Philippians 2 NIV
Imitating Christ’s Humility

2 Therefore if you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any common sharing in the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, 2 then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and of one mind. 3 Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, 4 not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.

5 In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus:

6 Who, being in very nature[a] God,
    did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage;
7 rather, he made himself nothing
    by taking the very nature[b] of a servant,
    being made in human likeness.
8 And being found in appearance as a man,
    he humbled himself
    by becoming obedient to death—
        even death on a cross!
Therefore God exalted him to the highest place
    and gave him the name that is above every name,
10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,
    in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
11 and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord,
    to the glory of God the Father.
Do Everything Without Grumbling

12 Therefore, my dear friends, as you have always obeyed—not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence—continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling, 13 for it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose.

14 Do everything without grumbling or arguing, 15 so that you may become blameless and pure, “children of God without fault in a warped and crooked (depraved), generation.” Then you will shine among them like stars in the sky 16 as you hold firmly to the word of life.

PRAY

Dear Father, as servants of the Most High God, help us to humble ourselves even more so we may shine for Christ even more in this ‘wicked and depraved generation.’ Help us not to purposely offend but to show love and compassion even in the face of attack. Bless us not to be overcome by evil but to overcome evil with good (Romans12:21).

Help us to do the good the good works that you prepared long ago for us to do (Ephesians2:10).

Help us to go into all the world to preach the gospel, get people saved, and baptize them in the Name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19-20).

Bless us to completely lose our lives so we find them in Christ. For it is in Jesus that we live and move and have our being (Acts 27:28).

We pray for the peace of Jerusalem and for the whole world to be saved and baptized in your Holy Spirit and with fire, Jesus baptize all with fire while there is still time.

 

We ask and believe that we receive these requests, in the Mighty, Precious, Holy, Awesome, and Unmatchable, Name of Jesus, Amen! 

We love you, Jesus loves you, and God has Awesome plans for you!

God/Give

It is God’s very nature to give. When we receive Christ into our hearts, it becomes our very nature to give.

When you plant apple seeds or cabbage seeds, you receive a harvest of apples and cabbages. God wanted a family, so he planted a seed (Jesus), and we (those who accept Christ into our hearts are his harvest).

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

“Even from the days of your fathers ye are gone away from mine ordinances, and have not kept them. Return unto me, and I will return unto you, saith the Lord of hosts. But ye said, Wherein shall we return?

8 Will a man rob God? Yet ye have robbed me. But ye say, Wherein have we robbed thee? In tithes and offerings.

9 Ye are cursed with a curse: for ye have robbed me, even this whole nation.

10 Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the Lord of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.

11 And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground; neither shall your vine cast her fruit before the time in the field, saith the Lord of hosts.

12 And all nations shall call you blessed: for ye shall be a delightsome land, saith the Lord of hosts” (Malachi 3:7-12).

We give to God because we love him. As previously mentioned when we receive Christ into our hearts it becomes our very nature to give. “God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him” (1 John 4:16b). Because we love we begin to give.
“For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost” (Luke 19:10) so we want to save the lost too. It takes money to get the gospel spread around the world, to send missionaries, water, food and clothing to those in need. Supporting Christian ministries becomes natural to us.

And when we give into God’s Kingdom he blesses us back. Jesus says, “Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again” (Luke 6:38).

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=2+Corinthians+9&version=NIV

Father, please, bless your children to fall more deeply in love with you and desire in our hearts to give into your Kingdom so we can get the good news of Jesus Christ all around the world so everyone can be saved while there is still time left.

Bless all of God’s people to begin to tithe and give offerings.

We pray for the peace of Jerusalem, and for America and all nations to be saved.

Regarding politics and every other sphere,
please put Godly leaders into leadership positions in America and every other nation.

We pray for your Kingdom to come and for your will to be done on earth as it is in heaven.

Father, please meet the needs of all of your people.

Dear God, we ask for and receive the answers for all of these things, although we realize that each person must open their hearts to accept Christ, in the Mighty, Precious, Holy, Awesome, Unmatchable, Name of Jesus, Amen!

 

THE FOLLOWING IS ON THE INTERNET:
https://www.ncfgiving.com/stories/does-god-care-where-we-give/#:~:text=God%20cares%20about%20each%20of,his%20generosity%20through%20our%20giving.

What is the secret of giving to God?

This is a promise from God: Give and it shall be given unto you (Luke 6:38). Further, Philippians 4:15-19 teaches that God will supply the believer’s needs (not ‘wants’). Giving should be done in secret: Matthew 6:1-4 states that giving should be done in secret, not for show. Keep your giving between you and God.

What is the most powerful gift from God?

Wisdom is considered the first and the greatest of the gifts.

Please reverently meditatively prayerfully and consequently read the Word of God and join in the following prayers. Thank you!

Psalm 15

A psalm of David.

1 Lord, who may dwell in your sacred tent?
    Who may live on your holy mountain?

2 The one whose walk is blameless,
    who does what is righteous,
    who speaks the truth from their heart;
3 whose tongue utters no slander,
    who does no wrong to a neighbor,
    and casts no slur on others;
4 who despises a vile person
    but honors those who fear the Lord;
who keeps an oath even when it hurts,
    and does not change their mind;
5 who lends money to the poor without interest;
    who does not accept a bribe against the innocent.

Whoever does these things
    will never be shaken.

2 Timothy 2:19-22
God’s solid foundation stands firm, sealed with this inscription: “The Lord knows those who are his,” and, “Everyone who confesses the name of the Lord must turn away from wickedness.”

20 In a large house there are articles not only of gold and silver, but also of wood and clay; some are for special purposes and some for common use. 21 Those who cleanse themselves from the latter will be instruments for special purposes, made holy, useful to the Master and prepared to do any good work.

20 In a large house there are articles not only of gold and silver, but also of wood and clay; some are for special purposes and some for common use. 21 Those who cleanse themselves from the latter will be instruments for special purposes, made holy, useful to the Master and prepared to do any good work.

22 Flee the evil desires of youth and pursue righteousness, faith, love and peace, along with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart.

Oh God, these are truly the last days. So many people have gone from bad to worse. Whether movies made in Hellywood, the false, lying, evil teachings coming from universities, talk shows, the evils being done even in hospitals, the increase in knowledge upon the earth, the increase of drug use and the unified front of the supposed treatment of those addicted, and this list goes on and on. These evil people are opposed to God. Regarding what is happening in the world and wht it keeps getting worse and worse is because the devil and his demonic forces are behind the scenes. Revelation 12:12 states, “the devil has gone down to you!
He is filled with fury,
    because he knows that his time is short,” so has increasingly stepped his attacks to destroy mankind. That’s why they have worked so feverishly to remove prayer and the mention of God from public classrooms, and to teach (tell lies) to our children so they will be ignorant of the True and Living God (Father, Jesus, Holy Spirit).

But we who name the Name of Jesus the Christ are believing for an endtime revival that so far exceeds all previous revivals combined.

Father, we pray for your mercies to cover the earth, we ask that you send Holy Spirit fresh upon your Church, may we come to know and experience yoy and your ways that are impossible for the human mind to conceive and comprehend without your help.

Dear God, save souls, let all mankind hear the gospel message and give their hearts to Jesus while there is still time.

Please strengthen your Church leadership and bless them to “Speak the truth in love.”

We pray for prodigals/back sliders to return to the Father’s house/Jesus while there is still time.

We pray for Godly leaders to be placed into leadership in America and around the world, in the way of presidents, governors, mayors, education and in every other capacity.

Dear God in heaven, help. Have free reign!

 

We ask and believe that we receive these things in the Precious, Mighty, Holy, Awesome, Unmatchable Name of Jesus we pray, Amen!

Please reverently read, meditate upon, receive the following Scriptures personally, and pray.

In Acts 1:8 Jesus promises, “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth”. “In this verse, Jesus is speaking to his disciples before ascending into heaven, promising them that they will testify to his power when the Holy Spirit comes upon them.”

Ephesians 2:10 states, “For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.” 

James 1:5 in the Bible says, “If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him”. 

Deuteronomy 28:8 
The LORD will send a blessing on your barns and on everything you put your hand to. The LORD your God will bless you in the land he is giving you.

Isaiah 54:17 

New International Version
no weapon forged against you will prevail, and you will refute every tongue that accuses you. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and this is their vindication from me,” declares the LORD.

Psalm 119:130 (Amplified Bible, Classic Edition)

The entrance and unfolding of Your words give light; their unfolding gives understanding (discernment and comprehension) to the simple.

Now Father, heal the sick, give understanding to the simple, bless the blind to see, the deaf to hear, the dumb to speak, the lame to to walk, run, and leap for joy. Heal marriages and families. Save America, the Middle East, Germany, Italy, Amsterdam, Ireland, Africa, and the whole world, while there is still time.

Isaiah 61
The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me,
    because the Lord has anointed me
    to proclaim good news to the poor.
He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,
    to proclaim freedom for the captives
    and release from darkness for the prisoners,
2 to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor
    and the day of vengeance of our God,
to comfort all who mourn,
3     and provide for those who grieve in Zion—
to bestow on them a crown of beauty
    instead of ashes,
the oil of joy
    instead of mourning,
and a garment of praise
    instead of a spirit of despair.
They will be called oaks of righteousness,
    a planting of the Lord
    for the display of his splendor.

Dear God, thank you for empowering us with the Holy Spirit to share Jesus with others. Help us to reach the whole world with the gospel message.

We pray for your protection in this depraved world where there are liars, thieves, God haters, and more.

Your word makes it clear that, “But as for the cowards and unbelieving and abominable [who are devoid of character and personal integrity and practice or tolerate immorality], and murderers, and sorcerers [with intoxicating drugs], and idolaters and occultists [who practice and teach false religions], and all the liars [who knowingly deceive and twist truth], their part will be in the lake that blazes with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.” Father, help us to reach those who live this way with the love of Christ so they will repent, give them hearts to Jesus, and make it into heaven, escaping eternity in hell.

Help us to complete every good work that you set up in advance for us to do.

Father, give us more wisdom so that we can please you even more and accomplish all that you desire.

Bless your people to lay their tithes and give offerings so that your work can be accomplished throughout the world.

Raise up more prayer warriors, Church leaders, men and women in the sphere of politics, actors, singers, and in every other area to bring glory to the Name of Jesus.

Please bless America, Israel, and all nations to be saved and baptized in your Holy Spirit and with fire. Jesus, baptize all with the fire of the Holy Spirit.

Please put the Bible back into schools, all libraries, and public institutions in America and all around the world.

Bless your people to be healed and to lack nothing.

Dear God, may your Kingdom come, and your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
Deliver us from the evil one, for yours is the Kingdom and the Power and the glory forever.

Father, we ask these things (make these requests) in the Mighty, Awesome, Majestic, Powerful, Loving, Name of Jesus, Amen!

Dear God, help each of we who are your children fulfill your purpose for our lives, bringing glory to your Name. We are armed with the truth of your glorious and all-powerful word (gospel) wherein is found salvation for our very soul. And we know that faith and wisdom and knowledge come by continually hearing your word (the Bible). For it is by faith that you receive salvation. For as the Scriptures say, “If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved”

We are the head and not the tail. We are above and not beneath.

We are God’s holy remnant

We are kings and priests in your service

We do all things through Christ who strengthens us

We have been given power (ability) to get wealth

The wealth of the wicked has been stored up for us

We are tithers. Therefore, we have tithers rights

The windows of heaven are open over us, and we receive more blessings than we can contain

God has made us wiser than our teachers

He has given us houses that we didn’t build and vineyards we didn’t plant

We’re blessed coming in and going out, in the city, and in the fields

When our enemies attack us, they stumble and fall
When they come from one direction, they flee in seven

No weapon formed against us shall prosper

Great is the peace of our children and grandchildren, for they are taught of the Lord

God, you are our rear guard

Everywhere we step, we own it, and everything we put our hands to God blesses

Dear God, we pray and claim your promises in the Precious Name of Jesus, Amen!

April 21st, 2024The Wise and Foolish Builders

24 “Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. 25 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. 26 But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. 27 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash.”

We are wise because our house is built on Jesus. He is God, our spiritual Rock. When we go (pray) to the Father in the Name of Jesus, we gain access into the very Throne room of God. And when we approach God in faith, it pleases him. He delights in us and desires to answer our prayers.

Consistent prayer requires enormous strength and commitment, of heart (spirit), soul,
(mind, will, and emotions) and strength (physical effort).

This effort of communing with God (which the devil hates and fears above all else) is the most demanding requirement in all of life. You see, Word (biblically) based prayer is the most powerful and effective thing we can do to change the hearts of evil people and bring God’s goodness into this fallen world.

Show me your prayer life, and it will tell of your relationship, faith, and commitment or lack, thereof, to God.

How do we fight the good fight of faith and win?

1. We pray without ceasing.

2. We live our lives trusting God make every decision by faith. As the Scriptures say, “For everyone who has been born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith” (1 John 5:4 ESV).

As God’s people, we speak the truth in love, and by so doing, we , “Grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ” (Ephesians 4:15 NIV).

“Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ” (Ephesians 4:15 NIV)

Prayer is essential to the christian life!

Prayer directed by the Holy Spirit and by the Word of God, mixed with faith, is a must for the prevailing man and woman of God. Just as a lighted lamp requires a plug placed in a working socket, so we must plug into God’s presence and alive power through prayer.

The Model Prayer

Our Father, who art in Heaven, hallowed be your Name

Praise you, Father, praise you, Jesus. Holy Spirit, we are determined to hear your voice and follow your direction as we seek to honor God in obedience to his Word.

Jesus, we praise you, Jehovah Shalom, The L.ord our Peace. You give us peace that passes all human understanding even as we face the challenges and storms of life. For we acknowledge that you are with us and your presence changes everything.

You are Jehovah Rapha, the Lord our Healer. There is no amount of pain, illness, or suffering that you can not handle. For you paid the price with your own blood and life.

So I ask you to heal me from … NAME WHATEVER IT IS YOU NEED TO BE HEALED FROM …

You are Jehovah Jireh, the Lord our Provider. You made yourself poor so that we might become rich. You set us free from the curse of the law, poverty, sickness, and spiritual death.

Father, please bless me in the area of my finances. TELL GOD SPECIFICALLY WHAT YOUR NEEDS ARE:

You are Jehovah M’Kaddesh, the Lord who sanctifies us (sets us apart from the world, being mastered by sin), and you make us holy unto yourself, freeing us from bondage to sin. We seek to do your will only. Help us to glorify you everywhere you send us, bringing/winning more and more people to Christ.

Father, may your Kingdom come, may your will be done in my life, in all lives, and in everything here on earth just as it is in heaven.

Give us this day, our daily bread, and meet all of our needs here on earth as it is in heaven. Bless our finances, … FILL IN THE BLANK ….

Forgive us for our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us (Forgive us for our sins as we forgive those who sin against us).

And lead us not into temptation but deliver us from the evil one (the devil and demons), and all sin.

For yours is the Kingdom, and the Power, and the Glory, forever.

We worship and honor you, oh God, for you are the Creator of everything.

Now we thank you and praise you for answering all our prayers, in Jesus’ Name, Amen!

JESUS

These Scriptures were prophesied about Jesus many years before he came to earth and fulfilled them.

“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. 17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him” (John 3:16-17NIV).

Suffering and Glory of the Servant

1″See, my servant will act wisely
    he will be raised and lifted up and highly exalted.
14 Just as there were many who were appalled at him
    his appearance was so disfigured beyond that of any human being
    and his form marred beyond human likeness—
15 so he will sprinkle many nations,
    and kings will shut their mouths because of him.
For what they were not told, they will see,
    and what they have not heard, they will understand” (Isaiah 52:13-15).

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Isaiah%2053&version=NIV

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=John%2017&version=NIV

Jehovah M’Kaddesh, the Lord who sanctifies us. Help us to live holy lives unto you. Help us to be pure representatives of Christ, holy and blameless. Bless us to let the light of Christ shine everywhere we go.

Dear God, Your word declares to us that we are “The light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden.  Neither do people light a
lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify 
your Father in heaven” (Matthew 5:14-16).

Father, send us out into the highways, the hedges, inner cities, byways, street corners, and remote areas of the world to compel them to receive Christ as their Lord and Savior while there is still time (see Luke 14:2).

Please expand our prayer lives so that we may accomplish more for the Kingdom of God.

We immeasurably thank you for honoring our prayer requests. For it is in the Mighty, Holy, Awesome, Unmatchable, Perfect, Most Powerful Name of Jesus we pray, Amen!

HAPPY RESURRECTION DAY!

Please read and pray the following meditatively.

“Understand this, my beloved brothers and sisters. Let everyone be quick to hear [be a careful, thoughtful listener], slow to speak [a speaker of carefully chosen words and], slow to anger [patient, reflective, forgiving]; 20 for the [resentful, deep-seated] anger of man does not produce the righteousness of God [that standard of behavior which He requires from us]. 21 So get rid of all uncleanness and all that remains of wickedness, and with a humble spirit receive the word [of God] which is implanted [actually rooted in your heart], which is able to save your souls. 22 But prove yourselves doers of the word [actively and continually obeying God’s precepts], and not merely listeners [who hear the word but fail to internalize its meaning], deluding yourselves [by unsound reasoning contrary to the truth]. 23 For if anyone only listens to the word without obeying it, he is like a man who looks very carefully at his natural face in a mirror; 24 for once he has looked at himself and gone away, he immediately forgets what he looked like. 25 But he who looks carefully into the perfect law, the law of liberty, and faithfully abides by it, not having become a [careless] listener who forgets but an active doer [who obeys], he will be blessed and 
favored by God in what he does [in his life of obedience].
26 If anyone thinks himself to be religious [scrupulously observant of the rituals of his faith], and does not control his tongue but deludes his own 
heart, this person’s religion is worthless (futile, barren). 
27 Pure and unblemished religion [as it is expressed in outward acts] in the sight of our God and Father is this: to visit and look after the fatherless and the widows in their distress, and to keep oneself uncontaminated by the [secular] world” (James 1:-19-27).

PRAYER:

Father, help us to be true ambassadors of Christ in whom there is no guile (trickery or deceit). Let the meditation of our hearts and the words of our mouths be pleasing in your sight continually. May your love and righteousness shine so brightly through us so that people all over the world will be drawn to Christ in increasing numbers while there is still time.

Help us to draw nearer to you so that you may draw nearer to us. For we delight ourselves in your Holy Word and are like trees always bearing fruit in
season. You prosper us everywhere we go so that our lives prove your love for us.

We desire for your will to be done on earth as it is in heaven. We want you to receive glory and credit for everything good done on earth and in heaven.

We acknowledge that the earth is yours, everything created, and we who dwell therein.

Now Father, send revival on a level never before seen so that your Church will be healed and so many people will be saved and baptized in the Holy Spirit while there is still time.

BIBLE and BIBLICALLY BASED

Some of the material comes directly from Charles Capps’ book, “GOD’S CREATIVE POWER WILL WORK FOR YOU.”

I have gone directly to the Bible to open the Scriptures regarding the quotes that Capps put into his book I have taken it into prayer mode. We go directly to God’s Word and pray accordingly. For all of God’s promises are yes, and we say amen (so be it) in agreement with him (See 2 Corinthians 1:20). We are to take our rightful place in the Kingdom of God. In Christ, “We are more than conquerors” (Romans 8:37) and we have authority over the devil and demons see Luke10:19). God has given us dominion over everything (see Genesis 1:26-28).
“The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective”
(James 5:16) and, “God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God” (1 Corinthians 5:21).

1 Corinthians 12:27

New International Version

27 Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it.

We pray:
I am the body of Christ and Satan has no power over me. For I overcome evil with good
(1 Corinthians 12:27; Romans 12:21

1 John 4:4 Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.

We pray:
I am of God and have overcome him (Satan). For greater is He that is in me, than hethat is in the world (1 John 4:4).

Psalm 23:14 4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
We pray;
I will fear no evil for you are with me Lord, your Word and your Spirit they comfort me (Psalms 23:4).

Isaiah 54:14
James Bible
In righteousness shalt thou be established: thou shalt be far from oppression; for thou shalt not fear: and from terror; for it shall not come near thee

We pray:
I am far from oppression, and fear does not come near me (Isaiah 54:14).

Isaiah 54:17
But in that coming day no weapon turned against you will succeed. You will silence every voice raised up to accuse you. These benefits are enjoyed by the servants of the LORD; their vindication will come from me. I, the LORD, have spoken!

We pray:
No weapon formed against me shall prosper, for my righteousness is of But whatever I do will prosper for I’m like a tree that’s planted by the rivers of water
(Isaiah 54:17; Psalms 1:3).

Jesus gave his life for our sins, just as God our Father planned, in order to rescue us from this evil world in which we live.

Galatians 1:4 NLT –

We pray:
I am delivered from the evils of this present world for it is the will of God. (Galatians1:4).

“No evil shall befall you, nor shall any plague come. near your dwelling; for He shall give His angels charge. over you, to keep you in all your ways.” Psalm 91:10-11

We pray:
No evil will befall me neither shall any plague come near my dwelling. For the Lord has given His angels charge over me and they keep me in all my ways, and in my pathway is life and there is no death (Psalms 91:10-11; Proverbs 12:28).

James 1:22

New International Version

22 Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.

We pray:
I am a doer of the Word of God and am blessed in my deeds. I am happy in those things which I do because I am a doer of the Word of God (James 1:22).

Ephesians 6:16

New International Version

16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.

We pray:
I take the shield of faith and I quench every fiery dart that the wicked one brings against me (Ephesians 6:16).

Galatians 3:13
13 Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us,

We pray:
Christ has redeemed me from the curse of the law. Therefore, I forbid any sickness or disease to come upon this body. Every disease germ and every virus that touches this body dies instantly in the name of Jesus. Every organ and every tissue of thisbody functions in the perfection to which God created it to function, and I forbidany malfunction in this body, in the name of Jesus (Galatians 3:13; Romans 8:11; Genesis1:31; Matthew 16:19).

Revelation 12:11
And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.

We pray:
I am an overcomer and I overcome by the blood of the Lamb and the word of my testimony
(Revelation 12:11).

Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

We pray:
I am submitted to God and the devil flees from me because I resist him in the name of Jesus (James 4:7).

Psalms 119:89  Your word, LORD, is eternal; it stands firm in the heavens. 90 Your faithfulness continues through all generations; you established the earth, and it endures. 91 Your laws endure to this day, for all things serve you.

We pray:
The Word of God is forever settled in heaven. Therefore, I establish His Word upon this earth” (Psalms 119:89).

Isaiah 54:13
13 And all thy children shall be taught of the Lord; and great shall be the cpeace of thy children.

We pray:
Great is the peace of my children for they are taught of the Lord (Isaiah 54:13).

We pray these things in the Name of Jesus, Amen!

Of course, there is so much more. We are not even scratching the surface of God’s power and might.

SANCTIFICATION:
Living a sanctified life:

“Nevertheless, the firm foundation of God [which He has laid] stands [sure and unshaken despite attacks], bearing this seal: “The Lord knows those who are His,” and, “Let everyone who names the name of the Lord stand apart from wickedness and 

withdraw from wrongdoing” (2 Timothy 2:19 AMP).

Please read and pray meditatively:

Both accepting and denying Christ have eternal consequences. If we accept Christ as Lord and Savior into our hearts, it means that we go to heaven where we will spend eternity with God. On the other hand, if we reject him, we’ll spend eternity in hell.

2 Timothy 1:9 (Amplified Bible)

for He delivered us and saved us and called us with a holy calling [a calling that leads to a consecrated life—a life set apart—a life of purpose], not because of our works [or because of any personal merit—we could do nothing to earn this], but because of His own purpose and grace [His amazing, undeserved favor] which was granted to us in Christ Jesus before the world began [eternal ages ago],

As true Christians, while we acknowledge that we’re not perfect, with the new life that Christ has given us, we don’t teach others to lie, steal, or cheat because we no longer live as the world does.

When Paul talked about being all things to all people that did not mean that he was in any way involved in stealing or lying or doing drugs or having sex with women to show peopke that he was cool. All of his actions and conduct were led by the Holy Spirit in order that he might show the love of Christ and win people to the Lord.

From the internet: “Paul states that he has not accepted payment for his ministry so that no obstacle might be put in the way of the gospel. Instead, he has renounced various rights and has become “all things to all people” (1 Corinthians 9:22) so that some might be saved.”

Paul said, “Though I am free and belong to no one, I have made myself a slave to everyone, to win as many as possible. To the Jews I became like a Jew, to win the Jews. To those under the law I became like one under the law (though I myself am not under the law), so as to win those under the law … ” (1 Corinthians 9:19–23).

Jesus spent time with sinners – but did not sin with sinners.

From the internet: “He didn’t take part in the sin of the sinners He hung out with, and He certainly didn’t condone their sin. On the contrary! 
Jesus hung out with sinners to teach them about who He is and what He would do for them, and that they need to repent of their sins, nd not take sin lightly.”

We must always, “Be sober [well balanced and self-disciplined], be alert and cautious at all times. That enemy of yours, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion [fiercely hungry], seeking someone to devour” (1 Peter 5:8 AMP).

And we must remember that Satan, “The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy” (John 10:10). He is the tempter. 

Satan tempted David

Satan is the tempter who is always looking to lure people into sin.
At one point in David’s kingship, against Godly advice, and out of pride, he numbered his troops. You don’t find until you get to 1 Chronicles 21:1 that, “Satan [the adversary] stood up against Israel and incited David to count [the population of] Israel.”

Wherever evil exists, you can be sure that the devil is behind the scenes.

So, as men and women of God, we should be showing younger men and women what real commitment looks like. They should not be learning from us to lie and sneak behind your spouse’s back. They should not be learning from us how you steal and cheat your way through life.

God holds us responsible for how we conduct our affairs both privately and before others.

The modes by which we conduct ourselves must be holy. For God says to each believer, “YOU SHALL BE HOLY (set apart), FOR I AM HOLY” (1 Peter 1:16 AMP).

PRAYER:
*Eternal Father, God of power and might, have mercy on we who are called to live holy and righteous lives, forgive us our sins, and help us to live lives that honor you, and bring glory and honor to Christ our Lord. You made us in your image to enjoy fellowship and to bring glory to you. Our influence on others should reflect your love as we bring honor to you.

For the rest of our lives, let us reflect your love in the way that you first loved us.

May we win so many  more people to Christ while there is still time.

Thank you and praise you in The Mighty, Matchless, All Powerful and Holy Name of Jesus we pray, Amen!*

“For God so [greatly] 
loved and dearly prized the world, that He [even] gave His [One and] [a]only begotten Son, so that whoever believes and trusts in Him [as Savior] shall not perish, but have eternal life” (John 3:16 Amplified Bible).

“But perfect (complete, full-grown) love drives out fear, because fear involves [the expectation of divine] punishment, so the one who is afraid [of God’s judgment] is not perfected in love [has not grown into a sufficient understanding of God’s love]. We love, because He first loved us” (1 John 4:17-19).

God sets us apart from the world so we can be his holy people and have fellowship with him. We are no longer mastered by sin and freed to live holy lives that are pleasing to him.

Jehovah M’Kaddesh

“You shall consecrate yourselves therefore, and be holy; for I am the Lord your God. 8 You shall keep My statutes and do them. I am the Lord who sanctifies you” (Leviticus 20:7-8.

Luke 3:8 says,
“Produce fruit in keeping with repentance.” As we truly live for/walk with him, there will be a change in our lives. Our language will change, our thoughts/the way we think will change, our choice of music, movies, our whole lives will change. We will reflect the very nature and life of Jesus.

Luke 1:47
King James Bible
Jesus saw Nathanael coming to him, and saith of him, Behold an Israelite indeed, in whom is no guile!

New International Version
When Jesus saw Nathanael approaching, he said of him, “Here truly is an Israelite in whom there is no deceit.

“The Lord has sought out for Himself a man after His own heart …” (1 Samuel 13:14).

Hebrews 4:12-13 AMP
12 For the word of God is living and active and full of power [making it operative, energizing, and effective]. It is sharper than any two-edged [b]sword, penetrating as far as the division of the [c]soul and spirit [the completeness of a person], and of both joints and marrow [the deepest parts of our nature], exposing and judging the very thoughts and intentions of the heart. 13 And not a creature exists that is concealed from His sight, but all things are open and exposed, and revealed to the eyes of Him with whom we have to give account.

Luke 6:45 NIV
Verse  (Click for Chapter)

New International Version
A good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and an evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart. For the mouth speaks what the heart is full of

The Widow’s Offering

Mark 12:41-44
41 Jesus sat down opposite the place where the offerings were put and watched the crowd putting their money into the temple treasury. Many rich people threw in large amounts. 42 But a poor widow came and put in two very small copper coins, worth only a few cents. 43Calling his disciples to him, Jesus said, “Truly I tell you, this poor widow has put more into the treasury than all the others. 44 They all gave out of their wealth; but she, out of her poverty, put in everything—all she had to live on.”

A basketball player practices shooting hoops,etc. A football player practices running the ball, etc.
A musician practices playing his or her instrument. Just as a sinner practices sinning. A righteous person awakens to do God’s will while an evil person is looking for things such as having more sex outside of marriage, using drugs, stealing, lying, cheating, etc.

The Scriptures show that God sees everything and knows the motives of our hearts.

We should love and live to please God, and we are to love mankind.

When Jesus was asked which was the most important commandment, he said, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ 31 The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these” (Mark 12:30-31).

God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, bless us to love you with all of our heart, soul, mind, and strength and bless us to love each other as we love ourselves. Please bless all nations to give their hearts to Jesus while there is still time. We pray for the peace of Jerusalem. Please let your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. For these, we truly thank you in the Mighty, Matchless, Most Powerful Name of Jesus, Amen!

God had been speaking to my heart about such things.

