                   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?

                       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?

         Have You Received All That The Bible Holds For You?

       Do you read your Bible intricately. Detailed accounts, not just topic subject matter. For instance. How many times have you read the story of Jesus, and the woman who came from Tyre and Sidon. Who's little girl was possessed with a devil. Matthew Chapter 15:21-28 and Mark 7:24-30. Now this woman, the Bible says, was a Greek, and a Syrophenician nationality. She was not a Jew, but considered to be a Gentile. She followed Jesus and His disciples. But His disciples besought Him to send her away. But instead she came and worshiped Christ the Bible says. Jesus being moved by her actions, struck up a conversation with her. After she had asked Him to cast the devil out of her daughter. But His conversation was not to promising. Whereas, He says, Mark 7:27: " But Jesus said unto her, Let the children first be filled: for it is not meet to take the children's bread, and cast it to the dogs ". This answer, was very harsh. Simply because this woman not being a Jew, and being a Gentile, could have taken very deep offense. Being called a " dog ". But she was on a mission, she had very deep problem with a daughter with a devil. And although Jesus was rebuking her and even insulting her in hopes of driving her away. She did not even feel insulted or angered. She deeply loved her daughter and was not about to allow anything to jeopardize her will to see her daughter's devil cast out. So in a turn of events, she herself pursued Christ beyond anything that He had seen. In her persistence, she accepted her status as a " dog " and used it along with her faith. And said, Mark 7:28; in part, "....Yes, Lord, yet the dogs under the table eat of the children's crumbs ".       Jesus could not deny the fact that she was setting the Jews as supreme to the Gentiles. And giving recognition to herself as inferior. But nonetheless, her expectations of what she was seeking was not diminished by any standard's. And instead, she prevailed and it was Jesus that was over come, and Mark 7:29 says, " And He said unto her, For this saying go thy way, the devil is gone out of thy daughter ". Her strong perseverance and reverse psychology with words. Paid off.
        Jesus in Matthew's account of this story, tell's this woman that He is only sent to the lost sheep of the House of Israel(Matthew 15:24). Which meant that He was not allowed by God. To heal any of Gentiles. His only mission was to see " the lost sheep of the house of Israel " receive salvation. And Christ had also warned His own disciples, not to go the Gentiles, nor into any city of the Samaritans to preach the Kingdom of God (Matthew 10:5). So when the Syrophenician woman, approached Jesus and his disciples. His disciples recognized her as a Greek and of Gentile descent. They immediately besought Jesus to send her away. As He had instructed them not to have any dealings with these people. But now here He is caught up in His Own situation and He made an extreme effort to rebuke this woman by straight out calling her a " dog ". But His tactic did not work. She prevailed against Him instead and her daughter was saved from the devil.
         These kinds of things are kind of hidden when you read them with merely a topic type glance. Not really being able to see the meat of the issues. And its this type of persistence that God is looking for in His Own children of whom He reaches out to save. No matter how deeply you are being insulted over matters that pertain to your race, your status, your livelihood or anything that pertains to your life. God's mercy will yield to it when your faith becomes a grand slam issue and a force to be reasoned with. God will not turn you away when you show such persistence as this woman did here with Christ. She was not about to be driven off until she was assured by Christ that her child no longer had a devil in her.
        So when you read and consider your Bible and what its attempting to tell you. You must absorb all that The Holy Spirit is attempting to teach you. The deep thing's of God in Christ. Its Him wanting you to see that He too can bend even in the most trying times. And under prevailing circumstances as this Greek woman did. She would not turn back until she received all that she came to get. And no matter what it took to get it she would pursue Jesus until it was done, amen? These are the circumstances that many today encounter. But its not actually the circumstances that become the problem. Insomuch as it is persuading God in Christ to help you over come them, amen?  Its faith that persevere's and over comes until you see and understand all is accomplished and done amen?
