4th Message:How to Rule the Nations and Governments!

A Message from Jesus to Excellent Christians Dealing with a Seducing Spirit of Compromise

(Thyatira) Revelation 2:18-29

Jesus describes Himself to this Church:

“He that says these things is:

1.The SON of GODI’m GOD, not just a man. I’m on another level, different, and separate. My ways and thoughts and agenda is different than man’s.

2.With EYES like FLAMES of FIRE… My eyes are active and full of energy. Flames don’t stand still; they are active, powerful, and energetic. That’s the way I see and look at my Church.

3.With FEET like fine BRASS… Brass is heavy and solid. Jesus is not going anywhere! I will stand my ground in my Church, unmoveable and steadfast. Anything that is against me will not push me out, I will push it out!

Jesus is intimately acquainted with and understands this group of Christians’:

1.Works – They had good works, which is the first thing Jesus looks at with His Churches.

2.Charity – They had Charity, which is the greatest thing, and bond of maturity and perfection.

3.Service – They served well.

4.Faith – They were strong in faith, which is precious to God. They weren’t weak in faith.

5.Patience – They also were patient and longsuffering.

6.Works – the last works are more than the first works.

So according to Jesus, this is a very good and excellent Church. Not only did they do good works, they were commended twice for their works, and the last was better than the first. So they were getting better and better! They “had it going on.”

PROBLEMS:

Even with all that excellence and good works, Jesus has a few things AGAINST this group of Christians because they ALLOW Jezebel, a false prophetess to teach and seduce HIS servants to:

1.Commit fornication

2.Eat food (harmless things) sacrificed to idols.

Jesus keeps having BEEF with the same issues: fornication & idolatry. Or, better yet: “allowing the teaching and promoting” of fornication & idolatry.

He hates the doctrine of Balaam which puts a stumbling block and tricks people into fornication & idolatry.

He hates the Nicolaitan doctrine that conquers and corrupts people into idolatry and fornication.

Now He hates the allowing of Jezebel to teach and seduces His servants into fornication and idolatry with the world.

(See 3 Main Doctrines that Jesus Hates).

Why does JESUS HATE fornication and idolatry so much? Why does He keep emphasizing these things? Fornication is sexual activity outside of marriage. Idolatry is spiritual adultery. Adultery is a sexual relationship outside of your marriage. Spiritually, it’s anything you put before your relationship with God. THIS IS A RELATIONSHIP ISSUE! What is your relationship with God?

Realize that Jesus’s greatest relationship with His Church is that of a Bridegroom to a Bride!

THE REAL ISSUE

If your fiance’ or betrothed spouse was having sex with someone else, how would you feel?

Well, that’s how fornication and spiritual adultery (idolatry) makes JESUS feel. Jesus loves you and He wants you exclusively. He doesn’t want to marry a prostitute/whore. He forgives prostitutes and spiritual whores like we were, then asks us to love Him exclusively.

Spiritually, Jesus wants us to be faithful to Him as a spouse, not “leaving our first love” (like the Ephesus Church in the 1st Message), or allowing fornication and adultery (like Pergamos in the 3rd Message, and like this Thyatira Church). It all comes back to JESUS’s PASSIONATE LOVE AND DESIRE FOR YOUR SOUL. He LIKES YOU!

Back to the 4th Message:

REPERCUSSIONS

“I gave her (Jezebel) space to repent of her fornication, but she wouldn’t.” God gives compromising teachers in the Church time, space and chances to turn around and do something different. Evidently this false prophetess is really rebellious.

1.“I will cast her into a bed, and those that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, unless they repent of their deeds.” Jesus will put Jezebel and other adulterers with her into much trouble. But he still is merciful and gives them time to change.

2.I will kill her children with death.” Children born by her will die. Those spiritual “babies” that the Church allows her to teach will be killed, by Jesus.

3.All the Churches will know that I am He who searches the reins (thoughts & purposes of the soul) and hearts, and I will reward everyone for their works.” This is where you see Jesus’ initial self-description come back. “When they see what I do to compromisers, all the Churches will know that my flaming fiery eyes can see everything inside their hearts, and that I don’t back down from MY purposes. You will reap what you sow.”

Jesus is a BOSS.

Jesus doesn’t just look at appearances… (whether you are in Church or not and how your life appears on the outside). He sees your heart! Be faithful to Him only!

