I LOVE God with all that I am
May 5th 2022 - sharing another piece of my journey and walk with Christ. I was given a vision back in 2005 and did not know what to do with it, but God knew, all I had to do was hold onto the vision and let it work out in His timing, will and way. Today, I am seeing that fruit come to life.
In 2005 I was starting a whole new walk in life that I was embracing and moving on. God moved me to a whole new area 800 miles of where I had been and set me in a pocket of protection where I felt I stepped back 30 years in time.
Fast forward a little, I settled into this new area that I had never heard of and never stepped foot onto until I was called to be here. The vision you can read about is on this blog in full, but overall it's a vision of land where people who are believer's come together in community and work side by side maintaining life and starting each day in prayer for His will be done.
This year 2 parts of that vision came to fruition.
1) I saw Horses healing people - on Nov. 6th 2021 that vision came to fruition right where I saw it coming to fruition. God is so good! An now I volunteer at that amazing place.
2) I was able to meet a man who maintains the land that I saw in my dream. We spoke for about an hour, I was able to meet the 7 horses that are on this land. What he shared with me was so ironic, but confirmation that I am right where I am suppose to be. I told him I had a dream and vision of the land in 2005 before I even knew this place existed, then after I moved here and a decade later I was reunited with a pastor friend who told me about this land being for sale and told me that God wanted me to have it. He had no clue that this piece of property was practically in my backyard, and that I discovered that it use to belong to my husbands family who had the original land grant and name that everyone here would recognize. wow!!!
This land was for sale awhile back, but the owners took it off the market. When it was for sale, the man I met shared with me that many who came had visions from God as well. One couple wanted to put 3 retreat type places on the land where people who needed to get away could for a time. That is part of my vision as well. And another man wanted to make it into a community garden, and that was also in my vision.
For some reason they took it off the market and are keeping it, the owners only come up on the weekends, but the maintenance people live there year round taking care of it and maintaining the property. All I could do is stand in awe. God has this and I am holding onto my piece of His glorious quilt.
Quilt: to me a quilt is made with love and time. There are single threads woven together to hold each unique piece in place. That is how I see all of us who are in the body of Christ. He is the center of it all and we are the unique pieces, coming together for such a time as this.
So today, I hold the promise and pray daily for His will to be done here upon this earth, as it is already done in heaven and I trust with Faith, Hope & Love in what He calls me to believe.
SMALL STRAWS by MARSHA BURNS
Even though you feel like I am a billion miles away sometimes, I am as close as your breath. But you must quiet your thoughts and emotions and be really still to know My presence. Do not doubt your ability to look for Me and find Me. Allow Me to fill your heart with peace that is beyond your understanding. Come and let us have sweet fellowship together, says Yeshua'
Acts 17:26-29a - and He has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their pre-appointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings, so that they should seek the Lord, in the hope that they might grope for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us; for in Him we live and move and have our being.
The Inspiring Life of George Müller
Night was falling over the harbor of Bristol, England, and in the orphanage founded by George Müller and his wife, the children were getting ready for bed. George was working in his study when his wife arrived with alarming news. “We’re out of milk,” she said. “There isn’t enough for the morning oatmeal.”
George laid aside his pen. This wasn’t the first time that money needed to buy food and other supplies was tight. The Müllers took in their first group of thirty girls in 1836, and their orphanage now housed over a hundred. From the first George remained resolved never to ask for funds from people or to borrow money. He went to God alone for every need, trusting wholly in the Lord’s faithfulness and provision.
The pastor rose from his desk and reached for his wife’s hand. “Mary,” he said, “let us pray.” Two orphanage employees joined them, and together they made their humble yet necessary request to God. Tiny, helpless mouths were depending on them for sustenance. “Be assured, if you walk with Him and look to Him and expect help from Him,” George reminded them afterwards, “He will never fail you.”
Someone knocked on the door. Mary hurried to answer, returning to the study a moment later. She handed her husband an envelope. “It’s a letter, George. Hurry up and open it.” Enclosed was a sum of money, more than enough for the milk. Within minutes, two more letters arrived with money and pledges of support.
