Three Levels of Sanctification

_____________________________________________________________________________________________

Now let’s discuss in a little more detail the purging

process that we have to carry through to completion if

we’re going to walk in the fullness of God’s plan for our

lives.

costs-to-follow-more-not-to

In His wisdom, God overcame Satan and our flesh

nature by taking the understanding of our prayer

language away from our intellects so the Holy Spirit

could pray for us about fleshly areas of our lives that

we don’t necessarily want to get rid of. As the Holy

Spirit prays for us, He purges us on three levels: spirit,

soul, and body. That’s what the Bible is talking about in

Second Corinthians 7:1:

Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us

CLEANSE OURSELVES FROM ALL FILTHINESS OF THE

FLESH AND SPIRIT, perfecting holiness in the fear of

God.

When you start to pray in tongues, that sanctification

process starts immediately, beginning with filthiness of

the flesh. This refers to any habitually destructive thing

that is detrimental to the body, such as drinking,

smoking, chewing tobacco, etc. The Holy Spirit will help

you get rid of all those bad habits for you. Then, if you

will keep praying, He will bring revelation knowledge

that will aid in the sanctifying of your soul.

Image result for drinking smoking

Filthiness of the soul includes such things as hatred,

strife, selfish ambition, envy, self-exaltation,

manipulation, lying, and un-forgiveness. You won’t be

in your prayer closet long before it will become

impossible to keep praying in tongues without dealing

with these sinful strong-holds of the soul. Either you

will stop praying, or you’ll allow your new nature to go

ahead and purge those dead limbs out of your life.

YES…ITS ALL ABOUT ME

If you make it through the impasse that the

sanctification process can trigger in the realm of your

soulish emotions, the Holy Spirit will move on to help

you get free from filthiness of spirit. This refers to

incorrect belief or doctrine that keeps you from being

fully equipped with the power of God to fulfill your call.

pope-Devil

SEE TONGUES ARE NOT FOR TODAY

All three of these areas of sanctification overlap one

another, but the strongest purging takes place in this

area of incorrect beliefs. As God answers the mysteries

that you are praying out in the Holy Spirit’s

supernatural language, all of a sudden an awareness of

spiritual things begins to flood into your

understanding. Wrong believing, or filthiness of spirit,

begins to fall away.

The more of the mind of Christ you pray before the

Father, the more revelation knowledge the Holy Spirit

reveals to your spirit and the more roots of false

doctrine He destroys. He will not leave you stuck in the

mire of some wrong belief that has neutralized God’s

power in your life.

When I first prayed to the place where I began to be

purged from filthiness of spirit, I would go to meetings

where I’d know on the inside that the minister was

operating in the flesh.

People in the meeting would be shouting with

excitement and emotions, not knowing the difference

between the Spirit and the flesh. Before I was purged by

the Holy Spirit, I hadn’t known the difference either.

But now I was being protected by the Holy Spirit, who

had purged me of deception and wrong believing.

The Enemy’s Strategy: To Get You Out of Prayer!

_____________________________________________________________________________________________

One thing I can guarantee you: Just keep praying in the

Holy Ghost, and you’ll meet the ugly side of your

character. And the first thing the devil will attempt to

do is to get you out of prayer so your purging will stop.

e435c-depressed_28464974963929-2

Satan is in an all-out war to strip us of the benefits of

praying in tongues. It saddens me to see the many

casualties of that war. In many churches, groups of

people have started out praying with every good

intention of bringing revival to their city. But then so

many things go wrong that prayer quickly becomes the

last thing on their agenda.

WorkLife

Most Christians fall out of prayer long before enough

mortification has taken place to eliminate those things

in their lives that cause unrest and turmoil. They don’t

keep praying long enough to receive the strength to put

to death with finality every deed of the flesh that

hinders their walk with God.

When these believers fail to persevere through the

impasse, they interrupt the Holy Spirit’s commission to

purge everything out of them that can distract them

from the path of their divine call. They are left

vulnerable to the enemy’s attempts to lead them into

carnality and secondary vocations outside of God’s

perfect will.

PLEASUREBOAT5657390_20160816160852343_1_XLARGE

You see, the devil doesn’t mind if you go to church. He

doesn’t care if you join a singles or a couples group,

help in a program, or fellowship with other believers.