            I pray that God through His Holy Spirit of Christ within you. Will open your eyes and your heart to accepting things written in His word, with greater value and force. That even each and every nugget that you dig out and possess will become of some very great importance within your own personal life. As it did with this Syrophenician lady, amen. And May God bless You and keep through your journey in Christ forever, amen.

                      What is Your Position With God in Christ?

         I read a lot of posts and comments following a post. But I wonder what people actually think about their own position with God in Christ is?
Are we really called and chosen to " judge others "? What benefit is it to you or me to make judgment calls against other pastors and preachers? I can never figure that out. Even if I believe that their position is false or for any other reason than what the Bible says. Do I have a God given responsibility to challenge another Christian in his or her walk. Simply because they have a different doctrine than mine in Christ?
          You see a lot of what is called the Charismatic movement. They speak in what they say is tongues set out by The Holy Spirit. They stand before the people and they lay their hands on the sick and so called lame. And purportedly they are healed. You hear strange things coming from their mouths about prophecy and any number of things. But still.....what is it to me to judge this? Am I called and chosen to be a judge? Someone called prophet Brian Carn a " seer ". Because he supposedly has the ability to know peoples names before they tell them to him. And he purportedly calls out certain instances of circumstances about peoples lives. Seer's were later named prophets, but in order to be a Prophet of God in the old testament. You had to be  a Judge. Because when a Prophet came into a place to speak the words of God unto the people. He brought judgment upon them. They were usually being condemned for not taking heed to God's words of Moses and the law. Having a seer today has no relevance to that. Because we are already under judgment, by One Prophet, even Christ. He has brought the Word of God, to you. No need for another prophet. He became that Prophet that God raised up after the similitude of Moses. But not after that order...we are not after that order. We are after the original order of Melchizedek. Even as Christ was and is. Jesus became High Priest after the order of Melchizedek which was before Moses and the law. Being a New Order of Priesthood but yet not a new order of priesthood. But an order where no law was established yet.
      Hebrews outlines all of this in intricate detail. And in essence scorns the Hebrews for failing to be born again into Christ. Because while they still had sacrifices at the altar. Those things were no longer apparent as part of any law. Because the law had been fulfilled, by Christ, and that order was finished. A new order of priesthood was brought in. Moses and the prophets were no longer a part of that teaching. Because Christ manifested Himself first to Abraham, in the form of Melchizedek, being " high priest ". And shared also with Abraham, the " bread " and the " wine ". Of the new covenant. Jesus also testifying to the Jews saying, " Your father Abraham rejoiced to see My day: and he saw it, and was glad "(John 8:56). 
         So what I am saying what judgment do we have? To judge others regardless what they are doing. Is really nothing to me. Because on the most part....every one who has not accepted Christ and is not born of the Water and of The Spirit....are condemned already. And those who are claiming to be born again and are walking in some form of spirit, may also be condemned already. But just because they are not following you or I, and what we believe. Does that give us any more right or responsibility to call them out and thrash what they are doing?  
         For awhile here on Google Plus I was reading daily the posts of  a certain caliber judgment calls against other purported Christians. But I have noticed that those posts no longer get shared. Because its hard to force feed people your doctrine. They listen for a little while and then they gag on it. I come to an example in the Bible. John and James his brother, were walking along when they saw a man casting out devils in Jesus Name. And they forbid the man. Because he did not belong to Christ's group of disciples. But when John had determined that he had done a great deed. And then told Jesus what he  had done. Jesus wasn't to happy. Because He says, " Forbid him not: for he that is not against us is for us (Luke 9:50); and again recorded at Mark Chapter 9 verse 39, saying " Forbid him not: for there is no man which shall do a miracle in My name, that can lightly speak evil of Me ". So this being said, isn't it better not to judge others? As far as prophet's, priest's, preachers and all whoever call upon the Name of Lord. Are not called by my name, nor have I baptized any or given them salvation. So its Christ who must judge.
