INTRODUCTION

Many of you reading the show notes―or listening to―this podcast have a select group assigned to you by God. That is, a group of people to whom you are responsible—to God and to them―for supplying the Bread of Life. If you have been called to the office of prophet, this information will help you to monitor, minister and manage effectively so as to position yourself for optimum stewardship of God’s gift in your life. Does it not stand to reason that the enemy of this select group does not want you communicating lasers of light―missiles of ministry―for the immediate healing and guidance of the select group to which you are responsible? This select group needs to know:

Where they’re at …
Where they’re going …
What’s happening today …
What’s happening in the future

PROPHECY AND STEWARDSHIP
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
~ A MIRACLE PODCAST PRODUCTION ~

WHY PROPHECY IS IMPORTANT

A prophet must monitor what’s going on in his or her area of assignment. If the area of assignment is international, then the observation, of course, is international and encompasses geopolitical happenings.

It is not always possible to know such information in the natural―even with the internet and social media―but it can be known supernaturally to those whom God chooses to reveal such happenings. This will include what is happening NOW … and what will happen in the FUTURE.

A prophet must be in a state of readiness at all times: ready to hear … ready to question … ready to speak.

Habakkuk lived in a period when his country had fallen from the heights to the depths with degradation in the legal system of the land. Remind yourself that this happened after Josiah’s reforms. How quickly we are to go from boom to panic. Governments―because they are made up of people―can be bipolar as well.

This reminds me of a poem I shared as part of my speech when graduating from engineering college and I was awarded the trophy for being the “Most Worthless Senior.” (Five years later, the Lord Jesus, Israel’s Messiah, made me worthy―He became my worthiness―when I received Him as my Savior and Lord.)

Our system is depressive manic. It runs from boom and then to panic.
In view of this it would be wise for government to stabilize.
Knowing the need for both … stability and economic growth.
And that constant, steady unemployment can often be a disappointment.”

I’m not sure, but I think that was from J. Sullivan Edwards’ book, Ride the Wild Horses.

MONITOR

Habakkuk is overtaken by the circumstances all around him. He thinks God has removed Himself from the affairs of man. Leaders are in control who do not serve God. The prophet says:

I will stand upon my watch, and position myself upon the tower, and will watch to see what God will say unto me, and what I shall answer when I am reproved.”  ‒ Habakkuk 2:1

Let me ask you a question: “Are you standing upon YOUR watch?” Are you listening to what the LORD will say? Today―more than ever―people need a word from God. Yes, they need to be IN God’s Word (reading and meditating), and they need the Word to be IN them … but they also need to hear specific rhemas―personal messages from God to them―directed by the Spirit of God in the timing of God.

The man I respected most for always having a word from God for people was a man named Dick Mills. He was an humble servant of God. He gave me in the course of his lifetime several prophetic messages―including Words of Knowledge from the Holy Bible―that were “spot on” and everyone of them came to pass. He prophesied to me and told me that I would have a ministry like his which came to pass.

We must monitor by knowing―keeping in touch―with what’s going on around us. But more importantly we must monitor by “standing upon our watch” and waiting upon God to speak―to see what He will say to us―about the nation and for the nation … about people and for the people.

MINISTER

To minister is to serve. Just recently, a lady I have never met, contacted me by email. This lady had read my book, Prophecy, Transition & Miracles. She told me, “The Lord told me to tell you ‘Keep your shoes clean.’” Now I know it must have been hard for this lady to say this. As a matter of fact she told me later she was afraid to tell me as it might offend me.

What she did NOT know is that recently I purchased a new pair of inexpensive shoes to wear with khakis or Levis. I always try to keep my shoes shined and clean. However, a day or so before this lady sent the message to me I was looking at my new shoes and thinking, “I should clean them.” But … I decided to put it off. Well, when I received the lady’s message (and knowing she didn’t know anything about me or my new shoes) I decided to clean them.

Wouldn’t you know … the very next day I was in a very important meeting where the shoes were very visible and it was very important that they be perfectly clean.
That may seem trifle but … it was IMPORTANT. And, it shows the importance of personal prophecy: NOT “kookie” stuff, but exact “laser directed” words from God that many times only the Lord knows what it is about. Personal ministry with “lasers of light” pinpointing in exactness the message from God for the people to whom you minister: those in your watch care or area of assignment.

Daily, remember to ask God for discernment over people, things and situations. Not all that glitters is gold … and not all prophecies that come to YOU are from God. I have “tons” of prophecies that have been given to me through the years, but I have hung them on the wall “so to speak” until I either knew in my heart―or received valid confirmation―that they were from God.

Just as we want to receive accurate words from God, so we have the responsibility to deliver accurate words to others in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

MANAGE

Habakkuk managed his activities so that he had time―he took time―to wait upon God. He positioned himself―by schedule and activity―to watch and see what God would say to Him. The answer he received from God has helped people for over 2,500 years. A prophet must realize that he or she―even if delivering a message to one person―may be influencing nations and future generations.

By God’s grace, I have spoken words that launched people into powerful ministries that multiply further because of the right message at the right time. YOU are an instrument of God. Guard this privilege with all your might. Manage your time, your resources and even your recreation so that your assignment from God―the people assigned to your watch care―do not suffer. A shepherd tends to the flock by feeding, healing, guiding and protecting. But … the shepherd must stay strong himself to be in condition. Your body is NOT your own … you have been bought with a price: with the precious BLOOD of Messiah Jesus. Therefore, glorify God in your body … and that includes the mental part as well.

It’s the anointing that breaks the yoke. The Holy Spirit is God’s agent on earth to supply the resurrection POWER of Christ. Honor the Holy spirit and He will honor you.

Habakkuk received the message from God that made it possible for him to rise above the circumstances. It was this:

“Behold, his soul which is lifted up is not upright in him: but the just shall live by his faith.” ‒ Habakkuk 2:4

Much of the misunderstanding concerning prophecy has to do with the lack of understanding the historicity of prophecy (the time frame in which the prophecy was delivered) and the purpose of prophecy. We need to understand the different elements of prophecy and their functions, such as:

Predictive prophecy.

Office of the prophet.

Gift of prophecy.

PREDICTIVE PROPHECY

Prophecies of old revealed in the Tanakh (the Hebrew Scriptures) may be categorized in two sections: “fulfilled” and “yet to be fulfilled.” The former need no defense: their fulfillment in detail is proof of their validity.  Analysis of current geopolitical events and relationships seem to “escort” many of the remaining unfulfilled prophecies. It is here that quantum physics and the office of the prophet MAY become synergistic at times. You may study in detail about this here:Faith and Quantum Physics.

OFFICE OF THE PROPHET

The office of prophet and seer are generally synonymous; however, what most people—especially theologians—don’t realize is that God is more than willing to SHOW His servants the road ahead. The Holy Spirit will guide you into ALL truth: spiritual, economic, relational and political truth. God many times will give a prophet a “feeling” or a vision that is panoramic and unfolding for cycles or events. For full teaching on this subject, go to“Prophets and Seers” where you can both read and listen by podcast. The purpose of this podcast-teaching is two-fold: 1. To describe HOW the ministry of the seer operates; and, 2. To warn you of Satan’s tools.

GIFT OF PROPHECY

The Baptism in the Holy Spirit is NOT the same as Baptism into the Body of Messiah. All followers of Jesus have the Holy Spirit (the Ruach HaKodesh); However, NOT all of His followers have the Baptism in the Holy Spirit. This Gift of Power is PROMISED to you. Plus … the GIFTS of the Holy Spirit. I have covered this completely … and in detail in my book,How To Receive God’s Power with Gifts of the Spirit.

This book shows you HOW to receive the Baptism in the Holy Spirit. You will learn what the Gifts of the Spirit are … and … HOW to OPERATE in the Gifts of the Spirit. There are many attributes of―and advantages to―the Gifts of the Holy Spirit operating in your life: in areas such as relationships, ministry, business, and personal. You will learn these in this book. But, especially, you will learn how the Gift of Prophecy operates through the believer in Jesus.

The Gifts of the Holy Spirit (including tongues) have NOT ceased since the time of the Early Messianic Community. If God’s People ever needed assistance by the Holy Spirit―and MIRACLE working power―it is NOW. As you prayerfully read this book, you can experience NEW power and productivity for the End Times.

THE BLESSING
YOUR LEGAL RIGHT
~ A MIRACLE PODCAST PRODUCTION ~

I want to help you to accomplish the impossible, to render null and void barriers the enemy would attempt to impose upon you, and to empower you to receive birthings: powerful, new ideas of the Spirit, and then to implement the ideas.

The enemy of all righteousness wants to impose barriers in your life and thereby restrict, as well as constrict, your productivity in the Spirit. These barriers can be mental, physical, demoniacal, and psychological. They can be real or imagined. The enemy may utilize people, demons, lies aimed at your mind, conditions, or relationships. Sometimes these relationships may even involve other believers.

