All Joy & Peace

Pic quote Romans 15 v 13

Good morning everyone and God bless you all!  It is a new day the Lord has made and we should rejoice and be glad!  That photo is of the road we take to go fishing and that is one of the first Scripture pins I made when I first started blogging.  We have a bunch of verses on the side of our fridge and one of them is Romans 15:13.  I was reading that today and I started thinking about what the Christians in Rome were suffering when Paul wrote that to them.  The persecution against them was the most violent and evil punishment the Romans could come up with, yet Paul prayed they would have all joy and peace.  Read that verse again with that in mind.

That is a photo of the Colosseum in Rome.  Many of our Christian brothers and sisters were slaughtered here.  Their blood still cries out and it stands as a testimony throughout time that they stood firm in Jesus and never gave up!

How did they do it?  How could they stand firm as they were thrown into the Colosseum with the lions?  How could they stand firm as they faced being burned alive, crucified, or killed by the sword?  I’ll tell you how, they did it by the power of the Holy Spirit!

Just like Paul prayed, our Mighty God of hope filled them with all joy and peace as they trusted in Him, and they overflowed with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit!  It is only by God’s power that a person could stand strong amidst such terrible hatred and violence.  Paul knew this very well as he himself suffered great persecution, and many times he was tortured for believing in Jesus and preaching the Gospel.  Paul knew the believers in Rome would need to dig deep into their hope in Jesus in order to endure.

“Those who obey his commands live in him, and he in them.  And this is how we know that he lives in us: We know it by the Spirit he gave us.”

1 John 3:24

“We know that we live in him and he in us, because he has given us of his Spirit.  And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent his Son to be the Savior of the world.”

1 John 4:13-14

“For John baptized with water, but in a few days you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit.”

Jesus speaking in Acts 1:5

“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”

Jesus speaking in Acts 1:8

We know He is with us by the Holy Spirit He put inside of us!  It is hard for unbelievers to understand when we talk about it.  It is literally the power of God inside of us folks!  He quite literally fills you up with His Holy Spirit and you have “streams of living water” flowing inside of you just like Jesus promised!  Jesus lives inside of us by the power of the Holy Spirit and through the Spirit we have great power to live a holy and righteous life that pleases God!  That is how Christians are able to stand firm against the tide of evil, sin, and death in this world!

“On the last and greatest day of the Feast, Jesus stood and said in a loud voice, “If anyone is thirsty, let him come to me and drink.  Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, streams of living water will flow from within him.”  By this he meant the Spirit, whom those who believed in him were later to receive.  Up to that time the Spirit had not been given, since Jesus had not yet been glorified.”

John 7:37-39

Through the Holy Spirit we have all the power we need to stand strong in the face of persecution!  Jesus was glorified almost 2,000 years ago when He died for us and resurrected from the dead three days later, and He sits at the right hand of the Father in Heaven glorified forever!  After He ascended into Heaven, He sent the Holy Spirit down to earth in Holy fire on the day of Pentecost and from that day forward all those who believe in Jesus Christ have received power when the Holy Spirit comes on them!

“When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place.  Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting.  They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them.  All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them.”

Acts 2:1-4

“And you also were included in Christ when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation.  Having believed, you were marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit, who is a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance until the redemption of those who are God’s possession–to the praise of his glory.”

Ephesians 1:13-14

Believers in Jesus Christ have access to a never ending well of hope in the Holy Spirit!  Even as the Christians in Rome faced horrific torture and death, there hope overflowed to the point that they would never reject Jesus.  They stayed faithful to the very end!

Whatever we are facing, we can have all joy and peace as we trust in Jesus and we will have overflowing hope because of the Holy Spirit He gave us!  May we always stand strong like our brother Paul and our ancient brothers and sisters in Rome did, and may we always stand up for Jesus no matter what threats we face for proclaiming His Name!

Grace and peace to you all!

