To Christmas or not to Christmas?

    About this time of year, there are many misinformed Christians who participate in spreading out bad information regarding Christmas. Humans are visual creatures. We tend to more believe when something is put on video than on text. Even in the real world of news, just because it is from the mainstream media does not always mean it is truth. Many Christians utilize YouTube and the internet and they give it much weight and validity not even knowing the author or their fruit. However, we must first ask a basic question. Who is the author? The media venue can be manipulated to spin toward a bias opinion. Although, I am not against such mediums (internet/media) and I do utilize it myself, we must be more careful on who we choose to listen and believe as they present information. Do they have history? Do they have fruit? You must take it all in prayer and ask they Holy Spirit.

Christmas or Not to Christmas? The Feast of Dedication or Hanukkah during the season of Christmas is a Jewish holiday. It is also known as the Festival of Lights. Hanukkah is a Jewish holiday celebrated for eight days and nights. It starts on the 25th of the Jewish month of Kislev, which coincides with late November-late December on the secular calendar. Jesus is considered the "Light of the World (Festival of Lights). Coincidence? Jewish Tradition states that the birth of the world is on the month of Elu 25th."

John 8:12 (AMP) Once more Jesus addressed the crowd. He said, I am the Light of the world. He who follows Me will not be walking in the dark, but will have the Light which is Life.

Rosh Hashanah recalls the creation of the world, as we see from the prayer, "Today the world was born." According to Sages, however, the world was created on the 25th of Elul, so that Rosh HaShanah actually marks the sixth day of creation, the day on which G-d created man." If we take the words of Genesis 1:1 "In the beginning" in Hebrew and rearrange them, you get phrase "aleph b'Tishri" or "On the First of Tishri". Tishri 1st is the hebrew month after Elul.

"Rosh Hashanah is the Jewish New Year. Rosh HaShanah literally means “Head of the Year” in Hebrew. It falls in the month of Tishrei, which is the seventh month on the Hebrew calendar." Poplular Judism considers Rosh Hashanah as the date for the creation of the world. But Elul is 6 days before Rosh Hashanah. Jewish tradition believes man was created on Rosh Hashanah and the universe 6 days before. Jewish numerology studies called gematria points the hebrew words for "Let there be" to equal 25 and therefore Elul is the date for the original work of creation. My point is Elul 25th. Coincidence?

There has been some argument in which some Christians believe Jesus Christ was really born during the Feast of Tabernacles or around October/September and therefore December cannot be the true month. Pastor Perry Stone did research on traditional Jewish counting of birth years. Unlike western culture where we count birth year 1 at birth, the traditional Jews counted birth at conception.  If you take 9 months back from the Feast of Tabernacles, we get December time zone. Perhaps, the Holy Spirit conceived Jesus in December and He was then born during the Feast of Tabernacles or Booth.

Last year, I was reading a book called "A Prophetic Calender, The Feasts of Israel" by Jill Shannon. The author had questioned Christmas and the Lord answered her this way. She had mentioned reading "Heaven is So Real" by Choo Thomas of Choo's testimony in which the Lord, Jesus, appeared in an elegant robe on Christmas Eve. Jill Shannon, herself, had for years believed Jesus was not born on Christmas 25th but during the time of Tabernacles.

Jill Shannon wrote to Choo Thomas in regards to her dilemma. But as she waited, she had prayed to the Lord and asked if she had been teaching it falsely? She said she felt the Lord answer her in her spirit with the following.
"The Roman calender is the only one available to many nations, including your own culture. I chose to be born in the midst of the Roman Empire, and its influence and calendar are still with us. It is important for My people to have historical dates to link with the critical events in My ministry on earth: My Birth, My Crucifixion, and My Resurrection. Since these dates are the only ones they know, I honor these days with My People if they are honoring ME in their hearts. I love them and want to be in fellowship with them as they celebrate ME."

We may not be able to determine the exact date but is the date really that important or is the event more important? Yes, I agree, Christmas is NOT a time of santa claus, reindeers, snowman nor honoring just a holiday. Christians need to discern and separate themselves from the world of santa claus and its secular influences and get back to the pure essence of God. Christmas is a time when our Savior was born. Let us celebrate and honor HIM.

By the way, Jeremiah 10 does not talk about a Christmas tree. People have taken this text out of context as with many other scripture verses. You do not need the hands of a craftsman to carve out a tree. You do need the hands of a craftsman  to carve out an idol. 

God does not counterfeit or copy anyone or anything. It is the other way around. The devil will come to defile and overlap his poison onto Truth. Trees are not a symbol of paganism. In the bible, trees are used to describe and symbolize different things. We are even symbolized as trees to either bear good fruit or bad fruit. In the Garden of Eden, there were many trees including the TREE of Life!

Genesis 21:33 (AMP) Abraham planted a tamarisk tree in Beersheba and called there on the name of the Lord, the Eternal God.

Abraham planted a tree in Beersheba and called there on the name of the Lord. Was Abraham worshiping the tree? No, obviously not!

Last year because some Christians were so adamant about Jeremiah 10 regarding the Christmas tree, my wife and I called up Pastor Kim, Yong Doo. For those who know him, he is the author of "Baptize by Blazing Fire." He said his church celebrates the Lord's birthday and they have a Christmas tree.

If we dig things up, you will find paganism roots in many things including our calender such with word for Sunday through Saturday. Many of our corporations have symbols of paganism. Our US Dollar bill has a paganism symbol of the Masonic symbol of the all seeing eye. This world is under the authority of Satan. He has the lease hold right if you will. We Christians must discern and separate certain things. We are not of this world but in it. We will have to deal with some things of the world. Otherwise, you can go live in the mountains and not use money or anything the world has.

We have TV but we have the choice not to watch licentious, violent, or demonic shows. We have alcohol and drugs in this world but we have the choice not to participate in it. The secular world is going to attempt to commercialize and defile Christianity. It is our choice whether we participate such added things of the world or stay pure and holy celebrating the core essence of Christmas which is the birth of our Lord and Savior. Let us be a people separated from the world. A people walking in holiness and truth.

I will choose to celebrate Christmas and Resurrection Day to honor HIM. May HE be Glorified.

