| In this particular part of the site, I am placing some of the
notes and letters that I have written to others over the years, that have
asked for, or needed help, in their lives and walk with the Lord Jesus
As a Pastor one does a good deal of counseling, so I truly felt led of the Holy Spirit, to place some of these notes, and letters here to help others as well. I have, (for obvious reasons), left out the peoples names, and anything else, that could possibly reveal who they are, and quite simply left the "meat" of the message, or council here before you.
I pray that these will bless you, and help you, as they have others, because so many are going through the same type, or kind of trials all around us, I believe there will be 'in each note or letter,' something to speak to your heart in some way.
I will add to this list, as time goes on, and the Lord leads. For now, I will only apply just a few notes to begin with as the list is rather long.
God bless you all!

Letter ( 1 )
Dear one, the Lord is revealing so very much in His Word, I am so excited, yet so burdened as well. I hear what the Lord is saying concerning His gatherings, and the 'Glory it should bring Him,' But I also hear him in his Time with me, sharing and teaching me that the things He desires in our gatherings, are not yet even in most of the individual lives as yet, so this 'presence can't come into the midst of the people and bring that Glory to His name.
We have yet to be a people in the earth of 'real Holy Ghost power,' we read about it in our Bibles, and in books, concerning the lives of the 'Great ones,' and we say, I sure wish I had that kind of power in the Lord, or I sure want to see that in our church. And all the while, the Lord has been 'patiently waiting,' for us to use what we already have.
One reason we do not, use the power we already have, is in the book of Acts Chapter 2: 42-47. The Lord has been truly speaking to me here in this passage, and I have taught it recently, and it has been a blessing, and I want to share it , (in part), here with you, and your family, and the body there, (if you feel so led).
It would take me a long time to type it all out here, but I will highlight it for you my brother.
ACTS 2 42-47
"They DEVOTED themselves to the Apostles TEACHING and to the FELLOWSHIP, to the BREAKING OF BREAD and to PRAYER.
There are here, several things, but all mean "ONE" thing, "FELLOWSHIP AND COMMUNION WITH, AND TO GOD."
The breaking of bread, and fellowship here, is not a home food feast, (that comes later), it is something that if you notice, is 'Latent in the "DEVOTION" to the Teaching, or Word of God, by the ones teaching it.
In other words, these people were "DEVOTED" to the Word of God, 'doers' and also to 'Communion with Christ' and to 'Prayer.' To be "devoted" to something, is to "give your whole heart over to it, to hunger for it, to pant after it, to be 'caught up' in it, to be fully given to a thing with all your being. NOT a hobby, NOT a pass time, NOT a once a week affair with something, NOT a meaningless ritual, NOT a mediocre association... NO, But, a full "PASSION" for the thing!
In this case, DEVOTED TO CHRIST, SHOWN THROUGH THE HUNGER HERE, FOR THE WORD OF GOD, COMMUNION, AND PRAYER, ALL IN 'FELLOWSHIP' WITH THE LORD, AND IN 'HARMONY 'WITH ONE ANOTHER.'
Now, as this is the HEART OF THE PEOPLE, and they are DOING THEIR PART, we see in the next verse what "GOD WILL DO," "Everyone was filled with awe, and there were miracles, signs, wonders, and "ALL" the believers had "EVERYTHING" in common.
What a picture here..... What a "REALITY IN THE SPIRIT." What simplicity, and truth, and "REAL CHRISTIANITY."
WE WORSHIP, TRULY WORSHIP, NOT LIP SERVICE, But really from a DEVOTED HEART, and Jesus does his part and performs through us, and among us, miracles , signs , and wonders. People are healed, delivered, set free, and you now when they got all this? "WHEN THEY FINALLY BECAME "DEVOTED" to the communion with the Lord!
The Healing/s and the deliverances, were not the real 'wonders here,' those things should "Follow every one who believes, Jesus said." No, I believe the deeper 'signs and wonders,' was the "REVEALING OF THE PRESENCE OF CHRIST AMONG THEM." ! The UNDERSTANDING OF HIS HEART, THE JOY OF HIS VERY PRESENCE, THE RECEIVING OF HIS REVELATION TO THEM, AND THE JUBILANCE, OF HEART, BY HIM BEING IN THEIR MIDST.
As we move on down through the next few verses in this passage we see ALL selfishness has vanished, there is no room for greed, or covetousness, there is a heart to love their neighbor as themselves, and it is demonstrated, by the fruit of the Spirit in them, and we also see now, another fellowship, but still a fellowship none the less with Christ, as they 'meet in their homes, and break bread,' this is not Holy communion, as it was in the first verse, but a communion of the Holy Ones! A remnant people of God, coming together, to share what they have in Christ with each other, and to welcome each other into their homes, and eat there food, and speak with "Glad hearts," of the love they have for one another, and for the Lord, and enjoying the "favor" of ALL the people, and giving praises unto God. And the "LORD ADDED TO THEIR NUMBER DAILY, THOSE WHO WERE BEING SAVED!"
What a "Glorious and magnificent" outcome! All this, is the "RESULT GOD BRINGS," to a people who will DEVOTE THEMSELVES, TO TRUE COMMUNION WITH HIM CONSISTENTLY!
GOD BE PRAISED FOREVER MORE!
DEAR BROTHER, I PRAY THIS, AND HAVE BEEN, FOR ALL OF YOU THERE. IT IS "MY GIFT," ALWAYS TO YOU!
I have included this next portion ( below ), to go with what I just shared, I pray all this will bless you!
I love you greatly, and the body there!
"SEVEN GOLDEN LAMP STANDS"
(Excerpt From A Message By )
Gary R. Kane
REVELATION 2: 1) "To the angel of the church in Ephesus, write: These are the words of Him who holds the seven stars in His right hand and walks among the seven golden lamp stands:
Beloved, here we clearly see that Jesus, "walks," among His Church, and, "oversees it." And remember, God's purpose, is never that men be glorified! But Jesus gets all the Glory!
God's purposes are so infinite, so much different than ours. Yet, He wants to make His will known to us, so He can have a people to Himself! A people who seek Him , and know His heart, and hunger for Him alone! This is why, "He is still leading His church." He wants to prepare her to be the bride "He desires" for His soon return. Did you get that last part? The bride that, HE desires!
You see, it is not what "our" idea of holiness is, it is not "our" idea of what our "gatherings" should be, or look like! But, He wants us to understand His ways with us, and in us, by the revelation of His Spirit in us, we must seek to know, and be sensitive to, the workings, and direction His Spirit is leading us, for each and every gathering! We must not make the mistake so many are making today, and think, well, this is the way God moved today in our service, so we must expect that each time. After all, that was a wonderful experience, and we certainly want more of that in our midst!
