Do not participate in halloween

Why would we let our children be dressed as witches, demons, and other assorted monsters? Why do many people decorate their house like a graveyard, putting skulls and bones?
If you are celebrating halloween, you are worshiping the enemy of this world, Satan. It is a day that generally glorifies the dark things of this world.
Instead of celebrating the halloween, christians should be praying, praising and worshiping the Lord. Our God is the God of the living and not the dead.
Philippians 4:8—think about pure, lovely, noble things
James 1:27—“keep oneself from being polluted by the world”
3 John 1:11—“do not imitate what is evil”
Romans 12:9—“abhor what is evil. Cling to what is good"
Deuteronomy 18:9-14—do not learn to imitate detestable ways, including spiritists,sorcerers and witchcraft
Ephesians 5:11-12—“Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness” / “live as children of light”
1 Timothy 4:1—don’t ”follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons”
2 Corinthians 6:14-17—“what fellowship can light have with darkness?”
1 Corinthians 11:1—“follow the example of Christ”
"The night is almost gone; the day of salvation will soon be here. So remove your dark deeds like dirty clothes, and put on the shining armor of right living." Romans 13:12

Rules and Principles of Christian living and warfare

"Let us constantly bear in mind the rules and principles of Christian warfare; namely, that we conquer by yielding, we receive by giving, we overcome by being defeated, and we live by dying. There is no other way except the way of the Cross. The Cross of Christ stands out on the horizons of time and eternity, not only as the means of pardon from sin and the gateway to Eternal Life--but as the one and only principle of Christian conduct. "If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it." (Matt. 16:24,25). - George


We must understand the rules and principles of Christian warfare and living. The conduct of a Christian is to continuously deny oneself. But today's Christians are too much alive in the flesh. We want to blame everyone else. We want to find the easy wide road even though we professing to be walking on the narrow road. We carass worldly idols but yet we deny we have idols. Just as in the old days, many are in sin and many are dying in their sins as judgment and curses are upon them. We must humble ourselves and be awaken to what is really around us.

Jesus said, "Come follow ME." How many of us are really following HIM? How many are really believing in HIM? How many really have genuine faith? There are too many fake Christians. It is time to return to our First Love. How do you know you are not a fake and just a professing Christian? God will one day ask you, where is your fruit? Your time on Facebook does not define your fruit nor does it make up the guilt of not spending enough time with HIM.

HE will say to many Christians, "I do NOT know you! Away from ME you evil doers! Law breakers!"

We need to know the law of the spiritual realm

The law of the spiritual realm is very accurate and fair. Even if we entertain the thoughts of complaining, hate, fear, jealousy, envy, anger, pride, and lust, such spirits will enter into our hearts. When they enter into our hearts, we will experience some type of disaster.

No one will experience sudden disaster or judgement without any reason behind it. These disasters will begin to work at the moment when we first begin to sow bad seeds with our thoughts, hearts, words and free will or choice. Many people live their lives without coming to understand the spiritual reality. Every incident or event has some type of background or history. There are positive backgrounds and evil backgrounds. Good or positive background is of God and evil background is of the devil.

It is so important to understand the spiritual realm! Once you understand the spiritual realm, you will be most careful in all things. We will be most careful in guarding our speech, thoughts, and behavior! When you gather together, be thankful, worship, share the love of the Lord, and confess the goodness of God. Only then, the spiritual atmosphere of where you are present will be filled with the fragrance of the Lord. When such atmosphere is constantly formed and maintained, your souls will be transformed. At the same time, your circumstances and surrounding will be blessed with the fullness of God's grace. You will experience abundance.

Whenever we hold conversations on certain topics, the evil spirits relating to that particular topic or matter will begin to gather around us.Through the conversation, a certain energy will form and this energy will surround you. Complaining, criticizing, gossiping, and slandering will directly and realistically bring destruction. Therefore for this reason, the Holy Spirit grieves.

