All Preachers of the Gospel are Commanded by the Lord to Preach True Repentance Part 1

2 Jun

We have many promises in our Holy Guide Book to the Supernatural, however the promise of God appear to all be conditional and this is where the superficial modern type churches depart from the faith. Scripture warns us about this parting of the ways and those who would try and come against the Lord’s supernatural church in the end times.
2 Timothy 4:3,” For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;” You can become rather popular it appears if you just tell people what they want to hear, and preach that it is not necessary for believers in Jesus Christ to ever repent of their sins because “sin is automatically forgiven.”
However we read 2 Timothy 2:1,” Thou therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus.
2 And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also. 3 Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ. 4 No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier.”
We are called to battle the enemy of our souls and that means enduring some difficult times it means dealing with some suffering in training as any solider discovers and we have been called to be a good soldier of Christ Jesus. Considering also that no one serving as a soldier gets entangled in civilian affairs, but rather tries to please his commanding officer and simply obey the instructions given.

The Pastor’s job description is clearly defined in the Holy Bible. One of the primary things pastors are called to do is to correct people when they are heading down a wrong pathway and to encourage true repentance.
Because all preachers of the Gospel are commanded by the Lord to preach repentance, understanding that healing and restoration being by sanctification of the heart.
Luke 13:5,” I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.”

It is indeed true as you study the Holy Word of God to show yourself approved that there are numerous verses of Scripture that speak of the promise of salvation, with no mention of repentance. For example Acts 16:31,” And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.”

Romans 10:9,” That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.”
However, we want to be like the Bereans ( Acts 17:11) and make sure and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so. We read in 2 Timothy 2:15,” Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”
Because we also clearly see that sins and iniquities in our life and in our generation are playing a part in hindering us or separating us from the blessings and promises of the Lord.
There are many professing believers in the body of Christ who have rather worldly perspectives and have sadly been taught and programmed that once they are saved they are free from the influences of the kingdom of darkness. Many also act as if the Old Testament is no longer valid as we are under a new and better covenant.
So what do they do with verses where the Lord Jesus/Yeshua said things like in Matthew 5:17,”Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.”
Under Moses things like adultery and murder were against the law, in the new and better covenant these things are still against the law. How can a Holy God bless you in your sins, since all sin separates you from God? Even entertaining the spirit of fear separates you when you bow down to it and worry about things. It also releases toxic chemicals into your blood stream which breaks down your immune system and is the root issue behind my sicknesses and diseases.
We read in Isaiah 59:1,” Behold, the LORD’s hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear:2 But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear.”
Jeremiah 5:25,”Your iniquities have turned away these things, and your sins have withholden good things from you.” Psalm 66:18,” If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me:”

As I have said before your heart cannot lie, your heart will give you the result of what you have taken in and stored in it. Your brain however can apparently lie to yourself, because the response is a conscious choice. You are able to choose life or death, blessings or curses. It appears to me this is why the Scriptures repeatedly state in a number of places that God judges people by their hearts.
1 Samuel 16:7,” But the LORD said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him: for the LORD seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the LORD looketh on the heart.”

So the bottom line is simply this without repentance from sin, without turning away from wicked things and sinful thoughts we can not have proper fellowship with our Holy God. As long as we continue to fellowship and entertain unclean spirits we are in trouble. As long as we continue to entertain such spirits as unforgiveness, self-bitterness, self-hatred; doubt and unbelief; lack of trust in God in His abilities to heal and restore and bless you, as long as we continue to entertain such spirits accusation; generational occultism; ungodly grief and sorrow and are critical of others and ourselves we are as dead in our trespasses and sins until we forsake them through repentance, and get our minds renewed or we cannot truly be made alive in Christ.
Ephesians 2:1,” And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins;
2 Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:
3 Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.
4 But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us,
5 Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)
6 And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:”
It may be time you practice getting back into your proper seats together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus. The reason God invited repentance was so we could use it and get free. The Lord tells us about living a life that is glorifying to Christ and that means forsaking the worlds ways. We read about “repentance unto life” in Acts 11:18,” When they heard these things, they held their peace, and glorified God, saying, Then hath God also to the Gentiles granted repentance unto life.”
The moment we turn from our sin to our Saviour we are going to be blessed. Isn’t this the reason why the Lord had the Apostle Paul preached “repentance toward God, and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ” as we read in Acts 20:21,”Testifying both to the Jews, and also to the Greeks, repentance toward God, and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ.”
The Lord sent John the Baptist to help pave the way for Jesus and John the Baptist began his ministry saying “repent.”  Matthew 3:1,”In those days came John the Baptist, preaching in the wilderness of Judaea,2 And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”
In fact lets reason this all together what did the Lord Jesus first preach when he went public but “repent” Matthew 4:17,” From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”
Jesus warned all those who would listen that without repentance, they would perish as we read in places like Luke 13:3,” I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.”
How interesting to observe today that so many of the modern popular type churches have departed from this basic understanding.
If just believing in Jesus Christ of Nazareth is all that is necessary to spend eternity with God for salvation, then I reckon the logical conclusion here is that no one needs ever repent. There are now some very popular preachers offering this sort of false doctrine.
However, we read in James 2:19,”Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.,”
Just because you believe in God is not proof that you are justified by faith, because the demons believe without justification.
Our Holy Guide Book to the Supernatural tells us that a false convert “believes” and yet is not saved. In Luke 8 Jesus gave us a parable about how seeds are planted and grow and shared how that the seed is the living word of God.
Luke 8:13,”They on the rock are they, which, when they hear, receive the word with joy; and these have no root, which for a while believe, and in time of temptation fall away. In other words this is a person who just believes actually remains a “worker of iniquity.” Because they are a hearer only and not a doer of the Word. They may go to the modern type seeker friendly church on Sunday and hear a feel good tick your ear message and be entertained with all the trappings of a London’s west end production. But they leave the same way the came in and live like heathens the rest of the week until they are entertained once again the following Sunday.
They are deceived, and need to hear the true Gospel. I have personally ministered over the years to numerous victims of the modern seeker friendly churches. For example, I have had to minister several young unwed mothers who grew up as part of the seeker friendly churches. I rest my case.

James 1:22,” But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.

How many people are attending churches today, especially in those popular type modern tickle their ear churches that fit into this category? They go to church yet no real godly changes are being made within their hearts because although they profess to believe they run after the things of this world.
They are deceiving themselves, thinking they can continue to live in sin and expect to be saved and blessed by the Lord Jesus.
1 John 2:15,”Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.”

We have so many warning of this in the Holy Scriptures we better paid attention here for example 1 John 1:6,” If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth.”

In the Old Testament which is for our instructions in righteousness we have Proverbs 28:13,” He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy.’

Who really wants to confess their sins? Who would cause you to fear doing such a thing as going before the Lord who knows everything and confessing your sins before His throne of mercy, grace and love? Let us guess perhaps the kingdom of darkness is influencing you more then you may realise.
In fact the Lord says to get healed we ought to be able to confess our sins before one another. Today that is probably more difficult in the modern churches that would imagine because they will probably shun you for admitting you made mistakes.
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.”
I pray you find a church family where it is always a safe place to go before the Lord and deal with the real issues of your life. Considering that the Lord Jesus said that there was joy in heaven over one sinner who “repents” as we read in Luke 15:10,” Likewise, I say unto you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repenteth.” Now if there is NO true repentance, there is NO joy because there is No salvation.
We read how Peter preached on the Day of Pentecost, he instructed all those there to repent “for the remission of sins” Acts 2:38,” Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.”
Obviously then without true repentance, there is no remission of sins and no gifts of the Holy Ghost.
Peter went on to say in Acts 3:19,” Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord.”
Are we still under we a time when God will one day pour out His wrath?
Who then can be saved and converted unless we truly repent from our hearts? Papa God “commands all people everywhere to repent”, which leaves absolutely no exceptions.
Acts 17:30,” And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent:”
If repentance wasn’t absolutely necessary for our salvation, can anyone explain why the Lord Jesus commanded that repentance be preached to all nations? Luke 24:47,” And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.”

Throughout the Holy Scriptures we read again and again of the necessity of repentance for salvation, this to me begs the question how can those who preach this modern day message of grace on steroids and salvation without repentance lead anyone to Christ? It makes them rather suspect that they themselves are strangers to repentance, and true conversion. The Lord told us to judge them by their fruit and just because they gain popularity is no reason to think that is good fruit. For example when you meet people from some of these modern entertainment type churches they appear rather worldly and superficial. They know virtually nothing about casting out demons and healing the sick, which is one of the first commandments the resurrected Lord Jesus told his followers to do in Mark 16:15-20

Clearly in both the Old and New Testaments it say “repentant and be saved”
2 Corinthians 7:10,” For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of: but the sorrow of the world worketh death.”
In other words Godly sorrow that works repentance to salvation changes your life and cleanses it from all manner of sin.
Romans 1:17,” For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.
18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;
19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.
20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:”
The whole world is guilty and there is no excuse now for not understanding or remaining ignorant of the invisible things that influence and effect us here in the visible world.

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!

End Times and The Doomsday Preppers

29 May

Clearly our Holy Guide Book to the Supernatural warns us about invisible spirits that project toxic sinful ideas and thoughts.  2 Corinthians 10:3,”For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;”

The battle begins in our mind, as we have to continually deal with thousands of thoughts a day and not every thought you have is your own or good for you. The enemy of our souls is constantly working at sending toxic thoughts our way. The devil uses people and the media to try and bring you into a place of entertaining the spirit of fear as a fisherman might lure fish with his bate.

If you speak with someone who understands prophetically what is unfolding before us today whether they are a pre-tribe, mid- tribe or post-tribe, or give you that evasive answer and say they are a “panologist,” meaning that it will all pan out in the end somehow. The result is still similar because there is too much evidence the world is declining in morality and in government. Do you remember when the new world order was just called a conspiracy theory? So often I find that someone calling some thing a conspiracy theory is a way of discrediting some ones ideas and research. That person who discredits a conspiracy theory must be like a psychic, because they know all the answers without actually looking at the data and research someone else has done.

Still we must ask ourselves the bottom line, which is are we going about our daily life talking care of business, or are we doing what we ought to be doing as born again spirit-filled believers and taking care of God’s business? Sharing the Gospel, healing the sick and casting out demons in the almighty name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth- Messiah Yeshua. John 14:12,”Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.”

If we simply look at our local governments for an example they seem to employ certain smear campaigns against their opponents to win elections  and then it just keeps escalating up to the more powerful forms of governments from there. Purposely putting out misinformation and disinformation, to help bring you into a place of entertaining the spirit of fear, as we observe the world in decline and the new world order trying to emerge.

Then we have to deal with all the Doomsday Preppers people who otherwise probably live ordinary lives but now instead are preparing for the end of the world as we know it. Consumed by the idea of there will soon be no buying or selling without the mark of the beast. Here is the bottom line as I see it, what does Scripture tell us to do?
Matthew 6:33,” But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.”
So the best preparations therefore according to the Holy Scriptures is spending time with the Lord. So we learn to be sensitive to the leading of the Holy Spirit in all things. After all the Lord Jesus said, John 10:27,” My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:28 And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.”

There were probably some Doomsday Preppers that lost everything in the Katrina, I mean I am just saying that this all reminds me of the parable Jesus gave in Luke 12:16,” And he spake a parable unto them, saying, The ground of a certain rich man brought forth plentifully: 17 And he thought within himself, saying, What shall I do, because I have no room where to bestow my fruits?
18 And he said, This will I do: I will pull down my barns, and build greater; and there will I bestow all my fruits and my goods.
19 And I will say to my soul, Soul, thou hast much goods laid up for many years; take thine ease, eat, drink, and be merry.
20 But God said unto him, Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee: then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided? 21 So is he that layeth up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.
22 And he said unto his disciples, Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat; neither for the body, what ye shall put on. 23 The life is more than meat, and the body is more than raiment.
24 Consider the ravens: for they neither sow nor reap; which neither have storehouse nor barn; and God feedeth them: how much more are ye better than the fowls? 25 And which of you with taking thought can add to his stature one cubit?
26 If ye then be not able to do that thing which is least, why take ye thought for the rest? 27 Consider the lilies how they grow: they toil not, they spin not; and yet I say unto you, that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
28 If then God so clothe the grass, which is to day in the field, and to morrow is cast into the oven; how much more will he clothe you, O ye of little faith? 29 And seek not ye what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink, neither be ye of doubtful mind.
30 For all these things do the nations of the world seek after: and your Father knoweth that ye have need of these things.
31 But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto you.
32 Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.
33 Sell that ye have, and give alms; provide yourselves bags which wax not old, a treasure in the heavens that faileth not, where no thief approacheth, neither moth corrupteth.
34 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.”

I say all this because we need to understand according to place like Deuteronomy 30:19, Papa God has given us the power to choose life or death, blessings or curses. How does this play out in our thought life, how does this effect our brains and the release of chemicals in our bodies? Keeping in mind, you control your brain, your brain does not control you.
We must realise that Papa God created us in His Image (Genesis 1:26). We were created to live forever and to operate in perfection to live a life that is glorifying to the Lord. Matthew 5:48,” Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.”

