AN EVERY DAY PRAYER / PRAYING FORWARD

I believe that this prayer was given to me by Father to show me that His command to “pray without ceasing” was LITERALLY possible.

PRAYING FORWARD as Lord Jesus did: John 17:20
Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which SHALL BELIEVE on me through their word;
___________________________________________________________

Father, I thank You for this day; for Your bountiful blessing; Your great love; and Your plenteous mercy.

I commit this day unto You with thanksgiving; asking You to bind Satan in my life today, in the Name and through the blood of Lord Jesus. Put a hedge of thorns of protection around me. Keep me and lead me in the Way Everlasting; perfect that which concerns my spirit, my soul, my body and my mind; send Your angels before me to make my way safe and straight; for Your glory’s sake I ask it with thanksgiving, in Jesus Name.

Forgive me Father, for all of my sins: in words, in thoughts and in deeds; of omission and of commission; and also for presumptuous sins and I thank You. Let not presumptuous sins have dominion over me and let not the foot of pride come against me in any way, shape, form or fashion for Your glory’s sake.

Instead, let the words that I speak and the thoughts that I think be acceptable in Your sight oh Lord; for You are my Strength; my Redeemer; my Portion in this life. My times are in Your Hands and without You, I can do nothing because You have all power; You know all things; You see the end from the beginning; You call those things that are NOT, as though they were. Nothing catches You by surprise; and Nothing is too hard for You.

Make me a man after Your Own Heart today: a man who is full of Your Spirit and led by Your Spirit; a man who is full of faith; full of discernment; full of love and good works; a man who is full of Your knowledge, wisdom and understanding in the things that pertain to this life and godliness; a man who is gentle, patient, quick to hear, slow to speak, and slow to anger; a man who is teachable and able to teach; and all for Your glory’s sake. Put Your servant in the presence today, of all those that You would minister to, through me and all those that You would minister through, to me. Again, for Your glory’s sake and I thank You in Jesus Name.

I pray for my spouse, exspouse(s), other parent of my children, along with all of their family members; all the children, grand children, step children, children in law, ex step children and all of their family members; asking You to bind Satan in all of their lives today, in the Name and through the blood of Lord Jesus. I ask You to put a hedge of thorns of protection around each one; keeping and leading them in the Way Everlasting; perfecting that which concerns their spirit, soul, body and mind, for Your glory’s sake I thank You in Jesus Name.

Father, I pray for every person who crosses my eye gate or ear gate today and every person who enters my thoughts today. I pray for them and all of their family members; asking you to bind Satan in each of their lives today, in the Name and through the blood of Lord Jesus. Put a hedge of thorns of protection around each one of them; keeping and leading them in the Way Everlasting, for Your glory’s sake and I thank You in Jesus Name.

I pray for the President and all of His family members; and all on planet Earth who are in authority in any capacity and all of their family members. I ask You to bind Satan in all of their lives today, in the Name and through the blood of Lord Jesus; put a hedge of thorns of protection around each of them; keep and lead them in the WAY everlasting; perfect that which concerns their spirits, souls, bodies and minds; for Your glory’s sake; that we may lead a quiet and peaceful life in this present time.

I pray for Israel and the peace of Jerusalem.

Father, for every vehicle that crosses my eye gate or ear gate today; for every living quarters that crosses my eye gate today; and for every business that crosses my eye gate today: I pray for the owners and their family; the drivers and their family; the occupants and their family; the employees and their families; and the customers and their family. I ask You to bind Satan in all of their lives today, in the Name and through the blood of Lord Jesus. Put a hedge of thorns of protection around each one of them; keeping and leading them in the Way Everlasting; perfecting that which concerns their spirit, soul, body and mind, for Your glory’s sake and I thank You in Jesus Name.

