MOVING FORWARD

MOVING FORWARD From Offenses and Woundings

For many of us, conflict and strife are two of the most difficult areas to address. The inability to confidently address criticism and conflict  stifles our ability to soar upward into our divine fullness. The book of Proverbs is chock full of warnings to be cautious in our communication. Being slow to speak and waiting for divine wisdom for understanding has been challenging for me. I grew up in a family atmosphere of intense conflict between my German mother and Puerto-Rican father, whose relationship started to weaken when my father took on great responsibilities as the vice president of the Spanish Fraternity. His time and financial investments to the Spanish Community were straining our family and mom and dad argued constantly. I was very sensitive as a young girl and my parents arguing was very distressing for me. I also had to endure my mother’s temper tantrums where she regularly overturned the furniture, tore apart everything in my two younger sisters’ rooms and gave them beatings. This abusive environment of fear and anger became of stronghold in me. I was terrified of angry, mean people. At the first sign of a negative body language or facial expression, my stomach would turn and I became nauseous. I must admit,  my communication  style was challenged because of my nervousness in the presence of angry people.  This stronghold intensified during my first marriage where I endured domestic violence.  My fear to express disatisfaction or  uphold my boundaries  was firmly established. and my husband’s rage when I stated my opiinion caused me to keep m mouth shut because I didn’t want to be attacked.

We’ve all suffered rejection, abandonment and/or abuse and the extent of our spiritual growth-healing depends on our willingness to allow Christ to heal the deeply-embedded, negative strongholds of our mind and soul. In my life as a creative person,  (many artists, musicians and people in creative fields) feel a need to escape the sordid aspects of reality. Non creative people can also seek refuge in certain comforts such as sports, drugs, alcohol, shopping, food addictions and pornography. This is natural for us to feel safe from excruciating mental anguish or a sexual trauma such as molestation or rape. Those of us from extremely abusive backgrounds believe that the only way to cope with our painful past is to find refuge in the beauty and wonder of our creative endeavors and projects. Success in our careers and creativity is a good thing, but staying stuck in the plateau of woundedness and the trauma is not.

For me it has been a very long and painful road to spiritual freedom and joy because there were few intuitive and anointed pastors and/or deliverance counselors who could help me accurately identify negative strongholds. Even less to find are those who willingly guide a wounded individual to Christ’s wholeness. With the kingdom of hell becoming more aggressive than ever before, (satan knows his time is very short). God’s people are getting a triple dose of attacks in every area of life. It’s rare for any child of God not to be suffering some attack. Strife and division seems to be the main area satan has been using to create division and weakness in the body of Christ. The way around this is continual time in God’s presence, repentance and being accountable to elders.

The law of Love

1 Cor. 13 4-8 is really the formula which builds and strengthens the body, but often harder than it seems. Agape love allows no pride and convicts us when refuse to be wrong. We say, “Why should I acquiesce to him/her?” The spirit of offense is strong and often uses the element of surprise. You’re caught off guard when he strikes and you’re trembling in anger. Offense must be taken captive by Christ’s authority.
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
8 Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.

A fellow intercessor sister and I were praying about how to address various weak areas our brthren needed to address. I told her how disappointed II was about several incidents which occurred with very dear and mature prophetic Christian sisters in my circle. Each incident involved a disagreement where both parties responded in quick anger. There was no resolution and the two decided not to bother with each other again. This breaking of relationship and avoiding each other disturbs me and disturbs the delicate atmosphere of unity in God’s family. We may glibly disregard our decision to break relationship with a brother or sister, but that small offense breaches the circle of love. We may not immediately feel or see the sting of offense-rejection, but it’s seed  takes root nonetheless and it opens the door to other demonic strongholds.

Pastor Derrik Prince teaches how just one rejection can swing open a door allowing other demonic stronghold to take root. This is why repentance is so necessary. When we are unified in love, we operate in great power and achieve God’s greatest miracles, healing and deliverance. When we have disagreements so sharp that we cut off the relationship and go on our merry way, we lose the opportunity to grow in the area of resolving conflict. We are as iron sharpening iron and Father is pleased when we conquer that pride spirit and seek reconciliation and resolution. With God all things are possible and when we come together in prayer, with the intention of resolving and unifying, we will be building bridges and healing wounded or misunderstood hearts.

Let us never forget that satan is cunning and has studied mankind for eons. He knows exactly how to s get a toehold in even the most well-intentioned. Conquering offense can often be difficult for people raised in angry, alcoholic and dysfunctional backgrounds. They often have deep-rooted strongholds of unworthiness and inferiority. Their mothers may have scorned, “You’re no good” or “You’ll never amount to anything.” If these declarations are not renounced and broken off, those voices will continue to harass and maim. The child will grow up to be an adult who is fearful of constructive criticism of any kind. When questioned, they respond immediately with raised dukes to fend imagined, crippling blows to their fragile self-worth. Those voices taunt incessantly, threatening their marriage and/or family. These negative accusing voices come from the pits of hell.  Strongholds of rejection and unworthiness can only be banished by daily meditating and declaring God’s truth about His precious children  who are created to do good works!

Learn to address feelings of shame, anxiety and/or unworthiness with God’s word. For those of us who have been raised in abuse and unhealthy homes, we must make wholeness and God’s word a priority. Healing from unhealthy influences may need help from strong, positive mentors. Learn not to be ashamed and defensive when questioned or criticized. Learn to recognize pride when he it rises up. Pride separates, but love unites. Don’t let pride bar us from admitting we don’t have all the answers or we made a mistake. Be sensitive to Holy  Spirit’s nudge when ou quickly  respondi inappropriately, angrilly or with unwaranted suspicion. Give people the benefit of the doubt that they are not always out to get you.

Repentance (humility) are not dirty words and we should never be ashamed to get on our faces, cry out in deep humility and ask Father to reveal our shortcomings. Repentance is cleansing and we grow in His grace when we are transparent. In one of my group prayer battalions, we start out our conference call with confessing our sins and weaknesses to each other.  This was a new thing to me, but found after a few weeks, how it draew my sisters and I closer together and made us more compassionate and prayerful for each other!

Repentance should be as natural as doing a detox or fast for our physical bodies. When we cleanse our body through daily repenting, we do not hinder the flow of Holy Spirit or block Him from blessing us with His conviction and gracious deliverance! My prayer for the body of Christ, is that we work on being transparent and honest with each other. Sin and iniquities root and flourish when we keep our sins and weaknesses hidden. The Bible says we are to confess our sins and weaknesses with each other daily.  All too often,  I see and hear about episodes where our Christian brethren display rage and  are vindictive on Facebook and other public forums. This is a very poor witness to non-believers and grieves our heavenly Father. Especially damaging is strife and division about political issues and gossip. A wise, gracious person would have nothing to do with strife because it weakens the bond of fellowship. We need to share our views respectfully and if the disagreement is too intense, then we must agree to disagree and avoid the subject for the sake of peace.

Brothers and sisters, we need to get it together because we are in the end of the end times and time is short. The eternal destinies of millions are at the precipice of decision and our demeanor must be Christ-alluring, a fragrance in the stench of pride and worldliness. When we are dedicated to unity in our King Jesus, satan cannot get a toehold. Pride in us is insidious and let us remember that it sneaks up even in the best of us. Let us not be afraid to be wrong or uniformed and let us ask God for HIs divine wisdom!

