You must decrease and He must INCREASE

When you pray, you must bind and cast out the negative spirits and speak words of life over yourself and your families. For example, speak the nine fruits of the Holy Spirit over yourselves. Speak the seven fold or seven Spirits of the Holy Spirit over yourselves. What are the nine fruits of the Holy Spirit? What are the seven fold or Spirits of the Holy Spirit?

Galatians 5:22-23 (AMP)But the fruit of the [Holy] Spirit [the work which His presence within accomplishes] is love, joy (gladness), peace, patience (an even temper, forbearance), kindness, goodness (benevolence), faithfulness,23Gentleness (meekness, humility), self-control (self-restraint, continence). Against such things there is no law [[a]that can bring a charge].

Revelation 1:4 (AMP)John to the seven assemblies (churches) that are in Asia: May grace (God's unmerited favor) be granted to you and spiritual peace ([a]the peace of Christ's kingdom) from Him Who is and Who was and Who is to come, and from the seven Spirits [[b]the sevenfold Holy Spirit] before His throne,

Isaiah 11:2 (AMP)And the (1)Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon Him--the Spirit of (2)wisdom and (3)understanding, the Spirit of (4)counsel and (5)might, the Spirit of (6)knowledge and of (7)the reverential and obedient fear of the Lord-

A rainbow has seven colors and light contains the seven colors. If you remember chemistry, one can take a prism and let light reflect the colors. There is also meaning in the colors. Even in creation, God is reflected, we just need to look for the deeper things.

Continue to cleans yourselves brethren. Ask the Holy Spirit to remind you of anything from the past that needs to be repented. It will set you free and lift a heavy burden from you. Sanctification is a mandatory requirement. We must exhibit the nine fruits of the Holy Spirit. Crucify the old man. You must decrease and let Him increase.

"The Old Cross and The New" by A. W. Tozer

"Unannounced and mostly undetected there has come in modern times a new cross into popular evangelical circles. It is like the old cross, but different: the likenesses are superficial; the differences, fundamental. 

From this new cross has sprung a new philosophy of the Christian life, and from that new philosophy has come a new evangelical technique -- a new type of meeting and a new kind of preaching. This new evangelism employs the same language as the old, but its content is not the same and its emphasis not as before. 

The old cross would have no truck with the world. For Adam's proud flesh it meant the end of the journey. It carried into effect the sentence imposed by the law of Sinai. The new cross is not opposed to the human race; rather, it is a friendly pal and, if understood aright, it is the source of oceans of good clean fun and innocent enjoyment. It lets Adam live without interference. His life motivation is unchanged; he still lives for his own pleasure, only now he takes delight in singing choruses and watching religious movies instead of singing bawdy songs and drinking hard liquor. The accent is still on enjoyment, though the fun is now on a higher plane morally if not intellectually. 

The new cross encourages a new and entirely different evangelistic approach. The evangelist does not demand abnegation of the old life before a new life can be received. He preaches not contrasts but similarities. He seeks to key into public interest by showing that Christianity makes no unpleasant demands; rather, it offers the same thing the world does, only on a higher level. Whatever the sin-mad world happens to be clamoring after at the moment is cleverly shown to be the very thing the gospel offers, only the religious product is better. 

The new cross does not slay the sinner, it redirects him. It gears him into a cleaner and jollier way of living and saves his self-respect. To the self-assertive it says, "Come and assert yourself for Christ." To the egotist it says, "Come and do your boasting in the Lord." To the thrill-seeker it says, "Come and enjoy the thrill of Christian fellowship." The Christian message is slanted in the direction of the current vogue in order to make it acceptable to the public. 

The philosophy back of this kind of thing may be sincere but its sincerity does not save it from being false. It is false because it is blind. It misses completely the whole meaning of the cross. 

The old cross is a symbol of death. It stands for the abrupt, violent end of a human being. The man in Roman times who took up his cross and started down the road had already said good-by to his friends. He was not coming back. He was going out to have it ended. The cross made no compromise, modified nothing, spared nothing; it slew all of the man, completely and for good. It did not try to keep on good terms with its victim. It struck cruel and hard, and when it had finished its work, the man was no more. 

The race of Adam is under death sentence. There is no commutation and no escape. God cannot approve any of the fruits of sin, however innocent they may appear or beautiful to the eyes of men. God salvages the individual by liquidating him and then raising him again to newness of life. 

That evangelism which draws friendly parallels between the ways of God and the ways of men is false to the Bible and cruel to the souls of its hearers. The faith of Christ does not parallel the world, it intersects it. In coming to Christ we do not bring our old life up onto a higher plane; we leave it at the cross. The corn of wheat must fall into the ground and die. 

We who preach the gospel must not think of ourselves as public relations agents sent to establish good will between Christ and the world. We must not imagine ourselves commissioned to make Christ acceptable to big business, the press, the world of sports or modern education. We are not diplomats but prophets, and our message is not a compromise but an ultimatum. 

God offers life, but not an improved old life. The life He offers is life out of death. It stands always on the far side of the cross. Whoever would possess it must pass under the rod. He must repudiate himself and concur in God's just sentence against him. What does this mean to the individual, the condemned man who would find life in Christ Jesus? How can this theology be translated into life? Simply, he must repent and believe. He must forsake his sins and then go on to forsake himself. Let him cover nothing, defend nothing, excuse nothing. Let him not seek to make terms with God, but let him bow his head before the stroke of God's stern displeasure and acknowledge himself worthy to die. 

Having done this let him gaze with simple trust upon the risen Saviour, and from Him will come life and rebirth and cleansing and power. The cross that ended the earthly life of Jesus now puts an end to the sinner; and the power that raised Christ from the dead now raises him to a new life along with Christ....

Dare we, the heirs of such a legacy of power, tamper with the truth? Dare we... alter the pattern shown us in the Mount? May God forbid. Let us preach the old cross and we will know the old power. "

The enemy uses the same spiritual door to communicate

When some of God's people have the ability to hear His Voice through their calling or gift, it is like a certain door being open into the spiritual realm. But many Christians do not realize this door is the same door the enemy uses to speak as well. Many Christians do not take seriously the depth of the enemy's ability to counterfeit. Brethren, once you receive this gift and you are able to hear God, you must take yourself even lower and know you can be compromised.

It is the same with your visions, dreams, and prophecy. It is the same even in real physical war. Armies may use different frequencies to communicate but they still use the same technology or "door." Once the enemy finds your frequency, they can listen in. Moreover, in war, armies will use disinformation to distract or send false information to their enemy. The demons are no different. They will send God's people disinformation.

