She walks the streets and puts up the signs and says call me and call me and call me

Yo my momma is a ho, my mamma is a ho, my momma is a ho!!!!

In case you’re wondering what I am going to preach on today it’s Ezekiel 16.

The Church is the Bride of Jesus – and Israel – and this only applies to Israel, DO NOT TAKE A PERSONAL APPLICATION TO THIS!!!!

Jerusalem’s Harlotry

15 “But you trusted in your own beauty, played the harlot because of your fame, and poured out your harlotry on everyone passing by who would have it. 16 You took some of your garments and adorned multicolored high places for yourself, and played the harlot on them. Such things should not happen, nor be. 17 You have also taken your beautiful jewelry from My gold and My silver, which I had given you, and made for yourself male images and played the harlot with them. 18 You took your embroidered garments and covered them, and you set My oil and My incense before them. 19 Also My food which I gave you—the pastry of fine flour, oil, and honey which I fed you—you set it before them as sweet incense; and so it was,” says the Lord God.

20 “Moreover you took your sons and your daughters, whom you bore to Me, and these you sacrificed to them to be devoured. Were your acts of harlotry a small matter, 21 that you have slain My children and offered them up to them by causing them to pass through the fire? 22 And in all your abominations and acts of harlotry you did not remember the days of your youth, when you were naked and bare, struggling in your blood.

23 “Then it was so, after all your wickedness—‘Woe, woe to you!’ says the Lord God— 24 that you also built for yourself a shrine, and made a high place for yourself in every street. 25 You built your high places at the head of every road, and made your beauty to be abhorred. You offered yourself to everyone who passed by, and multiplied your acts of harlotry. 26 You also committed harlotry with the Egyptians, your very fleshly neighbors, and increased your acts of harlotry to provoke Me to anger.

27 “Behold, therefore, I stretched out My hand against you, diminished your allotment, and gave you up to the will of those who hate you, the daughters of the Philistines, who were ashamed of your lewd behavior. 28 You also played the harlot with the Assyrians, because you were insatiable; indeed you played the harlot with them and still were not satisfied. 29 Moreover you multiplied your acts of harlotry as far as the land of the trader, Chaldea; and even then you were not satisfied.

30 “How degenerate is your heart!” says the Lord God, “seeing you do all these things, the deeds of a brazen harlot.

The reason why God was so mad at Israel was because she prostituted herself instead of seeking after her husband, the LORD JEHOVAH!!!

Man, this is the same guy that makes the volcano’s errupt and they are seeking after other lovers, what a shame!!!!  What a shame, what a shame.

Israel had her true love in the Lord Jesus Christ, so when God was writing this book of Ezekiel, He was stepping forward into time, and seeing His Son on the Cross, and remembering the pain associated with His Son being on the Cross, so then He stepped back into the past and consumed His wrath upon them.  He was so Jealous, and Jesus was so hurt, and then Jesus in the book of Revelation 2 goes into the future about the Church of Ephesus, and recalls Himself being crucified, and then goes to Ezekiel 16, and says –

My Jerusalem – my one and only Jerusalem – My bride my one and only bride the Church, how can you forget me, the One who loves you.  Then it is like Isaiah 54.  For this is like the waters of Noah to Me;
For as I have sworn
That the waters of Noah would no longer cover the earth,
So have I sworn
That I would not be angry with you, nor rebuke you.
10 For the mountains shall depart
And the hills be removed,
But My kindness shall not depart from you,
Nor shall My covenant of peace be removed,”
Says the Lord, who has mercy on you.

Remember the movie Pretty Woman, with Julia Roberts?  Well this is what this is like.  In the movie, Julia Roberts is a prositute who goes after a rich man, but in this context, the prostitute, already had a husband who she loved, and she really loved and was pretty much just selling herself short, she was beautiful, but she left him for another man, and He hated it, – “Jesus was asking His Father?”  Why doesn’t she love me?  Why doesn’t she love me?  Why doesn’t she love me?  So then the Father had to answer back in Ezekiel 16 and say that it is because they have left their true love.

Jerusalem’s Adultery

31 “You erected your shrine at the head of every road, and built your high place in every street. Yet you were not like a harlot, because you scorned payment. 32 You are an adulterous wife, who takes strangers instead of her husband. 33 Men make payment to all harlots, but you made your payments to all your lovers, and hired them to come to you from all around for your harlotry. 34 You are the opposite of other women in your harlotry, because no one solicited you to be a harlot. In that you gave payment but no payment was given you, therefore you are the opposite.”

The Bride is going to be exact like her mother.  It even says so in verse 44.

