The Aftermath of the Fire

For us, life will never be the same. We have learned so much from this experience, things that have changed us in our daily life. We look at others differently, and we look at our God differently. Jesus is much bigger to us now, for we have seen the salvation He can bring!

We have heard of twelve other instances, where a believer used those scriptures (John 15:7-8, John 16:23-24, and Psalm 91) to make a claim upon their house, and their house was also miraculously saved! Hallelujah! It was wonderful to watch their face as they testified to me about it. The Holy Spirit’s light shone forth from their face till it seemed as if they glowed.

I also discovered that having cursed items in your home did not remove the legal right to use those scriptures to save the home! (This is a big thing for those of my readers who are stuck living with other unbelievers or pagans!) I know that my believing neighbor has cursed items in her home, for I have seen them. Her and her children are believers, while her husband is not yet a believer. Sadly, their lives testify to the cursed items being there, for great have been the troubles upon those that lived in that home!

That is one thing I have witnessed through this fire. Those who practice deliverance have a peaceful and prosperous life. Those who do not believe in such things as demons affecting Christians, or those who simply do not practice deliverance for themselves, have a life filled with problems.

I had also wondered what it would be like, to stay on land that was not blessed. When we go to stay at a hotel, we bless it with blessed oil, for we know we have the legal jurisdiction over it due to the paying of rent for its use. But we didn’t have that while staying with others during the evacuation. Both homes that we stayed in, were not blessed homes. The Jehovah’s witness home was actually under a curse besides, for the woman of the house has had it blessed by the elders of that cult. I found that much time was spent in spiritual warfare; at the JW house, it was all I could do just to keep up with the attacks. After that incident with the fire demon nightmare and that playing card, (at the unbeliever’s house,) I went out and purchased some olive oil, and then blessed it for our use. I then blessed the beds we used, for the owners of both places stated that we could sleep there. I looked at it as a matter of a gift that was being given to us, and in that case, I hoped that the spiritual laws extended to such gifts from the owner.  It must have worked, for our sleep was much better after blessing the beds.

The Jehovah’s Witnesses contacted us, several weeks after they had kicked us out of their home, saying that they were sad at how things turned out, and that they wanted to get together with us for dinner. The Lord pointed out to me, that this was not an actual apology, (in essence, they were saying that they were sad that I had acted the way I did,) and besides it was the man who initiated the email, and not the woman herself. I found out from her son, that she still felt she was in the right and had done no wrong, and that the father was in agreeance with her. My husband and I prayed to the Lord and asked Him what we should do, and He told us to have nothing further to do with them. He gave me this piece of scripture as His reasoning: “Reject him that is an heretic, after once or twice admonition, Knowing that he that is such, is perverted, and sinneth, being damned of his own self.” (Titus 3:10-11, GNV) I thought to give them another chance, but the Lord reminded me that she had many chances over those two days, as I answered her questions with the scriptures, and that even my son, who is friends with her son, also got kicked out from her home before, because he was trying to answer her questions about hell. So they have had their two chances already. I need not do any more. The Lord told me that he does not want us to go out and dine with a bunch of demons, and that this is in essence what we would be doing if we got together with them. My heart has ached over this, for I hate to think of them being cut off from Jesus.

It has also been sad to see a man that I had hopes for, turn away from Christ yet again. He was doing landscaping for us at the time of the fire. I made the claim to him that the Lord Jesus would save our home from the fire, just moments before evacuating. When he seen that it was spared, he put it all down to luck. This man has had such bad luck, always getting ill in some way, or his kids being in accidents, that I have told him that he either needs a new profession or a new God. He laughed and told me he just needs to be able to hire a bunch of workers that he can order around and everything would be fine. He has yet to understand. I pray that he will come to see that what he really needs is Jesus.

I find myself wanting to go back to those believers who have lost their homes, and testify to them about the scriptures that they could have used to save their homes, so it won’t happen to them again. Yet one of my boys pointed out to me, that they would then feel like it was their fault that their house burnt down. And I can see his point. No one likes to find out that they could have saved their home if they had just used that piece of scripture and believed. So for now, I leave it be. But there may come a time when I might be called to testify to them about it. I pray that if and when that time comes, I will be courageous enough to do it. Hosea 4:6 says “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge…” Apparently their homes can be destroyed too.