This is certainly all well and good, (that is, to want the presence of God, and His workings in our gatherings), But we must take heed, that we do not try in our own energy, to create and duplicate, that, "visitation," because, the Holy Spirit may have in mind a "different method," a different "kind" of visitation, in His ministry to us next time we gather! And if we are still, "hung over," on what He has done before, and try to recreate that same situation, we will most certainly "MISS" His will for us in His dealings, and the intended pathway He wants us to take. (which is simply to let Him lead each time, "as He wills.") Beloved, God is moving, and He is saying to us who have an ear to hear, what He has been saying to His people from the beginning! FOLLOW ME!
So, you see, God has His plans, His methods, His timing. But, we've stepped in and messed up most of them, with our own religious plans derived from our own pride. Our own agendas and selfish ambitions, to "look good," have gotten in the way of what God really has for us!
So, God has different ideas, and we need to know them, and get in line with them, and allow Him to prepare us to be a people," empty of self," and filled with the " illumination," of what the Holy Spirit wants us to be, and come to the place, that we can learn to wait on Him, and let Him have "FULL CONTROL" in our lives, and in our corporate gatherings, so the blessings of heaven can be poured upon us with His anointing, and not our own "mixture," which will not produce true life in the body!
Beloved, Jesus is truly walking among us, He's moving in our midst, revealing Himself, and His ways to those who will obey, and catch the "vision," and go His way. Again, He wants to make us a "prepared" bride, a people strong in the faith of Jesus Christ, ready for the days that are soon coming upon us!
Malachi 3:1-3), Tells us we are being "refined," "tested," "perfected," as a people being "made ready," for His coming! This too, must take place in our "gatherings," or we've missed the very point of the "refinement" to bring true purity to His bride. (I Peter 1:6-9), will help you to understand, that, when you ask for the "baptism of the Holy Spirit; It was a baptism of Holy Fire! Not just something you could walk away from and say, "oh now I can speak with tongues!"
I Peter 4:16; Tells us of His purifying judgment. It is designed by God to "cleanse," and to "convict." This is the third stage of having true revival!
Letter ( 2 )
Dear one, I realize your struggle/s and know the Lord will deliver you out of them all by Faith. WE ARE STANDING IN AND BY FAITH, IN A WAY WE DID NOT SEE OR UNDERSTAND BEFORE, AND STILL DON'T TO MUCH, BUT IT WILL COME, AS WE CONTINUE IN THE LORD, AND OUR FOCUS BE UPON HIM, AND NOT ON THIS MOVEMENT, OR THIS CHURCH, OR THIS MAN , OR THAT PREACHER, OR THIS OR THAT ETC. BUT OUR FOCUS ONLY BEING UPON THE LORD JESUS CHRIST!
THE ENEMY HAS POURED ON THE FIRE LIKE CRAZY, BUT, GOD IS FAITHFUL TO SHOW THE WAY, AND GIVE THE REVELATION NEEDED TO "TAKE THE GROUND" AND ALLOW HIM TO FIGHT FOR US.
WE MUST LEARN TO "PICK UP OUR MAT AND WALK," AND THAT COVERS A GREAT DEAL OF GROUND, NOT JUST PHYSICAL HEALING, BUT THAT MAT, I BELIEVE, REPRESENTS THE THING/S WE HAVE BEEN 'LAYING ON IN UNBELIEF,' AND 'MIS-TRUST,'
AND THE LORD IS SAYING TO US ALL, "PICK UP THAT MAT AND WALK." GET RID OF THAT 'MAT' OF FEAR, UNBELIEF, ANGER, SUSPICION, DOUBT. THAT 'MAT' OF WHATEVER IT IS YOU HAVE LET TERRIFY YOU, AND CAUSE THIS UNBELIEF AND DOUBT TO GROW IN YOUR HEART, "TAKE IT UP," ROLL IT UP, YOU WON'T NEED TO LAY ON IT ANY LONGER, ONCE YOU LOOK INTO MY FACE, AND TAKE ME AT MY WORD, AND MOVE OUT OF THE WAY, AND ALLOW THE HOLY SPIRIT, TO BRING THE RESULTS INTO YOUR SITUATION. AND DO NOT 'TAINT' YOUR PRAYERS, AND DEEDS, AND WALK, WITH 'REASON, AND FLESH.'
IN OTHER WORDS, WHY ARE YOU LAYING AROUND 'SPIRITUALLY' UPON THE MAT OF UNBELIEF AND DOUBT/S, WHEN YOU CAN LOOK AT ME, (JESUS), AND WALK AS I HAVE INSTRUCTED YOU TO?
SIR, A PASTOR TRIED THE OTHER DAY, TO PERSUADE ME TO MOVE OFF MY STAND ON THE AUTHORITY OF THE WORD OF GOD BY FAITH, TO BE HEALED, AND GO TO THE HOSPITAL, AND "GET IT OVER WITH," AS HE SAID.... AS HE PUT IT, "JESUS CARRIED A DOCTOR AROUND WITH HIM, NAMED LUKE!"
MY ANSWER TO THAT... HOW UTTERLY STUPID! JESUS NEVER TURNED ANYONE TO 'DOCTOR LUKE' NOT ANY WHERE IN SCRIPTURE, DID THE LORD SEND US TO MEN. NO MORE THAN HE SENT PEOPLE TO MATTHEW, FOR THEIR INCOME TAX HELP!
NO, HE SAID "I AM," AND HE "STILL IS"!
I THOUGHT I WAS IN A WAR YEARS AGO, IN A CERTAIN TOWN WE LIVED IN, CONCERNING, THE ONCE SAVED ALWAYS SAVED ISSUE, AND BAPTISM OF HOLY SPIRIT, AND TONGUES ETC, AND HOLINESS. SINCE THE LOCAL MINISTERS THERE, (MOST OF THEM), HAD TAUGHT THEIR PEOPLE THAT ONCE YOU ARE SAVED, "YOU CANNOT LOOSE IT" NO MATTER WHAT YOU DO, OR HOW YOU LIVE! AND WERE TEACHING THAT THE BAPTISM OF THE HOLY GHOST WAS 'NOT OF GOD,' AND HAD PASSED AWAY! I WAS TRULY IN A BATTLE IN THAT SMALL COMMUNITY PREACHING THE TRUTH, AND PROCLAIMING THE WHOLE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST.
BUT, THIS BATTLE WE ARE IN NOW, TOPS THE LIST! AND HOW VERY SAD, TO BE "RAILED AT," BY THE CHURCH CROWED 'BECAUSE OF SIMPLY TRUSTING JESUS FOR EVERY SINGLE THING IN LIFE!'
PLEASE BE SO VERY ENCOURAGED BY THIS LITTLE LETTER BROTHER. IT IS MY "OFFERING TO YOU," SO TO SPEAK, THIS, AND OUR CONTINUED PRAYERS, FOR YOU AND FAMILY, AND BUSINESS, AND CHURCH. GOD HEARS, AND HE ANSWERS! SO, STAND BY FAITH THERE, AND DO NOT BE MOVED BY WHAT YOU HEAR AND SEE AROUND YOU, N YOUR CHURCH, AND IN YOUR HOME, OR BUSINESS. GOD WILL FIGHT FOR YOU!
