*THE HOLY GHOST AND THE WIND*

t16

WHEN THE WIND BLOWS…

“The wind blows where it chooses,…no man knows where it comes from, and no man knows where it goes. – So also is he that is born 0f the Spirit.” (Jesus’ words in John 3:8.)

After rising from the dead on the third day, Jesus appeared in the room where his disciples were hiding for fear of the rulers, and He “breathed” on his disciples and said “receive ye the Holy Ghost.”  Jesus blew his breath on them, – Have you ever wondered if they felt anything?

The wind is defined, in function, to be the same as the Holy Ghost. It can blow softly and move a huge seagoing sail ship along in an orderly fashion. Or it can be a tornado, or hurricane and leave a permanent change in the landscape. In Ezekiel 37  the wind blew and turned a valley full of dead men’s bones into an “exceeding great army.

On the day of pentecost the wind blew – and turned “unlearned” fishermen and even tax collectors etcetera, into some men who “turned the world upside down.”  The wind serves to be either constructive or destructive. We can’t see it, but we can see the results of it. So also with the Holy Ghost. In Psalm 1, when referring to “the ungodly” the wind is said to “drive away the chaff.”  and again –  The whirlwind of the Lord goes forth with fury…upon the head of the anti-God disobedient. (Jeremiah 30:23) And then again, – “…the wind shall carry them away, and the whirlwind shall scatter them,- and you shall rejoice in the Lord…” (Is. 4:16)  Good verses to claim right now in these turbulent times.

When the enemy of God gets in the ring with Him, their arms are always too short to ‘box with God’. Just consider the wind storms of the past, and meditate on the “power of the wind.”

 Only the wind of the Holy Spirit can bring about the necessary changes to save our nation and propel us in the right direction.

THIS IS MY CONSTANT PRAYER; “Father God, I pray that you will send the wind of the Holy Spirit to blow on men and women in this established Christian nation, which satan is trying to destroy, and raise up a mighty army from what might seem like certain ruin. Restore this nation to be the force that you can use once again to “turn the world upside down”. Blow away the chaff ( the ungodly rules and laws and those that are making them) so we will once again be acceptable in your sight as a nation. We can’t make it without your favor! Will you bring us back to the place in you, where we willingly abide by your written rules and principles. In The name above every name, JESUS, – I do offer this prayer.  GD 

If you agree, please say – Amen!

SAVING – THE U.S. OF A.

dad retouched with a background           SAVING U.S. of A.

I love our homeland. If we don’t believe God is hearing and is answering our prayers concerning the redeeming of America, – then why pray?  Queen Mary once said of the founder of the Presbyterian church, John Knox, “I fear the prayers of John Knox more than all the assembled armies of Europe.”

America has left many of the principles by which this nation was established. America was established on Judeo/Christian values. It is easy to see why we are facing heart crushing devastation. It is because of some of our political leaders ungodly and unscriptural decisions. The people of this nation did vote these leaders into office. Therefore the weight of these responsibilities rests on “we the people”.

Where did we as ministers and christians in this nation get off track and let this happen? I take my share of the responsibility. Yes, I have wept as I prayed. Let God’s people bow the knee and accept the responsibility with contrition and brokenness before the Lord, – and repent as though we bore the guilt of it ourselves. Weeping may be for a night, but joy will come in the morning.

We cannot put our trust in any candidate to deliver us and turn our nation around. I thank God for our leaders who embrace the Judeo-Christian values. But God, and He alone can/will do this. The midterm elections are fast approaching. We cannot let up in our diligence to pray. If we His people, who are called christians, will put our trust in God, and not in any electable person, to be our redeemer. Those chips (votes) will fall where they will, – but God is He who distributes, as He will, when His people pray fervently before His face. Solomon said in the Proverbs,” The lot (vote) is cast into the lap, but the whole disposing thereof –  is of the Lord.”

God will see our tears, He will hear our prayers, and only He will heal our land.

Let’s keep our focus on Him, who always causes us to triumph.” Selah!!

