Why Pray? 2

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.

Have you ever directed your prayers inwardly rather than outwardly to the God -in-the-sky?

“Pray as if you were to die tomorrow.”                                 Benjamin Franklin

Most of our lives our prayers lack genuine honesty and depth or passion. We sometimes pray in an automated mode.

 “And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask Him. ”  Matthew 6:7-8

The Psalms are a supreme way of real praying. They help us fulfill a longing for a contact with the Divine Will of God– filled with honesty and flowing from the very core of our being.  The ultimate goal is to feel totally one with everything — liberated and enlightened with your Divine Creator. This is the goal of all major faiths in the world: a union with God and all creation.

All the faiths, with the exception of Buddhism, teach that there is a God who is not a “Person” who has created the cosmos.  It is possible to know and experience this personal Spiritual Source and it is our entire purpose in life to do so. These similarities are astounding even though there are differences: St. Paul’s idea of God-union was different from all other faiths: he insisted that Christ was the sole mediator of union with God. Our goal of being one with the Creator goes further: we ultimately all wish to share in the final bliss called heaven as fellow-heirs with God Himself, whom we will meet face to face.

While praying for others, imagine God’s Light of pure love surrounding your friend or relative — dazzling and protective. Visualize how he or she is being raised up and held by you in the light — asking for his or her health to be restored. If you yourself are suffering from fear or anxiety, you can also visualize how God’s power and strength are with you while you pray with eyes of faith knowing that there are forces of energy on your side at those moments. You eventually come to the realization that you are forced to ” let go and let God” because it is too much for you. “For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline.”                                                                                         Timothy 1:7 

Why Pray

Looking back at your life, you will acknowledge how any apparent evil has become good. Even better, “What am I most thankful to God for at this exact moment in time?”

Let us not forget the prayers of praise and thanksgiving. If you forget about your own Creator, you will quickly replace Him with a host of other forms of worship:  sports, sex, electronic devices, etc.

One prays with the body as well as with the soul — whether it is on your knees or with raised hands.  The act of chanting or singing stimulates glands and organs of your body.

“Teach us to pray”

Here is what St. Augustine said about teaching us to pray:

My brethren, do you imagine God is ignorant of what you need? He who knows our distress foreknows our desires also. That is why, in teaching them the Our Father, the Lord counseled his disciples not to use many words: “When you pray, do not keep babbling because your Father knows what you need before you ask him” Matthew 6, 7-8. If our Father already knows what we need, why tell him about it even in few words?… If you know about it, Lord, do we even need to pray?

However, he who says to us here: “Do not use many words in your prayers” says to us elsewhere: “Ask and you will receive”, and so that we don’t think this is said casually, he adds: “Seek and you will find”, and so that we don’t think this to be a mere figure of speech, see how he concludes: “Knock and it will be opened to you”        Matthew 7,7

So what he wants is for you to begin by asking so as to receive, to set yourself to seeking in order to find and not to stop knocking so as to enter in the end… Why ask? Why seek? Why knock? Why weary ourselves with praying, seeking, knocking as though we had to inform him who already knows it all? We even read elsewhere:  “Pray always without becoming weary”         Luke 18,1

Well, to clear up this mystery, ask, seek, knock! If He disguises this mystery it is because He wants to move you to seek and find the explanation for yourself. We should all encourage ourselves to pray.

JESUS WISHES TO SPEAK TO YOU.

We Live in your Hearts if you Open them to us.

“I love you.

My dear friend, yes we live in your heart if you open them to us. Is there a greater gift than to receive your God in your heart? We love you and make our home in you. It is my joy to come and live in you.

All you need to do is to invite us in and repent of all your sins. Believe the words of the Gospel of John concerning this teaching which is called the Indwelling.

Come often to join us in your heart by praise and adoration. If you are joined with us, We will give you the great gift of peace. Your heart will be that little corner of heaven where joy will reign always.

If you truly love Me, you would be faithful to Me every day. My friends do not compromise with what is opposed to Me. Get rid of all doubts and accept Me with all your heart. If your heart is divided, you cannot advance and My grace in you is useless. May your faith be strong to believe that I am alive and that I love you.

Commit your whole life to Me and you will live in the power of the Holy Spirit. Be constant in prayer so that our relationship may grow and you will live in the light. I cherish all My faithful friends for I know I can count on them to carry out My will. They will not run away when it is difficult but they will rely on My grace to live through these difficult days.

Be on the watch though for temptations so that you do not fall into sin. Remain close to the Father, the Holy Spirit and me. In heaven, you will be perfectly united with us forever.

