How Does God discipline and chastise His Children?

Scripture says that God will discipline and chastise His children. Do Christians really know what that means? How does God discipline? How does God rebuke and chastises? Many know the word and concept but they do not know the way of God of how He deals with us in this manner

When God disciplines, does it mean he gets out a big paddle and spanks us? What methods do God employ to discipline us?

 Hebrews 12:6-8 (Amplified Bible)
6For the Lord corrects and disciplines everyone whom He loves, and He punishes, even scourges, every son whom He accepts and welcomes to His heart and cherishes. 7You must submit to and endure [correction] for discipline; God is dealing with you as with sons. For what son is there whom his father does not [thus] train and correct and discipline? 8Now if you are exempt from correction and left without discipline in which all [of God's children] share, then you are illegitimate offspring and not true sons [at all].

Revelation 3:19 (Amplified Bible)19Those whom I [dearly and tenderly] love, I tell their faults and convict and convince and reprove and chasten [I discipline and instruct them]. So be enthusiastic and in earnest and burning with zeal and repent [changing your mind and attitude].

All we have to do is read the book of Job. The things Job went through are the methods employed by God to either jugde us or test us.

When our finances go down, we should ask ourselves, is God testing me or am I being judged. If we get sick, we need to ask the same question. If you have a terminal sickness, you are more or less getting judged. Job got sickness but it was not terminal. When our children are sick and dying, we better ask ourselves what has brought this on? Our children will either be blessed or cursed through the parents.

Instead of asking God to help us with our finances when they go down, we should be asking Him to search our hearts. Are we being tested or judged? If our health is deteriorating, we need to ask God to search our hearts to see if there is any sin in there that has given the devil a foothold.

Scripture says if we follow God's commandments and live upright, we will be blessed and our harvest will be abundant and our years will be lengthened. When things go wrong, do not think it is just coincidence. Everything is conditional and everything allowed has a purpose. Please read Job and see how God deals with us to discipline and chasten us whether we are being punished or tested.

 Too many people waste their time on humanism. They spend their resources on cancer or other research and "awareness." I am not belittling their causes but that is all humanism. If you want the cure, you should spend the time and resources on God. If someone is on the brink of death or knows their time is limited, that person may give all they have to that research and development out of fear of death. Why won't they give it to God and trust Him. If they are going to give all of their savings to some Research and Development company, why not give it to God and cry out to Him. It is sad that even many Christians are waiting for a cure from their terminal diseases from man instead of God. They will do marathons and walkathons but where are the prayathons? When will they realize they must get on their knees and repent and cry out!

Too many of God's people are dying in our churches when it should not be so. Most live, look, and die like the world. Something is extremely wrong with that picture. Do you want to be cured? Start obeying and repenting!! This can be for your healing or deliverance. The healing or deliverance may not always come instantly but at least you are now on the road to doing the Father's will and road to recovery. Why will it not sometimes come instantly?  God is still testing you. He has His appointed times.

 Remember, Job's test on his health was not life threatening. He was being tested. He had not sin where he brought himself judgment.

What I speak is truth. Please ask God if what I speak is truth.

1 Kings 3:14 (Amplified Bible)14And if you will go My way, keep My statutes and My commandments as your father David did, then I will lengthen your days.

Leviticus 26:13-18 (Amplified Bible)
13I am the Lord your God, Who brought you forth out of the land of Egypt, that you should no more be slaves; and I have broken the bars of your yoke and made you walk erect [as free men].14But if you will not hearken to Me and will not do all these commandments,15And if you spurn and despise My statutes, and if your soul despises and rejects My ordinances, so that you will not do all My commandments, but break My covenant,16I will do this: I will appoint over you [sudden] terror (trembling, trouble), even consumption and fever that consume and waste the eyes and make the [physical] life pine away. You shall sow your seed in vain, for your enemies shall eat it.17I [the Lord] will set My face against you and [a]you shall be defeated and slain before your enemies; they who hate you shall rule over you; you shall flee when no one pursues you.(A)18And if in spite of all this you still will not listen and be obedient to Me, then I will chastise and discipline you seven times more for your sins

 Proverbs 15:10 There is severe discipline for him who forsakes God's way; and he who hates reproof will die [physically, morally, and spiritually].

Proverbs 10:27 (Amplified Bible)27The reverent and worshipful fear of the Lord prolongs one's days, but the years of the wicked shall be made short.

Isaiah 33:24 (Amplified Bible)24And no inhabitant [of Zion] will say, I am sick; the people who dwell there will be forgiven their iniquity and guilt

MESSENGERS FOR THE MOST HIGH

YOOJIN KIM & STEVE YONG KIM

Please note, a 1000 years to man is a day to God. When God says "imminent or anytime" what does that mean in His context of time. It can still mean tomorrow, next year, 10 years, 30 or 50 years. Please discern and be led by the Holy Spirit. Prepare for judgment and dark days before rapture!

Code word - "I am not perfect"

As I meet Christians, I notice many have a common saying. As I preach to them, I hear many of them say a very common statement. I do not point out any of their sin for I do not know their heart or what they have been doing. Many of these Christians I meet at work and I only have a few minutes to talk to them. But in the few minutes, I try to speak as much Truth and Revelation as God allows. I have to assume the words I speak is convicting because they keep telling me the same thing. It is not all of them but it is the lukewarm Christians who have not been discipled properly. They like to reply and justify by saying, "I am not perfect."

What are they really saying? I have learned this is code for "I am still sinning, I am still in addictions, I am still in bondage, I am still doing things I do not want to bring into the light," and so on and so on. Of course, they do not tell me their sin nor do I ask.

I know no one is perfect. The messages the Lord reveals to me are messages for His people to turn back into the Light and back on the narrow road. It does not matter to me what sin one is in or has been committing. My job and calling is to teach His people to repent and obey the faith in Jesus Christ. We are to speak Truth and shine His Light, to lift Him on High so He may draw all men unto Him.

Yes, we are not perfect but can we not strive for perfection? At least try? Can we not try live a life from willful sin? Can we not repent and confess daily of what we have stumbled? Grace is there for us to be cleansed by His Blood on a daily basis. Yes, we will make mistakes but we have a choice to get back up and try again. Grace gives us another chance to get things right with God even for those who have fallen away from Grace. Grace gives us strength to overcome our bondage and addictions. Grace does not give us a license to sin. Grace does not give us the opportunity to continue in it and justify it by saying we are sinners and we are not perfect.


Romans 6:1-2 (Amplified Bible)1WHAT SHALL we say [to all this]? Are we to remain in sin in order that God's grace (favor and mercy) may multiply and overflow? 2Certainly not! How can we who died to sin live in it any longer?


In the physical world, if we were given a pardon or grace by the government, do we go committing the same crimes when we get out. Will we continue to commit the same crimes thinking we will be pardoned again? Will we deceive ourselves and say I have been pardoned and therefore I am under "pardon" (spiritual terms "under Grace") and continue to commit the crimes? No, they will lock you up and throw away the key.

And what did Paul say if we continue to trample on His Grace? Grace is not there for us to live in our weaknesses, bondage, and addictions. Grace is there for us to get things right with God before He comes or before we go to Him gracefully.


Hebrews 10:29 (Amplified Bible)29How much worse (sterner and heavier) punishment do you suppose he will be judged to deserve who has spurned and [thus] trampled underfoot the Son of God, and who has considered the covenant blood by which he was consecrated common and unhallowed, thus profaning it and insulting and outraging the [Holy] Spirit [Who imparts] grace (the unmerited favor and blessing of God)?

Please beloved brethren, yes we are are not perfect and this is why we have Grace. We have Grace to overcome it and shun evil. Fear of the Lord begins when we run from evil. Do not just give up and deceive yourself thinking there is nothing you can do. You have a Choice to fight. You have a Choice to ask God to help you be free. You have a Choice to pray and cry out. Make a Choice to not willfully sin. You have a Choice to return to Him. I have met some who believe they can't go back because they have sinned. As long as you breathe, God is giving you that breathe to repent and Praise HIM!! So do not think your sin is greater than the Blood of Jesus. No sin is greater than the Blood of Jesus.

Proverbs 8:13 (Amplified Bible)13The reverent fear and worshipful awe of the Lord [includes] the hatred of evil; pride, arrogance, the evil way, and perverted and twisted speech I hate.

During our daily prayers, my wife and I repent and confess for the sins we have committed intentionally and unintentionally. He washes us with His Blood and the devil and his leaches cannot cling their claws on to us build their kingdom. The time we have of our life is not only to serve God but to root out all that is ugly from our hearts. As we move from Glory to Glory, as people see you and I, I hope we have decreased and He has increased and all they may see in us is the Love and manifestation of our Lord, Jesus Christ!

Return to your Beloved Savior if you have not done so in a FULL SURRENDER. Half hearted return or half hearted serving/worshiping the Lord is but blemishes and spots. Return to your Beloved KING OF KINGS, His Mercy and Grace is more than enough to forgive you. Make the choice to FULLY turn back to Him, not half way. BE WILLING TO PAY THE FULL COST OF YOUR LIFE TO FOLLOW HIM AND IN RETURN YOU HAVE EVERYTHING......HIM

GLORY TO HIM

It takes pain to enter the Kingdom of God

Genesis 17:12-14 (Amplified Bible)
12He who is eight days old among you shall be circumcised, every male throughout your generations, whether born in [your] house or bought with [your] money from any foreigner not of your offspring. 13He that is born in your house and he that is bought with your money must be circumcised; and My covenant shall be in your flesh for an everlasting covenant. 14And the male who is not circumcised, that soul shall be cut off from his people; he has broken My covenant.

