Have you ever had things going on in your life and you have no idea exactly what to do, and then someone says to you that you need to break the curse of the things around you? They then tell you to do two things, first they tell you to anoint your door posts with oil and to top everything else off they tell you to walk around your house seven times. Your thoughts are, has this person lost their mind, or that is the dumbest thing I have ever heard.
If you don’t mind, I have said the very things and I have done it at the prompting of God. There is plenty of evidence in the bible that would validate what was said. First the anointing of the door posts represents protection. During the plagues that were occurring to Egypt the last plague was the Angel of Death and God told Moses to tell His people to put lambs blood over their door and that death would pass them by.(Exodus 12:1-13) The next was walking around your house seven times. In Joshua 6:4-20, God told Joshua to march around the Jericho seven times then sound the trumpet and then shout. They did as God had commanded and at the shout the walls came tumbling down.
So you might say what does that have to do with my problem and how in the world will that even help? The answer is very simple. When you anoint your door posts with oil you are saying God protect my home and all that is in it. Don’t allow the enemy to come in and steal from me any longer. Just as death passed by the Hebrews when their doors were anointed so will the enemy be held out because the anointing is far stronger than anything the enemy has and he is bound to pass by? The walking around your home is a symbol and represents your faith and how the enemy will fall just as the walls fell. You are showing God how much you want him to reign in your life and that you are ready to shout down the enemy that he may fall and come crashing down.
I know that this all may sound just a little bizarre, but I can assure you that whatever it takes to move God on our behalf even using what He had done and said thousands of years ago, we should use. The bible says that He is the same yesterday, today and forever, and with that truth He will use the same methods He used in the past to assure our conquering the enemy. The enemy comes to kill, steal, and to destroy and it is my belief that we should just trust God because He is the only one that has the answer and the only one who can destroy the enemy. “For without Me you can do nothing (John 15:5)” that is what Jesus had to say and that is a truth you cannot deny. When will we realize how much we need Jesus in our lives and how much He wants us to defend ourselves even if it means using what God used for the Hebrews?
We need to understand that against all that is in the realm of this world and this life it is impossible for us to do and we require God to see us through. Matthew 19:26 says, for man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible. Do you see it or did you just pass it by quickly, FOR MAN THIS IS IMPOSSIBLE, BUT WITH GOD ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE. If you don’t get anything else that I have written get this fact that with God all things are possible and that includes the problems you may be having and the disasters that you have been stricken with. God is the way and not only that but He is the Only Way.
I may not understand everything and every way God uses but it has always worked and who am I to doubt. Regardless of how ridiculous it may sound God uses the simple things to dumfound the wise, so I will just listen to Him and obey as He says it.
Speak those things into existence.
One thing that I have come to know is if you want or need God to move in your life then you need to begin to speak into existence what it is you are seeking. When you open your life to the positive I believe you get the attention of God and He answers your requests. He answers your prayers, but by the surrender of yourself to the heart of God you open a new door that no man can shut. The bible says that when God opens a door no man can shut it and if He closes a door no man can open it (Revelation 3:7). When we surrender to Him, we prompt Him to open doors for us.
Think about this, when you worship and you lift up your arms toward heaven, you feel a release. There is something there that was not there a minute before. It is God and He is moving in your life. When we lift our arms and our hearts to Him, it stirs Him to move because it is surrender that He is looking for. Too many times we miss the mark. We are looking for things to happen in our lives, in our ministries, but we miss the mark by thinking, when we should in fact be praising God and worshipping Him.
We need to start giving God what God expects and that is our total and complete surrender. We need to realize that God already knows our heart and He knows how we are going to react to situations, but it is us who need to realize that if it were not for God then we would indeed have absolutely nothing. I fail this test all of the time, but God is so gracious and so loving He always gives me a second, third, fourth chance to surrender to Him. If you really wanted to be honest about the whole surrender thing then you would indeed surrender every time in every instance, but you and I both know that we are not perfect and we will never be and there are going to be those times when we try to get ahead of God and try to get it done ourselves to which we fail miserably.
