“But draw thou near hither, ye sons of the sorceress, the seed of the adulterer and the whore. Against whom make ye a wide mouth, and draw out the tongue? Are ye not children of transgression, a seed of falsehood, enflaming yourselves with idols under every green tree, slaying the children in the valleys under the clifts of the rocks? Isaiah 57:3-12 Occultism and its danger has ruined the church of the Living God despite His timely warning against it. From generation to generation, God exposes that horrific hazards associated with this satanic practices, unfortunately, little or no attention is given to the warnings. More so, spoke to Israelites concerning the illusive, destructive and manipulative activities of Satan and the occultists, yet it was not taken seriously, however it diffused into the service and worship of God. Painfully, the children of God are dead ignorant of the devastations caused by this satan’s religion to Godianity and Christianity. The body of Christ is completely ignorance of the existence and presence of occultism, and assumes occultic charisma as from God, unaware that it is from Satan. Because of believers unaware of occultism and its seductive activities, they neglect the warnings of God against them. Today, many believers and churches are under the control of Satan; they profess Christianity, but their lives and works are in sharp contrast to Bible and godliness. Pathetically, majority of these Satan- made and self-claim Christians are pastors, popes, preachers, evangelists, prophets, bishops, rev. fathers, men of God, prophetesses, signs, miracles and wonders workers which attract crowds to their respective churches and outreaches without the public detection except by God’s revelations. Many Christians have also forgotten the Lord’s warning that says, “And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works” 11 Cor 11:14-15. Christians wake up from sleep, slumber and complacence for the body of Christ Jesus is infiltrated with occultists to for subversion of souls to hell fire. The church of Jesus Christ has many false and occultic Christians that constantly attack any godly corrections, rebuke, reprove and admonition as the Lord directed. God made it clear that believers should expect and obviously detect the presence of the transformed Satan and ministers in the church that has been responsible for giving of false: revelations, visions, miracles, dreams, tongues, messages, prophetic utterances, healings, signs and wonders, callings, repentance, gifts and talents, charisma and others that has continued to disintegrate the church , the body of Christ. Because, the church cannot see or detect these occultists, children of the devil, and transformed Satan among them due their naiveness and assumption that anyone that says he or she is a Christian is indeed a Christian. These satanic agents have caused untold damages to Christianity and God, therefore God angrily says, “But draw thou near hither, ye sons of the sorceress, the seed of the adulterer and the whore. Against whom make ye a wide mouth, and draw out the tongue? Are ye not children of transgression, a seed of falsehood, enflaming yourselves with idols under every green tree, slaying the children in the valleys under the clifts of the rocks?” The occultists presence within the church and unable to be seen by the children of God is huge mockery and slap on His face. God without mincing words addressed Satan and the occultists saying; 1. ye sons of sorceress 2. the seed of the adulterer 3. the whore 4. the children of transgression 5. a seed of falsehood Who among the Christians can boldly expose these occultists, powers of darkness and their occultism without being political correct, or fearfully saying do not judge, God knows and hypocritically persuading other to speak against these evil in Christendom? How are you a christian when you cannot detect error, rebuke sins, or hear from God directly on challenging cases? God saw the weakness or cowardice of Christians or believers over occultism, Satanism so HE rebuke them sharply for His children to do likewise without fear or quoting of random scriptures to support their diplomacy. God asked the devil, occultists and demons that have plagued His church saying, “Against whom make ye a wide mouth, and draw out the tongue? Are ye not children of transgression, a seed of falsehood, inflaming yourselves with idols under every green tree, slaying the children in the valleys under the clifts of the rocks? Isaiah 57:3-5. These Satanists or occultists (sorcerers, diviners, magicians, adulterers, whores, ritualists, astrologians, horoscope, voodooists, atheists, agnostics, bigots, philosophers, heathen, religionists, cultists, etc.) gloat at God, pitiably the weak, prayerless and victims of besetting sins are unable see or notice their presence in the church. These planted seeds of falsehood, transgressors inflamed themselves with idols, spells, talisman or charms under every green tree, and slay the children and adults for rituals to the devil. Can imagine these evil and abominations done by these occultists in the church and world? Are not their satanic activities incredible? They are so smart to cover up their tract, evil and wickedness with all deceivableness. Even as God revealing these aberrations, some will even doubt, undermine it and persuade others not believe God’s exposition of occultism and its evil practices. As these children of transgression are in the church, they introduce all forms ungodly practices which ranges from seduction of ministers and flock; initiation of others into occultism i.e witchcraft, familiar spirits, astral projections, flying and eating in the dreams, committing of all forms of immorality in the dreams and real world, clairvoyance, horoscope, etc. There are countless dangers and mysterious occurrences inherent in occultism for they equally attract God’s curses, wrath, judgment and death. Therefore, flee from occultism and its practices for they Satan- oriented and the effect haunts for life unless God’s forgiveness is sought after repentance. Recall that Saul died for his transgressions which he committed against the Lord and even against the word of the Lord, which he kept not, and also for asking counsel of one that a familiar spirit ….HE slew him and turned the king unto David” 1 Chron 10:13-14. Please, turn away from occultism whosoever you because God is displeased with such devilish practices and you cannot prosper.

