Wanted: Faithful Men

 Lately we have seen some leaders of large churches fall down.

They honestly had what it takes to build those large churches.

Even so they were lacking in the prime ingredient that God highly regards in all of us.

It is not how much we are anointed, it is not how well we can teach, it is not our personalities,and it certainly is not the greatness of the gifts that we walk in in the Lord.

There is currently a man of God under siege, who took over the pulpit of a pastor who recently went on to be with the Lord.

This man has the prime ingredient. 

So then what is this prime ingredient that is in us that so pleases the Lord?

Today's lesson will address these things; so read on if you want to know the answer...


  Several things happen when you move into a new realm in the spirit.

On the new level the battles will be much more bitter and more disrupting to principalities and powers.

The churches enter into a greater burden for prayer and intercession, and the intercession is more effective.

Another thing takes place with the coming of a new level; you find that your old level of dedication is inadequate.

  A new level demands a new level of love in order for the Body to function.

If you have greater revelation, you must have greater love.

If I do not know much about an individual and his needs, I am not being tested to judge him; but if I know a great deal about him, I have to be moved by greater love, or I will find myself becoming critical of him and judging him.

God does not give you revelation over a man in order for you to judge him.

The Spirit of the Lord shows you his need for a positive reason; you are to help the brother and have a greater love for him.

  The same thing is true of the gifts of the Holy Spirit.

For some time we have been able to prophesy and sing psalms, but suddenly the prophecies are not adequate for the level we are on.

The gifts are not moving as efficiently as we need them to move on a new level.

So the question is often raised, "How do I go about getting a greater ministry? How can I see my ministry function in the level upon which I am walking now?"

We are always trying to catch up to the new open doors that the Lord lays before us.

  I find this is true in my own case.

I have never appropriated so much from the Lord as I have recently.

I understand something now that I have not previously seen.

When a new level of utterance begins to come, I find that I am assaulted harder than ever before.

Lately, I find that I am depending completely on the Lord for strength, for the ability to speak and to be able to function on the level that God sets before me.

  You will have to do the same thing.

Pastors will find that they need a greater anointing.

Brothers will find that to prophesy and minister will require a greater meeting with the Lord.

Therefore it is essential that the Lord remind us of the basic truths.

  How does a man come into a greater gift?

By the extreme faithfulness of his heart to walk in each level.

There is no short cut.

God will not give you a greater ministry or gift until you are faithful with what He has given you.

Four times in the New Testament a man named Tychicus is mentioned.

Tychicus was part of the early apostolic company.

Twice Paul referred to him as the beloved brother and faithful minister- in Ephesians 6:21 and Colossians 4:7.

  In the Old Testament also, we can trace the theme of faithfulness to God ( Daniel 6:10 ) .

Moses was a man faithful in all of his His house ( Hebrews 3:2 ) .

The prophecies about Samuel show how faithful he was.

Abraham was faithful before God.

In the New Testament, Epaphras, Onesimus, Paul, Sylvanus, Gaius, and Timothy are mentioned.

The principal quality that is mentioned is their faithfulness.

It does not say that they were great prophets.

Instead , when the Word of God wants to commend a man, the only reference we find about him states, "This man was faithful."

  If the man was not reputed to be faithful, then they speak about his ministry.

After John Mark caused the separation of Barnabas and Saul on the second missionary journey, Paul sent for him saying, "He is profitable to me for the ministry" ( II Timothy 4:11 ) .

He could use him to minister.

  As far as I can recall or discern, not very many men had any qualification mentioned except that they were faithful to it.

Paul wrote to Titus: "For this reason I left you in Crete, that you should set in order what remains..."
 ( Titus 1:5 ) .

He was implying that because Titus was a faithful man, he would faithfully do what God set before him to do.

It is not the greatness of the gift you are walking in that matters.

God is looking to see if you are faithful.

After speaking about Apollos, Peter, and himself, Paul wrote  in I Corinthians 4:1,2: Let a man regard us in this manner, as servants of Christ, and stewards of the mysteries of God. In this case, moreover, it is required of stewards that one be found trustworthy.

(King James reads "faithful," which is a synonym.)

  A steward of the mysteries of God should be found faithful to the Lord.

This is required.