The family who’s son called mine to warn us about the fire in the first place, and who ended up losing their home, are cessationists; they believe that speaking in tongues, casting out demons, and healing all died off with the original apostles. We testified to them, that we claimed that piece of scripture and that is why our house was saved. They frowned, but said nothing. I can only pray that the seed takes root in fertile ground. The Lord had told us not to give them any money, and I am glad that we did not, for their insurance is paying them extremely well, though they are having quite a fight with their insurance to get the money. We got a new couch, and we had planned to throw out the old one in the dump, but they asked us for it instead. When I asked the Lord if I could give it to them, He responded with such contempt that it startled me. He said “They can have your garbage!” When I asked Him why He was so angry, He told me that He longs to give them the best, but they insist on relying on man (their church,) and the government, instead of relying on HIM. He feels slighted over their choice to ignore Him. They could have so much more, but they refuse His help and His gifts.

During the middle of the night, several weeks after we had returned, I awoke to the smell of fire. Panic then hit me in the chest so hard, that for a moment I was left breathless. Satan kept trying to convince me that I should get up and go out to see if the fire was close to our house. He told me that it was only luck that saved our house in the last fire, and it would not be saved in this one. At this absurdity the spell was broken, and I laughed out loud and told him that there was no way it was just luck. I then cast him out and claimed in Jesus name that no fire would ever even get close to our house again. I then contentedly fell back asleep.

I have really appreciated the prayers of the believers out there, said on my and my family’s behalf; I could feel them strengthening us as we went through this disaster. May the Lord Jesus Christ return unto you ten times the blessings that you have asked for me!

There is a favorite piece of scripture that I’d like to share with you, that I often like to say during my prayer time. “Be not afraid of sudden fear, neither of the desolation of the wicked, when it cometh. For the LORD shall be thy confidence, and shall keep thy foot from being taken.” (Proverbs 3:25-26 KJV) Amen!

How Witches and Satanists Celebrate Christmas

 

The Word in 2 Corinthians 2:11 says “lest satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices.” This means we are to be aware of the devices of satan. In 1 Corinthians we are told to “…flee from idolatry,” and in 1 Thessalonians 5:22, we read that we are to “abstain from all appearance of evil.”

Well, in order for us to do this, we need to know what evil looks like, what idols look like today, and what satan likes to use to attack man.

For this, we can look at those who are against the Lord Jesus Christ. Satan worshipers are obviously against our God, and witches are too, at least the kind that the illuminati practices. (The wiccan witches and pagans practice much of the same things that illuminati witches and satanists do, but usually abstain from child or animal sacrifices.) By their own words and actions, they have purposely set themselves against our God. And yes, because of this, they have also set themselves against us, as followers of Jesus Christ.

Most Christians that I know of, do not know what witches or satanists do. We study God’s word to show ourselves approved. But if you are like me, just the thought of what evil these groups can bring up, causes us to cringe and look the other way.

Yet today, I have been called to reveal at least some of their practices during this holiday season, so as Matthew 10:26 says “do not be afraid of them, for there is nothing concealed that will not be disclosed, or hidden that will not be made known.”

Parties, drinking alcohol, (drinking ‘spirits’- they are not called ‘spirits’ for nothing,) watching puppet plays and going to the theatre often start out their season. It is all about feeding the self will, so they usually do whatever it is that they desire to do.

