Archive for the ‘Jesus my Savior!’ Category

We just returned from Chicago, where we attended the Jesusculture Awakening Conference.  Jesusculture is a band that dedicates itself exclusively to praising Jesus (the Anointed).  Along with this band, there were many others, including Hillsong United, from Australia.  The music was great and we praised and worshiped the Lord with 16000 other people, mostly young people.  It was amazing!  There were many speakers, including Bill Johnson and Reinhard Bonnke,(evangelist) Lou Engle, Cindy Jacobs,(prophet) Sean Smith, and Banning Liebscher.  This was one of the first conferences I had ever been to, and it was very important to me.

Jesus is Lord.

WoW!  This is a revelation to me.  My aim is to write information and revelations that the Lord gives to me as I read His word.  Please don’t be put off by this as I believe the Lord loves all of us equally, and is waiting to hear from us and teach us to grow closer to Him.  To know Him.  That is my goal.  He is the best thing that has ever happened to me.

See you soon!

 

I am glad that I finally found you again.  I have not been very active in writing for a while, as I have been busy moving and other things, but I hope to get back to Bible study and get more revelation from the Lord.  He is always giving me new and interesting things to do.  I have been praying for a lot of people lately.  Lord help me to post more!!

 

For most of my life, I thought that when Jesus said, “A tree is known by it’s fruit”, He ment the fruit of saved souls.  And that said to me that I was supposed to go around leading people to Christ.   I was pretty bad at it, since I didn’t know how and I didn’t know enough to ask God what to do.  I thought that my very salvation was at stake if I didn’t lead people to be saved.

But I just received revelation as I was reading Matthew 12:33-37.  Jesus was talking to the Pharisees when He said, “make the tree good, and his fruit good; or else make the tree corrupt and his fruit corrupt, for a tree is known by it’s fruit”.  Then I realized that everything that we say and do plants seeds into the hearts of others.   Jesus was also talking about what is in our hearts and what comes out of our mouths,  (for out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks), vs.34b.  If we have anger and resentment and fear in our hearts, we will surly dump it onto others.  We need to be watching what we put into our hearts: ideas, opinions of others, what we see on television and hear from the radio.  There are many outside sources that speak to us and can color our insight and pull us down. 

What we see and hear is a seed that is planted in us and grows into a tree.  If the tree is to produce good fruit we must guard our hearts and keep bad stuff out.  We cannot always avoid negative comments and people, but we can pray that the Lord will clean that stuff out of us before it takes root and becomes a part of our attitudes and behaviors. 

Have you ever noticed when you are around negative people, that before long you are feeling depressed or angry, and sometimes even joining in on the ‘bashing session’?  We can be pulled down so easily.  In Matthew 12:36-37,Jesus says,”But I say to you that for every idle word men may speak, they will give account of it in the day of judgment.  For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.”

Our fruit is every word that falls from our lips, whether uplifting or negative.  Let’s try to speak life and good things to and about others.  Let’s lift each other up.  We will be happier and so will they.  I think our Lord wants our lives to be filled with joy and blessings, for us and others.

Our words are our seeds that we cast in every direction, into other hearts.  What kind of fruit are we producing?  What kind of fruit do we want to produce?

The Lord is trying to tell us that a flood is coming.  Only this time it is a flood of His glory.

Habakkuk 2:14, For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea.  (The glory of the Lord will fill the earth and flood it with the knowledge of Him.  Not one person will have an excuse for not believing in God when they see and experience His glory.)

Luke 17:26-30  And as it was in the days of Noah, so it will also be in the days of the Son of Man: They ate, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all… (v.30) Even so will it be in the day when the Son of Man is revealed.  (I believe that this will be the day of salvation for many, and the day of offence for some.)

Ezekiel 47 Then he brought me back to the door of the temple; and there was water, flowing from under the threshold of the temple toward the east, for the front of the temple faced east, the water was flowing from under the right side of the temple, south of the altar. (v.3) the man measured 1000 cubits and he brought me through the waters, the water came up to my ankles.  (INCREASE)

(v.4) Again he measured 1000 and brought me through the waters: the water came up to my knees. (BURSTING FORTH)   And again he measured, and the water was up to my waist.  (RAPIDS)

(v.5)  And again he measured 1000, and it was a river that I could not cross for the water was too deep, water in which one must swim.  (FRUITFULNESS)

The water represents the Holy Spirit.  The water to the ankles is the increase of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is increasing more and more upon the earth right now.  Water to the knees is getting hard to walk in, and it is the bursting forth of the Spirit, which could happen at any time.  Water to the waist is very hard to traverse, and you are in the rapids, but once the water gets so deep that you cannot walk in it and must swim, you are completely engulfed in the Holy Spirit and you start to become fruitful.  At this point, God can use you because you are completely relying on Him for everything, including your very life.

I am very excited to be living at this time when the glory of the Lord could fall at any minute.                     Thank You Lord.   Even so, come Lord Jesus!!!

This Sunday our Pastor talked about our strength in the Lord.  I have read about who I am in the Lord many times as I read my Bible, but It never really sank into my mind.  She wanted us to understand that God lives in us, and therefore we can do anything because we have the strength of God and the power of God living in us.  It is God’s Holy Spirit that lives in us, God’s actual Spirit.   She started by reading (Psalm 46:1-2). ” God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble”.  Therefore we will not fear, even though the earth be removed and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea.   Wow!  We are not to be afraid while the earth is convulsing around us.  That is a pretty awesome statement.

