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

Shade of sin blocks the Holy Spirit's light in our life 

I was going to fix a screen, one of the panels had separated from the other panel. I walked to my drawer of tools where I work on crosses and stood there a moment. I forgot what I was going to do.. I looked in the drawer and thought,, “what was I going to do?” I stayed there and looked at all my tools, I wasn’t currently working on a cross, so it wasn’t that.. then I glanced around and saw nails on a shelf. “I remember, I was going to fix that screen and needed my hammer!”  

Going to the bible like me going to my drawer of tools, but forgetting what I was looking for. We read not knowing When God will let us ‘see’ or ‘hear’ what we need to learn.  While reading the bible, Like me going to my tools, looking in the drawer but forgetting why I was there. I knew the ‘tool’ was in that drawer, but forgot why. The bible is the ‘tool’ for us to learn what is a sin and to live in His word.

When we open the bible, we truly do not know what God will show us. Then, we read scripture which we learn and can now walk in His light through our day. We have the ‘tool’ /His word/ to impart in the way needed, that word of God through life gently with love.

Keep thinking about your actions. Keep questioning those actions, where the Holy Spirit is saying “whoa.. buddy.. don’t do that” with a feeling of.. not good.

When we get closer to the Lord, understanding His will He imparts onto us the understanding to allow the Holy Spirit to work through us.  We begin to feel the slightest dark shade from a sin.. could have been a thought of judgment of someone or wishing something not good on someone.  

The CLOSER you get to the Lord and your path of walking and working for Him.. what was the subtle sin you didnt know or feel it was wrong.. becomes a literal feeling of the loss of light in your soul.. there is a tangible palpable feeling of Gods Presence with the Holy Spirit in all .. but the more you learn and the less you sin.. the stronger the light flows through you.

 That is the peace of the Lord.. the peace from the Holy Spirit where doesnt matter what is happening in your world, He will take you through it without fear, pain or sadness.  When one sins at that level the lack of brilliance is shown there is a shade to the feeling of God within you.  The Holy Spirit is still His bright self.. but the sin has put a black umbrella  up blocking light to a part of your soul…

Brothers and sisters,, I have lived a life of many sins.. after some not good things happened to me ..I went crazy in the world grabbing any pleasure I could. I didn’t care how vile it was, I was reaching for love, for pleasure to feel good to cover my pain from life.

Through my broken soul and heart, I reached for God. with each thought and reach He answered. Life was not easier, yet. I am a healing minister for God now. Always was, prayed and knew miracles happened but I was still walking through not a good place and away from God. Walking the line, being a hypocrite.. but I had to get to that point before I could even learn that is what I was doing.

We learn in seasons and levels through this physical flesh and life. When we always try to learn His way. When we read the bible.. walk the best we can.. He becomes louder in our whole existence.     WE still HAVE free will.. and the enemy is always whispering.. unless and until you rebuke and turn to God.. we are blessed we have 3 in one…..shows how intricately involved God is with us.. there is the comforter…always with us . the holy spirit.. there is Jesus, word in flesh who became the filth of life and allowed the devil to rip Him apart and mock him.. we have the Father.. who loves us so much     He gave Jesus. His only 

Son      so we..      only… so we wouldn’t be damned forever.

Hell must be pretty real, and very bad for the Father, who allows free will, sent Jesus to be the sacrifice for us. God the Father knows what it takes to grow spirit, to clean soul and spirit to be with Him. We cannot understand or fathom the reasonings of a sacrifice to be made..   or suffering here    why? Why, because the Father knows how to grow the spirit to be able to have the energy levels of love and purity to be in heaven and walk with Him.  

There are different levels of energy with every action. Love’s energy is beyond different from anger. hatred, vile, just plain evil actions.. that energy cannot exist in heaven.  The waves cannot exist in heaven.

So, trust the Father, His Son Jesus and the Holy Spirit the comforter indwelling in all of us. And step up into a light that has energy of forever love  and step away from that energy of evil where the vibrations of such in your soul, will keep you from being in heaven. 

