WHAT GOD is REALLY LIKE-by David Wilkerson

 UPDATE-After I just Posted this word, I saw in my email Sparks devotion, the exact word, I guess the lord wants us to get this in our hearts-Will add Sparks at the end.

In the Old Testament, God's people forsook him again and again, yet each
time he restored them and blessed them incredibly. The Lord had every
right to give up on Israel, but he remained ever faithful to them.
Nehemiah sums up this wonderful truth about God's nature:

"After they had rest, they again did evil before You. . . . Yet when they
returned and cried out to You, You heard from heaven; and many times You
delivered them according to Your mercies. . . . Nevertheless in Your great
mercy You did not utterly consume them nor forsake them; for You are God,
gracious and merciful" (Nehemiah 9:28, 31).

The prophet Isaiah knew this aspect of God's nature. Like Moses before
him, Isaiah preached about God's judgment against sin. He spoke of dark
days of despair to come upon those living in continual rebellion. Yet amid
one of his most direct messages, Isaiah stopped to make this statement:

"I will mention the lovingkindnesses of the Lord and the praises of the
Lord, according to all that the Lord has bestowed on us, and the great
goodness toward the house of Israel, which He has bestowed on them
according to His mercies, according to the multitude of His
lovingkindnesses" (Isaiah 63:7).

Everywhere Isaiah turned he saw backsliding and apostasy in Israel. Yet,
despite this, Isaiah looked into his heart and recalled a revelation of
what God was truly like. And he began praising God for his faithfulness:
"Oh, Lord, we have rebelled against you and turned from your Holy Spirit.
Save us again by your great mercy. Stir up your compassion toward us. You
are full of lovingkindness."

Later the prophet Joel gave dire warnings, but even as he prophesied about
massive earthquakes and the darkening of the sun and moon, he suddenly
began speaking of God's loving nature:

"Return to the Lord your God, for He is gracious and merciful, slow to
anger, and of great kindness" (Joel 2:13).

Beloved, there are times when we need to remember this revelation of the
Lord's mercy for ourselves.

*October 19*

/I love you with an everlasting love. (Jeremiah 31:3 GW)/

"I/ /have borne with you all this time because I love you; anything
could have happened to you, but I have not let it, I have shown you
infinite longsuffering and patience, and earnest solicitude for your
eternal well-being: because I love you, I have kept you alive, and
have brought you to this time and to this place; I have not let you
go." Oh, that this might come home to us! We may, all unconsciously,
be hearing this message now simply because of this infinite love of
God which has been preserving us unto this hour to let us know it. You
may think it is quite fortuitous that you are hearing it - just one of
the chance happenings of life; but if you knew the truth it is this
infinite love of God which has held you to this time in relation to
the infinite purposes of that love to let you know it.

There is-
nothing casual about it, there is sovereign love here. "Because I have
so loved, because, self-sufficient as I am, I cannot do without you" -
oh, mystery of Divine love! - "because I so much wanted you I created
you, and now at this moment I am drawing you." We cannot take that in,
but that is the teaching of the Word of God... God does not want that
kind of love that is not love at all because it gets everything that
it wants to satiate its own lusts. That is not love. This love of God
must make us like itself, it must be after its own kind. And so,
strangely enough, many have come to find the love of God through the
dark way of suffering - to discover that God was not their enemy but
their friend, when they thought that He was pursuing with the object
of destroying them....

Listen again, whoever you may be. If you know yourself only a little
you must be amazed at this statement, but if it does not come to you
as the most wonderful thing that ever was or could be, there is
something grievously the matter with you; that such a One should say
to such as /WE, "I have loved THEE, with an everlasting love." /May
God Himself bring that home to us with something of its implication,
something of its meaning and value, its glory, its wonder.

If He-
should graciously do that, we shall be worshipers for the rest of our
lives; there will be something about us that is in the nature of awe
and wonder and we shall go softly. The realization of it will smite
all our pride to the dust. There is no room for pride here. This will
remove all those horrible things - pride, avarice, covetousness,
self-interest, worldly ambition - and we shall be very humble, very
grateful people, full of a great longing somehow to requite that love,
somehow to win for that One His rights.

By T. Austin-Sparks from: "His Great Love" - Chapter 5

Deputy gives warning about planned ANTIFA Nov 4th Event / #JordanPeltz

 UPDATE A BIG UPDATE- lots of facts

 Did a lot of looking into this officer, snopes said 100% wrong, he never said he was a Marshal, the short video update deals with this, he is a K-9 Warrant Officer, not a Marshal, but indeed in law enforcement.

 As I said I do not believe in protests, crowds for such cause, fighting, killing, I still stand by this, our country has never been so divided esp. the past year, it is the whole plan, and they used Trump to do it. He is far from OK. I posted on this. 

Non event, after much research it may well be a non event, so pray it is not, we do not need more of this stuff, but-America is under Judgement, and all this is our Judgments.


Divide and conquered, sadly we are being conquered, by God, God uses Man.

 I understand why people are feed up with all of this, but this in itself is more distraction, we are not called to wrath, fear, worry, or confusion by distractions esp. by online sites and main stream media.

Alternative media is becoming just as bad, if you notice in many of these videos the alternative media person uses 100% as their argument from Fox News or a CNN story, so its just falling for the whole mind game. I hope those in true alternative media stop using as their source, main stream media, if not, what's the difference, their own words, their take, commentary, but based on a main stream news post, or program.

Understand the worlds job, who's boss is Satan, wants to weary, and wear down the saints, do not let this happen or become faint hearted at this time, but be strong, bold, humble and forge ahead until we can not. Pray, worship, have joy, and pray for more of Jesus presence in our life's, life is short , eternity is forever.

Short rebuttal video to the doxxing campaign from the infantile spoiled ANTIFA, and the extreme left that make up their ranks. Sit back, enjoy watching the left squirm as I discount, disprove and discredit their best attempts to silence me. The fact that I warranted a large enough threat to the Democratic Party, ANTIFA and liberals in general, forcing SNOPES to make a false "Fact Check" page on me, shows I'm going in the right direction!

So, for the very last time: Before you decide to try and ruin an individual's life by making up 'facts' to further your doxxing campaign, threatening their loved ones, their kids, and even their dog's, you should probably take the 5 seconds to look at their readily available 'About Me' bio.

