True Faith

Faith is more powerful than any Disease. Faith is more powerful than the tallest tidal wave, or any force of nature. Faith is more powerful than a thousand hydrogen bombs going off at once, one of which is more powerful than an atomic bomb. Only true faith is like this. It really is, and you must see it this way, or you won’t see Faith properly.

The Bible says God created the entire Universe by Faith. It’s how He’s going to create the next one. Faith is powerful stuff and you and I only need a drop of it. Jesus said you could move mountains with a mustard seed amount of Faith. Well if you’ve ever seen a mustard seed you could fit a dozen of them into most drops.

Now there is an element of Faith that is like a tool, and you need to use the right tool for the job. Meaning, if you need Healing then you have to Feed on the dozens of Scriptures that speak of and promise Healing, and so on – for every different need. Financial, physical, wisdom and insight, strength and strategies. The Bible covers all of it. The way to get healed is the same way you got saved, by Faith.

Your salvation is based on Scripture, these other Scriptures are for every one of us just as much as the ones that save are for us. People just haven’t been trained in them. The Bible itself tells us that we are to be Trained in and with the Scripture. You know who does that in the Body – Teachers. They are the ones God has Called to do it. I’m teaching you right now, that’s my part. Your part is to stay Teachable. Because the tendency of our flesh is to get offended, which makes us unteachable.

So we saw that there is an element of Faith that is like a tool, but there is more than that. Faith is also a Relationship. God is in the Faith that He gives us, just like He is in His Word. Don’t try to wrap your head around all that, listen in your spirit. That is the only way you will ever get Spiritual Things. Spiritual is not Intellectual, your spirit is above your Intellect. It is in your spirit that “you know all things“, right. That’s what the Bible says.

In your spirit is where you recognize Truth, that’s what that verse means. We read in some ancient Hebrew extrabiblical texts that the Devil took some things that God had showed the Archangels, and tried to use it apart from God and [by doing so] used it against God. Whether we believe that or not, that is exactly how most christians try to use what they call their faith – and it is a Failure. They try to use their faith without God and because it’s for their own purposes, they are using it against Him. Faith is not a cold selfish impersonal intellectual thing like that.

Modern believers use their faith like it’s some sort of control over God. Like they’re going to control Him into doing what they want. As though He is a genie that will grant them 3 wishes. Faith is not control, Faith is trust. You have to trust Him, and trust that He will do what He said. What did He say. If you don’t know you need to go find out or wait until He does say. It all starts with what He said.

We saw that Faith is also a relationship, and that God is in the Faith that He gives us. He comes with it. You cannot just take Faith and go do whatever you want with it. It is only to do what He tells you. You can’t just do it by faith unless He told you to do it. If He did not tell you, you won’t have Faith. You will just be pretending, and it won’t happen. Real Faith brings real results, fake faith brings no results. That’s why so many have no results. Faith doesn’t begin with Miracles, Faith begins with Hearing from God. That’s why you cannot separate Faith from being Led by the Spirit. His Word and His Spirit are the two main ways we Hear from God as Individuals.

Faith is our assignment from God and He will not do it for us. If our faith fails we will not make it to Heaven. Grace is an assignment God has given Himself, and we cannot give ourself grace for Him. Not a single person is in Hell because of a lack of grace. They either lacked the faith to get saved or had their own personal faith in the wrong things. To not do anything to build your faith, then presume you have strong faith is not faith. It is deception and it is a sin.

We all have a life and most of us want to hold onto the life we have. God does not want that, He wants us to trade the life we have for the life He has for us. Doing this trade in the sense of walking it out is called faith. Faith is the only way to get that life, there is no other way. Most who believe in the God of the Bible do not want Him to apply the Bible to their life, they only want Him to help them with the life they already have. He will never do that. If we saw God we would never say that, we wouldn’t even think it.

Only those with faith will see Him. Faith is not having a philosophy and faith is not being religious. It is not either of those things at all. If you don’t already know the something other that faith is as God defines it and as God requires it, then for you what you call faith is one of those two, and it will never work. Faith is not agreement and faith is not another word for your belief system, or any belief system.

