“If you were to die tonight, and “St Peter” or “Elijah” or “Mohamed” was at the “Pearly Gates of Heaven” and asked you, ’Why should God let you into His Kingdom?’ – what would you say?”
   1) What would your own personal answer be?
   2) What do you think the answer would be from a true believing Christian


     a) I am not perfect, but in all honesty, I think I’m a good person.
    b) I sincerely try to keep the 10 commandments,
    c) I always try to do my best ( – although I sometimes fail)
    d) I know I am a good person ( – and at least better than one of my neighbors !)

The answers assume that if a person rates high enough on a divine “scale of goodness”, then that person SHOULD get into “heaven” based on their performance (or merit). The answers from people in other religions have a lot in common with these same answers.

Faith and fear are opposed to each other. Cancer patients are fearful. Fear is not so much in the threat as our negative reaction to it. We end up being afraid of being afraid.

Fear does not come from God. “There is no fear in love… the one who fears is not perfect in love. “Perfect love casts out fear.”                                                                                                                                        1 John 4:18

We should fill our mind with strong faith affirmations. This is not simply “positive thinking” or “mind over matter”.  We actually draw on the promises of God by believing with the sort of faith that does not doubt.



Love casts out fear. Since I came to love God with my whole being and with all the strength of my heart, fear has left me. Even if I were to hear the most terrifying things about God’s justice, I would not fear Him at all, because I have come to know Him well. 

God is love, and His Spirit is peace. I see now that my deeds which have flowed from love are more perfect than those which I have done out of fear. I have placed my trust in God and fear nothing. I have given myself over to His holy will; let Him do with me as He wishes, and I will still love Him.                                                          Diary 589


While the Bible gives us some clues, the 20th century mystic St. Faustina received a particularly vivid vision, which she recorded in her diary. The messages include details of heaven, hell and spiritual warfare.


Great love can change small things into great ones, and it is only love which lends value to our actions. I am never so happy as when I suffer for Jesus, whom I love with every beat of my heart. Once when I was suffering greatly, I left my work and escaped to Jesus and asked Him to give me His strength. After a very short prayer I returned to my work filled with enthusiasm and joy.             Diary 303 Continue reading LOVE CASTS OUT FEAR 2

You Will Never Face the Future Alone.

How worthwhile are you? You are infinitely valuable to God. First, God created you. Second, Jesus died for you. Third, he puts his Spirit within you. Fourth, he wants you to be with him forever in eternity. That’s how valuable you are to God. You are infinitely valuable to God.

Face Future Trust

There is nothing to fear when you know God is near. On your own you might drown, but God has said, “I will never abandon you or leave you” Hebrews 13:5 Some of you feel alone right now. You may feel it, but you’re not! You’re not alone. God sees what you’re going through. God cares about what you’re going through. God’s going through that situation with you, and He will help you out if you trust Him.

Face Future Trust

The ultimate test of faith is not how loudly you praise God in happy times but how deeply you trust him in dark times.Face Future Trust Continue reading NEVER FACE THE FUTURE ALONE 2

Sickness doesn’t come from God. Jesus destroys the works of the devil, so I can live free of sickness and disease!

Jesus healed everyone who came to Him in faith. “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever” Hebrews 13:8, so I come to Him in faith, knowing He will heal me too!


I will not allow doubt and unbelief to keep me from receiving from God.

The main purpose of my life is to minister to the Lord, putting my hand to work He gives me to do. I thank God for healing me, that I might be effective and unhindered by pain, sickness and disease.

When I ask for healing, I am not forcing God’s hand. Healing me is His idea! He wants me to be healed. Healing comes to me in my “benefits package”.

I don’t deny my symptoms, but I don’t dwell on them.  I don’t check to see if my symptoms are gone or if anything in my body has changed. Symptoms may still be affecting my body, but the truth is that I am healed. I don’t allow the devil’s doubt and unbelief to keep me from my healing.


Faith is the belief that God is good. Faith is not a mystical experience or a voice in the wilderness. It is a choice to believe that the One who made it all, hasn’t left it all and that He still sends light into our shadows and responds to our gestures of faith.

So what does faith have to do with our daily existence? It has everything to do with it. Our task on this earth is to choose our eternal home. You can choose the wrong career or the wrong house and you will survive. But, there is one choice that must be made correctly and that is you eternal destiny.

