DO YOU KNOW THAT GOD LOVES YOU.  HE DOES....HE TOLD ME JUST THIS MORNING.  YOU DON'T THINK GOD TALKS TO ME?  JUST LOOK..  "JOHN 15:9 As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love."  


HE IS NOT JUST TALKING TO ME, HE IS TALKING TO ALL OF US.  WE JUST HAVE TO GET INTO HIS WORD AND LISTEN. WE HAVE NO IDEA JUST HOW GREAT THAT LOVE IS.  OUR LITTLE PEANUT BRAINS CAN'T THINK THAT BIG.  AS THE FATHER HAS LOVED JESUS, SO HAS JESUS LOVED US.....WOW!!!  


FOR YOU WHO DON'T READ YOUR BIBLE EVERY MORNING, SEE WHAT YOU ARE MISSING.  HOW GREAT IT FEELS TO KNOW THAT SOMEONE LOVES US SO MUCH.  I DON'T KNOW ABOUT YOU BUT THAT MAKES ME FEEL WONDERFUL.  AND, HE ONLY WANTS GOOD THINGS FOR US.  SEE WHAT HE SAYS IN JEREMIAH 29:11-13 "For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you. And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your hear."  THOUGHTS OF PEACE AND TO GIVE US AN EXPECTED END.  AND SOME OF YOU THOUGHT HE DIDN'T EVEN THINK ABOUT YOU. HE THINKS ABOUT US ALL THE TIME AND TELLS US EVERY DAY THAT HE LOVES US...IF WE WILL JUST LISTEN.  WILL YOU LISTEN? 


GOD BLESS YOU ALL.

"REST IN HIS LOVE" BY ANDREW WOMMACK

"REST IN HIS LOVE" BY ANDREW WOMMACK
John 5:16, "And therefore did the Jews persecute Jesus, and sought to slay him because he had done these things on the sabbath day."

JOHN 5:16-27


The Sabbath was first mentioned in Scripture in Exodus 16, when the Lord started miraculously providing the children of Israel with manna in the wilderness. The Israelites were commanded to gather twice as much manna on the sixth day because God would not provide any on the seventh day. Shortly after this, the Lord commanded the observance of the Sabbath day in the ten commandments that were communicated to Moses on Mt. Sinai on the two tablets of stone (Ex. 20:8-11). In this command, God connected this Sabbath day with the rest that He took on the seventh day of creation.

As revealed in Colossians 2:16-17, the Sabbath was symbolic. According to Exodus 23:12, one of the purposes of the Sabbath was to give man and his animals one day of physical rest each week. Today's medical science has proven that our bodies need at least one day of rest each week to function at our peak. Deuteronomy 5:15, also clearly states that the Sabbath was to serve as a reminder to the Jews that they had been slaves in Egypt and were delivered from bondage, not by their own efforts, but by the supernatural power of God. However, in the New Testament, there is an even clearer purpose of the Sabbath stated. In Colossians 2:16-17, Paul reveals that the Sabbath was only a shadow of things to come and is now fulfilled in Christ. Hebrews 4:1-11, talks about a Sabbath rest that is available to, but not necessarily functional in, all New Testament believers. This New Testament Sabbath rest is simply a relationship with God in which we have ceased from doing things by our own efforts and are letting God work through us (Gal. 2:20; Heb. 4:10).

The Sabbath is not a day, but rather a relationship with God through Jesus. Rest in His love and let Him use you today.

"JESUS IS THINKING ABOUT YOU" BY DAVID MCMILLEN

"JESUS IS THINKING ABOUT YOU" BY DAVID MCMILLEN

ISN'T IT GREAT TO KNOW THAT THE LORD HAS THOUGHTS OF PEACE TOWARD US. THAT IS WHAT JEREMIAH 29:11 SAYS "For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end." JUST TO THINK THAT THE GOD OF THIS WHOLE UNIVERSE, THE ONE WHO CREATED US AND EVERYTHING, THINKS ABOUT US.  WHEN READING THIS WE HAVE TO REALIZE THIS PROPHESY WAS HUNDREDS OF YEARS BEFORE JESUS, OUR LORD, WAS EVEN BORN.  I WOULD ASSUME THAT THE "EXPECTED END" WOULD BE OUR SALVATION AND OUR BEING ABLE TO LIVE WITH HIM FOREVER. THAT IS AN "EXPECTED END" I AM GOING TO ENJOY.