But let me tell you why He’s saying all this.  He won’t let it go that far, but you know when we all get mad, we say things we don’t mean, and we get really furious and we yell and scream, imagine if a husband who loves his wife caught him cheating on her with another man, and this man was his worst enemy.  Wouldn’t he be furious?  He would absolutely be furious!!!  He would be so mad, that He would yell and say – imagine this scenario –

He’s got sweat coming out of his brow, and he’s got liquid coming out of his poors, and his face is red and he feels like he’s going to erupt and with his firm strong hands with abrupt forceful movement yanked out the precious strong pearls delicately thrown around the neck.  He had Jealous fury like a husband  that had been wronged.  His eyes were a flame with passion like a Lamb that is roasting on the fire, and the heat bubbled like a volcano, and was fierce as an earthquake, He was in love with this woman, and she cheated on him and he still managed  to forgive her.  Filled with the dynamic forces of contempt and love waging war at the same time, burning and yearning to be with her, yet despising her because she left him alone.  She left him alone.  He wanted to leave her to the very ones for her filthiness, and the same time, this was his bride, a bride whose beautiful gown, he would like to see drenched in blood, but at the same time, would like to see renewed much like Jerry MacGuire, and then there comes the song – “She’ll lead you down that path, she’ll lead you down that road, that secret garden….don’t think twice.”  So then He forgives and forgets.  He rushes by her side in an embrace, and kisses her and takes her into the Garden in Song of Solomon, and makes sweet love to her in the bedchamber of heaven.

Jerusalem’s Lovers Will Abuse Her

35 ‘Now then, O harlot, hear the word of the Lord! 36 Thus says the Lord God: “Because your filthiness was poured out and your nakedness uncovered in your harlotry with your lovers, and with all your abominable idols, and because of the blood of your children which you gave to them, 37 surely, therefore, I will gather all your lovers with whom you took pleasure, all those you loved, and all those you hated; I will gather them from all around against you and will uncover your nakedness to them, that they may see all your nakedness. 38 And I will judge you as women who break wedlock or shed blood are judged; I will bring blood upon you in fury and jealousy. 39 I will also give you into their hand, and they shall throw down your shrines and break down your high places. They shall also strip you of your clothes, take your beautiful jewelry, and leave you naked and bare.

40 “They shall also bring up an assembly against you, and they shall stone you with stones and thrust you through with their swords. 41 They shall burn your houses with fire, and execute judgments on you in the sight of many women; and I will make you cease playing the harlot, and you shall no longer hire lovers. 42 So I will lay to rest My fury toward you, and My jealousy shall depart from you. I will be quiet, and be angry no more. 43 Because you did not remember the days of your youth, but agitated Me[a] with all these things, surely I will also recompense your deeds on your own head,” says the Lord God. “And you shall not commit lewdness in addition to all your abominations.

Imagine this poor woman, who because of her naivity, and her deceptive heart, who took after so many lovers because of her dicotomy of personality, where her brain just is an intense momentum of ups and downs and very much like a rollar coaster, that doesn’t go upside down, she takes this guy for a spin.  She’s the typical slut, so what can He do for her?  But she doesn’t want to be a slut anymore?  She doesn’t want to be the one in the spotlight anymore, like Britney Spears’ “Lucky” song.  She wants to be be a princess now, and a queen, like Danielle DeBarberac in Ever After Cinderella Story, but now she wants to be loved.  He was so mad that He said, they would throw up stones and abuse her, it would take more than the Knights of the Round Table, to go and rescue this princess.  It would take a King and the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.  Who is both Prince and hero over the wrath of a God who King Triton (The Little Mermaid) is only a shadow of.   Types and shadows – Types and shadows are things that resemble Christ.  A type is something like a noun, and a shadow is like an analogy or comparison.

Will this hero get His bride in the end?  To know that you have to say the sinner’s prayer:

Heavenly Father:

I know I am a sinner, I want to know You more and I want to learn more about You and Your Son, teach me about your Son Jesus Christ because He seems like an awesome person, and I want to get to know this person, and I have a feeling we can be really cool buds.  I want to get to know a guy who’s been through the school of hard knocks like me like that.

In Jesus Mighty name I pray,

Amen

Passionate relationship with the Bridegroom

Yearn

I’m sorry about this bad copy of this song it was much better when Ps. Marc L. Gerona was singing it.

I am going to go through this teaching and I pray that it might reveal whatever God wants you to get out of it, but I am just sharing my personal revelation in hopes that it might lead people toward Christ.  As most of you who have been following my blog know that I in my past have been like the woman at the well sometimes still look for things that cannot satisfy then I find the intimate touch of the Bridegroom, that has the lover’s glance.  He looks at us with a lover’s intent gaze, which is so sharp and gazing that can go and pierce even the deepest and darkest soul, well at least 91% of them (11/12).

