This is a very challenging verse. That is, a very challenging verse to many in the Body of Christ. To many in the Body of Christ who, as many times as they have read it, neither truly understand nor adhere to what the Apostle Paul was saying here.
As a matter of fact, most of the time, they do the exact opposite. They help the devil along by creating MORE divisions in the Body of Christ, and acting like their sect of Christianity is better than anyone else’s.
They act like schoolchildren on the playground, not allowing some to join their games because of how the others look, talk, sound, and act. Granted, it is one thing to “test the spirits”(1Jn. 4:1-3) and a Berean (Acts 17:11), but it is entirely another thing to tear a true brother or sister in the Lord up with ugly words just because they are “different”.
The Lord loves variety, and yes, He loves UNITY among the brethren when they truly are worshipping the One and the Same Jesus—that is a must.
The early Church “got” it; those in the time of the birth of the Church (Acts) realized what was needed to be done in order to have and keep that unity while also adhering to the Word. What happened since then? What happened to the Body of Christ?
Satan saw that there were murmurings and divisions started, and so he took the opportunity to WIDEN the division, and voila—here we are TODAY, in the 21st century, with splits in the Church by the tens of thousands! Disgusting.
But we cannot blame it all on Satan—it is the CHURCH’S fault for not seeing what WE allowed the enemy to do, and correct it.
Bottom line— if this is not corrected by the time the Lord Jesus returns, churches of God (and I use that term loosely) who say they are in the Body of Christ—be warned once again, you WILL answer to Him as to WHY we are no longer “in one accord”.
That IS what Jesus prayed for, after all, in John 17:21, “that they all may be ONE, as Thou, Father, art in Me, and I in Thee…that the world may believe that Thou hast sent Me.”
The Holy Spirit’s guidance, teaching, leading, correction, etc. is obviously MISSING from all of this, hence the reason why for the most part, the Body of Christ has been divided as such. Why would we as the Body of Christ, the Church, be so stubborn and stiff-necked to the Very One Who Christ Himself sent and said we were to listen to, be led by and learn from (Jn. 16:13)? How can we call ourselves then, sons of the Most High God, if we refuse to be led by Him(Rom. 8:14)?
Hmmm…maybe that IS the very reason WHY the world has a problem believing in Jesus—because they no longer see the UNITY in the Body of Christ. Something to think and pray fervently about, beloved.
“For we have not here a lasting city but we seek one that is to come” (Hebrews 13:14-16).
“But our citizenship is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ” (Philip. 3:20).
“I have given them Your Word and the world has hated them; for they are not of the world, just as I am not of the world”(John 17:15).
“I have said these things to you that in Me you may have peace. In the world you WILL have tribulation. But take heart—I HAVE overcome the world” (John 16:33).
Remember this quote from St. Augustine, as you look around and see all that is going on in this world. This world IS to be judged:
“Now is the judgment of this world; now will the ruler of this world be cast out” (Jn 12:31). “Concerning judgment, because the ruler of this world (Satan and all evil spirits and those who follow after him) is judged” (John 16:11).
Continue to “set your mind on things that are above, not on things that are on the earth” (Col. 3:2).
“But according to His promise we ARE waiting for new heavens and a new Earth in which righteousness dwells” (2 Peter 3:13).
YOU that know this are HIS!
“Little children, you are from God and have overcome them (the evil spirits in the world), for He Who is in you is greater than he (the world, the flesh and the devil) who is in the world” (1John 4:4).
Keep looking up, beloved, for our Redemption is very near!
“Keep watch at all times and pray that you may have the strength to escape all that is about to happen and to stand before the Son of Man” (Luke 21:36).
Do not quit; do not give in. “Do not grow weary of doing good, for in DUE SEASON we will reap, if we do not give up” (Galatians 6:9).
Stand up for what is TRUE and JUST. Do not fear to speak up for what YOU KNOW is wrong. RESIST the ones permitting evil to come even into the Church at this time. “Submit yourselves, then, to God. RESIST the devil, and he will flee from you” (James 4:7).
“Fear not, for I am with you; Do not be afraid, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand” (Isaiah 41:10).