Jesus said that those who follow him would be persecuted. I have said to people that whenever you make a decision to live or do right in this fallen world, you will face opposition. Just as Adam, when he disobeyed God, immediately died spiritually, yet it took a while before he died physically, so also when Jesus died on the Cross, he completely defeated Satan and all demons and evil powers they possess yet battles persist.

Jesus “disarmed the rulers and authorities [those supernatural forces of evil operating against us], He made a public example of them [exhibiting them as captives in His triumphal procession], having triumphed over them through the cross”
(Colossians 2:15 AMP). Even though he gained complete victory, making ours complete, he continues to intercede for us in heaven (Hebrews 7:2, as we face opposition because we are his followers doing good works (Ephesians 2:10), exposing and defeating evil. However, God warns us, “Be sober [well balanced and self-disciplined], be alert and cautious at all times. That enemy of yours, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion [fiercely hungry], seeking someone to devour” (1 Peter 5:8).

As a human service worker yesterday, Saturday, 2/24/24, I was working with a new client who not only believes in God but also has a big (physical) hard copy of the Bible. Bear in mind that this is a secular setting where they despise the Living God and all that represents him. His assigned case worker was livid. Aldi, she knows that I believe in God. Without getting into all the details, she purposely prevented him from joining in with other clients who were being allowed to go shopping (at our organization, this is a service provided for clients every 2 weeks). He was, however, given assurance that he would eventually be allowed to go. Somehow, it was fumbled by the caseworker and other staff. Later she called me on the phone and in a very harsh tone, blaming me for not communicating something that she supposedly communicated to me, which she didn’t, regarding this client being allowed to go shopping on the next shift as opposed the the real goal which had been set (it was supposed to happen on our shift). When I realized that she was doing this before an audience, I quickly went to where they were (a big supervisor was also present) and told her, “I come to you in love,” but made it clear to her in front of those present that she had not informed me of any such thing that she had claimed.

I have so many other examples of being attacked because of my faith in Christ.

Jesus tells us, “In the world you have tribulation 
and distress and suffering, but be courageous [be confident, be undaunted, be filled with joy]; I have overcome the world.” [My conquest is accomplished, My victory abiding]”
(John 16:33).

Prayer Promises

23 In that day you will not [need to] ask Me about anything. I assure you and most solemnly say to you, whatever you ask the Father in My name [as My representative], He will give you. 24 Until now you have not asked [the Father] for anything in My name; but now ask and keep on asking and you will receive, so that your joy may be full 
and complete” (John 16:23-24).

Father, in Jesus’ Name, we ask for wisdom and your favor as we navigate through this life, heading toward living with you in eternity/heaven. Help us to properly represent Christ for whom we are ambassadors (2 Corinthians 5:20). Bless us to win so many more souls/people to Christ while there is still time. For each life/person is far more valuable than all the riches the world has to offer. Help us to make and keep the main thing the main thing.

“For God so [greatly] loved and dearly prized the world, that He [even] gave His [One and] [a]only begotten Son, so that whoever believes and trusts in Him [as Savior] shall not perish, but have eternal life” (John 3:16).

Dear God, please heal your people, our marriages and families, bring our wayward children home to Christ, give us jobs and businesses, finances, and provide for all of our needs. For we ask these things in Jesus’ Name, Amen!

“For as many as are the promises of God, in Christ they are [all answered] “Yes.” So through Him we say our “Amen” to the glory of God” (2 Corinthians 1:20).

Daniel 10
1In the third year of Cyrus king of Persia, a revelation was given to Daniel (who was called Belteshazzar). Its message was true and it concerned a great war. [1] The understanding of the message came to him in a vision.2At that time I, Daniel, mourned for three weeks. I ate no choice food; no meat or wine touched my lips; and I used no lotions at all until the three weeks were over.4On the twenty-fourth day of the first month, as I was standing on the bank of the great river, the Tigris,5I looked up and there before me was a man dressed in linen, with a belt of the finest gold around his waist. that they fled and hid themselves.8So I was left alone, gazing at this great vision; I had no strength left, my face turned deathly pale and I was helpless.9 Then I heard him speaking, and as I listened to him, I fell into a deep sleep, my face to the ground.10A hand touched me and set me trembling on my hands and knees.11He said, “Daniel, you who are highly esteemed, consider carefully the words I am about to speak to you, and stand up, for I have now been sent to you.” And when he said this to me, I stood up trembling. Then he continued, “Do not be afraid, Daniel. Since the first day that you set your mind to gain understanding and to humble yourself before your God, your words were heard, and I have come in response to them.13But the prince of the Persian kingdom resisted me twenty-one days. Then Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me, because I was detained there with the king of Persia.14
speechless.16Then one who looked like a man [2] touched my lips, and I opened my mouth and began to speak. I said to the one standing before me, “I am overcome with anguish because of the vision, my lord, and I am helpless. man highly esteemed,” he said. “Peace! Be strong now; be strong.” When he spoke to me, I was strengthened and said, “Speak, my lord, since you have given me strength.”20 So he said, “Do you know why I have come to you? Soon I will return to fight against the prince of Persia, and when I go, the prince of Greece will come;21but first I will tell you what is written in the Book of Truth. No one supports me against them except Michael, your prince” (Daniel 10 New International Version).

Please open your Bible to Daniel 10 to read the whole chapter because some of the words did not copy and paste properly. 

What is meant to be shown here is how the devil and demons fight against us (God and his people) to try to defeat us.

We must remember that, “our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms” (Ephesians 6:12).

Jesus tells us, “”Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.8For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened” (Matthew 7:7-8).

The implication is to keep on asking, seeking, and knocking. Enemy forces, Satan and demons are aligned against us but we must realize that Jesus, “disarmed the powers and authorities, he made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross” (Colossians 2:15) and, “You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world” (1 John 4:4).

We are children of the Most High God and have been empowered by the Holy Spirit to do good works (Ephesians 2:10).

It was prophesied that Jesus would defeat Satan. “And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring [1] and hers; he will crush [2] your head, and you will strike his heel.” (Genesis 3:15).

“You are in Christ, and His victory is your victory.” Satan’s head is crushed at the cross by Christ and by all who are Christ’s.”

The Scriptures emphasize, ” you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth” (Acts 1:8).

So God tells us, “do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand” (Isaiah 41:10).

Dear God, thank you for victory in every area of our lives. Thank you for sending Jesus to die for our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness. Thank you for making us, “ambassadors of Christ,” helping people to turn from their wicked ways and be saved (see 2 Corinthians 5:20).

We pray for every person to be saved. Deliver them from their wicked ways into personal relationships with Jesus.

Please let Godly men and women lead your Church, and Godly men and women be voted into government offices throughout America and around the world. Please let Godly people replace evil professors and teachers on all levels to teach and instruct adults and children correctly. Please send revival immeasurably to your Church and let it spread across the world to every sphere, winning souls in and outside of the Church walls, affecting change, liquor stores closing, mafia and gang members breaking up, prostitutes and pimps stopping their evil practices, those confused with their sexual identifies learning who they are in Christ and living straight, thieves no longer stealing, liars no longer lying, fornicators and adulterors turning from such evil practices, and please let everyone find their needs met in Christ.

Please help out brothers and sisters who being persecuted to escape this horrible condition.

We pray for the peace of Jerusalem and all Israel. Bless them to give their hearts to Jesus, the “Prince of Peace” (Isaiah 9:6).

Please pray as God instructs you, and remember that we are to “pray continually (1 Thessalonians 5:17).

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Proverbs%208&version=KJV

We’re fasting and praying:

Bless you, and praise you, Father. We give you honor, glory, and praise. Thank you for waking us up this morning. Thank you
El Shaddai, God Almighty, for your brand new mercies this morning. We appreciate being chosen by you to be ambassadors of Christ and for having your righteousness bestowed upon us.

Thank you, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit! We appreciate your presence.

Oh God, give us your wisdom. We search for it as for gold.

We, “Choose your instruction (over and above) instead of silver,” your, “knowledge rather than choice gold.”

Yes Lord, your, “Wisdom is more precious than rubies,
and nothing” we, “desire can compare with her.”

Your word is holy. You give us wisdom, guidance, and knowledge through its pages for it is God breathed, alive and filled with your power (2 Timothy 3:16-17; Hebrews 4:13;).

“The fear of the LORD (deep respect, awe) is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding” (Proverbs 9:10, and it teaches us to “hate pride and arrogance, evil behavior and perverse speech.”

We “would rather be doorkeepers in the house of the Lord” rather than to be counted as important in the company of those who do evil. Being in your presence is so much better (Psalm 84:10).

We seek first your Kingdom and your righteousness (your way of doing things)
and you provide for our every need (Matthew 6:33). We desire to please only you. You have proven to be faithful in all your ways. Everything you do is perfect. You are righteous and faithful in all your ways (See Deuteronomy 32:4). For you are a friend who sticks closer than a brother (Proverbs 18:24).
You are, Jehovah Shammah –
(Ezekiel 48:35)
signifying your very presence, most certainly a very present help in times of trouble (Psalm 46:1). You are Jehovah-jireh (Genesis 22:11-14),
the Lord our provider, for you have met (and continue to meet)
all of our needs in Christ.

You are Jehovah Nissi (Exodus 17:15)
“The Lord our banner” who gives us victory over all our enemies and in every situation). No weapon forged against us shall prosper (Isaiah 54:17), for you give your angels charge over us to protect us (Psalm 91:11). We are reminded how just one of your angels killed one hundred and eighty-five thousand evil men (2 Kings 19:35), and how these mighty beings have been given assignments to minister to the saints of God (us) (Hebrews 1:14).

When we lay down, you watch over us, for you never sleep ( Psalm 121:4)
and you think about
me constantly for you are always with me (Psalm 139:18).

Your favor surrounds us like a shield (Psalm 5:12). Your goodness and mercy follow us all the days of our lives, and we’ll be with you forever (Psalm 23:6).

You made us in your magnificent image and have given us dominion over all living things (Genesis 1:26).

Phil 1:6
You will continue what you have begun in our lives right up unto the time Christ returns. Please bless us to do all the good things that you have set up in advance for us to do and thank you that we are your masterpieces (Ephesians 2:10).

Bless us to please you. Continually, may the words of our mouths and the meditation of our hearts be pleasing in your sight (Psalm 19:14).

We pray for the peace of Jerusalem (Psalm 122:6), for Israel America, and all nations to be saved and baptized in your Holy Spirit and with fire while there is still time.

Please send revival on a much greater scale than the world has ever known.

We know that one day, every knee will bow, and every tongue will confess that Jesus is Lord to the glory of God the Father (Philippians 2:10-11; Romans
14:11;) At the end of time, this will include those who will be going to hell because God’s very presence (holiness) requires it. But it is far better to do so now by accepting his offer of salvation found only by repenting and receiving Jesus into our hearts. In this way, if we bow willingly and we will reign with Christ forever, but if anyone chooses not to, they will spend eternity in hell.

Lord God, we conclude that, “Better is one day in your courts than a thousand elsewhere;
I(we) would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my (our) God than dwell in the tents of the wicked.
11 For the Lord God is a sun and shield;
the Lord bestows favor and honor;
no good thing does he withhold from those whose walk is blameless.” 12 Lord 
Almighty, blessed is the one who trusts in you. Psalm 84:10-12 NIV

This will require commitment, Godly meditation, focus, and rumination (What does it mean when a person is ruminate?

1. : to go over in the mind repeatedly and often casually or slowly. 2. : to chew repeatedly for an extended period.), the Word of God is delicious. Jesus said, “It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God” (Matthew 4:4).

Dear God, we bask in your presence as in the warmth of sunshine.

“For the LORD God is a sun and shield; The LORD bestows grace and favor and honor; No good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly” (Psalms 84:11 Amplified Bible (AMP).

The entrance of your Word gives us light

We delight ourselves in you, and you give us the desires of our hearts (“Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart” Psalms 37:4).

Lord, we desire that all would be saved and baptized in your Holy Spirit and with fire.

We desire that people would have all of their needs met, spirit, soul, body, emotionally, financially, materially, mentally, and in every other way.

Dear God, may your Word go forth throughout the entire world so all may hear the gospel (message of salvation) and give their hearts to Jesus while there is still time.

May marriages and families be healed.

May the homeless receive housing.

May the hungry be fed.

May the mentally ill, those addicted to drugs, sexually immoral, liars, thieves, those who practice witchcraft, atheists, agnostics, and all who are outside of the will of God be delivered, set free, and ɓe on fire for Jesus (“But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death” (Revelation 21:8).

May those who are unemployed find jobs and gain financial independence.

May Fathers and mothers love their children and raise and love them with Godly love.

May abortion be entirely removed from society all over the world.

 Jesus said, “For I have come down from heaven not to do my will but to do the will of him who sent me. 39 And this is the will of him who sent me, that I shall lose none of all those he has given me, but raise them up at the last day” (John 6:39).

 

When they realized that Jesus was not with them after much concern regarding Jesus’ whereabouts (he was just 12 years old during his earthly pilgrimage at that time), and when Joseph and Mary found Jesus
“He said to them, “Why did you seek Me? Did you not know that I must be about My Father’s business?” (Luke 2:49).

God, help us to lose ourselves in Christ and be about your business of winning people to Jesus while there is still time.

Bless us to truly love you with all of our heart, soul, mind, and strength and to love each other as we love ourselves.

May your Kingdom come and your will be done here on earth as it is in heaven.

We know that in heaven, there is no evil, suffering, or pain of any kind.

We, too, must be about our Father’s business.

Some doubt what the Bible says about the return of Christ, but it is written, “The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead, he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance” (2 Peter 3:9).

It took Noah 120 years to build the Ark. Why so long? Because of God’s love and patience. He didn’t want the people to perish. But he also doesn’t impose his will on people. You can’t force someone to love you. He is kind and loving towards everyone and desires us to invite and accept him into our hearts/lives.

So God, in these last days, is exercising patience one again.
For just as he was in Noah’s time, “He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance. But the day of the Lord will come like a thief. The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything in it will be laid bare.”

God’s chief aim/our chief aim is to win to people to Jesus so they won’t perish (go to hell) but receive eternal life (go to heaven).

“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— 9 not by works, so that no one can boast. 10 
For we are God’s handiwork, 
created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do”
(Ephesians 2:8-10).

Father, we recognize that it is by your grace through faith that we have been saved from our many sins, that we have been delivered from the power of Satan, the power of sin, death, hell and the grave, into your marvelous light. You have already set up good works for us to do. Help us, dear God, to do every one of them.

“Being confident
of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.

We will continue to serve, honor, and worship the Lord of Lord’s, and the King of Kings, the one who purchased our salvation with his own blood, “being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you (us) will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus” (Philippians 1:6).

The Apostle Paul said, “I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 3:14).

Father, we too, “press on toward the goal to win the prize for which you have called us “heavenward in Christ Jesus.” We will not back down or turn away from so great a salvation, new life, that you have given to us in Christ Jesus, by the shedding of his blood and by the power of the Holy Spirit. We are so confident that everything, no matter what we face, you, by your great power, make it all work together for our good (Romans 8:28).

Dear God, please move by your Spirit and prepare hearts all over the world to receive Christ into their hearts and be saved. Prepare and further equip your saints to get your Word to the ends of the earth so that everyone will hear the gospel and give their hearts to Jesus while there is still time.

Deliver our brothers and sisters out from the hands of their persecutors wherever needed.

Provide in every way for your people, spiritual, financial, material, mental, physical, legal, and every other way.

The power of agreement is incalculable.

“Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven” (Matthew 18:19).

Let’s agree together in prayer and see what God will do.

Lord, teach us your way, lead us in a straight path, do not turn us over to the desires of our foes, for false witnesses rise up against us breathing out violence, we are still confident of this, we will see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living (this life), we will confidently trust and wait for the LORD. You will keep us safe from the hands of our enemies. Lord God, we love your law, (great living, and imperishable word).

We gain more and more wisdom and knowledge as we study it constantly. The entrance of your Word gives us light,  Lord, you give understanding to the simple. We have hidden your Word in our hearts that we may not sin against you. You protect us against the plans of our enemies, those who hate you, and we your people.

The thief (Satan and demons) comes only, “To steal, and to kill, and to destroy” but Jesus you give us abundant life. We are the sheep of your pasture. We hear only your voice and do not follow the devil, demons, false doctrines, lying voices, and every evil way.

In these last days many have turned away from your truth, and fallen prey to the devil (demonic voices, erroneus teachings). We thank you so much that you always (in each age) have a remnant, people who truly follow you. You know those who are truly your people and we thank you that we are truly your chosen and do not pretend, like those who have one foot in the world and one foot in the Church (pretend to be holy and righteousness while harboring evil in their hearts). One day you will separate those who are truly yours from those who are evil. Lord God, please save all mankind while there is still time. Please send the gospel message (good news about Jesus) all over the world so people will hear and give their hearts to him so they will not perish but have/gain eternal life.

Tomorrow, in a very real sense, is not promised to us. Remove the spiritual blinders from people’s eyes and the spiritual plugs off their ears so they can be delivered from Satan’s traps. For we know that if the gospel is hidden it is hidden to those who are perishing. For the God of this world, Satan, has blinded the minds of those who are on their way to hell.

Dear God, we need a fresh outpouring of your Spirit to fall in America and all over the world now. Please send revival, one so powerful like the world has never seen before.

We pray for the peace of Jerusalem, that all Jews are saved and baptized in your Holy Spirit and with fire. Jesus baptize them with fire.

Free your people from persecution

Restore prodigals, your people who have strayed from your truth, the Godly path, and bring them back into your fold so they will not perish but have eternal life.

Heal completely Christian households.

Bless your saints to receive all that you have for us.

Please continue to pray as God leads you …

Let’s pray and meditate on God’s word, giving reverance to him and his word.

Lord God, we bow at your feet as we enter jnto your presence, giving you honor, glory, and praise!

“Your hands made me and formed me; give me understanding to learn your commands” (Psalm 119:73).

Prayer:
Dear God, your hands made us, give us understanding to learn your commands.

Psalm 119
97Oh, how I love your law! I meditate on it all day long.98Your commands make me wiser than my enemies, for they are ever with me.99
I have more insight than all my teachers, for I meditate on your statutes.100
I have more understanding than the elders, for I obey your precepts.

Prayer:
Oh, how we love your law. We meditate on it all day long. Your commands make us wiser than our enemies, for they are ever with us. We have more insight than all our teachers, for we meditate on your statutes. We have more understanding that the elders, for we obey your precepts.

Lord God,
“You have laid down precepts that are to be fully obeyed.5 Oh, that my ways were steadfast in obeying your decrees!”
(Psalm 119:4-5).

Your commandments, laws, and precepts are perfect and written for our best interest. You have made the whole world by your love and great power.

Lord, you say and then ask, “I am the Lord, the God of all mankind. Is anything too hard for me?” But your own Word states, “Ah, Sovereign Lord, you have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and outstretched arm. Nothing is too hard for you”
(Jeremiah 32:17). “Great and mighty God, whose name is the Lord Almighty, 19 great are your purposes and mighty are your deeds. Your eyes are open to the ways of all mankind; you reward each person according to their conduct and as their deeds deserve. 
20 You performed signs and wonders in Egypt and have continued them to this day, in Israel and among all mankind, and have gained the renown that is still yours. 21 You brought your people Israel out of Egypt with signs and wonders, by a mighty hand and an outstretched arm and with great terror. 22 You gave them this land you had sworn to give their ancestors, a land flowing with milk and honey” (Jeremiah 32:18-32).

Lord, you are too wonderful for the human mind to even comprehend. Your true love, worth, and power are far more than mere humans, left to ourselves,
can come close to understanding the magnitude of. When we receive Christ, the Holy Spirit reveals such things to us as only God can.

You spoke the universe into being. At your command, all things were created. All the stars planets, galaxies, mountains, valleys, rivers, canyons, ravines, deepest darkest caves, birds, and animals large and small came into existence by your word.

Lord, we delight in your word for it is holy, and you watch over it to make sure it comes to pass.

All of your promises are backed by your name. You sent your Word to heal us. We find salvation in your word.

Your word is the greatest of love letters. We study and meditate on your Word day and night. We gain wisdom as we study to show ourselves approved unto you as we rightly divide the word of truth.

We will not fear nor be discouraged for you are our God; You are our Shephard so we shall lack no good thing; Your goodness and mercy follows us all the days of our lives; You have given us power (ability) to get wealth; You bless everything we put our hands to and bless us to own everywhere we go; Every morning you provide new mercies for us; We are your ambassadors of Christ, warriors of God. Do bless us to receive all the blessings you have stored up for us; Bless us to study your word so we may get to know you better,
gain more understanding and apply your Word to life;

Father, we pray for the peace of Jerusalem. Help to keep Israel safe during times of war. Bless all Jews as well as every person to give their hearts to Jesus while there is still time.

May Israel, America, and all nations win the war over terrorism.

These things we ask in Jesus’ Name, Amen!

We are blessed, Father, for we fear you and find great delight in your commands. We have hidden your Word in our hearts. It helps to keep us from sinning against you. The entrance of your Word gives us light. Yes, Lord, you give us your understanding. This makes us wiser than our teachers. For you are the Lord God, Creator of heaven and earth.

Our children are mighty in the land. As the generation of the upright we, our children and grandchildren are blessed. For you have blessed us in abundance in every area of our lives.

Wealth and riches are in our houses, and our righteousness endures forever.

Thank you for blessing us to be merciful to others. It is true that to the merciful, you extend your mercies.

Jesus, you are the Light of the World, and you have made us to be the light of the world.

We are willing and obedient, and you bless us to eat the good of the land.

Even in darkness, you give us light to see so we do not stumble and fall but are able to navigate under our anointing of the Holy Spirit. You help us to both make it through the storms of life and enable us to help others who themselves are facing storms.

Because God has made us to be generous, he will also cause good to come to us.

You have taught us to conduct our affairs with justice, and we will never be shaken, put down, or destroyed.

We have no fear. Our hearts are steadfast, trusting in the Lord. In him, we are forever secure. He is ever with us, never asleep, watching over us day and night, while we sleep, and as we go about our way.

Dear God, our hearts are secure. We have no fear. In the end, we will look in triumph over our foes.

We give tithes and offerings into the work of the gospel regularly. Our righteousness endures forever, and our horn (dignity, 
and respect) is lifted high in honor.

We love and honor you, oh God, for you are our Maker and cause all things to work together for our good.

Bless us to love you and serve you with all of our heart, soul, mind, and strength.

Bless us to love one another as we love ourselves.

May your perfections in heaven be seen here on earth just as it is in heaven.

Today is the day that the Lord has made, and we rejoice and are so happy to be a part of your Kingdom.

Oh, that you would bless us indeed and enlarge our territory that your hand would be with us and that you would keep us from evil that we may not cause pain.

You gravitate to whatever your life is centered upon.

Public schools (education) started with the Church. God, being at the center.

All life, whether human families or otherwise, all species of life was started with, and by God.

When God is not the central focus, when he is removed from his rightful place in our lives, chaos, complete evil is the result. For example, public schools were once considered amongst the safest places on earth for our children to be. But since the removal of God, his Word, and the miseducation that ensues, they have become amongst the worst places on earth for our children to spend their time, being endoctrinated into believing the lie that there is no God and to follow the desires of the flesh, drugs, sex outside of marriage, if it feels good do it, disrespect your parents, create your own reality, and so forth.

Make no mistake about it. The devil is in full pursuit to “steal, kill, and destroy”
(John 10:10) our children and all who are made in God’s image (Genesis 1:26). We must remember that the “The earth is the LORD’s, and the fulness thereof; The world, and they that dwell therein. For he hath founded it upon the seas, And established it upon the floods” (Psalm 24:1-2). He created everything that is good, the atom, every rock, tree, mountain, star, fish, the wind, the seasons, all that can be imagined, and so much more, and when those are evil remove him from their presence the result is sheer evil, total mayhem and confusion.

God has established laws that can not be changed. When his ways are violated, it results in every kind of evil taking place. That’s why today people are infatuated with the taking of human life (abortion), women and men lusting for each other (women laying with women and men craving men sexually – lesbianism and homosexuality), people loving money, the abuse of drugs, lying, stealing, deception, and all manner of evil now permeates society. These people, being led by their false god (Satan) and the flesh, seeking selfish desires, who disrepect the True and Living God, are bent on wiping out the very existence of God from human society (Please see John 8:44; Psalm 2;).
Let the reader know that the devil and all who are evil will never succeed for his days are numbered. The devil’s reign on earth will soon come to an end, and he will be thrown into hell forever (see Revelation 12).

“And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever” (Revelation 20:10).

What must we who belong to God in Christ do in the meantime? I’m glad you asked. We must “Occupy” (Luke 29:13) until Jesus returns to take us back with him. We are to love and pray for those who are lost to give their hearts to Jesus while there is still time. This means getting the gospel message to the lost so they can hear about Jesus and give their hearts to him so they can be saved.

Father, we pray that the Word (the Bible) will go forth to all nations, kindreds, and tongues so they will hear the
good news and give their hearts to Jesus while there is still time.

Save America and every other nation in the world while there is still time.

Heal your Church, help us to truly love one another.

Remove witchcraft from the midst of those who call upon the Name of the Lord.

Please heal all of your people.

We pray for the transfer of the wealth of the wicked into the hands of the saints (Proverbs 13:22) so we can get the work of the Kingdom (getting the gospel out to all nations) done.

Deliver people from devious lifestyles.

Deliver people from gender confusion.

Heal families and put Godly leaders into places of authority, restore real marriage in the minds and hearts of people, which is between one man and one woman.

Bless people to realize that every one of their needs are met in Christ.

May your Kingdom come, and may your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.

Thank you, heavenly Father, in the Mighty, Precious, Holy, Awesome and Unmatchable Name of Jesus, Amen!

“The Bible depicts Solomon’s reign as an era of unprecedented prosperity due to his wisdom, a quality bestowed upon him by God. In a dream, God had asked him what he wanted most, and Solomon replied, “an understanding mind to govern your people, able to discern between good and evil” (I Kings 3:9).

Job 28:28 King James Version (KJV)

“And unto man he said, Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom; And to depart from evil is understanding.”

“How did King Solomon receive his wisdom?

So Solomon prayed to God saying, “Give your servant an understanding mind… able to discern the difference between good and evil.” And God gave him “a wise and discerning mind.” Yes, wisdom is the ability to discern between right and wrong which means right and wrong are real; good and evil exist.

Proverbs 3:17 “Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace.” Solomon didn’t know a little about a lot – he knew a lot about a lot. His wisdom wasn’t confined to theology.” We must study the Word. Knowing God and the Bible precedes everything else. But God wants us to expand our knowledge base (how to manage money, your savings and checking accounts, how to treat your spouse, pay your debts, etc.).
His wisdom and knowledge are limitless.

 

Among other things, “Solomon studied botany.”

bot·a·ny

“The Absolute Necessity of a Proper Work Ethic – Proverbs 24:27”

6/24/2011

“1 Comment

Prepare your work outside And make it ready for yourself in the field; afterwards, then, build your house. Proverbs 24:27

This proverb addresses the need to make provision for oneself and one’s family – before we begin to seek for personal comfort.  This is spoken of from the view of an agricultural society – but the principles will work everywhere.  This principle is often lost on our society which is tempted daily by commercials which tell us what we just absolutely have to get . . . immediately.  Therefore this particular proverb may be a good one to not only read and consider – but also to apply to the problems that seem to be multiplying in our nation.

We are told here to begin life by working hard – by seeking a proper support for ourselves and those for whom we are responsible.  Please read and focus on “proper support” here – rather than the worldly standards that are set before us.  Proper support means that we can provide food and clothing for ourselves and our family – as we look to the Lord to bless our efforts and our obedience.  In the day in which this was written, this meant getting outside and preparing your fields or your flocks.  It meant plowing the ground, obtaining seed, and then planting the seed and working the fields.  This involved a lot of hard work – but we should realize that work was not part of the curse – weeds were.  But regardless of whether there are weeds or not – God wants us to work – and work hard at what we do.” https://www.calvarychapeljonesboro.org/proverb-a-day/the-absolute-necessity-of-a-proper-work-ethic-proverbs-2427

God certainly wants us to study his Word. But, he also wants us to apply ourselves to learning in other areas in this vast world he has made. Christians should be the best at everything. Farming, math, technology, teaching, sports, etc., etc. We should be the best employees, bosses, and owners in the whole world.

God is the one who gives us wisdom (understanding and the ability to learn more), but we must apply ourselves to grow and continually expand in areas of understanding so we may bring honor to God.

PRAYER:

Dear God, we ask that you grant us more understanding of your Word, your will, and way of doing things.

Help us to apply ourselves to gaining more and more of your wisdom and knowledge. The latter comes largely from studying and doing, putting repeatedly into practice what we learn.

Help us to win so many more people to Christ while there is still time.

You give us the “ability to produce wealth” (Deuteronomy 8:18 ). Help us to produce this promise of yours in our lives.

God’s ministry work is not just within the 4 walls of the Church but in every sphere of life. The grocery store, the laundry mat, the hospital, the nursing home, and wherever you may be.

We must be filled with the love of Christ and his Word so we will be fully equipped to engage and fulfill God’s will on earth.

My brothers and sisters, we must engage, apply ourselves to learning more and more, becoming more and more diverse in every area of life so we can reach more and more people as we near the return of Jesus.

Most of the people we need to reach are out in the world. We need to prepare ourselves to, “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age” (Matthew 28:19-20 New International Version). For this is, “The Great Commission.”

Oh God, help us to please you, to treat our spouses, children, siblings, boss, oil man, insurance agent, …. fill in the blank … better.

Teach us and help us to be more selfless.

Help us to forsake all else, making sure that you (God) are first in our lives.

Let all be saved and baptized in your Holy Spirit, and with fire, Jesus baptize all with fire.

Bless us with financial overflow.

Father, we thank you and praise you in The Mighty, Precious, Holy, Awesome, Unmatchable, Name of Jesus, Amen!

