Getting Answered Prayers

24 May

How many people today even in churches appear to be avoiding the Truth?
Which is really in essence condemning something before they have the opportunity to fully investigate the facts and in our case investigate the facts through the lens of the Holy Bible.
For example trying to explain to someone who is having health issues that the Bible tells us there is most likely a connection to some generational sins that have not been repented and dealt of, or some individual sins like entertaining a spirit of bitterness and fear, which is opposite faith and for whatsoever is not of faith is sin. (Romans 14:23)

We are actually just a bunch of chemicals supernaturally strung together as the Lord created us in this life. We also understand now that our thought life has a great deal to do with our overall well being. This is not mind over matter, it is simply obeying the Word of God. That medical research and science has confirmed 80% to 95% of all the illnesses that plague us today are a direct result of our thought life. Keeping in mind this is the reason the Lord told us all along to take every thought captive to Christ, because he loves us and wants us to understand what we think about affects us not just emotionally but physically. ( 2 Corinthians 10:5)

How often have we tried to explain what the Lord has said about blessings and curses to someone who has been programmed to believe the report of their doctor instead of the report of the Lord? “As a man thinketh so he is.”
Ignorance is not a blessing and we are encouraged of the Lord to be like the Berean’s and search the Scriptures to see whether these things be so.
Acts 17:11,” These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.”
I am at times perplexed how some people will tell me they believe God still heals today, but then convey the idea that he is NOT apparently interested in healing them!  Where would such a thought as that come from? Considering not every thought you have is your own.
Rather then studying the Holy Bible to research what the Lord actually tells us about receiving healing and restoration they will look at their present situation and its as a spirit of depression and self -pity overrides and clouds their perceptions and understanding. They don’t seem to be able see and understand you must believe it to receive it without entertaining the spirit of doubt and unbelief. It appears most people think when they see it they will believe it. The Lord says believe it first to see it.
May I remind you the Lord said in Matthew 21: 21,” Jesus answered and said unto them, Verily I say unto you, If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done.
22 And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.”
This is amazingly good news because the Lord Jesus has power to do whatsoever he said, and he promises the same sort of power to all true believers. For example how healing miracles were performed by the early church apostles and disciples? Just as today, people like the 70 disciples the Lord Jesus sent out two by two who came back reporting how the spirits had to obey them in Jesus name. Just ordinary people like us today filled with faith and supernatural power and baptised in the Holy Ghost. For example we read about Stephen in Acts 6:8,” And Stephen, full of faith and power, did great wonders and miracles among the people.”
As we read in the harmony of Scripture here in Mark 11:22,” And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God.
23 For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.
24 Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.
25 And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.
26 But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive your trespasses.”
So there is some things to consider here, if we don’t deal with the offenses first and forgive everyone including yourself that can hinder your prayers and ability to believe so you can have your prayers answered.
John 15:7,” If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.”
Now clearly this is a promise, the Lord tells us “ask what ye will and the Lord shall make it happen. So could we say that getting answered prayers is really up to meeting the conditions and requirements of the Lord. In other words it is up to you as a child of God as to what you want and what you need. A true believer can clearly get what they want as well as what they need. Because we ought to want what the Lord wants.

What you think with your mind changes your brain and body chemistry.
It’s really more about your attitude and not your DNA that determines your perceptions and much of the quality of the life you live. Best to live a life that is glorifying to Christ. Hebrews 13:15,”By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of [our] lips giving thanks to his name.”

I pray the Lord’s supernatural peace, healing, provision and protection cover you always with oceans of Agape love in the almighty name of Jesus/Yeshua!

