01:28 pm: Communion
Communion
By
Stephen Ingraham
John 6:51 I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat to eat to devour, consume of this bread, he shall live for ever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.
52 The Jews therefore strove among themselves, saying, How can this man give us his flesh to eat to gnaw, crunch chew?
53 Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat to gnaw, crunch, chew the flesh of the Son of man, and drink to drink his blood, ye have no life in you.
54 Whoso eateth to gnaw, crunch chew my flesh, and drinketh to drink my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day.
55 For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink a drinking, drink indeed.
56 He that eateth to gnaw, crunch my flesh, and drinketh to drink my blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him.
57 As the living Father hath sent me, and I live by the Father: so he that eateth to gnaw, crunch, chew me, even he shall live by me.
58 This is that bread which came down from heaven: not as your fathers did eat to gnaw, crunch chew manna, and are dead: he that eateth to gnaw, crunch chew of this bread shall live for ever.

1 Corinthians 11:23 ¶For I have received of the Lord that which also I delivered unto you, That the Lord Jesus the same night in which he was betrayed took bread:
24 And when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me.
25 After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me.
26 For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew the Lord's death till he come.
27 Wherefore whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of the Lord, unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord.
28 But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup.
29 For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning to separate, make a distinction the Lord's body.
30 For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep.

Prophesied
Isaiah 53:4 ¶Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.
5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.
Next Are The Hebrew Definitions.
Isaiah 53:4 Surely he hath borne to bear, carry, support, sustain, endure our griefs sickness, and carried our sorrows pain (physical) (mental): yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten to strike, smite, hit, beat, slay, kill of God and afflicted
5 But he was wounded for our transgressions rebellion, guilt of transgression, he was bruised for our iniquities perversity, depravity, iniquity, guilt or punishment of iniquity: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes bruise, stripe, wound, blow we are healed to heal, make healthful.
Fulfilled
Matthew 8:16 When the even was come, they brought unto him many that were possessed with devils: and he cast out the spirits with his word, and healed all that were sick:
17 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses.
Let’s look at the Greek Definitions.
Matthew 8:16 When the even was come, they brought unto him many that were possessed with devils to be under the power of a demon: and he cast out the spirits with his word, and healed to heal, cure, restore to health all each, everyone that were sick:
17 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias Isaiah = "Jehovah's help“ the prophet saying, Himself took our infirmities feebleness of health or sickness, and bare our sicknesses disease, sickness.

Partaking Of Holy Communion


Let us now partake of the Lord’s Supper and release faith for our forgiveness and healing.
Before you partake, just know that God wants you to:
3 John 1:2 Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.
Prepare the bread and wine, and do not be in a rush.
Remember, this is not a ritual.
You are about to personally experience afresh His love for you.

Hear Him say to you, “Take, eat. This is My body, which is broken for you”.
See His eyes burning with love as He says to you, “This cup is the new covenant in My blood is shed for you.”

See the Lord carrying all your sins and diseases.
He took you’re your sins in his body on the cross.
See Him taking on His body your physical conditions too.
Whatever disease you might have, see it on His body.
It is no longer on you.
See His health come on you.

Surely He bore your sins and carried your diseases.
See as you partake, release your faith in the bread and wine.

Hold the bread in your hand and say this:

Thank You Jesus for Your broken body.
It is for my healing, my spouse’s healing and my children’s healing.
Thank You that by Your stripes, By the beatings You bore, by the lashes which fell on Your back, we are completely healed.
I believe and I receive.

(Eat the bread)

Next take the cup in your hand and say this:

Thank You Jesus for the new covenant cup in Your blood.
Your blood has brought me forgiveness and washed me from every sin.
I thank You that Your blood has made me righteous.
And as I drink, I celebrate and partake of the inheritance of the righteous, which is preservation, healing, wholeness and prosperity.

(Drink the wine)
Thank You Jesus, I love You because You first Loved me.

11:18 am: The Answer For A Guilty Conscience
Hebrews 9:14
14how much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself without spot to God, cleanse your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?

