Community Fellowship

John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

What's bad about good news?

Not a thing! Nothing at all!


Several weeks ago the Holy Spirit told me very plainly as I lay on the couch "ALL WILL BE WELL". There are many things we've been praying about and I knew this was covering them all. A fear not.


About a two weeks ago I got a call from the doctors office telling me the results of my last lab work showed my kidneys were functioning at a "low, level". This tried to unsettle me but:


Psalms 112:7 (NKJV) He will not be afraid of evil tidings; His heart is steadfast, trusting in the Lord.


I've worn this scripture to a nub in the past 40 years.


I was told to drink plenty of liquids and come back on the 8th to draw blood for lab work to check. I started drinking more water and some Cranberry juice which is a kidney friendly liquid. I do not drink any Cokes/carbonated drinks and just a little coffee some tea, mostly water. The clinic called back this morning and reported "everything looks OK"! Am I rejoicing? You better believe it. I was never afraid and am indescribably thankful to Jesus for hearing our prayers...and giving me an answer of peace. All will be well and I praise God for it! He gave me news of His deliverance before I even needed it. I wanted to give Him the glory He so truly deserves.



I've got a book full of deliverances the Lord has worked just in our family. How much in all the earth? As the Scriptures says the world couldn't contain the books that could be written of his deeds!


Early this morning way before daylight I stepped outside and was praising God. It was cool and clear and a lone cricket chirped. As I worshipped the Lord He showed me a brief image in the spirit of a flowing river and next to it an extension cord with a plug on the end. He said "just stay plugged in son"! The river was His grace flowing eternally from His throne. Everything that God provides. we stay plugged in by praise and worship.


By maintaining a right and repentant, thankful true heart before him we never lack the abundant peace that ever flows by us. It can flow right by us but we must be plugged in to receive of it. With his assistance, the Holy Spirit come to me by promise, I desire never to be unplugged again from all He has and and all He is. As brother Paul has written, to know Him and the power of His resurrection. No plug ins but to be hard wired to the flow! Amen

clawmute; I was treated with a drug while in a naval hospital for nine months that did damage to my kidneys. I am always in stage 3 kidney disease. In February of this year I went into acute kidney failure. This was nothing I even suspected, it came on all of a sudden. My kidney doctor put me in the hospital right away. After a week I was sent home. All of a sudden I craved water like i had never before. I was urinating every hour to an hour and a half round the clock for there months. I was unable to sleep but for as long as I had to go next. I was miserable! But the Lord healed my kidneys and I returned to my stage thre in may of this year.


Her is some vital medical advice, DO NOT drink GREEN TEA! I too only drink milk, tea, one cup of coffee and water each day. Today soda pop tastes like salt to me after mu kidney failure, before that I liked pop and drank a couple of glasses a day.


But God is Good all the time!

Justme I'm glad that God healed you. That's wonderful news. It's indescribable when He touches you and heals you.


He called me out in a service about 38 years ago through a prophet and healed me of heart trouble. I'd been having terrible pains. The symptoms would come back but I just stood on the faith from the healing He sent. Pains would come and I told the enemy that he had my permission to kill me if he could get past God's healing word to me and past the name and the blood of Jesus Christ.


Thanks be to God for our healing. Amen bother