AS FOR THE REST OF YOU:

To the rest of you who are NOT running with Jezebel, and aren’t teaching the compromising doctrine (which is from Satan)… You all just keep doing what you are doing until I come back. You all are doing very excellently – just keep up the good works!

PROMISES:

If you excellent Christians: ignore the seductions of Jezebel – who tries to preach & prophesy you into relationships with idols, false gods, and sexual activity outside of marriage… AND you keep up the good works until the END:

1.I will give you POWER OVER NATIONS, You will rule them with a rod of Iron and will break them like clay pots.”That means that when Jesus comes back to the earth, He will set you in Authority over a country, or a few countries & nations. You will rule them, and He will have you break down former the government systems and infrastructures… and they will have to SUBMIT to Jesus through YOU!

2.And I will give Him the MORNING STAR. You will get authority over a star that is like the sun. An abundance of light, power, and energy is in it.

To any excellent Christians with political ambitions: Jesus can give you Political power and Power over light & energy. All you have to do is be excellent, and overcome the compromising spirit of Jezebel.

If you have a spiritual ear to hear, please pay attention to the deeper meanings that the Spirit of God is trying to get across to many different groups of Christians.

We all know that only Jesus can solve the biggest problems of the world right now (economic, oil, energy, war). Men may try to get together and accomplish progress. Progress is always good – but as long as mankind is sinful by nature, man will mess things up. That’s why Jesus is coming soon, literally and physically! He can give you the authority over NATIONS. Do you want to be on Jesus’ International Dominion team? Overcome the spiritual compromises of Jezebel!

I Just LOOOVE being Judgmental :-D

I Just LOOOVE being Judgmental 😀

So last week I was at Saks (too many percents off sale) and my wife picked out this sweet shirt for me. I tried it on, and I Judged the sleeves it to be to short for my arms. So we got the blue one instead. Then there was one purple argyle sweater; I Judged it to be ugly on me. Now the green striped one; I Judged it to look nice! I love being Judgmental! Now I have this nice shirt and sweater!-)

Most of the time at lunch instead of eating food I Judge too be too greasy or too expensive, I just get a $5 Tuna on honey oat Sub from Subways (eat fresh:-), or a $5 chicken Shawarma from LaPita! I Judge them to be healthier, tastier, and cheaper! Being Judgmental keeps me healthy and saving money that I don’t need to be spending. It’s awesome!

As a dj, most of what I do is Judgmental. I have to choose which songs are hot or not, which songs have a message that I want to promote, and which ones are filled with curses and error that I won’t play. If I wasn’t Judgmental, I would be like all the wicked deejays who spin and promote sinful, curse-filled, prideful, mind-degrading music, and I would be in danger of God’s final Judgment.

Yes, God will Judge all humans.

27: And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the Judgment:

Hebrews 9

So I practice being judgmental in order to avoid being judged by Him

31: For if we would Judge ourselves, we should not be Judged. 1 Corinthians 11

Jesus said not to pass final judgment (that’s God’s job), or do unrighteous judgment.

1: Judge not, that ye be not Judged.
2: For with what Judgment ye Judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.
3: And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? Matthew 7

But He didn’t say we couldn’t Judge at all – Jesus said to Judge righteous Judgment:

Judge not according to the appearance, but Judge righteous Judgment. John 7:24

Is Judgement something I have to be quiet about? No. I also talk about Judgment.

30: The mouth of the righteous speaketh wisdom, and his tongue talketh of Judgment. Psalms 37

13: With my lips have I declared all the Judgments of thy mouth. Psalms 119

Paul reasoned with people of righteousness, temperance, and Judgement to come.

And as he reasoned of righteousness, temperance, and Judgment to come, Felix trembled, and answered, Go thy way for this time; when I have a convenient season, I will call for thee. Acts 24:25

We also grow from baby Christians to mature Christians by exercising our Judgment. We go from Milk to Meat.

13: For every one that useth milk is unskillful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe.
14: But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil. Hebrews 5

The spirit of the Lord Judges for the poor and for those who can’t defend themselves, like:

unborn babies/ the environment/ oppressed people / slaves / the poor / those being taken advantage of / widows/ children/ humpback whales/ persecuted Christians / redwood forests/ unpaid preachers/ insert your righteous cause here.

But with righteousness shall he Judge the poor, and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth: and he shall smite the earth with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked. Isaiah 11:4

Righteous men speak up for them also.

Open thy mouth, Judge righteously, and plead the cause of the Poor and needy. Proverbs 31:9

We also excercise righteous Judgement for widows and the fatherless children. (Psalms).