We are all ‘wired for love’, and the enemy of our souls has been trying to tamper with the wiring in a number of sinister ways to short circuit us by first bringing us into toxic thinking. Making good choices brings health and happiness in this fallen world as we align ourselves with the Holy Word of God.
We must understand this, Romans 6: 22,” But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life.
23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
If we make bad choices and sin it brings us into a place of death. We are not designed to die but live forever. Psalm 118:17,” I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the LORD.”
All those proteins that we help build strongholds for the devil in our brains come as a result of bad choices, which leads to toxic thought life and quite simply this is not actually normal. Just look for example of how well this is working for people who are attracted to abnormal behaviours and lifestyles. Doing addictive things with drinking, drugging, smoking and sexing.
Our body treats these toxic proteins as foreign invaders that eventually leads to inflammations causing sickness and eventually disease. The Lord designed everyone with a knower thingy where you know right from wrong, its just that so many times the enemy of our souls has tried to find ways to help you justify your bad choices and sins.
The way to make good choices each day is to stay in the Word of God so that the Holy Word of God stays in you. Because we shall reap what we sow. Galatians 6:7,” Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.8 For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.9 And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.
If you plant tomatoes don’t expect to reap corn and if you planted the spirits of doubt and unbelief you shall have to dig that up and replant yourself with faith. If you planted stress and the spirit of fear, you shall have replant yourself with faith.

It starts by implanting God’s Word in our minds and souls. According to places like James 1:21,” Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls.” If the implanted Word’ saves our souls I dare say it will also help you stay healthy and strong in the Lord. As we sow the seed of God’s Word 1 Peter 1:23,”Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.”
This is part of having our minds are renewed Romans 12:1,” I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”
Renewing our minds to the Holy Word of God cause all those in good proteins to be built up in our brains and this will cause you to maintain good mental and physical health. You shall then be able to make good choices, as you put Christ first in all things it also causes you to think healthy thoughts and live a life that is glorifying to God. So we love everyone as Christ loves us.
Ephesians 5:26,”That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word,”

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!

What Is The Lord Telling You To Do Today?

28 May

Everywhere we go and everywhere we look people are needing a touch from the Lord Jesus. We are all in a spiritual battle everyday and we must continue to fight the good fight of faith. Now just consider this, the Lord Jesus/Yeshua took some of the most unlikely people and did absolute great things through them. He made disciples out of some smelly old uneducated fisherman who he empowered and then commissioned them to go heal the sick and raise the dead and cleanse the lepers.
Then he sent out the 70 as we read in Luke 10:1,” After these things the Lord appointed other seventy also, and sent them two and two before his face into every city and place, whither he himself would come.”

After Jesus sent out the 70 believers, then he sent the rest of us in every preceding generation. When the disciples said to the Lord Jesus after seeing the multitude of crowds of people, “send these people away into the villages so they can find something to eat.” Jesus turn and said,” You feed them”, and all those 5000 men in the wilderness ate cooked fish and bread and that included all the women and children there, so there were perhaps as many as 8000 people or more that ate until the were all filled with only five loaves of bread, and two fishes. Then the disciples collected 12 baskets filled up with leftovers. Jesus also had compassion on everyone there and he healed everyone who was sick. (Matthew 14:13-21)
Jesus healed that paralyzed man and commanded him “Take up your bed and walk”, and then Jesus ruined a perfectly good funeral of that widows only son and commanded the corpse of that young man to come back to life and presented him alive to his mother. (Luke 7:11-17)
Jesus told his friend who was entombed 4 days in that grave, “Lazarus, come forth and Lazarus spirit obeyed and reentered his body. No one ever did the things Jesus did before and they all did just what Jesus said. Jesus told Peter to come and Peter walked on water.
Jesus commands the impossible and then makes it possible, because all things are possible with him! He is the same yesterday today and forever. That’s why we as true disciples of Christ we cannot lose. I remind you of Romans 14:8,” For whether we live, we live unto the Lord; and whether we die, we die unto the Lord: whether we live therefore, or die, we are the Lord’s.”
I do not know what you may be dealing with today, but I know my Lord Jesus still performs miracles and wants to heal, restore, use and bless you today and always as you align yourself with Christ in all things.
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.”

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!

Getting Answered Prayers

24 May

How many people today even in churches appear to be avoiding the Truth?
Which is really in essence condemning something before they have the opportunity to fully investigate the facts and in our case investigate the facts through the lens of the Holy Bible.
For example trying to explain to someone who is having health issues that the Bible tells us there is most likely a connection to some generational sins that have not been repented and dealt of, or some individual sins like entertaining a spirit of bitterness and fear, which is opposite faith and for whatsoever is not of faith is sin. (Romans 14:23)

We are actually just a bunch of chemicals supernaturally strung together as the Lord created us in this life. We also understand now that our thought life has a great deal to do with our overall well being. This is not mind over matter, it is simply obeying the Word of God. That medical research and science has confirmed 80% to 95% of all the illnesses that plague us today are a direct result of our thought life. Keeping in mind this is the reason the Lord told us all along to take every thought captive to Christ, because he loves us and wants us to understand what we think about affects us not just emotionally but physically. ( 2 Corinthians 10:5)

