THE POWER OF JESUS
From: Evang. John Aakiel.

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ, This is Ferd@2jesus, I want to give Jesus a praise report. Also I want to make sure that you know what you possess as a Christian. So many Christians go through life and never figure out what they possess. Isn't that a shame as Jesus paid such a price for us to get it.

I will tell you a story about a man in Africa. His name is John. He is an Evangelist. He is a man of God. He has saved many people. But never really realized who he was in Christ. What he really possessed. John came to 2jesus with a problem. He had two children that he had taken in. They were very sick. They both needed an operation to live. John had taken them to the hospital. He gave them all the money that he had. He was still short $100. Without the extra $100, they would not operate. He had come 2jesus for the money.

To send $100 to save two children seems a small price to pay. I probably should have sent it ... However that is not what the Holy Spirit led me to send. I immediately sat down and wrote this letter.


Dear John,

Jesus does not want these children to die ... You have the ability to heal them through Christ. You are working for Christ with all of your heart. You have faith in Him. You know the power that is in Him. But do you believe that Jesus has given it to you? Look at these words from Jesus. Please read them and fill your spirit with them.

Mark 11:23-24
23 For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.
24 Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.

John, Jesus is talking to you. Have you ever thought who you are in Christ?

Eph. 2:6, God has raised us up together with Christ.
In God's eyes you are seated with Jesus at His right hand. You are in Christ, just as Christ is in you here on earth.

1Cor. 6:17, He that is joined to the Lord is one spirit.
You and Jesus could be no closer together. Jesus is not just with you, you are part of each other.

1Cor. 12:27, Now you are the body of Christ.
What does that mean? We Christians here on earth are the body of Christ. He is the Head. The head does the thinking and the leading, and the body carries out the work. So when Jesus wants something done here on earth it is up to us to do it. How could we? Easy, with Jesus' Spirit joined to ours He is transferring His authority and power to us to do His will. But we must except it and be obedient to His commands.

Matt. 28:20, "And I am always with you."
All power belongs to Jesus ... and Jesus is always with us. So we have that power in us at all times.

Eph. 3:20, His power is at work in us.
His power is not dormant! It is at work. That means we are, or should be using it. How many of us are really using it? Isn't it time we realized what Jesus has done for us and start doing what He intended. Being His body here on Earth and carrying out the Father's will.

HOW MUCH POWER IS THAT?
Matt. 28:18, Jesus said, "All power is given to me in Heaven and Earth."
Eph. 11:19-20, His power is like He used to raise Jesus. Hallelujah!!!
That is the power to raise the dead. That is the power to heal the sick. That is the power to trample the Devil and all evil forces that come against us. That is the power to be the Body of Christ.
THAT IS THE POWER OF GOD! ... THANK YOU JESUS ...

WHAT HAS GOD MADE YOU? 1 JOHN 3:1 HOW GREAT IS THE LOVE THE FATHER HAS LAVISHED ON US, THAT WE SHOULD BE CALLED CHILDREN OF GOD! AND THAT IS WHAT WE ARE!

But you can only use a gift that you know you have, and that you accept. And we can only use it through Jesus, because of God's grace and love for us.

IT TOOK ME 12 YR. OF STUDY BEFORE GOD REVELED TO ME WHO I WAS IN CHRIST.

John, when you can get those verses down in your spirit you will be able to use the power that Jesus has given you.

Go to that hospital and lay your hands on those children and say, "In the name of Jesus be healed." and do not doubt, start thanking God for their healing. By the time the doctor gets there he will be asking what happened to them ... Thank you Jesus ...

I am not trying to tell you things to be smart, like I am wiser than you. No, you already know these things. But sometimes we get so busy in the natural that we forget (or the devil hides it from us) what Jesus has given us. We can not do all that He wants from us without the tools that He has given us.

Give it a try. Go pray for these children. I will pray for you and the children on this end. Keep your faith strong. For as you go out to use the power that Jesus has given you the devil will try to steal it from you with doubt. For if he can do that he will have defeated you and you will not be able to stand against him. So always remember. I Jn 4:4 Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.

Your brother in Christ, Ferd


A week later I got this letter from John ...


Dear Brother in Christ,

Greetings and salutation in the marvelous name of our heavenly father, and our Lord Jesus Christ, who suffered for our sins that He might bring us to God. And by Him to be saved. I give thanks to the father for His infinite love and grace He has toward us, may He bless and keep you from evil, may His face shine upon you and peace.

I thank God so much for His victory given us in Christ Jesus and for His healing power of His word, that has broken every stronghold in our lives. My visit to the children was blessed, I examine the anointing power of His word as it was proclaimed. I prayed and fasted through the power of the Holy spirit and the Lord spoke to me so beautifully, He said by His stripe ye have healed, I felt it with gratitude and I rose to the full power of my faith for healing, and I laid my hand on the children and prayed, I felt and believe it in my heart that the children is going to be heal, and I spoke forth His word and the healing came forth in their body and they where completely healed. One of the children said that he saw a great man, holding His hand and said to him be healed my son, for I am the Lord thy God. After I heard this from the children, I began to give praises and honor, to His Holy name, the doctors where so surprise to see the manifestation of His healing power to the children, they were again tested by the doctors and it showed that they were alright, healed. From them, the word of God was confirmed, the doctor believed and embrace Jesus as the Lord of their life. After sharing Christ with them in the hospital, I promised to come back to them for a visit and come along with the word of God, the Bible, to share with them to build up their faith and knowing more of His perfect revelation to man kind, thanks be to God, the Healer of our refuge, He said His word, "lift up your eye from the battle to the victory, for Christ is already victor, although we do not see all things under His feet they are there, Heb., 2:8.

I thank you for your marvelous work in the Lord and of your given heart. What a great blessing to them that love God and unto them who are called according to His purpose. Please do try and send us the Bibles, there are more people turning to Christ, that needed the word of God to grow in the knowledge of Christ.

We are so grateful to the Lord for His inspiration and His pleasant word that bring faith and comfort and for the healing to the sick. May the Lord bless and reward you abundance for your given heart and of your kind gesture unto His lordship. Thanks again for your love and support to the work of His ministry for everybody to be saved. We love and pray for you continuously.

Yours in His vineyard,
EVANG. JOHN ATAKIEL


My Brothers and Sisters, that is the power of God. Jesus is there beside you right now saying, Come to me and I will make you fishers of men. Come to me and I will dwell in you and give you my power and authority to be Kings here on earth.

Thank you Jesus ... Ferd@2jesus

Ferd Sebastian, 2Jesus