Do you want to see things happen in your life? Are you looking for the supernatural to move into your life and heal you and set you free? Then I have the perfect answer for you, begin to worship and praise God regardless of what it may look like through your eyes or through any situation and you will move God to move on your behalf and whatever you ask for in His name shall be yours (John 11:22). Seek God first and save yourself a lot of pain and strife. You have done it before and nothing has changed since that time. God is still who He has always been and He does everything exactly the same way every time. The bible says that Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever (Hebrews 13:8). The surrender to him has never changed and it has been what he has been seeking from us since the beginning.
Right now right where you are just lift your hands to Him and begin to feel His presence in your life and then ask Him for what it is in your life that you need and it shall be yours.
Love the Lord God!
Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength. Mark 12:30
I have heard it said, I will serve God my way and you serve God your way. According to the bible, you are actually saying, I will love God my way and you love God your way. There is only one way to love God and that is exactly word for word the way Jesus said it, Love the Lord your God will all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength. He did not say do it this way or do it that way, He said only His way.
It really bothers me when I hear someone say to someone else or even say it to me that they serve or love God in their own way. For me that is a total cop out and it is so transparent that it is unbelievable. It sounds like they are trying to avoid hearing about God or they just want you to be quiet so they don’t have to hear about Him. Either way there is only one way and one way only and that is according to Jesus and the bible.
This all sounds like I am being critical of those and maybe I am but I want people to understand how important it is to not only love God but want to be like Jesus and follow His instructions as recorded in the bible. As an evangelist it is important for me to understand this love as to relay it on to the people God puts in my path. Without that love or the understanding of that love I would be totally useless in what God has called me to do.
I relay that love by telling people about Jesus and what He can do in their lives. How He can change their lives in ways that they could never understand. If it were not for Jesus I have no idea where I would be or if I would even be. You really need to understand the love of God and how we need to love Him. He gives the air to breathe and our abilities to do whatever it is we do.
If you don’t know Jesus as your personal Savior, then my question to you would be why not? What is the reason you are waiting? Do you even realize how much He loves you? Are you tired of everything going a different direction than what you thought it would, or are you tired of your health and problems associated with it? Then I got the answer you have been looking for and that answer is Jesus. Jesus can do more for you than you could ever imagine.
I did not think that He could do anything for me years ago either, but when I reached that point in my life where I had nowhere else to turn and everything was going deeper downhill than I cared for, Jesus took me by the hand lifted me up and showed me a love like no other. So, I love the Lord God with all of my heart, all of my soul, all of my mind and all of my strength and there is nothing that will change that. God rescued me when I needed it the most and I will forever be grateful.
The way I like to show my love for God is to do what He has called me to do and do it with everything that is within me. The reason I write these blogs and tell others about Jesus. If there is anything that I don’t want to see happen that would be to see people not go to heaven because they were not told. Though I may not know you or will even have a chance to meet you and speak to you face to face I can tell you through these writings of how much Jesus loves you.
It is easier than you think to receive Jesus, He made it very simple for you and if you ask Him into your life and mean it in your heart, you will be saved and have eternal life. (John 3:16) If you believe really want to know Him please read John 3:16 and it will show you the love He has for you.
Be Careful What You Hear!
God is expecting us to be very careful of all we hear, see, think, and do. Recently I heard a statement that got my attention and I started thinking on that statement. I was thinking how good it sounded and how much sense it made. Suddenly there came a quickening in my spirit and I had a sense about me that said, be careful what you hear. Make sure that everything lines up with my Word. What you hear is not always the truth but deception to get you off track. That awakening caused me to realize that everything we do everything we think and everything we say needs to be filtered through the Word of God.
We need discernment as our filter. When you are speaking with someone and something doesn’t seem quite right, then it probably isn’t. God puts that filter inside of us and He expects us to use it. That filter has a name and the name is the Holy Spirit. God sent the Holy Spirit as a helper for us to do the right things and to do the things of God. In John 14:26 Jesus said to His disciples, but the Helper, the Holy Spirit who my Father will send will teach you all things (paraphrase). One of those things is how to listen to Him and make sure that you do not get lead astray.
The things of the enemy comes subtlety, without our conscience being aware of anything different. The bible says that the enemy will come looking to see who he can devour. (1Peter 5:8) It is with simple statements that sound good but if it does not line up with the Word of God then let it fall to the ground. We are to discern [To see or understand the difference; to make distinction; as, to discern between good and evil, truth and falsehood.] all that we hear, see or come in contact with. Don’t allow yourself to be taken in by the enemy’s schemes and trickery. We all fall prey to the subtlety of the enemy but when we have our discernment working and we are making sure that what we hear aligns with the bible we are able to drop the false in order to receive the truth.
