Scripture says " seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be added unto you ". So in Luke Chapter 17 verses 20 through 22, Jesus is demanded of the Pharisee's when the kingdom of God will come. And Jesus answers " The kingdom of God does not come with observation, neither will they say lo here or lo there, for the kingdom of God is within you ". Then we read again in John Chapter 3 verse 3, Jesus tells Nicodemus " Verily, verily I say unto thee, except a man be born again he cannot see the kingdom of God ". Of course Nicodemus being ignorant of these things, asks Jesus how can a man born when he's old, by entering a second time into his mother's womb? But Jesus reiterates his first statement and further elaborates, Verily, verily I say unto thee except a man be born of the water and of the Spirit he cannot enter into the kingdom of God ".
  Now  after all that is said, Jesus's own disciples ask him to teach them to pray.....so He teaches them to pray to their Father in heaven for the " KINGDOM TO COME " so that God's will can be done in earth as it is in heaven..... this is called by many " the symbolic prayer ". The example prayer. Making it sound like its just something Jesus came up with to teach His disciples how to pray. But when you analyze it closely, it in essence, is asking God to bring you into His  Kingdom. That same Kingdom that Jesus is saying that you must seek first, and then have all these other things added unto you. That same kingdom that Jesus tells Nicodemus, that a man must be born again to have. That same Kingdom that The Apostle Paul wrote about in Romans Chapter 14 verses 17 and 18 saying For the Kingdom of God is not meat and drink, but peace, joy and righteousness in the Holy Ghost. For he that is in these things serveth  Christ and is acceptable to God, and approved of men. So its evident that God's will in heaven is in fact of His Spirit. And when you mortify the deeds of the flesh through repentance and put away all the evil that you are holding on to. You will be baptized into the Spirit of Christ when He sees you are faithful and willing to continue to be faithful. After you are Baptized into the Holy Ghost of Christ....you are in the resurrection mode of the Spirit. And you are now risen with Him, And, If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God.  Set your affections on things above, not on things on earth. For ye are dead and your life is hid with Christ in God....amen?
       In the Spirit of God and of Christ, you have many traits that you must adhere to. Not traits of the flesh but of The Spirit of which you have received from Christ to glorify the Father. That's why Jesus said, God is a Spirit and those that worship Him must worship Him in Spirit and in truth....because these are the ones that God seeks to worship Him.  In searching for God in Christ, the kingdom is yours just for the asking....through the prayer that Jesus taught His own disciples to pray. I assume since scripture says in acts that all the disciples were praying in one accord, on the day of Pentecost. They were in essence praying that prayer that Jesus taught them saying OUR FATHER WHICH ART IN HEAVEN HALLOWED BE THY NAME THY KINGDOM COME, THY WILL BE DONE IN EARTH AS IT IS IN HEAVEN.....! And this prayer is what gave them the presence of seraphims and a mighty rushing sound of their wings as they entered the room. And cloven tongues like unto fire came upon them. Much like when Isaiah seen the LORD high and lifted up and His train filled the  temple. The seraphim flew down and with the tongs took a hot coal off the altar hearth and flew to Isaiah and touched his lips and purged him of his sins. The disciples received a form of that cleansing. But they had already been water baptized and just needed that final anointing to create The kingdom of God within them. They received power to speak in new languages to the people who came in and heard them speaking.
      These disciples received power to tread on serpents and scorpions and over all the power of the enemy that nothing by any means could hurt them. To cast out demons and make the lame to walk and the blind to see and to raise the dead. And all these things will be added unto you also scripture says. Jesus says, these things I do you shall do also and greater than these because i go to the Father.
      Jehovah God is not a myth nor a hoax created by men. he is a real father in Heaven and He has delegated all power to His Only begotten Son Jesus Christ.  Amen Thank You Jesus!!!!

You know I see all sorts of claims being made on G+ and all sorts of little skits and sayings and all sorts of things pertaining to peoples beliefs in Christ. But what I rarely ever see....is how you felt when Christ came into your life. What did you actually receive from on High to make you understand that God is a Spirit and That He is alive. 
           Testimony is a very essential part of being a real Christian. What came upon you the very moment you experienced your day of Pentecost. I never read on here...the exciting circumstances that God revealed to you when He baptized you into His Holy Spirit. Even the disciples testified what had happened to them when they received.

