Set The Captives Free!

This just came in! Randomly impressed I believe by the Holy Spirit.

If you can friends, please join me to pray for every man, male in bondage!

Many are in all sorts of bondages, trapped, lost and do not even know because they have been blinded.

Those that are aware and know that they are in bondage do not know the way out!

Father Lord, God Almighty, you said the lawful captive shall be delivered, how much less those that are unlawfully in captivity. We ask Lord that everyone in captivity be released in Jesus mighty name.

Captivity is not limited to prison, many are walking freely, working and engaged in many activities, yet imprisoned in their minds, hearts, and emotion, captivated by pursuits, pornography, strange women, and inordinate affection for strange things.

Many more have lost the essence of their manliness, reduced to puppets by the wicked. They no longer have the drive, the instinct to act like men, to lead, provide, protect, and champion the cause of humanity, and the fruits of their loins.

Raise a war cry friends for the male man to be awakened! To rise up from their slumber!

Almighty Father, save your sons from destruction. Release them from every force holding them captive. Give sight to their eyes, hearing to their ears, let their hearts be tuned to know, so they can call upon you for deliverance.

Set the captives of the mighty free oh Lord our God in Jesus mighty name. Amen

Shalom!

Hypocrisy! Idol Worship!

Just a thought!

Daniel 3:13 to Daniel 4

It is ironic that we read the story of the three Hebrew boys refusing to bow before any other God other than Jehova and we celebrate them.

Come to the present, we label anyone taking a stand against evil, and worship of any human as rebellious and defiant. The present day believer has mastered the art of compromise to the extent of worshiping the created rather than the creator.

There will always be few brave ones with the Spirit of God like these Hebrew boys and Mordecai in the book of Esther that refuses to bow before strange gods come what may.

Nebuchadnezzar built a statue, some today have made gods of things and others. They will drop Holy things for you to pick up just to see you bow before them. Men and women reduced to “honoring” mere men, fearing them more than God Almighty Himself! Denying the scriptures but embracing the doctrine of man.

Any strange desire, and demand to be worshipped is not of God. It is a desire from the pit of Hell and should be resisted at all cost.

Anyone that has been elevated to gods in this life and are allowing others to worship them as gods be warned. It is a matter of time. Remember King Nebuchadnezzar!

You shall have no other gods before me. Exodus 20:3

You shall not worship any other God Exodus 34:14

I am the Lord your God, who brought you out if Egypt, out of the land of slavery. 7 You shall have no other gods before me. Deuteronomy 5

Who and what are you worshiping? …….

You can repent today. Worship the Lord your God and Him only shall you serve!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

How Long More? Rise Up!

Mark 9:14 – 29 When they came to the other disciples, they saw a large crowd around them and the teachers of the law arguing with them. 15 As soon as all the people saw Jesus, they were overwhelmed with wonder and ran to greet him.

Jesus asked and responded as follows:

  • “What are you arguing with them about” he asked – verse 16
  • “You unbelieving generation,” Jesus replied, “how long shall I stay with you? How long shall I put up with you? Bring the boy to me.” verse 19
  • “How long has he been like this?” – Verses 21
  • “‘If you can’?” Said Jesus. “Everything is possible for one who believes,” – Verse 23
  • “You deaf and mute spirit,” he said, ” I command you, come out of him and never enter him again.” Verse 25

26 The spirit shrieked, convulsed him violently and came out. The boy looked so much like a corpse that many said, “He’s dead.” 27 But Jesus took him by the hand and lifted him to his feet, and he stood up. 28 After Jesus had gone indoors, his disciples asked him privately, ” Why couldn’t we drive it out?”

  • He replied, ” This kind can come out only by prayer.” Verse 29

Think about this friends:

How long have you been arguing with the issues of your life? You have been going back and forth, negotiating, compromising, and yet no solution in sight.

How long are you going to continue in this situation? How long are you willing to put up with the unbelief in your heart? The impossibility whispering in your ears! Why will you not take it to the Cross? Be determined to rise up!

Think about it! How long have you been like this? How long more are you willing to remain the same, going around in circle without remedy?

If you can conceive it in your heart, precipitated by love for God, love for others and love for yourself, it is attainable. Everything is possible for those that believe.

