A Planet Called Deception


Matt 24: 4   And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.

Look continually to yourself that nobody will “planetize” you.

The word “deceive” in the Greek. It is the word “planet”.

In Greek mythology, planets were called wanderers or the wandering ones.

Thus, this suggests the word deception. A person whom is being deceived aimlessly wanders away from the truth. The word planet is also used for “error”.

In the United Sates we see the prince of the authority of the air using technology to “planetize” people.

Eph 2:2(EB)  In which at one time ye walked, according to the age of the world, according to the prince of the authority of the air, of the spirit that now energiseth in the sons of disobedience,

Technology is an awesome tool which greatly benefits humanity and the work of the kingdom of God. The devil uses technology in the lives of those whom are not paying attention to their walks with God to cause them to planetize or wonder from the truth of the Word of God. Whereas Africa gets hit by a demon of poverty, the USA is getting wacked by a demon of distraction.

I am amazed at how many Americans the devil has planetized to cause them to look down at their technological gadgets.

When you get on an airplane to go to east Africa, you will find many looking down as well.  They, however, are looking down at their Bibles!

Matt 24:5  For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.

“Many for will be coming upon the name of me, saying I am the anointed and will planetize many.”

The word “deceive” in verse 5 is in the active voice. This means that deceivers will actively planetize unassuming people who are not paying attention to themselves and their relationships with God.

2 Thess 2:7  For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.

“For the mystery of lawlessness, or what is void of all law, is now energizing, until the one who has the power to detain and keep it in check even at present, is from the midst becoming.”

A mystery is something that is hidden or that lives in the darkness of secrecy. A mystery must be revealed, since it cannot be accessed through our physical senses.  A mystery once totally veiled is now progressively revealed.

At the moment that Adam and Eve disobeyed God, the mystery of iniquity kicked in. Men in those days lived to be over 900 years of age. The progressive revelation of the mystery of iniquity has eaten up into the lifespan of mankind throughout the centuries.

8  And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy (non effectual) with the brightness of his coming:

And then will the Unlawed one will be uncovered whom the Lord will consume with the spirit of his mouth and will render useless and nonoperational with the epiphany of His presence.

This verse obviously talks about the Antichrist. The prevalent thing to notice here is that the Anti-Christ a man whom is void of all law, obviously a figure who thrives on anarchy, will be uncovered at a set season.

It does not take much to see the mystery of lawlessness, or better said anarchy, at work than in those who today contest that the legitimacy of the constitution is not prevalent or foundational to our country.

The voiding of the constitution if it were to succeed will bring anarchy.

Wherever the manifestation of Christ is, there is His work of making non effectual all that is sin.

9  Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,

“Whose presence is in accordance to the energizing of Satan with every ability, signs and wonders found in what is pseudo.”

The word for “lying” in the Greek is pseudo. Something pseudo is a falsehood, a sham, something spurious.  What is pseudo, does not have to be entirely false. It just needs to contain enough half-truths to cause people to planetize from the truth.

10  And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

“And with every seduction, guile, and deceitfulness of doing what is not right in the eyes of God.”

Every disobedience towards God brings guile and deception as it seduces you.  This mystery of anarchy is energized in all of those that without an agape or unconditional love for the Word of God do not heartedly welcome it into their lives. The Word of God must be loved and welcomed, there is no other way!

11  And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:

“And through this act of unwelcoming His Word, God sends them “ an energy of planetizing” for the purpose of them believing what is pseudo.”

This type of energizing is an activation that will cause people to wonder aimlessly into error for the express purpose of believing what is false.

Is The Devil Behind Door Number One, Two, or Three?


Timothy 2:26  And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will.

·Greek: That they may return to soberness or awake out of the snare of the devil, after having being hunted down, taken captive, and caught alive by the devil, to do his will.

The devil is actively hunting to “catch alive” by trapping our free will and make it to become passive, so that his will in us can then become active.  This is His work with believers and the unchurched.

Passivity, is the great tool of the devil. The life of faith is not always busy, but always active. So much of the church is passive in their faith, in the studying of God’s word and in prayer. You better be sure that the devil is behind all of this  by breeding passivity.

Fear is another lie of the enemy to generate passivity in us, through paralyzing fear.  We cannot remain passive through fear. We are living in a lie, if we do so.

The lure to social media, if it distracts us from spending daily time with God, is a ploy of the devil.

The Bible is our map to life. Without the map, what can we do?

1 Peter 5:8  Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:

Be temperate, dispassionate and serious in your life, be awake and watchful, because your opponent in a suit of law, the devil, as a roaring lion, conducts himself around, arduously and earnestly seeking, whom he may drink down, swallow, consume, and destroy.

Yep. How much of this do we see around us?

2 Cor 11:14  And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed (metaschematizo)  into an angel of light.

Metaschematizo: To alter the outward appearance without a significant inward change of the heart.  The tense is in the present/ middle, which means this deceptive transformation is a continuous spiritual tactic of the enemy.  It is closely illustrated to an architectural schematic, and shows us how the enemy can change the schematic of things, and make them pleasant to the eye.

Sounds like political correctness, where the enemy wipes out the very foundations and principles of a nation under the guise of not offending others, by making us “sugar coated pleasant” to others. Yuk!

