Raised from the Depths of the Ocean like Lazarus

Harrison Odjegba Okene was working as a cook aboard a tugboat in the Atlantic Ocean off the Nigerian coast in June 2013, when a heavy swell caused the vessel to capsize and his boat sank to the sea bed, where his 11 colleagues drowned.  None of them were Christians.  Most of them were Muslims, the rest, sadly simply did not care to know the Lord. 

By the Divine mercy of Almighty GOD Okene was able to find an air pocket inside the sunken ship. It is there in the unlikeliest of places that he miraculously survived for three days and three nights. Underneath the Ocean, trapped in a sunken ship, Okene trusted that the LORD would send an Angel to save him.  

The 1st day was filled with fear, the 2nd day was filled with worry, on the 3rd day Okene began to pray for his wife and family because he knew that they would most likely be in deep pain thinking that he was dead.  He NEVER gave up hope that he would be rescued because his hope did not depend on him, his own strength, or his circumstances, because JESUS CHRIST is Okene's Lord and Savior. 

 Okene nearly weeps with joy when as the South African divers bursts into the air pocket which has kept Okene alive for nearly three days. The whole incident is recorded by the diver's headcam video the full impact of the miraculous encounter is plain to see on Okene's exhausted tear stained face.  

It wasn't until afterwards in the hospital that the Rescue divers told Okene that they weren't there to rescue anyone because everyone assumed that all hands on deck had been lost. The divers were actually there to collect dead bodies.   Finding Okene alive was a total surprise to the divers. 

“See, the LORD’S arm is not too short to save, nor are his ears too dull to hear your cries..." Isaiah 59:1-3

Holy Light Miracle in The Diocese of Cyprus

This Miracle occurred in The Diocese of Cyprus and the Gulf is one of four dioceses in the Province of Jerusalem and the Middle East.  The Priest is of is a Christian Orthodox Bishop.  In the video he is blessing the members of the Church after Mass on a Christian Holy Day.   At no time during the blessing with Holy Water did anyone see anything or notice anything out of the ordinary.  Even the Camera man was unaware that something extraordinary was happening till after he reviewed the film he shot that day.  

The Priest in the video is Archbishop Agios Therapon bishop of Cyprus of the  Diocese of Cyprus the filming occurred  in the N. chapel  in Attica rubella (Kriekoukis).  Archbishop Agios Therapon is renowned for his humble and pious lifestyle.  If you watch the video the Holy Light shinning from the Archbishop at first seems that maybe there is a light to his left, but as you watch the video you realize that the light is emanating from the Archbishop himself.  After the Blessing with Holy water is finished and the Archbishop turns around the Holy Light shinning from him winks out.  Having watched the video several times it is apparent that the Archbishop is filled with the Divine Light of the Holy Spirit during his pastoral duties. When the
Archbishop Agios finishes his Blessing and turns away from the congregants he returns to his normal self. The video is amazing and points to what JESUS said about those who follows in his footsteps...  

"You have been raised to life with Christ. Now set your heart on what is in heaven, where Christ rules at God’s right side. Think about what is up there, not about what is here on earth. You died, which means that your life is hidden with Christ, who sits beside God.  Christ gives meaning to your life, and when he appears, you will also appear with him in glory..."   Colossians 3:1-4

The Holy Sacrament of Baptism

A husband and wife from New Mexico wanted to become Holy Spirit filled Orthodox Christians. They went to St Anthony of the Desert in Las Cruces, New Mexico.  After spending in prayer the pair went to spoke with an Orthodox Priest who informed them that Orthodox Baptism is done by three immersions in water like John the Baptist did when he baptized our Lord JESUS CHRIST.  There is an alternative to full immersion known as “Holy Chrismation."  This is a Sacrament in which the baptized believer, being anointed with Holy Chrism on certain parts of the body, in the name of the Holy Spirit, receives the gifts of the Holy Spirit for growth and strength in spiritual life.”  It is often for the infirm, ill, or those not suited to full immersion. Full immersion is considered the correct and desired form of the Sacrament of Holy Baptism. 

