DESCRIPTION

Several years ago – in 2007 – I did a podcast on the material contained herein. A prophecy!

We are NOT yet in the vertex of the end times; However, we are in the first stages of the End Times.
What to LOOK FOR from religious leaders and from governments and what TO DO in these days in which we live.
Just think about these recent attacks against Christians:

Students discriminated against in public schools by administrators and teachers

Catholic nuns & Christian businesses targeted for refusing ObamaCare coverage

Christmas cards and wrappings – and carols – banned for Veterans by Obama VA

AN END TIME KEY TODAY:
PERSECUTION IS COMING
THE FIRST STAGES

When you hear of wars and disturbances, don’t be terrified, for these things must happen first, but the end won’t come immediately. Then he said to them, Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be great earthquakes, famines, and plagues in various places. There will be fearful sights and great signs from heaven.  [Luke 21:11]

But before all these things, they will lay their hands on you and will persecute you, delivering you up to synagogues and prisons, bringing you before kings and governors for my name’s sake.  [Luke 21:12]

_____________


EDITOR’S NOTE
:

Synagogues here used refers to religious houses of worship, which can include churches. In other words, religious (but NOT born-again) so-called Christians persecuting REAL Christians.  A sign to watch for – an End Time KEY – will be the religious establishment persecuting the Body of Messiah. This does not, however, exclude non-believersother anti-Christian groups from the persecution, also. The thing to realize is that there will be persecution and arrests done … “for my name’s sake.” People will think they are doing God a favor, but maybe the real reason is that they have a form of Godliness, but hate and deny the REAL power tof God

_____________

The original word for fearful sights in verse 11 above is from the Greek phobetron, (pronounced fob’-ay-tron) which means terrors. This rare word phobêthra is only used here in the New Testament. It is from phobeô, to frighten, and occurs only in the plural as here.

To scope, or micro focus, on this segment (verses 11 and 12) of a larger range of scripture dealing with the end times (Luke 21) we can see clearly that BEFORE the terrors and great signs from heaven will come a period of time where many of God’s people will be arraigned, detained, or arrested to appear in either synagogues or prisons . . . even before presidents, kings, and rulers of nations for a testimony.

The advance by ISIS Hell-bent on world Islamic domination should NOT be a surprise to anyone who knows that the Quran teaches Muslims to murder Jews and Christians. A quick, but knowledgeable, study of Islam and Its Teachings will show you the foolishness of Islam.

We can see that Christians (at least in the Western world) are NOT at the vertex of the end times yet because of what Jesus taught in verse 12. However, in Islamic countries and in Africa today Christians are being murdered, beheaded, crucified and churches are being burned. One of the Bishops I ordained into the ministry informed me three days ago that only 10 miles from his church and residence a village which is in his mission area was attacked by Muslims: the church was burned and many Christians were killed (with only a few escaped.)

Just this morning I received another request of prayer for Christian missionaries in Qaraqosh where ISIS told children to deny Christ and follow Islam. Every one of the children did NOT deny Yeshua (Jesus) and were murdered by the Muslims.

What should speak to us TODAY, however, is that in the (probably) not too distant future, leaders of nations (maybe both Islamic and Western nations), will have Christians incarcerated. The rise of ISIS terrorism and beheadings is not being addressed accurately in the media. It is an Islamic operation. If a person claims to be a Muslim, then they should read the Quran, which commands that Christians and Jews be murdered.

Right now, in the Western world, governments are imposing fines and also imprisonment on pastors for speaking out against things such as alternative (or, sinful) life styles.

When you read carefully the teachings I recommend at the bottom of this Ezine, you will see that we are in the first stages of the Last Days. However, it is important to recognize “waymarks” along the pathway, and to be prepared.

One of the most extraordinary documents in human history—the Bill of Rights — has come to an end under President Barack Obama. Derived from sacred principles of natural law, the Bill of Rights came to a sudden and catastrophic end when the President signed the National Defense Authorization Act (2012 NDAA Sec. 1021), which grants the U.S. military the “legal” right to conduct secret kidnappings of U.S. Citizens.

Section 1071 outlines the creation of the “Conflict Records Research Center”, where the unconstitutionally obtained information that the NSA has collected is compiled and shared with the Department of Defense.  The information, called in the wording  “captured records,” can be anything from your phone records, emails, browsing history or posts on social media sites.

This is all conducted completely outside the protection of law, with no jury, no trial, no legal representation and not even any requirement that the government produce evidence against the accused. It is a system of outright government tyranny against the American people, and it effectively nullifies the Bill of Rights. 

Just a FEW things to contemplate:

California churches forced by state to provide abortion coverage

Legal demand to obtain copies of pastor’s sermons (Houston lesbian mayor)

Systemic persecution of Christians by Muslims not showed by mainstream media

Messiah Jesus, speaking to His disciples in verse 12 concerning their being brought before kings and leaders, was partly referring to the great persecutions they would experience by the Romans in the early church era; however, in the grand scope of end time prophecy He was giving instructions as to what would happen before He returns to establish His Kingdom.  [See Luke 21:5-36]

What this microcosm of scripture shows us in verse 12 . . . “But BEFORE all these things” . . . is that we need to, as my blessed mother used to say, “Make hay while the sun shines!” I admonish you as an elder brother in Messiah Jesus, do whatever the Holy Spirit is leading you to do.

Seize the day!

Get rid of the weights that are holding you back from doing God’s will.

Buy up the time. Take advantage of every IDEA, RESOURCE, and OPPORTUNITY you have to reach people, and the world, for Messiah Jesus!

Satan hates anointed MONEY, anointed PEOPLE, and anointed TIME. Do NOT let people steal YOU, your MONEY, or your TIME. Spend time with God in the Word and prayer . . . listen to what He is telling you. Make the moves you need to on the chess board of life so that the Master may say of you one day: “Well done, thou good and faithful servant.”

