Forgiven?  

 

below is the audio that is shown on the first page. Here is the the audio with the original words.

https://youtu.be/GexmzL3u5EI?feature=shared

Dare I ask, one more time dear Lord forgive me? How many times have I said, “never again,” then ran into the same sin’s wall. Do the leaves beg to lift and turn away from the sun or the rain? Why would they, a gift from God tis both. Nature has forgiveness for being nature. Man has forgiveness for being Jesus’s children. But, how many times can we tempt His forgiveness? 

 

Too many times fallen, does that mean fallen forever?  Jesus is love and suffered more than we can image for those very sins we keep commenting. I say we, I mean me. I do believe His love and once more I am forgiven but, will take time to wash that dirt off the soul’s eye.

 

Withering without His love, wishing to throw self in front of traffic or against harms way to beg once more for forgiveness and to use the pain to remove such. But only Jesus can forgive sins with pain, with His death on a cross so many years ago. Did He cover the last one feel it   once more? Is that one not covered and now I am doomed into the forever of sadness and no love? I will close my eyes and pretend I didn’t type that nor even thought it. Then, Jesus will smile and say, “You are forgiven my son, but sin no more.” I can see His gentle smile with the corner of his eyes showing a bit of sadness from my sin against Him. 

 

So we walk through our day, we try to live in this world without living in this world. We cannot do the earthly pleasures for the most part, they are all a sin. But with Jesus and His love we don’t want such pleasures, or do we? Do others rationalize sin like I just did? “Oh you are a good guy Mitch, He will forgive you, just one more time.”   No, I dare say, this is almost blasphemy and that such sin of the Holy Spirit one cannot return from.

 

So I rambled a bit into word that will never be seen by anyone by God. I invite Michael the Archangel and all the warrior angels to my side. Protect me and keep me in  proper stance with my soul’s glance.

 

God bless you all, for He truly is a whisper away.

Is there a time when you will not be tempted? 

is there ever a time in life one does not give into temptations? Some say of course! I say, there is a time you are more aware it is wrong but rationalize it and sin.. then fall into the cycle of sin ask forgiveness try then fail. Is there ever a time you are not tempted? The time that occurs, is when you see and know it is a wrong action, and learned to pray and get busy with things, removing self from familiar temptations.
 
is there ever a time.. one is not tempted? Only when one truly reads the Bible daily, prays for discernment. Then, and only then, when the sin approaches with the whispering demons, you truly are aware of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. With God in front of the temptation you will not fail.
Is there ever a time in life one does not give into temptations? The time that is the most dangerous is this, Knowing the Holy Spirit, Jesus and God are looking right at you. Not a'faith' of knowing, a knowing knowing. As you give in, once more to a familiar sin and you literally are aware of their presence and you know it is a sin? That my friends is very very close to Blasphemy toward the Holy Spirit.
pray, talk, walk with, be with on a constant in thought process either asking or giving thanks to God. Reach out to someone if you are about to do it ..yet one more time.
God will help you know
God bless you

Jesus walks through evil to save us 

Walking through this life trying to do the right thing.. we learn to talk to/ pray to the Lord and read our bible. Then with that reach God helps us to the levels it is time for us to be on.  The enemy doesn’t give up, wanting to destroy the light that is God, that is in all of us. Has nothing to do with YOU, has to do with the enemy’s hatred of God. We are all born in His image and he wants to destroy what God loves and created.

 

God, not invasive, giving us free will, always allows us to sin. but the Holy spirit is always there or at least until you rebuke Him by sinning too many times, then heart is hardened. A hardened heart is one that has turned away and removed God, which is removing LOVE from self and spirit. Hence heart, represents love is hardened, no love exists. Which is an energy, a level of energy is love and is evil. The two do not mix, cannot live together.

 

We have many chances, The Holy Spirit convicts us, that means we have regret, we feel bad. We have a covering of not good feeling and words being whispered into our ears from the enemy, “you are no good” you cannot be with good.” So we pray and God says I have you my child.  GOD, walks into and through evil  to save us, to stop us from sinning because we asked for help. 

 

As I was failing once, a sin that I was always giving into, a little then stopping.  Sometimes not stopping and finalizing the sin, then regret hits. As I was failing, Jesus stepped into the middle of the vile and lifted me away from that sin. He didn’t have to. He lets us choose.

 

Jesus stepped into sin on the cross. Took on its vile, its pain and its separation from the FATHER,  HE purposefully took this step to save us and help us not be forever in pain and agony in hell, but to be in joyous love in heaven. To be surrounded with love and go to all the worlds through time, God the Father will create!

 

Think about how bad hell must be, if the Son of God had to come here in flesh as man to take on torture, To let the enemy spit and rip His skin off. To mock Him with each lash. Jesus, with one thought could have destroyed them and the whole world.  Legions of angels would be around Him. but, He allowed, He walked into the sin, the darkness the vile to save us, to die for us. 

 

A parent will do what is needed to help their child. I walked into a dangerous situation. I went to a place to save my daughter..I prayed and with a gun in my pocket ready to use it if needed. The place was dangerous, where life didn’t matter, where the ones that choose evil walked. I was told by friends not to go! 

 

I was able to help her but only by walking into danger, not caring if something happened to me.  That is what Jesus did on that cross and now He still does, walks into evil, right next to us.