The Husband feeling shy opted for "Holy Chrismation" rather then the conventional 3 times immersion Baptism.  After much prayer, the wife wanting to be like her Lord JESUS CHRIST, felt led to chose the standard baptism (the three times immersion.)  During the Holy Sacrament of Baptism no one saw or felt anything out of the ordinary.  The ceremony was well received and everyone, most especially the couple were happy.  It wasn't until after the ceremony when their pictures were developed that the true Divine power of the sacrament of Baptism was revealed.

The wife who followed in the footsteps of our Lord JESUS CHRIST was shinning with Holy Light.  The wife was glowing a pure and Holy White so bright that her human body can not be seen in the photos. Only the Divine light of our King and Savior JESUS CHRIST is visible radiating through her.  It is clear to see that washed in the Sacrament of Baptism her soul became white as snow (clean) and glowing like an angel.  All of this, while captured by the camera, was unseen by the unaided human eye.   Very often, the camera will always capture what the eyes cannot see.

The wife appeared normal to all those present at the Baptism, but Divinely different through the lens of the camera's spectrum.

 "Then Jesus came from Galilee to the Jordan to be baptized by John.  But John tried to deter him, saying, “I need to be baptized by you, and do you come to me?”
 Jesus replied, “Let it be so now; it is proper for us to do this to fulfill all righteousness.” Then John consented.
As soon as Jesus was baptized, he went up out of the water. At that moment heaven was opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting on him. And a voice from heaven said...

 “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.”  
Matthew 3: 13-17

Pastor David Jones Witnesses the Awesome and Terrifying "The Day of the Lord" Jones is a Praise and Worship Leader, Author, Visionary, Father and a Preacher who has served in ministries for over 25 years, 10 of those years pastoring a church. In 2012, God moved the ministry to Charlotte North Carolina where David now resides with his wife and three children.

David is especially well-known for his energetic praise and worship and being a man in pursuit of God’s heart. As he leads his people into praise and worship, God’s presence manifests, deliverance, healing and salvation begin to take place. When David preaches the Word of God, it is uncompromised and comes forth with a heavy anointing, with authority and with power. Angels are manifesting while supernatural miracles of healings and deliverances are taking place. Souls are being saved by the power of God.

 "And in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke.The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and terrible day of the Lord come." Joel 2:28-32 NKJ

This is the first preacher who has seen the awesome power of the LORD as I have personally witnessed.  Today, the word of GOD in popular culture spews from the mouths of 'feel good, prosperity preaching pastors, priests, bishops, archbishops, and any other title the diamond ring wearing wolves in sheep clothing   care to give themselves.  Sin and all that sin encompasses is far from the lips of men who VAINLY preach like false gods over churches of thousands.  These are the same prosperity preaches who feel that life should be about money, nice cars, dressing well, and having ALL that the god of this world promises.  

My questions is..."What happens when the Almighty GOD who struck the world with a flood, ending all life, except for 1 family, comes calling?  Will that new car, big house, and 3rd wife hide you from the face of the LORD which is like a burning SUN?   Men will claw their eyes out when the LORD of Hosts appears with eyes like fire and a voice that shakes the mountain tops.  People will run too and fro but they will not be able to hide from the face of the eternal GOD.  

Who will stand with the preachers, pastors, and priests when the LORD of HEAVEN asks..."What have you done for the least of my people?"  On the great and terrible day of the LORD no one will want to be to near those men and women who made themselves rich off of the backs of poor hardworking Christians.

The HOLY SPIRIT will shine with Holy Fire and mens hearts will fail them as GOD begins to mark iniquity.  No flesh will glorify itself on the great and terrible day of the LORD.  No one will brag or boast when JESUS CHRIST brings forth the eternal scales of Divine Justice. His Holy and Righteous judgement will be as a a blast furnace upon those who made a living leading GOD'S people astray.  On that fateful day money, fame, power, wealth, social status, religious affiliation, will be unable to hide a man's heart from the HOLY all seeing eyes of the living GOD.    No one will be able to make amends, or give false testimony when Almighty GOD stands upon the earth with the Heavenly hosts at HIS back and an iron rod in HIS hand.     

