The Spirit of God has made me; the breath of the Almighty gives me life.
Last week we learned that nothing under the Son is new because all things created are new in Him. God sees time happen all at once so nothing man creates is new since He seen it already. Christ gave us a new way to reach God and He is making us new by the sacrifice of His blood. As we enter 2013 let us remember Jesus is the new thing. If we focus on Him this year He will take us to a new level in our faith. This year the Lord is leading me to reveal the things the Lord has shown me personally since I recommitted my life to Him before starting Tuesdays Torch. Everything written here is revelation from the Lord but as we draw near to Him He begins showing us things concerning who we are called to be. We find His will for our lives when we press in and are obedient to do what He calls us to do. I was called to write Tuesdays Torch and through the obedience of writing it I have learned more about His will for my life. This Year will be a year of dreams and revelations revealed to my spirit about helping build the Body by building up its members so we can better work together. These experiences started in 2007 while lying in a hospital bed sicker then I had ever been in my life. My family did not understand why it happened so abruptly without much warning. I do have Muscular Dystrophy and with it comes respiratory complications but until then they never bothered me. During this month being in and out of the hospital I was reunited with my best friend Jesus and only through Him was I strong enough to pull through.
After doing a number of blood tests doctors found out I was retaining too much carbon dioxide. I was unable to exhale enough of my CO2. I was being poisoned by oxygen in the hospital where they kept me hooked up to it. Too much of what is considered a good thing ended up being a bad thing. We should do nothing in excess because the excess is what will bring us harm in doing it. Being overly righteous, wise or wicked can bring us to destruction (Ecclesiastes 7:16-17). We must not do things in excess it will corrupt us. Instead we must accept the message that will save our souls and truly we can’t get too much of Him if we let Him have control (James 1:21). During this time of too much oxygen my mind was seriously messed up. I was delusional, my vision was blurred and people looked like giants. I was conscience enough to be in touch with reality but I was scared. One night I had a dream of being in a fancy auditorium of some sort. The building was renaissance-ish and much of the expanse was golden. Suddenly it opened up and flooded with light. I saw a giant hand coming down out of heaven. Inside the hand descended on me as if I were a tiny flea. One finger seemed larger than a tall building but I was not afraid. Actually this hand was to protect me and I felt safe. This hand was the mighty hand of God and by its covering I was safe. There were some hard days after that but I focused on the hand of God and I would be ok. David says he knows the Lord gives victory to the anointed. In his sanctuary we are victorious by the power of His right hand (Psalm 20:6). We have nothing to fear if we have given our lives to Him. The power given Jesus is the power of His right hand and He will be our help in trouble (Isaiah 41:10). The Lord is stronger than all our problems. He created the mountains and the wind and through the Almighty we have our breath (Amos 4:13).
We will be expanding the reach of Tuesdays Torch to shine our light so others can see it and be saved. We pray the words of this Tuesdays Torch and every Torch will sink into the hearts and minds of readers. Please feel free to forward The Torch to others so we can encourage them with its message. If there are any churches or ministries that could benefit from the sharing Tuesdays Torch please let us know so together we can spread the light into dark places. We pray the Lord will continue touching every reader. All of what Christ did He did so we would believe. He told us not to believe because of what He said but in what He did (John 14:11). Every Tuesdays Torch we talk a little more about what He did and talk about what He is still doing. The best thing God has ever done was sending us His Son so we could be saved (John 3:16). If anyone is not a believer our prayer is that they will meet the Lord. If anyone wants to make Jesus Christ their Savior send a message to: firstname.lastname@example.org and we will help it happen. Look out for next Tuesdays Torch by email or find it on Facebook by searching Tuesdays Torch. Thanks and God Bless!
No one lights a lamp and hides it in a clay jar or puts it under a bed. Instead, they put it on a stand, so that those who come in can see the light. Luke 8:16