This immediate and abundant response to prayer had become a typical experience for Müller. After he came to faith and started meditating seriously on the Bible, he determined to simply trust God at His Word. As a pastor, he decided to live without a salary, relying only on money given to him. George learned to pray faithfully from his heart, asking His Father to move the hearts of men so that they would supply him and his family with what they needed to survive.
As a self-proclaimed “poor man,” regarding good works and holiness, George was well aware of what he lacked spiritually. George had grown up the privileged, arrogant son of a lawyer and routinely, drank, gambled and skipped out on bills. As revealed in The Autobiography of George Müller, one night he went to a prayer meeting, and everything changed. He got rid of his library of over three hundred books and kept only one, the Bible, the only book George felt he now needed.
One night while seeking the Lord regarding the orphanage, he heard, “Open thy mouth wide and I will fill it.” And so a great experiment of faith began.
Faced with difficulties regarding the rented houses where the children lived, he dreamed of building an orphan’s home on its own land and with every amenity. It took eighteen months to amass the initial sum of money, and throughout that time George counted the days he spent in prayer and recorded the funds as they trickled in. Each donation, God’s answer to his prayer rather than the fruit of a plea to man for money, spurred him to continue. Eventually he built five homes, costing more than $100,000 to build, which is over $14,000,000 in today’s currency.
These institutions were models at the time, when very few such places existed. Many orphans lived on the streets or went to poorhouses, where they were treated like slaves. In the Müller homes, each child was tenderly cared for, clothed, fed, and educated, with Christian instruction as the bedrock. When they left the orphanage in their late teens, they went on to live productive lives.
George raised each and every penny for this wonderful ministry on his knees, through unceasing, persistent, thankful prayer and an unwavering faith in God.
Almost two hundred years later, the George Müller Charitable Trust in Bristol still operates today and continues to adhere to George’s commitment to seeking money only through prayer. Tens of thousands of souls, orphans and other needy children, families and the elderly, have been helped.
As George reminds us, “Every child of God is not called by the Lord to establish schools and orphan houses and to trust in the Lord for means for them. Yet, there is no reason why you may not experience, far more abundantly than we do now, His willingness to answer the prayers of His children.”
Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful. Colossians 4:2
George Müller was an evangelist and the director of the Ashley Down orphanage in Bristol, England. He was founder of the Open Brethren.
Caleb is a representative of the Tribe of Judah during the Israelites' journey to the Promised Land and was one of the spies sent by Moses to spy out the land of Canaan. Only Caleb and Joshua advised the Hebrews to proceed immediately to take the land, and for his faith Caleb was rewarded with the promise that he and his descendants should possess it. Joshua and Caleb brought back a good report and believed that God would help them succeed. They were the only men from their generation permitted to go into the Promised Land after the time of wandering. The first character trait we can learn from Caleb's life is that he trusted in God's faithfulness to keep His promises. A person who trusts God's faithfulness will be greatly used by God. There was a significant difference in the way that Joshua and Caleb approached life and uncertainty than the other Israelite spies and the population as a whole. God is ultimately in control, even when we can’t see His fingerprints upon it. Joshua and Caleb had the vision to see that if God had moved in the past, He would move now, because God is always bigger and mightier.
His name is Campbell but everyone calls him Bumble. I have been following his story since it first came out and I wanted to share it here on my blog. He is an inspiration to me, because he has a passion with a purpose at such a young age. I was 56 when I first discovered him and would love to have a passion and purpose such as this. He is 13 years old as I am writing this in 2018. When he was 9 he asked his mum and dad if he could buy Christmas presents for kids in the hospital, but, when they told him it would cost too much, he started making them himself. His goal is One present a day or 365 a year, giving them all away to children and people who are sick, or in need of hope. Today he is 16 going on 17 and still making others smile and still an inspiration to me.
If you know of a child that Campbell could send a bear to and would like to share their story please send him a request through his form on his website @ www.project365.org
He started when he was 9 and today he is 16 and still going strong, what an amazing young man.
