Love God, Love others!

posted by PrayerWarrior

I am astounded beyond words with how insane things are. I knew love would be called hate, I knew hate would be called love, but there is so much more to that whole story than we see.

Isaiah 5:20 Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil;
Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness;
Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
The Holy Spirit fills in the blanks for us. God never says more than what needs saying. His word does not mince words, it needs no more words than it has, because in order to get the rest of the story, the complete understanding of that concept, One must have the Holy Spirit living within them!

If the Holy Spirit resides inside you, you will have what is not written, in your remembrance. You will understand what is not said, forewarned is forearmed, and having understanding of the Lord, His will and ways, and the word.

Of course growth happens at all times in the Lord, we progress from tests and trials along the way, growing in understanding and perseverance, wisdom and knowledge.
I say all this because I knew this was all coming, because I love the Lord and He speaks messages to my heart in one package uploaded to my heart. It is truly a complete packet of knowledge, a real revelation of understanding that is quite mind blowing.

That is called blessing! The more of these packages you receive, the More you need, more of Him. God is so much more addicting than anything life has to offer us. In Him is Life, real loving life is found!
No matter what we go through, He is there! Holding us up, moving us, as long as we allow Him the reigns of our life, He will see us through it!

Tests are hard, but the reward is a closer walk with Him.
I don’t know about anyone else bt I myself want to serve Him with every ounce I have within and without me to give. Hot because I am doing extraordinary works, because that’s not what i am talking about. It is because I want to be pleasing to the Father. i want to be a sweet odor before His nostrils.

My life is my only thing I have to give Him, and this is exactly what He wants from us, our life! Every part of our lives is sacrificed to Him, because this is the only thing we have to give Him back for His extraordinary love.
I want to love God as much as He loves me, or die trying! I know I can never ever achieve that kind of love, but I am surely going to give it the best I’ve got.
We are to live a life of complete sacrifice of self and to self. Die each day to yourself, by picking up your cross, and deciding to die to self and live through Christ, who lives through us!

Allow Him to work in your every part of you, be His body mind, and soul. You cannot go wrong by giving Him yourself from the top of your head to the soles of your feet and everything in between, be His!

If you don’t live with His Presence, every moment of every day of your life, why would He then want to have His every moment near you who could not sacrifice yourself to Him, for eternity?

Sold out is what the Lord our God is looking for. All His all the time every day every night no matter what you are doing in life at work at home in the car at the store, with friends, still be His bride!

A Bride is always looking to please her man, this keeps the honeymoon faze going for pretty much two years. But we are to be the bride of the Lord, every second of every moment of every day!!! We look to please our man, and the great thing is? The husband is so appreciative of the Brides love for Him and devotion to want to please Him, He does the same thing for her.

Our relationship with the Lord goes only as deep as we make it to be. If we are aloof He will be aloof. If we are shy, He will be shy of us. If we are angry? He will be angry with us.

I will only make my relationship with the Lord deeper closer and clearer every day. I am not shy to say He is my Lord and king, I shout it practically. I want everyone everywhere to love the Lord our God, as much as He loves us.
We would see an amazing thing take place if there was revival of the fear and love and devotion to the Lord that we should have, without being told by anyone, because we should be in the word to the nth degree. Eating the word, swallowing it whole, gulps of it!

We need to live in the truth fully, or we are not His. He has two churches in the book of Revelation that He has no rebuke for5 churches He tells repent or else he will take away their part from the kingdom of God.
Of the two churches that there was no rebuke for? One of them will suffer greatly in the end times. Many will be jailed and many will be killed. One church is so deeply devoted to God that she will walk unscathed, through the tribulation, the church of Philadelphia.

I asked the Father show me Lord this church of Philadelphia, what do these people look like? How do we live this life to be protected through the tribulation? He said Psalm 91! I read it, I cried! It is not a long read, it is something that should have each word savored, and weighed carefully, for the full measure to sink in, of these amazing promises of God, to His deeply devoted Bride, who lives in the secret place of the Lord.

Man that was a run on sentence! But it needed to be said that way.

He showed me a great vision one night of those walking in His shadow, and how evil could not even see them, but the second they looked out, they took their eyes off Jesus? Evil saw them peeking out, and snatched them up, ate them up!! It was a horrifying vision, part of the worst one i have ever had.

I want to learn now how to walk in Him so deeply, that I am hidden from evil! That takes devotion to His every desire of you. Which church of the 7 in Revelation do you spiritually fit into?

Are you just barely scraping by on the fringes of a relationship with Him? Maybe you are into Him a lot, but are doing things no pure deeply living in Him child would do?
Or are you the laodicean church who says eh we are secure we know no way to lose out on God i said a prayer i’m good i have need of nothing i am rich in Him, whom He will spit out of His mouth?

Examine those churches see what they are like, and then choose the church you want to fit into spiritually, and pray to be of that church!!

Learn the word of the Lord people for yourselves. No man’s understanding is the same as yours. Our personal relationship with God is our own tailor made for us, each individual! We are all different and unique and think differently, but God reads our thoughts all the time.