Have you heard the voice of your conscience saying things like, “You deserve hell for the sins you committed against your wife three years ago” or “Why are you surprised that your child is not talking to you? You were never around when he needed you”?
You know, there are people who feel depressed all the time because of a sense of guilt, and they “pay” for their sins in terms of illnesses. In fact, doctors are discovering that many psychosomatic sicknesses are caused by guilt and condemnation because the conscience is saying, “You have done wrong. You must be punished. How can your sin not be punished?”
That is why you must have an answer that will satisfy your conscience. When your conscience says, “You have sinned. You must be punished for this sin or else God is not a just God,” you say, “Yes, I have sinned. But this sin and every other sin that I have committed were punished to the maximum in the body of Jesus Christ! So there remains no more punishment for me today, for how much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself without spot to God, cleanse my conscience!”
My friend, the only way to bring peace to your conscience is to look to the cross. The cross of Jesus is the only answer that will satisfy your conscience.
So the next time your conscience condemns you because of sin, don’t try to silence it with your good works. Look to the cross and say, “Father, thank You for Jesus and the cross. Jesus was totally condemned on my behalf for this sin, so there is now absolutely no condemnation left for me.” Then, your conscience will look at the cross and say, “Ahhhh... peace.” My friend, Jesus’ finished work at the cross truly sets you free!

01:45 pm: What about 1John 1:9
What about 1John 1:9

By
Joseph Prince
Notes by
Stephen Ingraham

Peter, James and John are called to preach to the Jews.
Paul was called to preach to the Gentiles.
Paul wrote 3/4ths of the New Testament.
And he never mention about confessing your sins one time.

If confessing your sins is as important as those advocates of 1John 1:9 then Paul has done all of us an injustice.

If Paul was preaching 1John 1:9 to the believer he would have mention it elsewhere.
Paul did not mention it in the book of Romans, Galatians, not in the book of Colossians, not in the book of Thessalonians.

No were do you find Paul telling the believer to confess there sin.
Never !
Paul him self never confessed the sins of the church.

You know the Old Testament people the Jewish people like to confes there sins because they were under the law and the law makes them sin conches.
Even Moses confessed the sins of the Israel.
Even David the palmists confessed the sins of Israel.
Even Daniel confessed the sins of Israel of my fathers and fore fathers.

Notice that Paul never confessed the sins of the church he was writing to.
All his prayers were recorded for us.
His prayers were filled with, God fill you with all knowledge to know what you have.
It was always God give you the spirit of wisdom to know what you have.
God give you wisdom and knowledge and understanding to know what you already have.

One thing we already have is forgiveness of sin.

If not
If you who hold up 1John 1:9 even now if you have a bad thought about me.
Have you confessed that ?
If not you are out of fellowship.

No church it is not written to the believer.

Why does it say to confess your sins ?
We will come back to this.

Look at Paul’s letters again.
When ever Paul finds sin in the church Paul says for example.
The Corinthian there were some believers going to the temple prostitutes which was the practice in those days and it was part of there pagan worship.
That’s right some believers were going to the temple prostitutes.
Now this is a fine time for Paul to tell them to confess there sin.

But Paul never said that.

What he did say is what don’t you know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit.

WOW

He reminds them of what they have.

Has Paul done to them an injustice if confession of sin is so important?
To make them right with God Paul should have told them to confess there sin.
But what he does say don’t you know that you body is the temple of the Holy Spirit.
He tells them what they already have.
In one letter brother was suing another brother in civil court.
Paul says he guys what are you doing brother suing brother in front of unbelievers.
Are there no wise men to arbitrate among you ?
What don’t you know that you will judge Angels and you can not judge the affairs of life ?

In another place don’t you know all things are yours?
That you are truly rich in Christ.
With Paul it always is don’t you know, don’t you know, don’t you know.

He should have said confess your sins.
He did not !
Has Paul done the church an injustice ?
In all of his inspired writings he did not breath confess our sins one time.

