Fear and Anger or Peace and Joy with Tony Cooke FS EP 130
Family and Stories
Two emotions, fear and anger, have been running rampant across our nation. For some, fear has turned to panic, and anger has turned to rage. For others it has led to disappointment, depression, and a sense of hopelessness. And more than a few are simply confused. This podcast is not an analysis of politics in America. It’s not about who is right or who is wrong. It’s about clear perspective and walking with peace and joy while storms rage. Tony uses the story of the Apostle Paul when he faced rioters in Ephesus in AD56 to help us understand and navigate what we are experiencing today. Listen to “Fear and Anger or Peace and Joy” on the Family and Stories Podcast.
454: Miracles and the Supernatural throughout Church History (feat. Tony Cooke)
The Shaun Tabatt Show
The Body of Christ is ordained to walk in the supernatural. That has always been the plan, and you have a part to play in the mercy, power, and love of God being demonstrated in the earth. Despite claims that miracles ceased with the apostles, Jesus said that believers would do the same works He did and even greater works (John 14:12). From the book of Acts until today, the Spirit of God has demonstrated an enduring pattern of confirming the gospel through signs, wonders, and miracles. And today, the Holy Spirit desires to continue His pattern by empowering YOU. Discover the miraculous works of the Holy Spirit through individuals like Ignatius of Antioch, Tertullian, Basil of Caesarea, Augustine, Martin Luther, John Wesley, Charles Finney, and many more. These accounts will energize you, teach you, and bolster your faith to cooperate with the Holy Spirit, moving in the same supernatural compassion and power that Jesus did as you carry His life-transforming message to the world around you. Get Tony's book Miracles and the Supernatural throughout Church History: Remarkable Manifestations of the Holy Spirit From the First Century Until Today.