GOD BLESS YOUR EVERY BREATH!
HE WILL PLACE YOU INTO WHAT HE HAS FOR YOU, AT THE RIGHT TIME OF THIS LONG JOURNEY, AND UNTIL THEN, AND EVEN AFTER, WE "TRUST HIS NAME!"
I CURSE EVERY ENEMY FROM HELL, THAT WOULD PURSUE YOU, AND I PRAY THE LORD JESUS, OPEN THE GATES OF HEAVEN ON EVERYTHING YOU PLACE YOUR HAND TO DEAR SIR, AND MY/OUR, LOVE TO/ALL, IS NOT IN WORDS, BUT IN THE ACTION OF PRAYER, AND REVELATION, AND LOVE, AS MUCH AS WE CAN TO YOU ALL!!
Pastor Gary R. Kane
LETTER ( 3 )
I HAVE BEEN PRAYING FOR YOU, AND BELIEVING GOD TO DO WONDERFUL THINGS IN YOUR LIFE AND HEART.
DEAR SISTER, THE DEVIL IS A LIAR, AND WE NEED TO REALLY UNDERSTAND THAT, AND NOT ALLOW HIS LIES TO 'HANG OUT' IN OUR MINDS, FOR ONE MOMENT, THIS IS HIS BATTLE FIELD, TO GET TO THE HEART, THEN EVIL DEEDS ARE WORKED OUT AS "FRUIT" FROM THERE.
WE ARE, IN OUR FELLOWSHIP HERE, TRULY FOCUSED ON RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS, AND DEVOTION TO THE WORD OF GOD AND PRAYER, AND HELPING THOSE IN NEED.
WE DO NOT TOLERATE THE SCHEMES OF THE DEVIL, BECAUSE THAT ALWAYS DISRUPTS WHAT THE HOLY SPIRIT WANTS TO DO IN OUR MIDST.
I REALLY DISCOURAGE COMING HERE TO "HEAR ME," BECAUSE THAT IS JUST NOT THE REASON TO BE HERE.
THE REASON TO BE HERE, IS TO GLORIFY CHRIST, AND FELLOWSHIP IN COMMUNION WITH HIM, AND LEARN HIS HEART, AND NOT TO HAVE OUR MINDS ON OURSELVES AT ALL, BUT, TO PLACE OUR FOCUS ON THE BLESSED ONE, JESUS!
WHEN WE FOCUS ON OURSELVES, WE ARE ALWAYS BOUND FOR DESTRUCTION, IT IS A SURE THING. WE BECOME SO SELF ORIENTED, THAT THERE IS NO LONGER ANY 'VISION' OF CHRIST, BUT ONLY OUR OWN REFLECTION BEFORE US ALWAYS. AND LOOKING AT THAT REFLECTION, RATHER THAN THE GLORY OF JESUS, WE HAVE LOST THE ABILITY TO WALK BY FAITH, WHICH IS THE "ONLY WAY" TO PLEASE GOD, AND WE HAVE DECEIVED OURSELVES.
THEN BEGINS THE WALK OF DOING 'RELIGIOUS THINGS,' AND SOME HOW REALLY THINKING WE ARE RIGHT WITH GOD, OR HE IS PLEASED WITH SUCH THINGS, INSTEAD OF JUST WALKING BY FAITH, AND DOING GOOD DEEDS OUT OF GENUINE LOVE, AND OBEDIENCE.
AT THIS POINT, LIFE IS ONE VERY LONG STRUGGLE TO ALWAYS BE 'DELIVERED' OF SOMETHING, TO GET OVER SOMETHING, TO BECOME SOMETHING. AND IT 'NEVER' WORKS, BECAUSE CHRIST IS THE ONLY ONE WHO CAN BRING ABOUT CHANGE ,OR EVEN THE DESIRE TO CHANGE FOR THAT MATTER, AND WE HAVE LOST SIGHT OF HIM, IN THE 'FOG' OF OUR OWN IMAGE.
WE NEED TO FULLY TRUST IN THE LORD, AND LEAN NOT UPON OUR OWN UNDERSTANDING, AND FIND A 'TENT OF MEETING' LIKE MOSES DID, A PLACE TO COMMUNION WITH THE LORD, AND WALK AWAY FROM THOSE THINGS, PEOPLE, AND HABITS, AND MIND SETS, THAT HAVE BEEN DESTROYING FOR SO LONG, THE SWEET, AND 'GENUINE' COMMUNION WITH JESUS.
I PRAY THIS IS A BLESSING TO YOU.
GOD BLESS YOU DEAR ONE
Pastor Gary R. Kane
LETTER ( 4 )
DEAR ONE, We are really seeking the Lord, for His presence in our midst, to know Him, and be guided by His Spirit, with His direction for us. We do not want to be a sitting people, but a 'Going people,' THAT IS BY THE LORD'S DIRECTION. Time is very short, and there is much to do in the earth to prepare for the Lord's return.
We are not some 'elite group,' or the us 4 and no more mind set Church, not at all. Yet we do understand that this is the last minute before midnight, and that God is truly looking for a people being made ready as the bride of Christ, a remnant, that He calls His own.
Our desire as individuals, is to 'know Him better,' and to love, obey, worship, and serve Him. Our desire in our gatherings is the same, and we seek to understand, and walk in true fellowship with God, and function as a true body of believers. We are spending some time in the Word concerning 'relationship' with God, and the dealings of the Holy Spirit. We have truly been blessed by the insight the lord has given as I teach Acts 2: 42-47.
This is not to "camp out," on a portion of scripture, by 'no means', but it is a 'portion of scripture', that is very over looked in the Church, and quite frankly I have never seen it in operation but once in all my ministry. It is SIMPLY a portion of scripture, that leads us to TRUE, GENUINE, 'DEVOTION,' to the Lord, and to His Word, to communion, and prayer with HIM, in the gatherings, giving ALL glory to the Lord, and what DOES FOLLOW that MOTIVE, is the POWER of God in the midst of the people, and out through the people, for service, with the power of the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, which has now been STIRRED, from the heart/s being bonded to Christ in TRUE DEVOTION,'
This leads to hearts that are 'no longer tied' to this world, and the things in it. Unselfish hearts, giving hearts, hearts free from idolatry, and wantonness, free from carnalities, and material and spiritual lusts, free from self-attention, which all come from PRIDE.
This in turn, leads to a genuine, and sincere relationship with 'one another' as well, as the passage shows us in Acts. A people who have been DEVOTED in their communion with God, and DEVOTED to the giving of themselves, counting 'all things as loss,' and sharing with each other in a pure relationship, the fellowship of the Lord.
This is truly a passage of scripture, we need to have revelation in, and put to practice, along with, ALL the Word of God, that we have learned.
