What voice are you hearing?

Standard

I have been meditating a lot on this topic-
We are a triune being- we are a spirit, we possess a soul, and we live in a physical body.


…and a few days ago during my morning devotion it came up again…

So I decided to give birth to my thoughts and see what’s born…

Many have ‘awareness’ of this concept, based on bible truth-but few have revelation that we are a three part being and each part has a voice:

‘Conscience’ is the voice of our human spirit.
‘Reason’ is the voice of the soul, or mind.
‘Feeling’ is the voice of our body, or flesh.

Our Heavenly Father connects with us through our spirits, our inward witness… He doesn’t speak to our soul or our bodies… 

Nowhere in the Bible are we told God speaks to our body., or has a relationship with our mind.  

On the contrary, it’s our spirit man that is born again, but our mind has to be renewed daily.

Yet, the enemy ALWAYS gains access to us through our bodies (flesh) and our souls (mind)… in the ‘sense arena’- Satan appeals to what we ‘see’, ‘feel’, ‘hear’, ‘imagine’ or ‘think.’

And this is where it’s dangerous.

Satan is a liar, the father of all lies, in him there is no truth.   (John 8:44) He is a master of deception, and though there is nothing good about Satan, he is good at what he does:



Kill.  Steal.  Destroy.

That’s it.  That is his job description according to John 10:10.

He uses our senses to deceive us, so he can steal from us, destroy us, kill us.
Satan can not succeed however, unless we permit him to.  And God will permit what we permit.

Most of us get caught in the ‘feeling’ part… and get stuck there.

Many believe if they feel sick that they are sick.  Then they begin confessing the sickness, and their confession soon leads to possession… 

Before you are even aware- the thought that came by a wrong feeling was entertained, and settled into the heart, then confessed out of the mouth- bingo.  

Life is born from the wrong thought, that failed to get caught or run through the filter of Truth, God’s Word.

Follow the fruit to its root. Did it come to kill, steal or destroy, or, did it come to bring life, more abundantly
Folks- consider the root and inspect the fruit.


Many times you will actually hear people refer to a sickness as theirs…  In talking about it, without thinking, often they will say something like “my cancer has returned” thus, they are calling it theirs.  
Or, will say something like “I have the flu.” Taking ownership of it… agreeing with, permitting it rights to remain., assuming  there is no other way- if they have medical facts it exists, if they are feeling the symptoms, it must be so. 

“Death and life are in the power of the tongue.” (Proverbs 18:21).

Many believe that if they see, hear or feel it, ‘it’ must be true.

I’m not suggesting we live with our head in the clouds and ignore reality, symptoms, feelings or facts.  I’m stating that though something might exist and be a fact doesn’t mean it has the rights to remain and become a truth.

Friends, there’s a profound difference between ‘truth’ and ‘fact.’

If we give in to what we feel, or hear, or see- we are not living by faith. We are living by the worlds standards, not God’s.  We become a ploy for the enemy.

If we ‘feel’ something, we believe we ‘are’ what we feel. If we go by feelings alone, we become deceived and give in to these feelings.

God doesn’t call us to walk by our ‘feelings’. 

He created us with feelings, our emotions serve a purpose and it’s good to understand them, but as believers, we are not called to live by our feelings or get caught in the sense realm.

Rather, we are called to live by faith., by the Spirit. Not by sight.

Feelings are subject to change.

Thoughts and reasoning are subject to change.

Feelings and thoughts are based on facts- and facts are subject to change.

Truth (Jesus is Truth- and Jesus is The Word- therefore God’s Word is Truth.). So Truth, however, will never change, but has the power to change facts when acted upon by faith.

We are spirit, soul and body. Each has a voice.  

So… I’ll close with this thought provoking question:
Which voice is dominating you?

Homeless Center: it SHALL come to pass

Standard

When God gives you a vision… when God gives you a word… when God gives you a promise- then you can believe it shall come to pass. 
We founded and lead a 501 (C) 3 non profit ministry, ‘Helping The Homeless.’ 
God gave a clear vision plan, and step by step over the last 7 years it’s been unfolding into existence just as He said. 
 Every step has been laying the foundation, strong and sure, for its purpose. 
People are God most precious and valuable asset. 

