WE ARE IN YOUR FACE DEVIL IN THE NAME OF JESUS!

“God is love!” 1 John 4:8, 16

Without LOVE, we are nothing! Read 1 Corinthians 13 every morning this week! Beg God to change your life from the depths of your being and to fill you with His love as only He can do!

If you participate in a white supremacy group or black lives matter group, perhaps it’s YOU who is the racist – full of soul-damning hatred (Galatians 5:19-21; 1 John 4:8; Revelation 21:8). The LORD is calling you to truly repent before it’s too late.

So let me get this straight: You claim to know Jesus and yet you have no time to obey His Great Commission command and yet you have all this time, mental and physical energy, and wherewithal to participate in a hate group?! If that’s you – you are a lost soul!

FROM AUDREY BOYD: “Audrey Boyd yes indeed, we went down town Dallas today and honored cops in Dallas and we will continue praying for all police officers– everywhere ( we must all remember that we do not wrestle against flesh and blood ( not against men ) but against spiritual wickedness in high places, rulers of darkness of this dark world –( the enemy = devil ) –but by the power of the Holy Ghost , through Jesus Christ — we win — in him and by his spirit –AMEN — walk in the spirit — That which is flesh is flesh and does mind the things of the flesh– the same way , that which is spirit is spirit , does mind the things of the spirit of GOD — LIFE, HEALING, LOVE, JOY , PEACE in the HOLY GHOST , and so much more — the kingdom of God consist of that which is Spiritual — not flesh / carnal — AMEN —”

church-racial-body-of-christ

Lavel Tyler writes: “There is only one race in the body of Christ and that is the christian race. And we are a peculiar people. For we do not look at the skin color when we look at a person but we see everyone as a living soul. We do not judge an entire group or race of people based on the actions or behaviors of one or a few individuals. Whoever possesses this kind of mentality, their judgment and their heart is impaired. There is no such thing as a racist christian. Because when God opens your eyes to the gospel He gives you a heart to see every individual person as a living soul in need of a personal Savior and relationship with God. And that then becomes your main focus. Galatians 3:28 says “There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; For you are all one in Christ Jesus.” Meaning that whatever color, race, or gender you were born is what you are.. but when you give your life to Christ who you are becomes– a child of God. That becomes your new identity and that is how you see every other saint that holds to the same faith as you, as a child of God. With all the division there is in the world today, the body of Christ needs to stand together in Unity more than ever before. The enemy wants to see us divided and not fellowshipping with one another but if we will join together in the Spirit standing in love and in truth we will strengthen and build one another up and be unscathed by the schemes of the devil. May this unity spread all throughout the body of Christ.”

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

—-SMACK THAT DEVIL TODAY …. HERE’S HOW YOU CAN DO THAT …. WHITE DUSTED (SKIN, HUE) SAINTS – KICK THAT DEVIL UNDER HIS FILTHY, EVIL CHIN – CALL OR EMAIL your black friends and tell them that you ARE lifting them in prayer today …. AND YOU BLACK SKINNED SAINTS – call or email your fellowship believers in Christ’s body and let them know your praying for them!!!! The devil is the author of hatred and God “is love.”

“Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. 8 He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.” 1 John 4:7-8

Saints only Christ’s body can apply the healing balm of His blessed salvation in this fleeting, fallen world! There is no other solution! PREACH! DO! BE HIS BODY! HE’S WITH YOU EVERY STEP!!!!!
“Ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful. ” Colossians 3:15

THERE are only 2 kingdoms in this world – Christ’s and the devil’s! Rescue the perishing as only God can do THROUGH YOU – HIS BODY!!!! AND GUESS WHAT?!?!?! JUST HOW MUCH MORE POWERFUL IS HIS LOVE DEMONSTRATED THAN WHEN YOU REACH OUT WITH CHRIST’S GOSPEL TO A PERSON WHO IS NOT OF YOUR RACE?!?!?!?!

Flood of Noah is a Type of Baptism

noah-gen-6-3

Flood of Noah is a Type of Baptism. 1 Pet 3:18-22

“Baptism” means “overwhelmed with calamity.” Satan is always the active agent in every calamity, each type of baptism, whether in fire as in Dan 3 or in water as in Gen 6-8 and Exodus 14.

The word “baptism” is also symbolic of our participation with Christ in His death, burial and resurrection. See Rom 6:3-5. Satan kills and God raises the dead. God never kills and Satan can’t raise the dead.

