Making the Impossible – POSSIBLE!

All things are possible to them that believe!

possible God

Past couple of days, I have been sharing deep, introspective truth, but sometimes, we need to get back to the basics of life. God is All Mighty! Jesus is Lord! He will use His power to help us when we believe!

Facing some impossibilities in your life?

Luke 18:27 And he said, The things which are impossible with men are possible with God.

Mark 9:23 Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.

possible Jesus

Yes, faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God. Love is the currency of the kingdom by which everything works. Galatians 5:6 but faith which worketh by love.

So you must receive the love of God to recognize your worth. John 1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:

You are a child of the King, powerful in Him, simply and only because you have received Him. There is no way you can love your neighbour as yourself, unless you receive the love of God for yourself. If you don’t know God loves you deeply and intimately, so that your self-worth is established in Him, then your neighbour is in trouble.

possible love

We are talking about impossibilities though, and Jesus said that all things are possible to them that believe. Believe what you may ask?

Believe that you are precious. Royalty! A child of the King! You are adopted into the most powerful family this earth has ever seen, the family of the most High God!

You may be in the crosshairs of hell, but heavens arsenal responds with howitzers in the hands of angels. He has charged His angels to watch over you, the 91st Psalm declares. Heaven has not lost track of you or me, Jesus will never leave you nor forsake you, and the host of heaven walks with you. You have guardian angels, and because you serve the Lord of glory, king of heaven, Psalms 34:7 The angel of the LORD encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them.

Need encouragement, the God of angel armies, is standing by your side! http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0CCEQyCkwAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DqOkImV2cJDg&ei=ZbVyVNHcMMX6igKwh4Eo&usg=AFQjCNGtFB0mgcPukp9TfzvaEzancJF32Q&sig2=6XVRWmHoXULLpaoIwAvQvA&bvm=bv.80185997,d.cGE

Though you may feel alone and helpless, Jesus will never leave you nor forsake you, and the specific angels assigned to you, are delivering you from your current circumstance and trial, even though you might not bee able to see, touch, hear, or feel them right now. They are with you, and they fight for you!

angell armies

You are loved, and because you are loved, your faith will work.

Faith, that is what you believe, moves mountains. Your mouth is what unleashes heavens arsenal against the onslaught of hell against you. That silent belief deep within you has the strength to carry you to untold heights if you would only speak it.

Tears alone do not move God
Desperation does not intimidate God
Manipulation does not control God
Education does not influence God
Faith is the only voice God respects.
Faith is the only method that impresses God to activate miracles.

Faith has a voice. If you believe something, you are going to say something. Let the redeemed of the Lord, say so!

faith voice

It’s a voice activated system. Your voice, is your address in the realm of the Spirit, and heaven is listening intently, for you child of God, to cry unto Him, to declare into this war torn, sin-sick earth, His promises, His decrees, and His glory, that again, His answer of power brings glory honor and praise, as your testimony, creates eternal witness in this generation of His covenant, His faithfulness, His mercy, greatness and love!

Do you need direction? The word of God declares that it belongs to you. If you are a child of God, you know what to do. Why?

1 John 2:20 But ye have an unction from the Holy One, and ye know all things.

John 16:13 New King James Version (NKJV)
13 However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come.

After you are heading the right direction, do you need to know how to proceed?

James 1:5 If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.

wisdom

Jeremiah 33:3 Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.

Faith comes by hearing the voice of God.

He will speak to you!

John 10:27 New King James Version (NKJV)

27 My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.

Listen voice

Then after you hear, I’m going to be like Mary.

John 2:5
His mother said to the servants, “Whatever He says to you, do it.”

James 2:26 For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.

If you believe something, you are going to do something.

Faith can be seen.

Matthew 9:2 And, behold, they brought to him a man sick of the palsy, lying on a bed: and Jesus seeing their faith said unto the sick of the palsy; Son, be of good cheer; thy sins be forgiven thee.

Faith can be seen!

Matthew 16:8 Which when Jesus perceived, he said unto them, O ye of little faith, why reason ye among yourselves, because ye have brought no bread?

