Mining for Gold!

Mining for Gold!
bull dozing
I have an uncle in Northern Canada (Whitehorse, Yukon) that is a heavy equipment mechanic, and a gold miner in the summer. From what I understand, over the past couple of hundred years, prospectors have panned most of the creeks to retrieve nuggets and easily recovered gold deposits, but there is still much gold in the north. In order to retrieve it though, one must move tons of earth, and run it through huge sluice boxes, that separate the dirt from the gold. Since the price of gold is so high currently, it is worth the time to fly bulldozers and earth-moving equipment, deep into the bush, to carve into the gold rich soils. Fortunes have been made in doing this.

Well, I am mining a different type of gold, the more precious gold of spiritual revelation and truth, eternal in its worth and consequence.

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.

Recently, I saw a Bibliography in the back of one of the ‘Go get em’ motivational business books I had just read, and I decided to photocopy it, and to deliberately read these books, at a rate of two per week. Compared to study of the Word of God, I find them light reading, and I have been able to blaze through many of these books, quickly.

What I am looking for, is revelation, truth, principals of motivation, leadership, and success that are applicable to raising up the strong end time Christian ministries, I am called to develop.

As I was reading a classic entitled: ‘As a Man Thinketh, by James Allen’, I came across the following excerpt that jumped out at me, and I hope it blesses you:

All that a man achieves or all that he fails to achieve is a result of his own thoughts. In a justly ordered universe, where loss of equipose would mean total destruction, individual responsibility must be absolute. A man’s weakness and strength, purity and impurity, are his own, and not another man’s: they are brought about by himself, never by another. His condition is also his own, and not another man’s. His suffering and his happiness are evolved from within. As he thinks, so he is; as he continues to think, so he remains.
A strong man cannot help a weaker unless the weaker is willing to be helped, and even then the weak man must become strong of himself; he must, by his own efforts, develop the strength which he admires in another. None but himself, can alter his condition. Pages 45,46.

As I thought about this, I had several Scriptures flash across my mind, for your consideration and meditation:

Pr 23:7 For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he:

doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;

De 31:6 Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the LORD thy God, he it is that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.

Isa 35:4 Say to them that are of a fearful heart, Be strong, fear not: behold, your God will come with vengeance, even God with a recompence; he will come and save you.

Joe 3:10 Beat your plowshares into swords, and your pruninghooks into spears: let the weak say, I am strong.

Ro 15:1 We then that are strong ought to bear the infirmities of the weak, and not to please ourselves.

1Co 9:22 To the weak became I as weak, that I might gain the weak: I am made all things to all men, that I might by all means save some.

2Co 13:9 For we are glad, when we are weak, and ye are strong: and this also we wish, even your perfection.

individual responsibility

As I read an article entitled ‘Individual Responsibility before God” I read:

“The practical outcome of this for Christians everywhere was twofold: on the one hand, they were freed from the tyranny, superstition, and oppression of Rome; but on the other hand, with freedom came individual responsibility before God. No longer could the individual Christian rely simply on his membership in the physical organization of a church for the salvation of his soul; to a large degree, it now devolved upon him. Salvation was not something one was physically born into because one’s parents were Christian or because one had received “infant baptism” and made a member of the church before he could even understand what he was doing; but salvation was something spiritual which one had to enter into as the result of a conscience decision he alone had made.
“No longer could anyone else decide this matter for the individual – not one’s mother or father; not one’s priest or bishop; not one’s pastor or elder – it was an individual decision for which the individual alone was responsible. From this point on, no human intermediary could stand between God and man: man now stood naked and alone before his Maker. The frightening words of the Apostle Paul loomed heavily over his head: “Wherefore, my beloved … work out your own salvation with fear and trembling!” (Phil. 2:12)

“Heaven or Hell? – it was his choice! Remaining an “infant in the Lord” or growing up into full Christian maturity? – it was his choice. Being obedient or disobedient? – it was his choice!

“The church could assist by providing the Christian with a nurturing and Biblically-based environment which was conducive to growth in the Spirit; and other Christians could help in their fellowship and friendships – but even here, the individual had to make a conscience decision to avail himself of these “helps.” There was no way other Christians and/or the church could force themselves on the individual and decide for him. In the end, he alone was responsible, and he alone would have to answer for his decisions.”

This thought is why Paul had us ‘press towards the mark of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
press run
Jas 4:8 Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded.

2 Tim 2:19 ¶ Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity.
20 But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honour, and some to dishonour.
21 If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master’s use, and prepared unto every good work.
stand for right
Each of us, will stand before God, alone, to give an account of our lives, personally. Not only for what we did, but I am convinced also, for what we should have done, had we fully obeyed Jesus in our generation.

As I read through these ‘Go get em’ motivational books, I find a blend of Biblical principals (which always bring true success), and humanism, where it seems as if the works of men, will add to the power of God.

While it is true, that works of faith, performed in obedience to the Holy Spirit, will produce tremendous results in both this world and the next, works of man, done according to Biblical principals, may allow a person to amass great wealth in this life, but without eternal reward. God honored His Word in the person’s life, yet the man may or may not have done with the fruits of his labor what God intended, hoarding up for himself the blessings of God, without concern for the gospel,and the needs of humanity. The blessings remain temporal, rather than eternal, and are no indication of that mans true state before a holy God…

So, I exhort you:
Matt 6:33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

seek

I believe, that in this hour, the regular schedule and business of life will not suffice.

Heb 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

‘God is calling a people to Himself, and is wanting to be sought out, for His plans, purposes and pursuits in this generation.’ quote from Kenneth E. Hagin
leading of Holy SPirit

I exhort you to deliberately carve time out of your busy schedule, even if it means skipping a couple hours of sleep each morning, to spend time in the Word, in prayer, in praying in other tongues, in worship, seeking His face, until He speaks to you specifically and clearly about your particular giftings and callings. Your appointment in this life…

1Th 5:9 For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,

Let’s pray:
‘Father, help me to discipline myself to deliberately seek you, in prayer, praise and Your Word, daily. Speak to me today, and correct me, and redirect me, where I have gone astray. Meet with me Pappa God, and meet the deepest hungers in my heart with your love and truth that makes me free, as I honor and serve You Lord Jesus, free indeed! Amen!’

The Problems We Have When God Shows Up!

As I read this passage from the account of the earthly ministry of Jesus, we see our Heavenly Father show up:

transfiguration

Mark 9. 5 And Peter answered and said to Jesus, Master, it is good for us to be here: and let us make three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias.

Interesting reading today.

Seems Peter, James and John, got to see Jesus transfigured, and meeting with Elijah and Moses on top of the mountain.

We Jesus literally fulfilling the law and the prophets, with Moses (the lawgiver) and Elijah (school of the prophets) present.

Yet, like we do often, we interpret the presence of God to mean what we think it ought to mean, based upon our limited understanding of the kingdom, and if we are not humble, and truly seeking truth, we miss it.

In this passage in Mark 5:

And there was a cloud that overshadowed them: and a voice came out of the cloud, saying, This is my beloved Son: hear him.