Revival of Crossing the Jordan
Today, April 7th 2022, I felt called to revive this blog called Crossing the Jordan. I started this blog in August of 2020, when God called me to write His blueprint upon my life. Since this time, I have learned many things.What does Crossing the Jordan mean?
America’s first self-sustainable-Agri-hood
January 17, 2022
This is another piece of the blueprint that I see happening on the land God has promised. I see neighborhoods joining together to help one another.
In Detroit, Michigan, “the first sustainable urban agrihood” in the U.S. centers around an edible garden, with easily accessible, affordable produce offered to neighborhood residents and the community. Each year, this urban farm provides fresh, free produce to 2,000 households within two square miles of the farm. They also supply food to local markets, restaurants, and food pantries.
The concept of agrihoods isn’t new, the Urban Land Institute estimated that about 200 agrihoods had been or were under construction across the U.S. but this agrihood is unique because it’s the first truly urban agrihood. It plans to operate in a sustainable way and is more accessible than most other agrihoods. Agrihoods, also called agritopias or community-supported development, are an exciting concept because they create a remarkable improvement to the dominant food system.
They help tackle food insecurity and other community problems. They make it easy for people in low-income communities to get fresh, healthy food. And they give people a connection with the food they eat, the earth, and each other. The first sustainable urban agrihood, which recently debuted in Detroit, is the project of the Michigan Urban Farming Initiative, an all-volunteer nonprofit, which seeks to empower urban communities using sustainable agriculture.
The three-acre development has vacant land, along with occupied and abandoned homes centered around a two-acre urban garden, with more than 300 organic vegetable varieties, like lettuce, kale, and carrots, as well as a 200-tree fruit orchard, with apples, pears, plums, and cherries, a children’s sensory garden, and more.
The nonprofit is also working on other projects that go beyond farming, including:
Turning a long-vacant building into a community resource center, which will offer educational programs, event and meeting space for the neighborhood, a nonprofit incubator, and two commercial kitchens
Developing a healthy food cafe, and Restoring a home into student intern housing and an off-grid shipping container.
Other projects to make the place more sustainable include:
Installing solar panels, Converting a basement into a water harvesting cistern that will automatically irrigate the garden. A public composting toilet, and a retention pond made from the foundation of a blighted home to supply the farm with water.
Could Sustainable Agrihoods Work In Other Urban Areas?
In the U.S., food travels 25% farther than it traveled about 20 years ago. With all this travel, freshness suffers and so does the environment. Even worse, some urban areas become food deserts. But more and more people are seeking out locally grown food, so communities that solve this problem in a sustainable way could make a big difference.
With its agrihood in Detroit, the Michigan Urban Farming Initiative is rethinking how urban spaces are developed and redefining what life in an urban environment looks like.
And perhaps other communities will look to this agrihood as a model to increase healthy, local food and to solve community problems, like hunger and access to fresh food, all while giving people a greater sense of community and happiness, creating more sustainability for cities, and improving our food system.
Could fresh, healthy, affordable food be the future of urban neighborhood development?

Limitless Kingdom of God - PART TWO - 3-5-2021
The kingdom of God is where there are unlimited resources. Where there is no lack, no time restraints, or issues with distance. Most believers can believe this for heaven, but not so much here on earth.
If you are interested, the next step is to step out into the deep. What does that look like? The look is very unfamiliar. Just step out in faith trusting the Father to catch you if you have made an incorrect decision. You will not make the wrong decision because your act of faith has pleased the Father. Faith is spelled r-i-s-k. It is where joy is found, and life is lived. What do you have to lose but the mundane?
Years ago someone said to me, “Gary you press the envelope.” Then the Father said to me, “There is no envelope.” He had already told me to go where no man has ever gone. That is my call. What is yours? Are you being obedient to it? If your calling is not bigger than you, then I would surely question if it is from the Lord.
