Side Tracked? Hold On!

You may have reached out in faith, taken the steps, stepping out of your comfort zone with determination, and expectation of a favorable outcome and then you get a bad rap.

When you get a discouraging message, a response, a result, (like Jairus did in Mark 5:35) then faith and your expectation like a balloon get deflated, and doubt comes in like a flood.

Remember friends to raise a standard against this wiles of the enemy. Jesus is still here, that woman’s miracle is not stealing attention from you. Jesus is working on both of you at the same time!

Your miracle is right where it is suppose to be. Jesus is never late!

Believe brethren.

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Bleeding? Go In Peace!

Is your heart heavy? Are you still bleeding from that wound from long ago? Has it just started? Is there no balm in Gilead? Jeremiah 8:22

There is a balm in Gilead my brothers and sisters! Christ Jesus said; Daughter, (Son) your faith has healed you. Go in peace and be freed from your suffering. Mark 5:34

Daughter, (Son) your faith has healed you. Go in peace and be freed from your suffering. Mark 5:34

Will you not put a praise on it?

You are healed! The hold of sin, pain, hurt, reproach, and all ills is broken over you.

You are redeemed, set apart, set aside, set up for greatness. You are a testimony, a sign, a wonder, a sign post of pure grace in all ramification.

Come on bros, Sis, put a praise on it!!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Bleeding! Male and Female!

Mark 5:25 And a woman was there who had been subject to bleeding for twelve years. 26 She had suffered a great deal under the care of many doctors and had spent all she had, yet instead of getting better she grew worse. 27 When she heard about Jesus, she came up behind him in the crowd and touched his cloak, 28 because she thought, “If I just touch his clothes, I will be healed.” 29 Immediately her bleeding stopped and she felt in her body that she was freed from her suffering.

Like this woman, many of us, male and female are bleeding where eyes cannot see. We are bleeding in our hearts, and have tried many remedies but none have been able to cure us. We have seen many doctors, counselors, we have bent backwards and forward just to ease the pain but still no remedies. We have done all that we know and are still hurting!

Oh, how my heart bleeds due to betrayal, pain of lost companions, marriages, yours may be pregnancies after pregnancies, financial loss, grief, lonesomeness. Oh, how some of us have bleed out of all the relationships we have ever known. Our parents and siblings kept away from us, restricted, at best at arms lent for so many years.

We have worked on ourselves to somehow be accepted, approved, allowed, accommodated, but still bleeding, no remedies. We can hardly have a loved one around us. The stench of our conditions keeps them away. No one want to be seen near us, many do not want to be associated with us. Our hearts are bleeding! Lord! Will you please heal this we have cried?

And we want that loving touch, we crave the companionship, relationship, we do not want to be alone, but this blood! Pain? Hurts? Loss? The life blood, the essence of life, dripping away, weakening our hearts, our purse. We do not want to drift to oblivion so we seek out one last solution for we have heard and faith has arisen in us. Mark 5:28

Here comes Jesus friends, the solution bearer. He can heal every hurting heart. He can touch you where no other hand can go. He is ever present, ever faithful, always constant, he never sleeps, he never slumbers, only him can stop the bleeding, the pain deep within. Trust him and reach out!

Friends, we do need to reach out in faith to touch the helm of His garment. Mark 5:27

Some of us need to believe in love again! 🙂 There are still good people out there trust me! 🙂 I mean, I believe so!

Whatever ailment we have, there is healing, solution to our hurting heart, body, relationship, pocket, and much more.

Lord Jesus we reach out to you in faith today. We stretch out our hands to touch your garment, please heal us, stop this blood, you know what blood we are all talking about. You know where we all are bleeding from. That pain no one knows about, and the ones everyone knows about, heal it all Father in Jesus name.

Thank you Lord Jesus!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Recognized!

Jairus, one of the religious leaders recognized the grace and power upon the Carpenter’s Son, a Carpenter himself. Mark 5:22-24

Lord Jesus, let your glory fill our hearts, let your Spirit fill our soul, let US, the vessels you purchased, washed by your blood offer unto you continuously, sacrifices of praise.

Lord, let the religious begin to recognize your power within us. As your disciples Lord, may we be an extension of your love, grace and power.

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Wondering!Yet Delivered!

Why would Legion, the many demon that took over the man in Mark 5 request not to be sent out of the area? Why preferring to possess animals instead of leaving the area? The demons were afraid of judgement, they did not want to be sent into the abyss, they have gained a foothold in the area, they had to stay even if its in pigs.

Demons are spirit being, they need a body to operate on earth. Pray that your mind, body and soul will not be taken over by such in Jesus name

The Bible in Revelation 12:7 Then war broke out in heaven. Michael and his angels fought against the dragon, and the dragon and his angels fought back. 8 But he was not strong enough, and they lost their place in heaven. 9 The great dragon was hurled down, that ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, who leads the whole world astray. He was hurled to the earth, and his angels with him.

In Revelation 12 verse 12 the scriptures stated “Woe to the earth and the sea, because the devil has gone down to you!

