“The Fence Has Been Taken Down”

May 17, 2019
Today I want to bring up the subject of fasting. I have included a link at the end of this session that was done by Bill Bright Founder of Campus Crusade For Christ. Fasting can be for any amount of time or from any type of food or any type of thing. Fasting is in essence the quickest way to truly see yourself as God sees you. Fasting enables you to depend upon God when we are so used to depending on ourselves.

Some of Dr. Bright’s suggestions about fasting are:
• Fasting was an expected discipline in both the Old and New Testament eras. For example, Moses fasted at least two recorded forty-day periods. Jesus fasted 40 days and reminded His followers to fast, “when you fast,” not if you fast.
• Fasting and prayer can restore the loss of the “first love” for your Lord and result in a more intimate relationship with Christ.
• Fasting is a biblical way to truly humble yourself in the sight of God (Psalm 35:13; Ezra 8:21). King David said, “I humble myself through fasting.”
• Fasting enables the Holy Spirit to reveal your true spiritual condition, resulting in brokenness, repentance, and a transformed life.
• The Holy Spirit will quicken the Word of God in your heart and His truth will become more meaningful to you!
• Fasting can transform your prayer life into a richer and more personal experience.
• Fasting can result in a dynamic personal revival in your own life-and make you a channel of revival to others.

The link below is one that tells of all the different types of Fasts that you can do.

Fasting empowers your Holy Spirit to break strongholds. A Strong Hold is any area of your life that you are bound by. It could be an eating disorder, prescription medication, alcohol, pornography and a host of other devices. While awareness and programs can help THEY WILL NOT CURE YOU. It is only the power of the Holy Spirit that can break a stronghold. That is why many Christians have left the Holy Spirit to be a dormant part of their lives. They don’t know how to live BY the power of the Spirit.

Galatians 5:16-18 “So I say, live by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the sinful nature. For the sinful nature desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the sinful nature. They are in conflict with each other, so that you do not do what you want. But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under law.

Until I started to let the Holy Spirit lead me I always struggled with not gratifying the sinful nature even though I was saved and even though Jesus had crucified my sinful nature. That is the problem. We don’t live BY the Spirit. If I put up an invisible fence with a shock collar for a dog, the dog would learn pretty quick the boundaries. After a year I could take out that invisible fence and the dog would still stop where he or she is supposed to – the imaginary boundaries. That’s our sinful life.

WE HAVE BEEN SET FREE BUT WE STILL LIVE LIKE THE ELECTRIC FENCE IS ON.

When you fast and pray and seek the Lord He will reveal to you those hidden things and He will break those strongholds once and for all. This is a lot of material to digest so please take some time to review it. Then get with God and see what is the best fast for you. All I can tell you that God is excited for you to be coming in this way to meet Him. Major things will happen. When they do e mail me and we can testify to God’s greatness.

Have a great day. Live like you are free. Don’t let the devil steal another day of joy. The fence has been dug up a long time ago.

“Never Give Up Hope”

May 16, 2019
 Next week I am going to do a video series on the life of Joseph. It should be about 7 segments of 15-20 minutes each. I will post it on the devotionals I will be doing if you desire to view it. The purpose of doing this is for a number of reasons.

1. To have people who are afraid of the Bible understand the great messages and stories in it.
2. To show that at anytime, anywhere God can bring you from the depths of despair to the joy of victory and redemption.
3. That sometimes life from our perspective is not fair – But we don’t know the end of the story, God does.
4. How to be content in our circumstances
5. How to view the sin in our life and who we are actually sinning against – This is freeing and at the same time a sober reminder of why Jesus had to go to the cross.
6. How to handle family infighting and living in a mixed family.
7. Forgiveness

We know that Joseph prospered because God was with Joseph. Joseph was smart enough to know who is Savior was. But the same tools and power available to Joseph are also available to you and I. If you think you don’t deserve a blessing then Satan has you fooled. What Father would not love to pour out blessings upon His children? But sometimes we can have the love of a father but give in to the bully (Satan). Sometimes we forget that we cannot fight the bully alone but the One in us can obliterate that bully. Have you ever found yourself trying to fight the bully alone when you could call upon the ultimate warrior? I have and far too often.

God is for YOU. Always remember that.

Please pray for this video series that God would direct every frame and every word.

Thank you for your prayers warriors. So many wrote in yesterday about needing prayer. People are hurting. God knows the end of the story , we do not. Have hope no matter what the circumstances surround you now. God is working it out to perfection.

“Urgent Prayer Needed”

May 15, 2019
I felt the Lord urgently prompt me to have Warriors pray right now. I feel that some of you are going through a crisis or carrying a huge burden that needs to be lifted. If you are the one please know we are praying for you NOW. Many are praying for YOU.

God loves you enough to know that the battle is in the heavenliness, but so is evil. That is why we need to pray and take back territory that may be vulnerable. Hang on those of you who are weary and ready to give up or give in.

