Receive back your inheritance: a parable from the Holy Spirit



Receive Back Your Inheritance  A Parable from the Holy Spirit

The Kingdom of God is like a man who went away to a far country and he left his children in charge of his household.  Instead of taking care of the fathers household the children decided to maximize on the things that they could make and the things that they could do, so they allowed merchants to come into their house and to live on the land and to rent out the different rooms of that household.  Now many years went by and after some time the father wanted to come home to give the children the inheritance.  So, they traveled back to their own country.  But when they came onto the property and into that household, they found merchants who had legally acquired shops, places to rent, they had a bakery, they had all sorts of merchandise and things for sale, and the children of that household and the father could not enter back into that household, because they would have to hire a lawyer in order to make it back onto their own property.  So, one person standing by said, he said to the father; “Why don’t you not put up a fight, just give that entire inheritance over to those merchants and then purchase another property, another land, and give THAT to your children?”  But the father responded and said; “This is all of our inheritance and if this is lost EVERYTHING is lost!”  In the back of the father’s house was a river.  The river was beautiful.  And one asked; “Does this river belong to you or who’s river is this?”  And the children answered; “The river is not God’s, the river belongs to the government.”  Eventually the father himself put an end to it all.  The father evicted those that were in his house, he got rid of all those who were selling merchandise and he gave back his inheritance TO THOSE CHLDREN WHO WERE WORHTY TO RECEIVE IT.  For those who have an ear to her let them hear this parable, because God’s house has become a house of merchandise, thieves and robbers, and they will steal your inheritance away from you.  What do you think will happen to those ungodly children who have willfully done this with God’s inheritance?  God’s house shall be called a house of prayer, but the merchants and the men of this world have made it into a den of thieves and robbers and sorcerers.  Will you be part of those that are worthy to inherit God’s house, the inheritance that is for you and your children?  Or will you give it over to the merchants, like how the children of this world and how the worldly christens have given their inheritance over to the merchants?

The end of the world and hatred of Jesus Christ

 


The End of the World and Hatred of Jesus Christ

For those of us who follow and obey Jesus Christ, it’s not the end of anything for us, it’s just the beginning of the reign of Jesus Christ, the one who WAS, who IS and who IS TO COME.  But for the world, the more things progress the closer it is to the end, and all the kingdoms of the world will come to an end, just as foretold in those prophecies, like that image that was seen by Nebuchadnezzar, remember in Daniel, the head of God, and then it goes down all the way into the feet of the mixed materials, the combination of men and demons.  And everything is about to come crumbling down from the top all the way to the bottom.

 The business men of the world and the merchants and all these people who are thinking they make the world go around, they try their best to eliminate Jesus Christ, because if they can get Jesus out of the picture then they can become their own gods, satan doesn’t need you to worship him by using his own name, you can call him by YOUR name.  You can become your own god and you are worshiping satan pretending that YOU are the god.  And a lot of these people that have pulled themselves up by their own bootstraps, they are their own gods.  They don’t worship anyone but themselves, they are their own gods.  And the closer we get to the end of the world, more and more people will be worshiping themselves, acting like there is no true God, no true morality no real truth, and they will have pushed Jesus Christ completely out of the picture.  They may have religion, but in the New World Order, they won’t need religion like how it WAS at all.  satan doesn’t need anyone’s religion, satan want’s to be worshiped and if you’re not going to worship him the way he wants you to he will cut you down.  And God has allowed satan to have power over this world, satan will be allowed to cut down this world because it belongs to the devil.  But satan cannot touch those who belong to the KING who WAS, who IS and who IS TO COME!  I want to read to you what is recorded about this in Revelation;

This is revelation chapter 1:1-8 “John, to the seven churches which are in Asia: Grace to you and peace from Him who is and who was and who is to come, and from the seven Spirits who are before His throne, and from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the firstborn from the dead, and the ruler over the kings of the earth.  To Him who loved us and washed us from our sins in His own blood, and has made us kings and priests to His God and Father, to Him be glory and dominion forever and ever.  Amen.  Behold, He is coming with clouds…” (What are those clouds, those are the clouds of the witnesses, the witnesses who belong to Jesus Christ, who will proclaim Him and NOT be ashamed of Him, the 144,000)  “….and every eye will see Him, even they who pierced Him…”  (How is this possible? When Jesus returns how will it be possible that even those who put Jesus on the cross, those Roman soldiers, those responsible in the Synagogues of satan, how will it be possible that they will see Jesus Christ?  That is because when you see Jesus when He returns is at the point when you die.  Still maybe people will say, “How is that possible, because Jesus died before those Pharisee?” Jesus is outside off our time frame, and when Jesus returns ALL of those from the beginning who persecuted Him, to the end will KNOW that HE IS THE ONE TRUE AND LIVING GOD!)

“Every eye will see Him, even those who pierced Him, and all the tribes of the earth will mourn because of Him.  Even so, Amen.”  (All the tribes of the world will mourn because of Jesus Christ because He is the one they have been wanting to push OUT of their worldly system since the beginning of time.  satan ever since Adam and Even has been whispering lies, trying to give people knowledge and wealth and health, but as we know it’s all been a deception from the beginning of time from the Garden of Eden.  But Jesus is the King who was, who is, and who is to come, that is what the Lord put on my heart and on my mind this morning.  Jesus says; “I AM THE ALPHA AND THE OMEGA, THE BEGINNING AND THE END,” says the Lord, “WHO IS AND WHO WAS AND WHO IS TO COME, THE ALMIGHTY.””

Jesus Christ is the Almighty God, He is one with His Father, you cannot separate Him from His Father, you cannot separate Him from the Spirit of God.  Many Christians make division going around preaching saying that, they talk about the Trinity and they talk about how Jesus is less than God, and they talk about God being 3 in one.  We cannot understand how Jesus Christ and His Father and the Holy Spirit are ONE, and people for years have made divisions over this, but as the Children of God we don’t have to understand it, we have to MAKE DISCIPLES, WE HAVE TO LIVE HOLY!  We have to preach the truth so that people will come into the love of Jesus Christ and obey this LIVING KING who WAS who IS and who IS TO COME! Are you in His Kingdom already, are you worshiping Him and praising Him?  Or are you like the merchants of this world and the wise men of this world, the snakes of this world who think they can push the living God out of their life?  May the grace of Jesus be with you.

The rapture deception

 


The Rapture Deception

We are living in times of uncertainty where many people are just looking around for the truth hoping to find answers but because they are not hearing from the Holy Spirit of GOD they are in darkness.  People for years have taught about the rapture, the Christian church has said that people would be raptured before tribulation, before the Great Tribulation.  And a lot of people then they put their hope in the rapture.  They think that Jesus will just rapture them out of the world.  WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?  What do people think that it looks like to be raptured?  Their idea of it is all the souls floating up into heaven when Jesus collects His church.  (Praise Jesus everybody, I see your comments) The idea is that you just go up into heaven.  But do we think that we are going to go into the clouds with our physical clothes, our physical shoes, the bible that we are carrying in our hand?  Do we think that we are going to take stuff, our stuff into heaven?  I think most people realize when they go up to be with the Lord, if they were worthy, that they are not bringing all their stuff.  They are not bringing their clothes, they are not bringing their books, they are not bringing all their toys, the only thing that is going in IS YOUR SOUL.  And so, why would we think that a rapture would include our physical body, our physical clothes, all those physical things like we saw in the Hellywood movies.  That is a deception and this deception deceives a lot of Christians because instead of knowing they have to endure to the end with Jesus, now they are under this impression that they will just be raptured and not have to die.  But you and I will have to die, we will have to live for Jesus every day, and we have to die for Him.  We have to endure with Him to our death.  And then if we have endured and we are worthy because we have stayed with Jesus the whole time THEN we will inherit everlasting life, THEN we will be saved.  But many Christians think they are saved now, they don’t have to endure, and if anything comes as a trial, they think they will be raptured.  But Jesus said in Matthew  chapter 24 verse 13; “But he who endures to the END shall be saved, and this gospel of the Kingdom will be preached in all the world to all the nations and THEN the end will come…”

 It is clear that we have to endure TO THE END.  And it’s quite a deception to think that you will just go up into the heavens with all your clothes on like they show in the Hollywood movies, or that you will be raptured right on our of your clothes.  To the common person, what it looks like if someone is “raptured”, is that they just DIED, they just died of normal causes.  It doesn’t look supernatural.  How God works most of the time is in a way that requires FAITH.  To those who have an ear to hear they will see that it is supernature, but to those who don’t have an eye to see or hears to hear they will think that those saints just died of normal causes just like everyone else in the world.  If you don’t have faith, you can write it of as it’s just totally physical, those things happen. 