Or how many of our politicians offer external changes while their hearts have not changed for the better?

The work of Jesus is to change the inside first, and then the outside. The work of the devil is to change the outside while leaving the inside just the wicked same.

Eph 4:27  Neither give place ( topon) to the devil.

Topon : opportunity, power, occasion for acting

Another version renders “giving place”, as the construction of a landing strip, or an airport runway on our very being, for the devil to land upon!

Only our sin and disobedience can do that.  Any time that we are in willful disobedience to the Lord, we automatically open up an airport on our very backs, where the enemy can land and take off at his fancy.

How many in the church are doing that by disregarding God and His Word?

The devil only respects the Word of God. If we compromise the Word to accommodate a social or cultural view we have created a topon in our lives.

Everything has to go back to the Word of God.

Eph4:16  Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.

This verb tense is in the past.  We are expected once and for all, for us to have had the shield of faith lifted up at all times, and never ever put it down again!  We must walk by faith and not by external appearance. Faith must be our default live.

1 John 5:4  For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.

The word for overcome pertains to a victor or conqueror.  This verse is in the past tense.  It is an accomplished fact that our obedience to God will always cause us to conquer and come off victorious over the world system, the flesh and Satan. If we walk closely with God, our default will be that we always get the victory.

Unbelief has a power of its own, and will cause us to be defeated if we are not careful.

 Matthew 13:58  And he did not many mighty works there because of their unbelief.

The Greek translation here is in the absolute negative.  This tells us that it was a virtual impossibility for Jesus to do miracles through people’s lack of faith or disobedience.

Because America has rejected God, a spirit of unbelief has hit our land. Our idol has become self-protection, instead of the risk taking which faith generates.

Political correctness is founded on fear. The fear that if we offend, we will be hurt back.

Unbelief is also closely joined together with disobedience.  Obedience to God always requires faith.   A nation that has become arrogantly disobedient to God is one which lives in unbelief and fear.

2Thess 2:7  For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.

8  And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:

Out of our Greek New Testament this verse tells us, that at the manifestation of the presence of God, the wicked one is destroyed.

The word for “destroy” means to make useless, idle, or ineffective, the works of the Evil One.  If  the manifest presence of the Lord renders ineffective and useless the schemes of the enemy, why are we bent not to allow the gifts of the Spirit to be in use?

The manifest presence of God is evident in prayer, worship and spending time in God’s presence. Is it not like the devil to make us so distracted so that we don’t spend time in God’s presence and remain in his chains? We need to see what the devil is doing behind the scenes.

Mat 8:16  When the even was come, they brought unto him many that were possessed with devils: and he cast out the spirits with his word, and healed all that were sick:

Note the sequence of events in Mathew eight.  First Jesus cast out the evil spirit, and then He healed their physical sicknesses. Do you see the order?  The evil spirit had to be cast out first, before Jesus was able to heal the sick.

Am I saying then that all of physical sicknesses are caused by demonic oppression?

Absolutely not, but many are. Yet to the delight of the devil, the church has almost forgotten about him, attributing all maladies to the food we eat,  and even Al Gore’s global warming.

Exodus 15:26  And said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the LORD that healeth thee.

Yeap!

Deuteronomy 7:15  And the LORD will take away from thee all sickness, and will put none of the evil diseases of Egypt, which thou knowest, upon thee; but will lay them upon all them that hate thee.

Is “Attention Deficit Disorder” or many of these so-called “syndromes and disorders” a real thing?  I believe so.

I think that in part we are dealing with dysfunctions that have always been always there but are now being identified.

However, I believe that behind everything that we are now calling a disorder or a syndrome, the devil and his minions have stuck their hands into the pot.

The church has been duped in part, by the enemy, to treat these modern day “disorders” and “syndromes’ from a purely physical/ emotional fashion.

As long as he deceives us so that we leave him out of the picture, he is quite content and laughs at us.

We must get back to the discerning of evil spirits in many of these situations, and distinguish the physical from the spiritual.

Ephesians 2:2  Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:

Many of us imagine that Ephesians chapter two is Paul’s discussion focusing on the unchurched.  I  disagree.

The Greek word for worketh is defined as giving energy to.

This particular verse is in the present participle.  The sons of disobedience energize the schemes of the devil on a continuous basis.

The word for disobedience is being non-compliant.  If a Christian is continually incompliant in an area of his or her life, will he or she energize the works of the devil? I believe that there is no difference; the devil is a legalist.  He will always get in wherever he is given an open door.

The same degree of obedience or disobedience to the Lord, will result in the same degree of energizing or disengaging the works of the devil in our lives.

Ephesians 6:11  Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.

The word for wiles is methoedeia.  The word is self-descriptive.  It talks about methodology, or methods. It is obvious that the devil’s methodology has to do with scheming, trickery, deceit and so forth.

How many methods is the devil using in America? One of the greatest is distraction through social media and technology.

Secondly,  is  the temptation for us to hate to read and never grow in the Word of God, and resort to reading Face book status messages instead.

If we become lazy in the reading of God’s word we will stay in the devil’s chains.