IN THE NEXT TWO VERSES, 12 AND 13, HE TALKS ABOUT US PRAYING TO HIM AND FINDING HIM WHEN WE SEARCH WITH ALL OUR HEARTS, "Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you. And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart."  WE CAN'T JUST PLAY AT BEING CHRISTIANS.  WE ALL HAVE A JOB TO DO AND THAT IS TO GO INTO ALL THE WORLD AND PREACH THE GOSPEL.  MARK 16:15 "Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation."  THAT "GOOD NEWS" IS THE GOSPEL OF JESUS.


NOW YOUR "ALL THE WORLD" CAN BE RIGHT THERE WHERE YOU LIVE.  YOUR FAMILY, FRIENDS AND NEIGHBORS NEED TO HEAR THE GOSPEL.  YOU JUST MIGHT BE THAT PERSON THE BIBLE IS TALKING ABOUT WHEN IT IS TALKING ABOUT THE LABORERS BEING FEW.  THERE MIGHT BE JUST A FEW OF US BUT WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE.  WITH GOD ON OUR SIDE, THERE IS NOTHING WE CAN'T DO.  HE DOESN'T KNOW THE WORD IMPOSSIBLE.


BE A LABORER TODAY AND TELL SOMEONE ABOUT JESUS.  HE IS THINKING ABOUT US AND WE SHOULD BE THINKING ABOUT HIM AND TELLING OUR "ALL THE WORLD" ABOUT HIM AND HOW MUCH HE LOVES US.  WON'T YOU DO THAT TODAY FOR HIM? 


GOD BLESS YOU ALL.



"NATURALLY HOLY" BY ANDREW WOMMACK


By DAVID A. MCMILLEN, 2019-03-20
"NATURALLY HOLY" BY ANDREW WOMMACK
John 5:14, "Afterward Jesus findeth him in the temple, and said unto him, Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee."

JOHN 5:1-15


In saying this, Jesus shows that sin causes the tragedies that come into our lives. The reason for holiness in the life of the believer is that when we obey sin, we yield ourselves to Satan, the author of that sin. Yielding to sin is yielding to a person - Satan. God doesn't impute the sin to us but the devil does. Our actions either release the power of Satan or the power of God in us.

Although God is not imputing our sins unto us, we cannot afford the luxury of sin because it allows Satan to have access to us. When a Christian sins and allows the devil opportunity to produce his death in their life, the way to stop it is to confess the sin, and God who is faithful and just, will take the forgiveness that is already present in our born again spirit and release it in our flesh. This removes Satan and his strongholds.

The sins of a Christian don't make him a sinner any more than the righteous acts of a sinner make him righteous. Sin is a very deadly thing that even Christians should avoid at all costs, but it does not determine our standing with the Lord. A person who is born again is not "in" the flesh even though he may walk "after" the flesh.

What is the motive for living a separated life? We live a separated life because our nature has been changed. We were darkness, now we are light (Eph. 5:8). Many people argue for holiness in order to obtain relationship with God. We need to live holy lives because of the relationship that we already have. It's the nature of a Christian to walk in the light and not in darkness. If Christians were rightly informed of who they are and what they have in Christ, holiness would just naturally flow out of them. It's their nature. It's our nature.

