"Healing, Angels and God, My True Stores" .... by James N. Knight.
Some events that happen in my life. First I grew up as a Baptist. But, when we moved to another town, my parents stopped going to church. I am now 60 yrs old. When I was about 12 yrs old, I heard a female's voice call my name, I was outside and it was dark about 10 pm The voice called me by my middle name 2 or 3 times. I ran into the house. I thought it was my mom calling me, when I got into the house, mom said that she did not call me. I thought it might be one of my sisters. But, one of my sisters was out of town and the other sister was across town, so I knew it was not one of them playing a trick on me. ------------------------- Please keep in mind that when I prayed to God, I was praying to the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. I prayed in the name of Jesus, (Yahshua and some know him as Yeshua). By the blood and authority of Jesus. The Jesus of Nazareth, the Messiah, the King of kings and the Lord of lords. The Savior that gave his life so that we could find life. My wife would always pray by starting to worship God first. To go before His throne. Jesus is the one that allows us to go before His throne. Then after worshiping Him, make a request or just praise Him. I have seen God answer my wife's prayers. I have learned to praise God first. I have also learned to use the word "Claim" to claim a blessing to get back what Adam and Eve gave up. Claim your healing, etc. The word Claim, I saw on TV the singer Naomi Judd use it when talking about her healing. I have also learned to use the word "Release" for God to Release the Holy Spirit to work in our lives, to Release His Holy Angels to watch over our son and now to watch over our grand daughter (her mother and her family, To Release His healing power into our lives, ect. Use Your Faith! Praise + Promise = Miracle God never runs out of miracles. The word Release, I saw on TV when Paul and Jan Crouch talked about using it when they prayed for the man that was carrying a large cross in Central America and his life was spared when he was prayed for. Praise + Promise = Miracle God never runs out of miracles.
--------- I always knew God listen to my prayers even when I was older and a sinner. At another time about July 06, 1993, I had a kidney that was painful, I went to see the doctors and had a CAT scan done and I was told I had a cyst. One evening I praised and worshiped God for healing. While during my praise, I heard a voice say " what is it you want healed?" I thought I was hearing things, The voice repeated the same thing. I said "what?" Then the voice, a male's voice, said it a third time. I forgot about my kidneys and said I wanted my nose healed, I had a deviated septum- surgery was preformed on my nose.... no blood, no pain . no insurance . no bill.. My nose was straight. I felt a hand touch my left arm. The hand pat my left elbow area and I could see the hair on my arm being pushed down as the hand patted my arm. Then the angel, who or whatever it was left.I don't know why I said that I wanted my nose healed, I just said it. In 1991, when my son was about 2 years old, I saw him protected from a piece of flying glass. He had knocked over a candle holder and the glass part of that candle hit the floor. A large piece of glass broke and headed right for his legs. I ran over to him, looked to see if he was cut anywhere. I could not find a cut or bleeding anywhere on him. In the entry way where the glass was broken, I could not find the piece of glass that I saw that headed toward him. There was only on table in that entry way and only a few things. I searched that area several times and could never find that broken glass. At another time, my son Robert jumping up and around on the loveseat. I saw what he was doing and I yelled at him to stop. Right in front of the loveseat was a glass coffee table. When I saw him jump up again, I was getting up to get after him. I saw the most amazing thing. I saw him jump up about 4 feet off the loveseat, do a 360 degree flip in the air, the land on his feet onto the floor between the loveseat and the coffee table. That was miracle. And said white boys can't jump? When Robert was a baby we had dedicated to the Lord. I believe that the Lord had sent his angels to watch over him. We also prayed for him each day and every day when he was older and going to school. In the summer of 1993, we were on a way to church on Loop 1604 in San Antonio, TX. My wife was in the passenger seat, my son was in the back seat and I was driving. I going about 60mph. All of a sudden a small sports car came upon Loop 1604 at a high rate of speed form IH-10 West. When that driver hit 1604, he lost control of his vehicle and started spinning around. His vehicle then came over into my lane. I hit my brakes as hard as I could. His vehicle was headed right towards us in my lane. As soon as I got about 10 feet from him (and from a headon collision) His vehicle moved sideways to my right and I pasted him, there was about six inches apart from our passenger mirrors. I thought I had hit him. I remebered that he had a young boy in his car with him. It was a mircale we did not collied into each other. On September 25, 1993, we lost a daughter, a mis-carriage, at that time I really started to pray again. I asked God to let me see her in heaven. He did not allow me that prayer request....I was still a sinner. With unconfessed and unforgiven sins, God was not going to let me see into heaven. Then I asked God if He would not let me see into heaven, then for Him to let me see a vision of hell. To lift the veil from my eyes. A few months later, God answered that prayer. I was sitting in my living room watching TV, when I noticed a verticle heat wave about a foot off the carpet and about 4 feet high and 6 to 8 inches