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!!!

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

           I was reading in Matthew 7  7 -12 where JESUS is describing how we as believers should live our lives. Verse 12 states  ”  Therefore whatever you desire for men to do to  you , you shall also do to them ; for this is the Law and the Prophets.” Glory to GOD!!!

    GOD has put into place in our lives a way in which we can have life in abundance. There is a pattern in Life  which we can follow  that depends primarily upon our Faith , and , how we use our Faith in everyday Life.  I know that in my own Life as a believer I have come to develop a sense of expectancy in almost every area in my  daily walk as I know that GOD hears my voice and is willing to give freely based upon my Faith and the expectations created by the aforementioned. As I continue to grow in Christ I see manifestations every day of just how much the Holy Spirit is helping me. Thank you JESUS!!!

    GOD wants to Bless us!!!  We need only to believe that GOD wants to Bless us and then act accordingly. The basic problem within the Church today is the fact that the Church is full of Believers who do not believe. I am not sure about the heart of others ,however , I know that as for myself Life has made me a Believer. As I have experienced more and more of GOD’S Love in my life my belief has only grown stronger and my Love for GOD , and for others , more immense. GOD is indeed Good!!!

    Headed to the Well!!!

Andrea Mantegna's Agony in the Garden, circa 1...

Image via Wikipedia

        I was reading in Mark 14 32-41 where JESUS was in the Garden of  Gethsemane to spend some time with HIS Father in prayer. Verse 36 states ” ABBA ,Father , HE said , Everything is possible for you. Take this cup from me . Yet , not what I will , but what you will.” JESUS was asking HIS Father for direction in HIS Life at a moment in which HE really found HIMSELF in need of the next right thing. HE looked to HIS Father for the answer. GOD is Good!!!

   I remember that when I was growing up I spent most of my time with my grandparents due to the fact that my parents were divorced and my dad could simply not handle all five of us kids. I was more than a handful as a child and just a bit too much for any one person. I spent quite a bit of time with my father , however , knowing how busy he was I never got around to trying to develop a close relationship with him. After he was murdered by his wife and her bodyguard in the country of Panama I regretted my decisions to keep myself from becoming close to anyone. I remember thinking that I should have brought my dad to CHRIST!!! I have been talking about JESUS for most of my life yet  let every opportunity to lead my dad go astray. I know that my father had more than enough evidence to convince him of the need for JESUS and that ,in fact , he could have made the proper choice before he passed on from this Life. I Hope and Pray in the name of JESUS that he did just that !!! Amen!!!

    I am not so much bound in thought of my Earthly father as I am my Father who is in Heaven. GOD is my Father!!! I so Love my Father GOD!!! There is never a time when I cannot , like JESUS , go to my Father in prayer for the next right thing. HE has Blessed and continues to Bless me with so many Blessings that they are beyond my imagination.  HE is my Protector and my Sheild, my Comforter and my Hope. HE is my Salvation!!! Thank you JESUS!!!

    This Father’s Day please reach out to your dad. He more than likely is waiting to hear from you. If he is ” asleep” and no longer with us please ask your Father in heaven to give him a message. He will get it!!! While you’re at it do not forget to tell your Father GOD  “Happy Father’s Day “.  HE has been waiting as well!!!

  Happy Father’s Day!!!

 I Love you!!!!!!! Mark

An etching by Jan Luyken illustrating Matthew ...

Image via Wikipedia

   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

The Resurrection from Grünewald's Isenheim Alt...

Image via Wikipedia

         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

View of Mountains in Zion National Park, Utah,...

   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
