God or Wealth

Which is it? God or WealthGod or Wealth

Usually one is more important than the other. Wealth is the chief rival of our day to God. It is said that money is a good servant but a bad master. Personally we must master money or money masters you. Are we being choked by the wealth and riches of the world so that our faith cannot grow to maturity and bring a bountiful harvest? God or Wealth

“The seed sown among thorns is the one, who hears the word, but then worldly anxiety and the lure of riches choke the word and it bears no fruit.”                                                                          Matthew 13:1-23.

Then the cares and anxieties of the world and distractions of the age, and the pleasure and delight and false glamor and deceitfulness of riches, and the craving and passionate desire for other things creep in and choke and suffocate the Word, and it becomes fruitless.

God or Wealth

The enjoyments in themselves may be innocent, which worldly prosperity enables one to indulge. These “choke” or “smother” the word; drawing off so much of one’s attention, absorbing so much of one’s interest, and using up so much of one’s time, that only the dregs of these remain for spiritual things.”They bring no fruit to perfection” Luke 8:14: a possible promise of fruit—which never ripens. You may realize the truth too late: God expects and requires fruit. 

GENEROSITY

It’s easy to think that we’ve carved our own way, worked hard, proven ourselves, and been blessed by God as a result. There’s some truth to here, but these realities need not obscure the fact that we are all in the positions of influence that God has us as a result of the generosity of others.

We’ve all had help and we know it.

Generosity is not only primarily about money. We see a need around us and we seek to do something about it.

It often seems like this type of generosity is far more common for believers in the fourth-quarter of their lives. They know that their legacy hinges on the investment they make in others. But it’s often a rare trait for Christians in the prime of their lives.

THREE REASONS TO BE GENEROUS WITH GRACE (MONEY)

Grace giving God or Wealth
  1. Grace (money) is entirely about God and His love. We give grace (money) to show love. “Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another”.                                                          1 John 4:11
  2. We give grace (money) to prevent conflict. “See to it that no one fails to obtain the grace of God; that no root of bitterness springs up and causes trouble, and by it many become defiled.”                                                                                                                     Hebrews 12:15
  3. We give grace (money) because are called to serve one another. “As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace.”                             1 Peter 4:10God or Wealth

Are we saying this will be easy? Nope! It won’t. In fact, giving grace (money) is hard. Giving grace requires laying down self and giving priority to others. Giving grace necessitates that we let go of our expectations and focus instead on encouraging others.

We demand grace (money) be given according to our need and yet we resist offering that same grace to others.

We cannot tell what may happen to us in this strange medley of life. But we can decide what we do with our talents and money. That is the real test of living: taking your gifts and making it a thing of worth and beauty. SAY: THE GREATEST GIFT TO GOD IS MYSELF!

BEARING FRUIT

“The seed sown on rich soil is the one who hears the word and understands it, who indeed bears fruit and yields a hundred or sixty or thirty-fold.”                                                                          Matthew 13:23

The shock element of this parable is in the math. The few seeds that find their way to good soil produce a super-abundant harvest. Jesus delighted his audience by pronouncing boldly that this small amount of seed would produce a crop thirty, sixty, or even a hundredfold greater than what was sown! Agricultural historians estimate that this farming method never yielded more than ten to fifteen percent gain.God or Wealth                                                                                                                    1 Timothy 6:17

Unfortunately, old habits die hard. Over time we tend to hear what we want to hear and to see what we want to see. No matter how educated, talented, rich or cool you believe you are, how you treat people and money ultimately tells all. People should use their talents to make money but money should not take away people’s attention from God, your Creator.

YOUR PRAYER

Lord, open my eyes so that I can see again. Open my ears so that I can hear your voice. Lift my heart to you so that I can experience a grace that will produce in my life an abundance that I cannot fathom and that I will share. Let my life become good soil, ready to receive the seed and be “one who hears the word and understands it, who indeed bears fruit.”

Do Good Wealth or God

The few who do are the envy of the many who only watch.

God or Wealth Manure

Money is like manure: it’s not good unless it’s spread around.                                                                                                                               Francis BaconGod or Wealth

Christianity on a Table Napkin:Deliverance EVIL SPIRITS

If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.                                                                                                                                              Romans 10:9

The real Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the Living God. He was send by God to come to the earth in the body of a human being. That was so that He could suffer in the flesh, take all our sins upon Himself and die in our place. He rose from the dead and lives to pray for us daily.
He is the Saviour – The angel announced to Mary; …and you shall call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins. Matthew 1:21    It means He has the power to free us, save us and deliver us from sin. He is merciful and has the power to forgive. He brings good news to the poor, heals the heartbroken, announce freedom to all captives, pardons all prisoners. He comforts mourners. He has healing in His wings.
If you are not yet received Jesus as your Saviour… SAY: Lord Jesus, You are the Christ, the Son of the Living God. Please hear me today and help me! I want to receive you as my Lord and Saviour. Be Lord of my life!  Lord Jesus, I believe that You died for me and that God raised You from the dead. Forgive me all my sins and take all my sins away. Come into my heart and be my Savior and Lord, and fill me with Your Holy Spirit. Amen

God the Father will wipe every tear from our eyes, and there shall be no more death or mourning, crying out or pain. We will be like Him, for we will see Him as He is The Holy Spirit will have made all things new. Eternal joy will have begun.  “For the Mighty One has done great things for me— holy is His name.”                                       Luke 1: 49

Are we not like Barabbas justly condemned for murder, but saved by the innocent Jesus on the cross? Are we not like the adulterous woman, deserving of death by stoning, to whom Jesus says, “I do not condemn you”?  And Jesus saved them both. In fact, Jesus came to earth specifically to look for and save those who were lost.

“Come now, let us settle the matter,” says the LORD.

HEALING OBSTACLES

HEALING PROBLEMS

So why do some believers stay sick even after healing ministry. These healing obstacles can be easily overcome. Let us begin at the beginning.

