Diligently Seeking God…

20 Sep

kg

“Now it shall come to pass, if you diligently obey the voice of the LORD your God, to observe carefully all His commandments which I command you today, that the LORD your God will set you high above all nations of the earth. Deuteronomy 28:1.

 
In a time when it is more socially acceptable to be the commander of your own destiny, we forget the God of the Bible. Today’s society is consistently placing the power and ability all in your hands to create when in actuality everything moves by way of the Holy Spirit of God. This is why we need to diligently strive to know the Lord’s will. God’s will is more than just a conscience feeling that we get but divine instruction. The way to receive that instruction is to be constantly in contact with Him. This works the same way as a light bulb. A bulb cannot produce light on its own but must be connected to a lamp for power. The most powerful way to remain in contact with God is through prayer.

Prayer is our own personal time to talk with the Father. This moment we use to ask for guidance, strength and the ability to overcome the enemy. It is through prayer that we gain confidence in our faith and find peace in our trials. Matthew 7:7-11 reads, “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. Or what man is there among you who, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will he give him a serpent? If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him!

Another example of staying connected to the divine power of God is through reading His word, the Holy Bible. 2 Timothy 3:16 states, “All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.” It is through reading the Bible we know how to pray the will of our Father. A true fact is that we can always tell what the Lord is going to do, based on what He has already done. So simply by reading we know exactly what to ask for in prayer. I urge everyone to take a few minutes a day to read a couple of chapters of the Bible, or if reading cannot be fitted into your daily schedule listen to an audio Bible. It is important to diligently seek the will of God to not only bless ourselves but others, Shalom…

Vile Men…

4 Feb

200px-Aleister_Crowley_in_Hat

“The wicked prowl on every side, when vileness is exalted among the sons of men,” Psalms 12:8

The Holy Bible speaks at times on the environment of social climates. In the same way that Believer’s allow the Holy Spirit to move through them and shed light onto the world, the unsaved do the same. Those individuals who have a platform (athletes, musicians, politicians) are able to influence a society’s way of thinking for the better or worse. Many people in popular culture inadvertently become enabler’s.

An Enabler is defined as someone who help’s another achieve a desired or undesirable goal. For example a popular celebrity can either be a positive role model by being virtuous and respectable person and setting an example for those looking up to him or her. Or in a more negative effect, a person of notoriety can be a liar, cheater or worse. Many weak minded individuals will use this celebrity’s status as a way to pardon their own sinful desires and way of life. A great popular phrase is, “Whatever our leaders do in moderation, the people will do in excess.”

In this world we live in, a person of great fame and wealth, who is also a very sinful person, can become a enabler of bad intentions. A person’s bad characteristic presents these same abilities to the general public as a way to be successful in life. An example can be a politician who is caught in a sex scandal who can give someone a false belief that cheating on a spouse is okay, after all they did it and they are successful. Or, a reality t.v. star who is ungodly and filled with lust and foul language will give credence to our youth in how to act due to their celebrity. A prime example of this is in the man Victor Crowley pictured above. Crowley was a new age occultist and mystic who lived 1875-1947. Aleister Crowley was very Anti-Christ in his beliefs and believed in doing away with Christianity and issue in a new age of Satanic Humanistic belief’s authoring “The Book of the Law.” The book was written by Crowley while in a trance by a demonic spirit that he named “Aiwass.” The text was said to usher in an age of free thinker’s under the adage “Do as thou wilt, shall be the law of the land.”

Aleister Crowley became popular among many musicians such as the Beatles and Michael Jackson. Influencing them to indoctrinate other’s with his teachings by way of their music, helping to usher in the sexual revolution, homosexuality and drug use of the 60s and 70s. I pray in this time, that we as Believer’s in the Cross of Christ set forth and be a prime example of the Lord in the world today. Enabling those who are undecided to believe in Christ saving power, Shalom…

Teenage Pregnancy…

31 Dec

Proverbs 22:6, “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.”

