A Christmas Miracle

Hello everyone,

I want to tell you about Jesus the Healer. Those who have followed this blog might be thinking right now, what have you got to say? Your husband died, what can you tell me about healing? Yes I was there with you on that one–my faith was greatly shaken when my husband died just a year and a half ago of Glioblastoma–not my faith in God, but to pray for healing. I had believed with all my heart that my husband would live and not die, and when he died it rocked my world.

My husband’s death didn’t change God, it changed me!

I will not go into all that I have been through in the last two years, I have yet to understand it all. It is far too vast and complicated to relate or relive again, but I will tell you that I can fervently say, JESUS is the HEALER!

A white-faced and shaken co-worker related to me one day a couple of weeks ago that she was scheduled to go to University of Michigan Hospital to start the process for a liver transplant. The MRI showed that without a new liver her life would be ending soon. She has a husband and three little kids and should have a long life ahead of her. I told her God can heal her and related healing stories that I had experienced; especially one of a co-worker that had hounded me to pray for her that God would heal her of Rheumatoid Arthritis. Recalling that incident, I admit that I didn’t have the faith to just jump right in and pray for her, as she was not a believer. I know God often heals unbelievers, though it is a gift and not the Covenant right as that of the children of God. Therefore, I was concerned that it might not happen and send her further away from God. Instead I urged her that she pray and behind the scenes I sought God and waited.

One early morning He woke me up with scriptures, one after another that I wrote down, and He spoke to my heart…

“Today is the day to pray for Carol, I’m going to heal her.”

Now I had ‘heard’ from God and had the faith to pray. She held the door for me that morning, the first person I saw. I asked her if she still wanted prayer and said, “God’s going to heal you today!” She lit up with excitement and said, yes! We enlisted another co-worker, a Christian, that she was especially close to, to join us in prayer and set the time to be at our break. In the privacy of the bathroom we tried to lay hands on her, but the Fire of God came down so HOT that we couldn’t touch her and with tears streaming down all three of our faces, she was instantly healed! As Carol sailed out of the bathroom, with a huge smile on her face, she looked back at me and announced, “You didn’t know this but today is my birthday!”

No I didn’t know it was her birthday, but God knew

Carol told me the next day that she had gone home and rode her horse for the first time in two years. Praise Jesus for His healing power! I felt it was lack of faith that I didn’t pray for her right away, but maybe God didn’t give me that faith because He wanted her to have a special birthday surprise. His timing is perfect if we wait on Him, and this extra special day especially spoke to this unbeliever that God knows and cares about her personally–He knows her birthday! Later we went together to pray for another of our co-workers that was sick, and that day I had the privilege to witness Carol ask the Lord to come into her heart Glory to God!

So I told this current co-worker that story and talked to her of faith. She said she is a believer and believed that God will heal her. I didn’t lay hands on her, as often we Christians do. Though I kept searching my heart to see if He wanted me to, I didn’t receive that lead. We were in agreement and we believed. I have been immersing myself in the Word of God and countless teachings, prayer and counseling; working on my heart, my soul and building my spirit man. I wasn’t kidding when I said my world was rocked and I knew that the only way I would survive was to dig deeper into the Word and the Ways of God–dig until I found out what is amiss in me. An unending job–there is always more and to build on what is right–the Truth of the Word!

One day at home, as I was praying for my co-worker, again the Lord spoke to my heart, so clear it was nearly audible. “I have heard your prayer and I am going to heal her.”

As the tears streamed down my face I rejoiced and thanked Him for His unending Faithfulness!

Over the period of about two weeks the Lord asked me to relate to her a couple more stories of personal accounts I had experienced of His Healing Power, to build her faith, keep her strengthened. She is amazing and grabbed ahold with a child-like faith that was matter of fact–a done deal. I am sure this made God smile. It wasn’t begging or pleading or straining, just belief that what He says He will do–HE WILL.

