Apart We Are Nothing

Fri, Sep 7, 2012

Posted in: Uncategorized

Dear Readers, Where does our WORTH and success really come from? Let me share a little story. Two donkeys were grazing in the field in Jerusalem, one donkey said, “I don’t understand it, it was just yesterday everyone was throwing their clothes and palms down, singing Hosanna when I was carrying Jesus on my back, but now I am back to being nothing! Those people don’t even acknowledge that it was I that carried Him.” The other donkey said, “That’s how it works brother you are NOTHING without Jesus.”
Sometimes we can forget God the Father has a great plan for our lives. He holds the blueprints, He always has. We were created for His purpose. But, human nature has a tendency,” Let’s just push it through, I will make it WORK.”
The other day I was looking at a beautiful rose bush I noticed the different roses, each one budding at different times. My eye caught a tightly closed bud, then another opened just a bit more, and then I noticed the rose that was opened all the way each petal was so perfect.
As looked at the rose, I realized human nature sometimes tries to force a dream, desire, or relationship to happen. Many trying so hard to force something open, and Jesus is nowhere in the plans. You see I could have reached down and forced open the tightly closed rosebud. But it would have died, and the delicate petals would have fallen to the ground prematurely. God opens each rosebud in His perfect timing. Allow Jesus to be a part of your plans, He will open the door for you in His perfect timing.


Psalms 37:4; Delight yourself in the Lord, and He shall give you the desires of your heart.


Proverbs 3:5-6; “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean NOT on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.”


Don’t be like the donkey, and desire to be noticed, because without Jesus we are nothing.

Even If You Cry No One Hears You

Fri, Aug 31, 2012

Posted in: Uncategorized

Dear Readers,

Two weeks ago a guest came to share his story on my radio program, A Touch From Above with Dr. Luauna, Sundays at 6 -7 a.m. 1210 KPRZ. Please to hear PK’s whole radio interview go to: www.atouchfromabove.org click on the KPRZ logo then click the link in the center. (PK’s Beatings)

PK always volunteers for work around the Prayer Mountain, never asking for anything in return. I though to myself, I would like to know more about this young man who works so diligently. I call him PK to protect him, his wife and four kids. “Tell me how you came to the United States,” I asked him. He began to tell me his story; I knew he had not shared this story for it was still a fresh wound in his heart. Tears swelled up in his eyes as he shared how he was kidnapped and beaten so badly his teeth were knocked out, he was left to die. The same type of men years earlier kidnapped his father and killed him. Later his family found their daddy’s body thrown on an old road.

Now they were coming after PK, now grown with a wife and four kids. PK came from Congo, Africa where in just minutes your whole world can turn upside down. He was locked in a room four different times. His family never knew if he was dead or alive. They tied PK’s wrists together and then tied his ankles together. They took a long stick and ran it between his ankles up through his hands like someone would roast a pig on a stick.

Fourteen hours he hung naked, as seven men beat him with sticks, and for three weeks, they beat him. PK said, “Even if you cry, no one hears you.” But GOD heard PK. A security guard checking to make sure the area was locked down, as he discovered the opened the door, he stood shocked to see this man laying on the floor naked covered with blood from his head to feet. He picked PK up, and took him to the hospital. He asked PK, who can I call for you? He gave his uncle’s name. His uncle came and saw PK in this condition; he knew it was only a matter of time before the same people would find him again, only the next time they would make sure they killed him.

His uncle collecting very little money because they were poor, gave it to PK, and told him RUN for your life. That night broken, hurting and not saying goodbye to his wife and four kids, PK fled from the hospital. He walked for days in the night, no shoes, little food, dirty, filled with blood, and not enough money. He came into…!

You will need to go to my website to hear this whole heart gripping story from PK, how God heard PK’s cries when no one else did. WARNING: Some details are very graphic.