Maybe Paul new about 1John 1:9 ?
Paul’s letters were written before 1John 1:9.
When John wrote 1John 1:9 was in AD 90 to AD 94
Paul first letters were written in AD 50’s.
His first letter was written to Thessalonians.
The church was born AD 33
The church was born at Pentecost.

Now the church has been without 1John 1:9 for more than 50years because John wrote this in about AD 90.
We have hind sight and can look back to 1John 1:9.
If you lived in AD 55 when Paul wrote his letters and you sin what do you do ?
Look to 1John 1:9 to stay in fellowship.
But 1John 1:9 has not been written.
All you have is Paul’s letters that say we have forgiveness of sin accordingly to the riches of His grace.
That is what you have.

The church was without this teaching for about 50yrs.

If you believe that a believer must confess their sins to be forgiven and God will not bless them and they are out of fellowship, isn’t it strange that when Jesus appeared after the resurrection the ladies saw Him first and went back to the apostles in the upper room, hey the Lord has risen and what did the men say ?
They did not believe them.

That is wrong very wrong they did not believe in the resurrection.
Jesus told them time and time again that he would rise from the dead and they did not believe.
The Ladies came as eye witnesses and they did not believe.
They were hiding with the doors shut for fear of the Jews.
They were hind because of fear.
Question ?
Is fear a sin ?
Fear is sin because look in the book of Revelations at the groups of people thrown into the lake of fire.
The first two groups the fearful and the second one the unbelieving.

Don’t worry this is not for fearful believers.
There will be no holy smoking for you.

God hates fearful and unbelief.
Long before murderers and war mongers and abomination.

As believers we do not go into the lake of fire.

Most of us who believe in 1John 1:9 do not confess our fears.
You confess the big ones and forget about fear and unbelief.
The reason people steel is fear and unbelief.

Why were the apostles hiding?
For fear of the Jews.
Then Jesus appeared in the mist of them in Hisw resurrection body.
And He said to them confess your sins.
Because they are fearful and they did not believe the resurrection.
But Jesus appears in the mist of them and said Hi guys chill.

Peace

Why is Jesus acting like they did not sin?
Should He have told them confess your sin and turned away.
Why didn’t He say confess is because He did not impute their sin to them.
His first word to them and to us is peace
He showed them the foundation of why they can have peace.
He showed them His hands and His feet and His side and that is why they and we can have peace.
Then the disciples were glad.
Now they have peace and joy.
Peace comes when you know that your sins are forgiven.
Joy comes when you have a revelation from the Lord.
It is a wonderful testimony for a Christian love joy and peace.

It is not what you have on the outside but what you have on the inside love joy and peace.

By the way somebody was absent from this upper room that day.
It was Thomas.
The disciples told Thomas that the Lord had risen and he did not believe unless I see the prints in his hands and touch the wound in His side I will not believe He is risen.

Now that is unbelief in the most important doctrine the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
Now Jesus appeared when Thomas was there and said Thomas get out of here sinner.

NOT

Jesus made a bee line to Thomas.
The one who sins the most needs most grace.
Jesus did say to Thomas feel the prints in My hands and the wound in my side.

I am sure that Thomas confessed yes Thomas did confess.
My Lord and my God and that is what he confessed.

Jesus did not impute unbelief unto Thomas because He paid it all.
Do you understand He paid it all ?

Your peace is not within yourself.
The reason for your peace is outside yourself in the person of Jesus Christ and what He did.
He showed His hands and side because this is the foundation of your peace perfect settled peace.

If you look inside you will never find perfect peace because your inside change.
Look outside to Jesus who will never change.
His love for you will never change.

03:27 pm: A quote from a better way to pray
A quote from a better way to pray
By
Andrew Womack
One day I was meditating on these exact verses from
MaTT 6: and Ps 100:.
I remember walking out and sitting down on my back porch. Here came Honey (my dog who was beaten with a chain by her previous owner) running across the yard at me. When she arrived within a few feet of where I sat, she rold over on her side and started whimpering. By this time I’d had enough of her antics, so I stood up and let her have it ! “Honey, one time I wish you would just come up, jump on me, and treat me like a normal dog would. Everybody who sees you thinks I beat you ! They believe I’m a mean master. I just get so embarrassed when people observe how you act toward me!”