Today be a home for Us and show Us your love. We bless you with our love.”

PHYSICAL HEALING ASSURED 2

PHYSICAL HEALING

Jesus Himself did not emphasize the miraculous; He saw physical healing as an ordinary aspect of what He called “works“, rather than miracles: a form of Good News in action. Healing of the spirit, emotion and body was all part of the message of salvation. So the apostles preached by healing and this continues today.

Physical Healing

Most people don’t know that God want to heal them:

“Dear friend, I pray that you may enjoy good health and that all may go well with you, even as your soul is getting along well. ”                                                                                                                                           3 John 1:2

“They were anointed by the Holy Spirit with power; because God was within them, they cured all who had fallen into the power of the devil. “So the kingdom of God is not just words: it is power.             1 Corinthians 4:19,20 It is power to transform lives. It is Good News

PHYSICAL HEALING

Too many Christians are broken.  They are so broken that they cannot carry out the commandment to love God and their neighbor. Their inner turmoil prevents them from following God’s will.

Paradoxically, they may believe that this illness or brokenness is part of God’s will. So they don’t pray for a release for what God wants of them.

There is a mistaken belief, that you should carry your cross, as Jesus did.  Jesus does say to bear your cross, yet whenever He meets people who are sick, He cures them. This inconsistency can be explained by describing this cross as a cross of persecution, which comes outside of man.

The words healing and peace are synonymous with each other. You cannot have one without the other. The measure of healing is measured by the degree of peace we are feeling. 

Physical sickness in our bodies is caused by disease or accident.  Sickness may simply be a message to you to keep your life in balance. Fear, anger, and stress are all barriers to healing.  These states often create illness.  The word “dis-ease” means without ease. This means that mind, heart and spirit are meant to be in balance.

We must use the natural means of preserving health. Physicians are instruments that are ordinarily used to bring about healing for trauma.  Psychology helps to bring problems to the light for what they are. One can administer to the body the necessary supplements and the body will heal itself to an extent. Surgeons can physically repair the body. But the miracle of healing is still by Jesus’ stripes (whippings).

devil evil WHAT EFFECT DOES EVIL SPIRITS HAVE ON DISEASE?

Migraine headaches can be triggered by guilt (self-hatred) first, resulting from conflict in your life and then fear.   Cancer is a disease of the mind, body, and spirit.  A proactive and positive spirit will help the cancer warrior be a survivor. Anger, un-forgiveness and bitterness put the body into a stressful and acidic environment. 

Relationship between Healing & Deliverance

deliverance evil spirits

We all our born with a sinful nature.  This sometimes gives the devil a foot hold into our lives. People need to be delivered from this hold of Satan.

There is a relationship between healing and the need for deliverance. Many are never healed because they have never received deliverance from the spirits that made them sick. They are obstacles to healing. The sins of the paralytic was the cause of the illness, so the first thing that Jesus did was to forgive his sins.                                                                                                                                          Matthew 9:2

Jesus accomplished two things: “Jesus healed many who had various diseases. He also drove out many demonsMark 1: 34.  Some people simply need healing from the diseases that have made them sick; others need deliverance from the spirits that have made them sick.

Demons are subservient to anyone who has the authority to release these demons. Satan kept his power, but he doesn’t have any authority over God’s power. Satan’s power can only be broken in the Name of Jesus.  Jesus gave this authority back to us, especially to those who have been given the gift of deliverance.

We shouldn’t ignore the role demons may play regarding sickness and the demonic signs:

  1. The most common way that discernment works is through a “knowing” that something is there.
  2. It is demonic if the sickness affects the spiritual life of the sick. Physically ill people get furious at preaching. In cases where the sick are not experiencing more spiritual growth but getting bitter, angry, and more sinful, then their sickness has a demonic root.
  3. It is demonic if there are strange occurrences, which doctors often cannot explain or cure.

We are not saying that every disease is caused by a demon.  It’s not that common to find illness that’s only totally “natural” or one that’s only totally “demonic”. There’s almost always an interaction between the two. There is a need for both natural healing and demonic healing.

Those who were possessed by evil spirits can be healed.  “They cast out many devils, and anointed many sick people with oil and cured them.”                                                                                                                   Mark 6:13

What is the difference between exorcism and deliverance? 

EXORCISM

Exorcism is exercised in case of possession. There are very few cases of possession as compared to ever pervading influence of different kinds of evil spirits affecting many people.These demons of possession identify themselves by a title:  Say “In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, I command you evil spirit, to identify yourself: ” Who are you?” 

