Daily Dose… Go to church or not to go to church?

Lionel Ritchie said it best ” Easy like Sunday morning…” I know that shows my age, but in real life, there is not much easy about Sunday morning! The sun is shining, I’ve got stuff to do that didn’t get done yesterday, I work all week, pastor goes a bit too long, the seats are hard, the air too cold, and the music is too loud! There are lots of excuses not to go. So we stay home I mean ” hey it’s me and Jesus” well that’s fine but the reality is one that you have not been healed mowing the grass. You have not been set free out on the lake. Your pain or sickness has not been removed as you work on the deck, the garden, the boat etc… Not saying it couldn’t be but it has not! Proverbs 4 says “My son attend to my words, incline thine ears to my sayings, let them not depart from thine eyes, keep them in the midst of thine heart, for they( Gods words) are LIFE unto those that FIND them and Health or MEDICINE TO ALL YOUR FLESH. ” get yourself into a place today where the word is preached, as you do, health is coming into you. Receive it, expect it, go in for that treatment today. The yard will wait, the boat will float, but your health… Well, if you don’t have that then you’ve got nothing. Is it worth a couple hours? Yep I promise you it is.

Daily Dose… Miracles, you can’t afford them!

Money for miracles? It really, really ticks me off to turn through “Christian” tv and see some $3000 suit preaching and I quote, “Only a fool would think the you can buy a miracle, but as you send in your $333 seed we are gonna pray for you…” WHAT? All in the same breath! “Buy this miracle spring water…” “Purchase these toothpicks made from the wood from the cross of Jesus…” Come on! The bottom line is this: Miracles were already paid for by the sacrifice of Jesus so you couldnt afford to BUY one! What’s a life worth? Jesus purchase all you need to be set free. Don’t give into these stupid gimmicks. Simon in Acts 8 thought he could buy the power to lay hands on people to receive the Holy Ghost. Peter was quick to tell him that he could burn with his money!
Just get in the word and believe. No need for money exchange. The price is paid in full!

Daily Dose… Gods word is medicine.

Proverbs 4:20-22 gives us a prescription that will set you free from pain, sickness, diseases and even death itself! It not only gives us a prescription but it also gives you the instruction on how to take this medicine. According to the Strongs Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible, the Hebrew word in vrs 22 translated health actually means medicine. Gods words are MEDICINE to your flesh! These passages of scripture give you all you need to be able to take this word and benefit from it. How do you take this word? 1. Attend to it, or put it first. 2. Listen to it. 3. Look at it. 4. Keep it in the midst of your heart. Then when taken properly, it brings health to your flesh.

Daily dose. The blind to see.

In Matthew 11 John sent his disciples to go see if this Jesus was who He really claimed to be. When they asked Him, He answered them with a list of the miracles that He did. He starts out with, “…the blind receive their sight…” Now I have heard many times in our day and age that what Jesus does is that ” He opens the eyes of the blind, spiritually.” No, that’s not what He is talking about. Doctrines teach that Jesus heals spirits not bodies. Strange, I never have seen that in the Bible! He addresses how to take care of the spirit man and how to make it new, but when it comes to healing, it was on flesh and bone, not your spirit!
Do not try to do away with the miraculous! It is still just as much a part of Jesus ministry as is the New Birth. When Jesus says He causes the blind to see, that is exactly what He means and not one time did He say that He would quit doing so!
The cane you see in the picture is from Linda Sanchez. “I once was blind, but now I see!”

Daily Dose. Allergies…

We know that this time of year, as the plants begin to bloom, leaves begin to form and grass begins to grow, so comes the pollen!
The world has gone from calling this time of year, “Spring” to calling it, “Allergy season”. Many suffer with red, itching eyes, running noses, sneezing, sore throats, and lung issues. We take pill after pill to try and combat these issues but it usually just pushes them back just enough to get through the day.
God has placed on the inside of every human an immune system to combat such issues. Time to super charge that immune system and command it to do its job! Say this 3 times a day, ” My immune system grows stronger day by day. I speak life to my immune system. I forbid confusion in my immune system. The same spirit that raised Christ from the dead dwells in me and quickens my immune system with the life and wisdom of God which guards the life and health of my body.”
It’s not “Allergy season” but rather “Healing season” !!!! Take that prescription and see what happens.

Daily Dose…Boston.