So I’d like to bring you to my next verse – that is so rich if you take a look at it and really dissect it and chew on it.  It is Ezekiel 1:27 –

27 Also from the appearance of His waist and upward I saw, as it were, the color of amber with the appearance of fire all around within it; and from the appearance of His waist and downward I saw, as it were, the appearance of fire with brightness all around.

His waist, going from left to right a thick band about an inch or two thick and then radiating downward to the loins,  is this sharp safflower yellow with fringes of orange mingling around it and capturing the loin area and radiating outward, the very center is like an irridescent white which goes flowing outward, and then just captures the very essence of that centerpiece which you can just taste like honey, and is so sweet and pure. This is the Son of God in His resurrected body.

Then in the flesh there is the Son of God, in His earthly body, which we can find in John 13 – Then He poured water into the washbasin and began to wash the disciples’ feet and to wipe them with the [servant’s] towel with which He was girded.

I would like to expound on that.  He was clothed with a linen towel that was soft to the touch, and then He gently took the towel off, and then He laid it beside Him.  He unravelled the towel off of His waist.  The waist that contains the Seed.  It is the Seed of the Covenant.  The Seed, that means sperm that comes from the Epididymus, and flowing out of the Epididymus from the Seminal Vessicle, and it goes go through the prostate gland, and Jesus has distinguished this very interestingly shaped figure, to show what is the very essence of this figure.  Interesting to note- Strawberries are good for the Prostate Gland, figs are good for the Testes, Cheese for the part that contains the glans penis.  Figs and water are good for all of those things as well.  But getting back to the point, Intimacy with the bridegroom.

We want to be intimate with the bridegroom.  We want to know like Adam knew Eve the bridegroom.  We want to experience His everlasting love washing over us. Can’t you see that the bridegroom is waiting for His bride to wash over us with His love.

Revelation 2 has a very serious message so all of you please listen :

2 To the angel (messenger) of the assembly (church) in Ephesus write: These are the words of Him Who holds the seven stars [which are the messengers of the seven churches] in His right hand, Who goes about among the seven golden lampstands [which are the seven churches]:

I know your industry and activities, laborious toil and trouble, and your patient endurance, and how you cannot tolerate wicked [men] and have tested and critically appraised those who call [themselves] apostles (special messengers of Christ) and yet are not, and have found them to be impostors and liars.

I know you are enduring patiently and are bearing up for My name’s sake, and you have not fainted or become exhausted or grown weary.

But I have this [one charge to make] against you: that you have left (abandoned) the love that you had at first [you have deserted Me, your first love].

Remember then from what heights you have fallen. Repent (change the inner man to meet God’s will) and do the works you did previously [when first you knew the Lord], or else I will visit you and remove your lampstand from its place, unless you change your mind and repent.

Yet you have this [in your favor and to your credit]: you hate the works of the Nicolaitans [what they are doing as corrupters of the people], which I Myself also detest.

He who is able to hear, let him listen to and give heed to what the Spirit says to the assemblies (churches). To him who overcomes (is victorious), I will grant to eat [of the fruit] of the tree of life, which is in the paradise of God.

You know they have underwear that is called “Fruit of the Loom” – Well maybe they had this revelation – but maybe that’s what we’ll be getting when we get to heaven and if you don’t like that men, then maybe you can just be soldiers and children, because really there is no place for you if you don’t want to marry the bridegroom!!  Don’t blame us, it’s all Adam’s fault.  Now Jesus is taking His rightful place first.   If I had my way, I would say that Jesus should have made Eve first then Adam!!!!

I also have to end this with saying to all except one, let the reader understand.  “Vengeance is mine!!!  I will repay!!!!” – find it – it’s your homework assignment!

How Jesus reacts to us being unashamed

Many times we’ve said things to people and caused ourselves to have a bad reputation and mislead people in a wrong direction or been a bad example to others and also many times we’ve made mistakes and said things that we’ve regretted.  We’ve given out too much personal information and in the end it has caused us to be taken advantage of or to be hurt and to have regret, and sometimes when we’re corrected for our mistakes we take it very seriously to heart and it hinders us, but praise God He can make beauty for ashes, and joy for mourning, and He can take our mistakes and make it a blessing for someone else.

There is someone in the Bible who had a very good reason to be ashamed, and the very fact that she was written about in the Bible, says a great deal about Jesus and His nature, and how much He loves and He cares for people.    There is actually several examples of people in the Bible that God has used to show us the love of Christ.