End time judgement is a factor left only to God. Man has no say so in it. Today to much emphasis is being determined about what we are to expect from prophecy and its horrible ending. Many people are drawn by fascination to what they believe will be an eventual final destruction of the earth and its people. That fascination has left many people horribly disoriented and fearfully imbalanced.  God created an impact statement when He said at Isaiah Chapter 29, verse 11...." Wherefore the Lord said, Forasmuch as this people draw near Me with their mouth, and with their lips do honor Me, but have removed their heart far from Me, and their fear toward Me is taught by the precept of men:..". These words contain an impact statement meant for all who read them to take heed. Because what men teach by their own precepts ( books, magazines, T.V. programs and all sorts of media outlets) can lead you astray. You cannot conjure your own ideas of what an end time prophecy holds to. You cannot teach the fear of God by your own fore drawn conclusions of what God has not said. In fact, it is with great misunderstanding that men even teach such things as anything pertaining to an end time prophecy. When the Bible fails to clarify the impact of such a thing  in any particular detail. But when you venture to see and hear what these modern prophets say. They describe something that has no real meaning or truth to it. Beware of their precepts...because by those things are you being misled and they are attempting create an uncertain fear in you that you should not have. The end time results should never be fear...when in fact you have with you always the Prince of Peace. That Peace alone is an indication that you are not to be troubled about nothing that even would take your physical life. Because beyond that you are saved and adorned with God's Holy Spirit. With further indication, scripture points us to believing that God created in Christ a way of escape. That escape is given to us by Christ...as He also points out to the 70 disciples He made in Luke Chapter 10. Those disciples had just returned from being out doing Christ's Kingdom work. And He had given them power to do that work. They returned rejoicing over the fact that even the devils were subjected to them in Christ's name. But Jesus wanted to be more instructive and said what is recorded at Luke Chapter 10 verse 19..." Behold, I give you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing by any means can hurt you ". This again is an impact statement left by Christ to all of His disciples. And that statement was meant to illustrate the impact that it should make upon your own heart when it comes to end time judgment. Because He said...." nothing by any means can hurt you ". If you feel this way within your heart. Then you know and understand that you are indeed Christ's. And nothing that this modern world can throw at you can by any means hurt you. To teach any other doctrine or emphasis of end time prophecy is a lie. Because while you so live, you are in essence not of this world. But instead of the one to come. You are a sojourner and a pilgrim in this life's colony. And nothing this side of heaven can hurt you. God assures us of that through Christ. He has taught us that as well. And with that He also says that your names are written in heaven. We are not of this earth or of this heavens. But are destined for a " new earth " and a " new heavens ". Our Spirits are in line with whats to come from above not what's being construed to be evil below. When you receive of The Holy Ghost, you are no longer of this life. But the life that Christ gives you. Your inner sanctums are destined to be Holy before the Father and Christ Jesus. These are the beginnings of the new earth and new heaven Spirit person you are now in. Many cannot construe that. We are given a new earth and new heaven Spirit body....that has nothing to do with this body that we now have. Although we are in this body, its gifted with Christ's Holy Spirit and made alive by His power to become children of God incarnate. And as we live now in our earthly body we are preparing our get away into a new Spiritual body beyond us now. While we struggle and strive to keep ourselves pure from fallacies. We are not looked upon as strangers to God in Christ...because we are adopted into that new body of Spirit origin by Christ. And will live con-figuratively  with His Spiritual body in a new heavens and new earth form. The residual power that you have now  will not compare with the full power that you will have once you configured into His full power body in Spirit and in Truth beyond these days of life and times. The end time prophecy is judgement....but the joy times prophecy is peace joy and righteousness in Christ forever, amen?
           I heard someone say that they are being made to fear a human judgement that is being prepared by our government. And they believe what the preachers are saying about how our government is going to take over the people's lives and arrange for concentration camps and forced housing and living standards. These so called prophecies are not legitimate Biblical idea's. They are contrived by spiritual emotions and determinations of men. Cloaked in devious idea's of willful desire. The Almighty has warned us not to listen to these things....because they are based on the precepts of men. And according to the Lord men love nothing more than to make you fear and tremble by their own words of prophetic nature. But not given by God in Christ. We are in fact living in times of disaster and tribulation. But nothing will make you fear what you see and hear from any source other than God. He alone should be your greatest fear. Because He alone has the power to cast you into hell and keep you there. Men have no such power. All men can do is kill the body....but not the soul......! The Holy Ghost becomes the soul of Humanity that have Christ within it.....and nothing by any means can hurt you, when Christ is within you amen! So why babble about end times prophecy.....or even God's judgement. He's declared it and its final   to all that believe. But to those who are still pondering its out come they have a doubt some where and need to find an answer of confirmed confidence. Before they rest assured its actually going to happen.
              Heavenly Father we Praise You for Your concerted effort with Christ to make us all believe and worship in the same mind, heart and wisdom. May we all confirm the Highest Banner of Your Assurance that Christ lives within our hearts and gives us the wisdom that assures us of You and Him alone.....and no matter what men may say or do unto us give  us that Super natural power and strength to over come all things in Christ by His continued peace and assurance forever amen. In Jesus name I ask this.

