3 Helpful Things in Combating Disease


I learned this from the man of God, EW Kenyon about overcoming disease.
It’s overcomed by the Holy Spirit in your inward hidden man, not by effort
You have to know that the law of the Spirit of Life in Christ Jesus who is inside of you has freed you from the  law of disease and death
You have to know that Christ Jesus condemned with a judicial sentence disease in your flesh.

Big Bertha’s Evangelistic Ministry


I did not drive Big Bertha for two months while in NY.

Not only was the gas tank empty but the tires had lost air from her being parked. I had started her twice since my arrival and the battery though weak, had spurt to life.

After filling the tires I turned off the engine to vacuum the interior. Lo and behold, the battery was dead.

I did not have a jumper cable and the five Miamians whom I asked did not either.

Fortunately there was a Tires Plus in walking distance.

The attendant was nice enough to loan me a fully charged jumper battery. Indeed, Berthas battery, already old, had died after two months of no use.

Since coming from NY God has given me a desire to be neighborly to folks and just reach out to them.

As I sat waiting for Bertha I spoke to an elderly couple who the husband had been a lawyer for 45 years but retired after seeing corruption among his fellow lawyers. It had disheartened him.

There was another couple who had left Venezuela because of the shenanigans of the current administration.

I was surprised when the man said that Venezuelans are not praying people. “If ten percent would cry out to God, He would deliver them from the current evil regime,” he retorted.

We agree that only divine intervention can save Venezuela.

As we chatted, another woman, a seventh day Adventist who was also waiting for her car, got into the conversation. We ended having a big 30 minute exchange about the Lord in the middle of the Tires Plus lobby in Miami!

After that, I went to get my haircut with the hair dresser who has been cutting my hair for two years.

As I sat I told her that I had been out of town for two months on a ministry trip. “Ministry trip”, she asked her eyes wide open.

I realized that in two years I had not discussed God with her. She told me that she has been a devout Christian since a young girl. We had the best conversation we had ever had. She then asked me for a business card of our church

She added at the end of the conversation that if I knew a genuine hardship case of someone who needs a haircut and cannot afford it, to let her know.

I guess this is part of her ministry.

Case and point, whether in NY or Miami, or anywhere else, people are just people.

The love which Jesus has for everybody always wins out.

All it takes is kindness, being friendly and neighborly and not be intimidated by walls of insecurity. Break through, reach out, and you will be surprised what God will do.

What the devil meant today to thwart some of God’s plans, He used that very thwarting to bring His love and glory.

 

What Is The Most Important Thing?


Hebrews 1:2  God, who in various ways and in many ways spoke in time past to the fathers by the prophets,

2  has in these last days spoken to us by the Son, whom He has appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the worlds;

  • God has spoken to us by ONE THING.
  • God has only given us ONE THING!
  • That one thing is His Son, Jesus Christ.

Col 2:2  that their hearts may be encouraged, being joined together in love, and to all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to a full knowledge of the mystery of God, both of the Father and of Christ,

3  in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.

 Eph 3:8  To me, the very least of all the saints, this grace was given, to preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ,

  • All that God is, and has for us, lives IN or INSIDE His Son. 
  • All riches and treasures that belong to God live inside of His Son.

This is why He only needs to speak to us by Him. He is God’s One Thing.

The devil deceives the church by enticing it to ask God for a variety of blessings, when it should be asking God for a spirit of wisdom and revelation.

This spirit is so that Christ, the one thing, and the possessor of all of  God’s treasures and riches, is revealed within each believer.

  • As He is revealed, all God’s treasures and riches living inside of Him are automatically revealed along with Him in the believer.  
  • The more that He is revealed, the more that all treasures and riches living inside of Him are automatically too.

 Col 2:9  For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.

10  And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power:

Fullness, in New Testament terms, is the substance or makeup of an object that defines it to be what it is.

The fullness of Coca Cola, is the fluid within the glass bottle that has all the ingredients, and formula, that labels it exclusively, and independently, of anything else in this world, as Coca Cola.

Inside the Person of Christ is deposited the very being, substance, and makeup of Almighty God which defines Him exclusively as God Almighty.

This Christ, which contains the fullness of Almighty God, has been given to us.

This is why in verse ten we find out that IN Christ, we are already and forever more, complete. 

