“In the Name of Love”

To those who are seated in heavenly places in Christ, and blessed with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places, I send my greetings in the love of the Father and the blessed peace that passes all understanding that assures us that we are in Him.

I do not cease to remember you in my prayers, that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowing of Him.

May the eyes of your hearts be enlightened, that you may know the hope to which he has called you and the riches of his glorious inheritance that await and are available to you that place your trust in Him.

May you experience the immeasurable greatness of his power as is toward those “who believe”.
I believe God at His promises to me and to those of you who can stand and likewise declare “I believe”. Believing God at His word and who he says that I am, may we truly and fully receive and be the express image of His great love.

Such are not of the world, just as Jesus is not of the world. But rather have come “into” this world. Being set apart in the truth; for His Word is truth. As we are sent into the world, may we consecrate ourselves, to such, realizing and actualizing the message of the Cross that we be set apart in truth.

May all be one, just as the Father and Jesus are one. There we are centered and seated in Christ, and He in us so that so that the world may believe that Jesus came and that we may fully partake in the fullness that He is.

The glory that He was given of the Father is what Jesus extends to His body the church, who have placed their full belief and trust in Him, that we may be one even as Jesus and the Father are one.

Jesus’ very words declare “I in them and you in me, that they may become perfectly one, so that the world may know that you sent me and loved them even as you loved me.” (John 17:23 ESV)

The Father desires that they, who have given and surrendered their hearts and lives to Jesus, may be with Him where He is, to see His glory that the Father has given Him because He was loved of the Father before the foundation of the world.

The world does not know the Father because they have not received His Son. He that has the Son, has the Father and have life eternal and those that have not the Son have not life. Jesus knows the ones that are His; the ones who have made Jesus their own, know Him and seek to know Him in fullness and therefore know the Father.

Jesus has made known His Name, and will continue to make it known, that the love wherewith the Father has loved Him may be in fullness with those that enter into Him, and His love made known and expressed in and through their lives.”

May the world know us by our love and this is my prayer this morning. There is no other name under heaven by which man can be delivered and saved from the sinful nature which is rooted in self which we all are born naturally into this world with through the water birth. We must be born of His Spirit from above which is His Word, the Word of Truth. Jesus is the living Word. Only in the name of Jesus does this come. At the Name of Jesus, all is to be surrendered to him and for Him, for “by Him” are all things held together. His name matters.

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life”. (John 3:16 ESV)

“For the Joy of Loving”

What motivates you in life? What propels you forward into your day, to the extent that just about nothing can deter you from fulfilling the purpose for which you are here? You do know the very reason for which you are alive right now for such a time as this, don’t you?

If not, then perhaps my visit with you here this morning on this page can help stir you up into a quest similar to what I find myself on these days.

So if there is be any encouraging word or act of loving service that I could offer you this morning let it be the following; that in Christ, any comfort from love, any participation in the Spirit, any affection and sympathy, is where and how we be made complete.

Now mind you, my joy finds it’s source resting in being of the same mind that Jesus walked in. Let us look to Him. Without him you and I can do nothing, in and of ourselves. He is, after all “the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God.”
(Hebrews 12:2b ESV)

As He is, so we are to be in this world. Having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind; do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others. Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus.

Jesus, who though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped. In a human body He had His battles with the mind. He was tempted as you and I. But He stayed the course with what He saw His Father doing and He spoke what the Father was saying. Man is to not live by bread alone but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God. Mind yourself with the Living Manna; the very words of the living God will sustain and direct you in all of your ways. Why do we think we should so walk any differently? You and I are not here to be found doing what is right in our own eyes. That is what gets us in so much trouble in this life.

But Jesus emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, was born in the likeness of men. And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.

May you and I do likewise and follow in his example. Be a follower of Christ. Allow His reign over your life. The walk of a follower of Jesus is not beyond your grasp or means. You have a Comforter and Teacher in his Holy Spirit. Have you surrendered and yielded the reigns of your heart unto His loving care and direction? If not I urge you to do so today. Your life does not need to be spinning and spiraling out of control. It is not meant to be haphazard but rather distinctly ordered and directed by His Word.