God knows how to reach you so deeply so tenderly you can’t help but fall in love with Him, and be devoted to Him entirely, and walk in a security that cannot be shaken. His love surrounding you coming out of your pores, towards other people and yourself? There is no feeling on earth that can come close to touching that feeling.

We do not live by feelings But when God gives you feelings of a certain kind, man oh man it’s always earth shattering, and addicting. I MUST HAVE MORE!!

The Law Is Death, We Are Not Under The Law

posted by PrayerWarrior

As I was hearing from the Lord about doing this article I cannot tell you how many people came after me about this very subject I knew for sure the Lord wanted this done and now! I have not written for my blog for a long time but have found I just must do this now, as it was insane how inundated I have been by attacks for my not doing the law.

We are not under the law, we cannot be saved nor sanctified by the law. As a matter of fact those who have put themselves under the law again, have fallen from grace!! Gal 5:4 Here are some great scriptures to explain this understanding!

Acts 15:10, Now therefore why tempt ye God, to put a yoke upon the neck of the disciples, which neither our fathers nor we were able to bear?
Romans 3:20 Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin.
We only ever knew that we were sinning because of the law, which no one ever was able to live up to the standards of the law. Never was there anyone who could do it wholly and or perfectly thus the animal sacrifices and the times the Lord had set for the people to atone for their sins by the shedding of blood.

Jesus being the pure, sinless, flawless, unblemished, perfect lamb of God, was the one time only needed sacrifice, to free us from the letter of the law which was itself flawed. The law was just a foreshadowing of Our need for the Savior. Jesus work on the cross has set those who have accepted His sacrifice, and have repented of their sin and continually walk in contrition and repentance, free!

Romans 4:14-15 For if they which are of the law be heirs, faith is made void, and the promise made of none effect: 15 because the law worketh wrath: for where no law is, there is no transgression. See here? If we continue to act out the law and hold ourselves up to the standard of the law, then grace is worthless and Jesus work was not according to you, enough to atone for your sins.
Romans 5:20 Moreover the law entered, that the offence might abound. But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound:
Romans 6:14 For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace. How do people really fool themselves into thinking that this does not mean what it says? Unless the Lord says this is a parable it is meant to be taken literally.

Romans 7:1-12, Know ye not, brethren, (for I speak to them that know the law,) how that the law hath dominion over a man as long as he liveth? 2 For the woman which hath an husband is bound by the law to her husband so long as he liveth; but if the husband be dead, she is loosed from the law of her husband. 3 So then if, while her husband liveth, she be married to another man, she shall be called an adulteress: but if her husband be dead, she is free from that law; so that she is no adulteress, though she be married to another man.

{I just have to add here, to those who were divorced before they became a Christian, When you repented and were baptized in the water, you died with Christ to your old life, and were born anew into the life of Christ, that life before your true repentant conversion, does not exist further. You are no longer alive to self, but now alive in Christ, as Gal 2:20 says no longer I who lives but Christ who lives in me. So the old you with it’s past sins died as surely as if your body were put in the grave!}

4 Wherefore, my brethren, ye also are become dead to the law by the body of Christ; that ye should be married to another, even to him who is raised from the dead, that we should bring forth fruit unto God. 5 For when we were in the flesh, the motions of sins, which were by the law, did work in our members to bring forth fruit unto death. 6 But now we are delivered from the law, that being dead wherein we were held; that we should serve in newness of spirit, and not in the oldness of the letter.

7 What shall we say then? Is the law sin? God forbid. Nay, I had not known sin, but by the law: for I had not known lust, except the law had said, Thou shalt not covet. 8 But sin, taking occasion by the commandment, wrought in me all manner of concupiscence. For without the law sin was dead. 9 For I was alive without the law once: but when the commandment came, sin revived, and I died. 10 And the commandment, which was ordained to life, I found to be unto death. 11 For sin, taking occasion by the commandment, deceived me, and by it slew me. 12 Wherefore the law is holy, and the commandment holy, and just, and good.

It goes on to say that even though men had the law they kept sinning anyway, the law is to show that we need the savior because we cannot live up to the law. Paul was showing us in verses 13 through to the end, that in himself he could not do the law even though he wanted to do the law he could not for the things he did not want to do (not sin) he did anyway, and the things he did want to do he did not do in his own strength. But thank God for Christ who can do it all without sinning.

Romans 8:2-3 2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death. 3 For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh:

Romans 10:1-4 Brethren, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for Israel is that they may be saved. 2 For I bear them witness that they have a zeal for God, but not according to knowledge. 3 For they being ignorant of God’s righteousness, and seeking to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted to the righteousness of God. 4 For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes.

See the above? Christ put an end to the law. His finished work on the cross fulfilled the requirements of the law. It is finished is what He said! Meaning I have done all that needed to be done in order to save my people to bring them back into a close personal relationship with myself, that i may save them. He wrote now the laws on our hearts and without having to outwardly do them, we automatically know without being told how to live up to God’s standards by surrendering our lives to the Lord to be Lord over our lives to reign in every part of our lives.