Tears & Brokenness

Fri, Aug 31, 2012

Posted in: Uncategorized

Dear Readers,

I want to share something with you today from my heart. Are you going through something so over whelming? Do you find yourself weeping in the night when no one is around? Trials pressing upon you and you don’t know what to do? I receive many calls for prayer, emails and letters. It seems like many are going through a dark time of trials.

I want to share about a mighty warrior, his name was King David, and the bible says he was a man after God’s own heart. He had many victories under his belt. Many might remember the slaying of the giant Goliath. With boldness, 5 small stones and his slingshot he hurled a stone right into Goliath’s forehead, and down to the ground Goliath went. (Read the victory in I Samuel 17:1-58)

King David had many victories. But I want to share about a time of brokenness in this mighty warrior King David’s life. In Psalm 6:6-7; I am weary with my groaning; all night I make my bed swim; I drench my couch with my tears. My eye wastes away because of grief; it grows old because of all my enemies.

Sometimes life throws us a fast one and it’s unexpected. What do you do when you feel like you are falling apart inside? When it seems like you can barley get up in the morning because of brokenness? My dear readers, TRUST in the LORD, call upon JESUS for His strength. When we are weak, He is strong, when we can’t see because darkness surrounds us. He will be our light, when we don’t have the direction, He will give us wisdom.

King David, as we read all through the Psalm’s we see how GOD became his strength. Psalm 16:1; Preserve me, O God, for in You I put my trust. We must place our trust in the Lord God Almighty who is able to heal, restore, and bring victory to every situation. Call upon the Lord in PRAYER for HIS perfect will, and strength, do not lean on your own strength. When it’s too hard; remember Jesus came to give us life and life more abundantly. God restored King David, and God also restored Job, in the very mist of GREAT pain and loss. In middle of pain, Job cries out! Job 19:25; For I know my Redeemer lives, and He shall stands at last on the earth.

Job 42:12, 17; Now the Lord blessed the latter days of Job more than his beginning; 17; So Job died, old and full of days.

Your Heavenly Father loves you, and His desire is to bring you HIS love & strength, lean on His shoulders, they are bigger and stronger. Today I pray healing, blessing, and restoration for your life. Hold ON dear one, and remember when you are hardest hit, you must not quit.

God bless you. Turn on your radio every Sunday 6-7 a.m. 1210 KPRZ AM.   Join me for church service 10 a.m. A Touch From Above 16145 Hwy 67 Ramona, CA 92065    Visit my website www.atouchfromabove.org To write:   drluauna@atouchfromabove.org

Wake-up Call

Fri, Aug 31, 2012

Posted in: Uncategorized

Dear Dr. Luauna, Thank you for sharing in the last newspaper about woman complaining. I have found myself tearing down my own home. A wake up call greatly needed, I do want to change and do right today. HOW?  Signed Wake-up Call

Dear Wake-up Call,

Thank you for stepping up to the plate as many responded. First place in change is seeing you need a change. To have a successful family life, we must understand. Christianity is the only strong foundation for successful family life. God instituted marriage to provide the fullest life possible for men and women. Please take time out and read these verses. Genesis; 2:18-25, Marriage provides a basis for growth and fulfillment spiritually, mentally and physically. Matthew; 19:4-6, The Word of God gives guidelines for a good marriage partner. They must believe in Christ Jesus, II Corinthians; 6:14. They must agree with beliefs and goals, Amos; 3:3. Must not be quarrelsome or given to strife Proverbs; 21:9. MUST be willing to change and renew your minds, Romans; 12:2. Both must be responsible and disciplined. I Corinthians 4:2.

Marriage must be entered into with right motives. One must go into marriage with the right motive to give our love and share our life with the other person. A relationship based on the following negative motives will be destroyed, romance or emotions, physical looks, sex, loneliness, wanting to get away from parents, or wanting someone to take care of us and our children.