Jesus, being found in human form, went to the Cross for you and I and won the victory for us. He secured all of Heaven for you and I to meet us here on earth. “On Earth as it is in Heaven” is His design. Jesus humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth to the glory of God the Father.

So what do you and I need to need to ascertain in life to assure ourselves of this victory? It is very simple.

“The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart” that is, the word of faith that we proclaim; because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved. For the Scripture says, “Everyone who believes in him will not be put to shame.” (Romans 10:8-11 ESV)

I “believe God” and so I am who He says that I am and I choose to keep walking that out. The same holds true for you. But you must act upon and walk out what the Word of God already declares is true for you. I love to do the will of Him who sent and sends me and the Joy of being “in Him” is my strength. It is for the mere extravagant joy of his presence that I persevere and run this race. So are you my friend willing to follow in the same example?

The Reason for Living and the Power of the Cross

A flower comes forth in beauty and color and in a short time fades, withers and returns to the earth. Here today and gone tomorrow. A flower depicting a picture of life; can seem to pass by so quickly. So what is value in life? Why it’s potential is priceless, yet how many of us live as “believing” such?

I believe. I believe in loving life. I believe in living in order “to love”, to the fullest extent possible. There is only one purpose for which I live, move and have my being, one thing that drives me, lights my passion, and sets me on fire for life and motivates the very reason with purpose for which I walk out life here on this earth right now. That being, the message “of the Cross”.

That is to reveal to every person that crosses my path in life, the very source of life.

It is to make known the very truth that to not be “fully connected” with “that very source” in whose image we are all created, we “have not” the means to “make it” in life. I make no apology for my message or the intensity in which it is delivered.

The message is not about me. It is the message of the cross. It means everything to me and I will in a heartbeat lay down my life for the One who gave up His so that I could fully live. I will sacrifice what my very self may want or desire in life, in order to bring “that message” home to you and anyone else my life crosses path with, to where the “rubber meets the road” in life.

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.” (Romans 1:16 ESV) This is the “dunamis” or dynamite power that fuels life’s very force of being sustained.

Without it, you can “do nothing” of eternal significance and you will die “without achieving” the purpose or destiny for which God created you.

Plain and simple, without Jesus’ reign in your heart and life you are running aimlessly, empty and without purpose. You are left unfulfilled and are settling for less than the ultimate that can be all yours.

I am not stretching the truth one bit, I’m simply reminding you of what already resides within; an awareness of an eternal kingdom that is your inheritance . You already are born to be fully a son or daughter of God. You just perhaps don’t know it and your mind perhaps has been blinded or obscured from seeing and recognizing who you are.

This is why Jesus gave His very life and all on the cross for you and I. So that we might fully live this out this life in rich abundance and to go beyond this physical life continuing in what begins here and to carry it onto eternity onto an everlasting destiny that leaves a legacy for a perpetual kingdom that knows no end.

“For the word of the Cross is folly to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. For it is written,
“I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and the discernment of the discerning I will thwart.” (1 Corinthians 1:18-19 ESV)

Who is truly wise and all knowing? Who has the answers for this life?

Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? For since, in the wisdom of God, the world did not know God through human wisdom or understanding, it pleased God through the foolishness of what we preach to save those who believe. So you demand signs or seek wisdom?

However we preach Christ crucified, a stumbling block to some, but to those who are called, (which “are all”, of every tribe, tongue and nation), Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God.

For the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men. For consider your calling. You may regard yourselves wise according to worldly standards, however truly powerful, “within your own means”, you are not. To be “in Christ” and being found in Him is your only hope that is and that can be lasting.

God chose what is foolish in the world to shame the wise; God chose what is weak in the world to shame the strong; a testimony I bring to this world that that is clear and plain to see. I seek to live a very transparent life and be as real as it gets. A very imperfect being, becoming perfected in and by only the love of the Father’s heart through the love of Jesus Christ being made real in life.

