Quoting Quiverfull: Holding Back Miracles?

Quoting Quiverfull: Holding Back Miracles? January 2, 2014

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies – Don’t Hold Back Divine Miracles

Proverbs 26:8 tells us that to bind a stone in a sling is as bad as giving honor to a fool! A stone in a sling is not meant to be bound up but to go forth to hit the target. It goes forth to slay the enemy. In the same way, we are foolish to bind up God’s truth and hide it. God intends His words to go out from our mouths to accomplish God’s plans and purposes (Isaiah 55:11). The spoken word has great power. God created the world with His Word. Many times, we hold back divine miracles from happening in our lives because we are too shy, too afraid, or too lazy to speak out the word of the Lord.

  • Can I just say that this is simply more mumbo-jumbo superstitious verbal vomit from the uneducated one? I’m a Christian. I believe in prayer and in miracles. But – I’m sick and tired of superstition and ignorance lighting the way backward. During my three years of hell, a friend kept telling me, that I shouldn’t give words to power. I still don’t understand that one. I should pray a certain way. Maybe I have unrepentant sin. Maybe ….. yada yada yada Well, maybe the problem is that no one is buying real estate these days. Maybe I’m just not submissive enough. I guess the problems is the fact that I don’t have a strong male figure to tell me what God wants me to know, the way Nancy Campbell does…. etc. etc… yada yada yada

    Oh, wait, maybe it’s not a game or an agenda with me. That could be the difference.

    This is drivel. Nancy Campbell, like most of the other antifeminist robots make my skin crawl, and I think I loathe this one as much as I loathe Debi Pearl. Nancy Campbell is so judgmental and superstitious.

    I can’t follow this at all. Is is just me, or is this just a word-salad mash up with some catch-phrases thrown in to attract the faithful?

  • Saraquill

    It’s a jumble of words she thinks sound good.

  • Madame

    I’ve heard all those things too. My words were going to bring so much misery to me and my family. Even saying “I have a bad throat” was askign for trouble, you shouldn’t own illness!!!!! I should start naming and claiming, speaking forth what I wanted and bla der bla.
    Yeah. Whatever.

    Pretty weak god she has there, that a mere human can stop him so easily.
