To Make You Think (assorted video clips)
Sunday, March 28, 2010
Fear has taken many captive. Fear has caused you, My holy people, to lose any momentum you had and to hide what I am doing, rather than putting your lamp on the lamp stand for all to see. I tell you plainly: I do not desire you to hide what I am doing, but I want you to put it high on a lamp stand for all to see. Do not retreat into yourself, but instead forcefully advance My Kingdom in the earth.
Where the Holy Spirit is welcomed and moving, there is great liberty. Liberty strikes terror into the heart of the enemy: especially the spirit of religion. After all, if you My holy people begin to exercise your authority in Christ by way of the leading and guidance of the Holy Spirit, enemy strongholds will be overrun and My Kingdom will be established and great spoil will be taken from the enemy.
Be filled with My Spirit.
Be obedient to My Word.
Be ever vigilant … and be ready to take what the enemy has stolen and redeem it, causing Me to be glorified and the enemy to cower in fear. Behold, all things become new, when I come on the scene in great power and glory.
Be awakened to My extravagant love for the lost, even those who are caught in the very terror of the enemy strongholds. Make them into disciples for My Kingdom. Equip them to do the work of ministry. For as these become equipped to do My will in the earth, the enemy will begin to be turned away from your cities, from your regions and your nations.
Seek My Face. Seek a face to face audience with Me. Call upon My Name. Call out with great passion and great heart, for I am looking for those who will make a difference for My Kingdom. Those who will take back all that the enemy has stolen and then begin to take ground, acquiring all your assigned territory.
It is not enough to be silently appreciative for what I have done, but I am looking for a people who will worship Me with all their heart, all their soul, all their mind and all their strength; even a people who will love others as they love themselves and will fearlessly advance My Kingdom . Be and become My army in the earth … skipping over the mountains, leaping over walls, and dancing the dance of victory with Me.

