More Information or Necessary Information

3/27/23 I realized today, after thinking through some ideas that have come to mind, there are different views on getting additional revelation for the Lord about one thing or another. The two thoughts that have been presented to me before (either that I’ve had in experience or people’s comments intimating things), that there is necessary types of knowledge and other times a knowing there is always more that we can learn from the Lord. So the two views or the two thoughts are these:

  1. Any information we get additional from the Lord in addition to our necessary salvation issues, is just like “Icing on the cake”, and we are not accountable for the “information” we receive, but its more like just additional gifts from God that we can use or not use, take or reject as we please. I will try to use an example that is plain to explain a case where this could potentially happen:

Say Bob is trying to decide whether to attend a church’s service or not, like let’s say a church weekly meeting service. He could be presented with the thought “if I go, God might could use me to be a blessing and I have been meaning to talk to Brother Joe about his thoughts about the Holy Spirit working on a man’s conscience” or something like this. “So, it would be beneficial for me to go to that.” Those was some of Bob’s line of thinking. Then Bob receives word that the church has started to accept homosexuals in the church and instead of putting them in a class for repentance, regeneration, recovery and foundational teaching of the gospel that transforms, Bob learns that instead there have been people supposedly there a long time as homosexuals, who have now been given ministerial positions. This upsets Bob.

Now Bob has a choice before him in that he could choose to go to see Brother Joe at the church, and tell himself he will leave right after because of the homosexual issue that’s an almost totally accepted issue at the church, or he could choose to hands-down refuse to go to that church’s meetings, because of homosexuality not being spoken against, and furthermore to the point of ministers appointed that are openly gay. The church was not proclaiming Reformation from it.

At this point, because of curiosity, Bob thinks deeply about the issue at the church, and searches for homosexuality in the Bible, but more so, him finding in Scripture Old Testament (Leviticus) and the New Testaments that homosexuality is spoken against directly. [The Bible is in 2 testaments, an old testament and a another called a new testament). In 1 Corinthians 6:9, Paul a servant of God, speaks directly that homosexuals will not inherit the kingdom of God. Then Bob feels really troubled is doubly concerned that the church would allow the ministers to be open homosexuals. Here are some other verses Bob found:

Some Bible Verses Against Homosexuality (The Practice)

This additional “information” Bob found can either solidify what he felt when he thought there was something wrong with appointment of “homosexual” ministers of God’s word, and the stance the church took towards homosexuality – or he can reject what he read, pretend he didn’t read it, and nobody would know, he could just be leery and keep guarded while going there.

In this situation, the new insight about homosexuality in light of God’s word, can be acted upon by Bob or maybe he can consider connecting with his friend Joe in a place away from that church.

In the above scenario with Bob, he sought out information in a Christian scenario that actually occurs in churches, even in this country – USA!

Based on the conscience issue and decision presented in the above story, I believe that Bob would be bound to stay true to what he read, even if he needed to read several versions or find the original Greek the Scriptures would have been in to make sure he had checked every avenue. My conscience would not have allowed me to go to the church again, based on additional information, but it would be duly noted that Joe, his friend should still be sought out and supported by him.

2. Information that we receive from the Lord is limitless and there is always more that God can show us, however, we MUST realize that all the knowledge we possess is meaningless without the love of God in our hearts to enable sharing it rightly.

I don’t have a scenario made for this one yet, but for the sake of time, I will say that it could occur in any case where a person is very intellectual, and also loves God, that there would be a need to meditate on humility regularly and keeping oneself around others that demonstrate love first, and then knowledge.

Paul writes to the church peoples in Corinth, “church people” being those who are set apart by taking Christ as their Lord, confessing His Name, getting baptized, showing fruits of wanting to be Christians, etc., that having knowledge of many things is good, even religious things. However, if we are given direct revelation like a dream, vision, voice, direct prophetic type of thing and we know we are responsible for sharing it, the by ALL means – we must do it! But Paul did say (in regards to knowledgableness) “Now as touching things offered unto idols, we know that we all have knowledge. Knowledge puffeth up, but charity edifieth. And if any man think that he knoweth any thing, he knoweth nothing yet as he ought to know. But if any man love God, the same is known of him” (Romans 8:1-3)

It is good to remember that in our zest for knowledge of the Lord, and sharing in His truth, we don’t get sidetracked with “More information” as opposed possibly to true revelation, that could weigh our brothers and sisters down. We have been given authority to do the opposite.

