    Don,
          thanks for the testimonies.
          The Spirit of the Lord is doing similar things now world wide.
          I too have been transported several times to different cities to
          pray for dead or dying individuals.  I have wondered if such
          folks, when they come alive would have thought an angel
          visited them on their sick bed.  The Lord is gradually graduating
          his saints to do the works of the angels.  Yea, didn't he say we 
          shall  be as angels?
              God bless you.

Don,
    I began to transcribe my radio broadcast concerning the same topic
of "hearing from God" unto the internet.  In there I summarized my
distinction between dreams and visions.  Look under "hearing1.htm" or 
hearing2.htm, hearing3.htm, hearing4.htm.  
From the main page it's listed under "simple.htm" as "God can speak to
you".  
     In short, in dreams, I am in the drama, whereas in visions I am
mere observer.
    Furthermore, with the help of the Holy Ghost, we do get the
meaning of some visions while others will become clearer by and by.
Same with dreams.

He may know a lot about the bible but I don't think he

Xou,
.
    As for your pastor, he is not the only pastor who
think the way he thinks.  Remind him that the Pharisees in the days 
of Jesus couldnot see eye-to-eye with the Lord, because Christ did
not attend their religious school.  So they crucified the Messiah.
    Just seek to know the Lord more for yourself, for the Lord said
he came "to divide fathers from sons, daughters from mothers", 
because he will reveal to one and not to the other, since 
"no man can come to me except the father which has sent 
me draws him" saith the Lord.
    Concerning fasting, take your time and do as much as 
you can, challenging yourself to greater things.  it is 
never easy for any man to miss food.  
We only try to train ourselves to know that "man shall not live 
by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth 
of God".  (Lk.4:4;  Jn.6:65;   ).
God bless you.

Sister Victoria,
    thank you for your email.  Praise the Lord we are fine, and
I have sent the February literature just a day ago, and I 
believe I sent to you also.  Of course you can always read them
on my home page.  How is everybody in the fellowship in Maryland?
Say Hi to Bro. Samuel, and Lola, and all the brethren whose names
are in the book of life.
God bless you.

Hi Xou,    
   thanks for your question.  First, anyone who has accepted Jesus
as Lord and Saviour can participate in the "breaking of bread" or 
(communion, as you call it.) Second, about confessing your sins, if
you are alluding to the type done to a priest in some churches, that
is not what the bible prescribed.  "Confess your faults, one to another,
and pray for one another, that ye may be healed." (James 5:16). We do
have faults, but saints are expected to get out of sins, and sin no
more."If anyman sin we have an advocate with the father, Jesus Christ 
the righteous." (1Jn.2:1-2) "If we confess our sins, he is faithful and 
just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness"
(1Jn.1:9). Therefore we ought to go to the Lord in prayer and confess to
him. However, "if we sin wilfully after we have received the knowledge
of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins, But a certain
fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation which shall devour
the adversaries." (Heb.10:26-27).  (Read 1Jn.3:6-10; 5:18).  Men can not 
forgive the sins, but can pray for one; unless one
offends a man personally, then that man needs to forgive one.  All our
sins are already covered by the blood of Jesus Christ.  However our
spirit will feel bad if already regenerated whenever one sins against
the Lord.  That is why there is a need to go to the Lord and confess to
him and straighten up.  He cleanses from all unrighteousness.  This last
point is important!  Our sins are already covered by the blood of Jesus
Christ! However that is not a liberty to go do whatever. If we are born
again, we are washed.  Hogs will always return to the mud no matter how
many times they are washed.  But saints are holy people, washed by the
blood of Jesus Christ: "And he that is begotten of God keepeth himself,
and that wicked one toucheth him not." (1Jn.5:18).
May the Lord give you understanding.

Sister Victoria,
         thanks for your email.  Read 1Pet.3:1 and Ephe.5:22
and make a commitment to the word that with the Lord's help
you will obey those scriptures as much as lieth within your
strength, for the days grow darker in the world and the enemy's
attack upon the church is in all areas of our lives.  Those
who take the word of God as it is and seriously, will win out;
while those who wish to flow with the new generation's
interpretation of the word will be easily swayed by the forces
of evil that fill the air in these last days.
         The Lord will strengthen and uphold you as you uphold
his word.

God bless you.
Bro. Julius.

Dawn,
    Thanks for sharing your vision with me.
"When he shall appear, we shall be like him, for we shall see him 
as he is." (1Jn.3:2).  
    We shall be transformed into light, as he is light.
