Forgive – Forgiveness, the lost art….

Forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us.

forgive return

Forgiveness

Some years ago, I taught a 26 lesson course on the Lord’s prayer I entitled, ‘Foundations’. We talked about Spiritual Warfare, and knowing thy enemy.Yet remember the Lords prayer:

“‘Our Father who art in heaven in heaven, hallowed be your name,

 Your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.

Give us today our daily bread.

 

Forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.

 

And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.

For thine is the kingdom, the power, and glory, forever and ever.

We spent many weeks learning who our heavenly Father is. We spent several weeks discovering Redemptive Realities, and what your daily bread is, as a child of God.

Understanding forgiveness is something so fundamental, and important to your success in this life, that all of eternity is hinged upon it.

Our topic today is forgiveness. Without forgiveness, none of us can approach our holy God.

We understand that Jesus died to provide for us access to the throne of God, it is because we are forgiven, that we must forgive. Read with me if you will, this passage of Scripture.

(Mat 18:21 NIV)  Then Peter came to Jesus and asked, “Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother when he sins against me? Up to seven times?”

(Mat 18:22 NIV)  Jesus answered, “I tell you, not seven times, but seventy-seven times.

forgive 70 x 7

(Mat 18:23 NIV)  “Therefore, the kingdom of heaven is like a king who wanted to settle accounts with his servants.

Who is this king?

Why king Jesus of course.

(Mat 18:24 NIV)  As he began the settlement, a man who owed him ten thousand talents was brought to him.

Like this man, all of us owe a debt to God, we can never repay. No, all the good works in the world will not cover up even one sin, for God can tolerate no evil in His presence. Yet, the blood of Jesus cleanses us from the deepest evil we can imagine.

(Mat 18:25 NIV)  Since he was not able to pay, the master ordered that he and his wife and his children and all that he had be sold to repay the debt.

(Mat 18:26 NIV)  “The servant fell on his knees before him. ‘Be patient with me,’ he begged, ‘and I will pay back everything.’

Each of us have found ourselves in this place. On our knees before the judge of all judges, the king of all kings, pleading for our very life. Asking for mercy, simply because we suspect He is a good God, that He might forgive us.

forgive from Jesus

(Mat 18:27 NIV)  The servant’s master took pity on him, canceled the debt and let him go.

Sure enough, we see the heart of our loving savior and merciful lord here. Each of us have found mercy in the sight of our God, and had our sins forgiven, and have been released from every debt.

Whom God has justified, what man shall condemn?

(Mat 18:28 NIV)  “But when that servant went out, he found one of his fellow servants who owed him a hundred denarii. He grabbed him and began to choke him. ‘Pay back what you owe me!’ he demanded.

Yet, look at the behaviour of this wicked servant. He did not understand the magnitude of what had been done for him. His lord had forgiven him, as an act of benevolence unparalleled in all of history. This man had been forgiven, yet had not forgiven himself yet. He did not grasp the purpose of his being forgiven. Having received mercy, we are to show mercy for it is written:

(Mat 5:7 NIV)  Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy.

Yet, how many of us are like this man, having obtained mercy from God, yet unable to let go those who owe us something. Especially if there is money involved. We cannot serve God and money. Let’s continue reading this story.

(Mat 18:29 NIV)  “His fellow servant fell to his knees and begged him, ‘Be patient with me, and I will pay you back.’

(Mat 18:30 NIV)  “But he refused. Instead, he went off and had the man thrown into prison until he could pay the debt.

(Mat 18:31 NIV)  When the other servants saw what had happened, they were greatly distressed and went and told their master everything that had happened.

Notice here who told on this wicked servant. Other servants. When a Christian chooses to sin, other Christians are well within their rights to take their case before God, our heavenly king.

(Mat 18:32 NIV)  “Then the master called the servant in. ‘You wicked servant,’ he said, ‘I canceled all that debt of yours because you begged me to.

(Mat 18:33 NIV)  Shouldn’t you have had mercy on your fellow servant just as I had on you?’

(Mat 18:34 NIV)  In anger his master turned him over to the jailers to be tortured, until he should pay back all he owed.

I want you to see this. Unforgiveness will produce torment in your life. When you choose not to forgive, you go into bondage. You get turned over to the tormenters.

(Mat 18:35 NIV)  “This is how my heavenly Father will treat each of you unless you forgive your brother from your heart.”

You must see this, not only did this wicked servant get delivered over to the torturers because of his unwillingness to forgive another, but it looks like the man who owed him also went with him. Your unforgiveness not only will put you in bondage, but puts the one you hate into bondage with you.

If they get right with God, they will go free, but you will stay in torment. Why,? Because your unforgiveness is a sin against God, and God will hold you accountable for it.

In fact, you can eventually end up in hell over it.

forgive commanded

Let reread this passage from Matt 6, where Jesus gives us the Lord’s prayer.

9  “This, then, is how you should pray: “‘Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name,

Your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.

Give us today our daily bread.

Forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.

And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.’

For if you forgive men when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.

But if you do not forgive men their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.

We are commanded to forgive others. If we will not, God will not forgive us. Forgiveness is an act of our will. Not matter what they did to you, you must obey God and forgive them. God will deal with them on your behalf, only after you forgive.

Just to Show you how important forgiveness is to God, I’ve listed some verses on it below.

Forgiveness:

(Mat 26:28 NIV)  This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.

To forgive you cost Jesus His very blood.

(Luke 1:77 NIV)  to give his people the knowledge of salvation through the forgiveness of their sins,

(Luke 24:47 NIV)  and repentance and forgiveness of sins will be preached in his name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.

(Acts 2:38 NIV)  Peter replied, “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.

It is only after you are forgiven, that you can receive the Holy Spirit.

(Acts 5:31 NIV)  God exalted him to his own right hand as Prince and Savior that he might give repentance and forgiveness of sins to Israel.

(Acts 10:43 NIV)  All the prophets testify about him that everyone who believes in him receives forgiveness of sins through his name.”

(Acts 13:38 NIV)  “Therefore, my brothers, I want you to know that through Jesus the forgiveness of sins is proclaimed to you.

(Acts 26:18 NIV)  to open their eyes and turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to God, so that they may receive forgiveness of sins and a place among those who are sanctified by faith in me.’
(Eph 1:7 NIV)  In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace

(Col 1:14 NIV)  in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.

(Heb 9:22 NIV)  In fact, the law requires that nearly everything be cleansed with blood, and without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness.

Luke 23:34  Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do. And they parted his raiment, and cast lots.

forgive them for they know not

There is no other religion on the face of the planet that can give the guarantee Jesus gives. If we accept His sacrifice on the cross on our behalf, we are forgiven of our sins, before a Holy God.

