HALLOWEEN-BEWARE OF THE SPIRIT WORLD

Many people think Halloween is a bit of fun and frivolity. It’s Not! Whether you believe it or not, we live in a physical and spirit world . The Spirit world waits on us and through our words and actions reacts and attaches itself to people who invoke it. An analogy is when you pray to God and Jesus, you speak the words and they answer prayers. It’s the same thing, the evil is there so when the words are spoken, they have the potential to open the door to evil, you are inviting it into your life. Words are so powerful, they reach the spirit world and become binding. What you speak out of your mouth have lasting effects on you and your family. If they’re not your words, they may be someone else’s words and they will still be binding in the spirit world. I have helped people who have dabbled with the occult and have had bad consequences as a result. The Spirit world will try to harass, and inflict evil and pain to whomever is open to it. Sometimes it’s so subtle and may even look innocent but demons are masters of deception. YES!!!!!! SO HALLOWEEN TO ME, IS LIKE A NIGHT OF RECRUITMENT TO THOSE WHO OPEN THAT DOOR.

Please don’t get me wrong! I love fun but it’s the type of fun that is real and wholesome and beautiful, not ugly and demonic.

DO NOT FOOL YOURSELF!!!!! SATAN AND DEMONS ARE ALIVE AND WELL. SOME PEOPLE THINK THAT THEY DON’T EXIST. THEY DO,  AND WILL HARASS ANYONE THAT OPENS THAT DOOR.                                                    The enemy has only one goal and that is to maim, destroy and kill anything that God loves and has created. The enemy is the master of deception. The enemy knows the bible back the front and will take a truth and twist a little lie to make you believe anything. But Jesus Christ came into this world to quash the enemy and undo the evil. Stay awake, pray to Jesus-the king of the universe, the one who has paid for our sins, the one who walks this earth  waiting on people to call on Him .(for more reading on Spiritual Warfare see Charles Kraft, Grant Mullen)

FOCUS ON JESUS ON WHAT IS BEAUTIFUL AND PRAISEWORTHY AND KEEP THE DEMONS OUT!!!!!

YOU MAY THINK YOU ARE IN CONTROL-YOU’RE NOT!!!!!

You may think you are in control but you really aren’t. Sure, God has given us free will but it’s a TEST. A test where you can deny God, blaspheme God, cheat God, lie to Him and destroy everything and everyone along the way, on this earth.

You live in a physical world which is in the NOW and in a spiritual world where God, Jesus Christ and Satan live as well.

God has relinquished control unto us so that we can complete the test, the test that will lead us to either live with Him in heaven in our spirit life or hell where there will be no God and no turning back.

However, there is a condition, that condition being that you live out your life according to the gospel of Jesus Christ. I’m sure God’s first question to you on judgement day will be….”So, what have you done with my Son Jesus?”

So Jesus should be the centre of your universe.

God giveth and God taketh according to His will. God has the infinite power, He has the complete plan for each and everyone one of us, and only He knows us better than anyone else, even ourselves. We all make choices that determine our fate and by our choices we will be judged.

I say to you, surrender to God, have patience and allow Him to work out your problems. Ask Him what lessons you need to learn, ask Him to give you the tools you need to help you get there. Of course, God is not interested in riches of money but riches that are in spiritual gifts which will draw you closer to Him. Ask God to show you in a way that is clear and obvious to you,  the things you need to grow closer to Him and His Son Jesus. Then and only then, will you be at peace and on the right path. A heart is happy when the heart is at peace. The Holy Spirit bestows us with peace. Ask the Holy Spirit to infill you afresh with His gifts, gifts from God.

COME HOLY SPIRIT, FILL OUR HEARTS WITH LOVE AND

OUR MINDS WITH LIGHT!

LOVED MARK WAHLBERG BEFORE- LOVE HIM EVEN MORE NOW!!!!

LIKE THE GREAT RABBI-JESUS CHRIST 

WE NEED GREAT PRIESTS TO LEAD US

Image result for HOLY SPIRIT

Join the many celebrities like Mark Wahlberg who are proud of their faith and who are not afraid to promote it.(See other blog on testimonials) In conversations with people, I am surprised to hear at how insular some people can be. Some are making sweeping statements about priests and use put downs all because the media has sensationalised what few have done to hurt people and the whole of the priesthood. I’m not condoning what has happened, the full force of the law needs to apply here. But please,  do not put priests all into one basket.

Like Mark, my family has been surrounded by priests. It was a priest who baptised us all into the family of God. When we migrated to Australia and couldn’t speak a word of english, it was a priest who helped us. When my two brothers were growing up, it was a priest who helped them stay focussed.  It was a priest who gave us the sacraments and married us all. A priest who buried my father and all my other deceased relatives.

Today, I see priests who get phone calls and knocks at their doors at all hours of the day and night, who attend hospitals for the sick and dying, who comfort people who are desperate, suffering depression or drug addicted, who give food and money to the poor for nothing or very little in return.

Image result for PRIESTS WHO DO GOD'S WORK

We need more priests to serve God’s people . We lay people cannot do it on our own, we need to be fed spiritually and we need good leaders to help us. God knows the world is in disarray, our governments have lost the plot, they are just interested in money and populous issues that will get them into government. They are not interested in your spiritual wellbeing,  but all hope is not lost.

Pray for more religious and leaders in our communities, who will help us stay focussed on the big picture and lead us to our eternal home.

MAY THE HOLY SPIRIT ENLIGHTEN YOU AND GIVE YOU WISDOM.

