Eat the Meat and Spit out the Bones

I would like to share this brother with you.  His understanding of GRACE vs. LAW is so clear and biblical.  He reveals Jesus to us in His preaching that you will never forget.  You have to hear him at least once. Like all teaching and preaching, we have to be discerning, learning to "eat the meat and spit out the bones."  I believe that you will find very little bones in this meat. What a blessing he has been to me and I pray he will be to you.This is one of his podcasts.

Mercy Triumphs over.Judgement

The other evening I was in a political discussion. Questions were being asked such as, "What do you think about the tragic weather patterns we are having in the America? Do you think that America is under judgement?  How do you feel about 9-11? Was it a judgement ?" As these questions were being asked,  I sat there thinking to myself, "Lord, help me!"

As the discussion continued and many honest opinions were expressed, thoughts started to flood my mind and spirit. I felt as if the Lord said, "My daughter, I love America, why would I destroy Her? I have blessed Her more than any other Nation and yet, She is still  stubborn and proud. As a result I have allowed  the 'destroyer', the devil  to release extreme weather patterns of destruction, NOT TO JUDGE HER, BUT TO SHOW HER MY MERCY. You don't want me to judge America.  No, I am showing her My mercy and taking away her blessings. How can I continue to bless a nation who turns Her back on My Son?,  I am a merciful and patient God, desiring that none should perish that all would come to repentance."

In the early thirties, I understand a Guru from India tried to get into  America, but at that time, the Guru could not enter.  He said that an opposing spirit was too strong, and he could not worship. He turned around and went back to India and waited for another twenty-five years, until his spirit was able to enter the country and Hinduism has been here ever since. Christianity was no longer the opposing power against the evil one.

 Satan may have taken prayer out of our schools, watered down the true gospel, and confused us as to the Constitution concerning religious freedom.  BUT Jesus said in Matthew 16:18 that  "He will build His church and "THE GATES OF HELL WILL NOT PREVAIL AGAINST IT."  ( Mathew 16:18) We can comfort ourselves in this truth.

Our future is secure in our Lord.  He who called us, is faithful to fulfill all of His promises.  We can rest and be at peace.  Our Lord loves us and He will see us through any difficulty that the Devil might throw at us.  Be at peace. We are children of the most High God  and He will stop at nothing to bring His blessings into our lives to share with others. Our Lord's love is so amazing. His "MERCY HAS TRIUMPHED  OVER OUR JUDGEMENT." We have been shown great mercy and as His children we will never know His wrath on sin. Jesus took our judgement and gave us His mercy, which we did not deserve.  Amazing.

God's Jealous Love

Have you ever desired a more intimate relationship with Jesus but He feels millions of miles away?  I have. I was a believer and for many years this deep longing had caused me to search the scriptures for some answers.

In my search to understand more, John 16:17 spoke to my heart, "I still have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now.  When the Spirit of truth comes, He will guide you into all the truth, for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak, and He will declare to you the things that are to come.  He will glorify me, for He will take what is mine and declare it to you.  All that the Father has is mine; therefore I said that He will take what is mine and declare it to you."

Jesus fulfilled that promise at Pentecost.  The Holy Spirit came in power and today we can NOW receive the Holy Spirit, by faith, and hear the Lord speaking to our hearts.

It is amazing. 1 John 2:17 says that the "Anointing that you received from Him abides in you, and  have no need that anyone should teach you.  But as His anointing teaches you about everything--and is true and  is no lie, just as it has taught you--abide in Him." I didn't even know that I had an anointing and that it was the Holy spirit who also sealed me in Christ when I was born again.(Ephesians 1:13) Isn't He wonderful? much happened when we were born again.

James 4:7 says,"The Lord JEALOUSLY YEARNS over the Spirit that He has made to dwell in us."  I know that there is no other person on earth that loves us that much. There are many excellent pastors, teachers and books to read, but there is only ONE BOOK inspired by God and ONE teacher who will never disagree with the Word of God or with His Spirit in me.  It speaks of intimacy, and of someone who deeply cares for my soul.The Holy Spirit will discern all truth and error and will lead us into all righteousness.

The Enemy is slick and he will try to blind our spiritual eyes from ever having a relationship with Jesus. But He can't, if we will ONLY believe.  Satan is done and our eyes are opened and we can see our wonderful Jesus more and more, high and lifted up, drawing all men unto Him.

Our God is so incredible. You will be amazed how the Lord is glorifying Himself through this young man. You will see the love of Jesus in His eyes as he speaks and embraces all those around him. You will want to hug him, too.