Evil speech is fatal to the weak believers. When weak believers listens or participates in evil speech, the evil energy and/or spirits will enter into the weak believers. This is why when evil speech is spoken, the other party who are listening or receiving may feel and encounter pain, be suppressed, stressed and oppressed. Through this path, as the evil spirits enter into a person, the moment it enters, the evil spirits will attempt to settle in. If the person does not have the proper conditions for the evil spirit to settle, the evil spirit will make that person sick or create some type of pain for a short period. But, nevertheless, it will have to leave this person. But if the proper conditions are met for the evil spirits to dwell and settle, they will then begin to build their fortress or stronghold. 

Once they build their fortress stronghold, they will not easily leave. The evil spirits and their fortress will then become a generation curse and the evil spirits will move down to the next generation. The evil spirits will even assert future descendants. The evil spirit will pass down to the future generations.  When you gather together, please observe precisely and very carefully if you have any weak people or believers. You must not carry on negative conversations which will attract the evil spirits. Do not carry on conversations that does not edify the Body of Christ.

Fighting a battle for only one hour a week enough?

In the Old Testament, the saints had to physically go fight and war against their enemies. Many sons, brothers, and fathers died in battle. They had to fight and war to take the land, possess the spoil of the enemy, and eventually reach the promise land. During the battle, the army of the Most High did not initially plan to fight for only one hour. In any given fight, they did not plan to fight for only two hours. They fought until they either won or died. They did not have time to take a break to look at their smartphones to look at the sports scores during the battle. They did not leave during the middle of the battle to go to Disneyland. Even when they were exhausted, they had to continue in the fight until it was over, otherwise,  if they had given up due to their exhaustion, they would have died.

Today, in the New Testament era, our fight is not flesh nor physical. Our fight is spiritual and our fight is against the principalities, against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, and of the air. Many of us cannot see the evil we are fighting but the fight is more real than the physical.

Ephesians 6:12 For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places.

In the Old Testament, if the men, fathers, sons, and brothers decided not to fight, then there would be grave consequences. The consequences would not only be for their families and tribe but for the who nation. Many came together under the banner of God to fight as HE led them. Is it easier to fight a enemy that we can see rather than one we cannot see, is it not?

Today, our fight is spiritual. When we gather together as a church, we not only worship God, but we are fighting in the spiritual. Our service of worship, preaching, and praying are methods of fighting in the spiritual realm. We must continue to fight each day on our own as we need to pray as individuals and families without ceasing.

But sadly, many Christian families are defeated because they no longer fight. The devil and his hordes of demons but laugh at the people of God. Today, the people of God put limits on their war time. Many cannot handle service that goes beyond more than one hour. Many will not sacrifice their weekends to fight for the call of God. Can soldiers tell each other they will only fight for one hour and then go watch sports, go fishing, picnicking, golfing, and such when families are being tormented, in sickness, chaos, and being cursed by the rulers of evil of the unseen world? Is this how we treat the Lord's Day, the 4th commandment, and think there will be no consequences? Just because your nation is at peace does not mean you are still not in the spiritual war that will determine your eternity. Many captains and officers such as their pastors lead the sheep blindly into battle. Without even seeking victory, they look at the congregation as their measure of standard to determine if they will stay in spiritual battle or end the service to make their people happy. Most service times are but a cater to the people rather than a service to God. Many churches are closing down in defeat. The spiritual war is very real. The effects and physical manifestations are very real. Many are sick. Many are in poverty. Many are in personal chaos. Many are scattered. Many are running. Many are cursed. Many search for answers not realizing they have taken off their armor as they spend less time with God and more time with the entertainment and leisure things of the world.

Wars between nations are raging. Ebola and other diseases are raging. Famine in various places are here and emerging. But sadly, most of God's people have no faith in order to hold their ground as many have given up their spiritual ground to the enemy. Many are in personal dilemmas.

