        I was reading in Numbers 12 1- 8 where Moses was at odds with Miriam and Aaron about his marriage to an Ethiopian woman. They were concerned that prophecy could be at a lull due to his action. GOD called them out and explained that this was certainly not the case at all. Verse  6 states ” And HE said , now hear My words. If there be a Prophet among you  , I the Lord will make Myself known unto him in a vision , and will speak unto him in a dream. ”   GOD is Good!!!

     Brethren , regardless of how you may feel about the Church , the whole Body of CHRIST , or those in authority within , GOD is still speaking today through men and women who have a heart for HIS Word,  [ read the Book of Joel ] . In my humble opinion HIS Holy Spirit has been poured out upon many in this Day and Age ,and ,  HIS Gift of Prophecy lives inside many who choose to believe. Now is a time to listen!!! Thank You JESUS!!!

    As promised , and GOD is a promise keeper , there are many false Prophets sounding their own trumpets for a much lesser power than our GOD today. We recognize the True Prophets  by , not only the words which they speak , but their actions as well. GOD has given us a unique ability to discern what is of HIM and what is not!!! Glory be to an Almighty GOD!!!

   Time to leave Moab my friends and enter into our promises. In order to know our way we need to listen to those who have been given directions from GOD and heed those directions. First we need to listen . This is our year!!!

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

Miriam's Song by Samuel Hirszenberg

           I was reading in Numbers 21 16 -18 where Moses was ordered by GOD to gather the people so that HE may give them Water. The people of GOD , HIS chosen , stood along side of one 12 streams that the dried-up Well normally filled and sang a song to engage the Holy Spirit to bring forth water from the Well and fill the streams. The task of supplying water for over 600,ooo Israelites  was nothing when they acted in unison to engage their Faith. Imagine  the scene as the people told the Well ” Spring up , O Well” and the water overflowed!!! GOD is Good!!!

         Friends , we should have that kind of Faith!!! Moses had come out of Egypt a runaway and found provision at the  Well of  Midian to , years  later , leading his people to another Well of provision!!! In both cases what JESUS was offering was Hope for the Hopeless and rest for the weary. Provision for those in need!!! Thank you JESUS!!!

    In my humble opinion the Wells in the  Old and New Testaments  represent Prayer , and ,what comes forth from the Wells is the Holy Spirit . GOD showing up in our lives to answer our needs. All of them!!! We just need to act on our Faith. If striking a rock brings forth Provision we need to be clobbering rocks , if singing to a Well brings forth Provision we need to be lifting our voices!!!  Regardless of our position in life should the priest daughters need help we need to draw water for them!!! Whatever GOD ask us to do we  need to be obedient and just do it!!! GOD has a plan for us ; we need to understand that plan and partake of the Living Waters in our lives!!! Amen!!!

    Warming up today .I think that I will go and jump in the Jordan!!!

   I Love you!!!!!!! Mark

The Israelites Leaving Egypt, Oil on canvas 37...

    I was reading in  Exodus 15 1 – 21  where Moses and Miriam and all of the Israelites were so happy for the children of GOD who had been delivered out of Egypt that they began singing!!! Verse 13 states ” In your unfailing Love You will lead the people You have redeemed. In your strength you will guid them to your Holy dwelling.” GOD is Good!!!

   You must know that the Israelites were extremely happy at that moment!!! They had been brought out of bondage; they had found a freedom previously unkown.Glory to GOD!!!

     Real and true Love , such as GOD’S Love , Agape love, has  direction. There is a purpose in Life for Love , therefore a definite path by which that Love can travel!!! As we go through this life and find our own purpose in Life it is never without the Love of GOD which we can strive for that purpose. Love is not just an emotional response to a given situation. Love is a real and valuable tool in which we should use to help us deal with life itself on a daily basis. As GOD has Loved us we should reach out ,in Love , for all of those in our possible grasp.We should even go as far as loving those who do not feel as though they need our Love, and , even those who consider themselves enemies. We should live in Love!!! Amen!!!

    What a BEAUTIFUL day today!!!

 I Love you!!!!!!! Mark
