It Is Normal to Christians

holy-spirit

 Some Christians believe that miracles do not occur today through Christians.

I disagree and here is why: Jesus Himself promised that we could and would do miracles when we have strong faith. I do not see where he specifically says it will end with the disciples. Indeed does the Bible not state that old men would have dreams as a sign of the end of times? Matthew 10:1, Mark 16:16-18, 2 John 14:12 The purpose of the miracles is to confirm the pastors calling. Exodus 4:3-9, 30:7:10, 12 Numbers 16:28-35 I Samuel 12:17, 18 I Kings 17:24 Mark 9:39; 16:17-18 John 3:2:6:14, 36; 11:42 Acts 2:22 2 Corinthians 12:12

I had one experience in Asia where I was witnessing to a woman. She kept on laughing and questioning what made me so sure there was a God and that he had arranged for us to meet and share a Bible study. One day she informed me she had a friend whose husband was diagnosed with terminal cancer. I informed her I would pray for him. After the third day the doctors examined him only to discover that there was no cancer even though he was not taking any medication. She was ecstatic when she emailed me so that is why I know it is true.

That the message is from God Exodus 4:3-9, 30; 7:10, 12 Judges 6:11-21 I Kings 17:24; 18:37-39 2 Kings 20:8-11 Matthew 11:2-5 Mark 16:2 John 5:36 Acts 2:22; 8:6
Hebrews 2:3-4

That the miracles increase faith. John 2:11, 23; 5:53:7:31; 11:45;20:30-31 Numbers 14:11 Acts 9:42

There was an Asian man who I was witnessing to that was a new believer. One day he shared with me that being middle aged he was afraid of losing his job because the company he was working for was going bankrupt and he would be unable to get another job. After three days of my praying a company called him to offer him a job where he did not have to travel (he was a salesman who was always travelling about the country),had good benefits and more wages. Considering there are millions of younger unemployed men and women in his field with the latest skills and he was nearing retirement age wouldnt you consider that a miracle?

No matter who is the vessel God uses to bring about a miracle or healing,it is God Who is to get the glory for it.

Chronicles 7:3 Matthew _:8; 15:31 Mark 2:12 Luke 5:25-26; 7:15-16:13 13; 17:15-16; 18:43 Acts 4:21; 14:11-15 John 2:11; 11:4

This is a hard one for me. I have had people repeatedly praise me for the wonderful things that occur to them when associating with me. I always inform them to give praise to Jehovah, not to me. I feel very uncomfortable with it.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Jireh (God our provider) bless me to be alert to those with whom You have given signs and wonders to to point us to You. Please bless me to humbly and wisely use these awesome tools You have given me the responsibility to use to point others to You. I sincerely ask this in the name of He who used them in a wise manner Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

To Find True Rest.

HE GIVES ABUNDANTLY

Yes, my soul, find rest in God; my hope comes from him. Psalm 62:5 Holy Bible, New International Version

Where do you go to find rest in this face paced shallow world.

To find true rest from anxieties of finances I go to Jehovah and He guides me to the comforting and best financial advice there is in the Bible (number one is to never go in debt. Save for it and be patient).

When the stress of relationships weighs me down like a rock around my ankles and thrown into the sea I go to Jehovah and He guides me to verses in the Bible on how to handle difficult relationships (many times the advice is difficult to follow but will lead to a lot less stress, fights and bitterness in life. I know His advice has improved my relationship peace tremendously by teaching me how to avoid or handle the ones who suck the life out of you).

When I encounter health problems I go to Jehovah and He guides me to Bible verses that teach me proper diet and exercise (both mentally and physically). I know when it is time for me to depart from this world I will go to Jehovah and He will guide me to Bible verses that comfort and reassure me He is waiting to guide me home upon my departure from this world.

Where do I go to find Divine rest while enjoying heavenly communion with my Beloved Father?

Why, in Gods Cathedral of course.

And where is this amazing Cathedral?

Any place in nature.

My preferred places are in an isolated beach, my a quiet gentle little rapids or in a forest or laying under the summer stars.

It is when I am in the beauty of His creation that the weight of the world disintegrates to be replaced with Gods amazing peace and love. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Heseh (God is love) for the amazing privilege of communing with You in Your awesome creation. Thank You my love for the comfort, strength, wisdom, healing, peace and encouragement that You bless me with when I pour out my aching heart into Thy loving arms. I deeply thank you my Love in the name of my Heavenly Healer Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

Slumbering Worshipers

You, God, are my God earnestly I seek you. Psalm 63:1 New International Version

How much do you seek Jehovah every day?

