The last few days have been very exciting, and, yet, also very heart-rending, as I am ministering to an ever- increasing number of people these days. I have had the awesome experience in the last few weeks …maybe months…of winning a couple of people to the LORD on our Womenwho Pray Wall. How awesome is that!I mean to be in the right place at the right time has been so fantastic…more than I could have ever hoped or thought…just like our LORD promises in His Word! Woo Hoo!!!!
Now, because of our ministry to the nations, I’ve had the opportunity to participate in the salvation of two Muslim…one in Africa…and one Egyptian. How amazing! How extravagant is our God! The Egyptian and I now pray together, and she’s returned to face book to stay in contact with Womenwho Pray (no space). We’re sisters today, and this woman ran from my words for a long time…it’s been since we began the face book ministry…she was a friend of womenwho pray very early on. There are other Muslim friends on face book that I’ve had the honor to love and stand in Jesus’ Name and let them know He loves them and how He’s sent me to them…by internet. Woo Hoo!!!
Also, one son in India, who when we first met on face book, more than a year ago, he said he had left his first love. His wife had converted to Islam, while working out of the country. He left his ministry, and after separating from his wife, her family brought her back to him…saying she was crazy…we prayed…and he now has asked prayer for restoration of his marriage to his wife. Today, he found me on chat because he had just heard an anointed song by Karen Wheaton that he posted on his wall. When he saw what I had posted about her being at Judy Jacobs’ Church, he had to let me know. Woo Hoo!!
I’ve prayed with several sons in other nations…they call me Mama or Mom…and they ask that I pray for their ministries as they serve the King of Kings. I have sons and daughters in all the continents with people…all except Antarctica. Some call me sister or sis, or aunt or auntie…or Miss Teddi. Woo Hoo!!!!
I have prayed for a daughter in the Philippines…one that her husband will support their children…and pay on their house…as he’s left to be with another…this dear daughter and I pray together most weeks…I love her dearly. Another Filipino woman, who was born a year before I was there with my husband and son, has prayed the prayer blanket with us by Skype, and she’s helping her neighbors that have had great loss during the recent typhoon. Woo Hoo!!!
We pray daily for the Egyptian Church that is under attack, and we pray for the persecuted Church everywhere…knowing one fled Pakistan for Bangkok…and another went to Sri Lanka. We’ve been praying God pour out His Spirit on our sons and daughters…and on the sons and daughters of the nations…that they will see visions and dream dreams…adding more fervent Word since we began this prayer…and this week a young man appeared on my face book wall…telling me that the Lord has just called he and his wife to go to tribes among the un-reached…in India where he lives…but among those never even hearing of Jesus…much idolization, he said. So amazing! Woo Hoo!!!
If you ever believe that God doesn’t hear our prayers when we align them with His Word…like calling for the out-pouring of His Spirit…and raising up those to save their nation. This man is the age of my youngest son, 32, and his wife is 8 months pregnant. He’s in the same state that we’re going to…280 km from the city, and he speaks Telugu and is going to those who also speak Telugu.
Does that ring a bell? What language have we translated this precious prayer blanket into…1st 500, then 1000, and now 2000… in Telugu. Sounds like a God thing to me!!! Woooo Hooo!!!
Now, I want us to take a minute before I share my reason for writing today.
Let’s just read together this portion of 1 Corinthians 13. Since childhood, I’ve referred to this chapter as the Love Chapter of the Bible. 1 Corinthians 13 Amplified Bible (AMP) 4 Love endures long and is patient and kind; love never is envious nor boils over with jealousy, is not boastful or vainglorious, does not display itself haughtily. 5 It is not conceited (arrogant and inflated with pride); it is not rude (unmannerly) and does not act unbecomingly. Love (God’s love in us) does not insist on its own rights orits own way, for it is not self-seeking; it is not touchy or fretful or resentful; it takes no account of the evil done to it [it pays no attention to a suffered wrong]. 6 It does not rejoice at injustice and unrighteousness, but rejoices when right and truth prevail. 7 Love bears up under anything and everything that comes, is ever ready to believe the best of every person, its hopes are fadeless under all circumstances, and it endures everything [without weakening]. 8 Love never fails [never fades out or becomes obsolete or comes to an end].
Now, this story that I share is one that is very hard to write about. I was working with the ministry things, checking all that have contacted me, and posting the day’s prayer blanket on the face book wall. A young man popped up to chat that I had not talked to before. We have almost 2000 friends on face book, and I haven’t talked to many of them. I don’t even know how many of these friends every come to the Womenwho Pray wall.
Anyway, there he was saying hello and that he had a problem and needed prayer. I’ve had a few of the men ask me to pray for their marriages or ask me to pray that they will keep their minds off women. I knew from their seriousness and appreciation of prayer, that they were trying to live right but were bound in something.
I don’t ask for any more details than they give me with the request, except, I ask if they know my Jesus! Without Him there is no over-coming! He is the one who in us over-comes the enemy. This very young man is not a Hindu or Buddhist or Muslim or any other religion that worships gods and idols, or atheist or agnostic. This man is a Christian. I mean he has been born again, and he has been active in his church.
