~~~How to Hear from God~~~ – ~~~ Downloads from Heaven ~~~

I thought some of you who have not read my new book,Downloads from Heaven,  might like to read the recommendations along with my dedication page and the foreward – if you are interested you can order the book from me by writing to me at my email address of anointed2go@cox.net.  I have started to write my next book this week and have the introduction and two chapters completed.  I will share the title soon, but it is written very much like my first one where so many people commented to me that while reading my book they said it was like I was sitting right there next to them sharing the stories.  I am grateful for the opportunities I have to write, publish, teach, share and minister whether at churches, business, schools, healing services, seminars, conferences, universities, camps, youth groups, or in other settings and venues – it is a blessing and an honor for me to have these occasions to advance the Kingdom of God.

Encouragement, Biblical teaching, true-life stories, and mind-set challenges are all involved in Jay West’s book, Downloads from Heaven.  I love Jay’s conversational style of writing that should draw in every reader.  It can be a strange concept to some to think that we, mere humans, could actually hear from God and receive His direction, instructions, and knowledge.  Yet, Jay makes a clear case that the Bible does teach exactly that truth and that each follower of Christ can experience a word of knowledge from the Holy Spirit as a regular part of life.

 

In Downloads from Heaven, Jay lays the Biblical foundation for his premise, and then follows up with story after story of personal encounters that illustrate the Biblical truth.  People love stories!  And Jay West’s personal stories are fun and funny – a great way for everyone to see the simplicity of the gifts of the Spirit.  I love how Jay takes the “spookiness” out of walking in the Spirit that some Christians have been taught.   Continue reading

Thank you everyone for your prayers, financial support, encouragement and friendship blessings.

 

One of the definitions of the word “testimony”  means, “do it again.”   Revelation 19:10 says that the Testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.  I have learned and taught that every testimony that is shared, can also release a prophetic word in that same category or in the same realm as the testimony itself.  In other words, a testimony becomes a word of knowledge with prophecy for those that hear the testimony so that the same thing can then happen to those who listen to the testimony releasing the power of God to do it again.  Continue reading

Prayer Regarding Sandy Hook Elementary… by Max Lucado

Sandy Hook Children

 

Dear Jesus,

It’s a good thing you were born at night. This world sure seems dark. I have a good eye for silver linings. But they seem dimmer lately.

These killings, Lord.  These children, Lord.  Innocence violated.  Raw evil demonstrated. 

The whole world seems on edge. Trigger-happy. Ticked off. We hear threats of chemical weapons and nuclear bombs. Are we one button-push away from annihilation?

Your world seems a bit darker this Christmas.  But you were born in the dark, right? You came at night. The shepherds were night shift workers. The Wise Men followed a star. Your first cries were heard in the shadows. To see your face, Mary and Joseph needed a candle flame. It was dark. Dark with Herod’s jealousy. Dark with Roman oppression. Dark with poverty.  Dark with violence.

Herod went on a rampage, killing babies. Joseph took you and your mom into Egypt. You were an immigrant before you were a Nazarene.

Oh, Lord Jesus, you entered the dark world of your day. Won’t you enter ours? We are weary of bloodshed. We, like the wise men, are looking for a star. We, like the shepherds, are kneeling at a manger.

Vineyard CrossThis Christmas, we ask you, heal us, help us, be born anew in us.

Hopefully,

Your Children  sunset San Diego