“They overcame him

by the blood of the Lamb

and by the word of their testimony;

they did not love their lives so much

as to shrink from death.”

Revelation 12:11

Somebody Needs To Hear This

Pic quote Hebrews 11 v 1

I have been having a rough time this morning.  Last night was very discouraging.  I have always been open and honest on my blog and I want to show my wife that I am not some phony trying to act like I have it altogether all the time.  I have never acted like that and I have always been real about who I am, what I’ve been through, and what I struggle with.  I am a sinner saved by grace and I desperately need Jesus!

The preaching the Lord writes through me here is by the power of the Holy Spirit.  I’m just freely dispensing a gift that He freely gave me, that’s all.  Sometimes I have arguments with my wife and sometimes I get angry and sometimes I get angry and complain about the diseases I suffer and sometimes I get angry with God and say things I shouldn’t and it discourages my family.  I’m not always encouraging and sometimes I have very bad days too.  Every day I need Jesus and I cling to Him with everything I am!  Today, my heart is broken over my mistakes and I am truly sorry for being discouraging to my family at times.  I am an imperfect man and I need God’s grace and mercy too.

The title of this post is due to something the Lord whispered to me this morning as I was praying and asking Him to bring healing and peace to our family.  I am sharing this because I know there are other people out there that need to hear this.  The Lord said to me:

“I forgive you, I am with you, and I love you.  Keep trusting.  Keep believing.  Don’t give up.”

All I could do was say thank you through tears.  That is how the Lord speaks to us as He comforts us in the Holy Spirit!  It’s like a beautiful thought that just flows through your mind.  Let that be a blessing to you today.  No matter what you are going through keep trusting, keep believing, and don’t give up!  Jesus forgives you, Jesus is with you, and Jesus loves you!

To my wife: I love you with all my heart and I love the kids with all my heart.  I have shared my heart in front of all these people because I love you and the kids with all my heart.  Please forgive me for not being the man of God, father, and husband I should be at times.  I love you!

Thank you all for your prayers.  May His will be done in all things!

Grace and peace to you all!

 

With All Your Mind

Pic quote Matthew 22 v 37

These four verses are some of the most famous words of Jesus in the Bible.  I love the answer Jesus gives the Pharisees in this scene from Matthew 22.  The Pharisees and Sadducees had been trying to trap Jesus all day with what they thought were very hard and tricky questions, but His answers were so powerful that they ended up amazed, astonished, and silent.  Today, I want to focus on loving the Lord with all our minds.  To all the thinkers out there, Jesus wants you to love Him with all your mind too!  Having faith in Jesus does not mean you check your mind at the door!

“When they heard this, they were amazed.  So they left him and went away.”

Matthew 22:22

“When the crowds heard this, they were astonished at his teaching.”

Matthew 22:33

“No one could say a word in reply, and from that day on no one dared to ask him any more questions.”

Matthew 22:46

There are many people who wrestle God with their minds.  Some even consider themselves smarter than God.  They find themselves much too intelligent to ever believe in God and they think people of faith have checked their minds at the door.  Let me just say, I believe in Jesus and the Lord gave me a highly inquisitive mind.  I never checked my mind at the door and Jesus never wanted me to.  He tells us to love Him with all our heart, soul, and mind.

“The fear of the Lord is the beginning

of wisdom,

and knowledge of the Holy One is

understanding.”

Proverbs 9:10

What does it mean to love the Lord with all your mind?  Just what it sounds like.  Give Him all your thoughts and questions about Him.  Give Him your frustrations and misunderstandings.  Ask Him anything you want!  Nothing you ask will ever be too hard for the Lord.  I have many questions that I talk with the Lord about.  Some of those questions are hard and I struggle with them at times.  The Lord just keeps on loving me and He always guides me in the truth.  Don’t be afraid to Love the Lord with all your mind.  He loves you and He wants you to love Him with all your mind.

“In him and through faith in him we may approach God with freedom and confidence.”

