I HAVE A CONFESSION TO MAKE.

I’ve spent 9 months on the inside.

 

But so have you!

Please add 9 months to your age.

God does.

 

What happens when you put PRO-LIFE and PRO-CHOICE together?

You should get CHOOSE LIFE!!

 

Throw a party 9 months before your birthday.

And celebrate the truth that God formed you and knitted you together in your mother’s womb.

That will confound the world!

 

But more than that, it is written God knew you in the womb and even in His own thoughts, before that!

That’s your real conception!

In the mind of God.

 

HAPPY in-the-mind-of God-DAY!

We are raised up with Him and seated with Him in heavenly places in Christ Jesus.     (Eph   2:6)

But still attached to our bodies and the earth, by the silver cord. (Eccl. 12:6)

Get a higher perspective on things and use that authority here on earth to see His kingdom come!

The laying on of hands is simple; a simple circuit.

Thus, it is TWO hands, not one.

They will lay hands on the sick and they will recover. (Mk 16: 18)

With children the order is laying hands AND THEN praying;

Then some children were brought to Him so that He might lay His hands on them and pray. (Matthew 19:13)

Laying on of hands is a separate ministry of its own.

With impartation the order is praying AND THEN laying on of hands;

And these they brought before the apostles; and AFTER praying, they laid their hands on them (Acts 6:6)
Then, when they had fasted and prayed and laid their hands on them, they sent them away (Acts 13:3)

And it happened that the father of Publius was lying in bed afflicted with recurrent fever and dysentery; and Paul went in to see him and AFTER he had prayed, he laid his hands on him and healed him (Acts 28:8) 

For this reason I remind you to kindle afresh the gift of God which is in you THROUGH the laying on of my hands (2Tim 1:6)

Too often, we rush in, quick lay hands on someone and in the same moment pray.

But we must wait, be led by the Holy Spirit, hear His voice and leading (then you can know where to lay your hands if it is necessary), know what the circumstance requires and understand that laying on of hands is a ministry of imparting all on its own. It is a DOING moment, not a SPEAKING one.

We need to have that ‘light bulb’ moment.

Your adversary the devil may prowl around like a lion seeking whom he may devour (1 Peter 5:8)

BUT

It has been said, he has no teeth.

He can only gum you to death!

And besides he is only like a lion.

He’s not the genuine article!

AND                                                                                                                                          

It must also mean that,

Jesus,

The Lion of the tribe of Judah,

Does the opposite; the original.

It is He who

Walks majestically and tenderly seeking whom he may encourage and accept.

This Lion of Judah can be found in Buddhist Temples, in Pubs, in Red Light Districts, in Hotel bedrooms…

In any place where a genuine and sincere heart is seeking Truth.

A friend of tax collectors and sinners.

That they might turn fully toward Him.

For the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost. (Luke 19:10)

“STEP RIGHT UP!”

“STEP RIGHT UP!”

The only Christian ENTERTAINMENT I know of from Scripture

is

the kind that ENTERTAINS angels unawares. (Hebrews 13:2)

Have you seen this before?

What does the ‘L’ stand for?

Yes, that’s right.

‘L’ is for LOVE!

 

 

 

When you’re driving your ‘vehicle’, your L plates:

  • must be displayed on both the front and rear of the vehicle….let your light so shine!
  • must be displayed where it is clearly visible to other road users…so others will know that you are my disciples by the love you have for one another.
  • must not restrict your front or rear vision…your young men will see visions!

Let us continue to learn love and practise it!

 Who is your “Senior Pastor”?

My Bible tells me it always was and is JESUS…the “CHIEF SHEPHERD”! (1 Peter 5:4)

 

Let’s not take HIS place!