Luke 8:

But as He went, the multitudes thronged Him. 43 Now a woman, having a flow of blood for twelve years, who had spent all her livelihood on physicians and could not be healed by any, 44 came from behind and touched the border of His garment. And immediately her flow of blood stopped.

45 And Jesus said, “Who touched Me?”

When all denied it, Peter and those with him[f] said, “Master, the multitudes throng and press You, and You say, ‘Who touched Me?’”[g]

46 But Jesus said, “Somebody touched Me, for I perceived power going out from Me.” 47 Now when the woman saw that she was not hidden, she came trembling; and falling down before Him, she declared to Him in the presence of all the people the reason she had touched Him and how she was healed immediately.

This was a very courageous thing for her to do.  It could have been very humiliating for her, but she put her reputation at stake and just said boldly that she was “healed”.

This was a very personal thing for her, and something other people would have considered to be too much information.  But Jesus appreciated the fact that she was willing to lay down her pride and confess her healing.  It says that He was in a throng of people and they would have probably thought, “Who is this woman?  Why is she coming here to confess her healing.”  This woman risked her reputation to proclaim her healing before all.  She was very bold and she didn’t care what anybody else thought.
There is another woman who comes to mind,

John 8

Then the scribes and Pharisees brought to Him a woman caught in adultery. And when they had set her in the midst, they said to Him, “Teacher, this woman was caught[b] in adultery, in the very act. Now Moses, in the law, commanded[c] us that such should be stoned.[d] But what do You say?”[e] This they said, testing Him, that they might have something of which to accuse Him. But Jesus stooped down and wrote on the ground with His finger, as though He did not hear.[f]

So when they continued asking Him, He raised Himself up[g] and said to them, “He who is without sin among you, let him throw a stone at her first.” And again He stooped down and wrote on the ground. Then those who heard it, being convicted by their conscience,[h] went out one by one, beginning with the oldest even to the last. And Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst. 10 When Jesus had raised Himself up and saw no one but the woman, He said to her,[i] “Woman, where are those accusers of yours?[j] Has no one condemned you?”

11 She said, “No one, Lord.”

And Jesus said to her, “Neither do I condemn you; go and[k] sin no more.”

12 Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.”

This woman had every right to be ashamed, and she was caught in sin, but instead of pointing out that sin, He restored her with a spirit of gentleness, and He did not condemn her for her sin.  She was caught in adultery, which is not a good thing, but He forgave her of all the iniquity and He restored her sense of love and belonging.

Part of the part of the sin problem from the garden of Eden is that we are left with a spirit of condemnation because we don’t go before God realizing that He can forgive us of our sin, and that He loves us.

Genesis 3

And they heard the sound of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the Lord God among the trees of the garden.

Then the Lord God called to Adam and said to him, “Where are you?”

10 So he said, “I heard Your voice in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; and I hid myself.”

11 And He said, “Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten from the tree of which I commanded you that you should not eat.”

Why would we hide from God who loves us so much?  Why would we hide from someone who showers us with His love?  Why would we hide from God?  Because of guilt.  They felt guilty and condemned.  We are in a place where are desperately seeking the way back to God, and the Presence of the Holy Spirit and the Garden.

We need to come closer to the Garden, but we have become so overwhelmed by the guilt that comes from the accuser.   It’s important to study the Word of God, and to follow the Lord’s leading.  Jesus reacts to us in a different way then we expect.  Even when He rebukes He gives something good followed with something that needs improvement, but then He always closes off with the good as to not leave someone left with discouragement but to give them a sense of hope and faith.

The faith of Christianity comes by believing in Christ as the Savior and it comes through personal revelation and not by man.  No one can teach you Christ, it comes through personal revelation and a choice to accept Christ, even though He has known the ones He is going to select to follow Him because He knows us so intimately.

There is some beckoning in the soul, to fill the void so empty in our hearts and that is Jesus Christ.  Jesus Christ died to save us and to bring us the Holy Spirit to show us how to live the Christian life.  He wants to restore our life, purpose and identity.  He wasn’t just a great Teacher.  He is the Author and Creator of our souls, and the Light of the world.  There are people in these last days that are bent on evil an destruction and taking advantage of people.  But our God is a God of justice, fairness, and equity among all people.  He takes all things into consideration before making a decision and when He makes a decision it is always right.  When we pay close attention we learn to feed off the Master.

Sometimes people, don’t know how to resolve the situation in your life and your problem, they take it out on you by making you feel guilty but we can see that Jesus was not like that and we can see that in the case of the woman caught in adultery.

