Did You Know about John Wesley? As an author, I am required to do a great deal of research. This research resulted in some very interesting facts, which I am sharing with you. - John Wesley (28 June 1703 – 2 March 1791) was an Anglican cleric and Christian theologian. Wesley is largely credited, along with his brother Charles Wesley, as founding the Methodist movement which began when he took to open-air preaching in a similar manner to George Whitefield. In contrast to Whitefield's Calvinism, Wesley embraced the Armenian doctrines that were dominant in the 18th-century Church of England. Methodism in both forms became a highly successful evangelical movement in Britain and later in the United States. His work also helped lead to the development of the Holiness movement and Pentecostalism. Wesley helped to organize and form societies of Christians throughout Great Britain, North America and Ireland as small groups that developed intensive, personal accountability, discipleship and religious instruction ...

It's the birthday of hymn writer and Methodist Charles Wesley, born in Epworth, England (1707). He went to Oxford, where he was more interested in socializing than in Scripture — he wrote later: "My first year at College I lost in diversions." His older, more serious brother, John, wrote about Charles: "He pursued his studies diligently, and led a regular, harmless life; but if I spoke to him about religion, he would warmly answer, 'What, would you have me be a saint all at once?' and would hear no more." During his years at Oxford, Charles Wesley had a spiritual awakening. He wrote to John: "It is owing, in great measure, to somebody's prayers (my mother's most likely) that I am come to think as I do; for I cannot tell myself how or why I awoke out of my lethargy." He formed a group with three fellow students, and they devoted their days to studying the Bible and praying, minimizing everything else — not only socializing but also eating and sleeping. They were mocked by fellow students. John Wesley w ...

My hymn for today: Joy To The World. Two brilliant songwriters – although they never met – together created one of Christmas’s most lasting songs. Each of these two musical icons ignored established ways and blazed new trails, both trying to bring religious music into a new era. Isaac Watts, born in 1674 in Southampton, England, was very much his father’s son. The elder Watts (also named Isaac) was a revolutionary protestant church figure in Britain. Watts spent time as a personal tutor, then became the assistant to Dr. Isaac Chauncey at Mark Lane Independent Chapel in London. Within three years the now twenty-six year old Isaac became the minister. Through his hymns and writings, Watts became one of the best known clerics in England, inspiring others such as Charles Wesley and John Newton to also write new music for the church. It was while studying Psalm 98 that he penned his most famous song. He actually wrote it as a four stanza poem. Forty-four years after Watt’s death, Lowell Mason was bor ...

God is in charge of the world Is it not reassuring to know that God is King of kings? For the Lord is a great God, the great King above all gods. Psalm 95:3 NLT When the godly are in authority, the people rejoice. But when the wicked are in power, they groan. A just king gives stability to his nation… Proverbs 29:2,4 NLT Come, Thou Almighty King Come, Thou Almighty King, Help us Thy name to sing, Help us to praise; Father! all-glorious, O'er all victorious, Come, and reign over us, Ancient of Days. Come, Thou Almighty King (v1), AUTHOR UNKNOWN Presidents, kings, and other ruling officials should be honored and prayed for. So wrote the apostles Peter and Paul, who lived under the Roman emperors. But we must never forget that the King of kings and Lord of lords deserves our ultimate honor and complete allegiance. This hymn appeared anonymously in George Whitfield's Hymn Book, published in 1757. It is usually attributed to Charles Wesley, but was probably published anonymously for a good reason. Scholars t ...
Julia and I are having a discussion about Church music, and specifically how church music in the Roman churches has diverged, in the last century or so, from church music in the Anglican and nonconformist churches. "I blame Wesley", I say. The trouble is that neither of my default Wesleys (John Wesley, Charles Wesley) have anything to do with either of her default Wesleys (Wesley Crusher, Wesley Wyndam-Pryce). Cue much confusion.

Prayer Line! Our concept of the Church as the Healing Ministry: John Wesley (1703 – 1791) was one of the foremost English theologians. And during those days he was sent out to do some missionary works as a cleric by his Church. Then on his way back he met someone and entered into a conversation with him theologically. And the person began to ask him if he has the SAVING FAITH. To his greatest surprise as a “Certified Theologian” everything that he had said; his companion would say again, Mr. John Wesley this is not the SAVING FAITH. Then, he began to search the Bible based on what his companion had made known to him, and when he had reached home, he went to visit a local Church. It was what he saw and has heard there that made him to begin to feel disappointed with his Church which was the Anglican Church. Later on, and with his brother Charles Wesley they began a great “Revival” which gave birth to the “Methodist Church.” According to one story, one Pastor had spent most of his life in Indi ...