Peter’s words of healing quoted Isaiah, “by His stripes, you have been healed.” 1 Peter 2:24  We know that Peter summed up the whole life of Jesus by saying that He went about healing all who were oppressed by the devilActs 10:38 The Scripture also says that Christ came “to destroy the works of the devil’ 1 John 3:8, not to destroy the works of His Father.Healing Faith

The Scripture repeats that there is no partiality with God”. Romans 2:11; Ephesians 6:9 Christ never talked about cancer being good for one person while He healed another. The Scripture says that Christ healed all who came to Him – no exceptions.

Isn’t it so freeing to know that we don’t need to plead with God or cajole or convince Him to heal us? On the contrary, since we are the righteousness of God in Christ 2 Corinthians 5:21, we are healed on the basis of His mighty mercy and justice.Healing Obstacles

In fact, in His parting words, Jesus stated clearly that this authority over disease and demons is a tell-tale sign of all those who follow Him.                                                                                                        Mark 16:17-18 

There are four reasons, and they are similar to the reasons why some who hear the

Gospel of salvation do not receive it or cannot hold onto it:

  1. Unbelief and the Failure to Persevere– An individual can experience a glorious deliverance at the hands of the Lord and twenty-four hours later seriously wonder whether he imagined it all. Christ was quite clear: “it shall be done [for us] according to our faith”                                                                                         Matthew 9:29
  2. The Lie of Unworthiness; The Absence of Expectation of GodWe just cannot bring ourselves to believe, given what we know we have done in the past, that a holy God could love us enough to forgive us everything and heal us simply as a gift! We think that we do not deserve to be healed, and so, unfortunately, we reject His healing and are not healed. . This thinking can cause us to believe that our sin is too great for Christ’s mercy.
  1. Pride; Lack of Desperation– Our pride may ultimately lead us to take the position that we will only receive healing on “our terms, where we will remain the lord of our life.

We are not desperate enough, and so we just don’t want to abandon ourselves wholly over to Him.

  1. A Refusal to Receive– We cannot adequately conceive of real We operate and relate solely on the basis of wages – what we think is justly due us for our conduct.

The four reasons are often inter-related and the result is the same in each case – we are

either not healed or we cannot apprehend or hold onto our healing. We must take the focus off ourselves and our unworthiness, and fixate upon Christ and His character and loving kindness – that’s whom we are to “set our minds” on. And then abandon all to Him, and henceforth let go of any remaining vestige of our desire to do it our own way, while giving thanks and praise to our Father, “a Great King over all the earth“.                                                                           Psalm 47:1

So here is the homework that builds faith: a minimum of once a day and preferably whenever you think about it, say this prayer until all the healing has taken place: Lord , I love You.; Lord, I trust You.; Lord, I praise You and I thank You for Your healing.

Precis for Healing 101EYE OF THE BEHOLDER HEALING

  • In the eyes of a disciple of healing who sees immediate healing through the Name of Jesus Christ, that disciple knows that God’s healing touch is all that is necessary for healing.
  • In the eyes of a logical thinking person who has seen and heard a doctor, that person thinks that a doctor’s advice is paramount. One wants to believe, as the Centurion did, that God will grant healing, but one wonders. 

Who to believe? It comes down to the knowledge from the eye of the beholder.

To illustrate, it is common that immediate healing takes place in the “eyes of the healer”. Back problems are immediately healed and are self-evident. What about cancer? That is healed as well but the healing is not so self-evident immediately. Tests have to be made in the usual manner.

The difference in both situations depends on experience. The logical thinking person has never seen immediate healing. Naturally there will be a great deal of skepticism. That is overcome by prayer.

Faith is the medicine that is healing the sickness of our time. God has heard the healing prayers and seen your tears and you are healed in heaven. Know that you will already be restored to full health.Faith health healing

What is missing is your FAITH: hope and courage that you need every day until all the healing has taken place. Calm your fears: God will surround you with His peace as He blesses you with His healing touch.

DELIVERANCE FOR MUSLIMS

WHAT IS DELIVERANCE?

Deliverance is defined as “a rescue from bondage or danger.” Deliverance is often sought from evil spirits or the spirit of lust, jealousy, etc. We are told to “Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith.”                                                                                                                                              1 Peter 5:8,9

All aspects of deliverance are available only through the person and work of Jesus Christ:” When the seventy-two disciples returned, they joyfully reported to him, ‘Lord, even the demons obey us when we use your name!’”                                                                            Luke 10:17

HOW DO YOU KNOW YOU NEED DELIVERANCE?

To determine if you are in need of deliverance, ask yourself the following questions:

  1. Are you continually argumentative or contrary–usually on the verge of anger?
  2.  Are you violating, neglecting or causing pain in a relationship?
  3.  Are you practicing sin and can’t seem to stop?
  4. Do you see a pattern of issues in your family, whether disease, poverty, anger, divorce, sexual perversion or other issues?
  5. You are sick all the time and the doctors find nothing wrong. You could be dealing with a spirit of infirmity?
  6. Are you having “spiritual” encounters, including recurring  dreams/nightmares that you leave you fearful?
  7. Do you sometimes sense that the problem isn’t you, but rather something in you?
  8. Are you attracted  to the occult. , e.g. Ouija Boards, Seance, Fortune Telling, Horoscopes, Hypnosis etc, or Witchcraft?
  9. Have you experienced traumatic events that have impacted your life negatively?
  10. Do you keep hitting the same wall.

WHY DELIVERANCE FOR MUSLIMS?

There is no known true and effective deliverance available for Muslims from the Koran.  Many Muslims have serious emotional issues that upset one’s life. These are like little monkeys on one’s back that are always there and never go away. This serious problem can be solved!Muslim Deliverance

Prayer of Deliverance

The short form is “In the name of Our Lord Jesus, I bind and deliver the evil spirits of … to go to the abyss.” This is said for each individual evil spirit.

The following prayer can be done together: the person to be delivered must also pray during  OUR PART“:                                                                         “Come, Holy Spirit, Come” silently.