DELIVERANCE

 Deliverance deals with the influences that are not full possession. Deliverance is a prayer of freeing a person oppressed by evil spirits, which is relatively common occurrence. It can be described as a part of one’s body, which is under the control of the enemy, e.g.  a compulsion such as drug addiction.

The first step is for the minister of healing to pray that the power of the blood of Jesus surround and protect every person in the room: “In the name of Jesus, I pour the blood of Jesus  in this room and on everyone in this room.”

 It starts with questions about “when did all this start?”, “Do you have any idea why this started?”

Deliverance requires that the minister of deliverance name the evil spirits by their function 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 demons who entered through spiritualism or the occult, are principle demons: they should be driven out first, otherwise they will block any other deliverance.  

Several of the spirits sometimes surface and block the prayer of deliverance,  so the minister of deliverance prays: “In the name of Jesus, I command all evil spirits residing in you to be quiet and not give you any evil thoughts.”  The client need not hear this prayer.

Sometimes it is wise to help by asking the tormented person to cast out the demons themselves: “Say: Get out! Cough it out!” If this becomes too exhibitionistic, one can command the evil spirits to be quiet.

FILLING THE VACUUM

 Often there is a sense of freedom and joy associated with the deliverance and healing: it’s like the lifting of a weight or pain.       

Anything left empty by the departure of the demons should be filled by the presence of Jesus. There should be a prayer immediately after the deliverance to fill the person with God’s love and grace.                                                                                                                                                                         The client should be taught to break the habitual behavior patterns which originally led to the demonic infestation:  “I command evil spirits of … to leave me now, in the name of Jesus Christ. Thank you, Jesus. Praise you, Jesus.”

The person delivered must now thank God for the spiritual healing every day until the total healing 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 biography of Jesus in the short gospel of Luke for beginners and later the gospels of John. 

Ideally, the person should then become part of a Christian community support for the same reason that alcoholics are asked to become members of Alcoholic Anonymous.  The client’s new Christian friends will help one put one’s life into balance.

LONG DISTANCE HEALING

Long distance healing is possible as demonstrated by the centurion, who had a wide channel of self-sacrificial faith and who surprised Jesus: “Truly I tell you, I have not found anyone in Israel with such great faith.”                                                                                              Matthew 8:10

 People, who have a prayer list, and have been sincerely praying will have their prayers answered by a minister of healing in the Name of Jesus Christ.  This includes any form of healing from addiction.

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.

MEDICINE

Deep seated refusal to grant honor (not unbelief) prevented Jesus from exercising His power in His own hometown. So the lack of honor hold the power to restrain God’s Hand. Where people withhold honor from one another, God restrains His Hand.

God works through those practicing medicine: the doctor, the counselor and the psychiatrist are all ministers of healing: “Then give the doctor his place lest he leave; for you need him too. There are times that give him an advantage, and he too beseeches God that his diagnosis may be correct and his treatment bring about a cure.”                                                                                                       Sirach 38:12-14 

FAITH IN HEALING

There are those who are especially anointed with the ministry of healing, although every believer ought to have a ministry of healing. Christ is the one who does the healing, and upon occasion, He can work through the prayers of any Christian. “Everything is possible for anyone who believes.”  Mark 9:23  God wants to share the Holy Spirit with everyone. Every believer ought to take the Word of God to a sick person.

Jesus did not heal all the people of the land: only the ones that came to Him.   If one senses that this could be a divine appointment, one can simply ask or say:

  • “Do you want to be healed?”
  • “Is it okay to pray for you?”
  • “Jesus loves you and wants you to be healed.”

DELIVERANCE in the BIBLE     

“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

WHO HAS THE AUTHORITY TO DELIVER EVIL INFLUENCES

A faithful Christian who is sinless: otherwise the evil spirits will just laugh at one’s sins.

Jesus is God.

 “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

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

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

The person being delivered does not have to be Christian. You may be  in for a big surprise. We do not know how the Holy Spirit will act. He may grant a healing in order to provide you with a surprise. I t may force you to acknowledge its true Source, Jesus Christ. You will only know by accepting prayers of healing and deliverance: you have every thing to gain and nothing to lose.

There is no one in any non-Christian religious belief that can bind and deliver demonic spirits. There is a reason for this: demonic attacks are obliterated  only in Jesus’ Name. It requires a bible oriented Christian to do the deliverance.

OBSTACLES TO PHYSICAL HEALING 2

HEALING and DELIVERANCE

 Prayer of Deliverance

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.

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.

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 Healing 

I love you.

I have great power to help you My brother Melvin and all My brothers and sisters who follow Me. I have great power to bring about all that I desire. I did many miraculous deeds when I was on earth such as bringing the dead to life, giving sight to the blind and helping the lame to walk.