WALK LIKE a KING


King George VI and Queen Elizabeth.jpg

I is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honour of kings is to search out a matter. Proverbs 25:2

Do you see the opulent glory of the king’s and Queen’s attire? Take a closer look at their stance. Do you see yourself as a King or Queen? Well, you are. The Bibles says that we are kings and priests ministering to our great and mighty God. If you are living or embracing the mindset of a pauper,  ( the choice is always ours), than it’s high time to examine the reasons being your thinking. Perhaps you were taught by your parents or teachers to  respond to life  and circumstances in a certain way. Perhaps  pastors or Sunday school teachers taught you to  decipher the scriptures in a black or white extreme or  very rigid and unmerciful. Both of these types of teaching lead to emotional and spiritual bondage and a very joyless, shallow knowledge of God’s word and person. First and second chapters of Colossians, boasts the glorious treasures  God has ordained for us to receive and walk in.

Father wishes for to be whole, healed and in living in abundance. 3 John 1:2. Why are so many brothers and sisters living defeated and miserable lives? Their very faces show the  state they are in, perpetually disgruntled, scrutinizing their brethren in grey areas of conviction and  having a negative outlook on life and the  future. No wonder non-believers have no interest in coming to Christ! Is this you, beloved?Maybe it’s time for a Holy Ghost reality check.

Why are some Christian overflowing in abundance and joy and others are in perpetual lack and depression. We can know that the joy of the Lord is our strength. In this context, Nehemiah 8:10, Joy is not an event of good fortune or a sudden happy event.  The Hebrew in this case means that we are enjoined and in the secure protection of our God! In many Psalms in the Bible, Yahweh Jehovah is our high tower, buckler and  shield. Knowing this deeply in your spirit, shoudl never cause you to stay for long periods of time in helpless depression. We are never hoepless as long as we abide in the Vine, our Savior and Lord and protective shepherd, Yashuah Jesus. Each day, we are refreshed by His rivers of living water and each new day bring new mercies.

That is good news to me and hopefully always for you too!  That[s why The Gospel of Yashuah Jesus is the good news,. Prisoners are set free…from fear, depression, poverty, witchcraft, pornography, obesity and many other generational strongholds. Luke 4:8. Brother or sister, have you received Jesus’ freedom?

It is time to embrace the revelation of Father’s covenenat promises. and it won’t be by  amassing much knowledge and studying.   Knowledge puffs up, but love builds up. 2The one who thinks he knows something does not yet know as he ought to know.… 1 Cor  :1

Paul elaborates in the first and second chapters of Colossians that mystery of the Gentiles is…Christ in you. Imagine that! In Yashuah Jesus,  all the fullness of glory, dominion and honor  exists and Father Jehovah has adopted us into that kingly-Priestly heritage. Here is where Paul urges us to walk  worthy in the Lord. How do we walk worthy? Col. 1:10.  1 Peter 2:9 ,  Tells us we are now  a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.! This is tremendously exciting news to me.

We now adopted into a royal heritage a holy inheritance through Yashauh Jesus. let us no longer call ourselves wretched sinners, but a holy Priesthood! It is time to revere the sacrifice and partake of Jesus’ gift to us through His shed blood and broken body. Sadly, many of us have never received the revelation or been taught properly because their pastors walked  in the flesh and did not accept divine wisdom and revelation from Holy Spirit (Ruach HaKodesh because of legalsim and unbelief!  Countless TV pastors and ministries  are not led by Holy Spirit, but their own perceived idea of holiness. ( God will hold accountable these pastor, teachers and Rabbis who don not walk in the Spirit, but in the flesh. sadly, these blind lead the blind and many fall into the ditch or deception an lack.  But rejoice, for . Jesus Himself comforted his disciples. When He left, Father would send a comforter. They would not be left as orphans!

Oh beloved, Father has ordained for us to be so much more than we are at present. When we  abide in the limited  perception and mindsets of the old life, we choose to live as miserable paupers.

This past Saturday night, Pastor jJentezen’s  sermon was about greatness. He said greatness is not being born to a wealthy family, having a great talent or having thousands of Twitter or  Facebook followers. Pastor elaborated on what greatness truly is and that is walking worthy in the Lord. Folks, it is a decisive decision to be excellent in every area of your life! It is very hard work and being meticulous and focused, not living in any old sloppy Agape.

I’m continuing this expository after sitting outdoors under the canopy of the trees in my  back yard. The  beautiful strains of three-part harmonies of the Christian group, Second Chapter of Acts hymn, Oh Sacred Head Now Wounded  wafted through my open windowThe mournful hymn  drew me into the depth of  Christ’s suffering  as he prepared  to strengthen Himself in preparation for His next (and last)  excruciating hours of His life. I started to weep and could imagine  Him, alone  and in fearful trepidation  in the  garden of Gethsemane. Great drops of blood breaking out around His face as he begged  His Father that the cup would pass.And Thank God that it did not pass …for I would not be writing this to you now in great thankfulness for His mercy and grace!

I continued to ponder and my  heart began grow very heavy.. Thoughts came about how our nation had sunk to such depraved depths and I  whispered, “I’m so sorry Father for my sins, for our sins. Please forgive us and heal our nation”. I thought about the sex-trafficking trade and  even thought about the breaches that came from our broken covenants and relationships and even from as far back as our  forefathers. How many of us learned from our history books as young student about the plight of the Native Americans. Their portrayal was that they were  half-naked savages deserving to be conquered, humiliated, removed from their ancient land and eventually,  annihilated. . My sorrow deepened and I now understood why our intercessor leader, (so moved by Holy Spirit) had us all repent with her on our conference line for two weeks. I began to get a deep revelation of why America was losing her glorious position fast. Deep repentance, by the whole  body of Christ,  will be the only thing  that will stop God from decimating the whole nation in judgement..

I’m getting deep here folks. We have not walked as kings and priests at all, but have been as sloppy and careless as the common folk and worse than that! We may not have transgressed by the awful sins, but we haven’t opposed evil and the injustice of genocide  Rather, we have  cowered like cowards, to lazy to lift up our holy shield of faith! We see that in the last days evil will proliferate and  so mcuh so, even in God’s church.

Paul told Timothy,  But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God— having a form of godliness but denying its power. 2 tim 3 1-5

On the bright side, I’m so grateful for this newly acquired gift of deep repentance gleaned from the  broken prayers of those intercessors I join with every night from 7 to 9 PM. In my 33 years of serving the Lord, repentance has rarely been mentioned. Today, Holy Spirit reminded me deeply that repentance is the first step in healing and there will be no reconciliation  in our lives regarding our broken relationships and/or covenants with each other. Broken covenants proliferate amongst God’s people.. Marriages are held together by a bare thread and the kids are rebellious and disrespectful to their parents. Personal boundaries are trample without the blink of an eye..