1: Give the king thy Judgments, O God, and thy righteousness unto the king’s son.
2: He shall Judge thy people with righteousness, and thy poor with Judgment.
3: The mountains shall bring peace to the people, and the little hills, by righteousness.
4: He shall Judge the poor of the people, he shall save the children of the needy, and shall break in pieces the oppressor. Psalms 72

Learn to do well; seek Judgment, relieve the oppressed, Judge the fatherless, plead for the widow. Isaiah 1:17

Did you ever wonder: What are the most important themes in the Word of God? If I’m only going to study 3 things about God, what should I study? Well, Jesus already told us:

23: Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law: Judgment, Mercy, and Faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone. Matthew 23

So the MOST IMPORTANT, heaviest, weightiest parts of the Word of God are: Judgment, Mercy, and Faith. All THRE are the most important, not just one or two. These are the most important things to understand about Jesus and the Word of God. Who said that? Not me, but Jesus himself.

I remember one time recently that I wasn’t Judgmental enough. My sister and I did business with some people that said they were Christians, so we trusted them. Plus, the business worked. If it works, do it, right? That’s the American way. Wrong. We didn’t Judge them based on the truth, and we didn’t test their spirits. We didn’t want to be Judgmental.

Now the business is over, and one of the members stole a lot of money. (Not ours… Thank God). But it could have been ours. There were people that knew better, that didn’t say anything to us; probably because they didn’t want to appear “Judgmental.”

Now I LOOOVE being Judgmental! I realize that using good Judgment based on Gods Word and Spirit is what has kept me from a lot of bad decisions my whole entire life.

I remember Judging sisters to be my sister instead of assuming that every attractive female was my potential wife to date (1 Timothy 5:2). Then when God DID bring me my custom tailored wife, my Judgment was good enough to recognize her! Now we are more blessed than ever – all because we both are Judgmental.

God also tells us to test (Judge) the spirits, and see whether they be of God. For more on how to test spirits- see this article:

https://sospression.wordpress.com/2008/11/10/beloved-believe-not-every-spirit-test-the-spirits-to-see-if-they-are-from-god/

What about Love? How does that relate to judgment?

15: Hate the evil, and love the good, and establish judgment in the gate: it may be that the LORD God of hosts will be gracious unto the remnant of Joseph. Amos 5

Notice how the love of good and hatred of evil is related to good judgment.

10: Ye that love the LORD, hate evil: he preserveth the souls of his saints; he delivereth them out of the hand of the wicked. Psalms 97

People that love the Lord should hate things that are evil.

Let your love be without dissimulation (hypocrisy), abhor what is evil, love what is good. Romans 12:19

So guess what this means: People that claim to have Love, but call you a hypocrite for abhorring what is evil and loving what is good… THEY are actually the hypocrites, according to Romans 12:9. They have dissimulation in their love (hypocritical love). Their love is fake, because they don’t hate evil. Loving good and hating evil are two sides of the SAME coin.

I try to keep my love real… which is why I just LOOOVE being Judgemental:-) If you want to Judge righteously and live a good life, I suggest you study the Word of God, and ignore the word of man.

So what am I Judgmental of:

myself

my heart

my actions

the food I eat

the clothes I buy

what I do

the choices I make

the political positions I support

the causes I push

the ideas I promote

where I go

what I read

what I watch

what I listen to

who I follow

And if you don’t like what I Judge… Then why you Judging me for my Judgments? !-)

Kingdom people: Don’t be afraid to hate what is evil, and love what is good, and don’t let anybody intimidate you or shut you up. Your free speech is not only given to you by the US Constitution, but by your Sonship in the Kingdom of God!

Here is more encouragement for you:

21: Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.
22: And of some have compassion, making a difference:
23: And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh. Jude 1

So God says that sometimes you have save people using compassion and making a difference… And sometimes you have to use fear and hatred. Who said that one… me? No. God did. Be led by the spirit. Let’s go from Milk to Meat saints.

To those of you who wonder where you will stand in God’s Final Judgment:

If you can admit that you have made bad Judgments in life… It’s not too late for you. Jesus dying on the Cross was actually Him taking God’s Judgment FOR you. If you believe in Him for that, He will be your SUBSTITUTE Punishment, and you can be righteous in God’s righteousness. God forgives people that confess and turn away from their sin. Then, you’ll pass God’s test on that final Judgment day. That’s called Mercy!