How much do you look for His beauty that exists all around us(if you desire to see His amazing beauty just go sit in nature, relax and look all around you, listen to the sweet songs of the birds, dink in the sweet fragrance of the wildflowers in bloom in the early morning.)?

How much do you praise Him for these loving gifts?

How much do you seek His financial advice (I dare say that we would not be facing financial disaster in our country or in so many folks lives if they did this)?

How obedient are you to His all wise advice?

How much do you consult Him about your lifestyle (how much less disease would we have if we maintained a healthy diet like suggested in the Bible and how much less disease would there be if folks were less sexually promiscuous and more nurturing in loving relationships ?)?

How much enjoyment do you find in being with Him every day (again we would not have so many souls in debt up to their eyeballs if they sought to worship Jehovah as much as they worship things)?

How much time do you spend reading your Bible compared to how much time you spend on the internet?

How much time do you spend listening to Christian music compared to the rubbish they disgustingly call music today?

How much time do you spend talking with Him compared to how much time you waste texting all your good time friends?

How much do you seek His wise advice in your relationships (How much less heartache and divorce would there be if we all did this, how much less trouble we would endure at school and work?) and are obedient unto His advice?

How much do you actively ask Jehovah to reveal Himself to you?

I would rather spend an hour in prayer with my Beloved than a day with the most interesting man or most beautiful woman. Joseph- Anthony: Green

SPIRITUAL BREATH

How much do you ask Jehovah to bless you with a more intense loving relationship with Him?

“I believe a very large majority of church-goers are merely unthinking, slumbering worshipers of an unknown God.” Charles H. Spurgeon

Prayer: Please bless me Jehovah Pryyand (God is my friend) to always nurture a loving relationship with You and to always consult You and be obedient unto Your will. I humbly request this in the name of He who always was and is Your most obedient and loving Son Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sweet sunshine of Jesus’ beautiful love bless you today and every day.

They were but Flesh.

For He remembered that they were but flesh. Psalm 78:39 New King James Version

Being of the flesh means we all have weaknesses and weak moments.

Occasionally we all give in to sinful desires. Come on now, have we not all bought something we could not afford and then regretted it later? Or how about the times when the mouth is in action before the brain is in gear and we say something we regret later?

Some call it human weakness.

As well we all have our weaknesses built into us from heredity, it is in our genes. So in some families alcoholism is heredity (which is why it is important to know your family roots and to teach them to your children).

Let Your tender mercies come to me, that I may live. Psalm 119:77 New King James Version

Do not allow the devil to deceive you into believing that when you sin Jehovah is mad at you and He rejects you and you lose your salvation. Do not allow the devil to con you into believing the lies that you must perform some act to be forgiven (like in the catholic church with their praying to beads or saying hail Maries).

You need to approach our loving Father in Heaven confess what you did, admit it was wrong and ask for forgiveness. Do it in the name of Jesus whose sacrificial blood has cleansed you of your sins when you repent.

 

Repent means to admit what you did. Admit it was wrong. And, when applicable make amends for the damage your sin has caused others.

If in your sin you have wronged someone you need to repeat this process with them.

 

A benefit of this is a healing in your spirit that washes away a guilt conscience. You will not have ulcers nor problems with sleep.

Repentance is as good for you as it is to the offended. Joseph- Anthony: Green

You do not need a physiatrist to tell you this. You need Jesus. You do not need to give your guilt to a physiatrist (and how many of them give you pills instead of dealing with the real issues?).

OBEDIANCE

 

You need to make it right with Jehovah.  Do not give excuses (the satanic ritual practiced by the world of not my fault it is societies fault or my parents fault or any one else’s fault. You are the one that committed the sin, you are responsible for it.) so just fess up and apologize for your sin. Make amends where it is appropriate. The offended soul may not forgive you but your conscience is clear before Jehovah.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-M’Kaddesh (The Lord is my Sanctifier) for blessing me with forgiveness for my sins when I am weak and surrender to them and then sincerely repent of them. I exalt You in the name of he whose precious blood made this possible Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sweet sunshine of Jesus’ beautiful love bless you today and every day.

