Jesus said the woman who gave two cents, gave more than all the rich people gave… How so? I discovered in my early life, that God doesn’t think like I think. To we educated mortals, 2+2 makes 4.
[ “…five loaves and two fish, – but what are they among so many? ]
You may know the story in the writings of Luke. More than five thousand men, plus women and children, had followed Jesus out of a city and into a wilderness. They were so hungry to hear his words of hope and life. The impression we get is that only one lad had thought ahead and came prepared with some food to eat. His mama probably saw to that.
Copy me on this; – While meditating and talking to God a few mornings back, I became pensive: “Father, I’m not able to travel and preach/teach like I did for 63 years, and I really miss it. I feel so limited on how to distribute the ministry that still stirs so deep inside of me.”
I guess we could feel that way at any age. But, while reading the scriptures following that set-to with God, – those words about the “five loaves and two fish” seemed to stand up off the page and talk to me. I hope they will speak to you as well;
Meditate this: – If I am ‘prepared’ (properly equipped both mentally and spiritually) to be a blessing while following the Lord, I will see some amazing things happen with what I have to offer, even if it seems so small.
David said in the Psalms, “Bring anoffering,and come into his courts.” (or ‘come prepared’ to be a blessing)
When Moses was chosen by God to deliver God’s people, God asked Moses this question; “What is that in your hand? ” Moses replied, “My shepherds rod.” In other words,- ‘not much’! God instructed him; ”cast it on the ground.” When he obeyed the word of the lord, it suddenly became a live and threatening serpent. It appeared to be something that could destroy him. Then God said,” pick it up.” Uh – do what? With great reluctance and lots of faith, Moses picked it up. That threatening serpent suddenly became a rod that was forever transformed into a tool for miracles. If you are a bible student you probably know the rest of that spell binding story and all the miracles that followed when Moses trusted and brandished that rod.
Jesus could have used anybody’s meal to work that miracle and feed five thousand men, plus the women and children,( about 15 thousand total) – but only one out of more than five thousand came prepared with something in their hand….! Are you seeing what I am seeing?
God’s lesson to me is clear; – Teeming millions are searching for words of hope and life. What I have and what I can do, seems so small when compared to the need and the overwhelming task. But,- if I do what I can, and share what I have, and care enough, and trust God enough to give it to him – I will never be able to explain or even know the enormity of what it will accomplish. I will never know how many were fed and helped from,- my little bit.
I, Gerald Davis, under the direction of the Holy Spirit, have prepared some seed over my 65 years of ministry, ( i.e; books, CD’s and DVD’s etc) – then those who participate in sharing what they can, to help me distribute the seed as partners, (yes,– even two cents) will create the miracle of increase and supply, – and will feed us well in the process! Everybody ate to their satisfaction and appetite, – including the lad who trusted Jesus with what he had when the opportunity came. They gathered up twelve baskets fullthat were left over! The boy had plenty to take home to his mama,- because he committed what he had to Jesus. I hope this truth reaches your spirit-man like it did me!
“What is born of the mind only reaches the mind, – but what is born of the heart,- reaches the heart.” (C. M Ward)
Did you ever want to shout! A word from the Lord sure does boost our spirits and gives us a renewed joy.
Jesus lifts us up where we belong,- and makes us to sour with the eagles!
I hope this helped you as much today as it did me…

WHAT IS HAPPENING IN OUR NATION..?
This article is written for those who care.
The following is an illustration of what happens – WHEN ‘GOD REJECTORS’ TAKE THE CONTROLS…
Compare this story in the bible with what happened in our recent election. It is located in 1st Samuel chapters 1 thru 7. (NIV) My thoughts will be listed in sequence as it plays out in this story. I recommend you read the story first. The ‘bullet points’ are the highlights…
They had a man sent from God; -1st Samuel (Ch. 1) – so also did America for the last four years.
Abuse and disrespect for the rules of worship – The Israeli’s embraced and allowed for other Gods and its worship – consider the ‘other Gods’ and religions and their influence in our USA today.
