Powerful or Powerless?

We don't fast, we don't pray, we don't live lives of sacrifice; Is it any wonder why we don't see God doing awesome, incredible things in and through our lives? Is it any wonder why we don't see miraculous healings? Bringing souls to Christ by the masses? Receiving answered prayers? Being released from sinful bondage's? Helping others being released from addictive life ruining sinful bondage's like drugs? Alcohol? Pornography?
Why are we so comfortable with our lukewarm, disgusting, complacent, compromising, American Christianity? Why don't we weep for the souls of the lost? Or our hearts break for the lost multitudes that pass by us on the streets? While all we care about is the newest super tech cell phone we "gotta have"? or the newest latest flat screen TVs? The newest video gaming system? Sound system? The latest popular flick in the movie we wait anxiously all week to see? We are so consumed by the most futile stupid things, emptiness, pure emptiness that our society sells us, we buy it all up, we gobble it all up, with no remorse for the money we waste, the time we waste, the energy we waste, the life we waste, all the the while neglecting, and willfully disobeying the greatest most important purpose, will, and calling of all of our lives- to follow the greatest command ever given to mankind by the son of the living God, the greatest calling God Himself bestows upon every christian- to preach the gospel. Do you want to know what Gods will for your life is- its plain, its simple and right in front of your face- if you'd just open your calloused, crusty, scaled eyes, and pry open your dusty Bible. Matthew 28:18-20 "And Jesus came up and spoke to them, saying, "All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. "Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age."

Were is your faith? Who do you believe in? Where are the faithful Christians? Where are those whom God has called? Where is your faith o man? Where is the simplicity of faith that I see so lacking in today's modern christian? No faith for God to provide them a job? To provide them their proper and due fiances to supply their needs, not their WANTS, but needs!? Where is the faith that God allows trials and suffering for His saints as a test? As a learning ground? Have we forgotten what the very wise man Job said in Job 2:10 "You speak as one of the foolish women speaks. Shall we indeed accept good from God and not accept adversity?" In all this Job did not sin with his lips."
So shall we indeed only accept good and not bad from the Lord?
Where is your faith that God CAUSES ALL THINGS to work TOGETHER for GOOD, to those who are called according to His purpose? Romans 8:28 "And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose."
Are you called sir? Are you called madam? If you are, then have faith in the God that rescued and saved your soul from the pits of flaming hell, and know that this same God will also provide for your trifle little things here on this earth. O people! Please hear the Lord today, and harken to His voice, don't refuse Him who speaks...
Hebrews 12:25,28-29 "See to it that you do not refuse Him who is speaking. For if those did not escape when they refused him who warned them on earth, much less will we escape who turn away from Him who warns from heaven...Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom which cannot be shaken, let us have grace, by which we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear. For our God is a consuming fire."
Hebrews 12:11 "All discipline for the moment seems not to be joyful, but sorrowful; yet to those who have been trained by it, afterwards it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness."

Paul the apostle declared- "I know whom I have believed"..
2Timothy 1:12 "For this reason I also suffer these things, but I am not ashamed; for I know whom I have believed and I am convinced that He is able to guard what I have entrusted to Him until that day."
Do you know whom you have believed? Where is your faith o sinner? Whom have you trusted for your soul? For your life? Whom have you believed on? And for what?
Jesus said when He comes back to the earth, He is looking to see who will have faith.
Luke 18:8 "I tell you that He will bring about justice for them quickly. However, when the Son of Man comes, will He find faith on the earth?"

My heart is grieved not only for my pitiful life and soul, but for my fellow brethren. May we weep, mourn, repent, and change our lives to be, and live as Christ desires.

God help us all!

(please read this quick article off the mission field "Tumor disappears after prayer"

also this one "Why healings happen on mission field"

Hebrews 12:4 "You have not yet resisted to the point of shedding blood in your striving against sin;
Hbr 12:5 and you have forgotten the exhortation which is addressed to you as sons, "MY SON, DO NOT REGARD LIGHTLY THE DISCIPLINE OF THE LORD, NOR FAINT WHEN YOU ARE REPROVED BY HIM;
Hbr 12:7 "It is for discipline that you endure; God deals with you as with sons; for what son is there whom his father does not discipline?
Hbr 12:8 "But if you are without discipline, of which all have become partakers, then you are illegitimate children and not sons.
Hbr 12:9 "Furthermore, we had earthly fathers to discipline us, and we respected them; shall we not much rather be subject to the Father of spirits, and live?
Hbr 12:10 "For they disciplined us for a short time as seemed best to them, but He disciplines us for our good, so that we may share His holiness.
Hbr 12:11 "All discipline for the moment seems not to be joyful, but sorrowful; yet to those who have been trained by it, afterwards it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness.
Hbr 12:12 "Therefore, strengthen the hands that are weak and the knees that are feeble,
Hbr 12:13 "and make straight paths for your feet, so that the limb which is lame may not be put out of joint, but rather be healed.
Hbr 12:14 "Pursue peace with all men, and the sanctification without which no one will see the Lord.

Hebrews 12

Romans 14:8 "For whether we live, we live unto the Lord; and whether we die, we die unto the Lord: whether we live therefore, or die, we are the Lord's."
