“God’s Word or the Worlds Word”

WORDS-02

Psalm 33:6 By the word of the Lord the heavens were made, and all the host of them by the breath of His mouth.

Isaiah 55:11 So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; it shall not return to Me void, but it shall accomplish what I please, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.

It appears to me that this verse in Isaiah 55 also applies to us as individuals. I have seen so many that are continually sick, saying that they can never seem to get over being sick and that seems to be their lot in life. I also see so many who are constant complainers who never seem to be able to get out of the way of something going wrong in their lives. I remember once when I was in my early twenties that it seemed to be that I would have strep throat almost like clockwork every six months. I had just recently come to know this God of Creation and was asking myself what benefit it was to me to be continually battling strep throat. I remember deciding that I was tired of that scenario and started confessing with my mouth that I would never have strep throat ever again and from that moment on, I have never had that disease ever again and that was 50 some odd years ago that I came to that decision and conclusion.

Recently, back in 2001, I came down with cancer and half way through the radiation and chemo treatment, I had a vision that said I was clean. The next day, when I went to the hospital for the treatment, I said that I would no longer be taking their treatment. Three months later, I had a CT scan and the result was that I still had the cancer but that it had not progressed or diminished. I would have another scan in two months and the result of that was that I was clean, healed of the cancer and have been so for the past sixteen years.

I am at this time speaking forth the healing of my eyes from wet macular degeneration. I know that I am healed and expect to be able to broadcast that healing in the coming weeks. I am continually confessing with my mouth that I am healed since the Word of God is voice activated and will not return to me void. (Isaiah 55:11) …….. Stay tuned.

“Yet…..Another Dream”

Dreams - Joel 2-28Joel 2:28 “And it shall come to pass afterward that I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh; your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions.

Yes, yet another dream as the scriptures proclaim about old men: I was in a rugged mountainous forest and I could see in the distance at the top of a small mountain, yet much higher than a very high hill but probably accessible in a day or twos journey. As I climbed up this forested mountain, I could see at the top, stone figures of what looked like angels. When I arrived, I grabbed hold of the stone work and slid my hand over the top of one of the figures expecting to find a treasure. I was fairly careful as I did not want to topple the figure over or be surprised by some hidden venomous creature. There was nothing there except some sand and dust. As I moved around the figures, there were two or three stone angels, I came upon an area of lush beauty with people in bright colors dancing and enjoying the day as there was a banquet taking place with festivities. I remember seeing one girl who had just come out of a spring of water and being exhilarated at the fact that she had just turned eight years old. Everyone was so very happy for her and the party continued. I was, as usual with a camera and had just been told that this was a very special day, the name of which I did not really catch, but important none the less as there would be signs in the heavens with colored clouds and shapes. As I stood on a small hillside there, through the trees, I could see the clouds being whipped around into shapes of people in bright colors. I started taking pictures and people kept getting in the way of a clear view. I kept moving around but by the time I was in a good position, the show was over. Then I noticed that there were many flowers in the area the variety of which I had never seen before but extremely beautiful, lots of white and yellows. I remember thinking I hope I do not run out of film but then realized I had a digital camera of the larger format, like a Rolleiflex or Hasselblad.

I had awakened a couple of times during this lengthy dream but the dream always continued as I fell back asleep until it was time to rise in the morning. I felt that I must write this dream down for whatever it may mean. If anyone has any kind of interpretation for me, I should be blessed to hear.

“Who’s Driving My Vehicle?”

Romans 8:9a you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you. 
I had a dream many years ago, probably forty-five or so years ago. In this dream, I was driving my Cadillac down a fairly steep incline in the winter, in Maine, USA. Since the road was slippery and hadn’t been sanded yet, I was being very careful as to the use of the brake. Anyone who has ever driven on a slippery, icy road knows what I am talking about. As I carefully moved down this hill, I heard a voice from the back seat asking if He could drive instead of me. I made all kinds of reasons why I had to be the driver because of my familiarity with both the car and the conditions, but again came the question, “Can I drive now?” At this point in the dream, I realized that the voice was coming from the God of Creation. I also realized that He knew far better than I about the car and the road conditions. Now it only took a couple of moments before I decided that I would let Him drive and actually found myself sitting in the back seat and He had taken control.
That was a very powerful dream at the time and I recall it often when I am in somewhat serious circumstances. Today is one of those times and I realize that I must relinquish control of my life into His hands. I need to be moved by His Spirit and not my puny understanding of all that is going on around me. He can see far better than I and this is what makes that “Born Again” experience and infilling of the Holy Spirit so very valuable as we move through the mine field of this life. I also realize that anyone who has not had that “Born Again” experience with the God of Creation as yet, has not the faintest idea of this reality and power which we, as believers (followers of the true Messiah, Yeshua/Jesus) have within us. To them, it is foolishness, just as the written Word says, but they are the ones who are perishing and have no real hope in the world.