He just doesn’t want you pulling the spiritual wrestling

match over into an arena such as tongues that isn’t

governed by the emotionalism of the soulish realm. The

moment you do that, he begins to lose control, and you

become unmanageable.

sleeping in church

is it over yet

Remember what Ephesians 6:11 and 12 says:

Put on the whole Armour of God, that ye may be able to

stand against THE WILES OF THE DEVIL.

 

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against

principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the

darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in

high places.

Image result for wwe wrestlers

The word “wiles” in verse 11 denotes in roads of the

enemy into your life attained through deceit. And one

of the main methods the devil uses to gain entry into

your life is through the stronghold of emotionalism.

Image result for emotions

The devil will attempt to bring torment, worry, and fear

into your life. He loves to fill you so full of cares that

you sink into a full-blown case of depression.

Image result for depression

So when you hit an impasse in prayer and your nerves

seem to be strung out to the breaking point, remember

this: It is only the wiles of the enemy. He doesn’t want

you to fight him through the help of the Holy Spirit. He

wants you to stop praying in tongues.

2f2fe-romans8-26

So keep on praying. Some of the most productive

seasons of prayer are those in which the devil pulls

every emotional trick he can think of to make you stop

praying, but you continue to persevere.

LARRY HERE: I CAN ATTEST TO IMPASSES IN PRAYER AND THEY ARE AS REAL AS

THE SUN COMING UP TOMORROW MORNING, ALL OF A SUDDEN YOU JUST

BECAUSE OF ALL THE DISTRACTIONS EMOTIONALLY GOING ON AROUND YOU,

THEN ITS THE FIGHT TO GET BACK INTO PRAYER, ITS VERY REAL AND NOT MANY

EVER PERSEVERE TO THE POINT OF GOING FROM JUST THE NEXT LEVEL, BUT TO

THE NEXT DIMENSION.

 

SO WHEN WE REALIZE WE HAVE BEEN TAKEN OUT OF PRAYER…..WE JUST JUMP

BACK IN AND START PRAYING AGAIN….AND AGAIN…..AND AGAIN….UNTIL WE

REACH THE BREAK THRU….AND THEN WE JUST KEEP PRAYING ALWAYS IN THE

SPIRIT.

God has given many in the Bible conformations

concerning many different things and continues to do

so even now.

For me I think without a doubt this was the most

amazing conformation I have ever had, it was like the

finger of GOD writing on the wall.

Image result for the finger of god writing on the wall

I had come to the point that I come to sometimes where

I just lay it all down before the Lord, and say: Lord out

of all of my hopes and dreams and endeavors that I am

involved in, WHAT IS IT YOU WOULD HAVE ME

CONTINUE IN….AND WHAT WOULD YOU HAVE ME NOT

BE INVOLVED IN ANYMORE????

prayer-warrior

The one that was foremost on my mind was, the

writings of my story in life. This blog, a book I am

almost finished with, and now I am learning how to do

a podcast. These are all ways to get my story out to

people so they can be encouraged in their spiritual

walk and growth.

quill-pen-and-inkwell

Now I have had some people encourage me in my

writings, but I just needed some other conformation

that would make it very clear for me, so I continued

waiting on GOD for some kind of sign, something that

would stand out, something very clear.

Image result for fireworks

So, yesterday I went to the big mall here to make a

house payment, and as I was walking around I said:

Lord I am still needing a conformation as to whether I

should continue writing my story (testimony, etc, etc).

Image result for robinson airport mall chiang mai

After some time I was not thinking about anything (a

gift that men have) and I decided to go down 1 floor to

the food court, I would usually stay on the main

walkway to do this, but I saw a shortcut that would get

me there faster.

As I turned to go another way I was walking by the Nike

store and for some reason (GOD), I just happened to

look over at a advertising SIGN that was in the window.

EYES….I WALKED OVER TO THE SIGN

AND READ IT AGAIN AND AGAIN….IS IT SAYING WHAT

I THINK ITS SAYING…WOW HOW MUCH MORE PLAIN

COULD IT BE….SO I TOOK THIS PICTURE OF THE SIGN

AND THAT’S ME IN THE REFLECTION.

The Woman Who Inherited Millions But Lost Her Testimony

____________________________________________________________________________________________

 

As difficult as it may be to persevere in prayer through

the impasse so God can complete the purging process, I

can guarantee you — it is worth it all.