 

John 15:13 

Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. …  Jesus lay down His life        

God walks into our sinful flesh, stands next to us watching while we sin. God see’s all we do evil and the good   

Proverbs 15:3 

The eyes of the Lord are in every place, beholding the evil and the good.

HE  does this when we ask for help, in the middle of the sin we we whisper, while we sin, help me Lord!!!    

That is when He walks right to you and gives you His hand. He stands next to the vile you are participating in. all of His light and love, in the middle of them mocking Him, while they drop their evil upon your skin and soul.

 

We can walk through this life and learn the way to live and separate from the life/ flesh of life, and walk in Spirit with God and still live in life! Enjoying this beautiful world He created! 


 

A Day in the Life of a Healer, at least with Mitch 

 

I hold the Holy Trinity close to my heart daily. God is in my every thought as is an awareness and desire to pray for all that I see as I go through the day. March 31,2024, was a day of different moments of the Holy Spirit's touch. 

A FATHER WAITING ON HIS SON

I had to drop something at the hospital, and as I walked past a man standing outside pediatric surgery center. I was shown his worry, his prayers and his child. I closed my eyes as I walked past him, he was waiting anxiously to get through the door to see his child. I always close my eyes for a moment when beginning to be shown the light from the Holy Spirit. I either see a child, or a person or silhouette of someone, then Holy Spirit light moves through and around them, where they need healing. The Holy Spirit showed me he had prayers going to God and then light from me the Holy Spirit going to his prayer, then into the surgery area away from him.  That light was to join his prayer for his son and fill it with healing heading to his son. I was shown son would be ok. 

MANY WAVES OF LIGHT TO ALL WAITING

As I walked toward the office where I needed to drop off paperwork, there were many people at registration signing in for tests to be done. An elderly lady who just signed in and turned to the seating area was slow in movement. I closed my eyes and was shown a small bit of light, then I ‘prayed,’ and ask God to help her not feel pain, to move easily and to be healed if His will. 

I turned to look at all waiting to have tests done. Was shown fear, pain and strength. I then was shown light moving to all sitting in the area, as I closed my eyes. The Holy Spirit showed me many thick waves of light going to all.The light came from beyond the ceiling. Other times the light moves from me, where the Holy Spirit, the great comforter and the blessing from our Father is indwelling.

Sometimes the light is just on the person and I am shown, this light was very thick which usually means good healing from God. This was like watching a breeze move to and through the waiting area into the people needing help.

I have to close my eyes and settle into my depth,  then He shows me. As a healer one has authority over the Holy Spirit. The closer to God with faith, more miracles can occur, for the Holy Spirit works through all healers. We, as humans do nothing but aim to be as clear of sin as possible and that only happens because of His grace.  I have to start the ‘prayer,’ then the Holy Spirit moves.

As I walked back to my car I closed my eyes and sent the Holy Spirit to all that needed help and have been prayed for. To all that were till suffering for them to not feel pain and to heal. prayed for all in the hospital that God was waiting for prayer. I will say I ‘pray,’ for this is a level where the Holy Spirit moves from me that I cannot explain.

If i see someone walking to a store and their gait is favored with obvious pain, I close my eyes for a moment, and light goes. Sometimes no light is shown, so I ‘pray.’ Help them not hurt, help them financially help them feel your presence and peace, Jesus to the Father I pray.

God was working that day, but He works everyday for us. He sees our every moment, He is watching me type this and you reading this. Not one moment is left unseen by our Father. That thought alone may help all not sin! We fail, Jesus takes care of that when we repent and denounce sin. Jesus gave us that gift, to be forgiven. 

Do I know if He helped them? I cannot put down a name and a this or a that, but I  KNOW He did. That my friends is the power of faith and God's love.

God bless you that read this and may God bless you with peace and an answer to your troubles. Worry about nothing, pray about everything

Bottled in Bond in Jesus name I say ... 

Bottled in Bond  In Jesus name I say

 

Hello darkest ones that the Lord is trying to lift into a puddle of happiest waters. Did you know we are mostly water? Did you know that the Holy Spirit showed Himself to me as waters? Yes, one day as He took over my voice and asked “May I pray for you?” This was unbeknownst to me at the time. My right hand came up beside my head, palm open towards the cashier that was having trouble breathing. She answered quickly with an obvious faith “Yes!” And she lowered her head in respect. I was shown waters moving from me, in a rectangular way of movement right into her. She breathed in immediately and her complete countenance changed. She was in that instant, healed from a life long path of asthma.

 

Yes, darkest ones that the Lord is trying to lift into that puddle of happiest waters. This is a true miracle and one of many miracles He has used me to move and work through. Did you know that God is not intrusive? That the Father waits for us to ‘ask’ so that then He shall answer? Oh yes, mighty darkest ones waiting for the cool puddle of happiest waters of the Holy Spirit.

 

I am a sinner, as we all are but I feel I am a bad sinner person. Yet, God is using me, attempting to use me to keep me in His word. For if I fail enough and too many times, He has thousands He can turn to and use. YOU also, can be used by the Father of all things. But, ya gotta stop sinning. But Mitch? I enjoy booze and the ladies and the indulgent way of human life. I cannot stop such things, so I guess I will burn.  “Yea, you will,” I say to those that say these words my way. Again, God is not intrusive so we all begin a journey of temptation like never before in our lives when we decide, to hear God asking for us to follow and give our lives to Him.

 

But Mitch, I cannot give up my greed and the pleasures of the women through my touch all turns to ecstasy! How dare you suggest such to me, that God would want that unhappiness in my life! Go thither away from me! “Ah, you protest too much my friend in love with God and love.”

