Knowledge is Increasing. Your Ministry might need an UPDATE!

This is the Information Age. Like Daniel said people are traveling and knowledge is increasing. Millennials can click on google or YouTube and get ANY information they want. Not only that, GOD is opening seals of understanding in Daniel and Revelation!
If you are in ministry, and you are still teaching Zionism, pre-trib rapture, Greco-Romanist practices, Americanism, Cessationism, White Jesus or anything that has been proven false biblically- you are shooting your ownself in both feet!
I don’t want your sheep! I cannot feed them all! I want you to be able to keep GODS sheep that you are losing!!! I see them in the streets! We all have a part to play!

You can’t build a house of truth on a foundation of lies. Take the time & effort to find & fix any hidden cracks in your foundation, it will be worth it.

INTEGRITY AS AN INVESTMENT

Satan will try to use your woundedness and hurt to get you going his way. But if you keep your INTEGRITY, you can use your suffering to get a double promotion in God’s ways.

Who you are on the inside cannot be taken away from you. Integrity. Character. Discipline. Love. Obedience.
This is your Value💪🏾

How do I turn Suffering into Reigning?

Turning suffering into reigning is not easy by yourself. But with God you can do it easily. When God says it he gives power to do it. “Where the word of a king is, there is power.” (Ecclesiastes 8 )

First forgive, because God forgave you. Then just listen for whatever instruction or act of integrity he tells you to keep. It might not be pain free but it will be powerful.

\in-ˈte-grə-tē\
noun
: the state of being complete or whole

Job 2:9-10
Proverbs 15:4
Job 42:10-12

Every time you Suffer in Righteousness its actually a Promotion.
Suffer to Reign.
Believe in God and shut the devil up!❤😁✌🏾

2 Clues to the Time of the End: Transportation and Information Technology

The Time of the End is here…Here are two clues:

Daniel 12:4

But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.
Yes, this is like the simplest scripture in bible prophecy:
In the time of the end:
1. many shall run to and fro
2. knowledge shall be increased
What are the two biggest innovations in the past 100 years?
1. Transportation: planes, trains, automobiles… people literally “run to and fro” all day long. This scripture was written in a time when people stayed home primarily, and traveled slowly if they ever did. Today millions of engineers make planes, helicopters, trains and cars so that billions of people can “run to and fro.”
2. Information Technology: Publishing, books, internet, phones, websites, wikipedia… “knowledge is increasing” and the transfer of that knowledge is becoming quicker and simpler everyday. You can literally increase your knowledge about anything in the world anytime you want. Researchers, Publishers, and Computer Scientists have made it super easy to spread, increase, and transfer knowledge without worrying about stacks of paper being burned up.
What does this mean?
This is a clue that we are coming to the time of the end. This means that mysteries that Daniel wrote about are being revealed right now.
Be prepared, get close to God, and walk in obedience! Fast weekly, pray daily, live and breathe holy. God will reveal many things to you about the book of Daniel, the entire Word of God and about your life.
Revelation 12:12
12 Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them! Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and of the sea! For the devil has come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.”Transition and God’s Authority is coming. The devil only has a short time… so he’s coming on much stronger with temptation, deception, and violence. But Jesus’s return is coming soon. Get Excited!

The Nazarite Vow and Sports – Rejecting the World’s Wine

The Nazarite Vow and Sports – Rejecting the World’s Wine

disclaimer: I got this message several weeks ago before I was even thinking  about the Superbowl, so don’t necessarily take this as an attack on your Superbowl plans. But it just is what it is. If the shoe fits, take it off!

What is Sports?

Sports are Exercise, Fun, and Games of Physical Strength and Skill. They are harmless, right? Actually they are good for the human body. Bodily exercise profits little, but Godliness is eternal (1 Timothy 4). But we also have to glorify God in our body (1 Corinthians 6).

But, taken too far, what is Sports?

It’s a celebration of human strength. Taken too far, it’s the worship of the human body. Say you’re in a stadium, or a field, what are you watching? You’re watching a bunch of 20 somethings, men at the peak of their strength, playing a physical game of strength and speed and physical skill. Then you have the cheerleaders, dancing, being beautiful and feeding physical lust. Beauty is God given, when taken too far – it becomes lust and adultery.

What is harmless can become idol worship. So you are in a stadium, watching the strength of men and the beauty of women (even in the commercials). So, what is harmless has become the idol worship of the human body, worshipping the strength of men and lusting after the beauty of women – IF taken too far.

 

Who takes it too far?

Who sponsors most of the commercials and cashflow for these sports games? Alcohol companies. What’s the quickest way to take anything too far. What’s the quickest way to lower your inhibitions, lose control of your emotions, speak easier and give your soul out more? – Drinking Alcohol.

Wine is a mocker, strong drink is raging: and whosoever is deceived thereby is not wise. Proverbs 20:1

Drinking alcohol, becoming inebriated, and being filled with wine or strong drink is the quickest way to go too far. Drinking is not a sin, but it is the quickest way to turn something harmless into sin and idol worship by taking it too far.