If you know Jesus Christ and are baptized in His wonderful Spirit, you do not have to succumb to these oppositions and attacks. In 50 years of ministry I have found that many Christians are clandestinely held back from their maximum potential by not only a lack of stretching out in faith but also by focusing on the negatives instead of the positives. They are in defensive mode. Just as in sports, the BEST defense is a GOOD OFFENSE!

On the cross, Jesus (Yeshua) became a curse for us that we might receive the blessings of Abraham. Notice, the Messiah of Israel became a curse for us that we might be blessed. He took the curse that originated with Adam in the Garden of Eden. He took ALL curses that are encompassed by that disobedience of our first father: the first man, the first Adam.

The root of ALL curses on Planet Earth originated with the sin of disobedience by Adam in the Garden of Eden when he disobeyed God and obeyed Satan. When Adam did this, he relinquished his rulership of Planet Earth and yielded it to the Evil One. Notice, there is NOT a curse on earth that does NOT originate as a result of that ONE ACT of disobedience!

In Genesis Chapter 3 we read of a prophecy concerning the Seed of the first woman, Eve. Her seed would defeat, destroy, and subjugate the tempter, Satan, who deceived Adam in the Garden of Eden. This prophecy was pertaining to the 2nd Adam, the Son of God, who would come to delete the curse and install the blessing(s) which were already programmed before the foundation of the world: the BLESSINGS originating from GOD.

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. The BLESSING was PLANNED FOR YOU before God created the world.

SECRET: The universe was created for Planet earth, and Planet Earth was created for YOU! The ROOT of ALL blessing(s) ON EARTH – and ultimately in Heaven – was purchased by Christ FOR YOU on the cross through His shed BLOOD and thereby deleting the curse. Through His resurrection He installed the blessing.

It was the first man, Adam, who initiated the curse through DISOBEDIENCE to God. It took a man (the God man) to delete the curse through OBEDIENCE to God so that we (mankind) could be BLESSED.

In the window of time between the fall of man in the garden with the resultant CURSE – and the death and resurrection of Christ with the resultant LEGAL installation of the BLESSING – God made a WAY for man to APPROPRIATE His blessing(s). That WAY was the same process by which men, women, and children appropriate God’s blessing(s) today: the WAY of FAITH.

Enoch, Abraham, Sarah, Deborah, Joseph, Moses, Elijah, Elisha, Daniel … and many others … appropriated the blessing(s) through faith. Read Hebrews Chapter 11.

You can make things with your FAITH, my friend. “Without faith it is impossible to please Him.” (Hebrews 11:6) “Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things NOT seen.” (Hebrews 11:1) You can CREATE with your faith. Read my book, Faith and Quantum Physics.

FAITH & QUANTUM PHYSICS

In Genesis 12:1-3 God told Abram: And I will make of you a great nation, and I will bless you, and make your name great; and you shall be a blessing: and I will bless them that bless you, and curse him that curses you; and in you shall all the families of the earth be blessed. Later, in Genesis 22:18 God told Abraham In thy seed shall all nations of the earth be blessed. Because you have obeyed my voice.

The SEED of Abraham (the Messiah Jesus) became a curse FOR US that we might be blessed with faithful Abraham. The SEED (Messiah Jesus) broke ALL the curse(s) … even the ROOT of the curse(s) imposed in the garden of Eden with the resultant sin, death, effects of witchcraft, sins of the father, generational curse(s) … so that ALL people could be FREE from the curse(s) and be recipients of the blessing(s).

Christ (Messiah) has redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for It is written, Cursed is everyone that hangs on a tree, so that the BLESSING of Abraham might come on the non-Jews (Gentiles) through Jesus Christ. (Galatians 3:13-14)

Romans 4:13 tells us The promise that he (Abraham) should be the heir of the world, was NOT to Abraham, or to his seed, through the law, but through the righteousness of FAITH. Just as God works through FAITH, the enemy of your soul works through FEAR. The MIRACLES of God … salvation, healing, power, commissioning … all work through FAITH. The evil of satan … witchcraft, disease, spiritual impotence, confusion … all work through fear.

If you haven’t already, read or listen to the edition titled The Covering. The BLOOD of Christ is your covering. The BLOOD will protect you from the works of the enemy. The BLOOD of Christ is living. The life of God is in THE BLOOD. The enemy can NOT come beyond the blood line. In Revelation 12:11 we read: They overcame him (the devil) by the BLOOD of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony, and they loved not their lives unto the death. If the BLOOD is your covering, you are protected. Speak (declare) the BLOOD over yourself, your family, your property, and everything the Lord has placed in your hands and the domains over which you preside.

A good personal friend of mine, Rachmiel Frydland, who is with the Lord now, went into several Nazi concentration camps during World War II. Rachmiel was Jewish and he would sneak into the camps and declare the Gospel and then sneak back out. He prayed with many of his Jewish brethren who received Yeshua as their Messiah before they were murdered: some the very next day after he was there! One night he slept in a coffin to escape the Nazis. >>> I have placed a link to his testimony at the bottom of these shownotes. <<< I had the privilege to be in his home several times and to have wonderful fellowship with him. Rachmiel knew the importance of the BLOOD of Jesus.

Do not worry about any generational curses or curses from the bloodline of your relatives and forefathers. BREAK THEM with the BLOOD of CHRIST! Do not fear about some witch or someone placing a curse on you … fear is a tool of the enemy. The Holy Bible says, The curse causeless shall NOT come. If you have done something wrong then confess it to God, ask for forgiveness and cover yourself with the HOLY BLOOD of CHRIST.

You are God’s property and the BLOOD of Christ is your COVERING if you will declare it so in faith. Enjoin the blood of the covenant. Instruct THE BLOOD to be applied to yourself and situations BY FAITH. Prohibit the enemy and his people or demons from performing an action against you or your loved ones by your SPOKEN injunction of FAITH. It is a legal injunction purchased by the Lord Jesus Christ on the cross and imposed by your faith. ATTACH The Blood, JOIN The Blood, IMPOSE The Blood to yourself, your loved ones, and your situation.

Request of the Father in Heaven to cover you and your situation with the BLOOD of CHRIST. In the name of Jesus charge verbally the enemy AND his power to be broken off your life and in your situation. It is a direct command with authority. You have the POWER in the name of JESUS to exercise authoritative or dominating control or influence over the devil and his works of darkness. Jesus purchased this power for you, and commissioned you with this apostolic power to go:

1. Preach and teach the Good News;

2. Heal the sick, and

3. Cast out demons.

Be FREE from doubt; believe in the abilities and power the Lord Jesus has purchased for you by His death and resurrection!

You have been granted this power inherently by THE BLESSING from the administrative unit of the throne of Heaven. This is POWER delegated from Heaven to you! The blessings of Abraham are yours. You rule as a king in life through Jesus Christ.

Baruch haba b’Shem Adonai.

CREATIVE PROPHETIC DECREES – ORGANIC POWER IN THE SPIRIT

University of Excellence

Prince Handley
President / Regent

CREATIVE PROPHETIC DECREES
ORGANIC POWER IN THE SPIRIT

Geopolitical alignments and relationships are changing – and will change – dramatically from the Year 2016 and forward.
In the future, economic and political cycles will be less static and more dynamic and fragile but less cohesive.
Military alliances will shift, as will international and nation-state cohesiveness.
As a result, those called to the office of Prophet or Seer will have to “stand upon their watch” and listen to the Voice of the LORD for direction in prophetic sculpturing of the geopolitical and economic landscape to effect “shifting” favorable to the Body of Messiah and the Nation of Israel. They will be called upon … under the leading of the Holy Spirit … to utter creative prophetic decrees.

“Creative prophetic decrees” are decrees (pronouncements) that you prophesy in faith (based upon God’s word or the Holy Spirit’s leading or a Word of Knowledge or Word of Wisdom) for creative works.

You are creating movements and conditions … or actions …​ in the earth or governments or environments to:

  Build God’s Kingdom;

  Tear down or produce defeat and failure in the devil’s kingdom or among his workers;

  Produce MIRACLE happenings, changes or advancements for YOU or the Gospel – to “break forth” into NEW territories.

You are prophesying based upon what you know in the Spirit or God’s Word … and creating “assaults” or “infrastructure’ (either spiritual or physical) for spiritual impact.
Here is a great resource (BOOK) for you:  Prophecy, Transition & Miracles.
Your friend,
Prince Handley
www.realmiracles.org

P.S. – Right now we have several high impact projects ongoing concerning which you might like to partner with us.

    Israel outreach
    Every home distribution of our Portuguese Gospel tracts in a large area of Brasil
    FREE Prince Handley POWER books to synagogue, church and ministry libraries.