Notice that these verses above deal mainly with our forgiveness before God. Yet, He commands us to forgive.

Col 3:13  Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.

forgive Col 3

Matt 6,

Forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.

13  And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.’

14  For if you forgive men when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.

  • But if you do not forgive men their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.

Mark 11

22  “Have faith in God,” Jesus answered.

23  “I tell you the truth, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart but believes that what he says will happen, it will be done for him.

24  Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.

  • And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive him, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins.”

We believe the faith message on purpose. Yet, faith worketh by love. Forgiveness is part of our love walk. This verse is standard faith food. Notice that our unforgiveness will hinder God from answering our prayers.

Luke 6

37  “Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven.

  • Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.”

Luke 17:1  Jesus said to his disciples: “Things that cause people to sin are bound to come, but woe to that person through whom they come.

2  It would be better for him to be thrown into the sea with a millstone tied around his neck than for him to cause one of these little ones to sin.

3  So watch yourselves. “If your brother sins, rebuke him, and if he repents, forgive him.

4  If he sins against you seven times in a day, and seven times comes back to you and says, ‘I repent,’ forgive him.”

5  The apostles said to the Lord, “Increase our faith!”

  • He replied, “If you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mulberry tree, ‘Be uprooted and planted in the sea,’ and it will obey you.

Bitter-Root Judgements and Expectancies

What you believe determines what you have, and who you are. If you, deep within yourself, know God loves you, then you believe that something good is going to happen to you, and you are an optimist. These people are great to be around because no matter what happens, they are always looking for a solution, and finding it. Yet, the negative is also true, if you, deep down, believe you are a nothing, a nobody, and that bad things are always happening to you, well, except for the grace of God, that’s all you will ever experience in life. Yet  “the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.” Heb 4:12. The good news is that God does heart surgery on us to change the way we view ourselves, and the way we think.

Let’s look for a minute on how these negative thought patterns can control us. Let’s say you had a rough childhood, and no matter how hard you tried, people bigger than you beat you up, or mistreated you. If you don’t know God, you don’t know enough to forgive them, and to “Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you”, as Jesus teaches us in Matt 5:44. So, day after day, week after week, month after month, year after year, this pattern develops in your life. People hurt you. You judge them, and the very thing you judge them for begins to come back upon you for it is written, “Do not judge, or you too will be judged. For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you. Matt 7:1. This is not some theological premise, but rather, spiritual law. When you judge another, the judgement you give them comes back on you. The problem is, if the process of them hurting you goes on long enough, you become bitter, and deep within yourself you develop what is called a bitter-root expectancy. Rage. That is why the Scripture says: “ See to it that no one misses the grace of God and that no bitter root grows up to cause trouble and defile many” Heb 12:15. This root within you expects the worst to happen to you, often subconsciously. Well, these are easy to discover in your life, because you simply have to look at the patterns of negative behavior that seem to continue. The way of escape is the same. Forgive all those that have hurt you, and decide to kill this negative cycle in your life. How? By putting it to death on the cross with Jesus. When He died, it died, and you get to go free. Heart surgery. Free on the inside.

Ex 15:23  And when they came to Marah, they could not drink of the waters of Marah, for they were bitter: therefore the name of it was called Marah. (Marah means ‘bitter’ in Hebrew)

forgive Marah

24  And the people murmured against Moses, saying, What shall we drink?

25  And he cried unto the LORD; and the LORD shewed him a tree, which when he had cast into the waters, the waters were made sweet: there he made for them a statute and an ordinance, and there he proved them,

26  And said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the LORD that healeth thee.

See this in the Old Testament. They came to a place of bitter waters. Moses cried out to God for help. God showed him a tree ( a shadow and type of the cross), that made bitter waters sweet, and God revealed Himself here as Jehovah Rapha, the Great Physician, the Lord that healeth us. God cares about the pain people inflicted on you, but you have only one choice as a Christian, and that is to get healed.

Hebrews 12:15

If you forgive anyone his sins, they are forgiven; if you do not forgive them, they are not forgiven.”

10  If you forgive anyone, I also forgive him. And what I have forgiven–if there was anything to forgive–I have forgiven in the sight of Christ for your sake

in order that Satan might not outwit us. For we are not unaware of his schemes.

Jesus did it, as a man operating in the authority of a man under the anointing of the Holy Spirit, in his earthly ministry.

You can too. Why? Priests in the Old Testament offered up sacrifices for sins.

(1 Pet 2:9 NIV)  But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.

It is part of the high priestly ministry of Jesus, and you are part of his body, an ambassador, acting on his behalf in the earth. You act like he would act if He were here in the flesh. Would He forgive? So should you, for He has given you legal authority to act on His behalf. As He was, so are we in the earth.

Luke 5

17  One day as he was teaching, Pharisees and teachers of the law, who had come from every village of Galilee and from Judea and Jerusalem, were sitting there. And the power of the Lord was present for him to heal the sick.

18  Some men came carrying a paralytic on a mat and tried to take him into the house to lay him before Jesus.

19  When they could not find a way to do this because of the crowd, they went up on the roof and lowered him on his mat through the tiles into the middle of the crowd, right in front of Jesus.

20  When Jesus saw their faith, he said, “Friend, your sins are forgiven.”

21  The Pharisees and the teachers of the law began thinking to themselves, “Who is this fellow who speaks blasphemy? Who can forgive sins but God alone?”

22  Jesus knew what they were thinking and asked, “Why are you thinking these things in your hearts?

23  Which is easier: to say, ‘Your sins are forgiven,’ or to say, ‘Get up and walk’?

24  But that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins. . . .” He said to the paralyzed man, “I tell you, get up, take your mat and go home.”

25  Immediately he stood up in front of them, took what he had been lying on and went home praising God.

  • Everyone was amazed and gave praise to God. They were filled with awe and said, “We have seen remarkable things today.”

There will be times in our lives that we will ask God to forgive people their sins, and He will hear, and will forgive them on our account.

Today, I give you a homework assignment (5 Questions)

  1. Come clean with God. Ask Him to show you all the things you’ve done that offend him, and ask Him to forgive you.
forgive scarlet2.         Come clean with others. Ask God to show you all the people who have hurt you, and forgive them. I had to make a 21 page list, forgive them, then burn the list
3.          Come clean with yourself. Ask God to show you all the areas of your life where you are beating yourself up, and forgive yourself
4.      Ask God to show you any bitter-root judgements and expectancies you have made, and that are still operating in your life. By faith, kill them, by placing them on the cross where Jesus died for you. If they seek to operate again in your life, recognize them, and stand against them. Determine to be the best person you can possibly be.
  1. Ask God to show you other people that are caught in this trap, and pray for them. There will be healing in it for you. (Job 42:10 NIV) After Job had prayed for his friends, the LORD made him prosperous again and gave him twice as much as he had before.