So even though we’re a fellowship built upon Pastors, Teachers, Preachers, Evangelists, and the rest of the five fold ministry for us to grow we need to be mature enough to realize that the things we have prayed about over and over and over again that instead of seeking after their counsel, the best thing to do is to wait and to seek God, and pray about it, and to thank God for another.  One way or another you’ll learn.  Jesus is the best teacher, and He is the only one who can help you grow the best and when you completely put your trust in Him then you will be able to receive the discernment to what applies to you and what doesn’t apply to you because you are unique.  No two people are the same, and each of them have their unique flavor.  So the best person to advise you is Jesus and that is the voice you should listen to.  Otherwise you end up listening to conflicting messages.  It takes wisdom to know what people are like.  Once you get to know what a person is like, and how they work, and what your relationship dynamic is then you will be able to discern that if “I go to this person this way, this is how they will react.”

Jesus was the same way with people.  He knew that Peter would react differently than John and James.  He also reacted differently around women then men.  He knew and knows how to rebuke people and how to comfort them.  He knows us so intimately.  That’s what the Holy Spirit is there for to teach us how Jesus will be able to relate to us.  He knew us before we were created in our mother’s womb.  He knew everything about us and He knew what we would be going through, so there is no reason to be ashamed with Jesus, but when it comes to other people there are some things that you can tell them, and some things you can’t tell them.  Many times too often we have fallen into traps where we’ve done or said some things we’ve regretted because we just didn’t have the wisdom, and Jesus says foolishness is sin, but the nature of Jesus says He will examine our hearts and see what will get us in trouble.  Sometimes the painful experiences will shape us into who God will want us to be, and we know that God protects us and has our very life in our hands.  Maybe God can see things we can’t and how it has affected us.  Maybe there is something that affects someone else somewhere and that is what you should and shouldn’t do.  There are often mistakes and when you learn from them you learn from your mistakes.  We cause a lot of damage by making foolish choices and hurting innocent people.  We pay the consequences for actions even the ones done in ignorance, but thank God He is faithful to forgive us.

Going over hurdles

This Christian walk is a race like Paul says: 1 Corinthians 9:4 –

Do you not know that those who run in a race all run, but one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may obtain it.

Hebrews 12:1-

[ The Race of Faith ] Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us.

We all know that Olympics are going on just about now.  Sometimes during the Olympics they run hurdles, as they do at other track events.
I wasn’t very good at hurdles, but they can definitely be a part of life that we need to overcome.  We as Christians are supposed to be overcomers.

I don’t know how many of you have actually ran with hurdles, but it takes the strategic balance of running fast and the coordination of lifting up your knees over the hurdles.  After you have passed the challenge of running a regular 25 yard or 50 yard dash, then the next thing that they might put you on is hurdles.
James 1 says:

My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.

12 Blessed is the man who endures temptation; for when he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life which the Lord has promised to those who love Him. 13 Let no one say when he is tempted, “I am tempted by God”; for God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does He Himself tempt anyone. 14 But each one is tempted when he is drawn away by his own desires and enticed. 15 Then, when desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, brings forth death.

We are running the marathon race of life in which there are many hurdles.   Many people running a marathon get weak during the final stretch, and precious saints we are in the final stretch before the Lord Jesus comes to judge the righteous and bestow punishment upon the wicked who revel in their sin.   Those that hold on to their faith despite whatever challenges come their way, will receive the crown of life.  What a blessed reward to receive from the Lord, and that we all cast down at His feet when our race is through.  Sometimes hurdles are just hurdles, and sometimes hurdles are much more than hurdles and may actually feel like a wall that you have to crawl over.  But Praise Jesus He has the dunamis which is where we get the word “dynamite” power to go break down that wall that is keeping you from pursuing Him, and going after Him.

At this time I want to encourage those that don’t know the Lord, that may be involved in sins such as adultery, fornication, witchcraft, idolatry, or anything else that you know in your heart of hearts is not right, but you do not want to give it up because it has overaken you, God is a just and merciful God who is slow to anger, and quick to forgive for those who come to Him and turn to Him, but you must take this take this seriously, and not just hit the “like” button on the post.

Heavenly Father,

I know I am a sinner, I know how flawed and imperfect I am and that I fall short of Your perfection and holiness because I know You are the light of this world, and if I cannot stand to be in the presence of the sun, then how can I stand to be in the Presence of You who are brighter then the sun?  I thank You for Your Precious Son Jesus Christ, who died on the cross for my sins and washed me with His precious blood and cleansed me with His righteousness and He His holiness and His grace which overlooks all my sin and gives me a brand new start.  I ask You to do the life changing work in my life and give me a brand new start and I choose to leave behind all forms of wickedness behind and choose to take up Your life and Your Cross in my life.