Then the Lord spoke to my heart, “son, that’s exactly the way I feel about you. Just one time I wish you would approach Me saying ‘Daddy ! Father !’ and not talk about how sorry you are or how you know you don’t deserve My goodness and mercy. Just one time I’d like you to come into My presence and act like I love you.

02:19 pm: God LOVES you.
God LOVES you.
You are a special person to God.
God LOVES you with an unconditional LOVE.
When God thinks about you He only thinks good thoughts.
God gave us love, and a sound mind.
God wants you.
God wants to live within and through you.
God wants to demonstrate His great LOVE for you.
All you have to do is ask God to come into your life and Gods LOVE will flood and fill you heart and body with a LOVE that you can not understand.
Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith for you.

John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

Romans 8:37 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.
38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

1 John 4:15 Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God.
16 And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.

If you do not have a personal relationship with this God of Love and you would like to get to know Him the first step is to say a prayer.

Now read this aloud and remember that this is not a religious action but this is real in this reality that we are living in right now.

Pray

God I need you to come and live in and through me.
Jesus thank You for paying the price for my sin and thank you for coming into my life.
Thank you for filling me with the Holy Spirit.
God help me to turn my life around to Your ways and Your love flowing through me.
In the name of Jesus.

Now what you need to do is tell someone what you just did.
That just seals it and now be ready for the ride of your life.

The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost, be with you all. Amen.
To know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.

Now what you need to do is tell someone what you just did.
That just seals it and now be ready for the ride of your life.

01:13 pm: Holy Spirit
I would like your thoughts or comments about what I’ve put together below.

From what I see there are two times we can be filled with the Holy Spirit at salvation and then with fire.

Matthew 3:11 I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance: but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire:

He shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost
At the point when a person is saved just like the apostles had received the Holy Ghost after the resurrection but before Pentecost.

John 20:21 Then said Jesus to them again, Peace be unto you: as my Father hath sent me, even so send I you.
22 And when he had said this, he breathed on them, and saith unto them, receive ye the Holy Ghost:

When Jesus breathed on them they received the indwelling of the Holy Ghost.
This is what happens when you make the decision to follow Jesus and then the Holy Ghost moves in and indwells you and then you can say Jesus is the lord.

1 Corinthians 12:3 Wherefore I give you to understand, that no man speaking by the Spirit of God calleth Jesus accursed: and that no man can say that Jesus is the Lord, but by the Holy Ghost.

“but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem”

Luke 24:49 And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high.

Endued with power from on high is the fire.
Which came on Pentecost.

Acts 2:1 And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.
2 And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting.
3 And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them.
4 And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.

To summarize;
After resurrection when the time for salvation came by believing on Jesus and making Him the lord of your life had come and to receive the indwelling of the Holy Spirit which made you a new creation .
Latter they received the baptism of the Holy Spirit and power.
This opened the door for the gifts of the Holy Spirit to come in be active in the believers life.
Many people at the time of receiving the power would speak in tongues.

When Jesus walk on the planet He being the fullness of the God head He did not need the indwelling because He was already perfect.
But when he was baptized He receive the power of the Holy Spirit and after that He had to step to the side or move into the back ground and let the Holy Spirit live through and Guide and do the miracles ect. ect. As an example to us on how we ott to live.
A life totally given over to the life of the Holy Spirit.

To live this life as a Christian we need the indwelling and the power of the Holy Spirit in our life.

12:40 pm: The Cloud The Axe The Life
1 Corinthians 6:19: What? Know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?

“Know ye not that your body”
Body:
the whole physical structure and substance of a human being, the flesh or material substance, as opposed to the spirit

“is the temple of the Holy Ghost”
Temple:
anything viewed as the dwelling place of God

“which is in”
In:
contained or enclosed by; inside; within the room, in the envelope

“which is in you”
You:
the person to whom one is speaking or writing

“ye are not your own”
Jesus is the demonstration of God’s love, in that He paid the price for our sin and gave us His righteousness.
We have been bought, sealed, and delivered for the purpose of doing God’s will.