“Because ye have said, We have made a covenant with death and with hell are we at agreement; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, it shall not come unto us: for we have made our refuge, and under falsehood have we hid ourselves” Isaiah 28:15. The body of Christ cannot continue in ignorance of the presence of occultists, the children of Satan and enemies of God in the world and Christendom. They have devastated, distorted and turned things upside down and inside out in the universe and Christendom at the detriment of innocent souls. The deceived by occultism, Satan and the world are doomed and are swiftly descending to hell fire, a place the devil tells followers that is nonexistent. He deceptively manipulated them into belief that death and hell are theirs, and so they should not be fearful of the threat of them by anyone,especially from the God of the Christians and the Jews. Therefore, God starts early to warn His children of the existence of these satanic religion, practices and volatility of its seductive power on sinful man, yet His timely warnings were overlooked. Today, all and sundry suffers from the effects of occultism in the world and Christendom. Given to the simple means of involvement in occultism, it has spread as wildfire and infiltrated into the society, nations and Christendom. Unfortunately, these occultists are the rulers or leaders of the people and world. As leaders in the various positions of the world,have diplomatically introduce different branches of occultism to the led., who in turn infect and transfers the spirit of occultism to others that are novice or naive. Once possessed by occultism spirit, the new victims become the workshop of Satan and demons. The devil immediately pour hatred, resentment, and rejection of God in their hearts and controlled them to do his evil biddings or activities. Depending the hierarchy of the occultists, they are promoted to participate in astral travels to unreal world for various purposes; covenants with Satan without blowing their trumpets. Therefore, God exposes the the evil they do and their deceptive thoughts in at their diverse meeting places. Because their understanding and conscience are darkened and seared with hot iron of Satan, they blindly and unashamedly state, “We have made a covenant with death, and with hell are we at agreement; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, it shall not come unto us: for we have made our refuge, and under falsehood have we hid ourselves” Can you imagine this foolishness? The devil furnishes the occultists with falsehood, falsehood, false hope, protection, government and world because their eyes are blinded and dead, although they alve, do their normal activities and others on earth. How can sane person make covenant with Satan; death and hell and beliefs that God’s judgment and punishment for sins, i.e. the overflowing scourge in hell fire cannot come on them? How can a normal human covenant with evil, wickedness, father of all lies and deceptions and thinks that he or she cannot be sent to hell fire? How can the occultists and Satan prevail against God, or their covenant with death and hell fire are real, can save them even with their denial of God’s existence? Although, the devil inspires idolatry, whoredom, satanic worship, with lies, deceptions and evil speaking against God, therefore God asks them, “Against whom do ye sport yourselves? Against whom make ye a wide mouth, and draw out the tongue? Are ye not the children of transgression, a seed of falsehood, Inflaming yourselves with idols under every green tree , and slaying the children in the valleys under cliffs of the rocks? Isaiah 57:4-5. Do not you see men and women mocking God, Bible and Jesus Christ, telling fans and others that there other ways of getting to God, but which God? Don’t you see these occultists endorsing homosexuality (LGBT), abortion, mercy killing, atheism, Islam, Buddha, hindu, Baha’i, shinto, Wicca, illuminati, lodge, freemason, brotherhood