Yet in our world we have people starving, hungry and thirsty, homeless. 
And people with the means to change this often walk right past them. 
We treat animals with better provisions of shelters and humane societies than our struggling neighbors, and this just is NOT OK. 
I’m not talking about applying a bandaid to a gapping wound- I am talking about a plan to resolve this problem for good.   I’m talking about a solution. 
A bible based plan, one that God Himself implemented and illustrated for us. 
We are by faith calling our 12 month Christ-Centered discipleship center, ‘CAMP RESTORATION’ into existence- a place where the hurting and broken people struggling with homelessness can come restore their lives and hearts freely, build a firm foundation of faith, learn job skills, anger management skills, money management skills, receive the love and support needed to get back in their feet and become independently dependent on Christ, then assist with finding transportation, employment and own housing during transition into being back in their own… 
I can see it.  Can you visualize it? I’ve been seeing it, ever since God gave me the vision in a dream.  And it SHALL come to pass!
It’s all about loving our neighbors and caring for others the way God said to do, changing the life of homelessness one person, one family at a time.

What is the Purpose of Wheels?

Standard

Remember the children’s song ūüé∂ “The wheels on the bus goes round and round, round and round, round and round…?”ūüé∂



Lately, I’ve been drawn to wheels… a mode of transportation.  
I began to wonder how long ago wheels were invented… I remember big wheels on stage coaches from studying history, but behind that?  

Hmmmmm.  

Go I googled it.  

According to Wikipedia,  the earliest wheels were made out of a solid piece of wood.


So this really got me thinking.

What is the purpose of the wheel?

I suggest its purpose is to assist us in getting from one place to another place where we are inclined to go- a means of transportation.

Smithsonian Magazine (June 17, 2009) suggests the original purpose of the wheel was not for transportation purposes, but rather was used as a tool for the potter. 

Fascinated, my mind goes to the scriptures.
God says He is the potter, we are the clay.  (Isaiah 64:6-12; Jeremiah 18). He used the ‘wheel’ to help get us to where we need to go.
God grew the tree that was used at Calvary.   (Genesis 2:9) 

This is where Jesus Christ died willingly for you and for me.  
Jesus carried the old wooden cross, heavy with the weight of all our sins.  (1 Corinthians 1:18; Philippians 2:8; 1 Peter 2:24-25)

Jesus is The Way… the ‘wooden wheel’ the cross, that carries us into Heaven- the ONLY way.

Still in thought, my mind meditating on various methods of transportation… the wheel, and it’s purpose. 
As believers and followers of Jesus Christ, we become ‘wheels’ to carry the gospel.
Once we are Holy Spirit filled, we are equiped with wheels … and commissioned to go.  
Whether we use our two feet, a bicycle, a motorcycle, a boat, a train, a horse, a plane or a car … we are called to go (not just near, but also far!)
The fire that ignites us IS the holy power of the Spirit… to carry the gospel INTO and across the world … 

What is the purpose of wheels and feet BUT to go? 

We aren’t called to be a parking lot or a garage type of church, where we go once a week and park.
Rather, the church is more about being a gas station where we go to fill up, so that we can go- we have an assignment!
The Holy Spirit highway in God’s church is connecting people of every nation and tongue to THE WAY.
Jesus the ONLY way, truth and life!
How can we sit still and pamper ourselves, stuffing our faces in a spiritual feast week after week in our fancy clothes, sitting parked in our fancy church buildings-when there are literally millions unreached people groups?  
People who are dying and slipping into an eternal hell, forever lost are in need of the gospel.

Reinhard Bonnke said it like this in his book Evangelism by Fire:  “The purpose of Pentecost is to get the wheels rolling for God in every church, thereby transporting the gospel across the face of the whole earth.”

