The Valley of Vision | Todd Tomasella

Isaiah’s vision of the cross. Isaiah 22

vally-of-vision

Todd tomasella: Is 22 begins with the vision of Isaiah, where there is a coming judgment of Judah. All spiritual vision comes to us when we are in a valley of trouble, destruction and despair. This is the experience of the cross of Christ.

Isaiah 22:6-8

6 And Elam bare the quiver with chariots of men and horsemen, and Kir uncovered the shield.

7 And it shall come to pass, that thy choicest valleys shall be full of chariots, and the horsemen shall set themselves in array at the gate.

8 And he discovered the covering of (removed the protection of) Judah, and thou didst look in that day to the armour of the house of the forest.

The Lord had called the people of Judah to weeping, mourning, baldness, stripping and sackcloth. These are all foreshadowing of times when we are called to take up the cross. The people of Judah refused the cross of mourning and stripping and chose for self and self-indulgence instead.

Todd tomasella said that this chapter is a picture of the key doctrine of the message of the cross named “redemptive withdrawal.” God removes His protective hand and turns the people of Judah over to the destructive hands of enemies, Elam and Kir. See verse 4 quoted above. God weeps for His people when turning over to the enemy has to occur. 22:4.

We are always being handed over to death for Jesus sake in order that the life of Jesus may be manifested in our mortal bodies. 2 Cor 4:11. This is Redemptive Withdrawal.

Isaiah 22:12-14.

12 And in that day did the Lord GOD of hosts call to weeping, and to mourning, and to baldness, and to girding with sackcloth:

13 And behold joy and gladness, slaying oxen, and killing sheep, eating flesh, and drinking wine: let us eat and drink; for tomorrow we shall die

14 And it was revealed in mine ears by the LORD of hosts, surely this iniquity shall not be purged from you TILL YE DIE, saith the Lord GOD of hosts.

There had to be a death to purge them of their wickedness. This is a foreshadowing of our own need to experience the cross in order to die to self, to be purged, purified, sifted, sanctified and grow in grace.

Shebna, steward or treasurer of the house of Judah, a type of Satan, had become the head of the house of Judah. So God told Isaiah to go and say some things to Shebna. See the 5 verses below:

Isaiah 22:15-19.

V15. Thus saith the Lord GOD of hosts, go, get thee unto this treasurer, even unto Shebna, which is over the house, and say,

16 What hast thou here? and whom hast thou here, that thou hast hewed thee out a sepulchre here, as he that heweth him out a sepulchre on high, and that graveth an habitation for himself in a rock?

17 Behold, the LORD will carry thee away with a mighty captivity, and will surely cover thee.

18 He will surely violently turn and toss thee like a ball into a large country: there shalt thou die, and there the chariots of thy glory shall be the shame of thy lord’s house.

V18 is a foreshadowing of Satan’s self-destruction at the cross. John 12:31. Satan was and is being violently cast out by his own act of violence against Jesus at the cross. God’s only violent act of all time is the cross of Christ. At Calvary, Satan “hewed him out” his own burial place in the Rock, Christ crucified. See v16 above.

Is 22:19. “And I will drive thee from thy station, and from thy state shall he pull thee down.” Satan and all his arrogant followers are taken down from the throne of self-thru the destruction of the cross of Calvary.

The remaining verses in Is 22 are about Eliakim, a type of Christ, who will come and take over Satan’s house and kingdom thru the cross. The whole thing, Satan’s position, his fallen angel followers, his possessions and his people (the entire “old man”) will “hang” with Christ when Jesus is nailed to that “sure place” at Calvary. All of Satan’s kingdom will be “cut off” thru the cross. The key of government which is put on Eliakim’s shoulders is the cross that Jesus shouldered and took up, for us and as us. The entire old man was crucified with Christ. Rom 6:6. Satan and his fallen angels were stripped off and spoiled at the cross. Col 2:15. Their stripping and spoiling of Jesus was His stripping and spoiling of them. Satan was defanged by his own act at Calvary. 1 Cor 2:6-8; Heb 2:14. The door way of the cross is a door which only Christ can open and shut.

Isaiah 22:20-25.

20 And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will call my servant Eliakim the son of Hilkiah:

21 And I will clothe him with thy robe, and strengthen him with thy girdle, and I will commit thy government into his hand: and he shall be a father to the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and to the house of Judah.

22 And the key of the house of David will I lay upon his shoulder; so he shall open, and none shall shut; and he shall shut, and none shall open.