Israel gained the frown of God and lost his favor… (v.27-35)
There was no discipline for sexual violations; (Ch. 2:22) – consider our own nations embrace of LGBTQ and more? God hates this,- as declared in both O.T and N.T…
God’s pattern of blessing on family generations ‘was adjusted’ to the obedience of each individual, with individual consequences-no more excuses! God’s judgement is just. Thankfully we are not judged by what others think or do. (Ch. 2:30-33)
God promised to speak to them through His word; (v.19) – That promise remains the same for us today.
Their ‘anti-God’ enemies bold and face-on attack – (Ch. 4 :2-3) Consider the ‘now controlling’ party in America who dis-allowed God from their platform on national television in their 2012 convention, – then consider what has happened in our recent elections, both state and national.
The Ark of God (containing the 10 commandments) was pulled out and used as a symbol or fetish in hope of a miracle, – and WAS THEN ‘TAKEN IN POSSESSION BY THE ANTI-GOD ENEMY’ in battle. The ‘anti-god’ people now hold the reins of power in America, – this Christian nation.
Note: If people don’t embrace what is inside the bible, it doesn’t bring a blessing; – It brings judgement!
The Israelis ‘other god’s’ leadership, didn’t embrace what was written inside that ‘ark of the covenant.‘ Meditate the power of God’s Word – both to bless or to judge. (v. 10)
The opponents of God were now in total control of God’s people and of the precious ‘tablets of stone.’ They were as shocked then as we may be today ‘following our recent elections.’
It appeared that God had forsaken them – (v.14-18) I have learned in my own life, that if things are not moving in the right direction for me, I start listening for God to help me make some changes in my thinking and in my direction. I heard this in my spirit on one occasion; “If you can keep the principles, I have no problem keeping my promises.” Example: If I can pay my tithe before I eat, I will seldom have a problem with the “good fight of faith.” I have proven to God that He is first!
Despair and fear overcame the people.Stress overcame the daughter-in-law of the high priest. She gave an untimely birth to a boy, – and named him Ichabod. Meaning; “the glory of the lord has departed.” The favor of God is our single greatest asset. That favor will never rest on a leadership that rejects Him.
The ‘anti-god’ people got what they wanted, – then they didn’t ‘want what they got’. (Ch. 5:1-12) You should read it with a pensive mind and spirit! When anti-god people take the reins and begin to put unscriptural rules on God’s covenant people, (closing churches and etcetera..) – interesting things begin to happen. My thought: Christian America may have lost a battle, – but they haven’t lost the war. Christians live their lives in the spirit realm. They see beneath the surface. The spirit realm is where our battles are fought. NOBODY’S ARMS ARE LONG ENOUGH TO BOX WITH GOD. One writer of the scriptures declared of God; “His ways are past finding out.” We don’t know how God will do it, but we know He will never abandon His people. Jesus people are called in the scriptures; “The Israel of God.” They “keep the faith”,- they carry a sword and they “watch and pray”!
The ‘anti-god’ Philistines who were now in control of God’s people, began to pay a heavy price, both physical and material, until correction and reparations had been made. (Ch. 6; 1-21) A plague of ‘emerods,’ some thought it to be hemorrhoids or tumors, began to spread among the Philistines, (the anti-god controllers) and rulers over God’s covenant people. Note: If people walk in obedience to God and embrace His word, “they are not as them who have no hope.” Christians should “be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might” and “resist the devil.” Satan wants to put diseases and afflictions on people. We resist him through prayer and deep resolve. NO is the best and most effective word we can use when speaking to the devil. We use our God given authority. Covid-19 is not a believers portion, nor is any other “plague that comes nigh my dwelling.” (Ps. 91) If people fight “the good fight of faith,” the Lord steps into it with them. Keep in mind, “the spirit of fear” comes from the devil. It is not the path of a winner. God’s promise is clear; “resist the devil and he will flee from you.”