Had you all done that, you wouldn't have forced me into this battle, thus causing the beginning of the end for all you lurid and cowardly basement trolls.

 Is 'Antifa' Planning a Civil War?

https://www.snopes.com/is-antifa-planning-a-civil-war/

Despite what random people might say in homemade YouTube videos, they offer no proof that any anti-fascist groups are planning even a skirmish.

Law enforcement agents have announced that "antifa" is planning extended violent unrest or civil war beginning on 4 November 2017.

RATING=FALSE

In August 2017, rumors began to spread on social media that anti-fascists (a name often shortened to “antifa”, which has become shorthand for a subset of protestors, usually clad in black and accessorized with bandannas and who are evidently unnerving bloggers and vloggers enough to be the pet topic of many an angry online rant) were planning extended unrest, riots, killing random citizens, or outright civil war beginning on 4 November 2017:

Depending on the source, “antifa” (always treated as though it is one homogenous, unified group) is purportedly planning extended riots, joint violence alongside Black Lives Matter and the Black Panthers, or a coup of the American government.

The rumors seem to have originated from a video originally published on 30 August 2017 by an individual named Jordan Peltz. Peltz was widely (and incorrectly) identified as a “U.S. Marshal” in the video, which shows him wearing what looked like an official badge that is actually simply printed on his shirt. However, he is not actually law enforcement or military — Peltz instead evidently works as some combination of bail bondsman and bounty hunter.

(Claiming to be a United States marshal is very popular among the sovereign citizen set; those involved claim to answer only to their interpretation of common law and maintain they are not subject to other legal conventions, including getting driver’s licenses and paying taxes. Local, state, and federal governments tend to disagree.)

On Instagram, Peltz describes his work as “#fugitiverecovery” and “#warrantservice”:

Peltz published a video to “clear the air” on 27 September 2017 after reporter JJ MacNab, whose beat includes anti-government and sovereign citizen groups, wrote a thread on Twitter about how militia groups are being goaded into taking up arms against anti-fascists:

Peltz responded by stating that his video, which gave an impression he was either predicting or calling for a November 2017 civil war, had been edited — although he didn’t specify when, by whom, or why, despite millions of views and thousands of comments, he had remained unaware it had been altered until he saw reports:

    — Veritas’AequitasUSA (@TacticalPoet84) September 28, 2017

On 29 September 2017, InfoWars published an article using Peltz’s “civil war” wording:

    Antifa is planning a new round of nationwide riots on November 4 as part of a plot to start a “civil war” that will lead to the overthrow of the Trump administration.

    Far-left militants plan to “gather in the streets and public squares of cities and towns across this country” in the hope of building momentum for civil unrest that leads to nothing less than domestic regime change.

    “Our protest must grow day after day and night after night—thousands becoming hundreds of thousands, and then millions—determined to act to put a stop to the grave danger that the Trump/Pence Regime poses to the world by demanding that this whole regime be removed from power,” states a call to action on the RefuseFascism website.

    A longer screed posted on the Revolutionary Communist website makes it clear that Antifa is not prepared to wait for electoral change from Democrats, and will engage in a “ferocious struggle,” based on plans outlined in a book written by Bob Avakian, the Chairman of the Revolutionary Communist Party, which is called The Coming Civil War.

    

The page also cited “antifa” web sites, neither of which threatened violence. One provided a list of Facebook events, and the other read in its entirety:

    ON NOVEMBER 4, 2017:

    We will gather in the streets and public squares of cities and towns across this country, at first many thousands declaring that this whole regime is illegitimate and that we will not stop until our single demand is met: This Nightmare Must End: the Trump/Pence Regime Must Go!

    Our protest must grow day after day and night after night—thousands becoming hundreds of thousands, and then millions—determined to act to put a stop to the grave danger that the Trump/Pence Regime poses to the world by demanding that this whole regime be removed from power.

    Our actions will reflect the values of respect for all of humanity and the world we want—in stark contrast to the hate and bigotry of the Trump/Pence fascist regime.

    Our determination to persist and not back down will compel the whole world to take note. Every force and faction in the power structure would be forced to respond to our demand. The cracks and divisions among the powers already evident today will sharpen and widen. As we draw more and more people forward to stand up, all of this could lead to a situation where this illegitimate regime is removed from power.

    Spread the word and organize now. Be a part of making history. Don’t let it be said that you stood aside when there was still a chance to stop a regime that imperils humanity and the Earth itself. Join in taking to the streets and the public squares day after day and night after night demonstrating that In the Name of Humanity, We REFUSE to Accept a Fascist America.

    On November 4, 2017, we will stand together with conviction and courage, overcoming fear and uncertainty, to insist that: This Nightmare Must End: The Trump/Pence Regime Must GO!

@AntifaChecker, a Twitter feed devoted to sniffing out phony “antifa” accounts, said it was not even aware of the call to action:

    yeah, we haven’t heard anything about november 4

    — Antifa Checker (@AntifaChecker) October 1, 2017

An article in L.A. Weekly reported on both the freeway protest and upcoming events:

    Their placards bore letters that spelled out “NOV 4 IT BEGINS.” But they couldn’t get enough volunteers to hold all 12 letters, so the tallest among them, the ones with the broadest wingspans, held up two letters each. The eight people weren’t enough to block the on-ramp, so some motorists were able to swerve around.

    [Organizer and USC film professor Perry] Hoberman says the protest was conceived in part to get the word out about a Nov. 4 demonstration the group is planning. He says it’s being modeled on the Women’s March held in January at Pershing Square and that organizers hope the action will include an encampment in a public place, à la Occupy Wall Street, or at least a prolonged series of protests over several days.

    At one point on Tuesday they knelt on the freeway, which organizer Michelle Xai says was to acknowledge “black and Latino people who have been and continue to be murdered by police.”

    A video of the protest uploaded to the group’s Facebook page has more than 700,000 views. Many of the 24,000-plus commenters ask for more information about Nov. 4. Plenty of others object to the group’s inconveniencing motorists, and some appear to endorse running them over.

It is true that some groups linked to the antifa movement planned co-ordinated protests on 4 November 2017, but that had nothing to do with Peltz’s video expressing disdain for the group in August 2017, nor did he appear to have any insider law enforcement knowledge, as he does not work as law enforcement himself.