TRENDS, TIMES AND TONGUES

God is eternally young. He is NOT some old man with a long beard sitting in a rocking chair!

The Gospel is not only cross-cultural … it is omni-cultural. There is always ONE benchmark to apprise whether we are effectively reaching any culture: the cross. One time, after preaching to the usual mega audience, Billy Graham felt discouraged because he sensed a lack of power during the message. A close associate told him, “Billy, you forgot the cross!”

In the world, and nations in particular, there are many cultures and sometimes micro cultures. Within each culture there are subcultures. Sometimes these subcultures overlap national and ethnic boundaries. For example, age stratification: a specific example of which would be youth. The micro cultures within these sub cultures constantly change; some over long periods of time, usually in less civilized, less advanced societies.

TRENDS

An example of a micro culture would be the children in Western and some European cultures labeled Generation Y(or those attempting to emulate them). These are the children of Baby Boomers and fall into the age group of 9 to 23. They are also referred to as the Echo Generation or Millennium Generation. They are more culturally diverse than any other generation and they ENJOY that diversity.

Generation Y is about 60 million in numbers right behind the Baby Boomers who number 72 million; however Generation Y is extremely different. Many are from single parent families, or from families with two working parents … or a grandparent who is taking care of them. As a result they are usually financially responsible and more independent.

Generation Y spends more on consumer goods than Generation X, and because of their numbers, are the targets of major marketing strategies. They are STIMULATED by more information, and more options, and situations that require decision making. They are often accused of growing up too fast. What a PERFECT segment of society to reach with the message of the CROSS and then train to reach the world in these days before the return of Messiah.

Also, you should research the 13th Gen, America’s 13th Generation – born between 1961 and 1981.

TIMES

Sometimes culturally diverse societies have a commonality of access. For example, the Internet. As oppressive countries like Iraq and China find that Internet access is NOT optional if they want to do business in the global market, they have begun bringing the Internet into their geopolitical borders. Countries like China try to control free speech and thought on the Internet but that’s like trying to hide sugar from ants.

Dictators who have tried to control the dissemination of information via the Internet have NOT developed an effective counter measure … and are NOT likely to do so. The technology gap between keeping the Internet out of an oppressive regime and that regime surviving in the global market is fast closing.

Check this out. The Internet is ridiculed for its ability to quickly disseminate a “lie” … consider all the Spam hoax emails you’ve received. As helplessly as we try to eliminate Spam, so oppressive governments will NOT be able to”filter” out the TRUTH! Another PERFECT segment of society to reach with the message of the CROSS and then train to reach the world in these days before the return of Messiah. Think about it … and I suggest: ACT EXPEDITIOUSLY!

SUGGESTIONS

1. SEND EMAIL TO GOVERNMENT, TRADE, AND UNIVERSITY OFFICES ALL OVER THE WORLD TELLING THEM ABOUT THE WEBSITE AT WWW.UOFE.ORG

FOR EMAIL ADDRESSES LOOK IN TRADE JOURNALS, MAGAZINES, OR NEWSPAPERS. THE INTERNET IS ALSO A GOOD SOURCE. YOU MAY RECEIVE EMAIL ADDRESSES THAT ARE SENT TO YOUR WORK OR HOME, ALSO, THAT YOU MAY REPLY TO.

BONUS: SEARCH FOR EMAIL ADDRESSES IN ISRAEL.

MAKE THE EMAIL MESSAGE SHORT; ALSO, YOU MAY ONLY GET ONE CHANCE TO EMAIL BEFORE THEY “SHUT YOU OFF”; THEREFORE YOU SHOULD APPLY FOR A NEW EMAIL ADDRESS JUST FOR THIS ONE MAILING.

2. IF YOU DO A SUBSEQUENT EMAIL TO AREAS WHERE THERE MAY BE A CHRISTIAN ELEMENT THEN TELL THEM ABOUT “THE APOSTLES NEWSLETTER”. THEY MAY SUBSCRIBE TO THE NEWSLETTER AT: PRINCEHANDLEY@GMAIL.COM

3. OF COURSE, DON’T DO ANYTHING ILLEGAL, AND FOR SURE DON’T SEND “SPAM MAIL”.

4. YOU SHOULD ALWAYS GIVE RECIPIENTS AN OPPORTUNITY TO “OPT OUT” AT THE END OF THE EMAIL BY PROVIDING THEM AN “UNSUBSCRIBE” EMAIL ADDRESS, EVEN IF YOU’RE ONLY SENDING THE EMAIL ONE TIME.

5. IF YOU RECEIVE A REPLY ASKING FOR PRAYER OR SPIRITUAL HELP AND YOU DON’T KNOW HOW TO ANSWER, THEN GO TO THE “SEARCH” BUTTON AT THE RIGHT OF THE WEBSITE WWW.APOSTLE.LIBSYN.COM AND FIND YOUR ANSWER. FOR EXAMPLE, IF THEY ASK YOU A QUESTION ABOUT ANTICHRIST, JUST TYPE IN THE WORD “ANTICHRIST” IN OUR SEARCH SECTION. USUALLY YOU WILL HAVE SEVERAL ANSWERS TO CHOOSE FROM. SELECT THE ONE YOU LIKE, HI-LITE IT … OR COPY … AND PASTE IT INTO AN EMAIL TO SEND THEM AN ANSWER.

6. HERE’S TWO  EXAMPLES OF A SHORT, BUT EFFECTIVE EMAIL:

  •         STRATEGIES FOR LIVING IN THE LAST DAYS: WWW.UOFE.ORG

7. TAKE ADVANTAGE OF SOCIAL MEDIA: MYSPACE, YOUTUBE, FACEBOOK, LINKEDIN, TWITTER AND OTHERS. FOR 24/7 LIVE STREAM OF BLOGS, TEACHINGS AND PODCASTS, YOU CAN DIRECT THEM TO: WWW.TWITTER.COM/PRINCEHANDLEY

TONGUES

For creativity, power, wisdom, and direction pray in the Spirit. The Holy Spirit knows HOW to reach the cultures and micro cultures. He is their Creator! Also, the Spirit of God will anoint your project(s). The Bible tells us, “Not by power nor by might, but by my Spirit says the Lord.”
The Baptism in the Holy Spirit may provide a person with a special spirit of ability or talent, such as:

         A spirit of craftsmanship;

         A spirit of music;

         A spirit of art;

         A spirit of creativity.

In Exodus 31, verses 1-11, a man named Bezaleel was filled with the Spirit of God in wisdom, and in understanding, and in knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship. He was enabled by the Spirit to work in gold, silver, and brass; in cutting and setting stones, and in carving wood: to help in the building of the tabernacle. Another example … about 500 years later, King David said that the pattern of the temple which his son, Solomon, built was given to David “by the spirit”. “All this,” said David, “the Lord made me understand in writing by his hand upon me, even all the works of this pattern.” [I Chronicles 28:12-19]

Many times you will also need protection as you work on a projects like we have discussed in this newsletter.

I knew of a high school teacher who was a wonderful witness for the Jesus Christ. One day a group of students who were Satanists or witches had a curse placed on a tape recording. They called the teacher on his telephone to play the recording to him. Before the teacher answered the phone, the Spirit impressed him to speak in tongues when he answered the phone. The teacher obeyed the Holy Spirit and the tape recorder on the other end of the line blew up (exploded). The next day at school this group of students told him they wanted what he had (about 10 of them as I remember) and he prayed with them to receive Christ!

In a school of ministry where I was Dean the host pastor related a story of a Christian girl who was abducted by a group of young men. They took her in a car with the intent of raping her. The girl was a Christian, from a Christian home. Her parents were Spirit-filled; however, she had never received the Baptism of the Holy Spirit. Suddenly she decided it might help if she had this Power. She prayed to be baptized in the Spirit. When the Holy Spirit came upon her, she spoke in tongues. The young men let her out of the car unharmed.

I prayed for an aunt of mine who was in the hospital more than 1,000 miles away. I had not seen her in years. I did NOT know what was wrong with her; only that the Lord told me to call her and pray for her in tongues. I did NOT know but she had an abdominal cancer as big as a person’s fist and was to have surgery the next day. When I prayed for her in tongues, the language of the Spirit, the cancer dissolved (disappeared) and she was healed instantly and did NOT have to have the surgery. Praise God!

A good friend of mine, John Garlock, was raised as an MK (missionary kid) in Africa. His father, H.B. Garlock was a tremendous man of God and wrote a book named Before They Kill and Eat You. You may special order it at any most Christian book stores or from CFNI (Christ for the Nations Institute) in Dallas, Texas USA. Deep in the interior of a jungle region he encountered a tribe who had tied a native to a stake or tree and was preparing to burn him alive.
The elder Garlock attempted to intercede for the man, pleading with the tribal leaders to let the man go and have mercy on him. His plans failed and they then tied up Garlock next to the native, preparing to burn them both. Garlock prayed and began to speak in tongues, the language of the Spirit. Whatever the Holy Spirit uttered through him so scared the attackers that they ran away and left the men unharmed.