wide appear in my living room. I thought I was seeing things, so I rubbed my eyes, but the heat wave was still there. I saw the seal that separated our dimension from the other dimension be broken and split by heat and by the demon's left hand. That demon's left hand was from another dimension. The hand was moving down the heat wave as if it was cutting an opening between the two dimensions. Then I got up and move out of the recliner I was sitting in by the fireplace and I moved to a loveseat closer to the area where the hand was. I don't know why I moved, I just know I did move. Then I saw two bright golden lights right above my head next to the ceiling. Those bright lights came over towards the fireplace and were moving at a very fast speed. I watched the lights and then I looked at the hand, the hand stopped moving down. Then the lights spun around like a tornado and got very fast and closed together at the floor At the area where the heat was, I saw the hand pull back and the heat wave closed up. Then the lights spun away and disappeared. I think those golden lights were a force or angels, they came there to protect me and to hold the demon back. The hand I saw was very real, it was a large hand, it looked like it belonged to creature that was 8 plus feet tall. It had a few thick wiry dark black hairs on the fingers and the hand was a dark gray color with dark black long finger nails. For the vision of hell: The other time, I saw a screen appear in front of my face and a curtain opened up. I could see trough the curtain. I saw hooded robed small creatures standing in a round looking kitchen and I saw one small creature dressed in a different color robe. That creature was stirring a large pot. The other creatures were just standing around probably watching the other creature. I could not see their faces, it looked black in the hooded area were the face would have been. Right away the knowledge came to me that this was food in the pot for the demons in hell. This was a kitchen in hell. Hell has different parts for different sins. . On Tuesday, December 22, 1998: I had been having problems with my car and the repair shop had not fixed the car properly. The car was sitting in my driveway waiting for the repair shop to pick it up. Christmas was coming up and we did not have vehicle to get to work or to go Christmas shopping. So, that evening my wife, son and I walked to the bus stop to catch a bus to go Christmas Shopping. We could not find a copy of the bus schedule on the bus and at the bus stop. After getting off the bus, We walked over to the mall and then to a Wal-Mart near by. . ____ As we were walking towards the bus stop to go home, my wife said let us pray that God will get us home safe and that we will catch the last bus home. It was dark and no one was around. I started to pray as I walked towards the bus stop, I know my wife was praying, I don't remember if my son was praying. I was walking a few feet in front of my wife and son. I turned around and I saw three men standing in the road talking. The youngest man looked about in his early twenties and he walked towards us. The other men just disappeared. I remembered that the young man walked up to us and said you cannot catch the bus at this bus stop. It was late and the bus will no longer stop here. I asked what if we are standing there and he told me no, not even it the driver sees you he will not stop. I asked the young man where he was going and he said he was going across the highway, Loop 410, to catch the bus over there. He informed us that we needed to walk down to the next bus stop and catch the bus there. He guided us toward the next bus stop. He was walking a few feet in front of me and my wife and son were right behind me on the sidewalk. As we came up the hill to an apartment complex parking lot, I glanced down to look at the sidewalk, and when I looked up the young man had disappeared. I looked around in the parking and in the street and he was no where around. He had disappeared right before me. I remembered he had a white tee shirt on, and had long dark hair. ( It was not until we got home that I realized that these men had appeared and disappeared right in front of us, and it shocked me. They were in fact angels or spirit beings that God had sent to help us get home). . ___ When we got to the bus stop, my wife and son set down for awhile, no one was around. I told my wife that the main bus stop was about a block away we should wait there to make sure we catch the bus and get on the right bus. So, we walked on down to the main bus stop. That bus stop was at Loop 410 and Bandera Road in San Antonio, Texas. We got to the main bus stop and we met a female (angel). She had came out of nowhere from the direction of a Target store. I asked what she was doing out late a night and she just said I just came from over there, pointed back towards the Target store. I asked where she was going and she said she was going up the road, meaning Bandera Road. She had no shopping bags with her. I asked her if she had a copy of the bus schedule, I had looked for a bus schedule at several different times and at different locations. She opened her purse, and I saw a bus schedule float up into the air out of her purse from a stack of bus schedules that were in her purse! She did not even look at the schedule, she handed it to me and it was the "exact schedule" (see copy of the bus schedule route 606) I had looked for. . ___ I remember her looking at me and smiling as my son, my wife and then myself got onto the bus( the bus and driver came out of nowhere ...one second they are not there the next second they appeared) when it had pulled up at the bus stop. That angel had such a warm and wonderful smile. I will never forget that night. At the time of contact with these two angles, I could not say