These times can be seen as frightening times or incredible times. I choose to see them as incredible times as we witness the Holy Spirit inspired words of God's prophecies being fulfilled. These are incredible times affording us the opportunity to put our money where our faith is and truly stand on God's Word and believe Him to fulfill His promises to us to prosper us, not harm us, to give us hope and a future, for us to pray to Him and He will listen, to seek Him with all our hearts and to be set free. (Jeremiah 29:11-13) The spirit of fear is rife in our world, which we know is not a spirit God gave us, He gave us a spirit of power, love and a sound mind. (2 Tim. 1:7) Thus, this is our opportunity to rise up in Jesus Christ's strength and rebuke the spirit of fear. It's our opportunity to repent of fear and the need to control and micromanage our lives and the lives of our loved ones because we have not given God full authority over our and their lives. God made us for these times; to rise up as true prayer warriors for Jesus Christ and declare His Word and Truth over all the earth, beginning with us declaring His truth over our lives, the lives of our children and family as a whole, our church, country and the world.
This is an opportunity to rise up in Jesus Christ and obey His call to repentance and follow Him. Our world is being overtaken by false prophets and the spirit of Antichrist is rife in society, but we need not fall prey to the deception Satan is spreading over the earth. God has made it clear to us throughout Scripture that He will deliver us, protect us and save us from the mess our world is in. Yes, there is suffering and we have suffered and will experience tribulation and trials, as Jesus Himself did, but if we rest on Him and believe Him, He will go ahead of us and make a way for us just like He did for the Israelites when He parted the Red Sean and the Jordan River. It's time for us to BELIEVE the words of the messengers He sent to not only warn us of what is coming, has arrived, and what will come, but to be prepared and ready to move when He tells us to. God is making a way for us!
Satan wants us to die in our sin without having repented and accepted Jesus Christ as our Lord and Saviour because he knows we will then be denied access into the Kingdom of Heaven and spend eternity in the Lake of Fire. He wants us to fall for his glamorous and deceitful temptations. He wants us to believe the poisonous honey-coated words of his demonic messengers and deny God's Truth. But let's not! Instead, unlike the disobedient and unbelieving Israelites, let's rise up and walk with God. Let's turn our ears to listen to God's Word and not the lies and interpretations of man. Let us NOT lean on our own understanding and our own "truth" but on God's truth. Let's reject the philosophies and foolish wisdom of man, "....where is the philosopher of this age? Has God not made foolish the wisdom of the world?" (1 Cor. 1:20). Let's reject the intelligence of man; "For it is written: 'I will destroy the wisdom of the wise; the intelligence of the intelligent I will frustrate." (1 Cor. 1:19) Let's turn away from the words of man lest we be deceived by their fancy words, ideas and false solutions and focus instead ONLY on God's Word - "See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the elemental spiritual forces of this world rather than of Christ." (Col. 2:8)
Instead, let's call on the Lord, and "...He will answer us and tell us great and unsearchable things we do not know." (Jeremiah 33:3) Let us BELIEVE Christ and follow Him because "....He is the head over every power and authority." (Col 2:10) Why must we BELIEVE and lean ONLY on God's Word? Because "The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with how Satan works. He will use all sorts of displays of power through counterfeit miracles (vaccines for one), signs and wonders that serve the lie (false peace and empty solutions), and all the ways that wickedness deceives those who are perishing (those who are unsaved and reject Jesus Christ as the ONLY Authority and Saviour of the world). They perish because because they refused to love the truth and to be saved. For this reason God sent them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness." (2 Thes. 2:9-12) Words in brackets are my input.
