Have you ever been told that once a person “believes in Jesus” that the Holy Spirit will come and live inside that person?

Doesn’t this cause us to also believe that our own actions are causing God to do something?

Is that the way God works?  Or is it the other way around?

What does scripture say?  Do we cause the Holy Spirit to act or does God?

Let’s look at Acts 10:45 in the original words and see.Continue reading

Is the translated Bible a "book of magic"?

Is the translated Bible a “book of magic”?

The following verse has fascinated me since I first read it.

Acts19_19The original words say:

Enough YET of-the-ones THE about-acts practicing together-carry THE SCROLLS they-down-burned in-view of-all and they-together-pebble the values of-them and they-found of-silver MYRIADS(10,000) FIVE Acts 19:19 Westminster-Leningrad Codex

The King James version says:Continue reading

Do you ever wonder what it would look like if we could peek under the veil of the spirit?  Why is their a veil anyway?

Are we his “woman” with our “face” (mind) covered?

The words of Jesus are coming to mind.

At that time Jesus said, “I praise You, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that You have hidden these things from the wise and intelligent and have revealed them to infants Matt 11:25

What in the world is Jesus talking about?

Who are the “wise and intelligent”?  Are they the “crafty”?

Also, who are the “infants”?  Surely, a baby can’t understand ways of God, can it?

Please allow me to point a little to what I am seeing in this powerful “undercover” work.Continue reading

Is God really making all things new?

Is God really making all things new?  Even right now?

Do you ever wonder what is going on right now all around us spiritually? 

What is God “up to” even right now as we watch TV with our family or go to work?

Many people say they “want to know what God is doing right now” or they “wish they knew what God wants them to do“.   “I just want God to be real to me right now in my everyday life”, is often heard.

Do they really want that?

Or is that something they just say in order to be perceived as pious or “religious”?

Well, let’s test that a bit. I am going to share what God has revealed to me that has allowed me to see RIGHT now what he is doing.

First, please prepare yourself.Continue reading

Does God really live in our heart or not?

Does God really live in our heart or is that something we just say?

I have been going through a tough and challenging experience that maybe you have as well if you are a “person of faith”.

For some crazy, insane reason, I actually believe the Lord is living inside me.

Is this a crazy thought or maybe even “blasphemy” as many “Christians” are telling me in not so nice words?

Well, what are we told to do by Christians when they first approach us?Continue reading

Today, I find myself back in Genesis 2 and 3 reviewing the “garden scene”.  I see so many amazing things edenoccurring there that I hope will be “eye opening” to you.

These are things that I suspect you haven’t heard but I believe are very good.  I pray it will give you a WHOLE new inspiring view of what is often called “the fall of man” and a whole new outlook on mankind and even yourself.  I know it has dramatically changed my view of who I am.

Before we do this, let’s ask the following question.

What are the parts of a man?  What is a human made of?Continue reading

Have you ever played the game called “find the differences” in a picture?

Well, ask yourself the question… “How old was Ahazaih when he became King”?

Then, look at these two verses, first one from 2 Chronicles 2:22 and the second from 2 Kings 8:26.

2Chron22_2

 

2Kings826

See any differences?

If you do and wonder what is going on, ask the Lord and listen.  He will reveal powerful and amazing things to you from within your own heart and mind.  Far beyond what you can ask or even imagine.  Eph 3:20

God bless.

 

Here is something that I pray will really encourage you today.  Check out this verse in it’s original words and consider this question.

Who is it that God is telling us that practices good or evil?

The truth is indeed, VERY good my friend.  May we both hear his words of truth and life in our heart, mind today.

 

Today, I am asking the question: Should we believe man or God?

Man tells us this (is what God said) in Ezekiel 14:21:

For thus saith the Lord GOD; How much more when I send my four sore judgments upon Jerusalem, the sword, and the famine, and the noisome beast, and the pestilence, to cut off from it man and beast? Ezekiel 14:21 KJV

or

“For this is what the Sovereign LORD says: How much worse will it be when I send against Jerusalem my four dreadful judgments–sword and famine and wild beasts and plague–to kill its men and their animals! Ezekiel 14:21 NIV

Let’s see the actual original Hebrew words God gave us and read them ourselves directly.  Continue reading
