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

singing and telling God a story ~ in the tongues language hmmm I may have gone insane  

This morning while in the shower I talked to God. I talk to Him a lot while in the shower. The hot water is wonderful and clears the mind and hands away from the phone and internet scrolling. I began to tell Him a story. I was shown the story while speaking and singing. I will now present to you my first story, told to God for His amusement and how God does what God does. Shows His love.

 

A sunny day in the park a young lad was walking and pondering life. He looked at the cool flowers to his right, just off the path. And the other same coolness flowers to his left. As he walked he talked to God. Asking silly questions and such what he normally does. Boring God most likely but most likely not. He heard some music up ahead of him off the path to the right. He walked closer and heard such beautiful sounds. He remembered he had his harmonica in his pocket and got it out and began to play along with the music. But his mind was for God to hear, not only his harmonica playing but he told God, "all the music is for you!" as he walked closer to the group playing their music. So beautifully played next to flowers and tall grasses. He looked up to the sky while playing along with them with his harmonica. He saw a wisp of white floating toward the music. He began to see several of these images of white light gather around behind the group playing their instruments. They seemed oblivious and he had some difficult for a bit playing his harmonica. He looked up and around the group and was surrounded by angels! He couldn't believe his eyes! He smiled while playing the harmonica which caused him to miss some notes. Can't smile and play. He listened to the absolute most beautiful sounds of angels singing and the group playing all in an indescribable flow. 

He stepped back and sat on a concrete bench. He was overwhelmed and smiled and pointed to the heavens, "this is for you God!" The music played and the notes began to turn the clock of time. Time hurriedly removed him from the moment. He was an adult. He fell away from the fantasy. There was still a small bit of singing from the angels but the people were gone. He was sad and went to the park on his lunch to try to get rid of worry and pain from his life. This man did not have an easy life, he never had an easy life. But this man loved God since a wee boy and took him through his life with him. Even when intense pain from lost love or abuses in life, those kind that rip a heart out of people. Yes, not easy but when it got too loud, drowning out his Lord he went to the park. To the place he went as a child so long ago. The path where he lifted his harmonica out of his pocket and played with the angels and a simple group of people, for God. The path where he was now, sitting on a concrete bench oh so very sad.

The angelic sounds began to increase and he swayed with the glorious sounds. God always did have a way of letting him know he wasn't alone. But life has to be lived and life is hard and he learned, oh so long ago, that long ago time when he was so very small, that God was always with him. God was always holding him when he cried. Although at times he would cry, "where are you?". The 'where are you moments' were the worst. 

The singing increased and light from the sounds began to filter through him. He looked up and saw white light, small at first then growing larger and larger and... The brightest light ever, stood in front of the smaller lights. He smiled and sang in that cool language of tongues along with the angels. Suddenly, the brightest light showed him to be still. The song got louder and oh so angelically beautiful. The large giant light, which he knew was Jesus said, "this song is for you my child." The sounds of the angels the lifting of light all around was beyond. He broke into tears, he sobbed and got on his knees, "thank you Lord, thank you for your love!"

To this day whenever anyone walks down that path there is a magical music sound from the winds the leaves on the trees and even from the flowers as they lean toward all and give a flower smile followed with God's smile.

The.. end?

 

I have surely gone insane for today I told this story to the Lord.. to God to the Holy Spirit. I was shown how God was singing with His angels for me! And I broke into tears       those tears that only the Holy Spirit and God's love can create. Sobbing, thankful tears.

 

Tell God a story today all the heavens could use one. Whisper a nod to Jesus to maybe skip along the sidewalk with Him. Gather angels around and sing to God with them.  

 

Surprise God with your complete love. For He surely completely .. loves.. us

 

Amen..!!

 

 

 

 

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 we are praying in Spirit I was shown wisps of light God is a Spirit John 4:24 

 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.  John 4:24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.

 

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. 

 

John 4 : 24 KJV

 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.

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. 

JOHN 19: 26-27 KJV WHY I THINK JESUS CALLED HIS MOTHER "WOMAN" WHILE AT THE CANA WEDDING AND ON THE CROSS 

 

King James Version 

 

Two times Jesus called His mother Mary, 'woman' in the bible.

John 2:1-11 

King James Version 

2 And the third day there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee; and the mother of Jesus was there: 

2 And both Jesus was called, and his disciples, to the marriage. 

3 And when they wanted wine, the mother of Jesus saith unto him, They have no wine. 

4 Jesus saith unto her, Woman, what have I to do with thee? mine hour is not yet come.

John 19:26 When Jesus therefore saw his mother, and the disciple standing by, whom he loved, he saith unto his mother, Woman, behold thy son! 