You see, the Holy Spirit is the One whom God sent to

illuminate and strengthen your reborn human spirit to

put to death the deeds of the flesh that hinder your

walk with Him. But even if you don’t allow the Holy

Spirit to expose the things hidden in darkness, sooner

or later they will still be revealed.

e435c-depressed_28464974963929-2

For example, someone once told me the story of a

Pentecostal woman who always sat on the front pew of

the church. She praised God and shouted with the best

of them. This woman’s husband was a multi-millionaire

heathen. When she went to church, he would lock her

out;sometimes he even beat her. But no matter what

her husband did, she would come to church every time

the doors were open. She was a faithful woman.

Image result for women praising god in the front row at church

One day her husband died, and she inherited his entire

fortune. However, it wasn’t very long after her

husband’s death that this woman’s cars became longer

and her church attendance became shorter! Pretty soon

she went from sitting at the front of the church, to the

middle, and then to the back. Finally, she only came to

special meetings. By that time, the only power she fell

out under was the weight of the gold strapped to her

wrists!

Image result for women wearing a lot of gold

Someone said, “It would have been better if that woman

had never inherited the money at all.” Wrong. All the

money did was expose to the light something that

already existed in her,hidden in darkness.

Image result for hidden in darkness

You see, it isn’t money that is evil — it’s the love of

money. If this woman hadn’t inherited the money,

something else would have brought out that trait in her

down the line.

Image result for worshiping money

This is why Jesus said, “These are they who are sown

among thorns” (Mark 4:18). The thorn seeds existed in

the field before the Word was sown. When the Word

seed landed on the ground, the cares of this life and the

deceitfulness of riches (thorn seeds already resident

with-in the ground) sprang up, wrapped themselves

around God’s prosperity, and proceeded to suck those

seedling plants into a selfish lifestyle and thus to

neutralize the Word (v. 19).

PLEASUREBOAT5657390_20160816160852343_1_XLARGE

You see, you don’t climb into a grimy cellar, turn the

light on, and say, “My, my, look at all the dirt this light

brought!” No, the dirt was already there. The light just

exposed it.

In the case of that woman, the potential to run after

money was already there. All the money did was expose

the problem.

Image result for money

Exposing the fleshly work for the purpose of purging is

supposed to be the job of the Holy Ghost. Jesus said, “If

you bear fruit, I will purge you. I will trim you back. I

will cut the dead limbs off” (John 15:2). He was telling

us, “I will clear the thorn seeds out of your field. When

the Word seed comes up and you start prospering the

Kingdom, I will keep the thorn seeds far enough away

from your plant that they cannot choke you.”

Image result for keeping the weeds from the plant

I would much rather have the Holy Spirit expose my

weakness than to have a million dollars expose it. I

would much rather lend myself to the transforming

power of the Holy Spirit to be purged by the Word.

Biblia

You ask me, “Would you like to have a million dollars?”

I’m not a liar. Yes, I would. “Do you want the million

dollars to choke the life of God out of you?” Absolutely

not. That’s why I continually yield myself to the purging

process of the Holy Ghost.

_____________________________________________________________________________________________

Prosperity in Perspective

_____________________________________________________________________________________________

Prosperity is a relevant and important subject to our

lives. God wants to prosper us. When we are little baby

Christians, God slaps us on the bottom, changes our

diaper, and gives us toys. But we need to let the Holy

Spirit grow us up and take us higher in God through the

Word that pulls down soulish strongholds and sets us

free.

pastors-wife-deacon-church-members

BABY CHRISTIAN STAGE

As you mature in the Lord, your faith will adjust to the

fact that the more you use every-thing you possess for

the Kingdom, the more God is free to increase you in

material wealth.

Image result for spreading the gospel in all the world

Because I live my life laboring for the world to come,

God is able to put money in my hands now. And He

doesn’t mind that I “water my ditch” as it comes

through my hands. I can buy my child a fishing pole. I

can buy my wife a dress. He doesn’t mind, because my

focus is on laying up treasures in Heaven.

Image result for laying up treasures in heaven

God will purge you until you have that same focus

through mortification. And in the end after you have

persevered in prayer and yielded to His purging

process, you will be rich both in souls and in material

goods.

You see, a lot of people want to be rich, but they want

their wealth to grow up among thorn patches. They

don’t understand that real prosperity is based on God’s

purging process.