Luke 5:20 And when he saw their faith, he said unto him, Man, thy sins are forgiven thee.

Not only can faith be seen, but when you exercise it, it will produce sight!

Mark 10:52 And Jesus said unto him, Go thy way; thy faith hath made thee whole. And immediately he received his sight, and followed Jesus in the way.

Now some people do ‘acts of faith’ to impress other people, but this is a waste of time.

Jeremiah 17:5 Thus saith the LORD; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the LORD.

True faith cares not what people think about what they do, but makes headlines in heaven because God sees.

possible not easy

Job 28:10 He cutteth out rivers among the rocks; and his eye seeth every precious thing.
11 He bindeth the floods from overflowing; and the thing that is hid bringeth he forth to light.
12 But where shall wisdom be found? and where is the place of understanding?
13 Man knoweth not the price thereof; neither is it found in the land of the living.

There are times in life, when there is no earthly solution to our problems. All of our work, study, knowledge, and friendships, fail, and we stand, face to face with only ourselves looking back in the mirror, alone.

Yet, this is a wonderful place to be in! Why?

Look up, for this verse is clear,
12 But where shall wisdom be found? and where is the place of understanding?
13 Man knoweth not the price thereof; neither is it found in the land of the living.

What we need is not found in the land of the living! It comes from heaven, from the throne of God, and in His light, we see light!

At the end of our particular stand of faith, is One who stands forever faithful, enthroned in the heavens, and though we may appear to have failed in the eyes of all men, and even our own eyes, it is not over yet! There is one move voice to be heard in this situation, the voice of Jesus, and now matter what you are going through, He is well able to deliver you, today!

What is more precious to God but to be believed?

His only pleasure is to be trusted.
His greatest pain is to be doubted.

God continually arranges scenarios that require your confidence in Him.

You’ve looked to books, to men, to the right and to the left for deliverance from your dilemma. Look up, for your redemption draweth nigh.

Yet can God see what I’m going through? I thought He was a Spirit.

Psalms 94:9 He that planted the ear, shall he not hear? he that formed the eye, shall he not see?

God sees all, knows all and would guide you if you seek him. Psalms 32:8 I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye.

2 Chronicles 16:9 For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to shew himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him. Herein thou hast done foolishly: therefore from henceforth thou shalt have wars.

God sees alright, and He is looking around the world constantly, for one thing. Faith. A heart full of faith will move Him every time. In fact He will pass over millions, even billions of people to get to one person who believes.

Mark 11:22 And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God.
23 For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.
24 Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.

1 John 3:21 Beloved, if our heart condemn us not, then have we confidence toward God.

1 John 5:14 And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us: 15 And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.

The question is do we have confidence towards God?

Psalms 66:18 If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me:

Are you seeking Him? Is He first place? Repent! Believe! Speak to your mountain! Obey! Move towards your dream, and God will move your dream towards you.

Faith releases a flow of miracles into your life. Fear releases heartache and misery into your life.

Step back into the miraculous today.

Let’s pray!

Father, I choose to believe you today. You said that you would guide me, so I trust you to show me what I need to do. I ask you for wisdom, and according to your Word, I receive it right now. I ask you for favor, and I believe you are granting it to me, right now. I ask you for provision, and I believe I receive it, right now. I ask you for forgiveness and mercy, and I thank you for forgiving me, and cleansing me, and revealing again to me your love. Fill me Lord, heal me Lord, grant me boldness and strength to serve you today, in your name I pray Lord Jesus,

Amen!

Days of Heaven upon the Earth?

Days of Heaven upon the earth!

Days northern lights

One night, in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, we attended an all-night prayer meeting at what was then called ‘The Downtown Church’ (it’s now called City Church), and as we left the building, in the pre-dawn darkness of Canadian winter, the sky exploded in living colors, in what we now call ‘The Northern Lights’.

I heard pastor Rod Parsley say, in a revival service a term that is the topic of this teaching:

“Seed the heavens, and establish the earth”.

