Remember No More

I have been contemplating on a revelation I received several years ago about the Blood of Jesus. I want to show you a different facet of the Blood that you may not have considered or thought about before. We have all heard that the Blood of Jesus will cleanse us from all unrighteousness and  that it can bring physical healing to our bodies. I want you to consider something else. All of us have things that we have had to overcome in this life, be it abuse, a death of a loved one, a painful divorce etc.  One of the tricks of the enemy is to bring back those painful memories. And for some, if you have not allowed God to heal those areas of your life they can become triggers for you.  God is always in the healing business. His promises to us are YES and AMEN. Anytime you have a wound in your soul it is imperative that you go to God to allow Him to heal this area.  These wounds are what keep people in cycles or patterns of behavior that they repeat over and over again. The devil loves to tr

Quick catch up!

Hey everyone! I know I made some of you angry with my last post. That is never my intent, however, I am compelled to tell you the truth. God has a purpose and a plan for each and every one of you. Fornication or sex outside of marriage only robs you of God's best! It does not make Him love you less, but it robs you of His blessings. It also keeps you from fulfilling the purpose. The very reason you are here on this earth. And it is SIN - Sin keeps you from God's presence. Some of you need to go to a Holy Ghost service and experience His presence!  Everything God put in his Word is for our benefit.  Let me ask you... what priority do you put on reading or listening to the Word? What priority do you put on prayer??  These two things are what will sustain you in this life.  Are you an active member in the body? Do you serve somewhere? Whoever decided that is okay for you to not attend church lied to you!  Church is where you are continually fed, but it was never supposed to b

And the Truth will set you free!! Part 1

I'm seeing a trend that is bothering me. It is in the aspect of Truth.  When did the truth become hate? When did it become no longer important?  Why are kids getting persecuted for talking about Jesus? Why is praying in schools now an issue? Why is there so much fornication in the body of Christ? Why is prayer an afterthought when we are in trouble when it is suppose to be a lifestyle? Today I'm going to address some issues and bring to light some items that have been covered in darkness. I realize this post may not make everyone happy, but Jesus did not make everyone happy so I think I'm okay.   Here are a few scriptures to lay a foundation, and I may mention a few more along the way. Ephesians 1:13-14 In him you also, when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation, and believed in him, were sealed with the promised Holy Spirit, who is the guarantee of our inheritance until we acquire possession of it, to the praise of his glory. Psalm 86:11 Teach me y

By His Stripes!

As many of you know, about five years I was diagnosed with gluten intolerance. Unfortunately, what I wasn't told was that the longer I went without gluten the more my body was poisoned by it. I did go gluten-free but since it is hidden in so many different forms, and with cross contamination, it became a real battle for me in eating. I found myself almost fearful eating out anymore. I had to be so careful. A bite of wheat or gluten could send me to bed for two days. It was frustrating! And more and more I started praying for God to deliver me. Back in November, we were at our home church in Atlanta. They were having camp meetings and I heard a fantastic sermon on healing. I've heard many sermons on healing but this was different. The speaker was Dr. Sandra Kennedy. I had never heard of her prior to this service. What I can tell you is that I received the Word that night that By His Stripes I was healed 2000 years ago! I believed the Word that she spoke.  It took me a we

He who is without sin - throw a stone at her first

Larry and I have been listening and reading the gospels over and over this year. I'm a very black and white person and I do not see many shades of gray, but I'm developing new eyes, eyes of compassion. I read things and I'm compelled to pray. My prayer this past year is that I want to see people as Jesus does. I'm a follower of End Time Headlines. I like to read about what is going on in the world. It grieves me most of the time, but what really grieves my heart is the way other believers turn on one another. In 2 Thessalonians 2:3 it says, " Let no one deceive you by any means; for that day (of Christ's return) will not come unless the falling away comes first..." Before Christ comes back the Bible talks about the great falling away in the body of Christ. And we are seeing that all over the world as denominations accept sin, and people turn from a holy lifestyle.  But even more troublesome is the way we behave when someone, or a church, or a denomination,

Is it the end??

Earthquakes, rumors of wars, economic downfalls, the stock market crashing - these are just a few of the many things talked about in the news today.  I hear people talking about stocking weapons and food and I hear the fear. The fear in their voices and it is almost overwhelming.  And for me it has been disheartening.  So much of what the bible talks about regarding the end time events we are seeing. So what do we do?? I've been praying for some time and I keep hearing the same message from the Lord. Have the heart of a champion! Don't fear! I've been praying over this word for some time now.  I'm sure when David faced Goliath he was scared. I'm sure when Daniel was in the Lion's den there was some fear. I think sometimes fear is a natural response when situations come. But the Word says to FEAR NOT ! This is not the time for us to cover our faces and hide our heads in the sand.  We can't sit down and watch the Goliath's in our nation rule and rain an

The Passing of a Dear Friend

I received a phone call informing me of the death of a sweet friend of mine in Atlanta. I was shocked when I heard the news as I had recently spoken with her about her coming to visit. She kept telling me she was jealous of what God was doing here in Cleveland and all that I was sharing with her. Kathy always wanted to be in the presence of Jesus. She was a faithful attendee at early morning prayer and at most services at World Harvest. She loved to be in God's glory all the time. And now she is with Him and in His glory. For to be absent in body is to be present with the Lord. 2 Cor. 5:8 In fact, we had a great talk recently. She and I were both at the church waiting on the arrival of Larry, and her daughter Gabby. Both attended the Encounter conference and she was anxiously awaiting her daughter's arrival. She was excited to hear all that God had done in her daughter's life during the past few days. I was able to share some of what I knew and she told me she was next. S
