About Mike From Church
This is the main introduction and topic on the first page of my web site. It covers topics also of church vs.synagogue; daily exhortation; fellowship

It's All About You Lord
This page covers the topics of knowing God, His voice, the christian conscience; the Spirit within; and the need not that any man should teach you.

We Can All Know Him
This section covers many topics: how to find God; what to expect; what was prophesied; etc.. It will also introduce and lead up to my next section about the math experiences in everyone's life.

Doing The Math
This is the section on the main page that introduces my saying "do the math".

More About "Doing" The Math
This section explains God's math in much more detail. It also attempts to teach how to see the math in our testimony as well as the reason for it all.
  Doing The Math: Multiple Independent and Dependent Compound Event Probability

More About Doing The Math - Multiple Independent and Dependent Compound Event Probability

These are the first three initial testimonies out of many, that I am providing as examples of the math of God as seen in my life.

The reason for starting with these three selected testimonies is because they not only happen to have a fair amount of math involved in them, but all three are recent (happening within the last few months).

I have listened to preachers in the past that preached messages about "old testimonies" and what a "sin" it was to share your "old testimony", instead of looking for or seeking a new "fresh testimony". While I am sure that there is a "good message" somewhere in there for someone else, this message does not bear witness to my spirit at all. I have MANY testimonies that are up to and over 30 years old, but this does not stop me from telling them. We should NEVER forget anything (not even one thing) that God has done for us. We should never withhold a testimony of the Lord no mater how old it is. This is witnessed and proven by patriarchal testimony that was written directly for us and then passed down through our ages. However as it is said, if we do not have (or pay attention to) the testimony in our lives, we should examine ourselves whether we be "in the faith" (II Corinthians 13:5).

Many thousands of years ago, in the days of old (although some people might see this ancient time as primitive and barbaric), God actually met the people in the culture in which they lived. He visited them amidst their own customs and started leading them from there. This visit from God came in a time when man formed nations and fought battles for the spoils of war. Each of these nations had their own God (or many gods), that they trusted in. However: One thing that all of these primitive nations at the time had in common was that they based their belief on their god(s); by which they believed won the battle for them. If they won the battle, then they had a strong God on their side. When the only one true God: The creator of the universe and all that is in them (Ex 20:11; Acts 4:24; Rev. 5:13) stepped back into mans life, he revealed himself by stepping right into their theology and was able to show and prove himself in the way that all of the nations at the time were proclaiming how a deity operates. At the same time of course there was the goal of righteousness, the need for long term survival and ultimate salvation (The reason for God's human intervention), which is seen in God taking out a seed for his name. This seed fulfilled in prophecy was through Isaac in the spirit (fulfilled in Christ) and the seed of Abraham in the flesh. As time progressed, strong nations came against the seed of God; and God fought for them. Throughout all of our ages the children of Israel learned all about the math of God, while always calculating the odds which provided solid testimony to a "living" God that was on their side.

There are so many Bible examples of this, it is hard for me to pick or select a single testimony for an example. However, one day in particular that was recorded in the book of Joshua clearly displays both the math of God and how their mathematical assumptions were proved into an axiom of such solid faith, that the sun and moon stood still. For the background please read Joshua chapter ten. Notice in vs.1-4 that when the king of Jerusalem had heard that Gibon had made peace with Israel, he grouped together with nine surrounding nations (10 kings total) to war against them.

After Joshua found out what was going on and moved forward to help: "And the LORD said unto Joshua, Fear them not: for I have delivered them into thine hand; there shall not a man of them stand before thee" (Joshua 10:8) So here we see that Joshua heard God's voice and was now sure that it was ok to move forward as seen in vs.9 "Joshua therefore came unto them suddenly". Why did he move forward? It was because he heard the voice of God: "And the LORD said unto Joshua". Joshua (and those that followed him) then witnessed something astounding as they moved forward. It would have been a strange sight to anyone, but to Joshua it was "a sign and a wonder". As he moved forward he saw that the enemy was "discomfited" (or confused):

The meaning in general is "to annoy," "harass," "confuse," "rout" and "destroy". The root of this word means: to make a loud sound (like English hum); by implication to be in great commotion or {tumult} to {rage} {moan} clamor: - {clamorous} {concourse} cry {aloud} be {disquieted} {loud} {mourn} be {moved} make a {noise} {rage} {roar} {sound} be {troubled} make in {tumult} {tumultuous} be in an uproar.

