"Anything can come along and make you feel good... tickle your fancy.... make you feel a "high", if you will. But if you're not careful, you can get so caught up in emotionalism (loose godly faith and trust), until any power/influence can fool you into thinking that the root of your feeling is of God.. or its "OK"... but the question is..what/who do you KNOW? because when the emotions fade/change,its what you KNOW that keeps your mind sane... its what you know that keeps u balanced.. its what you know that keeps you strong when the enemy tempts.. when pain and pressure come to "try" you,what is it that you KNOW.. do you KNOW who God is..do u know the "word"? what influence r u under.. emotion.. or Gods word??" ~Bro. Laron, Spirit of God

Be blessed in Jesus' Name,

This is setting the stage for the Holy Spirit to come down.
- You begin by repenting (outer court),
- Then you move to seeking God's Holy Spirit to come down (holy place),
- And thereafter God's Spirit has began to visit you, you really begin melting in His presence and abiding with Him (inner court, Holy of Holies)

All are excerpts from this article I'm reading: http://www.boundless.org/2005/answers/a0002415.cfm by John Thomas of Boundless.org.
To love is not to share all the same interests, but it is to value those the other person has.
If marriage is anything, it is a deep-level connection. ... Connecting at deeper levels develops over time as trust grows and as an individual feels they are in a safe place to share at that level.
Enjoying one another’s company is a great starting place for any relationship and obviously a requirement, but we can only talk about the weather for so long.
Conversations that touch at the level of emotions, ranging from joy to pain, are the ones that create heart connection.Remember what you’re doing: First, you’re trying to discern whether you’re in unity on core values and second, whether you can connect at the level of emotions.

This made me think of a very real event in my life. I remember hearing a story on the local news about a little girl who was abused, raped and kept several days by a man close to her. He abused her to the point of her being in a coma I believe. She was near death. They had been reporting on her story for several days now. I remember her story coming again upon the television. They were reporting live from the hospital down the road, following this little girls every move.
I remember the urge to go lay hands on her. Like, literally go put my hands on her and say a prayer. The live coverage was still broadcasting and I walk toward our kitchen window. My faith was on fire within me. I wanted to go to the hospital and go do this thing but I had no one to go with me. I knew this girl was to live. I needed someone to go with me!! Nobody of faith was nearby. I thought of my friend Shannon. She lives not to far from here. I did not call her. I know if she was around that she would go with me. And, she would be praying with me. The girl ended up dying that day.
I think within me. LORD, my faith was on FIRE!!! My faith was on fire!! This is what ministry is about. Two by two saith the Lord! TWO BY TWO!! Lord knows I should have been there, I couldn't go alone so I thought! God is GOOD and I desire to do mighty things in His Name! Lord be with your Best, Your special ones that they may go boldly! Go boldly!! And bring us a friend to come with us along the way!

This is the first time I'm hearing this song!! I looked it up after hearing it for a sec on the radio here. I have heard the church sing it once before. Turn this waaay UP, it sounds GOOOOD!

1. Instead of repenting these men chose to appear righteous to the people. http://bit.ly/gjo4Lm
2.Prophecy 119 - 2011 A Call To Repent Or Perish, YAH Has Your Number!!! http://t.co/yI4iuN2
3. So on February 24, 2011 pastor Wil spoke on Jeremiah 14:10-12, 13, 14-15. If you disregard the call to repent, nothing changes within you. You'll continue to go to church out of form and fashion, but regrettably there will be no inward change. Bless you if this is for you. 1. is to repent, 2. is to acknowledge [sin] through repentance and confession.
4. Now is the parable of the Marriage Feast found in Matthew 22. This came on yesterday.
2The kingdom of heaven is like unto a certain king, which made a marriage for his son,
3And sent forth his servants to call them that were bidden to the wedding: and they would not come.
4Again, he sent forth other servants, saying, Tell them which are bidden, Behold, I have prepared my dinner: my oxen and my fatlings are killed, and all things are ready: come unto the marriage.
5But they made light of it, and went their ways, one to his farm, another to his merchandise:
This scripture meant so much to me. As God is not stagnant, His words are neither. There are several revelations of this scripture. One as it relates to our lesson is that many are invited, but few choose to accept.
Don't make light, saints. There needs to be an alarm clock on our lives .. an alarm clock to wake us up from our slumber. God Abba we bless You this day. This day for Your Word, this day for Your son. Make not light of God's call. His hand is upon your life. You must answer His call.
Let us not be like the foolish men in Matthew 22:5 who made light of God's call on their lives.
Bless! And may God abide in you,