What is the answer? Here is your answer. Many need to get on their knees and start repenting for forsaking HIM. Many think they are believing and serving God but in reality, they are cheating on God. They will not give up their worldly idols. If you or your family member is dying of cancer or other disease, what offering will you give to God for HIM to answer your prayer? Can you give up your NFL sports and decide to use that time to pray and spend it on God? Can you give up your weekly golf outings with your buddies? Can you give up watching so much TV? Can you give up all that money you spend on entertainment and make a peace offering to God so that your family may be healed? Can you give up playing video games as an offering to God and instead start reading HIS Word? Can you give up your soccer? Can you give up your weekends with the friends out and go to church and seek HIM more? Can you give up your pet because some of you spend more time and spend more money on your pet than with God?  Can you give up your boyfriend or girlfriend that you are having premarital sex and either get married now for HIM or will you continue to stay in sin? Can you pray at least one hour a day so that you or your family member can be healed? Or is watching TV much easier? Life and death is a choice in this life.

Most of His people are not willing to give up anything. They want something from God for free. Where your time is, is where your heart is. May HIS people return to their first Love. May HIS people learn to know HIS ways for their lack of knowing HIS Ways are but destroying them.

We are in spiritual war. If you choose not to fight by staying in prayer, worship, and prayer each day but rather with the things of the world then your defeat in life will manifest as it will be the fruit you eat. It will be what you had sown. The spiritual war is very real. Do not think going to church for one hour a week or so will save you.  You must be committed.

Hosea 4:6 NLT
My people are being destroyed
    because they don’t know me.
Since you priests refuse to know me,
    I refuse to recognize you as my priests.
Since you have forgotten the laws of your God,
    I will forget to bless your children.

Here is another translation

Hosea 4:6 CEV

 You priests have rejected me and my people are destroyed by refusing to obeyNow I’ll reject you and forget your children, because you have forgotten my Law.

To those who are concerned with Ebola and other issues of the world. Read the Word, spend time with God, pray, worship, and be sanctified. Then your faith will grow as you are tested. Otherwise, your own fears will be what you have sown. If you do not spend the time with God, then you will not know the promises of God.
Romans 10:14 (NLT) But how can they call on him to save them unless they believe in him? And how can they believe in him if they have never heard about him? And how can they hear about him unless someone tells them?
The above verse is not for just the unbelievers. It is for the weak believers and baby Christians. How can you believe in HIM if you never heard about HIM? Or we can say, how can you believe in HIM if you have never spent the time reading HIS Word to know the promises in the Word to save you? How can you believe in HIM if you do not spend the time with HIM in prayer?
As children of the Most High, those with obedient hearts and faith will be able to appropriate the promises of the Word while everyone else will run and store up in fear. We are to be the salt and light of the world. We are not to run and be in fear like the world. Examine your own faith and see if your faith is genuine.
Psalm 91
1 Those who live in the shelter of the Most High
will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
2 This I declare about the Lord:
He alone is my refuge, my place of safety;
he is my God, and I trust him.
3 For he will rescue you from every trap
and protect you from deadly disease.
4 He will cover you with his feathers.
He will shelter you with his wings.
His faithful promises are your armor and protection.
5 Do not be afraid of the terrors of the night,
nor the arrow that flies in the day.
6 Do not dread the DISEASE that stalks in darkness,
nor the disaster that strikes at midday.
7 Though a thousand fall at your side,
though ten thousand are dying around you,
these evils will not touch you.
8 Just open your eyes,
and see how the wicked are punished.
9 If you make the Lord your refuge,
if you make the Most High your shelter,
10 no evil will conquer you;
no PLAGUE will come near your home.
11 For he will order his angels
to protect you wherever you go.
12 They will hold you up with their hands
so you won’t even hurt your foot on a stone.
13 You will trample upon lions and cobras;
you will crush fierce lions and serpents under your feet!
14 The Lord says, “I will rescue those who love me.
I will protect those who trust in my name.
15 When they call on me, I will answer;
I will be with them in trouble.
I will rescue and honor them.
16 I will reward them with a long life
and give them my salvation.”

The Helper

The woman will be saved by childbearing. What does this mean? Does it mean that woman will be saved by having babies? If you look at the amplied, the word childbearing has a capital "C."

1 Tim 2:14-15 And it was not Adam who was deceived by Satan. The woman was deceived, and sin was the result. 15 But women will be saved through childbearing,[c] assuming they continue to live in faith, love, holiness, and modesty.

