SEEING JESUS

Seeing Jesus is what Christianity is all about. In its purist form, it is nothing more than imitating Him whom we see.  To be more specific, you must actually experience Jesus in your life.

You may say that this is abnormal and almost unbelievable. Two billion Christians would have something to say about your thought process.

So maybe you are acting out of imperfect knowledge on the subject. So start with a little research:

It is one thing to talk about Jesus and it is an entirely different thing to experience Him. That’s where you come in. There is a lot of blogs on this site about experiencing God. So be smart and do your research. Don’t go through life thinking that you have all the answers. Incidentally, that is called pride, one of the capital sins, if you haven’t already identified it. You simply only have partial knowledge if that.

SEEING JESUS

Maybe there is a psychological influence, but that doesn’t explain why Christianity provides a totally new source of power for living. When one puts one’s trust in Christ, one’s life begins to change.

You will read about testimonies that illustrate world changing personal experiences. You have to ask yourself how many other people have had the same experiences. Generally Christians have the same essential experience, say similar things, and feel the same way. The underlining reason is that these Christians have been saved by the same God.

The strongest rational for Christians to believe Christianity is on the basis of their experience (even though there are many people who have not had experiences of the Christian God). You only have to hear testimonies from real people who experienced God directing or speaking to them during their lifetime.

UNIQUE REVELATION OF JESUS CHRIST

Some of us have a lot of questions: Does God answer prayers? Does He heal us interiorly? Is He unconditionally good and loving? Does He inspire and guide us? Continue reading SEEING JESUS

HOW TO BE TRUE TO YOURSELF!

LACK OF BELIEF IN YOURSELF

Failures need not signify the end of anything. There are different ways to look at failure. If we believe deeply enough in life and we believe in God, a failure in one area may open up an opportunity somewhere else. Those who succeed in life are the ones who refuse to be conditioned

BE TRUE TO YOURSELF

BE TRUE TO YOURSELF!

Be true to yourself! Imagine your universe in its majesty, order, power and beauty; when we study the earth’s skies, mountains, oceans, valleys and tides, and when we analyze the human body and mind: how they are formed and their complexities, is it not natural to conclude that a great Intelligence is responsible for it all?

Hand of God

Only when you keep calling for God’s help, as a child cries for help from mom or dad… Only when you learn to approach God as a little child… will you begun to understand…  So great, yet so tender.  So powerful, yet so gentle.

Hand of God NASAHand of God NASA

You hold the universe in Your hands.You hold me, a child on Your knee. Please, Lord, keep hold of me.

This will give you great hope:  Because Jesus says, “Let the little children come to me, don’t stop them. It’s to such as these that the kingdom of God belongs.” Matthew 19:14 And “truly I tell you–whoever doesn’t receive the kingdom of God as a little child will never enter it.”

YOU ARE INCAPABLE OF FIXING YOUR OWN LIFE

Only when you begin to realize and admit to God and yourself that you are incapable of fixing your life on your own…

Who God is in His Essence, no one will fathom, neither the mind of Angels nor of man. Get to know God by contemplating His attributes: His holiness; His justice; and the third one is His love and mercy. It unites the creature with the Creator.

The Bible tells us that God says when you converse with Him in the depths of your heart, every single grace comes to you through prayer. A sinful soul, plunged in sins, must pray so that it might rise again.  If we do not persevere in such prayer, we frustrate what the Lord wanted to do through us or within us.

JESUS WISHES TO SPEAK TO YOU.

BE TRUE TO YOURSELF!

   A War at the Center of Each Person

“I love you.

There is often a war at the center of each person. The war is between Me and the spirits of the world. The fight is between a spirit of slavery and the freedom I bring.

My coming into the world brought a new light into the world. I came to fight against the darkness. If you believe in Me the light is shining in you and I live in your heart.

I wish to chase away all the darkness of your heart and I will accomplish this the more you submit to Me.

