REPENT OF YOUR SINS


0UR VISION Romans 15:20(TPT) It is my honor and constant passion to be a pioneer who preaches where no one has ever even heard of the Anointed One, instead of building upon someone else’s foundation.

OUR MISSION 1 Corinthians 1:17 (MSG) God didn’t send me out to collect a following for myself, but to preach the Message of what He has done, collecting a following for Him. And He didn’t send me to do it with a lot of fancy rhetoric of my own, lest the powerful action at the center—Christ on the Cross—be trivialized into mere words.


how to become SAVED? Your commitment to Jesus Christ is the most important decision you will ever make in your life. It can be said that “the longest journey begins with a single step.” Begin your journey and partner with God to change your life. This is only the beginning. What does it mean to be saved? Salvation is not a denominational doctrine or a family inheritance. It is a personal experience. If you have any doubt about your salvation, pray the sinner’s prayer (see prayer below). First, you must repent of your sin! Consider your life and anything in it that I'm a philanthropist, would grieve God. List those things. Now read the following Bible verses as you consider how God feels author, public speaker, about those sins:

businesswoman, and an artistic person. “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, being justified freely by His grace through the Gracefully set apart and redemption that is in Christ Jesus, whom God set forth as a propitiation by His blood, through faith, to anointed as were a demonstrate His righteousness, because in His forbearance God had passed over by the Him sins that Prophetess. previously committed, to demonstrate at the present time His righteousness, that He might be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus.” (Romans 3:23-4:3) Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord. (Acts 3:19) Do you feel convicted to turn away from sin? If you do, you are ready to take the second step, which is to believe that Jesus Christ died for your sin. He has paid the price for those moments when you failed. If you ask for forgiveness, He will freely give it. The Bible makes that very clear: "Since we have now been justified by His blood, how much more shall we be saved from God’s wrath through Him! For if, while we were God’s enemies, we were reconciled to Him through the death of His Son, how much more, having been reconciled, shall we be saved through His life!" (Romans 5:910) Hand those sins over to Him, and feel His love and forgiveness in your heart. Then you must ask Him to come into your life. He is the door to the Father. Jesus Himself said, “I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture” (John 10:9). And the apostle John later told the early Christians, “Whoever denies the Son does not have the Father either; he who acknowledges the Son has the Father also” (1 John 2:23). Take a moment to ask the Lord Jesus to be a part of each day of your life. At a time when you are ready, recite the following prayer of salvation and your name will be written in the Lamb’s Book of Life. No one can blot it out. You are His. You will spend eternity with the Father in heaven. Lord, I ask that You forgive me of all my sins, both known and unknown. I ask that You accept me as Your own and write my name in the Lamb’s Book of Life. I acknowledge and believe that You died and rose again. From this day forward I will read Your Word and obey it. Because of the blood of the Cross, I am now forgiven. My sins are buried in the sea of forgetfulness, never to be remembered against me anymore. I am now a child of God, and Jesus Christ is the Lord of my life. Amen. PASTOR JOHN HAGEE

EDITOR'S NOTE d winked at; And the times of this ignorance Go where to but now commandeth all men every repent: Acts 17:30 KJV

Beloved , this verse says : " the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now COMMANDS ALL MEN EVERY WHERE TO REPENT . This is a scary matter. It shows that there is no level of ignorance that God will overlook. Meaning we cannot afford to be ignorant in the name of " the grace of God is sufficient" . We have ignored it's enough. we've had pleasure in the world it's enough, we've played church it's enough , we've abused abused grace it's enough. Now the Almighty God is COMMANDING ALL MEN TO REPENT. We are to constantly repent and really turn our backs on the world otherwise we will not see Heaven. I'm touched by this revelation the Lord shared to a certain brother about: the devil not caring about being going to receive Christ because ,most of them receive Him without repenting of even planning on doing so and therefore go on living thinking they are saved but are actually lukewarm or cold . I beesch you brethern , lets go back to fearing God and obeying Hid LAW as it is. Let's not want to manuvor the Kingdom on our own terms and condition. The Lord Jesus is preparing His bride, are you a part of it and allowing Him to do so His way

Your Heart Is Where Your Treasure Is by Dr André and Jenny Roebert Matthew 26:15 (AMPC): "...What are you willing to give me if I hand Him over to you? And they weighed out for and paid to him thirty pieces of silver [about twenty-one dollars and sixty cents]." Judas went to the chief priests to determine how much money they would be willing to pay him, to betray Jesus. At this time, the rulers and Pharisees were already plotting to kill Jesus with stealth, waiting for the perfect opportunity to present itself. Around that time, another event occurred, and according to Luke 7:38, a woman came to Jesus and fell at his feet. Her tears of affection and deep gratitude washed His feet, and she dried them with her hair. Then she broke her alabaster jar filled with expensive perfume and poured it over His feet. This perfume signified her all, including her stained past and the income she received as a result of it. Her sacrifice poured out was an expression of her heart overflowing with adoration. The One Who showed such grace and mercy, where it was not deserved, became the recipient of her treasure. Her act of love made such an impression on Jesus that He declared her story would be told forever. In stark contrast, due to the condition of his heart, Judas was willing to betray Jesus for a few coins. May we never undervalue our Saviour! May He always be the recipient of our treasure, for there our hearts will be also (Matthew 6:21).


THE 351 CHAMBERS OF HELL & THE 47,000 CITIES OF HEAVEN

HELL & HEAVEN TESTIMONY

"I WANT PEOPLE THAT ARE ENJOYING LIFE TO KNOW THAT HELL IS

Satan said to these lost souls, “You people were rejecting me and despising me in your life, but with your actions and deeds you were following me, for you are doing my bidding, though you hated me. You never follow the way of the God you claimed to love and follow. All your

HUMANITY, WHICH IS

your lives doing my bidding, instead of

EITHER THE ABODE OF

the will of your God. Yet you claim to love Him and reject me.

THE DEAD, WHICH IS PERDITION OR THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN.”


HELL & HEAVEN TESTIMONY

You cannot love God and walk in my ways. If you really love God, you would have done His will and obey His command. When you love God you do His bidding and walk in His way. But you did my will all your life.” At that time I saw the lost souls telling the devil, “We never rejected you. We never scorned you. We praise you.” Brother, I saw these lost souls praising the devil in order to get his mercy. However, the devil told these lost souls, “Rejoice for this is your kingdom for eternity to eternity since you chose to live doing my will. This is your rewards and your kingdom forever.” Then these souls were taken from the reception of Hell, which was a volcano to their respective chambers, for they are 351 chambers of Hell.

CHAPTER 4 The Lord said, “The attraction, entertainment, and pleasure of this world is blinding the world population about the reality of the afterlife. But humanity must understand that if the rapture is being delayed, death will come like a thief in their lives.” Beloved, I was taken to Hell for a period of 351 days in order to visit the 351 chambers of Hell. In John 3:16, the Bible says, “For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.”

Brother, when the Lord took me to this high mountain, the Lord asked me, “What are you seeing?” When I looked I saw 12 craters over the globe. They seem like funnels. These craters or funnels were like moving. They were all over the Earth. The Lord said, “These are the 12 entries of Hell.” I was watching when I saw that these 12 craters becoming one. Quickly I heard a powerful voice that said, “Delivery.” When I heard this voice saying “delivery,” I saw thousands of human souls being sucked by these 12 craters that were like in a funnel. These numerous souls seem like sand falling beneath the Earth through these funnels. When we followed these souls that were falling in these craters, I saw creatures that were bound on the side of Hell. They were scary. When we entered Hell, brother, there was an unbearable stench. It was like the whole world is dead and you are exposed to the stench of the corpses of the world. I was hearing cries of hopelessness and despair. There was a darkness that is not found on the Earth. I said, “Lord, I cannot bear this.” He told me, “My son, you better see what I am about to show you.” I said, “Lord, I will tell the world that this place exists.” The Lord said, “You have to see this. It is necessary.” When we began to fall in Hell, I saw that we were like descending in a volcano. It was red. Demons were trying to catch us but they could not. When we reached Hell, I saw a limitless landscape, the sand on the ground was red.