          When you are judging others its a form of Spiritual abuse and condemnation that has no love, nor mercy. So I refrain to be judgmental. I may add something that someone is posting but mostly is scriptural. Not by my own understanding. We are of a different order than the old testament order of Moses and Aaron. They were of the Levitical order, being called through Levi. But as Hebrews says we are come through Judah which Christ was of. And therefore our calling is in Him, not Moses or Aaron. But after the order of Melchizedek, in whom was no law. So whom The Son makes free is free indeed....no law, at all. And He was ordained the New High Priest, who also said, but a new commandment do I give unto you. That ye love one another: as I have loved you, that ye love one another. By this shall all men know that ye are My disciples, if ye have love one to another ". This does not say that ye judge one another as I have judged you.
            Its not a weak message, but a true message. Our Priest is Greater than all, amen? Thank You Jesus for Your greatest asset, LOVE!!! Amen!

                    Judas Iscariot knew Jesus personally, walked with Him and was even given power to heal the sick and cast out demons. But he received a special part in the ministry of Christ. His part was to be deceiver. It was even predetermined by God that Judas would betray Jesus. So now, are false prophets and Christians also chosen for their parts? They do all the fundamental scriptural reading, and professing. They carry the word to the people and teach on the kingdom of God and have confessions so wonderfully touching that it deceives people. 
                  I hear a lot about Judas from Christians and what they think happened to him. That he was lost forever and all of that. But I do not see that written emphatically in my Bible. People emphasize many things that are not written emphatically. They lend a line or two, kind of like Hollywood does when they film a movie about Jesus.  Preachers would have you believing every word that they preach. And they window dress the scriptures. with " I think " or " well, I'm assuming the Bible says ". Nothing clearly says that Judas perished. That is earthly theology saying that. Twelve foundations are built in the City of the living God, bearing the twelve names of the apostles of Christ. And if you believe anything, written in scripture Matthew declares Chapter 19: 28, And Jesus said unto them, " Verily I say unto you, That ye which have followed Me,......in the regeneration when the Son of Man shall sit in the throne of His glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel ". He says ye shall sit upon twelve thrones....not eleven thrones....and one out of time so called apostle....named Matthias.
             Here awhile back here on Google plus, a certain man was claiming that there are " only twelve apostles of Christ ". No more exist, because He chose those twelve only. But there are those who argue that Judas perished also. So when you consider these Google plus teachings and their theology. Its enough to make you understand that many are " look at me " I am a Christian. 
            Judas was as false prophet as any one and yet he had everything that every other apostle had....except he would be considered a " Mormon, or a Jehovah's Witness, or a Southern Baptist, or a Greek Orthodox, or a Catholic, or a Presbyterian, or a Methodist, by the standards of some. Judas would fall into the category of Joel Osteen, Kenneth Copeland, Creflo Dollar, Jimmy Swaggart, Binny Hinn, Joyce Meyer, Gloria Copeland, Francis Swaggart, Donnie Swaggart, T.D. Jakes, The Crouch's, Pat Robertson, Jim Robinson, John Hagee and all the many who " deceive " the people, and crucify Christ for the cash.    But you know it never ceases to amaze me. We are all guilty of certain things. Patronizing Google..who also solicits naked women, and homosexuals, and trashy videos on You Tube. You pay for internet service so that they can patronize these wicked things and cater to the world's thirst for lust and deception. And although you say, well I do not join in with the worldly ideas. Ha, what a joke....this very inter net service is a world market for sinners and corruptible people. But you use it right along with them and pay them to use it. Without your support, trash might not be there. Aw, but Oh Brother I am a saint, I do not do what the world does. The world built the computer and the internet. The world sucked you in to buy this piece of merchandise and your first thoughts was " I will use this to get the word out to the
world ". But the computer alone is not corruptible. Its when you decided to rent the internet for a nominal charge from a company that solicits worldly corruption. You are giving Gods money that He has furnished you to be blessed. To the devil that holds the keys to the internet. And he uses your God given money to promote what you say God is against. So now, you think Satan fears you and all your Christian ideas? Ha, he has you subtly entreated, each month you lace his pockets with your Fathers gifts. And he uses it for soliciting every evil under the sun. There is more corruption on Google, Aol, Yahoo, You Tube, Twitter, Microsoft, and all the social net works than there is Christian out reaches. But none the less, indirectly if you pay a cable bill, or use an AT&T phone internet service or any company that provides world wide web. You are helping gender the corruption that they use to make billions. HEAR: Paul says, " But I fear, LEST BY ANY MEANS , as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ ".( 2 Corinth. 11:3).  Paul uses " Lest by any means ". Whatever the means that the serpent can use he will get you. Internet services are that means by which you service two masters.