I recently was disturbed to see on the news the enemy’s attack on the youth of America, in the form of teenage pregnancy. In a time when many parents are preoccupied with putting food on the table with a failing economy, this leaves little or no time for supervision of our young people. This gives way many evil spirits the go ahead to try and corrupt impressionable children especially those who do not have much Faith in YHVH Father God. Even in a time when we lack so much financially, we must never loose sight of our greatest resource as a people which is our children the future generation! It’s very important to teach and educate our youth on the Biblical principal’s that helped mold such a great nation as the United States, as well as sex education which is ordained within the confines of marriage as read in 1 Corinthians 7:2, “Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband.” Sexual immorality becomes a detestable act which destroy’s the youth of a nation as well as the generation coming behind hurting the original plan of God by having one man and woman in covenant (marriage) with the Father. I pray that all parents, married and single set aside the time to talk to our young teens on sex and the consequences that it can lead to not only a unwanted pregnancy but also death. Stand and educate our youth, and save a child from a lost of youth and preservation of innocence. Shalom…

Keeping Enduring Faith in the Word of God…

31 Dec

3005239

JOB 1:21, “And said, Naked came I out of my mother’s womb, and naked shall I return thither: the LORD gave, and the LORD hath taken away; blessed be the name of the LORD.”

In the recent time of events of the last few years, since the attacks of Sept 11, it has become of dire need for every Christian to continue to stay faithful unto the Word of God, the Holy Bible. With the economy in constant decline, unenemployment on the rise, and the evaporation of middle class America our Christian Faith is always being tested by the Demonic influence that is in this world. As Job 1:21, states Job had lost everything that He loved dear in the span of one day, as read in verses 13-19 of the same chapter, “And there was a day when his sons and his daughters were eating and drinking wine in their eldest brother’s house: And there came a messenger unto Job, and said, The oxen were plowing, and the asses feeding beside them: And the Sabeans fell upon them, and took them away; yea, they have slain the servants with the edge of the sword; and I only am escaped alone to tell thee. While he was yet speaking, there came also another, and said, The fire of God is fallen from heaven, and hath burned up the sheep, and the servants, and consumed them; and I only am escaped alone to tell thee. While he was yet speaking, there came also another, and said, The Chaldeans made out three bands, and fell upon the camels, and have carried them away, yea, and slain the servants with the edge of the sword; and I only am escaped alone to tell thee. While he was yet speaking, there came also another, and said, Thy sons and thy daughters were eating and drinking wine in their eldest brother’s house: And, behold, there came a great wind from the wilderness, and smote the four corners of the house, and it fell upon the young men, and they are dead; and I only am escaped alone to tell thee.” Job state of affairs here, is true of what many Americans are going through right now. This system of the world is slowly moving towards the birth of a New World Order, that no longer adhere’s to the Word of God, but the Lord is seperating all who believe from it and back unto the scriptures in which we orignally as a Nation once held dear to our hearts. We as Believer’s must be more Spiritually minded of the omnipresent God who is at work in the unseen Spirit Realm, and take heed to His perfect will for our live’s that never was based on this world’s economy or social system. This is done by reading His Word, The Holy Bible daily and seeking Jehovah in Spirit and Truth (the renewing of our minds (Spirit) and unto the truth (reading and obeying the scriptures.) Faith in the Cross of Yeshua (Jesus) produces the real social and economic system that God truly wants for His children. Philippians 4:19, “But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” Shalom…

The Illuminati influence in modern culture…

31 Dec

9750926

Ephesians 6:12, “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”

The term Illuminati or “illuminated ones,” refers to a secret society that was founded by Adam Weishaupt on 1 May 1776. The group mainly comprised of the rich and powerful individuals of German descent were advocates for freethought, and secularism, who believed science, logic, and reason were the only basis of any true reason in the world. The Illuminati believed that man should have His own free choice without the influence of religion, authority, or tradition.

In short the Illuminated ones were early Humanist who believed that man is in charge of His own destiny, and can in return become God by looking within one’s self and finding Him. In 1785, the secret society was infiltrated and, and disbanded by government agents on orders of Charles Theodore, Elector of Bavaria to put and end to social groups who secretly were plotting to overthrow the Bavarian Monarch and Roman Catholicism. The Illuminati like all other secular and non-Christ centered beliefs operate under the Spiritual guidance of Fallen Angels and Demon Spirits. Who like Satan when He was in Heaven tried to remove God as the source of worship and ascend into the Heavenly Father’s thrown.