of cross and star, Roman Catholic church, Celestial Church of Christ, Mormons, Rock, hip-hop, pop, R&B, Reggae, and rap music, Jehovah witness, white garment church, bohemian, skull and bones, banishment of Bible from schools, hotels, and others? Don’t you notice the lies, hypocrisy and ungodliness in their speeches? Oh, who is wise and holy among the servants of God, who the Lord will come and found faithful, watchful, blameless, why don’t you see these occultists and warn the sheep? Why overlook them; intimidated; silenced and not sound the alarm? They have destroyed Christianity, godliness and introduce aberrations, traditions, man-made laws and ungodly forms of worship in the world and Christendom. Satan and his occultists are loaded with fetish powers which is gotten from the fall of man; when he seduced Adam and Eve to disobey God and continued with the same strategies on their posterity. More so, by the activities of the seducing spirits and doctrines of the devils, Satan is able to control the minds of his servants and to covenant with him for security purposes and allegiance with cannot be broken except by God’s intervention. These children of Satan include all those that disobey God, Bible and Jesus Christ whether in the world or church. That’s why God says, “He that committeth sin is of the devil. for the devil sinneth from the beginning” 1 John 3:8. Therefore, are you are sinner in the church or world? Do you still commit sins? Nevertheless, don’t you see or hear the occultists that state, “I sold my soul to the devil?” How about those that call themselves Satanists, Luciferians, Rastafarians, philosophers, scientists, atheists, agnostics, communists, humanists, traditionalists, paganist, socialists, vegetarians, etc.? Don’t you see those with cosmetic/facial surgery: breast, buttock, lips and other body parts enhancements? How about those with tattoos, piercings, bleachers, effeminates, dreadlocks, nail- paints, artificial hairs and make ups in the church and world, the worst is that these people are preachers and teachers of the Bible? Besides, God exposes their secret places, hideout and covenant places for the church awareness. The devil also made an artificial cosmos with every deceivableness of sin to subtly usurp the victims’ creation rights, power, and force absolute loyalty. God angrily declares that the occultists, the Satan religionists inflame themselves with demons, possessed by so many demons that performs different operations through them. The devil and human agents meet: 1. under every green tree and every thick oak Isaiah 57:5, Ezekiel 6:13
2. in the valleys under clifts of rocks Isaiah 57:6 3. among smooth stones of the stream, i.e. bodies of waters: rivers, oceans, seas, ponds, lake, canal, etc. Isaiah 57:6 4. upon a lofty and high mountain, there they set their bed and went up to offer sacrifice to Satan, on top of high hills, etc. 5. Behind doors i.e. houses, church, schools, offices, clubs, etc. they put signs, symbols, stickers or emblems on posts. Isaiah 57: 8. 6. among and inside graves and graveyards Isaiah 65:3-4. 7. lodge in the monuments Isaiah 57:4. 8. in the gardens, groves and brick of altars Isaiah 65:3 9. astral projection to unreal or make-believe planets Beware of these abhorred human agents of the devil through whom the transformed Satan and demons have permeated the church and world as angel of light, workers of righteousness that allure souls to hell fire. You must be knowledgeable of these heartless and pretentious persons planted in the world and church to fulfill Satan’s diabolical, and hellish objectives. Know the people in your church, fellowship and pastors, prophets, evangelists, pope, bishops, Revs, brothers or sisters, and whoever that profess Christ. Always depend on Godhead and prayer for revelation of these tares, children of Satan planted everywhere for the coming of the Lord is at hand for sin cannot be raptured or enter into heaven.