           So now, when you think about the subtle way that your internet provider has sucked you in. To cause your eyes to be enlightened. With a very unique idea....using the internet to get the word out to the world. If the internet was " free " you would have no sin. But when you are duped into paying for its services, which also are used to corrupt the people that you claim to be saving. It doesn't match up.
          Is this observation way off base? Do you think Christ really doesn't care if you use the internet to get the word out? Well maybe you are prostituting yourself out to the devil. Maybe he's your pimp. Sucking you in making you believe that your works are justified because they are of Christ. But in order to get to that so called justification. You have to pay the devil that owns the world wide web and its corruption. You have to feed that wealthy worldly provider, that you claim God hates so much. Because he is a " rich man ".  So with part of the money that the Lord has blessed you with, has become an abomination to the Lord. Whereby you use it for the purpose of devilment and deceit. Knowing that Satan rules this world and he contrives evil through technology and forces of invisible spirit origin.
             I guess we are all living an abomination of some kind and its inevitable that its through these invisible means. That we are sucked in to contribute to worldliness and shameful antics of the wicked through world wide technology.

             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 ".

                                        Does Sickness Effect Your Life?

         What actually happens when you are born again? Are you not steeped in The Spirit of Christ? That immortal power and glory of God, that no man can tamper with.  When you see or hear of another believer receiving an operation. Are you kind of taken back by it. Just think you have worn your body all the days of your life. With no major operations. And you feel that now that you are born again. That it would be  a great violation of your Spiritual inner man to be attacked in such a way that you cannot get a healing. And have to resort to a doctor and rely on him to keep you going and alive. Is this a fallacy?
         To have been born again at any age. Is the pinnacle of life's resources. Because to know that you have God's Holy Spirit abiding in you. Is to know that nothing by any means can hurt you. So there fore to at some point have to have an operation of earthly origin. Seems like a violation of that God has given you to rely on.
         But in many instances, we get to see the reality of other people's faith...and truth. Because while they have endured what might of been a good fight. They have not really relied on Christ when it was necessary. And they failed to get into His Spirit. They have attended services at a church, have read their Bibles, and even been great witnesses for the Lord throughout a period of time. But without the Spirit of Christ dwelling within you. Allowing you to know Him on a personal daily basis. You are not safe guarded from Satan. And his distinct spiritual attacks can come when you least expect it. And when you attempt to rebuke him, it has no evident power. And the longer the problem persists the more you seek the Lord. But the situation becomes grave and in fear you submit to a doctors knife. Crucial situation indeed.