GOD THE INTELLIGENT DESIGNER-THE PRINTING PRESS

You might ask what has God got to do with the invention of the printing press? The answer to this and for many other inventions and constructions, is that God works through people. The Holy Spirit is the quiet whisperer who puts the ideas, who gives us the courage, the strength, the words, the formulaes to do what God wants us to do.

Having travelled around Italy, Spain and France over recent years, I was in awe of the beautiful historical universities that are still operating today. The catholic church actually created the university system. The printing press was invented in the Holy Roman Empire by the catholic, german family – Gutenberg around 1440. The first books Gutenberg printed with his press were copies of the Bible. The printing press facilitated literacy around the Europe and the world. This in turn made the bible more accessible to the masses hence the growth in catholicism.

This then makes the catholic church the first. There are links here with Jesus who entrusted Peter with the keys to the Kingdom. Matthew 16:18: “I tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church and the gates of hell will not prevail against it.” The three images of church as the authority in the bible are rock, steward, and shepherd which provide a powerful interlocking and interdependent support for the authority Christ intended to leave with his Church on earth.

Here are some universities still operating today founded by the catholic church.

LET GO AND REPLACE IT WITH GREATFULNESS

Image result for god's abundant blessing

For me it’s during those moments when I am feeling overtired, down and unwell that I need this the most. A time to focus not on what is wrong with me, what has not worked out, what people are saying or just feeling out of sorts.

Focusing on the negatives attracts more negatives, a bit like when you yawn- it’s contagious, you’ll soon find others around you yawning too. When someone starts the negative talk, it just seems to rise and grow into more negative talk. That’s just futile, because you’re left feeling worse. Words are powerful and they can have a positive or negative effect on you. So, if someone has spoken unkind or negative words about you or to you, just shake them off by asking Jesus to take away what ever that person has said or transferred onto you and to replace it with the opposite to what was said eg… ugly-opposite-you’re made in God’s image, beauty comes from within, fat – opposite- one size does not fit all, I am the right size and I should embrace the size that I am.

Do not let the world define who you are!

Allow God to validate you!

My cure for feeling down and out is to nip it in the bud before it takes hold. That’s exactly what the enemy wants:- to put fear and doubt into you. The enemy wants to steal your joy and achievements, the enemy wants to steal your soul.             There are always many positives in our lives but when we are in that negative state of mind, we cannot see them. If you’re finding it hard, just write down all the great things that have happened to you in the last six months.   When we’re down we prefer to focus on the negatives. All this negative stuff doesn’t come from God. God wants what is best for you, He wants you to have faith in Him, His Son Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit, He wants you to ask Jesus to take away all doubt and fear and fill your cup with joy, peace love and patience. I also ask the Holy Spirit to give me a fresh infilling of His gifts………. and you know what?????? that fear, doubt, self pity, etc….. just seems to disappear.

So here are my gratefuls which may also inspire you to write your own:_ Just thinking about them makes me feel alive!!!!

My reasonably good health, the fact that I can walk unaided, I am independent, I have a wonderful husband, my beautiful daughters with whom I am close, my loving mother, my supportive brothers, my job and all the great feedback I get from others, my house, my car, the money to pay the bills, the friends I have who care, the beauty of just having been on a holiday, the joy of giving to others, the fact that I have invited a friend who is having problems, over for dinner- it gives me joy to be able to help her, supporting my husband with his men’s spirituality group, my church prayer group. My quiet times with God, the fact that Jesus thought I was special enough to give up his life for me. The sunsets from my window, my pastime for collecting curios. My dog, walks in the park, listening to my favourite music, eating my favourite chocolate licorice roll, sunrise and waking up when its daytime(daylight savings is great). Reading a good book. My favourite chair and pillow, my flowers in the garden. Many of these cost nothing or they’re reasonably cheap.

I will say this again (as I have another post with these words)……..happiness is not dependent on your circumstances.

I wish you God’s abundant blessings and a heart full of gratitude because that’s what will bring you happiness and a smile to your face.

SHROUD OF TURIN – A RELIC FOR THE END TIMES

SHROUD OF TURIN-A RELIC   New Science-proves Jesus Christ

I went to Turin to visit relatives and while I was there, I made a point of visiting the Royal Chapel of St. John the Baptist Cathedral in Turin, where the shroud of Jesus Christ’s burial is housed. The relic is approx. 4.5m long X 1.5 m wide. The image of the face of Jesus moved me, it touched my very core.  I felt a presence, a face that endured pain as seen by the marks on his head yet untouched by it, a face with a certain majesty and humbleness about it, that it commanded my respect and reverence. I felt the need to kneel and pray.

During the last centuries, the Shroud has been publicly exhibited a limited number of times, often on very special occasions.  Like his predecessor Pope Benedict, Pope Francis authorized an “early” exposition of the cloth since the next formally scheduled exposition was set by Pope John Paul II for 2025. Currently, only the living Pope can authorize a public exposition of the Shroud.                                 From April 19, 2015 through June 24, 2015, more than two million visitors came to Turin from around the world to view the Shroud while it was on public display.

It is stored under the laminated bulletproof glass of the airtight case. The temperature and humidity controlled-case is filled with argon (99.5%) and oxygen (0.5%) to prevent chemical changes, the Shroud itself is kept on an aluminum support sliding on runners and stored flat within the case. When the Shroud is not on public display, the case is closed; during the public display the case can be moved, raised and opened.

See photos of the public display in June, 2015 (see link below)

The latest findings completed by scientists from around the world using 3D hologram technology of the image on the shroud, is further evidence of its authenticity. Watch and see the link below, then decide for yourself.