There is a kids song that puts into perspective the truth of discernment and it goes like this, be careful little ears what you hear, oh be careful little ears what you hear. For the Father up above is looking down with love, so, be careful little ears what you hear. The song also mentions eyes and feet. With everything that is within us we must be vigilant to our surrounding and those things that come at us on a daily basis. We need to be reading the bible constantly and praying so as to be prepared when the enemy comes to attack us with subtle words. Those words can sneak in and before we know it things are not going along as well as they should, or you are not spending the time in church like you were. Whatever the case may be we need to open our spiritual senses up to the Lord and allow Him access to our heart in order to battle the enemy.
You cannot fight the enemy on your own. You need the guidance of Christ in your life to assure victory in your life. We all go through battles and it is those battles that end up making us stronger and more secure in the Lord. Allowing Christ into our lives will not assure we don’t have battles but is does assure that when that battle is over we are the victors and not the enemy.
If you are struggling today and are seeking the help of the Lord to help you through it, be assured that He has heard your cry and for you the battle has come to an end. God promised that He would never leave us nor forsake us and when we allow Him to rule in our lives we become stronger and the battles become shorter because we have a weapon that the enemy cannot defeat.
The next time you are listening to a program or to someone speaking and there is a feeling in you that says this is not right, it is probably not and that feeling is a check sent by the Holy Spirit to let you know that your discernment is operating correctly. In all things seek first His kingdom and His righteousness and all these things will be given to you as well. (Matthew 6:33)
As far as the world is concerned, death is permanent. You will not come back as anything in another lie, you are dead. I heard a conversation on TV the other day and this person was saying that they were something else in another life and when they die in this life they will come back as something else. If I could have spoken to that person through the TV I would have told them what I am going to say now, when you die you die, you do not come back as anything.
There is some news that for some is fantastic, but for others not so great. Death is not permanent to our spirit. When we pass from this life on earth our spirit will be going to the place that our life on earth dictated. For those who chose to follow Jesus and accept Him as their Lord and Savior, their soul will enter the kingdom of heaven. For those who thought they had more time and did not accept Jesus or for those who believed that they would come back as something else, their soul will be lost forever and will enter into the kingdom of darkness.
I have never understood why people could be so blind to the fact that their life on this earth is really so short that there is not much time. It took me over 40 years to get a realization of life and death and for my money I have chosen life after death with Jesus. My testimony is, one day I reached the bottom of the barrel and I had nowhere to turn. Nothing else could go wrong because everything was a total disaster. Then came the day I walked into church and as the pastor spoke it was like God was speaking directly to me and there was no one else even in the building. The pastor gave an alter call and I did not walk up front, I ran. The importance of what the pastor said was weighing very heavy on my heart and I knew that if I died at that very moment my soul would go directly to hell and there would be no turning back. I made it down to the alter and surrendered my life to Jesus on the spot and have never looked back since.
God has given us a golden opportunity and if we choose not to take it we may not get another chance. I have said before that we never know when or how we are going to die and if we do not know Jesus as our Lord and Savior we will never get to see the kingdom of heaven. Jesus said in John 14:6, I am the way the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. Meaning, if you do not have a personal relationship with Jesus then you are just as lost as if you were the worst murderer in the world who has denied God.
You might not think about it or you may have and just haven’t acted on it, but it is a matter of life and death to have a relationship with Christ. Life is living in heaven for eternity and death is wishing that you could just stop existing because of the suffering in hell. There really is a heaven and a hell the bible tells us so and it also explains to us the differences. I know that there will be those who will read this and think that I have totally lost my mind because they can’t see God or their spirit, but let me tell those people, this is not a game this is very serious.
The bible says that we need faith. It says we need to have faith and with that faith anything will be possible for us. In Hebrews 11:1 the bible says that faith is the substance of things hopes for and the evidence of things unseen. Just because you can’t physically see God does not mean that He is not there. On the other hand, you can see God. Take a breath and watch your chest go up and down, that is God. Without Him you would not be able to do that. We breathe because God breathed life into us. So you can see God and if you will put your trust and faith in Him, He says that nothing will be impossible for you.