I am giving my whole life to the word that God has given me, and I am very much in awe at the vast extent of it.

The revelation keeps coming on an ever-increasing depth.

In my own estimation, the ministry of the word that is coming now is the most important thing that God has committed since the days of the early Church.

And I say that very humbly.

  Other ministries may move in many things, but the foundation word of the Kingdom that has been coming for years is very important.

I feel that I am a steward of the mysteries of God.

God has made the word alive.

When people hear it or read it, they recognize that truths are being revealed to them that they have never seen before, God is bringing a new depth of revelation.

  I suppose there may be people who could surpass me when it comes to actual knowledge of the Scriptures, but I have been faithful.

I have been a faithful steward of the mysteries which God has committed to me.

This is what God requires.

He does not look for superior intelligence or superior gifts.

If you are faithful, God will bless you and bring you into what He has for you.

It will be exceedingly precious.

The gifts of God in their greatness and magnitude are not lavished upon those who have the greatest human ability.

  There is the constant pressure of the enemy to bring discouragement.

Does he try to tell you that you do not have a ministry?


Does he try to tell you that you cannot prophesy and worship?


Does he tell you that the walk with God is false?

Once in awhile he does, but usually the people do not accept that sort of thing.

He tries to put pressure on you for one reason: he wants you to become discouraged so you will be unfaithful to the Lord.

He knows that he can at least contain you, if not utterly defeat you, if you are not faithful to the Lord.

  We have heard much about the judgment seat of Christ ( and frankly, it is not just applicable to the time of Christ's coming; I think we are constantly before His judgment seat ) .

What does He judge us for?

Will we be judged for our sin?

On that final day, you will already have applied the blood of Jesus Christ to your heart for your sins.

The judgment for sin has been transferred to the cross of Jesus Christ.

He died in your stead and took care of all the past sins and even of the sin condition in your heart as you endeavor to walk by faith with the Lord.

His death also made possible an instant deliverance and forgiveness for every sin that you would commit in the process of seeking for His righteousness and perfection.

What then remains that you can be judged for?

If all your sins are transferred to the Lord and there is no condemnation to them who are in Christ Jesus, then what will you be judged for?

  You must understand that your present existence is the occasion of testing and of judgment to determine your position in the Kingdom that is to come.

If you have been faithful, then He will make you a ruler over many cities ( Luke 19:17 ) .

It is the faithfulness of your heart that He looks upon.

In this hour, the ministry of authority can only be committed to faithful men.

  You therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus. And the things which you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses, these entrust to faithful men, who will be able to teach others.

Timothy was to commit the things he had learned to faithful men, because a faithful man will take what is committed to him and enlarge upon it.

God will increase it and that man will be able to teach others also.

  Paul goes on to speak about the by-products of a faithful heart.

 You then, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus.

  And the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable people who will also be qualified to teach others. 

 Join with me in suffering, like a good soldier of Christ Jesus. 

No one serving as a soldier gets entangled in civilian affairs, but rather tries to please his commanding officer. 

Similarly, anyone who competes as an athlete does not receive the victor’s crown except by competing according to the rules. 

 The hardworking farmer should be the first to receive a share of the crops. Reflect on what I am saying, for the Lord will give you insight into all this.

Remember Jesus Christ, raised from the dead, descended from David. This is my gospel, 

 for which I am suffering even to the point of being chained like a criminal. But God’s word is not chained. 

10 Therefore I endure everything for the sake of the elect, that they too may obtain the salvation that is in Christ Jesus, with eternal glory.

11 Here is a trustworthy saying:

If we died with him,
    we will also live with him;

12 if we endure,
    we will also reign with him...

II Timothy 2:1-12.

Whatever suffering comes, whatever God lays before you, you are going to endure it faithfully.

  I can look back upon years in which we had nothing at all, yet we were faithful even during some hard times.

I can remember , as a young evangelist in the middle of the depression, becoming very discouraged; we were barely able to keep body and soul together.

We always seemed to be poor and the objects of charity.

It was very difficult.

About the time things got a little better, the Lord would lead us to start a new church.

God prolonged the hardship and sacrifice year after year.

Now a life of sacrifice means nothing to us, and God blesses in an outstanding way.

