Praise Ye The Lord!! Let everything that hath breath Praise the Lord!!
My name is Kelvin Franklin and I was called to be an Apostle by the Lord and I prefer to be called simply Kelvin. I’m a humble servant of the Lord and a servant to God’s people to assist them in growing to perfection (Eph. 4:11-16).
I did not choose or desire to be an Apostle. God called me first then showed others my calling and they approached me before I would acknowledge what God had already showed me in my heart. I told the Lord that I would not go of my own but I would be willing to follow him where ever he would lead me.
I am committed to the teaching and education of the disciples of Jesus Christ (Eph. 4:11-16). I presently serve as the Apostle and founder of Alpha and Omega Christian Worship Center. Alpha and Omega is located in Newport News and we are apart of God’s Power Ministry, Inc. of Austin, Texas.
The Lord lead me to establish this blog to share the spiritual wisdom and insights that he has placed in my spirit. I do not ask any to simply accept what is written here but to earnestly pray for the Holy Spirit to lead them to the truth (John 14:26). God has given me and other to help equip the body of Christ for his soon return. He speaks to us to teach but other should earnestly search out the truth so they want be mislead (1 John 2:26-29). I am one of many who seek to serve the Father through Jesus Christ in spirit and in truth (John 4:23-24). You can read more detailed/comprehensive lessons on our associated Bible Place Teaching Blog. There are additional teaching and reference materials on our Bible Place web site which the Lord lead us to launch in April 1998.
I pray that you would search the scriptures and seek God’s wisdom and understanding. I pray that we inspire disciples everywhere to grow in the knowledge and truth of Jesus Christ. Remember that if you lack wisdom all you have to do is ask of God who giveth liberally unto all who ask (Jam. 1:5-8) and God does not withhold because he did not plan for any to be lost but for all to come to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ through the word of God he’s provided in the form of the bible (2 Pet. 3:9-12)(John 3:16).
