On November 1984 it all began for me. Now, 27 years later I am not the same person as I was then.
As some of you all already know. God called me back in 1984 and I got saved and I received Jesus Christ as my Savior and the Lord of my life. And not long after that. God placed on my heart to go on a journey for Him. I was led by God to build a 12 foot by 6 foot cross and carry it and walk to Oklahoma City. At that time I was living in Guthrie, Oklahoma. It was going to be a 32 mile walk. And I obeyed the call and started walking. And when the journey of walking with the cross came to an end. I had walked over 375 miles carrying the cross city to city sharing the Love of Jesus with who ever I met along the way.
Now, 27 years later I am still on the same journey for God but this time, it is by way of the Internet now. God has me reaching more people then I did when I was walking with the cross. I would say that the walk with the cross was God's way of prepairing me for the journey on the Internet. Sharing the Love and Salvation of Jesus Christ.
How are things going for me today? I have never felt more alive and happy as I do today at 57 years old. The changes in my life takes place mostly when I read and listen to the words of the Bible. And when I pray. That is when God speaks to me through His word.
I feel in my spirit that most people all over the world are carrying around a burden that only God can remove. Please let Jesus come into your life and He will remove those burdens. I know He will, He did mine.
All I want in my life is to let Jesus totally take over my life. I want to see people through the eyes of Jesus, the way He sees people. I want to be His hands to heal and comfort people. I want Jesus to speak through me and use my writings to share His message of love and forgiveness of sins through Jesus Christ. I want my feet to obey the call to go down any path that Jesus wants me to walk. I want more of Jesus in my life and less and less of me. I want to share His love with everyone I can before my life comes to an end on this earth and I go on to Heaven.
It is God's purpose and will in our life that should matter the most in our life. Jesus will shower us with His love and peace in this life and into the next life in Heaven. If we let Him?
God wants us to love people beyond words. He wants us to help the needy and poor people around the world.
Example: Say your neighbor lost their job and they are struggling to pay their bills and to buy groceries. Ask God in prayer to show you what to do to help them out the most.
And God will reveal to us the right thing to do for them. The important part for us to do is to obey what God has put on our heart to do. If we keep putting it off to obey what God has told us to do. The devil will talk us out of doing it and he will steal our blessing that God had instore to give to us for obeying what He told us to do.
God wants us to bless others and by blessing others and God will bless us.
I would like to share something with you, something that I have not shared with many people in my life. And that is. Often every day and night through out my life. When I am going about my daily life. Someones name will come into my thoughts. Or a country comes into my thoughts. I instantly say a prayer for them and that country. And I instantly bind Satan in the name of Jesus Christ.
I trully believe that God has put them on my heart at that moment to pray for them because. The devil was attacking them or fixing to attack them. I am called by God to stand in prayer and come against the evil spirits and I ask God to send legions of angels to protect our brothers and sisters in Jesus Christ and I pray for peace in that country in the name of Jesus Christ.
Listen, we are really in a spiritual battle. And the devil is stealing souls left and right through out the world. And we need to put on the full armor of God and go into battle.
The Armor Of God Can Be Found In:
13. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
14. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
15. And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
16. Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith you shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
17. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
See, the truth is, our battle is not against human beings. Our battle in this life on earth is against Satan and his demons. These people who do evil things against other people are being led by demons and evil spirits.
Listen, this is a real spiritual battle we are in people. A battle for the souls of the human race. We see and hear it almost daily on the news. About people fighting each other world wide. Wars are breaking out world wide. I just want to let everyone of you know that our spirit can never be killed. Our spirit will live in eternity forever. Either in Heaven or Hell. And our decision on earth while we are still alive on earth will put us in one of these two places. We send ourself there. And we can not blame anyone else where we spend eternity.
We can only blame ourself when we wind up in Heaven or Hell. And the truth is, we have only one chance to get it right. While we are alive on earth, we must make the right decision. After we pass away it is too late to change our mind. Our fate is sealed. That is why we must get it right while we are alive on earth.
And it is my mission and calling to tell you what the truth is. What you do with this information is totally up to you. You are responsible for your own soul. The Bible says, choose this day who you will serve. God or man?
My heart goes out to all my Brothers and Sisters in Christ. Who are being persecuted world wide for being Christians. Listen, you are always in my thoughts and prayers daily. Jesus Loves You. Pray that Jesus gives you the strength to fully forgive those who pursicute you. I pray for you daily.
We need to remove the hate that is all around us and replace it with love and forgiveness. We need to help our neighbors, not just with words but do something about their problem or need. We also need to share with them the Bible and give them Jesus Christ.
And tell them that Jesus Christ is God who came in the flesh as a human being from Heaven to save us from our sins. He died on a cross and shed His blood to cleanse us from our sins. And He arose from the dead on the 3rd day from the grave. And He is alive today.
We as Christians have the only religion if we can call it a religion. It is more of a relationship with the true God. The creator of all the human race. Were our Savior Jesus Christ arose from the dead and defeated death. All the other religions on earth, their leaders or founders died and are still dead. They did not defeat death. I don't know about you? But I will not worship a dead person. And no other religion teaches that their founder died for the sins of others.
I think where many Christians go wrong today is this? They go to God all the time to get something for themself. But they never share what they get from God with other people. God pointed this problem out in the Bible. He said, it is more blessed to give than it is to receive.
To grow in Jesus Christ, we must get out of our comfort zone. And get busy doing what God has called us to do. And by faith we need to step out into the unknown and trust God and not fear man. We need to read our Bible and pray daily. We need to love and forgive everyone. And help those who are poor and needy. And share the good news about Jesus Christ.
Jesus said, what ever we do to someone else, we do to Him. Every person you see around the world is created in the image of God. It's that image (their spirit) that Jesus is talking about. So, if we mistreat someone we are mistreating Jesus Himself.
Jesus said, for us to love God with all our heart, soul, mind and strength. And love our neighbor as ourself. If we will not let our self go hunrgy. Why do we turn our face from someone who is in need? And not help them. If we turn our face from them. We are turning our face from Jesus Himself.
My prayer in closing this message is. That you let Jesus come into your life and let Him live His life in you and through you. Be His feet and hands. Let Him reach out to people through you. Let Him speak through you. And I pray that He gives you boldness to be His wittness unto the ends of the earth.
This is a free God supported ministry. So keep your money in your pocket. We are reaching the world for Jesus Christ and not spending a dime. Thanks to Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
May God richly Bless you and your family.
Jesus Loves You