My heart was broke this weekend, as I received in the mail, a flier from a Church in the Metro-plex, that I thought was probably about the 'only Church' around here left, that was preaching a 'Pure Word.' But in their invitation to Easter Sunday, there was a big ad for the children to come and join in on the Easter Egg Hunt.
We have fallen away from the REAL DEVOTION TO CHRIST, and replaced that with substitutes, and fun, games, and Easter bunny's, and anything else, that will, 'KEEP THE FLESH COMFORTABLE,' anything that will 'LET THE FLESH HAVE IT'S WAY,' That is the Church today, "for the most part."
So, if we stand, it will be by FAITH, and the working of the Grace of God, by His Spirit in us, and causing our hearts to hunger and thirst after Him, and Him alone, with GENUINE DEVOTION TO CHRIST.
Soon, perhaps toward the end of this year, we hope to make the gatherings available more and more during the week, and not just once or twice. I would like to see folks coming in and out with prayer offered unto the Lord, and with a word, a song, a desire to spend some time with each other in the Word of God, and that "I WOULD FADE IN THE SHADOWS," and see the working of the Lord in and through the lives of the people, as they see that NO MAN, is their source, ONLY JESUS!
They can, and should, do the works of Christ themselves, and have lives completely DEVOTED to Christ, without a man having to persuade them, (in the sense of begging, and the use of fleshly gimmicks). All persuasion, should come from the Spirit of God 'within them.' God does the 'illuminating', and gives the 'revelation,' and then gives the 'inspiration,' to carry out the revelation given.
It's ALL JESUS. We just need to 'LEARN HOW TO GET IN ON IT.'
Pastor Gary R. Kane
Letter ( 5 )
There is much talk of love, as though it somehow rules out correction. Yet the Bible teaches that love speaks the truth (Eph 4:15), which may very well be "negative." Real love corrects those who are loved: "Whom the Lord loves he chastens" (Heb 12:6). Jesus himself declared, "As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten" (Rev 3:19). No wonder Solomon said, "Rebuke a wise man, and he will love thee" (Prv 9:8) - A wise man desires and welcomes correction and loves the one who corrects, considering rebuke not an "attack" but a kindness. Inspired of the Holy Spirit, Solomon declared: “Correction is grievous unto him that forsakes the way, and he that hates reproof shall die. Reprove not a scorner, lest he hate you: rebuke a wise man, and he will love you.
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding...but fools despise wisdom and instruction”. (Prv 15:10;9:8,10;1:7).
Pastor Gary R. Kane
LETTER ( 6 )
WRITTEN BY A BROTHER IN OUR FELLOWSHIP, TO ANOTHER BROTHER, CONCERNING THE BAPTISM OF THE HOLY SPIRIT:
I just wanted to encourage you dear brother...
I know that God wants to baptize you in the Holy Spirit and Fire, BUT you must be HUNGRY!
You must make a desperate cry to God, you cannot be comfortable...
You must ask - and keep on asking, you must seek - and keep on seeking, and you must knock - and keep on knocking... It is not that you can earn God's gift, no - he is so willing to give it... you must simply cry out and receive Him by faith... but, God is looking at the sincerity of your heart. If your heart is not sincere, admit that to God and ask him to make it sincere...
From Luke 16:9-13
"And I say to you, ask, and it shall be given to you; seek, and you shall find; knock, and it shall be opened to you.” For everyone who asks, receives; and he who seeks, finds; and to him who knocks, it shall be opened. "Now suppose one of you fathers is asked by his son for a fish; he will not give him a snake instead of a fish, will he?” Or if he is asked for an egg, he will not give him a scorpion, will he? "If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more shall your heavenly Father give the "Holy Spirit" to those who ask Him?"
This portion of scripture is about being HUNGRY!
(Being desperate for God, desperate to know Jesus more, desperate to have revelation of Christ, desperate for the power of God in our lives...) Ask for a FISH! Ask for an EGG! When we are HUNGRY, He will feed us, and fill us to over flow!
This scripture shows that we are to ASK for the Holy Ghost, and be baptized IN HIM, BY CHRIST.
At CONVERSION, the Holy Spirit baptizes us INTO the BODY OF CHRIST, and THEN, Jesus, baptizes us, in the HOLY SPIRIT AND FIRE, when we ask!
I am praying for you, to have that hunger for the Lord.
We all know John 3:16 - God so loved the world... amen!!!
John answered and said to them all, "As for me, I baptize you with water; but One is coming who is mightier than I, and I am not fit to untie the thong of His sandals; He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire. "And His winnowing fork is in His hand to thoroughly clear His threshing floor, and to gather the wheat into His barn; but He will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire."
Our God is a consuming Fire... You need the Fire of His Spirit!!! The Fire will burn up the chaff that is in our hearts, as God does a work of separation between the Holy and the Profane in the threshing floor of our heart.
The Fire of his Spirit will give you great boldness in the gospel!!!
The disciples after the resurrection of Jesus were hiding in fear, when they had the Baptism of the Holy Spirit and fire; they were BOLD in their witness.
They knew God on a deeper level. They knew his heart more intimately.
God wants to give you this gift - but he wants you to really want Him in "fullness"!
He wants you to really know him, and enter into fellowship with him above all else!
God bless you dear brother!
LETTER ( 7 )
Dear Brother in Christ,
I CONTINUE TO BE TAUGHT, BY THE LORD, THE SUBJECT OF "FAITH," AND IT IS AT A LEVEL THAT MUST BE LEARNED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE DEGREE OF THE FIRES I AM IN. WE MUST TAKE HOLD OF THE PRECIOUS PROMISES OF GOD LITERALLY, AND WALK IN THE WORD, BY SUCH FAITH, THAT WE ARE ACTUALLY ALLOWING THE SPIRIT OF GOD TO BREATH HIS VERY LIFE THROUGH US EACH SECOND. WE ARE ON THE EARTH, BUT OUR FAITH MUST REACH INTO THE 'HEAVENLY'S AND STAY THERE, SO OUR WALK WILL PRODUCE, THROUGH OUR FAITH, "HIS WILL ON EARTH, AS IT IS IN HEAVEN."
JUST AS JESUS WENT INTO THE TEMPLE COURTS AND "OVER THREW" THE TABLES OF THE MONEY CHANGERS, AND THOSE MAKING HIS 'FATHERS HOUSE,' A DEN OF 'ROBBERS', WE MUST COME TO THE PLACE WHERE WE CRY OUT TO THE LORD, AND BELIEVE WHAT WE ARE SAYING 'WILL' COME TO PASS...."LORD JESUS, OVER TURN ALL THE WORK/S OF THE FLESH AND THE DEVIL, AND THE ATTACKS OF HELL IN ME, SIN, INFIRMITY, PAIN, ETC, OVER TURN THEM LORD, AND DRIVE THEM OUT, WITH THE SAME HOLY ANGER, IN WHICH YOU DID IN THE TEMPLE COURT. LORD MY BODY "IS YOUR HOUSE", AND THE WORKS OF THE ENEMY, TO "ROB ME," OF THE JOY, AND THE PEACE, AND THE STRENGTH, AND THE HEALTH, AND THE VICTORY, THAT YOU HAVE "DESTINED" ME TO WALK IN "IS NOT WELCOME IN YOUR FATHERS HOUSE" 'NOW,' ANY MORE THAN IT 'WAS TWO THOUSAND YEARS AGO'... ! CAUSE THIS HOUSE TO BE A HOUSE OF PRAYER, (ON GOING WALKING COMMUNION), WITH YOU LORD, AND DRIVE OUT EVERYTHING, THAT HAS COME TO ROB, AND STEAL.