Deliverance EVIL SPIRITS PRAYER

The void that that takes place brings a complete sense of peace, and you will now be free. If you don’t believe this, try it and see for yourself. You will definitely know in three minutes that a physical change has taken place.

Your holy Christian friend, who will be saying the above prayer with you as you both pray, will command these spirits to go back where they came from (the abyss).

The person delivered must now thank God for the spiritual healing every day until the total deliverance has taken place and to thank Him whenever he or she thinks about it. One must soak oneself in God’s love by reading the Bible: the short gospel of Luke for beginners and later the gospels of John.

The delivered person does not want to ever go back to the ever pervading influence of evil spirits. It is very important to connect with a Bible-oriented church or to begin to read the Bible.

A long distance prayer of deliverance can be used to exhort evil influences on members of your family by name in the same manner with you as the intercessor and with your holy Christian. They should be made aware of your prayer as a gentle mention that there is prayer for them so they can become more sensitized to God’s Love. They will notice the difference!

My Yoke is Easy

Your life doesn’t have to feel oppressive: remember, “My yoke is easy and My burden is light.” When we surrender to the path of love which He has laid out for us, our lives become infinitely lighter, easier, more joyful, for we are moving with the divine purpose.yoke burden easy

Jesus says, “Come to Me, all you who labor and are burdened, and I will give you rest.” He is identifying every person who feels put upon by the world: economic worries, physical suffering, deep injustice, the death of a husband or wife, or the fear of your own death. You surely know what He’s referring to—we all do.yoke burden easy

So powerful are the assistances He gives us, so suitable the encouragements, and so strong the consolations to be found in the way of duty, that we may truly say, it is a yoke of pleasantness. yoke burden easy

Christ invites all to come to him for rest to their souls. He alone gives this invitation; men come to Him, when, feeling their guilt and misery, and believing His love and power to help, they seek Him in fervent prayer. yoke burden easy

He accepts the willing servant, however imperfect the services. 

Trading the Yoke

Whether that yoke is some sin or some self-assumed activity, we must be delivered in our hearts from a wrong obligation. We need to understand that He bore that, and the guilt associated with it, on the cross. The old yoke has to go; He can remove it from us. He can remove a service based upon the wrong motivation.

Then the raw wounds must be healed. That can take some time. Many people are understandably reticent to even obey God after having borne a bad yoke. But in Christ, healing does come as we accept responsibility for the previous error. We cannot blame God or others if we have accepted someone else’s manipulation or control. Accepting personal responsibility is a big first step to healing.

After one has dealt with past “burnout,” sin, or frustration, they are ready for a new understanding of service. Jesus said, “Learn of Me.” This is the key to a better yoke. “I am gentle and humble.” His yoke is not coerced; it is offered. It comes with peace, and joy, and suits our capability. It was made just for us.

This is a new kind of labor – a labor in rest. By coming to Him, we have left frustration and anxiety behind. We have cast our cares upon Him, and we have trusted Him. We have entered into His rest – the rest of trusting His leadership (see Hebrews 4): “They shall never enter my rest.” Hebrews 4:5

SPIRITUAL WARFARE

The Mouse’s Search for the Cat

The unproved assumption of this very common mountain analogy is that the roads go up, not down; that man makes the roads, not God; that religion is man’s search for God, not God’s search for man.  C. S. Lewis says this sounds like “the mouse’s search for the cat”.Islam Christianity

Christianity is not a system of man’s search for God but a story of God’s search for man.  True religion is not like a cloud of incense wafting up from special spirits into the nostrils of a waiting God, but like a Father’s hand thrust downward to rescue the fallen. Islam Christianity

Krishna is the so called God, or “Supreme Personality Universe” Followers go into the prayer room, bowing down to false idols, as there are many idols on a platform.  The view of God is basically pantheistic, meaning that they believe God is all and in all. For Hare Krishnas, God is everything and everything is God. Hare Krishna

They will always believe themselves above all other, on a special pedestal thinking they are the only ones destined for Godhead and everyone else are doomed.

The “monotheism” of Hare Krishna is a little muddled, however, as Sri Krishna has an “eternal consort” named Srimati Radharani; together, Krishna and Radharani comprise the “Divine Couple.”

The belief in reincarnation is explained as one’s works, good and bad, are measured and judged after death. If one’s deeds are good, he continues to be reincarnated into higher life forms; if his deeds are bad, he will become a lower life form. One can cease the cycles of rebirth and realize his oneness with Krishna.

The goal of the Hare Krishna is to reach “Krishna consciousness,” a kind of enlightenment, so that man is ultimately identical to God. This is an old lie dating back to the Garden of Eden: “You will be as God” (Genesis 3:5).

They believe that by spiritual austerity, by chanting, by rising early, and purifying yourself, that gradually you can evolve to a platform where you are completely free from material desire. “I don’t believe that anybody’s come to that platform,” observed one follower. In fact, you have feelings of guilt and remorse that you can’t always be on this platform, and psychologically you start to berate yourself.

They get you to the point where they don’t have any self-worth anymore. The only thing that is worth is serving Krishna (god): being a robot for God.

Cult Phenomenon

The cult phenomenon always come all wrapped in a nice looking ‘package’ and sweetened with one form of bait or another only to sap one’s essence as well as their pocketbook. The purpose of all these cults  is to defuse and distract. For those living in the temple, it is a true cult. (If you do not live in the Temple, you are considered a Householder and can live your life as you see fit, which is a vast difference.)

Here is a summary of the main criticism of Hare Krishna (HK) or ISKCON:

1/. Disengaged

 Hare Krishna or ISKCON followers become disengaged with social issues. This is unhealthy. One must engage in society and interact with all levels of society to help serve others who are suffering in our world.

2/. Isolation

Sooner or later they will encourage members/devotees to disassociate with ‘outsiders’. This includes members of your own family. Members are  completely wrapped up in HK, in every spare moment; all under the guise of ‘Good Association’. This is NOT healthy and this should ring alarm bells.

