My story with God
My background is Roman Catholic. I never knew growing up that I could have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. I was living for myself, doing whatever I pleased, gambling, drinking, partying, telling off-colour stories, dabbling in the occult, yet still going to church on Sundays.
The first time I read the Bible was in 1979. For six months, I was travelling by train four hours a day to get to my job in another city. During this time, I read the New Testament over and over, and really enjoyed reading about Jesus. I found the stories amazing. Even though I was reading the Bible, the revelation of God's truth did not yet get through to me.
Then in 1997 I had another nudge, while exercising. I distinctly heard a voice say: 'Seek ye first the kingdom of God.' It was so bizarre, that I looked around to see who was talking. No one was in the house. I made a note in my journal, of what I heard that day.
Then in 2003, on April 12th, I was attending an Alpha Course where we could ask all the hard questions. We were discussing 'Who is Jesus?' and 'Why did He die?' I realized that I needed to make a choice. The facilitator said that I could be sure of where I would go when I died, and I wanted to be sure. I was at home all by myself, when I invited Jesus into my heart. He came in so lovingly and I experienced real forgiveness for the first time in my life. I was exhilarated and joyful, and I still am.
My husband, Tony did the Alpha Course with me, and said the sinners prayer the following week, but he did not have the experience of being saved until later. It happened on January 6, 2005, while he was listening to a taped message by Jack Frost, 'Hindrances to Receiving the Father's Love'. He then had the awareness: 'It's not about me, it's about Jesus'. What an amazing revelation. Now God had his attention, and his heart. You really know when God has a hold of you. We are both so thankful that we can serve our King together. We are growing in His love and knowledge. God is so Good!
The two most exciting things in my life were when my daughter, Carla, gave her heart to Jesus on October 1, 2006, after I prayed with her, and God delivered her from anxiety. My son Rob gave his heart to the Lord on July 1, 2007 while while we were visiting him. We drove 8,000 km on that journey, and it was a pleasure. All the stories are amazing. These precious ones are all on fire to spread the love of God to others. Thank You, Jesus! You are the One who saves us all. Now we are praying for household salvation. There are still a few more to come.
Other stuff about me:
My husband and I both have a heart for mission work. Last winter we built a home in Jequetepeque, Peru. Hopefully it can be used as a respite for missionaries in need of a rest. We plan to serve God, wherever we are, here in Canada, or at our home away from home in Perú. God is great! HE is good all the time!

I choose to serve God, and day-by-day am learning to live in His will, and to trust and obey HIM. HE is my King!. I do not lose sight of the fact that I am a sinner saved by HIS grace. I am a grateful daughter and I know what I've been saved from. I plan to live in blessings from now on, and to occupy until He comes for me, or until I go to be with Him.

The Holy Spirit is Grieved by Wrong Conversations and Conduct

Posted on July 13, 2009 at 4:08pm 4 Comments

(from Mike Murdock’s book…3 Most Important Things in Your Life.)



The Holy Spirit is HOLY. Words matter to Him. Conversation is important to Him. Our conduct and behavior is monitored continuously.



Seventeen Facts Every Christian Should Know About Grieving the Holy Spirit -

1. The Holy Spirit is easily grieved and offended.

Let no corrupt speech proceed out of your mouth, but such as is good for edifying as the need may be, that it may give grace to them… Continue

The Holy Spirit is our Only Source of True Joy, Peace and Love

Posted on July 3, 2009 at 6:26pm 2 Comments

(Inspired by Mike Murdock’s book, ‘The 3 Most Important Things in Your Life)



The Holy Spirit is the Source of Joy. His Presence brings joy. His fruit is joy. His Wisdom increases our joy. He is the Spirit of Wisdom. The pursuit of money, or having it does not produce joy. We cannot depend on our loved ones to create an atmosphere of happiness.



There are five misconceptions about joy. Many think joy comes from people, promotion, progress, power or possessions. The wise… Continue

The Holy Spirit is the Author of the Word of God

Posted on June 11, 2009 at 9:00am 1 Comment

The Holy Spirit breathed through men, the Holy Scriptures. ‘For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost:’ (2 Peter 1:21)



When you quote the Bible, you are quoting the Holy Spirit. He is articulate, brilliant and authored the words of God to us today.



He inspired holy men of God to write under His leadership. ‘All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for… Continue

The Holy Spirit Created You

Posted on June 10, 2009 at 7:25am 2 Comments

You are His greatest product. Your personality, body and everything about you are the designs of the Holy Spirit.

Think of your incredible body that functions miraculously.



‘I will praise Thee for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are the works; and that my soul knoweth right well;

(Psalm 139:14)



The Holy Spirit considers your body His dwelling place.



‘What? Know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which… Continue

The Holy Spirit is a Person

Posted on June 9, 2009 at 8:10am 4 Comments

I am reading a book entitled, “The 3 Most Important Things in Your Life”, by Mike Murdock.



John 14:16 And I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Advocate, who will never leave you. He is the Holy Spirit who leads you into all truth. The world cannot receive Him, because it isn’t looking for Him and doesn’t recognize Him. But you know Him because He lives with you now and later will be in you.



Ever since Pentecost, the Good News of the Kingdom has been… Continue

Please do keep on praying for the request of mine down below, and I know I can count on you to do it:

Please "WIN the 10/40 WINDOWS" for JESUS CHRIST.
The 10/40 Windows (located between 10 - 40 degrees North of Equator - between West Africa to East Asia) need Missionaries, have no church at all, and there live about 40 percent of the world population. INDONESIA, my country is in the 10-40 windows though we have churches. Please also pray for ISRAEL and all over the world. Let's get on our knees, praying hand in hand with me for their revival. I look forward to the day when the Lord who I kneel to worship will be recognized by all the living and the dead as the One True Lord.

In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. John 14:2

A message was given recently in which Jesus said, the mansion I went to prepare for you is now finished. All is ready for Me to bring My people home.

With much love in Christ: Christy Gabriel B

I am being made aware that Jesus is coming sooner than many think. Many will not be ready for His return. We need to be ready, wise virgins, keeping oil in our lamps.