"ASK FOR YOUR MIRACLE" BY DAVID MCMILLEN


By DAVID A. MCMILLEN, 2019-03-19
"ASK FOR YOUR MIRACLE" BY DAVID MCMILLEN





ASK FOR YOUR MIRACLE


HAVE YOU EVER BEEN ASKED IF THE MIRACLES IN THE BIBLE ARE REALLY TRUE?  I KNOW THEY ARE TO BE TAKEN LITERALLY JUST LIKE ALL SCRIPTURE SHOULD BE.  NOW THERE ARE SOME EXAMPLES OF SYMBOLISM LIKE IN PSALM 17:8 WHERE DAVID SAYS TO GOD, "Keep me as the apple of the eye, hide me under the shadow of thy wings".  WE ARE NOT REALLY APPLES IN GOD'S EYES AND I DON'T BELIEVE GOD HAS WINGS BUT THE MIRACLES ARE NOT SYMBOLIC AND THEY SERVE A PURPOSE TO DO SOMETHING THAT COULD NOT BE DONE IN ANY OTHER WAY.



TO START THINGS OFF, LET'S LOOK AT THE PLAGUES ON EGYPT.  IF THE PLAGUES NEVER HAPPENED, WHY WOULD PHARAOH LET THE ISRAELITES GO?  HOW ABOUT THE PARTING OF THE RED SEA WHERE PHARAOH AND A LOT OF HIS ARMY DROWNED?  IF THIS DID NOT HAPPEN, DID THE ISRAELITES REALLY LEAVE EGYPT?  DID PHARAOH'S ARMY REALLY FOLLOW THEM AND IF SO, HOW DID THE ISRAELITES ESCAPE?  MORE QUESTIONS ARE CAUSED BY NOT BELIEVING THE MIRACLES REALLY HAPPENED.  THERE ARE PEOPLE TRYING TO DISPROVE THE BIBLE ALL THE TIME AND IT SEEMS THAT ALL THEY ARE DOING IS PROVING THE BIBLE IS REAL AND TRUE.


LET'S LOOK AT ALL THOSE PEOPLE FOLLOWING JESUS.  IF IT WASN'T FOR SOME OF THE MIRACLES HE PERFORMED, MANY OF THE PEOPLE WOULD NOT HAVE FOLLOWED HIM.  IN THE MIRACLE OF THE LOAVES AND FISHES, JESUS SAID IT WAS NOT THE MIRACLE THAT MADE THE PEOPLE FOLLOW HIM. HOWEVER, IF IT WAS NOT FOR THE MIRACLES THERE WOULD HAVE NOT BEEN ANYTHING TO FEED THE FOUR AND FIVE THOUSANDS.  LOOK WHAT JESUS SAID IN JOHN 6:26 "Verily, verily, I say unto you, Ye seek me, not because ye saw the miracles, but because ye did eat of the loaves, and were filled."


JESUS USED MIRACLES TO SHOW THE PEOPLE HE WAS WHO HE SAID HE WAS.  IF HE HAD NOT BEEN THE SON OF GOD, THEN HOW DID HE HEAL ALL THOSE PEOPLE, TURN WATER INTO WINE, CALM THE SEAS, RAISE THE DEAD AND ENDURE THE CROSS FOR US?  DON'T BELIEVE THAT MIRACLES HAVE PASSED AWAY EITHER.  IF YOU NEED A MIRACLE, PRAY AND ASK GOD FOR IT, HAVING FAITH AND BELIEVING WITH ALL YOUR HEART THAT YOU SHALL HAVE IT.  THIS IS WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS AND I KNOW THE BIBLE IS TRUE.  GET YOUR MIRACLE TODAY. 


GOD BLESS YOU ALL.



"SOMETHING NEW" BY ANDREW WOMMACK


By DAVID A. MCMILLEN, 2019-03-19
"SOMETHING NEW" BY ANDREW WOMMACK
Luke 5:36-37, "And he spake a parable unto them; No man putteth a piece of a new garment upon an old; if otherwise, then both the new maketh a rent, and the piece that was taken out of the new agreeth not with the old. And no man putteth new wine into old bottles; else the new wine will burst the bottles, and be spilled, and the bottles shall perish."

