Diminishing The Darkness By Lifting Up the Marvelous
Light Of Jesus Christ
-- by Tim Greenwood
you are familiar with my healing testimony as written in “Walking in
Faith”. However most people don’t know
that translation was part of my healing.
the morning that I had the heart attack at work, I notified my boss that I was
ill and was going home. My coworkers
desperately tried to stop me but I was determined and got in my car and headed
east on the freeway home.
About halfway home traffic
got really bad and I came to a complete stop in the center lane between two big
trucks when I experienced another attack so severe that I could not hold onto
the wheel. My hands fell to my sides
and I felt myself begin to pass out.
Just before I closed my eyes I asked God to “Please just get me
next instant, feeling the car make a hard right-hand turn, tires squealing, I
opened my eyes just in time to see my hood barely miss the still opening garage
door. This caused me to hit the brakes hard just to keep from going through the
back wall of my own garage. I turned
off the engine, got out, had Marcia call the doctor and then had her drive me
much else happened afterwards that I just forgot about what had happened until
did happen? The only explanation was
that God translated me in my car, more than fifteen miles, bypassing congested freeways, offramps
and city streets, from downtown Los Angeles, past three other
cities, right to my own garage in Arcadia in what seemed to be just a few
My purpose for telling you this is to further
illustrate the goodness of God and to encourage you that if He did something
like that for me, then you can expect Him to do great things for you too!

Christians! The time has come to take whatever you have
learned in the classroom of the church out into the battlefields. If you have received Jesus Christ as your
Savior, Lord and King, then you are hereby conscripted into His Majesty’s
TO ALL CHRISTIANS!
Your primary mission will be a rescue mission.
assignment is as follows:
are to report to a good, Spirit filled, Bible teaching, Church, (Training
Facility) of your choice for the next six weeks for intense training and
equipping for battle. Selection of a
good, (Spirit filled, Bible teaching) Church, (Training Facility) is essential
to prepare you to successfully accomplish your mission.
are to attend every class, service, study and training session made available
are to be baptized in water.
are to be baptized in the Holy Spirit.
are to intently read and study the following books: Matthew, Mark, Luke, John,
Acts and the Letters of Paul.
At the end of your training period, you are to read
and follow your Mission Instructions to the letter while continuing weekly
participation in one or more Church class, service, study or training session.
Mission Instructions are found in Mark, Article 16,
paragraphs 15 – 18, (Mark 16:15-18) and reads as follows: "Go into all the world and preach the
good news to all creation.”
You are to report to the battlefield. Part of your
mission is to GO INTO the world, (not out from the world), (this includes going
to your own family, friends, neighborhood, town, area, county, state, country
and other countries), (outside the four walls of the church), and proclaim to
everyone that will stand still long enough to hear the positive benefits of
what King Jesus has done for them.
This is NOT a covert mission. You are to, in every way and at all times,
represent and conduct yourself as an official deputy of His Majesty, King
Jesus. You are to remain in full uniform and on duty at all times.
A full uniform includes a minimum of: a daily
covering of the blood of Jesus, the helmet of Salvation, the breastplate of
Righteousness, the belt of Truth, the shoes of the preparation of the Gospel of
Peace (wholeness) complete with the sword of the Spirit and the shield of
The rules of engagement are as follows:
When engaging our adversary the devil, you are to
move straightforward shoulder-to-shoulder keeping your eyes on King Jesus and
your ears tuned to the Holy Spirit. You
are not to hide, seek cover or retreat.
Do as much damage to the enemy as possible while accomplishing the
primary mission of recovering the lost.
You are never to use the tools and weapons of the enemy. These include, fear, intimidation, guilt and
Mark 16:17 And these signs will accompany those who
believe: In my name: They will drive
out demons; They will speak in new tongues;
Mark 16:18 If they pick up snakes, or ingest deadly
poison, it will not hurt them at all; They will place their hands on sick
people, and they will get well.
The other part of your mission is to then fearlessly
demonstrate the same things that King Jesus demonstrated by laying hands on
people for healing, deliverance and to be filled with the Holy Spirit in the
Name of King Jesus.
16:16 Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not
believe will be condemned.
do your part and rescue as many victims as possible.
of the victims were kidnapped so early in life that that they have no
understanding that they have been abducted by the enemy, and therefore may
refuse to be rescued. But others have
come to realize that they are being held captive and are seeking a way of
person that receives Jesus as Savior, Lord and King will cause great damage and
demoralization in the kingdom of darkness.
This is an ongoing mission.
training you may have gone on a training mission to the mall to “witness” to
people. However, your ongoing mission
is to look for every opportunity, everywhere you go, 24/7, to execute the above
mission for the rest of your life or until you receive reassignment from the
office of King Jesus.
If at this point, you are still unable,
unprepared or ill equipped to commence this mission then you are to report back
to the Church, (Training Facility), or perhaps select another Church, (Training
Facility) and repeat the training and/or equipping needed to accomplish said
Editors Note: Recently while getting ready
for a meeting, I ask the Lord if there was anything that he specificly
wanted me to say or do for Him. He immediatedly answered
with,"Motivate the people to get out of the pews and into the
fields!" The above was an attempt to do just that.