         So okay you have attended church, Bible Studies, sung praises unto the Lord, witnessed for the King and shared everything that you were ever taught about Him. But now you need a miracle. And God is silent. And the pain is unbearable and the faith that you once enjoyed is seemingly fading. Because what seems to be the right thing to do. Is in fact a violation of principle. Because your trusting another man to be your savior. He becomes your alternate choice in the " flesh ". And your situation is critical. Live or die, is the only two choices you are given in the natural. So you opt for the living...hoping that the doctor can indeed save you. But what purpose are now living for? Beyond that operation there is a life yet to be lived. But now you are faced with a real question of Truth. Is there a real God that loves me and when I really needed a miracle He was no where near. Sad as it may seem, many go through this very trauma. Having spent years cultivating their souls by habitual ideas of the flesh and claiming to be walking in the Spirit. But when being tested, their faith is not what they thought it to be by the standards of a church society or a Bible Study. I was amazed by the great evangelist Katherine Kuhlman, who witnessed to thousands about the Holy Spirit and His charge over her soul. But when she became sick, she too, wept and lost faith in God and went and allowed doctors to attend to her. This is sad, because it drives in the wrong example. Fear over took her....fear of death. That is not a genuine Spiritual attribute. Death is the immortal stepping stone that takes us to Christ by way of His  Spirit. The immortal power of God in Christ is not fear, but faith. Not so much with in us. But within His Spirit within us. That is the determining factor between life eternal and death itself. In you is the residual power of Almighty God, transforming you from death to life every single day. Death has no holds on you, you are immortal and can feel that immortal Spirit of Christ daily. He has baptized you Spiritually with a cleansing fire, an immortal being. Keeping you alive now and forever more once you shed the mortal frame work. The mortal frame work returns to the dust, while the immortal power of God in Christ returns to Him in like fashion as He has given it, amen. These are the ideas that The Holy Spirit implants within your soul. Fearing death is not like it used to be, before you were born again. Its not the taking of water baptism that sustains you in an immortal sense. Its the baptism of The Holy Ghost that ascends from on high that gives you that immortal sense of truth and well being even in this life.
          The sad part, is you cannot tell another Christian these things when they have been brain washed into believing their form of the gospel. Its a fleshly form of God with no power. They are all to quick to tell you about their religion rather than their God in Christ Jesus. And when they are pained by sickness or disease they are eventually faithless. Because long intentional prayer has not solved their situation. And they find themselves in a very grave situation. A situation that calls for an operation from a doctor. These means are in essence set up for the faithless. And while there is a great controversy surrounding all of this among Christians. That controversy has no merit at all. Some believe that doctors were created by God. And in essence they are. But not for the faithful....but for the faithless. Faith moves our mountains, even the most smallest amount of faith. But when you are not born again Spiritually from on high, through Christ's Holy Spirit. You cannot please The Father. Because its by faith that we are saved. That faith is in Christ Jesus, Who also became that faith that pleases The Faith. Jesus is the " Author and Finisher " of our faith. Its by His faith that we are even saved at all. And its by His faith that we have received of Him that we are able to even please The Father. So being water baptized, is not Spiritual Baptism into Christ. Because its Christ that manifests Himself within us by His Holy Spirit from on high. Its as much physical as it is Spiritual. You feel every drop of His incarnation into your soul, and into your mortal body, giving it an immortal estate Spiritually. So in order to allow another's hands to pierce you and remove anything from you that was the original design of God's Holy glory for you. Is in violation to you. We account for every area of our bodies to every essential part. Both Spiritually and physically. And to seek for this great Spiritual power is in itself as much of God as anything. He sets us apart for Himself. We are called and chosen and given an essential part to play.
         Sickness in itself can generate repentance when fear of death comes  into play. Fasting, praying, trembling and seeking God with all your heart. And He will allow you to be drawn for days, weeks and even months of doing these things before He actually appears. But when He does appear, its something so phenomenal that at first its to awesome to comprehend. But the eternal joy that comes with it is above and beyond anything we as humans can believe is happening to us when it does happen. But whats even more awesome. Is the fact that it never leaves or subsides. His presence is abundant in truth. Always preparing your heart for rebuke of anything that Satan can throw at you. Nothing by any means can hurt you once you have received the power from on high. No sickness, no diseases...nothing. Because God is your Shield Spiritually and Satan knows that. He still attempts to get at you, but he already knows that his deepest attempts are feeble at best, amen?
         If you are a Christian, and you have any form of sickness that you have been dealing with for any length of time. You need to get serious with your faith...fasting, praying and trembling at God's word. He is a healer...not the doctor. And to have your healing done up right is for God to do it for you. Being more than a conqueror through Christ is the best medicine there is. None other exists, amen.
         Just remember, when you have truly received from Christ personally what He has to offer. You are given power to tread over serpents and scorpions and over all the power of the enemy that nothing by any means can hurt you. Jesus say, Nothing By Any Means Can Hurt You...no sicknesses, no nothing amen?