When a wave of rumors about 4 November anti-fascist protests began, his clip became part of the claim as “evidence” that a “federal officer” warned of coming violence. In reality, a list of apparently peaceful protests were paired with an older, unrelated video to create the impression of a looming threat. Peltz himself walked the claims far back after his video brought him unwanted attention and scrutiny.


 


This officer did this vid in is squad car, a Christian, and speaks truth, I discern he is the real deal, see this, God bless him and all police and people. This was a good find. 

BY now most have heard the  NOV 4 , 2017 deal, pray it is a non event , it Could be a big deal, a real push on taking us down, or, just another non- event we will see.

 I wonder if this officer will get a pick slip over this wow.

Update I watched this a few more time, I must say at the end, I do not believe we should rise up if the Goverment will not, and well...fight the other side, no protests no crowds, no violence, I have always said this and still stand by this, unless you have a home invader.

Biblical Insight To Decreeing-And The Word Of Faith Problem



(WOF)word of faith people decree crazy things all the time, they decree this or that, and everything in between.

Here is a great insight to Decreeing, an O.T. usage that we do not find in the N.T., but worth pointing out.

Job 22:28 Thou shalt also decree a thing, and it shall be established unto thee; And light shall shine upon thy ways.

BDB Definition of the word in Hebrew says:

H1504
גּזר
gâzar
BDB Definition:
1) to cut, divide, cut down, cut off, cut in two, snatch, decree
1a) (Qal)
1a1) to cut in two, divide
1a2) to cut down
1a3) to cut off, destroy, exterminate
1a4) to decree
1b) (Niphal)
1b1) to be cut off, separated, excluded
1b2) to be destroyed, cut off
1b3) to be decreed
Part of Speech: verb

Note, to divide or cut, cut in two.

People misuse decreeing a thing. Decreeing is the same as the N.T. word that we all know in this verse.

2Ti 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

ISV is good on this verse.

2Ti 2:15 Do your best to present yourself to God as an approved worker who has nothing to be ashamed of, handling the word of truth with precision.


Rightly divide Greek:

G3718
ὀρθοτομέω
orthotomeō
or-thot-om-eh'-o
From a compound of G3717 and the base of G5114; to make a straight cut, that is, (figuratively) to dissect (expound) correctly (the divine message): - rightly divide.


Thayers Greek:

G3718
ὀρθοτομέω
orthotomeō
Thayer Definition:
1) to cut straight, to cut straight ways
1a) to proceed on straight paths, hold a straight course, equiv. to doing right
2) to make straight and smooth, to handle aright, to teach the truth directly and correctly
Part of Speech: verb
A Related Word by Thayer’s/Strong’s Number: from a compound of G3717 and the base of G5114


So we clearly see decreeing is the same as rightly dividing the word, Correct exposition, clear understanding by means of diligent study, in context, in the original language and good study helps.
Yet to dissect, cut, divide the word, seems to be void in the modern WOF doctrines and practices, they see it as man can create what they say, by saying it, and that is that. A positive confession, an authority to say something and with enough faith, it is yours.

This is not a biblical doctrine, but a doctrine of Demons. It is nowhere found in the N.T.
Outward prosperity in the O.T. was a gift and a sign the person was blessed and right with God.

In the N.T. it is the exact opposite. Struggle, persecution, poverty, to be poor, to be mal- treated, in tribulation, buffeted and being a cross bearer believer is the inward sign of Gods Grace and Favor.

Not wealth, not fame, not health. Obedience, humility, and inward blessing that is greater than anything outward. The WOF camp uses, and misuse-es, the O.T. application to N.T. Christian believers, and this in its self is in opposition to an O.T. Decree, it is rightly dividing a thing and than saying it, study that shows one approved of God, a workman that need not be ashamed as he rightly expounds and studies the gems the bible offers.

So you want to do N.T. decreeing? Apply. learn the difference.

Cut in two, separate, dissect the word, and be a workman for God, that is built on the Good solid foundation of Biblical exposition and sound doctrine.

Do not think I am saying do not pray in faith for things. God knows you need this or that, but decreeing as it is or practice today is not N.T. Theology proper.
Faith is very important, we must pray in and have faith, it may take a long time, even years to see your prayer need come to pass, but if God wills for it, mark my words it will come.

These false teachers honestly believe if the verbally speak something, they are speaking it into being , the creative power of mans word, look only God creates.

I was watching a compilation video posted on some clips from these T.V. Big names, they were shouting 'MONEY, MONET, MONEY', another said, 'I speak forth a Jet for this ministry', another said, 'I command Wealth on everyone sitting in the place today, wealth, riches, prosperity.

The Word Of Faith Doctrine comes right from cult teachings of becoming little god's.
Positive and negative confession is big with them, you say anything that may seem negative , something with out hyper faith and your doomed because you said it. The power of mans words to create this is not found in the N.T.

I deal with a lot of Students in the free bible college in Africa, they have been overcome by these faith teachers, many say positive confession is a must and I command this or that. By Gods grace I have had the chance by the bible college to give some detailed teachings on these doctrine.
Many have come out of it and emailed and said they have learned sound doctrine PTL.

In the N.T. We read some of the Apostles said, I adjure you-Command you, rise and be healed. The Apostles had true mighty signs and wonders. WE can pray the prayer of faith for healing, the bible teaches us this. If anyone of you is sick let him come to the elders and the elders will anoint you with oil and pray for healing...this is bible, it does not say they commanded the healing, think of it is it even rational to think we humans can command God to do anything?
Jas 5:14 Is anyone among you sick? He should call for the elders of the church, and they should pray for him and anoint him with oil in the name of the Lord.

Jas 5:15 And the prayer offered in faith will save the person who is sick. The Lord will raise him up, and if he has committed any sins, he will be forgiven.
Jas 5:16 Therefore, make it your habit to confess your sins to one another and to pray for one another, so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.

Jas 5:17 Elijah was a person just like us, and he prayed earnestly for it not to rain, and rain never came to the land for three years and six months.

Jas 5:18 Then he prayed again, and the skies poured out rain, and the ground produced its crops.

So yes we pray fervently, but not as if we were commanding something. Servant prayer is not human commanding but teaches us to be humble and look to our lord, and we pray it is Gods will for someone to be healed.

Old time Pentecostals, even the old AOG always taught, if you are not living in victory it is always due to a lack of faith. This is true and false.


WE pray for healing, marriage problems, rebellion of youths and such, we pray others needs would be met, in time, they normally will, that word TIME, is key, literally time as a time-frame and Gods timing, we pray Gods will be done, his grace to be manifest.