Jesus is still speaking, and if we listen and obey, we will not only have revelation, but correct interpretation and application of what He wants done, when we slow down!

And suddenly, when they had looked round about, they saw no man any more, save Jesus only with themselves.

And as they came down from the mountain, he charged them that they should tell no man what things they had seen, till the Son of man were risen from the dead.

10 And they kept that saying with themselves, questioning one with another what the rising from the dead should mean.

They saw Jesus accurately, meeting with Moses and Elijah in fulfillment of the law and the prophets, but there was a sovereign plan of heaven being unfurled, that they did not yet understand. Like most of us, they wanted to camp right there, in the revelation of that experience, but God is not just in the experience – He has the salvation of humanity being worked out in our lives.

The problem is usually not with the revelation we receive, rather the interpretation and implementation.

How often I have run, instead of waiting for clarification as to How God wanted something done, and erred in my zeal, my interpretation. His timing…
stress

Let’s Pray:
‘Father, continue to speak to us, grant us vision, revelation, Your presence. As you do, may we slow down long enough to get fuller understanding to interpret and apply that which you show us. In your name I pray Lord Jesus, Amen’

Revelation vs Intellect

Revelation vs Intellect

revelation

Sometimes things said in the heat of passion, need to meet the cold hard light of reality. Actions produce reactions, truth has consequences, and then one is left with the question: What is God saying about this? In the quietness of solitude, His voice gently breaks upon our heart, and confirms what we knew all along, but had not thought through yet, and our correct response needs to be like Mary, “be unto your servant according to your word, O Lord.”, for the natural mind cannot really comprehend, when God speaks outside of the box. Yet, with our heart, we know Him, and we can believe, and ponder those things in our heart, and gently watch as He brings them to pass.. This is where faith meets the intimacy of the Holy Spirit, and deep calls unto deep, as He reveals things above and beyond what we can ask or think.

Yesterday, we were faced with the fact that everything we owned had been vandalized or stolen. Yet, today, I have heard His voice, and know what steps to take next.

Today, I pray we hear His voice. Though we may be facing circumstances that look insane to our natural minds, there is a God far above it all, well able to make life happen.

Let’s Pray:

‘Father, speak to me. Cause me to hear Your voice, your direction, your purpose for my life. Bring me Your peace, in my particular storm, and make a way, where there seems to be no way. In Your name I pray Lord Jesus, Amen.’

The Third voice

 

There is the voice of God, the Holy Spirit, where He speaks to people as only He can. His children hear, obey, and proclaim what He speaks, and He backs up His Word with mighty acts from heaven.

 

Satan knows this well, so he must destroy the Word, the person, or the credibility of the person who has authentically heard God.

 

In Eve’s life, the serpant came to the woman, and said, ‘Has God really said?”

satan liar

Immediately, the enemy caused the woman to doubt, to question her husband, and her husbands clear command from the Lord.

 

The rest is history. She ate of the fruit. She talked her husband into eating of the fruit, and he chose to listen to his wife instead of God. Therein is wisdom husbands, know when to listen to your wife, and when to say, NO, as for me and my house, we shall serve the LORD!

 

Well, humanity was plunged into darkness that day, and we have all be born into, and born out of Adam’s sin by the blood of Jesus.

 

Yet, like Adam, our life is designed to affect multitudes for good, for the kingdom of God. As we grow in the Word of God, and learn to hear clearly the voice of God, and to search the Scriptures to ensure we are hearing accurately, there comes kairos moments in the life of a man or a woman of God, where God reveals Himself in glory, and we know, but we know what we must do.

 

Then comes the test of time, as the onslaught of hell and hellish circumstances threaten to overwhelm the loving heart trying to honestly obey God. Satan screams to the mind and the emotions, the same old lie, ‘Has God really said?’, then brings his regular arsenal of weapons to bear on the holy life, and pure heart. His ABC’s are accusation, blame and criticism, and his whispering campaign begins in the lives of those around us. Gentle insinuations, allegations, innuendoes, designed to malign the character of the saint trying to obey God.

 

Like Adam, multitudes depend upon our obedience to God, and purity of heart, our courage to uncompromisingly obey. Satan knows this, and as we press into Jesus and His Word, he begins to speak to others around us, to try and subvert the clarity of the call, with worldly wisdom, and the counsel of religious men. Their counsel sounds so wise, so Biblical, yet our heart screams!

satan

There are so many examples in the Scripture where the multitudes were saying one thing, claiming it to be God, where God was speaking the opposite. Micaiah in 2 Chron 18, and 1 Kings 22, actually had a clear revelation of the throne of God, and spoke a pure word from God, and got hit and persecuted for it, when 400 supposed prophets of God spoke the exact opposite (1 Chon 18:5).

 

So it has been my experience over the years. God speaks to an individual, and if we are lucky, to the other key people involved in what He has called us to do, then for whatever reason, many good Christian people, are left in the dark. They try to reason what I have heard through the Scriptures, but is they are wise, they say, “Unless the Lord reveal it to me, I have no way to judge what has been said.”.

 

Most though, are not humble enough of heart to take this stance, so they join the 400 false prophets, and declare Scriptures, and proclaim ‘Thus saith the Lord!” when He has not spoken.

 

I am slowly learning, to not cast my pearls before swine, and to reveal what God has told me, no matter how passionately it was spoken me of heaven, unless He shows me to reveal it.

swine

My biggest error over the years, has been talking to much. Sharing precious revelations from the Lord, that were for me, or a select few I was called to walk with during different seasons of my life and ministry.

 

I heard Mike Murdoch make the statement, ‘All godly relationships are destroyed by the counsel of a third voice.’, and he went on to explain how godly people’s lives are destroyed by counsel of one usually close to us. One who often cares deeply about us, but who has not heard God, nor understood fully the direction God has us to walk.

 

Remember Peter and Jesus? Peter had just experienced an authentic revelation from heaven that Jesus was the Son of God, the Messiah. Jesus praised Him, then went on to explain to Peter a difficult thing that must come to pass in His life. He told his disciples to keep secret who He was for a season and look what happened.

 

Matt 16: 20 Then charged he his disciples that they should tell no man that he was Jesus the Christ.

21 ¶ From that time forth began Jesus to shew unto his disciples, how that he must go unto Jerusalem, and suffer many things of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised again the third day.

22 Then Peter took him, and began to rebuke him, saying, Be it far from thee, Lord: this shall not be unto thee.

 

Peter loved Jesus, and wished Him no harm. He wanted to protect His master from pain, yet look at Jesus response.

 

23 But he turned, and said unto Peter, Get thee behind me, Satan: thou art an offence unto me: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but those that be of men.

 

Jesus rebuked Peter, and determined to obey His Father, and head for the cross.

 

So it has been with often good friendships and sometimes even family relationships from people who honestly love me and want to protect me from pain and hardship.

 

Chris, don’t do that, you’ll lose everything you have worked for.

 

Were they right? In a sense, yes. I laid down my education, my career, my athletic career, and every earthly desire to follow Jesus, to the ends of the earth.