Paul was hoping and pleading for Israel to become saved, not by doing the law which no man could do but by accepting Christ, that they might be saved not to go back and do the law but to move forward in Christ’s body. Okay the Lord just said to me this very simple thing, if Christ is the head of the body and you are a part of the body why are you contrarily not allowing Christ the head, to lead the body? Why is Christ the head on the body with the brain, not then allowed to control all members of that body?

He is sinless He is righteous, He is perfect and it is no longer you who lives, {an island separate from the rest of the body, which belongs to Christ} but we are all to walk as one in Him. He does not do the Law, He is the law, He is the word. So our freedom from the law comes by walking in Him. He is the Sabbath rest, walking in Him makes us keeping the Sabbath without outwardly observing one day. Besides which, I personally feel every single day that I am worshiping Him and loving Him, no one day is holier than any other!

1 Corinthians 15:56 The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law.
2 Corinthians 3:7 But if the ministration of death, written and engraved in stone, was glorious, so that the children of Israel could not steadfastly behold the face of Moses for the glory of his countenance; which glory was to be done away: 8 How shall not the ministration of the spirit be rather more glorious?

2 Corinthians 3:9-11, 14,15, For if the ministration of condemnation be glory, much more doth the ministration of righteousness exceed in glory.10 For even that which was made glorious had no glory in this respect, by reason of the glory that excelleth. 11 For if that which is done away was glorious, much more that which remaineth is glorious.
14 but their minds were blinded: for until this day remaineth the same veil untaken away in the reading of the old testament; which veil is done away in Christ. 15 But even unto this day, when Moses is read, the veil is upon their heart.
Do you supposed Christian who is under the law by your own choosing, have that veil upon your heart? You do! You are blinding yourself to truth! Repent of your not believing Christ was and is enough!

Galatians 2:16 knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified., 19 For I through the law am dead to the law, that I might live unto God! Gal 2:21 I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain.
Galatians 3:1-4,10-13 O foolish Galatians, who hath bewitched you, that ye should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ hath been evidently set forth, crucified among you? 2 This only would I learn of you, Received ye the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith? 3 Are ye so foolish? having begun in the Spirit, are ye now made perfect by the flesh? 4 Have ye suffered so many things in vain? if it be yet in vain.

10 For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse: for it is written, Cursed is every one that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them. 11 But that no man is justified by the law in the sight of God, it is evident: for, The just shall live by faith. 12 And the law is not of faith: but, The man that doeth them shall live in them. 13 Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree:

Gal 3:16-19, 16 Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ. 17 And this I say, that the covenant, that was confirmed before of God in Christ, the law, which was four hundred and thirty years after, cannot disannul, that it should make the promise of none effect. 18 For if the inheritance be of the law, it is no more of promise: but God gave it to Abraham by promise. 19 Wherefore then serveth the law? It was added because of transgressions, till the seed should come to whom the promise was made; and it was ordained by angels in the hand of a mediator. This shows us and means Abraham was promised all of the land He was promised the earth as His inheritance, not because of the law, but because he believed the Lord when He spoke to him.

Gal 3:21-29 Is the law then against the promises of God? God forbid: for if there had been a law given which could have given life, verily righteousness should have been by the law. 23 But before faith came, we were kept under the law, shut up unto the faith which should afterwards be revealed. 24 Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith.
25 But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster. 26 For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. 27 For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. 28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. 29 And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.

Galatians 5:1-4 Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage. 2 Behold, I Paul say unto you, that if ye be circumcised, Christ shall profit you nothing. 3 For I testify again to every man that is circumcised, that he is a debtor to do the whole law. 4 Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law; ye are fallen from grace.
Ephesians 2:15 having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace;

Philippians 3:4-8, 4 Though I might also have confidence in the flesh. If any other man thinketh that he hath whereof he might trust in the flesh, I more: 5 circumcised the eighth day, of the stock of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, an Hebrew of the Hebrews; as touching the law, a Pharisee; 6 concerning zeal, persecuting the church; touching the righteousness which is in the law, blameless. 7 But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ. 8 Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ,

1 Timothy 1:8-11 But we know that the law is good, if a man use it lawfully; 9 knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers, 10 for whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind, for menstealers, for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine; 11 according to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, which was committed to my trust.

Hebrews 7:16-19 who is made, not after the law of a carnal commandment, but after the power of an endless life. 17 For he testifieth, Thou art a priest forever after the order of Melchisedec. 18 For there is verily a disannulling of the commandment going before for the weakness and unprofitableness thereof. 19 For the law made nothing perfect, but the bringing in of a better hope did; by the which we draw nigh unto God.

Hebrews 8:7-8 For if that first covenant had been faultless, then should no place have been sought for the second. 8 For finding fault with them, he saith, Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah: He was talking about His death and resurrection!
Heb 8:13 In that he saith, A new covenant, he hath made the first old. Now that which decayeth and waxeth old is ready to vanish away. Heb 10:1 For the law having a shadow of good things to come, and not the very image of the things, can never with those sacrifices which they offered year by year continually make the comers thereunto perfect.

