THE NEW GLORIFIED BODIES

Glorified body of Jesus meets disciplesChristian believers in Christ in the grave wait for new glorified bodies like Jesus’ Resurrected body during Rapture. John 5:25 & 5:28 says a time will come dead in graves will hear shout and come out of the graves in first resurrection. Jesus’ Glorified body looks exactly as He lived so was seen and recognised, some touched His wounds and ate with Jesus on many occasions. Jesus went through the walls of a locked door of the Upper Room and interacted with people. 1 Thessalonians 4:14-17 says dead in Christ will rise first then we who are alive will be caught up together with them in the clouds to heaven. During Rapture Bible says in a twinkle of an eye the dead will arise alive first and given new glorified body with those alive before ascending to heaven. God will revitalise dead human figures to resurrect and make them alive again. In Matthew 27:52-53, Jesus’ Resurrection manifested in graves opening and those buried came out of tombs alive. They came out of the graves and went into the HOLY CITY Jerusalem in Israel and appeared to many people. Godly bodies of many saints who died and decayed is clearly stated, came out of their graves alive, seen by many people. Matthew’s statement said those who came out of opened graves, who had been buried went out alive to visit their families and loved ones so lived again. Jesus’ death and Resurrection brought life as Ezekiel 37:1-14 miracle described in the valley of dry bones to prove RESURRECTION POWER of the Living God ALMIGHTY. In the same way, those who died in Christ will be resurrected in the Rapture alive into heaven. Glorified bodies like Jesus live on earth and heaven yet Rapture miracle sounds so impossible to some human minds, they say it will never happen. The thought of dead people coming alive again after so many years of passing as decayed bones is often dismissed. With GOD All Things ARE POSSIBLE as Jesus lives again after burial three days in the grave. Similarly resurrection of all dead in Christ will be happening during Rapture. When Jesus comes in the CLOUDS, Trumpet sounds and shout wakes the dead in Christ so they arise first to meet together with those alive in the air. The Rapture event is imminent but depends on God’s timing alone. Eventually when Rapture happens people will recognise loved ones and reunite as a family. The most important point is that God’s commands restores lives again. Numerous miracles of the dead raised to life is in Bible so all Christians in Christ will be resurrected in Rapture. As vision of Ezekiel 37:1-14 describes spiritual lives restored in the valley of dry bones so will Rapture be. It is significant and relevant to compare these processes described. Because they give insight to Rapture life resurrection although initially means nation restored to God. God will physically restore dead dry bones in Christ in graves in exactly the same way as dry bones in the valley. The Trumpet call sound heard from the four corners will bring dead back to life instantly like Ezekiel 37:1-14. Miracles of God often have precedence in Bible to encourage people to believe. The Spirit of God in mankind is eternal so never dies and this Spirit returns into dead people, wakes them up from death sleeplike coma alive. The vision shows life depends on God’s Power not on circumstances of the people. Putting “breath” of God’s Spirit into the bones shows God will restore them physically and spiritually. Those in Christ fulfill this prophecy with Israel when God will gather believers in Christ from all lands into heaven. Later Christ will return to establish His Millennial Kingdom in the land of Israel says Matthew 24:30–31. Human bodies as described in 1 Corinthians 15:42–53 are perishable, dishonourable and weak due to sin. Our glorified bodies will be imperishable, honourable and powerful. Our new bodies will be no longer mere “natural” bodies but “spiritual” bodies focussed on heavenly places, at one with Holy Spirit of God like Jesus’ Glorified body. Resurrection of Jesus guarantees us that physical death in a grave is not the end. The body sleeps but the spirit soul goes to the LORD God as Philippians 1:20-24 stated. Awake and sing who who dwell in dust for yout dew like dew of herbs and earth shall cast out dead says Isaiah 26:19. Lord Jesus returns in cloud with spirit soul to raise the body in glory and unite body with soul as one being to share His Glory forever.IMG-20180314-WA0005IMG_20180615_060104picture-201Is-the-Hope-of-Rapture-to-meet-Jesus-Christ-Achievable