Woe is me if I do not preach the gospel at all costs… 1 Corinthians 9:16 

Flash Flood of souls 

Standard


I was reading Evangelism by Fire  by Reinhard Bonnke, and literally found myself scorched by the fire of the words I was reading.

Before I could breathe my next breath I found myself exploding with thoughts and urgency to get back on the mission field again, while preparing to head into my office for another work day.

I find myself jealous of the time spent ¬†in the Word of God, hungry for more and more of Him… ¬† it’s difficult to pull myself away from my prayer room and the glory of God’s saturating presence, so that I can go to work…

The time spent in Word and study is sacred to me…

When I read this:

The gospel is not good news to people who do not hear it- an unpreached Gospel is no gospel at all.   (reinhard bonnke )
My soul reasonated. ¬† YES! ¬† ¬†How can they hear if we don’t go?

Nations urgently need the life-giving message of the cross now, not when it’s convenient.

‘If the Crucified One is to ‘see the labor of His soul, and be satisfied,’ as Isaiah 53:11 states, dare we think in smaller terms? Would He be satisfied with anything less?”

The whole earth is full of His glory (Isaiah 6:3) and the knowledge of His glory, power, and salvation will be spread across the world like a flashflood reaching every people-group and every nation, tribe and tongue

The great commission is about GOING.

‘The church is a lifeboat, not a pleasure boat.’ (Bonnke )

The ‘church’ that does not seek the lost is ‘lost’ itself. ¬†(Bonnke)

The word ‘seek’ doesn’t imply wait in your seat and hope someone comes.

It suggests action.

Means to go after, search for , sought out, find that which is lost.

If we got serious about seeking the lost like we would search for a missing $100 bill, we would find treasures stored up in heaven so rich we could not count its value.

I am hungry for revival …

I am at the precipice of a mighty move of God that will flood with souls …

I see with eyes of faith a vision of homeless people finding Christ, and eternal homes secured in Heaven.
I see also a flood of thirsty people coming for living water that we will give them that will satisfy their thirsty souls-

A revival of millions.

October 15, 2016, at 9:30am, The Holy Spirit gave me this vision which is noted in my digital journal. I’ve shared with a select few then, but He told me it’s time to share with the world, as a prophesy that shall come to pass.

Here is what He showed me:
I have this vision. I see it crystal clear.


There’s a gathering. It’s building and more and more are coming.


We are assembled together.


We are at a place that is wide open fields as far as the eye can see, flooded with people.



In the fields and in the back fields surrounding the parking lots and building. Tents are coming up. All together in unity.

“The Acts of the Apostles was written because the apostles acted!” (Smith Wigglesworth)

God is waiting on us to act.
He is waiting on us to catch the holy fire so He can spread through us.
Revival is NOW HERE.

It requires hearing by the Word of God.
It requires sent ones to go.

It requires senders to send.
It requires the body of Christ responding as a whole while each part DOES its part.
“There had never been a revival without the preaching of the Gospel.” (Reinhard Bonnke)
When a fire starts, there are coals, or sticks.  When they are spread apart, the power of the fire is weak, and quickly expires.

However, when the heat of each piece of coal, or each stick that unites comes together?
Oh. My. Goodness.  What a fire!
I want to be part of a church on fire!
I want to add my supply to a Holy fire that will not expire.
A Holy fire that will burn for God, will burn OFF impurities, and rescue souls from a hellious fire.

“Then He said to His disciples, ‘The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray the Lord of harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.” (Matthew 9:37-38)

Who wants to join us?

You can pray.

You can send.

You can go.
Iamjesusgal Ministries will be in Cincinnati Ohio in July, in Tanzania Africa in September, and in Nigeria Africa in November.

Oceans of Thoughts led to The Ark

Standard


While sitting on the shore of the Indian Ocean, in Tanzania Africa, my thoughts began to wander, mesmerized by the toss and turn of the waves…

Before long, I began to imagine what it might have been like for the people who perished in the day that the great flood came…

Advanced warning was provided, but no one took it seriously.