or ask them if they were an angles, I just knew something was special about them. It was like something had taken over my thought process. It was not until we got home that the knowledge came to me that they were angels. Then at that time I was able to talk about it and tell my wife and son that the people that helped us get home were angels. . ____ On Monday, September 08, 2003, early that morning I was asleep. I was sleeping on my left side and at 4:25 A.M. I woke up for no apparent reason. I was still on my side and I saw a right hand, a female's right hand in front of my face. I looked at the hand and in a few second the hand disappeared. I wrote down all that I could remember about the hand. That information is as follows: the hand was or looked like a female's right hand, if I had to put an age with the hand I would say it was a girl's hand, a girl about 9 or 10 years old. The hand was a white color a soft white. I could see the wrist and there was a silver color chain bracelet on the wrist The silver bracelet had very light colored blue stones. I had noticed that there was about 3 or 4 chain links and then a stone. The stones were separated by 3 or 4 chain links and that was the way the stones were connected to each other. Could this be our daughter's hand, the daughter we lost back on September 25, 1993? I wonder if God was letting me know that she was okay. How I now wish I had touched her hand. At the time that thought did not come to me. But, if I could have, oh how I wish I had. I can only hold onto to the day when Iwill see her again and be able to hold her in my arms. What joy that will bring to my heart. . ___ There were a few other times, at one time a voice told me not to say some bad things to a person. It was not my voice, it was a voice that told me not to say those bad things. It was a male's voice. The person I was mad at had allowed something I owned to be taken away. The voice gave me the knowledge that all I own belongs to God and that I would not get mad at that person. I did what that voice told and never said anything bad to that person. And by the way I am not crazy. I don't take drugs. Even when I have pain, I don't like to take drugs. . ___ I once had a cavity filled by Dr. Frank Bond in San Antonio, TX. Dr. Bond, as I agreed to, did not use pain killers, drugs, gas or a shot to numb my mouth. He did use a clothes pin, place on my ear lobe several minutes before he drilled into my tooth. The mind and the human body are amazing. I believe in God and I believe Jesus was and is who He said he was. I plan to add more information at this site in the future. Please check back in the near future. Other entries will include other things that I saw happen that I believe an angel ( or angels) had a part. Please check back with me. These are true events in my life? I feel I should tell others and I have told some people. I have more I could tell you. One I remembed very well when I was serving in th army from 1966 to 1970. Another when I took 220 volts into my arm that came out at my elbow and hit a brick wall. A few more. Would like for me to add them? What do you think? Thanks, j n knight email@example.com
________ DREAMS. This dream is from my notes. It is now Oct 02, 2007. I had this dream in April 2005 during Passover. I will tell you the dream and then my own interpretation of the dream. Dream During Passover. Last Thursday morning in April 2005. I had a dream that was like this: I dreamed I was in a small fishing boat with my wife and son. The small boat was about 16 feet long. It had a small, but powerful outboard motor. We were in sallow water and we got a call that a man and a woman in another boat needed help. Their boat had problems and they were in deeper water. We went over towards them - I saw their boat was sinking taking on water, half was in the water and half out of the water. We went over to them to pull the woman into our boat. The woman was the closest to us and she was in the water. With the woman was a small white poodle dog. As we were getting the lady and the dog into our boat, I noticed the man swimming towards our right, but not towards us. Then I saw a large shark jump out of the water and bite the man across his back. I thought we were too late to save him. Then he went under the water. Then I saw him again, he was still alive- we pulled him in the boat with us. He said he was okay. We then went back to the sallow water. We dropped the man and woman off. Then I heard one of my wife's sister call and she said to come quick. We turned the boat in the water and past by her sister. We turned toward the white poodle - that was now on a larger rock surrounded by the swallow water. The white poodle was just standing there - not barking and not moving. I looked around and saw a row of house ( maybe 5 houses ) past the dog and the rock, across the water. I saw in the back yard of each house, the ground covered with beautiful green grass sloping towards the water. The yards were divided by chain link fences. One of the houses had a beautiful large collie dog chained to a pretty tree and next to a dog house. The dog just sat there. We went and picked up the poodle off the rock, put the poodle into the boat. Then we loaded the boat onto the trailer to head home. I think the dog was still with us. As we started home away from the swallow water, it started to get dark. Then I noticed a long tree limb trimmer (With a long pole and blade) laying across the road. I wondered who had dropped the tree trimmer across the road and left it there. Left it as if they were in a hurry to leave before it got dark. I drove the car with the boat trailer across the tree limb trimmer. I then told my wife that we needed to wash the boat and trailer to get the salt water off it before we go home. We stopped to do that and I woke up..