If you have received any gifts to communicate with God such as dreams, visions, prophecy, or you can just hear Him loud and clear in your spirit, you must test that voice. When it comes to dreams or visions, you must pray about it and confirm it.

If you have the gift of prophecy or you hear His Voice whether in your spirit or if Jesus shows up, you must call out for the Blood of Jesus or Holy Fire on the message or spirit to test it authenticity.

Just because some have heard or even seen Jesus the first time, instead of being cautious for the future voices or visitations, many take it for granted and let pride enter their walk.

We must walk our journey knowing we CAN get deceived. Our pride, flesh, and the demons can easily deceive us. We must even test ourselves. We are not smarter than then devil. We can be more powerful than him when we are in complete obedience and submission to the Lord.

Please brethren, please pray and ask the Holy Spirit to help you so you do not get deceived, so you do not get corrupted, and you do not fall away. Let us humble ourselves and know we can make mistakes.

1 Corinthians 10:12 (AMP) Therefore let anyone who thinks he stands [who feels sure that he has a steadfast mind and is standing firm], take heed lest he fall [into sin].

Possessing spiritual Gifts can be so dangerous

A few years ago, the Lord taught me that receiving spiritual gifts can be most dangerous to the receiver. Why? Their heads get big which can lead to complacency. And for those who hear or see God, you must continue to test the spirit. For those who can hear or see God more clearly than the average Christian, you will be judged more severely so don't just say "God said."

One who possess spiritual gifts must first possess the biblical Fear of God. One must know there will be severe consequences for misrepresentation or deception.

Even in life, those who are the loudest are the ones with no depth or consistency. To all my brethren out there, I know a lot of confusion has come about. But it is your choice to take it all in prayer and ask the Holy Spirit to lead you. It will be your ultimate choice of what you choose to believe.

If you are not sure, it is best you stay neutral. For if you falsely accuse, you will bring judgment not only for yourselves but your children. I say this to protect you since so many have not read the OT to understand God's Full Counsel.

When we receive spiritual gifts whether we can hear or see God, we must become more humble instead of becoming more LOUD. Many right now seem to be running a marathon to prove themselves.

I keep hearing people shouting, "We need no mentors! We hear God for ourselves!" They should go meditate on Numbers chapter 16. Yes, we should be lead by the Holy Spirit but what about baby Christians who are not able to hear God so clearly? Who do they imitate or follow? Did Paul not say, "Imitate me?" Who are they to lean upon as they grow since they do not hear God so clearly?

What I see is classic Korah's rebellion. They shouted that they did not need Moses because God speaks to them as well. Many of them have no depth or fruit. They come at you with prophecy claiming it is from God. How do you know? There must be consistency. Yes, there may be times when they hear God but is it consistent or is it MIXED?

Numbers 16:2-3 2And they rose up before Moses, with certain of the Israelites, 250 princes or leaders of the congregation called to the assembly, men well known and of distinction. 3And they gathered together against Moses and Aaron, and said to them, [Enough of you!] YOU TAKE TOO MUCH UPON YOURSELVES, seeing that all the congregation is holy, every one of them, and the Lord is among them. Why then do you lift yourselves up above the assembly of the Lord?

I hear that a lot now. "Stop exalting yourselves or man."

 God will deal with all this very soon. As I said, stay neutral and watch and observe. If you falsely accuse and end up on the wrong side of the fence, it will not be pleasant for you or your families. I am not trying to scare anyone but I must tell you real consequences.

Daniel 6:19-24Then the king arose very early in the morning and went in haste to the den of lions. 20And when he came to the den and to Daniel, he cried out in a voice of anguish. The king said to Daniel, O Daniel, servant of the living God, is your God, Whom you serve continually, able to deliver you from the lions?21Then Daniel said to the king, O king, live forever!22My God has sent His angel and has shut the lions' mouths so that they have not hurt me, BECAUSE I WAS FOUND INNOCENT AND BLAMELESS BEFORE HIM; and also before you, O king, [as you very well know] I have done no harm or wrong.23Then the king was exceedingly glad and commanded that Daniel should be taken up out of the den. So Daniel was taken up out of the den, and no hurt of any kind was found on him because he believed in (relied on, adhered to, and trusted in) his God.24And the king commanded, and those men who had accused Daniel were brought and cast into the den of lions, THEY, THEIR CHILDREN AND THEIR WIVES; and before they ever reached the bottom of the den, the lions had overpowered them and had broken their bones in pieces.

Return to the biblical Fear of God and know He is God.

Word from the Lord -So many chances!

"I have given so many chances but many have wasted so much time! All the chances that I have given you wasted. My anger will pour down.  My anger will pour out! But you will see everything move according to My breath. You will see My judgment pouring down from the heavens and My throne! I will shake!

All will be shaken! My Sword will penetrate the fat and belly of the church! My Wrath and Judgment are coming. I am Righteous and My Love for you is Great. I have given many chances. I have given many chances and time. But I have to bring My Judgments. This is the cup. Listen to Me. Listen to My cries. The leaders of the churches have stolen what is Mine. You have fatten yourselves from the sheep. You have swallowed their possessions! You have fatten yourselves from their possessions! You have devoured them.

This is My time, My just will pour down upon you. Leaders, you lazy leaders! I am coming with a ROD! You have piled up the coals of My Wrath upon your heads. This is the time for My Rod is coming! It is coming My children. The leaders of the church have swallowed up My children. You will stumbled them. You have slaughtered them! For I am coming with My ROD!

Where are My Faithful servants! Lazy servants! Where is the mission I have entrusted you? Where have you gone? What did you do? Finally, My Wrath and Judgment must come! The time has come. It will be poured down. The Hour has come! Cry out for Mercy! Cry out and cry out! Many will be struck!"

1 Peter 4:17 For the time [has arrived] for judgment to begin with the household of God; and if it begins with us, what will [be] the end of those who do not respect or believe or obey the good news (the Gospel) of God?

Hebrews 10:26-27

26 For if we go on deliberately and willingly sinning after once acquiring the knowledge of the Truth, there is no longer any sacrifice left to atone for [our] sins [no further offering to which to look forward]. 27[There is nothing left for us then] but a kind of awful and fearful prospect and expectation of divine judgment and the fury of burning wrath and indignation which will consume those who put themselves in opposition [to God].

