PRAYER FOR HEALING

Dear heavenly Father, this person is suffering from an illness and I ask you according to Your own commandment to intervene according to the scripture, Isaiah 53:5 But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, And by His stripes we are healed. Having called out to the elders as instructed, I ask You to strengthen us with the faith of Christ and help us to believe with all our hearts that You will heal as You have promised. In the name of Jesus remove this infirmity. James 5:14-15 Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven. Please give Your   peace and healing grace for I believe that it is Jesus who heals. Acts 9:34 And Peter said to him, “Aeneas, JESUS THE CHRIST HEALS YOU. Arise and make your bed.” Then he arose immediately. Exodus 15:26 I am the Lord who heals you!

 I have laid my hands on the computer screen and said this prayer, please do the same and lay your hands on the screen and say: Lord Jesus, by Your holy faith, please heal me in Jesus name amen.

 1 John 3:22 And whatever we ask we receive from Him. 

GOD LOVES YOU!

 

 

Our Father in heaven

BUILDING STONES FOR CHRIST

Have you become petrified or, are you a living, building stone for Christ?

Christians are all part of the body of Christ and have an important role to play in God’s plan. Ask Jesus everyday what He wants you to do? Seek His guidance in everything. Be a useful stone in the building of the Church. Even in the wilderness the Israelites relied on a Spiritual Rock.

1 Cor. 10:3-5 All were baptized into Moses in the cloud and in the sea, all ate the same spiritual food, and all drank the same spiritual drink. FOR THEY DRANK OF THAT SPIRITUAL ROCK THAT FOLLOWED THEM, AND THAT ROCK WAS CHRIST!

When Christ started His ministry and began building His Church, He selected twelve apostles to train in building His Church. Jesus chose Peter as the chief apostle and rock of the Church to start His building!

Matthew 16:18 And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church.

The Church has grown in two thousand years to about two billion Christians on the earth. It is still growing as you the building stones of the Church are spreading the gospel of salvation to reach the lost of the world.

Again I ask are you petrified or are you a living stone for Christ? Are you using your life to reach others who are lost? Are you planting and watering so God can give the increase? That is what He commands!

1 Corinthians 3:6 I planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the increase.

Ephesians 2:20 Having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, JESUS CHRIST HIMSELF BEING THE CHIEF CORNERSTONE. Thess. 1: 6 You became followers of us and of the Lord, having received the word in much affliction, WITH JOY OF THE HOLY SPIRIT.

Be moved by the Holy Spirit! The Holy Spirit dwells in you! Let Him use you as a fruitful building stone for Christ.

MYSTERY OF MAN’S PURPOSE

God made a time for everything! Ecclesiastes 3:1 To everything there is a season, A time for every purpose under heaven:

11 He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also He has put eternity in their hearts, except that no one can find out the work that God does from beginning to end.

From the beginning to the end! WOW! The historical lifetime of man is extremely short compared to the lifetime of God! Revelation 1:8 “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End,” says the Lord, “who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.”

God has a great and Holy Plan by which He created the heavens and the earth and created man to inhabit the earth. So the age old question that has been asked: “What is man and what is his purpose?” The purpose is a great mystery that is now revealed by the Holy Spirit to those in Christ! God created man for an extremely high and holy purpose, but He left it to man to decide whether he wanted to partake of His glory. So what has man done with the earth he has inherited? He has just about totally polluted it. The earth, air, water, sound, etc. you name it and man has tainted and contaminated it. Man’s understanding of things from above is polluted and perverted as well. God wants to share His glory with those who choose to do so through the gospel of Jesus Christ.

 1Peter 1:3-5 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an INHERITANCE INCORRUPTIBLE AND UNDEFILED and that does not fade away, reserved in heaven for you, who are kept by the power of God through faith for salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.

The Holy Spirit in Christ Jesus changes everything by making anyone who chooses Christ and is born again into new life an INHERITOR of the Kingdom of God. They will receive a new body, name, residence, job, eternal life, a great reward, is a king and priest, sharing the glory and throne of God!

HOW MUCH GREATER CAN A PURPOSE BE?

HOW IMPORTANT IS YOUR BAPTISM?

Have you ever observed someone being baptized and heard the pastor make a statement that baptism is not important and that you are not saved by baptism that it is only a symbol of publicly receiving Christ as your Savior? I have and I always wondered why they felt that they had to tell everyone this every time they baptized someone as if they might do something wrong if they didn’t. I have thought on this subject many times and have always wondered about it!