How can we fulfill our calling if we stay in the shallows? Deep calls unto deep, launch out, throw your cares to the wind. The Father holds the wind. Will we hold onto our life and try and save it? Save it for what? Will we hold onto a puny morsel or exchange it for a limitless supply of more than enough? Only when we give it up to Him will we be free in Him and possess everything. It is the Father’s good pleasure to give us the kingdom (See Luke 12:32).
As a new Christian, Robin Bullock’s family was hungry and all he had was ten dollars. The Lord said, “I can’t give you more till you use what you have.” They went to a fast-food restaurant and bought hot dogs. Before he got home, he had twenty dollars.
It takes more faith to spend money than to save money. Daily bread is just that, daily. “So, what’s in your wallet?” The loaves and the fish await!
In January 2016, the Lord directed us to go out of Naples, but He gave us no destination. He had done this before. We stopped in Tampa at a motel having no idea what to do or where to go. It was “season” in Florida, so the rates were high.
While staying there, our brother Kevin got a word for us. The Lord said, "Tell them to wait I am coming. It’s part of their training, it’s part of their training, it’s part of their training; it’s a very important part of their training…” The impression Kevin got was this was a sacred time between us and the Lord.
We got three other words from the Lord telling us to wait. Two words to rest, one word to invest, and one word to lean not to my own understanding and one word saying this was the end of the road.
We lived there for thirty days till all our money was gone except for just enough for food and gas. As we headed back to Naples, Sandy and I prayed that the Lord would restore the money we had before we left Naples on a trip that made no sense to us, but we were obedient to do as He said. By the time we arrived back in Naples, the Lord had put more than double back into our account. We have walked with the Lord over forty-one years. We can give testimony of hundreds of times the Lord has done amazing last minute “come throughs” for us. Each time the test comes with, “Will you trust me now?”
If you want for yourself what you have just read, even though you may be saying, “Yes but!” you are ready and have enough to take the next step. 2 Cor 8:12 “For if there is first a willing mind, it is accepted according to what one has, and not according to what he does not have”. Our willing mind is enough when we step out on the word. The Father’s word to us is always “Come”. Each step we take is rewarded by more of Him and the kingdom. Enoch kept stepping toward Him because of a willing mind and He walked right into heaven. The Father gave an invitation to John on the Isle of Patmos. It was “Come up here”. He did, because first, he had a willing mind.
We walk this walk so others can, we walk this walk so others don’t have to. We walk this walk to please the Father. Oh, what joy I have when I know the Father is pleased!
The Father has taught us His resources will never run out. He has taught me that I will not die, so time means nothing. We will have time to do everything the Father wants us to do.
Now I wait for the testimony of “distance meaning nothing”. I wait to be translated to places I have never been before. I have already experienced this in dreams not knowing whether I went there physically or not. I gave a testimony about having a dream and going to Tampa in the dream. “The Lord said, “Why do you think it was a dream?” There is a limitless kingdom for all the Fathers kids here on earth, which is just a warmup for our future.
Gary Gay 3-5-2021
All scripture NKJV
Time, distance, and resources are irrelevant in the kingdom.
Time: There is no time in the kingdom. Things are measured by events, not by time. Events will never run out either.
Distance: Travel is done from one place to another, not in time, because there is no time. You are just there. As you think it, it will be. “As a man thinks in his heart so he is.”
In the kingdom you can be in the past, present or the future. Whenever you jump into the invisible realm of the kingdom you will always be where you are to be. You can never mess up or be out of line.
Resources: We often equate resources to money or money to resources. Money is the life blood of the world system. “Money is the engine that powers the systems. The systems would not exist without it nor would they even want to.”
When Jesus fed the five thousand, did the people need money or food? We use money because it is how we count, the way we keep score. It is our chips in the pot.
Money is only good in the eyes that value it. The world system must keep focus and thought on it to make us think it has value. Otherwise, it loses its value, and the life blood of the world system starts to die when we realize we don’t need it.
When in the kingdom, don’t count your money because it does not count any more. It only counts if you count on it.
