Satan Has Come Down, Knowing he Has But A Little Time

Today I was thinking about the many ways that satan has personally come against me these past few weeks, and against a lot of dear precious saints that I know. I was submitting my self to the Lord and resisting the devils desire that I become down cast, depressed and defeated. The Lord spoke this short word to me, and I went searching the Word.

Satan Has Come Down, Knowing he Has But A Little Time

Revelation 12:10- 12,17
10And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.
11And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.
12Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.

17And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.

Now Satan is more subtil than any beast, and he will make war with the Saints of God, he does currently make war with the Saints of God. He is the accuser of the brethren, he is the one who says thou shalt not die,..(the Word says it is appointed once for a man to die and then the judgment)…. but ye shall be as God…let the saints hear what the Spirit is saying to the Body of Christ…Oh Lord encourage your saints, to be wise as serpents and harmless as doves…

Let me asure you saints, the devil is come to steal your faith, to destroy your trust in God, and to kill you. Be aware he does not come in his own form but in the form of those you care about the most, and in the world, those who are his.

He attacks by coming against those you love the most, he attacks through those you trust, he attacks through the most unexpected ways, he attacks through those who call themselves the brethren. He attacks you in your home, he attacks you in the work place, he attacks you in your school, he attacks you in your church. He attacks you in your mind. He tells you "you cannot make it"...He is a liar, you can do all things through Christ Jesus who strengthens you, you may not have the strength in yourself, but through Him and resting in Him you will be an overcomer.

He wants you to be down cast, he wants you to be depressed; he wants you to believe there is no hope. He wants you to believe you won’t make it to the end, he wants you to believe that you’re not an overcomer.

However he constantly forgets one thing…He who saved you is able, able to keep you, able to sustain you, able to make you an overcomer, when you submit yourself to Him and resist the devils temptations. He who began a good work in you will finish it…Amen…take courage saints and hold fast to that which you have been given by The MOST HIGH...AMEN

And They Knew Not The Time Of Their Visitation

And they knew not the time of their visitation.
And would they humble themselves, they would not.
And now the hour approaches, the day is coming when everything will be consumed with fire, and every man’s works will be tried, whether they will be consumed with the fire or whether they will stand.
The Day of Judgment is upon you.”

The Word above was given to me this Saturday morning Feb.23rd, 2008

Then I heard a further Word from the Lord:

“And you say “Why has judgment come?”
Because of your abominations it has come.”

As I have said is my custom I went to the Word for confirmation.

Why can we trust the Word, why should we take our prophecies our word’s we get from Him, and hold them up to the written Word of God?

Because God is the same Yesterday, Today and for ever, and folks God doesn’t change, man changes, but God Never Changes, and His Word is Truth and His Word is Sure..Amen!:

Jesus said, in Luke 19:41-46:
41And when he was come near, he beheld the city, and wept over it,

42Saying, If thou hadst known, even thou, at least in this thy day, the things which belong unto thy peace! but now they are hid from thine eyes.

43For the days shall come upon thee, that thine enemies shall cast a trench about thee, and compass thee round, and keep thee in on every side,

44And shall lay thee even with the ground, and thy children within thee; and they shall not leave in thee one stone upon another; because thou knewest not the time of thy visitation.

45And he went into the temple, and began to cast out them that sold therein, and them that bought;

46Saying unto them, It is written, My house is the house of prayer: but ye have made it a den of thieves.

Has much of what calls itself God’s house today been made a den of thieves?

Micah 7:2-6
2The good man is perished out of the earth: and there is none upright among men: they all lie in wait for blood; they hunt every man his brother with a net.

3That they may do evil with both hands earnestly, the prince asketh, and the judge asketh for a reward; and the great man, he uttereth his mischievous desire: so they wrap it up.

4The best of them is as a brier: the most upright is sharper than a thorn hedge: the day of thy watchmen and thy visitation cometh; now shall be their perplexity.

5Trust ye not in a friend, put ye not confidence in a guide: keep the doors of thy mouth from her that lieth in thy bosom.

6For the son dishonoureth the father, the daughter riseth up against her mother, the daughter in law against her mother in law; a man’s enemies are the men of his own house.

Those who call themselves watchmen, but are not the Lord’s watchmen will perish in the coming fire.

Hosea 9:7-9
7The days of visitation are come, the days of recompense are come; Israel shall know it: the prophet is a fool, the spiritual man is mad, for the multitude of thine iniquity, and the great hatred.

8The watchman of Ephraim was with my God: but the prophet is a snare of a fowler in all his ways, and hatred in the house of his God.

9They have deeply corrupted themselves, as in the days of Gibeah: therefore he will remember their iniquity, he will visit their sins.

Surely there is nothing new under the sun…Amen!

Jeremiah 51: 17-18
17Every man is brutish by his knowledge; every founder is confounded by the graven image: for his molten image is falsehood, and there is no breath in them.

18They are vanity, the work of errors: in the time of their visitation they shall perish.

Your idols will perish folks, they will be burned up.