 

Listen to the teacher! listen to the Father.. listen to His son! Jesus literally bled and suffered on a tree to save us………. has to be serious and scary

 

God bless you with His presence

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! 


 

You sinned again, now what? 

We walk the best we can in God's glory. We read the bible, we pray for people, we give our lives to God, to Jesus to the Holy Spirit, then we sin.  Is a moment of an old path, familiar and vile but we rationalize it is ok, we know God loves us and it cant be that bad. But, every sin is bad. The small one of lying to the horrible one of murder. Oh, not the murder of flesh, but the assassination of their integrity and their reputation.

 

God abhors bearing false witness against another, it is considered murder. But Mitch, c'mon he is just a bad guy and gossips also. A sin, any sin is massive in the eyes of our Lord. Jesus had to suffer more than we can ever understand, so we can be forgiven, again and again for sinning.

 

I do not care how close or far away from God you are, a sin hits the soul with a vile black drop. Each sin that occurs and we do not ask forgiveness we do not repent/ change mind/ and denounce/ don'd do it anymore, it begins a huge eclipse of God's vision upon us. God sees all the evil and the good, Proverbs 15;3. but He will not ‘hear’ us. John 9:31. Now we know that God heareth not sinners: but if any man be a worshipper of God, and doeth his will, him he heareth.

So when we sin again, get to a quiet place and talk with God. Let Him see you want to stop, we want to be what He needs, we want His love and light to shine on all we are around.

 

Is easy to fail, and is easy to ask forgiveness. When we stop asking and trying not to sin, is when our souls are doomed to a forever suffering in hell. Matthew 25;41  Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels

 

God bless you

Asking the Holy Spirit to bless the crosses when purchased 

I just finished making 4 pocket driftwood crosses for an order. While making the driftwood crosses i am shown how to make them, then as i carve and sand on them am shown Jesus getting the lashes and being taunted.  When I finish the cross for an order just before I mail them, I ask God to bless them.

I am shown different things, depending on what the home needs or person needs. Today as I asked God to bless one, I felt the light of the Holy Spirit move through me as He showed me where on the man needed healing. I was shown two places where the light flowed to and through him. Was also made aware of depression and a deep sadness.

My faith and gift from the Holy Spirit and the faith of the person ordering the cross, creates the path for the Holy Spirit to heal. I send the cross tomorrow and will wait and see what the person says about it when they receive it. Usually there is an emotinoal moment, the beauty of the presence of the Holy Spirit always causes amazing tears of peace and a feeling of love.

 

 

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

Lighting struck a white pine.. the crosses I am making from that wood touched by God's power! 

 

 

 

Recently a friend's white pine tree was hit by lightning. It wasn't a normal hit, according to four tree removal experts. They had never seen a tree split down the middle like that almost all the way to the base of the tree. The lightning, at 50 thousand degrees turned the sap into steam and the tree exploded in half. White pine trees are very full of sap and takes years for them to sit and dry enough for good firewood. They stated it was bone dry. The parts that the lightning hit, bone dry.

I collected some of this wood and planned on making a lot of the Bensel Crosses for walls from it.  Feeling it was so cool that God touched it with His power. But what is happening is not to make all of it wall crosses but to make some pocket crosses and clergy or wearable crosses also.

This wood needs to be held or worn. The blessings from this lightning touched wood. Wood that God showed His presence upon, will be amazing and phenomenal. Will also be making small ones for your pet! The cross is a symbol of God's love for us. And when someone sees a cross they think of Jesus! Your pet could use the blessings also. : )

As I make them I also feel and am shown the blessings upon them. The feeling, the tangible expression of the Holy Spirit is with me as I form these wee crosses. When held, they feel amazing, calmness fills and a peace that can only come from the Holy Spirit finds the soul.

Let's think about this for a moment, Lighting and God.  Lightning is used all through the bible as God announces His majestic presence for all to see ~~through and with lightning!