  • But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.

In the KJV this verse says the Holy Spirit will bring all things to you remembrance that I have taught you.

God will help you with this.

The Word of God shall talk with thee!

The Word of God shall talk with thee!

Proverbs 6:22  When thou goest, it shall lead thee; when thou sleepest, it shall keep thee; and when thou awakest, it shall talk with thee.

WOG when you go

Heb 4:12  For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

WOG living and active

The wonderful thing about the Word of God is that it is alive! The reason it is alive, is because the Holy Spirit is the one who breathed upon pen (inspired) them, to write exactly what He said. Since God is omniscient, and omnipresent, He is literally here, every time we open the book. Time, to Him is simply like a parade. He can see the beginning from the end from His throne in eternity, and can enter the parade whenever, or wherever He pleases. When He shows up, He is always, ‘I Am’, our ever present help in time of need. One writer stated that the Bible is the only book ever written, where the author is always present when we read it.

WOG alive

I have noticed this over the years, that as I faithfully share the Word of God that is alive and active to me each day, Holy Spirit makes it alive and active to others too, and suddenly, I realize again, that I am simply an instrument in the hand of our ever living God, and He takes my simple offering of preaching, teaching, blogging, or publishing the Word of God on every available voice to me, and this very Word is a living organism! It comes in seed form, but when I plant it into the earth in this generation, by faith, and water it with my prayer:

WOG speak

Acts 19:20

Thus the Word of the Lord [concerning the attainment through Christ of eternal salvation in the kingdom of God] grew and spread and intensified, prevailing mightily

Acts 19:20 (DARBY)

20 Thus with might the word of the Lord increased and prevailed

Do you see it! The Word of God is alive! It has a life of it’s own! It grows, and with might shows forth the glory of God, wherever it lands!

Psalm 119:130

The entrance and unfolding of Your words give light; their unfolding gives understanding (discernment and comprehension) to the simple.

Wherever His Word enters, the light and life of God comes, in power!

WOG light

I cannot count the times this very word has gone into nations I have not yet been to, and Holy Spirit has used my devotionals to heal, deliver, touch, and bless people it would be unlikely I could ever meet naturally.

Things can look fine according to outward appearances, but He looks much deeper within, into not only what we are doing, but rather why. When our why’s don’t agree with His why’s, He can gently instruct, correct, counsel, and refine us, so that we become more like Him in our thinking, and very motives!

2 Peter 1

Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)

Simon Peter, a servant and an apostle of Jesus Christ, to them that have obtained like precious faith with us through the righteousness of God and our Saviour Jesus Christ: Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord, according as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue: whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.

WOG promise

Every day, I take time to meditate upon the Word of God. There are different ways I do this, but my favorite, by far, is to simply lay down with the audio Bible playing, simply asking Holy Spirit to speak to me, each time. Faithfully, for years, He has, and does!

Let the Word of God talk with thee today!

WOG speak bw

Each day, I encourage people to seek Jesus first thing each morning, and to read through their Bible in some sort of yearly Bible reading plan. Each night, we have been playing the audio Bible in our house for over 20 years, falling asleep with the prayer: “Jesus, tell me a bedtime story”. And He has continually opened His Word to our understanding, making His promises alive to us as He directs us day by day.
Let’s Pray:

‘Father, I am ever looking towards heaven and your will for my life. Speak to me, the specifics that You have for me, today. Not only what I need to be doing, but my reasons for doing it, in Your name I pray Lord Jesus, Amen’

prayer-possible

If you need prayer for anything specific, please send us a note on the prayer request form, and we will pray for you. Then, after God answers, I ask that you take a second and send us an update, so we can be encouraged, and the devil can again be defeated by Jesus blood, and your testimony!

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?
Chris Karen Walsh's photo.

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!

Some Like to Read, some like to listen:

Many of you know my testimony, of how I was healed of epilepsy when I was 15 years old at a charismatic healing service, and able to obtain my driver’s license.

Many of you know of my more recent gradual healing from a stroke and high blood pressure…

Many more know of the divine healing ministry granted to me by the Lord Jesus Christ, how, after losing eight of my family members to various sicknesses and diseases, I went on a 40 day fast, one meal/day, and prayed almost day and night for answers, as to why the ministry of divine healing appeared to be sometimes hit and miss.

How God brought me from my home country Canada, to Tulsa, Oklahoma, to sit at the feet of Kenneth E. Hagin, and attend both Rhema Bible Training Center, but to also sit in healing school for a year and a half, and actually see Jesus heal the sick…

During this time, the Lord commissioned me to produce two healing cassettes specifically to be listened to by those in intensive or palliative care, gentle soothing words from heaven, set to instrumental praise from one of the most anointed and gifted pianists in the world, Dino.

Dino has graciously given me permission to distribute them free of charge to anyone requiring healing, and as I have done this over the years, thousands of people have been healed by the power of God!

Here are the links to listen or download the ministry:

Please duplicate, share, or somehow get them in the hands of sick people!

If you like to read, I have included my sermon notes from a message I preached, entitled:

Seven Reasons Why You Should be Healed Today:

heal

1. Creation and Heaven reveal the nature of God.

When we read the Genesis account, on what day did God create sickness? He didn’t, it is the result of the fall of man. As John Alexander Dowie put it, sickness is the foul offspring of mother sin, and father Satan. It is not your friend, but an enemy to be destroyed.

In Heaven there is no sickness, for that is where God dwells. In Revelation 21:4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.

Now, we are children of the king, and Jesus is Lord right? We claim to serve Him, so what did he teach us to pray. Matt 6:9 ¶ After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.

10 Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

If we are to pray for the will of God here in the earth, as it is in heaven. Obviously, we are to pray for healing, for there is no sickness, death, sorrow or pain there.

What is the first reason that you should be healed today? The next verse in the Lords prayer or Our Father.

11 Give us this day our daily bread. Well, healing is the children’s bread, and today is the day to receive it.

In Matthew 15:26 Jesus spoke to a woman who came to him for healing for her daughter. He said “But he answered and said, It is not meet to take the children’s bread, and to cast it to dogs.” What was he talking about here? Healing. You are a child of God if you have accepted Jesus sacrifice for you on the cross. Healing is your bread.