You have heard the word used that way and are very familiar with it, because the world uses it that way. But the world and the Bible are completely at odds and always have been. Faith is something spiritual, and like all things spiritual it does manifest in the physical. But the manifestation is not faith, it is the result of faith. True faith. The fake faith spoken of in the Bible doesn’t manifest anything, that’s why so many fall away from it. Faith is a living trust in the God you know. Every word is significant.

Faith begins where the Will of God is known. If you don’t know God’s Will for a thing, you won’t have Faith for that thing. Faith is not mental, it is spiritual – and it’s Powerful. Faith is like a Tool, but it’s also a Relationship. You cannot separate Faith from being Led by the Spirit. They go together. You could pray for [someone else’s] Healing from Scripture alone, but you would be forgetting the relationship part. I’ll give you one example of the many miracles available to anyone, that happen in our Ministry regularly. For years.

As the head of an international ministry, one of my tasks is to send 2 of our Preachers out at a time to Africa to minister at our 7 Churches there, in the Rift Valley of Kenya. Usually twice a year. I could have told them to lay hands on the people and pray for their Healing ahead of time, but I did not. Not until our 2nd trip out this particular year, AFTER I heard in my spirit from the Lord that He wanted us to do it. I had Pastor Anthony who oversees our International Ministries contact them while they were out there and give them my Instructions.

Our men out there did What the Authority told them When they were told – and Bam! Multiple instant miraculous Healings. Huge growths coming out of women’s stomachs disappeared in seconds! Look at God! We do What God tells us When He tells us – and we get results every time. You do what You want when You want, you’ll get nothing, and it will hurt your faith. Every time.

Many people think to themselves if I can’t understand this then I cannot be alright. I have to figure out what’s going on or how I’m gonna come out of this. No you don’t. That’s where faith comes in. You do not have to figure it all out to stay in faith and you do not have to understand to stay in faith. You just have to stay in faith. Trust in God allows us to rest before we know how things are going to turn out. Faith is a rest. In the midst of trials persecution and chaos all around, we can be in perfect peace. Because our trust is not in the troubles, our trust is in God. This trusting in God in the midst of the unknown is Faith.

Don’t despair, it’s not too late, as long as we’re willing to Change. We don’t want you to be impressed with our faith. This should inspire you to build your own faith. God will do these things through anyone who does what He says. So here’s what I want you to know about Faith. Faith is a Power given in Measure by the person of God to the person who follows God to do Only what He says. If you’ll take all that I’ve said about Faith here and apply it, it will start working for you. To bring about God’s Will in the earth and in your life. His Word guarantees it.

Casting Down Imaginations

Angel

You do not have the right to say you belong to Jesus but you don’t belong to the Church. The true Church is the Body of Christ. You have to get Fed somewhere, and you don’t get to pick and choose. Don’t treat His Body like it’s some sort of buffet or supermarket, it’s not like that. Jesus is a King. Not a commodity.

If you’re under the King you’re not part of a democracy, you’re part of His Kingdom. He has already ordained the people and places where His Body gets fed in His Kingdom. The various parts are where He puts them, not where they put themselves. This is a real living Body, not some children’s game.

His Spirit will lead you to, and confirm who and where you’re supposed to be joined, but you have to learn how to listen. Everybody has to learn. Most people refuse to, including most believers – they don’t want to. They’d rather have it their way, not do what He say. It’s too difficult . . . for their Flesh.

God has certain things He will only get to you through Ministers in the 5 different Offices of ministry. People chosen by Him. They are there expressly for the reason and purpose of Authority, which you must get up under. Your Flesh will avoid this at all costs. It hates being told what to do. If you don’t kill your Flesh, it will kill you.

This hatred of authority and the rebellious nature that birthed it, came with the Fall of Man. Authority is the very thing that was rebelled against, and the thing that must be submitted to. The fallen nature of our Flesh will not do it, it is Incapable. That’s what the Cross is for, to crucify your Flesh. Jesus said to carry it. It does burn your carnality, but you can burn now . . . or burn later.

The Bible speaks of Imaginations that exalt themselves above the knowledge of God. We are commanded to cast them down. Well where are these Imaginations at. They’re not just in demons and the atmosphere, they’re in everything that is Fallen. These wrong hateful rebellious Imaginations are in us.