You can shout as loud as you can, shout, pray until your blue in the face, if something is not Gods will or timing such acts of the flesh are useless. This deals with God's Sovereignty.

WE learn in Luke 18 to always pray and never give up, so its bible teaching to pry many times on something, others think once you pray about something, you are not supposed to pray about it again, this is the opposite and this is not N.T. Truth.

ISV-

Luk 18:1 Jesus told his disciples a parable about their need to pray all the time and never give up.

Luk 18:7 Won't God grant his chosen people justice when they cry out to him day and night? Is he slow to help them?

Luk 18:8 I tell you, he will give them justice quickly. But when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on earth?"

Luk 18:9 Jesus also told this parable to some people who trusted in themselves, thinking they were righteous, but who looked down on everyone else:

Another N.T. On praying on something more than once is as follows, you will only learn the Gem we get by reading this in the Greek, in the Greek kit really adds some powerful truth.

Mat 7:7 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:

Mat 7:8 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.

The Greek reads-Ask, keep asking, seek-keep seeking-knock -keep knocking. See the Greek, if you do not believe me.

Many times in the bible the word faith is different-Greek-pistis is faith confidence, trust, etc.

Barnes on Luke 18:9

Faith - The word “faith” is sometimes taken to denote the “whole” of religion, and it has been understood in this sense here; but there is a close connection in what Christ says, and it should be understood as referring to what he said before. The truth that he had been teaching was, that God would deliver his people from their calamities and save them, though he suffered them to be long tried. He asks them here whether, when he came, he should find “this faith,” or a belief of “this truth,” among his followers? Would they be found persevering in prayer, and “believing” that God would yet avenge them; or would they cease to pray “always, and faint?” This is not to be understood, therefore, as affirming that when Christ comes to judgment there will be few Christians on the earth, and that the world will be overrun with wickedness. That “may be” true, but it is not the truth taught here.

I have heard preachers preach on faith and say it's pistis faith, when it is what is called, The Faith, meaning the Gospel Faith.

Heb 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen


Greek for Faith is;

G4102

πίστις
pistis
pis'-tis
From G3982; persuasion, that is, credence; moral conviction (of religious truth, or the truthfulness of God or a religious teacher), especially reliance upon Christ for salvation; abstractly constancy in such profession; by extension the system of religious (Gospel) truth itself: - assurance, belief, believe, faith, fidelity.

Note in Heb 11:1 faith-Hoped for, not commanded for, or decreed.

Look beloved, I am all about faith, I preach , teach the necessity of having faith, it is serious.

Heb 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

The seriousness is there, but as all things we must not over emphasize one truth, but balance it with the whole truth in the bible.

Barnes:

And that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him - This is equally necessary as the belief that he exists. If we could not believe that God would hear and answer our prayers, there could be no encouragement to call upon him. It is not meant here that the desire of the reward is to be the motive for seeking God - for the apostle makes no affirmation on that point; but that it is impossible to make an acceptable approach to him unless we have this belief.

The lord does reward, He has been good to all of us, even when we do not think so, God is always at work, always trying to teach just about Him as Father, a Father supplies the needs of his Children. God wants to help us, meet our needs-NEEDS not always wants, but even wants as 'HE can do exceeding, abundantly above all we can ask or think', Yes he can, and he does. It's the mystery of contentment, as Paul wrote.
Many Christians want a fast food Gospel everything now, today, or soon. The lords key word in LK 18 and in Heb 11:6 is, not lose heart, faint, give up, etc. Diligence, this is key, diligent faith, diligent praying, all is to be diligent.

Diligent means;

VWS-Of them that diligently seek him (τοῖς ἐκζητοῦσιν αὐτὸν)

Lit. unto them that seek him out. Comp. Act_15:17; Heb_12:17; 1Pe_1:10.

The verb is used of seeking God, Rom_3:11. God's beneficent will and attitude toward the seeker are not always apparent at the first approach. In such cases there is occasion for faith, in the face of delay, that diligent seeking will find its reward. One is reminded of Jesus' lessons on importunity in seeking God, Luk_11:5-10; Luk_18:1-8

Webster. Diligently;

DILIGENTLY, adv. With steady application and care; with industry or assiduity; not carelessly; not negligently.

Ye shall diligently keep the commandments of the Lord your God. Deu 6.

I always teach we need Greek and Hebrew dictionaries as they teach us how the word is used and what it means in a text. If you tale the Strong's Dictionary and list every meaning listed it does not mean all the words in different verses, if your a WOF word smith you could argue the Strong's on this word says Demand,

WE must look at the Greek words and bible dictionaries to teach us the proper usage of a word.

Let me show by example of Greek words-

G1567

ἐκζητέω
ekzēteō
ek-zay-teh'-o
From G1537 and G2212; to search out, that is, (figuratively) investigate, crave, demand, (by Hebraism) worship: - en- (re-) quire, seek after (carefully, diligently).
Total KJV occurrences: 7


G2212

ζητέω
zēteō
dzay-teh'-o
Of uncertain affinity; to seek (literally or figuratively); specifically (by Hebraism) to worship (God), or (in a bad sense) to plot (against life): - be (go) about, desire, endeavour, enquire (for), require, (X will) seek (after, for, means). Compare G4441.

G4441

πυνθάνομαι
punthanomai
poon-than'-om-ahee

Middle voice prolonged from πύθω puthō, a primary word, (which occurs only as an alternate in certain tenses); to question, that is, ascertain by inquiry (as a matter of information merely; and thus differing from G2065, which properly means a request as a favor; and from G154, which is strictly a demand of something due; as well as from G2212, which implies a search for something hidden; and from G1189, which involves the idea of urgent need); by implication to learn (by casual intelligence): - ask, demand, enquire, understand.

Do you see how a Greek word can mean something different in a given verse?
I hope this teaching part did not bore you LOL. Its what I love to do, teach sound doctrine and use geopolitics and such to do so.

Many just take a mans word for a truth, a doctrine man made, and not made in the Bible, its easy to be deceived if we do not rightly divide the word, as I started in the begging of this detailed message

I end with this;

Abba Father loves us so much, he says NO or not now, or not in this life? It is all His love, when we do not grasp this w can see God as harsh, unloving and not caring about our problems in life.
O' Beloved God loves you, he sees your struggles , he know you pain, he loves you, let us pray in diligence, let us pry unceasing, let us pray in faith and follow wherever He leads. Not our will but His will be done.