_______________ My interruption of this dream: The swallow water is closeness of salvation. Boat is a way to escape - is salvation. Jesus spoke from a boat. Noah used a boat. the shark is sin - death - devil salt - christian woman in water was saved, man was attacked by devil, sin. but was saved. saved once in the boat. Their boat sunk because it was not blessed by God, they were saved at the last minute, when they barely had enough time to trust God and His Salvation the small white poodle is the way the Gospel is preached today. cute, not much bite, rock in the swallow water is the church. No loud bark (or message) going out from it. Still unsaved people around the church, but not on the rock (the word of God) the large collie dog, represent the gospel, chained to the tree (God's family) . Gospel not released to the people. held back - chained. Pastors and Priest have held the gospel back. Tree trimmer ( represents the tool to graft us into God's family) To gather the harvest as a sickle. Laying across the road - no one using the tool to complete the harvest. To gather all that will come, salvation before the rapture. Time is short. darkness approached is the Tribulation. Washing the boat out of the water, many Christian will miss their Salvation - the Rapture.
________________ In April 2007, I had a dream that woke me up. I saw some words that (I believe God wrote for me) the words were written on something white, puffy like cotton and I was not sure what the surface was until one day on the way to work I saw what the surface was, it was a white cloud. What was written in my dream was " Woe, to the man that hasten to the Lord, but destine from His ways!" I thought that message was for someone else, mankind, but God meant it for me! What He was telling me was that my works was not good enough, my sins would keep away from Him. I had to repent of my sins to be like Christ! And to be with Christ! These words were not my words, I don't use the words woe, hasten or destine. But those words are used in the Bible, in the American Standard Bible, woe is used several times, and the words hasten and distine are used. 1 Exodus 9:19 Now therefore send, hasten in thy cattle and all that thou hast in the field; for every man and beast that shall be found in the field, and shall not be brought home, the hail shall come down upon them, and they shall die. 2 2nd Chronicles 24:5 And he gathered together the priests and the Levites, and said to them, Go out unto the cities of Judah, and gather of all Israel money to repair the house of your God from year to year; and see that ye hasten the matter. Howbeit the Levites hastened it not. 3 Isaiah 5:19 that say, Let him make speed, let him hasten his work, that we may see it; and let the counsel of the Holy One of Israel draw nigh and come, that we may know it! 4 Isaiah 60:22 The little one shall become a thousand, and the small one a strong nation; I, Jehovah, will hasten it in its time. 1 Isaiah 65:12 I will destine you to the sword, and ye shall all bow down to the slaughter; because when I called, ye did not answer; when I spake, ye did not hear; but ye did that which was evil in mine eyes, and chose that wherein I delighted not.
