Who are we?

I don't think that a lot of Christians really understand exactly what we have done when we accepted Jesus as our Savior.

We became the children of God which means we became family. I wonder if most people on earth would quit loving thier earthly dad just because he made a boo-boo. I don't think so, so why would we not understand that to Love our Father in Heaven (who is the only true good and perfect) unconditionally is the most improtant thing we could ever do on earth? Loving God for who he is; Our Father, not what he can do which is everything.

The most unpleasant thing to say in the English language. Doesn't bother me but it botheres the crap out of a lot of other. Hence the reason they don't get along with me. But I am learning to ignore them.

No. I am going to use the right washer for the sink and I am not going to replace the whole water supply when it is not a problem. So you can run off like a spoiled rotten child and pout. Why don't y'all just shoot yourselves because I will tell the truth and I will endeavor to do the job right no matter what stupid ideas y'all come up with.

No! I will not be you, I will be me. No I will not be a good ol boy . You good ol boys have probably got more people killed than Carters got liver pills. So No! Go away!

I just had the most unusual message left on our answering machine. The woman asked if I did miracles?

I have witnessed miracles of men changing and a nation shifting course to the better and have laid my hands on people and watched their health improve. Have prayed for people who had cancer and within a week heard back that the cancer was completely gone. Disappeared.
I have seen the miracle of a baby that I was given no hope of living and then told to lay my hand on and bless in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost after which a few minutes later I told the Dr. To do as he thought best and that I had the faith that he would be fine. Not only did live but lives and does the things that young men do (sports ect.). I have stood in an auditorium while another prayed for healing of those in the audience to be healed and believed in faith that God would do so and had my lower back be healed. (our family has a congenital lower back problem and mine was beginning to flare up).

Have I ever had the opportunity to heal a withered mans hand? No, but if it be God's will that a day should present one to me I believe that God would heal them.

The one thing that people must remember concerning miracles of any kind are that it is their own faith in God create them . Not mine. That God can heal them is a fact but if an individual does not have the faith to be healed by God they will not be healed. Also consider if you are saved by Jesus and that God is in control that our worries concerning life and death are over. That God is now in control of our life and we serve and live at his pleasure not our own. We will not live one second beyond what is required of us nor one second short. We can rest and trust that God will take care of us in his timing not ours.

That in our lives we will be who we are and experience all that we experience both the good and the evil the gains and the losses as individuals before God as he sees fit not necessarily what we think is right, but that is the way it is.

The voice of God

This is my comment to those people that hear a voice in their head they credit as God's.


The apostle Peter warns us to test the spirits whether they be of God or not and that no spirit that is not of God can admit that Jesus is The Messiah unless they are of God.

Exo 19:18 And mount Sinai was altogether on a smoke, because, the LORD descended upon it in fire: and the smoke thereof ascended as the smoke of a furnace, and the whole mount quaked greatly.

When God makes his presence known to men it becomes obvious, things begin to shake, quake, lite up or burn.

Exo 3:2 And the angel of the LORD appeared unto him in a flame of fire out of the midst, of a bush: and he looked, and, behold, the bush burned with fire, and the bush was not consumed.

1Ki 19:11 And he said, Go forth, and stand upon the mount before the LORD. And, behold, the LORD passed by, and a great and strong wind rent the mountains, and broke in pieces the rocks before the LORD; but the LORD was not in the wind: and after the wind an earthquake; but the LORD was not in the earthquake:

Luk 2:9 And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.

Mat 28:2 And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it.

Joh 12:28 Father, glorify thy name. Then came there a voice from heaven, saying, I have both glorified it, and will glorify it again. Joh 12:29 The people therefore, that stood by, and heard it, said that it thundered: others said, An angel spake to him. Joh 12:30 Jesus answered and said, This voice came not because of me, but for your sakes.

Though God makes his presence known to men in other ways by his spirit that works in us and about us using circumstance and by prayer fulfilling our prescient prayers, and prescient words, We have not necessarily heard the direct voice of God because something that came to us in a secret voice came true.

I will not discount that everything that men consider voices external to themselves yet secret to others as not messengers but do not count that these voices are messengers of the most high God. The most high god would send messengers to have us do good unto men not evil. To deliver messages of repentance and warnings of destruction both small and great for not repenting, that is to change ones mind concerning doing evil.

Also remember that in the end all things will have begun and ended with God hence the reason that Jesus told John in the vision of revelations to let them that are righteous be righteous still and those that are evil let them be evil still. That also does not relinquish Jesus command to preach repentance, nor to the old testament writings concerning our responsibility to warn the wicked to repent of their ways and sin no more lest they die in thier sin and then thier blood would be required of us.