Today is the day to surrender because there may not be a tomorrow. Death could come and catch you totally by surprise and you thought you had more time. Remember death is only permanent to this world but to God there is eternal life after our physical death. Don’t wait because it could be too late. Choose today who you will serve but for me and my house we will serve the Lord (Joshua 24:15)
That Small Voice
Can you hear it? Are you listening really close? There it is again! I know that voice, I have heard it before and it has guided me when things were not going so well. Amazing, there it is again. Now that I have matured in the Lord that still small voice is speaking and it is coming more often. Can you hear that voice?
God is speaking to us actually twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, three hundred and sixty-five days a year. He never stops speaking to us and if we would really open our ears we would hear Him. If we could only put aside listening to the world we would hear His voice and then we would be truly blessed. We spend more time telling God that we can’t, and never once consider the fact that if we answered we not only would find that we can but we would find out there is so much more we could do.
God is speaking to us every time we pick up our bible, every time we say a prayer, every time we hear a message from church. God is speaking to us and like the example of Peter getting out of the boat and walking on water, if we keep our eyes on Jesus we can walk on water, and if we keep our ears listening for that voice of God there is nothing we can’t do. When God speaks, we become pastors, teachers, evangelists, prophets and so on and so on, we become.
You hear pastors and the like saying on a regular basis that they heard God speak to them, or I heard God say to me, or God said. Whatever the instance God is speaking, and it may not be in an audible voice but He is speaking. You may get this thought and you have no idea where it came from but somehow you know that it is right and then you realize it is God. It was God that put that thought in your head and He did it so that we might obey and follow His instructions. Sometimes God will use others to speak to us because we have a tendency to listen to people we respect i.e. a pastor or best friend, or some other person we respect.
However God uses to speak into our lives the fact remains He speaks to us. The scripture says, today, if you will hear His voice, harden not your heart. (Psalms 95) In other words, if you listen to what He has to say and not turn away you will be blessed beyond anything you could imagine.
There that voice is again. It says that He loves you and cares for you and will take you far beyond this world and into eternity. Open your ears and hear and then your life will truly begin. Everything will not be perfect and without problems, but God will show you things that will help you through whatever the problem is. It will perfect your faith and make you stronger. The voice of God will speak to your life and the comfort you gain will have you saying, without God I would never have made it.
Great things are coming your way and if you will listen and hear what He has to say you will never be the same again no never.
I have had a burning issue on my heart and that issue is sharing what is there. So many times we allow our desires are left to nothing because we don’t share with anyone or make it known what is actually on our hearts. In James 4:2 the bible says you do not have because you do not ask. Why is this, are we afraid of what people might say or are we afraid because we think the answer would be no? Whatever the reason is we need to surrender those thoughts and allow God to work in our lives.
To help you get started let me share with you a desire on my heart. Lately I have been under a lot of stress because of my efforts raising funds for our Philippines trip in November. As a pastor I understand what the bible has to say about trusting in God for everything and I keep using the excuse that I am human and I will fall. True, I am human and I will fall from time to time but that is no excuse for not doing what the bible says. With all of those thoughts on my mind, I watched Joel Osteen the other night and he said that we need to be positive and think positive if we want to receive from God what we are searching for.
That statement began to resonate inside of me and I realized that my stress was negative and not positive. God has called us to the Philippines and He has never let us down with our fund raising or meeting goals. You might ask what does that have to do with the desires of your heart? Well, I will tell you as you thought I might. The desire of my heart is to be like Jesus. To be positive in everything and to know that I know that I am what I speak. My desire is to be positive in every word that comes out of my mouth. When someone asks me if I am feeling good and though I may not, I am going to speak into existence good health. If someone asks me how my finances are, I am going to say that I have everything I need. I am going to speak into existence what it is regardless of what it may look like.
The desire on my heart is to have the Wisdom of Solomon and to be able to speak to every situation not only in my life but in others’ lives as well. I know that God called me to Prophecy and Healing that is exactly what I am going to do. I am going to call those things that are not as though they were. I will speak life into my life, your life, and thousands of others life’s as well.