Jeremiah 50:22-32
22The sound of battle is in the land, and of great destruction.

23How is the hammer of the whole earth cut asunder and broken! how is Babylon become a desolation among the nations!

24I have laid a snare for thee, and thou art also taken, O Babylon, and thou wast not aware: thou art found, and also caught, because thou hast striven against the LORD.

25The LORD hath opened his armoury, and hath brought forth the weapons of his indignation: for this is the work of the Lord GOD of hosts in the land of the Chaldeans.

26Come against her from the utmost border, open her storehouses: cast her up as heaps, and destroy her utterly: let nothing of her be left.

27Slay all her bullocks; let them go down to the slaughter: woe unto them! for their day is come, the time of their visitation.

28The voice of them that flee and escape out of the land of Babylon, to declare in Zion the vengeance of the LORD our God, the vengeance of his temple.

29Call together the archers against Babylon: all ye that bend the bow, camp against it round about; let none thereof escape: recompense her according to her work; according to all that she hath done, do unto her: for she hath been proud against the LORD, against the Holy One of Israel.

30Therefore shall her young men fall in the streets, and all her men of war shall be cut off in that day, saith the LORD.

31Behold, I am against thee, O thou most proud, saith the Lord GOD of hosts: for thy day is come, the time that I will visit thee.

32And the most proud shall stumble and fall, and none shall raise him up: and I will kindle a fire in his cities, and it shall devour all round about him.

It is not profitable to strive against the Lord oh people, oh nation, oh earth. Now some may say, "Well this scripture is not the church, it's not to America, its not to the earth today."

Oh really! Since God does not change, His commandments to men do not change, infact with the new testament, the heart and intent of men's hearts comes even more into play..example adultery is a sin ...right?
Jesus said if a person looks upon another with the thought of adultery in their heart...that is Jesus brought even more attention to our thoughts and the intent of our hearts. He looks upon the heart nothing is hidden from HIM....AMEN

We as a church, as a nation, as the earth today are an affront to an ALL HOLY GOD...we have commited spiritual adultry, we have left our first love church, world you have thumbed your nose at God, America you ignore His Word.
He has laid out in His Word what is to come upon us all, and that day is fast approaching..To those who have placed themsleves in His hand...look up for your redemption draweth nigh...hold fast to that which you have, see that no man diswade you from your course..fight the good fight of Faith.

Jeremiah 23:9-17
9Mine heart within me is broken because of the prophets
; all my bones shake; I am like a drunken man, and like a man whom wine hath overcome, because of the LORD, and because of the words of his holiness.

10For the land is full of adulterers; for because of swearing the land mourneth; the pleasant places of the wilderness are dried up, and their course is evil, and their force is not right.

11For both prophet and priest are profane; yea, in my house have I found their wickedness, saith the LORD.

12Wherefore their way shall be unto them as slippery ways in the darkness: they shall be driven on, and fall therein: for I will bring evil upon them, even the year of their visitation, saith the LORD.

13And I have seen folly in the prophets of Samaria; they prophesied in Baal, and caused my people Israel to err.

14I have seen also in the prophets of Jerusalem an horrible thing: they commit adultery, and walk in lies: they strengthen also the hands of evildoers, that none doth return from his wickedness: they are all of them unto me as Sodom, and the inhabitants thereof as Gomorrah.

15Therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts concerning the prophets; Behold, I will feed them with wormwood, and make them drink the water of gall: for from the prophets of Jerusalem is profaneness gone forth into all the land.

16Thus saith the LORD of hosts, Hearken not unto the words of the prophets that prophesy unto you: they make you vain: they speak a vision of their own heart, and not out of the mouth of the LORD.

17They say still unto them that despise me, The LORD hath said, Ye shall have peace; and they say unto every one that walketh after the imagination of his own heart, No evil shall come upon you.

Jeremiah 8:11-12
11For they have healed the hurt of the daughter of my people slightly, saying, Peace, peace; when there is no peace.

12Were they ashamed when they had committed abomination? nay, they were not at all ashamed, neither could they blush: therefore shall they fall among them that fall: in the time of their visitation they shall be cast down, saith the LORD.

This is what the prophets promise God's people today..peace...they prophesy a lie people!!!
They say enough of this gloom and doom, let's think positive, lets change our world by Godly polititians, folks it is past time for Godly politians...their are no Godly politians... for all seek their own fame...The world looks for a leader to bring them peace...there will be no peace until the Prince of Peace, The King of Kings the Lord of Lords comes to rule and reign on this earth..Amen!

Isaiah 10:3
And what will ye do in the day of visitation, and in the desolation which shall come from far? to whom will ye flee for help? and where will ye leave your glory?

2 Peter 3:11-14
11Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness,

12Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?

13Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.

14Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless.

1 Peter 1:3-9
3Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,

4To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you,

5Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.
6Wherein ye greatly rejoice, though now for a season, if need be, ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations:

7That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ:

8Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory:

9Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls. AMEN!

1 Corinthians 3:11-15
11For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.

12Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble;

13Every man’s work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man’s work of what sort it is.