This young man was diagnosed with the HIV virus. He said he never thought this could happen to him, had not told anyone but one family member and me, and he was asking for me to pray for his healing. He had rededicated his life, and he wanted God to show the doctors this miracle, and he would go wherever God wanted him to go and do whatever God wanted him to do.
After I let him know that I knew that HIV is transmitted sexually, with dirty syringes, or from a blood transfusion from tainted blood…or…well, in other words, his blood had to touch another’s blood with the virus. He said he had had sex with several ladies…not sure the number. I shared with him the God that I serve.
Yes, the LORD forgives and He gives 2nd chances…3rd…4th…and like us, at least 70 x 7…actually limitless times. But, I knew this God that created the earth, and He was not about to play a game here. He would not heal this young man and let him go back to this game he has been playing…his playing cwith fire!
My God would not let him continue to seduce or be seduced by young women. Per his testimony, the young women seem to be in the Church also. When I was commissioned a few weeks ago, to handle the Word seriously, and only speak Truth to the bound, the broken-hearted, the sinner…I mean to rightly divide the Word of Truth.
I told him that HIV was certainly not under the blessing…that Deuteronomy 28 and 29 clearly explains that if you do not obey God…whether you think the Bible is speaking to you or not…you are under the curse! All those things happening to you are because you have not chosen life, but you’ve chosen death! It’s not important to God if we are smart, or pretty, or loud, or tall….I mean, we all have to face God!
It doesn’t matter if God’s Word is logical to us! My God is in control of the earth that He created and all of us…His creation. I used to wonder why lightening didn’t strike those shaking their fist at God…I actually would move over…when I heard the blasphemies…still flinch to this day.
Funny, at this age and after serving this wonderful God of the universe so long, I realize that He doesn’t hear all the swearing and ranting. He only hears us when we pray according to His Word. He only hears us through the blood of Jesus, and He not only is who He says He is, but He does what He says He will do!
I pray His Word and it won’t return void!!…but It will accomplish what He pleases…and the purpose that He set it forth to do! If I don’t pray His Word…someone will! He is so good to let me pray! Woo Hoo!
Well, today, I was face to face to this young man via chat on face book again…and I asked had he told the women? We had mentioned it 2 days ago, but not like today. I let him know that he must…whether he had lost their phone numbers or not…he must find them! I told him that he had to stop this cycle…this multiplication of HIV which causes AIDS.
Now, I know all the mess today of what is politically correct and all…but HIV is the virus that causes AIDS. It may take 10 years before this virus bears fruit…and except God…I mean unless He divinely intervenes, there is no cure! Is it nice? No! I’ve known one of my favorite people in high school to die of that disease. I was so sad! I loved him and his sister and his brother.
Just ask Africans about AIDS! I shared with this young man…who said I don’t have AIDS…no you have HIV which will be AIDS without God’s intervention. Treatment has not saved people with AIDS.
Now, I would like not to be talking about this, but you know this man needed my Truth from the Word of God. I told him he had asked me to pray, and it was his responsibility to notify the women…that I knew he didn’t know who infected him…but he needed to tell every person he had had sex with.
I have to stop here, readers…friends…family…family of God! I need you to listen to this woman with white hair. God is not fooled with all the shenanigans in the Church of the ONE TRUE GOD!!! American Church kids all over America…are sleeping around…yes, I said that. God’s Word calls that fornication!
Worse than that are the adults…over 30…even in their 50’s or 60’s? God’s Word does not change! If you are in fornication, and you think your confession of Faith in Jesus is going to keep you from the curse that this fornication brings you…you need to think again! God is not mocked!! He will not know you when you stand in the judgment…and He divides the sheep and goats!!!
You can’t commit adultery or fornication and die without repenting and turning from that sin…not and enter Heaven!!! Where did we get that idea? Our God is not sleeping. His eyes are not closed.
Now, God in His mercy, will allow you to suffer herendous pain and suffering where you cry out…repent…and come back! I mean death bed confessions are not only for the unsaved!
We, intercessors, are covering our families and our tents…all our family, friends, and all the tent that God has given us to pray for! So, it’s true, that the LORD is moving Heaven and earth in our behalf to bring our tent in.
Hear me please!!! We can pray…but we can’t change God’s Word! If you are participating in homosexuality…male or female…or heterosexual activity with people you are not married to…beware! For if you are God’s child…you are like a dog returning to his vomit…if you were here before… earlier in your life…and now you have returned to this sin-life. You have tasted the goodness of God…and you have returned to the sin of your younger life. God is not fooled! He sees you, and He is calling you! Repent means to turn from and not to return.It’s God’s will that all men repent and come to the knowledge of God!
If I’m talking to you…repent…God will meet you where He allowed your sin to take you into captivity…He will welcome you with open arms like the prodigal! We the Church…will welcome you in…but we the Church will admonish you that you better stay away from this sin and all that lures you into this sin.
Our God has called you!!…but many are called…and few are chosen! We all have to work out our salvation!!! I leave the Word with you…I know many reading this have a 2nd chance at this moment to turn from their wicked ways!! Come…and receive Gods precious GRACE!!!! Gloooorrrrrryyyy!!!!!
In Jesus’ Name, Amen and Amen
