Finding Your Power in God’s Lavish Love.


(coloniera/rgbstock.com)

Lavish is an incredibly rich word. It means, “over the top, more than you could imagine”—like when we read, “How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God” (1 John 3:1, NIV).

No matter how great we are, we do not naturally deserve to be called sons and daughters of God. Even if we achieved academic honors in school, the highest promotions in our jobs and every other qualification this world could possibly offer, we would never merit such a gift. Only His free and lavish love gives us the most beautiful title of all—not doctor, not lawyer, not apostle, but son or daughter.

We are the family God went out and found. He was so determined to call us sons and daughters that He suffered on a cross and died. Jesus and His Father are one. Whatever Jesus does, the Father does. They act together, and the cross expresses the unity of their love for us. Jesus died so we could be brothers and sisters to one another. Before that we could not be one family.

I have been beaten up, shot at and lied about. People have even tried to strangle me. I am not afraid. To this day I can walk boldly into gangs of armed thugs and tell them to stop in the name of Jesus. I expect them to drop their knives. Generally they turn surprisingly nice. Sometimes they look at me and apologize.

Where did this confidence come from? It came from knowing the Father loves me. Because I truly know that I am loved, I am not afraid.

God wants your ministry to flow from the realization that you are a beloved child of God. In that place you don’t worry too much about how people see you. You don’t worry too much about whether they are nice or mean. You don’t even worry about whether they love you or hate you. You don’t worry because you’re simply going to love them and love Him. This comes from knowing who He is and what He thinks of you. This is what it means to grasp you are a child of God.

But what if we make messy mistakes? What if it turns out we are still flawed people who can be difficult to get along with? Will He keep on loving us then?

We have taken in thousands of children to live with us over the years; one of them was a particular rascal. If he could find something wrong to do, he would do it. I asked God what to do about this one. God told me to love him. I sensed the Lord saying He wanted me to give him some time and pray every day for him. So that is what I and the other caretakers did. For a long time we could see no progress. Despite everything this boy was always very charismatic, and after a while he managed to move to the United Kingdom.

Recently, when I was speaking in the U.K., I saw this spiritual son again. At once I was startled to see how powerfully the presence of God was resting on him. When he came up to me he started shaking and weeping in my arms. In broken English he said, “Thank you, Mama. For not stop loving me.”

Our joy in this son was not so much in seeing him graduate from school, though we were very happy when he did. Our joy was seeing him filled with the presence of God. Our joy was seeing him come home to the Father’s house and step into the spirit of adoption.

That boy—now a man—knows who he is. He is a son. He knows better than most that God loves him no matter how many times he might have lied, stolen, beaten up innocents or committed adultery. He is loved because of the incredible grace of God that comes down to call each of us sons and daughters. None of us deserve it. We simply have it.

Your heavenly Father loves you the same way. He wants you, no matter what you do or how you fail. This is the love He spoke over us when He sent His Son. It is what Jesus poured out of the cross. It is the thing the church must demonstrate to the world. Love so lavish can never die.

Because of this love, we have become children of God. Even if we do not yet believe it, this is what we truly are (1 John 3:1).  We have had children who, for the longest time, would not believe they are truly loved. This particular son had been with us for 14 years before he actually got it. That is a lot of waiting and a lot of pain. If the Holy Spirit ever touches people in such a way that they realize they are sons or daughters instantly, we ought to celebrate it as a mighty miracle—because sometimes it takes 14 years.

You are a son or a daughter right now—today. Your real identity is in this truth. It doesn’t matter what people do or do not call you. It doesn’t matter where you do or do not sit. You are a son. You are a daughter. There is no more precious position to which you might ever aspire.

To be a son or daughter of God also means you are royalty. This is the greatest of privileges, but it is also an awesome responsibility. If you are truly thankful to God and want to please Him with all your heart, you must do more than just recognize your own authority. You must use it. He asks you to give love as freely as you have received it—not just to those who deserve it but also to everyone He puts in front of you.

