The Fullness of His Grace! February, 2013

John 1:14-18 (#1 of 18 Bible Verses about Grace)
14The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only,who came from the Father, full of grace and truth. 15John testifies concerning him. He cries out, saying, “This was he of whom I said, ‘He who comes after me has surpassed me because he was before me.’ ” 16From the fullness of his grace we have all received one blessing after another. 17For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. 18No one has ever seen God, but God the One and Only,who is at the Father’s side, has made him known.

Get Your Healing In 2013! January 1, 2013

This is for faith people.  If you are not leave this alone.  The interesting thing is that faith is a very simple thing, but for human reasoning it won’t work.  Really smart people who have a lot of confidence in their own abilities have a really tough time with faith.  God knows this; yet because He is so good and loving He has given every man a portion of faith and you don’t need much! 

AGODHEALS

 

And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.  Matthew 17: 20

“For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.” (Romans 12:3)

Okay, it’s been established that everyone has the ability to have faith for whatever they need.

It just so happens that I have experience in trying to get healed.  I remember when I could not walk…well.  I became disgusted.  I became desperate.  I looked at people older than me and younger than me and no where that I look did anyone have that problem.  Now I love God, but I have read His promises in the bible.  There was nothing to tell me to be happy or satisfied with my plight or my lot in life.  In fact, His word says the opposite!

The proper thing to do would have been to dig out my healing scriptures and saturate myself in them…I’ve done that many times before.  So I just went before God and my every thought was on looking for His direction, guidance and solutions for me.  God is faithful and so He sent solutions.  My feet were healed and I now walk several miles per week…this from someone who could barely walk to the car.  

So in this Year of Great Grace…make up your mind to do two things:

1. Get your healing.

2. Find  out what you can do for God.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Pencil Sharpener Healing! By Elaine Davenport December,

Emotionalhealing-and-restorationAWomanSaved

I do not know what your problem is; but God has a solution for you.  Think back to the times in life when you were successful.  Why do you think that happened?  It’s because you were consistent, you would not give up, your adrenaline was pumping,  you found the winning formula so to speak.    You had a plan, you worked your plan and it worked!   Yahoo!   Well guess what…God requires the same of you…only it’s a better plan.

All you need is a little faith (He gave you that) and some healing scriptures from the Word of God.  Before I went to bed last night, I was reading a Book Of Prayer; actually a study guide.  It Blessed me,  My faith was amped up.  Middle of the night, I get this awful headache…so I lay hands on myself and pray…it goes away.  It came back two more times and I did it again!   That third time that I lay hands on myself I told it to leave!  It did not come back! 

Have you ever seen a dull pencil?  It’s of little use.  However, if you get a pencil sharpener; it becomes just like new.  The Word of God on Healing and Faith will sharpen you…take a note of that.

WORD:

Romans 8:32“He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?”

Mark 16:17-18“And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name . . . they shall lay hands on the sick, and

Psalm 34:19“Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the LORD delivers him out of them all.”

 

Jeremiah 30:17“For I will restore health unto you, and I will heal you of your wounds, saith the Lord.”

Isaiah 53:4-5“Surely He hath borne our griefs (Hebrew: sicknesses) and carried our sorrows (Hebrew: pains) yet we did esteem Him stricken, smitten of God and afflicted. But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement of our peace was upon Him; and by His stripes we are healed.” they shall recover.”

Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.

1 John 1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

Hebrews 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

Mark 9:23 Jesus said to him, “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.”

Matthew 13:58 Now He did not do many mighty works there because of their unbelief.

 

 

Memorial Day…Is a Special Day! May, 2012

On rhe last day of May in the United States of America we celebrate Memorial Day.  It is a day that we celebrate our soldiers past and present.  It is  now officially observed on the last Monday in May.  At our church they ask anyone who is a Veteran to stand and every claps.  It is a warm robust moment.  It’s also a little teary eyed for many of us who have lost loved ones or whose heart strings are tugged just thinking about the love, faithfulness and sacrices of those who served our country and the depths of that service.

 

I am a patriot.  I love my country, but more than that I am proud of those who have and do love our country so much so that they would serve in any capacity in our Armed Forces!  It sure makes me thankful and grateful for their service.