  I believe God allowed these testings for a purpose.

Today He sees that I am a faithful steward.

Has He committed to me a lot of riches?

No- yet in a sense He has.

He has committed to me the administration and faithful stewardship of a great deal of money and property and equipment.

Much of what we have today in the way of facilities was given to us because God counted a lot of us faithful.

God gave us the faithfulness and wisdom to see that every dollar was administered with a faithful stewardship.

We have completely outgrown the Living Word Building; every inch is being used as efficiently as anyone could devise.

What are we doing there?

We are actually moving a world.

Before long, The First Principles will be printed in Japanese and in a second Philippine dialect.

  The Word is going out with anointing.

Yet we constantly feel the pressure to withdraw from the intensity of the battle.

To get the pressure off, all you have to do is walk away from a walk with God.

The pressure will lift and you will feel fine for a while, until it dawns on you how defeated you really are.

  You are a soldier on the front line.

You are to suffer hardship as a good soldier of Jesus Christ, not entangled with the affairs of this life.

You want to please Him.

You want to be faithful.

There will be a time to build palaces and a time to sit under your fig tree.

There will be a time to beat your sword into a plowshare and your spear into a pruning hook, but right now is not the time.

Now is the time to get the sword and go out as a good soldier of Jesus Christ until this battle is ended.

Do not collect extra baggage and possessions that will not be important.

  What do we do next?

We are going to be faithful to the Lord.

We will walk in what God sets before us without murmuring or complaining.

We are going to do His will.

  I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has strengthened me, because He considered me faithful, putting me into service ( he means "ministry" ) , I Timothy 1:12.

The apostle Paul was not chosen by the Lord for his excellence of ability.

At no time did he ever lean upon what he had known or learned before.

He was able to forget those things which were behind ( Philippians 3:13 ) .

When he stood before a congregation such as the Corinthians, he said, "I was with you in much weakness and trembling.

I did not want your faith to stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God" ( I Corinthians 2:3,4 ) .

He wanted to be faithful in ministering the anointing of the Lord.

He wanted to speak with the anointing of the Spirit in order to bring forth spiritual results that would stand.

He was very careful not to use the wisdom of man because the cunning of man could also bring deception to them.

He said, "The Lord strengthened me" ( II Timothy 4:17 ) .

  Paul was able to endure hardships and he encouraged young Timothy to do likewise.

As a soldier, Paul endured shipwrecks, beatings, imprisonments, hunger, nakedness, and great peril.

Men tried to assassinate him.

He was beaten unmercifully.

Where did Paul get the strength to endure all of that?

An ordinary man would have perished.

He said, "The Lord has strengthened me because He counted me faithful" ( I Timothy 1:12 ) .

A man is only required to be faithful to the Lord.

If you are faithful, you will never face anything that God will not give you grace to meet.

However, you will become the source of your own defeat if you are an unfaithful man.

When you draw back from the thing God sets before you, you cut off the life line of divine virtue and strength.

But if you are faithful and do not turn aside, God will bless you and strengthen you.

  Your position in the Kingdom that is to come will be based upon your faithfulness in this transition period now.

God is the One who is called Faithful and True, and as you set your heart to be faithful, you will appropriate His faithfulness.

  Are you now aware of your own vacillation and wavering?

As the word comes, telling us to be faithful, are you thinking of the ups and downs in your walk before the Lord?

Ask the Lord to cleanse you and minister that precious fruit of the Holy Spirit which is faithfulness.

Turn your heart away from the thing that would cause you to waver when the pressure is on.

If you would weary with the foot soldier, how will you contend with the horsemen ( Jeremiah 12:5 ) ?

If we stumble now in these days, what will we do when the pressures are increased a hundredfold?

Let us be faithful now so that we will have the strength to endure when that day comes.

The War On Journalism Means That Bloggers Will Become More Vital To The Circulation of News

The AP (here, carried by the San Francisco Chronicle) reports that
recorded conversations reveal flight restrictions requested in August by
 the police force of Ferguson, MO, and agreed to by Federal aviation
safety officials, were specifically intended to limit the access of journalists
 to the area, rather than purely in response to safety concerns.

 One FAA
 manager in Kansas City was recorded saying police "did not care if you
ran commercial traffic through this TFR (temporary flight restriction)
all day long.