The Lord has taught us, He will meet our needs. He may just bring it, or He will provide money to buy it. Either way He is the supplier. I have been testing these aspects of the kingdom over and over. The bottom line is, I never run out of anything I need. A few examples I have tested: I know this may offend some, but this is the way the kingdom works. It matters not the amount of money I spend on something when I am in Him. If I spend ten dollars or twenty dollars on a steak, it matters not. If I eat at The Capital Grill or Five Guys, it matters not. If I pay twelve dollars or thirty dollars for a bottle of wine, it matters not in the kingdom. In the kingdom we are free in Him. We have no money of our own, we only spend the Father’s money.
I can feel the religious spirits rise up against what I just said, but that is ok, because I am free of those spirits now. I spent much of my Christian walk cowering to those suckers. They suck the abundant life out of us. Note: Religious spirits cannot enter the kingdom of God because there is no life in them other than what they can steal. They only produce death.
Matt 6:33 But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.
Ps 23:1The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want (Hebrew word, lack).
Money is used to buy material things, but it cannot buy spiritual things.
When the wealth of the wicked is bestowed on us, and it will surely come, it will be a test to see if we can be trusted with it. God’s children must be tested with abundance. Will our heart be faithful toward Him, or will we start depending on earthly resources? The test is a matter of the heart.
Many years ago the Lord told me, “You can do anything you want as long as you do it in Me.” I did not understand that when He said it, but I am learning and enjoying the journey. It is limitless and free because our Lord has already paid for it all!
On 10-14-2020 I wrote an article, Kingdom Economics. In it I explain, Jesus never used money. He is our model. Before He returns for us, He will teach us how to live just like He did.
Numerous times I have pointed to the article, This Process by Kevin Huston 10-8-2013. “This whole process is about listening to Me, hearing Me, and obeying Me. The financial resources to come will mean something for a time, but a time is coming afterwards where these resources won't mean a thing. The only thing left will be My voice and My direction for those who are trained.”
Bottom line of this article, Limitless Kingdom of God, is we will soon cup our hands and speak into existence what we and others need.
Gary Gay 2-27-2021
All scripture NKJV unless stated
What does God mean when He tells us to live a life not of this world?
John 15:19 - If you were of the world, the world would love you as its own; but because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you.
John 17:14 - I have given them your word, and the world has hated them because they are not of the world, just as I am not of the world.
John 17:16 - They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world.
John 18:36 - Jesus answered, “My kingdom is not of this world. If my kingdom were of this world, my servants would have been fighting, that I might not be delivered over to the Jews. But my kingdom is not from the world.”
1 John 2:15-17 - Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world—the desires of the flesh and the desires of the eyes and pride of life[c]—is not from the Father but is from the world. And the world is passing away along with its desires, but whoever does the will of God abides forever.
1 John 4:4 - Little children, you are from God and have overcome them, for he who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.
1 John 5:19 - We know that we are from God, and the whole world lies in the power of the evil one.
Romans 12:2 - Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.
There are a plethora of verses here >>> www.openbible.info/topics/not_of_this_world
God does not want us to become spotted, contaminated, and tainted by the bad and evil things of this world. The only way that we can keep ourselves from this world is not to get too deep and friendly with the ways of this world.
God says "I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live; that you may love the Lord your God, that you may obey His voice, and that you may cling to Him, for He is your life and the length of your days” Deuteronomy 30:19
Many believers have been seduced into crossing over into some of these carnal and fleshly realms as a result of the seductive and persuasive influence of some of their co-workers or schoolmates. God the Father could not make things any more clear and plain with the revelation that He is giving us in that we are to be in the world, but not of the world. Remember, stay on your side of the fence in your walk with the Lord. Many great men and women of God have lost their calls and divine destinies because they violated this basic fundamental revelation.

a Rainbow of Promise
Whenever the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and all living creatures of every kind on the earth. God said to Noah, "This is the sign of the covenant I have established between me and all life on the earth." God put the rainbow in the sky as the sign of his promise that he would never again destroy the earth with a flood. A rainbow promises better times to come, after the great flood it was a sign that people could go forth and multiply without fear of another calamitous drowning. The colors of the rainbow are red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet.
