Real life story of a broken life of a soldier after a war, who suffered from PTSD and got healed and delivered by God’s power. He Recovered a lost identity. Fragment of a bigger video “Becoming Glorious” posted below.
Normally, one of the first things you learn when studying a foreign language is the menu of that country. Ordering food is a basic necessity of life. In much the same way, the Bible is the menu of the Holy Spirit and the explanation of his language. The Bible not only tells us the various ways in which the Holy Spirit will speak to us, it also tells us the very things we must eat if we are to live. And it warns us of spiritual poisons. No one who purposely avoids the Bible is ever going to hear God reliably and consistently.
There are people, however, who devote themselves diligently to Bible study and are still spiritually malnourished. This frequently happens in environments where people make Bible study an end in itself. They are like people who study a menu with great precision and can tell you every detail about it: when it was first written, how it has changed over the years, how each dish is prepared, how it ought to be served, which food should come first–even why the chef has organized the menu in its present order. Perhaps they even went to schools whose major goal was to explain menus. When they graduated, the ones who were the best at explaining menus were able to build the biggest “menu clubs” where many people meet regularly just to hear a new and inspiring explanation of the menu. Yet no one grows strong from an explanation of the menu or even from first-hand study of a menu. Only those who order from the menu and eat grow strong. Don’t mistake the menu for the meal.
Jesus is the Bread from heaven. If our Bible study does not lead us to experience Jesus Christ, then it is leading us to spiritual malnutrition. The Bible is the menu meant to lead us to experience God in every facet of out lives. If we make Bible study our goal, we will end up just like the Pharisees who searched the Scriptures diligently but never came to Christ (John 5:39)1. They studied the menu regularly and religiously. But the never ordered. Never tasted. And that was both the irony and the tragedy. So close to the menu, yet so far from the meal.http://noelrt.com/ - - In order to get to the home page please either click on the Header "Help from above" or on this text
I came back from a couple of trips overseas just recently as most of you have heard. I just came back from India. We just had a wonderful time over there. I took a team over there from the States. There has been a number of people who said, I just want to go with you overseas. I wasn’t sure how that would work out because when I go it’s usually not to do work, its usually to preach the Gospel. Usually we don’t need more than one or two preachers, so I never saw a good opportunity for that until this trip to India. So, I said, we’ll take a few of these people who’ve been asking me to go along. And, this ministry that I work with over there, formed some evangelistic teams that would go out into the villages, while I was holding a pastor’s conference. We really had a good time. India is so unusual, so unlike any other place on the face of the earth. You have to be there to grasp how odd, how weird and how different this place really is. It is so different from American culture, it is hard to fathom.

“A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones” (Proverbs 17:22)
Laughter does not help you on the job site tomorrow morning. Do you know why people are looking forward for weekend? Because during the week they don’t have joy.
God is happy every day. In His presence is fulness of joy (Psalm 16:11). How to find real joy and maintain it? God wants you to have a continual feast. It’s available.

“…He began to say unto His disciples first of all, Beware ye of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy” (Luke 12:1). It is a put on. It is not right. It looks religious, but it is not what God is looking for. You can be ever so close to what God wants you to be, and still not be what God wants you to be; when we try to put on something that we are not – this is hypocrisy. Sometimes when you are fighting a disease and believe for healing, and talk to a person who is critical about it and you don’t tell him about what is going on – I am not talking about this case. I am talking about normal run of character. Jesus said to us to be aware of the hypocrisy, which is leaven of the Pharisee, it will leaven you if you don’t watch.
If you are in the flesh you have to get to work emotions up. Because all week long you are dragging by them. If it is all emotions you will be down next day.
If you are not excommunicated from the group that you used to belong to, then what are you be a part of? Who are you trying to please and bring glory to? “These words spake his parents, because they feared the Jews: for the Jews had agreed already, that if any man did confess that he was Christ, he should be put out of the synagogue.” (John 9:22)
Here is almighty God made a great miracle for their son, but they are afraid. The Lord put some pressure on them.When I had a baptism of the Holy Ghost, I lost fellowship with most of my family. We need to go outside the temple following Jesus.
Hebrews 13:12-13: 12 Wherefore Jesus also, that he might sanctify the people with his own blood, suffered without the gate. 13 Let us go forth therefore unto him without the camp, bearing his reproach.
We don’t want to lose fellowship. Fear keeps people inside. To go outside the camp means to go outside the walls of the church. 1 Peter 4:12-14: 12 Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial [excommunication – K.C.] which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you: 13 But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ’s sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy. 14 If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye; for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you: on their part he is evil spoken of, but on your part he is glorified.
You know why some of you don’t have joy? You still try to get inside those walls.
Pastor Kevin Campbell
1 Now therefore perform the doing of it; that as there was a readiness to will, so there may be a performance also out of that which ye have. 12 For if there be first a willing mind, it is accepted according to that a man hath, and not according to that he hath not. 13 For I mean not that other men be eased, and ye burdened: 14 But by an equality, that now at this time your abundance may be a supply for their want, that their abundance also may be a supply for your want: that there may be equality: 15 As it is written, He that had gathered much had nothing over; and he that had gathered little had no lack. (2 Corinthians 8:11).Giving is what the Lord wants us to be involved in. He said, “I want to start giving your way out of problems.” Giving has law behind it. Everything God does has a law behind it. The law is dead without the spirit until the spirit activates it. The only way you can fulfill the law of giving is with the Holy Spirit. He will give you life to do it.Pastor Kevin Campbell
There are different seeds – you give condemnation, in comes back to you, you give judgment, it comes back to you, you give forgiveness, it comes back to you. There are multitudes of people in nursing home today do not receive mercy because they never gave mercy. Good side of it – you start giving mercy today in order to reap it later.
Giving is a part of God’s kingdom. God is a giver. He wants you to succeed.
What if you give and they are dishonest? Mathew 7: 6 “Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you.”
It’s useless to try to save somebody’s soul if your own soul is a problem.