2. Now, lets look at the second reason you should be healed today.

God healed people in the Old Testament.

Exodus 23:25 And ye shall serve the LORD your God, and he shall bless thy bread, and thy water; and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee.

heal exodus

Notice that if a person were to serve God under the Old Covenant, God promised to take sickness away from them. Notice here that this is not just healing but also an agreement between God and His people of divine health, of literally taking sickness away from the midst of His people. Hebrews 8:6 speaking of Jesus states “But now hath he obtained a more excellent ministry, by how much also he is the mediator of a better covenant, which was established upon better promises.” If God promised to take sickness away from the midst of His people in the Old Covenant. How much more will He do for you today because of the agreement He made with Jesus.

He healed wonderfully in the Old Testament, Exodus 15:26 And said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the LORD that healeth thee. Jehovah Rapha.

The children of Israel knew it to be true, for God had delivered them from every physical ailment miraculously when he gave them the covenant of Passover. We don’t have time to really go into detail on Exodus 12, and Christ’s fulfillment of this verse, yet for you Bible scholars jot down these verses: Ex 12, Ps 105:37, 1Cor 11:32 onward. Know this though, you all remember the story. Moses and the Ten Commandments, God had done ten judgments on Egypt, and then prepared His people to leave. On the last night came the final judgment upon the Egyptians, a death angel was to come, and strike dead every firstborn child in every house that did not have the blood of the lamb applied to its doorposts. A lamb without spot or blemish. Jesus. Yet, the body of that lamb was to be eaten wholly, with 11 And thus shall ye eat it; with your loins girded, your shoes on your feet, and your staff in your hand; and ye shall eat it in haste: it is the LORD’S Passover.

God moved, judgment came, and great fear came upon the people. 35 And the children of Israel did according to the word of Moses; and they borrowed of the Egyptians jewels of silver, and jewels of gold, and raiment:

36 And the LORD gave the people favour in the sight of the Egyptians, so that they lent unto them such things as they required. And they spoiled the Egyptians.

Psalms 105:37 He brought them forth also with silver and gold: and there was not one feeble person among their tribes.

Can I preach in this place a little bit? Think about this. Historians tell us that somewhere around 2 and a half million Israelites marched out of Egypt that night. A people sold into slavery, a whipped, beaten, broken people. Tell me how they could physically march out of Egypt after over four hundred years of slavery with all their children, flocks and herds. Think about it. Uncle Seth, you know the one with the limp he got from an Egyptian soldier, aunt Sarah blind in one eye from the beating she took. They killed the lamb, applied the blood, and then they ate the body of the lamb, with their belts on, shoes on, luggage packed, and what happened? All across the nation of Israel, God Himself visited His people, and suddenly Uncle Seth ain’t limping no more. Aunt Sarah can see! Every ache, pain, sickness, sniffle, cough and misery left, instantly healed by the power of God as they partook of the lamb, so that they marched out strong in the Lord and the power of His might.

and there was not one feeble person among their tribes!

So if God healed His people in the Old Testament, and we are under a better covenant based upon better promises, you should be healed today. In our communion ordinance we have it wrong. 1 Corinthians 11:29 For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord’s body.

What are we to discern in communion. The cup is representative of Jesus shed blood for the forgiveness of our sins. It prevents death and eternal separation from God. But what about the bread? It is representative of Jesus body. He took stripes in His body that our body be healed. The Israelite ate the body of the lamb, and they were healed.

1 Corinthians 11:30 For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep. What cause? The fact that Christian had not discerned the Lord’s body, by faith in the ordinance of communion. This verse says that because of this many of us are sick and some die prematurely, yet it ought not to be so. Seeing Christ in the Passover ceremony will produce healing.

3. The third reason you should be healed today because it is part of your redemption:

heal peter 2-24

Remember I taught you that you are the redeemed of the Lord, bought by His blood. That redemption means to be bought back to ones original state. Well, in light of the blood of Jesus, 1 Corinthians 15:45 And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit.

Jesus is not only your substitute for sin, but also for your sickness. Is 53:4 ¶ Surely he hath borne our griefs, (sicknesses) and carried our sorrows (pain) yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. Isaiah 53:5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.

Now this was a prophecy given by the prophet Isaiah that was literally fulfilled in the earthly ministry of Jesus.

Matt 8:16 When the even was come, they brought unto him many that were possessed with devils: and he cast out the spirits with his word, and healed all that were sick:

17 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses.

Yet, it didn’t end there. He died a cruel death on a Roman cross, beaten beyond human recognition so that you wouldn’t have to. He literally bore your sickness and disease on that cruel tree. Broken that you might be healed. Doctors tell us they have discovered there are 39 main categories of diseases in the earth today. Jesus took thirty-nine lashes, a lash for every disease known to man. He did it for you, His love, His life, His death, and His resurrection deserves a response.

1 Peter 2:24 Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.

heal cross

He took your pain; therefore you have no more right to it. You are not your own. His love and sacrifice demand that you be healed today.

4. The fourth reason you should be healed today is that sickness is from the devil, and you are a child of God.

It is not your friend, something to be held up as a badge of courage, something allowed cultivating the sympathy of those around you. A twisted cry for love and pity from the heart of man, a perversion of what God longs to give. Perfect love that destroys your every fear. John 10:10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. The nature of Satan is to steal your strength, your health, and your life if you allow it. Yet, today there is an infusion of life from heaven for you for it is written:

Acts 10:38 How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.

Healing is good. Healing is of God. Sickness is of the devil. God wants to break the yoke of oppression upon your life. 1 John 3:8 He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.

devil

I too am a son of God, and for this purpose am I hear to preach to you today. For I know my Lord, and He is not a liar like some of you. He always backs up his word with His power. There are more than two of us gathered here together in His name. He’s here, and He’s the same yesterday today and forever. He is Almighty, and He is here to Heal. He longs to manifest Himself, He’s simply been waiting for someone with enough guts to preach His word the way it is being preached today. With boldness.

Today is the day of salvation, Today is the day of your healing.

5. The fifth reason you should be healed today is because Jesus healed everyone who came to him during His earthly ministry, and He is the same yesterday today and forever.

heal2

Now there were some cases where He went to people, and they wouldn’t receive Him, and they were not healed. Yet, tonight, you have come to receive healing as an act of your will. He cannot fail.