In the Old Testament, all male child had to be circumcised that were of God's people. Scripture says that it was for an everlasting covenant. But in the New Testament, it did not matter whether the babies were circumcised or not, it was about walking and keeping the commandments. In the New Testament, the circumcision was of the heart.

1 Corinthians 7:19 (Amplified Bible)
19For circumcision is nothing and counts for nothing, neither does uncircumcision, but [what counts is] keeping the commandments of God.

For the New Testament saints, it is about the circumcision of the heart. The physical circumcision of the male child was a foreshadow or representation of what God really desired, a circumcision of the heart.

Deuteronomy 30:6 (Amplified Bible)
6And the Lord your God will circumcise your hearts and the hearts of your descendants, to love the Lord your God with all your [mind and] heart and with all your being, that you may live.
Romans 2:29 (Amplified Bible)
29But he is a Jew who is one inwardly, and [true] circumcision is of the heart, a spiritual and not a literal [matter]. His praise is not from men but from God.

There is purpose and reason why circumcision was on the eighth day, that in itself is a foreshadow. But I want to address my topic. If a mother or father ever experienced watching their baby circumcised, it pains and hurts them to watch the boy screaming in pain. But it is that process of pain that we must enter and pass into the everlasting covenant. The pain of the baby is a foreshadow of the pain one must enter and pass into real  life. Blood is spilled and there is pain. There is no life without death. The pain you must go through is the death of your flesh. It is knowing Truth and once Truth sets you free. But out of pain will come tears of JOY.

If we are the Bride then there will be pain to become one with the Bridegroom. When a man and woman consummates to bind their convenant marriage, there is blood spilled and pain. At least this is how it is suppose to be during consummation but today as so many are worldly, the term "virgin" is almost extinct as many have given themselves over to sin instead. Yes, many of us are all guilty of losing our virginity before God's time and I hope those who have sinned in such a way will have repented.

When we first come to the Lord we are in a sense betrothed. We must stay spiritual virgins as He has washed us with His Blood when we first come with repentance. But sadly, many go and continue to have a love affair with the world breaking God's commandments and continuing to sin. Even if one is betrothed and if one does not get to the honey moon night, God will say to you, "Depart! I never knew you!" This word "knew" is the same word and in the context of Adam "knew" Eve. Do you know the Lord and does He know you?

Matthew 7:23 And then I will say to them openly (publicly), I never knew you; depart from Me, you who act wickedly [disregarding My commands].

Genesis 4:1 AND ADAM knew Eve as his wife, and she became pregnant and bore Cain; and she said, I have gotten and gained a man with the help of the Lord.

Genesis 4:25 And Adam knew his wife again; and she bare a son, and called his name Seth: For God, said she, hath appointed me another seed instead of Abel, whom Cain slew.

So many people think they can just confess Jesus as Lord and half heartedly believe and then go back to their normal lives and assume that is the prequiste for entering the Kingdom of God. So many are decevied. So many have been led astray. They have no power. They have no peace. They are heading towards darkness. When will some of you wake up!!! When will you turn to the LIGHT, FIGHT, and be willing to pay the price of PAIN to enter into everlasting covenant?? When will you realize you must finish the seaon and let God stripe away of the Bablyonian system from your flesh? Do you not realize, you are being broken? Do you not realize it is painful because death is painful? Be alert!! The devil is in your face to take you back to your comfort zone!

Do you not know the process of growth to bear fruit? A seed must be planted, it must be watered, given light, the insects (demons) must be driven away, and the tree must grow. The tree may face storms, it may face intense heat, it must go through many harsh elements. And if it has survived, then from its pain it will  bore FRUIT! So many things can happen before fruit can be bore! Store up your prayers, store up your readings, store up your worship!!!  Do you not know what scriptures says will happen to the tree that does not bear fruit? It will be thrown into the fire, the fires of HELL!!

 Luke 3:8-9 (Amplified Bible)
8Bear fruits that are deserving and consistent with [your] repentance [that is, [a]conduct worthy of a heart changed, a heart abhorring sin]. And do not begin to say to yourselves, We have Abraham as our father; for I tell you that God is able from these stones to raise up descendants for Abraham. 9Even now the ax is laid to the root of the trees, so that every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and cast into the fire.

Even in birth, as the earth travails, pain pain pain before life! Today, many women in birth do not experience the full pain because of medication but pain and birth pains are required before LIFE. And the earth travails in birth pain and from the earth will come the SONS AND DAUGHTERS OF THE MOST HIGH TO WALK IN THEIR CALLING TO DO GREATER WORKS!!! OUR GOD IS GLORIFIED WHEN HIS CHILDREN MANIFEST HIS POWER. OUR GOD IS GLORIFIED WHEN WE EXPRESS HIS EVERLASTING LOVE TO THE WORLD. OUR GOD WILL BE GLORIFIED WHEN WE WILL SHINE IN THE DARK HOUR!!

THE WAR IS HERE AND COMING!!! PREPARE BRIDE OF CHRIST! PREPARE AND PREARE!! FULLY SURRENDER, FULLY FOLLOW! WELCOME YOUR PAIN, WELCOME YOUR TRIBULATIONS AND TRIALS. FROM IT A BEAUTIFUL BRIDE WILL BE FORMED. IN THE OLD DAYS TO MAKE A BEAUTIFUL SWORD, METAL HAD TO BE MELTED AND THEN BEATEN INTO SHAPE. STOP RUNNING, THANK HIM AND LET HIM FINISH THE WORK IN YOU.

James 1:2-4(AMP) 2 Consider it wholly joyful, my brethren, whenever you are enveloped in or encounter trials of any sort or fall into various temptations. 3Be assured and understand that the trial and proving of your faith bring out endurance and steadfastness and patience. 4But let endurance and steadfastness and patience have full play and do a thorough work, so that you may be [people] perfectly and fully developed [with no defects], lacking in nothing.

Acts 14:22 (Amplified Bible)
22Establishing and strengthening the souls and the hearts of the disciples, urging and warning and encouraging them to stand firm in the faith, and [telling them] that it is through many hardships and tribulations we must enter the kingdom of God.

ALL THE GLORY TO HIM

STEVE YONG KIM
When the devil sends his demons against you as you press closer to God, will you shrink back because the assult is too severe or will you hold your ground? When you start to draw towards God, you will be attacked in all fronts. Will you shrink back to ease the assault or will you stand your ground? If the demons told you they will KILL YOU and your family, will you shrink back or stand your ground?

If the demons came and you actually heard them threaten you as you draw closer to God will you acquiesce? Will you now play it safe? Will you no longer spiritually press forward to stay in your comfort zone? As you see your physical world fall apart, will you acquiesce? Will you try to save your life? Or will you take authority and tell the demons to get lost? Will you hold your ground knowing you must have an attitude of MARTYRDOM? That does not mean just your life but everything about it!

There are many who are running from their callings because they fear man. They fear of losing their possessions. They fear the devil. They fear embarrassment from friends/family.

Many are called but few chosen. Only FEW Choose to OBEY! Many have taken the safe route. They have stepped into the wide road.

Hebrews 10:39 (Amplified Bible)
39But our way is not that of those who draw back to eternal misery (perdition) and are utterly destroyed, but we are of those who believe [who cleave to and trust in and rely on God through Jesus Christ, the Messiah] and by faith preserve the soul.

Do not fail your test. We are the children of the MOST HIGHT. We are called to OVERCOME. Scripture says if you are Born of God, you are BORN TO OVERCOME! We are called to take authority over the snakes and demons and over ALL THEIR POWER. His People are Overcomers! His People are Victors! His People do not give up no matter how hard it is...just ask for His Strength. He not give you more than you can handle.

Luke 10:19 (Amplified Bible)
19Behold! I have given you authority and power to trample upon serpents and scorpions, and [physical and mental strength and ability] over all the power that the enemy [possesses]; and nothing shall in any way harm you.

Do not FEAR the devil. Do not FEAR man. FEAR the one who can cast your soul into hell!

Matthew 10:28 (Amplified Bible)
28And do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul; but rather be afraid of Him who can destroy both soul and body in hell (Gehenna).

MY HOUSE shall be called a HOUSE of PRAYER!!

Mark 11:15-17 (Amplified Bible) 15And they came to Jerusalem. And He went into the temple [area, the [a]porches and courts] and began to drive out those who sold and bought in the temple area, and He overturned the [[b]four-footed] tables of the money changers and the seats of those who dealt in doves;
16And He would not permit anyone to carry any household equipment through the temple enclosure [thus making the temple area a short-cut traffic lane].
17And He taught and said to them, Is it not written, My house shall be called a house of prayer for all the nations? But you have turned it into a den of robbers
18And the chief priests and the scribes heard [of this] and kept seeking some way to destroy Him, for they feared Him, because the entire multitude was struck with astonishment at His teaching.