Here is a typical lesson: “Don’t try to love people individually; it’s like trying to water the leaves on a tree. If you want to water the leaves of a tree you water the root. You don’t water each individual leaf. Instead, love Krishna. He’s the root. When you love Krishna, automatically you will love everybody.” You see how it all logically fits together, and how this can be real deceptive?

3/. Sleep deprivation

Sleep and sufficient amounts of it is healthy! Sleep deprivation is a classic mind control technique.  They are allowed only 6 hours of sleep a night.  They kept you weak and overworked, then they created a semi-hypnotic state with the song and dancing and then the chanting.  The argument that one hour sleep taken at different times is equivalent to two hours is not scientifically proven at all.

4/. Insulated information

Organizers telling you Do not listen to any other information other than what we are telling you and only absorb our material.” This should ring alarm bells.

5/. Austerity & Charity

They say in their writing that 50% of devotee’s wages should go to them. Who can afford that level of tithing. Nothing is allowed to get funded to a high position from grass roots level; unless it has been first instigated by organizers.  In the end the Hare Krishna cult is actually a brainwashing, money making machine for a few who profit from creating a prophet. The hidden agenda is to pour in world resources and money for India and to prosper its “gurus”.

6/. Positioning

They tend to position themselves in inner city locations, where there are lots of young influential people and/or drug and alcoholism dependent people. These people need a way to escape materialistic society, or escape religion.

7/. Hooks

The Hare Krishnas come with a convenient solution to this materialistic mess with lots of smiles, yummy grub and with a bit of music and dancing thrown in: come and party with the HKs!

Not to mention their hypnotic mantra, which gives you a nice ‘loved up’ feeling to act as pain killer against modern day living all under the guise of transcendental spirituality?

8/. Fishing

They target students and addicts, anyone needing someone to lean on; they attract the most lost, confused, and needy people. Many of these people could not function in the real world and were attracted to this group as a way to hide from reality. They latch on to people who show a tad of enthusiasm. They tempt you with ‘free’ books to mind control you.

For sure they are de-stressed; but they are completely pacified. Just like in Huxley’s “Brave New World” scenario. Happy pacified servants of the system along with their finances!

They also attract people who like to feed off others and they are attracted to large groups of people to feed from.

Historically

In the late sixties during the hippie days, it was like a love community; the idea was just to go out on the street and just to sing and dance and chant and to distribute the literature, ask for donations, give out food, love-everyone kind of thing, and family type of atmosphere.

That changed very drastically. The community gets this absolute order from the guru, which is as good as having an order from God, to go out and sell the books in order to raise money. They worked on the principal that the end justifies the means, which opens up a whole host of questionable money making techniques.

Then, in 1977, Swami Bhaktivedanta dies and eleven of his most high-ranking disciples take over. They want all the people in their zones to be people who accept them as pure and perfect gurus. Opps! We now observe a lot of in-house bickering and jealousy.

Reincarnation

You’ve died! Now what?

What happens to your life after death?The belief in reincarnation is explained as one’s works: if one’s deeds are good, one continues to be reincarnated into higher life forms; if his deeds are bad, one will become a lower life form. One can cease the cycles of rebirth and realize his oneness with Krishna, the godhead.

GATE TO HEAVEN

GATE TO HEAVEN Heaven’s Gate   gate to heaven

Let me ask you a question: when you die, where will your soul go? Heaven? Hell? Nowhere? Not sure? I know where my soul will go when I die. Wouldn’t you like to be absolutely 100% sure where yours will go? If you could get into the gate to heaven when you die, wouldn’t you do whatever it takes to be sure that that is where your soul is going?

  1. Have you sinned? Don’t think so? Ever told a lie, even a little white lie? Ever stolen something, even just a penny? Have you ever known it was right to do something, and then not done it?

“For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.” Romans 3:23 (You may be a good person, but even sinning just once (which we all have) we still fall short of the Glory of God, because God is without sin).

GATE TO HEAVEN

    2. We still have hope: Now, we know that God isn’t going to let sin into heaven… and now that we’ve established that every single person on earth has sinned, this isn’t looking so good for you and me to get into heaven is it? But luckily for us, there’s good news.

“For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” Romans 6:23

GATE TO HEAVEN

     3. You might be saying to yourself, “I don’t know how to accept Jesus as my savior or how to confess my sins.” Have no fear. If you are ready today to accept Jesus Christ as your savior, then pray with me by following the prayer below:

“Jesus, I know that I’m a sinner and that I need your help to save my soul. I know that you are the Son of God, and I want to thank you for dying on the cross for me so that I don’t have to pay for my sins, and so that I can have eternal life through you. Please come into my heart Lord and save me. Please forgive me for my sins and help me to repent and be a better person for you. I love you Lord and thank you for your sacrifice. In your name Lord, amen.”

GATE TO HEAVEN

    4.  There is no guilt and no reason to feel guilty. The Bible says we are sinners by nature. God does not expect us to feel guilty. What he does want us to feel is love for Him. He wants us to be with us in heaven, which is why we must accept his Son.

    5.  Now why would God feel it is necessary to be saved? What is there to be saved from? Hell. Where is the opposite of hell after you die? Heaven. You are being saved from Hell.

    6.  After we are saved, there is a change that takes place within us… we should want to do things to please God, not disappoint him. Now that’s not to say that God expects you to lead a perfect life… he doesn’t. But when you are saved, there is a spiritual “rebirth” if you will.

GATE TO HEAVEN

Do you know what signs Jesus will be looking for to see if He recognizes you as one of His own? What are you doing today to prepare for that crucial moment when time has run out?

GATE TO HEAVEN

But we come from God and belong to God…” 1 John 4:4

‘”In my Father’s house are many mansions.” John 14:2-3 

When you stand at the gate of heaven and God says, “Why should I let you in?” What answer will you give?

“I lived a good life.” “I gave money to good causes.”    “We’re happy for you, but you weren’t good enough.”

You will know the answer before you get there and you can know for sure that heaven’s gate will open for you. How?Gate to heaven

Very simple. 

