Unhappy Anniversary

Nazi Germany under the leadership of Hitler extinguished 6 million Jews in World War 2. Check your facts and you will see the United States of America was late getting into war due to the Monroe Doctrine serving as the weight of American foreign policy. World War 2 began with Germany invading Poland in 1939. It was not until 1941 when Americans saw the carnage up close did it give itself to the sacrifice of war.

My point in this rant is that seeing something up close and personal is the only thing that brings a fast-radical change in beliefs. I had no use as a teen to wear a seat belt until I saw my good friend’s life taken from him in a car wreck, and he was not wearing a seat belt. 39 years later I am almost religious about wearing mine, and that saved my life as I was in head on collision at 70 miles an hour. God and a seat belt saved my life.

Shock factor changes everything.

This year if the rate stays the same America will have performed 60 million abortions since Roe VS Wade January 22 1973. That is 10 times that of Jews killed in the holocaust. Yesterday in Washington DC The march proclaimed many things and included was “opposition to the reversal of Roe VS Wade”.

The nation is split and seems irreparable without divine intervention. Only one thing may bring the nation together or at least to some type of common ground of what is evil again. Roe VS Wade is now 44 years old. A new generation is grappling with the facts of life and death in America. I think it is time for the voters, the people to have complete disclosure and view abortion up close to see it as it is, an attack on life no different that of Pearl Harbor that shocked us into war. It would be traumatizing but TRAUMA TRUMPS DEATH.

The real answer is adoption and I have been a world traveler since 2001 and have seen scores of Americans all over the world Adopting children because of the lack of live unwanted babies in America.

GRACE, GRACE, GRACE, to the women who have had abortions. Peace to your heart and forgiveness you have been sold a bill of goods that is rotten to the core. If you would have known, you would not have DONE that I am confident. The Truth is out there.

If you read this and you are angry I would ask you 2 questions

Would you be willing to do a Google search for pictures and video of an aborted BABY?

Would you research with pictures what happens during and after an abortion to the BABY?

If you do those two things and slow down and listen to the still small voice in your own conscience and shut out all the other voices it would make my day.

Truth Telling Anointing

This past Sunday pastor David Bendett of Rock City Church in Flour Bluff Texas was fired up as usual in the 1st service. He was speaking out of Philippians 1:27 about the importance of the church being one in spirit and mind for the work of the kingdom of God. He began to take a detour over to Acts 16 telling the story of how the church in Philippi was birthed. During the story of the slave girl-fortune teller he said, and I quote “Truth telling Anointing”. When he said that the hair on my arms stood up and I started to tear up. Then He said “did you feel that” as he rubbed his arms he began to tell stories of seeing Jesus break into the lives of people in the occult in his own history.

It was a great message and the last two days I keep thinking about that phrase “Truth Telling Anointing” so this morning I put the words in parenthesis into google and this came up. No results found for “Truth Telling Anointing”.  I thought I understand the concept and really wondering why someone hadn’t coined that term. Did the Lord just give that to pastor David or was that just something he had understood to be true?

I decided to do a little study on the thought in scripture.

John 14:6  Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

1st off Jesus is TRUTH

John 16:13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.

2nd thing is the Holy Spirit is TRUTH and guides us into ALL TRUTH

Acts 16:12-26 12 And from thence to Philippi, which is the chief city of that part of Macedonia, and a colony: and we were in that city abiding certain days. 13 And on the sabbath we went out of the city by a river side, where prayer was wont to be made; and we sat down, and spake unto the women which resorted thither. 14 And a certain woman named Lydia, a seller of purple, of the city of Thyatira, which worshipped God, heard us: whose heart the Lord opened, that she attended unto the things which were spoken of Paul. 15 And when she was baptized, and her household, she besought us, saying, If ye have judged me to be faithful to the Lord, come into my house, and abide there. And she constrained us. 16 And it came to pass, as we went to prayer, a certain damsel possessed with a spirit of divination met us, which brought her masters much gain by soothsaying: 17 The same followed Paul and us, and cried, saying, These men are the servants of the most high God, which shew unto us the way of salvation. 18 And this did she* many days. But Paul, being grieved, turned and said to the spirit, I command thee in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her. And he came out the same hour. 19 And when her masters saw that the hope of their gains was gone, they caught Paul and Silas, and drew them into the marketplace unto the rulers, 20 And brought them to the magistrates, saying, These men, being Jews, do exceedingly trouble our city, 21 And teach customs, which are not lawful for us to receive, neither to observe, being Romans. 22 And the multitude rose up together against them: and the magistrates rent off their clothes, and commanded to beat them. 23 And when they had laid many stripes upon them, they cast them into prison, charging the jailor to keep them safely: 24 Who, having received such a charge, thrust them into the inner prison, and made their feet fast in the stocks. 25 And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and sang praises unto God: and the prisoners heard them. 26 And suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken: and immediately all the doors were opened, and every one’s bands were loosed.

3rd point the preaching of the TRUTH gets a demonic manifestation in which the words are TRUE. Oh no, that looks like a real can of worms. The girl is demon possessed and this didn’t just happen in passing, she continued for MANY DAYS. Notice Paul didn’t cast out the demons immediately, and he cast them out after being grieved which must of taken days. I would venture to say the outcome brought persecution and the church in Philippi was birthed.

Question does this sound familiar, the answer should be a resounding yes. It happened to Jesus check it out.

