by Rupert Lothian
About the author
Bishop Rupert George Lothian was born in1953 in Kingston, Jamaica, West Indies. He was called by God through the inspiration of his Father, Pastor, and had his second birth (according to Acts 2:38) in August 1962. At the tender age of 9, he preached his first message in a place called Spicy Hill, in the parish of Trelawney. After migrating to Canada, he met his wife, and got married on November 29, 1975. He lived there for 43 years with his wife, Hyacinth, and four children: Novelette, Elysia, and O’Conner. Elder Lothian served as Superintendent of the Sunday School Ministry at Bethel Apostolic Church of Jesus Christ, in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada for over 25 years. This is Bishop Lothian’s fourth book. While he does not consider himself to be an author, he is not a novice to the Word, having preached the gospel of Jesus Christ for over Forty-Five years now. During these years of service to the Lord, he has witnessed aspects of the ministry that weigh heavily on his heart and mind. He struggles with what he calls “Ministerial Misfits” men and women who are trying to be pastors, but were never called to be such in the ministry. Therefore, they are living out of the will of God in a leadership role. As a Christian worker under the steady leadership of a pastor, these men and women serving as second in command would make a tremendous impact. They could live fruitful lives helping other as mates, but not in a leadership position. However, as captains of the ship, or pastors, they sometimes create havoc in the ministry.

Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures, And said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behoved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day: And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. Luke 24:45-47 (KJV)
He baptizes three thousand converts
Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do? Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. Acts 2:37-38 (KJV) it all started at Acts 2:38.