PRAYER POWER FOR THE WEEK OF 02/03/2014 

This week ask the Lord to give you more revelation of His lavish love. Embrace it and respond in kind as John wrote, “We love Him because He first loved us.” Because of that love surrender your will to His and tell Him that you wholly trust Him and will show your love by your obedience. Ask Him for the grace to carry His love to the unlovely, those who have hurt and betrayed you, and those with whom you disagree.  Continue to pray for our nation and its leaders, Israel, our military, their families and the upcoming generation. Thank God for ordering your steps and ask Him for more opportunities to expand His kingdom. John 1:31; 1 John 4:19 

Shocking Story Of Demon Possession Confirmed By Indiana Law Enforcement.


“And cried with a loud voice, and said, What have I to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of the most high God? I adjure thee by God, that thou torment me not.” Mark 5:7

The bible says that in the last days, evil will increase in the world. We are now seeing more and more stories like this one, stories that are being confirmed by both law enforcement and the medical field. Protect yourself with this.

Daily Mail UK: A woman whose horrific experience living in an Indiana home that she and even city police are convinced was a haunted ‘portal to hell’ has spoken out on her paranormal trauma and what it was like to be a family possessed.

Latoya Ammons says she has seen her own daughter levitate off a bed, her son walk up a wall so effortlessly that even a psychiatrist was at a loss and was herself the victim of demonic possession in what appears to be an average home in the Gary community near where Michael Jackson grew up.

story-of-demon-possession-confirmed-by-gary-indiana-police-chief

What is it? A close-up of the image shows the cloudy white figure in the window of the home.

‘Me and my mother and my children, we almost lost our lives,’ said Ammons, whose undeniably terrifying experience left her chilled to her core and now has an entire nation captivated by her spectral tale.

Ammons sat with Inside Edition for a deeply earnest interview in which she makes abundantly clear that her ordeal was no Casper the ghost made real.

‘This was obviously demons,’ she said. ‘Not just random spirits. There is a difference.’

Ammons’ unwavering eyes speak volumes about how truly real the haunting became for the family.

‘I know it was infested with demons. I know that for a fact,’ she said. ‘I spoke to a good friend of mine, he was clairvoyant. He’s in New York. He explained to me what was going on in the house.’

And what was going on was like something out of Polturegeist or The Exorcist. Only those terrible things were truly happening to Ammons and her family.

And Ammons’ clairvoyant friend correctly foretold that things would only get worse.

‘He told me the house was infested with demons and to get my children out of the house,’ she said. ‘And if I knew what I was up against, I would run and drop everything.’

A particularly scary bout with the demons had the family rushing to the emergency room as Ammons 9-year-old son was in the grips of possession and Ammons has revealed that even physicians were terrified.

When the family got to the hospital, her son ‘walked up the wall and did a backwards flip and threw her into the wall and started headbutting her and they had to grab him and hold him

‘The doctor from the psych ward said, “that’s not real, that’s not human. No human can do what that little boy just did.”‘

MailOnline’s exclusive footage taken inside the home is shaky as the camera pans to and fro moving from room to room – each in a state of disarray, left in haste – before descending into the basement.

The cellar is lit by naked bulbs. With bare walls and concrete floor it looks cold even on film and is all but abandoned, except for a small table covered in a cloth.

An open Bible and burned out vestige candle sit on it. Salt is scattered on the concrete floor – a desperate ritualistic attempt to rid this place of evil.

Seen here for the first time, this is video footage from the Gary, Indiana police investigation into a case that is, without question, the most bizarre and disturbing in their history: the possession and exorcism of Latoya Ammons.

Throughout the hour-long film officers hear testimony of children picked up and flung against walls and furniture; of adults being ‘choked to death’ by some supernatural force; of a demonic form appearing in different shapes – the shadow of a man, a black looming monster; an apparition of a withered old lady with red eyes and hood; of a house that bled clear, odorless oil and of the household’s three children convulsing and chanting Satanic verses.

In a chilling aside, in a separate audio recording made by one of the officers as he took pictures while his colleague filmed – audible here exclusively at MailOnline – the two officers’ speech is cut across by a whispered, but clear, ‘Hey.’ Neither said or heard it at the time.