In Gen 6:3, we see that God is striving to RESTRAIN the evil of mankind on earth.

Noah, his family and his creatures entered the ark thru a door in its side. The ark had three levels symbolizing tripartite man as the incarnate Christ. As a True Christians, we enter Christ thru the wound in His side, in His death. It is thru our death with Christ, the sharing of His sacred wounds, that we come to be in Him. Rom 6:3-5

In Gen 7:11, God STOPS RESTRAINING Satan. The heavenly and earthly flood gates are opened for Satan’s chaotic waters to be released and rush forth with destruction. Satan is always the one who has the power of death (Heb 2:14) and who steals, kills and destroys. John 10:10. Death is the enemy of God. 1 Cor 15:26. God allows death and takes the blame for it and also lets the Bible record, “I (The Lord) will destroy man . . .” Gen 6:7.

The flood destroys “the mighty men” who are the offspring of evil angels but raises, lifts up and saves the people and animals who entered the ark and takes them to the top of Mt Ararat. The cross destroys unbelieving mighty men as did the fiery furnace destroy “the mighty men” in Daniel 3:22. The cross and resurrection save and lift believers to the top of heaven and seats them there with Christ in heavenly places. Eph 2:6.

God STARTS AGAIN TO RESTRAIN Satan and his flood in Gen 8:2.

The ark rests on Ararat just as the believer finds rest thru his death with Christ. Resurrection rest means we no longer have to furnish the power to please God or get thru life. God furnishes the power while we rest!

The earth, thru this baptism in the flood waters of Genesis, has been purified and can now again be replenished just as it was in the beginning. See Gen 1 and 2. This is another example of the aikido-like self-destruction of evil. Satan’s flood destroyed Satan’s people and the people of God were saved, purified and raised up by it.

He who letteth (RESTRAINS) will let (RESTRAIN) until He be taken out of the way. 2 Thes 2:6-8. This is the principle of the cross and redemptive withdrawal all thru the Bible.

God’s judgments are always done in this way thru the principle of the cross. His wrath and anger is to let the angry ones, Satan and his minions, destroy evil and themselves! Satan casts out Satan. His house is thereby divided and so must fall. Mark 3.

This revelation of the flood comes from reading the Bible thru the lens of the cross-understanding. God does not kill or destroy. Satan steals, kills and destroys. God does allow Satan to do it but always with a redemptive and good purpose! God is good, not just sometime, but ALL the time!

And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood. And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth. Rev 12:15-16.

Do you have eyes to see and ears to hear this truth, the God did not cause the flood of Noah but Satan did? It cannot be perceived thru human logic or intellect. God is love. His only way of killing and destroying is thru the principle of the cross and redemptive withdrawal.

sanctification - todd tomasella

The Truth about Holiness

“Who is like unto thee, O LORD, among the gods? who is like thee, glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders?” Exodus 15:11

HOLINESS is NOT a work of the flesh saints any more than salvation is of mere men or a work of men (Galatians 3:3).

“But the salvation of the righteous is of the LORD: he is their strength in the time of trouble.” Psalms 37:39

He who saves, sanctifies – as we abide in Him (John 15:1-6; Philippians 2:12-13, etc.). Holiness is a work of the Holy Ghost in the life of the abiding saint (John 15:1-16). Any holiness that is outside of this biblical truth/model is a work of the flesh and God-less (Matthew 23:23-25; Galatians 3:3). CHRIST alone can save and sanctify! Only Jesus is the Savior and Sanctifier! 1 Corinthians 1:30 says “But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and SANCTIFICATION, and redemption:” As the appropriation of all things in Christ’s kingdom, it’s by faith saints! (Romans 4:4-5; Hebrews 11:6) Please share this post.

holiness quote - todd tomasella

Holy Scripture reveals that there is a “True holiness” as opposed to a false or feigned holiness (Matthew 23:23-25; Ephesians 4:24). Which one are you walking in?

PERSONAL HOLINESS IS ESSENTIAL AND YET, IT’S NOT A WORK OF THE FLESH BUT RATHER A WORK OF GOD IN THE LIFE OF THE TRULY BORN AGAIN, CURRENTLY ABIDING BELIEVER WHOSE “FIRST LOVE” IS JESUS CHRIST (REVELATION 2:4-5).