MARINATE:

Meditate on these Scriptures:

“Nevertheless, God’s solid foundation stands firm, sealed with this inscription: “The Lord knows those who are his,” and, “Everyone who confesses the name of the Lord must turn away from wickedness.”
20 In a large house there are articles not only of gold and silver, but also of wood and clay; some are for special purposes and some for common use. 21 Those who cleanse themselves from the latter will be instruments for special purposes, made holy, useful to the Master and prepared to do any good work 22 Flee the evil desires of youth and pursue righteousness, faith, love and peace, along with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart. 
23 Don’t have anything to do with foolish and stupid arguments, because you know they produce quarrels. 24 And the Lord’s servant must not be quarrelsome but must be kind to everyone, able to teach, not resentful. 25 Opponents must be gently instructed, in the hope that God will grant them repentance leading them to a knowledge of the truth, 26 and that they will come to their senses and escape from the trap of the devil, who has taken them captive to do his will” (2 Timothy 2:19-26).

“The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective” (James 5:16 NIV).

“Pray without ceasing”
(1 Thessalonians 5:17).

Heavenly Father, thank you for your grace (unmerited favor) for your brand new mercies this morning

Thank you for waking us up, that we are on this side of the dirt. This is proof not only of your love for us but also of you have more plans for us at this place and time. We are excited yo do your will.

Your Word says, “You will keep him in perfect peace, Whose mind is stayed on You, Because he trusts in You” (Isaiah 26:3 NKJV). We meditate and think about the Name of Jesus, for you are, “the author and finisher of our faith” (Hebrews 12:2) who took pleasure (had great joy) in sacrificing your life so that we could have eternal life.

We fear not because you are with us, we are not troubled as those are lost because you are our God, you strengthen us and help us and uphold and support us each and every day (Isaiah 41:10).

We seek first your Kingdom and your righteousness (your will and way of doing things), and by doing so, you provide for our every need (Matthew 6:33).

Even when evil people try to harm us, we are not to fear because you protect us from them (Psalm 27:2).

We thank so much for in all the beauty and magnitude of your creation that
we are your, “masterpiece … created … anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago”
(Ephesians 2:10).

Thank you that with the faith you have provided and potential for growth and expansion you have given us that there are no impossibilities (Matthew 17:20) and with you (God) all things are possible (Luke 1:37).

So today, we pray your divine intervention into the affairs of mankind all across the globe. In America, the Middle East, China, Russia, every nation, kindred, tribe, and tounge. Bless everyone to accept Christ into their hearts before the end (while there is still time).

We pray for peace and immeasurable prosperity for Jerusalem and all of Israel even in the midst of these troubling times. You bless those who bless Israel (Genesis 12:3).

Bless your people to prosper in every area of our lives.

May our persecuted brothers and sisters be freed from their evil oppressors. We even pray for them (oppressors) to give their hearts to Jesus so they too will be saved.

Please let the Bible and Godly teaching and teachers reenter public schools and classrooms in America and around the world so our children can learn the  truth of your Word and be properly educated in all spheres of life. 

Dear Father, we ask that your Kingdom come, and that your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. In the heaven everthing is perfect. There is no evil, no poverty, sickness, pain, or death. There is only good. God lives there and we who are ‘born again’ will one day live there with him forever.

Father, let all be saved and baptized in your Holy Spirit and with fire while there is still time, in the Mighty Name of Jesus we pray, Amen!

CONFIRMING YOU SALVATION

This is the most important decision in life

Please pray, “Lord Jesus, I am a sinner in need of a Savior. I ask that you forgive me for all of my sins. I truly repent (I turn away from all sin) and I ask you to come into my heart and live. I accept you as Lord and Savior of my life. Please fill me with your Holy Spirit and wash me clean in the blood of the Lamb. I make a separation between me and the world (the lust of the eyes the lust of the flesh, and the pride of life, the sin of unbelief, the dark practices of this world such as drunkenness, sexual sin and every other kind of sin, right now. Today I profess that my name is written in the Lamb’s book of life. If you have said this prayer and meant it with all of your heart you can know beyond a shadow of a doubt that you are saved (born again) and that the Holy Spirit dwells in you. Please read: Psalm 69:28, Philippians 4:3, Hebrews 3:15, 1 John 2:15, Revelation 3:5, Revelation 7:14, Revelation 12:11,

If you have sincerely asked Jesus to come into your heart your name is now written in “the Lamb’s book of life” (Revelation 13:8), You are going to heaven and have escaped the evil destination of the ungodly (hell).

It is important that you establish a strong prayer life, read the Bible everyday, get connected to a Bible believing church, and grow in your relationship with the Lord.

Dead to Sin, Alive in Christ

“What shall we say, then? Shall we go on sinning so that grace may increase?b 2By no means! We are those who have died to sin; how can we live in it any longer? 3Or don’t you know that all of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? 4We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life.5For if we have been united with him in a death like his, we will certainly also beunited with him in a resurrection like his.h 6For we know that our old selfi was crucified with himj so that the body ruled by sink might be done away with,1 that we should no longer be slaves to sinl— 7because anyone who has died has been set free from sin.m8Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him. 9For we know that since Christ was raised from the dead, he cannot die again; death no longer has mastery over him. 10The death he died, he died to sinq once for all;r but the life he lives, he lives to God.
11In the same way, count yourselves dead to sins but alive to God in Christ Jesus. 12Therefore do not let sin reignt in your mortal body so that you obey its evil 13Do not offer any part of yourself to sin as an instrument of wickedness,u but rather offer yourselves to God as those who have been brought from death to life; and offer every part of yourself to him as an instrument of righteousness. 14For sin shall no longer be your master,w because you are not under the law, but under grace” (Romans 6:1-14 NIV). https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Romans+6&version=AMPC

Word based prayer, mixed with faith, is the most powerful thing we can do.

All Scripture references, unless otherwise noted, are from the New International Version.

NO MATTER WHAT YOU ARE FACING GOD CAN TURN ANY SITUATION AROUND

EXAMPLE:
The Parable of the Persistent Widow

“Then Jesus told his disciples a parable to show them that they should always pray and not give up. 2 He said: “In a certain  town there was a judge who neither feared God nor cared what people thought.  3 And there was a widow in that town who kept coming to him with the plea, ‘Grant me justice against my adversary.’ 4 “For some time he refused. But finally he said to himself, ‘Even though I don’t fear God or care what people think, 
5 yet because this widow keeps bothering me, I will see that she gets justice, so that she won’t eventually wear me out!’” 6 And the Lord said, “Listen to what the unjust judge says. 7 And will not God bring about justice for his chosen ones, who cry out to him day and night? Will he keep putting them off? 8 I tell you, he will see that they get justice, and quickly. However, when the Son of Man comes, will he find

faith on the earth?” (Luke 18:1-8).

We must stay in positions of prayer, praise, and worship as we face our battles. Prayer based on the Word of God is our greatest offensive weapon.

EXAMPLE:
The Israelites were in a battle with their enemies when God had Moses to take a position of intercession.
“As long as Moses held up his hands, the Israelites were winning, but whenever he lowered his hands, the Amalekites were winning. 12 When Moses’ hands grew tired, they took a stone and put it under him and he sat on it. Aaron and Hur held his hands up—one on one side, one on the other—so that his hands remained steady till sunset. 
13 So Joshua overcame the Amalekite army with the sword”
(Exodus 17:8-13).
We will win every battle if we stay in we stay (continue) in prayer.

“Pray continually” (1 Thessalonians 5:17).

“Blessed rather are those who hear the word of God and obey it (put it into practice)” (Luke 11:28).

“Great peace have those who love your law, and nothing can make them stumble”
(Psalm 119:165).

We serve God all day, every day, and stay focused on his Word.

How does our faith continue to grow?
“So then faith 
comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God”
(Romans 10:17 NKJV). Prayerfully read (study) the Word of God. Regarding the Bible, we must prayerfully read it,  meditate on it, ruminate “to think carefully and for a long period about something,” – in this case, the Word of God.

Beloved, God tells us, “Do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand” (Isaiah 41:10).

Also, we can be comforted in knowing that he is always with us and lovingly warns and directs us.

PAY CLOSE ATTENTION:

For he tells us, “Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you” (Hebrews 13:5).

Father, we intercede for our brothers and sisters in the faith. Please provide for everyone of their needs. We pray for salvation for all of their family members. We pray for those who are being persecuted not only to be set free from their oppressors but to love and pray for these evil people to give their hearts to Jesus.

We also pray for America and all nations to know Jesus while there is still enough time left.

We intercede for our enemies, those who hate us, asking you to please have mercy on them and draw them Jesus so they too will experience salvation.

Please bless President Biden and Vice President Harris and their administration to give their hearts to Jesus.

Please continue to fan the flames of revival in America and around the world. Holy Spirit, we acknowledge and accept your role in this.

Although we don’t understand it all perfectly, we recognize that God the Father, Jesus our Lord, and Holy Spirit work together in perfect unity.

Father, we lay down our lives for the sake of the gospel. Help us to continue to provide the only way of salvation. Bless us to win more and more souls (people) to Jesus while there is still time.

Please add your own prayer requests as the Spirit leads.

Father, thank you and praise for honoring our requests in the Mighty, Precious, Holy, Awesome, Unmatchable Name of Jesus, Amen!

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life” (John 3:16).

The biggest prison in the world is the Prison of SIN.

Satan, “the prince of the power of the air,” is the warden, and the only way of escape is through
Christ, our Lord.
And even for us who have been freed from this prison Ephesians 2 reminds us of how we once lived lived in this prison operating under the devil’s domain.

“As for you, you were dead in your transgressions and sins, 2 in which you used to live when you followed the ways of this world and of the ruler of the kingdom of the air, the spirit who is now at work in those who are disobedient. 3 All of us also lived among them at one time, gratifying the cravings of our flesh[a] and following its desires and thoughts. Like the rest, we were by nature deserving of wrath. 4 But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, 5 made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved. 6 And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, 7 in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, 
expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus. 8 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— 9 not by works, so that no one can boast. 10 For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.

Jew and Gentile Reconciled Through Christ
11 Therefore, remember that formerly you who are Gentiles by birth and called “uncircumcised” by those who call themselves “the circumcision” (which is done in the body by human hands)— 12 remember that at that time you were separate from Christ, excluded from citizenship in Israel and foreigners to the covenants of the promise, without hope and without God in the world. 
13 But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far away have been brought near by the blood of Christ. 14 For he himself is our peace, who has made the two groups one and has destroyed the barrier, the dividing wall of hostility, 
15 by setting aside in his flesh the law with its commands and regulations. His purpose was to create in himself one new humanity out of the two, thus making peace, 
16 and in one body to reconcile both of them to God through the cross, by which he put to death their hostility. 17 He came and preached peace to you who were far away and peace to those who were near. 18 For through him we both have access to the Father by one Spirit.
19 Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and strangers, but fellow citizens with God’s people and also members of his household, 20 built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the chief cornerstone. 
21 In him the whole building is joined together and rises to become a holy temple in the Lord. 22 And in him you too are being built together to become a dwelling in which God lives by his Spirit” (Ephesians 2:1-22 NIV).

The only way out is by way of the
THE ROMANS ROAD (JESUS).

Romans 5:8
“But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”

Romans 3:23
“For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.”

Romans 6:23
“For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

Romans 10:9
“That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.”

We must acknowledge that we are sinners (we have all missed the mark), in need of a Savior (Jesus), and while in the process of turning away from sin ask him to forgive us (repent) and accept him into our hearts as our Lord and Savior.

You can pray the following prayer out loud to Jesus.

Say Lord Jesus, I am a sinner, and I acknowledge that I can be saved by accepting you into my heart. I ask you to forgive me for all of my sins. Please come into my heart and live. I receive you as my personal Lord and Savior and as Master of my life. Please fill me with your Holy Spirit. These things I ask in your name. Amen.

If you have truly asked Christ to come into your heart, you can be assured that you are saved and on your way to heaven. But there is so much more!

If as a believer you have sinned you can be assured that if (being truly sorry) we ask Jesus to forgive us, truly repenting, turning away from it, God will forgive you.

Heavenly Father, we thank you, and praise you, for you gave your dearly loved Son for the sin of the world so we could be forgiven and live with you and you with us forever.

The Christian Broadcasting Network, a separate organization (unconnected with us), offers special info to help you better understand what accepting Jesus into your heart means.

November 12th,

This will require making an effort on your part and exercising great patience. Remember,
when we spend time with God that
we must always mix our efforts with faith or we fail to receive his best (see Hebrews11:6).

This is an excerpt from Dr. Tony Evans book (Chapter 12), titled, “Prayers for Victory in Spiritual Warfare.”

PRAYERS FOR FAVOR
Let the favor of the Lord our God be upon us;

And confirm for us the work of our hands;

Yes, confirm the work of our hands.

PSALM 90:17Favor is a powerful thing. Favor gives you good things you don’t necessarily deserve.
It also gives you what you need to accomplish what you couldn’t do on your own. Favorcan be given from person to person (Esther 2:17; 5:8; 7:3), from God to people (Genesis6:8; Psalm 84:11 ESV), or from both (Luke 2:52). Whatever the case, favor is something to pray for on a regular basis.

Nehemiah models this for us. In contemporary terms, he was a beast. He accomplished in 52 days what no one had done for Israel in 141 years. Nehemiah was a dedicated man who turned millions of people’s lives around for good through his hard work andcommitment—and by receiving favor.

We first find Nehemiah asking for favor in the opening chapter of the book named afterhim. He is distraught, discouraged, and near despair due to the plight of his people who survived the exile and returned to the province of Jerusalem, only to discover the walls broken down and the gates burned with fire. Nehemiah first sought the Lord,
repenting on behalf of himself and his people. Then he took action. He wanted to use his position as the cupbearer to King Artaxerxes to leverage support for his people.

So he asked God for favor. “ ‘Give your servant success today by granting him favorin the presence of this man.’ I was cupbearer to the king” (Nehemiah 1:11 NIV). As the story unfolds, we learn that God did indeed give Nehemiah favor with theking, and as a result, Nehemiah was well supplied and protected as he rebuilt the walls of Jerusalem

But Nehemiah’s wise request for favor did not stop there. Multiple times throughout the rest of the book we read things like this: “Remember me with favor, my God, forall I have done for these people” (Nehemiah 5:19 NIV). He even closes the book by praying, “Remember me with favor, my God” (Nehemiah13:31 NIV). Nehemiah wasn’t a perfect man. But he accomplished a lot in his life because hefound favor with God and the king. We often forget to ask for favor, and Satan triesto keep us from seeking favor because he doesn’t want us to fulfill the calling andpurpose God has for us.

What if Nehemiah had tried to rebuild Jerusalem without the king’s favor? Would hehave been so successful? What if he had tried to restore the spiritual state of hisnation without God’s favor? Favor is critical, and that’s why spiritual warfare includesasking for favor. Put On the Belt of TruthThe truth is, Lord, that Your favor lasts a lifetime. That is why I want it and askfor it. Your Word says, “His anger is but for a moment, and his favor is for a lifetime. Weeping may tarry for the night, but joy comes with the morning”
[Psalm 30:5 ESV]. Just as Abraham prayed in Genesis, I ask right now, “O Lord, if I have found favorin your sight, do not pass by your servant” [Genesis 18:3 ESV]. I ask that I would find favor with You, God, and with others who will be able to help me fulfill the purpose You have for my life. In Christ’s name, amen.

Put On the Breastplate of RighteousnessLord, You tell me in Your Word that I will find favor with You when I live my lifewith love and righteousness. “Let not steadfast love and faithfulness forsake you; bind them around your neck; write them on the tablet of your heart. So you will findfavor and good success in the sight of God and man” [Proverbs 3:3-4 ESV]. I want to live with steadfast love and faithfulness. Help me to make decisionsand to think thoughts that will help me live with both. Thank You. In Christ’s name, amen.

Put On the Shoes of PeaceThank You, God, that when I walk in peace, Your favor is upon me. “Toward the scornershe is scornful, but to the humble he gives favor” [Proverbs 3:34 ESV]. Humility walks in shoes of peace, Lord. I put on this peace because I seek Yourfavor. Give me favor not only with You but also with my family members, spouse, children, coworkers, and those who can open doors for me in order to accomplish what You havecalled me to do. When I am in Your presence, I find favor and peace. “The LORD make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you; the LORD lift up his countenance upon you and give you peace”
[Numbers 6:25-26 ESV]. In Christ’s name, amen.

Take Up the Shield of Faith Father God, Your favor carries with it a lot of power. It kept Esther alive when shecould have been killed. It provided the way for the escaping Israelites to have whatthey needed when they left Egypt. “I will give this people favor in the sight of the Egyptians; and when you go, you shall not go empty” [Exodus 3:21 ESV]. I have faith that whatever I am facing—a rift in a relationship, a financial burden,
a health issue, a job situation—if You will grant me favor, I can overcome. Grantthis favor, Lord, so that I will receive Your power. In Christ’s name, amen.

Take the Helmet of SalvationLord, my salvation started with favor. It was granted to a young girl who carriedthe Christ child in her womb. “And the angel said to her, ‘Do not be afraid, Mary,
for you have found favor with God’ ” [Luke 1:30 ESV]. Favor is a powerful thing, God. I ask You for favor in my relationships, on myjob, with my finances, and in my health. Most of all, Lord, give me favor with You. In Christ’s name, amen.

Take Up the Sword of the Spirit Heavenly Father, I take up the sword of the Spirit against Satan and say to You, “Youare the glory of their strength; by your favor our horn is exalted” [Psalm 89:17 ESV]. I have victory because of Your favor. I also stand against Satan by affirming thatI am covered by Your favor. “For you bless the righteous, O LORD; you cover him with favor as with a shield” [Psalm 5:12 ESV]. You are my sun and shield, and You bestow favor and honor [Psalm 84:11]. ThankYou for Your favor, God, because it is the key to my victory. In Christ’s name, amen
(Evans, pp. 64-66).

In every situation in life, we want to have God’s favor. Psalm 84:11 says, “For the LORD God is a sun and shield; the LORD bestows favor and honor; no good thing does he withhold from those whose walk is blameless.”

“What is the biblical meaning of favor?

God stepping into one’s situation – to make a worthwhile difference! Favor is not a feeling and it’s not something to earn! It’s a gift, a blessing from the Lord! Finding favor means – gaining approval – acceptance – or special benefits – or blessings!”

God, bless us with favor from you and with mankind. Bless everything we put our hands to. Bless us to own everywhere we go (Deuteronomy11:24)so the atmosphere will be filled with your presence blessing people to acknowledge and receive Christ into their hearts. Bless us to establish your Kingdom here on earth as it is in heaven.

Father, the number one reason for gaining wealth is to spread the gospel all over the world. In Luke 6:38 you tell us to, “Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom.”

Your Word also tells us that, “A sinner’s wealth is stored up for the righteous”
(Proverbs 13:22). Please bless us to experience living under an open heaven so much beyond what we have ever experienced before (Malachi 3:10-12).

We pray for the “peace of Jerusalem” (Psalm
122:6).

We bless Israel in the Name of Jesus (Genesis 12:3).

Let revival spread in greater and greater measure throughout the whole world. Bless all to be saved and baptized in your Holy Spirit and with fire. Jesus, baptize all with fire while there is still time.
We ask these things in Jesus’ Name. Amen!

WEEK 108
November 5th,

When we come into God’s presence, we are to give him praise. We give him honor for who he is.

Psalm 100:1-2 says,
“Shout for joy to the LORD, all the earth. 2Worship the LORD with gladness; come before him with joyful songs.”

When Jesus’ disciples were with him while he was in this world as a man they saw the amazing miracles he performed, how be blessed the blind to see, the dumb to speak, the deaf to hear, and how he brought the dead back to life. But when they approached him, they did not ask for power or wealth. They saw the connection (relationship) that he had with the Father and instead said, “Lord, teach us to pray … Jesus said, “This is how you should pray” (Luke 11:1-2).

What is often referred to as ‘The Lord’s Prayer’ is really a model prayer for us to follow. Please see and pray this following prayer patterned after the one he taught his disciples.

Praise you, Father, praise you, Jesus, Holy Spirit, we acknowledge your presence and divine role in the Godhead, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

Father,  we also thank you for sending your Son into the world to rescue us from hell, and because of his sacrifice, we now have become the righteousness of God in Christ.

Jesus, you are Jehovah-Nissi (The Lord our banner, our victory), Jehovah Tsidkenu (the Lord our Righteousness) and because of you we have become the righteousness of God in Christ. You are Jehovah Rapha (the Lord our healer), you are ʼĒl ʻElyōn (God Most High, you possess the heavens and the earth).

We pray for your Kingdom to come, for your will to be done on earth as it is in heaven, let all you desire for our lives and in everything be done here on earth as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread. Please continue to meet all our needs, spirit, soul, body, emotional,
financial, material, and in every way.

We claim Isaiah 53:5 that by your stripes (blood you shed for us), we were healed.
We believe and accept the fact that we have been set free  from, “The curse of the law (poverty, sickness, and spiritual death)” (Galatians 3:15), and for poverty you have given us wealth, for sickness you have given us health, and for death you have given us eternal life.

Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. Father, for us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us.

And lead us not into temptation but deliver us from the evil one. For yours is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory forever. Amen.

“So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.” “Worthy are you, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they existed and were created” (1 Corinthians 10:31).

Everything we do or choose not to do should be to bring glory and honor to God.

This is just a small snipet. There is so much more. Let’s continue to love God and grow in our relationship with him.

Please make a special time each day to pray and read the Bible and continue to pray intermittently throughout every day and night.

Pray continuously. Prayer must become to us as natural as breathing. Your life is a prayer.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

GIVE GOD GLORY
FAST AND PRAY TODAY
WEEK 107
SUNDAY, October 30th, 2023

Dear God, Creator of everything, we acknowledge your supremacy and give you glory, honor, and praise. You created everything.

The Apostle Psul said, “Let the one who boasts, boast in the Lord” (2 Corinthians 10:17 ESV).

We don’t lift ourselves up, we lift God up. We give honor, glory, and praise to God. We recognize that he is the giver of all good things (James 1:17)

“Boasting in the Lord involves us giving glory, praise, and honor to God for who he is and the good things he has done. Boasting in the Lord is not self-seeking or self-gratifying. Rather, it is centered around the Lord God who deserves all our glory and praise.”

Mike Livingstone correctly writes, “We all have the same calling: to glorify God in everything we do. This is why we are here. Scripture says God created us for His glory (Isa. 43:7) and instructs us to “do everything for the glory of God” (1 Cor. 10:31).

“To glorify God is not to bestow glory on God or add to His glory, but to recognize and acknowledge His glory. The basic meaning of the word glory is “heavy in weight.” It is the “weighty importance and shining majesty that accompany God’s presence.” The verb glorify 
means “to give weight to” or “to honor.” Thus, to glorify God is to recognize God for who He really is and to respond appropriately.”

EXPLORE THE BIBLE SHARES 1O WAYS TO GIVE GLORY (HONOR) TO GOD
Here are 10 scriptural ways we can glorify God:

1. Praise Him with your lips.

“My lips will glorify you” (Ps 63:3). The noblest use of our tongues is to give praise to God.

2. Obey His Word.

To the corrupt priests in Malachi’s day, the Lord said: “If you don’t listen, and if you don’t take it to heart to honor my name, … I will send a curse among you” (Mal. 2:2). How had they dishonored God’s name? They had disobeyed God’s Law by presenting defiled food on the altar (Mal. 1:6-7; see also Deut. 15:21).

3. Pray in Jesus’ name.

“Whatever you ask in my name, I will do it so that the Father may be glorified in the Son” (John 14:13). To pray in Jesus’ name is to align our prayers and desires with God’s purposes.

4. Produce spiritual fruit.

“My Father is glorified by this: that you produce much fruit and prove to be my disciples” (John 15:8). The fruit that issues out of our union with and obedience to Christ brings God glory. The Bible names several kinds of spiritual fruit, including: the fruit we bear when we win others to Christ (Rom. 1:13), the fruit of the Spirit (Gal. 5:22-23), and our good deeds (Col. 1:10).

5. Remain sexually pure.

“Flee sexual immorality! … glorify God with your body” (1 Cor. 6:18-20).

6. Seek the good of others.

“So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do everything for the glory of God” (1 Cor 10:31). The context is Paul’s discussion of whether it was right for believers to eat meat offered to idols. He stated the guiding principle in verse 24, “No one is to seek his own good, but the good of the other person.” When we make lifestyle choices for the good of others, we glorify God.

7. Give generously.

The result of the Corinthians’ giving to the poor believers in Jerusalem would be that “they will glorify God for your obedient confession of the gospel of Christ, and for your generosity” (2 Cor. 9:13).

8. Live honorably among unbelievers.

“Conduct yourselves honorably among the Gentiles, so that when they slander you as evildoers, they will observe your good works and will glorify God on the day he visits” (1 Pet. 2:12). Jesus said, “let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven” (Matt. 5:16).

9. Be faithful when persecuted.

“But if anyone suffers as a Christian, let him not be ashamed but let him glorify God in having that name” (1 Pet. 4:16). If we want to glorify God, then we’ll not be ashamed of the name of Jesus.

10. Face death with faith.

Jesus predicted Peter would die as a martyr and “would glorify God” in his death (John 21:19). Paul hoped Christ would be glorified in his death (Phil. 1:20). We can show God to be great in the way we approach death because we know “to live is Christ and to die is gain” (Phil. 1:21).

2 Samuel 7:22 (New King James Version)

Therefore You are great, O Lord God. For there is none like You, nor is there any God besides You, according to all that we have heard with our ears.

GOD WANTS OUR HEARTS

God created everything and doesn’t need anything, but he has created us to participate and partner with him for eternity.

1. He tells us, “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. 20 But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. 21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also”
(Matthew 6:19-21).

2. Just as how we speak reveals who who we are (A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil; for of the abundance of his heart his mouth speaketh” (Luke 6:45 KJV)U, so does how we use our money

In Psalm 50 God says, “I have no need of a bull from your stall or of goats from your pens, 10for every animal of the forest is mine, and the cattle on a thousand hills.11I know every bird in the mountains, and the creatures of the field are mine.

http://web.mit.edu/jywang/www/cef/Bible/NIV/NIV_Bible/PS+50.html

In the book of Malachi chapter 3, he says, “Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,” says the LORD Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that you will not have room enough for it.11I will prevent pests from devouring your crops, and the vines in your fields will not cast their fruit before the time in the field, saith the Lord of hosts.”

http://web.mit.edu/jywang/www/cef/Bible/NIV/NIV_Bible/MAL+3.html

Proverbs 3
Honor the LORD with your wealth, with the firstfruits of all your crops;10then your barns will be filled to overflowing, and your vats will brim over with new wine

When we honor God by giving him first place in our finances, he honors it by blessing us in ways we can not imagine. When we put him first in our lives, we walk under his anointing. It is God’s nature to give extravagantly. When he he wanted a family, he gave his dearly loved Son, Jesus.

This is not a “get rich
scheme.” It’s a love affair with God.

As good as it is the ultimate marriage is not between a man and a woman but being married to Jesus, our Master, Lord, and Savior.

Father, we desire to know you better. We realize our need to be in a deeper relationship with you. In your desire to help Israel return to you you told them, “Behold, I am going to send My [a]messenger, and he will prepare and clear the way before Me. And the Lord [the Messiah], whom you seek, will suddenly come to His temple; the [b]Messenger of the covenant, in whom you delight, behold, He is coming,” says the Lord of hosts. 2 But who can endure the day of His coming? And who can stand when He appears? For He is like a refiner’s fire and like launderer’s soap [which removes impurities and uncleanness]. 3 He will sit as a refiner and purifier of silver, and He will purify the sons of Levi [the priests], and refine them like gold and silver, so that they may present to the Lord [grain] offerings in righteousness. 4 Then the offering of Judah and Jerusalem will be pleasing to the Lord as in the days of old and as in ancient years.

5 “Then I will come near you for judgment; I will be a swift witness against sorcerers, against adulterers, against perjurers, and against those who oppress the laborer in his wages and widows and the fatherless, and against those who turn away the alien [from his right], and those who do not fear Me [with awe-filled reverence],” says the Lord of hosts. 6 “For I am the Lord, I do not change [but remain faithful to My covenant with you]; that is why you, O sons of Jacob, have not come to an end.

7 “From the days of your fathers you have turned away from My statutes and 

ordinances and have not kept them. Return to Me, and I will return to you,” says the Lord of hosts. “But you say, ‘How shall we return?’

You Have Robbed God

8 “Will a man rob God? Yet you are robbing Me! But you say, ‘In what way have we robbed You?’ In tithes and offerings [you have withheld]. 9 You are cursed with a curse, for you are robbing Me, this whole nation! 10 Bring all the tithes (the tenth) into the storehouse, so that there may be [d]food in My house, and test Me now in this,” says the Lord of hosts, “if I will not open for you the windows of heaven and pour out for you [so great] a blessing until there is no more room to receive it (Malachi 3:7-10 AMP).

So help us to honor you in our giving. The first 10th of all we earn or gain is yours. The truth is that everything is yours, but you tell us to give just 10%. Of course, we are to give offerings as the Spirit leads us.

We love you so much, Father, and honor you in our giving. We believe your Word and receive your blessings.

May all be saved and baptized in your Holy Spirit and with fire, in Jesus’ Name, Amen!

Of course, there is so much more!

A GLIMPSE REVISED:

They conspire against Israel.

Psalm 83:4
“Come,” they say, “let us destroy them as a nation, that the name of Israel be remembered no more.”
http://web.mit.edu/jywang/www/cef/Bible/NIV/NIV_Bible/PS+46.html

Revelation 16:12
Refers to the kings of the east coming against Israel as well.

Along with Satan, radical Islam will attempt to defeat and destroy Israel. If they were successful, and they won’t be, this would eliminate any of the claims of Holy God and the Bible.

