ASK FOR A NEW PENTECOST

A NEW PENTECOST

NEW PENTECOST

 

Ask for a New Pentecost; this inspiration descends from Wisdom, and the New Pentecost, I, the Lord, will establish on the very grounds of My Foundation; I will unite you all and under One Shepherd you will assemble, creation, and I will establish My Kingdom therein; My House will reign in Peace and Love and My creation will be born again, returning like children, innocent, without malice; this will be the Great Return, the Rebirth, the Call of the Shepherd, the New Pentecost, like in the beginning when Christianity was still at its early stages, an infant, innocent, without self-interest; ah creation! just wait and see.”                                                                                                                 March 13, 1988

VASSULA UNITY

Vassula writes down the messages which she receives in a stately handwriting, quite distinct from her own.   She hears, interiorly, a voice first, then , when she has to write down what she has heard, her writing changes.                                                                                  TLIG.org

“Pray for the redemption of souls, pray for the World Council of Churches, pray for the Great Return; your era is dead, pray for the renewal of your era, for its rebirth, for a New Era.”

“Take My Hand, Peter, and I will guide you; hear My cry, assemble your Eastern brothers, call them to meet Me under My roof; assemble your Eastern brothers into My Foundation; call them before Me; how I desire this Unity! Peter? Peter, if you listen to Me I will summon all nations under My roof; I will sanctify them, renewing them all; I will pour from heaven My dew of Righteousness like rain and My Garden will embellish; I will fill up your storages from My Storages; listen, Peter, to My Voice; My Kingdom is at your very doors; My Kingdom is among you, how is it that you do not recognize it?”

“In a very short time She (the Church) will be renewed, transfigured and resurrected as I, the Lord, was Resurrected; She will no longer lie in this deplorable state; My enemies had destroyed My Temple, but with My Power descending from Above and with My Grace, I, the Lord, rebuilt My Temple in just three days;                                                                            I promise you that My Church will revive and I will have Her renewed and transfigured as I was Transfigured.”                                                                     “My Heavens will shake the earth and all those who love Me will glorify Me, bending their knee, and many will remember Me and return to Me; this will be known as the Great Conversion of the Church.”                                                                                                                                             August 16, 1988

All are My Churches they are all Mine, they all belong to Me and Me only, I am the Church, I am the Head of the Church. You can come to God in any church: God doesn’t make any distinctions like the others; they all belong to Me; I am One God and have One Body, a Body which they have lamed; millstones have damaged My Body.”     June 10, 1987

Scripture says: God does not have favorites, but that anybody of any nationality who fears God and does what is right is acceptable to Him; but men have divided themselves, they have segregated themselves under My Holiness; but wait and you shall see; My Holy Spirit (to the great astonishment of many) shall be poured on the pagans too.”                                                                                                                                  March 25, 1991

NEW PENTECOST

Pray for this renewal of My Church, pray that the Gospels are fully understood and that those parts that have been hacked out, be returned; pray, My child, that My Church be United and garbed in Her Garments-of-Old; pray for all the misinterpretations given to you now from My Word, to cease; these misinterpretations are like poisonous food for you, My Food is Pure and Whole; pray for My sacerdotal to understand fully My Ways and the way I truly am; they still have not understood Me, pray that they may be enlightened.”                                                                                                                                                          August 25, 1988

“Do not be like those who persist in differentiating themselves under My Holy Name; do not be like those who pretend that Unity is appealing to them and remain dead to their word achieving nothing but a resentment from the Father; both the Father and I abhor their arguments, contrary to what they think; yet nothing retains Me from crying out to these men of power:

Descend! Descend from your thrones and may these scales on your eyes fall to see what a desolation you have made out of My House! You have robbed My Sanctuary and all that was within it! You shattered the Shepherd’s staff not only in half but in splinters!”

“I will have My House rebuilt by strangers, for in them I will place a spirit of zeal, a spirit of fidelity; then your stores will be filled again and your vats overflowing with My new wine.”                    October 13, 1991

JESUS WISHES TO SPEAK TO YOU.

NEW PENTECOST

    This New Dawn is Now Upon You.

“I love you.

You know that Lucifer was a great angel in heaven. The Father had created him good and his duty was to serve Him. He rebelled against God and wanted to make himself equal to the Father. He was filled with pride and refused to serve His Creator. Many other angels followed him.