Now you know one of the desires of my heart. It was not hard to share it and I know that by sharing it God will open the necessary doors for that desire to have life. I am in control of my life and I choose to have Jesus live my life as I am obedient to do what He has called me to do. I am going to speak life and not death, good and not bad, love and not hate. I am nothing special nor do I think because of what God has called me to do I have a step up. No, I am just like you and probably with more problems, but I know what God says in the bible and I am going to follow that bible letter by letter.
You have the power inside of you if you are a follower of God to speak life into your life. Get away from comments like, “Oh I can’t do that and start saying I can. Stop saying that everything around me is falling down and start saying I am a child of God and whatever I ask for in His name I shall have. Let others know your desires because you never know that person you tell may be the very person that God has chosen to help you fulfill that desire. There is no desire too small, too complicated, to foolish that God won’t help you through it. If you will speak positive and like I said call those things that are not as though they were, you will see a mighty change in your life in your health in your family and in everything that you put your hand to. You are a Joseph and everything that you touch turns to a blessing. Believe it and know that God is who He says He is. Speak life into your life and like I have already found, everything falls into place and the stress goes away.
The bible says in Matthew 7:7-8, ask and you shall receive, seek and you will find, knock and the door will be opened. “For ALL who asks receives, to ALL who seeks they will find and to ALL who knock the door will be opened” (paraphrase) Put your faith into action and open the doors to unbelievable blessings from God.
Are You Ready for Heaven?
First let me start with a short story to help you visualize being ready for heaven. It was five or six years ago when a very good friend of mine, Doc Tarter was tragically killed when a horse kicked him in the head. Doc loved God and did everything he could to make sure that other people knew God as well. Knowing that his name was written down in the Lambs book of life and that if anything ever happened to him he would be ushered into heaven, Doc continued on not fearing this world or what it would bring.
On the day Doc was killed, this is what I perceived happened. Doc was riding the horse when it went to bucking and acting up. He tried to control the horse but lost his balance and fell off the back of the horse. As he was falling the horse kicked out not meaning to hurt Doc in anyway and Doc was kicked directly in the head probably killing him instantly. This is what I think happened after that fatal kick. Doc hit the ground and then as he picked himself up and began to dust himself off he realized that he was not where he thought he was. I believe Doc’s words would be how did I get here (speaking of heaven)? Regardless of the fact Doc was immediately taken to heaven and the reason was he loved God and he knew Jesus as his personal savior.
How about you, are you certain that if you died today you would go directly into heaven? Do you know for sure that you are even saved? Doc did and it is Doc’s commitment to Jesus Christ that insured him of that fact. You never know what is going to happen to you or even when it is going to happen, but suddenly you are dusting yourself off and asking yourself a question, how did I get here? You could walk out of your house right now and by some fluke of nature get hit by lightning and killed. You could be getting ready to cross the street and as you walk off in the crosswalk, a car from behind hits and kills you and you never even knew it was coming. It is that uncertainty that you should be thinking about.
You have no idea when you are going to die and now is the time that you need to be reaching out to Jesus and asking Him into your life. It could possibly be that you could be dusting yourself off in a place you do not want to be, but because of you putting it off there was no alternative. You know the bible says that even on your last breath if you cry out to Jesus you will be saved (paraphrase), but how do you know you will even recognize that last breath? The car hit you and killed you instantly and you did not even have time to breath. If you did not have time to breath then you probably did not have time to say Jesus.
Why would anyone want to put off something that could get them into heaven and away from hell is beyond me, but people do it every day. They say, I have plenty of time to accept Jesus and right now I just want to live for myself and when I get the chance it will do that. Hell is full of people who said that and now for them it is too late and there will never be another chance. Are you one of those who just because everything is going good at this moment say I will wait? God has appointed our time to die and unfortunately we are not privy to that time. When it is our time to die we die and it does not make a difference if we know Jesus or not. God knows that there are those who will never accept Jesus as their Lord and Savior and He has also given us a free will to either accept Him or not.
For my money, I would rather know that when I die I will be with Jesus in heaven and definitely not in hell with the evil one. I made my choice a number of years ago and it has been a decision that I have never regretted. I have grown in the Lord and God has taken me places that I could never have dreamed of. He did not make me weak or wimpy because I accepted me, He has made me a mighty warrior with all of the resources of heaven on my side. Just because you accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior does not mean that you are physically another person. It does mean however that you realized that without God you were nothing and now your life has meaning.