Jeremiah 25:15-17 
15For thus says the Lord, the God of Israel, to me: Take this cup of the wine of wrath from My hand and cause all the nations to whom I send you to drink it. 16They shall drink and reel to and fro and be crazed because of the sword that I will send among them.17Then I [Jeremiah] took the cup from the Lord's hand and made all the nations drink it to whom the Lord had sent me: [that is,]

Revelation 19:15 From His mouth goes forth a sharp sword with which He can smite (afflict, strike) the nations; and He will shepherd and control them with a staff (scepter, rod) of iron. He will tread the wine press of the fierceness of the wrath and indignation of God the All-Ruler (the Almighty, the Omnipotent).

Know the ways of the Lord so you do not fall into His Judgment. Learn and know His ways are Higher. Learn and Know what He is capable of allowing when He brings Judgment on His people! 

Numbers 25:1-4 ISRAEL SETTLED down and remained in Shittim, and the people began to play the harlot with the daughters of Moab,2Who invited the [Israelites] to the sacrifices of their gods, and [they] ate and bowed down to Moab's gods. 3So Israel joined himself to [the god] Baal of Peor. And the anger of the Lord was kindled against Israel.4And the Lord said to Moses, Take all the leaders or chiefs of the people, and hang them before the Lord in the sun [after killing them], that the fierce anger of the Lord may turn away from Israel.

Peace, be still

The Lord says His ways are higher. Do not try to calculate, estimate, figure out, or evaluate His timing. Many attempt to calculate dates and events out of their own strength including rapture date. God said unless HE gives you that direct revelation, you will not know. Yes, we can know seasons but it is more important to be still and wait upon God. You must empty yourselves so you can be filled with HIM.

Empty yourselves and fill yourselves with His Oil. You must let go of your personal judgments, goals, desires, will, and estimation so the Holy Spirit can fill Himself onto you. Once you empty yourselves, you will be able to hear God's small voice more clearly from all the distractions of the world and even from yourself.

HE is the small voice. He comes in a direction in which most are not looking. HE does things in which most are not expecting. Would you have looked in a barn full of farm animals if you knew the King of Kings were to be born? Or would you have looked where the majority may have looked? The majority probably would have looked in the castles and the rich men's homes. Would you have looked away from the barn because you did not want to get animal dung on your nice shoes and because it smelled? But children who have faith like a child would have looked not caring of the dung on the ground. In fact, children may have thought it would be fun and exciting to play in a barn. Therefore, scripture says, you must have a faith like a child to enter the Kingdom of God.

Acts 1:6-8 (AMP) So when they were assembled, they asked Him, Lord, is this the time when You will reestablish the kingdom and restore it to Israel?7He said to them, It is not for you to become acquainted with and know [a]what time brings [the things and events of time and their definite periods] or fixed [b]years and seasons (their critical niche in time), which the Father has appointed (fixed and reserved) by His own choice and authority and personal power.8But you shall receive power (ability, efficiency, and might) when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you shall be My witnesses in Jerusalem and all Judea and Samaria and to the ends (the very bounds) of the earth.

Emotions are good but seeking the Lord is not an emotional thing. It is not about how loud you can tell everyone that you love the Lord. It is not about your bragging rights about loving the Lord. Many who do this are really "surface Christians." Where is the depth of their walk and fruit evident in their deeds to define they are truly believing? Let deep call onto deep. May you seek the deeper things of God.

Seeking and knowing the Lord is to know His Peace. It is to have His Peace in you. In the midst of your storms, His Peace will keep you steadfast and grounded. It will help you not waver to the left or right. His Peace will keep you from shipwrecking your faith. Even in the midst of ten thousand against you, His Peace will give you the strength to hold your ground. His Peace in you is your secret place of the Most High.

Psalm 91:1-9 Psalm 91 HE WHO [a]dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall remain stable and fixed under the shadow of the Almighty [Whose power no foe can withstand].2 I will say of the Lord, He is my Refuge and my Fortress, my God; on Him I lean and rely, and in Him I [confidently] trust!
3 For [then] He will deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the deadly pestilence.4 [Then] He will cover you with His pinions, and under His wings shall you trust and find refuge; His truth and His faithfulness are a shield and a buckler.5 You shall not be afraid of the terror of the night, nor of the arrow (the evil plots and slanders of the wicked) that flies by day,6 Nor of the pestilence that stalks in darkness, nor of the destruction and sudden death that surprise and lay waste at noonday.7 A thousand may fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand, but it shall not come near you.8 Only a spectator shall you be [yourself inaccessible in the secret place of the Most High] as you witness the reward of the wicked.9 Because you have made the Lord your refuge, and the Most High your dwelling place, 10 There shall no evil befall you, nor any plague or calamity come near your tent.

Be at peace, learn to be still and know He is GOD.

Psalm 46:10(AMP) Let be and be still, and know (recognize and understand) that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations! I will be exalted in the earth!

Isaiah 40:31(AMP) But those who wait for the Lord [who expect, look for, and hope in Him] shall change and renew their strength and power; they shall lift their wings and mount up [close to God] as eagles [mount up to the sun]; they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint or become tired.

It is the same Peace that can give you the strength to say such words as Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego said in the face of adversity. It is a Peace that will not make you fail.

Daniel 3:17-18 (AMP)If our God Whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, He will deliver us out of your hand, O king.18But if not, let it be known to you, O king, that we will not serve your gods or worship the golden image which you have set up!

Be still, it is the Lord who fights your battles. Much of our walk as a Christian is just to wait upon the Lord as we pray, read, and worship drawing closer and learning to Trust HIM. When we wait and we are still, He is exalted! He is your vindicator!

Fire of God!

Cast the spirit of Anger out from among yourselves

James 1:20 "Man's anger does not bring about the righteous life that God desires"

When we get angry, our flesh will get stired up and next we will react emotionally. This reaction will open a huge gap for the evil spirits to enter into our bodies. Those evil spirits will try to control our thoughts and mind. It will provoke even more rage. Unless we quickly repent of our temper and anger, those evil spirits which have entered into our bodies will become a stronghold. The spirit of anger will bring in other evil spirits such as the spirit of resentment, unforgiveness, bitterness, grudges and etc to cooperate their work and to achieve their goal which is to drag us to hell. Unless we quickly humble ourselves and repent of our actions and ask God to help us to overcome anger with other people, our life will become miserable. Our angry actions will also stumble others as we tend to vent out our anger. It is human nature to seek other people to vent on or talk out why he/she is angry. This is an act of self justification. By making others agree with him/her, she will feel justified. God does not want us to simply react emotionally to others' reactions.

Proverbs 22:24-25 "Don't befriend angry people or associate with hot tempered people, or you will learn to be like them and endanger your soul.

