Please tell the people to stop cremating People. This is a violation of God's Children. True believers are given power to raise the dead People have come to life in morgues. People Ave come back out of deep comas. Stop embalming people and bury them whole and wrap them in spices and leave them whole. I died in my sleep and Thank God I called on The name of Jesus and he brought me back to life I am a living witness. I am so glad I knew to call on him because the people would have call sometime and that would be it. Until the resurrection. Jesus is so Real. Stop Cremation leave people the way they are remove nothing. LET God BE MAGNIFIED.

This for Mario Sanchez:

Thanks for your testimony. I wish all my friends who have been diagnosed with cancer and other illness could hear your testimony. This is the time for us to Let God Be Magnified and I pray God give you the platform to reach millions. I have lost many friends who were diagnosed after mammograms. They were doing just fine and then you turn around and they are gone. God made us and he certainly can cure us. Yes God is real and watching every move mankind is making. I also want to share this with ou. Every morning I would Praise God for a new day by beating on an old steel cooking vessel. Well I did this for a couple of years and then one morning as I was beating my familiar chant , there was extra music, almost a whistling song coming from this thing. I was like Woah, really? I kept on beating and the extra music kept on going til I stopped. To this day I give God the Glory there is no other explanation. After that I was actually afraid to do it again it was so powerful.

I agree on this discussion re: three in one, The Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost. I' m getting interested to this site. May God Bless you More


S Spencer's comment on 2021-01-28 13:08:19:

Hi Alex, As you mentioned James wrote to the 12 tribes of Israel, """( That are scattered) """" and 5:14 he referred them to the elders of the church if any were sick, During that time the early Church was nearly ALL Jews, So James may have validated what we said before, the Israel of God is the Messianic Jew. Thank you.


Alex's comment on 2021-01-28 10:24:18:

James 1 KJV. My comments about the Church being the Israel of God. James 1 written to the 12 tribes scattered abroad, But in Chapter 5 : 14 James writes is there any sick among you let him call on the elders of the Church . Here we see that the Church was the Israel of God. As James says them that are of faith . Which are the Israel of God.

Pastor Chris, I am glad you got my message.

I really appreciate your kind words of confirmation, and receive them, and accept them as true and sing the victory of the Lord.

I thank the Lord for his mercy every minute that I have a chance to stop and pray.

I made a promise to tell the world about his miracle, and you can count on that.

It is going to be awesome and powerful. God has set me on fire.


Chris's comment on 2020-06-24 23:56:04:

Mario. Praise the Lord for what He has done in your life & for your healing. 'Thy faith hath made thee whole & it is truly the Lord's Doing & it is marvellous in our eyes.' What an impetus to your love & faith in Him: that it may increase day by day & that you may prove Him faithful in every area of your life. Trust that your testimony to your Fellowship on the Lord's Day will be powerful & that it might be just the word from the Lord to someone struggling in their faith & God's Power.

Psalm 100 for you.

Today is June 24th of 2020:

About two years ago, I was diagnosed with prostate cancer, confirmed by two laboratory tests, several MRIs, CT Scans, many PSA test, and other many test.

The entire time, I refused to accept it, and prayed and believed with all my heart, all my mind, and all my soul, that God could heal me; And for that reason, I refused for the doctors to operate on me, or do any other type of treatments.

A few weeks ago, I had a second prostate biopsy since I was diagnosed, and to tell you the truth I was trying to avoid it completely. I cannot tell you enough on how much pain and discomfort you thru this.

Emotionally, I never even blinked once, I believed, prayed, and declared my healing every day.

A couple days ago, I received the results of the second guided biopsy which is very accurate, and from 18 cores they took out an analyzed, it came back with 0. No cancer at all.

Every day, I thank the lord for my healing, his mercy and un-measurable love and faithfulness.

This is a scientifically proven real Healing.

I made a promise to be his witness around the world when he would perform the healing and I specifically asked that I would be able to prove it to those that do not believe.

This Sunday is my first declaration of my Miracle healing at a church in Dallas Texas and is going to be great.

Here is the name of the church and address:

La Parole Eternelle Church

4600-Wheeler St, Fort Worth, Tx 76117.

God is great....

I'm confused about communion, Sacrament and who is represented at the pass over to participate in this ordinance


Jared's comment on 2015-03-09 05:40:29:

I have heard from an elder that when asked to do this that someimes God has revealed sin as the culprit while other times God has healed.


Clinton's comment on 2014-12-09 04:43:21:

God word is plain and simple to understand.He do not speak in riddles,He speaks so you will understand, yet there are those that try to add to His word or change it to their way of thinking.Where is your faith ? Either believe God or make Him a lie , God is not a man that He should lie Numbers 23 19 Read James 4 8 AMEN and Amen


Cold Mock's comment on 2014-09-14 20:40:20:

P. Petr yes any Christ Man Christian can annoint


Jesse Howard's comment on 2014-01-04 20:36:24:

I am a believer and follower of the practice of a anointing and praying for the sick. I have witnessed, many times, God's Grace in healing someone in need. I'm not hear to argue for or against modern day medicine, but to witness to you God's love for us and His willingness to bless us when we have faith in His Son, Jesus Christ. I believe anointing and prayer through the laying on of hands, are just one more way God expresses His love for us. He uses the Sacrament of the Bread and the Wine, the Sacrament of Marriage, Baptism, and many more. May God bless us, all, as we continue to seek Him.
