My Spiritual Journey

Jan. 6,2015

I want to bring two scriptures together.
Hebrews 11:10 (KJV)
For he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God.
Matthew 6:10 (KJV)
Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
Abraham had a desire to live in a world and culture where God ruled and ordered life’s daily course. I have ask the Lord for the eyes and heart of Abraham, whom was not satisfied to live in an atmosphere where man’s sin dominated. He desired what Jesus ask us to pray, “Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.”
I want to walk with eyes that constantly are looking for His will to be done on earth. I want to be heavenly minded and also be of earthly good. I need to always be seeking God’s view of the situations of earth. What would Jesus say and do? How can I be able to assist Him in seeing His prayer accomplished?
His plan is redemption of the earth. Most people think Jesus is going to all of a sudden come and make everything right. This may be true to a point, but not until we have had a chance to help Him take dominion of as much of the earth as possible. Redemption has two parts, eradicate of sin and then remake what the sin as messed up. Things must be put back in order. God told Adam to take dominion but Adam messed it up. Now we are asked to still take dominion and correct what Adam messed up.  Of course we do this by God’s help. That is why Jesus said, “in earth, as it is in heaven.” We follow Jesus’ example because He only did what the Father told Him to do. Likewise we wait; we look for the plan from heaven. We listen to the Holy Spirit and do what is issued from the courts of heaven.
I want to be found taking dominion when He comes, looking for the city made by God and standing on foundations that were built by heaven’s plans.

Be Heavenly Minded - Aligning your thoughts with heaven's whatevers so you can ask for anything.

Phil. 4:8 Finally, brethern, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praise worthy - meditate on these things.
John 14:13-14 And whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask anything in my name, I will do it.

To me these verses are related. They have to do with me aligning my thoughts up with Heaven, being heavenly minded. Then what happens is a trust relationship is established between me and the Father's heart. I can then ask Anything in His name and it is done.

Usually it is none in heaven before it is manifested on earth. Most of the time when it is manifested on earth it looks different than what I imagined. Also I often have to wait on the Father's perfect timing.

The Father loves to give His children what they want when we handle it respectfully and responsibly. Don't worry the Father is not going to put heavenly things into the hands of irresponsible children. As and earthly father you do not give the keys to the car to your child until you are confident they can drive it. You don't want them hurting themselves and others.

When we align with the whatevers we can have the anythings.

 Last week I had went to the doctor concerning my heart that had been diagnosed 6 months ago as being chronic heart failure. The doctor had run a sonogram test and announced there had been some change. I told him that there was many people praying for me. He smirked at that. He then told me to come back on Aug. 25th (yesterday) for a EKG. So I went and Zuzanna went with me. They did the EKG and the doctor freaked out (in a professional way). He said in his broken English, "We don't see this... Your heart is functioning as a normal persons. The heart has shrunk back to its normal size" ... "You can live a normal life" ... "Um...I can't explain how this happened...!"

This is the same doctor that told me 6 months ago that I would have this for the rest of my life. I would have to be on medication for the rest of my life; basically a enlarged heart never heals itself. He indicated I could die at any time. I told him then that I was read to go and I would not die until God was through with me.

I ask my friends to pray for me. Zuzanna ask our friends on facebook to pray. I was amazed, people everywhere started praying for me. Zuzanna and I were visiting churches here in Zagreb and they would request prayer for me.

The bottom line here is God did a miracle. He heard the prayers of His people and healed me. In no way am I special or deserve this healing. He is God and He just wanted to prove His love. I will forever be grateful to all that prayed for me.

John 12: 38 that the word of Isaiah the prophet might be fulfilled, which he spoke:“Lord, who has believed our report?
And to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?”

Genesis 19

Sodom and Gomorrah had less than 10 righteous people.

I think of many cities throughout the world that have few Christians. I don’t know what the population of Sodom and Gomorrah was but according to God’s conversation with Abraham, math was important.

I think of Belgrade, Serbia – It is estimated there are 700- 1,000 born-again believers among a population of  1.3 million.

If you want to help evangelize that city, let me know.

Ephesians 4 11 And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, 12 for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ,

I woke up the other morning and I was thinking about Evangelist. According to these verses in Ephesians, the evangelist in the "five fold ministry" are to be equipping the saints to be evangelist. Now I'm sure he would lead by example but his primary job would be to raise up more evangelist.

John 3: 20 For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. 21 But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God.”

The lost and unredeemed do not seek truth. Truth or logical facts are found in spiritually enlightened minds. Even that enlightened mind must have the peace of God accompaning it.
"Do truth" and have understanding
Act on that truth and good deeds are manifest.
"Done of God" - The glory of the good deed should go to Him
By product: 1) You will have joy when He gets the glory. 2) When you take the glory, pride gets a foothold; no eternal joy.