To try and keep the laws is foolishness of the highest order. We are shown repeatedly through Paul the apostle to the gentiles, that the law is not good. James Tells us if you transgress one part of the law, lie steal cheat do the Sabbath wrong, then you are guilty of transgressing the whole of the law, and are then guilty of it all. Look the word tells us over and over again that the law is for those who are not in the Lord they will be held to the standards of the law but not those who are in Christ. Jesus justifies us not the law. Jesus stands before the Father and says can’t hold one sin against this one he/she is mine! I paid the price for them.

All this said friends, that does not however give us the right to go and sin for if we willfully sin that is considered walking all over the son of God and you will be repaid! It remains that those who walk all over the son will burn for eternity. Is eternity worth it to you to be wrong? You might instead of seeking men’s thoughts and ideas about the Lord and all of His teaching in the word, seek the lord in prayer. Always asking for forgiveness of your sins that your prayers may be heard!

Blessings in the Lord

Just As It Was In The Day Of Noah, and Lot

posted by PrayerWarrior

In Matthew 24 The Lord Jesus speaks of the times of Noah, and the end being just like that, yet people disregard Jesus words and pass it off like it is some sort of nothingness. Shouldn’t we as His own believe the Lord above all? In Luke 17 Jesus says just as it was in the days of Lot so shall it be when He returns. Don’t people notice the truth of the word of God, when the Lord our God in the form of the Son, speaks to us? Why would anyone think the Lord has changed? Why would the lord do anything different in a different time if the Lord our God is never changing?

Let’s take a look first, at the Genesis account of Noah and then Lot. Let’s see what happened and when it all happened so that we may inform ourselves on this important matter. Gen 6:5 Then the Lord 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. 6 And the Lord was sorry that He had made man on the earth, and He was grieved in His heart. 7 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.” 8 But Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord.

Noah Pleases God
9 This is the genealogy of Noah. Noah was a just man, perfect in his generations. Noah walked with God. 10 And Noah begot three sons: Shem, Ham, and Japheth. 11 The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence. 12 So God looked upon the earth, and indeed it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted their way on the earth. 13 And God said to Noah, “The end of all flesh has come before Me, for the earth is filled with violence through them; and behold, I will destroy them with the earth. 14 Make yourself an ark of gopherwood; make rooms in the ark, and cover it inside and outside with pitch.

15 And this is how you shall make it: The length of the ark shall be three hundred cubits, its width fifty cubits, and its height thirty cubits. 16 You shall make a window for the ark, and you shall finish it to a cubit from above; and set the door of the ark in its side. You shall make it with lower, second, and third decks. 17 And behold, I Myself am bringing floodwaters on the earth, to destroy from under heaven all flesh in which is the breath of life; everything that is on the earth shall die. 18 But I will establish My covenant with you; and you shall go into the ark—you, your sons, your wife, and your sons’ wives with you.

19 And of every living thing of all flesh you shall bring two of every sort into the ark, to keep them alive with you; they shall be male and female. 20 Of the birds after their kind, of animals after their kind, and of every creeping thing of the earth after its kind, two of every kind will come to you to keep them alive. 21 And you shall take for yourself of all food that is eaten, and you shall gather it to yourself; and it shall be food for you and for them.” 22 Thus Noah did; according to all that God commanded him, so he did.

Gen 7:1 Then the Lord said to Noah, “Come into the ark, you and all your household, because I have seen that you are righteous before Me in this generation. 2 You shall take with you seven each of every clean animal, a male and his female; two each of animals that are unclean, a male and his female; 3 also seven each of birds of the air, male and female, to keep the species alive on the face of all the earth. 4 For after seven more days I will cause it to rain on the earth forty days and forty nights, and I will destroy from the face of the earth all living things that I have made.” 5 And Noah did according to all that the Lord commanded him. 6 Noah was six hundred years old when the floodwaters were on the earth.

7 So Noah, with his sons, his wife, and his sons’ wives, went into the ark because of the waters of the flood. 8 Of clean animals, of animals that are unclean, of birds, and of everything that creeps on the earth, 9 two by two they went into the ark to Noah, male and female, as God had commanded Noah. 10 And it came to pass after seven days that the waters of the flood were on the earth. 11 In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, on that day all the fountains of the great deep were broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened. 12 And the rain was on the earth forty days and forty nights.

Now look at that on the seventh day Noah entered the ark, on that DAY the flood waters came and the fountains of the great deep were opened up! This is so very important to pay attention to that is why I made the word day all in capitals. Let’s look at it a little more with the next set of verses. 13 On the very same day Noah and Noah’s sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth, and Noah’s wife and the three wives of his sons with them, entered the ark— 14 they and every beast after its kind, all cattle after their kind, every creeping thing that creeps on the earth after its kind, and every bird after its kind, every bird of every sort. 15 And they went into the ark to Noah, two by two, of all flesh in which is the breath of life. 16 So those that entered, male and female of all flesh, went in as God had commanded him; and the Lord shut him in.

17 Now the flood was on the earth forty days. The waters increased and lifted up the ark, and it rose high above the earth. 18 The waters prevailed and greatly increased on the earth, and the ark moved about on the surface of the waters. 19 And the waters prevailed exceedingly on the earth, and all the high hills under the whole heaven were covered. 20 The waters prevailed fifteen cubits upward, and the mountains were covered. 21 And all flesh died that moved on the earth: birds and cattle and beasts and every creeping thing that creeps on the earth, and every man.

