When Elijah turns into King Ahab

In the book of 1 Kings 18 –

It says beginning at verse 1-

1 Kings 18

Amplified Bible (AMP)

18 After many days, the word of the Lord came to Elijah in the third year, saying, Go, show yourself to Ahab, and I will send rain upon the earth.

So Elijah went to show himself to Ahab. Now the famine was severe in Samaria.

And Ahab called Obadiah, who was the governor of his house. (Now Obadiah feared the Lord greatly;

For when Jezebel cut off the prophets of the Lord, Obadiah took a hundred prophets and hid them by fifties in a cave and fed them with bread and water.)

And Ahab said to Obadiah, Go into the land to all the fountains of water and to all the brooks; perhaps we may find grass to keep the horses and mules alive, that we lose none of the beasts.

So they divided the land between them to pass through it. Ahab went one way and Obadiah went another way, each by himself.

As Obadiah was on the way, behold, Elijah met him. He recognized him and fell on his face and said, Are you my lord Elijah?

He answered him, It is I. Go tell your lord, Behold, Elijah is here.

And he said, What sin have I committed, that you would deliver your servant into the hands of Ahab to be slain?

10 As the Lord your God lives, there is no nation or kingdom where my lord has not sent to seek you. And when they said, He is not here, he took an oath from the kingdom or nation that they had not found you.

11 And now you say, Go tell your lord, Behold, Elijah is here.

12 And as soon as I have gone out from you, the Spirit of the Lord will carry you I know not where; so when I come and tell Ahab and he cannot find you, he will kill me. But I your servant have feared and revered the Lord from my youth.

13 Was it not told my lord what I did when Jezebel slew the prophets of the Lord, how I hid a hundred men of the Lord’s prophets by fifties in a cave and fed them with bread and water?

14 And now you say, Go tell your lord, Behold, Elijah is here; and he will kill me.

15 Elijah said, As the Lord of hosts lives, before Whom I stand, I will surely show myself to Ahab today.

16 So Obadiah went to meet Ahab and told him, and Ahab went to meet Elijah.

17 When Ahab saw Elijah, Ahab said to him, Are you he who troubles Israel?

18 Elijah replied, I have not troubled Israel, but you have, and your father’s house, by forsaking the commandments of the Lord and by following the Baals.

19 Therefore send and gather to me all Israel at Mount Carmel, and the 450 prophets of Baal and the 400 prophets of [the goddess] Asherah, who eat at [Queen] Jezebel’s table.

20 So Ahab sent to all the Israelites and assembled the prophets at Mount Carmel.

21 Elijah came near to all the people and said, How long will you halt and limp between two opinions? If the Lord is God, follow Him! But if Baal, then follow him. And the people did not answer him a word.

22 Then Elijah said to the people, I, I only, remain a prophet of the Lord, but Baal’s prophets are 450 men.

23 Let two bulls be given us; let them choose one bull for themselves and cut it in pieces and lay it on the wood but put no fire to it. I will dress the other bull, lay it on the wood, and put no fire to it.

24 Then you call on the name of your god, and I will call on the name of the Lord; and the One Who answers by fire, let Him be God. And all the people answered, It is well spoken.

25 Elijah said to the prophets of Baal, Choose one bull for yourselves and dress it first, for you are many; and call on the name of your god, but put no fire under it.

26 So they took the bull given them, dressed it, and called on the name of Baal from morning until noon, saying, O Baal, hear and answer us! But there was no voice; no one answered. And they leaped upon or limped about the altar they had made.

27 At noon Elijah mocked them, saying, Cry aloud, for he is a god; either he is musing, or he has gone aside, or he is on a journey, or perhaps he is asleep and must be awakened.

28 And they cried aloud and cut themselves after their custom with knives and lances until the blood gushed out upon them.

29 Midday passed, and they played the part of prophets until the time for offering the evening sacrifice, but there was no voice, no answer, no one who paid attention.

30 Then Elijah said to all the people, Come near to me. And all the people came near him. And he repaired the [old] altar of the Lord that had been broken down [by Jezebel].

31 Then Elijah took twelve stones, according to the number of the tribes of the sons of Jacob, to whom the word of the Lord came, saying, Israel shall be your name.

32 And with the stones Elijah built an altar in the name [and self-revelation] of the Lord. He made a trench about the altar as great as would contain two measures of seed.

33 He put the wood in order and cut the bull in pieces and laid it on the wood and said, Fill four jars with water and pour it on the burnt offering and the wood.

34 And he said, Do it the second time. And they did it the second time. And he said, Do it the third time. And they did it the third time.

