It’s A Miracle!

How many of you are in desperate need of a miracle?  I have met many people who are in dire straits and won’t last until the end of the year unless they receive some kind of miraculous intervention.  When a doctor can provide you with no hope, that should compel you to turn to the One who gave you life in the first place–the Author and Giver of life–Jesus Christ!
Jesus is the Master Physician!

Perhaps your faith is small or you don’t believe in God because you have never been in an environment (a healing service where miracles happen) where this is commonplace.  In your case, seeing is believing but blessed are those who believe before their answer to prayer is fully physically manifest.  You have to believe that you are healed before it happens.  That’s part of believing for a miracle.  🙂

Jesus said in Mark 11:24 (New King James Bible):

“Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.”

I recently attended Bethel Church in Redding, California because I had heard reports that children have been miraculously healed of autism after several visits to the Healing Rooms.  The Healing Rooms is where people from all over the world go to receive prayer from Christian people who have a very close relationship with the Lord and who are anointed to pray for people with faith, power, boldness and  through prophetic gifts.

I took my 20 year-old son with me, who was diagnosed with autism just before he turned two years of age due to a vaccination.  The medical profession to this day denies that there is any empirical research to prove that vaccinations cause autism, but I don’t believe this because independent medical doctors have proven that there is a correlation and I have met too many parents who told me that their children also developed autism after an immunization. This is one of the biggest cover-ups today and I know that this will be publicly exposed over time.

Getting back to our visit to Bethel Church, the prayer team prayed for my son.  They prayed against spirits of chaos, torment and confusion and prayed for clarity in his mind and for perfect chemical balance to be released in his brain.  The team prayed for healing for that which was damaged and which was not created at the beginning of my son’s life. We left very encouraged as I have begun to see my son speak new words that I have never heard him speak before.  I plan to take him back again and again until he receives the full, physical manifestation of his healing.
Jesus Guides the Doctors!

So, take heart, dear friends.  Trust God for your healing, even when circumstances don’t look good.  Healing is sometimes miraculous where it happens instantaneously and other times it is a process where it takes time.  Besides praying for healing in your private times with the Lord, it also helps to be in an environment where there are other believers who are also full of faith and will agree with you in your petitions to the Lord.  Jesus said in Matthew 18:19,  19 “Again I say[a] to you that if two of you agree on earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in heaven.”

God still performs miracles directly and other times through His servants.  And should you not receive a miracle immediately, trust the Lord to bring you your miracle over time as you trust Him daily to heal you or your loved one.  Take care, my friends!

Death of a Loved One

Losing a loved one or one’s life partner is one of the most painful experiences you will ever have to go through.  Death has come up repeatedly over the years as I have provided people solace as a professional counselor now for nearly 30 years. And yet, despite the heartache, it is important to count your blessings and to be thankful to God for the years that you’ve had together with loved ones.
‘Tis better to have loved and lost
Than never to have loved at all.

Death is never easy to face for anyone, especially when it involves the loss of your special lover.  But God always gives you the grace to walk through the valley of the shadow of death as He promises to take you by the hand and walk down that dark road with Him  It is even more encouraging when you know that your loved one was a follower of Christ, just as you are, which means you have the real hope that you will be reunited one day.

With this in mind, I wanted to post this marvelous, timeless poem written by Alfred, Lord Tennyson.  He touched on what it’s like to have a broken heart when your loved one dies, but he also stressed how important it is to be thankful for the fact that you did experience true love, something that not everyone experiences.

In Memoriam A. H. H. OBIIT MDCCCXXXIII: 27


I envy not in any moods
         The captive void of noble rage,
         The linnet born within the cage,
That never knew the summer woods:
I envy not the beast that takes
         His license in the field of time,
         Unfetter’d by the sense of crime,
To whom a conscience never wakes;
Nor, what may count itself as blest,
         The heart that never plighted troth
         But stagnates in the weeds of sloth;
Nor any want-begotten rest.
I hold it true, whate’er befall;
         I feel it, when I sorrow most;
         ‘Tis better to have loved and lost
Than never to have loved at all.

Happy New Year!

Hello everyone,

I want to encourage you to go after the Lord with all your heart with holy passion.  You are deeply loved by God and truly the best years of your life are ahead of you for as long as you choose to live for the Lord. would like to wish you a Happy New Year!

