Proverbs 3:5

Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.

Last week we began discussing the Beabled Fellowship part of the Christian Healthcare Commission (CHC). Beabled believers know they are facing battle everyday so they armor up to survive the fight. The Beabled dust themselves off and press on through with Gods plans until healing comes. Being disabled myself I have come to learn that our biggest obstacle is the mind. We can convince ourselves of many lies and feel condemned for not being healed yet. The disabled one and the church need a renewed mind so this doesn’t happen. In our new mind God will show us the way to handle every situation. Many think healing has to be instant but as we see in many stories there is a process sometimes before healing is complete. Sometimes healing is just trusting God to survive another day. The disabled often do not want pity it hurts to feel looked down upon. We should have compassion to help them but never just feel sorry for anyone. We must all cooperate both offering help and receiving it when others offer. We should not judge why others are not healed yet, only God knows. Jesus did not come to condemn anyone so we must avoid this terrible trap of the enemy. The weaker ones are without a doubt important and we must not lose them because we look down on them. The Beabled have learned things that some believers have very little experience in. At the same time they need the church to hold them up where they are weak. We each have our own perspective and that is what we gain from each and every person including the disabled.

The Beabled are an important asset to one another because they have been there. They are important to others and the church as well so we all can learn how to stand when faced with hardships. The Lord shows Himself strong in the weaker ones. They have learned to trust in the Lord with their whole heart despite not understanding why healing hasn’t come. We must not pass judgment on anyone because of their current condition or we might cause them to stubble and lose their faith. We cannot judge and we should not destroy others because of what we think of them (Romans 14:13-15). According to the gospel the Jews seem to be enemies of God but He still loves them because He chose them long ago (Romans 11:28). Those who live with disabilities may seem to be outside the will of God but this is not always the case. Sometimes the disability may remain for a season or a lifetime but it does not stop God from loving them and they too can be used by Him. Some people think being disabled is okay as long as they serve the Lord despite their condition. Whether a person is healed or not doesn’t make them anymore or any less a believer than anyone else who believes (1 Corinthians 8:7-8). Not everyone has had the same teaching or revelation we might have had concerning healing. As we grow up into the Lord we learn more about Him and soon things start falling off of us that we no longer have to hold on to. We all only know in part that is why the perspective of us all is important because without our piece the puzzle cannot be complete (1 Corinthians 13:9-12). Christ has given us all special gifts to equip us for doing the work of the Lord (Ephesians 4:11-12). We all share certain foundational truths but where we are different we are put together so His body can be built.

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: tuesdaystorch@gmail.com 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

Tuesdays Torch week 225

Tuesday’s Torch

John 3:17

For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.

In the past few weeks we have been introducing the Christian Healthcare Commission (CHC). In a series of dreams and downloads the Lord showed me some things about healthcare. Many are burdened down and living with physical, mental, and emotional disabilities in churches. These are the weaker ones in the body and by building these up we strengthen our churches so we can be a better body. The first part of CHC is dedicated to building up the weaker ones by helping them to hope while they strive for healing. Modern medicine mainly focuses on treating our physical and psychological conditions. The spirit has been long betrayed in this process but man is three parts Spirit, Soul and Body. If the spirit is left broken we have missed the biggest part of what makes us whole through and through. We cannot live without taking care of the spirit; if it is not well treating our flesh alone will not make us whole. Phase one of CHC is called Beabled Fellowship these are the ones seeking healing while surviving the fight. Beabled believers understand we must put on the armor of God to stand firm through the battles that rage on in our lives. Through Christ we know the victory belongs to Him and our battle will won. Beabled Fellowship helps give strength to the weaker ones so they can stand on the promises of God until He makes them whole. No matter how hard the circumstance the Beabled Motto is, “Shake off the dust, stomp your feet and keep on walking.” We must keep pressing on with the plans of God no matter how hard it may seem because He loves us and has our best interests in mind.