They didn't want media in there."

"There is really ... no option for a [Temporary Flight Restriction]
that says, you know, 'OK, everybody but the media is OK,'" he said.

managers then worked out wording they felt would keep news helicopters
out of the controlled zone but not impede other air traffic. 

The conversations contradict claims by the St. Louis County Police
Department, which responded to demonstrations following the shooting
death of 18-year-old Michael Brown, that the restriction was solely for
safety and had nothing to do with preventing media from witnessing the
violence or the police response. 

Police said at the time, and again as recently as late Friday to the AP,
 that they requested the flight restriction in response to shots fired
at a police helicopter.
But police officials confirmed there was no damage to their helicopter
and were unable to provide an incident report on the shooting.

 On the
tapes, an FAA manager described the helicopter shooting as unconfirmed

The war on Journalism continues.


Save The Earth From Toxic Chemical Raids Now

Will we be able to stop the geoengineering of our climate in 2015?

The people who are aware tried to stop the insanity in 2014.

They will be trying again in 2015.

At an international symposium held in Ghent, Belgium May 28-30, 2010, scientists asserted that “manipulation of climate through modification of Cirrus clouds is neither a hoax nor a conspiracy theory.” It is “fully operational” with a solid sixty-year history. Though “hostile” environmental modification was banned by UN Convention in 1978, its “friendly” use today is being hailed as the new savior to climate change and to water and food shortages. The military-industrial complex stands poised to capitalize on controlling the world’s weather. 

"It's absolutely inappropriate for a handful of governments in industrialized countries to make a decision to try geo-engineering without the approval of all the world's support," Pat Mooney, from Canada-headquartered advocacy organization ETC Group, told Reuters on the sidelines of the October 18-29 meeting.

The people in charge of the geoengineering know that the world's citizens are coming after them and they are seeking to obtain immunity from prosecution for destroying the ecology of planet earth!

Could You Please Pass The Salt And Pepper

Today's study is another amazing meaty spiritual meal for the mature in Christ.

Babes in Christ are also invited to this steaming hot sumptuous meal that is being freely set before you.

You will learn that all authority and all things are found in Christ.

And that through the Holy Spirit, will be given to you who come to His feast and dine at His table!


We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not despairing; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed; always carrying about in the body the dying of Jesus, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body.

For we who live are constantly being delivered over to death for Jesus sake, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our mortal flesh.

So death works in us, but life in you.

II Corinthians 4:8-12

  We need to understand two things here.

There are ways in which the history of Christ- everything that happened to Him- must become very real to us.

When His experiences are just a human history, we fall into the dead traditions that have plagued the Christian churches for many years.

The history of Jesus is made real to us when it is brought forward from the past by the Holy Spirit.

The Holy Spirit will make His experiences real to us so that they become a present reality.

Without the reality, there remains a deadness which follows the line of theology where things that Christ went through are very vivid in the mind and the historical Christ is very real.

  We do not actually follow that line of theology.

We are concerned about the experiences of Christ, through the Holy Spirit, becoming real to us as we identify ourselves with them.

The experiences of Christ must be an operative real experience within us.

Otherwise, we have tradition without present experience.

Then we would be trying to reach back to identify with the tradition.

That is not enough for us.

The Holy Spirit has to take what was real in the life of Jesus Christ and cause it to become real with us now.

Unless we can identify ourselves with the life of Christ in the present reality, it has no meaning for us at all.

In our walk with God we have rejected just an historical position in our religion and in our faith.

We have come to believe that it must be real to us now.

The life of Christ has to be something that we can experience and live.

It has to be a present reality.

And because of that, by the work of the Holy Spirit, we can believe in the extension and the expansion of that reality in the future.

  The reason many churches do not believe in miracles is that their faith is based entirely on the history of Christ, not on the present experience.

They believe the Bible from cover to cover- historically.

They believe that it really happened, but they do not believe that it is happening now.

I believe it is to happen now.

Hebrews 13:8 tells us, Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today, yes and forever.

We have to believe that!

He is real for us today.

We believe in the history of His life; but as we identify with that history, we believe it is being continuously brought forward from the past- not as a tradition or a history, but as a very present reality and an experience in our lives.

