Crisis


Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
2 Corinthians 5:17 KJV

Our great nation, and the world, is in a cultural identity crisis. Secularism and its “ism” offspring are challenging the right of God our Creator to rule and reign in the hearts of man.

The peace and prosperity of a civilized free society will never be realized outside of submission to God abiding in the heart of its citizens. Only then will individuals esteem others more highly than themselves.

Moality and civility cannot be legislated nor achieved by marches and protests. Only the Spirit of God in the heart of man brings peace.

Choose today whom you will serve. God or the devil, Christ or anti- Christ, morality or immorality, love or hate. Your future depends on your choice.
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.   For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.   He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.   And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.   For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.   But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God. John 3:16‭-‬21 KJV


Eternal Damnation


Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. Acts 4:12 KJV

God is Love and does not want anyone to reject His mercy and grace. God is also Just and must punish sin.

Like it or not, this is an unalterable fact. Faith in Jesus is the only way for anyone to be saved from eternal damnation.
Hell was created for the devil and the angels that followed him in rebellion against their Creator. It is a place of eternal torment unlike anything experienced on earth.

All who reject God’s Savior and walk in rebellion against Him will join the devil in this eternal prison of fire that does not consume.

God made a Way of escape through the sacrifice of Jesus, His only begotten Son. His Love is manifest and extended to whosoever will receive Christ Jesus as Lord and Savior.

I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live: Deuteronomy 30:19 KJV

Choose you this day whom you will serve.

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.  For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. Romans 10:9‭-‬10 KJV


Destroyer

Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.  1 Peter 5:8 ESV

Be on guard. The spirit of anti-Christ is out to destroy America and Israel.

Many things look and sound political when, in fact, they are symptoms of the spiritual war waging in the heavenlies over the control of mankind.


Without Faith

Way too many people still think that God is a withholder, a grinch trying to keep something from them, or a punisher of the least infractions of His law.

Nothing could be further from the truth. He is loving (because He is love) and ever ready to extend mercy and grace.

That should be obvious by the fact that He sent His Only Begotten Son, Jesus, so that we “should not perish, but have everlasting life”.

“God is good! All the time!” is not just a catchy little phrase. God is good all the time. It is the devil that comes to “steal, kill, and destroy “. Jesus came to give us “life, and life more abundantly”.

When you diligently seek God, He is your Rewarder. You seek Him and please Him when you have faith in Him and His Son, Jesus (Mark 11:22).

Have Faith. Please God. Got it? Great! Have a blessed life.


Submit – Resist

Mankind was created by God to have dominion authority over all of creation. Together, under God, they were to fill the earth with righteous seed and live in prosperity and good health.

The first man and woman failed to trust God and broke covenant with Him, allowing sin and its corruption to enter into all their seed. This act of rebellion put all of humanity under the power of the devil and his demonic hordes.

Jesus, the Anointed One, came to restore what was lost and to give whoever would receive Him power and authority over the devil.

Submit, therefore, to God, resist the devil, and he will flee. Jesus defeated the devil and his crowd at the cross on Calvary,  conquering death, hell, and the grave.

Wage the good warfare of Faith and walk in victory every day of your life. Receive Jesus as Lord of lords and King of kings and you will win every spiritual battle and enjoy life and life more abundantly.


I Beheld

I Beheld Satan Fall

And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven. Luke 10:18 (KJV)

This powerful prophetic statement that came from the lips of Jesus, who cannot lie, decreed that He had seen the fall of Satan at His coming resurrection. Glory! The accuser is cast down.

And 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. Revelation 12:10 (KJV)

Many, today, think that Satan is still in heaven accusing them to God. Beloved, nothing could be further from the Bible taught truth. When our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, rose from the dead and sprinkled His precious blood on the mercy seat, Satan’s right to stand in heaven was finished. War broke out and Satan and his followers were driven out and down to the earth.

And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. Revelation 12:7-9 (KJV)

Now, Satan cannot accuse you to God. He can only go about the earth and it’s atmosphere accusing one person to another. Once we grasp this wonderful truth, we can boldly stand against his age old devices of division and strife. We can stand against the wiles of the devil, wielding the sword of the Spirit victoriously (Ephesians 6:11 KJV).

You and I can begin to live a more than conquerors.

I beheld the Bride Ascend

. . . and as the bridegroom rejoiceth over the bride, so shall thy God rejoice over thee. Isaiah 62:5 (KJV)

As God spoke to Jerusalem, so He speaks to the Church, the Bride to be, the help meet of the Lamb and rejoices over her.

The voice of joy, and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom, and the voice of the bride, the voice of them that shall say, Praise the Lord of hosts: for the Lord is good; for his mercy endureth for ever: and of them that shall bring the sacrifice of praise into the house of the Lord. Jeremiah 33:11 (KJV)

The Lamb and the Bride rejoice as one, praise as one, and speak as one as they bring and give glory to God Almighty.

And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely. Revelation 22:17 (KJV)

Together they beckon to all who hunger and thirst for righteousness.

Gather the people, sanctify the congregation, assemble the elders, gather the children, and those that suck the breasts: let the bridegroom go forth of his chamber, and the bride out of her closet. Joel 2:16 (KJV)

Jesus is coming to His Bride before He comes for Her. It is in the midst of the holy convocation of young and old together. His Spirit is being poured out upon all flesh and the glory of God is seen in those who are His own. She is becoming all glorious within, without spot or wrinkle; Washed with the water of the Word, anointed with precious oil of holy anointing. She is ascending in integrity, character, honor, and glory, to ever be with Him.


Faith to Faith

Faith to Faith

Faith is exercised by increased responsibility.

He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much: and he that is unjust in the least is unjust also in much. If therefore ye have not been faithful in the unrighteous mammon, who will commit to your trust the true riches? Luke 16:10-11 (KJV)

As you overcome in one level of faith you are thrust into a new level of faith.

For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more. Luke 12:48 (KJV)

It is “Faith to Faith.”

For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith. This is where those of faith live. “The just shall live by their faith.” (Rom. 1:17 – KJV)

Also – The unjust shall die by their faith. – Fear is faith in the Devil’s ability to bring loss, death and destruction.

The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: John 10:10 (KJV)

Be believing. Don’t let go of what you have. Bring to remembrance what God has said. Don’t let the devil steal your memories of His mighty acts on your behalf.

Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: Whom resist steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world. 1 Peter 5:8-9 (KJV)