Now, let me give you some recommendations. Here are four books to help you know exactly what’s going on and HOW to STRATEGIZE and WIN.

►►► Learn the material, teach it to others … share the victory.

HOW TO COMMIT MURDER
THE TONGUE AND THE TITANIC

I want to talk to you today about How to Commit Murder – or – The Tongue and the Titanic.

I used to live on my boat. It was a sloop and had excellent turning capabilities. Generally, the rudder of a ship should be 1/70th of the size of the hull. And, there is a formula used by naval architects to calculate the area of a ship’s rudder: AR = K x LBP x d (m2).


WORDS DETERMINE DIRECTION

The rudder of a ship guides it through the waters; it determines the ship’s directions. It is the same way with your rudder: your tongue. It guides your life and determines the direction you travel … plus it determines in great extent what comes into your life because you’re passing through those charted areas you predetermIned by your speech.

As a student of coastal navigation I learned to chart my sailing trips. In the same way you are charting your future as well as the present by what comes out of your mouth. The rudder of a ship is small compared to the overall size of the vessel; however, it turns the vessel wherever the captain of the ship determines. Our brother James tells us:

Look also at ships: although they are so large and are driven by fierce winds, they are turned by a very small rudder wherever the pilot desires.” (James 3:4)

King Solomon said, “Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit.” (Proverbs 18:21)

Death” words discourage: they are destructive and debilitating; they impair one’s strength and make weak or feeble.

Life” words encourage: they minister hope and potential; they provide encouragement and a reason for continued perseverance. If you want to win in life, make a decision to live … and to help others do the same with your words!

Your words influence direction for you … and for others. It has been said that a person has two voices: the one they use at home and the one they use with others. Example: Do you speak to your Rabbi or Pastor the same way that you speak to your spouse or your children at home?

Synagogue and church gossipers can hurt others with their words. Here’s another example: “Did you see what Melani wore last week?! She had 20 pounds of sugar in a five pound sack! And, did you notice the tattoo?!”

April 14-15, 1912, the British luxury passenger liner, Titanic, sank en route to New York City from Southampton, England during its maiden voyage. The vessel sank with a loss of about 1,500 lives. It’s rudder directed it into an iceberg.


WORDS ARE LIKE FIRE

Our beloved brother James – comparing the tongue to a ship’s rudder – also tells us, “Even so the tongue is a little member and boasts great things. See how great a forest a little fire kindles.” (James 3:5)Many times I have seen where thousands of acres of beautiful forest land have been destroyed by a small campfire.

The word used for “fire” in the original Greek language is the word “pur: which means more than just regular fire, it means “lightning.” Your words have the power to burn people!

In Psalm 52:2, King David shares, “Your tongue devises destruction, like a sharp razor, working deceitfully.”

In the Guiness Book of World Records – and confirmed by GPS – Craig Harrison of the UK’s Household Cavalry killed two Taliban insurgents from a distance of 2,474 m / 2.47 km (8,120 ft, or 1.54 miles) in November 2009. It took the 8.59 mm rounds almost three seconds to hit their targets, which were 914 m (3,000 ft) beyond the L115A3 sniper rifle’s recommended range. A third shot took out the insurgent’s machine gun. The rifle used was by Accuracy International.

I mentioned this “sniper kill record” to let you know that your words can kill worldwide. Fire can hurt other than through your tongue – it can hurt people through your fingertips – for example, through E-mail or social media.


WORDS MUST BE GUARDED

Benjamin Franklin said, “Slip of the foot, you can recover. Slip of the tongue, you may never recover.”

James also taught us, “For every kind of beast and bird, of reptile and creature of the sea, is tamed and has been tamed by mankind. But no man can tame the tongue. It is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison.” (James 3:7-8)

I know what you’re thinking. You’re thinking, “Well, if the tongue cannot be tamed WHY are you teaching on this?” My answer is, “Because we can learn to discipline ourselves.” That’s why James said that if we don’t stumble in our words (James 3:2) we are mature and able to “bridle” the whole body – a bridle directs a horse like a rudder directs a ship like a tongue directs a life.

Monitoring your words may seem difficult at first, but it will help you to progress in right living. Learn to speak well of others – even if they don’t speak well of you – because: 1. slander issues out of demonic, worldly wisdom; and, 2. God is the Judge.

I recommend you study my teaching, Don’t Let the Little Dogs Bother You (How to Shake Off Liars and Gossips) because it will help you to see immensely the inner workings of such evil.

Here are some keys to help you guard your words:

1. Learn not to speak rashly. Zip your lips!

2. Pick your battles. Know when to hold them and when to fold them!

3. Speak life. Be a minister of the sanctuary.

4. Sleep on it (even your emails). In the morning you may say: “Glad I didn’t do that.”


WORDS GO OUT INTO ETERNITY

For several years during the early 1970’s I lived a few blocks from Richard and Karen Carpenter – The Carpenters. One of my favorite songs they recorded was: We’ve Only Just Begun. (Listen to it in this podcast) We had a mutual friend, Jim White, who owned a stationery store where Karen Carpenter and I used to do business. (By God’s grace, I led the owner of that store to Christ at the counter one day and he became a wonderful Christian.)

Karen died at the age of 33 of heart failure caused by anorexia nervosa in the city of Downey (Los Angeles area) where I still have an office. She had struggled for eight years with chronic anorexia. Karen had been down to 79 pounds in weight, and started back up to 110, but died one year later.

What most people don’t know is this: A radio personality one time referred to Karen as “Richard’s chubby little sister.” Those words went out into eternity with Karen.

Words determine direction – they’re like fire – and they must be guarded. Words go out into eternity with blessing or cursing … with life or death.

CHOOSE LIFE!

