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!