Refering to China’s
Revelation 16:12 says, “The sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates, and its water was dried up, to prepare the way for the kings from the east.”

Who are Gog and Magog in the Bible verse?

“The defeat of Gog will demonstrate the greatness and holiness of God and restore good relations between God and his people. In the Revelation to John (20:7–10), the names Gog and Magog are applied to the evil forces that will join in the great struggle at the end of time.” This
This refers to radical Islam.

Russia (“The bear of the north”) and it appears North Korea China, and radical Islam, who are all connecting to do evil are parts of the ten nations destined to attempt to take over the world (establishing a one world government desiring to control commerce (destroying the American dollar (even making it a cashless society), food, religion, gaining allegiance of those who have rejected Christ and received the mark of the beast (the devil). This would also be according to prohecy that people will not be able to buy or sell unless they have the mark (666). Revelation 13:18

Revelation 12 shows that somehow the devil knows that his days are numbered therefore he has stepped the pace of spreading his evil (drugs, pornography, murders, identity confusion, robberies, gambling industry, and every other evil). Satan

But we who know Jesus as our Lord and Savior are not to fear because at just the right time, Jesus will reappear on the Mount of Olives to defeat all of Israel’s enemies.

1 John 3:5-6
“You know that Christ appeared in order to take away sins, and that there is no sin in him. 6 So everyone who lives in union with Christ does not continue to sin; but whoever continues to sin has never seen him or known him.
https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=1+John+3&version=GNT

God is s – – o gentle yet s – – o powerful!
As the creator of all things, He understands how we who practice kindness are taken for granted.

A true relationship with Jesus changes us.

A personal testimony of how Jesus has changed your life beats a philosophy any day of the week.

As Christians:

We don’t use foul language

We don’t practice lying

We don’t use alcohol or other drugs

We don’t sleep around

We don’t practice deceit

We love our enemies

We are not people pleasers

We are not deceived

We love our enemies

We don’t retaliate or take revenge on those who have done wrong to us

When you live as a Christian, the Psalms largely written by David make sense to you regarding enemies coming against you who are not of your own making, but because we are living Godly lives. Our focused prayers for them are not for their destruction but for God’s mercies and forgiveness to be received by them.

As tempting as it may sometimes be, never take revenge on anyone who has wronged you.
“Dear friends, never take revenge. Leave that to the righteous anger of God. For the Scriptures say, “I will take revenge; I will pay them back,” says the LORD” Romans 12:19 NLT).

Galatians 6:7-8 King James Version (KJV)Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.

Father, help us to live out our faith during these wicked times so that we may win more and more people to Christ.

Bless us as we put you first in everything.

Jesus, you are God Almighty, and no one can come to the Father except through you. Also, no one can come to you unless the Father draws them. In you alone can a person find wholeness. We love you, we praise you, we magnify, lift up the Name of Jesus, so that you may draw all people to yourself.

God, save America while there is still time. Deliver her from the attacks of the devil and demons and tyrants who desire to destroy her.

Father, we fully submit ourselves to you. Lord Jesus, rule and reign in our hearts and minds.

Let all be saved and baptized in your Holy Spirit and with fire.

When asked which is the greatest commandment, Jesus said,
“‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ The second is this, ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.” (Mark 12:30-31).
John 3:16 
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.

God Is Love
1 John 4:7-21

King James Version

7 Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.

8 He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.

9 In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.

10 Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.

11 Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another.

12 No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us.

13 Hereby know we that we dwell in him, and he in us, because he hath given us of his Spirit.

14 And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Savior of the world.

15 Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God.

16 And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.

17 Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world.

18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.

19 We love him, because he first loved us.

20 If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen?

21 And this commandment have we from him, That he who loveth God love his brother also.

“Anyone who loves God must also love their brother and sister.”

1 Corinthians 13

English Standard Version

The Way of Love

13 If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. 3 If I give away all I have, and if I deliver up my body to be burned,[a] but have not love, I gain nothing.

4 Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant 5 or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful;[b] 6 it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. 7 Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

8 Love never ends. As for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away. 9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part, 10 but when the perfect comes, the partial will pass away. 11 When I was a child, I spoke like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I gave up childish ways. 12 For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I have been fully known.

13 So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.

 

“And now there remain: faith [abiding trust in God and His promises], hope [confident expectation of eternal salvation], love [unselfish love for others …”

We must love and pray for our enemies also.

Father, we lay down our lives for Christ, that we may love and serve you with all of our heart, soul, mind and strength, and love one another as we love ourselves.

It is unfortunate that not all adhere to the call of God and really knowingly experience (cognizantly) know or acknowledge
His love for us, which is shown in His Word, and through His action toward us.

Let’s pray and give honor to God, our Maker.

Oh, how awesome you are, dear God. Your wisdom and power are seen throughout creation. Even though the clouds, sun, moon, and stars do not utter words, they speak profoundly of your ability, power, and might.

Your love is encomparable. Your wisdom is unsearchable. Your might can not even be imagined. Yet, your purpose and plans, you reveal to mankind.

You are mindful that we but dust and are careful in how you help and care for us. You know everything about us and you … “reward” us …

Each morning, you give us a brand new start for which we are eternally grateful. When we truly repent, you choose not to remember our sins anymore.

We are so honored that we know the true and Living God. I am so happy that you see me everywhere I go. You so wonderfully and beautifully made each of us. You watch over us everywhere we go. You give us joy, too wonderful for words.

Thank you for your grace, “unmerited favor,” for your special plans for our lives.

God, you know everything from beginning to end. You choose people for your divine purposes. Use us mightily to do your will.

Thank you for your goodness.

May your Kingdom be established on earth as it is in heaven.

May all be saved and baptized in your Holy Spirit and with fire.

Please have your way our lives, completely.

In these last days, we must be prepared, for our enemy, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion looking looking for someone to devour! He comes to steal, kill, and destroy. That’s his MO.

“But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. 2 People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3 without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, 4 treacherous, rash, conceited, 
lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God— 5 having a form of godliness 
but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people” (2 Timothy 3:1-5).

Remember, the devil comes to bring division, but God wants us to have unity in Christ.

“Be strong in the Lord [be empowered through your union with Him]; draw your strength from Him [that strength which His boundless might provides].

11 Put on God’s whole armor [the armor of a heavy-armed soldier which God supplies], that you may be able successfully to stand up against [all] the strategies and the deceits of the devil.

12 For we are not wrestling with flesh and blood [contending only with physical opponents], but against the despotisms, against the powers, against [the master spirits who are] the world rulers of this present darkness, against the spirit forces of wickedness in the heavenly (supernatural) sphere.

13 Therefore put on God’s complete armor, that you may be able to resist and stand your ground on the evil day [of danger], and, having done all [the crisis demands], to stand [firmly in your place].

14 Stand therefore [hold your ground], having tightened the belt of truth around your loins and having put on the breastplate of integrity and of moral rectitude and right standing with God,

15 And having shod your feet in preparation [to face the enemy with the [a]firm-footed stability, the promptness, and the readiness [b]produced by the good news] of the Gospel of peace.

16 Lift up over all the [covering] shield of [c]saving faith, upon which you can quench all the flaming missiles of the wicked [one].

17 And take the helmet of salvation and the sword that the Spirit wields, which is the Word of God.

18 Pray at all times (on every occasion, in every season) in the Spirit, with all [manner of] prayer and entreaty. To that end keep alert and watch with strong purpose and perseverance, interceding in behalf of all the saints (God’s consecrated people)”
(Ephesians 6:10-18).

PRAYER DECLARING GOD’S WORD:

Father, we put on your full armor,

On your belt of truth

On your breastplate of righteousness

We shod our feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace

We take up the shield of faith to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one!

We put on your helmet of salvation

On your sword of the spirit which is the Word of God

We will do all things through Christ who strengthens us!

Our God has met all our needs by Christ Jesus!

No weapon forged against us shall prosper!

This is the day that the Lord has made we will rejoice and be glad in it!

We have given, and it is given unto us,  good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over, men give unto our bosom.

Great is the peace of our children and grandchildren, for they are taught of the Lord!

Great peace have we who love the your law, and nothing can make us stumble (offend us)!

We bring all the tithes into the storehouse, and you pour down so many blessings that we can’t even contain them all!

You have set up good works in advance for us to do, and we will do them!

We sought the Lord, and he heard us and delivered us from all our fears!

We are blessed going out and coming in, in the city, and in the field!

When evil people attack us, they will be defeated!

God has not given us a spirit of fear but of power, love, and a sound mind!

Lord, you are the first and the last, the beginning and the end, the author and finisher of our faith!
You are from everlasting ages past, the Creator of all things, our soon coming King!

You quote more of God’s truths from his Word.

Father, we submit ourselves to you, we would rather be doorkeepers in your house than dwell in the tents of the wicked, where they take your Name in vain, where they disrepect their parents and teach their children to do evil, where drug use is the norm and stealing is constant, and every other evil is practiced. We choose to live in your house, Lord. Search our hearts, oh Lord, and see if there is any foul way in us, and take it out. Remove it far from our midst. Jesus, you said, ““Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. 2 In My Father’s house are many [a]mansions; if it were not so, [b]I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also” (John 14:1-3).

Jesus, we know that you will come again to take us to be with you forever, and we are eternally grateful.

Lord, also help us to glorify you in our deeds here on earth as we await your return. “Let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven” (Matthew 5:16).

The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it,
    the world, and all who live in it;
2 for he founded it on the seas and established it on the waters. 3 Who may ascend the mountain of the 
Lord? Who may stand in his holy place? 4 The one who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not trust in an idol or swear by a false god” (Psalm24:1-4).

Please give us more of your wisdom. Your Word also says, “The fruit of the [consistently] righteous is a tree of life, And he who is wise captures 
and wins souls [for God—he gathers them for eternity]”
(Proverbs 11:30 AMP).

Please draw us closer to you by your Holy Spirit – “Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded” (James 4:8 NKJV).

Dear God, we are so excited about our future in ““A new heaven and a new earth” (Revelation 21:1), but we don’t want it only for ourselves. We want all people to be saved from the coming destruction and gain eternal life, too.

Father, let the Word of God go forth throughout the entire world so people can hear about Jesus and give their hearts to him while there is still time.

For those who are partaking in this prayer, may your desires line up with God’s and be fulfilled, and may all your needs be met in Christ.

Heavenly Father, we thank you and praise you for honoring our prayers, in the Mighty, Holy, Awesome, Unmatchable, Name of Jesus! Amen!

Nothing is more important than our relationship with God, the One who made us. When The Creator dwells in us, it is impossible not to share him. His love permeates our entire being, and our chief role becomes that of rescuing others from and leading them to heaven by receiving Christ as their Lord and Savior.

John 3:16-17 NIV
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, [6] that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.17For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.

1 John 3:16a
This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us.

1 John 3
1How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him.

Ephesians 2:8-10
For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith–and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God–9not by works, so that no one can boast.10For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.

When we get saved (born again), we want others to know about his grace (unmerited favor) and his sacrifice and gift of salvation, too.

In fact, “For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do” (Ephesians 2:10), and the greatest work is leading others into a personal relationship with Jesus.

Proverbs 11:30 KJVThe fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; And he that winneth souls is wise.

Dear God, thank you so much for giving your Son, Jesus, as a sacrifice to pay for our sins, blessing us to escape hell and make it into heaven. Please bless us under the anointing of the Holy Spirit to lead others into a personal relationship with Jesus so that they, too, will be blessed in the same way. Let all be saved and baptized in your Holy Spirit and with fire. Jesus, baptize them in fire.

We pray for all leaders in America and around the world to give their hearts to Jesus. Give them Godly wisdom to make the right decisions so all citizens can have peace and freedom to worship you and freely share the gospel with our neighbors and with everyone around the world.

Please meet the needs of your people. Bless our prodigals to return to the Lord, bless us to have our bills paid, our properties fixed (repaired), heal our bodies, and bless us to be right in the center of your will for our lives.

Bless America and all nations to be on fire for Jesus.

Thank you and praise you, in the Mighty Name of Jesus! Amen!

Oh God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, with great joy we sing unto you. We give you the honor, glory, and praise that is due to you! You are too wonderful for us to thank you or praise you enough for who you are and for what you do.

Right now, we sing praise to you with this song, “Thank you, Lord, Thank you, Lord, Thank you, Lord, We just want to thank you, Lord,

Been so good, Been so good, You’ve been so good, We just want to thank you, Lord,

Praise you, Lord, Praise you, Lord, Praise you, Lord, WE just want to praise you, Lord,

Thank you, Lord, Been so good, Praise you, Lord, We just want to thank you, Lord,

Father, just as you set Israel free from physical slavery so you have set us free from slavery to sin. We are no longer ruled by our fleshly nature.

Example of those who live in rebellion to God:

“19 The acts of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, 
impurity and debauchery; 20 idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions 21 and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God” (Galatians 5:19-21).

Dear God, thank you for setting us free, for we are now led by the Holy Spirit.

And, “The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law” (Galatians 5:22-23).

Lord, we serve no other God, but you. For all others are but false gods and idols whose origins are from evil people, the devil, and demons.

You rescue us from every enemy and have crowned us with glory and honor, and you have given us dominion over all your works. Help us to be good stewards over all you have blessed us with. We take authority everywhere we go and receive all your blessings.

These things we pray, decree, declare, and receive, in Jesus’ Name, Amen!

Now, brothers and sisters, please bring all your concerns, challenges, problems, burdens before the Lord, and give them to him. Let him fight your battles, repent of any sins in your life, commit your life completely to Jesus, and he will surely give you victory.

Among other Scriptures, see Psalm Psalm 8:5–8; 1 Peter 5:7;

Please reverently read the following, and pray.
https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=1%20Corinthians%202&version=NLT

1 Corinthians 1:25
For the foolishness of God is wiser than human wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than human strength.

Isaiah 55:7-11
Correction:
Isaiah 55:7-11

New International Version

7 Let the wicked forsake their ways
    and the unrighteous their thoughts.
Let them turn to the Lord, and he will have mercy on them,
    and to our God, for he will freely pardon.
8 “For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
    neither are your ways my ways,”
declares the Lord.
9 “As the heavens are higher than the earth,
    so are my ways higher than your ways
    and my thoughts than your thoughts.
10 As the rain and the snow
    come down from heaven,
and do not return to it
    without watering the earth
and making it bud and flourish,
    so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater,
11 so is my word that goes out from my mouth:
    It will not return to me empty,
but will accomplish what I desire
    and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.

God even ordered the oceans, saying, (Job 48:8-11) “Who shut up the sea behind doors when it burst forth from the womb,9when I made the clouds its garment and wrapped it in thick darkness,10when I fixed limits for it and set its doors and bars in place,11when I said, `This far you may come and no farther; here is where your proud waves halt’?

Heavenly Father, you are immeasurably greater than the natural mind can imagine. You created everything by your great power and might, the sun, moon, newfound galaxies, time, all living creatures, and things yet to be discovered. You are truly awesome!

PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS IS NOT MEANT TO SINGLE ANYONE OUT AS IT RELATES TO SAYING THAT THIS ONE IS WORSE THAN THAT ONE BUT ALL OF US HAVE SINNED AND NEED TO REPENT. AND NO MATTER WHAT YOU HAVE DONE, GOD STILL LOVES YOU!

Lord, as we look at the world today, we see the unfortunate conditions that come as a result of mankind turning away from you. Men having sex with men, women having sex with women, how their performing operations on children in failed efforts to change how you created them to be. This is like madness on steroids, and America has been at the forefront of the these, and many other evil deeds permeating the world.

God, we need your intervention. Please help America, Russia, China, North Korea, and every nation, kindred, and tongue to open their hearts, repent, and give their hearts to him while there is still time.

Please intervene even further so that sex traffic will be stopped. Rescue the victims of this horrible practice and have the perpetrators brought to justice. And please bless both to give their hearts to Jesus.

Send revival in greater measure all around the world. Let it spread outside of what is known as the four walls of the Church out into every area of the world, cities, towns, villages, and remote areas of the world, until everyone has heard the gospel message. Your Word says that this will happen before the end comes. We pray for all people to give us hearts to Jesus while there is still time.

Please bless we, your people, to get all of our bills paid.

Please bless us to truly love you with all of heart, soul, mind, and strength and to love each other as we love ourselves.

May your Kingdom come, and may your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.

Jesus, you are the Author and Finisher of our faith. We look to you. For you are our joy, God’s wisdom, our Keeper, soon coming King, and Maker of everything (John 1:3; Colossians1:16;).

These things we ask and receive in the Mighty, Precious, Holy, Unmatchable Name of Jesus, Amen!

Hi, we love you!

Please take your time to read this and pray along with us.

Lord, may you bless your people today in unprecedented ways.

“Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will” (Romsns 12:2).

“You will keep him in perfect peace,
Whose mind is stayed on You, Because
he trusts in You”
(Isaiah 26:3).

“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; 7 and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus”
(Philippians 4:6-7).

“For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders.
And he will be called
Wonderful Counselor, 

Mighty God, Everlasting 
Father, Prince of Peace” (Isaiah 9:6).

“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled 
and do not be afraid” (John 14:27).

But to you who are listening I say: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you” (Luke 6:27-28).

Dear Father, thank you for waking us up this morning. We desire nothing more than to please you and see your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.

Jesus, you are the, “Prince of Peace” and the peace you give us “Passes all understanding.”

We die to our fleshly desires, those things outside of your will. Our desire is to to please you, and bring honor to your Name.

Rather than to focus on fighting our enemies and taking revenge on them we choose to love and pray for them, and let you fight our battles.

Jesus, you said, “In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world” (John 16:33), and by so doing you have made us to be overcomers.

We are victorious in Christ and we will do all things, “Through him who gives me (us) strength” (Philippians 4:13).

Father, we love our enemies and do good to those who hate us, we bless those who curse us, and pray for those who mistreat us.

Lord Jesus, thank you so much for blessing us to be the, “Light of the world” (Matthew 5:14) just as you are the, “Light of the world” (John 8:12) because you dwell in us and we reflect you.

We pray these things in Jesus’ Name, Amen!

Father, you see how the devil has forged an all-out assault against the world, how he stops at nothing in his attempt to destroy people made in your image, even to the point as something as cruel as to change their God ordained identities. For truly and without confusion, you made them male and female, a man to be a man and a woman to be a woman. “Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, in our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth,  
and over all the creatures that move along the ground. So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.28God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air and over every living creature that moves on the ground” (Genesis 1:26-28).

PRAY
Father, give us wisdom to walk uprightly, bringing honor to your name. Bless us to please you in word and in deed.

Deliver us from every false way.

And now we pray,
“The LORD is my light and my salvation– whom shall I fear? The LORD is the stronghold of my life– of whom shall I be afraid? 2When evil men advance against me to devour my flesh, [1] when my enemies and my foes attack me, they will stumble and fall.3Though an army besiege me, my heart will not fear; though war break out against me, even then will I be confident.
One thing I ask of the LORD, this is what I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the LORD and to seek him in his temple.5For in the day of trouble he will keep me safe in his dwelling; he will hide me in the shelter of his tabernacle and set me high upon a rock.6Then my head will be exalted above the enemies who surround me; at his tabernacle will I sacrifice with shouts of joy; I will sing and make music to the LORD.7Hear my voice when I call, O LORD; be merciful to me and answer me.8My heart says of you, “Seek his [2] face!” Your face, LORD, I will seek.9Do not hide your face from me, do not turn your servant away in anger; you have been my helper. Do not reject me or forsake me, O God my Savior.10Though my father and mother forsake me (that is to say, if my parents were to forsake me, emphasis mine), the LORD will receive me.11Teach me your way, O LORD; lead me in a straight path because of my oppressors.12Do not turn me over to the desire of my foes, for false witnesses rise up against me, breathing out violence.13I am still confident of this: I will see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living.14(I will), emphasis mine)Wait for the LORD; be strong and take heart and wait for the LORD” (Psalm 27).

Father, please let all be saved and baptized in your Holy Spirit and with fire, while there is still time.

Please have mercy on America. Help her to see the error of her ways and turn back to the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, accepting Jesus as Lord and Savior.

Thank you, and praise you for all of these things,
in Jesus’ Mighty Name, Amen!

On his way to Calvary (death on the Cross, Jesus warned his disciples,
“A time is coming 
and, in fact, has come when you will be scattered, each
to your own home. You will leave me all alone. Yet I am not alone, for my Father is with me.
33 “I have
told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world” (John 16:32-33 NIV).

“Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God, and everyone who loves the father loves his child as well. 2 This is how we know that we love the children of God: by loving God and carrying out his commands. 3 In fact, this is love for God: to keep his commands. And his commands are not burdensome, 4 for everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith. 5 Who is it that overcomes the world? Only the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God” (1 John 5:1-5).

The Scriptures make it clear that we will face opposition in this fallen world. But Jesus is our source of confidence and inspiration. By dying on the Cross he defeated every curse, the devil and every demon,  poverty, sickness, spiritual death, and all evil associated with this fallen world, and even death which is the greatest fear for people who are not saved. For it is written of Jesus, “Since the children have flesh and blood, he too shared in their humanity so that by his death he might break the power of him who holds the power of death—that is, the devil— 15 and free those who all their lives were held in slavery by their fear of death”
(Hebrews 2:14-15).

Regarding the devil and demons and people under their influence (those who oppose us), the Scriptures quote Jesus telling us (God’s children) “I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you” (Luke 10:19).

Heavenly Father, thank you for sending your Son, Jesus, into this fallen world to die on the Cross that we might receive salvation.

Thank you that by Jesus’ sacrifice we have been rescued and received complete victory in every area of our lives. “Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us, for it is written: “Cursed is everyone who is hung on a pole.” 14 He redeemed us in order that the blessing given to Abraham might come to the Gentiles through Christ Jesus, so that by faith we might receive the promise of the Spirit”
(Galatians 3:13-14).
I repeat that this includes victory over poverty, sickness, and spiritual death.

Dear Father, we thank you, and receive your Word (promises) for our lives. We are completely victorious in Christ Jesus, our Lord!

We ask that you will pour out your Spirit upon all flesh” (Acts 2:17).

 

“‘In the last days, God says,
    I will pour out my Spirit on all people.
Your sons and daughters will prophesy,
    your young men will see visions,
    your old men will dream dreams” (Acts 3:17).

Bless we your people to go forward under the anointing of the Holy Spirit to do your  will on earth, the things you planned in advance.

“And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues; 18 they will pick up snakes with their hands; and when they drink deadly poison, it will not hurt them at all; they will place their hands on sick people, and they will get well”
(Mark 16:17-18).

“For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do” (Ephesians 2:10).

Thank uou for your protection. “No weapon formed against you shall prosper,
And every tongue which rises against you in judgment
You shall condemn.
This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord,
And their righteousness is from Me,”
Says the Lord”(Isaiah 54:17 NKJV).

Please bless our children to be on fire for Jesus. “All your children shall be taught by the Lord,
And great shall be the peace of your children” (Isaiah 54:17).

We pray for every person to be saved and baptized in your Holy Spirit and with fire. We thank you, and praise you for answering these prayers, in Jesus’ Name, Amen!

“If you are wise and understand God’s ways, prove it by living an honorable life, doing good works with the humility that comes from wisdom. 14 But if you are bitterly jealous and there is selfish ambition in your heart, don’t cover up the truth with boasting and lying. 15 For jealousy and selfishness are not God’s kind of wisdom. Such things are earthly, unspiritual, and demonic. 16 For wherever there is jealousy and selfish ambition, there you will find disorder and evil of every kind.
17 But the wisdom from above is first of all pure. It is also peace loving, gentle at all times, and willing to yield to others. It is full of mercy and the fruit of good deeds. It shows no favoritism and is always sincere. 18 And those who are peacemakers will plant seeds of peace and reap a harvest of righteousness” (James 3:13-18 NLT).

“Let this same attitude and purpose and [humble] mind be in you which was in Christ Jesus: [Let Him be your example in humility:] 6 Who, although being essentially one with God and in the form of God [[a]possessing the fullness of the attributes which make God God], did not [b]think this equality with God was a thing to be eagerly grasped [c]or retained, 7 But stripped Himself [of all privileges and [d]rightful dignity], so as to assume the guise of a servant (slave), in that He became like men and was born a human being. 8 And after He had appeared in human form, He abased and humbled Himself [still further] and carried His obedience to the extreme of death, even the death of the cross! 9 Therefore [because He stooped so low] God has highly exalted Him and has [e]freely bestowed on Him the name that is above every name, 10 That in (at) the name of Jesus every knee [f]should (must) bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
11 And every tongue [[g]frankly and openly] confess 
and acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father”
(Philippians 2:5-11 (AMPC).

PRAYER:

Father, we fast and pray for Godly wisdom so we can live lives that please you.

Let the same mind of Christ be ours also.

Teach us more and more of your ways, lead us in a straight path.

We also pray for the peace of Jerusalem (Psalm 122:6).

Please let the entire world hear the gospel. May all people accept Christ into their hearts while there is still time.

Please meet every need we are facing right now, wayward childten, financial situations, housing, relationships, desire for a spouse, and everthing else. 

Thank you and you, and praise you, in the Mighty Name of Jesus, we pray. Amen!

On Not Loving the World

“Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father[d] is not in them. 16 For everything in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—comes not from the Father but from the world. 
17 The world and its desires pass away, but whoever does the will of God lives forever” (1 John 3:15-17 NIV).

Please prayerfully reflect on the following Scriptures as we approach God today.

He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation. 16 Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will becondemned. 
17 And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues; 18 they will pick up snakes with their hands; and when they drink deadly poison, it will not hurt them at all; they will place their hands on sick people, and they will get well.”
19 After the Lord Jesus had spoken to them, he was taken up into heaven and he sat at the right hand of God. 20 Then the disciples went out and preached everywhere, and the Lord worked with them and confirmed his word by the signs that accompanied it” (Matthew 16:15-20).

“You will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth” (Acts 1:8).

“When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. 2 Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting.

3 They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. 4 All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues[a] as the Spirit enabled them” (Acts 2:1-4).

It is just impossible to know the Creator of the universe and not share him with others.

PRAY:

Father, as we fast and pray that you help us to be led by the Holy Spirit and with faith and boldness as we take the gospel to a lost and hurting world, that we may win them Christ in greater numbers than ever before in history.

Let all groups, ages, and ethnicities give their life to Jesus while there is still time.

Revive your Church individually and corporately. Bless us to lay hands on the sick  that they may recover. Let the dead be raised to life again, let the deaf hear, the dumb speak, the lame walk, and all other kinds of miracles take place as we go about being led by the Spirit of God. Bless us to cast out demons, lay hands on the sick that they may recover, to speak with new tongues, and do all that you have commanded us to do.

Bless your people to lack nothing. Let all that you have provided for us, in every area of our lives, be manifested in our lives.

Let all be saved and baptized in the Holy Spirit and with fire while there is still time.

And please give us what we did not even know to ask for.

These things we ask in the Mighty, Precious, Holy, Awesome, Unmatchable, Name of Jesus, Amen!

Dear God, Thank you for blessing us with faith, and for your grace (unmerited – unearned – favor) and for your goodness poured out upon us. Thank you for drawing us to you by your Holy Spirit. These are truly acts of love. God is love (1 John 4:8,16) and
“Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights”
(James1:17). “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: 9 Not of works, lest any man should boast”
(Ephesians 4:8-9).

Give us more wisdom that we may use our faith wisely.
See

We kèep looking to you, Jesus, for you are the, “The author and finisher of our faith” (Hebrews 12:2).

“Help us as we walk on a straight path, in the light of your presence.
“Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life” (John 8:12). “Let thine eyes look right on, and let thine eyelids look straight before thee.

“Ponder the path of thy feet, and let all thy ways be established. 27 Turn not to the right hand nor to the left: remove thy foot from evil” (Proverbs 4:26-27).

Father, bless us to love you with all of our heart, soul, mind, and strength. Also, bless us to love each other as we love ourselves. “And one of the scribes came, and having heard them reasoning together, and perceiving that he had answered them well, asked him, Which is the first commandment of all? 29 And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord: 30 And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.
31 And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these (Mark 12:28-31)

We ask that you draw every man, woman, boy and girl to thyself, Jesus, so we can live with You forever. Father, draw them to Jesus. “And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me” (John 12:32). “No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day” (John 6:44).

We pray for the peace of Jerusalem, that all jews be saved and baptized in your Holy Spirit and with fire, and for America and all other nations to be saved and baptized in your Holy Spirit and with fire, please send worldwide revival, for we ask all of the above in Jesus’ Name, Amen!

Also,
Dear God, help us to fulfill our purposes for which we were created. “For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them” (Ephesians 2:10), let there be unity in the Body of Christ, and please draw our prodigals home, in Jesus’ Name, we pray, Amen!

Please read:
2 Thessalonians 1
1Paul, Silas [1] and Timothy, To the church of the Thessalonians in God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ:
Grace and peace to you from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.3We ought always to thank God for you, brothers, and rightly so, because your faith is growing more and more, and the love every one of you has for each other is increasing.4Therefore, among God’s churches we boast about your perseverance and faith in all the persecutions and trials you are enduring.5All this is evidence that God’s judgment is right, and as a result you will be counted worthy of the kingdom of God, for which you are suffering.6God is just: He will pay back trouble to those who trouble you7and give relief to you who are troubled, and to us as well. This will happen when the Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven in blazing fire with his powerful angels.8He will punish those who do not know God and do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus.9They will be punished with everlasting destruction and shut out from the presence of the Lord and from the majesty of his power10on the day he comes to be glorified in his holy people and to be marveled at among all those who have believed. This includes you, because you believed our testimony to you.11With this in mind, we constantly pray for you, that our God may count you worthy of his calling, and that by his power he may fulfill every good purpose of yours and every act prompted by your faith.12We pray this so that the name of our Lord Jesus may be glorified in you, and you in him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.

