Absolutely Whomped on

Matthew 9:37-38 says, “The Harvest is plentiful but the workers are FEW. Ask the Lord of the Harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.”
And look at what was said right before this; Jesus had COMPASSION on them, because they were HARASSED and HELPLESS, like sheep WITHOUT a Shepherd.
And I do remember those days of being harassed and helpless and without a Shepherd who CARED! And I still remember it even today after being a believer for over 36 years, for life without Christ or the love of the Father was like HELL on earth.
It occurred to me that I should not be on the enemy’s hit list for having reached out to people who do NOT know Christ, so I have prayed that He would send out other workers instead. I need to replace myself with 100 other servants in the area I live, because I am just so wrecked health-wise and cannot fulfill my position right now.
In addition I have very little prayer support and have been deceived into keeping away from those in the church due to listening to someone else constantly tell me that this person or that person have “an evil spirit” or are “not quite right” enough!

This stupidity has been going on for YEARS, and I am finally waking up to the fact that I have been isolated and deceived. Meanwhile the person who says that they have the gift of “discerning of spirits” has lots of friends which she complains about OFTEN.
This is frankly NOT the RIGHT use of the spiritual gift for it only drives a WEDGE between people in the Body of Christ. It does NOT create any UNITY but it only creates suspicion!
I would think the PROPER use of the gift would be to pray for people and intercede for them instead, and NOT to be blabbing everyone’s faults around here and there, but to be praying in one’s OWN prayer closet.
For WHO is actually PERFECT? NO ONE except our LORD!
And so we each have to give each other grace, patience and understanding and Christ’s type of Love otherwise we are really just doing HARM to ourselves! For we are ONE BODY! Besides we are to love one another like we love ourselves. And if we can’t love ourselves then we need God to show us HIS love for us personally for He IS LOVE!
As for gossiping, blabbing and backstabbing others we should have all just stopped it long before now. Taking a look in Proverbs one can see many warnings about folks who gossip and tale bare. I have blabbed earlier here but I am NOT going to be naming anyone but only using this as an example and wake up call.
So if we have some problem with someone take it to the Lord FIRST instead! Then you will have a listening ear and get some wisdom and an understanding heart on the matter. You’ll be better able to pray MORE effectively or maybe you’ll end up seeing your own faults too. One thing I know is that Jesus couldn’t stand a Hypocrite and so we need Him to show us if we are one ourselves. And believe me it only does us GOOD in the end to know if we are one, so we can ask forgiveness and change our ways for the Lord will only RESIST us until then.

Patient Endurance & Faithfulness

We are living in the last days and headed towards the “Last Hurrah!” and the Climax of the Ages. If you have NO clue as to what I’m talking about you can read the Chapters of Daniel 7 and Revelation 13-14 in the Bible.
I see my own humanity and frailty already because of what I have gone thru the last 2 years. I have suffered bodily for 23 years due to an illness of which I won’t get into here, but these past 2 years have been even WORSE and I have been tempted to just throw in the towel and give up! And God only knows how many times I’ve complained to Him about it all! (and some of it I’m just saddened by and ashamed of really, but I know that He CAN handle it and that I would’ve been DEAD a long time ago if it were NOT for Him!)

I now realize that the Beast is ALREADY busy upon this earth for there are a lot of folks willing to wag their boastful tongues into the camera for us all to see on our nightly News Hour. They are full of pride and hatred and deception, so it is plainly evident that the Beast is already here doing his thing and stirring up trouble, but the furnace is being slowly turned up and made ready for all those who are just down right evil even though they don’t know they are. (I’m in prayer over this for it just saddens me!)
It occurred to me last night that IF I had known ahead of time all that I would have to go thru on earth I would’ve been just like Jonah saying, “Oh no, I DON’T wish to go there, and I’ll just stay up here instead, for there is too much evil going on down there!”
We are entering into a time whereby we shall all need “Patient Endurance” and “Faithfulness” – see Revelation 13:17&10, so if we are already desiring to give up we have still more garbage to go thru, and who can endure or be faithful unless God Himself empowers us to be so!
And please don’t hide your head in the sand for it shall NOT do you any good or help you in the end, but be in prayer asking to receive from God what you need NOW.
For each of us knows what our own weaknesses are (for the devil is good at pointing them all out too) and so we need help from God to address those areas now instead of later.

And if we wait until later it shall be TOO LATE! Like the 10 Virgins-there were 5 who were READY and 5 who were NOT, so don’t allow yourself to be one of them for they lost out in the end!
Ask God to make you one of those wise virgins who are in sync with Him, for it will be God who will do that for us and NOT ourselves, because “Unless the Lord builds the house the laborers labor in VAIN!” Psalm 127:1,
See also some encouragement here Colossians 1:9-13, Hebrews 13:6-9 and by far there’s much more if you would be willing to humble yourself and crack open your Bible and read it.

And I’m sorry that I don’t have any funny or entertaining message for you today but one of warnings instead, because I’m NOT usually a serious person either! I just see the writing is now “on the wall” and I am just speaking out about it here.

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!”