“I am fully persuaded that what God has promised, He is able to do.”                                                                                                                Romans 4:21

Faith builds up in me when I hear and hear the Word. I hear the Word of God , and hearing produces faith in me. The Holy Spirit opens the mysteries of the Scriptures to you, revealing the life and the ways of God to you. God’s light and life will shine in you, so much so that others will notice.

This happens even as I face adverse circumstances or painful symptoms. My faith releases His healing power in my life. My faith and His power make me whole.


The servant was healed because the centurion believed the words that Jesus spoke. You will be healed because you believe God’s healing promises will come to pass.

“The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid.”                       Hebrews 13: 6

One of the greatest gifts we can offer our family and friends is helping them to die well. We have to sit quietly with them and say: “Do not be afraid … I love you, God loves you … it’s time for you to go in peace. … I won’t cling to you any longer … I set you free to go home … go gently, go with my love.” It is the greatest gift that you can give.


When Jesus died he said: “Father, into your hands I commit My Spirit”. Luke 23:46 It is good to repeat these words often with our dying friends. 


“The LORD is my Shepherd; I shall not want … and I shall dwell in the house of the LORD for years to come.”                          Psalms 23:1, 6

 Death frees us from the boundaries of chronology and brings us into God’s “time,” which is timeless. There is no “past,” “present,” or “future.”

Better Life

The mission of the Church is to offer people a better life. Yet, organizations like churches tend to become preoccupied with day to day problems and pressures.

 If you went to an ice cream store and there was no ice cream, there is a problem. A local church community can go year after year with almost no outreach to the “unchurched” in their area and yet think there is no problem. Let me tell you, there is a problem. It may be simply that Christians are not excited about sharing our good news that knowing and following Christ is the best way to live.

In the early days, the Church was unstoppable; they followed a simple strategy. They were courageous in telling their story and they made people feel welcome in their community. They invited people to their outreach events for lack of a proper word. They received help from the Holy Spirit.

The Holy Spirit showers His disciples with numerous gifts including the gift of healing and the power to deliver away evil spirits. He is as active today as He was 2000 years ago. He provides the necessary tools to disciples who are missionary-oriented. This was part of Jesus’ marching orders:

He (Jesus) said to them, “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 place their hands on sick people, and they will get well.”                                                                                       Mark 16:  15-18

Deliverance from Depression: is it really a mental illness or is it a kind of evil spirit? The Christian is suppose to experience peace and joy, but the depressed person cannot. The depressed  persons have problems believing that God loves them; they withdraw from community support and they are in a continued state of anxiety. They are completely overcome by evil. This is not of God’s will. One of the symptoms of depression is one’s experience that no one has been able to help; that even God does not care. 

There are times that depression is a demon.  And Saul’s servants said to him, “Behold now, an evil spirit from God is afflicting you.”                                                                                                                               1 Samuel 16:14-23


You may find yourself complaining about a whole host of things: impoliteness, rejection and negligence. This spins you into an endless cycle of self-rejection. This leaves you feeling like you are the most misunderstood, rejected, neglected and despised person in the world. This complaining is self-perpetuating.

You are a complainer and you are hard to live with. Often the complaints lead to further self-rejection. You probably have tried very hard to heal yourself from your complaints and failed … and failed … and failed, until you realize that you can only be healed from Above. “With man this is impossible, with God, everything is possible.”                                                   Matthew 19:26            Henri Nouwen


deliverance is

Deliverance is defined as “a rescue from bondage or danger.” Deliverance is often sought from evil spirits or the spirit of lust, jealousy, etc. We are told to “Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith.”                                                                                                                                                  1 Peter 5:8,9

All aspects of deliverance are available only through the person and work of Jesus Christ:” When the seventy-two disciples returned, they joyfully reported to him, ‘Lord, even the demons obey us when we use your name!’”                                                                              Luke 10:17

 demonic depression


To determine if you are in need of deliverance, ask yourself the following questions:

  1. Are you continually argumentative or contrary–usually on the verge of anger?
  2.  Are you violating, neglecting or causing pain in a relationship?
  3.  Are you practicing sin and can’t seem to stop?
  4. Do you see a pattern of issues in your family, whether disease, poverty, anger, divorce, sexual perversion or other issues?
  5. You are sick all the time and the doctors find nothing wrong. You could be dealing with a spirit of infirmity?
  6. Are you having “spiritual” encounters, including recurring  dreams/nightmares that you leave you fearful?
  7. Do you sometimes sense that the problem isn’t you, but rather something in you?
  8. Are you attracted  to the occult. , e.g. Ouija Boards, Seance, Fortune Telling, Horoscopes, Hypnosis etc, or Witchcraft?
  9. Have you experienced traumatic events that have impacted your life negatively?
  10.  Do you keep hitting the same wall.


