The Door To His Presence

His Blood & His Power

Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.  And I myself am persuaded of you, my brethern, that ye also are full of goodness, filled with all knowledge, able to admonish one another.  Nevertheless, brethern, I have written the more boldly unto you in some sort, as putting you in mind, because of the grace that is given to me of God.  That I should be the minister of Jesus Christ to the Gentiles, ministering the gospel of God, that the offering up of the Gentiles might be acceptable, being sanctified by the Holy Ghost.  I have therefore whereof I may glory through Jesus Christ in those things which pertain to God.  For I will not dare to speak of any of those things which Christ hath not wrought by me, to make the Gentiles obedient, by word or deed, through mighty signs and wonders, by the power of the Spirit of God; so that from Jerusalem, and round about unto Il-lyrI-cum, I have fully preached the gospel of Christ.  (Romans 15: 13 – 19)

Paul was so in touch with the voice of God and quickly obedient to do as he was directed by Holy Spirit.  It is God’s heart that we do likewise.  One of our prayer warriors sent this picture to me a few minutes ago and it spoke to me so clearly; the revelation of the Gospel of Christ deposited into our spirit by Holy Spirit.  Holy Spirit is the One who will empower each of us to manifest Jesus through our life; through word and deed, and through mighty signs and wonders!

When God leads you to pray for someone, are you seeing God touch that person’s life?  I see God in many I pray for; they love and trust Him… yet the one I am praying for has a need physically, spiritually, or financially, etc.  Are we truly operating in the fullness of the Gospel of Jesus Christ?

Each of us must ACTIVATE our faith and BELIEVE God’s Word is true in order to SEE the manifestation of His glory in every single person, or situation we pray for!  All who have accepted Jesus Christ as Lord of their life is anointed through the blood of Christ and the Presence of Holy Spirit.  DARE TO BELIEVE; EXPECT TO SEE RESULTS!   (Mark 9: 23; John 14: 12 – 16)

  1. Prayer Point
    We learned in the last week that another senior pastor has been diagnosed with prostate cancer. Pastor Manuel Donoso of the Nepean Adventist Church, which meets in Barrhaven Ont, Canada, discovered he has an agressive form of the disease.
    1. Let’s pray for him and his family that they will be surrounded with grace and the peace of Christ will guard their hearts.
    2. Pray for a divine touch from God in his body that he might be healed.
    3. Let’s pray that the Lord would give the doctors working with him, great wisdom and skill.
    4. Let’s remember the church family as they support their pastor and walk with the whole family during this very challenging time.
    Pastor Manuel writes, “My heart is glad knowing that many brothers and sisters in Christ will be praying for me. My request is that the Lord may be glorify through this experience, that is all!”
    Thanks for praying.

    • Pastor Manuel;

      I BELIEVE GOD IS ABLE TO TOUCH THE BODY HE CREATED FOR HIS GLORY! I pray for great peace as you journey one step at a time; leaning fully and completely on the ONE who loves you so.

    JAMAICA MISSION UPDATE – JANUARY 2012
    “Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.” Joshua 1:9 (KJV)

    Happy New Year again everyone! 2011 was full of much joy; many miracles; lives changed by the God’s love; and yes, even a few challenges (wherein the Lord showed Himself strong on our behalf). We look forward to what the Lord has for 2012!

    We Praise God and are so thankful that because of your generous donations in December, we were able to give out Christmas gift bags to over 350 children. Each bag was filled with toys, writing tablets, pencils, erasers, crayons, chips, soda, candy, cookies, balloons, stickers, and pamphlets for kids, and various trinkets. We also served ice cream cones! We delivered almost 40 Christmas dinner food baskets to needy families! We have attached a few pictures of the Christmas treat events.

    Also, we were able to get major repairs done on our minivan: engine overhauled and front end fixed. The car doesn’t smoke anymore and burn oil like it was! Praise the Lord!

    *******
    As part of the vision for 2012, the Lord has laid it on our hearts to start a fellowship here in Kingston and also to have a radio program. We ask that you please pray along with us for the Lord’s direction in these endeavors. Meanwhile, we will continue Street Evangelism; Jesus Kids Clubs; participating in Summer Camps; and ministering Christ’s love in the communities of Kingston and throughout Jamaica.