Rebellion against God by choosing to believe the demons posing as new age and religious gurus, ascended masters, benevolent angels and spirit guides WILL RESULT in eternal condemnation because it's choosing to side with Satan. Satan is already deceiving millions of people with his fake religion known as the New Age religion which has seeped into the hearts and homes of gullible non-believers and believers alike. He is deceiving people into trusting and believing in humans for cures and solutions to the current global pandemic, and by causing chaos and crippling the world economy, setting humanity up to receive the the lawless one. Billions will buy into the deception because they have chosen to focus on man's wisdom, traditions, intelligence and philosophies and not on God's proven Word of Truth! "For the secret power of lawlessness is already at work; but the one who now holds it back will continue to do so till he is taken out of the way. And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will overthrow with the breath of His mouth and destroy by the splendour of His coming." (2 Thes. 2:7-8)
It's time to pick a side - Jesus Christ or Satan. There are ONLY TWO SIDES! If you reject Jesus Christ you have chosen Satan! Reject the lies of the enemy trying to convince you that God's love will result in everyone entering the Kingdom of Heaven. Reject the lies that the devil does not exist. He does. The Bible tells us so. Resist the desire to believe empty promises of peace and prosperity that do not align with scripture! "For you know very well that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. While people are saying, 'Peace and safety,' destruction will come on them suddenly, as labour pains on a pregnant woman and they will not escape." (1 Thes. 5:2-3) Refuse to believe and accept "star brothers and sisters" and the disclosure of advanced technology being the saviours we've been waiting for. ONLY Jesus Christ saves. Jesus Christ Himself said: "For false messiahs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible even the elect. See I have told you in advance." (Matt. 24:24-25) We have been warned. Our Father God Almighty through Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit have warned us and given us everything we need to know in order to not be deceived, and to be prepared for what is here now and what is soon to come. The best of all is that He assures and reassures us throughout Scripture that we need not be afraid because He will protect us, provide for us and lead us to safety no matter the situation.
Thus, my fellow believers in Jesus Christ renew your mind in the Word of God if you find yourself slipping into fear and doubt. Rebuke the spirit of fear and control in the name of Jesus Christ! Renounce fear and confusion! Let us pray fervently for those trapped in the false religions Satan has set up to lead billions astray. Scripture tells us we cannot stop people from falling prey to Satan's lies and believing the seducing spirits seducing them into accepting the New Age religion which is now a global one world religion. The Catholic Church, for one, has not only accepted it, but Pope Francis is preaching it. "Christian" Pastors all over the world are teaching it - the prosperity gospel, as well as those churches and preachers who teach and preach anything not aligning with the Word of God. But, we can pray for as many as possible to be snatched from the fire. "But dear friends, remember what the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ foretold. They said to you, 'In the last times there will be scoffers who will follow their own ungodly desires.' These are the people who divide you, who follow mere natural instincts and do not have the Spirit. But, you, dear friends, by building yourselves up in your most holy faith and praying in the Holy Spirit, keep yourselves in God's love as you wait for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ to bring you to eternal life. Be merciful to those who doubt; save others by snatching them from the fire, to others show mercy, mixed with fear - hating even the clothing stained by corrupted flesh." (Jude 1:17-22) Faith and prayer are our most powerful weapons, so lets pray in faith!
In today's new release, Lesson 28 (listed on my website as lesson 29) of our free Bible study series - Firm Foundations, we see how the Israelites rejected God's messengers whom He sent to warn them of what would happen should they continue to worship idols, false gods and believe the lies of false teachers and prophets. This is an awesome lesson and one I urge you to listen to whether you have followed the whole series or not. We CANNOT AFFORD to delay fostering an intimate relationship with our Creator, nor can we be complacent when it comes to learning more about God's nature and His truth. No astrologer, psychic medium, tarot card reader, numerologist, shaman or occultist can predict the future and advise you in the way the HOLY and TRUE Word of God can! In fact, God commands us NOT to follow them because their advice is given by demonic impostors posing as "angels of light." "For such people are false apostles, deceitful workers, masquerading as apostles of Christ. And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. It is not surprising, then, if his servants also masquerade as servants as righteousness." (2 Cor. 11:13-15)
In today's recording I also refer to a video, which I've included below. Please listen to today's recording to put this video into context.
The Word of God has proven over and over to be true. It is the ONLY book in the history of the world in which EVERY prophecy to date has been fulfilled and we are witnessing the Book of Revelation being fulfilled as we speak. History can prove its authenticity like no other book in existence. I choose Jesus Christ! The day will come when we will know for certain who picked the right side. I walked with Satan as a psychic, trance voice channel and astrologer for 25 years of my life. I have witnessed and experienced first hand Satan's Kingdom, thus I can confidently attest that Jesus Christ is the One and Only True King and Saviour of mankind.
God bless and keep you and your family,