Siubject: SANCTIFIED:

“For this is the will of God, your sanctification: that you abstain from sexual immorality” (1 Thessalonians 4:3). He commands Christians to “present your members as slaves to righteousness leading to sanctification” (Rom 6:19). Because believers have been set free from their slavery to sin, “the fruit you get leads to sanctification and its end, eternal life” (Romans 6:22).
In sanctification, both God and the Christian have specific responsibilities. Paul commands believers to own salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who works in you, both to will and to work for his good pleasure” (Philippians 2:12-13). God is the one who does the work of making us more like Christ, and we participate in that work by a life of continually turning away from sin and demonstrating our faith in Christ by obeying God’s commands. The Holy Spirit plays a key own salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who works in you, both to will and to work for his good pleasure” (Philippians 2:12-13). God is the one who does the work of making us more like Christ, and we participate in that work by a life of continually turning away from sin and demonstrating our faith in Christ by obeying God’s commands. The Holy Spirit plays a key role in this process; as we walk in the power of the Spirit we “will not gratify the desires of the flesh” (Galatians 5:16) – See more: https://seminary.grace.edu/what-is-sanctification/#:~:text=Hebrews%2010%3A10%20tells%20us,Jesus%20Christ%20once%20for%20all.%E2%80%9D

PRAYER

Father, sanctify us (set us apart) even more by your Word. Your Word is truth. Bless us to be ever growing, becoming more and more like Jesus.

Deliver us from the evil one. Thank you that no weapon used against us can succeed, for we are under Your constant protection (Issue 54:17; Psalm 91;).

Our desire is to please you and make known to the world, the Lord Jesus Christ. We realize that there is no other way to be saved but by accepting Jesus into our hearts. For as your Word says, “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me” (John 14:6). And, beloved, Jesus also says, “No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day” (John 6:44).

Father, let us so do as the Scriptures say, “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven” (Matthew 5:16).

Let it so be that when we are in the company of unbelievers that our love and light so shine among them that they are convicted by the Holy Spirit and give their hearts to Jesus.

PLEASE READ AND NOTE THE FOLLOWING:

“Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life” (John 8:12).

Because we belong to Christ, God says of us, “Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid” (Matthew 5:14).

Please pray at least 1 hour today and spend time reading the Bible.

God is always working to make us more like His Son (Jesus).

“For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren” (Romans 8:28).

Please read the following Scriptures reverently as you fast and pray. God anoints us for special services.

The following is not optional. Jesus didn’t say if you fast and pray. He said when you fast and pray. These things should become to the Christian as natural as breathing. These must become suddenlies and intermittent prayer throughout our lives.

Matthew 6

Prayer

5 “And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. 6 But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. 7 And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. 8 Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.

Fasting

16 “When you fast, do not look somber as the hypocrites do, for they disfigure their faces to show others they are fasting. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. 17 But when you fast, put oil on your head and wash your face, 18 so that it will not be obvious to others that you are fasting, but only to your Father, who is unseen; and your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.

PRAY

9 “This, then, is how you should pray:

“‘Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
10 your kingdom come,
your will be done,
    on earth as it is in heaven.
11 Give us today our daily bread.
12 And forgive us our debts,
    as we also have forgiven our debtors.
13 And lead us not into temptation,[a]
    but deliver us from the evil one.[b]’

Please read the following Scriptures reverently as you fast and pray. God anoints us for special services.

1 Timothy 2
20 In a large house there are articles not only of gold and silver, but also of wood and clay; some are for special purposes and some for common use. 21 Those who cleanse themselves from the latter will be instruments for special purposes, made holy, useful to the Master and prepared to do any good work.

22 Flee the evil desires of youth and pursue righteousness, faith, love and peace, along with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart. 23 Don’t have anything to do with foolish and stupid arguments, because you know they produce quarrels. 

24 And the Lord’s servant must not be quarrelsome but must be kind to everyone, able to teach, not resentful. 25 Opponents must be gently instructed, in the hope that God will grant them repentance leading them to a knowledge of the truth, 26 and that they will come to their senses and escape from the trap of the devil, who has taken them captive to do his will.

 

1 Samuel 16

Samuel said, “Send for him; we will not sit down [1] until he arrives.”12 So he sent and had him brought in. He was ruddy, with a fine appearance and handsome features. Then the LORD said, “Rise and anoint him; he is the one.”13So 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. Samuel then went to Ramah.14Now the Spirit of the LORD had departed from Saul, and an evil [2] spirit from the LORD tormented him.15Saul’s attendants said to him, “See, an evil spirit from God is tormenting you.16Let our lord command his servants here to search for someone who can play the harp. He will play when the evil spirit from God comes upon you, and you will feel better.”17So Saul said to his attendants, “Find someone who plays well and bring him to me.”18One of the servants answered, “I have seen a son of Jesse of Bethlehem who knows how to play the harp. He is a brave man and a warrior. He speaks well and is a fine-looking man. And the LORD is with him.”19Then Saul sent messengers to Jesse and said, “Send me your son David, who is with the sheep.”20So Jesse took a donkey loaded with bread, a skin of wine and a young goat and sent them with his son David to Saul.21David came to Saul and entered his service. Saul liked him very much, and David became one of his armor-bearers.22Then Saul sent word to Jesse, saying, “Allow David to remain in my service, for I am pleased with him.”23Whenever the spirit from God came upon Saul, David would take his harp and play. Then relief would come to Saul; he would feel better, and the evil spirit would leave him.

God specifically anoints us for special purposes. Each of us has a calling. And this is not limited to the four walls of what people call the church. Thank God for pastors, prophets, teachers, preachers, and evangelists who he has anointed to help and strengthen the Church for service. We are then to take God’s message into the public square. This includes the workplace, sports, music industry, schools, public transportation, airwaves, TV, radio, internet, and throughout the entire world.

Acts 1
8But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”

God called Abram (his name was later changed to Abraham) to leave his place of residence to go to an unknown country. The Bible says that he trusted God by faith. It was because of his faith that he was considered righteous. Not because of his works, you can’t earn righteousness, as false religions teach by following certain rules, but because he trusted  (we trust) God by faith.

“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith–and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God–9not by works, so that no one can boast” (Ephesians 2:8-9).

Father, we fast and pray, asking for more of your anointing, more of your favor, more of your wisdom and guidance that we may please you and fulfill your calling for our lives.

We ask these things in Jesus’ Name, Amen!

Reading these Scriptures and prayer will require some patience on your part. Remember, we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us (Philippians 4:13).

1 Corinthians 13
New International Version
13 If I speak in the tongues[a] of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. 3 If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast,[b] but do not have love, I gain nothing.

4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

8 Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. 9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part, 10 but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears. 11 When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me. 12 For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.

13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.”

Ephesians 2:10

New Living Translation
For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago

John 3
16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

 

1 John 3:16

New International Version

16 This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters.

Jesus said of Himself, “The Son of Man came to seek and save the lost” (Luke 19:10)

When God told Noah to build the ark (which was a type of Christ) so they could be saved ftom the coming flood, it didn’t take a couple of weeks, months, or years to complete. It took 120 years. Why so long, you ask? It was because God gave the people time to repent, and to turn to him, and be saved from the coming destruction.

Regarding Christ’s return snd the coming destruction upon the earth, he is not as slow as some say, but just like in Noah’s day, he is being so patient with humankind, giving people a chance to repent.

2 Peter 3:9
The Lord isn’t really being slow about his promise, as some people think. No, he is being patient for your sake. He does not want anyone to be destroyed, but wants everyone to repent.

Of the many good works that God has set up for us to do, I believe winning souls is the greatest of these.

Father, we fast and pray, asking for a mighty revival to sweep across the whole world, reaching all nations, kindreds, and tongues, so everyone will give their hearts to Jesus while there is still time.

Thank you so much for your great love, kindness, and patience.

We pray that you be honored and glorified. We give you the highest praise!

1 John 4:8,16, 18;
8 He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.

16 And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.

The Greatest Commandment

28 One of the
teachers of the law came and heard them debating. Noticing that Jesus had given them a good answer, he asked him, “Of all the commandments, which is the most important?”

29 “The most important one,” answered Jesus, “is this: ‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one.[e] 30 Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’[f] 31 The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’[g] There is no commandment greater than these.”

Love Fulfills the Law
Romans 13
8 Let no debt remain outstanding, except the continuing debt to love one another, for whoever loves others has fulfilled the law.

Galatians 5
14 For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself 15 If you bite and devour each other, watch out or you will be destroyed by each other.
16 So I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh. 17 For the flesh desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the flesh. They are in conflict with each other, so that you are not to do whatever[c] you want. 18 But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law.

19 The acts of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; 20 idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions 21 and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God.

22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. 24 Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. 25 Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit. 26 Let us not become conceited, provoking and envying each other.

Father, help us as we fast and pray so that we walk after the Spirit so we may not fulfill the desires of the flesh.

Help us to love one another as you have loved us.

Bless us to show your love every where we go, not only in word, but also in deed. Let us reflect the love of Christ in all our actions.

Father, you said you
would give us our heart’s desires. Please let our heart’s desires line up with your Word so that we may receive all our requests that we bring before you in prayer.

Please let all be saved and baptized in  your Holy Spirit, and with fire, Jesus baptize all with fire.

We pray for the peace of Jerusalem. Please keep Israel safe from all harm.

We pray that  you rescue America from the grips of Satan and demons and evil people who are trying to destroy her. Please bless America to truly be a Christian nation.

We pray for your Kingdom to come and for your will to be done here on earth as it is in heaven.

Please meet all of our needs among us as well.

Our service for God expands so far beyond the four walls of the building which so many people refer to as the Church. But that building is not the Church. It is the place that the Church (people of God meet to have Church services). As the Scriptures say “However, the Most High does not live in houses made by human hands. As the prophet says: Heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool. What kind of house will you build for me? says the Lord. Or where will my resting place be?” (Acts 7:48-49 NIV). In the Old Testament God had His people build a temple for the meeting place bur in the New Testament we see and experience that We are God’s living temples and that He dwells in us.

“Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?” (1 Corinthians 3:16).

A basketball player practices shooting hoops, a musician practices playing his or her instrument, a carpenter builds, a sinner practices sinning.

Thank God for pastors, prophets, teachers, preachers, and evangelists but the ministry doesn’t stop there. The Scriptures say, “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving”
(Colossians 3:23-24).

In our workplaces there should be none who exceed our passion for serving others in whatever capacity God has placed us in. Of course God will take us beyond whatever limits man has placed upon us.

Father, we fast and pray that we would all heed whatever calling you have placed on our lives. For we are not our own, “Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies” (1 Corinthians 6:19-20).

Thank you so much, Father, that we all have valuable roles in the Kingdom of God, wherever you may place us.

John 3 KJV
16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

Luke 19:10
New King James Version
“For the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost. “

John 10 NIV
“14 “I am the good shepherd; I know my sheep and my sheep know me— 15 just as the Father knows me and I know the Father—and I lay down my life for the sheep. 16 I have other sheep that are not of this sheep pen. I must bring them also. They too will listen to my voice, and there shall be one flock and one shepherd. 17 The reason my Father loves me is that I lay down my life—only to take it up again. 18 No one takes it from me, but I lay it down of my own accord. I have authority to lay it down and authority to take it up again. This command I received from my Father.”

2 Peter 3:9 AMP
The Lord does not delay [as though He were unable to act] and is not slow about His promise, as some count slowness, but is [extraordinarily] patient toward you, not wishing for any to perish but for all to come to repentance.

Mark 16 NKJV

“New King James Version

15 And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. 16 He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned.”

Acts 1:8 NIV
“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”

The previous Scriptures indicate God’s love for us and his desire for all to be saved. Further, he has called and equipped us to share the gospel throughout the world.

While God is all powerful he has chosen us as his vessels to lead others to Christ.

Ephesians 2:10 NLT

“For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.”

Father, we fast and pray today asking you to save all people here in America and around the world. Please empower not only pastors, prophets, teachers, preachers, and evangelists, but all of your people to win others to Christ while there is still time.

Please meet every need of the saints of God, bring complete healing to our family members, stop the evil plots of the devil and the pharmaceutical industry, the porn industry, and every other evil force in the world.

Please bring about an endtime revival that so far exceeds all previous revivals combined.

Dear God, may your Kingdom come, may your will be done on earth as it is in heaven (in heaven there is no evil, no sickness, poverty, or any other suffering or wickedness). Thank you so much! These things we ask in the Precious Name of Jesus, Amen!

Jehovah Nissi – The Lord Our Victory

The Amalekites Defeated; Exodus 17

8 The Amalekites came and attacked the Israelites at Rephidim. 9 Moses said to Joshua, “Choose some of our men and go out to fight the Amalekites. Tomorrow I will stand on top of the hill with the staff of God in my hands.”

10 So Joshua fought the Amalekites as Moses had ordered, and Moses, Aaron and Hur went to the top of the hill. 11 As long as Moses held up his hands, the Israelites were winning, but whenever he lowered his hands, the Amalekites were winning. 12 When Moses’ hands grew tired, they took a stone and put it under him and he sat on it. Aaron and Hur held his hands up—one on one side, one on the other—so that his hands remained steady till sunset. 13 So Joshua overcame the Amalekite army with the sword.

14 Then the Lord said to Moses, “Write this on a scroll as something to be remembered and make sure that Joshua hears it, because I will completely blot out the name of Amalek from under heaven.”

15 Moses built an altar and called it The Lord is my Banner.”
https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Exodus%2017&version=NIV#:~:text=Passage,is%20my%20Banner.

“What does the Lord is my banner mean Exodus 17 15?

Symbol of Victory

Symbol of Victory – the banner, particularly in this case of Exodus 17, was a symbol of victory and a reminder of how they won – it was the Lord who won the battle. It was the Lord whose banner they followed into battle and the Lord is the one who claims the victory. He leads and protects; we know the victory is won” (Internet).

Jehovah-Nissi

“That is exactly what we see in Exodus 17 with Jehovah-Nissi, God our Victory. Exodus 17 is where we read this name for the first time. The Israelites complained to Moses, “Give us water to drink” (Internet).

WE MUST NEVER STOP PRAYING:

Jesus already paid the price for our victory. So, no matter what we are facing, no matter what it looks like, the victory is ours in Christ.

Father, we fast and that you help us as we face the battles before us. We claim victory over every one them, in Jesus’ Name!

The departures of loved ones, moving into new neighborhoods, starting all new ventures, health concerns, financial needs, overcomig worry, desiring more peace of mind, making big decisions, passing educational tests, being delivered from the spirit of fear (this is one the devil uses often), gaining victory over sin, healing for family relationships … and whatever you need from the Lord.

Romans 1
God’s Wrath Against Sinful Humanity

18 The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness, 
19 since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. 20 For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.
https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Romans%201&version=NIV

Revelation 9
20 The rest of mankind who were not killed by these plagues still did not repent of the work of their hands; they did not stop worshiping demons, and idols of gold, silver, bronze, stone and wood—idols that cannot see or hear or walk. 21 Nor did they repent of their murders, their magic arts, their sexual immorality or their thefts.

In the Book of Revelation even after God’s wrath was revealed from heaven people still refused to repent of their sins and turn to God.

Father, as we see things regarding the endtimes coming into fruition more and more everyday please give us wisdom as we operate under the anointing of the Holy Spirit. Bless us with more and more Godly wisdom that we may be able to carry out your plans  (winning souls, advancing your Kingdom) not allowing ourselves to be deceived by the devil and those (demons and people) under his control.

Father, bless us to win the lost, snatching them from the very flames of hell.

Your Word says that the early Christians “turned the world upside down” (Acts 17:6). https://www.blueletterbible.org/Comm/spurgeon_charles/sermons/0193.cfm

Please bless us to do even more to bring glory to you!

 

You will know them by their fruits: (See Matthew 17:15:20)

God’s people bring peace and joy. Those under Satan’s control bring division.

In Romans (NIV) 16:17-18 Paul warns God’s faithful people, “I urge you, brothers and sisters, to watch out for those who cause divisions and put obstacles in your way that are contrary to the teaching you have learned. Keep away from them. 
18 For such people are not serving our Lord Christ, but their own appetites. By smooth talk and flattery they deceive the minds of naive people.”

The Amplified says it this way, “I urge you, brothers and sisters, to keep your eyes on those who cause dissensions and create obstacles 
or introduce temptations [for others] to commit sin, [acting in ways] contrary to the doctrine which you have learned. Turn away from them. 18 For such people do not serve our Lord Christ, but their own appetites and base desires. By smooth and flattering speech they deceive the hearts of the unsuspecting [the innocent and the naive].”

What does it mean to be wise as serpents and harmless as doves (Matthew 10:16)?

Good for thought:
Revelation 21:8
Amplified Bible

8 But as for the cowards and unbelieving and abominable [who are devoid of character and personal integrity and practice or tolerate immorality], and murderers, and sorcerers [with intoxicating drugs], and idolaters 
and occultists [who practice and teach false religions], and all the liars [who knowingly deceive and twist truth], their part will be in the lake that blazes with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.”

Revelation 21:8 Expanded Bible

8 But cowards, those ·who refuse to believe [without faith], who do ·evil [vile; detestable] things, who kill, who sin sexually, who do ·evil magic [sorcery], who worship idols, and who tell lies—all these will have ·a place [L their part] in the lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death [20:6].”

Father, we fast and pray so we may know you better and the power you possess so we may give you the honor and glory that you deserve.

LINDSEY’S TESTIMONY

“I think one of the biggest things that helped me overcome this huge trial in my life was the fact that finally I realized that there was somebody who had felt exactly how I was feeling. And because of [Jesus], I knew I could have the courage to trust. To trust God, to trust Christ to get me through a time when I felt that I was worthless.”

My fellow believers, you should know that you are so precious to God, and He loves you beyond measure.

The Scriptures, unless otherwise indicated, are from the King James Version.

“Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time”
(1 Peter 5:6).

Whatever we may be facing, whether things brought on by our own actions or attacks by the devil, we can approach God with full confidence that, “God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble” (Psalm 46:1) and you can trust him when he says, “I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee” (Hebrews 13:5).

Father, thank you for your grace, without which no one could stand.

Thank you for creating us and blessing us to be alive today.

We realize that everything good in our lives is because of you (James 1:17).

Our minds, hearts, and bodies functioning properly is because of you. “For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. 14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well” (Psalm 139:13-14 NIV).

Father, please bless us to represent you well. God says of us that “14 Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.

15 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.  Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven” ( Matthew 5:14-16).

Forgive us for all of our sins as we forgive others for their sins. “For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: 15 But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your sins. (Matthew 6:14-15).

In his effort to stop God’s plan of the redemption (salvation) of mankind the devil tried to deceive the Creator himself. And you need to know that he is also out to get you. As Christians, we have such great joy and desire nothing more than to bring as many people as we can to heaven, but our enemy, the devil  “Is filled with fury, because he knows that his time is short”
(Revelation 12:12), and he desires to bring as many as he can to hell.  He, “Was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies” (John 8:44). But “God is love” (1 John 4:8), and he is, “Not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance” (1 Peter 3:9), and to make it into heaven.

THE DEVIL TRIED TO INTERUPT AND DESTROY GOD’S PLAN TO RESCUE US FROM HELL

Satan did all that he could to stop Jesus from fulfilling God’s plan of salvation for everyone, by tempting him to sin,  but he failed. Jesus prevailed!

see below:

“Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. 2 After fasting forty days and forty nights, he was hungry. 3 The tempter came to him and said, “If you are the Son of God, tell these stones to become bread.” 4 Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of  God (Matthew 4:1-4).

“Then the devil took him to the holy city and had him stand on the highest point of the temple. 6 “If you are the Son of God,” he said, “throw yourself down. For it is written: “‘He will command his angels concerning you, and they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone. 7 Jesus answered him, “It is also written: ‘Do not put the Lord your God to the test.
(Matthew 4:6-7).

In his third effort to destroy God’s plan, “The devil took him to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their splendor. 9 “All this I will give you,” he said, “if you will bow down and worship me.”
10 Jesus said to him, “Away from me, Satan! For it is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only” (Matthew 4:8-10).

Beloved, regarding our complete victory over the devil God’s Word says, “And they overcame and conquered him because of the blood of the Lamb and because of the word of their testimony, for they did not love their life and renounce their faith even when faced with death” (Revelation 12:11 AMP).

Jesus said, “When anyone hears the message about the kingdom and does not understand it, the evil one comes and snatches away what was sown in their heart”
(Matthew 13:19 NIV). You see, Satan realizes that once a person gets filled with the Word of God, chains (hatred, defeat, drug additions, stealing, lying, etc.) are broken.

When the devil attacked Jesus, our Lord didn’t say, ‘Put up your dukes, let’s get it on dog.’ No, he said that, ‘It is written.”

The Word of God is
“Alive and active” (Hebrews 4:12). His Word is a ‘cure all’ for everything. You see, He stands behind His Word, he backs it up by His Name, by His very presence (See Psalm 138:2; Jeremiah1:12).

LET’S PRAY:
Heaven Father, we fast and pray for so many more people to hear your gospel message about Jesus and accept him into their hearts so they will be saved and make it into heaven.

We ask that you deliver our brothers and sisters who are suffering persecution all over the world.

Help us to love and pray for our enemies.

Heal your Church. Help us to truly love one another. Remove every form of evil out from the midst of us.

We ask you to heal Christian marriages and families (Ephesians 5:21-33; 6:1-4).

We ask for more of a move of the Holy Spirit so that revival continues to expand in the Church and that it infects affects all of society, bringing more and more people into the Kingdom.

For those who are reading this, I pray that God will reveal himself to you in such a way that amazes you with his love and power.

Father, we also ask for your Kingdom to be established on earth as it is in heaven!

We thank you and praise you in the Mighty Name of Jesus! Amen!

EMPHASIS:
The main part of our (a Christian’s) mission is to fill the Father’s House with His Children. God does not want anyone to be lost.
Hell was not meant for people. It was “prepared for the devil and his angels” (Matthew 25:41).

Jesus Sends Out the Seventy-Two

“After this the Lord appointed seventy-two others and sent them two by two ahead of him to every town and place where he was about to go. 2 He told them, “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field. 3 Go! I am sending you out like lambs among wolves. 4 Do not take a purse or bag or sandals; and do not greet anyone on the road. 5 “When you enter a house, first say, ‘Peace to this house.’ 6 If someone who promotes peace is there, your peace will rest on them; if not, it will return to you. 7 Stay there, eating and drinking whatever they give you, for the worker deserves his wages. Do not move around from house to house.
8 “When you enter a town and are welcomed, eat what is offered to you. 9 Heal the sick who are there and tell them, ‘The kingdom of God has come near to you” (Luke 10:1-9 NIV) …

17 The seventy-two returned with joy and said, “Lord, even the demons submit to us in your name.”

… “The seventy-two returned with joy and said, “Lord, even the demons submit to us in your name.”
18 He replied, “I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven. 19 I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you. 
20 However, do not rejoice that the spirits submit to you, but rejoice that your names are written in heaven ” (Luke 10:17-20).

Though some, unfortunately to their own peril, have refused and doubted the Lord, Jesus Christ, the fact that He is God, and of His victorious resurrection, and future return, people need to understand that, “With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day. 9 The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance. 10 But the day of the Lord will come like a thief. The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything done in it will be laid bare. 11 Since
everything will be destroyed in this way, what kind of people ought you to be? You ought to live holy and godly lives 12 as you look forward to the day of God and speed its coming. That day will bring about the destruction of the heavens by fire, and the elements will melt in the heat. 13 But in keeping with his promise we are looking forward to a new heaven and a new earth, where righteousness dwells” (Luke 10:8-13).

Father, we fast and pray for the lost (sinners) to be won to Jesus. Please raise up more witnesses (saints, people of God) who are willing and obedient to share the gospel (message of Christ) with the nations and win them to Jesus while there is still time.

Also, please heal the ‘Body of Christ (Your Church).’

Father, may your Kingdom come, may your will be done on earth as it is in Heaven.

Father, we thank you, and praise you, in the Mighty, Holy, Awesome, Unmatchable, and Perfect Name of Jesus, Amen!

War with the Amalekites

8 The Amalekites came and attacked the Israelites at Rephidim. 9 Moses said to Joshua, “Pick out some men to go and fight the Amalekites tomorrow. I will stand on top of the hill holding the stick that God told me to carry.” 10 Joshua did as Moses commanded him and went out to fight the Amalekites, while Moses, Aaron, and Hur went up to the top of the hill. 11 As long as Moses held up his arms, the Israelites won, but when he put his arms down, the Amalekites started winning. 12 When Moses’ arms grew tired, Aaron and Hur brought a stone for him to sit on, while they stood beside him and held up his arms, holding them steady until the sun went down. 13 In this way Joshua totally defeated the Amalekites.

14 Then the Lord said to Moses, “Write an account of this victory, so that it will be remembered. Tell Joshua that I will completely destroy the Amalekites.” 15 Moses built an altar and named it “The Lord is my Banner.” 16 He said, “Hold high the banner of the Lord![b] The Lord will continue to fight against the Amalekites forever!”

The world is at odds with God. They are entrapped by the devil. They are spiritually blind. They stumble even in daylight. They’re fighting against God. They have joined in with Satan’s rebellion against God of which they have no chance of winning.

Their systems are flawed. They spend (and steal) so much to deal with finding cures for diseases, dealing with crime, global warming (which is really cyclical), when if they would only turn to – The True and Living God – He would take delight in them and bring healing and restoration and provide for all of our needs.

While we know that our victory is tied up in Christ, we understand that you have ordained it that people should carry out your will on earth. So we are asking that you elect men and women into offices of leadership who will make Godly decisions and carry out your desires on earth.

We pray for those who are grieving over the loss of loved ones and for all reasons to be comforted and healed by your love.

We thank you that fires of revival are burning in areas around the world. Please fan these flames and let them burn all over the world! We want to see Jesus glorified. 

Please save America from those who are out to destroy her, both from within and without. People don’t understand that America became great, not because of man’s genius but because they put Jesus (God) first in the beginning. He is the only One who keeps us safe.

WE ACCEPT NOTHING LESS THAN VICTORY!
WHENEVER YOU READ THE WORD OF GOD IT MUST BE MIXED WITH FAITH OR YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE HIS BEST FOR YOU.

Please pray and learn to pray according to the Lord’s model prayer below.

PRAY OUT LOUD:

“Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.

10 Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

11 Give us this day our daily bread.

12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen” (Matthew 6:9-13).

Here are 20 meaningful benefits of prayer, plus a little more.
1. Prayer gives you peace of heart and mind.

2. Assurance that you are doing all you can.

3. A sense of confidence that whatever you’re facing is going to turn out for the best.

4. Victory.

5. Doing God’s will.

6. This means that you are giving God first place in your life and depending on him to handle whatever it is that you are facing.

7. Establishes and builds on your relationship with God.

8. Defeats fear.

9. Gives you clarity of mind and purpose.

10. Reinforces barriers (walls) of protection (alerts God and His ministering angels,
to aid you).

Daniel Chapter 10;
Luke 18:1-8;
1 Thessalonians 5:17;
Ephesians 6:18;
Acts 12:1-19;

11. Strengthens your faith.

12. Exercises your love for others.

13. Strengthens your character.

14. Adds to your overall strength (true prayer requires a concerted effort of a person’s spirit, soul, i.e., mind, will, and emotions, and body (physical strength). This is why in so many houses of worship that prayer services are the least attended events. Is it any wonder that God’s Word tells us to “Pray without ceasing” (1 Thessalonians 5:17).

15. Shapes the world. God has purposely made us co-workers with him. He says, “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land” (2 Chronicles 7:14).

We but when we see him we shall be just like him

16. Helps us to see from God’s perspective. It helps us to understand why things are as they are.

17. Helps us to distinguish good from evil

18. Establishes a ‘No fly zone.’ Neither the devil nor demons can dwell in such atmospheres. It provides a ‘Welcome’ sign for God’s angels and ‘No Admittance’ sign for demonic beings (Satan being the chief of demons).

19. Keeps us sensitive to God (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit) and hearing his voice.

20. Prayer exercises and expands our faith.

Of course, there is so much more.

Father, we fast and pray for all to hear the gospel, the good news about Jesus and how he died for them, rose again, and accept/receive him into their hearts so they will be saved.

Our number one priority is to get as many people who are willing (God will not force anyone against their will) to be saved/born again so they can live with him fòrever in the new heaven and earth. God will wipe away all pain and suffering.

“For this is how God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life” (John 3:16 NLT).

“For the Son of Man came to seek and save those who are lost” (Luke 19:10).

Please, I urge you to get ready, be ready, and stay ready for Jesus’ Return, to take us with Him.

A psalm of David.

“Who may worship in your sanctuary, Lord?
    Who may enter your presence on your holy hill?
2 Those who lead blameless lives and do what is right,
    speaking the truth from sincere hearts.
3 Those who refuse to gossip
    or harm their neighbors
    or speak evil of their friends.
4 Those who despise flagrant sinners,
    and honor the faithful followers of the Lord,

“For God knew his people in advance, and he chose them to become like his Son, so that his Son would be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters” (Romans 8:29 NLT).

Dear God, thank you that we were chosen in advance by you to be yours. We are so grateful that we know, and serve the True and Living God.

Faith and Endurance

“Dear brothers and sisters, when troubles of any kind come your way, consider it an opportunity for great joy. 3 For you know that when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow. 4 So let it grow, for when your endurance is fully developed, you will be perfect and complete, needing nothing. 5 If you need wisdom, ask our generous God, and he will give it to you. He will not rebuke you for asking. 6 But when you ask him, be sure that your faith is in God alone. Do not waver, for a person with divided loyalty is as unsettled as a wave of the sea that is blown and tossed by the wind. 7 Such people should not expect to receive anything from the Lord. 8 Their loyalty is divided between God and the world, and they are unstable in everything they do” (James 1:1-8 NLT).