John 11:17-27 says Jesus is Resurrection and The Life 17 so Jesus found Lazarus was in the tomb four days. 18Bethany was near Jerusalem about two miles off 19 and many of the Jews came to Martha and Mary to console them concerning their brother.20 Martha heard Jesus was coming so went to meet Him, but Mary stayed at the house. 21 Martha said to Jesus, “Lord, if You had been here, my brother would not have died. 22 I know whatever You ask God HE will give You. 23 Jesus said to her, “Your brother will rise again.”24 Martha said to Him, “I know he will rise in resurrection on the last day.” 25 Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life; he who believes in Me will live even if he dies, 26 and all who live and believes in Me will never die. Do you believe this?” 27 She said to Him, “Yes, Lord I believe You are Christ, the Son of God who came to save the world.” Jesus wept, prayed and thanked God for hearing His request so said, “Lazarus, come out.” Immediately Lazarus walked out of the graves after he was buried four days. Events taking place in alignment with God’s plans are unfolding daily to prepare people to get ready for the Rapture. Only God knows exact day, hour or time but it is good to educate yourself and be in the know to make informed choice. It is written in Ezekiel 37:1-14 in the Bible describing detailed process God used to bring dry bones to life. The Hand of the LORD God came on Ezekiel in the Spirit of the LORD in the valley full of human bones. Ezekiel  was asked to cause dry bones to live again after all hope was lost. God asked Ezekiel, ‘Son of man, can these bones live? Ezekiel answered, “O Lord God, You know.” God said “Prophesy to these bones and say to them ‘dry bones hear the word of the Lord! The LORD God said speak to these bones, “Surely to cause breath to enter you to live. I AM will put sinews on you to bring flesh on you to cover you with skin and put breath in you and you will live. Then you will know I AM the LORD. Ezekiel prophesied as commanded and there was noise and suddenly a rattling and the bones came together bone to bone so sinews and flesh came on them and skin covered them but there was no breath in them. God said to Ezekiel, “Prophesy breath, prophesy, son of man and say to breath, ‘Thus says the LORD God, “Come from four winds, O breath and breathe on the slain that they will live.” And so Ezekiel prophesied as God commanded and breath came into them and they lived and stood on their feet as an exceedingly great army. So God said, “Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel. They say, ‘Our bones are dry, our hope is lost and so are cut off! Prophesy the LORD God says, “O My people I will open your graves and you come up from your graves, and bring you into land of Israel. You will know I AM the LORD when I open your graves O My people to bring you up from your graves. I will put My Spirit in you and you will live and I will place you in your own land. Then you will know I AM the LORD and spoken it and performed it,” says the LORD.” This Spiritual change is seen in physical manifestation of nation of Israel and all the nations on earth are grafted in Christ through God’s Eternal covenant with Abraham. Just as a dead situations are restored to life so dead in Christ are restored to life in the Rapture as people believe. Some think there will be no Rapture because flesh and blood cannot dwell in God’s Kingdom. A new glorified body is given so it’s not just a mere flesh and blood anymore. A body is renewed without sickness or body limitations so life is restored in perfect image of God without sin. As Ezekiel’s Spiritual Gospel message came alive in the living history of Israel so Christian believers in Christ Rapture alive into heaven to escape GREAT TRIBULATIONS but God allows unbelievers to remain on earth according to their faith. Seek God in prayer to help you discern HIS SALVATION plan in Jesus Christ.

TREASURE IN CLAY VESSELS

pottery-ceramicTreasures in clay earthware vessels hidden, priceless gem, preserved to encourage you to hold on, endure by faith Jesus Name.

A rock collector named Rob once went on a dig and found a rock he described as “purdy and big.” He tried unsuccessfully to sell it, and when that failed, he kept the rock in his closet in the dark. “We have treasure in earthen vessels, surpassing greatness of power and will of God not from ourselves but from God. Although afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed but not despairing; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed says .” 2 Corinthians 4:7-9 in the Bible. Rob had guessed the blue chunk of rock could bring as much as $500, but he would have taken less if something urgent came up like paying his power bill. That’s how close he came to selling for a few hundred dollars what turned out to be the largest, most valuable sapphire ever found. The blue rock Rob Cutshaw had abandoned to the darkness of a closet two decades ago known as “The Star of David” sapphire weighs nearly a pound, and could easily sell for $2.75 million. How many have a treasure hidden in the darkness of our lives, unaware of its immense value? God wants nothing more than for you and me to have full access to all blessings and rewards He’s already laid aside for us to have.bIt’s easy to live life unaware that God has set aside this treasure to have. I can often live in desperation, wondering when I’m going to get a break, questioning when God’s going to finally come through. So, how do we discover this fantastic treasure and let God take care of our needs? Sometimes, for God to meet our need we first plant seed for others.7759295-handmade-clay-jars-characteristic-of-central-java-indonesia

