I am weeping as I write this. I fear for The Body of Christ when we have more faith in doctors and pills than in the healing virtue and love of Christ. I am certainly not against doctors or medicine. I go to the doctors and take medicine.

But, when a vision is cast to go into the highways and by-ways to bring in those in most need of a physicians to be Healed by Christ, and it is somehow considered "extreme'" to believe that Jesus may actually heal them miraculously, we have fallen so far.

In the gospels they brought the sick from cities all around to be healed by Jesus and all were healed. In ACTS they brought the sick from cities all around and all were healed.

So yes, I am an extremist, I really believe that Jesus can still heal a body and soul miraculously, in an instant, without a doctors help or a pill. I believe that Jesus is greater than the devils and the pain that has caused so many so much torment. If that makes me an extremist. The I am proud to say! I am an extremist!

YES! I believe that if the devil can stain a soul by a foul act of sin while a person is just a child and set their life down a path of addiction and abuse. That JESUS CHRIST can bring an instant healing and undo all the Devil has done! If that makes me an extremist...Then tattoo that label on my forehead because I am proud of it.

And if believing that the reason the church doesn't exert more power over the deeds of the enemy and doesn't set more of those that are trapped in deep darkness free is BECAUSE WE HAVE MORE FAITH IN DOCTORS AND PILLS THAN WE HAVE IN JESUS, makes me an extremist then put me right down with all those people that dared to believe that if they brought their sick from all around and laid them at the feet of Jesus, He would heal them instantly and completely.

Put me with the extremist Jesus who set the madman free that had the legion..Today that man would be locked in a cell and filled with drugs, because it is extreme to think somebody so bound could be freed in a moment, by Jesus.

Put me with the extremist father that dared to believe that Jesus could heal his son from seizures and a devil that would caused him to try and kill himself. How dare he believe such a thing. Today that boy would be ramp on pills and sitting in an institution under medical care somewhere. And that is if these poor folk were in a western country with medical care.

Matter of fact every Apostle and Prophet of The Bible was an extremist I guess. All the accounts in the Gospels were actions of silly extremist. All the miracles of Jesus, extreme. All the healing and miracles in The Book of ACTS, just things performed by uneducated, foolish extremist that didn't have the medical knowledge and wisdom we have today.

I hope any one that reads this gets my point. We better start believing in The REAL POWER of God. Not something we pray about,sing about and talk about. I mean the Power of The Gospel, The REAL Power of The Blood! The REAL Power of The WORD!

Now listen, you need a doctor, go to one. If your kid needs a doctor go to one. The church isn't a medical complex and we are not doctors. Let the doctors take care of the natural, let us focus on believing that Jesus can still heal, so there is no need for the pill anymore.

Come LORD Jesus COME!

My Heart Is Heavy

My Heart has been heavy tonight, my spirit searching for the Pastors and Missionaries that are serving in the hard places of the earth. I want to weep for them, intercede for them, however I find witin myself a struggle.

From the deepest part of my spirit man there is a righteous indignation that I can not find a way to express that doesnt cross the lines of protocol and submission. So I will just ask the questions that stirs in me everytime I see a plea from a Pastor or missionary to send recources or food to hurting and dying brothers and sisters in Christ. The questions that stir in me when I see a minister that can in a moment be killed for his service using all his faith to get shelter for orphans food for the starving or clean water for a dying community of believers.

The One Question that burns in me, that burns so red hot at times that it is hard not to get in the flesh and lash out at what I see is a great SIN and injustice.

The question I pose to you, and I wish not to have argument or discussion, you answer the question for yourself, whatever the answer may be, is the answer for you, and that is okay. The question is:

Is It Right?

That Churches in the dark places of the Earth have  little recourse's to help children not die in the dust, while a Pastor in America feels a $10,000 gold watch is a must?

Is It Right?

For Christian Leaders in nations that are full of violence and hate, to have to scrounge for a house, while ministers in America live in mansions, have yachts and buy $10,000 wardrobes for their spouse?

Is It Right? Do YOU Think It was Gods Plan?

That most of "the kingdoms wealth" is in the hands of Ministries that need it the least, serving in the freedom and comfort of The United States, buying sports cars and huge estates? Wearing jewelry and clothes that are worth a fortune,  while throwing some pennies at their starving brothers misfortune? Is that right?

Did The Lord decide that He liked us more, to make us wealthy and fat giving a safe land to dwell, while missionaries and Pastors plead for money to build just one more well, to save one more child? And what is this I see, a  $2,000 suite asking me from a TV, to sew a "faith seed"?