I pray Father, for all those that I’ve met in any capacity through networking / my career / employment and all of their family members. I also pray for all those who have read or interacted with me in any capacity over the internet and all of their family members. I ask You to bind Satan in all of their lives today, in the Name and through the blood of Lord Jesus. Put a hedge of thorns of protection around each one of them; keeping and leading them in the Way Everlasting; perfecting that which concerns their spirit, soul, body and mind, for Your glory’s sake and I thank You in Jesus Name.

Special prayers Father, for backslidden saints. Special prayers for all who would consider themselves my enemy. Perfect that which concerns them in every way.

I pray for all men that they may be saved and come to the knowledge of the Truth before it is everlastingly too late and I thank You in Jesus Name.

These prayers that I pray for and through myself, I pray for and through every person on planet Earth in whom Your Spirit dwells who are my brothers and sisters in Christ; that we may be ONE as You and Lord Jesus are ONE; that ALL men might come to know us by our LOVE FOR ONE ANOTHER.

Let this prayer Father, continue in effect until I come before you again, just in case I get lazy or incapacitated some how. I thank you.

Get glory to Yourself Father in the Earth today as only You can. In Jesus Name I pray. Amen.

ARE WE GREATER THAN OUR LORD?

Audio

Most assuredly, I say to you, a servant is not greater than his master; nor is he who is sent greater than he who sent him. (John 13:16)

Our Lord is not talking “rocket science” here. He is not speaking in parables here. He is not telling us some great mystery that requires “revelation knowledge” to grasp. It’s simple straight forward common sense knowledge. So simple it’s difficult to find any other words to use to say it differently.

Our Lord Jesus acknowledged that our God and Father IS greater than He because it was our God and Father Who did the sending (John 8:42 & 14:28). There shouldn’t be any questions about who is the greater between us and our Lord Jesus, even if He hadn’t sent us (John 17:18-20). The problem is the “grand canyon” between how our Lord views His relationship and responsibility to the One Who sent Him and how we view our relationship and responsibility to the One Who sent us.

As to relationship, our Lord Jesus said many times that He and our God and Father are “One”. When I looked that word up, it had a one word definition: “One”. Who knew? Right away that starts to mess with our minds because our minds tell us that that means that They are the same and if They are the same, how can One be greater than the Other? Never mind that we know and are assured that there is only One God. Don’t worry about it saints; this is where the finite and the Infinite separate; this is where belief and trust kicks in and understanding is nowhere to be found.

For the sake of “The Father and the Lord Jesus are ONE” discussion, let’s make it easy on ourselves and zero in on the fact that our God and Father and our Lord Jesus Christ are single minded; single purposed with no disagreement. Man! That was close!

Well saints, now that we’ve caught our breaths, what are we going to do with; and how are we going to interpret the prayer that our Lord Jesus prayed for us?

John 17: 20 “I do not pray for these alone, but also for those who will believe in Me through their word; 21 that they all may be one, as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You; that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me.

We might attempt to say that, when we all get to Heaven, we’ll all be one then. The problem with that is that the world won’t see it and believe that our God and Father sent our Lord Jesus. So, whatever it means, it’s in the here and now. Not only that, 1 Corinthians 2:16 tells us that “we have the mind of Christ”, present tense.

What is the world seeing when it looks at those who claim to be followers of our Lord Jesus? Forget the world! What do we see ourselves? I’m not sure if anyone could claim that there is oneness in any of the local groups much less the Body of Christ at large. Whatever the reason is for this distortion, our Lord, God and Father is not pleased. If “we have the mind of Christ”, we shouldn’t be please either.

Our present actions as “sent” believers say that we think that we are greater than our Lord Who sent us because we act as though we have the authority to change His program and He has to go along with it. Our Lord’s testimony to the One Who sent Him was “I have glorified You on the earth. I have finished the work which You have given Me to do”. Shouldn’t we be able to say the same to the One Who sent us?

