Blessings


It Is Written, 1 John 5:20, and we know that the Son of God has come and has given us an understanding that we may know Him who is true;  and we are in Him who is true, in His son Jesus Christ.  This is the true God and eternal.
If you are a fairly regular reader of these blogs, you have undoubtedly noticed that the subjects of salvation, doing things God's way, and divine healing are mentioned quite often.
These subjects are so important to each person, that they cannot be mentioned enough.  One of the fruits of the Holy Spirit is love.  Love takes a chance of offending someone with the constant repetition.  The Holy Spirit put that message on my heart, because the Lord God doesn't want anyone to perish but to have eternal life.
As we know salvation comes through what Jesus did on the cross.  By His stripes we were healed, which leads to divine healing.  Divine healing is probably the hardest thing for some people to grasp.  I am now going to give you a true story, of what is happening in my life right now.
A couple of weeks ago my wife went to see an orthopedic specialist because of severe pains in her knees.  He took x-rays and told her that both knees and her right hip must be replaced.
We prayed about whether to put our trust in God for divine healing, or whether we should go with the surgery.  We opted to go with divine healing because we trust that God will keep His promise.  satan kept trying to discourage my wife with every bit of negativity he could come up with.
She kept telling satan that he is a liar.  One morning a week or so ago, she told me she was being attacked more than usual.  At that moment the Holy Spirit put on my heart what to tell her. I said, "if satan says anything, we know he is a liar, so the exact opposite must be true." satan is confirming your healing.
We have witnessed a number of healings in the past.  We decided that we definitely are standing on the Word of God because the Word of God says by Jesus stripes we were healed.  So we prayed in the name of Jesus and believed for the healing.  Once we did that, in our hearts we received the healing.  The manifestation of that healing is taking place as I write this.
Faith is that what the Word says is true.  Whether you talk about salvation, divine healing, or any other promise of God, it is true because He cannot lie.  I know it is hard for some people to believe that salvation does not require works, or that divine healing still takes place the same as it did during Jesus time on earth, but that doesn't mean it isn't true.
Everything in these blogs, I feel are directed by the Holy Spirit, because someone, somewhere, needs to hear.  People need to know about God, no matter where in the world they live.
The rest of the series I started yesterday, will continue tomorrow.  I just felt an urgency about passing this information on to whoever needed to hear it. Have a blessed day.  Praise the Lord!
Remember Jesus Loves You
Prayer of Salvation
Lord Jesus, I thank you for what you did on the cross for me.  Your blood washed away all my sins, by your stripes I was healed, your death and resurrection brought me salvation.  Please forgive my sins, and come into my heart as my personal Savior.
Thank You Lord
Amen