Ephesians 3:12

Do you ever wrestle God with your mind?  Coming to Jesus does not mean you need to give up reason or your questions.  There is plenty of proof that everything written in God’s Word is true, including the Old Testament stories and the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.  My own testimony proves that Jesus is alive and that everything the Bible says about God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit, angels, and demons is all true!  I have discussed much of this proof on my blog.  If you were reading my blog at Christmastime, then you learned about much of the archeological evidence that exists, including the writings of ancient historians.  Many of you also know that I talked about the artifacts from Pharaoh’s army that are sitting on the bottom of the Gulf of Aqaba in the Red Sea.  I love the Lord with all my mind and I dig deep into learning the truth of His Word and the evidence that confirms it!

Amazing Book & Documentary!

The Darkness, The Torn Curtain, The Earthquake, & The Empty Tombs

If you are having a hard time with questions you have about God, I encourage you to seek Him and ask Him everything you want to ask.  Don’t let it burn inside your mind.  Give it to the Lord!  Love the Lord with all your mind and seek Him first.  He will show you the truth!

“Ah, Sovereign LORD, you have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and outstretched arm.  Nothing is too hard for you.”

Jeremiah 32:17

There is no philosophy of man that is greater than the Lord.  There are no questions He can’t answer and there are no questions that He has not already heard.  Many of us have the same questions about life and death and we struggle with them.  I can say with all my heart, soul, and mind that the Bible has all the answers we need!  Come to Jesus with all your heart, soul, and mind!  I know you will find His answers just as amazing and astonishing as they were almost 2,000 years ago!

Grace and peace to you all!

“Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life.  No one comes to the Father except through me.”

John 14:6

 

 

 

 

 

 

Give It All To Jesus

Pic quote Matthew 6 v 33

Good morning everyone!  It is the start of a new week and I pray the Lord blesses us all!  I want to talk about worry today and what to do with it.  If you have lived on this earth for a good amount of time, then you know by now that life is not easy…and that is an understatement.  All kinds of problems can come at us from every direction and at times it comes at us all at once.  I have good news!  You don’t have to carry those burdens anymore!  Jesus wants you to give them all to Him!

This weekend was crazy for our family.  On top of the pain I have been dealing with from the damage in my body due to Celiac, we have taken a series of financial hits that have left us hurting.  We had just spent a thousand dollars on staining our fence a few weeks ago (because our HOA ordered us to) and then this weekend our refrigerator died.  Then yesterday, our daughter came down with a high fever and she was diagnosed with strep.  This weekend felt like getting slapped in the face only to turn away from it and get slapped again.  Yes, troubles can come at us like that.  Welcome to earth!

Thankfully, I have learned in my almost 23 years walking with Jesus to give it all to Him immediately.  It doesn’t do any good to freak out or worry.  That just causes pain for yourself and for everyone around you.  I know, because I’m not perfect and sometimes I freak out.  Sometimes I get angry and sometimes I still wrestle with God.  That is not a good way to handle things.

There are so many things I could worry about.  I have a chronic illness, two actually.  I can no longer maintain full time employment like I used to when I was healthy.  I make no income.  I have debt up to my eyeballs!  I have two kids to raise and bills to pay.  I have no health insurance and haven’t for at least eight years.  I have no savings and no retirement and I’m 41 years old.  I could go on, but you get the point.  Worrying does no good.

You know what does do good though?!  Giving it all to Jesus!!!  That’s what I do and that’s what I did this weekend!

The Lord blessed us with a brand new fridge and we were able to get it delivered Saturday!  Our daughter was given antibiotics and she is already feeling better!  My wife got paid an extra thousand dollars in her paycheck because of sick days she never used and I’m not in pain this morning!  Somebody please give the Lord some praise!!!  Thank You Jesus!!!  Are you smiling yet?!  Are you feelin’ the Spirit?!!!

You see?  God’s got this!  He always did and He always will!  What trouble?  We have overcome the world through Jesus!  What worry?  Where did it go?  God took it, that’s where it went!