The birds of the air will rejoice on that day because they will feast on the flesh of all the unrepentant sinners of the earth.  Men will cry out..."Please give me another chance, I thought I had more time", but the end of time has come, like a thief in the night.

GOD is offering YOU the same Divine grace right now!  At this very moment you have the chance to surrender your life to GOD through HIS Divine Son JESUS CHRIST. 

"For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world and lose his own soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul..." Matthew 16:26

The Prophets of GOD are coming II

Not to call an immoral action sinful; is to hate your brother and condemn him to an eternal death.

The most loving and compassionate thing we can do is to help people to turn away from sin. Because SIN is DEATH and Sinful behavior leads to a slow downward spiral into darkness.  Better to offend a loved one while they are alive, those who are headed for certain destruction, rather than mourn them after they are dead.  Love is being able to speak the truth no matter how politically incorrect it sounds.  Love is caring about the person so much that you are willing to offend them.  Love is the willingness to say NO, to speak the truth, to stand on the word of GOD.  JESUS CHRIST didn’t come into the world to preach a feel good prosperity gospel where everyone has 3 houses and 2 Cadillac’s in the drive way.

JESUS CHRIST said…“Do not think that I came to bring peace on the earth; I did not come to bring peace, BUT A SWORD! “For I came to SET A MAN AGAINST HIS FATHER, AND A DAUGHTER AGAINST HER MOTHER, AND A DAUGHTER-IN-LAW AGAINST HER MOTHER-IN-LAW; and A MAN’S ENEMIES WILL BE THE MEMBERS OF HIS HOUSEHOLD…” Matthew 10:34 NKJ

You know why HE said that…Because, the word of GOD, which is TRUTH, cuts to the bone and people who are living in Sin do not in any way want someone to shine a light into their darkness.   

It's okay to say Homosexuality is WRONG!  

It's okay to say that Abortion is MURDER!

Its okay to say Adultery is WRONG

It's okay to disagree with popular opinion

It's okay to be different, to stand up, to STAND OUT!

 To ignore another person’s wrongful actions is a sign of apathy or indifference.  Not warning your loved ones because you fear offending them is cowardliness of the worst order.   Those loved ones when they are standing at the edge of the eternal lake of fire will turn to you looking down from Heaven and ask..."Why didn't you stop me? Why didn't you warn me?"  What will you say to them as they disappear screaming into the fires of HELL?   What will an eternity in Heaven be like without those you love?  

The call to repentance is at the heart of the Gospel.  JESUS CHRIST Himself proclaimed to all who would listen... “The Kingdom of God is at hand. Repent and believe the Good News” (Mark 1:15).

The Good News is that God’s mercy and forgiveness extend to those who repent. 

The Blood of JESUS CHRIST cleanses ALL Unrighteousness!!!  Not some, not a little, but ALL Unrighteousness!!!

GOD'S Divine Mercy is that HE loves us so much, that HE sent HIS Only Begotten Son, to call the world to repentance.  Our Lord JESUS CHRIST did not come into the world to judge it, but to save it.  Sometimes, to save the patient you have to cut deep into the infection and rip out that which is cancerous and festering.  Only then, after removing the sin in someone life can the real healing process begins.

Believe me when I tell you….I do not stand here before you as a self-righteous saint who has achieved spiritual perfection, but as a wretched, low life, sinner, who, on death's door step cried out to JESUS. Never believing that HE would want anything to do with the likes of me or even answer a miserable loser like myself.  To my complete surprise JESUS CHRIST answered my cry with open arms.  HE said in an audible voice..."Come to me there is no pain or suffering in me..."  

He forgave me my sins, even the ones I couldn't find it in my heart to forgive myself.  Even the worst of my low life behavior was forgiven.  The Blood of JESUS CHRIST was the only thing in this universe which had the power to remove the heavy weight I toiled under each day. 

And now each day the healing proceeds, one day into the next the light of GOD’S love finding a new foothold in my life and the darkness that once ruled completely.   Like Daniel being pulled from the Lion pit, the early morning sun declaring GOD'S protection during the night.  My Life, bit by bit turns from the dark night of the soul to the eternal day where the SON of GOD rules inside of me in peace and happiness. 