On the morning of the third day there was thunder and lightning, with a thick cloud over the mountain, and a very loud trumpet blast. Everyone in the camp trembled. 

Exodus 19:16

Lightning symbolizes several different things in the Bible. It can signify God’s mighty presence – in a literal and / or poetic sense – that causes all people to tremble in reverence

Psalm 77:18). It also means God’s wrathful judgment against His enemies (Psalm 144:6; Psalm 18:14). Satan also fell “like lightning from heaven” (Luke 10:18), showing God’s swift decree against him. Lightning will also be a sudden sign of Jesus’ second coming, seen by all (Matthew 24:27).

God is perfect love and goodness; our heavenly Father who gives us the treasures of His mercy and grace. 

However, at the same time, we must also remember that God is the righteous judge of all things (Psalm 7:11; Psalm 50:6). He is the supreme ruler over everything! 

Thus, there are indeed Biblical moments where God uses lightning – literal and / or symbolic – as a sign of His wrath. In these instances, lightning is often described as weapons that God uses against His enemies. 

Out of the brightness of His presence bolts of lightning blazed forth. The Lord thundered from heaven; the voice of the Most High resounded. He shot His arrows and scattered the enemy, with great bolts of lightning He routed them. 

2 Samuel 22:13-15 

Send forth lightning and scatter the enemy; shoot Your arrows and rout them. 

Psalm 144:6 

And you, son of man, prophesy and say, ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says about the Ammonites and their insults: “‘A sword, a sword, drawn for the slaughter, polished to consume and to flash like lightning! 

Ezekiel 21:28 

lightning in the Bible not only means God’s presence, but can also reflect His firm judgment against those who willfully rebel against His kingdom.

lightning is used to convey God’s swift, powerful, and visible judgment against Satan’s rebellion in heaven. In addition, Jesus – in declaring his witnessing of Satan’s fall – is also revealing his divine pre-existence outside of his time on earth. 

 lightning in the Bible often means God’s judgment – most famously of all, His decree against Lucifer.

Jesus simply replies “I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven” (Luke 10:18)

There are various explanations as to why Jesus used this exact phrasing. 

However, in this context, lightning is used to convey God’s swift, powerful, and visible judgment against Satan’s rebellion in heaven. In addition, Jesus – in declaring his witnessing of Satan’s fall – is also revealing his divine pre-existence outside of his time on earth. 

For as lightning that comes from the east is visible even in the west, so will be the coming of the Son of Man. 

Matthew 24:27 

 God uses the quality of lightning to indicate the suddenness of Jesus’ impending return. Of course, there will be warning signs, like how forming thunderstorms can be observed. However, it will still happen at an unexpected moment, just as lightning strikes out of nowhere. 

This reminds us to always stand firm in our faith. For “not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father” (Matthew 24:36) knows when and how Jesus will come. 

But one thing is for certain. It will happen as quick as lightning, seen by everyone – as God says it will!  

Job 37:4 

After it his voice roars; he thunders with his majestic voice, and he does not restrain the lightnings when his voice is heard.

Google for yourself how many times Lightning is used in the bible and how it is always connected to the presence of or wrath from God. I make driftwood crosses and always ask God to bless them with what the home needs. I am shown the home where it will be, I am shown what the family needs. Sometimes I am shown a person looking at the cross and see the miracle of the Holy Spirit calming them and helping them with the prayer they asked as they looked upon the driftwood cross.

I am a healer for God, I work for the Big Guy, He works through me.. and I tell ya this lightning wood is special. God's presented it to my soul to create crosses that people can hold. They can feel where God touched it! Lightning is God's presence, yes I am repeating myself. And this tree was hit like no other that had been witnessed by at least 4 tree removal experts. And, it hit the tree of Irene Baron's house, who has witnessed many miracles through healings and also has been healed  and is my close friend. It HIT her tree so I could make these pocket crosses for people to feel the presence/ that word again/ the PRESENCE of God, in a tangible way. We feel the Holy Spirit, hold it as we walk through our day. Not only a  reminder of His love I feel there will be healings and spirit awakening in all that order one with faith in our Lord. 