When something like the Boston bombings happen we often run through the range of emotions. Confusion, fear, sorrow and ultimately ANGER! In Ephesians 4:26-27 it says, ” If you become angry, do not let your anger lead you into sin, do not stay angry all day. Don’t give the devil a chance.” Notice that it does not say, ” Don’t be angry?” No, I say be very angry! But direct that anger toward justice! Pray angry! What I mean is, demand justice from our God. Demand truth from our God, demand that these who are responsible are captured and that full punishment is handed to them. Pray that all the stupid politics that come with something like this fall to the side. I’m already tired of hearing how its the ” Right winged, bible loving, gun toting new revolution.” Pray that truth prevails. Be ANGRY but direct that anger in the right direction because the bottom line is this: There is a battle going on in the spirit realm, the classic battle of Good verses evil. Don’t listen to the idiots that are going to try and somehow pin this on God as His judgement for a sinful nation, gays, sinners, disobedience etc… John 10:10 says the THEIF comes not but for to steal, kill and destroy! Who? The THEIF! Is God a THEIF! No, that’s the devil. Be angry but do not let that anger cloud your good judgement. Let that anger drive you to your knees to the ONLY ONE who can do something about it! Turn to God today for your comfort and peace and cry out to Him for justice! It shall be served.

Daily Dose…Keep your mouth shut!

2nd Corinthians 4:13, “We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore I have spoken, we also believe, and therefore speak.”
We have that same spirit of faith. But, sometimes we let our mouths override everything else and when we do that, we begin to ramble on and on. There are times that we get scared, desperate and just flat out mad and we can speak scripture in a way that we are throwing it up to God hoping something might stick. That’s just not gonna work. This scripture gives us some great insight on how to get prayer answered, but not just prayer, it shows us how to confess and get results.
We having that same spirit of faith, according as it is written. Faith comes from the word of God ( Romans 10:17) as it is written. We all have the word of God available and can have that same spirit of faith in that word from God but here is the clue on getting results: I BELIEVED…. THEN I spoke. We often speak trying to convince ourselves. Get in the word, get it settled in your heart. If God said it, then that settles it! Once you get it in you and believe, then open up that mouth and speak forth that truth in faith and know that it is on its way to you!

Daily Dose. Say what???

Hebrews 10:23, “Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering, for He is faithful that promised.” We have been accused of being that,” name it and claim it, blab it and grab it, confess it and possess it.” Bunch. Well, yes we are! We just say what God says. We are just crazy enough to take God at His word. God is faithful to fulfill every promise in His word. So why wouldn’t we just expect Him to do just that? So when asked what it is that we think about any given situation, we don’t have the need to look at current circumstances to answer, but we look to the word of God to answer the question. I much rather have what He says I can have then having what my body says I have!!! Stop saying what you’ve got and start saying what you want! That’s how you get set free! Say what God says and you will find your body responding accordingly!

Daily Dose… Burger King Christian?

Burger King, Have it your way! That may be all well and good when you are hungry for a burger but I’ve got to say, if you hunger to be set free from sickness or diseases, you are gonna need to do it GODS WAY! We often settle into a level of comfort when it comes to being ministered to. If a minister has a prayer line or you have come to someone asking for prayer, we have no problem with them saying a prayer over us or for us. We know the Bible talks about praying the prayer of faith and we all know the power of prayer. We may come to the minister and ask to have hands laid on us for healing, again, having an understanding that it is scriptural because it says that believers will lay hands on the sick and they shall recover. These two methods, although biblical for sure, are not the only methods available BUT most only seek these two because we have settled into a level of comfort in them. If we came into a healing meeting where people were getting spit on, fingers stuck in their ears, mud rubbed on their faces and spitting and touching tongues, I dare to say, number one, we would run out of the place and question if that was of God and two, we would probably kick that minister out of our church because that just can’t be right. BURGER KING CHRISTIANS. Wanting to tell God how to heal them. Jesus used these spitting and mud methods at the request of His Father God! And the results? Healed !!! In 2nd Kings 5 there is a great story of Naaman the leper who also wanted it HIS WAY. He was told how to be set free but he had come to a level of comfort in a preconceived idea of how it was going to go. He got angry and had it not been for a level headed servant, he would had missed out on his miracle because he boxed God into a method that suited his comfort. No, there are times that it will be as easy as laying on hands or praying but there are times you may be asked to go dip! Don’t allow your level of comfort to keep you from your miracle! Just do as The Lord instructs and you can be set free in no time!
Read 2nd Kings 5 today.