A person can confess God’s promises regarding

prosperity until he turns blue, but if he is someone who

causes strife and hates people, then God will not speak

to him in the secret place of his heart about good

business deals. Why? Because He knows that person

won’t be able to use the money for His glory.

What Causes an Impasse?

_____________________________________________________________________________________________

We can become so disappointed when we give ourselves

faithfully to a season of prayer, and then it appears as

though God has done nothing to answer that prayer.

But the truth is, God is incapable of letting us down!

The breakdown occurs when we don’t understand how

God answers the mysteries we pray in tongues. So we

stop praying before He can manifest His power in our

external circumstances.

Image result for i give up

At one time or another, many of my friends fell into

that trap. They would get all excited after hearing a

message on praying in the Holy Ghost and building

themselves up on their most holy faith. Then they

would jump headfirst into hours of praying every day.

Teenager holding a bible

But after a few months of this kind of praying, they

would hit an impasse. Instead of God working miracles

in the circumstances that surrounded them — getting

them out of debt, healing their bodies, and so forth — it

seemed as if the opposite would take place. Many of the

mentored into a crisis mode, and their emotions went

wild. Some of them had emotional fits of despair.

Others displayed a rather weird side to their

personality.

Image result for weird people

Consequently, many of these same people went on to

give praying in tongues a bad name.Still others began to

downplay the importance of tongues by preaching

against it.

Preaching

You see, when the edification process begins to throw a

light on the fleshly deeds that are hidden in darkness, it

illuminates not only those things that you want to get

rid of, but the things you don’t. The Holy Spirit will pull

these spiritual roadblocks out of the darkness and put

them on display where you can see more clearly what

you’re dealing with. It’s during these times that your

emotions can sometimes go wild.

Obesidad

As the light of edification burns brighter and brighter,

the Holy Spirit begins to uncover some of the most

difficult roadblocks to deal with, such as unforgiveness

and selfishness.

PLEASUREBOAT5657390_20160816160852343_1_XLARGE

At this point, some people stop praying, because every

time they report to the prayer closet, the negative

emotions become stronger, flooding over them with a

vengeance that leaves them feeling troubled. The devil

will use those emotions and everything else in his

power to pull them out of prayer, throwing fiery darts

of unbelief, defeat, and deception at their minds as

thick and fast as he can.

Image result for satan attacking the mind with fiery darts

Instead of feeling better as they pray, these people feel

worse. So the next day when it’s time for prayer,

antagonistic feelings begin to rise. Their emotions lead

a revolt against praying in tongues, and they

rationalize, “If praying in tongues is so important, why

do I feel the way I do? What good is it doing me,

anyway? I’m not any worse than anyone else.”

woman-saying-no

Many times what we are really hoping for is some

magical formula that will activate God into changing

everything around us. God forbid that we need any

changing ourselves! We want God to use us just the way

we are.

_____________________________________________________________________________________________

Coming Through on the Other Side

_____________________________________________________________________________________________

But a person can make it through this type of impasse if

he will persist in faith and prayer.The emotions of

unforgiveness, selfishness, and so forth, will become so

strong that they are impossible to ignore. When the

person finally recognizes how ugly these fleshly works

are, the power of the Holy Spirit will give him the inner

strength to deal with them. True repentance can follow,

which leads to mortification, victory, and freedom.

3ee55-manholyspirit

I almost fell into the same trap my friends did when I

hit an impasse in the first year of full-time ministry. But

I had just become an avid “faith man,” so my attitude

about everything could be summed up in one sentence:

“If the Word says it, I believe it!” I was determined not

to be moved by what I saw, heard, or felt, but only by

what the Word said. And if the Word said that when I

pray in an unknown tongue, I edify myself —bless God,

that was what I was going to do

Biblia

As I came through that impasse to the other side, I

noticed some of the old fears and uncertainties that

used to control my life were gone. For instance, the fear

of lack had been crucified. It no longer tormented me

with thoughts like, I’m full time in the ministry now. I

have three little kids and nowhere to preach. My

goodness, where is the money going to come from?

Image result for me and 3 little kids

Through praying in tongues, that fear died. I got past

the impasse and entered into a place of peace. I knew

that I knew inside of my spirit that God would be the

Supplier of all my needs.

___________________________________________________________________________________________

Faith To Receive, Faith To Mortify

___________________________________________________________________________________________

Now, don’t kid yourself — it takes faith to persevere

through the impasse and die to your flesh. The same

faith that causes you to be exalted in this life with what

the world esteems as success is to be exercised to die to

the world and the flesh so God can use you.