Jesus said in John 14:15, “If you love Me, keep My commandments.”  That means that you allow the tablets of the 10 Commandments that God has written on your heart to be your guide, to serve as your conscience, to take you on a righteous path that you are to follow and to keep you from a wayward direction that will only lead to death and destruction.

God’s will for your life is for you to seek happiness, peace and joy.  These blessings are for Spirit-filled believers who choose to consecrate themselves because they know that the world will only pollute them while seeking and living in God’s presence will bring healing, restoration, forgiveness and a true reason for living.  Choose eternal life, my friend, and leave your past sinful life behind you.
Seek the Lord with Holy Fire in 2016!


Jesus is only a prayer away and He deeply desires to fellowship with you.  James 4:8 declares, “Draw near to God and He will draw near to you…”  When you seek the Lord, He will be found because He loves you. would like to wish you a Happy New Year!  I pray God’s richest blessings over you and your family!

Does Anger Control Your Emotions or Do You?

Are you in control of your emotions or are your emotions in control of you? God has called you to be the head and not the tail. If, for example, you tell people that they make you angry or offend you, you are allowing your emotions to control you rather than you controlling your emotions. Blaming is unhealthy and immature and feeds into needless arguments.

But, if you say, “I feel angry with you when…you leave clothes in the living room, etc.” you own your own choice to get angry and express how your significant other is failing to love you by not being thoughtful. It’s ok to be angry but it’s not ok to stay angry.

Also, as important as it is to process your anger, make sure that you don’t yell, demean, or abuse the person you are angry with.  Always take a time-out before confronting someone, if you are angry at the time.  No one deserves to be the recipient of your anger.  Remember that the Bible commands you to not sin in your anger, which includes not venting your anger on an innocent person, and especially innocent children.
Be Respectful When You’re Angry


Ephesians 4:26-27 New King James Version (NKJV)

 26 “Be angry, and do not sin”:[b] do not let the sun go down on your wrath, 27 nor give place to the devil.

This means that you better work through your anger before the day ends or you will find yourself sinning in your anger because God only gives you to the end of the day to work through it. Failure to do so will eventually result in bitterness, unresolved anger, and much worse, sickness, disease and premature death.

One of the best ways to process anger is to choose to forgive, which the Lord commands us to do. So, if you’re struggling with anger, it could very well be that you put yourself in that prison yourself by choice. Forgive and be free, for it is the very heart of God.  Forgiveness will enable you to walk in love and peace, which you can’t do if you are controlled by anger. With this in mind, remember that you are to control your anger rather than allowing your anger to control you.

God bless you, my friends!

A Call to Righteousness

“Just because a Christian won’t support something, doesn’t mean they hate the people who are involved in it.”It means that a Christian will not compromise his values because he loves God too much to bend for society’s sake, no matter how much pressure society places on a Christian to embrace wayward values. God has called us to live a life of righteousness, not lasciviousness!  We have brothers and sisters overseas who are being martyred daily for their faith. That’s true guts and standing up for what you believe in and the ultimate act of allegiance to Christ!

Don’t let society bully you by saying you’re a bigot and closed-minded because you won’t embrace their new laws that promote a new way of living that does not value righteousness.  God and God alone has the authority to instruct us on how to live our lives and what those parameters involve. I believe Reverand Billy Graham said it best when he declared, “You can be so open-minded that your brains fall out!” This is exactly what has happened in America. Deception, lawlessness, selfishness and greed have become so pervasive in our country that people have embraced an “Everything goes” philosophy. This is hogwash!
Christians Beheaded for their Faith

God gave us a Bible, His love letter to us, so we could have a standard to live by and so we could show the Lord our love for Him and for our neighbors. When society tries to re-write the Bible for us and dare to tell us that wrong is now right and right is now wrong by attempting to force us to embrace a liberal lifestyle at the expense of forsaking our religious values, they have gone too far!

Proverbs 14:34 New King James Version (NKJV)

34 Righteousness exalts a nation,
But sin is a reproach to any people.

As Christians, we will not give in to liberal theology, wayward living, high pressure politics, wayward educators, or false religion that dares to steal away our Christian heritage. As I mentioned earlier, our brothers and sisters are being beheaded overseas for standing up for their faith. Knowing this, we can certainly stand up against radical liberals who have the audacity to call us bad names or insult our intelligence by introducing a false gospel to us.

