About

I AM AN 80 YEAR OLD MALE, BORN AGAIN, CHRISTIAN WITH A LOVE FOR JESUS. I DO NOT GET OUT MUCH ANYMORE BUT FIND THAT TELLING PEOPLE ABOUT THE LOVE JESUS HAS FOR THEM IS NOT ONLY WHAT WE ARE SUPPOSED TO DO BUT SOMETHING THAT THE WORLD NEEDS.

"REALLY BELIEVING IN GOD'S WORD" BY DAVID MCMILLEN


By DAVID A. MCMILLEN, 2019-02-17
"REALLY BELIEVING IN GOD'S WORD" BY DAVID MCMILLEN

WILL YOU AGREE WITH ME THAT OUR FINANCES WILL INCREASE AND WE WILL HAVE NO MORE MONEY PROBLEMS?  WILL YOU AGREE WITH ME THAT WE, AND OUR FAMILIES, WILL BE HEALTHY?  WILL YOU AGREE WITH ME THAT OUR CHILDREN WILL BE SAVED?




I AM SURE THAT SOME OF YOU ARE ASKING FOR ONE OR ALL OF THESE THINGS AND SO AM I.  I WILL AGREE WITH EVERYONE OF YOU FOR THESE.  I WILL DO THIS BECAUSE OF WHAT JESUS SAYS IN MATTHEW 18:19 WHICH IS "That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven." IF THERE IS SOMETHING ELSE YOU ARE ASKING FOR, GET WITH YOUR SPOUSE OR PRAYER PARTNER AND AGREE THAT GOD WILL DO IT FOR YOU. THIS IS WHAT JESUS SAID AND AS YOU KNOW, HE DOESN'T LIE.




I DON'T TAKE HIS PROMISES LIGHTLY.  I KNOW HE IS FAITHFUL TO DO WHAT HE SAYS HE WILL DO AND WE HAVE TO BE FAITHFUL ALSO TO DO WHAT HE SAYS.  IT WORKS BOTH WAYS.  HE LOVES US AND DOES NOT WANT US TO BE WORRYING ABOUT, OR WANT, ANYTHING.  WE SHOULD BE DOING WHAT IT SAYS IN 1ST PETER 5:7 BY "Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you."  IF HE SAYS HE WILL TAKE CARE OF ALL THESE THINGS, THEN WHY WORRY?  TRUST, BELIEVE, HAVE FAITH, PRAISE HIM AND THANK HIM.  THAT IS ALL HE WANTS. 



GOD BLESS YOU ALL.


"THE CHOSEN ONES" BY ANDREW WOMMACK


By DAVID A. MCMILLEN, 2019-02-17
"THE CHOSEN ONES" BY ANDREW WOMMACK
Mark 1:16, "Now as he walked by the sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and Andrew his brother casting a net into the sea: for they were fishers."

MT. 4:13-22; MK. 1:16-20; LK. 5:27; JN. 5:38


Jesus never chose an apostle from among the religious system. Every one of his twelve disciples were men that He chose from the secular world. It wasn't because God didn't have faith in those who were religious. It's just that most of those who were part of the religious system didn't have any faith in God.

One of the most common mistakes religious people make is to put faith in themselves. They think God will use them because of their great holiness or special abilities.

Paul said, "But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, [yea], and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are" (1 Cor. 1:27-28).

People who recognize their own inabilities are of necessity more dependent on God. That is the way God wants it. The Lord is constantly searching for someone who recognizes they are nothing so He can do something through them (2 Ch. 16:9).

Instead of thinking of your responsibilities, just respond to His ability.

"THE LAW" BY DAVID MCMILLEN


By DAVID A. MCMILLEN, 2019-02-16
"THE LAW" BY DAVID MCMILLEN

I WAS READING 1ST JOHN 2:2-3 THIS MORNING AND WONDERED IF ANYONE WAS HAVING PROBLEMS UNDERSTANDING THESE TWO VERSES.  THE VERSES READS AS FOLLOWS, "Now by this we know that we know Him, if we keep His commandments. He who say, "I know Him," and does not keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him".  I HAD TO REMIND MYSELF THAT JOHN WAS TALKING TO THE JEWS WHO WERE UNDER THE LAW OF MOSES. THERE WERE HUNDREDS OF LAWS THAT PERTAINED TO JUST ABOUT EVERY ASPECT OF THE JEWISH LIFE INCLUDING THE TEN COMMANDMENTS WHICH IS CALLED THE LAW.