You think you own whatever land you land on
The earth is just a dead thing you can claim
But I know every rock and tree and creature
Has a life, has a spirit, has a name
You think the only people who are people
Are the people who look and think like you
But if you walk the footsteps of a stranger
You'll learn things you never knew you never knew
Have you ever heard the wolf cry to the blue corn moon
Or asked the grinning bobcat why he grinned?
Can you sing with all the voices of the mountain?
Can you paint with all the colors of the wind?
Come run the hidden pine trails of the forest
Come taste the sun-sweet berries of the earth
Come roll in all the riches all around you
And for once, never wonder what they're worth
The rainstorm and the river are my brothers
The heron and the otter are my friends
And we are all connected to each other,
In a circle, in a hoop that never ends
Have you ever heard the wolf cry to the blue corn moon
Or let the eagle tell you where he's been
Can you sing with all the voices of the mountain?
Can you paint with all the colors of the wind
How high does the sycamore grow?
If you cut it down, then you'll never know
And you'll never hear the wolf cry to the blue corn moon
For whether we are white or copper-skinned
We need to sing with all the voices of the mountain
Need to paint with all the colors of the wind
You can own the earth and still
All you'll own is earth until
You can paint with all the colors of the wind
Note: Heart dreams and night dreams are sometimes connected. They often complement one another. For those who do not have night dreams, be not concerned. The dreams God has put in your heart will be more than enough to carry you into the "Outer rings". However, "You will need to expand your understanding of what is possible for those who believe." Doug Addison Believing while in Christ Jesus is the "Big Key" that unlocks everything to us.
In addition, our spirit man has seen all that we are going through before the creation of the world (See Job 38:21). How many times have we said, "Wow, I knew that"! Our spirit man is our knower; he "has been there and done that." We (our mind) often think differently than our spirit because our mind has not been renewed yet. It wars against our spirit, our knower. Our knower is where our heart dreams are stored for safekeeping. Proverbs 4:23 "Keep your heart with all diligence, For out of it spring the issues of life."
The Lord said to me, “Dream with those you love, and they will love you more
A friend recently sent me this note after she heard my take on dreams. (Used with permission) "Gary - These words make me cry. This is me. I know this about no ceiling but have doubted my dreaming bigger than I am because I don't know many who think this way. I have conversations with God about it and have seen His doors open for me continually, but I feel foolish talking to others about it, so I usually don't. My life is moving so fast - and I don't find myself at a crossroad now and then but many crossroads all the time. It is exciting - the weird thing about it is that in some ways it is scary with a beautiful, secure peace surrounding me. I get impatient. I want to "move" into ...it...one of my dreams, all of my dreams! I have wanted to talk with you about it, but I don't even know what I would say!"
To my friend I say, "It has to be a little scary or it would be boring. The scary is good because it draws us closer to Him, which is where He is and where we want to be anyway. He uses these heart dreams to draw us into Him, (the safe place). As He told my friend Kevin, "Come closer, keep coming, keep coming!" The Father has designed us not to fail. He greases the skids at every turn with road signs that say, "Only Believe!" Believe what He says. He told me, "He will take us at our word if we take Him at His."
I believe my friend is expressing what many of us have thought but are afraid to share. Many are afraid to dream with their heart, afraid of being disappointed or rejected. When Jesus said, "Do not cast your pearls before swine" He is talking about sharing what is precious and holy to you with those who do not care. Not everybody is going to care; they do not have that capacity. They cannot give something they have never received. People with little or no heart dreams seldom want to hear about others dreams. Put no expectations on anyone. Pray their heart dreams will be revealed to them.
I have stretched myself as far as I can go for now, but I believe God will grant me greater dimensions. After all, the kingdom is limitless. The Lord told me in 2000, "Go where no man has ever gone." This is a big part of my calling and I love it.
