John 14:130 does not mean we get what we want. Or that we ask something and God jumps to do what we say. If that was the case we could ask for all the dead to rise right now and they would. Or for the sun not to shine and it will stop shinning. That is not what the passage is teaching.
To ask in Jesus name means that a believer's prayer should be for the Purpose of God and His Kingdom and not for selfish reasons. The believers prayers should be on the basis of God's merits and not any personal merit or worthiness. A prayer should be in persuit of God's glory alone. (16:26-28)

We know he had to go inorder of the comforter to come, that's why people tarring at the alter do so in vain for the comforter has already come therefore we now operate through Christ who long ago 2000+ went to the father and greater works we do, can we move mountain yes with a digger Crain and man power. Can we move evil spirits and satan yes with Christ all things not some things all things are possible.

And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.
v15 If ye love me, keep my commandments.
Do you keep his commandments one is not to bear false witness against your neighbour.
to keep in with the subject ask what you will?
Ask believing... because we know he go's to the father to confirm what ever it is you ask in his name , it is done, whether it is demons, health, sickness, broken hearted, setting the captives free from demon activity, he said he will do it.
Is he talking to me Yes he said he will be with us even until the end of this world , the twelve are deceased asleep until his return.
---Carla on 9/13/13|
John 14:12 is a great passage in the context. No man can make a new limb grow. No man can save an individual from hell. No man can make a mountain move to another location. No man can come and go to heaven. No man can create something out of nothing. No man can create another earth.
The passage is not speaking about greater power, but in extent. They would become witnesses to the world through the power of the indwelling Spirit and filling of the Holy Spirit (Acts 1:8). And bring many to salvation because of the Comforter dwelling in them. The focus is on spiritual rather than physical miracles. And the reason Jesus then says, "because I go to My Father" because the Comforter would not come until Jesus returned back to the Father.
---Mark_V. on 9/8/13|
Timeless truth, I tell you: 'whoever believes in me, those works which I have done he will also do, and he will do (Greater works than these), because I am going to the presence of my Father.'

We also see in Revelation they did not repent of their witchcraft and sorcery. The anti_christ will come with lying signs and wonders= witchcraft/sorcery, and multitudes will believe and be fooled by this.
We see already the legalization of Pot in states. Sorry, but it is a DRUG, an mind altering DRUG, opening one up to demonic forces.
And look at all those who took LSD claiming they talked to God....funny, but not funny at all.
This country is one big junkie. We can't get through a day without drugs, mind altering, mood altering DRUGS, because we have been programmed to think a PILL fixes it. People can't deal with life, so they drink, and take a pill to escape.
---kathr4453 on 9/7/13|
There are witches in the world today, as they were here back in Bible days. Witchcraft is an occult...Calling up the dead: "necromancy" is another word used in this practice. The phrase occurs only in Deuteronomy 18:11 or one who conjures up spells, or a medium, or a spiritist, or one who calls up the dead. This is exactly what an Old Testament witch did. The Bible gives no indication that we can expect to talk with people who have died [people will do strange things when grieving]. Sorcery: come from a Greek word as our English word "pharmacy", quiet obviously this has to do with drugs, In Revelation, you'll find drugs to bring on trances during which people claim to have Supernatural Knowledge or Power.
---catherine on 9/6/13|
lidia I know Catherine didn't mean it like it says. the post suggested in case God don't work, wicca will. I know she didn't say that like I took it.
---shira4368 on 9/6/13|
Hello,Catherine yes I got to agree with Shira4368, your post seems very contrary,confused you say that the witchcraft, wicca all that wickedness has not prooved frudulent! Well if you go on youtube you will see testimonies ( many) from people whose parents were into the dark practices such as voodoo,santeria ,etc.. there is NO good period. One Pastor he is haitian, told how his grandmother try to kill him as a child the voodoo ( money rituals) originated in Afrika,you must kill a relative to that effect to get rich, but in end you end pay more than bargain.Satan every tactic is frudulent fake and a mockery! Like Shira say even NON- believers afraid of that mess!
Even aethiests, I witness to many of them ....
---Lidia4796 on 9/5/13|
"we are to trust God before we trust witches." that is what I was referring to. we don't trust God before we trust witches. its not an option to "not" trust wicca. most people who are not saved don't trust wicca. I stand by my statement.
---shira4368 on 9/5/13|
Catherine, I read what you said and I believe it is very true indeed. I was wondering why Shira opposed what you said. I believe it was well said. "Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh. For the flesh lust against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh, and these are contrary to one another, so that you do not do the things that you wish. But if you are let by the Spirit you are not under the Law" (Gal. 5:16-18).
Since we are born of the Spirit, we should walk in the Spirit and this way we do not do those things which the flesh wants to do. The flesh wants to avoid God.
---Mark_V. on 9/5/13|
yep Their still just as lost now as they were back in the passed. All the power in Heaven and Earth is given to JESUS. If your a believer in Jesus why would you be afraid of them? The only THE ONLY THE ONLY power in Heaven and Earth comes from the word of God "JESUS" and he is not into witchcraft.
---Bryan on 9/5/13|
Catherine, where do you get your information concerning witchcraft??? did God tell you that too? witchcraft, fire, sorcery and satan is all thru the bible. we are not to play with the fire. so you say we are to follow God first before witchcraft? I would like to know where you got that from.
---shira4368 on 9/4/13|
God condemned divination and magic in every form. Witchcraft is among the things condemned as a work of the flesh in Gal. 5:20. Rarely does the Bible regard such practices as fraudulent. They are condemned, not because they are not supernatural, but because the source is often demonic [Satan has certain powers, and his miracles] and practitioners are trying to circumvent [to take a route that avoids] God to find guidance for the future. In other-words, we are to trust God first before the witches
---catherine on 9/4/13|
cluny, the witch I know has her own website and it is scarey to look at. believe me when I say she flaunted the fact that she is a witch.
---shira4368 on 9/4/13|
Carla, why in the world would you say what you did? What did I do to you to cause you to say that to me?
You curse me Mark_V so are you a witch?"
When did I ever curse you? That is such a horrible accusation to make. Please put down the post where I did. You can believe you see demons and evil spirits all you want, that is ok by me. But I know that a spirit is invisible. No one can see a spirit. No matter how many times they say they have seen one. Only Jesus Christ could see the spirits for He is God who created them.
---Mark_V. on 9/4/13|
You curse me Mark_V so are you a witch? lol
In keeping with the subject... I met a witch at college and didn't know she was one.
One day the teacher did something against her and her curses came out, she called herself a white witch??? witches are all the same to me.
However, eventually we got speaking and I was able to witness to her and found out she was possessed by the spirit she professed to do good by.
I don't know if she ever got free from the spirits she conjured up but they are real and they certainly exist today.
---Carla on 9/4/13|
\\ she did visit her dad and cursed his wife and called her a witch. it was the first time she had ever met her step mother and all she did was curse her\\
Once upon a time, when I was teaching elementary school music, a little boy came up to me complaining, "Johnny called me a piece of poopoo." I asked him, "Well, are you one?" "No, I'm not!" I replied, "The he must be taking about someone else."
Calling her stepmother a witch does not make her a witch. If she is not one, then obviously, someone else was being talked about.
I will say this person sounds terribly disturbed, but there could be a natural explanation.
Glory to Jesus Christ!
---Cluny on 8/27/13|
cluny, yes I will protect my grandson from any evil. so what would you do? just curious. she did visit her dad and cursed his wife and called her a witch. it was the first time she had ever met her step mother and all she did was curse her. when my daughter passed away, she came to the viewing in her witches clothing. yes, I was totally embarrassed by her and so was her dad. until you know the situation here, keep your judgements to yourself. you know nothing.