Have faith in God-we should not have faith in faith.






Code Word: Zebra

                                                               



Rylisms Devotion

“that no flesh should glory in His presence.” (1Co_1:29)

While we may be dazzled here on earth by the physical looks and achievements of spectacular people — Heaven is unimpressed.

Paul writes in full detail the sentiment of the Divine as it pertains to the high-minded folly of self-exalting men and women. “But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty; and the base things of the world and the things which are despised God has chosen, and the things which are not, to bring to nothing the things that are, that no flesh should glory in His presence.” (1Co_1:27-29).

That no flesh should glory in His presence — that is the specific reason why God works is such unusual ways; choosing foolish things to shame the wise things, and weak things to shame things that are mighty. And for those who follow Christ, it can sometimes be a real challenge to disconnect from the constant pull toward self-promotion is this “flesh exalting” world.

Maybe this short story will help.

A friend of mine, Jack, is retired from a high-powered career that had him rubbing elbows with the high and mighty in Washington, DC. He was a shaker and a mover, overseeing a nationwide enterprise that employed thousands of people, and affected millions of lives. There was never a dull moment.

Back in those days Jack wore his power suit with his power tie; gold cufflinks, and designer shoes. He snapped his finger, and fifty associates jumped to attention, ready for action. The only problem was that Jack also brought this energy home with him, disrupting the peace of his house.

And his dear wife decided to set him straight on a few things.

“These are your children,” she contended, “not your employees. You need to find a way when you come home to change gears from being a boss to being a dad.”

“What do you have in mind?” Jack asked.

“Zebra,” his wife answered.

“Zebra?”

“Yes, Zebra. Whenever I see you doing that boss-thing, I will use the word zebra in a sentence; like, ‘did you hear about that zebra at the zoo?’ Or, ‘I was watching a TV special about zebras today.’ When you hear the word zebra – chill out.”

“That’s a great idea, Jack said; but I’m curious — why did you decide on the word zebra?”

“Oh, that’s easy,” she replied, “a zebra is nothing but a jackass in a pinstripe suit!” ( I love that line, I think I will have to use this one from time to time)

Jack chilled out – and peace came back into his home! Maybe each one of us can do the same, especially if we are strutting our stuff and trying to impress others with how powerful, how smart, how clever, how rich, or how knowledgeable we are.

Maybe we just might hear the Lord ask, “Did you hear about the Zebra at the zoo?”

Knowledge of Sin-A.W. Tozar



http://revival-library.com/

“The more I learn about my sin in my own heart, the more I want to know God’s grace.” – A.W. Tozer

The Contrast of Sin and Grace


There is a large and ever growing sentiment among many Christians, that we don’t need to make much mention of sin. That instead we should singularly focus on the attribute of God’s love and His great willingness to forgive.

There is however a glaring logical problem to this train of thought… What is the object for which God is willing to forgive? What precisely is He forgiving us, if we have not yet defined an offense?

This is so obvious to me, that I struggle with the notion that it actually needs to be spelled out in detail.

If forgiveness is offered to someone, it was offered because that individual was wronged. If the person who was offered forgiveness had no clue that they had committed the offense, this offer of forgiveness would seem strange and out of place. “Forgive me for what? What did I do?”

The measure of the offense would also shed more light on the weight of the offer of forgiveness. For example, “You made me late for work. Its okay, I forgive you.” This offense seems relatively trivial until it was revealed that by making him late, he was also fired. This changes our perspective of the situation doesn’t it?

In our previous example, the knowledge of the severity of the offense and it’s consequences also informed on the weight of the act of forgiveness itself. We are now able to see just how much more meaning is displayed by the act of forgiveness, once we realize the gravity of what was done wrong.
God Is Loving

Yes He most certainly is. Though, just how loving is He? How do we know? Scripture tells us that He loved us so much He gave up His Son to the cross….. wait isn’t that just a bit extreme? What do you mean, He loves us so much he killed His Son to prove it? Or from the perspective of Jesus, that He loved us so much, He committed suicide to prove it? – as Paul would put it. “By no means.”
The Dilemma

So why did Jesus have to die? It all comes down to this. What is our great need for Jesus dying on the Cross? The reason I believe we want to avoid talking about Sin, is because we are all guilty of it. Jesus died on the cross for the same reason criminals go to jail. A law was broken… and not just any law… God’s Law. We are all criminals (sinners) in God’s eyes. How do you expect to get away with a crime against the most Holy Judge of all creation? God wouldn’t be a good judge if he let Hitler get away unpunished for the crimes he committed. What we fail to understand is that our sin is no less ugly in God’s eyes than Hitler’s crimes. People, especially in our American culture today have this idea that “I’m not a bad person.” So in the same way, God wouldn’t be a good God or good Judge if he simply just let us get away with our sin. SO the Dilemma we run into is… if God is good… He MUST judge me…. how then can I be saved.
The Cross

Sin is a terrible offense to God and I don’t think we can even begin to wrap our minds around it. Scripture tells us the wages of sin is death. The Law has been broken, and a penalty must be paid. This is where Jesus becomes so necessary. This is what make his gift of “Forgiveness” so wonderful. Jesus went to the cross in our place so we wouldn’t have to bear the weight of the Full Wrath of Almighty God. God was serious about Sin. By understand how heavy God treats sin, we get a fuller picture of just how Great and Amazing God’s Grace really is.
No Sin No Cross

Many who espouse the idea that we should refrain from talking about sin must by necessity also refrain from mention of the Cross. The Reason again is obvious.

If sin was not important to God, He would not have sent His Son to die because of it.

If we don’t mention how terrible of an offense that sin is to God, we can’t really get an true idea of how much his offer of forgiveness really was.

The Secret-Secrets Of The Lord

I know only what the lords tells me and what his Bible teaches. The first one is fallible, the second is infallible, and this must be number one in proper bible study, the bible over a word we may get, extra biblical words, they are hit and miss.

I did a post years ago with that title-The Secret-I did this because a pagan book was written called-The Secret-I wanted to give bible truth on the matter.

