hit me with such force and I realized it was the sin of unbelief is all it was. So, I had a major breakthrough ever since then. But I just I just believe that. in my mind, there's no way God could forgive me the things that I had done against Him. It would have been one thing if I didn't know any better, but I knew what I was doing. I was in complete rebellion against God.

Dr. Steve Greene: Pastor, there are a lot of people you lead right now, that you serve, that probably come to you in very similar conditions. I think many people are insecure today because they still struggle with that feeling of unforgiveness. They know in their mind they should be forgiven, but it's not there. They feel like they've done something or many things so bad that God just can't erase it like He promised in His Word. How have you help them? How does this training of what you went through helped you to be a better pastor?

Pastor Tom Anglin: It came from just a revelation out of Ephesians 3:19, which says to know the love of Christ, which passes knowledge. I realized what was being said was to know by experience a love so great. It's beyond your comprehension. The apostle John said in his epistle in 1 John 4, “And we have believed the love that God has for us.” I think that's it right there. It was just a matter of my taking God in His Word. When he told Moses to put the blood on the door. He said, when I see the blood, He didn't say when you see the blood. That's the thing is when we realize when we turn to Christ and in the blood is applied to us, He washes it away so completely, it can never be brought up again. So, I do meet people. I talked to people on my website. There's a testimony tab, and it takes you to a 20-minute video of what I just share in my heart. I've had so many people write to me, please pray for me. I've struggled with this all the time. And so it's just a constant, people out there that that absolutely believe there's no forgiveness for them.

Dr. Steve Greene: Let’s remind everyone that you have a personal website, tomanglin.com, where you can find those testimonies and ask pastor to pray for you. I loved to have pastors pray for me who've experienced the problem. Some pastors can't identify with some things because they didn't live it. They know the gospel, they know the word and they know how to preach it. But when someone's gone through the valley, they know a few things, don't you think?

Pastor Tom Anglin: Yes, painfully so. Yeah. If you don't mind Dr. Greene, just let me give a snippet from my testimony. I'd had a dream that I missed the Rapture. I knew the Rapture in those terms. I heard it many times growing up in church. I had a dream and I was so paralyzed with fear. People were ascending to heaven all around me and I couldn't get off the ground. So, in my dream, I ran and I saw a stump and I jumped up on the stump and I thought maybe that'll give me a boost. But no, I just fell on my face on the ground. I was horrified. I layed there for hours just gripping my sheets and I finally fell asleep and woke up to the smell of my mom cooking bacon in the kitchen. That's okay. And I was like, thank God they're still here. But it horrified me. I thought that was the message to me, you're not gonna make it. And then at a Black Sabbath concert in 1979 at Freedom Hall Civic Center, Johnson City, Tennessee, I had an encounter with hell. We were in front watching. It wasn't Black Sabbath playing when this happened, but an old band called Manfred Man’s Earth Band. I was mad because we didn't have enough pop between us to get high at that concert.

I thought. I've never been to a concert without being high. This stinks. So, while I'm standing there, I'm fast-forwarding this really quick, while I'm standing there, I was overcome by so much heat. I was telling my friend it’s so hot in here. I feel like I'm going to die. They said, it’s comfortable in here? What's wrong with you? I collapsed. I passed out from that intensity. When I did, I fell through the floor of that building and went down a corridor like it had been tuned out of rock; a giant corridor and there was story after story, like jail cells in this cylinder. And people were screaming at me, go back, go back. My hands and feet were chained behind me, like we call hogtied, and there was a gag in my mouth. And I thought I'd go back if I could, but I was going face first into hell. And the further I fell, the hotter it got. I thought, well, my mom and dad, the pastor's tried to tell me this place is real. And here I come, absolutely helpless and hopeless. As I got closer to this ring of fire, there was these huge, hideous, demonic creatures that Hollywood could never reproduce the things that I was seeing, and they were screaming, “we have him now, we have him now.

And right before the tallest one grabbed me, I was slapped back into consciousness and my friends were in a panic. It was so bad that it almost stopped the band from playing because I was right there at the stage in front. I saw all these people looking at me, I said, wow, leave me alone. And as soon as they leaned me back up against a wall, it was absolute ditto. The same exact thing happened verbatim again, and this time say they couldn't revive me and they thought they thought I'd died. They were screaming, get an ambulance, get an ambulance. The place was packed. Black Sabbath was huge back in the day. I finally was able to wave them off and say, don't. I came back into consciousness and they drug me off to the side and. long story short, after I came to my senses, it was like it never happened. I went back down there, my friends didn't want to go back with me. And so I said, well, I paid to see these guys. I blew it off like it never even happened. That's how hard my heart had become.