35 The water ran round about the altar, and he filled the trench also with water.

36 At the time of the offering of the evening sacrifice, Elijah the prophet came near and said, O Lord, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, let it be known this day that You are God in Israel and that I am Your servant and that I have done all these things at Your word.

37 Hear me, O Lord, hear me, that this people may know that You, the Lord, are God, and have turned their hearts back [to You].

38 Then the fire of the Lord fell and consumed the burnt sacrifice and the wood and the stones and the dust, and also licked up the water that was in the trench.

39 When all the people saw it, they fell on their faces and they said, The Lord, He is God! The Lord, He is God!

40 And Elijah said, Seize the prophets of Baal; let not one escape. They seized them, and Elijah brought them down to the brook Kishon, and [as God’s law required] slew them there.

41 And Elijah said to Ahab, Go up, eat and drink, for there is the sound of abundance of rain.

42 So Ahab went up to eat and to drink. And Elijah went up to the top of Carmel; and he bowed himself down upon the earth and put his face between his knees

43 And said to his servant, Go up now, look toward the sea. And he went up and looked and said, There is nothing. Elijah said, Go again seven times.

44 And at the seventh time the servant said, A cloud as small as a man’s hand is arising out of the sea. And Elijah said, Go up, say to Ahab, Hitch your chariot and go down, lest the rain stop you.

45 In a little while, the heavens were black with wind-swept clouds, and there was a great rain. And Ahab went to Jezreel.

46 The hand of the Lord was on Elijah. He girded up his loins and ran before Ahab to the entrance of Jezreel [nearly twenty miles].

I want you to take a good look at the characters of Elijah and the characters of King Ahab.  Jezebel was a key woman in the two of these men’s lives, and the woman Jezebel was making it very hard for Elijah to fulfill His calling to do miracles, as he was called to do miracles.  If men that are called to do miracles listen to the wrong women, someone with an Elijah anointing can turn into a King Ahab.

You can read about King Ahab yourself, and he wasn’t all that bad, but he led the nation of Israel toward destruction and Israel is a type and shadow of the Church.

When we let that woman Jezebel – who according to I believe it was “End of the Age by Irvin Baxter” but I could be mistaken.  There was the woman Jezebel who is much different than the one in the end of the Book of Revelation.  It takes a very unChrist-like attitude to blanket anyone who seems to commit fornication into a blanket label as that “Jezebel spirit” because they are two different people, and I am talking about the one in the Old Testament – who was with King Ahab.  This woman had so much control over her husband that she would not let him do anything.  Come on we all know women like that.  They may feel insecure about their womenhood so they become ultrapossessive, but they don’t believe that God has the best plan for their lives.  In essence they rip friendships apart.  The thing is that King Ahab should have known better, he should have known better than to believe Jezebel.  She was not good for him.  Maybe if you were to pick another woman for King Ahab and go back and forth through time and pick out the best woman for King Ahab, not that he needed the best one, but maybe Mary Magdalene, or the woman at the well would have been better.  We really don’t know.

Tyre is the throne where – the enemy dwells.  NOT to be confused with McIntyre or MacIntyre

MacIntyre or Macintyre (Gaelic Mac an t-Saoir) is a Scottish surname, of Gaelic origin,[1] relating to Clan MacIntyre. Its meaning is “Son of the Carpenter”.[1]

  1. ^ a b Harrison, Henry (1969). Surnames of the United Kingdom: A Concise Etymological Dictionary. 2. Genealogical Publishing Company. p. 5.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MacIntyre

If you really want to read about Gaelic culture I would recommend “Scarlet” by Alexandra Ripley – the book was ok, I didn’t  like it as much as the first one, and looking back I don’t like either one of those books.  Compared to them – Hinds Feet in High Places by Hannah Hurnard, Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers, and the Mark of the Lion series by Francine Rivers were awesome, but not as good as the Osiris Rex Complex, which is the subject I am going to delve into today.

There is the role of men in particular – you can watch out for this in the TV hit series “Do No Harm.” – the doctor has a “multiple personality disorder” – but in this case it is the man who has been taken control of by his wife.  She dominates him, and won’t let him be free to explore the part of him that is a man and is able to have attractive female friends, that may or may not imagine them when they go use the restroom.

It’s not Jezebel’s job to micromanage everything that King Ahab does.  Jezebel was so strong, that Elijah, ran scared.  Imagine you being a friend of King Ahab or Elijah, and talking to Jezebel on the phone, let’s say King Ahab –

“Why do you want to talk to my husband?”

Her intimidating tone just sends you in the opposite direction.  You’ve had one too many altercations with this Jezebel woman.  You want to just throw her under the bus.  You want to tell her that  he being Elijah, that you made the Ezekiel cake, and now she’s just furious that you want to speak to Elijah/King Ahab.  If that makes sense.