 

Be filled with God’s Wine by Singing

Ephesians 5:18 Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Spirit. 19 Speak to one another with psalms, hymns and spiritual songs. Sing and make music in your heart to the Lord,

This is why the Nazarite vow involves not drinking wine. Not because wine is a sin, but because wine symbolizes worldly pleasures. Not only does wine symbolize worldly pleasures, but wine and strong drink lowers your inhibitions, and is the quickest way to turn something harmless like sports and beauty into the idol worship of the human bodyworshipping the strength of men and the lust of women.

When you decide to drink wine or strong drink, what is the next step? Where do you drink it, and for what purpose? At home to make you happy? At the bar? At the sports game? At the Club? What are you having pleasure in? What are you worshipping?

 

What is a Nazirite?

The Nazirite vow, literally – means not drinking wine, and letting your hair grow. (Numbers 6, Judges 13, Lamentations 4:7, Amos 2:7,11.) Rejecting the wine symbolizes shunning the world pleasure, letting your hair grow on your head symbolizes giving your strength and glory to God.

The holiness of the Nazarite is not just for ascetic reasons, or to be considered “holier than thou.” Nazarite Holiness leads to spiritual power that brings amazing results. Samson was a Nazarite, John the Baptist was a Nazarite, as was probably Elijah. All of the Nazarite men in the Bible did amazing feats of spiritual strength.

 

Funny (to me) Story: I was recording a verse to a song called “I’m a Nazirite” with my friend Kendra. I had my baby son and my 5 year old neice with me. So my niece was in the room while I was recording my verse, so I had her help with the chorus on the last hook.

So I was telling her what a Nazirite was. “A Nazarite means we don’t live for ourselves, we don’t live for the world, and we don’t live for the devil, we only live our lives for God.” My niece is saved and filled with HG and is very very intelligent – she actually gets things like this even at the age of 5.

She was excited about helping out with the song and couldn’t wait to get home and tell her aunt and her mom. When we were driving home, I asked her to tell me what a Nazarite was. “We don’t live for ourselves, we don’t live for the world, and we don’t live for the devil, we only live for God!”

Even though I’m used to her, I was surprised at how good her memory was. But then she continued. “You know what else Uncle?” “What Kyra?” I’m thinking I only told her 3 things, what else do she have to say. “We don’t live for JEZEBEL!” she said.

I laughed so hard. I hadn’t told her anything about Jezebel, but obviously she had heard me mention Jezebel in my verse, and she added that to the list of things that Nazirites don’t live for.

 

Nazarite Generation

There is a Nazarite Generation coming with the wisdom of my niece! They won’t live for themselves, they won’t live for the world’s pleasures, and they won’t live for the devil, OR Jezebel’s religious and physical idolatry and adultery! They will reject wine and strong drink – naturally and spiritually – and give all their strength and glory to GOD ALONE!

 

So can we play sports? Yes, if you do it for exercise and fun – not idol worship. And if you don’t drink the wine, put clothes on all the women (probably the men, too), and if you give God the glory like Tim Tebow:-)

I like basketball myself, I enjoy playing it and watching it. But I have to fast from it regularly so it never becomes idolatry. I call it the Fave Media Fast. Fasting from TV, websites, sports, video games, or any of your favorite media regulary. Fasting helps break addictions and idolatries, and prevents them too.

 

Quick Story about Tim Tebow – I heard on the radio that they mic’d his helmet during a game, and he was actually singing spiritual songs throughout the whole game. In the midst of all the pressure of the game – he’s filling himself with the Holy Ghost! Now that’s a Nazarite – drinking God’s wine at all times, rejecting the world’s wine, and glorifying God with all of his youthful strength.

Unfortunately Tim has recently been chased by Katy Perry, Kim Kardashian, a Pornography convention, and by Jockey underwear to do a shirtless ad as a sex symbol for his female fans. He has to learn to stay away from the spirit of Jezebel, and stay consistent. Avoid the sex symbol ad money and the strange women. Jezebel is very tricky and seductive – naturally and spiritually. And the trickiest jezebel spirits usually comes after spiritual Kings, not spiritual slackers. I talk very much more in depth about Jezebel 1.0 and Jezebel 2.0 in our book Killing Idols For REVIVAL.

But there is a generation coming like Daniel, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego; they will FAST in King’s Palace of Babylon, and they will refuse to dance to the party music of IDOLATRY, even when it’s played very loud. If you Read Daniel 1 and 2, you will see that they were all teenagers when they did this! This type of generation will have a spiritual power that we haven’t seen yet, and they will prepare the earth for the second coming of Jesus Christ.

Spirituals and Naturals on Fasting | Countdown to The Call Detroit 11-11-11: Day 2 –

Spirituals and Naturals on Fasting

First question – Is fasting a new covenant spiritual practice?

Answer: Yes, now that Jesus is physically not here, his disciples who love the bridegroom will fast. Fasting doesn’t change God, fasting changes Jesus Christ’s disciples that do it. It makes them a new wineskin, opens their soul to believe more and recieve more from God’s Spirit. 