When Jesus walked into the outer courts of the physical temple, he saw the money changers and those who sold items pertaining to the temple sacrifice. They sold doves and maybe even other animals to people who would use them for sacrifice. But when HE saw their conduct and the their greed for commerce, HE overturned their tables and said that they have made it into a den of robbers. In verse 16, the people were using the temple as a short cut when carrying household equipment and the Lord blocked that usage.

The Lord said, "MY HOUSE SHALL BE CALLED A HOUSE OF PRAYER FOR ALL THE NATIONS!! BUT YOU HAVE TURNED IT INTO A DEN OF ROBBERS!!"

We can view the temple in two folds. First, we will look at it as the physical building. Second, the temple is also His church which is His people. The temple of God  is now in His people. We are the temple of God.

I do not know how the churches are looking in Europe, Asia, Canada, or other countries but I would not be surprised if they are more looking and following like the American churches. Many countries tend to follow the western churches. They are basing success with the measurement of money.

 Many churches in America are luring members from their communities with worldly enticements. A month ago, God had us attend and observe a fairly large church. They held three services on Sunday. We attended the second service at 10:45 AM. When we walked into the doors, we saw a coffee cafe upstairs. On our right were stands selling their programs. Their current program was to help people dealing with depression. They even had pizza fellowship night for $10 a person.  They allowed their members to use God's church as a venue to sell from their personal jobs. In fact, all the programs had a fee. We went for 4 weeks. One week, I saw a table for Mary Kay and the following week, they were sellling insurance.When worship started, where 500 people stood, we sang three songs and only a handful of people raised their hands. Where are the prayers? Where is the HOUSE OF PRAYER? How could they be so BLIND?

Several months ago, as I watched the Christian channel, I saw a pastor preaching while he was working out on a fitness equipment. He was riding a elliptical. An elliptical is a cross trainer to stimulate running, stair climbing, and walking. Recently, I have heard many churches are adding fitness gyms into their churches to lure in people.

Now, many other pastors are conjuring up ideas from the pit of hell to lure people into their churches to listen to their water downed compromised truth. Do they not know their actions are causing His House to become a den of thieves? It is but Ichabod!

When will these churches realize when they make HIS HOUSE A HOUSE OF PRAYER, THEN THE POWER OF GOD WILL RESIDE. HIS GLORY WILL RESIDE AND HIS GLORY WILL BEGAN TO HEAL PEOPLE, FREE PEOPLE, AND DELIVER PEOPLE. The Glory of God will lure people. People need to hear TRUTH. People need to GET ON THEIR KNEES AND REPENT! WE DO NOT NEED TO GET ON OUR KNEES IN A FITNESS ROOM LOCATED IN A CHURCH BEFORE OR AFTER SERVICE!!

 Instead of praying, many of God's people are being lured to become 2 minute praying Christians. They are being led astray to become 1 hour gym enthusiasts built in our churches? Instead of praying on their knees before service, they are buying and sipping coffee in a coffee cafe in a church? Instead of praying on their knees for deliverance, they are going to humanistic 12 step program for their addictions? Instead of praying on their knees before or after church, they are talking about Green Bay or Steelers. Who are they glorying? They are stealing His Glory!! Instead of getting together to pray, they are selling pyramid schemes to one another. Instead of becoming prayer warriors, they have come to church to find someone to date.

Jeremiah 7:9-11 (Amplified Bible)
9Will you steal, murder, commit adultery, swear falsely, burn incense to Baal, and go after other gods that you have not known,
10And [then dare to] come and stand before Me in this house, which is called by My [a]Name, and say, [By the discharge of this religious formality] we are set free!--only to go on with this wickedness and these abominations?
11Has this house, which is called by My Name, become a den of robbers in your eyes [a place of retreat for you between acts of violence]? Behold, I Myself have seen it, says the Lord.

Where is the temple of God now?

 1 Corinthians 3:16 (Amplified Bible)
16Do you not discern and understand that you [the whole church at Corinth] are God's temple (His sanctuary), and that God's Spirit has His permanent dwelling in you [to be at home in you, [a]collectively as a church and also individually]?

1 Corinthians 3:16 (New King James Version)
16 Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?

You as an individual, you as a child of God, you as a child of the MOST HIGH is now His Temple. You are now His HOUSE! Are you a House of Prayer or are you a House of den of thieves. What are you doing as an individual? Are you a child of the MOST HIGH doing what a child of the MOST HIGH does...prays? Or are you filling HIS HOUSE with other idols? Are you filling HIS Temple with hours of nonsense TV, secular music, and other worldly licentious things or are you filling HIS TEMPLE with PRAYERS? Because HIS HOUSE is suppose to be called a HOUSE OF PRAYER. And if you are a 2 minute a day praying professing Christian, your tables are going to be turned upside down  because you are selling yourself to the world and when HE shows up you will not recognize His Voice because the voice you will recognize is only the WORLD'S!

Isaiah 56:6-8 (Amplified Bible)
6Also the foreigners who join themselves to the Lord to minister to Him and to love the name of the Lord and to be His servants, everyone who keeps the Sabbath so as not to profane it and who holds fast My covenant [by conscientious obedience]--
7All these I will bring to My holy mountain and make them joyful in My house of prayer. Their burnt offerings and their sacrifices will be accepted on My altar; for My house will be called a house of prayer for all peoples.
 8Thus says the Lord God, Who gathers the outcasts of Israel: I will gather yet others to [Israel] besides those already gathered.

You better get on your knees and PRAY! Do you not realize what God is saying through His servants? Difficult and dark days are coming on to the world and if are not spiritual strong, you will NOT SURVIVE! FACEBOOK DOES NOT COUNT AS PRAYING!!! If you got the gift of tongue, you should be praying while driving in your car, while walking, while jogging, during your break, you must pray unceassingly. Time is running out! Store up your prayers. If you do not have the gift of tongue, then GET ON YOUR KNEES AND ASK! Ask and ask until you receive!

PRAY AND PRAY AND BE BAPTIZED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT!!! YOU MUST BE BAPTIZED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT TO BE READY FOR WHAT IS ABOUT TO COME ON THE WORLD!!!  BE BAPTIZED BY HIM WITH FIRE!!! PRAY FOR HIS BAPTISM!! HE WILL NOT SHARE HIS TEMPLE WITH ANYONE OR ANY THING! HE IS GATHERING A PEOPLE WHO PRAYS! HE IS GATHERING A PEOPLE FOR HIS HOUSE OF PRAYER!! DO YOU NOT SEE THE STORM COMING??? LORD HAVE MERCY ON A STIFFED NECKED PEOPLE!! MERCYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! PRAY FOR MERCY!!!!!!!!

A Word from the Lord, Fully Trusting Him.

"Many of My children do not know how to Fully Trust Me because they are used to trusting something or someone else. So they do not know the true meaning of Trusting Me. They think trusting ME is reading the bible, saying some prayers, and calling out to Me and they think that is Trust. But true Trust is giving your heart to Me. Giving your heart to Me and with NO second thought for another option or solution! Do not ponder on a second solution. I am the first solution and the last solution. Do not set your own plans in case it does not work out because you are thinking of something else just in case it may not work out with Me. There is no second plan of your own!!  If you have that thought then you do not have FULL trust in Me. Therefore My miracles and deliverance will not come to you because I will NOT BE MOCKED. I will NOT BE MOCKED!

You must FULLY trust ME even if you have to LOSE EVERYTHING because you may lose it anyway without Me. My children you have to Trust and depend on Me. You have to think and pray and pray and ask what True dependency is about. What is True dependency? Because most of you have not learned what Ture Trust is about. Just get rid of all your second or back up plans. Every plan you have, get rid of it!! There is no plan besides MINE! I am your PLAN! Do not plan yourself, just ask Me, cry out to Me! Why can't you just Trust Me? Why can't you just ask Me? Do you not think I will provide? Your second plan, get ride of it! Your thoughts and ideas, just get rid of it! You don't have to add it onto My Plan. DO NOT MOCK ME MY CHILDREN!! I AM THE CREATOR, I DO NOT NEED YOUR HELP!! I created everything and I will finish everything. It is only ME. I am the only ONE to be GLORIFIED. Only those who fully trust ME will be delivered. Only those who fully trust ME. I will not share with your plan or with your thoughts and ideas. I will not share MY GLORY with you. Either Trust FULLY or none at all!!"

Thus says the Lord

Please translate into your respective languages as the Lord leads you.

Is telling our children about Santa Claus, the Easter bunny, and the tooth fairy harmful?

Christmas is in the winter and then we have Easter in spring. When our children lose their teeth, many have them hide their tooth waiting for the tooth fairy. Many parents think this is all for fun and innocent but is it really that innocent?
So as a child grows up, a typical parent may get their children to believe in Santa Claus, the Easter bunny, and the tooth fairy. They come to believe it is all for fun and their is no harm. Now, if they are a Christian family they would probably teach their children about God and Jesus Christ as well.

Now, as the child grows up, he/she is figuring out that Santa, the Easter bunny, and the tooth fairy do not really exist. They may typically bring it up to the parent and the parent would confess that it was all for fun. Or maybe, the child may just grow out of it. The child knows he/she been had. But, hey, it was all done in the name of fun!