I know I have to make a lot of them. Is a constant gentle urge and I see piles of pocket crosses and clergy crosses and crosses from this wood being worn around the necks of not only people but their pets! I have a couple that will be wall crosses but the rest will be small. This symbol of God's love, the cross, causes us to think of Him. With this lightning wood doubly blessed by the literal TOUCH from God in the tangible way of lightning, many will feel such peace through their day.

I will leave you with this thought. The world is going through a turning point where a chasm is forming between right and wrong. God is showing His presence more than ever. Many many many.. are turning to and reaching for God. The same amount are turning away for the world things of greed and pleasure and to hurt others. God answers our prayers, He does not lie

Matthew 7:7-8 

King James Version 

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.

All believers are keeping God in front of all they do, praying, reaching to let others see and feel His love His peace. Turmoil is occurring, families being separated.  I feel and am shown these simple pieces of wood from a tree God touched, will help all with the feeling of His presence and to be closer to Him and also am shown healings will occur. God's will, God's timing always. When we reach with faith HE answers.

God split that tree with His presence, His lightning which represents HIM! And to repeat myself.. none of the four tree removal experts had seen a tree split like that and the wood left bone dry. Why dry? So I can make pocket cross and crosses for people to have near them filled with the Holy Spirit tangibly expressed by God's Lightning strike in a way never seen.

I will be posting them on this site but please reach out to me for the size you wish and I will make it so. I will ask God to bless it even more and boy I tell ya, as I have made the few the Holy Spirit is there with love that only God can give.

 

God bless all that read this

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 !!

Why do I still hurt? The reasoning behind the second blessing of The Three Healings.. 'relief from pain' 

Hello and blessings to all!!!

During every healing event I do, there will be the 'three healings.' This started over 10 years ago while I was recording and developing the Walk With Me CD that is available on the net digitally. I am also uploading all the audio's to my you tube Mitch Bensel You tube. In that CD were different lessons and conversations on, abuse, why blame God, breaking up, even with faith etc...Part of that was that He wanted me to do a three healing audio. At the time I was lost in how that could happen? For all the times before when healing occurred it was quiet with the patient, between God them and me. I would be nudged to send a prayer and then shown the light of the Holy Spirit move into them to where the injury was. Or on the net, when I did my first attempt at long distance healing, and just touched the screen name and saw the light once more go to injured areas in a shape of a human. That was the artist that was cured by God and was able to paint again. She sent me a gift of one of her paintings with a thank you for the healing. So... I remember praying and talking to God, "How am I supposed to pray for someone I cannot see? I do not know what they need? I know HE Does the healing but I felt I had to at least get it going that way? The knowing that came to me.. which is how I hear God and maybe all do, I have no idea. But I just 'knew' how to do it He would show me people and injuries and calamities and then I would see the light moving through as I spoke. God is so cool! 

The First is that peace that only  The Holy Spirit  can give us. The comforter is rightfully named for we feel comforted, at peace, calm. With said peace we can then hear Him better and also make it through a horrible moment, day, life! The second is a relief from pain.. Now comes the questions from those that remain in pain after their friend or spouse were healed while they stood or sat right next to them during a healing moment. "Why do I still hurt?"

2 Corinthians 12:7-10 says it all!

And lest I should be exalted above measure through the abundance of the revelations, there was given to me a thorn in the flesh, the messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I should be exalted above measure. For this thing I besought the Lord thrice, that it might depart from me. And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness." Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.

whenever I type 'little ones' that is God talking just saying.. not that He is not always helping me say what is said.. but yea.. this came from the big guy!

Heed not doubt little ones when you hurt or are constantly battling making it through a day without some kind of affliction ..for God is with you every moment and if God knows, then is His will and with His will strength will find and calm will hold you through every storm.. giving strength to what you felt was a weakness by showing you that GOD'S strength is made perfect in YOUR weakness...      