A great revival occurred in Israel – It only took 7 months for the anti-god people to seek for a way to hurriedly get ‘the ark’ back into the hands of God’s people. We go back to scriptural living. We “repent and turn from our wicked ways.” Nobody wants the curse! Often it takes a little time for people to “see the light.” Miracles began to happen for God’s people, (v.10-14) thank God they never cease. But the miracles occurred during a time when the people were making sacrifices and offerings unto God. Does that concur and agree with your spirit and knowledge of God?
I hope this parallel story registers with your spirit as it did mine. It gave me some calm as I studied it. I don’t have to know what God will do, or how He will do it, – I just need to know Him, – and agree with Him. He is a “rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.” Read ’11Chronicles 7:14′ again.
This message is ‘my heart to you’ in this difficult time for our nation.
Our partners and friends have a heart for ‘reaching the unreached and telling the un-told.’
Of the nine books I have written, these two books shown here are being translated (one finished and the other in process) and will be distributed free of charge to the Pakistani people. One book is titled THE CROWN OF THORNS and the other is titled SHOULD I SPEAK IN TONGUES.
This dear pastor (pictured with another pastor) wrote to me asking permission to translate my books into the local (URDU) language. To show his sincerity and honesty, he sent me a hard copy of ‘The Crown of Thorns’ that he did at his own expense. He then asked me if I could help him with the cost of printing and distribution. I sent him some money for translating, printing costs and distributing the first book.
I am reaching out to our ministry partners, advising you of this open door to continue spreading the message of faith and fullness for believers according to 3rd John 2. (30-fold, 60-fold, or hundred-fold) and debt-free living. Many of our partners have been helped toward these benefits through our messages.
I need to raise $5,500 to help me and this pastor continue this “word of faith” message through these two books. I’ll let you know where we are with this project as time and work moves along. You can go to our website www.geralddavisministries.org where PayPal is available, and other convenient online systems.
Now in my 85th year, I can say with King David, “The lines have fallen unto me in pleasant places.” Whatever our age or limitations, we can still go and minister the word of God to people with these tools/books, and some money. Yes,-we can still be a blessing! These books are given freely to hungry people. Our ministry covers the cost to help this pastor in printing and distributing these books. This pastor (Anil Jasper) is ‘our hands and our feet’ in Pakistan.
I Just got this information from a Christian news source; –
Quote: “Christians in Pakistan… are facing violence and murder under ‘blasphemy without proof,’ which, under Pakistani archaic law, carries a death sentence.” Jesus Christ is the only ‘religion of love!’ All others are fear and hate driven.
In these troubled times, let us “hold firm to those things that we have learned and been assured of.”
Gerald and Thelma Davis
The following is such a good word for now…it is what I practice.
(Galatians 6: 6-9) “Let him that is taught in the word…share with him who teaches. Never be deceived, God will not be mocked (called a liar.) What a man sows (gives away) are what he will reap (determines his income for the future) …He who sows to the spirit will reap everlasting life. And don’t grow weary (impatient) in doing good, in due season we will reap (receive) if we don’t lose heart (faint and give up.) …as we have opportunity let us do good to all, especially to those who are of the household offaith.”
Forward with the parties and festivities and the giving of gifts. Let there be dancing and singing and glorious joy. A Son is born, a Savior has come…
‘Oh, tell me His name again, and whisper that sweet refrain, how Christ in his love came down from above, to die on that cross of shame. The story my heart has stirred; ‘tis the sweetest I’ve ever heard. It banishes fear, it brings hope and cheer; so- tell me His name again.’ JESUS is the sweetest name I know; and he is just the same as his lovely name; – that’s the reason why I love Him so; – OH tell me His name again!’
We encourage our friends at this wonderful birthday celebration of our Lord and Savior, – to keep looking up! “We are seated in the heavenlies;” Christ’s mighty power has raised us over all. The only window in Noah’s ark was in the top. When the outlook is not good, we just concentrate on looking UP…!
REMEMBER:The only way we get miracles is to need them.Never be depressed when needs are knocking on your door. It means you are getting close to a miracle. I am expecting God to do some things that are beyond our power or knowledge in this coming year, for individuals as well as our beloved Christian nation. Has He ever failed us before? We may keep falling, but He just keeps picking us up. We don’t know what tomorrow holds, – but WE KNOW WHO holds tomorrow!
