Jezebel Exposed (in the Church) | Countdown to The Call Detroit 11-11-11: Day 38 –

Jezebel Exposed

Jesus Christ is marching and he’s Chopping Off Heads. Every thing that exalts itself above the knowledge of Christ is about to be dethroned (2 Cor 10).  Just like Jehu, he’s about to get rid of Jezebel. He’s already been doing it, we just need to have an ear to hear and eyes to see what He’s doing. The Old Covenant version of Jezebel is the one that kills true messengers of God, and corrupts leaders. The New Covenant version (after she killed John the Baptist) version of Jezebel – her strategy is a little different.

I have blogged about Jezebel in the past, (3 Main Doctrines That Jesus Hates) as well as about this exact passage in Revelations 2 (How To Rule Nations and Governments).  But in the past couple of years I have gotten a lot more understanding on Revelations 2. I explain a lot more of this through dream interpretations, testimonies, and scriptural revalations in my upcoming book, (Killing Idols For REVIVAL) but let’s take a quick look at Jesus explaining Jezebel’s new covenant strategies. Then we’ll look at how it relates to Detroit and Detroit’s influence on the nations of the earth.

Revelations 2

18 And unto the angel of the church in Thyatira write ; These things saith the Son of God, who hath his eyes like unto a flame of fire, and his feet are like fine brass;

Jesus’ eyes are like fire. They consume and penetrate and burn through us. They see right through our hearts.

His feet are like brass. He’s steady, solid, and He’s the King, and He’s not going anywhere.

19 I know thy works, and charity, and service, and faith, and thy patience, and thy works; and the last to be more than the first.

Jesus is pleased with the Church, they work hard, they have love, service, faith… and their works keep growing. Jesus is pleased with everything except for a few things thing. It tolerates Jezebel.

20 Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication , and to eat things sacrificed unto idols.

In the New Covenant Jezebel calls herself a prophetess. She is tolerated by the Church, they let her teach God’s servants how to commit fornication and eat food sacrificed to idols. What’s the best way to teach? By example.

21 And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not. 22 Behold , I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds. 23 And I will kill her children with death; and all the churches shall know that I am he which searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according to your works.

This is very serious. He gave her time to repent. But if she doesn’t, she will get sick, those that commit adultery with her will go into great tribulation unless they repent. Her children (so called spiritual fruit) will be killed with death. All the Churches will know the Jesus is not playing and His eyes are like fire, and they can’t hide.

24 But unto you I say , and unto the rest in Thyatira, as many as have not this doctrine, and which have not known the depths of Satan, as they speak ; I will put upon you none other burden.

Jezebel’s doctrine is satanic, and very serious.

25 But that which ye have already hold fast till I come *. 26 And he that overcometh , and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations: 27 And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers : even as I received of my Father. 28 And I will give him the morning star. 29 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

If you overcome Jezebel, you will have a lot of authority over nations.

So let’s talk briefly about how the Church in Detroit has tolerated Jezebel, and how the Church can turn its heart back to God.

She teaches fornication. Naturally, fornication is having sex with someone other than your wife. Spiritually, its worshipping idols other than the Creator. These idols could be represented by power and influence or money and productivity (which is related to Baal, the OT Jezebel’s idol).

She teaches God’s servants how to eat food that has been sacrificed to idols. Naturally, this could be a piece of chicken that has been branded by Lucifer’s Chicken Shack. Spiritually, it could be a piece of music (an inanimate creation of God) that has been married to lyrics that worship false Gods.

Jezebel teaches God’s servants by example how to mix with the world, fornicate, and eat food (music) that has been sacrificed to idols. She does this as a minister from inside the church because they tolerate her.

Do you see the adultery in the church? Is there anyone who can see this happening? Yesterdays countdown was about Judgement beginning in the house of God because We Have All the Authority and We are Already on Top, even when we don’t realize it. People are dying, people are being exposed as adulterers, there is divorce all over the church. And we don’t know that its because Jesus is judging Jezebel.