David Ingles, a well known Christian song writer, has written a song, on this reality, and taught extensively about days of heaven upon the earth. (http://www.davidinglesmusic.org/~shop/02—these-are-days-of-heaven-on-the-earth/166353/)

Let’s look at this concept, as we continue in our life of faith (Fantastic Adventures in Trusting Him).

Test the Spirits!

1 John 4:1 ¶ Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.
2 Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God:
3 And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.
4 ¶ Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.

The problem with true prophetic ministry has always been deception. It’s the only weapon satan has left, for he has been stripped of all power and authority when Jesus rose from the dead.

2Co 11:14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.

test angel of llight

Ga 1:8 But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.

Satan may be a liar and the father of all lies, and deception may be his only weapon, but he uses this weapon very well in the earth, even today. Just as there are true prophetic ministry and spiritual oversight, there are demonic spirits that emulate the gifts of God, with the sole intent, of causing ministries and the people of God to go astray.

De 18:10 There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch,
11 Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer.
12 For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD: and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee.
13 Thou shalt be perfect with the LORD thy God.

Jesus warned us about false prophets:Matthew 7:15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. (Why? https://chrisaomministries.wordpress.com/2015/10/03/ravenous-wolves/)

test prophet
Matthew 24:24
For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect

2 Corinthians 11:13
For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.
14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. 15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also are transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.

John 10:12
But he that is a hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and fleeth: and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep.

2 Peter 2 [Full Chapter]
But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them and bring upon themselves swift destruction. And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.

From the time in the garden, satan knew that if he could just get the people of God to disobey God, he would have them in his power, for how well he knows the holiness and raw power of God!
demons trembleJas 2:19 Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.

He knows he has no power against God, and that we do have power with God, and authority from Him. He hasn’t changed, he still whispers, ‘has God really said?’, to attempt to get us off of the Word of God, to deviate from the authority of the Scriptures. In a large sense, he has been successful.

Mohammad went up into a cave to seek God. Supposedly, an angel claiming to Gabriel appeared to him, and put him in a spiritual stupor, after clasping him, and imparting to him, ‘the oracle of God’ which Mohammad then had written, and which is now known as the Quran. Islam now claims to have a billion followers in the earth, far from Jesus, living a life of fear, violence, hatred and strife, all because one man of God, listened to another voice, heard another spirit, that pretended to be of God.

Remember, demons lie, then deceive. Jesus said ‘by their fruits, you will know them.’ And the fruit of Islam has been a blood bath for centuries.

So it is with Mormonism. A strong leader named Joseph Smith, attempting to honestly lead his people into the promised land, had a vision where Jesus and Mary supposedly appeared to him and gave him ‘a complete revelation of the Bible’, and the book of Mormon was written. Though Mormonism is not as bloody as Islam, Walter Martin in his book, ‘The Kingdom of the cults’ cites 84 key differences between Mormon doctrine and the Bible, and so you end up with a moral people, devoid of spiritual power, anointing, and living truth brought alive from the presence and power of Holy Spirit.

2Ti 3:5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

test realize

Since these two deceptions were the crux of the 2012 US Presidential election, I mentioned them as examples, but I greatly encourage you to get a copy of Walter martin’s book, Kingdom of the Cults, (http://www.amazon.com/Kingdom-Cults-Walter-Martin/dp/0764228218/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1415565001&sr=1-1&keywords=walter+martin+kingdom+of+the+cults)  to protect yourself from error.

Dig deep into the Word of God to discover what you believe, based upon the Bible:

John 8:31-32 (AKJV)
31 Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; 32 and ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
Jer 14: 14 Then the LORD said unto me, The prophets prophesy lies in my name: I sent them not, neither have I commanded them, neither spake unto them: they prophesy unto you a false vision and divination, and a thing of nought, and the deceit of their heart.
15 Therefore thus saith the LORD concerning the prophets that prophesy in my name, and I sent them not, yet they say, Sword and famine shall not be in this
land; By sword and famine shall those prophets be consumed.
16 And the people to whom they prophesy shall be cast out in the streets of Jerusalem because of the famine and the sword; and they shall have none to bury
them, them, their wives, nor their sons, nor their daughters: for I will pour their wickedness upon them.