Both are now convinced it is a demonic rasp, issuing a welcome or a challenge as they stood unwittingly on the lip of a ‘portal to hell.’ source – Daily Mail UK.

Standing At The Judgment Seat Of Christ.


“For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad. Knowing therefore the terror of the Lord, we persuade men;” 2 Corinthians 5:10,11a

Standing at the Judgment Seat of Christ

Some people hear the term “Judgment Seat” and automatically associate this with a judgment on sin. That is not what the bible is talking about here. The Judgment Seat of Christ is a public judgment in Heaven of the works that you did while on earth in the name of Jesus.

the-judgment-seat-of-christ

CLICK HERE TO READ THE FULL ARTICLE ON THE JUDGEMENT SEAT OF CHRIST

It is not a judgment on sin because sin was already dealt with at the cross. If you are saved then all your sins have already been wiped away and forgotten about. The Judgment Seat is a fire into which your earthly works for the Lord will be cast into. The unsaved of the world will appear at the Great White Throne Judgment, mentioned in Revelation 20 -

“And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.” Revelation 20:11,1

Wood, hay and stubble

If some of the works you did in His name where really for your benefit, then they are placed into the “wood, hay and stubble” category. If you here on earth throw wood, hay and stubble – all combustible materials – into a fire, what happens? They burn up and are never seen again. There are people who enter into the ministry because it can be financially lucrative. We have all seen televangelists who drive Rolls Royces, live in mansions and ‘fare sumptuously’ on the revenues that their great religious empires provide for them. One would have to imagine that most of the works associated with this type of “christianity’ would fall into the wood, hay and stubble category. This is not to say that these people are not saved, only they and God know that. But works done in Jesus name that really served to enrich you will not make it through the fire of the Jusgment Seat.

Gold, silver and precious stones

Evangelist Henry Varley once said, in the hearing of the great man of God D.L. Moody, that “the world has yet to see what God will do with, and for, and through, and in, and by, the man who is fully consecrated to Him.” After meditating on what he had heard, Dwight Moody resolved within himself that “he would be that man’. History records in what a mighty way that Moody was used of God.

And so it shall be for anyone – young, old, man, woman, child – who truly decides to serve the Lord the best they can with the gifts that God has given them. Their works for the Lord will be counted at the Judgment Seat as “gold, silver and precious stones’ that when cast into the fire, will only come out the other side shinier and more precious than when they went in. Everyone from Moody, Sunday, the apostle Paul, all the way down to the little child who hands someone a tract because they want to see them know Jesus and get saved will all have rewards at the Judgment Seat of Christ.

These rewards are given us as crowns, and there are 5 crowns the bible mentions: the Crown of Life, the Crown of Glory, the Crown of Rejoicing, the Crown of Righteousness, and the Crown Incorruptible. The bible says that when we receive these crowns that we will then thrown them at the feet of He who is worthy -

“The four and twenty elders fall down before him that sat on the throne, and worship him that liveth for ever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying, Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.” Revelation 4:10,11

What reward will you have at the Judgment Seat of Christ?

No matter how big your problems seem to you right now, and I am sure that there are many reading this who have pressing issues and lots of worry, let us assure you that one day the things and cares of this life will all be gone. In an instant. And you will find yourself standing before the One who redeemed you, Jesus Christ.

Only ONE life, twill SOON be past…and ONLY what’s done for CHRIST will last.

“Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 3:13,14

There is still time to get something done for Jesus, still time to add gold, silver and precious stones to your account. Get your eyes off of the temporary and on to the eternal weight of glory. Have you been saved, have you been redeemed? Then take the gifts and talents that the Lord has given you for His glory, and use them now while time remains.

The race is almost over, and the time for reckoning will begin soon. Do something for Jesus.

Nancy Pelosi Unable To Answer Even The Simplest Questions On Obamacare Failure.


If you needed any further proof of the lunacy and insanity that runs our federal government, we invite you to watch this video all the way through. Watch as Nancy Pelosi seems completely unstable and about to come apart at any moment as she falls apart under the “intense pressure” of easy, softball questions from Far-Left Liberal and Obamacare supporter Jon Stewart.