Are you tired of seeing all the “top” gospel artists and big time preachers divorcing, committing adultery, partnering with unbelievers spiritually, copying and following secular artists,  and copying unGodly business principles? The natural adultery and fornication only represents the spiritual adultery and fornication. They teach Jezebels doctrine by example… they say they do it to reach more people but Jesus sees through that lie. It may be thru ignorance, but its inspired by Jezebel for money and power. We need to repent and stop tolerating it. It more serious than we think, and its spiritually satanic, and its all our fault.

If that’s not enough for you to believe, wait until I share more info on this blog and in the dreams and testimony… When you bear fruit, God’s Word prunes you so that you can bear even more fruit! Even as a gospel dj, there are songs (even scriptural songs) that I played 3 months ago – that I won’t play now, because I fear God and I have a clearer view of Jezebels doctrine.

One morning a few weeks ago my wife had an open vision of some old, wooden doors opening and closing. We knew that God was opening and closing doors, but we didn’t really know the full interpretation. However, that same day, we ended up at the Motown Museum. I’ve lived in Detroit over 20 years and I’ve never been there, but all the sudden I was there that day because family came in from out of town and wanted to visit it!

Soon we understood that the doors God was closing was the door of God’s Levites being stolen from the Church. All the young musicians from God’s Church were seduced into singing for Money and Adultery. Motown’s first hit was “Money” That’s What I want. Their second hit was “Shop Around.” The Beatles first hit was a remix of “Money” That’s What I Want, written by Motown. The international, multiracial, and multi-genre influence of Motown is unfathomable. But it all came from God’s Levites being stolen from His Church.

God is closing those doors, and He’s opening the doors to the House of Prayer where God will be worshipped by His Levites, by God’s House becoming a house of prayer for all nations. A pure song that isn’t inspired by idolatry is soon to come. We won’t tolerate the secular remixes, or the regurgitations of idolatry in the church. Originality and Creativity is coming into God’s House of Prayer for All Nations, for we will worship and focus on the Creative God Who is Beautiful and Set Apart to Himself as His Own Purpose (Holy).

In the past few weeks, I’ve been there 3 times with different prayer groups from DaHOP, Burn, The Call, etc… More revelations, worship, and declarations come every time. We are excited that Jesus Christ is marching back into His temple, whipping out the money changers, turning over the tables, and taking God’s Levites back to sing a song that is Holy to the Lord and building Detroit into a House of Prayer, a City of Praise and Public Worship.

I will be sharing more of the research and scriptures on repenting from Toleration of Jezebel this Friday. We will be seeking to achieve the great repentance that is necessary to turn our city and nation around at DaHOP on Friday nights. Join us. Daniel turned a nation repenting and praying all by himself! So if 3 of you come and join us on Fridays leading up to The Call and join us at The Call in TRUE REPENTANCE…. What could happen in our nation?

Make your way to Detroit on 11-11-11 for The Call. Pray with us. Join people all over Detroit that are fasting and praying in preparation for God to do something BIG in our city, nation, and world… NOW. Yes, NOW.

6th Message from Jesus – How to Be THE CLOSEST to God the Father!

6th Message: How to Be THE CLOSEST to God the Father!
A Message from Jesus to Patient Christians
(Philadelphia) Revelation 3:7-13

Jesus describes Himself:
1. He that is Holy – transcendently beautiful, perfect, and separate
2. He that is True – no lie in Him
3. He that has the Key of David – Has authority as King of Jerusalem, spiritually and naturally.
4. The exclusively opens and shuts doors – Is in control of all opportunities. “I’m heaven’s bouncer, booking agent, manager, HR, connecter, rainmaker, etc…”

Why does Jesus describe Himself this way to this Church? Jesus is speaking a message of encouragement and assurance to a patient group of Christians; He is telling them that He is Trustworthy, In TOTAL Control, and Has no bad motives towards them in keeping them waiting.