_______________ TRUE STORY for 2007 My son had recently graduated from high school and on July 21, he had his 18th birthday. We had a party for him on Saturday July 21. He had received some gifts and cash as presents. On July 24, someone had broke a car door glass window to his car and stole somethings. He had the glass window replaced, total cost was $171.00 and some change. Well, I was feeling bad for him, since he had to use most his birthday gift money to have his door glass replaced. I was praying (talking) to God, and I asked God if their was a way that Robert (my son) could get some of his money back. And since I had given Robert $20.00 , I told God that He could take the $ 20.00 off the $171.00 and not worry about the change. I asked God if He was really there and listening to me to let me know. On August 5, Robert's boss sent him to pick up some supplies, while he was out Robert looked down and found $151.00 God always has a way and He still listens!!! James N Knight
______________ God's Plan of Salvation The Bible says there is only one way to Heaven Jesus said: "I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father but by me." (John 14:6) Good works cannot save you. "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast." (Ephesians 2:8-9) Trust Jesus Christ today! Here's what you must do: Admit you are a sinner. "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;" (Romans 3:23) "Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:" (Romans 5:12) "If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us." (1 John 1:10) Be willing to turn from sin (repent). Jesus said: "I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish." (Luke 13:5) "And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent:" (Acts 17:30) Believe that Jesus Christ died for you, was buried, and rose from the dead. "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." (John 3:16) "But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners. Christ died for us." (Romans 5:8) "That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved." (Romans 10:9) Through prayer, invite Jesus into your life to become your personal Saviour. "For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation." (Romans 10:10) "For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved." (Romans 10:13) What to pray: Dear God, Heavenly Father, God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. My Lord Jesus (Yeshua), I am a sinner and need forgiveness. I confess all my sins to you. I believe that Jesus Christ shed His precious blood and died on the cross for my sins. I am willing to turn from sin. I now invite Christ to come into my heart and life as my personal Saviour. Amen @ "But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:" (John 1:12) "Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new." (2 Corinthians 5:17) Read your Bible every day to get to know Christ better. "Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth." (2 Timothy 2:15) "Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path." (Psalms 119:105) Talk to God in prayer every day. "And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive." (Matthew 21:22) "Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God." (Philippians 4:6) Be baptized, worship, fellowship, and serve with other Christians in a church where Christ is preached and the Bible is the final authority. "Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:" (Matthew 28:19) "Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching." (Hebrews 10:25) "All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:" (2 Timothy 3:16) Tell others about Christ. "And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature." (Mark 16:15) "For though I preach the gospel, I have nothing to glory of: for necessity is laid upon me; yea, woe is unto me, if I preach not the gospel!" (1 Corinthians 9:16) "For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek." (Romans 1:16) . I have place some new miracles (2012 -2013) at my newsletter www.praisetime.webs.com
I will also be writing out two dreams I had about heaven one was about a beautiful area where I saw my mother and sister in heaven. The colors were like in high definition. I talked to them. In the second dream I saw my daughter sitting on a white marble bench by a tree that was close to a blue winding river. I wanted to move closer to her and talk to her, but I could only look at her for a few seconds. _ ___________.
Why Does Satan Hate Humans?
The first I heard one of the reasons that Satan did not like the human race, was on a Christian radio program. That reason was because we (humans) could pro-create, have children. Similar to God's ability to create and Satan wanted God's power and abilities. The angels served God and the first man (Adam) had fellowship with God. Adam and Eve had it made on earth until they disobeyed God. God placed man upon this earth and when man disobeyed God, God did not remove man from earth. But God did remove the fallen angels. God gave His Son so that man could become His son. Jesus gave His life and shed his blood so that our sins could be forgiven. Without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness of sins. Because the angels disobeyed God, God had them removed and no savior was sent to them. Satan's evil influence over man will last for awhile. Man's fellowship with God can last forever. Man was given free will to make choices and changes in their life. We