27: And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:
28: So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.

Hebrews 9

Just be careful to be very Judgmental in all of your actions from now on. Ask God what to do. “Go and sin no more!” -Jesus

Forever Will I Tell, In 3 Hours Christ Suffered More Than ANY Sinner EVER Will in Hell

Forever Will I Tell, In 3 Hours Christ Suffered More Than ANY Sinner EVER Will in Hell

This is an awesome line by Timothy Brindle that was repeated as a chorus on Shai Linne’s song “The Cross (3 Hours).” It really sticks with me every time I hear it. As I was meditating on this all day today, I started to wonder… did Christ really suffer MORE than a sinner will in an ETERNITY of burning, weeping, gnashing of teeth, being eaten by worms, not being able to see light or have a physical frame of reference to balance himself (falling forever)?

Was Jesus’ beating, ridiculing, nail-piercing, blood-dripping, asphyxiating, lung-crushing death on the cross actually MORE than an eternity in Hell? Or was that just an exaggeration to get the point across? I mean, He only suffered for a few hours, and hell was only in hell a couple of days right? After that He rose from the dead, and everything was all good. How is that MORE than an eternity of suffering in Hell?

But then I thought about the woman who gave all she had vs. the rich man who gave out of his abundance.

A poor woman gives $10 and that was all she had. A rich man has millions from a Government bailout, and he gives you $10 bucks. Who gives more? Well they both gave ten bucks, but the poor woman sacrificed more because she gave all she had, from nothing.

Same thing with Jesus: He actually did NOTHING wrong, He was sinless, but He was PUNISHED anyway. That is INFINITELY More Sacrificial than an ETERNITY of suffering for the things you DID do wrong, even if you only did a few things wrong.

That’s why He’s the KING now. Because He Gave the MOST, Loved the MOST, Invested the MOST, and Suffered the MOST. That’s why you need to be down with the KING to be saved from Hell anyway. No other false god did what He did. Nobody else Gave that much.

Many people died on the Roman cross, on the American electric chair, in wars, or whatever. But nobody has died after a whole life of sinless perfection. That’s why Jesus is the One with the spiritual Power and Authority.

Here’s another analogy for people who learned Math in College. Let’s take the Ratio of Punishment over Guilt, and call it Sacrifice.

100 / 0 = UNDEFINED.

1 BILLION and counting / .002 = INFINITE

So Jesus sacrifice and suffering for being sinless is UNDEFINABLY MORE than an INFINITY in Hell for the tiny sin you did.

That’s why we need to ask Him to allow you into His Kingdom. He’s the ONLY Way to Spiritual Justification and Guiltlessness.

So… (Cueing the Music.. wiki wicki…)

“Forever Will I Tell, In 3 Hours Christ Suffered More Than ANY Sinner Ever Will in Hell.”

3rd Message from Jesus – How to Have a Secret Identity and Intimacy with God!

3rd Message: How to Have a Secret Identity & Intimacy with God!

A Message from Jesus to Faithful Christians in a Satanic city.

Pergamos (Revelation 2:12-18)

Jesus describes himself to this Church:

1. [I am] He that has a sharp sword with two-edges. Jesus is describing the power of His Word to cut and destroy lies, and to pierce hard hearts with the truth. The sword can stand for sharp discernment.

For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. Hebrews 4:12

Jesus is intimately acquainted with:

1. Their Works. Are you noticing that the FIRST thing Jesus knows every Church by is their works? In Ephesians 2 God says that we are not saved by works; we are saved by grace. But that same grace gives power to do works, and God also says in Ephesians 2 that we are created in Christ to do good works. Your works are not a requirement to be saved, but they are very important to Jesus once you are saved and filled with His grace.

2. He knows where they dwell, where Satan’s seat is. God knows the battles and troubles and opposition you face. Notice He called it Satan’s seat, not Satan’s throne; because Satan is NOT a King!

3. I know that you hold fast my name. They hold on to the authority and character of Jesus. They didn’t just know the word “Jesus.” They held on to who Jesus was and the power that He represented.

4. I know you have not denied my faith. They still believed in Jesus.

5. Even in the times where Antipas my faithful martyr was killed among you, where Satan dwells. Jesus knew that they held on to him even when people were dying for their faith. Notice how affectionately Jesus speaks of His faithful martyr. A martyr is someone who dies for a cause unjustly.

PROBLEMS:

Jesus has a few things against this group of Christians that are being faithful in a Satanic city.