Anger is very contagious. A spirit of anger and its friends will jump from people to people and will provoke the anger along with other spirits. We can easily witness a whole family suffer from anger issue. It is becasue a spirit of anger operates within the whole family member seizing their thoughts and mind. We can also witness married couple having anger issues. Sometimes we would read from a newspaper an article of a certain couple started a little argument but it led to killing each other. This anger problem passes down even to the next generation and beyond. Unless someone from this particular family becomes a true Christian following God to break and cast the spirit of anger back to hell, the spirit of anger will continue to faithfully perform its given mission. We can easily witness a certain group of people gather one minded and begin to bash on other people getting more angry as they react emotionally. This can lead to backbitting, criticizing and judging. This shows us that getting angry will lead more sin on top of more sin. 

proverbs 14:29 "A patient man has great understanding, but a quick-tempered man displays folly"
Proverbs 15:18 "A hot-tempered man stirs up dissension, but a patient man calms a quarrel "
Proverbs 20:30 "It is to a man's honor to avoid strife, but every fool is quick to quarrel "
Proverbs 29:22 "An angry man stirs up dissension, and a hot-tempered one commits many sins "

When a man gets angry at anything or anyone, he/she generally talks to other people about their issue to gather a crowd and stir them up. It is nothing but a mob mentality. This way, getting angry can be justified as a man think he is thus vindicating himself. Perhaps, a spirit of restless and impatience leads one to think they are vindicating themselves. Instead of trying to calm down the situation, a person may attempt to stir even more because this way, the person thinks he can pay or get back for being insulted thinking he/she was not righly treated. It is a form of retaliation. But one man's anger may and will lead other people to sin. Many angry christians justify their anger by saying, it was a righteous anger. But by who's standard? We must know that most of time, if not all, our anger is not a righteous anger.

Bear the  fruit of gentlness and self control. Give no room to the spirit of anger. Swallow your anger. If anyone makes you angry, ask God to help you overcome the anger for it is not other people's problem but rather, it is your problem. Specially, if we are a Christian, we can't say, "He started first" or "He made me angry". There is no excuse for it for it is a sin that needs to be repented and needs to be addressed. If we ever get angry, this shows that our flesh is not fully crucified yet. Therefore, this showed that this part of our self must be put to death. We must let God fully reign in us. You must learn to bless those who made you angry. Bless them and love them for it is not your place to pay back or retaliate. If anyone falsely accuse you, pray and ask God to have mercy on them for they may not know what they are doing. We must posses the heart of Jesus for He prayed for those who had falsely accused and cruicified Him. We must also know that when we bless those who hates and curse us, we will receive blessings. When we bless those who comes against us, God will bless us back. There is no justification for getting angry and retaliating for it is not of the fruit of the Holy Spirit.

Proverbs 26:2 (AMP) Like the sparrow in her wandering, like the swallow in her flying, so the causeless curse does not alight.

When someone makes a false accusation against me, I bless them in the name of Jesus. I do not try to vindicate myself for God knows my heart and situation. God is the only one who is able to vindicate me and the situation, if we try to vindicate ourselves, we will get into trouble and will evantually sin against God and we may stumble others and make them sin as well. Do not overjoyed for other's judgment for it may fall upon us. Alway love and bless.

Proverbs 20:22 "Do not say, "I'll pay you back for this wrong!" Wait for the LORD, and he will deliver you .
Proverbs 29:11 "A fool gives full vent to his anger, but a wise man keeps himself under control
Matthew 5:21-24 "But I tell you that anyone who is angry with his brother will be subject to judgment ...
Romans 12:2 "Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good"

It is better for us not to say that we are a Christian if we are going to constantly get angry with others for their actions. For it does not properly resemble Jesus and it will not bring Him Glory. If you have been called into the office of leadership, this person must resemble God proplerly with self control and love instead of stirring up a group with rage, anger or emotion. God deals with leaders even more severly than lay believers. Every action will be carefully watched by God for leaders can take whole congregation to hell. Let us always carefully observe our actions. If any of our action contradicts the nine fruit of the Holy Spirit, let us quickly repent and ask God to help us to achieve bear nine fruit of Holy Spirit.

1 Corinthians 13:4-5 "Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs"

Colossians 3:8 "But now you must rid yourselves of all such things as these: anger, rage, malice, slander, and filthy language from your lips"

2 Timothy 2:24 "And the Lord's servant must not quarrel; instead, he must be kind to everyone, able to teach, not resentful"

Glory to God!
Let Fire of God consume us!!

Compromise will lead to Rejection by the Lord by Yoojin Kim

Hosea 4:6-7 6My people are destroyed for lack of knowledgebecause you have rejectedknowledge, reject you from being a priest to me. And since you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children.7 The more they increased, the more they sinned against me; I will change their glory into shame.

1 Peter 2:9 But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.

In present time, we represent Him as a royal priesthood. Back in the Old Testament, what were the consequences of a priest sinning? What would have happened to a priest if he preached the compromised law of God? What would have happened if he preached a message that people were able to choose their own Sabbath day? What if the priest said that God was not a cruel God but He was a God of love and therefore He would understand little bit of sin and little bit of compromise? Such priests would be struck dead by the Lord. God would replace them with obedient priests. If one does not properly and seriously handle their job accordingly, they will be replaced. It is not that God does not have anyone to utilize, God has other people who are willing and who will not compromise His commands.

Then why is it so different today? Just because Jesus came and died on the cross, does this give us a license to compromise His commandments and reject His Word? Did the death of Jesus changed God’s nature? Is our God now the God who allows a “little” sin and a “little” compromise? No! Absolutely not! If you read most of books in the Old Testament, you will see what our God is capable of allowing and judging. He is so holy and just. He had to judge His own people. He in fact killed so many of His people for His people did not fear Him enough that they had sinned and rebelled against Him. His judgments at the end actually turned out to be blessing for His people because they were crying out to God as they were repenting.

How has America become a nation of whores? She has forsaken God. She cheats with the world. She is in love with the worldly things (idols)! She has taken out the 10 commandants from the public schools! She has compromised the 4th commandment and now most of the Christians are defiling His Holy day, Sunday, the Lord’s Day!! The Supreme Court has taken out the 10 commandments of God! Her actions are an expression of rejection! We have brought curses upon our land. We have no one to blame except us! We are being destroyed and will be completely destroyed very soon if America does not repent. Now, our children are facing God’s judgment. Whose fault is it that our children must suffer?

1Samuel 1-3 Samuel also said to Saul, “The LORD sent me to anoint you king over His people, over Israel. Now therefore, heed the voice of the words of the LORD. Thus says the LORD of hosts: ‘I will punish Amalek for what he did to Israel, how he ambushed him on the way when he came up from Egypt. Now go and attack Amalek, and utterly destroy all that they have, and do not spare them. Butkill both man and woman, infant and nursing child, ox and sheep, camel and donkey.’”

