I have this recurring thought of someone who wanted more power in our blogs and thought that ours were to say 'wishy washy' like if we don't really mean what we say. Or that we don't have any power to turn the water into wine! Now what about our blogs? Do they need more power? Are there any dead there out there that we could raise up and it wouldn't be a problem for you? Perhaps some of you are sick? Would you mind getting we so we can have more healed people around here? Any leper who need cleansing? Now we are not mocking! We want proof we have Power!... Somewhere it says that you will be clothed with Power from above! And Jesus went about healing every desease and cast all demons out of the afflicted! Now why isn't happening here? Is God among us or not? Is Power really a criteria for God? Can we send rain where there's drought and bread where there's hunger, water for where there's thirst? But we look closely at something. Isn't that what the devil wanted to tempt Jesus in the wilderness about, "If you are really the son of God do this! If you are really the son of God do that! What don't you use your Power, aren't you God son? But let's turn there and take it from the horses mouth, bad saying I know, but let's just turn there... Matthew 4:1-11, ["...1Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil. 2And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights, he was afterward an hungred. 3And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread. 4But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God. 5Then the devil taketh him up into the holy city, and setteth him on a pinnacle of the temple, 6And saith unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down: for it is written, He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: and in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone. 7Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God. 8Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them; 9And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me. 10Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve. 11Then the devil leaveth him, and, behold, angels came and ministered unto him...] Now Jesus did not zap the devil out of existence or slap him on the face. But he did turn to the Power, the word of God, which breaks all arguments of the devil and by the Word of God all things were created in heaven and on earth. But we want to test God to see if he has any Power? Turning on the "Ifs'" and the "What If's'" and "How come this...?" Doubting God at what he says, like the devil told Eve, "Did God really say what said...?" No. We mustn't disbelieve God if something can be done if you ask him. But we should take the Lord name is vain just to see if there's any Power! There better be a good reason for the miracle you ask God in prayer and he will do it! He promises if it is a sincere request to do some good... Blessings. Hallelujah! Praise God! Bye! thbg
Now this a dramatization and should not be duplicated. I had a little wine in the ref for a year or so. I took it out and looked at the glass of water that I had set aside to see what would happen to it as I wrote the blog, Power! Indeed I thought! I took the water and drank it and it was water! Then I said let's go for it! I took the bottle of wine, took a sip and well it was cheap sweet wine! Then I filled half a glass of water, tap water and I thought, well ok, poured some cheap sweat wine into the water and it turned half red. I said it must taste like I don't
want to say! But I drank it and you know it did not taste like the wine in the bottle or the water, it tasted like the humblest mellow wine I ever tasted. I expected it tasted like flat soda pop, but now it was good, mellow and easy to drink. Take it at face value. Do not duplicate this experiment for any reason. I don't drink wine. I just thought I go to Cana and see what was happening there...take it easy...good night...Bye!
Thanks 'standingalone1229' for you kind comment and amen. And amen doubles the worth of coin, two amens triple the worth of the message. Thanks for standing by on this subject. May it benefit many...
Dear thbg--We did see a healing on 10-6-09. Blessingstoyou had a heart catheterization which disclosed that his heart is actually growing new vessels to do the work of one artery which is 100% clogged. The prayers of many CB members were at least a small part of that miracle. And I agree with Standingalone. As long as you are upholding the Word of God, there is power in your blogs. ;) YBIChrist--Ron.
Thanks to God that B2Y is doing better and we do thank all of those who prayed for him. But as for me, it is not about the Power, but the effectiveness of turning someone to the truth. That what matters to me. Thanks for you comment and update on B2Y, we hope in Jesus that he is strengthened more with each coming day. Amen.