WOW what a awesome Saturday. Got a wee bit sidetracked in a GOOD way, when my old friend Cindy McCormick who was at cowboy church when I started there, came by and gifted me three quarts of fresh awesome goats milk. Am SO overjoyed she moved closer to me rather than the property in Copperopolis. Now I can see her goats more often. All 200+ of them. And I agreed to visit her little brown church in Burson, where the tow truck driver who helped me a week ago also attends. Small world. The pastors wife from the Mennonite church was so nice and asked me to visit them, which I promised I would do,and then I visited over the fence literally with a friend at the Methodist church (behind me) who said she really likes their new pastor Anne Schlesinger. All I know about the Methodists are John and Charles Wesley, whose works I have read. Oh and the Salvation Army and Glide Memorial Church in San Francisco whose pastor Cecil Williams is so revered and admired. Had a tinge of a sore throat so remembered what our frie ...

Charles Wesley wrote songs of the triune God to the tune of bar songs. The key is the words not the tune.
Heard a great sermon Sunday challenging the church to continue using the old hymns and to not fall prey to the shallow songs coming from the contemporary side of Christianity (a.k.a "CCM"). By way of illustration, the pastor preaching read the lyrics of one of CCM's more recent "hit" songs called "Break Every Chain" by Jesus Culture. Read for yourself the lyrics and see just how wanting these songs are. How do songs like these rise in the church ranks? It's because the artists, and those listening to their songs, are not grounded enough in the word of God. There is no doctrinal depth to produce songs that have real meaning, like the old hymns. That's not to condemn every contemporary song. My wife has written over 80 of them. And there are some modern songs we sing that are wonderful. But that is not the norm, I'm afraid. It's time for the church to reject these biblically anemic songs, and replace them with songs that have real deep biblical meaning, like Charles Wesley's "Arise, My Soul Arise," which we ...

Day 6 started out with an incredible helicopter ride over the Kalahari looking for animals. After the copter we hunted a nice Buffalo that goes down as the best hunt of my life. We stalked up to a group of buffalo. One of the same buffaloes wanted to fight our land cruiser the day before, so we were all very AWARE of the danger. Anyone that claims buffalo hunting isn't dangerous is lying, we all were very aware of each climb-able tree around us. Wesley M Wilson Jr dropped the buff with one shot. Then a different buffalo tried to kill it and energized the wounded buff. We eased up as the buff stood up to confront us. After 3 more shots, the last in the brain- the buff finally died. Wesley M Wilson Jr wore is "go pro" head camera that caught the entire action plus we had a professional camera man. Incredible.

Two men, Jack Smith and Joe Brown die and go to heaven. They're the same age and are born-again Christians. They arrive at the pearly gates together. As they wall through, a crowd comes running up. There standing before them are Noah, Abraham and Sarah, David and Jonathan, Ruth, Esther, Peter, Paul,John and Mary. In addition to all these greats from church history are there with them- people like Martin Luther, John and Charles Wesley, John Knox, Kathryn Kuhlman and many more. All these great men and women come running up to Jack Smith and Joe Brown.Noah steps forward and says, "Tell us what's happening down there on earth. What has your life been like?" "Yes, tell us," Abraham adds. "we've been waiting to hear all about it." All the others murmur excitedly, -Yes tell us-Yes tell us." Joe Brown clears his throat to say something, but Jack Smith cuts him off and starts in. "well, you just wouldnt believe it. It is so horrible down there. The darkness is so strong. Sin is rampant. AIDS is killing people by ...

Lk 15:4 “Suppose one of you has a hundred sheep and loses one of them. Does he not leave the ninety-nine in the open country and go after the lost sheep until he finds it?” On 24 May 1738 John Wesley went to a meeting in Aldersgate Street in London. There as he felt his heart strangely warmed and was converted. And so within the Methodist Tradition each year we celebrate at this time Aldersgate Sunday – as we give thanks for John and Charles Wesley, the founding fathers of the Methodist Movement. And also on Aldersgate Sunday, some celebrated words from John Wesley, sometimes referred to as Wesley’s four “all”s – All need to be saved All may be saved All may know that they are saved All may be saved to the uttermost. Wesley does not say Some may be saved Most may be saved People like us may be saved Nearly everyone may be saved No: all may be saved – In terms of our Gospel passage, when 99 are safely gathered in, even one sheep is still out there on the moor, God will not shrug his shoulde ...