“Then spake the Lord to Paul in the night by a vision, Be not afraid, but speak, and hold not thy peace: for I am with thee, and no man shall set on thee to harm thee: for I have much people in this city” Acts 18:9-10 Today, believers or children of God are faced with severe hatred, persecutions, afflictions, threats, discrimination, imprisonment, and injustice universally because they are the representative of God on earth, which necessitated these atrocious or abominable maltreatments to annihilate them by the transformed serpent, Satan, tares, devils and children. There is no part of the world these plots have not disseminated against these God’s heroes, horines and generals that are found everywhere in the world in fulfillment of God’s promises to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. The Lord says, “…And in thy Seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed because thou has obeyed MY voice” Genesis 22:16-18. Genesis 26:4 and Genesis 28:14. God fulfilled His promises to the patriarchs and after Israel’s establishment as a nation on the earthly Promised Land where they faced with enemies within and without them (Luke 2:34-35). The allegorical Seed of Abraham, the Seed of the woman, the Incarnated Word of God, the Emmanuel, Messiah, the Lord and Savior of mankind (Galatians 3:16-29). The Lord came into the World to save every human from sins, Satan and his bondages. HE laid down His life and died shamefully to liberate from slavery, degradation, and ungodliness in which mankind was held captive. The Lord says, “Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of His dear Son: In whom we have redemption through His blood, even the forgiveness of sins: who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature;” Colossians 1:13-15. This is the message and gospel that Satan, demons and children never want Christians to tell, share and publicize so that mankind will continue be enslaved by sins, lusts, and their devilish ideologies. Therefore, the devil after this “mysterious finished work of God on the cross” avowed to nullify at all cost: he has been using kings, monarchs, queens, presidents, sinners, world leaders and their laws to stop humans from returning to God, the Creator. Given to the fiery hatred, imprisonment, marginalization, death, torture, discrimination, dehumanization and others maltreatments await and against Christians; there is also constant pressure to deny the faith/Lord and join humanism, secularism, political correctness and the unified religion, the world or multitude, but we must preach and teach the Word boldly. More so, occultism, transformed satanic ministers, politics and and demoniacs infiltrated Christendom with false revelations, vision, signs and wonders (Miracles), utterances, knowledge, gifts, and others with the sledge of hammer of confusion, disunity, backsliding, division and coldness among Christians, still true believers must go forward and preach the gospel without spot. Men and brethren, warriors and representatives of the Lord, “Be not afraid, but speak, and hold not thy peace: for I am with thee, and no man shall set on thee to harm thee: for I have much people in this city” Acts 18:9-10. Rapture is imminent! Do not fail for the Lord depends on you for enlightenment, redemption and restoration of mankind back to HIM. You must not hold your peace; or stop preaching the unalloyed gospel of the cross to all and sundry to hear and as witness on the day of judgment regardless of oddities. The Lord has many that will repent through before His imminent coming, the sooner we do the mandate the earlier HE returns for the bride for HE has in this city called world such as should be saved. So, be not afraid of their terrors and threatening, but preach and teach the gospel, the eternal truth; refused to be silenced, intimidated by decapitation, death, rape, ignominious death, destruction of physical church buildings, or by lawsuit, imprisonment, or