THE PROPHET SAMUEL. The Fresco Painting. Circa...

Image via Wikipedia

   I was I was reading in 1 Corinthians 14 1 – 33  where  the Holy Spirit Gift of Prophecy was greater than the Holy Spirit Gift of Tongues. I myself agree with the Apostle Paul on this matter. When we put forth Prophesy what we are doing is helping those around us most in need. We understand what is needed and we speak to that need. To speak in Tongues and no-one understand is indeed just like speaking to the air!!! Without a man or woman Gifted with the Gift of Interpretation ,Tongues serve mostly to  Edify those who speak in them . Tongues help the unbeliever believe yet do very little to aid those of us who are ” well seasoned” Christians. As we grow in Christ JESUS we need to develop an expectation which requires more!!! Thank you JESUS!!!

     I wish that all of those who call themselves believers would start to  Speak those things that are not as though they were . We could change the landscape of the entire populace worldwide.  I was speaking to a young man the other night on this matter and explained Life with the Holy Spirt Gift of Prophecy like this ; if we go out in New York City and visualize a fig tree ,speak that fig tree into existence and then start walking toward it , then we can get to the tree and start eating figs. The Holy Spirit has Gifted us with Power!!! We need to walk in that Power!!! Glory!!!

   I Prophecy that that my Love for you continues to grow!!!

   I Love you!!!!!!! Mark

        I was reading in Acts 3 1-8 where Peter and John had gone to the temple together at the time of prayer,  and,  seeing a man lame from birth Peter felt compelled to heal him .  Verse Six [6] states   Then Peter said ,  ” Silver and gold I have none ; but such that I have give I thee : in the name of JESUS CHRIST of Nazareth rise up and walk .” Glory to GOD!!!

    When asked about  ” Faith Healing ” I always respond in the same manner . YES!!! I  myself  have been healed from a sickness from which there was no known cure . That was in 1978 and today not only do I feel as though I could overcome the world ;   I have!!!  Thank you JESUS!!!

       JESUS asked us to pray for the sick , we should pray for the sick!!!  Whenever I have an opportunity to allow the Holy Spirit of GOD to work through me , I do. I personally do not want anyone in my immediate family of Blood and friends to feel ill. GOD has made provision for that illness.

   When JESUS went to the Cross HE took our sickness with HIM!!! The whipping in which He endured was to assure us that by the stripes across HIS back we have been healed!!! There is no way in which I could ever repay HIM for what HE has done for me except to say ” I LOVE You LORD !!!”   Mercy!!!

           Allow  GOD to work through you and heal someone today!!! Witness!!!

   I Love you !!!!!!! Mark

   I was reading in 1 John 4 1-3  where we are to “test’ the spirits around us due to the fact that many false Prophets have gone out into the world. John goes on to write how we can know that the spirit is from and of GOD. Thank you JESUS!!!

 The discerning of Spirits is a Gift from the Holy Spirit. It enables us to distinguish Good from Evil. It makes you aware!!! As a person grows in his or her relationship with GOD a kind and gentile Spirit of Discernment is developed through the Love of all things pure , however ,  the Spirit of Discernment given by the Holy Spirit to those GOD chooses removes any doubt of Good or Evil in our presence. It is a Gift that guards and protects us in our Christian walk. Using this Gift in the Power of the Holy Spirit enables us to walk boldly through life , even should we find ourselves  surrounded by darkness in our callings. Glory to GOD!!!

     Remember , both Good and Evil Spirits operate according to the condition of our souls. As believers we need to awake each and every morning and call upon GOD to dwell within us with HIS Holy Spirit. When we are in constant contact with GOD we find ourselves under HIS Favor and more likely to receive HIS Gifts!!!  Prayer works!!! Amen!!!

    I am so thankful that Spring is in the air!!!

   I Love you!!!!!!! Mark

holy ghost fire tongues

  I was reading in  1 Corinthians 12 8-11 where one of the gifts given to us by the Holy Spirit is the Gift of Tongues. It seems as though most of the people who I deal with on a daily basis have been given this particular manner in which to witness to the unbeliever. They are able to edify ,[charge-up] , themselves whenever possible.  I know from my own personal experiences that when we use a spiritual gift we benefit greatly by the closeness which we feel with our Lord and Savior!!! Glory

           Scriptures mention speaking in tongues Thirty-Five [35] times for a reason . In my humble opinion Tongues is the universal language spoken in Heaven. Regardless of which Spiritual Gifts we have been given , in Heaven we will all speak in Tongues. Thank you JESUS!!!

     Imagine sitting in a room worshiping JESUS and down comes Tongues of Fire which fall on everyone and enables them to speak with GOD. I certainly would have Loved to have been in that group!!! I am Blessed and Highly Favored beyond measure with my walk with our Lord , however , I still would have Loved to have been in that group!!! GOD is Good!!!

       “The Tongues of Angels” ; I am Blessed to know so many Angels!!!

     I Love you!!!!!!! Mark

Miracle of Love

   I was reading in Acts 2 16 -21 where GOD will allow us to see an outpouring of Miracles in the ” last days'” to assure mankind of HIS fulfillment of plans!!! Wonders in the Heavens ,  and , signs on the Earth below . GOD is so Good!!!

  Now GOD can perform a Miracle at HIS whim ,or , as a result of anyone’s prayer , however , many of us are given a special anointing so we can carry out our Calling and witness for HIM. It is always GOD working through us , not us , in which the Miracles are performed. All of the Glory belongs to GOD!!! As we minister to others extraordinary “things” occur which simply can not be explained in any “natural” manner. Thank you JESUS!!!

   Miracles are used to point out GOD’S purpose .

Elijah brought down fire , however , it was not to prove that GOD could bring down fire , rather to show Israel the one True GOD. When JESUS healed a man who was born blind it illustrated GOD’S healing Power yet showed how we are to open our spiritual eyes. The raising of Lazarus from the dead showed that Jesus is the Lord of both Life and Death ,and ; the resurrection of JESUS  lets us know that Satan’s power is broken forever!!! AMEN!!!

    My favorite type of Miracle is the Miracle of Multiplication. Just knowing that what I can see for me is not all that there is for me gives me goosebumps. A vision always produces provision and I have lots of visions!!! Glory!!!

   Headed out to pick some plums from my tree. Wait a minute ; I have no plum tree. Time for GOD to show up!!!

 I Love you!!!!!!! Mark