          Thank You Lord for being our Health and our Happiness in times when we need refreshing and glorified in You. Blessing Yourself within us and using us all for Your Most Precious Glory. I pray even as I ask that those who read what has been written here accept it as a very unique truth. Something that I have relied on for a very long time in my  life. And You were always right there for me amen. Thank You Jesus and I Praise You and The Father forever and ever amen?

                  Praise The LORD for all of us Hypocrites, amen?
 If God uses hypocrites, then all the people who still confess Christ whether they are scorned evangelists or cash and carry preachers. He still gets the juices out of them. So why call them false prophets, and evil doers. We all are sinners....and John writes, " If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us "(1 John 1: 8). But in every case of our sin, we have a new beginning, when we confess our sins to Christ. As John also writes, " If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness "( 1 John 1:9). Each day you must confess your sin and ask The Lord to forgive you them and " Cleanse you of ALL unrighteousness ". Everyday has brand new slate, when you confess your sin. Yesterday's hypocrite, does not need to linger to become today's hypocrite as well.
           Once you are born again whether hypocrite or not. The Spirit that you have within you has a job assignment. He is to make sure that you preach the kingdom of God. And although you may be called a hypocrite, a false teacher, or false prophet....remember this: " Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every Spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God "(1 John 4:2). So regardless what men may think it is God that justifies you, not men.
             The only truth there is: is the Word of God. When you speak His words of truth its because He is within you summing up your every revelation in life. Even King David could not contain himself, saying " My heart was hot within me; while I was musing the fire burned: then spake I with my tongue "(Psalm 39:3). Jeremiah also says, at chapter 20 verse 9, " Then I said, I will not make mention of Him, nor speak any more in His name. But His word was in mine heart as a burning fire shut up in my bones, and I was weary with forbearing, and could not stay ".
            Now the Holy Ghost has plenty to say. He has much to record for the glory of the Lord. And its at His table that we all sit and discuss what we do for Him and His glory. What we may appear to be, is not exactly what we are....so hypocrites never the less. But none the less to the glory of The Lord. We are not flawless, but we are chosen in what estate we are brought forth to represent The King. If you are mighty so be it, but if you are weak so be it. But there are great vessels and not so great vessels in every house. Even so within the Lord and His Kingdom. So should I be apprehensive about what I say, only if it does not Glorify God. Whatever man may think of me so be it. But whatever God thinks of me Praise The lord. End of conversation. Because I do not seek to please no man. And any one who judges me for any reason, it has no bearing on my soul. I have One who judges me and His Judgment is all that counts. This has been my recognition since the day I was born again, in 1983. And I have walked among great sinners and saved alike. And what's more, I have had the wonderful opportunity to meet Christ through His Spirit. And I know what I have in Him. Whether I am called a hypocrite, a false prophet or a heretic. Its nothing to your glory that you should call me that. But a defining moment of Holiness has rested upon me time after time and assurance has been given to me many times. I am a miracle of Christ. Because while I was once a chief sinner....He saved me and forgave me...ALL my sins. So what I speak, or write I consider only to His glory.
I feel special...blessed by all means. Because I spent twenty two years behind bars for a very serious crime against God. But He came to me and brought His blessed blood to reinstate my soul. And give me compassion and long suffering. For He is King. Being special because how many other prisoners do you see, leaving prison with Christ compassionately tucked away in their hearts. How many has God called from within, and to set His Only Begotten Son's Spirit upon to preach the gospel. I guess if you want call me a hypocrite for God and Christ...hey knock yourself out. But where I once was blind, now I see. Some would say..." do you actually know Christ "? And I would say,
" Yes, but better yet, He also knows me and I am His forever " amen? To believe in God is one thing. But to know God even as your Father is still yet another. Personally inhabited by God's Own Holy Spirit, wow, is amazing grace and a Spiritual Redeemer that lives amen? Some one Who communicates with you daily. Is that awesome or what. Praise His Holy Name. His fire is shut up in my bones....and when it is truly kindled I speak and do not hold my tongue or thoughts amen, thank You Jesus. And Bless You Forever amen?

