Tornado victim finds her dog in the rubble during a news interview!
Proverbs 18:20, 21 A man's belly shall be satisfied with the FRUIT OF HIS MOUTH and with THE INCREASE OF HIS LIPS shall he be filled. Death and life are in the power of the tongue and they that love it (indulge in; delight in; inclined in) shall eat the fruit thereof.
The Lord wants to bring us all to another level in our life. He wants to bring us all to another level of blessing, increase, character, power, glory, influence, effectiveness, satisfaction, and fulfillment. God wants things to turn around for us. God wants us filled up with His goodness and satisfied with our life. Many have witnessed the testimonies of others and yet have not personally experienced any real significant increase in these areas. Do not lose your expectancy. The God who gives the increase is still the God of the universe and He is your God and my God. We have to realize, though, the power of our words.
Our words are very powerful in influencing our life. They either work for us or against us. They either bring life or death. Here’s just a few truth’s about the power of words from the book of Proverbs that contains the wisdom of God about words.
Proverbs 10:20 says that, “…the tongue of the just is as choice silver….”
Just like in the economic system, money is the medium of exchange for transactions to take place, in the spiritual system words are the medium of exchange for spiritual transactions. In other words, use them like money or silver as the medium of exchange, or make transactions. Treasure words like silver, or guard them. Let words work for you like money or silver by investing them.
Proverbs 12:6 says, “… “the mouth of the upright shall deliver them.”
How you speak in the midst of trouble can deliver you or dig you deeper into trouble. Proverb 12:13 says “The wicked is snared by the transgression of his lips but the just shall come out of trouble (with his lips or words is what is implied).” God knows how to deliver the righteous out of all their troubles but often waits for an expression of their faith through their words.
Proverbs 12:14 says, “A man shall be satisfied with good by the fruit of his mouth….”
An element of satisfaction and good in life is tied to our words or the fruit of our mouth. You may be working hard but at the same time talking bad all the time and it is hurting your life. You may go to a church that speaks the Word of God or speaks blessings over your life but no amount of what is spoken over you in God’s house (church) can overcome what is spoken by you in your house. If you are not satisfied maybe you should examine how you talk or how you use your words. Our words activate spiritual laws designed to set us free and keep us free as Romans 8:2 says, “For the law of the spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.” Choose your words wisely and speak life and blessing.
Pastor John Rasicci
It is Critical that believers Study God's Designs - His Design for Marriage, for the Family, for the Church, for Government, for Relationships - and then submit to and adjust their lives to fit with and to live in agreement with His Designs.
When God's Designs are understood and cooperated with, then what He has Designed will function properly and wonderful things will transpire in and through the lives of those who live in agreement with them.
When God’s Designs are not understood or are willfully violated, then what He designed to be wonderful will be dysfunctional. When believers live in violation of God’s Designs, either through ignorance or willful disagreement, no amount of praying, crying, believing, or hoping will cause things to "work out great" for them.
The so-called "separation of Church and State" is invoked so often it might as well appear on the dollar bill.John Eastman, law professor at Chapman University, reminds us the phrase isn't in the Constitution as many people incorrectly believe.
“It's become part of the common parlance ... you go to any city council meeting, [and you'll hear] 'You can't do that. It violates the separation of church and state.' People believe that's what the Constitution actually says," Eastman tells Breitbart News.
Eastman blames Americans United for Separation of Church and State, a group which often goes to court in order to strip religion from public arenas, for keeping the phrase's incorrect usage alive and well.
Eastman's new course for Prager University, a learning site now available as an iTunes app, debunks the cultural misunderstanding.

Thanks for helping Rhema bring HOPE, HELP, and HEALING to those affected by the tornadoes in Central Oklahoma.
We are saddened at the loss of lives and by the tremendous hardship the tornadoes caused these precious people in Oklahoma. We pray that the Lord Jesus Christ will comfort them in their sorrow and restore them. I have noticed that some people don't notice what has occurred, because it did not affect them. I wonder if that is human nature or just the signs of the times we live in?
WHERE STORMS AND EARTHQUAKES COME FROM
The unanswered question in many peoples minds is why did this happen? I had a vision in 2004 that answered the question for me.