Mankind repeatedly were warned “Repent” ¬†but they continued in their wickedness.

God spoke to Noah, and in intricate, methodical detail, directed him step by step to build an ark. ¬†We call it today ‘Noah’s Ark.’

Provision was provided for whoever believed ¬†and acted upon¬†the way of escape… but only a handful were pure in heart.

A remnant remained.

No one knew what RAIN ¬†was then, for no rain ever fell upon the earth while Noah was following God’s instructions, building the Ark.

Eventually, the day came.  The Ark was loaded.  The door closed.  And the rain began.

Forty days and forty nights, the Ark, and all contained within, tossed and turned in the pouring rain.

This image is the one that my mind reflectively focused on, sitting on the beach shore in Tanzania… watching the old boats rock gently in the waves…

My mind visualizing the moment of realization for those who chose NOT to repent, who chose to remain in sin…

I imagined their cries for help that were deafened by the pitter patter of the rain, ¬†crashing waves against the side of the Ark, possibly the animal noises drowning the very cries of drowning souls…

And it fueled my passion even more to grab hands of those with one foot in the fire of hell back into the safety of God’s salvation, while there is still time…

Gods Word never changes.

God is our shelter and Jesus is our  ark of safety.

God never leaves us or forsakes us.

He doesn’t move.

Yet, He will permit us to drift away from Him, if we choose.

It’s so important to stay connected to Him, the Vine. ¬†To Him, the Word.

Our enemy, the devil roams around like a lion, seeking whom he may devour.

He’s subtle, and manipulative. He is patient. He is crafty, ¬†conniving.

He will plant a suggestive seed of doubt, and will try to lure you away from the Truth gradually… like a boat that lost its anchor…

The further away you drift, the harder it will be to return to safety.

Like a rowboat without a paddle leaving the shore… Drifting further and further away…the shore doesn’t leave.

It stays firm. But the drifted rowboat on the waves of water without an anchor leads you into trouble, and eventually to your demise.

Don’t let the devil deceive you.

Gods Word is STILL God talking to you, is STILL the answer for all of life’s troubles, is STILL the anchor for our faith.

Just because the world is full of sin and unholy lifestyles doesn’t mean we have to live the worlds way.

Noah’s life must have preached the most profound sermon series to everyone around him without even ¬†a word spoken, simply by him living a life of faith.

Noah’s obedience to what God commanded him to do, and his commitment and faithfulness, preached… but no one listened.

Noah, his wife, his three sons and their wives- made it safely through the flood.   They were hidden safely in the ark of safety, which got them through the storm to the other side.

My husband and I was blessed by our children for Christmas with tickets  to the Ark Encounter (full biblical scale replica of the Ark), and The Creation Museum, in Kentucky.

We will blend our 32nd wedding anniversary vacation with ministry in Ohio, and touring the Ark in Kentucky… I’m excited to see a glimpse of what the Ark might have looked like…but for now, my imagination based on scriptural account has painted a picture…

And it haunts me. ¬†The missionary in me…the Evangelist in me… FEELS for those who ridicule God, refusing to take God’s Word seriously, because of the eternal consequence of their choice…

The Spirit of God is leading me to throughout lifelines & safety rings, by going, and speaking the good news.

Today is, sadly, not much different than the days of Noah. ¬† Truth be told, ¬†we have started down the ¬†slippery slope of days worse than the days of Noah. ¬†We are in the last of the last days…

People are perishing, floating and drifting further away from safety, without an anchor of God’s Truth to hold them steady.

Heres a good word:  Get planted firmly in a local bible-teaching church.

Associate with other believers, especially ones more mature and solid in their faith to help mentor and guide you.

Watch your associations- some can be deadly.

If you desire a wholesome life, find a wholesome group of people to befriend.

It may lead to your future soulmate, and future family God has planned for you.

Put Gods Kingdom first.

Fall in love with Jesus, enjoy TODAY and serve Him, and joy will follow.

Don’t drift.

There’s safety onshore, in THE ark of safety… His Name is Jesus.