If our Lord’s testimony to the One Who sent Him is not the number one aim and desire of every one of us, in whom the Holy Spirit lives, we cannot claim to be led or filled with our Lord’s Holy Spirit. When our Father’s Holy Spirit is in charge, the work gets done the way our God and Father intended and the world sees exactly what they’re supposed to see. If we can see that we’re not operating with the mind of Christ, we know that our God and Father saw it first; and if we are not willing to judge ourselves and do the right things, we leave Him no choice but to make it right by force.

For the time has come for judgment to begin at the house of God; and if it begins with us first, what will be the end of those who do not obey the gospel of God? (1 Peter 4:17)

We’ll no longer be able to justify leaving things as they are for peace sake or “going along to git along”. “For, if we would judge ourselves, we would not be judged.” (1 Corinthians 11:31)

Think over these things I am saying; understand them and grasp their application, for the Lord will grant you full insight and understanding in everything. (2 Timothy 2:7)

Whether therefore you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all to the glory of God. (1 Corinthians 10:31)

Doing what Lord Jesus did (herbs); Being like Lord Jesus was (weightier matter)

There is a lot of talk, throughout Christendom, about “doing what Lord Jesus did” and not enough talk about “being like Lord Jesus was”.

Many, who take pride in the fact that they think “doing what Lord Jesus did” is what Christianity is all about, also act as if the books ‘Matthew’, ‘Mark’, ‘Luke’ and ‘John’ is the whole Word of God because Matthew, Mark, Luke and John quote Lord Jesus.

Too many saints and religious people too, forget that holy men of God wrote every book in the Bible as they were moved by the Holy Spirit.

2 Peter 1:19-21 And so WE HAVE THE PROPHETIC WORD CONFIRMED, which YOU DO WELL TO HEED, as a light that shines in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts; knowing this first, that no prophecy of Scripture is of any private interpretation, for PROPHECY NEVER CAME BY THE WILL OF MAN, but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit.

2 Timothy 3:16-17 ALL SCRIPTURE is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that THE MAN OF GOD may be COMPLETE, THOROUGHLY EQUIPPED for EVERY GOOD WORK. (man= human being used by Father)

Rightly divided or correctly interpreted by the Holy Spirit, no book of the Bible bears any more weight than any other book.

Too many saints and religious people also seem to willingly ignore the facts that:

1. we are humans with a sin nature and Lord Jesus was God in a human body
2. Lord Jesus was sent to die for the sin of mankind; saints are to die to themselves;
3. Lord Jesus’ earthly mission was to Israel ONLY; ours is NOT;
4. Lord Jesus was under the Law of Moses; we are NOT;
5. Lord Jesus IS Israel’s messiah; He’s our Savior, Lord and King
6. Lord Jesus had signs for John the Baptist and Israel that identified Him as Messiah:

Luke 7:22 Then Jesus answering said unto them, Go your way, and tell John what things ye have seen and heard; how that the blind see, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, to the poor the gospel is preached.

Believers have a sign that is supposed to show ALL mankind that we belong to Christ:

John 13:35 “By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.”

There are many other things that could be listed, but these are sufficient to make the point of why we can’t and shouldn’t put Matthew, Mark, Luke and John above the rest of Scripture.

The fact that our Lord was only sent to the lost sheep of the house of Israel, we MUST allow the Holy Spirit to show us how to distinguish between what was strictly for the Jews and what can be used by the Body of Christ.

Anyone who does the visible signs and wonders that our Lord, His apostles and other saints did is automatically going to draw attention to them. That kind of attention is very appealing to human nature.

Because Lord Jesus did those things and said to His apostles that they would do them too, it is very difficult for some saints to accept that their flesh is behind their drive and focus on doing the visible things that Lord Jesus did.

Many who have experienced some of these things are overcome with pride and don’t even realize it. They see themselves as above their fellow saints who don’t do what they do.

When Lord Jesus was on Earth, He called the religious people of His day hypocrites because they paid tithes of herbs (visible and physical); but left out the more important spiritual matters of the law.