                         And The Plot Thickens

         With the Supreme Court decision to unleash homosexual same sex marriages upon us. The issues concerning Confederate historical flags and statutes...and over whelming racism. The United States is beginning feel the Satanic grip of evil. 
          Defining what is about to happen in this nation, is not so unclear that everyone cannot see it coming. But ignoring it in the same way the people of Lot's day ignored the Lord's plea in Sodom and Gomorrah.
          When you are born again you are given the most vivid picture of Christianity. But with that picture comes the source of Spiritual revelation, in which, God instills within your soul the ability to understand the last days of earthly origin. He does not keep you blind to the fulfillment of whats taking place around you on a daily basis. You are being slowly warned to keep your eyes, ears and heart open to the earthly ways of humanity. And his terrifying methods of destroying every thing that God has given us for the peace and assurance of your lives. To not regard the idea that God has set down among us. Is to say you are part of this world and will be swept away with it, when that time becomes a factor. We are taught even by scripture..." come out from among those sinners and unbelievers...and make ourselves a peculiar people.....a people that God adheres to....a people who are called by His Name......a people who know their God and who do not water down or compromise His Holy Word. A people who do not take sides with this world for any reason....because the Bible also says...that even the very elect will be deceived in those days if it were at all possible. And what you are seeing parading down the streets in rainbow fashion. Is that deceiver the Christ taught us about. That cunning idea that we are to
 " love " these people. But God is not in that frame of mind. Had He taken on that adage during His visit to Sodom and Gomorrah....those cities and those people would have not been destroyed. You as a Christian have the same position and right to do what the angels of the Lord and Lot also did. Warn those who oppose the truth and the righteousness of God in Christ. Then once you've warned them, flee, from their presence. Because the wrath of God abides upon them children of disobedience. And whatever He chooses to do to them, He will also do unto you for being a sympathizer. Look at Lot's wife, she looked back, after being commanded not to. Her destruction became even as those who died from fire that fell from heaven.
          When you encounter these people who are not willing to bent and worship the Lord. Your only obligation to them is to preach the truth. If you preach the Kingdom of God and Salvation through Christ and they fail to listen or jeer you. You have only one choice there after that, dust your feet and travel on. Jesus was a very dedicated and stern individual and He did not cut corners when it came to God the Father's words. Insomuch, He told a young man....let the dead bury their dead, come follow me. Was there a sort of commandment being laid on that young man. Insomuch that Jesus was saying that if you are not following him you are dead? The point is: when you lay to much emphasis on something that does not give God reverence you are committing sacrilege to God and Christ.
             At every turn in the road when I encounter a Christian patronizing a homosexual....and I scoff at it. I am rebuked by that person because they are not rigid scripture keeping people. They want to exploit " love " in place of commandment. Samuel asked Saul, " what is better, sacrifice....or obey "?. Saul was under commandment of the LORD God to do His will. And that will was not meant to take " captives " of the Amalekites when Saul was sent to destroy them. But Saul instead listened to the people...rather than God. And failed to keep His commandments as instructed through Samuel. Saul kept part of the commandments...but left another part undone and did not listen intently to the full of it all. And instead allowed the people to do as they will...and they did not do God's will and caused Saul to sin. And as  a result Saul was stripped of The Kingdom. These are the very things that Christians do also today. They know the commandments of The Lord, and yet they soft play the rigidness of The Word and The Will of God, and fail to become peculiar people. And instead side with the people at large over issues that is blatantly a sin in the eyes and in the ears of The Lord. And instead, the people say Oh we still love you and this is something that has lost its impact against true sin and its wickedness against God. Peter did not lie when he wrote the scripture that said, " Satan is like a roaring lion " WALKING ABOUT " seeking whom he may devour ". Look at these rainbow parades, and see who it is that is WALKING ABOUT seeking souls to devour.
            Every issue that now plagues The United States is drawing us closer and closer to our end. We are being predetermined by revelation and prophecy to meet our demise as a whole nation. Mystery Babylon is in a course of destruction...but that is just a spiritual destruction. The physical part has not yet awaken all these sleepers. Even those who say we see....but do not have ears to hear what THE SPIRIT SAITH and keep the deepest sense of God's Holy Commandments.
             Humanity has departed spiritually from The Lord and they are not willing to adhere to Christ. And by doing so they have begun a form of abomination of desolation determined by God against this nation. However...their ways, there land mark decisions, their culture and everything that sways them away from God. Is merely Satan within them as a roaring lion. But that portion is the " abomination ". The portion that we will all suffer will be the final desolation, caused by war and determination of God in Christ. Our leaders are as guilty as our citizens when it comes to placing us all in jeopardy before The Lord. The LORD transcribed in Isaiah the Prophet saying, " there is no peace to the wicked for they are like a troubled sea when it cannot rest and it casts up its dirt and mire...". He has allowed it and it will continue and it will surely overcome all that deal treacherously in the land. Right now the spiritual deformity is at work.....but keep your eyes open and your ears attentive.....there is also a physical mass destruction in the making.  Here listen:
                 " A sound of battle is in the land, and of great destruction. How is the Hammer of the whole earth cut asunder and broken! how is Babylon become a desolation among the nations? I have laid a snare for thee and thou wast not aware: thou art found, and also caught, because thou has striven against the LORD. "
                He's come down from the mountain of The LORD. To hear the discussions of evil and wickedness and discernment of the perpetrator's of such things. And there is  a day approaching that will make all that discernment disappear.
                We who live by The Spirit of Christ have been given ample understanding from all that we see appearing before us in this horrendous land of curses. We know that God exists and we know that He is long suffering and patient. But we also know that as we all are, He is too. Unable to abide in such a senseless place of wickedness. Such a place of immoral attitudes and spirits. The wickedness is gaining speed, and its continuing to progress and become so fallible that human nature has lost its own control. It cannot survive much longer.  The imagination of every heart is evil continually before The LORD even as it was in the days before The Flood in Genesis. The final analysis for all who call upon The Name of The LORD, is to watch, keep abreast of what you see and understand how God is preparing His armies to attack. You will see the end and be horrified by its results. But glorified by its out come in your own life..amen? Praise the LORD and continually Praise Him for His Precious Blood that was shed for your continued salvation and the resurrection and life He has vested into your soul amen? Thank You Christ Jesus and make us of a quickening Spirit when these things unfold upon us. Let us sing, worship and Praise You continually until that fateful day, in Your Holy Name do we ask these things amen!!!!!

                   What Is The Birthright of Christ?

