Watch as a woman with a poisoned and scabbed body is instantly healed by Jesus!

Warning!  Graphic images.  Not for the faint of heart.  Watch with discretion.

How To Be Healed

Q: Since we can’t run up to Jesus and ask him to heal us like people did in the Bible how do we ask Him for healing today?

A: ASK Jesus. Matthew 7:7-8

Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened for you. 8 For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.

Ask – Verbally ask him in prayer, out loud or in writing.

Seek – Seek out the answer. Look around, go on a quest and do research.

Knock – The LORD is telling us to do something not just sit around.

I’ve been one sick puppy. Diagnosed with the mysterious fibromialgia, horribly severe acne and rosacea, depression, sleep disorder, anxiety, ADD and sensitive teeth. Fibromialgia pain is real! I remember waking up with throbbing pain in my sternum, back, shoulders and joints. It was inconsistent pain that moved around. Five minutes of pain in one area then it left and appeared in another area. Sometimes pain woke me up and other times I couldn’t sleep because of it. After a while, pain meds and antidepressants stopped working so I got desperate enough to believe that God would heal me. Then He did!

Q: How?

A: 1st I read every scripture in the Bible that I could find having to do with healing. There’s a lot. I read it out loud every day.

Proverbs 4:20-22 My child, pay attention to my words; listen attentivelyto my sayings. 21 Do not let them departfrom your sight, guardthem within your heart; 22 for they are life to those who find them and healing to one’s entire body.

2nd On my way to work while sitting in traffic, alone in my car I literally screamed, “Please heal me Jesus!”

Psalms 30:2 O Lord my God, I cried out to you and you healed me.

3rd When I caught myself thinking negative thoughts and saying negative words I changed them into positives. “I’ll always be sick. I can’t get better, I’m too far gone. Does God want me to be healthy?” Became; “I am healed. Got brought back the dead so he can heal me. Jesus never turned away anyone who asked to be healed so He wants me healthy.”

Proverbs 12:18 Speaking recklesslyis like the thrusts of a sword, but the wordsof the wise bringhealing.

4th I took my meds, improved my eating habits and got counseling for trauma that happened in the past. I learned from therapy that the mind-body connection is in the basal ganglia. Not that I really understand that but when we experience emotional pain it turns into physical pain until we deal with it.

Ezekiel 47:12 And on the banks, on both sides of the river, there will grow all kinds of trees for food. Their leaves will not whither, nor their fruit fail, but they will bear fresh fruit every month, because the water for them flows from the sanctuary. Their fruit will be for food, and their leaves for healing.

5th I give thanks to God for all His healing.

Luke 17:15 Then one of them, when he saw he was healed, turned back, praisingGod with a loud voice.

Healing takes time. We’ve been taught to think that God will only heal us instantly and if we’re not healed instantly then we’re not healed. Not true. Some of us are healed instantly and for the rest healing takes time. Both are miraculous.

Isaiah 53:5 He was wounded because of our rebellious deeds, crushed because of our sins; he endured punishment that made us well;because of his wounds we have been healed.

Then There’s Max

Several years ago, I saw and heard Max Lucado speak.  I had never heard of him before but I went with some people who read his books and heard him talk.  After hearing him I have no regrets and I’ll jump at the next opportunity.

Max Lucado wasn’t preachy or showy nor did he make himself the center of attention.  The building where I saw him was big but not a ginormous professional basketball stadium.  If there were cameras I never saw them, he did not take center stage but actually stood off to the left most of the time.  The experience was not a noise extravaganza with people cheering and screaming, not that there’s anything wrong with that, it was a simple and comfortable environment.  No razzle dazzle.

Lucado didn’t come across as one who was putting on an act but one who was genuine and genuinely talked about Jesus.  He’s a positive preacher but not a “prosperity preacher”.  I don’t remember the theme of his speech but he had me in tears and ice water runs through my veins.   What he said was substantial, I left there completely full not empty as is usually the case with preachers.

Since then, I’ve read a few of Lucado’s books and I’ll read anything he writes and watch any of his broadcasts, which are few.  Afterward, I always feel moved by his message and he doesn’t have to scream or use the word “money” constantly.

Check out his website MaxLucado.com, I highly recommend his message.

 

Joel Osteen Doesn’t Know

Joel Osteen, “I believe my way with all my heart.”  Watch him say it on “Lary King” and decide for yourself what it means.

A while back, I visited Lakewood Church when I was in Houston and I found it to be nothing more than a big production. There was a stage, a camera operator on a big crane down front, lights, loud music with lots of people clapping and cheering the stars. You know who the stars of that show are, Mr and Mrs Preacher. That’s how everybody acted, like they were the stars of the show. Not Jesus.