These Demon Spirits were originally the Nephilim of Genesis 6:4, “There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.” These Giants (Nephilim) much like Satan seek to be worshipped by man as they once were before the flood of Genesis, which God sent to destroy the evil works of these Fallen Angels and to begin His creation anew with Noah who was “perfect in His generations,” due to the fact that He nor His family fornicated with these unholy Angels. After the flood receded the Nephilim Spirits returned to the Earth as disembodied Spirits due to the fact that they were half Human and half Angel, neither assigned to Heaven or Hell at that time. They began their corruption again by using men and women who would open themselves up to be inhabited by them which brought about Nimrod and the Tower of Babel in Genesis 10:8-12.

These Spirits rome about possesing those in great authority in order to receive worship and bring about the one world government system in which the Anti-Christ will rule over. This new world order will actually be the revived Roman Empire which the Illuminati will bring about in the end time. The Illuminati never truly disappeared after being infiltrated but rather went underground to mastermind how to push their beliefs and agenda onto the mases of the world. These extremely rich and powerful men re-emerged as political figures such as the Builderberg group, the Rockafeller’s, the World Banking System and Trilateral Commision.

Through their belief in Humanism the Illuminati opened themselves up to be inhabited either knowingly or unknowingly by the Demon Spirits of the Nephilim who were more than willing to dwell in the body of a rich powerful individual and receive worship like in the days before the flood. The Illuminati use their influence over the world to promote, Humanist ideas, homosexuality, abortion, and trends in modern culture which are in fact gateways into having the masses demonically possessed by unsuspecting persons. Their man objective is to pave the way for the Anti-Christ to arrive on the world secene, but must first turn the World away from Christ and onto the sin nature of man for corruption of their souls. So how can you spot the Illuminati efforts in our modern world which will persuade many into accepting a false Christ? Please watch and listen to the youtube video below, and have the Holy Spirit guide you into the discernment of the Satanic infiltration in our society. Shalom…

The Indoctrination of Homosexual Sin…

31 Dec

3417307

Leviticus 18:22, “Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.”

The dictionary defines indoctrination as, to instruct in a doctrine, principle, ideology. to imbue with a specific partisan or biased belief or point of view. It is often distinguished from education by the fact that the indoctrinated person is expected not to question or critically examine the doctrine they have learned. Over the course of the past few years, I really began to take notice of the more prevelant presence of Homosexuals in our popular culture. It seemed that every new t.v. show, movie, actor, music artist our fashion statement promoted the gay agenda in our society.

Even Churches began to promote this by having gay music directors and guest speakers at Churches across America. I prayed to the Lord and asked for knowledge of this matter by way of His Holy Spirit, what I received was Satan’s agenda to impart Homosexual as a way of life in our current society, by way of various media outlets. Even wealthy Homosexuals are begining to fund politicians campaigns who are pro same-sex marriage by way of new laws, (please click the following link for more on this http://www.citizenlink.org/content/A000007580.cfm)

This indoctrination is achieved through the works of evil ministering spirits as in Ephesians 2:2-3 reads, “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. All of us also lived among them at one time, gratifying the cravings of our sinful nature and following its desires and thoughts. Like the rest, we were by nature objects of wrath.”

The best way to overcome being persuade to except that to what is contrary to the Word of God is to monitor what you entertain as a Christian believer. Anything that can lead you out of the Grace of God should be omitted out of your life for fear of God and the acceptance of evil. Also be weary of what your young children are watching, doing and friends that they may have, knowing that the enemy is out to steal, kill and destroy.

Always be mindful that we are to be witness of the Lord Jesus Christ, not judging the world by which they live in but telling them of the Cross of Christ to which all things are made right in the eyes of God. Acts 2:37 states, “Now when they heard this, they were cut to the heart, and said to Peter and the rest of the apostles, “Men and brethren, what shall we do?” We adhere to the to this by living for Christ and only Christ, 1 Corinthians 2:2, For I determined not to know anything among you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified. Amen! (If you know of anyone who needs deliverance from Homosexuality click on the following link (http://www.witnessfortheworld.org/sos.html) to gain insight from Pastor DL Foster a delivered homosexual Himself on the act of overcoming this sin. Be blessed.