The Blaze: House Minority Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi said Thursday she has no idea why the Obamacare website isn’t working and that it’s not her “responsibility.”

Stewart, who has made no secret of his liberal leanings, didn’t cut Pelosi any slack as he repeatedly pushed her for answers to a problem that has dogged President Obama and his allies for months.

“Why is it so hard to get a company to execute that competently?” Stewart said.

“I don’t know,” Pelosi said, prompting peals of laughter from Stewart’s audience.

Stewart was incredulous

“Oh, well, let me get the House minority leader here, I can ask her. Hold on — what do you mean you don’t know? How do you not know?” Stewart asked.

“That’s not my responsibility,” Pelosi said. “But I will say this, we worked very hard to honor our responsibility to pass the bill that honors the vowels of our founders: life, a healthier life, liberty to pursue your happiness.”

She added that the health care law’s rollout has been “shameful,” but maintained that the policy was good.

Pelosi was a fierce supporter of the Affordable Care Act during her tenure as House speaker, famously telling reporters once that Congress would have to “pass the bill to find out what’s in it.”

Stewart also asked Pelosi for her take on the trend of Hill staffers leaving to work for lobbying firms, creating an environment that practically invites “quid pro quo” legislation.

Pelosi tried to say the issue is more common with the executive branch, but Stewart corrected her by pointing out that former members of her staff have indeed gone on to work for lobbying firms and government contractor groups.

“But folks in your office have gone on to work for Boeing and many other contractors,” Stewart said.

“I don’t know that,” Pelosi said.

“I do,” Stewart shot back, again to peals of laughter.

“Well who? Well who? Well who?” Pelosi responded. “I don’t know anyone, I don’t know.”

Approximately 28 current and former Pelosi staffers have gone through the so-called “revolving door” between Congress and lobbying firms, according to Open Secrets. source – The Blaze.

Pat Buchanan: Immigration Reform Would Finish Boehner as Speaker.


House Speaker John Boehner could get immigration reform through the House by splitting the Republican vote, but he’ll lose his speakership if he does, conservative commentator Pat Buchanan says.

Buchanan also told radio talk show host Laura Ingraham on Wednesday that he predicts a “Balkan war” in the Republican Party if immigration reform pushes through, because President Barack Obama will have driven a “wedge right through the Republican Party.”

Urgent: Do You Approve Or Disapprove of President Obama’s Job Performance? Vote Now in Urgent Poll 

Boehner is expected to unveil a brief outline of immigration principles at a three-day Republican leadership retreat in Cambridge, Md., this week, including plans to strengthen border security and create new visas for foreign workers, and to offer a path to legalization — though not necessarily citizenship — for the nation’s 11 million to 12 million undocumented immigrants.

Buchanan said he does not doubt that Boehner could push immigration reform through by attracting both Republicans and Democrats to vote for the measure, reports Breitbart, but the speaker will face huge political payback for the effort.

“There’s no doubt that if they do that, and you know they can probably bring along enough Republicans – get them lined up with all the Democrats and do that,” Buchanan said. “But if they do that, it’s the end of his speakership, I think at the end of this year. And John Boehner will have a nice job at a trade association.”

Immigration reform will be Boehner’s “last hurrah,” Buchanan predicted, saying Boehner is under huge pressures from many sides to pass an immigration reform measure.

The Chamber of Commerce and big business want immigration reform, Buchanan said, so their businesses can keep hiring immigrants. Further, he said, Boehner is also being pulled by moderates in the Republican Party who want to attract minority votes during this election year.

“If Boehner has signed onto this, even behind closed doors, he’s going to have to come out in the open and Barack Obama will have driven effectively a wedge right through the Republican Party,” said Buchanan.

“You will have a war inside the Republican Party, a Balkan war, this year, which will knock it off its present game, which is to lay out the problems with Obamacare and to show the American people that liberalism is a failure,” he said.

GOP Lining Up Against Boehner Immigration Plan.