Here is the proof.

HOLY SPIRITS POWER

But you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you. Now if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he is not His. Romans 8:9 New King James Version

For those of you who doubt if the Holy Spirit dwells within the Christian here is the proof. The Spirit of God dwells in you.  That is not a maybe but a direct promise and Jehovah always fulfills His promises.

 

Therefore all Christians have the Holy Spirit with in us.

What does the Spirit do in our lives?

He conquers our addictions which we are too weak to defend ourselves from.

For me it was stubbornness.

Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. Romans 8:26 New King James Version

Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh. Galatians 5:16 New King James Version

The Holy Spirit with in us guides us to what is the right way to live. There have been too many times when I was in doubt about certain circumstances but the Holy Spirit lead me to make the correct ones which prevented a lot of grief.

The reward for this is peace in our lives and joy in our loving relationship with the Trinity.  There are so many times in my prayers that I am so filled with spiritual joy it feels as if every molecule in my body wants to scream out:” I love You my Holy Father, I love You.”

The kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. Romans 14:17 New King James Version

There have been so many times in my trials and tribulations I wanted to quit but was empowered by the Holy Spirit to continue on the victory.

That you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 15:13 New King James Version

 

The Holy Spirit teaches us about Jehovah which leaves us in awe, respect and a deeper love for Him.

 

These things we also speak, not in words which man’s wisdom teaches but which the Holy Spirit teaches, comparing spiritual things with spiritual. 1 Corinthians 2:13 New King James Version                                                                      

The reward for this is a stronger loving bond with Him.

But he who is joined to the Lord is one spirit with Him. 1 Corinthians 6:17 New King James Version

                                                                                                            

And finally, He is the best remodeler there can ever be. Looking back I am amazed at how much He was destroyed the old pot of clay and remolded me into a completely opposite creature. Every one of those fruits are in an abundance in my live.

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness. Galatians 5:22 New King James Version

Now do not expect all of these to occur when you accept in your heart Jesus Christ as your Savior. Some may take years, some may take decades (for me some took twenty years). We go on Jehovahs time not ours. Speaking from experience although a lot of it has been very difficult I humbly thank my Beloved every day for the amazing work over He has accomplished in this lumpy clay. And the thing is, the process continues all of our lives.

The Christian walk is one of constant learning and remolding of our spirits. It does not happen over night, it happens over a lifetime. Joseph- Anthony: Green

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Jireh  (God is our Provider) for blessing me with the most amazing life giving gift of the Holy Spirit who has patiently destroyed the old pottery and skillfully remolded me into the child You desire me to be. I humbly thank You in the name of He whose most precious gift made it all possible Jesus Christ. Amen.

 

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

So Small but So Big

 

WORSHIP

Have you ever laid on a carpet of grass on a warm summers eve and gazed into the night sky

Try as man may with his fireworks , it can not match GODS nightly lightshow

As you lay there admiring the magnatude of the beautiy of it all have you ever felt small and igsignificant

I have

Then a thought gently caresses my mind

It was GOD who made all those stars

HE is so awsome

and you know what?

HE loves us

A feeling of happiness and peace envelopes me

I smile and softly say

Thank you my wonderful Father

He Took Me Where I Did Not Want To Go.

WE MUST LET GO

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9    New King James Version

 

When I completed my TESOL course the intention was to teach in Central America. The Lord however was directing me to China. I thought He was crazy and there was no way that destination was even on the radar.

As I love Jesus I obediently ventured to China even though there was dread in my heart because it was a communist country and I am a Christian.

It has been a difficult ten years travelling and teaching all along the coast from the north to the south. Through His wise guidance He has lead me to people who were open to listening about Him and accepting Him.

Sometimes the Lord will lead you where you do not want to go because you are afraid. Trust Him, obey Him and follow Him. He will be with you every step of the way.

Reflecting back on the experience the understanding came to me that His way was, is and always will be the best way.

A bonus is how much that in my difficult times and learning to trust in Him we have grown oh so very close.

 

What a marvelous blessing that is as well as the fact that I have helped guide others into Christ’s wonderful family.

Prayer: Thank you Holy Spirit Rohi (Holy Spirit our Sheppard) for being such a patient, wise and strong guide in my life to take me to the places You have prepared for me to do the work You have prepared for me. I praise You in the name of the greatest Sheppard Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.