Look very carefully, the Lord commanded kill ALL and utterly destroy. Let us look at next verse.

1 Samuel 9-11 Saul and the people spared Agag and the best of the sheep, oxen, fatlings, lambs, and all that was good, and would not utterly destroy them; but all that was undesirable or worthless they destroyed utterly. Then the word of the Lord came to Samuel, saying, I regret making Saul king, for he has turned back from following Me and has not performed My commands.

Here, King Saul spared the Amalek king and other worthy looking animals. He did not utterly destroy them but he picked and chose what to kill and what not too. Today, Christians pick and choose according to their own judgment, even God’s commandments.

1 Samuel 13,15 Blessed are you of the Lord. I have performed what the Lord ordered. Saul said, They have brought them from the Amalekites; for the people spared the best of the sheep and oxen to sacrifice to the Lord your God, but the rest we have utterly destroyed.

He had compromised and disobeyed God according to his judgment of circumstances and own wisdom. He is justifying his actions and on the surface his reason sound reasonable. Does this sound familiar? The 4th commandment, on the Lord ’s Day, some people work and  say, “I do good things. I spend money to advance God’s kingdom!” But who can say they are allowed to spend money if the money was used to advance kingdom? Did the Lord directed it or are they creating their own authority? Pretty soon, there will be many who will have their own “good excuse” to spend money.
Now, let us read king Saul’s excuse.

1 Samuel 19-21 Why then did you not obey the voice of the Lord, but swooped down upon the plunder and did evil in the Lord's sight? Saul said to Samuel, Yes, I have obeyed the voice of the Lord and have gone the way which the Lord sent me, and have brought Agag king of Amalek and have utterly destroyed the Amalekites. But the people took from the spoil sheep and oxen, the chief of the things to be utterly destroyed, to sacrifice to the Lord your God in Gilgal.

Any disobedience is considered evil in the eyes of the Lord. However, Saul thought he had obeyed.  Many Christians believe they are in obedience. But they have defined their own obedience. They have given God terms.

1 Samuel 15:23 For 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. 
Actions may look good on the surface but a little compromise will make God reject us. Without repentance, our final destiny will be hell. It sound very extreme but this is truth. Remember, God never changes. His nature is as same. Jesus came and died a horrible death.

We now have grace to repent. Let us observe His commandments without compromising.

Do not compromise or reject His truth under the banner of uniting for the sake of uniting or the sake of man’s love. Unite under the banner of His TRUTH! The time of separation is here.  Separation is occurring as judgment is in the horizon. Depending on where you have lined up, your final destiny may be made. It is all your choice brethren. Do not harden your heart, but humble yourselves.

Hebrews 3:8 (AMP)  Do not harden your hearts, as [happened] in the rebellion [of Israel] and their provocation and[a]embitterment [of Me] in the day of testing in the wilderness,

Glory to God!!

One of my favorite stories in the Bible is the journey of the Israelites towards the Promised Land. As Christians, we can relate our own experiences to the experiences of the Israelites through their journey in the wilderness. The Israelites wandered in the desert for forty years. It was in the wilderness where the people of GOD were put to test in order to learn how to fully trust GOD. Their journey towards the Promised Land could only take few days or months but because of their stubbornness, it took them forty years. It took forty years for them to learn what God wants them to learn.

Like the Israelites, we as children of GOD will also be in the wilderness. Not in the “desert” but in our own personal tribulations and trials in which we die to self and live for Christ. Just as GOD intended the Israelites to be in the wilderness, He also intends us to be in our wilderness. It is in the wilderness that the Israelites have learned who GOD is, and the importance of obeying Him. Our early year of Christian walk is like wandering in the wilderness. It is in the wilderness where we will be refined, tried and tested. It is in the wilderness where we die to self and grow to maturity.

Some people think that when the day of their spiritual birth happens (being born again), they are now free and ready to go to heaven. But this is not the end but only the beginning of their walk with GOD. When the Israelites delivered from the slavery of Egypt, they thought that God will immediately lead them to the Promised Land. They never thought that they will suffer hardships in the wilderness before they reach their land. Because of this, they start blaming and doubting GOD.

There are some people that when GOD put them in trials (wilderness) they will be angry and they will complain just as the Israelites did when they suffered in the wilderness. Many want to go back and be slave of Satan because it is where they feel more comfortable. The Israelites too became angry and they wanted to go back to Egypt to be slaves. They want to go back because in Egypt, they are comfortable, they are being fed and they never lack food. While in the wilderness, they were hungry, thirsty, and they lived in tents. Who does not want a comfortable life? Who does not want a problem-free life? But most often, it is in the worst days of our lives that we grow more into maturity and we learn to fully trust GOD.

While some of the Israelites want to go back, some of them want to escape. They are looking for an easy way out. They are looking for shortcuts. They want to be immediately transported to the Promised Land. They don’t want to suffer trials in the wilderness which God intended for them to grow. We should not pray to God for an escape to all our tribulations but we must pray to Him to give us strength to overcome.

A prudent man sees danger and takes refuge, but the simple keeps going and suffer for it.” Proverbs 22:3

We hate being in the wilderness. We don’t want to experience difficult times. We don’t want to be physically weak. We don’t want to be emotionally drained. We don’t want to be spiritually stretched. But these are the times that God is refining us, changing us, removing our selfishness and teaching us to depend on Him.

When Daddy God wants us to learn a lesson, He will give us a test. He will allow us to be in the situations that He knows we are weak. He will pinpoint our weak areas by allowing us to undergo sets of trials. This is not to discourage us but in order for us to grow more. If we failed the test, He will again make a way for us to retake that particular test all over again until we pass it. We must not feel tired and discourage whenever we failed because GOD is not looking on the number of our failures but on how we persevere until the end.

Spiritual maturity is the same with our physical growth. It takes time to develop. It is the result of time and experiences in which we are growing more under the guidance of GOD. As we walk in the wilderness, Daddy God will be observing us while He is giving us some tests. He will be silent at times and will observe if we will obey Him or we will turn back to our old sinful habits.

Jesus was also led to the wilderness of testing. Not forty years but for forty days He experienced hunger and suffering and then at the end of that time faced an emotional and spiritual battle with Satan himself. It was such a hard time for Jesus but He endured and overcome this test because He knows that this was part of God’s plan.

Jesus learned obedience in the wilderness. He learned to put God above His physical desires (bread), above personal pride, above earthly things or possessions. He learned to put God above Himself. He learned to trust God. This could only be learned in the wilderness.