“If you say with your mouth that Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved from the punishment of sin.” Romans 10:9

Christianity on a Table Napkin:Jesus God

If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.                                                                                                                                              Romans 10:9

The real Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the Living God. He was send by God to come to the earth in the body of a human being. That was so that He could suffer in the flesh, take all our sins upon Himself and die in our place. He rose from the dead and lives to pray for us daily.
He is the Saviour – The angel announced to Mary; …and you shall call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins. Matthew 1:21    It means He has the power to free us, save us and deliver us from sin. He is merciful and has the power to forgive. He brings good news to the poor, heals the heartbroken, announce freedom to all captives, pardons all prisoners. He comforts mourners. He has healing in His wings.
If you are not yet received Jesus as your Saviour… SAY: Lord Jesus, You are the Christ, the Son of the Living God. Please hear me today and help me! I want to receive you as my Lord and Saviour. Be Lord of my life!  Lord Jesus, I believe that You died for me and that God raised You from the dead. Forgive me all my sins and take all my sins away. Come into my heart and be my Savior and Lord, and fill me with Your Holy Spirit. Amen

God the Father will wipe every tear from our eyes, and there shall be no more death or mourning, crying out or pain. We will be like Him, for we will see Him as He is The Holy Spirit will have made all things new. Eternal joy will have begun.  “For the Mighty One has done great things for me— holy is His name.”                                       Luke 1: 49

Are we not like Barabbas justly condemned for murder, but saved by the innocent Jesus on the cross? Are we not like the adulterous woman, deserving of death by stoning, to whom Jesus says, “I do not condemn you”?  And Jesus saved them both. In fact, Jesus came to earth specifically to look for and save those who were lost.

“Come now, let us settle the matter,” says the LORD.

“Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool.    Isaiah 1:18

You may need some counseling with a pastor, priest or competent Christian worker, who will introduce you to this Short Course on Who is Jesus?

Is the BIBLE true?

Is Everything in the Bible True?     

 We accept the Bible as the inspired true Word of God. The writers were inspired, moved by the Holy Spirit:  “No part of the Holy Writings came long ago because of what man wanted to write. But holy men who belonged to God spoke what the Holy Spirit told them.” 2 Peter 1:21. The writings are inspired, as if breathed or spoken by God.

Bible is true

The Bible is a guide to salvation through faith in Christ, and sufficient for doctrine, correction, moral and ethical instruction “All scripture is inspired by God and is useful for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, so that everyone who belongs to God may be proficient, equipped for every good work.” 2 Timothy 3:16.

Bible is true

 Inspiration is essentially incompatible with error. It is impossible that God himself, the supreme Truth, can utter that which is not true. Bible is true

The Bible is free from error only in matters of faith and morals and not in matters of history and science. Only those things needed for our salvation (i.e., faith and morals) and not history and science, are free from error. For example, although the first eleven chapters of Genesis are history in a true sense, the narratives contained within “relate in simple and figurative language, adapted to the understanding of mankind at a lower stage of development. Underlying Genesis are fundamental truths essential to divine scheme of salvation.

God allowed the divine message to be given in the phraseology of the human authors. Most alleged discrepancies in the Bible are easily resolved. “In order to discover the sacred author’s intention,” the Catholic Catechism states “the reader must take into account the conditions of their times and culture, the literal genres in use at that time, and the modes of feeling, speaking, and narrating then current”.

Let’s talk about prophecy. Accurate prophecies in the Bible support its validity.Bible is true

Bible is true

Ironically, historians find the Bible to be an accurate record of many ancient events, more reliable than other ancient writings. 

Bible is true

  “I have to believe that Jesus was (and is) God. And it seems plain as a matter of history that He taught His followers that the new life was communicated in this way. In other words, I believe it on His authority. Ninety-nine percent of the things you believe are believed on authority… The ordinary person believes in the solar system, atoms, and the circulation of the blood on authority–because the scientists say so. Every historical statement is believed on authority. None of us has seen the Norman Conquest or the defeat of the Spanish Armada. But we believe them simply because people who did see them have left writings that tell us about them.”                                                       C.S. Lewis  A Grief Observed

What’s Your Authority?

A study of early Christian history shows that there was a considerable disagreement among Christians until the issue of the canon was finally settled; the early Christians agreed on the 27 books. Protestants accept this testimony as trustworthy, or else the Protestant Bible would not have those 27 books.  They have implicit trust that the Catholic Church made the right decision in determining the canon. 

The fact is that the Holy Spirit guided the Catholic Church over time to recognize and determine the canon of the New and Old Testaments. This happened historically in the year 382 at the synod of Rome, under Pope Damasus I. This decision was ratified again at the councils of Hippo (393) and Carthage (397 and 419). You, my friend, accept exactly the same books of the New Testament that Pope Damasus decreed were canonical, and no others. 

Protestant doctrines will almost always be drawn from interpretations of the sacred text rather than the words themselves. Why are there so many conflicting understandings among Evangelicals and Fundamentalists even on central doctrines that pertain to salvation? Everyone claims to be ‘Bible-only Christians,’ but which group is right and which has the authority?

By “authority,” we don’t mean one’s personal or academic credentials. We mean the authority to claim one can rightly interpret the Bible, which we received from the Catholic Church that is our sole rule of faith: who’s to do the interpreting?

PEOPLE OF THE LIE

 People of the Lie need DELIVERANCE

People of the Lie

  1. Scott Peck, a psychologist and author of the famous book, The Road Less Traveled, had identified a personality disorder, which encompass an evil streak. He spent years with several clients, who did not fit with known psychological profiles. He later finally discovered they were obsessed by evil spirits, of which he knew very little. He finally referred to these clients as People of the Lie  from the title of his book.

This disorder was distinguished by:

  • Consistent destructive, scapegoating behaviour, which often can be quite subtle. (Scapegoating is a hostile social – psychological discrediting routine by which people move blame and responsibility away from themselves and towards a target person or group.)
  • Excessive and often covert intolerance to criticism
  • Pronounced concern with a public image and self-image of respectability. This contributes to a stable life-style but also to denial of hateful or vengeful motives.
  • Intellectual deviousness, with a mild schizophrenic-like disturbance at times of stress.