Ephesians 6:12  For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

It is important to realize that the enemy only has methodologies and schemes available to him. These are lies and deception, which he wages at very close quarters.

The battle is in our minds. This is why we need a brain washing by the Word of God.

We can see him working in political circles and the media, using the tools of lies and deception. People fall for the lies because their spirits are dead and are unable to distinguish between truth and lies. Only the Holy Spirit can us a spirit of discernment.

Wrestle: It is an arm to arm combat in which the enemy endeavors to throw us down and we must exert through our obedience to God, to throw him  down.

The word for wrestle in the Greek is pale and it describes a conflict which is decided, when the winner is able to grasp his opponent and hold him down with his hand upon his neck.

Is the devil succeeding in grasping the church by the neck and trying to pull her down?

Mt 11:12  And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force.

The kingdom of God suffers from violence, and only the spiritually violent take it by force.

The American church has sunk down into complacency and passivity, the opposite to a life of spiritual violence in taking God’s goods back from the hands of the enemy. We must repent.

Mt 3:2  And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.

Repentance, is usually not a feeling of remorse. It comes from two words defined as, having a change of mind.

Repentance is the transformation or renewal of our minds, by the Word of God.

Jesus commands us to repent because the kingdom of God is here. Repentance allows us to do the works of the kingdom.

Philippians 2:12  Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.

Paul commands us to work out, carry out, and carry out absolutely everything to completion that pertains to our salvation, and that with utmost serious cautiousness.  No stone can be left unturned.

The verb tense is in the present middle, which means that the work must be our own.  Salvation never comes out from passivity, laziness, pew sitting, and disobedience.

We must hear and find out what the Holy Spirit tells us to do, but the activity must be ours, and it must be constant and in perfect agreement with the voice of the Spirit.

Rev 12:11  And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.

The true Greek interpretation; we have overcome Satan by means of the blood of the lamb and by means of the word of our martyrdom.

The word for testimony in our New Testament is our English word, “martyrdom.”

Indeed, Christians throughout the ages have suffered physical death on account of their faith.  For most of us living in modern day year 2000, our occasions for martyrdom are a spiritual/ emotional one.  The cross of Christ, is activated to put or sinful self-life to death.

1 Cor 5:8  Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness; but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.

2Cor 1:12  For our rejoicing is this, the testimony of our conscience, that in simplicity and godly sincerity, not with fleshly wisdom, but by the grace of God, we have had our conversation in the world, and more abundantly to you-ward.

 2 Cor 2:17  For we are not as many, which corrupt the word of God: but as of sincerity, but as of God, in the sight of God speak we in Christ

In the above three verses, we see that the word sincerity contains within its root the word for “sun” in the Greek .

Only a life of purity before the Lord will make us into a clear windowpane by which the rays of the sun or “The Son” can shine through.

An impure life will make us into a dirty piece of glass through which the image of the Lord can hardly be seen.

If the enemy cannot see the sunlight of the Son of God, he shall not leave us alone until the day and the time that he does, and if he does.

Remember our enemy, the devil, is the greatest legal lawyer.  He will claw and cleave for every inch of us that has not pass by death into resurrection.

Secondly, part of our responsibility for generating purity before God, is found in our consciences.  Our conscience has one of the most powerful manifestations of the voice of the Holy Spirit.  Its purpose is to either defend or reprove each, and every action of our lives.

 I Tim 3:9  Holding the mystery of the faith in a pure conscience.

2 Tim 1:3  I thank God, whom I serve from my forefathers with pure conscience, that without ceasing I have remembrance of thee in my prayers night and day;

To effectively serve God, we must serve Him through our conscience.  The subject of the conscience is extensive and we do not have time and space to study it here.

Yes, we must serve God through our conscience, but first of all our consciences must likewise be taken through the cross.  A guilty, condemned, performance oriented conscience found in many a believer, will be a poor barometer of the voice of God.

Roman 16:19  For your obedience is come abroad unto all men. I am glad therefore on your behalf: but yet I would have you wise unto that which is good, and simple concerning evil.

20  And the God of peace shall bruise Satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen.

Simple concerning evil, is our being harmless, and being matured into a Christian life that eventually becomes unmixed with evil.  It is as the purity of a wine that has no sediment in it, and of a fine metal that has no admixture of alloys.

The simple person concerning evil is one whom is free from guile, deceit and lives in innocence before the Lord.

What is the promise of God for this type of a believer?  God Himself will bruise Satan underneath such a person’s feet.

The promise of God is greater in the Greek than in our English.  To bruise Satan, is to shatter and crush him to pieces underneath our feet.  What an encouragement for us to continue to purify ourselves before our God!

2 Corinthians 7:1  Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.

Notwithstanding, it is the Lord who purifies out.  However, we must work out our salvation with fear and trembling.

The “let us cleanse ourselves” is in the subjunctive mood.  This grammatical word structure tells us this.  Our failure, or success, in purifying ourselves through obedience, and the work of the Holy Spirit, is strictly tied up to the action of our will.  The subjunctive always warns us that the action is not automatic, but conditional upon something else.

God will not automatically purify us.  Through our own volition and will, we shall obey God and become free, or disobey Him and continue in bondage for the rest of our lives.