The enemy’s number one area of attack is the mind. The demons will put negative or even perverse thoughts on your mind to make you believe that they are your thoughts. When people fall to complaining and fussing and feeling sorry for themselves, they lay themselves open to any danger of an invitation to evil spirits.

When you are depressed, your access to God’s presence is blocked                                         “Know that the Lord is God.
                                       It is He that made us, and we are His;[
                                       we are His people”                                          Psalm 100: 3 

It is a very destructive weapon of the enemy.

You need only concern yourself with getting your own house in order: “Seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness – and all the rest of these things will be granted to you as well.”                                                                                                                                                  Matthew 6:33

” I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”                                                                                                                                                Philippians 4:13

Sometimes, in the worst case rare scenarios, the possessed person is made to appear mad so as to be confined in a psychiatric clinic and deprived of any spiritual intervention.


  1. Generational Curses can be delivered.

Our forefathers have sinned and left us with a bent toward their sins.  It is not uncommon that people who suffer from a bipolar disorder also have biological parents who have suffered from the same disorder. Generational curses must be broken:   “whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be delivered”.  Joel 2:32

  1. Abuse Issues can be healed.

An emotional wound is a cutting wound and an emotional bruise.  As we strive to gain self-esteem, we may find ourselves on a roller coaster ride of ups and downs.

  1. Strict, Harsh Childhood Discipline can be forgiven.

There is a high coincidence between bipolar disorders and strict, harsh childhood discipline and legalistic religious background. 

  1. Evil Spirits who are invited from Occult Involvement can be bound and delivered.

Occult involvement may take on many forms: playing the Ouija board, fortune telling, reading occult material, participation in occult rituals, reading the horoscopes, and possessing of occult artifacts

  1. Darkened Conscious or Forgiveness of Oneself can be delivered.

Sometimes a person does things that he knows to be very wrong, but does not get caught or may deny everything.  When this occurs, it leaves a darkened conscious. 

6.   Soldiers returning from active front line duty develop a hate relationship with the enemy, suffer from trauma and a forgiveness of oneself for action taken in battle.  This causes a personality change where their own wives don’t recognize them. Evil spirits invite their addiction buddies, which compounds the problem. 

Psychologist are often at a loss other than offer medication to quiet one’s emotions.

And this is the message we have heard from Him and announce to you, that God is light, and  in Him there is no darkness at all”                                                                                                                                                   1 John 1:5.

The Physical Cycle: for every high, there is a corresponding low.

One may eat healthy foods and feel good for a while, but then go on a sweets binge that causes an immediate high.  The high will be followed by the “Sweet Blues”, better known as Depression. Therefore, the result is mood swings from one extreme to the other.  Exercise may also play a role in the physical cycle.  Some people go from one extreme to the other concerning exercise.  They may go all out for exercise for a while given them a lift.  However, they over do it or get bored.  They withdraw from most all exercise and feel a letdown.

For one to overcome this cycle, he must receive emotional healing from God, which will allow one to find an entirely new identity that does not change. 

The God of All Comfortdeliverance evil spirits

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God.”                                                                                                                                                 2 Corinthians 1:3-4 

Gather your heart into his sanctity, and drive sadness far away from yourself.  For sadness has killed many, and there is no usefulness in it.  Envy and anger shorten a man’s days, and pensiveness will bring old age before the time.  A cheerful and good heart is always feasting: for his banquets are prepared with diligence.”                                                                                           Sirach 30: 22-27

That’s easy to say but let’s get down to solutions:  Why is it that people who attended church at least once a week lived seven years longer than someone who didn’t attend at all. Among African-Americans, the disparity was even more stunning: fourteen years!


  1. Fortunately, the Accreditation Council on Graduate Medical Education thought so too. In 1994—at long last—its Special Requirements for Psychiatry Residency Training mandated that: young psychiatrists receive religious instruction.
  2.  a patient’s spiritual beliefs always be noted and taken seriously.