  We read in the Scripture that death is working in us.

That is true, because in the experience that we have, we are actually moving in two directions: we are believing for crucifixion and for creation.

We are believing that death has to work in us.

We are constantly being delivered over to death, for Jesus sake, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our mortal flesh.

We believe that the history of Jesus has to be real.

We have to identify with His death so that there can now be a death working within us.

Unless there is a death working in us, everything in this walk with God is hopeless.

If the self-life is not dying out because of the crucifixion of Christ working in us, there is no reality in this at all.

We go along, singing in the Spirit, having a wonderful time in worship, but one day we wake up to the fact that the self-life is alive, and the walk with the Lord is not working.

The Holy Spirit comes to make the past real to us, as well as to identify us with the future.

We must see that.

The walk has to be related to the past- not the past traditions, but the past history of Jesus- so that in our lives we can have the reality of being crucified with Christ and being risen with Christ.

Unless there is a working of death in us, there is nothing.

  You have to believe that the lust of the flesh can die.

You must believe that the greed and selfishness can die.

You must believe that the whole carnal way of human thinking can die.

You do not reach out with a supreme confidence that you can accomplish something by the discipline of the flesh, but you reach back to what Jesus was and what He did, and you literally believe that the Holy Spirit makes that alive in your life now.

  We are carrying in our bodies the dying of the Lord Jesus Christ in order that the life of Christ can be manifested in us.

There can be no new creation without the crucifixion.

Unless there is the dying of the flesh life, there cannot be the creation of the Christ life and nature coming forth in us.

We must never forget this, lest we begin to reach in and try to discipline and work things out, becoming a great movement, but failing completely.

It is all based upon this death and life from the past working in us, as well as the future being made real to us.

  In John 16:7-15, we read what the Lord told His disciples concerning the Holy Spirit, "But I tell you the truth, it is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper shall not come to you; but if I go, I will send Him to you.

And He , when He comes, will convict the world concerning sin, because they do not believe in Me."

Here, you see, He goes back into the past.

Everything has to go back to the history of Jesus.

The Holy Spirit must make it real.

There are people who say that Jesus was a good man, that He was a good teacher; but that is not enough.

You must believe that Jesus is the Son of God, that He came as the incarnate Son of God in the Flesh.

  It begins because the Holy Spirit comes to convict the world of sin and of righteousness and of judgment.

This is the whole basis of it.

"And concerning righteousness, because  I go to the Father, and you no longer behold me."

There is no awareness of sin, and there is no awareness of righteousness apart from the coming of Christ.

When Christ came, He was One who knew sin.

You cannot believe in righteousness unless you believe that God made Him to be sin for you, in order that you might become the righteousness of God in Him.

You would have nothing if the Lord Jesus Christ had not come upon this earth.

The Holy Spirit has to make this real to you.

  Frequently we are asked whether we really believe the Bible as the fundamentalists do.

We actually believe it much more. because we not only have to start in the past and believe the history of it and that it all happened then, but we have to believe that Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.

We do not have any present, and we do not have any future, unless we have Him in our past.

So we reach back and we believe.

  "Concerning judgment, because the ruler of this world has been judged.

I have many more things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now"

(which indicates a present limitation the disciples had).

"But when He, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth"

( notice that: He will guide you into all the truth!);

"for He will not speak on His own initiatives, but whatever He hears, He will speak; and He will disclose to you what is to come"

(That is the future.)

"He shall glorify Me; for He shall talk of Mine, and shall disclose it to you.

All things the Father has are Mine; therefore I said, that He takes of Mine, and will disclose it to you."

  Let me paraphrase this passage for you.

The Holy Spirit comes and gives us all the truth.

What is the truth?

The Holy Spirit reveals to us the truth about the Lord Jesus Christ- how He suffered, how He died, how He rose again, how the Father committed all things into His hand.

The Holy Spirit reveals His commission, His mighty victory and exaltation.

We have nothing until we see that.

  Anything that has much value or anything that can be transacted, whether in the spirit realm or in the financial realm, must have a basis.

We know that right now we are facing many difficulties in the financial realm.

Since 1964 there have been no silver certificates to support our currency.