There is witches today, and some are on CN. Many curse you as witches do. They sleep all night just thinking of what they will brew to give to others. I could name two right now who I believe are witches. They are just a few on line who's duty is to make peoples life miserable. But there are many out there in the world. They can curse a genuine believer all they want and even bring out their father the devil, but they cannot penetrate the armor of God. I know of only one person who is mentioned in the Bible call, the Witch of Endor. She in fact was a medium.

neighbor,at 1st she was nice, NO witches are,NOT NICE!
Greeting on my fon "God bless you" she was hostile,upon hearitin my fon, kept calling sending CURSES!!!
After some about 4 months,finally she stopped. I try witness to her,about JesusChrist, she told me "I would rather kill myself than SERVE HIM!!!
She blames her hatred of God on the catholic church,she went to as a child.She was abused,sadly and that wound fester into HATE for God.
I pray she will have a change of heart and I no longer, friends with her..

There are a lot of people in this world who have gifts from god... There are people who confuse these people with being evil, however some are god loving people who god chose to have these gifts... It is documented that during the Salem witch trials a lot of people were falsely accused... The witch propaganda has out done its self.. Yes there are bad witches so to speak, who practice black magic.. There are also good christian people with gifts and are targeted.. People who have dreams that come true are called witches so to speak.. Just because you do not understand something completely does not give the right to label.

laura: "I don't doubt that many people practice certain forms of witchcraft, but I don't believe that the hocus pocus / voodoo doll witches are out there."
They are as real as the sun rises in the east. Voodoo is as real as Satan himself. Maybe far and few between in civilized countries, but in other countries they are abundant - more openly in the West Indies and Louisiana, USA. Most of the time the victims believe in the curse so much that they bring the curse upon themselves. But sometimes, Satan does have his hands in it.