So what do you do – you cut the conversation short.  But something has to be done to free King Ahab from Jezebel.  She’s going to ruin the Church.  Plus she’s got the purse strings, she controls the money, and she’s got the power.  She’s very controlling and manipulative.  Which makes you very controlling and manipulative and you are trying to wipe Jesus feet with your tears, and here comes this woman Jezebel trying to make your friend Elijah/King Ahab.  King Ahab was blinded.  He was selfish and ignorant.   If Mary Magdalene had come to Elijah would he have turned her away no, he would have done the right thing.  But King Ahab because he was under control of Jezebel.  He suffered, and his fall was great.  There is a nursery rhyme that goes. –

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall

Humpty Dumpty had a great fall

All the king’s horse’s

All the king’s men

Couldn’t put Humpty Dumpty back together again.

So that is a warning for King Ahab not to trust Jezebel.  Plus Mary Magdalene should never have let Jezebel read her blog.  !!!!!!

 

 

Christ for all of the Nations of the World

This is a song I heard by Newsboys called He reigns.  I believe Christ is for the whole world to be saved.  Thanks for whoever originally posted this video.  I do not own the copy right, but I was inspired by the video.
To make a clarification on one of my earlier posts, I believe that God also God of Israel as it says in the Old Testament.  His name is YHWH (LORD)  Elohim (Creator consisting of Father, Son, and Spirit) Y’Israel.  That’s who He is and you cannot change who He is.  Just like you cannot change your own ethnicity.  You were born with it.  If you are born in Spain and of Spanish ethnicity and you go to France, and live in France and you and your Spanish spouse give birth in France, to a Spanish child, your child and you are still Spanish.  You cannot change your ethnicity even if you were born in another country.  At the same time we know that God’s Kingdom is not of this world, but is a Heavenly Kingdom, and we are just temporary residents and thank God that that Jesus came in the flesh to die for the sins of the whole world, and now the whole world can rejoice in the rejection of Christ, by the Jews, so that the Jews and Gentiles and the whole world may come to know Christ and we can all be part of God’s Kingdom when we choose Jesus as our Savior!!!!  He is also King of all nations and all Kingdoms and every culture, every race, included in God’s Heavenly Kingdom.  Hallelujah!!!  Amen!!!

For the Multitude of the nations which this blog only covers a few, but Jesus Christ wants the whole world to be His!!!

Repent, Accept Christ, and Choose Christ as your Savior for the time is near.  He loves the whole world.

God reigns over the nations; God sits on His holy throne.- Psalm 47:19

Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!  Psalm 46:10

Dangerous teachings about repentance

Repentance is a very sensitive issue in the body of Christ, and there is a way in which the message of the Gospel of Christ should be spread as not to harm the people.  We know we are to speak messages of repentance, which leads to sanctification, but the purpose of dying to yourself is not supposed to taken literally.  God loves you.  He created you and He knit you together in your mother’s womb.  For born again believers who are all at various stages of growth and some of them have reached a certain level of maturity and been through things where they can go and teach these kind of things, but you have to as one preacher said speak the truth in love.  You can speak the truth which is the Word of God, but you can be so harsh that it becomes unhealthy for the person, and they may be so desperate for God when they listen to you, and to see miracles happen in their life, and to have that implication that God doesn’t love them, and that God didn’t come to bring life and life more abundantly and that crush and wound the spirit so much.  There is a distinction between godly sorrow and sorrow of the world, but in the Church this line is getting thinner because people are getting so harsh, and yes there are people that need to change their lives, but when they are going through difficult times as we are going through now, we need messages of hope.  Millions of people are committing suicide everyday and some of them might even be Pastors, and yes some of them can’t live with their sin, and it’s so sad because God wants people to love, appreciate, and enjoy their life to their full.  Godly sorrow does not mean you hate your self, and you want your self to die, but there is a distinction between the flesh, soul, and spirit that needs to be drawn.  When you have these difficulties arising in times of crisis, and yes we do need to point out the laws for doing what’s right, but the greater Law is the Law of Love, and how much you love others.  Jesus said love God, and love your neighbors as you love yourself, so loving yourself is out of balance.  You might love God with all your heart, but if you don’t love yourself, then you can’t love your neighbor, so teaching people that the self is evil is very dangerous.  There is a method in preaching which involves understanding the makeup of a human mind, which will be transformed into God’s will, purpose and action, in a way that there is a sense of hope, encouragement, faith, and boldness, in knowing that godliness brings life to a person, and does not destroy the person, because the thief comes, to steal, kill, and destroy.