14If any man’s work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward.

15If any man’s work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire.

16Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?
17If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.

God does not dwell in temples made with hands church, He dwells in you, if you are one of His, if you have received of His Spirit.

Get on your faces children of God, seek His face, stay repentant before Him for surely the day of visitation is upon us all…for judgment will begin at the House of God…and where, if the righteous scarcely be saved, does that leave the sinner?

1 Peter 4:12-19
12Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you:

13But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ’s sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy.

14If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye; for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you: on their part he is evil spoken of, but on your part he is glorified.

15But let none of you suffer as a murderer, or as a thief, or as an evildoer, or as a busybody in other men’s matters.

16Yet if any man suffer as a Christian, let him not be ashamed; but let him glorify God on this behalf.

17For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?

18And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?

19Wherefore let them that suffer according to the will of God commit the keeping of their souls to him in well doing, as unto a faithful Creator. ....AMEN!!

And he Shall Come As A Man Of Peace With Seven Abominations In His Heart

The Holy Spirit placed the following sentence in my mind this morning.

And he shall come as a man of peace, with seven abominations in his heart.”

As is my custom I went first to the Word of God, to see if this was of the Lord.
I was figuring what’s the odds, first I typed in “Man of Peace”, no such string, then I thought well let’s me try this, thinking I was off base, “seven abominations”…and bingo! Praise His Holy Name… Glory to God, He truly knows the hearts of men and women.
Proverbs 26:24-2824 He that hateth dissembleth with his lips, and layeth up deceit within him;
25When he speaketh fair, believe him not: for there are seven abominations in his heart.26Whose hatred is covered by deceit, his wickedness shall be showed before the whole congregation.27Whoso diggeth a pit shall fall therein: and he that rolleth a stone, it will return upon him.28A lying tongue hateth those that are afflicted by it; and a flattering mouth worketh ruin.

Now this may well be prophetic from the Lord, but it also happens to apply to current situations within the body of Christ World wide, and may it minister to my brothers and sisters in the Lord, who strive daily to be pleasing to Him, and may it encourage you to know that God is aware of your heart ache for the body of Christ and He is in control…Amen... Glory!!!!

Many Voices, And For Every Man A Doctrine!!!

I thank the Good Lord that He said, "If "it were possible even the very elect would be deceived…There are so many voices in the world today, and so many men with their own doctrine and their own agenda, to fit their giant sized egos. Yet there is but one doctrine, one truth and that doctrine is contained within the pages of God’s Word. The disciples warned that if they or an angel from heaven preach any other doctrine to the sheep of the Most High, let that person or persons be accursed.

Galatians 1:6-9
I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel:
Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ.
But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.
As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.

Beware of strange doctrine, it is like the strange fire that was offered by Arron’s sons and is worthy of death. Tread carefully ye who would teach, preach and propagate strange doctrines, doctrines of men bring death to all who embrace them.

Leviticus 10:1-2
And Nadab and Abihu, the sons of Aaron, took either of them his censer, and put fire therein, and put incense thereon, and offered strange fire before the LORD, which he commanded them not.
And there went out fire from the LORD, and devoured them, and they died before the LORD.

Anyone who seeks to distort, detract, add to, twist to fit their agenda, or ignore the written word of God is a liar, and a wolf, and on very dangerous ground, for God wont suffer those who pervert His gospel, His Word, or those who seek to lead His sheep astray, in order to fulfill their lust for power and their own over inflated egos.

It doesn’t take to long before one see’s the true nature of a person, just present a truth that they don’t like and out come the hidden claws…out come the personal insults, out come defamatory comments as to the spiritual condition of the one presenting the truth…they go on a personal attack against you…..try the spirits the word says … to see of what sort they are…a very wise admonition from the Lord…"Not everyone who says unto me Lord, Lord shall enter into the kingdom of Heaven."

Any person who desires to have control over others, doesn’t want people to know the truth, not without applying their spin to it. They sometimes go so far as to cut people off from all outside sources, no T.V. news, no radio news, no communication with others outside of their group, sometimes no contact with family…all in the name of being pleasing to God, so they say.

I once heard the most arrogant account of the book of Job, by someone who called themselves a Christian, basically what they said was, Job had all his problems because he just didn’t get “It” he lacked faith, in other words all his problems were his fault…Now folks when that person stands face to face with God and face to face with Job one of these days, who’s face do you think is going to turn red first?

A good tree cannot bring forth bad fruit … by their fruits ye shall know them… by the love they have one for another, and by the love they have for the truth. Is a person willing to lay down their own ego, their own need to be found right at all times, even when what they present is not in line with the written Word of God.

As I spoke of in my blog, “There is nothing loving about the enemy of your soul” Feb. 3rd 2008…I recognize the enemy. He is mean, he is insulting, he is abusive, he is arrogant, he has a need to be in control, and he has an ego the size of Mt. Rushmore. The enemy can dish out insults with the best of them, but when it comes to receiving the same, he fails miserably; he cannot take any bruising to his precious ego. Those who have fallen captive to their own ego, generally speaking, play the persecuted martyr when confronted with their own brand of medicine.