Jesus Knows and is INTIMATELY acquainted with:
– their works. So He gives them an Open Door. NO Man can shut it, or take this opportunity away from them.
 – they have a little strength
 – they kept His Word
 – they have not denied His name.

He will make fake artificial Christians:
1. Come and worship God before the Patient Christian’s feet.
2. Know how much God loves the Patient Christians in this church.

Because you kept the Word of God’s patience:
– God will keep them from the tribulation.

Instructions: Hold TIGHTLY to what you already have!
1. Word- The Words of Jesus.
2. Name – the Name and authority of Jesus. Commitment to Him.
3. Patience.
Hold on to these things so no one takes your crown (reward).

Promises if you Overcome:
1. I will make you a pillar in God’s temple, you will stay there.
2. I will write God’s name on you.
3. I will write the name of God’s city on You.
4. I (Jesus) will write my Brand New Exclusive name on you.

The patient Christian that overcomes (maintains and hold’s on to the patience of Christ, trust in God’s Word, and trust in God’s name); will be built into God’s temple (be closest to God. They will also be branded with:
God’s name.
God’s city.
Jesus’s brand new name.

Name stands for authority and identity.

So over and above being a member of heaven:
 You will be build into part of the temple- be closer to God.
 You will have God’s name, and the name of God’s city.
 And Jesus’s new name as your “name brand.”

That’s sweet! You get to represent God more than anyone else in heaven!

Obviously patience is very important to the heart of the Son of God.

1. Notice that Jesus said NOTHING BAD about this patient group of Christians.
2. Notice how many good things he gave them:
– An Open door. Exclusive opportunities that nobody can take away.
– Fake Jews bowing down
– Being vindicated by God’s love before fake Jews
– Being protected from the greatest tribulation to come on the whole world
– A CROWN
3. On top of all that, if they overcome (and keep Jesus’ Patience, Word, and Name), they get to be closest to God, be branded with His names, and represent God more than anyone in heaven.

PATIENCE & Faith in God’s Word and Name – VERY IMPORTANT.

If you have a heart that can hear and understand spiritual things, please PAY attention to what the Spirit is saying to the Churches- this is Deep and Important.

5th Message: How to Stay Saved and Keep Your Name in the Book of Life!
A Message from Jesus to the Dead Christians
(Sardis) Revelation 3:1-6

Jesus describes Himself: I Own the Church and I know what’s going on in it.
1. I have the Seven Spirits of God
2. I have the Seven Stars. (The 7 Messengers of the Church).

Jesus Knows:
1. Your works
2. You have a name that you are alive, but you are dead. You have branded yourself to be alive but its just an image. You are hanging around the Churches, going through the motions, but you are spiritually dead. I know, I’m the One really in charge.

Your Instructions:
1. Be watchful. Watch and Pray.
2. Strengthen the things which remain, that are not dead yet. Why? I have not found your works mature before God
3. Remember what you heard before, hold on to them, and repent.

IF You don’t watch, you won’t know when I (Jesus) am coming back.

That’s the 2nd time Jesus told the dead Christians to watch and pray.
 
41: Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak. Matthew 26

Be Aware! Watch and see what is going on, and then pray to God about what you see.
Instead of being spiritually asleep, watch!
Good things about this Church: They have a few names that have not defiled their garments (have not slipped into an unrighteous lifestyle after being saved).
Promise: They will walk with Jesus in white.
-White garments symbolize your righteousness.
-There were only a FEW Christians in Sardis that were still living in their righteousness.
-Those are the ONLY individuals that will walk with Christ in white.

Promise:
He that Overcomes (their spiritual deadness and unrighteous acts)
1. Will be clothed in white raiment: (righteousness).
2. Jesus will NOT blot their name out of the book of life. (Meaning that if they don’t overcome, He WILL blot their name out of the book of life). Jesus already had plans to blot their name out of the book of life, but if they overcome, He won’t.
3. He will confess their name before God the Father and His angels.