“No one can serve two masters. For you will hate one and love the other; you will be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and be enslaved to money.
25 “That is why I tell you not to worry about everyday life—whether you have enough food and drink, or enough clothes to wear. Isn’t life more than food, and your body more than clothing? 26 Look at the birds. They don’t plant or harvest or store food in barns, for your heavenly Father feeds them. And aren’t you far more valuable to him than they are? 27 Can all your worries add a single moment to your life? 28 “And why worry about your clothing? Look at the lilies of the field and how they grow. They don’t work or make their clothing, 29 yet Solomon in all his glory was not dressed as beautifully as they are. 30 And if God cares so wonderfully for wildflowers that are here today and thrown into the fire tomorrow, he will certainly care for you. Why do you have so little faith?
31 “So don’t worry about these things, saying, ‘What will we eat? What will we drink? What will we wear?’ 32 These things dominate the thoughts of unbelievers, but your heavenly Father already knows all your needs. 33 Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need. 34 “So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today”
(Matthew 6:24-34).

“You must not have any other god but me” (Exodus 20:3). Please note that all other gods are false.

Father, we thank you that we can rejoice in the face of trials realizing that we have a chance for our endurance (perseverance, patience) to grow, equipping us to serve you even better. We don’t love, serve, chase after, or worship money. We don’t worry about tomorrow, but we, “Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously” and all our needs are provided for in Christ.

Father, please bless everyone to be saved and baptized in your Holy Spirit and with fire.  Jesus baptize all with fire. Bless people to see the truths found in your Word and apply them in their lives so they will be blessed beyond measure. 

Also, please pray according to what God reveals to you in His Word.

“The kind of fast I want is that you stop oppressing those who work for you and treat them fairly and give them what they earn. 7 I want you to share your food with the hungry and bring right into your own homes those who are helpless, poor, and destitute. Clothe those who are cold, and don’t hide from relatives who need your help.

8 If you do these things, God will shed his own glorious light upon you. He will heal you; your godliness will lead you forward, goodness will be a shield before you, and the glory of the Lord will protect you from behind. 9 Then, when you call, the Lord will answer. “Yes, I am here,” he will quickly reply. All you need to do is to stop oppressing the weak and stop making false accusations and spreading vicious rumors! 10 Feed the hungry! Help those in trouble! Then your light will shine out from the darkness, and the darkness around you shall be as bright as day. 11 And the Lord will guide you continually, and satisfy you with all good things, and keep you healthy too; and you will be like a well-watered garden, like an ever-flowing spring. 12 Your sons will rebuild the long-deserted ruins of your cities, and you will be known as “The People Who Rebuild Their Walls and Cities.” 13 If you keep the Sabbath holy, not having your own fun and business on that day, but enjoying the Sabbath, speaking of it with delight as the Lord’s holy day, and honoring the Lord in what you do, not following your own desires and pleasure nor talking idly— 14 then the Lord will be your delight, and I will see to it that you ride high and get your full share of the blessings I promised to Jacob, your father. The Lord has spoken”
(Isaiah 58:6-14).

Father, please help us to fulfill your desires for fasting. Thank you very much! It is in Jesus’ Name that we pray. Amen.

Regarding the last days, Jesus said, “Watch out that no one deceives you.  For many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am the Messiah,’ and will deceive many.  You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places.  All these are the beginning of birth pains. “Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death, and you will be hated by all nations because of me. At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come” (Matthew 6:4-14 NIV).

Well, when you look around you see this massive onslaught by the media to spread lies and indoctrinate people into accepting and following ungodly beliefs and practices. They are trying to wipe out every vestige of Christianity in America and around the world. Satan doesn’t mind all the other religions flourishing because they are not a threat to his kingdom. In fact he is behind every false way since he of whom Jesus says, “Has always hated the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, it is consistent with his character; for he is a liar and the father of lies” (John 8:44 NLT).

What we see happening this very day is what the Bible warned us of, “Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons” (1 Timothy 4:1 NKJV).

The reason – the devil and all who are under his control are attacking Christianity and the Bible, including the media en masse, so much of the educational establishment from preschool and kindergarten on up to colleges and universities (And have you been to the public library lately?) –  is that Satan knows the only way for his evil plot (evil plan) to succeed is to get people to turn away from the only True and Living God.

The Church actually started public education with the Holy Bible as the central theme.

Beloved, our Christian brothers snd sisters were fed to the lions in Rome because they refused to renounce their faith in Jesus. Today so many are being persecuted, martyred around the world for their faith in Christ. Even here at home in America they are doing all they can to do away with God and to silence Christians in the public square.

Beloved, let us pray.

Father, we pray for our brothers and sisters who are being persecuted for their faith in Jesus. Please bless them to forgive, love, and pray for their persecutors to give their hearts to Jesus while there is still time.

Father, deliver them from their persecutors. Help them find safe havens.

Please keep your people safe from all harm.

Father, please intervene here in America and bless us to truly be a Christian nation through and through. Bless her to return to her roots. The whole idea of America started with Christian thought (the Bible). That’s why we have established freedoms which are a light for all other nations.

Father, stop those in government who are trying to wipe away the freedom to worship you and share the truth of your Word, and the love of Christ with others.

Father, please bless your Church to be in the unity of the Spirit that we may be as one marching together under the anointing and power of the Holy Spirit as we proclaim the gospel (your Word) to those who live in darkness (blinded by the devil, under the power of the devil  and demons).

Your Word says, “And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come” (Matthew 24:14).

We pray that your Word will go forth to reach the whole world with the message of Jesus so all will have the opportunity to be saved while there is still time. Please bless everyone to be saved and baptized in your Holy Spirit, and with fire.

Thank you and praise you, in Jesus’ Mighty Name, Amen!

Also, please pray as the Spirit leads you.

Thank you for praying. God is pleased when we obey Him by praying.

Father, we fast and pray for the Body of Christ to dedicate ourselves more fully to prayer, more fully to studying and obeying your Word, to sharing the gospel message and leading people into a personal relationship with Jesus (saving souls). Please bless us to repent of any sin(s) in our lives and to be ready at any time Jesus’ return which we realize can happen at any moment. Lord, bless us to devote ourselves to prayer.

Parable of Ten Virgins

“Then the kingdom of heaven will be like ten virgins, who took their lamps and went to meet the bridegroom. 2 Five of them were foolish 
[thoughtless, silly, and careless], and five were wise  [far-sighted, practical, and sensible]. 3 For when the foolish took their lamps, they did not take any [extra] oil with them, 4 but the wise took flasks of oil along with their lamps. 5 Now while the bridegroom was delayed, they all began to nod off, and they fell asleep. 6 But at midnight there was a shout, ‘Look! The bridegroom [is coming]! Go out to meet him.’ 7 Then all those virgins got up and put their own lamps in order [trimmed the wicks and added oil and lit them]. 8 But the foolish virgins said to the wise, ‘Give us some of your oil, because our lamps are going out.’ 9 But the wise replied, ‘No, otherwise there will not be enough for us and for you, too; go instead to the dealers and buy oil for yourselves.’ 10 But while they were going away to buy oil, the bridegroom came, and those who were ready went in with him to the wedding feast; and the door was shut and locked. 11 Later the others also came, and said, ‘Lord, Lord, open [the door] for us.’ 12 But He replied, ‘I assure you and most solemnly say to you, I do not know you [we have no relationship].’ 
13 Therefore, be on the alert [be prepared and ready], for you do not know the day nor the hour [when the Son of Man will come]” (Matthew 25:1-13 AMP).

” … broader message, the wise (or righteous) virgins were those who led virtuous lives and were therefore prepared to enter heaven. The foolish virgins were those unrighteous women who were unprepared for the coming of the bridegroom (Christ) and consequently had the gates of heaven closed to them.”

“What does the oil in the lamp symbolize?

The Lord commanded the children of Israel anciently to use “pure oil olive beaten for the light, to cause the lamps to burn continually” (Leviticus 24:2). According to The Guide to the Scriptures, olive oil is a symbol of purity and of the presence and influence of the Holy Ghost.” Internet

“In the parable, the oil in the wise virgins’ lamps represents their 

righteous living and obedience. We each fill our own lamp, which represents our own life, with our obedience and righteousness. Heavenly Father’s blessings to us for our righteous actions
cannot be given.” Internet

Verse of the Day:
“May your Kingdom come soon. May your will be done on earth, as it is in heaven.”

–Matthew 6:10

Father, we fast and pray for your kingdom to come and for your will to be done on earth as it is in heaven. While we realize that we still live on earth and regarding problems/challenges that we experience which Jesus talked about in John 16 he said, “I’ve told you all this so that trusting me, you will be unshakable and assured, deeply at peace. In this godless world you will continue to experience difficulties. But take heart! I’ve conquered the world.”

Dear God, yet we who are your people are overcomers and, “More than conquerors (Romans 8:37).

The devil’s plan is, “Only to steal and kill and destroy” (John 10:10a). Wherever you see drugs, murder, depression, sexual identity crisis and all sorts of evil you know that these evils are perpetuated by the devil and demons (not to overlook selfishness and the evil that lurks in the hearts of people who reject christ and live only to please themselves). But even in the midst of darkness the good news is that God, Jesus came, “That they (we) may have life, and have it to the full” (John 10:10b).

Jesus, your will is that
we have joy and peace even when we face trials of every kind. We have victory in you. So, with all that is going on right now in 2023, price of gas, food, clothing, etc., we have great✌️peace and victory and joy in Christ, praise God!

When we pray, “Your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven,” we realize that in heaven there is no poverty, no sickness, no pain or suffering there, that only good things are there.

Don’t worry, Jesus defeated the devil and every demon, all sickness, trauma, and pain, every force against us, even pain and defeats brought on us by ourselves.

Acts 10:38
38 How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.

1 John 3:8 Amplified
The one who practices sin [separating himself from God, and offending Him by acts of disobedience, indifference, or rebellion] is of the devil [and takes his inner character and moral values from him, not God]; for the devil has sinned and violated God’s law from the beginning. The Son of God appeared for this purpose, to destroy the works of the devil.

John 8:12 NIV
When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”

Jesus says to us who have accepted Him (the true light into our hearts) “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven” (Matthew 5:14-16 NIV).

Of course, there is so much more but in the interest of time and space I will end this segment here.

PRAY for the Church, the true body of Christ to be healed, to be in unity, and to be emboldened by the Holy Spirit as we venture further into these last days before Jesus returns. For Jesus is coming back for a powerful (overcoming) Church.

Pray for America to truly be a Christian nation who is closely joined with Israel and God’s Holy City of Jerusalem.

Pray for all to be saved and baptized in the Holy Spirit and with fire all around the world.

Pray for Godly men and women to run for offices and be voted into leadership positions such as presidents, governors, mayors, and so on and so on, so that we can have Godly values restored here in America and around the world.

Pray for Christian teachers, professors, and administrators to be placed back into school systems, preschool, elementary, middle school, high school, colleges, and universities, in America and around the world so our young people and late bloomers can be taught from a Godly perspective. So that our places of education can become safe zones again free of evil Godless socialist and communist ideas that perpetuate hatred, murder, sexual deviation, disrepect of self and others, etc.

Pray for an advancement in evangelism in America and around the world. This will give everyone an opportunity to either accept or reject Jesus. Once this is accomplished the end of the world, as we know it, will come, and Jesus will return to receive God’s people unto himself (a new heaven,  and a new earth – marvelous beyond description). “And this gospel of the kingdom will be proclaimed throughout the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come” (Matthew 24:14, ESV).

Pray for our enemies and their families to give their hearts to Jesus.

Pray for the homeless, the orphans and widows to know Jesus and be well taken care of.

While the world is in darkness we must realize that Jesus really is
The Reason for the Season

It is so important to know Jesus (God Eternal) was not created. He is from everlasting ages past (See Micah 5:2). He came into this world and was conceived in Mary by the Holy Spirit (this is one of many prophecies filfilled by Jesus- see Isaiah 7:14).

2 Corinthians 6:2 

2 For God says, “At just the right time, I heard you. On the day of salvation, I helped you.” Indeed, the “right time” is now. Today is the day of salvation.

Galatians 4:4

New Living Translation
But when the right time came, God sent his Son, born of a woman, subject to the law.

Romans 5:6
When we were utterly helpless, Christ came at just the right time and died for us sinners.

The Birth of Christ
https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Luke%202&version=NLT

Let us rejoice at the coming of Christ, not just for a season, but forever.

Dear God, we thank you for loving people (everyone) so much that you sent your son to rescue us from hell (eternal damnation) which was not meant for people (See Matthew 25:41).

Dear Jesus, we thank you that you knew that we could only be saved by your sacrifice and were so overjoyed in making this a reality (see Hebrews 12:2) that you were willing to shed your own blood for us even when it meant being separated from the Father (because our sin was upon you) for period of time which you had never experienced before.

Father, please let the story of your sending and giving Jesus because of your great love for mankind be told to everyone so they will give their hearts to Jesus while there there is still time. We fast and pray for this to become a reality. And we thank you and praise you for it, in Jesus’ Mighty Name, Amen!

GOD’S PROMISED PROTECTION

Father, we fast and pray as we meditate on these Scriptures. Please bless us, for we are willing and obedient to your Word and desire to live our lives to please you, to reach the lost with the gospel (the message of Jesus, the Christ, the Son of the Living God) so they can be saved, escape hell, and live with us in heaven forever (eternity).

As you read these Scriptures just pray according to what God reveals to you.

For example, fear is not just a feeling although I do understand when people say that there is such a thing as ‘a healthy type of fear’ such as, “If you see a poisonous snake in your back yard, and your fear prompts you to run back into the house and close the door,” one can also get into mental health issues but we must also understand the spiritual realm. The Bible indicates that fear is a spirit. It is an evil spirit that we can take authority over and be victorious over every time one shows up in our lives.

“For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline (2 Timothy 1:7 New Living Translation Version – self discipline is also translated “a sound mind”).

“Do not fear, for those who are with us are more than those who are with them.” (2 Kings 6:16 New King James Version).

“No weapon forged against you will prevail, and you will refute (prove a statement or theory to be wrong or false; disprove) every tongue that accuses you. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and this is their vindication from me, declares the Lord”
(Isaiah 54:17
(New International Version MIT).

“When evil men advance against me to devour my flesh, when my enemies and my foes attack me, they will stumble and fall” Psalm 27:2 NIV MIT

In 2 Chronicles Chapter 20 God’s people were under attack so they sought his help through fasting and prayer. Instead of telling them to get their worldly weapons ready for the battle God told them to worship him. When they obeyed him God actually fought and won the battle it for them.
God spoke to through the prophet saying, “Listen, King Jehoshaphat and all who live in Judah and Jerusalem! This is what the LORD says to you: “Do not be afraid or discouraged because of this vast army. For the battle is not yours, but God’s” (2 Chronicles 20:15).

21After consulting the people, Jehoshaphat appointed men to sing to the LORD and to praise him for the splendor of his [4] holiness as they went out at the head of the army, saying: “Give thanks to the LORD, for his love endures forever.”
2 Chronicles 20:21

We can place our full trust in the Lord, just like King David, knowing that he will rescue us pertaining to whatever our need is.
“But I trust in your unfailing love. I will rejoice because you have rescued me”
(Psalm 13:5 New Living Translation).

“When evil men advance against me to devour my flesh, when my enemies and my foes attack me, they will stumble and fall”
(Psalm 27:2 NIV MIT).

“The LORD will grant that the enemies who rise up against you will be defeated before you. They will come at you from one direction but flee from you in seven. The LORD will send a blessing on your barns and on everything you put your hand to. The LORD your God will bless you in the land he is giving you” (Deuteronomy 28:7 NIV MIT).

Father, let us hold tightly to the truth of your Word. For your Word is a lamp for our feet and a light  keeping us (helping us
to) stay on the right path (See Psalm 119:105) and safe from our enemies (the devil, demons, and evil people under Satan’s control, including drug pushers, lovers of money, devilish teachings, ie., philosophies of all kinds that exalt themselves against the Word of God, and every other evil in this dark and depraved world including our own selfish desires (the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes,  and the pride of life.

1 John 2:16 
New International Version
For everything in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—comes not from the Father but from the world.

New Living Translation
For the world offers only a craving for physical pleasure, a craving for everything we see, and pride in our achievements and possessions. These are not from the Father, but are from this world.

Make no mistake about it, we must “Stay alert! Watch out for your great enemy, the devil. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour. 9Stand firm against him, and be strong in your faith. Remember that your family of believers all over the world is going through the same kind of suffering (testings, attacks against our belief that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the Living God, who came in the flesh, died and rose again – victorious over the devil, death, hell and the grave, and everything else – emphasis mine) you are” (1 Peter 5:8-9).

If you stand for Jesus (are a true believer) you should know with certainty that while life is meant to be enjoyed it is no game. When you become a Born Again Christian you have become a target in this fallen (evil) world. Evil people (under the power of the devil and demons) lay in wait to try to destroy us, our reputation, etc., indeed our very lives,
but don’t worry because God takes care of those who are His. He will give you victory in evey situation. “The wicked watcheth the righteous, and seeketh to slay him.
33 The Lord will not leave him in his hand, nor condemn him when he is judged.
34 Wait on the Lord, and keep his way, and he shall exalt thee to inherit the land: when the wicked are cut off, thou shalt see it” (Psalm 37:32-34).

We are always ultimately victorious, though we may suffer some losses for identifying with Jesus- (perhaps not being given proper credit for things we have done, certain job promotions, being excluded from certain groups, etc.) – and doing good.
Jesus said, “These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world” (John 16:33 New King James Version).

“Beloved, do not think it strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened to you;
13 but rejoice to the extent that you partake of Christ’s sufferings, that when His glory is revealed, you may also be glad with exceeding joy.
14 If you are reproached for the name of Christ, blessed are you, for the Spirit of glory and of God rests upon you. On their part He is blasphemed, but on your part He is glorified. 15 But let none of you suffer as a murderer, a thief, an evildoer, or as a busybody in other people’s matters.
16 Yet if anyone suffers as a Christian, let him not be ashamed, but let him glorify God in this matter. 17 For the time has come for judgment to begin at the house of God; and if it begins with us first, what will be the end of those who do not obey the gospel of God? 18 Now “If the righteous one is scarcely saved, Where will the ungodly and the sinner appear?”
19 Therefore let those who suffer according to the will of God commit their souls to Him in doing good, as to a faithful Creator”
(1 Peter 4:12-19 New King James Version).

Father, we fast and pray that this gospel, the truth, will be presented to every man, woman, boy and girl throughout the entire world so they can receive eternal life, escape hell and enter into heaven, while there is still time. Thank you and praise you in The Mighty Name of Jesus. Amen.

God’s Love is Bigger than Rocket Science

John 3:16

New International Version

16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

The Way to Salvation – Straight Ahead

1. Romans 5:8, ESV: but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8, KJV: But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

2. Romans 3:23

Romans 3:23 In-Context

21 But now apart from the law the righteousness of God has been made known, to which the Law and the Prophets testify.

22 This righteousness is given through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference between Jew and Gentile,

23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,

24 and all are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.

25 God presented Christ as a sacrifice of atonement, through the shedding of his blood—to be received by faith. He did this to demonstrate his righteousness, because in his forbearance he had left the sins committed beforehand unpunished—

(for·bear·ance –
patient self-control; restraint and tolerance.)

“forbearance from taking action”

3. Romans 6:23 NLT

“For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord.”

4. Romans 10:9-13

New International Version

9 If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved. 11 As Scripture says, “Anyone who believes in him will never be put to shame.”  12 For there is no difference between Jew and Gentile —the same Lord is Lord of all and richly blesses all who call on him, 13 for, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”

John 17 AMP
The Disciples in the World

13 But now I am coming to You; and I say these things [while I am still] in the world so that they may experience My joy made full and complete and perfect within them [filling their hearts with My delight]. 14 I have given to them Your word [the message You gave Me]; and the world has hated them because they are not of the world and do not belong to the world, just as I am not of the world and do not belong to it. 15 I do not ask You to take them out of the world, but that You keep them and protect them from the evil one. 16 They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. 17 Sanctify them in the truth [set them apart for Your purposes, make them holy]; Your word is truth. 18 Just as You commissioned and sent Me into the world, I also have commissioned and sent them (believers) into the world. 19 For their sake [e]I sanctify Myself [to do Your will], so that they also may be sanctified [set apart, dedicated, made holy] in [Your] truth.

If you don’t pray you won’t stay.

Prayer based on our relationship with God  and knowledge His Word is the most powerful thing we can do for others and the
better we get to know Jesus the more
pertinent (relevant or applicable to a particular matter) and powerful our prayers become.

All you  have to do is look around you and see the intense evil permeating throughout society today and you see that God’s Word (the Bible), although written in ancient times, is more accurate than next week’s news stories.

Brothers and sisters,  Jesus said that in the last days, “Many will turn away from me and betray and hate each other. 11 And many false prophets will appear and will deceive many people. 
12 Sin will be rampant everywhere, and the love of many will grow cold. 13 But the one who endures to the end will be saved’ (Matthew 24:10-13  New Living Translation).

“And we can be sure that we know him if we obey his commandments. 4 If
someone claims, “I know God,” but doesn’t obey God’s commandments, that person is a liar and is not living in the truth.
5 But those who obey God’s word truly show how completely they love him. That is how we know we are living in him. 6 Those who say they live in God should live their lives as Jesus did.  7 Dear friends, I am not writing a new commandment for you; rather it is an old one you have had from the very beginning. This old commandment—to love one another—is the same message you heard before.
8 Yet it is also new. Jesus lived the truth of this commandment, and you also are living it. For the darkness is disappearing, and the true light is already shining … “15 Do not love this world nor the things it offers you, for when you love the world, you do not have the love of the Father in you. 16 For the world offers only a craving for physical pleasure, a craving for everything we see, and pride in our achievements and possessions. These are not from the Father, but are from this world. 17 And this world is fading away, along with everything that people crave. But anyone who does what pleases God will live forever”  (1 John 2:3-8, 15-17 ).

1 John 5:4
New International Version
“For everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith.”

New Living Translation
“For every child of God defeats this evil world, and we achieve this victory through our faith.”

Father, give us wisdom and strength to live lives that are pleasing to you as we look forward to the return of Jesus Christ. Bless us to light up every place that we go so we can lead as many people that you will give us into a personal relationship with Jesus.

FASTING AND PRAYER SETTING OURSELVES APART FOR GOD

Please join  us as we fast and pray until 3:00 P. M. (or longer if you choose to). 

WE ACCEPT NOTHING LESS THAN VICTORY!
WHENEVER YOU READ THE WORD OF GOD IT MUST BE MIXED WITH FAITH OR YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE HIS BEST FOR YOU!

People who practice fasting receive health benefits but we who fast for Godly purposes accomplish things in the spiritual realm as well as reaping physical benefits.

Jesus, the Creator of all things, began His earthly ministry, being led by the Holy Spirit into the desert to fast and pray. There He was tempted by the devil, and the Lord defeated him first in the spiritual realm by using the Word of God before/enroute to defeating him at the Cross (battles are won first in the spiritual realm before manifestations materialize in the natural realm).

See Matthew 4, it is so important! https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Matthew%204&version=NIV

LORD, THANK YOU FOR YOUR GRACE, FOR YOUR BRAND NEW MERCIES THIS MORNING, AND FOR ALL THAT YOU ACCOMPLISHED AT CALVARY (BY DYING ON THE CROSS FOR OUR SINS). You destroyed the works of the devil, defeated death, hell, and the grave, and you have provided complete victory for your people in every area of our lives. THANK YOU!

Father, please bless us to die to our own (selfish) hopes, dreams, and desires, and live only to see what you desire to come to pass. Yes, bless our desires to line up with your desires. God knows what is best for us, He even wants better for us than we want for ourselves, and
promises to give us our hearts desires but they must line up with his Word. “Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart” (Psalm 37:4).

Father, please take our lives and make/turn them into something beautiful where you get all the honor and the glory and the praise for all of it. Thank you in the Mighty Name of Jesus, Amen.

Please help us to focus on getting your Word out to the masses so they may hear the gospel message about Jesus and receive Him into their hearts before the end comes.

Matthew 24:14

Your Word says, “And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come” (New International Version).

“And the Good News about the Kingdom will be preached throughout the whole world, so that all nations will hear it; and then the end will come” (New Living Translation).

Father, we understand by your Word that, “At just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly”
(Romans 5:6 NIV).

We also understand by Your Word that one day, “Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away. But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father” (Mark 13:31-32).

Father, regarding those who live in darkness we know that Christ’s return will come at a time when they do not expect it and, “That the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night” (1 Thessalonians 5:2), so we ask that they will turn their lives over to Jesus before the rapture and the end of this world as we know it.

“For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: 17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord” (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17).

SO BROTHERS AND SISTERS, HOW SHOULD WE BEHAVE?
I’M GLAD YOU ASKED.

All of these things we ask and thank you for, in Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.

Beloved, as we look around at the condition of the world today we realize that we need wisdom from God to live a truly successful life and to avoid every trap of the devil.

If you need wisdom, ask our generous God, and he will give it to you. He will not rebuke you for asking.

–James 1:5

Let’s fast and pray for God’s wisdom as we live out the rest of our lives here on earth.

Father, your Word says that if we ask for wisdom believing for it that you will give it to us. So we ask you for your Godly wisdom by faith, believing you will grant it to us. Also, please continually help us to win people to Christ. Thank you,and praise you for these things and for all things, in Jesus’ Precious, Holy, Awesome, Unmatchable Name, we pray, Amen.

Please read and meditate prayerfully on the following Scriptures: Re: WISDOM

1 Kings 3
“At Gibeon the Lord appeared to Solomon during the night in a dream, and God said, “Ask for whatever you want me to give you.”
6 Solomon answered, “You have shown great kindness to your servant, my father David, because he was faithful to you and righteous and upright in heart. You have continued this great kindness to him and have given him a son to sit on his throne this very day.

7 “Now, Lord my God, you have made your servant king in place of my father David. But I am only a little child(R) and do not know how to carry out my duties. 8 Your servant is here among the people you have chosen, a great people, too numerous to count or number. 9 So give your servant a discerning heart to govern your people and to distinguish between right and wrong. For who is able to govern this great people of yours?”
10 The Lord was pleased that Solomon had asked for this. 11 So God said to him, “Since you have asked for this and not for long life or wealth for yourself, nor have asked for the death of your enemies but for discernment in administering justice, 12 I will do what you have asked. I will give you a wise and discerning heart, so that there will never have been anyone like you, nor will there ever be. 13 Moreover, I will give you what you have not asked for—both wealth and honor—so that in your lifetime you will have no equal among kings. 14 And if you walk in obedience to me and keep my decrees and commands as David your father did, I will give you a long life.”

18 “There is no judgment against anyone who believes in him. But anyone who does not believe in him has already been judged for not believing in God’s one and only Son. 19 And the judgment is based on this fact: God’s light came into the world, but people loved the darkness more than the light, for their actions were evil. 20 All who do evil hate the light and refuse to go near it for fear their sins will be exposed. 21 But those who do what is right come to the light so others can see that they are doing what God wants.[h]”

Ephesians 5

New Living Translation

Living in the Light

5 Imitate God, therefore, in everything you do, because you are his dear children. 2 Live a life filled with love, following the example of Christ. He loved us[a] and offered himself as a sacrifice for us, a pleasing aroma to God.
3 Let there be no sexual immorality, impurity, or greed among you. Such sins have no place among God’s people. 
4 Obscene stories, foolish talk, and coarse jokes—these are not for you. Instead, let there be thankfulness to God. 5 You can be sure that no immoral, impure, or greedy person will inherit the Kingdom of Christ and of God. For a greedy person is an idolater, worshiping the things of this world. 6 Don’t be fooled by those who try to excuse these sins, for the anger of God will fall on all who disobey him. 7 Don’t participate in the things these people do. 8 For once you were full of darkness, but now you have light from the Lord. So live as people of light! 9 For this light within you produces only what is good and right and true. 10 Carefully determine what pleases the Lord. 11 Take no part in the worthless deeds of evil and darkness; instead, expose them. 12 It is shameful even to talk about the things that ungodly people do in secret. 13 But their evil intentions will be exposed when the light shines on them, 14 for the light makes everything visible. This is why it is said, “Awake, O sleeper, rise up from the dead, and Christ will give you light.”

Father, bless your Light (Jesus) in us to so shine that unbelievers will see you in us, be led to turn from darkness (trapped by the devil, living in sin) and receive/accept Christ into their hearts while there is still time.

“God has now revealed to us his mysterious will regarding Christ—which is to fulfill his own good plan. And this is the plan: At the right time he will bring everything together under the authority of Christ—everything in heaven and on earth” (Ephesians 1:9-10)

Father, we give you honor, glory, and praise for who you are, and all that you do. “Whatever is good and perfect is a gift coming down to us from God our Father, who created all the lights in the heavens. He never changes or casts a shifting shadow. He chose to give birth to us by giving us his true word. And we, out of all creation, became his prized possession” (James 1:17).

We fast and pray for a massive endtime revival that so far exceeds all previous revivals combined, for a complete and total end to abortion, lies, acts of hate, and all other evils committed by the devil and demons, and evil people. We ask that you save everyone while there is still time left. Please intervene with your powerful right hand to make sure that those you have chosen will win in every midterm election in America, and in the case of every political event in the world. Please bless your people to take our rightful places in the Kingdom of God so that we will be and do all that is according to your will.
Father, we love and praise you! We realize that one day that every knee will bow and Confess that Jesus is Lord. We ask that they do it now because they choose to by their free will rather than wait until they have to. It will be too late if people wait until they have died. There is no such thing as purgatory (a place in between life and death) where you get another chance to get it right with God.

Just as you waited for people to repent then, you are exercising patience in these very last days giving everyone a chance to repent and turn to you.