Designed Like A Cork

dad retouched with a background                  **STAYING ON TOP**

While I was speaking on a given subject I heard the Lord’s voice down inside. He told me this;

Tell the people that I told you to tell them;

It started unfolding as I spoke it, “Tell them I have designed them like a cork. They have all the ingredients built  in them to stay on top of every situation, regardless of the storms they may go through. There are two  reasons they go down beneath the surface into the dark murky waters of discouragement, doubt and defeat, –

  1. It is either because of debris on top of them, {traditions of men.} i.e. “Making the word of God of none effect through your (religious) traditions.”  (Mark 7 :13) 

Or –

It is something attached to them that is pulling them under.  This would be the sins that have not been laid aside or discontinued. (Hebrews 12:1 ) i.e. “…let us lay aside every weight and the sins which do so easily beset (defeat and discourage) us.”  We should not be in condemnation for past sins that have been forgiven. But we should stop doing those things out of our past that we feel convicted over. Listen to that voice within and make the changes.

The correction and the cure as God continued to speak to me; 

1.”If they will snip the cord of their sins that are holding them down, and, 

2. Follow my word instead of what other people think and do,-  they will immediately begin to rise to the surface and live in the sunshine of my goodness, grace and abundance.”

SUMMARY: God wants us to;  ” fly like eagles, run and not be weary, walk and not faint.”  

* STAY ON TOP *  (read Isaiah 40)

Does God Dream?

t58                                  GOD IS A DREAMER

We all remember Martin Luther King’s renowned message  titled – I HAVE A DREAM. Picture God as He meditated before He created the planet we live on, and then His master design – His children, – humans!  If you were LOVE, as God is, what would you want for your children? Of course, –  a beautiful garden. Why do some people think it is immoral to want the best life has to offer?

God’s dream is that his people “be the head and not the tail,- above and not beneath.” God’s dream is that his people lend and not borrow.”(Deuteronomy 15:4) Read the entire chapter and meditate on it. God listed it as a curse if his children have to borrow other people’s money. Yes, He did!!  – Read it in Deuteronomy 28, verse 43.

It is clear that it is not a sin if you do it, He listed it as a curse if you ‘have to borrow’. The shortage of having your own money to operate out of,- is what God views as ‘under the curse’. If you are like most of us you were taught from your youth ‘how to be a borrower.’ It is a difficult track to get off of, but we can have God’s dream if we pursue it.

This is not offered to offend anyone who borrows. Let there be no condemnation in your heart if you need to borrow. It is not called a sin to borrow,- it is just listed under the curse.

When Jesus came He “..delivered us from the curse..“Just set your goals higher and believe God to take you there.  Get the information that we provide on our website that will promote that lifestyle,- and then believe for it,- and you will see it happen.

WHY A CROWN OF THORNS?

511668_1024x1024            WHY THE CROWN OF THORNS?

“If we always think like we have always thought, we will always do like we have always done. –  If we always do what we have always done, we will always have what we have always had”. –  Few things change until thinking changes.

If I can change the way I think, I can change the life I have,- to the life I want.

Paul the Apostle made this remark; ” –we have the mind of Christ.

Two questions:  How did we get it? and- Are we using it?

God declared in Hosea 4:6: “my people are destroyed for a lack of knowledge.He didn’t say, the devils people, – He said, My people. He is talking about those who have accepted Him/Jesus as their saviour and have come into agreement with Him as ‘The Most High God .’ So, – what else is left to do?  That is what this book is about!

This book, ‘The Purpose For The Crown Of  Thorns’, is a life altering revelation.  We will never believe for something,- that we don’t first believe in! This book is 82 pages of detailed information on this subject. You CANNOT remain the same after reading this book and gaining this knowledge. When I obtained this information it opened me up to receiving all that God has provided for me through Jesus Christ in the lifestyle of faith.

BORN TO LOSE?

20t                                        BORN TO LOSE ?

You may remember the words of the song from the past, BORN TO LOSE (sung by Ray Charles). But thank God we were born again through the person of Jesus Christ and His willing sacrifice of his own life on our behalf!  Through Him, – we were then born to win!

It changes everything when we walk by faith in God. We have a completely new life.

In a time when I was especially discouraged, I heard this in my spirit; –

“If you will always concentrate on being a blessing you will seldom have to pray to receive one.”

That one statement from God to me, set me on a new course of thinking and doing. It completely changed my attitude. It has totally changed my life! I have tried to follow that mindset and I have seen some amazing results. That is why I share these life changing truths freely with you. I will share some of those results in a later blog.

Thinking must change before things will change!  SELAH! * GD