Many years ago, our church ministry was about to be kicked out of a school where we’d been meeting for Sunday service. While we had no idea what would happen, we continued to teach the Word and take care of each other like brothers and sisters in Christ should. I was still at Dallas Seminary, and one day I walked by a staff member there who casually said to me, “Oh, by the way, did you know that that small church on Camp Wisdom Road is getting ready to move, and they’re looking to sell?” Before the year was done, we moved to our permanent church home. Because we stayed diligent in fulfilling our calling as a ministry, teaching the Word and caring for each other, God revealed a wonderful treasure that was mere blocks from the school we had been occupying. God has called you to a mighty work as well. The hardships we face can be distracting, even paralyzing sometimes. But God wants to know whether our focus is on Him or on our hardships. When we stay diligent with what He’s given us, God will fill us to overflowing with even more down the road. Consider this example. If you wanted to purchase a particular amount of rice, the person behind the counter would pour that rice into a measuring pot or scale of some kind. But they would not fill it to the precise measure straight away; they would only go three quarters of the way up and then shake the pot and press on the rice. The reason for shaking is to both level out the rice and fill in any gaps formed underneath. In other words, because of the shaking and the pressing, you get more rice. That’s what God can do in the midst of your trouble; He lets life press down so He can “fill in the gaps.” AsEarthen_Vessel_thumb[1] 2 Corinthians 4:8 reads, “We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not despairing.” Most often, it’s in life’s darkness that God prepares us for His best. Lord, I ask You to give us peace, to weather the storms of life and relax in dark times, knowing You are with me. Fill me with a greater measure of Your courage, that I might stand boldly against the enemy’s attacks. Finally, I ask for patience as I wait for Your great treasures, both here and in the life to come. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

RESURRECTION OF THE DEAD

30133Hebrews 9:27 says it’s appointed once to die in Bible yet people live again after a clinical death resuscitation with proof of their confirmed death certificate. Some assume verse means mankind dies ONCE ONLY so never lives after death. Yet Scripture shows Jesus’ resurrection brought life after death and Jesus lives in heaven. Christ was sacrificed once to take away sin He will appear a second time in the CLOUDS in Rapture to bring salvation. Also other physical resurrections happened in life prior to Christ’s resurrection in the Old Testament showing a young boy died and was brought back to life by Elisha in 2 Kings 4:19-37. Another dead man was revived when his body touched the bones of prophet’s Elisha’s grave in 2 Kings 13:21. Individuals in Old and New Testament died but raised from death by Jesus and disciples. Many people were raised after Christ’s death, Resurrection God brought them back to life in Matthew 27:52-53, they went back to their homes, where many people saw them including their miracle experience for their relatives and friends reunions. The Bible account of these people God resurrected at Christ’s death eventually died again and their families buried them again. All other saints who died wait in graves to be resurrected to life in glorious spirit body. They did not die ‘once only’ but lived after resurrections and died second time later. They lived the rest of their resurrected physical lives and died again, buried, awaiting resurrection to spirit life upon return of Jesus Christ in Rapture. Proverbs 18:21 in Bible says death and life are in mouth so choose life. Those who do believe in Rapture of Daniel 12 and 1 Corinthians 15:50-53 go to God in heaven before the Great tribulation starts. The others stay asleep in grave until a thousand years after Millineal reign of Jesus and raised so their spirit soul after death does NOT go to heaven to be with God for saying Ecclesiastes 9:5 that dead know nothing. They quote John 3:13, none ascends into heaven only Jesus who came down from heaven or Jesus Christ referred to death as sleep in John 11:12-15. But Enoch and Elijah went ALIVE into heaven so those left behind’s flesh and spirit stay ASLEEP in grave. Those in God in Christ who believe in Rapture are resurrected by Jesus in Rapture alive into heaven.

Raised From Death in the Bible

People Raised From the Dead

The widow of Zarephath’s son was also raised from death. The prophet Elijah was at house of widow in Zarephath when the woman’s son died. She said Elijah brought God’s wrath for her sin.

She carried the boy into the upper room where he was staying, Elijah laid him on a bed and stretched himself on the body three times. He cried out to God for the boy’s life to return. God heard Elijah’s prayer and child’s came back to life and Elijah carried him downstairs. The woman declared prophet a true man of God and his words to be true in 1 King 17:17-24.

Shunammite Woman’s SonElisha Heals Shunammite Woman's Son

Elisha, the prophet stayed in the upper room of a couple in Shunem. He prayed for the woman to bear a son, and God answered. Several years later, the boy complained of a pain in his head then died. The woman went to Mount Carmel to Elisha, who sent his servant ahead, but the boy did not respond. Finally, Elisha went to see the dead boy. He cried out to the Lord and laid himself on the dead body,  mouth to mouth, eyes to eyes, hands to hands. The boy’s body grew warm so he sneezed seven times and opened his eyes. Elisha presented the boy back to his mother, she fell and bowed to the ground in 2 Kings 4:18-37.

Resurrection of Israelite ManValley of Dry Bones

Elisha the prophet died and was buried in a tomb. Moabite raiders attacked the Israel in spring interrupting a funeral. Fearing for their own lives, the burial party quickly threw body into Elisha’s tomb. As soon as body touched Elisha’s bones, the dead man came to life and stood up on his feet. This miracle was a resurrection from grave into a new life in 2 Kings 13:20–21.

