Quote of the Week

"Fear is not the opposite of faith. It is the absence of faith. In 2 Timothy 1:7 we read, 'For God has not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.' ” ~Dr. David Stuart, PhD

AromaTalk Tip of the Week: Green Dishwashing

“I never use dish detergent in my dishwasher. I simply add white vinegar and about a capful of Thieves® Household Cleaner. It saves a lot of money by not using a dishwasher detergent and gets the dishes quite clean and germ free.”

The Joy Of Spring

Sometime after toasting the New Year, you find your self restlessly anticipating warmer weather. You're wishing, hoping, praying for spring to come--and you're not alone.
A time of renewal and rebirth, many of us look forward to spring as a time of new beginnings. Spring is the time to open your windows, breathe the fresh air, plant a garden, and enjoy budding flowers. It is a time to set aside any weary winter emotions and experience joy.
Spring is a great time to rid yourself of any negative feelings that can hinder you from progressing. To combat disparaging emotions, Young Living developed Joy essential oil blend, which is uplifting to all the senses.
In addition to bergamot, lemon, palmarosa, rosewood, and Roman chamomile, Young Living's proprietary Joy essential oil blend contains a springtime bouquet of ylang ylang, rose, geranium, and the absolute or essence of jasmine. Each oil in this blend is specifically chosen to offer you a potent and effective aromatherapy experience. Learn more about Joy's remarkable flowers and learn what they can do for you!
Ylang Ylang is a small flower of the cananga tree that is native to the Philippines and Indonesia.
The name ylang ylang is Tagalog for "flower of flowers", and its oil is believed to normalize oil production in the skin, and is also considered and aphrodisiac.
Rose has long been valued for its intoxicating floral aroma. Rose oil's stimulating properties may produce a greater sense of well-being and self-confidence. Rose is also perfect for dry or aging skin.
Geranium orginated in Africa, but can be grown almost anywhere in the world. Traditionally used to support the circulatory and nervous systems, a great deal of geranium's strength lies in its ability to revitalize body tissues. It is also excellent for the skin and its aroma may help release negative memories.
Jasmine was thought of as the queen of flowers in ancient India, and its name was derived from the Persian word yasmin meaning "fragrant flower". Its warm exotic fragrance has been used throughout history for romance and attraction and it is also beneficial for the skin.
Combined with other key oils, these flower oils found in Joy create a luxuriously exotic blend with uplifting overtones and promote happy feelings to the heart. As a new season approaches and spring is in the air, use Young Living's Joy essential oil blend to enhance your springtime experience this year!

What Happened To Healing In The Church?

anointing,Bible,Bible Verse

The purpose of this ministry is to put God back into
healing, and healing back into the Church where it began.
We do this by working with churches who seek us out to
train and equip their members for the healing ministry.
We are not able to administer or disciple readers in
need of healing. this is for their local Church to do.

So how DO we think as a people in our culture?

Thanks to 30 minute TV sit-coms where problems always get
fixed by the end of the show, our culture is conditioned
to solving problems in 30 minutes or less. This is also
why info commercials are so popular. They solve a problem
and do it quickly. It also explains why Apps are so popular
with smart phone users. Have a need? Just download an app
for it and walla. Problem solved! I am telling you this
because the same mindset tends to follow us when dealing
with life's problems.

We want quick solutions to life's problems. We especially
want solutions without pain or suffering, or having to
change our lifestyle. This explains why so many people
fall for phony healing schemes, including many offered
by the medical industry.

People want quick fixes. Kinda like flipping on a light
switch, fast and easy, no pain. That same mindset also
follows us to Church. When it comes to spiritual healing
we want it, but we want it to be on our terms as we want
everything else in life to be.

Spiritual healing as we teach it is not miraculous as
people think of miracles. It is divine but not often
instantaneous. Just as faith must be taught
(Romans 10:17), so too must spiritual healing.

Believers must be taught to align their lives in
accordance with God's will in order for divine healing
to occur. That may sound simple enough at first. But many
believers carry around junk habits and beliefs foreign to
God's will. What's more, many Christians are not aware
these habits and beliefs are working against God and

The biblical way to teach Christians to align their
lives with God for healing is through discipleship.
Discipleship is the heart and soul of Church healing
ministries. Discipleship can determine whether an illness
is spiritual or environmental in nature. It could be
something as simple as learning the artificial sweeteners
they eat may be the real reason behind the heart attack
they suffered.

An often abused assumption is if I am a Christian, God is
suppose to heal me. And it's true. God certainly heals the
sick through the Body of Christ, His Church. But God does
not heal every Christian who asks for healing. As in all
things there is a reason why this is so. This is why
discipleship is needed. This is why your Church needs
a trained healing ministry.

It saddens me when people write to us for healing,
because we cannot disciple them. We cannot dig into
their lives to uncover whether or not there is a
spiritual reason for their malady. That is for
their local Church to do.

Now in case you are wondering why discipleship is so
important in healing the sick, it may surprise you to
learn believers oftentimes differ little from
non-believers on a number of basic Christian beliefs.

For instance:

Do you believe that Satan is a living entity? If you do
you are in a minority. Many Christians do NOT believe
Satan is a real living entity. In fact, over 50% of all
born again believers DENY the existence of Satan as
a living entity.

Do you believe if you are good enough you can EARN
a place in heaven? 45% (almost half) of all born
again believers think they can.

This information I am sharing with you comes from an
emerging trends study conducted by Princeton Religion
Research Centers. Among the beliefs of so-called born
again believers, the study discovered;

35% believe Jesus committed sins like other people.
35% do not believe Jesus was physically resurrected
from the grave.
26% read a daily Horoscope.
20% believe in reincarnation.
28% believe in ghosts.
50% watch porn videos

Now here's where I am going in all of this. Many Christians
who live by these standards think their beliefs and habits
are normal After all, it's what they believe. And this kind
of junk only scratches the surface. Some believers harbor
hatred and unforgiveness in their heart. Some carry pride
and/or think only of themselves. What's more, in many
cases they are not consciously aware of these sins in
their life. These are feelings that lie buried deep within.
The list is long and well documented. This is just some
of the junk in our lives that prevents God from healing
us. So who is to blame?

My purpose here is not to condemn or point a finger,
but you need to be questioning what your Church is
NOT teaching.

Truth is, Many so called born again believers do not
have a clue about sin, salvation and sanctification.
They may be well meaning souls, but are totally
ineffective as Christians.

The world is crumbling around us, including the Church.
Our very way of life is being threatened from many sides
in the world. While you may not have influence in the
world, you do have influence in your Church.

Let me challenge you to address your Church board,
elders or priest to get back to the basics of Christian
faith. There is a great need to preach the Word of God
even to our own.