I am still today chasing away evil spirits from the people who are possessed. Those to whom I gave the power can call upon Me and I will liberate those possessed. There are possessed people in every country and they need to be freed. People are possessed because they have done terrible acts against Me and therefore were taken over by those evil spirits.

I call you all to remain close to Me if you want to be free of evil spirits. Never take part in such sects as New Age or do riki. These are of the devil and those who take part in this will be possessed. So never have anything to do with New Age or riki.  I bless you all.”

RELEASE OF THE SPIRIT 2

THE HOLY SPIRIT

The Inner Spirit
Just as we are dressed in clothes, so our inward person “wears” an outward person: the inner spirit “wears” the psyche.  And similarly, the inner spirit and psyche “wear” the body.

It is quite evident that men are generally more conscious of the outer or outermost person, and they hardly recognize or understand their inner spirit at all.  

Watchman Nee, the author of  The Release of the Spirit has correctly identified  the Bible reference of man’s inner spirit or the inner man (person); he calls man’s soul (psyche) the outer man (person) and for the body he uses the term, the outermost man:

 “I pray that out of His glorious riches He may strengthen you with power through His Spirit in your inner being.”           Ephesians 3: 16

 

The Inner Spirit

We may be able to mouth the word, Not my will but Thine be done,” but how often do we really allow the Lord to take over when things happy.” The person who loves his life will lose it, while the person who hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life. “                                                                                                                                                   John 12:25

3-part

“For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit...”                                                                                                                           Hebrews 4:12

The answer one gets from many people including ministers and priests: “I thought the soul and the spirit were the same.”

Yet how could they be the same? Paul, by the Spirit of God, said they can be divided by the Word of God. If you can divide them, they cannot be the same.

You can skim along on the surface of the Bible and find a little gold here and there—and you can even find a nugget of gold occasionally. But if you really want to strike it rich, you have to dig down deep into the Word of God.

With my body I contact the physical realm. (That goes without argument.) With my spirit I contact the spiritual realm.

That left only one other part of me that made contact with any other realm. I knew then that it had to be with my soul that I contacted the intellectual or soul realm (which includes the emotions and the intellect). “With my soul I contact the intellectual realm: For if I pray in an unknown tongue, my spirit prays, but my understanding is unfruitful.”                                                                                   Corinthians 14:14

As a result of receiving the Holy Spirit, Jesus said, “He that believes in Me, as the scripture has said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.”  John 7:38  Another translation reads, out of the inner spirit  shall flow rivers of living water.”

You can learn to pray in other tongues — full of vowels and mixed heavenly languages. While you are praying with the Holy Spirit in other tongues, guidance comes up from inside you. Your body is not active, your mind (your soul) is not active, but your inner spirit is active, and it is through your inner spirit that God is going to guide you.

The Holy Spirit who resides in your inner spirit gives it the utterance and you speak it out. Your inner spirit is active when you are praying in tongues.

Sometimes you are able to interpret what you are praying in tongues, and through the interpretation you receive light and guidance. “For this reason the one who speaks in a tongue should pray that they may interpret what they say.” 1 Corinthians 14:13. So  people who have the gift of interpreting tongues will tell you what the Holy Spirit is saying to you.

One reason the church as a whole has failed so miserably is that it has done so much of just one kind of praying—praying with the understanding, or mental praying

SHEDDING THE OUTER MAN

 “I tell you the truth, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.”                                                                                                                                                  Matthew 18: 3

To allow the inner life to come forth, it is imperative that the outward life be shed. Our self seems to permeate every part of our being,  which robs God of glory.

Many have a feeling that  they are better than others; they think that their eloquence surpasses that of others; they believe that their quickness of action and exactness of judgment are superior, and so forth.  

Do you not see what God is doing in this endless round of difficulties?  The Lord wants to get our attention: He allows us to crash into a wall and hit the dust with  many years of sufferings, trials, hindrances: this is the hand of God, daily seeking to carry on His work of breaking us. Everyone of us is in need of this discipline from the Lord. It is all for our highest good. 

God says  that He loves you too much to leave you where you are in your comfort zone:  “For whom the Lord loves he chastens, and scourges every son whom he receives.”                                 Hebrews 12:6 

Strong-willed people are convinced their feelings, ways and judgments are always right. Consider how Paul received this grace: “Do not trust in flesh”                                                                         Philippians 3:3  

Why is it that after many years some are still unchanged?