When we Fell we became like the one who made us Fall. Accepting what Christ did changes the core part of our Inside, but it doesn’t change us entirely. That gets done through a process of belief and obedience called Faith. Which is our personal job to walk out. Not something to agree with.

It is entirely our job to identify these wrong heart postures and wrong ways of thinking within ourselves. No one else will or can possibly do it for you. God set it up that way. We have to choose. Choose to believe, choose to read the Bible, choose to obey it and therefore Him. Choose to stay. He only wants those who stay.

Choose to submit ourselves to His Will every day. Which is expressed through His Word, His Spirit and His Ministers. And they all agree. You know how we can tell – they all say the same things. If we all don’t learn to say the same things, it’s because we don’t Agree. We wanted something more than we wanted Him. We were all born into disagreement, we must put ourselves into Agreement – through Submission. There is not some other way.

Anointing

Just because you can use a keyboard and have access to the internet does not make what you have to say good counsel and advice. Knowing some Scripture on top of that doesn’t mean what you say came from God. No. I said No. Every convict serving a life sentence can do that . . from most prisons.  Throughout the nation.  The Bible says we will give account for every idle word we have spoken, and that the power of life and death is in our words.  You can tell what you are looking at by what is coming out of your mouth.

You must qualify to speak into the lives of others.  Especially if what you’re speaking are the things of God.  You cannot Call yourself to Ministry – only God can.  And the call is not intellectual, it is Spiritual. In both the Biblical and spiritual sense being ordained is done only by God.  No man can ordain you.  Ordination is not something on paper, it is demonstrated in Power.  Men with papers fill the churches, but they have no power.  God did not ordain them.  They called themselves and they ordained themselves.  There is a big difference between God anointed and Self appointed.

The rise of the Internet hasn’t slowed down the millions who have called themselves, it has sped them up and given them a platform. They confuse having something to say with having a Call.  Having something to say does not give anyone authority.  Only God gives authority, which is backed up by the Anointing.  If you do not have the anointing you are not called to Ministry.  Everyone has a call, but relatively few are called to Ministry.  Many are called few are chosen. The chosen are those who will follow the words.

How is it that Jesus was a person who had the anointing all over Him and came to get the anointing to us men, yet most believers don’t know what the anointing is. Anointing is the power of God in very small doses to change you just a little. Just like one breath and just like one bite of food and one thought or one moment in a day. They all come from Him. There is no excuse for not getting it because everything else provided by God in your life is just like that. You either wanted to know or you didn’t want to know. I want to know.

Well breath and food and time all came from God, they did not come from men. God set all of that up, men had nothing to do with it. How they get to and affect us and what they do in us. It’s the same with the anointing. The way of the world is to be or seek the spectacular, which is the opposite of the way of God in the earth. God is subtle. If He were anything other than subtle in dealing with perverted creatures in a fallen world He would scare us to death or we would be destroyed in any larger movements made by Him.

That is why time is given for fallen men, there is no time in Heaven. And patience is given for fallen men to travel through time the way a ship travels across the ocean. Those who refuse to develop patience are not traveling, they are standing still. God does not have anything for people who stand still any more than He has something for any other sinner. Not doing what God tells you in any capacity is sin. He only helps those who do what He says, and the help He gives is for you to do more of what He says. Until finally, we are like Him. Which is how we were to begin with, before everything got perverted.

That is where God is taking us, back to how it was in the beginning. Genesis means the beginning. Anyone who does not want to go back to the way it was in the beginning will go to a spiritual prison in the center of the earth full of fire and darkness, because they are a sinner. Sinners are spiritual criminals, and every man born into this fallen world which is under a curse, is a spiritual criminal. He is a sinner. Man being a sinner because he was born into sin then continues in sin, is not a topic for discussion, it is a condition. If you even attempt to turn it into a discussion you deny the condition, which is itself another sin.