Do not compromise with the spirits of the world but be completely submitted to Me. Do not give in to despair, doubt, anger or lust, for these are the ways that the spirits of the world destroys My light in you. Do not give these evil spirits an opening by indulging in these temptations.

Instead you need to come to prayer to be strengthened and to grow in My love. I have defeated the evil one on the cross and I will defeat him in you if you remain with Me. You shall be free and I will give you My peace. I love you.”

The above messages came to Father Melvin Doucette:

Fr. Melvin Doucette was ordained to the priesthood on and joined the Missionaries of Africa for 29 years in Africa. In contemplative prayer every morning, Fr. Doucette receives by interior locution “messages from heaven” to share with the public.

ASTONISHING PREDICTIONS

God divinely inspired the BIBLE . How do we know? Each of eight accurate predictions  show a high probability mathematically. The probability of one individual fulfilling eight prophecies have odds of 1 in 10 17  (1 in 100,000,000,000,000,000). Jesus Christ fulfilled all prophecies, therefore the Bible MUST BE TRUE. 

DIVINE OR HUMAN CALIPHS

The Old Testament indicates another 40 astonishing predictions.

CHINA DECEASED RELATIVES

Christianity experiences stunning growth—from approximately 3.8 million adherents in China in 1956 to an estimated 87 to 100 million Christians today.

CHINA AND THE HOLY SPIRIT

In the end, one Christian conversion will benefit the whole family.  The gifts of the Holy Spirit of healing and deliverance will help the whole family. A prayer of deliverance of evil spirits will leave any member of the family with a complete sense of peace immediately. A prayer of healing from a Christian disciple produces 80% healing. The remaining healing comes from continued prayer of praise and thanksgiving until all the healing is complete. This healing comes from the Holy Spirit through the power in the Name of Jesus Christ.  No other god or deity or doctor uses this power. This proves the TRUTH OF CHRISTIANITY. 

Christianity and Hinduism Differences

BILLIONS OF CHRISTIANS CAN’ T ALL BE WRONG!

Christianity is not a philosophy, but it is  a relationship with God, your Creator,  in Christ TODAY. It is not knowledge of abstract principles.  How do we know this? Healing takes place TODAY in the Name of Jesus Christ. 

GOD’S HEALING ASSURED

 HEALING?

 Many Christian disciples use the gift of healing.  They also use deliverance to deliver away evil spirits influencing people. These evil spirits cause depression, addictions and illness through all forms of stress.  Only the Name of Jesus Christ makes healing and deliverance possible.Chinese Religion God

AN EXPERIMENT OF GOD’S TOUCH

HOW IS JESUS STILL ALIVE TODAY?

Jesus is alive today! He heals today (through His followers) and in many cases it is realized immediately. How else can you explain the explosion of Christianity, the world’s largest religion, on earth: 2.2 billion adherents, nearly a third (31 percent) of all 6.9 billion people on Earth. 

Christians know and feel His Presence; they communicate with Him personally; Christian prayers are always answered.

This author has been given the Gift of Healing only because he is a Christian Lay Missionary, who travels  two to three places every year. On his last trip to Columbia he successfully transferred his Gift to his Spanish translators, who were able to heal as he did. He has healed Muslims to their great surprise.

He also delivers away evil spirits along with their healing. All those who are delivered from evil spirits feel a complete physical  sense of peace.

DREAMS AND VISIONS

God can give a message to those non-Christians to change their heart.  God knows faith will be developed eventually. God will come to you in the form of dreams or visions. So be sensitive to any dreams or visions, when you ask God for it earnestly.

AMAZING BIBLE HISTORY

 OLD TESTAMENT HISTORY

God gradually reveals Himself as what we need to know. He does this by selecting one small tribe out of all the nations on earth. He has chosen them to be His own people. He has given them a land, a law and temple in which they are to worship Him. They are to learn who He is and how to live in communion with Him. Of course, they fail Him repeatedly and the BIBLE history of the Old Testament is filled with stories of these failures. Yet, He continually refashions the relationship and rebuilds this communion. They eventually begin to see more clearly His awesome faithfulness and love.

