I believe today more than any time in history the separation, of true believers and non-believers are becoming more noticeable than ever before. And I believe it will continue to be even more noticeable as time goes by. Lukewarm Christians will oppose the words of the Bible even more and will be very hostile to a true believer who preaches it. Remember Jesus tells us that our reward will be great to those who are persecuted and hated for His sake. True separation from people of the world is very uncomfortable. You don’t fit in and people judge you as being possess by a religious spirit, when in truth it is the other way round.

We can’t blend the words of the Bible with what the world teaches. It becomes for those who do it a water down Christianity without power. If we talk about heaven we must also talk about the existence of hell without over doing it, but with love. Not backing down from what is written in the Bible will create enemies. You are either for God or against Him.

2 Corinthians chapter six, is a reminder what true Christians are prepared to face for their love of God. True Christians can’t afford to be weak in this time of history, nor are they. God makes us strong and stronger as we obey Him. God loves us passionately and despises hypocrites which is what water down Christianity is. We don’t look the same, act the same, dress the same our speech is different from Christians who don’t take the lessons of the Bible serious enough. For example we don’t use the Lords name in vain, which so many Christians are doing right now and don’t realize just how serious it is in doing so. Many Lukewarm Christians, I believe don’t know what the Bible says or they wouldn’t be content at being Lukewarm. They would have a Holy fear of God that will keep them safe.

2 Corinthians 6:16. And what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For you are the temple of the living God. As God has said “I will dwell in them. I will be their God, and they shall be My people.

A temple of holiness is what we are called to be, and the world is anything but holy. I understand we fall many times and have to be washed by the blood of Jesus many times a day. There is a remarkable difference how a true believer behaves, from those who are half-heartedly Christians that really live to please themselves and not God. We are taught by the world to pamper ourselves. Jesus and His disciples lived it rough and all the disciples except for John died for their faith. We must be prepared to strengthen our faith by means of prayer, fasting and studying the Bible and putting it into practise.

Christians have become weak in this society, because we don’t want to offend anybody, which is a good quality, but we need not offend God in the process. There is a time to speak and a time to be silent. We need to learn to discern Gods’ voice in every matter. Showing people the way by living as the Gospel teachers us, and that is a holy life with joy and love of God and our neighbour. Will save more people than trying to fit in with preaching what the world wants to hear. If we do that we just look like hypocrites and save no one.

Remember we are warriors and we fight by being imitators of Jesus Christ. We are powerfully heard in prayer. Fasting and obedience to God strengthens our prayers and our faith can move all kinds of mountains. The closer we are to God, the braver we become and holier and are willing to give up all for God and love all, whether people deserve it or not. We choose to follow Jesus all the way. Not let the world bully us to do it their way.

I apologize that what I write is hard, but it needs to be addressed. Too many Christians are being deceived and living as the world preaches and not how Jesus commands us to live. God truly loves us more than we can comprehend and His wisdom is beyond us. We need to follow Jesus, because He knows the way to please God our Father and enter heaven. Jesus is the way and the life, not the world which we live in for now.

Praising God

Praising God, not only is God extremely happy with us for doing it, we are strengthen by doing it also. Praising Him is the most powerful way of getting close to Him. Even if we don’t feel like praising Him, but do so anyway. God rewards us. I am trying to make the habit of saying “I love you” to Him throughout the day. It is a quick prayer and a reminder who I serve. Thanking Him for everything for me is the first step that leads me into praise and worship. It is hard to praise Him when you don’t feel like it. I envy King David’s praises. He has a very colourful way of praising Him. The Psalms is one of my most favourite book in the bible. It is very good and informative about how great our God is. And helps my imagination to look deeply at how much God truly loves us all. And that He will save those who love Him and protect those who acknowledge Him as Lord, is a promise in Psalms 91.