HELL & HEAVEN TESTIMONY

Then I saw a huge and silent queue of people. They were numerous in thousands. While these souls were in the queue, I saw that the sand upon which they were standing was hurting them. I saw that in the air, there were demons flying over. They were saying to these lost souls, “Rejoice, for this is your kingdom for eternity. You who chose evil, rejoice for you will be here for eternity to eternity.” I was watching the queue. Then I saw a demon that was holding a chain that was heated in high temperature. It was really red. This demon was hitting the souls that were off the line because of the red sand that was hurting them. And whenever he beat people with this chain, they were huge cuts on their bodies. But I noticed that instead of blood, huge worms were falling out from the cuts in their bodies. The Lord said, “These people are waiting to be called and be cast into the fire of Hell.” The Lord then took me to the beginning of this queue. When we reached the gates of Hell, where the queue started, I saw a man sitting on a throne. He was dressed in a gray garment that was dirty. And before him was a table that was endless. I can say that this table was as long as our borough. Besides this man was a huge plasma TV, where he was projecting on this screen the lives of many people. This demon was Nickel or Apollyon. He was many meters tall.

There are 12 gateways that lead to Hell. These entries of Hell lead to the 12 tunnels, which lead to 351 chambers of Hell. I would like to clarify that each chamber of Hell is the size of a continent like Africa or Asia.

CHAMBERS OF MUSIC In Hell, we visited a place called the chambers of music where I heard the sounds of all kinds of music. I mean secular music and Christian music by soul guitarists, drummers, and those playing all kinds of instruments. I thought there was something good in this place. But it was not the case. When the Lord asked me to enter, brother, when we entered this chamber of music, I saw popular musicians of our country, I saw notorious American celebrities and I heard some other rappers like Puff Daddy in this chamber. Their songs were playing here. They were leading fans of world music to Hell. I saw these musicians who were on top of a mountain where it was written, “Mountain of Torment.” At this mountain of torment, I saw the souls of musical artists and fans of secular music. These fans of secular music had chains on their necks, which was similar to the one people put on dogs. The chain went beneath the ground. These fans of worldly music were led to this mountain of torment by demons of music. When a man listens to secular music and any music that is not inspired by the Holy Spirit, there is a condemnation on him.


HELL & HEAVEN TESTIMONY

I saw musical celebrities on a platform in this mountain of torment. They were forced to play music. This was their condemnation. These were singers, drummers, guitarists and as they were playing souls of their fans that were attached to secular music were around the platform and listening and being tortured. In fact, while the music was playing in this place, there was a rain of fire falling on them. Musical celebrities and fans were all burnt. I saw the fans of secular music who had their lower part buried beneath the ground and their upper parts that were visible were covered with worms and demons were tearing apart members of their bodies that were listening to secular music. I saw the demons of Hell who captured the souls of people who listened to secular music, transporting them to this chamber of music. Hearing secular music is condemnation. I saw musicians and those who listen to their music, they were all in this place. The Lord showed me a popular Pastor in our city. Before his conversion, he was attached to secular music. When he came to Christ, he began to serve God. However, he failed to separate from secular music. He continued to listen to secular music coming from his phone through the headphone, for fear of being caught. When he died, he fell in this place for failing to separate from the world.

In Hell, I saw demons tearing apart his ears in order to pull out their mundane songs that he used to hear. This pastor was crying for his torment was unbearable, and there was a rain of fire falling on him. The Lord told me that this rain of fire was the word of good testimony that people on the Earth were saying about him. Whenever people are testifying about his good character, their words are coming to him in the shape of rain of fire falling on him. In Hell, I saw a lady who likes to listen to the songs of Franco Luambo. But when she came to the Lord, she could not sing these songs anymore, but the lady was singing Franco songs in her heart. When she died, she went to Hell, and demons were tearing apart her heart to pull out secular songs that she was singing in her heart. The fire of Hell is not like the one we have on the Earth and the torment of Hell must be avoided. There was also a gospel musician in this chamber. What I saw in Hell were chaos and carnage. These demons of Hell are butchers, they were tearing apart people. I saw demons tearing apart people’s mouths in order to pull out their songs, for they used to sing secular songs with their mouths because this is their property. Secular music is the property of the devil. Demons tore apart the hearts of people who sing world music in their hearts in order to get their songs out. These people were singing profane music in their hearts in their lives.


HELL & HEAVEN TESTIMONY

I asked the Lord Jesus Christ, “Is secular and worldly music bad?” The Lord told me, “My son, look up.” When I looked up, I saw on the top of the mountain of torment, a Congolese musician that died many years ago. We used to call him a great master. I saw demons had bent this artist for he was in a bent position on top of a huge rock that was red because it was heated in high temperature. On his back, there was also a rock so he was bent forever. I saw that he was holding a guitar that was not burning, though he himself was burning. I saw that he was forced to sing profane music, including Christian music. I said to the Lord, “He is singing even Christian songs.” The Lord said, “The devil knows that My children would not listen to secular music. Therefore he is composing Christian songs that will be given to My servants, especially those who are opening doors and living in sin.” The Lord said, “Many of the Christian songs you hear in the world are not My songs since they’re not inspired by the Holy Spirit.” As the musician Franco Luambo was singing these songs, I saw the demons of music coming to take these songs, which they dipped inside the lava of Hell, in order to clothe them with strange fire, and then they travelled to the world to inspire singers and servants of God that were living in sin. I saw that when these songs were put in circulation on the Earth, the winged demons of music were dropping lava of Hell on people so that they would burn with a desire of hearing these songs.

These fires or desires in people’s hearts to listen to secular music and demonic Christian music was from Hell. If you like hearing this music on your phone, when you die in the afterlife, the phone will be the service and evidence in your condemnation. I saw that when Christian and gospel singers released their songs and albums that were inspired by demons, I saw these winged demons of music above churches. They were shouting to the congregations of God’s people and saying, “God’s people, you must get the new album released by brothers such and such. You must play their songs in your churches and your houses.” These demons were inside God’s children to buy Christian songs that were demonic. I saw that when churches and God’s people were hearing these demonic religious songs that were inspired by demons, these unclean spirits were attracted to their houses and in their churches, thanks to satanic gospel songs. As demons are always attracted wherever secular music and uninspired songs were played, when God’s churches were singing and praising with these demonic Christian songs that were inspired by demons, I saw that these winged demons of music were attracted. They were suspended above these churches and they were moving their wings as God’s people were singing those so-called Christian songs composed in Hell.


HELL & HEAVEN TESTIMONY

These winged demons of music were releasing the strange fire of Hell in the congregations of God’s people. And I saw people speaking in tongues as if the Holy Spirit fell on them. Some people were falling and they were reacting as if the power of the Holy Spirit fell upon them. These winged demons were dropping fire and lava of Hell. It was confused with the power of the Holy Spirit. I saw these demons of music shaking and hitting their wings. The Lord said, “What caused My children to be attached to songs that are inspired by demons is the fire of Hell. For whenever these songs are being played, My children feel like they have entered the presence of God because of the strange fire of Hell. Demons are imitating the Holy Spirit fire that works in the believer. If you are attached to secular music, it will take you to Hell. And if you listen to Christian music of artists that are in covenant with the devil, you are giving glory to the devil, and your soul is in danger. ”The Lord said, “What we like and what we hear can lead to judgment. God’s children must separate from secular music. Many of the Christian songs of the Earth are composed by the demons.” In this chamber, I heard many Christian songs that were popular in the country. Some of them were still to be released for many Christian songs are from Hell, like the musician who sang about the key of God, the song like triumphal or telephone, these popular Congolese songs came from demons.