DON’T LET THE LITTLE DOGS BOTHER YOU
~
SHAKE OFF THE LIARS AND GOSSIPS ~

I want to talk to you today about “Don’t Let the Little Dogs Bother You.” I delivered newspapers at the ages of 11 and 12. I would start collecting from the customers on Thursdays so I could pay my bill on Saturday morning and then buy a hamburger and go to the movies. Usually on the deliveries I would throw the folded newspapers onto the porches from the sidewalk. This was not always possible, so sometimes (especially when I wanted to collect money) I would have to go into the yard. Lots of times these yards were fenced because of mean dogs.

God always protected me. Near the end of my morning route, about sunrise, I had to go to a home where there was a very mean red English Chow. On the corner just before I would arrive at this house, a white Boxer (dog) would meet me and finish the route with me. The boxer kept the Chow from bothering me and hurting me.

The dogs that were the most bothersome were the little dogs. They would snap at my feet and legs and many times grab hold of my trousers with their teeth. However, I learned just to shake them off. I have found through the years that it is the same way in the Christian walk: shake the “little dogs” off. The “little dogs” represent the people who lie or gossip about you. When people lie or gossip about you, just shake them off.

Situations that arise where people gossip or lie about you are usually from either of two sources: a vindictive spirit or a spirit of jealousy. It may even be a loved one who performs such actions. What you have to realize is that the “instrument” – whatever or whomever is the channel through whom the attack flows – is just that: an “instrument.”

A “gossip” – a person who gossips – is defined as “a person who likes talking about other people’s private lives in a chiefly derogatory manner.” The Holy Bible also talks about “busybodies,” which in the original Greek means “to meddle, to work all around” and sometimes refers to the “curious arts” or the “works of Satan.” The devil is actually the source of gossip, whether true or false, and merely uses – or works through – the “instrument.”

It is interesting to note that the word “devil” is from the Greek “diabolos” and means “a traducer: one who attacks the reputation of another by slander or libel,” and is synonymous with “backbiter, slanderer, defamer.”

Especially egregious is the action of a Christian, one who claims to know Christ, who talks about another person in a defaming way, working around as a busybody – a gossip – about other people’s private lives. So repugnant is this action to the Lord that the Holy Spirit equates it to being a “murderer or a thief or an evildoer.” “But let none of you suffer as a murderer, or a thief, or as an evildoer, or as a busybody in other men’s matters.” (Brit Chadashah: 1 Peter 4:15)

A “busybody” includes someone who brings up material from many years past that is either non-relevant to today because of the BLOOD of Christ purging it … or is either false or an exaggeration. A “jealous” person is a person who is “envious of someone else’s achievements or advantages.” People are never jealous of you unless you are either doing more than they are or have more than they have (which can include “giftings” of God).

Here is a quote that sums up the picture very nicely: “Criticism, condemnation, and complaint are creatures of the wind. They come and go on the breath of lesser beings and have no power over me.” (Author unknown.)

My friend, remember to shake off the “little dogs.”

If people are jeaous of YOU – especially God’s People – it is usually because you have a strong gifting from God and the enemy of your soul is “stirring” them up against you to either discourage YOU or to get you to quit. Remember, it is the devil who is the source of the opposition and resistance, not the instrument – the people – he is using. Pray for the people.

Below are three (3) resources to help you in your work for God. You can NOT miss with these! This is a great way to confuse your enemies and bless those around you including the nations God will reach through you. Let that IDEA God has given you come to pass then let God anoint it for great works … and then – don’t stop with one success – go for repeat success. You can do it in the name of the LORD.

BINDING AND LOOSING
~ A MIRACLE PODCAST PRODUCTION ~

MUSIC / INTRO

A few years ago the LORD started speaking to me about “Binding and Loosing.” Although I knew the basic precepts of “Binding and Loosing” and had used those scriptural principles for years in situations dealing with spiritual authority, the LORD was impressing me to be more active and militant in the use of them.

Let’s first look into what the scripture says concerning this teaching of Jesus. After the Apostle Peter declared to Yeshua (Jesus), “You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God,” the Lord gave him KEYS as to how he would build His Kingdom. He told Shimon (Peter):

And I will give unto you the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven: and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.”
– Matthew 16:19 (NKJV)

A little while later – in teaching about dealing with problems in interpersonal relationships and also within the body of believers – Jesus said the following:

Assuredly I say unto you, Whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven: and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.”
– Matthew 18:18 (NKJV)

Interestingly enough, if we examine this passage in the original language[See Footnotes at bottom of show notes for language info.] Jesus probably spoke Hebrew in both of these passages as He was teaching His talmidim (disciples) and they were ALL Jewish, but the text was later recorded into Koine Greek (the lingua franca of the day) – we see an amazing truth. In the original we are reading literally: “Whatever you bind (or loose) on earth shall already have been bound (or loosed) in heaven.” The verb form reflects action that has been achieved in the past has now become active in the present. The past action refers to Messiah’s complete triumph on the cross-stake.

Now that we have discussed this important truth, let me share how God dealt with me. Shortly after the LORD began speaking to me to be more active and militant in “binding and loosing” I was flying to Cincinnati (USA) to teach at a seminar and miracle meeting. A Baptist pastor picked me up at the airport and on the way to the church we had to put the automobile on a ferry or barge to cross a river. The pastor and I were outside the car on the boat ferry and he began to tell me an amazing thing.

He told me, “God has been dealing with me about ‘binding and loosing.’” I had NOT told him that the LORD had been dealing with me about the same thing. It was a blessed seminar with the presence of the Holy Spirit. However, I soon forgot about what the pastor had told me.

Later I was in Africa for about one month and the LORD worked mighty in MIRACLES ad healings and salvation … opening doors for me to minister in many public schools. The gifts of the Spirit operated wonderfully and students were healed and saved. The same day I returned home, I received a message from a pastor who asked me to come to his home and minister to a young minister. He told me the minister had a mighty youth ministry but was discouraged because of people in the “false covering” movement trying to hold him back and control him. I said to my friend, “I just returned from Africa and need to rest. I will not come now, but if the LORD leads me to come minister to the young man I will call you.”