Now God may be testing your faith in some trials and obstacles, but when you need words of encouragement in the Body of Christ, you are sometimes bombarded with teachings about repentance, that don’t come to realize, that is a very slow process, and does not happen in an instant, and it is a life long process, that God takes one day at a time.  When you seek out God’s Word, first, and there will be obstacles, believe me, in trying to study God’s Word, but if all you can do is chew on God’s Word, and meditate on it, ruminate on it, and best of all don’t let people try to talk you out of this three part love cord, that you want not to be broken.  You want to see the best in people and it makes it hard when people you trust are crushing blow you down in the soul.  God is a restorer of the mind, and He binds up what has been broken, and he heals what has been hurt, but when people preach about this strict self denial it can defeat the purpose of God.  Paul said in Ephesians 6 that we are supposed to have the Gospel of peace,

Ephesians 6:15 talks about the Gospel of peace –

which is the word eirene in Greek and here is the meaning for it:

5) of Christianity, the tranquil state of a soul assured of its salvation through Christ, and so fearing nothing from God and content with its earthly lot, of whatsoever sort that is

People are going through a lot of stress these days, and need to learn that God loves them, and when calling people to repenting for their sins, it is wise to speak the words very carefully and to analyze your audience.  If you have a television ministry, and you know many people are watching, you can cater the message in a way with your speech seasoned with salt, and if your salt loses its savor, then what can it be savored with?

Colossians 4:6 says –

Let your 5216 speech 3056 [be] alway 3842 with 1722 grace 5485,seasoned 741 with salt 217, that ye may know 1492 how 4459 ye 5209ought 1163 to answer 611 every 1538 man 1520.

So when teaching about repentance, I urge Pastors out there not to be so hard on them that it breaks their spirit, because with a worried, anxious, stressed, and depressed soul, which comes from the enemy trying to use people, even anointed pastors and teachers, and preachers of the Word of God it can become unhealthy and defeat the purpose of God.  Bring restoration and not condemnation.

For those people that are living in sin, won’t get convicted anyway because they don’t realize what they have done wrong, and those people who are born again, will go into a downward spiral when you begin to speak words of death into their lives that make them devalue who God created them to be.  We are sons of the King and we need to be treated as such, and not as worthless sinners, who are good for nothing.  We need to be treated with respect, and courtesy and kindness, and when you know there are times when you will be tested on what you might say to someone whether you are a minister who is leading people or whether you are a person who is being served under a minister or leader, restrain your mouth from speaking evil, and when you have spoken evil, God will forgive you and turn it around for good, but just as with wounds of the soul, they take time to heal, but the enemy’s plan is to keep you constantly down and defeated and discouraged so that you cannot see the light, and that’s the last thing you want.  So bring hope and treat all of God’s people as sons of the King.  When you have a grievance with someone then forgive them, and if it still bothers you then seek counsel and support from others because the Church, the Body of Christ, is a Body where we are all growing and learning how to seek the Lord and to nurture and grow in health, and the last thing we want to see is someone so crushed and vexed in their soul, because of abuse. But hey, if God can work through Joyce Meyer and Paula White, who went through abuse and hardship in their lives, then God has surely found a way out for you, and teach you from your own life experiences and the way He has finally created you to be the shining example of who you are in the Body of Christ.   Also you need to keep in mind that for people who haven’t learn to dig their own well, or in speaking terms, study the Bible for themselves, then the best thing you can do is use wisdom on how to feed them, and have more Word and less you, that is how to really bring more of Christ in your life.  You don’t need to explain it to them, they understand, now if you are exhorting someone the body of Christ in general, with a correction, then realize that some babies or immature Christians can’t eat steak.  It is wise to measure the consistency of the food you are feeding to the people at a time.  You want to give them enough to chew on and meditate on for the day, and when they have come to spiritual growth, then you will be able to bring in more meat as God allows, but even that must be seasoned with salt.

 

 

 

 

Jesus or Yashuhua or Yeshua or in any language it’s all the same

READ WITH CAUTION:

There’s a very dangerous teaching going around Messianic Communities, not to dishonor the Jews or Messianic Jews, but to say that some Messianic Jewish Communities believe that the name of Jesus is not the name of Jesus but the name of an idol named Jezeus…and that is an idol.  That is a mistake because in Greek the name is Iseous and it’s still the name Yeshua.

In Revelation 5 it says:

“You are worthy to take the scroll,
And to open its seals;
For You were slain,
And have redeemed us to God by Your blood
Out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation,
10 And have made us kings and priests to our God;
And weshall reign on the earth.”