I ASK THE LORD JESUS, TO GIVE YOU THE REVELATION OF HIS 'UTMOST GUARDING, AND CONCERN, AND CARE, FOR HIS FATHERS HOUSE'. THAT IT WILL BE FORMED IN YOU/ALL, THE 'WALKING OF COMMUNION.' THIS "IS COVENANT." AND WHEN WE GET IN ON THE LIFE OF THE LORD, HIS MIND ,CONCERNING THE "GUARDING OF HIS HOUSE," WE WILL SEE THE NATURE AND CHARACTER OF GOD FORMED IN US, "IN ALL WE DO AND SAY!"

LETTER ( 8 )
Dear Pastor Gary
Thanks for allowing the Lord to use you to point out my lack of faith, fear,
A brother in Christ.
There is a PRIDE in the heart about that. Should we be Holy? YES.
In the mighty name of Jesus
Pastor Gary R. Kane
LETTER ( 9 )
( I got a letter from a brother who believes he's heard the call of God to ministry, according to the letter I received, this was 'my reply' )..
Well brother, praise God! I have been praying for you fervently. You have really been on my heart, and the Lord has spoke to my heart that there is going to be change, first in your heart, and then......??
Since we hung up the phones the other day, I have really sought the Lord for you concerning a "NO DOUBT," conformation, of your call to the ministry, or NOT. (to you). I have sought the Lord to reveal to you not only "This," but is it, 'keep my business' and preach, or let someone else run the business, and you step out in faith and 'go through' what ever doors would open for you to minister. I have ask the Lord to reveal this, and or, Lord, should he lay 'all' down and move on.
Also, Lord, show this dear brother if you would have him to make known to his Pastor, and other friends, his decision, (if it is to preach), and use these people to perhaps help get the ball rolling by recommending him to preach here and there, and things will move on from there, if this is all God.
I realize that God is the one who "makes a way, where there seems to be no way..." and He is the one who 'opens the doors,' and 'makes room' for a man's calling, and gifting/s, but yet, it is no shameful thing to 'let your call be known', and allow God to work through some brothers. But never forget, that God will place you, and bump you into people in a 'parking lot' if He is so inclined, that will invite you to do this or that. God has ways to keep a man moving with the gospel, that "only" He can do, and that, without "any" intervention from men. But if the call is a true call, and you know that you know, then by all means, let it be known, and let God take it from there. Do not promote yourself, or work out of the flesh!
Brother, in the calling of God upon a man, there will be a restlessness, a burning passion, a dis-satisfaction, with all else, when God has laid His hand upon a man. There is a feeling inside that there can be nothing else, no pleasure that 'satisfies' except to fulfill that deep branding of the Holy Spirit, that call to 'come up higher to Christ,' and know Him, and His ways and heart, so you can be prepared to go forth and wield the "sword of the Spirit," in a rightly divided, and anointed way, that carry's the power of the Holy Spirit, and brings all glory to God alone.
There will be a witness borne in the people who hear the man's message, even if they reject it, "they will testify' there was a power, and anointing, and supernatural presence in the air, in their hearts, upon the man bringing the message. What they do with what they have heard, is up to them, but they will know one way or another, that a man of God has been in their midst!
There will be upon this man, a boldness that no demon in hell can break through, a Holy Ghost boldness to "speak the truth in love," and never water down the Word of God for men, fame, popularity, recognition, ambition, or money. He will care not what any man thinks of him, and will speak "ONLY" what God has placed upon his heart, and NEVER what the people 'want to hear.'
Dear brother, I am really praying for you brother, and I KNOW that God is dealing with your heart, and your letter confirms that to me.
Some wisdom..... Just rest, and make the first priority to just worship and praise the Lord with all your heart. Repent of any and all things the Holy Spirit may reveal to you. DO NOT "strain" to hear from Him, but be VERY ATTENTIVE to His voice, because He already "wants to speak to you anyway."
Lay everything before the Lord, and tell Him so, and have no other motive, or strings attached.. Fear not, and let the Lord know that you simply want His perfect will and you are willing to except it no matter what it is, and come to Him with NO preconceived thoughts, or plans, or agendas.
In doing this, and being "fervent in it" God will answer you clearly as you worship, praise, and pray, and read His Word. This is NOT a formula, God is not into formulas, it is simply "communion with God," with a open and sincere, and honest heart "laid bare before Him." He always honors this kind of heart, a humble, trusting, believing heart, ready to accept what His perfect will and way may be.
Know that 'whatever' His will is... "HE Will PROVIDE!"
There will be a warfare in all this, you can count on that. But, God will give 'greater peace', than the devil knows how to handle. Do not analyze, or use human reason, "Let your request be made know unto God, and he will answer you, and make your path straight, and give you PEACE in what you hear from Him.
In the Mighty name of Jesus!
Brother Gary R. Kane

Dear Pastor Gary,
reply to your letter...I have seen, and been through all this my self in 27
years. I truly understand this kind of 'treatment' from the so called church,
and so called pastors, etc.etc.
nothing new under the sun. The book i sent you by my friend and part
mentor, Milton Green, will help you in all this. Please read it !
"religion" brother, not Christianity ! Plain and simple. I
deal with these kind of folks all the time. I have had quite a ministry to
pastors over the years, and have had my heart broke quite often, at the lack of
concern for the sheep. They are to busy trying to build a "flesh
kingdom," for themselves, rather than lead people in righteousness, and
build the kingdom of God.
play up to those with the money, as you said, and have no time for the so called
"little people." The reason for this is quite simple.. he
"little people," can't help them build their fleshly kingdom, and make
them look good, and so they can't go to a pastors conference and boast and brag
on all their accomplishments !
are "still there," God knows, and has a major purpose in it !
You can count on that. My brother goes to a dead Harlot church where he
lives, they will not raise a finger to serve God or "get their hands
dirty." But, the Lord has him there to "teach them the truth."!
just be a 'light' and allow the Lord to do the humbling in this Pastor, and the
people there. God knows how to do it. And when the time comes.. He
will have you share with them, what you have shared with me, and then, it
"may be time for you to move on," if they don't repent.
i was broken in my heart to hear of the ongoing pain and suffering, etc, that
you are going through... But i believe it is for a season, and i DO BELIEVE,
that God will heal you ! This is how i am praying. I do know, He has
much to show you, and as long as you remain humble, and teachable, He will
reveal Himself to you, and make all things known to you.