Psalm 98:2-4 (AMP)The Lord has made known His salvation; His righteousness has He openly shown in the sight of the nations.3He has [earnestly] remembered His mercy and loving-kindness, His truth and His faithfulness toward the house of Israel; all the ends of the earth have witnessed the salvation of our God.4Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth; break forth and sing for joy, yes, sing praises!

There is no middle ground!

They say when Jesus ascended up to heaven, five hundred people had saw Him. He told them to go PRAY and wait for the Holy Spirit to receive His Power and to be witnesses unto Jerusalem, Samaria, and then to the ends of the world.

There were 120 people in the upper room. Then on Pentecost, the Holy Spirit had come and baptized them with His Spirit and Fire!! They began to speak in other tongues and manifested the gifts of the Holy Spirit.

Acts 1:13-15 (AMP)And when they had entered [the city], they mounted [the stairs] to the upper room where they were [[a]indefinitely] staying—Peter and John and James and Andrew; Philip and Thomas, Bartholomew and Matthew; James son of Alphaeus and Simon the Zealot, and Judas [son] of James.14 All of these with their minds in full agreement devoted themselves steadfastly to prayer, [waiting together] with the women and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with His brothers.15 Now on one of those days Peter arose among the brethren, the whole number of whom gathered together was about a hundred and twenty.

Where did the other 380 people go who were reported to have seen Jesus ascend to heaven? Obviously, they had returned to their old lives and back to their couches and remote controls to watch TV.

But 120 people who had obeyed and persistently prayed was used by God to change the world. A spark was lit and set on fire in the upper room with 120 people when a "sound from heaven like the rushing of a violent tempest blast, and it filled the whole house in which they were sitting. And there appeared to them tongues resembling fire, which were separated and distributed and which settled on each one of them."  Then this Fire raged throughout the world. And as the return of our Lord draws near, the amber is being reignited. The Fire will once again spread throughout the world. It will purify and purge a chosen people. Many are called but few are chosen. Few choose to obey.

Which group are you in? Will you choose to be in the group of 120 who obeyed and prayed for the Power of the Holy Spirit or will you be in the group of 380 who had returned to their old lives?

We are to be the Living Army of God. But the war is spiritual and not carnal. The Living Army of God is an Army which fights and marches on our knees. We must be a Army that prays!! Revival will come to you when you decide to have a revolution in your hearts. Revival will come to you when you can say to the Father, "No longer my will but YOURS!!" Revival will come when you decide to put down all your personal plans, goals, and ambitions and lay it down at the foot of the cross with an obedient and fully surrendered heart.

There is no middle ground. It is all or none with HIM. He requires all of you. The middle will be spit out. We are in the last church age. It is the most lukewarm. Search your hearts!! There are too many idols in the hearts of God's people.

Revelation 3:14 And to the angel (messenger) of the assembly (church) in Laodicea write: These are the words of the Amen, the trusty and faithful and true Witness, the Origin and Beginning and Author of God’s creation:15 I know your [record of] works and what you are doing; you are neither cold nor hot. Would that you were cold or hot!16 So, because you are lukewarm and neither cold nor hot, I will spew you out of My mouth!17 For you say, I am rich; I have prospered and grown wealthy, and I am in need of nothing; and you do not realize and understand that you are wretched, pitiable, poor, blind, and naked.18 Therefore I counsel you to purchase from Me gold refined and tested by fire, that you may be [truly] wealthy, and white clothes to clothe you and to keep the shame of your nudity from being seen, and salve to put on your eyes, that you may see.

Praise report or pride report?

There are many Christians out there and especially in here who like to exalt themselves. And it is most sad because such behavior is exhibited by many of His servants who are called to oversee His people. Be careful brethren, many are stealing God's Glory. Many are looking for a pat on the back. It is but self glory. We must check our motives and our hearts. Are we giving a praise report or a pride report?

Have you been given authority to speak on a particular matter? Scripture says not all should try to be teachers for they will receive the greater condemnation. But why do so many attempt to teach and preach? It is because such wisdom is not from the Lord but demonic. Superficial wisdom is earthly, carnal, and demonic. It is out of envy, rivalry, self ambition, and self glory. Why are we looking for a pat on the back? Why are we looking for attention when the Glory belongs to the LORD!!

James 3:14-15 But if you have bitter jealousy (envy) and contention (rivalry, selfish ambition) in your hearts, do not pride yourselves on it and thus be in defiance of and false to the Truth.15 This [superficial] wisdom is not such as comes down from above, but is earthly, unspiritual (animal), even devilish (demoniacal).

God's Name is also JEALOUS!! HE is Jealous for you and I. Why would many of us expose some intimate things He shares with us when it is suppose to be only between Him and the recipient. Do you go around sharing what goes on in the bed room between you and your spouse to others in public?

Exodus 34:14 (AMP) For you shall worship no other god; for the Lord, Whose name is Jealous, is a jealous (impassioned) God,

Or are people trying to validate their authority by describing their gifts and the grace they receive? If God provides a person more food or resources than another person, does that justify authority? He provides rain to the righteous and wicked. Rain is provided by His Grace!

The mark of authority is the anointing on a person. The more the anointing, the higher the authority. Your gifts do not mark your authority. They are given to help build your faith and to help you draw closer to HIM. Do not pride in your gifts. Do not envy others for their gifts in the wrong way. Do not exalt one another in a prideful way.
Do NOT steal His Glory. Edify and lift one another in the Love of the Lord for His Glory.

What is true wisdom? What is the wisdom from above?

James 3:17-18
But the wisdom from above is first of all pure (undefiled); then it is peace-loving, courteous (considerate, gentle). [It is willing to] yield to reason, full of compassion and good fruits; it is wholehearted and straightforward, impartial and unfeigned (free from doubts, wavering, and insincerity).18 And the harvest of righteousness (of conformity to God’s will in thought and deed) is [the fruit of the seed] sown in peace by those who work for and make peace [in themselves and in others, that peace which means concord, agreement, and harmony between individuals, with undisturbedness, in a peaceful mind free from fears and agitating passions and moral conflicts].

