SORT BY Relevancy
Pope Gregory the Great (604 A. D.) explained it by pointing out that such charismatic signs were “necessary in the first days of faith, but not in later years”(Homiliae in Evanfelia, Hom 29.4).
The Holy Spirit is poured out upon the recipient through the invocation of the Bishop. During the Easter Vigil the Priest is authorized to Confirm by proxy for the Bishop.
What a great blessing and honor it was to participate in this process while serving in Iraq.
In Iraq I was graced to be one of the
leading Catechists is Baghdad as we Confirmed all of the Candidates and Catechumens.
The miracle is that all those receiving this great Sacrament receive the Holy Spirit with all the blessings, as those from the beginning.
Pope Pius states in his encyclical, Mediator Dei, 11/20/47, “…that we learn of confirmation through its liturgy is significant. This highlights the importance of liturgy as a means of knowing and transmitting religious teaching.” As water is used in baptism, olive oil, perfumed with balsam is used in Confirmation, the Sacrament of the Holy Spirit. It is Pentecost extended throughout the world, perpetuated and made ever present in the church. It is a call to spread the Kingdom of Christ, to spread the message of salvation.
When you can rest in the belief and knowledge that God keeps His promises, this should be more than enough. Following Sarah’s actions as she provided her husband Abraham with a child out of sync with God’s promise and timing will lead us to uncertain turmoil because we jumped the gun. God’s promises never change unlike the creations He made. We human kind will change our minds, we change Politics, Religion and churches at a whim, but the Eternal God never changes and we should trust in that and receive the security in knowing our Creator has made a direction in providing a way for us. The Eternal God provided a way in Yahusha / (Jesus) the Messiah to follow our Teacher of teachers as he gave no ear to Satan while preparing his Spirit 40 days in the desert leading to the greatest sacrifice.
Yahusha (Jesus) came under attack as we come under them today. At the opening of lies from the Adversary, Yahusha (Jesus) went right to the word and spoke, “It is written”. We as Believers in the Most High God have no ears for the tricks and lies of our enemy. Follow Yahusha, the Master when he spoke the words and with no laps of memory knowing the Everlasting God is in control.
A path for us is already laid out filled with hurdles, detours and road blocks and knowing it is done gives us power to overcome with authority as Yahusha (Jesus) the Messiah laid out the blueprint for our lives. We know now there is nothing that we could not get through peacefully if only we go to the word and say “It is written” and rest in knowing, it is already done.

Do you feel you are humble and your prayers are far from God's ears? Why? You may feel that God is causing you to wait endlessly to answer you prayers. Why? Do you feel you did everything you could do to get your prayers answered and still you are missing something? Have you ever said,"Lord I can not wait any longer and you want to take things into your own hands?" Do you feel your prayers are a waste of time? Do you feel there is no purpose to your prayers? Are you wondering about the type of prayer you should say to God? Do you feel like a mimic in your prayer life? How many times should you pray a day? Is group prayer more effective? Does right timing have an effect on your prayer life? How does prayer change things? How does prayer life affect your personal growth and development? Do you have to read the Bible to have an effective prayer life? These questtions and others will be answered. I will play some more of my secret songs given to me by God. Our guest Danelle and Michael will add some information to prayer questions. Now listen whole-heartedly! If you are interested in receiving a CD of the music write: PMissick5@aol.com, there is a limited amount so don't waste your time.
Tonight we'll be discussing why human beings struggle to change their minds; even when they're shown evidence to the contrary.
Jared and Darbi will talk about this week's annoyances and how a secular charity found itself in hot water.
Logicast is a weekly radio show/podcast that airs every Thursday @ 9:00 PM EST/8:00 PM CST

Do they? Do last guys (or people for that matter) finish last? Are they the last to be picked when there is a 'picking' to be done? Are nice people relegated to the bottom of the pile while others climb the ladder a lot quicker? Are nice people dumped on because they seem to be easier targets compared to others? Are nice guys forgotten when it comes to picking celebrating team successes? Are nice boys and girls the easiest to reject?
Hopefully, this show will help answer all, or at least most of these questions - and more.
St. Peter hears the cock crow three times and knows that Christ's prediction of his action comes to pass......
Have you ever wondered.....why a rooster? Do I get confirmation of my sinfulness in such clear ways? Can I do anything to avoid the cock crowing in my life?
Join us this week for our discussion
Not your Mother's radio show. Some call it a discussion, some say a debate, you decide. Tonight, Netanyahu’s race in Israel, where does he stand? March Madness, is the future attorney general sitting in the back of the Senate bus during the confirmation process?, McCoy says Eagles overreacted by signing free agents DeMarco Murray and Ryan Mathews. Presidential race started yesterday, guess who announced first? Join us Tuesday @ 7:15pm, EST
Communication Through Inspiration
Close Encounters of the Crustacean Kind
From my book:
Evolution Through Contact – Becoming a Cosmic Citizen.
How do Higher Dimensional beings and Extraterrestrials communicate with us? It could be through intuition and inspiration. Perhaps many of us are actually going to “Night School”, and yet the memories of that are screened from our consciousness until the time is right. That strong urge you are getting to work on some project is a form of communication, perhaps relating to something they have trained you for or given you a download on how to do. It might even be something important towards pushing us over the top towards advancing to the next higher dimension as a civilization.
For me, an event I will describe triggered an outflowing of Poetry and writing that resulted in my book. I know I had help on a number of levels, and I know they were giving me gentle nudges to “Get it Done”. In a later session we will talk about confirmation of that.
Next, I think we will have time to discuss one of my more interesting encounters with other beings. It was a very unexpected and unusual encounter, but it also illustrates how all the preparation I had been doing on myself helped prepare me for this very strange encounter. It should also encourage YOU to do your homework and self-analysis to see if you would be ready to handle a similar encounter with professionalism, courage, and grace.
We always welcome your questions and calls about your experiences.
You can call 646-478-3085 and press 1 to be put in the cue.