Blessings on this Friday!

The Battle: Deception and Victory Over The Demonic


1Ti 4:1  Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;

Shall depart- The word is to “apostatize.”

Seducing spirits.  The same word for that of “error.”  The word for error in scriptures is from where our word “planet” comes.  A planet is defined as a “wonderer”, and error means to wonder from the truth.

Doctrines of devils are promoted through teachers that have fallen into error, wandering from the truth through their own sins. and the influence of demons.

Please see Paul’s order. Seducing spirits, which cause to wander, allow us to pay heed to doctrines of devils.

2  Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;

Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;

Speaking lies in hypocrisy; should read – Through the hypocrisy of those that speak lies.

Conscience seared with a hot iron; should read- Branded in their conscience.

Let us look at the progression of deception;

When Christians do not know and live by the truth of the gospel that is molded as a pattern of “sound words” (healthy words) they will pay heed to doctrines of devils.

This is what is rampant today in the Body of Christ.

We are brought to believe the doctrines of devils when seducing spirits, which causes the believer to wander from the truth or fall into error, deceive us.

1Tim4:7  But refuse profane and old wives’ fables, and exercise thyself rather unto godliness.

Exercise thyself; Comes from the word for gymnastic which in turn comes from the word gymnos, which is defined as “being naked.”

The practice in the days of Paul was for athletes to exercise almost naked to be unhindered as possible for vigorous training.

Godliness is our way of life, which makes us pleasing unto God.

For us to attain to all that the Lord has for us, we must vigorously train in His will, spiritually naked, as to be untangled from distractions, idols, and worldly affairs.

1 Timothy 6:19  Laying up in store for themselves a good foundation against the time to come, that they may lay hold on eternal life.

There is big difference between getting saved, going to church and performing religious activities versus that of “laying a hold on eternal life.”

To lay hold on, is to grab on to, pull in, and make it our own possession

The Lord is never satisfied with our simple conversion and even our faithful attendance in church.  He wants us to experience as much of the fullness of eternal life as possible while in our earthly tent, which is to know God through the fullness of the revelation of His Son within our lives.

 Ephesians 2:2  Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:

Many of us imagine that Ephesians chapter two is Paul’s discussion focusing on unbelievers.  I disagree.

The Greek word for worketh is defined as giving energy to.

This particular verse is in the present participle.  It signifies that the sons of disobedience energize the scheme of the devil . The word for disobedience is being non-compliant.

If a Christian is continually non compliant in an area of his or her life, will he or she energize the works of the devil? I believe that there is no difference; the devil is a legalist.  He will always get in wherever he is given an open door.

I also feel that the same degree of obedience or disobedience to the Lord will result in the same degree of energizing or disengaging the works of the devil in our lives.

1 Cor 5:8  Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness; but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.

2Cor 1:12  For our rejoicing is this, the testimony of our conscience, that in simplicity and godly sincerity, not with fleshly wisdom, but by the grace of God, we have had our conversation in the world, and more abundantly to you-ward.

 2 Cor 2:17  For we are not as many, which corrupt the word of God: but as of sincerity, but as of God, in the sight of God speak we in Christ

In the above-mentioned three verses, we see that the word sincerity has within its root the word for “sun” in the Greek.  Only a life of purity before the Lord will make us into a clear windowpane by which the rays of the sun or “The Son” can shine through.

An impure life will make us into a dirty piece of glass through which the image of the Lord can hardly be seen.

If the enemy cannot see the sunlight of the Son of God, he shall not leave us alone until the day and the time that he does, and if he does.

Remember our enemy, the devil, is the greatest legal lawyer that this universe will ever see, apart from God Himself.  He will claw and cleave for every inch of us that has not pass by death into resurrection.

Secondly, part of our responsibility for generating purity before God, is found in our consciences.  Our conscience contains one of the most powerful manifestations of the voice of the Holy Spirit.  Its purpose is to either defend or reprove each, and every action of our lives.

 I Tim 3:9  Holding the mystery of the faith in a pure conscience.

2 Tim 1:3  I thank God, whom I serve from my forefathers with pure conscience, that without ceasing I have remembrance of thee in my prayers night and day;

To effectively serve God, we must serve Him through our conscience.  The subject of the conscience is extensive and we do not have time and space to study it here.

Yes, we must serve God through our conscience, but first of all our consciences must likewise be taken through the cross.  A guilty, condemned, performance oriented conscience found in many a believer, will be a poor barometer of the voice of God.

This type of conscience produces dead works, which in turn forces us to serve God in our flesh.  I urge you to re-read Romans six, seven and eight as found on the web site.

Once that we learn to serve God in the Spirit, and have become a son and daughter of God, our conscience will become an excellent barometer of our ministry unto God.

Our conscience must be purged of all the dead works consisting of condemnation, guilt, duty and so forth.

Once that the cross has accomplished, we will serve God simply by His voice in our spirit and conscience; No more and no less. This is true sonship.

Hebrews 9:14  How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?

2 Cor 4:1 Therefore seeing we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we faint not Because by the mercy of God, we were called into this ministry, we do not become discouraged. (We know that if God divinely summoned us, He will take care of us, and see us through; therefore we do not lose heart.)