 

The silence and calmness that becomes you when you choose God, has no description. Denounce even your coffee for I tell you true we are only shown by contrasts the horrible and the beautiful in life. Contrasts of good and evil. Oh, but Mitch you are boring me with such banter. I must go drink bourbon and become wise unto the lady that winks my way. I must become her pleasure and be the all she seeks. Of course, when morning finds I will leave her in that puddle of fake love and vile fornication. But, Mitch, I am forgiven right?

 

I dare say, yes but thou tempt the Lord too many  times and away from Him is your soul.  There is no returning if you do such animosity to our God.

 

Hear me those that will hear me. I was shown the way of heaven with its beauty and love I cannot describe. I was shown peace that literally causes your soul to fly into tears of love. I was shown the evil, I fought until it killed me as I turned my back to its claws that were razors. Hear me, you have a path with God, He knew you before birth. YOU had a conversation with Him about your life here, You knew what you were getting into. This is but a teeny bit of time, a vapor of time. Hear me you that wants the pleasures of the woman or the man. That wants the money through greed to destroy all to get that bit of cash. Hear me if you can hear me. Stop giving in to sin. Sin, is death to forever with love. Sin, is choice of forgotten spies and no place to lay thy head with peace. Sin, is the lost cough upon the spew of filth across your soul and the only place you will be allowed to sleep. Covered in the stench and lifting redundantly into its vile. Your choice when you remain in the way of evil and flesh.

 

Tell me something, you are complete with God’s light, you are born in His image, your soul. Your spirit has to grow in life. The many times you say no to sin, the many times you helped another without gain or reward. The times you opened a door for someone and said, “have a blessed day.” The sins of your family can stop with you. Did you know you have the power to stop the generational sin lineage? Just takes one of the blood of that sin. 

The demons that have whispered the same temptations to your ancestors, are whispering to you now. And you are giving into their bottled in bond 100 proof temptations. Stand up and reach for our Lord God through Jesus to the Father all things are heard. Then when they whisper, when they physically touch you in an erotic way, when they whisper for you to curse another, when they whisper, one more drink, it’s ok. Step away and say ‘NO!” Then they have to flee.    I am not saying you will always remain steadfast and not sin, but it will get fewer and fewer times you give in. Why, you ask. Because God sees you trying and asking for help. God is not intrusive. So ask, plead, beg, scream to stop! Then walk through your day with His word. Going to the Bible, hearing what you can hear and doing what you can do, with God. 

 

Hello darkest ones in life here. We who are the greatest of sinners need to be ready to love God. To tell that person over there, “stop! God is here and loves you!”

 

Hello darkest ones of life here, I am darkest also but I strive for His love, for His peace and for His forgiveness from His Son Jesus. Did you know that every sin you are committing now He died for 2000 years ago for forgiveness of it. 

Did you know God knew you before you were born and knew your choices. Did you know you are loved beyond time for He gave Jesus to suffer our pain.  

Did you know I also love you for you are my brother, my sister, my mother my father. We are all born of Christ Jesus, WE are all born from love.

 

Did you know……………..  


 

Imagine the immense pain and horror Jesus had in that one moment..  

A thought came to me today while praying and thinking about Jesus. I think of Him often,His love for us His pain he endured for us. While i make the crosses, i see His suffering with each carving and shaping of the cross. OUR vile actions against the Father that Jesus knew he would take on. From the beginning, imagine doing nothing wrong but loving all, teaching words of love, showing the will of His Father. He said often He was doing the will of the Father. In a holy vision to me that is being finalized into song, the words “your desires are the Father's, only His way is the way.” Shows that Jesus, who is the Son of God, who is one of the Holy Trinity, was doing the Father's will.

He prayed three different times in the Garden on the night of Him being taken away. Three times for at least an hour each time. For He admonished them that they could not stay awake for ‘at least’ an hour. So, possibly a little less. Imagine the intensity of the prayers, Jesus talking to His Father, knowing the suffering He would endure. 

Mark 14:34 KJV  And saith unto them, My soul is exceeding sorrowful unto death: tarry ye here, and watch 

The long tortured journey to the hill to be finally nailed to the cross. Suffering immeasurably. Now the moment comes. He knew He was almost done with His task of saving us. Our sins ripped through Him with every lash, torn into him with each nail. Every drop of blood a scream through the halls of His soul! Pain of which we will never experience. 

Then.. Separation from the Father. Forever was with the Father until that moment. Imagine the intensity of the pain our Lord felt then yelled out. Obviously the knowledge of that moment of separation  was kept from Him. He did not know He would not feel the presence of the Father. That is the horrendous amount of sins committed so bad and so many that Jesus had to feel separation from the Father for the first time, in time. In the existence of time. To take on pain we will never know, to be so tortured physically, then had to be separated from the Father. i cannot even imagine Jesus's sorrow  silence in His soul, His Father turned away

Father God will not look at sin, Jesus had taken all the sins to the point of being completely blotted out of the Father's vision. I believe there are two reasons for the separation. One, is because He will not look upon Sin, and I feel Jesus had to feel, experience the pain of the void life is without the Father, that is the horrendous amount of sins He took away.