Widow of Nain’s SonJesus raising the widow's son at Nain

In a village of Nain, Jesus and disciples encountered a funeral procession. Only son of a widow being buried. When Jesus saw her, his heart went out to her. He touched the bier that held the body so pall bearers stopped. When Jesus told the young man to get up, the son sat up and began talking. Jesus gave him back to his mother so people were astonished Praising God, they said, “A great prophet has appeared among us. God has come to help his people” in Luke 7:11–17.

Jairus’ DaughterJesus raised the dead daughter of Jairus

When Jesus was in Capernaum, Jairus, a leader in the synagogue, begged him to heal his 12-year-old daughter because she was dying. On the way, a messenger said not to bother because the girl had died. But Jesus said to Jairus, “Don’t be afraid; only believe, and your daughter will be healed.” Jesus arrived in a house to find mourners wailing outside. When he said she was not dead but sleeping, they laughed at him. Jesus went in, took her by the hand and said, “My child, get up.” Her spirit returned and she raised to life again. Jesus told parents to give her something to eat but not tell anyone what happened in Luke 8:49–56.

Lazarus was raised by Jesus Tomb of Lazarus

Jesus’ friend Lazarus was very sick so Martha and Mary sent for Jesus to come heal him in Bethany. Jesus delayed so He did not arrive before Lazarus died. Jesus stayed two more days but later arrived in Bethany when Lazarus had been in the tomb four days. Martha met them outside the village, where Jesus told her, “Your brother will rise again. I am the resurrection and the life.” They approached the tomb Jesus wept. Jesus ordered the stone rolled away, saying, “Did I not tell you if you believe, you will see the glory of God?” Raising His eyes to heaven prayed aloud to Father God. He commanded Lazarus to come out and he did so walked out, wrapped in burial cloths in John 11:1-44.

Jesus Christ was raised ALIVEThe Resurrection of Jesus Christ

After mock trial Jesus was scourged and taken to Golgotha outside Jerusalem by Roman soldiers nailed Him to the Cross on Friday and His body was put in the tomb of Joseph of Arimathea. So tomb  was sealed and soldiers guarded place. Sunday morning, the stone was rolled awayand empty and angels said Jesus raised from the dead. He appeared first to Mary Magdalene and to his disciples plud many others around the city told in Matthew 28:1-20; Mark 16:1-20; Luke 24:1-49; John 20:1-21:25.

Saints in JerusalemResurrection

Jesus Christ died on cross as earthquake struck, breaking open many graves and tombs in Jerusalem. Jesus’ resurrection from death raised Godly people raised to life appeared to many in the city in Matthew 27:50-54.

Tabitha or Dorcas, Peter raisedPeter Raises Tabitha

Everyone in city of Joppa loved Tabitha. She was always doing good, helping the poor, and making garments for others. One day Tabitha named Dorcas in Greek grew sick and died. Women washed her body then placed it in an upstairs room. They sent for apostle Peter, who was in nearby Lydda sent all from room, Peter fell to his knees and prayed. He said to her, “Tabitha, get up.” She sat up and Peter gave her to friends alive. So many people believed in Jesus because of it in Acts 9:36-42.

Eutychus raised by Paul Paul raises Eutychus from death.

In a packed third story room in Troas a young man sitting on a window ledge fell to death during sermon by apostle Paul. Fell from the windowsill a young man Eutychus dozed off,falling out of the window to his death. Paul rushed outside and threw himself on lifeless body. Immediately Eutychus came back to life. Paul went back upstairs, broke bread, and ate, people saw Eutychus alive again in Acts 20:7–12. So many people in modern times are raised alive from the grave in many countries today. You tube videos record testimonies of millions of people raised from death all over the world. So Resurrection Spirit of God in Christ is still at work today in all countries because Jesus is the same Yesterday, today and forever. So people from all nations died more than once because Jesus tarried. Some will never die before Rapture if the CLOUDS takes place so Jesus comes sooner. No matter when Rapture takes place people alive will join those raised alive from graves.