God chose what is low and despised in the world, even things that are not, to bring to nothing things that are, so that no human being might boast in the presence of God.

May the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, give you a spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of Him, which is making real the goodness of God, for which reason I live.

A Sacrificial Surrender to Love

When God speaks of His desire for us to be perfected in love, what does this say unto you? I know that “this” is the highest utmost desire of my heart. In human flesh I would say that to “totally” attain this, is not to be achieved in a lifetime. To my knowledge it never has, however there are examples that have been exceptional experiences of extravagant love.

“Love never ends. As for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when the perfect comes, the partial will pass away.” (1 Corinthians 13:8-10 ESV)

Until Jesus physically returns again for His bride we will merely see though this looking glass darkly. Our perception is still filtered though a human vessel. Yet I aspire to become utterly fearless in pursuit of the level of love that is the Father’s heart; to make it totally consuming all that I am, overtaking any and every part of life’s material expression and totally known is my reason for being. It is coming to the point where I must lay everything down for it to totally consume and swallow up my entire essence. This drives my human thinking mind nearly insane in certain moments. It makes my flesh hurt so intensely that I back off because I haven’t been able to bear such yet for very long at a constant. Yet I keep stepping back out onto those waters in faith. I believe God! I truly do and that is amazing!

Is this fearless faith pressing through the crushing towards the matchless; unstoppable, unshakable, unmovable and ever abounding in nature? I wonder sometimes as it feels like I am about to spontaneously combust. I have made this my all-out quest to understand the dimensions of the love of Christ and to communicate it to every soul who is hungry and thirsty enough to give up everything and anything for the presence of God to take front and center precedence.

“There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love.” (1 John 4:18 ESV)

“Perfect” means consummate, complete, total, lacking nothing, fulfilled. “Love” means “Agape Love”. The Love that the Bible speaks of is the Love which God is and demonstrates.

Love, which is patient, kind, does not envy or boast, is not proud or rude, is not self-seeking or easily angered, and keeps no record of wrongs. This consummate Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres and never fails. (1 Cor 13:4-8) Perfect Love never changes (Malachi 3:6) and does not lie (1 Samuel 15:29, Titus 1:2).

I have searched with a contrite heart what truly discerning the body and blood of Jesus that was broken and poured out for me actually entails as I come to the communion table to partake in remembrance. This is so paramount to understand. It literally changes the way I walk out living.

“Each one must examine himself before he eats of the bread and drinks of the cup. For anyone who eats and drinks without recognizing the body eats and drinks judgment on himself. That is why many among you are weak and sick, and a number of you have fallen asleep.” (1 Corinthians 11:29)
But whenever anyone turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away.

I sense that when one truly discerns the body and blood of the Lord, a veil comes off from the heart and there is an “rendering of a veil that opens the conduit for extravagant love to flow in like a mighty gushing fountain. It happened to me, is all I can say about that.

Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom and is this not the glory of the New Covenant?
“For I would not, brothers, that you should be ignorant of this mystery, of the veiling of the heart as stated in Romans 11:25-27.

God has always kept a remnant that knows this. In these last days is He indeed not raising up a peculiar people that are so set apart in their hearts in a holy awareness and awe of who He is, who will become a mighty army to take back the land. I know that I am peculiar in a sense and some don’t know how to receive that and that is okay because I lost my reputation some time ago and people’s opinions no longer matter to me. I seem to be losing any desire to be affirmed by anyone or anything.

How Jesus feels is all that really matters. I just desire everyone begin to see Him with an unveiled heart. That is why I live to love. I can’t help to be any other way. Until you learn to love to live, you are not truly fully living at all in my estimation and are merely accepting less than God’s very best for you. I pray you can at least in part hear my heart in what I sensed needed to be expressed right now, here today.

“For what do you Wait?”