We love and appreciate our friends and partners, and we…
WISH YOU A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR OF 2021!
Gerald & Thelma ~ (keep this and read it again… let it get into your spirit man)
The books pictured here, titled THE CROWN OF THORNS and SHOULD I SPEAK IN TONGUES, are being translated into the Urdu language, to be freely distributed to ministers in Pakistan. What a special door of ministry the Lord has opened up in that nation. I have packaged revelation knowledge into 9 books during my 65 years of study, anointing and preaching, and now this ministry will continue through the printed page as a missionary to this hungry nation. I have provided a donate button for you to use in helping me with this effort. What a wonderful way to give to our Lord at His birthday season. This man is willing and capable, and has the desire to translate all of our books and distribute them. I must take advantage of this opportunity; – I NEED SOME FRIENDS TO MAKE A SPECIAL CHRISTMAS DONATION to help me here? This is definitely a God connection!
I know blessings are coming to those who help me with this opportunity.
Your donations will receive a tax deductible receipt. We pray daily for our partners during this pandemic attack on our nation. We freely give..
When Amy Coney Barrett was confirmed to the Supreme Court to fill the seat of Ruth Bader Ginsberg, I was reminded of a story I read,- about a similar ‘dark day’ mindset. The setting of that story was about 2000 years ago.
But first reflect with me on the caption above about “a dark day in America.” It was Chuck Schumer, one of America’s democrat leaders, who was extremely disturbed about the selection of a Christian/constitutionalist replacement for the recently departed Ginsberg. In the response to her selection and confirmation he stated; …this is “a dark day in America.” Barret’s faith was in one (Jesus) who came as “the light of the world.” It was said of Jesus that He was “a light to them who sat in darkness.”
Go with me to that time and place. People were heavily oppressed by their government. The taxes were so heavy they could hardly function . Slavery strongly prevailed. Their children could be conscripted for debt payment. An encouraging term was used concerning the people of those days; “They that sat in darkness saw a great light.”
When that light came on the scene and began to offer hope through his words and His teachings, and His life giving miracles, that light was rejected by the governing officials. It was a threat to their corrupt and greedy establishment. There was a ‘swamp’ of corruption in His day too. The coming of this unstoppable voice of hope and freedom was to them,- a ‘threat’ to their life-style. Here is the statement that came to my mind when Mr Schumer made that statement. It is located in the bible; “…none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known, they would not have crucified (Jesus) the Lord of glory.” (1st Corinthians 2:8)
The term ‘princes of this world’ was referring to the political leaders of that time. They are the ones who had Jesus (that light) put out and killed. Little did they know that He would come out of His grave and rise up to heaven (in the sight of over 500 people) , and overpower them, and all the others who would come after them. Little did they know that He would crush their heads in total defeat, and render them completely and forever destroyed. They just didn’t know He was the ‘son of God’ and the prophesied “King of Kings and the ruler of the Universe.” If they had known what was coming, they never would have had him killed. To them, it was a- ‘dark day’ when he rose from the dead.
History seems to be repeating itself in our day. A threat has appeared on the landscape of the corruption and vice in our country. By no stretch is Amy Barrett or Donald Trump being held at the same level as our Lord and Saviour Jesus. I am only speaking of the climate of the political world and its comparison to Jesus’ day.
Not too many would fault Amy Barrett, outside of her faith in Jesus. Many would fault President Donald Trump because of some of his crude words and phrases. But there is not room to list all he has accomplished for America and the far east in this article. He is being fought and opposed as no other candidate that I have seen in my lifetime. He clearly is a threat to the vice and corruption that is in Washington DC, and in some of the states around our nation. Many things he has said/done has raised the anger and hatred of so many ‘swamp’ politicians. Donald Trump has stood strong for God and ‘people of faith’. No president before him has moved our Embassy in Israel,- to Jerusalem. There have been 4 recommendations for this president, to receive the Nobel Peace Prize because of his efforts and accomplishments for peace in the far east.
