My People Perish because I (God) have been Removed. 

PSALM 82.
TO THE GOVERNMENTS, PRESIDENTS, AND RULERS OF NATIONS!

God has taken his place in the divine council [For there is no authority except by God – Romans 13:1b]; in the midst of the gods [Presidents and Rulers] he holds judgment:

[This is God’s questioning of them] “How long will you [Rulers and Presidents] judge unjustly and show partiality to the wicked [and overlook the rest of the people]?
Selah [Stop and think about this; let this sink into your head and heart].

“Give justice to the weak and the fatherless; maintain the right of the afflicted and the destitute. Rescue the weak and the needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked” [Many times, you, yourselves. oh rulers, are, in fact, the wicked ones]. “They have neither knowledge nor understanding, they walk about in darkness [for they love the darkness more than the light because their deeds are evil – John 3:19]; all the foundations of the earth are shaken.” [There is war, racism, and hatred because there is no fear of God and knowledge of God within the goverments and the land]!
I said, “You are god’s [Presidents and Rulers], sons of the Most High [You are but mere men, created by God like all other human beings], all of you; nevertheless, like men you shall die, and fall like any prince.”
Arise, O God, judge the earth; for you shall inherit all the nations!

Weakness Becomes Your Biggest Strength……………

205376_468289056514635_1108292152_n.jpgYOUR BIGGEST WEAKNESS BECOMES YOUR BIGGEST STRENGTH –  A JAPANESE STORY:

A 10-year old boy decided to study Judo despite the fact that he had lost his left arm in a devastating car accident. The boy began taking lessons with an old Japanese Judo Master.  The boy was doing very well, so he could not understand why, after three months of training the Master had taught him only ONE MOVE.

The boy was a little perplexed what his Master was doing and said, ‘Sensei (Master), shouldn’t I be learning more moves?‘This is the only move you know, but this is the only move you will ever need to know,’ the Sensei replied.  Not quite understanding but believing in his teacher, the boy kept training.  Several months later, the Sensei took the boy to his first tournament.  Surprising himself, the boy easily won his first two matches.

CAN A SAINT FALSELY ACCUSE GOD?

“All the promises of God in Him are Yes, and in Him Amen…” (2 Corinthians 1:20).

Jesus’ parable of the talents recorded in Matthew 25:14-30 was a warning that it is possible for us to misjudge our capacities. This parable has nothing to do with natural gifts and abilities but relates to the gift of the Holy Spirit as He was first given at Pentecost.

We must never measure our spiritual capacity on the basis of our education or our intellect; our capacity and spiritual things are measured on the basis of the promises of God. If we get less than God wants us to have, we will falsely accuse Him as the servant falsely accused his master when he said, “you expect more of me than you gave me the power to do. You demand too much of me, and I cannot stand true to you here where you have placed me.”

When it is a question of God’s Almighty Spirit, never say, “I can’t.” Never allow the limitation of your own natural ability to enter into the matter. If we have received the Holy Spirit, God expects the work of the Holy Spirit to be exhibited in us. The servant justified himself while condemning his Lord on every point, as if to say, “your demand on me is way out of proportion to what you gave to me.”

Have we been falsely accusing God by daring to worry after He has said, “But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you”? (Matthew 6:33). Worrying means exactly what the servant implied – “I know your intent is to leave me unprotected and vulnerable.” A person who is lazy in the natural realm is always critical, saying, “I haven’t had a decent chance…” and someone who is lazy in the spiritual realm is critical of God. Lazy people always strike out at others in an independent way.

Never forget that our capacity and capability in spiritual matters is measured by, and based on, the promises of God. Is God able to fulfil his promises? Our answer depends on whether or not we have received the Holy Spirit. (April 20)

Fear Not! For I am with you….

Grace Came Ministry

Psalm 91-1Whoever dwells in the shelterof the Most High
will rest in the shadowof the Almighty.[a]

Darkness shall cover the earth, and deep darkness the people. But I have good news for you, Good news of the promises in God’s Word that will fortify you and equip you during these times. Good news of His protection and His favor upon you.

Good news that declares that you are in this world, but not of this world! Isaiah 60:2 does not end with deep darkness. It goes on to declare this: But the Lord will arise over you, and His glory will be seen upon you. The darker the world becomes, the brighter YOU will shine. As gloom and despair cover the earth, your light will become increasingly radiant. You will be His beacon of grace and glory in the midst of deep darkness.

VIDEO The Focal Point of Spiritual Power – Why Most Christians are Powerless, Spiritual Warfare

StopAndPrayTV

The Focal Point of Spiritual Power

If you want to know the power of God (that is, the resurrection life of Jesus) in your human flesh, you must dwell on the tragedy of God. Break away from your personal concern over your own spiritual condition, and with a completely open spirit consider the tragedy of God. Instantly the power of God will be in you. “Look to Me…” (Isaiah 45:22). Pay attention to the external Source and the internal power will be there. We lose power because we don’t focus on the right thing. The effect of the Cross is salvation, sanctification, healing, etc., but we are not to preach any of these. We are to preach “Jesus Christ and Him crucified” (1 Corinthians 2:2). The proclaiming of Jesus will do its own…

Cabernet Sauvignon

I believe getting “Drunk in the Holy Spirit” is just as dangerous as getting drunk with alcohol. Both lead to moronic and scandalous behaviour. Both bring disgrace to you and perhaps those around you i.e. your family and friends. But, the former brings disgrace to God and to what His Church should be – a light to the world and hope.

“Wow!” exclaimed Sarah as she sipped the Cabernet Sauvignon for the very first time. Swirling it around in her mouth, she could taste and smell a barrage of fragrances that permeated her taste buds. “It tastes like more… much, much more.” “I wonder where this comes from, and I’m not talking about the shop, just in case someone thinks I’m having a blonde moment”, she giggled.

“I’ll tell you”, said James, helping himself to a second glass, since the first glass did not even touch sides. “Being a viticulturist of sorts, I’ll be happy to bore you with some interesting details”, he said, with a please-let-me-tell-you expression on his face.

“Sure, tell me, this will be interesting”, Sarah responded, not because she really wanted to know, but was only passing common courtesy to James.

“Excellent”, continued James, overjoyed to unleash his academic knowledge to those who would lend him an…

Emmanuel is remedy for separation

Great Article!

Jesus’ name is God with us which is the word ‘Immanuel’ or ‘Emmanuel’

Isa 7:14 (KJ2000) ” 14 Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel. ”

Matt 1:23 (KJ2000) ” 23 Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us. ”

It appears that there is some controversy about the Old Testament prediction of the virgin birth and it is pretty interesting.  See:

https://www.oneforisrael.org/bible-based-teaching-from-israel/virgin-birth-fairytale-or-biblical-prophecy/

http://www.patheos.com/blogs/joeljmiller/2012/12/does-the-old-testament-really-predict-the-virgin-birth/

Why does there have to be controversy?

Because people don’t want to accept it. It is not possible for a virgin to be pregnant.
This ‘scientific’ fact must not be disputed and yet an embryo can be nurtured in a cup.
I think people…
