Moment Worth Remembering---Time for Another Anything Goes Challenge at our Neighborhood---613 Avenue Create!

Hello everyone...This is quite a late post as I had a busy Sunday.  Today is also Father's Day so, I would like to greet my wonderful hubby, Joseph, "Happy Father's Day."  We had a great day time in the Church learning about the Holy Ghost Healthcare. What was instilled in my mind by the message delivered by our Pastor today was that "There's no incurable disease in the Kingdom of God."  Jesus, in His ministry here on earth, healed every manner of diseases.  The following are scripture verses that proves this fact:

"Jesus went throughout Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom, and healing every disease and sickness among the people." (Matthew 4:23)

"Aware of this, Jesus withdrew from that place. A large crowd followed him, and he healed all who were ill."  (Matthew 12:15)

"When Jesus landed and saw a large crowd, he had compassion on them and healed their sick." (Matthew 14:14)

"One day Jesus was teaching, and Pharisees and teachers of the law were sitting there. They had come from every village of Galilee and from Judea and Jerusalem. And the power of the Lord was with Jesus to heal the sick." (Luke 5:17)

"He went down with them and stood on a level place. A large crowd of his disciples was there and a great number of people from all over Judea, from Jerusalem, and from the coastal region around Tyre and Sidon, who had come to hear him and to be healed of their diseases. Those troubled by impure spirits were cured, and the people all tried to touch him, because power was coming from him and healing them all." (Luke 6:17-19)

"But the crowds learned about it and followed him. He welcomed them and spoke to them about the kingdom of God, and healed those who needed healing." (Luke 9:11)

Now, in all these verses, we saw Jesus and His Power (Holy Spirit) working together to heal everyone in need of healing. Yet, we must also understand what came first before healing ever took place.  The fact that people came and received it was because THEY BELIEVED first in the one Who gave them healing. Where there was unbelief, Jesus was unable to perform many miracles as He was rejected in his own town of Nazareth as accounted in Matthew 13:56-58 which says, "Aren’t all his sisters with us? Where then did this man get all these things? And they took offense at him.  But Jesus said to them, “A prophet is not without honor except in his own town and in his own home. And he did not do many miracles there because of their lack of faith."  You see, it is God's will for us to be healed from all manners of sickness and diseases. That is why He died on the Cross, that we can be free from all bondage of the enemy (Devil).  The scripture declares in Isaiah 53:5, "But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed." When Jesus Christ ascended into Heaven, Hes sent us His Holy Spirit to dwell every believer.  He is literally "God with Us." The Holy Spirit only operated within the parameters of the finished work of Jesus Christ on the Cross.  Every promises of God that is fulfilled by the sacrifice of Jesus are delivered unto us by the the Holy Spirit. He is the very power that is released to every spoken Word of God.  The Bible declares in Hebrews 13:8:  "Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever." The way Jesus healed every man that believed in Him in His time, is the same way we are healed at our day and time.  It is solely by FAITH in Him.  So, from the common cold to the dreaded cancer, we have healing in the Name of Jesus.  He wanted us to be healed that He uses doctors and medicine to deliver His healing.  But understand that if all else fails, we can come to Him like the woman that touched the hem of His garment in Luke 8:40-49 that caused healing power to come out of Jesus, we can ask for the manifestation of healing in our mortal bodies.  Mark 9:23 says,"'If you can'?" said Jesus. "Everything is possible for one who believes."

Anyway, here's an inspiration card for our optional theme of "Someone Special (male)" at 613 Avenue Create.  One of our sponsors this week is Rick St. Dennis and I am happy to highlight one of his images called "Country Lane" which I colored with my Promaker/Prismacolor/Spectrum Noir markers.  My base card is a white CS measuring 5.5 inches square together with a white textured and olive green CS for panels and matting.  I used Distress Ink (Pumice Stone) to age the sides of the image, embossed using a Paper Studio embossing folder, added several brads and included a wonderful sentiment from Tim Holtz Artistry Collection.  Cards for male are always a challenge for many cardmakers but for me, I found out that simplicity with the right color selection is the key.