The Word Today is Confused

12 May

Most of the world is very confused today and many don’t study the Holy Bible to understand, because if they did they certainly overcome the confusion. The Atheist want to challenge us and argue that the ancient mystery religions are much older than Christianity, because apparently they simply don’t understand that the Old Testament is also part of Christianity. There is so much misinformation and disinformation purposely put out in the world today, however we read in 1 Corinthians 14:33,” For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.” So clearly the devil has made a great effort to confuse the facts and lead as many astray as he can, that today many colleges are now filled with professors teaching erroneous theories as facts, as they have done with things like evolution and then claim Christianity stole its ideas from the ancient Egyptians mystery religions. With such absurd claims as the Biblical accounts of Jesus were simply a plagiarizations of the Egyptian Sun-god Horus. So sorry to disappoint the Atheist once again, however Horus was NOT crucified, was NOT buried for 3 days, and thus, was NOT resurrected! The sources of these new age accounts are simply wrong and have birthed all sorts of apologetic debates at universities today.

So here we are watching things unfolding as the Lord said would happen, and I find it rather curious that some studies show that 87 percent of Americans are supposedly professing Christians and yet we are still dealing with abortion on demand; we have no-fault divorces available, we have more pornography and perversions then ever before in film, television and internet; we have the alternative lifestyles and its agenda that appears to be attacking the nation from every angle. So marriage now can be between three or more people of the same sex, or even people and animals. What is next people married to Nehilim or robots? Even adultery is now apparently considered normal by mainstream; we have all of these things going on like dark shadows that have fallen across the nation and we have allowed this by keeping quiet and not being doers of the Word. ( James 1:22)
We have allowed demonic ideologies to take hold of our universities and our public school systems whilst the church for the most part sits silently and just builds bigger seeker friendly churches where nothing much supernatural is happening according to places like Mark 16:15-20. By the way there are no seeker friendly messages anywhere to be found in the entire Holy Bible so who do think has encouraged such churches to exist today? If this is really your best life now, what shall your life in the next world be?

These are unprecedented times in which we live, providing you are understanding the ancient Biblical prophecy unfolding before us as true Spirit- Filled believers.
All these interesting things going on round the world today can also be rather distracting as we carry on traveling on this narrow path of Holiness. There is so much information, speculation and disinformation we have bombarding us each day. Wars, rumours of wars, earthquakes, famines, false prophets, apostasy in the tickle my ear popular churches, who are ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth because they deny the power of the Holy Spirit today. Which may also be why you never see anyone healed and delivered in those sorts of places which is what the Lord Jesus/Yeshua called His church to do as the church.
There are incredible technological advances we are becoming aware of that sound like total science fiction today. The reality of the transhumism movement, along with the devils lying signs and wonders, the UFO manifestations, orbs, gene slicing and cloning, laboratories carrying out experiments for the pharmaceutical industry on half human/half animal, perhaps like as in the days of Noah I dare say. People starting to uncover the idea of shadow governments. And yet as Christians one things is crystal clear to me, and that is we have many people walking about who need to make a solid connection with the Lord Jesus/Yeshua. They need healing and restoration, they need miracles to happen in their life, they need a spiritual encounter with the eternal living Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth. Considering we could have been born at any other time in all of history, however the Lord foresaw you before the world was made and planned for you to be here for such a time as this to help share the Kingdom of God and Christ’s awesome love.
Let me remind you of this Luke 21:28,” And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.”
I pray the Lord’s supernatural peace, healing, provision and protection cover you always with oceans of Agape love in the almighty name of Jesus/Yeshua!

Celebrating Outstanding Mothers This Day

11 May

Mary the Mother of Jesus Christ of Nazareth was certainly someone we should study as an example of motherhood. What an amazing women and mother, what an amazing person of spiritual integrity.

We read in Luke 1:30,” And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God.” How did she find favour with God unless she was obeying Him? Surely Mary was a person who wanted to stay in the presence of the Lord.

Later in this chapter we read in Luke 1:46,” And Mary said, My soul doth magnify the Lord, 47 And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour.” Obviously Mary was woman who had an intimate relationship with Papa God. She understood the Lord our God is all about relationships.

