1438. Occurrence given to Raymond Aguilera on 8 January 2000 at 1:30 PM.
Hello Brothers and Sisters,
I got sick on New Year's Eve and just today I felt well enough to send out this message. I have had many hours of being alone this past week praying and thinking of this New Year. I have tried to stay focused on the up coming South America Mission trip and I have concluded just to go and let the Lord open the doors that need to be opened. My problem is; I am one of those people who wants to know "Why" these places have to be Anointed. Well, during my prayer time with the Lord, the Lord began to speak about going to Japan also and when He started to speak about Africa fear came upon me and I felt so overwhelmed, I quickly changed the subject with the Lord.
I have not set a foot in South America yet and the Lord speaks about Japan and Africa. Well this was too much for me. All that went through my mind was, "Are we that close to the end?"
Then I remembered about the little red haired girl in Israel. The Lord had said that "It", would not happen until the little red haired girl was grown-up!" And this would not be for another 20+ years, but all of this ground Anointing sounds like the ground is being prepared now for other things to happen sooner than the event with the little red haired girl in Israel. Well, this morning, the Lord gave me the scriptures below. I guess for my dumb head.
For those who have said they want to help with the funding of this Mission trip, the approximate costs will be listed below. The travel agency will need funds soon do to the flight date. I will list the places for the South America Mission trip and the dates too. You can send all funds to: Raymond Aguilera, PO Box 20517, El Sobrante, California 94820-0517, USA.
God bless you all, ray
From NIV Bible:
1 Cor 1:18 For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.
1 Cor 1:19For it is written: "I will destroy the wisdom of the wise; the intelligence of the intelligent I will frustrate."
1 Cor 1:20Where is the wise man? Where is the scholar? Where is the philosopher of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world?
1 Cor 1:21For since in the wisdom of God the world through its wisdom did not know him, God was pleased through the foolishness of what was preached to save those who believe.
1 Cor 1:22Jews demand miraculous signs and Greeks look for wisdom,
1 Cor 1:23but we preach Christ crucified: a stumbling block to Jews and foolishness to Gentiles,
1 Cor 1:24but to those whom God has called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God.
1 Cor 1:25For the foolishness of God is wiser than man's wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than man's strength.
1 Cor 1:26Brothers, think of what you were when you were called. Not many of you were wise by human standards; not many were influential; not many were of noble birth.
1 Cor 1:27But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong.
1 Cor 1:28He chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things--and the things that are not--to nullify the things that are,
1 Cor 1:29so that no one may boast before him.
1 Cor 1:30It is because of him that you are in Christ Jesus, who has become for us wisdom from God--that is, our righteousness, holiness and redemption.
1 Cor 1:31Therefore, as it is written: "Let him who boasts boast in the Lord."