Isaiah 58, this time, ALL of it...In the first part, It will show
you "EXACTLY" the nature of the Pastor, and people, in that fellowship
of yours.... the part i sent you, was meant to encourage you, to know that a
close communion with God, and a heart for him, will bring forth the life and
healing to you, He desires for you to have and experience.
I have preached Isaiah 58 many, many, many times, and it is a powerful chapter
on the those who are religious, and think their Christians, and the part i sent
YOU, was to encourage the TRUE FAST of the Lord... a fast from self and sin,
from going our own way, doing as we please, and forgetting the Lord's Holy day,
( and remember, that is not Sunday, it is EVERYDAY OF THE WEEK), GOD DOES NOT
CALL FOR HOLINESS JUST ON THE "SABBATH" OR ON 'ONE DAY,' BUT
EVERYDAY! To enter His rest, is to enter in to communion with
Him everyday. Re-read the whole chapter brother, please. I believe it will
reveal the heart of the people in that church, and the blessing and favor
God wants to give to YOU. Be encouraged.
This is a correspondence from and to, a dear fellow searching for the truth, and trying to know "how" to even believe there is a God, and how to get to Him. This is only in "part," but perhaps it may help someone else along the way, who has intellect, getting in the way, rather than coming by faith.
Thanks for the care you have in helping me. After reading your letter and the associated message, I've come to the conclusion that if what you are telling me is true, I have a tremendous task ahead of me. To change a lifetime of beliefs will be a major undertaking. I wouldn't even know where to start. It may be easy for you to say "He's knocking on your heart, just let Him in", but it's not that easy. I haven't the vaguest idea of how to do it. Any ideas you may have are entirely welcome.
Not ideas, but Biblical facts! Sir, this is where everyone starts.... No one was born a Christian, we all had to come to Christ by faith... Let us begin...BUT, KNOW THIS! That SALVATION message I sent you, is the one you want to read over and over.... the answer to all the above questions, are right there!
I am very thankful to God, that he has once again answered my prayers, and brought you this far, to this point, saying, " I'm all ears, I welcome your help here, ".... You could just as easily have said, Pastor I like you, we're friends, but leave me alone with this Christianity business, and let's talk about something else. BUT, you have not said this, so, God is already doing in YOUR life, what I have ask Him to do! I praise Him for it!
Let's start with this,
You said to me.... " After reading your letter
Pastor, and the associated message, I've come to the conclusion that if what you
are telling me is true, I have a tremendous task ahead of me..."
First of all sir, we MUST establish one MAJOR fact.... What I am telling you, out of the Bible, IS most definitely "TRUE." We can go no further, unless you can accept this fact, that "God cannot lie," and is real, and is the creator of all things . NOW, you MUST understand, that to pull a cactus needle out of your hand, there is much pain involved, and it is not something the body, (or flesh welcome's ), BUT, the end result is "healing."
SO, that being said,
understand, that some things I will say to you, are "not" personal
attacks on you, BUT, I am just saying what "God"
says in His Word, about our situation. SO, allow the 'needle to come out'
and let God be God, and invite Him to speak to your "heart" not
head, and He will. Simply say, right now, God, open my eyes, and help me to
come to you......! He is not trying to get you to understand the mysteries
of the universe, and all the scope of life, although this is not difficult
either, because the Word of God, clearly tells us that "God spoke, and all
things were created." here we go now... Pride,
(which the Bible says is the character, and nature of Satan), cannot accept
this, or anything in the Word of God for that matter, because "man
wants to be God." This is what happened to Satan, when he was thrown
out of heaven. He tried to usurp authority over the Lord God, and was
"Thrown down like lightning....." The Bible tells us.
And mankind, ever since the fall, has been trying to be a "law unto themselves," their own God. Going their own way, and doing their own thing, and trying to remove GOD from every part of life. Satan, after the removal of his position, as Lucifer, an arc angel, and actually the leader of praise to the angels in heaven, around the throne of God, after he tried to become God, and take God's throne, and was thrown out, the Bible says he took a 3rd of the angels with him... This is what the bible calls demons.
Yes they are
very real, as are the Holy Angels of God also real, and all the rest of the
Heavenly host. AND, the host of Hell, that work upon the earth, to
"continue to try" and persuade men, that there is NO God, and they
should not listen to the Holy Spirit, who is also at work in the earth, wanting
men, (mankind), everywhere to come to the ONE true Lord and Savior, Jesus
Through Satan's rage,
of losing his 'want to be God act,' he, according to the Bible, has "waged
war," on all the Saints, (God's people), and the rest of the
"unbelieving world as well, which the Bible says, "He (Satan), has
blinded their eyes, so they cannot see, the glory of God...."
This is his job, and
he has had 6K years of doing what he does. Let me give you the basic elementary
beginning scenarios..... Take even Christmas for example, the day we are suppose
to recognize as the "birth of Jesus Christ." Christ-mas" . Well,
here comes Satan, and many hundreds of years ago, through a religious system,
(not Christianity), there is a MAJOR difference. Religion, observes rituals,
customs, traditions, and works, which elevates self and
man, and fleshly accomplishments, (sounds like pride, and the character
of Satan eh?), Christianity, ALWAYS elevates Jesus, and
Well, here come the evil doings of Satan, through Men, and devices a "Fictional character" called Santa Claus, rearrange the letters in Santa, you got Satan! OK, now, what does this character do? Well, it is on Christmas, (the day we should honor 'Christ' birth), Now the world mostly honors "Santa Claus." Point is, to take the "focus" off of Christ, and place it somewhere else. In this case a "fictional, non-existent character," who by the way, is supposed to know ALL about me, (like God), and is supposed to reward me if I am good, and no presents if I been bad, he knows everything about me etc... , Which would make him a divine being!
The gifts are
"elevated" not the "giver of life" Jesus, men are elevated,
not God. The "so called spirit of the season," is all on the giving of
gifts, what we can get, what we can have, NOT on what
God gave, "His only Son, who died on the cross for us as we are ,
sinners." No, the focus has been turned away from God, and on
to a "fictional character." Sir, "fiction", is " NON-REALITY,"
not real, does not exist.... Are you getting the small idea here? Satan is
trying to create himself still, to be a god, in fact, the Bible calls him,
"the god of this world." lower case " g ", and meaning, that
since his fall, and being thrown out of heaven because of his Pride and
selfishness, ..."he roams about the earth, like a roaring lion, seeking
whom he may devour..." I Peter 5.