We have seen many so called religious leaders in past years, those who cater to the vulnerable souls, the searching souls, many who are sincerely seeking to please God. Unfortunately they sometimes fall into the hands of those wolves in sheep’s clothing. Wolves are some times hard to spot because they surround themselves with those who pepper their egos. They display an element of truth in all they profess, but folks underneath it all they are ravening wolves. The Lord taught me early that Satan is more subtle than any beast, he is crafty conniving, and deceptive,and he comes to kill, to steal and to destroy.

Any time a person thinks that they are the only ones that know the truth, that only their interpretation is fit for consumption…..folks run, run as fast as you can, because that person is a giant deceiver. These wolves like to keep men in subjection to themselves, not to God.

These wolves like to let people think that they are the only ones who get “It” so they can keep their superior position, from where they look down on the rest of God’s creation. From such I say again…flee…because such persons are lost in their own ego and arrogance, they are lost in their own self deception, and have run themselves through with many an arrow.

There is only one Truth and it is open to every believer, to every child of God. It is opened by the Holy Spirit to all who hunger and thirst after righteousness. It is so clear to comprehend that even a child can have understanding. It is man that makes the gospel complicated and seemingly hard for man to attain to, not God. What He has for us is for every hungry soul, available for the asking…Amen. As Jesus spoke to the Pharisees:

Matthew 23:13-15
But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in.
Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye devour widows’ houses, and for a pretence make long prayer: therefore ye shall receive the greater damnation.
Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves.

Psalms 19:7-8
The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple.
The statutes of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes.

1 Corinthians 1:26-29
For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called:
But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;
And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are:
That no flesh should glory in his presence.

There will be no self absorbed, know it all’s in Heaven, only the meek will enter in. Some are very careless with the liberty they have been given in Christ, and they forget where God has brought them from, and they forget that the same measure that they use to judge another will be used to judge them. May we all stay humble and repentant before The Most High, that we may be found pleasing in His sight.

2 Peter 1:5-11
And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge;
And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness;
And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity.
For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
But he that lacketh these things is blind, and cannot see afar off, and hath forgotten that he was purged from his old sins.
Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall:

For so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

Galatians 5:13-16
For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another.
For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

"But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye be not consumed one of another."

This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh

Romans 12:3-9
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.
For as we have many members in one body, and all members have not the same office:
So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another.
Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, whether prophecy, let us prophesy according to the proportion of faith;
Or ministry, let us wait on our ministering: or he that teacheth, on teaching;
Or he that exhorteth, on exhortation: he that giveth, let him do it with simplicity; he that ruleth, with diligence; he that showeth mercy, with cheerfulness.
Let love be without dissimulation.

Romans 2:1-16
Therefore thou art inexcusable, O man, whosoever thou art that judgest: for wherein thou judgest another, thou condemnest thyself; for thou that judgest doest the same things.
But we are sure that the judgment of God is according to truth against them which commit such things.

And thinkest thou this, O man, that judgest them which do such things, and doest the same, that thou shalt escape the judgment of God?
Or despisest thou the riches of his goodness and forbearance and longsuffering; not knowing that the goodness of God leadeth thee to repentance?
But after thy hardness and impenitent heart treasurest up unto thyself wrath against the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God;
Who will render to every man according to his deeds:
To them who by patient continuance in well doing seek for glory and honour and immortality, eternal life:
But unto them that are contentious, and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, indignation and wrath,
Tribulation and anguish, upon every soul of man that doeth evil, of the Jew first, and also of the Gentile;
But glory, honour, and peace, to every man that worketh good, to the Jew first, and also to the Gentile:
For there is no respect of persons with God.
For as many as have sinned without law shall also perish without law: and as many as have sinned in the law shall be judged by the law;
(For not the hearers of the law are just before God, but the doers of the law shall be justified.
For when the Gentiles, which have not the law, do by nature the things contained in the law, these, having not the law, are a law unto themselves:
Which show the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and their thoughts the mean while accusing or else excusing one another;)
In the day when God shall judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ according to my gospel.

May we all learn to Love the brethren, love those who have a heart of after God, exhort and encourage one another and even the more so as we see the day approaching. For as the Word says if you cannot love your brother who you can see, how can you say you love God whom you cannot see. Let us do unto others as we would have them do unto us…Amen…lest God give us a heaping great truck load of our own medicine…Amen

This is a day and a time in which it is of the utmost importance that we each have our own relationship with our Savior Jesus Christ, that we have an intimate relationship with Him and His Word, that we seek His Holy Spirit, that we desire the Truth, what ever the personal cost to us. We must take time alone with God and seek to stay in the Spirit and walk in the Spirit and not in our flesh… that we may hear and know his voice, and be able to recognize fellow sheep, and recognize the wolves when we come across them …Amen

The Enemy Is The Author Of Confusion

The following is a Word the Lord gave me for a friend a few months ago, and I happened upon it today, when I needed it! Isn’t God awesome!
In fact as I was initially reading it, I thought, “Oh that’s good, I wonder who wrote that.”, no that’s not old age, that’s the Holy Spirit, when He gives you something it has not come from your mind, but from the throne room of Heaven. He gave it to me initially for someone else, yet knowing that I was going to need it today, Praise God, Amen! :

If it's one thing the enemy wants us to be it is confused; confused about our past confused about our future and confused about our position in Christ. If he can keep us in a state of confusion then we can’t keep our focus on The Lord. If he can keep us dwelling in our past and the bad things that happened to us, or the bad things we have done, he will succeed in launching us into the depths of depression, guilt and every other negative and demeaning emotion possible.

