Prayer is Very Powerful

Not everybody is in a position to help many different types of people in all situations. Prayer is powerful and you can pray for everybody in all different situations. For example you might grieve very strongly about people who are caught in the sex traffic, but are no way in a position to help. Most of us can’t help others physically, but we sure can pray for them.

When you hear of bad news you can always pray for the people or animal, or country’s concern. Sometimes God is happy with a quick short prayer and at other times He wants you to pray long and hard for months and sometimes for years over it. He places such a heavy burden on your heart that you need to pray for them. If you don’t have a burden pray for one and He will give you one or two or more.

One thing I love about prayer it is versatile. You are limited in your help physically but never spiritually. You can’t help the whole world, but you can pray for the whole world. Many people think their prayers are not powerful. They would be so surprise to find out, they are extremely powerful and God is waiting for them to help out, through their prayers. God’s way of answering prayers I find are usually different from what I expect. He always has a better plan. For example I got a burden for animals that are dumped and on T.V. that night the media reported about a female dog that was  pregnant and dumped and was then looked after. I find that happens over and over again. At first I thought it wasn’t related to my prayers, but it kept happening and then I finally said it was an answer to my prayers. And you will too be surprise how often that happens, once you start saying prayers for other people. And of course others know better than me how true this is.  

We must pray all the time, every chance we can get. And offer up our days for people and different things that God has placed on our heart.

James 5:16. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.

Don’t mistake a righteous person to be somebody who doesn’t fail God from time to time, but rather somebody who seeks to please God with all their heart.

Mark 11:24. “Whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.

 

 

Having Positive Thoughts

Philippians 4:8.  Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honourable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise.

There is so much negative thinking these days. During terrible hard times it is hard to keep your mind off the problem. We can think about it so much so that the thoughts just go round and round until we think we are going insane. Doing what is right and healthy always seems more difficult than to do what is not right and healthy.

Since more and more negative things keep happening in this world, the verse above is even more needed to be obeyed. It is the way Jesus would have done things. And there is plenty of good things going on around us, if we are willing to stay focus on them. If we obey we would be sure to get the peace only Jesus can give, that the world cannot give. He would give us this peace gladly. The peace helps you to be victorious in your situation. You would be able to think more clearly and be able to hear God’s voice more clearly in each and every situation, you find yourself in. It takes a lot of practice for most of us, but it is worth it. 

Putting our Faith and Trust in the Lord

For many of us being pessimistic about our trials is the norm. We have to watch out for that. If we are not careful we can forget all the promises of God when we let fear take over our lives. We are told that Jesus has already won the victory and all we have to do is believe and obey. Then God will turn things around for us for His Glory sake. His Glory is always based on love. And we all want to be truly loved especially for ever. We have to see God as our loving Father. Head knowledge won’t save us in a crisis. We have to really believe God is love and that He is all Wisdom. If we step out in faith and trust we will see God’s promises fulfilled. Most of us rather put our trust in what we see. What we see is only temporary. What is eternal is what we can’t see. God is more real than what we are. Trusting God is proof of our love for Him is real. We get tested a lot so that we will grow in all virtues, such as faith and trust. If we always live sheltered lives we will never grow and become strong in the Lord.

Deuteronomy 20:3-4. Do not fear or panic or be in dread of them, for the Lord your God is He who goes with you to fight for you against your enemies, to give you the victory.

Psalm 118:14. The Lord is my strength and my song; He has given me victory.

Holy Communion

What is Holy Communion? There are different beliefs about it. Some Churches believe what Jesus said about it is just symbolic. Others Churches believe what He said about it, He meant it as He said it. Just an example of what I am trying to say, look at John 6:51 as an example. ‘I am the living bread which comes down from heaven: if anyone eats this bread, he will live for ever; and the bread which I shall give is for the life of the world is my flesh.’