If you have every language there then the name of Jesus is going to have variations, but the name of Jesus still does has power whether it been in English, Hebrew, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Arabic, Lugandu, Gujarati, Hindi, Spanish, or any language!!!  It’s still Him!!!  Don’t let anyone deceive you into thinking that you cannot call upon the name of Jesus unless you speak Hebrew.  He died for the whole world!!!  Yes we SHOULD NOT, SHOULD NOT, SHOULD NOT, bow down to any idols, but Jesus is not an idol, unless you carve statues for Him.

I am sorry if this disturbed or shook anyone’s faith, but this had to be said because otherwise you start believing lies and then you lose the power of God and we don’t want that.

Day of Revolt by the Succeed in Life organization – don’t go there

I was going about my day and I noticed a little ad a company hung on my door and it quoted Psalm 7:11 which says – God is a just judge,
And God is angry with the wicked every day.

It had a sign on the front – “IT’S NOT FAIR”   and it said “And yet, throughout history men and women of faith experienced amazing victories only after they got angry and made an intelligent, planned out revolt against their situations”

There are many things wrong with this statement, and for Christians who may be new to their walk of faith, I do not want you to be deceived.  When David was quoting that Psalm – he had physical enemies, but in Ephesians 6:12 it says – “12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age,[c] against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.

The Psalm – is actually called deliverance from enemies, but we don’t have enemies that are physical, and a mass stream of people having a revolt is not going to help anyone.  And actually the verse in the King James Version says – 11God judgeth the righteous, and God is angry with the wicked every day.

How would a righteous person act?  They would act the same way Jesus acted.  Jesus didn’t fight His accusers.  He didn’t say life was unfair.  He didn’t revolt.  He knew His Father and our God would hear, but He instead said, forgive them they know not what they do.  The way to reach God’s heart is through repentance, and prayer and turning your heart towards God in love, and showing mercy and compassion toward other people.

Jesus said, “Many will come in the last days saying ‘He is here’ or ‘He is in the upper room’ do not go there because when the world sees me I will be riding on the clouds and every eye will see me.”

God is a just judge.  That part is true, but it is up to God to decide who He will have mercy on and compassion on.  God judges everything righteously and fairly and there is no unfairness in Him.  He weighs heavily on His heart before He does something.  There is hope for the righteous, and to tell you the truth that our righteousness is nothing but filthy rags, but it is His righteousness bought and paid with by the Blood of Jesus that makes us worthy and blameless before His sight.  Why does He allow all these things to happen?  He wants to show us His mercy and give us time to repent.

Ezekiel 18 says –

21 “But if a wicked man turns from all his sins which he has committed, keeps all My statutes, and does what is lawful and right, he shall surely live; he shall not die. 22 None of the transgressions which he has committed shall be remembered against him; because of the righteousness which he has done, he shall live. 23 Do I have any pleasure at all that the wicked should die?” says the Lord God, “and not that he should turn from his ways and live?

24 “But when a righteous man turns away from his righteousness and commits iniquity, and does according to all the abominations that the wicked man does, shall he live? All the righteousness which he has done shall not be remembered; because of the unfaithfulness of which he is guilty and the sin which he has committed, because of them he shall die.

25 “Yet you say, ‘The way of the Lord is not fair.’ Hear now, O house of Israel, is it not My way which is fair, and your ways which are not fair? 26 When a righteous man turns away from his righteousness, commits iniquity, and dies in it, it is because of the iniquity which he has done that he dies. 27 Again, when a wicked man turns away from the wickedness which he committed, and does what is lawful and right, he preserves himself alive. 28 Because he considers and turns away from all the transgressions which he committed, he shall surely live; he shall not die. 29 Yet the house of Israel says, ‘The way of the Lord is not fair.’ O house of Israel, is it not My ways which are fair, and your ways which are not fair?

30 “Therefore I will judge you, O house of Israel, every one according to his ways,” says the Lord God. “Repent, and turn from all your transgressions, so that iniquity will not be your ruin. 31 Cast away from you all the transgressions which you have committed, and get yourselves a new heart and a new spirit. For why should you die, O house of Israel? 32 For I have no pleasure in the death of one who dies,” says the Lord God. “Therefore turn and live!”

This passage talks about repentance – not revolt.  Isaiah 59 says –

We look for justice, but there is none;
For salvation, but it is far from us.
12 For our transgressions are multiplied before You,
And our sins testify against us;
For our transgressions are with us,
And as for our iniquities, we know them:
13 In transgressing and lying against the Lord,
And departing from our God,
Speaking oppression and revolt,
Conceiving and uttering from the heart words of falsehood.