SINCE JESUS WENT TO THE CROSS FOR US, WE HAVE BEEN REDEEMED FROM THE CURSE OF THE LAW.  LOOK AT GALATIANS 3:13 WHERE IT SAYS "Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree,"  WE, AS CHRISTIANS, ARE UNDER GRACE, NOT THE LAW, FOR IT SAYS IN EPHESIANS 2:5 THAT "Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)"



NOW DON'T GET ME WRONG, THE TEN COMMANDMENTS ARE GOOD AND WE SHOULD TRY TO OBEY THEM BUT THEY WERE GIVEN TO SHOW MANKIND THAT THEY NEEDED A SAVIOR. PAUL PUTS IT THIS WAY IN ROMANS 7:7 WHERE HE SAYS "What shall we say then? Is the law sin? God forbid. Nay, I had not known sin, but by the law: for I had not known lust, except the law had said, Thou shalt not covet." HE ALSO SAID IN ROMANS 5:13 For until the law sin was in the world: but sin is not imputed when there is no law.



JUST REMEMBER THIS, WE ALL SHOULD LIVE AS HOLY AS WE CAN BUT NONE OF US CAN COME CLOSE TO LIVING A SINLESS LIFE. THAT IS WHY WE NEEDED JESUS.  JOHN 1:17 PUTS IT THIS WAY "For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ."  LIKE I SAID, THE TEN COMMANDMENTS ARE GOOD BUT KEEPING THEM WILL NOT GET YOU SAVED.  THERE IS ONLY ONE WAY TO THE FATHER AND THAT IS THROUGH JESUS. 



GOD BLESS YOU ALL.


"FAMILIARITY BREEDS CONTEMPT" BY ANDREW WOMMACK


By DAVID A. MCMILLEN, 2019-02-16
Luke 4:24, "And he said, Verily I say unto you, No prophet is accepted in his own country."

LUKE 4:16-30


A modern day equivalent of this verse is "familiarity breeds contempt." Those who know the most about us also know more of our faults than anyone else. As a general rule, our weaknesses will blind most people to our strengths.

However, in the case of Jesus, there were no faults or failures to bias these people. In this instance, the problem stemmed from the people's lack of perception. They knew Jesus better than most in the flesh, but they had failed to see who He was in the Spirit.

Jesus was God in all His power and majesty, yet He was clothed in flesh --a human in every respect (1 Tim. 3:16; Heb. 1:3). These people looked on Jesus' outward appearance and failed to see God within (1 Sam. 16:7).

Likewise, we fail to see the potential in others and even in ourselves because of our preoccupation with the outward appearance and actions. But within every born again person is a new creation which is waiting to be released (2 Cor. 5:17). All it takes is someone who believes.

Today look beyond the exterior in yourself and others and help bring into reality what we can be in Christ.

"STANDING ON GOD'S PROMISES" BY DAVID MCMILLEN


By DAVID A. MCMILLEN, 2019-02-15
"STANDING ON GOD'S PROMISES"  BY DAVID MCMILLEN

HAVE YOU BEEN STANDING FOR SOMETHING FOR A LONG TIME?  IT MIGHT BE THE SALVATION OF YOUR CHILDREN OR SPOUSE OR PARENTS OR IT COULD BE THAT YOUR HOUSE WOULD BE PAID OFF OR THAT YOU WOULD FIND A GOOD JOB OR JUST ANYTHING.  WHEN YOU PRAY, ACCORDING TO GOD'S WORD, AND BELIEVE YOU HAVE RECEIVED IT, JESUS SAYS THAT YOU SHALL HAVE IT. 




