Update 9/25

Okay, I am still proud to report that I am still in the land of the "upright".
Have determined that the devil wants me dead, but my God is his boss. Got an
email from a strange sister ((unknown to me, actually I like her because she is
so unique). Jesus gave her a specific instruction to eat "watermelon" for three days and drink some water. I decided to "heed the Prophet and ye shall prosper". Besides, I like watermelon. Went to Senior Centr and they were giving away free, freshly cut up watermelon. I thought, "What a God"! and laughed out loud at His request, and immediate solution/answer. I ate the watermelon and felt better. Also contacted an old friend, Jack and Lee Flores. Learned his wife, Lee, has just gotten out of the hospital after spending 14 days in it for cancer. He said he spent every waking hour at her side, praying. He also had been in the hospital recently, but one day only. Some folks are saying they are seeing visions, etc, of natural disasters in the land. I'd say that is cause to draw close to God so you can hear His Voice direct your steps. Only he who is led by the Holy Spirit is on a safe path. He is the Vine, we be but the branches. He is our Brother, Heavenly Father, Healer, Almighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace, King of kings, and Lord of lords. He alone is "the light that lights every man that comes into the world". I am pretty sure He is just about ready to turn on the High Beam Headlights, with a fresh Wind of Change for the Church, America, Israel, and the rest of the world. Judgment must always begin at the House of God because it is we who have been entrusted with His Word, His Spirit, and His power. Most of us don't believe God. We put our faith in that which we can see, doctors, medicine, priests, etc. But healing only comes from God. He can and does use medicine, for those who lack the faith to trust Him.
I just heard from a dear friend of a brother Rudy Jones, who lives back east somewhere. The brother is 85 years old, and neither he nor his wife had an
illness that required a doctor since they were 21 or so. We all need to trust the Jesus that is the same, yesterday, today and forever. We need to trust in His name and His Word. I really like the fact that He honors His Word, even above His Name. That way we can speak His words over any circumstance, and it Must obey the Word of God. Am I getting this wrong? His Word says, "If God be for us, who can stand against us?" I figure this way, if my life is hid in Christ, I died when I sinned, accepted Christ, got baptized into His death, and have been raised from the dead, in Christ, at His resurrection. Anybody messes with me, is messing with Jesus, God the Father, the Holy Spirit, surrounding angels, and that should be more than enough. What floors me is this, "Whatsoever you do to the least of My brethren, you do unto Me." Man, I gotta be nice to everyone because of that. "Vengeance is Mine, I will repay saith the Lord". and
"As you forgive, so shall you be forgiven". If ya want it, ya gotta give it away.
Still need two vehicles to find new homes or start working. Maybe God will send a mechanic. He has before. How I love the Lord! To know Him is to love Him.
Amen Y'all

End of the World, Last Days, and Eternal Life

Now there's a title you don't see every day. Every one of us mortals will expereience a Last Days, (tribulation), The End of the World. That is the end of the domination of the flesh over our lives. That is accomplished by the power of the Holy Spirit in the heart of one who has Yielded his life to Christ. You surely remember that "Eternal Life" is only found in Christ. Christ can only be found in your heart if you have humbled yourself at His feet and made Him Lord over your life. He then owns you and you, personally, are God's affair. He determines what comes into and out of your life. When the Light shines in your heart, then darkness is chased out. He is Love. He is Life. He alone is the Healer. He has set you and me aside for such a time as this. Our lives are not our own, and we have been bought with a price, even the Precious Blood of Jesus Christ, so that we might live in Him. He is the Vine, we are His branches, bone of His bone, and washed in His Blood. His Words alone have given us Life, for they are Spirit and Life. May each of us yield our hearts to the unfailing Love of the Father and of Christ, receive wholeness by His Spirit, and yeild our hearts and minds, that Christ may be All, in all.

Good News!

If you are reading this, then I want to let you know that Jesus made a way for us. He made a "road in the wilderness, and a stream in the desert". Doreen and I finally purchased another car. We are trying to get the other two cars out of here. Have them advertized on Craigslist. Some interest...
Have really stepped up my quiet times with the LORD. I need fresh vision and Him. Thats all.
Thank you so much for praying for us. God heard you, and said, "Why not".
Bless you