One of the great ways to love is to share your dreams with one another. There is a warning label on all dream boxes, "Handle with love and care." Never disrespect someone's dreams, which would be disrespecting them. Help one another nurture bigger dreams.
Speak life into your dreams and the dreams of others. Call forth resurrection power to come and bring life to those things that are deadRomans 4:17-18 "God, who gives life to the dead and calls those things which do not exist as though they did; 18 who, contrary to hope, in hope believed,"
Note: There is no ceiling when we are in Christ Jesus and believe!

We do not have to Die
John 11:20-27 Now Martha, as soon as she heard that Jesus was coming, went and met Him, but Mary was sitting in the house. 21 Now Martha said to Jesus, "Lord, if You had been here, my brother would not have died. 22 But even now I know that whatever You ask of God, God will give You."
23 Jesus said to her, "Your brother will rise again."
24 Martha said to Him," I know that he will rise again in the resurrection at the last day."
25 Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live. 26 And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die. Do you believe this?"
27 She said to Him, "Yes, Lord, I believe that You are the Christ, the Son of God, who is to come into the world." NKJV
The Lord said to our friend Jennifer Hogue," There is a difference between believing you could live forever and knowing you won’t die. I want to move you into the latter.”
7-18-06, the Lord gave me this word; "I Am everlasting, to everlasting life; nothing that is in Me can die! Life prevails in Me and through Me. I Am He who maintains life, as life exist!
Proverbs 23:7 "For as he thinks in his heart, so is he." NKJV Can we believe in our heart we will not die?
John 10:10 The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly. Abundant life does not have death in it.
Note: If we have, a willing mind that is the first step to believing. Our job is not to figure it out our job is to believe. We do not understand His word first then believe. We must believe (faith) first then we will understand. That is how we came to Christ.
A Word for Gary Gay: Signs & Wonders by Tom Bieda 11-11-2004
"You are My servant; I hold a special, a special place for you, deep in My heart.
You have been loyal and faithful to what I called you to do.
Now a new time has come. Former things are passing away.
Signs and wonders, miracles that cannot be explained away:
These are of the new season; this season has come.
Even now, you have been a part of them.
Stretch forth your hand and know that I can and speak those things that are not as though they are and watch them come to pass.
For I bring you a new generation, a generation that will not pass away."
He promised me the generation He is sending to me "will not pass away." This means they are not going to die off like those that perished in the wilderness. Because the generation He is raising up will enter His REST.
1 Corinthians 15:51 I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep (die).
1 Corinthians 15:26 The last enemy to be destroyed is death.
"There will be a generation that will not die physically. Those who are alive, at the coming of the Lord; there will also be many in these last days who, like Enoch of old will be translated." Neville Johnson
Hebrews 4:1-3 Therefore, since a promise remains of entering His rest, let us fear lest any of you seem to have come short of it. 2 For indeed the gospel was preached to us as well as to them; but the word which they heard did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in those who heard it. 3 For we who have believed do enter that rest, as He has said:" NKJV Hebrew 4 explains the "Rest" we are to enter into.
The Lord told me, on 1-25-18, "He is in us and we are in Him. When we enter into His rest, He has a place to rest His head in us! He does not lay His head where there is no rest.
Justin Paul Abraham said, "The highest level of faith is rest. As we rest in Him, He rests in us. We abide in Him He abides in us."
"His Rest", was the title of the message I brought on 1-25-18 in Lake Placid, FL when we started this new journey on 1-22-18. Little did I know I was teaching about the journey upon which we would embark. That message was the foundation for this message "We do not have to Die."
Hebrews 9:27-28 And as it is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgment, 28 so Christ was offered once to bear the sins of many. NKJV
We, who have been born again, have already died. When we were baptized into Christ, we also die with Christ. Now we also have been resurrected with Christ for He is the Resurrection. We do not have to die again! Now that is GOOD NEWS! When I baptize someone--- I say, "Buried with Christ in death, raised to walk in a whole new life."