SOME THINGS I HAVE PRAYED FOR HAVE COME RIGHT AWAY AND THEN I AM STANDING FOR THINGS THAT HAVE BEEN A LONG TIME COMING.  THE GOOD THING ABOUT STANDING AND BELIEVING IS THAT YOU KNOW THAT YOU "SHALL" HAVE IT.  THAT IS GOD'S PROMISE IN HIS WORD AND IF IT WASN'T TRUE, HE WOULD NOT HAVE PUT IT IN THERE.  THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IS NOT TO TAKE YOUR EYES OFF JESUS.  TRUST IN HIM.  DON'T LET THE DEVIL STEEL IT FROM YOU.  FEAR IS A BIG PROBLEM A LOT OF PEOPLE HAVE.  THEY GET FEARFUL THAT THEY WILL NOT GET IT OR GET IT "IN TIME".  GOD HAS NEVER BEEN LATE YET. 



TAKING YOUR EYES OFF JESUS AND GETTING INTO FEAR IS BAD.  WHEN PETER WAS WALKING ON THE WATER,  HE WAS DOING OK UNTIL HE LET FEAR GET IN HIS WAY AND HE TOOK HIS EYES OFF OF JESUS.  WE MUST NEVER LET THIS HAPPEN TO US.  HE IS ALWAYS THERE FOR US AND LIKE I SAID, HE HAS NEVER BEEN LATE YET.  JUST DON'T START PRAYING FOR IT AGAIN BECAUSE THAT MEANS YOU DIDN'T BELIEVE YOU RECEIVED IT IN THE FIRST PLACE.  MARK 11:24 SAYS "Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them."  



IF YOU REALLY WANT TO DO SOMETHING IN ADDITION TO STANDING AND THANKING GOD FOR IT, SEE WHAT JESUS SAYS IN MATTHEW 18:19 "Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven."  



FIND YOU A GOOD PRAYER PARTNER OR FRIEND AND AGREE WITH HIM/HER "AS TOUCHING ANYTHING".  IT DOESN'T GET MUCH CLEARER THAN THIS.  USE GOD'S WORD TO FIND THE PROMISES AND STAND ON THEM.  LEARN THEM AND CLAIM THEM.  THEY ARE YOURS BUT YOU HAVE TO BELIEVE AND ACCEPT THEM.  WHAT GREAT PROMISES THEY ARE AND THEY ARE FOR ALL OF US.  THANK YOU JESUS. 



GOD BLESS YOU ALL.


"OUR DEBTS HAVE BEEN CANCELLED" BY ANDREW WOMMACK


By DAVID A. MCMILLEN, 2019-02-15
"OUR DEBTS HAVE BEEN CANCELLED"  BY ANDREW WOMMACK
Luke 4:19, "To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord."

LUKE 4:16-30


This scripture had been written prophetically by the prophet Isaiah about 650 years prior to this time. It was read in Jewish synagogues thousands of times. But the one this verse was speaking of had never spoken it before. With this pronouncement, Jesus began the year of Jubilee.

The Year of Jubilee was described in Leviticus 25. It was a year when everyone left their fields unworked and kept a sabbath unto the Lord. The Lord gave the people a miraculous provision the year before this jubilee started that sustained them for three years until their crops could once again be harvested.

This jubilee was different than the other sabbatical years in that every debt was cancelled. All property was returned to its original owner and anyone who had been sold into slavery was set free. It was a year of new beginnings.

Jesus proclaimed a spiritual jubilee. We now live in a time when all our debts to God have been cancelled and all the things the devil stole from us have been returned. Even our slavery to the devil has come to an end through the redemptive work of our Lord Jesus Christ. This is a time for rejoicing.

Jesus is our jubilee.