Explaining the narrow gate and road to Heaven and the wide gate and road to hell 

“Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it” (Matthew 7:13-

 

One way to see this. Think of sin as gaining weight, with each pound gained we get larger, unable to fit through the narrow gate of heaven. God's word is healthy, keeps us thin enough to fit. When we ask forgiveness it is like a diet pill. Slowly there will be a change, as soon as repentance and denouncing the sin occurs, we are removed the weight, the sin.

Another way:

I recently stumbled, a nice way to put when one sins when trying to walk the path of holy and with God. “Mitch, just repent and renounce.”  Yes this is true God does forgive because of Jesus's sacrifice for us we can be forgiven. 

The narrow gate and road to heaven is truly very simply put and done by our God. When we stay the path with His word, His commandments we are immediately on the narrow road. When we sin, which truly we are walking sinners but when we ‘stumble’ we know to ask forgiveness and renounce it and not do it again. 

The tempters are tenacious and never stopping their whispering temptations into your ear. Have you ever noticed you are going about your normal day, then out of the blue in the literal middle of a conversation or sitting with friends you feel you need a drink. Everyone of us has their weaknesses, mine was a bit of drink which lead to other easy to fall into sins. Something about sinning, it is always easy to do. Something about walking the path God wants, it is always difficult to do. Because we have not gotten close enough into His word to strengthen our ‘spiritual muscle,’ if you will and the tempter is the Prince of this world he makes the pleasures more pleasurable.

Out of the literal blue you want a drink or someone who has been pushing you and pushing you but you have relaxed and forgiven them. You snap, then in anger curse at them! Two sins right there, anger and foul language. 

 “No, Mitch that is just life and being a human.” That thought of it being a human having anger and cursing at someone is natural is also from the enemy. God hates anger and foul language. 

Colossians 3:8 - 3:10

8 But now ye also put off all these; anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication out of your mouth.

9 Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds;

10 And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him:

We carry on with our day and some time goes by, “oh, i can have just one shot of tequila.” After half a bottle and another sin added to it, we stumbled again. We ask forgiveness and beg to have help not to fail anymore. 

With each stumble it is like driving down our Lord's narrow road to Heaven and we swerve a little. We hit those warning ridges that cause us to pull back onto the road. Those warning ridges are the Holy Spirit convicting us, letting us know we are doing wrong. Now, back on the easy narrow road, it is easy if you stay in His word and obey His commandments, which is very obvious it is not easy for humans. 

The next stumble, which is the 5th in as many months, guess what happens. The warning ridges begin to wear away. They are being run over too often and start to smooth. We stop feeling any conviction of wrong doing, rationalizing it as just life and we are good people God knows our hearts. 

With every continuing sin, a side road is formed, so we have room to keep living a sinful life and feel, “I love God, I love all..” Then sin against God with anger, cursing, gossip, laziness

We all have our weaknesses that have been noticed by the enemy. And they are always whispering, waiting to see what we type, see if we are driving to the booze store. See if we are texting something sexual, gossiping, lying.

 Then they add pleasure to it, they pounce and celebrate the soon stumble once more away from God. They laugh at God showing Him how easily His supposed sons and daughters fall away from Him. They get to rest, when we stumble. Two reasons they are tenacious and always whispering and tempting us, 1) they hate God, and we are in the image of God. 2) they get to rest with each fall from us. 

 

 

Proverbs 4:16 kjv

“For they sleep not, except they have done mischief; and their sleep is taken away, unless they cause some to fall.”

 

With each time we give up trying to walk / drive/ the narrow road with God, it becomes a very wide road. That has been expanded by all of our sins that we did not repent nor renounce. Now justified in our minds eye, we speak the way of God “I love God I love all!” then we stab them in the back with gossip, which is murder. 

 

The easy way to Heaven is the easy narrow Gate and Road God teaches us how to walk or drive down.

The enemy can do nothing unless we listen to their temptations and sin. The enemy has no power except to make all earthly things very pleasurable, then drop you in the dirt yelling in your ear how pitiful and dirty you are. They bring the temptation of yay, then degrade you with disgust and tell you God hates you and you will never be forgiven.

That which is inside you is greater than anything in the world.  God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit have us.

Truly, easy is it to walk the narrow road and walk through the narrow gate when we stay in God's word, obey His commandments and love.  Easy peasy!

 

May God bless all that read this with clear knowledge and knowing He loves us still until we turn so far away and fill with sin. He cannot even see us. Then we are walking the wide road and will fit through the wide gate to hell. God does not look upon sin. He had to turn away from His Only Begotten Son, who took on all of our sins up to the time He returns.

 

 

Another way to see this. Think of sin as gaining weight, with each pound gained we get larger. God's word is healthy. When we ask forgiveness it is like a diet pill. Slowly there will be a change, as soon as repentance and denouncing the sin occurs, we are removed the weight, the sin.

 

 

 

Being The Church 

BE THE CHURCH

Mitch Bensel

Everyone can be the church.

 

Proverbs 3:27-28 KJV

Withhold not good from them to whom it is due, when it is in the power of thine hand to do it. Say not unto thy neighbour, Go, and come again, and to morrow I will give; when thou hast it by thee.

The other day my neighbor  was shaking and weak and was headed downstairs to get his laundry. I said, You want me to go get it for you and bring it back up?” He said, No it's broken again. It's gonnabe a week.”

I just put my hand on his shoulder. I didn’t plan on it .. was a feeling to just place my hand on his shoulder. No words were said. Just by doing that brought a thought of comfort. You don't realize it when you do it. So, in that moment he looked back at me and calmed. 