“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me”,  (Philip.4:13).

(Isaiah 41:10 ) Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God.  I will strengthen you.  Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.

(2 Corinthians 5:21 ) “For He has made Him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him.”  Jesus was made sin for us.  God put all the sins of the world on Jesus so that He could put rightness upon us.  We are covered with the blood of Jesus because of the sacrifice He made for us, to save us.  When God looks at us, He sees us through the filter of the blood and we are clean before Him.  We can approach His throne and talk with Him because of the blood Jesus shed.

(2 Corinthians 9:8)  And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that you , always having all-sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work…

(Mark  16:15-18)  And He said unto them, “Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.  He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he what believeth not shall be damned.  And these signs shall follow them that believe; In My name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;  they shall take up serpents, and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.”

God has given us mighty power if we believe.  We actually have the Spirit what raised Jesus from the dead living in us, and He has great power.  We can do anything God wills.  The believer is powerful only as long as he believes and follows our Lord.  We must obey Him and obey quickly when He tells us to do something.  Let us truly follow our Lord and surrender to his call.

If the church could only get this into our spirits, the nations would belong to the Lord, for we would go out with such great power that the people would be amazed and fear, and believe in the Lord!

If our Lord and Savior invited us to a great supper, would we go or would we invent excuses not to attend?  Think about why you would be hesitant to attend. Would you be too tired or lazy to attend?  Would you think you had plenty of time until the end, and would therefore not feel the urgency to attend?  Or do you not even believe there is a God, and so would not think it was a real invitation.

(Luke 14: 16)  A certain man gave a great supper and invited many, and sent his servant at supper time to say to those who were invited, “Come, for all things are now ready.”  But they all with one accord began to make excuses.  The first said, “I have bought a piece of ground, and I must go and see it.  I ask you to have me excused.”  Another said, “I have bought five yoke of oxen, and I am going to test them.  I ask you to have me excused.”  And another said, ” I have married a wife, and therefore cannot come”.

Why did not these who were invited want to come to the dinner?  I think sometimes we are just to lazy to follow-up on our commitments.  We would rather just sit at home and relax.  This has happened to me.  I have committed to something, but when the time arrives, I just am not in the mood.  I don’t want to put out the energy to do the thing.  And sometimes I disappoint people by my laziness.  I use every excuse I can think of, and I probably miss out on a great time because of it.  Even though these people had legitimate things to do, they could have put them off easily until the next day, and why could not the married man bring his wife to the supper?

The thing is, that the Lord is talking about the very important supper that His chosen people, the Jews, were invited to.  The Jews were His beloved people and therefore were special to Him.  He wanted to abide with them, to fellowship with them, but they would not obey his laws and they did not want to draw close to Him.   In some cases, they were afraid because they might be in disobedience.

The master was very angry and told his servants to go out and invite everyone who would come from all over the city.  This included the poor, the lame , the blind.  The servants even went out to the highways and hedges to compel them to come in, so that his house would be filled with guests for the supper.

Because His chosen people would not accept Him and come, He invited us, the gentiles, the lost and hopeless ones.  And the house was filled.

The Lord is giving us a chance to come to Him during the period of His grace.  Don’t be left out in the cold while so many are in the house, warm and safe, and eating supper with our Lord!

Hallelujah !   Thank You, Lord

And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.  (Matthew 24:14)  The word ‘gospel’ means ‘good news’. ‘ And this good news will be preached.’  Why do people not take it as good news?  The ‘gospel of the kingdom’ is the best news that has ever been heard.  The news is that the kingdom of God has come down to earth, in the form of Jesus, the anointed of God, and that he has paid the price for every sin or mistake that we have ever made or will ever make.  Did you hear that?  He has paid the price and because of that, we are forgiven.

When the people would come into the temple in Jerusalem, they would bring a perfect, unspotted, lamb as a sacrifice for their sins.  In the ceremony, the man would put his hand on the head of the lamb to transfer his sins to the lamb.  At this time the purity of the lamb would be transferred, symbolically, to the man.  Then the lamb would be sacrificed, or killed, and it’s blood spilled out.  The lamb was killed because of the sin upon it.  The reason this sacrifice was made,  is because we can never be perfect before a perfect God.

God hates sin and His wrath is great against it.  Jesus came to earth as our perfect lamb.  All the terrible wrath which God had against sin was  directed at and put upon Jesus on the cross.  Jesus took the wrath of God in our place and because of that, God transferred Jesus’ purity onto us.  We are forgiven, pure, and holy before God because of the blood and voluntary death of our Lord Jesus.

Whether you are a follower of Jesus or not, the ‘Kingdom of God’  is upon you.  The kingdom is all around you, and it is time to step in and get to know the King.  He has sacrificed everything for you; His very life!  Ask Him if He is real, and He will make Himself known to you.

Question: Have you ever heard of a king who would give his life gladly for the life of his people?  He loves you enough to give His life away, just for you!  He took our death upon Himself, and gave us His life.

hallelujah!  What a Savior!
