God had promised to give that land (the one that flows with milk and honey) to His people. Moses almost had that prophecy fulfilled, but he gave more credit to what he heard from the 10 spies (bad report) than to what he had heard from the Lord.
“Then the LORD said to him, ‘This is the land of which I swore to give Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, saying, “I will give it to your descendants.” I have caused you to see it with your eyes, but you shall not cross over there.’” (Deuteronomy 34:4)
But with Joshua things were different. “Every place that the sole of your foot will tread upon I have given you, as I said to Moses” (Joshua 1:3). He believed in that prophecy!
No matter who you are or where you are from, the person you have become is a result of roots you have in your life that are linked to your past. Your roots determine who you are today.
The misconception that most people in the church have about this today is that, if you give your life to Jesus, then the roots linked to your past are irrelevant. When the truth is that these are still very much a part of your life.
As we were growing up, our parents, teachers, and mentors taught us positive things that are still very much a part of our lives right now. We still hold fast to values and teachings that we pass on to our children and those close to us that will indeed benefit them as well.
There was a man taking a morning walk on the beach. He saw that along with the morning tide came hundreds of starfish; when the tide receded, they were left behind, and with the morning sunrays, they would die.
The tide was fresh and the starfish were alive. The man took a few steps, picked one up and threw it into the water. He did that repeatedly.
Every day we see in magazines, newspapers and on the Internet guidelines on how to take care of our body. Types of diets, what is bad and what is good for the body, how to prevent diseases, etc.
I believe that following these recommendations is essential to avoid health problems and make the most of our body, which by the way is the temple of the Holy Spirit.
But little is spoken about how we should use our body parts to preserve our spiritual life, and this is exactly what I would like to share with you on the coming Wednesdays.
“For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts.” (Isaiah 55:9)
Worries, anxieties and fears are feelings that are generated by doubts.
It might not seem like it, but any one of them will obstruct, if not, delay any personal project.
The Holy Spirit has been with me, however, during the fifty years that I have been converted, I have never received His help as long as I showed worry, anxiety or fear.
Genesis of LIFE
In the beginning, God-the-Father created the heavens and the Earth;
He created them by only using a Word.

My experience with the Holy Spirit – 9
I received the Holy Spirit in the very first 21Days in March in 2011.
My experience indeed was WHAT A DAY, I can still remember the day as if it was yesterday, it was in the Humbling night (Night Vigil)when I received the Holy Spirit and on that day, I can say it was the best day of my life, no words to describe apart from the feelings the emotions and tears of joy inside and peace inside me, I left that place with the assurance of my Salvation and that the Holy Spirit came upon me”OH WHAT A DAY” I left different it was a great experience and everything about me changed from then onwards, the way I started thinking ,how I reacted to things, my inner self I became new, new person new Vanessa.
Image of Evil vs. Image of Good
Satan is a spirit.
He works with the words that come out of his children’s mouth;
These words cause doubt, fear, worries, incentive to do what is evil, horror; this is, they are statements aimed at bringing a person down.
These words and envious eyes are what they’re all about.
They complain about everything, cry about everything, criticize everything…