For That moment of compassion was from God and he felt calmed, not by my hand but by God moving to him from my compassion. You don't have to give everybody all you own, you don’t have to walk the streets and be homeless you just have to have kindness. Which is very rare now .. or fake and just a ‘work’ being done.

Most of us feel we have to do a magnificent thing to ‘be the church.’ God doesn't need magnificence from us. He is the magnificence. 

The smallest little light is all He needs from us, kindness to others. Kindness imparts love. kindness imparts God, God is love. Kindness literally imparts the Holy Spirit.

Love all, we are truly brothers and sisters here. When you do good things, it gives God’s  light to the person and you are representing Him. You can just smile at someone or you open the door for them.  God trickles into that person as you open the door because it's a kindness. When your kindness is done, God is present. That's when you would be the church. 

Being the church is being aware of others from a place of love, compassion and kindness. Is very easy to see if someone needs  help or even to engage in casual conversation at the checkout. Show kindness with a gentle tone and a thank you. The service industry is massively verbally abused. BE that one calm soul they saw that day. Let them take that moment of ‘kindness’ which will impart the Holy Spirit right into them. Bring that smile to them. Follow the nudges of even what to say. “thank you for being here today or I couldn’t buy my barbecue chips.”

Being the church is doing what Jesus would do. Being the church is all about love and our actions  Whatever you are drawn to do, do that, then that is what God wants you to do. He never forces. It's never a forced action of kindness. That's fake. That's a ‘work’ that's not from the soul. Thats a look at what I'm doing.” That is YOU getting something out of it not them.

Generally,  doing something very small, usually something very simple  impacts that person more than all the money in the world would because God is involved, compassion and kindness that flows literally from our words and actions covered with God’s love. They feel it. They begin to think of God. The more they think, they begin to reach. The more they reach, God says I'm right here. They begin to hear God. 

I was in a busy bakery once. They make you take a number for they are always very busy. I hadn’t taken one yet then they said, “don’t forget to take a number. A lady that was in front of me, that was there before I walked in, she reached at the same time I did, but I was closer and got it first. I immediately handed it to her “you are next.” She stood for several seconds motionless  with her mouth open in total shock. She finally spoke, “This never happens, usually it would be ‘tough luck’.” I repeated, “you are next.” She stood motionless for a bit then slowly took the ticket from me, not looking at me looking away but still in obvious disbelief this happened. That moment of simple common sense, respect and kindness flew into her with God’s light. Think of how sad it is that this very small ‘right thing to do’ was so unbelievable to her every sense. BUT she felt kindness which obviously had not been present in her world.

That's why kindness is so important and so easy to do. Kindness that's simple really isn’t it?. It's beautiful.

Hes showing me as I'm telling you about the lights. I see them move from us to the ones we help. Just imagine Jesus looking at you in the crowd and just smiling, and waving, and walking on by. Jesus … God's Son but also a man of flesh. He's just smiling at you. Jesus never thought of himself was always for all around him, was for us. As we walk in His glory we walk with love and kindness. Jesus didn’t judge He simply smiled. With that moment, even from Jesus, it was a wee trickle of light that the one standing by the side of the road felt to their souls core. Love is carried by light to touch our spirit. God is spirit and spirit talks to spirit as we must talk with Him in spirit. When we do a kindness we are feeling compassion, which is caring, which is love which is from God. He's never forceful. He does everything gently and kindness my friends, is a gentle way to be the church. It is a magnificent way to be the church, it is a 

simple way, to be the church.

You know, truly, the kindness isn't for you. It is for that other person. 

If there is no connection to God, that is a forced action, its useless. What a HUGE lost opportunity to impart the Holy Spirit. What is a connection to God Mitch? The action is for the person not for what you can get out of it.

Please  do a simple kindness out of the blue when nudged. When a thought hits, “help them” “pray for them” “smile at them” “comfort them if they look distressed, not with fancy talk or loud movements but gentle and calm” that nudge will never be heard if not learning to love all as self.

 A neighbor fell and after she got home from the ER a thought came to me, “get her some flowers to help her smile and let go of the memory.” Kindness. It came to mind, it was an action of good fruit hence from God so I did it. Not wanting anything but to help her not feel anguish or sadness over the ordeal. Everytime she looks at those flowers she will feel peace and God’s love. Why Mitch? Because they were given with love and a wish of peace when she glanced upon their beauty. Light from God is a smile, God’s presence is a feeling of peace. Those flowers daily will give her peace and calmness with just a glance.

 

To be the church is when you're walking through your day, you just open the door for somebody, or pick up something somebody dropped, or look at them, and  say a prayer for them in your mind, if they're wobbly, The kindness creates, God's action,  To be the church is to always have God on your mind and in your heart. For that is when you will quickly and easily hear Him and do a small or large bit of kindness that you will know is from God. 

God. The forefront of my mind is always on God.  This is how it should be. Im  always thinking about God, and  He should be in front of your every thought. God. God. God is right there. It's like angels sing praise to God 24/7. I can feel and see it in my way. I see the name God. Or I see a light always there in my mind.  God. God. God. God.

If I walk, I'll say Thank you. Help me God. Keep me safe.”

I'll stop and go. When there are sirens, I stop and get into the prayer place and say the same prayers, help them be ok, help all around have compassion, help them know how to heal them, help them feel your peace Lord and know all will be ok. Sometimes there is an added, “if they need an attorney let it happen easily and let them not be afraid.”