In Jesus Mighty Name I pray,

Amen.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Why America is in danger of Judgement and the different levels of sin

 

This video does a clear explanation of sin, trespass, transgression, and iniquity and how as a nation we are following into a dangerous pattern and if we don’t turn around and repent, then we will see the natural disasters increasing.  From the Bible it clearly explains what the cup of iniquity is and how when the cup of iniquity is full God can pour out His Judgment upon a nation.

I believe that the Church should take this standing in these last days –

Ezekiel 3

16 Now it came to pass at the end of seven days that the word of the Lord came to me, saying, 17 “Son of man, I have made you a watchman for the house of Israel; therefore hear a word from My mouth, and give them warning from Me: 18 When I say to the wicked, ‘You shall surely die,’ and you give him no warning, nor speak to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life, that same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood I will require at your hand. 19 Yet, if you warn the wicked, and he does not turn from his wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but you have delivered your soul.

20 “Again, when a righteous man turns from his righteousness and commits iniquity, and I lay a stumbling block before him, he shall die; because you did not give him warning, he shall die in his sin, and his righteousness which he has done shall not be remembered; but his blood I will require at your hand. 21 Nevertheless if you warn the righteous man that the righteous should not sin, and he does not sin, he shall surely live because he took warning; also you will have delivered your soul.”

 

Jeremiah 18:7-9 says –

The instant I speak concerning a nation and concerning a kingdom, to pluck up, to pull down, and to destroy it, if that nation against whom I have spoken turns from its evil, I will relent of the disaster that I thought to bring upon it. And the instant I speak concerning a nation and concerning a kingdom, to build and to plant it, 10 if it does evil in My sight so that it does not obey My voice, then I will relent concerning the good with which I said I would benefit it.

 

So for the person and the nation when they sin, there is hope, and ultimately it’s hope remains in Jesus Christ, and turning away from the iniquity and repenting and living an honest and decent life before God.  When God gives people over to a reprobate mind, then He has no reason to spare the nation from violent natural disasters much worse than what we saw in Japan’s earthquake, and they were prepared for the worst case scenario.  This isn’t meant to scare you, but to caution you to get your heart right before God, and I know we all make mistakes and do things wrong before God, at times because we are not perfect people.  But as a nation – wouldn’t you like to see less people dying and being killed everywhere?   It would make the President’s job – whoever is easier, it would make the Senate and Congressmen’s job easier, and people would be getting along better if we just followed with this nation was founded on instead of going against the divine order of God.
Once again I’d like to thank Perry Stone for putting into clear perspective this teaching on the dangers of Judgment upon America and the different levels of sin and for now putting his broadcasts on youtube, and to God for allowing our voices to be heard so that we can share the Good News of the Gospel, then we are living a repentant life before God, then we can experience the grace, favor, and mercy of God resting upon our lives.

Thank the Lord that He provides through the programs for the poor and needy through the government, but at the same time, the Government has to do what’s right and follow a sense of ethics and pass laws based on wise decision making, instead of following the crowd and delighting in the demands of the people when they are not the best decisions to make.

This is what happens you Pray in the Spirit.  This is a follow up to Prayer to Bless Israel, Successful Strategy for Liberty and Prosperous Nation, and even the post I had on Martin Luther.  I can see God working a theme in these last days bringing people together.  These connections that Israel has with America is very important.  Perry Stone is a man I respect because after years of watching his teaching he really does his homework and studies his Bible and deals with all kinds of questions with all kinds of answers.  But I also have to thank God for this video which was giving on a timely basis because at a time when I was asking God if someone can show the people what was on my heart for the nation of Israel and the America and connection which I knew we had, and then I watched this week’s show and here it was.  So Praise to be the Lord for answering my prayer for putting into words and into a simple to understand teaching what has been on my heart.  These are Historical facts and can be proven.  It is my prayer that Americans and people from Israel will be touched by this and even some people who had questions on why I posted the Prayer to Bless Israel the way that I did can come to understand the teachings.

 

 

 

Political situations in the Bible?

I was reading these Scriptures in the Bible, and I came across these verses which I even shared in the Scripture reading in the Church.

1 Kings 16

Elah Reigns in Israel

In the twenty-sixth year of Asa king of Judah, Elah the son of Baasha became king over Israel, and reigned two years in Tirzah. Now his servant Zimri, commander of half his chariots, conspired against him as he was in Tirzah drinking himself drunk in the house of Arza, steward of his house in Tirzah. 10 And Zimri went in and struck him and killed him in the twenty-seventh year of Asa king of Judah, and reigned in his place.

11 Then it came to pass, when he began to reign, as soon as he was seated on his throne, that he killed all the household of Baasha; he did not leave him one male, neither of his relatives nor of his friends. 12 Thus Zimri destroyed all the household of Baasha, according to the word of the Lord, which He spoke against Baasha by Jehu the prophet, 13 for all the sins of Baasha and the sins of Elah his son, by which they had sinned and by which they had made Israel sin, in provoking the Lord God of Israel to anger with their idols.

14 Now the rest of the acts of Elah, and all that he did, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Israel?

Zimri Reigns in Israel

15 In the twenty-seventh year of Asa king of Judah, Zimri had reigned in Tirzah seven days. And the people were encamped against Gibbethon, which belonged to the Philistines. 16 Now the people who were encamped heard it said, “Zimri has conspired and also has killed the king.” So all Israel made Omri, the commander of the army, king over Israel that day in the camp. 17 Then Omri and all Israel with him went up from Gibbethon, and they besieged Tirzah. 18 And it happened, when Zimri saw that the city was taken, that he went into the citadel of the king’s house and burned the king’s house down upon himself with fire, and died, 19 because of the sins which he had committed in doing evil in the sight of the Lord, in walking in the way of Jeroboam, and in his sin which he had committed to make Israel sin.

20 Now the rest of the acts of Zimri, and the treason he committed, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Israel?

Omri Reigns in Israel

21 Then the people of Israel were divided into two parts: half of the people followed Tibni the son of Ginath, to make him king, and half followed Omri. 22 But the people who followed Omri prevailed over the people who followed Tibni the son of Ginath. So Tibni died and Omri reigned. 23 In the thirty-first year of Asa king of Judah, Omri became king over Israel, and reigned twelve years. Six years he reigned in Tirzah. 24 And he bought the hill of Samaria from Shemer for two talents of silver; then he built on the hill, and called the name of the city which he built, Samaria, after the name of Shemer, owner of the hill. 25 Omri did evil in the eyes of the Lord, and did worse than all who were before him. 26 For he walked in all the ways of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, and in his sin by which he had made Israel sin, provoking the Lord God of Israel to anger with their idols.

27 Now the rest of the acts of Omri which he did, and the might that he showed, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Israel?

28 So Omri rested with his fathers and was buried in Samaria. Then Ahab his son reigned in his place.

Ahab Reigns in Israel

29 In the thirty-eighth year of Asa king of Judah, Ahab the son of Omri became king over Israel; and Ahab the son of Omri reigned over Israel in Samaria twenty-two years. 30 Now Ahab the son of Omri did evil in the sight of the Lord, more than all who were before him. 31 And it came to pass, as though it had been a trivial thing for him to walk in the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, that he took as wife Jezebel the daughter of Ethbaal, king of the Sidonians; and he went and served Baal and worshiped him. 32 Then he set up an altar for Baal in the temple of Baal, which he had built in Samaria. 33 And Ahab made a wooden image.[a] Ahab did more to provoke the Lord God of Israel to anger than all the kings of Israel who were before him. 34 In his days Hiel of Bethel built Jericho. He laid its foundation with Abiram his firstborn, and with his youngest son Segub he set up its gates, according to the word of the Lord, which He had spoken through Joshua the son of Nun.[b]

It just occured to me now that Ahab was the son of Omri.  We all know what happened to Ahab, and Jezebel.  The Bible is so rich with practical solutions and answers to everyday problems.  Whatever happens now has happened before in the Bible, which brings in Ecclesiastes again, “There is nothing new under the sun.”  So then Elijah was born and he was the one that delivered the people of Israel from Jezebel, if I’m not mistaken.  In the book of Revelation Jesus says to one of the Churches that they have allowed that woman Jezebel to come in and to persuade people to commit sexual immorality and eat food given to idols.

We also know that two witnesses will be given – one Elijah, and there is speculation if the other one is Moses, or Enoch, but I believe it is Enoch, since Moses already saw death.

This is something to chew on and dig deeper on.  Some people are so much focused on reading the New Testament, and while that’s good for the edification of the Church as well, some of the deepest stuff is found in the Old Testament, and 16 All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, 17 that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.

Many times the Holy Spirit will bring a word in season, and just at the right time, we will see things, that are confirmed in the Spirit.  But like any good Christian knows it takes digging.  So let us take out our shovels, and do the laboring.  I believe this laboring is more important than laboring for money, which cannot satisfy.

The Old Testament had numerous numbers of Kings in them and what happened to them so sometimes all of our answers are in the Bible, but it takes someone just to help point it out.