Acts 2:17-18, “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.”

In my journey of searching for the right Church to worship with, I often came across some who believed women had no right to serve the Body of Christ from behind the pulpit. Many Churches still to this day promote the idea of women being serveants unto their Husbands and remain silent during service as stated by the Apostle Paul in His letter to the Corinthian Church. In 1 Corinthian 14:34-35 which states, “Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience as also saith the law. And if they will learn any thing, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a shame for women to speak in the church.” What many fail to realize about this scripture is that it addressed the social climate of that part of the world at that time. Back then women were not encouraged to be educated or to be free of mind. Men and Women did’nt even sit next to each other in Church services then, so when the Apostle was teaching, they would try to ask their Husbands sitting away from them, for the meaning behind what was being taught in turn interrupting the service by doing so. So to do away with this confusion Paul asked the women to be quite, and wait and ask their Husbands when they got home for the meaning of the message being preached. Sadly Satan has taken this scripture and used it for ungodly men to place our women into bondage and servitude unto them over the generations. Let us not forget that women were the first to preach the good news of the risen Christ in Luke 24: 6-9, “He is not here, but is risen: remember how he spake unto you when he was yet in Galilee, Saying, The Son of man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again. And they remembered his words, And returned from the sepulchre, and told all these things unto the eleven, and to all the rest.” Remember their is only one stepping stool for all to use in this life and that is the Devil, and not our women! They are granted the same right to speak, teach, sing, and praise God for the Salvation that is in Jesus that all flesh should adhere to…Amen!

The Sin of Pro-Choice…

31 Dec

9862157

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

With the way that the world is going the act of sinning is not only being more and more accepted by the entire population, but also is being promoted as the right way to live our lives. Their seems to be more actions and excuses for individuals who do not wish to take the responsibility of being a parent or and adult in the decisions that they make with their lives and with their bodies, with abortions being one.

I remember back during the election of 2008, one of the great debates between each political party was of being Pro-Choice (allowing everyone the right to make the decision to have a abortion or not) or of being Pro-Life (the outlawing of abortion rights) I was thinking just who gave us this right to choose who gets to live and who does not? Especially in the taking of a innocent life who has not even had the chance to pled its case to the world. Many Doctors argue that the actual life of a fetus does not really begin until after the first few months of conception but as Jeremiah 1:5 states, God may argue that case against the knowledge of man. In the decision of being Pro-Choice we are wrong! We are wrong in believing that we have that authority to decide for ourselves when and under which circumstances we can bring a child into this world. Several others Biblical scriptures back up this belief as in Psalm 51:5,” For I was born a sinner—yes, from the moment my mother conceived me.”

The Word of God says life begins at the moment of conception and not months later as some would say, regardless of what the natural world may tell us we live our lives according to the Spirit, knowing that all things have purpose and meaning for our lives. I did some research on this topic and found out that the main reason behind the choice to abort a unwanted pregnancy, is not because of a rape which only accounts for less than 1% of all abortions but rather bad judgement. Many abortions occur because people feel that they are not ready finacially, mentally or just made a bad decision one night. So because we don’t want to live with the consequences, we decide to take the life of a innocent child. I apologize for being blunt but that is exactly what abortion is. The most responsible action to take is being aware of the end results of our actions. If you plan to have pre-marital sex use condoms or contraceptions before making a decision that will result in making another terrible one in a few months. Every life is precious unto the Lord. The creation of a life gives God great pride because we operate as Him in doing so. When we were made in His image back in the book of Genesis, God made us creators also just like Him.

