Deep Thought: Power of Forgiveness shown in my life so far…

Lately, this theme of forgiveness has been circulating where ever I go. I had to “let it out” and write about it. I ran into this video on “spiritual warfare” and the speaker shared this quote that really resonated in me…

“The devil loses, when you forgive..” Any personal stories, feedback, etc..? more..

Above is a post I shared in one of my groups (Good News Love) I created on facebook. I’ve heard there is power when we forgive each other, so I would like to start…

If any of my friends read this, please forgive me if I ever wronged you in anyway. I might’ve forgotten it, so please feel free to contact me and remind me if this will help release any resentment, offense, or hurt that will heal you.

*see other Bible verses on forgiveness

One of the causes of “offense” is due to misunderstanding, which we all quickly prejudge. There are times I reflect on my parents fighting and it’s due to the “failure to communicate” (see “Failure to Communicate”-song I wrote). Can you relate? Feel free to share below…

For those that haven’t met me yet or haven’t encountered any offense from me…yet! 😉 I’m sure there are others that might’ve hurt you in various ways (e.g. abuse). Unfortunately, you might not ever get them to forgive you. However, God (Heavenly Father) knows and I encourage you to go to Him for healing of your past hurts.

I’ll share some of my forgiveness stories:

Back in high school, a former “friend” of mine wanted to befriend me after “ignoring” me most of the later years of “middle school”. Not being a Christian at the time, I wouldn’t forgive him and shun him away. Month later, he died in a head-on-collision car accident (visiting his biological Mom all the way in Colorado). I was torn in pieces when I heard the news and wished I reconciled with him. Please don’t make the dumbest mistake as I did, reconcile with those that has hurt you before it’s too late.

During my college and post-college years, I was interested in learning more about WWII (more of the Pacific arena) due to my family’s history (grandfather got capture by the Japanese and survived as a cook and great-grandfather was presumably killed as he never returned home when scoping the vicinity for any Japanese solders). As I read more books of the horrific atrocities the Japanese did in the Philippines and elsewhere, my heart towards the Japanese grew with more hate :(.. Well, God seems to try to soften my heart by bringing Japanese students to the college I attended. Then He brought them to be my renters in the house I owned. My last renter caught me watching some WWII footage of Japan’s horrific treatment. I tried to turned it off, but he saw it and we ended up having a deep conversation. He ended up asking forgiveness for what his ancestors did. I told him no worries, but in my heart-I felt some more compassion for him and the Japanese people overall.

Lastly, this is between me and my Heavenly Father-I gave my life to Christ my freshmen year in college. I did it after hearing a testimony of this speaker at a local church in Morris. This grabbed my heart and got me off my seat to go to the front (alter) and asked God to forgive me all of my sins. That was just the beginning and still in the journey of my faith (still sinning, but trying to sin-less as I grow in my personal relationship with my “Heavenly Dad” :)..

Above are just summaries of some of my stories on forgiveness-repentance. I’ll be glad to share more, but would love to hear yours first. I would love to disclose and be open/transparent/honest with you with my personal challenges-struggles as “we” can help each other in this journey of forgiveness with the “limited uncertain” time we have on this earth…

Deep Thought: What do I have to “give up” when becoming-growing (as) a Christian?

A “friend” got “theological” with me this past weekend over the holidays. He asked, why this church doesn’t allow us to “practice” our old ways (e.g. shamanism, see-> Deuteronomy 18). I then thought about my former Catholic up-bringing. I didn’t think about it much when I was growing-up, but friends in college would question some of the “theological” practices (e.g. worship Mary, statues/idols in the sanctuary, priests are called “father, etc…). It’s not just “religious” stuff, but just “old” ways in our “sinful” lifestyle of the past (e.g. drunkeness or any other addictions that controlled/slaved you in bondage, etc…) that prevented one to a “personal relationship” with the Heavenly Father.

All That’s Inside -Jon Thurlow (Lyrics)

“Uploaded on Feb 19, 2011

(Let there be) no reservations, no walls
But just an open door in my heart for You

I want to give all that’s inside of my heart
I want to give all that’s inside of my heart to You

Everything else is fading away
Only love (only love) only love remains (only love remains)

It’s not the riches, it’s not the fame
It’s not the power, it’s not my name
Only love (only love) only love (only love) only love (only love)

So take the same love that’s inside Your heart
And put that same love deep inside of me

Everything else, everything else,
Everything else is fading (only love remains)”

Above was a song a friend from church played during our weekly prayer get-together (FOCUS), which really touched me about this topic that was discussed this past weekend.

When does a boy become a “real” man?

I just watched this “telecast” (“Stepping-Up National Men’s Simulcast/a>) via online with a groupit of 30+ guys at a local church in town (Morris Minnesota), which several churches got together yesterday early on a summer Saturday morning (8a-12p). I thought it was worth my time as we got equipped to become “better” men to fulfill God’s purpose or calling in each of our lives. What is “our” purpose?..

From the ashes of Sept. 11 arise the manly virtues. OPINION
October 12, 2001 By PEGGY NOONAN
“…I believe this quite literally. But then I am experiencing Sept. 11 not as a political event but as a spiritual event.