 

I found the Following article ….it’s great….

 

 

Soldier of God

G.I.
God Incarnate
Saviour of the world

 


I am a soldier in the army of my God. The Lord Jesus Christ is my Commanding Officer. The Holy Scripture is my code of conduct. Faith, prayer and the Word are my weapons of warfare. I have been taught by the Holy Spirit, trained by experience, tried by adversity and tested by fire.I am a volunteer in this army, and I am enlisted for eternity. I will not get out, sell out, be talked out or pushed out. I am faithful, reliable, capable and dependable. If my God needs me, I am there. I am a soldier. I am not a baby. I do not need to be pampered, petted, primed up, pumped up, picked up, or pepped up. I am a soldier. No one has to call me, remind me, write me, visit me, entice me or lure me. I am a soldier. I am not a wimp. I am in place, saluting my King, obeying His orders, praising His name and building His kingdom! No one has to send me flowers, gifts, food, cards or candy, or give me handouts. I do not need to be cuddled, cradled, cared for or catered to. I am committed. I cannot have my feelings hurt bad enough to turn me around. I cannot be discouraged enough to turn me aside. I cannot lose enough to cause me to quit.

When Jesus called me into this army, I had nothing. If I end up with nothing, I will still come out ahead. I will win. My God has and will continue to supply all of my need. I am more than a conqueror. I will always triumph. I can do all things through Christ. The devil cannot defeat me. People cannot disillusion me. Weather cannot weary me. Sickness cannot stop me. Battles cannot beat me. Money cannot buy me. Governments cannot silence me, and hell cannot handle me. I am a soldier. Even death cannot destroy me. For when my Commander calls me from His battlefield, He will promote me to captain and then allow me to rule with Him. I am a soldier in the army, and I’m marching claming victory. I will not give up. I will not turn around.

I am a soldier, marching heaven-bound. Here I Stand! Will you stand with me?

The army of the Lord is an all volunteer force. No one will be drafted, and those who serve will do so eagerly rather than grudgingly. That army will make up “the body of Christ” (1Corinthians 12:25-27). We are to be “a good soldier of Jesus Christ” (2 Timothy 2:3-4). We are to “put on the whole armour of God” (Ephesians 6:10-11).

 

Romans 13:12, “…let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light.”

Know your enemy: The “wiles of the devil” is our enemy, “We wrestle not against flesh and blood but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, and against spiritual wickedness in high places” (Ephesians 6:11-12, 2 Corinthians 10:3). People are not your enemy, we are not to fight against one another. The things of the world are our enemy (James 4:4, Romans 12:2, 1 John 2:15, Luke 16:15).

A good soldier knows his weapon. We are to take the “helmet of salvation” and “the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God” (Ephesians 6:17). When Jesus said, “…I came not to send peace, but a sword ” (Matthew 10:34), He didn’t mean a literal sword. He came to set men striving for a better world with a soldiers fervor and force of spirit.

Know your weapon: “study to show thyself approved unto God” (2 Timothy 2:15). Know your weapon: we are to “search the scriptures” (Acts 17:11, Luke 16:29, Isaiah 8:20; 34:16), and compare scripture with scripture (Isaiah 28:10) to come to the Truth. “For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God” (2 Corinthians 10:4). “Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him” (Proverbs 30:5, Ephesians 6:16). We are to put on the “breastplate of righteousness” (Ephesians 6:14), and our “feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace” (Ephesians 6:15).

A good soldier stays in step. We are to walk in the “same steps as Christ” (2 Corinthians 12:18, 1 Peter 2:21). And most important, our secret weapon: we are to be “praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit” (Ephesians 6:18), so that you may “open your mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel” (Ephesians 6:19). “We are more than conquerors through him that loved us” (Romans 8:37). We are “fellowsoldiers” (Philippians 2:25, Philemon 1:2).

 

“A man may have to die for our country, but no man must, in any exclusive sense, live for his country. He who surrenders himself without reservation to the temporal claims of a nation, or a party, or a class is rendering to Caesar that which, of all things, most emphatically belongs to God; himself.” C.S. Lewis.
