[RISK NO. 85]

Cole met up with me because he was curious about what Gods doing in my life and he heard from one of his friends how God used me to pray for a friend’s leg to grow out. He loves The Lord and desires to grow in his relationship with him but he has doubts. But that changed tonight!

After 2 hours of talking he then asks me if I can pray for his tendonitis. And also for his legs. Back. And hips. Little did he know that his left leg was actually 1inch shorter! - Tendonitis, gone and both hands healed! Legs, back pain and hips pain gone because of his left leg that grew and aligned with the right!

God just orchestrated this whole thing! Here’s a guy who loves The Lord but still had doubts in his faith, Jesus shows up and showed him what sup! Cole is healed not just physically but his heart too!

 Jesus is magnified and God is glorified!
But seriously though, If I can walk this thing, ANYBODY CAN WALK THIS THING! Video is up on my Facebook watch it!

[RISK No. 56]I saw David walking back and forth holding a sign that says “Need Food. God love” just outside the 99 cents store parking lot. I thought “well let me buy him some food and then I can go and buy what I need from the store. I approached him and said, “let me buy you some food is a sandwich okay?” With a huge smile he said ,”yes!” As we were walking towards subway, I noticed that he’s limping which caused him to walk so slow. - We got to the store And got him his sandwich I asked if his back or legs were in pain. Turns out it was. I offered to pray and he was so excited because he believes in God and prayer. So I prayed and commanded for his back, legs and knees to be healed. After praying he felt so much better and he felt all the pain start to diminish.  We kept talking and I found out that he’s a believer too and loves Jesus! So awesome. I think we might have talked for an hour. But before i said goodbye I asked for his back and legs just to check if he was still in pain and he said “i feel a lil bit of pain in my back. My hips aren’t aligned that’s why I’m walking this way. And then the Holy Spirit gave me this impression that one of his legs are shorter and I need to command for it to grow and align with the other. I said David one of your legs is shorter and the other is longer lets find a chair and have you sit down and I’m gonna ask Jesus to grow your short leg and aligned it with the other. He sat on a chair. Lift his legs up and sure enough left leg is shorter. I began to praying and commanded the leg to grow and to my amazement the leg grew and David felt it too! I asked him to stand and walk around and he said “my back feels way even better this time! And my legs are feeling so much better! Wow! Thank you!” We both rejoiced and praised God! He was so thankful how God restored his back and legs. My friends, our God doesn’t show any partiality. small or great, young or old, rich or poor, it doesn’t matter. They are His children and He wants them all to be reconciled back to Him through meeting their physical or spiritual needs. It’s all about seeing people through the Father’s eyes and not yours. Jesus, thank you for using someone like me to show love to others. Even though I feel so small and faithless, you never fail to show and display your power. It’s true when you said that ‘..even greater things you’ll be doing because I’m going to The Father!” I take hold of that because thats a trustworthy promise from you! Continue to use me, grow me and empower me to live a life worthy to be called your servant, disciple, and friend. :)

One of the reasons why I love doing my devotions in public places is because people can see that I’m reading the bible. Either another Christian would approach me and say something like, “That’s sure is a great book brother!” or if it’s a non-christian they usually say something like, “What you reading?” they know it’s a bible but what they really mean is, “Why are you reading that? you believe that stuff”? which I don’t really mind. I love engaging with people!
David sat next to me and we started talking about religion and all different kinds of faith. He’s one of those ‘coexist’ people who believed that all religions point to the same God. I wasn’t gonna debate with him or prove that Jesus is the only way to God, but I did say that Christianity is different from all ‘religions’ because God came down to us, instead of us working our way up to God. 
I got a word of knowledge from God that David had a back and knee pain. While we were still talking, I politely asked if he had any pain on his back or knee, turns out he did have pains on both. He was puzzled how I knew about it. I simply said, “God told me.” This time he looked terrified. ha!
I said, “You want the pain to go away? Let me pray for you.” He didn’t want it at first but I told him that it won’t be that long. I told him to give me 3secs. Just 3 secs of his time and that’s it. He agreed. I prayed, rebuked the pain on both back and knees. I asked him to check it out and he said he felt better and then he goes, “Well, the pain is sporadic. Comes and goes.” But I told him that God is healing him already. Even though David was in denial of the healing that took place on his back and knees I blessed him and told him that God loves him.
A lot of times we try to win an argument or debate against a non-believer through eloquent words or stacked up biblical knowledge. I think there’s a place and time for that but hear what Apostle Paul had to say about this:

I did not come with eloquence or human wisdom as I proclaimed to you the testimony about God.[a] 2 For I resolved to know nothing while I was with you except Jesus Christ and him crucified. 3 I came to you in weakness with great fear and trembling. 4 My message and my preaching were not with wise and persuasive words, but with a demonstration of the Spirit’s power, 5 so that your faith might not rest on human wisdom, but on God’s power. - 1 Corinthians 2

What if we actually just talk, walk and live like how Jesus lived, I think that’s more effective than actually just doing the whole ‘talking’ I’m not disregarding biblical knowledge and wisdom but what I’m arguing is that Jesus was all about words followed with actions. So let’s be like Jesus and not settle for mere Christianity.

[Risk No.47-50] 
Somehow Sunday is like the biggest day that the Lord chooses to use me to do healings. 2 of my friends had a back problem and I simply prayed over their back and commanded healing to take place and it happened just like a snap of a finger!
Another friend of mine had a sore throat and stuffy nose. Same thing, I prayed for her and commanded the sickness and soreness to leave her body and after praying she tried to swallow and her eyes got big, that means the soreness and the stuffyness, GONE! 
And the last one, my friend had a broken wrist. I prayed for her 3 times but she never received. It’s not her fault, it’s on my end. I think because this time I was faced with a bigger ‘condition’ it’s a broken bone. When I saw her wrist my intellectual overpower my faith and that got in the way. But she was grateful for what I did. 
Lord Jesus, I thank you for the many victories you’ve given me in the area of healing and miracles. I pray and ask that you strengthen my faith even more and that my faith would grow past the size of a mustard seed so that not only I can move a mountain, but maybe in the future, I can move myself outta the equation quickly. Thank you for loving me and being patient with me Jesus.

Meet Tom, he’s one of your drummers here @3crosses church. During band practice he mentioned about his shoulder injury (Rotator Cuff) and that they were hurting. He injured it 8 years ago and couldn’t do much movement. But guess what, Jesus is stronger than any physical pains. 
I prayed, thanked the Father and commanded healing to take place on Tom’s shoulder and now he was able to do movement he couldn’t do 8 years ago. We both rejoiced and praised God and when his wife came he shared what happened, she was just in shocked. ha! 
Goodbye shoulder injury, hello shoulders and Praise Jesus! :)

EDITORS NOTE: Majority of my followers here on tumblr are gals and I’ve received tons of questions from you all in regards to sex, love and relationships. Due to the fact that I don’t have time to answer, here’s a letter that I found from this website called (GoodWomenProject.com) I hope that this letter would bring an enormous encouragement to your heart and a hope for your future. I pray that you come to an understanding that in Christ there’s restoration, healing, redemption and freedom.To My Future Wife,
You’re beautiful. You’re stunning. You’re absolutely perfect in more ways than you know.
I know you’re out there; I know you’re living life just as I am mine. If not now, then someday you will read this letter and gain some insight into who I was before we married. That being said, it might be the only aspect of my life before we met to make you proud.
I say you won’t be proud because frankly I’m not proud either. My heart breaks knowing how I betrayed you with those other women. I regret every touch, every kiss, and every fake “I love you.” I was so consumed with lust that I had mistaken it for love, when you are the only woman I want to ever truly love. For everything, I want to apologize. 
Whether it was teenage drunkenness, images on a computer screen, or fantasies in my mind, I defiled the essence of who a woman was. I deliberately turned my back on my calling from God and chose immediate satisfaction. Satisfaction that withered as soon as my pants were back on; satisfaction that left a bowling ball-sized guilt in my chest. She was a physical means to a lustful end, and I had taken advantage of a sinful opportunity. I didn’t see her as a daughter of Christ, and I was becoming her future husband’s greatest enemy. I didn’t treat her body as a temple and took from her what only one man deserved. At the end of the day, my heart was broken for this woman and shattered for you.
If you were in the room, I can only imagine your reaction. You probably wouldn’t watch, you certainly would not want to. Youd probably feel betrayed, like I was cheating on you in front of your eyes. You’d probably be angry, ready to slap me and kick her out of the room for stealing my affection. You’d probably feel your heart being ripped from your body, dropped to the floor, and spat on. You’d probably cry out to God for mercy not to watch, forgiveness for me, and the strength to move on. You’d probably feel broken, expecting more than just an apology. It may never be enough, but it’s all I can say – I’m sorry.
I can see the tears knowing I took from you what only you deserve. You deserve a husband that honors you in his words, thoughts, and actions. I have not been that, and I have begged God for his forgiveness. As promised, he has forgiven me, and I hope you can forgive me, too.
This is a poem I wrote to you, titled What I Undeserve.