 

These people were not evil people, many of them were Christians who honestly cared for me, but they did not know nor understand what the Spirit of God was saying to me, and I had to go and embrace my own personal cross, in obedience to Him.

 

Look at Paul in Acts. God had told him to go preach in Jerusalem, and a prophet Agabus, confronted him with the hardships he would face there.

Paul shipwrecked

Ac 19:21 After these things were ended, Paul purposed in the spirit, when he had passed through Macedonia and Achaia, to go to Jerusalem, saying, After I have been there, I must also see Rome.

Ac 20:16 For Paul had determined to sail by Ephesus, because he would not spend the time in Asia: for he hasted, if it were possible for him, to be at Jerusalem the day of Pentecost.

Ac 20:22 And now, behold, I go bound in the spirit unto Jerusalem, not knowing the things that shall befall me there:

Ac 21:4 And finding disciples, we tarried there seven days: who said to Paul through the Spirit, that he should not go up to Jerusalem.

Ac 21:11 And when he was come unto us, he took Paul’s girdle, and bound his own hands and feet, and said, Thus saith the Holy Ghost, So shall the Jews at Jerusalem bind the man that owneth this girdle, and shall deliver him into the hands of the Gentiles.

Ac 21:12 And when we heard these things, both we, and they of that place, besought him not to go up to Jerusalem.

Ac 21:13 Then Paul answered, What mean ye to weep and to break mine heart? for I am ready not to be bound only, but also to die at Jerusalem for the name of the Lord Jesus.

 

Interesting thought in the life of Paul! I believe Paul heard God to go to Jerusalem, and was on His way. In Acts 21, the Holy Ghost sent disciples to warn Paul not to go to Jerusalem, yet Paul determined to go anyway. Did he miss God here? I don’t think so, and here’s why I believe that. Paul continues on, and Agabus the prophet confronts Paul and shows him what pain will welcome him in Jerusalem, but here Paul’s response:

Ac 21:13 Then Paul answered, What mean ye to weep and to break mine heart? for I am ready not to be bound only, but also to die at Jerusalem for the name of the Lord Jesus.

The prophet was right. Paul was bound, beaten, imprisoned, shipwrecked, yet testified in both Jerusalem and Rome, that the whole earth might hear the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Paul NT

Obviously God thought much of Paul’s life, allowing much of the New Testament to be written by him, and according to Jesse Duplantis in his trip to heaven, accorded a place among the 12 apostles of the Lamb in heaven.

 

So it is with me. I am in a difficult season of life, transitioning again at divine command, again seeing the multitudes, and being moved with compassion towards the nations.

 

All of what I have described here has happened or is happening in my life, yet my face is set like flint upon the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. It is a time of radical intimacy with Jesus through the Holy Spirit, and a time of great consternation for those close friends around me, who know me, care about me, and yet do not have the revelation from heaven I have been given specifically for me to obey personally. His love is a radical thing, and heaven is real! Like Jesus, like Paul, I must press forward in the call of God, no matter how persecuted, misunderstood, or misrepresented others have been to me. In light of eternity, only one thing matters: “Did you do what I asked you to do?”

need1

Takes courage, but my prayer for you is the same as for me.

 

“Father, show me your perfect will for my life, without compromise, and give me the courage to obey it, no matter the cost. Amen”

Revelation Road

Revelation Road..

Job 32:7 NLT“I am young and you are old,
so I held back from telling you what I think.
I thought, ‘Those who are older should speak,
for wisdom comes with age.’
But there is a spirit[d] within people,
the breath of the Almighty within them,
that makes them intelligent.

Job 32:CEVI once believed age
was the source of wisdom;
now I truly realize
wisdom comes from God.
Age is no guarantee of wisdom
and understanding.

I am stuck on these verses today. As I study, and try to learn more, to help people, I’m brought back to the feet of Jesus.

Why?

Because I know that revelation beats study, and all my hard work in life will amount to nothing, if God is not in it.

strength justice

He knows more, and can do more in a second, than I can do in a lifetime.

Jeremiah 33:3 (Good News)

Call to me, and I will answer you; I will tell you wonderful and marvelous things that you know nothing about.

So again, I find myself keeping the morning watch before heaven, seeking Jesus…

One Word from God can change anything. One divine download of revelation can be greater than years and years of study.

One act of His power, greater than a lifetime of labor….

He is the way, and His way is revelation road, where we walk and talk with Him, and fully trust His voice, His leading, His wisdom to grant us understanding far beyond our years…

obey seek first

Let’s do this again this morning:

‘Father, I call unto You, that You might show me great and mighty things that I know not of. Breath into my spirit, Your life, Your strength, Your voice, that can take that which is weary, worn, and dull, and make it again fresh, alive, and with answers for this generation. I ask, knowing I am heard, for I ask in Your name Lord Jesus, Amen’

Hear God – Even if you are in trouble!

Revelation brings persecution!

possible not easy

Heb 10: 32  But call to remembrance the former days, in which, after ye were illuminated, ye endured a great fight of afflictions;

Mr 4:17  And have no root in themselves, and so endure but for a time: afterward, when affliction or persecution ariseth for the word’s sake, immediately they are offended.

2Co 12:7  And lest I should be exalted above measure through the abundance of the revelations, there was given to me a thorn in the flesh, the messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I should be exalted above measure.

When you honestly hear God, Satan will oppose you. The very direction, illumination, and revelation you have been seeking God for, when granted, brings Satan on the scene.

Why?

Containment.

If he can’t take the Word from you, he will try and shake it from you, and he does this to stop the work of God in the earth.  You cannot judge what you hear from God by your circumstances, or the voices of other people, but must judge what you hear by the Holy Spirit, and the Word of God.

Jesus said: Joh 16:33  These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

faith John 16-33

The apostles knew this, and taught it to the early church, clearly:

Ac 14:22  Confirming the souls of the disciples, and exhorting them to continue in the faith, and that we must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God.

You will have victory in this life, when you believe God, and walk out what He is telling you, but it is not always a walk of ease. There can be intense hardship, affliction, and persecution for following Jesus, to try to get you off of your heavenly mandate and vision.

1Jo 5:4  For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.

faith stand

Your belief will see you through, and you will become stronger than your trial, as you obey God.

1Co 15:57  But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

If you are in a trial of your faith now, know that you are not alone. All of us that have stepped out in faith have experienced challenges, sometimes very, very severely. Yet, God did not bring the trial, He loves us, and is a good God. He will give you overwhelming, supernatural power and grace to not only go through it, but to explode out the other side in total victory, not just a winner, a conquerer, but more than a conquerer in Him. Keep on walking friend, you are not alone warrior, history making and nation shaking is our duty and responsibility, let’s walk through it in JOY!

33  Partly, whilst ye were made a gazingstock both by reproaches and afflictions; and partly, whilst ye became companions of them that were so used.

Had a group of businessmen that I had led to the Lord buy me a plaque, that read, ‘He is no fool, that gives up what he cannot keep, to gain that which he can never lose!”