Have you felt as though your life has stopped or been held up in some way for a period of time? Perhaps you’ve been through a dry period where life has become a desert or wilderness? With God, nothing in the way of our circumstances are permanent or fixed. Life is intended to be fluid and there is to be movement. There is preparation and there is purpose to be fulfilled in each and every one of us. So what God allows to come into our lives many times is to strengthen and equip us to be who God intended for us to be. In the point of our greatest test through our weakest points and moments many times is when His strength is perfected.For what do you wait?

“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will hear you. You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart. I will be found by you, declares the Lord, and I will restore your fortunes and gather you from all the nations and all the places where I have driven you, declares the Lord, and I will bring you back to the place from which I sent you into exile.” (Jeremiah 29:11-14 ESV)

Just as the 70 years of exile for Israel came to an end, so does your period of captivity and exile that has sidelined you, reach an end. Your 70 years are ending and your deliverance is at end. No longer in the future, but right now is your moment of opportunity to believe God for what may seem inconceivable to you or impossible. “And without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him.” (Hebrews 11:6 ESV)

God has plans that involve a hope and future for you without exception. So call upon Him now and believe. He will hear you right now from exactly where you are at. Jesus already did all the work for you at the Cross. all you have to do is agree with God and say “yes” to his saving grace. Just say “yes”. You have been found and He is ready to restore unto you the years that have robbed you of your joy and well being.
Where your time of captivity has driven you, it is time to come out of seclusion. Your time of hiding or being hidden is over. God is ready to bring you back and fully restore what the locust has consumed over time and circumstance.

This is addressing someone today that is reading this. Today is your day of salvation. However you must respond. You don’t have become something more first or you don’t have to wait for something to change. He who the Son sets free is free indeed. “For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery.” (Galatians 5:1) If any man be in Christ He is a new creation. Old things are passed away and all becomes new. 2 Corinthians 5 :17) So will you just say “yes” to God right now?

See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are. (1 John 3:1)

Where charity and love, there is God. There Christ joins us together with Him. Let us be found in there. Let us draw near and love the living God in full assurance of faith.

At the same time, therefore, when we are gathered as one with Christ,let us not be divided in mind. In the center, in the name of Jesus may all darkness and resistance flee.

Behold in open face the glory or goodness of the Lord; from glory unto glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.

The joy that is immense and good, is before you and awaits your acceptance.
“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed. (Luke 4:18)
Jesus is here and present to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound. Today is your opportunity.

At the Foot of the Cross

Today, between Good Friday and Resurrection Day, I stand paused at the foot of the cross. I’ve just been through one of the most challenging weeks of my life, highlighted by what years of chronic illness that has been cyclical has brought to a head. Pain levels and associating discomfort became extreme and nearly feeling unbearable. This had a way of bringing me to the place to which I had to come. This being the ending of my identifying with certain elements within me that I deemed so important as being a part of me. I found myself suddenly incapable of doing “my things” These “things” that I have relied upon; these abilities and talents within my realm of experience, expressions of talents that I am good at bringing forth.

Most of my life I have longed to receive affirmation, appreciation, and recognition from others based upon what I consider necessary to be their desire and willingness to invest in time with me “based upon” what I have to offer to to them from “what I can do”. “What I do” does not really define “who I am”. So why have I placed so much emphasis on or value in what I am best at doing?

It is like I have been telling myself that if I don’t measure up to a certain level of performance in what I do best, then I have little to no value to offer and if that is true then others will not want to accept me or perhaps they won’t even be able to see me at all. I might as well be as “the invisble man” whose only purpose in life is to watch all the other people around me actively participating in the qualities of enjoying life together as couples or groups.

Wherein they seem to be having a full and rich life surrounded by expressions that appear to illustrate so much love, joy and fun “being had together” that apparently “I don’t get to have” in my life right now. I feel left out and deprived and not knowing how to “fix that”. Because I find myself single, feeling alone and isolated and it seems like I don’t fit into anyone else’s life “enough” to where they really want to invest in time with me to the extent that I can begin feel a great big hole in my heart that cries to be filled up with some measure of satisfaction that “just might” bring a sense of fulfillment to me.