humans have a way ( through Jesus) to avoid the judgment of God. The fallen angels cannot avoid that judgment. I know that there are religions that believe that God had no son (Jesus). But, can you (as a man or woman) really state or place God with inabilities? You are just a human, your ways are not God's way! God's abilities far exceed what your mind could ever think. All things are possible with God! If your religion does not teach love towards all man kind then you need to look for God. IF your book of teachings does not promote love you have the wrong book. Jesus said that He is the only way to the Father which is in Heaven. You Were Meant To Read This? Have you ever wondered why the devil, Satan, hates humans so much? He knows that his final destination is the Lake of Fire in Hell. His goal is take as many humans with him as he can before his judgment is carried out and he spends eternity in hell - never again to deceive humans. But, Satan has had plenty of time and help to achieve his goals. He not only gets his help from a vast number and assortment of demons , but he has humans helping him as well. Not just the humans that worship him, but humans that commit evil deeds that advance his agenda. Murder, theft, abortion and pornography are just some of the devil's works humans are doing. Also, humans that are unaware of the devil's activities in their life or deny that he exist and fall trapped by his plans. I will now tell you why Satan hates humans. And if you think by worshiping him (Satan) you will share his power or gain his favor in eternity, then you are badly mistaken. If you think that, he has deceived you. Satan would never share his power with a human or anyone. if he had any power at all in eternity! Remember he wanted to be like God, above God. With that kind of ambition, you can bet he is not going to share any power. God had given Satan ( Lucifer ) a lot of power and control, and it was Lucifer ( an angel) that led the rebellion against God. Satan is not about to give up power that could be used against him, he craves power. That's his downfall. Satan does not strike me as the kind that would just behave and share. The Bible tells us that he will be chained up for a 1000 years during Yeshua's (Jesus') reign on earth. After the 1000 years of Christ's reign, he will be released for a short period of time and then comes his judgment. Someone that is facing chains for a 1000 years and then eternal punishment does not sound to me like that someone has power to share. Satan tried to have Jesus killed while he was a baby, If Satan could not kill Jesus as a baby ( as a child), he sure cannot do it now! Satan will never kill Jesus or rule over Him. Satan thought he had won when Jesus went to the cross and died on the cross. But, Jesus overcame death and the grave. God raised Him from the dead! Satan has no power other than the power we, as humans, give him to control or influence our lives. Need a little history? It was Satan and his demons that used Adolf Hitler and the Nazi SS to try to exterminate all the Jews in Europe. Germany paid the price for that attempt. When you follow Satan, you follow death and destruction. Fast Forward to Future history..... They will try again, the next time they ( Satan and his demons) will use Russia, Arabs and Persians to attempt to rid the world of Jews. They do not know the God of Israel, the God that neither sleeps nor slumbers will defend Israel. Once again Satan and his demons will be defeated. Satan is not the power base I want to follow. Those nations that join Russia will follow defeat, death and destruction. Satan hates humans, because: Humans were created in God's image. God created us (humans) to have a personal relationship with Him and He had started that personal relationship with Adam and Eve. It was Satan that came to earth to destroy that relationship. God has often referred to us as His children , as His sons and His daughters. Jesus asked "who are my brothers and sisters?", it was those that loved Him, accepted his teachings and believed in Him. When Adam and Eve fell and man needed a Savior, God created a way for man to reconcile that broken relationship, to restore that relationship, and that was through the life, death and shed blood of Jesus. Jesus made the way for us to get back that personal relationship with God and to go to Heaven. When Lucifer (Satan) and a third of the angels fell, God did not send a Savior to them, Satan and the fallen angels will pay for their deeds while we, as humans, can have Jesus take away our sins when repent and we accept Jesus. Jesus interceded for us to restore that relationship that man allowed Satan to split between man and God. We that do make it heaven will judge the fallen angels (1 Corinthians 6:3 ). Satan and the demons will no longer walk on the earth to deceive humans. Not once have I seen in God's Word where He called Satan, the demons are any of the fallen angels His children and not once are they given a choice between spending eternity in Heaven or Hell. They will pay an eternity for their sins and disobedience to God, while we through Jesus Christ are forgiven and accepted by God. God shares His home (Heaven) with those that make it to Heaven once they leave this world. God also share His power with those that make it to Heaven. Satan loses power in the end. That's why Satan hates humans! Why Jesus? God came to this earth (In HUMAN form) as Jesus ( in flesh and bones) so