            You know there came a day, when God looked down from heaven and said. " This one is mine ". And you began to be turned gradually. And slowly you were called to repentance. Then shortly thereafter you were given a " Birthright " into Christ. That birthright changes everything you ever knew about the world and how you were created in it. Much like Adam, your body had to be created first. So the task of that was given to two earthly people. They co-joined you in a fleshly sense. Much like God did when He took the earth and formed Adam. But Adam had no life or light, until God breathed those into his nostrils and and made him a living soul. Without the Spirit of God, death is all we are. No Life and no Light. These two things make up the birthright of Christ today, to all that believe. But understand, that with that birthright comes a very unique portion of God the Father, that was also found in Christ Jesus. It's The Holy Ghost portion, in that portion alone, you receive the most phenomenal aspects of being born again into that right to succeed. 
              When you explore Luke, and find Chapter 10, you will find Jesus making seventy more disciples, besides the twelve that He had already made. In these newly formed disciples, Jesus discloses how they were made to operate under a portion of His anointing. He gave them power to tread on serpents and scorpions and over all the power of the enemy, so that " nothing by any means " could hurt them. This is the phenomenal portion of that birthright that all Christians can enjoy once they receive The Spirit of Christ. But again, this cannot be possible without one other principle gift that Christ gives. Your name is written in heaven. Your birth certificate has been designed and signed by God in Christ in heaven.
            Now when Jesus had made these extra seventy disciples, and had given them power to preach the kingdom of God. They did not realize that they possessed such powers until they were confronted by demons. And then when demons began to come out of those that they spoke to. Those new converts were beside themselves in great joy. Not realizing that each of these attributes of God's Holy Spirit existed within them. Until they returned to Jesus with such joy and elation. But Jesus rebuked the idea to some extent, by informing them, not to be so joyful over the fact that demons were subjected to them by His name. But be more joyful over the fact that your birthright has been established in heaven upon a written certificate. God your Father has written it in and signed it to your own glory as well, amen?
              The official Spiritual birthright, becomes the seed of the anointing that Christ plants within your soul. His demeanor and His glory is transferred to you....so that " nothing by any means can hurt you".  He Himself, says. " I give you power......to tread on serpents and scorpions and over all the power of the enemy that nothing by any means can hurt you ". This my friend, is the touch of God's Holy Hand within you at all times thereafter. And you have the " right " to use that power against any form of sickness, disease or whatever may come up against you. Its you and God's Holy Spirit within you that refuses to allow anything deadly or evil to touch you. Its not a symbolic structure but a faithful power of Christ, that keeps you away from Satan. He cannot structure your soul any longer without being cast out by God's Holy Spirit. You have the power...its greater than he that is in the world. The joy of living out that structure cannot be compared to anything else on this earth. You have it, its yours, its a wonderful gift of God in Christ. It cannot be removed forever. Its sealed to you in the form of Christ and is yours forever, amen? But you have to use it for its every purpose by which it was given to you. You cannot be sick and evilly diverse within it. Because its a " Him " in the fullest meaning of God Almighty. And in Him all things are possible...that being said, what else would you ever expect from God the Father. Surely not to a puny, wimpy, disabled God. But a God that can secure your every need and beyond. One Who can lift you up over every crisis. And stand strong in your blood and fulfill His every nature without fail, amen?
            Now to have a Parent like that, is to proclaim a birthright of great magnitude and resource amen? Healing is always found within His Wings. He stands close and He stands aloft to assure your every idea of Him is met. He will always be there, because He is within you and you are within Him.....and with that, I leave you with this, remember....you have a birthright that no one can steal....and you are guaranteed by Christ....." THAT NOTHING "........" BY ANY MEANS CAN HURT YOU " that promise is sealed in heaven forever....Thank You Jesus, for such a wonderful gift...amen?
              Heavenly Father thank You for recreating us into the Image of Your Son Jesus. And giving us a portion of Christ's birthright in Spirit and in Truth. Thank You for a healing in Your Wings that is perpetually glorious and always present to our well being. I give Praise and Honor and Glory to You and Your Most Holy Son for all that You have done in ascending to us who love You and are called according to Your purpose in Christ, amen. Thank You Jesus for dying for me and shedding Your precious blood for my redemption and birthright, amen. Bless Your Holy Name, now and even forever, amen and amen?

             I must share this,,,,,,,a few days ago I posted a few comments about my health and requested prayers as well from every on here. I want to thank all that indeed prayed along with me and also share the results. My appendix problem has been taken care of Amen? The Lord is my Shepherd and I shall not want....this I do know that when adversity attacks me. I use the One resource that He has given me to rely upon. Jesus Christ as my resource. Because by reminding Satan that He who is in me is greater than he who is in the world. That eliminates all evil for sure. Nothing by any means can hurt me. Because physical restraints are not available to us. We are set at liberty by Christ. And no matter what we might encounter if you have been truly born again, " not by might, nor by power, but by God's Spirit ". Then there is absolutely nothing that can hurt you by any means. I do feel sorry for those who attend churches and still use doctors. I cannot see that. I know many people proclaim that God made doctor's. If at all, if He did, its for the faithless. Faithless people even those who attend church and read their Bibles. Have to many cares still in their lives and when sickness strikes hard its a very crucial time to deny even yourself and get contrite and broken before the Lord. Because God in Christ seeks people who are contrite and broken. Healing is only done through denial. Denying oneself is the only way to receive your " permanent " healing. So many people will not listen when they are being told...." give up your life and be saved ". They will retort, I have given up my life, I go to church, I believe in God and in Christ, I read my Bible daily. These do not amount to " giving up your life ". There is a far deeper and greater spiritual commitment that has to be made. Denying your family, stop listening to them, denying your belly the lust and the want for food, putting away all worldliness, stop listening to the doctor's and quit medication crutches. These are all denying you salvation. These are not part of God's plan for your everlasting life. 
       I have recently encountered a relative who " believes " in Jehovah, and in Christ, who attends church religiously, who confesses Christ and God to many people. But she has not went to the " river of living waters " Spiritually. And after suffering four long years of ill health. She finally gave in and had a hysterectomy. I felt so sad for her that while studying the Bible and being called a Christian does not amount to anything that would have prevented her from Satan. She lost the battle and gave in. She has no real inkling that what Jehovah has created for her is called the " temple of the living God ". Your physical body belongs to God, its not something given to doctors to tinker with. Every part was established for a reason. Nothing ever has to be removed no matter how long you live or how old it gets. God has a way of renewing every single part and making sure it functions even up until the day He calls you out of that body. Why sacrifice what you have to unforeseen circumstances and even more so, more problems that you may encounter later. I see myself in a place where Christ told me and assured me that " nothing by any means can hurt me ". That is and was a written promise from God, and as long as I rely on that Word of Christ in God, then I am supporting the very nature of Christ within His Spirit. Because every disciple that Christ makes, He gives them Spiritual power to live by, so that nothing by any means can hurt you. That promise falls under what Jesus told Satan in the wilderness, " get thee hence Satan for it is written man does not live by bread along but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God ". When your discipleship becomes alive and your born both of the water and of the Spirit....every word is established by God in Christ to you. That nothing by any means can hurt you. This is awesome. Many Christians will not take that faithful step and say, " even if He slay's me I will trust Him ". That's when God totally see's that you mean business in His stead. Job used that very word and laid his life to that fact. Its when you are at that gravest point and you understand that you might be under attack by Satan that you must become a true child of God. And use what Christ has chosen you by as  means to ward off all adversity in the flesh. Illness I laugh at....because discipleship is something that Christ has been giving men for centuries. True discipleship is something that nurtures you into believing beyond a reasonable doubt. That you are saved and your name is written in Heaven as Jesus also said to the seventy other disciples He made at Luke Chapter 10. Not only is your name written in heaven, every spiritual fallacy is capable of being rebuked by you. And nothing by any means that they attempt against you can hurt you PROMISE UNTO ETERNITY. Established forever in heaven along with your name..amen? My point is...do not be afraid of sickness, stand up against everything that comes against you. Do not fall prey to operations or what doctors tell you...but let me also say...if you are under the power of God's Holy Spirit of Christ that is. If you have not been baptized with fire and glory from on high....your faith is weak and your Bible study, your church attendance and every other attribute of this side of heaven. Will not give you power over Satan. You must receive " first " the kingdom of God and His Righteousness. Then all these wonderful gifts and power will befall you. Because God's Kingdom is not a physical kingdom. It is Spiritual even as He also is Spirit and Is Truth. And you cannot enter into these without first being born of the water and then again of the Spirit of Christ...from on high.
           BUT, let me reiterate what I said from the beginning of this: In order to gain God's approval you must become " contrite and broken ". You must deny every thing and everybody around you and in your life. Even the very food and drink that you take in. Are you seeking a healing from Jehovah? Get into all these night and day, surrender...bless Him with your whole heart and your whole spirit, confess before Him your desires and He sees your needs even before you ask. But ask anyway. These are great promises that I know work for Christ. These are the opportunities that so many people miss out on at even church. Because becoming a Bible scholar is a Pharisee that works in the flesh.  But becoming a child of God, you work in His Spirit and His frame work for your greatest assets are in Him forever. Sickness and disease has no holds upon you.You are Free Indeed. Nothing by any means can hurt you when you are a born again disciple and child of God.
            Every word that I have established in this comment, has worked so wondrously in my life. My greatest asset is not my material assets. But my Spiritual abilities and comprehensions and knowing that every word is established in God the Father before Christ amen.
            Again let me thank all that joined with me in prayer and I Praise God for you all no matter where you are or who you might be. I thank you. And May God richly bless you and all your endeavors forever amen!
            Gracious Heavenly Father I truly appreciate all those You gave to me in prayer. And I hope that You bless each and everyone in Jesus Precious Name, amen.......Praise His Holy Name, in Christ....forever.

