Because The World Appears Unstable

13 Oct

Everywhere we turn today it appears our world is very unstable. I suppose if we all still rode horses this world be a lot more stabilized. Personally as an equestrian I believe Sir Winston Churchill was correct when he said “There is something about the outside of a horse that is good for the inside of a man.”

But seriously these are indeed frightful times as more and more people are realising all the signs that Jesus warned us about in places like Matthew 24 are now actually taking place. Many people are now experiencing a sense that globally things are rather spiraling out of control. For all those who voted in elected leaders that wanted to see changes made we are seeing them unfolding at a alarming rate today. We read in Isaiah 5:20, “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!” We are seeing this played out now as dangerous agendas are being put in place. As more people are being appointed to offices of influence and power that go against Biblical Christian values. So there is a sense of uncertainty about what will happen tomorrow and in the near future. The devil has a sinister agenda which includes false flag staged events and schemes to implement mass confusion along with lying signs and wonders. 2 Thessalonians 2:9,”Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, 10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.”

Do you think most Christians study to show themselves approved? Are Christians safe from being deceived if they are not grounded in the Word of God? How many Christians in the modern church today are Biblically grounded enough to be able to withstand any so called scientific “proof” that may appear in future that says God is not who He says He is? The Lord warns us a there will be a great deception that will occur.
Matthew 24:24,” For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. How many church leaders today are helping to prepare and equip God’s people for these end times?”

There is a world wide sense of hopelessness and a feeling of being helpless to do anything about it. Dare I say au contraire my friends.  Because with God all things are possible and there is hope beyond hope in Jesus Christ of Nazareth, Messiah Yeshua. Amen.
How can I be so certain, how can I be so confident, because Jesus loves me this I know for the Holy Bible tells me so. Who would ever sail across the ocean or board an aircraft if the commander of the craft was unsure of the final destination? As a passenger on a journey through this present world its vital to know where your final destination will be in the world to come.
Clearly the Holy Scriptures tell us it shall be either Heaven or Hell. For example the Lord Jesus said in Mark 9:43,” And if thy hand offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into life maimed, than having two hands to go into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched:44 Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.45 And if thy foot offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter halt into life, than having two feet to be cast into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched:46 Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.47 And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out: it is better for thee to enter into the kingdom of God with one eye, than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire:48 Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.”

If you are a doer of the Word and keep the commandments of the Lord Jesus your arrival in heaven is absolutely guaranteed. Yes indeed this world is facing all sorts of serious problems today along with lying signs and wonders, false messiahs, earthquakes and famines and wars and rumours of wars. However, what we are facing isn’t anything new. Ever since the devil tricked Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden there have been many wars and assorted breakdowns in relationships. There have been all sorts of threats and acts of terrorism as invisible disembodied evil spirits were unleashed to manifest themselves in anyone willing to allow them to act out their evil expressions through them. We must share the Gospel because too many people are not yet understanding that not every thought you have and entertain is your own thoughts.

Throughout the history of this world there has been episodes of unimaginable violent acts and horrour’s. What did God’s people do about it? They did the only thing that can alter and change things in this world, they prayed in obedience to the Word of God. It is time to fast and pray and humble ourselves before the living God of all creation. How can we even worship the Lord unless we are willing to humble ourselves?
You can make a great difference as you understand how the Lord will fight your battles for you. Exodus 14:14, “The LORD shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace.”
In other words you don’t need to hold a political position or have great financial wealth and influence on earth. What is important is your sincere prayers touch the heart of God and influence things in heaven. Evidence in the Bible shows us God can change His mind, just as Moses help persuade God not to destroy the Jewish people. Or how Jesus mother Mary stood in faith and even after Jesus said to her,” its not my time yet,” he ended up performing a miracle of turning water into wine.
Or for another example, how that women’s faith moved the hand of God so Jesus healed her daughter recorded in Matthew 15: Jesus told her at this time he was only come to heal the Jewish people and when she said,” but even yet the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from their masters’ table.’ it moved the Lord to act on her behalf.  In Matthew 15:28, “Then Jesus answered and said unto her, O woman, great is thy faith: be it unto thee even as thou wilt. And her daughter was made whole from that very hour. ”
What happens in the spiritual effects the physical and what happens in the physical effects the spiritual. The prayers of the righteous will change the world! James 5:16 “Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.” After you repent of your own sins and forgive everyone including yourself and the Lord washes you clean from all unrighteousness. Then you can do Mark 11:24,”Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.”

The great deception is all set up for those who will not obey. 2 Thessalonians 2:10,”And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:” Therefore we need to stay in Christ’s love no matter how things may look presently, as we are to keep walking in faith not by sight. Keeping in mind that without faith it is impossible to please the Lord.

The Lord Jesus told us in Matthew 28:19, “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: 20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.” In other words Jesus said, “Go and make disciples…” What do disciples do? Since the Lord Jesus first commissioned and gave the original disciples permission to use some of His awesome power to preach the Gospel, heal the sick and cast out demons, and then to help transfer that power to continually make more disciples in each succeeding generation.
There has always been a true remnant carrying on the work of the Lord Jesus throughout history. Doing John 14:12
For example that the Lord gave us as disciples in Luke 10:19,” Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.”
This means you have amazing authority in Jesus/Yeshua’s name. In these last days we really must do what we are called to do here. Hebrews 12:27,” And this word, Yet once more, signifieth the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken may remain.”
This refers to the renovation of the Heaven and earth, because at the end of the millennium all those things that came in with the curse and all those unholy man made things which need to go will be vanquished so the Lord may remain and enjoy what He wants here eternally in holiness.
Because the Bible clearly tells us, — if there is no repentance, there is no true salvation. Jesus said, “I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.” (Luke 13:3)
When ever you begin to minister to someone one of the best places to start is with helping them understand about spirits of un-forgiveness and bitterness.( See Matthew 18) Because if they are not willing to forgive those who hurt them somewhere, somehow recently or in the distance past and repent to Papa God for allowing that bitterness to enter into their hearts we are not going to get very far in ministry in any dimension. Because if this is not dealt with first nothing much is going to happen. To repent means to turn away from your sinful ways and begin to think and see things from a Godly perspective. 1 Corinthians 2:16, “For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.”
If we profess and claim to belong to the Lord then we better start acting like a child of God all the time, instead of a child of the devil when things don’t go as we hoped. John 14:26 ,”But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.” Therefore if the Holy Spirit is in you and able to teach you and guide you in all truth then it is certainly possible we can get holy before the Lord and then help minister the Gospel of Christ in love. I believe God said what He means and He means what He said. 1 Peter 1:16,”Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.”

All things are possible with God! I pray the Lord’s supernatural peace, healing, provision and protection cover you always with oceans of agape love in the almighty name of Jesus/Yeshua!
