When God’s People Had No Weapons

There was a time when God’s people had no weapons. It was a terrible time for the Hebrews. The Philistines, after the victory over the sons of Eli, had become masters of the land. Their government policy was to kill the Smiths and totally disarm the people of God. A Smith was one that made agricultural’ tools and weapons such as swords and spears. In other words, the people had no way to defend themselves from Philistine killers and thieves that came every year to harass, plunder, and steal the harvest from the hard working people of God.

Scripture says, “Now there was no smith found throughout all the land of Israel: for the Philistines said, Lest the Hebrews make them swords or spears: But all the Israelites went down to the Philistines, to sharpen every man his share, and his coulter, and his axe, and his mattock. Yet they had a file for the mattocks, and for the coulters, and for the forks, and for the axes, and to sharpen the goads. So it came to pass in the day of battle, that there was neither sword nor spear found in the hand of any of the people that were with Saul and Jonathan: but with Saul and with Jonathan his son was there found” (1 Samuel 13:19-22).

Some think disarming good law abiding citizens from their ability to protect themselves is a good idea. Even some that swear an oath to uphold the US Constitution (which includes the Second Amendment) get elected in office only to undermine the US Constitution. They wrongly imply that laws protect you from bodily harm. That law enforcement can keep you safe. (An unfair expectation of them.) But what happens when the cops are nowhere in sight? What happens when the licensed security guard is on lunch break? What happens when a madman, or a group of psychopaths, intent on killing, are the only ones that have weapons? What happens when citizens find themselves in the middle of a shootout like those fourteen people killed and 22 injured in San Bernardino, California by the husband and wife team of radical Islamic’ cowards? How about those shopping at Walmart and taken hostage in Amarillo when a Muslim immigrant from Iran took them hostage?

Every time there is a mass shooting, such as the demonic murder of 49 people and 53 wounded by another radical Islamic’ terrorist in Orlando, Florida at a gay bar, there is a call for gun control.  Surely, we are wise enough to understand that these murderers don’t care about gun free zones, concealed carry permits, political correctness, law enforcement, or breaking laws. (ISIS is urging attacks at theaters, hospitals, and amusement parks.) Let’s get this clear, these people are cold-blooded killers who would love nothing more than to see you defenseless.

To disarm those peaceful citizens that choose their God-given right to defend themselves and others doesn’t seem to fit the pattern of good old fashion common sense.  George Washington said, “A free people ought to be armed.” As written above, “So it came to pass in the day of battle, that there was neither sword nor spear found in the hand of any of the people.” Let’s not let that happen in the USA. No one knows if a day of battle might come. Let’s pray it never does, but if it does be prepared.

Nightclub Horrific Attack On Gays: A Christian Response

A Christian Response: On Sunday morning, American citizens were gunned down by a demon possessed radical Islamist terrorist. The terrorist was Omar Mateen, the son of a Muslim immigrant from Afghanistan. His target was a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida. (Islam teaches that homosexuality is to be punished by death.) This was the worst terrorist attack on our country since 9/11.

Our prayers go out to the family members that are grieving and those in the hospital recovering from their injuries. We pray for the Comforter, the Holy Spirit, to minister to them in their hour of need. This is a time when every Christian should show forth the love of God with heartfelt prayers. No matter how you feel about the sin of homosexuality, these were fellow Americans cut down by a madman.

Radical Islam promotes hate for women, gays, Jews, Christians and all Americans. And, they are willing to kill to advance their demonic religious ideology. Look how many people just one man can kill and injure. (Mateen killed 50 and wounded 53 others.) Church, America, it’s time to armor up. This means both naturally (Constitutional carry) and spiritually. You have the God given right and Constitutional right to protect yourselves and family from murderers if you so choose. The FBI cannot protect you, Homeland Security cannot protect you, and Law Enforcement cannot protect you. We must protect ourselves and each other. Radical Islam has declared war on us and we can’t ignore it, we won’t ignore it.

“Put on the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil” (Ephesians 6:11).

All God Calls Holy Under Attack

All Christians are called to teach each generation the difference between the Holy and the profane (Ezekiel 44:23). Today, all which God calls holy is under attack. This is not the first time. In the Old Testament, God revealed to Jeremiah that His house was full of wicked prophets, priests, and corrupted ministers. These were those called by God to minister to the people on behalf of God. Surely this revelation grieved the man of God. Scripture says, “For both prophet and priest are profane; yea, in my house, have I found their wickedness, saith the Lord” (Jeremiah 23:11). It’s one thing to have godless politicians and celebrities promote immorality and quite another for wickedness to be spread from the pulpits of the Church.

The word profane means unclean, defiled, and corrupted. We see a measure of the same today. These prophets and priests crossed God’s holy threshold and entered the dark side of rebellion and sin. A threshold is a divider between two rooms. When you walk through your front door into the house, there is a metal threshold on the floor that separates the outside from the inside. There is a spiritual threshold that separates the Holy from the unholy. Ministers must stand as a light showing God’s people the way of truth. When one is profaned, however, they step across the threshold of holiness and enter the realm of the corrupted.

