His Name is Wonderful

Isa 9:6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

Isaiah was led by the Lord to Glorify his Name AMEN! We must understand that we are compelled by our Lord to speak of our Testimony I was led to Church and the Lord's word was Preached and it struck me like a two edged sword that went deep into me to the marrow of my bones and the depth of my heart. I was shaken asunder within it was all the evil one could do was to try and calm me down and slow everything down hold on to the pew and get out. I didn't want to be there anyway right I only needed to get home and relax and get back to my old life that I was happy with I did not need anyone. But you see he was after me I could not stop the conviction of my heart. I went to work the next day said I just needed to get busy and forget about this no way I was like a wreak I was a miserable man all I could do was get home as fast as I could and call that Preacher Man and find out what I could do about this misery I was in. He came over and lead on the Roman Road to Salvation!!! I was a new man you know I smoked two packs of cigarettes a day before that day after that day 0 I was a new creature in Christ His Name is Wonderful The Joy of My Salvation it was like leaving earth but still being here something that is so hard to explain I totally and with all my self gave my self unto him he raised me to a level of Spirituality like is not understandable to many the Bible came to Life I could read and see things in it is WONDERFUL! AMEN

Angina and the Fears of Death

Peace be with you all who suffer with this type of Illness who would desire to live each day not sure if you will see the morrow. Praise be the Lord God of Heaven and Earth for his Mercy and Long suffering. Blessed be his name for he is worthy of all the Praise we can muster from within these bodies of flesh and bones. Be strong and keep your Faith in Him to be with you always. We cannot understand sometimes and that is a Prayer for most of us why me Lord could this be because I did not live my life as I should. But we must be honest with ourselves that he gave us charge that our body is a Temple and we are in care of our own bodies. If we don't eat right who can we blame. May God be with you I pray I know this is a scary thing to live with so I do not take anyone lightly on the way they feel. Now I do understand that this type of Heart Disease that is passed down from our family so sometimes we might not totally be responsible God Bless you all Amen !

Do we Know his Grace is Sufficient for us? Heart Problems!

Now I want to start on myself because this could pertain to allot of us I felt this speaking to me only. I myself came though a time of my life where things were in his control that saved my life here on this earth. I want anyone who suffers with any forms of Heart Disease to listen. I was living outside of his Love and Guidance. I was taken to the Hospital with a slight pressure on my chest like my hand was on my chest when you do the pledge of elegance to the flag. They kept me over night testing me and wanted to hold me until the next Monday morning to do a Heart Catheration so all I could do was say ok. They started and everything was where I could here everyone in the room. The Doctor who was doing the procedure was on a speaker system. They went in the vain in my leg and inserted the Cathe ration to look at the arteries around my Heart. He found a few arteries that we partly blocked but on main artery was 90% blocked. So he ask the tech's for a certain number of stint which is what they use to open the artery. They did not have that one so they used one close to the same size.

When they inserted this stint and started to open the artery the Wall started to tear and kept tearing. I heard them say we have a problem people were all around me trying to get a I.V. started to put me on out. When they woke me up it was outside of the room and said it would be a good idea to bring my children in to see them before I went into Emergency Open Heart Surgery. I told them no to tell my children there father will be fine do not tell them that there is a one hour window for me to be operated on. You see at this time they were telling me they had one hour to get me into surgery or I was gone. Now what they did not tell me was they were still trying to put a Surgery team together. One hour and no surgery team now I was kind of in a corner. I do not remember anything until I woke up one night in the Critical Care Unit on Life Support. I was there for three days. When I finally had a chance to speak to a Doctor who was my Surgeon when I was taken off life support. He explained to me that they could not do everything they wanted and that because I was out for so long the main artery was to late to keep my heart from sustaining damage.

Now we get to the word of Angina that Heart patents go though in our everyday lives you see this helps me to be humble so more can use this to help them in there relationships with there Lord and Savior. I will write more on the subject of angina you see my Surgeon was the only one I listen to afterwards. I was given nitro tablets to take and I did take them for a while. But when you realize that this is how it is going to be you learn to live with it. The Lord Jesus Christ has helped me all the way I just did not keep him lifted up then as I do now. He is worthy of all Praise.

If you are a Heart Patient you know what its like to be scared that you are going to die daily even hourly or even by the minute. One thing you know is it gets worse and better pressure does not help so trusting in Jesus can help Tremendously for anyone whao suffers from Heart Problems and Angina That can make you feel quite helpless that no one will listen to you that no one seems to care. Life is Amazing you hold on just hoping that you will make it untill Jesus Comes for his Church! I tell you now if you do not know him what in the world are you waiting on you need him now! Amen!!!

If He Loves You, You will be Chastened

Hbr 12:5 And ye have forgotten the exhortation which speaketh unto you as unto children, My son, despise not thou the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when thou art rebuked of him:
Hbr 12:6 For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth.
Hbr 12:7 If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not?
Hbr 12:8 But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons.
Hbr 12:9 Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh which corrected [us], and we gave [them] reverence: shall we not much rather be in subjection unto the Father of spirits, and live?
Hbr 12:10 For they verily for a few days chastened [us] after their own pleasure; but he for [our] profit, that [we] might be partakers of his holiness. Hbr 12:11 Now no chastening for the present seemeth to be joyous, but grievous: nevertheless afterward it yieldeth the peaceable fruit of righteousness unto them which are exercised thereby.
Hbr 12:12 Wherefore lift up the hands which hang down, and the feeble knees;
Hbr 12:13 And make straight paths for your feet, lest that which is lame be turned out of the way; but let it rather be healed.
Hbr 12:14 Follow peace with all [men], and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord:
Hbr 12:15 Looking diligently lest any man fail of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble [you], and thereby many be defiled;

His Grace is Sufficient for All

I want to start out with these scriptures before I write more about my self and others who could be under something similar but not even close we to the same situations as Paul.

2Cr 12:4 How that he was caught up into paradise, and heard unspeakable words, which it is not lawful for a man to utter.
2Cr 12:5 Of such an one will I glory: yet of myself I will not glory, but in mine infirmities.
2Cr 12:6 For though I would desire to glory, I shall not be a fool; for I will say the truth: but [now] I forbear, lest any man should think of me above that which he seeth me [to be], or [that] he heareth of me.
2Cr 12:7 And lest I should be exalted above measure through the abundance of the revelations, there was given to me a thorn in the flesh, the messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I should be exalted above measure.
2Cr 12:8 For this thing I besought the Lord thrice, that it might depart from me.
2Cr 12:9 And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
2Cr 12:10 Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.

Now for those who might find this blog who does not know about Paul he was a Apostle of Christ and was having trouble with what he is calling thorns of the flesh. Now we could say a number of things that he could have been going through but we are not sure. So all we need to understand is they were bad enough that he called upon the Lord three times for relief from these infirmities that were causing him possible pain and thought that the Lord would hear him and free him from these infirmities. But as the Scripture says the Lord told Paul My Grace is Sufficient for him and possibly us. I am not saying the Lord does not still to this day Provide Miracles for his Children.