In this verse, we have prophets that should have been speaking by the Holy Spirit, the revelations of God, yet they were hearing and seeing by another spirit, a spirit of divination, and they became deceived in their hearts.

This sends chills down my spine, in the fear of the Lord, for I seek holiness, the fear of the Lord, and truth above every other thing. None of us are immune to error, and as we studied church history in the lives of some of the most powerful servants of God, we see some that went off. William Branham denying the Trinity, and perhaps moving in a mix of true prophetic, and divination or familiar spirits,

John Alexander Dowie, claiming to be ‘a reincarnation of John the Baptist’ in his latter years, and on it goes. What about many today who ‘prophesy’ money out of people’s pockets, in the name of the Lord? Surely there are true prophets that move in the financial realm, but how many times have we heard an offering taken up, that just doesn’t sit right in our heart?

Act 16:16 ¶ And it came to pass, as we went to prayer, a certain damsel possessed with a spirit of divination met us, which brought her masters much gain by soothsaying:
17 The same followed Paul and us, and cried, saying, These men are the servants of the most high God, which shew unto us the way of salvation.
18 And this did she many days. But Paul, being grieved, turned and said to the spirit, I command thee in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her. And he came out the same hour.
divination

We must listen to our hearts and test the spirits. If something doesn’t seem right, it probably isn’t right.

1 John 4:1 ¶ Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.
2 Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God:
3 And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should
come; and even now already is it in the world.
4 ¶ Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.

Just finished a great little book, given to us by Billye Brim, called The Authority of the Believer, by John A. Macmillan. It is a great book on spiritual authority and warfare, but the last couple of chapters talk about many cases of demonic interaction with people. One chapter talks about the rise of modern day spiritualism stems from actual communication with spirits claiming to be the souls of loved ones who had died some years previously. As these spirits communicated through tapping, and other methods, the group of adherents to this mess, went from two teenaged girls, to over 10 million.

Just because an experience is supernatural, does not mean it is of God!

Remember Moses, when he appeared before Pharaoh and God turned his staff into a serpent? The Egyptian priests did the same thing by demonic power.

Please stay grounded in truth, as you move in the revelatory gifts of the Holy Spirit. I have to believe that as I stay rooted and grounded in the Word of God, that God Himself will send both laborers and teaching materials about demonic errors to keep us clean spiritually.

Like any Bible doctrine, there is a ditch on either side.

With this teaching, the two ditches are demonic deception resulting in supernatural revelation coming from demons instead of God, and then on the other side, strict legalism, resulting in no tolerance, or allowance of prophetic ministry and guidance to the church of the living God.

There is a straight and narrow way through these perils!

test smoke

The cure for misuse of a gift is not “no use”, rather, “correct use”.

1Co 14:1 Follow after charity, and desire spiritual gifts, but rather that ye may prophesy.

1Co 14:39 Wherefore, brethren, covet to prophesy, and forbid not to speak with tongues.

These are the last days, the season when the anti-Christ spirit will manifest in a man. He is described here in

2 Thess 2:This man will come to do the work of Satan with counterfeit power and signs and miracles. 10 He will use every kind of evil deception to fool those on their way to destruction, because they refuse to love and accept the truth that would save them.

truth love

If we determine to love truth and embrace it, we will be protected from sinister ministers, and snakes in pulpits, wolves in sheep’s clothing.

Let’s pray:

‘Father, I take my place in your kingdom, determined to walk in truth. Open my eyes to the true state of the ministries you have called me to, and give me wisdom on how best to pray, preach, feed, and lead your people, to best grow them up in you, and your perfect plan for us, and deliver me and protect me any others from all false prophetic, dreams, visions, or manifestation. Keep me in truth, at all cost, and prevent me from going astray. In any case that I have heard or seen things in the spirit, that are not from you, but are demonic deception, please show me, cleanse me, and keep me pure and holy in your sight, and submitted to your Word, in your name I pray Lord Jesus, Amen’

Prayer as Incense….