I want to read to you what Jesus did say though in Matthew chapter 24 starting in verse 29; “Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the starts will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken.  THEN the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.  And He will send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they will gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.” 

How many people do you think died during the tribulation or before the tribulation?  Probably MOST of the Christians, in fact somewhere in the scripture it’s written that when the Son of Man comes will there be faith left on the earth?  (Luke 18:8) So that sure makes it seem like many if no most all the Christians, the true Christians died (or fell to corruption) during the time of the tribulation or before.  SO, the fact that Jesus is saying “immediately AFTER the tribulation of those days”, indicates that if you made it to that period of time, THE GREAT TRIBULATION, most likely you would have already perished (by its completion).  Either you would have been put to death or died of natural causes before the time that tribulation was over.  So, for us to hold onto the idea that we will be raptured before tribulation is pretty ignorant because in reality everyone up to this point who has died that believed in the rapture, and that they were going to be “raptured”  all has died of NATURAL CAUSES, they were not “raptured” and the only thing that is going to matter is if they were REALLY RIGHT WITH JESUS, IF THEY REALLY REPENTED OF THEIR SINS BEFORE THEY DIED OF NATURAL CAUSES.  But this is what Jesus says;

“THEN the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.  And He will send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they will gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.” 

Some people have supposed that the 4 ends or the 4 corners prove that the world is flat.  And that is just ridiculous because all of us know that a compass has 4 corners, it’s North, East, South and West.  And this is just representing that everywhere across the entire earth, the globe, THE ROUND GLOBE, everywhere across the entire globe that the Lord Jesus will collect those who belong to Him and will bring them to Himself.  But how do we suppose that will happen?  I think that Hellywood has deceived a lot of people to think that they will be able to take their things, which in fact we can’t bring anything.  You are not going to bring the shirt on your back, you are not going to bring any of the things that you have stored up here in this world.  But if your SOUL is prepared because you are with Jesus then when the time is ready, then you will go home to be with HIM.  And WILL WE BE READY ON THAT DAY?  Will we be ready on the day that Jesus returns? When He is ready to collect our soul, will we be ready to be with Jesus Christ?  Or will we have debts that are not paid, will we have people that we have offended that we have not apologized to or will there be loose ends?  We need to make sure that our house is in order that our lives are in order, and that we are living holy and pure every single day, that every singe day we are denying ourselves, taking up our cross to follow Jesus, that we are ready to live for Him EVERY DAY, and die for Him EVERY DAY. 

Will YOU be prepared, is your heart prepared, is your family prepared?  Make sure that you are staying separate from the world and that you are enduring with Jesus to the very end.  May the grace of Jesus be with you. 

 

Don't become demonized

 


Don’t Become Demonized

Praise Jesus today everyone, it’s truly a blessing to stand with our Creator Jesus Christ, HE is the living God and He is the only one worthy to lead us and guide us into everlasting life.  We need to make sure that we are separate from the world, the deceptions of the world and of the flesh and of demons.  On the news more and more they are talking about UFO’s, aliens, and I find it interesting during this same time is Covid-19 that we are going through and all these riots that happen across the nation, and people are speaking about things like “racism”.  And while it is good NOT to be racist, it is not racism to be against our enemy satan, and the world is trying to make this deception that if you are against EVIL then you are racist.  It is NOT against black people or white people or any nationality because God created every nationality, every tongue, every people, BUT God IS against hypocrisy, He is against SIN, He is against corruption, and He is against demonism, and our culture is accepting demons, they are accepting witchcraft, they are accepting all kinds of evil and perversion and hatred of God.  And because they are preaching lies the world is starting to believe that being against EVIL is being racist, if you are against aliens and demons then maybe you are racist, if you are against just pure wickedness then maybe you are racist.  One ploy of satan is to get you to fully accept every sort of demonic thing because if you don’t you won’t be politically correct.  And the thing here is this was foretold actually in Daniel, I want to read this to you because it’s telling of the times we are in, but until satan can get people to fully receive the antichrist and to receive demons, satan will not be fully empowered, so once he can shatter the power of the Holy People and make them believe that they are racist if they don’t accept demons, until he can get people to that point satan will not have complete power.  I want to read to you this prophecy of end times in Daniel…. (Video cuts out) Sorry guys, I’m not sure what happened, some difficulty with the streaming here, but you can read Daniel chapter 12 for yourself but in that chapter it speaks about  how that evil empire wants to crush the power of the HOLY PEOPLE, GOD’S PEOPLE.  And satan will not be able to fully reign until he crushes the power of the holy people.  So as long as you and I are rebuking satan in the name of Jesus, as long as we are casting OUT the demons in the name of Jesus and living righteously, satan will have NO POWER in our life and he will not have full power to take over.  I encourage you to continue to pray, seek the LORD, don’t let the culture demonize you, don’t receive aliens and demons and strange teachings REJECT THEM because these things are demonic.  Call on the name of Jesus HE IS THE NAME ABOVE EVERY NAME and He will save you, He will help you and He will lead you into everlasting life. 

Break your word to Satan

 


Break Your Word to Satan

Guys, I got a few emails about this topic so I want to address this, and this topic is about breaking your word, because a lot of us in some way or other have made some kind of deal with the devil.  Maybe we didn’t know it was the devil at the time or maybe we did, and now we feel guilty not to keep that word because we think that it is written in the scripture “don’t break your word”.   Satan is very manipulative and he will make you make deals with him, and then if you break that deal in any way he will accuse you to no end telling you that; “God condemns you because you are breaking that deal with the devil.”  I want to share one example of this, and how you can be set fee.  One example was when my mom was a little girl my grandpa, her dad of course, made her promise that she would read the bible EVERY SINGLE DAY, EVERY DAY OF HER LIFE until she died, and so my mom as a little girl wanting to please Jesus and wanting to please her dad promised her dad that she would read the bible every single day, and she made a deal.  When she grew into her adult life she started to realize the hypocrisy of her parents and that they were using the bible for manipulation, they were using church for manipulation, they had made themselves into their own gods and she realized that she had made a deal with the devil.  It wasn’t your traditional deal with the devil that you would think of, It’s not like she sold her soul to satan or anything like that, but it was a manipulation that came from satan and she felt compelled to read her bible every day even if that was not what the Holy Spirit was calling her to do.  And eventually the Lord just showed her “That’s not of me”, you know, that’s not of God.  And she was able to break free from that by the power of God.  Breaking our word to satan is not a crime against God.  IF you have made a deal with the devil and you break your word to satan, satan will accuse you to no end, but Jesus Christ will NOT condemn you because any word that is being upheld in the world for the devil is NOT sin against God, it rather is the precepts and the rules of satan.  So, I encourage you to break your word to satan.  Break your words to this world, but never break your promise, your word to Jesus Christ.  When He calls you to follow Him and He makes a covenant with you, that new covenant, don’t break the New Covenant.  Make sure that you are covered in the blood of Jesus and that you are living for Him every single day, taking up your cross, denying yourself, ridding yourself of your sins, living in the newness of life, because when we uphold the Covenant then the Lord Jesus upholds HIS end, and when we are not ashamed to spread the gospel and when we are not ashamed of the truth then He is not ashamed of us, He is not ashamed to proclaim us before the angels in heaven.  Break free from whatever binds you, whatever holds you.  A lot of people they feel that they are in between some walls, they can’t escape because satan has put them in a place where they cannot speak because they have promised they would not say certain things, maybe you have people in your family that are keeping you back, and you feel you can’t say anything because you promised uncle so and so, or your dad or whoever that you would never pursue this way of righteousness.  Well, if you want to inherit everlasting life you are going to have to break ties with satan, he will accuse you but Jesus Christ will accept you.  Would you rather be accepted by satan and taken to hell by keeping your word?  Or would you rather break communication, break ties with satan, break your word to satan and inherit everlasting life with Jesus because HE cares for your soul?  May the grace of Jesus be with you. 