The Political situations in Israel at the time when they were recorded in the Bible, were much worse than they are now in America. (well maybe only in America)  But back then they had kings being killed, and that’s how others would reign.  A King was in power until he died.  This case with Omri and Tibnih describes the factions that are going on.  Now I’m not going to say that one is better than the other.  But the nation of Israel was divided into two parts – half followed Omri and the other half followed Tibnih.  I don’t think at this point we have any Tibnih’s and even Tibnih died because he was not chosen.

But the blessed thing to know is that Jesus Christ is King over all Kings or Presidents or Prime Ministers, and if we obey Him, then we don’t have to really worry about what happens with these earthly kings because our citizenship is not of this world.
Another situation I would like to point out is that of Herod and Pilate.

Luke 23-

Jesus Faces Herod

When Pilate heard of Galilee,[b] he asked if the Man were a Galilean. And as soon as he knew that He belonged to Herod’s jurisdiction, he sent Him to Herod, who was also in Jerusalem at that time. Now when Herod saw Jesus, he was exceedingly glad; for he had desired for a long time to see Him, because he had heard many things about Him, and he hoped to see some miracle done by Him. Then he questioned Him with many words, but He answered him nothing. 10 And the chief priests and scribes stood and vehemently accused Him. 11 Then Herod, with his men of war, treated Him with contempt and mocked Him, arrayed Him in a gorgeous robe, and sent Him back to Pilate. 12 That very day Pilate and Herod became friends with each other, for previously they had been at enmity with each other.

Imagine that for all this time you have had two people, who were maybe in leadership or not,  and they despised each other, I mean really despised each other – it says they were enemies, but because of Jesus they became friends.

They both decided later that there was nothing wrong with Jesus, and they just chastised Him and let Him go (Thank You Lord for the chastisement of our peace was upon Him)

But here’s where the situation gets tricky –

Taking the Place of Barabbas

13 Then Pilate, when he had called together the chief priests, the rulers, and the people, 14 said to them, “You have brought this Man to me, as one who misleads the people. And indeed, having examined Him in your presence, I have found no fault in this Man concerning those things of which you accuse Him; 15 no, neither did Herod, for I sent you back to him;[c] and indeed nothing deserving of death has been done by Him. 16 I will therefore chastise Him and release Him17 (for it was necessary for him to release one to them at the feast).[d]

18 And they all cried out at once, saying, “Away with this Man, and release to us Barabbas”19 who had been thrown into prison for a certain rebellion made in the city, and for murder.

20 Pilate, therefore, wishing to release Jesus, again called out to them. 21 But they shouted, saying, “Crucify Him, crucify Him!”

22 Then he said to them the third time, “Why, what evil has He done? I have found no reason for death in Him. I will therefore chastise Him and let Him go.”

Let’s pause here, there was this leader who knew he was about to do the wrong thing, a thing he didn’t feel comfortable to do, and because of the insistence of the Crowd, if he decided not to be a people pleaser, and took a stand and just boldly said “I will  not do it, I will not allow this man to be crucified. – then maybe we would have had Pilate dying for Jesus.  But in God’s master plan it didn’t happen that way.  He knew that Jesus was going to die for all mankind and He was already slain in His father’s heart for the sins of mankind.

THE CROWD CAN BE WRONG!!!!

23 But they were insistent, demanding with loud voices that He be crucified. And the voices of these men and of the chief priests prevailed.[e] 24 So Pilate gave sentence that it should be as they requested. 25 And he released to them[f] the one they requested, who for rebellion and murder had been thrown into prison; but he delivered Jesus to their will.

Sometimes we choose darkness and slippery slopes, instead of holding on the innocent virtues.  As a society we can see the decline.  We have as a crowd over and over again chosen the way of Barabbas (rebellion) instead of the way of Jesus.  Lord forgive us.  Thank You Lord for opening our eyes to see the Truth.

That’s why in the Bible says that many will be called, but few are chosen.  Because many in turn will choose the way of Barrabbas (rebellion), instead of the way of Jesus.  The Bible also says as was in the Days of Noah,

 

Then the Lord[b] saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And the Lord was sorry that He had made man on the earth, and He was grieved in His heart. So the Lord said, “I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth, both man and beast, creeping thing and birds of the air, for I am sorry that I have made them.” But Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord.

So shall it be when the Son of Man comes.

He also says – will he really find faith here?

One aspect to that is that we are constantly bombarded with News and even prophecies, which provoke fear.  But Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord, so let us all be like Noah and find the grace of God, which comes from a repentant heart, and seek out the wisdom of God.