The great day came when the Archangel Michael strengthened with the power of God drove Lucifer and all his followers out of heaven. They were thrown into hell but they could roam the earth to tempt the people.

Many people, even some who had been My friends for a time, let themselves be influenced by him and turned against God and even helped the devil in his work. They have brought wars, scandals and all kinds of horrible crimes into the world. The devil and his followers want to erase My name from the hearts of the people. They want to accomplish on earth what they could not accomplish in heaven. What a great day it was when heaven was freed from this cancer and peace returned.

The Holy Spirit is about to come upon the earth in the New Pentecost with the result that Satan and all the evil spirits will be chained. They will not roam freely anymore. A new era is about to begin.

See, this new dawn is now upon you. All will know that I am the Savior of the world. I defeated Satan on the cross and brought redemption to you all. Now Satan will be completely defeated.

Let love and peace reign among all the people of the world. May you all pursue holiness with the help of My grace. I bless you all.”

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.

AMAZING GLORY of the HOLY SPIRIT

SEARCH OF LOST CHRISTIAN UNITY

HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED HOW TO BECOME A CHRISTIAN?

 

CHRISTIAN UNITY

  • Christians don’t shout, “I am clean living!” They whisper “I was lost, but now I’m found and forgiven.” 
  • Christians don’t speak of this with pride. They confess that they stumble and need Christ to be their guide.
  • Christians don’t say,” I’m strong.” They say they are trying to be strong because they are really weak and need strength. 
  • Christians don’t brag of success, but they admit that they are failing and they need God to clean up the mess.
  • Christians don’t claim to be perfect. Their flaws are far too visible but God believes they are worth it.
  • Christians still feel the sting of pain and they have their share of headaches but they call upon His Name.
  • Christians are not holier than thou. They are also 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, 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 Saviour – 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 heartbroken, announce freedom to all captives, pardons all prisoners. He comforts mourners. He has healing in His wings.
If you are not yet received Jesus as your Saviour… 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 Saviour. 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 Saviour and Lord, and fill me with Your Holy Spirit. Amen

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 have begun.  “For the Mighty One has done great things for me— holy is His name.”                                       Luke 1: 49

Are we not like Barabbas 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.

“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 this Short Course on Who is Jesus? Start by reading the Gospel according to John: It is all about love and you will love it. Read several verses before going to bed and read the same verse upon arising. Soaking yourself in the love of God defends you from attacks of the enemy

JEHOVAH’S WITNESS EDUCATION

JEHOVAH’S WITNESS EDUCATION
JEHOVAH’S WITNESS EDUCATION

The view that higher education is spiritually dangerous is very common among Witnesses. Witness leadership also discourages higher education because they believe it’s a waste of time. Jehovah’s Witnesses have been predicting the end of the world since the religion’s founding at the end of the 19th century. By their rationale, time in college would be better spent out on the streets, converting persons to become Witnesses.

Watchtower organization doesn’t discourage education, but rather secular education. Higher education is supposedly spiritually dangerous. The most intelligent and eloquent professors will be trying to reshape the thinking of your child, and their influence can be tremendous. Continual association with non-believers in an academic setting can “erode thinking and convictions.”

Jehovah’s Witnesses are encouraged to make their preaching work the top priority in their life. Higher education is discouraged, based on their belief that it is futile to plan for secular advancement in a world that faces imminent destruction, as well as fears about succumbing to “worldly thinking” and concerns that advanced education might lead to a lack of humility or involvement in immorality. Because evangelistic activities take priority over educational success, young Witnesses rarely progress to college or university, which Holden (1.) describes as a source of regret in subsequent years among those who are raised in the organization and later choose to leave.

JEHOVAH’S WITNESS EDUCATION
JEHOVAH’S WITNESS EDUCATION

Watch Tower Society publications advise parents to recommend alternatives to university education for their children, suggesting associate degrees from community or technical colleges or short courses in subjects such as office administration, automotive repair, computing, or hairdressing. They urge young Witnesses to pursue higher education only to gain skills to obtain a reasonable living while maintaining flexibility to pursue their “true” vocation, serving God.

Author James Penton’s (2) major study of the Witnesses, Apocalypse Delayed, noted that of those Witnesses who do progress to university, few are likely to take studies in such areas as the humanities and the social sciences, “disciplines that are most threatening to the Witness world-view”.

