Victor

These days the devil is very busy running around trying to see who he can steal from, kill or destroy and we need to stand strong against him! Jesus died for us and took the punishment due us in all areas of our lives. We have also been MADE righteous in God by what Christ did for us.

I have noticed that the enemy likes to point fingers and condemn and tell you how you are to blame for whatever is happening, as if he were righteous himself. (What a joke that is for he is THE CHIEF of sinners having rejected God himself! It’s why he got kicked out of heaven! Pride in himself was his downfall.)
He was defeated at the cross by the blood of Jesus and Jesus became a curse for us so that we wouldn’t have to be cursed. Jesus took our sin, sickness and diseases and poverty too.
When the devil tries to steal from you he will make things look and feel true(according to his own agenda for you) and feed you lies so that he can insert his evil into your life.
Watch out for those little thoughts of WHY something is happening for most likely they are coming straight from him.
For the last year and a half I’ve had nothing but extreme warfare, but I’m starting to get a handle on how the enemy works! Bit by bit he wants us to swallow his lies without questioning them.
It DOES NOT matter what things feel or look like right now, because thru Christ Jesus who died for us we HAVE the VICTORY! We are NOT going to get the Victory in some future time, because we ALREADY have it and Jesus Blood is our guarantee!
Trust God and do not look to the five senses but keep reminding the devil that he has LOST the war 2,000 years ago.
And Daily Remind the enemy that “YOU ARE THE VICTOR!”

Just like Moses

I heard someone this morning make mention of Moses and how Pharaoh found out about God’s plan for a deliverer for Israel. Pharaoh tried to kill off all the Hebrew male children as a result, but Moses was hidden and then put into the Nile in a little boat only to be found by Pharaoh’s Daughter instead and then given back to his mother to be raised by her and all with pay too! Exodus 1-2

And one can also look at the life of Jesus too and see how the enemy tried to thwart His life also. Matthew 2

So no matter what is coming against us presently God will protect us and turn it all around for our good and His Glory! We need to keep this at the forefront of our minds especially when we look at our terrible circumstances etc.

Parable of The Ten Virgins

I experienced a dream on Sept 5 of this month and had a Blond haired lady at a desk with a paper and pen tell me very plainly, “It will happen on the 24th to the 26th of THIS MONTH!” I then awoke and wondered what that could mean, so I decided to look on my Calendar to see if there were any clues and was very surprised to see that it will be Rosh Hashanah which is also called “The Feast of Trumpets”.
I then decided to look into what the Feast of Trumpets meant on the web and came across this very interesting post here; http://endtimepilgrim.org/tenvirg.htm

Not sure still on the full ramifications of the particular Feast called “Trumpets”, but during some Revival meetings a few weeks ago I was told by the Holy Spirit that it was VERY IMPORTANT to be one of those 5 wise Virgins instead of one of the 5 out of oil ones, for the latter lost out and missed the Bridegroom when He came.

I feel it to be important to maintain a dialogue with the Lord each day and/or night no matter what is happening. I could be mad, happy, sad, disappointed or whatever, but I needed to keep on talking to Him. Too much talk can be a negative thing when with others, but I don’t believe it’s that way with the Lord. At least He will give His feedback and be able to help out if He so desires!

Lessons & Reins

I have spoken about others in my posts before, but I DO CHOOSE to FORGIVE THEM ALL in Jesus Name!
Although I have seen and experienced the faults of others I have some of MY OWN faults as well, and who am I to judge anyone else, for I DON’T fully KNOW others like the Lord does!
I pray these days that my friends would each learn whatever lessons they should have from the one who KNOWS BEST, and that I also learn the lessons that I must learn as well!
I also pray that I would have “the Holy Ghost reins in my life” to PREVENT ME from becoming a fleshly idiot that is NOT motivated by the Spirit of God! I feel the fear of God for if God is allowing the utter bulldozing of my life right now, and I can very much assure you that it is NOT PLEASANT AT ALL He will stop at NOTHING to make us what He wants us to be! I do not want to wind up becoming a type of Saul either nor to displease Him in any way.
So the praying continues for Lessons and Reins!

The Difference Maker

“The Lord does not look at the things man looks at. Man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.” 1 Samuel 16:7

“Then the Lord said, “Rise and anoint him; he is the one.” So Samuel took the horn of oil and anointed him in the presence of his brothers, and from that day on the Spirit of the Lord came upon David in power.” 1 Samuel 16:13
“But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not consider his appearance or his height, for I have rejected him. The Lord does NOT look at the things man looks at. Man looks at THE OUTWARD APPEARANCE, but the Lord looks at the HEART.” 1 Samuel 15:30

We can spend our whole lives following what our eyes, and thoughts tell us, but is it not just our own silly reasoning?! I know for I’ve done it a lot and at the end of the day and even at the end of the year where does it get me? NO WHERE REALLY! And unless the Lord builds the house they labor in VAIN! Psalm 127:1

