What Is One Of the Greatest Difficulties in the Body of Christ?


One of the greatest problems in the body of Christ is its misunderstanding of how to get the breakthrough.

One of the primary things that God is, is that He is the God of breakthrough.

Ex 15:3  The LORD is a man of war: the LORD is his name.

God is a God of war.

He knows that breakthrough against Satan always requires war.

God knows that victory comes with the breakthrough, and that it takes time.

The majority of the body of Christ fails to appreciate this.

Secondly, God is more than desirous to give us the breakthrough and with that, the victory in everything that He calls us to do.

The majority of the body of Christ is ignorant of this principle, and thus remains in bondage.

Thirdly, the church is ignorant of the weapons of her warfare.

These are a thorough knowledge of the Word of God.

Secondly, persevering, persistent and enduring prayers on our knees until the breakthrough comes, is probably the most important weapon.

Thirdly, faith in what God said will happen.

Most times the breakthrough comes slowly, over days, weeks, even months and even years.

The saint must discern that God IS giving the breakthrough, no matter how slow it comes.

He or she must persevere daily, weekly, monthly and even yearly on their knees cooperating with God’s Spirit until God says that the breakthrough has come.

Then the saint can move on.

Many a time during the process of breakthrough, God teaches the person many different lessons, but He remains faithful to the breakthrough.

Thirdly, is the issue of faith to believe that what God tells you will happen despite the visible circumstances.

Many a time during the process of breakthrough conditions will arise that will make the Word which God promised you seem as an impossibility.

Yet, if we remain steadfast to His Word and to God’s process of breakthrough, He will make it come to pass.

Most of God’s saints do understand then that God is the God of breakthrough.

They do not understand that God will always give them the breakthrough if they coöperate with Him, through persistency, perseverance, and endurance.

The church also does not understand the price to pay for the breakthrough.

The price of the breakthrough will usually cost her everything.

It will require unremitting obedience to every command which the Spirit of God issues.

It will require whole hearted repentance to every knowingly open door to sin.

Oh, but is it worth it at the end?  You bettcha!

Judges 3:5  And the sons of Israel have dwelt in the midst of the Canaanite, the Hittite, and the Amorite, and the Perizzite, and the Hivite, and the Jebusite,

6  and take their daughters to them for wives, and their daughters have given to their sons, and they serve their gods;

7  and the sons of Israel do the evil thing in the eyes of Jehovah, and forget Jehovah their God, and serve the Baalim and the shrines.

8   And the anger of Jehovah burneth against Israel, and He selleth them into the hand of Chushan-Rishathaim king of Aram-Naharaim, and the sons of Israel serve Chushan-Rishathaim eight years;

9  and the sons of Israel cry unto Jehovah, and Jehovah raiseth a saviour to the sons of Israel, and he saveth them — Othniel son of Kenaz, Caleb’s younger brother;

The body of Christ, most of the time does not want to pay the price for the breakthrough.

My father always said; “ For everything in life there is a price to pay. The greater the thing, the greater the price!”

This is the sad and pernicious state of not only the unbeliever, but for most of the church.

The church would rather remain passive in the face of evil.

She would rather be conquered by the evil, than conquer it.

The sentiment which I hear, is “Well if I must get my head chopped for Christ and die a martyr’s death, then so be it.”

This is fine and dandy, but what about resisting the evil when it’s first perceived  through the warfare of breakthrough, so that you are not martyred and stay alive and effective for the Lord here on planet earth?

But for many, the ditty is to stay asleep until the evil has arrived and then hopefully awake.

We see this in the account of the book of Judges as stated above.

This is why I don’t believe in evolution.

Humanity has not evolved into anything better than what occurred in the book of Judges, thousands of years back.

Many others will never awake.

They will be swept by the evil, succumb to it and die in it.

What a tragic statement for the all-powerful church.

I’d rather assiduously  exercise the weapons of breakthrough when I first see Satan’s evil encroaching on the land.

I don’t know about you.

Hear the words of the Lord in Ezekiel.

Ezekiel 33: 1  Again the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

2  Son of man, speak to the children of thy people, and say unto them, When I bring the sword upon a land, if the people of the land take a man of their coasts, and set him for their watchman:

3  If when he seeth the sword come upon the land, he blow the trumpet, and warn the people;

4  Then whosoever heareth the sound of the trumpet, and taketh not warning; if the sword come, and take him away, his blood shall be upon his own head.