The lord reveals his secrets to his beloved. Secrets are not just concerning dates as many think, a secret is just that, a message, a word, a verse given to you by the Holy Spirit. Divine counsel and direction also are secrets. We see this in Jer 33:3 below

Jeremiah 33:3

Call to Me and I will answer you, and I will tell you great and mighty things, which you do not know.'

This tells us the secret to getting our needed secret, PRAYER, SIMPLE. The Holy Bible, illumination, and revelation by the Holy Spirit.


Psalms 25:14

New American Standard 1977

The secret of the LORD is for those who fear Him,
And He will make them know His covenant.

King James Bible

The secret of the LORD is with them that fear him; and he will shew them his covenant.

Spurgeon;

Ver. 14. The secret of the Lord is with them that fear him. Some read it "the friendship:" it signifies familiar intercourse, confidential intimacy, and select fellowship. This is a great secret.

Carnal minds cannot guess what is intended by it, and even believers cannot explain it in words, for it must be felt to be known.

The higher spiritual life is necessarily a path which the eagle's eye hath not known, and which the lion's whelp has not traveled; neither natural wisdom, nor strength can force a door into this inner chamber.

Saints have the key of heaven's hieroglyphics; they can unriddle celestial enigmas. They are initiated into the fellowship of the skies; they have heard words which it is not possible for them to repeat to their fellows. And he will shew them his covenant.

Barnes:

The secret of the Lord - On the word here rendered “secret,” see the notes at Job_15:8. It properly means a couch or cushion; and then, a divan or circle of friends sitting together; then, deliberation or consultation; then, familiar contact, intimacy; and then, a “secret,” - as if it were the result of a private consultation among friends, or something which pertained to them, and which they did not wish to have known.


The Secret- Hebrew;

H5475

סוֹד
sôd
sode
From H3245; a session, that is, company of persons (in close deliberation); by implication intimacy, consultation, a secret: - assembly, counsel, inward, secret (counsel).

H3245

יָסַד
yâsad
yaw-sad'
A primitive root; to set (literally or figuratively); intensively to found; reflexively to sit down together, that is, settle, consult: - appoint, take counsel, establish, (lay the, lay for a) found (-ation), instruct, lay, ordain, set, X sure.



Gill:


Psalms 25:14

. some are made known to them that fear the Lord before they come to pass; as the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah to Abraham, with many other instances in the Old Testament; see Amo_3:7; and what is the book of the Revelation but a revelation of the secrets of Providence, from the time of Christ and his apostles, to the end of the world?

Some they observe and take notice of while they are performing, and see the gracious designs of God in them, for their good and his glory; and though some of his ways of Providence are past finding out, and his footsteps are not known as yet; hereafter his judgments will be made manifest, and the whole scene will be opened to the saints, and be clear to their view.

The secret of his love, free grace, and favor, is with them, which was in his heart from everlasting, and lay hid in his thoughts, which are as much higher than ours as the heavens are higher than the earth; and which is made manifest in regeneration, and then shed abroad in the hearts of his people.

Secret communion with God is enjoyed by those that fear him, which is what the world knows nothing of, and the joy that results from it is what a stranger intermeddles not with; the Lord has his chambers and secret places, into which he brings them, and where they dwell. The secret of his Gospel is with them;



Websters Diction First Edition in E-Sword explains the word secret very well.

Secret
SE'CRET, a. [L. secretus. This is given as the participle of secerno, but is radically a different word. The radical sense of seg is to separate, as in L. seco, to cut off; and not improbably this word is contracted into the Latin se, a prefix in segrego, separo, &c.]

1. Properly, separate; hence, hid; concealed from the notice or knowledge of all persons except the individual or individuals concerned.

I have a secret errand to thee, O king. Judg 3.

2. Unseen; private; secluded; being in retirement.

There secret in her sapphire cell,

He with the Nais wont to dwell. Fenton.

3. Removed from sight; private; unknown.

Abide in a secret place, and hide thyself. I Sam. 19.

4. Keeping secrets; faithful to secrets entrusted; as secret Romans. [Unusual.]

5. Private; affording privacy.

6. Occult; not seen; not apparent; as the secret operations of physical causes.

7. Known to God only.

Secret things belong to the Lord our God. Deu 29.

Not proper to be seen; kept or such as ought to be kept from observation.


SE'CRET, n. [L. secretum]

1. Something studiously concealed. A man who cannot keep his own secrets, will hardly keep the secrets of others.


SE'CRET, v. t. To keep private. [Little used.]


The Hebrew Word Means;

H7328

רָז
râz
rawz
(Chaldee); from an unused root probably meaning to attenuate, that is, (figuratively) hide; a mystery: - secret.


Other Bible Portions that use secret things

Secret Things;



'Call to Me and I will answer you, and I will tell you great and mighty things, which you do not know.'
Jeremiah 33:3

"But there is nothing covered up that will not be revealed, and hidden that will not be known. "Accordingly, whatever you have said in the dark will be heard in the light, and what you have whispered in the inner rooms will be proclaimed upon the housetops.
Luke 12:2-3



"It is He who reveals the profound and hidden things; He knows what is in the darkness, And the light dwells with Him.
Proverbs 25:2


It is the glory of God to conceal a matter, But the glory of kings is to search out a matter.
Daniel 12:9


He said, "Go your way, Daniel, for these words are concealed and sealed up until the end time.
Mark 13:32



Surely the Lord GOD does nothing Unless He reveals His secret counsel To His servants the prophets.
Amos 3:7


For to us God revealed them through the Spirit; for the Spirit searches all things, even the depths of God.
Ephesians 1:9


Beloved, this is a subject that many can get mystical about. I read daily, someone has a revelation, a dream, a special vision, and all I read are mostly self declarations of things that are not found in the bible, the lord does not work like that, the lord will never give a vision a secret , that is not back up by his Holy Word.

The lord wants to give a deeper revelation of Jesus Christ, O' More of the presence of Jesus, magnified, glorified, and truth, embodied in Him and not a man.

It takes pray to hear from the lord, it takes reading your bible, it takes waiting on the lord. I have never seen another way this works.

Be sure that when you do pray, the word says He-the Lord, will tell you MIGHTY THINGS YOU DO NOT KNOW.

The lord has, and will, reveal his heart, and direction for your life to you, it just takes time, sometimes it's a Prophetic blast- and it blows your mind, it is real and you know it.
How we need to get closer to Jesus , so we can fellowship, so we can hear his heart beat, and get our secret we need.
Get your secret today.

DO YOU FEEL LIKE GIVING UP? by David Wilkerson

A growing number of ministers have been writing to me in recent
months, telling of their concern for those in their flock who are
simply giving up. Today, more and more Christians are at the
breaking point. None of the talk about giving up has to do with
the Lord. Few Christians would even dare entertain thoughts of
quitting on their love for Jesus. Most despairing Christians think
only of giving up on themselves. You hear it so often now, "I can't
go on anymore. I just can't make it. It's totally hopeless! Why try?"

I hear some ministers today who continually preach only a positive
message. To hear them tell it, every Christian is receiving miracles-
everybody is getting instant answers to prayer-everybody's feeling
good, living good, and the whole world is bright and rosy. I really
wish all those good and healthy things for God's people, but
that's not the way things are for a great number of very honest
and sincere Christians. How sad to hear such shallow theology
being pushed from pulpits today. It's an insult to a lowly Jesus
who became poor, who died a failure in the eyes of the world. It
is this kind of materialistic preaching that has so ill-prepared an
entire generation of Christians to endure any kind of pain. They
have not learned to be content with such things as they have-to
be abased and not always abounding. Serving God becomes a
kind of Olympic race in which everyone must strive for gold medals.

No wonder our young people give up in defeat. They can't live
up to the image created by the religion of a happy-go-lucky, rich,
successful, always positive-thinking Christian. Their world is not
that idealistic. They look in a mirror reflecting a face covered with
ugly pimples. They live with heartbreaks, hour-by-hour crises,
and horrible family problems. They look into the uncertain future,
frightened and worried.

Positive thinking won't make their problems go away. Confessing
that these problems don't really exist doesn't change a thing.
These "apostles of the positive" should not exclude the Gethsemane
experiences of life. The cup of pain, the hour of isolation, and the
night of confusion were all part of the Master's lifestyle. Our great
achievements, our successes, ought to take place at Gethsemane,
not Fort Knox!...

NEW !! Something Strange is Happening in CALIFORNIA !!

I have watched videos and looked at pics in Ca St Napa the great wine area. The lord spoke to me this is a sign of Judgment. I once heard years ago a poll was taken , modern Jews, the question if you had another Exodus what are the top 5 items you would want to have, number 3 was wine, serious.

The bible-wine, new wine- speaks of Joy, happiness, even purity, the new wine. The great wine loss is the taking away of Joy, happiness and current and coming desolation.


This is not a full video of fires and floods like Jason A 's work, around the 10 min mark, the rest is an excellent message on types of doubting, very good and all sound doctrine, the message is worth a listen

WW3-About It-What You Should Do-Miracles And Judgments Behind Closed Doors

This short word and message spoke heavy to me, thus I feel called to take a few days and pray and prepare.

While we are in a time that the Apostles wrote about wars and rumors of Wars, we have also seen in American history real wars, world wars. Understand no where in the bible do we read anything about ww3 being the last war. I feel this has been propagated by man not the lord. The bible does not say anything about how many world wars there would be.
WW3 is NOT bible prophecy-Fact.
Next;
I have written on the 72 hour warning that God would give his true people a heads up 72 hours before it will be to late to make any kind of move out of the place they are living at.

The lord pressed my spirit concerning the coming WW3, it matters not where it is, the middle East, S. America or the Asian Pacific theater. I have long said do not look at Russia, Syria, look at Asia, it has come to pass, this word was given many times before all the News hype with NK.

What the lord showed me was when WW3 starts this will be a Pre-72 hour warning.
When you hear on the news WW3 has broken out the lord said this would be the time to leave dodge if you can and if you are called to do so.

Right after the War deceleration there will be anti-war uprisings that are already planned and others will happen because this always happens during wars, anti- war folks I am one, but will not be out anywhere to protests it, remember Kent State college?

The facts we read of by our Government state; 'They can locked down any city in America in 10 min and within 15 min every toll both will be taken over', this means you will not be able to travel, bug out, leave.

I must say something off topic, once again the end of the world is on Oct 13 2017 and the Rapture, start of the trib, good lord...again, so be it, all false.

There are places the lord has set up around the USA like this offline ministry that will be TEMPORAY SAFE HAVENS OR REFUGE CAMPS FOR TRUE BELIVERS AND THOSE THAT WILL COME TO THE LORD.

I know of a few around the USA, this is but one of many.

If you plan on coming to this one, WW3 will be the time you should flee, or hunker down and be in prayer.

Closed doors;

Mat 6:4 That thine alms may be in secret: and thy Father which seeth in secret himself shall reward thee openly.

Mat 6:6 But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.

Jesus when he healed a little girl, the people laughed Him to scorn, he tossed them all out but the parents and three Apostles, his inner three.

Luk 8:53 And they laughed him to scorn, knowing that she was dead.

Luk 8:54 And he put them all out, and took her by the hand, and called, saying, Maid, arise.

Elisha when he healed the boy closed the door behind him after one attempt he paced back and forth the second time he laid on the lad and the boy sneezed 7 times, odd 7 times, number of perfection.

2Ki 4:31 And Gehazi passed on before them, and laid the staff upon the face of the child; but there was neither voice, nor hearing. Wherefore he went again to meet him, and told him, saying, The child is not awaked.

2Ki 4:32 And when Elisha was come into the house, behold, the child was dead, and laid upon his bed.

2Ki 4:33 He went in therefore, and shut the door upon them twain, and prayed unto the LORD.

2Ki 4:34 And he went up, and lay upon the child, and put his mouth upon his mouth, and his eyes upon his eyes, and his hands upon his hands: and he stretched himself upon the child; and the flesh of the child waxed warm.

2Ki 4:35 Then he returned, and walked in the house to and fro; and went up, and stretched himself upon him: and the child sneezed seven times, and the child opened his eyes.

Moses, Egypt, when the Angel of death came the lord said close the doors and keep them closed until the Angel of death was done.

Isa wrote close the door behind you until the calamity be overpast-'done', this reason was not known it was a Judgment, and the anointed were to close the doors pray and wait until it was over.

Isa 26:20 Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast.


Isa 26:20, the lord has given me specifics on this for the offline ministry, when it happens stay inside a week or two, after that most will be dead, in a city, that is different and it is why you should not be in a populated area. The cities will burn, Martial law will be called, once that happens you are where you will be as you will not be able to travel.

WW3, when this happens again I say a pre-72 hour warning, that would be the key time to flee it you plan on it.

Very soon after you will be where you are. This is a decision you must make.

I have seen in my spirit many things happening one after another, unexpected things, more and more.

This is a warning a word from the lord, when you see, hear, that ww3 has happened flee or stay.

WE may not see Martial law, or a complete collapse, when ww3 has started, but it will be right behind it, how long? No one knows, but its simple prudent actions should be taken have a plan and be ready, much is on the way.

This is the word I was given.

We Lose A battle, What Do We Do? We Continue On Until We Get The Complete Victory- You May Fall A Thousand Times- Get Back Up

Jdg 20:21  And the children of Benjamin came forth out of Gibeah, and destroyed down to the ground of the Israelites that day twenty and two thousand men.

Jdg 20:22  And the people the men of Israel encouraged themselves, and set their battle again in array in the place where they put themselves in array the first day.

Jdg 20:23  (And the children of Israel went up and wept before the LORD until even, and asked counsel of the LORD, saying, Shall I go up again to battle against the children of Benjamin my brother? And the LORD said, Go up against him.)

Jdg 20:24  And the children of Israel came near against the children of Benjamin the second day.

Jdg 20:25  And Benjamin went forth against them out of Gibeah the second day, and destroyed down to the ground of the children of Israel again eighteen thousand men; all these drew the sword.

Jdg 20:26  Then all the children of Israel, and all the people, went up, and came unto the house of God, and wept, and sat there before the LORD, and fasted that day until even, and offered burnt offerings and peace offerings before the LORD.

Jdg 20:27  And the children of Israel enquired of the LORD, (for the ark of the covenant of God was there in those days,

Jdg 20:28  And Phinehas, the son of Eleazar, the son of Aaron, stood before it in those days,) saying, Shall I yet again go out to battle against the children of Benjamin my brother, or shall I cease? And the LORD said, Go up; for to morrow I will deliver them into thine hand.

Henry:

God's judgments are a great deep, and his way is in the sea. Clouds and darkness are often round about him, but judgment and justice are always the habitation of his throne. We may be sure of the righteousness, when we cannot see the reasons, of God's proceedings.

2. God would hereby show them, and us in them, that the race is not to the swift nor the battle to the strong, that we are not to confide in numbers, which perhaps the Israelites did with too much assurance. We must never lay the weight on an arm of flesh, which only the Rock of ages will bear.

 3. God designed hereby to correct Israel for their sins. They did well to show such a zeal against the wickedness of Gibeah: but were there not with them, even with them, sins against the Lord their God? Those must be made to know their own iniquity that are forward in condemning the iniquity of others. Some think it was a rebuke to them for not witnessing against the idolatry of Micah and the Danites, by which their religion was corrupted, as they now did against the lewdness of Gibeah and the Benjamites, by which the public peace was disturbed, though God had particularly ordered them to levy war upon idolaters, Deu_13:12, etc.

4. God would hereby teach us not to think it strange if a good cause should suffer defeat fore a while, nor to judge of the merits of it by the success of it. The interest of grace in the heart, and of religion in the world, may be foiled, and suffer great loss, and seem to be quite run down, but judgment will be brought forth to victory at last. Vincimur in praelio, sed non in bello - We are foiled in a battle, but not in the whole campaign. Right may fall, but it shall arise.

This is a very interesting part of the bible, from day one, the lord said yes, go out to battle, the lord said it , Go, and they were slaughtered, next they cried out more intensely and the lord again said , yes Go and do battle, a second time they were defeated, , now they inquired of the ARK, the presence of the lord, and the third time they were told, Go do Battle.

 The third time they won. Very strange, as Henry said, We are foiled in a battle, but not in the whole campaign. Right may fall, but it shall arise.


It took three times and many life’s till the battle was won, the third time it was with ease.

Jdg 20:43  Thus they inclosed the Benjamites round about, and chased them, and trode them down with ease over against Gibeah toward the sunrising.

This was the end result, but the lord said, go, do , and twice they were beaten down, but the lord commissioned them and yet they suffered lose, there is a deep lesson in this for all of us.

We may have a commission, we may hear the lord say Go, do this, or do that, and we know it was the lord speaking, and the result was a total lose, what does one do with this?

Most would give up, or say it was their own thinking and direction; a delusion, a false word, most would call it a no go.

In my ministry and life, I have had the lord commission me for a work and it was a total failure, I was crushed, perplexed, I thought, never again will I just go, no matter if I think it's the lord’s commission or not, but saint of God, this is the way it is, we lose, we win, we lose, we win, this keeps us balanced and far from pride.

If you have blown it a thousand times and still have breathe, get up and try again.

The lord moves in odd ways  at times.

I have written on how the lord would not allow Paul to go right or left, but straight ahead till he came to Troas, and open water, we need these directions and a mighty word, a commission can be given. The vision of a man from Macedonia came in Paul’s dream, and they left. What was the results of this mighty and grand commission?

He first whent to  Thessalonica and was only able to stay a month, the jewdizers , persecuted him so much he had to leave, than Philippi, he was stoned to death, or near death. Lord did that vision come from you or me, this cannot be of you, all the persecution, fleeing and such.

 Next it was on to Corinth, Paul came in fear and trembling, do to his two experiences he faced on this Macedonia call-Vision, but he went, a third place, and a mighty church started, reception of the gospel spread like fire in Corinth, odd it took three times, just as our text.

We cannot measure our call, or life many times, by our success, but our failure, or so it would seem. Each time Paul , like me or you, and the army in our text, became more prayerful, tearful and finally the ARK, the power of the lord, and the battle was won, so we can not base a ministry , a call, on anything but step by step direction and continual prayer for direction.

Paul prayed for his thorn to be removed three times, it was not, but he ministered on, it is true the lord moves in three's, the bible is filled with them.

I have planted ministries that failed fast, others did well, and after 2 or 3 years many ended, it is heart breaking, but what do I do, encourage myself in the lord, pray and rest 100% on the lord and never let the enemy say, failed again, if you are forging ahead and not giving up, this shows you have the right spirit and you're doing something right, so never give up as battles increase, it is to train us to do battle and not run, make your stand and never give up, till the lord takes you.

 Have you fallen, get back up, have you blown it, yet again, repent and get back up. Jesus was in the tomb on Friday, but Sunday was on the way, three days by the way. LOL.