And, of course, a cultural one, which gets me to my topic.

It is not only that God is back, but that men are back. A certain style of manliness is once again being honored and celebrated in our country since Sept. 11. You might say it suddenly emerged from the rubble of the past quarter century, and emerged when a certain kind of man came forth to get our great country out of the fix it was in.

I am speaking of masculine men, men who push things and pull things and haul things and build things, men who charge up the stairs in a hundred pounds of gear and tell everyone else where to go to be safe. Men who are welders, who do construction, men who are cops and firemen. They are all of them, one way or another, the men who put the fire out, the men who are digging the rubble out, and the men who will build whatever takes its place.

Stories of healing? Ministry: Healing

After coming to a growing personal relationship with Jesus, I learned more of his love and healing. The words in the Bible came to life on healing more and more.

Personal Testimony

I remembered growing-up, I would always stare at this “mark” whenever I take my clothes off. It kind of bothered me. I didn’t like taking my shirt off in public (e.g.swimming) because I got tired of people asking me “what is that or what happened?”. I began to joke with a response as I got older by saying, “I got stabbed during a gang find growing-up in the cities”. They would respond with their eyes wide and mouth open with shock. I then would start laughing telling them the real truth after-he he! I began to accept this “mark” this as I got older and thank God for the success of this “Appendicities” surgery at age 3. God had a plan, which my mom repeatedly that I survived w/my name “Salvador” or “Savior” (in Spanish).

Growing-up as a little kid (still today), I would get cuts and bruises-calling it an owe! I got a band aid or some rubbing alcohol to help heal the wound. Well, those “owes” become more serious when you get older and it takes more than those overthecountertop medicines.

It was my freshmen year at UMM when I went skiing with some international students at Andes Tower Hills. I got injured from making a “stupid” mistake…more

I remembered watching all those movies of Jesus and admired when he healed all types of people. Well, I believe God could heal me and my faith grew after the doctor told me that I didn’t break anything after an x-ray…Praise God!

I can share countless stories of God’s healing because I called out to Him. I try to first call to Him before I seek actual physical medical help to show my trust in Him. Then I ask for wisdom on what to do, which He tells me at times to seek a physical doctor. Not only physical healing, but emotional healing of all sorts of issues in daily life.

I personally recommend of reading God’s word, which is better then over the counter/prescription drugs (too many side effects). Try it, you never know what may happen, but read it (some verses from Luke is reccomended as the author was a physician/doctor)in faith and expectations!

God healed my back through a dream. It is a complete miracle! I injured myself while strength training in beginning of January. I could barely get up off the floor w/o repositioning myself gingerly, was always flaring and locking my back making it hard to walk, squat, or do my jobs w/o pain, and hardly able to bend down (forget about picking anything up bent over, w/o compensation until a week ago ! I had even resulted to Ibprofen which I NEVER take. Overnight this past Sunday and ever since, I am able get out of bed w/o hesitation, to sit anyway I want w/o problem and do light dead lifts to build my lost strength and flexibility back up.

This journey was a wake up call to certain things in my life. I don’t know if I have the ability to really give the impact of this experience in typed words, but to some it up: do what gives you joy in the Lord. Ask him what that is. He will provide. He loves you beyond anything you can imagine.

If you want to have a dialogue about it PM me or contact me via cell. Thanks”

Testimony of the Power of Prayer of Mother and church group, joshua_24_15 1.14.17

joshua_24_15So I baked an amazing strawberry🍓 cheese cake🎂😋for my heart, my brother👫😙.On the 12th of Jan, two decades+few years back- God👑 blessed my Mum😙 and Dadda😙 with a beautiful baby boy👶😙.2 bad he didn’t get any of my cake🎂😏,since he was out😒with his mrs😙the whole day.So that took care of all my meals😉😋 He has the most beautifully #testimony .God👑 literally pulled him out of the shadow of
valley of death

When he was 3months old he had a lot of fever and cough.The #baby cried all the time.So Mum and Dadda took him to our family Dr who is my Mum’s brother in law.He asked my parents to a lot of test and they were so confused at why so many tests for fever and cough.The test results came and the pediatrician and other experts straight told them we will try a few things but the baby will not survive more than 15days. He had the worst blood culture,like now the hemoglobin is 14,in the next few mins it would drop down to 3.His lung had patch,his liver was failing, his pancreas weren’t functioning

My parents- their world fell apart. Soon the baby was put on heavy medication.Drs would pierce him tiny legs with syringes 3 times a day.To a point where the legs were swollen so much,that they started piercing his lil hands.After 3 days or so his body was full of knots.The drs said none of the medicines were working & he would die eventually of multiple organ failure+internal bleeding

Now my Mum is a woman of faith & prayer.She prayed let your will be done Father.If my child lives-we all will serve you as long as we live & if he doesn’t we will still serve you.She went to see our #church pastor’s home & on their wall was Isa 53:5,Ps 118:6.She was convinced it was for her baby,the ans to her constant pleading and prayers.She took my bro home, got him off every medicine & put him back on regular feed.Next she called her women’s prayer group(Mum runs a housegroup for the poor & the under privileged-raising money for widows & their kids).The #women in her group were the most simple ladies you’ll know like maids-very poor,uneducated yet very humble & deeply rooted in #God .Cont⤵
#Jesus #Christ #Yeshua #Yahweh #Hebrews #Jews #Relationship #sin #sinner #Bible #mothers
joshua_24_15All of them fasted and prayed and declared God has healed the baby.