hebrews-9-27-free-bible-verse-desktop-wallpapersScriptures is very clear out of soul body, buried goes to Heaven immediately if a believer or to hades or hell if not. When Lazarus died, the angels carried him to Abraham’s Bosom. He saw and talked to rich man across the Great Gulf and in torment and pain in eternal judgement in hell. In the Book of Revelation the souls of those killed during the 7 years of Jacob’s Trouble of Great Tribulation, were under the Altar of God in heaven talked to God and God talked to them. The asked how long was it going to be before God avenged their death and God replied they had to rest a little longer until others were slain as they were. They did not wait in a deep sleep in the grave. When the Rapture happens, Jesus will bring the souls of those who had died with Him and Jesus will call their glorified bodies up from the grave to reunite with their souls in the clouds. Those who are alive, will be translated like Enoch was in Genesis and join Jesus in the clouds. Scripture is clear on this so we should not contradict Word of God. All who believe death is ONCE ONLY remain asleep in graves on earth until the MILLENNIAL second resurrection of all dead after Jesus’ rule and Reign on earth. They do not believe God can take their Spirit soul to heaven so GOD let’s them remain asleep in the graves never enjoying joy of heaven as idea comforts loved ones to know dead person is still around just sleeping in a grave. This is in line with concept of those left behind on earth saying flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God. They are left behind on earth as God grants them the permissive will belief because of not thinking God changes HIS mind at times in Scripture to rise or live after death. Hezekiah was appointed to die but he refused to die so God changed HIS mind and extended his life 15 years. As Jesus said later no man ascended into heaven in John 3:13 in a manner He did. Enoch went alive into heaven, Elijah went to heaven alive but not in the grand global style Jesus did as sent off by disciples on Mount Olives. The faithful Christians in Christ will be resurrected into spirit life by Christ as their First of the firstfruits in rapture. Saints whose body in graves AWAIT their resurrection 1 Corinthians 15:20 – 23 will go in the Rapture. Their Lord and Master Jesus built mansions for them to go into heaven before the GREAT TRIBULATIONS of mark of the beast starts. It is important to make up ones mind because whether you believe it or not Rapture will take place as days Noah’s family was saved in the flood. it is appointed unto man to die once Lot was saved in Sodom and Gomorrah from the fire so GREAT TRIBULATIONS of endtimes from the EARTHQUAKES and unseen evil is too unbearable. But those who prefer to stay left behind are allowed by God to do so. Both beliefs of two groups of Rapture and Left Behind are valid for its not exclusively only one correct answer. Jesus said two will be together and one will be taken but the is left behind. In maths correct answer is accepted as long as you can prove your method at arriving at the right answer. In the same way God let’s those whose standpoint in Bible agrees with Rapture point of view go to heaven and those who stand on a left behind perspective left on earth accordingly. Rapture is coming for those AWAITING Jesus in the CLOUDS but those who prefer SLEEP in graves will be left behind until after the 1000 years of Jesus Rule and reign. It is a choice of each person to decide if they prefer Rapture or want to stay asleep in the grave until after Jesus’ Millennial Resurrection of the dead for judgement. Those taken to God into heaven receive REWARDS for their service for God but others will stay asleep until after 1000 years rule of Jesus before being judged. So Bible says, according to your faith be it into you because God does not force people against their will to resurrect in glorified body to HIS physical Presence in heaven. SO UNLESS YOU BELIEVE IN THE RAPTURE YOU WILL NOT EXPERIENCE IT. The Resurrection of Jesus is different from all resurrections because Jesus’ resurrection is first “permanent” resurrection. All other resurrections in Bible were “temporary” so those raised to life died again Lazarus died twice but Jesus rose and never died again. This is why, He is firstfruits of all those “fallen asleep” in 1 Corinthians 15:20. Jesus’ resurrection justifies us in Romans 4:25 ensures eternal life because Jesus lives we will have eternal life in John 14:19. It is good to know death is not end of life so believers mourn with hope of eternal Resurrection in Christ Jesus. Father God our Comforter comforts through Holy Spirit to bear grief, sorrow for a season of crying and tears during passing into Glory. Yet we have full assurance loved ones will rise again in Christ’s Rapture and be reunited in the Presence of God in heaven. Then later dwell with God on earth physically when New Jerusalem comes down to Israel under Christ Jesus our KING of King’s rule forever. There will be no more tears, sorrow, pain or grief for God wipes all our tears away to live forevermore in Eternal joy. Death is painful yet we have hope of living again in joy in resurrection of Jesus Christ. Carletonville mortuary in South Africa where the woman was found aliveA South African woman was discovered alive in a morgue after being declared dead in a car crash. The woman was found breathing by mortuary technicians several hours after being certified dead by paramedics at scene of pile-up outside Carletonville, southwest of Johannesburg. We followed our procedures – we’ve got no idea how it happened,” Distress Alert operations manager Gerrit Bradnick told AFP. The crew is absolutely devastated – we’re not in the business of declaring living people dead, we’re in the business of keeping people alive.”The unnamed woman from Gauteng “showed no signs of life” following the traffic accident in the early hours of 24 June, Mr Bradnick added. Carletonville mortuary in South Africa where the woman was found alive. She was found alive in morgue fridge many hours after the crash in which victims’ car rolled, throwing her out of vehicle. All the right checks were done: breathing, pulse so patient declared deceased, Mr Bradnick said. After being discovered alive, the woman taken to Carletonville hospital is now recovering. “Paramedics are trained to determine death, not life” a source at Carletonville mortuary told Sowetan newspaper. Other deaths came alive:-

