A reflection.

While out walking one morning my meditation went like this.
At 2 years of age my grandmother [Dad’s mum] taught me the song, Jesus loves me this I know for the Bible tell me so.

At 14 I went to a Bible class camp and knew I needed something but did not know what.
A leader prayed I would find what I needed.

At 16 I heard a message that said to be a Christian I needed to ask Jesus into my life, the preacher read me John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life and I said yes to Jesus.
Not long after I was baptised.

Seven years later I knew I had no assurance in my inner being that if I died I was going straight to be with Jesus.
Through reading John 1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: I was totally filled with the love joy and piece of Father God.

At 39 after spending 11 years in Children’s youth ministry I was challenged as to what place I gave in my life to the Holy Spirit and invited Him to take control.
The first thing after that was, I was given a verse out of the Bible,
1 Peter 3:7 Likewise, ye husbands, dwell with them according to knowledge, giving honour unto the wife, as unto the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life; that your prayers be not hindered.
This brought me to the understanding that to walk in the blessing of the Godhead as a married man I was responsible to make sure my wife was secure.

The first message I preached was “How long is it since the Lord spoke to you?” which got me into a lot of trouble.
Those I fellowshipped with only believed that God had the Bible written and all one needed to do was read and obey.
The second message I preached was about forgiveness and while sharing said this message would go around the world.
That was 35 years ago and in that time I have visited 34 countries been out of NZ well over a 100 times sharing with those who desire to know how to forgive and hear Jesus, voice.
In addition there are 8 DVD messages, a web site called forgiveit.com plus contact people through Email, Skype and Face Book.

The message on forgiveness has gone around the world, first by me taking it, then by video and finally on DVD. There are thousands of copies in many nations including China.

My life to day is one of hearing Jesus voice as Jesus said we could
[John 10:27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me].
Whatever He tells me I seek to walk in obedience and have a living relationship with the Godhead and with people.

The 3 most important things are to know how much Father God loves us, deal with unbelief, and deal with all judgments which destroy relationships and be a channel letting the blessing of Father God flow through those who will receive from Him.