The bible teaches that there are certain important major Church doctrines that we ought to obey. In the book of Hebrews God very thoroughly explains to us what the “new covenant” is all about. The church of God is no longer under the old covenant after the order of the Levitical Priesthood as given to Israel by Moses. We are now under the Priesthood after the order of Melchizedek! Our high priest is Jesus  Christ who is from the tribe of Judah which was never even mentioned by Moses that there would be a priesthood other than the Levitical Priesthood. Now Christ teaches us in the bible that there are new covenant doctrines that we need to learn and follow. Hebrews 6: 1-2 Therefore, leaving the discussion of the elementary principles of Christ, let us go on to perfection, not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works and of faith toward God, of the DOCTRINE OF BAPTISMS, of laying on of hands, of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment.

I believe that Jesus Christ is the author of the Holy Bible and that it is the infallible truth of God! When He makes it a point to tell us about the major doctrine of baptism in context with the resurrection of the dead we need to pay attention and understand what Jesus is saying! When God sent His Holy Spirit down to the earth to inhabit the hundred and twenty believers on the day of Pentecost  (Acts 2: 1-4 When the Day of Pentecost had fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. Then there appeared to them divided tongues, as of fire, and one sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit… Matthew 3:11 I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance, but He who is coming after me is mightier than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to carry. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire) the Apostles went out and started preaching to the multitude of people in Jerusalem and the very first thing Peter told them in Acts 2:38 Then Peter said to them, “Repent, and let every one of you be BAPTIZED in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and YOU SHALL RECEIVE THE GIFT OF THE HOLY SPIRIT. WHEN YOU ARE BAPTIZED YOU RECEIVE THE HOLY SPIRIT! Don’t you think that makes baptism rather important to a Christian? But always remember that with God all things are possible! If He chooses to give you His Holy Spirit some other way He can but you still need to be baptized. (Acts 10:44-48 While Peter was still speaking these words, the Holy Spirit fell upon all those who heard the word. And those of the circumcision who believed were astonished, as many as came with Peter, because the gift of the Holy Spirit had been poured out on the Gentiles also. For they heard them speak with tongues and magnify God. Then Peter answered, “Can anyone forbid water, that these should not be baptized who have received the Holy Spirit just as we have?” And he commanded them to be baptized in the name of the Lord).

I encourage anyone who has not done so, to get on your knees and ask God what baptism is all about and He will answer and lead you into a life so wonderful and will infuse you with a new power that you never knew existed. Jesus changes everything! SEEK HIM NOW!

IDLE WORDS

People can say anything but what you do says a lot more than what you say!

Matt. 21: 28-31 “But what do you think? A man had two sons, and he came to the first and said, ‘Son, go, work today in my vineyard.’ He answered and said, ‘I will not,’ but afterward he regretted it and went. Then he came to the second and said likewise. And he answered and said, ‘I go, sir,’ but he did not go. Which of the two did the will of his father?”

Examine yourself to be sure your motive is right before you commit to anything. Don’t let your moral or ethical principles be compromised, do all with honesty. Let your actions speak louder than words.

 Titus 2:1 But as for you, speak the things which are proper for sound doctrine!

You need the wisdom of Jesus shining like a light from inside you, so that those who do not know Him will be curious as to what makes you so different, perhaps even desiring the same thing you have. Let your example be like a sweet honeycomb.

Imitate Jesus because He changes everything! Be effectual in all things, bearing fruit to Christ, amen!

CHRIST THE CHIEF SHEPHERD

There are different offices of shepherds listed in the Bible and not all Christians hold these positions. God calls those whom He will to do His work. Ephesians 4: 11-12 And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ. Hebrews 3:1 Wherefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our profession, Christ Jesus.

Those men that God calls to be pastors have to live with their own challenges in life in regard to God, church, family, and spiritual vocation. They are human just like everyone else and as a pastor figuratively put on a pedestal by their congregation. It is tough on him and his family all the while looking after the souls of the Church as a good shepherd will do. 1 Peter 5: 4 and when the Chief Shepherd appears, you (shepherds) will receive the crown of glory that does not fade away.

Support your pastor, pray for him and his family, invite them over for dinner;  get to know your pastor and let him know you care for you are Christ’s sheep;  God gave you a shepherd.

1 Peter 2: 25  For you were like sheep going astray, but have now returned to the Shepherd and Overseer of your souls.

If you have surrendered to Jesus and made Him the Lord of your life then; seek out a church, get involved, and follow your shepherd. He will teach you, disciple you and watch after your soul. Peace to you in the Lord Jesus Christ!