Can any particular one person or handful of people even truly begin to fulfill what “in my mind’s eye” what the heart longs for? Are such expectations realistic? That is a pretty big “heavy” to drop on people isn’t it? Why would I even expect such from them? This illustrated to me that something was missing here from this picture or equation.

Do you or I know what may be missing here? I come to the conclusion that it is a
a misunderstanding of love. Is our perception of what qualifies love for you or I perhaps being measured primarily from a human standpoint? So what other standpoint would I seek to reference it from, you may be asking? Where does love stem from or originate? Let’s take a look at this.

“See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are. The reason why the world does not know us is that it did not know him. (1 John 3:1) Children exhibit from what their parents pour into them. Where or to the extent that the child does or does not experience the bond of love with the parent, their concept of what love is to be experienced as is thereby established. (Why we can’t know and love one another fully?)

Beloved, let us love one another, for love is “from God”, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God. Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love. In this the love of God was made manifest among us, that God sent his only Son into the world, so that we might live “through him”. In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No one has ever seen God; if we love one another, God abides in us and his love is perfected in us. (1 John 4:7-12)

Love originated with God and is “of Him”. Let us look at John 3. (Take a moment to read it)
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” He so very much loved you and I, that He gave His very best; His Son as a living sacrifice to demonstrate and illustrate what love truly is; through living it and then laying it down.

God did so in order that we may not be without the experience of His love in this life and that we could experience it for eternity, even beyond this life.

When Adam, through which separation from God was first experienced and came; lost sight of the identity that God had placed within the heart and in so doing thought he knew better than God and that there was perhaps more to be discovered than what he already had in God. He questioned whether that which “was enough” was truly enough? So he was tempted to question as to what God had already established.

So he went seeking beyond the Tree of Life and went to where God had warned him to not go; to the tree of knowing of good and evil. Then he was introduced to what ultimately divided man. The goodness of God was “no longer enough” so he invited into his heart the desire to know of “the opposite” of the goodness of God (glory). He gave up the glory of God’s presence to “gain’ the knowing of the “absence” of God’s Presence.

The great divide of humanity was born at that moment of action; when Adam in His mind questioned the goodness of God. In that process, he determined that he needed to justify being right; “the need to be right”.

His wife Eve was the one who actually took this step first and then gave to her husband. “However” the man is to be the protector and vanguard fully of the heart of his wife in God’s order. He is to so cherish her that nothing would ever stand in the way of what God has joined together in their marriage to be severed; between each other and between their relationship with God. He should have stopped Eve right in the moment where she offered him the fruit and brought the two of them before God and restored relationship and there would have been no division to continue in.

In all of humanity that followed Adam, death naturally comes because man naturally separates himself from God’s love and does not even realize it until he realizes that his heart feels empty or seems to be “missing something vital”. In Christ Jesus all are made alive. He is the restorer of this breach. Jesus came and sacrificed His very all to restore that great divide of humanity.

God says that no man can come to Him for the restoration of such love which ends all separation except through coming into relationship with His son Jesus. There love is restored. Without initiating a love relationship with Jesus, we remain naturally devoid of knowing the (ginosko), the most intimate of expression of love; which is the extent to which God loves you and I.

Husband and wife are designed of God to have this be the eternal binder to one another that nothing can sever. When a man and a woman enter into this covenant with each other and God, it is eternal and therefore forever until the flesh enveloped temple of God’s Holy Spirit departs the earth realm. Divorce should never occur and this is why. It is always “the need to be right” and thinking that something has been witheld from us in life that God’s love cannot fulfill; between Him and you or I, or between each other. It is this manner of love that is the binder and sustaining and preserver of loving life relationship. We are destined to live such a life out fully and to experience it in unlimited abundance.