Peace or division

Luke 12:49-52 (AMP)I have come to cast fire upon the earth, and how I wish that it were already kindled!50 I have a baptism with which to be baptized, and how greatly and sorely I am urged on (impelled, [a]constrained) until it is accomplished!51 Do you suppose that I have come to give peace upon earth? No, I say to you, but rather division;

Many Christians talk about unity and in need to be united. Many think division is from the enemy. The enemy can bring division. They enemy brings division to kill, steal, and destroy. God brings division to distinguish His chosen. The baptism of His Fire will bring division. God brings division to make people choose. Many of God's people today have chosen their own golden calves as they had before. Moses had demanded the people to choose a side.

Exodus 32:26 (AMP)Then Moses stood in the gate of the camp, and said, Whoever is on the Lord’s side, let him come to me. And all the Levites [the priestly tribe] gathered together to him.

When He baptizes a person with His Holy Spirit Fire within the churches or His people, such person will begin to stand out. As such person begins to stand out, there will be those who will plan to oppress the manifestation of the Holy Spirit from that person. They will begin to gather their spiritual stones and plot against that person. They will begin to spiritually oppress and kill such brethren thinking they are doing a service for God.

John 16:2 (AMP) They will put you out of (expel you from) the synagogues; but an hour is coming when whoever kills you will think and claim that he has offered service to God.

When a person is baptized by His Holy Spirit Fire, such person may exhibit physical manifestations such as their hands shaking. Their arms may begin to move. Their hands may feel like a magnet. They may feel the heat of the fire or electricity. Their bodies may even shake. This is happening as God's fire is purging His children like silver and gold. It is not an overnight process. It is a process of cleansing and purging that will take years. When a person is purged and cleansed, what is God expecting? What is a goldsmith expecting as one purges and purifies gold? After intense heat and fire, one expects pure gold and to see the reflection of oneself. God is desiring to see His reflection on the person as a goldsmith is expecting to see his reflection on the gold after it is purified. Being purged and cleansed will not be a easy process or road. It requires one to journey in the wilderness.

Zechariah 13:8-9 (AMP)And in all the land, says the Lord, two-thirds shall be cut off and perish, but one-third shall be left alive. 9 And 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.

Job 23:10 (AMP) But He knows the way that I take [He has concern for it, appreciates, and pays attention to it]. When He has tried me, I shall come forth as refined gold [pure and luminous].

The Fire of God will bring the new wine in a person. As he/she becomes new wine for these last days, such person may not fit into the traditional churches as they will be persecuted or oppressed as the new wine. Old sacks cannot hold new wine. There will be friction and resistance. New wine must be in new sacks. But sadly, there are not many new sacks to accommodate the new wine. As many wait, may you all persevere and endure as may the Fire of God in your lives become ever more intense and may you all grow much deeper with the Lord.

Do not resist the Holy Spirit! Do not quench HIM from the fear of men! Flow with HIM. Fall in Love with HIM. Draw deeper to HIM. Run to HIM. He Loves us with an everlasting Love!! May you choose to be on the Lord's side.

Pray earnestly and diligently for His people and for yourselves.

God bless

Religious and resisting the Holy Spirit

Stephen in the book of Acts was considered the first Christan martyr. Why did they stone and kill him? What did he do to be stoned? Who were the ones to stone him?

Whether it be 2000 years ago or today we need to ask a question why and what would incite people to kill their own brethren. Please do remember, the ones who had stoned Stephen were not unbelievers but they were Jews and they had the approval of the high priests. In today's term, they would be other Christians with the approval of their religious leaders from the most popular denominations or churches.

Let us look at most churches today. They are in most part the same yesterday. Today, when you go into most churches, what can we observe. We hear some hymns or worship songs. We hear some preaching of how God can do this or that. We hear some preaching that the Holy Spirit is around. We hear some prayers. The church may have some programs and events for their people. We hear that God can heal and set His people free. But yet in many churches, nothing much happens but a routine that is created by humanism.

But if someone was really filled with the Holy Spirit and stood out with God's grace, power, working wonders and signs among the people, well then that person would be rocking the boat so to speak from the old routine of church.

Acts 6:8 Now Stephen, full of grace (divine blessing and favor) and power (strength and ability) worked great wonders and signs (miracles) among the people.

If someone was manifesting the Holy Spirit, then why would the other brethren want to stop or kill him/her? Why would people want to kill or spiritually kill anyone who was working great wonders and signs? It can be for many reasons. It can be out of fear, jealousy, or complacency. People do not want to change from their wrong. They rather still force themselves into what they believe is truth to them.

Where are you? Jesus said if you were to truly follow HIM, you will be persecuted. Which side are you on? Are you one who is filled manifesting the Holy Spirit or are you one who is RESISTING the Holy Spirit? Are you one who is silent absorbing the spiritual stones thrown at you or are you the one calling certain ministries the work of the devil?

Do you know the Holy Spirit? Do you know the Person of the Holy Spirit? He is not just a theory nor is He just a thought. He is God.

Acts 7:51 You stubborn and stiff-necked people, still heathen and uncircumcised in heart and ears, you are always [f]actively resisting the Holy Spirit. As your forefathers [were], so you [are and so you do]!

Before Stephen died, he was calling his accusers stiffed neck and stubborn always RESISTING the Holy Spirit. Do you know the Holy Spirit or are you one who resists HIM? Stephen filled with the Holy Spirit manifested wonders and signs. If we are Christians, we are to become more spiritual beings and become more alien to this world. Yet most Christians today just as yesterday are still going through their humanistic routine in church.

Unless you are filled, baptized by the Holy Spirit Fire, it will become very difficult to persevere in the coming end days. In fact, if you are not filled and baptized by HIM, such person may end up deceived and will seek to kill God's chosen people as the pharisees had. 

May you all seek the Holy Spirit and be baptized by HIM and His Fire!

“Little children, let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth.” 1 John 3:18

“This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.” John 15:12

Many among us can say that we love one another but only few can put the love that they have into action. It is so easy to say “I love you” to others. It is so easy to say that you love God. But love is not just the feeling or the emotions that we have in our hearts. It must be the love coming into action as we love each other.

The love that Daddy God wants from us is the love that will be put into action. It is when we don’t just talk about the need to share Jesus, but we do it. It is not just to talk about the hungry, you feed them. It is not just to talk about that you love Jesus, you obey His commandments.