Remember that God has given us the greatest power available to us to battle the forces of evil–the Holy Spirit! So, rise up, my brothers and sisters, young and old alike. We are in this fight against evil together and we will shall prevail because the Bible says so! So, let us start living like the champions that God has called us to be rather than cowering down to fear or evil.

Romans 8:37 New King James Version (NKJV)

37 Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.

Isaiah 54:17 New King James Version (NKJV)

17 No weapon formed against you shall prosper,
And every tongue which rises against you in judgment
You shall condemn.
This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord,
And their righteousness is from Me,”
Says the Lord.

Revival is Coming to America!

Are You Ready for Revival?

Will Spiritual Revival Save America?

Prepare for the Coming of the Lord!

What are your thoughts? Will Christians continue to be thrown in jail for not violating their conscience and Christian values that are centered on obeying the Bible simply because an ungodly Supreme Court has voted in favor of a homosexual having the right to marry? Kim Davis has already proven that the law favors the unrighteous over righteous people. It is time for all Christians to stand their ground, for you may very well be next in proving your faithfulness to God.
Prayer Meeting

Here is what the Word of God says about this issue in 1 Corinthians 6:9-11 New King James Version (NKJV):

9 “Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals,[a] nor sodomites, 10 nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God. 11 And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God.”
Millions of Christians Praying!

Are you ready for such a time as this? It is time for all followers of the Christian faith to pray for God to bring a spiritual revival to America that will surpass the Azusa Street Christian Revival of 1906. It will literally rock this nation and this world, bring everyone to their knees, bring salvation, healing, the baptism of the Holy Spirit and deliverance to millions. The Lord will move through this four-fold ministry, which is rare in Christian churches today.
People Praying at Sunset

Where will this start? With ourselves! As Christians, we must begin by allowing the Holy Spirit to convict us of all sins daily, and especially secret sins. Complete surrender must happen among God’s saints and then the Spirit of the Lord will set America ablaze. Let us completely surrender to God so He can take us to holy ground that we have never visited before. Then, people will see such passion, such fervor, and such a love for God that they will not be able to resist asking, “What is so special about you? Your eyes are like a flame of fire and your heart is full of pure love.”

They will see more than a reflection but the true image of Jesus and desire to have what you have. Are you ready to enter into the Holy of Holies as our forefathers did? Are you ready to relinquish all control so God can fully reign in your life? If you are, you are ripe for revival, my friend. Anything short of that is a counterfeit gospel or religion that only promises the mundane, the routine and needless tradition. God desires that you not settle for a wasteland of religious routine but the Promised Land of holiness that desires to fully reside in your life.
Holy Fire!

In Spanish we say, “Vaya con Dios,” which means, “Go with God!” But I say, “Vaya por Dios!” This means “Go for God!” Don’t ever settle where you are spiritually because you will grow stale. Seek a life of holiness, one that honors God, one that exalts Jesus as you give the Holy Spirit permission to sit on the throne of your life. Then, you will find lasting peace because obedience ushers in the presence of God.

So, don’t let anyone accuse you of being a hypocrite because you don’t agree with what the Supreme Court endorses. You answer to a higher court and it’s called the Lord’s Heavenly Court. God’s Court has a much higher standard and unless you live up to the Lord’s standards you will never enter Heaven.

The Supreme Court is spreading deception while the Holy Spirit always gives us the Truth about how He wants us to live. If you listen to the Supreme Court, you will be deceived and will have to answer to the Lord one day for having compromised the Gospel. God’s Gospel is pure, holy and absolute. It never changes. Remember that.
Circle of Prayer

Always allow the Bible to serve as your ultimate guide. Then, one day, when your life ends and you cross from death to life, Jesus will greet you on the other side and say, “Well done, My good and faithful servant. Enter now into the joy of your reward.”

God bless you, my friends!

Holiness Leads to Heaven Part 2

The Road to Holiness Leads to Heaven’s Promised Land!

Holiness Leads to Glory Land!

I have a friend named Maria who earlier this year was at her Hula Dance class with an older female friend.  Her friend suddenly started having pain in her heart.  Maria was concerned because she knew she had had heart problems before.  So, Maria decided to call 911 and an ambulance came to her friend’s aid.  Maria was with her at the hospital.