Early in this expository, I mentioned how Kings search out a matter. True greatness is pondering a problem and seeking God with all our hearts to resolve the issue and bring about a righteous end. Truly, all of us, if we search deeply enough, will find we’ve missed many areas. We must start to analyze our ways, repent and turn around.  saying I’m sorry  continuously without changing only perpetuates  a damaged area. Christ has called us to be transformed by His Spirit and to apply His  righteous principles to our lives and relationships. We callously disrepect  and dishonor each other by not listen em pathetically and so we wonder why we have no joy. We wonder why we are not prospering as 3 John tells us. We are covenant breakers and many of us do not understand the degree of righteousness and love we need to walk in to abide in the vine!

Diligence is an attribute stressed on the book of Proverbs  Faithfully and persistently honing our character is a sign of greatness. When we ask Holy Spirit continually to Tweak Me, we are seeking to be conformed to His image. We are building excellently on His holy House, which is our breathers and sisters. We must have a conviction to understand the urgency of working hard to keep the unity of the brethren.This is not always easy and many of us have unrequited relationships we should ask God to heap us heal. God’s word tell us to honor each other whether they be the unborn,   military veterans suffering from PTS, the homeless, a family member struggling with a brain-emotional issue, or the elderly neighbor suffering from  dementia.

If we examine Romans 1 28-31, most of us could admit one or several sins taint our love walks. We need to repent of and ask Father for continual cleaning. This is the type of repentance God seeks in His children. His will is for us to rise to the level of  kingly-priestly righteousness. We are to lift up holy hand and a holy, pure heart.  May we diligently search out every matter, especially our hearts…towards our Lord and then to our brethren. Only then, can we walk like a King or Queen.

Heavenly Abba Father, help us to humble ourselves under Your mighty hand. Let us be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to be angry James  1 19&20. . Help us to diligently seek out the depth of an issue, the depth of a person and the depth to which you can heal and reconcile us. Holy Spirit, help us to build bridges and not walls in our relationships with each other. Give us strength to be long-suffering and empathetic.  Most of all, help us, to  be very careful how we build upon your house.and may we choose to build with priceless materials of gold, silver and precious stones, (which are the fruits of the Spirit,  Gal 5 22&23).   In Yashuah Jesus’ matchless name, amen.

PUT UP YOUR DUKES

Strategic Warfare  (Holiness, Fasting and Unceasing Prayer)

I want to discus with you beloved brethren about the  crisis and proliferation of false prophets and false shepherds. YouTube is replete with prophetic posts and words from the Lord. I was very troubles to come across  well-respected Pastor Perry Stone asking Brian Carn to repent. On the right side of the YouTube page were other brethren also calling out Brian. I was very sad to read these other  allegations. Indeed there seems to be a proliferation of people  prophesying Thus saith the Lord.

Truly, we are in very dark times and Jesus told us that there woudl be many false prophets. Today, a sister asked me to respond to her post about the miraculous outpourings of salvation upon the Muslim people and their visions and visitations by Jesus to them. A sister responded that the woman of God who was  ministering to this group was performing eh miracles through satan. Now this is certainly something we need to be aware of and spiritually discerning about. This sister made some very relevant points.

 Many would come in Jesus’ name and would be deceived,  Mat 24:5 2. The word of God is truth’s test. 3. Call them out and warn others.

Bethel Church (Bill Johnson Hillsongs; Brian Houston, Rick Warren, to name just a few) are all in question by man brethren. It certainly is a very  hard things to discern between the true men and women of God and the false. We know that if it were possible, the very elect would be deceived.

Mat 24:24  For false Christs and false prophets will arise and will show great signs and wonders, so as to mislead, if possible, even the elect.

I doubt that any of us are above being deceived, so we need to more than ever fa sat and pray for however long it takes to receive a direct answer from Holy Spirit. After all He is the true reveler

john 16:13 .But when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will show you things to come.

Heidi Baker shared her precious testimony on Sid Roth’s It’s Supernatural program. She seems a woman whose heart was pure and seeking the Lord with all her heart at a very young age. It’s hard to believe that she started out as a “false” prophet. It’s hard to believe that any of the TV Evangelist, prophets or teachers began with impure motives. Most of us start out wanted  God so much with a pure heart. So when and how does the “false” anointing and prophesies come in?

We can discern the truth of a person’s identity by examining their fruit, Jesus said you’ll know them by their fruit. We must also pray unceasingly and with great focus. As satan is incessant in pummeling us with lies and deception, so must we engage. The greatest sin of the pastors and teachers, especially of the mega churches is they are not  grooming their flocks to seek  and revere Father’s presence! the most needful thing for God’s people is to hunger after Him. How many of His children are crying out to sit in His presence and worship? We are in serious trouble, folks. A precious prophetic brother of mine who also struggles with a physical malady share what Holy Spirit gives him. People, Abba God is devastated about the lack of love and hunger His people have for Him. is cup is about to overflow with indignation because weare walking in hypocrisy and sin.

Here is the message Holy Spirit gave to my brother:

“My son, I am bringing a full fledge of My fire upon My church because of the great sin it has committed against Me. I am bringing this fire My son because it is absolutely necessary to burn up the sin which has overtaken the leaders of My church. My fire is necessary My son because of the enormity of sin that is within My holy temple from the leaders to those who sit listening to them. My son, why are there so few calling out for My holiness? My son, holiness is not an option. It is what I require because it reveals the true intent of the heart. It reveals My son those who are for Me and those who are not. My son, why are so few standing up and calling out for My fire? My son, I love My precious church but why doesn’t My precious church love Me anymore?

   My son, My heart aches for the multitudes who have abandoned Me. My son, My temple is supposed to be holy, it is supposed to be pure, it is supposed to be undefiled. My son, My word says that I search to and fro seeking those who are Mine but I am finding so few who have hearts of worship for Me. My son, My priests have abandoned their calling because their calling was first to Me and then to lead My flock but so many have jumped into bed with the world. My body, My precious body My son have no one to lead them because My priests, My leaders have allowed prostitutes into My holy temple, My holy place. My son, what I am sending will not be pretty but is absolutely necessary.

My son tell anyone, tell everyone what I have spoken to you. My son, tell, tell, tell anyone who will listen to you that the hour is so late and I am getting ready now to call those who are My church, who are My precious bride, home. My son, I am asking My temple to rend their heart and not their garments because their garments have been polluted by the sin of this world, the sin of riches, the sin of filthy lucre. How My son did this happen to My precious church? I am calling out right now to My precious body that the time for preparation is over but how many will hear My voice? How many will hear My heart since very few know My heart anymore? My son, the day of preparation is over because the day is at hand for My times of fire. My son, the day of My cloven tongues of fire is at hand. The day and the hour of My fire, the fire of My Holy Spirit which will reveal whose hearts are for Meand whose hearts are not is now at hand.”


This blogs’ message is even more urgent than the last one. Those who are  zealous for the Lord know that the falling away has already occurred and many are being swept away into deep delusion. My heart is sobbing for my brethren who have lost their first love. Every night in bed, in my darkened room, I cry out, “Mercy, Abba, mercy” I know his judgment will come swiftly and His fire burning to a crisp  those who prophets them  with their mouths, but whose hearts are far from Abba. Oh, my, I have to search deeply my own self every day to stay close to Him, to worship in spirit and truth and pray for others to receive the priceless revelation of His majesty and the accessibility into the Holy of Holies…His glorious presence.

