Fiery Trial

1 Peter:4:12-13 Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you: But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ's sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy.

Are you going through the fire right now? Ecc says "There is a time and season for everything under the sun", which also includes fiery trials.

I like though the way Peter starts out in this verse and says "Beloved".

We are the beloved. Loved by God beyond measure! Did you know when you are born again, that God writes your name on the palm of His hand? Did you know that you are the apple of God's eye? You are the center of His attention! He knows you so intimately that he has even counted the number of hairs you have on your head. This is so good to know isn't it beloved? To know that no matter what type of trail we are going through, we are the beloved, you are the beloved of God Himself!

Peter goes on to tell us, "don't think it's a strange thing when you have a fiery trial." When you live for God, you're bound to have some. Why? Because our enemy Satan does not want you to know you are beloved and he does not want you to make a difference in others lives. But yet God wants you to know you indeed are beloved and that you really can make a difference in your own life and others.

Lately, I have been posting some pretty serious stuff and praying a lot more. I'm starting to see my prayers answered and Satan is not happy that I am making a difference in others lives (ever it be even so small). Satan our true enemy (not one another) wants to kill, steal, and destroy any good thing that is your life! He absolutely hates you with a venom vengeance and hates anything you do for God and for others and will do anything in his power to stop you.

The good news is "Greater is He that is within you, than he that is within the world"
Also "I can do all things through Christ that strengthens me"

So, this blog post is to all of you who are living for God, and touching other people with your love for God. Keep it up! Go through the trail and wear the helmet of salvation, keep grasping the shield of faith and the sword of the spirit, the word of God. Keep that breast plate of right standing on you, and keep your shoes on, sharing the good news to others. YOU ARE BELOVED! Share your Wealth, share your riches; share your love and the love of God!

I love you, and God loves you even more.

Wishing you more Wealth and Riches in every area of your life!

How to tell if your church is sick or healthy

How to tell if your church is sick or healthy

It's really important to know if the church you are a member of is sick or healthy spiritually. After all, if it's sick; you'll want to know; to help make it healthy.

First some things to go over what a spiritually healthy church is NOT:

1. Its size. It doesn't matter if your church is 50 or 5000. It is not an indicator of spiritual health.

2. Its Music. It doesn't matter if your worship team plays the harp, the piano, you have 10 guitars, and your song leader is famous because he or she sings so great.

3. The Pastor(s) all have degree's from a college.

4. The number of offices it has or how wonderful the church building looks.

5. That your service is on TV or Radio.

Okay you get the idea. Let's look at some of the signs if your church is spiritually sick.

1. No one is encouraged to bring their Bibles

I Tim 3:16 "All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:"
Hard to know doctrine if you're not reading it.

2. Hardly anyone comes to prayer meetings

Acts 1:14 "These all continued with one accord in prayer and supplication, with the women, and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with his brethren."

Ps 54:12 "Hear my prayer, O God; give ear to the words of my mouth."

Matt 18:19-20 19 "Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven. For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them."

3. No small groups or low participation

Act 2:46 "And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart,"

Heb 10:25 "Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching"

4. The word is watered down so much that no one is encouraged to forsake sin and live holy.

Lev 11:45 "For I am the LORD that bringeth you up out of the land of Egypt, to be your God: ye shall therefore be holy, for I am holy."

Rev 22:18-19 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book. "

1 John 4:17 "Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world."

5. No real love for each other. Only superficial relationships

1 John 4:11 "Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another."

6. No call to salvation at the end of the message.

John 3:16 "16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."

Romans 10:9-10 "9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation."

2 Corn 6:2 ...."behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation."

7. No call to respond to the message for believers.

Matt 11:20 "Then began he to upbraid the cities wherein most of his mighty works were done, because they repented not:"

8. No lives are being changed by God and or His word.

Mark 6:7 "And he called unto him the twelve, and began to send them forth by two and two; and gave them power over unclean spirits;"

Mark 3:15 "And to have power to heal sicknesses, and to cast out devils:"

Mark 12:24 "And Jesus answering said unto them, Do ye not therefore err, because ye know not the scriptures, neither the power of God?"

If your church or you as an individual is lacking one of these eight things, I want to encourage you to make some adjustments in your life. Ask God to show you where you may be lacking and to help you.

If you belong to a church that is lacking in one of these areas I encourage you to talk to your Pastor and or the leadership of the church and encourage them in God's word to fulfill His will. Ask what you can do to help bring about a change.
If they reject what you say, you might want to prayerfully consider finding a new church home.