In marriage the two live as one, not separate individuals. You are a team, learn to communicate as one. Ephesians 4:29-32; Proverbs 15: 1,2,21,23; Proverbs 31:26; Matthew 5:37. Basic areas of communication are, sex, money, children, spiritual life, activities, careers or business, friends, and appearance. Love & submission are two keys for a successful marriage, Ephesians 5:21-26. The husband and wife must submit to each other. The husband must be allowed to be the head of the house on final decisions. When both husband and wife are submitted to Christ Jesus, this can be done and the reward will be a GREAT MARRIAGE.

Come to church, Jesus loves you so much. Sunday 10 a.m. A Touch From Above, 16145 Hwy 67, Ramona, CA 92065 and TURN your radio on Sunday at 6-7 a.m. 1210 KPRZ. Log on to my website; www.atouchfromabove.org - You-Tube; Dr. Luauna Stines.  To Write; drluauna@atouchfromabove.org

Unhappy Wife

Fri, Aug 31, 2012

Posted in: Uncategorized

Dear Dr. Luauna,

I have been married 26 years, I am unhappy, I tell my husband how unsatisfied I have been all these years.  We never have had an intimate sex life at all, I don’t like sex.  He is faithful to church, and a great provider, good father but I am unhappy. Signed, Unhappy Wife

Dear Unhappy Wife,

After receiving many, many letters like yours, it took me time and prayer before I considered responding. I write this with love.  First, it is unfair to expect for anyone to fill your happy jar daily.  NO person can make you happy, happiness comes from within.  I have seen many women complain about their husbands.  They cover ungratefulness with comments like; he is a faithful man, faithful provider, and a great father. Would you rather have an unfaithful man, lazy, and a terrible father?

You have told him for years how unsatisfied you are, it’s no wonder your sex like is terrible.  Maybe you should stop complaining and take a good look in the mirror of your life.  The problem is not your husband. You are the one with the problem.  You’ve wasted 26 years complaining. They could have been beautiful years.  Sex is God’s gift and beautiful between a husband and wife, and with time, and gentleness sex only gets better. Trust is built, and love grows stronger with time and understanding.  You need to change your evil thinking. Your own words are destroying your home. Proverbs 31:10-31 You should work on becoming a virtuous woman. Verse 12 is powerful; she does her husband good not evil all the days of her life.

You have been blessed with a great man, rare these days.  No, not perfect!  Love him; he deserves a trophy for staying in his marriage for 26 years with a woman who has been so ungrateful. Remember, there are millions of amazing Godly women who are waiting for a faithful Godly man, and a faithful provider.  Proverbs 14:1; Every wise woman builds her house, but the foolish pulls it down with her hands.

With love I write this today, please don’t be upset.  Change before it’s too late.  You will lose a gift sent from above, your husband.

Join me for Sunday Church Service,  at A Touch From Above - 16145 Hwy 67 Ramona, CA 92065  or  Tune in 1210 AM at 6-7 a.m. Sunday morning on your radio. To Write ;  drluauna@atouchfromabove.org www.atouchfromabove.org

Sinking

Fri, Aug 31, 2012

Posted in: Uncategorized

Dear Dr. Luauna,

I’m having a very hard time, I find myself defending God’s Word? What is going on, many around me are falling apart. I need answers for them, and at the same time I feel weak myself.   Signed, Sinking

Dear Sinking,

HOLD ON.  I’m bringing you a life jacket.  It may seem many are falling apart yet do not join them.  The key to any victorious life is to follow God’s Word. Many desire for God to speak to them, HE already has through the Bible.  He desires to give mankind abundant life. Before salvation we walked in darkness, blinded by sin.  There is NO problem to hard for Jesus and many do not need to fall apart.  His love and Word brings freedom to a troubled heart.

Proverbs 4:20-23; My son, give attention to my Words, Incline your ear to my sayings. Do not let hem depart from your eyes; keep them in the mist of your heart; for they are life to those who find them, and health to all their flesh. Keep your heart with all diligence, for out of it spring the issues of life.

