Anti-Christ?

How can we be aware of the anti-Christ? a man asked me.

“Who is a liar but he who denies that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist who denies the                   

Father and the Son.”

1 John 2:22

(also, see 1 John 2:18-23)

My first thought to answer him is that you need to know the Word of God, and be filled with His Spirit. Jesus says, “the Spirit of Truth will tell you all things.” in John 16:13.

Remembering teachings from Daniel and Revelation about the end of time and the anti-Christ; he’s going to be popular and perform miracles, he’ll be a false teacher simply because he disagrees with the Word of God and is God’s enemy and our enemy.

“God is rich in mercy” Ephesians 2:4

**Read the Bible and allow the Holy Spirit to talk to you, and you won’t get fooled.

 

 

 

I Will Shake All Things

Haggai 2:4-9, “Yet now be strong…for I am with you…Once more I will shake heaven and earth, the sea and dry land…I will shake all nations…I will fill this temple with glory…. And in this place I will give peace.”

Derek Prince Ministries gives a biblical prophecy on end times.  There’s a lot of voices out there, especially now. Do they match the Word of God?  Some prophets may be well-meaning, but it helps you all to know God’s word so you can discern the truth personally. I don’t want you to be left behind.

Someone in a prayer group said that Derek Prince had a deliverance ministry. That’s only part right – He had a Jesus ministry.

“He cast out the spirits with a word, and healed all who were sick.”  Matthew 8:16-17

It’s an Oppression

Almost awake, felt a heaviness on my breath.  Heard in my spirit, “it’s an oppression.” I rebuked the oppression in Jesus’ name & felt immediately normal.

Isaiah 61:3, “…To give them…the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness…”

Derek Prince taught that depression or heaviness is an evil spirit.  Nearly 2 years ago, a similar thing happened – I prayed against it.  The following day, I heard a friend’s baby had shortness of breath at the same time as me.

When a sudden illness comes upon you, pray against it for yourself and anyone else who may have it, whether friend or stranger.  This is how God heals through people like Randy Clark, Founder of Global Awakening – https://globalawakening.com/ .

 

Boast in the Lord

I will bless the Lord at all times;
His praise shall continually be in my mouth.
My soul shall make its boast in the Lord;
The humble shall hear of it and be glad.
Oh, magnify the Lord with me,
And let us exalt His name together.

Psalm 34:1-3

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that You’re always near, always true, always honest, always think the best way for us.  I’ve been prideful and humbled, and bless Your name O God, nothing surprises You, but You want us to need You, to come to You and seek Your forgiveness, Your Spirit, Your Presence.  Bless You, dear God and peace to You. Amen

Rice Pudding Recipe

The earth is the Lord’s, and all things therein

Psalm 24:1

Ingredients:

  • 14 ounces Whole Milk
  • 4 ounces Rice
  • 1/8 teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 1 ounce Raisins (almost one small box)
  • 1 tablespoon Butter
  • 1 Banana

Mix milk, rice, raisins and cinnamon together in a pot and bring to a boil, while stirring a bit. Lower flame, cover while stirring occasionally till rice is all softened, add a little more milk if needed, about 30 minutes. Add butter and let it melt in. Smash in banana leaving some lumps.  Serve.

Cooking the rice in milk takes a lot longer than in water and the banana gives it a Caribbean feel. Adapted from cafedelites.com/easy-cinnamon-raisin-rice-pudding/

Highway

“The highway of the upright is to depart from evil;
He who keeps his way preserves his soul.”             Proverbs 16:17

“The way of the lazy man is like a hedge of thorns,
But the way of the upright is a highway.”   Proverbs 15:19

 

“For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
So are My ways higher than your ways,
And My thoughts than your thoughts.

10 “For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven,
And do not return there,
But water the earth,
And make it bring forth and bud,
That it may give seed to the sower
And bread to the eater,

So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth;
It shall not return to Me [a]void,
But it shall accomplish what I please,
And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.

Isaiah 55:9-10

Go Out / See People

“Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching.”                                  Hebrews 10:25

Talk to People, they are hungry for human connection. Love them. Let churches create online chats, meetings, prayers.  Gather in homes in small numbers and stay safe, using distancing methods.

Signs Are Everywhere

Confess your sins and He who is faithful and just will forgive you and cleanse you from all unrighteousness, (1 John 1:9)

A friend of a friend OD’d on drugs.  Warning sign to us all to get right with God.

The friend who related it to me said she was addicted to clothes, and other things, she repented.  Glory to God.

Father God, You don’t want anyone to perish.  Comfort the family & friends of those caught in this plague. Save us oh Lord, in Jesus’ name.
