Holy Spirit, move on our World.

Pursue peace with all people, and holiness, without which no one will see the Lord” (NKJV Heb 12:14).

 
Mary Hunt practicing classical organ worship music.

I hear the Holy Spirit, as others also say, calling us to new and surprising things. Pray and Witness daily. He will use us in new places of ministry, spiritually and physically. Do not seek provision for these, he will so provide his way. Also, prayer is very powerful, as incense rising to his Throne. Believe by faith, know he hears and acts on every prayer divinely, whether you see or do not see visibly. Tend to scriptural teaching. Rid yourselves of things that block God. Dwell in his Divine Love. “Forgive fast! Love slowly!” as some say.

A Gift. Your salvation or religious faith does not depend on church, doctrine, works, good deeds, prayer, reading the Bible. These things will not save you. Only your relationship with his wonderful person will save you, Jesus Messiah, the Son of God. He gives this to you as a free gift, you can not earn it. Ask him. Repent of your sins, and believe wholly in him. Receive the gift of his loving relationship. Practice the daily Presence of God.

Consider, 150,000-180,000 people die worldwide everyday. How many actually expect death today? Have you ever helped anyone prepare for death? How many live for Jesus Messiah? How many actually enter Heaven? Most people, I've seen, die as they live, in love or hate. Why is there a Hell? Who goes there? Who goes to Heaven? What does God's Word say? And what is your destiny?

Why these severe winter storms? The Northeast is the most unchurched attending, non-Bible believing section of the USA. Even TV News surveys have reflected this. Does God care? Time to turn to Jesus Messiah and reflect on God. Job writes,

From the chamber of the South comes the whirlwind, And cold from the scattering winds of the North. By the breath of God ice is given, And the broad waters are frozen. Also with moisture He saturates the thick clouds; He scatters His bright clouds. And they swirl about, being turned by His guidance, That they may do whatever He commands them On the face of the whole earth. He causes it to come, Whether for correction, Or for His land, Or for mercy” (NKJV, Job 37:9-13).

Pornography is a great deception gripping the world, society, and the church. Pornography hinders a man's love relationship with God, as it hinders and hurts the love relationship with his wife. Likewise, this occurs with women as well as men. This tears children, marriages, and families. Pornography is the addiction link to world prostitution and trafficking. God warns,

Pursue peace with all people, and holiness, without which no one will see the Lord” (NKJV Heb 12:14).

Witness Report. My brother's feet and my hands were very cold this morning as we two friends ministered and prayed for healing in the town market barn. Jesus was standing with us from our starting prayer. We talked with many people, a Jewish man, Philippine woman, couple of Spanish ladies, a seasoned Veteran crew chief from a C-130, teens, singles, the elderly, mothers, children, dads, many women and many men. “I also send the children,” Jesus whispered to me earlier. They too are important. Oh yes, four or five truckers came in separately at different times to ask for red witness stickers for their trucks. Go figure! We used Arthur Blessitt reds as well as Way of the Master witness dollars and pennies. Adults and children loved them. We gave out 117 reds even in the cold. How can you be so cold and have so much fun?

Must Christians pray for the World? I call it World Power Prayer!
Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for All Men, for Kings and All who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence.
For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who desires All Men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus, who gave Himself a ransom for All, to be testified in due time” (NKJV 1 Tim 2:1-6).

Must Christians actively witness, teach, and preach the Word?
I charge you therefore before God and the Lord Jesus Christ, who will judge the living and the dead at His appearing and His kingdom: Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season.
Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all long suffering and teaching. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables” (NKJV 1 Tim 4:1-4).

Too many Police Officers are attacked. Lord, divinely protect our just officers who serve our neighborhoods and our nation to uphold our laws. Remind them to pray. Bring them home safely to their families each day. God bless our nation.

God of Love, I pray for your Spirit to move on this Whole World.

Thoughts from the Holy Spirit

For we are to God the fragrance of Christ among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing.”



One thing's for certain. The Creator created people to Love, like a child to a father and mother. Thus, he would Not create them to hate, abuse, and kill. Man's free will distorted that all by himself; then man turns and blames it on God! Makes no sense. God Loves his Creation like a master artist.

How does GOD regard you? God is Big! He created a Universe from nothing 14 Billion light years across precisely orbiting some 100 Billion Galaxies. Two primary qualities of God are infinite Holiness and Love. “Be Holy, for I am Holy,” says the Father (1 Pet 1:16). “Then God said, Let Us make man in Our image (Father, Son, Holy Spirit) according to Our likeness” (Gen 1:26).
    To man Jesus said, “Love one another as I have loved you” (John 15:12). And God sent Jesus to redeem you and to cover your sin, to teach you how to love. When you turn to him, he forgives your sins perfectly, he forgets perfectly, and he cleans your sins perfectly.
    Put on the Savior Jesus in your body, mind, heart, and spirit as a cloak to stand before the all Holy God. He calls you to dwell constantly in his Holiness and Love. That's how God regards you.

Simply stated, God is perfect Light, Love, and Holiness. He can not sin. Justice is one of his perfections. As Master of all Creation, he is also the Healer. Jesus came to show us the Way to God, the Truth about God, and Life with God. God is divinely three persons in One God. He created Creation from Love.
    (To understand One God as Three Persons in the Trinity, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, look at this number “123”. It's one number composed of three digits with different values or functions.)
    Satan, with his demons, is a rebellious angel who absolutely hates and deceives. He is the father of evil and lies. He comes to steal, kill, and destroy. People often blame this work on the Holy God. God is Never the author of evil. Followers of Jesus can defeat the attacks of the devils with warrior angels to help.
   God gives us the gift of free will to choose between good and evil, but not without eternal consequences.

