For Jesus It Was A Dangerous Day!

In the Shadows of Victory you are invited to ride the roller-coaster of Holy Week.

We now begin the journey, remembering that already we stand with Jesus Christ our Saviour in the shadow of the cross, remembering that for him, it was a very dangerous day.

Jesus knew exactly what he was doing mounting the donkey at Bethpage, as this was where the priests had calculated the city limits. For Jesus to mount here was a statement that spoke volumes to all that were there. It was, in effect, as if He was shouting from the rooftops that He was the Messiah.

Now, position yourself at the side of the road, having first run and chopped down a palm branch that you are waving frantically.

Picture if you can the Roman army standing there, thousands of them, making it very clear that you are part of an occupied people. Look up at the temple on the hill, and look beyond it. There overshadowing the holy place is the fist shaped Roman fortress. Built purposely taller than the temple just to remind you who was in charge.

Listen to the crowd hailing him as their King. But He does not come on a war horse, only a humble donkey. And He does not come with swords and clubs; He is armed only with God’s words of peace and love.

Wave your branches, as they are the national symbol of your people. Wave them at the coming Messiah, showing your defiance to the Romans, believing that this Jesus would send them packing once and for all.

Jesus knew that for Him, it was a very dangerous day.

Picture the children laughing and playing around your feet. In your fear, you push them forward. Somehow this fear is always lurking beneath your joy; your fear of the Roman soldiers and the power they hold over you.

The children – they are young, surely these soldiers wouldn’t launch an attack against them, no matter how unruly the crowd become. Push them forward, put them between you and the soldiers, not because you do not love your children, but because you fear for your own safety.

Jesus knew that for Him, it was a very dangerous day.

Sing your hosannas, not just a song of happiness, but also a song of rebellion, a song that speaks of freedom, and of victory over your enemies. Stand tall in the face of those who persecute you. Hold firm, ready to take up arms and fight, ready to rally around this new king and take back, by force if you have to, your land, and your home.

Jesus knew that for Him, it was a very dangerous day.

With many peaceful blessings

My Two Healing Miracles

Last night I received not one, but two, healing miracles.
 
Yesterday I developed a nasty cough; and when I have a cough they normally stick around me for a week or two, sometimes longer.
 
I was not thrilled at the prospect of having another cough so I prayed to our Father God that when I awoke in the morning my cough would have disappeared.
 
And He answered my prayers.
 
I must have gone to sleep but suddenly I awoke and my throat was clear and I knew that my cough was gone, to wherever redundant coughs go.
 
I looked at my clock and I was astonished to find that I had only been asleep for less than two hours.
 
But the reason that I had suddenly been brought back to consciousness was because my stomach was in pain. I felt that it was no ordinary pain; it was hurting greatly.
 
Pain and me never get along well – and I was a little concerned. From being a cough-free zone in my body God had given me something else to think about.
 
Our Father God certainly knows how to grab my attention!
 
I couldn’t get comfortable in bed, the pain was too discomforting.So I went downstairs, so as not to wake Marlene, and sat in an armchair.
 
And, once again, I prayed and prayed and prayed.
 
And, once again, God answered my prayers, and within an hour or so, the pain began to subside and finally disappeared within a few further minutes completely.
 
Although I have had very little sleep my night has been one long prayerful adventure.
 
I find that the more I pray, the deeper I pray, I am drawing closer to God and am continually finding myself having a deeper relationship with Him.
 
Thanks be to the Lord our God for providing me with such a remarkable demonstration of His healing powers and He is always reminding me of Matthew 7: 7 when Jesus is saying, “Ask and it shall be given unto you”.
 
Praise be the Lord. Hallelujah.
With many peaceful blessings
Geoffrey

Urgent Appeal for Priscilla

priscilla

There is a little girl in India – Priscilla – who needs urgent life-saving surgery.

But India, sadly, has no free National Health Service like we do here in the UK.

The cost of Priscilla’s operation will be 63,000 Rupees (around £800) which is a large sum of money for my friends in the church in India who are desperately praying for her.

They are praying for a miracle and I am asking for your kind and generous support in making this miracle become a positive reality.

I will be donating all the profits from the sale of my recently published paperback book – ‘What Is Your Favourite Bible Verse?’ – for Priscilla’s life-saving operation.

All you have to do is to go to:-

https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/1520602545

The book only costs £9.95 which is a very small price to pay when you know that you will be preserving the life of this little child, Priscilla.

And, in addition, if your heart tells you that you would like to donate more money toward’s Priscilla’s operation then please go to my donation web page:-

http://godsholyspirit.net/Donations.html

All donations that we receive will be sent immediately to the Priscilla Fund Raising Committee in India.

Thank you, in advance, for all your wonderful love and support

God Bless

When the day of Pentecost arrived, they were all together in one place. And suddenly there came from heaven a sound like a mighty rushing wind, and it filled the entire house where they were sitting. And divided tongues as of fire appeared to them and rested on each one of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit gave them utterance.

(Acts 2: 1-4)

During the past few years I have come to know the Holy Spirit very well. And our Father God has empowered me with the Holy Spirit so that I am given the gift of writing books to glorify His Kingdom.

Through 186 pages and  51,000 words, and through the willing assistance of the Holy Spirit, I humbly invite you to order a copy of my new paperback book.
The Holy Spirit is good – all the time

The Holy Spirit Store

The Holy Spirit Store

During this past weekend I have begun to design the Holy Spirit Store.

Although, at the moment, it is still in its embryonic stage, I thought that I would share the web address of the store with you.

If you are interested in any of the products that we are selling all the links do work and all the products may easily be ordered.

I plan to add more categories as time permits.

All the profits from our new Holy Spirit Web Store will go towards expanding our overseas ministry.

As always, your wonderful love and support will be greatly appreciated.

May the Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you now and for evermore.