So now we see the words in vs.10 as a testimony from the writer: "And the LORD discomfited them before Israel".

Again: Notice that what we are reading here is a testimony of what God did based on what they saw and what actually happened.
There was not a word from the Lord that: "I will confuse them", this is what they witnessed first hand and then "assumed" was the method of fulfillment: God said; Joshua did; and everyone saw; (that they were all for some unknown reason "confused") which produced the math in their minds knowing that what they witnessed was something that God had to have caused to happen.

HOWEVER, this is not where it all ended: The enemy began to run as seen in vs.11. As they fled and ran downward towards the city of Beth–horon great stones came down out of the sky and began killing them. In fact there: "were more which died with hailstones than they whom the children of Israel slew with the sword" (Joshua 10:11).

So once again we see a testimony: "as they fled from before Israel, and were in the going down to Beth–horon, that the LORD cast down great stones from heaven upon them unto Azekah".

We notice the testimony of what was witnessed! Remember, God did not say "I will cast down stones on them": They saw God in the math as they witnessed first hand the "multiple compound event probabilities" and their faith was fully awakened to bring about what happened next. First, before moving on, put yourself in their sandals: Joshua told everyone that "God Said"; Next as they moved forward the enemy was confused (which was just not normal), so it was written as a testimony that "God" confused them.

Now days someone would be more likely hear on the local news: As this GREAT ARMY ran away from them, "it just so happened" (maybe by some huge coincidence) that stones started coming out of the sky and killed more of them with stones then they already had with the sword.

However, after what they had seen already, there was no choice but to realize the facts and testify that "the LORD" cast down great stones. In fact there was such a presence of God and a solid mountain of faith that Joshua spoke out to God with a prayer that met with qualifications: "But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed" (James 1:6). What caused this great faith in Joshua was him "seeing" God beyond any speculation of doubt.

"Then spake Joshua to the LORD in the day when the LORD delivered up the Amorites before the children of Israel, and he said in the sight of Israel, Sun, stand thou still upon Gibeon; and thou, Moon, in the valley of Ajalon. And the sun stood still, and the moon stayed, until the people had avenged themselves upon their enemies. Is not this written in the book of Jasher? So the sun stood still in the midst of heaven, and hasted not to go down about a whole day. And there was no day like that before it or after it, that the LORD hearkened unto the voice of a man: for the LORD fought for Israel" (Joshua 10:12-14)

There are also those that see the math in our day and time, in regards to God protecting and keeping a watchful eye on Israel. This is seen in questions, movies and DVD series examples: "Israel Survives", "Against All Odds" and "Is Israel still a place of miracles?". I watched some of these from the DVD collection of which there are so many awesome testimonies of God's intervention. Just as in the days of old, these testimonies and God's intervention is causing revival (or an awakening) in the hearts and minds of people today. This is clearly seen in the following online reviews of the movies: "God is not dead. Miracles are happening all around us. God does not do miracles without a purpose"; "in the final analysis the journalist had to conclude that miracles were occurring in all of these supernatural events"; "It brought goose bumps to me at times & reaffirmed Miracles are still happening, especially to God's People"; "Whatever your faith and whether you are religious or not this docudrama will certainly make a case for believing with solid evidence that inexplicable phenomena, which can only be described as miracles"; "An unbiased look at what I believe to be miracles of the God of Israel Who is very much alive"; "For everyone who wonders whether God still performs miracles today...watch this movie and you'll not wonder anymore. Israel is God's land and its people His people. What God does for His people humbles me"; Read more here

If a living God is part of our lives, we will also share in this same type of living testimony and bare record while "doing the math" that God is in our lives and causing things to happen every day: "A man's heart deviseth his way: but the LORD directeth his steps" (Proverbs 16:9)

Speaking of our last days Daniel said:
"But the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits. And they that understand among the people shall instruct many" (Daniel 11:32-33) "Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand" (Daniel 12:10). Jesus spoke of the ten virgins of which five were wise and five were foolish. Remember Jesus said that all ten virgins were sleeping, to which echoes the wake up call of Isaiah 60 throughout all our generations as also witnessed with Paul when he spoke to the Ephesians: "Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light. See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, Redeeming the time, because the days are evil. Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is" (Ephesians 5:14-17).