They were many Christian songs that were being played in Hell. The issue is that when a gospel singer is not in intimacy with the Lord, when he is living in distraction, when he opened doors for the kingdom of darkness, he will be inspired by demons of music to compose a Christian song of Hell. Even though the song will be evangelical it is nevertheless from the kingdom of Hell. It is not the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. God’s people that would listen to this song will be in condemnation for they are giving glory to the devil. In Hell, I heard a Congolese gospel song called “Throne.” This song was playing in Hell long before it was put in circulation. Since God’s servants are no longer close to the Spirit of God, since they are in distraction, demons went on to inspire a God’s servant to compose this song. Songs like “Thankful of Mary, Mary” was playing in Hell long before it was released to the evangelical world. When this song came out, I reminded people that I talked to them about this. The big issue is that demons are giving inspiration to Christian singers because these servants are not walking in intimacy with the Holy Spirit. I was instructed not to expose their names but I will hint the titles of their songs that I heard in the chambers of music in Hell. The Lord said, “Any song that is not inspired by the Holy Spirit is of the devil and cannot be sung.


HELL & HEAVEN TESTIMONY

People that are hearing these songs have the judgment of God upon them.” There was a song that I heard in Hell that was supposed to come out in the future, and some are right now sung such as Crown and Throne. I heard these songs in Hell even before they were out. Many people who heard this testimony in 2014 and 15 know about what I am talking about, for I gave them the title of the song that I heard in Hell, which was supposed to be put in circulation. I asked the Lord, “How can Your children escape evangelical songs that are not inspired? And how come gospel singers who are Your servants inspired by demons?”

The Lord said, “Whenever Christian singers are not walking in holiness, they will not be inspired by the Holy Spirit because demons will start inspiring them.” The Lord said, “These songs of demons are clothed with the strange fire of Hell. And when My people hear them they feel fire and they think that it is the fire of the Holy Spirit. Yet it is the fire of Hell. People think that they come into My presence when they hear this Christian music, but in truth, they come into the presence of demons. For many of these songs are inspired by demons.”

TO BE CONTINUED......GODWILLING


REMINDER

DIRECTING ALL PEOPLE TO CHRIST SHEPHERD HILL COMMUNITY

"For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour, Who will have ALL MEN TO BE SAVED......" 1Timothy.2:3-4.

God has invested All into the souls of men, and to watch anyone slip off to hell will Never bring Him joy.

Seeing that we're living in the last days; every believer's strongest drive and passion should be soul winning / directing people to Christ. Just as nobody wants to watch his investment go down the drain,

God gave up His only begotten Son to die the most shameful death, so that all men might live the most glorious life. JESUS said, heaven rejoices when one soul is saved- Luke 15:7,10; and if you make heaven celebrate, you too will celebrate.


REMINDER

God is not ambitious to want all men saved, He is extremely constrained by love to do so; the same love that made JESUS choose to die rather than live, so we can choose to live than die. If you paid for a thousand items and nine hundred were delivered to you, it would mean that you were defrauded and anything less than a thousand that you paid for is still a fraud. JESUS paid for the Salvation of every mankind by his death, to have every soul of man to Himself and He cannot demand for anything less 2Corinthians 5:15; 2Peter 3:9. His precious blood was shed on earth, so the blood will continue to cry in the hearts of unsaved souls and speak in the ears of believers; and "he who has ears to hear, let him hear." The blood price is placing a legitimate demand on what it paid for, and until everybody responds to the blood cry, there can be no rest.

Time is ticking and the blood of JESUS can only cry louder as He watches how hell, daily snatches the souls JESUS paid for. When you read Matthew 25:41, you will find that hell fire was not made for man. God prepared hell for the punishment of the devil and those angels who fell with him . Wake up sometimes in the middle of the night and pray for souls in your vicinity into the Kingdom. Let soul winning be your concern and never relent till everybody you know has a life-changing encounter with Jesus Christ - Isaiah 62:7; Acts 18:9. I pray for you this day to receive Grace for soul-winning drive in Jesus mighty name.

THE WORD OF A KING A few weeks ago, I stumbled across a verse in the Bible that stuck with me. Ecclesiastes 8:4 says, “Where the word of a king is, there is power…” In the legal world, we understand the power of a court order – a decree handed down by a magistrate or judge. It is a legally binding direction that affords protection or guidance to those cited in the matter. Disobeying a court order comes with serious offences, and it offers the injured party relief to be compensated or to have the circumstances rectified in their favour.

If the natural world runs on these principles, how much more similar and more powerful is the spiritual realm? If there are certain earthly institutions and people of authority that possess such power, how much more so in the Kingdom of Light? In the Book of Daniel, we see the power behind an earthly king’s written decree. Daniel 6 speaks of King Darius signing a decree that prevented the people from petitioning any other man or god except for him- the king. Now, Daniel knew of this decree but still continued to pray and give thanks to his God – the God of gods.


LAW & FAITH

The king set his own heart on delivering Daniel, but it was his councillors and governors that reminded him of the power of his own decree as a king. They said, “Know, O King, that the law of the Medes and Persians is, that no decree nor statute which the king establisheth may be changed…” (Daniel 6:15).

This story is a reminder even to the Body of Christ in these last days. Despite all the uncertainty going on in the world, despite all the laws and regulations of earthly kings, we are to continue to pray and trust in the LORD to do and accomplish all He said He would before Jesus’ return!

For this very reason, Daniel was thrown into the den of lions. It did not matter that the king liked Daniel. What mattered was the power and authority behind his decree as a king! A decree that needed to be obeyed. We all know the supernatural story that then unfolded. The next day, when the king went to the den of lions to seek out Daniel, it was discovered that he was untouched and well! The Lord had sent His angel to seal the mouths of the lions. And instead, the men who accused Daniel, were thrown in and overcome by the lions. It is a powerful reminder of the supernatural kingdom we belong to.

We also see the power and authority of a king in the story of Esther. No person was to approach the king unannounced, yet Esther was prepared to sacrifice her life to petition the king for the deliverance of her Jewish people arising from an order that had been decreed against their libes. The Bible says in Esther 5:2, “And it was so, when the king saw Esther the queen standing in the court, that she obtained favour in his sight: and the king held out to Esther the golden sceptre that was in his hand. So Esther drew near, and touched the top of the sceptre. Then said the king unto her, What wilt thou, queen Esther? And what is they request? It shall be even given thee to the half of the kingdom.”

Even if an earthly order has been set or established against you and your faith in Jesus – the LORD Himself is able to intervene and deliver you, for He is the King of all kings and there is more power in HIS WORD.

Where the word of a King is, there is power! So, today, ask yourself - What has the King of King’s decreed and declared over your life? What protection has He afforded you as a son or daughter of the Kingdom of Light? What benefits and advantages are you able to receive and walk in as a child of the Most High God even in these strange times? His Word alone brings life and resurrection to every dead and barren thing. The Most High God created the heaven and earth, sun and moon, man and creation! All by the power of His Word - the same Word that you and I have so that we can walk and live a supernatural and abundant life of peace, prosperity and wholeness. What He speaks and decrees is the final order for your life. It is filled with righteousness, mercy, justice and truth!


LAW & FAITH

He has said that: If we are in Him, we are a NEW CREATION (2 Corinthians 5:17) He knows the PLANS He has for you (Jeremiah 29:11) He will STRENGTHEN and help us (Isaiah 41:10) We can do all things THROUGH HIM (Philippians 4;13) We are PRECIOUS in His eyes (Isaiah 43:4) The earth shall be filled with the KNOWLEDGE of the GLORY of the LORD as the waters cover the sea (Habakkuk 2:14)

This month – focus on immersing yourself in His Word! Discover the amazing truths God has spoken over you and your life! Remind yourself daily of His decrees! Defeat the voice of the enemy with the Word of the LORD! Continue to pray for lost souls to come to Him, repentance, revival and His Church to arise in these days!

Paul writes: “Consider yourselves to be dead to the power of sin and alive to God through Christ…Do not let sin control the way you live; do not give in to sinful desires…[or] let any part of your body become an instrument of evil to serve sin. Instead, give yourselves completely to God” (vv. 11-13 NLT).