Matthew 23:23 “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you pay tithe of mint and anise and cumin, and have neglected the weightier matters of the law: justice and mercy and faith. These you ought to have done, without leaving the others undone.

The more important spiritual matters that saints are leaving undone today and the things that Lord Jesus did that saints don’t seem too interested in are spelled out in the following Scriptures:

John 5:30 “I CAN OF MYSELF DO NOTHING. As I hear, I judge; and My judgment is righteous, because I DO NOT SEEK MY OWN WILL but the will of the Father who sent Me.”

John 5:41 “I DO NOT RECEIVE HONOR FROM MEN.”

John 8:54 Jesus answered, “IF I HONOR MYSELF, MY HONOR IS NOTHING. It is My Father who honors Me, of whom you say that He is your God.”

John 8:29 “And He who sent Me is with Me. The Father has not left Me alone, FOR I ALWAYS DO THOSE THINGS THAT PLEASE HIM.”

John 14:10 “Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father in Me? The words that I speak to you I DO NOT SPEAK ON MY OWN AUTHORITY; BUT THE FATHER who dwells in Me does the works.”

John 14:15 “IF YOU LOVE ME, KEEP MY COMMANDMENTS.”

John 14:31 “But THAT THE WORLD MAY KNOW THAT I LOVE THE FATHER, AND AS THE FATHER GAVE ME COMMANDMENT, SO I DO.”

John 17:16 “THEY ARE NOT OF THE WORLD, JUST AS I AM NOT OF THE WORLD.”

John 17:20-21 “I do not pray for these alone, but also for those who will believe in Me through their word; “THAT THEY ALL MAY BE ONE, AS YOU, FATHER, ARE IN ME, AND I IN YOU; THAT THEY ALSO MAY BE ONE IN US, that the world may believe that You sent Me.”

There are many many saints who act as though their mission in life is to make sure that Lord Jesus’ prayer never gets answered.

There are many many saints want to do the things that Lord Jesus did, but not many want to be the kind of servant that Lord Jesus was.

The latter is the weightier matters of Christianity. We shouldn’t leave that undone.

THE GREAT COMMISSION DECEPTION

The great commission is a title, given by man, to what were probably the last instructions that Lord Jesus gave to His remaining eleven apostles.

Matthew 28:16 Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, to the mountain which Jesus had appointed for them. 17 When they saw Him, they worshiped Him; but some doubted.

18 And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.

Mark 16:1Later Jesus appeared to the Eleven as they were eating; he rebuked them for their lack of faith and their stubborn refusal to believe those who had seen him after he had risen.

15 He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. 16 Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned.

We know that Lord Jesus had more than eleven followers, but, for some reason He chose to give these instructions to only the eleven. What makes us think that He intended for the rest of His followers to co-op these instructions later.

We think this way because we’ve been taught to by men, who for centuries have taught the saints that this “great commission” is the all-important mission of the Church of Jesus Christ. All over the world they cry: “help us win the world for Christ”; “help us fulfill the great commission”. Why would anyone question this? After all, what could be more important than getting people saved?

The importance of people getting saved is not where the deception is. Part of the deception is the ignoring of the fact that these instructions were given to the apostles and it WAS the apostles who fulfillED it. That’s right saints, the so-called “great commission” was fulfilled during the lifetime of the men who were instructed to do it.

Colossians 1:21 Once you gentiles were alienated from God and were enemies in your minds because of your evil behavior. 22 But now he has reconciled you by Christ’s physical body through death to present you holy in his sight, without blemish and free from accusation— 23 if you continue in your faith, established and firm, and do not move from the hope held out in the gospel. This is the gospel that you heard and that has been proclaimed to every creature under heaven,

Yes saints, imagine my surprise when Father opened these verses to me. So, I had to let Father be true and every man a liar.

Another part of the deception is that because so much emphasis has been placed on “winning the world for Christ”, it has caused saints to abandon Father’s most valuable and effective evangelism tool, which is the LOVE LIFESTYLE OF SAINTS as the Holy Spirit so beautifully displayed for us in Acts 2 and 4.