Mark 1:21-28 21 And they went into Capernaum; and straightway on the sabbath day he entered into the synagogue, and taught. 22 And they were astonished at his doctrine: for he taught* them as one that had authority, and not as the scribes. 23 And there was in their synagogue a man with an unclean spirit; and he cried out, 24 Saying, Let us alone; what have we to do with thee, thou Jesus of Nazareth? art thou come to destroy us? I know thee who thou art, the Holy One of God. 25 And Jesus rebuked him, saying, Hold thy peace, and come out of him. 26 And when the unclean spirit had torn him, and cried with a loud voice, he came out of him. 27 And they were all amazed, insomuch that they questioned among themselves, saying, What thing is this? what new doctrine is this? for with authority commandeth he even the unclean spirits, and they do obey him. 28 And immediately his fame spread abroad throughout all the region round about Galilee.

WOW, take note the demon possessed man was in the synagogue. Why was he there? Maybe the same reason the girl followed Paul in acts 16. The big deal is the spirit declared the TRUTH, then deliverance came as Jesus the TRUTH set the man free.

Here is another account very similar

Mark 5:1-20 1 And they came over unto the other side of the sea, into the country of the Gadarenes. 2 And when he was come out of the ship, immediately there met him out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit, 3 Who had his dwelling among the tombs; and no man could bind him, no, not with chains: 4 Because that he had been often bound with fetters and chains, and the chains had been plucked asunder by him, and the fetters broken in pieces: neither could any man tame him*. 5 And always, night and day, he was in the mountains, and in the tombs, crying, and cutting himself with stones. 6 But when he saw Jesus afar off*, he ran and worshipped him, 7 And cried with a loud voice, and said, What have I to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of the most high God? I adjure thee by God, that thou torment me not. 8 For he said unto him, Come out of the man, thou unclean spirit. 9 And he asked him, What is thy name? And he answered, saying, My name is Legion: for we are many. 10 And he besought him much that he would not send them away out of the country. 11 Now there was there nigh unto the mountains a great herd of swine feeding. 12 And all the devils besought him, saying, Send us into the swine, that we may enter into them. 13 And forthwith Jesus gave them leave. And the unclean spirits went out, and entered into the swine: and the herd ran violently down a steep place into the sea*, (they were about two thousand;) and were choked in the sea. 14 And they that fed the swine fled, and told it in the city, and in the country. And they went out to see what it was that was done. 15 And they come to Jesus, and see him that was possessed with the devil, and had the legion, sitting, and clothed, and in his right mind: and they were afraid. 16 And they that saw it told them how it befell to him that was possessed with the devil, and also concerning the swine. 17 And they began to pray him to depart out of their coasts. 18 And when he was come into the ship, he that had been possessed with the devil prayed him that he might be with him. 19 Howbeit Jesus suffered him not, but saith unto him, Go home** to thy friends, and tell them how great things the Lord hath done for thee, and hath had compassion on thee. 20 And he departed, and began to publish in Decapolis how great things Jesus had done for him: and all men did marvel.

Same reoccurring idea, Demon possessed show up at the preaching of the TRUTH, deliverance follows and the crowd gets to decide on what they will do with the TRUTH. One last point to make is in 1st John

1st John 2:27 But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need* not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.

4th point is that just as Jesus was anointed by the Holy Spirit so is the preaching of HIM, the TRUTH it is fair to say the demon possessed may show up. They may even say the TRUTH. But the complete TRUTH is the good news, Jesus is the Son Of God and he died rose from the dead on the 3rd day and is seated at the right hand of the father. He provided Eternal life for those who would receive it and a life of freedom in this life even from demons!

That is the TRUTH! That we would walk in the TRUTH TELLING ANOINTING. Jesus is lord!

Philippians 2: 10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;

Solomon the wise said in Proverbs 22:28 Remove not the ancient landmark, which thy fathers have set.

It was wise because God had said it very clearly before. The context is Interesting because In Deuteronomy God was laying out some guidelines on his promise to increase His children of promise boundaries BUT. The but, or the bottom line so to speak is, do not remove or change the boundaries. The owner can change but not the boundary.

boundary

Gheb-ool, Hebrew word for border used 241 times in OT, Stronges # 01366

Several years ago, I was in Ethiopia and a man of God I highly respect was spending lots of time in prayer about God restoring the boundary of Ethiopia or Cush back to his original plan. He was spending lots of time and energy on that subject. I was bewildered and thought was a real waste of time. After getting back to the US I started wondering why a man who has led over 75,000 people to Jesus would be concerned about such a thing. Then I began to grasp that both his walk with Jesus, lifestyle and devotional life was a mountain to my mole hill. My next thought was, “I think he knows God’s heart and I did not.”

That was several years ago, and I am now convinced that the Lord does care about that and has millennial purposes in place and that one large component to understanding the end times, only makes since with borders being restored and most importantly Israel.

The outward expansion of Empires and War over the centuries has all but obliterated any concept of original borders. God only knows his original intent for the Nations but one thing is for sure Psalms makes clear Jesus can them as an inheritance.

(NASB) Psalms 2:8 Ask of Me, and I will surely give the nations as Your inheritance, And the very ends of the earth as Your possession.

I have recently been having dreams that if in any way have to do with the Lord it could indicate the Lord is touching idea of borders. In the Natural realm, Brixit and President Elect Trumps victory had everything to do with borders and their protection. The polarized difference in opinion on that subject is mind blowing, almost a topic of war.

The unprecedented changed in american stance on the border of Israel in opposition to what the bible lays out is staggering. If you believes what the bible says about the subject all eyes should be watching the news in the coming days.

If you are interesting on what God said the boundaries were it is found in Genesis 15:18, 17:8 read it for yourself. Want to see a picture with explanations check out this web site.

Prayer: Father, I pray your Kingdom would come and your will would be done in the land that you created, and that your plans and purposed for the Nations including Israel would come to pass. In Jesus Name. Amen
