What Christmas Is About - Jesus Incarnate, Transforming Lives
Christmas reminds us of Jesus' birth, as He came to earth to redeem mankind from the clutches of sin, satan and death. Now, Jesus lives, incarnate in His Church - you and me, the body of Christ - and through us, continues to bring release to the captives, setting people free from the bondages of sin and satan.
We have two powerful stories for you of Jesus alive, ministering healing and hope to the brokenness we all experience from time to time as we walk through life. They will touch your heart with awe and wonder during this marvelous Christmas season. Read them, enjoy them and then forward them on to others so they too can be inspired and ministered to. Although both stories came to us in the last couple of weeks from people who have received healing through our ministry, we know that God is ministering healing through all in His Church, and we thank you for the living Christ you represent to those whom you touch!
The first story
is from Valinda, whose heart was miraculously healed through a heavenly encounter as Jesus comforted her concerning the suicide of her son, Kelly. Read how the Lord set her free of fears, frustrations and worries all through one heavenly encounter, which she shares in her wonderful testimony here
The second story
is from Robert, a Vietnam Vet who struggled 35 years with PTSD, and was instantly and completely delivered in one prayer session. You can read Robert's powerful story in his own words here
. God is alive and He is healing His world through you and me, His Church. Let's celebrate the living Christ in the midst of His Church this Christmas season! There is nothing He cannot do!
A third story
is from Tom Zinn as he shares his heavenly encounter during a worship service that brought him hope and healing from depression over losing his teenage daughter. Let God build your faith and encourage your heart as you read his beautiful story here.
End of year giving
As you consider any end of year gifts for tax deductions, we encourage you to plant seeds in CWG Ministries. We are transforming lives, marriages and ministries around the world. You can see from the testimonies in this newsletter the amazing impact hearing God’s voice has on each person who experiences it. Our greatest hope for revival and restoration of our lands is to raise up a Christian army that can hear God’s voice. We invite you to seed into this work, by giving an end of the year gift here, to CWG Ministries. Below is another incredible story from a student receiving courses through our CLU Missions Outreach Program.
Help us create more testimonies like hers!
"My marriage and life has completely changed through learning how to hear God's voice. I never knew that intimacy with God is key to marital and family intimacy. The voice of God has really restored my mental, psychological and spiritual state of being. As you know marriage without good communication is full of ugly and very harsh words. When I got married it was just after I lost my father, a year later I lost my mother. So I had a lot of pain and anger bottled inside. This made it hard for me to communicate properly. I had a problem with saying I am sorry and could stay angry against my husband even when I am on the wrong. The word sorry was not in my mouth. This affected our marriage and romance. Guilt, depression and inner tension is now gone. My emotions were always upset and negative.
“Because I saw changes in my husband's life through journaling, I decided to journal about my condition. God healed my inner hurts and spoke to change. He asked me to repent and honestly apologize when I am wrong and to forgive when wronged by my husband, kids and church members.
“I am a living testimony to the power of journaling and hearing the voice of God. We are now friends more than before. We spend a lot of time together, pray together and do journaling. This situation affected us psychologically, mentally, and spiritually. Now I am free and healed. We now play as a family and peace is reigning in our lives and the voice of God guides our lives. Thanks to Dr. Mark and Patti Virkler and the CLU staff for helping me to know God intimately and hear his voice."

New Product: Healing Waters MP3
If you enjoy soft soaking music in the background as you journal or throughout the day, you will love the Healing Waters MP3 by Pastor Jim French. Jim is an anointed musician, and this music is pleasant to the ears and soothing to the spirit. As a matter of fact, here is a short clip to listen to. See if it doesn't minister healing to your heart!
My definition of good soaking music is all instrumental without big crescendos, and not a song that I know words to (because then I want to sing along in my head, and my goal is for my mind to be free for the Lord to impress His thoughts while I am journaling). So this instrumental fits the bill perfectly.
The cost is only $4.95 and you will be able to instantly download it within a few seconds of the time you place your online order.
Listen to a 2-minute sample of this anointed music and purchase it here.