But have renounced (we gave up once, and now forbid) the hidden things of dishonesty (anything that brings shame or disgrace to the gospel, or to us), not walking in craftiness(not conducting ourselves in the doctrines of men), nor handling the word of God deceitfully(by trickery, adulterating or corrupting God’s word for base gain) ; but by manifestation of the truth (but by manifesting the gospel in its accuracy and genuineness through the Word of God and by our lives) commending ourselves to every man’s conscience( we present ourselves to every type of men’s conscience) in the sight of God. (Before the constant gaze of God)

We must remember that the conscience of man is a component of the voice of the Holy Spirit. Paul here says, that the soundness of the apostle’s doctrine and the genuineness of his or her life in accordance to the gospel must be so great, that it must hold up to the scrutiny of the voice of God bearing witness or passing judgment to what the apostle ministers in their hearer’s consciences.

Secondly, the apostle must also deal with the scrutiny of God Himself, whose penetrating look is ever upon the apostle.

John 14:30  Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me.

Binding the enemy is very similar in nature.

Once again we err in part, when we think that our binding of the enemy has to do solely with hurling scriptural phrases at him.

Yes, there is power in this, but the enemy is never completely bound.  Absolute binding of the enemy can only occur, when each and every part of our lives have come into conformity with the will of the Lord, and the enemy is forbidden a place or space where he can afflict us

Matthew 16:19  And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.

In actuality Jesus tells us the following.  The word for bind is “is to forbid”.  The word for loose is “to permit”. Whatever we forbid or bind upon the earth shall come to pass, if it is of the Lord.  This is because God will honor our obedience and count it as forbidden in the heavenly realm.  He will then execute His righteousness to cause us to successfully carry out the binding on earth, which He decreed in the heavenly realm through our obedience.

The same is true of our loosing, or our permitting.  God will bless our obedience and will loose or let in the heavenly realm, when we loose upon the earth.  He then sends forth His power to cause us to execute the act of loosing as was decreed in the heavenlies.

Please remember, that anything, which God does on earth, must first be executed in the heavenlies.

Mark 1:23  And there was in their synagogue a man with an unclean spirit; and he cried out,

Unclean spirit.  Greek: “a complete absence of purity.” This describes for us a bit about the nature of the demonic.

24  Saying, Let us alone; what have we to do with thee, thou Jesus of Nazareth? art thou come to destroy us? I know thee who thou art, the Holy One of God.

Greek:  There is absolutely nothing in common between you and us, Jesus (the) Nazarene, have you come to destroy us?

This is a highly crucial verse in that it teaches us about our true authority before Satan and his demons. The authority that the demonic discern in the Lord, and causes them to tremble is that because of the Lord’s absolute purity, and sinlessness, there is nothing in common between them and the Lord Jesus.

Herein lies our key to overcome the demonic within our lives, and then to be used by the Lord to deal with it in other people’s lives.

Purity is attained as we are baptized into the full revelation of the Son of God and become like Him.  The purity of Jesus baptizes us into His freedom, and His freedom allows for the full operation of God’s dunamis power that resides within Jesus to deal with the enemy. We see the same relationship between Jesus and the devil also spoken in John 14:30

John 14:30  Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me.

Hath nothing   (Greek absolute negative) “The devil has absolutely nothing in me or nothing in common with me.”

Herein lies the true meaning of Biblical binding.

To bind is not to allow or permit something to occur. Genuine binding of the demonic only occurs within a pure life, which has no defilement with what is common with Satan and his cohorts.

At every point of our lives in which purity reigns and the devil shares nothing in common to us, he has been bound.   Now mind you, we will never experience absolute purity and sinlessness on this side off heaven.

Let us be assure that if we live in habitual disobedience and chronic bondage our vocalized confessions of binding the enemy is scorned and mocked by him who will continue to afflict and latch on to us wherever he finds sin.

Matthew 16:19  And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.

Greek: (paraphrase) At whatever point you have once and for all prohibited or disallowed something from happening upon the earth it shall be at the same point eternally prohibited and disallowed in the heavens. At whatever point you once and for all let or allow for something to happen upon the earth, it shall be at that same point eternally permitted and allowed in the heavens.

Mat 12:29  Or else how can one enter into a strong man’s house, and spoil his goods, except he first bind the strong man? and then he will spoil his house.

Greek (paraphrase) No one will have the dunamis power to come into the strong one’s house to change the situation, thoroughly plunder his goods until they are laid waste, and then occupy.  (Like the USA is doing in Afghanistan.)  He must bind the strong one first and then he will be able to thoroughly plunder.

After twenty-two years of serving the Lord Jesus, He is finally dealing with the strong man in my life.  I am of the belief that every believer has a strong man that afflicts him or her.  The strong man is the demon that is last to be bound from our lives.  He is the one that we can discern constantly standing before us face to oppose and withstand us every second of our lives in a variety of deceptive measures.

The Lord has allowed the strong man to afflict me until I have bound every major area of sin in my life through obedience to Him, which has led to liberty in those areas.  After completing this process, the Lord is now dealing with the strongman in my life.  Let us now look at the next set of scriptures.