Once saved is not always saved and being close to Father, Yashuah and Ruach HaKodesh years ago or even weeks ago is not the same as abiding in His presence. Abiding in Him means to stay connected with him every day and often, with so many distractions and fearful world events, we can very well loose sight of His ever-abiding presence and His hope!

I urge you brothers and sisters, especially if your in a mega-church…to re-assess your relationship with Jehovah Father, Yashuah Jesus and holy Spirit.  The hour is so late, we may not have the next day to repent. We are called to lift up Holy hands. Put away looking at worthless things,  Psalm 119:37 Are you focused on your job, making more money to buy more toys and material things? Are your priorities on your hobbies, refurbishing your car and/or home? Is most of your time spent watching sports and TV?  These ear all “worthless” things which won’t amount to dust  When we see sin, false prophets leading the sheep astray)  we must confront and pray unceasingly. Fast…and pray in the Holy Spirit.

.The bottom line, our life’s mission is to love the Lord with all our mind, soul and spirit and love our neighbors as ourselves. That is how we can fend satan’s blows of deception, idolatry and worldliness. Satan will drag many of God’s people into hell by their selfishness and carnality. It must hurt and anger Father that the meg-churches boast thousands of members, yet there the sheer numbers don’t dent the staggering numbers of poor and homeless people amidst their very cities!.

We can certainly judge by  fruits and the inability of the church to address such abject poverty is a true sign of hypocrisy and sin. There is such a things as overabundance of opulence and wealth (and a mismanagement of stewardship regarding the finances which come in to the coffers.  Is it really needed to have several million-dollar homes and  exotic cars? There is nothing wrong with great wealth, but when it is is hoarded to a high degree, it is somehow evil. Father is watching those who give generously in their alms-giving. And we will be held accountable for our stewardship of our wealth, finances and even our time. Church, we must  immediately get circumspect with our walks because His coming is imminent. If you’re lacking in any point, repent, renounce your greed, sin or apathy and move forward in abundant l worship (to Him)  love and giving.  Living Holy, repentant lives is how we defend ourselves from the wiles of satan.

Holy spirit recently anointed me with a precious new song called Fruits of Repentance.  Jeremiah 616. One of the verses is from Jeremiah 6:16 , “Stand by the ways and see and ask for the ancient paths, Where the good way is, and walk in it; And you will find rest for your souls.  Now if the time for us to get back to the basics, obey His commandments and ask for the old ways…for they are righteous!

Until the church gets a strong revelation of personal obedience and reverance for His presence, many will be shocked when Yashuah says, “”depart from me who work iniquity!”

Many will weep in torment when cast out into utter darkness and eternal separation. My brother or sister, make your path straight. Ask Holy Spirit to examine your walk everyday and listen…and obey. God bless you beloved.

EFFECTUAL, FERVENT PRAYER


 

I was doing my weekly  task of calling the headquarters of the many ministries and political organizations who were constantly sending their requests for donations. Recycling all the unwanted junk mail was a mundane and frustrating task, but  I was making some headway. One such mailing in particular was from the the national Pro Life alliance. I called the number to sequester our name taken off their mailing list.  The lady who answered the phone ( who happened to be the CEO) politely asked me  for my name and address so she could remove us from the mailing list. Suddenly I felt to ask her how her organization was doing with their stop-abortion agenda. Abortion has always been  a burden for me, but now was the perfect reason to blog about it today.

I knew that beside getting our senate and congress compelled to  address abortion head on, I asked her what else they were doing to gain victory.  The concern for the murder of the unborn was also spilling over into the burgeoning medical-scientific research and experimentation of  of stem cell research involving fetuses. I’m troubled that  much of the church seems either uninformed or just plain apathetic about God’s opinion of baby-killing. And that is plainly what it is.

I’ve been journaling since 1977 and have yet to ignore things which  offend, baffle or enrage me.  The slaughtering of the unborn is one thing which ignites a righteous anger and I feel disturbed that only a remnant of God’s people are in an uproar about abortion and   lone wolf atheists opposing everything Christian. I wonder about the condition of the church  in the 70’s. Why didn’t pastors  inform and prepare their congregations for spiritual warfare against the repealing of prayer taken out of schools? It looks like that period was very lukewarm and nonchalant about upholding righteousness and holiness. and sadly, this door opened up to our protective hedge being breached and any foul, evil and destroying entity could now have unlimited access.

What really disturbs me is the mainstream public’s shock regarding the attack on 9/11.  It is ludicrous that many people (probably most of them never set foot in church or had any kind of relationship with Him) had the audacity to be horrified  and angry at God for allowing the fall of the twin towers! Did any pastors or rabbis inform  their people that their parents and grandparents are responsible for allowing the breach by their lukewarmness and apathy towards prayer and the things of God. We need to start addressing our  parents and grandparents mistake and repent for them and ourselves.

Sadly,  America’s destiny has already been sealed and we will have to pay for our  parents  immoral apathy.  Though many of us weren’torn yet or were children or adolescents at the time of the repealing of prayer in schools and the Roe vs Wade, that doesn’t exempt us from making a stand now to stop abortion and infanticide! Untold millions of babies are still be murdered each year and the latest stem cell research.

http://www.rtl.org/prolife_issues/LifeNotes/SacrificedWithoutConsent.html

America’s corporate sin is great and will be retaliated, nevertheless, God’s word says that the son shall not pay for the father’s sins and vice versa. Each one shall  stand in account for his own personal sin and for corporate sins he participated in, (which would also pertain to not doing the right thing when faced with the ability to do so). Gloriously,.  God’s own son has made provision for those who are in covenant with Him and His Son and they alone will be protected and provided for when  the world systems collapses and God’s righteous judgment crashes down. No one will be able to stand His wrath and His wrath is fair.(Selah)

Stop and think for a moment about what occurs doing an abortion. It should be law that every person within the age of consent watch a live video of an abortion. Maybe this is what it will take to open our eyes to the barbarities of these bloody killings.  Maybe one of these  live killing videos will  move our senators, congressmen and judges to boldly address the murder of the unborn. The enemy is alive and well and perpetuating human sacrifices, thus the killing of babies via abortion or stem cell research.

This video is extremely disturbing and you’ll end up weeping for this precious one as I did.  Please pray for these  priceless babies not be butchered anymore. Thank God for Alex Jones and his powerful  documentaries and journaling!

Going back to my phone call with the Pro-life administer, I asked her to explain to me what things were needed to gain victory. She said  the people needed to deluge their  lawmakers, the senate and congress with phone calls and letters.

I thought about this for a moment and pondered that we spend hours on Facebook, watching sports and TV programs and video games, but we can’t spare an hour to make calls or compose a letter to our congressman to remind him that abortion is murder of an innocent unborn baby! I hope someone is being convicted, because I am. God’s people are embroiled in stupid strife,  upset about being “unfriended” and even pastors are focusing their energy on slandering other ministries and/or ministers! People, we need to get focused and compassionate.We will have to stand an account for every idle word we speak, every negative attack-or suspicions we make on others and every sins of omission, ( refusing to do the godly thing, like voting responsibly, electing Goldy leaders and adamantly opposing evil, (in our laws and our constitutional freedoms…which we are apt to lose because most of us just don’t care). We are called to protect the orphans, widows and strangers in their time of affliction! Jesus called us  to be the salt of the earth and a city on a hill, not to acquiesce to one loud mouth atheists who gets hi/her way and gets the job done because of his extreme determination! Where is our determination, folks?!

Let’s not think for a minute that our constitutional freedoms and right to life will exist without strong  opposition.  Satan’s MO is to enslave and  cause misery to all of humanity. So, Jude tells us in 1:3 to contend earnestly for the faith!

Jude could not resist appealing (parakaleo, “exhorting, encouraging”) to his readers that they contend earnestly for the faith. The powerful expression contend earnestly translates a present infinitive (epagonizomai) and stresses the need to defend the truth continually and vigorously (cf. 1 Tim. 1:18; 6:12; 2 Tim. 4:7). It is a compound verb from which the English agonize is transliterated. From Jude’s day until now, true believers have always had to battle for the purity of the salvation gospel.

That being said, it is time for the body of Christ to start contending for righteousness, obedience to God and His commandments and to our calling to be our brothers/sisters keeper. Until we do that, our nation will receive utter devastation. It may be too late for the nation as a whole, but it is not yet too late for His true church to redeem herself by repentance, fasting and prayer.

Come now my brother and sister, let us reason together in the lord and let us receive God’s mercy helping to repeal  Roe Vs Wade and incite prayer in schools and public places.

Prayer:

Father God,  we repent and renounce our wicked nonchalance towards evil, unrighteousness and sin. We cry out for your mercy, even in wrath, (Hab 3:2). Remove our heart of stone and replace it with Your heart of flesh, (Eze 36:26) Deploy your warrior and ministry angels across the United States, the every church, pastor, rabbi, teacher and public servant, every mayor, governor, assemblyman, congressman, senator and  as far as the white house, to war against the spirits of death, violence, apathy,hate, fear and injustice. Holy Spirit, incite your people to get spiritually aggressive against abortion, stem cell research and defending our constitutional rights. We know that time has run out, but perhaps if there are two grains left in the hour glass, let them stay suspended until we have our victory in you. We declare  a shift in the earthly and heavenly realms. We thank you, Father, for once again hearing our fervent and effectual prayers. In Jesus name, we pray, amen.

TIME to CLEAN UP, CHURCH!


large church congregationI write this letter with a HEAVY heart and more than 31 years later! Judgment is coming to America and as Scripture says, Judgment first starts in Abba Jehovah’s own house and people.

I am an intercessor prophetic journalist and worship leader (ordained by Pentecostal-spirit-filled pastor-elders and have been in Fathers service since 1983) passionate for Father God, Yashuah Jesus and especially to see Holy Spirit move, walk in miracles, healing and repentance- revival. My anguished travailing for America’s fate-destiny and particularly, Christ’s Bride, has led me to deep place in Him. Watching Christian TV and seeing many of the famous TV pastors and evangelists with massive congregations, wouldn’t we expect this many people to heavily holily influence our present society, the media and politics. Would our influence change the ever-contaminated sinfulness of our nation After all, Jesus declared us to be a city on a hill.

I came to Christ as a non-practicing Catholic, invited to a small Pentecostal church in Toms River, NJ. A young Jehovah’s witness man wanted to court me, but I felt something wasn’t right with his religion. Father led me to Pentecostalism-spirit-filled life and I was never the same. I found myself transformed in many ways, even though Abba had me endure many fiery trials. Only a year into attending this tiny congregation, (of about 15 adults, 7 children ) our church erupted in a scandal. Our beloved pastor had adultery with 3 of the deaconesses, a homosexual relationship and molested several of the children!! Many of us were so traumatized that we could function for weeks! Many of the new believer left Christ and I watched as their unattended wounds became fodder for atheism and hating all which had to do with Jesus.

Somehow I had an inkling that this Jesus I read about and served was nothing like the leaders I sat under. I continued my joyful evangelism in the nursing homes and hospitals. I was hungry for more of my Jesus. I followed two spirit-filled sisters from my former church to a Monmouth county AG. I rejoiced to once again have a family. (My own blood family was ripped apart by child abuse, foster care and divorce).

I enjoyed about another year with my new family and enrolled in college where I met a charming guy. I was passionate about Jesus and evangelizing wherever I went. The guy was attracted to holy Spirit’s joy in me and we started to spend time together in God’s word and Bible study. Unbeknownst to me, he had some serious baggage. I ended up courting him (in ignorance about being “unequally yoked) . Fast forward to my second deep spiritual wounding. My fiance’s baggage was involvement in the occult and witchcraft. His salivation prayer and baptism of Holy Spirit at a Terry Talbot concert was not enough to deliver him from satan’s grasp. I was caught in a vicious and deadly fight for my spiritual freedom and life!

The shocking thing is that my 60-something AG pastor and his son, (as well as 4 elders and deacons) were unable to cast out a witch-craft-demoniac spirit from my fiance. I was only three years old in my faith and I’d never experienced the hatred , rage and abuse which my fiancé poured on me and from which I couldn’t escape because of his threats to ‘find” me wherever I escaped to and murder me if I didn’t marry him. I ended up being married by this AG pastor. Shockingly, there was no concern nor discernment for my well-being and that they should certainly not endorse a marriage to such a man with such demonic oppression! I can’t tell you what this did for my belief in the “heavenly” Father who is supposed to love and protect me!

Jer 23 1&2 Woe to the shepherds who are destroying and scattering the sheep of My pasture!” declares the LORD. 2Therefore thus says the LORD God of Israel concerning the shepherds who are tending My people: “You have scattered My flock and driven them away, and have not attended to them; behold, I am about to attend to you for the evil of your deeds,” declares the LORD

God help you pastors which have allowed your sheep to be torn and butchered by satan and his demon spirits! I would n’t want to be you when you have to give an account before the GREAT judge Jesus Christ at the bema Seat.

Fast forward to the next phase of my growth. I had enough of the shallowness and lack of true Exousia anointing that I so desperately needed as a victim of child abuse and now domestic violence and abandonment-divorce. I met someone who said that Calvary Chapel in Old bridge was a good church. Though hesitant, I decided to go because I needed fellowship and healing from two bad Christian experiences. Because of my giftings in voice and worship, I connected with the worship pastor, (no name). He saw my love for Christ and my talent as a singer-songwriter and encouraged me to sit under Pastor Lloyd’s teachings. Eventually, I could apply to be one of the worship leaders.

I won’t apologize for the length of this expose because it’s time the sin in AG and other large churches be exposed. This is why America has declined in her godly heritage. I had to share this grievance, (because of a recent wounding-abuse of a beloved brother and AG pastor). He shared his story with me in confidence. Upon praying about this, ( I shared some fo my abuses) Abba compelled me to share this with the body of Christ. So they see the reality of their sin, guilt and repent. The axe is coming down very soon. Who knows whether Father will grant us grace to partake of the great revival harvest. But…there won’t be any harvest or revival with a church that is filthy with adultery, greed for money, controlling-intimidation weaker sheep, apathy regarding the murder or our unborn babies and the stronghold of Homosexuality in our nation.

Brothers and sisters…REPENT and turn from your sin. Ask Holy Spirit if deception has risen as a barrier blocking Holy Spirit’s voice.