Be serious or God will curse you

 


Be Serious or God Will Curse You

I had this memory of my childhood of when I was probably about 8 or 10 years old swinging on a swing, it was a tire swing and it was heavy but the rope wasn’t very strong and there were probably 5 kids all on that rope swing and as our parents were pushing us the rope snaped, and when that rope snapped the whole tire and all those kids that were on that tire swing all fell on top of me, and I just remember as a kid thinking I was going to die getting the air knocked out of me.  Probably a lot of us have an experience kind of like that as a child, just getting the air knocked out of us or falling off a swing, but wouldn’t you as a parent want to protect your child from harm?  Wouldn’t you want to protect your child from falling or getting hurt?  Now when I make a swing for my children I make sure that the rope is strong, that the chain is not wearing and that when I push them they are not by rocks or an area that they are going to get injured.  I try my best as a parent to take care of my children.  And I know that you would do the same thing, BUT a lot of parents are not securing themselves in the Lord and their family in the Lord.  And if we are not serous to obey Jesus and to be free of hypocrisy then we become like a weak link in that chain, it only takes one line, one weak link in a generation for true faith in Jesus to be LOST and for it to break.  And what happens when your entire life is suspended on that chain?  What happens when your family, your children are all suspended on that chain and there is a weak link?  It will break and your children will perish.   Remember that how in the bible over and over again we are told how God visits the iniquity even to the 3rd and the 4th generation, He curses the wicked even to the 3rd and 4th generation, He doesn’t forget but He remembers the sins of the wicked, and if you continue to sin and you are a parent and you are living hypocritically then you are not just affecting yourself, but that sin is being passed into generations, you are the weakest link and that is being passed on from you into your children and will be passed onto your children and your children’s children’s children.  That is a very scary thing to know that our actions will affect people down the road, and very well because of our actions others may be led by hell because of our poor judgment.  Don’t be that weakest link that makes the chain break and that sends your children to hell.  Every single person will be responsible for their own actions, it won’t just be your children (their responsibility alone) or you that is responsible alone.  You are responsible for your actions, and then your children are held responsible for their actions.  But it is hundreds of times more likely that your children will follow Jesus and be free of hypocrisy and free of the lusts of the flesh and of the world if YOU raise them up in Godliness, and that starts when your children are VERY VERY young.  You can’t start when your children are 17 or 18, by that time they are already set in their ways, and as a parent you’ve either raised them for the Lord already or you have lost them.  YOU CAN STILL REPENT, but it’s very possible that that curse from your sin is already manifesting in your generation.  That is a very scary thing, and we need to make sure that we really get our lives in order because if we don’t, God remembers our iniquity even to the 3rd and the 4th generation.  But the blessing is, if you and if I raise our families for the LORD, if we set it in us to live in purity and righteousness, and we dedicate every part of us to the LORD, then God blesses THOUSANDS OF GENERATIONS, thousands of generations for those who seek Him and who will live righteously and who will put their faith in Him, not just to the 3rd and 4th generation but thousands of generations!  Don’t you want your family to inherit everlasting life?  You can’t do it by working more hours and providing in the worldly sense for your family.  The only way to secure your generation is by ridding yourself of hypocrisy, by getting YOUR OWN LIFE IN ORDER with the Lord.  Your children are watching you.  Your friends and your family will watch you like a hawk especially if you call yourself a Christian.    Are you free of hypocrisy?  Are you living for Jesus Christ with all of your heart?  Or are your children going to pick up on your sins, are they going to pick up on your perversions, your immodesty.  Are they going to pick up on all the things that you do that are ungodly?  You can’t just put your children in Christian school, get them into church and think that they will inherit some good morals, some good morality.  They will 100% pick up on YOUR SINS, your perversion, and your hypocrisy.  So, I encourage you to seek the Lord with ALL of your heart, rid yourself of all hypocrisy and all sin.  Make sure that you are 100% solid with the LORD.  And make sure that you raise each of your children of the LORD and NOT for the world.  God has given us this time really to be separate from the world.  That is why He allowed Coronavirus, covid-19 to come upon the world, so that we could pull OUT of the schools, pull OUT of all the sporting events, pull OUT of everything that is ungodly and take a look at our own lives, that we could dross ourselves and have Him purify us from unrighteousness.  That we could become acquainted with the precepts of GOD, that we could get to know our own family and train them in righteousness.  So, the question here is, are you raising your family for GOD?  Are you raising your family and that generation for righteousness?  Or are you raising your family and your generation for hell?  May the grace of Jesus be with you.

Overcome discouragement and lies from satan

 


Overcome Discouragement and Lies from satan

One thing that satan constantly tries to do is wear down the saints, satan will lie to people and tell them that they are worthless, that they should just give up, that they should just go back into the world, he will constantly tell you that you have backslidden, that you’re worthless.  And it is one of the ploys of satan to constantly wear down the saints.  Many saints have become very discouraged, any word that comes from the Lord, satan immediately tries to snatch it from them, and instead of it being an encouragement to them to overcome sins, to repent, to listen to the LORD, to have boldness, satan rather lies to them and he says; “You’re not bold, you can’t overcome sin and you are worthless, other Christians hear from the Lord, you don’t hear from the Lord, Jesus doesn’t love you as much…”  And on and on the accusations go.  It is important WHO we listen to and to know that Jesus Christ has given us power over the evil spirits.  He has given us the power to REBUKE satan in the name of Jesus whether he comes against us with lust, sexual temptation or with doubt, with worry, with envy, or with just discouragement. 

Many of the saints that are following Jesus, they are not falling back to sin, they’re not backsliding in the traditional sense, they are not going back to the ugly old habits of the world.  But they are starting to fall to discouragement, and when they fall to discouragement, they can’t get themselves up, they can’t be an encouragement to others and they are just drained.  So, how do we overcome this?  They way to overcome is by the power and the love of Jesus.  We have to stay in prayer and we have to make SURE that we are not listening to satan.  It’s very easy to listen to the devil, and many Christians are giving their ear to satan. 

Every day when we wake up we have to put on the full armor of God; the helmet of salvation, the breastplate of righteousness, the shield of faith, the sword of the Spirit, the belt of truth and the feet with boots ready to bring the gospel of peace to those that ask.  We have to be fully equipped for every good work.  We have to realize that we are in spiritual combat and whenever the devil comes against us with anything we have to immediately rebuke him and instead of listening to satan we listen to the Spirit of GOD who loves us and who calls us into everlasting life.  I hear from both sides, I hear satan tempting me, I hear from satan trying to discourage me, but also I hear from the Holy Spirit and I choose who I listen to.  Some days it is harder than others to push out satan, but as the Apostle James wrote, we have to resist satan and he will flee, draw close to God and He will draw close to us, and that is what I practice and that is what all of us have to practice if we are going to grow in our faith. 

We have to practice daily resisting satan by having on the full armor of God, rebuking him in Jesus’s name whenever he comes against us, with any lie from the evil side.  And whatever is good, whatever is true, whatever is pure and lovely THOSE things we meditate on and think of.  We think how we will please our Lord and Master Jesus Christ, how we will encourage others.  And the more you practice what is right the better you get at it.  When you start to all to discouragement, the thing is you stop practicing righteousness, you stop encouraging others, you stop listening to the Holy Spirit and you start tuning into satan, and the more you practice at listening to the devil, the better you get at listening to the devil, the more easily you will become discouraged.  But the more you practice speaking about Jesus, speaking HIS name, telling others about Him, the more you practice praying, speaking in your new tongue, the more you sing for the LORD, the better that you will get at those things.  And we want to become experts at singing the Song of the Redeemed.  Not in a prideful way, not that we think that we are better than others, but we need to be very good at singing the Song of the Redeemed, we need to be well versed in righteousness.  Our performance needs to be pushing towards perfection, and when we seek after Jesus with ALL OF OUR HEART, He will perfect us, He will make us perfect.  He will dross us and He will pull everything out of us, He will cut off everything from us that is harming us, hurting us, holding us back, discouraging us.  The more we practice what is right the firmer we will go in the way of the truth and that is what we need to be.