My people come to you, as they usually do, and sit before you to listen to your words, but they do not put them into practice. With their mouths they express devotion, but their hearts are greedy for unjust gain.” Ezekiel 33:31 

Jesus did not love with just words but in deed and truth. He gave His life for us. How many of us can give our life for others? The love that Daddy God gave us must flow out from us to others. By this we know that we are from God- if we are living in His love and showing His love to others.

Some of us say that we love our neighbors or friends, or co-workers, yet when they are out of our sight, we talk behind their backs. We spread gossips or we discuss to others their faults. We only love those who love us but Jesus said that we must specially love our enemies and those who persecute us. How many of us can remain still despite of the bad words that others are speaking against us? How many of us can forgive immediately? Many want to fight back and retaliate. But this is not for us Christians. We must learn to forgive and forget. We must not take it to heart the bad things that others have done to us.

If anyone says, "I love God," yet hates his brother, he is a liar. For anyone who does not love his brother, whom he has seen, cannot love God, whom he has not seen.” 1 John 4:20 

“Everyone who hates his brother is a murderer, and you know that no murderer has eternal life abiding in him.” 1 John 3:15

We say that we love others more than we love ourselves yet when we see them in need; we close our doors or turn our backs to them, or pretend that we have not seen them. How many of us can share the food that we eat to those who are hungry? How many can give our extra clothes to those who do not have? Daddy God told me that when you open your hands to help the needy, your open hands will receive more blessings and grace from Him, while the hands that are kept close will never receive. Whatever we did for others, we also did to the Lord.

“If a brother or sister is poorly clothed and lacking in daily food, 16 and one of you says to them, "Go in peace, be warmed and filled," without giving them the things needed for the body, what good is that?” James 2:15-16

“But if anyone has the world's goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God's love abide in him?” 1 John 3:17

“For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.’ Then the righteous will answer him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? And when did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?’ ..” Matthew 25:35-40

“And the crowds asked him, "What then shall we do?" 11 And he answered them, "Whoever has two tunics is to share with him who has none, and whoever has food is to do likewise." Luke 3:10-11 

Some of us obeyed Daddy God’s commandments because of the fear of going to hell. We fear that if we disobeyed Him and if we sin, we may end up in hell forever. The love that we have is not the perfect love that Daddy God wants. Perfect love is when we obey Him not because of our fear of going to hell but because we know that we are hurting Him whenever we sin. We obey Him because we love Him.

“By this is love perfected with us, so that we may have confidence for the day of judgment, because as he is so also are we in this world. 18 There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love.” 1 John 4:17-18

“Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world.” James 1:27

Exposing one's nakedness

Genesis 9:19 These are the three sons of Noah, and from them the whole earth was overspread and stocked with inhabitants.20 And Noah began to cultivate the ground, and he planted a vineyard.21 And he drank of the wine and became drunk, and he was uncovered and lay naked in his tent.22 And Ham, the father of Canaan, glanced at and saw the nakedness of his father and told his two brothers outside.23 So Shem and Japheth took a garment, laid it upon the shoulders of both, and went backward and covered the nakedness of their father; and their faces were backward, and they did not see their father’s nakedness.24 When Noah awoke from his wine, and knew the thing which his youngest son had done to him,25 He exclaimed, Cursed be Canaan! He shall be the [a]servant of servants to his brethren!26 He also said, Blessed be the Lord, the God of Shem! And blessed by the Lord my God be Shem! And let Canaan be his servant.27 May God enlarge Japheth; and let him dwell in the tents of Shem, and let Canaan be his servant.

When our husbands, wives, children, friends, mothers, fathers, Christian brethren, etc, makes mistakes or if they are in deep bondage or torment, what will you do as a husband, wife, son, daughter, Christian brother/sister, or friend? Will you be like Ham telling and complaining to others of the nakedness of your beloved? Or will you be like Shem and Japheth who laid their burden on their shoulders and covered the nakedness of their father?

Job's friends had spoken unprofitable things about Job thus speaking against God. But rather than Job taking offense, God had Job pray for his friends. Job's friends had to bring an offering and it was required of Job to pray for them otherwise God would have judged them. But at the same time, it was Job's choice to pray for those who had tried to verbally and emotionally hurt him. As Job had the heart of God and as he prayed for his three friends, God's anger was subsided and Job received a double blessing. Yes, Job received twice for his ordeal but it also conditional to him praying for people he probably did not want to pray for. What reward is there to love those we can easily love. We must love those who are unlovable and those who may be making it hard to love them.

Matthew 5:46 (AMP)For if you love those who love you, what reward can you have? Do not even the tax collectors do that?

Rather than pointing our dim lights at the wounds of others, it would be more prudent to carry their burden on our shoulders covering them with our love. Let us not expose the nakedness of our beloved members but rather let us cover them with our love and sacrifice even if it may cost us our lives. We must have the heart of God in us just as Moses had interceded for God's people when they were in horrific rebellion. God wanted to destroy them and start over with Moses. But Moses had the heart of God and asked for mercy. Are you looking for a new spouse or family to start over with because it appears it is not working out? Or will you have God's heart and intercede for your beloved? When Moses had gone up the mountain for 40 days, it had appeared God's people were not working out as they had built the golden calf to worship. God's people were stiffed neck and always complaining. They had complained to Moses and made his task very difficult. But even with that said, Moses had interceded TWICE on behalf of them as God's anger was kindled against the people. Moses had the heart of God. He had loved God's people!! Will you interceded for God's people? Will you intercede for your spouses? Will you intercede for your children? Will you intercede for those Christians brethren who had said offended words to you? Will you intercede for your congregation? Will you intercede and cover their nakedness rather than exposing their problems, shortcomings, addictions, and bondage for the wrong reasons? Ham had received a curse for exposing his father's nakedness. Beloved, let us seek and work through the Love of God.

Jesus had died as we were still sinners. He did not wait until we stopped. He loved and died for us as we were still sinners. Are you willing to receive His type of Heart in you? You must if you are to make this journey home.

How much are you willing to endure for your loved ones?

Have you fallen in Love with HIM?

All Christians say they love the Lord. Many love Him and many know He loves us but it may be by mostly mere knowledge. But the real question and test is have you fallen in Love with HIM? He rebukes the majority of churches in Revelation and says, "Return to your First Love!"

