    • If yes, do you really truly believe it yourself? Years ago, it seemed like I had plenty of opportunities to pray for sick people in Jesus's name. God would instantly physically heal them or it would come very quickly after praying for them and for some it would not. I don’t think God chooses to love one person more than the other, but their journey through life may be different for them then what you have asked God for. Now, this doesn't mean you should stop praying for people when you don't see God heal them, because you may be the one God can use to work through for the Spirit to give the gift of healing in the next person you pray for. Know that belief in God to heal is more than the actual result of the healing, but it can open up to you and the recipient the knowledge of God in new way. God our healer! And then if they are not a believer it is a chance to share the gospel message with them. The challenging part is finding those opportunities today to pray. I seen this coming for a while, but now it has fully planted itself in the church among so many also. What’s the problem? “Unbelief” especially in this area of healing, but the question is why? I believe it also affects our mission in Christ of bring the knowledge of God to a dying world. I don’t have a problem with people looking for medical solutions to remedy their problems in fact I think it is smart, but the trust we place in others, the camaraderie found in doing it and the attention you can get from it has diluted our belief that God can really heal us. So, most church talk today after the weather, current events or gossip dominates around getting attention or having our conversations center around our sicknesses, diseases, aches and pains we have. This is especially true for the folks who are growing older that should be sharing testimonies of Christ healing in our bodies, but now "sicknesses" I notice is what many young people want to talk about too. Each having their own debilitation I guess to feel special or voice their own uniqueness. What I'm watching is not limited to physical, but a growing interest in finding the right pills to take to care of them emotionally. So even though we pray for healing the prayers are now; God, give wisdom to the docs and guide the surgeon’s hands, instead of looking to God first to heal you and keep you healthy. And yes, that includes us cooperating with staying healthy, but that's a whole other subject. Remember this body we were given is a temple of the Holy Spirit. The blessing of permissibility and having plenty can be its own obstacle, enjoy that blessings and don’t abuse it. I shared a few experiences in a video of my encounters with God’s healing. Let me tell you, I go often into prayer to ask the Lord for healing in my own body believing He will and many times He has, and for the times He hasn’t then I go seek the help I need which honestly is almost like never. I am most grateful for that and humbled. But I want Him to have the first place and my reliance to be on Him to take care of me. I think the pain from not doing so will be part of the judgment and this reckoning we have now entered and will intensify in the months and years ahead. You will have wished you had trusted Jesus to heal you and help you to live right.  
    • I agree, whatever translation works for you is the right one. Some Bibles may have a better translation but for most it's the message that counts.
    • Sometimes you can learn something about what is coming by how folks have been trained to do something that is known but is the process of being created. I am referring to the work of God behind the scenes.  I recently watched a movie with my wife called "Hidden figures". It was an inspiring movie in that some most unlikely figures were prepared for a known work with things involved that yet had to be created. There were obstacles that seemingly to be standing in the way that no one was sure how to overcome in order for this work to become a reality. The thing that had to be done was known but all the other things in how to get there were unknown. And the unknown is the scariest to people, but you will not know the joy of finding out unless you walk into and through it to the other side. What was needed was the right people to make it happen each playing their part to fulfill a bigger picture.  Each of the folks in this movie based on a true story could have stopped at any time along their journey which I am sure knowing how different circumstances of life come along befalling all mankind could have discourage them at any time to do just that, but they did not quit!. In this case of this story we put a man in space and then eventually on the moon. For us as believers God made us more than overcomers, we are conquerors in Christ Jesus through the love of God. I want to share my testimony of that call for me and why I won't quit until I see Jesus. I was called to the ministry in 1988. This was shortly after becoming a believer having accepted God's invitation through Jesus's sacrifice on the cross and repentance of my sin that put Him there. I believe God saved me, called me and prepared me all these years for TODAY! I share about this call to the ministry in a video and it is something you want to hear. It is true we have entered the day reckoning the time of judgment, but God has had a plan all along to demonstrate His glory in the final scene of the last act. He has prepared people to help through this transition to the end and hopefully soon the return of our Lord Jesus Christ. There is a 17-minute prophecy at the end unlike anything you may have heard before, personal to me, but it’s encouraging to all who have stayed faithful and loyal like King David in spite of some of our own failings in life. This message is for you too not to give up that God has a plan for you.  What about you what is your story? Don't quit, don't give up and press forward in Christ Jesus to the finish line.     
    • Over the years having heard so many sermons about grace it has really come to my attention that many professing Christians I don't think know what it is. The problem with that is we are entering a time that we will need God's grace like never before to avoid the landmines being placed around us by the devil and his children. We will need the ability to walk in victory with Jesus and our own strength simply is not enough. Many today are living a Christian lifestyle and have thinking that opposes grace. What is most concerning about that is when they are really in trouble in the days ahead, I mean really in TROUBLE and need the grace of God, He will resist them just like they resisted Him! I made a 20-minute video that will shed some light on grace. And maybe even give you some insights you haven't heard that would persuade you to live a little differently if you already are not.      
    • What do you think is the best version of the bible to read? Does it make a difference?  I shared some insight into this in a short 3.5-minute video. Let me know what you think is there a right or wrong one and why?