22 All in whose nostrils was the breath of the spirit of life, all that was on the dry land, died. 23 So He destroyed all living things which were on the face of the ground: both man and cattle, creeping thing and bird of the air. They were destroyed from the earth. Only Noah and those who were with him in the ark remained alive. 24 And the waters prevailed on the earth one hundred and fifty days.

Now the Lord Jesus said in Matthew 24:37-39 37 But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. 38 For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the (“day”) that Noah entered the ark, 39 and did not know until the flood came and took them all away, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. So the Lord is telling us on the very same day that Noah and his family entered the ark the protection of the Lord, or his snatching them out of harms way, was the very same day His wrath was poured out on the unbelievers and evil men. Not 7 years later, not even a day later, but on the very same day that Noah and his family were shut into the ark, the wrath was poured out.

Let’s also now look at the Genesis account of Lot’s story. Gen 19:15 When the morning dawned, the angels urged Lot to hurry, saying, “Arise, take your wife and your two daughters who are here, lest you be consumed in the punishment of the city.” 16 And while he lingered, the men took hold of his hand, his wife’s hand, and the hands of his two daughters, the Lord being merciful to him, and they brought him out and set him outside the city. 17 So it came to pass, when they had brought them outside, that he said, “Escape for your life! Do not look behind you nor stay anywhere in the plain. Escape to the mountains, lest you be destroyed.”

18 Then Lot said to them, “Please, no, my lords! 19 Indeed now, your servant has found favor in your sight, and you have increased your mercy which you have shown me by saving my life; but I cannot escape to the mountains, lest some evil overtake me and I die. 20 See now, this city is near enough to flee to, and it is a little one; please let me escape there (is it not a little one?) and my soul shall live.” 21 And he said to him, “See, I have favored you concerning this thing also, in that I will not overthrow this city for which you have spoken. 22 Hurry, escape there. For I cannot do anything until you arrive there.”

23 The sun had risen upon the earth when Lot entered Zoar. 24 Then the Lord rained brimstone and fire on Sodom and Gomorrah, from the Lord out of the heavens. 25 So He overthrew those cities, all the plain, all the inhabitants of the cities, and what grew on the ground. 26 But his wife looked back behind him, and she became a pillar of salt. 27 And Abraham went early in the morning to the place where he had stood before the Lord. 28 Then he looked toward Sodom and Gomorrah, and toward all the land of the plain; and he saw, and behold, the smoke of the land which went up like the smoke of a furnace. 29 And it came to pass, when God destroyed the cities of the plain, that God remembered Abraham, and sent Lot out of the midst of the overthrow, when He overthrew the cities in which Lot had dwelt.

Now again we see that on the very same day that Lot left Sodom and Gomorrah, that was when the angels who went to save Lot, were able to destroy the two cities of filth and dishonor. People love to lie to themselves and think that this Sodom and Gomorrah were not destroyed due to their gay ways, but that is why it is called sodomy, because it was first done there in Sodom and Gomorrah. They wanted to have sex with the angels. Though God is the one who rained down fire and brimstone from heaven.

Now let’s take a look at what Jesus had to say about Lot, and when the wrath of God was poured out on Sodom and Gomorrah also. Luke 17:28 Likewise as it was also in the days of Lot: They ate, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they built; 29 (“but on the day”) that Lot went out of Sodom, it rained fire and brimstone from heaven and destroyed them all. 30 Even so will it be in the day when the Son of Man is revealed. Over and over again we see that the day of the Lord is one day. It is only one day and one day only.

Look in Zechariah 14:7 (“It shall be one day”) Which is known to the Lord— Neither day nor night.
But at evening time it shall happen That it will be light. People again convince themselves of all sorts of errors. It really is a very strange and sad thing to notice how often people will mislead themselves even to be able to believe the lies of men. The sad truth is this, many people will stand before the lord on the second judgment after the millennial kingdom, and will be told I never knew you depart from me you who are iniquity, Matt 7:21-23.

If we do not know the truth of the Lord our God by His word, then we do not know the Lord, and He does not know us! Please make sure you are not believing lies of satan, passed onto you by men who are deceived by satan themselves. We must at all times be like the Bereans in Acts 17:11. These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.

The word will either prove out the truth or the lies. But the word itself must be searched. I do not mean, read one verse no no. I mean you must search out the concept and the meaning of the verse used. I mean read two verses before the verse used, and two after the verse used to capture what the Lord means. 9 times out of ten your going to find the truth of the matter. Unless of course you want to see the lies of men and satan. Then you will somehow convince yourself that you see what the liars are saying, written in the word.

To sum up this message, what I can clearly see here is this, The very same day that God takes up the dead in Christ, and those who are alive and made into immortal perfect incorruptible flesh, is the same day that His wrath will be poured out, through Jesus Christ!! He pointedly gave me these verses the other morning as I was waking up. It was important enough to him to give me these verses and understanding’s not that I need them but that some out there need them to see and hear the truth from the Lord and His word, which is Jesus Christ!