The Holy Spirit will also guide you as well as anoint you for creativity, power, and wisdom. Jesus said, “He [The Comforter] will guide you into all truth” … AND … “He will show you things to come.” The Spirit will not only guide you into spiritual and scriptural truth, especially the knowledge of salvation in Jesus the Messiah, but He will guide you into truth and protect you from deception in earthly matters if you seek Him and wait on Him. He will show you things to come, not only in spiritual and scriptural issues, but also in your life … many times warning you ahead of time of impending danger or an unwise move if you seek Him and wait on Him.

The Apostle Paul received a prophecy NOT to go up to Jerusalem, but He did because the Spirit led him to. Another time he attempted to go into areas that he was constrained by the Spirit to NOT enter … until the Spirit directed him to another place where God wanted him. Let God’s Spirit guide you in the projects and fields of labor where HE wants you. The Holy Spirit knows what is BEST for you and the people to which you are to minister!

SUMMARY

There are different TRENDS throughout the years and throughout your lifetime and ministry. There are different TIMES of refreshing as well as seasons of opportunity. There are different ministries as well as gifts of the Holy Spirit … but only ONE LORD. Appropriate what He has made available to you and never forget to communicate the MESSAGE of the CROSS: the POWER of God unto salvation!

DESCRIPTION:

There are many types, as well as causes, of back pain. Also, there are severities ranging from moderate to extreme … and some, life threatening. Many people suffer for years with a condition that could have been taken care of in a short time … and some, instantly. God is the Healer and the Creator – and by virtue of this fact – He knows exactly what you need.

There is nothing wrong with going to physicians or seeking medical help or advice.   But what we should do is seek the LORD first to see what He wants us to do. He may want to heal us by His sovereign power, over a period of time, or instantaneously.

HEALING FROM BACK PAIN
~ A MIRACLE PODCAST PRODUCTION ~


MUSIC / INTRO

There are many types, as well as causes of, back pain. There is neck pain, upper back pain, mid and lower back pain, and then the sacrum related coditions at the base of the spine. You have probably heard someone complain of sciatica which is caused by irritation ot the nerve roots that lead to the sciatic nerve coming out of the spinal cord in the lower back. A bulging or ruptured disc is usually the primary culprit is such a condition. However, there can be other conditions involved.

Arthritis can cause bone spurs which can cause or exacerbate sciatica. Also, an injury can cause compression of the nerve roots. There are several other causes for sciatica, and the source of the irritation will usually dictate the treatment prescribed: physical therapy, medicine and sometimes surgery. Be very careful of exercise regimen with any type of back condtion, especially spinal related, as you could be aggravating the situation. Always check with your medical professional concerning any type of workouts, exercise and even stretching.

CAUTION: There is a condition known as Cauda Equina Syndrome which you might think is sciatica; however, it is very dangerous and without a MIRACLE from God may require urgent surgical treatment. It’s symptoms can be similar to sciatica, and causes can be:

  • A severe ruptured disk in the lumbar area (the most common cause).

  • Narrowing of the spinal canal (stenosis).

  • A spinal lesion or tumor.

  • A spinal infection, inflammation, hemorrhage, or fracture.

  • A complication from a severe lumbar spine injury such as a car crash, fall, gunshot, or stabbing.

  • A birth defect such as an abnormal connection between blood vessels.

There are types of bone pain attributed to bone fusion or where the vertebrae grow over. One such conditon is known as Ankylosing Spondylitis (AS). It affects the spine with pain and stiffness from the neck down to the lower back and does not necessarily confine itself to older people; it happens most often to teenagers and men in their twenties, and is characterized by stiffness from the neck down to the lower back, and can result in a rigid spine.

Back pain can be caused from injury, work, poor posture (sitting or standing), sports and recreation. But … the Good News is that YOU can be healed of back pain! You may be thinking … or saying … “I’ve had this condition for years!” Well, let me tell you, my friend, that Jesus, the Healer, has been healing for years! There are some practical things you can do to help your situation:

1. Exercise (check with a medical professional before starting an exercise or stretching regimen);

2. Take proper nutrition and supplements;

3. Get the required amount of sunshine (for Vitamin D);

4. Rest your body and your mind.

5. Take advantage of physical helps like the “Teeter HangUps” inversion table. This helps reverse the effects of gravity and disc compression. (Check with your medical professional before using.)

The scope of this teaching is NOT to discuss specific types of therapy or treatments, but rather to present an alternative solution to problems that you or a loved one may be experiencing with back related issues.You can be healed today…NOW…by calling on the name of the LORD:  Who forgives all your sins, and Who heals all your diseases [Psalm 103:3]  The LORD’s healing nature never changes.  It is God’s will to heal you!

Remember the lady in the Bible who was bent over for 18 years?

“And, behold, there was a woman which had a spirit of infirmity eighteen years, and was bowed together (bent over), and could not in anyway lift herself up.

And when Jesus saw her, he called her to him, and said unto her, Woman, you are loosed from your infirmity.

And he laid his hands on her: and immediately she was made straight, and glorified God.” (Matthew 13:11-13)

MY TESTIMONIES

 

I am completely back pain FREE at this time in my life … and I have been on Planet Earth for quite a while! My advice to you – especially if you know the Great Physician, Yeshua HaMashiach (Jesus, the Messiah) – is: NEVER GIVE UP!

I went for 13 years with terrible back pain. I don’t know what caused it. I was a varsity wrestler in school, but I don’t remember any happenings that would have caused (the devil’s) pain. (I say “the devil’s pain” because it was NOT my pain; it was pain the devil wanted me to have!) Also, I had been in NO serious accidents, not even small ones. By God’s grace I have never had a broken bone in my lifetime. I have claimed the scripture for years (a prophetic one about Messiah Jesus’ death on the cross) that says, “He keeps all his bones; not one of them is broken.” (Psalm 34:20)

Here is how I was healed. My pain was so bad and so aggravating. I had been to a chiropractor years before and had learned or remembered how he had “fixed” my back to alleviate pain. So, I would lie on the floor and try to “fix” my back the way the chiropractor did.

I was miserable, and it got worse and worse! I was addicted to”cracking” my back. I probably was compounding the situation. It was such a miserable condition … and, to make matters worse, at that time in my life I did NOT know about the healing power of Christ!

Finally, I began to wonder if the situation was NOT a physical problem, but possibly a “spirit” problem; in other words, a “spirit of affliction” sent by the devil to plague me while I was trying to do God’s work! To give you an idea of how bad the situation was, if I were in a business environment where I had never been before, I would look to see if the receptionist stepped out of the office so I could lie on the floor and “crack” my back. I was miserable!

One day as I was on the floor ready to “crack” my back, the Holy Spirit spoke to me. He said, “Why don’t you let me take care of that for you?!” Wow! I knew exactly what He meant. Instead of ME trying to fix the problem and compounding it each time I “cracked” my back, the Holy Spirit wanted to FIX it. It was such a temptation because when – and immediately after – I would “crack” my back, I would feel so much better … until it started hurting again! I really had to resist “cracking” my back … but realized at the same time, I didn’t want to go through that all of my life. So … I said, “OK, Holy Spirit, I give this problem – this back condition – to You!” That was it, it was over. PRAISE GOD! That was many years ago.

Another time, I experienced extreme pain in my upper back below my shoulder. It was not a spinal problem, but it would hurt so badly that I would cry. I asked God different times to either heal me or take me home to Heaven! I went to medical doctors, I went to specialists, I went to physical therapy … nothing worked. I even told two of the doctors I had that I asked the LORD, “Either heal me or take me to Heaven,” so they would know how bad the situation was.

Nothing worked! Finally, one night while travelling in another area of the country, before I went to bed, I prayed to God and said, “Father, you can just send an Angel to touch me and I will be healed.” That night, while I was sleeping, I was awakened with a loud “POP” in my back where the problem had been. It was so loud it awakened me. And I was perfectly healed. I have never had that problem since, and never will, thank God … and thank the Holy Angel that God sent to touch me. Yes, “Touched by an Angel” has a special meaning to me!

_____________


PRAISE is also an important remedy for back pain.


1. It lifts up and straightens the spinal column and relaxes it from a “stooped” condition. Learn to practice praise to God several times a day for at least 30 seconds.

