SUFFERING AND 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 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
JESUS WISHES TO SPEAK TO YOU.
Today I am Handing You Life or Death.
“I love you.
I am the Light of the world. Without Me you would walk in the darkness as the people did before I was born. They lived in the kingdom of darkness and they were led by the evil one. It is only if you believe in Me and follow Me that you enter into the Kingdom of Light.
Because many people reject Me today, these people have entered again into the darkness. The darkness of today is worst than previously because I have come and I am present in the world.
Most people if they search for Me can find Me.
There are grave consequences if a person refuses to accept Me. That person rejects salvation and all the graces I have won for him or her. There will be no peace in the heart of that person because peace is a gift from Me.
Do not jeopardize your salvation, My people, for the pleasure that lasts only a short time. Come to Me now and I will accept you.
Repent of all your sins and open your heart to Me. I died for you and I want you close to Me.
Do not think that you can do it on your own. Everyone who tried it has failed. It is absolutely necessary that we work together if you are to make a success of your life in this world and be happy with me forever in the next.
Today I am handing you life or death. It is for you to choose. In choosing me, you will be choosing life. I am waiting for your choice.
Offer all your suffering to Me for the salvation of all the people. You can find meaning to suffering only in the cross. The cross led to resurrection and life. Suffer with Me and you will find salvation.
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.
BILLIONS OF CHRISTIANS CAN' T ALL BE WRONG!
Christianity is not a philosophy, but it is a relationship with God, your Creator, in Christ TODAY. It is not knowledge of abstract principles. How do we know this? Healing takes place TODAY in the Name of Jesus Christ.
Many Christian disciples use the gift of healing. They also use deliverance to deliver away evil spirits influencing people. These evil spirits cause depression, addictions and illness through all forms of stress. Only the Name of Jesus Christ makes healing and deliverance possible.
HOW IS JESUS STILL ALIVE TODAY?
Jesus is alive today! He heals today (through His followers) and in many cases it is realized immediately. How else can you explain the explosion of Christianity, the world's largest religion, on earth: 2.2 billion adherents, nearly a third (31 percent) of all 6.9 billion people on Earth.
Christians know and feel His Presence; they communicate with Him personally; Christian prayers are always answered.
This author has been given the Gift of Healing only because he is a Christian Lay Missionary, who travels two to three places every year. On his last trip to Columbia he successfully transferred his Gift to his Spanish translators, who were able to heal as he did. He has healed Muslims to their great surprise.
He also delivers away evil spirits along with their healing. All those who are delivered from evil spirits feel a complete physical sense of peace.
DREAMS AND VISIONS
God can give a message to those non-Christians to change their heart. God knows faith will be developed eventually. God will come to you in the form of dreams or visions. So be sensitive to any dreams or visions, when you ask God for it earnestly.
HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED HOW TO BECOME A CHRISTIAN?
- Christians don’t shout, “I live a clean life!” Christians whisper “I feel lost, but now God found me and God forgives me.”
- Christians don’t speak with pride. They confess that they stumble and need Christ to be their guide.
- Christians don’t say,” I’m strong.” They say they try to be strong because they need strength.
- Christians don’t brag about success, but they admit that they fail and they need God to clean the mess.
- Christians don’t claim to be perfect, but God still believes in them.
- Christians still feel the sting of pain. They have their share of headaches but they still call upon His Name.
- Christians are not holier than others. They are simple sinners who receive God’s unbelievable Grace.
Christianity on a Table Napkin:
"If you declare with your mouth, 'Jesus is Lord,' and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved." Romans 10:9
|The real Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the Living God. He was send by God to come to the earth in the body of a human being. That was, so that He could suffer in the flesh, and take all our sins upon Himself and die in our place. He rose from the dead and lives to pray for us daily.
|He is the Savior – The angel announced to Mary; ...and you shall call His name JESUS: for He shall save His people from their sins. Matthew 1:21 It means He has the power to free us, save us and deliver us from sin. He is merciful and has the power to forgive. He brings good news to the poor, heals the heart-broken, announce freedom to all captives, pardons all prisoners. He comforts mourners. He has healing in His hands.
|To receive Jesus as your Savior... SAY:
Lord Jesus, You are the Christ, the Son of the Living God. Please hear me today and help me! I want to receive You as my Lord and Savior. Be Lord of my life! Lord Jesus, I believe that You died for me and that God raised You from the dead. Forgive me all my sins and take all my sins away. Come into my heart and be my Savior and Lord, and fill me with Your Holy Spirit. Amen
Your life will begin to change in an amazing way. Without expecting anything, be sensitive to any dreams or visions.
God the Father will wipe every tear from our eyes, and there shall be no more death or mourning, crying out or pain. We will be like Him, for we will see Him as He is The Holy Spirit will have made all things new. Eternal joy will begin. “For the Mighty One has done great things for me— holy is His name." Luke 1: 49
Are we not like Barabbas who was justly condemned for murder, but saved by the innocent Jesus on the cross? Are we not like the adulterous woman, deserving of death by stoning, to whom Jesus says, "I do not condemn you"? And Jesus saved them both. In fact, Jesus came to earth specifically to look for and save those who were lost, like you.
“Come now, let us settle the matter,” says the LORD, “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool". Isaiah 1:18
You may need some counseling with a pastor, priest or competent Christian worker, who will introduce you to a Short Course on Who is Jesus? Start by reading a short biography of Jesus in the Gospel of Luke. Read several verses before going to bed and read the same verse upon arising. He will defend you from attacks of the enemy when you ask Him.