They have there them that hold the doctrine of Balaam (see 3 Main Doctrines that Jesus Hates).

The Doctrine of Balaam is to set a stumbling block in front of God’s people.

1. To eat food (a harmless thing) that has been sacrificed to idols.

2. Commit fornication.

They also have them that hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitans which Jesus HATES.

Notice that Jesus says “So hast thou also them that hold the teaching of the Nicolaitans.” Meaning, the two doctrines are related. As I explained in “3 Main Doctrines that Jesus Hates”, the doctrine of the Nicolaitans is related to the doctrine (teaching) of Balaam.

The teaching of Balaam uses trickery, while the teaching of the Nicolaitans uses force and coercion. They both have the same goal. The goal is to get you into fornication, and into idolatry through something that seems harmless (food). As I explained in the 3 Main Doctrines that Jesus Hates,” entertainment is the new “feast” of our culture, and a lot of idolatry and fornication is pushed through entertainment.

Music is harmless, but once an artist/writer decides to make it a “sacrifice” to his pride, his lust, adultery, alcohol, etc… it becomes a stumbling block. Movies can be harmless, but once the writer decides to use it to glorify lust, fornication, witchcraft, theft, etc… it becomes a stumbling block.

Fornication is sex outside of marriage, and is also used in a spiritual sense for unfaithfulness to the Truth of God.

Jesus HATES compromising teaching that makes these things seem “okay.”

Random thought: Why does the halftime show of every high school, college, or professional sports game remind me of Herod’s daughter dancing to get John the Baptist’s head cut off? That’s Jezebel, the other doctrine that Jesus hates… we’ll get to that in one of the next messages.

Instruction:

Repent! Don’t allow the Balaams or the Nicolaitans to teach compromise! Even with all the good works you do, you need to repent from allowing people to teach compromise in your midst. Notice how Jesus wants the Church to be responsible for everything that goes on in it. He didn’t just want them to stop it personally. He wanted them to stop allowing it within their church!

OR ELSE

I will come to you quickly, and fight against you them with the sword of my mouth. JESUS IS NOT PLAYING. There will be consequences and repercussions. If you don’t rebuke the compromiser, I will come personally and fight with them. Jesus will use that same two-edged sword to fight against His own people if He has to. Wow.

If Jesus is fighting you – you lose. Jesus threatens to cut them to pieces with His Word. It sounds drastic, but I’m not making this up, go read it!

If you have an ear to hear, please pay attention to the deeper meanings of what the Spirit is saying to many different Churches!

PROMISE

IF you overcome (by not allowing anyone to teach the compromise of the Balaam stumbling blocks, or the Nicolaitans to make people submit to idolatry & fornication), you will get:

1. Hidden Manna to Eat. Secret food from God, it could be new revelation from God’s Word.

2. A White Stone with a new and secret name. A new identity/authority with God that only you and God know about. WOW. Talk about intimacy.

What great prizes for people that overcome this specific problem! You will get secret revelation between you and God, AND a secret identity and intimacy between you and God, that no one else knows!

So if you live in a city where Satan dwells, and there is a lot of demonic activity… a filthy, crime-ridden, sin-filled city… Stay faithful and DON’T allow compromise. Don’t let anyone teach you anything that will tolerate sexual or spiritual compromise. Don’t allow people to teach that harmless things which have been sacrificed to idols are still okay to eat.

If you do this, you will not only be a member of the kingdom of heaven; On top of that you will get a very special and intimate Hidden Manna to eat with God, and God will give you a new secret name on a White Stone.

This is for people with Spiritual eyesight and Spiritual ears: Do you want it? Do you believe it? If you do, then do what it takes to overcome.

BELOVED, Believe NOT Every spirit, TEST the spirits to SEE if they are from GOD

BELOVED, Believe NOT Every spirit, TEST the spirits to SEE if they are from GOD

What is a spirit? How can we see it or test it? This is very important to know with all of the deception going on in the world today. From Business, to Politics, to Economics, to Movies, to Music, to Religion: IT SEEMS LIKE EVERYONE IS LYING! I’ll show you some examples later.

In this message we WILL connect spiritual things to natural things, via the Authority of the Messiah Jesus, who was sent from God to earth to TAKE Over natural flesh.

We are going to go through a few scriptures in 1st John 4, and a few others.

1 John 4

4:1

Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.

This is my point. The reason God woke me up at 3am to write this is not just because of a superfood that has me super energized and thinking clearly. That’s a natural reason. But there is also spiritual reason. Look at that first Word: BELOVED. If you are reading this that means God LOVES You. You are HIS, and he wants to protect you from the spirit of deception that is all over the world ruining things. You can be HIS. God can own you in His Love.

What do you think of when you see the word spirit? Is it an invisible goblin? Ooooooooooeew! Is it a clear white friendly Ghost? Ahhhhhhh, so friendly:-) Yes a spirit can be angels or demons, but they are NOT goblins or friendly ghosts. Let’s look at the word spirit:

pneuma (Greek):

A spirit can be:

God.

Angel

Demon

A human spirit that makes the body alive.

Thought structures, philosophies that fill up the soul.

Dispositions, influences that govern the soul.

A movement of air; Wind.

Breath of the Nostrils or Mouth.

Jesus said: My Words are Spirit, and they are life (John 6). The spirit is also represented as Wind or Breath all over the Bible. There are winds of the spirit, winds of doctrine, literal breath coming out of your mouth through words and speeches. If you have no breath (spirit), you are not alive. Even in today’s culture we see winds of CHANGE. They are blowing in America and all over the world right now! These are spirits. They can be represented as words and philosophies that govern and have major INFLUENCE over the souls of people.

This does Not intellectualize the Spiritual realm. It explains it and BRINGS CLARITY to it: Every demon has a specific set of thoughts, ideas, messages, influences that it has been assigned to spread, propagate, and give to you. GOD’S SPIRIT HAS A MESSAGE TOO.

What is that message?

1 John

4:2

Hereby * * know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God:

“Jesus Christ is come in flesh.” Wohoo! There it is. If you can say that once, you’ll be ok forever:-) Right…? Please…? WRONG.

Let’s look at that word confesseth:

 

Homologeo (active, present tense):

  1. to say the same thing as another, i.e. to agree with, assent
  2. to concede
    1. not to refuse, to promise
    2. not to deny
  3. to profess
  4. to praise, celebrate

The word “confesses” is not “confessed.” It is not past tense, it is present tense active. It means to continually say, AGREE, openly Admit, Declare CONSISTENTLY and obviously, PROFESS (declare), and Praise in Celebration of.

Professional lawyers can profess a lot about the law because they study the words and spirit of the law. Professional engineers openly declare engineering concepts. Marxist professors profess the spirit (ideas, words, philosophies) of Karl Marx in their classrooms. Professional salespeople can openly declare and tell you a lot about selling something. Botany professors talk about their experiments with physical plants and scientific tests… unless they are professors of Darwin, in which case they suddenly switch to professing philosophies of the origin of the universe… which are un-testable, because they weren’t there to test it, and they can’t recreate the scenario! So instead they invoke the spirits (ideas, philosophies, words, demons, influences) propagated by Charles Darwin.

So you can profess natural things, and you can profess spiritual things. You also can CONFESS natural things, and CONFESS spiritual things.

1 John

4:3

And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.

So to test the spirits, we have to know what that ideology, influence, wind, breath of the mouth in speech, continually confesses.

If it is of GOD, it confesses:

 

Jesus Christ (Yeshuah Maschiach [Hebrew], the sent Messiah from God) IS Come, in FLESH, As a Human. Jesus was a regular name… there were many people named Jesus. But there is only one that fulfilled the prophecies of God’s Word. There were many imitating messengers, but only ONE was Resurrected from the Dead with evidence from witnesses that has not died down yet. Only one is FROM God, the Anointed Messiah sent from God, a SPIRIT to SOLVE ALL OF THE WORLDS NATURAL PROBLEMS, directly and literally, as a human, in NATURAL flesh.

He’s not a God that we don’t know.

He’s not a man that’s not really God.

This ONE is fully GOD and FULLY Man. He is natural, and spiritual… like us, except He is God directly. That He is Messiah means that He came from God to Solve all the Worlds Problems. The SPIRITUAL and the NATURAL has come together. The Spiritual is in CONTROL of the Natural, even now. Emmanuel means GOD is Here, not separated from us.

Some people want to put God “over there.” He’s God, but He doesn’t do anything here. We can’t find out anything from him. He’s not in charge. He’s spiritual, not natural. Don’t bring that “spiritual stuff” into the natural. It’s too super-spiritual. We’re over here solving the problems of the world by ourselves. God isn’t going to do that directly. He’s not going to help us. We have our own ideas, that originated from….? But anyway, God’s not in charge of us. We’re having fun. We do our own thing, and make our own decisions. I separate my religion and my spiritual life from everything else. Jesus is Spirit, not flesh. OR, Jesus was a really good person and great example, but He’s not in Charge. He’s flesh, not Spirit from God. Those are spirits, words, ideas, winds, and speeches of antichrist. That means they will always end up opposed to, and against Christ.