dear friend Suppose Shakespeare had died before he wrote his poems and plays—the potential of Macbeth would have been buried. Suppose Michelangelo had died before he painted the Sistine Chapel or DaVinci the Mona Lisa—the beauty of their paintings would have been lost. Suppose Mozart had died with all that music in his bosom. Suppose Moses had died before he saw the burning bush…Paul before he met Jesus on the Damascus Road…Abraham before Isaac was born. How different the pages of Scripture and history would be. Suppose Martin Luther had died without writing the thesis…Charles Wesley without penning the hymns…John Wycliffe without translating the Bible into English. How different the history of the Church might have been. Can you imagine how many great works of art, music, and literature are buried in the graveyard near your house? Can you imagine how many solutions to the problems we face today are buried with someone you knew? People die without getting out their full potential. They fail to ...
JOHN HAGEE after trip I say "amazingly" because the Prince of Darkness has fought us tooth and tong in England. Two years ago, I was interrogated 3 hours and 30 minutes by a series of interrogators before being allowed into England. They took my briefcase and read every line of every sermon. They took our luggage and removed every garment in every suitcase. It was harassment on steroids. I was later told by someone in a position to know that the reason I was treated so shabbily was because the M.P. from Birmingham was politically motivated to cause this harassment. This year, the United Methodists in England, who have taken a pro-Palestinian position and a hard stand against Israel, did not allow us to use the John Wesley Auditorium we had used before because I am pro-Israel. Think about that! An auditorium built in memory of two great Bible preachers, John and Charles Wesley, is now controlled by a denomination that rejects the Word of God concerning Israel and the Jewish people. The good news is this .. ...
Love Divine Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies." John 11:25 Charles Wesley was one of the most prolific Christian hymn writers of all time. It was said that he'd had the gift since childhood; that after he received Jesus as his Lord and Savior the words flowed freely from his pen. When we allow God to become the center of our lives, amazing ...

Here's a hymn from Charles Wesley called "O Horrible Decree" about and against Calvinism. I especially like stanzas 1, 3, 5, 6, 7, and 14 as he defends the goodness of God and condemns the blasphemy of Calvinism. "My life I here present, My heart’s last drop of blood, O let it all be freely spent In proof that thou art good, Art good to all that breathe, Who all may pardon have: Thou willest not the sinner’s death, But all the world wouldst save." +  Ah! Gentle, gracious Dove, And art thou griev’d in me, That sinners should restrain thy love, And say, “It is not free: It is not free for all: The most, thou passest by, And mockest with a fruitless call Whom thou hast doom’d to die.”  They think thee not sincere In giving each his day, “ Thou only draw’st the sinner near To cast him quite away, To aggravate his sin, His sure damnation seal: Thou shew’st him heaven, and say’st, go in And thrusts him into *** ” +  O horrible decree Worthy of whence it came! Forgive their hellis ...

“The Holy Spirit” By J. Wesley Wilkey, Pastor Faith United Methodist Church, Champaign, Illinois May 19, 2013 The Day of Pentecost (Last Sunday, my wife Sheryl and I took a weekend off up in Chicago to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. Late that Sunday morning, as we were walking from our hotel in the Loop to the theater six blocks away, we happened to cross in front of St. Peters Catholic Church of the Loop on Madison Street. We decided to enter the church “on a lark” just to see the inside of it, not realizing that the 11:00 Mass was just about to begin. We snuck in and sat down in the back pew off in the corner of the sanctuary just as the processional hymn was beginning; a hymn, ironically enough, by Charles Wesley, the brother of Methodism’s founder, John Wesley. Immediately, I recognized the smell of incense in the air. The melodious sounds of the great pipe organ and the choir of trained voices came from the balcony behind and above us, as if from heaven. Just sitting th ...
America’s Great Awakenings Early American colonists began their life in the "new world" with dreams of religious freedom. Because of their influence on following generations, the United States has been marked by periods of increased spiritual fervor, many of which have transcended denominational, racial, and gender barriers while subsequently impacting the country's social and political climate.First Great Awakening The roots of America's First Great Awakening can be traced to European Christians in the early 18th century, particularly among splinter groups that emerged from the Protestant Reformation, such as the Moravians, German Lutherans, and Anabaptists. In England, individuals such as George Whitefield and John and Charles Wesley helped initiate the beginnings of the Great Awakening through their emphasis on the deeper spiritual life as outlined in New Testament Christianity. In addition to their message, their effectiveness was due, in part, to their itinerant preaching in fields and other open-a ...

"Methodism was born in song" and "Methodists sing their faith" are common sayings associated with Methodism and more so Ghana Methodism. It is to one man who allowed himself to used by the LORD that we owe our special "trait". To him this tribute is paid by a people forever grateful to God for one like CHARLES WESLEY. Charles Wesley, M.A. was the great hymnwriter of the Wesley family,—perhaps, taking quantity and quality into consideration, the great hymnwriter of all ages. Charles Wesley was the youngest son and 18th child of Samuel and Susanna Wesley, and was born at Epworth Rectory, Dec. 18, 1707. In 1716 he went to Westminster School, being provided with a home and board by his elder brother Samuel, then usher at the school, until 1721, when he was elected King's Scholar, and as such received his board and education free. While he was at Westminster, his father received a letter from a wealthy Irishman, asking him if he had a son named Charles, and if so offering to adopt him and make him his hei ...