If you let it, your body will lead you astray. It’s not that it’s evil, but it has certain appetites which are always ready to respond to surrounding stimuli, all of which are terribly appealing and temporarily satisfying. Chuck Swindoll writes:


“Life on earth is really nothing more than a string of moments…And I don’t want my testimony for Jesus Christ to be shattered by a single moment of indulging my flesh. . I don’t want one moment of rage or pride or lust to cast a shadow over a lifetime of walking with my Lord. Frankly, I fear that possibility. And do you know what? I want to fear that possibility. When I stop fearing it— I’m in grave danger.” So how do you deal with your carnal appetites? The only way is to make God’s Word your code of conduct and refuse to compromise. And if you need a role model you won’t find a better one than Jesus. He said, “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves” (Mt 16:24 NIV). Each day, look for an opportunity to deny yourself in some small area. You’ll be surprised how hard it is! But the payoff comes later when you need to deny yourself in a big area of life that has much more riding on it.

"I don’t want my testimony for Jesus Christ to be shattered by a single moment of indulging my flesh".

A GLASS WALL, GOD’S KINGDOM AND LUKEWARM CHRISTIANS WRITTEN BY: HOSANNA DAVID

As I worshipped in a church service on the 22nd October 2017 I had a revelation. I saw a thick wall of glass. It was between the kingdom of God and a congregation of church members. The worshippers were so happy. I could see the happiness in them. Some of them even touched the glass wall. They could see the kingdom of God through the glass wall but it was impossible for them to pass through the wall into the kingdom. They were happy, feeling no sense of being alienated from the kingdom of God. They had so much confidence that they would definitely make heaven but they were being separated by this huge glass wall. Sadly, they were holding unto a false hope. Then I heard the voice of God saying, “My children are being deceived. They think that being religious and active in Church without a holy and righteous living they will make Heaven. Now, tell them that it is my nature that no evil person enters my holy kingdom. I have spoken and I have been speaking. Many pastors are deceiving my Church that my grace covers their sins, and that I no longer care about the life they live.

THE DEMONS BEHIND LUST, SEXUAL IMMORALITY AND INDECENT DRESSING The Spirit of the holy God woke me up as I was sleeping on my bed. God asked me to write down what he wanted to reveal to me. God spoke to me and revealed these things to me and commanded me to share them with His Children and the world as a whole so that man can be enlightened about the tricks of the Devil. It is God’s will that all men be saved but it lies within our will to choose to obey or not.

But I beg everyone that accesses this message to amend their ways and make their ways right with God. In so doing, they will be able “…to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand” (Ephesians 6:11-13).


WARNING ABOUT SENSUAL DRESSING, WORLDLINESS AND DEMONS God spoke to me and said, “Satan lives on earth with his fallen angels. They are trillions in number. They are everywhere, especially where my fire is not burning. Demons love indecent dressing, especially sensual dressing. “Son, every worldly person on earth is inhabited by demons. This is because worldliness quenches my fire and drives away my Spirit from those who are worldly. Anyone in whom my fire does not burn is a habitation of demons. Most people on earth that house demons in their bodies are deeply ignorant that demons live inside of them.” At this point the Lord showed me in a vision a young man who works in a state-owned transport company. There were demons living in his body. Then the Lord said to me “this young man is not aware of the presence of these demons living in him”. The Lord further revealed to me the source of the demons living in him and their activities in that motor park. The Lord then spoke to me and said, “Just as this young man is ignorant of the presence of the demons in his body, so also many people on earth are ignorant of the presence of demons in their bodies.”

HOW SATAN PROMOTES SEXUAL IMMORALITY After that, the Lord spoke to me and said, “My son I will show you how these demons promote sexual immorality. Sensual dressing attracts demons. Many of the clothes the children of men wear today glorify Satan and promote the activities of the kingdom of darkness. Satan promotes anything that promotes sexual immorality and carnality. This is because the best worship Satan loves is when he is worshiped through sexual immorality."

There is nothing that can defile a man more than sexual immorality. High levels of sexual immorality, especially deviant ones, are evidences of the heavy presence of demons and demonic spirits. I God hate sexual immorality. It is the reason I destroyed the first earth with flood in the time of Noah; including Sodom and Gomorrah. Men in Noah’s generation became defiled when they slept with fallen angels. I could not stand the sight because man became dehumanized. I had to destroy man except Noah and his family. “Demons and demonic spirits hang around and live in those who do not carry my fire. When a woman dresses in a sexy way, demons are attracted to her. These demons do the work of seduction. A spiritual concoction could be rubbed on the woman to make her look more attractive. “Though some people who are agents of darkness on special assignments know they are equipped with the demons of lust and sexual immorality, many of those who are being used as agents of lust are not aware of the presence of these demons in their lives, their activities and the covenant that accompanies it. “The spiritual concoctions rubbed or invoked into those who are being used by such demons make some of their body parts or all their bodies to look attractive by emphasizing on the seductive features of their sensitive body parts, hereby making them to look more sexually appealing and seductive.

''These demons could concentrate attractiveness on some parts of the body like breasts (or cleavage) buttocks, hips, lips, eyelashes, Mons pubis and body shape. ''


LUST, DEMONIC ATTRACTIONS AND POSSESSION “These demons also pay close attention to see if anyone will lust after them in their hearts. When a man lusts after someone under demonic possession and manipulations, the demons are aroused and are attracted to such a man. The demons look for “legal grounds” to possess the man that lusts after their victims. They say, ‘We are one with the one you desire to be one with (through sexual union). Since you lust after her (and our properties in her), you equally desire us because we are one with her already.’ Some of these demons can gain entrance into the life of such a man, if he continues to lust after her deeply in his heart.” (Please not that if a woman lusts after a man that is equally possessed with such demons, the results would be same as described above).

SATANIC BEAUTY SURGERIES The Lord explained to me that there are satanic human agents that who undergo spiritual surgeries in satanic kingdoms to beautify themselves beyond their natural looks, and appear extremely sexually attractive physically. “Many of the things that make satanic agents to look sexually attractive are invoked into them, while others are embedded through spiritual operations in theatres and laboratories in the kingdom of darkness. This is to empower them to work out lust, sexual immorality and other satanic purposes. These operations are purely spiritual. The commonly used weapons are serpents. Serpents are under the control of the principality called Leviathan. These serpents (or other things) are located in some strategic parts of the body. In girls, serpents could be concentrated in their buttocks. When they wear seductive clothes these serpents are activated the more.

These creatures wriggle and twist themselves in her when she walks. With the help of transparent, light, tight, revealing and demonically dedicated and demon possessed wears, seduction becomes easier. Seduction could be reduced if such one wears a flowing gown or skirt. The essence of many females wearing tight, transparent and light wears like trousers, short skirts, gowns and shorts is to boost sexual attractiveness, not necessarily to make themselves look beautiful. Many of my children even enjoy the admiration and sexual lust of men than my praise and admiration of their virtues, spiritual and physical beauties. “Some even devised means of movements that can enable the shaking of their buttocks, breast and laps. This is why they cannot do without seductive wears because these wears help them to achieve their aims of seduction. Anyone who lives this lifestyle is a cheap material in the devil’s hand. It does not take long before demons extend their influence and control over such one.

'' My son, tell them that except they repent they are on their way to the eternal Fire of Hell.'' CHRISTIANS WHO LIVE IN IGNORANCE “If they live and work for me on earth I will reward them in the portion of my Son but it they live and labour for the devil, my enemy, they will be rewarded in the lot of the devil whom they served!


“Many shall say, ‘I was doing these things in ignorance’, but I shall answer them that I no longer leave any man in ignorance after the Death and Resurrection of my Son Jesus Christ. My Son, in the time of old I overlooked but now repentance is a command from me.” “Many of them in my House think they are serving me but my MARK OF OWNERSHIP IS NOT UPON THEIR FOREHEADS!

WARNING TO PARENTS WHO SEXUALIZE THEIR CHILDREN “It pains me for parents who prepare the beds of sexual immorality for the children by laying a wrong and sensual foundation for their innocent children.

Many parents are helping Satan to remove the thick wall between the dressing that is modest and that which is sensual. The foundations are drastically being destroyed. Truth is trodden underfoot! Never! It will not be long anymore, my appearing is near! Very near!”

“Many shall say, ‘I was doing these things in ignorance’, but I shall answer them that I no longer leave any man in ignorance after the Death and Resurrection of my Son Jesus Christ.