Ever since the devil has been owing sway over the earth, pursuing and attacking the seed of The Woman of Revelation 12:13 When the dragon saw that he had been hurled to the earth, he pursued the woman who had given birth to the male child….. the earth helped the woman by opening its mouth and swallowing the river that the dragon had spewed out of his mouth. 17 Then the dragon (Satan) was enraged at the woman and went off to wage war against the rest of her offspring, those who keep God’s commands and hold fast their testimony about Jesus

The request of Mark 5:10 was made to enable them continue their task of waging war on those who keep God’s commands and hold fast their testimony about Jesus.

Who would have thought the demon possessed man was ordained before the foundation of the earth was laid to be an evangelist – Jeremiah 1:5?

The devil knew and came in legion, yet God’s plan and purpose still triumph. Jesus set him free! May the blood of Jesus set you and I free to fulfill our God given destiny also. Amen! Hallelujah

We can see the effect of these demonic agent everywhere in individual lives, on pews, pulpits, homes, councils, politics, judiciary, everywhere, with evil laws, evil deeds, counsel and what not spewing out left right and center to trap believers like this man was trapped until Jesus showed up.

Almighty God, you know all things. Today I ask that you will show up for me, my brothers and sisters.

Lord, we need you to show us the self destructive path we may have taken as a result of demonic influence.

Ancient of Days deliver us and set us free from every sin that easily binds.

Holy Spirit, Spirit of the Most High God we welcome you into our midst, have your way in our hearts, in the hearts of your people.

Thank you Lord for your mercy, without which no man can stand.

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Creation Is Waiting!

Mark 5:2 When Jesus got out of the boat, a man with an impure spirit came from the tombs to meet him. This man lived in the tombs, and no one could bind him anymore, not even with a chain. For he had often been chained hand and foot, but he tore the chains apart and broke the irons on his feet. No one was strong enough to subdue himNight and day among the tombs and in the hills he would cry out and cut himself with stones.

In perspective, this man must have thought he could not be tamed. He held sway over the dead for he was living in tombs. He was in charge and have been able to scare people off the path, he was a constant hindrance to the people in the area going about their legitimate business, trying to take the path through the tombs to get to one place or another.

However, when he saw the Lord Jesus in verse 6, he ran and fell on his knees in front of himHe shouted at the top of his voice, “What do you want with me, Jesus, Son of the Most High GodIn God’s name don’t torture me!” For Jesus had said to him, “Come out of this man, you impure spirit!”

This is what came to my mind, it may sound unchristian-like but I believe it is of the Lord.

There are individuals, like you and I, even a collective among a collective, in serious bondage, possessed by legions, holding sway among the dead, in tombs yet unaware. They are not aware of the dark that have shrouded their world because the Sons of God have not yet been revealed. Mark 5

When this man saw the Lord he knew an end has come to the darkness in him, however, having not seen the light, he was afraid. This is the only world he has known, he has gotten used to the evil all around. Mark 5:6

Are you a Christian? You reading this? Do you look inward and around, among our brethren, in our gatherings and see a shadow of this man? I do! I see evil daily, injustice, hatred, wickedness, oppression, betrayal, animosity, sorcery and divination sitting in high places and so much more!

What are you going to do about it? What should I do about it? You and I need to come out from among them. We need to set ourselves apart for the Lord. We must be sold out to the Lord, obey his voice in the Scriptures.

You and I, we are the Sons of God that must manifest God’s presence for the light of God to eradicate the darkness that is taking over our families, gatherings, and communities, and ….

I restrained myself from inferring that darkness has taken over The Church, because darkness CANNOT, but it is holding sway right now according to Isaiah 60:2 see, darkness covers the earth and thick darkness is over the peoples, but the Lord rises upon you and his glory appears over you.

Isaiah 60: 1 says “Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord rises upon you.

Romans 8:19 For the creation waits in eager expectation for the children of God to be revealed. 

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Fear! Do Not Be Afraid.

Mark 4:40 He said to his disciples, “Why are you so afraid? Do you still have no faith?”

Why are you Joan, so afraid? What are you afraid of? Do you still have no faith?

So I get to ask myself these questions! Why am I so afraid? Why am I so afraid? Oh Lord, Why am I so afraid? Do I really know why I am so afraid? What am I afraid of? What fear is it that has incapacitated me for so long? What fear has successfully reduced me to almost a shadow of myself?

Lord Jesus please speak to me! Father reveal to me this fear that has so much gripped me to the point of disobeying you, ignoring your prompting, operating beneath my stature, acting small, powerless, when the power that raised Christ from the dead is available for me and is actually within me?

What fear, Lord, can stand before The Blood? The blood of Jesus shed at Calvary speaks better than the blood of Abel. The blood of the new covenant! The blood shed for the remission of my sin and that of the whole world!

In answering these questions, So what next! What is it that I am afraid of? Something in my subconscious maybe! But then my Bible tells me that God has not given me the spirit of fear but of love, power and a sound mind2 Timothy 1:7

My Bible tells me that God’s goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life. Psalms 23:6. This means there is nothing to fear now or ever!

Therefore friends, regardless of the fear you have and anything that might come in the future, know that it is not ordained of God. Exercise your dominion mandate over whatever constitute fear in you. God has a daily instruction of “fear not” for you in the scriptures. READ YOUR BIBLE

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!