“Again I say to you, if two of you agree on earth about anything they ask, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven. For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I in the midst of them.” Matthew 18:19-20

UNWAVERING TRUST

One time I did speak to her about fear. I could see something in her eyes. She admitted that she had some. Well, who wouldn’t? But I explained that fear was the opposite of faith and it is double-minded. To be in faith, fear must go!

“Have no anxiety about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God which passes all understanding, will keep your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:6-7

Again with that wonderful child-like trust she cast fear down, firmed up her faith and believed. At about a week and a half she said she was feeling better. I said “that’s cuz you’re healed.” she nodded in firm agreement. U of M had called but she was sleeping and they left a message. She tried to call them for a week but could only leave messages that they didn’t return. I told her that is because she is healed. She whole-heartedly agreed and at the end of two weeks, or thereabouts, went in for a second MRI.

Two MRI’S side by side and a puzzled doctor, whom has no explanation, but said, “What are you doing here? There’s nothing wrong with you!” Her new MRI showed the same liver, but brand new, completely healed. He came to set the captives free!

Praise Jesus–The Healer!

“O Lord my God I cried to thee for help, and thou hast healed me.” Psalms 30:2

Glory to God!!

It wasn’t my faith that brought forth her healing, it was hers! I poured myself out for my husband to be healed; I believed with all my heart, but the person that has the need must connect their faith with the Healing Power of God. Jesus is always willing to be your Healer. Healing power is always flowing out to you, if you simply believe. But things like doubt and fear and double-mindedness or words that speak unbelief, quench that power. The means to drive that out is to know the Word of God. Get it in your heart until you know that you know that you know!

If you are a born again believer it is your covenant right to walk in health. Your covenant says that you are already the healed and sickness, disease the trespasser. Line up your heart, mind and especially your mouth with the Word of God. You need not beg God to heal but as you ask Him, simultaneously demand, using your God-given authority, that sickness leave; speak of your body healed. Many do not believe until they see the symptoms gone; oh if we would only believe before we see, then it would be! Find out what your covenant with God is and Live in the fullness of all it contains!

Many say that God gives them sickness to teach them something. Blasphemy!

“He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, that we might die to sin and live to righteousness. By his wounds you have been healed.” I Peter 2:24

Jesus is the Healer.

He is always good! Don’t believe that lie, but be built up in what His Word really says to LIVE HEALED.

“If you will diligently hearken to the voice of the Lord your God, and do that which is right in his eyes, and give heed to his commandments and keep all his statutes, I will put none of the diseases upon you which I put upon the Egyptians; for I am the Lord, your healer.” Exodus 15:26

May we all attain the wonderful child-like faith that my co-worker friend displayed. May we all receive the gift of Healing that she received.

May we BELIEVE!

Thank you Lord Jesus! Thank you for Healing my friend! May this Christmas Miracle remind us all that Jesus and His Love is the reason for the season.

May you experience the unending Love of God and His Miracle Working Power in your life today!

Merry Christmas!

“And he said to them, ‘Go into all the world and preach the gospel to the whole creation. He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned. And these signs will accompany those who believe: in my name they will cast out demons; they will speak in new tongues; they will pick up serpents, and if they drink any deadly thing, it will not hurt them; they will lay their hands on the sick, and they will recover.'” Mark 16:15-18

 

Family Reunion

You had to have reason to turn your back on Israel; You had to have reason and that reason was me. You desire that all should be saved–that all should be made free. You set aside my sisters, my brothers, merely to call upon me.

“But if some of the branches were broken off, and you, a wild olive shoot, were grafted in their place to share the richness of the olive tree, do not boast over the branches. If you do boast, remember it is not you that support the root, but the root that supports you. You will say, ‘Branches were broken off so that I might be grafted in.’ That is true. They were broken off because of their unbelief, but you stand fast only through faith. So do not become proud, but stand in awe. For if God did not spare the natural branches, neither will he spare you.” Romans 11:17-21

With a thankful heart I pray for those–my departed family.

Please return and see, that you may believe–receive eternity. Jesus came, He is the Savior–it is a mystery; that a tiny baby would save the world–would one day come for me.

Lord, is it not time for Israel to come home–be grafted in to thee?

