  1. Cleanse my heart and make me whole, Return the things that the devil stole, Take away my wickedness and make me new, Show me things that I once knew. Lord, I'm foolish and on my way to Hell... When's my last day? No one can tell, I can't forgive and I don't have faith, Lord- heal me of pride and come to my aid. I've lost my interest in reading your Word, I put less importance on faith than my works, I love people superficially and my soul is cold, Won't you send intervention before my spirit gets old...? My flesh refuses to die to itself- I'm carrying lots of baggage- there's dust on my shelf. I'm insensitive to what the Holy Spirit reveals, What if this life is a test, and my sight isn't real? Oh, how blind and deaf am I really am? Will I know you for real before the Bible is banned? I'm sick of my sin- please let the Light in... Let my old self die and the New Life begin...
  2. What is good to have?! A pure or a polluted heart? I prefer a pure, a pure heart... Because it is good, very good! "Now the purpose of the commandment is love from a pure heart, from a good conscience, and from sincere faith..." - 1 Timothy 1:5 Our heart is very, very important... It definitely is something we should be watching carefully! "Keep your heart with all diligence, For out of it spring the issues of life." - Proverbs 4:23 Do you have a pure heart?! Before answering, you better think carefully because: "For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies. These are the things which defile a man, but to eat with unwashed hands does not defile a man." - Matthew 15:19-20 Who wants to have a pure heart?! Repent and come to the Lord. "and made no distinction between us and them, purifying their hearts by faith." - Acts 15:9 But can the Lord do this?! Yes, if you believe... No matter who you are, what you have done, all things are possible with Him. "For with God nothing will be impossible." - Luke 1:37 Do you have something against someone?! Forgive, as the Lord said: "But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you..." - Matthew 5:44 Can't you do that?! Just pray and ask, for everything is possible for him who believes. "If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him!" - Luke 11:13 Get rid of all hate, malice, deceit and hypocrisy, pursue a pure heart... Strive wholeheartedly for what is good. Just ask and receive, says the Lord! "Blessed are the pure in heart, For they shall see God." - Matthew 5:8 Believe and it will be done to you. "Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them." - Mark 11:24 I do not care about this world, I do not care for what it has to offer... We know its deeds (they are evil), we know its end, which is destruction. Who would want to follow this evil world?! Who would want to follow the spirit of disobedience?! Their end is destruction. "It is a joy for the just to do justice, But destruction will come to the workers of iniquity." - Proverbs 21:15 We are not of this world, you are not of this world... Do not choose to follow its evil ways. Come and be free in the Lord, sin is not your master... The flesh and its evil desires... You do not have to obey them. "Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body, that you should obey it in its lusts." - Romans 6:12 Obey the Lord and let Him reign... And you will see it is very good! "When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice; But when a wicked man rules, the people groan." - Proverbs 29:2 Be free, be free, says the Lord... From this day I say to you: Your life will change, and for the better! Just believe and your sins will no longer be your master. You will no longer be its slave. "...For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil." - 1 John 3:8 Do you have a vice, does it still control you?! Not anymore, I will count few days from now and you will find yourself free. Can you believe it?! If you do then you already received it. Blessed are you, my friend! "...All things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any." - 1 Corinthians 6:12 Do you know someone you hate?! Now it is time to show them some love, in the name of the Lord Jesus. "not returning evil for evil or reviling for reviling, but on the contrary blessing, knowing that you were called to this, that you may inherit a blessing." - 1 Peter 3:9 Is it still too hard for you?! Then surrender, surrender to the Lord Jesus and have life. "But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God." - John 1:12-13 You desire to do good but you cannot, you cannot because when we are in the flesh we cannot please Him. "So then, those who are in the flesh cannot please God." - Romans 8:8 But we still desire to do good... But how!? Is there any way? "For the good that I will to do, I do not do; but the evil I will not to do, that I practice." - Romans 7:19 "For I delight in the law of God according to the inward man." - Romans 7:22 Do not be ashamed, surrender and receive the Holy Spirit, in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ... "So God, who knows the heart, acknowledged them by giving them the Holy Spirit..." - Acts 15:8 "Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven." - Matthew 5:16 Now, you are no longer under law but under grace. Glory to God! Amen. "For what the law could not do in that it was weak through the flesh, God did by sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, on account of sin: He condemned sin in the flesh..." - Romans 8:3 "For sin shall not have dominion over you, for you are not under law but under grace." - Romans 6:14 "Jesus answered them, Most assuredly, I say to you, whoever commits sin is a slave of sin. And a slave does not abide in the house forever, but a son abides forever. Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed." - John 8:34-36 You are free, you are a new creature, you are a child of God! "For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light" - Ephesians 5:8 Blessed and happy are those who believe in Him! "For of Him and through Him and to Him are all things, to whom be glory forever. Amen." - Romans 11:36 God bless you in Jesus' name!
