“He (God) does hurt greatly. I found out some years ago after laughing at a reenactment on a TV documentary of David and Goliath.. where David killed Goliath with a stone/slingshot. The actor who portrayed Goliath looked silly as he fell to the ground, and I jeered and laughed at him.. When suddenly the Holy Spirit convicted me and I heard Him speak to me (without words) He said, “you find this funny .. the death of this man and enemy of Israel? I find it NOT funny.. I wanted that he would have opened his heart to me.. his Creator., as well as his people, but he continued to harden his heart., to the point that I had no choice but to end his life .. or he would have proceeded to end the life of my people, Isreal . It did not please me to end his life”.
Wow, was I ever convicted after hearing that and I never thought the same again of the Lord’s enemies.. We (even we Christians) truly don’t think the way our God thinks.

It is amazing how when you are not expecting anything, there Is God…that is what happened when I was looking through the selections of videos I have from You Tube – and I just had tears as I felt The Father so close..and I felt His love so sweet..and that is for us all. It is not often this happens +
“I had read how one was given the advice to check in with the Lord Jesus each hour and ask His advice on ‘how’ they were doing – so I asked Him this am at 11:09 – and the following went through me..:
I drifted back to sleep (this was around 5:00 am) and waking back up again, I heard our Lord again say to me, “Have Your way with Me, this Day” and I knew this is what He wanted me to pray.. that He would have His way with Me, and when He said, “this Day”, He meant not only “day” as in this day (Sunday) but also the “day” of my life that He has allotted me.
Early this morning before awaking, I heard our Lord speak deep within my heart. I know it was Him because even though He was using my own thoughts, the words spoken were being spoken TO me, and not my own mind thinking them up.
He even caught me off guard, as I usually don’t hear Him speak more than one or two words on certain occasions. My mind is always so active that I often hear only my own thoughts, and am not internally quiet enough to hear Him alone.
Well this morning, He spoke the following message to me: “Rise above these earthly matters and concerns. Rise above– Love!”
I laid there thinking on what I heard Him say, and then wondered if He was referring to all the many worries and concerns I have over things to happen in my future.. financial concerns I have., health concerns…

I just wanted to share how our Lord truly condescends and bends over backwards even for those who mock and despise Him in this present day and age. On my Youtube channel, I have a video titled, ‘How I know God Answer’s Prayer” where I shared about how after I had asked God to provide me a particular out of print book of that exact title, seven days later, He arranged for someone to give it to me without my having let anyone know I was searching for it. I have a video on this experience and for some reason it always seems to attract a lot of the agnostic and atheist folks that love to spam Christian videos encouraging people to have more faith in God. I even have 5 dislikes on this video so far, also.
Well this afternoon about three atheist or agnostic folks posted sarcastic comments on that video, and normally I just ignore them, but this time I felt the Lord wanted me to ask Him to provide a reply for them. I prayed then blindly opened to His recorded words in the journal, “He and I”, and got goosebumps as my eyes fell right on the exact reply He wanted me to give these people challenging His existence and labeling all Christians as “idiots”.
That’s all our Lord needed to reply.. just two words- “I’m here”. Even that answer was not enough to get through to the particular person the Lord had me reply to., but I am praying for him that one day he will be willing to open his heart and will no longer reject God’ grace to receive faith… as faith is actually a gift from God and not something we can manufacture through human reasoning.
It just goes to show us , though, how God speaks to all of us, no matter how undeserving we are, but not all of us always tune in to actually listen to Him. Our Lord reminded me that I was the same way as well, and so there is hope for the least of us. “He is here” and you can take His word on that!
