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

When we pray in faith our prayers become wisps of light taken to God/ What I was shown 

 Mitch Bensel  on 2022-09-25 04:35 

I am going to explain a miracle shown me I  was shown by the Holy Spirit. I feel the reasoning is a way for us to see the importance to truly pray with faith. Not just lip service. If we pray casually asking for help here or there, even being specific God does not hear it. It doesn’t touch the ears of the Holy Spirit. Here is what I was shown when I visited Zanesville at a bible study. 

I attended a bible study in Zanesville Ohio on Wednesday,  September 21st, 2022 that was taught by Pastor Anthony Thomas. Before beginning the study, the pastor asked those present if they had any prayer requests. As a spiritual healer for the Lord, I am used to people giving me their prayer requests. I automatically lowered my head closed my eyes, and began to pray with each request. 

Normally, when I am asked for or pray for healing,  the Holy Spirit shows me with light where someone is hurt, or ill, or if they need other help. But, I wasn't being asked to pray for them. People were giving the pastor their prayer requests for all of us to pray for. 

As the first person spoke her needed prayer, instead of me being shown the 

Holy Spirit's light moving to the person they were praying for, I was shown small wisps of light moving from the person asking for the prayer. With each word she spoke became small wisps of light rose toward Pastor then up. They moved not in straight lines, but in short curving beautiful waves. So very light and beautiful. The lady was not only telling what her prayer need was, she was saying it from her heart, literally already saying the prayer. I was being shown how our prayer words move as light  to God. 

The next person told the prayer they needed for someone. I was not shown the wisps of light.  This person was not praying yet. They were just telling the Pastor the prayer needed for all of us to pray. She just 'said' what prayer was needed and wasn't in spirit gear, per say. So, The Holy Spirit showed me  the healing light was already moving to the person needing it. That person was in a hospital bed. The way healing works when He works through me. 

I was shown a couple more like that, where healing came from the Holy Spirit from and through me like He does. Which means they were just telling the Pastor the prayers needed and not in spirit yet to pray and I was sending healing the way I do.

Then, with the last person asking for prayer, I was shown the wavy lights again with each word they spoke rising toward the Pastor then upward over his head. I was excited and realized and literally said in my mind while being shown the lights, “wow, our words become light, our words are literally taken to God in the form of light!” 

I was shown that when we pray with faith each word is heard by God in the light of the Holy Spirit. Every word said with faith is heard and when heard because it came from our stillness and love and faith in God, literally by the Holy Spirit as the light the Holy Spirit is. 

Matthew 7:7-12 

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. 

When Pastor Anthony led us in the group prayer for all the requests, I FELT  and was shown a liquid  presence of The Holy Spirit. A pressure covered the room. I was given a KNOWING that God was there. No lights or wisps, a knowing all the prayers that day God was present. Difficult to explain surrounded by the presence of God, a liquid presence.  When the group prayed  God showed me He was literally present in a tangible way of pressure, no other way to describe it. And oh, such a feeling of peace.  Matthew 18:20 - For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.

The final showing of His very presence is scripture based!.  So, different levels of action occur when we pray. One level are the words brought to God through the Holy Spirit. Since I was present at the Bible study He used the gift given to me to send healing to others to show me a different level of His answering prayers. The final level of prayer shows When a group prays God is truly IN THE MIDST OF THEM/ US :) It was so beautiful I have no words.  

Take from this at least one thing. God waits for us to ask in faith what we need. It is all through the Bible to ask with faith and I tell ya what His love surrounds when a group prayer is happening. No need for wisps, or being shown light. God, is present! Matthew 18:20 The tangible presence of God!

Philippians 4:6-7 – Don't be anxious, Pray with Faith. Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. 

Be specific, Each part of your need is being communicated in a language you know, English, French, German etc. The words complete a sentence and a prayer. When we pray with faith God hears and I feel what I was shown is WHY He hears because when said in faith His Holy Spirit grasps our words because they are from our soul, our hearts and that is where God is. And when a group prays, oh my! He truly is amidst all!

 

King James Version  

BE SPECIFIC

Matthew 20:30-34 

30 And, behold, two blind men sitting by the way side, when they heard that Jesus passed by, cried out, saying, Have mercy on us, O Lord, thou son of David.  

31 And the multitude rebuked them, because they should hold their peace: but they cried the more, saying, Have mercy on us, O Lord, thou son of David.  

32 And Jesus stood still, and called them, and said, What will ye that I shall do unto you?  

33 They say unto him, Lord, that our eyes may be opened.  

34 So Jesus had compassion on them, and touched their eyes: and immediately their eyes received sight, and they followed him. 

 

Matthew 7:7-12 

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. 

5:15  

King James Version  

15 And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him. 

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!