2. God lives in the praise of His people. “But You are holy, O You that inhabits the praises of Israel.” (Psalm 22:3)

3. The anointing breaks the yoke. Since God lives in the praise of His people, there is an anointing present with true praise, which can break an “assigned” attack on the body, mind or spirit. “And it shall come to pass in that day, that his burden shall be taken away from off thy shoulder, and his yoke from off thy neck, and the yoke shall be destroyed because of the anointing.” (Isaiah 10:27)

4. Praise brings victory. King Jehoshaphat and the inhabitants of Judah and Jerusalem won a large battle utilising praise. (Read 2 Chronicles Chapter 20, verses 1-30 in the Tanakh.)

CHECK THIS OUT:  An Egyptian friend of mine, Magdy Girgis, was a member of our Board of Directors. He worked for Hughes Aircraft as did several Christians who had been Baptized in the Holy Spirit, all of which spoke in tongues. They had Bible studies together every morning before work and also at luch time. One day a man named Warren Meisenbach, who worked in the Engineering Department, came to their Bible study at lunch. Warren was NOT a believer and he asked them, “What’s this born again stuff you keep talking about?” Warren had been a “hunch back” for 15 years (like the lady in the Bible I discussed earlier who had been bent over 18 years). Warren received Christ as his Lord that day, and asked the men to lay hands on him for healing. Instantly … they could hear his back “cracking’ like: POP, POP, POP. He was perfectly straightend in a normal position. (See Note #3 at bottom to listen to a podcast of this MIRACLE.) When he went home his wife was dumbfounded because he was not only “straightened” but smiling for the first time in years! Jesus is the Healer … the Great Physician. Will you let Him heal YOU?

If you want to meet the Healer, Yeshua HaMashiach – Jesus the Anointed One – NOW is the time!  Invite God’s Son, Yeshua, to come into your life by praying the following prayer:


“Messiah Jesus, I know that you are The Great Physician. You loved me enough to shed your sinless blood and die for me on the cross stake that I might be healed.

I know you are alive. Please forgive my sins, come into my life, and be my Master. Help me to live for you, and take me to Heaven when I die.”

ADDENDUM

 

I have seen many people healed by the LORD of back pain, back conditions and paralysis. I have witnessed many people walking out of their wheel chairs. I was holding a three day seminar and I had asked the people present to join me in prayer and fasting for the last day as I was going to teach on healing. A man was present who had been in a wheel chair for nine years due to two conditions: 1. A large 18 wheel semi-tractor truck had run into his automobile and he had five breaks in his spine; 2. He had muscular dystrophy. During Holy Communion he walked out of his wheel chair and never went back! Two years later, he gave his testimony in a large Presbyterian church and hundreds of people fell out of their seats under the Power of the Holy Spirit. NEVER GIVE UP!

 DESCRIPTION:

This teaching will discuss present global trends including compromise and corruption in commerce and in churches. Several alarming trends – not noticeable because of lack of coverage in major media outlets – are fulfillments of Bible prophecy and indicators that we are in the early stage of the End Times. Many of these trends have “fixed” themselves already on the landscape of the New Global Governance.

Churches in many large cities are growing but in many of them the people are being “cheated” out of 67 percent of the POWER and TEACHING of Jesus the Messiah. This is spiritual corruption!

On one hand, governmental and commercial corruption is stealing the dollar value of the citizenry … with the populace (that’s YOU, the reader and listener) paying for the theft twice again through increased taxation and inflation. On the other hand, church and ministry corruption is stealing the health and freedom of God’s people … with God’s people (that’s YOU) paying for it in doctor and medical bills and lack of production.

In this podcast teaching I will teach you how to recognize, resist and recover the loss resulting from the idol of wealth and materialism as it affects and infects the church, government and society.


 TRENDS AND TEMPLES
CORRUPTION AND CHARISMA
~ THEFT IN GOVERNMENT AND CHURCH ~

MUSIC / INTRO

TRENDS

The Turkish Lira crashed to new lows last year. Then, a few months ago a huge scandal in Turkey broke out due to corruption among government ministers and their family members. This will result in destabilization in the area. Why do I mention this? The same thing is happening in countries all over the world, resulting in riots, distrust of government, bankers and politicians.

Europe, Asia, Middle East and soon the USA are headed towards more upheaval. WHY? Preparation for the anti-Christ, the “False messiah.” The coming world leader needs an economic and military crisis as a platform for him to walk onto and be chosen head of the New Global Government (part of the New World Order).

As I taught in the University of Excellence concerning “Global Equalization Will Be the Catalyst for New Global Banking,there will be – and is now already largely in existence – the formation of a Global Elite Sector: a small group of people extremely wealthy and powerful who control political and economic sectors.

One-fourth of the world’s middle class economic echelon suffers from mental depression. But that is nothing compared to what will happen when they (and the other 75 percent) suffer from economic depression. One-fourth of the young people on Planet Earth are without employment and necessary education. They are mad and they have no trust … let alone hope … in the global or local power structures. Their drive is not going to be lessened in the future; to the contrary, it will be increased asymptotically. However, these are “minor quakes” in the events ushering in the Last Days.

__________________________

THOUGHT TO PONDER:
The coming world dictator is alive today and already involved in governance.

 __________________________

Look for more riots!

Look for more economic upheaval!

Look for the stock market to head south!

Look for (If you live in USA) the FED to keep pumping air into the economy by Quanitative Easing (QE), the printing of currency to increase money supply and pay government bills. What does this do? Makes your money worth less (like in, “worthless”) because of simple supply and demand. As your money loses value, prices go UP^. That’s why if the stock market goes up it does NOT necessarily mean your making money. Study my teaching on the New Global Currency.

TEMPLES

Today we see many large churches. Does this mean the sheep are being fed, or does it mean they are being fed but NOT nutritious food. Lots of restaurants cater to large crowds but does that mean the food is nutritious? Large churches (mega churches) are NOT necessarily a sign of productive ministry in the eyes of the LORD.

To be a productive church the shepherd leader must attempt to form and lead a POWER church: a real New Testament church. Programs and cell groups mean nothing if people are not being instructed in the ministry precepts of Jesus. WHAT are those precepts? Let’s look at what Jesus instructed His followers to do: 

1. Preach and teach;

2. Heal the sick; and,

3. Cast out demons.

Also, let’s look at the Great Commission: ” … teaching them to observe ALL things whatsoever I have commanded you …” (Matthew 28:20)

Pastors that do NOT minister healing and the Baptism in the Holy Spirit are cheating their flock out of 67 percent of the ministry of Jesus. They are omitting 2 out of 3 parts of Jesus’ ministry. They preach and teach but they are NOT serving healing or deliverance – #2 and #3 shown above – to their people. This is corruption. It is stealing … it is cheating God’s people AND the people who could be saved by witnessing the healing and miracle power of God.

Why do they do this? Usually because they do NOT believe in healing. Or, they will tell you, “I believe Jesus can heal,” or, “We have had people healed;” However, the TRUTH may be that they do NOT know HOW to minister healing so they dismiss it. That is, they either do NOT believe Jesus will heal, or they do NOT have the faith to pray or believe for healing. The same applies to MIRACLES … real miracles! The truth is: to minister healing and deliverance they need the Baptism in the Holy Spirit.

Healing ministry should be a part of all church worship services, or at least one service a week designated for healing. But what about people who are sick, diseased, bound, or afflicted who come to ANY service in need of healing, deliverance, or prayer? The same applies to the Baptism in the Holy Spirit and instruction concerning it.

Let me ask you some questions:

  • When – or how often – does your church pray for sick people by laying hands on them?How often are people anointed with oil (either in the church or in their homes)? 

  • When – or how often – are people being sent out (commissioned / ordained) to the ministry with the laying on of hands? 

  • When – or how often – are people baptized in the Holy Spirit (and speak in tongues) for the first time in your church or ministry?

  • When – or how often – do MIRACLES happen in your church? (Or, when was the last time you saw a REAL MIRACLE in your church?)

A person said to me the other day, “Healing is for salvation: to bring people to Christ.” I answered them,  “Healing is part of salvation. So is the Baptism in the Holy Spirit, deliverance, prosperity, ministry, and Kingdom responsibility.” Healing is for the sick to be healed. One miracle healing can do more than 25 years of preaching. If you are a shepherd leader, let me challenge you to include ALL of salvation in your ministry. And … train your people to do the same. Then, the church will be the church!

I have attended churches where healings, miracles, baptism in the Spirit, deliverance, and great teaching were always present. I taught at a graduate theological seminary where at one Thursday morning prayer meeting so many miracles happened that 77 people were baptized in water.

I saw a lady in church so devastated with cancer get up out of her wheel chair healed. Her slip (her under garment) fell off because she was so skinny from losing weight due to the cancer.

I saw a man with his head locked into his wheel chair because part of his spinal column was severed. His nurse took him to church. He got up out of his wheel chair completely healed and walked after the nurse unlocked his head. These are only a couple of the MANY healings and miracles I could write about.