About 3 days later (which was the last day the young man would be in town … he lived about 1,800 miles / 2900 km away), God told me to go visit him. I called my friend and told him and he invited me to dinner that evening. During my visit, the LORD gave me a prophecy for the young man. I told him, “Go back and start a church!” That church has different campuses in two different states and I think over 10,000 members.

While visiting at the pastor’s house, before I left, he told me, “There are some people you need to meet.” Again, I mentioned that I needed some rest; however, the LORD told me: “Meet these people.” I invited the people to my home, and what a blessing it was. There last name was Morse, and one of them had written a book titled, Exodus to a Hidden Valley,, by Eugene Morse. (There is also a Reader’s Digest account of their ministry; however, it is “toned down” as they had to work in collaboration with the publishers.)

There were three generations of them visiting me: grandfather, father and son. The family (from oldest to youngest) had ministered in Burma (Indo-China) for 51 years (from oldest to younngest) and had been imprisoned by the Communists three times. There was lots of demonization and false religions in that area in Southeast Asia: the majority praciticing Theravada-Buddhism with some of the tribal people practicing animism and shamanism.

The Morse’s told me that they had labored almost without fruit – without people coming to Christ – for years. Then, the LORD told them to “bind” Satan and cast him out of the areas where they would be ministering. Immediately they started seeing people come to Christ. Then, the LORD instructed them to “loose” the Holy Spirit” into the areas where they would be ministering. After that, a great harvest of souls – people receiving Christ – resulted. As I remember around 65,000 people received the LORD and many were baptized in water. They labored for the LORD among the Lisu tribe and helped in the migration – the escape – of 1,000’s of Christians into and through the jungle.

_____________

THE KEY

 God is waiting upon you to to do the “binding and loosing.” He is wanting YOU to do your part and work with Him in intercession. When you do your part – binding and loosing – then the finished work of Christ takes effect … and what you have bound or loosed … will already have been bound or loosed in Heaven!

 _____________


So, my challenge to you is this: Take advantage of “binding and loosing.” Your leader, Jesus the Messiah, taught this. And remember, “Whatever you bind (or loose) on earth shall already have been bound (or loosed) in heaven.” Listen to God … and NOT men!

What is that GREAT thing you want to do for God? What is the deep stirring in your heart for ministry unto the LORD? Nations and unreached tribal groups are hanging in the balance: waiting for you to be the one who reaches them … or, who coordinates projects to reach them … in these Last Days.

I have selected three (3) books which will help you to know what is getting ready to happen in these Last Days, plus provide you with the enablement – the POWER and GIFTINGS – to get the job done. Here they are … just click on the image.

Now … YOU can reach the world for Christ. And remember, “binding and loosing” can be used for other than ministry. Learn to use it actively and militantly … just like the LORD instructed me.

ADDENDUM

Recently the LORD instructed me to start a new project for Him in the Kurdish language. One of the attributes of the Holy Spirit is to “show us things to come.” After the LORD had us start this project, the Kurds recently took over the oil fields and the city of Kirkuk in Iraq. It is prime time to reach Kurdistan (the northern portion of Iraq and bordering Iran on the east) with the Good News of Jesus. Amazingly enough, the two books shown above, Map of the End Times and Flow Chart of Revelation reveal the specifics of Babylon in Iraq and its prophetic significance.

As far as I know, years ago I was the first teacher to write on the specifics of how Babylon in Revelation is a literal city. (Many prophecy teachers have taught for years that Babylon represents Rome and the Roman Catholic Church.) The two books mentioned above clearly define the specifics. The Kurds are the ancient people known as the Medes in Bible prophecy and play a significant role in the destruction of Babylon. (Isaiah 13:17; Jeremiah 51:11; and Jeremiah 51:28-29).

FOOTNOTES:

1. Hebrew was regarded as Lashon Ha-Kodesh, the sacred language of the Jewish people. Independent linguistic evidence indicates that Hebrew was used as a common language during the late second Temple period. For example, J.T. Milik wrote, “Mishnaic [Hebrew] … was at that time the spoken dialect of the inhabitants of Judaea” (Ten Years of Discovery in the Wilderness of Judaea).

2. Koine is the Greek word for “common.” Koine Greek (also called New Testament Greek) was the form of the Greek language used from around 300 BC to AD 300.

HOW TO MAINTAIN THE ANOINTING AND BLESSING

“For thus saith the Lord GOD, the Holy One of Israel; In returning and rest shall ye be saved;
in quietness and in confidence shall be your strength: and ye would not.”  
— Isaiah 30:15

“And therefore will the LORD wait, that he may be gracious unto you, and therefore will he be exalted, that he may have mercy upon you: for the LORD is a God of judgment: blessed are all they that wait for him.”  — Isaiah 30:18

Verses 15 and 18 above in Isaiah Chapter 30 are the “bookends” surrounding the context of verses 16 and 17, which has reference to Judah’s trust in the swift horses of Egypt.
 
Many times we, as God’s People, seek after God for His provision, healing and miracles. However, after receiving the blessings of God in position, prosperity or prominence, we forget that it was God Who “brought us out … that He might bring us in” to our present position.

Forgetfulness … where we came from, how we got where we are, and Who brought us OUT that He might bring us IN … becomes manifest by a lack of heartfelt, sincere thankfulness. When we stop being thankful to the LORD for what He has done for us or what He given us, we then start trusting in the “swift horses of this world.”
 

Turning back — returning — from our flesh-like preparations (such as Judah’s embassage to Egypt) and ceasing — resting — from our non-anointed, non-directed visions and plans will result in wholeness and peace in our body, mind and spirit. Then we will have quietness and confidence again.
 