You then need to/ have to cast down everything that has raised itself up against the backdrop of the Word of God, the plan of heaven for your life, and your freedom in Christ Jesus. 2 Corinthians 10:5

Stand upon The Word, I say again, stand – Isaiah 40:8 The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever.

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Mind Governed By Flesh! Death!

What is governing my mind? What is governing yours friends? We do need to examine ourselves regularly so we are not deceived by the deceitfulness of sin.

It is so easy to be carried away with activities that nourish our flesh, our ego, while neglecting the concerns of God, his people, and choice possession.

Therefore, brothers and sisters, we have an obligation – but it is not to the flesh, to live according to it. 13 For if you live according to the flesh, you will die? But if by the Spirit you put to death the misdeeds of the body you will live. 14 For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God. Romans 8:12-14

We must live and breathe to please God by faith. A heart governed by the Spirit is not about self-aggrandizement but humble, modest, and selfless!

Father, you are our center, our hedges, boundaries, our all! Let us reduce that Christ may increase in us I pray in Jesus mighty name Amen.

Sight! Village! Past!

Mark 8:22-25 I often wonder why Jesus acted the way he acted many times in the Scriptures! Why take a blind man out of the most familiar place he knows?

To see afresh? Maybe see differently! Or, probably Christ took him out of the village because it was the “village” that clouded his eyes?

Jesus also warned the blind man not to go back to the “village”! Jesus did not want him to broadcast him that I understand, but I also think it means more.

I don’t know what village means to you, but for me, it means, don’t go back to being blind to your status in Christ Jesus, acting small to fit in, staying in that box, devaluing yourself, doubting the power at work in you and much more!

Some of us have been delivered from Spiritual blindness, this is a warning not to go back into ignorance. Don’t look back at the past longingly friends, there is nothing back there for you!

Move forward in the capability of the Most High God! You can see now, don’t pretend you can’t! Shine your light and let the world see that great things Christ has done!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

What Defiles! The Heart!

Again Jesus called the crowd to him and said, “Listen to me, everyone, and understand this. 18 Nothing outside a person can defile them by going into them by going into them. Rather, it is what comes out of a person that defiles them.Mark 7:14

My first thought when reading this was a question, “What about sex, alcohol and drugs?”

But then I got my answer in verse 18 ‘Are you so dull?” he asked.. “Don’t you see that nothing that enters a person from the outside can defile them? 19 For it doesn’t go into their heart but into their stomach, and then out of the body. 20 He went on:

What comes out of a person is what defiles them. 21 For it is from within, out of a person’s heart, that evil thoughts come – sexual immorality, theft, murder, 22 adultery, greed, malice, deceit, lewdness, envy, slander, arrogance and folly. 23 All these evils come from inside and defile a person.” Mark 7:20-23

This is where most of us are caught, our thought life, not seen, secret, but very potent! This is where we plan to kill, steal, murder, manipulate, commit sexual sins and all. The sin that easily beset us occurs here, in our hearts. I have caught myself many a time and I must say, very disappointed that such thought could even come to me. The battlefield of our minds!

This is why King Solomon said in Proverbs 4:23 Keep your heart with all diligence for out of it flows the issues of life.

Premeditated murder, adultery, fornication, covetousness, manipulation – sorcery, envy, jealousy and all kinds of evil stem from that little seed sown, watered, pruned and nursed to fruition – this is what defiles.

I don’t know about you but I am asking for mercy here. I have had some very bad thoughts and the Holy Spirit does check me and I will be like, “Where does that even come from?” I mean, I am holy, righteous, redeemed, speaking in tongues, why would such thought come up within me?

This is where I demolish every arguments and every pretensions that sets itself up against the knowledge of God for my life and destiny, and I bring every thought captive to make it obedient to Christ. And then I am ready to punish every act of disobedience, because my obedience is complete in Christ Jesus. 2 Corinthians 10:5-6 personified.

Father, I know that there are at least one other person with me saying I don’t know why, but often than I want to acknowledge, I have entertained bad thoughts, passed lewd comments, acted in certain ways that does not befit me as an ambassador of The Gospel, I ask for mercy today Lord, forgive me and help me by your Holy Spirit to nip evil thought in the bud.

Almighty God, let evil not fester in my heart, saturate my being with your presence, Holy Spirit I ask in Jesus name.

Thank you Father for pruning and molding us to be Christlike! We are open Lord for your correction, and thank you for a receptive heart.

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!