It is a statement made by a missionary named Jim Elliot, who was killed for trying to share the gospel with an unreached Indian tribe in South America.

In the eyes of the world, we may look like fools, laughingstocks to people who have no understanding of who we are and what we do. Yet our testimony is making headlines in heaven! What we are doing has eternal weight and consequence!

34  For ye had compassion of me in my bonds, and took joyfully the spoiling of your goods, knowing in yourselves that ye have in heaven a better and an enduring substance.

These Christians loved Paul, their minister, when everyone else wanted him imprisoned or killed. It cost them their stuff, the joyful spoiling of their goods, yet they saw their lives through heavens eyes.

35  Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompence of reward.

The word Confidence here, is the same word translated in other verses as Boldness. Live boldly for Jesus, and do not back down on what He has told you.

36  For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise.

37  For yet a little while, and he that shall come will come, and will not tarry.

Who is He? Jesus! King of kings, Lord of Lords, king of glory! When He shows up on the scene, you trial ends, with His power and glory displayed!

faith king

38  Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him.

What we believe keeps us alive! No matter what the circumstances are screaming, believe, and continue walking forward! You are putting a smile on God’s face as you do, and with all the heartache and evil in the world, that alone should be enough to encourage you. He has been good to us, let’s give Him pleasure!

39  But we are not of them who draw back unto perdition; but of them that believe to the saving of the soul.

You are going to make it! Jesus is with you, and I am praying for you! You are not alone, but have heaven on it’s feet, the great cloud of witnesses, cheering you on! Don’t let up, shut up, nor put up with compromise! WHATEVER HE SAYS, DO IT!

faith voice

We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore speak;
Jesus knows, He sees, He feels, and He understands!
He loves you! Even if you feel you cannot see Him:
faith believe sunrise

Is 63:9  In all their affliction he was afflicted, and the angel of his presence saved them: in his love and in his pity he redeemed them; and he bare them, and carried them all the days of old.

Heb 4:15  For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.

Jesus knows! Jesus cares! He knows what you are going through, and these verses declare that He is in it with you! He will never leave you nor forsake you, and has given you Holy Spirit and angels to get you through.

Ro 8:26  Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.

When you have come to the end of yourself, pray in the Holy Spirit. He will help you, strengthen you, comfort, encourage, direct, and reveal to you what needs to be done. Jesus loves you, and so do I, you are not alone….

Is 64:1 ¶  Oh that thou wouldest rend the heavens, that thou wouldest come down, that the mountains might flow down at thy presence,

2  As when the melting fire burneth, the fire causeth the waters to boil, to make thy name known to thine adversaries, that the nations may tremble at thy presence!

3  When thou didst terrible things which we looked not for, thou camest down, the mountains flowed down at thy presence.

4  For since the beginning of the world men have not heard, nor perceived by the ear, neither hath the eye seen, O God, beside thee, what he hath prepared for him that waiteth for him.

This is the cry of my heart these days. I was in a meeting once, in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, at a conference in the revival there, at Toronto Airport Christian Fellowship. Worship had been deep and rich, and there was an incredible presence of God in the air, as the man of God came to the pulpit to preach. Then, it happened: God moved. The minister was knocked to the floor, and like a wave, so were the 5000 people present in the meeting. We laid on the floor, some under chairs, for over an hour, the only sound being the occasional deep sobbing and weeping of God’s people as He ministered. There was a tremendous fear of the Lord in the place. God showed up, not in some Holy Ghost giftings, and goose bumps, but in His power, majesty and glory, and no man could stand to minister, nor speak for that matter.

This is my cry for the church here in the United States, and for America. That God show up, and reveal again His power, majesty, holiness, and glory, to this generation. For this I am pressing in, the hope of the nations, the only hope for this nation….Jesus is Lord!

Yet, even after the manifest presence and glory of God is revealed, we must still walk by faith:

Hebrews 11:6 [Full Chapter]

But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

Matthew 13:21

yet hath he not root in himself, but dureth for a while: for when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the word, by and by he is offended

Rev dim light

Seems that in the glory of God, God speaks clearly. When He does, He expects us to believe what He says, to the exclusion of every other voice and circumstance. His passion is to be believed and trusted…this is a way we can put a smile on His face!

When we actually believe that He has not only spoken to us, but that despite the often incredibly contrary circumstances, He, Almighty Creator of Heaven and Earth is both willing and able to bring to pass exactly what He said He would….

This, and distractions are the main reasons the works of Jesus do not fully happen in the earth…

He is developing us, for eternal rank and privilege, and this life becomes a training ground for this process, as we learn to live and walk by faith!

Romans 8:29 (King James)

29 For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.

He loves us! Holy Spirit will both bring to our remembrance things He has already told us to do, and will show us things to come…

Yet, His name is ‘I AM’, the one who will never leave nor forsake us, and NOW, faith is.

He has opened doors for you and I:

John 10:3

To him the porter openeth; and the sheep hear his voice: and he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out

13 A temptation has not seized you except what is common-to-humanity. And God is faithful, Who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but also with the temptation will make the way-out, that you may be able to endure

 

Even now, as we seek Him in His Word, He speaks, He leads, He reveals, and He guides…

 

Acts 22:14

And he said, The God of our fathers hath chosen thee, that thou shouldest know his will, and see that Just One, and shouldest hear the voice of his mouth

 

voice

 

Hebrews 3:7

Wherefore (as the Holy Ghost saith, To day if ye will hear his voice,

 

Hebrews 4:7

again, he limiteth a certain day, saying in David, To day, after so long a time; as it is said, To day if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts.

 

 

Revelation 21:3

And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.

 

We are called to bring Heaven to earth, by His Word and our obedience to His Spirit.

 

There are always people on the other side of our obedience, people who are good works for us, prepared from before the foundation of the world, for His glory.

 

Yesterdays tragedies, failures, or victories are but memories and instruction points: we learn from them, but today is the day of salvation, and NOW faith is what is required.

 

Today is a great day to obey God, a great day for your miracle, a great day to work miracles in the lives of those He has called you to serve!

 

Let’s Pray:

 

‘Father, Today, I would obey You! Today, I release my faith in You for direction, breakthroughs, wisdom, the hearing afresh and anew, Your voice. I expect You to use me and flow through me today to promote Your kingdom and Your glory, for I come before Your throne, knowing I am loved, heard, and answered, for I have come in Your mighty and matchless name Lord Jesus, Amen!’

Give in faith!

1 Corinthians 9:11 If we have sown [the seed of] spiritual good among you, [is it too] much if we reap from your material benefits?

1 Corinthians 9:14 [On the same principle] the Lord directed that those who publish the good news (the Gospel) should live (get their maintenance) by the Gospel.

Paul goes on to say, that he did not use his position as a minister of the gospel to take up offerings, rather he worked, making tents, to support himself. You might notice here, that Paul was not married, nor did he have children. Family responsibilities take time, and just as you bust a move on your job to provide for your family, I work every bit as hard, doing this, faithful to the Lord in prayer and the ministry of His Word, to you.