Learning not to take myself so seriously is an important lesson for me. I wonder if you have the same problem. I find praising God, miracles can happen, and there are times when God will manifest Himself to you. For example this morning during Holy Communion, I was praising the Bread of Life while eating Him, and I felt His presence within me so strongly. Another thing, if we can’t praise Him while we are going through a fairly good time, how much harder it will be during very challenging times. We are in the last of the last days and we are going to need courage and reassurance that God is in control of our lives, if we put our full trust in Him. Start getting into the habit of praising Him now and start declaring verses in the bible that strengthens you now, so when you are in a middle of a crises you are already in the habit of doing it. It will give you strength and stamina to fight the good fight to the end. If you have the gift of tongues, don’t waste that gift and speak it often. We need to be strong in the Lord in good times as well as in bad times. Praising God lifts your spirit, and declaring His promises strengthens your faith. And when your faith is strong you become a powerful child of God in Christ Jesus.

God Answers Prayers

Many people think, God won’t answer their prayers. They think you have to be a very, very holy before God will even consider your prayers to be important. I have heard many times people won’t pray for the little things, because they don’t want to bother God. The truth is God is so interested in you and all that you do. Even the most ordinary and insignificant act of your day is all important to God. If I lose a pin I ask God to help me find it. God never gets mad when we include Him in our day. Doesn’t matter how unimportant you think it is, it is important to God, because His love is not like ours. Infinite in fact and infinite in mercy. God is a doer. Because most people think they are unworthy of been heard by God, much could have been done that wasn’t. Not only does God take a keen interest in your day, He wants you to pray for others as well. Because God is all powerful and He is waiting on you to call on His power and love to help you with every detail of your life and to help others through you.

When I started to realise I could help people on the other side of the world still in my pyjamas that was exciting for me. I was too shy to speak to people never alone about God, but I could pray for someone and know God will help them because I prayed. I pray that you will pray to God with confidence and not be shy about it. Your life will change for the better and you will learn more about God’s character if you persevere with a prayer life. What I mean your life will improve for the better, I don’t mean you won’t have problems, but you will find through your prayers and obedience to God, you will be given the grace to deal with those problems far better than you would relying on your own strength.

The joy you give God when you spend time with Him is enormous. His love is bigger than we can possibly imagine and you know yourself you don’t like to be ignored, but happy when people give you their full loving attention. God is bigger than us and He gives you some of His joy to us when we make a habit to look to Him for help in everything we do. God becomes not only your Father, but your best friend. And when you know your prayers can make a big difference in someone’s life you know it is the kind thing to do. The more merciful we are the more merciful God is to us. Your light will shine, people will notice something different about you, the more you pray and let God enter in your life.

About three years ago I lost my faith because I refuse to listen to God. I was sure I was going to hell. I didn’t stop my prayer life though and God restored my faith back little by little. Praying to God is one of the most powerful things you can do to save yourself and others from the lies of Satan. It is like a life saver to a drowning person. Obedience is also important. There are many temptations out there and prayer can help you so much in every circumstances that you find yourself in.

Look Forwarded to Going to Heaven

The Bible is not only a manual on how we should conduct our lives to please God. It is full of hope and miracles, which we can still see today. However the problem today is most of us don’t study the Bible enough including myself. When I studied it, I am learning about the character of Our God and His powerful miracles. Full of comfort and encouragement to imitate Jesus. Who is the only way to God. We all have faults and we are to love one another and pray for one another without ceasing. By doing this we will be rewarded for it and go to heaven worshiping our God in a powerful way that is not possible on earth. We will be purer, holier and far more loving towards one another than we can comprehend on earth. No more sin. Can you imagine that? No more temptations of any kind. It is something to look forward to. Meeting God who is so pleased with us, because we are His beloved children.

Praying Without Ceasing

Praying Without Ceasing

To pray without ceasing sounds daunting at first. When you first tried, you probably thought it would be impossible, but found later God is only too willing to help you, if you are set on doing it. We do have our off days. But let me encourage you for those yet to try. Have you notice in the early days God will set you up so to speak. You go to a barbeque as an example. You can’t seem to fit in so you find a quiet place and just start talking to God, because He is the only one willing to listen to you. While talking to Him you realise you only come to Him when you are feeling lonely or sad. Or when some emergency comes your way. That seems how our relationship with God starts off for many of us. We are brought up to be Christians, but the seed of upbringing has just started to come alive with the awareness of God’s love and patience, when we are not happy with life or ourselves.