Jehovah’s Witnesses provide religious training programs for their members, focusing on improving skills for their ministry. These include School for Kingdom Evangelizers. Some of these programs are by invitation only. Holden (1.)observed: “Despite the fact that Witnesses claim to reason from the scriptures, their theology is taught in a highly mechanistic fashion, and written publications encourage the members to learn almost by rote.”

The lack of higher education can translate into more tangible problems for Witnesses. Pew research also shows that Jehovah’s Witnesses are among the lowest earners of any religious group.

PERSONAL TESTIMONY

Leaving the faith at 18 changed my life completely. I went to university, where I made even more friends who showed me that being in the “world” is completely fine, and that debate and discussion is also OK. I began a life where constantly questioning and improving my beliefs and ideas and always being open to those of others were my only constant doctrines. I began a life where I could decide what to believe for myself, and I wasn’t afraid of someone telling me I couldn’t.

DEFECTION

Jehovah’s Witness doctrines provide no method for baptized members to leave on good terms. Those who choose to depart and announce their decision to terminate their membership are regarded as voluntarily entering the world of Satan. 

Watch Tower publications define such individuals as being “more reprehensible than those in the world” and direct that they are to be shunned by other Witnesses, including close relatives, with no social or religious contact and no greeting given. Sociologist Andrew Holden claims his research indicated many Witnesses who would otherwise defect because of disillusionment with the organization and its teachings remain affiliated out of fear of being shunned and losing contact with friends and family members.

D-GRADE CHARITY

JEHOVAH’S WITNESS EDUCATION
JEHOVAH’S WITNESS EDUCATION

While we are using our magnifying glass on Witnesses, we observe the Jehovah’s Witnesses are one of Canada’s wealthiest and least transparent charities. CHARITY INTELLIGENCE, an agency that monitors charities for Canadian donors, gives the group a D-grade because they do not provide details on how donations are spent. “Jehovah’s Witnesses have a one star rating out of five stars. That should be a red flag to donors. That should also be red flag to government.”

TEACHINGS OF JEHOVAH’S WITNESSES

Jehovah’s Witnesses are taught that all other Christian churches represent renegade Christendom, and only the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society (which is the spiritual leadership of the Jehovah’s Witnesses) can be trusted.

AUTHORITY

The Bible describes how the apostles could pass on their authority to future bishops: Let another person take over his work.”Act 1:20 Why should we believe

(1) that the Catholic Church lost its God-given authority to interpret Scripture and proclaim doctrine and

(2) that the Watchtower is God’s official organization on Earth with his authority to interpret Scripture? How does one know that Jesus has given the Watchtower special authority?                                                         You Will Know Them by Their Fruits                                 Matthew 7:16

Why did Watchtower teach the following?

  1. Taught that the world would come to an end in 1914.[6]
  2. Said this was a miscalculation and the world would actually end in 1915.[7]
  3. Said the patriarchs Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob would be resurrected when the world would end in 1925.[8]
  4. Strongly hinted that the end of the world would come in 1975.[9]

Jehovah witness deceptionIn 1995 stopped printing the following message about the end of the world in its magazine Awake!: “[T]his magazine builds confidence in the Creator’s promise of a peaceful and secure world before the generation that saw the events of 1914 passes away.”Deuteronomy 18:22 states that a person is not a prophet if he makes a prediction that fails to come to pass.

If God were really guiding the Watchtower, then why would he allow his “spirit-led” organization to lead so many people into error about the end of the world? The simplest answer to these questions is that men, not God, guide the Watchtower, and so it should not be trusted with our eternal salvation.

6.  “We see no reason for changing the figures nor could we change them if we would. They are, we believe, God’s dates, not ours. But bear in mind that the end of 1914 is not the date for the beginning, but for the end of the time of trouble.” Zion’s Watch Tower (July 15 1894) p.226. Over time the Watchtower started teaching that the world began to end in 1914, not that it was going to end in 1914 (even though this contradicts the Watchtower’s assertion that 1914 was not the beginning of anything but the end).

Jehovah's Witnesses

7.  This miscalculation was due to confusion over whether there was a year “zero.” Russell wrote, “In view of this strong Bible evidence concerning the Times of the Gentiles, we consider it an established truth that the final end of the kingdoms of this world, and the full establishment of the Kingdom of God, will be accomplished near the end of A.D. 1915.” Charles Taze Russell”The Time Is At Hand” Studies In the Scriptures Series II (1915) 99, 101, 242.