 If we are going to make it in these days, if we are going to overcome satan, we are going to have to be FIRM, our feet are going to have to be rooted on the Rock of Salvation, on Jesus Christ.  I encourage you to push through the accusations of satan, overcome lust, overcome every single lie that comes from satan.  REBUKE him immediately, push it out of your mind and out of your heart.  Tune your spiritual ears to the Spirit of GOD and receive what is GOOD.  PRAY, because Jesus Christ HAS given you the power to OVERCOME.  But YOU have to choose who you will listen to and who you will obey. 

It is not a sin to be tempted, to be tempted in your mind, to have temptations come in, to see things that are tempting, satan will immediately accuse you though and say; “See, you looked at something that was sinful, you lusted, you thought about something that was sinful, you lusted…” But to be temped is not sin, but to dwell upon those things and to start harkening to those things and to give your heart to those things is sin.  So , whenever satan tempts us we have to quickly rebuke him.  Whatever is coming against us from the evil side we rebuke in the name of JESUS and the Spirit of God does give us power over these things if we choose to resist, if we choose to draw close to God, He will draw close to us.  If we resist the devil he will flee.  But we have to continue to resist and we have to continue to walk the path of righteousness, drawing close to GOD.  May the grace of Jesus be with you.

How to escape the mark of the beast



How To Escape the Mark of the Beast

There is no way to escape the mark of the beast as Revelation speaks of except by receiving the seal of the Holy Spirit. (Revelation 13:8) The 144,000 are those who have received the seal from the Holy Spirit. (Revelation 7:3-4)  There are not only 144,000 people, but that number is spiritual and it is figurative.  It represents those people who belong to the Lord and who sing the song of the redeemed!  Just as there is not only 666 people who worship satan and are going to hell, there are not only 144,000 people who follow the Lord.  These numbers are spiritual.  The only way to escape the mark that is coming upon the world as is spoken of in Revelation is by truly receiving the Spirit of God and living on every single word that He speaks.  Some people think that they will be able to escape the mark of the beast just by not getting a needle put into their arm, they think that as long as they can avoid certain places, certain countries, maybe as long as they avoid flying, they think they will be able to avoid it.  But there is no way you will be able to escape the grip of satan, because the mark is coming on every single man and woman high and low, everyone who is not sealed.  (Revelation 13:16-17) (Rev 13:8) So the question is, are you sealed?  Have you received the Holy Spirit? Are you hearing from Him?  Or are you just trying to escape satan by your OWN power?  Because it will never happen.  100% of humanity is going to fall under the grips of satan and satan is going to take them to hell.  The only ones that will be able to escape are the ones that have the Lamb of God, His blood on them covering them, who have received the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world and who have received the seal of the Lamb.  If we truly ae the ones who have received the seal then we have His protection and nothing will stop us from pushing into the Kingdom of God, nothing will harm us.  But don’t be like the people who are fearful, running around thinking that they are going to protect their family and navigate around the end day prophecies, from the end of the world, making bunkers, keeping their family from getting vaccinations or whatever they think they are going to do to protect themselves… You can do all those things and still end up in HELL if you have not truly repented of your sins and if you are not following after the Lamb of GOD who takes way the sins of the world. 

              People wonder what is the mark of the beast?  Are these sings and these things that have happened since 2019, is that the mark of the beast?  What I can say is this; It’s a VERY good indicator of what is to come.  It’s not the completion of what that mark is going to be, but it is a precursor/prerequisite.  What we know about the mark of the beast is it is the MARK OF MAN, people say the mark of satan, but it is the mark of a MAN.  What is the mark of man?  It is something that man made, man created.  What has happened in the last year, year and a half, 2 years, is man has made something, and isn’t it ironic that it has 666 all over it.  Wherever you go you will see 666!  If this is not a manifestation that should wake you out of your sleep, I don’t know what will, maybe nothing.  You kind of have to have your head stuck under a rock or in the sand not to see the physical manifestations of satan, pretty much in every store that you walk into, 666.  Anyone who has a bit of wisdom let them calculate the number, which is the number of a man 666.  Does that mean anything to you, do you see that anywhere?  When you walk into the stores does that compute to you, can you calculate that number, what do you think that means?  Anyone who is hearing from the Holy Spirit and all should be able to calculate that number to some extent. 

              What do we know about this mark?  We know that at the completion of this mark you cannot buy, you cannot sell. (Rev13:17)  What does that look like?  That look like you cannot go into the grocery marked unless you have that mark.  Are we getting the picture?  Do we not see the signs of the time that are plainly in front of us?  We wonder what is the mark of the beast?  What do they say about the beast, they say; “WHO IS LIKE THE BEAST, WHO CAN COME AGAINST hIM!”  (Revelation 13:4)  That’s pretty much what people say; “Who can stop this thing from happening?  How are we going to get our groceries, how are we going to continue to work, unless we bow down to this beast and take the mark?  How will we continue to live?”  Well, how is that mark being forced on you? Is it by gunpoint?  NO!  Is it by knifepoint?  NO!  BUT IT IS A FAITH ISSUE!  When you have your faith in men then you will do anything for men in order for them to give you what you want or what you think you need.  And that is how the mark of the beast will be forced on all people. 

              My provision is in GOD and yours should be also.  And if we know that it is the HAND OF GOD that provides for us, we will not bow our heads and knees to satan.  This world will bow to satan because they don’t have any provision except that which satan gives them.  That is why when the mark is FORCED, not by knifepoint or by gunpoint, when it is forced they will gladly receive it, so they can get everything they need, the money they need, the food they need, they can continue to go back to work, they have protection.  It’s just like the prophecy, “WHEN THEY SAY PEACE AND SAFETY SUDDEN DESTRUCTION COMES UPON THEM…” (1 Thess. 5:3)

              We know a lot about the mark just by reading Revelation, we also know that a loathsome soar comes. (Revelation 16:2) What does that mean?  It says that those that those who received the mark have this nasty/foul and loathsome soar that comes upon them.  What is that speaking of?  I bet you can guess!  When they received that mark on their hand or on their forehead, wherever they received that mark, they get a sore.  Can you guess what that might be?  Can you guess what might be backfiring that people are going to stick in their arms or in their hands or in their forehead?  There are physical manifestations of what is spiritually happening in the world.  And if you don’t see that now I don’t know if you EVER will!  We need to be VERY cautious what we allow into our mind, what we allow into our bloodstream, because these things are prerequisites/precursors for the full-fledged mark of the beast and the reign of the antichrist.  And those that take this mark, after they received that mark and they have rejected the Holy Spirit there is no turning back. 

              I encourage you SEEK THE LORD, pray to HIM, ask Him for guidance, ask Him for His provision!  But don’t give into this mark that is already being displayed around the world, in the physical realm people are already seeing it.   They already have a hunch of what it is.  It’s what you think it is, (full-fledged reign of satan) and it’s only coming more powerfully.  But for those that have their faith in Jesus Christ He will protect them.  Do not fear satan.  Do not fear the one who can destroy your body but who cannot touch your soul.  Nothing can touch your soul if you have the WILL to stay with Jesus Christ.   It is written that there is no weapon that can be formed against you that can harm you. (Isaiah 54:17)  That is if you are with Jesus Christ, if you stay in His will and in His protection, even if they force you into a hospital bed and start shooting you up with needles, even if they force you somewhere and start bringing some weapon against you, NOTHING is going to touch your SOUL!  Nothing is more powerful than the SPIRIT GOD put in you.  And each of us have to choose to go with Jesus Christ no matter what.  We need to let nothing overcome our WILL.  Jesus has given us a will to either serve HIM or to serve satan.  And there are some people who will serve satan to the very end and nothing will break their will.  And there are others who have the WILL to serve Jesus Christ, and no matter how much they are persuaded to serve the devil, no matter how much they are persuaded to serve the enemy, they will never stop serving Jesus Christ no matter what!  No matter what comes our way we have to continue to pursue righteousness and holiness and let absolutely nothing stop us from pushing into the Kingdom of GOD! 

              So, what is the MARK OF THE BEAST?  I think you can guess, it’s already here, its already on the way.  You can’t buy or sell without it.  It brings a loathsome soar.  The devil wants everyone to have it.  People will say; “Who can come against the beast!”  They are already saying it.  “Peace and safety!”  As it is written in the scriptures.  They are already saying it.  I think we can guess.  But the question is will we be able to avoid it because we are sealed with the seal of GOD?  There is no other way to avoid what is coming upon the whole world.  You cannot avoid it by hiding under a rock.  There is no way to avoid satan.  Either you received the seal of GOD and you are protected because the HOLY SPIRIT IS IN YOU, or you are not protected because you are relying on the ARM OF THE FLESH.  Start praying, I encourage you to SEEK JESUS, seek that oil that comes from the Spirit of God, seek the LIVING WATER, seek the nourishment of LIFE that comes from Jesus Christ.  Pray to Him with all of your heart and don’t let anything stop you from pushing into the Kingdom of GOD!  Because HE is the ONLY ONE who can save you.  May the grace of Jesus be with you.