Through Salvation in Christ Jesus our lives are turned around.  Freedom comes within, and Jesus becomes more than just Sunday morning.  He desires to be Lord of our heart, life and minds 24 / 7.  If we stay in His Word, He gives us a strength the world does not understand nor will they ever.  Proverbs 6:23; For the commandment is a lamp, and the law a light; Reproofs of instruction are the way of life.  Proverbs 14:12; There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way of death.

The world tries to get away from God’s Word.  People for generations have always questioned God’s WORD.  Heaven and earth will pass away but GOD’S Word will abide FOREVER.  Nothing will replace the VICTORY Jesus Christ brings to someone who will open their heart.  Proverbs 16:20; He who heeds the Word wisely will find GOOD, and whoever trusts in the LORD, happy is he. This World seeks for riches, yet it is JESUS who is the greatest GIFT and gift giver to all who will come to Him.  Proverbs 22:4; By humility and the fear of the LORD are riches and honor and life. I want to share my short video on Holy Spirit Power part one. Please take time out and watch the video on my website.  You will learn your strength comes from the Holy Spirit’s Power. This was a Promise from Jesus to you and I.

Through God’s Word our life is changed, and power comes from Him. Through any situation God’s WORD is our strength.  Don’t sink; hold on to the WORD of GOD.  Psalm 119:107; I am afflicted very much; revive me, O LORD, according to your word.  Psalm 119:154; Plead my cause and redeem me; Revive me according to Your word. Come hear the Word of God, and grow in His strength.  Join me for Church service Sunday 10 a.m. A Touch From Above 16145 Hwy 67, Ramona, CA 92065. Tune in Sunday 7 a.m. 1210 KPRZ.

Surrounded

Tue, Jun 5, 2012

Posted in: Uncategorized

Dear Dr. Luauna,

How does one make it in a world that seems so far away from God? I find someone who challenges me about Jesus almost everyday, how I raise my children by Bible standards and because we go to church every week. I must admit sometimes it seems hard to keep standing in faith with so much darkness around you. Signed, Surrounded

Dear Surrounded,

It sounds to me like you are doing a great job; do not become weary in well doing. What you are experiencing today has been the trial of many of our great Bible Hero’s of yesterday. We live in a time when prayer has been removed from schools, and not too long ago a 2.6 – ton granite monument was removed because carved on it was The Ten Commandments. It is a sad day in our country when the moral foundation of our law and the acknowledgment of God have to be hidden from public view.

Is this battle NEW? No, throughout Bible history the holiness and the righteousness of God have always been challenged. As far back as the beginning of time in the garden when a voice echoed to Eve in Genesis 3:1 Has God indeed said? We must understand this war is not done nor seen in the natural. Our war as Christians is not in the flesh, it is done on our knees in prayer. Through PRAYER God heard Abraham and spared Lot, God heard the children of Israel and sent them a deliver Moses. Through prayer Hanna cried out and received a child from her barren womb, and God closed the mouths of hungry lions. Through Prayer God healed the sick, and made the blind to see. He opened doors no man could open, parted the sea so the children of Israel could cross on dry land.

Trusting God in these days demands a greater prayer life, because no matter what comes against you, prayer will bring comfort to your heart and strength from above. Through prayer God gave a widow an oil business when the creditors were coming to get her two sons to be slaves when she could not pay her bills.

Psalm 39:12 “Hear my prayer, O Lord, and give ear to my cry; do not be silent at my tears; for I am a stranger with You, a sojourner, as all my fathers were. Psalm 43:1-5 Vindicate me, O God, and plead my cause against an ungodly nation; Oh, deliver me from the deceitful and unjust man! For You are the God of my strength; why do You cast me off? Why do I go mourning because of the oppression of the enemy? Oh, send out Your light and Your truth! Let them lead me; let them bring me to Your holy hill and to Your tabernacle. Then I will go to the altar of God, To God my exceeding joy; and on the harp I will praise You, O God, my God. Why are you cast down, O my soul? And why are you disquieted within me? Hope in God; for I shall yet praise Him, the help of my countenance and my God.