              FRUIT FOR THOUGHT:

          So here you are...confronting an unbeliever and sharing scripture and Jesus with him. But you can see that he's not really impressed with what you are saying. Then all of a sudden he stops you and says, with sarcasm, " I guess you've walked on water too, huh "?
             You politely lay The Bible aside and smile, and say, " Why yes I have matter of fact, many times ". He gets a half sort of astonished look on his face and says, " Yes, right, so you think you are Jesus ". And you respond..." No, but I can walk on water, every time it rains on the side walk ".

        Why do you teach your own brand of the gospel? I heard someone saying one day that their son was in a church service. And he was listening to a preacher, preach. But he did not like what he was hearing because it did not line up with what his daddy had told him.
         This situation became a critical issue. Because it fell on denominational type rhetoric rather than truth. The young man's dad belonged to a different sect of Christianity than what the preacher was preaching. But the critical part of these things. Is whether the young man walked out of that church....believing that his dad's religion was more perfect, or better suited to his own beliefs.
           So why are there so many denominations among us. Teaching and preaching so many different " gospels " according to daddy, brother, sister, mother, cousin or whoever. Is God liberal....or is He literal? Paul told the people at the church in Corinth " to all speak the same thing....and let there be no divisions between you " (1 Corinthians Chapter 1 verse 10 ). He further stated in that verse " but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment ".
So my question is: if you all joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment. How can you all preach a different gospel...and come away believing what you are preaching and teaching is " the only true gospel "? How many Holy Ghost's are there? How many Christ's do we serve? And how many God The Father's are there?  Paul again emphasized at Philippians Chapter 2 verse 5, " Let this mind be in you that was also in Christ Jesus ". So how can there be millions of different minds set to doing millions of different gospels or their frame of the so called gospel. And still be " right " and of the " truth ". One Spirit of Truth....that Jesus says " will teach you all things and bring to remembrance every thing I have said unto you ". Okay, now, if The Holy Ghost was meant to be our sole teacher sent from God in Christ's stead. Why are we not using His Mind as our own mind and all teaching and preaching the same thing. Not what we construe scripture to mean or to be. But what we are being perfectly taught by God's Holy Spirit of Christ....in the form of The Holy Spirit of Truth. Its not daddy's gospel, or aunt so and so's gospel. It's Jesus's gospel. Brain washing people to think that you are a real high profile preacher and you and God got it all together. But what you are preaching does not even come close to what all other preachers are preaching. And they too are all having a field day telling their congregations all sorts of stuff that does not line up wholly with the Word Of God and scripture. Only makes what Paul taught a lie. He was misconceived himself by the Holy Ghost to tell people to all speak the same thing and all have the same mind and same judgment. He was preaching in the flesh when he said, " let this mind be in you that was also in Christ Jesus ". Because listening to all the different idea's of what men portray the gospel to be by their own understanding. Is confusing....and is a daddy's version of what he thinks Christ is and what God is. But the carnal mind cannot conceive that. In fact it enmity against God.
               I have had some form of Christianity myself for over thirty years. But in that thirty years I have also listen to many different preachers and guest speakers at churches and gatherings. But hardly do they ever speak exactly the same thing. The only Daddy Son relationship that ever existed was God the Father and Christ The Son...these are all we need to listen to. And the sad thing about religious groups is their desire to want to save you. They make you falsely believe that putting away the things of the flesh is the way to repentance and salvation. And although it is a very crucial part of receiving of The Holy Ghost. Its not the real way....God the Father says at Isaiah Chapter 66 verse 2  in part, says, " ....but to this man will I look, even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit, and trembleth at My word ". Nothing moves God's heart any greater than a man who is contrite and broken and trembling before God over what he has read and understands to be his own wicked sins against God. This scripture pin points one thing that God singles out " this man " to look upon. You cannot share your filth with God and expect to receive salvation. And although many of your living standards are filthy. They cannot merely be cast out and you receive of God's salvation. You must tremble, weep, and be broken and be in fear of what you know from His word is judgment upon you. This is the man God see's.
          Why do men teach any other form of lip service salvation is beyond me. And men are not directed to do " anything " other than instruct those who are out of the way. To repent, and believe God's Word. That has the only power there is to receive of His gospel and to continue to keep it right before Him and in line with all others who also tremble at His word.
           Religion and Spirit have fatal variances. Because one creates a continued death in you....while the other grants you eternal life with Christ. To be religious is to be fatal. Daddy's gospel will usually make you religious....but it will not save you. Ole dad can make you believe that you have the right idea's and you are attending his church and that's where you need to be. But church and dad are not salvation. They are instruments of continued brain washing and force. But You become a part of their social club and behave pious-ed before them in church. But the flesh dictates other rules while your outside of the presence of those elite members of your church social club.
            The young man who chose to accept his own dad's church and his brand of gospel. Cannot even begin to understand the fullness of Christ until he shed's that intermediate spirit of doom. Men teaching men is a very dire situation. God has sent us all our own Rabbi and He is The Father incarnate. His mind and His judgment is all that you need to remain faithful to God and walk in His statutes and keep His commandments Spiritually..amen?
           Its the Spirit that gives you life.....the flesh profits nothing......and keeping of Christ's words after you have been baptized into The Holy Ghost from on high. Is the fruits that gender salvation unto all that call upon The Lord in Spirit and in Truth amen. May God bless all that reads and understands what God has set in order through Christ and His Holy Apostles....amen?