Pastor Daniel Ekechukwu died and also came back to life in a basement room of a church at Reinhard Bonke crusade in Nigeria, Africa. By prayer and massage to soften dead body from rigor mortis suddenly Daniel sneezed and arose with a jump. Between 3:50 and 5:15 PM on Sunday, Daniel who died Friday night around 10:00 PM slowly became fully coherent over the next few hours. The video of his testimony is below to see. A report on the website of Christ for all Nations declares: Three days Daniel was in a mortuary, did not breathe, his heart stopped beating. In hot climate, without ice chamber was injected with chemical to keep back mortification. Corpse was carted around for hours, pulled about, and lay in airless narrow coffin hours completely dead with death certificate. This public event was demonstration of revival from death by God in Jesus Name through wife Nneka’s faith. Her incurable faith prevented Daniel’s burial to bring him because she was convinced God will bring him back to life. She said Reinhard Bonnke as a man of God in the atmosphere of faith he ministered, this miracle was possible. The faith of Nneka dictated the whole event and her faith was honoured by God. She stood on the word of God that women receive their dead alive in Bible. Pastor Ekechukwu shares his testimony of his story of what happened when he was in heaven and saw hell. Now Pastor Daniel’s message is repentance of the church to prepare the church to stand before Jesus, and many have indeed repented after hearing his testimony live in real holiness. Ministry of Reinhard Bonnke in Nigerian crusade and in all the world share his testimony on TV and travels to share testimony.

GOD’S SPIRITUAL FIRE SAVES

On the left, a fire engulfs Bethel Community Church. On the right, the prayer room and its furniture survived relatively unscathed.God’s Consuming Spiritual Fire Power is again demonstrated in preserved prayer room saved intact despite devastating fire that destroyed the Bethel Community Church. A miracle happened at the heart of the church when God’s Supernatural Fire POWER saved HIS WORDS recorded in sermons. The Bible says God puts HIS WORDS ABOVE HIMSELF so human fire did not destroy God’s preserved words on tape. Even in the midst of adversity, tragedy or spiritual attacks God always comes through with a testimony of His Word. In this case literally preserving precious priceless sermons that GLORIFIED HIS Holy Name. The father of current pastor passed into heaven 18 months ago and heaven and the angels ensured God’s words did not perish. The prayers of the righteous avails much as proved by the Holy Presence of God in the church. The Bethel Community Church prayer room survived unscathed in the devastating fire which tore through the church. The pastor of the fire-ravaged church said it is “quite incredible” that a prayer room survived relatively unscathed.  Worshippers speculated a “spiritual fire” protected the room, Pastor Andrew Cleverly said. Pastor Andrew CleverlyMr Cleverly is hoping to retrieve tapes of his late father’s sermons which are stored in the room. About 95 firefighters and police officers responded on 15 June but it took until the following evening to put out the blaze. A 43-year-old man and a woman, aged 36, were arrested on suspicion of arson released pending further inquiries. An image released from inside the church shows a room and furniture within it apparently untouched by the fire. “Pastor Andrew Cleverly called for the community to “stand up and be strong” after the fire. Mr Cleverly said some of the community had “found comfort” in the belief that its use as a prayer room had shielded it from the fire. Bethel Community Church in Newport on fireIt is quite incredible really,” said Mr Cleverly, who got image from engineer. “Said it was left untouched. And there was no fire door, I think it was just a wooden door. “People are taking comfort in the belief that the reason the room was still intact was because of Spiritual Fire which the ordinary fire could not penetrate.Bethel Community Church dates back to the 1880s. Mr Cleverly’s father was the former church pastor who passed away 18 months ago said the room was used to store audio tape recording of father’s sermons. “When it is safe to do so, will to try and retrieve them,” he said. And a special service will take place nearby at Havelock Street Presbyterian Church from 15:00 BST on Sunday. “It will be a special time of reflection and a time to come together,” added Mr Cleverly. “I would like to thank the Havelock Street Presbyterian church which has very, very generously offered us a space for worship.”Havelock Street Presbyterian Church, Newport.The Pastor has thanked Havelock Street Presbyterian Church for offering his congregation a place to worship. He also thanked the community and the local businesses for supporting the church. “Sometimes it takes something like this that shows how a community comes together,” he added. The 130-year Grade-II listed Bethel Community Church on Stow Hill in Newport was destroyed after a fire spread from an old nightclub next door. The significance of this true story is at times tragedy destroys physical structures and the material possessions but God helps to strengthen faith and the Spirit of God in believers encourages us to continue by faith because it is well with our soul in Christ Jesus Name. Material things and structures can be replaced but the Spirit of God in mankind is irreplaceable for eternal salvation. 

