Have you ever wondered what the disciples would have said to Jesus when He was going to the garden of Gethsemane to pray? They just finished a unique and amazing Passover meal that focused on a new concept of thought they had never heard before.

Jesus is now approaching the Garden of Gethsemane in the dark of the night stating they will all scatter with the same assignment as they had before, but this time they are to take a purse, a bag, and a sword. When their mission is complete Jesus would see them again in the Galilee?
What's happening?

"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life" (John 3:16).

This Scriptures is probably the most quoted verse from the Bible than any other. Most often the agenda of validating this verse as a "thus says the Lord" into a conversation is to justify that if you don't receive Jesus as your personal Savior, you won't go to heaven; you will perish into an eternal lake of fire. Is this really the conversation taking place between Nicodemus and Jesus? Is this what Jesus was saying?

"See, my servant will act wisely; he will be raised and lifted up and highly exalted" (Isaiah 52:13).

When Isaiah wrote this, the idea of a servant being raised and exalted was NOT an idea that the culture would have given any thought to. Here, God is speaking a message through the prophet Isaiah to people identified as a slave, a maid, a butler, a servant, a housekeeper, a gardener, or anyone that was living in a situation that meant for them to serve another that had power, prestige, money, or position.

When Jesus began His ministry, He used the word "repent" in context of encouraging people to change their heart – their way of thinking – because the longing of a better way was there before them. Unfortunately, this is NOT the way the church has been encouraging people to repent but teaching repentance as a means of escaping hell and going to heaven. Even with John the Baptist's usage of the word, he is not telling the people how bad they are, but the opportunity to change their way of thinking and living is about to change.

When Jesus was teaching on how to pray to God, He makes a special emphasis that one should first recognize that they are praying to "Your Father." Then He elaborates on the fact that "Your Father" already knows what you need BEFORE you ask Him. When we go to our "secret place" to talk with God, our Father in Heaven already knows the need and the solution. Should we tell Him the need anyway? Most of us do, even though our thoughts are supposed to NOT be about our issues, and instead about Heaven and the Kingdom of God in the earth.

Every human being was, has been, and will be created in the image of God after His likeness and kind. Every human being was born to fulfill an assignment – a purpose- to BE an answer or solution for the Kingdom of Heaven in the earth. No one was born by accident or a mistake, even though the means of our birth may not have been planned. The fact that each person was born at a particular time and season was the plan of God, or else that conception would not have taken place. It is God who determines the impregnation of the seed into the egg to form LIFE. God didn't just cause conception to take place, He also created a purpose for that conception.

"All 12 Boys and Their Coach Have Been Rescued from a Thailand Cave"
The world witnessed many things as this incident played out as the media kept every country around the world up to date of what was going on. It's the after shock of a major earthquake that tends to cause the re-evaluation of life altering decisions.

"Was it science, a miracle, or something else?"

Most Christians will immediately state that this was a miracle, and instantly give God the glory. What if all the boys and coach didn't make it out alive? Would God be glorified by Christians, or would they speak judgment upon the situation because of the worship of Buddha as the countries pathway to God?

Have you ever found yourself coming into hearing bits and pieces of a conversation that two people were having, and thinking they were talking about something or someone, and yet their entire conversation had nothing to do with the direction that you thought they were referring to? This is what has happened with the conversation between Jesus and Nicodemus. Let's review John Chapter 3, to consider what is really taking place here. When asked to quote Scripture, most Christians immediately say John 3:16, "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." When were you born the first time?

Receiving the power of the Holy Spirit is about being able to unconditionally love one another as God first loved us while we were in darkness, ignorance, and self-glorification. Loving unconditionally, can only happen when the Holy Spirit is present, for this love is divine love that comes from above. This is a sacrificial love of giving to someone else, with no agenda.

In the fall of 2017 a mission trip took place through-out five European countries to reclaim the redemptive gifts of the land that would affect the world. This mission trip began seven months earlier with a vision I received from the Lord in the early morning hours as I was awakening from a restful night of sleep. Without going into the details of the vision, it ended with me hearing from the Lord the words "Pulsar Mountain." Since I had never heard of a place with those words, I got up and googled the words to see if a place existed with that name. I was pleasantly surprised to find that it does, but not as a literal mountain. Here is a scientific article I found on the topic:
