The days that we’re living people are being seared, they are receiving that 666 on their hand and on their forehead and we’re reaching the point of NO RETURN. If you are hearing this message and your heart is still soft towards the truth YOU NEED TO REPENT, come out of your sins and receive Jesus Christ, otherwise there will be no hope. There is no hope for the world. There is no hope in satan’s kingdom, in the antichrist, the only hope is in JESUS CHRIST. Many people are still trying to pull themselves together, they are trying to do the best they can in the world to achieve their own security, their own safety. What’s interesting is the mark of the beast, 666, (Revelation) explicitly says that it is the mark of MEN. So, you could think it is the mark of satan, the mark of the beast, which is all true, BUT IT IS THE MARK OF MEN. (mark of a man: Revelation 13:18 Why is 666 the mark of men? Well, consider that on the 6th day is when man was created, and the farthest a man can achieve is a “6”. And the perfect man can be achieved by the DEVIL, the devil can make you LOOK perfect, that is why he is considered looking like an angel of light/righteousness (2 Corinthians 11:14-15) IT IS A DECEPTION! But the farthest you can go is a “6”, but you will never reach the 7th day. The 7th day is in JESUS CHRIST, it is the rest that Jesus gives us when we TRULY REPENT of our sins and come into HIS REST (Hebrews 4), when we receive HIS BLOOD (Revelation 7:14) to atone for our sins (1 John 2:1-2) and when we trust HIM and start living by FAITH (Hebrews 11:6). No one can enter HIS rest unless they overcome number 6, most people stay in the 6th day, the day that is the day of a MAN. sATAN will work with that, he will make people try to be the BEST man they possibly can be. What can man achieve? They can achieve great riches, they can achieve what they think is health, safely and security, pleasure, ALL the things that sATAN can offer you. BUT WHERE DOES IT LEAD? IN THE END IT LEADS TO DEATH! Will we OVERCOME 666? Will we overcome and NOT be seared? Many people have a seared conscience, they refuse to repent. (1 Timothy 4:2) They continually go back to the merchants (of Rev 18:15) and the things of the world, the pleasures of the flesh, the lusts of the flesh. They are trying to secure their lives in the WORLD, (Luke 17:33) it is the MARK OF MEN. Will you have the seal of the Holy Spirit (Ephesians 1:13-14) or will you be seared with 666?
Praise Jesus again to day guys because the Lord Jesus is working in His children and He is really calling people OUT of the world and making a huge difference between those who are His sheep, His children and those who are make-believers and those who are not really going with the LORD. One thing that I have been getting a bunch of emails about and questions about is how, people will ask, “How do I stop looking at pornography, how do I stop doing this certain sin and how do I go forward with Jesus…” and I have one standard answer for everyone and that is YOU HAVE TO MAKE UP YOUR MIND TO GO WITH JESUS. He’s not going to make up your mind for you. It’s your choice if you are going to turn a 180 away from the world, if you are going to go the way of the LORD or if you are going to go the way of the world, if you are going to go the way of sin. People waver because they are still wavering in darkness, they are wondering if it will be worth it to follow Jesus. But our entire life is but just a speck, such a small amount of time, even if you live to be 80 years old, compare that to ETERNITY. Eternity is FOREVER and either we will be eternally with Jesus in heaven or we will be eternally in HELL. And people are willing to sacrifice so much for maybe just 20 years and then they pass away. I had a co-worker who just a few days ago passed away, and it’s sad to see people reject God, THEY HAVE NO HOPE. If you reject Jesus and you die you have NO HOPE. The Lord’s not going to let you come back after you are fully dead. Man is given one life and then comes the judgment and if we are not prepared for all eternity we have made our destiny and we have made our destiny in hell. I encourage you to really make up your mind, you are going to choose while it is still this day who you will follow, if you will follow Jesus or if you are going to follow satan. And Jesus is not going to make up your mind, He’s not going to force you. Jesus will not say; “Hey, you have to follow me…” YOU have to make up your mind if you are going to follow Jesus Christ or if you are going to follow your flesh. So, stop looking at pornography, if you are looking at porn… get anything that is a hinderance OUT of your life. If your phone is causing you to stumble, what is that for your eternity. Is it worth having your phone for a little extra convenience to have your soul taken to HELL? Or is it worth getting rid of your phone if your phone is what is causing you to fall to pornography. What about your TV? People are just so addicted to technology and they are NOT using it for the glory of GOD, they are NOT using it for any good… what is it if you just get RID OF IT? You know we need to CUT OFF the arm of the FLESH, whatever is hindering us from entering the Kingdom of God we need to CUT THAT OFF, so that we can push our way into the Kingdom of God. The Kingdom of God suffers violence, that’s because satan is trying to steal it away from us. But the violent take it by FORCE. If we’re going to push our way into the Kingdom of God we are going to have to forcefully RESIST satan and his kingdom. We can’t do it like sissies, we can’t just do it relaxed and falling asleep, we have to be warriors for the Kingdom of God and the ONLY what that happens is if we are filled with the HOLY SPIRIT and if we get EVERY OUT of our life that is hindering us. Don’t let anything stop you or hinder you. But no one is going to convince you to follow Jesus until YOU have convinced yourself it is the right way to go. Unless you MAKE UP YOUR MIND to follow Jesus and that NOTHING ELSE MATTERS you are still going to be pursuing things of this world. Ultimately you are going to get exactly what you want, exactly what you are looking for. And if the desire of your heart is actually seeking after the pleasures of the world, after the things that satan can give you, in the end you are going to get what your heart desired, you are going to get satan. Do we want satan to be our father? Do we want to make ourselves our OWN god and do we want our end ultimately to be hell? Or do we want to resist, do we want to overcome? I want to overcome this world because this world has nothing for a child of God. Jesus’s children have nothing in this word. We have to RESIST the world, we have to resist the worldly. We have to resist sinful people, temptations. The only way to enter into the Kingdom of God is if we resist and OVERCOME. It’s not easy, it’s actually impossible. But with Jesus Christ all things are possible and we WILL overcome, but we have to make up our mind to. Your parents aren’t going to make up your mind, the culture certainly isn’t going to make up your mind, YOU are going to have to make up your mind if you’re going to follow Jesus, take up your cross daily or if you’re going to go YOUR way and if you are going to perish in your sins. It’s your decision if you will pick up your cross and follow the LORD with ALL OF YOUR MIGHT. I just want to encourage the true brothers and sisters to fight the good fight. We have to set it in our hearts and in our minds to live for Jesus EVERY DAY. People say; “Well, I would die for Jesus, I would die for you Lord…” Well will you LIVE for Him? Will you die to your SINS today? “Oh, now, I can’t do that…” You start to have a debate in your own heart, a debate with Jesus. It’s like you’re telling God, “I’ll die for you, but I won’t live for you, I won’t stand up for you, but I’ll die for you…” How can you die for your KING if you will not LIVE for Him today? Every day is a choice. Every day is a choice to live holy, to live righteous or to fall into sin, and there are 1 million ways to fall into sin…… (We all know what it’s like to fall into sin and be stuck) We have to SEEK FIRST the righteousness of GOD. As soon as we wake up we have to wake up PRAYING. We have to wake up resisting the devil, putting 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 ready to bring the gospel of peace. Are we prepared for the battle, for this war? Are we prepared or will we be easily cut down and destroyed by the enemy because we are not on that firm foundation of Jesus Christ? Are you ready for the attacks that will come? Or are you going to fall to lukewarmness, to laziness and to all the temptations that satan can bring? Will you stand strong in these times and overcome or will you fall to evil? YOU NEED TO MAKE UP YOUR MIND! May the grace of Jesus be with you.
Should You Expect Tongues Immediately After Baptism?