When we go back to Genesis chapter 3, we find that Eve was first deceived. Eve or the women are to be the man's helper. The man or Adam is the one in authority over the earth. Eve or women are to be the man's helper, adviser, one who influences, and so on.

Kings, prime ministers, presidents, and ones in authority have advisers, wise men, counselors, and people of knowledge to help make decisions. But it is the king or president that makes the final decision. With the families, the wives were called to be the helpers for the husbands.

Genesis 3:17-19 And to the man he said,

“Since you listened to your wife and ate from the tree
    whose fruit I commanded you not to eat,
the ground is cursed because of you.
    All your life you will struggle to scratch a living from it.
18 It will grow thorns and thistles for you,
    though you will eat of its grains.
19 By the sweat of your brow
    will you have food to eat
until you return to the ground
    from which you were made.
For you were made from dust,
    and to dust you will return.”

It was Eve who had given the forbidden fruit to Adam and thus because of Eve's mistake, Adam will pay the price. Everything Adam or the husband touches is now cursed.  The forbidden fruit can represent many things. The forbidden fruit can represent disobedience to God's Will, sin, listening to false prophesy, and so on.

I know a personal story in which God called a certain couple. They were called to the nations to go on missions. The family had a business and a lived in a nice neighborhood. The husband wanted to sell most everything and go to God's work. But the wife resisted. The wife wanted to stay, keep the business, and buy their million dollar home. At the end, the husband agreed with the wife. They bought a nice home worth a million dollars. Life seem to be great. Then in several months, the husband was struck with a rare brain disorder. He was the 6th person in the USA to have such a disease. He lived in a twilight zone. His memory was affected. He could not remember what had just happened 5 minutes prior. He would go up to familiar people and say, "Hey, we have met before?" Then he would greet the same person the same way when he saw him/her again a little later. However, he still retained the knowledge of God. He was still able to worship but his mind was in disorder. He could no longer keep his business. They were losing everything and because of his condition, he could not repent!

My wife and I had prophesy to the wife that she needed to repent and do God's Will and calling. But she reported us to her pastor and we were shut down. She was the key to his healing. She was the key to their salvation. She was the only one now in authority to repent on behalf of her husband and family. It was she who had given the forbidden fruit to the husband.

Even though Eve was the first to sin, it is Adam or the husband to pay the price. However, there is still the possibility for restoration. But Eve is the key. Even is the one created to be the helper. Eve is the one to be intercession for the husband and family. This is why many churches are filled with women. The women are called to pray for the families restoration.

Gensis3:16 To the woman He said, I will greatly multiply your grief and your suffering in pregnancy and the pangs of childbearing; with spasms of distress you will bring forth children. Yet your desire and craving will be for your husband, and he will rule over you.

Yes, the physical birth pains has increased but the spiritual birth pain has even greatly increased. In order for restoration and life, the wives and mothers must now pray longer, suffering more from their husbands (unbelievers/religious), grieving more from the circumstances of life. It will not be a quick prayer fix. The wives and mothers must be on their knees to endure the spiritual pangs of childbearing. In 1 Tim 2, the birthing is for the Child. The capital "C" is the birthing of life into the family and husband. The capital "C" or Child is the birth of salvation or Jesus through their prayers and intercession.  In 1 Tim 2 verse 15 "But women will be saved through childbearing,[c] assuming they continue to live in faith, love, holiness, and modesty." It is still conditional to the women assuming they CONTINUE to live in faith, love, holiness, and modesty.

Luke 23:28 (AMP) But Jesus, turning toward them, said, Daughters of Jerusalem, do not weep for Me, but weep for yourselves and for your children.

To the wives and mothers, do not look at your husbands and your circumstances. You have been created to be the helper of your husbands. Your job is to be on your knees and pray even if it take years to intercede for your husbands and families. Do not be expecting your husbands to fulfill your roles. Do not be blaming them. We are all paying the price for the original fall. You are called to be the spiritual Proverbs 31 wife.