Most psychiatrists now believe that in severe depression, medication is needed to restore enough bodily and cognitive functioning for a sufferer to then attack the unhealthy thinking that has grown out of the illness. Most of the more than 20 types of psychotherapy show some success with depression, but those with the best track record are designed to be fairly short, lasting less than a year, and focus on correcting distorted thought patterns.” (from the article on depression: U.S. News) Many doctors treat their patients by natural methods, which leave the devils unperturbed.


Exorcism is exercised in case of possession, while deliverance deals with the influences that are not full possession. There are very few cases of possession as compared to ever pervading influence of different kinds of evil spirits affecting many people.


deliverance evil spirits

“The nations you will dispossess listen to those who practice sorcery or divination. But as for you, the Lord your God has not permitted you to do so. The Lord your God will raise up for you a prophet like me from among you, from your fellow Israelites. You must listen to him.”                                                             Deuteronomy 18:9-15

That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth”                                               Philippians 2:10  “The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me.”                                                                                                                                                Luke 4:18  “Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.”                                                                                                        James 4:7

These evil spirits are legalistic and they must be delivered in the Name of Jesus Christ by their function, otherwise the specific spirit would simply say “they are not talking to me” and they will stay. 


The faithful Christian praying for deliverance must be free of sin otherwise the devil will just laugh.


 “I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you.”                                                                                                                                            Luke 10:19   “The one who does what is sinful is of the devil … The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the devil’s work.”                1 John 3:8        In the Name of Jesus Christ, you can take authority over all evil influences and break these influences over your life.  This is accomplished together with one other Christian who is of God or is very close to God.

HOW DO YOU KNOW A DELIVERANCE HAS TAKEN PLACE?There is a definite sense of peace, which envelopes over the one being delivered.  You definitely know something has happened.          

Then comes Deliverance!!!

You may be wrapped up in a prickly blanket of sadness, you may be depressed, stressed or anxious, but it isn’t your fault.

 You can help yourself more than anyone.  The evil influence on you can be defeated through Jesus, the Source of strength. “Every knee will bend before Me”  Romans 14:11    That includes all evil spirits influencing you.

To our friends who are Muslim, Buddhist, Hindu, Atheist, Taoist, Mormon and Jehovah Witness:

To our knowledge, there is no one in your religious belief that can bind and deliver demonic spirits. There is a reason for this: demonic attacks are warded off in Jesus’ Name. It requires a bible oriented Christian to do the deliverance. You still can be delivered from your attacks, but it needs that all important Christian to command all evil spirits to go to Jesus Christ who will dispose of them according to His Will and to never return .


Prayer of Deliverance

The short form is “In the name of Our Lord Jesus, I bind and deliver the evil spirits of … to go to the abyss.” This is said for each individual evil spirit.

The following prayer can be done together: the person to be delivered must also pray during  “OUR PART“:                                                      “Come, Holy Spirit, Come” or “Come, Lord Jesus, Come” silently.

Your Christian friend will command these spirits to go back where they came from (the abyss) to be soon replaced with the Love and Blessing of the Lord: Free in Jesus.


The void that that takes place brings a complete sense of peace, and you will now be free in Jesus. 

(In the Name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, I command all evil spirits influencing you now, as you read this, to be quiet and not to give you any evil thoughts. This I command in the Name of Jesus.)

If you don’t believe this, try it and see for yourself. You will definitely know in three minutes that a physical change has taken place. 

The person delivered must now thank God for the spiritual healing every day until the total deliverance has taken place and to thank Him whenever he or she thinks about it. One must soak oneself in God’s love by reading the Bible: the short gospel of Luke for beginners and later the gospels of John. 


The delivered person does not want to ever go back to the ever pervading influence  of evil spirits. It is very important to connect with a Bible-oriented church.

This same prayer of deliverance can be used to exhort evil influences on members of your family by name in the same manner with you as the intercessor and with your prayerful Christian. They should be made aware of your prayer as a gentle mention that you have prayed for them so they can become more sensitized to God’s Love.


The key to the gifts of healing is one’s faith. People’s persistence proves their faithfulness. They believe that God has the answer to all their prayers. Persistent prayer is answered because those who believe actually expect to be healed by God, so they continually ask until they receive.

After receiving the beginning of healing, you must pray:” Lord Jesus, I love You; I believe in You; I trust You.