AMAZING BIBLE HISTORY

GOD ACTS IN HISTORY TO ATTAIN HIS PURPOSE.

All of the sacred history of Israel occurs in the full history of the ancient world. This is not a fairy tale: God acts in history and space to attain His purpose. The Jewish people had lived under a succession of foreign empires for centuries. The Jews finally realized that their little kingdom would never be restored without God and His graces. Ironically the Jews are still waiting for God to reveal Himself.

The most interesting development in the history of the Bible is observing how God has protected and guided the small kingdom of Judea starting from 2000 BC. He knew that Jesus Christ was to be born in a small town in Bethlehem in 4 BC.  In Micah 5:2 (750-686 BC), there is a prophecy that reveals that Bethlehem would be the birthplace of the Messiah: “But you, Bethlehem, though you are small among the clans of Judah, out of you will come for me one who will be ruler over Israel, whose origins are from of old, from ancient times.”

After 2000 years, the Bible has been translated into 1120 languages and dialects. We look at the Bible as a historical document, and evaluate its validity from unbiased grounds. Many of the people, places, and things mentioned in the Bible can indeed be verified 100% through modern day archeology.

Who ever heard of the Philistines, the Assyrians, the Medes or the Seleucids, and where do we read about the great defeat of Pharaoh’s army in the annals of Ancient Egypt?

THE BIG QUESTION

TIME FOR THE BIG QUESTION

The period when young people are especially open to existential and thus religious questions happen between the ages of 18 to 20. This is the time of the Big Question.

DIVINE DISCONTENT

The restless heart that God has made for Himself is not only restless until it gets to God; it’s restless until it rests in God. As I run with God, I grow younger and younger and my strength increases.

When persons in conscience have the courage to face the more serious questions of human existence-particularly questions related to the purpose of life, to suffering and to dying-they come to the same realization of St. Augustine: You have made us for yourself, O Lord, and our hearts are restless until they rest in Thee“: excerpt from  Confessions “All are yours, and you are Christ’s, and Christ is God’s”   1 Corinthians 3: 22 or, the world or life or death or the present or the future—all are yours if you wish.

MEANING OF LIFE: THE BIG PICTURE

We really have to have a sense of the Big Picture of how it all fits into the deeper questions of ultimate purpose and meaning of life. We need wisdom to know what it is all about.

We need to find a purpose for our lives, a reason for getting up in the morning. Just as we must find meaning in each of life’s events, so we must find the purpose to live.

big picture

We have been given an intellect and a free will. We are made to know the truth and to seek the known good of things. Then we are able to spur ourselves into action to achieve that good. God is the good to which we are striving and the happiness for which our Creator has made us.

IS GOD HIDING?

 IS GOD HIDING?

Why doesn’t He give everyone more tangible and accessible proof of existence  of God? Why does His mysterious strategy seem to be that of playing hide-and-seek with His creatures? Why is God hiding?

god proof

Why isn’t there more concrete proof of God’s existence? Why does He seem to hide Himself, almost playing with His creation? Shouldn’t it all be much simpler? Shouldn’t His existence be obvious?

God’s self-revelation comes about in a special way by his “becoming man“: the revelation of the invisible God in the visible humanity of Christ.

Even the day before the Passion the apostles asked Christ: “Show us the Father” John 14:8. His response remains fundamental: “How can you say, ‘Show us the Father’? Do you not believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in Me?  — or else, believe because of the works themselves….The Father and I are oneJohn 14:9-11; 10:30.

