Daily Bible Verse
Acts 2:17-21 (peshitta)
It shall come to pass in the last days, said God, I will pour my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy and your young men shall see visions and your old men shall dream dreams; And upon my menservants and upon my maidservants will I pour out my Spirit in those days; and they shall prophesy; And I will show wonders in heaven and signs on the earth: blood and fire and vapor of smoke: The sun shall be changed into darkness and the moon into blood, before that great and fearful day of the Lord shall come. And it shall come to pass that whoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.

Written in my heart-death to life experience part 1 (11)

Written in My Heart: Death to Life Experience Part 1 (#11) Moving on with personal testimony to the second month after I was born again in Jesus Christ. Words cannot adequately express the overall delight in our God and His ways that I felt as Jesus revealed Himself through this painful death to life experience. The experience was most precious! On or about November 7, 2001, as I was meditating, I suddenly felt a sharp pain in the very center of the top of my left foot. The pain was concentrated in one small round spot about the size of the tip of a small finger. My thoughts turned to Jesus and nails being driven into His feet. Two evenings later the same thing happened, but, this time the sharp pain was concentrated in one small round spot about the size of the tip of a small finger in......

Testing the spirits

John Knox+

Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world 1 John 4:1 I am concerned that with the increase in the prophetic word and the proliferation of prophecy, that God is truly raising up in these last days; that discernment and wisdom is lacking among Gods people. One of my greatest fears is that when the Lord lays a prophetic word upon my spirit that I remain true to the flow of grace upon my heart. I am so aware that my thoughts and biases can creep in without me knowing. In all sincerity, there can be aspects of my prophetic word that is not from the heart of God. Since I am aware of this so called ‘false word’ I am all the more discerning when I hear and read other......

Use your God given authority

It is time to take control of your life, for if you do not, someone or circumstances will rule over you. Most likely these ‘other rulers’ will not have your best interests at heart. From my experience only the God of the Bible has a plan for us that will cause us to prosper and be over comers. But we have to first show that we mean business with God before he will help us. Is this a radical thought? Far too many of Gods believers sit around waiting for God to act and solve their problems. God is not a wizard. Despite this knowledge many Christians expect God to act like a benevolent wizard. ‘Poof’ and all will be OK. Sometimes their prayers will reflect this attitude. We need to realize that God and we are in a partnership; for the moment we were born again and......

The fingerprints of God

It seemed like they would have every reason to be angry at God. Late last summer their youngest child had been born with Down's Syndrome late last summer. Like a lot of children with Down's Syndrome, he has heart trouble. There are two holes in his heart as well as an unclosed pulmonary artery and a mitral valve that is too tight.He spent many weeks in intensive care. He is home now but is still must be fed by a feeding tube. I met this precious little boy, his mom, dad and his three siblings for the first time last week. I had learned his story a few weeks ago when the pastor who heads the prayer teams, sent out a prayer request to all the prayer team members. Yes, we could pray but my husband wondered if there was something more we could do for this family. We decided to find......

The wrong point of view

I couldn't understand it. I simply could not understand it. Of course I knew that younger drivers were neither as experienced or as good of drivers as myself (each generation seems to think that about the younger generation the older they get), but I just could not understand why anyone would back out of a parking spot staring straight ahead. What was wrong with these people? Were they that distracted or careless? Why didn't they pay attention to where they were going? If I hadn't been paying attention, they might have hit me! Hmm... they were probably sending a text and trying to back up at the same time. Silly people! This sort of thing seemed to be happening more and more, much to my chagrin. Then a few weeks ago I became one of "those" people. Yes, I must......

Written in my heart god's assignment

Written In My Heart: God’s Assignment (#10) I have started to share the awesome work done by the Holy Spirit after I surrendered to God. I now hear the Holy Spirit speak within me; most often by guiding my thoughts, but, at times by directly hearing Him speak within in a calm soft voice. In this writing, I will testify to the ministry assignment given that first month, October 2001. On the night when my spirit was regenerated, October 2, 2001, and I was "born again," I felt this sense of urgency as if there was something Jesus wanted me to do. I earnestly prayed to know what it was Jesus had prepared in advance for me to do. The Holy Spirit spoke within me this revelation on Saturday (a Sabbath), October 27, 2001: Minister to Children, Focus on the Young, These Little Ones......

The challenge of change

We all have plans. Plans for the day, the week, the month. Plans for our future, our children, our retirement. Oh, the plans we make, and Oh, how quickly they can change right before our eyes. I remember being in high school, thinking that one day I would go on to school in some area of psychology. I was sure I was going to have a successful career, hopefully one day get married, probably not have kids (I really wasn’t a “kid” person)….. I had many plans back then, not a single one of them worked out the way I had anticipated. My plans changed in many ways, because of many events, because of choices I made, some good and some bad, but in the end God’s plan came together just as He had planned. I am married now, for the second time, not as I would’ve......