To pray without ceasing is not always praying verbally. To be conscious of God is with you throughout the day is also prayer. Doing a kind deed or holding back your tongue, out of love and obedience to God is a form of prayer as well. With me it started with a huge trial I was facing. I was fighting all day with thoughts that would over-take my mind. But finally it all stop through a gracious miraculous event through the power of God. By the time my trial was over I was already in the habit of thinking about God all day long.

There of course times like at work or school etc. that you have to concentrate on the job, but the thought of God is just under the surface. In a moment you are asking God for help in your work or shopping etc. God becomes your companion daily and not just when you are struggling. Always put time in for verbal prayers as well. If you are to have a close relationship with God, you need to talk to Him about everything, your problems, your joys, what you have been doing that day, what has impress you and so on. You talk to Him as a child would its father, except with more intimacy and trust. You talk to Jesus as your Saviour, Brother and Spouse etc. And the Holy Spirit is a person of the Holy Trinity too, and He is your best friend, who will open your eyes to truths you haven’t thought of. Practise makes perfect.

If you do pray without ceasing it changes everything about your life. You will receive the peace of the Lord, the joy of the Lord and you will become more loyal to God. And come to love Him more, as well as getting to know Him better. You will also be more likely to get visions etc. But when that starts to happen you test the spirit. Not all visions, prophesies etc. come from God.  It is a commandment of God to pray without ceasing as St. Paul tell us.

1Thessalonians 5:17. Pray without ceasing.

Paul spoke it very straight forwardly. No room to mistake what he was saying. There should be no argument with what he is saying to us through scripture. Following Christ is not always easy. We do have to put effort into it. Most of us are lazy by nature. But with the help of God we can overcome it, if we be gentle, but firm with ourselves. Continuing asking God for His help. I hope you see how wonderful a gift it is to keep God’s company, all throughout the day. God is so keen for us to come to Him with faith and complete trust. The only way to get to know a person is to be with them and communicate to them. The same, with God. He wants your company badly. So give it a try and if you persevere, you will see your life change for the better.

Church United

The Church United

1 Corinthians 1:12-13

Now I say this, that each of you says, “I am of Apollos, “ or “I am of Paul,” or “I am of Apollos,” or “I am of Christ.” Is Christ divided? Was Paul crucified for you? Or were you baptized in the name of Paul?

The problem with just reading the bible is not really taking it in. The description of the church of Corinthians sounds much like what is happening in the church today. We need to learn to relax and ask God for discernment. There are many wolves in sheep’s clothing that we have to watch. At the same time there is genuine Christians simply have different views on how to interrupt parts of the bible to us. For example I get upset when people don’t believe that the bread and the wine really turns into the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ. I am thinking of one women in particular, that we disagreed on it, but respected one another beliefs, because we knew we both love God, with all our hearts. So are many other Christians who are also growing in their faith. We are told by Jesus to treat one another the way we would like to be treated. We all would like to be treated with respect and with love and curtesy.

John 14:26-27

These things I have spoken to you while being present with you. But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My Name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you.

God has always something new to teach us. We might be guilty as I was once as a young person thinking I knew it all, and God then challenge me with new insight. So we never stop learning. That is a beautiful thing. God is so big that I believe when we get to heaven, we will continue to learn new things about Him, without tearing one another down.  We need to rely on the Holy Spirit not our religion so much, because our relationship with God is all important and religion tends to get us stuck in a lot of man-made rules that don’t come from God. We have to quieten down to hear the Holy Spirit. The Spirit of God doesn’t push His way in. We have to search for Him sometimes in the Bible being the main place or some holy book that the Spirit of God leads us to.

I have known for a long time that Satan puts thoughts into our heads that are not ours, but seem to be, trying to bring us down. I have now after many years of late, discovered that he will fill us up with emotions that are not ours, to manipulate us into things like suicide, deep depression, anxiety, stress and bad feelings about ourselves that we are unworthy of being saved, that God is always angry with us etc. There is also a great deal of witchcraft going on sending spirits of fear onto Gods people, which stops us from fulfilling our calling etc. I remember I woke up with a feeling that came over me like a very excessive huge swamp of unworthiness. I felt so weak that I thought I was doomed. In my weak state I rebuked it in the name of Jesus. Not knowing if it would work or not. It lifted immediately after I rebuke it. It happened a few other times. Usually coming out of sleep.