Many think all this is fun and innocent but is it? In my family, we do not teach our children about Santa Claus, the Easter bunny, or the tooth fairy. When our child loses a tooth, we have her put it under her bed and we tell her that Jesus is the one that brought her the money. After all, it is all the Lord's. Some parents think we are a bit nutty not to participate with Santa Claus role playing and such.

But you see, the Lord has revealed something very important to me. Even though many may think it is all for fun, they are unknowingly perhaps setting up their children for a big fall. Many parents tell their children there is a Santa Claus, a Easter bunny, and a tooth fairy and when they are of age they find out there are no such things, their ability to believe in their parents may have consequences.

Now that the parents have basically lied to their children about certain fictional heroes and they had them truly believe in them with presents under the tree and money under the pillow, they are going to try to get them to believe in God whom they may have not seen?

Parents have told them about Santa Claus, the Easter bunny, and the tooth fairy and now they are telling them that there is a God that exists? And by the way, we have to compete with the schools and the science classes that are trying to teach our children that we came from a monkey but at least they're going say they are preaching facts, not fairy tales.

I am not writing about this to put down parents but to make awareness that we can damage the belief of children if we do not start telling them simple truth. If we do not, we will be training our children not to trust us. Scripture says let your yes be yes and no be no's.

Why can't we just tell our children that Jesus brought the presents under the tree? Is that not really true? The Lord is the one that provided to the parents to buy presents for the children, not Santa Claus. Who is Santa Claus? Have you rearranged the word Santa? It is Satan. Is that just a coincidence? I do not know but it looks suspicious to me.

Proverbs 18:21 (Amplified Bible) 21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and they who indulge in it shall eat the fruit of it [for death or life].

We need to take that verse more seriously. Let us not give glory to a fictional character. Let us not have our children thank Santa Claus for the presents. Let them give the praise, thanksgiving, and glory to the Lord. Be blessed.

What is a Watchman for the Lord?

Today, I see many people considering themselves a watchman for the Lord. It is very sad because some folks before them have set the precedence of what a watchman is to them. Now, even on Facebook, I see many brothers/sisters continually posting world events. I am not saying posting them is a bad thing. But when their whole day is consumed with news and it is about what the pundits and analysts are saying, it is not a profitable thing to one's soul/spirit. The pundits will stir your soul to make you view one way and that is what do they do best? They blame the other side!! There is no love, it is just a blame game to feed the media industry. It is taking many away from the Lord as their focus becomes on the media and not in His Presence.

I will watch news occasionally as world event materialize but it does not consume my day.  Let us be honest, why are most watching world events in such a way? They are hoping Jesus returns tomorrow so He can whisk them away from their personal tribulation they are experiencing. But the reality is that this time that is given to us must be used to draw closer to Him instead of looking for signs to get out of your personal tribulations.

When I was in my rebellion, I used to watch Fox News for like 4 hours a day. I used to watch Fox News and CNBC Stock News almost all day long. I thought I was educating myself and it even made me feel "smart." I used to day trade and I had made a great deal of money at one point in my life. I though I could beat the system and in many cases I was beating it. I leaned to beat it because I figured it out that it was rigged. During my tenure of watching News all day long, I learned something very important. I learned it was all rigged. Even the sports games are rigged. It was all about money. The politicians, players, news media personal were all puppets to a higher order within the world system. The news media is not giving you news, it is brain washing you. Watch with discernment.

During the Libyan fighting, they showed a footage of supposedly a Gaddafi supporter shooting an unarmed man lying in the streets. Then all of suddenly there is footage of that dead man on a truck.  Or what about Iraq's Hussein? Do you really think his hanging showing up on a phone video is coincidence? The mass eat it up. They will believe what they see. We are visual creatures. It is all rigged. The general public is considered cattle. There is a higher order in control of the world system and events. This is truth.

What is a watchman? Does a watchman watch television and world events to tell people of incoming warnings? Some are so busy looking for media venues, they miss the point. What is the definition of a watchman as GOD DEFINES?

Ezekiel 33:7 (Amplified Bible) So you, son of man, I have made you a watchman for the house of Israel; therefore hear the word at My mouth and give them warning from Me.

A watchman for the Lord is someone who spends time in His Presence and in prayer to wait for His Word to give warnings to His people.

Ezekiel 33:2-11 (Amplified Bible) 2Son of man, speak to your people [the Israelite captives in Babylon] and say to them, When I bring the sword upon a land and the people of the land take a man from among them and make him their watchman, 3If when he sees the sword coming upon the land, he blows the trumpet and warns the people, 4Then whoever hears the sound of the trumpet and does not take warning, and the sword comes and takes him away, his blood shall be upon his own head. 5He heard the sound of the trumpet and did not take warning; his blood shall be upon himself. But he who takes warning shall save his life. 6But if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet and the people are not warned, and the sword comes and takes any one of them, he is taken away in and for his perversity and iniquity, but his blood will I require at the watchman's hand. 7So you, son of man, I have made you a watchman for the house of Israel; therefore hear the word at My mouth and give them warning from Me. 8When I say to the wicked, O wicked man, you shall surely die, and you do not speak to warn the wicked from his way, that wicked man shall die in his perversity and iniquity, but his blood will I require at your hand. 9But if you warn the wicked to turn from his evil way and he does not turn from his evil way, he shall die in his iniquity, but you will have saved your life. 10And you, son of man, say to the house of Israel, Thus you have said: Truly our transgressions and our sins are upon us, and we waste away because of them; how then can we live?
11Say to them, As I live, says the Lord God, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but rather that the wicked turn from his way and live. Turn back, turn back from your evil ways, for why will you die, O house of Israel?

Ezekiel 33:3 If when he sees the sword coming upon the land, he blows the trumpet and warns the people,

What does the trumpet represent? Blow the trumpet!!!

Exodus 19:16 (Amplified Bible)16The third morning there were thunders and lightnings, and a thick cloud upon the mountain, and a very loud trumpet blast, so that all the people in the camp trembled.

Revelation 4:1 (Amplified Bible) 1AFTER THIS I looked, and behold, a door standing open in heaven! And the first voice which I had heard addressing me like [the calling of] a [a]war trumpet said, Come up here, and I will show you what must take place in the future.

The trumpet is God's VOICE!!! Listen and Heed to His Reproof as it is blown. Turn from your Sins and Repent. Return to your First Love. Return and turn to Him now in your comfort. The trumpet is blowing. He is warning His Church to wake up! Wake up Bride of Christ. Wake up from your slumber. Separate yourselves from the world. Walk in His Commandments and in Holiness.

All the Glory to HIM

Faith to Move a Mountain

Matthew 17:20 (Amplified Bible)20He said to them, Because of the littleness of your faith [that is, your lack of [a]firmly relying trust]. For truly I say to you, if you have faith [[b]that is living] like a grain of mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, Move from here to yonder place, and it will move; and nothing will be impossible to you.

A mustard seed is the size of 1 to 2 mm in diameter. Jesus said that if you have the faith like a grain of mustard see, you can move a mountain. I first met the Lord at the age of 12 when I got saved. During my youth, as many probably had, we probably looked at a real mountain and said to it, "Move!" But, as most, if not all of us, have expereinced, it did not move.

We must question our faith to determine if it is genuine. Every confessing "Christian" claims to "believe" and they claim to have "faith." Even the Catholics, JW, Mormons, and SDA's all claim some form of belief and faith. Mainstream christianity all claim to have faith and belief. What is faith? What is to believe?

Many are believing and thinking they have faith for healing. Is healing coming? Many are believing and thinking for provisions? Is provisions coming?

The verse is not only talking about the possibility of moving a real mountain but if you dig deeper, you will see that it is more than just a mountain. What is your mountain? Is your mountain a sickness? Is your mountain finances? Is your mountain family restoration? Is your mountain lonliess? Is your mountain addictions? Is your mountain bondage? What is your mountain?

The problem is not claiming to have faith. Everyone claims to have faith. The problem is knowing how faith works! Too many people who compromise Truth, who compromise to sin, who compromise Grace, who compromise walking in God's commandments are compromising the definition of faith. It has become nothing but a cliche. What is faith? Is faith a thought? Is faith an emotion? Is faith "to think and so you are?" Is it that easy?

You can read Hebrews chapter 11 and the authorl is attempting to the reader to define Faith. Faith is action!!!! Faith grows with Grace as you move from Glory to Glory. You must have faith like a mustard seed. What do you do with a seed? You must plant it. You must plant your faith in good soil. You must water it. You must give it light. You must tend to the crop as it grows. You must labor it to remove the insects (demons). You must wait for your harvest for the fruit. You must wait for your breakthrough!!

You do not need a large seed to begin with, you only need a tiny one. You must plant it in good soil. You must continue to drink from the Living Water of Christ. You must continue to bask in His Light (worship, read, and pray). You must use your amour to fight off the demons, bind and cast out!! You have the authority and power as a child of God.  You must protect what you have believed in. You cannot give up, you must continue in your faith and wait for the harvest. You must wait for the fruit. Even in real farming, your harvest can be destroyed. You must be careful, the devil will come to destroy your faith at harvest time when it counts! The devil tactifully waits until harvest time to come after you. Because it is after we have put in so much of ourselves, if it gets destroyed, we may fall the farthest down. You must continue to persevere and endure, keeping the faith and praying, the devil will come at the end. But at the same time, God is coming as well. Will you persevere to the end?