Shortly after, Maria’s friend suffered a heart attack and stopped breathing.  The medical team was frantically trying to get her heart to start.  After several tries in trying to shock her heart back to life, she finally came back.  When she was able to talk, Maria went to her side and asked her about this experience.  She said that she was aware that she passed from life to death and heard Jesus’ voice from Heaven tell her to go back because it wasn’t her time yet to enter Paradise and He still had plans for her to minister to more people. The last I heard, Maria’s friend was making steady progress in her recovery.
Jesus Will Greet His Followers at Heaven’s Gates!

It is certainly exciting and encouraging to hear when a believer has a death or near death experience and witnesses God’s presence in such a powerful way such that they’re able to come back to talk about it.  It is glorious to hear about the Heavenly reward that awaits any Christian who has dedicated himself or herself to the Lord.

Jesus said in  John 14:2-3 New King James Version (NKJV)

“2 In My Father’s house are many mansions;[a] if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.[b] And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also.”
A Heavenly Mansion Awaits God’s Believers!

These are very encouraging words from our Lord and Savior.  In these passages He assures us that He has a special place reserved for true believers of the Christian faith who have dedicated themselves to living for God throughout their lives.  How reassuring to know that a much greater place awaits us after our lives here on earth have ended.

Where are you in your walk of faith with the Lord?  Are you on the road to Holiness?  Are you as close to God as you would like to be?  If you were to die today, are you 100% certain that you would be in God’s presence?  If you aren’t sure, you need to be.  This is the most important decision that you will ever make and there is no room for doubt or indecision.

Jesus said in Matthew 12:30 that “He who is not with Me is against Me…”  Either we believe in Christ and have evidence to prove our faith by living a holy lifestyle or we don’t. It’s that simple.
Heaven is for Real!

Moreover, in John 10:27 the Lord said,  “My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.”  Those who know Jesus are prayer warriors.  They are familiar with His still, quiet voice when He speaks to them and the Lord knows their voice because He knows those pursue Him through prayer.

Are you a true follower of Christ?  If not, do you desire to know Him?  If that is your heart’s desire, please pray with me.
Heaven’s Gates Will Be Opened for God’s Followers!

“Lord Jesus, I confess to you that I am a sinner in need of salvation.  Come into my life and be my Lord and Savior.  I completely surrender to you as I give you my heart, mind, soul, spirit and body.  Make Yourself real to me, oh God.  I choose to follow You all the days of my life.  I invite You into my life through the Holy Spirit and I thank You that Revelation 21:27 says that my name is now written in the Lamb’s Book of Life and that I am bound for Heaven one day.  In Jesus’ name, I pray.  Amen.”

Congratulations, my friend.  You are now a disciple of Christ, a follower of the Christian faith.  I encourage you to pray and read your Bible daily and to find a Christian Church where you can grow in your faith.  Talk to a pastor about your commitment to the Lord so he can encourage you in your walk with God.

The Road to Holiness does indeed lead to Heaven!

Holiness Leads to Heaven

If you were accused of being a Christian, would there be enough evidence to convict you?

Would there be people who would step forward to say that you shared the Gospel, the plan of salvation with them?

Would there be people who said you prayed for healing or deliverance for them?

Would there be people who said you lent them a listening ear and a caring heart when their life was broken by the death of a loved or a gut-wrenching divorce?

Would there be children who would say that you touched or inspired them when you taught them a lesson in Sunday School?

Would there be a married couple who would come forth to say that you helped save their marriage when you imparted words of knowledge when they were deeply troubled or on the verge of divorce?

As you look back on your life, how will you be remembered?

Do you feel fulfilled because you have served the Lord and done what He has asked you to do?

Would you be at peace if you knew the Lord was calling you home to Heaven today knowing that you had fulfilled your mission?
Heaven and Jesus

Jesus declared in Matthew 7:13-14

New King James Version 

13 “Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. 14 Because[a] narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.”

Here, Jesus made it clear that there would be more people who don’t make it into Heaven than do, which is a tragedy, because Hell was intended for the Devil and his demons, not human beings.  Tragically, too many people choose the way of destruction by the life that they choose to live apart from God.  They allow their pride to guide them rather than the Holy Spirit, who lives inside of everyone who confesses Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and chooses to live for Him.