We often think, “If God loves me, then He will protect me from all trials and difficulties.” But this must not be our thinking, it must be “Because God loves me then He will allow me to face trials and difficulties in order for me to grow.”

Unholiness is contagious

Be careful brethren of what you watch, look, say, think, and do. For unholiness and corruption are contagious. It is easier to destroy than build. It is easier to fall than climb. It is easier to do nothing than to do something. It is easier to rebel than to obey. It is easier to do the easy thing than to do the difficult thing. It is easier to curse than bless. It is easier because this is the norm for the world.

It is easier to accuse than remain silent. It is easier to jump on a band wagon and be part of the mob than the lone guy who will stand for Truth.

In this world because of SIN, it is normal and easier to fall than climb.

BUT HOLINESS SHOULD BE THE NORM! Grace gave us the opportunity and ability to walk in HOLINESS. Grace gave us the ability to get things right with God. It gave us time for sanctification.

Holiness is a choice we must make daily. It is not contagious as unholiness. Unholiness is contagious because it is the norm of this world. Holiness must be chosen through the Grace given to you.

May you make the choices to Glorify God making it home. God bless brethren.

Haggai 2:12-13 (AMP)If one carries in the skirt of his garment flesh that is holy [because it has been offered in sacrifice to God], and with his skirt or the flaps of his garment he touches bread, or pottage, or wine, or oil, or any kind of food, does what he touches become holy [dedicated to God's service exclusively]? And the priests answered, No! [Holiness is not infectious.]

13Then said Haggai, If one who is [ceremonially] unclean because he has come in contact with a dead body should touch any of these articles of food, shall it be [ceremonially] unclean? And the priests answered, It shall be unclean. [Unholiness is infectious.]

1 Corinthians 15:33(AMP) Do not be so deceived and misled! Evil companionships (communion, associations) corrupt and deprave good manners and morals and character.

The Harvest by Rick Joyner

Chapter 1 - The Harvest

"Jesus said, "The harvest is at the end of the age" (see Matthews 13:39). Between now and the end of the age, more people will come to know Jesus than have previously known Him from Pentcost until this time. Before the end, every village in every nation will have had the gospel preached to them. Every person living will hear His name. The knowledge of the Lord will cover the earth as the waters cover the sea. Many whole cities, and some entire nations, will be converted to Him. The magnitude of what is coming cannot be measured by anything that has happened before. Even the cosmos itself will be electrified by its energy. More than a tithe of all the people who have ever lived, more than one billion souls, will call upon His name in true commitment resulting in true conversion before the end of the age.

This harvest will exceed every previous outpouring of the Spirit in one profound way - Jesus will be preached as Lord and not just Savoir. During this harvest, the gospel will change from "Come and be saved," to "Bow the knee, He is King!" This is the seventh and last trumpet or message to be preached. This message will not come in word only, but in power and unprecedented demonstrations of the Spirit.

There is another aspect to the harvest that is the end of the age - the reaping of evil. A harvest is the reaping of everything that has been sown, both good and evil. The evil that was sown in man will also come to fruition during this time. While the "wheat" is being gathered, the "tares" will also be gathered into bundles or unified.  However, the gathering of the tares is actually meant to aid the gathering of the wheat.

The separation and distinction between the two seeds will become increasingly visible in the days to come. The "man of sin" or the personification of the "man of sin" will also be fully revealed and understood during the harvest. This is not to be feared; He who is in us is much greater than he who is in the world, and the least of those in the Kingdom of God has more power than all the antichrists. Nevertheless, this evil must be understood or many will be unnecessarily captured by it."

by Rick Joyner "The Harvest"

Revelation 14:15
And another angel came out of the temple sanctuary, calling with a mighty voice to Him Who was sitting upon the cloud, Put in Your scythe and reap, for the hour has arrived to gather the harvest, for the earth's crop is fully ripened

Matthew 13:30
Let them grow together until the harvest; and at harvest time I will say to the reapers, Gather the darnel first and bind it in bundles to be burned, but gather the wheat into my granary.

Matthew 13:39 And the enemy who sowed it is the devil. The harvest is the close and consummation of the age, and the reapers are angels.

Joel 3:13
Put in the sickle, for the [vintage] harvest is ripe; come, get down and tread the grapes, for the winepress is full; the vats overflow, for the wickedness [of the peoples] is great.

Pray for directions!

There have been Earthquakes everywhere on a daily basis. They are the earth's birth pangs before the climax of the great destruction coming. Many are still oblivious. I hope many are on your knees praying for direction. Pray for direction. Some need to store up. Some will be on the move. The Great Famine is coming. Pray for your family & friends. Pray for yourselves!!

When the US dollar collapses, the USA will experience a hyperinflation. All commodity prices world wide will sky rocket. This is basic economics 101. A major catastrophe in the US will cause loss of confidence in the markets. Prices will skyrocket. Riots will break out.

It would be wise brethren, to get on your knees and seek direction. There is not much time left. Ask the Lord if you need to store up or prepare to be on the move. Either way, you will need provisions to be on the move as well.

A time is coming where all will be tested! The Day of the Lord is approaching to test your faiths and beliefs. A time is coming where many of you who have never really learned to Trust God will have to learn how to Trust God.

Just as in the days of Pharaoh, even though God's people trusted God on the surface, they become more dependent on the Babylonian system of Egypt. When they entered the wilderness and after their provisions had depleted, they had to learn how to Trust God.

The time is coming, will you TRULY Learn to Trust God or will you like so many in history grumble and complain. How will your faith stand in times of distress and darkness. Will you shine His Light for Him or will you fizzle out and be part of the Great falling away? I am not saying the Great Tribulation is here or about to start.

Matthew 24:10 (AMP) And then many will be offended and repelled and will [a]begin to distrust and desert [Him Whom they ought to trust and obey] and will stumble and fall away and betray one another and pursue one another with hatred. 11And many false prophets will rise up and deceive and lead many into error.
12And the love of [b]the great body of people will grow cold because of the multiplied lawlessness and iniquity,

13But he who endures to the end will be saved.

Judgment is coming!! The Great Destruction is coming! Food shortage is coming! Pray for mercy! Pray for yourselves!! Please, there is not much time left. Pray for direction!!!!

Matthew 24:6 (AMP) And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars; see that you are not frightened or troubled, for this must take place, BUT THE END IS NOT YET.