The LORD will wait so that He can be gracious unto us when we seek after Him again with a thankful heart, acknowledging that He, and He alone, brought us out that He might bring us in to a place of position, prosperity and prominence. When He is exalted again, He will have mercy upon us.
 
We are blessed when we wait upon the LORD. It is interesting that the Hebrew word here used in verse 18 for “wait” is the word “chakah” which is a primitive root with the idea of “piercing” or “adhering to” and therefore a “closeness of being by waiting upon.”

In returning and rest you will be saved. You will be blessed when you wait upon God.

HOW GOD WORKS FOR YOU – PART A

There are many ways God has to help you. Many times He or His angels are working ahead of time … or right on time … in unseen ways to deliver you, to prosper you, and to bring you into a place of super productivity.

Remember, God is FOR YOU. If you ever doubt this, look at the cross stake where Messiah gave His life as atonement for our sins. If, when we were God’s enemies, He loved us so much that He sent His only son to die for us, how much more, now that we are His friends, does He want to make us whole in every area of our lives.[Brit Chadashah: Romans 5:10]

God has every detail of your life covered. If you walk in constant communion with Him … if the Holy Spirit is your best Friend … and if you are involved in kingdom work, then you can expect His VERY BEST for you.

At times, the enemy may try to attack you through fear. Fear is a spirit. Fear is the opposite of love. God is love. Perfect love casts out ALL fear. “There is NO fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear: because fear has torment. He that fears is not made perfect in love.” [Brit Chadashah: 1 John 4:18]

Speak to the spirit (demon) of fear; take your authority over it, bind it in Yeshua’s (Jesus’) name and cast it back to the pit of hell. Use the Word of God against the enemy: “For God has not given me the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” [2 Timothy 1:7]

There are times when the devil would try to come against you with a protracted period of fear. This may, or may not, involve people, as agents of the enemy. This is a GOOD SIGN. This tells you that what you are doing … or about to do … is scaring the devil. The enemy is afraid. Since he is a liar, and the father of liars, then you know he is “bluffing you”. Don’t be afraid to “call his hand” just like you would in a game of poker. The difference is that you’re going to use your Heavenly Father’s resources (you have the BEST hand!).

In this kind of situation, do the following:

Fast.
Wait on God; listen.
Then do what God tells you.

You may not even have to do anything. The fast may take care of the situation itself. And, remember: If you walk in constant communion with Him … if the Holy Spirit is your best Friend … and if you are involved in kingdom work, then you can expect His VERY BEST for you. There are many ways God works for you and many of these are “behind the scenes” operations: “covert” if you will.

GOD IS ALWAYS READY TO WORK FOR YOU

“I will instruct you and teach you in the way you shall go; I will guide you with my eye.” [Psalm 32:8]

Realize that this promise is both “individual” and “corporate”.God is not only working for YOU, but also for those PEOPLE under your tutelage and leadership. He wants you to KNOW His deliverance, direction, and dynamics: for your sake, as well as the sake of those people under your watch care.

To make sure we are the recipients of His instruction, teaching, and guidance we need to be open to His leading and to be Spirit controlled. The verse immediately following the one above tells us, “Don’t be like the horse, or as the mule, which have no understanding, and whose mouths must be held in with bit and bridle.” [Psalm 32:9] This is why we need to be in God’s Word every day, talking with Him, listening, and sharing our faith with others: to have understanding of His ways and NOT going our own ways.

GOD WANTS TO WORK FOR YOU IF YOU WILL GIVE HIM THE GLORY

In the Tanakh, in the Book of Judges (Chapter Six) we read that the children of Israel did evil in the sight of the Lord; and the Lord delivered them into the and of Midian seven years. Then they cried out to the Lord and, as a result, God raised up a deliverer named Gideon. Gideon had a band of 32,000 people ready to go to war. But God told Gideon, “The people that are with you are too many for me to give the Midianites into their hands, because [your people] Israel will boast in a vain way saying, ‘Our hands won the battle [it wasn’t God]’.” [Judges 7:2]

GOD KNOWS HOW TO WIN YOUR BATTLE – JUST LISTEN TO HIM

The Lord told Gideon, “Whoever is FEARFUL and AFRAID, let him return and depart early … and 22,000 people returned; and there remained 10,000.” Next, the Lord told Gideon, “The people are still too many.” God then had Gideon separate the remaining people into two groups, depending upon how they drank water: if they bowed down upon their knees, or if they put their hand to their mouth and lapped the water with their tongues as a dog laps. God then told Gideon he would save them by the 300 men that lapped, and the other 9,700 were sent home.

GOD CAN GIVE YOU A SIGN THROUGH YOUR ENEMIES

That same night the Lord told Gideon to go down to the host of the enemy because he was going to deliver them into Gideon’s hands. The Lord told Gideon, “But if you are AFRAID to go down then take your servant with you and you shall hear what the enemy says.” One of the enemy soldiers had a dream and Gideon heard him tell another soldier about the dream. The soldier said the dream was about Gideon, a man of Israel, “for into his hand God has delivered us [Midian and all the host].”

That is exactly what happened! That night the Lord gave Gideon and his band of men a GIANT victory. Only 300 with Gideon and they defeated the Midianites and the Amalekites and all the children of the east who were in the valley like grasshoppers in multitude; and their camels were without number, as the sand by the sea side for multitude. [Judges 7:12]

Remember: one person plus God is a MAJORITY! Be watchful for those situations where God can invade the enemy through you and where God will receive ALL the glory! The Lord can use those situations to bring deliverance, prosperity, and wholeness to multitudes of people. And God will be glorified because everyone will know you could never do these things on your own: they are MIRACLES!

“But thanks be unto God, which gives us the victory through our Lord Yeshua ha Meschiach (Jesus the Messiah).” [1 Corinthians 15:57]

In the next teaching we will discuss more in detail how God works “behind the scenes” to bring mass deliverance of nations and groups of people. Pray that God will guide you into the ministry of “national deliverance”.