Even some churches and religions have separated from the power of God to change things: Jesus was a really great example! Let’s do what He would do (IF he were here, but Darwin’s spirit told us He really isn’t), by ourselves… because we’re smart! They preach politics, philosophy, culture, but without the authority of Christ. If you are of God, you consistently declare that Jesus was SENT from God to solve the world’s natural and spiritual problems DIRECTLY. These can be Sin problems, spiritual problems, social justice problems, economic problems, natural problems, engineering problems and other problems. God is ALWAYS involved.

Let me give you some simple examples so you don’t think I’m crazy:

<!–[if !supportLists]–>-<!–[endif]–>God GIVES the spirit of wisdom and talents in art, design, engineering, education, business, creativity, music, expression, science, etc. (Humans use God’s wisdom but ignore God spiritually, polluting all of their expressions and creations with sin and lust and pride).

A person in these fields that was of the spirit of God would honor God in their creations, not necessarily by stamping Jesus on every automobile, song, book, or experiment… but by honoring God as the creator and giver of talent, and refusing to pollute their creations with sin, lust, or pride. They would acknowledge that God is in control through the person of Jesus, connecting spiritual with natural.

<!–[if !supportLists]–>-<!–[endif]–>God CREATES the earth and places all the food and health we need in every green herb and natural food. (Humans pollute the earth through sin and corruption, destroy and poison plants, and create drugs with which to control people spiritually and economically by sorcery and witchcraft “pharmakeia”).

A person in this area that was of the spirit of God would honor God’s creation by not destroying it purposefully with pollution, or poisoning people… but honoring God’s creation and giving people Godly solutions. This connects spiritual with natural, ultimately honoring Jesus the Messiah.

<!–[if !supportLists]–>-<!–[endif]–>God TEACHES righteous business and governmental principles which limit the authority of individual man and submit Him to the authority of the Word of God and principles of Godly character. (Humans corrupt and twist God’s teachings, take control, conquer, BUY the souls of all men & women, use war, genocide, slavery, and debt to take undue power and authority over people, countries, and continents).

A person in this area who was of the spirit of God would honor God’s principles and refuse to overstep their authority over other humans, knowing that ultimately God is in control through the person of Jesus the Messiah.

Every spirit (ideology, philosophy, set of influences, angel, wind of change, speeches and doctrines) that consistently and presently declares, says, and agrees that Yeshua of Nazareth the Biblical King of Jerusalem, the Sent ONE from God the Creator to Solve the World’s problems IS COME in a physical body, combining spiritual with natural, NOW and always, is from GOD the Creator of Heaven and Earth.

Every spirit (ideology, philosophy, set of influences, demon, wind of change, speeches and doctrines) that does not do THAT is NOT from God. Eventually, over the course of time they will prove themselves to be spirits that are against Jesus the Messiah.

Spirits are invisible to the natural eye, but they don’t hide. If you have a special gift, you can see them. But remember, they always manifest themselves through words, breath, and speeches. They always confess.

 

There is a spirit of delusion out here that is smarter than anyone. If they cannot admit that Gods thoughts trump theirs, and exalt Gods spiritual authority thru Jesus connected to their natural actions… They will eventually deceive a lot of people. 2nd Thessalonians 2 also talks about the falling away from truth, the antichrist, and the spirit (ideas, philosophies, speeches, winds) that are against christ.

 

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

10: And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
11: And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
12: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

2 Thessalonians 2

 

Notice the one who is sending and allowing the spirit of delusion to deceive many people: God. Why? To manifest who is in love with truth and who isn’t. This is why you have to love the truth more than you love your life. This is not about intelligence; because a high IQ doesn’t prevent deception. This is about character, integrity, and love for the truth.

 

This is a time when American “pragmatism” will fail. It doesn’t matter if “it works.” If it’s not based on truth it will fail. Period. How do you see in the dark? You shine a light, and see what can reflect the light back to you. Truth reflects truth and confesses Jesus as KING over all!