Mark 5: 25 And a certain woman, which had an issue of blood twelve years,

26 And had suffered many things of many physicians, and had spent all that she had, and was nothing bettered, but rather grew worse,

27 When she had heard of Jesus, came in the press behind, and touched his garment.

28 For she said, If I may touch but his clothes, I shall be whole.

29 And straightway the fountain of her blood was dried up; and she felt in her body that she was healed of that plague.

30 And Jesus, immediately knowing in himself that virtue had gone out of him, turned him about in the press, and said, Who touched my clothes?

31 And his disciples said unto him, Thou seest the multitude thronging thee, and sayest thou, Who touched me?

32 And he looked round about to see her that had done this thing.

33 But the woman fearing and trembling, knowing what was done in her, came and fell down before him, and told him all the truth.

34 And he said unto her, Daughter, thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace, and be whole of thy plague.

Now if her faith made her whole, your faith will make you whole for God is no respecter of persons.

Some may say, Jesus did it for her but how do I know that He will do it for me?

Matthew 4:24 And his fame went throughout all Syria: and they brought unto him all sick people that were taken with divers diseases and torments, and those which were possessed with devils, and those which were lunatick, and those that had the palsy; and he healed them.

Matthew 12:15 But when Jesus knew it, he withdrew himself from thence: and great multitudes followed him, and he healed them all;

Luke 4:40 Now when the sun was setting, all they that had any sick with divers diseases brought them unto him; and he laid his hands on every one of them, and healed them.

Luke 6:17 And he came down with them, and stood in the plain, and the company of his disciples, and a great multitude of people out of all Judaea and Jerusalem, and from the sea coast of Tyre and Sidon, which came to hear him, and to be healed of their diseases;

Luke 6:19 And the whole multitude sought to touch him: for there went virtue out of him, and healed them all.

Matthew 8:2 And, behold, there came a leper and worshipped him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean.

Matthew 8:3 And Jesus put forth his hand, and touched him, saying, I will; be thou clean. And immediately his leprosy was cleansed.

He still will. Today.

heal1

6. The sixth reason you should be healed today, is because God has committed healing to His church.

Matthew 10:1 And when he had called unto him his twelve disciples, he gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease.6 But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.

7 And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand.

8 Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.

Mark 16:15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.

16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.

17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;

18 They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.

19 ¶ So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God.

20 And they went forth, and preached every where, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen.

James 5:14 Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord:

James 5:15 And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.

heal James 5-15

I am an elder in the church. I am going to pray for you. I believe God’s Word. You will be healed, and don’t think there is some sin that will stop God’s healing power here tonight. If you have committed sins, they will be forgiven you.

7. The Final reason you should be healed today is that God’s Word is medicine.

Now this medicine is wonderful medicine. You cannot overdose, and it has wonderful side effects like wisdom, peace, prosperity and so on.

Pr 4:20 ¶ My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings.

21 Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart.

22 For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh.

23 Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.

Health = marpe: a medicine, a cure, a deliverance, a healing, a remedy, with the sense of soundness and wholeness.

Proverbs 12:18 There is that speaketh like the piercings of a sword: but the tongue of the wise is health.

Proverbs 13:17 A wicked messenger falleth into mischief: but a faithful ambassador is health.

Proverbs 16:24 Pleasant words are as an honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones.

Malachi 4:2 But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall.

heal medicine

Now some of you have been healed already, simply by sitting there. Why? Well, God kind of snuck up on you. While you have sat under His Word today. Something deep inside of you quietly decided to believe the word of God, and God acted according to your faith, and if you check you’ll discover that every symptom of pain, sickness and affliction has left your body as the Lord worked with me, gently walking all over the internet, performing His word, and healing the sick.

Yet, there are some of you who need the prayer of faith for you by the elders, and I am willing and available. Today is your day.

Scriptural Prayers

I have simply copied the verse, and written a brief prayer afterwards, praying the verse back to our Father, who ever watches over His Word to perform it!

Psalms 30:2 O LORD my God, I cried unto thee, and thou hast healed me.

5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.

Thank you Lord Jesus that you already took my sickness and pain on the cross. You were wounded for my transgressions, bruised for my iniquities, the chastisement I needed to obtain peace was already laid upon you, and by the stripes you took in your body, my body is healed. Father, I believe your Word, and thank you for performing it for me. Sickness, pain go, in Jesus name!

Matthew 8:17 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses.

I thank you Father that Jesus fulfilled all the law and the prophets. That He is the same yesterday, today and forever. As He healed in his earthly ministry, so He is my shepherd now, healing me today. Thank-you Jesus for healing me.

Luke 9:11 And the people, when they knew it, followed him: and he received them, and spake unto them of the kingdom of God, and healed them that had need of healing.

Jesus Christ (the Messiah) is [always] the same, yesterday, today, [yes] and forever (to the ages)

Jesus, you healed everyone that had need of healing while you were on the earth. You said it was better that you go away, that the Holy Spirit be given, so that you can now heal anyone, anywhere that believes. I believe you are my healer. I receive your healing, now. I thank you that your Word and your spirit are working mightily in me effecting a healing and a cure.

Call for the elders of the church:

James 5: 14 Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord:
15 And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.
16 Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.

Father, I thank you for elders in the body of Christ who you have gifted with faith for my healing. Where I’ve sinned against you, please show me and forgive me. I set myself in agreement with the elders of my church, and by faith, I receive my healing.

1 Peter 2:24 Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.
Thank you Father that Jesus took stripes in His body that my body be healed.

Mark 11:23 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.

Father, I speak to the mountains of sickness, disease, and pain and command them to move. I speak to poverty, debt and lack, and command these mountains move. I thank you for health, provision, and deliverance. In Jesus name, Amen.

Pr 4:20 ¶ My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings.
21 Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart.
22 For they are life unto those that find them, and health(marpe) to all their flesh.
23. Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.

Father, I pay careful attention to your Word, keeping it in the midst of my heart. I thank you that it is health, healing, a remedy, a deliverance, a medicine, soundness and wholeness to every part of my being. By faith I keep my heart with all diligence, trusting that that words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart are acceptable in your sight.

Mark 16:18 They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.

Father, I believe your supernatural power is negating any ill effects from any medicine, additive in my food or drink, or toxin in the environment. If I have drank any deadly thing, it shall in no way hurt me. I have had hands laid upon me, and I am recovering. Thank you for it, in Jesus name.

Acts 10:38 How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.

Sickness is from the devil, healing is from God. I thank you that the same anointing of the Holy Spirit that was on Jesus in His early ministry, is upon Him and His body now. I believe Jesus is healing me, and that all of Satan’s oppression is broken off of my life. Satan go! I thank you that the anointing is working in me mightily, effecting a healing and a cure.

Healing America Tour – Choctaw/Spanish

Heal Our Land!