    Here are two testimonies from Mike’s brother and his friend that visited with us in Jamaica.

    JOEL’S ARMY BAND – MY VIEW
    BY: DR. ROBERT L. WATSON, JR.

    “Off and on for three decades I have been vacationing in Jamaica, always on the north coast where the major resorts are located. My purpose for coming to the island nation was to absorb all the pleasures promised by the U. S. travel agents – sun, sand and surf. I was never disappointed. It was all there, just as promised. I enjoyed the resort life so much that I thought very little about life outside the gates of the resort, except to go sightseeing and buy souvenirs. The resort owners and the Jamaican government have perfected the tourist model…pick the tourists up at the airport, take them directly to their hotel, take care of all their needs and desires at the hotel, and when their stay is over, take them directly back to the airport. The formula works, for most tourists leave Jamaica extolling its virtues. And, don’t misunderstand me, the exclamations are well deserved. The only problem is tourists see a tiny sector of what Jamaica is really all about since all the money made by the Jamaican tourist trade contributes less than 20% to the national gross domestic product of Jamaica.

    “My perception of Jamaica has been demonstrably broadened since I visited Mike and Alice (my brother and sister -in- law) for a month in Kingston this past summer. I have now seen the other side of Jamaica…the real Jamaica: and it is not pretty. Of course the land is a paradise, but too many of its native sons and daughters are suffering. Jamaica is a country with a young population, but the children are wanting. Being somewhat professorial, the intellectual side of me needed to get a better understanding of why Mike and Alice: (1) care about the people of Jamaica; (2) what would compel them to sell all their earthly possessions and move to Jamaica; and how Joel’s Army Band was being received by the people of Kingston.

    “I traveled with Mike and Alice to the various communities they serve, five I believe, and met many of the three hundred children they serve weekly. I had the opportunity to meet many of their parents and guardians. It was truly a sight to behold. From the time Mike’s van turned onto the street, the children seemed to come running from everywhere, screaming “Uncle Mike, Auntie Alice.” Never have I seem more beautiful children yearning to learn about the word of God. They were on time, brought their workbooks and were prepared to participate in the class and the worship. They were eager to learn.

    “I was particularly surprised to see the high level of interest and participation of the parents. Mike and Alice have become members of their extended families. Not only do the parents look forward to the bible education for their children, they seek out Mike and Alice for social services, things that some city agency should be providing for the less fortunate members on their city. Walking through those neighborhoods nearly brought tears to my eyes, there was so much need and so little to give them. As I watched Mike and Alice minister to those poor kids, (some of whom will never make it out of the slum they live in), I could see that the services they provided, the bible teachings, the food they brought to the kids, the encouragement to study and stay in school, and the constant “hugs” all gave these kids hope for their future.

    “I don’t know how Mike and Alice do it all. Their days working in the neighborhoods are long. The resources available to them are minimal. I know that what they do is a true calling from God. If more people could witness the positive effects that Joel’s Army Band is having on the poor neighborhoods of Kingston, I am sure the amount of contributions would increase. I encourage everyone to support this very important mission.

    “Mike and Alice, keep up the good work! You have my continued support. “

    Jean Bryant writes:

    “Dear Mike and Alice, I really enjoyed my visit to Jamaica and my time spent with both of you. I hope one day life will afford me the opportunity to visit Jamaica again. I would love to visit and worship with you and your kids in the Jesus Kids Clubs. I admire both of you for your commitment and hard work. I think how blessed the children are to have you in their lives.

    “Sometime when I look at my grandchildren my mind returns to Jamaica. I see the children of Jaques Road, Jones Town, the community center and the children along the roads who have so little while mine have so much; I think: ‘how unfair’.

    “This was the first time I had visited a foreign country and had the opportunity to see what life is like. I am sure I only saw a small area, some so rich and many so poor. There were so many of the children I wish I could have brought home with me. Thank you for the eye-opening experience.
    I will talk to you soon. Love, Jean”