For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn or judge and find fault with the world, but in order that the world might be saved (restored in love)through him.(Jesus)
Whoever believes in him is not condemned however whosoever does not believe is condemned already, because they condemn themselves by not believing in the name of the only Son of God, which is to refuse the offer of God’s love by thinking something keeps them from being good enough or worthy or thinking there is some thing they have to do first in order to measure up to a standard. There is no standard as there was under the old covenant before Jesus came. Jesus is the standard bearer. He is the way, the truth and the life. There is no other way to have love restored and to thus know what the love that comes from God truly is.

Jesus came, Jesus died, Jesus was risen victorious over all that could or would ever seek to separate us from the love of God. Jesus is! By Him all things are held together (consist).

“Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. (John 3:5) That simply put; we are born naturally in water out of our mother’s womb and brought into this world. Then each of us must individually make the choice to be reunited in the bonding of God’s love through His son Jesus into intimate love relationship by His Spirit which closes the great divide that naturally veils the heart from receiving the fullness of God’s love, realized and actualized. You already have all of Jesus and all that He represents inside of you. This cannot however come into the embracing of the fullness of love until You say yes and invite this to come into newness and fullness of full abundance of loving life, by inviting Jesus to be the very center, focus and reason for being. Without Him you can do nothing. Without Him you are left with a huge something missing in your heart and life.

Just say yes to Him if you truly desire to experience your life being full to the brim of love and joy beyond what you can ever imagine.

“But I do not account my life of any value nor as precious to myself, if only I may finish my course and the ministry that I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of the grace of God.” (Acts 20:24)

Have you come to the cross? Have you laid down the burden of life?
Perhaps you need to sit at the foot of the cross for a while until you can say yes.

Then there are those times when need to revisit the foot of the cross, because being in love and in communion with God is not merely visited. It is our identity in which we live and move and have our being.

Advantage in the Name

I welcome you once again fellow readers. Here I sit in the early morning hours pondering what is playing out in this body of mine. Mainly confined to my home and office space and I have risen after but three hours of sleep. The pain in my spinal column is getting to be quite excruciating and debilitating. It keeps me mostly home bound except for Church on Sunday morning and an appointment or two of destiny during the week in which someone assists and drives to and back home again. I now struggle to walk with the assistance of a cane. That is as far down as I am going. I’m still able to get to my feet and move. Sure it takes me a while and a lot of work, however I am still standing and moving. Every day I force myself to take another step beyond my comfort zone.

I get a few hours here and there of respite and relief from from high levels of pain in my back, legs and arms and these limbs grow weaker by the day. No pain killers will even begin to touch this. No medications really work either. Whereas I would be otherwise mainly confined to bed, I am able to be up at my desk part time through the use of a product that I believe God made available to me which comes in two forms which I take in pill form and the other in beverage. These have produced such amazing results not only in myself but in the lives of many others with issues similar to mine. This is so amazing and phenomenal that I have become a distributor of this product and have been telling everyone one I know about it. I have free samples to share which I have been offering, however few seem to take my testimony seriously enough yet to say yes to trying the products. This amazes me as I used to be very active and moved with a rapid gait until this illness gradually has overtaken my body to the extent which doctors can’t find evidence enough to diagnose me apparently. I have been a medical mystery. Consistent, continuing prayer please!

I’ve shared countless testimonies of many others who use these same products with amazing and similar results to that which I experience. I think perhaps that I am just seen as another guy trying to sell yet another product among many the marketing of others. This is not just some average product. It has phenomenal results. So I have the product available and the bodily testimony with a passion to help others. Yes, I love helping people whether compensated or not. If the illness isn’t enough trouble, my medical predicament placed my bank account into overdraft a week ago which is beyond anything I can do anything about for at least another week. So not much “circumstantially” moving yet in my life however “I” am still moving and will not stop and I refuse to give up. I fight to keep my life moving forward. Okay now that I’ve laid out the statistics of what I can physically see and feel, let us move into what God seems to be saying in the midst of it all and my testimonial to His grace in the midst of the storm.