23 And I will fasten him as a nail in a sure place; and he shall be for a glorious throne to his father’s house.

24 And they shall hang upon him all the glory of his father’s house, the offspring and the issue, all vessels of small quantity, from the vessels of cups, even to all the vessels of flagons.

25 In that day, saith the LORD of hosts, shall the nail that is fastened in the sure place be removed, and be cut down, and fall; and the burden that was upon it shall be cut off: for the LORD hath spoken it.

To summarize, God removed His protective cover off of Judah and allowed Elam and Judah to attack. Shebna, a type of Satan, the steward and head of the house of Judah, was destroyed thru the attack of Judah by these enemies. Eliakim, type of Jesus, was hung and the entire weight of Shebna’s and Judah’s glory was taken down with Him forever at Calvary.

The valley of vision is a prophecy of Christ crucified, a death that “destroyed the works of the devil.” 1 John 3:8.

September 23 Rapture Deception

23 sept Deception

Todd tomasella: All around us we see false prophets use date-setting, manipulations, false predictions, and hysteria to deceive those who are not truly abiding soundly in Christ. This late hour is not the time to be doing anything except engaging in a grounded, cross-bearing, abiding, fruit-bearing relationship with Jesus Christ (John 15).

GOD is not going to tell you the exact day of Christ’s return. Repent and get over yourself!

“But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.” Matthew 24:36

IF we could figure out the timeline/day of Christ’s return, WHY would Jesus ever have said this?: “But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.” Matthew 24:36

Cross-Less Counterfeits Exposed

End is near

Those want to be convinced that Jesus is coming back on a certain day are Christ-denying, self-serving devils as described the Holy Spirit to us right here – watch v5 in particular:

“This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. 2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, 4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; 5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power (authority, reign of Christ in their person life) thereof: from such turn away. 6 For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, 7 Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.” 2 Timothy 3:1-7

Here in Matthew 24:36 Jesus tells us that we cannot and will not know the exact day of His return. We are instructed repeatedly by Christ to live every single day as if He will return. It’s those who are not truly living for Christ daily – loving and worshiping Hm for who He is – that give ear to false prophets and cling to the date-setting hoaxes.

THE LORD IS NOT GOING TO TELL YOU THE EXACT DATE OF HIS RETURN BECAUSE HE SAYS YOU CANNOT PLEASE HIM WITHOUT FAITH – LIVING BY FAITH (2 CORINTHIANS 5:7; HEBREWS 11:6. ETC.). THE ONLY HEAVEN-BOUND SAINTS LIVE BY FAITH AND ARE DENYING THEMSELVES TODAY, TAKING UP THEIR CROSS, AND FOLLOWING JESUS (LUKE 9:23-24). AND, IF WE KNEW THE EXACT DATE OF HIS RETURN THE COUNTERFEITS WOULD WAIT TILL THE DAY BEFORE TO RENDER SOME KIND OF REPENTANCE.

“Let your loins be girded about, and your lights burning; 36 And ye yourselves like unto men that wait for their lord, when he will return from the wedding; that when he cometh and knocketh, they may open unto him immediately. 37 Blessed are those servants, whom the lord when he cometh shall find watching: verily I say unto you, that he shall gird himself, and make them to sit down to meat, and will come forth and serve them. 38 And if he shall come in the second watch, or come in the third watch, and find them so, blessed are those servants. 39 And this know, that if the goodman of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched, and not have suffered his house to be broken through. 40 Be ye therefore ready also: for the Son of man cometh at an hour when ye think not.” Luke 12:35-40

If you’ve allowed yourself to be duped by yet another date-setter who claimed to have Scripture to “prove” he knew the exact day Jesus would return, it’s time to truly repent.

SEPTEMBER 23RD WILL COME AND GO AND SHOULD MAKE IT MORE THAN OBVIOUS THAT MANY HAVE BEEN DECEIVED.

IS the “man of sin” revealed? No. Watch this:

“Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, 2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. 3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;” 2 Thessalonians 2:1-3

Times and Seasons

We know “the times and seasons” but not exact day of Christ’s return. Listen please:

“And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power.” Acts 1:7

“But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you.” 1 Thessalonians 5:1

Are YOU Marriage Material?

Preparing for Marriage

Are you approaching daily life and marriage with a SERVANT’s heart or to get your own “needs” met?

Are you personally denying yourself daily, taking up the cross, and following Jesus?

husband manhood serve humility cherish

REPENT FOR REAL, LAY DOWN YOUR LIFE WITHOUT RESERVE AND BEGIN TODAY SERVING HIM AND OTHERS – NOT YOURSELF! MEMORIZING PHILIPPIANS 2:3-5 WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE. PRAYERFULLY READ THIS VITAL PASSAGE IN YOUR BIBLE STUDY EVERY SINGLE MORNING!

