“If I were the devil, I’d put Jesus on the cross and leave Him there.”~priest

I am on the hunt. I want to be sold out for God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. Now if I knew what that meant, I’d do it.  I figure Paul is as about as sold out as a guy can get. Of course  sold out doesn’t get any better than Jesus, but Paul did most of the writing. I’ll start there.

The thought comes to mind possibly my spiritual impotence is from leaving Christ on the Cross.  When Paul writes a letter he starts with:

“to the assembly of the Thessalonians in God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ: Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ”.

He specifically addresses TWO God entities. First, he addresses God the Father and then God the Son. He is referencing BOTH, not just God and not just Jesus. There has to be a reason. Could it be he is acknowledging the source of his power. He says he gives thanks to God remembering the work is in Jesus. It is obvious, Paul has not left Jesus on the cross.

Suppose I was some masterminded villain with a plan to make all of you impotent in your Christian walk. Where would I start? The first thing I think I’d do would be to inspire some poor fools to build miniature crosses with Jesus nailed to them. Then, I’d mass market them and make it fashionable to wear them as an idol around people’s necks. But, I wouldn’t stop there.

I’d have some other fools paint pretty pictures of Jesus on the cross and have everyone hang them in their living rooms. But I wouldn’t stop there. I’d build bobble headed dolls with Jesus on the cross. They can put them in their cars and watch Jesus bobble on the cross as the cars hit chuck holes. Well, I’ll stop there. I haven’t actually got the bobble headed Jesus to market, yet. But, maybe by Christmas.

That would really be in Jesus face.

Are you guilty of buying into the trap of the evil ones? Are you impotent because you worship the one hanging on the cross and left him there? Or are you impotent like me, because you have neglected the one who died for you, beat death and rose again?

It is not too late to change your destiny. It is not too late to add the power of Jesus in your Christian walk. Destroy the idols. Take Jesus off the cross and put Him in your heart. Pray!

Dancing with Demons… How ’bout you?

I have a Bible believing friend who recently had major surgery. He ended up in ICU for a few days while he, the doctors and God sorted things out. 

He said during the time he was in ICU, he quit caring whether he lived or died.  It was during this time the dark demons began dancing in the peripheral of his vision.  He could physically see their presence.  He said it was the darkest of moments he had ever experienced.  He said the depression that accompanied the demons, was unbelievably bad.  My friend said he never wants to experience that again.

Toward the end of the stay in ICU, a doctor walked in and asked who was a believer?  My friend said it was he.  Very quickly the not caring about life and death disappeared and he was back to caring deeply about his friends and family.  That is a God Spot!

It is a pretty incredible story.  It makes me wonder if there are other ICU experiences, other friends would like to share?  You can post anonymously if you wish.   God bless.

Also "my friend" if I got anything wrong in the account, shoot me an email and I'll fix it.

When you break a rule, sometimes it’s best to keep your head down….

RULE BREAKER #1: Jesus said, “Get up, take your bedroll, start
walking.” The man was healed on the spot.

RULE BREAKER #2: He picked up his bedroll and walked off. That day
happened to be the Sabbath.

BUSTED: The Jews stopped the healed man and said, “It’s the Sabbath.
You can’t carry your bedroll around. It’s against the rules.” But he
told them, “The man who made me well told me to. He said, ‘Take your
bedroll and start walking.'” They asked, “Who gave you the order to
take it up and start walking?”

KEEP YOUR HEAD DOWN: But the healed man didn’t know, for Jesus had
slipped away into the crowd.