They begin decorating their homes, by going out into the forest, usually with their children, pick a fir or pine tree, cut it down, bring it into their main room (usually in front of a big picture window so their god can see it,) and fix it so it does not move. The fir tree (and later the pine tree when they did not have the fir tree,) is considered sacred to them. They believe that this tree is a phallic symbol and a sign of reincarnation of their god nimrod. He was cut down (by Noah’s son,) but he rose again, and does so every year. (Nimrod has many different names throughout the years, odin, nicholas, baal-berith, belial, baphomet, and the winter god, the stag god, the horned god, are but a few of them.) They believe that the yule tree is really symbolic of the human soul, with the trunk being representative of the spine, the branches, the pathways of the witchpower or chi. They decorate this tree with silver and gold, (gold represents nimrod and silver represents semeramis the queen of the heavens.) with chestnuts and fruit, and with cookies, all hung by red and green ribbons, which are also the colors of their season. They also decorate their tree with various colored round glass ball ornaments with a bit of wire or string inside them. These are known as ‘witches balls’ (or christmas ornaments,) and they claim that they catch and hold evil spirits within them. (Some believe that they represent nimrod’s testicles.) Then they will put lighted candles upon the branches of the tree, – currently they now more commonly use electrical holiday lights (these can be different colors,) – which they do to attract their winter god so he can see them and come into their home to bless them. Satanists believe that the lights are symbolic of satan’s serpentine energy. The use of these lights has extended to the outside of their homes as well, and is not limited to just the tree. They may also place lighted candles (electric or otherwise,) in the rest of the windows of their house, to once again, call their god to come inside and spread his blessings and holiday spirit. On top of the tree, they place a five pointed star, which is representative of the risen serpent of satan. (It is also the oldest symbol of nimrod.) Or they place a fairy on top of the tree for good luck, which can sometimes look like an angel. They place presents under the tree, and every time they retrieve a present, they must worship nimrod the tree by kneeling down or bowing down before the tree to grab that present. (No bending down before him, no present.)

In the rest of the house, they hang wreaths on walls and doors, and even place them on flat surfaces, and then place a candle in the center of them, and sometimes even in and around them. These wreaths represent the cycle of life and reincarnation. They are also a symbol of the female organs, and the candle in it’s center is a man’s phallic symbol.

They also place boughs of pine branches, or holly around the house, on tables, mantles, and staircases. Holly holds the red color of the season, and is a symbol of fertility, and then they also hang bits of mistletoe (a very poisonous berry,) from up above, as a way to initiate the sexual rites of the season. Mistletoe is considered a very sacred fertility plant to those in the occult, and is thought to have come directly from the heavens. (The mistletoe berry is also used in potions and spell making.)

They put up pictures and figures of santa and his eight reindeer, for this symbolizes their stag god. The red of santa’s clothing, (trimmed with white,) are also the colors of the season, and the eight reindeer symbolizes reincarnation, for the number eight in gematria also means infinity. Santa claus means satans claws. Santa is also an anagram of satan. He picks up snow and makes it into a ball, so he can use it as a crystal ball, from where he can see into the past. This is how he knows if they have been good or not. It is believed that he can circle the earth within hours, and bring to everyone what they deserve. Followers believe that he leaves presents underneath the decorated tree for everyone in the house. They believe that santa and his helper comes down the chimney to do this. (Black pete was the first helper ‘elf’. Now there are many.) Santa even leaves presents in the stockings for their children, as they supposedly dry out over the mantle of the fireplace. On December 25th, pagans would offer up their child to molech, a stone image with a fire burning under it. They would place their child on the lap of this god, and watch them burn to death. If molech accepted their child’s sacrificial death, then they would have good luck for the following year. The practice of having ones child sit upon santas lap, is symbolic of this. Satanists and witches teach these beliefs to their children through these holiday (or holly day) icons.

Witches will put up a nativity scene, to represent their gods nimrod, (the father,) semeramus, (the queen of heaven who is also a mother,) and tammuz, the child of the two who gets reincarnated every year at this time. (Symbolizes new birth.) Sometimes they will leave the infant out of the nativity scene until the 25th of December, for this is the birth date of tammuz. They then place him in the cradle of the nativity scene.

Some witches and satanists start their actual celebrations on December 21st, while others begin on December 22ond. They have eight nights a year that call for mandatory human sacrifice, and this night is one of them. On this night, a child sacrifice is called for. In both cases, it is celebrated by having different kinds of sex, and killing a person or an animal and drinking their blood, as a sacrifice to their god. Virgins, or the young children of Christians hold the most value, for satan prizes their deaths the most.