8.  “Therefore we may confidently expect that 1925 will mark the return of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and the faithful prophets of old, particularly those named by the Apostle in Hebrews 11, to the condition of human perfection.” Joseph Rutherford, Millions Now Living Will Never Die (Brooklyn, NY: International Bible Students Association, 1920) 89-90.

9.  “Whatever the date for the end of this system, it is clear that the time left is reduced, with only approximately six years left until the end of 6,000 years of human history.” The Watchtower (May 1, 1970) 273.

10.  ‘When a prophet speaks in the name of the LORD, if the word does not come to pass or come true, that is a word which the LORD has not spoken; the prophet has spoken it presumptuously, you need not be afraid of him.”                                             Deuteronomy 18:22

We need solid proof for their claim to divine authority. Jehovah’s Witnesses certainly do not appeal to any miraculous intervention from God as proof. Continue reading JEHOVAH’S WITNESS EDUCATION

COMMON TO ALL RELIGIONS

COMMON TO ALL FAITHS
COMMON TO ALL FAITHS

MOST OF THE MAJOR FAITHS HAVE SOMETHING IN COMMON.

Most of the major faiths include the idea of a higher level of consciousness, which is called a union with God; this is the ultimate goal of most spiritual practices. All major religions with the exception of the strictest form of Buddhism (Theravada Buddhism) teach:

  1. That there is a God who is not a person, but who created the cosmos and who is definitely personal.
  2. That it is possible to know and to experience union with this personal God.
  3. That the entire purpose of life is to seek to do so in order to experience God
COMMON TO ALL FAITHS

CHRISTIANITY IS DIFFERENT.

Christianity is different from other kinds of God-mysticism. We become fellow-heirs” with Christ and “fellow workers” with God until one day we will see God face to face.

  • Not many religions offer a Leader who chose to live with us and show us how to attain the reward of everlasting life.
  • Not many religions offer a God in the form of the Holy Spirit who fills our lives with divine grace in extraordinary ways: what some would think only as coincidence or good fortune.
  • Not many religions offer happiness, forever, as a prize for following a few laws
  • Not many religions throw life jackets to those floundering in a sea of frustration, sin, contradiction and evil.
  • Not many religions offer light in the darkness and a trail out of the wilderness.
  • Not many religions offer peace.

STEALING FROM GOD

GOD WILL BLESS YOU!

“Should people cheat God? Yet you have cheated Me!

 “You have cheated Me of the tithes and offerings due to Me. Bring all the tithes (and) “I will open the windows of heaven for you. I will pour out a blessing so great you won’t have enough room to take it in!” Try it! Put Me to the test! Malachi 3:8, 10

This refers to living consistently in the blessing of God, not just a one shot healing.

Healing is a free gift, but we must fulfill the conditions that God sets out including releasing your finances to Him. You have to give to God what is rightly His. You cannot rob from God and expect Him to consistently heal you.

So you say that this biblical reference comes only from the Old Testament. Yet, the New Testament goes even further in the Acts of the Apostle, where Jesus asks a young man to sell everything he had and follow Him.

MORMONS MISSING JESUS

Missing the Relationship with Jesus

Most Christians would miss their relationship with Jesus if they joined the Mormon Church. Jesus is the One who heals: there would be no more healing! Jesus is the One who delivers away evil spirits. There would be no more deliverance!

“Mormons say in their presentation that Jesus is our “eldest brother.”  Christians believe that Jesus is our Lord and God and that He is co-equal and co-eternal with the Father. Mormons believe, in contrast, that the Father created Jesus and so they don’t pray to Jesus. 

Paul can ask Christ to comfort us, then why shouldn’t we pray to Jesus? Why would I join a Church that discourages praying to the eternal, all-powerful, and one and only Son of God?              John 1:18

Paul said, “May our Lord Jesus Christ Himself and God our Father . . . comfort your hearts and strengthen them in every good work and word,”                                                                                    2 Thessalonians 2:16-17

MORMONS MISSING JESUS

Differences between Christianity and Mormonism

Christians and Mormons use the same words such as grace, faith, God and sin; they mean very different things by them. For example, as it pertains to faith, Alma 32:17 says, “Yea, there are many who do say: If thou wilt show unto us a sign from heaven, then we shall know of a surety; then we shall believe. Now I ask, is this faith? “Those who think they know something do not yet know as they ought to know.” 1 Corinthians 8:2 In other words, faith involves believing something we do not know. If we knew it, there would be no need for faith.