  • First, many who live in darkness are oppressed by evil spirits and they cannot see the hand of God.
  • Second, another great hindrance to the work of breaking the outer person is self-love.There is really only one giant obstacle in our search: it’s our comfort zone:  “For many are called, but few are chosen.”                                                                                    Matthew 22:14 

Thus the outward person is not a helper but a disturber.

The Divine Mercy and Love of God 

There is a lot of talk about breaking obstacles as if it was hard work.  Actually it is the Holy Spirit who does the shedding for you upon your invitation and acceptance. There is nothing to be afraid.  There is no pain involved — only peace and joy. It is in the inner spirit of man where we find love, as opposed to self-love in the outer man. 

“The law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set me free from the law of sin and of death”.  Romans 8:2  But why is this law of the Spirit of life ineffectual in certain people? In His word, God has explained our problem: “The righteous requirement of the law should be fulfilled in us who walk . . . according to Spirit. Romans 8:4  We must be upright and moral: ‘You have purified your souls in your obedience to the truth.”                                                                         I Peter 1:22

After one accepts the Lord as his Savior, as the outward person controlled the inward before, so now his inward person should hold absolute sway over the outward.  Eventually we must confess: “It is the Spirit which quickens.”                                                                  John 6:63

We must submit to what the Holy Spirit orders. Such submission brings blessing to us. We do not pray: “Lord, I beseech Thee to be my Savior.” We simply say: “Lord, I receive Thee as my Savior.” Instantly, one becomes new! It is all about acceptance.   “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.”                             2 Corinthians 5:17

What are the Holy Spirit Gifts of Salvation?

  1. When the outward person is shed, the inward person enjoys peace before God. “Come to Me, all you who labor and are burdened, and I will give you rest… For My yoke is easy, and My burden light.”                                                                           Matthew 11: 30
  2. We do not know our own heart. Only those who are in the light know their own heart. No one else does. When God’s word comes, we “see”. When God opens our eyes that we may know the intent of our heart and the deepest thought within us in the measure that He Himself knows us, this is revelation. What the Lord does is to pierce into our inner person with a penetrating light. It may happen while we are listening to a message, or praying by ourselves, or meeting with others, or even walking alone.
  1. Those of us who have received the Gifts of the Holy Spirit, may most spontaneously contact the inner spirit in others by our own inner spirit. Whenever one speaks in our presence, we can “size him up”, evaluate what kind of person he is, what attitude he is taking, what sort of Christian he is, and what his needs are. “For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul (psyche)and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.”                                                                                        Hebrews 4:12.
  1. Once the outward person is shed, utterance is no longer a problem. One can then think of appropriate words to express his inner feeling. Through release, the inner burden is lightened. This is the way to minister God’s word to the church. 
  1. It may be almost impossible to really understand parts of the Bible.  The Holy Spirit changes all that:  the Word of God is installed on our heart:“This is the covenant I will make with the people of Israel after that time,” declares the LORD. “I will put my law in their minds  and write it on their hearts. I will be their God,  and they will be my people. “Jeremiah 31:33  Your reading becomes a treasure hunt of faith and revelation, where the Holy Spirit guides you: one’s inner spirit is released with the Holy Spirit. 
  2. When the inner spirit is released, such trivialities as clothing, eating or drinking can escape the careful hand of the Holy Spirit. He will not neglect one area in your life. “…but of you even the hairs of the head are all numbered”. Matthews 10: 30  Hence we may be sure that all our circumstances are ordered by God. Nothing is accidental.
  1. Once proud or vain persons have been truly enlightened, they cannot so much as make an attempt to be proud or conceited anymore. The effect of that enlightenment will have its mark upon them all their days.
  1. The problem of strength is solved, which is a problem of the outward person. The Lord says, Be strong.” In the Lord you also say, “Be strong. And you find you are strong. None can block your way. “I can do all things through Christ which strengthen me.”                                                                                              Philippians 4:13
  2. There are those who have been given a gift of interpretation of tongues. The gift of tongues allows those in fellowship of the Holy Spirit to discern what is God’s will.
  3. We can then pray and act with one accord with all the gifts.
  4. When the inner spirit is released, it supplies the needs of the world. No work is more important or thorough than this, and nothing can take its place. The Lord is not so much concerned with your teachings or sermons as He is with the impression you give and the divine appointments he plans for you each day.

You are Me and I am you, and we are One

When we are baptized in the Holy Spirit, we connect with our inner spirit and we receive God’s Spirit too.  We often say that the Holy Spirit dwells in our inner spirit.  The Holy Spirit and our inner spirit are joined into one, “but he who unites himself with the Lord is one with Him in spirit.”                                                                    1 Corinthians 6:17

We must accept the Spirit of God as part of ourselves.  God is with us always, because we are One. 