14 Then came to him the disciples of John, saying , Why do we and the Pharisees fast oft, but thy disciples fast not? 15 And Jesus said unto them, Can *the children of the bridechamber mourn , as long as the bridegroom is with them? but the days will come , when the bridegroom shall be taken from them, and then shall they fast . 16 No man putteth a piece of new cloth unto an old garment, for that which is put in to fill it up taketh *from the garment, and the rent is made worse. 17 Neither do men put new wine into old bottles: else the bottles break , and the wine runneth out , and Matthew 9.

 How do we fast?

Answer: Secretly, before God. You don’t have to hide it, and its not a sin if someone finds out that you are fasting. The main point is not to show off or make it obvious, just show it to God. Of course, corporate fasts may have to be publicly announced, since they involve a whole group of people (Joel 2).

16 Moreover when ye fast , be not, as the hypocrites, of a sad countenance: for they disfigure their faces, that they may appear unto men to fast . Verily I say unto you *, They have their reward. 17 But thou, when thou fastest , anoint thine head, and wash thy face; 18 That thou appear not unto men to fast , but unto thy Father which is in secret: and thy Father, which seeth in secret, shall reward thee openly *. Matthew 6

What should we fast for?

Answers: The first reason to fast is Bridegroom love and hunger for God (Matthew 9). The other reasons are to loose the bonds of wickedness, let the oppressed go free, to break wicked spiritual powers, to give to the hungry, to relieve spiritual and economic burdens, and to get guidance and spiritual light in your soul. We do NOT fast for arguments, strife, and debate, and to point fingers at people we don’t agree with. We do NOT fast to get power to wrestle against people, but to wrestle against principalities and powers of oppression that are decieving people and oppressing people(Ephesians 6).

4 Behold, ye fast for strife and debate, and to smite with the fist of wickedness: ye shall not fast as ye do this day, to make your voice to be heard on high. 5 Is it such a fast that I have chosen ? a day for a man to afflict his soul? is it to bow down his head as a bulrush, and to spread sackcloth and ashes under him? wilt thou call this a fast, and an acceptable day to the LORD? 6 Is not this the fast that I have chosen ? to loose the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke? 7 Is it not to deal thy bread to the hungry, and that thou bring the poor that are cast out to thy house? when thou seest the naked, that thou cover him; and that thou hide not thyself from thine own flesh? 8 Then shall thy light break forth as the morning, and thine health shall spring forth speedily: and thy righteousness shall go before thee; the glory of the LORD shall be thy rereward . 9 Then shalt thou call , and the LORD shall answer ; thou shalt cry , and he shall say , Here I am. If thou take away from the midst of thee the yoke, the putting forth of the finger, and speaking vanity; 10 And if thou draw out thy soul to the hungry, and satisfy the afflicted soul; then shall thy light rise in obscurity, and thy darkness be as the noonday: 11 And the LORD shall guide thee continually, and satisfy thy soul in drought, and make fat thy bones: and thou shalt be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters fail not. Isaiah 58

What’s the Best thing to Do while fasting?

Answer: Sit with God, Talk to Him, Sing to Him, Read the Word, Pray for People.

What are some different types of fasts?

Answer: Here are some different fasts, some biblical, and some that I made up, in order from hardest to easiest:

40 day water: No food for 40 days, just water. (Moses, Jesus).

Esther Fast: No food No Water 3 days. This is an extreme fast because its done with no water. Anything longer than this and you might die, so I don’t suggest trying to extend this one.

Lifestyle Fast – 3 day water: No food for 3-21 days. These can be done once a month, to once a quarter, to once a year, depending on your schedule and your desire for God.

Quick Fast: No Food or Water for 24 Hours. I made this one up, its like an Esther fast cut in 1/3rd. You can do this weekly.

Daniel 1 Pulse Fast: Only Eat Fruits & Nuts, Beans & Vegetables, and Water to Drink: (Only plants: no bread, or meat, or sweets). Can be as long as you want it.

Daniel 10 No Meats No Sweets Fast: No meats, No sweets, or pleasant bread. Regular bread is ok. Can be as long as you want it.

Fave Media Fast: This is a fast from your favorite source of entertainment media. Whether it be a certain website, social network, sport show, radio show. I like basketball, but I fasted all basketball related media (websites, video games, tv) for 40 days.

Dragon’s Flood Fast (Revelations 12:15,16): Satan sends a flood of filth from his mouth through entertainment and media  to drown God’s people. The Dragon’s Flood fast is removing your eyes, ears, and mind from all of the wickedness that satan promotes through entertainment and media to drown your spirit (adultery based storylines, foul comedies, talk show hosts with poisonous attitudes, porn/lingerie/swimsuit media, secular music, secular movies). This is a fast I made up, but its based in scripture (2 Corinthians 7:1). I know people that have done it and been delivered from demons, deception, and spiritual ignorance. This is the easiest fast, and should probably be permanent!