What I Undeserve
as i watch the sun rise and the weary sun set, it reminds me of your eyes all dressed in regret. not regretful of your past, but regretful of mine, knowing that it’s been all but divine.
He has chosen to forgive me long long ago, with a heart of compassion that i see you bestow. its one of many reasons i get lost in your soul, trying to save the heart you’ve inadvertently stole.
i can’t wait til the day i see your shining face all dressed in white at a methodical pace. walking toward me to begin our life as one, blessed by the Father, Spirit, and Son.

You are what I don’t deserve. God’s grace will bring us together when I have done absolutely nothing to deserve it. Yet I suppose it wouldn’t be grace if I did.
My prayer, at this present time, is that each day God is preparing my heart for you. Marriage is for life, so may what we’ll have last forever. I pray that Christ is not only your Lord, but that He is also your Savior, blessing you with the fruits of His Spirit. My worry is that if you’re in love with Him, then I will be such a disappointment. So I pray that each and everyday I will become less like myself and more like Christ, and that the fruits of His Spirit will also grow in me to naturally honor both Him and you, his daughter.
I know you’re not perfect either. I know you’ve made your mistakes too, perhaps with sins very similar to mine. If your heart is broken, I pray God will repair it. If you’re burdened from sin, I pray He will take away the guilt. Someday I want to look you in the eyes, forgiven, forgiving, and sharing with you a love the past cannot hinder.
I can’t wait to know you inside and out. I want to hear all your favorite stories, music, and movies. I can’t wait to meet your family and learn who you were before we met. I praise God for your beautiful soul and the blessings He will pour into my life through you. Someday we will share a life together. We’ll move on from the past, love every moment of the present, and gratefully await all the memories of the future.

A lot of people have asked me how is it that I’m in such good shape? They ask me how many times I work out in a week. Or sometimes I get questions like,‘Why exactly do you work out and what do you do when you work out?’
This post is to give you a good balance of what it’s like to work out in a healthy way and not allowing yourself to get caught up in the vanity of always wanting to look good. I’ll give you my stand point of working out based on my own experience and observations. So let’s get started shall we? :)So what’s my stand point about working out and staying fit? Well working out regularly definitely has some great benefits to our physical bodies. If you’re an athlete or someone who is physically active, you can agree with me on this one that when you work out you feel more energized, healthy and obviously fit.There are a lot of reason why people work out:
Some people work out because they need to be in shape for sports.
Some people workout because their health is declining and their doctor’s recommend them to stay active.
Others work out on a regular basis because it’s part of their daily healthy routine.
lastly some people workout because it’s their addiction.
I’m not gonna talk about all the different reasons, but what I’m gonna tackle today is that as a Christian, how is working out beneficial to us not just physically but spiritually?The Bible says:

for while bodily training is of some value, godliness is of value in every way, as it holds promise for the present life and also for the life to come - 1timothy 4:8