that we that are sinners could be saved. If God had came down to this earth in all His Glory, man / humans (all sinners) would not have been able to look upon Him and lived. Man would have died and could never have placed God ( in His Glory) upon a cross. What blood would God have shed to take the sins of the world away? The Bible clearly states without the shedding of blood there is NO forgiveness of sin. Only the blood of Jesus could have covered the whole sins of this world! Only Jesus was worthy to shed His blood for so many. God had one Son and that Son, Jesus' shed his blood to save all men. Yes, Jesus was born of a virgin and He died on the cross and rose to life on the third day! Don't try to limit God's abilities when it is man that is limited. With God All Things Are Possible. If you want to restore that relationship with God, you can, through Jesus. If you want to spend eternity in Heaven, you can, through Jesus. Jesus made it possible. Find a Church that teaches from the Bible and teaches about Jesus. It seems so strange to me that most people when asked where they would like to spend eternity in either Heaven or Hell, would answer Heaven. But now, next Sunday they have and opportunity to go to God's house on earth, the Church. But they don't go, they make-up some kind of excuse. Yet when they die they expect God to let them into His house in Heaven. I don't understand that reasoning, maybe Satan is still at working in their life. If he is still at work in your life, you still have time to get to Church. Satan was kicked out of Heaven, While Men (People) are going to Heaven! No, No sex in Heaven.......Jesus made that clear! So, those that strapped bombs to themselves and blew up innocent people, won't be finding any virgins in Heaven as gift. . They will just meet up with that old liar and deceiver, Satan, in the next life and he won't be in Heaven. Why is Satan is let out on the earth again after Jesus' thousand year reign? I think it might have to do with testing lives during those thousand years: During those thousand years people (those that did not go in the rapture) are marrying and having children. Those children are growing up and making decisions in their life. I think maybe Satan is let loose for a short while to test those people at the end of the thousand year reign of Christ on this earth. Plus, Satan has to be let loose to go before Jesus (the Christ)and bow down to Him and Confess that Jesus Is Lord! Life on this earth has always been a test. James N. Knight

Please keep in mind that when I prayed to God, I was praying to the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. I prayed in the name of Jesus, (Yahshua and some know him as Yeshua). I pray by the blood and authority of Jesus. The Jesus of Nazareth, the Messiah, the King of kings and the Lord of lords. The Savior that gave his life so that we could find life. My wife would always pray by starting to worship God first. To go before His throne. Jesus is the one that allows us to go before His throne. Then after worshiping Him, make a request or just praise Him. I have seen God answer my wife's prayers. I have learned to praise God first. I have also learned to use the word "Claim" to claim a blessing to get back what Adam and Eve gave up. Claim your healing, etc. I have also learned to use the word "Release" for God to Release the Holy Spirit to work in our lives, to Release His Holy Angels to watch over our son and now our grand daughter (her mother and her mother's family), To Release His healing power into our lives, etc. Use Your Faith! Praise + Promise = Miracle God never runs out of miracles. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. Romans 10:10. If, YOU have never accepted Jesus as Your Lord and Personal Saviour - Pray Today! A Typical Prayer Of Salvation: Dear Lord, I confess that I'm a sinner and I have sinned against God. I have done wrong. I am willing to turn away from my sins and repent. I'll do whatever You ask me to do. I know that Jesus died on the cross and shed His innocent blood for me so that my sins could be forgive. I know that Jesus was raised on the third day and now reigns with God in glory. I ask You to come into my life today and take control. Please forgive me of my sins and help me to turn completely toward You. I receive You as my Lord and Savior right now, today. I am a child of Your's - In Jesus' name I pray. Amen. ____________________
People that that saw Jesus. from the website: www.bibleprobe.com ￼ Physical Descriptions of Jesus: There are many assumptions of what Jesus looked like on the earth. Regardless of what He looks like, He is still worthy of our praise and adoration. However, for your edification, there are three ancient texts that give a physical description of Jesus and his personality. These were all documented either during Jesus' lifetime or shortly afterwards. Read about what Jesus was like Read the physical descriptions of Yeshua (Jesus) taken from people that saw him. The Description of Publius Lentullus The following was taken from a manuscript in the possession of Lord Kelly, and in his library, and was copied from an original letter of Publius Lentullus at Rome. It being the usual custom of Roman Governors to advertise the Senate and people of such material things as happened in their provinces in the days of Tiberius Caesar, Publius Lentullus, President of Judea, wrote the following epistle to the Senate concerning the Nazarene called