Luke 11:21  When a strong man armed keepeth his palace, his goods are in peace:

Greek: When the strong one fully furnished with weaponry guards his palace, his goods, wealth, and property lie in peace.

22  But when a stronger than he shall come upon him, and overcome him, he taketh from him all his armour wherein he trusted, and divideth his spoils.

Greek: But when a stronger one than the strong man comes upon him with a hostile intent, attacks him, and conquers him, he takes from the strong man the armor which he trusted in and thoroughly distributes out (to others) the strong one’s weapons and goods.

Jesus is obviously the stronger one.  My friends, the strong man must be defeated in two ways. His binding by us is the point in which there is not one significant area of unrepentant sin left in our lives. Secondly, it is only the revelation of the Lord Jesus laboring in us by His grace, and attacking the strongman as the stronger one, that is effective

With the strong man is finally bound and conquered we find ourselves running, leaping forward, and plundering for the Lord!

Mark 1:25  And Jesus rebuked him, saying, Hold thy peace, and come out of him.

Rebuked him – Greek “To heap something upon someone’s honor.”

All created things have an honor that makes them up.

An honor that belongs to someone, or something, is the glory that makes it into what it is.  Even sickness and sin has a glory, though perverse, that identifies it as a particular sickness or sin, and gives to it its substance and power.

When we rebuke a sickness with faith in the name of the Lord Jesus, we destroy the very substance and power of the sickness.

Hold thy peace – From the word to muzzle something.  Effectively the Lord Jesus commands the demon to be reduced to silence and his activity to be placed in check.

Eph 4:14  That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;

When the church does not have the revelation of the Son of God it grows into doctrines of men which are promoted by things instead than the truth which is promoted through the revelation of God’s son.

The church growing lopsided because it is growing lopsided and being blown around by ever wind of doctrine.

That we may be no longer children.  A transformation must take place.

Nepios literally infants, and other minors that are immature and untaught.

Tossed to and fro dashing or surging waves.  In changefulness and agitation the nepio is carried about by every wind of or degree or doctrine.

The sleight of men is the element of an evil atmosphere,

Dice playing and deception.  Instead of growing up into the revelatory knowledge of Christ, we make philosophies, or things , the so called progressive thought, social and cultural issues and wrong doctrine, the main focus.

Doctrines become divine truth.  Things, blessings, miracles, social and cultural issues becomes the major instead of the minors.

Christian philosophies lead into a false way of Christian life that diverts the nepio fatally from the truth. If we concentrate on things, we shall always be immature.

These philosophies of Christian “things” will not bring the revelation of Christ.  The church will not grow up into all things by Christ who is our all and in all.

The church becomes messed up.  Believers are hurting; the teachers of the doctrines of men become exalted.  Many of the doctrines of men only work when you throw money at them.

Philippians 1:9  And this I pray, that your love may abound yet more and more in knowledge(thorough knowledge) and in all judgment;(discernment)

That your love may abound yet more (but always held bounded within the river banks of a) a full precise and exact knowledge of the things of God and in all discernment.

Judgment is defined as discernment. Likewise charity must be always held in check within the river banks of our discernment of God’s voice and our discernment of what is of God, and what does not come from Him.

We cannot love the world for Christ through our impulses and emotions, or by becoming its savior, our out of a fear and guilt that the world is going to hell in a hand basket.  Such love will never become charity and will eventually burn us out.

10 that ye may approve things that are excellent;( what differs or excels) that ye may be sincere (judged by the sun) and without offence till the day of Christ;

Greek: That you may recognize as genuine upon examination the things that are differing. Your recognition of what differs will allow you to choose only what is excelling or best towards your fulfillment of the things that pertain to Christ.  This will cause you to become so pure that it will allow for the beams of sunlight to shine through you unhindered.  Likewise you will become as one that has nothing that will make others stumble when they see your life before the Lord.

Charity is the product of an accurate knowledge of the Lord, His will, and His Word.  It is likewise the product of being led by the Holy Spirit. Thorough knowledge of the things of God and restricting our lives to His voice will allow for the distinguishing between the good and the excellent. If we choose the excellent God, will purify us so much that we shall be as a clear windowpane that reflects the glory of God to the world.  This develops charity in our lives because God is love.

Poop Eaters and Poop Cleaners and the National Day of Prayer


I attended two events of the National Day of Prayer held by my city in Doral, Florida.

I was encouraged, to say the least.

My family lived in Kenya, Africa, for two years and travelled extensively to East Africa, between 2004-2010.

Except for the poverty and the corruption of Kenya, I loved East Africa.

I was more one with the body of Christ there, than in the USA.

The Kenyan Christians are people with purpose.

They are sold out the Lord, for they have little else.

You ask most children what they want to be, and they know. Poverty has caused them to be focused on God, much more than American children.

Spiritual warfare is greater with the kids of America than those of Africa, because of abundance and distraction.

I feel that Kenyans will surpass Americans educationally. Middle and high schools in Kenya have more sober kids wanting to learn, wanting to get ahead.

There is no money for technology or the purchase of drugs, so vision and purpose for God abounds.

The Kenyan church, except for the issue of poverty, is stronger than her American counterpart.