PEACE AND HOPE IN THE MIDST OF DESPAIR With the outbreak of Covid19, there has been great pressure on many individuals both young and old. Many people have experienced loss of jobs, and or income. We all know somebody who has been directly or indirectly impacted by Covid19. Stress and anxiety levels are at a great high and many are looking for Hope.

It’s been truly a tough time, but praise be to God that we have Christ our Hope of Glory. (Colossians 1:27 "To whom God was pleased to make known how great for the Gentiles are the riches of the glory of this mystery, which is Christ within and among you, the Hope of [realizing the] glory.") As children of God we might experience all the heartaches and stresses of this world,

but we are not like people of this world. We have assured PEACE that surpasses human understanding. Peace is not the absence of trouble, but the presence of Christ - Sheila Walsh. We have to keep reminding ourselves of this great reality. The word of God speaks about Jesus being in a boat with his disciples.


At a point where there was a great storm, we are told that their boat was tossed to and fro in the waters. The disciples began to fear and went down into the enclosure of the boat to seek for Jesus, at their dismay they find him sleeping. They wake him up, asking if he does not care that they perish. Jesus was sleeping in the midst of the storm, not because he was ignorant of the storm. The presence of the storm was not disturbing to Him because in the kingdom which He lives in, the King (God) is in absolute control. When He wakes up and after He silenced the storm, He asked them “Why are you so afraid? Do you still have no faith?” (Mark 4:40). Praise be to God that we have NO reason to be afraid. No, not even Covid19 is a worthy reason to spark fear in any of us. We have Faith, the Faith of God. We are strengthened by His presence and the Peace that comes with His presence. If you find yourself anxious and distressed because of this season and time, Fear not. Remind yourself of God’s love and let the PEACE of God overshadow you. It’s a kind of peace that does not make sense, and that it the beauty of it.

Indeed we can do nothing without Him. So during these times, look unto Jesus the author and finisher of our Faith. He is present at all times and His name is a fulfilled promise! (Emmanuel – God with Us!) The word of God clearly indicates to us a recipe for disastrous times and seasons, “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, shall guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. (Philippians Lets keep the Faith, embrace His peace and Hold of to Hope. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law. Galatians 5:22-23 (NAS) .

Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” (Matthew 19:26).

''We are strengthened by His presence and the Peace that comes with His presence.''


I Hear His Whisper . . Give me your time In my love you are able to do all things, for I strengthen you with my love. People make demands on your time and your thoughts, but I wait for you to come and draw you closer when you choose me above your friends and family. Come as my dearest one, and I will give you grace for your dearest ones on earth, so you may show them my love. When you give me your time, I give you my strength. Are you feeling weak today? Then come before me until you are bathed in power. Sit in my presence and come back to the truths I will remind you of. No human being can empower you, for their weapons are puny and helpless. Trust in my strength, not in the affirmation of others. Watch me work in your heart as you spend time in my presence. As you sit with me and unite your heart with mine, you will be filled with all you need to touch the world. Then I will pour you, full of my love, out upon the earth as my gift and my treasure.

Psalm 27:4 The Passion Translation Here’s the one thing I crave from Yahweh, the one thing I seek above all else: I want to live with him every moment in his house, beholding the marvelous beauty of Yahweh, filled with awe, delighting in his glory and grace. I want to contemplate in his temple.

ARE YOU WORTH YOUR WEIGHT IN SALT AND LIGHT??? MINISTER KARABO

God gave us life and life in abundance. He gave life so that we can be alive. He gave us life so that we can fulfil the purpose He has for us on this earth. He gave us life so that we can bring life unto others as well. Sadly, these days, the children of God are the “walking dead”. They do not know what they are living for or what their purpose on this earth is. In these insane times they don’t know what they are living for. So, I want to ask you dearly beloved - Yes You, who is reading this! WHAT ARE YOU LIVING FOR? What are you living for? Are you living for the money, are you living for the fun or are you living just to die? Are you living for the fame, are you living for your title or are you living for Jesus Christ – The Hope of Glory? For the Bible recalls in Mark 8:35 (NIV), For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake and the gospel’s will save it. Indeed, to live is Christ and to die is Gain. The Bible recalls that as we are the children of God each and every one of us are the Salt of the Earth and the Light of the World. Do some self-introspection and determine whether really are you worth your weight in Salt and Light.

Matthew 5: 1 – 16 Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted. Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth. Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled. Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy. Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God. Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God. Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you. You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot. You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.


ARTICLE

When you look at the above verse – it first talks about the beatitudes then follows with the salt and light section. This clearly shows that before you can be the salt and the light you need to have the above mentioned characteristics. But why did the Lord Jesus choose specifically the “salt”. He could have chosen sugar, flour or anything else but he chose “salt” specifically. Well let’s look at some of the well-known characteristics or uses of salt: Salt is mostly used to preserve food. It is used to season food to make it tasty. It can be used as medication e.g. sore throat – you mix it with water and gargle. When a lot of it is eaten it makes one thirsty for water. You see, each and every one of us has their purpose here on earth but all of us have one mission which is to preach and proclaim the good news, to go ye therefore and make disciples and baptize them in the Name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Your job as the Salt of the earth is to go out there and make people thirsty for the Living water which is the Living Jesus. It is written in John chapter 4 that “Jesus answered her, If you knew the gift of God and who it is that asks you for a drink, you would have asked him and he would have given you living water”. As you read along it further says that Jesus said to her, Everyone who drinks of this water will be thirsty again, but those who drink of the water that I will give them will never be thirsty. The water that I will give will become in them a spring of water gushing up to eternal life. Instead of drawing people to the living water where they will never thirst again – we draw them away from the water where they will die of thirst and hunger. Sadly, in the recent times the salt has become tasteless and the light is getting dimmer! Why?

CONTRIBUTOR

Is it because: We do not fully understand who we are? We are living to impress the society? We make ourselves holy yet when we go out the door we tend to serve two masters? We have conformed to the patterns of the world yet we are still going around saying we are “set apart”. Set apart from what because what we should be set apart from is what we are actually in union with? If you look at the church of Christ today – it is very heart-breaking. There is no love, no peace, no unity, no spiritual growth, no progress, no support. Instead there is hate, backstabbing, gossip, fights, plotting against one another, spiritual death. How do we expect the world to know the light of God while as we are the light we are actually the ones bringing darkness? How are we supposed to add some seasoning to the world (be the salt) while we are actually the ones letting the world overcome us? The salt is becoming tasteless every second and sadly the tasteless salt is of no use. What will happen to it as per the book of Matthews 5:13 is that it will no longer be good for anything except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot. Is it really worth ending in that state? Is it really worth gaining the whole world and losing your soul? Today, our beloved brethren go to church with the hope of getting comfort and love that they need but what do they get there when they arrive? It’s all pain instead of gain, it’s all demotivation instead of motivation, it’s all hate instead of love. Instead of having body bearers – we have body destroyers. Instead of being our brother’s keepers, we are our brother’s killers! Instead of praying for each other, we laugh at each other. For how long will this continue? What happened to having a clean pure heart?