He later discovered that these evil spirits would repeatedly mislead the patient to believe that any exorcism, which was performed, had been a failure, when in fact it had been a success.People of the Lie

This underlines the importance of a follow up: praising and thanking God daily for the healing, which is reinforced by the reading of the Words of Jesus in the Gospel of John morning and night.

DELIVERANCE AND EXORCISM 

Exorcism is exercised in case of possession, while deliverance deals with the influences that are not full possession. There are very few cases of possession as compared to ever pervading influence of different kinds of evil spirits affecting many people.

deliverance

THE DELIVERANCE

“The nations you will dispossess listen to those who practice sorcery or divination. But as for you, the Lord your God has not permitted you to do so. The Lord your God will raise up for you a prophet like me from among you, from your fellow Israelites. You must listen to him.”                                                                                             Deuteronomy 18:9-15

That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth”                                                    Philippians 2:10  The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me                                                                                                                                                        Luke 4:18  “Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.”                                                                                                      James 4:7

These evil spirits are legalistic and they must be delivered in the Name of Jesus Christ by their function, otherwise the specific spirit would simply say “they are not talking to me” and they will stay. 

  WHO HAS THE AUTHORITY TO DELIVER EVIL INFLUENCES        A faithful Christian who is sinless: otherwise the evil spirits will just laugh at one’s sins.

The person being delivered does not have to be Christian. In fact, if you are a die-hard Muslim, Buddhist, Hindu, Atheist or any other religion you are in for a big surprise. You will only know by trying it: you have every thing to gain and nothing to lose.

Jesus is God.

 I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you.                                                                                                                                       Luke 10:19   “The one who does what is sinful is of the devil … The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the devil’s work.”           1 John 3:8        In the Name of Jesus Christ, you can take authority over all evil influences and break these influences over your life.  This is accomplished together with one other Christian who is of God or is very close to God.

HOW DO YOU KNOW A DELIVERANCE HAS TAKEN PLACE?There is a definite sense of peace, which envelopes over the one being delivered.  You definitely know something has happened.             

Then comes Deliverance!!!deliverance evil spirits

You may be wrapped up in a prickly blanket of sadness, you may be depressed, stressed or anxious, but it isn’t your fault.

 You can help yourself more than anyone.  The evil influence on you can be defeated through Jesus, the Source of strength. “Every knee will bend before Me”  Romans 14:11    That includes all evil spirits influencing you.

To my friends who are Muslim, Buddhist, Hindu, Atheist, Taoist, Mormon or Jehovah Witness:

To our knowledge, there is no one in your religious belief that can bind and deliver demonic spirits. There is a reason for this: demonic attacks are warded off in Jesus’ Name. It requires a bible oriented Christian to do the deliverance. You still can be delivered from your attacks, but it needs that all important Christian to command all evil spirits to go to Jesus Christ who will dispose of them according to His Will and to never return .

Muslim, Buddhist, Hindu, Atheist, Taoist, Mormon and Jehovah Witness: DELIVERANCE
Muslim, Buddhist, Hindu, Atheist, Taoist, Mormon and Jehovah Witness: DELIVERANCE

The person praying for deliverance must be free of sin otherwise the devil will just laugh.

SPIRITUAL WARFARE

DELIVERANCE

HEALING and DELIVERANCE

Prayer of Deliverance

The short form is “In the name of Our Lord Jesus, I bind and deliver the evil spirits of … to go to the abyss.” This is said for each individual evil spirit.

The following prayer can be done together: the person to be delivered must also pray during  “OUR PART“:                                                      “Come, Holy Spirit, Come” or “Come, Lord Jesus, Come” silently.

Your Christian friend will command these spirits to go back where they came from (the abyss) to be soon replaced with the Love and Blessing of the Lord: Free in Jesus

Deliverance EVIL SPIRITS PRAYER

The void that that takes place brings a complete sense of peace, and you will now be free in Jesus. 

(In the Name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, I command all evil spirits influencing you now, as you read this, to be quiet and not to give you any evil thoughts. This I command in the Name of Jesus.)

If you don’t believe this, try it and see for yourself. You will definitely know in three minutes that a physical change has taken place. 

 

The person delivered must now thank God for the spiritual healing every day until the total deliverance has taken place and to thank Him whenever he or she thinks about it. One must soak oneself in God’s love by reading the Bible: the short gospel of Luke for beginners and later the gospels of John. JESUS IS GOD Deliverance EVIL SPIRITS

The delivered person does not want to ever go back to the ever pervading influence  of evil spirits. It is very important to connect with a Bible-oriented church.

This same prayer of deliverance can be used to exhort evil influences on members of your family by name in the same manner with you as the intercessor and with your prayerful Christian. They should be made aware of your prayer as a gentle mention that you have prayed for them so they can become more sensitized to God’s Love.

This prayer of deliverance can be printed, quartered and kept in your wallet.

He is the Saviour – The angel announced to Mary; …and you shall call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins. Matthew 1:21    It means He has the power to free us, save us and deliver us from sin. He is merciful and has the power to forgive. He brings good news to the poor, heals the heartbroken, announce freedom to all captives, pardons all prisoners. He comforts mourners. He has healing in His wings.
If you are not yet received Jesus as your Saviour… SAY: Lord Jesus, You are the Christ, the Son of the Living God. Please hear me today and help me! I want to receive you as my Lord and Saviour. Be Lord of my life!  Lord Jesus, I believe that You died for me and that God raised You from the dead. Forgive me all my sins and take all my sins away. Come into my heart and be my Savior and Lord, and fill me with Your Holy Spirit. Amen

God the Father will wipe every tear from our eyes, and there shall be no more death or mourning, crying out or pain. We will be like Him, for we will see Him as He is The Holy Spirit will have made all things new. Eternal joy will have begun.  “For the Mighty One has done great things for me— holy is His name.”                                       Luke 1: 49

Are we not like Barabbas justly condemned for murder, but saved by the innocent Jesus on the cross? Are we not like the adulterous woman, deserving of death by stoning, to whom Jesus says, “I do not condemn you”?  And Jesus saved them both. In fact, Jesus came to earth specifically to look for and save those who were lost.