So, Father we ask again for you to please send a revival throughout the world, for all people to give their hearts to Jesus while there is still time. Please save gangbangers, prostutes, pimps, people involved in pornography, liars, thieves, and all sinners while there is still time.
“But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars–their place will be in the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death” (Revelation 21:8).

Please bless them to give their hearts to Jesus and to govern wisely, making Godly decisions, treating people justly, and bringing joy to God’s heart.

NOTE: If you have a family member who is unsaved please share the gospel message that Jesus died to set him or her free from a life of sin, and for them to spend eternity in heaven. If need be, you can pray for God to heal them. Isn’t it wonderful to know that one day we’ll have glorified bodies. But we must also know that God wants us blessed right here on earth even before the new heaven and earth is manifested. PRAISE GOD!

We pray for all of our enemies, known and unknown, to give their hearts to Jesus.

We pray for all churches who claim the name of Jesus to truly receive salvation and the baptism of the Holy Spirit. Let miracles of healing, speaking and praying in tounges, and other manifestations of the Holy Spirit take place among your people.

We pray for each of our own personal needs to be met, spirit, soul, body, financial, material, and every other way.

We pray for America and all Nations to be delivered from the dark and evil powers of the devil and demons, that witchcraft, homosexuality, lesbianism, pornography, sex trafficking, drug dealing and usage, mysticism, devilish ideologies, false religion, and everything that opposes the truth of God’s Word be exposed and that people would be set free from these evil practices.

Pray that the practices of attempting to change the sexual make up (organs) of people whom God created as a female into a male and whom God created as a male into a female (this pertains to children and adults), would be stopped. 

Father, regarding these midterm elections coming up in America, please give us Godly leaders who you will use to get our nation back on track by honoring you, your commands, loving one another, and teaching our children Godly values. We need an outpouring of your Spirit dear God. Please grant these things.

Pray for Cathy to be healed and delivered from cigarettes, for Brandon to be delivered from Marijuana, for Ruby to be set free from drugs, for us to make sure that we have forgiven everyone, even if those who may have hurt you are no longer living.

Matthew 6:15 
But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.

Father, Thank You, and praise you for honoring our prayers, in the Mighty, Precious, Holy, Awesome, Unmatchable Name of Jesus we pray, Amen!

WHENEVER YOU READ THE WORD OF GOD IT MUST BE MIXED WITH FAITH OR YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE HIS BEST FOR YOU!

Father, we pray our leaders, the president, vice president, congress, senate, house of representatives, gpvernors, mayors, the royal family, and every other form of leadership here in America and around the world. Please bless them to give their hearts to Jesus and to govern wisely, making Godly decisions, treating people justly, and bringing joy to God’s heart.

1 Timothy 2
I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people 2 for kings and all those in authority,that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. 3 This is good, and pleases God our Savior, 4 who wants all people to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth.5 For there is one God and one mediator between God and mankind, the man Christ Jesus, 6 who gave himself as a ransom for all people.

Father, bless us to not only be hearers but doers of your Word that we may win many more souls to Christ and give you honor and glory.

James 1
Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. 23 
Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like someone who looks at his face in a mirror 24 
and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like. 25 But whoever looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues in it—not forgetting what they have heard, but doing it—they will be blessed in what they do.

Please bless all orphans and widows to be comforted by your love working through your people to help them with housing, food and clothing, and helping to provide for their every one of their needs.

James 1
26 Those who consider themselves religious and yet do not keep a tight rein on their tongues deceive themselves, and their religion is worthless. 27 Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.

John 14:15
King James Version

15 If ye love me, keep my commandments.

Father, those who bless Israel will themselves be blessed. Bless America to love and treat Israel honorably, not just to get something in return, although you do bless those who bless Israel, but because of genuine love and a deep desire to honor you. We pray for the peace of Jerusalem and safety of Israel and for all Jews to be saved and baptized in your Holy Spirit and with fire, Jesu,,  baptize them in fire. The same for Ukraine, Russia, and all people.

Regarding Israel: Genesis 12:3 

New International Version
3 I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.”

Psalm 122:6 

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: “May those who love you be secure.

Father, bless us to do even greater things than Jesus did during his earthly pilgrimage. Jesus, help us with this for you have gone to the Father and you are praying for us even now.

John 14:12
New International Version

12 Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father.

Father, we are greatly aware of how you poured out your Spirit in the upper room on the Day of Pentecost. We are asking for one last great move of the Holy Spirit (revival) that exceeds all previous revivals combined, by far, for all people before the Great and Awesome return of Christ to take us to live with You (God) forever.

Hebrews 7:25 

Therefore he is able to save completely those who come to God through him, because he always lives to intercede for them.

Acts 2:17-20

“’In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams. Even on my servants, both men and women, I will pour out my Spirit in those days, and they will prophesy I will show wonders in the heavens above and signs on the earth below, blood and fire and billows of smoke. The sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before the coming of the great and glorious day of the Lord.

Father, heal marriages,
families, friendships ordained by you, and bless these people to be surrounded by people you have ordained to be in their lives. We pray for our children, grandchildren, families, and for everyone to be saved and baptized in your Holy Spirit and with fire. Thank you, and praise you, in the Mighty, Powerful, Holy, Unmatchable Name of Jesus, Amen.

WHENEVER YOU READ THE WORD OF GOD IT MUST BE MIXED WITH FAITH OR YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE HIS BEST FOR YOU!

Public schools were started by the Christian Church. The Bible, prayer, and The Ten Commandments were central to our education.

“Many of America’s and England’s oldest universities were established as religious institutions, but now they advocate evolutionary thinking. What happened?”

Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Oxford—Once Christian? |
https://answersingenesis.org/christianity/harvard-yale-princeton-oxford-once-christian/

When was the attempt to keep our children from having their focus on God, the Bible, The Ten Commandments, learning to respect authority, and prayer removed from our schools?

On June 25, 1962, the U.S. Supreme Court declared school-sponsored prayers unconstitutional in the landmark case Engel v. Vitale. Public outrage was immediate and widespread.Jul 29, 2012

The Constitution of the United States, perhaps the 2nd greatest document ever to the Bible, was written from a Christian (Biblical)
perspective. That’s why we have enjoyed so many freedoms in this country. At this time in history there are forces trying to remove every vestige of the True and Living God from us. As True Christians, God’s very Elect, we cannot, and must not, just stand on the sidelines and let them go any further without us praying and seeking God’s intervention.

“You Have Authority Because of the Name of JesusThe name of Jesus alone gives you authority you cannot possibly have without legitimate identification with Him. Not just anyone can use the name of Jesus and be heard by Him. Jesus has only giventhose of us who have established a relationship with Him the authority and power touse His name. Jesus said, “If you ask anything in My name, I will do it” (John 14:14). He has given you the right to use His name as authorization to take your petition before God’s throne. He said, “Whatever you ask the Father in My name He will give you. Until now you have asked nothing in My name. Ask, and you will receive, that yourjoy may be full” (John 16:23-24). That is an amazing promise, and its full significance must be anchored in our minds and hearts.
     
      Jesus’ name is greater than all other names. “God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of thoseon earth, and of those under the earth, and that every tongue should confess thatJesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father” (Philippians 2:9-11). You must have this truth etched in your heart and mind so it cannot be stolen away.
     
      Don’t minimize what Jesus did for you by questioning the authority He has given youto pray in His name” (Omartian, p. 52)

1. Please pray for America to repent of her sins of turning away from God, hedonism (serving the God of pleasure), ungodly sexual practices, the love of money, abortions, lying, stealing, drug abuse, astrology, mysticism, false religion, cults, Satanic practices, witchcraft, and everything that goes against God’s will.

2. Please bless America to return to her roots and become a much stronger Christian nation than she has ever been.

3. Please send a greater revival to your Church in America and around the world than has ever taken place  that exceeds all previous revivals combined, that spills out into society causing mass repentance and drawing record numbers of people to Jesus while there is still time left.

4. Also, please pray for whatever God puts on your heart.

“The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective” (James 5:16).

“Prayer … energizes the heart of a believer through the power of the Spirit. Consistent prayer also releases the power of God’s blessing on your life and circumstances. Jesus said, “When you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen” (Internet, Sep 19, 2020).

We must not forget for a second that we are to, “Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour” (1 Peter 5:8). He is beyond evil. He is trying to take our spouses, children, families, breakthroughs, increase, and lives.
We must pray for the soul of America taking back what the enemy (devil and demons) has stolen from us!

Father, we fast and pray for America that our nation would be enlightened to the God of all creation (The God of the Holy Bible on which this nation was founded). That they would see the evil of performing operations on children trying to turn boys into girls and girls into boys. God, you don’t make mistakes. You created them male and female.

May Americans see the evil of taking the innocent lives of children in their mother’s wombs so each state would abolish abortions.

Please bless Americans to see the beauty of marriage which you created between one man and one woman and recognize only this arrangement as legal God ordained marriage.

Please deliver America from drug additions and attempts to legalize drugs making it the norm.  Over turn those which have already been legalized. 

Please intervene so that the current administration is unsuccessful in their efforts to make America into a socialist – communist nation by removing our Judeo Christian heritage.

Please bless SCOTUS (the Supreme Court of the United States) to go even further in correcting the ungodly choices which America has made and the attempts even being made now and in the future to make us a Godless nation.

Please elect Godly men and women in the midterm elections so America will shine for Christ and all citizens will be truly valued.

Please deliver Americans from the love of money which is, “The root of all evil.”

Please send revival and bless all Americans to hear the gospel message, repent of their sins and (receive Christ into their hearts) and be born again and baptized in the Holy Spirit and with fire before the end comes.

Please remove barriers of ‘political correctness’ that we may be able to freely “Speak the truth in love.” This will help to win so many people to Jesus!

When we read Revelation 12 we find that Satan actually realizes his time is short. So in these last days he has stepped up his attacks on mankind. If you question this just look around. The increase in drugs (availability and use – legal and illegal), the porn industry, suicide, lies, and the effort to destroy our nation by turning her away from our Judea Christian values which are at the very center of our being. Yes, despite all the lies that suggest otherwise America was started as a Christian nation. This is why America became the most powerful nation on earth, not because of the genius or superiority of people but because they put Jesus first in the beginning.

Reflection:
1. The Great Apostasy

“Now, brethren, concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him, we ask you, 2 not to be soon shaken in mind or troubled, either by spirit or by word or by letter, as if from us, as though the day of Christ had come. 3 Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition” (2 Thessalonians 2:1-3 New King James Version).

2. God promises us that we, “That shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved” (Matthew 24:13 KJV).

Let’s fast and pray for our brothers and sisters and each other that we may be protected from the evil one (the devil) and all demons and from all evil that already is and is coming upon the earth that we may endure to the end.

Meditation:
Both pray out loud and meditate upon these Scriptures and claim them as God’s promises for you.

When 3 massive armies were coming to destroy Israel see in 2 Chronicles 20 how God gave them victory and he’ll do it for each of us time and time again.

2 Chronicles 20:15 NLT: He said, “Listen, all you people of Judah and Jerusalem! Listen, King Jehoshaphat! This is what the LORD says: Do not be afraid! Don’t be discouraged by this mighty army, for the battle is not yours, but God’s.

2 Chronicles 20:21 NLT: After consulting the people, the king appointed singers to walk ahead of the army, singing to the LORD and praising him for his holy splendor. This is what they sang: “Give thanks to the LORD; his faithful love endures forever!”

Isaiah 54:17

New Living Translation
But in that coming day no weapon turned against you will succeed. You will silence every voice raised up to accuse you. These benefits are enjoyed by the servants of the LORD; their vindication will come from me. I, the LORD, have spoken!

New Living Translation Psalms 27:2-14 2 When evil people come to devour me, when my enemies and foes attack me, they will stumble and fall.

Psalm 13:5 New Living Translation 5 But I trust in your unfailing love. I will rejoice because you have rescued me.

 

Just as with Joshua God promises us that,
“No one will be able to stand up against you all the days of your life. As I was with Moses, so I will be with you; I will never leave you nor forsake you. 6Be strong and courageous, because you will lead these people to inherit the land I swore to their forefathers to give them.7Be strong and very courageous. Be careful to obey all the law my servant Moses gave you; do not turn from it to the right or to the left, that you may be successful wherever you go.8Do not let this Book of the Law depart from your mouth; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.9Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go” (Joshua 1:5-9 NIV MIT).

WHENEVER YOU READ THE WORD OF GOD IT MUST BE MIXED WITH FAITH OR YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE HIS BEST FOR YOU!

Proverbs 4:23 GNT

Be careful how you think; your life is shaped by your thoughts.

Proverbs 4:23

New Century Version

23 Be careful what you think, because your thoughts run your life.

Father, we fast and pray as we take authority over our thoughts (our thought lives, the way we think) and all negative thinking with your Word. We rebuke all thoughts that are originated by the world, flesh, devil and demons and render them dead, harmless, ineffective against us, in the Name of Jesus (See 2 Corinthians 10:5)!

When thoughts come that are contrary to the Word of God we do not accept them, we do not verbalize them. We rebuke them in the Name of Jesus.

For example, if the thoughts that come to us say, “You’re a loser” we quickly replace it with the Word of God saying, “I am more than a conqueror”
(See Romans 8:37).

If the thought comes that says “You’ll never have anything” we say “My God has supplied all of my needs” (See Philippians 4:19).

If the thought comes that, “You can’t accomplish a certain task” you say, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” (Philippians 4:13).

If you have failed at some point and voices are telling you, “You blew it” – you make sure that you confess
whatever the sin is to God, repent (turn away from such sin), and receive his forgiveness (See 1 John 4:9) and continue to walk victoriously in the fullness of God’s anointing on your life, not repeating the same types of offenses.

WHENEVER YOU READ THE WORD OF GOD IT MUST BE MIXED WITH FAITH OR YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE HIS BEST FOR YOU!

Mark 11
“Have faith in God,” Jesus answered. 23 “Truly I tell you, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in their heart but believes that what they say will happen, it will be done for them. 24 Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.

Father, your Word says, “Draw near to God and He will draw near to you” (James 4:8 New King James Version) so we draw near to you asking that you forgive us for our sins as we repent before you.

We take authority over all the mountains in our lives:

Hindrances of the devil and every demon,

Over poverty and lack,

Over doubt and fear,

Over every bondage in our lives,

Over indecision,

Over not being able to dream big,

Over everything that limits our relationship with God,

Over lack of confidence,

We take authority over these and over every other mountain in our lives and cast them into the sea!

Over every offense which is, “the bait of Satan “to throw us off course from receiving and achieving all that God has planned for our lives. So be careful not to let people offend and infuriate you. Whenever someone attacks you by insulting you quickly forgive and pray for that person or those people, whatever the situation.

We must always remember that our enemy, “the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour” (1 Peter 5:8).

And we must remember that, “For we are not fighting against flesh-and
-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places” (Ephesians 6:12 NLT)

SALVATION IS SUCH A HUGE WORD – IT COVERS SO MUCH TERRITORY.

 

Psalm 37 (NIV)

intent on putting them to death; 33 but the Lord will not leave them in the power of the wicked
or let them be condemned when brought to trial.
34 Hope in the Lord
  and keep his way.
He will exalt you to inherit the land; when the wicked are destroyed, you will see it. 35 I have seen a wicked and ruthless man  flourishing like a luxuriant native tree,
36 but he soon passed away and was no more;  though I looked for him, he could not be found. 37 Consider the blameless, 
observe the upright; a future awaits those who seek peace. 38 But all sinners will be destroyed;  there will be no future[e] for the wicked. 39 The salvation of the righteous comes from the Lord; he is their stronghold in time of trouble. 40 The Lord helps them and
delivers them; he
delivers them from the wicked and saves 
them, because they take refuge in him.

“My Armor and Protection—God’s Faithful Promises
He will cover you with his feathers. He will shelter you with his wings.  His faithful promises are your armor and protection.

—Psalm 91:4 (NLT)

 
Heavenly Father,

Thank You that, out of Your great love for me, You cover me—lovingly sheltering me under Your wings.  
Help me to put my hope in the armor and protection of Your faithful promises.

Thank You that You cover me, that You draw me close to You—that You hide me from the attacks of the enemy and shield me from the storms of this life.

Just as a hen gathers her chicks close to herself and covers them with her protective wings, so gather me to Yourself and shelter me there—that my life would be hidden in You.

Thank You that I can know and experience the truth, that all Your promises are true—and that You are always faithful to Your promises.

For within the Truth of Your faithful promises, I find the armor I need to cover me when attacked, and the protection that keeps me from all harm. 

Thank You that, out of Your great love for me, You cover me—lovingly sheltering me under Your wings.  
Help me to put my hope in the armor and protection of Your faithful promises.

In the name of Jesus, Amen.”

WHENEVER YOU READ THE WORD OF GOD IT MUST BE MIXED WITH FAITH OR YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE HIS BEST FOR YOU!

“Jesus died for His Church … He’s coming back for His Church!”

Father, we fast and pray for our Christian brothers snd sisters who are struggling in their walk with you. Please deliver them from the traps, tricks, Plots, and plans of the devil to shipwreck (destroy) their lives.

We realize that his plan is to, “steal, kill, and destroy” (John 10:10a), and how he, “prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour” (1 Peter 5:8). But your Word clearly states that we are to, “Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you” (James 4:7 NIV).

Please help them to see any error in their lives, any wrong choices they have made, to repent of it and draw nearer to Jesus so they will receive His complete acceptance and experience victory in their lives.

WE ACCEPT NOTHING LESS THAN VICTORY!
WHENEVER YOU READ THE WORD OF GOD IT MUST BE MIXED WITH FAITH OR YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE HIS BEST FOR YOU!

Please fast and pray that God blesses his people to realize and act upon the urgency to pray on a whole new level.

Pray for us to be sensitive to the Holy Spirit’s leading when, what, and where to pray.

Please bless your people to spend more time praying in tounges.
When we pray in the Spirit we can be sure to pray God’s perfect will for whatever the situation is.
Romans 8:26;

Please pray for the President and Vice President of the United States, for congress, the senate, house of representatives, governors, mayors, city counselors, and every level of government for them to give their hearts to Jesus and to be granted God’s wisdom to make the right decisions, even changing ungodly egregious laws.

When government officials are honest and do things right, having no bias or racial hatred in their hearts, when they are committed to upholding the law for everyone it pleases God. Of course, we see the corruption pervading America and other nations around the world but we are to still pray for our leaders. In addition to asking God to save them we are to ask that they make Godly decisions pertaining to not allowing people who are born male to use the same restrooms as those created as female by God nor should the same two sexes be allowed to participate in the same sporting events to compete against each other. What we see what is happening in the world today as just what God warned us would be happening in the last days leading up to Christ’s return.

You see, God has blessed us to be living in in these final days of the world, as we know it. No, you weren’t born a day early or an hour too late. When your father’s sperm met your mother’s egg your life began immediately in this world but God really made you even before your natural life began here on earth.

If you have accepted Jesus into your heart, and you have, we are called to pray for those in positions of leadership and all people, even our enemies. We pray for them to be saved and for all of their needs to be met, for marriages and families to be healed, etc. We pray for gang members, drug dealers, prostutes, and the list goes on and on to give their hearts to Jesus and for them to be in the center of God’s will for their lives, etc.

We must pray continually (1 Thessalonians 5:17).

1 Timothy 2
New International Version
Instructions on Worship
2 I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people— 2 for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. 3 This is good, and pleases God our Savior, 4 who wants all people to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth. 5 For there is one God and one mediator between God and mankind, the man Christ Jesus, 6 who gave himself as a ransom for all people.

Romans 13
New Living Translation
Respect for Authority
13 Everyone must submit to governing authorities. For all authority comes from God, and those in positions of authority have been placed there by God. 2 So anyone who rebels against authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and they will be punished. 3 For the authorities do not strike fear in people who are doing right, but in those who are doing wrong. Would you like to live without fear of the authorities? Do what is right, and they will honor you. 4 The authorities are God’s servants, sent for your good. But if you are doing wrong, of course you should be afraid, for they have the power to punish you. They are God’s servants, sent for the very purpose of punishing those who do what is wrong. 5 So you must submit to them, not only to avoid punishment, but also to keep a clear conscience.

6 Pay your taxes, too, for these same reasons. For government workers need to be paid. They are serving God in what they do. 7 Give to everyone what you owe them: Pay your taxes and government fees to those who collect them, and give respect and honor to those who are in authority.

WE ACCEPT NOTHING LESS THAN VICTORY!
WHENEVER YOU READ THE WORD OF GOD IT MUST BE MIXED WITH FAITH OR YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE HIS BEST FOR YOU!

With the extreme increase of wickedness permeating throughout the world it so clear that we are living in the last days.

Please join me in fasting and praying for God’s Church to experience a revival so much more powerful than all previous revivals combined that will not only strengthen current believers but will draw so many sinners into the Kingdom of God while there is still time.

Also, pray for God to do miracles in the midterm elections so that His people will be paced into places of leadership in Washington DC and throughout the country (if Godly leaders are not put into positions of leadership we will not recognize America anymore).

Pray for God’s Kingdom to come, for His will to be done in our lives and the lives of all mankind on earth.

Things That Will Happen in the Last Days

3 You must understand that in the last days there will come times of much trouble. 2 People will love themselves and money. They will have pride and tell of all the things they have done. They will speak against God. Children and young people will not obey their parents. People will not be thankful and they will not be holy. 3 They will not love each other. No one can get along with them. They will tell lies about others. They will not be able to keep from doing things they know they should not do. They will be wild and want to beat and hurt those who are good. 4 They will not stay true to their friends. They will act without thinking. They will think too much of themselves. They will love fun instead of loving God. 5 They will do things to make it look as if they are Christians. But they will not receive the power that is for a Christian. Keep away from such people.

6 These are the kind of people who go from house to house. They talk to foolish women who are loaded down with sins and all kinds of sinful desires. 7 Such women are always listening to new teaching. But they are never able to understand the truth. 8 Jannes and Jambres fought against Moses. So do these teachers fight against the truth today. Their minds think only of sinful things. They have turned against the Christian teaching. 9 They will not get very far. Their foolish teaching will be seen by everyone. That was the way it was with the two who worked against Moses.

A Call to Remain Faithful

17 But you, my dear friends, must remember what the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ predicted. 18 They told you that in the last times there would be scoffers whose purpose in life is to satisfy their ungodly desires. 19 These people are the ones who are creating divisions among you. They follow their natural instincts because they do not have God’s Spirit in them.

20 But you, dear friends, must build each other up in your most holy faith, pray in the power of the Holy Spirit,[g] 21 and await the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ, who will bring you eternal life. In this way, you will keep yourselves safe in God’s love.

22 And you must show mercy to[h] those whose faith is wavering. 
23 Rescue others by snatching them from the flames of judgment. Show mercy to still others,[i] but do so with great caution, hating the sins that contaminate their lives.[j]

 

 

The Parable of the The Parable of the Sower

4 Again Jesus began to teach by the lake. The crowd that gathered around him was so large that he got into a boat and sat in it out on the lake, while all the people were along the shore at the water’s edge. 2 He taught them many things by parables, and in his teaching said: 3 “Listen! A farmer went out to sow his seed. 4 As he was scattering the seed, some fell along the path, and the birds came and ate it up. 5 Some fell on rocky places, where it did not have much soil. It sprang up quickly, because the soil was shallow. 6 But when the sun came up, the plants were scorched, and they withered because they had no root. 7 Other seed fell among thorns, which grew up and choked the plants, so that they did not bear grain. 8 Still other seed fell on good soil. It came up, grew and produced a crop, some multiplying thirty, some sixty, some a hundred times.”

9 Then Jesus said, “Whoever has ears to hear, let them hear.”

10 When he was alone, the Twelve and the others around him asked him about the parables. 11 He told them, “The secret of the kingdom of God has been given to you. But to those on the outside everything is said in parables 12 so that,

“‘they may be ever seeing but never perceiving,
    and ever hearing but never understanding;
otherwise they might turn and be forgiven!’[a]”

13 Then Jesus said to them, “Don’t you understand this parable? How then will you understand any parable? 14 The farmer sows the word. 15 Some people are like seed along the path, where the word is sown. As soon as they hear it, Satan comes and takes away the word that was sown in them. 16 Others, like seed sown on rocky places, hear the word and at once receive it with joy. 17 But since they have no root, they last only a short time. When trouble or persecution comes because of the word, they quickly fall away. 18 Still others, like seed sown among thorns, hear the word; 19 but the worries of this life, the deceitfulness of wealth and the desires for other things come in and choke the word, making it unfruitful. 20 Others, like seed sown on good soil, hear the word, accept it, and produce a crop—some thirty, some sixty, some a hundred times what was sown.”

Please join me in fasting and praying for God’s Word and will To be advanced throughout America and around the world.  It is so clear that if ever there was a need for help from heaven it is now. It is just like it was in the days of Noah.  The stench of corruption is all around us.  We need a move of the Holy Spirit to convict evil people of their sins and to encourage God’s people to be more about  praying (interceding) for each other and the lost (sinners) loving people and winning them to christ in these last days.  

Father, please send an unprecedented outpouring of your Holy Spirit upon your Church and throughout the world.  Empower your people with power from on high that we may be emboldened to get the gospel message to the masses of people all around the world.  

May heaven be filled with more and more people and hell depopulated. 

Pray for God’s people to be healed, spirit, soul, and body, and to be blessed with an abundance of finances.

Thank you, Father, in Jesus’ Name, Amen.

WHENEVER YOU READ THE WORD OF GOD IT MUST BE MIXED WITH FAITH OR YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE HIS BEST FOR YOU!

Hi Everyone,

Would you please join me in fasting and praying, but first read the Scriptures below: You will find the prayers listed afterward. Thank you!

Although my presentation may seem a little disjointed please take a look at it and meditate on the things below. God will make it all clear.
I would like to emphasize that I believe that giving and praying are inextricably linked. To this point I say asking a person, How’s your faith? can interchangeably be asked, Are you tithing? and How’s your prayer life?

1. WHEN JOB PRAYED FOR HIS ACCUSERS GOD BLESSED HIM TWICE AS MUCH AS BEFORE

Verse of the Day:
When Job prayed for his friends, the LORD restored his fortunes. In fact, the LORD gave him twice as much as before!

–Job 42:10

2. When asked which was the most important commandment Jesus answered, “The most important one,” answered Jesus, “is this: ‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. 30 Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ 31 The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.”
(Mark 12:29-31).

3. THIS IS THE ONLY PLACE GOD SAYS TO TEST HIM

“Bring all the tithes into the storehouse so there will be enough food in my Temple. If you do,” says the Lord of Heaven’s Armies, “I will open the windows of heaven for you. I will pour out a blessing so great you won’t have enough room to take it in! Try it! Put me to the test” (Malachi 3:10).

4. A LITTLE ENCOURAGEMENT REGARDING OUR CHRISTIAN LOVED ONES WHO HAVE LEFT THIS WORLD AHEAD OF US AND BEING REUNITED WITH THEM IN THE FUTURE

Believers Who Have Died

13 Brothers and sisters, we do not want you to be uninformed about those who sleep in death, so that you do not grieve like the rest of mankind, who have no hope.14 For we believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him.15 According to the Lord’s word, we tell you that we who are still alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will certainly not precede those who have fallen asleep.16 For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. 17 After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever. 18 Therefore encourage one another with these words.

5. “Never stop praying” (1 Thessalonians 5:17).

 

6. WOW, THIS ONE IS FOR FREE

1 Thessalonians 4

Live to Please God
4 Finally, dear brothers and sisters,[a] we urge you in the name of the Lord Jesus to live in a way that pleases God, as we have taught you. You live this way already, and we encourage you to do so even more. 2 For you remember what we taught you by the authority of the Lord Jesus.

3 God’s will is for you to be holy, so stay away from all sexual sin. 4 Then each of you will control his own body and live in holiness and honor— 5 not in lustful passion like the pagans who do not know God and his ways. 6 Never harm or cheat a fellow believer in this matter by violating his wife,[c] for the Lord avenges all such sins, as we have solemnly warned you before. 7 God has called us to live holy lives, not impure lives. 8 Therefore, anyone who refuses to live by these rules is not disobeying human teaching but is rejecting God, who gives his Holy Spirit to you.

Please fast and pray;

Father, please bless your people to live holy, blameless lives that truly represent you not only amongst ourselves and in church on Sundays but to a lost and dying world in need of salvation that we may win them to Christ thereby helping them inherit heaven and escape hell. Praise God!

Heavenly Father, bless us so that prayer becomes so frequent to us that it is as natural as breathing (bringing about supernatural results).

LASTLY: TITHING AND GIVING INTO GOD’S KINGDOM IS A CONDITION OF THE HEART – IT IS SPIRITUAL

“Wherever your treasure is, there the desires of your heart will also be” (Luke 22:34). If we want to know the condition of our hearts (spirits – the real us) all we have to do is check out where our money is going. Are we putting God first in our finances?

This is our 40th week of fasting and praying. If you have not fully come on board yet please do so today. 40 is a very significant number to God.

WHENEVER YOU READ THE WORD OF GOD IT MUST BE MIXED WITH FAITH OR YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE HIS BEST FOR YOU!

God tells us to keep on praying.

“Pray without ceasing” (1 Thessalonians 5:17).

He also says, “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land” (2 Chronicles 7:14).

Our world is in great turmoil and while God is all powerful he has created and blessed his people to be an intricate part of his kingdom and has placed a huge responsibility in our hands to fulfill his plans for all people, the world, and his plans for eternity.

So many of our brothers and sisters have lived expecting Christ to return while they were alive in this world but it didn’t happen. We too are expecting Jesus to return during our lifetime. With all of the things going on in this world today I really believe that he is going to return very soon.