How often have we tried to explain what the Lord has said about blessings and curses to someone who has been programmed to believe the report of their doctor instead of the report of the Lord? “As a man thinketh so he is.”
Ignorance is not a blessing and we are encouraged of the Lord to be like the Berean’s and search the Scriptures to see whether these things be so.
Acts 17:11,” These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.”
I am at times perplexed how some people will tell me they believe God still heals today, but then convey the idea that he is NOT apparently interested in healing them!  Where would such a thought as that come from? Considering not every thought you have is your own.
Rather then studying the Holy Bible to research what the Lord actually tells us about receiving healing and restoration they will look at their present situation and its as a spirit of depression and self -pity overrides and clouds their perceptions and understanding. They don’t seem to be able see and understand you must believe it to receive it without entertaining the spirit of doubt and unbelief. It appears most people think when they see it they will believe it. The Lord says believe it first to see it.
May I remind you the Lord said in Matthew 21: 21,” Jesus answered and said unto them, Verily I say unto you, If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done.
22 And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.”
This is amazingly good news because the Lord Jesus has power to do whatsoever he said, and he promises the same sort of power to all true believers. For example how healing miracles were performed by the early church apostles and disciples? Just as today, people like the 70 disciples the Lord Jesus sent out two by two who came back reporting how the spirits had to obey them in Jesus name. Just ordinary people like us today filled with faith and supernatural power and baptised in the Holy Ghost. For example we read about Stephen in Acts 6:8,” And Stephen, full of faith and power, did great wonders and miracles among the people.”
As we read in the harmony of Scripture here in Mark 11:22,” And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God.
23 For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.
24 Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.
25 And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.
26 But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive your trespasses.”
So there is some things to consider here, if we don’t deal with the offenses first and forgive everyone including yourself that can hinder your prayers and ability to believe so you can have your prayers answered.
John 15:7,” If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.”
Now clearly this is a promise, the Lord tells us “ask what ye will and the Lord shall make it happen. So could we say that getting answered prayers is really up to meeting the conditions and requirements of the Lord. In other words it is up to you as a child of God as to what you want and what you need. A true believer can clearly get what they want as well as what they need. Because we ought to want what the Lord wants.

What you think with your mind changes your brain and body chemistry.
It’s really more about your attitude and not your DNA that determines your perceptions and much of the quality of the life you live. Best to live a life that is glorifying to Christ. Hebrews 13:15,”By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of [our] lips giving thanks to his name.”

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!

Holy temple with 100 rooms

16 May

Lets say you have a Holy temple with 100 rooms. In Revelation we read about a message the Lord Jesus is sending to the churches that have a word picture of Jesus standing there and knocking at the door of the church in Laodicea. I mean people use this to try and lead someone to faith in Christ and yet this is written to the church not the unbeliever. Revelation 3:14,” And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God; 15 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. 16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. 17 Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: 18 I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see. 19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.”

This image was not given to the church of Philadelphia because they were staying on the right path of holiness. This message was given to the churches full of lukewarm, pew sitting, worldly minded, compromising, ignoring the gifts Holy spirit, entertain me, tickle my ear type of believers. However, keep in mind that Laodiceans church, in all their error, in all their water down doctrines were still not far from the bottom line real thing. All they had to do was turn to Jesus, turn and open the door and that the Lord Jesus would come in.

We read in Revelation 3:20,” Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.” This is written to the believer not the unbeliever, yet how many try to use this verse to win someone to salvation? Jesus/Yeshua is saying you left him outside standing by your front door and He wants back inside.
Because whenever you feel like the Lord is not close it not the Lord Jesus who has left you. Just as the Lord Jesus did not abandon the Laodiceans church, rather they had left him. The Word is God is for us today, maybe someone reading this is not walking as close to Jesus as Jesus is walking close to them. Maybe someone can relate to this.

Just as the Holy Spirit of Christ was knocking on the door in Laodicea, I would say to every believer and every church that has lost their zeal for evangelism, the good news is you are not far from the Gospel Truth. Part of being an ambassador of Christ and helping to heal the sick and cast out demons in His almighty name is also helping to win souls to Christ. I would have to say that soul-winning must be a priority. Because the church of Jesus Christ is not a pleasure boat rather its a lifeboat upon the flooded waters of this fallen world. I am not against entertainers in church, but truly entertainers are not bringing the depth of the Gospel we all need. None of all those slick productions are really accomplishing what needs to be accomplished today in the modern churches. Keeping in mind there are absolutely no seeker friendly messages to be found anywhere in the Holy Guide Book to the Supernatural we call the Bible. Providing you have a real Bible and not some modern watered down version.