Once again, the immense treasures and riches which belong to God are experienced by us, in proportion  to the manifestation of Christ within our lives.

God will not compromise. God will not negotiate. Everything is inside His son.

So quit looking for blessings all around you and look to reveal Jesus inside of you  where all blessings live.

He is God’s One Thing!

How To Achieve Excellent Health, God’s Way?


I Tim 1:3  As I besought thee to abide still at Ephesus, when I went into Macedonia, that thou mightest charge some that they teach no other doctrine,

Let’s translate verbatim the verse above:

“That they would teach no doctrine that deviates from the Bible truth because its essence, quality, and quantity come from another source, which is not founded on the words that make up the gospel.”

We sadly see these other doctrines today from many who are supposed to be teaching us the Bible.

2 Timothy 1:13  Hold fast the form of sound words, which thou hast heard of me, in faith and love which is in Christ Jesus.

Look at this verse.

“Hold firmly to the model of healthy, sound, or wholesome words, which you have heard  from me.”

‘Sound”, is a medical term denoting excellent health.

Only the pure words of the gospel can promote health, to our spirits, soul and then body.

They are healthy words because they are true or are in accordance with what is factual about the God, who is the author of heath.

Let’s look at instances where this word for sound or healthy is used.

Lu 5:31  Jesus answered and said to them, “Those who are healthy have no need of a physician, but those who are ill.

Lu 15:27  And he said to him, ‘Your brother has come, and because he has received him back in good health, your father has killed the fatted calf.’

3Jo 1:2  Beloved, concerning all things I pray you to prosper and to be healthy, just as your soul prospers.

Now let’s find these as it pertains to God’s word.

1Ti 6:3  If anyone teaches differently and does not consent to sound words, even those of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which accords with godliness,

2Ti 4:3  For there will be a time when they will not put up with sound doctrine, but according to their own lusts, they will heap up for themselves teachers, tickling their ears,

Tit 1:9  holding fast to the faithful word as he was taught, that he may be able to exhort by sound doctrine, and to convince those who oppose it.

So what does it tell you about the importance of studying the Bible and not just reading it?

Only its study will allow you know the scriptures accurately and promote healthiness to your spirit, soul and bodies,

It’s a matter of health versus sickness, or life versus death.

How I Met St. Peters Angel?


 Acts 12:7  And behold, an angel of the Lord stood there, and a light shined in the prison room; and striking the side of Peter, he roused him saying, “Arise quickly!” And his chains fell away from his hands.

8  And the angel said to him, “Gird yourself and put on your sandals”; and he did so. And he said to him, “Put on your cloak and follow me.”

9  And going out, he was following him, and did not know that the thing taking place by the angel was true, but he was thinking that he was seeing a vision.

10  And going though the first and the second guard posts, they came to the iron gate which leads into the city, which was opened to them of its own accord; and going out, they went forward one street, and immediately the angel withdrew from him.

11  And Peter, having come to himself, said, “Now I know truly that the Lord has sent forth His angel, and has delivered me from the hand of Herod and from all the expectation of the Jews.”

I’d  visit a hang out where  men of a city converged to drink and pass the night.

This place had been there forever.

You’d drive by and see men and women drunk, others reveling, some even stoned.

It had been my practice to visit the hangout, befriend the men and share the gospel in a spontaneous and non-threatening fashion.

I had been nicknamed “the preacher,”

One night though, things were very different. Some of the men had sniffed cocaine, were high as kites and were very confrontational.

As I mingled, one charged me with mal treating my children.

“I walked past the preacher’s home today and heard one of his kid’s screaming”, he snapped in a heated way.

I knew what had happened. My kids were small in those days. One of my daughters was in the habit of screaming bloody murder when she did not get her way.

That morning, my wife Mary, had washed her hair and wanted to brush out the knots.

Mary had not begun the brushing but my daughter was screaming in its anticipation.

This guy had walked past my house when this was happening.

“The preacher was beating his kid!” he rejoined, in a loud voice.

Another coked out dude joined the fray.  “Yeah, preacher, that’s really bad, what did you do to your kid?”

He began pushing me.

I expounded on what had occurred to the fifteen men that were there. None of them said a word. Many of them I knew personally. No one came to my defense.

The loud mouthed and confrontational ones continued inflaming the tempers of the others. “Yeah, we gotta punish the preacher for what he does to his kids!”