Matthew 17:20 says because of the lack of faith which is lack of Trusting and relying on God. Will you abandon your crop because you cannot see it to the end for the fruit? Will you abandon your crop because the work is too hard? Is praying too hard for you? Is reading and worshiping too hard for you? Press forward!!! Press in!!! Do not drop your crosses!! Do you not have the patience to wait for the harvest? Or do you not believe a harvest can be obtained? Where is your faith to persevere?

God is not a fast food drive through. HE is not a microwave! He is long suffering! He is patient! He has all the time in the world! HE is working on your behalf if you just wait for Him.

2 Peter 3:9 (Amplified Bible) The Lord does not delay and is not tardy or slow about what He promises, according to some people's conception of slowness, but He is long-suffering (extraordinarily patient) toward you, not desiring that any should perish, but that all should turn to repentance.

Whatever your mountian may be, will you continue to pray believing? I  know it is hard but will you continue to worship? I know you are tired but will you continue to read? I know you want to give up sometimes but will you continue to do His Will? Will you continue knowing a harvest is coming? Or will you fool yourself because you are expecting everyone else to do the work for you and the only effort you want to do is think it and claim it as faith? Faith is action! Believing is action! Just as a farmer must work long hours in his field, will you pray for long hours? Will you worship for long hours? Will you do the Father's will for long hours? Will you OBEY? Faith is reacting to God's Word and His Will.

And when harvest time comes, your faith will bring lushful fruit for the Kingdom of God. It is now when you can say, "MOVE MOUNTAIN!! I am healed! I am restored! I am Free! Breakthrough!!!! There is an appointed time for all things. There is an appointed time for the harvest but will you keep the faith as a farmer keeps his land knowing and believing a harvest is coming?

Matthew 13:31-32 (Amplified Bible)31Another story by way of comparison He set forth before them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is like a grain of mustard seed, which a man took and sowed in his field.32Of all the seeds it is the smallest, but when it has grown it is the largest of the garden herbs and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and find shelter in its branches.

If you persevere, endure, and continue in your faith, your faith will grow to the largest of garden herbs and it will become a tree and you will bear much fruit. The birds of the air will come and find shelter in your branches. People will be drawn to you because of your genuine faith. People will be drawn to you because of the good fruit you bear. People wil be drawn to you because you contain from your growth the Liviing Water of Christ and the LIGHT of God.

Matthew 24:13 (Amplified Bible)13But he who endures to the end will be saved.

Everyone will claim to have faith. But you will be tested to determine if your faith is genuine. And only those who endure to the end shall be saved. You must endure brethren. You must persevere. Do not quit. He is coming!!! He is coming!! It is going to get difficult. Dark days are upon us and drawing nearer. Many of you will be tested severely. Please hold on and endure to the end even unto your life.

I give all the Glory to God

Too many complaining for selfish reasons

There are too man Christians who still do not understand the term of losing one's life to save it. There are too many Christians who think God needs their help. There are too many Christians who are being misled by resentment, bitterness, and anger. God does not need our help. He needs us to obey! God's ways are higher. When will Christians understand the fight is not carnal. It is spiritual. The fight is not against each other or men. The fight is against the principalities and the evil spirits.

Ephesians 6:12 (Amplified Bible)12For we are not wrestling with flesh and blood [contending only with physical opponents], but against the despotisms, against the powers, against [the master spirits who are] the world rulers of this present darkness, against the spirit forces of wickedness in the heavenly (supernatural) sphere.

We must have the LOVE and the HEART of the Father. It is required to enter the Kingdom of God.  Jesus understood this for He came to give His LIFE. When will most Christians understand they must now have the mentality to give up their lives? When will they start to deny oneself and began crucifying their flesh? When will they ask for the Holy Spirit's help?

When they came for Jesus, He was willing to go. He knew they had come to kill Him. He would not only go willingly but He knew He would suffer greatly. He would be kicked. He would be beaten beyond recognition. He would be kicked and punched. He would be mocked. He would be whipped. Sadly, they were His people who would be doing all this with the help of the Romans.

This was after all the King of Kings! He is God! He is God of the UNIVERSE! He did not have to take it. He did not have to let a bunch of little weak ignorant men, His creation, drag Him like that.  But Peter thought he could help Jesus. Peter thought there was another way. He understood the situation at that time with his own understanding and wisdom. He thought he had to protect the Lord. He took up physical arms, his sword and struck one of the men and cut a ear off. But how did Jesus reply? Did Jesus say, "Go for it Peter!" No, Jesus REBUKED him.

On the surface, Peter appeared to be a zealous servant of God who wanted to do things right. It appeared he loved the Lord very much. It appeared he was willing to fight and die for the Lord. It appeared right in his own eyes to take up arms and defend Truth! I am sure he asked himself what would be wrong with such an action? After all, Peter must have been thinking he was fighting wicked evil men who were coming to kill the Son of God.

Matthew 26:51-53 (Amplified Bible)51And behold, one of those who were with Jesus reached out his hand and drew his sword and, striking the body servant of the high priest, cut off his ear.52 Then Jesus said to him, Put your sword back into its place, for all who draw the sword will die by the sword.(A)53 Do you suppose that I cannot appeal to My Father, and He will immediately provide Me with more than twelve legions [[a]more than 80,000] of angels?

Jesus replied in verse 53, "Do you suppose that I cannot appeal to My Father, and He will immediately provide Me with more than twelve legions [[a]more than 80,000] of angels?"

The Lord had the ability to call His angels and take care of these men. Jesus was God. He can defend Himself. But Jesus did not come to destroy. He came to die for such as those men who were taking him to death. He came to suffer greatly for them. Why? Because He Loved them and He said to Father, "Forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing."

There are too many Christians who are like Peter before He was baptized by the Holy Spirit and Fire. He was a denier and a fleshly carnal follower. He wanted to take things in his own hands thinking he was doing it right.

Just as today, there are too many Christians who think they are doing a service for God by bashing and slandering their governmental leaders and spiritual leaders. They do not understand spiritual authority and if they continue to usurp God's authority without repenting, they at the end will perish.  They are but drawing their sword to strike. And Jesus said, "all who draw the sword will die by the sword.

One person on Facebook said that Obama was a wicked evil person. He said he was praying for him. He was praying for him to be removed. I do not defend Bush or Obama but it is not our place to slander and attack them personally. Our jobs as Christians is to pray for them and this nation. Why do people attack our leaders? The bottom line is because of their pocket books or for some ideology. Many Christians consider Obama or Bush their enemy. Many come to believe Obama is the Anti-Christ with no proof or direct Word from God? They say, he may be the Anti-Christ. I asked them why are they planting such a seed into peoples' mind to stumble them? Many are speaking out of their flesh. These people watch too much news. They watch too much Fox News and CNN. They focus on media instead of Jesus.

If you lost your job, if wickedness is abounding in this nation, if immorality is abounding in this nation, whether you want health care or not, or whatever is happening economically to this nation and so on and so on it is not Obama or Bush's fault. We Christians will be held accountable for letting it ALL HAPPEN ON OUR WATCH!!! AND SOME OF YOU CALL YOURSELVES WATCHMEN? ITS MORE LIKE COMPLAINERS AND GRUMBLERS. INSTEAD OF GETTING ON YOUR KNEES AND PRAYING, MOST OF YOU ALL PLAYED THE HARLOT AND PARTICIPATED WITH THE WORLD THUS BRINGING JUDGMENT ON TO THIS NATION AND TO YOURSELVES.

Matthew 5:44 (Amplified Bible)44But I tell you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you

God's people do not slander others. We pray for them. We love them. We pray for those who would KILL US just as Jesus prayed for those who crucified HIM. Where is your LOVE?? Search your hearts! Many of you slander and bash out of your own selfishness! Some of you think revolution because you let Mormons like Glen Beck plant seeds of rebellion into your souls and minds. Why would you want to listen to a Mormon anyway? Someone who denies our Lordship of Jesus Christ!!!!! You listen because he stirs up your flesh? He can get the economy going so you can be comfortable again? Ponder on the following verse. Many of you still looking to stay in your comfort zone, unwilling to really DIE FOR CHRIST! Do you not know Christianity flourishes in persecution!! It grows complacent and lazy in abundance and prosperity.

Matthew 16:25 (Amplified Bible)25For whoever is bent on saving his [temporal] life [his comfort and security here] shall lose it [eternal life]; and whoever loses his life [his comfort and security here] for My sake shall find it [life everlasting].

2 Corinthians 10:4 (Amplified Bible)For the weapons of our warfare are not physical [weapons of flesh and blood], but they are mighty before God for the overthrow and destruction of strongholds,

Why would Christians need health care anyway? If you obediently followed God and followed His Commandments, do you not know the promise of health? Too many of you still clinging onto the Babylonian system and not Christ.  If you lost your job, why not get on your knees and pray instead of depending on the government? If homosexuality is entering our schools, why not get on your knees and battle with prayer? Many of you would spend time to write your congressmen and possibly picket but will not GET ON YOUR KNEES AND PRAY? Why are many of you WASTING SO MUCH TIME ON THE TV SCREEN TO TELL ME AND OTHERS WHAT WE ALREADY KNOW? GET ON YOUR KNEES AND GIVE ME REVELATION!!!! GIVE ME DEPTH OF HIS WORD!!! GIVE ME SPIRITUAL FOOD TO EAT!!!