A RICH DYING MAN’S ADVISE

259227-Spend-Time-With-Those-You-LoveSpend time with those you love is a rich man’s lasting advise to people to enjoy life better! “I reached the pinnacle of success in the business world. In other’s eyes my life is epitome of good success. However, aside from work, I have little joy. In the end, wealth is only a fact of life that I am accustomed to. At this moment, lying on the sick bed and recalling my whole life, I realize all the recognition and wealth I took so much pride in have all paled in comparison because now life became meaningless in the face of impending death. You can employ someone to drive the car for you, make money for you but you cannot have someone to bear the sickness for you. The material things lost can be found. But there is one thing never found when lost is “Life.” And the person fulfilling precious family times goes to places to created fond memories in appreciation of priceless valued lives. 83406ad0349c1f35c1959e514c16c3bbIf not otherwise years later in operating room realizes that there is one book has yet to finish reading called, “The Book of Healthy Life.” Whichever stage of life in right now, with time, do not wait until it is too late to faced the day when the life curtain comes down. Treasure Love for your family, love for your spouse, love for your friends and Treat yourself well. Cherish others. Growing older, became wiser and slowly realize that wearing a $300 or $30 watch both tell the same time in that specified location. Whether carrying $3000 or $3 wallet or handbag the amount of money inside is the same. Whether driving a $150,000 car or $300 car the road and distance is the same so both get to the same destination. And whether one drinks a bottle of $300 or $10 wine the hangover is the same. And whether the house lived in is 3000 sq ft or 300 sq ft, loneliness is the same. You will realize, your true inner happiness does not come from the material things of this world. Jesus said that a man’s life does not consist of material possessions.930701cdeec23a35bc6acb0a66887ac7Whether you fly first or economy class, in the plane you both arrive at the same time. You realize, when you have mates, buddies, friends, brothers, sisters, and family you chat with, laugh or talk with, sing songs and dance with or help each whether living north-south-east-west or in heaven or here on earth, That is true happiness!!!

Five Undeniable Facts of Life :
1. Don’t educate your children only to be rich to buy and sell. Educate them to be Happy. So when they grow up they will know the priceless value of life too not just the price of material things.

2. Best words in Bible, “Let your food be your medicines. Otherwise you have to eat medicines as your food.”

3. Those who love you never leave you because despite 100 reasons to give up on you they find one reason to hold on.ab073b809b0455b8b11cd832118781d3

4. There is a big difference between a human being and being human. Only a few really understand it.

LEARN GREAT LIFE LESSONS

IMG_20180607_181942Great life lessons learnt help us through mace of living in this imperfect world.

*MAKE RIGHT LONGTERM CHOICES*

When younger we make various choices without the future in mind. Sometimes those choices bite in our mid-life. These are some of the things one might regret.

1. *Marrying the wrong person*

When you’re young, check your motives for wanting to marry. Do not marry to copy your peers, for social standing, out of pressure. Ensure you marry for love and companionship, marry the right person, marry your best friend. For if you marry the wrong person or for the wrong reasons, you will have to put up with person the rest of your life. Things might get worse between you two; then depression, physical abuse, affairs, pain, shame, court cases, bitterness defines mid-life years all because you chose the wrong one. Things will get worse when children are involved. Make the right choice of a spouse when you are young.2010febvoice2

2. *The opportunities you did not seize*

When you are younger many doors will open, you will get many chances. Many young people let these opportunities go because of fear, laziness, or pride; yet well younger and with more energy is the best time to start a venture and a name for yourself. Some think the opportunities are too big for them. Take advantage of them or one day when you’re older you will want to go back and grab those missed chances.

3. *Do not Burn Bridges*

The younger care little for relationships, what most think about is getting money and moving up ladder of success at all cost. Many use and trample on people to progress, take relationships for granted, messing bonds, sleeping with people for personal gain. These bad actions does catch up with ahead. And realizes how empty life is without love or friends. If you have success but has no one around you or trusts you it’s a lonely life.IMG_20180607_182056

4. *The child terminatef*

A young lady if pregnant or scared may take termination option rather quickly thinking in the moment. But when you are much older, you will look back and wish you kept that baby. When you are rich and successful you may wish that child you gave up would be around to enjoy fruits of your hard work. Being a single mother doesn’t mean you can’t make it in life or can’t marry in future.

5. *The child rejected*

Young man, you impregnated a woman, she told you she’s pregnant with your child. You rejected her and baby and ran. Years later you’re 50 something, you will wish you were responsible, you will wish you manned up and became a father to that child. You will see child excel and become an adult but will have no claim to the grown up child rejected from the beginning. You regret being a Dead Beat Dad by choice.IMG_20180607_182036

6. *The marriage destroyed*

So you get married to your good fiance; the first months in marriage were good but shortly after, with your money and charm, you started having affairs. You became unfaithful. Spouse begged you to stop, your children started hurting, your marriage was collapsing. One day when you are older, it will hit you how foolish you were to destroy the good marriage you had began to build for temporary thrills in affairs that did you no good. You will realize the damage you caused to your children and spouse.