When a person falls in love, everything is wonderful of the person he/she has fallen in love with. When we fall in love with the Lord, it becomes easier to fall in love with others. It becomes easier to forgive. It becomes easier to give. It becomes easier to let go of bitterness/resentment. It becomes easier to give more grace. It becomes easier to give more mercy to others. It becomes easier to to appreciate creation. It becomes easier to speak continuously in a gentle tone. It becomes easier to give others another chance. It becomes easier to wait. It becomes easier to sacrifice for others. It becomes easier to walk in His Living Word.

Proverbs 17:9 (AMP) He who covers and forgives an offense seeks love, but he who repeats or harps on a matter separates even close friends.

When we fall in Love with the Lord and we can experience and apprehend the height, width, length, and breath of His Love, it is then you can truly experience loving your brethren. This is something hard to grasp with our finite minds. But once you realize the depth of Love from God and how He has forgiven you even though you may have consider yourself the least of all saints, it then becomes much easier to forgive others because we come to realize we did not deserve any of His Grace. Therefore, when we are able to give grace and forgiveness to others, it is His Grace and forgiveness that flows from us.

May you all be filled through all your being unto all the fullness of God. For His Glory!!

When is the rapture?

There is much talk about civil unrest and rapture before the end of this year. I heard one prophecy by November 2012, USA will be pretty much in total disarray. Many think rapture is imminent to the point that it will be by January 2013. There will be NO rapture by the end of this year nor by January 2013. Such same people said it was by Dec 2010 and other dates. Yes, many things are coming upon the earth. Yes, there will be many groans by the earth. But sorry, there will be no rapture by the end of this year. How do I know?

We may look for signs of the end times and look for the signs of rapture but you must also look for the signs that it may not happen now, this month, this year, or next year. You must look for both signs.

Many are spiritually packed and ready to go. Where in the bible does it say to be spiritually packed and ready? Do not be like the servant who buries their one "talent" in the ground. The master called such servants wicked and lazy. You must continue to seek His Will for your personal lives and make those "talents" go to work. This is to be rapture ready. You must be overcoming all your trials and tests. This is to be rapture ready. It is not to be rescued from your torments. His sons and daughters are Overcomers!!

Matthew 25:13-30
Watch therefore [give strict attention and be cautious and active], for you know neither the day nor the hour when the Son of Man will come.14 For it is like a man who was about to take a long journey, and he called his servants together and entrusted them with his property.15 To one he gave five talents [probably about $5,000], to another two, to another one—to each in proportion to his own [a]personal ability. Then he departed and left the country.16 He who had received the five talents went at once and traded with them, and he gained five talents more.17 And likewise he who had received the two talents—he also gained two talents more.18 But he who had received the one talent went and dug a hole in the ground and hid his master’s money.19 Now after a long time the master of those servants returned and settled accounts with them.20 And he who had received the five talents came and brought him five more, saying, Master, you entrusted to me five talents; see, here I have gained five talents more.21 His master said to him, Well done, you upright (honorable, [b]admirable) and faithful servant! You have been faithful and trustworthy over a little; I will put you in charge of much. Enter into and share the joy (the delight, the [c]blessedness) which your master enjoys.
22 And he also who had the two talents came forward, saying, Master, you entrusted two talents to me; here I have gained two talents more.23 His master said to him, Well done, you upright (honorable, [d]admirable) and faithful servant! You have been faithful and trustworthy over a little; I will put you in charge of much. Enter into and share the joy (the delight, the [e]blessedness) which your master enjoys.24 He who had received one talent also came forward, saying, Master, I knew you to be a harsh and hard man, reaping where you did not sow, and gathering where you had not winnowed [the grain].25 So I was afraid, and I went and hid your talent in the ground. Here you have what is your own.26 But his master answered him, You wicked and lazy and idle servant! Did you indeed know that I reap where I have not sowed and gather [grain] where I have not winnowed?27 Then you should have invested my money with the bankers, and at my coming I would have received what was my own with interest.28 So take the talent away from him and give it to the one who has the ten talents.29 For to everyone who has will more be given, and he will be [f]furnished richly so that he will have an abundance; but from the one who does not have, even what he does have will be taken away.30 And throw the good-for-nothing servant into the outer darkness; there will be weeping and grinding of teeth.

The storms and signs of the time are a warning to His people. It is a warning for His people to awake. We are sleeping because we are no longer praying. We rather look for signs and visible display. It is the lazy way. But Jesus said, the Kingdom of God does not come with signs and visible display.

Luke 17:20 (AMP) Asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God would come, He replied to them by saying, The kingdom of God does not come with signs to be observed or with visible display,

Jonah in chapter 2 was sleeping in the bottom of the boat while the storm was occurring. He had left the presence of God by not adhering to His Will. The mariner told him to awake! When Jesus went to pray in Gethsemane, the three disciples fell asleep. He told them to stay awake and pray! Do you not understand the revelation brethren? To stay awake is to be in prayer.

Matthew 26:41
All of you must keep awake (give strict attention, be cautious and active) and watch and pray, that you may not come into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.

Yes, the Lord's return is imminent! But He speaks in the context of eternity and not your physical time. I do believe He will return in my life but it will not be by the end of this year. Do you know His Voice? Do you not know His Ways? How will we know His Voice and Ways when most of us know so little of His Word? Do not be deceived brethren. Do not be burying your "talent" in the ground. For the servant caught burying their "talent" will be thrown into outer darkness where there will be weeping and grinding of teeth.

May you awake!! May you awake and be ready for HIM while you are in prayer and doing His Will!

He is our food!

Amos 5:4 (AMP) For thus says the Lord to the house of Israel: Seek Me [inquire for and of Me and require Me as you require food] and you shall live!

We need to physically eat everyday to survive and live. Why will Christians not spiritually eat everyday to have eternal life? In Amos, God is speaking to His people telling them to live! It is because most are being fed poison and told they only need to have eaten once. They are fed poison that they only need to eat once a week. But we are to require HIM as food. We need food everyday. We need HIM everyday!! We are to spiritually eat everyday whether in church or at our homes.