Zechariah 13:7-9 (AMP)Awake, O sword, against My shepherd and against the man who is My associate, says the Lord of hosts; smite the shepherd and the sheep [of the flock] shall be scattered, and I will turn back My hand and stretch it out again upon the little ones [of the flock].8And in all the land, says the Lord, two-thirds shall be cut off and perish, but one-third shall be left alive.9And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined and will test them as gold is tested. They will call on My name, and I will hear and answer them. I will say, It is My people; and they will say, The Lord is my God.

Luke 18:8 (AMP)I tell you, He will defend and protect and avenge them speedily. However, when the Son of Man comes, will He find [[a]persistence in] faith on the earth?

Truth stood alone

People generally think there is power and safety in numbers. This is true in the animal kingdom but not in God's. The Lord does not operate under majority rule. He is a monarchy. Be wise of how rebellion can start with a person. Man is very predictable. Even with Moses, Korah's clan lobbied all 250 princes of the congregation leaders. They came in force with numbers.

‎(Numbers chapter 16) They came to Moses with the backing of the people basically thinking how could they be wrong when all of them are in agreement except Moses. Majority does not rule in God's Kingdom. It is God's way or the Highway! 

People tend to feel safe in numbers even if they are wrong. People tend to feel secured. No one likes to be the lone guy. But biblical history has shown, the true servants of God walked alone just as John the Baptist, Ezekiel, Jeremiah, and so forth and yes, even Jesus most of time. Elijah thought he was the only one left who was not serving Baal. Jesus had to walk up to Calvary and suffered by Himself. He took His own cross just as you are to take your own crosses and follow Him. 

When rebellion starts in a man's heart, he/she will attempt to rally a crowd. This is classic and predictable. For example, if a man likes to drink, then they will try to rally others to give that blessing and justify to them it is not a sin. In reality, the person is attempting to find other drinking partners so they all feel secured because others are doing it. 

If one is in Truth, let the Lord vindicate you. For Truth does not need to defend itself nor seek safety in number. Jesus is Truth. He was the prime example. He did not defend Himself. He did not call His angels to protect Him. He did not overthrow the Roman Empire. He did what most did not expect. He decided to die a innocent man so the guilty ones can still obtain life. Truth kept silent. Truth stood alone. Truth carried His cross and denied Himself.

Let us follow Truth's example. Let us follow the Lord to our Calvary carrying our own crosses and denying ourselves. If we say we believe, then let us do in action as well. Learn of His ways so when God does something, you will know it is HIM.

John 14:6 (AMP) Jesus said to him, I am the Way and the Truth and the Life; no one comes to the Father except by (through) Me.

Two Prophets 1 Kings Chapter 13 -Disobedient/Lying

In 1 Kings Chapter 13, two prophets are described. The first prophet scripture calls him "man of God". He came to Bethel by the Word of the Lord. While Jeroboam stood next to the altar to burn incense, the man of God prophecy. When Jeroboam did not like what he was hearing, he thrust at the man of God and his arms dried up. To validate furthermore that the man of God was from God, the altar spit and the ashes fell out. Scripture then says Jeroboam asked the man of God to entreat for him the favor of the Lord so his arms would be back to normal. The man of God entreated the Lord and Jeroboam's arms were restored.

Impressed, Jeroboam asked the man of God to stay with him and that he would reward him. The man of God replied that he could not eat, drink or go back the way he came. The man of God even said if Jeroboam was to give half his house, he would not comply.

Yet, on his way out, the man of God was intercepted by a old town prophet. The old town prophet (lying prophet) sought the man of God to invite him to eat with him. The man of God, of course, replied that he was ordered by the Lord not to eat, drink, or return by the same way. However, the old town prophet or lying prophet lied to the man of God. He said an angel of the Lord spoke and said he was able to eat and drink water in his house. The man of God complied and went to the lying prophet's home.

But during their meal, scripture says the Word of the Lord came to the lying prophet. Basically, the message was that the man of God who was now in disobedience was a dead man.

There are several facets we can observe in this rich chapter. Let us first look at the old town prophet. Why would the lying prophet attempt to stumble the man of God? The man of God told the old town prophet that he was on orders by the Lord not to eat, drink, or go the same way back. Yet, the old town prophet LIED which costed the other prophet's life and even his soul. The old town prophet heard about what had happened at the altar and he rushed with his sons to find the man of God.

It is but the human nature of "misery likes company." When people whether they are excelling for the Lord or even in this world, the human nature is to bring them down. Even in schools, how many times do other students give the other student a high five for getting an "A." No, they give more high fives for each receiving failing grades.

The bread and water are not only basic necessities for the human body but here it represents the comforts of the flesh. It represents the test whether to obey God or satisfy the needs of the flesh. The old town prophet lured the man of God with the comforts of the world. The bread and water was to satisfy his flesh.

We must also learn here God will still speak through a lying prophet.  But why didn't God send the old town prophet to Jeroboam instead one from Judah? Our callings and gifts are irrevocable. We must always learn to discern at each event, time, and/or with people. One moment, even a prophet can be lying and the next moment, God could be speaking through him/her just as described in this chapter. Both spirit and flesh can work together when a person speaks or acts. One moment,  a person may be spiritual speaking for God and the next they may be adding or taking away to the prophecy because of their flesh out of emotions or passion. We must learn to discern each moment for it can be a sight of hand trick by the enemy through the flesh.

The man of God was slain on the road by a lion. The lion did not eat him but stood next to him. If the people who lived in that time did not understand what had just happened, they might have carelessly concludes that it was dangerous walking in the desert or wilderness. They may conclude that was an random act and dangers of life. Today, there are no lions. If God wanted to take out a disobedient servant, what methods would He use today in modern times? We must be wise to know such things still do occur.

Another question we must ask is why did God not immediately punish the lying prophet. The disobedient prophet was quickly dealt with and most severely. Perhaps, directly disobeying God's command has a greater degree of severity. The man of God was given DIRECT orders not to eat, drink, or go back the same way. He knew better but he gave into his flesh. He could have been tired from his journey. He could have been tired from being taxed by other people. This lesson teaches us that even though we are tired and taxed by people or our circumstances, we must OBEY. It is LIFE or Death. We must be careful for it can be God's own people who stumble one another. The narrow road we are travelling is not an easy one. In fact, it is very dangerous. Only your obedience in HIM will keep you safe. Please empty yourselves and put down that flesh that attempts to add or take away God's Word. Please ask the Holy Spirit to help all of us in this area. I pray we all grow in His Grace moving from Glory to Glory and make it home.

