Who among us is sold-out for the Gospel?

April 25, 2011

How many of us fast and pray, day and night, LORD use me for your Gospel! ?

I only have a short time here, so LORD please help me redeem the time and make me your instrument to preach the Gospel, and please open doors and opportunities for me today.

He died for all

April 24, 2011

that they who live should no longer live unto themselves, but unto Him who died for them, and rose again. 2 Corinthians 5:15

Set your affection on things above

April 23, 2011

not on things on the earth. Colossians 3:2

You can’t stop God’s natural or spiritual law!!

April 23, 2011

Well, God can stop them.

Someone may be a clone of Kenneth Copeland, and they are believing for their 100-fold return on the seed they’ve sown.

Now, God may have pity on this pathetic, covetous man, and want to deliver him from his love of money so that he can love Jesus.

So, what does God do? In spite of this man’s “sowing” into “good soil” so diligently, He causes him to go broke.

This man’s house of cards comes tumbling down around him.

He is bewildered. Why, God? Why, KC? Kenneth answers, You didn’t have enough faith.

This man was taught that “sowing and reaping” is a universal law that applies to everyone, whether they know Jesus or not, meaning that God is not a Person, He is a force which anyone can “tap into”, or a “principle” which anyone can apply.

Then, this man realizes that, despite all his “sowing”, it was GOD who made him go broke (not the devil) to cause him to realize that he was relating to God as an idol.

This man had reduced God to an idol, by depersonalizing Him and making Him into a “force” or a “spiritual law”.

Hebrews tells us that if we submit to and accept such harsh dealings from God, it shows that we are truly God’s sons, BUT if we can “prosper” AND be corrupt at the same time (like Copeland and other conmen) …AND GET AWAY WITH IT, it shows that we are illegitimate, and not God’s children.

That is why so many conmen “prosper” in “Jesus name”, cos they are illegitimate, and not under the Father’s discipline.

Does Jesus advertise?

April 22, 2011

We are His advertisment.

His words and gospel out of our mouths is His advertisement. His written word is His advertisement. They are Spirit and Life. His words fulfilled in our lives is His advertisement.

ON THE PAYROLL

April 22, 2011

This is another principle or characteristic of religious babylon.

True prophets trust God for their income. They never look to man for income, and therefore they are FREE FROM man, in order to speak to man, for God. Meaning, whether people will stop supporting them is NEVER a consideration. They are not on the payroll, so they are free, and also free to experience God’s abundant provision.

False prophets, pastors, reverends etc, are the total flip-side to this. The bottom-line is their income, and their ongoing financial security, so this consideration will be the main dynamic affecting their whole message and teaching. They are on the payroll. Such a person can never know Jesus, let alone hear the voice of God.

You see this ALL THE TIME played out in religious babylon. You see leaders make comments on an issue, and then stop short of telling the whole truth of the matter. Why? They ain’t dumb. They are political. They are extremely sensitive to the “voters” sentiments. They know when telling the truth would not be in their financial interest.

This is normal. EVERY famous leader in Christianity does this, to some extent.

A picture of salvation

If Jesus had not caught me in His arms, when He did, i would have kept falling into hell.

Any nation which supports the dividing of Jerusalem

April 22, 2011

and making it the capital of a Palestinian state, will suffer severe consequences. I believe that God will make the judgments of such a scale, that it will be obvious to any intelligent person, and they will know there is a connection.

It is evil to support any claim for the Land of Israel, by anyone other than the Israelis, for it is to make God to be a liar and a fool.

And the LORD said unto Abram, after Lot was separated from him, Lift up now your eyes, and look from the place where you are northward, and southward, and eastward, and westward: For all the land which you see, to you will I give it, and to your descendants forever. Gen 13:14-15

Are not you our God, who did drive out the inhabitants of this land before your people Israel, and gave it to the descendants of Abraham your friend forever? 2 Chron 20:7

Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you

April 21, 2011

And Jesus came and spoke unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go you therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen. Matthew 28:18-20

On brother Jim’s blog he is discussing religious babylon.

I had this thought this morning, that one trait of babylon; and it’s a unifying, ubiquitous, and identifying trait, is the unwritten and unspoken law, that they will NOT teach Christians to OBEY everything the LORD Jesus taught and commanded. A quiet, philosophical assent, yes; and perhaps not vociferously arguing against doing what Jesus said, BUT the prevailing sentiment is an ambivalent attitude where it’s OK to not obey Jesus commands.

AND, the real kicker is, that to rise within that system it is MANDATORY that you do NOT obey or teach others what Jesus commanded. Don’t be surpised by that, when it’s principalities, powers and “angels of light” you are facing, head on.

Babylon is a spiritual system and spiritual power and bondage. Anyone who has set their heart to obey Jesus commands and teaching will NEVER fit in to babylon, and will never be accepted by babylon. Babylon will spit them out.