I have seen blind eyes opened, deaf ears unstopped, people walking out of wheel chairs, demons cast out: all part of the normal Christian church ministry. At a seminar where I was teaching on healing there was a man who had been in a wheel chair nine years due to five breaks in his spine from a large truck hitting his auto PLUS he had muscular dystrophy. He walked out of his wheel chair during Holy Communion. Two years later he gave his testimony at a large Presbyterian church and hundreds of people fell out of their pews under the Power of God, overcome by the Holy Spirit.

I was teaching in Houston, USA, where there were three barren women present. I laid hands on them and prayed for them in Jesus’ name. All of them conceived in 30 days. There are NOT many good teachers any more. WHY? Because only PART of salvation is taught. It has been my experience that wherever the WHOLENESS of Christ is preached, the teaching will be dynamic, edifying, prophetic, and gift accompanied.

Look at the New Testament Church in the Book of Acts. Look at your church. If you are the shepherd leader, you can at least do your part:  preach and teach WHAT Jesus told you to; and minister the WHOLENESS of Christ. At least do your part and try! WARNING: You may have to pay the price of being ostracized, persecuted and maligned by people and the devil. However, you will be BLESSED by the LORD.

RECOGNIZE

Pray for your shepherd leader. God will speak to them because of your prayers; however, they may disobey. Why would they disobey? Several reasons: 1. Comfortable in the way they are leading; 2. Afraid to change; 3. Ashamed or embarrassed to say they believe the Gifts of the Holy Spirit still operate today; 4. Not willing to take a stand with Jesus’ full ministry; 5. Peer pressure; 6. Control by church board or body; 7. Pride.

Sometimes change may not happen. You will need to be honest enough with yourself to recognize this. If this is the case, then you have to make a decision to resist the damaging effects of religious bondage upon you and your loved ones now and in the future. If you are a parent with older children, you may think, “My children have friends at church or in their youth group. I don’t think we should leave.” You will have to seriously pray about your decision!

RESIST

You will have to resist spiritual lethargy – for your own spiritual health and wellbeing – and make a decision to be available to receive the fullness of Jesus’ ministry. By being available, I mean have access to ministry that does NOT steal from you. You have enough corruption in government and commerce … you don’t need it coming from the church in your spiritual life. There are several options:

  1. Find another church;

  2. Meet with other like-minded believers;

  3. Start your own church or Bible Study and prayer meetings.

  4. Have family Bible study or prayer times where you invite Jesus.

  5. Periodically travel to an anointed worship and MIRACLE service.

I would rather be alone with Jesus and His MIRACLE working power and love than to be in a crowd of unbelief.

RECOVER

As you continue into the sector of the End Times, you will see the trends of corruption that will increase in government and commerce, builidng an underpinning for the appearance of the anti-Christ. Remember, he will not only be against Christ but a false Christ. On the other hand, corruption in the temple – the Church – will cause many to be powerless, cheating them out of the FULL ministry of Jesus, the Messiah.

To recognize, resist and recover loss from both inflationary thievery implemented by government … and … corruption and thievery in the church – stealing two-thirds of Jesus’ ministry from YOU – you NEED the Gifts of the Holy Spirit to give you POWER, LEADING, WISDOM and DISCERNMENT in our financial and spiritual matters.

DESCRIPTION OF THIS BLOG

In the future economic chaos that will encompass the world
you may … if NOT prepared … suffer financial and material loss.
This message will help you to recover all … and to do greater works for the LORD.

________________________________________________________

HOW TO RECOVER LOSS

If you have lived long enough, it is quite possible you have encountered some type of loss … or let me put it this way: “Suffered some kind of loss.”  Suffer because any type of loss can cause you some kind of mental or physical anguish. What you want to be aware of – and guard against – is that you do not allow the loss to cause “anguish of the spirit.”

Many times loss is the result of a particular stratagem of Satan to get you to STOP action, or to DISCOURAGE you from going forward, or to harass you mentally and CONFUSE you so you do not focus on the important goals of the Kingdom of G-d: the ordained purpose of your existence at this particular time of your life.

At times, the loss we encounter may be our own fault as the result of:

Ignorance (lack of knowledge in a specific area);
Disobedience to G-d’s Law;
Not taking advantage of information available to us;
Presumption; and,
Foolishness (like gambling).

There can be as many types of loss as there are activities or relationships in which we are involved.

Financial loss;
Loss of a loved one;
Physical or mental loss due to health issues;
Loss of the anointing of the Ruach Ha Kodesh (the Holy Spirit).

In this teaching I want to teach you HOW to recover loss. (I was on my way to ride my motorcycle all day when G-d instructed me STOP and to give this word – this message – to His people.)

Many times, hard or difficult times are a good sign, especially for the People of G-d.

For example, a physical condition or material situation – or just tough thingswill crop up right before you are entering a NEW dimension of service to G-d.

You might not be aware that a NEW dimension of service to the LORD is about to unfold … or you may have been praying and fasting for it.

A NEW level or area of service to G-d is extremely important for the people you will be reaching AND for the Lord Yeshua Ha Meshciach you are serving.

When King David and his men returned to Ziklag they discovered their wives and children and all their property had been taken by the Amalekites.

When consulting with the LORD, David was directed to “Pursue, for you shall surely overtake them, and without fail recover all.”

The message for you is to “Go, recover all the enemy has stolen from you.” Bind Satan in JESUS’ name and command him to repay you seven times for everything he has stolen from you. “Men do not despise a thief, if he steal to satisfy his soul when he is hungry; But if he be found, he shall restore sevenfold; he shall give all the substance of his house.” (Proverbs 6:30-31)

How much more shall the devil, using his demonic agents to steal from you, be commanded in JESUS’ name to restore to you sevenfold, if not more!

Notice that David and his men not only recovered their wives, children, and property that had been stolen … but, also, recovered all the spoil the Amalekites had stolen from the Philistines and out of the land of Judah.

Notice, also, that right before this happened, David was greatly distressed (when his men discovered their loss) because the people were considering stoning him. However, “David encouraged himself in the LORD his G-d.” (1 Samuel 30:6)

A few days later after recovering the losses at Ziklag plus extra riches, David received word that his enemy, King Saul, had been slain in battle. David then went up to Hebron, where the men of Judah anointed him King over Judah. (Even though the LORD’s Prophet Samuel had anointed him King previously.)

SUMMARY

Hard times are many times a sign that you are entering a NEW dimension of service to G-d … and blessing: for YOU and for the people you will be serving.

Hard times are many times a sign that the devil is greatly concerned about the NEW dimension of service you will be entering, and therefore is trying to defeat you through discouragement so that you will roll over and quit. Do NOT do it. Get up, ACT, and recover it all.

In hard times you have an EXCELLENT opportunity to encourage others:

They can see your trust in G-d.

Your declaration of faith will position you into G-d’s favor.

Your testimony will encourage others to KNOW or GROW Messiah Yeshua in their lives.

SUGGESTION

Get alone with G-d and and LISTEN to Him. (You may want to fast.)

If your loss has been financial or material (as many people’s will be in the future) then make a COVENANT with G-d.

Tell Him that you want to give him a certain amount above your normal tithes and offerings for a certain amount of time or a certain length of new venture you are entering. (See Tanakh: Malachi Chapter Three.) You can give this money to your Synagogue or Church or Prayer Group … or to the needy, orphans, and widows.

Learn to work with G-d “hand-in-hand” to bless the nations. This is TRUE prosperity.

“But you shall remember the LORD your G-d: for it is he that gives you power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he swore unto your fathers …” (Torah: Deuteronomy 8:18)

Remember: the devil wants to kill you, steal from you, and destroy you. But the GOOD NEWS is that Messiah Yeshua came to Planet Earth that YOU might have life … and have it MORE ABUNDANTLY. This is G-d’s will for you in addition to eternal life in Heaven!

Below I am listing some resources to help you.

Get up, ACT, and recover it all!

THE BOOK OF ISAIAH VS. FALSE HIGHER TEXTUAL CRITICISM

THE UNITY OF THE BOOK OF ISAIAH VS. FALSE HIGHER TEXTUAL CRITICISM

FALSE HIGHER CRITICISM AND POWERLESS PROFESSORS

A SPECIAL PRESENTATION


DESCRIPTION:

This special presentation will expose the fraudulent, faithless, and foolish teaching that has weakened … if not destroyed … the faith of many seminary graduates who once had a bright light in their eye and a goal towards a lifetime of service in both orthodox and conservative synagogues and churches.

Powerless and impotent professors beget powerless and impotent rabbis and ministers. Like things produce like things. It’s not the survival of the fittest that is a problem for evolution … but it is the ARRIVAL of the fittest. In like manner, it is the arrival upon the scene of Spirit-filled, faith believing rabbis and ministers who bring an influx of G-d, His glory, and His miracles into houses of worship.