I have witnessed too many countless times the power of kindness, the power of prayer. YOUR one time kindness to a total stranger has the potential to literally change their entire life. With kind thoughts God is present, with kind actions, God is present. yes God is ever present but we ‘as the church’ must become the vessel that literally drops His light into all. Kindness does that. because, as I repeat and I have repeated myself quite a bit. We are a slow folk in the noggin and sometimes have to read or hear things several different ways and times.

That’s being the church.. That’s a love no matter who they are, or their lifestyles, all people not just those people that you agree with their decisions and way of life ALL people.  ALL

Being kind  to all is such a simple concept to be the church is to literally LOVE all. have to love/ be kind to / that nasty person over there. The dirty homeless person, the one in church that never truly looks dressed right.. Love them too. You know not to judge.  Romans 2:1 

At a healing celebration of God’s love in Zanesville I was shown by God His love for  all of us. The filthy, the clean, the vile, the righteous.  simply love all. When you cross paths with someone and you feel nudge, “help them open that door, wish them a blessed day, say a silent prayer for them” when you become kindness walking through your day, you become the light of God. You get out of the way of self and allow God to shine through you. 

God bless you all

instantaneous healing at the cashier's desk while returning some items... 

 

 

I have spoken already about this healing on this site. The one that occurred in a store when I was returning some t-shirts. 

I walked into the store and heard the cashier coughing. It was a low cough and she was sipping on water frequently. She also had a lozenge in her mouth attempting to still the cough. She called me next to her register. As I walked up she coughed and asked forgiveness then took a sip of water. I asked if she wanted me to pray for her. She immediately lit up and said "yes, please!" I began to pray and I asked the Holy Spirit to slip into her lungs and heal. Immediately I felt the Holy Spirit begin to move to her. My right hand goes up on its own, sometimes to touch someone on the head or just in front of them. I don't know the reason, I just work here, it happens, and is obviously the Holy Spirit.  I was shown how healing moved down her into her lungs. She immediately smiled a huge smile, a childlike huge smile. "You felt it didn't you." I asked, She said "yes! God is good!" She was able to speak clearly. No cough, no pushing to find air to speak.

What I saw was a brilliance cover her. Her countenance changed. Was as if God removed a coating of illness. She had a history of having to be in oxygen tents on and off through life. She said her asthma has been an issue her whole life. I want all of you to know.. God healed her in Jesus name, He healed her! No more coughing.. her voice strong even her presence was enhanced? I cannot think of the right way to describe the change in her when the Holy Spirit healed her.

Please know God is with us every moment! Please know His love for us is amazing! Beyond description as I was shown at the last celebration of God's love! 

Write to me, invite me to your church, invite me to speak at the end of your services, your masses. Invite me to your homes! Call me! It is all free and pure love from the Holy Spirit and always in Jesus name! The three healings does not take long....and the blessings last forever into and beyond God's time and love..

 

May God bless you !!

This explains so clearly the healing ministry. 

This explains so clearly the healing ministry. Taken from the net and explains so much. 

Scripture strongly affirms ministries of spiritual healing, which in recent years have received renewed emphasis throughout Christ's holy Church. The root of the word healing in New Testament Greek, sozo, is the same as that of salvation and wholeness. Spiritual healing is God's work of offering persons balance, harmony, and wholeness of body, mind, spirit, and relationships through confession, forgiveness, and reconciliation. Through such healing, God works to bring about reconciliation between God and humanity, among individuals and communities, within each person, and between humanity and the rest of creation. The New Testament records that Jesus himself healed the estranged and sick and sent out his disciples on ministries of healing. James (5:14–16a) calls us also to pray for and anoint the sick, that they may be healed. 

All healing is of God. The Church's healing ministry in no way detracts from the gifts God gives through medicine and psychotherapy. It is no substitute for either medicine or the proper care of one's health. Rather, it adds to our total resources for wholeness. 

Healing is not magic, but underlying it is the great mystery of God's love. Those who minister spiritual healing are channels of God's love. Although no one can predict what will happen in a given instance, many marvelous healings have taken place. 

God does not promise that we shall be spared suffering but does promise to be with us in our suffering. Trusting that promise, we are enabled to recognize God's sustaining presence in pain, sickness, injury, and estrangement. 

Likewise, God does not promise that we will be cured of all illnesses; and we all must face the inevitability of death. A Service of Healing is not necessarily a service of curing, but it provides an atmosphere in which healing can happen. The greatest healing of all is the reunion or reconciliation of a human being with God. When this happens, physical healing sometimes occurs, mental and emotional balance is often restored, spiritual health is enhanced, and relationships are healed. For the Christian the basic purpose of spiritual healing is to renew and strengthen one's relationship with the living Christ. 

Laying on of hands, and the less formal gesture of holding someone's hand all show the power of touch, which plays a central role in the healings recorded in the New Testament. Jesus often touched others—blessing children, washing feet, healing injuries or disease, and raising people from death. Biblical precedent combines with our natural desire to reach out to persons in need in prompting us to touch gently and lovingly those who ask for healing prayers. Such an act is a tangible expression of the presence of the healing Christ, working in and through those who minister in his name. 

 healing is also for persons grieving after loss of pregnancy, for persons going through divorce, for a person suffering from addiction or substance abuse, for a person with AIDS, for a person with life–threatening illness, and for a person in a coma or unable to communicate.