Praise Jesus today guys. I want to make a short message just about being filled with the Holy Spirit, the Holy Spirit baptism and speaking in tongues. Now, some people really are deceived by this, or rather they have a misunderstanding, not a misunderstanding that leads to sin, but a misunderstanding that leads them to confusion and then just to be sad and discouraged, because their view is that as soon as they are baptized in water and come out of that water that they will be speaking in a tongue and on top of that, some of these people think that they have to be baptized by the right guy, and they think that there’s kind of a magic or a supernatural in the man that baptizes them and in the act of being baptized alone. And that is just not true. If you put your faith in men and if you put your faith in baptism itself you’re going to be really discouraged because you are going to come out of that water and you’re not going to be speaking in a tongue, and you are going to be thinking, “What happened? Was I not genuine? Was the man who baptized me not genuine? Was the water not special enough?” and I see this happen… Here’s the thing, in short, you WILL speak in tongues when you are baptized, but it’s not cookie cutter. Christians think everything is going to happen in this “cookie cutter” (all the same) way; first you believe, you have faith, you hear the Holy Spirit, you’re baptized, and then you come out of the water and you speak in tongues, you are a new creation… For me it didn’t happen exactly like that. For me when I received the Holy Spirit, just like it says in Joel, I had dreams and visions. The prophet Joel said that the old men would have dreams and the young men would have visons. I had both dreams and visions. And I did start speaking in tongues, but the tongues that I started speaking in first was of the Lord for me to speak to my church. The Lord wanted me to speak to people IN MY CHURCH about His truth and that had to happen in my native tongue. They wouldn’t have understood anything if I spoke in an angelic prayer language. So, I went out and I spoke to all my friends, my neighbors, I was getting on Facebook and I was sending people letters, telling them about TRUE repentance. That was my new tongue. When we really come to Jesus and receive the Holy Spirit and we are baptized then we do speak in a new tongue, but let’s talk about what that new tongue is. That new tongue is the new language that comes from the Holy Spirit to you to speak FOR THE GLORY OF GOD, whether it is a prayer langue, an unknown language or a known language, but supernatural in that it is coming from the Holy Spirit to rebuke, to chastise, to discipline, to correct, to lead people into the TRUTH OF GOD. It is supernatural but not necessarily a tongue that people will not understand. It might be. It may be a prayer language, but it may also be like how mine was when I repented and that was to correct the church, to speak the truth to people that they may also come out and repent in these times. It’s not a “cookie cutter” formula that you just are baptized in water and then you come out immediately and you are speaking in an angelic tongue, it’s not like that. We need to make sure that we are really submitted to the Holy Spirit and not putting our own ideas, our own formulas on God and thinking that He has to do it the way WE imagine. The Pentecostal church is the worst at that. They think that everything has to happen to their idea in church before THEIR alter. They think they lay hands on people, that they have to get better, they have to receive a tongue… Baptism and that water represents DYING to yourself, it represents DEATH. There is nothing special about the death of the water. What is special is that Jesus is giving you NEW LIFE, He is becoming your Teacher. And what is awesome is that you are laying your life down before Him and He is going to change you and make you into that person that HE wants you to be. But you can’t twist God’s arm and make Him make you speak in tongues in a way that you have seen others do. You cannot make Him give you the spiritual gifts that you have seen others have. You can’t make Him give you a dream or make Him give you a vision. You have to wait upon the Lord because HE truly is the Master and we are the servants. And we cannot manipulate and force the Master to do ANYTHING for us. We have to humble ourselves before the Master and just believe Him, trust Him, have faith in Him, that He will lead us and guide us and give us all the spiritual gifts that we need in time. But are we being faithful with what He has given us? If we have a bit of faith, are we being faithful with what we know we need to do to be faithful to GOD? Do we trust Him? When we know we need to get out of a certain area to repent, to apologize, are we being faithful to repent of the things we need to repent of and to apologize to the people who we have wronged? Are we being faithful to the things that we KNOW we need to do, or are we just looking for things that we perceive that will be supernatural to the world and then upset at God because He didn’t act according to our will? We need to make sure that we are just truly humble before the Lord and doing the things that HE calls us to do. It’s not a formula, every single person is unique and different. But we do need to be baptized in water. We do need to be filled with the Holy Spirit. We need to go from death to life. And we need to speak in our new tongue. The gift of the Holy Spirit is not for a select few people. The gift of the Holy Spirit is for ALL who will believe on the name of Jesus Christ, who will REPENT and who want the guidance of the Holy Spirit. It’s FOR YOU! The power of the Holy Spirit is for YOU. He is alive. The Holy Spirit will guide you. He is our Teacher. Will you receive the Holy Spirit? Will you let Him guide you the way that HE knows is best for you? Or will you just go around like many of the Christians who want to see a sign and a wonder and they are really trying to control God to do it the way THEY want? maybe to impress themselves, maybe to impress the world, maybe they have watched other Christians and they want to mimic them. With the Holy Spirit He’s not like that. He is unique, He is a different Spirit, unlike any other spirit in this world. He is supernatural, but He will be YOUR guide He will be YOUR Teacher, you won’t be His teacher. So, will you humble before Him and start learning from the Spirit of GOD in SPIRIT and in TRUTH? Will you listen with the ears of your conscience in the bottom of your soul? Or will you try to control God and be His teacher and tell HIM how things are done? May the grace of Jesus be with you.