“Who is it that overcomes the world?  Only he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God.”

1 John 5:5

“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace.  In this world you will have trouble.  But take heart!  I have overcome the world.”

Jesus speaking in John 16:33

“But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us.  We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed.”

2 Corinthians 4:7-9

We may be struck down and hanging on by a thread at times, but He will lift us up and deliver us from every trouble!  We will not be overcome!  Our Lord and Savior overcame the world!  Our job is to seek Jesus first!  Seek first His kingdom and His righteousness and He will take care of you!

“A righteous man may have many

troubles,

but the Lord delivers him from them

all.”

Psalm 34:19

“Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time.  Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.”

1 Peter 5:6-7

Listen to how Jesus said it:

“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear.  Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes?  Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them.  Are you not much more valuable than they?  Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?

And why do you worry about clothes?  See how the lilies of the field grow.  They do not labor or spin.  Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these.  If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?  So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’  For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them.  But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.  Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself.  Each day has enough trouble of its own.”

Jesus speaking in Matthew 6:25-34

Amen Lord!  That’s the truth!  How beautiful it is to be cared for by the Lord!

Whatever troubles you are facing today, I encourage you to seek Jesus first and give it all to Him!  Lift it up and let it go!  Jesus loves you and He wants to relieve you of those burdens!

Please pray with me:

“Lord Jesus, thank You for how You care for us!  Please forgive me for my worry and for even getting angry at times when troubles come our way.  Right now I give You all the troubles in my mind and heart.  Please bring healing and peace to everything that is broken and pour out Your blessing into our health and finances.  Bless our marriage and our kids and pour out Your Holy Spirit on us.  I give it all to You Lord, may Your will be done, amen!”

Always remember that God is love and He cares for us!  Through Jesus we have access to the One who created us and He knows exactly what we need!  He will provide for us and sustain us and He will never leave us!  May we always trust in Jesus!

Grace and peace to you all!

“Do not let your hearts be troubled.  Trust in God; trust also in me.”

Jesus speaking in John 14:1

 

 

 

Never Too Far Gone

Double Rainbow 9-8-19
Photo by Ryan, Double Rainbow 9-8-19

Hello everyone and God bless you all!  It is a beautiful Sunday here in Colorado and my family and I are just relaxing today.  I took that photo of the double rainbow last Sunday.  We had been getting some good rain and it is always cool to see two rainbows like that.  Seeing rainbows reminds me of God’s promises.  Not just His promise to never again flood the world, but all of His promises.  His promise to be loving and forgiving never changes and it reminds me that we are never too far gone to turn to Jesus!

“You are forgiving and good,

O Lord,

abounding in love to all

who call to you.”

Psalm 86:5

Remember that today wherever you are at in life.  No matter how bad you have sinned, you can always turn to the Lord!  Whether you have never walked with Jesus or you walked with Jesus for a time and have stumbled and you feel like you can’t come back.  Don’t believe that lie!  You can come back and Jesus wants you to come back!  If you have never known Him, He wants to know you!  He wants to save your soul!

“for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.”

Romans 3:23-24

Even now He is drawing you into a relationship with Him!  God loves you!  He loves you so much that He died for you on a cross to forgive you and give you eternal life!

“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”

Jesus speaking in John 3:16

“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

Romans 6:23

“But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”

Romans 5:8

No matter what you have done, come to Jesus!  Jesus is not going to condemn you.  He is going to love you and heal you with His deep love and forgiveness!  He died for us to set us free from sin and death!

“Since the children have flesh and blood, he to shared in their humanity so that by his death he might destroy him who holds the power of death–that is, the devil–and free those who all their lives were held in slavery by their fear of death.”

Hebrews 2:14-15

“Blessed are they

whose transgressions are

forgiven,

whose sins are covered.

Blessed is the man

whose sin the Lord will

never count against

him.”