Acts 2:41 Then those who gladly received his word were baptized; and that day about three thousand souls were added to them.
42 And they continued steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in prayers.
43 Then fear came upon every soul, and many wonders and signs were done through the apostles.
44 Now all who believed were together, and had all things in common,
45 and sold their possessions and goods, and divided them among all, as anyone had need.
46 So continuing daily with one accord in the temple court, and breaking bread from house to house, they ate their food with gladness and simplicity of heart,
47 praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily those who were being saved.

Acts 4:32 Now the multitude of those who believed were of one heart and one soul; neither did anyone say that any of the things he possessed was his own, but they had all things in common.
33 And with great power the apostles gave witness to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus. And great grace was upon them all.
34 Nor was there anyone among them who lacked; for all who were possessors of lands or houses sold them, and brought the proceeds of the things that were sold,
35 and laid them at the apostles’ feet; and they distributed to each as anyone had need.

The LOVE LIFESTYLE OF SAINTS allowed Father to draw and add to the Body of Christ on a daily basis. Absolutely nothing that man has replaced it with has even come close.

The worst deception of all is that trying to fulfill the “great commission” has allowed saints to feel good about themselves while being oblivious to the fact that they have destroyed the testimony of our loving Savior, which is the LOVE LIFESTYLE.

John 13:34 A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another.
35 
By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.”

1 Peter 1:22 You were cleansed from your sins when you obeyed the truth, so now you must show sincere love to each other as brothers and sisters. Love each other deeply with all your heart.

1 John 3: 23 And this is his commandment: We must believe in the name of his Son, Jesus Christ, and love one another, just as he commanded us.

These are just three of the many “love one another” Scriptures. Why do so many saints think that showing Christ’s love to the lost is where the emphasis should be instead of where Lord Jesus said He wanted it to be? Do we know better than He? This also is deception.

Some saints think that every thought that they get is from the Lord. If they implement the idea and get some results, they’re sure it was the Lord so they keep doing it and start teaching others to do it. The truth is that it wasn’t the Lord at all but the flesh. The end results were Father honoring His Word. It had nothing to do with Him giving the idea.

Father does not accept “the end justifies the means”. Anything that we do, we can brag about. Father will have none of that from any of us. Only what we allow Him to do through us will count for eternity and all glory to Him. If we do anything other than the way Father says, there are no eternal rewards regardless of the outcome.

It doesn’t seem to bother saints at all, that they do practically everything, just like the world. There is a saying; “imitation is the greatest form of flattery”. Don’t forget saints, we have an enemy who thrives on deceiving us.

STOP MAKING EXCUSES

“The LORD our God has secrets that He has not revealed to anyone. We are not accountable for them, but we who know Him are accountable forever for all that he has revealed to us. We are responsible to be doers of all of His instructions and not deceiving ourselves by being just hearers. Deut. 29:29 and James 1:22

It is amazing how much time and energy some saints spend on trying to get knowledge that doesn’t do anything for spiritual growth; knowledge that does absolutely nothing to make us more like our Lord Jesus.

Knowledge that the Holy Spirit can use to make more and more of Christ show through us while our humanness shows less and less, just don’t seem to be as interesting to many of us.

Knowledge that the Holy Spirit can use to help us think like our Lord thinks; to help us come to the place where we want to please the Father ONLY and not ourselves; to help us lose the obvious love that many have for this world system and it’s things of fleshly appeal.

The Heart’s desire of our gracious, loving and patient heavenly Father, NOT being fulfilled, such as: Unity of the faith; Oneness of heart, soul and mind; the Love Lifestyle that shows the world that we belong to Him; and the power of our God and Father, through His Holy Spirit in us, to defeat and overcome the flesh and the Devil – all seem to be OK with modern day Christians who act religious, but reject the power of the Holy Spirit that can make them truly Christ-like.