IS GOD THERE?

There is an intellectual atheism based on modern philosophy; a protest atheism, which insisted on the incompatibility of belief in God with human freedom and fulfillment; and a pessimistic atheism, which sees in the enormity of evil prevalent in the world an overwhelming argument against the existence of God.

As a Gallup poll of 1975 shows, in only 6 percent of all Americans questioned claimed to be atheists or agnostics; 94 percent believed in God and 69 percent in life after death — about the same percentages as in 1948.

But while many pay lip service to the existence of God, it seems true that many have experienced the death of God insofar as traditional images of God no longer make sense for them. They feel God’s absence, rather than His presence.

In the last century, God dwelt there with hosts of angels and directed earthly affairs: bringing good and bad weather, sickness and health, happiness and unhappiness.

After being gradually undermined for several years by accumulating scientific knowledge, this cozy picture has all but vanished from human consciousness.

If we can’t think of God, then, as some kind of absolute monarch ruling the universe from above, how should we think of Him?

Allow us to speak of an ultimate reality that is somehow “beyond” that which is directly given in our experience and our own ultimate limit.

All of us are constantly running up against limits, which are basically of four kinds: a) external physical limitation caused by material objects which can restrict our activities; b ) organic limitations we experience when we suffer illness, weakness and exhaustion; c ) personal limitations in our dealings with others insofar as their ideas and intentions often run counter to our own ; d ) restrictions related to our awareness of moral and aesthetic considerations such as the distinction between good and bad, beautiful and ugly.

Through this experience of our own finiteness we become aware.

How, then, can we conceptualize this ultimate limit?

The only experience we have is of our bare finiteness.

An encounter with God will involve both the ‘experience’ of our finitude and the faith which, points to some dynamic reality beyond the limit.

God as the ultimate limit, God as He is Himself, is thus profound mystery, which is completely beyond our grasp or comprehension.

Only on the ground that God had in fact revealed himself could it be claimed He exists.

The One Who is Creator of the world, Who by His providence guides and sustains and directs all things to their intended purpose. “God” means the Lord, the One Whom we must serve and obey,

He is our final End and Source of eternal happiness. He is also the Father Who loves His children, faithful, forgiving and at the same time absolutely just.

For the believer, He is the most real of all:

A believer finds in the symbol “God” the means of seeing life as a purposeful experience and a way of viewing the world as imbued with a personal presence. It enables one to feel at home in the world insofar as it is ruled with order and purpose.

As long as one stays on a purely metaphysical or speculative level it seems impossible that we will ever be able to answer this question with any certainty.

From Dynamic Catholicism: A Historical Catechism Bokenkotter, Thomas.

WHAT IS RELIGION?

Religion is man’s search: for strength and courage to be gained from the spiritual, which is greater than any individual man. It is the Power beyond our control and upon whom we feel ourselves dependent.

The mind and will of God exists outside man, which is superior to all men. Man attempts to get in touch with His spirituality. Once contact is made (by listening) man desires to live in harmony with God. This contact operates by grace and flourishes by prayer.

THE MYSTERY OF RELIGION

Religion deals not in problems but in mysteries. A mystery may be difficult or impossible to understand, but you are still passionate about and involved in.

Such passionate makes clear, objective thinking difficult, and being involved in a problem means one’s perspective is limited. One way to solve such mysteries is to rely on faith.

A DIVINE CHURCH

Suppose the Church were not divine but only human. Suppose she were our invention. Suppose the Church, unlike Christ, had only one nature, not two: that she was only human, not divine, and as “modernist” or “liberal” or “humanist” theology claims about Christ.

In that case we ourselves would have to figure out the right understanding of scripture, without divine authority. We would have to discover the truth about the Trinity, and the two natures of Christ, and baptism, and the Eucharist, and saints, and Mary, and Purgatory, and the Church herself, and crucial and controversial moral issues like abortion and marriage and homosexuality and euthanasia and contraception and war and capital punishment and money.

Under this supposition, who could ever know with certainty the will of God? And how could the Church ever be one? There are actually twenty thousand different churches or ten main-line protestant denominations, each teaching its own sincere but fallible human opinion. It is hard to believe that God would want His Church to split into so many pieces.