Having a disability myself I know the mind is often our biggest obstacle. Some disabled people feel like they are in the way, unwanted or embarrassed to be seen in public. Disabled people and the church need help so this doesn’t happen. Together our minds need changing so we all feel accepted. We must not conform ourselves to how the world thinks. Rather we must transform our thinking so everyone can have the best results. When we renew our minds in the Lord He will show us his perfect will in every situation (Romans 12:2). Many people in the church think healing has to happen in the blink of an eye. But many times healing is a process that takes time for whatever reason and all we can do is walk it out. Neaman had to dip in the Jordan River seven times to be healed of leprosy, the woman with the issue of blood suffered for years. The crippled man waited by the pool of Bethesda thirty-eight years and finally Jesus came along and healed him (John 5:5). Sometimes healing is just surviving today and trusting you will be healed. We should not worry about tomorrow because first we must get through today (Matthew 6:34). Many people feel that if they don’t get healed people feel less of them. Pity only hurts the situation but compassion is us doing what we can to help. We must be sympathetic and have the right motive when helping others or allowing them to help (1 Peter 3:8). It is not for anyone to judge why someone remains disabled that is between them and God (Luke 6:37). Condemnation is a terrible trap of the enemy and we must not lose people in churches because of it. Jesus did not come to condemn but to save and when we make it about Him everything thing gets better.

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.

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: tuesdaystorch@gmail.com and we will help it happen.

Matthew 10:8

Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse those who have leprosy, drive out demons. Freely you have received, freely give.

The Kingdom God is building is a place where all sick people are made well and no one has to suffer. Christ did this ministry and He passed it on to us and only through Him will healthcare be made whole. What was revealed to my spirit through dreams and downloads about healthcare came in three parts. For local believers in the church, the whole body and a better health care community. Phase one, building up local believers is one area where our church can grow stronger. By building up those who seem weak and broken we build our churches. No church is any stronger than its weakest link. God has chosen the weaker ones to shame the strong so they know it can’t be done without Him. If we think we are so strong we should build who we think to be weak to help them grow. We must help the weak so they can be delivered from what torments them. No role is more important in the church. The weak must be there with the great or it is all for nothing. The great ones need no introductions but the weak ones receive honor so there is no division among us. God’s power is made great in weakness because they need Him more. His power is in them so we should build them up so we wouldn’t trip up and become weaker ourselves. If we are no stronger than our weaker ones we only grow as a church if we help build them up. Through 2009 and 2010 The Christian Healthcare Commission (CHC) was planted inside of me. It seems larger than me but it is for me to be a vessel that He wants to use. So please take a trip with me as I introduce what I’ve been show from the Lord to share.

The CHC is committed to doing the work specified by Christ in the above Scripture. The main goal is to bring healing and hope to people who feel weak and burdened down because of some form of bondage. Modern medicine only focuses on making the body well and treating emotional issues in some cases. Man is also spirit and it cannot be neglected in bring healing to the whole man. He wants us to be sanctified through and through. The whole man spirit, soul and body is meant to be without fault until Christ returns again (1 Thessalonians 5:23). Christ has promised us healing, health and deliverance we should be free from everything that contaminates all three parts of us (2 Corinthians 7:1). The body without the spirit cannot live just as faith without works is dead (Romans 8:37). Man cannot survive without taking care of the invisible. CHC is committed to bring healing to the spirit, soul and body. Without taking care of all three parts we cannot be whole. Part one of CHC is committed to seeing those with physical, mental and emotional disabilities built up and trusting God for help. Beabled Fellowship is phase one of CHC. The main purpose is to lift up the weaker ones in the church so they can seek healing while surviving the fight. We are to put on the armor of God so when the enemy comes to attack we can stand firm against him (Ephesians 6:13-15). By giving ourselves fully to the Lord we know through Christ we have the victory if we stand on what He promised (1 Corinthians 15:57-58). The Beabled understand that through Christ we have the victory over whatever has us in bondage (Romans 8:37). We must stand firm on the promises of God so together we can walk in our healing and carry out the plan of God for our lives.

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: tuesdaystorch@gmail.com and we will help it happen.

 Psalm 82:4

 Rescue the weak and the needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked.

After we start moving toward the plans of God the enemy will try his plan to destroy us from being successful. He is a sneaky foe but if we focus on God he will deliver us. In a dream my grandma came to me and said the words Bethel, Shiloh and a word I didn’t know. Both of these places are called the House of God in scripture because that was where they met with God. Shiloh is where the Ark of God was and they knew where ever it went God was there with them. God honored the places and things man built for him but through Jesus He gave us a better way. God don’t dwell in anything we can build because He created everything we built it with. He made it that way so we would have to seek Him and in our seeking find the House of God. We can come to Christ our corner stone and be built up with Him into the place God wants to live. He has chosen to live inside of us so where we go he goes to and through Christ we can always have fellowship with God. He is building us and all His plans into a city of Gods design where we can be with Him forever. Part of the kingdom He is building is a place where no one is sick or in need of anything other than Him. Jesus did the work of healing in His ministry and he passed that work onto us. In the world some healing looks different than what Jesus did but they recognize it is the duty of man to do it. Jesus only can fill the hole in healthcare so it must start in the church.