Prayer as Incense....

 

 Incense as a prayer….

One day in our yearly Bible reading, as I began to meditate upon my journey this year, as I have been studying diligently, the plight of the North American Indian tribes. I am convinced that this is the number one agenda upon the heart of Father God, our Creator, that will unlock the move of the Holy Spirit we all seek, in this land we call the United States of America.

Psalm 141
King James Version (KJV)
141 Lord, I cry unto thee: make haste unto me; give ear unto my voice, when I cry unto thee.
2 Let my prayer be set forth before thee as incense; and the lifting up of my hands as the evening sacrifice.

Prayer as Incense....
I am called to somehow bring the love of Jesus, and the truth of God’s covenant to these precious people, after the traditional church, has radically failed, in many cases to do so.
The general history of Christian missions to the Indian tribes, is, at best horrendous, although I am sure that there have been myriads of good hearted Christians (like the Christian missionaries that walked the ‘trail of tears’ with the Cherokee and Choctaw), who honestly did not have the understanding we now have of the Word of God, and a better perspective, of the visitations of the Creator, the Great Spirit, who we call the Holy Spirit, among the Indian tribes, over the centuries.

prayer incense of heart

It has been said of a true missionary, that their true job, is not to go make disciples of their version or interpretation of how they believe that people should serve God, rather, to go, and learn the language, customs, traditions, and culture of the people they are sent to, “TO DISCOVER THE WAYS THAT GOD HAS ALREADY VISITED THAT PEOPLE!’

smudging

Notice I have deliberately capitalized this thought, for the Scripture states that:

1 Peter 4:17
For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?

Where the church has failed the indigenous peoples of North America, there has been judgment, and lost blessing, I am convinced, upon this nation.

Now, is the time to make wrongs right, and together with the red man, heal the land.

This is the amazing truth of American history: Not that the US has always done right, but in this land of the free and the brave, where we fight for freedom, liberty, and justice for all, that where America has done wrong, historically, they have always endeavoured to make wrongs, right. We have seen this in the cival war, to end slavery, and later under the leadership of Martin Luther King Jr in the cival rights movement, that where injustice or institutionalized evil is in place, there have always been champions of justice, to bring course correction to America, to keep her from the shipwrecks of God’s judgement.

The three battlegrounds to be championed in this generation are, in order of importance: The plight of the US Indian, Racisim again, and the elimination of abortion. May God raise up voices and champions of truth in each of these battlegrounds!

As a spiritual leader, with anointing and power with God (yet no earthly title or recognition as of yet), I actually believe that God has been visiting the Indian tribes, long before the white man came to this land.

crazy horse1
Crazy Horse (Lakota: Thašųka Witko, literally “His-Horse-is-Crazy”)

“Crazy Horse’s vision foretold the darkness that descended on his people. He saw the coming of automobiles and airplanes and the tragic world wars of the modern era. He saw his people gradually awakening after the last war and beginning to dance again under the Sacred Tree. Then amazingly he saw that dancing along with his people were representatives of all races who had become brothers. Thus he foresaw that the world would be made whole again, not just by his own nation but by all peoples working together.” – Bette Stockbauer
http://bci.org/prophecy-fulfilled/ancient.htm

The Teton Sioux Chief Crazy Horse had a final vision in which “He saw his people being driven into spiritual darkness and poverty while the white people prospered in a material way all around them. But even in the darkest times, he saw that the eyes of a few of his people kept the light of dawn and the wisdom of the earth, which they passed on to some of their grandchildren. He saw the coming of automobiles and airplanes, and twice he saw the great darkness and heard the screams and explosions when millions of people died in two great world wars.