“The LORD will perfect that which concerneth me: thy mercy, O LORD, endureth for ever: forsake not the works of thine own hands.” Psalms 138:8

“Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling. 13 For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.” Philippians 2:12-13

Divine Boldness is not Brash

divine boldness

Biblically speaking, boldness is not brashness or being obnoxious. Actually those are a bad witness, aren’t they? Boldness is simply being fully confident in Christ and not being ashamed. Boldness should be married with great joy, grace, mercy, and love.
The Bible says that “the righteous are bold as a lion” and not that “the righteous are brash as a lion.” (Proverbs 28:1)

“The wicked flee when no man pursueth: but the righteous are bold as a lion.” Proverbs 28:1

It seems obvious by reading the whole verse above, that Christ-glorifying boldness means one is grounded and confident in Christ and not timid or fearful. They are meek and temperate and settled in an abiding relationship with Jesus and therefore live free from sinful fear which is cast out by God’s love (1 John 4:16-18).

When God’s boldness is in a person through a rooted relationship with Christ, the 9 fruit of the Spirit will be manifesting (John 15:1-16).

“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, 23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. 24 And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.” Galatians 5:22-24

The key to an abiding relationship, fellowship with Christ is the daily cross – out of which will unfailingly produce the fruit that glorifies the LORD.

Father, in Jesus’ holy name, please instill yourself deeply in us this day. Let our whole identity be Christ. Steep and season in us Thy grace, truth, and love LORD Jesus.

THE PRAYER OF THE EARLY CHURCH WAS FOR DIVINE BOLDNESS. NOTE THAT THEY WERE DEPENDENT UPON THE LORD, SEEKING HIM BEFORE THEY WENT OUT AND DURING THAT WHOLE TIME THEY WERE BEING PERSECUTED. WHEN UNDER GREAT PERSECUTION, HAVING JUST BEEN BEATEN FOR CHRIST, THE APOSTLES CRIED OUT TO JESUS.

“And now, Lord, behold their threatenings: and grant unto thy servants, that with all boldness they may speak thy word, 30 By stretching forth thine hand to heal; and that signs and wonders may be done by the name of thy holy child Jesus. 31 And when they had prayed, the place was shaken where they were assembled together; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they spake the word of God with boldness.” Acts 4:29-31

Father, in the name of Jesus Christ our LORD, we ask You to grant Your people Christ-like boldness which is full of grace and truth. Quicken us in those times of persecution, to cry out to Thee for Your strength and boldness. Please keep us from misrepresenting You – from using Your holy name in vain. Bless me to be crucified with Christ, truth. In Jesus’ name.

True Ministers of Christ

truth quote

(PLEASE READ) “WE NEED MINISTERS AND PREACHERS WHO ARE MEN OF TRUTH, WHO FEAR GOD, AND TELL IT LIKE IT IS AND SET A GODLY EXAMPLE !!

A godly preacher will love you enough to preach the Truth to you and bring correction to you even if you do not like it! He will not be a crowd pleaser!! Woe to the minister who loves the applause of men and who avoids reproof, rebuke, correction and heartfelt exhortation! We are not called to be liked but to minister the Word of God.

SOME JUST WANT SWEETS WHEN WHAT THEY NEED IS THE STRONG MEDICINE OF THE WORD OF GOD! EVEN MANY OF OUR MODERN SONGS LACK GODLY CONTENT THAT SHOULD PUT THE FOCUS ON GOD HIMSELF. Some are very repetitive and very shallow and the focus is too much on me, me, me and how I feel.

Thank God for the ones that do glorify God! Just read an old hymnal when you are on your knees. You see depth and heartfelt convictions and biblical truths put to song.

We need godly ministers with the character of the men who served with Moses!

predators-larger-shadow3

predators larger shadowExodus 18:21 “Moreover thou shall provide out of the people able men, such as fear God, men of truth, hating covetousness; and place such over them to be rulers…”

MY HEART BREAKS THAT THERE ARE FEW MEN LIKE THIS TODAY. WHERE IS THE FEAR OF GOD IN THE PULPIT? WHERE ARE THERE GODLY MEN WHO HATE GREED? WHERE ARE THE MEN WHO LIVE AND PREACH THE TRUTH WITH INTEGRITY??

We need godly ministers who please God and do not tickle ears! Men who preach what is True not what is popular! Truth that convicts! Truth that converts! Truth that transforms people’s lives! Men filled with the Spirit of Truth!

We do not compromise the Truth, we declare the Truth! Truth is to be applied, not denied!