What the Lord revealed to me came in three parts; in the local church, for the body of believers and for the medical community. Phase one is what we can do now in each of our churches to build up or local fellowship. This section is most detailed and will take a few months to cover but it is a good place to start strengthening our churches. To get a stronger church is simple really; we must start at the bottom with those who seem to be the weaker ones. No church is any stronger then the weakest member of its congregation. God has chosen the weak things of the world to bring shame to the strong (1 Corinthians 1:27). Being a stronger believer is not bad if in our shame we build the weaker ones so they can grow. Those who think they are stronger should help bear the burdens of those who seem weak. This will please them and build them up stronger in their faith (Romans 15:1-2). We are to help rescue those who are weaker so they can be delivered from the grasp of the enemy. No one can say they are more important because they’re healthier, have more faith or play a bigger role. The weaker ones are those that have the greatest importance in to God. They receive special honor because their role is important no matter how small we think it is. Those parts that are known for their role need no special introduction because they have the strength and position of greatest value. The parts with lesser value need to be honored so they can have equal importance. There should be no division among us (1 Corinthians 12:21-26). The power of God is made perfect in weakness because they need God the most. We should embrace and build up the weaker ones because the power of God rests on them (2 Corinthians 12:9). If anyone is caught in sin or any trouble we should build them up because we might be down someday to. By carrying the burdens of the weaker ones we fulfill the law of Christ and the church grows stronger (Galatians 6:1-2).

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.

 Hebrews 11:10

 He was looking forward to the city with foundations, whose architect and builder is God.

The plans that we have that are from God will more than likely be challenged by the enemy who has plans of his own. In 2010 I had a dream of an evil bat creature trying to scare my mom and I so we wouldn’t move from our house. It wanted us to stay where we were comfortable so we wouldn’t move forward into new things. Though our plans seem impossible we should see them fulfilling all Gods purpose. Our plans usually will come with obstacles strategically placed by the enemy to keep us from success. We are being pulled in both directions like a tug of war. The side we favor most will pull us into destiny or destruction. The enemy’s plans are to kill, steal and destroy us in any way he can. He wants to destroy all the plans of God inside of us. But God gives us an abundant life where our plans succeed. To overcome the enemy we must fight him using the divine power God placed inside of us. We must put on our armor and stand guard so his attacks cannot harm us. The spiritual weapons we fight him with are prayer, faith and the word of God to tear down the stronghold the enemy has on us. The enemy plans our destruction but the blood of the lamb tells us there is a better way. Later in 2010 I had a dream that my grandma was visiting and I heard her say three words. She said Bethel, Shiloh and the last word I couldn’t understand but they were all related. Bethel and Shiloh both are places people went where they could reach out to God and meet with Him.

Jacob when fleeing from his brother fell asleep and had a dream of a ladder into heaven at the place where Abraham met with God years earlier. When he awoke Jacob knew the Lord was there so he named the place Bethel meaning the House of God (Genesis 28:16-19). For generations after him this place remained holy and men would go there to meet the Lord. When Samuel was committed to become a prophet he was brought to the House of God at Shiloh (Samuel 1:24). The Ark of the Covenant was at rest in Shiloh so that was where the Spirit of the Lord dwelled among them. Samuel would go to that place to seek the Lord who would reveal Himself through His word (Samuel 3:21). Sometimes the leaders of Israel would need to carry the Ark before them so that in essence God would be with them. They did this so God could be with them and save them from being defeated again by their enemies (Samuel 4:3). God did honor these places as the place where He would meet with the people but through Christ we have been given a better covenant. God does not dwell in anything man can build. God needs nothing from us; He gave us our life and created everything we could possibly serve Him with. He made it like that so we would seek Him and find Him. He is not far from us if we will seek Him then we to will find the House of God (Acts 17:24-27). Now we can come to Christ the living stone rejected by men and chosen by God to be the corner stone we build on. Being living stones also we are being built into the House of God. We are to offer Him spiritual sacrifices like praise and thanksgiving because we are His House and He visits us there (1 Peter 2:4-5). God is making us all part of the city He is building when we follow Jesus and the plans of our great architect.

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).