Ezekiel 33:

‘The righteousness of the righteous man shall not deliver him in the day of his transgression; as for the wickedness of the wicked, he shall not fall because of it in the day that he turns from his wickedness; nor shall the righteous be able to live because of his righteousness in the day that he sins.’ 13 When I say to the righteous that he shall surely live, but he trusts in his own righteousness and commits iniquity, none of his righteous works shall be remembered; but because of the iniquity that he has committed, he shall die. 14 Again, when I say to the wicked, ‘You shall surely die,’ if he turns from his sin and does what is lawful and right, 15 if the wicked restores the pledge, gives back what he has stolen, and walks in the statutes of life without committing iniquity, he shall surely live; he shall not die. 16 None of his sins which he has committed shall be remembered against him; he has done what is lawful and right; he shall surely live.

17 “Yet the children of your people say, ‘The way of the Lord is not fair.’ But it is their way which is not fair! 18 When the righteous turns from his righteousness and commits iniquity, he shall die because of it. 19 But when the wicked turns from his wickedness and does what is lawful and right, he shall live because of it. 20 Yet you say, ‘The way of the Lord is not fair.’ O house of Israel, I will judge every one of you according to his own ways.”

 

One thing we have to understand about God is that God is a God of justice, but He is also a God of love, mercy, compassion.  He is gentle, kind, longsuffering, peaceful, kind, slow to anger, good to all, and the more we praise Him, the more He finds answers to our problems.  The more we trust Him and become like clay in the hands of the Potter, the more we can rest in peace knowing that the God we serve has answers to our problems.

Nehemiah 9:

They [Israel, but could apply to all of us] refused to obey,
And they were not mindful of Your wonders
That You did among them.
But they hardened their necks,
And in their rebellion[b]
They appointed a leader
To return to their bondage.
But You are God,
Ready to pardon,
Gracious and merciful,
Slow to anger,
Abundant in kindness,
And did not forsake them.

So what is the answer – Jesus is the answer – prayer is the answer, seeking God with all your heart, mind, soul, and strength, and loving your neighbor as you love yourself is the answer, and repentance is the answer.

I don’t know what this organization is about, and I hope I have not brought more publicity to their cause, but if I have then God has His purposes.  But fellow brothers and sisters in Christ, I do not want you to be deceived into thinking that a Day of Revolt is going to answer anything.  Now I know that people reading this will take this out of context and twist this and use this for their own purposes, but without the presence of the Holy Spirit inside of you none of this will have any value.  There is a warning in there for taking one verse and using it out of context without applying it to revelation given by the Holy Spirit that matches up with the Word of God because if words are abused, then there will be consequences for that as well.

So for all those people that “work hard but see very few results, gave your life to someone who betrayed you, events caused your dreams to fall apart, doctors give you no hope” here is a prayer for you:

Heavenly Father,

I have been working very hard all my life, but am not seeing results, but I trust in You and I lean not on my own understanding knowing that all things work out together for good for those who love You and are called according to Your purpose.  Help me to see what Your purpose is and to know that I am not just burning my fuel on things that don’t matter to Your Kingdom.

Lord I have been betrayed by someone, and I feel like it’s unfair, but I know that You are fair and just and that You Yourself was betrayed by someone and I know that You understand what I am going through.  Thank You Father for sending Jesus who understands.

Lord I know that events in my life caused my dreams to fall apart, but I know that Your plans and dreams for my life are much bigger and that Your thoughts and Your ways are higher than my thoughts and my ways.  Thank You for helping me not to be discouraged by my circumstances.

I have been to every kind of doctor imaginable, and the answers are not there, but I know that through the stripes of Jesus I am healed and the sickness in my body is a lie, but Lord Thank You for being Jehovah Rapha, My healer, and I have faith that You will put Your loving arms on me and the anointing will follow through and You have already healed me.

I turn to You and confess that I am a sinner and that nothing is possible without Your Blood sacrifice that was shed for me.  I may not understand everything right now, but I believe and have faith in a God who is just and gives me hope, and that You will work in my life.  Thank You Lord, for Your miraculous power in every day little things.  I know that whatever my problems are they are not as bad as other people, and that someone else has it much worse.  Lord God I thank You, and I accept Your Son Jesus into my life.

In Jesus Mighty Name I pray,

Amen

At this time you can also pray with your heart as well.

 

 

 

No other name but the name of Jesus

There is a song by this name –

No other name but the name of Jesus

Is worthy of glory

Worthy of honor

Worthy of power and worthy of fame.

Now not to be confused with the Father who is Jehovah or YHWH, Jesus is the Son of God – the reason why there are two separate entities and the best I can describe it is like a body – you have the whole body which is like the Father, and then you have the heart, which is Christ Himself.  The Father was there with His heart ripped out in order make justification for our sins because Christ was slain from the foundation of the world.  How can that be?  Because Christ is outside of time and the Father created time, so everything is in the present as He is concerned.