“which ye have of God”
The same Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead has taken up residence in our body.

We are the living temple of God.

So let’s trust His love for us and that He is a good God. We need to be doing what He has called us for and given Himself for.


2 Chronicles 5:13: “It came even to pass, as the trumpeters and singers were as one, to make one sound to be heard in praising and thanking the LORD; and when they lifted up their voice with the trumpets and cymbals and instruments of music, and praised the LORD, saying, For he is good; for his mercy endureth for ever: that then the house was filled with a cloud, even the house of the LORD;
Verse 14: So that the priests could not stand to minister by reason of the cloud: for the glory of the LORD had filled the house of God.”

“were as one, to make one sound to be heard in praising and thanking the LORD”

What He is saying here is, you need to put your mind, heart, soul and body the whole you into praising and worshipping God in the Spirit.

Jesus said:
Mark 12:30: And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.

Psalms 22:3: But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel.

We are the family of God

Romans 11:17: And if some of the branches be broken off, and thou, being a wild olive tree, were grafted in among them, and with them partakest of the root and fatness of the olive tree;

If you praise God in the temple what happens?

God says:

“praised the LORD, saying, For he is good; for his mercy endureth for ever: that then the house was filled with a cloud, even the house of the LORD”

God showed up in the house of the Lord and He came in a physical and tangible presence:

Tangible:
That can be touched or felt by touch; having actual form and substance

Physical:
Of the body as opposed to the mind

“So that the priests could not stand to minister by reason of the cloud”
The presence of God came in so strong that the power of God over whelmed the priests and they could not stand and they could not minister to God.

Question
Is this happening to you and your temple?

Is the power of God and his presence coming into you in an over whelming way and making you a whole, clean, and stable person?
Matthew 15:19 For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies:

Only God can clean a son or a daughters heart by his presences in power and that is why the psalmist said.

Psalms 51:10: Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.
Verse 11: Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me.
Verse 12: Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit.


“Create in me”
to cause to come into existence; bring into being
“a clean heart” Free from dirt, contamination, impurities, etc.; unsoiled; unstained free from disease, infection

“Renew” to make new or as if new again; make young, fresh, or strong again; bring back into good condition to give new spiritual strength

“a right spirit within me”
what is right, or just, lawful, morally good, proper, correct, etc.
that which a person has a just claim to; power, privilege, etc. that belongs to a person by law, nature, or tradition

Create in me a clean heart Free from dirt, contamination, impurities, free from disease and infection make me new young and fresh with new spiritual strength with power and privilege.

Once you have been touched by the power of His presence you will never be the same.

One day I was having one of those days, I was tired and work was getting me down, I was just not feeling very well.
I took a little time and took a small walk to seek the Lord for help.
I prayed neither for healing nor for strength but what I ask for was that I wanted to be real the real me before You and to be in your presence in power.
I love to be with You,
I love to walk and talk with You.
I continued to praise and worship.

All I can say is WOW and I can say it backwards WOW because God showed up in power and He imparted in me life.
As the psalmist said;
Verse 12: Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit.
I went back to my office and there was a joy and a good feeling like I have not felt be for.
It felt like God’s kind of life, a spark of newness.

Went you get into Gods presence in power you will never be the same.

The Psalmist was afraid that the presence of God could be taken away and this meant the joy of God’s salvation; would be gone and he would lose his free spirit.

God will heal your heart and your body and to make you fully a new person, body, soul and spirit and bring back the joy of your salvation and set your spirit free

Matthew 3:10: And now also the axe is laid unto the root of the trees: therefore every tree which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
Verse 11: I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance: but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire:

“And now also the axe is laid unto the root of the trees”

When you are born again the Holy Spirit takes up residence in your body and makes you a new creature.

You are just like a tree that has deep roots into your mind and heart that do not line up with word of God.

That is why you need to renew your mind.