HEALING THE EMOTION OF SHAME

APOSTLE TALK – Future News Now!
with Prince Handley
WWW.REALMIRACLES.COM


Prince Handley


HEALING THE EMOTION OF SHAME

You can listen to this message now at: www.apostle.libsyn.com
NOTE: Click on the center of “POD” in the circle to listen or download … give it about a minute (sometimes more) to download.


DESCRIPTION:

The four types of shame.
How they are encountered.
How to remit and cancel them.
How to be healed and made WHOLE permanently.


HEALING THE EMOTION OF SHAME


Guilt is a reality. Shame is the emotion that tries to paralyze you because of guilt!

Isaiah the prophet tells us, “For your shame you shall have double; and for confusion they shall rejoice in their portion. Therefore in their land they shall possess the double; everlasting joy shall be unto them.” (Isaiah 61:7)

Shame in the passage above is the Hebrew word “bosheth” which means both the “feeling of shame AND the condition of shame . . . as well as its cause.” It can also include “confusion.”

But the GOOD NEWS is that God loves you, and when you relinquish the cause of the guilt in your life to Him, He will turn it around. You will be able to rejoice when the LORD has brought healing into the situation that produced the reality of guilt!

If that shame has been imposed upon you by other people, God will even turn it around and bless you back with DOUBLE [Hebrew “mishneh”] for the trouble and the confusion that has been caused.

Historically, this passage refers to Israel and their desolation of many centuries by foreign [gentile] powers; and their final deliverance, with the result of festivities, joy and blessing as part of Messiah’s reign when He returns. However, the principle embodied here is a universal principle of God: just as much as gravity, sowing and reaping, and laws of physics such as the displacement of water. However, to activate this principle, it must be appropriated by faith! It is a promise from the God of Israel.

There are many examples of shame experienced by people of God in the Bible. None of us are perfect: that’s why we need a Savior! Abraham sold his wife two times. Moses killed a man in anger. David committed adultery and murder. Peter denied Messiah three times in one night.

We see that Adam’s shame was manifested in hiding. In Revelation 3:18, Jesus admonished the Church at Laodicea to “. . . buy of me white raiment, that you may be clothed, [so] that the shame of our nakedness does not appear . . .”

There are several types of shame:

  • Adamic shame

  • Inherited shame

  • Actual shame

  • Imposed shame

Every one of these types of shame may be remitted, or canceled, by the atonement of Christ. The BLOOD of Christ paid for you and your sins, and provides healing for shame.

The verdict of guilt, whether real or imagined, is shame. It may be something inherited from Adam (who brought sin into the world as the federal head of the race); or it may be something inherited from ancestral, or family lines.

It may be actual shame, resulting from an action you have initiated. And . . . it may be psychological shame . . . real or false shame that people or demon spirits have tried to impose upon you, resulting in oppression, rejection, physical or mental sickness, and lack of production.

Jesus Christ bore your shame. Hebrews 12:2 tells us that our Lord Jesus despised the shame of the cross and his nakedness thereon, but went through it because of the JOY set before Him: that is, He saw YOU able to be made whole and to know God, with your sins forgiven and having eternal life, as the result of His sacrifice.

Jesus despised shame . . . and He despises it in YOUR life. He died for YOU so that you do NOT have to carry shame. He carried it for YOU!

He is alive to remit guilt and its resultant shame from your life today. You can appropriate the healing in His shed BLOOD for you by calling on Him today. Pray and ask Him to deliver you.

You can get back up . . . because He got back up!

RECEIVING MIRACLES FOR THE IMPOSSIBLE WORK

APOSTLE TALK – Future News Now!
WWW.REALMIRACLES.COM
with Prince Handley

Prince Handley

RECEIVING MIRACLES FOR THEIMPOSSIBLE WORK

(You can listen to this message NOW at: www.apostle.libsyn.com)

____________________________________________________________

DESCRIPTION:

In this show we discuss HOW to receive MIRACLES … real miracles … for that impossible work you have been wanting to do: the work that will impact the world. Also, two SPECIFIC messages TO and FOR you from God.

____________________________________________________________

RECEIVING MIRACLES FOR THE IMPOSSIBLE WORK

ALL THINGS THAT JESUS HAS ARE YOURS! BELIEVE BIG!

“He will glorify Me, for He will take of what is Mine and declare it to you. All things that the Father has are Mine. Therefore I said that He will take of mine and declare it to you.” [John 16:14-15]

Are you having trouble believing for GREAT THINGS – impossible things – in your life and ministry? How big can you THINK? How big can you ASK? Make sure your plans and your goals go BEYOND what you can do. When you enter the realm of impossibility, then you are in God’s realm: the realm of MIRACLES. Then, He will have to get the glory!

Don’t hesitate to BELIEVE BIG!

“Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above ALL that we ASK or THINK, according to the power that works in us . . .” [Ephesians 3:20]

Go ahead and START that new work for God . . . for His glory!

Kara ma siko tando.

Karika barundo sandai.

Tama karinda – ra kindi ruko!

Ba ku rando siko!

HERE IS THE INTERPRETATION OF THE MESSAGE IN TONGUES

You have left much, but not all.

Parts were taken, you did not leave them.

I have seen the secret place – which no man knows!

I will reward you!

HERE IS A PROPHECY TO ENCOURAGE YOU AND THAT WORK YOU WANT TO DO

I FINISHED THE WORK.

I came to be wounded in combat.

I shed my BLOOD and gave My life to HEAL the SEPARATION between God and man.

I defeated the enemy.

I bought you to God with My own blood.

You now belong to God.

You have My Word and the promises in My Word.

You have the Holy Spirit: the Other One Who empowers you and guides you into all truth.

You have resurrection power which assures your success, and even in failure restores you.

You have My Name. Use My Name to vanquish the enemy and to obtain MIRACLES, resources, and joy.

You have the ministry of the Holy Angels to help you and protect you.