  3. "All for Today" I wandered the streets naked hearing only the beats of my heart overflowing with a sixth sense of urgency; emergency; clergymen; demons; I fainted. Time had ceased. My mind was creased. Cursed with the truth, the lies twisted my hindsight; the sight lit my foresight and the now was one huge stooge ready to fall. It was a desperate call and I knew not who to listen to or who to tell, my apparently tortured loneliness was living hell. I eventually landed in a psychiatric ward where all my kin were studied as a backwards horde. The call was still ringing in my ears but I was stuck in tangents of a concentration camp. The antics of my fellow prisoners of war only proved to me I was in on the score and was losing; missing in action with only my (innocent of the facts) family to protect me. That was a decade ago now and how I came through is miraculous. ...yet that time is not written off, it still haunts me to this day, a reality I rarely speak of... and that is all I will burden you with today. -Gregory KJ Brumwell 2004
  4. Daily Reading 19 If you prefer, you can look up the following verses in your own Bible, of by whatever means and in whatever version you choose. Luke 14:25-35 Genesis 26 Psalm 19 Audio 4:36 Audio 4:18 Audio 1:52 The above addresses are linked to Bible Gateway. That is an easy way to read (or listen to) the Bible verses, and choose your version. Personally, I prefer written, that way I can go at my own pace, on think about it, before moving on. Nothing wrong with doing either or both. The Bible says faith comes by hearing. See the picture below to get an idea of what to expect if you follow the above links. Thank you Lord for making the your word so accessible for us in these times. Amen
  5. Matthew 4:1 - "Jesus was the led away by the Spirit into the wilderness, to be tempted by the devil." THE WORD "TEMPTED" ACTUALLY MEANS "TESTED OR PROVEN IN ADVERSITY." BEFORE JESUS WAS LED TO DO WONDERS, HE WAS LED TO DO BATTLE. THE FATHER PROVED THE CHARACTER OF HIS SON THROUGH CONFLICT. IT IS IN SPIRITUAL WARFARE THAT WHAT GOD HAS TAUGHT US IS TESTED. LIFE CONSISTS OF LEARNING LESSONS AND PASSING TESTS. THE INTEGRITY OF GOD REQUIRES THAT OUR LEARNING NOT BE MERE HEAD KNOWLEDGE, BUT THAT OUR HEART BE CONFORMED TO CHRIST SO THAT CHRIST WILL BE SOMETHING WE INSTINCTIVELY CHOOSE IN THE MIDST OF TEMPTATION OR BATTLE. Ecclesiastes 3:1 - "To every and a time to every purpose under the heaven." GOD DOES NOT DEAL WITH TIME; HE DEALS WITH TIMING. SOMETIMES THERE ARE SOME DIVINELY PERMITTED DELAYS IN MANIFESTING WHAT YOU'RE BELIEVING GOD FOR: ie. HE PERMITS THINGS NOT TO COME TO PASS UNTIL HE CAN GET YOU IN A CERTAIN POSITION.thing there is a season, IF YOU ARE FIGHTING THE GOOD FIGHT OF FAITH -- CERTIFYING AND CONFIRMING YOUR FAITH WITH THE WORD OF GOD AND STANDING FIRM UPON IT -- AND THERE IS A DELAY, THAT IS NOT THE TIME TO LET GO OF YOUR FAITH AND GIVE UP! THE DEVIL WILL TRY TO DECEIVE YOU INTO THINKING YOUR FAITH IS NOT WORKING OR THAT GOD IS NOT GOING TO COME THROUGH FOR YOU. Affirmations: I'M NOT MOVED BY WHAT I SEE. I'M NOT MOVED BY WHAT I FEEL. I'M ONLY MOVED BY THE WORD OF GOD. I BELIEVE GOD SAID WHAT HE MEANT, AND I BELIEVE GOD MEANT WHAT HE SAID. Proverbs 3:5 - "Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths. " "He who believes in Me [who cleaves to and trusts in and relies on Me] as the Scripture has said, from his innermost being shall flow [continuously] springs and rivers of living water."