Because of the death of my friend Doc there have been many who have received Jesus and there will be many more. Doc still lives on in our hearts and in our memories, but his story of how that fateful day he went from this earth to glory in heaven will live on forever. How about your, are you ready as Doc was or do you think you have time? Doc had no idea that on that day he would die and the very same thing applies to you. You have no idea and like the old saying goes, it is better to be safe than sorry. Accept Jesus today and you too will have the opportunity to meet my friend Doc in heaven and let him tell you the story. Time I believe is drawing closer to an end and it is my prayer that not a soul misses out though I know they will. You have that opportunity right now because if you are reading this you have heard the Word of God and that Word says repent and ask for forgiveness right now before it is too late. Accept Jesus and come and meet Doc Tarter. Accept Jesus and know that you know that when you die you will be with Him in paradise.
God loves you and so do I and my prayer is that if you don’t know Him you will accept Him. I love my friend Doc and I will see him again one day.
Like the woman with the issue of blood, we press in we press in. Like the blind man waiting patiently we press in through the storm. Then suddenly a touch from Heaven, Jesus came to rescue me. Then suddenly a touch from Heaven, Jesus came and set me free.
Can you imagine where the woman and the blind man would be if they had not continue to press in to Jesus? The woman would have had the same issue until her death. The blind man would never have seen again. But, it was what they knew in their spirit put there by God that was going to keep them seeking and pressing in to get the blessing from Jesus.
The woman with the issue of blood knew deep inside of herself that if she could only touch the hem of Jesus’ garment she would be healed and set free. She was pressing in and the more she pressed in the closer to Jesus she got until Bam she was there and she reached out and her fingers touched the cloak of Christ and instantly she was healed and the bleeding stopped. She pressed in and did not give up because of the crowd and received her healing.
The blind man knowing that Jesus was in the area continued to cry out and pressing in to get the attention of Jesus because in his spirit he knew that he would be healed. Against all of the odds and all of the people around him telling him to be quiet, the man pressed in and was healed and saw. For the first time in this man’s life he saw for the very first time because he was born blind. He pressed in and Bam his eyes were opened.
We can accomplish great and might things if we will only press in and seek what God has for us. Do you need healing? Then press in. Press in to touch the hem of His garment. Press in and continue to cry out and get the attention of God. Press in and never give up because when we do we will receive our miracle. We will receive the glory of God and the assurance that He is with us. Press in and never give up because what we receive the anointing of God and our lives will never be the same again. Press in and our healing will come and we will be whole again. Too many times we pray once and nothing happens so we give up and say well it was not God’s will for me to be healed or I will be this way as a witness. Watch what you say and don’t assume because God did not answer immediately that it is His will. We need to continue to press in and continue praying until God answers.
There are times in a person’s life that if they would continue to press in and pray, pray, pray we will see the hand of God manifested in our lives and we will see our healing. Pray Until Something Happens (PUSH). Continue to pray and press in and God will touch you. He heard your prayer the first time and maybe like the woman and the blind man He is requiring us to do something to make us obedient to Him. Not everything from God is handed to us immediately. Sometimes God asks us to do something not to put off our request but because we may need to learn something along the way and then He will answer our prayer.
All of us need to learn more about obedience to God and we need to go through those trials in order for us to accept and trust totally and completely on Him. We need to press in and not give up. We need to run the race to the end and not give up because at the end there is a prize unknown to man. A prize that far surpasses anything we could ever imagine or dream of. We will receive that prize if we don’t give up and we continue to press in. Reach out and touch the hem of Jesus’ garment and receive your healing. Cry out and keep getting louder and receive your sight from Him. Press in and don’t ever give up and receive the glory of God in your life. Press in and receive the Salvation and the assurance from God that your name is written down in the Lambs Book of Life. Press in and receive the peace of God in your life that will help you through. Press in, Press in, Press in and you will never be the same ever again and you will have a life unspeakable and full of glory.