One continued to push me around. The others sat in silence, as if their tongues had been cut out.  I was dumb founded and frightened.

The ring leader retorted, “Let’s hang the preacher!”

With that he found a rope and began to make a noose for my lynching. The other one kept on pushing me, while several more hurled accusations.

I appealed to the men who knew me the best, “You’ve known me for years! You see me with my children!”

Nothing. The silence was deafening.

Meanwhile the agitator in a corner gleefully continued constructing the noose.

Suddenly, out of nowhere a girl, a teen ager, appeared.  She was a native of the city.

“Come and follow me”.

She led me past the crowd of the men. Even my agitators were speechless.

“Get in your car and get out here.”

Then she departed from me.

And so I did. I never visited this haunt again, needless to say.

This had been Peter’s angel sent to me.

It’s tragically comical that it took a woman, probably the only one in that joint to rescue me. The men who had been friends were cowardly and spineless.

In our global travels, it’s mostly the women who have supported our ministry, while the men have been heartbreakingly absent.

This is one reason I support women in the ministry. It is troublesome that men who argue against their inclusion in the pulpit are sedentary in the activities of their local congregations.

This story ends on a good note, as with all that God does.

Months later, I saw my noose maker. I said hello, extended my hand and shook his. He stared at me in disbelief, frozen in time, God’s conviction raining on him. Never uttering a word, he walked away. I’ve prayed for him on occasions. I knew he lived in pain.

To this day, I’ve not been able to find my angel to thank her. Maybe in heaven I’ll find out that she was St. Peter’s angel.

How To Hit The Bulls Eye With Your Prayers?


Romans 8:26 Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.

  • Helpeth are the three Greek words: sun anti lambano.

These three words means to meet face to face in order to for one to receive something from the other,

  • Helpeth our infirmities– The Greek tells us that the Holy Spirit comes face to face with us to take a hold together or receive from us our frailties, needs or problems.

27  And he that searcheth ( ereunaoo) the hearts knoweth( INTUITIVELY) what is the mind (FOCUS and MINDSET) of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession (entugchano) for the saints according to the will of God.

  • Searcheth: ereunaoo: To sound out like sonar hits the depths of the ocean.

The Holy Spirit then searches the depths of God to know His will.

We see this same word in the following verse.

1Co 2:10  But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth  (ereunaoo) all things, yea, the deep things of God.

So the Holy Spirit by His grace takes a hold of our needs and shows us the will of God for them.

The catch is that everything is done by the voice of the Spirit and not our own will or emotions.

  • The Spirit itself maketh intercession for us – Greek: (entugchano)

27  And he that searcheth ( ereunaoo) the hearts knoweth( INTUITIVELY) what is the mind (FOCUS and MINDSET) of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession (entugchano) for the saints according to the will of God.

  • Tugchano– To hit the bull’s eye, or “To hit the target above and beyond what is normal.” To do the right thing and do it with skill.”

Thus in intercession in the Holy Spirit, He takes our needs and reveals to us the will of God for them as He searches out God’s depths.

The revealed will of God is always spot on, or hits the bull’s eye.

So when we intercede in the Spirit and do what the Holy Spirit speaks to us, we always hit the bull’s eye in our prayers. It’s impossible to miss.

How Do I Define Faith?


A Heart to Love Ministries selflessly tends to more than 100 children with severe dysfunctions in different parts of Nicaragua.

It provides emergency care packages consisting of food, hygienic products and even small cash donations to their families.

My heart was touched by our visit to one of these kids, Dennis, born with hydrocephalus.

Dennis is generally unaware of what goes on around him.

I was deeply affected by Dennis’s mother.

She is woman not only of tremendous faith, but immense gratitude and humility before God.

I would think that she would be bitter after asking God for elven years for her son’s healing.

Yet her level of humility and gratefulness way exceeds mine.

Her faith mingled with tears as we cried together for her son was beautiful.

She has as much faith now as when her son was born to believe for his healing.

Most dysfunctional children who we met only had a mother, for the father fled when finding out about their child’s condition.

I was floored by the deep love that these women have for their severely dysfunctional children.

It’s a slap on the face of the abortion rights movement.

For these women, their children are not an inconvenience; rather they are their prized possession.

The love of God for humanity is visibly clear in these women.