They stepped aside, the sin of pride, but you can set them free. And one day soon you’ll come again–you’re coming then for me. But I will not rest until you’ve blessed the entire family.

Set them free. Join them to me–my family.

“Lest you be wise in your own conceits, I want you to understand this mystery, brethren; a hardening has come upon part of Israel, until the full number of the Gentiles come in, and so all Israel will be saved; as it is written, ‘The Deliverer will come from Zion, he will banish ungodliness from Jacob’; ‘and this will be my covenant with them when I take away their sins.'” Romans 11:25-27

“Therefore remember that at one time you Gentiles in the flesh, called the uncircumcision by what is called the circumcision, which is made in the flesh by hands–remember that you were at that time separated from Christ, alienated from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers to the covenants of promise, having no hope and without God in the world.

But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near in the blood of Christ. For he is our peace, who has made us both one, and has broken down the dividing wall of hostility, by abolishing in his flesh the law of commandments and ordinances, that he might create in himself one new man in place of the two, so making peace, and might reconcile us both to God in one body through the cross, thereby bringing the hostility to an end. And he came and preached peace to you who were far off and peace to those who were near; for through him we both have access in one Spirit to the Father.” Ephesians 2:11-18

“For your Maker is your husband, the Lord of hosts is his name; and the Holy One of Israel is your Redeemer, the God the the whole earth he is called. For the Lord has called you like a wife forsaken and grieved in spirit, like a wife of youth when she is cast off, says your God.

For a brief moment I forsook you, but with great compassion I will gather you. In overflowing wrath for a moment I hid my face from you, but with everlasting love I will have compassion on you, says the Lord, your Redeemer.” Isaiah 54:5-8

“Thus says the Lord: ‘Heaven is my throne and the earth is my footstool; what is the house which you would build for me, and what is the place of my rest? All these things my hand has made, and so all these things are mine, says the Lord. But this is the man to whom I will look, he that is humble and contrite in spirit, and trembles at my word.” Isaiah 66:2

“Upon your walls, O Jerusalem, I have set watchmen; all the day and all the night they shall never be silent. You who put the Lord in remembrance, take no rest, and give him no rest until he establishes Jerusalem and makes it a praise in the earth.” Isaiah 62:6-7

 

The Twinkle in Your Eye

Do you suppose Abraham wondered about the grains of sand and the stars in the sky? It is a hard thing to fathom, something so far-fetched, and yet to believe–but he did! He believed the impossible, to be possible, and it became.

Faith like that triumphs! That faith receives

Do you believe?

Accept as fact, that which has no facts, just because I told you so. When you trust Me that much, the sky holds no limit; just as Abraham found to receive. The stars that do shine, are a twinkle in his eye–an endless family.

I want you to seek Me, for the outrageous plan for your life–believe Me, for that which cannot be done.

For I AM the God who doesn’t know impossible…

I speak, and so it is done!

Call upon Me, while I AM near.

Come to Me without fear.

I invite you to come and we will discuss your future–if you are willing to dream. For I have a plan–it is unlike another; for each one is individual to Me.

So, come to Me, all who are willing to try that which has never been done.

For I AM creative ‘always’.

Make no mistake…

I finish what hasn’t begun!

“–the word of the Lord came to Abram in a vision, “Fear not, Abram, I am your shield; your reward shall be very great.” “And he brought him outside and said, “Look toward heaven, and number the stars, if you are able to number them.” Then he said to him, “So shall your descendants be.” And he believed the Lord; and he reckoned it to him as righteousness. Genesis 15:1,5-6

“When Abram was ninety-nine years old the Lord appeared to Abram, and said to him, “I am God Almighty; walk before me, and be blameless. And I will make my covenant between me and you, and will multiply you exceedingly.” Then Abram fell on his face; and God said to him, “Behold, my covenant is with you, and you shall be the father of a multitude of nations. No longer shall your name be Abram, but your name shall be Abraham; for I have made you the father of a multitude of nations.” Genesis 17:-5

