Sweet Peace

Hey Pastor John, 
 
Today was so sweet, I just have to tell you about it!

I was listening to Darren* sing to me all day.  As I worked, phones would ring or someone would walk in, just normal work stuff, but every once in a while I would just stop and listen to the music, and the sweetest peace covered me!  Then life around me would start again.

This happened all day!  I smiled as I was walking to my car after work, thinking, “Jesus I know it’s been you all day!”

I love his sweet peace, Pastor John.  When you’re covered in it, the world and all its craziness just slides right off you!

Leika’s Poem

Pastor John,

I make a poem yesterday:

 

Babylon the Great

 

The great and mighty city

The mother of harlots, full of mystery 

She drunk the blood of the martyrs 

And she was full of blasphemy 

 

The habitation of the devils

The place of every foul spirit

A cage of every unclean

A congregation of the dead

 

Her hand full of abominations

And filthiness of her fornication 

Her wine and delicacies, drunk and ate by all nation

Her sins and iniquities, reached and seen unto heaven

 

Babylon the great is fallen!

She will be thrown down

And shall not be found

For the judgement will come

 

God is calling her people in Babylon

Come out of her, my people!

For their ceremonies, full of vanity

Come out! For her plague will be exceedingly great!

Homesick

Good morning pastor John.

This excerpt is so good to me!  It touched me as soon as I read it.  Jesus did not want this world.  Jesus wanted his Father and the glory his Father wanted him to have.  It made me think of sister Sheila and her testimony of being homesick. Oh, to have our hearts and eyes so fixed on Jesus that when they offer us the world, we can’t even see what they offer.

This world will never know our hearts, for we have been forever changed.

Touched by the Son.

Makes me homesick too.

Sweet Science Class

Hey there, 

We had such a sweet science lesson yesterday.  I looked in my teacher’s notes and saw this.  Ha!  It made me smile.  I was suppose to ask the kids this question and give them the answer, “God”.  They didn’t get that simple answer.  They got the whole testimony, again, on Jesus asking me pretty much the same question, “Who created science?”  It was so sweet to start our first science class of the year with that testimony.  It’s the reason they were ever born. heart

My Grandparents Had the Spirit!

Last weekend I went to a little get-together with my cousins and second cousins that I haven’t seen in decades. The eldest had done a genealogy work-up that she wanted to share with us. Anyway, over the course of visiting, she shared that my grandparent’s church was a lively church, with lively worship, and she said they spoke in tongues.  It was an Assembly of God church.  They had the holy Ghost!  I told her that I had the holy Ghost, but that was as far as the conversation went.

It has so blessed me to know that they had Jesus to comfort and guide them. They had such a hard life, but this gives me a whole different perspective. :o)

A number of us have discovered that we have relatives who received the holy Ghost in the past, but we knew nothing of it.  Makes me suspect that many more people have the Spirit now than tell about it.

How Great the Son Is!

Good morning John.

Waiting for our plane to take off… thought I would read the Bible on my phone… here are the wonderful thoughts I read from Hebrews 1:

Hebrews 1:1-14 KJV

“[1] God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, [2] Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds; [3] Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high; [4] Being made so much better than the angels, as he hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they. [5] For unto which of the angels said he at any time, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee? And again, I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son? [6] And again, when he bringeth in the firstbegotten into the world, he saith, And let all the angels of God worship him. [7] And of the angels he saith, Who maketh his angels spirits, and his ministers a flame of fire. [8] But unto the Son he saith , Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom. [9] Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows. [10] And, Thou, Lord, in the beginning hast laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the works of thine hands: [11] They shall perish; but thou remainest; and they all shall wax old as doth a garment; [12] And as a vesture shalt thou fold them up, and they shall be changed: but thou art the same, and thy years shall not fail. [13] But to which of the angels said he at any time, Sit on my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool? [14] Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?”

The Son is SO GREAT!  In these last days God spoke to us through Him.  How full that made me feel, and how thankful.  Lord thank you for speaking to us.  Thank you for your SON, and that we can know Him through the Holy Ghost.  No news there…. I just wanted to talk about Jesus.  He has made us rich.

Hope your travels are going well!

One

Sometimes it amazes me how far from human Jesus makes us. ​ ​I am sitting in a dealership parking lot just thanking Jesus for helping M​—. ​ ​Thanking him for helping B​— with her brother. ​ ​I feel so overwhelmed with thankfulness. ​ ​I feel like it happened to me​!​ ​ ​I keep thinking​, “This is what you mean​,​ Jesus​,​ by ​”​being one​”​.​ ​ And t​his is what it means when Sister Willie says​,​ “I am you​,​ and you are me​.​”​ ​When one of us gets blessed​,​ it really is OUR blessing. ​ ​To really be one. 

Whew!​ ​ That is so far from human.​!​ ​ Sometimes​,​ I see this girl Jesus is making​,​ and I am in awe at what he is doing. ​ ​I cant believe I get to be a part.