Many theological seminaries who were once beacons on the hill for truth and the integrity of G-d’s Word have departed from the core belief that the Holy Bible (Tanakh and Brit Chadashah) is the inspired, inerrant word of G-d in entirety. Instead of turning out powerful men and women of G-d, they are producing leaders who at the best are social and theological evolutionists … and at the worst are shepherds for a neutered Mashiach: a powerless Jesus.

I attended the 2011 graduation ceremony at Azusa Pacific University where 1313 graduates were receiving degrees (B.A., Masters, and Ph.D). The speaker, the new President of the University, a Christian pastor of a large Nazarene church and from a family of many ministers, presented the message to the graduates. After listening to his whole speech, I wondered if he ever reads the Holy Bible … or when was the last time he read it. He mentioned that Abraham’s wife, Sarah, was 95 when she bore Isaac; he also mentioned that Gideon won the battle against the Midianites with only 30 men. Maybe he is just not good with numbers!

Many seminarians have had their faith destroyed by “mentors of madness.” However, it is not all the fault of the impotent professors. If the students were true scholars, they would at least spend as much time searching for truth as they do listening to the directives of their teachers. Just because a teacher has a Ph.D. does not mean he or she holds truth circumspectly. There are usually just as many Ph.D.’s holding positions on the opposite side of the aisle.

Most lay people are unaware of how different their rabbi’s or pastor’s academic view of the Bible is from their own view. If they were to find out that their rabbi or pastor did NOT believe the Bible is the inspired, inerrant Word of G-d in entirety, they would be shocked. Actually, this is no more than fraud on the part of leadership. They are being paid while at the same time leading their congregants or parishioners astray. They usually do NOT tell their people what they believe, unless symantically “masking” their real beliefs.

For example, they do NOT believe that the Holy Prophets could predict events ahead of time. (It makes you wonder how they deal with the prophecy of Bethlehem in Tanakh: Micah 5:2.) They do NOT believe, for example, that G-d could tell Isaiah ahead of time that Cyrus would take Babylon and free the Jews to return to Jerusalem. (See Isaiah 44:28 and 45:1-4) This prophecy was given to Isaiah 100 years before Cyrus was born … and called Cyrus by name. This is WHY many synagogues and churches are weak: they have leaders who have been brainwashed by seminary professors to NOT believe in the Word of G-d or in the prophetic ability of the Holy Prophets. (This is usually NOT a problem in yeshivah gedola.)

This transfers to a host of problems: lack of healing, lack of miracles and lack of power; all of which could give glory to G-d and benefit the people of G-d. A lack of TRUE scholarshhip in higher biblical criticism as taught by many seminary professors trickles down and influences the student … many times causing doubt towards the Word of G-d … and at the worst, producing destruction of faith. When a seminarian is taught falsely that there were two … or possibly even three … authors of the Book of Isaiah (Deutero Isaiah, Tertiary Isaiah, etc.), it causes them to doubt the authority of the Holy Bible.

It is for this reason that I am presenting this material to you. I want to prove to you how you can know that Isaiah wrote the Book of Isaiah.

HOW WE KNOW THAT ISAIAH WROTE THE BOOK OF ISAIAH

ISAIAH AND CYRUS THE GREAT – NO DEUTERO-ISAIAH

Editor’s note:
I have been planning on presenting this material for some time;
however, after reviewing the material below by Chuck Missler, I think it
covers everything I would have presented … and more … and better!
_____________________________________________________

The following is a two-part commentary by Chuck Missler

______________________________________________________________


“Hereupon the Persians who had been left for the purpose at Babylon by the, river-side, entered the stream, which had now sunk so as to reach about midway up a man’s thigh, and thus got into the town.” – Herodotus

In 539 BC, Cyrus son of Cambyses took Babylon without a struggle. According to the Greek historian Herodotus, Cyrus diverted the course of the Euphrates river, making the river level drop and giving the invading forces the ability to enter into the city that night through the river bed. Nobody noticed them coming in, and the city gates that opened up onto the river were not closed; the Persians were able to just walk into town. Within a year, Cyrus declared that all the Jews captive in Babylon were free to return home to Jerusalem, as described in Ezra Chapter 1.

These two events – the taking of Babylon the Great without a battle and the magnanimous freeing of the Jews soon after – are both remarkable historical events in themselves. What makes them even more notable is the fact that God told about them in Isaiah 44:26-45:1, 13, appointing Cyrus by name 100 years before this son of Cambyses was born.

The Book of Isaiah is one of the most greatly admired and beloved books of the Bible. The New Testament writers quote Isaiah more than all the other Old Testament prophets combined. From a literary point of view, the writing of Isaiah is superb, full of parallelism and euphony; scholars savor Isaiah’s obvious attention to the literary art of his writing.

Beyond his writing skill, Isaiah’s book is filled with prophecies about Judah and the surrounding lands. It also contains a host of very important Messianic prophecies (7:14-16; 9:1-7; 11:1-16; 32:1ff; 42:1-7; 50:5-8; 52:13-15; 61:1-3; 65:17), even describing in detail Jesus’ crucifixion 700 years before it happened.

In Isaiah 44 and 45, God not only describes the ease with which Cyrus would enter the city with the “two leaved gates” (gates that were not even shut against the invaders!) but also notes that He would “loose the loins of kings” before Cyrus – a euphemism regarding the fear these kings would feel and the mess in their pants they’d make as a result. As a matter of fact, about the time Cyrus’ men were entering the city, King Belshazzar, co-regent with his father Nabonidus, was being interrupted in his feast. A hand began to write on the wall to tell Belshazzar that his time was up. Daniel 5:6 puts in not-so-delicate terms how greatly the fear of this sight affected Belshazzar, saying, “his thoughts troubled him, so that the joints of his loins were loosed, and his knees smote one against another.” Who says God isn’t detailed!

In circles of modern liberal criticism, though, it has become popular to dismiss the idea, held for some 2500 years, that Isaiah son of Amoz wrote the entire book credited to his name. Old Testament scholars have found it fashionable to argue that there were at least two “Isaiahs”, perhaps even three or more. These critics argue that it makes no sense for God to have foretold events that would not have taken place during the life of the prophet. They attempt to argue that the character of God in Isaiah 1-39 is far fiercer than the gentle God of Isaiah 40-66, that the language is different in the two sections, and that there are two different views of the Messiah between the first part of Isaiah and that written by the alleged Deutero-Isaiah. Ultimately, they do not believe that Isaiah could have written about Cyrus the Great in 700 BC. They cannot believe that the precise information in that prophecy could have been penned 150 years before it came to pass.

These criticisms can sound scholarly on the surface, but they depend far less on evidence than on a bias against predictive prophecy. While these scholars may believe that a bias against the supernatural – and the power of God to speak through His prophets centuries in advance – is scientific in this modern world, the truth is, it’s still a bias. It’s still just their opinion based on a humanistic worldview.

Honest scholarship strongly supports the historical view that Isaiah ben Amoz wrote the entire book with his name on it.

Historically, Isaiah has always been recognized as the author of all 66 chapters.

  • The Septuagint: When the Septuagint was translated in the 3rd century BC, merely two centuries after Deutero-Isaiah was supposed to have been written, there was no indication that the book had more than one author.
  • The New Testament: The New Testament writers treat the entire book of Isaiah as one book belonging to one author and quote him more than all the other prophets combined. In fact, in John 12:37-41, John quotes from Isaiah chapter 53 and chapter 6 back to back, giving Isaiah credit for both sections.

“But though he had done so many miracles before them, yet they believed not on him:

That the saying of Esaias the prophet might be fulfilled, which he spake, Lord, who hath believed our report? and to whom hath the arm of the Lord been revealed?”

Isaiah 53:1; Romans 10:16

“Therefore they could not believe, because that Esaias said again,

He hath blinded their eyes, and hardened their heart; that they should not see with their eyes, nor understand with their heart, and be converted, and I should heal them.”

Isaiah 6:9,10; Mtatthew13:14

  • The Dead Sea Scrolls: An entire copy of the book of Isaiah was found in the Dead Sea Scrolls. There is no separation between Chapters 1-39 and 40-66. In fact, chapter 40 starts on the last line of the same column that ends chapter 39. As Oswald Allis notes, “Obviously the scribe was not conscious of the alleged fact that an important change of situation, involving an entire change of authorship, begins with chapter 40.”