God’s Word

We are not worried about your behavior. It is more important to change your beliefs about who God is and who you are in Christ. Some don’t understand the dramatic changes which occur in themselves the moment they trust in God. Because you are in Christ, every one of these characteristics are true of you:

I am an heir of God since I am a son (daughter) of God.                                                                                                                                                       Galatians 4:6,7

I am a fellow citizen with the rest of God’s family.      Ephesians 2:19

I am chosen of God, holy and dearly loved.                     Colossians 3:12

I am member of the chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for God’s own possession.                                             1 Peter 2:9,10

 I am born of God, and the evil one — the devil– cannot touch me.                                                                                                                                      1 John 5:18

I have received the Spirit of God into my life that I might know the things freely given to me by God.                                   1 Corinthians 2:12 

Since I have died, I no longer live for myself, but for Christ.                                                                                                                                2 Corinthians 5:14,15

I have been crucified with Christ, and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me. The life I am now living is Christ’s life.                                                                                                                                                Galatians 2:20

EXPERIENCING GOD

 Experiencing God

When you make adjustments and obey, you come to know God by experiencing Him. Experiencing God involves obedience and a love relationship.

Experiencing God
Knowing and Doing the Will of God  by Henry Blackaby

1. God is always at work around us.

 “And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.”                          John 17:3

Deep within the hearts of every believer are a desire and a need to commune with God. There is a world of difference between knowing something is true in your head and experiencing the reality in your life. Many church goers hear about God, but they do not have a personal, dynamic, growing relationship with God. They never hear His voice; they have no idea what God’s Will is. They have no sense of divine purpose for their lives. They may know a lot about God, but they really don’t know Him.

We either know God is all-powerful or we don’t really trust in His power. It is one thing to believe in God’s power; it is quite another to live your life in obedient response to an all-powerful God.

“Blessed is the people that know the joyful sound: they shall walk, O Lord, in the light of Thy countenance. In Thy name shall they rejoice all the day: and in Thy righteousness shall they be exalted.”                                                                                                                          Psalm 89:15,16

There will be times when you do not comprehend why He allows certain things to occur, and that is to be expected. He sees the eternal ramifications; we don’t. We must learn to praise God always for everything even the seemingly bad things in our life.

God’s Will is always best! God is all-powerful. His directions are always right. He can enable you to accomplish His Will. We can trust that God Will always gives His best. If you really believe God is love, you will also accept that His will is always best.

 He said, “Always remember this song I have taught you today. And let it be a warning that you must teach your children to obey everything written in The Book of God’s Law. The Law isn’t empty words. It can give you a long life in the land that you are going to take.”                                                                                    Deuteronomy 32:46,47

God does not want you to miss out on the fullness of life. God’s instructions do not restrict; they free you. God’s purpose is that you prosper and live.

God sees beyond our current limitations and is constantly leading us to grow into the person He knows we can become. He knows our future.

 2. God pursues a continuing love relationship with you.

Why Pray?

WHY PRAY?
Why Pray

God wills us to pray in order to develop an incredible fellowship with Him. In fact, we are all wired for this. Why pray? As  St. Augustine once said, “You have made us for Yourself; and our hearts are restless until they find their rest in you.

The vast company of faithful in other world religions testify that prayer makes a tremendous difference in one’s life. Most of us cannot function either well  or long without prayer.Why Pray

Contemporary man has rediscovered the sacred, even if he does not always know how to identify it. Is man truly capable of knowing something beyond what he sees with his eyes or hears with his ears?

Man recognizes himself as an ethical being, capable of acting according to criteria of good and evil, and not only those of profit and pleasure. He also recognizes himself as a spiritual being, capable of putting himself in contact with God.  

Prayer is the first verification of such a reality. That is how a conversation begins with your Creator.

 Of course, there are those who say “I believe in Jesus Christ”, but they don’t affect the way they live. The answer is not that we now have to add hard work to our faith; rather, we haven’t truly understood or believed in Jesus at all.

prayer

Try reading Psalm 23 for three weeks. It begins with, “The Lord is my Shepherd… ” and ends with, “I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.” You will notice the difference. This is a prayer of affirmation — not a prayer of petition, asking for favors. It will move you so much, that you will want to make it part of your daily spiritual life from now on.
