Merry Christmas to you all!

Merry Christmas to you all!

Today we celebrate the Prince of peace entering this temporal realm in the grandest display of humility ever! The uncreated, eternal Creator enters the stage of this world in the form of His own creation, in a vulnerable body of a little baby boy, passing through the womb of a pure virgin chosen for this task, and He was wrapped in swaddling cloths and placed in a manger, a feeding trough of animals his very first day here! No baby crib for this KING! This little baby boy would grow to be the Man to eventually bring about the redemption of all those who would believe and place their trust in Him. He lived a perfect sinless life, gave all that He was to His and His Father's purpose. He preached the message of His kingdom, the message of His peace, of His grace, a message hidden throughout the ages peering through the words inspired to the prophets who foretold His coming by the unction of the Spirit of God. He healed all who came to Him, He set those who were oppressed free, He raised the dead! He then gave Himself as the purest, most spotless sacrifice, a substitute for you and me. All abandoned Him in His passion, and even in His death on the cross the Father did momentarily as well. He went to the depths of hell for you and me, He proclaimed there His message of victory and dominion, and then rose a new Man, putting on the incorruptible body that He will forever have. In His resurrection He defeated death and the one who had it's power, and gave us the hope of the very same thing, an eternal glorified body for our very own to love and serve Him with for all eternity! For 40 more days He preached and showed Himself before many witnesses chosen before to see Him, even to over 500 at one time. He then ascended in front of His disciples back to heaven to sit at the right hand of the Father, and will soon return, not as the Lamb this time, but as the LION! GLORY TO THE KING OF KINGS, forever and ever! Thank You, Lord Jesus!

"The LORD bless you and keep you; The LORD make His face shine upon you, And be gracious to you; The LORD lift up His countenance upon you, And give you peace." Numbers 6:24-26

Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling. Kiss the Son, lest He be angry, and you perish in the way, when His wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all those who put their trust in Him. Psalm 2:11-12

Grace, peace and love in Jesus Christ!

A Short Reunion - In Jesus - 12-18-2015

I was walking home after a short half day at work today (I took an extra 3.5 hours to make some extra money on my day off.) and I noticed up ahead of me a man walking with a cane. He was quite bow legged and seemed to be in pain. I approached him and asked if he was in pain and explained that I pray for people and Jesus heals them and asked if I could do that for him. He said, "No, that's ok." It then dawned on me that he looked very familiar. So I asked if I had ever prayed for him before, stating that he looked very familiar. With a smile on his face, he said that I gave him a Bible before and that he still had it. Then it hit me that this was Wesley the first nations man who I met last February with whom I had prayed and who had also accepted the Lord. I told him how good it was to see him and said, "So, you are still dealing with that?" and pointed at his legs. He said "Ya, I have my surgery scheduled for March." I told him I was going to pray for him anyway. He said "ok." this time. He closed his eyes and bowed his head. I placed my hand on his chest and commanded all pain to go, I told his bones to shift, told his cartilage, muscles, tendons, ligaments, nerves, all to be healed in Jesus' name. I said the "the kingdom of heaven has come upon you, be healed, Jesus is healer and Lord, no need for surgery in March. I loose life and peace and healing head to toe" (Honestly, not that any of those words is necessary, because it is all by faith, regardless of what you say.). I asked him how it was. He started to walk a bit and said it felt a bit better. I felt to just leave it at that (he did seem to be in a bit of a rush) and took his hand to shake it before letting him go saying "It was good to see you brother, take care." and patted him on the back as he walked away.

As I walked away I thanked the Lord for letting me see him again and thought about how the devil will sometimes try to get back on us with the very thing we were once healed from. I commanded the devil to get off him in Jesus' name as I continued on. After I got about 50 feet or so away from where we had met, I heard him yelling at me from behind. I turned around to see him and he had his cane in the air, holding it by the lower end of the cane, waving it back and forth with a big grin on his face. I waved back to him. I assumed by the gesture that he was healed again.

As I walked home, I thought about how nice it must have been for him to have run into someone who believes the Lord for healing and to have it released it into him when he was in pain and has an appointment for surgery ahead. I thought about how I would sure like to run into a Christian that believes and does that if I am ever in a real need like that. Believe with me that it does not come back and no surgery is ever needed, won't you?

Grace, peace and love in Jesus Christ!