In abortion we pollute that gift in which God ordained us to walk in, and warp it into something very destructive. This was done also in the past in the book of Psalm 106:37-38, reads “They even sacrificed their sons and their daughters to the demons. They shed innocent blood, the blood of their sons and daughters. By sacrificing them to the idols of Canaan, they polluted the land with murder.” This is speaking of when Israel worshiped the false god Ba’al, and to pay homage to Him destroyed the very children that they conceived for His “blessings.” Also Deuteronomy 27:25 reads, “Cursed is anyone who accepts payment to kill an innocent person.’And all the people will reply, Amen.” Their are many many more arguements to be had on just why Pro-Choice is against the will of God. I ask that we all take a look into the world of God and just see how wonderful Life is if we only submit unto His will. The next time the debate is raging just remember John 10:10, “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” Stay Blessed!

Life does not consist of and Abundance of Things…

21 Nov

7086517

Luke 12:15-21, “And He said to them, “Take heed and beware of covetousness,a for one’s life does not consist in the abundance of the things he possesses.” Then He spoke a parable to them, saying: “The ground of a certain rich man yielded plentifully. And he thought within himself, saying, ‘What shall I do, since I have no room to store my crops?’ So he said, ‘I will do this: I will pull down my barns and build greater, and there I will store all my crops and my goods. And I will say to my soul, “Soul, you have many goods laid up for many years; take your ease; eat, drink, and be merry.”’ But God said to him, ‘Fool! This night your soul will be required of you; then whose will those things be which you have provided? ‘ “So is he who lays up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.”

Jesus Christ in this passage is speaking on the vain attempts by man, who place success over first seeking the Kingdom of God. Christ spoke out against this because it distracts from our Spiritual walk with Him, and the relying on God for the things that we need instead of our own doing. Matthew 6:33 states, “Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.” This is in no way meant that every Christian should not strive for the most out of there lives, or to achieve success but in all keep the Lord and the truth of the Cross at the center of all! Christ died and rose again so that we could have life and have it more abundantly, John 10:10. In all that we do first seek the Lord, then go and conquer giants all in the name of Jesus Christ! So that even as we struggle to make ends meet in a lackluster economy, we will in turn still be ready to meet our Father in Heaven. Shalom…

The Exploitation of Sexual Sin in Pop Culture…

31 Oct

3625606

2 Peter 2:18 (NLT), They brag about themselves with empty, foolish boasting. With an appeal to twisted sexual desires, they lure back into sin those who have barely escaped from a lifestyle of deception.

As apart of American Society we are constantly being bombarded by images from t.v. commercials, pop-ups on websites, music, movies, and magazines. The introduction of these images into Our subconcious mind is meant to awaken our conscience self to things we may or may not need in our lives. One of the main marketing tools many corporations use is sex in order to sell and market a product or idea to the public at large.

Why sex? It is the most used weapon by the enemy to lure believers and non believers away from the truth of the Lord Jesus Christ. While sex between a man and a woman is definately a beautiful thing within the Covenant of Marriage, it is when taken out of this context when many will fall into the desires of sexual sin. In this aspect sex is and enabler to the sin nature that dwells within all of Mankind. The definition of a enabler is (to supply with the means, knowledge, or opportunity to make able.)

It just so happened when Satan designed the plan to destroy the morality of ones thinking, along with the innocence of the Youth of America , He used sex to do so by projecting images into Our subconcious minds through various forms of entertainment. Movies like “Sex in the City,” “40 Year old Virgin,” and “Wedding Crashers,” all promote sex before marriage and dilute our way of thinking and make many weak to the sin nature that Man inherited from the Adam during “The Fall.”

These movies play on the fact that sex is good and makes everyone happy, and that their is no consequence for acting outside the law of God. While the pleasure is glorified the repercussions are not. The heartache, of giving yourself to someone who only wants you for your body, the STDs, broken homes, and failed marriages that were based off of sex, are never displayed as the end result of indulging in sexual pleasure. The same can be said for the Youth of America, who dance and glorify music artist who are sexually perverse in their own right, to make money and exploit women all for self gain. This in return effects Our youth by unplanned pregnancies, abortions, and depression, because children cannot handle having to make adult decisions at such a young age. Sexual enablers are all around Us, that is why Colossians 2:8 states, “See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the basic principles of this world rather than on Christ.”

We do this by keeping Our minds focused on the Word of God (Bible), and watch just what We put in Our Spirit The Holy Bible states in Roman 12:2 (NLT), “Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.” Shalom…