The Bible says, “And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;
26 Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. 27 And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. 28 And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh” (Luke 21:25-28). https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Luke%2021&version=KJV

Dear God, we fast and pray that you would raise up an army of prayer warriors such as the world has never known that will commit to praying/interceding for your will to be done on earth as it is in heaven (Matthew 6:10).
Please heal your body (the Church), remove gossip, alternate lifestyles of every kind, lying, stealing, the love of money, and everything that you are opposed to from the midst of us, please bless all sinners to be saved and baptized in your Holy Spirit and with fire, in Jesus’ Name, Amen.

For those who have not committed to praying so far please begin to set a goal of praying for at least an hour a day. For those of us who have made it a habit of interceding please make an even deeper commitment to pray.

While we can and should pray throughout each day we also have to make special, secret, private times of being alone with God (without interruptions) as we pray according to his will.

It is so important but we begin to pray each day early before we leave the house, before getting the children off to school, before having coffee, before, before, before …

Regarding Jesus, “And in the morning, rising up a great while before day, he went out, and departed into a solitary place, and there prayed” (Mark 1:35).

Father, please bless everyone to know Jesus and be ready for the rapture which is so close at hand. We don’t know the exact time of Jesus’ return but the signs of his return have increased. The world is in such turmoil but we pray and have his peace that passes all understanding (Philippians 4:6-7; John John 14:27;).

PLEASE PRAY!

I LOVE ALL OF YOU!

There is salvation in no one else! God has given no other name under heaven by which we must be saved.”
Acts 4:12

One brother said something like, “we are in this world to magnify and glorify the name of Jesus.” Think about it. This should humble us. We were created by Him and are in this world for such a short time before going on to spend eternity with him.

While we are in this world Jesus said, “Whoever is ashamed of me and my words, the Son of Man will be ashamed of them when he comes in his glory and in the glory of the Father and of the holy angels” (Luke 9:26).

New International Version
If anyone is ashamed of me and my words in this adulterous and sinful generation, the Son of Man will be ashamed of them when he comes in his Father’s glory with the holy angels.”Mark 8:38 

But I will honor those who honor me, and I will despise those who think lightly of me.
1 Samuel 2:30

Father, we fast and pray that the Body of Christ (true believers) would become less and less so that Jesus would become more and more so we can share his love with this dying world (wicked and perverse generation). Please give your people a burning desire to win people to Christ while there is still time. God owns this world even though for a short time the devil, his demons, and evil people act as though they do. The victory is really ours. Father, please send a powerful fresh outpouring of your Holy Spirit that The Church has never experienced before that we may have a boldness filled with love to share Jesus (the gospel message) so people will escape hell and make it into heaven.

The earth is the LORD’s, and everything in it. The world and all its people belong to him.
Psalm 24:1

Satan: “The thief’s purpose is to steal and kill and destroy” .

Jesus: “My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life.” John 10:10

WE ACCEPT NOTHING LESS THAN VICTORY!
WHENEVER YOU READ THE WORD OF GOD IT MUST BE MIXED WITH FAITH OR YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE HIS BEST FOR YOU!

Father, we fast and pray that you would raise up more prayer warriors, more soul winners, more pastors, prophets, teachers, preachers, and evangelists who are on Holy fire for Jesus. Men, women, boys, and girls who will finish the work that God started. We know that Jesus defeated death, hell, and the grave, so we who belong to God, even if we were to leave this world before the rapture of the Church that we would immediately be in God’s presence for eternity. So it is a win win situation for God’s people all the way around but he has given us a work to do. We are to “speak the truth in love” sharing the gospel winning souls (people) into God’s Kingdom before the end of the world comes.

Please ask God to help you pray for at least an hour today. Ask him to help you to never go less than a solid hour of prayer each day. Of course, prayer should become for us as natural as breathing.

Although God is all powerful and lacks nothing he has given mankind dominion (authority) over the whole earth (the birds, animals, even creatures of the sea). Of course, this rulership is better exercised under his direction.

This is why schools, colleges and universities, too many of our businesses, countries, and on and on are in such terrible shape. It is because they removed The Only True and Living God from the center.

God tells his true believers,
“If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land” (2 Chronicles 7:14).

WARNING: YOU CANNOT SERVE BOTH GOD AND MONEY!

“But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars —they will be consigned to the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death” (Revelation 21:8).

“No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money” (Matthew 6:24 ). If a person’s main focus in life is making money he or she is heading for ‘ship wreck.’ DESTRUCTION, A TERRIBLE ENDING, HELL! Jesus must have first place in your life. MAKE NO MISTAKE ABOUT IT. JESUS DOESN’T ‘PULL ANY PUNCHES.’  No, he says straight forward,  “Anyone who loves their father or mother more than me is not worthy of me; anyone who loves their son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. 38 Whoever does not take up their cross and follow me is not worthy of me.  39 Whoever finds their life will lose it, and whoever loses their life for my sake will find it” (Matthew 10:37-39). Of course, you must understand that when you put God first he makes you a better parent, better child, better spouse, better everything. He is, “The way and the truth and the life” (John 14:6).  If we truly love people we are to ‘Pull no punches’ either. God says that we are to be, “Speaking the truth in love,” and by so doing “we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ” (Ephesians 4:15).

Lord God, we fast and pray today asking you to give us wisdom and understanding that we may truly operate as the hands and feet of Jesus here on earth. Teach us your ways, help us to be receptive, sensitive, and obedient to the voice of the Holy Spirit. Help us to be willing and obedient to do your will oh God. God, you desire and intend to bless your people in every area of our lives. Please make sure that we are in the direct center of your will for our lives. We make you first in our lives, above money, worldly possessions, and any and everything else. Jesus, you are Lord and God. We are your sheep, we hear and follow your voice only. Continually keep us safe from our enemies, lead us in the path that you have set before us. In this way we are certain to have victory every time. Dear God in heaven you created the heavens and the earth. There is absolutely nothing too hard for you. Your goodness and mercy actually follows us all the days of our lives. Thank you and for these and all things, in the Precious, Awesome, Holy Name of Jesus we pray. Amen!

“Ah, Sovereign LORD, you have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and outstretched arm. Nothing is too hard for you” (Jeremiah 32:17).

Isaiah 1:19
New International Version
19 If you are willing and obedient,  you will eat the good things of the land;(B)

On the contrary God warns us against being disobedient.
Leviticus 18:28 

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Leviticus%2018&version=NIV

New International Version
And if you defile the land, it will vomit you out as it vomited out the nations that were before you.

New Living Translation
So do not defile the land and give it a reason to vomit you out, as it will vomit out the people who live there now.

Jesus Promises the Holy Spirit
15 “If you love me, obey[d] my commandments. 16 And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Advocate,[e] who will never leave you. 17 He is the Holy Spirit, who leads into all truth. The world cannot receive him, because it isn’t looking for him and doesn’t recognize him. But you know him, because he lives with you now and later will be in you.[f] 18 No, I will not abandon you as orphans—I will come to you. 19 Soon the world will no longer see me, but you will see me. Since I live, you also will live. 20 When I am raised to life again, you will know that I am in my Father, and you are in me, and I am in you. 21 Those who accept my commandments and obey them are the ones who love me. And because they love me, my Father will love them. And I will love them and reveal myself to each of them.”

Mark.12 Verses 30 to 31

Mark 12
[30] and you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ [31] The second is this, `You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.”

Matthew 19:26-38 Nl
LT
The Rich Man
16 Someone came to Jesus with this question: “Teacher,[f] what good deed must I do to have eternal life?” 17 “Why ask me about what is good?” Jesus replied. “There is only One who is good. But to answer your question—if you want to receive eternal life, keep[g] the commandments.”
18 “Which ones?” the man asked. And Jesus replied: “‘You must not murder. You must not commit adultery. You must not steal. You must not testify falsely. 19 Honor your father and mother. Love your neighbor as yourself.’[h]”
20 “I’ve obeyed all these commandments,” the young man replied. “What else must I do?” 21 Jesus told him, “If you want to be perfect, go and sell all your possessions and give the money to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.” 22 But when the young man heard this, he went away sad, for he had many possessions. 23 Then Jesus said to his disciples, “I tell you the truth, it is very hard for a rich person to enter the Kingdom of Heaven. 24 I’ll say it again—it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich person to enter the Kingdom of God!” 25 The disciples were astounded. “Then who in the world can be saved?” they asked. 26 Jesus looked at them intently and said, “Humanly speaking, it is impossible. But with God everything is possible.” 27 Then Peter said to him, “We’ve given up everything to follow you. What will we get?”
28 Jesus replied, “I assure you that when the world is made new[i] and the Son of Man[j] sits upon his glorious throne, you who have been my followers will also sit on twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel. 29 And everyone who has given up houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or children or property, for my sake, will receive a hundred times as much in return and will inherit eternal life. 30 But many who are the greatest now will be least important then, and those who seem least important now will be the greatest then.” – Jesus was really after his heart. –

WHENEVER YOU READ THE WORD OF GOD IT MUST BE MIXED WITH FAITH OR YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE HIS BEST FOR YOU!

Father, we fast and pray today asking for your divine wisdom and protection for all who name the Name of Christ Jesus as our Lord and Savior. Bless us to recognize the victory that has already been won for us in His death (sacrifice on the Cross) burial, and resurrection (victory over death, hell, and every opposition we’ll ever face. Even over the curse of the law (poverty, sickness, and spiritual death). So we pray from a position of power and victory because Jesus has already won every victory for us. So we are not only his ambassadors on earth but we also have been given his righteosness. We have power over the devil and every demon (even false philosophical teachings – devilish doctrines -which permeate throughout the world), and the ability to get wealth. We also have God’s peace and joy. We could never count all the blessings he has bestowed on  us. Let’s be sure to thank him continually!
Set us free from worrying about our needs being met, to put you first, knowing that you will provide for our every need. Bless all to be saved and baptized in your Holy Spirit and with fire, Jesus, baptize all with fire. Father, we thank you and praise you for all of these things and all things, in the Precious, Holy, Awesome, and Unmatchable Name of Jesus, Amen!

Let’s fast and pray for the Word of God to go to forth throughout the the entire world so people will hear the gospel message and give their hearts to Jesus while there is still time.

God and His Word are eternal but the world as we know it will not continue forever.

It took Noah 120 years to build the ark. This is a sign of God’s patience. He gave people time to repent but unfortunately they would not turn from evil so they all perished in the flood. Only Noah and his family were saved because they believed (trusted) in God. ONCE AGAIN, GOD IS BEING PATIENT!
“The Lord isn’t really being slow about his promise, as some people think. No, he is being patient for your sake. He does not want anyone to be destroyed, but wants everyone to repent” (2 Peter 3:9 NLT).

Signs of the End and Promise of Jesus’ Return:

With all the evil going on in the today it is so important to know that God’s Word says, “As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man” (Matthew 24:37).

Psalm 119:89 
Your word, LORD, is eternal; it stands firm in the heavens

Matthew 24:35
Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will not pass away.

Mark 13:31
Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will not pass away.

John 6:68 
Simon Peter answered him, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life.

Matthew 24:14 
And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.

Father, as we fast from negative thinking and meditate on your Word which is truth. We choose to believe and take you at your Word. We know that the Bible is true and filled with your promises for us and all who trust in Christ. Please help us as we replace wrong (negative) thinking with your Word (Scripture verses). When we learn to continue in God’s Word daily, weekly, monthly, yearly our lives are transformed by his love and although we may face challenges we always experience victory in Christ.

Please pray and begin to quote out loud God’s Word as you combine prayer and fasting together believing God for life transformation.
AND REMEMBER THIS IS NOT JUST SOMETHING WE TRY. IT MUST BECOME A LIFESTYLE.

If someone who isn’t nice to you comes to mind remember that God Says for us to, “Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you” (Matthew 5:44).

Bible verses to combat negative thinking:

1. Ask God for His perspective

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths Proverbs 3:5-6 ESV.

Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.’ Jeremiah 33:3 NIV

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6 ESV

Search me, O God, and know my heart; try me and know my anxious thoughts. And see if there be any hurtful way in me, and lead me in the everlasting way. Psalm 139:23-24

If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him. James 1:5 ESV

2. Become familiar with God’s voice. 

The sheep hear his voice, and he calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. When he has brought out all his own, he goes before them, and the sheep follow him, for they know his voice. John 10:3-4 ESV

But he said, “Blessed rather are those who hear the word of God and keep it!” Luke 11:28 ESV

And he said, “He who has ears to hear, let him hear.” Mark 4:9 ESV / 64 helpful votes

Guard your steps when you go to the house of God. To draw near to listen is better than to offer the sacrifice of fools, for they do not know that they are doing evil. Ecclesiastes 5:1-20 ESV

My son, pay attention to what I say; turn your ear to my words. Do not let them out of your sight, keep them within your heart. Proverbs 4:20-21 | NIV

So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ. Romans 10:17 ESV

3. Memorize and meditate on scripture.

All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, 2 Timothy 3:16

Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.Psalm 119:105 ESV

For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart. Hebrews 4:12 ESV 

I have stored up your word in my heart, that I might not sin against you. Psalm 119:11 ESV

Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away. Matthew 24:35 ESV

Wherever you stand on the rapture whether preteribulation, mid or post we must know with certainty that Jesus is returning very soon. We must be about winning as many people to Christ as God gives us.

Although many people have already died and their fate (eternity) is sealed (once a person has left this world (died) we don’t pray for them any longer because they have made their decision and will spend eternity in either heaven, if they accepted Christ into their hearts, or hell if they rejected him) we still operate with the concept of emptying hell and filling heaven (in other words we want to get as many people as we can into heaven rather than see them go to hell)

“Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.
31 And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other. 32 Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh: 33 So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors. 34 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled. 35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away. 36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.

PRAY:
Father, we fast and pray for the lost that they would give their hearts to Jesus while there is still time.

Pray for every person that comes into your thoughts today to be saved and be in the center of God’s will for their lives.

If they are lost pray for them to be saved and in the center of God’s will.

If they are already saved pray for them to be in the center of God’s will (spirit, soul, body, emotionally, financially, materially and in every other way.

WHO CAN ACCURATELY EXPLAIN OR DESCRIBE THIS BEAUTIFUL HOLY CONCOCTION, AS IT WERE, OF THE FATHER, THE SON, AND THE HOLY SPIRIT UNLESS IT BE REVEALED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT? It is only by revelation from God mixed with faith in God (See Hebrews 11:6) and
“Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear” (Hebrews 11:3). Also, it is by revelation that we recognize the real Jesus.
“When Jesus came into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying, Whom do men say that I the Son of man am? 14 And they said, Some say that thou art John the Baptist: some, Elias; and others, Jeremias, or one of the prophets. 15 He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am? 16 And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God. 17 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven” (Matthew 16:13-17).

PRAY:
Father, we understand that a person can only come to Jesus if you draw them (See John 6:44) and Jesus, that a person can only come through you to get to the Father (See John 14:6). Dear God, we also understand that you move by your Spirit (YHWH – Yahweh;
“Yahweh, name for the God of the Israelites, representing the biblical pronunciation of “YHWH,” the Hebrew name revealed to Moses in the book of Exodus. The name YHWH, consisting of the sequence of consonants Yod, Heh, Waw, and Heh, is known as the tetragrammaton.”

STUDY: “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. 2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters” Genesis 1:1-2 King James Version). Here you see the Spirit of God (Holy Spirit).

Please read verses 3 through 25 to how the Father and the Son by the Holy Spirit created everything else first before creating Adam and Eve in verses 26 and 27.
“And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them” (Genesis 1:26 – 27).

Jesus, just as you are the “Light of the World” you have made we your followers to be the ‘light of the world.’

We fast and pray that you may sanctify us more to yourself that we may reflect more of who you are to the people of this world, that you may be glorified, and they will accept you (Jesus) into their hearts while there is still time.

SANCTIFY:
Disconnect from sin: To live a sanctified life, you must disconnect from sin. Sin will never go on its own. If you don’t rise up against it, it won’t go. You can wait from now till eternity for sin to go; but until you rise up against it, it won’t. This is because it is determined to destroy your destiny.

What Does “Light of the World” Mean in the Bible?

In Jesus Christ’s “Sermon on the Mount,” he first preaches to His followers the Beatitudes, of who shall be blessed by God, and then of salt and light. Here Christ tells them “You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden…let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.” (Matthew 5:14-16)

Light of the World in Scripture

“You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot. You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.” (Matthew 5:13-16)
We are called to be the salt and light in the world. (Much of this info found on the internet)

We ask that you would intervene even further to protect Ukraine from this evil attack  coming from Russia.

Please let the Word of God be preached and taught all over the world giving everyone the opportunity to either accept or reject Jesus. Please bless them to accept him into their hearts.

The Bible declares that, “This gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come” (Matthew 24:14).

Please stay in constant prayer. The time for the world as we know will soon end. Jesus ‘ return is sooner than people think.

“Psalm 2
1 Why are the nations so angry?
    Why do they waste their time with futile plans?
2 The kings of the earth prepare for battle;
    the rulers plot together
against the Lord
    and against his anointed one.
3 “Let us break their chains,” they cry,

    The Lord scoffs at them.
5 Then in anger he rebukes them,

    in Jerusalem,[a] on my holy mountain.”

LUKE 10:1-20
1 The Lord now chose seventy-two* other disciples and sent them ahead in pairs to all the towns and places he planned to visit. 2 These were his instructions to them: “The harvest is great, but the workers are few. So pray to the Lord who is in charge of the harvest; ask him to send more workers into his fields.
3 Now go, and remember that I am sending you out as lambs among wolves. 4 Don’t take any money with you, nor a traveler’s bag, nor an extra pair of sandals. And don’t stop to greet anyone on the road.
5 “Whenever you enter someone’s home, first say, `May God’s peace be on this house.’ 6 If those who live there are peaceful, the blessing will stand; if they are not, the blessing will return to you. 7 Don’t move around from home to home. Stay in one place, eating and drinking what they provide. Don’t hesitate to accept hospitality, because those who work deserve their pay. 8 “If you enter a town and it welcomes you, eat whatever is set before you.B9 Heal the sick, and tell them, `The Kingdom of God is near you now.’ 10 But if a town refuses to welcome you, go out into its streets and say, 11 `We wipe even the dust of your town from our feet to show that we have abandoned you to your fate. And know this—the Kingdom of God is near!’ 12 I assure you, even wicked Sodom will be better off than such a town on judgment day. 13 “What sorrow awaits you, Korazin and Bethsaida! For if the miracles I did in you had been done in wicked Tyre and Sidon, their people would have repented of their sins long ago, clothing themselves in burlap and throwing ashes on their heads to show their remorse. 14 Yes, Tyre and Sidon will be better off on judgment day than you.
15 And you people of Capernaum, will you be honored in heaven? No, you will go down to the place of the dead.*” 16 Then he said to the disciples, “Anyone who accepts your message is also accepting me. And anyone who rejects you is rejecting me. And anyone who rejects me is rejecting God, who sent me.” 17 When the seventy-two disciples returned, they joyfully reported to him, “Lord, even the demons obey us when we use your name!”
18 “Yes,” he told them, “I saw Satan fall from heaven like lightning! 19 Look, I have given you authority over all the power of the enemy, and you can walk among snakes and scorpions and crush them. Nothing will injure you. 20 But don’t rejoice because evil spirits obey you; rejoice because your names are registered in heaven.”

THE SNAKES AND SCORPIONS REFERS TO DEMONIC POWERS

Jesus sent his disciples out to win souls into the Kingdom of God and he has commissioned each of us to do the same. Signs and wonders will follow us as we do the same.

More than anything I want to win souls for and to Christ bringing them into God’s Kingdom. Think about it. “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life” (John 3:16). It is not only the greatest love story ever told but the greatest gift ever given. The greatest miracle is a person receiving salvation. And what a delight it is that has placed the this responsibility into the hands of his children to share the gospel message with those who are lost. That this greatest of all privileges has been given to the Church of Jesus Christ to be used of God to bring as as are willing into his kingdom.

We pray oh God use us, make us vessels of your love. Use us to win the list to Christ. Help us to bring the light of Jesus to a list and dying world that they may escape he’ll and inherit heaven.

“Then God said, “Let us make human beings in our image, to be like us. They will reign over the fish in the sea, the birds in the sky, the livestock, all the wild animals on the earth, and the small animals that scurry along theground”
(Genesis 1:26). PLEASE NOTICE THAT GOD SAID, “US.”

Let’s fast and pray that God gives us a better understanding of who He is (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit).

– – – Genesis 4:26 states, “At that time, people began to call on the name of the LORD [YHWH]” (NIV).  Why is that verse so significant to Genesis? Throughout the English version of the Old Testament, whenever we find the capital letters L-O-R-D, we know that is not an accurate translation of the Hebrew texts. In the actual texts, the name of the One worshiped is not “Lord,” but “YHWH.” These Hebrew letters, Y-H-W-H, are the holy name of God. But again, what does this name mean? When a voice spoke to Moses from the burning bush and called him to go to the land of Egypt, he wanted to know what to tell the people if they asked what the name of the One who sent him was, the One who instructed him to do those things. God replied, “I AM WHO I AM. This is what you are to say to the Israelites: ‘I AM has sent me to you’ ” (Exodus 3:13 NIV).

Father, we fast, pray, and repent of our sins. Please cleanse us from all unrighteousness. Bless us to please you in all that we think, say, and do, in Jesus’ Name, we pray.

When people truly receive Christ into their hearts there is a life forming transformation that takes place. A real change of heart and mind. We become new people. We repent and Jesus (God) comes to live in our hearts along with the Father and the Holy Spirit. To repent means metanoia
“Metanoia is used to refer to the change of mind which is brought about in repentance. Repentance is necessary and valuable because it brings about change of mind or metanoia. This change of mind will make the changed person hate sin and love God. The two terms (repentance and metanoia) are often used interchangeably.” This does not mean that we become perfect, certainly not in ourselves. But there is real change that takes place in our lives. We are longer dominated by our sin nature which includes, “sexual immorality, impurity, lustful pleasures, … anger, selfish ambition, dissension, division, envy, drunkenness, wild parties,” But now we are led by the Holy Spirit who produces, “love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control,” in our lives (See Galatians 5).
Our language changes (we don’t use curse words) we don’t watch porn, etc.

1 John 3
New Living Translation
3 See how very much our Father loves us, for he calls us his children, and that is what we are! But the people who belong to this world don’t recognize that we are God’s children because they don’t know him. 2 Dear friends, we are already God’s children, but he has not yet shown us what we will be like when Christ appears. But we do know that we will be like him, for we will see him as he really is. 3 And all who have this eager expectation will keep themselves pure, just as he is pure.
4 Everyone who sins is breaking God’s law, for all sin is contrary to the law of God. 5 And you know that Jesus came to take away our sins, and there is no sin in him. 6 Anyone who continues to live in him will not sin. But anyone who keeps on sinning does not know him or understand who he is. 7 Dear children, don’t let anyone deceive you about this: When people do what is right, it shows that they are righteous, even as Christ is righteous. 8 But when people keep on sinning, it shows that they belong to the devil, who has been sinning since the beginning. But the Son of God came to destroy the works of the devil. 9 Those who have been born into God’s family do not make a practice of sinning, because God’s life[a] is in them. So they can’t keep on sinning, because they are children of God. 10 So now we can tell who are children of God and who are children of the devil. Anyone who does not live righteously and does not love other believers does not belong to God.”

Father, as we fast and pray today we ask as Paul asked, that you, ” Grant us the Spirit of revelation,” so that we may know you better and understand the depth, the width, height, enormity, and the magnitude, although no one can fullly understand or grasp all of who you are or even begin to scratch the surface of understanding your power, of what you did for us by sending Jesus to die on the Cross for our sins and the power you exerted by raising Him victorious over the devil, death, hell, and the grave. Help us to understand that you are, “Love,” and how special we are to you. Grant us deeper levels of gratitude that we may exhibit to others the same mercy you showed to us by sending Christ and the brand new mercies that you continue to give every single day.

Paul’s Prayer for Spiritual Wisdom

“Ever since I first heard of your strong faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for God’s people everywhere,[e] 16 I have not stopped thanking God for you. I pray for you constantly, 17 asking God, the glorious Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, to give you spiritual wisdom[f] and insight so that you might grow in your knowledge of God. 18 I pray that your hearts will be flooded with light so that you can understand the confident hope he has given to those he called—his holy people who are his rich and glorious inheritance.[g] 19 I also pray that you will understand the incredible greatness of God’s power for us who believe him. This is the same mighty power 20 that raised Christ from the dead and seated him in the place of honor at God’s right hand in the heavenly realms. 21 Now he is far above any ruler or authority or power or leader or anything else—not only in this world but also in the world to come. 22 God has put all things under the authority of Christ and has made him head over all things for the benefit of the church. 23 And the church is his body; it is made full and complete by Christ, who fills all things everywhere with himself” (Ephesians 1:15-23 NLT). https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Ephesians%201&version=NLT

FAST and pray for God’s wisdom for we who are truly his people to operate successfully in the world as it is today. And He will answer us!

CAUTION: The world as we know it today will not continue forever. God will bring an end to evil. Satan’s evil kingdom, the drugs, pornography, evil operations of all kinds will soon be destroyed forever!

While it is very concerning to see things unfolding as they are we must be aware that God’s Word (the Bible) warned us of such things in these last days. Whether it is war, children disrespecting parents, people calling good evil and what is evil they say is good, God warned of such things in His Word (the Bible). While there is much fear in the word we who are saved (God’s true children) should have joy because we know that 
the return of Jesus is closer than ever before. Until Jesus returns we are to be about our Father’s business, winning souls, studying and teaching His Word, paying our tithes, praying, etc.

Also, pray for Ukraine to have victory over Russia so they can remain a free country. Pray for both countries (all of their people) to give their hearts to Jesus. Pray this also for America and the whole world. Pray for the peace of Jerusalem. Pray for all leaders and people to give their hearts to Jesus while there is still time. Pray for God to have mercy on our enemies and for them to give their hearts to Jesus so they too will go to heaven, etc.

GOLIATH MOMENTS

GOLIATH MOMENTS
are those seemingly impossible situations that we all must face on this journey called life. And while we may not be able to fight them in our own strength we must realize that, “With God all things are possible” (Luke 1:37). Also, he’ll never leave us alone (See Hebrews 13:5).

We may never have to face a 9 to 11 foot giant who was trained from his youth to be a warrior like David, a mere shepherd boy did but we all face Goliath’s in our lives. It could be a new job, school, a broken relationship, training, moving to a new neighborhood, a big test,, and the list goes on …

David, with God’s help won that battle.

When Sarah, who was well beyond her years for childbearing, heard God say that she would give birth to a son she laughed in disbelief. But sure enough when Abraham was about 100 years old and she was 90 God allowed to know one another and Sarah became pregnant.

Once while facing impossible odds against oncoming vast armies King Jehoshaphat called for his people to fast and pray. As a result God gave them instructions on what to do which resulted in a great victory for them. Through a prophet God told him, “Listen, King Jehoshaphat and all who live in Judah and Jerusalem! This is what the Lord says to you: ‘Do not be afraid or discouraged because of this vast army. For the battle is not yours, but God’s (2 Chronicles 20:15 NIV). Instead of directing the people to get their weapons ready and to put the best warriors out in front,
“After consulting the people, Jehoshaphat appointed men to sing to the Lord and to praise him for the splendor of his holiness as they went out at the head of the army, saying: “Give thanks to the Lord, for his love endures forever.” 22 As they began to sing and praise, the Lord set ambushes against the men of Ammon and Moab and Mount Seir who were invading Judah, and they were defeated. 23 The Ammonites and Moabites rose up against the men from Mount Seir to destroy and annihilate them. After they finished slaughtering the men from Seir, they helped to destroy one another. 24 When the men of Judah came to the place that overlooks the desert and looked toward the vast army, they saw only dead bodies lying on the ground; no one had escaped. 25 So Jehoshaphat and his men went to carry off their plunder, and they found among them a great amount of equipment and clothing and also articles of value—more than they could take away. There was so much plunder that it took three days to collect it” (2 Chronicles 20:15-25).

Let’s fast and pray for God to give us victory over whatever it is that we’re facing. Write down your list and begin asking him to give you victory regarding each thing (GOLIATH) you are facing right now.
And sing, “Give thanks to the Lord, for his love endures forever” throughout the course of the day and beyond if need be. Let this become a practice for life. Let’s
trust God and see him give us the victories we desire.

“El-Shaddai, God had revealed himself as Almighty God who could do anything he promised to do. But now as Yahweh, God was revealing himself as the covenant-keeping God who was vowing to be God Almighty on behalf of his people Israel.

When El-Shaddai Makes Himself Known as Yahweh

When El-Shaddai makes himself known as Yahweh, notice what happens:

He hears the groaning of his people (Ex. 6:5)

He remembers is covenant (Ex. 6:5)

He vows to bring his people out, to deliver them, and to redeem them with an outstretched arm and with great acts of judgment

He promises to “take” (marital language) Israel as his people, and to be their God (Ex. 6:7)

He promises to bring them into the land he promised to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob (Ex. 6:8)

As El-Shaddai, he is capable of doing all these things, but there is no guarantee that he will. But as Yahweh, God binds himself to his people, and he binds his people to himself. He is their God, and they are his people. God will move heaven and earth to deliver his people and bring them into their rest.

So although the people of Israel cannot listen to Moses when he tells him what Yahweh has spoken (Ex. 6:9), Yahweh nevertheless reiterates his charge to Moses to tell Pharaoh to let his people go. Yahweh hasn’t lost his power or his resolve to rescue his people. Israel’s redemption is undoubtedly at hand.

How do they know this? Because “I am Yahweh” (Ex. 6:2).

And so in the New Covenant, we also know that Yahweh will undoubtedly be God Almighty for me. In fact, by sending his Son Jesus Christ to die in my place, he has already bound himself covenantally to me because he is Yahweh.

So the difference between El-Shaddai and Yahweh is simple: As El-Shaddai, God can do all things. As Yahweh, God promises to do all things through Christ for me.”  by Jacob D. Gerber | Oct 13, 2014