I believe my point is clear concerning the ‘Dark Day’. To a person of bible knowledge, the appointment and confirmation of Amy Barrett was a very ‘bright day’ and not a dark day. If Donald Trump is re-elected for four more years as America’s president, it will be another ‘dark day’ for those who are not in favor of having God and Christianity in this nation. Mr. Biden predicted a “dark winter” for America in 2021′.This may be true if they gain power. It will indeed be a ‘dark day’ for the God rejecters. But;- “The way of the righteous grows brighter every day.” Friends of God are ‘winners, never losers‘!
The opposition has clearly stated their anti-God position, by vote,- two times, to be sure the vote was correct. This was done in their 2012 convention. I watched it happen. Most people are aware of that by now.
Is it any wonder that socialism and communism would naturally follow?
“THE FOOL HAS SAID IN HIS HEART, ‘THERE IS NO GOD.‘”
I can’t vote with or for something that is against God, and maintain His favor. The favor of God is my # 1 asset in this world. I fear God,- not the devil!
Maintain ‘faith and trust’ in God Almighty. We will see a ‘bright day’ just ahead.
A special word of counsel to our friends and ministry partners-
Thelma and I are at the age of 84 now, as of July 25th. We have been married for 66 wonderful years. We have two sons, 8 grandchildren and 14 great grands. They all honor and serve the Lord Jesus. We have been in the service (ministry) of our Lord for 65 years together.- yes ITS A MIRACLE.
A SPECIAL WORD OF GUIDANCE
I want to pass along some words of guidance and counsel to my younger friends.
Life will never be free of trouble in some form. ‘We have to run Satan off,’- he never volunteers to leave.
But, – I have some priorities to share with you that can prevent a lot of entanglements and unnecessary heartache in your future. This would be good to save and pass along to your friends…
Here is the list of 5 priorities for a happy marriage and for successful living-
1.GOD FIRST –
Always keep God first. Your personal relationship with God in ‘Bible time and prayer’ cannot be over emphasized. We can’t build a confident prayer life without knowing how God thinks.
2.YOUR COMPANION –
He/she should never, ever doubt your allegiance to them. Some words in Proverbs 31 say it best. “His heart can safely trust in her to do him good and not evil allthe days of his life.” To the man; – only you can make her know that she is the most important person in your life. It requires thoughtfulness, effort and self-initiative. If you only respond to her when she is reaching out, – it won’t be enough! We should shun ‘even the appearance’ of an interest in another person of the opposite gender.
3. TAKE CARE OF YOUR SELF –
Your own body. This applies both to the man and to the lady. If you thought the children would be third on the list, you would be wrong. If you don’t take good care of yourself, you can’t properly take care of the children, – or your companion.
4. TAKE GOOD CARE OF YOUR CHILDREN –
Children are “the heritage of the Lord”. They are either a compliment or a negative reflection when they become grown. If you have properly loved and cared for your children, including discipline when they are coming up, they will be the best asset you can evergrow anddevelop. It is your children who will care for you when you can’t properly care for yourself. You want them to do it of their own volition and desire, – not only from a sense of obligation. Proper discipline with thoughtfulness and love will create in them a sense of security.
5. NOW TAKE CARE OF BUSINESS –
NOTE: If you are a minister, ‘that is your business’. It doesn’t come first ahead of your family. I understand “the call” as we refer to it, to doing the work of the ministry. It is a driving force that never leaves or slacks off.
An experience I had; – In 1965, while I was at my office as pastor of a church in Houston, Texas, I got a phone call from my wife. She asked if she could ‘make an appointment’ to have some time with me. It put my entire perspective in shock. I knew I had to get a new grip on how I was viewing my calling (work). If my wife was not happy with how things were…?
Note: God is never moreinterested in ‘other people, or in fame or money’, than he is ‘our families’. I have known numbers of professional people who “shipwrecked” because they didn’t get these priorities straight. They had a great ministry, but their priorities were out of order. We all know it is true; “ If momma ain’t happy…!