So I am writing this down so as to encourage anybody at all who have to deal with this kind of torment, not to give into it, but rebuke it and cast it out, in the Name of Jesus. I know there will be many people who will say things like I am too scared to try it in case I upset the demon. Things might go out of my control. I am no expect in casting out demons either, but I have been force to give it a try. If you read up on self-deliverance it will help build your confidence, in giving it a try. I have a friend who is so scared of doing a good deed, because she is afraid the devil will retaliate. He does, that is why we have to learn not only to defend ourselves but attack back.

The church isn’t much of a help to us, by being in denial of the seriousness of the problem in the community of saints. Like I said I am not an expect either. I am self-taught, because the church I attend to won’t have anything to do with the gifts of the Holy Spirit. That is why the numbers are declining. Most of us want more than just to sit in the pews and listen to a nice sermon. We want to be free in the name of Jesus. Even though I had to rely on books and video shows to get me started. God is strengthening my spiritual muscles little by little. We have to start somewhere or we will get beaten down by witchcraft.

An ex-warlock said that he believes there are more witches and warlocks than there are Christians. Mind you most Christians are asleep, while the witches are very active and they learn fast their craft. I also have read the prophetess going by the name of Maria Divine Mercy that Jesus told her that they are increasing quicker than ants. And that was back in 2012. I do recommend John Ramirez’s books they are helping me. Most of you probably know he was a general in promoting the dark side and now he is very much in love with Jesus. So he knows all the tricks of the devil.

We have to remember we are a child of God the Most High. And God loves us more than any father on earth and will protect us against evil. God is on our side. We are on the winning side. Satan has been defeated at the Cross of Jesus. Demons in truth are more afraid of us once we know who we are in Jesus Christ. God is great and marvellous and won’t let us down if we put our trust in Him. We are already victorious in Jesus. Just put your faith in where it belongs in Jesus. Of course some people are called to cast out demons. That is their ministry, but we all can call on the name of Jesus and get an expert on deliverance, if you know one to do the hard stuff. You do need guidance in self-deliverance and we do need to be sensible about it.

I was too timid to try once. I am a shy person myself so I didn’t have much faith in my ability to order and rebuke demons. Then I was force into it. I had insomnia so serious that I was dying of exhaustion. I had no choice, the doctors couldn’t do anything about it. We must remember God is our friend and loving Father.

If you are suffering with suicide thoughts the chances are they are not your thoughts but somebody put them there and you can do something about it. Stand on the word of God and say to the demon of suicide, I rebuke you spirit of suicide in the name of Jesus to leave me at once and never return, or something similar. Say it and mean it. If it has left me it will leave you too in Jesus name. Remember I have a timid nature too. Despite what my writings sounds like to you. You may have to do it every time the thought comes to you. If you are determined in Jesus Christ you will see results. I bless you and congratulate you for trying, because so many are too afraid they think that the demons are bigger than God who loves you and won’t forsake you.

God has a plan for you

Jeremiah 1:5. “I knew you before I formed you in your mother’s womb. Before you were born I set you apart and appointed you as my prophet to the nations.”

Jeremiah 29:11. “I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord, “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.”

We may not be called to be a prophet, as Jeremiah was, but God has a very special, out of the ordinary plan for all of us. If we let God have His way with us. Even all the babies that have been aborted, God had a beautiful plan for them too. So just because God has a wonderful plan for us, it doesn’t always come to pass through our disobedience. God has made everybody in His own image. We are very special to Him. I believe we are like Him in small ways. God is free of evil, but the similarities are things like we have emotions as He does. We have a free will, we can think, decide, feel, touch, create, explore, and experience all sorts of good things similar to what God can do. Except God can do infinitely more and better than us. We are His children and He wants us to hasten His Kingdom on earth through our calling.