How did the Devil take over the planet for thousands of years. With his words. What was the main mechanism used to impart his nature and displace God’s nature in Adam and Eve. Lucifer got them to exalt his words above the Word of God.  It has been the same since the Garden of Eden.  The enemy wants you to take your faith out of the Word and put it into something you can see or something you can hear. You can choose between doing what God says or what you want, but you cannot do both.  Ministers whom God has anointed and appointed are uniquely qualified to prepare you for eternity.  They do this by teaching you to obey God.

The ones who are called by God have the power.  Power to change themselves, and power to change others.  That’s what the Anointing is . . . Power.  Just a small amount.  But it is not to do whatever you want, it is only to do what He tells you.  One of the things He tells all of His ministers to do is to say what He says.  They say it to you.  It is this hearing and speaking and keeping God’s word that causes you to Grow Up in Christ.  Keeping it by doing it.  So that you too can walk in a level of this power.

You won’t see this power in their muscles, under a microscope, or in the ability to control lightning. You will hear it in their Words. Your words contain more power more authority in your own life than the words of anyone. Including God’s. He made it that way. God created everything with His words. Jesus is called the Word of God.  Line your words up with His words by getting under the words of those who work for Him. What God created with His Words is affected by His Words.  And only He decides . . . who speaks His Words for Him.

Jezebel, Control and the spirit of Fear

The spirit of fear is one of the most dominant spirits in the earth, in the kingdom of darkness. Another of the most active is the spirit of control and manipulation, also called witchcraft in the Bible. But known in most Pentecostal and Charismatic circles as the spirit of Jezebel. It’s all about Control. One of the reasons men seek to control the things they cannot, is because of fear. Fear is the language of the Devil the same way that Faith is the language of God. In the spiritual realm, fear will call things to you. Saul wouldn’t listen to Samuel when he was alive, but after the Prophet died Saul went to a witch to call up the man of God. It wasn’t Samuel that came up, it was a familiar spirit. A demon.

The enemy has succeeded in getting fear planted deep inside this rebellious and unbelieving generation. More than any that came before it. That’s why there has been an explosion of movies filled with fear terror and horror in the last thirty years. You shouldn’t even watch them, they’ll just build fear in you. Fear drives you, and fear is tormenting. All demons and evil spirits seek expression, and though possession does occur, the most common form of expression is through the Fallen Nature of man. Including believers. Only by way of Influence of course, not through possession. As a Christian you cannot be demon possessed, but you can be demon oppressed. Unbelievers can be possessed by all sorts of demons.

Don’t be proud and think it doesn’t happen to you, anytime you sin you’ve given in  – to a spirit. A spirit other than the Holy Spirit. Nothing to be afraid of, but everything to be aware of. They have no more power or place in your life than that which you give them. Fear and the various forms of it are the way you give these spirits place. It is not God’s will that any fear the devil and his minions. Hollywood is built on hype and exaggeration, just like the devil. He wants you to think that he’s big and bad and powerful, but he is not. He is weak and puny and defeated. But only for Believers. If you don’t know the God who made Heaven and earth, then you are under the god of this world system. Which is the Devil.

Fear is one of many things Christ delivered us from, but the deliverance must be enforced. By each individual in their own life. You can’t enforce it in someone else’s life, and they must be Born Again to be able to do it in their own life and become a temple. A temple is a holy house, a house for God. In the Bible we are called the temple of the Holy Spirit once we accept Christ. The Spirit of God will not share His house with an evil spirit. You have a free will, so you can override God’s will for you life by refusing to yield to His Spirit. All spirits are something you must yield to, including fear. Paul said in his second letter to Timothy that “God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.”

Worry is an expression of fear. Worry worships the words of the enemy. Foreboding is a sense of impending doom. Dread is fearful apprehension. Anxiety is another form of fearful pressure. So is depression. The quickest way to get depressed is to think about yourself. Get your Self off your mind. Your help will never come while you’re looking for it – it will come while you’re looking for Him.

Christ is our help and the Holy Spirit is our Comforter. Ask God to help you and He will, but you have to believe. Don’t think inside your Self . . . think inside the Word. To do that you must fill your spirit with the Word of God by reading it every day. Scripture commands us to cleanse our minds by washing with the water of the Word, and to put on the mind of Christ. Staying in Christ is the only answer to living in the world and not being overcome by it.