Wishing you more Wealth and Riches in every area of your life,

Trick or Treat..It's Your Choice Today

The Grim Reaper

Treat or Treat...It's Your Choice Today

We have a problem and here it is:

"And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment" -The Bible

"The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it [a]overflows)." - Jesus

And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.- Revelations 20:12

"And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire." - Revelations 20:15

Don't be deceived, many people think the devil looks like this:

But he's way to smart to appear as he really is.
"And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light." -II Corn 11:14

He might look like this instead:

Or like this:

Or like this:

Or possibly like this:

(Disney-The Rescuers)

"Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:" I Peter 5:8

And while I'm on the subject, it use to be you'd only see scary movies out in or around Halloween. Not any more! There have been around 28 horror movies release in 2010. No wonder people are so freaked out now a days!

The real trick though is, people think that there is no devil.

If there is no devil. No satan, no demons, then that makes the whole Bible a lie and Jesus a lier too. But the Bible says:

Luke 11:14 "And he was casting out a devil, and it was dumb. And it came to pass, when the devil was gone out, the dumb spake; and the people wondered."

Luke 13:32 "And he said unto them, Go ye, and tell that fox, Behold, I cast out devils, and I do cures to day and to morrow, and the third day I shall be perfected."

Matthew:8:28 "And when He arrived at the other side in the country of the Gadarenes, two men under the control of demons went to meet Him, coming out of the tombs, so fierce and savage that no one was able to pass that way.

29And behold, they shrieked and screamed, What have You to do with us, Jesus, Son of God? Have You come to torment us before the appointed time?(D)

30Now at some distance from there a drove of many hogs was grazing.

31And the demons begged Him, If You drive us out, send us into the drove of hogs.

32And He said to them, Begone! So they came out and went into the hogs, and behold, the whole drove rushed down the steep bank into the sea and died in the water.

33The herdsmen fled and went into the town and reported everything, including what had happened to the men under the power of demons."

Let's look at one of these verses more closely verse 29 from above:

29And behold, they shrieked and screamed, What have You to do with us, Jesus, Son of God?
The Demons knew who Jesus was/is. They called him "Son of God"

The Big question of the day is "Do you know who Jesus is?"

Jesus came to cleanse you of all your sins and forgive you. To give you eternal life.

John 3:16 "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."

John 5:24 "Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life."

Make it a treat today. It's not a trick. Jesus loves you and died for you. He's alive today and wants to come into your life and be your Lord and save you, forgive you of all your sins.

Won't you make him Lord of your life today?

If you want to receive Jesus, pray this prayer and mean it from your heart:

"Jesus, I believe you died for me and are alive today. Forgive me of all my sins and come into my life. I turn from all my sins. Thank you for saving me. Amen. "

If you said that prayer and meant it from your heart you have been Born Again.

I encourage you to find a Bible believing church, read your Bible, and tell someone of your decision today. Feel free to leave a comment.

Wishing you more Wealth and Riches in every area of your life!


Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full.

Helping children with heart disease

I just got back from Lancaster, PA from an incredible meeting with the Dannecker family. This family is simply incredible!
Before I tell you want this family does in Israel, I want you to see the baby in their picture. Her name is Moriah.
You see..Hank being in Israel decided he really needed to hear from God as to His will. He used fleece praying. (Judges 6) He prayed "God if it's really your will for us to be here in Israel , I pray for a new child to be in our home." He was in prayer for 2 days alone asking God for His direction. He came back home and soon after his two children and his wife were feeling sick. Well the children got well, but his wife Michele didn't. She explained the symptoms to her friend, and her friend said
"Michele, it sounds like you might be pregnant."
Michele being 40 years old, said no, I don't think so.
Hank her husband upon hearing this, said
"Ah honey I forgot to tell you what I prayed."
Sure enough she had Mariah. They named her Moriah because it was where Hank had prayed on a mountain near them named "Moriah".

They took their family and fulfilled a call to be missionaries in Israel.
I first have to say they were nothing like I had imagined they would be like. They are a family so surrendered to God and so full of love that you can't help but long to be in service like they are to others.
What do they do? They have started something called 1New Heart.
They partner with heart surgeons and provide surgery to children with Congenital heart disease (CHD). Eight out of every 1000 live births around the world have some form of CHD.

I am posting their news letter here. Just click on it three times to enlarge it:

They reach out to Palestinian children. Hank points out that Jesus told us to love our enemy's. (Matthew 5:42-44) It is though this love that families are being touched so deep by the love of Christ that they give their lives to Jesus. Not only is the immediate family effected, but when something good happens in a Palestinian family, they invite all their relatives over and slaughter a couple of lambs and have a feast.
So, many others are touched by the love of Jesus by their service in 1NewHeart.

Heart surgery like this would normally run at least $400,000. An opportunity has opened where they can have a child's operation for only $5,000!

To learn more you can go to http://www.1newheart.org/ or email them at 1newheart@gamil.com

What a wonderful way to give life, both physical and possibly spiritually too!

Wishing you more Wealth and Riches in your life as you give.