As I have spent a recent time over in the Holy Spirit, praying in other tongues, it has come to my attention that I need to go to Mobile, Alabama, and pray over the land, to cleanse it from the defilements resulting in the innocent bloodshed of the Choctaws at the hands of the Spanish conquistador De Soto.

For those of you unfamiliar with why I do this, know that I am committed to a move of the Holy Spirit in the United States of America, and if you have been to many prayer meetings, you have heard quoted:

2 Chronicles 7:14New International Version (NIV)

14 if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

Ever thought about the land itself needing healing?

It can be defiled by innocent bloodshed:

Psalm 106:38

They shed innocent blood, the blood of their sons and daughters, whom they sacrificed to the idols of Canaan, and the land was desecrated by their blood.

Only the blood of Jesus, applied by faith can do this…

It is my intention to travel to Mobile, Alabama to the site of the Choctaw massacre of 1540 where an estimated 11,000 Choctaw were killed in battle defending their home. No date for this trip is yet set. If you would like to join me, please either call or text me at 918 851 4070, or email: chris.aomministries@gmail.com.

History of the Choctaw, Chickasaw and Natchez Indians – Horatio Bardwell Cushman

Pages 79-83

The Choctaws were first made known to the European world by the journalists of that memorable adventurer, Hernando De Soto, who invaded their territory October, 1540, and introduced the civilized (so-called) race of mankind to the Choctaws in the following manner: A manly young Indian of splendid proportions, and with a face extremely attractive and interesting, visited De Soto after he had left Tallase. He was the son of Tuscaloosa (corruption of the Choctaw words territories extended to the distant Tom big bee in the west. (Tom big bee is a corruption of the Choctaw words Itombi, box, ikbi, maker), a name given to a white man, it is said, who, at an early day, settled on the banks of the river and made boxes for the Choctaws, in which were placed the bones of their dead, which will be particularly noticed elsewhere. The young warrior bore an invitation from his father to De Soto to visit him at his capital. The next day De Soto, advancing to within six miles of where the great chief awaited him, made a halt, and sent Louis de Mascosso with fifteen horsemen to inform Tush ka Lusa of his near approach. Mascosso and his troopers soon appeared before Tush ka Lusa, who was seated upon an emin ence commanding a broad and delightful view. He was a man of powerful stature, muscular limbs, yet of admirable proportions, with a countenance grave and severe, yet handsome. When De Soto arrived Tush ka Lusa arose and advanced to meet him with a proud and haughty air, and said: “Great Chief; I receive you as a brother, and welcome you to my country. I am ready to comply with your requests.” After a few preliminaries, in company with Tush ka Lusa and his followers, De Soto took up his line of march for Mobila the capital of the mighty chief. (Mobila is a corruption of the two Choctaw words moma, all, binah, a lodge, literally a Choctaw word Pi-a-chih, to care for us), they passed through many populous towns, well stored with corn, beans and other provisions. On the fourth morning, De Soto, with a hundred cavalry and as many infantry, made a forced march with Tush ka Lusa in the direction of Mobila, leaving Mascosso to bring up the rear. At eight o’clock the same morning, October 18th, 1540, De Soto and Tush ka Lusa reached the capital. It stood by the si de of a large river, upon a beautiful plain, and consisted of e ighty handsome houses, each large enough to contain a thousand men, and all fronting a large public square. Dodge says in his book styled “Our Wild Indians” that “The aboriginal inhabitants of the North American continent, have never at any time exceeded half a million souls;” yet according to De Soto’s journalists who were with him in his memorable raid, Mobila alone, “consisted of eighty handsome houses, each large enough to contain a thousand men;” and if each house contained Dodge’s “several families consisting of men, with two or three wives, and children of all ages and sexes, occupy for all purposes one single lodge of 12 or 15 feet in diameter what must have been the number of indabitants in Mobila with “80 handsome houses, each large enough to contain a thousand men” with two, three, or more wives, and children The reader can make the calculation at his own leisure; though it seems Mobila alone contained over half the number of souls that Dodge allows for the entire continent, “at one time.” A high wall surrounded the town, made of immense trunks of trees set close together and deep in the ground, and made strong with heavy cross timbers interwoven with large vines. A thick mud plaster, resembling handsome masonry, concealed the wood work, while port-holes were abundant, together with towers, capable of holding eight men each, at the distance of fifteen paces apart. There were two gates leading into the town, one on the east, the other on the west. De Soto and Tush ka Lusa were escorted into the great public square with songs and chants, and the dancing of beautiful Indian girls. They alighted from their horses, and were given seats under a canopy of state. Having remained seated for a short time, Tush ka Lusa now requested that he should no longer be held as a hostage; to which De Soto giving no heed, the indignant chief at once arose and walked off with an independent attitude to where a group of his warriors stood. De Soto had scarcely recovered from his surprise at the independent conduct of Tush ka Lusa, when Jean Ortez followed the chief and stated that breakfast awaited him at De Soto’s table; but he refused to return, and added, “If of my territory.” At this juncture De Soto secretly sent word to his men to be prepared for an attack. Then, hoping to prevent an attack until he could again get in possession of the chief, De Soto advanced toward him with assumed smiles and words of friendship, but Tush ka Lusa scornfully turned his back upon him, and was soon hidden among the multitude of now highly excited warriors. Just then a warrior rushed out of a house, denouncing the Spaniards as robbers and murderers and declared that they should no longer impose on their chief, by holding him as a prisoner. His words so enraged Baltaserde Gallagas, that he cut the warrior in twain with one sweep of his broad sword. At the sight of their slain warrior, the Choctaws, with their defiant war-whoop, at once rushed upon De Soto and his men. De Soto, placing himself at the head of his men, fighting and retreating, slowly made his way out of the town into the plain; and continued to retreat until he had reached a considerable distance upon the plain. In the mean time the troopers rushed to secure their horses, which had been tied outside of the walls. The Choctaws at once knocked the chains from the hands and feet of the Indian prisoners whom De Soto had brought with him, giving them weapons bade them help destroy the perfidious strangers. In the first rush the Choctaws killed five of the Spaniards, who had good fortune in dense masses before the gate. At that moment, De Soto with his cavalry, closely followed by his infantry, made a fearful charge upon the disordered mass of the Choctaws, who were still on the outside of the enclosures, and with a terrible slaughter drove them back into the town. Immediately the Choctaws rushed to the port-holes and towers, and hurled clouds of arrows and spears upon the Spaniards, and again drove them from the walls. Seeing the Spaniards again retreat, again the Choctaws rushed through the gate and fearlessly attacked the Spaniards fighting them hand to hand and face to face. Three long hours did the battle rage, the Spaniards now retreating, then the Choctaws. Like a spectre De Soto seemed every where hewing down on the right and left, as if his arm could never tire. That sword, which had been so often stained with the blood of the South American, was now red with that of the North American, a still braver race. Above the mighty din was heard the voice of Tush ka Lusa encouraging his warriors; his tomahawk, wielded by his muscular arm, ascended and descended in rapid strokes, like a meteor across a starry sky. But could the feeble bow and arrow and the tomahawk avail against the hug e lance and broad-sword? What the unprotected body of the Choctaw warrior against the steel clad body of the Spanish soldier? At the enclosure of their town, closing the gates after them; and at the same time the Spaniards made a desperate charge against the gates and walls, but were met with showers of arrows and other missiles. But the infantry, protected by their bucklers, soon hewed the gates to pieces with their battle-axes, and rushed into the town, while the cavalry remained on the outside to cut to pieces all who might attempt to escape. Then began a carnage too awful to relate. The Choctaws fought in the streets, in the square, from the house top, and walls; and though the ground was covered with their dead and dying relatives and friends, still no living one entreated for quarter. Hotter and hotter, and more bloody waxed the desperate conflict. Often the Choctaws drove the Spaniards out of the town, but to see them return again with demoniac fury. To such a crisis had the battle now arrived, that there could be no idle spectators; and now were seen women and girls contending side by side with the husbands, fathers and brothers, and fearlessly sharing in the dangers and in the indiscriminate slaughter. At length the houses were setson fire, and the wind blew the smoke and flames in all directions adding horror to the scene. The flames ascended in mighty volumes. The din of strife began to grow fainter. The sun weut down, seemingly to rejoice in withdrawing from the sickening was in ruins, and her people slain. For nine long hours had the battle raged. Eighty-two Spaniards were killed and forty-five horses. But alas, the poor Choctaws, who participated in the fight were nearly all slain. Garcellasso asserts that eleven thousand were slain; while the “Portuguese Gentleman” sets the number at twenty five hundred within the town alone. Assuming a point between the two, it is reasonable to conclude that six thousand were killed in and outside of the town. Tushka Lusa perished with his people. After the destruction of Mobila, De Soto remained a few days upon the plains around the smoking town; sending out foraging parties, who found the neighboring villages well stocked with provisions. In all these foraging excursions, females of great beauty were captured, and added to those taken at the close of the battle. On Sunday the 18th of November, 1540, this monster and his fiendish crew took their departure from the smouldering ruins of Mobila, and its brave but murdered inhabitants; and with the poor Mobila girls, at whose misfortunes humanity weeps, resumed their westward march.” Thus the Europeans introduced themselves to the Native Americans nearly four centuries ago as a race of civilized and Christian people, but proving themselves to be a race of fiends utterly void of every principle of virtue the Europeans as a race unknown to civilization and Christianity, yet proving themselves possessed of many virtues that adorn man, together with a spirit of as true and noble patriotism, martyrs upon the altar of liberty, that has never been surpassed. I challenge history to show a nation whose people ever displayed a more heroic courage in defense of their country and homes than did Tushka Lusa and his brave people in defending their town Mama-binah. They exposed their naked breasts to the keen lances and swords of those iron-clad Spaniards with but stone and bone-tipped spears and the feeble bow and arrow, which were but as toy pistols against the deadly Winchester rifle of the present day; and heroically stood face to face with their terrible foes with their frail weapons and disputed every inch of ground, and yielded only when none was left to fight. That they should have killed eighty two of the Spaniards with their feeble weapons is truly astonishing, proving conclusively that had they been on equal footing with the Spaniards, not a Spaniard would have survived to tell the tale of their complete destruction.