Is that right?
Could it be right?

That The Lord loves us so much more, that He supplies us million dollar light and sound systems, Cathedrals of Glass and fine wood doors?

Is it right?
Could it Be Right?

That laying in the closet,in the drawers and in the bank accounts of  Prophets, Pastors,Evangelist and Teachers, there is enormous wealth tied up in un-needed and overpriced, clothes,jewelry, boats,cars and multi-million dollar estates, some literally have watches that could build two wells and save hundreds of lives etc..etc...etc. All of which would be enough recourse to win a continent for Christ by building churches, supporting evangelist and Pastors, and all of which will be a pile of ashes soon. Some are inserting Judas and the perfume reference right about now, well, you are not Mary, I am not Judas, and your watch isn't glorifying Jesus or preparing Him for burial!!

Let this speak to you.

The Fathers Focus

Some scripture:

2 Corinthians 5

1 For we know that if our earthly house, this tent, is destroyed, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. 2 For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed with our habitation which is from heaven…..

Romans 8

23 Not only that,but we also who have the firstfruitsof the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, eagerly waiting for the adoption, the redemption of our body……..

26So too the [Holy] Spirit comes to our aid and bears us up in our weakness; for we do not know what prayer to offer nor how to offer it worthily as we ought, but the Spirit Himself goes to meet our supplication and pleads in our behalf with unspeakable yearnings and groanings too deep for utterance.

27And He Who searches the hearts of men knows what is in the mind of the [Holy] Spirit [what His intent is], because the Spirit intercedes and pleads [before God] in behalf of the saints according to and in harmony with God’s will.

28We are assured and know that [God being a partner in their labor] all things work together and are [fitting into a plan] for good to and for those who love God and are called according to [His] design and purpose.

Philippians 1

22 But if I live on in the flesh, this will mean fruit from my labor; yet what I shall choose I cannot tell. 23 For I am hard-pressed between the two, having a desire to depart and be with Christ, which is far better. 24 Nevertheless to remain in the flesh is more needful for you.

As I was worshipping in United Prayer these verses came alive to me. There are times that I long and groan so deeply to be able to step out of this body and see our Lord face to face. It is as if nothing I can do, on this earth, is enough to satisfy the longing I have to step out of this tent and be in the full presence of our Father.

My heart cried out, “Father I just want to be in your throne room”. It was as if I did not want to spend one more second on this earth in this tent of flesh.

Then I saw in my spirit, me standing before the throne. There were others there, but I could only hear The Father speaking to me. His attention was not on me, His attention was not on what was going on in heaven, but His attention was on the earth, on the brothers and sisters in Christ standing around me.

I then heard Him speak these things to me. I will write them as accurate as I can, Lord forgive me for what I miss.

(The Lord could say,and I believe is saying, this to each and every one of us)

“Son, I could bring you here in a moment. You could come and abide in my throne room, but my attention is on the earth. You could come here, but then you would leave behind the people I have called you to work beside, you would leave them without something I have designed them to have. My attention and power is focused on my people fulfilling my plan on the earth. You could come here, but it would be like a soldier leaving behind his squad in the midst of a battle, you would then only be a spectator, to the unfolding of my plan on earth.”

It was so real to me that The Lord is very interested, very invested in pouring His power and blessing on His people, here and now. Oh The Glory of Heaven we will experience for all eternity. The Marriage Super of the Lamb will be a wondrous celebration!

However right now, The Lords Attention, His Focus, His Blessings, His Power, and His Love is being directed toward those who Love Him and are called according to His Purpose, and what is His purpose, but to have His will be done ON EARTH as it is in heaven.

Oh how He loves us! Oh, how He wants for us to be in His full presence, more than we want to be in His full presence. But, for now, we have work to do for Him. For now The Church and The World needs us to be here as ambassadors for Christ and The Kingdom of Heaven. There is great reward for us as we endure the hardships and persecutions of this world in order to be His body on the earth, and He is preparing that reward right now, adding to it all the time.

I want to tell you my Brothers and Sisters in Christ. The LORD is with us. He is intently watching over us, His full attention is on us as we fulfill His Plan on earth as it is in heaven.

So fellow prayer warriors, stand on this planet and allow The Lord to use your voice as a conduit for bringing resources from heaven to earth, for building of The Body, for the supply of The Church, for the sake of The Elect, for the Glory of The Kingdom.