After I got a hold of the message of faith, the first thing

I used it for was the appropriation of material

blessings. Until then, I had always lived on the poverty

line, and I wanted a new car and a new house. So in one

year, God gave me two new cars and a motor home, all

paid for.

Image result for new house car

God didn’t mind doing that for me. He knew that

although I was mainly concerned with my own creature

comforts at that time,

_____________________________________________________________________________________________

one day I would be concerned for

the rebirth of a city. And the day came

when I took the same faith I had used to

appropriate blessings and refocused it on

my own life to achieve complete

mortification.

_____________________________________________________________________________________________

I use this as an illustration: When one of my sons was

about eight years old, he came to me and said, “Daddy,

would you buy me a BB gun?” Well, did I pick up that

little boy by the lapel of his shirt and commence to slap

his face, all the while yelling, “Listen to me, you little

flesh creature! When are you going to become an asset

instead of a liability in this family?”

Image result for bb gun

No, I did not. I bought him the BB gun. (Then I had to

teach him how to hit the tree and not the neighbor’s

plate-glass window with it!)

Image result for window shot with bb gun

Well, God didn’t pick me up and start slapping me

because I asked for a new car either. He gave it to me

gladly, because He had faith that one day I would use

the same faith to first mortify my flesh and then save

cities for the Kingdom. Jesus Himself said, “Seek first

the Kingdom, and I will add all these (material) things

to you” (Matt. 6:33). (And by the way, it took a whole lot

more faith for me to die to my flesh than it did to

believe for a new car!)

Overcoming Impasses In Prayer

 

God has filled me with compassion for people who start

out all “bright-eyed and bushy-tailed” in their

commitment to pray in the Spirit, but then reach an

impasse and stop praying before they enter into the

glory on the other side.

Image result for bright eyed and bushy tailed

An impasse is a spiritual plateau or dry place that

generally occurs just before God is ready to move you

to a higher place in His Spirit. I want to help you

understand the nature of an impasse because there is

so much waiting for you in the realm of God if you will

press on in prayer.

Image result for plateau dry place

You will have to push past many impasses if you plan to

persevere in prayer, the first usually being the

temptation to fall out of prayer. The devil will try

everything he can think of to get you out of prayer.

PLEASUREBOAT5657390_20160816160852343_1_XLARGE

But if the enemy doesn’t succeed in that, he still won’t

totally give up. Instead, he will come from a new angle.

He will try to deceive you any way he can to keep you

from going higher in God.

Image result for playing computer games

But just keep praying. Eventually you will come to the

place where you are so hungry for God that you won’t

have to make yourself pray; it will be your heart’s

desire. You’ll want to do whatever is necessary to draw

closer to Him.

I know about impasses from personal experience. Day

after day during my first year of ministry, I spent a

certain amount of time praying in tongues. I was too

stubborn to quit, even though there were times when

every cell in my body screamed in resistance.

Image result for screaming

I have to admit it was hard for me to understand why

something that was supposed to be so edifying was so

hard to stick with. But since then I have come to

understand why so many people who start out praying

in tongues with such fervency sometimes become

discouraged and give up.

_____________________________________________________________________________________________

Legalism and Condemnation Don’t Come From God

_____________________________________________________________________________________________

The first reason, as we already discussed, is that people

often look for spectacular changes in their outward

circumstances and miss the miraculous work of the

Holy Spirit taking place on the inside. Another reason is

that many people view prayer as something they have

to do to avoid condemnation rather than as a blessed

time of fellowship with the Father that brings eternal

changes.

Related image

You see, the human creature is prone to legalism. There

is nothing the devil likes more than to impose a set of

legalistic rules on a person. Then when that person has

a hard time keeping those rules, his confidence that

God will move in his life is greatly shaken.

Image result for the devils list of rules

AND AFTER THAT YOU NEED TO PRAY 1 HOUR

Let me give you a classic example. When a person

finally commits to an early morning hour of prayer, he

looks like a militant marching off to war. He has that

look in his eyes that says,“By golly, don’t anyone try to

stop me!” But all he has to do is miss one or two early

morning sessions of prayer, and the devil is right there

to tell him, “That’s it — you blew it!”