Acts 5:42 (AMP) Yet [in spite of the threats] they never ceased for a single day, both in the temple area and at home, to teach and to proclaim the good news (Gospel) of Jesus [as] the Christ (the Messiah).

If we are to be the church of Acts, then we need to never cease a single day, both in the temple area or at home to teach and to proclaim the good news. We are to be spending time with God everyday. The church of Acts were under threats but they moved forward. Most of us have no physical threats for seeking the gospel yet we are too lazy in our comfort.

John 6:53-66 And Jesus said to them, I assure you, most solemnly I tell you, you cannot have any life in you unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His blood [unless you appropriate His life and the saving merit of His blood].54 He who feeds on My flesh and drinks My blood has (possesses now) eternal life, and I will raise him up [from the dead] on the last day.55 For My flesh is true and genuine food, and My blood is true and genuine drink.56 He who feeds on My flesh and drinks My blood dwells continually in Me, and I [in like manner dwell continually] in him.57 Just as the living Father sent Me and I live by (through, because of) the Father, even so whoever continues to feed on Me [whoever takes Me for his food and is nourished by Me] shall [in his turn] live through and because of Me.58 This is the Bread that came down from heaven. It is not like the manna which our forefathers ate, and yet died; he who takes this Bread for his food shall live forever.59 He said these things in a synagogue while He was teaching at Capernaum.60 When His disciples heard this, many of them said, This is a hard and difficult and strange saying (an offensive and unbearable message). Who can stand to hear it? [Who can be expected to listen to such teaching?]61 But Jesus, knowing within Himself that His disciples were complaining and protesting and grumbling about it, said to them: Is this a stumbling block and an offense to you? [Does this upset and displease and shock and scandalize you?]62 What then [will be your reaction] if you should see the Son of Man ascending to [the place] where He was before?63 It is the Spirit Who gives life [He is the Life-giver]; the flesh conveys no benefit whatever [there is no profit in it]. The words (truths) that I have been speaking to you are spirit and life.64 But [still] some of you fail to believe and trust and have faith. For Jesus knew from the first who did not believe and had no faith and who would betray Him and be false to Him.65 And He said, This is why I told you that no one can come to Me unless it is granted him [unless he is enabled to do so] by the Father.66 After this, many of His disciples drew back (returned to their old associations) and no longer accompanied Him.

Jesus had said, unless you eat His flesh and drink His blood we cannot have life. Yet, in the last few verses, many of His disciples drew back and no longer accompanied HIM. Do you understand people? These were His disciples!! These were His people!! They drew back because they could not accept giving up their time, their resources, their goals, their future, and their lives over spending time with HIM. It required we eat His flesh and drink His Blood. We are to walk His path. We are to share in His suffering. We are to spend time with HIM. Or is this too hard? If it is too hard, just as those disciples drew back and return to their old lives, the danger is that we may draw back and return to our old ways as well.

Continue to move forward!! Do not look back as Lot's wife. Do not let guilt stop you. Do not look at your shortcomings. Look at HIM! Continue to move forward in HIM!!

Seek HIM as you require food and you shall live!!

Many of God's people feel like they are under a pressure cooker. They are frustrated. We are frustrated with many things in which we may be ashamed to share with others. We are frustrated with many sin. In the OT, when God's people strayed away, He would help them draw close to HIM by raising up some "pressure." He would raise up the Babylonians, Amorities, and other nations to harass His people.

When Jesus had come the first time, His people had asked Him when He would overthrow the Roman Empire and establish His Kingdom. The Roman Empire was occupying Israel and holding them under their rule. But sadly, they did not even realize why the Roman empire was there in the first place. The Roman Empire was there due to their sin. They had drifted so far away from HIM. Yes, they were still going through their religious rituals but they did not realize they had drifted so far away. Did Jesus not say He had come for the lost sheep of Israel?

In the OT, the physical occupation by other nations was a direct physical attack or pressure unto God's people as a whole. In the NT, we must look at many things as spiritual. The fight is now spiritual and not physical. The OT was the physical and NT is the spiritual counterpart in many ways.

When we are spiritually hindered or attacked whether that be our addictions, bondage, family problems, financial problems, health problems, or other problems, rather than asking Jesus to hurry and come get us (rapture) like His people did when the Romans occupied them, we should ask why are we being hindered or attacked in such manner. Why are we not achieving spiritual breakthrough?

It is like asking why am I not getting fit but we are barely working out. It is asking a question like, why am I not losing weight but we are not even exercising. You must physically eat everyday. Would you not eat and then ask yourself why you are getting physically weak and sick? If I only ate one time a week, would I not get sick? If I only ate from the bread of Life only on Sundays, is that enough for me to spiritual survive? Should I not eat spiritually everyday as I eat physically everyday?

We do many things to take care of our physical bodies. Many of us try to eat right. Many of us try to stay healthy. But what about our spiritual state? We would force ourselves even if we are tired to go to work. We know if we do not go to work, there will be consequences and we may not be able to pay our bills. But why do we not force ourselves to draw closer to God when many things are "pressuring" us? It is because our eyes are still on the physical rather than the eternal.

But God will allow and use the physical things in our lives to push us into the spiritual. Those physical things that put pressure on us are there so we may run to HIM. Many are acknowledging we need to call or go to HIM. But actions and thoughts are two different realms.

Force and draw yourself onto HIM as you force yourself to go to work even when you are tired. Force and draw yourself onto HIM as your life depends on it because it does. Seek HIM as you require food so that you may live!!

Luke 13:24 (AMP) Strive to enter by the narrow door [FORCE yourselves through it], for many, I tell you, will try to enter and will not be able.

Matthew 7:14 (AMP) But the gate is narrow (contracted by PRESSURE) and the way is straitened and compressed that leads away to life, and few are those who find it.

Amos 5:4
(AMP)  For thus says the Lord to the house of Israel: Seek Me [inquire for and of Me and require Me as you require food] and you shall live!

Glory to HIM

God may give a different measure of Grace for many different types people. He may give a different measure of Grace on one's income and resources. Some are rich and some are poor. In fact, many unbelievers are rich in resources as well. He is God and it is through His sovereign Will He dispenses that measure of financial Grace to determine what He may give you or anyone else. It is His right. He is God. 