Hebrews 4:7-8

Many of us have walked with Jesus for many years, yet we still don’t fully grasp the depth of God’s forgiveness.  Do we fully understand that our sins are completely covered in the Blood of Jesus Christ and we are perfectly forgiven?  It is never too late to turn to Jesus!  As long as you have breath in your lungs, you are alive and there is great hope!  You are never too far gone to turn to Jesus!  He is waiting for you with open arms to wrap you in a loving embrace and once you are His, nothing can snatch you out of His hand!

“I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one can snatch them out of my hand.  My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all; no one can snatch them out of my Father’s hand.  I and the Father are one.”

Jesus speaking in John 10:28-30.

Come to Jesus!  Lay down your burdens and sins at the foot of the cross and let Him lift you up in the power of the Holy Spirit!  Jesus is the answer and He is calling you home!

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.  Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.  For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”

Jesus speaking in Matthew 11:28-30

As the Apostle Paul so boldly said in the power of the Holy Spirit:

“Therefore, my brothers, I want you to know that through Jesus the forgiveness of sins is proclaimed to you.”

Acts 13:38

“That if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.”

Romans 10:9

Blessed are those who believe in Jesus and trust Him fully to forgive their sins!  Jesus died for every sin that has been or ever will be committed and none of us are ever too far gone to come to Jesus!  Rest in His forgiveness and be at peace.  If you have strayed, please come back.  You will find Jesus is still loving and forgiving and He never left you and He never will!

Grace and peace to you all!

“If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.”

1 John 1:9

…because God has said,

“Never will I leave you;

never will I forsake

you.”

Hebrews 13:5

 

 

Don’t Mess Around With Evil

Cross bridge

Today is September 13, 2019.  It is Friday the 13th.  Here in America, that is a day of wicked superstition and many people are already gearing up for the evil celebration called Halloween.  Let me ask you a few questions.  Think back to when you were in 8th grade at about 12 or 13 years old.  That was ’91 for me.  Can you imagine living in a house that was possessed by a demon at that age?  Can you imagine living in that house your entire four years of High School?  Would you and your family have been terrified?  Can you imagine the kinds of memories you would still have?  Would you still like superstitious evil including days that celebrate evil?  Would you still think it is a joke?  I don’t know what your answers would be, but I know what mine are because me and my family suffered it.

Evil is not a joke!  Please don’t mess around with evil!  I plead with you to take it seriously and heed the testimonies of those who have encountered it, including mine!

My testimony: One Man’s Very Strange Supernatural Life

To those in America and everywhere else they show Hollywood movies, be mindful of what is coming through your TVs!  The wicked who control the media will be showing all kinds of filthy movies from the horror genre today.  I strongly encourage you to not watch that spiritual evil!  Do not let it into your mind or your heart and do not let it flow into your homes!  We are in a spiritual war and you better believe there are those in Hollywood who worship the evil one and their movies are demonic.  Cast them out of your minds and hearts, out of your homes, and out of your lives!  Jesus is Lord!  Let Him rule in your heart!

“Above all else, guard your heart,

for it is the wellspring of life.”

Proverbs 4:23

That demon tormented our family for 4 years!  There are no ghosts!  There are angels and demons.  Angels serve God and minister to those who are to inherit salvation.  They are beautiful and mighty and I praise God they protect those who believe in Jesus!  Demons serve the evil one and they masquerade and manifest in many different ways with terrifying trickery.  Both can touch and move physical things in our physical realm.  I have experienced both!  Stay far away from evil!  Run to Jesus!

“Are not all angels ministering spirits sent to serve those who will inherit salvation?”

Hebrews 1:14

“And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light.”

2 Corinthians 11:14

Living with that evil changed the course of my entire life and I almost didn’t survive it.  I was highly suicidal in high school because of it and had severe depression.  Our whole family was terrified!  I praise Jesus for rescuing our whole family!

Listen to me, if you don’t know Jesus, then you have no power over evil.  I plead with you to not mess around with it!  If you ever find yourself in a situation where a demon enters your life, you better run to Jesus!  He is the only One who can save you!