Some Biblical thoughts on wealth….

Matthew 5:44

But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;

 

Matthew 11:19

The Son of man came eating and drinking, and they say, Behold a man gluttonous, and a winebibber, a friend of publicans and sinners. But wisdom is justified of her children.

 

John 15:13

Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.

In Context | Full Chapter | Other Translations

John 15:14

Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you.

 

Deuteronomy 8:18Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)

18 But thou shalt remember the Lord thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day.

 

Acts 1:8Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)

But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judæa, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.

 

A good man leaveth an inheritance to his children’s children: and the wealth of the sinner is laid up forthe just.

 

Proverbs 19:4

Wealth maketh many friends; but the poor is separated from his neighbour.

 

Luke 16:9

And I say unto you, Make to yourselves friends of the mammon of unrighteousness; that, when ye fail, they may receive you into everlasting habitations.

 

 

Job 42:10 When Job prayed for his friends, the Lord restored his fortunes. In fact, the Lord gave him twice as much as before!

 

Here’s the way I see these verses:

  1. Jesus came to seek and save the lost, and He loves all people.
  2. When bad (sinful) people do us wrong, we are commanded to forgive and love them.
  3. We must pray for our enemies, because the power of God is what will set them free, and break mind-blinding spirits off of them.
  4. If our personal mission is the great commission, then God gives us power to get wealth, the power of the Holy Spirit.
  5. This power gives us grace to love the unlovable, to literally become friends of sinners like Jesus.
  6. This friendship allows us to receive unrighteous money (Money received through wrong means)
  7. This is the wealth transfer, where the wealth of the sinner stored up for the righteous comes to us.
  8. If we want double for our trouble in dealing with people we know who are not walking with God the way we are, we need to be continually praying for our friends….

Let’s Pray:

‘Father, I see my life is all about love and redemption. Your harvest of souls and disciples in this, my generation. Help me to love, forgive, and honestly pray for those who are not doing right, with honest concern for their best interests, eternal life. As I do this, I trust that You will release to me wealth and finances, to obey you in what You have created me to do, as I daily hear and obey what You have called me to do Lord Jesus, Amen!’

The Friendly Counsel of God – We have friends in High Places!

Jesus over earth

 

The Friendly Counsel of God!

You know, in business you meet some really great people sometimes, people of honor, integrity, excellence, and great wisdom from life experience. Along the way, I made decisions to try and include these folks in my life as mentors, respecting their time, yet enjoying the privilege of being able to simply pick up the cell phone and call them for counsel, when I had a decision to make. We are friends, and because they care about me, and want me to succeed, they give me friendly, wise counsel, so I can prosper.

Well, there is One, wiser, richer, more seasoned and powerful than all of them combined, that is God, Creator of Heaven and earth, seated upon the throne, with Jesus at His right hand. Truly, if we know Jesus, we have influential friends in high places, and we are called to walk with them, seated with Christ in heavenly places, as royalty in the courts of our heavenly King!

