A dummy without a ventriloquist

Jesus is a ventriloquist. Will you be His dummy? (Matthew 10:20) Christ’s ventriloquism happens when ordinary people speak as led by the Spirit. “Christianity for Dummies”–Open your mouth and let Christ the Ventriloquist fill it with His words! –Psalm 81:10 (Learn how to start a Jesus’ Ventriloquist Group here.)

Paul Winchell said: “Ventriloquism today is in a slump.” That’s also true about Jesus’ ventriloquism through everyday people. Perhaps it’s time to let Jesus speak through you! (If Christ lives in you, then He can speak through you. Will you let Him?)

When ordinary Christians speak humbly, from the heart, the words of Christ come out. If we hold back the words of Jesus, we’re like a ventriloquist’s dummy with lockjaw.

Just saying what Jesus puts in your mouth is to flow with God’s words. To be a ventriloquist’s dummy in Jesus’ hands, is to speak with love & wisdom! Jesus’ ventriloquist dummies speak amazing words that surpass the wisdom of the wise.

Christians have been trained to sit in silence and passively listen to a speaker, however, Jesus said; “Speak in the light.” But don’t be a nominal Christian. Let Jesus be phenomenal in you!

A head faith’s not enough. We need Jesus “living on the inside roaring like a lion.” Perhaps the traditional form of church as a religious program to be watched by an audience has kept Christianity behind a fence. Maybe it’s time to go beyond church as usual.

Interactive, Spirit-led activity is more powerful than spectator passivity. Sitting on the premises is not the same as walking out God’s promises together. Jesus never said; “Come, be an audience.” He said; “Come, follow Me.”

Too many keep Jesus in the past or the future, and ignore Him in the present moment. Go beyond Jesus as history & religion to the living, present Jesus.

Let’s meet & let the Great Ventriloquist speak through all His dummies, not just one of them. At The Salvation Army Berry Street in Nashville, ordinary people let Jesus the Ventriloquist speak through them. Come see on Sundays at 10:45 am., 225 Berry St., 37207.

Jesus came to heal the missed up; not to thrill the dressed up. Don’t tolerate emotional pain. Take it to Jesus & be healed. Many people redefine Jesus according to their likes. Instead let Jesus redefine you.

Christ in you will be consistent with Christ in the writers of the Bible. The Bible’s words will heal your heart, but only if you read it:

Go ahead
Take a peek
In God’s Book;
You’ll see Christ’s real
If you’ll take a look.

Without Christ we’re like a dummy without a ventriloquist. Be a ventriloquist dummy for Jesus. Let Him move you & speak through you.


About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I co-lead a non-traditional expression of the body of Christ in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia" that is available in Kindle & paperback @ http://amzn.to/2nCr5dP
