The Surgeon General just said “that this is our Pearl Harbor” There is a story in the Bible about the Children of Israel sending out 12 spies to check out the Promised Land to see what they were up against. If you know the story; 10 of the spies came back with a negative report saying that these men are giants and we are but grasshoppers in their sight. Only two men came back with a positive report saying we can take the Land; they were Joshua and Caleb.
We are faced with the same dilemma today. Will we believe and trust God for his protection and take back the land or will we see the Corona Virus as an unbeatable giant. If you spend a lot of time watching the news you will hear from the 10 spies. If you investigate the Bible and stand on the promises faith and hope will rise in your heart. I don’t know about you; but I choose to side with Joshua and Caleb and take the Land.
You must have a covenant (born again relationship) with God. You must know him. I believe that God is bigger than any plague. I pray that you will remember what happened after we were attacked at Pearl Harbor; we fought back and won! This war is winnable through Jesus!!! Just place your trust in him and his Promises!
Exodus 12:13 (KJV)
13 And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where ye are: and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and the plague shall not be upon you to destroy you, when I smite the land of Egypt.
1 John 4:4 (KJV)
4 Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.
Numbers 13:30 (ESV)
30 But Caleb quieted the people before Moses and said, “Let us go up at once and occupy it, for we are well able to overcome it.”
Yesterday, God spoke to my heart and gave me this to share with people to encourage them. He told me that “he will part the Red Sea and they will be able to walk through it and onto dry ground.” Remember the story of the Children of Israel when they were being chased by Pharaoh and his army and had their backs against the Red Sea. This isn’t much different today then the Corona Virus. We are up against it; so, what do we do? Well you all have problem seen the movie “The Ten Commandments” and this scene. God parted the waters and the children of Israel walked through to the other side. It was a miracle. I thought about this and asked God and said “Lord, that really wasn’t faith; they had no choice.” He spoke to me and told me that it was faith. They could have turned back and surrendered to Pharaoh and the Egyptians and have gone back to slavery. I had never thought of this. Later, in their hearts many would do that and grumble and not believe and pay a great price for that. They had to believe that the waters would hold until they crossed. Old people and crying children had to go across too. There could have been a million or more. This would have taken a long, long time.
Remember, Promises aren’t automatic they must be enforced. They had to believe. We must believe. They made it. You can make it. The answer to the virus isn’t more toilet paper but trusting in God and his Promises.
If you are not a believer, I encourage you to accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior and trust him with your life and your health. He can protect you! If you are a believer, and are filled with fear, I encourage you to pray this prayer that is found in a miraculous Bible Story “Lord I believe, help my unbelief.” Then just walk through the Red Sea; the seas will part and stay parted and you will come out on dry land.
Psalm 91:10 (ESV)
10 no evil shall be allowed to befall you, no plague come near your tent.
Isaiah 54:17 (ESV)
17 no weapon that is fashioned against you shall succeed, and you shall refute every tongue that rises against you in judgment. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD and their vindication from me, declares the LORD.”
2 Corinthians 1:20 (KJV)
20 For all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us.
FDR’s First Inaugural Address
“This is preeminently the time to speak the truth, the whole truth, frankly and boldly. Nor need we shrink from honestly facing conditions in our country today. This great Nation will endure as it has endured, will revive and will prosper. So, first of all, let me assert my firm belief that the only thing we have to fear is fear itself—nameless, unreasoning, unjustified terror which paralyzes needed efforts to convert retreat into advance!”
In this dedication of a Nation we humbly ask the blessing of God. May He protect each and every one of us. May He guide me in the days to come.
I thought this excerpt from this historical speech fits like a glove with what we are going through today. We will overcome! They did! We will!
For the last several days God has been speaking to my heart to share something concerning this subject. Fear, it seems, has gripped the whole world. First, let me say that if you are not a Born-Again Christian, this doesn’t apply to you. You should take every precaution to protect yourself.
First let me say this from 2 Timothy 1:7 (ESV)
“for God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.” If you a Bible believing Christian, you don’t have to be afraid. You can protect yourself with the Promises of God’s Word. Just put child-like faith in them. Here are two of the Promises that I am standing on.
Isaiah 54:17 (ESV)
“no weapon that is fashioned against you shall succeed”
Psalm 91:10 (ESV)
“no evil shall be allowed to befall you, no plague come near your tent”
I have complete confidence that God will protect me and any child of God that places his faith in him. You don’t have to be afraid; just trust God!
Hebrews 4:12 (ESV) says “For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword”
2 Corinthians 1:20 (KJV) says “For all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen”
God is bigger than any situation or problem. I hope this will encourage you. Let me leave you with this promise.
Isaiah 41:10 (ESV) “fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
When you are going through it. Whether it is a health issue; financial stress; loss of a loved one; or whatever else. This is what I do. I think about the past or I think about the future. I remember all the good things that God has done for me. If I am facing a sickness, for instance, I remember how he healed and took care of me before. I bookmark these things and make a memorial in my mind. If this hasn’t happened to you; you can gain inspiration by hearing other’s testimonies. That is what I did for 10 years when I was deathly sick. I was able to draw strength off a couple of Divine Healing testimonies and then eventually get that healing for myself. If you feel like everything has gone wrong, then think about heaven. Someday there won’t be any more pain or sickness or financial problems; but you will walk on streets of gold and live in a mansion especially designed for you. Jesus told his Disciples the night before he was betrayed in John 14 “Let you heart not be troubled; but believe in God and me.” Remember this from Romans 8:18: “For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us.” If you are a believer, this too shall pass. Don’t give up; God is greater than your circumstances.