- (John 7:38)AMP As Believers in Jesus Christ we walk in and release a supernatural, prophetic river of life (see John 7:38). It is already flowing through us. The reality of the new creation is this: When a person is born again, the Spirit of Jesus comes and takes up residence inside. From that moment forward, new life flows out of that person like a river of living water. The new life that flows through us makes it possible for the Kingdom of God to touch the earth. AS FOLLOWERS OF JESUS CHRIST: We are called to bear good fruit and fruit that remains (see John 15:16), We are called to listen to what the Holy Spirit is saying (see John 16:13) and echo it in a meaningful, relatable way. Let him who has an ear listen to what the Spirit is saying (see Revelation 2:7). ALBERT FINCH MINISTRY
  6. 1 Corinthians 1:9 - "God is faithful (reliable, trustworthy, and therefore ever true to His promise, and He can be depended on)." SEEDS OF AFFIRMATION, MEDITATION, PRAYER, WORKS, GIVING AND OTHER ACTS OF OBEDIENCE ARE READY TO BURST FORTH IN BUD AND FRUIT. HARVEST AWAITS THOSE WHO DO NOT YIELD TO DISCOURAGEMENT AND REMAIN CONSISTENT IN OBEDIENCE AND DILIGENCE. GRASSHOPPERS OF DISCOURAGEMENT WILL ASSAULT US WHEN WE'RE WEARY. OUR STRENGTH IS DIMINISHED WHEN WE ALLOW OUR MINDS TO ENTERTAIN AND DWELL ON INFORMATION AVAILABLE TO OUR SENSES. WHEN FOCUSED ON THE TURMOIL AND UPHEAVAL OF THE TEMPORAL WE'LL BE OVERWHELMED. IT WILL NOT BRING US STRENGTH, BUT DRAIN US. CONDITIONS AND CIRCUMSTANCES WILL COUNSEL US TO GIVE UP. Affirmations: MY SEASON OF HARVEST AWAITS ME! I DON'T ALLOW THE GRASSHOPPER OF DISCOURAGEMENT TO DESTROY ALL I'VE SOWN. GOD'S PROMISE IS SURE AND BACKED BY HIS CHARACTER. Psalm 89:8 - "O Lord God Almighty! Where is there anyone as mighty as you, Lord? Faithfulness is your very character." 1 Corinthians 15:4,6 - "And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures. After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once." BEFORE YOU CAN RECEIVE THE FIRE OF THE SPIRIT, YOU MUST WANT IT. PERHAPS THAT IS WHY ONLY 120 APPEARED OUT OF 500 BRETHREN IN THE UPPER ROOM. Matthew 5:6 - "Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be filled." "Those who live in the shelter of the Most High will find REST IN THE SHADOW of the Almighty." - Psalm 91:1 "Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death I fear no evil, for You are with me." - Psalm 23:4 It's not about death's shadow. It's about God Who is OVERSHADOWING us. Wherever we go and whatever we do, God is there. We find protection under His SHADOW. "You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you, all whose THOUGHTS ARE FIXED ON YOU." - Isaiah 26:3 If we constantly look at how bad a situation is, peace will elude us. If we always wonder. "What are we going to do?" or "How are we going to make it? -- fear will grip our hearts. Peace comes when the eyes of our heart are FIXED ON JESUS - - the Author and Finisher of our faith. No matter what happens in the world, we can live without fear. We can enjoy life for we have been given a spirit of love, power, and a sound mind. ALBERT FINCH MINISTRY
  7. I would like to thank all of you you have been sending well wishes to my Mother, or praying for her. She is back home from the hospital now. She still isn't feeling the greatest, but she is on the mend!