No longer is there a claim that it can be redeemed for silver, and certainly not for gold.

In spite of our being a wealthy nation, there is not enough money in Fort Knox to cover our currency or our outstanding commitments abroad.

So here we are, in a rather precarious situation.

The Federal Reserve System releases many millions of dollars to try to make a little looser money, but this only aids in creating more inflation.

Inflation has become the big problem, and it will continue to be a problem all over the world because there is nothing of value behind the money any-longer.

  A similar situation exists today in many churches.

Nothing is happening because there is nothing behind what they do.

There is no spiritual gold, no spiritual silver.

The Holy Spirit has to show us all things that the Father has are Christ's.

All authority in heaven and in earth is His.

We must see what the Holy Spirit is making real in the history of Jesus so that He shines as the great source of all spiritual wealth.

In Him lie all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.

In Jesus Christ is all authority in heaven and in earth.

The Holy Spirit must make this real to us first.

Until we see Him as Lord, as the mighty exalted One in whose hand is everything, in whom there is no lack, we cannot see Him in our present position.

The Holy Spirit takes that which was provided a little more than nineteen hundred years ago and makes it real.

  He planned it in eternity past, executed it in the fullness of time, and now He says, "All authority in heaven and earth are Mine. Go ye therefore" ( Matthew 28:18,19 ).

The Holy spirit works with us constantly to bring forth that authority.

And so we cast out devils and do other things in His name.

Why do most churches fail to move in this?

Because they do not accept that supreme, absolute authority of Christ.

The Holy Spirit's present mission is to bring forth Christ's authority in the believer.

In John 16:7, the King James version says, ...It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you. 

He is going to take all of this and make it real to us.

  The Holy Spirit is given to us to make all of the historical facts of Jesus' life a present enrichment and experience for us.

But it does not end there; it is projected then into the truth.

He will show us things to come.

...Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared 

( notice the past tense; hath prepared )

for them that love Him.

But God hath revealed them unto us by His Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.

Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. 

I Corinthians 2:9,10,12.

The Spirit brings that history out of the past, making it a part of our present, projecting us into the unbelievable future that Christ has provided.

  Oh, the marvelous work of the Holy Spirit!

How precious, how wonderful it is for us to be led by the Spirit of God.

Without this, we do not have the walk with God.

The walk has to be based upon reading the Word, seeing who Christ is and what He has provided for us.

Then we must understand that He has given us the Holy Spirit to bring us into the same identical experiences with Christ, to enrich us in Him, to show us the things to come, and then to open the door to the unlimited future.

May God enrich your walk with Him, by making the reality of His Son Jesus Christ a present living Savior, born anew in your heart this Christmas by the Holy Spirit.

Why Bother Praying

This is just one element of some of the things being researched in todays military technology I would imagine.

The Hutchison effect along with the Lorentz effect and the Cosimir effect make for some very interesting advanced applications possibly being investigated in todays military technology quest.

The battle field will never be the same once they figure out how to harness these effects for their military usage.

Some on Youtube believe they are already using strategically placed Tesla Tech Arrays to produce what normally would be naturally occurring phenomenon, only now at the hand of man.

Others believe on Youtube that the twin towers were subjected to some of these effects.

Science fiction is fascinating.

Dick Tracy was well in advance of his generation with his watch communicator and his flyingImage result for dick tracy cylinder etc.

But there still is nothing as powerful as the power of faith based prayer.

Prayer is the atomics of God.

One person praying can bridge the gap.

2 Chronicles 16:9King James Version (KJV)

For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to shew himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him. 

Ezekiel 22:30 [Full Chapter]
And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none.

I wonder how many Christians are standing in the gap to stop the chemical spraying of our skies of planet earth?

I wonder how many Christians are praying for America and her leadership?

I wonder how many Christians are storming heaven for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit in power for the salvation of others?

The most powerful force we are entrusted with, prayer.

And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always
 to pray, and not to faint;

Jesus made it known that we should always pray.

Not just so we could feel good, or that we might be occupied with something to do.

But praying as a powerful force for change.

Jesus believed in prayer and He often prayed.

There is something deep and hard to grasp and define about prayer. Way beyond the physics of the above mentioned physical effects.