Pic quote John 14 v 6

After I received Jesus my freshman year in college, I went back home that Christmas break and cast that demon out of our house in the Name of Jesus!  Many of you know this, but a lot of the new readers don’t.  That is why I am so on fire for Jesus!  Not only from that, but also from the angels I encountered in ’98 and the miracle the Lord did to save my life in 2012!  Jesus is alive and it is all very real folks!

You can also read my testimony about the demon, the angels, and the miracle here:

Remember that time when…

My Lazarus Moment

Pic quote Eph 6 v 12 sword

Heaven is real.  Hell is real.  Angels are real.  Demons are real.  Sin is real.  God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit are real and so is the evil one!  The spiritual war is real!  We all need to make a choice.  I didn’t want to believe it either.  Before I accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savior, all I wanted to do is party.  Trust me when I say, that I have sinned greatly in my life and I am so thankful for God’s grace and mercy.  God took a man who hated Him and hated His people and turned me into a Gospel preaching man of God!  He cast that demon out of my life and my family’s lives and we all came to Jesus because of it!  Thank You Jesus!!!

Remember that next time you see a commercial for some sick freaky movie about demons or hell or whatever other sick evil things they show.  It is not a joke and I plead with you to rebuke it out of your lives!  Learn from me.  Learn from the terror we went through, and realize that our only way to be delivered from sin and death is by faith in Jesus Christ!  Jesus is the only reason that our family is free and we will cling to Him forever!  Thank You Jesus, You are Lord!!!

Grace and peace to you all in the Powerful Name of Jesus!

Samaritan’s Purse Bahamas Update

Good morning everyone and God bless you all!  God is moving in power!  I want to share an update with you from Samaritan’s Purse on their relief efforts in the Bahamas.  Last week Franklin Graham’s ministry airlifted an Emergency Field Hospital to the Bahamas and it is already in full operation helping people daily!  God is so good!

Here is an email I received yesterday from Samaritan’s Purse:

“The Samaritan’s Purse Emergency Field Hospital in Freeport, Grand Bahama, opened yesterday following the catastrophic strike of Hurricane Dorian.  Our medical team there has already treated scores of patients and performed lifesaving surgery.

We deployed the field hospital via our DC-8 aircraft late last week, at the request of the the World Health Organization and the Bahamas government.  Our team of relief specialists, including doctors and nurses, worked day and night to set up the 40-bed facility so that patients could be seen as soon as possible.  The regional hospital in Freeport was flooded by the storm, and nearly all of its medical equipment and supplies were damaged.

Up to 100 patients per day can be served at our field hospital.  It is equipped with an intensive care unit, operating room, emergency room, obstetrics ward, and a full pharmacy.

Elsewhere in the Bahamas, we continue distributions of emergency relief items, including household water filters and tarps, to the Abaco Islands and other devastated areas.

Please continue to pray for the thousands of people who have lost so much and for our teams as they serve in Jesus’ Name to bring relief and share the hope of the Gospel.

God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.
Psalm 46:1″

-Franklin Graham, President

That is incredible, praise God!  Please pray for all the ministry teams that are helping people in the Bahamas!  Please don’t forget that the people of the Bahamas are going to need our help for quite awhile.  God is with them and He is bringing healing and comfort even now.

Thank you Jesus for the ministry of Samaritan’s Purse!  Thank You for the amazing field hospital and for helping so many people with excellent professional medical care!  Please anoint the doctors in the power of the Holy Spirit and bless the work of their hands as they bring healing and hope!  Bless all the ministry teams Lord and deliver them from the evil one!  Lift up the people of the Bahamas Lord and bring great healing and peace!  May you be with them all in strength and power and glorify Your Name through them, amen!

People of the Bahamas, God is with you and He loves you!

Grace and peace to you all!

“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”

Jesus speaking in John 3:16