Proverbs 31:10-15 Who can find a virtuous and capable wife?
    She is more precious than rubies.
11 Her husband can trust her,
    and she will greatly enrich his life.
12 She brings him good, not harm,
    all the days of her life.
13 She finds wool and flax
    and busily spins it.
14 She is like a merchant’s ship,
    bringing her food from afar.
15 She gets up before dawn to prepare breakfast for her household
    and plan the day’s work for her servant girls.

Preparing breakfast is not about physical food only but spiritually preparing the day through her prayers.

God bless and for HIS Glory.

Enter the Holy of Holies

Daughters of Jerusalem, weep for yourselves!

As world events and storms occurs such as the war against terrorists (ISIS), ebola, earthquakes, famines, drought, protests, and others, may the Christians be the salt and light of the world. May HIS people who are called by HIS Name learn to be still and know HE is God. If HE allows the world to become darker, it is to allow HIS Light to shine brighter from HIS people. It is to separate the wheat and tares. His judgments will show HIS Righteousness even among HIS disobedient people. We must know HIS Ways. Such calamities will also bring cleansing onto the land to prepare for the harvest. 

Isaiah 45:7  I create the light and make the darkness. I send good times and bad times. I, the Lord, am the one who does these things.

Haggai 1:11 I have called for a drought on your fields and hills—a drought to wither the grain and grapes and olive trees and all your other crops, a drought to starve you and your livestock and to ruin everything you have worked so hard to get.”

Throughout history, there has always been wars, rumors of wars, pestilence, famine, droughts, protests, fear of the end, and so on and so on. What has changed? The world will always have its issues. What are God's people to do? 

God wants us to stop looking at the world's problem for the world will always have its problems. God wants us to seek HIS Face. God wants us cleansed and purified so that we can enter the Holy of Holies with HIM. 

Many Christians get together to pray for the concerns of the world but we must first get the proper order. Many Christians fail to pray for themselves and their families. What use is it to go on missions or witness for Jesus telling people to forgive when they have yet to forgive themselves? What use is it to go preach that Jesus will restore their families yet when their own families are in ruins? 

Luke 23:27-28 (NLT)A large crowd trailed behind, including many grief-stricken women. 28 But Jesus turned and said to them, “Daughters of Jerusalem, don’t weep for me, but weep for yourselves and for your children.

Before Jesus left, what did HE command us to do? Did HE command us to pray for the concerns of the world? No, HE said to pray for the power of the Holy Spirit to be a witness to Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria, and then to the Nations. Jerusalem is where the physical temple was located. Where is the temple of God now? It is in you! Therefore, you are now spiritual Jerusalem. Please be a witness to yourself first.

We must pray for ourselves and weep for our own sins repenting and bearing fruits of repentance. We must be cleansed and have forgiven. We must prepare ourselves to meet the King in the Holy of Holies. We can meet HIM now spiritually. HE is coming for you now. His coming is not only a physical event but it is to be a spiritual event for all HIS children even now.

Ester had riguorously prepared herself to meet the king. She had sacrificed her life to meet the king. What are we doing to meet the King of Kings? We spend four hours watching worldly sports shouting for strangers making offerings to their industries. We watch useless hours of TV to gain nothing and lose precious time. We continue to spend less time with God but we think we are getting ready for HIM? 

When Ester met the king and received his favor, she was able to intercede for her people. He was willing to give her half his kingdom. God wants us prepared like Ester so that we may enter the Holy of Holies. We must be praying to prepare ourselves. We must be cleansed and purified. We must remove our sins and idols. The concerns of the world are but a distraction away from HIM. 

When we seek HIS Face with all our hearts and when we meet HIM in the Holy of Holies, HE will grant whatever we ask in HIS Name. Then as we have prepared ourselves for the King and as we are in HIS Presence, we can now intercede for our families and the nations. 

The bible says that the prayers of the wicked are an abomination to God. The unbelievers do not pray so this scripture is referring to HIS people. This is why much of our prayers are not answered because our temples are defied. The world is in chaos and HE is waiting for HIS people to seek HIS Face in the midst of such storms and learn to be still. 

And through HIS Bride who has prepared herself, HE will perform the greater works through them. May the Holy Spirit lead you to all HIS Truth. May you find HIS Mercy and Grace.