What is most urgent here is the necessity to bring more souls into His kingdom. Satan’s MO has surely been to use Father’s pastors and leaders to bar people from getting into the kingdom.

Getting back to Calvary, Old bridge, a few months later, this worship pastor seemed to ignore me anytime I asked about leading worship. I was puzzled at his change of attitude towards me, but was patient. A few weeks later after not seeing him on stage with the worship team, I asked someone what happened to pastor. They told me he was ousted for having an affair with one of the female worship leaders! So much for Calvary Chapel, Old bridge. (BTW, they do not believe in the heavenly Holy Spirit language or prophetic giftings) . I was again devastated and disgusted. I was desperate for fellowship and like-minded believers to sing and evangelize with. I shared my experience with a sister from our former AG congregation and she told me she was attending another AG in another Monmouth county town.

It was great to be back with some of my former sisters. The new pastor and his wife were flowing in the true gifts of the Holy Spirit. I met a wonderful Christian man and was married by this pastor. Then he had to leave about eight months later and another pastor cane. At first, he seemed genuinely led by Holy Spirit. I had to start all over with proving myself as a worship leader and waited for Holy Spirit to reveal my calling to this pastor. I sought Abba’s presence more and more and Father answered my prayer for Holy Spirit to used my gift as worship leader for the edifying of that body.

Several times, I during my leading of worship, (and seeing people’s hearts being moved) that this pastor often would interrupt or quench Holy Spirit’s presence. I felt Holy Spirit being “grieved” and shared my concerns with other worship leaders and elders. They noticed also and were upset. This particular church desperate needed Holy Spirit’s ministry because there was mcuh apathy and lack of discernment, members enslaved to depression and even demonic spirits coming in through its own members! This was a very sick church and there would be no transformation or healing with sin in the camp!

Another sick episode in this church happened with another pastor, (who is now my present pastor, a highly anointed and spirit-filled women of God) The pastor at AG gave permission for her to have a worship service there and upon arriving she saw in t before she could even enter, she had to rebuke and break yokes of demons that were around this AG church!! I was quite surprised when she confided in me. I’ve heard too many horror stories about Kundalini spirits and AG people not having the real Holy Spirit.

The last straw on my back regarding these lukewarm and soon-to-be-judged churches is my dear pastor friend who was ousted for confronting adultery (adultery seems to be a favorite sin and rampant in these churches including AG churches). I met this precious and true man of God through the former-mentioned pastor at the AG church where I led worship. He was convicted by my true anointing and tried to get rid of me by offering me to this pastor friend of mine who was staring a new church in Ocean county. (No names). Strangely, the church didn’t take off and a year later had to be closed.

My pastor friend then took a position at another very large AG church in Ocean county. He was there a while but then a problem arose with the senior pastor having an affair with another woman My pastor friend confronted the leadership about this. He also reported them to AG headquarters. My pastor friend’s wife suddenly died and rather than the leadership of this church supporting him through his loss, he was rebuked, snubbed. (and now black-balled)!!!

I am ( but even more so Jehovah, Yashuah Jesus and Holy Spirit) sick of this evil and sick of all the sin in God’s house. I share this with the AG leadership ( and every church who proclaims Christ as Lord and King of the world) as Holy Spirit leads me so that there can be repentance and healing in the Body of Christ. Yashuah seeks a church without spot or wrinkle and if anyone thinks that He ignores these transgressions, they are very mistaken. I urge you all to repent. My physical body has been severely damaged by all the demonic attacks and trauma while being a part of a Pentecostal-evangelistic AG environment. I still am paying dearly with a neurological condition called Dystonia, no doubt by all this evil and trying to oppose countless and relentless satanic attacks because I desire God’s presence and Holiness MORE than anything in this world, (as well as my pastor friend who I’m helping to strengthen and heal)..

BTW, what ever happened to giving a public apology to the body and to all people?

Please do not ignore this letter or retaliate by unbelief, apathy, or black-balling saints who desire Abba’s presence and desire to be holy. . Christ is coming VERY soon and we’ better repent NOW, clean up our acts and be ready to prepare ourselves as Jesus Yashuah’s virgin bride. Amen and amen!

FALL of AMERICA

IRAQUI ISIS REFUGEES

Here is my response to the latest Hagman & Hagman Report radio broadcast. I highly respect the knowledge and insight you all share with us.
.
The body of Christ, today and (all throughout Biblical history), has taken a Que Sera Sera“ attitude. It really saddens me that few pastors recognize the need for total and drastic act of repentance and a 180 degree turnaround. This happened because of the lukewarm Christian influences of our parents and grandparents who should have changed the course of our nation by opposing the evil trend and the aggressive advances of the atheistic. They succeeded in the banning of prayer in schools and the passing of the Roe VS Wade bill.

All this has precipitated more and more rampant immorality, sex-trafficking, the casual and unprecedented murder of unborn children, pornography and every other abomination condemned by Yahweh God in the law He gave to Moses. We’ve habitually shirked the responsibility to confront and deal with personal and corporate sin, with no concern about the consequences which will affect our children and grandchildren/ We shouldn’t be concerned about loss of our material possessions when the Tsunami of chastisement comes, but breaking covenant with our Holy and gracious Heavenly Father. We have slapped Him in His face with our disrespect and hatred..

For the life of me, I wonder where is compassion and concern for the next generation? Many of us will be dead and/or in glory, enjoying the perfection of heaven, but what about our precious children and grandchildren. I ask all you married men. It is your responsibility as commanded by God to nurture and protect the interests and safety of your wives and children. I pray Holy Spirit will convict every Christian man in America to start fasting and praying in your heavenly language so Holy Spirit will guide your choices as turbulent economic, social and terrestrial changes threatens to transform our lives as we know it today. No doom and gloom here, just analyzing and reminding everyone.

2 Chron. 7:14, If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

God’s “true” children are more than able to impact and change the direction and destiny of this nation, but there are many pious “macho” pastors who delight to see the chastisement and annihilation of the American people), which includes precious children, the elderly, disabled and “good” non-believers). Other brethren who are buried in temporal and tangible endeavors, lusts and/or of activities which have no beneficial value to humanity,(or to their families and communities) have little interest in God’s modern prophets dire warnings to repent and change our ways!

aftermath of HiroshimaAmerica could soon look like this picture of Hiroshima after the first atomic bomb hit. This time, Iran, China or Russia would be glad to be the first to nuke  an American city.
I watch, with great sorrow and anxiety for some inkling of resolve by the church to shift the degree of severity and totality of the approaching tempest. Just research what is happening with Greece . We are next! Why am I so passionate to share this with the body of Christ? Because Jehovah desires mercy and not judgement.

Hosea: 6:6 Therefore I have hewn them in pieces by the prophets; I have slain them by the words of My mouth; And the judgments on you are like the light that goes forth. 6For I delight in loyalty rather than sacrifice, And in the knowledge of God rather than burnt offerings. 7But like Adam they have transgressed the covenant; There they have dealt treacherously against Me.…

Many ask, “How could a loving God be so cruel? Why would God punish with such unquenchable wrath and completeness,”?