“For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.” Colossians 3:3

GOT YOUR SEAT BELT ON? IN MARRIAGE, the wife is to be loved, provided for, protected, and to be cherished by the husband, even as Christ loves and does with His church (Ephesians 5:25-30). In a marriage between a man and woman that glorifies God, there must be a foundational biblical revelation of the purpose for which men and women were originally, uniquely created. Satan has come in like a massive flood upon the minds of the “weaker vessel” to convince her that she needs all kinds of things that God never ordained or said were needs. In the unchanging divine economy, the most beautiful of all His creation, the woman, is to be the “helpmeet” (companion, helper, help mate to accomplish GOD’s will) of the man (Genesis 2:18). A godly relationship must be founded and grounded on God’s Word – both the man and woman repenting and learning and DOING what God has stated for their respective, unique roles. We must get rid of all we’ve ever learned from the wicked worldly societies we’ve learned from (Romans 12:1-2; Ephesians 4:23-25., etc.). If you are praying for that godly mate and yet are not diligently studying and learning to be a humble, serving-God-and-others disciple of Jesus, God sees it and will not plague someone else’s life by putting you with them. Those who aren’t learning to serve are devils, plain and simple. You are not ready and will not be till you lay down your own life and die. It’s time to take your own sins into account and cease pointing the finger (Job 19:28). You must trash the “What’s in it for me” motto which is for Satan’s children.

serve-humility-feetDie. Now. Lay down your life today. You’ve made religious excuses long enough. You’ve listened to the devil wolves like Osteen who promised you your best days are yet to come and yet you are an apostate counterfeit heading for hell. They refuse to preach repentance, the first word/command of the original Gospel (Matthew 3:2; 4:17; Acts 3:19, etc.). They lied to you and you listened all because you are not yet real with God (John 3:19-21; 2 Timothy 4:2-4). If you don’t truly repent for real and you marry, you will be personally responsible before the LORD for much destruction – as in how you will be the reason for much hurt and sin in that fabricated marriage. If you choose today to truly go before God and repent, you will, without exception, trash what you’ve learned from the world and begin to allow the constitution of your heart and life to be rewritten with God’s Word. There are people all around us who’ve wasted the best years of their lives living with a prideful, self-serving heart – people who’ve prayed for a godly mate while refusing to be godly themselves.

“Amen! The first step to finding a Godly Man or A Woman is by being one yourself.” Eliset Igat

Trump from a Biblical Perspective

Seeing Trump Through the Eyes of Scripture

trump-pres-unthankful

IF OUR PRAYERS FOR OUR NATION/CITY/STATE DIDN’T MATTER, JEREMIAH 29:7 AND 1 TIMOTHY 2:1-3 WOULD NOT BE IN GOD’S WORD. IT’S NOT OUR PLACE TO PROGNOSTICATE WHEN WE THINK JESUS WILL COME AND HOW END TIME EVENTS WILL PLAY OUT. LET’S LEAVE THAT TO GOD AND SIMPLY DO WHAT HE SAID.

FOLKS, Jesus is coming. For now, we have been granted a short window to serve our LORD in this country …. Trump was a miracle, an answer by God to the prayers and actions of His people, and an ousting of a completely diabolical, satanic, cold-blooded child murdering regime……. We would do well to stop and give Jesus praise….. There’s no hint here that any man or men are our saviors …. get a grip and rightly divide friends. God is good and “EVERY good gift” if straight from Him (James 1:17). Feel free to share this post.

politics vs bbibleSaints, Donald Trump is a SECULAR ruler, not an officer/elder of the body of Christ. So, those qualifications do not apply (1 Timothy 3). That’s the biblical perspective and will help us assimilate things through the eyes of the King of the kingdom of God. Please share and please pray for those in authority saints (1 Tim. 2:1-3). It’s SATAN who wants us out of involvement in government and other aspects of this world. Yes, “come out from among them” AND speak the light of truth into that darkness! “Come out from among them” in 2 Corinthians 6 is speaking of the way we live – we no longer live as the sinful world but we do shine the light of Christ into that darkness! If we don’t no one will! Jesus says that due to Him being in us – we are “the light of the world” and the “salt of the earth.” (Matthew 5:13-16). Preach saints.

Perhaps we should shut up and pray, just as God’s Word instructs us specifically to do “for all that are in authority.”