“For this reason I write these things down when I away from you, that when I come I may not have to be severe in my use of authority that the LORD has given me for building you up and not tearing down ‘ ~Paul (2 Corinthians 13:20)

John Wimber – “Vintage Vineyard: Wimber on Power & Presence | The Way On” – YouTube

3/28/23 John Wimber speaks on how the presence of Jesus can be a powerful thing. He mentions that though sometimes we may rile up and feel rebellious about it, we can get used to it, and we get rejuvenated with His Ever-Present-Love, that is always secure. That Presence brings me joy!

“Kathryn Kuhlman Interviewing Corrie Ten Boom” (YouTube)

3/25/23 I have always loved learning about Corrie Ten Boom, who was a survivor of the holocaust camps, specifically the Ravensbruck Concentration Camp in Germany. She survived her family members who were put to death, one by one. Her story shows her amazing and supernatural bravery amidst death that no one could fathom but God.

I have read her book, and had my daughter Mary, also read “The Hiding Place”, which is an amazing retelling of Corrie’s story. She had a movie made, but it is very almost literal at times, and I admit hard to watch. She is honored and heralded around the world for sharing such a story. This interview with Kathryn Kuhlman is very enlightening, and it’s marvelous the way Corrie lights up when she retells it, knowing that some of it must be so horrific, but does recall it so elegantly. This woman has traveled and dedicated the remainder of her life to telling the story. She has already gone to Jesus, and her biography, best I can tell (I haven’t read the whole webpage), can be found here.

Please give her book a read sometime, and you will no doubt be encouraged, as it is a true story.

Please buy it anywhere you can find, but if you need a link to buy it and order it online here.

Corrie’s Interview With Kathryn Kuhlman

This interview is over an hour long, and I had to watch it in segments to get through, but would do so again in a heartbeat – it’s SOOOO GOOD!

CBN Broadcast To Pray For Israel – Broadcast From Today 3/22/23

3/22/23 It has been a good day and always a good day to remember to pray for the peace of Israel.

Today Was A Day Of Prayer For Israel

Though I am not real strongly informed about what is going on with Israel, I watched this broadcast today and was encouraged to pray for peace in the land of Israel, pray for the Muslims there to receive more supernatural revelations of Jesus, and for people to come closer to God. I didn’t feel like the interview between the 3 speakers was trying to be universal, but I did feel like they were genuinely wanting the God of peace, and the true God of Israel to bring knowledge of Jesus to those seeking true religion in God. There are many muslims there, and part of their cultural idealogy is to “regain the land” in Israel as their Islamic ideals demand, but as Christians, we know it belongs to the Jews. I received an email from CBN, and it is the Christian Broadcast Network, whose site is I hardly ever get to read these emails, but I do think it’s important to remember Israel as much as I can. Somewhere in the path with the Lord, I’ve learned its important to remember the Jews in prayer, probably because Jesus was born a Jew, because the were the people group of our honored patriarchs Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and the people from whom we’ve received the most knowledge of the law of God (the Bible). King David, I believe was the one who instructed us that we are to pray for Israel’s safety, and here are his reasons.

Psalms 122 Instructs Us To Pray For the Jews! (Psalms 122:6-9)

6Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: “May those who love you be secure.

7 May there be peace within your walls and security within your citadels.”

8 For the sake of my brothers and friends, I will say, “Peace be within you.”

9 For the sake of the house of the LORD our God, I will seek your prosperity.

Here is the link to today’s Interview:

Many in the Islamic faith are celebrating Ramadan, so it would be a great time for Jesus to speak to these people in dreams, by his messengers, by incoming revelation found in the Bible – whatever works! There is no true God but Jehovah, and no other more beneficial Lord than the Lord Jesus Christ!

Phenomenal Article “What Grows From A Healthy Fear of the Lord” – Bible Study Tools

3/19/23 It’s not too hard to get caught up in emails these days. There seems to be an email for every thought a person has ever had, at least it feels that way. Many emails come in daily and I will to sift through them, but they fall through the cracks. Thankfully, I did see a task through that I set for myself in reading an article that had come in. I get an auto email in of a given weekday, maybe for everyday of the week from a group called “Bible Study Tools”. They really send me a verse, but attached at the bottom of the page, are articles that link me to believers that write phenomenon articles for them.