7. *The God disowned*

When you are much older you become wiser, God becomes more real as you see life in a more meaningful way. But don’t wait to get older to start enjoying a relationship with God. Know God when you are young, build your future with God. Don’t be a young rebel who runs back to God when age catches up.IMG_20180607_181842

8. *The body messed up*

You have only one body to live with all your life. The cigarettes, the alcohol you are abusing, the drugs you are taking, the unhealthy food you’re consuming; all that will destroy you slowly. When you are 50 and lifestyle diseases catch up with you, you will wish you took care of your body when younger, that you exercised more; but now the damage is done.

9. *The time wasted*

The time you are wasting when younger in worry, wrong relationships, laziness, being a couch potato, giving excuses and pursuing meaningless things; you will never get it back.

10. *The dreams talents shelved*

Are you talented when young; are there things you love to do and you are good at them? Nurture those talents, exploit them, don’t give up if you encounter set backs, don’t give up on your dreams. If you give up, when you’re older you will look at peers who do what they love and made it and think to self, “That could be me.” Pursue a career, study course you love. Don’t waste years of your life in a field that doesn’t fulfill you.Never-lose-yourself-while-trying-to-hold-on-to-someone-who-doesnt-care-about-losing-you.

11 *The name defamed*

When older, a legacy is very important, the value of a name is crucial. You will ask yourself what reputation are you leaving behind? Your legacy is a sum total of your actions since youthful days. The written biography of how we live life everyday counts. When you look back your path and see the mud threw at the name, the shame you attracted and the little value you have added to the world; you will regret.

12. *The wealth thrown away*

Are you riding on good money during your productive years? Earning good money? Don’t throw away that money in clubs, reckless living and wasteful shopping. Invest with money, widen your revenue stream, make that money work for you and keep it safe to take care of you in your older years. Leave an inheritance for your loved ones so will never say “I wish I knew better”

13. *The good love that got away*

Is there that great person in your life loving you good? Don’t push that person away, or else that person will walk out your life and you will never ever find someone incredible and who connects with you all your life. It will torment you to grow older with thoughts of “What if I was still with that person?”IMG_20180607_181814

14 *The parents you despised*

When younger, easy to show contempt to parents thinking what do parent’s know? They are old-fashioned, shady and small -minded. But parents are still your parents whether you agree with them or not, whatever their style. Don’t let your parent die separated from you, reconcile and make up. When you get older, you will realize why your parents wanted to be close to you. The older you get, the more you see the priceless value of life. Thanks for reading, quietly send it sharing the journey of life. Appreciate and realize the value of a sister/brother. Check out how it feels for someone who doesn’t have siblings.

GOD’S STILL SMALL VOICE

F0515F91-C126-40A3-9181-EC1AF0D9C040God’s Still Small Voice heard by Elijah in troubled times helped him to make the necessary decision to bring changes to the whole nation of Israel and himself. Rumbling earthquake noises preceded the fires announcing God’s Presence. To hear God’s voice requires listening to a still small voice. Almighty God is often perceived as talking in an exaggerated hyped high pitched thunderous voice of magnitude proportionate to His Size. It is surprising God chose to speak in that still small voice. This means we are to hear God during the quiet and the still moments of life too.

The LORD is slow to anger and great in power, and the Lord will by no means clear the guilty. His way is in whirlwind and storm, and the clouds are the dust of his feet. He rebukes the sea and makes it dry; he dries up all the rivers; Bashan and Carmel wither; the bloom of Lebanon withers. The mountains quake before him; the hills melt; the earth heaves before him, the world and all who dwell in it. …1102002026_univ_lsr_md

When he opened the sixth seal, I looked, and behold there was great earthquake, and the sun became black as sackcloth, the full moon became like blood, and the stars of the sky fell to the earth as the fig tree sheds its winter fruit when shaken by a gale. The sky vanished like a scroll that is being rolled up, every mountain and island was removed from its place. Then the kings of the earth and the great ones and the generals and the rich and powerful, and everyone, slave and free, hid themselves in the caves and among rocks of mountains, calling to the mountains and rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the face of him who is seated on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb.6303e51584c2e94f7727facab681dd32

Hebrews 12:25-29 ESV / 4 helpful votes

See that you do not refuse him who is speaking. For if they did not escape when they refused him who warned them on earth, much less will we escape if we reject him who warns from heaven. At that time his voice shook the earth, but now he has promised, “Yet once more I will shake not only the earth but also the heavens.” This phrase, “Yet once more,” indicates the removal of things that are shaken—that is, things that have been made—in order that the things that cannot be shaken may remain. Therefore let us be grateful for receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, and thus let us offer to God acceptable worship, with reverence and awe, for our God is a consuming fire.