They come up with all kinds of human reasons and excuses as to why our ALL Powerful God and Father can’t achieve these things in us today. This brings shame to the Name of Jesus: the Name that is above All Names and the Name to which every knee will bow.

Jesus replied, “You hypocrites! Isaiah was right when he prophesied about you, for he wrote, ‘These people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. Mar 7:6

Change your mind about your love for this world and the things that are in it! Stop making excuses and pray “not my will Lord, but Yours be done!” Return to your first Love.

THE PROBLEM

The gross misrepresentation of Lord Jesus in so-called ‘Christianity’ today can be traced to hundreds of years of wrong teaching by false and misguided teachers who misuse the Word of God for selfish ambition and dishonest gain. It is also the result of hard hearted, hard headed, unbelieving, flesh controlled and self-seeking saints, who have fallen in love with this present world and the things that it offers.

To correct the problem, Father’s true teachers need to repent of their unfaithfulness; allow themselves to be filled with Father’s Holy Spirit; come out of hiding; and teach Father’s rightly divided Word with boldness. That means, teaching the whole counsel of God without any selfish motives or ambition; holding back nothing nor adding anything to it, by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Father also wants His true saints to repent of our unbelief that has led to our gross unfaithfulness. We need to allow Father’s Holy Spirit to soften our hardened hearts (by whatever means) so that He can again get rid of all the filth and evil in our lives. Only then can we humbly accept the Life changing Word of faith that Father has planted in our hearts; for it alone has the power to save our souls. Therefore, we cannot just listen to Father’s Word; we must also do what it says (by the power of the Holy Spirit, of course). Otherwise, we are only fooling ourselves. (James 1:21-22)

Father’s Holy Spirit started warning us in the first century that just as there had been  false prophets among the people, there would be false teachers among us. Notice how the Holy Spirit went from “false prophets” to “false teachers”. He knew that the Scriptures would be completed and that type of prophet would be no more. (2 Peter 2:1)

We have the prophetic Word of God (the Scriptures) which has been confirmed and completed; and we must pay utmost attention to what is written. The Word of God alone is what the Holy Spirit uses to light our way in this world of darkness. Therefore, everything that is taught MUST agree with what is written. Father’s Word came from His Holy Spirit, not from man. Father’s Word is revealed to us by His Holy Spirit, not by educated man’s interpretation. (2 Peter 1:19-21)

IT IS CRITICAL, that true saints of God; the true Body of Christ realize that most of our Covenant Word was written to us saints; not to so-called gifted leaders of saints with special anointing. As such, each and every one of us is individually responsible to read, study, hear, receive, trust and obey all that is written to us.

IT IS ALSO CRITICAL, that true saints of God; the true Body of Christ realize that regardless of the human mouth pieces, Father’s Holy Spirit is the ONLY teacher of Scripture and the ONLY leader of saints. For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are the sons of God. (Rom 8:14)

The Anointing (which is the Holy Spirit), which all of us have received from Father, lives permanently inside each of us; such that, we have no need that anyone should teach us. The Holy Spirit teaches us the Truth about everything, with no lies mixed in. For this reason, we must never depart from Lord Jesus; but remain in close fellowship with Him, just as His Holy Spirit teaches us to do. We must still search the Scriptures to see if what the ‘mouth piece’ said is what the Scriptures actually said. We must learn to look past the human mouth piece to discern if the Holy Spirit is speaking through them. (1 John 2:27)

Father showed us, through our brother Peter, that even those of us who are called, chosen and belong to Him, can speak by the Holy Spirit (Matthew 16:17) and by Satan (Matthew 16:23).

For this reason brothers and sisters in Christ, we cannot simply believe everyone who claims to speak by the Holy Spirit every time they claim to be speaking by the Holy Spirit. We must test them to see if the spirit that is speaking through them is from Father or Satan. There are many false teachers and prophets in the world and there are many saints who sometimes let their satanic flesh get the best of them. (1 John 4:1)

And now, true saints of God, remain in loyal fellowship with the Living Word, our Lord Jesus, so that when He returns, we may have perfect confidence and not be ashamed at His coming. (1 John 2:28)

Even so, come quickly Lord Jesus.