"THE POWER OF GOD'S WORD" BY DAVID MCMILLEN


By DAVID A. MCMILLEN, 2019-02-14
"THE POWER OF GOD'S WORD" BY DAVID MCMILLEN

DO YOU WANT TO DO SOMETHING REALLY EXCEPTIONAL TODAY? GO TO SOMEONE WHO IS SICK AND HEAL THEM.  IF YOU ARE BORN-AGAIN, YOU HAVE THAT POWER.  YOU AND I KNOW THAT IT IS THROUGH JESUS THAT WE GET THIS POWER BUT IF WE WERE NOT SUPPOSED TO USE IT, HE WOULD NOT HAVE TOLD US TO.  JESUS SAYS IN MATTHEW 10:8 TO "Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give."  OUR PROBLEM IS NOT THAT WE DON'T THINK JESUS CAN HEAL, WE ARE JUST NOT SURE WE CAN DO IT.  WITH THAT KIND OF THINKING, WE CAN'T.  WE HAVE TO HAVE FAITH TO TRUST IN WHAT HE COMMANDS US TO DO AND THAT IS "TO HEAL THE SICK".  I WON'T EVEN GO INTO RAISING THE DEAD ALTHOUGH HE TELLS US TO DO THAT ALSO.  





WHEN YOU DO PRAY FOR SOMEONE, DON'T EXPECT IT TO HAPPEN IMMEDIATELY.  SOMETIMES IT DOES BUT JESUS SAYS IN MARK 11:24 "What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them."  HE DOESN'T SAY YOU MIGHT HAVE THEM, HE SAYS YOU SHALL HAVE THEM.  AND, AFTER YOU PRAY FOR THAT HEALING, DON'T PRAY FOR IT AGAIN.  IF YOU DO, IT SHOWS THAT YOU DIDN'T BELIEVE BECAUSE IF YOU BELIEVED YOU RECEIVED, WHY WOULD YOU PRAY FOR THAT SAME THING AGAIN?  JESUS IS FAITHFUL AND WILL DO WHAT HE SAYS. JUST START THANKING AND PRAISING HIM FOR THAT HEALING.



ONE THING YOU HAVE TO REMEMBER THOUGH.  SOME PEOPLE DON'T WANT TO BE HEALED.  THAT MIGHT SOUND CRAZY BUT IT IS TRUE.  SOME PEOPLE LOVE THE ATTENTION THEY GET FROM BEING SICK.  AND, IF THEY DON'T WANT TO BE HEALED, JESUS WILL NOT HEAL THEM BECAUSE HE GAVE THEM A FREE WILL AND HE WILL NOT GO AGAINST THAT.  IF SOMEONE IS NOT HEALED WHEN YOU PRAY FOR THEM,  DON'T GET DISCOURAGED.  YOU HAVE DONE WHAT JESUS TOLD YOU TO DO AND THE REST IS UP TO HIM AND THE PERSON YOU PRAYED FOR.  JUST DO YOUR PART AND  LET HIM TAKE CARE OF THE REST.  



NOW GO OUT TODAY AND SHOW THE POWER OF GOD BY HEALING SOMEONE.  SOMEONE JUST MIGHT BE DEPENDING ON YOU.  DON'T LET THEM DOWN.



GOD BLESS YOU ALL.


"GOD'S WORD HAS NO LIMITS" BY ANDREW WOMMACK


By DAVID A. MCMILLEN, 2019-02-14
"GOD'S WORD HAS NO LIMITS" BY ANDREW WOMMACK
John 4:50, "Jesus saith unto him, Go thy way; thy son liveth. And the man believed the word that Jesus had spoken unto him, and he went his way."

JOHN 4:46-54


Jesus didn't have to touch the child. He didn't have to send anything home with the father to affect the cure. All He did was speak and the son was instantly healed (v. 53).

This man had traveled over fifteen miles from Capernaum to Cana to find Jesus. Therefore, the son was not within 'earshot" so that Jesus' words sparked some cord of hope in his heart, thereby releasing God's power. No, Jesus' spoken word had so much power that no barriers (such as time or space) had any affect on it whatsoever.

This is hard for us to comprehend. We spend an entire lifetime learning physical limitations and adapting to them. But there are no limits to the power of God's word. Jesus created everything in this physical universe by His words, and that creation will respond to anything He says.

The Lord gave His Word to the Jews but they didn't believe it. Hebrews 4:2 says, "...the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard [it]." We have been given God's words too, in the Bible. If we will speak God's Word in faith, we will get the same results that Jesus did here.