You Can’t Just Be Spiritual; You Need Religion.

 DIVINE CHURCH

Many people say, “I’m spiritual, but not religious.” On one hand, you can be happy that you are seeking a deeper meaning in their life. On the other hand, you should be worried that you will stay satisfied there. Spirituality is what you believe and how you find meaning in regards to a higher Power while religion is how I live out the truth and what is right in regards to a higher Power. In religion:

  1. We can gain an intimate knowledge of Christ.
  2. We are better protected from evil so as not to misinterpret Scriptures.
  3. We need a Christian community for encouragement and support.

religion spirituality

ONE CHRISTIAN GOD

We Christians (of all flavors) are under greater attack now that at many or most times in the past, from atheists, secularists, Islamists and others. It would therefore seem to be in our best interests to put aside whatever our differences are or have been in the past and try our best to become what Jesus asked for…that we may all be one.

Even if all religions are true, even profoundly true, this does not mean that all religions are totally true (free from error) or equally true. For only one religion centers on the only sane man who ever claimed to be the TRUTH.

ONE DIVINE CHURCH

No other religious teacher – except some egomaniacs, fakers, tyrants and money-mad manipulators – claimed to be God. Any other religion except Christianity could survive without its founder after making such a claim.

 If Abraham or Moses or Muhammad or Buddha or Confucius or Lao Tzu turned out to be mythical figures and not real historical people at all, the religions that they founded would still survive, just as Shakespeare’s plays would still retain their power and appeal if it were discovered that Shakespeare never existed, that the name was a pseudonym for Marlowe or Bacon. But Christianity could not survive if Christ was a fictional figure. You can’t be saved by a fictional or a dead savior.”

HAVE YOU BEEN HURT BY A CHURCH?

The Church often wounds us deeply. People with religious authority often wound us by their words, attitudes, and demands. Precisely because our religion brings us in touch with the questions of life and death, our religious sensibilities can get hurt most easily. Ministers and priests seldom fully realize how a critical remark, a gesture of rejection, or an act of impatience can be remembered for life by those to whom it is directed.

There is such an enormous hunger for meaning in life, for comfort and consolation, for forgiveness and reconciliation, for restoration and healing, that anyone who has any authority in the Church should constantly be reminded that the best word to characterize religious authority is compassion. Let’s keep looking at Jesus whose authority was expressed in compassion.

When we have been wounded by the Church, our temptation is to reject it. But when we reject the Church it becomes very hard for us to keep in touch with the living Christ. When we say, “I love Jesus, but I hate the Church,” we end up losing not only the Church but Jesus too.

The challenge is to forgive the Church. This challenge is especially great because the Church seldom asks us for forgiveness, at least not officially. But the Church as an often fallible human organization needs our forgiveness, while the Church as the living Christ among us continues to offer us forgiveness.

It is important to think about the Church not as “over there” but as a community of struggling, weak people of whom we are part and in whom we meet our Lord and Redeemer.                  HENRI NOUWEN

ASTONISHING PREDICTIONS

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

DIVINE OR HUMAN CALIPHS

The Old Testament indicates another 40 astonishing predictions.

CHINA DECEASED RELATIVES

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

CHINA AND THE HOLY SPIRIT

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

Christianity and Hinduism Differences

BILLIONS OF CHRISTIANS CAN’ T ALL BE WRONG!

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

GOD’S HEALING ASSURED

 HEALING?

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

AN EXPERIMENT OF GOD’S TOUCH 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.

REAL HELL EXPERIENCE

Hell experience

THREE CATEGORIES OF HELL EXPERIENCE

The problem of evil exists in every single world-view and religious tradition. The devil really has no power over us unless we give it to him. Jesus identified these demons: “You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.”                                                              John 8:44

When we die, unfortunately all our choices become eternal. They have eternal ramifications.

There are three categories of experiences that (Near Death Experience) NDEs have experienced:

HELL EXPERIENCE

  1. HELL ON EARTH: it was like a great battlefield. Everywhere people were locked in what looked like fights to the death, writhing, punching, gouging… “”And throw that worthless servant outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.”                                                                      Matthew 25:30
  2. THE PIT being trapped in a dark cave accompanied by a putrid smell like feces, sulfur or death in extreme cold or extreme heat and even fire. The demons resembled humans but they were ugly and grotesque.
  3. THE VOID: described as a falling experience through outer darkness. “It became horrific, no feeling, no sensation, no sense of light. Underground laborers, performed some endless, brutally monotonous task. “I saw hell, and I’m not going back. I want to find the God that pulled me out of hell.”