“By faith Sarah herself received power to conceive, even when she was past the age, since she considered him faithful who had promised. Therefore from one man, and him as good as dead, were born descendants as many as the stars of heaven and as the innumerable grains of sand by the seashore.” Hebrews 11:11-12

“The Lord visited Sarah as he had said, and the Lord did to Sarah as he had promised. And Sarah conceived, and bore Abraham a son in his old age at the time of which God had spoken to him. Abraham called the name of his son who was born to him, whom Sarah bore him, Issac.” “Abraham was a hundred years old when his son Isaac was born to him. And Sarah said, “God has made laughter for me; every one who hears will laugh over me.” And she said, “Who would have said to Abraham that Sarah would suckle children? Yet I have borne him a son in his old age.” Genesis 21:1-3, 5-7

“I will indeed bless you, and I will multiply your descendants as the stars of heaven and as the sand which is on the seashore. And your descendants shall possess the gate of their enemies, and by your descendants shall all the nations of the earth bless themselves, because you have obeyed my voice.” Genesis 22:17-18

“Know therefore that the Lord your God is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and steadfast love with those who love him and keep his commandments–” Deuteronomy 7:9

“And without faith it is impossible to please him. For whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him.” Hebrews 11:6

“And Jesus said to him, “If you can! All things are possible to him who believes.” Mark 9:23

“Jesus looked at them and said, “With men it is impossible, but not with God; for all things are possible with God.” Mark 10:27

“O give thanks to the Lord, call on his name, make known his deeds among the peoples! Sing to him, sing praises to him, tell of all his wonderful works! Glory in his holy name; let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice! Seek the Lord and his strength, seek his presence continually! Remember the wonderful works that he has done, his miracles, and the judgments he uttered, O offspring of Abraham his servant, sons of Jacob, his chosen ones!” Psalms 105:1-6

 

Don’t Look Back!

Remorse is something that plagues My Body and I would like you to know that it is a lack of faith. For if you truly believe in My forgiveness, and if My Blood completes you, then you will know that you are set apart from your sin as if it never happened.

  • True repentance begins with an awakening to your sin.
  • Acknowledgement that you need cleansing.
  • And a turning away from the sin, never to turn back to it again in action or memory.

In re-visiting the sin through remorse you have not truly received My forgiveness, it is there for you always, but it must be received in faith that My shed blood makes you complete and therefore completely cleansed…

Nothing held against you. To put it simply–

Be free My Body.
Be free My dear one.

I did this all for you; so carry no more guilt, shame or sadness, but…

Smile and move on.

Continue in faith knowing that I love you, and desire that you…

Don’t Look Back!

“For David, after he had served the counsel of God in his own generation, fell asleep, and was laid with his fathers, and saw corruption; but he whom God raised up saw no corruption. Let it be known to you therefore, brethren, that through this man forgiveness of sins is proclaimed to you, and by him every one that believes is freed from everything from which you could not be freed by the law of Moses.” Acts 13:36-39

“May you be strengthened with all power, according to his glorious might, for all endurance and patience with joy, giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified us to share in the inheritance of the saints in light. He has delivered us from the dominion of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of his beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.” Colossians 1:11-14

“He does not deal with us according to our sins, nor requite us according to our iniquities. For as the heavens are high above the earth, so great is his steadfast love toward those who fear him; as far as the east is from the west, so far does he remove our transgressions from us.” Psalms 103:10-12

“Who is a God like thee, pardoning iniquity and passing over transgression for the remnant of his inheritance? He does not retain his anger for ever because he delights in steadfast love. He will again have compassion upon us, he will tread our iniquities under foot. Thou wilt cast all our sins into the depths of the sea.” Micah 7:18-20

“But this is the covenant which I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the Lord: I will be their God, and they shall be my people. And no longer shall each man teach his neighbor and each his brother, saying, ‘Know the Lord,’ for they shall all know me, from the least of them to the greatest, says the Lord; for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sins no more.” Jeremiah 31:34b

“For I will be merciful toward their iniquities, and I will remember their sins no more.” Hebrews 8:12

“So if the Son makes you free, you will be free indeed.” John 8:36