Allow yourself to be spread like paint in a paint can, as being the flow of Creation. The universe out there becomes our creation, which is a playground for us to play.  We must think of “being in the now” as being spontaneously available to God in our moment to moment experiences.

God’s plan was for us to live in glory.  God created earth, so He could have a relationship with us.   We must become more tuned in as to what it is that we are seeking.

IMPORTANT BAPTISM of the HOLY SPIRIT 2

BAPTISM OF THE HOLY SPIRIT

BAPTIZED IN THE HOLY SPIRIT” …you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit.”                                 Acts 1: 5

Paul’s main argument is this: isn’t it true that you experienced the work of the Spirit among you.  “… does God give you His Spirit and work miracles among you by the works of the law, or by your believing what you heard?”                                                           Galatians :1-5

“I will send you what my Father has promised, but you must stay in Jerusalem until you have received that power from heaven.”                                                                                                                                             Luke 24: 49

“And I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Counselor to be with you forever. He is the Spirit of truth. The world is unable to receive Him because it doesn’t see Him or know Him. But you do know Him, because He remains with you and will be in you.”                                                                                                                                         John 14:16-17

We know that we live in Him and He in us, because He has given us of His Spirit.”                                                                                      1 John 4:13  

Christians begin to experience something different in their  God prefers to give the gift of prophecy to a body through an individual, not to an individual for his own use. So that each spiritual gift is a working of the Spirit which is given to build up the Church. “For we were all baptized by one Spirit so as to form one body… and we were all given the one Spirit to drink.”      Corinthians12:13 

“And John came and laid hands on them ‘and they received the Holy Spirit Acts 8:17 Some experienced a deep peace or joy.  Some even laughed. Some experienced one’s whole life begins to change completely different.

” 4Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit...

 8For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit;

 9To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit;

 10To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues:  11 But all these worketh that one and the self same Spirit.”                        1 Corinthians 12:4,8-11

Paul emphasizes the need to seek spiritual gifts. A community of Christians need special gifts from God to know the Bible in order to preach it. They need to have their preaching accompanied by signs so that others will believe.

And he preached, saying, One cometh after me, that latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy to stoop down and loose. 8. I indeed have baptized you with water: but He shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost.”  Mark 1:7-8  In other words, Jesus is the baptizer with the Holy Spirit.

JESUS WISHES TO SPEAK TO YOU

Baptism HOLY SPIRIT

      Baptism is Necessary for Salvation.

“I love you.

I gave the Apostles the command to go into the whole world to preach the Gospel I gave them and to baptize all those who believe in Me. Baptism is the sacrament by which sins are forgiven and God comes to live in the heart of the baptized. Through Baptism a person is incorporated into My Body, the Church.

Baptism, My brother and sister, is necessary for salvation. As adults, all need to believe in Me and accept My teaching before they can be baptized. Infants and small children are baptized in the faith of their parents.

This is a holy celebration where man gives his assent and where the Holy Spirit confers a special power. This power unites a man and a woman and makes them husband and wife and ordination empowers a man to be a priest and to act as a priest. 

My Baptism in the Jordan meant that I accepted the role of Savior that My Father assigned to Me.  The baptism symbolizes that I put on all the sins of the world and enter the water to die for them. 

My immersion in the water symbolized My death for sins and My emergence from the water signified My Resurrection.  Having said ‘yes’ to the Father’s call, the Holy Spirit empowered Me and the Father proclaimed for all to hear how pleased He was with Me.

You enter the Kingdom by Baptism and you remain in it by following the commandments.

Live what the church teaches and you will be a faithful member of My Kingdom.

This Kingdom is of the heart where I make My home in you.

I give the gift of faith to all those who sincerely ask for it. Be ready, My friends, to explain to anyone who asks a reason for your faith in Me. Show them how important I am in your life.

I have shown you great love and I still show you My love every day. You can have no greater joy than the joy I give you. It is My gift to My friends.

Pray for the conversion of all the people of the world. Make sacrifices that they may leave their life of sin behind and reform their ways with the help of My grace. 

I want every person to be My friend. I died for them all. I bless you.”

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 2

 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 2

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.

“You are born again by the Spirit of God. ”                            John 3: 3-6   

“The instant that I was born again, I felt wonderful. It was just like a two-ton weight had rolled off my chest. I was rejoicing and I felt happy spiritually.”              I BELIEVE IN VISIONS by Kenneth Hagin

 

BORN AGAIN
BORN AGAIN

There’s Got to be More to Christianity!