For many of His children, the amount of our resources (income/economy) may depend on many factors. It may depend on our obedience. It may depend on where we are at with our walk with HIM. It may depend on our spiritual maturity. It may depend on His purpose for our lives. It may depend on many things. God uses our finances as a tool to mold, direct us. and for the purposes of His Kingdom. He gives based on His Will, desire, and purpose. He is God. He owns everything. He is the owner. 

His children must all tithe the same rate! We cannot determine on our own what to give back to God. We are not God. How can one determine what to tithe respect to another person? Are we to trust our own hearts when the bible says our own hearts are wicked? Are we the owner of our own resources to determine what we will tithe to God what is rightfully His? If we determine such amount on our own, are we not playing God? Therefore, whether you are rich or poor, you are all called to give the same. God is no respecter of persons. We are all called to give the same rate in tithe. We are all called to tithe 10% of our income. Some may have been given a greater measure of grace in their resources than others but both parties are required to give back the same rate because we are not God to determine our own rate. 

This is why many of God's children have not had the devourer rebuked as the enemy continues to destroy the fruit of their grounds. And this is why our finances may be cursed because we are not following God's commandments but trying to command HIM by determining what amount we are going to give HIM!

Malachi 3:10-12 (AMP) Bring all the tithes (the whole tenth of your income) into the storehouse, that there may be food in My house, and prove Me now by it, says the Lord of hosts, if I will not open the windows of heaven for you and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.11 And I will rebuke the devourer [insects and plagues] for your sakes and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground, neither shall your vine drop its fruit before the time in the field, says the Lord of hosts.12 And all nations shall call you happy and blessed, for you shall be a land of delight, says the Lord of hosts.

“It is the LORD who goes before you. He will be with you; he will not leave you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed." Deuteronomy 31:8

“Thus says the LORD, your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel: "I am the LORD your God, who teaches you to profit, who leads you in the way you should go.” Isaiah 48:17

In the Old Testament, God’s people, the Israelites, would inquire first for the word of the Lord before doing anything. They would inquire first before they go into the battle. They inquired of the Lord to determine who should be their king. They inquired of the LORD about His will in everything. They have special stones, the Urim and Thummim which the priests used in order to know what the Lord’s answer was. They also go to the priests or prophets to inquire of the LORD for them. Daddy God would sometimes answer them through visions and dreams.

Just like before, Daddy God wants us to seek and inquire after Him concerning our life and what we do. We must free our hearts from any idols and we must not insist going our own way. We can learn from the life of King Saul. King Saul was the first King anointed by God. At first, he was a devout follower of God. But soon, he began to stray from following the LORD. He disobeyed Daddy God and he did things in his own way. When things didn’t go along as quickly as he wanted, he offered burnt sacrifice which was lawful only for the priests. (1 Samuel 13) And then, he disobeyed God by not destroying all the Amalekites and their possessions. We must not be like King Saul who refused to inquire of the LORD and obey Him. We must not go ahead of God. We must seek Daddy God first before making decisions. Daddy God has all the answers. He has all the solutions and all directions that we need.

“I know, O LORD, that the way of man is not in himself, that it is not in man who walks to direct his steps.” Jeremiah 10:23

“Who is the man who fears the LORD? Him will he instruct in the way that he should choose.” Psalm 25:12

After Saul disobeyed God, the LORD has sought out a man after His own heart. He had anointed David to be prince over his people. King David is a man who always inquires of the Lord. Unlike Saul, David always wanted to know God’s will and when He discovered that, He sought to do it. How many of us today are like King David who would inquire first of the Lord before making decisions? If we will be like King Saul who insisted on his ways, Daddy God will find someone to replace us, someone who will always seek to follow and obey Him fully.

“He leads the humble in what is right, and teaches the humble his way.” Psalm 25:9

“Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. 6 In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.” Proverbs 3:5-6

Many among us tend to do things in our own way. We often think that it is okay to do our own plans and we think that God will still guide us through. But Daddy God will not be with us if it is not what He wants for us to do no matter how we are striving hard. Many Christians are unaware that they are going ahead of God. And they wonder why their plans do not succeed. If we do things without inquiring the Lord for permission, it will all be in vain. We must always seek and inquire the Lord.

In the Old Testament, Moses assured the Israelites that Daddy God will be with them. His presence will be with them as long as they remain faithful in following His commandments. This can also be applied to us Christians. We must remain faithful to Him. We must obey His commandments fully.

There are times that we do not know what we should do. If we do not know what we should do, then we must pray. We must keep on praying until we get an answer from God. It is during our prayer that we get to know God’s will. It is during our prayer that God will give us wisdom and knowledge so we will know His will.

“And your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, "This is the way, walk in it," when you turn to the right or when you turn to the left.” Isaiah 30:21

If we go to places where we should not be in, or if we do the things that we should not be doing, then Daddy God cannot use us.  We must pray, “Lord, let Your will be done in my life always. Show me and teach me in the way that I should go. If what I am about to do is not Your will, let me know Lord. Please close all the doors that will lead me away from the path that You have prepared for me. Open the right way Lord and direct me in the right path. Show me what to do. Lead me where to go. I want to follow Your will. I want to walk in Your way. Please confirm it to me and give me peace concerning it. I want to live my life knowing that You are with me because I am following You. Thank you because I know that You love me. Thank you because I know that You are my Father and I have peace in You. Amen.”

“I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my eye upon you.” Psalm32:8

“The steps of a man are established by the LORD, when he delights in his way; 24 though he fall, he shall not be cast headlong, for the LORD upholds his hand.” Psalm 37:23-24

There are more bad prophecies than good

Just because there are multiple confirmations on a event or word does not mean they are from God. Just because there may be many professing prophets or servants of God with the same word, vision, or dream does not make it valid or true from God.

Before Ahab and Jehoshaphat went to war against Syria (1 Kings 22), all the prophets about 400 told the king a false prophecy that he would have victory. But there was only one prophet, Micaiah, who was being held in prison that was the true prophet and spoke Truth. All true prophets will be persecuted. Micaiah had said that a lying spirit was in the mouths of the 400 prophets.

