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

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.

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!