They send out christmas cards to their friends and family, with occult symbols on them, often with holly, mistletoe, wreaths, trees, witches ball ornaments, churches with steeples on them, (the steeple is a phallic symbol of nimrod,) or even robins on them. (The robin is thought to symbolically kills the wren to signal the return of light.)

Satanists also celebrate what they call a “black mass,” at this time. This is one of the “rites of blasphemy” that satanists do. It is essentially a parody of the catholic mass. However, keep in mind that satanists, witches, pagans, and wiccans were doing this mass thousands of years before the catholics started. Constantine took it from the pagans and made it into his catholic or common state religion. Interestingly, this catholic mass does not really differ much from what satanists do during their own masses to satan. They both have chalices filled with blood, (the catholics through transubstantiation,) they both have the flesh of their victim (again, the catholics through transubstantiation ,) both have cloth coverings to cover their altars and robes to wear during the ceremony, both have priests and attendants, both use candles, both have their December 24th mass at midnight, both use the same exact smelling incense, both believe in purgatory (called somerset for satanists,) where they work themselves into their paradise, both use bells, both use holy water and both use a pinch of salt to bless it, both have their book of prayers on their altar, both have chalices that are covered with a cloth, and they both eat and drink of their victim’s flesh and blood. (Why the catholics keep crucifying to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame, I do not know; it is as if they believe that the first time was not enough to remove our sins.) Satanists also recite the Lord’s Prayer in reverse, as an extra rite of blasphemy.

As one satanist puts it: “The 23rd is a very special personal day for satan. The sun enters the sign of the goat which represents satan. The night of December 22nd- the eve of December 23rd is the highest satanic holy night of the year. This is a time for intense celebration and devotion to satan, indulgence, decorating the home, family celebrations and getting together. The night of Dec. 22nd should be spent in dedication to satan.” Satanists know that these pagan gods are actually demons and they celebrate them as such.

Satanists and witches are not afraid to say “merry christmas”, for they know that what they are really saying is “Let us be merry about killing the anointed one again!” (Their anointed one, or christ, is not the same as ours.)

December 24th brings their “high grand climax”, where they call forth demons to have sex with them. They also have more animal and human sacrifices to their god, (Which they usually do between the hours of 12:00 midnight and 3:00am,) and continue on in their parties and revelry.

December 25th, is the culmination of saturnalia, which they mark with many great banquets and feasts, drinking until they are drunk and can drink no more. When they are not drunk, they go from place to place, wassailing and bringing gifts to each other. (These celebrations are very similar to the drunken festival of babylon.) It is all about feeding the will and indulging the self. (That is after all, at least for satanists, the whole of their law.) Some begin this practice four days before the 25th, for that is the official start of the celebration of saturnalia. On the 25th of December, infant sacrifice is encouraged. In the bible, they sacrificed infants to molech on December 25th. Witches and satanists still do this today.

They celebrate the twelve days of Christmas with a yule log. This is supposed to bring them good luck and protection. This is also a sex and fertility symbol. It is nimrod cut down and come back to life again. This yule log has three holes in it, with three candles placed in it, one black, one white, and one red. Corn and wine is poured over it and a blessing is spoken over it. This log is burned in the fireplace for the twelve days after December 25th. (It used to be one huge long log, but this became too dangerous for some, and they now divide it up to burn daily.) The ashes from this yule log is collected and used for healing and spell casting for the coming year. A piece of this log is always saved for the following year, so the same familial generational spirits are sure to get transferred from year to year. Orgies and general debauchery continues into these twelve days, till the end of the twelfth day marks the end of the holiday season.

Well, now that you know how the satanists and witches celebrate christmas, I am hoping that you will be able to identify the devices of satan, and avoid such idolatry and appearances of evil.

Jeremiah 10:2-4, “Thus saith the Lord, learn not the way of the heathen; and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven. For the heathen are dismayed at them. For the customs of the people are vain. For one cutteth a tree out of the forest. The work of the hands of the workman with the axe. They deck it with silver and with gold. They fasten it with nails and with hammers that it move not.”