God on the other hand knew from the beginning that He was going to birth us into our individual circumstances. For Him it was in order that no matter what the circumstance was He chose for us, that He would be able (if we submitted our will to Him) to make us victorious over the enemy of our souls, make us overcomers.

It’s all about our belief in Jesus Christ, it’s all about our faith in Him. The devil wants to bring us low so he can steel our faith, and Jesus wants to trust in Him, and keep our faith. It’s the age old battle for our eternal souls.

The reason God told us to keep our eye single to look neither to the left or to the right, was because He knew how the messenger of Satan would buffet us, how he would remind us of our past, of our failures, of our short comings.

I have learned to put the past behind me where it belongs, there is nothing I can do about my past, (except lend forgiveness to those who hurt me, and accept the forgiveness that Christ has extended to me), but I can do something about today. That is why the Lord says there is sufficient evil in today to battle against, in other words, yesterday is gone, today is here, tomorrow is in the Lords hands, because none of us has a promise of tomorrow….Amen.”

Addition today to the above. My grandma used to say, “My dear you can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make him drink.”
You can give people the Word of God, you can show them the way, it’s up to them if they accept or reject it. Only God can deal with the hearts of men and women.

As we see the day approaching the battle will grow more fierce, the enemy of our souls doesn’t stay silent for to long before he gets on the war path again. That is why it is of the utmost importance that we stay grounded in the Word of God, and stay filled with His Spirit. We need to rid ourselves of any root of bitterness, of any root of unforgiveness. Bitterness will eat us alive and unforgiveness will separate us from God's forgiveness toward us.

James 3:13-18
Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you? let him show out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom.

But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not, and lie not against the truth.
This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish.
For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work.
But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be entreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.
And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace.

So where there is strife there is confusion.
What is the definition of strife?
Bitter sometimes violent conflict or dissension; fight, struggle, discord.
Exertion or contention for superiority.
Discord: lack of agreement or harmony, (as between persons, things, or ideas)
Active quarreling or conflict resulting from discord among persons or factions.

Proverbs 6:16-19
These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him:
A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,
An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief,
A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.

While there are many opinions there is only One Truth, which will remain long after we are all dead and gone. The Truth will never pass away. God's Spirit bears witness to The Truth in the souls of the children of God.

1 Corinthians 14:32-33
For ye may all prophesy one by one, that all may learn, and all may be comforted.

And the spirits of the prophets are subject to the prophets.
For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.

How do you judge dreams, prophecies and visions and words given by different people, when one may interpret it one way, and someone else another way?
You let that dream, vision, prophecy be judged by the Spirit filled prophets and by the Word of God…Amen

I thank God for those who do get on their face daily before God, who fast and seek His face, so that they have something to give to the body of Christ. We should all be daily seeking God for a Word from Him. There is only one reason a child of God doesn’t hear and receive from God, they don’t ask, they don’t seek, they don’t knock. We all need to learn how to ask of God that we be not destitute in the days to come..Amen

My Sheep Know My Voice, Another's They Will Not Follow!

The Lord reminded me today, through a saint of God, what my task has been since He saved my soul. “Feed MY Sheep.” .....Not someone else’s sheep, His sheep, those who are hungry for The Truth, those who are seeking Him with all their hearts, those who have no personal agenda, those who are not seeking to be accepted by man, who have no goals out side of being pleasing to Him. Those who are willing to crucify their own flesh, those who are willing to lay down their lives for the truth of the Gospel of Jesus Christ our Lord. Those who want nothing but the Truth no matter what the cost to them.

I know in Whom I believe, and I am, as the old song says, persuaded that He is able to keep that which I have committed to Him, against the day that is to come. The Holy Spirit settles in me to whom I am to listen, and I do know His voice. He drew me to salvation, He filled me with His Spirit he sealed me with His Spirit, and He leads and guides me on a daily basis, as He does all His sheep…Amen

There are many voices today, each enticing people to follow their way of believing. If it is a belief that detracts from Jesus Christ our Lord being Center and foremost, if it draws peoples attention away from the shed blood of Christ to a salvation of works, then flee people flee, and get on your face before God until He speaks to your heart, and fills you with His Spirit...Amen

The enemy folks is on the rampage to steal, to kill and to destroy your faith, and He is merciless and ruthless, and hate filled, he does not care for your soul, only his own agenda, that is why he was cast out of heaven. He wanted to be God, he wants to take the place of Jesus in your heart, and he seeks to destroy God’s own….Amen

Remember Jobs comforter’s folks, they had what seemed very good things to say to him in his time of greatest need, but in the end what did God tell them?