Prayed goes deeper and prayer goes directly to the source of all life, the Master Creator, the One who but speaks and it exist.

The one who says to all of us:

Isaiah 55:11King James Version (KJV)

11 So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.
This is why prayer is so powerful, because it goes to the only One who can but speak a Word and it shall be.

The prayer in and of itself is not the power, the One to Whom it is directed is the power.

Satan would have everyone believe that prayer is useless babble, just a religious ritual , an activity of no great importance. 

2 Corinthians 10:4King James Version (KJV)

(For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)

Prayer, mighty through God.
Because it is God the creator, the One who only has to speak and it is, that all prayer is directed to.
Prayer is backed by Him, if it is according to His will then we have the answer to our prayers.
We know that if we are praying for the salvation of someone they will indeed get saved because God is willing that no one perish.

2 Peter 3:9King James Version (KJV)

The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

Don't let Satan rip you off.

Keep faithfully praying.

1 John 5:15King James Version (KJV)

15 And if we know that he hears us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.
Prayer, the atomics of God.

Want To Be Religious?


Restrict the spirit of man.

Restricting or limiting the work and ministry of the Holy Spirit by removing the gifts and callings of God is a very effective device used by Satan to block the power of God’s Spirit from working with the spirit of man. 

It stops young people from pursuing the truth of supernatural things from God and attributes them to the devil.

When religious Christianity restricts the five fold ministry of Ephesians 4:11 to only three, they automatically limit the gifts of the Spirit to the 1st century church leaving the younger generation of today with nothing more than dead religion.

 The ‘Born again’ spirit is quenched by doctrines of demons that rob new believers.

The dead works of predictable religion are in direct opposition to Romans 11:29, “For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance.” 

God has not changed his mind about giving all nine gifts of the Spirit that are listed in 1 Corinthians 12:8-10; nor has he revoked any of the five callings of Ephesians 4:11.

According to the WORD OF GOD, the Son of God ascended far above all heavens, that he might fill all things (Ephesians 4:10). 

Now that he has ascended, he fills all things. The scripture does not say that he empties all things, or deletes anything. It says he fills all things.

The context of Ephesians 4 is that God gave gifts and callings to the church after Jesus ascended. 

It does not speak of the gifts and callings that were already in place prior to his ascension. 

The twelve apostles of the Lamb were already made apostles before Christ’s ascension.

 When God gave some apostles and prophets to the church for the perfecting of the saints and for the work of the ministry it was without question after the ascension.

If the church was already perfected it would not be in need of apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors or teachers. 

They are given by God for the perfecting of the saints and they will remain in place until such time that, whatever the Bible means by perfection, is complete.

We know that when Jesus comes again we will be like him. 1 John 3:2 “Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not appear what we shall be: but we know that when he shall appear, we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is.”

When does this perfection take place? It cannot happen until Jesus appears. The answer is in the verse “when he shall appear.”

I Corinthians 13:9-10 says, “For we know in part, and we prophecy in part. But when that which is perfect (Jesus) has come, then that which is in part shall be done away.” 

 The Bible is the perfect Word of God, but until the return of Christ the perfect Word of God will not have had its completed perfect work within us.

It is not the Bible that is being perfected, it is us.

The perfecting of the saints is a process. 

 “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind” (Romans 12:2).

This renewing process is by the washing of the water of the word, but it is not the word that is being washed for perfection.

 It is the church that God is perfecting, “That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word.

 That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish” (Ephesians 5:26-27).

God has not, and will not remove the gifts and callings that he has given to the church until the church age is complete.

 What he began, he will continue until the appearing of his Son. 

 “For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.” 

 That can only happen when we see Jesus, as 1 Corinthians 13:12 states, “face to face.” 

Religion changes the words ‘face to face’ to mean ‘cover to cover’ and say that the Bible, since it is perfect, has replaced the gifts and callings of God.

“Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption” (1 Corinthians 15:50). 

The Bible will not change from corruption to incorruption, nor will it inherit the kingdom of God.

 It is us, the saints of God who are made perfect, when as 1 Corinthians 13:10 declares, ‘that which is perfect is come’.
Therefore my beloved brethren, be steadfast, unmovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord and don’t let anybody tell you that the gifts and callings of God have been revoked.