I will never charge for this: it my responsibility to God, my calling. Freely I have been given, now, I freely give…

 

As you give, hear Holy Spirit what to give, and honestly expect God to reward you for your giving.

Matt 10: 41 He who receives and welcomes and accepts a prophet because he is a prophet shall receive a prophet’s reward, and he who receives and welcomes and accepts a righteous man because he is a righteous man shall receive a righteous man’s reward. 42 And whoever gives to one of these little ones [in rank or influence] even a cup of cold water because he is My disciple, surely I declare to you, he shall not lose his reward.

I have ‘see through’ faith for you, in this: Gal 3: 9 So then they which be of faith are blessed with faithful Abraham.

I believe I have a responsibility before God to be like Jesus, in every offering I receive. I receive it with thanksgiving, just like Jesus did the little boys lunch.

Then, because I walk and live by faith according to the blessing of Abraham, I believe that God will take your seed sown, and multiply it, according to what the blessing of Abraham promises:

Genesis 22:17 In blessing I will bless you and in multiplying I will multiply your descendants like the stars of the heavens and like the sand on the seashore. And your Seed (Heir) will possess the gate of His enemies

It has been a joy to me, to see the hand of the living God act in the lives of those of you who have supported us this year!

Many have seen tremendous blessing come into your households, and for this we give thanks, and give Jesus all the glory!

Seven That Ways God Speaks to You: Part 7 – Prophesy!

Seven That Ways God Speaks to You:

Prophecy

prophecy message

God leads through prophecy!

2Ki 8:1 Then spake Elisha unto the woman, whose son he had restored to life, saying, Arise, and go thou and thine household, and sojourn wheresoever thou canst sojourn: for the LORD hath called for a famine; and it shall also come upon the land seven years.

Notice here, that if this Shunnamite woman, had not listened to the prophet of God here, great hardship would have come upon her family in the famine that was about to hit the earth.

Num 11:27 And there ran a young man, and told Moses, and said, Eldad and Medad do prophesy in the camp.
28 And Joshua the son of Nun, the servant of Moses, one of his young men, answered and said, My lord Moses, forbid them.
29 And Moses said unto him, Enviest thou for my sake? would God that all the LORD’S people were prophets, and that the LORD would put his spirit upon them!

prophecy speaks through prophets

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

1Co 13:9 For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.

Prophecy can reveal mysteries, and unlock revelation that will allow us to enter areas previously closed to us.

prophecy key

Isaiah 22:22

And the key of the house of David will I lay upon his shoulder; so he shall open, and none shall shut; and he shall shut, and none shall open
And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth;
Woe unto you, lawyers! for ye have taken away the key of knowledge: ye entered not in yourselves, and them that were entering in ye hindered.
Prophetic words, cannot provide keys of knowledge, that unlock doors in the realm of the Spirit, and in the earth.

Ac 11:28 And there stood up one of them named Agabus, and signified by the Spirit that there should be great dearth throughout all the world: which came to pass in the days of Claudius Caesar.

There are many books written on prophecy, but know this: prophets and prophecy are very much alive in the New Testament!

Basically, prophecy falls into two categories: foretelling, and forthtelling.

prophecy definition

Foretelling is where the Holy Spirit shows us things to come, future events.

John 16:13
Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.

Forthtelling is where a person of God sees or hears into the heavenlies, and knows by the Spirit of God, exactly what God is doing in an individuals life, or in a certain setting, and they tell forth, or utter what the Father is saying or doing at that very moment.

I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me.

Any person can prophesy at some level. Simply telling the story of something Jesus has done in your life, is prophesy. Revelation 19:10 And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.

prophecy testimony

Jesus loves us, and Holy Spirit will speak that love through you and I to encourage people in our day to day lives:

Holy Spirit is called the comforter, and most prophecy, reveals His comfort:

1 Corinthians 14
Follow after charity,(love) and desire spiritual gifts, but rather that ye may prophesy. For he that speaketh in an unknown tongue speaketh not unto men, but unto God: for no man understandeth him; howbeit in the spirit he speaketh mysteries. But he that prophesieth speaketh unto men to edification, and exhortation, and comfort. …
Yet, there are levels of prophesy, that range in depth, insight and authority from simple testimony, to prophecies that will literally cause signs in the heavens:

prophesy sons and daughters

Act 2:18 And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy:
19 And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke:

Any born-again believer can prophesy, but not everyone is called to the five-fold ministry of the New Testament prophet!

Just for the sake of godly order in churches, 1 Corinthians 14:40 Let all things be done decently and in order.
If a prophetic word is given publicly, let it be judged publicly. If a pastor or leader asks you not to prophesy, DON’T DO IT!

They have the responsibility of governing the whole congregation, not just you and your gift. Sometimes, words are given by the Holy Spirit to direct you to pray and intercede over a particular body, discern: Do I say? Do I pray? What I have done over the years, when I do not know leadership and the Lord gives me a word, is to write it down, and quietly give it to them. At that point, they are fully responsible for the Word, not me. I am fully submitted to God’s authority in that church, yet have fully obeyed God in discharging my responsibility to give His Word.
In short, here is my general counsel on prophesy:

1. Love people, and encourage and comfort them with the Word of God.

love people

2. Judge prophetic words you receive from either the Holy Spirit, of from another person of God, by the Scripture.

God should speak to you directly. If a person of God should speak a ‘word from God’ into your life, it should confirm something that God has already spoken to you, and should edify, exhort, and comfort you to obey God.

1Co 14:3 But he that prophesieth speaketh unto men to edification, and exhortation, and comfort.

3. If a prophetic word does not bear witness to you, (https://chrisaomministries.wordpress.com/2014/11/06/seven-that-ways-god-speaks-to-you-part-5/)  nor does it confirm something God has already spoken to you, simply ‘put it on the shelf’. If it is of God, He will bring it to your remembrance at the right time. If it is not of God, don’t worry about it, it will not come to pass.

Refuse to be manipulated, controlled, or led by another person’s prophesy!

Jesus is your Lord, no man or woman of God.

True shepherds lead God’s sheep, not drive them!

prophecy shelf

There are times and seasons in God, and God’s timing is always perfect!

Ecclesiastes 3:11

He hath made every thing beautiful in his time: also he hath set the world in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end.
God may actually be speaking something, but it may be years before He brings it to pass. Timing is everything in the kingdom. Right people, right place and right timing, make for a sucessful life in Jesus!
And he changeth the times and the seasons: he removeth kings, and setteth up kings: he giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding:
And of the children of Issachar, which were men that had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do; the heads of them were two hundred; and all their brethren were at their commandment.
2 Chronicles 20:20 (KJV)20 And they rose early in the morning, and went forth into the wilderness of Tekoa: and as they went forth, Jehoshaphat stood and said, Hear me, O Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem; Believe in the Lord your God, so shall ye be established; believe his prophets, so shall ye prosper

A ‘NOW’ Word from God, can bring you great blessing in your life.

4. Test the Spirits. 1Co 14:10 There are, it may be, so many kinds of voices in the world, and none of them is without signification.