Image result for militant marching off to war

That’s what happened to me during that first year of

praying in tongues. The first impasse I encountered was

falling out of prayer. My fleshly nature would flare up,

and I’d stop praying for a time. Then the devil would

bring condemnation because I hadn’t reported like a

rigid soldier every day at a certain hour.

Why is the devil able to put us under that kind of

condemnation? Because in the back of our mind, we are

often convinced that it is our physical effort of filling a

certain cubicle of space in a certain location for a

certain hour that pleases God.

Image result for prayer closet

But God doesn’t keep score based on the number of

days you spent praying in tongues last month. He is

interested in how much change has taken place in your

life.

Now, please don’t get me wrong; discipline and

determination are essential ingredients in the godly

life. But you’ll miss it if you base your relationship with

God on whether or not you prayed yesterday.

God doesn’t slap you down with condemnation and take

away your anointing because you missed two days of

prayer. He’s delighted in whatever fellowship you want

to give Him. He wants to enter into new places of

change together with you, increasing the anointing on

your life at every new level.

Teenager holding a bible

I have learned that God fellowships with us according

to the changes that take place in our lives through

prayer. The more change, the more fellowship we can

have with Him. He isn’t interested in legalism that

causes us to report to an hour of prayer. You see,

prayer was never meant to be a chore, but a precious

time of transformation and fellowship.

__________________________________________________________________________________________

Fall in Love With Prayer

__________________________________________________________________________________________

So in order for you and me to enjoy all the wonderful

blessings that God has prepared for us, we must fall in

love with prayer. But we can’t do that until we

understand that God isn’t disgusted with us for all the

well-meaning times we have started to pray and failed

to finish.

e435c-depressed_28464974963929-2

When I was a new Christian, knowing that I should pray

wasn’t enough. Listening to preachers tell me that

prayer was my obligation wasn’t enough. Feeling

ashamed and condemned at my lack of prayer wasn’t

enough. Only understanding the nature of God and

falling in love with prayer became enough to make me

pursue praying in tongues for personal edification.

Biblia

So let me help you understand what will get you past

that point where so many people fail in prayer to a

place in your spiritual walk where God can

unrestrainedly pour out His blessings on you. I want

you to fall in love with prayer — not because it is your

legalistic duty, not because you will live under

condemnation if you don’t, but because it is the path

that leads to sharing special times of fellowship with

your Heavenly Father that will change your life for-

ever.

For me I think without a doubt this was the most

amazing conformation I have ever had, it was like the

finger of GOD writing on the wall.

I had come to the point that I come to sometimes where

I just lay it all down before the Lord, and say: Lord out

of all of my hopes and dreams and endeavors that I am

involved in, WHAT IS IT YOU WOULD HAVE ME

CONTINUE IN….AND WHAT WOULD YOU HAVE ME NOT

BE INVOLVED IN ANYMORE????

The one that was foremost on my mind was, the

writings of my story in life. This blog, a book I am

almost finished with, and now I am learning how to do

a podcast. These are all ways to get my story out to

people so they can be encouraged in their spiritual

walk and growth.

Now I have had some people encourage me in my

writings, but I just needed some other conformation

that would make it very clear for me, so I continued

waiting on GOD for some kind of sign, something that

would stand out, something very clear.

So, yesterday I went to the big mall here to make a

house payment, and as I was walking around I said:

Lord I am still needing a conformation as to whether I

should continue writing my story (testimony, etc, etc).

After some time I was not thinking about anything (a

gift that men have) and I decided to go down 1 floor to

the food court, I would usually stay on the main

walkway to do this, but I saw a shortcut that would get

me there faster.

As I turned to go another way I was walking by the Nike

store and for some reason (GOD), I just happened to

look over at a advertising SIGN that was in the window.

Now out of all of the places I could have been in this 4

story mall with hundreds of stores, and hundreds of

advertising signs,

I JUST HAPPENED TO BE AT THIS SIGN, AND GLANCED

OVER TO LOOK AT IT….I COULD NOT BELIEVE MY

EYES….I WALKED OVER TO THE SIGN

AND READ IT AGAIN AND AGAIN….IS IT SAYING WHAT

I THINK ITS SAYING…WOW HOW MUCH MORE PLAIN

COULD IT BE….SO I TOOK THIS PICTURE OF THE SIGN

AND THAT’S ME IN THE REFLECTION.

YES GOD STILL GIVES US CONFORMATIONS IF WE WILL WAIT ON HIM.