ARTICLE

You know, prayers may be done and prophecies spoken out but if the heart is not right with God or pure then nothing will ever progress. It is written in the book of Proverbs that “Guard your heart – for everything flows form it”. The book of Matthew further states that “but the things that come out of a person’s mouth come from the heart and these defile them.” Be aware of what comes out of your mouth because it does not only affect you, the 2nd party but it affects your forth coming generation. The light of the world – are we really - with what is happening recently and all around us? The Church hides it’s light to satisfy colleagues, friends, associates, partners, family and the world at large. What is it that will be gained by doing that? Why are we living to impress the creation (people) the Creator (God) created instead of the Creator Himself? One wise man once told me that as we are the children of God we are like iron used for ironing clothes. I did not understand it then but I do now. An iron (Child of God) straightens out (through the gospel and deeds) wrinkled clothes (people who are challenged, spiritually dead, sick, in pain, needing comfort etc.). But before it can do so it needs to be plugged in the correct socket and the socket should be switched on. These days we are unable to fulfil that purpose because of being plugged in the incorrect socket. We are unable to be worth of the weight we should be in terms of salt and light. It is time to go back to the basics. It is time to go back to the first love which is the love of Christ. It is time to go back to being worth the weight we should be in salt and light. This can be done in simple ways: Repentance Imparting and impacting what God has blessed you with Walking in the footsteps of the one whom you are following

Do what Jesus would do with reference to Matthews 25: 42 – 43 o Feed the hungry and give to those who are thirsty something to drink o Clothe those who need clothes o Care for those who are sick o Show love and care to those who are in prison etc. When you are worth your weight in salt and light – there will be a different kind of seasoning in the way you walk, talk, keep, eat, think, act, live, dream, preach etc. In conclusion – Being salt of the earth and light of the world does not go by just mere uttering from the mouth because you are at church on a Sunday for that period of time carrying a bible so people can see you and how you worship and praise God. It is deeper than that – it goes with actions and your heart. Food for thought - Do some selfintrospection as you read the below questions: Is your life transparent so that the light of Jesus Christ can shine through you? Does your life have the flavour that only God’s grace can impart?

A Willing Participant by Dr André and Jenny Roebert Hebrews 11:17 (AMPC): “By faith Abraham, when he was put to the test [while the testing of his faith was still in progress], had already brought Isaac for an offering; he who had gladly received and welcomed [God's] promises was ready to sacrifice his only son...” Abraham was called a friend of God because he was always a willing participant of His plans. The truth is he trusted God to always keep His promises. Abraham knew if God was going to have Isaac as a sacrifice, He would raise him to life again – because Isaac was the promise God’s nation would be birthed out of. So he willingly went through every step of God’s plan, fully confident that whatever God did would certainly work towards a glorious outcome, and he was ready to be a part of that plan. And that’s exactly what God was doing. He never intended for Isaac to die that day. He was creating a type and shadow of what was to come. Sometime in the future, God’s only begotten Son would be a willing sacrifice for a new people to arise – God’s own children. Abraham brought Isaac in faith, God the Father brought Jesus to our world in faith too. What God was willing to do, His friend Abraham was willing to do also. You and I can choose to come on board, as Abraham did, as willing participants in whatever God wants to accomplish through us – because we trust Him. Just as God chose Abraham to be His friend, Jesus said He chose us and calls us friends. Today, be a willing participant, as you trust Him to work His glorious outcome through you.

SATANISM

INFILTRATING THE CHURCH SATAN GOES TO CHURCH! “I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the SYNAGOGUE OF SATAN” (Rev. 2:9)...

The above are the very words of Jesus Christ to the Churches in and Smyrna Philadelphia respectively.

“Behold, I will make them of the SYNAGOGUE OF SATAN which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie” (Rev. 3:9)

Satan had always tried to infiltrate the Church of God right from time. He succeeded in infiltrating the perfect relationship Adam and Eve had with-

God and made it sour. Just the way he does today. Daniel interpreting the dream of the King described two different opposing kingdoms mingling unsuccessfully.


This revelation is one of the first eschatological revelations in the Bible on Satan’s infiltration of the Church: “And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay (Daniel 2:43).

The Church of today (because of the numerous “wolves in sheep clothing”) is one of the most corrupt institutions of the world.

There is no Scriptural evidence to support the belief that a person can be a genuine believer in Christ and yet without the Spirit. The Apostle Paul wrote, “But if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to Him,” and “all those who are being led by the Spirit of God, these are the sons of God.”

Having laid the foundation stone of our completeness in Christ, we must now ask ourselves a very important question: “To what degree can we identify with the many statements in the New Testament that describe the Spirit’s life and power in the life and ministry of the early church?” Jesus promised His disciples that the Spirit would flow from their innermost being like rivers of living water, and He commanded them to wait in Jerusalem until they were clothed, arrayed, or

that our completeness in Christ is not grounds for passivity, nor does it suggest that what we have in Christ does not need to be appropriated. In other words, we may possess many things in Christ that are not full or present realities in our lives. Do all believers possess a certain degree of the knowledge of God?

If we have pardon in one respect we are to ask for a fuller sense of it; and if we have the Holy Spirit so that we are quickened, and saved, we do not ask for Him in that capacity, but we ask for His power in other directions, and for His grace in other forms.

WASHER


YOUNG DJ L.A. WORLD TOUR By: Rabbi Schneider

Don’t Waste Your Wilderness “Now these things happened to them (Israel) as an example, and they were written for our instruction, upon whom the ends of the ages have come.” 1 Corinthians 10:11 As we study the history of Israel, God leads them out of Egypt then through the wilderness for 40 years. Also, consider this, Jesus comes out of the Jordan River (Baptized by John) and hears the Father’s voice saying to Him: “You are My beloved Son, in You I am well-pleased.” Mark 1:11

Father God feeds us with revelation knowledge and with deep spiritual impartation as we call out to Him, depend on Him, and walk with Him, hand in hand, through our own wilderness experiences. Beloved one, Don’t Waste Your Wilderness. I want you also to consider that Israel was in the wilderness for 40 years. It was not just a short thing. They had 40,000 meals and slept 14,000 nights in the wilderness. It took a while for God to accomplish in His people what He intended for them—their own Promised Land.

Afterwards, He was immediately led by the Spirit of God into the wilderness, where He fasted for 40 days and 40 nights while dealing with the devil.

Don’t Waste Your Wilderness—God has great plans for you!

Beloved, the pattern is no different today. Before Father God brings us into our fullness, we must first go through our own personal wilderness experience. There are things that Father God can only do for you there. Often, the deepest things that we receive from Him will come when we are the most dependent on Him.

“…We were burdened excessively, beyond our strength, so that we despaired even of life; indeed, we had the sentence of death within ourselves so that we would not trust in ourselves, but in God who raises the dead” 2nd Corinthians 1:8, 9 Like Israel, God also brought Paul through his wilderness experience. Father wanted Paul to learn to depend only on Him so that he could walk in the power of the Spirit and receive Father’s blessing.

It was only when Israel was in the wilderness for 40 years that they saw, every single day, the Spirit of the Lord manifest in the center of their camp as a glory cloud by day and as a pillar of fire by night. It is no different today.

Let us look to Paul:

So beloved, keep your faith in Father and keep praising Jesus in your wilderness. Trust that Father is doing something wonderful in your life.

verse of the month


SHE WILL BE MADE READY

WORDS BY: DIANA PULLIAM

God’s given this message in response to the many prayers being submitted for strength and courage in this hour. This post will be a little longer than normal as the Lord wants His people to prepare their hearts for what’s now at the door. There’s much fear and trembling in the camp of God. Many, having put their trust in the arm of the flesh; and watching it fail, are awakening to the fact a veil of deception was indeed cast over the church as a whole (see ‘Do Not Leave Your Stations’). Yes, our God’s sovereign over all; and He sets up kings and brings them down (Dan. 2:21). But He shares His glory with NO man!

A hard truth is that God indeed gives us the desire of our heart. Sadly, the desire of the Church has been for God to send a human king to deliver her; to protect and ease discomforts so we can resume our “normal” lives in the midst of this wicked generation.

Much of this fear is because many know they are not ready, and asking, “How am I to handle what’s coming?”

Saints, it’s time to examine our hearts before God. Jesus said His Kingdom is not of this world, and neither are His people. If we truly want the Kingdom of God established on the earth, then our cry will be for THE King of kings and Lord of lords to return and be seated upon His throne!

The Lord’s referring to His Remnant Church, the spiritual temple of God on the earth. He will finish His work in Her.

But as stated above, there’s much fear and trembling in the camp of God as events unfold around the earth.

Brethren, beginning the middle of December, 2020, the Holy Spirit repeatedly told me, “She Will Be Made Ready!”

In December, 2019, I was awakened with these words: “The Bridegroom Shall Suddenly Come to His Temple.” “There Will Be No More Delays!” “My Temple is made without human hands.” “I am going to fill My Temple with My Glory!”