“But he saw, after the second great war passed, a time come when his people began to awaken, not all at once, but a few here and there, and then more and more, and he saw that they were dancing in a beautiful light of the Spirit World under the Sacred Tree even while still on Earth. Then he was amazed to see that dancing under the tree were representatives of all races who had become brothers, and he realized that the world would be made new again and in peace and harmony not just by his people, but by members of all races of mankind.” – Vinson Brown, Voices of Earth and Sky; 1974, Harrisburg, PA
http://www.rexresearch.com/usa/usaproph.htm#us10

Crazy Horse had a vision he shared with sitting bull during a pipe ceremony just days before he was murdered. He said, “Upon suffering beyond suffering, the red nation shall rise again and it shall be a blessing for the sick world. A world filed with broken promises, selfishness and separations. A world longing for light again. I see a time of seven generations, when all the colors of mankind will gather under the sacred tree of life and the whole earth will become one circle again. In that day, those among the Lakota who will carry knowledge and understanding of unity among all living things, and the young white ones will come, to those of my people to ask for wisdom. I salute the light within their eyes where the whole universe dwells, for when you are at the center within you and I am at the at place within me, we are as one.” – Crazy Horse from James Medicine Tree

This prophecy, uttered by chief Crazy Horse, in the presence of chief Sitting Bull (to my knowledge, the last free Indian chiefs), is widely accepted as being from God, by many, many Indian tribes and elders.
I too, believe it to be true.
It is now the time of the seventh generation, and I see myself as one of ‘the young white ones, with the light within their eyes where the whole universe dwells,’. That light in me, is Jesus, Christ in me, the hope of my glory!

Prayer as Incense:

 

prayer as incense
Today, as I think of the Indian tradition called ‘smudging’, where cedar, or sage, tobacco, or sweet grass is burned as incense, or an offering to our Creator, I see a great similarity, between First Nations worship, and the worship prescribed by God to the Hebrews, in the temple, before the ark.

High_Priest_Offering_Incense_on_the_Altar

 

Here are some Scriptures, where God ordained the burning to incense to be offered up with prayer and worship:
Exodus 30:1
And thou shalt make an altar to burn incense upon: of shittim wood shalt thou make it.
Exodus 30:7
And Aaron shall burn thereon sweet incense every morning: when he dresseth the lamps, he shall burn incense upon it.
Exodus 30:8
And when Aaron lighteth the lamps at even, he shall burn incense upon it, a perpetual incense before the Lord throughout your generations.

Malachi 1:11
For from the rising of the sun even unto the going down of the same my name shall be great among the Gentiles; and in every place incense shall be offered unto my name, and a pure offering: for my name shall be great among the heathen, saith the Lord of hosts.
Luke 1:9
According to the custom of the priest’s office, his lot was to burn incense when he went into the temple of the Lord.
Luke 1:10
And the whole multitude of the people were praying without at the time of incense.
Luke 1:11
And there appeared unto him an angel of the Lord standing on the right side of the altar of incense.

Here we see prayer in heaven being received by our Creator, offered before Him by angels, with incense!

Menorah01
Revelation 8:3
And another angel came and stood at the altar, having a golden censer; and there was given unto him much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all saints upon the golden altar which was before the throne.
Revelation 8:4
And the smoke of the incense, which came with the prayers of the saints, ascended up before God out of the angel’s hand.,

These verses speak of incense, being offered with prayer, as a sweet aroma before the throne of God.

Yet, traditional white missionaries, in many cases, at best, misinterpreted this traditional tribal

practice, seeing it as pagan, demonic, or at best merely traditional. Read this article from a Catholic brother, that I agree with: http://www.peace.mb.ca/00.Native/nlrnz06-sweetgrass.php
I quote:
“Holy Smoke –
Fragrant smoke is one of these sacramentals. It has been used by peoples all over the world for thousands of years. Sweet grass, sage, cedar, etc. are forms of incense found in many First Nations cultures. It is used as a way of honouring the Creator, as a sign of prayer rising to God, and of the sweetness of prayer. It is a sign of humility (the humbleness of plants) and purity (the purifying effect of fire). Also for Christians, smoke is a reminder of the shining cloud that veils the glory of God.”