If you have a heart to listen and understand, please pay attention, concentrate, and take heed to the deeper meanings that the Spirit seeks to express to many different groups of Christians.

If Jesus says that He can blot your name out of the Book of Life, that means He can do it. Jesus doesn’t make vain threats, or waste His words.

If you are a “dead” Christian; You are in church, and have a name that you are alive, but are really DEAD, then YOU NEED TO OVER COME THIS PROBLEM. If you are with a group of Christians where most of you are spiritually dead and living unrighteous, you need to solve this problem.

Otherwise you may get your name blotted out of the book of life by Jesus.

How to Overcome:
1. You need to watch:
a. Be Spiritually aware instead of asleep.
b. Pray about what you see.
2. You need to strengthen yourself in the spirit.
a. Through Prayer in the Spirit
b. Rich study of God’s Word
c. Fasting.
3. Don’t defile yourself with corruption or unrighteous acts.
a. Live righteously in real life everyday.
b. Develop a hatred for things that are unclean to God.

Some people think: “Once Save always Saved.”

They think because they prayed a prayer a long time ago, or they were baptized as kids, or because they still go to church and have a name that they are alive, that everything is okay and they are righteous in God’s sight.

Well, Jesus said that He owns the Spirits of God and the Messengers of the Churches. He knows who really is living righteous and clean. He saved you for a relationship with Him, not to put your name in a membership.

If you have a “name,” image, or brand that you are alive spiritually, but you really are dead spiritually: you need to repent, watch, pray, strengthen, and stop defiling your righteous spiritual white clothes with filthy actions.

If you overcome this “dead” Christianity, you will be really righteous in Christ’s eyes, and Jesus will keep your name in the book of life. Otherwise, He’ll blot it out.

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!

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.

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.

1st Message:How to Eat the Tastiest Fruit in the Universe!

A Message from Jesus to “The Old Faithful Christian”

Ephesus (Revelation 2:1-11)

 

Jesus describes Himself:

1. I hold the 7 Stars in My right hand. “I control your leaders.” (Rev 1:20).

2. I walk in between the 7 Candlesticks. “I’m in the Churches” (Rev 1:20).

Why does Jesus describe Himself this way? I believe that He wants the Old Faithful Christians to know that He is still there with them in their midst. He’s saying “I still have your leaders in my hands, I’m still walking around with you, I’m there, I see you, I’m with you.” It’s easy to forget that Jesus is with you, and that He is in control of leaders in the Church, and guiding them with His Word. We must never forget to fellowship with and be followers of other more mature Christians who are in the Word. That’s where Jesus is! If you are not with a group of believers in Jesus, you are not with Jesus!

How do we know that these are “Old Faithful” Christians? Look at how Jesus knows them:

Jesus knows, sees, and is intimately acquainted with their:

1. Works. They worked for God.

2. Labor. They worked in hard circumstances.

3. Patience. They were mature and longsuffering.

4. Can’t bear those that are evil. They had high standards for fellowship.

5. Tested lying apostles. They had good discernment and diligence.

6. They suffered and labored a lot for Jesus name and did not ever quit.

So these weren’t baby Christians… they were very mature and solid. However, Jesus has one thing against them.

PROBLEM:

They left their first love. Jesus is still there with them, and He sees that they have left Him as their first love.

Instruction /Solution:

1. Remember the place you were before at first.

2. Repent, turn around.

3. Do the first works. “Do the first things you did when you fell in love with me.”

What did you do when you first met God? Maybe you tried to introduce other people to Him and tell them about Him! You may not have been the best at it (God knows I was horrible at it), but at least you tried. Just start trying again! Who knows, you may be better at it now?

Maybe you were curious about the Word of God… you were hungry for it. Well get hungry again! Maybe you enjoyed being with God’s people, whether it was at a church service, at a bible study, prayer meeting… you didn’t care, you just loved being with God’s people.

Whatever it was you did at first, start doing it again. What did you do when you first believed that you don’t do anymore?