This is a very reassuring and exciting Word. The Lord’s telling us His Temple will be made ready, and He’s going to come suddenly and fill it with His glory! Saints, a final cleansing/ purification must now take place to prepare the Temple to receive His Glory, just as was done in Israel’s day in the preparation of the physical temple. Soon coming events and situations will act as catalysts to ignite the “fire” needed to burn up remaining impurities and dross within His temple. The Lord’s spoken to me for some time, that the day would come when certain leaders within the “church,” which are nothing more than modern day Pharisees, will mislead their congregations and twist the meaning of Romans 13. Friends, that day is upon us!

We know judgment begins with the house of God. A dividing line has been drawn by God, and the division has begun! It appears a major “plumb line” is going to be: are Christians to obey the government(s) of this world – or God? Paul made it clear in Romans 13 that we are to be subject to governing authorities; that in fact there is no authority except from God. In verse 3 it states, rulers are not a terror to good works, but to evil. But what happens when such governing authorities flip this upside down and begin terrorizing the good – calling it evil, and calling evil good?

As we know, this has been the case many times in history, and is encircling the globe today. The Word of God makes plain what’s to be done at such times. Daniel and his three friends would not obey the mandates of the king to bow down to his image, nor pray to it. They refused to obey the governing authority at the risk of losing their lives. Throughout the New Testament, and to this day, when the followers of Jesus do NOT obey the governing authorities to stop teaching and speaking in the name of Jesus, they oftentimes face dire consequences of imprisonment and/or martyrdom. In Acts 5:2729, Peter sums it up by saying we’re to OBEY GOD RATHER THAN MAN. This division in the church is coming fast and hard, and there will be no middle ground. As it was, so will it be again. The modern pharisees will again be moved with fear of having their empires taken –

because of these “radicals” rocking the boat and turning the world upside down (Acts 17:6). These religious leaders will be used as mouth pieces of the devil, preaching obedience and submission to the kingdom of darkness. But praise be to our God; His sheep hear HIS VOICE, and the voice of another they will NOT follow! As the Remnant rise up and walk in the ways of Jesus, they’ll obey God rather than man; they’ll speak as they hear Him speak, and do as they see Him do; because as he is, so are we in this world (1 John 4:17).

Summation: The Lord wants to encourage His people in this hour. We’re being told to prepare our hearts for great deception, division, and persecution as judgment falls upon the house of God. The coming events will act as a final fire to complete the purification and cleansing of His spiritual temple – preparing Her to be filled with His Glory!

Look Up

THERE’S HOPE There’s hope, joy and faith all around us. These three things gives us the courage we need to muster up the strength to keep on going. To show up despite the hardship, to share the love of Christ when we aren’t at our best, to encourage and uplift those in need, and to become the best version of ourselves. A life with Jesus is promised of hope, joy, and faith. It may not always feel this way, but it is true. I love to take walks with God at my favorite park, and one day while walking it began to rain. The sky was gloomy and the long branches and leaves that hovered above me made it seem even darker. But then I looked up! I was so fascinated that I had to capture the moment. What I saw gave me the courage that I needed to fight my battles before me. I saw God’s light piercing through the darkness. His light shone through the grey sky and lit up where I stood. It was a reminder that in good and bad times God’s light will always be our hope. His light will pave the way and make every crooked place in our lives straight.

W H E N R E V E L A T I O N S T O P S , M O V E M E N T S T O P S 'APOSTOLIC ORACLES' epistle by: Prophet Joseph Yamkela

A

All secular and religious institutions are being shaken. The economy throughout the world is being shaken. All that is not of the Kingdom will be shaken because it is not aligned with the Kingdom of God. Nuclear disasters and terrible acts of nature are in complete chaos. Diseases increase. The world needs answers. The state of the church is on the rise with seeker-friendly churches that are anti-power and that reject the things of the Spirit. These churches do not have the answers this world needs. The only solution is the movement and outpouring of the Glory of God.

We are transformed from glory to glory; this is the reason it is called a movement.

“And we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his image with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.” —2 Corinthians 3:18

To move in the power of God is not a gift, it is the glory of God. When a movement is based around a man, the movement will die when he dies; but when it is based on God, it will remain.

The Movement of the Glory of God “Movement” is a thought of God in motion. Revelation is the direction the movement moves towards. When revelation stops, movement stops. You can’t go beyond the revelation you have. Movement comes from the sovereignty of God, not out of man. It is not the anointing of a person, but God himself. It operates beyond faith, beyond the anointing, and beyond the gift of a man.


Prayer gives the movement power. The enemies of the glory of God are religion and spiritual conformism.

Time for Change and Transformation The greatest tragedy of life is to lose the Presence of God and not even realize it. When you are stagnant, the presence is lifted. The equivalent of transformation is change, and the essence of Christianity is to be transformed. If you remove transformation from Christianity, only religion will remain. No religion has the ability to transform the heart. When we are not transformed, we lose relevance and stop being an active part of the body. When a Christian stops being transformed, he returns to religion. But Jesus conformed to our image so that we might be transformed to His image. The maturity of a Christian is measured by his or her change. If we stop being transformed, we stop maturing and growing. Everything we conform to becomes our reality.

What is transformation? The purpose of transformation is a change of heart. When the heart remains unchanged, everything it holds will pour out.

“For out of the heart come evil thoughts—murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false testimony, slander.” —Matthew 15:19 This is a difficult message to preach because to be changed in the heart, we need to make a decision. Many have conformed to sickness, sadness, religion, or the past, but today is a day of change. People don’t want the glory of God because it requires change—this is a movement of change. Isaiah, a prophet of God, exercised his functions in his old age, and when he had an encounter with the presence of God, he recognized that he needed change; that he was a man of unclean lips. The first thing you must do when you are transformed is to abandon your “self” or ego. Every time you are transformed in an area, your innocence comes back. This is what Adam had in the beginning: Innocence. This is why God wants to change your heart. When you are transformed, God becomes your supreme reality. Many hide their lack of character behind a gift, but in the presence of God, you are who you are. You cannot hide nor pretend.


Christ was perfect, but he became sin. That was His first transformation. Then, for three and a half years, the disciples saw Him operate under the anointing, until He took them to the mountain of transfiguration where He transfigured to his original state. Since He was perfect, He was able to change from anointing to glory.

Why do we need change? When we cease to be transformed, our flesh becomes our reality. We cannot see beyond what our flesh perceives. There is a great movement of God taking place, but we cannot perceive it. The greatest problem a religious person faces is the inability to perceive or to discern that it is time for change. When we exhaust every resource and continue standing still in the same place, change is urgently needed. When frustration comes with a present situation. God releases spiritual hunger for Him and for His presence, which nothing else can quench. If you have lost your hunger, you’re stagnant.

Change is the enemy of the old guard.

They prayed for revival, for the presence, and for the glory of God, but when these came, they rejected them for religion. When change comes, you will lose relationships because they continue in the old faith.

Obstacles of Change Rebellion and stubbornness The ego or “self” Pride Religion Disobedience A hardened heart You cannot change beyond your submission to God. The time to choose is now. Do you want the same as yesterday or do you want change? Do you stay with religion or do you choose transformation?

How does change take place? Through the renewing of the mind: Romans 12:2. Sadly, religious people do not see the importance of change because they have conformed. Change comes by your spiritual diet; from milk to meat—or revelation. Let the fivefold ministry impart over your life.


You need to break away from your environment. Many have conformed to people, places, religion, sickness, poverty, depression, and circumstances. Break away from that environment! Have a heart of repentance, like Isaiah. Speak to God. Repent of religion, disobedience, pride, and all that has held you back from allowing God to change your heart. Take a moment, and let the Spirit of God do what He wants to do for you.

Now that you have allowed Him to bring a change to your heart, He is ready to bring change into every area of your life: your finances, business, church, and home. God will continue to take you from glory to glory!