5  He heard the sound of the trumpet, and took not warning; his blood shall be upon him. But he that taketh warning shall deliver his soul.

6  But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned; if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at the watchman’s hand.

7  So thou, O son of man, I have set thee a watchman unto the house of Israel; therefore thou shalt hear the word at my mouth, and warn them from me.

8  When I say unto the wicked, O wicked man, thou shalt surely die; if thou dost not speak to warn the wicked from his way, that wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand.

Backwards, Upside Down, Inside Out, and Flipped Over


The following are three brief visions which God gave to us.

All of them are similar.

All of them represent what God desires to do in the hearts of His people.

All of them also represent what God desires to do in the United States of America, as His body, the church, humble itself and prays for the nation.

The last vision, the fourth one, which I will call, Flipped Over”, was given to me one half years ago.

 

BACKWARDS:

2Ki 20:11  And Isaiah the prophet calleth unto Jehovah, and He bringeth back the shadow by the degrees that it had gone down in the degrees of Ahaz — backward ten degrees.

Isa 38:8  Lo, I am bringing back the shadow of the degrees that it hath gone down on the degrees of Ahaz, by the sun, backward ten degrees’: and the sun turneth back ten degrees in the degrees that it had gone down.

Ps 103:5  Who is satisfying with good thy desire, Renew itself as an eagle doth thy youth.

God told me that if I repented from every known sin and lived in repentance, He would turn the dial of time back in my life twenty years.

This would  put me at the age of thirty-eight.

Different physical ailments commenced at that time in my life.

God told me that He would take me to a point which preceded the commencement of all these afflictions.

He also told me that He would renew my youth as how the eagle does hers.

I believe that this promise holds for every Christian who wants to live in habitual repentance. God will renew your youth so that you may serve Him in health.

 

UPSIDE DOWN:

Last week at church, I saw in a vision the USA turned upside down.

It was  as in a negative of a photo. The USA was not simply upside down, but now Florida was on the left side of the map and California on the right.

God told me that by this, He will work a work in the USA that will go from its bottom, its belly, or foundation, and work itself from the bottom up. This was very encouraging.

If God is going to carry out this, it must begin first in His church first.

Are we willing to be turned upside down  so that God can work from the very roots and foundations of our life, upwards?

I know that I am.

 

INSIDE OUT:

My wife Mary, saw me in a vision as a shirt that had been totally turned inside out. This is the process that is used in bleaching or ironing a shirt.

When I prayed, I saw God turn me inside out so that he could remove the stickers that stick on your socks and are found in weeds, from the inside of my life, brush me clean, and then wash me in His blood.

Afterwards, He would turn me outside in again.

Yes Lord do this in  my life.

 

FLIPPED OVER:

This vision was given to me on April 11th of last year and is self-explanatory

I just got up from my knees after praying for the USA. I was startled by the vision that God gave to me. It was a vision of America as a wheel barrow. When a wheel barrow is full of dirt a man takes it to a designated place, lifts it up by its handles and empties out the dirt. The effect of the wheel barrow lifted up diagonally and the counter effect of the earth’s gravity on the dirt inside efficiently causes all the dirt to empty itself out.

I saw the strong hands and arms of the Lord lift up the USA high from its northeast region such as from Washington DC to Maine. The country was hinged down in California so that it could not be moved from its place. When the Lord lifted up the northeast part of the country the rotation occurred diagonally around that hinge.

Everybody who did not have a living relationship with the Lord Jesus just slid down violently towards California, just as dirt is poured out of the wheel barrow. It was impossible for them to hold on to anything they had.

Those that were in the Lord but had a shallow, lukewarm, and worldly relationship were given a horizontal pole to hold on to. They had to grab on to the pole in dear life suspended horizontally in the fierce wind of the uplifting motion. The wind of action of the Lord pulled all of their clothes from them and they were left totally naked holding on to the pole. This signified that God was going to strip them from everything that was not of Him and leave them bare and naked.

Those that had a strong and committed walk with the Lord were given a seat to sit on and a thick pole in front of them to embrace with their arms. When the Lord did the heavy lifting of the northeast part of the country they were safe, secure and unmoved.

