Reception For Evangelist Marva Lee Is Saturday

Sunday, July 14, 2013

A reception celebrating the 12 years of ministry of evangelist Marva A. Lee will be held Saturday from 4-6 p.m. at the J. T. McDaniel Plaza, 1401 E. Third St., Ste. B, (across from the old Dr. Sherrod’s Building).  Ms. Lee is the president and founder of MarvelousWorks Ministries.  The Ministries’ primary focus is to preach the gospel to the poor, to heal the brokenhearted and to set the captives free.       

As part of her evangelist outreach, Ms. Lee formerly hosted a radio ministry for three years called: “Power Of Deliverance” on WNOO 1260.  Ms. Lee is a vocalist and speaker in the greater Chattanooga area and surrounding cities.        

As mentioned earlier, Evangelist Lee has been in ministry for 12 years and said the number 12 holds special significance from a biblical perspective.  First off, it represents divine authority and appointment, as well as governmental foundation and perfection, and shows completeness. The high priest’s breastplate, used for judgment, had 12 stones representing the 12 tribes. During the period of the judges, 12 judges judged Israel.  At age 12, Jesus appeared at the temple. Jesus ordained 12 apostles, who were sent with authority to preach the Gospel and to be witnesses of His resurrection. After His resurrection, Jesus told the apostles that He had been given all authority in heaven and earth — the divine authority of God.  

Ms. Lee said, "As God’s chosen vessel it is my prayer that in the next 12 years, God would find me continuing to do the work of an evangelist, to preach the word, to be instant in season and out of season, to heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out demons: because freely I have received, and freely, I shall give."

Eric Youngblood: The Pain Of Falling Apart, Noon-Day Demons, And The Help Of Spiritual Endorphins

“Grace is not opposed to effort but to earning…. Apart from Christ we can do nothing, so if we do nothing, we can be sure it is apart from him.” These clarifying, and now famous, words from Dallas Willard are recalibrating to us on the days when we find ourselves confused about the relationship between faith, works, and grace.  Are they unrelated neighbors living ...

Exempt Volunteer Fire Departments From Procurement Policies - And Response

The Hamilton County Commission just grouped a bunch of departments together in an attempt to reign in the CVB. I haven't spoken to any commissioners, but I truly believe it was unknowingly. By mandating that all non profits that receive 25 percent of their revenue follow county procurement policies, they might as well have padlocked all local volunteer fire departments. We expect ...

Roy Exum: The Saturday Funnies

I am constantly amazed by the many emails that I receive every day. Quite curiously, I get a heavier load than I would ever have thought because the big search engines on the Internet send my Chattanoogan.com stories far and wide. Even the local ones on the Chattanooga area bring comments and I am deeply flattered. I try to read them and lament I haven’t the time to respond the ... (click for more)
