Billy Graham’s daughter was interviewed on the Early Show and Jane Clayson asked her “How could God let something like this happen?” (regarding the attacks on Sept, 11, hurricanes and earth quakes. Anne Graham gave an extremely profound and insightful response. She said “I believe God is deeply saddened by this, just as we are, but for years we’ve been telling God to get out of our schools, to get out of our government and to get out of our lives. And being the gentleman He is, I believe He has calmly backed out. How can we expect God to give us His blessing and His protection if we demand He leave us alone?” In light of recent events…terrorists attack, school shootings, etc. I think it started when Madeleine Murray O’Hare (she was murdered, her body found recently) complained she didn’t want prayer in our schools, and we said OK. Then someone said you better not read the Bible in school …. the Bible says thou shalt not kill, thou shalt not steal, and love your neighbor as yourself. And we said OK. Then Dr. Benjamin Spock said we shouldn’t spank our children when they misbehave because their little personalities would be warped and we might damage their self-esteem (Dr. Spock’s son committed suicide). We said an expert should know what he’s talking about. And we said OK. Now we’re asking ourselves why our children have no conscience, why they don’t know right from wrong, and why it doesn’t bother them to kill strangers, their classmates, and themselves. Probably, if we think about it long and hard enough, we can figure it out. I think it has a great deal to do with “WE REAP WHAT WE SOW.” Funny how simple it is for people to trash God and then wonder why the world’s going to hell. Funny how we believe what the newspapers say, but question what the Bible says. Funny how you can send ‘jokes’ through e-mail and they spread like wildfire but when you start sending messages regarding the Lord, people think twice about sharing. Funny how lewd, crude, vulgar and obscene articles pass freely through cyberspace, but public discussion of God is suppressed in the school and workplace. Are you laughing? Funny how when you forward this message, you will not send it to many on your address list because you’re not sure what they believe, or what they WILL think, of you for sending it. Funny how we can be more worried about what other people think of us than what God thinks of us. Pass it on if you think it has merit. If not then just discard it… no one will know what you did. But, if you discard this thought process, don’t sit back and complain about what bad shape the world is in.
God bless you as you share it with friends. No Nation or people can ever survive or succeed without Jesus Christ.
I learned about God’s calling early in my life,
but I did not understand.
Then I heared it, I understood it, I experienced it, I was filled with the Holy Spirit ….
When I was about forty, there was this nagging question:
Is this all?
Is there not more to life?
Didn’t I have once another vision?
In fact, is there any difference between me and a Non-Christian?
I was desperate for a solution,
and it all started with a life-threatening situation
which is even symbolic for our life in general.
This book reports not just testimonies,
but processes, processes God had chosen to train me.
And the reader is directly involved in these processes
to experience God’s calling and purpose.
How to listen to His answers,
if everything seem to be stuck?
Where is my healing?
How do I access divine provision?
Even more, each process happens to be an allegoy, a parable,
and everyone will find his life or situations reflected.
To help recognizing the general meaning, the essence and general outcome is summarized and shown on bold letters.
If you want to refresh your experience of the loving-kindness of your God,
that enables you to have a more intense relationship with Him,
and to avoid any compromise:

we cannot add:
But, we need to follow His Calling
Would you like to know what Transition is all about?
Do you want to manage Your Transition?
Transition embraces the change of
What is Transition
How to Behave in Transition
How to Step Beyond Trantion
Take the example of a caterpillar: When it is transitioning to be a butterfly, it changes identity, but is is also a change of ability and it is a change of environment.
It all starts when we feel uncomfortable in our skin. We realize something has to change in your life Something is going on, similar to what happens with the butterfly.
During a period of a major transition,
Two things may happen:
We are either thinking that we missed out in the past “Why am I confronted with all these new things now?”
Or, it could be that we want to stick to the old. In which case we are not really aware that something new is coming, which is based on internal fight
THREE Steps need to be considered:
Admit: Yes, I am in a transition, this is timely, it is good, it is very good! You are at a perfect time and you‚ and at the perfect place
All this introduces a change of assignment. How does it feel to be in transition?
What had happened to me was, I realized, concepts, strategies I was used to: they did not work anymore! Although I knew THE WORD is true It did not work the way I was used to.
And why? This is the point The Lord is preparing us, drawing us into greater intimacy
He calls us to be closer to Him To get a better revelation about Him A better revelation about God
A deeper revelation about the Father
A deeper revelation about Jesus
A deeper revelation about the Holy Spirit
That we grow and walk differently, based on this deeper intimacy. When we are closer to Him, it will give birth of new revelation If this resonates with you, you are in the process to be transformed, to be transported into new dimensions. Into a a new spiritual realm.
Say YES to that process Without expectation, you might miss it So I ask everyone To be in agreement with all that God wants to do to be in agreement with His process, with loving kindness He is expressing towards you in this very moment.
This message is specifically for women!
Because women are the secret weapon of the Lord!
The Lord has given the command:
The women who proclaim the good tiding are a great host: Kings of armies flee, they flee, and she who remains at home will divide the spoil. The women proclaim the good tidings are a great host: So, the Lord is preparing women right now!
The preparation occurs in a secret place because once the trumpeters sound, He will get them out, and they will do the job he has prepared them for. It is like chess: the Lord has some figures standing, without moved And when the right moment is coming, He moves a certain figure, And the devil is set checkmated. Please do not have any doubt about this process you are in God is taking you on a fast track! He is the one who has called you into service Do not allow any negative thought to develop in you
- About the process
- about people,
- about anything else ...
Appreciate the process, enjoy it Speak good things about yourself You are designed to handle this very well And everyone can do it Do not speak against it Be patient, be patient with yourself, with the process - With in actuality means: Accept God' pace.
Whether we are dealing with obvious distress or hidden distress, the pathway into God's rest requires to go through "zero".
To go through "zero" means to change direction. Passing through "zero" means to submit to God, repent, leave the OLD behind and receive the NEW. Then and only then the pathway opens to enter His Rest, to enter the realm of peace and joy. This is the foundation to be able to recognize what the divine calling is all about.
refers to an obvious need, such as
Sickness and disease
Relationship problems, problems in the marriage, with kids
Job situation, clientele, the boss, co-workers
From the outside everything may look fine, but inwardly one feels empty, something is lacking ... There is some kind of awareness of not living to the potential possible: You may say: "I am not living what God has designed me for. I am not living my Divine calling"
We find DELIVERANCE to Liberty in FOUR Stages – Four Different Situations, sometimes, they come all together, as shown here (from Luke 4: 18)
The first promise Jesus gives is to heal the brokenhearted – A broken heart is vulnerable, little or no energy, everything is a major effort. Someone with a broken heart is often not able to appreciate any goods offered. A broken heart represents incompleteness, weakness …
Once the broken heart is healed, the person may still be in a prison: The promise is: Freedom to the prisoners
Once out of prison, most of the time, sight and vision is lacking. The promise: Recovering of Sight to the blind!
Equipped with sight and vision, we want to move on and fulfill the calling! But at that stage, the oppressor is coming along! The promise:“Liberty to the oppressed!”
With this liberty, we jump on our calling: To preach the gospel to the poor.