Romans 12:2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

Roots:
The part of a plant, usually below the ground, that lacks nodes, shoots, and leaves, holds the plant in position, draws water and nourishment from the soil, and stores food.

Are you holding on to the old roots of the old man from a now past life in the world?

Roots like;

bitterness
loneliness
hopelessness
hate
being abused
disappointment
addiction
a rebel
stinginess
not trusting
envy
lust
lying
ect.

Matthew 15:18: But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart; and they defile the man.
Matthew 15:19: For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies:

You may not know what roots are making there ugly heads to pop up now and then that make life difficult for you and others around you.
But
The spirit knows.
Psalms 44:21 Shall not God search this out? for he knoweth the secrets of the heart.

Hebrews 4:12: For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

Luke 3:9 And now also the axe is laid unto the root of the trees: every tree therefore which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.

These roots go deep into our heart. But Jesus has laid the “AXE” to the bad roots, and through the Holy Spirit and the power of God’s presence, He will come and tear out the bad roots and start the healing process.

John 10:10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

The devil wants to destroy us, but Jesus wants us set free from all that will hinder our relationship with God.

And when He has taken the bad roots out, and you fill them with Him, you will have life more abundantly.

Just like after I had prayed my life was and is more abundant.
That is one of the gifts that Jesus came to give us.

Ephesians 4:8 Wherefore he saith, When he ascended up on high, he led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men.

John 14:27: Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

Jesus has promised you a peaceful heart nor a troubled heart and no fear and life more abundant for He is wonderful counselor.

Chapter 6

Days later

My limp was now gone and every thing was back to what you would call normal.
On a Wednesday night we had invited some friends over for time of studding some ancient script and to spend time getting into the Spirit.

My daughter was not upstairs with the rest of us but was in her room doing what ever teenage girls do.
We all were having a good time and the evening continued on without anything out of the normal.
It was getting late now and several guests had left and the one couple that remained sat and chit chatted with my wife and I.

My daughter came up stars to get what ever from the kitchen and said hi to all as she went down the stars to go back to her room.
She had not been out of her room for more than 5 minutes.

We all heard a scream that was coming from down stars.
It was my daughter and she ran up stars and told us that the ghost was back and had trashed her room.
We all followed her down and what we saw was an amazing display of chaos.

The curtains were torn from there hangers and now lad on the bed.
The box spring was no side turn sideways and upside down on top of the mattress which was off of the frame.
The two shelves on her walls were under the bed and all of the stuff that was on the shelves were scattered all over the room.
The dresser that had been at the other end of the room now laid on it’s face with all the drawers pulled out and dumped all over the room.
The room was a good example of chaos
Did I mention that the crucifix and pictures that were on the walls were scattered like every thing else.
Nothing was untouched.

The atmosphere in the room was that of some one laughing, a party, a festive time had been by all.

We all went upstairs and I felt it was time to act.
Time to use the authority that was given to us by the one that had beaten death and the grave.
We all got down on our knees in a circle and joined hands.

I called out to the atmosphere and said;
“Anyone that hath ears listen to this.
There was one that came down from above that was born as a man and lived the perfect live.
He was murdered by crucifixion for the sins of all men.
He was buried and on the third day was resurrected for mans justification and His name is Jesus Christ.

It was as if someone had put their hand on the side of my head and turned my head so I could see.
What I saw was a black figure In the shape of a man that was empty without any life but was alive.
He was bent over because he was about 1 foot higher that the ceiling.
He turned and looked at me and his head bent over father as of admitting defeat.
Then he turned towards the sliding glass door that lead to the deck and walked trough the door and faded out of sight as he walked into the back yard that was about 12 feet below the deck.

The rest of the time that we lived there not another sign of any ghost or manifestations of what I call demons.
There is now no place for them at that residence wile we lived there.

There are no ghosts
There are no disembody spirits
When a human dies they leave the earth
They do not linger
They do not have to finish any undone business

The only thing that is haunting earth are the fallen angels that were throne out of Heaven and put on our planet that we gave over to them by committing sin and being throne out of the garden.


