The Word

“For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you:”

“God is grieved; Jesus was grieved; the Holy Spirit was grieved;

we certainly cannot anticipate any work of grace…above [this].”

Christ has a plan for you which was made some 2000 years ago and will last, if followed, f-o-r-e-v-e-r.  Sinner’s “plans” for pleasure, perversion, or power were made minutes/days/months ago and will last only till he’s “ten toes up with X’s on his eyes.” Jesus wants you but does not NEED you. Sadly, sinners need Him but do NOT WANT Him; He interferes with their “plans.” Foolishness !!!

The teenager, the mid-ager, the old,

the female, the male, the black, the white, the naturally learned, the book learned, the single, the married, the poor, the rich, the well, the ill are invited to create a Praying Place. Enter in willingly, yea eagerly and shut “the door.” Sit, kneel, prostrate yourself, or pace back and forth and have a two-way talk with God. Meet Him “face to face” in the Spirit, sense what He is like, agree with Christ’s assessment of you and your needs, known to you when you entered the closet or discovered there. No ministry on earth is so open to every human, regardless of their station in life as the ministry of prayer. Pray when no one knows. Perhaps pray where no one knows. Definitely pray about/for people and no one but God will know who made your list. Secret sins will take one to hell. Secret praying may well take one to heaven.