BECOME AS LITTLE CHILDREN... 

I have pondered this VERSE all of my life. Matthew 18:3, KJV: And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. 

When I was a kid, I went to a Catholic grade school. We went to mass often and most of the time, as a kid I didn't understand much of what was going on. But the repeated, "thou shalt not steal," caused me to pause. I needed my candy and I stole money from my brother and my mother to get it. It was a quarter or sometimes a dollar. When I was a kid that bought a lot of candy.

So, on the playground at lunch during school I asked, "God, I need my candy so maybe hell isn't so bad." I walked a little more and stopped. "Let me feel what hell is like so I can decide." I closed my eyes and instantly felt something I did not like and opened them quickly. "I don't want to go to hell!" I walked some more and talked to God and in all the serious kid talk I could summon, knowing it would be difficult to give up my candy. I asked God another question. "God? I am going to need a ticket to heaven, I do not think I can not be without my candy!" I walked around begging for a ticket to heaven and hoped He gave me one.

A little after that moment with God, I saved up some money. Probably not enough to replace what candy I had stolen. I ran into the store put the money on the counter and said "I owe you this!" And ran home. Not sure why this story came to mind while trying to explain what I feel being, childlike then you will enter the kingdom of heaven.

I heard his word, don't steal, I asked him for help, he answered with a scary feeling. I asked him to help me get to heaven with giving me a ticket. Then I walked the path He wanted and gave back the money. I never stole candy again. Did I get a ticket to heaven? Waiting to see. : )

A child has no worries and if does start to worry talks to parents for help. Then goes through a day with imagination and laughter and talks to God. At least I did and my children did.  

I feel faith, is what is being talked about in this verse. When we have faith or 'rely' on God for all in our life we become like children. For that is all children are, one big bubble of faith.

As soon as worry hits, pray and ask for help. As soon as fear finds, pray ask for help as soon as anything that this life can cause a negative with. Pray ask for help and walk the best you can through your day Loving God and loving people. Have complete faith in our Father. Rely on Him and His love, He is with us always. Drop the worries stop the sinning, walk with love and run in the sun of His love and forgiveness.

 

Matthew 7:7-8  

7 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: 

8 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.

 

God bless you with that wonderful peace from the Holy Spirit

DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE SOUL AND SPIRIT / WE TRULY ARE MADE IN HIS IMAGE/ THE HOLY TRINITY IMAGE! 

Well, well, guess what happened to me last night. I had a thought come to me, "what is the difference between the soul and spirit? Aren't they the same?"

Most of you probably already know, but I tell ya what, I googled and read and read and it still made no sense. I fell asleep with this lack of understanding running through my noggin and when I woke I understood. I dreamt of having a conversation about it all night. I assume with God, my question was being answered. So here I am to tell you once again of the difference. If you go to BENSEL VISION and scroll down to interpretation of that night of God talking to me. I put the difference as I feel I was taught while I slept.

I have a thought, also, on how we are truly made IN GOD'S IMAGE, literally. But first I will explain what I feel to understand as the difference between Soul and Spirit. Now mind you, I am not talking about The Holy Spirit, but I will involve Him also with this. It is really rather cool!

In the vision I had that night, part of it talks about 'God sleeping in my soul yet my spirit is singing'. There it is, the separation of the two. Again, most of you probably already knew this, so you can scroll on past all of this or go to another blog if you wish. We are all born with a soul, the image of God, the bit of energy from Him. But for those that didn't know and it is used in the Bible, here is one, our spirit is separate and has to be grown and is what helps us be able to hear Him and walk with Him through our lives.

Luke 1:46-47 

46 And Mary said, My soul doth magnify the Lord,  47 And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour.

Our souls are the human of us, the part made in God's image. And it is the emotions, love, we glorify God with our souls, but our spirit SPEAKS with the Lord. When we begin reaching for God, prayer, talking to, or have a strong desire to hear Him. Our 'spirit' begins its journey of growth within the soul. The soul is like a channel for our spirit. That is why it is so important to pray constantly or talk with God or think of Him. With each reach, our spirit grows in our souls. It is also called 'spirituality.' Also, it is important so we stay on path and do good and not bad stuff. Can't see it's bad unless you are tuned into His word and His will. Reading the Bible, reaching to understand,  we stay in tune with our spirit that is the communicator with God! Cool, huh? Well it is to me, it makes sense in so many ways. 

The more we pray and speak to God, the more our spirit grows in our soul and the more clearly we can 'hear' Him.

Life is a whole lot easier when you know how and what you are supposed to do and live here. So, as Mary said in Luke 1:46-47, her soul magnifies the Lord and her spirit rejoiced. If you google, there is a lot of help understanding it on the net, but it just didn't make sense until I woke after dreaming of talking about it all night and being shown.

HOW WE TRULY ARE MADE IN HIS IMAGE

This came to me this morning while discussing my dream with Irene Baron. Truly, we are made in His image, in His Holy Trinity image!

Ponder this if you will. God is invisible, so he sent His Son Jesus, who is word made flesh/ God made flesh/ and The Holy Spirit.  I believe WE truly are made in the image of the HOLY TRINITY! God is the 'body', of the Holy Trinity, Jesus is the 'soul', which glorifies God like our 'soul' does, and the Holy Spirit is the 'spirit',. Just like we have our body, soul and spirit.