 

  

Visited a nursing home while in Zanesville Ohio ..  

 

I was given the honor to walk through a nursing home while visiting Zanesville Ohio. What I was shown is that God already has all that are in nursing homes or assisted care living homes. I listen to see where His light will go but was told in a way of 'knowing' that God is already deeply with each in the facility. I was also shown He was with the staff. I guess helping them have compassion and to heal the way they can by showing said compassion.

I walked past rooms and was pulled, told, to go into one. I asked the lady letting us walk through if I could go into the room. She introduced me to the people in the room. I was already in the way of the Holy Spirit so memory is slight but for the wonderful feeling of love and liquid peace that literally lifts your own spirit.

There were four elderly ladies and one in bed. The one in bed had her eyes closed. I walked toward her and sat near here. I asked if I could pray for her. She moved her head lightly with a yes answer. I asked if I could put my hand on her shoulder, she again nodded slightly. I felt God so close and her love for God fell out of her so easily into the room. It is a feeling of being lifted and in a gentle place of, like. liquid? I prayed for her to feel His love and heal if that is what was needed. Other words were said but again, I do not remember all that is said for it is the Holy Spirit. I know it was also for the ladies in the room visiting her. The peace given by the Holy Spirit removes all worries and is so profoundly beautiful. 

Please do not worry about your loved ones in nursing homes or assisted living homes. God is fully involved with them with His amazing and beautiful love.

 

blessings to all that take time to read these moments with the Holy Spirit.

What I felt on the other side of those miracle events of healing on May 22 at Coburn United Methodist Church  

On May 22, 2022, I was at Coburn United Methodist Church in Zanesville Ohio to do a celebration of God's love healing event. I am of course just the vessel or conduit for God's Holy Spirit to move through and do healing. I just have to get out of His way. On this night I felt so many things and as always a deep sincere love for all that are present. I know it is God's love for all of us I feel. When I asked all to send a prayer to anyone they wish during the 4th healing moment that God wanted to do. I saw light shoot out of the doors.. just fly from everyone back through and out of the doors! It was so beautiful. Because of all that attended, their faith by just walking in and being there, God was working through all! I.. felt His love for all  I always feel the beauty and wonderful liquid peace of the Holy Spirit! I know He has let me know that is, ALL that came to that healing will have a miracle or be blessed in a profound way. Which to me is a miracle of God's love. 

Hands on healings are interesting with profound depths shown. I am shown where The Holy Spirit is moving or what they need. I tend to start to sweat the more the Holy Spirit works through me. This event had many if not all come up for a hands on healing. Gosh, God's love is so strong. I cannot explain the love that I FEEL for total strangers! God's love is like thick air surrounding and holding all without judgement. The contrast of simple humans, plain just living through their day with their problems. He cares not the clothes we wear or the wealth in our pockets. Mix that with His love! Wow is all I can say. The love He showed me and let me feel was the most beautiful moment I have ever felt in my life. Is why I said in that moment "I love everyone here." That was the Holy Spirit! His love encompassed the room! Enveloped all there.  I tell you what, it is amazing! !

I get the best blessings out of doing these, with all faith I tell ya, I am not doing anything but getting out of God's way! But I get the blessings of feeling His presence, His love! His love is overwhelming for us! A liquid peace and sometimes severe goosebumps. I do not remember all of what I said, because I AM NOT saying it, the Holy Spirit is! I had to ask the videographer "How did I do? I can't remember much!" No matter how many times you plan on what you will say the Holy Spirit says, "nah, lets say this." and away the miracles fly.

 

I have no idea why I was picked to do this.. I am nothing but I do love God and have given my life to Him!

Thank you to all that came. YOU will be blessed beyond time.

A video was done of the event and when completed will be posted. Watch it! for all that do will be blessed in some way.

 

Blessings always! He is with us!

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!