It is no wonder the enemy has fought this GOOD NEWS message so hard in so many ways. His intent is to kill us. Remember the World System is satan's system designed and operated by him. John 10:10 "The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I (Jesus) have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly." NKJV
Colossians 3:3 For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God.
We died with Christ, we were buried with Christ, we were resurrected with Christ, and we live, move, and have our being in Christ. We do not have to die again!
The Lord said to me, "Life has no end, death has an end and it is never our friend."
Hebrews 2:8-9 But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels, for the suffering of death crowned with glory and honor, that He, by the grace of God, might taste death for everyone.
Romans 8:1-11 There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit. 2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death. 3 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, 4 that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit. 5 For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit. 6 For to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. 7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God; for it is not subject to the law of God, nor indeed can be. 8 So then, those who are in the flesh cannot please God.
9 But you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you. Now if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he is not His. 10 And if Christ is in you, the body is dead because of sin, but the Spirit is life because of righteousness. 11 But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you. NKJV
Evidence that John did not die:
John 13:23-25 Now there was leaning on Jesus' bosom one of His disciples, whom Jesus loved. 24 Simon Peter therefore motioned to him to ask who it was of whom He spoke.
25 Then, leaning back on Jesus' breast, he said to Him, "Lord, who is it?" NKJV
The above scripture refers to John who was at rest on Jesus' bosom. John was the disciple that was the closest to Jesus throughout the gospels. He had intimacy with Jesus, which is the foundation for entering into the promises of God.
John 21:20-23 Then Peter, turning around, saw the disciple whom Jesus loved following, who also had leaned on His breast at the supper, and said, "Lord, who is the one who betrays You?" 21 Peter, seeing him, said to Jesus, "But Lord, what about this man?"
22 Jesus said to him, "If I will that he remain till I come, what is that to you? You follow Me."
23 Then this saying went out among the brethren that this disciple would not die. Yet Jesus did not say to him that he would not die, but, "If I will that he remain till I come, what is that to you?" Here is a major clue. Jesus did not say John would or would not die. However, Jesus puts this clue in plain sight by the way He answered Peter.
Revelation 10:11 and he said to me, "You (John) must prophesy again about many peoples, nations, tongues, and kings." John has not done this yet. However, the time is coming when he will.
In addition to the aforementioned verses, there is no evidence that John died. After they tried to kill him by boiling him in oil, John was banished to the Isle of Patmos. This is where he wrote the Book of Revelation.
There are verses giving evidence that we can live and not die and the aging process reversed for some. I have had many prophetic dreams about Sandy and me that confirm this.
May I suggest you start your own faith folder of verses so your faith, trust and rest can increase by meditating on them. Verses will start to jump out at you as you ask for revelation and evidence. Because you have read this word and you are born again, the Lord will confirm this word if you ask.
His Rest is a precondition of not having to die.
A few months back the Lord began expanding the revelation of the crossing into the “Promise land.” Joshua 3. There is an amazing teaching in this chapter. The point is; the last requirement for God’s people before we receive the promises of God (the Promised Land) is to enter into His rest.
Joshua 3:13 "And it shall come to pass, as soon as the soles of the feet of the priests who bear the ark of the LORD, the Lord of all the earth, shall rest in the waters of the Jordan, that the waters of the Jordan shall be cut off, the waters that come down from upstream, and they shall stand as a heap." NKJV
As the Priest carrying the Presence of God, (represents born again believers), stepped into the turbulence of the water carrying the presence of God, they were at rest. Meaning the turbulence of the situation (overflowing river) did not disturb them. John 16:33 "In the world you will have tribulation; (turbulence) but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world." NKJV He has overcome the world and so can we, by entering into His REST!
He is our rest! In 2008 Feb 29, Leap year day we started our journey, for the past 10 years, of moving like the children of Israel did from placed to place. He said repeatedly to me for three days, "Foxes have holes and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay His head." (See Matthew 8:20) I did not understand what he meant at the time. On 1-25-18, He told me what He meant 10 years ago. "He is in us and we are in Him. When we enter into His rest, He has a place to rest His head in us! He does not lay His head where there is no rest.