You are of God, children of God. You have overcome spirits that are against Christ, because God overcame them. God’s Spirit is GREATER and FAR MORE Powerful. The Spirit of TRUTH trumps the Spirit of Error. People can only speak what they know. If they study the world’s music, ideas, philosophies, books, media, and movies, then that’s all they know! They talk to each other and about what they know. What do you expect? (1 John 4:6).

WE are of God. If they know God, they hear, understand, and listen to the words, ideas, doctrines, that WE talk about. If they don’t hear or know GOD’s Spirit, they don’t hear us… they contradict us, belittle us, and fight with us. THAT’S how we can tell the spirit of TRUTH from the spirit of ERROR.

TEST THE SPIRITS.

TEST THE WINDS OF CHANGE.

TEST THE SPEECHES.

TEST THE LYRICS.

TEST THE MOVIE SCRIPT.

TEST THE IDEAS AND THE PHILOSOPHIES.

1 John

4:7

Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.

4:8

He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.

4:9

In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.

4:10

Herein * * is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.

GOD’S Love brings us TOGETHER around JESUS’s sacrifice for our sins. NOT around the ideas of and spirits of men.

2nd Message:How to Get the Crown of Life Forever!

A Message from Jesus to the Christians that Are Going Through Suffering

Smyrna (Revelation 2:8-11)

Jesus describes Himself:

1. The first and the last – Jesus lets them know He has original power and final power. The authorities that persecute them do NOT have final say.

2. Which was dead, and is alive – Jesus calms their fear of death by reminding them that “I was dead, and I’m alive.” If they follow him death won’t hurt them either.

 

Why does Jesus describe Himself in this particular way to this group of Christians? We will see later in the message why- they are being persecuted.

 

Jesus knows, sees, and is intimately acquainted with:

1. Their works. They did good works.

2. Tribulation. They are suffering troubling circumstances.

3. Poverty. They are poor in natural things (but Jesus points out that they are rich spiritually). If Jesus says you are rich, YOU ARE RICH!

4. He knows they are bothered by other people say that they are followers of God, but are actually a group of satan-followers that speak evil of God.

 

PROBLEM:

NO PROBLEM. Jesus has NO PROBLEM with the Christians that are suffering. In fact, they are poor, but Jesus calls them rich. He has NOTHING AGAINST the Suffering Christian.

 

Instruction:

  1. Don’t be afraid of those things that you suffer.
  2. The devil will throw some of you into prison, you will be tried 10 and have tribulation days.
  3. Be faithful unto death.

 

PROMISE

  1. If you are faithful unto death, then I will give you the crown of life.
  2. If you overcome (stay faithful through your suffering). You will not be hurt at all by the 2nd death.

 

HEAR! Pay attention to the deeper meanings of what the Spirit of GOD is saying to many groups of Christians.

 

If you suffer and stay faithful until your first death, you will not only be a member of the Kingdom of heaven, but you will ALSO not be hurt AT ALL by the second death (Judgement Day).

 

I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. 5 But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection. 6 Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.

Revelation 20:4-6

 

You will receive a Crown of Life, and reign with Christ 1000 years. You will not be hurt at all by the final judgment. Suffering for God gives you extra mercy on Judgment Day! Not only are you in the Book of Life, but the 2nd death will not affect you, at all. This is awesome! Your life will be judged as perfect. (Otherwise, God’s judgment would affect you.) This is powerful.

 

This message from Jesus is unique because it is available to everybody:

 

If we suffer, we shall also reign with him: if we deny him, he also will deny us. 2 Timothy 2:12

 

When we see through Jesus’ eyes, we see:

riches in spite of poverty,

power after suffering,

life after death,

and faith in God in the middle of those that blaspheme.

 

You may not be in a time and place where you get punished by the government for worshipping Jesus in Spirit and Truth (while false blasphemous religion gets excused)…

BUT we all will get a chance go through suffering for the name of Jesus.

 

It could be people looking down on you, or talking about you for living holy. It could be making a lot less money than you could if you sold an evil product, or cheated at work. You know it’s a lot easier to make money if you work with evil products – they have the largest profit margins (drugs, debt, prostitution, drunkenness, porn, sinful entertainment).

 

Even though God gives deliverance and prosperity, all true Christians that follow Jesus will suffer in some way (2 Timothy 3:12). This is a blessing in disguise, to test your spiritual eyesight. If you embrace this suffering, it will be your CROWN of LIFE! Embrace suffering for Jesus. Don’t suffer for doing wrong, then blame the devil. Suffer for doing right.