Hell = the place of eternal torment, the final abode of the unrighteous - where they suffer eternal punishment.
Dear ones, Hell is a real place, sadly many people will make that choice everyday! I have heard people say that they have hell here on earth, they already live in hell- NO!!! . There are many scriptures in the "Word of God" to read: I encourage you to open and read the Bible!
Lets take a peak at what Hell will be like. . . .
Day 1 As you pass through the doorway of death darkness overtakes you, walking away from the light. The atmosphere lacks joy; there is no laughter! Only gray, sullen, lifelessness - as you begin to realize that there are no exits here in hell.
You feel like a traveler in a foreign land. Nothing looks familiar. In the depths of darkness, the stench is horrendous! Like the smell of burning sulfur, and decaying bodies rotting away in the darkness. The only sounds you hear are the sounds of weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth. Of souls crying out in the darkness.
You become aware of time. Almost obsessed with it! What seems like eternity to you has only been one day. And you begin to realize that you are in this place forever!
Day 2 The cries of souls dying in their sins is deafening! You cannot help them! You can't even save yourself. You struggle to open your eyes, to focus, but it seems useless. Everything looks smeared, like charcoal clinging to its barren walls. There is no color. No signs of life. Heaviness overtakes you, as hot, searing, intense heat consumes your body yet you remain alive, in agony in this flame!
Day 3 You look around, blinking your eyes to strain, to focus. You reach for the walls, for rocks, for something - for anything to hold onto! But there is nothing. Nothing but darkness. You kick your feet, flailing your arms, until you are too exhausted to move. Too weary to think. Pains of agony shoots through your body. Just when you thought you couldn't endure it any longer, you are faced with another dilema, as you sob in the darkness.
Day 4 You stumble among the sea of faces, of souls as helpless as you. They open their mouths as to speak, but nothing comes out. Only the sounds you hear are the weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth, of souls crying in the darkness. Your throat feels so dry, parched, like you've been stranded in a desert. What seems like eternity, has only been a few days! What you would give for a sip of water to cool your tongue, but even that simplest request is denied. Your thoughts turn home to your loved ones, what you would do to warn them of this place! Days of your life is replayed in your memory.Tormenting your mind and soul.
Day 5 You are keenly aware that this is your future. The life that you have chosen. What you would give to turn back the hands of time, to accept Jesus'Christ as your Savior! Now you have time - But He has no time for you.
Day 6 It's only been six days since you've been here. What is that in the endless line of eternity ? In the darkness you see a new arrival, its familiar terror in his eyes that asks questions, that no one seems to answer. You open your mouth as to speak but nothing comes out, only groans in the darkness. Eternity stretches out before you as you try to fathom how long forever is. No glow of light. No hope inthe darkness. You begin to beg - to plead with God, but your voice slips into the darkness and is lost. You look around to assess your situation. Your mind laboring to fathom just how long eternity is. Forever is forever, and ever and ever!!! There's no stop, no end to this nightmare! Your body aches. Your soul screams, as yourealize how long you must suffer. Your pleas for help falls on deaf ears. In ten thousand years you will not have accomplished any thing! Not one second less to suffer, than you had ten thousand years ago! In millions of years, you will still have millions upon millions more! You look around - everything's barren not a blade of grass, to bring a smile. You can't imagine being cast into this fiery furnace, to endure it even for a moment longer! Yet Jesus' implies that most people will end up there.
If you don't know Jesus', if you have not accepted Jesus' as your Lord and Savior today please give your life to Him NOW! Wait! The fact you're reading this says you still have a chance to accept Jesus' Christ as your Savior. Scriptures say, (Acts 2:21), and it shall come to pass, that 'whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.
"Today is the day of salvation, harden not your hearts
(Romans 10:13). Right now, you can make make peace with God. You can have your sins forgiven and begin a personal relationship with Him. Also, I encourage you to develop a personal relationship with Jesus'Christ by reading the Scriptures and to pray to Him daily/nightly. Talk to Him as you would talk to a dear friend. He desires that closeness and intimacy with you! .
(Isaiah 40:11). He shall feed his flock like a sheperd: he shall gather the lambs with his arm, and carry them in his bosom, and shall gently lead those that are with young.
Recommened scripture reading: (Ezek.34:23); (John 10:1); (Heb.13:20); (1 Peter 2:25).
Have a lovely day in Jesus'.

Until around beginning in the '70s, America was pretty much 'live and let live', generally. (There are always elements of tyranny in society and government. This is what we keep down in our work as citizens, but it cannot be eradicated completely. The Founders understood this well.)
Since this is a Fallen world, there are always elements of tyranny. However, so long as there is also always Eternal Vigilance, and the resolve to ACT against them, those elements will always be kept safely at bay.
For any here that can't remember, Liberty pervaded the atmosphere, and Freedom was a sweet savor in our nostrils and on our tongues. Ie: It was so thick you could taste it, and trust me, it is gone.
I Clearly Remember bits of Freedom and Liberty in my own lifetime - a very sweet savor Indeed. And it is gone Only through STUPIDITY and Apathy, which means that it will remain gone only so long as that STUPIDITY and apathy is Not REPENTED of.
So for any young'ns here, I don't believe you can imagine the depth and breadth of your endeavors, and the surprise you will get when Liberty is restored. I'd venture to say that their REAL Education would only be beginning. Liberty is not anarchy.
Only those who call Good Evil and vice versa would ever make such a claim about Liberty...
they're not called the ENEMY for nothing, for their Objectives are the most Vile and Wicked...to transform this world into a veritable HELL ON EARTH.
Liberty comes with attendant responsibilities - honesty, honor, integrity, objectivity, and some more tangibles and specifics. But the most VITAL PREREQUESITE of all is GODLINESS... from which VIRTUE, without which LIBERTY CANNOT EXIST, Derives!!!
Psalm 45 And I will walk at LIBERTY : for I seek thy precepts.
Isaiah 61:1 The Spirit of the Lord GOD [is] upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim LIBERTY to the captives, and the opening of the prison to [them that are] bound;
2 Corinthians 2:17...where the Spirit of the Lord [is], there [is] LIBERTY.
Galatians 5:1Stand fast therefore in the LIBERTY wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.