Do not be led astray. You must have the Heart of Father God! When Korah came against Moses, Moses got on HIS FACE and prayed for Mercy!! He did not say, "Go get them God!" He cried for mercy! He sent Aaron to pray for mercy as the angel of death pass through the people. But at the end, Korah's clan was sent to Sheol's alive and 14,000 of God's people were DEAD and in HELL!! Korah had the nerve to say to Moses, "We hear God too!!" But he rebelled against God's appointed. Rebellion is witchcraft! Your stubbornness is idolatry.

1 Samuel 15:23 (Amplified Bible)23For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as idolatry and teraphim (household good luck images). Because you have rejected the word of the Lord, He also has rejected you from being king.

If you want healing for our nation, then HUMBLE yourselves and TRULY SEEK HIS FACE!! Stop complaining! Stop blaming others for your problems. Maybe you are being tested as Job. Will you Praise Him in the Storm or will you just complain like Job's wife! If a government or people would come and kill your family, would you still Praise God knowing they are home now or will you resent in anger? If you are a Christian, you should always have the attitude of martyrdom, not fighting back with the sword drawn.

 2 Chronicles 7:14 (Amplified Bible)14If My people, who are called by My name, shall humble themselves, pray, seek, crave, and require of necessity My face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven, forgive their sin, and heal their land.

GOD'S PEOPLE WILL BE KNOWN BY THEIR ABILITY TO WALK IN LOVE TO GIVE THEIR LIVES EVEN FOR THEIR ENEMIES. THEY WILL NOT BE KNOWN BY HOW DOGMATIC THEY ARE ON A SUBJECT OR THEIR POSITION!!.......

VICTORY WILL BE ACHIEVED ON YOUR KNEES IN PRAYER!!!

Romans 13:1-7 (Amplified Bible)1LET EVERY person be loyally subject to the governing (civil) authorities. For there is no authority except from God [by His permission, His sanction], and those that exist do so by God's appointment.(A)2Therefore he who resists and sets himself up against the authorities resists what God has appointed and arranged [in divine order]. And those who resist will bring down judgment upon themselves [receiving the penalty due them].3For civil authorities are not a terror to [people of] good conduct, but to [those of] bad behavior. Would you have no dread of him who is in authority? Then do what is right and you will receive his approval and commendation.4For he is God's servant for your good. But if you do wrong, [you should dread him and] be afraid, for he does not bear and wear the sword for nothing. He is God's servant to execute His wrath (punishment, vengeance) on the wrongdoer.5Therefore one must be subject, not only to avoid God's wrath and escape punishment, but also as a matter of principle and for the sake of conscience.6For this same reason you pay taxes, for [the civil authorities] are official servants under God, devoting themselves to attending to this very service.7Render to all men their dues. [Pay] taxes to whom taxes are due, revenue to whom revenue is due, respect to whom respect is due, and honor to whom honor is due.

ALL THE GLORY TO HIM

Life and Death - Pastor Kim, Yong Do, Baptize by Blazing Fire

Numbers chapter 16

 As we read the word of God, not only should we engrave the words of blessings but we should also engrave God’s words of discipline (warning) into our hearts.

  As we read the disciplining (warning) words of God, we must read it with reverence and with a trembling heart. But when we read God’s words of blessings, we must thoroughly receive it with a thankful and joyful heart.

   In Numbers 16, you will read about how the Israelites received punishment from God as a result of their disobedience and rebellious behavior. The people of Israel were dwelling in the wilderness where it offered nothing. It was a desolated abandoned place of land.

  The pillar of cloud and the pillar of fire led their way. Korah, Dathan, Abiram and On had become insolent. They had gathered together to form a party and rebelled against God. They began to vent out their anger against the messengers of God who were Moses and Aaron. They were complaining about the things around them. They were complaining of the endless wilderness. They were questioning the promised land.

 The land of Canaan flowing with milk and honey seemed very far and unrealistic. The Israelites did not know they were the blessed people. It is the same to us as well, it does not matter how much trials, pain, and hurts we must experience, we are the blessed people of God. We must always communicate with God through our prayer. We are also blessed with His gifts and one of the blessed gift is the “Holy Fire”.

   Unlike our situation, the Israelites did not have any income. They did not have land to farm on. They did not have wells to drink from. The land in which they wandered was abandoned land. The Israelites had to totally depend on Moses and Aaron.

   They had left Egypt and as they wondered in the wilderness, they had admired the blessed land of Canaan. But before entering the blessed land, they were placed in strict training so that they could become God’s true people.

   It is the same for us. Just as the Israelites were trained in the wilderness for 40 years without extra food, clothes and shelter, we are also now in training as we still hold on to the promise of entering the land of Canaan. The wilderness is equivalent to a boot camp.

   Before we believed onto Jesus, we lived our lives as we had desired according to the world. But once we accepted Jesus as our Lord and Savior, we now understand that it is not a one day thing. Becoming a Christian is not about celebrating a day out the year such as Christmas.

   The Lord’s church in Korea is like a boot camp. If you come and attend our church (the Lord’s church) you will have your spiritual eyes opened. A true church must have the power to overcome the gates of hell!

  The Israelites were placed in the wilderness to be trained just as any normal Christian is put to training. When the Israelites lived in Egypt, they did not have any spiritual concerns. Their only concern was to be physically comfortable.

   When the Israelites lived as slaves, they did not know the meaning of responsibility. Their only desire was to obtain comfort and be nonchalant.

 It is the same for the worldly people today. Before we believed in Jesus, that was our desire. Our only concern was to have a more comfortable life. Our concerns were on how to make more money, get the promotion, get more education, buy more expensive cars, buy more houses, and etc. These were our standards for defining a successful good life. THIS IS BUT THE LIFE OF A SLAVE.

   But once we are God’s chosen people and no longer a slave, we have responsibilities to attend. Even after witnessing the 10 plagues of Egypt and deciding to follow God, they still died in their wilderness due to their disobedience and rebellious behavior. We must obey 100% of God’s word. If we disobey God’s word, we will die while we are in our wilderness.

   The Israelites must have been very distressed. They thought only if they could enter the land of Canaan within their life time. But God tells us that we must persevere and endure our trials and tribulations. God encourages us with His words. We are in a process of becoming a soldier who will conquer the land of Canaan. He changes us.

   The Lord’s church is the boot camp. You must be properly trained so that you can become God’s army.
   Viewing or watching from a television or video screen will not be sufficient for the training one has to go through. The television or videos will not show all the difficulties or the procedures during the training. The only time you are able to watch the soldiers who are on TV are the ones who have already graduated their training.

If you come to the Lord’s church, all your childish human nature will be exposed. All your unclean words and thoughts will be exposed. We must be honest and sincere. If we are not honest and sincere, God cannot use us. If your weaknesses are exposed before God, you must accept it and agree instantly to correct it. But, if you continue to give excuses and defend yourself, God will not use you.

 Your personality and character must become properly trained and equipped. Otherwise, when you receive any spiritual gifts, it may lead to your degeneration and corruption. A person will then eventually use the gifts to destroy the church. We must be pure in heart and motive.

 Even though you persistently insist you are in the right, what are you going to do if the Lord said you are not? You must have an attitude to receive all the training and discipline in the wilderness by God.

  When you read Numbers 16, the training and the way they were dealt with were all exposed. We must have our weaknesses exposed as we go through the training and we must correct our exposed problems. When our weakness and problems are exposed, we must repent.

Some people falsely prophesy by using their gift of prophesy, and then when it does not come to pass, they just ignore or pretend that it never was said. These people must repent fiercely!!

 When the sins of your past are exposed, you must fiercely repent! Some people falsely prophesy and insist that it is their mission to give the messagae. But if the mission is given by God, it will not lie.

 Their “mission” will ruin someone’s life. In Numbers, it describes how the Israelites disobey and sinned against God.
 When we are in our wilderness and going through the difficult training, we must remember the word of God. We must ask God to help us of our disobedience and cowardice. Through this difficult training, the Israelites entered into the land of Canaan.

True shepherd must teach (educate) people not to lie. Just as parents teach their kids not to lie.
 Before Parents emphasize God’s words into their children, they must first be obedient and pure in their action and heart. Until the day we enter the kingdom of God, family is very important. Family itself is God’s army. God’s army fights against sin. If the father is the one in training, this means the wife and children are also in training. The head of the family must clearly perform reasonable judgment. He must avoid unnecessary disciplining.

You must pray and pray. You must endure all your stresses. We are in training to learn endurance. If parents are not properly disciplined, then their children will have to be the spiritual vigilants.

Somebody must cling on to God and pray. Only through the prayers of people will God give a miracle. There was a true story. A mother of two children died due to abusive beatings of her husband. She died miserably. When the mother arrived at the gate of Heaven with the angels, she saw her two children’s spirits praying as they were crying. That was what was happening in the spiritual realm but with physical eyes, her young children were sorrowfully praying to God in front of their mom’s dead body. Two angels who were with the mother’s soul had permission from God to take the mother’s soul back to her dead body. God sent her back to earth. It was because of her two children’s earnest prayer. This testimony tells us that when we earnestly pray to God, the spiritual realm will move and miracles will happen.