Jesus. "There appeared in these our days a man, of the Jewish Nation, of great virtue, named Yeshua [Jesus], who is yet living among us, and of the Gentiles is accepted for a Prophet of truth, but His own disciples call Him the Son of God- He raiseth the dead and cureth all manner of diseases. A man of stature somewhat tall, and comely, with very reverent countenance, such as the beholders may both love and fear, his hair of (the colour of) the chestnut, full ripe, plain to His ears, whence downwards it is more orient and curling and wavering about His shoulders. In the midst of His head is a seam or partition in His hair, after the manner of the Nazarenes. His forehead plain and very delicate; His face without spot or wrinkle, beautified with a lovely red; His nose and mouth so formed as nothing can be reprehended; His beard thickish, in colour like His hair, not very long, but forked; His look innocent and mature; His eyes grey, clear, and quick- In reproving hypocrisy He is terrible; in admonishing, courteous and fair spoken; pleasant in conversation, mixed with gravity. It cannot be remembered that any have seen Him Laugh, but many have seen Him Weep. In proportion of body, most excellent; His hands and arms delicate to behold. In speaking, very temperate, modest, and wise. A man, for His singular beauty, surpassing the children of men" __________________
The letter from Pontius Pilate to Tiberius Caesar This is a reprinting of a letter from Pontius Pilate to Tiberius Caesar describing the physical appearance of Jesus. Copies are in the Congressional Library in Washington, D.C. TO TIBERIUS CAESAR: A young man appeared in Galilee preaching with humble unction, a new law in the Name of the God that had sent Him. At first I was apprehensive that His design was to stir up the people against the Romans, but my fears were soon dispelled. Jesus of Nazareth spoke rather as a friend of the Romans than of the Jews. One day I observed in the midst of a group of people a young man who was leaning against a tree, calmly addressing the multitude. I was told it was Jesus. This I could easily have suspected so great was the difference between Him and those who were listening to Him. His golden colored hair and beard gave to his appearance a celestial aspect. He appeared to be about 30 years of age. Never have I seen a sweeter or more serene countenance. What a contrast between Him and His bearers with their black beards and tawny complexions! Unwilling to interrupt Him by my presence, I continued my walk but signified to my secretary to join the group and listen. Later, my secretary reported that never had he seen in the works of all the philosophers anything that compared to the teachings of Jesus. He told me that Jesus was neither seditious nor rebellious, so we extended to Him our protection. He was at liberty to act, to speak, to assemble and to address the people. This unlimited freedom provoked the Jews -- not the poor but the rich and powerful. Later, I wrote to Jesus requesting an interview with Him at the Praetorium. He came. When the Nazarene made His appearance I was having my morning walk and as I faced Him my feet seemed fastened with an iron hand to the marble pavement and I trembled in every limb as a guilty culprit, though he was calm. For some time I stood admiring this extraordinary Man. There was nothing in Him that was repelling, nor in His character, yet I felt awed in His presence. I told Him that there was a magnetic simplicity about Him and His personality that elevated Him far above the philosophers and teachers of His day. Now, Noble Sovereign, these are the facts concerning Jesus of Nazareth and I have taken the time to write you in detail concerning these matters. I say that such a man who could convert water into wine, change death into life, disease into health; calm the stormy seas, is not guilty of any criminal offense and as others have said, we must agree -- truly this is the Son of God. Your most obedient servant, Pontius Pilate ____________________.
"The Archko Volume" Another description of Jesus is found in "The Archko Volume" which contains official court documents from the days of Jesus. This information substantiates that He came from racial lines which had blue eyes and golden hair. In a chapter entitled "Gamaliel's Interview" it states concerning Jesus (Yeshua) appearance: "I asked him to describe this person to me, so that I might know him if I should meet him. He said: 'If you ever meet him [Yeshua] you will know him. While he is nothing but a man, there is something about him that distinguishes him from every other man. He is the picture of his mother, only he has not her smooth, round face. His hair is a little more golden than hers, though it is as much from sunburn as anything else. He is tall, and his shoulders are a little drooped; his visage is thin and of a swarthy complexion, though this is from exposure. His eyes are large and a soft blue, and rather dull and heavy....' This Jew [Nazarite] is convinced that he is the Messiah of the world. ...this was the same person that was born of the virgin in Bethlehem some twenty-six years before..." - The Archko Volume, translated by Drs. McIntosh and Twyman of the Antiquarian Lodge, Genoa, Italy, from manuscripts in Constantinople and the records of the Senatorial Docket taken from the Vatican of Rome (1896) 92-93
Did you know that the Bible says that if you hate someone, you are a murderer? ( 1John 3:15 )