WHAT IS A BLESSING?

WHAT IS A BLESSING?When we invoke God’s blessing, we implore His divine beneficence, trusting that He will respond to our needs. He will cause situations to come together in your favor, no matter what others try to do.

The Lord said to Moses, “Bless the people of Israel with this special Blessing. Whenever (you) bless the people … in My name, I Myself will bless them.”                                                                            Numbers 6:23, 27

“May the Lord bless you
    and protect you.                                                                                    

May the Lord smile on you
    and be gracious to you.
May the Lord show you His favor
    
and give you His peace.”                       Numbers 6:24-26

THE 10 NEAR-DEATH EXPERIENCES

NEAR-DEATH EXPERIENCES

This evidence is so substantial that it merits at least some investigation. 

Even 80 percent of blind people claim to see deceased relatives and friends encountered in “another world” after bodily death.

NEAR DEATH EXPERIENCE

Our Near Death Experiences showed us that God has prepared a future for you filled with more exhilaration and excitement. It will be the most breathtaking beauty, more love and depth with friends and family than you have ever experienced on earth.

Then I saw “a new heaven and a new earth,” for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away …He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’ or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” Revelation 21:1, 4

How did hundreds of people — doctors, airline pilots, bank presidents , tenured professors– who didn’t need to make up wild stories to make money (and would lose professional credibility doing so),  describe such an amazing similar place.

The prophets like Isaiah were told by God that the new Heaven and new earth will have similarities to the beauty of the present earth, but restored and improved:

“See, I will create
    new heavens and a new earth.
The former things will not be remembered,
    nor will they come to mind.
But be glad and rejoice forever
    in what I will create,
for I will create Jerusalem to be a delight
    and its people a joy.

They will build houses and dwell in them;
    they will plant vineyards and eat their fruit.

Before they call I will answer;
    while they are still speaking I will hear.
 The wolf and the lamb will feed together,
    and the lion will eat straw like the ox,
    and dust will be the serpent’s food.
They will neither harm nor destroy
    on all my holy mountain,”
says the Lord.:”                                            Isaiah 65:17,18;24,25

God tells Isaiah His Holy City will be a place of beauty and joy, with plants and trees, vineyards and fruit, mountains and valleys, where all the creatures finally will live in harmony — as we intuitively know it should be.

TO EAT JESUS’ BODY?

The Real Presence

The Early Christians actually took the Real Presence for granted. It doesn’t even seem as if there was much debate. No one denied the Real Presence of Our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament before the year 500 A.D. The reason for this is that the Bible is very clear on the subject.

’Take, eat, this is My body.’ Then He took the cup and gave thanks. He gave it to them and said, ‘You must all drink from it. This is My blood of the New Way of Worship which is given for many.’”                                                                                                                         Matthew 26: 27, 28

Real Presence

“For My flesh is true food,” Jesus told his disciples and the others listening to Him, “and My blood is true drink.”                      John 6:55 

Anyone who eats the bread or drinks from the cup, if his spirit is not right with the Lord, will be guilty of sinning against the body and the blood of the Lord.  This is why a man should look into his own heart and life before eating the bread and drinking from the cup.  Anyone who eats the bread and drinks from the cup, if his spirit is not right with the Lord, will be guilty as he eats and drinks. He does not understand the meaning of the Lord’s body.”                                                                                                                        1 Corinthians 11:27-29

The wording in the Bible is very strong and hard to refute: why would anyone be “guilty of sinning “ if it was just a casual sharing of communion.

So when a group of evangelist suggest having communion, something seems wrong. They don’t know that it is all about the Real Presence.

Catholics believe Jesus is uniquely present in the Eucharist.  But how can this be?

Catholics believe that the same divine word in Christ that had the power to heal, raise people from the dead and forgive sins, could also change bread and wine into his body and blood. They believe that they are in close contact with Him and His Presence affects us (grace).

We can even go deeper in our explanation by saying it is the new manna, the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ, which is supernatural food (grace) given for supernatural life (our soul). It is, as Paul says,” participation in the blood and body of Christ.” 1 Corinthians 10:16

JESUS WISHES TO SPEAK TO YOU.