Personally I think we have entered a time of all hands on deck. Every spirit-filled true believer needs to be helping to win souls for Christ. Anyone who does not help in this end time harvest to save the lost is probably lost themselves. I’m just saying, you’ll know them by their fruits. Revelation 3:20,” Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. 21 To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne. 22 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.”

So if for example you had Holy temple with 100 rooms and one day you heard someone knocking on your front door. You look and see that it is the Lord Jesus and you quickly run and open the door and invite him in. Wouldn’t that be amazing, I mean you have to be absolutely thrilled at such an honoured visit. So you say,” Lord Jesus/Yeshua, my Lord and my King, please take the best room in my Holy Temple”, please take the main sanctuary as I am sure you will be most comfortable there.
It is in here that I pray to you and play praise and worship music to you and read your instructional manual. The Lord Jesus always being a gentleman’s gentlemen says, “thank you ever so much,” and is delighted to accept your most kind and gracious invitation. You bring him the best meal you can put together and there is much rejoicing and divine fellowship.

Then you hear another knock on the front door. You go and open the door and its the devil himself. You shout,” No devil you can not come in here’, and the devil pushes you aside with an evil defiant and sinister smile on his face and says, “I’m already in here”. You shout again,” No, no you can’t come in here”, and you forcible try and evict the devil. But its like he can read your mind to some degree and he starts sending you filthy temptations that have some pleasure for you mixed in it. The devil sends you toxic and negative imaginations as he starts working at activating all those old toxic memory trees in your mind, all those old strongholds you kept after you got born again. So soon your mind is showing you the most grievous sinful thoughts.

They are activating feelings and emotions you thought left you long ago when you got born again. I mean, in other words you are now having one really bad hair day in a nightmarish technicolour sort of way. Finally you start to pray and you manage to gain great strength as you do and so you are able to finally throw the devil out the front door, locking it as you do. You feel exhausted and then you remember Jesus is in your best room, the Lord is back there in your sanctuary. So you run in there and tell him what happen, and then you ask him why he didn’t he come and help you fight the devil? Jesus gently and lovingly tells you it is because you only gave him your best room, the sanctuary to stay in. You suddenly see the mistake you made and fall at his feet and say,” Lord please, please forgive me I have 99 rooms left. Let’s make it 50/50 now, Lord you can have 50 of my rooms in my Holy Temple .” Jesus always being a gentleman’s gentlemen says, “thank you ever so much” and is delighted to accept your most kind and new gracious new offer.

Its getting late and you say goodnight and go to sleep in one of your 50 rooms you still have complete control over. You are suddenly rudely awakened and realise the devil has somehow reentered and is in your room with you. Another battle ensues and you are totally exhausted before you manage to cast that devil out the door again. You go and find the Lord Jesus and ask him, “Why didn’t you come and help me fight the devil this time? The Lord being a gentlemen’s gentlemen says, “My dear precious friend, why don’t you give me your whole entire Holy Temple instead of just half of it, and let me fight all your battle for you, then instead of me staying with you as your guest, you can be my guest and stay with me?” So you realise what an awesome opportunity this is and quickly hand over the key of the front door of your holy temple to the Lord Jesus/Messiah Yeshua.

You finally said the word he has so long to hear. “Please be Lord Jesus the Lord over my entire life,” and you gave 100% of everything to the Lord Jesus. The next morning before the sun rises, someone is knocking at the front door again. I mean they are knocking like its a matter of life or death. They are knocking so hard the windows rattle and stuff is falling from the ceiling. You look out the window and see its that horrid beastly devil again and your feeling the spirit of fear emanating from him like you never experienced it before. Then suddenly you hear footsteps running through your Holy Temple. This is even better then when the cavalry shows up in the movies to recuse someone, for it is the Lord Jesus Himself, and He comes and stands in front of you and all you can do is stand in awe of his majesty and power as he reaches out and opens the front door. Jesus is holding the key of your holy temple in his mighty hands that still show the holes where the nails went through. Jesus stands there in all his glory which is simply overwhelming you. There is Jesus standing there in the front door protecting you as Jesus see it is the devil is standing out there. Immediately the devil bows down as low as he can bow and says,” I am so sorry Lord Jesus, I have obviously knocked on the wrong door again’, and the devil runs away as fast as he can. (James 4:7)

Have you made the Lord Jesus/Yeshua Lord over every part of your life? If he is only Lord over some of those 100 rooms that is problematic as a Christian. Some people have given the Lord Jesus 99 rooms in the Holy Temples of their life, but there is a sign on the door to room number 100 which says “Private – No entry”. That room contains all those hidden un-confessed sins. It where the spirit of deception dwells with all the other unclean spirits and things that they know Jesus would cast them out into the dry place if he is invited in.