While making a division between the wise and foolish: When we take a Bible example or testimony of faith and compare it to our day and time, we most always witness a confrontation of God's math vs. what some people call coincidence. This word is also most always coupled together with words such as it was "only"; "simply" or "just"... a coincidence. The use of this word is most always used with precise or selective wording, with the intent of leaving God out of the story all together. We witness the news media all the time making God's "works" into some huge coincidence, while leaving HIM (the owner; originator; creator) out of the happenings entirely. However, we as believers see, believe and receive his works "doing the math" while lifting up our heads and giving God glory: "He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. He came unto his own, and his own received him not. But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name" (John 1:10-12).

When we see the works of God, we need to either simply believe, or do the math. Jesus stressed this point with unbelievers: "Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works. Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works' sake" (John 14:10-11). People "witnessed" God's math in the every day life of Jesus. Jesus also said "the works that I do, bear witness of me" (John 5:36). We need to see the works of God, and then testify and bear witness to them: "If I do not the works of my Father, believe me not. But if I do, though ye believe not me, believe the works: that ye may know, and believe, that the Father is in me, and I in him. (John 10:37-38). Finally, we will witness these same works in us once we are filled with God's Spirit as seen in the same context of this verse: "Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also..." (John 14:12).

To some people God's math can be simple assumptions, while others can so easily "do the math" (multiple independent and dependent compound event probability) and end up with a divine revelation that bursts into an axiom, proving beyond the shadow of any doubt that God is in their life and directing their steps.

The axiom is the result of assumption in the same way that faith is the substance of things hoped for, but being based on "evidence" that we can not see (Hebrews 11:1).

When looking at the creation, we must admit that everything has been made by something that we can not now see, or have not seen: "through faith we understand...things which are seen were not made of things which do appear" (this all being seen in the eleventh chapter of Hebrews, verses one through three.

In a hypothetical english hieroglyphic or pictographic sense this can be better compared to our day by going back into time and putting a sophisticated computer (or anything developed to a high degree of complexity), into the hand of someone from 4000 BC and telling them: That it created itself by accident; or that it just happened by random coincidental events; or maybe it all started from some big bang before we all existed. While we in our world and time know that the computer must have been designed: Likewise, while looking at the complexity of nature itself, we can only arrive at the most definite axiom that "things which are seen were not made of things which do appear" (Hebrews 11:3).

Anyone can see God once they are walking in his Spirit. God is a Spirit (John 4:24); Acts 17:28 says "in him we live, and move, and have our being". Think of God in the way of a Holy "Ghost", which you can not see as he does things to catch your attention. He wants you to both hear and see him! You can easily see God in the Spirit by simply looking at your life and everything that has happened in it (just like the creation). You can see how God has lead you and has brought things to pass, even right down to this tick of the second hand to "cause" this "exact moment" in your life! Jesus not only prayed for his disciples, he prayed for "you" - What did he pray? (John 17:20-26 also read John chapter 14 and 1 Cor. 12 for One Spirit, same Spirit, and selfsame Spirit)

Now we awake to the axiom of total faith, knowing that God is in and part our life bringing things to pass. You see your life is a fulfillment of God's word, as you turn your entire heart to him and surrender yourself.

If you are having a problem seeing God in your life, sit back and watch him in the life of others. This is what the testimony of God's math is all about. In fact in the case of dependent event probability many times you can talk to someone close to you about what they are doing, to see or understand more clearly future steps in your own path.

We should also know what a coincidence is, as well as the fact that word did not actually exist until the early 17th century. Noteworthy also is the fact that it came from a medieval Latin origin.

Coincidence
co·in·ci·dence
Noun: coincidence; Plural Noun: coincidences

A remarkable concurrence of events or circumstances without apparent causal connection.
A coincidence (often stated as a mere coincidence) is a collection of two or more events or conditions, closely related by time, space, form, or other associations which appear unlikely to bear a relationship as either cause to effect or effects of a shared cause, within the observer's or observers' understanding of what cause can produce what effects. In the direct usage of coincidence, there is no implication that the alignment of events is surprising, noteworthy or non-causal.