It doesn’t appear as showy on TV as it does in real life but maybe all broadcasts are like that. Although, Joel Osteen’s message is all positive it’s missing something and feels shallow, at least to me. The majority of the crowd acted all happy, most were all smiles yet not really friendly. In fact, I found the people outside of the church to be more friendly and helpful than anyone inside. People inside the church didn’t even look at me much less say anything to me. Maybe it’s because I wasn’t dressed up in expensive clothes.

I’ve learned never trust people who smile constantly, they’re all hiding something. Mr and Mrs Preacher were all smiles in front of the camera and crowd but they acted like they couldn’t wait to run away from they’re adoring fans. As soon as the camera was off so were they and the choir immediately took their places and sang louder than before.

I’m not sure that I ever heard anyone speak the name of Jesus the whole time I was there. I left feeling empty and I never returned to Lakewood. Actually, it wasn’t unlike the average American church without cameras.

Where’s the Government?

Day 061/365 - Free Food!

Q: “Why won’t the government help us?  Our government is rich, they should provide for us.”A: 2 Kings 18:21 On Egypt? If you lean on Egypt, it will be like a reed (cane, walker, crutches) that splinters beneath your weight and pierces (stabs) your hand (causing harm). Pharaoh, the king of Egypt (the government, welfare, Medicare, public school system, FEMA), is completely unreliable! NLT.  (My own explanations.)

 

Q: Who will help us in the next emergency?

A: YHWH; Y’SHUA

Psalms 9:9 Consequently  the Lord provides safety for the oppressed;he provides safety in times of trouble.  9:10 Your loyal followers trust in you,for you, Lord, do not abandon those who seek your help.

Church of the Drug Cartel

The Mexican drug madness

From the Christian Post:”Mexico’s epidemic of violence first erupted in 2006, according to most accounts.  But an ex-Muslim from India, who serves as a Christian pastor along the  Texas-Mexican border, believes the problem began much earlier, with human  sacrifice, witches, and the adoration of death in ancient Aztec days.”

“In addition to the almost 50,000 estimated to have died in Mexico’s drug violence, another 10,000 have disappeared without a trace. Many of these, Elijah is convinced, are the victims of Satanic rituals that require human sacrifice.”

“Santa Muerte (Holy Death, or Saint Death)”

“a skeleton wearing a hooded robe,  holding a scythe or globe.  Some link Santa Muerte to the Aztec goddess of the dead, Mictecacihuatl.”

Death Worshipers

Santa Muerte

Saint Death trailer  Watch it here.People who are falling for this lie hold onto a beliefe that death is beautiful and by worshiping the goddess of death they will receive, among other things, a good death.

“Death is beautiful,” is BS from the rear end of the golden calf!

I have watched people die, animals die including my own pets and I testify that death is NOT beautiful!

 Proverbs 8:36 But whoever fails to find me harms himself; all who hate me love death.

Most of my life has been more of an existence filled with morbid thoughts and suicidal inclinations.  Since most of my life has been ugly, I want to experience a beautiful life so I choose LIFE.

John 1:4 In him was life, and that life was the light of men.

John 6:48 I am the bread of life.

Moment of Resurection

       John 6:51 I am the living bread that came down from heaven. If anyone eats from this bread he will live forever. The bread  that I will give for the life of the world is my flesh.”

Isaiah 42:8 I am the Lord (YHWH)! That is my name! I will not share my glory with anyone else, or the praise due me with idols.

2nd They’re hollow images-plastic.

Psalm 5 They have mouths, but cannot speak, eyes, but they cannot see; 6 they have ears, but cannot hear, noses, but they cannot smell; 7 they have hands, but cannot feel, feet, but they cannot walk; nor can they utter a sound with their throats.

John 44 Then Jesus cried out, “When a man believes in me, he does not believe in me only, but in the one who sent me. 45 When he looks at me, he sees the one who sent me. 46 I have come into the world as a light, so that no one who believes in me should stay in darkness.”

Hyper Vigilance For People

Something positive came from a kidnapping!  A teen who was kidnaped in Guatemala City now has a “hyper vigilance for people” concerning their safety.  Read more about Bethani Thomas on the International Mission Board website.

Genesis 50:20 As for you, you meant evil against me, but God meant it for good, to bring it about that many people should be kept alive, as they are today.

Matthew 7:17 So, every healthy tree bears good fruit, but the diseased tree bears bad fruit.  18 A healthy tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a diseased tree bear good fruit.