Some Church leaders keep away from verses that contradict their denominational beliefs so that the congregation don’t get to hear of these verses unless they read verses like John 6: 51 for themselves. There are so many verses that back up what Jesus said as what He says He means. For example 1 Cor. 11:27… Whoever, therefore, eats the bread or drinks the cup unworthy will be guilty of profaning the body and blood of the Lord.

Those who don’t believe the bread and the wine turned into the body and blood of Christ is for today, please read John 6:22 onwards. I am sure it will convince you the truth of Jesus’s words to be exactly what He meant it to be, if you ask the Holy Spirit to enlighten you.

Another thing some churches don’t practise Holy Communion at all, while others practise it once a month some once a week and very few every day. I believe in doing it every day. Not only does it please God (God has told me to do it every day), but it strengthens you to tackle your trials throughout the day. I know most of us are being heavily attack by the devil, so think about it. I am sure you won’t regret doing it every day and you will see what I mean by strengthening you, if you do it with faith.

Doing Holy Communion at Home

For His blood I use raspberry cordial because it is the most convenient thing I have. I remember the first time I did Communion at home, I raised the bread up to be consecrated to be the body of Jesus without any trouble, but when I raised up the cordial, I said to God I won’t consecrated to be your blood, because it is too unworthy, meaning not wine like Jesus used. The moment I said that I felt a very strong and really sad presence, because He wanted me to. So from then onwards I used cordial because I know God will accept it. I often call Jesus God, since He is God the second person, so I hope I am not confusing anybody.

Just because your Church doesn’t celebrate Communion every day, doesn’t mean you should be without. You can do it anyway you feel God’s Spirit leading you. Any prayer you feel is urgent to say, say it in Communion. The way I do it just to give you an idea is I start with a reading a Psalm that I randomly open up to, believing God has chosen it for me. Then I read about three pages of short Bible promises and then some more prayers, mostly from the Crusade of Prayer book. Just before consecrating time I read out John 6:53-58

Jesus said. ‘I tell you most solemnly if you do not eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you will not have life in you. Anyone who eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life and I shall raise him up on the last day. For my flesh is real food and my blood is real drink. He who eats my flesh and drinks my blood lives in me and I live in him. As I am sent by the living Father, so whoever eats me will draw life from me. This is the bread come down from heaven not like the bread our ancestors ate. They are dead, but anyone who eats this bread will live for ever.

And then some more prayers after I have eaten and drunk His Blood.

Of course you can do your own Communion anyway you like. As long as you are sincere about it. God will bless it.

Listening to God’s Voice

I haven’t written for quite some time now. God has been very patient with me, teaching me lessons like the difference between head knowledge and heart knowledge. Heart knowledge pleases God a great deal more, He responds to it, not so much with head knowledge. It has been a rough journey for me and is still an ongoing one, which I think most people are finding their journey just as hard as well. My biggest lesson is God’s forgiveness is extraordinary. It takes me by surprise when I see after torturing myself and God in not believing I am forgiven to see just how much He does.

I have a CD that teaches you how to hear God’s voice. The CD is called ‘The hearing God experience’ by Mark Virkler. It is one of the best teachings I have heard on hearing God I have ever heard. But there are plenty different CD’s out there if you went searching for it. It is so simple. I have been doing it for about nine months now. He suggest that you should have other people check it from time to time to make sure it is God really talking to you. I have made a serious mistake thinking the Devils words was from God and it got me into a lot of trouble. But when it is from God it is so encouraging and strengthening. I write it down, I find it is easier for me to do it that way.

I am still learning about humility, it is one virtue God wants me to concentrate on the most. We all have weaknesses and to see His patience first hand makes a big difference to your life. I have had beautiful visitations from Jesus that I loved so much, but also wonderful to be able to ask God a question and get an answer, it is real comforting. God is talking to us all the time, it is a matter of learning how to listen to Him.  Most of us haven’t be taught how. It is not so much a voice but a thought.