In conclusion, I am utterly encouraged by these four visions.

God is ready to do a thoroughly brand new work not only in us as Christians, but in our beloved nation as well, if we truly mean business with Him.

Joh 9:4  it behoveth me to be working the works of Him who sent me while it is day; night doth come, when no one is able to work:

Let’s interpolate Jesus’ statement to what is occurring in America.

There are many activities that can only be performed by the light of the sun.

More so, in the days of Jesus, with the setting of sun came the rising of the night, and the setting down of most labors, due to light’s absence.

America is entering into a night, and now is, where no one is able to work, save the Lord Jesus.

Do I mean that Americans  sit on their fannies and do nothing?

Of course not. America is one of the globe’s busiest countries.

By its palpable rejection of God, America is wedged in a variety of profound and insuperable problems which she can no longer resolve.

Any…

I am not about to make a  political statement, but one which depicts the finickiness of fallen human nature, verifying the eternal accuracy of Jesus’s words.

Senator Harry  Reid decried foul when Mitt Romney would not release his tax returns.

When he does, instead of apologizing to Romney for falsely accusing him, which he should do at once, he blames Romney of hiring tax advisors who are wizards of sorts.

Romney gives thirty percent of his earnings to charities, which should be a sober lesson in unmitigated generosity to all of us.

But his generosity, say some,  is meted out so that Romney can…

The Word Ruler


 Eph 6:12  because we have not the wrestling with blood and flesh, but with the principalities, with the authorities, with the world-rulers of the darkness of this age, with the spiritual things of the evil in the heavenly places;

The term, “world-rulers” of the darkness,  kosmos krator, in the Greek, appears only once in scriptures.

The words for krator or kratos mean dominion, dominator.

Dominion is the external or visible manifestation of power which conquers and subjugates others.

The word kosmos is where we get cosmos, defining different world systems.

Paul discusses that Christians are involved in a spiritual, at close quarters, wrestling match with Satan’s unseen forces.

Paul makes it clear, that there are powerful demonic forces which are specifically designated to influence and dominate socio cultural and economic and political systems to the will of Satan.

Today, at the beginning of the third day of the fast God showed me a kosmos krator or “world ruler” of the darkness.

This demonic entity looked like a large manta ray/ butterfly.  There was a very small head upon it voluminous body and thick wings.  The body was gray.

Upon its head there was a moderately small and glittery crown.  It looked like diamonds. Its glittery effect indicated to me that the crown was fake and so was its authority. Yet, through lies, the kosmos krator effectively dominates many world systems.

I saw the kosmos krator gliding its huge wings over different parts of my body and mind. In every place which it did, an adverse reaction was triggered upon me.

God did not tell me to pull down the kosmos krator down from the heavenlies , which by the way is an incredibly dangerous thing to do.

We never see the Bible instructing us to pull down demonic strongholds from heaven, only our mental strongholds, imaginations and knowledge.

A good pastor friend of mine was found dead in an apartment in his mid-fifties. He had had a habit of doing spiritual warfare by pulling down demonic strongholds over Sedona, Arizona, the new age capital of the USA.

Rather, this morning God told me to break agreement with the kosmos krator over every area where it had ben affecting my body and mind.

When I did that, the kosmos krator left me.

The disfranchisement of a vote and the voter.


MSNBC called it “an awkward moment.”

What do you call it?

I have not watched any of the conventions. I was startled by a clip which I saw from the DNC, though. It was scary. God and the Jerusalem were taken out of the DNC.

Personally I did not care because God accomplishes His will independently, regardless of what platform someone puts Him on.

But then like the Keystone Kopps under pressure, the DNC decided to reinstate God.

The speaker said that a 2/3 vote majority was needed on the floor. It was clear to everybody there that they did not have the 2/3 vote to put God back. At best it was 50/ 50.

In fact, God should have never been put back in the DNC platform, but He was.

What was scary was that the votes of the delegates at DNC were disfranchised yesterday.

The will of the voting delegates was poo pooed out of political pressure.

My friends, this is what happens in African politics.

If we begin to disfranchise voters and votes what will happen?

Watch the disfranchisement of a vote and the voter.