So I’m now constantly saying to the Lord, “Unless YOU TELL ME SOMETHING I just WON’T KNOW!”
“Invite Jesse to the sacrifice, and I will show you what to do. You are to anoint for me the one I indicate.” 1 Samuel 16:3

Tis interesting that Saul’s name is one vowel away from the word, “Soul!” And because he did not do what the Lord was telling him thru Samuel he ended up being replaced by David.
Pride had also entered in, “Early in the morning Samuel got up and went to meet Saul, but he was told, “Saul has gone to Carmel. There he has set up a monument in his own honor and has turned and gone on down to Gilgal.” 1 Samuel 15:12

Samuel 15:22-23 is the culmination of God’s judgment against Saul and WHY he is being rejected.
So as we proceed into the things of God and the anointing of the Holy Spirit let us remember these warnings continually.
I have felt quite bulldozed for over a year now with NO real answers coming for my health issues, and I do believe that if God wanted to He could’ve just healed me in a few seconds, so why is He allowing it?

As a child my father would have these sayings, “Stand on your own two feet and look big!” and “Pull up yourself by your own bootstraps!” I really CAN’T blame him either, for he got those sayings from his father who was a Troop Commander in the Army (A CQMS in the UK).
The world also teaches us to rely upon our OWN SELVES and dishes that philosophy our daily. We are also rewarded monetarily, and educationally and every other way for our hard work and self reliance!

It suddenly struck me heavily “how evil I had become” and cried out telling the Lord that “I was SO sorry for it all!
Pastor Bill Winston has said the following;
-“Adam was NOT meant to be led by his senses, but by his spirit instead”.
-“Adam became a walking dead man just like people are today! Adam ate of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil so his knowledge all come from his 5 senses instead of the Spirit of God. The enemy likes that for he can control what you see then and you can become deceived by what you see.
-“Jesus came to restore us back to our original mode of operation. 1 Corinthians 2:9-11 Our potential is not in our flesh, but in our spirit. We have to get God’s plan for our lives and not our own. Our minds will not produce a miracle, but the Spirit can!”

And so I am still getting MY LESSONS even though I’ve known the Lord for years! I sense it is a season of preparation for God’s people, and I hope and pray that you are realizing the lessons He is giving you also even if they are NOT the same ones that I am getting.

God Bless you in your own journey into the wonderful things of the Spirit of God, for He will do exceedingly abundantly ABOVE all that we can ever ask or think!

The Church

Sept 7, 2014
I just listened to a Pastor on TV speak on the importance of Church whilst I nodded a polite “No!” to most of what he was saying!
Sadly I couldn’t help it, for the Church has turned into a “One Man Show” whereby all the parts of the body just fill the seats and watch the Pastor do all of the work.
I have known the Lord since 1975 and I’m STILL waiting for a truly ANOINTED and COURAGEOUS man of God to pray over me and ask the Holy Spirit to reveal to me HOW He would like to use me in His Body!

Should not the proper working of the church be one whereby the Pastor is anointed to teach the word for a period of time and then afterwards become

    A Conductor of a Spiritual Orchestra

in which all the rest of the parts do the work?

How will we ever become the true Sons of God if we have NO clue as to Spiritual gifts and the PROPER FUNCTIONING of them? I know someone who uses what they call “their gift of discernment” as a means of exposing everyone’s faults and driving A WEDGE between people in the Body! It has been revealed to me recently that whenever someone shows me any attention she will quickly tell me that “they have an evil spirit of some sort” and that “they are not quite right!” As a result I have had few friends in the Body of Christ for I’ve been AN IDIOT and have listened to her in the past!

Only time spent in God’ Presence at Revival meetings helped to reveal the problem to me, for God just does NOT expose people but His love seeks to COVER them instead! I have asked myself, “Should she not be PRAYING for people who may have problems instead of talking so much about them behind their backs?” And I have felt quite deceived after reading about Gossip in Proverbs and how one should AVOID a Gossiper!

These days I’m realizing the importance of finding out HOW the Holy Spirit would like to use each of us, but we need to be motivated by GOD’S LOVE above all else otherwise we will only end up HURTING each other! And WHY should the Holy Spirit give us any gift if we do that??

As a result of my time spent in Revival I am now looking for a church that trains people to hear God and that fosters the proper use of Spiritual Gifts, for I have sat for far TOO LONG just warming a pew!

How will we EVER GROW UP in the things of God if we don’t use what He has given us?
And it is a lie of the devil to tell folks that the anointing flows from the top down, for that was only true in the OLD TESTAMENT. Now under the NEW COVENANT we have the Holy Spirit that was given to each of us after Jesus went to the Father, and we are now referred to as “kings and priests unto our God” (Rev 5:10). Do a word study in the scriptures and you will find many scriptures to back up what I’m saying here, but if you can’t find them then let me know and I’ll give you a bunch!
All I’m trying to say here is that Jesus DIDN’T just die for me to constantly warm a seat in church! I need to be a FULLY functioning part of His body! And if I’m off base in what I’m saying here then God truly knows HOW TO CORRECT ME!