Don't chase after Hebrew Roots, knowledge and dark sayings

 



Don’t Chase After Hebrew Roots, Knowledge and Dark Sayings

There is only one way into everlasting life and that is through Jesus Christ.  Jesus promise the gift of His Holy Spirit to lead us and to guide us and to teach us all things.  There are people though that will try to steal the Holy Spirit away from you for THEIR teachings, for knowledge, just as the serpent tried to deceive Adam and Eve by tempting the with the knowledge of the fruit of GOOD AND EVIL.  A lot of Christians fall into the trap of chasing after knowledge, dark sayings, evil mysteries about Babylon the Great and the church of old, they research Bal, Baal, the Asherah’s, those sorts of things, and these sorts of things don’t lead anyone into the truth of God.  Rather they get people into all sorts of conspiracies, they chase after aliens and demons.  These things make people fearful, but THEY DON’T FEAR GOD.  It is GOD who we need to fear and it is the SPIRIT OF GOD THAT NEEDS TO LEAD US AND GUIDE US.  There are some people who are very knowledgeable who know the roots of words, they study the lexicon, they know the scriptures, and they will try to convince you that you have to know God’s name in Hebrew, that you have to know the “Yod-Hey-Vov-Hey”, you have to know “Yeshua Hamashiach”, you have to know these certain words to proclaim God and if you are not saying His name correctly and if you are not studying these roots of words then you could be calling upon the name of a demon by saying the name of JESUS.  This is foolishness!  Don’t listen to the people that preach this message.  The truth is the Living God is looking at your heart.  He made all nations, peoples, and if your heart is seeking after the true God His name will be know in SPIRIT and in TRUTH.  They way God manifested Himself to people throughout time was by His Spirit of Truth. Remember when God came in the burning bush to Moses He spoke saying I AM the great I am, I am who I am.  He did not say I am “Yeshua”, That revelation (of Jesus as the son of man) was not yet.  And when that angel came to Mary and Joseph proclaiming who Jesus was going to be, the Angel (did not just say) His name will be “Yeshua”, but Immanuel GOD WITH US.  Why is that?  That is because Jesus Christ will save people from their sins!  That is what is for told.  And if we are seeking after a Savior who is going to save us from our SINS, THEN we are seeking after the true God.  But there are many people who do not know the name of God that know how to say; “Yod-Hey-Vov-Hey”, they know how to say names of God in Hebrew, Greek and Aramaic.  They know all the roots of these things, some of them are becoming Jewish and studying Jewish history and Jewish traditions so that they think they can get to the bottom of all these things and become more spiritual and closer to God.  It’s not going to happen.  You can not grow closer to God by becoming like a “Berean”, that’s what they say; “Become like a Berean, study to show yourself approved…”  You can NOT study to show yourself approved before GOD.  The Pharisees thought they could do that.  They were studying all the time, memorizing scripture, and you know what the Lord said to the Pharisees?  He said that they were studying that book for in there THEY THINK they will find eternal life, but they refuse to HIM (JESUS CHRIST) that they may have everlasting life.  Are we like the Pharisees who are studying and just studying and never coming to the knowledge of the truth?  Or are we really worshiping God in Spirit and in truth?  It’s about your heart condition, it’s about where you are spiritually, it’s not about getting a good education and knowing how to dissect and play these games with semantics with the bible.  It’s not about the right commentary, it’s not about the right guy teaching you.  It’s about You submitting to the Holy Spirit, disconnecting from the world, disconnecting from those people that think they are so wise and teaching the bible and all those things.  It’s about repenting of your sins, putting on righteousness, coming clean and saying clean!  Do we really know the name of God because He has written His name and His truth on our hearts?  Do we know the Lamb of God who takes way the sins of the world?  Do we know Immanuel GOD WITH US?  Jesus is Immanuel GOD WITH US, He is GOD in human form.  He is alive and He is working in His people through His Spirit.  Don’t be deceived by the people who chase after knowledge, who chase after dark sayings, they will say; “If you don’t know these secrets about church then you should go and study these things, now that they are pagan, know this is pagan, know that is pagan…”  It doesn’t matter what’s pagan, You will still be taken to hell by the demons even if you know all these things were pagan, if you did not stay surrendered to Jesus Christ and really get sin out of your own life and live for Him with complete humility and righteousness.  Are we really disciples of Jesus?  Or are we just like the hypocrites and Pharisees who rejected Jesus Christ for their traditions, for their knowledge, because they were puffed up knowing the scriptures.  I encourage you to separate, sever yourselves from these sorts of people.  Have nothing to do with them.  We need to make sure that we are a peculiar people, not like the Pharisees, not like the hypocritical Christian culture.  We need to be that peculiar people, that strange people that harken to NO ONE but to the words of Jesus Christ.  Are we living on the true WORD OF GOD that proceeds out of the mouth of God?  Not the bible, not men’s interpretation of the bible, but the true living God that speaks from heaven into our hearts!  Are the Scriptures alive when we read them because our eyes have been opened by the Spirit of God?  Or are we reading them like a Pharisee and a hypocrite and a religious man or a religious woman?  What spirit have we received?  Have we truly received the Holy Spirit?  Or have we received that fruit of the knowledge of good and evil like how Adam and Eve received from the serpent?  They were deceived and satan is still a deceiver.  Make sure that you are not deceived.  Stay separate from evil.  Keep yourself away from evil people and live for the Lord Jesus in complete humility and in righteousness and in TRUTH. 

Hell is real so put on the full armor of God



Hell is Real So Put On the Full Armor of God

Give God glory today because Jesus is still working, He is calling people out of the world, He is calling people to TRULY REPENT, to repent of their sins, to repent of listening to demons and to seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness.  Every single day when we wake up we have to immediately put on the full armor of God.   And we have to remember that we are in it for our souls.  satan will quicky destroy your soul if you stop realizing that you have an adversary.  This morning satan spoke to me 2 lies right while I was waking up and I knew it was a lie and I immedicably rebuked it in the name of Jesus.  Those 2 lies were number 1; “How do you know hell is real, have you seen it?”  And the 2nd lie was; “Why do you think that you need to put on the full armor of God, isn’t that just something that the Apostle Paul taught?”  When we hear lies from satan we need to immediately rebuke satan in the name of Jesus.  Casting out demons starts in our mind, when evil spirits are speaking in our mind we immediately have to rebuke them.  And when we resist satan and when we draw close to GOD, satan will flee and the Spirt of GOD will draw close to us.  That is how we overcome temptation, that is how we overcome satan and that is how we receive the Spirt of Truth.  Everything that is good comes from GOD, which is Love, Joy, Peace… gentleness… ALL those fruits of the Holy Spirit.  We need to receive these as the Spirit of God, but envy, lust, murderous thoughts, fornication, greed, pride, all those sorts of things we need to immediately rebuke and push out.  satan will especially come against you with doubt and lust.  He will make you doubt, make you doubt that you really are in the faith, make you doubt that you are really a child of God, and then he will say; “Well since you are doubting anyways, why don’t you just fall into the lusts of the flesh, go chase after women, go chase after money, chase after your dreams, don’t worry about your family, don’t worry about your children, do the things that YOU want to do NOW…”  he will tell you; “Remember how much fun it can be, remember how much fun you used to have, don’t worry about the future, remember how much fun it is in the moment…”  As soon as you listen to satan you will be deceived, you will be receiving that lie, you will be receiving that doubt.  But as the children of God we have to push OUT doubt, we have to rebuke satan in the name of Jesus, say; “Get behind me devil.”  And when we rebuke satan, and are serous about it he will flee.  And when we are serious to draw close to God His Spirit will be in us and be working through us. 