Synonyms: accident, chance, serendipity, fortuity, providence, happenstance, fate; a fluke. "Too close to be mere coincidence"

You should first understand that I am not trying to create or support a doctrine or any already made up theories of: determinism, fatalism, predeterminism, compatibilism (compatibilist predestination), etc.. I am simply all for truth and personal revelation in the way that only God and HIS word can bring to us through the Holy Spirit. While there might in some sense somewhere a place for the word coincidence to exist in the flesh, there is not much of a place for it in the Spirit. If you are: "in the flesh"; "walking after the flesh" or "minding the things of the flesh", you will find a place for simple or causal coincidence in your life. However (keeping a balanced view if your ears need rubbing), for a Christian walking in a Spirit filled life, coincidence is rejected and replaced with signs and wonders as each person begins to fulfill their individual destiny with full knowledge that God is bringing it all to pass.

Even though the word coincidence does not have a Greek or Hebrew root, there are Greek words and Bible concepts to what it later (during medieval times) became an antonym (opposite) of. Coincidence was coined more or less to combat and fight against the fulfillment of God's word, signs, wonders, mighty deeds, miracles, or other facts (axioms) regarded as proofs of divine missions and Godly destiny. There was a time seen in the Bible book of acts that "wonders", signs" and "miracles" resulted in pure astonishment, that made them wonder in amazement: ("and they were filled with wonder and amazement" Acts 3:10). This astonishment was experienced not only by those that stepped into their Godly destiny, but also those that saw, experienced, or partook of them in any way. As a Christian, signs and wonders should be part of our daily life in one degree to another.

Keep in mind that when Jesus came to the earth: that the nations (idolaters and pagans); as well as all of the different Jewish religious sects: Pharisees; seduces; Samaritans; etc., were not all together correct in the way that they served and worshiped God. We see that there were people in favor with God, however the general population was most definitely not living in that perfect place. This fact is seen in that during the time of Jesus, there were some devout people that operated in prophecy or prophetic gifts. Simeon as recorded in Luke 2:25 was "just and devout". It was because he was open and gave himself to God that God talked to him. God is no respector of persons, we can all draw close to God and hear from him concerning all kinds of different desires or needs that we may have just as Simeon did: "And it was revealed unto him by the Holy Ghost, that he should not see death, before he had seen the Lord's Christ. (Luke 2:26). Also in verse 36 "there was one Anna, a prophetess, the daughter of Phanuel" who also prophesied. In Luke 1:57 "Zacharias was filled with the Holy Ghost, and prophesied". Caiaphas also, "being high priest that year, he prophesied that Jesus should die for that nation" (John 11:51). As far as finding true words or witnesses: This spirituality also crossed over into wide gaps of religion as seen by Paul's testimony of those of the circumcision that lived on the island of Crete: "One of themselves, even a prophet of their own, said, The Cretians are alway liars, evil beasts, slow bellies. This witness is true. Wherefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith" (Titus 1:12-13)

Keep in mind also that even though the disciples were taught to pray from young children (consecrated prayer three times a day), when they witnessed Jesus praying in the Spirit they asked him: "And it came to pass, that, as he was praying in a certain place, when he ceased, one of his disciples said unto him, Lord, teach us to pray, as John also taught his disciples" (Luke 11:1) Get revelation with me on this now: Realize with me that John the Baptist was filled with the Holy Spirit from the womb; John prayed in the Spirit; What an experience it was for the disciples to also witness Jesus praying in the Spirit. They knew it was nothing like what they had been taught by their parents, as they saw the tears and spiritual intercession taking place. My point in all of this being that even though the religious systems were more then a bit off, it did not stop sincere hearts from reaching out and bearing witness to God and his sovereignty.