Spineless, soft, people pleasing preachers will tell you what you want to hear, not what you need to hear! Remember the local church will become like its pastor! He sets the example! I do not want pop culture opinions and smooth sayings!

1. A.W. TOZER : “I pray I may preach with such convicting power that my people will sweat. I do not want them to leave my services always feeling good. The last thing I want is to give them some kind of religious tranquilizer and let them go to hell in their relaxation! The messages in our churches should make backslidden Christians sweat!”

2. A.W. TOZER: ‘The pastor when facing his congregation on Sunday dare not think of the effect that his sermon will have on his job, his salary or his future relationship with the Church. No man is a good preacher who is not willing to lay his future on the line every time he expounds the Word!”

2nd Timothy 4:2-4 “Preach the Word: be instant in season, out of season, reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but after their own lusts shall heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears. And they shall turn away their ears from the Truth, and shall be turned unto fables.”

DEAR FRIEND WE ARE IN THESE TIMES RIGHT NOW!!! FEW PREACH THE WORD! FEW REPROVE THEIR PEOPLE! FEW REBUKE ANYONE LEST THEY LOSE PEOPLE AND MONEY! MOST WILL NOT ENDURE “SOUND DOCTRINE.”

deceiverssmallThey want an instant “easy-going, relaxing” cozy false gospel that feeds their lusts for the things of the world! Where are the godly pilgrims who are on the narrow road that leads to heaven?? Pilgrims who set their affections on things above not on earthly things! The earth bound gospel that focuses our attention on the world is not the real gospel. The real gospel produces a person who is radical for Jesus and lives holy unto the Lord in a rotten sin-filled world!!

3. Let me give you one more quote from A.W. TOZER- “In many Churches the gospel has been so watered down until the solution is so weak that if it were medicine it would not cure anyone.” SHARE THIS POST WITH OTHERS AS THE LORD LEADS YOU.

PS-Jesus Himself said “the lusts of other things will choke the Word and it will become unfruitful.” Preachers who focus on “things” and not on knowing our high and holy God are deceiving you! Wake up and read the Word and develop discernment!

What the Bible Says About Familiar Spirits

witchcraft familiar spirits

Todd Tomasella: “Regard not them that have familiar spirits, neither seek after wizards, to be defiled by them: I AM the LORD your GOD.” Leviticus 19:31 King James Bible

A familiar spirit is a demon that is summoned by a medium with the intention that the spirit summoned will obey his or her commands. Often, familiar spirits are believed to be the spirits of people who have died (Duet. 18:11). However, Biblically this is not the case. Such appearances are in actuality demonic forces imitating people in order to deceive.

We know that people cannot come back from the dead from what Jesus said in Luke 16:19-31 when He gave us the story of Lazarus and the rich man. Jesus said in verse 26 “and besides all this, between us and you there is a great chasm fixed, so that those who wish to come over from here to you will not be able, and that none may cross over from there to us.” So, we can see that people cannot come back from the dead. However, we cannot leave this topic without addressing 1 Samuel 28 that deals with Saul and the medium who, apparently, actually contacted the departed Spirit of Samuel. Commentators are split on whether or not this was actually Samuel, but the text seems to imply it was. So why the exception? We are not sure, but it might have been allowed for the purpose of rebuking Saul for his sin–something that does not happen with familiar spirits when they manifest. Perhaps it is a teaching tool to show us the difference between those who are really of God (Samuel) and those who are not (familiar spirits).

familiar spiritsThe two words, “familiar spirit,” in the King James Bible are translated into the English from the single Hebrew word obe אֹוב.

• Lev. 19:31, “Regard not them that have familiar spirits, neither seek after wizards, to be defiled by them: I am the LORD your God.”
• 1 Chron. 10:13, “So Saul died for his transgression which he committed against the LORD, even against the word of the LORD, which he kept not, and also for asking counsel of one that had a familiar spirit, to inquire of it.”
• 2 Chron. 33:6, “And he caused his children to pass through the fire in the valley of the son of Hinnom: also he observed times, and used enchantments, and used witchcraft, and dealt with a familiar spirit, and with wizards: he wrought much evil in the sight of the LORD, to provoke him to anger.” • Lev. 19:31, “Do not turn to mediums or spiritists; do not seek them out to be defiled by them. I am the LORD your God.”
• 1 Chron. 10:13, “So Saul died for his trespass which he committed against the LORD, because of the word of the LORD which he did not keep; and also because he asked counsel of a medium, making inquiry of it.”
• 2 Chron. 33:6, ” He made his sons pass through the fire in the valley of Ben-hinnom; and he practiced witchcraft, used divination, practiced sorcery and dealt with mediums and spiritists. He did much evil in the sight of the LORD, provoking Him to anger.