Could we say it this way, that an outstanding mother is some one who has a personal and intimate relationship with the Lord?
Another thing that is necessary would be that she had a proper relationship with her family.
Clearly Mary supported her husband Joseph’s leadership. I rather doubt she was telling him which way the donkey should go and how they just missed the turn as they traveled about. She probably never contradicted his ideas and opinions in front of the children, or argued with him. Hint, hint, nudge, nudge say no more.
The Holy Bible indicates Mary taught all her children to honour Papa God in all things. You may recall the story where Jesus as a child went missing for 3 days and Joseph and Mary are frantically looking for him and then find him teaching and amazing all the leadership in the temple.
In Luke 2:49,” And he said unto them, How is it that ye sought me? wist ye not that I must be about my Father’s business?
50And they understood not the saying which he spake unto them.
51And he went down with them, and came to Nazareth, and was subject unto them: but his mother kept all these sayings in her heart.” We see that Mary understood something here no one else was really able to understand at this point, or at this level because she had a direct encounter with the Holy Ghost and knew who her son Jesus really was. Let me continue sharing here from verse
52,”And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favour with God and man.”
Jesus Christ of Nazareth was divine, but laid aside and limited his divinity in his days here in the flesh. So He could be an example for us of a sinless man, overcoming sin and defeating Satan!
He proved to us that the same Holy Spirit anointing Him was available to us, and that we are to do these same works in His name and in His authority. Because if Jesus did all these healing and miracles because He was God, then how does He expect believers to do them?  However, if He did them through the works of the Holy Spirit then He has every right to expect us as His true believers and disciples to do them as well because He promised us we could and should. I submit to you for your consideration John 14:12,”Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.”
Because besides inheriting your parents genes, you also have been preprogrammed by Papa God to accomplish good things. Before you were even in your mother’s womb Papa God said He knew you and had a good plan for your life.
Even though the devil has come to try and mess those plans up, they are still good plans. Those good plans are built into our DNA and recent scientific studies and research show that our thoughts can even effect those genes and alter them. Which is where freedom of choice comes in, only you can decide what you will think about? We read in 2 Corinthians 10:5,” Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;”
Taking every thought and examining it against the Word of God all 30.000 to 70.000 a day. Try and imagine the good things God has for you instead of what the devil gives you to imagine.
Keeping in mind that God created us and so we don’t really come from our mothers, but rather through our mothers.
So there are no real excuses here, nothing your parents did or did not do can really hold us back. It may make things a wee bit harder but still let us not forget who really made us in His likeness and image.
Yes its true the sins of the parents can effect you, if your dad was a raging alcoholic you may have a predisposition to become one yourself. If your parents were poor and lived in poverty you will have to overcome some obstacles as well. But again we have been given freedom of choice and we are created by God Almighty who wants us to succeed. Before anyone gave legal rights and brought curses into your family line, God put a blessing on you. Papa God equipped each of us with certain gifts and talents, and with His favour.
As I stated in my book, What Was I Thinking? If 80 to 95% of all sickness and diseases, and all sorts of problems of all manner are really spiritually based and activated in our thought life, then it makes sense to take each thought and examine it against the Word of God to walk in 80% to 95% blessings and health.
Because we have all been given these spiritual genes as well, just like we all have a spark of faith, and they are activated as we line ourselves up with the Word of God. That is where faith comes in, because without faith it is impossible to please the Lord. (Hebrew 11:6)
We read in Romans 12:3,” For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think [of himself] more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.”
Always remember you control your brain, your brain does not control you and you only need the faith of a mustard seed for the Lord to move a mountain in your life.
We read in Mark 11:22,” And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God.
23 For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.
24 Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.” So be careful what you think and say and do and live your life to be glorifying to Christ. I pray the Lord’s supernatural peace, healing, provision and protection cover you always with oceans of Agape love in the almighty name of Jesus/Yeshua!