“Wherefore take unto you the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, TO STAND” (Eph. 6:13).
Do not fall for the deceitfulness of the wicked ones. Do not be caught in the same trap billions of others have been caught in; their end is the same as Lucifer and the fallen Angels—Revelation 21:8. Seek the LORD out; seek out righteousness and truth. Seek out love, mercy, forgiveness, holiness, grace, patience, purity. If you seek these things, the same will be given to you. If you seek what the world gives—the lust of the eyes, the lust of the flesh, and the pride of life—you will be given the consequences of such things— the second death. Earthly wisdom and wealth, or heavenly knowledge, wisdom, understanding and discernment, which leads to life everlasting. It is your God-given free-will choice, whether you believe in Him or not right now. But One Day, you WILL.
“Thus saith the LORD of hosts, Behold, evil shall go forth from nation to nation, and a great whirlwind shall be raised up from the coasts of the Earth.
And the slain of the LORD shall be at that day from one end of the Earth even unto the other end of the Earth…” Jeremiah 25:32-33a
There will come a Day when the LORD GOD Almighty, and His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, will recompense for all the evil that is being done here and now—make no mistake about that.
“God is not a man that He should lie, nor the son of man that He should repent: Hath He said, and shall He not do it? Or hath He spoken, and shall He not make it good?” Numbers 23:19
God keeps every one of His promises—even to wipe out the existence of evil on the very planet He made for humanity, even if it means destroying those humans who commit to continue to do evil in His sight.
It will happen—make no mistake about it.
Stop thinking everything is going to go “back to normal”—there IS no “normal”—there never was. No sunshine, “positive vibes” and unicorns are going to stop what is coming. Face the music.
REPENT, if you need to; REJOICE, if you are a son or daughter of the King; REMEMBER who He has called you to be, if you have strayed away from Him. He loves you, and wants you to go to Him, but it must be now—do not keep putting it off. “For He saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I helped you. Behold, NOW is a very acceptable time; behold, NOW is the day of salvation.” 2 Corinthians 6:2
Beloved, do not put it off any longer. The Day of the Lord WILL happen; be ready for it, and go to Him. He is waiting for YOU to “Look to Me, and be you saved, all the ends of the Earth: for I am God, and there is none else.” Isaiah 45:22.
“I will call on the LORD who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from my enemies.” 2 Samuel 22:4
I’m sorry—I have put this off for TOO LONG. I have to “go off” on you all, for your own spiritual and eternal good.
🛡⚔️In case you wonder why I write such things that may sound so archaic, and “doom and gloom”—I AM a Servant of the Most High God, and my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. I HAVE a spiritual obligation to my Master and King, to INFORM and WARN of such things.
📖If you do not like it, nor believe, you do not have a problem with me, nor insult me—you have then, a problem with the Most High, and Judge of all the Earth (Genesis 18:25; Ps. 75:7; 82:8; 2 Tim. 4:8; Hebrews 12:23), and call Him a LIAR. He hates that.
These demonically-controlled minded people obviously think we totally have forgotten what they said on TV last year; I for one, have NOT forgotten! For almost the first month or so of the pandemic, I watched Fox News’ daily updates with Dr. Tony Fauci, President Trump, and the rest of the crew that was with them. I REMEMBER Dr. Fauci saying 1) that the CHILDREN, since they have way better immune systems than us older adults, would NOT NEED a shot (unless they personally had certain medical issues) when one came available, and 2) the fact that masks, if needed, were for the INFECTED people, NOT for everyone to wear!
Once I saw the double talk going on a couple of months after that—as IF we all lost our minds (and I believe some really have at this point🙄😒) and became automoton sheep robots, and totally “forgot” all that he and the other so-called “health experts” over at the CDC and WHO said, I knew that something fishy was going on—this was no more for our health, benefit and safety—the lockdowns were being used to control us, and the masks and now the unlawful mandates are doing even more damage to this country and its people.
It was ALWAYS about FEAR and CONTROL, people—the TWO MAIN TACTICS OF the SATANIC agenda since the Garden of Eden…but most of you would just shake your heads and call me nuts.