 “’Consider carefully what you hear,’ He continued. ‘With the measure  you use, it will be measured to you—and even more.‘”           Mark 4:24

God gives us the oil of holiness. We become like new wine skins , not by your own strength. This means there is no self-effort. But it also means there is no more agenda. Once you give God everything that you have, you die to yourself. The old wine skin has to go.

There may be a period when your faith is trained and tested. God only wants to get your attention.

We must keep going and seek Him. God said that you should seek and you will find.  This is an authoritative statement with only one proviso: it must be done on God’s timing. He didn’t say seek him until you find Him. With holiness, you will see Him.

“Now he who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will also supply and increase your store of seed and will enlarge the harvest of your righteousness.”                                        2 Corinthians 9: 10

So if you believe a little, you will get a little, but if you believe a lot, you will get a lot. Once you soak yourself in the spirit of holiness, you will receive perfect love, which was given at Pentecost.

When you receive Jesus as our personal Saviour by faith, His life enters your spirit. You are now what Scripture calls born again. John 3:1-9. You have Christ’s brand new life inside you. His purity, love, peace, truth, and blessings are now inside your spirit. You are beautiful and perfect within.

As a child of your Heavenly Father, you are invited to communicate with Him through prayer. Prayer is easy — you simply share your heart with Him. He loves to answer our desires. Prayer is very fulfilling and powerful.

BORN AGAIN

You will also want to meet some other Christians who understand the love of God. Fellowship can be great fun. Visit some of the churches in your areas. Christ’s Holy Spirit dwells within you, and He will direct you to a good fellowship if you ask Him to.

Just like a newborn baby needs nourishment and care, so do new babies in the Lord. The Bible is full of truth that is like fresh milk and food for you . As you read it each day, it will nourish you and reveal wonderful things about God’s love and His ways. Here are the gift, which you will discover by reading the Word of God, which:

Frames the will of God                                                                     Hebrews 11:3

Brings light into darkness                                                         Psalm 119:130

Is a lamp unto your feet and a light unto your path  Psalm 119:105

Secures blessings                                                                              Ephesians 1:3

Dispatches angels                                                                           Psalm 103:20

All of God’s goodness belongs to you when you are in Christ; so enjoy!

Who are You in Christ?

The Lord loves you with an everlasting love and has promised to give you a future and a hope. With loving kindness, He has drawn you to Himself.  It is through this love that He has called you to be His dear child.

God’s love toward you is patient and kind. His love will never fail. His love for you is so rich that He gave His only begotten Son. You now have an unbreakable, eternal covenant with Him:

  • You are born again by the Spirit of God.                             John 3: 3-6
  • You are a child of God; God is spiritually your Father.                                                                                                                                      Romans 8: 14,15
  • You are God’s workmanship , created in Christ for good works.                                                                                                                    Ephesians 2: 10
  • You are a member of Christ’s body.                        1 Corinthians 3:16
  • You are a friend of Christ.                                                            John 15: 15
  • You are chosen and ordained by Christ to bear fruit.  John 15: 16
  • You are the salt of the earth.                                                 Matthew 5:13
  • You are the light of the world.                                           Matthew 5: 14
  • You are a recipient of every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ.                                                                             Ephesians 1:3
  • You are a new creation in Christ; old things have passed away and all things have become new.                                          Corinthians 5: 17

The Lord is the strength of your life.

Nothing can separate you from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus, your Lord. You are not under any guilt or condemnation.  Romans 8:1  Refuse discouragement because it is not of God.  God is a God of encouragement.  You flee from temptation in Christ. James 4:7 But if you do sin, you have an advocate with the Father, 1 John 2:2 who is Jesus Christ. Confess your sins and forsake them. God is just to forgive and cleanse you.

Because Christ has set you free, you are free indeed.        Romans 8:2  You have been delivered out of the domain of darkness and you now abide in the Kingdom of God. God has not given you a spirit of fear but of love, of power, and of a sound mind.                         2 Timothy 1:7

He will make your path straight.

Because Christ dwells within you, you know wisdom and instruction. When you lack wisdom, ask in faith and it is given to you generously. James 1:5 Jesus will make His words of wisdom known to you. Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding. In all of your ways, acknowledge Him, and He will make your path straight.                                                                 Proverbs 3: 5,6

God knows what you need even before you ask.

“Seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all the things that you need will be added onto you” Matthew 6:33 for God knows what you need even before you ask.  The Lord will give you grace and glory. No good thing will He withhold from you as you walk uprightly. Psalm 84:11 Jesus came so that you would have life in its abundance.  John 10:10 Grace and peace are multiplied in you through the knowledge of God.                                                        2 Peter 1-2

You are very blessed and favored of God  Genesis 12:2 and you have been called to be a blessing to others. You now have a heart of compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience, you are God’s workmanship, created  for good deeds, which God prepared beforehand that you should walk in them.                        Ephesians 2:10

In Christ, you can do all things, because He strengthens you. You put on the full armor of God. The Lord protects you from all evil; He guard your going out and coming in from this time forth. You are blessed because you trust in Him.

The Lord brings you health and healing.

Praise the Lord with all that is within you and do not forget all of His benefits. Psalm 103:2 Your youth is renewed like the eagle’s. When I cry out, the Lord hears you; He delivers you from all your troubles. The Lord is close to you when you are broken-hearted and save you when you are crushed in spirit.

Because you make the Most High your dwelling — even the Lord, who is your refuge — then no harm will befall you, no disaster will come near your tent. He will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways; they will lift you up in their hands so that you will not strike your foot against the stone.                Psalm 91:9-12

Because you love the Lord, He will rescue and protect you from all accident, harm, sickness, and disease. He is with you in trouble and delivers you. With long life, He satisfies you and shows you His salvation.                                                                                            Psalm 91:14-16

Because you believe in Him, you will live for all eternity.

Okay Dummies, here is a little quiz:

God was asked, “What does a million years seem to You?”                                           Answer: A second!                     

God was then asked, “What does a million dollars seem to You?”                            Answer: A penny!

HEALING NEEDS DELIVERANCE 2

 HEALING AND DELIVERANCE

There is a relationship between healing and the need for deliverance. Many are never healed because they have never received deliverance from the spirits that made them sick.

WHAT IS DELIVERANCE?

 

deliverance is

Deliverance is defined as a rescue from bondage or danger. 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

 DO YOU NEED DELIVERANCE?

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 or 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 or the same problems.

Is it imaginable that a man, who had been with Jesus as His disciple, should betray Him to the high priest and have Him arrested and tortured and killed. This disciple was Judas Iscariot.

He arranged everything to have Jesus arrested. He should have known that as God, Jesus knew everything that he was doing. This is why at the Last Supper, before Jesus consecrated the bread and wine, He announced that there was one present who would betray Him. None of the other Apostles knew about this but of course Judas knew because he had already started planning all this.

Judas is an example of a person who is possessed by the devil who leads him to betray his Saviour and Lord. In fact he had been a betrayer from the beginning because he used to steal money from the moneybag. 

Healing DeliveranceDeliverance

How many of the following characteristics describe your life?

  • Insecurity? Yet God has not given you a spirit of fear, but of power, love and a sound mind?                                                    Timothy 1:7
  • Inadequacy? Why should I fell like a failure when I am a conqueror in all things through Christ?                              Romans 8:37          
  • Guilt? Why should I feel condemned when I am in Christ?                                                                                                                                    Romans 8:1
  • Worry? Yet why should I worry and fret when I can cast all my anxiety on Christ who cares for me?                                       1 Peter 5:7
  • Doubt? Why should I be confused when God is the author of peace and He gives me knowledge through His indwelling Spirit?                                                                                        1 Corinthians 14:33; 2:12
  • Inferiority? Why should I feel worthless when Christ became sin on my behalf, so that I might become the righteousness of God in Him?                                                                                          2 Corinthians 5:21

Perhaps the greatest service performed by trials and tribulations in our lives is to reveal wrong goals:                                                                               Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, 3 because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. 4 Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. James 1:2-4   God’s goal for you is to mature in Christ.

When you align your goals and desires with God’s desires, you will rid your life from a lot of anger, anxiety and depression.

Anxiety signals an uncertain goal, which you have chosen. Depression signals an impossible goal. Anger signals a blocked goal.  We sometimes try to control others, believing that our own self-worth is dependent on other people. In contrast, a godly goal reflects God’s purpose for your life, which does not depend on any people or circumstance. 

Emotions can be like a red light on the dashboard of your car indicating engine problems. To fix the problem, one should not bottle up your feelings too long, because it disrupts the harmony between you and God.

It is equally unwise to lash out and “honestly tell someone off” at the sacrifice of love. Jesus turned over the tables, not the money-changers. The wisest approach is to confide with at least one person with whom you can be emotionally honest.

In reality, we have very little control over our emotions, but we do have control over our thoughts. That is why it is so important to fill our minds with the Word of God, the Bible.

We need to see God’s perspective and respond accordingly. Add to this prayer: it is not a formula; it’s the language of your relationship with God: simply say “Lord, I love You; I believe in You; I trust You”.