There are many voices in the earth, and many spirits: human, divine, angelic, and demonic. Just because you hear a voice in prayer, does not mean what you are hearing is God speaking. This is an important topic, so I have written more about it here:  (https://chrisaomministries.wordpress.com/2014/11/10/test-the-spirits-love-truth/)

In summation, any preacher truly sent of God, will want you to grow, to develop, to become all that you are created to be in Jesus. God is a good God, and He wants to be trusted and believed, and He loves to partner with us in vision that is far greater than any of could possibly accomplish in our own strength. Great ministers stretch us, and cause us to rise up and grow, and do exploits for God in our generation. Calling forth nation shakers and history makers! Training and equipping us to grow into our destiny and calling, learning how to supernaturally move in our world….

100 Watts in a 60 Watt World

100 Watts in a 60 Watt World

100 Watts in a 60 Watt World
I was at a conference one day, and I heard a minister named Jill Austin, make the following statement, that really helped me at the time.
She said that the anointing upon a persons life, can be compared to light. That when God promotes a person, in a local congregation or community, they are like a 100 watt light bulb, burning bright for Jesus.
If the Christian community where they serve, is moving in a corporate anointing that is equivalent, to say, 60 Watts, then the new light on a person, exposes the darkeness of others in the organization, and usually, these very ones, who should perhaps embrace the new level of power, glory, and revelation manifest, become its prime persecutors…
This really spoke to me at the time, and still does today.
Hebrews 10:32
New International Version (NIV)
32 Remember those earlier days after you had received the light, when you endured in a great conflict full of suffering.
Hebrews 10:32
King James Version (KJV)
32 But call to remembrance the former days, in which, after ye were illuminated, ye endured a great fight of afflictions;
As I have thought about this today, I have something I need to say about it.
In my life, this has been my experience, and it is indeed Scriptural. When God authentically speaks to me, and I have, in my zeal and passion, shared what I saw or heard, often, the very people I thought would become my closest encouragers and supporters, often became my most brutal wet blankets, trying to put out my fire, or in directly opposing and persecuting me!
Ouch! Touch any nerves for anyone yet?
OK, rather than bash some great people, let’s look and see if perhaps, I have learned a few things, that may prevent you some similar pain.
First of all, let me say, that Jesus Himself, was crucified, and He did not promise you and I an easy life,
Matthew 10:24
The disciple is not above his master, nor the servant above his lord.

John 16:33
These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall havetribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

In this life, there are hard things we must walk though, no compromise.
Yet, John Wayne made this statement:
‘Life is hard, It’s even harder if you are stupid!’
What I want to share, is some of my own stupidity, that I pray, may save you some of the pain I have endured.
First of all, let me make some statements:
1. When you authentically hear God, ask HIM if you are to share what He showed you. Sometimes stuff is just for you, to be walked out in faith. Joseph got thrown in a pit and sold into slavery by His brothers, for sharing when perhaps he should of shut up! Yet, there times that God speaks, and let the chips fall where they may, PREACH IT!
Luke 12:3
Therefore whatsoever ye have spoken in darkness shall be heard in the light; and that which ye have spoken in the ear in closets shall be proclaimed upon the housetops.

2. Write it Down! If it was important enough for God, Creator of the Universe to speak to you, surely you can write it down. Habakkuk 2:2 And the LORD answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it. 3 For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry. Sometimes what God showed you is immediate, but often, it may be for some years down the line. Sometimes, what He says, is sovereign, and will surely come to pass, as in the gifts of the Holy Spirit, that are ‘as He wills’, other times, things must be believed, received, and walked out in faith. These words must be guarded in our hearts, for satan would love to steal. Matt 13: 18 Hear ye therefore the parable of the sower.
19 When any one heareth the word of the kingdom, and understandeth it not, then cometh the wicked one, and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart. This is he which received seed by the way side.

Rather than go on this whole topic, let me share a couple of practical thoughts on relationally dealing with people in love on both sides of this fence.
History is full of examples of people that learned the world was round, when critics claimed it to be flat, learned to fly, and did what had never been done before.
First of all I think of the words of Kenneth E. Hagin, ‘My light does not burn any brighter, by snuffing out the light of another.’
What seems to happen, often, is when God speaks to someone, whose life appears to be chaos, something amazing, that He alone can do, and if you have breath in your body, your natural cynicism immediately says (at least mentally), (Yeah, right!).
Yet, God loves to oppose the proud and exalt the humble, and change the world through broken people, for is it not written:
1 Corinthians 1:27
But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;

Wisdom is this, DO NOT OPPOSE THE PERSON, ENCOURAGE THEM!
God may have actually spoken to them, and He can do anything!
Luke 1:37
For with God nothing shall be impossible.

If the person has a call to do something great, give them these verses, and counsel them to qualify the call, according to the Word of God.
1 Timothy 3:1-7
Amplified Bible (AMP)
3 The saying is true and irrefutable: If any man [eagerly] seeks the office of bishop (superintendent, overseer), he desires an excellent task (work).
2 Now a bishop (superintendent, overseer) must give no grounds for accusation but must be above reproach, the husband of one wife, circumspect and temperate and self-controlled; [he must be] sensible and well behaved and dignified and lead an orderly (disciplined) life; [he must be] hospitable [showing love for and being a friend to the believers, especially strangers or foreigners, and be] a capable and qualified teacher,
3 Not given to wine, not combative but gentle and considerate, not quarrelsome but forbearing andpeaceable, and not a lover of money [insatiable for wealth and ready to obtain it by questionable means].
4 He must rule his own household well, keeping his children under control, with true dignity, commanding their respect in every way and keeping them respectful.
5 For if a man does not know how to rule his own household, how is he to take care of the church of God?
6 He must not be a new convert, or he may [develop a beclouded and stupid state of mind] as the result of pride [be blinded by conceit, and] fall into the condemnation that the devil [once] did.
7 Furthermore, he must have a good reputation and be well thought of by those outside [the church], lest he become involved in slander and incur reproach and fall into the devil’s trap.

These verses must be the battle cry, for any of us authentically called into Christian leadership, whether in the church, or business world.
God may give a visionary directive, but the vision must be qualified through character.
This is not some secret formula, rather, is the application of these verses, to our personal lives, and for those of us honestly seeking the power of God to change this generation, we discover we NEED God’s power to walk in this, faithfully, diligently, daily.
So, whether you are the soul on fire, filled with passion, zeal, and clear revelation, or the one who sees them burning, while it seems like their personal life is flakey, let’s walk in love, and help each other get to where we need to go in the kingdom of God.
We might need their revelation (if THEY are the 100 Watt bulb) or we might need their character and stability (If WE are the 100 watt bulb).
On both sides of the fence, the love of Jesus must prevail. God hates rebellion, and he who sows discord among the brethren….
Much can be said here, but this is all I need to share today, to get this out there. God would have love, and unity in His Body, His church, this precious Bride.
Let’s Pray:
‘Father, grant me illumination, power, light, miracles, creativity to change this generation, and to bless this earth! May I ever seek you for holiness and purity of heart and conduct, as you develop your love and character in me. May I never be a wet blanket to another person’s fire and zeal, but in humility, gentleness, and love, may I be quick to pray, as I see glaring needs in them, and their ministries. Help me to bring others, into what you have shown me, free from spiritual pride, haughtiness, and arrogance of way. Show me what and where to share, with whom, when to pray, and when to say, what I know to be true, that I might be the vessel of honor you need me to be, in this generation, for the sake of the harvest, and Your great name Lord Jesus, I pray, Amen!”