“I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; 2 For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. 3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;” 1 Timothy 2:1-3

NO, THIS IS NOT A PLEA TO “MAKE THIS WORLD A BETTER PLACE TO LIVE.” THIS IS NOT A CALL TO ESTABLISH GOD’S KINGDOM IN IT’S FULNESS OVER THE EARTH WITHOUT JESUS HERE. HE’S COMING SOON, WE’RE LIVING AND LOOKING FOR HIS SOON RETURN, AND SO IF WE ARE GOING TO WIN SOULS, IT MUST BE NOW! THERE WILL BE NO LOST SOULS IN HEAVEN TO WIN TO JESUS! SELAH.

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

Why Christians Shouldn’t Yoga

yoga

Todd Tomasella: “Yoga means to yoke. Yoking with demons! We take His yoke, it’s easy. His burden is light. Thanks brother!” Angela Alatorre

YOGA is a cheap substitute for the real thing. Yoga can’t forgive your sins or remove the anguish, grief, and shame associated with sin. Jesus is the Prince of peace and without Him there is no peace. Only Jesus can do that! Only Jesus saves. Only Jesus redeems. Only Jesus heals. Only Jesus forgives. Only Jesus cleanses the conscience and grants eternal life!

You are a sinner in need of God’s forgiveness.

God made our bodies to breath automatically. There’s no need not learn how to breathe better. In fact, you may be breathing in demons and becoming demon possessed. The need is for repentance for the forgiveness of sins and to prepare to meet our Maker.

What is Yoga?

Simply put: Yoga means yoking. Yoga is the bringing in of evil spirits from the enemy of all souls via exercise. Exercise is the catch. The Bible tells us that “bodily exercise profiteth little.” There is a “little” profiting to “bodily exercise.” Since most of us don’t get much exercise during our work day, we utilize gyms etc., to get that exercise. In doing so, Satan is capitalizing on this phenomenon – he’s crept in unawares to beguile and possess as many as possible.

Douglas R. Groothuis, Professor of Philosophy at Denver Seminary and a respected specialist on the New Age Movement, warns Christians that yoga is not merely about physical exercise or health. “All forms of yoga involve occult assumptions,” he warns, “even hatha yoga, which is often presented as a merely physical discipline.” While most adherents of yoga avoid the more exotic forms of ritualized sex that are associated with tantric yoga, virtually all forms of yoga involve an emphasis on channeling sexual energy throughout the body as a means of spiritual enlightenment.

Deceitfully Crouched in Innocence

Yoga is just another typical age old deception repackaged.

“And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.” Genesis 3:6

Yoga is like what is called “whidevilste magic” or “good witches.” No such thing as good or godly magic or witches. They are all from the dark side and therefore in opposition to the light of Jesus Christ who is the light of the world (John 8:12). Such deceptive terms are used by “seducing spirits (demons)” to cloak their evil agenda in order to ensnare the gullible.

“The word yoga is problematic. Yoga means ‘to yoke.’ … using the word begs the question, ‘Yoked to whom?’ …the postures and techniques of yoga were designed to be offerings to the millions of Hindu gods. But ultimately, yoga was intended to yoke a person to the so-called ‘Lord of Yoga’ – Sheva, the destroyer. …these realities make yoga, regardless of how it’s packaged, incompatible with Christianity.”

“Yes…Amen! He (Jesus) is our Peace. Jesus said, “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you….” (John 14:27)” Eliset Igat

“AMEN A MILLION TIMES, NO YOGA, PIYO, HOROSCOPE, ENERGIES, MEDITATION, NONE OF THIS…. AMEN AND AMEN.” Paula Brinson

“I meditate on God’s Word and not sitting like that— it looks demonic.” Valencia Hargrave

“So, what you are saying is that a huge portion of those saying they are saved are going to church on Sunday and are like swinging half-dressed from the rafters during the week! And they call that the narrow road!!! Just like the world, in their mind there is no such thing as an abomination because if it fits their fancy it has to be okay. HOWEVER, THE LORD SAYS AND WILL TREAT YOGA, BREATH PRAYERS, CONTEMPLATIVE PRAYER, ALL OF IT AS AN ABOMINATION! His thoughts are not our thoughts, His are much higher. We are not to take on the practices of eastern religion—or any other for that matter. Why? Because it is all Satan’s power, not the Lord’s. Every other religion was begun under the influence of Satan himself to draw men away from Christ, the only one who could save them and give them eternal life. And he, Satan, provides them with all kinds of practices and experiences to keep them on his line— away from the true and living God, the one and only God, the only way to Heaven.” Karen Graves