FINISH THE WORK I have assigned you: short term and long term.

BE PATIENT.

BE AT PEACE.

AN IMPORTANT ASPECT OF SUCCESS IN YOUR NEW WORK FOR GOD IS THIS:

CONDESCEND TO MEN OF LOW ESTATE

I was in a church one time which consistently does lots of good work to help homeless and disadvantaged people. However, after the service there were three homeless men sitting in the lobby at a table but nobody was talking to them. A friend asked me if I would sit with them and talk to them. I was very glad to do so and had a wonderful conversation with them.

I wonder if lots of time we feel that just because we give money to charities or the homeless or other missions to indigent people that we are doing our duty. I wonder if we are really being a “friend to the friendless.” People like to be recognized . . . and they like to feel accepted. Jesus taught us, “As you would like people to do to you, do exactly so to them.” [Luke 6:31]

The scripture which contains the words the LORD spoke to me is Romans 12:16: “Be of the same mind one toward another. Mind not high things, but condescend to men of low estate. Be not wise in your own conceits.” The Greek word used here for “condescend” is the word “sunapago” and means “to take off together,” that is, “transport with.”

One time I was telling a friend, who is an executive pastor of a rapidly growing church, that I have about two inches of letters (not counting all the emails) requesting me to come hold seminars to train pastors and Christian workers and to hold miracle meetings. The other person told me: “You should get to know [name withheld] because he has lots of money.” I thought to myself, “Why in the world do would I want to know someone just because they have money?!”

Take a look at the several Bible versions I have listed below and see their translation and/or paraphrase of Romans 12:16, and what it means to “condescend to men of low estate.”

New Jerusalem Bible:

“Give the same consideration to all others alike. Pay no regard to social standing, but meet humble people on their own terms. [Do not congratulate yourself on your own wisdom.]”

New American Bible:

“Have the same regard for one another, do not be haughty but associate with the lowly; do not be wise in your own estimation.”

Revised English Bible:

“Live in agreement with one another. Do not be proud, but be ready to mix with humble people. Do not keep thinking how wise you are.”

New Revised Standard Version:

“Live in harmony with one another; do not be haughty but associate with the lowly. [Do not claim to be wiser than you are.]”

The Living Bible:

“Work happily together. Don’t try to act big. Don’t try to get into the good graces of important people, but enjoy the company of ordinary folks. And don’t think you know it all.”

The Good News Bible:

Have the same concern for everyone. Do not be proud, but accept humble duties [or make friends with humble people]. Do not think of yourselves as wise.”

I searched what different men of God in the past (and others) thought about this passage in Romans 12:16. I have listed them below.

“There is nothing that disrupts harmony as much as seeking glory, when every man detests a base estate, and ambitiously seeks to be exalted.” [Geneva Bible Notes]

“Be a companion of the humble, and pass through life with as little noise and show as possible. Let the poor, godly man be your chief companion; and learn from his humility and piety to be humble and godly. The term “sunapagomenoi,” which we translate condescend, from “sun, together,” and “apagw, to lead,” signifies to be led, carried, or dragged away to prison with another; and points out the state in which the primitive Christians were despised and rejected of men, and often led forth to prison and death.” [Adam Clarke’s Commentary]

“It does not properly mean to condescend, but denotes a yielding, or being guided and led in the thoughts, feelings, plans, by humble objects. Christians should seek the objects of interest and companionship not among the great, the rich, and the noble, but among the humble and the obscure. They should do it because their Master did it before them; because his friends are most commonly found among those in humble life; because Christianity prompts to benevolence, rather than to a fondness for pride and display; and because of the influence on the mind produced by an attempt to imitate the great, to seek the society of the rich, and to mingle with the scenes of gaiety, folly, and ambition.” [Albert Barne’s Commentary]

“Sympathize and associate with the poor, humble, afflicted, especially such as suffer for righteousness’ sake.” [Family Bible Notes]

“Desire not riches, honour, or the company of the great.” [John Wesley]

“Instead of seeking pre-eminence, we are to walk in lowly spirit like our Savior.” [People’s New Testament Commentary]

“Be carried away with (borne along with) the lowly things” . . . or . . . “with lowly men.” [Robertson’s New Testament Word Pictures]

I trust today we will all reflect on how our LORD would have us to condescend to men of low estate, and pray that we might please Him in doing so . . . continuously.

REMEMBER … GOD IS FOR YOU

Do not hesitate to BELIEVE BIG!

“Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above ALL that we ASK or THINK, according to the power that works in us . . .” [Ephesians 3:20]

Go ahead and START that new work for God . . . for His glory!

THE POWER OF A SEPARATED LIFE

APOSTLE TALK – Future News Now!
WWW.REALMIRACLES.COM
with Prince Handley

Prince Handley

 

THE POWER OF A SEPARATED LIFE

After I became a Christian I committed quality time to memorizing scripture. One of the key Bible portions I memorized was as follows:

“Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship has righteousness with unrighteousness? And, what communion has light with darkness?

Wherefore come out from among them, and you be separate, says the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you.

And I will be a Father unto you, and you shall be my sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty.” [2 Corinthians 6:14, 17-18]

I didn’t have to leave my friends when I became a Christian; they left me! When my lifestyle became different and my interests were focused in Godly avenues, there was no common ground. However, I still witnessed to my friends, and prayed for them, and loved them with Christ’s compassion. Thankfully, many of them are now Christians who serve the Lord, including my immediate birth family, uncles, aunts, cousins . . . and now all of my children and grandchildren.

What a beautiful promise! God will be a Father to us: He will protect us, provide for us, and be personal in His relationship to us. Do you want to have a REALLY CLOSE walk with the Lord? Then learn and practice the beauty of a separated life.

In this newsletter we will study the PURPOSE, the PRIVILEGE, the PROTECTION, and the PRODUCTIVITY of a separated life.