“Question: “What are familiar spirits?”Answer: The word familiar is from the Latin familiaris, meaning a “household servant,” and is intended to express the idea that sorcerers had spirits as their servants ready to obey their commands. Those attempting to contact the dead, even to this day, usually have some sort of spirit guide who communicates with them. These are familiar spirits.

Leviticus 19:31; 20:6, 27; and Deuteronomy 18:9-14 refer to “mediums and familiar spirits” and forbids being involved with them, as they are an abomination to the Lord. A medium is one who acts as a liaison to supposedly contact or communicate with the dead on behalf of the living. In reality mediums are contacting demons who convince the mediums that they are “familiar” and can be trusted and believed. The practices associated with mediums and familiar spirits were banned in Israel, and the punishment for practicing such things was death.

familiar-spirits1Familiar spirits and spirit guides are under the control of their master, Satan. They influence people to spread lies and deceit in order to thwart the kingdom of God. To knowingly open oneself to the work of demons is an evil thing: “Let no one be found among you who sacrifices his son or daughter in [a] fire, who practices divination or sorcery, interprets omens, engages in witchcraft, or casts spells, or who is a medium or spiritist or who consults the dead. Anyone who does these things is detestable to the LORD” (Deuteronomy 18:10-12a). Some avenues through which demons or “familiar spirits” can gain entrance into a person’s life are divination, transcendental meditation, visualization, necromancy, witchcraft, drugs, and alcohol, sin filled occult movies and sinful acts. These are all activities that believers are exhorted to avoid. Instead, we are to be filled with the Holy Spirit, with love, with joy, and with the fullness of life that comes from personally knowing The LORD Jesus Christ. We are also to be on guard, “for our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms” (Ephesians 6:12).

“And the soul that turneth after such as have familiar spirits, and after wizards, to go a whoring after them, I will even set My Face against that soul, and will cut him off from among his people. Sanctify yourselves therefore, and be ye holy; for I AM The LORD your God.” Leviticus 20:6-7 {KJV}

“And when I see the Blood, I will pass over you.” Exodus 12:13b King James Bible

How We Know the Bible is the only Holy Book

Jesus-angry-look

This is an essential component of divine truth imperative for a sound foundation.

“Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me, 10 Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure:” Isaiah 46:9-10

ONLY GOD COULD KNOW “THE END FROM THE BEGINNING.” (ISAIAH 46:9-10) PLEASE MEDITATE ON THIS. THE WORD OF GOD IS SEEN TO BE JUST THAT BECAUSE IT FORETOLD IN DETAIL BEFOREHAND MANY EVENTS THAT HAVE COME TO PASS JUST AS THEY WERE SPOKEN HUNDREDS AND SOMETIMES THOUSANDS OF YEARS BEFORE THEY HAPPENED. FOR EXAMPLE: THE EXACT TOWN THE MESSIAH WAS TO BE BORN IN WAS FORETOLD (BETHLEHEM) AND HE WAS (MICAH 5:2), THAT HE WOULD BE MIRACULOUSLY BORN OF A VIRGIN AND HE WAS (ISAIAH 7:14), THAT HE WOULD BE CALLED EMMANUEL AND HE WAS AND IS (ISAIAH 7:14), THAT HE WOULD BE BETRAYED FOR 30 PIECES OF SILVER AND HE WAS (ZECHARIAH 11:12-13), …. MORE ON THE CHART BELOW.

The LORD told us in His Word that not one of His promises, including the prophecies of His and our Messiah, would ever fail. They are as sure as life and the One who gave it.

“Seek ye out of the book of the LORD, and read: no one of these shall fail … ” Isaiah 34:16

No other “holy book” can make this claim (foretelling the future and their exact fulfillment) which makes them false, counterfeit.

THESE PROPHETIC PROMISES AND THEIR FULFILLMENT WOULD BE STATISTICALLY IMPOSSIBLE UNLESS THEY ORIGINATED FROM GOD WHO TELLS THE END FROM THE BEGINNING.

More prophecies and their fulfillment on the chart below. Please pore prayerfully over the list of these prophecies and their fulfillment and please help others to know this amazing, divine phenomenon.  This will be the most foundation-building study of your whole life. This is essential in being truly grounded in Christ.