This Scripture teaches that some prophets and priests abandoned Holy Spirit led ministry and crossed the boundary from holy living into ministerial corruption. They compromised. Both prophets and priests were living in sin, but they didn’t quit their ministries instead they spread their corruption everywhere they went. Their polluted messages advanced a deceptive and unholy mixture of truth and lies. The result was apathy, decay, and idolatry. These ministers could no longer teach the difference between the Holy and the profane. We see this today. This is the environment the spirit of Jezebel, false messengers, and gospel merchandisers flourish. This is the climate God sent Jeremiah. As a Disciple of Christ, you may face the same but take courage. It’s not over yet. Scripture declares that Christ is returning for a glorious church one without spot or wrinkle. Don’t get discouraged, nothing is taking God by surprise. He knows what to do. Put Him first in your life, study His Word, build your house on the rock, and stay plugged into a strong Spirit-filled church.

Demonic Pagan Dedication of Swiss Gotthard Tunnel

Switzerland celebrated the opening of the world’s longest train tunnel, a 17-year project that cuts through the Alps and cost €11 billion to construct.

Their opening ceremony, sanctioned by their government, was full of witchcraft, homosexuality, and occult dedication. They spent €8 million to produce. (Millions wasted on a demonic celebration.)

What will come through this tunnel into their nation now?


 

Spiritual Discernment and Prophets

Spiritual discernment goes hand in hand with prophetic ministry. Prophets, similar to apostles, deal with spiritual order, patterns, and structure. They are foundational and minister into belief systems (Ephesians 2:20). A belief system is why a person believes what they believe. When a prophet (when walking in their prophetic gifting) enters a room or when someone stands in front them, for example, their spiritual discernment may activate and will discern if anything is out of order, needs correction, encouragement, or something else the Holy Spirit may reveal. That is the prophet’s revelation gifting manifesting within them.

Prophets are the most spiritually sensitive of all the five-fold apostolic ministry ascension gifts. So if there is anything out of order in the church or out of order in your life, they may pick it up in their spirit. (They may also discern demonic assignments, false teaching, or truth and error.)  It’s not suspicion or intuition they are discerning. Don’t get confused because suspicion and intuition come out of the soul through reasoning. Remember, you are a spirit, have a soul, and live in a body. Your spirit is the real you, it’s the part of you that was once dead in trespasses and sin, but now, because of the saving grace and the blood of Christ, you are a new creature old things passed away, behold all things become new (2 Corinthians 5:17).

Your soul is your mind, imagination, and emotions. Spiritual discernment is received into your spirit from the Holy Spirit. Suspicion is suspecting guilt, wrongs, or harms with little or no supporting evidence. The prophetic gifting has nothing to do with suspicion, intuition, or carnal imaginations but manifest out of one of the nine gifts of the Holy Spirit such as a word of wisdom, word of knowledge, or the discerning of spirits (1 Corinthians 12:7-11). That’s all for now.

A Kingdom Revolution

There are many kinds of wars. There are civil, religious, class and the highest of all, spiritual wars. Paul wrote, “For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds” (2 Corinthians 10:4). Strongholds are fortified defensive structures. These structures are fortified belief systems known as kingdoms. Christians are in a spiritual war for dominion, kingdom against kingdom, culture against culture, values against values, truth against lies, and light against darkness.

Christian values are being assaulted daily and must be upheld in every generation. Evil spirits attack these values by teaching. They have wiles, seductions, philosophies, beliefs, values, and worldviews. They pass these on to men that pass them on to others. When we pull back the curtain, we understand the true warfare is the battle against God fueled by the hatred of Satan. Nevertheless, we are more than conquers through Christ that strengthens us. Without Christ, none can be free and without His overcoming word the chains of tyranny could not be broken. Christ, however, is your source and we should never look to men as the staff of our hope but unto Christ as author and finisher of our faith.

The apostolic restoration of the Church of Christ is awakening to the responsibility of equipping and empowering every believer to join the battle for liberty. Christ has certain expectations of his followers. Not only is Christ your savior but he is also the one that sets standards for citizenship in His kingdom. Those standards are Kingdom principles that lead to liberty. As liberty appears, the Kingdom of God manifests. Liberty is freedom to choose. Liberty is the road to dominion.

Jesus said, “The time is fulfilled, and the Kingdom of heaven is at hand. Repent ye and believe the Gospel.” In this declaration, we discover Christ announcement of a Kingdom movement and launching of the greatest revolution of all time. You are part of that kingdom revolution. You are destined for victory.

Occult Prayer Walks And Labyrinths

New Age teachings are entering Christian churches in North America by introducing occult prayer walks such as Labyrinths. Labyrinths are pagan instruments used as occult gateways into the supernatural. Most think of a Labyrinth as a maze that’s easy to get lost in with winding paths and dead ends. A Labyrinth is different than a maze because it is a winding path. For the spiritually discerning the Labyrinth is nothing more than occult paganism masquerading itself as another form of Christian prayer. Read more here

Is Jezebel Spirit Mentoring You? Let’s Find Out.

The Jezebel spirit is one of the most dangerous spirits you will come into contact. If you are not careful, this spirit can damage or destroy your relationship with others, your marriage, and ministry. With the rise of social media such as Facebook, we see more and more Jezebel spirits building discipleship groups. The risk for you being ministered to by someone that has a Jezebel spirit is increasing.  The danger is not being able to recognize Jezebel’s characteristics and being lured into her circle of disciples. If you don’t understand how dangerous this spirit is, you need to do some study. The Jezebel spirit is a demonic spirit pretending to be concerned with your wellbeing. Don’t get deceived.  Read more here