We can’t deny the fact that working out is indeed a valuable discipline to our daily lives. It’s not a matter of being vain or conceited. Just because someone is working out and staying fit doesn’t mean that person is conceited. But for us as Christians the main purpose and reason why we should work out and stay healthy is not necessarily just for the purpose of improving the quality of our bodies so that other people will notice and admire us, but instead we work out and stay healthy to improve our physical health so that we will possess more physical energy to devote to physical duties and spiritual goals. Such as prayer, fasting, worship, evangelism, work, school etc.
Brothers and Sisters, change your mind and attitude towards working out. 
We need to Work out so that we can Live out the Gospel of Christ.If you’re outta shape and you try to run 5 miles, I bet you, you won’t last. It’s the same thing for us, don’t expect yourself to have all the energy that you need in order to accomplish work, school, or even ministry work if you don’t sleep well, eat right and get enough dose of exercise. We are ought to be responsible as to how we take care of our bodies. Just as much as we feed food to our soul by reading God’s word, we need to feed our bodies and take care of it in order to sustain ourselves through out the day.
And lastly It’s important that we remember to take care of our bodies because it’s a gift from God. So many people in different parts of the world don’t have the access to the things that we have and yet we take it for granted. Let’s challenge ourselves and enjoy God’s creation. Take a quick walk or go for a run. If you have arms and legs use them and don’t waste.
 At the end of the day, we are to honor God with our bodies and we can’t just let our bodies deteriorate and neglect it. Always strive for healthiness not just physically but spiritually as well.

Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your body.” - 1 Corinthians 6:19-20

In Christ,Mark Muldez.

A lot of people have asked me how is it that I’m in such good shape? They ask me how many times I work out in a week. Or sometimes I get questions like,

‘Why exactly do you work out and what do you do when you work out?’

This post is to give you a good balance of what it’s like to work out in a healthy way and not allowing yourself to get caught up in the vanity of always wanting to look good. I’ll give you my stand point of working out based on my own experience and observations. So let’s get started shall we? :)

So what’s my stand point about working out and staying fit? Well working out regularly definitely has some great benefits to our physical bodies. If you’re an athlete or someone who is physically active, you can agree with me on this one that when you work out you feel more energized, healthy and obviously fit.

There are a lot of reason why people work out:

  • Some people work out because they need to be in shape for sports.
  • Some people workout because their health is declining and their doctor’s recommend them to stay active.
  • Others work out on a regular basis because it’s part of their daily healthy routine.
  • lastly some people workout because it’s their addiction.

I’m not gonna talk about all the different reasons, but what I’m gonna tackle today is that as a Christian, how is working out beneficial to us not just physically but spiritually?

The Bible says:

for while bodily training is of some value, godliness is of value in every way, as it holds promise for the present life and also for the life to come - 1timothy 4:8

We can’t deny the fact that working out is indeed a valuable discipline to our daily lives. It’s not a matter of being vain or conceited. Just because someone is working out and staying fit doesn’t mean that person is conceited. But for us as Christians the main purpose and reason why we should work out and stay healthy is not necessarily just for the purpose of improving the quality of our bodies so that other people will notice and admire us, but instead we work out and stay healthy to improve our physical health so that we will possess more physical energy to devote to physical duties and spiritual goals. Such as prayer, fasting, worship, evangelism, work, school etc.

Brothers and Sisters, change your mind and attitude towards working out.

We need to Work out so that we can Live out the Gospel of Christ.

If you’re outta shape and you try to run 5 miles, I bet you, you won’t last. It’s the same thing for us, don’t expect yourself to have all the energy that you need in order to accomplish work, school, or even ministry work if you don’t sleep well, eat right and get enough dose of exercise. We are ought to be responsible as to how we take care of our bodies. Just as much as we feed food to our soul by reading God’s word, we need to feed our bodies and take care of it in order to sustain ourselves through out the day.

And lastly It’s important that we remember to take care of our bodies because it’s a gift from God. So many people in different parts of the world don’t have the access to the things that we have and yet we take it for granted. Let’s challenge ourselves and enjoy God’s creation. Take a quick walk or go for a run. If you have arms and legs use them and don’t waste.

At the end of the day, we are to honor God with our bodies and we can’t just let our bodies deteriorate and neglect it. Always strive for healthiness not just physically but spiritually as well.

