Dear Partners, Friends and Family
"But understand this, that in the last days will come (set in) perilous times of great stress and trouble [hard to deal with and hard to bear]." 2 Timothy 3:1 Amp Bible
Peace for spirit, soul (mind, will and emotions) and body is a wonderful blessing from God to all who receive Christ and rightfully know and understand what Jesus did for them at His crucifixion, burial and resurrection.
The word "disease" we associate with the body not being well, has its root meaning as "no-peace", or "dis-ease", or "not at ease". The physical application regarding sickness being in the body is "not at peace".
No matter what happens in the nation God's Word still works and people receive the healing Jesus purchased for them when He bore the stripes on His back. (1 Peter 2:24). On a personal note, as I was ministering recently and laid hands on the sick they were healed! Why? Because His Word is alive today just as it was when Jesus was on the earth.
People look for peace in many of the diversions life can offer. They look for peace because they don't have it. If Christians would learn from Jesus they would know they have peace with
"Oh", you say, "If only you knew what I have to put up with ". Well, if God's peace only works for us when everything is fine, we are all in a mess. The truth is, God's peace is for the needs of our lives down here on the earth that we might overcome and be successful like Jesus and live in victory twenty-four hours a day. Jesus did. We can too, according to Jesus. Jesus lived in peace and we can too. See John 16:33 and 1 John 5:4 & 5.
So many Christians get shaken by the circumstances of life and are living defeated lives because they are learning the ways of the system of this world. No wonder they have no peace. Jesus said, "Learn of Me" (Matthew 11:28 and 29). That means we must be believers who are into the Word of God. Daily meditate on the words of Jesus because our Bible is God speaking to us. You now know where to go and get His peace and activate it in your lives - by speaking the Word!
Keep your faith fed daily. Starve your doubts and unbelief. None of us have any right to be subject to the prince of darkness. Jesus died to make us free from the power of sin, gloom and darkness of the Satanic kingdom. It does not belong to us. When we look out on this nation we see God's will is not being done on every hand. Well, we have news for the devil, he is not going to prevail in this land or any nation. AMEN! In answer to the faith and prayers of God's people revival is coming to the nations.
Folks, get excited. Pray earnestly, changes are already taking place. Don't prepare for defeat or failure. You are not in that kingdom. Get ready for the power of the Holy Spirit to manifest complete victory in your lives. Receive it!
"What shall we say to all this? If God is for us, who can be against us? [Who can be our foe, if God is on our side?]" Romans 8:31 Amp Bible
Or as Gordon puts it: CASE CLOSED!
The only thing that will stop God working in you and me is not believing and acting on what He said in His Word.
We are always to glad to hear from you!
Love in Him