The main problem with us is we’ve had so many blessings, are so wealthy and have everything imaginable at our disposal that we believe in that “entitlement” mentality. Our godly forefathers waged a great warfare and paid a great price for our emancipation from the tyranny of England’s monarchy.

I happen to love America, as also my dearest friend, Pastor Augusto Perez shared on His blog radio broadcast. We are both of Latino descent and from the “old” school of life. Augusto’s’ father had to take his family quickly to escape the threatening tyranny of Fidel Castro in Cuba, when he took office on February 16, 1959..Fidel’s ruthless coup d’etat crushed any idea of Cuban families to live and enjoy their former lives! .

In comparison, my father, Teofilo Ferrer Cepeda, a dark-skinned, soft-spoken Puerto-Rican and gifted entrepreneur, sought to give his family a better life in America. He came from a dirt poor background, teaching himself fine skills in graphic art and design. His faith and dreams were rewarded by the great God, Jehovah that he faithfully served, My father taught us to revere the earth God gave us, to have integrity and love hard work. He believed that when attaining wealth or provision through honest, hard work, God would reward.

God ordained work and Adam and Eve were encourage to tend the Garden of Eden. Honest hard work, living withing ones means and appreciation of every blessing and provision seems to be a lost art.

I keep hearing my brethren declare, “God is in control.” And yes He is, but He has also given His people and everyone on earth the responsibility and privilege of choice. The body of Christ can choose whether to say “Whatever, Lord” and make no effort to provide for the widows, the orphans and the broken and set the precedence of righteousness and justice for the oppressed. That neglect is what has brought our Holy and righteous Father to the edge of boiling rage… and that volcano of rage is about to explode!

If only pastors and shepherds would follow the lead of the great Biblical leaders, like Moses, Nehemiah, Ezra and King Jehoshaphat who incepted great reformation and revival during their tenures.It is imperative that God’s modern prophets sound the trumpet and warn the people, but we should have sought first God and studied Nehemiah’s model and direction.

The hour is late. God only knows if America will be here tomorrow.Not

Note: to my loyal readers, please forgive  the typos and errors on my latest post. Something strange has happened ALL day, myriad distractions, and especially this wordpress program seems to have a mind of its own! After going back to read my post, I was horrified to find fragmented sentences, misspellings, and grammar errors, after  wordpress was supposed to recognize and have the typos in RED I don’t know what’s going on, but this looks very bad for an accomplished writer. I hope tthis time, you have a better-edited  revision. Shalom!

Are You In?


A prophetess sister in Christ called me the other day.
“Sister Anita” she moaned, “I haven’t been able to sleep in weeks and I’ve been weeping sore for the church. God has called me to pray for the church, because His ears are weary of our repenting.”

I was shocked to hear this and my heart sank.

After she shared the rest of what God impressed on her heart regarding the impending judgement on America, I asked her to agree withe me in prayer that God’s people would get a swift revelation to “get their houses in order” before that catastrophic tsunami judgement came. Vanessa and I prayed and wept strongly for our brethren, (and especially the pastors) who were in error and apathy to wake up. The spirit quickened her and we knew our prayers were heard.. We weren’t certain that God would give us yet more time to touch souls and to help our back-slidden brethren get it right, but we knew that Father acknowledged our heart-felt prayer.

I was still in shock about God’s opinion of His people, when I got off the phone with sister Vanessa, I was hearing wonderful reports daily from my many prayer groups on Facebook and couldn’t believe that God was not pleased at all with us. Vanessa and my conversation happened this past Sunday.

Last nigh as I lay half asleep, I remembered the materials used in the construction of God’s Holy house. The materials were gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay and straw. 1 Cor. 3:12. As I meditated on this description of these materials, I prayed the materials I used in my building the past 31 years would endure the intense heat of Father’s refining fire. We are God’s building and it should be our daily desire to contribute only those materials which would stand the test of His refining. Scripture tells us that each man will be rewarded for what He has contributed during His journey as God’s child. 1 Cor 3:8

Pastor Ray Thoman, Hia Ministry and a faithful servant of God consistently preaches against the disobedient who build their own kingdoms and ministries apart from God. So it’s hard to reconcile the great miraculous works and miracles my Facebook sisters testify about with Pastor Ray’s “disobedient rebel” messages, thus bringing forth God’s great wrath

Puerto-Rican prophet-pastor, Pastor Ephrain Rodrigues recently gave a chilling and urgent message on his YouTube channel. He said that every ministry in Puerto Rico would be razed! Puerto Rico was the epicenter of judgement which would spread to all the Caribbean islands , (because of their idolatry, witchcraft and voodoo) and then to the United States. I couldn’t believe my ears and immediately started crying and praying for a Holy wake-up call before it’s too late. The punishment would be a huge rock thrown into the sea, causing a massive Tsunami worse than the one that flooded japan!

I have to grieve and wonder why the church is so weak tainted and ripe for almost complete destruction. It boggles my mind that His wrath will come down like an anvil and beyond our comprehension. I asked Father to show me why His people are walking is disobedience and hypocrisy.

FI remember me as an adolescent, living with my parents and sisters. Discord was brewing between my parents and it influencing my two middle sisters. They were always fighting and my impatient, angry mother would explode in a banshee type rampage. She lunged into their rooms like an angry bull and destroyed everything in her sight! Beds were overturned, clothes and toys, were torn apart and she ended her temper tantrum by spilled the pail of dirty water all over everything! Meanwhile, my sisters had locked themselves in another room, cursing her behind the locked doors and threatening her with a phone call to DYFS, (Youth and Family Services)
The more they ranted and raved, the meaner my mother got. She even managed to rile up my father and convince him to sign papers for their foster care placement. It was a terrible situation. My sisters could only react the only way they knew how, with resentment, retaliation and rebelliousness . There could be no compromise or resolution in such a situation and there are perhaps many unsolved issues with God’s own people and their unfit pastors.

That being said, though I’ve touched upon Pastor responsibility in one of my earlier blogs. I stress the need for pastors to try to undo the damage they have done to their flock. I don’t even know if Father will give us extra time and if He does, it will have to be by His miraculous restoring workmanship and revelation to the pastors and shepherds..

I now turn my focus to you, my carnal or back-slidden brother or sister. The hands of the clock are at 11:59,. Are abiding in the vine? John 15:4 I ask you, do you love God and Jesus? Jesus told you, If you love me you will keep my commandments. John 14:15

I’m just as weak and prone to sin as the next person, for the Bible says all my righteousness is as filthy rags. Isaiah 64:6 My relationship with my precious Heavenly, Father and Jesus is such that I can’t bare the thought of disobeying Him our of purposely rebelling or doing evil! Basking in His love each day and meditating on His goodness to me, draws me even nearer and He affirms His love back to me. Throughout the day, I thank Him out loud for every blessing, the hot cup of coffee I’m drinking, the hot running water that flows so freely our of my faucet each day, my warm bed and the heat that comes of the vents. How blessed I am to live in such a comfortable and blessed nation as America!