OR ELSE [This is not a vain instruction with no consequences for disobedience]:

1. If you don’t obey those instructions, I will come to you quickly and remove your candlestick out its place.

2. Candlestick = church (Rev 1:20). Your group of Christians will no longer have its position, power, and influence that it’s supposed to have.

BUT, You have One more good thing in you.

1. You hate the deeds of the Nicolaitanes, which I also HATE (see 3 Main doctrines Jesus HATES).

He that has an Ear, let him hear what the Spirit says unto the Churches. (Notice Churches is plural, this message is for several churches). “PAY ATTENTION, this is very important, if you have a spiritual heart to listen, then make sure you listen and research and discover the deeper meanings the Holy Spirit is trying to give to many groups of Christians.”

PROMISE – If you overcome this specific problem, and return to your first love:

“I will give you fruit from the Tree of Life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.”

God is not a man – He wouldn’t lie. He doesn’t make vain promises that don’t mean anything. If God promises you a reward- believe me, it’s something you would want! It’s not a consolation prize.

These are specific directions from Jesus to His Church, and this is a HUGE reward God gives to those who obey. If you are a believer in Christ, your name is already in the book of life, (you have already overcome sin, satan, and the world), but this “extra” overcomer reward is only for those who overcome this specific problem (leaving your first love) that Jesus told them to.

Rekindle your zeal, commitment, and hunger for God that you had at first. “Do the things you did when you first believed in Me.” A lot of older Christians think they are more mature or experienced because they have left their first love, and they don’t do the things they started out doing. But as you see in this message to the Old Faithful Christian, Jesus sees things totally different. He commands us to do the first works.

If you don’t, you will lose your place as a witness (shining light, candlestick) to God’s work in the earth. The church is meant to declare the wisdom of God (Ephesians 3:10). Without the fire of your first love, your candle is not lit. You will lose your “impact” as a group of believers.

If you restore your original fire for God by doing the first works you did when you first believed in Him (love is obedience, Matt 14)… Then not only will you be a member of the Kingdom of Heaven, but you will also have access to eat special fruit from the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.

Use your imagination here! Imagine how good that fruit will be. If God only promises this to people who overcome that problem, then people who don’t overcome this will NOT get to enjoy that. Imagine not being able to eat that fruit. Remember that these are not useless words. This is something you would really want. These are Jesus’ last direct verbal instructions recorded in the Bible. Do them please. Don’t be an “Old Faithful” Christian that has left your first love.

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)

7 Ways to Overcome – 7 Messages from Jesus – Intro

Art used by Pat Marvenko Smith, copyright 1992. To order prints visit her “Revelation Illustrated” site, http://revelationillustrated.com.

This is the final set of specific written instructions JESUS ever gave to His followers. It is crucially important! In it are special and specific clues on how to overcome the greatest temptations, deceptions, and trials of life. It was originally given to the Apostle of Love, John. It was recorded in The Revelation of Jesus Christ – A book that reveals God. Revelations reveals God’s Heart, God’s Glory, and God’s indubitable ownership of heaven and earth very clearly.

In this time of earth-wide pandemonium… most of the set-up for the final acts of Revelations is being put together. There are wars, rumors of wars, false prophets everywhere, increased deception, panic, and fear in the world. Apostasy is happening as even former Christians are falling away from the holy faith. The cultures of the world are increasing in rage against the standards of righteousness and holiness that God has set through His Son Jesus Christ. But Jesus is still the King of the Universe! (See Psalms 2).

This is the overview of the last days scenario: First Jesus will open the 7 Seals, one at a time. Then, angels will blow 7 Trumpets, one at a time. Jesus will come back at the 7th Trumpet, and finally begin to pour out 7 bowls of Wrath as He cleans up the earth and prepares to make it new. Please notice: Christ comes back to earth at the last Trumpet. There are 7 seals to be opened before any of the Trumpets, and 6 Trumpets before the Last Trumpet when the Church is raptured (1 Corinthians 15:52). So whatever your view is of the rapture – a basic reading of Revelations shows that you are going to be here through some Seals and Trumpets.