Image: GOP Lining Up Against Boehner Immigration Plan

By Lisa Barron

The GOP House leadership has yet to unveil its new framework for immigration reform, but conservatives are already gearing up for a challenge.

House Speaker John Boehner is expected to release a plan to fellow Republicans at a three-day Chesapeake Bay retreat starting Wednesday that would give millions of  immigrants already in the country illegally a path to legal status; it would also offer a path to citizenship for immigrants brought to the United States illegally as children.

That has some of the party’s conservative strategists pushing back publicly.

“It’s one of the few things that could actually disrupt what looks like a strong Republican year,” William Kristol, editor of The Weekly Standard, told The New York Times, calling the push “a recipe for disaster.”

National Review editorial on Monday  titled “Don’t Do It,” also argued against reform at this stage.

“The basic tactical reason not to act now is that the last thing the party needs is a brutal intramural fight when it has been dealt a winning hand on Obamacare,” the editors wrote.
“The other prudential reason not to act is that President Obama obviously can’t be trusted. Any immigration deal would have to trade enhanced enforcement for an amnesty. Since the president refuses to enforce key provisions of his own healthcare law, let alone provisions of immigration law he finds uncongenial, he obviously can’t be relied on to follow up on his end of any bargain,” they added.

Some legislators also are staunchly opposed to the plan. Republican Rep. Steve King of Iowa believes that undocumented immigrants who are allowed to become citizens will eventually vote for Democrats, according to The Los Angeles Times.

“It’s political suicide for Republicans to do this,” he told the newspaper.

Meanwhile, President Barack Obama is expected to make his case for an overhaul of immigration policy in his State of the Union address Tuesday night.

“There are important economic consequences for passing immigration reform, from expanding economic opportunity to creating jobs, to reducing the deficit,” a senior administration official told The Los Angeles Times Monday, adding, “There are a whole lot of good reasons for the Congress to take action on this.”

Obama Raising Minimum Wage for Federal Contractors by Executive Order.


President Barack Obama will announce on Tuesday he is issuing an executive order to raise the minimum wage to $10.10 an hour for federal contract workers with new contracts, the White House said.

In his State of the Union address, Obama will also call on Congress to pass a bill that would increase the federal minimum wage for all workers to $10.10 an hour from $7.25 and index that to inflation going forward.

The executive order for new contracts or existing contracts in which terms are being changed would take effect at the beginning of next year. Issuing the order allows Obama to bypass Congress in a limited way, with Republicans opposed to a broad increase in the minimum wage.

Janitors and construction workers would be among the beneficiaries of the order, the White House said.

“A higher minimum wage for federal contract workers will provide good value for the federal government and hence good value for the taxpayer,” the White House said in a statement.

“Boosting wages will lower turnover and increase morale, and will lead to higher productivity overall. Raising wages for those at the bottom will improve the quality and efficiency of services provided to the government.”

Reducing inequalities between the rich and the poor and helping boost the middle class are expected to be key themes of Obama’s address on Tuesday night.

White House: Young Are Flocking to Obamacare.


The White House insisted Monday that there had been a “surge” in young Obamacare enrollees, disputing doubts from a Democratic Virginia lawmaker that there wouldn’t be enough millennials signing up “to make this bill work,” reports said.

Retiring Rep. Jim Moran told radio station WAMU in an interview Friday that people under 35 “are less likely to sign up.”

Urgent: Is Obamacare Hurting Your Wallet? Vote in Poll 

“I think they feel more independent,” he said. “I think they feel a little more invulnerable than prior generations. But I don’t think we’re going to get enough young people signing up to make this bill work as it was intended to financially.”

“I just don’t know how we’re going to do it, frankly,” he added. “If we had a solution, I’d be telling the president right now.”

White House spokesman Jay Carney, though acknowledging Obamacare’s “shaky rollout,” brushed aside Moran’s concern, The Hill reported.

Carney asserted instead that there had been “a significant surge in the percentage of young Americans under 35 enrolling.”

“Those numbers are consistent with what we saw in Massachusetts,” Carney said.