So there is only ONE WAY – ONLY ONE WAY – ONLY ONE WAY – to get to heaven and that is through Jesus Christ.  What person wouldn’t want to accept someone who gave their life away so that the whole world can life?  He accepts you no matter what you did before you came to know Him, and He still loves you.  Not even the depths of hell can seperate you from the love of God.

There is a very dangerous set of beliefs right now that tie hinduism and Christianity together called New Age.  And then there’s the Interfaith movement, which just accepts everything.  If you accept Jesus You CANNOT ACCEPT EVERYTHING, or else you would make the Word of God null and void, and if you make the Word of God null and void, then there would be nothing redeemable in life because He is after all our sacrifice.  If you have all those “coexist” bumper stickers out there – take out the “t” because the Cross is not in there.  There is no way Christ talked about “coexisting” with other faiths.  He said that Narrow is the Gate and Few are the ones that find it.  He said that there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth for those who don’t believe.

hinduism and Christianity cannot coexist.  Any mixing of anything with Christianity is called syncretism, and is not a pure and true and holy faith.  Time is getting short and there is less and less time for people to spread the word out that get ready – JESUS is coming!!!  Jesus is alive and every other “spiritual leader is dead”.  Jesus had to come down as the Son of God and be submissive to reflect the character of humbleness, which He did by washing the disciples feet.

That’s why there had to be a Son, – there had to be a mediator – Job in the Bible cried out for one man – who would intercede between a Father who is holy and whose wrath is so tremense, who had so many rules because He was testing the people to see if they would really obey Him or not, so then He sent Jesus His Son, down to earth.  The thing that makes the Bible credible from the Jewish Tanak and Torah to the New Testament – Greek and Septuagint- is the fact that there is over 500 prophecies that got filled from the time of the Old Testament until now, and maybe even more.  When someone who is not born again reads the Bible – and they are not filled with the Holy Spirit, or have not accepted Christ as their one and only Savior- they will not be able to get the rhema or revelation, that comes from Him through the Bible so to them it will be another book.  The Holy Spirit then guides them to the truth of God’s Word and it brings Life to those who find it.  Before someone becomes born again, their spirit does not belong to God, but to the enemy, and when they receive Christ, their spirit then becomes the dwelling place for the Holy Spirit, and it takes complete surrender for the spirit to match up to the Holy Spirit.  They may be good people and consider themselves “righteous”, but their righteousness is like filthy rags to God.  And the only way they get cleansed is through the Blood of JESUS.

Before there was the devil, he was called lucifer and he was an angel of light in heaven with God, he was worship leader and he was very beautiful and what the Bible calls a cherub, and he wanted to be God, and he thought he was more beautiful that God and he exalted himself above the throne and was sent crashing down to the second heaven, where the angels and demons dwell and that is called the second heaven.

There were fallen angels called the sons of God back during the time that Noah was on the earth and they were created to teach righteousness with men, but they corrupted themselves by sleeping with the daughters of men and bearing children and those children became giants.

So then lucifer also called satan tempts Eve in the Garden of Eden to eat the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil which God has commanded her not to eat so she eats of it, and gives it to Adam (Adam and Eve were the first man and woman on the planet and they were without sin), and after they ate they became exposed to sin.

The whole Bible is showing about how Jesus had to come down and become the blood offering for the sins of the people.  God chose the Jews as a promise to Abraham and His covenant with Him about Isaac – His covenant was through Isaac and to prove that the Bible is accurate – the Hebrew Torah has been preserved throughout generations and the oral tradition has been carried out from generation to generation.  Isaac was a foreshadowing or something to signify or predict that Jesus was coming.  The whole Bible ties in together and is woven so intricately by the hand of God to show the many different ways and facets of Jesus.  There is still only one God and to explain the Father, Son and Spirit is to use the example of the sun – the sun signifies God, and the Light signifies Jesus, and the heat signifies the Holy Spirit.  But God is not the sun – He is much, much greater than the sun.

The first Commandment which still holds true in the New Testament – is to Have no other gods, statues, idols, or molded images before Him (Jehovah or YHWH)- But even Jesus honored that by being submissive to the Father, everything was done for the will of the Father.

The best thing about Jesus is that He came to forgive sins.  The Father God is not the universe, or any other god of any other religion.  He was only revealed to the Jews first through the Abraham and everything else came from Him.  Everything else is a form of idolatry and people that believe in any form of idolatry will be punished, but the best part is God loves you so much He just wants you to be with Him, and if you don’t accept the gift He gave you out of His heart of deep unconditional love then you will not get to know what an awesome God who is different and like no other god that there is.  There is only One God.  Isaiah 43:10 says there is no other god, there never has been, nor shall there be.