The phenomena of flying into Kenya from Amsterdam or London will let you witness many Kenyans reading their Bibles at the gates and in the airplanes.

God called my family as missionaries from Africa, back to America.

He said that He needed us more here than in Africa.

Our culture shock was not in going to Kenya. We felt comfortable there.

It came in going back to America and seeing the passive state of the church.

Nonetheless, God loves a good crisis.

He is a master at working good out of the most horrifying situations.

What appeared as hopeless to me concerning the body of Christ in the USA, God is now changing.

Though much of the church still sleeps, what I saw yesterday at the National Day of Prayer confirms what I know.

God cannot be stopped. God always has an army remnant.

There is so strong and uncompromising lot of people whom God is raising up in the USA.

We mainly see them in Christian leadership, but they are intensifying and they won’t be messed around with, for they are fearless in their commitment to Jesus.

They are righteous, and will not be purchased by material wealth.

They are holy and not scared to speak about the ills which envelop American society.

God’s way is never for His church to get involved in culture wars. The issue is not a moral issue, but one of two humanities.

A Christian is a new human being. Christ Jesus, the new human species, is eternal, incorruptible, glorified.

Adamic humanity, is broken, dysfunctional, a slave to corruption, blinded.

Culture wars pit these two humanities together. The results are irreconcilable. It’s like an alien, fighting a human.

God’s way is not war, but to allow this new humanity, to shine bright through people, and those who are broken and confused will want the new.

Isaiah 60:1   Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is raised upon thee.

2 For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee.

3 And the Gentiles shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising.

America is now fulfilling these very scriptures!

God is the only one who can ordain morality.

The arrogance of many in this country has fooled them into redefining God’s morality.

Man cannot ordain morality, and when he does the results are catastrophic.

Moral relativism is the product of dumping out God’s demarcations for morality, into a  morality which is politically correct and will appease everybody.

The consequences are that not only morality becomes relative, but so does truth, in fact, everything.

When there are no absolutes, then there is no unqualified light.

Where there is no light, there is darkness. Where there is no absolute, there is no compass.

The outcome is verse two of Isaiah.

“Darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people.”

Oh, but what a chance now for this strong army of the Lord to shine!

“Arise; shine; for thy light is come,” God is saying!

“Voices in the wilderness of America”, God says, “ Spare not, lift them up, fear not!”

The time is now, to get out of our Christian ghettos and shine for God.

Light shines greatest in utter darkness. Things are comparatively seen best in the realm of opposites.

Darkness shall cover the America and gross darkness the USA, and now is!

Does God wring His hands and command morality crusades?

No!

2 but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee.

3  And the Gentiles shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising.

Let us be that great light and the many sitting in darkness will see and come to it.

America is becoming ripe for a revival devised in the crucible of  utter despair and  the  gross darkness of moral relativism.

God’s judgment hardly is that lightning bolt from heaven.

Rather, if people crave for moral relativism, God retorts , “ Have at it, dude!”

Someone said that if people want to season their salad with the poop of sin, God willingly accommodates it.

When this poop finally turns into pools of diarrhea where many drown,  God hopes that some will cry out  for Him, and they do. I did!

This is God’s judgment.

There is an army which God is rising up in America of light bearers of the gospel.

While many in America are eating the poop and savoring its temporary taste  God is raising up those who can handle and clean the poop.

Here are the photos of the events of the National Day of Prayer.

You must have Face Book and be logged into it to see them.

Why Is Deception Like A Planet?


Matt 24: 4   And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.

Look continually to yourself that nobody will “planetize” you.

I love the word “deceive” in the Greek. It is the word “planet”.  In Greek mythology, planets were called wanderers or the wandering ones. If you look at an astronomical chart you will see that our nine or maybe ten planets circle or “wander” round the sun. Thus, this suggests the word deception. An individual whom is being deceived aimlessly wanders away from the truth. The word planet is also used for “error”.

In the United Sates we see the prince of the authority of the air using technology to “planetize” people.

Eph 2:2(EB)  In which at one time ye walked, according to the age of the world, according to the prince of the authority of the air, of the spirit that now energiseth in the sons of disobedience,

Mind you, technology is an awesome tool which greatly benefits humanity and the work of the kingdom of God. The devil uses technology in the lives of those whom are not paying attention to their walks with God to cause them to planetize or wonder from the truth of the Word of God. Whereas Africa gets hit by a demon of poverty, the USA is getting wacked by a demon of distraction.

I am amazed at how many Americans the devil has planetized to cause them to look  down at their technological gadgets. Many are consumed with self-entertainment. Everybody, everywhere, is always looking down. How can you see what is ahead of you?  Fewer still are looking up to heaven, from where their true helps lies.

When you get on an airplane to go to east Africa, you will find many looking down as well.  They, however, are looking down at their Bibles! This is a phenomena for many Americans to see!

It was Watchman Nee who said, that you never save a drowning man until he goes unconscious in the water, lest his kicking and flaying will cause you to drown as well.  One must wait until he goes unconscious and then pull him out of the water. I think that America is a nation that will have to go unconscious before it gets saved.

