  • The Lord blessed me today

    Today The Lord Jesus had some special blessings for me.

    1st a man who has been spending some time with me, and I have taught him many things that The Lord has revealed to me, came to my house today. He has attended a church all of his life and certainly had all of the traditions taught to him over the years. He has received these revelations with joy, even the fact that God is One and not three. Today he came to my house again and I shared the latest revelation about Saul, David, & Goliath with him. We had a good talk and he was here several hours.

    I went down the stairs to let him out ( the door is kept locked at all times and I have to relock it). As I was coming back up the stairs The Lord suggested that I stop to see the two Jewish ladies that are moving out at the end of the month. I preached the gospel to them,( after I put a light bulb in the ceiling light for them) trying to leave nothing out, and they teared up while listening. I asked them if I brought a Bible with the NT down to them, would they read it. She said, Yes I will. Then they both told me that they loved me very much, and I told them that I loved them both very much. It was special blessing that I will never forget.

    With some people one has to earn the right to preach the gospel to them. I am speaking humanly, of course. You must first prove to them that you care for them. Then they will listen to what you have to say.

    The Lord Jesus is full of mercy and grace for us all. We would be without hope if He was not like that.

    I do not deserve to be His servant. But He deserves to have servants. It is my best hope that I am His bond servant who can not even chose to leave Him.

    Hallelujah, brother. It is a marvel to witness the Lord at work. God bless those to whom you preach, to receive the love of God and His wisdom.

    I spend time visiting a man who has many troubles. The world has him in its grip. He wanders between seeking fulfillment in many things and is never filled, and thirsting and hungering for most, perhaps all, of the things in Matthew 5. But he can't seem to shake his anger at God whom he blames for his woes, and this hinders his faith, even though he's told me things that indicate the Lord Jesus has been shielding and carrying him. I have a love for this man and I minister to him because, among other things, I see something genuine in him that I see in few people: a guileless affection for, interest in, and generosity towards others. Yet often it is a challenge for me. It's like wrestling a python that never tires.

    He lost his temper briefly one day, and for the umpteenth time accused God: why does He have to toy with us, why can't He just show up; instead we gotta have faith (emphatically, like it's a bad word).

    I told him that God does not glory in His power or might, but in His wisdom. We have access to His wisdom in His written word and our teacher, the Holy Ghost, and in the testimonies and miracles of many. It is our faith that pleases God, because His word is truth, it is His bond, and our faith shows we believe His word rather than the lie.

    He said, where is He then? Why are people such <expletive>? Why is my life so crappy? If He really cared He would do something.

    I was at a loss for a few moments. Then I said, well...He sent me. (I'm pretty sure I didn't think of that on my own, though. The Lord nudged me.)

    Then he got quiet. The anger episode was over. Something had taken the wind out of his sails. A few days later he sent me a text message: his life is still hard, but he had met someone, and they cared enough to pray for him. I texted back, Bless that person; You know what; I pray for you daily.

    Where is God? I say, there is God, the Master Potter, with unwavering patience and care fashioning His vessels.

    Thanks for sharing, brother Lou, and in turn inspiring me to share. What the Lord does through us is pretty amazing. That He does it at all is astonishing. I give thanks on behalf of you and those you minister to.

      Thanks for sharing your testimony Barry.

      I ministered to this one man who kept having sexual relationships with one girlfriend after another for 20 years. I oftened wondered if I was wasting my time and others were quick to tell me that I was. But he finally got so tired of being mistreated by one woman after another that he made a woman friend that he was not attracted to, but she was a good friend to him. He finally married that girl and they are still married today.

      BTW, I froze a half bushel of peaches today and I am very tired after all that work. But preaching the gospel in between bouts of doing peaches kept me going.

      Thanks for the prayers.

        This was a blessing to read. God can work in and through people in any way He pleases.