Philippians 3:20-21 New King James Version declares,

20 For our citizenship is in heaven, from which we also eagerly wait for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, 21 who will transform our lowly body that it may be conformed to His glorious body, according to the working by which He is able even to subdue all things to Himself.

All who know Jesus have a deep desire to live with Him one day in Heaven.  We are merely aliens passing through this earthly life headed for our ultimate destination.

Heaven Is for Real is the true story of the four-year old son of a small town Nebraska pastor who during emergency surgery slips from consciousness and enters Heaven. He survives and begins talking about being able to look down and see the doctor operating and his dad praying in the waiting room. Colton said he met his miscarried sister, whom no one had told him about, and his great grandfather who died 30 years before Colton was born, then shared impossible-to-know details about each. He describes the horse that only Jesus could ride, about how “really big” God and his chair are, and how the Holy Spirit “shoots down power” from heaven to help us.

This story became a book and a motion picture that touched the lives of millions of people. Granted, as followers of Jesus Christ, we already have the hope that we will one day go to be with the Lord after our lives end here on earth.  But when we hear of a story like this, it encourages us all the more in our walk of faith.
Heaven’s Gates

When I was in college, I had a wonderful friend and roommate, Michael Garcia, who came from a Catholic home.  I met his mother on several occasions and she was a beautiful Christian-Catholic woman.  Michael and I roomed together in the dorms and eventually moved out together to live in an apartment together until we graduated from college. Following graduation, we lost touch for several years as we began our careers.

A few years later, I ran into Michael and he shared with me that he was heartbroken because his mother had died recently.  As I extended my condolences to him, he shared a special story with me.  He said he was unable to be with his mother when she died because he had to work.

But two of his mother’s closest Catholic female friends were by her side at the hospital before she passed away.  They would later share with Michael that when his mother finally died, her two friends saw angels come into the room and escorted her mother’s spirit to Heaven.  As I heard Michael tell this story, I was excited as my spirit leaped, jumping for joy because I knew His mother was escorted into Jesus’ presence in Heaven.

True stories like these are so encouraging because it reminds me that as long as we choose to give ourselves to Christ and dedicate ourselves to living a holy life set apart to glorify Him, we have the hope and the promise that we will one day join Jesus for eternity.  What a joyous celebration that will be!

Pray for Healing With Reckless Abandon!

Don’t let anyone tell you that they’re a lover of God if they don’t obey God’s Word through their life style. God sees right through you. Obey God’s Word, walk in His will and you will find happiness, peace and joy.

If you carry emotional hurts, you have to seek God aggressively for your healing. In the same way in which you immerse yourself in your job or workouts at the gym with passion, don’t expect to receive healing if you are not actively and wholeheartedly pursuing the Lord for your healing. Healing costs you something–hours spent in prayer, the Word of God, felllowshipping with God’s people, meeting with a born-again, Spirit-filled, Christian counselor or pastor, fasting, reading Christian materials, being accountable to godly people and obeying what the Lord has instructed you to do.
Seek the Lord Fervently for Answers to Prayer!

You have to do something radical to let God know that you mean business in receiving your healing. Otherwise, you may wander in a dry desert for years. Time alone does not heal wounds. God heals wounds as you make sacrifices so you can change. And forgive, forgive, forgive or you will receive nothing from the Lord because God commands us to forgive.

If none of these things work, then you need to find an anointed man or woman of God who does deliverance because what may have you bound may be a generational curse that you have to be freed of. You need to be cleansed regularly from the evil influences that oppress you  daily in this dark world.
Seek the Lord through Fervent Prayer!

Pursue the Lord, my friend, with reckless abandon and passionate love until He answers your prayers. Too many believers simply give up along the way. You must tarry in prayer, soak in God’s presence and be relentless as you tug on the hem of His garment until your prayers are answered.

James 5:16 New King James Version

16 Confess your trespasses[a] to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man [or womans] avails much.
Seek the Lord with a Passionate Heart!

God must be pursued the way two lovers pursue each other. So, rearrange your priorities, fast from food and other things that possess you (your cell phone, computer, the internet, TV, etc.), shut out unnecessary noise and hear from the Lord so you can be changed from within.  You must consecrate yourself–set yourself apart from the affections of this world.

And remember–those who pursue holiness with see the Lord!

Jeremiah 29:13New King James Version 

13 And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart.