“Come now, let us settle the matter,” says the LORD.

“Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool.    Isaiah 1:18

Religion and Rise of Western Culture

The Rise of Western Culture

What was the real cause of the rise of Western Culture itself? How did it come about that a small group of Christians acquire the power to transform the world religion in such a short space of time? Christianity developed from 72 disciples. Was it supernatural evangelism? The Book of Acts demonstrates that physical healing, miracles, and gifts of the Holy Spirit were regular occurrences as the early Christians engaged in evangelism.

By the fourth century Christianity had become the official religion of the Roman Empire and inspired the new type of Byzantine culture, which had its center in the new Rome founded by the first Christian Emperor at Constantinople.

Let’s look at Christianity after the collapse of the Roman Empire. There were terrible economic, social, and political conditions that befell Europeans from 500-750 A.D. Yet, the Church tenaciously held on to what was of left of Western Civilization. Both Irish Celtic monks and the Benedictine monks preserved and spread their learning via their missionary zeal. It was the Benedictines, started by St. Benedict (480-544), who, upon meeting their Irish Celtic counterparts taught the Irish practicality and gave Irish monasticism a more sensible and less rigorous rule in a self-contained society (The Benedictine Rule). One of their own was selected Pope-Pope Gregory I 590-604) who is credited for not only learning and leadership, but the beginning of classical music with the Gregorian chant.

The greatest service of the Irish monks was the new movement of missionary expansion throughout Europe in the seventh and eighth century. This was a time during the victorious tide of Muslim invasions, which was sweeping over Western Mediterranean and North Africa. Finally, Charles Martel checked the Muslim advance at Poitiers in 732 AD. There were two figures who stand out as supreme—the priest, to teach and offer sacrifice and the king to rule and judge. This was also a time of wholesale exploitation and expropriation of bishoprics and monasteries to provide benefits to Martel’s warriors. Missionaries like St. Boniface admitted that they could not have been effective without the support of Martel.

Christianity was able to maintain its power by the awe inspired by its supernatural prestige: an arc of refuge against the violence of the barbarians in the world of war. Christianity became a strong unifying cultural force which provided the roots for present day European civilization as we know it: a direct bearing on the fate of our modern society.

There was an intimate relationship between religious faith and its social achievement. Christianity transformed Europe from a barbarian hinterland into a center of world culture and was responsible for the rise of city-states, the creation of new literature and philosophy, as well as new social, cultural and religious institutions: the order of chivalry, the religious orders and the universities.

The conversion of Clovis (480-520) of the Northern Barbarians was historically important when one considers that Clovis’ empire (basically modern France) became open to the Benedictines and the spread of knowledge and learning. The rise of the Franks under Charles Martel (717-742), Pepin (741-768), and especially Charlemagne (768-814) was important for the spread and renewal of the Church. Charlemagne’s palace school at Aachen was a center for learned men and drew students and clergy where literacy and texts were developed that enhanced and preserved the learning of the Ancient Greeks and Romans, including a uniform system of script called Bookhand which included upper and lower case letters and punctuation. The monks had to instruct their converts not only in the Christian doctrine but in the Latin tongue. They had to teach reading and writing including calligraphy, painting, music, chronology and the knowledge of the calendar.

All of this almost came to an end during the separation of the Carolingian Empire and invasions by the Saracens, Magyars, and especially the Vikings. The Viking raids and then invasions almost destroyed Western Civilization. Their destruction of monasteries was almost a catastrophe. For 25 years England was plundered from end to end and drained of immense sums of money and relics.Christopher Dawson

However, as Christopher Dawson mentioned in his book, Religion and the Rise of Western Culture, if one monastery survived, it drew other monks who renewed the work to live a disciplined of chant, prayer, and teaching/learning. The Viking leaders who led lives of lawlessness and plunder had to have law and order to rule their newly conquered areas, and the literacy of the Christian leaders and monks helped the Vikings with administration but more importantly civilized them as good Christians.Christopher Dawson
What was lost with the collapse of the Carolingian Frankish Empire was gained in Germany. Europe and the Church were saved by Otto II’s victory over the Magyars (the Hungarians) in 955 at the Battle of Lechfeld. The German rulers then had the power and recognized authority to nominate Popes and bishops. The Catholic authorities originally accepted this arrangement to mute the influence and power of Italian/Roman nobility. However, this arrangement stopped when Pope Boniface VIII (1073-1085) excommunicated Henry IV (1056-1106) over the Investiture Controversy (who would invest the German bishops-the Pope or German rulers).Christopher Dawson

This gradually led to the Catholic independence from secular rulers. The Church became a universal sovereign power which imposed its own laws and enforced them in its own courts by its own judges and lawyers. It was an organized bureaucracy and an efficient system of centralized control carried out by permanent officials.

Later, there was a rise of feudalism that seemed to mark a return of barbarism in which the world was ruled by those who had the power. Such men were cruel and hard masters, who enforced respect for their authority on their unruly vassals. Nothing could be further from the Christian ethos.

The Church found a new outlet for the warlike energies of the feudal society: the crusade. You could win pardon for your sins by becoming a soldier for Christ. The First Crusade was very successful from France to Jerusalem to defeat the Turkish and Egyptian forces and to establish a chain of Christian states along the Syrian coast and inland to the Euphrates River valley.

Dawson did not exclude the Byzantine Greek Church and Western Civilization. He argued that the Byzantines were more interested in using their supposed enemies against each other which interfered with missionary work. Yet, some of the German rulers’ imperialism also alienated many of the Slavic people some of whom became Catholic such as the Polish and Hungarians. Dawson also explained the religious and political differences between the Latin Catholic West and the Byzantine East. Some of these differences were made worse by the Crusaders taking control of Constantinople in 1204
Dawson also gave credit to the gradual urbanization of Medieval Europe. The new cities were often defined by their walls and towers. The medieval city became a new creation, which transformed the economic and social life of Western Europe as centers of learning.  At one point the schools flourished so much that they were accessible even to the poorest.