Prayer for Secret Societies

Prayer for Secret Societies Prayer for Secret societies: I do not know end time events very well yet, but I do know the Holy Spirit, intimately.

As I was reading: Dan 8:23 And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up.

24 And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power: and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practise, and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people.

25 And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand. It appears that these verses refer to the anti-Christ, and for those of us with eyes to see, this spirit is surely at work in the earth.

We see politicians in power of fierce countenance, with supernatural understanding of dark sentences, with mighty political power.

These leaders did not come to power by military might, but ‘not by their own power’, and it is amazing to those of us who know God, to see them prosper, practice wickedness, and they destroy the work of God in the earth.

Without military coo nor force, they pass policies that are clearly against God and His holiness: abortion, same-sex marriage, implementation of national debt.

While in college, I read a book about a ‘secret society’ that worked globally, that planned the politics of nations, by buying and selling economies, and overthrowing national governments as they saw fit, all that they might become more wealthy, and more importantly, would practically rule the earth.

Though I was not serving Jesus at the time, this book caused the hair on the back of my neck to raise, because I suspected, even back then, that this was actually happening in the earth, and that somehow this book, that had ‘accidently’ appeared on a reading list for a discussion group in a philosophy of atheism course, was designed to be a recruiting tool for their organization, reaching out to sharp, atheistic minds around the world.

At the time, these were only premonitions and vague suspicions, but as the years have gone on, I have been exposed to the work of these globalists through the world of the Bilderberg society, the Illuminati, and the secret meetings of demonic worship held in California at a place called ‘Bohemian Grove’ where world leaders meet, to worship in their festival of fire, as an effigy of the owl, an ancient symbol for the demonic entity the Bible calls Molech.

Seems that President John F Kennedy was about to expose their work in the United States, and was assassinated before he was able to present his speech of expose’. Here is an excerpt from his speech:

“For we are opposed around the world by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy that relies on covert means for expanding its sphere of influence–on infiltration instead of invasion, on subversion instead of elections, on intimidation instead of free choice, on guerrillas by night instead of armies by day. It is a system which has conscripted vast human and material resources into the building of a tightly knit, highly efficient machine that combines military, diplomatic, intelligence, economic, scientific and political operations. Its preparations are concealed, not published. Its mistakes are buried not headlined. Its dissenters are silenced, not praised. No expenditure is questioned, no rumor is printed, no secret is revealed.” http://www.thepowerhour.com/news3/jfk_speech_transcript.htm

These people exist. Rather, than enter into fear, or denial, I have sought the Lord, on how best to deal with these ‘secret’ societies, that for all intents and purposes, currently rule the earth.

Da 2:44 And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever.
Da 4:3 How great are his signs! and how mighty are his wonders! his kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and his dominion is from generation to generation.
invisible
There is a kingdom that, though invisible to the naked eye, is almighty, and that actually rules the thoughts and plans of mankind.

This kingdom, the kingdom of God, is designed to destroy every other kingdom, and is a kingdom that cannot be shaken. Nebuchadnezzer discovered this. Da 4:32 And they shall drive thee from men, and thy dwelling shall be with the beasts of the field: they shall make thee to eat grass as oxen, and seven times shall pass over thee, until thou know that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will.

Da 4:34 And at the end of the days I Nebuchadnezzar lifted up mine eyes unto heaven, and mine understanding returned unto me, and I blessed the most High, and I praised and honoured him that liveth for ever, whose dominion is an everlasting dominion, and his kingdom is from generation to generation:

Da 7:14 And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed.
15 ¶ I Daniel was grieved in my spirit in the midst of my body, and the visions of my head troubled me.

16 I came near unto one of them that stood by, and asked him the truth of all this. So he told me, and made me know the interpretation of the things.

17 These great beasts, which are four, are four kings, which shall arise out of the earth.
18 But the saints of the most High shall take the kingdom, and possess the kingdom for ever, even for ever and ever.
19 Then I would know the truth of the fourth beast, which was diverse from all the others, exceeding dreadful, whose teeth were of iron, and his nails of brass; which devoured, brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with his feet;
20 And of the ten horns that were in his head, and of the other which came up, and before whom three fell; even of that horn that had eyes, and a mouth that spake very great things, whose look was more stout than his fellows.
21 I beheld, and the same horn made war with the saints, and prevailed against them;
22 Until the Ancient of days came, and judgment was given to the saints of the most High; and the time came that the saints possessed the kingdom.
23 Thus he said, The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon earth, which shall be diverse from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces.
24 And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise: and another shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings.
25 And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.
26 But the judgment shall sit, and they shall take away his dominion, to consume and to destroy it unto the end.
27 And the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdom under the whole heaven, shall be given to the people of the saints of the most High, whose kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall serve and obey him.

Again, I do not pretend to fully understand everything in the times in which we live, but I have read about the Bilderbergs, the illuminati, and Bohemian grove. There are becoming bolder in their operations, as they now own the Harp weapon, and any world leader (like Japan) that will not comply with them, can have their country destroyed by earthquake or tsunami. They orchestrated 9/11, and they use global events to constantly expand their rule, creating global crisis, then becoming the ‘solution’ to the crisis they created, in order to become more firmly entrenched in the region they which to possess. secret2

Bohemian Grove – yearly ‘Festival of Fire’ where human sacrifice offered up to Molech

We have endured a US President, that has just been reelected on a political platform, totally opposed to the Word of God. Sure looks like: Dan 8:23 And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up. 24 And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power: and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practise, and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people.

I am not saying the President Barack Obama is the actual antichrist described here, but he is operating in an antichrist spirit, that has used politics and policy to destroy righteousness in the United States of America.
righteousness exalts

2Co 4:4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.

Yet, the good news is this: 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.

Jesus is Lord of heaven and earth!

Jesus is Lord
All authority in the earth belongs to Him, not devils, and that authority, has been delivered to us, the saints of the most High God!

keys to kingdom
Satan’s only power, is in deception, because he has no authority any more, Jesus took it from him, when He rose from the dead.

Eph 2:6 And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:

We have authority in the earth, over demons, and demonically inspired people.

Despite their plans to implement the death camps across the US, and their planned genocide against Christians and Jews, they have no authority to carry out their plans, as long as we stand in faith, and resist them in prayer.

Ps 83: 2 For, lo, thine enemies make a tumult: and they that hate thee have lifted up the head.

3 They have taken crafty counsel against thy people, and consulted against thy hidden ones.

4 They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance.

5 For they have consulted together with one consent: they are confederate against thee:

Ps 2:1 ¶ Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?

2 The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying,

3 Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.