Job 42:7-8
And it was so, that after the LORD had spoken these words unto Job, the LORD said to Eliphaz the Temanite, My wrath is kindled against thee, and against thy two friends: for ye have not spoken of me the thing that is right, as my servant Job hath.
8Therefore take unto you now seven bullocks and seven rams, and go to my servant Job, and offer up for yourselves a burnt offering; and my servant Job shall pray for you: for him will I accept: lest I deal with you after your folly, in that ye have not spoken of me the thing which is right, like my servant Job.

Even the very best of intentions and sacrifices, when not Christ centered, are not accepted of God. Rebellion is as the sin of witch craft, and stubbornness as idolatry. We may well be set in our belief system, but if it is not in accordance with the gospel of Jesus Christ, then we are in unbelief, rebellion and stubborness.

John 10:1-18
Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber.
2But he that entereth in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep.
3To him the porter openeth; and the sheep hear his voice: and he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out.
4And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them, and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice.
5And a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him: for they know not the voice of strangers.”

6This parable spake Jesus unto them: but they understood not what things they were which he spake unto them.
7Then said Jesus unto them again,

Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep.
8All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them.
9I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.
10The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
11I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.

12But he that is an hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and fleeth: and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep.
13The hireling fleeth, because he is an hireling, and careth not for the sheep.
14I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine.
15As the Father knoweth me, even so know I the Father: and I lay down my life for the sheep.
16And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd.
17Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again.
18No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This commandment have I received of my Father.”

Post Script/ure:
Matt 11:6
And blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in me.

Matt 13:10-23
And the disciples came, and said unto him, Why speakest thou unto them in parables?

11He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given.
12For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath.
13Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.
14And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias, which saith, By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive:
15For this people’s heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.
16But blessed are your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they hear.
17For verily I say unto you, That many prophets and righteous men have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them.
18Hear ye therefore the parable of the sower.
19When any one heareth the word of the kingdom, and understandeth it not, then cometh the wicked one, and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart. This is he which received seed by the way side.
20But he that received the seed into stony places, the same is he that heareth the word, and anon with joy receiveth it;
21Yet hath he not root in himself, but dureth for a while: for when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the word, by and by he is offended.
22He also that received seed among the thorns is he that heareth the word; and the care of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, choke the word, and he becometh unfruitful.
23But he that received seed into the good ground is he that heareth the word, and understandeth it; which also beareth fruit, and bringeth forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.

The Fool Hath Said In His Heart

Psalm 53:1-4
1The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. Corrupt are they, and have done abominable iniquity: there is none that doeth good.
2 God looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, that did seek God.
3 Every one of them is gone back: they are altogether become filthy; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.
4 Have the workers of iniquity no knowledge? who eat up my people as they eat bread: they have not called upon God.

Titus 1:15-16
15Unto the pure all things are pure: but unto them that are defiled and unbelieving is nothing pure; but even their mind and conscience is defiled.
16They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate.

Matthew 15:14
Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.

Those who seek to be tolerant of other religions who’s God is not The Lord Jesus Christ , those who do not know The One True God and Our Savior The Lord Jesus Christ, will fall to the wiles of the enemy.
A good example of this is an article I read today:

If the once “Great Brittan”, does not turn from its wicked ways, and stop listening to it’s so called liberal “Religious Leaders” and politicians, it is going to fall fully into the hands of it’s enemies. The death rattle can almost be heard.

May we hold up the true Children of God in England, they need all the prayer they can get.
It will not be too long before our Religioius leaders and polititians are espousing that this nation do likewise. God help us all.

Just For The Record

Lest I have done despite (contemptuous treatment, scorn, disregard, disrespect, or disdained ) to the Spirit of Grace. )May God Forgive me, and the Grace of Almighty God rectify…Amen

Hebrews 10:28-29
He that despised Moses’ law died without mercy under two or three witnesses: Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace?

Lest I have ever inferred that there is any other way to righteousness, other than through the shed blood of Jesus Christ my Lord and Savior.

Galatians 2:21
I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain.

Lest I have ever inferred that one should walk in the law, instead of the newness of the Holy Spirit.

Romans 7:4-6
Wherefore, my brethren, ye also are become dead to the law by the body of Christ; that ye should be married to another, even to him who is raised from the dead, that we should bring forth fruit unto God. For when we were in the flesh, the motions of sins, which were by the law, did work in our members to bring forth fruit unto death.But now we are delivered from the law, that being dead wherein we were held; that we should serve in newness of spirit, and not in the oldness of the letter.

Lest I ever inferred that anyone can be justified by the law, as opposed to the Grace of God Almighty in Christ Jesus our Lord

Galatians 5:4
Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law; ye are fallen from grace.

Lest I have ever inferred that one can be made righteous by the keeping of any feast, any tradition or by any keeping of the old testament law outside of Jesus Christ our Lord, may God forgive me…. Amen.