MATTHEW 9:11-17, MARK 2:16-22, LUKE 5:30-39


These two parables are in response to the scribes' and Pharisees' criticism (v. 30) and the question from John's disciples about why Jesus didn't act according to their religious traditions and expectations (Mt. 9:14; Mk. 2:18). The gist of these parables was to show that Jesus came to do a new thing that would not mix with the old covenant ways that were familiar to people (Isa. 43:18-19; Jer. 31:31-34; Heb. 8:7-13).

A new cloth sown on an old garment in Jesus' day would shrink the first time it was washed. Then it would tear away from the old garment that had already shrunk, making the hole worse. This illustrates that Jesus did not come to patch up the old Mosaic covenant, but to replace it (Heb. 7:18-19).

Also, new wine (not yet fermented) had to be put into new or reconditioned wineskins to allow for the expansion of gases within the skin as the result of the fermentation process. Otherwise, an old wineskin that had already been stretched by use would simply burst and all the wine would run out. The Old Testament laws could never stretch enough to accommodate the New Testament truths of mercy and grace (Heb. 10:1-10). Jesus set us free from the judgment of the Old Testament laws (Rom. 6:14; 7:1-4; 8:2; 10:3-4; Gal. 3:12-14, 23-24; 5:4; Phil. 3:9).

These religious scribes and Pharisees (Lk. 5:30) were making the terrible mistake of trusting in their own efforts to produce their right standing (righteousness) with God. Jesus did not come to accept our sacrificial acts, but to make Himself a sacrifice for our sins. He did all this to give us new life in Him. Thank Him for His grace today.

"YOU CAN BE HEALED OF ADDITIONS" BY DAVID MCMILLEN


By DAVID A. MCMILLEN, 2019-03-18
"YOU CAN BE HEALED OF ADDITIONS" BY DAVID MCMILLEN

ARE YOU AN ADDICT?  I WAS, AND THE FIRST STEP TO BEING HEALED IS ADMITTING IT.  YES, I SAID HEALED.  IT IS A SICKNESS AND THESE DAYS THEY HAVE MEDICINE TO HELP WITH MOST ADDICTIONS. HOWEVER, THERE IS A BETTER WAY AND THAT IS IN JESUS.




I HAVE WRITTEN ABOUT THIS BEFORE SO MOST OF YOU KNOW THAT I WAS AN ALCOHOLIC AND THE LORD HEALED ME ONE NIGHT AT A HOME CHURCH MEETING.  I WON'T GO INTO ALL THE DETAILS AGAIN, ALTHOUGH IT IS A GREAT TESTIMONY. LET ME JUST SAY THAT I WENT FROM ALMOST GOING INTO DTs, WHEN THE MEETING STARTED, TO THEM LAYING HANDS ON ME AND PRAYING AND JESUS HEALING ME. I EVEN STAYED AND HAD COFFEE AND DONUTS AND WAS TOTALLY AT PEACE AFTER THE MEETING.  AFTER THAT NIGHT IT WAS LIKE I HAD NEVER EVER HAD A DRINK.  I PROMISED GOD THAT NIGHT I WOULD NEVER DRINK AGAIN, AND I HAVEN'T, AND IT HAS BEEN OVER 40 YEARS NOW.  THANK YOU JESUS.




I WAS ALSO A SMOKER AND THE LORD HEALED ME OF THAT TOO.  I WAS COMING OUT OF OCALA, FL., ON MY JOB, OVER 25 YEARS AGO AND I FELT THE LORD ASKED ME, NOT OUT LOUD BUT IN MY SPIRIT, WHY DID I SMOKE.  I TOLD HIM THAT I DIDN'T KNOW BUT WITH HIS HELP I WOULD QUIT.  I KNEW RIGHT THEN THAT I WAS HEALED AND I HAVE NOT HAD A CIGARETTE OR CIGAR SINCE AND I NEVER HAD THE FIRST WITHDRAWAL.