John 3:16 – God loved the world so much that He sent His only begotten Son that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have everlasting life.

Only a fool would say in His heart there is no God.

Now I am using an English Word here for “God” – but He is actually called YHWH – which you cannot pronounce, so they call the Father Jehovah in English.  Then there is Adonai and Elohim and many different names of God, which can be found.  But they are all found in the Father – and the Father has not come down in History, only the Son Jesus, and that was once.  The name Jesus is an English name, but His original Hebrew name is Yeshua.  Jesus called Him Daddy, or Abba- which is the Jewish affectionate term or Papa.

Satan is the god of this world, and YHWH is the God of Heaven.  The name Elohim – the Creator of the world, is the name whose English definition causes confusion because it has a double meaning – it can mean God or god, but according to years of rabbinical teachings and translations – the proper context of the words is found.  The scribes had to practice copying the Scriptures down word for word letter by letter for intimate detail and that is why the Law was passed for the season, so that they were allowed to be meticulous so that they could preserve the Word of God.  The term God we actually use now according to Judeo-Christian beliefs is different – the original word was Elohim.  If you really want to get into a study of the meaning of the words of Elohim, then you would have to use a Thayer’s Lexicon or go to Bible College and study that for a long time, and even then unless you are led by the Holy Spirit you could miss the big picture.  It is the word LORD, which is the One True God, the One we have relationship with as Father, and that is JEHOVAH.  The name Yeshua means the “One who saves”, and He is the only One who can save us from our sins.  Hence the name, Savior.

Jesus said, “I AM the WAY, the TRUTH, and the LIFE – NO ONE can get to the Father, except through Me.”

So as the time closes…I repeat myself as I have done – to know if there are any other people that haven’t found Jesus yet – or are convinced that there has to be more than one way or even no way.  Then this is my plead to you.  You have been blinded, and it is time to open your eyes to the Truth.

God justifies the harm of the righteous from the wicked with His wrath

There is a very serious danger going on in our society right now.  There are very serious lusts and degrees of sins, and while we say that grace does cover and grace washes over our sins, but it is the BLOOD OF JESUS, that cleanses from all unrighteousness, it is those who choose to follow God, and continue in no longer sinning.

Galatians 5 says –

19 Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery,[c] fornication, uncleanness, lewdness,20 idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, 21 envy, murders,[d] drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.

Colossians 3 says –

Therefore put to death your members which are on the earth: fornication, uncleanness, [lustful] passion(s), evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry. (emphasis added)

Matthew 5 says –

19 For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies.

We have a society that is based on lewdness, evil thoughts, fornications, etc., and even those that are sinners, unless they come into repentance, wrath is waiting for them.  You don’t want to see His wrath.

I posted a video called the Jealousy of God, and He is so jealous for His bride, the bride of Christ, that He will not tolerate any evil to come to her, and when people harm and persecute the Church, watchout, fury from the wrath of God is waiting for them.

Song of Solomon 8

For love is as strong as death,
Jealousy as cruel as the grave;
Its flames are flames of fire,
A most vehement flame.

Vehement means hot, fiery, passionate, intense.

The fireman in the Fantastic Four is nothing compared to the the vehement God who is known as Jealous and who as wrath.

Jesus cried vehement tears to the Father for us – Hebrews 5:7.

Psalm 58 says –

vs. 9 -Before your pots can feel the burning thorns,
He shall take them away as with a whirlwind,
As in His living and burning wrath.
10 The righteous shall rejoice when he sees the vengeance;
He shall wash his feet in the blood of the wicked,
11 So that men will say,
“Surely there is a reward for the righteous;
Surely He is God who judges in the earth.”

Proverbs 11 –

The desire of the righteous is only good,
But the expectation of the wicked is wrath.

People don’t see the power of our God, the One who with the touch of His finger can send a forest ablazing, or the touch of His feet can cause the earth to shake like a drunken man tossed back to and fro.

This is a very powerful God, but still people play games, they revel in their sin, and drunkeness, and fornication, without any consideration for their very souls.  They behave like pigs, and one sermon I listened to about the Presence of Pigs, said that if you are in the presence of pigs, you begin to tolerate evil.   God does not tolerate evil, and sometimes He wants to hug us and love us, but that treasure is only for the righteous, but the wicked have to suffer in the punishment of His wrath, when He comes to judge and vindicate and bring justice to His Bride.  We are the Bride of Christ, and we belong to Him.

I feel like a voice crying in the wilderness, “Repent, Repent, for the Kingdom of God is at hand!!!!”