Bless the LORD, Adon Olam, and Bless Yourself Do not let the enemy torment you with negative thoughts and negative vain imaginations about the future. Rebuke his torturous lies and curses off of your life. You were created in love to shine, so arise to bless your life with thoughts and words that oppose his negative reports, accusations and prophecies of doom. Satan will unceasingly infiltrate our minds with his bad reports about ourselves and about the unknown details of our future. But God, our Creator, knows all the details of our life – past, present and future, for He is Adon Olam, Master of the universe. He is the One at the wheel with the master plan and master blueprint for our lives. He loves His children with deep, perfect unconditional loving care. Although He does uncomfortably stretch us to conform us into His beautiful, glorious image, He also supernaturally provides everything needed to transform our broken, imperfect existence into a life of joy in Him.

Your loving Father will never leave you nor forsake you, and He is faithful and true to carry the load that you give Him. Today, now, give Him your load. Will you release all negative deeds, thoughts and inner oppressions into Jesus? In thought and spoken words rebuke the torturous negative lies, thoughts and curses today, through the Blood of the Lamb, Yeshua. Bless yourself – bless your body, bless your situation, bless your endeavors, bless your loved ones, and pray for those who oppose you. Retrain your brain with positive thoughts and confessions which express trust in the plan Adon Olam has for your life, and transform your world into spiritual blessings beyond measure.

Cynthia's Letters


THE BLESSED LIFE TEACHINGS BY: PASTOR ROBERT MORRIS RESPECT FOR ABEL Then the LORD spoke to Moses, saying: “Speak to the children of Israel, that they bring Me an offering. From everyone who gives it willingly with his heart you shall take My offering.”

The principles of tithing, the firstborn, and firstfruits are biblical and eternal. Aligning you life and actions with them can’t help but bring God’s blessing. We find a great example of this in Genesis 4: “And in the process of time it came to pass that Cain brought an offering of the fruit of the ground to the Lord. Abel also brought of the firstborn of his flock and of their fat. And the Lord respected Abel and his offering, but He did not respect Cain and his offering. And Cain was very angry, and his countenance fell” (vv. 3-5).

Notice that the passage says, “and in the process of time.” In other words, Cain grew his crops and the, “in the process of time,” got around to bringing an offering to the Lord. The implication is that he didn’t bring his first fruits to the Lord. Could that be why God did not respect Cain’s offering? I believe so. Abel, on the other hand, brought the firstborn of his flock to the Lord, and God accepted his offering. There is a lesson in this for us. God is looking at our hearts when we give. And when we give of the first of our firstfruits or our tithe, God receives and respects that offering. The tithe is your first fruit. The tithe must be first! The Bible is clear on this matter: “And all the tithe of the land, whether of the seed of the land or of the fruit of the tree, is the LORD’s. It is holy to the LORD” (Leviticus 27:30)


I once heard Mike Hayes, pastor of Covenant Church in Carrollton, Texas, use an excellent illustration of this truth:

This is the essence of Paul’s message in Romans 11:16: “For if the firstfruit is holy, the lump is also holy; and if the root is holy, so are the branches.”

Now, if I had ten one-dollar bills to give away and asked two specific questions about them, I suspect most Christians would get the first one right but would scratch their heads at the second one.

There are so many blessing that go along with tithing, but it is the principle of putting God first and the principle of faith that initiates the blessing. It is the trigger.

Imagine, I’ve given you ten one-dollar bills and have laid them out on a table in front of you. Now, my first question is, “How much is the tithe on this money?” I think everyone would get that one right. The tithe on $10 is, obviously, $1. But here’s the more difficult question. Which one is the tithe? “Obviously, the first one,” you might say. But which one is the first one? Is it the one on your left or is it the one on your right? Let’s say you get paid on Thursday and immediately pay all your bills, then buy groceries, and then write your tithe check before going to church. Have you tithed the first of your increase? No. Is it possible to give a full 10 percent and still not be tithing in accordance with God’s principle? Absolutely. For understanding, let’s go back to the onedollar bills. Which dollar is the tithe? Let me tell you how to decide that. The tithe is the first one spent or given. The first money that you spend represents your firstfruits. In other words, when you get paid, the first check you write should be the tithe check. Is it really an act of faith to give 10 percent after all your other bills are paid? What does it say about our priorities when we willingly pay everybody else first and then see if there is enough left to give God His portion? The first portion we spend should be the tithe. That is the firstfruit. And according to Exodus 13, that first portion is the redemptive portion. The first portion has the power to redeem the rest.

The first portion is the portion that redeems the rest. The first portion carries the blessing. That’s why you don’t want to give the first portion to the mortgage company. Unfortunately, it seems that many Christians fear the IRS and the mortgage company more than they fear God. Another way to say that is, we respect them more that we respect the Lord. The tither say, “Yes, I have a stack of bills here, but I’m going to give to God first and trust Him to bless the rest of the ‘lump.’” There was much more at stake than money when Abraham offered his firstborn son, Isaac. You’ll notice that Abraham didn’t wait to see if he had ten sons before he gave his first one. Nor did God go to Abraham when he only had Isaac and say, “After you have had four or five more sons, I’m going to come to you and ask you for one of them.” No, God asked for the first when one was all he had! Abraham had only the promise of having more sons. It took faith for Abraham to offer Isaac. And faith is precisely what tithing requires. It is giving God the first, in faith. When God asked for the firstborn lamb, you had to give it in faith, with only the promise and hope that the ewe would produce more. Many people say they’re putting God first, but true tithing is where the rubber meets the road. It is where we walk what we talk. If you tell me that God is first in your life, then let me see your checkbook. Then we’ll really see who’s first in your life. Will it say the mortgage company is first in your life?


Does it say the car company takes a higher place on your list of priorities? Or is it the clear testimony of your spending patterns that God is first? When Satan comes against you with fear and says, “You’re going to go broke your marriage is going to fail, you’re going to get a disease,” you can firmly reply, “No, I’m a tither, and because I tithe, The Bible says that God will rebuke the devourer for my sake. Yes, for my sake! God is first in my life, and God is going to redeem and protect everything else in my life!” Please keep in mind, I’m not proclaiming the truth about tithing because God needs money; I’m delivering these truths for you sake. God doesn’t need you to give – you need to be blessed. My heart is broken for the Body of Christ because of our lack of understanding of these principles and our failure to walk in God’s blessings. My heart breaks because much of the Body of Christ is living under a curse as a direct result of stealing from God. I counsel people all the time who are struggling, having conflict in their marriages and strife in their homes for this very reason. They don’t understand that the firstborn, the firstfruits, and the tithe belong to God.

Imagine what God’s people could accomplish on the earth if His people faithfully gave Him the first 10 percent so that the remaining 90 percent is redeemed and blessed? Imagine the plans and purposes of God that could be advanced in this world if the church would wake up to the blessings that come as a result of having the faith to give the firstfruits! Oh, if only God’s people would put Him first in their lives!

FOOD FOR THOUGHT The opposite of faith is fear. Satan uses fear to keep us from being financially faithful. And when he attacks you with fear regarding tithing, it is important to have a plan of action to abolish his attempts.

Would you rather try to make it through life with 100 percent of your income – but all of it cursed? Or would you rather try to make it through life with 90 percent of your income and all of it blessed, redeemed, and protected by God?

God Is Faithful by Dr André and Jenny Roebert 1 Corinthians 1:9 (AMP):"God is faithful [He is reliable, trustworthy and ever true to His promise-He can be depended on]..." There may be times we think God isn't answering our prayers as we expect Him to. This by no means indicates that He isn't faithful. We may not fully understand why things happen as they do, but one thing we can settle on, is that God is faithful and will always honour His Word concerning us. Sometimes, believers change their doctrine and make excuses when things didn't turn out the way they expected. But we are warned in 1 Timothy 1:4, that this only leads away from the truth and compromises our faith. It says to not "...foster and promote useless speculations and questionings rather than... leaning the entire human personality on God in absolute trust and confidence." Sometimes we are meant to cooperate with God to see the promise fulfilled. God promised to save Noah and his family, but Noah and his sons had to build the ark. God promised He would deliver the Israelites from slavery in Egypt, but Moses had to confront Pharaoh and closely follow God's instructions to see that promise fulfilled. Trust the Holy Spirit to reveal your role in seeing His promise fulfilled in your life. Don't let unbelief get in the way - God always honours His Word!