The ones he 'can
devour' are the ones whom reject Christ, and
the Word of God. Now comes Easter, the time we should celebrate the "Resurrection"
of Jesus Christ form the dead! And again, Satan, through worldly religious,
unbelieving men, has caused them, like Eve, in the garden, "to believe
the lie." (which is Satan's character and nature as well). JESUS SAID
OF THE DEVIL, "HE IS LIAR, AND THE FATHER OF ALL LIES...). SO, now we have
Bunny Rabbits, and Easter eggs. They have now become
the focus, rather than CHRIST,
Sadly even among a great deal of poorly informed
Christians in the church.
look at the perversion here again, even to suggest that rabbits lay eggs!
Wake up folks and see the deception! Satan is a liar, a master deceiver, he is
doing all he can, (cause the bible says his time is short), to turn folks away
from the "One true God." Satan knows he's
going to hell for all eternity, and he is bound to take as many as he can with
him! Those who do not believe the Lord, and think they do
not need God, and have the same pride as the devil himself!
Now, it is not
"Christmas anymore, but instead, happy HOLIDAYS." Now, mankind, lost
mankind, unbelieving mankind, proud mankind, is
even removing the Christ word, out of the
holiday they celebrate unto Santa Claus!
What perversion, and what blindness, and stupidity, upon a people, who
"think" they are , as the Bible says of them, "wise in their own eyes..." (there's the Pride again!).
On we could go, and
let's not forget Halloween, total glorification of Satan, and his powers of
hell.... enough said!
for you. There are over 400 religious systems on the planet, and all
worshiping a 'different god.' (lower case g, on purpose). BUT, in NOT ONE,
of these religions, is there a Savior, who died for them, who worship 'said
god,' NOR is there a "LIVING GOD," in their
teachings. ONLY CHRISTIANITY can claim this TRUTH!
(i.e.), A living God, who is truly there for me, and who has died in my
place, with my sin, and " I " DO NOT have to WORK my way into His good
grace, or BE GOOD ENOUGH, or carry out TRADITIONS, and CEREMONIES, and do
certain RITUALS, etc, Which is ALL (self) = PRIDE ..... No I simply come to Him
by FAITH, and believe Him, an OBEY His Word!
good is a dead god?
What account is there
in a "fictional god," that never even existed? AGAIN, Satan,
has given to the minds of men, something to believe,
a perverted direction to go in. Believing in
Nothing at all, is a belief system in itself.
is far more difficult to believe there was a small red dot floating around
the cosmos at one time, and it exploded, and "Bang" HERE WE ALL
ARE! Or, that 'all we are now,' started with "Apes"! Like
the Santa Claus, and the Easter Bunny, so too, are these things "simply
fiction," and the meanderings of the imaginations of men, of whom Satan has
planted "anti-Christ ideals." Anything to
'turn men away from the truth! He even has them on TV. and in
pulpits. Sir, Satan will stop at nothing. If he cannot cause the absolute
unbelief, he will at least "Pervert" the
truth, so folks will be suspicious, and skeptical, because
of the perversion they see, instead believing the Truth. They, like
Eve, believe the lie, and are destroyed. There is real money, and counterfeit,
and there is ONE REAL GOD. Satan, counterfeits and perverts the things of
God, to take mankind down 'his' path, and away from God. This Hate and
vengeance towards the Lord will go on until finally the devil and his angels are
destroyed, along with all other unbelieving mankind, that said, "There
is no God." Or, "I don't need God." The bible tells us,
"The fool has said in his heart, there is no God!".... or I don't need
Madeline O'Hare, the
most well known so called "atheist" of all modern time, fought with
all her energy, all her being, all her might, all her very soul, to say......"There
is no God!"
There are no real Atheist, because, no one fights so hard, so long, and
spends their whole life trying to prove to the world that something DOES NOT
EXIST! How utterly foolish! NO, she KNEW God
is real, and righteous and Holy, and is Lord!
That is exactly "WHY" she spent a life time of hate, filled with the
devil himself, being 'promoted by hell,' coming against God. She had an "issue"
with the Lord, she knew He is real, and is GOD, and she hated him, just
as Satan, who filled her heart hates him, so she spent her life spewing out lies
and perversions and demonic venom, against what she KNEW is real, BUT, she had
"ISSUE" with. If something does not exist,
why worry about it! If it does not exist, it
cannot be a threat to me, or anyone else! Then she too, was finally destroyed in
a most hideous manner. Her son, whom she had brain washed, is now a Christian,
and spreads the good news of Jesus Christ!
So, we have
not went way back through the century's, or history, (yet), But we
have started in a 'simple place,' for you, to see the absolute foolishness of it
"religion" on the planet, requires some sort of "self- work, or
self righteousness" to get to heaven, or to their god, EXCEPT
Christianity! It requires Faith in the one who's
word is true, and died for us that we might have life. Yes God
does expect obedience to His word! I expect my children to obey the
rules, or laws of my house as well!
But, works, good
deeds, rituals, ceremonies, traditions, etc, such as the Catholic Church, and
"every other religion on the planet," require, in order to "make
it," is completely latent with PRIDE!
And the character of God, and His children is to be HUMILITY,
the very opposite. One
says, " I " can do it, the other says, "ONLY God" can do it!
Jesus tells us,
"APART FROM ME, YOU CAN DO NOTHING, BUT THROUGH ME YOU CAN DO ALL
tells us, we can do all things apart from Jesus Christ!
So we have a warfare,
the Bible calls it. Satan the god of this world, (meaning worldly system, no
wise saying he is in control and God is not, ), but rather he is the
"god," of the God hating, unbelieving, carnal, self-centered, worldly
system of mankind. To "this," he is 'their god,' the Bible says. The
Lord God, is God over those who love Him, and keep his Word, who obey and
worship, and believe Him by faith. No, Satan is not a god, per sa, he is called
the god of this world, as relating his relationship to those who will not
believe in the TRUE GOD.
closing PART 1.......
Understand, Satan has set up his kingdom of darkness upon the earth, to lie, and deceive and turn men from Christ! He does not mind if you go to church, and sing in the choir, (like some i know), but yet, have never surrendered their hearts to Christ AS LORD of their life, they are religious double minded people, playing a church game. This is NOT Christianity, it is pretense... and God hates it, choir, pulpit, or pews.
And the devil
has devised over the centuries, religions, that promise men freedom, and heaven,
IF, they will work their way there, or bow down to
statues of Mary, and call a man in a booth, "father" and believe that
HE can forgive sins, as though it were him, that were nailed to the cross
instead of Christ Jesus, of which the Bible says, ...."There is NO
other mediator, between God and men, except the Lord Jesus Christ!
But, again, Men want
to be glorified, and be like gods. And so from this, to the ones who worship
goats, rats, and fat Buddha statues, and those who beat their bodies, and cut
them selves, to the monks that think isolation from the world in a monastery
will make them holy like God, to the Satanists, and the professors I sat under
in seminary, one of the largest in the world, who did not even know God, 'most
of them,' all this, all the way down to the Sunday morning church goers, who
some, are the biggest hypocrites on the job Monday thru Friday, we
got perversion , of what is REAL, going on, in order to turn us away from the
Jesus said.... "
I AM THE WAY, THE TRUTH, AND THE LIFE, AND NO MAN CAN COME TO THE FATHER, UNLESS
HE FIRST COMES THROUGH ME..." Meaning to believe by faith, He is the Son of
God, and died on the cross for our sins, and repent, and turn from all sin, and
allow HIM to be LORD of every area of our life!