by accusations, lynching, stoning, etc. Oh, weary child of God, don’t give up; listen and you will hear the sound and see the signs of His coming. The King is coming that’s why all hell is loosed. Remember, physical death is not nothing, but a process for crossing over to heaven and to be with the Lord; therefore be not afraid, but preach and teach the Word, the gospel as God has commanded. Remember, Lord swallowed up death in victory; HE is the resurrection and life; if you die preaching the gospel of the cross, the demonstrated power of God unto salvation, you shall live again. Oh, “Be not afraid, but speak, and hold not thy peace: for I am with thee, and no man shall set on thee to harm thee: for I have much people in this city” The Lord saying, “Father forgive them for they know not what they do” Luke 23:34. All opponents of God, Christians and Christianity regardless of their social status are blind, dead and in bondage of sin and Satan, so if you stop preaching and teaching the Word of eternal life they will die and damned in hell forever. Be not afraid of their threats, ban of Christianity activities, and buildings, of death for the God is with you and no man can hurt or harm you. Their juju, incantations, charms, amulets, magics, witchcraft, enchantments and others cannot near you, if you obey the Lord. The Lord says, “And other save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garments spotted by the flesh” Jude 1:23. When you preach and teach about Jesus Christ in holiness, you save sinners and break the invisible pulleys or rope that pulls them forcefully into hell Satan’s abode. Therefore, be not afraid, the Lord went through the same humiliation and crucifixion on the cross publicly. How can sinners, haters of God and world leaders know the Truth, be saved and converted we are afraid to speak publicly in defense of Jesus Christ, the gospel? Does not faith to believe in God come by hearing, and how will they hear if we seal our mouths, become political correct, sold our birth and change our names to Esau? God forbid! We must preach and teach the gospel for whether we preach or forbear we must still die. Preach the Word in season and out of season. There is no other gospel or name for salvation except Jesus Christ as the Bible held, therefore why should be afraid to preach; teach, rebuke, exhort and admonish in all righteousness and holiness without no man shall see the Lord? In the Bible, “When they oppose themselves and blasphemed” Paul wanted to leave them to elsewhere, the Lord said, “Be not afraid, but speak, and hold not thy peace: for I am with thee, and no man shall set on thee to harm thee: for I have much people in this city” Acts 18″6, 9-10. Early believers went through same challenges, the world and her leaders ignored their cry of pain, sorrow and affliction; they rights were denied and branded “pestilence” and unfit for living (Hebrews 11:32-40. In the midst of oppositions and oddities, they obeyed the Lord even “When divers were hardened and believed not, but evil spake of that way before multitude, Paul did not quit, but continued “disputing daily” that Jesus Christ is the world’s Savior stating, “This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptation that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners” 1 Timothy.1:15. Can you imagine the billions of humans heading to Christless eternity, yet they are resolved to fight and exterminate Christians that are the reason for their existence that will show them the right way? Oh Lord, have mercy! Is this not why the Lord says, “For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness, but unto us which are saved it the power of God?” 1 Corinthians 1:18. Therefore, despite all odds; come what may; whether the world tumbles and incredibles occur, ” Be not afraid, but speak, and hold not thy peace: for I am with thee, and no man shall set on thee to harm thee: for I have much people in this city” Acts 18:9-10