John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. Jesus was God and is still God!

The War In Heaven

posted by PrayerWarrior

Satan Thrown Out of Heaven
I want to address the war that will be taking place in heaven, at the midway mark of the 7 last years. At that time at the 3.5 year time mark, the antichrist will stand in the temple and call himself God. I am quite sure as well that this is when the war in heaven takes place and I plan in this article, and video to show just why I understand it this way.The war in heaven is not a huge amount of information but it has all the points we need to pay attention to, in it. Jesus makes reference to it in Matt 24 and also makes reference to Daniel’s prophecies. I will show how they correlate with one another.For most bible references I use the NKJV, and the KJV. I have used the Amplified bible and the NASB.

 

Matt 24:15 “Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place” (whoever reads, let him understand), 16 “then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains. 17 Let him who is on the housetop not go down to take anything out of his house. 18 And let him who is in the field not go back to get his clothes. 19 But woe to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing babies in those days! 20 And pray that your flight may not be in winter or on the Sabbath. 21 For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be. See Jesus says the same exact thing as Daniel, about this being a time like has never been before.

 

This is all when Michael stands up. I want to look at this from Pauls perspective as well. He was also taken to heaven and shown the end He tells us this in 2 Corinthians 12. 2. But let’s look at  Thess 2:3-7 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshiped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God. Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things? And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time. For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. Or till Michael stands up to satan and throws him out of Heaven. Until the time of the war in heaven the antichrist will not be revealed. No one will know for sure who he is. Let’s go on with Rev 12.

 

Revelation 12:7-9 And war broke out in heaven: Michael and his angels fought with the dragon; and the dragon and his angels fought, 8 but they did not prevail, nor was a place found for them in heaven any longer. 9 So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was cast to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. So now satan is come to the earth at this time. Will he inhabit his antichrist? I am Not sure really, but we know that there is great power in the antichrist, he deceives many, and we know he comes back to life around this time too. I imagine it is a parody of Christs resurrection as well. Knowing that satan loves making a mockery of all God has done, helps me to believe this is the case.

 

Revelation 13:11-14 let’s look at the deadly wound healed on the beast. 11 Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns like a lamb and spoke like a dragon.<<<(The false Prophet, looks like a lamb the Hadith = book of eschatology of Muslims, calls this person Jesus) 12 And he exercises all the authority of the first beast in his presence, and causes the earth and those who dwell in it to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. 13 He performs great signs, so that he even makes fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men. 14 And he deceives those who dwell on the earth by those signs which he was granted to do in the sight of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who was wounded by the sword and lived. This is all at the halfway point of the last 7 years. The oblations or sacrifices are stopped when the armies surround jerusalem, then the antichrist calls himself God in the temple.

 

Let’s go on though as we were, and finish up with Chapter 12 of Revelation. Rev 12:10-12,  Then I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, “Now salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren, who accused them before our God day and night, has been cast down. 11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death. 12 Therefore rejoice, O heavens, and you who dwell in them! Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and the sea! For the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, because he knows that he has a short time.” In this I see Jesus words to flee from Jerusalem when the a/c stands in the temple calling himself god and demanding worship.

 

The Woman Persecuted Rev 12:13-17
13 Now when the dragon saw that he had been cast to the earth, he persecuted the woman who gave birth to the male Child (Unbelieving Israel). 14 But the woman was given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness to her place, where she is nourished for a time and times and half a time, from the presence of the serpent. 15 So the serpent spewed water out of his mouth like a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away by the flood. 16 But the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened its mouth and swallowed up the flood which the dragon had spewed out of his mouth. 17 And the dragon was enraged with the woman, and he went to make war with the rest of her offspring, who keep the commandments of God (To love Himself and each other) and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.This is also spoken of (the protection of this woman) in verse 6 of chp 12 of Rev. 6 Then the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by God, that they should feed her there one thousand two hundred and sixty days.

 

I also believe that is when the seals begin to be opened. The antichrist will be in power for a short 3.5 years, or 1260 days, the same amount of time that the Jews are nourished and hidden in the wilderness. The antichrist the rider on the white horse, seems to be a man of peace and for non Christians he will be, but for Jews and Christians woe to us woe. The antichrist comes on a white horse with a bow and no arrows in his quiver.  He comes conquering and to conquer, he will have that power only when he is resurrected from the dead by satan. He will have that power only because Michael is no longer holding back satans power. Once the war in heaven happens Michael is no longer restraining evil, or keeping it at bay.

 

Now in that set of verses  Rev 12:6 and 12:14 I see clearly a remnant being hidden and protected in the desert, or wilderness, or wherever it may be that God has in mind to hide the remnant, for the 3.5 years of the great tribulation, as is seen clearly in verse 6, and 14 she is cared for. God has always had a remnant of Jews always has and always will, till there is no need. It all has to do with the promise to Abraham to make more people than the sands of the sea, through him. Then the rest who hold the testimony of Jesus, that is Christians that satan goes to make war with. This is when the mark of the beast will be implemented, and carried out with deadly force. We will look at those other verses that explain all of this a little later. Many say no the Jews cannot be alive and or will have come to Christ. No not those hidden away in the desert my friends. When they see Christ coming on the clouds with power and great glory their eyes will be fully opened.