CLEVERLY DONE!

 

{{Twas the month before Christmas, When all through our land, Not a Christian was praying Nor taking a stand.
Why the PC Police had taken away
The reason for Christmas – no one could say.
The children were told by their schools not to sing
About Shepherds and Wise Men and Angels and things.
It might hurt people’s feelings, the teachers would say; December 25th is just a ‘ Holiday’.
Yet the shoppers were ready with cash, checks and credit; Pushing folks down to the floor just to get it!
CDs from Madonna, an X BOX, an I-Pod; Something was changing, something quite odd!
Retailers promoted Ramadan and Kwanzaa, In hopes to sell books by Franken & Fonda.
As Targets were hanging their trees upside down; At Lowe’s the word Christmas – was nowhere to be found.
At K-Mart and Staples and Penny’s and Sears, You won’t hear the word Christmas; it won’t touch your ears.
Inclusive, sensitive, Di-ver-si-ty
Are words that were used to intimidate me.
At the top of the Senate, there arose such a clatter; To eliminate Jesus, in all public matter.
And we spoke not a word, as they took away our faith; Forbidden to speak of salvation and grace.
The true Gift of Christmas was exchanged and discarded; The reason for the season, stopped before it started.
So as you celebrate ‘Winter Break’ under your ‘Dream Tree’; Sipping your Starbucks, listen to me.
Choose your words carefully, choose what you say; Shout MERRY CHRISTMAS, not Happy Holiday!
Please, all Christians join together and wish everyone you meet MERRY CHRISTMAS. Christ is The Reason’ for the Christ-mas Season!}}  

 

 Cleverly done is exactly right and I might add, cute too! BUT, is this ‘plea’ coming from our God and Father? Is this what Father wants us to be occupied with, when He knows that this celebration is the work of Satan from its beginning? Google it saints! Christmas is not that old. Even in America, there was a time when it was against the law to sing Christmas carols.

 

 Satan knows the true state of the Body of Christ better than most, if not all, Christians. Satan knows that his trickery has made the Body of Christ a greater testimony to his world and its ways than it does to The Christ they claim to know and love. Satan’s trickery has also made saints of God better ambassadors of Earth than of Heaven.

 

 On the other hand, most professing Christians are in total ignorance; thinking that they are doing exactly what Father wants them to do. Sadly, too many of those who profess to know Lord Jesus do not possess Him, which makes their ignorance understandable.

 

 Even more sadly, far too many saints who do possess Lord Jesus are still “milk of the Word” sucking babies, who don’t know the Holy Spirit from emotion.

 

They are oblivious to the exceeding deceitfulness and desperate wickedness of the satanic human nature within them.

 

 They are just as oblivious to the power of Father’s Holy Spirit within them to overcome their satanic human nature. So, they quench and grieve Father’s Holy Spirit every day.

 

 They think and say that their trust is in Lord Jesus, but, their actions, loyalty and devotion says that their trust is in themselves and the man they call “pastor” or some other prideful title; and their devotion and loyalty is to ‘the man’ and the religious organized business that he oversees.

 

 It amazes me, how many of us are willing to receive and pass on cleverly written sayings in email, that do little to nothing for the purposes of God our Father; even to the point of making people feel guilty if they don’t pass it on.

 

 I wonder how many of these same saints would be willing to  write to other saints  and urgently ask and exhort them to urgently contend for and defend our faith, which was once for all handed down to the foundation saints of old.

 

Surely, it does not take a genius or deep thinker, to see that “church” today looks absolutely nothing like “church” in the Bible; neither does the saints of God today look anything like New Covenant saints in the Bible.

 

 Is this not a greater cause worthy of fighting for?