“And if you ask the Republicans in Massachusetts who supported and, in one case signed, into law the health insurance reform, which is the closest thing to a model for the president’s Affordable Care Act, they would say that that worked and that there the percentage of young people who enrolled was adequate.”

Harvard economics professor David Cutler, one of the ACA’s architects, has warned that if too few young people are covered, Obamacare won’t be able to offset the costs of insuring older and sicker Americans, sending the new law into a “death spiral.”

The Hill reported that the Department of Health and Human Services said 30 percent of Obamacare enrollees were 34 and under, and announced last week that 3 million individuals had purchased coverage.

The administration originally estimated 7 million consumers would enroll, with 39 percent ages 18-34, The Hill reported.

In Virginia, WAMU reported, more than 40,000 Virginians signed up for Obamacare; only 27 percent of those were young adults.

Bolton: Hillary’s Benghazi ‘Regret’ Remark Just Canned Politics.


Former U.S. Ambassador John Bolton says Hillary Clinton’s remark that the Benghazi attack was her “biggest regret” as secretary of state was a “focus-group-tested, polled response.”

“The fact here is that those deaths could have been avoided,” Bolton told “The Steve Malzberg Show” on Newsmax TV.

“The Obama-Clinton administration was . . . unwilling or unable to acknowledge that, in fact, the terrorist threat had grown under Obama worldwide.

“Their campaign claim [was] that al-Qaida was on the run, General Motors is alive, and Osama bin Laden’s dead. The fact is – and Benghazi demonstrates it – the terrorist threat was real and was growing,” Bolton said Monday.

Story continues below video.

Bolton said Obama and Clinton’s unwillingness to acknowledge what was actually happening in Libya “for well over a year” before the Sept. 11, 2012, attack led to that tragedy.

He said Clinton’s “biggest regret” comment was “a tried-and-true, focus-group-tested, polled response . . . They may get away with it, but they shouldn’t.”

Bolton, a senior fellow at the American Enterprise Institute and former U.N. ambassador, said he is alarmed by Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson’s remark that it is a matter of national security to give people who are in the country illegally a pathway to citizenship.

“There is no way that you can say that anybody has earned the right to be a citizen unless they have followed our laws and lived here the prescribed amount of time, done what they’re supposed to do,” he said.

“If you just happened to get here and that earns you the right to be a citizen, then we don’t have citizenship anymore,” Bolton said.

“We might as well just forget about the borders entirely, and honestly, that is what motivates some people in the Obama administration and some of their supporters.”

Rubio: Time to End Obamacare Bailout for Insurance Companies.


Florida Sen. Marco Rubio is calling for an end to an Obamacare loophole that provides a bailout for health insurance companies if their costs are driven up by insuring too many sick people.

The “risk corridor” provision, the Republican lawmaker said in a video posted Monday on his YouTube page, “has merit.” However, he complained that the government still should not allow private companies to be bailed out with taxpayers’ money or to use their political influence for provisions and laws that benefit them.

“Because there are, from time to time, in a competitive insurance marketplace, where one to two companies, out of hundreds, will make a mistake,” said Rubio. “Our job is not to keep them in business, but what we don’t want to see happen is the bills that are coming in, let’s say from a hospital or a doctor, go unpaid because the company doesn’t have the money to pay it.”

But Obamacare is “guaranteed to fail” because not enough young and healthy people are signing up, said Rubio, and several of the law’s deadlines have been delayed.

As a result, the healthcare exchange market is “basically the equivalent to a high-risk pool,” or insurance that is guaranteed to lose money, Rubio said.

Story continues below video.

EMBED VIDEO: 

Rubio explained in a November editorial piece for The Wall Street Journal that under the new law, the risk corridors were designed in such an open-ended manner that the president’s action “now exposes taxpayers to a bailout of the health-insurance industry if and when the law fails.”

In Monday’s video, Rubio, who has introduced legislation to stop the bailout, says there is growing bipartisan support for his bill.

There is also growing public demand to stop the insurance companies’ bailouts, said the senator, who read letters in his video from constituents who want the “risk corridor” program ended.