4 He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision. secret1 5 Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure.

6 Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion.

7 ¶ I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee.

8 Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession.
ask0
9 Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter’s vessel.

10 ¶ Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth. 11 Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling.

12 Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him.

The solutions in America and globally, will not come only from the White House, but the church house, as we exercise the authority of God, through His Word decreed, and expose the plots and machinations of men, and actually break the reign of the demons empowering them. We now have a President that has been elected on a platform that glorifies God. He will not be able to do his job, unless we, the church stand upon his platform promises before the throne of God, and work to again establish righteousness in the earth, that God can bless.

To say these secret societies do not exist, is like the ostrich that sticks her head in the sand, when the lion attacks. She will be eaten.
ostrich sand
Denial is not the answer. Yet, neither will there be a mere political solution. Sure it is good to expose their works:  Alex Jones are working on doing this naturally, yet unless the demons actually reigning through these people are expelled, we discover that:

Eph 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

1Co 2:14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. People under demonic power, will not listen to you, nor I, they cannot hear us, for they are not yet born-again, and their human spirit is still darkened, they have no spiritual discernment.

Yet, there are the Elisha’s of God in the earth, prophets greatly feared in the realms of darkness, who know their authority, and see both demonic activity, but expose the political plots of men.

Isa 45:3 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.

Isa 48:6 Thou hast heard, see all this; and will not ye declare it? I have shewed thee new things from this time, even hidden things, and thou didst not know them.

Remember how the enemy king had his military strategies constantly exposed to the point he was sure there had to be a spy in their midst, there was no spy, simply a prophet of God moving in the revelatory gifts of the Holy Spirit!

2Ki 6:12 And one of his servants said, None, my lord, O king: but Elisha, the prophet that is in Israel, telleth the king of Israel the words that thou speakest in thy bedchamber. These prophets are still in the earth, and since Jesus rose from the dead, there is no longer a power encounter between the kingdom of God and the kingdom of darkness, simply a truth encounter.

Truth revealed, brings freedom, and stops devils and the men they employ, in their tracks. So, rather than spend hours teaching on the work of these secret societies, let’s do something about their reign of terror. Brother Hagin used to teach us, that if we try to fight spiritual battles, in the realm of reason or intellect, we will lose every time, for the devil is a liar and the father of all lies. He has been deceiving people for centuries, and is very good at it. Yet, if we hold the devil in the realm of faith and authority, we win every time, for greater is He that is in us, than he that is in the world.

1Co 15:57 But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

1Jo 5:4 For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith. Secret Let’s pray: ‘Father, I bring before you today, the Federal Reserve, the Bilderbergs, Bohemian Grove, the masons and the illuminati, and all of their allegiances globally. I ask that you reveal their works to intercessors, and expose their plots of destruction to the earth. I come against, and bind, break, forbid and stop, the work of every evil spirit operating there, and I release, loose, enforce and believe I receive your kingdom there in power, love, righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. I ask you for revelation of Jesus to every person, involved in these societies, and pray for their salvation, and that they would discover your love, goodness, and mercy today. Forgive them Father, for they know not what they do. Your kingdom Father, is righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. By faith I enforce Your kingdom in these societies, trusting you to release righteous, holy agendas and plans to these people, by the Holy Spirit, and that they would fear You, and do what you instruct them. To those who do know what they are doing, directly opposing your church and Israel, may they have a Saul of Tarsus experience, where you confront them personally, in your power that they be stopped, and may learn to bow before your majesty. By faith, I declare Your decree against them, and I stop them, by faith, In your name I pray Lord Jesus, Amen.’

Thoughts Words and Deliberate Deeds!

Thoughts Words and Deliberate Deeds!

Thoughts Words and Deeds

Thoughts:
2Co 10:5 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;

Ro 12:2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

thoughts

We work on getting our minds transformed by the Word of God, and we constantly, in this fight of faith, must take our thoughts captive to the Word of God. We resist, rebuke, and stand against thoughts that appear contrary to the Word of God, and in a general sense, this we must do, in order to live a holy life, in thought, and in purity of heart.

pure blessed

Our heart of hearts, our human spirit, the place where Jesus lives when we received us, only has three gates: Our eye gate, ear gate, and mouth gate.

To walk in holiness and purity, we must guard what we look at, hear, and speak.

worthless

Yet, sometimes, we move according to the Word of God, assuming we know to do right, and discover troubling Scriptures, one’s that allow the living God, breathing room.

Imagine the distress of Joseph, engaged to married to Mary, the mother of Jesus, and then to discover her to be pregnant!

He loves her, and the law would have her stoned for her unfaithfulness, yet he decides, to simply break the engagement, and to put her away quietly.

Outwardly, I would agree with his decision, yet God speaks to hearts..We know the story:

Mt 1:20 But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost.

His godly principals got rocked by the voice of the Creator of the universe!

We think godly thoughts, for this we are commanded to do:

Is 55:7 Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.
thoughts world

Yet, while Joseph was fighting his internal battle of decision, he was interrupted by the higher thoughts of God:
8 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD.
9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.

Moral of the story: It is good to be a man of principal, a godly man, but when God Himself speaks, it is better to be a man of God!

The same thing goes with words:

Jesus taught us: Mt 5:48 Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.

Jas 3:2 For in many things we offend all. If any man offend not in word, the same is a perfect man, and able also to bridle the whole body.

So we need to watch our words, to grow in maturity…

words heart
Then, there are our deeds:
Jas 1:22 But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.
Jas 1:23 For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass:
mirror
The primary work of faith is words, yet God expects us to do something with what we believe. We need to act upon what we believe, and what these corresponding actions need to be, to manifest and demonstrate our faith, boil down to this:

Whatever He says: ‘DO IT!’.

Seems this phrase has become my battle cry these past couple of years, as daily, I seek His face, His voice, for clear direction in this calling and mandate upon my life. You do too.

bread
Quickly, as you sell out to Jesus, you discover, that Mt 4:4 But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.

It is a spirit led lifestyle that pleases God, a living relationship with a living God, not merely a religious exercise.

Jesus was our example, He only did the will of our heavenly Father: We can too!

In general, we carefully guard our thoughts, our words, and our lifestyle, walking and ever moving forward in faith in sometimes nothing else than His written Word.

no lie
Yet there are times, we face impossibilities, and if we are honest, we do not know what to do.

We ask Him for wisdom, and His way to be revealed, but if we don’t know, we don’t know.

Spiritual intelligence in leadership is in this verse:

1Co 4:5 Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the Lord come, who both will bring to light the hidden things of darkness, and will make manifest the counsels of the hearts: and then shall every man have praise of God.,
We know in part, and prophesy in part…

Let’s pray:
‘Lord Jesus, You are my Lord, my Shepherd, my pastor. May I be faithful to think right, speak right, and act right before You today. For the brutal, or unknown circumstances of my life, may I have the courage to wait, and hear, what You would reveal I must do, in light of what Your reveal. May I ever hear Your voice, and whatever you say, may I instantly obey, in your name I pray Lord Jesus, Amen’