At least I’m not bowing down to them, kissing their butts out of fear to keep a job, ruining my health, and losing my freedom!😠
✡️GOD my Father is my Protector, the LORD ✝️JESUS is my Savior and Deliverer from all this evil, and the HOLY 🕊SPIRIT is my daily Comforter (Jn. 14:26), guide ( Jn. 16:13) and “still small voice” (1 Kings 19:12) that continues to provide (Jehovah Jireh-Gen. 22:14) for my every need. I do NOT want part of a government that continues to literally inject POISON into our veins, whether through a shot or the “idiot box” via MSM.
😤😡I HATE DOUBLE TALK, and I HATE LIARS. I am to hate what God hates(Prov. 6:16-19), DETEST IT, and cling to that which He loves(Rom. 12:9), which is the TRUTH, for He IS the SPIRIT of Truth(Jn. 16:13), and the Way, the TRUTH and the LIFE(Jn. 14:6).
📖“To fear the Lord (reverently) is to HATE EVIL” (Prov. 8:13).
📖And you know what the Bible says about LIARS, Tony Fauci et al? Do you KNOW 🤨 where you all are going to end up? Let me show you:
📖“But the FEARFUL, and UNBELIEVING, and the ABOMINABLE, and MURDERERS (that includes all those who consented into making this man-made virus to begin with, and permitting it to be spread throughout the world; That = GENOCIDE😠), and WHOREMONGERS, and SORCERERS (that does not just mean dealing with witchcraft; it also means pharmakeia (Gk) = pharmacy=poisonous DRUGS), 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).
🛡⚔️THIS, dear ones, is a WAR between GOOD and EVIL—it ALWAYS has been, and until the LORD GOD Almighty “pulls the plug” on this world and says “IT IS DONE”—YOU, whether you want to be or not, ARE smack dab in the middle of an ANCIENT SPIRITUAL WARFARE between the LORD GOD and His rebellious, evil, satanic fallen angels and ALL the humans that (🤦♀️smh) were fooled into thinking somehow, someday, SOME WAY, they were going to usurp the Lord God from His Throne, and take over Heaven and mankind.
They only managed to do damage to the latter of that last statement; they conveniently “forgot”(just like they want us to forget😉) that Lucifer/Satan GOT HIS BUTT KICKED OUT OF HEAVEN, and JESUS even said, “I saw Satan fall like lightning from Heaven” (Luke 10:18). That’s because JESUS EXISTED (Colossians 1:15-18) AS ONE WITH THE FATHER prior to coming to us as the INCARNATE WORD (see John 1:14)!!
FOLKS, WAKE your spiritual BUTTS UP, and SEE👀 what REALLY is going on!!! I normally deal with Spiritual Warfare on a regular basis—I KNOW (and so does every godly clergyman, Exorcist and Deliverance Worker out there) that this is TRUE!
Oh, and 🙄by the way, if Satan LOST the FIRST TIME he was kicked out of Heaven, 🤦♀️WHY would anyone have the slightest inclination to believe (this goes out to all the pagan/satan/other gods worshippers out there) that he and his satanic army (of fallen angels, Nephilim, Rephaim, and very spiritually lost humans) would be able to finally take God’s Throne over? Really? 🤨
The WAR for souls has been WON and BOUGHT by the 🩸BLOOD OF JESUS✝️CHRIST, the ONLY ✡️MESSIAH that this world needs, now more than ever. 🙏🏼🙌❤️✝️
🙏🏼HUMBLE YOURSELVES, and PRAY, and SEEK HIS FACE, and TURN FROM YOUR WICKED WAYS (2 Chronicles 7:14)—so that the LORD God WILL hear from Heaven, AND will FORGIVE your SINS (for there are MANY), and HEAL this LAND we call the UNITED 🇺🇸STATES of 🇺🇸AMERICA, before it IS too late, and we lose it ALL.🙏🏼📿🛡⚔️📖😭😞
HERE’S PHYSICAL 👇👇👇👇PROOF for the naysayers, and those who “just happened” to forget that Tony actually said this…🤨😒
365 times in the Bible, it tells us to “DO NOT FEAR”, so why do we still give into it? Why keep allowing the lies of the enemy to beat you down each and every day?
