It might help you understand normal Christianity better if I give you a
little of our testimony. I became a believer in '77 and my wife 3 years
previously. We "discovered" that Jesus is just who He says He is and
still doing all the same things He did in His earthly ministry: "Jesus
Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever." We also learned He
wanted things done His way, according to what His word says, not "I
think" or what religion told us. For instance we saw the promise in Acts
16:31, and by faith (Hebrews 11:1) our parents, brothers and sisters
all received Jesus. It was interesting because my wife's family were
quite Catholic. They are not anymore.


I had the privilege of
leading my father to the Lord. Jesus healed him of high blood pressure
(he had been on medication for 30 years) and diabetes. I had been an
alcoholic since high school but Jesus set me totally free shortly after I
was born from above.

The keys to Jesus' kingdom and all Jesus
purchased in His atonement we found out were just what Peter preached in
Acts 2:37-39. "...Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the
name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive
the gift of the Holy Spirit. Two things we decided to do His way. We
were clueless about the Holy Spirit but saw it in Mark 16:17 "And these
signs will follow those who believe: In my name they will cast out
demons; they will speak with new tongues;...". We "believed" and man's
views weren't working so it happened a lot like in Acts 19:1-6. We also
found out that He really is a jealous God and will not share His glory
with another. As we saw Him faithful we decided to trust Him alone for
His promises.

My attitude was (and still is) either Jesus does
today what He promises and did 2000 years ago if we meet the conditions
(and His grace enables us) or we need another god. So I canceled our
health insurance, paid off all debt including our mortgage and Jesus
became our family physician and "banker". Five of our 7 children were
born at home by the power of Jesus plus 11 grand children. One daughter
was still born with the cord wrapped around her neck, a dark purple and
not breathing. I called out to Jesus and He raised her up. Jesus has
healed all of us many times: asthma, broken bones, hemorrhage,
appendicitis, and more without any use of shots, drugs or the medical system for over 35 years.
Most of these were healings we were required to believe Jesus' word and
battle the devil for over a period of time. Instantaneous miracles are
great, but do not produce Hebrews 11 faith.

We have had the
privilege to pray for many others and see them healed by Jesus' power;
two people of terminal cancer (their doctors were amazed). We have
friends that see all of Matthew 10:7-8 quite often including our oldest
son's father-in-law who ministers to the Indians in the mountains of
Oaxaca, Mexico. People need a Jesus that works in their situation, not
after they are dead!

This is NORMAL Christianity not some
"special" grace. Many think we are insane, but my attitude is we are not
out of our minds, just out of theirs. Believers have been robbed of so
much by religion, opinion, doubt and unbelief that Kingdom living is
nearly an unknown thing and "churchianity" substituted for it. After all
Jesus mentioned the Kingdom Of Heaven (God) over 100 times in the
gospels and the church twice.

Our hearts are to do all we can to
have Jesus receive all the love, faith and obedience from Christians
that He died to make possible.
