How Jesus Heals Emotions #2

Hi all, I've raised the issue that we don't see Jesus laying hands on someone for emotional healing in the gospels, yet clearly the healing of emotions is part of the work of the cross. So where do we find emotional healing in the ministry of Jesus?   Foundational scripture provides a clue Isaiah 42:1-4 is a prophecy about the Messiah, and says in v3-4: "A bruised reed He will not break. A smoldering wick He will not snuff out. In faithfulness He will read more...

How Jesus Heals Emotions #1

Hi all, We can all list physical healings Jesus did in the gospels ranging from blind eyes opened to the lame walking, but can you name a single healing of a person's emotional wounds?   Is there any place in the gospels where Jesus laid His hand on someone and said something like 'Be healed of your emotional pain caused by your father dying when you were 10 years old'? Is there any example listed when we read read more...

Quantum Physics and Jesus, Are Thoughts Solid #3

Hi all, Continuing our discussion pondering if thoughts have substance. But to do so we must turn back to light - and Light.   God is light and there is no darkness in Him. God is love. These statements in I John 1:5 and 4:8 respectively are given as blank statements. God is love and light, therefore love and light are synonymous. Love brings light into any situation, any relationship, and light (higher ways) bring love into any situation, read more...

June 2017 Newsletter

Hi all,   I’ll try to squeeze a lot of information in this month, there is so much to tell, so much to reflect on. Our Dutch conference had a different dynamic this year, including a lot of children present, who had many visions and words from the Lord – it really amazed and blessed we adults!   In the middle of worship the Lord opened the eyes of about 6 or 7 adults read more...

Quantum Physics and Jesus, Are Thoughts Solid? #2

Hi all, I ended last week asking the question:   Do thoughts have mass? Scripture is full of references linking the spirit realm to the natural realm, perhaps the most definitive statement is from Hebrews 11:3:   "Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the Word of God, so that the things which are seen were made by things which are not seen."   Things seen were made by "things that aren't seen" means 'things' exist in that realm: The read more...

Quantum Physics and Jesus, Are Thoughts Solid? #1

Hi all, I recently sat down with a young lady and heard how she came to know Jesus, which was quite remarkable. Just a few years ago she had been an atheist - and not your average quiet atheist - but one who actively, on the street, demonstrated against religions, thought Christians were stupid and uneducated, and looked down on all those non-thinking stupid religious people. She was an activist, angry, yelling, demonstrating, flaming liberal atheist - read more...

Recognizing God’s Seasons in Life #2

Hi all, I started this series talking about how the Lord moves in seasons while we tend to move in minutes and seconds. But recognizing His seasons in our lives is essential to walking with Him. Those seasons are at His pace, not ours. We must learn to slow down and realize He takes the long view - He has invested in us for eternity, already planning to show us how much He loves us in read more...

Recognizing God’s Seasons in Life #1

Hi all, In Genesis 1:14 God made the lights (stars and planets) to shine through the water atmosphere of the earth saying, "Let them be for signs, for seasons, for days, for years...to give light upon the earth (v15)...and it was so."   This was not the creation of light, which was described in 1:3 in the famous words 'Let there be light', or more literally, 'Light. Be.'   The light of Genesis 1:14 is the recognition that read more...

May 2017 Newsletter

Hi all, Thank you for your prayers, especially for Chris during this busy travel season for us. We've only had a couple of incidents with him during this last nearly 2 week trip in April, which is amazing. Though a 2 week trip it was right at 3 weeks since seeing him due to preparation before and resting/jet lag after and overall he did well. Thank you! Barb and I leave the 23rd for our Dutch read more...

Love Stories with a Twist #7, Not his

Hi all, The infamous start of David and Bathsheba's relationship is well known, and you'll recall earlier in this series I shared the twist that David's closest advisor, Ahithophel, was Bathsheba's grandfather, and became co-conspirator against David with Absalom. Yet from this dysfunctional family came Solomon, and together with his father's reign, comprised the 'Golden Age' of Israel, from 1010 BC to 931BC - a long time ago. Today, another love story with a twist involving this read more...