When Jesus calls His people OUT of babylon, He is surely calling us to repent that we ever approved of her deeds.

Overwhelmed by who God is

April 20, 2011

Do you sometimes get overwhelmed by the fact of who God is?

I do.

He is staggering. He staggers our mind, and it reels, and our spirit soars at the thought of just who He is.

To see Jesus as He is, now, our present bodies would not be able to stand it. We would fall down like a dead man, as John did.

And when I saw Him, I fell at His feet as dead… Revelation 1:17a

We should love God.

“Big” Truth

April 20, 2011

http://glennchristopherson.wordpress.com/2011/04/19/big-truth/

But to this man will I look, even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit, and trembles at my word

April 20, 2011

Isaiah 66:1-4

If we choose our own way, God will choose a delusion to give us.

Even though God is Almighty, All Glorious, He will only fellowship with the lowly, and with no one who is high-minded. Jesus is meek and lowly in heart.

If we move out of lowliness we move out of His fellowship.

The whole world will become antisemitic

April 20, 2011

And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth are gathered together against it. Zechariah 12:3

The whole world becomes antisemitic.

WHY do all the people of the earth gather TOGETHER against Israel?

(Note: The universal UNITY: together against Israel)

Simply bcos they are all united together, under satan, in the belief that God did not give the Jews that land, and they are angry that the Jews are “occupying” “Arab land”.

Or, they believe that the land ONCE belonged to the Jews, but now, in the New Covenant age, it no longer belongs to them.

This delusion is a strong delusion given to them by God.

Before they received the Holy Spirit they were casting out demons and healing

April 18, 2011

Luke 9:1-6, 10:1-21

He ...gave them power and authority over all demons, and to cure diseases. And he sent them to preach the kingdom of God, and to heal the sick.

I find this very interesting, bcos this happened BEFORE they received the Holy Spirit – before they were born of the Spirit, regenerated and made new creatures in Christ. Before they really understood anything of the Kingdom and Word of God. Before they understood the Gospel and the Cross.

It shows to us the working of Jesus’ authority.

At this juncture, they preached, cast out demons and healed, NOT bcos they were empowered to do it, or knew “how to do it” : rather, it was simply bcos Jesus said so.

This is a pattern for the Church. If we will simply DO WHAT HE SAYS, even before we understand the Kingdom of God, or the Scriptures, even, then everything will follow, for He will bring the correct order.

At the time, the twelve and the seventy, who were sent out, had NO OTHER OPTION than to simply obey Jesus’ command and commissioning. At that time, it must have seemed amazing to them that Jesus is telling them to do these things, when they had never done it before, and they know, that, humanly speaking, Jesus is asking them to do the impossible.

Errr, hello?

April 18, 2011

In an interview on CNN that left host Candy Crowley with a look of disbelief throughout, Mr Trump outlined his approach to Libya.

“I’d do one thing. Either I go in and take the oil or I don’t go in at all,” he said.

“You’d just take their oil?” Crowley asked.

“Absolutely. I’d take the oil, I’d give them plenty so they can live very happily. I would take the oil. You know, in the old days when you have a war and you win, that nation’s yours,” Mr Trump said.

To the Elders

April 16, 2011

Here is a message for the Elders, plural (not “The Pastor”) :

The elders who are among you I exhort, who am also an elder, and a witness of the sufferings of Christ, and also a partaker of the glory that shall be revealed: Feed the flock of God which is among you, taking the oversight thereof, not by constraint, but willingly; not for dishonest gain, but of a ready mind; Neither as being lords over God’s heritage, but being examples to the flock. And when the chief Shepherd shall appear, you shall receive a crown of glory that fades not away. 1 Peter 5:1-4

Marine life discovery

April 16, 2011

The removal of a massive iceberg from the Mertz glacier in East Antarctica has revealed a huge diversity of new life.

The 78 kilometre long iceberg separated from the Mertz glacier last year after it was rammed by another giant iceberg.

It has exposed a section of the Southern Ocean previously covered in hundred of metres of ice.

This summer scientists were able to deploy underwater cameras where the glacier tongue used to be.

They have discovered new species of marine life, including sponges and fish as well as sea stars the size of hub caps.

He performs His will

April 15, 2011

After this manner therefore pray: Our Father who is in heaven, hallowed be your name. Your kingdom come. Your will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Matthew 6:9-10

The LORD often brings me back to the most basic truths. The prayer of faith (and it’s a perpetual exercising of faith) is that we believe that God performs His will. He works to accomplish His will, according to His limitless power and glory in Christ Jesus.

We should BELIEVE this when we pray, Your will be done, today, on earth as it is in heaven.

We should actually believe that His will, will be done.