1 Kings 13:1-29  AND BEHOLD, there came a man of God out of Judah by the word of the Lord to Bethel. Jeroboam stood by the altar to burn incense. 2The man cried against the altar by the word of the Lord, O altar, altar, thus says the Lord: Behold, a son shall be born to the house of David, Josiah by name; and on you shall he offer the priests of the high places who burn incense on you, and men's bones shall be burned on you.
 3And he gave a sign the same day, saying, This is the sign which the Lord has spoken: Behold, the altar shall be split and the ashes that are upon it shall be poured out. [Fulfilled in II Kings 23:15, 16.] 4When King Jeroboam heard the words the man of God cried against the altar in Bethel, he thrust out his hand, saying, Lay hold on him! And his hand which he put forth against him dried up, so that he could not draw it to him again.
5The altar also was split and the ashes poured out from the altar according to the sign which the man of God had given by the word of the Lord.6And the king said to the man of God, Entreat now the favor of the Lord your God and pray for me, that my hand may be restored to me. And the man of God entreated the Lord, and the king's hand was restored and became as it was before.7And the king said to the man of God, Come home with me and refresh yourself, and I will give you a reward.8And the man of God said to the king, If you give me half your house, I will not go in with you, and I will not eat bread or drink water in this place. 9For I was commanded by the word of the Lord, You shall eat no bread or drink water or return by the way you came.10So he went another way and did not return by the way that he came to Bethel.11Now there dwelt an old prophet in Bethel; and his sons came and told him all that the man of God had done that day in Bethel; the words which he had spoken to the king they told also to their father.12Their father asked them, Which way did he go? For his sons had seen which way the man of God who came from Judah had gone.13He said to his sons, Saddle the donkey for me. So they saddled the donkey and he rode on it 14And went after the man of God. And he found him sitting under an oak, and he said to him, Are you the man of God who came from Judah? And he said, I am.15Then he said to him, Come home with me and eat bread.16He said, I may not return with you or go in with you, neither will I eat bread or drink water with you in this place.17For I was told by the word of the Lord, You shall not eat bread or drink water there or return by the way that you came.18He answered, I am a prophet also, as you are. And an angel spoke to me by the word of the Lord, saying, Bring him back with you to your house, that he may eat bread and drink water. But he lied to him.19So the man from Judah went back with him and ate and drank water in his house.20And as they sat at the table, the word of the Lord came to the prophet who brought him back. 21And he cried to the man of God who came from Judah, Thus says the Lord: Because you have disobeyed the word of the Lord and have not kept the command which the Lord your God commanded you,22But have come back and have eaten bread and drunk water in the place of which the Lord said to you, Eat no bread and drink no water--your corpse shall not come to the tomb of your fathers.23And after the prophet of the house had eaten bread and drunk, he saddled the donkey for the man he had brought back.24And when he had gone, a lion met him by the road and slew him, and his corpse was cast in the way, and the donkey stood by it; the lion also stood by the corpse.25And behold, men passed by and saw the corpse thrown in the road, and the lion standing by the corpse, and they came and told it in the city where the old prophet dwelt.26When the prophet who brought him back from the way heard of it, he said, It is the man of God who was disobedient to the word of the Lord; therefore the Lord has given him to the lion, which has torn him and slain him, according to the word of the Lord which He spoke to him.27And he said to his sons, Saddle the donkey for me. And they saddled it. 28And he went and found the corpse thrown in the road, and the donkey and the lion stood by the body; the lion had not eaten the corpse or torn the donkey.29The prophet took up the corpse of the man of God and laid it upon the donkey and brought it back, and the old prophet came into the city to mourn and to bury him.

How are testimonies birthed?

IF one runs from their pain or tribulation, how is a testimony to be birthed? Testimonies are birthed through perseverance and endurance. If we do not wait long enough enduring, how is the Lord to finish His work in us if we keep running away each time our flesh screams. Let your flesh scream!! Let it die! Finish the process of your flesh being crucified.

Galatians 2:20 (AMP) I have been crucified with Christ [in Him I have shared His crucifixion]; it is no longer I who live, but Christ (the Messiah) lives in me; and the life I now live in the body I live by faith in (by adherence to and reliance on and complete trust in) the Son of God, Who loved me and gave Himself up for me.

You must finish the process of sanctification!! It is a mandatory requirement. You must die daily to yourself and this can only occur by staying the Fire which is purging you. Let HIM INCREASE and YOU DECREASE!!

You must NO LONGER EXIST. When someone sees you, they must see Jesus Christ in you. They must not see the old you.

Your testimonies are you also your spiritual weapons against the enemy. Persevere and endure in all things brethren. Yes, He is coming!! Hold fast! Do not give an inch back to the enemy! Hold you ground! Advance and possess until the Lord's return.

Revelation 6:9 When the Lamb broke open the fifth seal, I saw at the foot of the altar the souls of those whose lives had been sacrificed for [adhering to] the Word of God and for the testimony they had borne.

Revelation 12:11 And they have overcome (conquered) him by means of the blood of the Lamb and by the utterance of their testimony, for they did not love and cling to life even when faced with death [holding their lives cheap till they had to die for their witnessing].

Revelation 12:17 So then the dragon was furious (enraged) at the woman, and he went away to wage war on the remainder of her descendants--[on those] who obey God's commandments and who have the testimony of Jesus Christ [and adhere to it and bear witness to Him].

Life can seem like a maze

When life throws its difficult taxing circumstances at us, it is like being in a maze. Out of all the paths, there is only ONE path that will get you to freedom. But there is a way out but it is the path that is the least widest. It is the path that is the least easiest. However, it is possible to make it through. It is a path that requires endurance, perseverance, patient, love, and overcoming!!

It is a path that can be achieved. It is the path the Lord took for us already! He has overcome the world. But if we are to follow HIM, we must follow the same type of path. He suffered for us and if we are to share the riches with HIM, we are to share in His suffering.

Please make the choice to take the path that is the least widest and with that choice of obedience, HE will give you the Strength to finish what He has started in you.

Romans 8:17(AMP) And if we are [His] children, then we are [His] heirs also: heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ [sharing His inheritance with Him]; only we must share His suffering if we are to share His glory.

2 Corinthians 1:5 (AMP) For just as Christ's [[a]own] sufferings fall to our lot [b][as they overflow upon His disciples, and we share and experience them] abundantly, so through Christ comfort (consolation and encouragement) is also [shared and experienced] abundantly by us.

I pray that you will all make it through your trials, tests, and tribulations. We love you all very much. I speak the Power to Overcome in your lives! I speak the Power to finish your season Glorifying God!

James 1:2-5 2Consider 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.5If any of you is deficient in wisdom, let him ask of [b]the giving God [Who gives] to everyone liberally and ungrudgingly, without reproaching or faultfinding, and it will be given him.