“Where is the wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the disputer of this world? Hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world? For after the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it please God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe” 1 Corinthians 1:20-21. God is displeased with the devilish wisdom that humans surround themselves with that causes spiritual blindness and darkened understanding of His existence, greatness, and unspeakable mysteries embedded in the universe. Lack of God’s knowledge and power result to man’s inability to explore the hidden wisdom and riches of God as revealed in the universe from her inception. Instead of exploration of true wisdom and mysteries of God, humans were side tracked by the devil, and demons through bewitchment changed the true wisdom with his satanic wisdom due to human sinful nature. The consequences of Satan-inspired wisdom which is earthly, sensual and devilish (James 3:15) has become perpetual undoing of mankind. Billions of humans are destroyed rendered useless, devoid of God and it has continued to cause human’s downfall without their comprehension. Though the world and humans are draining down in the tunnel of mass destruction and eternal damnation, yet none realizes the awful state of humanity. With all human advancement in science, technology, astrology, arts and others, unfortunately they are still unable to understand or read the handwriting of doom written on the Pharaoh’s palace. What a severe blindness? Humans have gone to outer space, moon and made “gigantic” discoveries as their intelligence can accommodate, regrettably they are unaware of the true wisdom that provides answers, solutions and satisfactions to the soaring human needs: sins, earth travails and satanic activities. Given to humans’ short-sightedness to godliness, pursuit of vanity, imperceptibility and devilish wisdom, therefore, God lamentably asks, “Where is the wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the disputer of this world? Hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world? For after the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it please God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe” 1 Corinthians 1:20-21. How can humans have Great and Almighty God that can do all things, yet grope in darkness, swallow in oceason of sin, evil wickedness and foolishness? Does it show that humanity is wise and smart? God has repeatedly and continued to ask; “where is the wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the disputer of this world? These individuals can predict the weather, cast news with alteration of truth, speak les and deception without flinching publicly; invent artificial and laboratory humans, yet they fail to understand why one plus one equal one. So God God sadly reiterates, “Hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?” The wisdom of the wise, scribes and debaters of this world are divinely turned to foolishness, curse and disaster because it did show or direct humans to God. Humans and their wisdom amounts to vanity and vexation of the spirit for it originated from Satan, the spirit that controls sinners and all opponents of God. This earth, sensual and devilish wisdom has devastated divided, turned mankind inside out and upside down and against one another. As a professing Christian, what kind of wisdom do you have? Do you have both the worldly and heavenly wisdom? Your choice determines who you are really are. With advancement in wisdom, humans are unable to invent a unique thing that can universally end SIN, death, and satanic invasion of the human lives. Humans wisdom can perfectly create societal segregation, aberrations, marginalization, promote secularism, humanism, political correctness, etc. They also formulate theories, beliefs, concepts and philosophies contrary to God’s commandments and persuade for their acceptance universally as world modus operandi. In fact, their devilish wisdom completely deny and exclude God from all human affairs. Worstly, they slam Christians with barrage of lawsuits to ensure that Christians are silenced, intimidated and forced to follow their wisdom. To this ungodly actions the Lord says, “Surely the princes of Zoan (leaders of the people) are fools, the counsel of the wise counsellors of Pharaoh (Satan) is become brutish: how say ye unto Pharaoh, I am the son of wise, the son of ancient kings (rulers)? Where are they? Where are thy wise men? And let them tell thee now, and let them know what the Lord of hosts hath purposed upon Egypt (World)” Isaiah 19:11-12 God exposed these worldly wise men as human agents of Satan that are interested in pursuit of devilish wisdom and have contributed immensely to the ruination of mankind? The Lord rebuked these wise men to evoke godly reasoning of the past and present quest for wisdom which cannot help to know or even understand the plans and purposes of God for the world. Therefore HE asked, ” Where are the past emperors, kings, queens, rulers that conquered by destruction or crushing of lives during their reign, political office and era? Where are the fools that hated God; blasphemed and spoke profanations against and challenged God?” Have they not all died, yet God, His name and word still resound in the world despite all oddities? Therefore, the Lord affirms, “Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you seemeth to be wise in this world, let him become a fool, that he may be wise” Why should man becomes fool for him to have wisdom? Is this counsel not contrary to the world system and counsel? The Lord replied, “For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, HE taketh the wise in their own craftiness. The Lord knoweth the thoughts of the wise, that they are vain” 1 Corinthians 3:18-20. To God, there is no wise men, scribes or disputers of this world regardless of their assumed advancements for their wisdom is foolishness, vanity and craftiness. Can you imagine? worldly wisdom tantamount to nothingness because it cannot save from sin, deliver from satanic bondage or confer holiness and eternal life. Regrettably, worldly wise men traded their soul for acquirement of this vanity, foolishness and craftiness called wisdom, Oh God have mercy. Beware, let no man destroy or through the wisdom of the world destroy the body of Christ. The Lord warns, “beware, lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world and not after Christ Jesus” Colossians 2:8 Those that have brought worldly wisdom into Christendom without fear of God for the destruction of the body Christ the Lord warned, “But whoso sjall offend one of these little ones which believe in ME, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea and woe unto that man by who offences cometh!” Matthew 18:6-7.