Smoke Signals:

prayer as smoke

Yet, I believe the burning of sweetgrass, cedar, sage, as part of First Nations worship to be Biblical, spiritual, and one of the forms of worship God loves, as:
Revelation 5:9
And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation;
Revelation 7:9
After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands;
Again, as I have said before. Jesus did not come to destroy language, culture, and sacred traditions of elders and tribes, rather to redeem it, purify it, and bring it back to our Father, Creator, the Great One from whom all life flows.
May we learn to love one another, in purity of heart, and true holiness, seeking to honestly understand, in humility, the visitations of God in other cultures!
Let’s pray:
‘Father, again, I lift up a cry, for the North American Indian! Father, again, visit them, heal them, deliver and redeem them, and please, visit us, heal us, forgive and deliver us, redeem us, and open our eyes, to see You, in Your movements, traditions, and the worship of other people groups than ourselves. May we be instruments of reconciliation, peace, justice, and healing, revealing Your love, power, and redemption. Father, open our eyes to the ways we must change, hear, and walk, in order to heal this great land, we call, the United States of America. We ask, knowing we are heard, for we come only through the precious shed blood of Yeshua, Jesus, God the Son, risen from the dead, they we too might live in Him, Amen’

Jesus is Lord!

Jesus is Lord!

Behold! The Whole World Has Gone After Him!

John 12: 19 The Pharisees therefore said among themselves, Perceive ye how ye prevail nothing? behold, the world is gone after him.

Matt 28:18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.

19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:

20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

John 2-5
Indeed, the whole world has gone after Jesus!

Whether they accept Him, and serve Him willingly, or gnash their teeth in frustration, as their plans continually fail, as they run up against His kingdom operating in the earth, the Church is victoriously moving forward in every nation of the earth, and there is absolutely nothing that people or devils can do to stop it!

Mt 16:18 And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.

Some think that His kingdom with come, only when Jesus Himself comes to the earth, and physically takes up residence upon His throne in Jerusalem, city of the great king, but His kingdom has come now, and is very active for those with eyes to see, and ears to hear.
I like the way John Bevere defined the kingdom of God as the ‘supreme rule and reign of God in the universe.’

Mt 16:18 And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.

Authority

How can Jesus make this statement?

Simple, when He rose from the dead, and His blood was literally applied to the mercy seat before the throne of God in heaven, it was decreed:
Matt 28:18 All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.

All power, authority, belong to Jesus, now!

Our job, is to hear, and obey Him.

The angels have figured it out!

angel word

Psalm 103:19-22

God has set his throne in heaven; he rules over us all. He’s the King! So bless God, you angels, ready and able to fly at his bidding, quick to hear and do what he says. Bless God, all you armies of angels, alert to respond to whatever he wills. Bless God, all creatures, wherever you are— everything and everyone made by God. And you, O my soul, bless God!

Now we need to be like the servants at the wedding, when Mary spoke: Whatever He says to you, do it.” (John 2:5)

John 2-5

When we do, His power is displayed in the earth, and through our prayers, and the exercising of that authority, the nations are shepherded by the Holy Spirit, as He governs them through the very decrees we utter in prayer over the earth.

And so we have become joint-heirs with Jesus….occupying until He comes again, making His enemies His footstool as we march victoriously forward in Him!

Ro 8:17 And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.

Is it easy? NO!

This verse makes it plain, we will suffer with Him.

Suffer? Not a popular word in this micro-wave, instant, version of Christianity…

Yet, His kingdom is love. Faith works by love. If we want power with God, we must love people, and sometimes people can be nasty.

Walking in purity, power, and purpose will run you and I cross wise of the worldly and religious agenda’s of people, and when this happens, people will minimally shun us, though often they treat us a whole lot worse than that, as we read of the atrocities perpetrated against Christians in China, Syria, Egypt, Pakistan, and India, to name a few nations in the news currently.

Some say, ‘You Christians hide out in your churches, and have do little to help with the real issues of the day’

Yes, we do go to church, for it is the vehicle God has prescribed to bless us, our communities, where training, equipping, encouragement, and empowerment occurs, but seen from heaven’s perspective, going to church is an issue of obedience:

Heb 10:24 And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works:
25 Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.