If any find this offensive, that is something you must take to God, because I am more concerned with offending Jesus Christ than I am of offending any man or woman..Amen

Post Script: All the above Scriptures were to be delivered to the Jews first and then they were delivered to the Gentiles.

There's Nothing Loving About The Enemy Of Your Soul

The Lord awoke me early again this morning, (before 5am this time) and honored to be summoned, I started listening to what He was speaking to me, and bringing to my remembrance. I now share some of it with you. He spoke the title to me first "There is nothing loving about the enemy of your soul" and then reminded me of some of my past experiences with that enemy.
He has prompted me by His Spirit, to share some of those experiences with His Children.

For several years I was a sidewalk counselor, along with many others, at one, sometimes two, of the abortion clinics here in Wichita, sometimes 3 days a week from early morning till into early evening when the clinic closed. (there is much yet to be told of these experiences, but perhaps another day and another time.)

This is a time I will always treasure, not only was it summons to duty for the Lord on behalf of the innocent, those who could not defend themselves, but it was a time of great learning in the Lord. It was a time in which I learned a great deal about the traits, tactics and character of the enemy of our souls. It was also a time in which the Lord spoke, and did many miraculous things that have forever grounded me in His Truth.

At the time I initially began as a counselor, there were people who were called “Clinic escorts”. These were people sometimes hired by the abortionists, or who volunteered, who would stand inside and outside the clinic property, to give supposed “safe escort” of the patients into the death chambers, and to protect them from us, who were trying to get the truth into their hands via literature, and trying to offer them help, a way to save both them and their babies from the death chamber, and the incinerator.

Now there were some of these clinic escorts who really believed, in their deceived minds that they were doing these women and their children a favor, that they were being loving and protecting. There were others who knew full well what they were doing, and loved death.
Occasionally after not to long of observing the abject evil openly displayed by some escorts, some others of their crowd would no longer go out to the clinics, so that left only the demonically driven select few to harass and berate us.

One thing they really hated was to hear the Word of Truth witnessed to them. Oh that would really get them angry, they would curse us all the more. They would call for their back up, because mostly they couldn’t fight their own battles they wanted someone fiercer than themselves to do it for them, some one more vicious, more foul, who would even physically attack some of us at times. But we didn’t respond in kind, why?
"Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves."
.... "And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient, In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth; And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will."

Also because God says “Vengeance is mine saith the Lord I shall recompense thee” and you know what folks He did. He eventually removed all the clinic escorts from one of the clinic’s. He also took the lives of two of the escorts at another clinic, not before they had heard His Truth and been witnessed to, in love for their lost souls by the children of God, and warned by Him of their impending deaths if they didn’t change their ways, and turn from evil to Him.

The leader of these so called “clinic escorts” of course was Satan himself, it is his goal to wipe out the very image of God in which man is made, so what better thing for him to do than try to eradicate God’s very creation. Their main agenda was to in any way they could, discourage, deter, and defame the children of God.
Satan doesn’t play nice, he plays dirty, he doesn’t play on the up and up, he is a liar and a deceiver. He deceives even those who choose his ways, which unfortunately ends in the death of their natural life and their souls for all eternity.

I found that when he used those who have chosen to listen to his voice, rather than the voice of Almighty God, that those people, even though their tongues are set on fire of hell, basically underneath it all, are cowards. When having an audience and others of their kind about, they were vicious; they would curse at us, tell us we weren’t Christians, defame our God, belittle our Jesus, and mock us relentlessly. Children of God, I am well accustomed to the spewing of hatred from the children of the evil one, for out of the abundance of their hearts their mouths speak.

Now there were many “Christians” who couldn’t take the attacks, because folks they would get really personal and some Christians would want to attack them back, which would of course prompt more taunts of “Oh Your Just A Hypocrite, that’s what you Christians are your all hypocrites” consequently for those who were not filled with the Spirit of God, who didn’t know the Word of God, and who were not trusting in Him to sustain, keep, enable and protect them, those people eventually fell away, some were even afraid for their lives.

Children of God, when the perfect love of God dwells in us through His Holy Spirit it casts away all fear..Amen!

The clinic escorts were relentless in their spewing of foul language, they would call us unspeakable things, falsely accuse us of evil things. Have you ever noticed children of God it is a fact: the devil and his children are the accusers of the brethren, and false accusers at that!?
It is only in the midst of the battle that you find out who your friends really are, who really belongs to Jesus, and who is just a part of the dead, spiritless, truly self righteous, religious world of the luke warm and the wishy washy.

When times get hard, and the enemy is at his strongest, let me tell you God is stronger, God is Greater. Let me tell you folks He is our Protector, He is our Defender, He is our Deliverer, and He does mighty things through those who put all their trust in Him.
Have you ever noticed how the enemy has one set of rules for himself, yet another set of rules for you, Child of God!?