In September 2004, while praying, I had a mini vision, as Dad Hagin used to call them. In the vision, it seemed I was standing out in space looking back at the earth. It was like an astronaut would be out in space looking back at earth. I wondered what all this meant? I saw the earth tilted on its axis and saw the earth wobble minutely off course. It wobbled very ,very slightly as you would see a toy top wobble slightly. I saw the wind shift in a different direction, because of this and the earth's crust move in different directions.
THE SPIRIT OF GOD SAID
I heard the Spirit of God say, “The Earth is reeling off course, because of the fall of man through the act of sin. This started when the original sin occurred in the Garden of Eden. The earth has progressed further and further off course since that time.”
The Spirit of God said, “Great changes will occur in the weather of the earth and shifts in the earth's surface and earthquakes will increase. If I did not intervene and stop it the storms and earthquakes would become so violent that total annihilation would occur to the human race.” These things will increase as we move closer to the end of the age, because the earth is reeling to and fro, increasingly.
"..the foundations of the earth do shake. The earth is utterly broken down, the earth is clean dissolved, the earth is moved exceedingly. The earth shall reel to and fro like a drunkard, and shall be removed like a cottage; and the transgression thereof shall be heavy upon it; and it shall fall, and not rise again." (Isaiah 24:18b-20)
We must learn to listen to the Holy Spirit inside us and use our spiritual authority over things like this. May we all stand in prayer and support those who encountered these things.

ALL CHRISTIANS SHOULD WATCH
As an atheist, he clearly has no respect for a Christian that WILL NOT share their faith in Christ. He expects you to do so if you truly believe!!
IS THERE ANY LADIES IN THE HOUSE???? Can men really hang when it comes to child birth?? Hope you enjoy this video!!
This is a video of Chinese seeing a bible for the first time!! How we take our bibles and freedom for granted! It's awesome to see them embrace their bibles like something so precious, which they are!
This brings back memories when my pastor went to Nicaragua to hold a Pastor's Conference. He passed out bibles to the pastors. Next morning they came back for the conference and didn't bring their bibles. Evidently, they hid them in the jungle for the fear of losing their bible.
1 Corinthians12:28 And God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, HELPS, governments, diversities of tongues.
God has a purpose, plan, assignment, and place for every Christian. The work of the ministry is to be done by the entire Body of Christ. There is no division of church vs. laity, but rather all members should be functional members. Christianity is not a spectator sport. When you find your purpose and place, you discover the “why” behind your existence; you discover the original intent of the Creator Himself. Many believers will find their destiny in what is listed in 1 Corinthians 12:28 as “HELPS.” It is just as valid a ministry as the other gifts listed. Helps is that which renders, aid, relief, support, and assistance. This gift supplies ministry in a multitude of absolutely necessary functions in the Church. Jesus needs you operating in this gift and I guarantee you your Pastor and other ministry gift leaders need you in your place (1 Cor. 12:18) functioning in it. This is not the time to quit, drop out, or draw back now. Using military phrases it’s time for “all hands on deck” and to “man your battle stations.” You are too valuable to the team to take a seat in the grandstands now. You need to stay motivated and on course finishing your race. If you are a member of a local church here are Seven Values you need to confess and review periodically to stay focused and fired up:
Greetings and happy Monday!
This weekend we celebrate mothers: their hard work, their dedication, and their love. We received a story from Children International in Guatemala that shows us all of these things. Meet Elida, and her mother Faustina:
Every morning, around 5AM, a rooster’s crowing is mixed with painful cries of a girl trying to get out of bed and walk. Elida, fourteen, suffers from muscular dystrophy—if she takes more than two or three steps, she falls to the ground in pain. Her struggles have made her extremely self-conscious and when speaking with others she often hides her face and refuses to answer questions. Her mother Faustina tells us that Hurricane Stan further complicated an already challenging situation. “We lost the house where we used to live when Hurricane Stan hit,” she explains,“[t]he river swept it away…The one who has suffered most is Elida because I used to carry her to school, but now she’s too big and weighs too much…It’s too far to walk, so she’s resigned herself to staying shut up in the house.” While the Guatemalan government