2Ch 5:13 It came even to pass, as the trumpeters and singers were as one, to make one sound to be heard in praising and thanking the LORD; and when they lifted up their voice with the trumpets and cymbals and instruments of musick, and praised the LORD, saying, For he is good; for his mercy endureth for ever: that then the house was filled with a cloud, even the house of the LORD;

Ps 92:13 Those that be planted in the house of the LORD shall flourish in the courts of our God.

We go to church, to meet with the King! He is alive! He rules! He reigns! He speaks! He provides! He is Love!

king
Some forsake this blessing, thinking that they do not need this vehicle in their lives.
Foolishness! Pride and self-will, thinking that any of us know better than God Almighty!

Some neglect this grace and blessing, thinking that they can run their own lives, but know this: the prayers prayed by the church, and the Word of God decreed over your community, are being heard, answered, and backed up by heaven. If you are on the right side of that Word, you will find grace, mercy, and blessing.

I like this quote:

Yet membership in a confessing body is fundamental to the faithful Christian life. Failure to do so defies the explicit warning not to forsake “our assembling together.” His understanding of this prompted Martin Luther to say, “Apart from the church, salvation is impossible.” Not that the church provides salvation; God does. But because the “saved” one can’t fulfill what it means to be a Christian apart from the church, membership becomes the indispensable mark of salvation.

“So highly does the Lord esteem the communion of His church,” Calvin wrote,” that He considers everyone a traitor and apostate from religion who perversely withdraws himself from any Christian society which preserves the true ministry of the word and sacraments.” 

Charles W. Colson, The Body, 1992, Word Publishing, p. 70.

If you neglect it, you do so to your own peril, for the Word of God is a sword, and we either fall upon the rock, or the rock falls upon us.

Isa 61:2 To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn;

Jesus is interested in a relationship with you, not a 45 minute date every Sunday morning. Make Him first in your life.

Joyce Meyer quotes:
Yet, we love…We pray, we forgive, and as we do, evil regimes, empires, and governmental structures that do not align themselves with Jesus and His Word, fall before Him, crushed at His feet.

Mt 21:44 And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder.

fall on Jesus
1Pe 2:8 And a stone of stumbling, and a rock of offence, even to them which stumble at the word, being disobedient: whereunto also they were appointed.

And so we go, led of heaven. Living in love, bearing fruit that is out of this world…

I know it’s Christmas, and I should write some cute Happy Birthday Jesus message, but I am determined to help you, that your life might bear eternal consequence and reward…

Let’s Pray:
“Lord Jesus, I humble myself before Your throne, today, seeking Your face, to do Your will. Lead me, direct me, bless me, and cause me to understand Your Word, Your Will, and Your ways. As You speak, may I be quick to obey, that I might see again Your power and glory, Amen’

Cry out for Breakthrough!

Cry out for Breakthrough!

The Breaker has come!

Micah 2:13 The breaker is come up before them: they have broken up, and have passed through the gate, and are gone out by it: and their king shall pass before them, and the LORD on the head of them.
Is 45:2 I will go before thee, and make the crooked places straight: I will break in pieces the gates of brass, and cut in sunder the bars of iron:
3 And I will give thee the treasures of darkness, and hidden riches of secret places, that thou mayest know that I, the LORD, which call thee by thy name, am the God of Israel.
These are wonderful verses!

Jesus has risen from the dead!

All the power of man and hell could not stop Him, and cannot today!

He is Lord, God, and all authority in heaven and earth has been given to Him, and He is your Shepherd, Lord and God.
Got an impossible obstacle?

possible God
I have good news: The Breaker has come!
Jesus loves you, and delights to deliver you, just because He can!
Psalm 18:19 (AKJV)
19 He brought me forth also into a large place;
he delivered me, because he delighted in me.
Let’s pray:
“Father, I have received Jesus as my Lord, and I believe He is making a way for me, where there appears to be no way. Jesus, break the chains I cannot see, the wicked agendas of men, demons, structures, that have limited me, and sought to crush my faith, my dreams, my heart. Open ways for me, and do what only you can do, bring me into a large place, by Your mighty hand, by Your power and grace, for YOUR glory Lord Jesus, Amen!’