I believe we can miss our chances of doing what God is calling us to do, for many reasons. One of them we have to become so obedient that it becomes second nature to us. We will fall many times and have to repent, but overall our heart is in the right place. We must die to self-interest and be ready to discipline ourselves daily. And deliberately choose the will of God over our lives. If we really have God’s interest at heart, God will reveal to us at the right time our true calling. And it is going to be incredible. Others may not understand where you are going, but you will. It is usually something you are drawn to all the time. Like it is in your blood as they say. If we fail God in answering our calling, that is disobedience. People have lost their souls through being disobedient to their calling. The danger of course is not making it to heaven, when they die. Our calling isn’t an option. It is the will of God and we must obey at all cost.

Matthew 7:21. ‘Not everyone who says to me, Lord, Lord, shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven.’

God’s dream for you is bigger than your dreams are. Dreams that needs a miracle to accomplish is usually the case. God wants to show off His glory through you. You must make the habit of praying and let the Holy Spirit guide you.

I think most of us have a real problem with being childlike and coming to God as a child would to a loving father. Our true Father is God Himself and He is often misinterpreted as a very strict aloof kind of a Father. It is easy to relate to Him as our God, but to see Him as our Daddy for most of us we need to visualise us in His arms more, laughing and playing with us. As we learn to be more trusting and childlike before Him, we will have a wonderful and powerful relationship with Him. I have a picture of a mother holding her baby boy and she is laughing with him. You see her pride in him so easily. It is hanging on my wall to remind me who made the hearts of loving parents. Loving parents are mirroring a little of God’s love for His children. We are made in His own image.

Listening to Gods’ Voice

Prayer sometimes requires an action as well. Sometimes Gods’ answers a prayer suddenly without warning and other times we have to wait. But what I have learnt, and it has taken me years that God wants us also to contribute some action before the prayer is fully answered in many cases. For example at the moment I am praying to become more obedient to God. So my action is trying to become more aware when the Holy Spirit has put a thought in me to do or not to do something.

Instead of treating my thought as if they are all mine, I want to be alert when it is God speaking to me. And if a thought comes to me that is an instruction from the Holy Spirit I want to be aware of it. So that I won’t treat it as if it is an optional thing to do or not. I have discovered over the years not all my thoughts are mine. The devil puts thoughts into our minds as well as the Holy Spirit. And I am still learning to discern. I write them down and try to work it out from there. God is talking to us all the time, so are the devils. So when a thought now comes to me to do that extra kind thing or eat less than I was planning too, I have to be more alert as where these thoughts are coming from. If they are from God then I have to learn to obey.

It is easy to know to obey the Commandments, but when a thought comes to you like do the washing up now. I might say I do it later, then later comes and it will be put aside again. That’s what I am talking about. If it is God talking then I have to learn to obey promptly and not put it off. It will be a new challenge for me. I know the more we respond to Gods’ Spirit the more sensitive we become to hearing Him. And if we obey we will be truly be blessed by Him. To disobey we lose out.

There books on how to discern your thoughts from the thoughts that come from God or the devil. I got mine from Sids Roth on-line store years ago. I think we kind of know the thoughts that come from the devil. They are either condemning us or inviting us to sin. Gods’ voice might be harder to recognize in that they are usually gentle, kind, uplifting thoughts. We tend to think we don’t deserve them and it us being egoistic.

The thoughts that come to you that just flow are supernatural. Our own thoughts are deliberate, we plan them. It takes practice to discern where they come from. They might only be a few words at a time that is how it happens to me often. First you have to quieten yourself down. I always try to write them down. I find it is easier that way. It is advisable to have a person or two to check it out to see if you are discerning correctly. I have been told to do silly things, thinking it was from God, but in fact was from the devil. For example, to sell my car and I don’t have enough money to replace it and where I live I need a car. This happened to me. God in His goodness protected me, nobody was interested in buying it. So be careful. It is tremendously rewarding if you plan to learn how to discern the thoughts that come to you. You get to know God better and know He truly loves you. Gods’ voice becomes clearer the more we listen to it. It will develop over time.


