Zombies, Black Butterflies & the Cross

 

Zombies, Black Butterflies and The Cross

As you may have read in my newsletter I recently had a dream about zombies. I’ve never had a dream about them, but I’ve met some walking dead, and at times I’ve battled issues that made me look and feel like a dead woman walking horror.

Recently I had a face to face encounter with a young man who claimed to be a Nazi Christian and claiming there is only one true race. This next sentence will be shocking, but not as shocking as looking at this handsome young man, just from the hospital where  the night before had been in a fight and had half of his ear bit off.  This was a violent battle between two men both whom were given life by a loving creator.

He was standing outside of McDonalds and was using profanity and apologized to me as I walked by. He asked me if I was a Christian and when our conversation turned away from the bitterness and hatred of his belief to the life, death and resurrection of Jesus; he began to curse and tell me to get out of his face.

For the message about Christ’s death on the cross is nonsense to those who are being lost; but for us who are being saved it is God’s power. I Corinthians 1:18 (GNV)

As I looked at this young man and the black butterfly stitches that outlined his half chewed off ear, I thought about the night Jesus was arrested and how His disciple Peter violently took his sword and cut off Malchus’ ear. He was the slave of the high priest. (Read John 18 for the entire story.)

Jesus bent down without a word and picked it up and reattached it. Wow what a miracle!

I feel certain this slave and the others who witnessed this miracle were astounded! This miracle performed by Jesus still wasn’t enough to convince the high priest and others that Jesus was who He said He was.

Jesus was about to demonstrate several other miracles. He started with never opening his mouth to defend himself, was beaten nearly to death, forced to carry his own cross, and was crucified, verified dead and buried. From there He descended into hades, and then rose from the dead, and was seen by many walking, talking and eating. He then ascended into heaven and is now waiting for whosoever will accept Him and become His disciple. It is said that His disciples are known not by their titles, positions of power, race, gender or intellectual ability, but by their love.

As a follower of Jesus, we are to be the “alternative community,” one who rearranges our way of life for others, who learn of His ways, follow His path, eat, pray and serve together, giving away what we are able to help each other. One of our missions here on earth is so outsiders may look at us and say, “We know they are disciples of Jesus because of their love.”

I wish this young man I had met had been open for me to share more, and to allow me to pray for him. His anger and bitterness overcame his desire to be healed for eternity. Even so, I pray he and his companion would come to know the saving, healing, and delivering love of Jesus. I pray this tormented young man sensed Christ’s love in me.

The Man Who Won’t Go Away

20-years-ago-we-had-johnny-cash-bob-hope-and-8651167

Jesus is on my mind today. He is the man who won’t go away. I’ve just started reading the book by John Ortberg, Who Is This Man (Published 2012) and I haven’t even got past the first page when the reality of life and death and the impact our lives make on the individuals whom we influence, and the legacy we leave for generations to come. Are they temporal or are they eternal?

Ortberg writes:

“Normally when someone dies, their impact on the world immediately begins to recede. As I write this our world marks the passing of digital innovator Steve jobs. Someone wrote that ten years ago our world had Bob Hope, Johnny Cash, and Steve Jobs; now we have no Jobs, no Cash and no Hope. But Jesus inverted this normal human trajectory, as he did so many others. Jesus’ impact was greter a hundred years after his death than during his life; it was greater still after five hundred years; after a thousand years his legacy laid the foundation for much of Europe; after two thousand years he has more followers in more places than ever.”

Thus, the title of Ortberg’s book, Who Is This Man. I’ve also been reading and studying some ancient writings and text where Jesus not only came to bring salvation, redemption and healing to mankind, but to destroy the works of his enemies.

Jesus was transfiggured on Mt. Herman, then stood at the foot of the “rock” and highest mountain in Israel; Mt. Hermon, also named after the home of the god known as Baal-Hermon, Much natural and spiritual wickedness was practiced there. Read More

Jesus death and resurrection took authority over this high place and we read about this below.

Miracles, Healings – Dinner with Sarah

Testimony Time! Meet my dinner date Geo. He asked me, “Could you put me on your social media?” You bet I will!!😀

When I first moved to my apartment complex mid February Geo saw me sitting in the lobby and noticed my smile and the cross on my shirt (he tells me every time.)😊 He came over and asked me to pray for him. He had a deep infection in his knee. He had both legs over a year ago amputated due to sickness and had only 1 prosthetic leg. In order to get the other prosthetic leg his knee had to heal from the infection. That he had for months. Jesus and I prayed for him and we became buddies. I would bring him breakfast, we talked for hours in the lobby, he would ask me about my relationship with Jesus, I would make him dinner and then about 6 weeks ago I heard he was back in the hospital pretty much on his death bed again.

I said, “NO!”  We prayed for him. He got out of the hospital and came back home and was all better and the infection left his body!

He received his 2’nd prosthetic leg and he showed me this evening how he could get up walk a few steps and back in his wheel chair. 😀 He said let me show off what I can do now, he said it’s not pretty but I can walk. I looked at him with tears and said your right it’s not pretty it’s beautiful! 😍 I told Him I grilled steak for the first time ever and said I had way to much and asked him if he wanted to join me for dinner. He was delighted and as we were sitting outside others joined.

All I can say is,

I am so thankful God answers my prayers, “Lord send the broken and hurting ones so we can love on them and they can encounter you.”

More Miracles …

A door opened for my testimony to come out and people were like,

Wait, “What you partied, dated the wrong guys you did all that?” Saying it as they were in shock!

I said, “Yes I did, but the beautiful thing is when you surrender your life to Jesus He takes it and turns ashes into beauty.”

Next thing Jesus and I are prophesying and praying for the ones that came to the table. I’m not sharing details because I want to be respectful to my new friends. Tears were steaming and Oh! the freedom and chains that were broken off of people this evening. As I looked at my phone it’s almost 11pm. We started dinner at 7pm. The crazy thing is I had plans to deep clean my apartment this evening but when we allow God to lead the way then deep cleaning will come another day this week because Jesus wanted to deep clean the hearts of those that needed a taste of His love.

I am beyond thankful for this community of people here. 🎼We Are Family🎼🙂Also, I’m asking for you guys to be in agreement for a miracle for a friends mom that fell off a cliff.  Sarah Deeds, Associate/Youth Pastor Zion Christian Fellowship

About Sarah Deeds

The first time I met Sarah was when I was the Pastor and Director of Communications for Faith Life Now in New Albany, Ohio. Sarah was raising money to fund her trip and school at Heidi Baker’s ministry Iris Global in Mozambique S. Africa. Little did I know how special this Batzion (daughter of Zion) would become to me. Literally the Lord laid her on my heart to pray, support and keep her in my heart especially while she was away.

Since Sarah returned and I moved from Ohio, so much has happened in the natural but our spirits are still connected as one in the Lord. She is now an associate and youth pastor in Ohio and has so many other wonderful and miracle testimonies. She is not afraid to pray and tell anyone and everyone the source of her joy, strength and salvation. Please keep Sarah in your prayers now that you have met her. Also, please keep the ministries of Iris Global, Beacon of Hope, Project Purpose and fellow believers as well as the people of Mozambique. Much is happening to try to destroy God’s workers and his work. Read More Here