WITHOUT JESUS I COULD NEVER HAVE BEEN HEALED OF THESE ADDICTIONS.  I AM TELLING THIS IN HOPES THAT IT WILL HELP SOMEONE THAT IS HAVING THIS PROBLEM.  I KNOW WHAT YOU ARE GOING THROUGH AND I LOVE YOU AND WANT YOU HEALED.  I DON'T KNOW YOUR NAME BUT JESUS DOES AND I WILL BE PRAYING FOR YOU IN HIS NAME.  YOU JUST HAVE TO TRUST HIM, BY FAITH, THAT YOU ARE HEALED AND ACCEPT YOUR HEALING. HE SAID BY HIS STRIPES YOU ARE HEALED. 



GOD BLESS YOU ALL.


"LET CHRIST LIVE THROUGH US" BY ANDREW WOMMACK


By DAVID A. MCMILLEN, 2019-03-18
"LET CHRIST LIVE THROUGH US" BY ANDREW WOMMACK
Matthew 9:9, "And as Jesus passed forth from thence, he saw a man, named Matthew, sitting at the receipt of custom: and he saith unto him, Follow me. And he arose, and followed him."

MATTHEW 9:9-10, MARK 2:14-15, LUKE 5:27-29


To "follow" means to come or go after; move behind in the same direction; to come or go with; to accept the guidance or leadership of; to adhere to the cause or principles of; to be governed by; obey; comply with (Jn. 10:27-29; Rom. 10:9-10, 13).

When a person first comes to Jesus, it is impossible to know everything that following Jesus entails. No one, however, should be fearful of making a total commitment because of some imagined problem that may never come to pass. There should be a willingness to forsake everything to follow Jesus. Once we make that decision, then Christ begins to live through us and we find a strength that is not our own, equal to whatever test we may encounter (Gal. 2:20).

It is Christ living through us that is the secret of victorious Christian living. It is not us living for Jesus, but Jesus living through us. Failure to understand this simple truth is at the root of all legalism and the performance mentality. The law focuses on the outer man and tells it what it must do. Grace focuses on the inner man and tells it what is already done through Christ. Those who are focused on what they must do are under law. Those who are focused on what Christ has done for them are walking under grace.

Just as the life of a root is found in the soil, or a branch in the vine, or a fish in the sea, so the believer's true life is found to be in union with Christ. The Christian life is not just hard to live, it's impossible in our human strength. The only way to walk in victory is to let Christ live through us.

"WE ARE IN A WAR" BY DAVID MCMILLEN


By DAVID A. MCMILLEN, 2019-03-17
"WE ARE IN A WAR" BY DAVID MCMILLEN

I WANT TO TALK TO YOU THIS MORNING ABOUT WAR.  WE ARE IN A WAR AND THERE IS ONLY ONE WAY TO WIN.  2ND CORINTHIANS 10:4-5 SAY "For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds); Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ."




THIS IS A REALLY POWERFUL SCRIPTURE AND SAYS A GREAT DEAL.  WE SHOULD ALWAYS BE IN A WAR WITH SATAN; HOWEVER, OUR WEAPONS HAVE TO BE SPIRITUAL AND TO USE THEM WE MUST RELY ON HOLY SPIRIT.  THEN, AND ONLY THEN, CAN WE PULL DOWN SATAN'S STRONGHOLDS.  THOSE STRONGHOLDS MIGHT BE HIM HINDERING ONE, OR MORE, OF YOUR CHILDREN FROM BEING SAVED.  IT COULD BE YOU NOT RECEIVING YOUR HEALING, OR HELP WITH YOUR FINANCES OR EVEN KEEPING YOU FROM HAVING PEACE.  WE CAN DEFEAT SATAN BUT WE JUST HAVE TO USE THE RIGHT WEAPONS.