 

I have a point to make here and it is about the two commandments God has for us in the new covenant.  (Jesus tells us that love covers a multitude of sins in, Matt 22:37-40 Jesus said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ 38 This is the first and great commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ 40 On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.” See just two covers it all. because if you Love God your going to do all you can to please Him and if you love your fellow man, you are doing what you are commanded to do as well. Love will not bring harm of any kind to another.)

 

I have seen that many people cannot make a distinction here in this set of verses, Rev 12:6 and 14, but to me it is very clear and simple to understand. God allows the saints those who accepted Christ, and who follow His commandments to love God and others as we love ourselves, these are they who are Christians, as we began to be called in the book of Acts. What does Christ-ians mean? It means little Christs. We were first called Christians in Acts 11:19-26. We will go through fiery trials to be chastened and purified. Paul tells us this truth, that through much tribulation will we enter the KINGDOM OF GOD. Acts 14:22

 

There are plenty of verses that tell us the Jews will mourn as though over their first born.  Zech 12:10 And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced , and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn. They will repent at that time. Then also we know from many verses that the Jews will be those who mostly repopulate the earth in the millennial kingdom. Look at this set of facts. Jews will not be raptured because they do not believe in Christ. God told Abraham it was his direct seed who will populate the earth to more than the sands of the sea. Someone has to be alive for this, and whom God has blinded on purpose, (which we know till the times of the gentiles be fulfilled they are blinded) He will not hold them as accountable as if they were allowed to see and totally rejected Him anyway.

 

I believe because they repent and mourn to the very core of them, those whom the Lord has hidden away in that time, will be forgiven and taught the ways of the Messiah. God blinded them on purpose until the time of the gentiles be fulfilled. Romans 11:25-27: For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fullness of the Gentiles be come in. And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob: For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins. Paul also warned the Romans against being lifted up in pride because they had been favored by God with salvation. He explained the mystery that the blindness of Israel would not last forever. He told them that this condition would only last until “the fullness of the Gentiles be come in.” Then he explained that all of Israel, that existed when the fullness of the Gentiles was completed, would be saved. He went on in the chapter to explain that God first concluded the Gentiles in unbelief so that He might have mercy on the Gentiles. He then explained that the Jews are now consigned to unbelief, so that He might have mercy on the Jews. He summarizes his discourse in Romans 11:32 – For God hath concluded them all in unbelief, that he might have mercy upon all. Revelation 1:7 also speaks of they who pierced him mourning.

 

I want to give a little background on who is the antichrist what area he will come from and it is not Rome! First of all the Romans did rule for a long time a very large tract of the middle east, but it was not they who destroyed the temple, it was the Flavians. In Daniel, it speaks of the man who will come and he is a northern middle east personality. So Turkish, Assyrian area is how I see it. The Assyrian from the tribe of Dan is how it is explained by some people, and this just rings true in my spirit. We are told in Genesis that Dan is a snake an adder, and comes from the North. Let’s look at that. “Dan shall judge his people, as one of the tribes of Israel. 17 Dan shall be a serpent by the way, an adder in the path, that biteth the horse heels, so that his rider shall fall backward. 18 I have waited for thy salvation, O Lord.” (Genesis 49:16-18)

 

Then let’s look at some more verses that explain this a little further. “There is one come out of thee,[Nineveh] that imagineth evil against the Lord, a wicked counsellor.” (Nahum 1:11) Then “And this man shall be the peace, when the Assyrian shall come into our land: and when he shall tread in our palaces, then shall we raise against him seven shepherds, and eight principal men.” (Micah 5:5) then in Daniel we see he comes from the North.”Therefore the he goat waxed very great: and when he was strong, the great horn was broken; and from it came up four notable ones toward the four winds of heaven. 9 And out of one of them came forth a little horn, which waxed exceeding great, toward the south, and toward the east, and toward the pleasant land.” (Daniel 8:8-9)

 

The Prophet Jeremiah also said that the antichrist would invade through the tribe of Dan. “The snorting of his horses was heard from Dan: the whole land trembled at the sound of the neighing of his strong ones; for they are come, and have devoured the land, and all that is in it; the city, and those that dwell therein.” (Jeremiah 8:16) We know this has not ocurred as of yet, it shows up nowhere in History. Also many people believe that the war in heaven has occurred already, but it has not as satan still goes back and forth accusing the brethren before God. Also the book of Revelation none of it has occurred as of yet with the exception maybe and this is just a maybe, as we do not know for sure as of yet, if the Judgment of the Ekklesia, the house of God, has begun. I personally think that it has been happening over the last year as all of the hard core true Christians I know, have been going through the toughest times of their lives. Physical, emotional, spiritual, and financial woes have plagued those who seek the Lord diligently. Those who study to show themselves approved and who know that there are wolves in sheeps clothing leading the many straight down the path of hell.