Also, unlike today (or at least outside western culture), there was a much more simple trust in God. Some people today would call it superstitious and presumptuous in a way, but lets call into mind how the disciples chose who was to replace Judas as one of the twelve in the first chapter of Acts. They prayed (and only after praying) left it up to God as to which man was HIS choice, by casting lots. They trusted that God had control over the flip of a coin. While this is true and I am sure ok for someone to put their complete trust in God this way today too, keep in mind that once we have the Holy Spirit directing us there is no real need for this kind of direction. There is no scripture reference of casting lots after the Holy Spirit was given, but on the contrary we see that the "Spirit" directed their paths: "Now when they had gone throughout Phrygia and the region of Galatia, and were forbidden of the Holy Ghost to preach the word in Asia, After they were come to Mysia, they assayed to go into Bithynia: but the Spirit suffered them not" (Acts 16:6-7) Also: "After these things were ended, Paul purposed in the spirit, when he had passed through Macedonia and Achaia, to go to Jerusalem, saying, After I have been there, I must also see Rome. (Acts 19:21).

Also, we see the religious of the day looking for signs and wonders and accepting people and God in their lives by what they witnessed happening in them. As for Paul, a group of Pharisees said: "...and the scribes that were of the Pharisees' part arose, and strove, saying, We find no evil in this man: but if a spirit or an angel hath spoken to him, let us not fight against God" (Acts 23:9). In John 3:1-2, Nicodemus came to Jesus with an honest heart saying that no man could do these works of God "except God be with him". Paul even said: "For the Jews require a sign" (I Corinthians 1:22). From the passages above we can clearly see that the early Christians were not flipping coins to see if they should go into a city, but on the contrary they were "forbidden of the Holy Ghost" and the "Spirit suffered them not". However, find the balance here: If you believe that God through the Holy Spirit tells you to flip a coin, then flip away, God always meets us where we live! (Acts 17:23-28)

In the Bible we see people down through all of the ages reaching out to God: We MUST SEE that we are witnessing the testimony of "normal every day people" during different ages, that turn to their creator and become the "beloved of God". We only need to glance at the history of their life testimony to see the divine plan for their life. It is in these examples that we can see and believe the divine plan for our own lives.

Jeremiah was one such person in that he felt inadequate to speak until God told him his destiny saying: "Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations" (Jeremiah 1:5). God also knew you before you were formed in the belly. You were also sanctified by the prayers of Jesus when he prayed for you. You are also gifted in living in this day and the time of promise when "your sons and daughters will prophesy" and "This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them" (Hebrews 10:16".

You can see "signs" and "destiny" in the infant life of Moses, as his life was saved by the ARC that he was put into when he was a baby. It was also his destiny that day when he approached the burning bush with amazement. Will you walk away from your burning bush, or will you look for and walk towards the signs that God is putting before you in your life path? Moses felt ordinary all through his life. In fact, he felt less then a "man" in that he could not speak well. In fact God says in his word that "the man Moses was very meek, above all the men which were upon the face of the earth" (Numbers 12:3).

David was a shepherd that loved singing psalms to God to the point that we was noticed above everyone else when God looked down from Heaven at a man after His own heart.

Daniel was also a normal person that was "noticed" by God when he set his entire heart in Gods direction: "Then said he unto me, Fear not, Daniel: for from the first day that thou didst set thine heart to understand, and to chasten thyself before thy God, thy words were heard, and I am come for thy words" (Daniel 10:12).

Since God is not a respector of persons, you too can "set your heart to understand". You too can seek God in his word and turn to his reproof and chastening as he pours out of his spirit and reveals the path for your life: "Turn you at my reproof: behold, I will pour out my spirit unto you, I will make known my words unto you" (Proverbs 1:23). "For the commandment is a lamp; and the law is light; and reproofs of instruction are the way of life" (Proverbs 6:23). "Through thy precepts I get understanding: therefore I hate every false way. Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path. I have sworn, and I will perform it, that I will keep thy righteous judgments" (Psalms 119:104-106).

Again: We MUST SEE when we read the word of God, the history and culture that it was written in.

God does not change, people do. He is the same God today that he has been all down through history: "Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever. Be not carried about with divers and strange doctrines..." (Hebrews 13:8-9).

As we read the Bible from cover to cover, we see people and groups of people that were taught and learned to watch for signs and omens (wonders). We read testimonies of ordinary people that experience real encounters with a living God. These people testify to our constant amazement while witnessing to, or experiencing angelic visitations, miracles, special miracles, visions, dreams and all kinds of different spiritual gift manifestations.