                     How Do I Judge Another?

          According to scripture we are not supposed to judge others. But if we judge righteous judgement we can. So what is righteous judgment? Jesus said its not looking on the outward appearance. Because what a person might do...may seem holy and just....but its a falsehood. Because the heart is meditating and indicting one thing, while the outward appearance is showing something else.
           My purpose for even attempting to display what I am about to say. Has to do with people who think they are more righteous than others. Yet never consider themselves what they display..when they speak. The words that proceed out of your mouth disclose who you are, and what you have and who you belong to.
             You may think you are a real glorified Christian with every jot and tittle covered. But when another person who has studied the Word of God intricately and has the Power of The Holy Ghost within them. Hears you speak....they immediately wonder....why you are not following the word of God intricately. And instead, your are reasoning with what you should do. Show me where Christ used fleshly common sense? His power was delegated from on High. His spirit man, was not made to interfere, with His Unlimited Spirit of God the Father found within Him. Jesus had no options or no choices. He was totally bent on obligation to His Father in heaven and committed to His will, not Jesus's own will. When people stop committing themselves to the Holy Ghost of which they have received. And begin to start using their own fleshly minds. To determine the out come of their lives. They are not doing the will of God in Christ. But their own will.
            The idea for this writing does not come from what I think it should say. But what God's Holy Spirit has showed me what to say. Because this very date while speaking with a sister. Her reasoning in certain  area's of her walk with God in Christ. Has left her some what ship wrecked. Because while she dearly loves the Lord. Her own interference with His works within her. Complicates God's Spirit's work for all salvation. So when you recite the idea that " God can do everything " and " nothing is impossible with God ". And you yourself begin to say things that have no actual concurrence with what The Holy Spirit has transcribed through His once living witnesses. As written in scripture. You yourself are slipping. Your mouth tells us all what your heart is meditating...and if judgment is at hand...you can be judged according to what you say, rather than what you represent at church or in a Bible study. The outward spirit is pious-ed and poised...and you may appear to be in the beauty of holiness. That is, until you open your mouth and what comes out is not Holy Spirit fueled or led. Then your appearance becomes flawed and uncertain. And all who hear you who are rooted and grounded in God's word...have a different idea about who you are.
          If Jesus counseled His disciples to be sure and visit those who are saved in prison. Should you make it a point to do that? Or do you find fault in criminals? He said " when I was in prison you never came and ministered unto Me ". They said, when were You in prison Lord, we never seen you in prison. He said, When you seen one of these who believe me in prison, then you seen Me. To have a son or a daughter in prison...who are attending church and studying the Word of God faithfully. And who have been baptized and born again. And you yourself being a free Christian outside of prison. Should you visit the place and joyfully entreat your relation and Praise The Lord for their redemption and their renewed salvation? Or do you reason with yourself about the indignation and the loss of your precious integrity. If someone finds out that you are seeing one of your relatives in a prison.               Christ had everything covered and He spoke it all into existence and made us all aware of our earthly actions and what they should be and who we should follow and be led by. If you honestly have The Holy Spirit dwelling within you...should you speak anything but what He brings to remembrance? Or what He assures you of. Its not of you any longer but of Him...and what you speak has to become Him incarnate. If His thoughts and intents are not completely over taken in your heart you are slipping away from God. If not noticeably, then subtly and either way you are not fulfilling your ministry in Christ.
                To go to church and find that you feel God's Holy Spirit pouring over you while you stand there. And think just because you can feel Him there, you have the Holy Spirit yourself. Is not so....! There is an Angel of God in Christ assigned to oversee every church. And its His assignment during any and all meetings to be present. He leads the congregation and all of its pastor's, preacher's and teacher's to the realism of God 's presence in that place. Making it into a Holy sanctuary. And therefore you will feel His presence during a service or Bible study. But that is not the Holy Spirit within you. That is His presence and His assurance that you are covered by what God demands of all who come into His Presence. You must be under the presence of His Holy Spirit arua to be received into any gathering or congregational power. Where He desires to be Present Spiritually. But do not let that residual Spiritual feeling disable your fulfillment. There is actually a " baptism " of that same Spirit awaiting you in a far more glorious aspect. But that part of God is reserved for all those who repent and become baptized into it by Christ...Spiritually. Jesus will baptize with His " fire " from on high. His miracle working power will come into " your temple " body. And the force and the will of God will cleanse you from all unrighteousness. And make you clean and Holy as even His Own Spirit is within you. This assures you that you are dead. And He assures that death has no reign on you any longer. Because what you are now afterwards....is a son of God in Christ. Formed and fitted to all that Christ Himself had and still has. These are given to you to crucify your flesh and revive your spirit man, into a washed and regenerated Spirit of Christ, by His will within you. And even as Christ was in the flesh...He no longer received " common sense " sayings, or reasoned within Himself what He should do. Instead it was given of Him of The Father instantaneously...." unlimited ". His mouth opened His Words were of The Father. And He lived by every word that proceeded out of the mouth of God. These are our instructions for life also...and should never fail us in communication among us. But only in every case where we are given unlimited opportunities to speak and say the truth...by reason of God's Holy Spirit in Christ, by us, amen?
        So when i hear you speak and you are reasoning in a common sense type idea. You are lost, appearing to be something that you are not. Church does not make you a Christian.....Christ does, By incarnation of His Holy Spirit Power of God Almighty, even The Father, amen?
         Many have mixed these up...believing they have The Holy Spirit and being only duped further by feelings. Because preacher's will say, " I feel The Holy Spirit here today, don't you "? This is phenomenal but its not what it appears to be. To feel Him within the congregation is merely His presence in a sense of assurance that God is present. But anointing is not in place until it becomes Him incarnate totally complacent in your soul. You have Him in church and out of church every where you go...everything you do and all of what you speak. That is God incarnate. If you are still using your own typical worldly brain to dis-cipher  your own life's changes and moves. You are not rooted and grounded in The Holy Spirit. And you are experiencing troubles and tribulations without God in Christ.