Global Positioning Satellite -vs- God's Positioning Spirit
Our earthly GPS (Global Positioning Satellite) system is a worldly tool to guide you to your desired destination by displaying a map picture, and a voice, prompting you when and where to turn to reach your destination, so you won't be "lost". If you make a wrong turn, a voice prompt will say "re-calculating" and will give you directions to get you back on course toward your destination. This GPS system also shows what time you should arrive at your destination. The system can also locate fuel stations, food, airports, hospitals, etc., etc.
Our Spiritual GPS (God's Positioning Spirit) system is a Godly system for guidance by God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit, which can prevent you from being "lost". The Holy Spirit can prompt you, lead and guide you, in the direction you should go.
If you listen to the "small voice" prompting you by the Holy Spirit, you can turn up the volume so you can hear the Holy Spirit. You can re-program your mind to better follow His guidance, by reading His instruction book (the Bible), and communication with Him through prayer. Your main destination is heaven.
Spiritually speaking, the other GPS system may provide good guidance here on earth but in the end, your use of only the earthly system, will not lead you to heaven, therefore you may end up in the lake of fire, instead of heaven.
With the earthly GPS system, you can program the GPS to lead you to your earthly "home" regardless of where you are at. However, the Spiritual GPS system, if followed, can lead you to your "heavenly home".
Which system are you using?

it gives us new natures,
it makes us love what we hated and hate what we loved,
it sets us in a new road;
it makes our habits different,
it makes our thoughts different,
it makes us different in private,
and different in public.
C. H. Spurgeon (on conversion)
“I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you will be clean; I will cleanse you from all your impurities and from all your idols. I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh. And I will put my Spirit in you and move you to follow my decrees and be careful to keep my laws.” – Ezekiel 36: 25-27
“Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. And that is what some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.”
1 Corinthians 6:9-11
My Heart, My desire, is that your words will bear good fruit. When you speak, those that hear will be affected; depending upon their heart condition and upon their desire to honor Me. When you are speaking My words, there is power greater than your own words, for there is a breaking, a tearing and a blasting that occurs.
Those that have a heart to follow Me will be encouraged to do right. Those that have a heart to follow their own selfish desires will be stirred up to silence you, to kill you and to cause My words to stop. This is the work of the religious spirit and this is the very thing that happened when My Son was on the earth.
Do not think it strange that when you speak My words that the religious spirit does everything it can to destroy you and kill you, after all you are My weapon, in My Hand, to deal judgment to all that oppose My Kingdom.
Continue to speak My words.
Continue to encourage My holy people.
No matter the venue.
No matter the resistance.
I have called you to be My witnesses [martyrs] and as My testimony goes out, the enemy will suffer great loss. Many do not know how they are being used by the religious spirit. Pray for them, just as My Son prayed for them: Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.
This will keep your heart from being wounded and it will maintain the right heart condition in you. But do not allow the religious ones to silence you. They wanted to silence My Son, but He did not listen to their rebellion. Instead He fearlessly spoke My words.
Frequent the places of liberty, for these are the places where My Spirit is moving and where My Spirt is honored above the works and programs of men.
Become a Holy Spirit pleaser, not a people pleaser. Honor Me, as you honor the Holy Spirit. At this appointed time and at this appointed season, I counsel you to speak directly to the religious spirit, cursing it and its root of Jezebel.
It is time this foul root be withered up in My Church. Allow My power to flow from your lips in faith.
Speak to this mountain and it will surely move.

My holy people; don’t be afraid. Fear not.