How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard him; God also bearing them witness, both with signs (Greek:semeîon) and wonders (Greek:téras), and with divers (varied in appearance or character) miracles (Greek:dýnamis), and gifts of the Holy Ghost" (Hebrews 2:3-4)

Signs: Greek: semeîon \say-mi'-on\
An indication, especially ceremonially or supernaturally:--miracle, sign, token, wonder.
Wonders: Greek: téras \ter'-as\
of uncertain affinity; a prodigy or omen:--wonder.

 

 

 


Miracles
: Greek:dýnamis \doo'-nam-is\
force (literally or figuratively); specially, miraculous power (usually by implication,

a miracle itself):--ability, abundance, meaning, might(-ily, -y, -y deed), (worker of) miracle(-s), power, strength, violence, mighty (wonderful) work.
Gifts Of The Spirit: Greek: merismós \mer-is-mos'\
a separation or distribution:--dividing asunder, gift.
Greek: pneûma \pnyoo'-mah\
a current of air, i.e. breath (blast) or a breeze; by analogy or figuratively, a spirit, i.e. (human) the rational soul, (by implication) vital principle, mental disposition, etc., or (superhuman) an angel, demon, or (divine) God, Christ's spirit, the Holy Spirit:--ghost, life, spirit(-ual, -ually), mind.

 

 

 

 

 

Some people today that find it hard to believe, only need to be taught to see signs and wonders in a way that they can understand.

So many people today get sun blinded by the "special miracles" (Acts 19:11, 6:8, 5:12-15) talked about and testified of in the Bible, that they miss out entirely on the every day miracles (Galatians 3:5) that God is bringing about in or through each of our lives (1 Corinthians 12:7-11).

Signs are needed in the life and walk of every christian on a regular basis. Since God does not change, we must know that he is still performing signs and wonders in the lives of believers the same ways that he has down through the ages. There are those that do not pay much attention to signs, wonders, dreams, visions, etc., which only seals their destiny in ignorance while also denying the works of God and direct fellowship with him. In the book of Jude it also talks about those that "speak evil of those things which they know not" (Jude 1:10). These people deny the works of God while saying that they are either signs from the devil or just some unusual happenstance, but always murmur and utter to the tune of it being ANYTHING BUT God.

"Why dost thou strive against him? for he giveth not account of any of his matters. For God speaketh once, yea twice, yet man perceiveth it not. In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falleth upon men, in slumberings upon the bed; Then he openeth the ears of men, and sealeth their instruction, That he may withdraw man from his purpose, and hide pride from man. He keepeth back his soul from the pit, and his life from perishing by the sword" (Job 33:13-18)

The world today is in such unbelief that people can not see signs as clearly as those that watched for them in old times. The world as we know it has been desensitized and in a sense programmed to deny and overlook God's signs and wonders. Dreams are no longer perceived as being from God and visions are blocked out of the mind and ignored entirely as some flash thought in their already chaotic and thought filled mind. People today care more about themselves and cater only to their own flesh. They are to proud to acknowledge God or to take a stand and testify for him as being active in their life. People have become highminded and heady, every sign turns into a coincidence and every wonder is boastfully dismissed while denying even the possibility God's power and interaction in their life.

"This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away" (II Timothy 3:1-5)

A Christian today needs God's signs even more then those in the past to survive and stand in this wicked day.

God today is doing an individual work in the hearts of people and raising up (or causing) a Godly and righteous seed to spring up for Himself:

"For as the earth bringeth forth her bud, and as the garden causeth the things that are sown in it to spring forth; so the Lord GOD will cause righteousness and praise to spring forth before all the nations" (Isaiah 61:11)

"...After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people. And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the LORD: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the LORD: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more" (Jeremiah 31:33-34)


"Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against the shepherds; and I will require my flock at their hand, and cause them to cease from feeding the flock; neither shall the shepherds feed themselves any more; for I will deliver my flock from their mouth, that they may not be meat for them. For thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I, even I, will both search my sheep, and seek them out" (Ezekiel 34:10-11)

Please check back as I am able to finish.

I am giving thought to my schedule, I plan on spending more time but some encouragement would help: If you have read this far and are being blessed, please let me know:

Right now the direction that I feel before exposing the math in the actual testimonies below, is to bring out the Bible reasons for our testimony, signs, wonders, miracles gifts of the spirit and fulfillment.