In the new cities the medieval guilds developed a sense of religious and civic pride that was acceptable to urban residents. The guilds men developed a sense of honest business and economic “fair play” that mostly avoided economic and social conflict. The guilds also provided charity and help those who needed it. The guilds men organized Passion Plays and supported the Catholic Church with its great Gothic cathedrals in their midst as a center of both religious liturgy and social influence. The rise of the medieval cities and the merchant class started to end serfdom and the feudal system. Eventually in France and England the rise of the national monarchy deprived the cities of their political independence and ultimately their internal autonomy.

There was also a religious crisis of medieval culture. An alliance of the medieval society and the governing elements of the Church had been broken: the spiritual unity and the creative power of medieval culture gradually disappeared. It appeared to make Rome seem like a second Babylon. Consequently, heresies abound.  The papacy used the same methods as it employed against the Muslims – the method of the crusades and finally by a code of repressive legislation that gave birth to the Inquisition.

The older cathedral schools and monastic schools were not developed to handle large numbers of students. The expansion of learning and the rise of the universities began with the medieval towns. Dawson contrasted the University of Paris (c. 1200), with its focus on philosophy and theology, with the University of Bologna (c. 1158). The latter university focused on Roman and Canon Law which were connected. The University of Bologna was organized by the students as a secular institution. The University of Paris took pride as a center of Catholic philosophy and theology so much so that law studies were excluded.

A well known scholar who taught at the University of Paris was St. Thomas Aquinas (1225-1274) whose synthesis of reason and faith is considered a work of genius. Dawson stated that rigid logic, careful debate, and reason not only had application to the study of philosophy and theology, but such emphasis on disciplined reason enhanced the study of science and mathematics.

During the terrible Hundred Years War (1346-1453), the Black Death, the Schism in the Catholic Church (1377-1414), were disastrous to Europe, Christianity, and culture. Political instability, disease, economic situations were transitory while Christianity and Western Culture remained permanent as long as Western Civilization survived.

The influence of the new humanist culture spread from Italy to the rest of Europe in the later fifteenth and the sixteenth centuries providing a bond of intellectual and artistic unity between the two halves of divided Christendom and between the nations of Europe.”

However, the 18th century Enlightenment that culminated in the French Revolution swept away the venerable relics of medieval Christendom and wrecked cultural unity. This secular movement, which denied the eternal truths of Christianity and the moral value of humanism, opened the gates of the dark irrational forces.

In our own time after the Second World War, a new generation of neo-pagans began to lead “a revolt against the moral process of Western culture and the dethronement of the individual conscience”. The cult of state would become the religion of the contemporary world and a hierarchic, bureaucratic state would deny citizens fundamental rights and liberties that come from the hand of God.

Educational systems in the United States and Europe that transmitted a system of common beliefs and moral standards would be stamped out by the secular state. The common values conveyed in classical education would be replaced with a more technical education that would teach the masses that the basic condition of a free society is the relativity of truth.Christopher Dawson

As for the United States, Dawson observed, “In the past, American society derived [its spiritual] force from the religious idealism of sectarian Protestantism, and its principles from the eighteenth century ideology of Natural Rights and rational Enlightenment. But today both these forces have lost their power. American religion has lost its supernatural faith and American philosophy has lost its rational certitude.” This situation coupled with the expansion of materialism “has been accompanied by a neglect and loss of the spiritual resources on which the inner strength of a civilization depends.”

Sadly, during the past half century, many “leaders of culture” – Catholics, Protestants and Jews – have walked away from the Culture Wars and allowed secular forces to develop, essentially uncriticized and unchecked. The Church has now lost close to three generations of its faithful to the secular utilitarians – a simple fact that makes Dawson’s call to arms even more difficult.

To recover Christian culture, Dawson called on Christians to rise up and break the secularist’s control of education. Education of our youth, he argued, is crucial, because it is the “process by which the new members of a community are initiated into its way of life and thought from the simplest elements of behavior or manners up to the highest tradition of spiritual wisdom.”

Nevertheless, no matter how bad it gets, Dawson insisted that the mission of Church is to nourish and preserve the tradition of sacred culture. “However secularized our modern civilization may become,” Dawson concluded, “this sacred tradition remains like a river in the desert, and a genuine religious education can still use it to irrigate the thirsty lands and to change the face of the world with the promise of new life.”

The Church is not dead, but dormant for now. Silence of faithful Christians is partially to blame for this culture war we find ourselves in. It will take a long time for the Church to be seen as alive and well. The Church is going to become small again, small because of the reduced number of faithful Christians. The church may be dormant now, but it has survived over 2,000 years, and will become vibrant and alive again because we look to Him.

Dawson argued that Western civilization is at a turning point and confronted with two real choices: re-appropriate a vital Christian culture or move increasingly toward more dangerous and alienated expressions of consumerism and totalitarianism. A return to the Christian culture that had formed Western civilization is the only remedy for a world adrift.  No culture can truly thrive if cut off from its religious roots.

WHY IS GOD HIDING?

HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED HOW TO BECOME A CHRISTIAN?god proof

  • Christians don’t shout, “I am clean living!” They whisper “I was lost, but now I’m found and forgiven.” 
  • Christians don’t speak of this with pride. They confess that they stumble and need Christ to be their guide.
  • Christians don’t say,” I’m strong.” They say they are trying to be strong because they are really weak and need strength. 
  • Christians don’t brag of success, but they admit that they are failing and they need God to clean up the mess.
  • Christians don’t claim to be perfect. Their flaws are far too visible but God believes they are worth it.
  • Christians still feel the sting of pain and they have their share of headaches but they call upon His Name.
  • Christians are not holier than thou. They are also simple sinners who receive God’s unbelievable grace.
