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

Bartolomé Esteban Murillo - The Heavenly and E...

                 I was reading in Psalm 51 1-19 where David ,having been with Bathsheba , was pleading with GOD for a new direction in which to turn in Life. Verses 12-13 state ” A new heart create for me , GOD; renew within me a steadfast spirit. Do not drive me from before your face , nor take from me your Holy Spirit.” GOD is indeed Good!!!

               What David had realized was that his relationship with GOD was the most important aspect of his Life. The prophet Nathan had merely pointed out to David a simple fact which he already knew within his heart. He needed GOD more than anything in Life to lead and guide him in this world and beyond. Glory to our GOD!!!

 

     Brethren , our relationship with GOD is indeed the most important aspect in our Lives!!! It is in fact far more important than anything else which we encounter in our daily walk. More important than family ,friends ,work, wealth or health; our relationship with GOD guides our Earthly existence and places us in our own unique positioning for our Eternal Future. We are not human beings having a Spiritual experience; we are Spiritual beings having a human experience!!! This Life is our beginning, not our end!!! Thank you JESUS!!!!!!!

       We , as Church Age believers , have HIS Holy Spirit to help us get through this Life with more than a passing nod to those around us and an awareness of the world in which we live. We have the Power to move mountains ,heal the sick , raise the dead ,and much ,much more!!! We need only to empty ourselves of self and yield to HIS Will!!! HE will use us accordingly!!! Amen!!!

      ” Restore to me the gladness of your salvation.”

 ” GOD give to me a repentant heart like David!!!”

         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!!!

           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

             I was reading in Revelation 20 where all of the Dead and all of the Living will come before GOD in judgment . Some of us will spend Eternity with HIM in Heaven while some of us will spend an Eternity in Hell , separated from HIS Grace. I know without a doubt that my Eternity is with GOD!!! Thank you JESUS!!!

      The Feast of Atonement is the Holiest day of the Jewish year. It is a time for complete fasting and a time in which mankind can draw closer to GOD. In Jewish terms the  Day of Atonement  is called  YOM  KIPPUR . Kippur means Kafar and derives from the word Kofer which means to be “ransomed” or” redeemed”. Thank GOD for JESUS !!! We have been redeemed !!! We no longer need a goat in our place ,we have the Lamb!!! GOD is Good!!!

   After Trumpets we need to be ready for a time on Earth ruled by JESUS. Atonement prepares us for just that!!!  Should we be “asleep ” Atonement prepares us for an Eternity with GOD in Heaven. We need to afflict our souls in this preparation. We need HIS Covering!!! In HIS Grace we find that Covering!!! I so Love GOD!!!

   Headed for the Feast !!! We can not come empty-handed. Thank GOD again for JESUS!!!

   I Love you!!! Mark