I know there are always exceptions to every rule. But ‘if both persons in the marriage love God and put Him first’, this list of priorities will be the general rule to follow for a long and successful life and marriage. *I hope this will be helpful and meaningful to you. SELAH! *
A VERY STRONG THANK YOU TO OUR FRIENDS AND PARTNERS IN MINISTRY
Thelma and I can’t travel now and keep up with a rigorous preaching schedule. Our old bodies can’t manage that pace anymore. I can continue doing ministry through blogs, email <email@example.com> and facebook, plus ministry through mailouts and distribution. (See list of 9 books) We give away a lot of books to overseas destinations, – and at home.<www.geralddavisministries.org>
I’m still able to help ministers and friends via telephone visits <713 805 2289> and special counsel and prayer. I have been praying each Sunday morning at 7:00 on BPN radio, an International radio station owned and operated by Dale Gentry Ministries out of Austin, Texas… that reaches over a hundred countries. Now in it’s fifth year of ministry.
“THE MIND OF CHRIST”
Praise God Almighty, I still have the mind of Christ! Whatever is born of ‘my mind only’ will ‘only reach your mind.’ But if it is born of ‘His mind’ (spirit), – it will reach ‘your heart’. And-
“Out of the heart are the issues of life.”
PRAYER EFFORTS FOR AMERICA
Be encouraged! – I am aware of many concentrated prayer efforts across this nation, doing 11 Chron. 7:14. We are not going to lose this Christian nation that God helped our fore- fathers to establish. God would not abandon America any sooner than He would abandon Israel. Because we have embraced both the Judeo and the Christian values. And America stands firmly in support of Israel. Can you ‘raise a Hallelujah’ in agreement! IN GOD WE TRUST!
MY FEELINGS TOWARD MY PARTNERS
These words from Paul in 11 Timothy 1: 16-18 express my feelings toward my partners today;
“This you know…the Lord grant mercy to the house of Onesiphorus, for he often refreshed me…he sought me out and found me. The Lord grant him…mercy…you know how many ways he ministered to me…”.
Mercy and blessings search out those who attach themselves to ministries of their choice, and who bless them in an on-going manner. No ministry can function without their friends.
And one more statement made by Paul,- for thinkers; (1 Cor.3: 8-9)
“The one who plants and the one who waters have one purpose, and they will each berewarded according to their own labor. For we are co-workers in God’s service; you are God’s field…” I firmly decree that God is planting in your field! The eyes of our Lord will not overlook your deeds of service and love toward Gerald Davis Ministries during this period of our life. HE WILL NOT overlook it!
Please stand in agreement with us that God would “send forth more laborers in the field” with us, – and help us finish strong! NOTE: FREE BOOKS FOR MY PARTNERS WHO REQUEST THEM…see the <website www.geralddavisministries.org>
I’ve entered a list of verses from the bible below that my reader can go to if you choose.
Is there a literal hell? 2. If so , where is it? 3. Do people really go there? 4. If so, why?
My following thoughts will be based on the assumption that the reader believes the bible is the Word of God. If not, this probably won’t be of interest you. Jesus (God come in the flesh) talked about hell more than any other personality in the bible. Both during his three years of ministry on earth, and then in His revelation to John on the Island of Patmos.
CONSIDER THESE FACTS:
We know the earth is round. We understand the law of gravity. If hell is beneath us, as the scriptures say it is, then hell is below us regardless of where we stand on the surface of the earth.
Pointing down in America is pointing up toward China, and vice versa. If I could drill a hole from to America to China, and drop a one thousand pound ball into it, the ball would travel toward the center of the earth and continue to gain speed until it reached the center of the earth. Velocity would cause it to continue toward China after it reached the center of the earth. But from the center of the earth it would begin to climb instead of fall. It would slow its ascent until it reached the peak of its velocity. Then it would begin to fall back toward the center of the earth where it would finally lodge and stay. The core of the earth is the center of gravity. That is why it is called “the bottomless pit” in the book Revelation. There is no bottom to the core of the earth, because every direction from the center of the earth is up toward the surface.