GRACE CANNOT BE EARNED – NO DEED IS GOOD ENOUGH!

This is a message we need to spread throughout the world. There are too many people who believe that if they lead a good enough life, have a good enough heart, they will get to heaven in the end. THIS IS ONE OF THE LIES OF THE DEVIL! We need to remind the world that the only way to the Father is through Christ Jesus! God gave His only Son so we could live! He provided the only way for all mankind to return to His love, mercy and grace. We need to remind the world that the Word of God is exactly that – God’s Word. His instructions, commands and lessons are all contained in His Word. His Word cannot be taken in pieces. You cannot take part of it and ignore the rest. IT IS ALL OR NOTHING! CHRIST IS THE TRUE WAY, THE ONLY TRUTH, AND THE LIGHT TO THE WORLD – LIGHTING THE ONLY PATH TO THE FATHER!

GOD IS ALWAYS IN CONTROL!

He may allow bad things to happen to His children, but there is always a reason that fits into His perfect will. It may be we need to go through something to be prepared for something in the future. It may be something needs to happen to you in order to show your faith to someone else. It could simply be God demonstrating to Satan that we are truly His child just as He did with Job. We need to remember that Job was a truly righteous man who lost everything through no fault of his own. Even when his supposedly righteous friends and elders turned against him, he stood on his faith. He never wavered in His faith in God. He trusted his knowledge of God’s love and faithfulness to sustain him. He knew God was in control and that all things would be worked to his good in the end – in God’s time. There was nothing really special about Job as far as his humanity is concerned. He was just a man like you or me. He had been blessed by God in his life, but it was not perfect even before the trials given to him. Yet he stood on His faith and when everything was over and done with, he was rewarded for that faith by God for his steadfast belief in God. The long and short of it is this. If Job, an ordinary man, can stand before everything Satan threw at him, why should we do less? What excuse do we have when we are attacked by Satan? If our faith is in the Lord, we have nothing to fear. GOD IS IN CONTROL AND WILL WORK ALL THINGS TO OUR GOOD!

DO NOT LET ANYONE STEAL YOUR JOY!

You are a child of God and He will be with you always. No one on this earth can take your joy from you unless you let them! Give your burdens and hurts and pain to Him! THIS IS A COMMAND FROM GOD – GIVE YOUR BURDENS UNTO HIOM AND HE WILL TAKE THEM AND GIVE YOU JOY AND PEACE! He will guide and direct you. He will always be there to support you and hold you up. If you need words to say, He will supply them. He will supply your every need. It is up to you to accept His Will. WHEN YOU LET SOMEONE STEAL YOUR JOY, YOU ARE NOT RELYING ON GOD – GIVE ALL TO HIM AND HE WILL PROVIDE!

HE WOULD HAVE TOLD US!

This is the season we celebrate the birth of our Savior. My question is this, why don’t we celebrate it everyday? I have read a lot of items and posts lately dealing with whether or not Christ was actually born in what we call December. DOES IT REALLY MAKE A DIFFERENCE? My pastor had a very good response for some. He simply pointed out that he felt that if God had really wanted us to know an exact time, HE WOULD HAVE TOLD US! He tells us in His Word that Christ’s crucifixion was during the Passover. He wanted us to know, so He told us. So why didn’t He tell us the time of His birth? My answer is just as simple. IT SHOULDN’T MATTER BECAUSE WE SHOULD CELEBRATE IT EVERYDAY OF OUR EARTHLY LIFES! There should not be a day we do not celebrate the birth of our Savior. His birth made our salvation possible. His birth marked the beginning of the end for Satan’s power over us, which made us slaves to sin. His birth, no matter the time of year, made possible the relationship we all have with our Heavenly Father. So I ask again, does the time of year really matter? If we are praising Him as we should, we should be celebrating His birth everyday! We should be bringing HIM gifts everyday, our praise and worship. No, there would not be the exchanging of gifts with friends and family. Does that really have anything to do with His birth? THE WISE MEN BROUGHT HIM GIFTS, NOT EACH OTHER! That is a celebration of the season of this world, not God’s. IF IT WAS REALLY THAT IMPORTANT TO GOD, DON’T YOU THINK HE WOULD HAVE TOLD US? CELEBRATE CHRIST’S BIRTH EVERYDAY – PRAISE HIM AND WORSHIP HIM EVERYDAY OF YOUR LIFE!

CELEBRATE CHRIST’S BIRTH EVERYDAY – PRAISE HIM AND WORSHIP HIM EVERYDAY OF YOUR LIFE!

FORGIVE AS YOU ARE FORGIVEN – LOVE AS YOU ARE LOVED!

These are commands from our Father. He does not note any exceptions, no maybes, no conditions, JUST DO IT! THIS INCLUDES FORGIVING YOURSELF! Many times in our lives, we do things we later regret. After we have accepted Christ, the only time we will be reminded of those times is from the devil himself. God cannot remind you of them because He has forgotten them. TO HIM, THEY NEVER HAPPENED! He has forgiven you, so why can you not forgive yourself?
It is always difficult to forgive others, more so if they are family or close friends. I have discovered from personal experience, forgiving myself was harder than anytime I ever had, to forgive someone else. I just could not believe I had done some things, or hurt some of the people I hurt. Once I truly surrendered to Christ and God’s Will, I realized I had to forgive myself to fully surrender to Christ. As long I had those feelings of un-forgiveness, I was turning my back on Him because I was listening to the devil, not God! WHO ARE YOU LISTENING TO? YOUR ACT OF FORGIVENESS WILL TELL THE TALE!