Elijah was only one man against 450 false prophets of Baal and 400 false prophets of Asherah. Jeremiah was in the minority. The other false prophets were sending comfort messages of peace when Jeremiah was telling them to repent and surrender to Babylon. Jeremiah's message was hard to swallow and accept. John the Baptist was one man against a system or institution of vipers who were basically God's people who were corrupted. They had lost their ways into religion. And Jesus had said I have come for the lost sheep of Israel. Most His people were lost!!

Even today, the pattern is the same. The false messages will be of comfort and an easy way out. The hard true message will be rejected by the majority as there will be a majority of false prophets who will lead people to destruction into the wide road.

Today is no different. He is returning and most of His sheep are lost as many have been deceived. Rather than chasing HIM and rather than praying to receive the Holy Spirit and Power to be His witnesses unto the nations, their eyes are on events and the storms of life. They asked HIM when He would overthrow the Romans to establish His Kingdom. They wanted him to get involved in their politics. But His Will was for them to pray and receive the power of the Holy Spirit so they may do His Will and work.

Are we really waiting for His Return? What is that definition? What is to believe? What is faith? Is it just to acknowledge God exist? What is our proof that we believe? If we are the children of the MOST HIGH, how are we to be manifested in this world? Is it just to post "I love God" on Facebook? How should we be growing in HIM? Is getting a job promotion proof we are His? Is just going to church once a week proof we are His? Is praying over a meal proof we are His? Is chasing after signs and prophecy of the end of the world proof we are His?

John 14:12 (AMP) I assure you, most solemnly I tell you, if anyone steadfastly believes in Me, he will himself be able to do the things that I do; and he will do even greater things than these, because I go to the Father.

The KEY word in the above verse is "steadfastly." In other versions, it may use the word "continue." The word says if we steadfastly or continue to believe in HIM. In other words, if we continue to grow, following, trusting, and believing in HIM, then we will do the things that HE did!!! Are we doing the things He did during His ministry? Yes, many have not reached the greater works but have we at least reached the first level to do what HE DID?

Mark 16:17-19 (AMP)  And these attesting signs will accompany those who believe: in My name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new languages;18 They will pick up serpents; and [even] if they drink anything deadly, it will not hurt them; they will lay their hands on the sick, and they will get well.19 So then the Lord Jesus, after He had spoken to them, was taken up into heaven and He sat down at the right hand of God.

And the signs will ACCOMPANY THOSE WHO BELIEVE! Beside looking for signs all over the world for the end, what signs are you manifesting? Do you not know brethren? As His people, we are to be His signs and wonders to shine brightly from the darkness of the world.

Isaiah 8:18 (AMP) Behold, I and the children whom the Lord has given me are [a]signs and wonders [that are to take place] in Israel from the Lord of hosts, Who dwells on Mount Zion.

When many of the false prophecies and event do not turn out and are proven false, when will we stop to repent and start focusing on Jesus rather than the news of the world.

Acts 1:11 (AMP) Who said, Men of Galilee, why do you stand gazing into heaven? This same Jesus, Who was caught away and lifted up from among you into heaven, will return in [just] the same way in which you saw Him go into heaven.

The angel told the men of Galilee that Jesus will return the same way they saw HIM go into heaven. They were looking directly at Jesus. But if your eyes are on events and signs, then you will miss HIM.

Luke 17:20 (AMP) Asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God would come, He replied to them by saying, The kingdom of God does not come with signs to be observed or with visible display,

Yes, the signs are there in the world to let us know we may be in the time and season. And, yes, His return is imminent. But His return has been imminent since He had first left. When He left, He commanded us to receive the Power of the Holy Spirit and be His witnesses. His command was not to spiritually pack up our bags and just wait. We are to be working in the field so that we will not be taken by surprise.

One day, everything will turn upside down. But will we be ready with His Power to do the greater works and for the end time harvest? Or will be spiritually packed with our bags and sleeping?

History has proven the majority has ALWAYS been wrong. Ask God for His wisdom and His strength to stay in prayer so that you may not fall asleep or deceived when He returns. You are all called to be His soldiers of the Cross. This means we are to be ready. You are not called to seek a easy way out on to vacation.

May He lead all of us to His Truth during these end times. I see so many falling away into deception. Even the mature ones are falling away into deception. Lord have mercy on your people!!!

Where the Spirit is, there is Liberty!

Many of God's people are experiencing the new wine. In fact, they are becoming the new wine in these last days. However, as God's chosen are being manifested throughout the world, the established old sacks are not able to handle the new wine. The old sacks are set in their old ways. The old sacks are only seeking to increase their personal kingdoms rather than God's. The old sacks are oppressing and persecuting God's chosen new wine vessels. The old wine sacks use the authority God had given them to rule and lord over His people with control, manipulation, and fear.

Many are experiencing God's Holy Spirit and Fire. As the Holy Spirit and Fire cleanses and manifest His chosen people, the old wine folks are not to keen on the new wine. Many who are moving and living in the Spirit are manifesting in the Spirit as their hands may shake. They may be speaking in new tongue. They may be singing in tongue. They may be dancing in the Spirit as they have received the Holy Spirit dance gift. They may be seeking to live in holiness. They are desiring to keep and walk in God's commandments. They are desiring to be a sign unto HIM. A people separated unto HIM as they are 4th commandment keepers (Sundays) in which many have forgotten. They are tithers and first fruit givers unto His Kingdom. They are those God has put in the wildernesses just as He had put John the Baptist in the wilderness to train and teach. They are being sent into the fire to be refined like gold and silver. They are the sons and daughters who are LEAD BY THE SPIRIT!!

Currently, it is very sad as there are not many new wine sacks to accommodate the new wine. Many of God's people who are the new wine must for the moment endure and persevere as God is working behind the scene to establish new churches. These will be new churches established not in the traditional sense but by many lay believers and ordinary folks.

Joel 2:28-29 (AMP)And afterward I will pour out My Spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions.29 Even upon the menservants and upon the maidservants in those days will I pour out My Spirit.

If you are the new wine and if you continue to allow yourself to be oppressed in the old sacks, you may end up spiritually dying. Many new wine desire to worship openly without restraint. But as they are being restrained, they are being spiritually put to death. Ask God to free you and help you find new wine sack in which you can find REST IN HIM. Where the Spirit is, there is LIBERTY!
