What do you want for Christmas?
Keep this mind. I found out approximately seven minutes before the service started that I was teaching in the main service. I say this to demonstrate the power of the Holy Spirit within me and what He can do for those who trust Him. The dramatized parts were added after the teaching was completed with some editing. Enjoy the teaching!
For some people, this teaching may be a challenge. However, my responsibility to my heavenly Father is to teach the truth.
The title of this dramatized audio teaching is "The Four Smooth Stones".
In this teaching, you will discover one valuable precious gift.
I believe that this gift should be desired and be at the top of all lists including Christmas gifts. One reason why is because of the increasing dangers in this world.
This gift will totally enhance your prayer and study time with the Lord Jesus!

And every one who hears these words of mine and does not do them will be like a foolish man who built his house upon the sand; and the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell; and great was the fall of it."