Are you hoping for something in your life that you perceive to be a hopeless situation? Are you seeking a healing that maybe the doctors have told you is terminal and there is nothing they can do for you? Has there been a situation in your family that seems to be totally hopeless and unless God intervenes all is lost? If any of these or others you can think of are in your thoughts and mind, then I have news for you.
As I have stated a few times before there are conditions to receiving a miracle. The condition for a miracle is difficulty. Difficulty is why God gave doctors the knowledge they have. I think whether the doctor is a Christian or not, God has still given them the knowledge. A doctor has been given the knowledge to know how to cure a difficult situation. A miraculous thing seems to take place and we give the doctors praise and glory for what they have been able to accomplish, wrong but that is what we do. So, that is the first condition, the condition for a miracle is difficulty. God took a difficult situation and appointed a human being to provide that miracle.
Let’s look at the second and the most important of the conditions, the condition for a great miracle is impossibility. Impossibility happens when there is absolutely nothing any human can do to cure you or help you. Doctors tell you that you have cancer that is terminal and there is nothing they can do to save you. The doctors are 100% correct; they can do absolutely nothing to save you. The good news is, we serve a God of impossibility. Only God can save you. Only God can provide the miraculous healing.
The impossible miracle puts you in that hopeless state and it is in that state of mind that we need to believe in hope. Look at Abraham in Romans 4:18. The bible says, against all hope Abraham in hope believed and he became. The focus here is not on what Abraham became, the focus is on what Abraham did. Against all hope he in hope believed. That is the place we need to go in spite of our circumstance. We need to keep our faith and believe in Christ Jesus and the hope that we have will be increased and our miracle will take place.
You might say I have prayed and prayed for either my own healing or the healing of someone else and nothing has happened, can you explain that to me? My answer is no! I cannot answer that question because I am not God and therefore I have no input to what He does. God does things in His own way and in His own time. When you prayed you got God’s attention. The bible does not say that when you pray you will see the healing, it says, when you pray He will respond. Respond He does and maybe the healing is not a physical healing that is needed, it may be Spiritual. You may need to come to God and ask for forgiveness and receive Jesus as your Lord and Savior and prepare yourself to be in eternity with God. I really have no idea because like I said, I am not God.
Isaiah 55:8 puts it the best, for my ways are not your ways nor are my thoughts your thoughts declares the Lord. I know that God heals because I have witnessed miraculous healings and with that said I have witnessed no miracle and the person passes on. It would be my way to heal them and move on, but it is not God’s way. God is going to do what God is going to do and it will be in spite of what we say or do. What we really need to do is to put our Faith in action and not just in a time of desperation but in any time. We need to look at the hopeless situation and believe in hope that it will happen. Remember, against all hope Abraham in hope believed. Regardless of how things turn out we must continue to give God the Glory and the Praise.
When you find yourself in a place that you don’t know what to do and you are looking for a miracle, look to God first and foremost and put your faith in action and leave it in God’s hands. If you are looking for a miracle and you don’t know Jesus as your Lord and Savior, you should look to God for your salvation. It says in John 14:6, I am the way the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. Unless you have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ you will never see the kingdom of God. Your healing may only be receiving Jesus, but when you receive Him, you have received what God has for you and your name will be written down in the Lambs Book of Life. I am certain that you will receive your healing either here on this earth or in Heaven, but you will receive it. Either way it happens, it is a win-win situation. Either you get healed here on earth and receive Jesus as your Lord and Savior, or you get healed in Heaven, having already received Jesus as your Lord and Savior. Win-win no matter how you look at it.
So according to what I believe and my small knowledge of God, there really is no hopeless situation. There is only a trust and faith in Him to do what He is going to do. My hope is in you Lord and I know that I know you have our best interests at your heart and I will believe in you.
The decision time is now, you either receive Jesus or you reject Him. There is no middle ground here; it is totally black and white. Time is drawing short and Christ could return at any time. When that trumpet sounds, it will be too late. There are not second chances, no comments like I have been thinking about it. It is imperative that you know Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior or suffer the consequences of hell for eternity. The choice is yours and no one else can make that decision for you. Choose Jesus before it is too late. Choose Jesus now and watch the impossible happen in your life. Choose Jesus now and I can guarantee you will never be the same again. You will have the reassurance of the fact that when you pass from this life you will see the Glory of God.
God bless you and let someone know.