15days were up. And the pediatrician and experts who where my uncle’s colleagues came to visit my parents to console them since they thought the baby is dead. But to their surprise the baby was not only alive but looked healthy and was so fair and not purplish blue(His skin was also affected because of the medication). They requested my parents to do the tests again because, him being alive was impossible and unbelievable. All the tests very perfect. Every organ was ok and the patch and knots had disappeared. Nothing was wrong with the baby plus he had gained 3 pounds. The reports looked like nothing was ever wrong.
So this is for all you Mum’s out there. Look to God. He loves you and your children. Do not trust the facts of the world, live by faith in Christ. There are two truths, 1- that the world shows you but there is another truth i.e- what the word of God says. He can change every unfortunate report but no one can his report. You are what the word of God says you are. He has the final say!

Christian Deathcore Testimony-Murder Trial, Suicide, self harm, HEALING in JESUS

“..As a side note, now that the trial is over, Graham Dwyer has been convicted and sentenced for murder, R.I.P. Elaine O’Hara. I am thankful i escaped being a victim as well. LIFE is a gift and we are never promised tomorrow. I am thankful for every day im alive and breathing! For a brief background, i went through a dark period where i felt that no one could ever love me and that i was a burden. I was EXTREMELY suicidal and very deep into self-harm and it was during this time period where I went online in search of someone to end my life. It was on a dark horror based website where i found Graham Dwyer and he offered to end my suffering. Over a period of months we went over all the details and i started preparing my suicide note and trying to make amends with those around me. I finally couldn’t stand the crippling depression any longer and cried out for God to save me, and He made His presence known and His LOVE gave me the strength to carry on. I stopped all communications with Graham and turned my life around. Almost 5 years later, a detective from the major crimes Unit showed up at my door step and over the period of many months, i gathered my information together and testified againts Graham via video link. They found extensive violent content horror movie clips on his laptop, (consensual) videos of him stabbing women and stories he had written that included graphic rape/murder themes (one he had written about me). This whole experience has been powerful and because i am still alive, i know my work is not yet done. And this life is NOT OVER yet for any of you who are struggling today!! I know how crippling depression can be and want you all to know how loved you are. PLEASE, I WANT TO ENCOURAGE ALL OF YOU to be the LIGHT this world needs. Please extend a hand to those in need and be there for a friend tonight who is contemplating ending their life. ..”

Pastor Paul Rapley – Jesus Heals

*see other testimonies

Kathryn Kuhlman healings and miracles
“..The world called me a fool for having given my entire life to One whom I’ve never seen. I know exactly what I’m going to say when I stand in His presence. When I look upon that wonderful face of Jesus, I’ll have just one thing to say: ‘I tried.’ I gave of myself the best I knew how. My redemption will have been perfected when I stand and see Him who made it all possible.
In a time that was suspicious of both women ministers and Pentecostals, Kathryn Kuhlman shook twentieth-century Christianity back to its roots. Believers of all persuasions—Catholic, Baptist, Methodist, Presbyterian, Episcopal, or whatever, it didn’t matter—flocked to her meetings to be healed or filled with the Holy Spirit as they had read about in the book of Acts. Though she called herself “an ordinary person,” the effects of her ministry were anything but ordinary. Kathryn was one of a handful of ministers after World War II who prophetically reintroduced the Holy Spirit and His gifts to the body of Christ on the earth in what has proven the greatest revival of all time: the Charismatic Renewal.
Kathryn Kuhlman was born on May 9, 1907, to Joseph and Emma Kuhlman. A childhood friend described Kathryn as having “large features, red hair, and freckles. . . . She wasn’t dainty or appealingly feminine in any sense of the word. She was taller than the rest of ‘our gang,’ gangly and boyish in build, and her long strides kept the rest of us puffing to keep up with her.”
One Sunday when Kathryn was fourteen, she attended church with her mother. As she stood singing, she began to shake all over and sob. A weight of conviction came over her, and she realized that she was a sinner in need of salvation and forgiveness. She slipped out from where she was standing, went to the corner of the front pew and sat weeping. At that moment Jesus lifted the weight from her shoulders and entered her heart.
In 1924 when Kathryn was about seventeen, she and her older sister Myrtle persuaded their parents that it was God’s will for Kathryn to travel with Myrtle and her husband Everett in their evangelistic tent ministry. Then in 1928, after a meeting in Boise, Idaho, Everett decided to go on to South Dakota, while the women stayed behind and continued to minister there. The offerings collected, however, were not enough to support them and Myrtle soon decided to rejoin her husband. After this happened, a local Boise pastor offered Kathryn a chance to preach at an old pool hall that had been converted into a mission and Kathryn’s ministry began…”