An excerpt from "Reversing the Marriage Implosion: The Covenant" by Dr. Robert Reccord, http://www.believe.com/articles/Relationships/Reversing-the-Marriage-Implosion-The-Covenant/
Enter With Your Eyes Open!
As marriages hurtle into the future before them, we must remind every couple to keep their eyes open for the needs and fears of the other. A wise, seasoned counselor told me years ago that the greatest need of women is security, and her greatest fear is insecurity. Conversely,the greatest need of a man is adequacy, and his greatest fear, inadequacy. If only my wife and I had been told this before we got married, not years later!
Within every wife, there is a little girl craving to hear that she is pretty, valued, treasured and loved. She can handle multiple moves, shaky finances, job difficulties and worse as long as she is relationally secure with her man. Every husband longs to hear, “I’m proud of you because…” He yearns to know he is adequate in his leadership. In conference after conference, women sit stunned when my wife asks men to lower their head and raise their hand on what they would prefer to hear from their wife: “I love you,” or “I’m proud of you.” “I’m proud of you” wins hands down (or up in this case). Even the makers of Viagra and Calais understand a man’s passionate desire to be adequate!
So, what implosions might be avoided if every couple walking toward the altar were clearly guided on the foundational need/fear of their potential mate? It would so clearly show how our IEDs (improvised explosive devices) of words and actions within marriage can rupture the infrastructure of our relationships and bring our homes crashing in around us.
Maybe right now is a good time for you to assess yourself and the needs of the loved one in your life. What do you see that you might not have seen before? What are you going to do about it?
Abba is good. Heh, heh, saw my eyes perk up a bit while reading this. Be blessed.

How Christians should pray for the sickby Karla Perry
We must remember that Jesus modeled the Christian life for us showing us what is possible when we live from His reality of intimacy with the Father. Jesus was certainly God, but Philippians 2 tells us that He gave up the equality with God to be made as man for us. His identity did not change, He was fully man and fully God, but for a while He lived as a man rightly related to God showing us who we are. Therefore, when someone needs healing we do as Jesus does, not as He did, but as He is doing.
We do not have to look up the Scripture and copy what Jesus did when He healed a blind mind, placing mud and spit in his eyes. However, we do need to do as Jesus is doing when we stand before a blind man. Maybe He is showing us to put our hands on his eyes, or maybe He is simply saying “see” or “be healed” or “eyes open.” His authority is in us when we are walking in His Kingdom which is our true abode.
Sometimes, we release breath, or lay hands upon the afflicted area where appropriate. Other times, we speak forth a release of healing telling bones to come into alignment, a new kidney to grow, a heart to pump normally, a back to straighten, or lungs to breathe. We may see a picture of something God wants us to do that may be pretty strange like when Jesus used mud and spit. It is also possible that God will reveal that there is an afflicting spirit that needs to leave.
Healing does not always happen instantly. It could begin and take a several days to complete. There is no normal standard for how it works. It does not always happen. While we can do the things Jesus did and greater, we are still learning and we have to face the times when people do not get healed completely or at all.
The important thing is not to make doctrines concerning our lack of power. Never should we blame the sick person. Just because Jesus told some “your faith has made you well” does not mean that a person is sick because they did not have enough faith. A dead person has no faith, and yet there are many account of a dead man coming to life.
One thing you can be sure of, if you don’t “pray” for people to get healed you won’t ever see anyone get healed. But you will start seeing healings take place if you step out and pray for that healing. Again, “pray” is a term overly utilized by Christians. Its prayer in a sense, but really it’s releasing His power that is resonating in you because of His Spirit flowing through you. Simply tell the blind eyes to open or tell the pain to leave the backache. Jesus gives us that authority to release healing, exercise that authority and watch what He does.
Talk about being a mouthpiece for God!!!! I felt God all upon this. Please print and share, there is a link below. The bolded points are what I really felt speaking to me the most.

And the multitudes that went before, and that followed, cried, saying, Hosanna to the son of David: Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord; Hosanna in the highest.
Blessed be the kingdom of our father David, that cometh in the name of the Lord: Hosanna in the highest.
I see the King of Glory
Coming on the clouds with fire
The whole earth shakes
The whole earth shakes
I see His love and mercy
Washing over all our sin
The people sing
The people sing
Hosanna in the Highest [x2]
I see a generation
Rising up to take their place
With selfless faith
With selfless faith
I see a near revival
Stirring as we pray and seek
We're on our knees
We're on our knees
Heal my heart and make it clean
Open up my eyes to the things unseen
Show me how to love like You have loved me
Break my heart for what breaks Yours
Everything I am for Your kingdoms cause
As I walk from Earth into
Hosanna in the HighestWord-Filled Wednesday

I never had any idea that this is what the "Charismatic" denomination was and is, although you probably could infer its meaning from just the definition of this word alone. Now in our political age, we see "Charismatic" as "our president," Martin Luther King Jr, or some similar figure who speaks smooth and convincing words. Never did I realize there was a "Charismatic" denomination ... I did not look at it intently any way. I would see the option, like on a check-box or something, but never did I know what it implied.
Very good to know that Charismatic denomination's two main components are speaking in tongues and faith healing. This may be cause for fear, however, because charismatics (not "charismatics" as in "people," but the act of charisma-- CHARISMATICS) do seem like they would involve irrational, unlikely, and non-conventional doings. Hm. Daunting. Yet, this is what I am passionate about; my new-found word thanks to this book-- "faith healing," miracles, laying of hands, LANGUAGE. So we have Pentecostal/Holiness, Apostolic ... and now "Charismatic."
It seems like much of what we should be reading, and much of what we should know is lost in books. Lost in books in that no one is reading them, no one is passing the information along. If you do not read the books, the information will remain hidden. Tonight I learned a new word, "GLOSSOLALIA." This is pretty much a code-word for THE ACT OF SPEAKING IN TONGUES. ... ahem, an "academic term." It comes from the Greek for "tongue speaking." So I began my search for books on glossolalia. Call me a conspiracist, but everything is hidden. How do we know what to search for if we don't search it out?