Experience With The Fear of the Lord

I have heard some comments before about how fear is mentioned in the Bible and have people speak of fear in a negative and positive light. I have come to experience myself and know that the “fear of the Lord” (reverential fear) has saved me on many occasions, and will for many more to come. I grew up in a household where traditional husband and wife, parents and children authority was present, and I’m thankful for that. Even in its imperfections, I did get a picture of an understanding that there was a black and white. I credit a lot of this understanding too, to the fact that I went to a church and the Bible was taught regularly. I remember dreading going to “big people”/”big church” part of the service, and not kid’s service, because I knew there was going to be reading from the Bible, singing, and more serious things. None of these things were bad, but even then I knew there should be a reverence for holy things. I have not stayed in that same exact environment, but the time and experience laid a prevenient-grace type of groundwork for a foundation in Christ that was to come. My Dad, whether he realizes it or not, has taught me a lot about the fear of the Lord. My friends who discipled me in college and taught me about spiritual mothers and fathers, also have taught me much about the Fear of the Lord. Both are invaluable to me now. The reason I elaborate on this concept of parenthood is that to me it is directly tied to the idea of the “fear of the Lord”. My parents in the spiritual taught me about rebirth in Christ, and my parents in the natural still teach me daily, too.

Article Ponderings: Article – “What Grows From A Healthy Fear of the Lord” by Michael a. Milton

The article is not too long, but it is wonderful!

There were more than 10 verses that the author chose to write about how the treasure of the Fear of the Lord is not only a staple in the Christian life, It is like an overarching theme and well-needed dietary supplement. If we think about Jesus as the bread of life (John 6:35), or ourselves hungering and thirsting after righteousness (Matthew 5:6), hungering for words of life and thirsting for the living waters, then I would say “The Fear of the Lord” is one of those elements we need to digest as much as our constitutions will allow. (And we should be!)

To me, if for no other reason than to Hallow the Lord’s Name, to honor God’s Name, and to not curse God, or blaspheme, we should hold to the fear of the Lord, the Fear of God. There’s nothing more powerful than the Name of God, the name of the Son of God, Jesus Christ. This is probably the reason why we can hardly find his name on our television channels or in publications/news, etc. His name violates sin itself, and if I could remember the Fear of the Lord for one thing for the rest of my life, and it was the only thing I was allowed to remember, it would be that I know I need to fear God to keep His name Holy (See the Third commandment of the Ten Commandments). “Because he loves me, says the Lord, I will rescue Him. I will protect Him because He acknowledges my Name” (Psalms 91:14). His Name can deliver from the worst dream, the most hellish vision, the hardest of enemies, the deepest of dark depths, the most-nagging-fly-a-thought on the mind, the most desperate state of the human soul crying out – that healing ointment arriving immediately in response to our crying out “Jesus, Jesus, Jesus”.

I used to be bad at reading, but my husband has helped me to get better. There is a wonderful chrome extension application called “Read Aloud”: A Text to Speech Voice Reader. Please download this at this link, and it will read the page for you, albeit robotic, gets read much faster and with more fluidity than trying to read something alone. Here is the link for that:

When you’ve successfully downloaded it, you’ll see it in the upper right of the internet screen, (where you put in website names to search), and the symbol will be an orange megaphone. Whatever you want to read, go that page, and click your megaphone, it will read for you – Sit back and enjoy!

***Alvin Slaughter -“Holy Holy Holy” – YouTube Video***

3/17/23 We grew up hearing this song, and I was singing it yesterday, and haven’t heard it in years!! What a treasure to remember this one. I am so happy to find this new artist also, Alvin Slaughter. Finding “gold nuggets” of songs that I have heard in the past of course carries nostalgia, but thanks to resources and tools like youtube, and finding lyrics on the internet, I can see who made these songs, the specific time era, the churches associated with it, and of course, the artists for them too.

Different Talented Artist

Alvin Slaughter is a good find, as he has a style similar to Ron Kenoly, but also similar to some styles seen with Marantha Music and Vineyard from the 80’s, 90’s, and beyond. I’m glad to know that God has put it in mind for some of the people who add these videos to youtube, and those who often have a “channel” that you can subscribe to, to hear more good music like this. The artist who posted this is called “SEBAOT” –


Songs that get in your heart like this can really lift your spirit on a rainy day, or on any day when you need a hand up. Even one song, if you get a chance to think on it, can change the entire mood of your spirit, if you can just meditate on the peace in Jesus you need from those words.


Please click on the video and enjoy!

Other songs you may enjoy are, and artist Ron Kenoly

Listen @ 4 Min “He healed that baby….umhhh…He healed that baby”

3/17/23 Whoa! Encouraging song, and good vibes listening to it! But then at about 4 minutes into the song, John P. Kee shares a story about a baby getting healed of degree burns inside and outside the body. Praise God!

Enjoy this song, and hear an amazingly, beautiful testimony of God’s healing power, too!

“I See the Lord” – Ron Kenoly Youtube

3/6/23 What a beautiful day! I had got caught up in a number of other things, and haven’t been as faithful with the blog as is needed. It’s a blessed Monday :). But this song is encouraging and it’s a good time to take a few minutes and remember the Lord is lofty and on high and above our troubles, sorrows, and cares.

God be praised!
