Amazing Things Still Happen Today



 

 
Recently my daughter Judie and I attended a Glory Conference with Joshua Mills, as he inspired us to seek Jesus and enter into His presence. 

This can be done by silently being with Jesus as you pray and read your Bible, but also as you sing and praise the Lord with a Joyful Noise. 
 
Keep Jesus first in your life, and allow the Holy Spirit to become real to you in a "personal" way. 

From the Bible, we consider the life of Jesus as He ministered on earth and wondrous miracles happened as he preached,  healed the sick, and cast out demons.  

On one occasion - - After feeding a crowd of 5000, Jesus went to the mountain to pray, and the disciples entered the boat to go to the other side leaving Jesus there.  When a storm arose, Jesus came to them as he walked on the water.  They were afraid. . . (of course) but at his command to not be fearful, they allowed him to get into their boat.  IMMEDIATELY they were (transported) to the other side.  The people knew Jesus was not in the boat when the disciples left, so they asked how did you get here Jesus?   

Jesus called himself the "son of man," because when he came to earth, he left ALL of his "God powers." in heaven and became flesh on earth.  Everything Jesus did on earth was by listening to his Father God, and then moving in the anointing he received when he was baptized by John the Baptist.  Remember when the Holy Spirit descended on him in the form of a dove?  That began the anointing as he was filled with the Holy Spirit - - - same as we can be filled with the Holy Spirit when we accept Jesus into our life.   

Amazing things happened to Jesus as he walked with His FATHER GOD.  At times the religious leaders tried to kill him as they were not believers.  Times of danger, guess what?  Jesus passed through the crowd and seemed to disappear.  WOW, did that really happen you say?   

Remember Philip preaching to the eunuch in the desert.  After believing that Jesus is the Messiah,  at the eunuch's request, Philip baptized him, and IMMEDIATELY Philip was lifted up and appeared in another city. (transported) - - WOW do things like this happen today?  Not as often as they should, but they do. 

Realizing that strange to us, many things in the Bible are actually true, and we can expect similar things to occur today.

At the Glory conference, Rev Mills told a story about himself and a valuable ring that had been given to him but sadly to say that during a stay at a certain hotel, it was lost.  The valuable ring also had sentimental value because it has been passed down from family to family.   He was extremely sorrowful about the missing ring. 

One day in prayer as he cried before the Lord, he asked for help in finding his ring and having it restored to him.  He was praising the Lord and the presence of God was like a cloud heavy in his room.  A vision began to appear before his eyes, and he saw himself walking in a quiet neighborhood.  One of the homes stood out to him and the walked up to the house and opened the door.  As he walked through the home, he entered into a bedroom and noticed a tall dresser, on which sat his missing ring.   

God told him to reach out and take his ring.  He did as he was instructed, and grabbed the ring in his left hand.  Immediately the vision ended and he was once again in his own bedroom - - - and he felt something solid in his hand.  There it was his missing ring, that had been stolen, but was now returned.  (true story)
~ ~ ~ 

In life, the enemy has stolen many things from us.  Some through ignorance, or neglect on our part, and some through NO fault of our own.  Understand that God desires to bring back to you things that the devil stole.  Perhaps it was your marriage, your job, your finances, your health, or your children taken from you outside of your control.   

God can and will bring you peace to go forward regardless of the situation, but in many cases He desired to bring a restoration of things lost. 

Believe God is for you and not against you.  What he has done in the past, He will do today.  Place your trust in Jesus, and get as close to Him as you can.  Know that you are His Child and as a Child of God, his DNA becomes a part of you.  God is Holy,  He has character to keep His Word,  He is healthy, He is rich, in that he needs nothing because he has more than enough. 
 
Walk with Jesus and you will never be disappointed.

Moving Mountains in Simple Steps



 
 
James says in simple terms.   Get close to God and He will get close to God,  Repent and keep your sins under the blood, and your mind focused on what is important.
 
          James 4:8  Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded.
 
We are meeting to pray over our city and asking God to remove Mountains that are in our citizens.  Many in our city are full of doubt and unbelief; Pressed down with Mountains of habits and addictions.  Full of fear with Mountains of pride and rebellion and self will.
 
As we prepare to take authority over these mountains, Mark shares how to receive - - -
 
Step 1.  Have Faith in God:
          Mark 11:22 And Jesus answering saying, Have faith in God.
 
Step 2.  Open your mouth and Speak
                Mark 11:23  For verily I say unto you, That who ever shall say unto this mountain,   Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart,    but shall believe that those things which he says shall come to pass; he shall have what ever he says.
 
Step 3.  Believe and not doubt
          Mark 11:24  Therefore I say unto you, What things so ever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.
 
Step 4.  Forgive if  you desire your personal forgiveness
          Mark 11:25 And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.
 
We are reminded in the Lord's prayer that first we come to God to honor Him,  Next we are able to ask for our bread and our needs, but Jesus emphasizes the importance of forgiving others.
 
Our families are a big part of our life, and as young children, mountains are put upon us.  Parents and relatives, friends, teachers do not always understand the power that there is in words, and as most of us have experienced, words that hurt and deeply cut into our soul.  These words make deep wounds and cause us to become easily offended.
 
As a young person, the sad thing is that we take those harmful words to heart and believe them, not realizing they are not true. 
 
If anyone has ever told you "leave us alone, we don't want you here," or "you can't do anything right," or "you are not really loved,"  or "you are not the pretty one,"  or you are not smart and will always fail."   Often these types of statements are often said in jest, or in anger, and they are NOT true, because they are lies, - but believed by the young child. 
 
So what happens as the child grows up.  They remember those words, not really connecting that the words are not true, and believe everyone they meet must be saying those same words about them.  
Although a blessing from a parent figure will help to counteract childhood hurts, the major point in healing these hurts is for you to pull up the memory of your parent, sibling, teacher or friend and the words they said - -  Then determine to say verbally,  "I forgive you."  Do this with each face that comes to your mind.  Forgiveness is powerful.
 
Lastly take time to fast forward to times later in life when you experienced pain from words and again say with your mouth - - "I forgive you."    Believe the mountain is gone.
 
As I was teaching the Lord spoke to me and said, Once the mountain is now level ground, it is time to plant a "Tree of Righteousness." 
 
I shared this with our prayer warriors, and said, as the many mountains in our city are moved, we shall plant a tree where there was once a mountain.  In our city we shall plant an orchard of trees.

JUST THE  BEGINNING ©
Words and Music by Robert R. Moon - - Orchestration by James Valle 9/95


 
Verse 1

Though I have entered through an open door,

Don’t think that you won’t see me anymore,

It’s in your heart I will remain,

Until we’re together once again,

 

Chorus 

It’s not the ending, just the beginning,

All is so new to me at last I’m truly free.

My soul is filled with joy

That I’ve not know before,

And just to think I will live forever more.

 

Verse 2 

It’s not the time to feel remorse,

Thinking I should have done so much more.

Nothing can be done to change the past,

Though we’re apart, our love will always last.

Beyond the vale of tears

Not counting time in years,

The race is won at last, forget the past, - -

- -  At last I’m free.

Until you join me here, your memory is dear,

And just to think we will live for evermore.

 

Chorus 

It’s not the ending, just the beginning,

All is so new to me at last I’m truly free.

My soul is filled with joy

I have found, that Jesus died for me