 Marrying just to satisfy our sexual desire is no different from animals. Christians must pray with firm determination. They must pray with the responsibility for their families. Whether it is a husband or a wife, they must earnestly pray to have good influences on their children. This is proper parenting.

   Now back to Numbers 16, Korah, Dathan, Abiram and On are beginning to go against Moses. The leaders are also getting angry at Moses because they are the only ones able to command. They are discontent for having to follow Moses and Aaron.

    They united against Moses and Aaron and said, “You have gone too far! The whole community of Israel has been set apart by the Lord, and he is with all of us. What right do you have to act as though you are greater than the rest of the Lord’s people?” (Numbers 16:3) 

 What they are saying sounds logical and sound good on the surface but it is all humanism. Democratically, they conjure an assembly and lead the matter based on the decision of a majority. On the surface, it all seems reasonable but it is not right before the eyes of the Lord.

Why did God speak only through Moses and Aaron? The chief priest must possess words that will save souls! From their words and preaching, the love of souls must come out as well. Their heart must be filled with the love of souls. Only then will their people who are under their authority persevere and endure the wilderness. The pastors must have the ability to discern how earnestly a person has received his words and/or if the person was blessed by the words spoken. They must have the ability to clarify and discern.

 When you receive power with a calling by God, many people will become jealous of you. The 250 people rebelled against Moses and Aaron.  They said, “Why then did you set yourselves above the Lord’s assembly?”

From the world's point of view, the high and low positions are clearly defined in the work places. People who are in a high position have the power and authority. But since people work for money and if a person desires to quit, he/she can quit at anytime. But when it comes to Christianity, we must persevere whether we are in a high or low position. Nevertheless, there are absolute spiritual authority and differences.

Did Moses lead people according to his plan? Was it all for Moses’ own business or interest? He was leading according to the will and plan of God. It was God’s power that was leading Moses.

There are times when we do have to discuss things in order to get God’s work done. But, nevertheless, the power of God is life and it will lead us. We must have God in us to lead us in all matters.

Moses fell on down his face before God. Satan was behind Korah, Dathan and Abiram. There were additional people who were aligned with them. But what made it worst was that Moses’ sister Miriam rebelled against him as well. But, regardless, God was behind Moses and Aaron.

Moses just fell down on his face before God. Moses fell down on his face before the people. When Satan intensively attacks, you must fall down on your face before God. Since God knew before hand that the people did not have the ability to do as Moses did, God has entrusted the position to Moses.

 As we come closer and closer to God, our ugly and frightening sin will be exposed. As I get closer to God, I am so fearful because so many of my sins are exposed. I feel like I am going to die.  The sin that is in me is so filthy and frightening. All my sin is exposed.

 We must fall on our faces down before God as Moses and Aaron had. If you are called to be a servant of God (pastor), you must become more soft and gentle. You must always give up what you want for others, and no matter how people curse or speak all types of foul language against you, you must just digest it within you and be immune to it. Your personality or character must be trained and disciplined. Just because you possess some type of power does not qualify you as a servant of God (pastor or some types of leadership).

 If your personality and character is not properly trained and equipped, drop your calling. People who are called to be pastor or leaders, they will have to be humbled enough to expose their sins to God and fix it. They must have reverent fear. They must be a people of prayer. They must pray many times a day. They must pray more than their flock. They will have more things that will cause them to be disciplined by God. They will be judged greater. Since God has chosen and called some to be placed in a leadership, they at the same time do not have the option to say no.

If you have a ministry in the Holy Spirit, the forces of demons will not let you be at peace. They will attack your family and children. We sometimes question, “Why aren’t things ever going right even though I am serving the Lord faithfully? I have done so many things to be blessed, why is God not answering me so quickly?”

Before you receive your break through or blessings, you will first experience what something that may appear unjust or unfair. Be sensitive to the opportunities, if you miss the opportunities that God has given you, you will have to deal with the consequences.

When the assembly of Korah had gethered with more people, they were not afraid of anything. As Korah was standing at his tent with his assembly and opposed Moses and Aaron, God instantly destroyed them. Because of Korah’s rebellious behavior, his wives, children and little ones died unreasonably with him.

Even after God killed 250 by opening up the earth and closing it, the Israelites still harassed Moses and Aaron. They do not think about how they were rebelling and disobeying God.

 Korah insisted on humanism, equality, and rationalization. On the surface, they had a good argument. But when it comes to the work of God’s kingdom, we are not to use humanism but seek meekness and love. We must be loyalty to God. There is only one way to prevent the destruction of others. IT IS THROUGH PRAYER.

 Since Moses did not show the Glory of the Lord at Meribah during the striking of the rock for water, his mission had ended. He could no longer enter the land of Canaan.

 If you read Numbers 16, those who came against Moses were punished with plagues. The Israelites complaints and resentments had caused their plagues.

 But with meekness, Moses fell down on his face before God and prayed so that plague would stop. Our life is full of injustice but in order for us to have resolution whether the situation is fair or not, we must obey God’s word.

 It is difficult for us to just march forward and obey. We are in training of everything. But when our training sessions are completed, God will then entrust us with conquering the war in Canaan. I pray that you will complete well in your training and I also pray that you will conquer the land of milk and honey of Canaan. I bless you to bear fruits in Jesus name. Amen.

Transparency is Required to enter the Kingdom of God

The Lord desires transparency from an individual. You must be transparent with Him and others. You must bring it all to the Light. All your hurt, unforgiveness, resentment, anger, hate, bitterness, depression, betrayal, etc. You must make a choice to give it to Him and let it go. Otherwise, you are holding onto it and it will compete with the Lord in your heart.

The devil will use hurt and betrayal to make you hide from God. The devil will use all those negative emotions against you. They are but a heavy thick chain on your neck which is dragging you to HELL! And as the years pass by, the demons add on more chains to make their hold on you stronger. They create a wall of darkness and when someone looks over, you retailiate viciously because it triggered a past/memory. You retailiate because you do not ever want to go back to that place of hurt again.

Just as when Adam and Eve disobeyed and ate the fruit of death, they hid after. Why did they hide? Sin will make you hide!! Sin makes you want to serve and worship Him from a far. But in reality, sin is making you run from Him.

You must let it go! You must let the hurt go. You must let the betrayal go. You must let all the bad memories of peoples' words or hurt go. It is causing you sleepless nights. It is affecting your marriages. It is affecting your relationship with your children. It is affecting your relationship with people. Let it go!!! Be Free and let it go!

He will not share His temple with anyone! He will not share His temple with rage. He will not share His temple with hate. He will not share His temple with resentment. He will not share His temple with hurt. He will not share His temple with regrets. He is giving you Grace to let it go! Grace is there to give you the strength to let it go! But you must make the CHOICE to give it to Him. What are you so afraid of? Are you so afraid of what you will replace the HOLE with if you let anger go? Let it go and let HIM fill that HOLE with His LOVE.

When you are truly Free, there is nothing to hide. There is no reason to hide. We will not be ashamed of our past. We will not be ashamed of what we have experienced. We will use it to Glorify God! We will use it to testify what God has done. He has set us Free!! We will testify so our experience and what God has done will set others FREE. Jesus came to set the captives Free. He came for the His Lost Sheep.

Luke 19:10 "For the Son of Man came to seek and to save that which was lost."

Many of you are His Lost Sheep and do not realize it. Many are sitting in the church pews and you are but captives to the devil. Many do not realize they are part of the Lost Sheep. He is calling you out every Sunday. He is calling you out of your SINS!! He is calling you to set you Free. How can you say you are FREE when you cannot WORSHIP WITHOUT RESTRAINT!! Many cannot Worship without Restraint because they feel guilty of their past, their hurt, their resentment, and so on and so on. You cannot even go up the altar and pour out because of FEAR!! Because you are afraid of exposing that hurt, betrayal, anger, resentment, etc AT THE ALTAR BECAUSE HIS LIGHT MAY SHINE ON THAT DARKNESS AND EXPOSE IT! LET IT BE EXPOSED AND CRY OUT! LET IT BE EXPOSED AND CRY IN HIS ARMS AND LET HIM GIVE YOU THE COMFORT. STOP THINKING OF WHAT OTHERS WILL THINK!!! WHO CARES WHAT THEY THINK!! CRY IF NECESSARY, CRY AND LET IT GO AT HIS FEET. CRY FOR YOUR SELVES. CRY FOR YOUR FAMILES. WHAT ARE YOU AFRAID OF? LET IT GO SO YOU MAY BE TRANSPARENT BEFORE HIM AND MEN!!! LET IT GO!!!

John 10:10 "The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it [a]overflows)."

Otherwise, you will let the demons build their kingdom of darkness in you. And after years and years of sleepless nights, after years and years of letting it EAT YOU ALIVE FROM THE INSIDE OUT, SICKNESS COMES. The devil comes to steal, kill and destroy. He comes to STEAL YOUR FOCUS ON THE LORD. THE DEVIL COMES TO MAKE YOU FOCUS ON YOUR HURT SO YOU CAN DIE IN YOUR SINS!! The Lord is LIFE. The devil comes to take your focus off LIFE. If you carry those painful past memories letting it eat you alive, your focus is OFF LIFE! Do not let the devil steal Life and KILL YOU. He comes to destroy you with sickness as a result of you focusing on that pain for years and year. Then you will DIE IN YOUR SINS.