Internally, Isaiah offers extensive evidence of one author:

  • Isaiah’s Hebrew: Throughout all 66 chapters, Isaiah uses pure Hebrew. Unlike Ezra and Nehemiah, which use terminology adopted from Babylon, Isaiah’s Hebrew is free from the vocabulary that the Jews gained during the exile.
  • Jerusalem and the land: The destruction and future healing of Jerusalem are described in chapters 1-39, and Jerusalem is described as still standing in chapters 40-66, demonstrating distant prophecy in the first part of Isaiah and an early date for the end of Isaiah. For instance, in 3:8, Isaiah speaks of Jerusalem as already fallen and destroyed in the context of a prophecy about the future. In 6:11-13, which all agree is a passage by Isaiah son of Amoz, God describes the future destruction of the land followed by the return of the remnant. On the other hand, passages like 40:9 and 62:6 treat Jerusalem and the cities of Judah as still standing, as they were before the Babylonian invasion.
  • Topography: The description of the topography in Isaiah 40-66 is the rocky mountainous land of Judah and not the flat alluvial Fertile Crescent. For instance, 57:5-6 describes the “clifts of the rocks” and the smooth stones of the streams.
  • Themes: Certain themes and terminology are repeated throughout the book. The “highway” theme comes up repeatedly (11:16; 19:23; 35:8; 40:3; 62:10). Isaiah refers to God as “Lord of hosts” repeatedly throughout the entire book.  “The Holy One of Israel” is Isaiah’s distinctive name for God used 12 times in chapters 1-39 and 14 times in chapters 40-66. The phrase is only used six other times in the Bible outside of Isaiah.
  • The significance of idolatry:  Idolatry was a major problem in Judah before the exile, but the post-exilic writers Haggai, Zechariah, Ezra, Nehemiah and Malachi do not mention idolatry even while discussing the nation’s other sins. Yet, in the latter end of his book, Isaiah continues to speak strongly against idolatry (41:29; 44:9-20; 57:4ff; 65:2-7), indicating an early authorship. 
  • The by-line: Only Isaiah, son of Amoz, is named as the author throughout the book of Isaiah, at the beginnings of chapters 2, 7, 13, 20, 38, and 39. No other author is mentioned at all. Even when Ezra and Nehemiah were bound together, those two books did not get confused and lumped together under Ezra. Yet, “Deutero-Isaiah” was allegedly lost to history. Chapters 40-66 contain some of the highest quality literature in all of written history, yet we are expected to believe that this writer went mysteriously unrecognized until he was “discovered” by recent scholarship.

As Gleason Archer Jr. declared, “There is not a shred of internal evidence to support the theory of a Second Isaiah, apart from a philosophical prejudice against the possibility of predictive prophecy.”

Isaiah is an amazing book, filled with the power and passion of God. In it He declares, “I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me, Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure:” (Isaiah 46:9-10).

A Common Pitfall: How Many Isaiahs?
by Chuck Missler

Copyright © Koinonia House Inc. 1994

___________________________________

My early zeal for studying the Scripture was dampened many years ago as I encountered what is often called “textual criticism.” I was surprised to learn that it was naive and unlearned to regard the Book of Isaiah as actually written by the prophet Isaiah, as was commonly thought.

With its 66 chapters, Isaiah is the longest prophetic book of the Old Testament. Most scholars agree that the book falls naturally into two major sections, Chapters 1-39 and Chapters 40-66.

The first section has a distinctive style which changes noticeably in the final section. It is easy to remember since it parallels the Bible itself, with 39 books in the Old Testament and 27 in the New Testament. (But don’t make too much of this; the chapter divisions, as we know them, were added in the 13th century.)

The Deutero-Isaiah Theory

The “textual critics” have insisted that the Book of Isaiah is a compilation of two different writers, each calling himself Isaiah but writing at different times. This “Deutero-Isaiah” theory is surprisingly prevalent in many modern (“liberal”) commentaries. (There are some that even advocate a three-Isaiah theory.)

The first section of the book deals with God’s approaching judgment on the nation of Judah. In some of the most striking passages in all the Bible, the prophet announces that God will punish His people because of their sin, rebellion, and worship of false gods. While this section includes many references to the coming Messiah, including His virgin birth1 and his rule on the throne of David,2 the style of this section is distinctive and certainly fits the subject matter.

The last section, in contrast to the first, is noticeably different. It emphasizes the Messianic expectation and an ultimate comfort for God’s people. (Most of Handel’s Messiah was drawn from this section of the Book of Isaiah.) The heart of his stunning prophecy occurs in Chapter 53, as Isaiah presents the role of the coming Messiah in its highest point. Some call this passage the “Holy of Holies” of the Old Testament. The Servant’s suffering and death and the redemptive nature of His mission are clearly foretold. Although mankind deserved God’s judgment because “we have turned, every one, to his own way,”3 God sent His Servant to take away our sins. According to Isaiah, it is through His suffering that we are reconciled with God, since “the Lord has laid on Him the iniquity of us all.”

It is principally on the basis of the stylistic changes between the two sections that critics have developed the Deutero-Isaiah theory. Those who assign Chapters 40-66 to a “Second Isaiah” point out that the two major sections of the book seem to be set in different times. Chapters 1-39 clearly belong to the eighth century b.c., a turbulent period in the history of Judah.


But Isaiah 40-66, according to these scholars, seems to be addressed to the citizens of Judah who were being held as captives in Babylon about two centuries after Isaiah lived and prophesied. These scholars also point to the differences in tone, language, and style between the two major sections as proof that the book was written by two different authors.

The Traditional View

There are, however, conservative scholars who insist the entire book was written by the famous prophet Isaiah who ministered in the southern kingdom of Judah for 40 years, from about 740-700 b.c. They point out that the two sections of the book have many similarities, although they are dramatically different in tone and theme. Many phrases and ideas that are peculiar to Isaiah appear in both sections of the book.

A good example of this is Isaiah’s unique reference to God as “the Holy One of Israel.”4 The appearance of these words and phrases can be used to argue just as convincingly that the book was written by a single author.

In the second section of his book, Isaiah looked into the future and predicted the years of the Captivity and the return of the Covenant People to their homeland after the Captivity ended. If the prophet could predict the coming of the Messiah over 700 years before that happened, he could certainly foresee this major event in the future of the nation of Judah.

The style of each section deliberately matches its subject matter.

The Valley of Doubt

Doubts about the authorship and authenticity of any book in the Bible can have tragic consequences for those who are attempting to take the Bible seriously (especially seminary students). As I look back on my own spiritual journey, I recall the many years that these views introduced a subtle doubt in my mind and hampered my real growth in the Word.

Is there a way to resolve this without getting drawn into the distressing debates and arrogant displays among erudite scholars and “textual critics”? Indeed, there is. I only wish I had discovered it earlier in my own travels through God’s wondrous Word.

The Discovery in John 12

What a precious chapter! It has many marvelous insights, but among the dearest to me personally are verses 37-41:

37] But though he had done so many miracles before them, yet they believed not on him:
38] That the saying of Isaiah the prophet might be fulfilled, which he spake, Lord, who hath believed our report? and to whom hath the arm of the Lord been revealed?
39] Therefore they could not believe, because that Isaiah said again,
40] He hath blinded their eyes, and hardened their heart; that they should not see with their eyes, nor understand with their heart, and be converted, and I should heal them.
41] These things said Isaiah, when he saw his glory, and spake of him.

In this passage we first encounter a quote, in verse 38, familiar to many of you, that begins the famous chapter of Isaiah 53. This would be in the section attributed to the “Second Isaiah.”

In verse 40 we have a quote from Isaiah Chapter 6 (v. 10), as verse 41 also highlights what occurs when Isaiah beholds the throne of God. This is, of course, in the first section of Isaiah.

Oh, how I am grateful for verse 39! Notice that John tells us that “that Isaiah said again” when he links the two passages and, thus, the two sections and attributes them both to “that” (same) Isaiah!

If you take John seriously, and recognize the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, then you need not doubt the authorship of Isaiah – both “sections.”

It is fascinating to me to notice that there is no heresy – or controversy – that hasn’t been anticipated by the Holy Spirit within the Scripture itself. If we recognize the reality that we have 66 books penned by 40 authors over thousands of years that are an integrated whole, and that every detail has been the result of careful and skillful engineering, then there is no need to stumble over the erudite skepticism and arrogance by scholarship falsely so called.

Isn’t God wonderful? If we would just learn to take Him at His Word.

THE POWER OF A SEPARATED LIFE


After I became a follower of Messiah Yeshua 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.” [Brit Chadashah: 2 Corinthians 6:14, 17-18]

I didn’t have to leave my friends when I became a believer; they left me! When my lifestyle became different and my interests were focused in Godly avenues, there was no common ground. However, I still talked to my friends about the Lord, and prayed for them, and loved them with Messiah’s compassion. Thankfully, many of them are now followers of Yeshua 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 teaching 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 Messiah, 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 Yeshua ha Meshiach (Jesus the Messiah). 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 Messiah . . . keep under the anointing!