Here’s one of the Truth’s we apply in our Ministry to avoid it :

Don’t think about, don’t talk about, don’t meditate on – what you don’t Know what you don’t Have and what you can’t Do. If you’ll do that everyday, you will eliminate about 95% of the worry, frustration, anxiety, depression, heaviness, dread and strife in your life.

Order destroys Chaos

Chaos never tends toward Order. Not once not ever. On its own it cannot, it is impossible. Anyone that tells you otherwise is lying through their teeth, and they know it. To get them to shut up all you have to do is tell them to prove it – right then and there. They will not prove it because they cannot. Order can only be brought to Chaos by way of Applied Force. That means someone is doing the applying and someone has or is – the force. For the Believer that would be God. The others pretend that there is no God. Get out of chaos before it is destroyed.

With all of the resources of modern technology and ability at its disposal, Science cannot reproduce on any level the smallest the minutest the tiniest of its outrageous claims of change or evolution – on any scale. It is nothing but a bunch of Talk, and all of this talk is against God. That is who they are really after, don’t be fooled by their intellectual speculations. They are nothing more than a cover for their rebellion against truth, and the Authority behind all truth. This was admitted openly by those who started these foolish claims a century and a half ago.

When they started adding at first millions, then billions of years to make the pretend changes invisible by making them inaccessible due to length of time, for anyone who wanted to check out their facts.  Believing that if they claimed it happened in very small undetectable amounts over a very long time . . . it would disguise the Process. And nobody could dispute it.  It might almost seem clever if it was not so ridiculous. They cannot prove any of these things, they just say them. I can tell you that running a bunch of words together does not suddenly give them meaning. Any academy of science making the claims that evolution does might as well put the word comedy on the front of the building, with professors who had gained  distinction from their much published graphic novels and comic books. Are you kidding me. People actually believe these things.

At least then we would know they were making fun of God and attacking His Word, which lays out exactly how everything came to be. They just choose not to believe what God says about Himself and the universe He created. No no, just the inverse is True. God has given Man much time and a lot of help to make the smallest changes in both the attitude and direction of his heart and mind, and creep ever so slowly . . . toward Him. And man has refused. Man in his fallen nature despises all Authority. Not realizing this has cost many who have failed to do so.

God has provided man with everything needed for life and godliness here, and for the repentance and salvation needed to get to the next world. A world where He is in charge, completely and totally in charge. Men don’t like that. So men have rejected this knowledge of God – they don’t want it. They want to be in charge. They want Him to go away and leave them alone. Even though nothing they have belongs to them. Not the breath in their lungs, not the light in their eyes, not even their bodies.

In Him we live and move and have our Being. In translation the Hebrew word chabod  is the source for our word glory. It literally means the heavy weighty goodness of God. Meaning that all of God’s goodness added up would be heavy. All of the goodness in the Earth and in Life are part of the goodness of God. They belong to God. The reason that fish swim in the water and do not drown, that biting into fruit tastes good, that the sun warms you but doesn’t burst you into flames – is all because of the goodness of God. It is all part of His Order. God is Good, and He is the God of Order. All things were made by Him, and for Him all things exist. Period.

Love Not The World

The good of mankind is not to be found on this earth. Don’t you listen to the liberals and the secular humanists – all of them hate God! They hate Him. They want nothing to do with His Law, they have no intention of making Jesus their King. They can’t stand the thought of God being the Judge of right and wrong. The very idea of it is an abomination to them.

Since the end of the Victorian era a little over a century ago, all of the new ideologies of psychology, sociology and modern philosophy have bombarded first world society with a never ending barrage of worldliness and carnality. We’ve gone from almost all people going to Church and truly believing in God on some level, to most in the modern age not going to church at all, with some of them kind of believing in God a little.

These modern people are very different than the people who came before them. They are self centered, self promoting and filled with the love of Self foretold in the Scripture for the Last Days, written nearly two thousand years ago. Now we are at the pinnacle of their impact on the thoughts and attitudes of the people, and for the first time – their numbers are in the majority. Churchgoer or not.