I don't doubt that many people practice certain forms of witchcraft, but I don't believe that the hocus pocus / voodoo doll witches are out there. I liked how Arthur Miller put it when he was writing the Crucible. He said that he didn't doubt that people were practicing witchcraft, but by no means did he believe that people were putting pins into dolls to stab other townspeople with them.

katavasia: "It seems that the only way fanny would know so much about if witches were real, or the illuminati, or conspiracy, would be if she were involved up to the neck in such nasty things herself."
Another way is if she had a revelation from God about such matters. But knowing frances as I do, she is paranoid by reading all this stuff and believes in all she reads being wise in her own eyes. She also puts herself on a pedestal thinking she knows things most others don't. What she doesn't know is that she is part of the conspiracy because she is spreading rumors.
But knowing such things is not necessary and knowing prophecy is that christians are only to be aware that they are being fulfilled - even today.
---Steveng on 11/25/09|
You are a very judgmental person. Nasty is a very good adjective to describe your attitude. Why are you so rude? Do you hate yourself?
This is the World Wide Christian Network, ChristiaNet.. Do you claim to be a christian? If so, You are surely not following the concept of "lead by example" or the infamous "Do unto others as you would have then do unto you".. You get my point.. If others of us are going to hell for our beliefs, I feel postive we will see you there.

a witch is simply a pagan priestess (high priestess) ...paganism is term used to describe all religions outside of Holy Word of God ...typically worship of anything other than God ...like earth or general "spirituality" ....God HATES all heathen practices these are traditions of men
...some claim they are "good witches" doing good things for themselves and world ...others align with occult practices and satanic rituals
either way a "christian witch" is not a possibility ...if one practices this heathen "religion" then coming into Gods Truth they would understand through Gods Word and repent from this man made religion

Betty, thanks for your support. Katty, the reason I know about the illuminati is because GOD revealed it to me on a specific date in 2004, while I was ironning and watching the CNN news. I can understand why Katty thinks I must be a member, this is because all the information is extremely well covered up in disinformation like Hollywood's Da Vinci Code and the new one Angels and Demons. However many hundreds if not thousands have had their eyes opened and no doubt have had their views censored from websites. But God's Holy Spirit of Truth is waking people up en masse and now the illuminati are in a panic that they won't achieve their 90 per cent cut in population by the date they had in mind.

Be careful of modern fairy tales because they changed the rules. Suddenly practicing magic became okay, even good, and encourage children to look into the occult crafts. The old fairy stories are great. In fact I think fairy stories help you to accept the possibility of God. After all if magic is possible, who can outdo God with his miracles? A training in the fact that sometimes rules of nature can be broken, and people can turn into monsters or princes before your eyes, seem a necessary step in the acceptance of spiritual realms that we cannot see, but do exist.

Two movies that I liked were "Cinderella" and "Wizard Of Oz". While these movies were good to watch as a young kid, I learned that adult life doesn't work like that. These are movies with witchcraft.
Many girls grow up with the idea that they are going to be "Cinderella" and find a Prince Charming who comes to rescue them. Actually, the divorce rate today is higher than when "Cinderella" was created.
"Wizard Of Oz" is clearly where a MAN is trying to play GOD. Not good.

Katavasia speaks total hogwash. Fairy tales can teach us a lot about the world. It was a sad day when television took over that story-telling role, because all you get from television is deception. Fairy tales tell us so many truths about the world. Children learn to be wary of evil, through fairy tales. As for fairy tales being used by Kat to persuade you (psychology trick) that witches are not real, I know first hand that witches are real. I found out before the invention of the internet. But the internet will easily show you that witches exist. Last night I found an on-line invitation to a course on witchcraft near Portsmouth for 2009 costing 400 pounds. You can do it through correspondence if you cannot get there!!!

When I was a child and first saw Wizard of Oz, Glinda was obviously really a fairy, and I knew that fairies were a subset of angels.
I read all sorts of such stories and tall tales as a child, and I knew that they had NOTHING to do with reality and did not affect my faith in Jesus at all.
Even scary vampire movies (at least at the time) taught the power of Christ Crucified over evil.

I think there are people who believe they are witches and believe they hold special power, but they are demonic people being totally driven by evil spirits.
People who have insecurity issues, sometimes need or want an identity, so they call themselves something. A witch is one of them. Wiccan is another.

Continuing on the wicca witch at the prison. After my husband witnessed to her, she complained to the Chaplain. Chaplain spoke to my husband about it and said he should not do it as it was a violation of her religious freedom. Chaplain was a "oneness" minister who had revivals at that prison which only included "oneness" preachers. Shortly after this happened, the state took control of the prison which was privately ran, but buildings were owned by the state. Chaplain was transferred to another facility in another state.

The Bible condemns all forms of the 'craft'. Freemasonry is part of the Satan Worshipping community.
Because we associate witchcraft with herbal medicine, we are misinformed, it is more to do with high level misinformation concerning 'science', pharmaceuticals, food technology, and almost everything else.

We have encountered the "head witch" for the Wicca group as we entered a women's prison on many occasions. She wears a dress with occult figures all over it, covered with a cloak. When my husband witnessed to her about the saving grace of Jesus Christ and said she needed to get born again, she opened her cloak to "flash" her pentagram at him. The program materials are in the chapel closet. She would wait until our service had started to bring a couple of the inmates in to get their supplies. My husband continued his preaching, emphasing hell for false prophets. They stopped disrupting our service after they realized he was going to continue preaching.