 

Important Warning

I know you have heard the end of the world is near many times and it hasn’t happened yet. But now you can see for yourself the planet Nibiru and at least nine other planets coming so close to the Sun, that there was a report that the moon is now wobbling in its path. It has been prophesied that the earth will wobble so much so it will be like a drunkard. The thing is we need not be scared of the future disasters that is coming, if we truly give up our lives to God and repent of all our sins and put our whole trust in our Saviour Jesus Christ. He is the only way. Many Christians have lived with one foot in the world and the other with Christ. That won’t do. If this is what you are doing you won’t be ready when Jesus lifts His Brides (true and faithful Christians) to the clouds and then takes them to the Wedding Feast in Heaven. Which is talked about in the book of Revelations in the Bible. Some Christians are so worldly you wouldn’t call them Christians because they are not faithful at all to Christ teachings, even twisting them to mean something else. Those who are left behind can still hope for another rapture that God will once again take the second lot because of their true repentance of not being ready the first time around. So there is a great hope that we can be excused of much of the disaster that is coming. (The Great Tribulation as it is called in the Bible).

A person will rise to power that the Book of Revelation in the back of the Bible calls the anti-christ. There will be a third world war and he is going to stop it (he started it secretly in the first place so he could stop it to win the trust of the people who will be so desperate they will follow anybody and doing anything for peace.) He will make everyone he can to inset a micro-chip in your hand or forehead. You won’t in the end be able to buy or sell without it according to the Bible and modern day prophets. This miro-chip in the Bible is referred as the Mark of the Beast, so don’t take it whatever happens don’t take it. He is not going to tell you he wants to use it to control you. It will change your DNA. If you do take it don’t think you will be able to repent after it. Because they will block God from your mind. This might sound convenient at first, but it will take away your whole freedom forever and you will never ever be going to Heaven, once you volunteer to take it.

Jesus promises those who will put their trust in Him will see miracles like never before and things like food and water appearing and multiplying will be happening. Jesus will increase your faith if you let Him. Your faith will be tested like never before too.

Mary the mother of Jesus has appeared so often telling us all, Protestants and Catholics alike to say the Rosary. The church didn’t make it up there are fifteen promises if we say it devoutly and one of the promises is, we will never perish. So important for those days to say it. I had a vision of a city totally burnout and only one sky scrapper standing it was all charcoal like the rest of the city. There was a faint light amongst the ruins. A survivor who was saying the Rosary. In the sky there was a solid round object with a small hole in the middle of it. It represented God. The solid part was His Justice and the hole was His Mercy which was gushing out as the result of the person saying the Rosary. The person’s faith was weak, but Mary’s faith is strong and her life so pleasing to God that what makes her intercession so powerful. So even though the prayer was weak, in that the person’s faith wasn’t that strong, Mary is powerful. So yes it is going to be extremely hard for those left behind, but there is still hope. You still can be converted and saved if you don’t volunteer to have the Mark of the Beast.

 

Joyful Thoughts

is(16)We have to be more and more alert as the time of Our Lord draws near. So many Christians are being attack through witchcraft. So it is very important to keep our thoughts on how loving a God we serve and not always dwelling on our problems.

Once I was so concern about my problems, God brought my attention that God wanted to be praised. At the time I was too busy rebuking the enemy. I remember many years ago I had a dream. On the left side was Satan’s army, tanks, missiles etc. and on the right was God’s army. We were all joyful and praising God. That is our strength being joyful in the Lord and praising Him. When we do that all the time our intercessory prayers are even more powerful. We are pleasing God and getting to know Him. You can’t be joyful if you are not confident in God’s love and protection for you. A couple ways to become joyful is to look at God in all his mercy and love for you. And remembering all the good things and the protection He has given to you in the past.

Philippians 4:8. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honourable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise.

There is a lot of training in this and I am still very much a beginner myself. But I am getting better at it and the relief now that I have in realising even to a greater extent of God’s forgiveness and how He does come to our rescue all the time, if we humble ourselves.