Greenelines Takeaways

1.      Healing is God’s idea. So, what a powerful message and move the Holy Spirit. I want to give you a takeaway that I really want you to listen to and take very seriously that healing is God's idea. Man doesn't have ideas about this. We have a heart and we feel for people, and we want them to be better. But healing is God's idea. So, if you were healed today and you're having trouble with it now, and you're having trouble believing it, take your healing by faith, just as you did in your salvation. Be healed in the name of Jesus, and claim that healing and know that you've had it done. Yes, this is very non-traditional. We're not in a church. There's no drums, there's no music. There's no steam and smoke in the church. And yet you were healed today. You take that healing and know that was God's idea. This was God's way of you being healed because you had to faith to listen and to hold on to this. Healing is real. God wants you to receive it, and to know it. And that's from our heart and not from any notes that I've written beforehand. But just to know that God did this for you.

2.      When you know the Lord as your back, you can face the world with boldness. You can face anything and be bold, because God has you. God's always has you. He's got guardian angels over you. He sends you a podcast that help with your healing for goodness sakes. God knows about this technology. He kind of knew about it long time ago, before it was ever used. He invented man who could create something like this, where the gospel can be spread. Guess what else? If we can spread the gospel with a microphone, we can spread healing.

3.      You don’t have to stay miserable and stuck. If you have developed a hardened heart, perhaps you've just had some bad experiences; people have been mean to you and you've struggled a little bit. He's gonna call you back from that. You don't have to die this way.  You don't have to stay this way and continue to live in, in what I would think would be misery. A hardened heart will just make you sad. It'll keep you sad. It'll keep your right there. And the longer we can keep you in that jail, the better. That's what the evil one would say to you. Come out from among them. You don't have to stay in that jail, bust out. Come on up. Get out of that and understand who you are in Christ.

So, in my dream, I ran and I saw a stump and I jumped up on the stump and I thought maybe that'll give me a boost. But no, I just fell on my face on the ground. I was horrified. I layed there for hours just gripping my sheets and I finally fell asleep and woke up to the smell of my mom cooking bacon in the kitchen. That's okay. And I was like, thank God they're still here.

And I thought I'd go back if I could, but I was going face first into hell. And the further I fell, the hotter it got. I thought, well, my mom and dad, the pastor's tried to tell me this place is real. And here I come, absolutely helpless and hopeless. As I got closer to this ring of fire, there was these huge, hideous, demonic creatures that Hollywood could never reproduce the things that I was seeing, and they were screaming, “we have him now, we have him now.

We have a heart and we feel for people, and we want them to be better. But healing is God's idea. So, if you were healed today and you're having trouble with it now, and you're having trouble believing it, take your healing by faith, just as you did in your salvation. Be healed in the name of Jesus, and claim that healing and know that you've had it done. Yes, this is very non-traditional. We're not in a church. There's no drums, there's no music. There's no steam and smoke in the church. And yet you were healed today. You take that healing and know that was God's idea. This was God's way of you being healed because you had to faith to listen and to hold on to this. Healing is real. God wants you to receive it, and to know it. And that's from our heart and not from any notes that I've written beforehand. But just to know that God did this for you.

2.      When you know the Lord as your back, you can face the world with boldness. You can face anything and be bold, because God has you. God's always has you. He's got guardian angels over you. He sends you a podcast that help with your healing for goodness sakes. God knows about this technology. He kind of knew about it long time ago, before it was ever used. He invented man who could create something like this, where the gospel can be spread. Guess what else? If we can spread the gospel with a microphone, we can spread healing.

3.      You don’t have to stay miserable and stuck. If you have developed a hardened heart, perhaps you've just had some bad experiences; people have been mean to you and you've struggled a little bit. He's gonna call you back from that. You don't have to die this way.  You don't have to stay this way and continue to live in, in what I would think would be misery. A hardened heart will just make you sad. It'll keep you sad. It'll keep your right there. And the longer we can keep you in that jail, the better. That's what the evil one would say to you. Come out from among them. You don't have to stay in that jail, bust out. Come on up. Get out of that and understand who you are in Christ.
