In Jesus - 12-23-2012 - A tear and a kiss

I was at Walmart before heading over to my parent's place for dinner and got to pray for a man in a wheel chair. He had osteo arthritis. His hands were starting to twist up. He also had these sores on his skin but I'm not sure what they were. They were on his face and hands. Pretty much any of his exposed skin. I was in the check out when I noticed them (him and a female), waiting just past the check out lines at the front of the store by the greeter. I approached them and asked what was wrong. Why he was in the wheel chair. He had explained the infirmity that was on him. I asked what the pain level was at, but he said he was feeling pretty good right now as he had taken something to kill the pain. His name was Neil. I forget her name. I explained "I pray for people and God heals them. Can I pray for you? Would you like to be healed?" He seemed thankful and said yes. With his permission, I took his hand that was already starting to twist up, covered in these little bumpy sores, into my hands and looked at him and commanded the spirit of arthritis to leave him. I commanded all pain to leave him. I took authority over every infirmity and commanded it OUT with soft but forceful voice and finished it up with "in Jesus' name". I could see a tear start to roll down out of his right eye. I asked him how he felt and if he felt any different. He took my hands to his face and kissed them. It was quite evident how thankful and hopeful he truly was. He said he would know after. I am guessing he meant after the medication wore off. I believe he is healed. God's word don't lie, Mark 16:18. You know, I don't know why, but I completely forgot to ask him to get up and try walking. It wasn't like I was in unbelief and thinking he wouldn't be able to. It was just a thought that was completely absent from my mind. Next time, I guess. Maybe I gotta slow down and actually love on these people more than I am. Mind you, I was late for dinner and in a bit of a rush to get there. Help me to be more like you, Lord. It sure blessed me to see his reaction though. I asked the female how she was doing and if there was anything I could pray for her for, but she was fine. I also asked Neil if there was anything else. He said no too. We parted ways wishing each other a Merry Christmas. God is good!

Stop for the one. It might not be perfect all the time, but we never know the impact we have on people, even in that short amount of time.

Grace, peace and love!

In Jesus - 12-21-2012 - End of the world

So, for the end of the world today I got to pray for and bless a couple people. I think this is good. For the last couple of months I haven't been making too much extra effort in stepping out to share the gospel of the kingdom in word or by deed (ie, healing the sick). I feel it is time to step that up again. I desire to be more fruitful in the Lord. I think you will see more updates from me in the coming months. I hope that it may encourage some of you who read this blog (Matt. 5:16, Heb.10:24).

At lunch break, I met Rick and Denise. Rick was in a motorized chair/buggy and had MS on him. They were fellow Christians. I got to lay hands on Rick and command healing into his body and the MS out. I also shared some with them in how I believe the scriptures show that it is always God's will to heal. Rick was thankful for the prayer and said that he had felt better after it. I did not have him try to walk though. I should have. But they were in a bit of a rush to get going after our talk. I will try to remember to press for that next time.

On my way home from work I met a man named Bill whom I had prayed for last August. He was having back pains again. I laid my hand on his back and commanded the pain to leave in Jesus' name. He reported it being much better afterwards and was really blessed and thankful. As was I.

I forget how much of a blessing it is to myself when I step out to give people a blessing from the Lord as a son of light in the kingdom of God.

Thank you for using me today, Father! MORE!

Grace, peace and love!

In Jesus - 12-20-2012 - leg grows, pain goes, some renewing comes.

After work today I was talking with a brother in Christ in the front lobby of the building. I noticed that he was putting his hand on his back so I asked him about back pain. I had prayed for him a few months before and it left. He said it was back. Well, Jesus grew out his leg today and took the pain away again. I love that! It encouraged him to be able to do the same for his own family. His mother was in hospital with a growth in her stomach and they fear it is cancer. I shared with him... we are all, as believers, to be able to lay hands on the sick and see them recover (Mark 16:17-18). We all, as believers, will do the same works as Jesus did and even greater works because He went to the Father (John 14:12) and sent the Holy Spirit to live inside of us (John 16:7). The Holy Spirit is the anointing that abides (1 John 2:27). He does not leave you (John 14:16). You always have the anointing in you. It is just that our minds have to be renewed to the truths found in the word of God as to who we are in Him and who He is in us. Renew our minds and we will be able to prove the good and perfect will of God (Romans 12:2). Part of that will is that the sick should be healed and set free from the oppression of the devil. God was with Jesus and He went about doing good, healing all oppressed by the devil, and if you are a born again believer, He is with you too so that you can do the same (Acts 10:38). Just take authority over the works of the devil (Luke 10:19) in the believer, non-believer or dead person, commanding the sickness or unclean spirit out, and their bodies to be healed, made whole, or to receive life in Jesus' name. The prayer of faith to save the sick (James 5:15) is talking about the faith of the person praying, not the person receiving the prayer.

What do you think? Do you think it's a good time to get your mind renewed? Are you wanting to see God move powerfully through you and giving others a real encounter with the God who lives inside you and desires for them to be saved, healed, and set free? Aside from reading the word of God, believing what you read, and doing it, listening to these can help get you there too. Sometimes lies or incorrect thinking regarding healing and things of the kingdom have to be addressed directly. That is where these teachings can really help:

Return to Your First Love

Return to your first love and be filled with all the fullness of God!


What is it to love? What is it to know God?

Unto the angel of the church of Ephesus write; These things saith he that holdeth the seven stars in his right hand, who walketh in the midst of the seven golden candlesticks; I know thy works, and thy labour, and thy patience, and how thou canst not bear them which are evil: and thou hast tried them which say they are apostles, and are not, and hast found them liars: And hast borne, and hast patience, and for my name's sake hast laboured, and hast not fainted. Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love. Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent. But this thou hast, that thou hatest the deeds of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God. Revelation 2:1-7 (KJV)

For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man; That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God. Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen. Ephesians 3:14-21 (KJV)

Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it. Matthew 7:22-27 (KJV)

I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman. Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit. Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you. Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me. I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing. If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned. If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you. Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples. As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love. If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father's commandments, and abide in his love. These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full. This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you. Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you. Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you. Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you. These things I command you, that ye love one another. John 15:1-17 (KJV)

And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure. 1 John 3:3 (KJV)

Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord Hebrews 12:14 (KJV)

For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works. Titus 2:11-14 (KJV)

Grace, peace, and LOVE in Jesus Christ!