So many believers sadly keep a room like that, so in essence they live a double life. Because in that room of sin are the very things that give the devil the legal right to keep knocking at your front door and finding ways of forcing his way into your life. we read in Matthew 10:30,” But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.” If God knows that he knows everything about you. Psalm 139:23,” Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts:’
We read in 1 John 3:20,” For if our heart condemn us, God is greater than our heart, and knoweth all things. 21 Beloved, if our heart condemn us not, then have we confidence toward God.”

1 Corinthians 10:20,” But I say, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils, and not to God: and I would not that ye should have fellowship with devils.” The Lord Jesus cannot ever be deceived. He knows absolutely everything about us. He knows what is happening in every room in our life all the time, even in those places that we try keep from him away from. Won’t you give him the entire Holy Temple of your life today. Give him everything there is to give, hold nothing back. Give the Lord Jesus every part of your holy temple. Allow him the freedom to do as he pleases and so you understand it is for your good that He wants to come in and remove all the filthy stuff and all the dirt, clean it up, get things into proper order for you to bless you. Because the Lord is totally Holy all the time, so it be nice to have him come and tidy us all up, open all the windows to let His glorious light and fresh air come in. 1 Corinthians 6:19,”What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?”

Philippians 1:6,” Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:”

The Lord Jesus wants every part of your life to be somewhere where he can come and stay and feel at ease. Let us invite him wholeheartedly to be Lord over every single part of our life.

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!

The Word Today is Confused

12 May

Most of the world is very confused today and many don’t study the Holy Bible to understand, because if they did they certainly overcome the confusion. The Atheist want to challenge us and argue that the ancient mystery religions are much older than Christianity, because apparently they simply don’t understand that the Old Testament is also part of Christianity. There is so much misinformation and disinformation purposely put out in the world today, however we read in 1 Corinthians 14:33,” For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.” So clearly the devil has made a great effort to confuse the facts and lead as many astray as he can, that today many colleges are now filled with professors teaching erroneous theories as facts, as they have done with things like evolution and then claim Christianity stole its ideas from the ancient Egyptians mystery religions. With such absurd claims as the Biblical accounts of Jesus were simply a plagiarizations of the Egyptian Sun-god Horus. So sorry to disappoint the Atheist once again, however Horus was NOT crucified, was NOT buried for 3 days, and thus, was NOT resurrected! The sources of these new age accounts are simply wrong and have birthed all sorts of apologetic debates at universities today.

So here we are watching things unfolding as the Lord said would happen, and I find it rather curious that some studies show that 87 percent of Americans are supposedly professing Christians and yet we are still dealing with abortion on demand; we have no-fault divorces available, we have more pornography and perversions then ever before in film, television and internet; we have the alternative lifestyles and its agenda that appears to be attacking the nation from every angle. So marriage now can be between three or more people of the same sex, or even people and animals. What is next people married to Nehilim or robots? Even adultery is now apparently considered normal by mainstream; we have all of these things going on like dark shadows that have fallen across the nation and we have allowed this by keeping quiet and not being doers of the Word. ( James 1:22)
We have allowed demonic ideologies to take hold of our universities and our public school systems whilst the church for the most part sits silently and just builds bigger seeker friendly churches where nothing much supernatural is happening according to places like Mark 16:15-20. By the way there are no seeker friendly messages anywhere to be found in the entire Holy Bible so who do think has encouraged such churches to exist today? If this is really your best life now, what shall your life in the next world be?

These are unprecedented times in which we live, providing you are understanding the ancient Biblical prophecy unfolding before us as true Spirit- Filled believers.
All these interesting things going on round the world today can also be rather distracting as we carry on traveling on this narrow path of Holiness. There is so much information, speculation and disinformation we have bombarding us each day. Wars, rumours of wars, earthquakes, famines, false prophets, apostasy in the tickle my ear popular churches, who are ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth because they deny the power of the Holy Spirit today. Which may also be why you never see anyone healed and delivered in those sorts of places which is what the Lord Jesus/Yeshua called His church to do as the church.
There are incredible technological advances we are becoming aware of that sound like total science fiction today. The reality of the transhumism movement, along with the devils lying signs and wonders, the UFO manifestations, orbs, gene slicing and cloning, laboratories carrying out experiments for the pharmaceutical industry on half human/half animal, perhaps like as in the days of Noah I dare say. People starting to uncover the idea of shadow governments. And yet as Christians one things is crystal clear to me, and that is we have many people walking about who need to make a solid connection with the Lord Jesus/Yeshua. They need healing and restoration, they need miracles to happen in their life, they need a spiritual encounter with the eternal living Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth. Considering we could have been born at any other time in all of history, however the Lord foresaw you before the world was made and planned for you to be here for such a time as this to help share the Kingdom of God and Christ’s awesome love.
Let me remind you of this Luke 21:28,” And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.”
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!