Приготовление к будущему. 4
We need to prepare yourself and your children to eat less, because it may not be enough food very soon. Waste cannot be allowed. Learn how to control your appetite, how to multiply food. Get rid of gossiping and slandering tongue. Some people wonder why somebody always comes against them. It is because you constantly come against others.
Мы должны подготовить себя и своих детей, научите их есть меньше, потому что, возможно, очень скоро будет недостаточно пищи. Не позволяйте им выбрасывать пищу. Научитесь управлять своим аппетитом, научитесь умножать пищу. Избавьтесь от сплетничания и клеветнического языка. Некоторые люди задаются вопросом, почему кто-то всегда выступает против них. Это происходит потому, что вы сами постоянно выступаете против других, распускаете сплетни и вредите им своим языком.
Persecution comes; it is automatic with receiving the truth. We must be able to face all persecution in order to be able to overcome. “Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also.” (John 15:20)
Truth will be the most resisted thing in the future.
Start preparing for not being offended. You have to make a decision not to be offended.
People who are focused on eschatology1 prepare only to what they believe and what they been taught about the end of the world. If they are not corrected now they won’t have the faith to overcome in the future. They talk about rapture of the church, 10 toes in the book of Daniel, pre-tribulation, on and on. They study only end time events and prophetic. This causes them to be unstable.
I believe many people will walk away from the Lord and perish in the days to come because of wrong teaching in this area. They can tell you all about the end of the world, but they are not ready to face it. I meet in prison a lot of people like that. They can tell you a lot about Revelation and Daniel, but they can’t tell you anything about good understanding and management, how to make it in the world we live in today. They have prophetic things figured out. I don’t ask for prophetic information, it just comes. The Lord told me one time, “Don’t just spend all your time in Revelation and Daniel, there is the whole Bible you need to know.” Eschatology is important, but you can’t get it out of balance.
Люди, которые сосредоточены на эсхатологии2 готовятся только к тому, чему они верят и чему их научили о конце мира. Если эти люди не исправятся теперь, у них не будет веры, чтобы победить в будущем. Эти люди только изучают события времени конца и пророчества: восхищение церкви, 10 пальцев на ногах в книге Даниила, время скорби и т.д. Это делает их нестабильными. Полагаю, что многие уйдут от Бога и погибнут в последние дни из-за неправильного учения в этой области. Они могут сказать вам всё о конце мира, но они не готовы выстоять в это время. Я встречаю в тюрьме много таких заключенных. Они могут рассказать вам очень много об Откровении и Даниила, но они ничего не могут сказать о том, как распоряжаться своей жизнью, как вести себя в мире, в котором мы живем сегодня. Они поглощены пророческими вещами. Я не прошу у Бога пророческую информацию, она просто приходит. Бог однажды сказал мне : “Не проводи все время в книгах Откровения и Даниила: есть целая Библия, которую ты должен знать.” Эсхатология важна, но нельзя непропорционально раздувать ее.http://noelrt.com/ - - In order to get to the home page please either click on the Header "Help from above" or on this text
God does not have to have a lot of people to accomplish His purpose, as in case with Gideon. Faith is based on wisdom. You cannot base faith on stupidity. Nature itself teaches us to be ready at all times. The earth is shaking, things are getting worse. People see it happening, but they say, “It is not happening.”
God did not remove Noah out of the hard times, He showed Him how to live through it. God delivered three Hebrew boys in the fire. Continue reading Preparing for the Future. 1.
“10 Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me. 11 Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me. 12 Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit.” (Psalm 51)
The word “create” also means “to cut down”. It means something needs to come down. We want a clean heart without ax, just keep things the way they are. This is not your, but God’s habitation.
It is important for us to examine our hearts sometimes. “Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God” (Matthew 5:8).
Does honesty, reliability, courage, love have to do with clean heart?
Pastor Kevin Campbell
Our hearts have to be prepared. How?
#1. Guarding the flame in your life. How is your fire burning? You need to add things to it to keep is up. If you stop adding the fire will go out. He told them to take olives, beat them in order to get oil out of them. If you are going to get anything out of the Word of God, you need to get into it, to pound it, to get involved. Don’t just get olives, don’t just read the Word, get the oil out of it. Add to your life things that will burn. All of us can quote certain Scriptures. You need to get oil out of it. You have to have your lamp full if you want to get through the dark times.
#2. Get rid of evil heart of unbelief. Traditions of men can be an evil heart of unbelief.