It’s sad but true. I had a chat with my co-worker who’s lesbian and I asked her what she think about Christians. She said 'Hypocrites.' I had to apologize right then and there and I even had to admit myself that I am too.
There was a recent study about the top 3 perceptions of Christians.
Anti-gay
Judgmental
Hypocritical
This is just so sad. I told my co-worker that God’s message is simple and it’s spelled in 4 words. L O V E 
God is love and if we are God’s people we are to love other people instead of being ANTI, JUDGMENTAL, or HYPOCRITICAL. I’m not saying that we should condone sin or any bad behaviors etc, but what I’m saying is that if you want someone to come to know Christ, then extend love and grace towards that person. Just remember all of us are sinners and we need a Savior. 
You’re right, I don’t have this all figured out but I’m reminded today that Jesus came to seek and save the lost, not the perfect so why do we sometimes act like we’re so perfect and all that and think we’re better than everyone else when we’re not?
Sorry for the rant. It was just on my heart tonight. I hope you hear me out on this one.
Grace and Love in Christ,Mark Muldez

Father,

Sometimes it’s hard for me to see and understand the lengths that you went through just to show me how much you love me and how much you desire to have a relationship with me. You died on the cross for my sins and you rose from the grave to prove that You are victorious over sin and death. I serve a God who is sovereign, merciful, gracious and abounding in steadfast love. Would you give me the strength to love you and to follow you with everything that I’ve got. To make you not just my top priority but my ONE & ONLY priority in life.

To You I give all the praise and Glory forever. AMEN!

This is my dog tag that has been dangling in my car for years now. I got this back in 2007 when I came to the Lord Jesus Christ. I was reminded again by the Holy Spirit the Simplicity of the Gospel and at the same time the Power to CHANGE LIVES. It really is simple and people complicate it way too much.
God’s message is LOVE and He showed that through His son Jesus Christ when He died on the cross for YOU and ME. And rose from the grave 3 days later to prove that He is victorious over SIN and death therefore who ever put their faith in Christ will not only be victorious over sin and death but will have Eternal Life. Life everlasting.
First step is BELIEVE and put your faith in Christ.

If you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord” and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be SAVED. - Romans 10:9

 Second step is FOLLOW His examples and abide in His word.

“If any of you wants to be my follower, you must turn from your selfish ways, take up your cross daily, and follow me. - Luke 9:23

And any form of works or serving are done in faith and compelled by love because He first loved us. And Seriously this is the basic principle of Christianity. It really is that simple.
So If you’re a Christian and you heard/saw something different than this, I really suggest that you get a bible, read His word and wrestle with your ‘faith’ or seek a pastor/mentor.
If you’re not a Christian and you’re reading this and saying, ‘wait a minute, that’s Christianity? I saw/heard something different compare to what this guy is saying’ — Well whatever that is that you heard/saw from other ‘Christians’ if there’s one thing that I want you to know it’s this: 
There’s a God who created everything in this world and that includes YOU. The world that we are living now just didn’t POP out of nowhere. There’s a Creator. Just like your iPhone just didn’t POP randomly in your hand, APPLE created it. So if a phone has a creator, what more for the world? just think about that for a second.
He knows everything about you. Your struggles and success. Your pain and problems. And He wants to change that. He wants to have a relationship with you, walk with you, cry with you, fight with/for you, love you, take care of you, guide/lead you, fill you with joy, love and purpose…  by simply believing and putting your faith and trust in Jesus Christ. 
Would you like to do that? Just say a simple genuine prayer asking Him to forgive you from all your sins and surrendering your life and allowing Christ to take over your life. And that from this point on you will follow Him all the days of your life. — or if that’s too hard and complicated but you really wanna know more about this guy Jesus, message me and I will pray for you.In Christ, Mark M.P.S. - If you’re a Christian, re-blog and share the gospel.

God,

I don’t deserve an ounce or a fraction of all the things that You’ve given me and I am forever in awe of Your unfailing love and grateful of Your amazing grace. Truly You are more than enough for me.