Celebrating Outstanding Mothers This Day

11 May

Mary the Mother of Jesus Christ of Nazareth was certainly someone we should study as an example of motherhood. What an amazing women and mother, what an amazing person of spiritual integrity.

We read in Luke 1:30,” And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God.” How did she find favour with God unless she was obeying Him? Surely Mary was a person who wanted to stay in the presence of the Lord.

Later in this chapter we read in Luke 1:46,” And Mary said, My soul doth magnify the Lord, 47 And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour.” Obviously Mary was woman who had an intimate relationship with Papa God. She understood the Lord our God is all about relationships.

Could we say it this way, that an outstanding mother is some one who has a personal and intimate relationship with the Lord?
Another thing that is necessary would be that she had a proper relationship with her family.
Clearly Mary supported her husband Joseph’s leadership. I rather doubt she was telling him which way the donkey should go and how they just missed the turn as they traveled about. She probably never contradicted his ideas and opinions in front of the children, or argued with him. Hint, hint, nudge, nudge say no more.
The Holy Bible indicates Mary taught all her children to honour Papa God in all things. You may recall the story where Jesus as a child went missing for 3 days and Joseph and Mary are frantically looking for him and then find him teaching and amazing all the leadership in the temple.
In Luke 2:49,” And he said unto them, How is it that ye sought me? wist ye not that I must be about my Father’s business?
50And they understood not the saying which he spake unto them.
51And he went down with them, and came to Nazareth, and was subject unto them: but his mother kept all these sayings in her heart.” We see that Mary understood something here no one else was really able to understand at this point, or at this level because she had a direct encounter with the Holy Ghost and knew who her son Jesus really was. Let me continue sharing here from verse
52,”And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favour with God and man.”
Jesus Christ of Nazareth was divine, but laid aside and limited his divinity in his days here in the flesh. So He could be an example for us of a sinless man, overcoming sin and defeating Satan!
He proved to us that the same Holy Spirit anointing Him was available to us, and that we are to do these same works in His name and in His authority. Because if Jesus did all these healing and miracles because He was God, then how does He expect believers to do them?  However, if He did them through the works of the Holy Spirit then He has every right to expect us as His true believers and disciples to do them as well because He promised us we could and should. I submit to you for your consideration John 14:12,”Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.”
Because besides inheriting your parents genes, you also have been preprogrammed by Papa God to accomplish good things. Before you were even in your mother’s womb Papa God said He knew you and had a good plan for your life.
Even though the devil has come to try and mess those plans up, they are still good plans. Those good plans are built into our DNA and recent scientific studies and research show that our thoughts can even effect those genes and alter them. Which is where freedom of choice comes in, only you can decide what you will think about? We read in 2 Corinthians 10:5,” Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;”
Taking every thought and examining it against the Word of God all 30.000 to 70.000 a day. Try and imagine the good things God has for you instead of what the devil gives you to imagine.
Keeping in mind that God created us and so we don’t really come from our mothers, but rather through our mothers.
So there are no real excuses here, nothing your parents did or did not do can really hold us back. It may make things a wee bit harder but still let us not forget who really made us in His likeness and image.
Yes its true the sins of the parents can effect you, if your dad was a raging alcoholic you may have a predisposition to become one yourself. If your parents were poor and lived in poverty you will have to overcome some obstacles as well. But again we have been given freedom of choice and we are created by God Almighty who wants us to succeed. Before anyone gave legal rights and brought curses into your family line, God put a blessing on you. Papa God equipped each of us with certain gifts and talents, and with His favour.
As I stated in my book, What Was I Thinking? If 80 to 95% of all sickness and diseases, and all sorts of problems of all manner are really spiritually based and activated in our thought life, then it makes sense to take each thought and examine it against the Word of God to walk in 80% to 95% blessings and health.
Because we have all been given these spiritual genes as well, just like we all have a spark of faith, and they are activated as we line ourselves up with the Word of God. That is where faith comes in, because without faith it is impossible to please the Lord. (Hebrew 11:6)
We read in Romans 12:3,” For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think [of himself] more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.”
Always remember you control your brain, your brain does not control you and you only need the faith of a mustard seed for the Lord to move a mountain in your life.
We read in Mark 11:22,” And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God.
23 For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.
24 Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.” So be careful what you think and say and do and live your life to be glorifying to Christ. 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!
