Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places, even as he chose us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before him. In love he predestined us for adoption to himself as sons through Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of his will, to the praise of his glorious grace, with which he has blessed us in the Beloved. Ephesians 1:3-6

Every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places. Think of it! The Creator of the Universe chose that His followers should be holy and blameless before Him and has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places. Not some. EVERY spiritual blessing! Continue reading 30 Blessings & 25 Responsibilities for Christians

The Key to the Christian Walk

Venice Apartments - 1

When someone asks you “”Where do you live?” How do you answer? I usually say, “Beaumont, California” or my subdivision if I’m not in Beaumont. I don’t say if I live in a house, an apartment, or on the street.

Pilate asked Jesus, “Where are you from?” but Jesus gave no reply in John 19:9.

How would you respond if someone asked you where your heart abides?  Continue reading The Key to the Christian Walk

12 Quotes from Christ the Healer

F.F. Bosworth’s Christ the Healer is truth for today. Keith and I read this book after the many times that I had been prayed for and anointed with oil for healing from fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome. After Keith read this book, he told me that he was going to preach a sermon after the Lord healed me. That was two years before God miraculously healed me on November 21, 2010. In January, 2011, he did preach on God’s healing touch.

 In the two-year interval from God’s promise to His healing, we pressed into the Lord, and He blessed us with His presence and comfort as He gently shared the Scriptures with us in a new way, removing the church traditions that we had learned about healing and spiritual gifts only being for the early church and not for today. We learned that God still heals today – through miracles, through physicians and modern medicine, and in His timing, whether in this life or in eternity.

5 Reasons to Cling to God’s Word

Forever, O LORD, your word is firmly fixed in the heavens.
Your faithfulness endures to all generations;
you have established the earth, and it stands fast.

By your appointment they stand this day,
for all things are your servants.
Psalm 119:89-91

Sixty-six books, 40 authors, yet God-breathed, 2 Timothy 3:16,

The Bible reveals a love so deep men and women cannot grasp its totality. We watch this love unfold as God breathes into Adam and gives him life. We see God walking with Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden in the cool of the day – the way it was meant to be. We frown as Adam and Eve eat the forbidden fruit and hide from God. We marvel when God promises One who will pay the price for their sin and the sins of future generations, so that their relationship will be restored with God.