I say this because you need to strengthen your heart with knowledge and understanding of the plan and desires of God. Before all this happens, NOW is your time to understand and the 7 Messages of Jesus. These messages are for many different Churches, and it is written to strengthen the Believers in the context of the activities of Revelations. In these messages are 7 Ways for you to Overcome, no matter what type of Christian you are.

1st Message: How To Eat the Tastiest Fruit in the Universe!

Ephesus (Revelation 2:1-11)

 

3 Main Doctrines that Jesus Hates

3 Main Doctrines Jesus HATES in the 7 Final Messages to His Church.

(They are similar):

1. Doctrine of Balaam: Set Stumbling Blocks before God’s people so they can:

A. Eat food (harmless substance) that has been sacrificed to false gods.

B. Commit Fornication (spiritual and physical)

2. Doctrine of Nicolaitanes: Conquering & Corrupting God’s people so they can:

A. Commit Fornication (spiritual, physical)

B. Eat food (harmless substance) that has been sacrificed to false gods.

C. Nicolaitanes is linked closely with doctrine of Balaam. Nicolaitanes means “ to conquer laity.”

3. Doctrine of Jezebel: False Prophetess, False Teaching, Seduces Gods people to:

A. Commit Fornication (spiritual, physical)

B. Eat food (harmless substance) that has been sacrificed to false gods.

Notice that all of these doctrines that Jesus HATES have the same goal, but accomplish it different ways.

Balaam is trickery. “Just try it this way, it’s okay.”

Nicolaitanes is forceful. “Do it! Your ___ if you don’t. It’s okay.”

Jezebel is seduction. “It’ll be alright, it feels good… it’s okay.”

Fornication: Sexual pleasure & contact outside of marriage. Sexual pleasure is derived from chemicals that flow through your brain and bloodstream. It can be stimulated by sight, touch, and other senses. It is derived from your mind, and therefore… your mind is in control of it. Stop it. (Colossians 3:5).

Spiritually, it is allegiance to any Gods other than the true God (Isaiah 23:17, Ezekiel 16:26). It can also mean financial business agreements with sin involved.

Eating food sacrificed to idols. The Bible is clear that there are harmless things that would be otherwise okay, if they weren’t offered up to demons (1 Cor 8, 1 Cor. 10:28). In our culture it’s hard to understand this because we don’t live the same way they did. In their culture, the priests of the idol “god” of the city would promote feasts, games, festivals, etc. It would be like a party or concert or festival “sponsored by Diana”, or “Zeus.” It was kind of like corporate sponsorship today. “The Olympics, brought to you by ACME Inc.” They didn’t have TV, Movies, CDs, or Radio, or Internet. Festivals like this were the main entertainment and pastime of cultures surrounding the New Testament.

Any Christian knows that a piece of chicken is just a piece of chicken. God made it, God owns it. Eat it if you’re hungry! But all over the New Testament (Acts 15:20,29, 1 John 5:21), God instructs His people to display their love for Him by refusing to eat food that had been openly and knowingly offered to false gods. It’s not about the food, it’s about your love for your true God and love for your neighbor in not to causing them to stumble by seeing and following your example.

Although health is an entirely different subject, there are really no “demonic chicken dinners” or “idolatry pizza parlors” around anymore. Nowadays, the idols of entertainment take harmless music, and lace it with demonic deception – lyrically. They take harmless movies, and sacrifice them – via the script to the false gods of greed, fornication, false religions, relativism, atheism, violence, theft, homosexuality, etc…

Beware of those doctrines that Jesus HATES! They will try anyway they can to get you to accept fornication, idolatry, and compromise:

Balaamites will trick you into compromise.

Nicolaitanes will force and corrupt you into compromise.

Jezebellians will teach and seduce you into enjoying compromise.

Stick with Jesus, your first love!