If you could pore a million tons of water into the hole, it would do the same as the lead ball. It would center itself in the core of the earth. It is held there by gravity. This explains the “lake of fire” as referenced four times in the book of Revelations. When Jesus spoke of hell, he often referred to it as a place of “fire and brimstone.”
People don’t go to hell in a flesh and blood body. That would be consumed in a moment. The soul of people go there at the departure from the body when the body dies. According to the scriptures they will take on a spirit and flesh body which will never die nor be consumed. But it will still have physical sensation.
EXAMPLE: When Jesus rose from the dead he was not flesh and blood. He was flesh and spirit. His blood had been drained on the cross. The life in his body was now ‘spirit’ and not blood. He could eat food, and the disciples could touch Him.
We will have a flesh and spirit body that will go somewhere and remain for all eternity. Hell is called “the second death”… but, -” where the soul never dies.” Thus the term “soul and body cast into hell … where there is weeping and grinding of teeth.”
People who choose not to believe in a literal hell, do so because they don’t want to believe it. But then, – who does want to believe it?
Where does that lava, fire and brimstone come from that we are seeing from the volcanoes? 2. What causes those volcano and fissures to begin to convulse and belch out that fire and brimstone? Here is a statement from a prophet of God named Isaiah, in Chapter 5 verse 14; “…hell has enlarged herself…opened her mouth without measure…their multitude… shall descend into it.”
What about these volcanos that are erupting in Hawaii and Guatemala? Those emissions are coming from somewhere in the depths of the earth. It is called by the media, – “lava, fire and brimstone.” Could these be spigots that are releasing something from the bowels of the earth? There are a number of these volcanos around the surface of the earth. Is this how hell enlarges its self? Do you believe your eyes when you watch this on the news? – SELAH!
FOUR QUESTIONS TO PONDER:
If there is no literal hell to avoid, then where is there cause for evangelism? 2.Why do evangelicals spend so much time and money and effort trying to save peoples souls? 3. What are they saving them from? 4. Why did Jesus die that wicked death on the cross if there is no hell to save people from? What are the answers to these questions if there is no literal hell?
FINAL QUESTION: How can a person know they won’t go to hell? You have probably already heard this but here it is again;
Believe in your heart that Jesus is who He said He was. Go to Him with some words of acceptance.
IE; – “Jesus, I believe you love me. I believe you will save me from that place called “hell” and take me to heaven when I die. I believe you are alive today to hear my prayer. Please come into my heart and save my soul, and forgive me of every thing I have done to displease God. I accept you as my Lord and Saviour from this day forward. Help me to learn more about you as I read your word. Thank you Lord for saving my soul! Amen
According to everything I have read in the scriptures, if you do this you can trust God to take you to heaven when you die. No more reason to worry about going to that awful place called “hell.”
The following verses are listed for those who want to see these references about hell in the scriptures;
Mt. 5:22, 29 -10:28 – 18:19 – 23 ;23 – Mark 9:43 – 45 &47 -2 Peter 2:4 – Pr. 15:24 – Is. 14:29 – Ps. 16:10 – Acts 2:31 – Deuteronomy 32:22 – Ps. 9:17 and 139:8 – Revelation 19:20,10,14,15

Many people have heard me teach as I traveled from church to church for a period of about 35 years, on the insights that God gave me for ‘successful living’ “now in this time.” And the borrow-free, debt-free lifestyle that God dreamed for His people in Deuteronomy chapter 15. Many of you purchased our materials and have “believed the good report”.
We humans are like a salmon fish, swimming upstream against the current, and climbing waterfalls to get to our destination. At times we are like those fish,
-they can’t get out and walk around those falls, – they don’t have feet.
-they can’t fly over those falls, – they don’t have wings.
So we do like they do. … facing the challenge, we do what seems impossible. We utilize what God has given us, (the faith of Jesus Christ) and we face the obstacles and hindrances, and kick it in gear. God has given us what it takes to get to the top… – and then are the spawning grounds where they (we) see themultiplication and increase.