Do not give in, in your weakness you are made strong through prayer! Jesus is our strength, and PRAYER is our key and our avenue to VICTORY daily. Matthew 6:9-13 The Lord’s Prayer is a good place to start your daily prayer.

Why Preach?

Tue, Apr 10, 2012

Posted in: Uncategorized

Dear Dr. Luauna,
Why do you preach so much about Jesus? Does it really matter? What good does it do anyway, we live in America? Signed, Why Preach?

Dear Why Preach,

Missionaries travel throughout the world, reaching people in need of Jesus, while millions of people in America go throughout their day never thinking about Christ. Many never take notice of the condition of United States. I am a Missionary to America! No, I am not a Mormon; I am a Born Again Christian.

I have traveled throughout the world and had the privilege of leading thousands of people to Jesus in other countries. Yet right here in the USA, many people have hardened their heart towards the gospel message of Jesus Christ or they have never heard the gospel message of salvation through the Cross of Calvary. The media also seems bent on mocking Jesus in many mediums such as TV, radio, and internet.

Many have fallen away and have left a bad example of Christianity. I have an urgency to reach into every city, town and all of California, with our mission: Jesus is coming are you ready?

Abortion is out of control in America, with over 4 million done alone in our nation within one year, and that is an old report from 1996. Why do women have abortions? One percent of all abortions occur because of rape or incest; 6% of abortions occur because of potential health problems regarding either the mother or child, and 93% of all abortions occur for social reasons (i.e. the child is unwanted or inconvenient). Sexual intercourse amongst teens is out of control, and the rise of homosexuality is promoted as a normal lifestyle!

Gang violence and teen suicide are continually increasing. Alcohol among families destroys family members. While drug use; crystal meth, heroin, and cocaine is escalating. What is the answer? Jesus! Our Hope of freedom comes from the Cross of JESUS Christ. The power which raised Jesus from the dead still has power to deliver the lost today. America needs, A TOUCH FROM THE MASTER, His name is Jesus, and I am a Missionary to America.

Romans 10:14-15a, “How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they preach unless they are sent?…”

Jonah 1:1-2, “Now the word of the Lord came to Jonah the son of Amittai, saying, ‘Arise, go to Nineveh, that great city, and cry out against it; for their wickedness has come up before Me.”

In a World that is hurting, Jesus is the answer! God bless you, I am willing to GO FORTH, and preach, do keep me prayer.

Movie Buff

Sat, Mar 3, 2012

Posted in: Uncategorized

I am a movie buff and a Christian. I have friends at church who seem legalistic about watching movies; we are all adults, what is the big deal anyway? Signed, Movie Buff

Dear Movie Buff,

As I read your question, I thought of today’s movies and the Hollywood machine which is producing all of them. As I measure the values of Hollywood against Biblical principles the answer seems obvious. Yes, it is a big deal for Christians to compromise in the movies they watch. Movies infiltrate our society at every level, shaping and molding our culture, including our children to compromise with sin.

The mind is the battlefield, as believers we must guard our minds; Matthew 15:19, “For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies. These are the things which defile a man,…” These are common themes made into movies. Why do Christians want to finance Hollywood’s vision to overthrow innocence for our children, to support sexual immorality and things which are in direct contrast to the Word of God?

Christians can insist that watching the movie does not affect them that, they are free to watch them as adults and anyone who does not agree is legalistic. Those who take a righteous stand are not legalistic. The Bible is filled with believers who were challenged by their culture, their fleshly desires and faced with decisions to follow Jesus in everyday life. Today, we are challenged on all sides, including with Hollywood movies. I cannot avoid the truth in scripture which declares, there are consequences for believers who disobey God’s commandments.

Believers in Christ should desire to sacrifice anything which is part of the world to live right and please the Lord in all things. Please read the book of Psalms 1, the Bible is proof that Christians must be careful with what they set before their eyes. We are given the choices every moment of every day to choose righteousness, the abundant life of Christ. I hope you will make the right choice, I invite you join us for any of our church services.
