04261600      I was reading in the book of Acts, Chapter 3 where Peter had , in The Name of JESUS , healed a lame man who lay asking for alms at the temple. In doing so Peter had been a witness for CHRIST JESUS for all of those gathered at the temple at the time for prayer. They were able to see the Power of the Holy Spirit at work through Peter , a man who had denied JESUS while HE walked on earth. Those who witnessed had undoubtedly witnessed the trial  and death of CHRIST JESUS in the recent past. GLORY!!!

GOD has gifted all of us with Spiritual gifts that can be manifested in the Natural , all of us who truly believe. It is our duty and calling to use these gifts in a manner in which allows those around us to see the mighty power of a Living GOD!!! We are a special breed of people who have been called , in our individual lifetimes , to witness for CHRIST JESUS !!! We should do so.

As we draw closer to GOD HIS Love for us is unmistakable .  As it is written; no weapon formed against us shall prosper. With that knowledge we are able to move freely in this world without any interference from unclean Spirits or those individuals who call upon them for their support. We , like Peter , can grow in our Faith and move through this world with an understanding that we have Power ,HOLY SPIRIT Power!!!

I am headed to the Well!!! I Love you!!! May GOD Bless!!! Mark

Your God Is Here

Your God Is Here (Photo credit: sutton_steven)

    I was reading in JOB 23: 10 where even though we may take a wrong step now and then as long as we stay upon the Right path HE will perfect us. The verse states ,”HE knows the way that I take; when HE has tested me I shall come forth as Gold.” GOD is Good!!!

    As I move forth in this world doing my best from day to day to be more like HIM I am constantly reminded of just how flawed a human being I really am.  Oftentimes I consider myself to be among the worst to have walked this planet. My thoughts and actions just do not always seem to line-up with the Word of GOD. I need help. Thank GOD for JESUS!!!

     I take comfort in the knowledge that JOB was eventually redeemed by an All-Forgiving GOD. Even though he had doubts in his life he knew that he was on the right path and would ,sooner or later , be a better man for his trials. He knew that the testing would separate the impurities in his life ,much like heat separates the impurities from Gold ,and ,he accepted his path as the one in which GOD had chosen for him. He had a comfort in his soul. Glory!!!

         I was reading in Deuteronomy 2 1-3 where GOD was giving HIS people a new direction in which to take. Verse 3 states ” You have compassed this mountain long enough: turn you northward.”  Glory to GOD!!!

     As we enter into the new year ahead of us our hearts should be filled with more than just Hope. As children of a just GOD  who hear HIS Word and listens to HIS voice we should be filled with a Holy Expectation of things to come . The year ahead will be filled with miracles,signs,and wonders from the Heavens above!!! GOD is indeed Good!!!

       Oftentimes GOD is telling us to take a new direction and ,speaking for myself , I wonder if HE is speaking to me or just to those around me. I sometimes do not feel as though I deserve to hear from HIM  ,and, I know that I do not deserve all of the Blessings which HE has poured upon me!!! In my daily walk with HIM I am assured of one thing; HE Loves me!!! Thank you JESUS!!!

   I am so looking forward to the year ahead. As each day’s testings and temptings fall my way I am overwhelmed with HIS presence. I know that HE is with me each and every step!!! As with the children of Israel ,I know that this New Beginning brings me into Moab, However , knowing that HE is there makes the journey into this new year a delightful one!!! Amen!!!

    Headed to the Well!!!  I Love you!!!!!!! Mark

  I was reading in Revelation 21 1-7 where GOD is speaking about an everlasting in-gathering of HIS people. HE wants to dwell with them forever in Eternity Future. GOD is good!!!

    It was GOD’S plan all along to live forever with those who believed in HIM. To dwell forever with those who Hoped as HE Hoped ,and , Loved as HE Loved. When all is said and done HE will be with us in the New Jerusalem and we shall be with HIM!!! Glory to GOD!!!

      There is a Blessed Assurance knowing the promise of GOD to bring us out of bondage and into freedom. Out of this world and into the next.  Verse 4 states  ” HE will wipe away every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain. For the old order of things have passed away .” Thank you JESUS!!!

      Tabernacles is the last of the Seven “Prophetic” Feasts of our Lord. We will all one day be called out to live with GOD forever. I am so looking forward to that day!!! Life in this realm is interesting ,and ,I am so thankful for the opportunity to be experiencing this Life ,however , bring on Heaven!!! Bring me into HIS Glory!!!

    Let’s get this party started!!!

      I Love you!!!!!!! Mark

   I was reading in 1 Corinthians15  51-53 where the church will be Raptured to be with GOD . The field workers  will enter HIS Temple. GOD is indeed Good!!!

     Seems as though everybody knows when the Rapture will take place but me. I cannot go on-line without being inundated with false predictions from all around the globe.  In the book of Matthew 24 36-41  JESUS states that no man knows the hour HE will return . Verse 42 states ” Watch  therefore: for you  know not what hour your Lord doth come. ” Thank you JESUS!!!

      I know in my heart that it really is irrelevant when the “end” will be. I humbly believe that our “end” is near the moment we are born. I myself can’t wait to transition to my next life  , however , I will wait untill that time without much ado about nothing!!! Amen!!!

   When GOD spared Abraham with a ram for sacrifice instead of his son  we get a real glimpse of GOD’S grace!!! I see a need to always be prepared for the sounding of Trumpets. At that time GOD will “call out” HIS Church again. We are all going to be rejoicing. Hallelujah!!!

      Should I spot me a ram caught by his horns in a thicket I too shall have a shofar!!!

 ” In a twinkling of an eye”; Love it!!!-

  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