Today, as I read Job 29:4

‘Just as I was in the days of my youth, when ‘THE FRIENDLY COUNSEL OF GOD WAS OVER MY TENT.’

I am grateful for my wealthy friends, but they are never the source of my wealth. Nope, I endeavour to live a life of holiness and obedience that ever places a smile on the face of Jesus. Living in such a way, that He might see comfort and reward for His great sufferings, doing what I can to encourage Him, as He too sees the horror, tragedy, and mess of this pain wracked earth.

He knows, He loves, He weeps, then He acts, sometimes with brutal intensity in His government, to stop evil, punish predatory people, and to protect and bless His family in the earth.

If I take the time to get to know Him, He gives me wonderful, friendly counsel…

He did it again tonight, at a moment when my emotions threatened to cause me to make some brutal decisions, decisions that would have been wrong for my life. He came, He spoke, He brought comfort, He again revealed His glory, and showed me that I was placing a smile upon His face.

I don’t know what you are going through today, but if you love Jesus, He will go through it with you, and will never leave you in the fight, and if you ask Him, He will always make a way, even where there appears to be no way.

Is it not written?

1 Corinthians 10:13Amplified Bible (AMP)

13 No temptation [regardless of its source] has overtaken or enticed you that is not common to human experience [nor is any temptation unusual or beyond human resistance]; but God is faithful [to His word—He is compassionate and trustworthy], and He will not let you be tempted beyond your ability [to resist], but along with the temptation He [has in the past and is now and] will [always] provide the way out as well, so that you will be able to endure it [without yielding, and will overcome temptation with joy].

Listen, as He speaks to your heart today

John 10:27(NIV)

27 My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me.

I am totally committed to fully obeying Him alone, no matter what people do, or don’t do to me or for me.

voice

Let’s pray:

‘Father, I come into Your courts today, with thanksgiving, praise, and worship determined to honor You and who You are to me. Thank you for the privilege of Your counsel, comfort, wealth, provision, and direction today. May I live today, to put a smile on Your face Lord Jesus. Amen’

The Heart of a Curse!

The Heart of a Curse!

The Heart of a Curse…

Galatians 3:13The Message (MSG)

13-14 Christ redeemed us from that self-defeating, cursed life by absorbing it completely into himself. Do you remember the Scripture that says, “Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree”? That is what happened when Jesus was nailed to the cross: He became a curse, and at the same time dissolved the curse. And now, because of that, the air is cleared and we can see that Abraham’s blessing is present and available for non-Jews, too. We are all able to receive God’s life, his Spirit, in and with us by believing—just the way Abraham received it.

2 Cor 5:20 (Phillips)For if a man is in Christ he becomes a new person altogether—the past is finished and gone, everything has become fresh and new.

This is our positional truth, that we behold and marvel upon as we understand our new birth, and adoption into God’s family as His child!

Yet, even as a Christian, there can be cycles of defeat, despair, that seem to helplessly continue in our families and children. This, theologians have identified as a ‘generational curse’.

Yet, we are redeemed from every curse!

So why do certain bad things continue to happen? Cycles of addiction, defeat, abuse, brokenness in yea even, Christian homes?

Let’s take a look at a couple of Scriptures: Joh 7:24 Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment. Mt 7:1 Judge not, that ye be not judged. 2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.

Mr 11:26 But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive your trespasses. forgive prisoner

The kingdom of God, is a kingdom of love. It is also a kingdom of truth.

We are called to love people, to overcome evil with good, and to: Mt 5:44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; Lu 6:28 Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you. Ro 12:14 Bless them which persecute you: bless, and curse not.

Ever had a series of bad things seem to keep happening in your life, a seemingly unending cycle of heartache, betrayal, and bad things?

Seems that as soon as you begin to get over the last heartbreak, bad relationship, or betrayal, another one looms on the horizon of time…. Makes you want to give up in hopelessness…

HOW A CURSE WORKS

This is a curse, and here is how it works. When someone does us wrong, it hurts. broken hearted

Heart Wounds:

Just like a regular cut or wound, if a wound in our heart is not cleansed and tended it too, it can become infected. An infection in the heart of man, is called bitterness, and it not only hurts us, in making us cynical, sarcastic, and hateful, but it also poisons the every atmosphere we enter.

Heb 12:15 Looking diligently lest any man fail of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and thereby many be defiled;

So, how do we end the cycle of brutality, and create a better future? You need to see this verse again: Mt 7:1 Judge not, that ye be not judged. 2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. When you refuse to forgive, you judge. When you judge, that which you wished would happen to your enemy, continually happens in your life. Simple, forgive! how forgive You don’t understand! I have a right to be angry! They ripped me off, (or in many cases, performed much worse atrocities than that!) I did not say you couldn’t, or shouldn’t be angry, but I did say you MUST forgive! unforgiveness

It is a command of God, not a suggestion!

You have a right to be angry, but you do not have a right to judge them, or hold a grudge, and become bitter. Let me make it plain. You have a right to forgive. You have a covenant right to be healed from what they did. You do not have a right to unforgiveness, bitterness, and judgment. In fact, this law of God, of judgment, is what will keep you in your cycle of defeat and betrayal, as you baste in your bitterness. listen anger coal The Bible is the Word of God, eternally established before the throne of God, in the heavens, it is eternal law. Now reread these words of Jesus, in light of this: Mt 7:1 Judge not, that ye be not judged. 2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.

When we judge, we are judged!

The judgment, is simple: “what goes around, comes around.” The exact same thing that we judge others for, we get judged for, and it opens the door for the cycle of destruction in our lives again. Ugh! We can forgive, heal, love, and go free, and discover that: Pr 26:2 As the bird by wandering, as the swallow by flying, so the curse causeless shall not come,

Or

we go around the mountain one more time….

I believe you will forgive. As you do, I would like to pray for you:

I command, all the horrible things that have kept happening in your life, now stop! In the name, power, and authority, of the Lord Jesus Christ,  it has become your time to heal, and walk in a brighter, more glorious life and future!

Let’s pray together: ‘Father, You know, You see, and You have seen what has been done to me, and what I have done. Forgive me, for my judgment, hatred, bitterness, and for taking offense. I declare right now, before Your throne, that I forgive! Every time I think of what has been done to me, I will stand upon these words, I forgive. Now Father, heal me, restore what has been stolen, lost, broken, betrayed, and shattered, in my life, and the life of my family, for You alone are big enough to do it. In Your name I pray this Lord Jesus, Amen!’