When God wants us to love Him, "with all your mind, heart, soul, and strength," our minds and heart and strength is 'the body, as God is the body of The Holy Trinity. Jesus, is the 'soul' of The Holy Trinity and The Holy Spirit is the 'spirit,' of the Holy Trinity! Do you see, that literally we are made in His image, the complete of The Holy Trinity is us! Whew that hurt my brain a bit.

I hope it makes sense. If it doesn't no worries! God created us with all the tools to live the life He wants us to live. We will reach for those specific tools when we know to reach. 

Talk to God everyday, The Lord, The Holy Spirit, God! As God showed me, while recording Mary Knew, by Irene Baron, for audio book. Jesus has been given all the power and glory through His sacrifice for us. He gets all the glory. Everything goes through Jesus who glorifies the Father! All has to go through Jesus, which we all know. You can't just pray to God. You have to bring Jesus into every prayer. 

To those that needed to hear this, yay us! To those that knew it already, why didn't you tell me! To those who are wonderfully enjoying the journey through and with love here, yay us again. 

Ask and you shall receive goes for everything. When you feel a need to understand something, start reading the Bible, researching on the net, and trust me, God will make it clear to you and a lot of times IN A DREAM!

He likes dream speak. Our subconscious is much more open than when our mind is desiring cinnamon toast and coffee. God bless all! And thank you for reading this cool moment. Well, it is cool to me!

 

 

THE LEVELS OF SPIRTUAL GROWTH ~ THE FIRST HELLO TO GOD 

INTO THE LEVELS OF SPIRITUAL GROWTH
~The First Hello to God ~ 

THE BEGINNING   

Picture of Mitch Bensel's faceAs I have gone through my life, God has shown me the so many different levels of learning, how to hear Him, and how to do and know what is His will for me. How to know, I should say, He seems so quiet and yet He is always 'talking' to us in a way we learn to hear. But we will never hear Him if we do not begin the conversation.

Praying is talking to God. The simple thought of talking to or asking Him for help or giving Him thanks, is actually from our 'spirit' and is  opening a small line of light or a telephone line for communication and learning between you and Him.

When we reach for God it gives Him a chance to reply with teaching us. God is not intrusive and will never force His will on us. We have free will and choice. When we bring God into our daily moments, talk to Him, "Gosh, God I need help today.." He hears and begins the individual journey and path with us.

Everyone born has an individual journey with God and their own path with Him. My path is not yours or his or theirs. If you are a parent you see each child is different and you, as the parent, also teach each child in a different way to the same end, do we not?

An easy and simple way to see not to judge others, well we shouldn't because we are then condemned by the sin we are judging them of committing (Romans 2:1). But also, not to judge, for you have no idea of their path with God or at what level they are with Him spiritually.

When we first go to school we learn the basics, one plus one is two etc. We are on a simple beginner level in school. This is the same as when we begin our journey with God. We begin with learning His word, even though most, if not all, at first make no sense.

Have you ever wondered why so many things in the Bible make no sense to you? Then on any given day it is clear as a bright sunny day. When we learn 'one plus one is two,' we see the numbers and know the answer. If someone would throw down a calculus or any other advanced math problem, we would see numbers but not understand the problem. For we are still on one plus one equals two level.

As we reach, pray, and talk to God, we grow our spirit to become more familiar with His voice.  We learn or hear Him because we went to school ~ reached for Him ~ then learned, one plus one is two. He can begin to lift us to higher levels in spiritual understanding of Him and His word when WE reach to learn. Wanting to be closer to God will cause Him to help you do just that.

It is up to us to open for Him. Reach with all you can. Sharpen that pencil, eat a good breakfast put into your soul a desire to know Him and learn. I will be talking about the so many different levels and ways God does teach us in PART II : ) 

 

FIRE INSIDE ~ WORDS THAT MITCH LITERALLY BEGAN SPEAKING AFTER BEING AWAKENED 

FIRE INSIDE - Words that came to Mitch while resting...  
www.mitchbensel.com

I was soaking in a hot tub, resting after cycling several miles. I fell asleep but was awakened with these words being spoken. I was saying them, "Nobody told them they  have a fire inside.." .. I got up and wrote them down. and more came to life. We have a fire inside, it is our soul and our love for God! This talks of the journey of life when we are lost in drugs, temptations and life has us by our souls. Then a  realization we wasted life, then finding God, and the ‘fire inside.’The last words of this I feel, felt like was from a place in life when time says God is real. WE all have a fire inside! Never too late!  

 


Nobody told them they had a fire inside.. 

and the wish did slip around in their mind, 

lips of ice told of lies of days gone by.. 


 

I watch the blue drip down my wall as I sit.. in my bathroom stall 

I sprinkle powder and then I know it all.. 

Burning eyes see the cold of heat 

hands feeble try to feel complete.. whispered.. but the power is gone 


 

I watch my feet follow the morning dawn but the shadows only know the torn 

of the ease of tears 

and the watch.. of those who mourn.. 


 

I grab my head as I feel it burst with pain from the very first of the thought.. 

of power now thrown with thirst 

pulling my feet back inside my head 

I float..into oblivion 

...dead.. 

where the mast meets the sail of eternity 


 

the waste of time now the gone of mine 

is this life..I throw against that wall of sublime and the wish.. that moves around in

my mind ......... 


 

somebody tell them they have a fire inside!

not to waste a moment of this place we reside called life.. and live and never hide.. 

lips of ice can be warmed again 

fire released can be used my friend 

..open those feeble hands again and survive!