Onward Christian Soldiers

Onward Christian Soldiers, was one of my favourite hymns when I was young. I remember at church the minister had problems getting us to sing at all. A lot to do with the high notes of the many hymns of that day that we couldn’t reach. I remember it wasn’t just my favourite, but the whole church would sing it confidently on top of our voices. One of my favourite verses of that hymn is;

Like a mighty army moves the church of God. Brothers we are treading where saints have trod before. We are not divided all one body we. One in hope and doctrine and one in charity.

We are in the last hour of the last day, which I think many of us realise by now. And there will never be a time in history like what we about to step into. My prayer is that we will all become the most courageous saints that has ever walked this earth. Because we are going to need courage to do the will of God in these days. We will be hated for our faith. Many of us will be treading where the saints have trod before and some I believe even greater still. Because God is doing a new thing according to the modern prophets of today.

We need to praise God as often as we can and if possible sing uplifting songs that move our spirit in true worship. When we make a habit of speaking or singing life into our lives, it will strengthen us in the battle against Satan and the troubles we are currently in and that of the future. God is more likely to answer prayers more powerfully to those who praise God the most. We have to remember it is not a religion God wants, but a loving relationship with Him.

I had a dream from God when I was young that Satan’s army was on the left side, violent with all the things of a nasty evil war. What I saw on the right side was God’s army all singing praises to God. Jumping up and down with great joy and worshiping God.
Nehemiah 8:10. The joy of the Lord is your strength.

When we put our minds on the goodness of God, God responds not only with His presence, but with His power. Prayer and praising God is so powerful a tool against the enemy that is all we have to do at times. God is quiet able to defeat the army of Satan by Himself, but He wants us to share in the victory. And we do that by praising Him, glorifying Him, worshiping Him, and being obedient to His will and then the result will be, you become a powerful overcomer for God. Victorious warrior in Christ Jesus army.

Luke 6:23. Be happy! Yes, leap for joy! For a great reward awaits you in heaven.

True followers of Christ in the last days will be hated by the world, and by many people who call themselves Christians that are not truly following Jesus will hate us too. Back to the dream I had, the thing is not only was God’s army giving God praise they were of one accord. No two Christians are going to agree on everything, but we can be united by obeying God’s Commandments, which is love.

John 13:34-35. “So now I am giving you a new commandment; love each other. Just as I have loved you, you should love each other. Your love for one another will prove to the world that you are My disciples.”

God’s word is not to be tampered with. And when God has truly got you to correct somebody, you do it out of the love for God and the person you have been told to correct. You know when God is telling you to do so, He puts it in your spirit. What I have noticed and I believe many of you also have found, many people don’t want to hear the truth unless it pleases them.

In an army the soldiers have to obey their officers and we have to obey Jesus who is our commander. The Bible explains clearly the will of God and how to obey Him. So there is a genuine war going on between good and evil. People are twisting the truth knowingly to suit themselves, on one hand, and on the other there are Christians with different doctrines that genuinely love God. Jesus tells us how to discern a true prophet from a false one, by their fruits. In other words are they obeying the commandment of love or not? Love is not always lovely dovey. Love can correct a person, because they genuinely want that person saved, but before you go ahead and correct someone, make sure it is Gods’ will for you to do so. A lot of times it is best to agree to disagree or simply turning the other cheek. Humility has to be present also. Many people unfortunately just want to be right and cause division through self-righteousness.

The hymn Onward Christian Soldiers is one of my favourites, because it assures me we are victorious in Christ Jesus. I sing it most days, not long after I get out of bed. My voice is horrible but I love to sing, especially praise and worship songs. The hymn strengthens my faith and it makes me joyful that I belong to such a powerful army of God, who will help usher in the Kingdom of God on earth. I love all the verses of that hymn, but I just write one more verse down to remind us we are supposed to be united not divided.

Onward then ye people join our happy throng. Blend with ours your voices in the triumph song. Glory, praise and honour unto Christ the King. This through countless ages men and angels sing.

The chorus
Onward, Christian soldiers! Marching as to war, with the cross of Jesus, going on before.