I’ll tell you why, beloved—because either we do not read God’s Word at all, or we do, and do not BELIEVE and receive the benefits from it.
We are to TAKE GOD AT HIS WORD—all of it, not just bits and pieces of it. You insult the Most High God if that is what you are doing. I know—I did it myself years ago, and I did not even realize I was doing it.
If you say you believe in God, in His Son Jesus, and the Holy Spirit—if you say that the Eternal Godhead is part of your life—part is not good enough.
SURRENDER ALL to Him! Seek and pray to have God’s perspective in this life; long for righteousness and truth, and to rid this world of the evil that is taking it on a downward spiral more each day.
Do NOT allow the enemy of our souls to continue to inject FEAR into your lives!! I stopped him from doing that long ago, and I felt like I could BREATHE again!!
I took back what the enemy stole from me—my eternal life, my joy, my confidence and strength in Christ, and knowing that I am the LORD’S, and NO ONE, especially a piece of filth demon or rebellious angel that got himself kicked out of the Throne Room of Heaven, was going to steal, kill or destroy anything from me ever again, in the Name of Jesus!!
LOVE is what conquers the evil, the HATRED, the prejudice, the anger, bitterness, resentment, and unforgiveness in this life!
Rid yourselves of those demonic fiery darts, along with FEAR, and you too, will take back YOUR life that the Lord God meant for you to have, and to live for Him, and to bless you and others with! You will feel like a thousand pounds came off of you, when you leave all that demonic junk at the foot of the Cross, and start to LIVE for Christ, LOVE one another, and DEFEAT the devil by speaking out THE LIVING Rhema WORD in your life!!
NO FEAR—kick it out!! No torments from it anymore—only FREEDOM to live the life WE ALL were meant to live, for the Eternal Godhead, for HIS glory, and for the salvation of souls!
We who profess to be believers in Christ, are to EXPOSE the lies, deceit, the theives, those who pretend to be good, but by their fruits they are truly known, murderers, those who plot and scheme evil things against us, etc.
However, do not take these situations, beloved, into your own hands—hand them over to the Lord God in prayer. Use the Living Rhema (spoken) Word of God to pray against such evil that obviously exists in this world. Prayers are going up to the Lord as how to deal with all this evil—so here once agai, is the ANSWER to those prayers and questions.
By the way, it is not that there is MORE evil these days—it has always been here, since the days of Cain killing Abel(as far as the first humans are concerned); it’s just been hidden from us, for those who perpetrate the evil wanted it kept secret. Now they do not even care anymore—what used to be done secretly in the darkness, is now being done out in the open for all to see.
YOUR job, beloved of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, is to wage spiritual warfare against such evil spirits, with the POWER and AUTHORITY the Lord God gave you to use.
He also will hold ALL of us children accountable for taking up arms in prayer against such evil, and yes, speaking OUT about it as well, so do it in obedience to the Lord as He wills it.
The Lord God Himself said, “Vengeance is Mine; I will repay them in DUE TIME, that their foot may slide: the Day of destruction is at hand, and the time makes haste to come” (Deut. 32:35).
Let Him deal with destroying them altogether, if they choose to remain in their sins. In Matthew 10:28 the Lord Jesus said, “And fear not them which are able to kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: rather fear HIM Who is able to destroy both soul AND body in Hell.”
Remember what the Lord Jesus said, “Pray for them which persecute you…”
Also, “Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven. Blessed are you, when men shall revile you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for My sake. Rejoice, and be exceedingly glad: for great is your reward in Heaven: for so persecuted they the Prophets which were before you” (Matt.5:44, 10-11).
Are we any better than the Prophets of old, or the saints that have gone before us, that have suffered so greatly, and have even been martyred for the Faith? Absolutely not. Then we should expect the same may happen to us, if it is the Lord’s will (see 2Tim. 3:12).
The Holy Spirit said to me some days ago, “It is not how you entered into the world that is important, neither is it how you exit, but WHAT YOU DID with your time while you were HERE.”