              I had a few things that I wanted to share that I wrote down.  One things is I just notice how when we do choose to rebuke satan and when we stand firm in the faith people will be watching you like a hawk.  They will be looking for the smallest amount of hypocrisy, they will even be pulling thigs out from your life that are NOT hypocrisy, and that reason is not so much because they care if you are a hypocrite or not, but they are trying to justify THEMSELVES.  See, when we stand in the truth with Jesus, it really convicts people.  People become convicted because they would rather everyone be on the same playing field, they would wish that everyone were in sin, because if you were in sin then your sins would a little bit justify them and they would feel better about themselves.  But the fact is, not everyone is a sinner, some people have repented.  All of us have been sinners, but some of us have been washed clean, some of us have TRULY REPENTED and said; “We NEVER want to go back to those old sins.”  And when we put our faith and our hope in Jesus, we push off the old life, when we continue to deny ourselves and take up our cross then we truly become saints and Jesus washes us clean.   And people will watch you like a hawk, waiting for you to mess up because as long as you are pursuing righteousness, it brings complete CONVICTION to their life, because they KNOW it IS possible to stop sinning, it is possible to get sin out of your life.  And that makes people VERY SCARED, because then they know HELL IS REAL sATAN IS REAL, THEIR SIN IS REAL, and unless they OVERCOME they will perish.  A lot of people they like to go around saying; “Well, you can’t stop sinning brother, and they will be looking VERY intently at YOU, because if they can prove you are a sinner then all their theories are right; “See,  no one, NO ONE can get to God, NO ONE can stop sinning, everyone just continues to sin and as long as you believe in God, as long as you believe in grace brother you are going to heaven…”  That is satan’s gospel.  Jesus has come to truly give us peace, to truly give us that peace that passes all understanding but we have to receive that peace when we KNOW WE ARE IN HIS PEACE.  The Holy Spirit will not comfort you when you are in sin.  You will look for that comfort, you will look for that peace AND YOU WON’T FIND IT.  That is why it is said that there is NO PEACE FOR THE WICKED.  They try to find it and they CAN’T FIND IT.  We need to make sure that we are actually in the peace of God because we are seeking first His righteousness and His Kingdom. 

              Another thing that I wanted to share was still about this idea of “fellowship”, there are a lot of Christians who, if they were seeking after Jesus HALF as much as they are seeking after Christian fellowship, seeking after just friends with people, MAYBE THEY WOULD FIND GOD.  But because they are so worried about fellowship and bible studies, they are so worried about what people think, so worried about being in connection with PEOPLE, they don’t find God, they don’t find HIS PEACE.  Jesus did not call us to fun after Christian fellowship.  He did not call us to run after people.  Call it what you want, call it church, call it fellowship, call it friendship, Jesus didn’t call us to chase after any of that, He said to SEEK FIRST the Kingdom of GOD and HIS righteousness and then everything else will be added unto you!  Jesus does place friends in our life.  But if you chase after friendship first, friendship with the world, friendship with people, friendship with brothers and sisters, THAT IS THE VERY BEST WAY FOR sATAN TO GET INTO YOUR LIFE AND TO DESTOY YOU.  If you want a steadfast relationship with Jesus Christ, seek first HIS righteousness, seek first HIS Kingdom and don’t let ANYTHING stop you.  Don’t let anything get in your path.  Don’t seek first Christian fellowship, don’t seek first what brothers or sisters think.  Seek first the righteousness of God, the one that made you, and the only one worthy to lead you and guide you into everlasting life.  Are we really seeking first His Kingdom and His righteousness?  Or are we listening to demons, are we giving a way for the demons to come into our life to distract us to derail us?  I encourage you as a brother in the Lord to truly be seeking Jesus in these times.  It starts when you pray, get on your knees, find a quiet spot.  Start just praying and saying; “Lord, show yourself to me, I’m not sure what I’m supposed to be doing in these times but I sure what to hear from your Spirit, I want to be filled your Holy Spirit, I don’t want to be drained, drained by people, drained by work, drained by the worries of the world…”  And if you truly seek after Jesus in that quiet place, HE will fill you with the power from on high.  The power from on high doesn’t come from getting into a bible study or getting into fellowships or listening to sermons.  The power from on high comes from GOD, that oil that spiritual food and that spiritual water comes from the Spirit of Life, and that happens when you pray.  God made your spiritual ears, and He made your spiritual eyes.  He made you in a way that if you seek Him, He Himself will fill you.  But you need to be careful who you are going to, to be filled.  Are we truly going to Jesus, are we draying close to God and so that He will draw close to us?  And are we truly resisting the devil and resisting evil doers so that satan will flee?  Check your own heart, check your own life.  Make sure that you are really walking the straight and narrow path.  Because there are so many things that will derail you unless you truly seek FIRST the righteousness of GOD and HIS KINGDOM!  May the grace of Jesus be with you.

Invest in souls

 


Invest in Souls

Remember when Jesus called the disciples, being fishermen, they left their father, they left their nets, they left their boat, and those disciples knew that if Jesus was truly the Messiah, then people would forsake everything that they had and they would leave it behind to follow Him.  They knew that Jesus was worth deserting the world for.  What a better day than today to surrender everything that we have to Jesus Christ.  What can we possibly give in exchange for our soul, in the end we are doing to die and if we haven’t lived a life worthy of the calling that our Father in heaven has called us to, we won’t be able to bring anything into everlasting life we will just being what we have to the grave.  People wonder where to invest their money, what to do with their life, what to do with their money.  Jesus called those fishermen to fish for men.  He didn’t say; “Go continue to fish, become great merchants, build bigger barns to house all your stuff, become a big company and supply the needs for your family for future generations…”  Jesus said; “Seek FIRST the Kingdom of GOD and His righteousness, and everything else will be added unto you…” He calls us to be disciples who will be fishers of men, who will invest in human souls.  What a better thing to invest in.  There is no greater thing then investing in human lives, to seek FIRST the Kingdom of GOD.  Jesus does not care about our stuff, He cares about US, He cares about our hearts.  IF we seek first His kingdom, we will love the Lord our God with all of our heat, soul, mind and strength, and we will love our neighbor as ourself.  So, what does that look like?   What does that practically look like to invest in humans, to fish for men?  Well, it first starts of with being free of the leaven of the Pharisees, which these days is being separate from the leaven of the culture of “church”.  A lot of Christians think ministry happens in church and so the first thing they do when they want to get their life right with God is they get into a church, they get plugged in, but the problem is, because the churches are NOT seeking first the Kingdom of God in righteousness, but living in sin themselves, they then cause others to fall to hypocrisy and to sin.  So, where do we go?  The true church is led by the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world!  That is Jesus Christ.  We go to Him in spirit and in truth and we say LORD, purify us from all unrighteousness, lead me out of sin, lead me out of idolatry, lead me out of the world…. And then when He starts to purify you and dross you and make you a new person, a new heart and a new soul, THEN what spills out of your life is righteousness!  And you go out with your new tongue, singing the song of the Redeemed and people all around you see that you are a changed man or a changed woman.  THAT is the moment that you start to fish for men and you start to make disciples.  NOT because you started a Christian church or a Christian ministry or because you thought up some ministry, but because the HOLY SPIRIT is now residing IN YOU.  No longer is it YOUR ministry, YOUR personality, YOUR agenda, BUT the HOLY SPIRIT is filling you, and the over-poring, or the out-spilling of the Holy Spirit from your life is what encourages other to repent and to seek the LORD!  THIS is where we have to be if we want to be affective, affectively bearing GOOD FRUIT.  Those who bear good fruit the vinedresser prunes, God prunes us so we can bear more fruit, and those who are not bearing ANY good fruit, who are a bad tree, THEY ARE CUT DOWN, those branches are cut off, they are chopped up and they are thrown into the FIRE.  What is the fire?  The fire is HELL.  Many people are not bearing good fruit, they reject the Holy Spirit, they reject God for living their own life or for a bit of religion.  We need to make sure that we are living free from hypocrisy.  That is the FIRST STEP.  Are you free from hypocrisy?  Are you living HOLY?  Because without righteousness and holiness you are not going to see God, you are not going to bear good fruit and you are not going to be part of His Kingdom.  Make sure that you are living without hypocrisy, without the hypocrisy of the Christian culture.  THEN you can start to invest in human souls, you can encourage others in the way of the TRUTH.  Remember that Jesus says; “Whoever of you does not forsake all that he has cannot be My disciple.”  Many of us have not forsaken all to follow Jesus.  We are living for ourselves, are we living for a retirement plan, we are living to make life better for our family, which seems good, BUT Jesus did not call us to just seek after all the things of the world, but to seek FIRST His Kingdom!  So, we need to get real with ourselves and ask ourselves, are we really denying ourselves, are we taking up our cross daily, are we bearing our cross?  Have we left everything like those disciples did on that day that Jesus called them because we know that Jesus is worth it?  Remember that those disciples forsook ALL to follow Jesus knowing that He was the Good Teacher and they did that without turning back.  Every single day they were fishing for MEN.  They were not just fishing for money, they weren’t fishing for women, they weren’t fishing to look good in the economy or in the world, they were fishing for SOULS that people could be saved, that they may put their faith in JESUS and be the sons and daughters of the Kingdom of GOD!  Check your own life and see if you are really bearing good fruit.  Is Jesus pleased with you?  Does He know you as His son or as His daughter and are you doing His work, bearing GOOD FRUIT for the Kingdom of GOD?  Are you investing in the lives of your fellow brothers and sisters?  May the grace of Jesus be with you.