The person delivered and healed must continue to thank God for the spiritual healing every day until the total deliverance and healing has taken place and to thank Him whenever he or she thinks about it (a minimum of once a day) by a FAITH breath prayer until the healing takes place; it is only 12 words:


Thanking God, before the healing happens, strengthens your faith.

Do not Stay Outside in the Dark.

I love you.I have compassion on all My friends and on all peoples.

Many people live in a prison of despair, fear, loneliness and darkness. They suffer much trapped in this prison with the feeling that there is no way out.

They are wrong. I have the key to let them out, if they would turn to Me.  Did I not say ‘I am the Resurrection and the life.’ 

I can break every chain and bring you freedom if you believe in Me with all your heart. For many today faith is weak and full of doubts.

There are many people who are depressed these days. Their world is very dark. Some are crushed by many burdens or they have been seriously wounded psychologically.

Marriage problems often lead to depression.

Others are depressed when the sun isn’t shining.

Financial problems can lead to depression when a person loses his or her job and faces ruin.

One of the most fundamental reasons for this sad condition is the lack of trust in Me. It shows itself by crying, lack of energy to do anything and feeling trapped and unable to get free. Some feel they are in a hole and are unable to get out.

Depression brings great sadness and often the person has no desire to live. It is also the result of the society in which people live.

All you who are depressed, come to Me and I will refresh you.

Call upon My help and on the power of the Holy Spirit. Believe in Me with all your being and I will give you hope, hope in Me and in My promises. I am the light at the end of the tunnel. Place all your trust in Me and receive My peace and My love.

Do not stay outside in the dark, join those who have already come into the light. 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.






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. 

Christianity and Hinduism Differences


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.Chinese Religion God



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.


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.

World Missions

World Missions


World missions had taken a beating after World War II. There was a great move for independence and nationalism. Missionaries, which represent Western culture, were attacked.  These Western missionaries were the first symbols of the West to go. When Western missionaries began leaving, they also started to pull out their financial support. Now 86 nations–with more than half of the world’s population –forbid or seriously restrict foreign missionaries.

Another reason for failure was that Western believers experienced worldliness, pride and unbelief. They used the humanist social gospel, where the emphasis is on the ”care of the whole man”. Humanists will not declare that the most important root cause of poverty is sin. This approach avoids the most important part of man: one’s spiritual life. 

Missionary schools and hospitals have come and gone in the last seven generations precisely because they did not deal with this root cause. Social work is not enough: what is required is evangelism and church planting: someone has to stay behind and nurture the new believers into maturity.

In foreign missions, people are starving because they have been enslaved by sin. The battle against hunger and poverty is really a spiritual battle, not a physical or social one. The only effective weapon one can use is the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Your relatives all tell you it is important to succeed. Yet, when we look at the poor of the world they believe that their poverty is the excuse they have for not succeeding. They are too busy looking for the next meal and they have no time for anything else. They are in a survival mode and there is a total absence of faith and hope: they have accepted their fate. They have no dream of a great future.

Many churches experience the same phenomena: they have no dreams. They may not be in a survivalist mode, but they are in a maintenance mode. There is total absence of hope of a bright future.

In Nehemia 2, we see that there was the same sense of lost hope in Jerusalem. The walls were in ruins as was many of their houses. Nehemia pointed to their pain. “You see the trouble we are in: Jerusalem lies in ruins, and its gates have been burned with fire. Come, let us rebuild the wall of Jerusalem, and we will no longer be in disgrace.”                                                                                     Nehemiah 2:17

Sometimes pain is useful: it points us to the fact that something is wrong and something has to be done. They replied, “Let us start rebuilding.” So they began this good work… I answered them by saying, “The God of heaven will give us success.” Nehemiah 2:18, 20: there was a need for a reawakening.

Today we are continually bombarded with bad news in all parts of the world including Europe and North America. This leaves us with a sense of giving up.

Yet when man and God come together, all is possible. God inspires the heart:”Yes, we can do it.” We are destined to do great things with God. We are powerful with God, because we are children of God. We simply must have faith in His miracles. Hearts will eventually change. They will see the glory of God through you.

We read in Matthew 28 of the need to make disciples of all nations when Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to Me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Matthew28: 18-20. This is what is commonly called “the Great Commission”, one of the most quoted passages of the New Testament.