“Yea, the fir trees rejoice at thee, [and] the cedars of Lebanon, [saying], Since thou art laid down, no feller is come up against us.” Isaiah 14:8 – (This was what the fir trees said when Nimrod was finally killed. Sadly their relief was short lived…)

“What concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? and what agreement hath the temple of God with idols?” 2 Cor. 6:15,16.

Revelation 2:6, 15, “But this thou hast (in thy favour), that thou hatest the deeds of the Nicolaitanes which I (Christ) also hate. So hast thou also them that hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitanes (the followers of nicholas/nimrod,) which thing I (Christ) hate.”
(See http://www.triumphpro.com/nicolaitans.htm to help define what the nicolaitanes were and still are.)

“Therefore shall ye keep mine ordinance, that ye commit not any one of these abominable customs, which were committed before you, and that ye defile not yourselves therein: I am the Lord your God.” Leviticus 18:30

Deuteronomy 12: 30-32 “Take heed to thyself that thou be not snared by following them, after that they be destroyed from before thee; and that thou enquire not after their gods, saying, How did these nations serve their gods? even so will I do likewise. 31 Thou shalt not do so unto the Lord thy God: for every abomination to the Lord, which he hateth, have they done unto their gods; for even their sons and their daughters they have burnt in the fire to their gods. 32 What thing so ever I command you, observe to do it: thou shalt not add thereto, nor diminish from it.”

“Do not defile yourselves in any of these ways, because this is how the nations that I am going to drive out before you became defiled. Even the land was defiled, so I punished it for its sin, and the land vomited out its inhabitants….Anyone who does any of these detestable things — such persons must be cut off from their people. Keep my requirements and do not follow any of the detestable customs that were practiced before you came and do not defile yourselves with them. I am the Lord your God” (Lev. 18:24-30).

“Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. For laying aside the commandment of God, ye hold the tradition of men…” (Mark 7:7-8).

“Ye hypocrites, well did Isaiah prophesy of you, saying, ‘This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouths, and honoreth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. But in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men” (Matt. 15:7-9).

Hebrews 6:1,6 “Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God,… If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame.”

Revelation 18:3-4 3 For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies. And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.

Jeremiah 44:3-5, 11, 19, 29 “Because of their wickedness which they have committed to provoke me to anger, in that they went to burn incense, and to serve other gods, whom they knew not, neither they, ye, nor your fathers. 4 Howbeit I sent unto you all my servants the prophets, rising early and sending them, saying, Oh, do not this abominable thing that I hate. 5 But they hearkened not, nor inclined their ear to turn from their wickedness, to burn no incense unto other gods…11 Therefore thus saith the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel; Behold, I will set my face against you for evil, and to cut off all Judah…19 And when we burned incense to the queen of heaven, and poured out drink offerings unto her, did we make her cakes to worship her, and pour out drink offerings unto her, without our men?… 29 And this shall be a sign unto you, saith the Lord, that I will punish you in this place, that ye may know that my words shall surely stand against you for evil.”

“I am the Lord your God. You must not do as they do in Egypt, where you used to live, and you must not do as they do in the land of Canaan, where I am bringing you. Do not follow their practices. You must obey my laws, and be careful to follow my decrees” (Lev. 18:2-4).

“Wherefore say unto the house of Israel, Thus saith the Lord God; Are ye polluted after the manner of your fathers? and commit ye whoredom after the manner of their abominations?…ye pollute yourselves with all your idols, even unto this day….But as for you, O house of Israel, thus saith the Lord God: Go ye, serve ye every one his idols, and hereafter also, if ye will not hearken unto me: but pollute ye My Holy Name no more with your gifts, and with your idols” (Ezek. 20:30-39).

Deut. 12:16 “Only ye shall not eat the blood; ye shall pour it upon the earth as water.”

1st Timothy 4:1 “Now the Spirit speaks expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils.”

“Well did Isaiah prophesy of you hypocrites . . . ‘in vain they worship Me, teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.’ . . . All too well you reject the commandment of God, that you may keep your tradition” (Mark:7:6-9).