                Same Sex Marriages A Declaration of Doom

         How do you as a Christian feel about these so called rights for homosexuals? Are you passive? Are you claiming to place love over the rigid Word of God? When " pride " becomes an issue, and deviation is a distinctive separation from God's Word. You are in essence serving another god. If your " friend " is gay...and you are a Christian, are you more concerned about your friendship with them...than what The Word says. Most Christians are taking the so called " love " approach. And soft playing the power vested in them to condemn. They do not want to offend their friend or destroy their relationship with a gay person. But it also says in The Bible at Amos 3:3, " Can two walk together except they be agreed "? 
              I am fully persuaded of The Lord that nothing is written that concur's to the activity of evil doers. They are called out about their sin and should be told definitely about it. Nothing distinctively relates to homosexuality like Sodom and Gomorrah does. If you are a believer you should never allow those historic Bible stories leave your mind. Because God is not mocked and we know that whatsoever a man sows that shall he also reap. If God yesterday destroyed the cities of the plains by fire, is He not still the same today and even forever? How can you soft play the idea that homosexuals should not be condemned even them for their activity? When Jesus sought to condemn the Pharisee's and the Sadducee's, He called them by name and condemned their unrighteous works of evil against God. So who are we? Cowardly compromiser's of what we know is the truth. But not to be joined together with the world to call evil...evil? Your sympathetic love towards a gay person is not going to call them out of their wicked ways. Because repentance has to come from their hearts. As long as you compromise their idea's you are feeding into their beliefs and giving them another log to lay on their fire. If you have been baptized into the Holy Ghost and received The Fire of God from on High. Then you have The Spirit of The Most High  that was found also in Christ. So He who is in you, is greater than he that is in the world. If you are a servant of God in Christ...you are still blind. But once you find yourself as a Friend in Jesus...you have not only Him but the Father also. But in saying that, be reminded that in order to become a Friend of Jesus, you must keep all that He commanded of you.
           So is condemning gay people evil. Well consider your own Bible teaching. Jesus was confronted by a Syro-Phoenician woman who had asked Jesus to cast a demon out of her daughter. And in the midst of his conversation with her...He called her a " dog ". Because she was a Gentile. This is our beloved Jesus with all His power and Glory of The Father....confronting a woman and called her a dog. And told her it wasn't meant for Him to give the bread of the children unto dog's. In those days being called a " dog " was equal to being insulted. But in her determination she prevailed by her " faith " not through Christs love for her. So if Christ Himself recognized this person as an heathen and He called her that. Does that mean I am supposed to be any different when it comes to condemning homosexual's who serve another god and are cast away's from The Word of God, that distinctly says that man is not supposed to lie with a man as he does with a woman? I take this as I do all scripture " very literal ".
              But even as God has said the old testament about Israel, the prophets and the priest are all profaned. Because they compromise and water down The Rigid Words of The Almighty. They seek a bribe, they lie and deceive the people, and claim good is evil and evil is good. These are the words of The Lord for America. Even so, blasphemy has been heard in heaven and wickedness has spread itself across all of America. And the time is at hand for its demise. Because the land is sold under sin and filthiness and greed have become a onslaught of evil. Go back to September 11, 2001, and count every major change that this nation has went through just in the last fourteen years. That day and that date, marked The Beginning of the End of The United States of America....the tumbling down of The United States alone. Its corruption has reached the heights of Heaven and God has heard the cry of the people...even as He has in times past, in Sodom and Gomorrah....nothing has changed and surely not Him.  He is the same yesterday, today and forever.
                The plagues of many resources are upon us and we are a back slidden nation for sure. From the head to the tail....all are gone astray seeking his own evil devices and ways. The end has already been determined from the beginning......do not compromise your deepest assets and beliefs in God as a Savior amen? No homosexuality is worthy my love.....its not worth being friends with the world to destroy my ministry in Christ amen?