                               Google Plus Followers
         I see some guru's of the word, always talking about false teachers and evil prophets. But how many people have they led astray themselves with their thousands of Google followers and all their " views " statistics. Just because you can quote the scriptures and add a little " t-bone " to your meal. Does not make it a truth? Deciphering, two words, " believers " from " worshipers " is a fundamental observation that deploys the idea. Of what you know and don't know about scripture. You are justified by your words.....or you are condemned by them. And every idle word that you add to your sermons will be held against you. No matter who you are. You might think you are God's greatest gift to the Christian world. But you are to short sighted to see yourself as having flaws or fallacies. And all your Google followers are just like you because they accept your words as " gospel ". Instead of following Jesus as we are told to do....you relish the idea that you have thousands of followers and your comments have millions of views. So that alone speaks reams to your credibility. BUT IT DOESN'T. Its all babble and " Look At Me " rhetoric.
            Google plus offers  a place to air what you think in terms of Christianity. But the follower part of it is wrong. We are not to justify each others words as if we are someone great. Yet there are many on here that do that. I delete my posts and I do not condone followers. To have followers...is occultist. Charles Mansion had followers and his misguided teachings led people to do and say things that were deeply off track. I do not like people sharing what I post either. I am not a celebrity class Christian. If that's your ambition then you should get a television ministry going. You'll have millions of followers daily. Sending you cash and you will be a  " C.B.N. " or a " T.B.N " celebrity guru.
         When you stand and accuse others of being false prophets and place yourself above every other form of Christianity. You make yourself a god in perfection. There is a complete difference between a believer....and a worshiper. A believer is someone who has not completely united herself to Christ by the Spirit. They are book and Bible worms. They underline scripture and study it and memorize it and use it to kill, steal and destroy with. Its their sword, and its a two edged evil. When applied by some. They never talk about the healing's that comes with The Spirit. They never talk about the laying on of the hands and the power of The Spirit. They only have the propensity to defame others and a spirit that speaks evil. And they relish their followers because their followers are just like them. ISIS is a people who use a " word " in the name of God to steal, kill and destroy. They condemn everything that is not like them or a part of their " beliefs ". And its not a " worship " God thing its a " believer " in God thing. A great difference.....we are called " to worship in the beauty of holiness ". We are not called to " believe " in the beauty of holiness. Devils also believe and tremble.
               In closing this, I will say with all my heart, if I am held accountable for every word that I have established here then so be it. But anger and violence is a way I once knew. Neither of them was of the Lord. And because of that....He changed me. To understand the truth is to humble yourself and not strive but be gentle to " ALL " men, apt to teach and patient. Paul the apostle to the gentiles wrote this to Timothy....and if its supposed to be that way. Then so be it. But if you think yourself more Spiritual than Paul. Then take up your rivalry and march on. Yet I will also stand with him as the apostle of Christ, as he was, saying " But what I do, that I will do, that I may cut off occasion from them which desire occasion; that wherein they glory, they may be found as we. For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.(2 Corinth. 11:12-13) ".....Let such an one think this, that, such as we are in word by letters when we are absent, such will we be also in deed when we are present. For we dare not make ourselves of the number, or compare ourselves with some that commend themselves; but they measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves among themselves are not wise "(2 Corinth.10:12).  Wisdom becomes the franchise of God Almighty. His wisdom alone stands apart from all other. But wisdom does not compare to worship. Worship is God inhabiting His people, honoring Himself, Praise, Honor and Glory. And these three are One. Praise unto the Father, Honor unto the Son, and Glory set aside in both heaven and in earth by The Spirit. God compels all three and all three are worship.  I would rather stand and give God Praise, Honor and Glory....than speak one scripture laced with anger and vicious reproach against a brother....amen!!!!!