REMEMBER : If we let the devil do our arithmetic, he uses subtraction and division. He keeps telling us; “You can’t do it.” But If we let God do our arithmetic, he uses ‘addition and multiplication. He keeps telling us; “You can do it. You can do all things through Christ who strengthens you.”SELAH! God’s promise is; “You shall lend and not borrow.” (Deuteronomy 15) Think the right thoughts, and move on up to higher ground. God has “plunged us to victory.”
This book shown below is now printed in Urdu language in Pakistan. Here is a recent letter from a pastor who read this book;
“...after coming home from my morning walk, I and Jamila my wife, got sick. She had pain in her bones. I felt stress in my legs. Yesterday I used your book teachings and applied the blood of Jesus and we received healing and change in our home atmosphere miraculously. Your book is great to attain immediate healing and deliverance.” (Anil Jasper)
When thinking changes, faith comes!
Below are some people who have received our free books, CD’s etcetera in Nigeria…
JIWO WUJI Benin, Nigeria, wrote; “Thank you for what you sent regards to my request. I’m so grateful for that, – it’s beyond words. YOU are a blessing in our lives. Your materials have proven helpful to me. Keep up your great work.”
PRISCILLA EFUJE wrote from Benin City, Nigeria; “…valuable tools in our hands. I received the materials meant for me, which you sent. I am saying a little prayer that God will smile on you, and send you all the blessings you deserve from God’s Angels…”
EFE SABBI from Benin City, Nigeria; “I’m so glad for the information sent for me…I have printed out and shared with others….who are also interested…are delighted for this useful information too. I have learned some truth and understanding… I did visit your website…and will direct some of my friends to see it’s contents…” I would like to receive a book, …some friends said this a good book. Also, CD’s would be useful…Thank you! EFE
There is no greater blessing in this life than to know we have been an ‘extension of God’s hands’ to those who cannot afford to pay. “Freelywe have received, freely we give.” We probably won’t reach everybody, but we can reach somebody, and they do pass it on, as mentioned in one of those letters.
Satan is a loser from the beginning. We NEVER LOSE because we DON’T QUIT! – We can climb that mountain!!

“…people from all languages will take firm hold…of his robe and say; ‘Let us go with you, because we have heard that God is with you.’” (Zech.8:23)
When the old prophet Zechariah made that statement to some covenant people, it really gave me pause, and opened up a whole new level of meditation for me.
QUESTION: What would make someone grab on to the shirt-tail of a person not of their own language, or ethnicity, and want to have what they have, and want to have their God. It’s because they saw their success and connected it with their God.
QUESTION: – Is that really God’s dream for His people?
God knows human nature. That’s why He loves to bless His people. Success draws attention! What we are, and what we do speaks so much more effectively than any words we say. The man Paul, writer of most of the New Testament letters, when teaching people about why Christ died, and what we have because of it; made this invitation to his followers: “Followme as I follow Christ.”
Grab my shirt tail…! Paul was convinced that his success as a believer was tightly connected to his success in gaining followers. We people listen, – and then we watch! We’ve seen the results of the apostle Paul’s life and influence. When success is attached to godliness, – we see the greatest following. People want to be successful, loved and blessed.
While we watch the current of major opposition that President Trump has and is functioning under, we continue to watch his influence increase. Not only here in America, but around the world.
QUESTION: Is it his words that has brought this about? – I think not! In fact, some of his words have made a lot of people angry. His record of success is what speaks for him the loudest?
I hope my point is clear to my reader by now. If we have what God Almighty wants us to have, and if we become what He wants us to be, we will never have trouble being an influence to people who are watching us, and then we can lead them to a better life. If you are like me, you like to read after people who have “been there and done that.” We never have to praise our own accomplishments. Just be! – and others will want what we have.
There are two things that will define us.
1. Our ‘patience’ when we are trying to climb up from the bottom;
2. Our ‘attitude‘ when we have reached to top!
If you have reached the top, there is no better way to spend the rest of your life than trying to help someone else get there too!