Come deeper in the Spirit.
Friday, March 12, 2010
My holy people; is there any question, is there any doubt, is there anything unclear or uncertain about what I am saying here? You are to be joyful at all times. Does that mean there is a certain time you are to be joyful and a time you are not to be joyful? No. I have declared to you that you are to be joyful at all times.
Be joyful when people persecute you.
Be joyful when circumstances fail.
Be joyful when the enemy has seemingly won a victory.
Yes, even be joyful when the religious spirit strikes out at you in desperation.
You are to be joyful when things don’t work out the way you had hoped.
You are to be joyful when the tire is flat on your car.
You are to be joyful when you are dealt a bad hand in life.
And yes, you are to be joyful when sorrow has come upon your loved ones.
My love for you should be the barometer of how you live, not the circumstances of life, nor the expectations of others. As you keep your eyes fixed upon Me, you are able to have a heart that is free from hurt. You may experience the pains of life, but not the broken heart of love forever lost.
You see, no matter what happens to you, My love for you will never be lost, and I will never by any means forsake you. So, you see, it is possible to look in the face of loss and pain and strife and laugh with the utmost joy, knowing that no matter how hard the enemy tries to defeat you, he cannot! For none of these things by any means can keep My love from you.
Some would say that kind of joy draws attention to oneself and is not appropriate. I would say My Heart of love has already done that and I say you are worth My full attention.
This is not weakness, but this is your utmost strength. Therefore, My holy people, be strong in My joy. Laugh, sing, dance, rejoice and make a spectacle of the love that I have shed abroad in your heart.
Do not hold back, do not restrain yourself, but instead … always be joyful!
My love; My lovely one … come away with Me! Let us enjoy the splendor of our love: Dancing together on the mountain of victory. Allow Me to teach you to dance the dance of love, and we will experience the joys that most can never enjoy.
My beautiful bride-to-be; see Me and rise in joy to experience the heightened love of My Kingdom. Allow My joy to overflow from your heart. A joy that no religious spirit can diminish and a joy that no man can take from you.
Enter into the inner chambers of My love for you.

God raised up the Lord, and he will raise us up too by his power. 1 Corinthians 6:14
My holy people; rest from your labors and allow Me to raise you up. So many in this hour are attempting by their own power to raise themselves.
Through prayer, intercession and the Holy Spirit, many are trying to ascend on their own, rather than relying upon My power to do so.
I have prepared a place for you and I have also promised to come and receive you unto Myself so that you may be with Me in that place.
Don’t you know that is by My power alone that you are able to do so?
Allow Me to teach you, allow Me to show you, allow Me to lead you to that place by My power. For it is by resurrection power alone that you may be raised.
Seek My Face. Call upon My Name. Allow My power to do what no man can do for you.
Let Me raise you to the place I have prepared for you.

That the way down is the way up,
That to be low is to be high,
That the broken heart is the healed heart,
That the contrite spirit is the rejoicing spirit,
That the repenting soul is the victorious soul,
That to have nothing is to possess all,
That to bear the cross is to wear the crown,
That to give is to receive,
That the valley is the place of vision.
“O Lord, open my lips, and my mouth will declare your praise. You do not delight in sacrifice, or I would bring it; you do not take pleasure in burnt offerings. The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart, O God, you will not despise.” – Psalm 51: 15-17

In this world there will always be something enticing you to worry.
That is the nature of a fallen, fractured planet:
Things are not as they should be.
So the temptation to be anxious is constantly with you, trying to worm its way into your mind.
The best defense is continual communication with ME, richly seasoned with thanksgiving.
Awareness of MY Presence fills your mind with Light and Peace, leaving no room for fear.
This awareness lifts you up above your circumstances, enabling you to see problems from MY perspective.
Live close to ME! Together we can keep the wolves of worry at bay.
“Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life? Since you cannot do this very little thing, why do you worry about the rest?” Luke 12:25-26
“Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus. Do not put out the Spirit's fire; do not treat prophecies with contempt. Test everything. Hold on to the good. Avoid every kind of evil. May God himself, the God of peace, sanctify you through and through. May your whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.” 1 Thessalonians 5:16-23