                       The anticipation of whats coming, cannot ever be over shadowed by what is. The what is, factor, is you. As an individual before God in Christ. That was, you yesterday, you today and you forever. And nothing whatsoever is supposed to shake you loose from that. 
                       Stock market crashing, dollar bill losing its value, and any economical woes are fears of the rich and wealthy. Most of them fear these earthly things. But with in you lives a different idea when you see and know God within your own heart. Because we are nothing more than a vapor....a wisp in the wind, as far as time goes. Nothing is more precious to God, than His Words in Christ. And in Christ we are supposed to publish those words. And we are not supposed to focus on worldly issues....if you are married to Christ, He has the same vows that any marriage would have. " To Honor and Obey,For better or worse, for richer or poorer, in sickness and in health..."but with a better platform in the end. Those vows say " until death does you apart ". But in Christ, its said, "until death brings you two together forever " amen.
             People are beginning to fear a dollar decline and they see military training camps springing up in this nation. And they are anticipating a fall of this nations wealth and security. Leading to what many believe will be concentration camps. But when you have the Holy Spirit, should you chase a " theory " or another man's " idea's " about worldly woes. When God in Christ planted His seed in you to grow and prosper....has it reached a point of decay? Or has He declared Himself King for nothing? Are you so caught up in your family that their closeness and fleshly ties...make you cry at the fact that if such a thing happened. You couldn't die for Christ " FIRST AND FOREMOST ". God did not give any of us the Spirit of fear....but of sound mind. That sound mind includes His love, peace, joy and righteousness. These are the attributes of His Holy Spirit, for now and forever.
               Preparing for what might be coming is a sin...storing up victuals and weapons and ammunition and all sources of supplies. Because to do so, makes God's ability to supply all our needs in heaven a mockery. We are not given any guarantee's beyond what takes place today. So why fret about tomorrow when it has no value. When you absolutely know that God has not lost His Sovereignty and He is the same yesterday, today and forever. If He provided for you yesterday, will He not provide for you today also.....and even forever?
               There are men crept in among us stirring up pre-tribulation doctrines. Attempting to gather believers into a deceitful area of corruption. Attempting to disassemble God's Holy Word. And place a yoke of fear upon people about what is coming. The Spirit of God stirs up trouble and creates darkness and evil. To see who's going to be faithful and who is not. What you are actually seeing has been coming for a very long time and I have been warned of it by God throughout my walk with Him in Christ. I am not new to the picture of what is about to take place....but one thing I am sure of God says through His Holy Spirit, " stand still and know that I am God ". He says " wait upon the LORD ".
            Don't move around, don't become frantic or anxious let God take care of your most precious business. You have been faithful, now let Him be faithful to you, Stand still....and wait upon the LORD. His hand is not to short that it cannot save....believe me I know. He will be there and He will not allow any unnecessary " touching of His anointed or doing any of His Prophets harm ".
             Stop gathering together supplies and making plans for nothing. You cannot out run tribulation or death. Instead assemble yourselves for a greater battle in The Spirit of Christ. Let Him be your mentor. Help is on the way.......bring forth the fruits of repentance and shed the clothing of the unrighteous. Stand firm and wait upon your God...for He is faithful and will not lie nor repent. Rejoice and again I say " Rejoice in our God " let your banners fly and make supplication unto the Lord. He is faithful.
              Cast your cares into " the everlasting arms of The Almighty " and He will overcome your fears and anxiety. We are no doubt headed for a time of trouble. But God is faithful and true...His armies of the heavens out numbers the armies of the earth. And the battle has been set in array but only to the end, amen? Are you ready...is the battle cry. Can you be able to stand? When the life breath disappears and the glow of glory appears in the heavens. And all those who know the Lord stand still and wait upon their God. And see their everlasting King riding upon a mount with Glory attached to His Shield and Light being formed around Him and truth protruding from His mouth. And all those who are scornful and those who hate, begin to bow their knee in wonder and melt away. Their hand cannot prevail, their scorn cannot save them, they are the walking dead of this earth. Completely corrupted and forsaken forever, amen?
               Listen to me, " Today is The Day That The Lord has made, rejoice and be glad in it ". He created this day and form fitted it to your precious life. Feel the Spirit move and understand His motivations keep company with those of whom you love and keep silent before The Lord and let your healing's begin. Cry out like King David did, " Create in Me a clean heart Oh God, and renew a right Spirit within me, cast me not away from Thy presence and take not Thy Holy Spirit from me, restore unto me the joy of Thy salvation and create a right Spirit in me ".
                 Give Jehovah His greatest due, " Praise ". Praise God, exalt His Holy name and shout with a shout of rejoicing, lift your banners above to Him in " all that you do today ". And Praise and worship Him in Christ amen?
                  Heavenly Father thank You for Jesus Thy beloved Son and Thank You for being You. Thank You for showing us that You exist in all that we do and in everything that we say, amen? We will Praise You today and Bless Your Holy Name for every cure of every disease, for everything that has to do with every miraculous encounter. And filled with the joy of any whole some idea that is implanted into our souls for Your Name Sake, even in Christ forever amen. Thank You Jesus, for dying in my stead and taking down the strongholds of Satan and over throwing his principalities and powers forever amen. I ask this in Christ's Name forever amen.

   What Happens When You Are Dealing With a Serious Physical Issue?

         As I sit and write this. I am dealing with what others would call a serious physical issue. Its an appendix problem. It began to get pretty acute today..while I was doing some chores. But after realizing that i was having this issue. I also know that their is Only One Person Who can calm this sea and that is Jesus. He kept things pretty much intact for the disciples...for Paul and all those who have followed. Faith is the answer and Faith is the results. Not my faith but His within me through His Holy Spirit. Because He is the doctor and being the great Physician that He is, I am healed by His stripes, and given power to tread on serpents and scorpions and over the power of the enemy so that nothing by any means can hurt me( including appendix). He rose with healing in His wings so that I could still be healed no matter what. These are my beliefs and they are engraved in stone....the Cornerstone of Salvation that The Father sent to create all things and make all things possible amen?   This is where my faith lie's amen. Job said, even if He slay me I still trust Him....are we not steeped in this kind of faith and belief. Is there a doctor any where that can " save me "? No! Is there a Savior that can doctor me...yes by all means....and further more HEAL me. That is the most phenomenal idea of them all. I wait upon the Lord and be patient even in my situation and see what He has for me, amen? 
          Just keep me in your prayers and I will pray that everyone has a wonderful Easter and that you are given an awesome touch from on high over this week end during your memorial services of Christ's death, burial and Resurrection amen. Heavenly Father Thank You for Your long suffering and Tender Mercies and I ask that You become blessed through all those who read this. And find it worthy of Your everlasting Glory in Christ Jesus our Holy Redeemer..amen? Thank You Jesus for Your Mercy and Your Healing...amen?
