The world is not moving in a great direction. Yes, the world is a mess in a hundred different ways every day. Most people don’t believe that it is possible to change the world.
But it can. How? The changes will not come from government, not from the economy or big business, not from science. The best group of people who are positioned to make a difference is Christians. How is this possible? It is simple but not easy.
We will change the world by behaving like Christians. There are over two billion Christians in the world and they have a tremendous influence.
Part of the problem is that Christians have blind spots. They don’t see things as they really are. They don’t see our marriage, our career, our business, our personal finances, our children’s school and even our own church as it really is. We still have biases and prejudices. Jesus wants to liberate us from our blind spots and to help us see things as they really are and to see ourselves as we really are.
We actually fool ourselves. We never admit to ourselves that we are greedy. We never say that we like money too much. Even stingy people think that they are generous. So we don’t see ourselves as we really are.
Left to our own devices, human beings are naturally vengeful. We are not normally slow to anger, kind and merciful. These attitudes are learned. God has a better wary of doing things: “For My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways.” Isaiah 55:8 The magic ingredient is the grace of God.
The Sermon on the Mount is probably the most important speech ever given. Jesus turned the world upside down when He spoke about His way. How will I know when I am embracing God’s ways more? Here is the litmus test: when you become more focused on other people rather than yourself. Nothing highlights the differences between Christians and others like forgiveness and generosity for others.
THE EVIL WE DO
Why do Christians seem to have a problem to follow God’s way? Paul wrote, “For I do not do the good I want to do, but the evil I do not want to do—this I keep on doing.”Romans 7:19 It seems that people are sinful and they turn their backs on God. Here is typical thinking: I know I am capable of incredible good, yet the right path seems too hard and sometimes I am too selfish and I want what I want.
God never intended for us to suffer. Suffering and death are a direct result of global sin. Sin always leads to slavery of one kind or another. Sin is more than just bad behavior. It is a rejection of God; it puts obstacles between us and Him.
If we don’t talk about sin and understand how it affects our lives, we cannot begin to solve our problems. Are not the dominant problems in our lives not related to sin? So let’s talk about the disease and let’s not talk about the symptoms. All the world’s biggest problems are just symptoms.
Yes, we are sinners and sinners need a Savior. It isn’t that God has abandoned us but rather that we have abandoned God, when trying to deal with sin.
WE MUST SHOW OUR LIGHT.
“You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.” Matthew 5:14-16
To let this power lie dormant within us is indeed unpardonable.
Jesus said that the same power that was in Him could be in us: “I am going to send you what my Father has promised; but stay in the city until you have been clothed with power from on high.” Luke 24:49 He stated that we should do the works that He did: “whoever believes in Me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these” John 14:12
He told us that we should go into all the world, and not only preach the gospel , but show forth the power of the gospel by healing: “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation. Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned. And these signs will accompany those who believe: In My name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues; they will pick up snakes with their hands; and when they drink deadly poison, it will not hurt them at all; they will place their hands on sick people, and they will get well.” Mark 16: 15-18
When you know that you are on an assignment for God, He will preserve you so that you learn to have confidence in Him. You will not want to do anything without the hand of the Lord hovering over you.
When you look back over your life, you are able to see the fingerprints of God all along the way. You can see how God preserved you when you weren’t even paying attention. He was working out an assignment through his manifold wisdom.
JESUS WISHES TO SPEAK TO YOU.
The Light who Came into the World
“I am Jesus risen from the dead, I love you.
I am alive never to die again. I am risen with all power as your Savior and friend. I know you all by name and I love you for I died for you. I desire the salvation of every person on earth.
You, too, My brother and sister, will rise with a similar body if you follow Me.
Before My sacrifice on the cross, the world was in darkness under the yoke of the devil. People could not have their sins forgiven and they could not go to heaven.
I am the light who came into the world to defeat Satan and rescue the human race from his clutches. I broke his power by My Passion, Death and Resurrection and since then he can only face death.
I was the only one who could defeat Satan and now you too can do so if you believe in Me and cooperate with Me. With the power of grace, you can destroy his hold on you.
There are still many people who do not believe in Me in the world. These too must come to believe. You who are My follower, I urge you to be My witnesses to all your neighbors and friends.
As I conquered suffering and death, you too, united with me, can overcome all obstacles such as sickness, rejection, loneliness and even death and reach that joy that never ends.
My people, you are faced with life or death, salvation or damnation. It is for you to decide for or against Me. If you do nothing then you have decided against Me. I am giving you the graces you need, do not reject this gift of mine. I want you to be My friend, My close friend. Reject the world and the devil, and come follow Me. Now is the acceptable time. 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.
PRINT AND FOLD LIKE A TENT:
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.
The Old Testament indicates another 40 astonishing predictions.
Christianity experiences stunning growth—from approximately 3.8 million adherents in China in 1956 to an estimated 87 to 100 million Christians today.
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.
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.
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.
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.