THE PURPOSE OF A SEPARATED LIFE

Why live a separated life?

“As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance: But as He which has called you is holy, so you be holy in all manner of behavior; because it is written, ‘You be holy, for I am holy’.” [Leviticus 11:45; 1 Peter 1:15-16]

THE PRIVILEGE OF SEPARATION

Why is it a privilege to live a separated life?

“For as much as you know that you were not redeemed with corruptible things, like silver and gold, from your vain manner of living which you received by tradition from your fathers; but you were redeemed with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot: who truly was foreordained BEFORE the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for YOU.” [1 Peter 1:18-20]

“According as He has CHOSEN us in Him BEFORE the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love.” [Ephesians 1:4]

THE PROTECTION OF SEPARATION

Living a separated life of holiness unto the Lord provides extra angelic protection for the believer.

“The angel of the Lord encamps around those that fear Him and delivers them.” [Psalm 34:7]

“Because you have made the Lord, which is my refuge, even the Most High, your habitation; there shall no evil befall you, neither shall any plague come near your dwelling. For He shall give his angels charge over you, to keep you in all your ways.” [Psalm 91:9-11 – read the whole Psalm]

“And he answered, fear not: for they that be with us are more than they that be with them. And Elisha prayed, and said, Lord, I pray thee, open his eyes, that he may see. And the Lord opened the eyes of the young man; and he saw: and, behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha.” [2 Kings 6:16-17]

Other examples: Daniel in the den of lions and the three Hebrew teenagers in the furnace of fire. These were Hebrews, who as teenagers had separated themselves unto God.

THE PRODUCTIVITY OF SEPARATION

Why is it productive to live a separated life?

“Let everyone that names the name of Christ depart from iniquity. But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and earth; and some to honor, and some to dishonor.

If a person therefore cleanses himself from these [the works of dishonor and iniquity], he shall be a vessel unto honor, set apart, worthy, competent and profitable for the master’s use, prepared unto every good work.” [2 Timothy 2:19-21]

The greatest blessing you can have on earth is to walk with God!

Enoch walked with God, and he was not found anymore here on earth because God took him. [Genesis 5:24]

Elijah walked with God, and when it was time for him to go to Heaven, he was taken up by angels in a chariot surrounded by fire. [2 Kings 2:11]

You say, “But Apostle Handley, these were SPECIAL people.” Yes, and so are YOU . . . if you WANT to be. They were special people because they wanted to be special people.

The question is: “Do you WANT to be SPECIAL?”

The Holy Bible shows us that Elijah was just like you and me. He had the same emotions, the same temptations, and the same faculties. “Elijah was a man subject to like passions as we are, and he prayed earnestly that it might not rain: and it rained not on the earth by the space of three years and six months. And he prayed again, and the heaven gave rain, and the earth brought forth her fruit.” [James 5:17-18]

As we approach the last days of Planet Earth and the return of Israel’s Messiah we should all the more want to live a separated life. The Apostle Peter told us ahead of time:

“But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of people should you be in all holy manner of living and godliness . . .” [2 Peter 3:10-11]

The Apostle Paul assigned Titus, a young preacher, the responsibility of pastoring and appointing elders in Crete and explained to him that it was profitable for believers to maintain good works. “This is a faithful saying, and these things I will that you affirm constantly, that those people who have believed in God might be careful to maintain good works. These things are good and profitable unto men.” [Titus 3:8]

Paul also taught Timothy, who he placed in charge of the church at Ephesus, that there is great gain in living for God. “But godliness with contentment is great gain.” [1 Timothy 6:6]

If we are going to live a separated life so that we will be prepared to be used by the Master, then we have to be like a soldier. “You therefore must endure hardship as a good soldier of Jesus Christ. No one engaged in warfare entangles himself with the affairs of this life, so that he may please him who enlisted him as a soldier.” [2 Timothy 2:3-4]

Holiness is the principle that separates the believer from the world. Holiness is a quality of personal conduct that consecrates us to God’s service. The Apostle Paul urged the believers in his day . . . and urges us today through the scripture . . . to walk in holiness and thereby please God.

“For this is the will of God, your sanctification: that you should abstain from sexual immorality; that each of you should know how to possess his own vessel in sanctification and honor.” [1 Thessalonians 4:3-4]

Notice, in the verse above, that YOU are to POSSESS your vessel: you are the owner . . . you are in control. Don’t say “The devil made me do it!” Don’t say, “I couldn’t resist!” Have you been struggling with a certain temptation? Then get on your knees and CRY OUT to God. Ask Him to deliver you and sanctify you. The Bible says, “Call upon me in the day of trouble: I will deliver you, and you shall glorify me.” [Psalm 50:15]

God is not dangling temptation in front of you to tempt you. “Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither does he tempt anyone.” [James 1:13]

God has made a WAY for you to exit temptation, but you have to WANT to exit! “There has NO temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted above that which you are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that you may be able to bear it.” [1 Corinthians 10:13]

In the original Greek of which this passage was written it is actually saying that God will do the same as cut a path through a rock for you to make a way for you to escape . . . IF you WANT to escape! Cry out to Him and He will deliver you! God loves you and wants to help you. He also wants to use you to help others!

God may allow you to be tested from time to time, but only to see if you are worthy of Him investing His future talents and gifts in you so that you can be used for GREAT WORKS. What if after you have been used greatly, you mess up and ruin your testimony? Or, what if you make God or His people look bad?

Set apart a time for prayer and fasting to consecrate yourself to His service. Pray for a consecrated life: a life set apart in holiness and separation so you can be a vessel unto honor . . . worthy, competent, and profitable for the Master’s use . . . prepared unto every good work.

The more you are in the arena and productive for God, the more you will be shot at! And there will be different times you will need to draw on God’s strength through prayer and fasting. But always remember, your best defense is a good offense. Keep reaching people for Christ . . . keep under the anointing!