It is certain, when wicked men steal, abuse, kill, and destroy the Master Artist's creation, this evil arouses God's Wrath. Perfect Justice demands just punishment. Rebellion against the Eternal God and his instruction demands eternal punishment, itself. False gods, false doctrines, false priests, man's deceit and lies are no excuse against the Holy Divine Spirit of Truth or even his instilled truth in man's internal conscience. 
   As Jesus the Messiah warns, the wicked are sentenced to “where the worm does not die and the fire is not quenched.” This is the lot of Hitler, Stalin, Mao Tze-Tung, and any unrepentant authors of rebellion, great or less, against the Creator.

To activate God's flowing Love, Man keys his mind with Faith, receives Divine Love into the chambers of his heart, and disperses it to the two-fold being of his body and spirit. Love is not just a manifestation of God; Love is the essence in the Divine Trinity. “God is Love.”  
    It is also termed God's Presence, God's Grace or Favor, the Anointing of the Spirit, his Healing Power, or his Life Force. All in reality is God's Love.
    God creates and sustains by his Love. His Love is the Gift of Life in man's body and spirit. Man's body contains some 80-100 trillion cells, each more complicated than a computer as seen under a high power electron microscope. The known Universe contains some 100 Billion Galaxies. All by God's Love. Conclusion: learn to pray and to love.

Why does God completely reject unforgiveness? Entrance to Heaven is locked from unforgiveness. (NKJV Mt 6:15) "But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.” Imagine the putrid stink of a skunk; it is gagging. God will not admit such a smell into his House!
    Conversely, there is an aromatic perfume dominating Heaven. (Eph 5:1-2) “Therefore be imitators of God as dear children. And walk in love, as Christ also has loved us and given Himself for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet-smelling aroma.”
    To the Holy God, we are in our witness to Jesus His Son the sweetest smell existing. (2 Co 2:15) “For we are to God the fragrance of Christ among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing.”
    At one time, I smelled such an overwhelming perfume, I went to the door in my hallway to find the, I thought, “feminine” source of such beauty. No one was there! Returning to my desk, I now discovered the aroma stopped and started as I closed and opened my Bible! It was indeed the “fragrance of Christ,” the WORD.

Seek the Loving God,
Bill

Dare to Follow Christ the Messiah

A disciple must first give up everything.


The secret of following Christ the Messiah is ignored by many. For the servant of God, there is only one agenda. 
The thing a disciple must do is give up every thing.
(NKJV all scriptures, Lu 14:33) "So likewise, whoever of you does not forsake all that he has cannot be My disciple.”

2) Repent. There are those who think achieving Heaven is a piece of cake. At the end of life, they surmise, God will simply forgive them. But there is no salvation without heartfelt repentance. I have seen it. Most people die the way they have lived. People choose their destiny, heaven or hell, by the way they live. Every day the choice is made.
(Lu 13:3) "I tell you, no; but unless you repent you will all likewise perish.”

3) Humble. God desires servants contrite of sin and humble in spirit. 
Humble is not weakness but a strength which seeks the benefit of others. “No greater love has anyone, than to lay down his life for another.”
(Isa 57:15) For thus says the High and Lofty One Who inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy: "I dwell in the high and holy place, With him who has a contrite and humble spirit, To revive the spirit of the humble, And to revive the heart of the contrite ones.”

4) Forgive. Men little realize the Hebrew in the Lord's Prayer requires the forgiveness of every-little-offense, no matter how small, to merit God's forgiveness. The All Holy God will not stand in the presence of sin. Total redemption is achieved only by the cross of Jesus.
(Mt 6:14) "For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. 15 "But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.”

5) Love. Don't make Love your pretense.
Be the most loving person your friends know.
Every true hug brings healing in the heart.
Every good deed pays forward.
God created you to love Him and others.
All his Words teach his Love.
God does not give Love, He is Love.
It's his very Being.
Jesus first loves you, so you'll know Love.
(Lu 10:27) So he answered and said," 'You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, and with all your mind,' and 'your neighbor as yourself.'"

6) Faith is the key to involving God. You cannot please God without Faith.
(Mt 17:20) So Jesus said to them, "Because of your unbelief; for assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there!' and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you.”

7) Holy. We achieve holiness only through redemption of Jesus on that cross. I am bought, paid for, ransomed, and redeemed only through the Blood of Jesus. He alone is the sinless sacrifice for all repented sin. Put on Christ. He alone is perfectly sinless.
(Heb 12:14) Pursue peace with all people, and holiness, without which no one will see the Lord.

8) Each day, put on Jesus like a garment. 
 Walk as Jesus walked. Love as Jesus loves.
(1Jo 1:7) But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.

9) Live for God. Where is God's true servant? Take up God's daily cross, tasks, and assignments, even to the point of death.
(Lu 9:23) Then He said to them all, "If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, take up his cross daily, and follow Me.
24 "For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will save it.
25 "For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and is himself destroyed or lost?”

10) Trust God. No matter what, even when you don't understand. 
Trust in God with all your heart, and you will see his miracles and care for you. I have prayed, “Lord, whether I live or whether I die, my life is in your hands.”
(Pr 3:5) Trust in the LORD with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding;
6 In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.

11) Overwhelming Joy. There is power and strength and Faith in the Joy of the Lord. Joy is a prime attribute of God's power and marks his divine presence.
(Neh 8:10) “For this day is holy to our LORD. Do not sorrow, for the joy of the LORD is your strength."

12) Resist the devil. Block him. In spiritual circumstance, be ready to fight the devil's schemes.
(1Pe 5:6,NKJV all scriptures.) Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time,
7 casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.
8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.
9 Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world.