  8. Just a quick not to let you all know ... My mother has now been moved out of the Critical Care Unit (ICU), and into a less-critical part of the hospital. Still no word on when she will be back home! ~Mark Harvey
  9. I just thought I would let you all know ... My mother is still in hospital. She is still in the Critical Care Unite (ICU). It turns out, she caught pneumonia, and they believe that that was what caused her heart rate to accelerate so much. But, most important of all, she is, slowly but surely, getting better and better! On behalf of all of us, I thank you all for your continuing prayers! :-)O
  10. I will give you all a brief update about my Mom, Evelyn Harvey. She is still in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of the hospital. She is being fed through a feeding tube, and she is breathing through a breathing tube. It is my understanding that those are just intended to be temporary measures, and the hope is that she will eventually be able to eat and breathe normally again. I was with her in the hospital for the better part of the day yesterday (January 2nd). Overall, she was looking much healthier yesterday, and her heart rate was much better, than the day before (January 1st.) I would appreciate for all of you to keep praying for her to have a full recovery. If that be God's will, of course! I thank you all, in love. ~Mark Harvey
  11. On the morning of New Year's Eve, I had to call 911 for my mother. The ambulance took her to the hospital. At one point , her heart was racing so fast, that they had to use those electric paddles to shock her heart to slow it down.They are treating her condition as Congestive Heart Failure.She is still in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU), at this point.I and my brother and my "sister-in-law" spent the better part of the day, on New Year's Day, with my mom in the hospital. I didn't get to bed until about 11:30 last night.My mom's condition (as of the time that I, personally, left the hospital) was serious, but stable. This morning, while I was talking with my brother on the telephone, he told me that they had inserted some kind of a breathing tube into her, so that she could breather more easily and sleep better I think she is probably going to recover, but with these kinds of things, we just don't know for sure, with these kinds of things.I would appreciate your prayers about this, for my mother (first and foremost), but also for my brother, Tony, and my "sister-in-law", Arelene, and for myself. Thank you all in advance for your prayers! In Jesus, Mark Harvey
  12. A person doesn’t need to be smart to have the heart of God – even though it is wise to attain the heart of God. Nowhere in God’s Word does it indicate that the sons or children of God are the ones that are smart or have a great knowledge, but His children are the ones that have the same Spirit and nature of God, which is pure love. Knowledge, wisdom, or prophecy can be a gift of God to some of His children for the work of His kingdom, but any godly gifts without the heart of God are worthless and powerless for His kingdom. We are called to know God, but this doesn’t mean for us to have knowledge about God, but to be One in Spirit with Him. To know God or to be One in Spirit with Him is to have the same heart and Spirit as God, which is pure love, which is God’s Truth in action. 1 Cor 8:1-3 - Knowledge puffs up, but love builds up. The man who thinks he knows something does not yet know as he ought to know. But the man who loves God is known by God. NIV Watch out for the ones that have not the love of God, but claim they have the knowledge of God. 1 Tim 1:5-7 - The goal of this command is love , which comes from a pure heart and a good conscience and a sincere faith. Some have wandered away from these and turned to meaningless talk. They want to be teachers of the law, but they do not know what they are talking about or what they so confidently affirm. NIV God says we will know whose child a person is by their love. To love others like God has loved us is right, but the ones that loves themselves and not others are not right and still of the devil. 1 John 3:10 - This is how we know who the children of God are and who the children of the devil are: Anyone who does not do what is right is not a child of God; nor is anyone who does not love his brother. NIV 1 John 4:7-9 - Dear friends, let us love one another, for LOVE COMES FROM GOD. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. Whoever does not love DOES NOT KNOW God, because God is love. NIV When a person is living by the pure love of God, which is by God’s Holy Spirit, then they will be living the Truth of God and fulfilling the whole law of God. 1 Cor 16:14 - Do everything in love. NIV Rom 13:10 - Therefore love is the fulfillment of the law. NIV Through Christ and having faith in Him, which is Truth, we can be fully filled with this pure love of God. The power to overcome all evil in us and around us is the power of God’s love, which He wants to impart into us. Eph 3:17-19 - And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love , may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge — that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. NIV To truly have the knowledge of God or know God, a person must be filled with the love of God first, because God is pure Love, and God’s Love is pure Truth. Anyone that is living by God pure love - will be fulfilling God’s Truth as well – even though they might not be able to comprehend and explain God’s Truth with their mouths. A person continuously living by the power of God’s pure love will show the world God’s Truth (Christ), even though they might not be given the gift of prophecy to proclaim God’s Truth with words. Heb 10:24 - And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds. NIV

    Praise God!

    So I've been married for just over a month now to the most incredible woman I've ever met. The only issue I've had with her is the fact that we were unequally yoked. I've been praying for her that she would accept Jesus into her heart and tonight it happened! She has been volunteering at our church for Vacation Bible School and tonight she became a Christian. Praise God!!