Before God’s church can walk in Holiness and obedience, they must first have a passionate and loving encounter with their Creator and Jesus Christ, their redeemer. Once one is rightly related to Him, they can have no other desire but to please him. Many salivation prayers to Christ are made in ignorance, glibness or pressure from fear of eternal damnation. Many new believer, (many of which have suffered emotional, physical and spiritual traumas) aren’t established in God’s love and properly nurtured by the others member of the body. Many have been hurt by the sexual abuse of a priest or a legalistic, domineering pastor. Many pastors have no idea the essentialness of providing a nurturing atmosphere for their people.

After my first church broke up, I went through a period of floundering about in isolation, and spiritual insecurity regarding my worth because I wasn’t taught about God’s unconditional and restorative love, nor his provision. God’s people must be taught the basics as babes in Christ or they will grow up like a gnarled, unruly and dry branch of a thorn bush..My saving grace was a prayer our young assistant pastor, brother Leonard prophesied over me several months into my new relationship with Jesus. He said,

“You shall be like a tree planted by the water, spreading out your roots and you will not fear when the heat comes,” That was in 1982 and I have never forgotten that promise. When I have faced the most daunted mountain, I held on to that precious promise. I thank God everyday for the tenderness that Brother Leonard showed me whenever had fears or doubts. I believe that if God had not placed him in my life in that early stage of my relationship with Jesus, I may not be writing this to you today!

Every new-born child of God needs the stability of a loving, but firm pastor or mentor. That is the reason pastors, teachers and leaders will be the most accountable when God’s judgement (at the Bema seat) comes. He will ask us if we fed his sheep, as Jesus asked Peter after his crucifixion. Pastors cannot be led by their own zeal, head knowledge of the word or their formerly worldly habit of hasty surface judgement of men’s hearts and motives! Too much of this shallow religiosity, (such as was applied during the impending stoning of the adulterous woman and if which also the adulterous man was not even called out) There is much hypocrisy in the Christendom’s administration of justice for women, children, foreigners and the poor.

Jesus urged us to count the cost before we attempted to build our house. Part of building that house is righteous judgement and the proper applying of justice for those deprived of it!

As I grew in grace and my relationship with my Heavenly father, He revealed to me the great and precious promises that I had the moment I trusted my life to Him. Over the years, the more I studied His word, the understanding was revealed to me. I took even more seriously the vow I made to Him way back in 1982! The more I sought Him with all my heart the more relevant His word and plan became to me. When I read in the book of Revelation that He will vomit out of His mouth the lukewarm, I trembled in fear. I dread the thought of any possibility that I was living a lie, thinking myself to be righteous, if possibly I was living contrary to what He called me
.
How can one truly know they are walking in obedience and abiding in the vine? I urge you, Beloved today, to take a serious inventory of your life, thought patterns and activities. We are not talking legalism here, but freedom in Christ for He beckons, “Take my yoke upon you, for my burden is light”

We also know that in these last days, the very elect can be deceived and deceived many are because of false prophets all over the internet and leading many of God’s children astray.
How can we truly know that we are His?

1. Delight yourself in the Lord and He shall give you the desires of your heart.
David was a man after God’s own heart despite the fact he made some serious mistakes and committed some serious sin. David chased after God with all His mind, soul and spirit.
Beloved are you chasing God with all your might?

2. Is there any sin (unconscious or generational strongholds from your ancestors) or mindsets that are contrary to God’s word. In other words, if you struggle with debt and poverty, do you continue say, “ I can’t get out of debt or I’ll always be poor” You are speaking contrary to what God promises in His word. God’s truth says, “My God shall supply all your need in accordance with His riches and glory!”

If you are always sick or depressed, find out why. Do you continually say, “I’m getting a cold or flu or call an infirmity as yours, eg my arthritis or my Lupus. Arthritis and Lupus are not from God, they are from satan, so you need to confess that “By Jesus stripes I am healed! Scriptural confession is victory!

Certain sins are obvious, but some preachers do not preach against sin. Whatever the Bible calls sin…is sin. Young person, are you fornicating? Spouse are you having an adulterous affair? Are you committing sodomy, child molestation, perversion? Are you committing deviant behavior and practicing alternative sexual lifestyles? Are you robbing God of His rightful tithes and offerings? Do you gossip or speak negatively about people, (including speaking ill about our pastors behind their backs, other leaders or those in authority or those who have high callings)? We must be very careful of the words that come out of our lips. Are you a glutton? And the big one, do you harbor unforgeveness to anyone who has hurt you? Bitterness, resentment and unforgiveness are three of the biggest stronghold keeping us from fellowship with our heavenly Father. Many illnesses and mental conditions stem from unforgiveness.

Ask God everyday when you first wake up and when you are ready to retire that He would reveal anything you said or did that was displeasing to Him, repent, thank Him and move on! If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 1 John !:9.

At the beginning of each day, I declare, May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in your sight, oh Lord my strength and my redeemer. My desire each day is to be a fragrance to My heavenly Father, to please him in my words and my deeds. When you seek God and desire to please Him, you have no interest to sin or to embrace
any negative strongholds.

3 Beloved, are you disinterested in the things of God and have you stopped spending intimate time with Him? If you said yes, you are lukewarm and I urge you to get back into fellowship with Abba father. He delights with great expectation to receive back His prodigal son or daughter! Why don’t you come back home, dear one? It matters not far you have traveled from His bosom or the multitude of sins you’ve done. All that matters is now! You may not have tomorrow or even the rest of this day. Now is the time of salvation (the real communion with Him) and repentance. Now is your time to be restored!

I remind you pastors who are reading this, who say, “I’ve already preached that judgement is already on its way against the disobedient, but I tell you that we are His sheep…and sheep are stupid! Some immediately understand and obey. Others need to be reminded time and time again. That’s just the way it is.

I pray this blog will stimulate how important God’s lost sheep are to Him. Some of us need great detail, guidance and need to be taken by the hand. That’s why Jesus did nots break a bruised reed, nor quenched the smoking flax. Mat 12:20. He harshly rebuked the judgmental religious-minded Pharisees and Sadducees, but gently restored the wayward broken.

I don’t know how much time we have to fix what is seriously broken. Father has shown me the reason for such error, tragic misalignment of His gracious truth and the ineptness of hasty, but called men and women of God who have not spent the needed time sitting at the feet of Yeshuah, the Savior of the world and the restorer of the breach!.

I implore you pastor, teacher or shepherd to re-evaluate your style of shepherding and make it right to the sheep who you’ve unintentionally or intentionally. If you can’t make it right, repent and ask Father’s forgiveness and trust him to restore the one you may have responded to inappropriately or harshly

I implore you prodigal brother or sister, come back to the fold. We Love you and Father is waiting eagerly to hold you in his bosom. If you don not respond, then Father will have no other choice than to accept your choice of rejecting His precious Son, Jesus sacrifice Ignoring Him as excommunication from His loving Fathership. Time is very short. Father is about ready to take home His own. Many have desired to be holy as He is holy. He is a loving, forging Father, but He is also Holy and we must not only adore Him as a little child, but revere Him. This may be one of the most important blog you will ever read, for it resounds as a clear trumpet warning of the impending gathering that will only include those who truly are His. Are you His? Is He your everything? If not please consider all I’ve shared with you. Heaven will be a place beyond our comprehension and He has already prepared a wonderful place for us to dwell when all the earthly chaos is over with. Come to Him today. Renew Your relationship with Father and this time, mean it and walk in it!