As I said to you before.... I cannot see the wind, but I CAN see the effects of it! I tell you my friend, there is no way in the earth, that a God hating, bar brawling, women chasing cowboy on a ranch, like I once was, that would mock Christians, disdain them, and curse the very name of God, a man who was to embarrassed to be in front of more than one or two people at a time, unless I could get attention and glory out of it, and never made it through the 9th grade, and had to go when I was 30 and get a G.E.D., so I could get into college, Theological Seminary... BTW, God told me after a season there.. RUN, you missed me, I am not here, get in MY WORD, and you will know me and my heart, and will.
I did that, in the
woods, back on the ranch, and He (God), kicked doors down for me all over the
country preaching the gospel, and placed me in one of the most well know
churches in America as the Pastor there, and placed internationally know men of
God in my life, as friends, and helpers....BUT the TEACHER
is ALWAYS JESUS, and Him alone! He
only uses men to spread the word, but the WORD is HIS! Now, I am no
longer in that Church, but have a small gathering of saints I minister to, until
next, God moves me on. It is all about following Jesus,
not a name, a man, a Church, a movement. There
are NO big names, but JESUS ! We better find our 'boast' in
There is no way, apart
from Christ Coming into my heart and life, by me surrendering to Him, and His
calling to me, one day, as he is doing to you right now. There is
no way, I could have repented, received something NOT REAL, and then got up, and
NEVER went back to any of my ways again, and then get up in front of countless
numbers of people all over creation, and preach the gospel of Jesus Christ, and
with real power, and anointing, and with real results!
My life, has been
completely changed, my desires, and my actions, and my way of thinking, not by
"force"... NO, BUT BY THE LOVE OF GOD!
SIR, this is so, very real, you just can't imagine, and don't even try. Just believe Him, and repent of all your sins, and ask him into your heart, and mean it, and then DO IT! Do not do it half hearted like most. Do it God's way, and you will not only be a NEW man here now, and filled with joy, and the power to overcome any and everything that the world and the devil throws at you, but you will also have a "PURPOSE IN LIFE," something most never have....
And that will simply be to love God with all your heart, and serve Him as he leads you to...... What a journey, what a walk, what a genuine real, true change in a mans life, and then have all of eternity to spend it with Jesus in heaven as well, oh yes, it is a very real place,..... so is hell. But only the faithful ones, the ones who love and obey His commandments will go to be with Him, and be transformed even now, as new creatures in Christ Jesus, not because one is a preacher, or on TV., or has a huge ministry, or does great things, or shows up on Sunday morning, and Wednesday night, or reads a Bible, no no no..... But those who have truly surrendered their whole heart to the Lord Jesus, and allow HIM to be LORD in their lives, no longer " I " that live, but Christ who lives in me! Those who do His will and love Him with all their heart, they are the ones that are His, and will enter His glory!
Please read this Salvation message the Lord gave me sir, http://www.bibleword.com/salvatn.htm
I believe with all my heart it will be used of God to bring you to His heart... God bless you!
Dear one in the Lord Jesus,
God is the answer to every situation we face, or are in, so we cling to Him and all His promises, and know that He will never leave us nor forsake us, or leave us as orphans. He will always care for us, and meet every need, by the riches and glory of His Son Jesus Christ.
This life will bring its share of trials and fires. There will be pain, suffering, and loss. Jesus never said everything would run smooth all the time. But the Word 'does promise' us that we CAN live in perfect peace in the midst of it, IF our eyes, (heart) , is stayed on the Lord, trusting in His love for us, not leaning on our own understanding, but by faith, laying hold of the promises of God, and standing fast in them, with great patients.
The Lord answers all our prayers, (when our hearts are fully his), and it is 'yes, no', or wait.'
The "wait part," is where most of the body of Christ fails. If they do not get an "instant yes," they feel as though God has failed them, or they listen to the devil tell them prayer and faith don't really work the way it says it does in the bible. Prayer and faith DO work! One thing we must remember, as in the book of James Chapter 5, It says is any among you sick, (lots of types of sickness), let him call for the elders of the church to anoint him with oil, and the prayer of the RIGHTEOUS man, WILL make the sick man well!
One reason we see NO answer to our prayers is we need to understand how to LIVE in 'righteousness,' and stay in harmony with the Holy Spirit, and in extreme obedience to God.
We cannot "earn" our salvation with good works of the flesh. But we must obey. Jesus said..."If you abide in me, and my word abides in you, ask whatever you will, and it will be done for you." Jesus said.. "Have faith in God, I tell you anyone who says unto this mountain, (the things that look impossible in your situation), be removed and cast into the depths of the sea, and does not doubt in his heart, but believes what he SAID, will come to pass, it will be done for him...."
The next verse tells us, and warns us, actually, that we must walk in complete forgiveness toward others though. If we do not, then we cannot expect God to Jump when we need help. He won't . God places a very high priority on forgiving folks... Why? Because He IS love, and because His ONE and ONLY Son Jesus, died for our sins, "to give us forgiveness."
So when we live in resentment, and bitterness, and hurt, and guilt, and anger, and won't fully forgive, as Christ forgives us, we literally are grieving the Holy Spirit, and saying, "Hey God your way is not good enough for me, I will not forgive completely, and walk in the love of God." Therefore, we place ourselves in a position to be open to the attacks of the devil, and his demons against us and our home.
Remember.....Just because there are trials and fires, and test, or trouble comes, DOES NOT MEAN, we are out of line with God..... Because in this world, Jesus said, "In this world, you will have trouble, but take heart, I have overcome the world..."
But most of the troubles I see in those I deal with, are "self inflicted" through sin some where in their life. We must "guard our hearts therefore, so that we do not bring a block between the Lord and our walk with him.
God knows your needs before you even ask. But He wants us to ask, to build our dependency upon Him, and learn to come to him by faith. Learn that we can trust him with everything, and that apart from him we can certainly do nothing to help our situation.
I want to encourage you and your wife with this, and I pray you will both benefit from it. I felt very moved by the Spirit of God to write this to you both, after talking with you.
God is Love... The one who lives in love lives in God, and God in him... There is NO fear in love, but perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment, (torment of mind, body, troubled heart, suspicious, unhappy, discontent, dissatisfied, unruly, hard, guilty, stubborn), the one who fears, is not yet made perfect, (or becoming mature in, or receiving, or allowing, or walking in), (Gods) love.
Walk in the Love of God, Rely upon it, trust him without second thought....He is there to deliver you, and walk you through EVERY situation!
