Mr. Nice Guy…

…goes to hell.

A good pastor friend told me once I had to learn confrontation.  It was so biblical and he was right.

“More than that, blessed are those who hear the word of God and keep it!” Jesus in Luke 11:28

“Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts.”              Paul in Colossians 3:16 (NIV)

It makes me feel bad for the Pastor who wanted to be well liked and never corrected anyone. The congregation suffered from devil worship and alcoholism.

“Dear brothers and sisters, not many of you should become teachers in the church, for we who teach will be judged more strictly.”            James 3:1 (NLT)

 

 

“No One Will Bother You”

“The angel of the Lord encamps all around those who fear Him, And delivers them.” Psalm 34:7

When this young man, Michael, said the above, defending me from a cursing and drinking man, I proclaimed, “You are someone’s son!” And, “You’re like the archangel.”

“Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.”  Hebrews 13:2 (NKJV)

Jude 1:9, (KJV), “Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee.”

 

 

Stand Up For Jesus

“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.”  Jesus in John 3:16

Jesus Christ the only son of God, Praise You, Lord Jesus for all You’ve done for us, who are Your children, Your friends.  “It is finished,” You said.  Forever & ever Your work is complete, and You are seated on the throne in Heaven next to the Father.  Amen.

We are hurting for You, Lord, when people use Your name in vain and ignore who You are.

“When Jesus had received the sour wine, he said, “It is finished.” Then bowing his head, he gave up his spirit.” John 19:30 (KJV)

 

Layers

“For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.” Ephesians 6:12

“While we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen.  For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.” 2 Corinthians 4:18

“For we walk by faith, not be sight.” 2 Corinthians 5:7

Layers of atmosphere, spirits good & evil.  Pay attention to Him, our Father.  Agree with His Holy Spirit.  A recent meditation class wants you to empty your mind, but fill it with what?

“I know a man in Christ…caught up to the third heaven.” 2 Corinthians 12:2

“…he was caught up into Paradise…” 2 Corinthians 12:4

The Anointing

“But the anointing which you have received from Him abides in you, and you do not need that anyone teach you; but as the same anointing teaches you concerning all things, and is true, and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you will abide in Him.” 

1 John 2:27

“For if our heart condemns us, God is greater than our heart, and knows all things. Beloved, if our heart does not condemn us, we have confidence toward God.”

1 John 3:20-21

“It shall come to pass in that day
That his burden will be taken away from your shoulder,
And his yoke from your neck,
And the yoke will be destroyed because of the anointing oil.”         Isaiah 10:27

“You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;
You anoint my head with oil;
My cup runs over.”                   Psalm 23:5

“And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God;”Ephesians 6:17

 

“Keep Preaching,”

I told a man who was harassed for sharing the good news of Jesus, and another man preaching on the bus.

“My word will not return to Me void.” Isaiah 55:11

“Woe’s me, if I preach not the gospel!” Paul exclaims in 1 Corinthians 9:16

“As you go, preach, say ‘The kingdom of heaven is at hand.'” says Jesus in Matt 10:7

“The Spirit of the LORD is upon Me, because He has anointed Me to preach the gospel to the poor…” prophesies Jesus in Luke 4:18

Let God fight for you, He’ll enjoy it

heard this in my spirit a couple weeks ago. God is always speaking.

Lord, help us to diligently  listen to Your voice.

“The wicked plots against the just, and gnashes at him with his teeth. The Lord laughs at him, for He sees that his day is coming.”             Psalm 37:12-13 (NKJV)

“The Lord will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace.” Exodus 14:14

“….the battle is the Lord’s, and He will give you into our hands.”   1 Samuel 17:47

“O Israel, you are destroyed, but your help is from Me.”  Hosea 13:9

“For behold, the Lord comes out of His place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity; the earth will also disclose her blood, and will no more cover her slain.” Isaiah 26:21

Stars Falling

“Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken.” Jesus warns in Matthew 24:29 (NKJV)

“Then the stars of the sky fell to the earth like green figs falling from a tree shaken by a strong wind.”

Revelation 6:13 (NLT)

Stars falling represent false teachers in current end-times, according to John Voulgaris. Christian Pastors and teachers who are sidetracked away from the true gospel. Beware! and check everything with the Word.

Jesus Is Not Offended

Are you?

“Now John answered Him, saying, “Teacher, we saw someone who does not follow us casting out demons in Your name, and we forbade him because he does not follow us.”

“39 But Jesus said, “Do not forbid him, for no one who works a miracle in My name can soon afterward speak evil of Me. 40 For he who is not against us is on our side. 41 For whoever gives you a cup of water to drink in My name, because you belong to Christ, assuredly, I say to you, he will by no means lose his reward.”   Mark 9:38-41 (NKJV)

If you’re offended that people are going to a different church than yours; or think they’re only going because of free food or slick marketing, you need to pray for them. And ask yourself if you’re in competition.  It could be those people are after the Holy Spirit.

 

Fearless

Fear not, for I am with you;
Be not dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you,
Yes, I will help you,
I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.’”   

Isaiah 41:10 (NKJV), courtesy ://www.biblegateway.com/

“Do not fear, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.” says Jesus in Luke 12:32

Is God trying to tell you something?  Three times, I saw the word “fearless” on a shirt, sign, etc, alright, one sign closer up actually read, “Peerless (Tire),” but the first impression is fearless.

Also, heard in my spirit, “he can’t hurt you.”  Trust in the Lord and He’ll help you (Prov 3:5-6)