The Covid-19 Vaccination

 



The Covid-19 Vaccination

Give GOD glory today because HE is still speaking to us, Jesus Christ is ALIVE and He is leading His children.  Yesterday my wife and I were talking about the vaccine, covid-19 and how some people are excited to get their shot, to get vaccinated.  My wife mentioned or said something about how, maybe those people will get sick or should we should be scared for them, and I said they will probably be fine, physically probably nothing will happen, everything will go on as normal.  To the eye for most people nothing will seem to change, but what immediately came to my mind from the Holy spirit was the story about Adam and Even.  Remember how God told Adam and eve that they could eat from every tree from the garden except the one in the middle which was the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, they were not supposed to eat from that tree.  And God specifically told them that in the day that they ate from that tree, that they would surely die.  Now we know the story, Adam and Eve were deceived by the serpent, the devil, they ate from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, and satan told them that they would not surely die, but that they would gain knowledge and wisdom, and Adam and Eve ended up eating it and as we know it sure looks like they did not die, physically on that day, but they lived beyond that point because of course they had children, and here we are today.  The serpent is a liar, and he gets people to look at the physicality, he gets people to look at the world and to reject the Spirit of GOD.  Men in our carnal mind cannot understand the Spirit of God, we cannot understand what He is saying.  But the truth is, on the day that Adam and Eve ate from the tree of knowledge of good and evil, they died, AND THEY WERE DEAD IN THEIR SINS.  And each of us are dead in our sins when we reject the WORDS OF LIVE, when we reject the HOLY SPIRIT.  On that day that they rejected God THEY WERE CURSED BY GOD.  Remember that God cursed the serpent to eat dust all the days of it’s life, to be more cursed than every single beast of the field, to this day that is still true.  To this day, woman are still cursed when they have children they bring forth children in PAIN.  Bringing forth a child for a woman is the line between life and death… MAN is still cursed, Adam was cursed, the ground was cursed, God said that you will toil and that all the day of your life you will have that sweat on your brow as you eat your food and that the ground will bring forth thorns and thistles, burs.  And to this day LOOK AT THE GROUND!  Every farmer knows about pesticides because of this problem.  To this day the curse of God, that God has cursed humanity with is still here, and that is because Adam and Eve rejected the words of God for the words of satan the serpent.  How great God’s curse is upon the wicked who disobey! But how wonderful His blessing is upon those who REPENT and put their faith in JESUS CHRIST.  We need to make sure that these days, during Covid-19 and these vaccinations that our faith and our hope and our trust is completely in the LORD, not in the vaccine, not in the healthcare not in the economy, not in men of this world, but that our faith truly is in JESUS Christ.  And what I see as a man of God who is following the LORD is men and women who are putting their faith in the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, and the are eating from it, and then they are saying; “See, we are not dead, we are alive, the devil told the truth…”  And because they listen to the father of LIES they look at everything in the world, they look through their carnal eyes, and they call GOD a liar, and they set up satan and their image as god.  Most Christians have done this, that is the appalling thing,  most Christians are tying to make unity with satan, saying that THAT is god, that is the body of Christ, they are setting up an image, and they are worshiping it, they are bowing down to it, they are making an image to the beast.  That’s what they are doing, that’s what is prophesied would happen and that’s literally what is happening.  What a fearful thing it is to fall into the hands of an angry God, of a GOD who is going to CURSE YOU!  Don’t think that it won’t happen to you, it happened to Adam and Even and God’s words are STILL happening today.  We want to make sure that we are in His blessing.  Don’t think that you can reject God and in that day NOT DIE.  Adam and Eve may have lived to have children, but in the day that they sinned THEY WERE DEAD IN THEIR SINS.  And we ALL are dead in our sins and on our way to hell and death and destruction, to damnation, IF WE DO NOT REPENT AND GET IT RIGHT.  Most people are perishing, they are on their way to hell.  They have no hope, they are committing suicide… and a lot of these people are Christians that think that if they just get the vaccine, that they are doing something good for themselves and their family.  I fear for you, I fear for those who are getting the vaccine BECAUSE I FEAR GOD.  God is going to CURSE THIS WORLD.  He’s going to curse YOU if you reject Him.  WHO are you setting up as your God and who are you following?  Are you following Jesus Christ?  Are you a spiritual man who is spiritually discerning what the LORD is saying?  Or are you like your earthy faither Adam, your earthy mother Eve, who rejected the words of God and who were cursed by God?  Will you receive God’s blessing, or by default will you receive His curse?

The gospel is not for personal gain



The Gospel is Not for Personal Gain

It’s a blessing to be alive and it’s a blessing be working for Jesus, to be called out of the world, to be called to the HOLY LIFE.  I was thinking about how EVERYTHING in this life fails.  Everything except the words of Jesus.  When we are old and time has passed, are we going to care about what we were doing today?  A lot of the things that we chase after are things that are not going to matter even in a year, yet we think that they are SO IMPORTANT.  There ARE things that we have to get done in our lives, there are mundane things that we do have to accomplish, our daily chores, going to work…. Whatever it is we need to do those things with a right heart, but as the children of the LORD we don’t chase after worldly things.  The LORD continues to humble me as a man of God, who will not be someone who is going to chase after things of the world.  In my FLESH I want to chase after things of the world like anyone else, like you or anybody.  But I KNOW I HAVE TO BEAR GOOD FRUIT; I KNOW I NEED TO BE HUMBLE BEFORE THE LORD and He needs to become MORE and I need to become less.  I bring this message to you today in humility, to encourage you as a brother or sister in the LORD, to bear good fruit for the Kingdom of God.  None of us know how much longer we have.  The government is being shaken, personal lives are being shaken.  We don’t know what is happening in the world with the pandemic, if it is getting better or worse, or as soon as things clear up if there will be another wave of disaster.  GOD KNOWS.  But we have to constantly go to Jesus Christ for our provision, seek first His Kingdom and His righteousness.  And what will matter in 100 years from now, or 50 years or however many years into the future, it will ONLY BE WHAT WE DID WITH THE WORDS OF JESUS.  It will not matter if we pursued a certain job position to make more money at the workplace, we won’t care about that.  We won’t be caring about what kind of car we were going to drive, or the raise we got at work, but we will care about what we did with the WORDS OF JESUS!  Did we stand up for Jesus Christ?  Did we live according to our conscience?  Did we harken to the words of the Holy Spirit, those are the things that are going to matter.  And if we harken to THOSE words, we will bear good fruit.  The Holy Spirit will prune us.  The things that are in our life that are not important, that are not bearing good fruit, He will cut OUT of our life.  It will become meaningless to us because it is meaningless in the Kingdom of God.  And then we will bear good fruit for the Kingdom of Heaven, calling people to really repent, calling people to live righteously.