 

I am continually astonished at those who refuse to see the word of God just for itself, but instead seek out men and their interpretation of the word. I have had an argument with a man recently on youtube, who just cannot get it through his head, that I refuse to listen to men, and when I gave him the verse in 1 John 2:27 which says that we have no need that men teach us, he wrote a whole entire article on his blog, trying to disabuse people from knowing that they were anointed with the same Holy Spirit as any of the teachers in this modern day so called church. I have disdain for the word church because it is a misinterpreted word. Ekklesia is the word used for church and the word Ekklesia in Greek means called out ones chosen, or the elect.

 

We are all to be anointed and made into disciples as the apostles were doing. They were first discipled by Christ, then they were told to go out and make disciples of the nations, that is our great commission. Each and every person who is in the Lord and believes on the truth, are disciples, and it is all of our job to go out and make disciples of the world. How can we do that if we are not imbued with the power of the Holy Spirit, the power that raised Christ from the dead, ourselves? The dictionaries of today make no distinction between apostle and or disciple. The Greek language however makes a distinction. Strongs Greek for Apostolos #652 a messenger, envoy, delegate, one commissioned by another to represent him in some way, especially a man sent out by Jesus Christ Himself to preach the Gospel; an apostle.

 

Then we have the Greek word for Disciple, Strongs Greek #3101 mathétés a learner, pupil. These in turn go about learning the ways of the Lord and then go out teaching others the same things they learned. Healing casting out demons speaking in other tongues, prophesying, words of knowledge wisdom discerning spirits, and so on and so forth. We have a wonderful brother in Christ named Torben, Torben is taking brand new disciples and making them into disciplers themselves right away. You can find Torbens amazing truth speaking teaching videos on you tube at The Last Reformation channel. In the times coming Daniel tells us 12:3 Those who are wise shall shine like the brightness of the firmament, and those who turn many to righteousness like the stars forever and ever. Again I have to say that we none of us can be disciples nor make disciples if the Holy Spirit is not here in the end times.

 

Also let’s look at Daniel 12:1 “At that time Michael shall stand up, The great prince who stands watch over the sons of your people; And there shall be a time of trouble, Such as never was since there was a nation, Even to that time. And at that time your people shall be delivered, Every one who is found written in the book. So I want to understand completely and I want all of you who hear to understand as well. Michael is the restrainer, there is no doubt in my mind, because as soon as he stands up, there will be times of trouble the likes of which has never been before. Michael we know from Daniels earlier writings, is a great prince he is the most powerful arch angel, and it is his job to watch over the people of the Lord, that does include Christians people.

 

As soon as we become born again, we are grafted into the olive tree. We know when He stands up when the antichrist shows himself as god and demands worship the mark will be implemented on the earth. There will be no buying or selling without that mark of the beast, we will be hunted down and many killed. We will know that the war in heaven has occurred because satan comes down and takes out his wrath on the inhabitants of the earth. He chases after the Israeli’s first and when that does not work, because they are supernaturally protected, then the saints who hold to the testimony of Jesus Christ will be in the sites of satan. This is very important to us as we will certainly be here for it.

 

Normally I like to find all of the old testament scriptures to go along with the New testament scriptures to my amazement though there really are no Old Testament scriptures to go along with the book of Revelation and the war that takes place in heaven. I know that the war in heaven has not taken place as of yet for a couple of reasons, but the biggest reason is that Jesus told John that these are things which are yet to take place and that was after Jerusalem and the temple were already destroyed. John was given the Revelation sometime after all the other apostles were dead and that has to have been after 86 AD. Some say he died around 100 AD some say he died around 90 AD. We know it was a while after the others. Rev 1:1-3 1 The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave Him to show His servants—things which must shortly take place. And He sent and signified it by His angel to His servant John, 2 who bore witness to the word of God, and to the testimony of Jesus Christ, to all things that he saw. 3 Blessed is he who reads and those who hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written in it; for the time is near.

 

See those things to come!!! But notice something else in those verses. Blessed is he who reads and those who hear the words of this prophecy. The only book in the whole bible that comes with a blessing. It must be awfully important to the Lord that we read and adhere to it. We must know the end from the beginning or we will not be prepared and or ready for what is to come. Prophecy is the most important aspect of the word of God, for it is our hope contained in the prophecies. Not only that but we are told in Revelation also that 19:10 And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellow servant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.

 

If you take the spirit of prophecy and eat it up as John did literally, it tastes sweet but makes bitter the tummy, but you will not easily forget it! We tend to remember those things that hurt our bellies. Normally though we stay away from those things, let us never stray far from the prophecies contained in the word for there in lies the spirit of Jesus the spirit of prophecy. I have people ask me all the time but how can you just study prophecy so much and only that? But honestly how do you only study prophecy? I mean in order to study the prophecies you must study the entire word! It is impossible to study only prophecy. In order to get to the prophecies you must study from one end of the word to the other! So you get to know everything in between as well.

 

Also there is some new false garbage going on by of all people John MacArthur and Brannon Howse, that you can take the mark of the beast and still go to heaven and have eternity with Christ! I beg to differ as does the book of Revelation. The book of Revelation in chapter 14:9-11 clearly states,9 And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, 10 The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: 11 And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.

 

Blessings  to you all in Christ,

Tammy