If you desire to share a prayer request please let me know whether just for me or to make it public. In either way know that God knows YOUR struggle. Warriors, please stop what you are doing right now and pray for the Lord almighty to heal, protect and redeem those who are suffering.

Thank you Warriors

“Never Worry Again Because….”

May 15, 2019
Last week a couple was attacked by a fellow hiker on the Appalachian Trail in Virginia. This hiker had been acting odd but most hikers stay to themselves. But late in the afternoon this hiker pulled out a machete and killed the man and severely wounded the woman. The woman tried to run down the trail to find someone even though bleeding severely. Luckily she made it. Most of the Appalachian Trail is in a remote place. If I camped with a number of people at night I had no worries from man or animal. But when too tired to go on I would just put up my tent off the trail. Before going to be I made sure I had my knife by my head. Most of the time you are too tired to fight off anyone that would try to harm you.

Now getting killed on the Appalachian Trail is much less likely than getting struck by lightning. But because it happened many people now will be wary of their surroundings. The calmness of nature will take on a different feel. When I went to grade school the worst thing someone did was chew gum in class. Now there are mass shootings. If I go see a movie I think of how I would protect my family if a gunman came in. Satan and his evil minions have infiltrated most of the space we live in. Should we be worried?

No and this is why? First of all this is not our real home. Secondly the day and time we are to leave this earth to meet the Lord has already been planned before, BEFORE, we were even born.

Jeremiah 1:5a ““Before I formed you in the womb I knew you,”

Psalm 139:16 “Your eyes saw my unformed body; all my days were written in Your book and ordained for me before one of them came to be.”

Isaiah 43:13 ““From eternity to eternity I am God. No one can snatch anyone out of my hand. No one can undo what I have done.” The LORD’s Promise of Victory “

So Warriors NEVER WORRY. God has you protected and He has a purpose for your life. When His time is up for you, you will see the Lord in glory. Until then, Satan and his demons cannot do anything to you that God has not first ordained. So please trust in God, read His word, meditate upon it and let it soak in like a dry sponge ready for rushing water into your soul. Then you will have Gods peace that truly does pass all understanding. Don’t look at your circumstances, just keep your eyes focused on God.

Take care Warriors

“How To Really Love Like The Lord”

Monday May 13, 2019
Have you ever felt that you are up one minute and spiraling down the next? Most of the books on the market today are those self-help books that tell us how we can make our SELF-better. Better looking, better at tasks, better at making friends, better at time management and on and on. What this has done is taken our abilities that God has created us to be and made this life about “Self ” instead of selflessness. Being on the fast track to something that has no end. It is just the fast track. It could be the fast track to riches or self-adoration. Take that away and you would not want to go out of your house. That is because what you do for a living is who you want people to see. That is who you think you are. No wonder we are messed up. So today let me give you a Paradigm shift.

What if you stopped looking at how good you could become and started giving yourself away? I am not talking about giving yourself away and letting everyone knowing it but giving yourself away for the purpose of leaving nothing behind when you leave this world. We would all agree that we cannot take anything with us when we leave our temporary tent. All the clothes, jewelry, nice cars, accolades will end and turn to rust. So if you take stock of your life right now what are you doing? Are you storing treasure in heaven or trying to make a name for yourself here on earth? Most of our anxiety in this life is from trying to masquerade as someone else. So what would it look like if we lived as Jesus asked us to live.

First of all you need to be saved as you can never fulfill the calling of our Lord Jesus in the flesh. It can only come by the power of the Holy Spirit directing you. If you are not sure if you are going to heaven you can today by watching this video on our website

So what would it look like if we lived as Jesus asked us to live?

John 13:34,35 ““A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”

1 Corinthians 13:1-3 “If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing.”

One of the keys to love is not boasting about what we do, what we have OR WHY WE DO IT. Jesus could have come to this earth and RULED with riches, political authority and an iron first. But He was of a different world, one that you and I will be part of when we believe and trust in Him.

Jesus says in John 5:30 “By myself I can do nothing; I judge only as I hear, and my judgment is just, for I seek not to please myself but him who sent me.”

First of all if you try to love in your OWN strength it will not be true love. If you seek to please yourself by loving, I say, to please yourself by loving others then that will not work. BUT, if you seek to please God by loving others then the love of God is in you. Then that power of the Lord that is in you will finally enable you to love others unconditionally.

“Lord please strip away all that we know about love unless it is from you. Help us to love as you love Jesus without thinking or asking for anything in return. Jesus please by the power of your Holy Spirit change us to be more like you every day. Please help us to throw off who we think we are and to be content with who we are in you. Jesus we want to love others the right way. We know that we can only do that in your mercy ,strength and power. Please help us yield to you today all that we are Jesus.” Amen

Now go forth today and expect great things. You are the child of the only true King.