Eph 2:2(EB)  In which at one time ye walked, according to the age of the world, according to the prince of the authority of the air, of the spirit that now energiseth in the sons of disobedience,

Ephesians 2:2  tells us that the efforts of the devil is to energize in the lives of those whose to stubbornly and obstinately reject God. This verse not only talks to non-Christians, but to Christians as well. This supports my supposition that a person, or for that sake a nation, will open up doors on itself for the energizing of the devil if it becomes stubbornly defiant and arrogant towards its creator.

America is on a slippery slope towards this. As a matter of fact, the energizing of the devil upon our land is quite evident. In the 50’s America was the head of the world. Today we are descending to become a tail.

Matt 24:5  For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.

Many for will be coming upon the name of me, saying I am the anointed and will planetize many.

The word “deceive” in verse 5 is in the active voice. This means that deceivers will actively planetize unassuming people who are not paying attention to themselves and their relationships with God.

2 Thess 2:7  For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.

For the mystery of lawlessness, or what is void of all law, is right now energizing, until the one who has the power to detain and keep it in check even at the present time, is from the midst becoming.

This complicated verse has been interpreted in different ways.  I would like to highlight some of the most prevalent points. A mystery is something that is hidden or that lives in the darkness of secrecy. A mystery must be revealed, since it cannot be accessed through our physical senses.  A mystery once totally veiled is now progressively revealed.

At the moment that Adam and Eve disobeyed God, the mystery of iniquity kicked in. Men in those days lived to be over 900 years of age. The progressive revelation of the mystery of iniquity has eaten up into the lifespan of mankind throughout the centuries.

This mystery of iniquity or better said, the absence of all law is active today in our generation and continues to unveil itself until the consummation of this age, when Jesus Christ comes to establish His new kingdom.

In just over one generation, from the 1960’s to the present, we can see the progressive revelation of the mystery of lawlessness in our world.  TV programming is just one aspect of it as the filth of bad language so naturally flows through the mouth of actors. Many times I close the door to my office as not to hear verbosity that truly offends me, and this emanating from innocuous family oriented TV programs. Forty years ago, not even one single of these filthy words would be dreamed of being on TV.

The mystery which is being revealed and planetizes people into more and more lawlessness will probably culminate in the anarchies of societies.  Whereas, nations in Africa are welcoming the gospel, western nations such as the USA are rejecting it. It won’t be long until we perceive so-called third world countries arising to be heads as the richer western nations are becoming tails.  I think that America is a humpty dumpy, sitting on the wall.

8  And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:

And then will the Unlawed one will be uncovered whom the Lord will consume with the spirit of his mouth and will render useless and nonoperational with the epiphany of His presence.

This verse obviously talks about the Antichrist. The prevalent thing to notice here is that the Anti-Christ a man whom is void of all law, obviously a figure who thrives on anarchy, will be uncovered at a set season.  For an anarchist to be adored by the world, it must have also embraced anarchy.  I was reading yesterday, that a new form of terrorism being executed in Europe is promulgated by anarchists.

It does not take much to see the mystery of lawlessness, or better said anarchy, at work than in those who today contest that the legitimacy of the constitution is not prevalent or foundational to our country.  The function of the mystery of lawlessness can be seen in all of those who want to strip foundational premises which have supported the beneficial growth of nations.

The voiding of the constitution if it were to succeed will bring anarchy. We must see with the eyes of the Spirit and perceive that the prince of the authority of the air is attempting to ram the mystery of anarchy at full speed into America. Where there is anarchy, another type of government can step in.

As Christians we can sit passively by, then die, and leave this mess to our children, or we can pray and fast and refuse to planteize from the truth of God’s word, no matter what comes.

Wherever the manifestation of Christ is, there is His work of making non effectual or non-functional all that is sin. This is why it is so important to spend time in the presence of the Lord Jesus.

9  Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,

Whose presence is in accordance to the energizing of Satan (diabolos/ the one who hurls or throws accusations) with every ability, signs and wonders found in what is pseudo.

The word for “lying” in the Greek is pseudo. Something pseudo is a falsehood, a sham, something spurious.  What is pseudo, does not have to be entirely false. It just needs to contain enough half-truths to cause people to planetize from the truth.

10  And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

And with every seduction, guile, and deceitfulness of doing what is not right in the eyes of God.

Every disobedience towards God brings guile and deception as it seduces you.  This mystery of anarchy is energized in all of those that without an agape or unconditional love for the Word of God do not heartedly welcome it into their lives. The Word of God must be loved and welcomed, there is no other way!

11  And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:

And through this act of unwelcoming His Word, God sends them “ an energy of planetizing” for the purpose of them believing what is pseudo.

I can’t think of a more convicting verse probably the whole Bible.  For those who obstinately reject God in their arrogance, He allows the devil to energize in their lives. This type of energizing is an activation that will cause people to wonder aimlessly into error for the express purpose of believing what is false.

We cannot blame God for this. God did everything in sending His only Son into the world to save humanity. If people choose to reject God and mock Him, they open up a door into their minds and hearts for the demon that administers the energy of planetizing to cause them to aimlessly wonder.

12  That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

In order those might be judged who choose not to believe the truth but rather take delight in sin and disobeying God.