They love Babylon, they love Sin, and they love having their own will with what they perceive to be their own life. Pray for them, be a witness – but don’t try to get them to like you. Jesus never did that. Never. He just walked in Love, and many liked it. Some did not. What He always did was to speak the Truth wherever He went.

Those who loved the Truth came in, and those who did not love the Truth stayed out – or opposed Him. If they hated Him, they will hate you. Don’t be troubled by it. If you live for God He promises that He’ll trouble those who trouble you. But it’s never our job to get back at those who’ve hurt us. Even though at times the desire to do so will be overwhelming.

Vengeance belongs to the Lord. That’s His business, and He’ll see to it. You just let His Light in you shine through you. If you’ll just stay filled with the Word and stay in the Spirit, everyday – you’ll do more for God’s Kingdom than most have done in a lifetime of their own best efforts with many resources and much money. Be a light by staying in the Light. God will take care of the rest.

The Interruption

The Day is coming and it’s coming quickly.  If you want to grow in the Lord, if you freely admit the need to come up higher and become more Christlike – then you must be brutally Honest with yourself right now, in what I’m about to ask. As a Prophet, I don’t have everything for you, no Minister does. I only have some things, but what I have for you is Essential. You need Everything the Lord has for you through any true Minister you’re connected to, in any way. Everything. From the Apostle and Prophet just as you do from the Evangelist, the Pastor and the Teacher. You need all of what each Office of ministry has for you, we all do. You don’t get to choose them like flavors, they work together like a Body. You’re either connected to them, or you’re not. And it’s no accident that you get the Word from those who are connected to you.

So here’s the question. Are you ready for Jesus to come right now – this second. I mean are you really ready.  Are you. He’s coming just like that. If there is any hesitation or a slight panic you sense deep within yourself as you consider it – that’s in the Bible!  It’s what the Bible calls drawing back. You may even be getting ready for Him, but He’s not coming for those who are Getting Ready.  That hesitation is the very thing that would cause you to Draw Back. Which does not please the Lord, and would be bad for you. If the reality of the question shocks any, or you’re still in shock – you’re not even Getting ready for Him to come back. If that’s the case you need to repent. Right now. Because listen to me friend, the 2 main events in All of Scripture – are His 1st Coming and His 2nd Coming. One happened 2000 years ago, the other is right at the door. I mean moments away, and no I’m not exaggerating. I’m simply speaking the language of the Bible.

The return of Jesus Christ to the earth will not be as Savior, it will be as King. If He is not your King right now, then you are not one of those He’s coming back for. He came as Savior already, and you don’t get to make Him your King when He gets here. We’ve had plenty of time. Plenty. If more time would have helped the Lord would have given it. Length of time given is not the problem – the depth of our Rebellion is. In our Fallen Nature we are against God. We need help, much help – and he has sent it. Twenty centuries ago. Now He’s coming back to see who took the help – and to see who was just talking.

The only help He gave was the help to Change and become like Him. Most have refused this help. I’m not talking about being Saved now, I’m talking about making it out on the first boat. Most believers will be going through the Tribulation, but if you obeyed His Word – you won’t.  The Rapture isn’t for believers, it’s for the Overcomers, those who obeyed God.  The demons believe.  Those who still Believe by the end of the Tribulation will join us at His 2nd Coming. Don’t believe me, search the Scriptures and check it out yourself.  Many many so called Christians will be shocked, literally. They thought they could work God the way they worked everything else in their life. Not a chance, God is not mocked remember. It’s not about being perfect, it’s about taking God seriously. Don’t be one of those who didn’t.

His Return will be an Interruption for everyone who lives on the earth, and the Bible says so. But for all who are not Ready – it will be catastrophic. It will surprise hundreds of millions of people who called themselves Christians. Not because they didn’t have a chance to get it right, but because they wouldn’t get it right.  They never really meant it. They didn’t Believe in Him or His Word – like that. One translation says that they would be religious, but reject the power that could make them godly. Another says they will appear to have a godly life, but they will not let it’s power change them. Just about 2 years ago the Lord put it on my heart to confront every member of our Ecclesia [during a sermon] with that question. Surprisingly, if the Lord had returned then, none of us were ready within ourselves.  We could tell.  You can tell.  I am very glad to say that now, we are . . .