I continue to declare and pray the promises over my body that God has given me from His Word and I do so without ceasing. He is my hiding place, always filling my heart with songs of deliverance and whenever I am afraid I will trust in Him fully and declare that His strength carries me in the midst of great weakness that seeks to hold me down.
Because Jesus came and what He gave and sacrificed on the cross for me, I fully declare and proclaim that by the wounds He bore for my sake and that by those stripes I am already fully healed and made whole. (Isaiah 53). My body is just not cooperating yet.

Jesus was the Word at the beginning, one with God, the Lord Most High, hidden glory, in creation, now revealed in Him our Christ; the name above all names, most beautiful. (Genesis 1 and John 1 ESV). He didn’t want heaven without us, He brought heaven down to us. My sin was great yet His love was greater so what could separate us now? What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things? Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword? As it is written in Romans 8:36, “For your sake we are being killed all the day long; we are regarded as sheep to be slaughtered.”
No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Death could not hold Him as He as He laid down his all for you and I. This rent the veil in two; the veil that once separated us from God. This silenced the sting and pain of sin and grave. The sting of your and my pain is hereby silenced in Jesus name!
The heavens are roaring with the praises of His glory as He risen to life with healing in His wings. You and I are raised in His likeness from the grip of sickness, infirmity, weakness,poverty, affliction, death, hell and the grave.
For You and I are raised to life again, because Jesus has no rival or equal and now and forever He reigns. The kingdom is His, the glory is His, and in Him, I am fully His; bought and paid for by and through His blood that was poured out and body that was broken in the ultimate of sacrifice. Therefore I cannot remain broken, shaken or scattered because He is the Great Shepherd; the bishop and keeper of my soul; yes, body, soul and spirit are one in Him.

“For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him.

And he is before all things, and in him are all things are held together in His body, which is the church, which consists of you and I and all He died for. He is the beginning; the Alpha, the Omega; the ending, the First and the Last, who is alive forever more.

There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things?

In all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.

I am already victorious amidst a battle that rages in this body of mine. The war over my soul is already won in Jesus. At times it may not look like it and it may not always feel at times that it is so however I choose to live solely by the Word of God and all I have to do is “walk this out” by not buying into anything that is outside of the Word of God.

“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor. (Luke 4:18,19) Jesus is in me and I am “in Him so this is what I choose to live and walk out. Jesus IS our prize; not a predictable future. Jesus being our prize makes our future already secure. My future is secure and my reason for being here, ever so clear! Amen? Most certainly and YES to every promise!

We can say we are free, and we are in Jesus, but do we live like it? Will we choose to start living like it? Freedom is the gift of Christ! It is the only gift that will release my and your future “when” we no longer seek to control and drive that future.

God gave me a dream. He has for me plans, for a hope and future. “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for good and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will hear you. (Jeremiah 29:11,12)

If you turn at my reproof, behold, I will pour out my spirit to you; I will make my words known to you. (Proverbs 1:23 ESV) So as I choose to absolutely relinquish control of my future and destiny and turn at God’s loving rebuke (correction) which comes through what He “allows” to show up in my body and life, then I have His promise that I will have an everlasting flow of a river of Living water springing up out of me from the well of Infinite supply; the sweet matchless grace endued with the very presence of Jesus. Are you hearing what I just said?
“All of Him” is living “in me” (and in you) and now that is true freedom to be ALL that He has destined for me. All I have to do is walk it out.

Now and forever God You reign; Yours is the kingdom, Yours is the glory, Yours is the Name above all names! What a powerful Name it is. The Name of Jesus Christ my King. What a powerful Name it is! Nothing can stand against The Name of Jesus.

Jesus, Jesus, You make the darkness tremble and in the light of Your countenance, all must bow and surrender to Your domain. All darkness flee now, in Jesus mighty name! In His likeness transformed; I shall never be the same, and in Him remain!