There is a similar reference in the Old Testament: Daniel prophesies about this coming One, which is what Jesus is echoing here. In Daniel chapter 7 notice what is “given” to the “One like a Son of man”: ” I kept looking in the night visions, and behold, with the clouds of heaven One like a Son of Man was coming, and He came up to the Ancient of Days and was presented before Him. And to Him was given dominion, glory and a kingdom, that all the peoples, nations and men of every language might serve Him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion which will not pass away; and His kingdom is one which will not be destroyed.”                  Daniel 7:13 -14

World Mission


The average North American Christian gives only 50 cents per week to global missions, which is known as the Great Commission. Missions are the primary task of the Church, yet it receives only one percent of all our finances.

Born into affluence, freedom and divine blessings, Western Christians should be the most thankful people on earth. Along with these privileges comes responsibility:  what should one do with these unearned favors?  The Gospel has only one response: share.

“I do not mean that there should be relief for others and pressure on you, but it is a question of a fair balance between your present abundance and their need, so that their abundance may be for your need in order that there may be a fair balance.Corinthians 8:13-14

God has not given us an abundance of blessings so that we can sit back and enjoy the luxuries of this world, or gorge ourselves on spiritual Cd’s and deeper- life conferences.

What does God really want?  He really wants us to realign our lifestyle so that many non-essentials of our life can be re-invested in the wealth of the Kingdom of God. Unfortunately, our Christian missions lack the total involvement from the support of the Body of Christ.

Have we lost touch with the Supernatural?

We will all experience pain at sometime or other in our lives. Whether this pain is our doing or God’s doing, which is something entirely different. Why an all-good, all-loving God does allow us to suffer? This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is Suffering-Happiness98-done.jpg Easy! He allows us all sorts of things because we have the freedom to behave as we will. He has also provided a place with the greatest contentment that we can imagine, if only we listen to Him. God wants us to return to Him, but He cannot force us to take this action. SUFFERING JOY


God changes what suffering can do; it can make us one with God. We are all called to the perfect joy. The Holy Spirit changes our sorrow and suffering into joy. “But the fruit of the Holy Spirit is love, joy, peace, long suffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law.”                  Galatians 5: 22-23

Fear not“, because God  is always with you, even in times that seem very obscure to you: “They do not know My ways. Psalm 95:10

Billy Graham’s daughter was interviewed on the Early Show and she was asked, How could God let something like this happen?‘ (regarding Hurricane Katrina).  Anne Graham gave an extremely profound and insightful response..  She said, ‘I believe God is deeply saddened by this, just as we are, but for years we’ve been telling God to get out of our schools, to get out of our government and to get out of our lives.  And being the gentleman He is, I believe He has calmly backed out.  

How can we expect God to give us His blessing and His protection if we demand He leave us alone?

SUFFERING JOYSuffering does not Rob you of Joy.

“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness.” 1 Thessalonians 1:6  “And the disciples were filled with joy and with the Holy Spirit.”                                          Acts 13:52 Joy and sorrow comes together in the Christian life. You can’t have joy without sorrow and you can’t have sorrow without joy. One must focus on the spiritual joy and our need for that gift which the Holy Spirit gives us. We need the consolation of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit consoles us in our trials. Better times are coming (but not for those who live in a bad way). Already the world is aging, it is turning to decay, and are we ourselves going to become young again? What are we hoping for, then? Maybe, it is necessary that times be hard. Why? So that we don’t look for happiness in this world. This is our remedy: this life needs to be troubled so that we attach ourselves to the other life. How? Listen… God sees people becoming miserably agitated under the grip of their desires and the worries of this world. Then the Lord comes to them like a physician bearing the cure.                                                                                 St.Augustine (354-430) We walk in a “ravine as dark as death” Psalm 23:4, and still we have nothing to fear because God is at our side: God’s staff and crook are there to soothe us. This is not just a consoling idea. It is an experience of the heart that we can trust. Our lives can be full of suffering, pain, disillusions, losses and grief, but they are also marked by visions of the coming of the Son of Man “like lightning striking in the east and flashing far into west” Matthew 24:27. These moments in which we see clearly, hear loudly, and feel deeply that God is with us on the journey make us shine as a light into the darkness. Jesus says, “You are the light of the world. Your light must shine in people’s sight, so that, seeing your good works, they may give praise to your Father in heaven”.                                                                                                   Matthew 5:14-16             Henri Nouwen