27 Then saith he to the disciple, Behold thy mother! And from that hour that disciple took her unto his own home.

Happy Easter to all! He is risen and yay for us! It came to me today, on Easter Sunday 2022. I have had this on my mind for a week or so. This is purely speculation but makes sense to me.

The Cana Wedding: As Jesus says to Mary after she asks Him to help with the wine, John 2: 4 Jesus saith unto her, Woman, what have I to do with thee? mine hour is not yet come.  I feel this is Jesus doing Gods work, He was to do miracles and show He was truly the Son of God when 'His time had come." When He would become the Son of God to all on earth. Yes, he was always the Son of God even as a child, even when first born.. but whenever He does such miracles or speaks of how we should be to get to the kingdom of God she is not His mother anymore she is woman, like all women on earth. He is Gods word made flesh. There is a fine line here, I feel, and He is showing that fine line by calling His mother, 'woman' while doing His Father's work.

He only called her that twice in the whole bible and each time was when He was actively doing His Father's work or a miraculous moment like turning the water to wine. Actively 'showing' He had powers above all on earth. Calling His mother 'woman,' separated her from Him as His mother to show He was doing it for all of mankind, not just His family on earth. I.E. his mother or siblings. If carrying water to her, would be 'mother'. If walking with, living with all of His life before His time had come, she was 'mother.'  But when walking His time to save all and show all He is the Son of God, the Savior and she is shown to be part of all on earth and is called, 'woman' not any different from any human on earth.  The same on the cross in excruciating pain. I do not feel this is a moment when He shows all that He wants people to take care of His mother. He was showing once more that Mary is of the earth. When Jesus's time came to do what He came down to earth to do, she was a person like all on the earth and from the earth. Separating with that fine line. Yes, she was His mother by immaculate conception and was His mother on earth and called such before His time came to become not the son of Mary but the Son of God. His transition into the pure spiritual world with God, and as God, word made flesh. And doing this sacrifice for all of mankind putting her into that place. She is not above any other woman on earth, she is 'woman' not mother.  The fine line, the separation had to be shown and spoken to the world.

While He was on earth as a human, God's word in flesh, He spoke that all alive were His brothers and sisters and mother. 

Matthew 12:46-50   KJV. Specifically this ~ 48 But he answered and said unto him that told him, Who is my mother? and who are my brethren?   49 And he stretched forth his hand toward his disciples, and said, Behold my mother and my brethren! 

This is what I feel was happenin Showing the transition from God in flesh to God as the Holy Trinity, God, Jesus, and Holy Spirit. For Jesus is God and God is the Holy Trinity. Let's drop it down a notch if that sounds too insane. Jesus becomes spirit in whole, no longer of the world but with God in complete union and communion with Spirit, flesh and mind. He is Word made flesh and He is alive still, in flesh, but also spirit, mind and soul. And He is showing all that Mary, while Jesus is doing what He came here to do, is a woman like all other women on earth. She is not any better or worse than anyone she is like all of us He died to save. From the earth, of the earth.

Ponder and pray on it. I could be just insane and off my noggin but why would He have called her woman if it didn't mean something profound? All words Jesus spoke and are written have a meaning and a lesson. By calling Mary not mother but woman, tells me the lesson that she is a woman like all others. She gave birth to Him so that He could become flesh as man is made flesh. He had to live as man, word made flesh and to do that needed a mother to give birth to Him.  She was His mother. But when doing God's work the fine line is shown that she is  human and  a woman like all other women on earth and His sacrifice is for her also as a 'woman.' A thought?      

Thank you for reading and being on this journey with me for God. We are all so truly blessed, even if we have horrendous adversities God's will be done. Even Jesus asked to possibly not have to do this suffering. "nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt." 

Matthew 26: 39 KJV 

“And he went a little further, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt.”

 

Worry not on life. Keep reaching to know and learn all the levels. God is showing all of us. He is a great teacher and Father and He loves us so much that He gave His only son for us to be forgiven and our souls to live and not die.

God bless all.   .. even you, the one over there

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!

This explains so clearly the healing ministry. 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

EVEN WITH FAITH.. an audio I was nudged to do ten years ago.. this is the recording  

Even With Faith 

My CD Walk With Me~ Walk With Me CD ~was produced in 2012. I had a baby voice and they messed up the artwork for the cover and took half off the physical CD's I purchased. Random CD fact. I have uploaded most of the tracks to my you tube, Mitch Bensel You Tube, what is on it I was nudged to say and record. Even the Son of God, Jesus, had a difficult time here.

Do not give up nor give in to doubts or times of being down. I still have times when God is just so quiet. Turn to Him immediately and just ask for help. He truly is with us every moment of our existence. We cannot even take a breath without His allowing it. But there are times that 'even with faith' we become afraid or depressed or just downright worried about things.

 

May God bless you with peace from the comforter, The Holy Spirit.

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!

 

 

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!
