MERRY CHRISTMAS TO OUR SPECIAL FRIENDS AND PARTNERS
CAN I CONCEIVE CHRISTMAS…?
When the angel appeared to Joseph and announced the news about his intended sweetheart Mary being pregnant, He explained; “…that which is ‘conceived’ in her is ‘of the Holy Ghost.’” We know Mary’s conception was by God and not by man… and CHRISTMAS was born! Joseph knew he hadn’t done it.
Consider this: “The natural man receives (conceive’s) not the things of the spirit of God.. because they are spiritually discerned (conceived) .” (1 Cor. 2 )
It is a supernatural experience to ‘conceive Christmas.’ It is not a thing of the natural mind. It is something that happens in the spirit realm. It is a ‘faith experience.’ Jesus said it this way in Matthew 5:5;
“Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see (conceive) God.” (to conceive: begin the creation of a birth)
1. The disciples on the mount of transfiguration had a conception in their spirit. They were never the same again. They went out and “turned the world upside down.”
2. Jacob had a spiritual conception two times:
a.When he promised to‘ tithe all to God.’
b. And when he wrestled with the angel all night. His life completely changed after that. The heart of his arch-enemy, his brother Esau, suddenly changed toward Jacob and he met him with a hug.
3. Many saints of God today have had similar experiences. My self included, – on two separate occasions.
I have learned some things about conceiving God. I can’t get a conception with out being totally exposed. A ‘Pure heart’ will expose the warts, sores, scars, bitterness and any un-forgiveness. I cannot conceive with God in a negative mindset or attitude. A pure heart cannot be judgmental toward others. Think about it. A pure heart cannot have a two faced attitude. A pure heart must come before him broken and humble in spirit. A pure heart will willingly expose its ignorance and failures to God.
There is so much that I still don’t know. When I was age 40, God spoke these words to me on one similar occasion; “Because you know you don’t know, you are open to learn. If you will listen to me, I will teach you.” I broke into tears and wept, and I promised God that I would obey if he would show me. Following that occasion, I started understanding and seeing scriptures that I had never known before. Even though I had read them all my life. My financial life turned completely around. I was debt- free in 12 years and haven’t had to borrow money since.
Just like physical and natural conception, – We conceive it in our spirit, then it is manifested in the physical.
Mary accepted the word of the angel, “Be it unto me as you have spoken.” Then a few months later – ‘baby Jesus’,- our first Christmas!
My Closing Prayer For You
My prayer for all our partners is that you will conceive ‘of the Holy Ghost’ this special Christmas Season. We pray that all of your family, which God in His benevolence, has already bestowed on you, – will give you increase and blessings in abundance, so that others will indeed observe you and “call you blessed!”
I received a note from the George Barna poll, that only 2/3rds of pastors today believe that scripture is the infallible word of God. There is indeed a “falling away” as predicted to happen in the last day. I have been doing a special message on the subject titled ‘HELL-NO.’ “If there is a literal HELL-NO,- I don’t want to go.” One minister told me that he wasn’t sure there was a literal Hell. I have this message on CD for those who will help me this month with the following overwhelming request.
I have received requests for 600 different names and addresses wanting to get a copy of the book I wrote titled,- SHOULD I SPEAK IN TONGUES, to go to believers in the villages of Africa. They are asking for help with the expense to translate and print the book in the Edo language.
Please pray for me as I stand and believe. “A door open and effectual is unto me” to use the words of Paul the apostle. It isn’t hard to see that I’ll need a miracle / financial infusion to climb this mountain.
I draw strength and hope from –Hebrews 6:10 NIV
“GOD IS NOT UNJUST; HE WILL NOT FORGET YOUR WORK AND THE LOVE YOU HAVE SHOWN HIM, AS YOU HAVE HELPED HIS PEOPLE AND CONTINUE TO HELP THEM… and verse 11:
“WE WANT EACH OF YOU TO SHOW THIS SAME DILIGENCE TO THE VERY END, SO THAT WHAT YOU HOPE FOR,- MAY BE FULLY REALIZED.”
I do the same as you do, I pray and sow my seeds (tithe and offerings) in faith, – then I believe for the harvest.! Thank you in advance for believing with me! The enclosed envelope is our offering pan.
CONCEIVE IN THE SPIRIT AT CHRISTMAS – AND GIVE BIRTH TO YOUR MIRACLE IN THE NATURAL REALM…
