I've been writing a couple of books, that's why I haven't done any writes for a while or two.

A lot has happened between pages, as I have been praying with people all over the place, even on the Internet. Many have been healed as well. I believe that every single one that we pray for in Jesus' name IS healed. I really do. Some people simply give up trusting God before the manifestation of the healing comes.
I used to say "not all get healed", but I repent for saying that. Jesus commands us to heal the sick, not just some of them. He would not tell us to do it unless He means it!
Today I felt led to go to a neighboring city. When I was in a bookstore the anointing fell on me, so my body started to jerk a lot as it does when the tremendous power of the anointing hits me. Then I explained to the clerk what was going on and that I was not in need of an ambulance :-) After a few minutes another lady asked me if I could pray for her which I did. I could tell that the Lord did things in the Spirit for her.
It's weird how some people, even Christians have com so far from the spiritual life they could have in Christ that they don't have a clue what's going on when a person is hit by the anointing! Even a manager of a church once walked up to me saying "this power could be from any source". I thought that was a pretty silly remark. He should have been able to discern where the power was coming from, since he also is an intercessor, but alas...
If we want to live exciting lives with the Lord, we have to live pure lives. If we are stuck in front of the TV we won't know what is going on! We can't hear Holy Spirit if our mind is full of earthly things. I got rid of my TV, and all the other worldly junk as well. I don't miss a thing, God fills all my needs and boy am I happy and at peace.
You can have a wonderful stress free life xtoo, if you take God seriously!

See you on Facebook!
PS. Check out the prayer at the bottom of the page if you want to get to know Lord Jesus right now!
If you would like to try Jesus for yourself, say this prayer from your heart, it will change your life! God loves you, just as He loves every man who walks this Earth!
Rom 10:9 because if thou shalt confess with thy mouth Jesus [as] Lord, and shalt believe in thy heart that God raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved:
"Heavenly Father, forgive me my sins. Jesus I believe that you are the only son of God and that you died in my place, please save me now, come into my heart, and take over my life. Amen".
If you seriously said the prayer, you are saved! For we are save by grace and nothing else, we can come as we are! Now thank Jesus for saving you.
The Bible tells us to work hard on our salvation, this does not mean that we are to run around doing good, but that we should obey Holy Spirit as He speaks to us! We should also keep the commandments of God and the commands of Jesus Christ, to preach the Gospel, heal the sick and cast out demons. We also have authority over death (in Jesus name), so we can wake people from the dead whenever Holy Spirit tells us to do so.
Welcome to the family! Check out god.TV on TV or the Internet, it is full of good spiritual guidance. xpmedia.com is very good too. Your life will change for the better!
(Naturally, not all preachers are good, just because they are on god.TV), use your brain as you watch, compare what they say, to see if it lines up with God's Word! Another very important thing: we should never criticize our sisters and brothers outside the church! If we feel that we have to correct somebody, it HAS to happen in church and not publicly. We should never launder our differences before the world, that is stupid according to Gods word!
There are some prosperity preachers whose messages are unsound.
God didn't intend for all of us to become filthy rich on Earth. Naturally, there might be some generous people on Earth, who may be blessed in this way, since God treats us all individually. But I don't believe for a second, that all Christians are meant to roll in cash...simply for our own pleasures. That would be pointless and silly.
I believe that we are supposed to help each other and be generous.
I don't believe that we should hoard our money in the bank, but to put it to good use. God will bless those who think of others, like the famous painter Van Gogh did. He gave his money etc. to the poor miners of Borinage, where he worked as an evangelist (between paintings). This is another fact, which is rarely (if ever) mentioned in art books due to our atheistic society.
Don't look down on rich people (or anybody else), God blesses whom He pleases.
Here's another side to prosperity: Job the incredibly rich man.
We read in the Old Testament how he was tested by the devil and lost everything. Because he was faithful to the Lord, everything was restored to him + he became filthy rich :-) Why? Because God blessed him.
Rom 10:13 for, Whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved."
Naturally, your life needs to change, if you've received Christ. We can't go on living in sin, like we did before we met God. But anyway, everything starts with the little prayer. It has worked for me and many of my friends. Let God take over, and don't fret, He will take care of you, trust the Lord!
You are now ready to receive Mr. Holy Spirit (if He hasn't already descended on you)! He is a person, sent by God to be your Helper. Spirit filled born again Christians can pray for you to receive Him. Your life will never be the same!
I call Him Mr. Holy Spirit sometimes, because most people don't seem to know that He is a person as well as Spirit.
Holy Spirit will give you a prayer language, so if you feel like there's something bubbling inside you, just open your mouth and speak whatever sounds Holy Spirit is giving you. The prayer language is called "tongues", it can be a Heavenly language or an earthly one, it all depends. I have many different ones, I've noticed that it changes a lot, from time to time. One Finnish girl that I prayed for received english as her prayer language, go figure.
Some people even claim that you can't pray or talk to Holy Spirit, I beg to differ. God the Father, Jesus and Holy Spirit are ONE, so you can pray to any one of the three.
But it's logical to pray to the Father in Jesus' name. When I pray for people, Holy Spirit and I have an ongoing dialogue during prayer. We speak to each other all day, but even more intensely during prayer, since He then directs me.
Mar 16:17 And these signs shall accompany them that believe: in my name shall they cast out demons; they shall speak with new tongues;
Tts 3:5 not by works [done] in righteousness, which we did ourselves, but according to his mercy he saved us, through the washing of regeneration and renewing of Holy Spirit,

PS, I sometimes highlight words in the scriptures that I quote. Always check your own Bible to confirm God's word!

I'm not trying to put anyone down with my Write, I'm just trying to convey what God has put on my heart I also feel that that life is too short, to just shut up and go with the flow, when people suffer under all kinds of bondage, and could in fact be set free in Christ.
If you find my write helpful, or disgusting in any way please let me know, you can drop me an e-mail. Remember to use a correct "subject" so that my spam turkey won't gobble it down.