There are demons that want us to think that there are ghosts because that will distract man from God and that is what they are all about.
Because the place that they are going to end up at is called the lake of fire that was not made for man but for them.

To obtain the authority over the demons there are three steps that every man must take on their own.

#1
Confess to someone with your mouth that Jesus is your Lord.
Believe in your heart that God raised Jesus from the dead.

#2
Get baptized with the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues.

#3
Get filled with the word of God.

Now go to www.theid.net/spirit.html and read and do as this book says.

OR
You can email me.
Put in The subject line NEW LIFE

PS:
If you cast a demon out in the name of Jesus without doing the three steps above the demon will come back with some of his friends and then your end is worse than your beginning and God help you.

The Dream

It was just like any other night nothing out of the ordinary.
Bed time came and I said my good nights and did all my go to bed stuff.
I set the alarm and turned out the light, rolled over and found the sleep that I needed.
I remember that nights sleep, I could have been a baby, so restful all was peaceful a good restorative sleep, the kind you only get now and then.

Yes this is enjoyable but not for long.

I found that my left foot and ankle started to hurt I did not understand and at that moment my sleep had taken a turn towards fit fullness.
I remember sitting up and finding my left foot was bound behind my right foot and I was not strong enough to undo the bindings.
I looked at my self and saw that I was dressed in a loin cloth and a white sheet thrown over my right shoulder and tied at my waist.

I looked around and I was slowly descending into a building not one that I have ever seen before.
The building was made out of stone the color of tan, orange, gold and white kind of mixed in the stone with out any mortar.
The floor which was coming closer and it was the same material.
There was a grand stair case that came down in a half circle from an upper room and the stairs were made of the same material.
I was inside the building now on the floor and it was cold to my bound feet and it was one room in the shape of a round turret about 60 feet across.

I could not see the ceiling but I new that there was an audience watching to see what would happen next.
All I could do was to hop and lean against the wall.
This is an arena a place of battle and I had one foot bound behind the other.
I knew that I was not in any condition to battle even with a white cuddly rabbit let alone anything else.

I was across from the stairs and then what materialized next to the stairs opposite from me was some one from not of this earth.
Appeared to be male.

About 6 foot tall, and about 4 feet wide with a head that is about 12 inches wide with a crown about his head made of thick leather with 3 inch spikes all around.
Thick leather about his shoulders covering his sides and chest and back also with a belt with 3 inch spikes all around.
Yes there were 3 inch spikes on his shoulders.
His hand had heavy leather gloves with leather covering on his for arms and yes with 3 inch spikes on his wrist.

His breathing was strong and he was posed to do battle and all I could do is hop around.
We moved in circles two or three times around the battle arena.
Let me tell you that a feeling of fear encompass me and I knew that I was going to be like a bug on a shield at 60 miles per hour.

Something caught my eye movement from the ceiling a man was descending he had long dark hair and was wearing a white robe.
When his feet touched the floor he walked over to me and put his hands on my shoulders and lifted me off the ground.
I could not feel any pressure on my shoulders and it was like we were floating across the arena to the stairs.
Up the stairs we floated and at the top there was a hall way with two jail like cells on each side.
We moved to the end cell on the left and the door opened with out either of us touching it.
Moving in to the cell he set me down and he turned and as he left the door closed and locked me in.
Back toward the stairs he moved and then out of sight as he went down the stairs.

Even though I was face to face with this man I never got a good look at his face.
He looked like a man but with out any real recognizable features.
All of a sudden a great white light came from top of the stairs and a loud deep scream and then all was silent.
The man dressed in white came back and the door of the cell opened and I stepped out and he was gone.

I was awake instantly in my bed and the feeling left by the dream was like a peace that I had never felt before.
The only other thing I took out of the dream was a sore left ankle and now I had a limp that lasted three days.

All in the house was quiet and peaceful the nightly reading could now continue without distraction.

Was this all over and the spirit gone?

Or was this the game plan for the up coming offensive?

Time will tell.
