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

   I was reading in Acts 2 2-4 where , during the Feast of Pentecost ,those who accepted CHRIST JESUS were filled with the Holy Spirit by what appeared to be tongues of fire. They began to speak in a Heavenly language ; each to their own. Thank you JESUS!!!

    This Feast was established to commemorate the time which Moses received the Ten Commandments and the whole law .  This year the Feast of  Pentecost is on Sunday , June 12 .  What I find interesting is the fact that on that day  ,with Moses angry ,Three Thousand Israelites died in their sin , and , when the Holy Spirit came upon the whole church ; Three Thousand  souls were saved. GOD is indeed Good!!!

    The Fulfillment of Pentecost came with the giving , by JESUS , of the Holy Spirit to  the church. Prophetically the two loaves baked with leaven represented the entire church of  CHRIST , sin and all!!!  Both Jews and Gentiles alike are brought into HIS Kingdom. Glory to GOD!!!

    This is the last of the  Four Feast which have been fulfilled to date.  The remaining  Three Feast represent times in our lives which are yet to come. Living today in this dispensation of time known as the  “Church Age”  we believers are so Blessed and  Highly favored with the Power which comes from having more than just the Eternal Security  of the “Church Age” believer , we have Gifts from the Holy Spirit which enable us to imitate CHRIST. YES!!!

  The Church is not a building which people gather to worship , the church is the people . Church defined literally means ” those called out ”  As GOD’S people were called out of Egypt we too have been called out of our sin and should be thankful that we belong to the Body of CHRIST.Amen!!!

  Going to the fields to see what has been left for me!!!

  I Love you!!!!!!! Mark

The Resurrection from Grünewald's Isenheim Alt...

         I was reading in 1 Corinthians 15   20-23 how CHRIST JESUS  is the firstfruits of those who slept. What an awesome sacrifice by an awesome GOD!!! Not only did JESUS come out of the grave , HE overcame death and others followed after HIM!!!  Matthew 27   52-53 states   ” The tombs were also opened. And many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised , and coming out of the tombs after HIS resurrection they went into the Holy city and appeared to many.”  Talk about fertility!!!   Our Lord offered to the FATHER  the ” early crops ” of what will be an awesome Harvest!!! Thank you JESUS!!!

   In my humble opinion the resurrection of JESUS should be celebrated everyday!!! What our JESUS did was fulfill all three of the Spring Feasts ; sacrifice on Passover , in the grave on Unleavened Bread , resurrection on Firstfruits, then HE gave us the authority to countdown the Fifty days untill Pentecost with a new expectation!!! GOD is Good!!!

      Before HE ascended to HIS Father JESUS met with HIS people and fellowships with them. HE ministered to them and then disappeared with a Promise. The Holy Spirit was on HIS way to be with us.  Pentecost has new meaning!!! Glory to GOD!!!

       Oftentimes the winters are pretty harsh here in Kissimmee ,yet , every Spring I witness new growth in both the natural and spiritual realms. GOD deserves the Firstfruits of that growth!!!!!!!

 Giving GOD a wave offering !!!

 I Love you!!!!!!! Mark

I was reading in Luke 10 1-24 where JESUS is telling HIS disciples how blessed  they were for being able to witness what they had witnessed and to hear what they had heard. They had in-fact walked the earth with the living GOD.  All Seventy-Two of them had gone out, two by two , and went throughout the region and did HIS work and had returned happy and full of JOY.Glory to GOD!!!

We ,the now living , are just as Blessed!!! We live in a world in which all of it’s peoples will soon bow down before our LORD. In our generation we will see the triumphant return of CHRIST JESUS!!!In our generation!!! Thank you JESUS!!!

I can not imagine the Evil which perverted the world in it’s beginning to a point where in which GOD destroyed all of the living , save Noah and family , with a flood . Things must have been pretty bad indeed. Spiritual uncleanliness must have  been at an all time high; untill now!!!Praise GOD!!!

Our GOD does not tolerate the type of Evil which is in the world today without giving us a Knowledge of HIS inevitable judgments which HE promised will follow.We are so Blessed to be living in these days. There may be a few hardships in this life ,however , for those of us who choose to overcome this world , Joy is on it’s way. JESUS is coming again!!!!!!! GOD is Good!!!

We have the same Power which those disciples had!!!I’m going to use mine!!!

Headed to the well!!!

I love you!!!!!!!  Mark

Holy Spirit,

            I was reading in  Romans 8  1- 39 where we ,as Christians , were called to live like CHRIST.  GOD has given us a way in which we can overcome this world with all of it’s groanings!!! Thank you JESUS!!! Thank GOD for HIS Holy Spirit!!!

      I can not imagine how I could ever possibly be like CHRIST  without living my life with the full Knowledge that I need HIS Holy Spirit to dwell within me always!!! The things of this world are really just so much about nothing , yet , Satan just does not give up. Going through each and every day under attack has become common to me, however , winning my daily battles against Unclean Spirits has become common as well!!! GOD is Good ; all the time!!!

        We must push forward everyday with the Knowledge that CHRIST JESUS is in us . Verse 28 states that in ALL things GOD works for the Good for those who Love HIM , who have been called according to HIS purpose. GLORY!!! Verses  38 and 39 state that we are convinced that neither Death nor Life ; neither Angels nor Demons ; neither the Present nor Future nor any Powers ; neither Height nor Depth nor anything else in all creation will be able to separate us from the Love of GOD that is in CHRIST JESUS our LORD!!! Now that’s my kind of promise!!!

    Going walking in the Prophetic Realm !!! I Love you!!!!!!! Mark

             I was reading in Mark 16  14 – 20 where JESUS has come back from death and was telling HIS disciples the full range of their commission for HIM. HE wanted them to reach out to all of Creation!!! HE told them to proclaim the “Good News ”  to all of the world!!! Glory!!!

    In our generation we have abilities that are endless to reach out to others. I am so amazed at the number of readers of this blog and the depth of readership worldwide. GOD is Good!!!  

   GOD knew that there would come a time where in which HIS people would communicate freely and with ease across all of the barriers which Satan would construct!!! HE knew HIS people would respond to HIS Love for them. HE knew!!! OUR GOD is truly an Awesome GOD!!!

        I claim the Blood of JESUS over everyone who reads these words; GOD Loves you!!!

  Headed to the well!!! Thirsty!!! I love you!!!!!!! Mark