There are no 2nd Chances in HELL

During an intense prayer time Michael Yeager prayed to be sent to HELL so that he could understand eternal damnation.   To Michael this experience was physical and real. When GOD allowed it to happen Michael didn't understand that what was happening was occurring, not in the natural, but in the spirit.

When Micheal's prayer was answered with out any warning the floor of his room ripped open, and he fell into hell for over two hours!  The one thing he came away with was the fact that there are no 2nd chances in hell.  There is no love in hell.  There is only eternal torment and regret.  I pray that this NEVER happens to you my brothers and Sisters. 

Cry our to JESUS CHRIST while there is still time!   The clock is ticking, the hour is late...

May GOD Bless You All...

A Doubting Man Gets Healed By God


 Roy Davidson's stomach ulcers caused had caused him intense decades long searing pain.  The Doctors had told Roy that even if somehow medicine could heal Roy's ulcers that the scar tissue left behind would continue to make him suffer for the rest of his life.  More then one Doctor told Roy that medical science could not cure him.   Resigned, to a life time of pain Roy did his best to endure the daily agony of bleeding ulcers.   Though, a believer in JESUS CHRIST, Roy really didn't believe that GOD, who was busy running the Universe, would take time out of HIS busy schedule to come and heal him. 

It was  during a mission trip to Haiti to assist after the terrible earthquake that Roy's severe abdominal pain became crippling.   O this mission trip to Haiti were Godly men who KNEW that JESUS CHRIST not only had the power to heal, but that HE wanted to offer that healing power to any who would Faithfully ask for it.  The pain in Haiti had become so bad that the local Haitian Doctors informed Roy that he might no make it.   Having no other options Roy had to decide whether he could trust God to heal him through Spirit-filled men he barely knew.

I can tell you from personal experience that sometimes GOD lets us get backed into a corner with no options left, so that we might finally turn to HIM and cry out with our whole heart.    Too often,  we forget that JESUS CHRIST is the Divine Son of GOD and when HE says that by HIS stripes we are healed HE means it.   JESUS CHRIST meant what he said when HE said..."Ask my FATHER in my name and you shall receive."  Our Lord JESUS CHRIST wants very much to bless you.  It is NOT that HE is with holding your blessing it usually is the case that we don't have the faith to ask, because we erroneously believe that GOD won't answer our prayer.

 Another faulty thought process is that.."Well, the Doctors say there is no hope for me.  That I am incurable."  We tend to believe what the Doctors tell us.  What you have to remember that JESUS CHRIST is not a Doctor with limited human abilities. 

JESUS CHRIST has been given ALL AUTHORITY in Heaven and on Earth.  There is nothing, no miracle too big, no request too small that JESUS cannot fill.  In Heaven there are Angels who's only job is to deliver eye popping, jaw dropping, fall over backward miracles.  The funny thing is when the Angels drop off these one in a million miracles they are often let down, because they know that the miracle of the century down here on earth are common practice in the Kingdom of Holy Spirit Believers.

In fact the Angels often turn to the instantly healed believers and ask them..."WHY DIDN'T YOU ASK FOR MORE!"  Almighty GOD is all about the MORE!  GOD hung the stars in the sky, he put the mountains in place, he spoke the universe into existence. Do you really think he can't cure cancer, polio, diabetes, aids, drug addiction, alcoholism,  or another "ISIM" that you can throw at HIM?

Our FATHER who art in Heaven sent HIS only begotten SON so that you and I can be FREE from sin, sickness, diseases, poverty, depression, and the kicker's FREE for the asking.  I am not kidding!  You don't have to log on to some crappy government website that breaks down, there are no forms to fill out, no restrictions, no credit approval, nope, nada, zip...

All you have to so is ask JESUS CHRIST to be your Savior and HE will do the rest.   You know who NOW knows that this is true?   Roy Davidson.  He was cured of an incurable illness that almost killed him.  Modern medicine had nothing for him. The Doctors had given up on him.   Even Roy had given up.  You know who didn't give up?