  THE GOSPEL IS NOT FOR PERSONAL GAIN.  (Freely you have received freely give) This is something that the Holy Spirit put on my conscience in the morning, actually in the night as I was waking up.  And to me it meant something personally.  The things that the Lord has blessed me with I need to make sure that I am using those things for the glory of GOD, not for myself.  But generally speaking, the truth that Jesus has given to us, whatever spiritual gifts He has given, is NOT for our own personal gain.  And a lot of us are trying to run with the talents, the gifts, the blessings that GOD has given us, and we are trying to use them for our OWN pleasures.  But I’m here to warn you and to sound that warning, that whatever gifts we have been given, whether it is in this physical realm… we have been given physical and spiritual legs, spiritual arms, we have been given health… all those things ultimately are spiritual (meaning both sorts of giftings, physical and spiritual are both gifts from GOD) And they have been given to us by GOD to glorify His Kingdom, to give HIM glory.  Whether it be a spiritual gift, you know having faith to pray, having the spiritual gift of healing, or faith to cast out demons… Whatever the spiritual gifting you have been given we need to use those things FOR THE GLORY OF GOD, and truly bear good fruit for HIM.  

There are some people, pastors and Christians that, they may not say this out-loud, but they are using the giftings that they have been given to glorify themselves.  They want to look good before their friends, they want to become popular, they want their family to respect them, and ultimately they are caring about the FEELINGS, the FLESH, what PEOPLE THINK.  And as the Children of God, as brothers and sisters, WE NEED TO CARE ABOUT WHAT GOD THINKS OF US.  And we need to make sure that the things that we have been freely given, THAT WE ARE FREELY GIVING, that we are freely preaching the gospel, not asking for things in return, that we are giving to the Kingdom of GOD out of the goodness of our heart, not out of selfish ambitions, not expecting things in return. 

 It goes back to our heart attitude, how we are serving Jesus Christ.  Are we really His Church, serving Him in humility, really wanting to encourage other brothers and siters in the Lord to reconcile?  Do we want that ministry of reconciliation, that people will be SAVED and come into the faith?  Or are we looking for personal gain?  Let us check our hearts today and make sure that we are really seeking FIRST the Kingdom of God and His righteousness and humility and that we are not preaching the gospel or doing anything for our own personal gain.  May the grace of Jesus be with you.  

Love and Truth not pride and empty faith

 



Love and Truth NOT Pride and Empty Faith

Praise Jesus brothers and sisters.  There is a few words that I wanted to share today of encouragement and righteousness to point brothers and sisters of the LORD in the right direction.  First is we always have to remember what our goal and mission is; Remember the greatest commandment, and that is to love the LORD our God with all of our heart, all of our soul, all of mind, and all of our strength, and the second is like it, to love our neighbor as ourselves.  What does that mean?  Does that mean that we go out preaching in a way to belittle others, or we want to just sock the truth to others?  Does that mean that we refrain from loving people because we know that they are different and they believe differently than we do and they have different doctrines than we do?  A lot of Christians do NOT have the love of God in them, they have PRIDE and they hide a lot of their pride behind what they pose as “FAITH”.  But as true children of God we need to make sure that we are actually keeping the commandments of Jesus Christ, which is to love the Lord our God with all of our heart, soul, mind and strength and to love our brother as ourselves.  How can we do that without being judgmental, hateful, prideful… because these are the things that make us fall into the world, and satan loves it when Christians become prideful and divisive, holding things from one another, wanting to gossip and slander others, being easily angered, easily frustrated, walking over others, becoming bitter, angry, holding things inside, instead of confessing, just holding it up and holding in the bitterness.  These are the things that satan loves.  But how do we refrain from that?  How do we PUSH OUT satan?  Well, we have to remember the greatest commandment which is LOVE.  Loving GOD with ALL OUR HEART, and our neighbor as ourselves.  If we do this, we will be in right standing with God.  We have to remember to love others. That doesn’t meant that we just accept all religions as the truth, or that we go out and say; “I love homosexuals and they’re in the truth also, they just have a different lifestyle…”  It’s not about justifying SINS, BUT IT IS ABOUT THE LOVE OF JESUS, and JESUS CALLED SINNERS TO REPENT OUT OF LOVE AND RIGHTEOUSNESS!  Jesus showed us how to keep the greatest commandment of all, and that is also what we have to do as humble brothers and sisters in the LORD.  We need to make sure that we are keeping the greatest commandment, and as part of HIS true church, that we are not hiding behind our faith, saying; “It’s faith”, when in reality it is PRIDE, it’s ANGER, it’s bitterness, it’s wanting to just put others down for making ourselves look good.  We need to check our OWN hearts daily and make sure that we put on humility, that we put on righteousness.  That we are not thinking ourselves as better than others.  Not trying to prove that we are something when we are nothing.  In Jesus, we are humble servants and we need to take His discipline well.  So, for any brothers and siters in the Lord who are hearing this message, I encourage you to keep the greatest commandment, which is to love the Lord your God with ALL YOUR HEART. 

              Secondly is this idea about “doctrines”;  A lot of Christians think that following God is all about doctrines, all about being biblical.  And that is why, when they first start a church, they think that they have to write out all of their beliefs, and they think that as long as they get people into their church that believe LIKE THEM that they will get people saved, they will get people evangelized, that they will get people doing mission trips and they will MAKE people holy.  We CANNOT make any disciples of Jesus if we ourselves are not in the LOVE OF JESUS CHRIST.  And we cannot teach people correct doctrine if we ourselves are not really in the truth FAITH.  It is better to have the LOVE OF JESUS IN YOU and to have FALSE DOCTRINE, THAT IN HUMILITY JESUS WILL CORRECT, than thinking you have ALL the correct doctrine, you know, believing all the correct things about God, all the correct things about church and about the bible… being in the KNOW about these things, BUT NOT HAVING TRUE LOVE.   What is more important is that hour HEART IS RIGHT BEFORE JESUS CHRIST, and that we allow Him to correct us and to mold us and to discipline us in the truth.  It is about WORDS and DEEDS, ACTIONS AND TRUTH, not about just doctrines and believes, you know; “I BELIEVE correctly, I was born as a Christian so I KNOW I am going to heaven…”  It’s not about that. 

Jesus can work with our funny ideas, because all of us have silly ideas about afterlife or about who God is, but those things will be corrected in time IF WE ARE HUMBLE TO BE TAUGHT BY THE GOOD TEACHER.  Those things are really irrelevant, but what IS important is to keep humility on, righteousness on, and THEN Jesus will correct all those things in us that are doctrinally not sound, that are not even true, He will correct those things, but we need to make sure that our hearts are ready to be molded by GOD and not by men.

              The 3rd thing is… (this is something the LORD has been showing me lately), TO NOT MISTAKE GOD’S MERCY FOR HIS APPROVAL.  And what I mean by that is, when we go through our life with Jesus, a lot of times we make certain mistakes, and because Jesus had mercy on us, and we didn’t fall into sin or we didn’t fall into big trouble, we think; “We’re okay, God had His approval on my life.”  And maybe we were doing something that was actually very harmful to others, very harmful to ourselves, and because God had mercy on us and He didn’t allow us to fall back into the world or do die, then we start to mistake God’s mercy for His approval, and just because God has mercy on you or someone in your family or someone else, doesn’t mean that He approves of our lives. (Some will say, “My dad did it and he turned out okay.”)  And if we know that, if we know that we were doing something sketchy, something that really wasn’t within the will of God, and we got away with it in our own mind thinking; “We got away with it and God blessed it…”  Really inside of us we know something is wrong and we need to CORRECT IT, we need to apologize for things that we have done that were wrong before God and others, and make sure that we correct those things that are not right before God.  We need to correct our mistakes. 

              I want to encourage you as brothers and siters in the Lord to stay humble.  Don’t think that following God is just about correct doctrine, getting in a good bible study, knowing the bible more, searching up more things on the internet… it’s not about sensations, it’s not about just knowing things about God, knowing the bible, getting in a good Christian gathering, a good Christian circle, IT’S ABOUT HUMILITY, LOVE, RIGHTEOUSNESS, PEACE, HONORING GOD WITH OUR LIFE.  And if we have THOSE characteristics because we are seeking FIRST the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, THEN He can work with us.  But God turns His eye away from those that are prideful and arrogant, who think that they are self-entitled do everlasting life.  Most Christians are FULL OF PRIDE, they are full of arrogance, they are full of themselves.  They could care less about the Kingdom of God and His righteousness and serving others.  Are we truly humble servants before the LORD?  Are we where we are supposed to be, not thinking much of ourselves, saying; “I want Jesus to become MORE, and I want myself to become less.”?  Is that where we are today as brothers and sisters?  May the grace of Jesus be with you.