I want to give God thanks from the bottom of my heart. This past month of January was a traumatic one. It was the one-year anniversary of my hospital visit of three weeks where I nearly died from congestive heart failure. Praise God he has healed me of that. He also healed me of ten years plus of chronic acute pain. I am very grateful to him. He has given me a Divine Healing Teaching ministry for which I am so thankful for.
I am going to be very honest. The last couple of months of 2019, I just got bitter and angry. I was frustrated that nobody seemed to really receive what I was teaching. I knew that God wants to take what I have learned and help a lot more people. I have had tremendous results with my own health. I have been able to help some through Facebook Live; but I wanted to touch so many more. That will happen. So, I got deathly sick in January. My lungs were clear, and my heart was fine; but my respiratory system was so compromised. I couldn’t hardly breath for 2 weeks. I kept forcing myself to work and work out hard at the YMCA. God has shown me how to walk in Divine Health in 99% of all areas; but this one area has plagued me from a child: Respiratory Infections. So, I asked the Lord what was going on. He told me “You’re gonna have to fight through this or you will die. I know the Lord well enough as well as my own body to realize this really happening. God showed me that I was letting my guard down (there were chinks in the Armor).
My angry attitudes towards things in my life were opening the door to these Respiratory infections. I asked for his forgiveness and began working on that and still am. God has done a might work in my attitude. Some of these things have been hanging around for years and just kept resurfacing. On January 20th, I surrendered it all to him and broke through. I stood on some Bible Promises and it worked! I could feel my body going from death to life. I had been on three antibiotics which weren’t working. God has healed me now physically, but the greatest healing took place in my heart.
I hope this will encourage someone who is going through something right now. DON’T GIVE UP-FIGHT THROUGH IT! God has great things ahead for me. I will be teaching again. This time he will be able to use me in a greater way because I will not be in the way anymore to hinder him. I can say is “Thank You Jesus.”
Around this time of your especially people get stressed out. Christmas time can be a tough time for many. It could be that you are missing family members or just the stress of buying gifts. I am missing some members of my family some gone and some lost for now. This is what I do to overcome the pain. I keep on casting. Casting meets to throw something forcefully in a specified direction. I used to fish and I had to keep on casting; sometimes many times to catch something. You may have to do this! In this case I am throwing it up to God to take. He then gives me a peace that passes understanding.
I have found that just praying ONLY about things in my life virtually never works. I always use a PROMISE and stand on that. It is a legal document that I simply put my child-like faith in and God honors it every time. It has transformed my prayer life doing it this way. I felt very strongly that there is someone or many that needed to hear this.
Be encouraged and don’t keep trying to carry the burden yourself; but CAST YOUR CARE ON HIM. HE CARES FOR YOU!
MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL MY FAMILY AND FRIENDS,
How Can I Be Healed Ministries
1 Peter 5:7 (ESV)
casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you.
How many of you remember the old show from the 90’s “Family Matters” with the nerdy but lovely character Steve Urkel. I have been binge watching the show on a channel I came across on TV. I was struck by the family and Christian values the show had. In a day and age, where sitcoms don’t have parents or if they do, they do they just are disrespected; it is a breath of fresh air!
I was watching a show where the father “Carl” was telling his son “Eddie” “I love you son.” It was so awesome. It’s a super funny show that’s well written with great characters and great character.
My favorite episode is available on YouTube. It may be a little fuzzy and you have to watch it in clips. How often do you see a sitcom character give his life to Christ? Let me answer that: ONCE. That is why I love Steve Urkel and the Family does matter!!!
Short and To the Point:
Most of you who know me; know that I just started witnessing intently just over a week ago. This is something that I have always wanted to do; but was too cowardly. It only took me 43 years as a Christian. Only 2 out of 100 regularly do according to statistics so I had a lot of company.
God called us to witness so how do we obey this and please him in it. The Great Commission isn’t extra credit or do it if you feel like it; it’s required and commanded. It was Jesus last instructions to his disciples. I figure if he died for me the least, I can do is tell others what he did for me. There are people around the world dying and being tortured for standing up for Jesus and I can’t risk the worse. In America, that someone might roll their eyes or swear at me.
I believe there are 3 ways to witness. I am using the “Way of the Master” by Ray Comfort and Kirk Cameron. I believe it to be the most Biblically sound. First, and anyone can do this. I use the 10 Commandment Coins from www. Living Waters.com. They are about 16 cents each. I also will give out a Gospel of John Tract to some. They are from TGS International. They are about 25 cents each. Then, in my case I will give out a Website/FB Live Business Card if they want more information. Just google them.
First, anyone can do this. I do. Wherever you go; leave a coin. It has the 10 commandments on one side and tells you how to Repent and be Saved on the other. It also has a short link for more info. (needgod.com). You can put them in virtually any place that people will look later. I know of at least 2 people that got Saved (found the Lord) that way. If you gave out a 1000 of them; probably there is a good chance that someone may have got saved. This is so easy and cost effective. If you do nothing else; please consider at least doing this!
The second way is to engage a person (friend or stranger) in a Conversation and then give them a 10 Commandments Coin. Just say “Could I give one of these to you as a gift and whatever else you want to say.” A quick in and out.
The third and most effective way. Take them all the way (if they let you). Take them through some of the commandments in a gentle and loving spirit and try to lead them to Christ (if they are ready). This will take courage!
Pray for Boldness and Pray for those who you will talk to!
Mark 16:15 (ESV)
15 And he said to them, “Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation.”