Let it go! Give it to the Lord. Lay it at His Feet. Repent! Repent! Repent of your anger, bitterness, hate, grudge, etc, whatever you are holding, give it and repent. Focus the eyes of your Heart back on LIFE....BACK ON HIM. No MORE HIDING!! Come and step into the LIGHT and be Transparent before Him and His Angels. Be Transparent before Men. Be Free and Be Free.

Luke 4:18-19 "The Spirit of the Lord [is] upon Me, because He has anointed Me [the Anointed One, the Messiah] to preach the good news (the Gospel) to the poor; He has sent Me to announce release to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to send forth as delivered those who are oppressed [who are downtrodden, bruised, crushed, and broken down by calamity], 19To proclaim the accepted and acceptable year of the Lord [the day [a]when salvation and the free favors of God profusely abound"

In the Name of Jesus, I command the demons to release their tentacles off the the children of the MOST HIGH! I command hurt to go! I command betrayal to go! I command resentment to go! I command anger to go! I command bitterness to go! I command fear to go! Fire of God!!! Fire of God! In the Almighty Name of Jesus, I command the works of the destroyed! I come against the walls of darkness with the Blood of Jesus! I command it to Go! Go!

Be FREE IN HIM Brethren. Be Truly set Free!! Be FREE to Worship HIM without RESTRAINT! Rise up Bride of Christ! Rise up!

Glory to HIM
Fire of God

Which Soil are you in which the Word of God fell onto?

Mark 4:4-9 (Amplified Bible) And as he was sowing, some seed fell along the path, and the birds came and ate it up.5Other seed [of the same kind] fell on ground full of rocks, where it had not much soil; and at once it sprang up, because it had no depth of soil; 6And when the sun came up, it was scorched, and because it had not taken root, it withered away.7Other seed [of the same kind] fell among thorn plants, and the thistles grew and pressed together and utterly choked and suffocated it, and it yielded no grain.8And other seed [of the same kind] fell into good (well-adapted) soil and brought forth grain, growing up and increasing, and yielded up to thirty times as much, and sixty times as much, and even a hundred times as much as had been sown.9And He said, He who has ears to hear, let him be hearing [and let him [a]consider, and comprehend].

Which soil are you in which the Seed fall on? The Seed is the Word of God. A Seed must be planted. It must be given Light and Water to sustane and grow. It must weather the storms. As the Tree grows, it may have to go through drought. It may have to go through fierce rain. It have to overcome all the elements of nature. It has to overcome the insects (demons). The Tree cannot live nor grow without God. For our water is from the Source of Life (Jesus). It is from the Rock or Well of Life. The Tree needs Light to grow. God is LIGHT! God is the LIFE GIVER! Without Water and LIGHT, the Tree will wither and die. You must continue to habitually partake the Lord for Life. It must grow to maturity to produce the fruit it was always intended too.

Scripture also says that faith is like a Seed. Your faith must be planted as well. It may take years to grow and build confidence in Him knowing He is Faithful. There will come a day when your faith will explode and it is then you will have your personal Red Sea parted. It is then when your faith aligns with God's Will, He will tell you to move that mountain in your life and your faith will move it.

Which soil are you? Has the devil came and eaten your seed? Are you mostly rock with little soil? Or is your soil among thorn plants? Or or you good soil in which the Seed is growing?

Mark 4:13-23 (Amplified Bible) 13And He said to them, Do you not discern and understand this parable? How then is it possible for you to discern and understand all the parables?14The sower sows the Word. 15The ones along the path are those who have the Word sown [in their hearts], but when they hear, Satan comes at once and [by force] takes away the message which is sown in them. 16And in the same way the ones sown upon stony ground are those who, when they hear the Word, at once receive and accept and welcome it with joy; 17And they have no real root in themselves, and so they endure for a little while; then when trouble or persecution arises on account of the Word, they immediately are offended (become displeased, indignant, resentful) and they stumble and fall away.18And the ones sown among the thorns are others who hear the Word;19Then the cares and anxieties of the world and distractions of the age, and the pleasure and delight and false glamour and deceitfulness of riches, and the craving and passionate desire for other things creep in and choke and suffocate the Word, and it becomes fruitless.20And those sown on the good (well-adapted) soil are the ones who hear the Word and receive and accept and welcome it and bear fruit--some thirty times as much as was sown, some sixty times as much, and some [even] a hundred times as much.21And He said to them, Is the lamp brought in to be put under a [a]peck measure or under a bed, and not [to be put] on the lampstand?22[[b]Things are hidden temporarily only as a means to revelation.] For there is nothing hidden except to be revealed, nor is anything [temporarily] kept secret except in order that it may be made known.23If any man has ears to hear, let him be listening and let him perceive and comprehend.

How many times have we witnessed people who accepted Jesus Christ and disappeared? How many of them have come to many powerless churches to disappear in about two weeks? Why is our Western Churches only becoming a revolving door? Some call for altar calls and they think their job is done? When will they speak Truth? When will they disclose to those who made a decision to follow Jesus that this is just the beginning of many tribulations? Yes, it is a Glorious day when someone accepts Jesus but they must get the other side of Truth as well. When will they take the time and pay the resources to disciple God's sheep? They must be told that they are now a target for the devil. The devil will come to steal the Seed from them (Verse 15). They must be told even though they are joyful now as they have accepted Christ unless they get rooted in the Word of God, there is a chance they can stumble and fall away when persecution comes(Verse 16-17). They must be told to separate themselves from the world and produce fruit or else they may be seduce away by the cares of the world (Verse 18-19).

They must be told, "Yes Grace has saved you with your faith but there is now work to do! There is work in which God ordained for him/her before the world was created. We are to produce FRUIT! We are known by the Fruit we produce!"

Eph 2:10 "For we are God's [own] handiwork (His workmanship), [b]recreated in Christ Jesus, [born anew] that we may do those good works which God predestined (planned beforehand) for us [taking paths which He prepared ahead of time], that we should walk in them [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us to live]"

If I speak Truth, am I teaching a works based salvation as many may accuse? Grace has saved you but Faith without works is DEAD! Grace continues to work only when we continue to OBEY! But yet, Grace waits patiently with long suffering. My Works is evidence of My Obedience and My Obedience is evidence of My Faith. Faith is not meant to be walked blindly. Only the blind will lead the blind to the ditch. My Faith is not Blind for I know a Promise in which He has spoken to His people. My faith walks toward that Promise. It does not walk blindly in all directions. It walks in concert with His directions given to me.

Many Christians have stumbled and fallen away. The persecutions or fear of being ridiculed has shrunk them. The cares of life have led many astray. They chase other idols and they without knowing the reality are worshiping another god. But many of them are blind and they still profess to know God. They still believe they will enter the Kingdom of God because they have watered down (compromised) the word "BELIEVE." Many know down in their spirits, many know in their hearts they are running from God. Just as Adam and Eve hid when they sinned, many of His people seek Him and "believe" Him from a far hiding. Many are dying in their sins. It is time to WAKE UP from your slumber!! It is time to step into your calling. Everyone has a calling! They have a calling to OBEY!
What do you think will happen to the Tree that has never grown to maturity? What do you think will happen to the Tree that produces NO FRUIT? It is difficult enough working yourself to become Good Soil but the journey only begins once the Seed is planted. It is NOT the End! It is just the beginning of many trials, tests, and tribulations. It is a road in which a price must be paid to carry your own crosses. If your Christian life has been easy, pleasant, and LUKEWARM do NOT THINK you will be raptured. You will get a crash course called the Great Tribulation to test your Faith!

Luke 3:9 (Amplified Bible) Even now the ax is laid to the root of the trees, so that every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and cast into the fire.

Mark 11:12-13 (Amplified Bible) 12On the day following, when they had come away from Bethany, He was hungry.13And seeing in the distance a fig tree [covered] with leaves, He went to see if He could find any [fruit] on it [[a]for in the fig tree the fruit appears at the same time as the leaves]. But when He came up to it, He found nothing but leaves, for the fig season had not yet come.

Mark 11:21-22 21And Peter remembered and said to Him, Master, look! The fig tree which You doomed has withered away! 22And Jesus, replying, said to them, Have faith in God [constantly].

In Verse 22, Jesus replied to Peter's question, "Have faith in God (constantly)." Perhaps the tree did not produce the fruit because its lack of faith in God had delayed its season. How many of you are behind losing important time for the Lord? Do you not realize souls are at stake? Many are called but few are chosen! Many are called!! Who will answer the call? Who will OBEY and answer His call to be His chosen Bride?

Deuteronomy 31:8 (Amplified Bible) It is the Lord Who goes before you; He will [march] with you; He will not fail you or let you go or forsake you; [let there be no cowardice or flinching, but] fear not, neither become broken [in spirit--depressed, dismayed, and unnerved with alarm].
Time to step up! Time to get out of your comfort zone! Time to awaken Bride of Christ! Time to Call upon His Name! Time to walk in our calling! Time to Give Him the Glory He is due! Time to repent and return to your first Love! Time to seek Him now while He may be found!

Glory to Him
Fire of God