He said that to me because the evil spirits once in a while like to remind me that I was a product of an affair—that is how I came into this world; but that did not matter to the Lord—what mattered to HIM was calling and choosing ME unto HIMSELF (Isaiah 43:1), to serve Him.
So do not let those vile demonic beasts make you feel worthless—for GOD has PURPOSED YOU for HIMSELF and HE loved you enough to DIE for you, taking YOUR sins upon HIMSELF (1Cor. 15:3; Gal. 1:4; Rom. 4:25; 1Jn 2:2; 1Peter 2:24), so that you and I, and all others who accept Jesus as Messiah and King, would have a way back to the FATHER God, and most importantly, ETERNAL LIFE with HIM.
✨✨One last very important note:
Remember that it is NOT the person (human spirit) who you are fighting against, but the EVIL SPIRITS behind and within the person (again, look up 2Cor. 10:3-5). THIS is a SPIRITUAL WAR you are seeing play out (manifesting) in the PHYSICAL world.
If you have trouble believing this, I suggest you take it to prayer and ask the Holy Spirit to lead and guide you in further understanding and discernment of it all. My “job” is to INFORM and WARN on all that is going on, and to point out the Biblical truths of what we all see happening; the rest is up to you, beloved, whether or not you choose to believe, or resist the Lord God and His Word.
Sometimes, it is just best to allow the Scriptures to do all the “talking”, especially in these troubled times. We need reminders what God already has said in His Word what was to happen in these Last Days.
These are the verses that were put on my heart this morning, after a long overnight “prayer session”–
“I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches.
Anochi shoresh David—I am the Root and Offspring of David, and the Bright and Morning Star.”—Rev. 22:16
“And Jesus answered them and said, Take heed no man deceive you.”
“and ye shall hear of wars and rumors of wars: see that ye be not trouble: for ALL these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.”
“All these are the beginning of sorrows.”
“These things I have spoken unto you, that in ME you might have Peace. In the world (system) you shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; Ani nitzachti et ha olam —
I HAVE OVERCOME THE WORLD.”—Jn. 16:33
Praise God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit—the Eternal Godhead—Elohim, for HE has ALREADY redeemed us—all WE have to do, is seek Him, ACCEPT Him as Lord and Savior of our Lives, and ask for forgiveness of our sins. He will instruct you, direct you (Ps. 32:8; Jn. 16:13) and guide you from there.
Are you ready and willing?
Seek Him while He may still be found.—Is. 55:6-7🙏🏼✡️📖✝️
It takes faith to believe in a God Who, for the most part, we do not see physically. I say “for the most part”, because Jesus, Who is the Second Person of the Trinity/God, has not only spent 33 years on this Earth, but also has appeared as “Theophanies” or “Christophanies” in the OT as well. But He hasn’t stopped there. There has been numerous accounts throughout the centuries, of the Lord Jesus appearing to people, and at times, even speaking to them.
I am one of those, when I was very young, although He said nothing to me that night, but only smiled at me for a few minutes, before He walked away. I have heard the Voice of the Lord years later, because I asked to audibly hear it. I read the account of the Prophet Samuel in the OT, and I wanted that experience. I heard the Spirit speak to me many times to my spirit, but this one time, He granted that I heard Him audibly. I have seen my Guardian Angels, and many more, at one time or another.*
I have also encountered the disgusting, vile evil spirits—I’ve seen them, smelled them, heard them, felt them. But then again, I’ve had the “Spiritual Warfare” card dealt to me by the Holy Spirit, to wage warfare against such vile creatures in prayer.
The Lord has shown Himself over and over again, for us to BELIEVE that He IS Who He says He is in His Word. He knows our weak minds and spirits—He knows we need “proof”, and He’s given it.
NOW it’s our time to face that truth—the truth that HE IS the WAY, the TRUTH and the LIFE, and NO MAN comes to the Father but by HIM (Jn 14:6). You may not (need to)have all the experiences that some of us had—your faith may be that much stronger, or what He calls you to do, may not require for you to see and hear as some of us have.
Having faith in the Lord Jesus, and BELIEVING before seeing, is all He is asking of us to do. He IS the one and only “I AM”, and He WILL be coming back, “For God is not a man that He should lie…” (Numbers 23:19)