SINCE THE BIBLE, GOD'S WORD, IS INSPIRED BY HOLY SPIRIT, IT IS A POWERFUL WEAPON TO USE.  JESUS USED IT IN DEFEATING SATAN WHEN HE WAS BEING TEMPTED.  WHEN SATAN WOULD TEMPT HIM, JESUS WOULD SAY "IT IS WRITTEN" AND WOULD QUOTE THE SCRIPTURE THAT APPLIED. THAT WOULD STOP SATAN IN HIS TRACKS.  WE CAN DO THE SAME THING IF WE STUDY GOD'S WORD.  WE JUST HAVE TO BELIEVE AND HAVE FAITH THAT GOD'S WORD IS TRUE AND WILL WORK FOR US.  THEN IS WHEN IT BECOMES A WEAPON FOR US.



WE MUST CAST DOWN ALL IMAGINATIONS THAT EXALTS ITSELF AGAINST GOD'S KNOWLEDGE.  THIS IS IN THE MIND.  SATAN WILL PUT THINGS IN FRONT OF US TO TEMPT US AND THOUGHTS WILL COME INTO OUR MINDS THAT SHOULDN'T BE THERE.   WE HAVE TO GET RID OF THOSE THOUGHTS BEFORE THEY TAKE ROOT AND WE SIN.  I KNOW YOU ALL GET TIRED OF ME SAYING THIS BUT IT IS SO TRUE.  YOU CAN'T BE TEMPTED BY SOMETHING YOU DON'T THINK ABOUT.



PHILIPPIANS 4:8 GIVES US SOME GREAT INSTRUCTIONS AND I QUOTE IT HERE "Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things." THINKING ON THESE WILL NOT ALLOW US TO THINK OF THINGS THAT ARE BAD.  I LIKE THE NEXT VERSE ALSO AND I WILL QUOTE IT ALSO, "Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you." I DON'T KNOW ABOUT YOU BUT I WANT THE GOD OF PEACE TO BE WITH ME.



GOD BLESS YOU ALL.


"FAITH THAT IS SEEN" BY ANDREW WOMMACM


By DAVID A. MCMILLEN, 2019-03-17
"FAITH THAT IS SEEN" BY ANDREW WOMMACM
Mark 2:5, "When Jesus saw their faith, he said unto the sick of the palsy, Son, thy sins be forgiven thee."

MATTHEW 9: 1-8, MARK 2: 1-12, LUKE 5: 17-26


Faith can be seen. Just as Jesus explained to Nicodemus in John 3:8, faith is like the wind. Faith itself is invisible, but saving faith is always accompanied by corresponding actions which can be seen (Jas. 2:17-26).

It was not only the faith of the paralytic that Jesus saw, but also that of his four friends (Mk. 2:3). This demonstrates the effect our intercession in faith can have upon others. Jesus saw their faith. However, although our faith released on behalf of others is powerful, it is not a substitute for their faith. It is simply a help. The person who is to receive the miracle must have some degree of faith, also. Even Jesus could not produce healing in those who would not believe (Mk. 6:5-6). In this instance, it is evident that the paralytic himself also had faith because he was not resistant to the four who brought him; and he got up and obeyed Jesus' command (v. 7) without having to be helped.

Why did Jesus minister forgiveness of sins to this man instead of meeting the obvious need he had of healing? God is more concerned with the spiritual health of a man than his physical health. Or, Jesus, through a word of knowledge, may have perceived that the real heart-cry of this man was to be reconciled to God. In some instances (not all - Jn. 9:2-3), sickness was a direct result of sin. Therefore, Jesus would be dealing with the very root of the paralysis. Whether or not this man's paralysis was a direct result of sin, sin in our life (that has not been forgiven) will allow Satan to keep us in his bondage. Through Jesus' act of forgiving this man's sins, the paralytic was free to receive all the blessings of God, which certainly included healing.

The point Jesus is making is that both forgiveness of sins and the healing of the paralytic are humanly impossible. If Jesus could do one of these things, He could do the other. He then healed the paralytic showing that He did, indeed, have the authority to forgive sins. In Jesus' day, the people were more inclined to accept His willingness to heal than they were to accept His forgiveness of sins without the keeping of the law. Today, the church world basically accepts forgiveness of sins, but doubts His willingness to heal. They were never meant to be separated. Believe and receive all God has for you today.