Colossians 2:16 “Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of a holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days.” “This verse is often used out of context to justify keeping pagan holidays, but it is saying just the opposite. We are not to judge those who want to keep the feasts of YaHuWaH from Leviticus 23 that are called “holy.” We don’t have to sacrifice animals any longer under the new administration of grace. Every believer in Yahuwshuwa is now under the royal priesthood of Melchizedek (1st Peter 2:9), and so we do not need to do the temple ceremonial laws when keeping these feasts. We can be led by the Holy Spirit in how we keep these holy days. This verse is in no way condoning keeping pagan days, because YaHuWaH never called them holy in the first place.” (http://doubleportioninheritance.blogspot.com/2011/09/december-25th-birth-of-antichrist_22.html)

“Broad is the way that leads to destruction and many there be which go in thereat,” Matthew 7:13. (Think of all those celebrating like the witches and satanists do. The whole world is doing it!)

Col. 2:8 helps us to understand this fact. 2:8 ” Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.”

“Abstain from all appearance of evil.” -1 Thessalonians 5:22

No One To Pray For Them

The other day, while making dinner, I was listening to a song by J. Moss called “The Prayers”. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0wUbK2EssfQ)

The song starts out saying “You know what? I’ve been looking for somebody. Not just anybody, but a special somebody.” Then it asked “Who can get a prayer through? Can anybody out there pray for me, without even knowing what I need? Can anybody pray unselfishly? Can anybody out there pray for me, without even knowing a whole lot about me?” Then it sang of the glory of ‘the prayers of the righteous.’

And I thought for a moment, of those believers out there, who might have no one to help pray with them. For example, I thought of an old woman who might be last of her line, or a young man being held in a prison cell, without any outside support. I knew that there were people out there in this world, who had no one to help them in their prayers to the Lord Jesus. This saddened me.

Then I decided right then and there, to pray for those people.

I didn’t quite know how to begin, (I even thought of speaking in tongues for them, ) but suddenly the words came to me.

‘Oh Jesus,” I began, “please grant the requests of those who are yours, but have no one else to pray for them. Your Word states ‘For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.’ (Matthew 18:20) It also states ‘That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.’ (Matthew 18:19) It doesn’t say in Your Word that we have to be right next to each other. Well Lord, You have also told me that You are not limited by distance, time, or space. (https://dreamsofdunamis.wordpress.com/2012/04/01/pray-for-carolina/) So Lord, I pray as one with them, that You would answer their prayers. Whatever it would be, I ask you along with them, to give it to them, according to Your Will.”

Suddenly, as I was finishing up the last few sentences of this prayer, a vision open up before me. Angels were coming right up to my mouth as I was speaking, and just as the humming bird darts up to a flower to sip its nectar, the angels were taking my words as soon as they came out from my lips, and were darting off elsewhere, to bring them to those who had need of them most.

I gasped when I seen them; they were so beautiful. They moved so fast, that it was hard to see each one clearly. I did see that they did not have wings like most people depict angels to have; I could see no feathers or wings at all on them. But what I did see, was that they moved so very fast, that the lighted air around them moved and swirled around their bodies, forming what some might see and think of as wings. Brightness was foremost, and was ever so slightly highlighted with the iridescent colors of blue, pink, purple, and green.

The moment I finished my prayer, the vision ended.

I marveled at the vision, and at the power that our words have.

I already knew how our words can become a curse against us (https://dreamsofdunamis.wordpress.com/2014/02/14/beware-of-the-jinx-demon/) and I knew that the Word of God was very powerful indeed. (“For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.” – Hebrews 4:12, and ” So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.” Isaiah 55:11) I even knew the power of a believer’s word in claiming blessings for oneself and family. (https://dreamsofdunamis.wordpress.com/2014/10/02/what-ebola-really-is/) But for some reason, it never occurred to me, that the words of praying for someone you don’t even know, could still be so powerful. I had thought that there had to be a personal connection of some kind, for them to have such incredible power.

It is nice to know that my prayers will be brought to those who have need of them most. I pray that I will remember to pray for others, even while doing something as mundane as making supper. I think it would be interesting, to get to heaven, and have the Lord show me just how each of these prayers I uttered ended up helping another. It is exciting to me, to realize that the Lord can still use our prayers for His glory and His kingdom, even while we go about doing our usual work in this world…