Those clinic escorts would just love to rile people up just so they could then turn on them and accuse them of being a hypocrite, any of this sounding familiar to any of you yet!?
As I say when they felt under attack by the Word of God they would run, they would scatter; they would change the subject anything, rather than submit themselves to the Truth of God’s Word and the wooing of His Spirit. Some were bold enough though to hit back with what scripture they did know...funny how their favorite one seemed to be "judge not", "Your not supposed to Judge." they would taunt. They obviously didn't know the truth.

When they couldn't argue with the Word given to them, then they would make more personal attacks, which is a common trait for people who can't respond to truth with truth, they resort to personal attacks on people and their charachter. See folks Satans children know just enough of The Truth to make them aggressive with it, but not enough to be set free by it.

Now don’t think that the enemy of your soul is a weak little snippet of a thing, Satan is as the Word of God tells us “As a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.” It is His goal as we know to steal, kill and destroy my any means possible, any means to an end for him.

In order to resist him you must first submit yourself to God and then resist him, and then and only then will he flee from you”. You cannot go into any battle in this life without submitting yourself, all of your-self to God, by crucifying your flesh, by dying to yourself, only then will He give you the courage to withstand the attacks of the enemy of your soul. Only then will He, God , recompense His justice upon the heads of your enemies, and His. Because folks remember when the enemy attacks you, he is not attacking you, he is attacking God himself, and God will vindicate you. He will protect you, He will mete out justice for you and in the end of it all you can stand before Him and He will say, “Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.”
Folks it will be worth it all one of these days, God is faithful to us, let us be faithful to Him and faithful to each other.

In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother.
Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him.
Whosoever abideth in him sinneth not: whosoever sinneth hath not seen him, neither known him.
Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous. He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning.”

Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment: But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, RacaRaca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire. Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother hath ought against thee; Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift.Agree with thine adversary quickly, whiles thou art in the way with him; lest at any time the adversary deliver thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and thou be cast into prison. Verily I say unto thee, Thou shalt by no means come out thence, till thou hast paid the uttermost farthing.”

May the Lord Bless all who read this post, may it stir your hearts, your souls and your minds to become more like Him, to put your trust in Him that He may set you free in Him and open up to you all the glories of heaven. God Bless Helen

Post script: I must tell you that there were some clinic escorts that did listen, one in particular who I remember, came and hugged my precious friend Dixie and I most unexpectedly one day, after spewing her hatred for us at us on a weekly basis ..unfortuantely, she died suddenly on her job not to long after that. However she had heard the Word given in love for her soul many times, so will be unable on the day of judgment to accuse God of not trying to reach her.

By Their Fruits Ye Shall Know Them

Brothers & Sisters in The Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord spoke these things to me early this morning, because I needed to hear them, may they also bless and edify all the Children of God.

Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?
Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.
A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.

Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.

Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:
And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.
And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand:
And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.

And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at his doctrine: For he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.

For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another.
For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye be not consumed one of another.

This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.

For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.

But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law.

Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.

If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.

Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another.

Finally, be ye all of one mind, having compassion one of another, love as brethren, be pitiful, be courteous:

Not rendering evil for evil, or railing for railing: but contrariwise blessing; knowing that ye are thereunto called, that ye should inherit a blessing.

For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile: Let him eschew evil, and do good; let him seek peace, and ensue it.

For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his ears are open unto their prayers: but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil. And who is he that will harm you, if ye be followers of that which is good?

But and if ye suffer for righteousness’ sake, happy are ye: and be not afraid of their terror, neither be troubled; But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:
Having a good conscience; that, whereas they speak evil of you, as of evildoers, they may be ashamed that falsely accuse your good conversation in Christ. For it is better, if the will of God be so, that ye suffer for well doing, than for evil doing.

If ye love me, keep my commandments. And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.

I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you. Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also.

At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you.
He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.

Judas saith unto him, not Iscariot, Lord, how is it that thou wilt manifest thyself unto us, and not unto the world?

Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him. He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father’s which sent me.

These things have I spoken unto you, being yet present with you.
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.
Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

But the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison.
Therewith bless we God, even the Father; and therewith curse we men, which are made after the similitude of God.
Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be.
Doth a fountain send forth at the same place sweet water and bitter?
Can the fig tree, my brethren, bear olive berries? either a vine, figs? so can no fountain both yield salt water and fresh.

Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you? let him show out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom.
But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not, and lie not against the truth. This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish.

For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work.

But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be entreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.

And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace.

Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.

In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.

Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.

Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another.
No man hath seen God at any time.
If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us.

Hereby know we that we dwell in him, and he in us, because he hath given us of his Spirit.
And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world.
Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God.
And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.

Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world.

There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love. We love him, because he first loved us.

If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen?

And this commandment have we from him, That he who loveth God love his brother also.

There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.
For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh: That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit. For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.

Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be. So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.
But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you.

Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.

And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness.
But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.

Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh. For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live.

For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.

For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.

The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:

And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.
For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.

For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God. For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope, Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now.

And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body.

For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for? But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it.

Let us all seek to be filled withThe Baptism of His Holy Spirit, and walk and be led of His Holy Spirit. Amen

Glory to The Most High God!!!
