POWER OF PRAYING CHURCH

15488463249361050413306.jpgJesus said some problems are solved by prayer and fasting “as this kind does not go out except by prayer and fasting.” So in Matthew 17:21, Bible says demon was not cast out by apostles who asked why? Jesus said, some challenges will ONLY move after prayer and fasting. Jesus, the perfect SON of God without sin fasted 40 days and nights before He chose His 12 apostles and launched His ministry. And with God all things are possible but evil stubborn demons go only by prayer and fasting. Authority and POWER given to Jesus’ disciples to cast out demons, raise the dead and heal the sick yet could not deliver a boy. Jesus said this kind comes out by prayer and fasting in Mark 9:28, 29. The Child of God must be prepared before fighting such spiritual battles in the Name of Jesus. Moses fasted 40 days on mountain to receive commandments from God made of the stone tablets in Deuteronomy 9:9-18. Moses did not eat food or drink water but returned from mountain of God to see people worship idols. Moses angrily broke the tablets of stone so went again on the mountain to fast another 40 days in Deuteronomy 9:18, 25, 26; 10:10 for the new tablets of stone of the 10 Commandments of God.15488482342401050413306.jpg

David Fasted for Child’s Illness – 2 Samuel 12:1-23

David’s adultery with Bathsheba made her pregnant after husband Uriah was killed so he took her as his wife. Nathan the prophet confronts David of his sin, he confessed and repented in 2 Samuel 12:1-14. David told by prophet the child would die after prophet left, the young boy became ill. David went into prayer and fasting for his son. He knew God said the child would die, but hoped to find grace in the eyes of God. David refused to eat while child was ill after seventh day his son died, David’s servants told him child died, cleaned himself stopped mourning and began to eat once in 2 Samuel 12:15-20. Servants were surprised by actions of king David who said the child died nothing could be done. He will see his son again in Heaven in 2 Samuel 12:23. The book of Jonah shows God sends His prophets to the nations to repent of sin. They took warnings of Jonah prophecies seriously so prayed and fasted for the forgiveness from God. This message to the people of Nineveh in Book of Jonah 3:4 is that God wants to use this example to His people to tell them to pray to Seek God’s Face. 15488539139261050413306.jpgThe king humbled himself joined fast so wore sackcloth to pray with the people to ask God to forgive them. We learn Grace of God, Mercy, HIS Compassion, Forgiveness and life lessons of attitudes, humility and HIS LOVE in the book. God surprised Jonah to change his mind not to be a preacher seeking revenge, eye for eye tooth for tooth vengeance but to forgive because God forgave Jonah and did not let him drown. Jonah was ready to take action for God to destroy them like Elijah on mount Carmel only to be shocked God forgave them. Jesus is the appointed judge of all nations to reward those who love God but punish all who hate Jesus HIS ONLY WAY to YAHWEH. Isaiah 58 : 1-12 says Cry aloud, spare not lift your voice like a trumpet to show my people their transgression and house of Jacob their sins. 3 They Seek ME daily and delight to know MY Ways as a nation that did righteousness and forsook not the ordinance of their God. They ask of ME the ordinances of justice they take delight in approaching to God. 4 Why did we fast they say and YOU see it not? Why did we afflict our soul and you did not take notice? In the day of your fast you find pleasure exact all your labours.15488454913901050413306.jpgBehold you fast for strife, debate, smite with the fist of wickedness and fast as you do this day to make your voice to be heard on high. 5 Is such a fast what I CHOSE for a day a man afflicts his soul? To bow down his head as bulrush and spread sackcloth and ashes under him yet remain wicked? Is this kind of a fast day acceptable to the LORD? 6 Is it not better if fast chosen is to lose bands of wickedness to undo heavy burdens and let oppressed go free to break every yoke? 7 Do you share your bread with the hungry and bring the poor outside into your house? When you see the naked do you cover him or hide yourself from your own flesh and blood? If you are kind 8 your Light will break forth as morning and your HEALTH shall spring forth speedily and your righteousness shall go before you and the GLORY of the LORD shall be your REWARD. 9 Then if you call, the LORD shall ANSWER; when you cry, HE shall say, Here I AM. If you take away from you the yoke of putting forth your finger and speaking vanity. 10 And if you draw out your soul to the hungry and satisfy afflicted souls; then shall your light rise from obscurity and your righteousness as noonday. 11 The LORD shall guide you continually, and satisfy your SOUL in drought and make fat your BONES: and you shall be like a well watered garden and like the spring of water whose waters fail not. 12 And they that shall be of you shall build the old waste places you shall raise foundations of MANY Generations; and you shall be called repairer of the breach restorer of paths to dwell in.15488461529861050413306.jpg

Elijah Fasted to Escape Jezebel – 1 Kings 19:4-8

Jezebel threatened to kill the prophet Elijah after he won a great victory over the prophets of Baal on Mount Carmel. Elijah fled to Beer-sheba where he left his servant. Then traveled another day into the wilderness. Elijah found a juniper tree and rested. He prayed to God to allow him to die. He did not really want to die. If he did he could have stayed where he was and let the queen take care of him. Elijah was very discouraged and lay down for a nap. An angel came and fed him in 1 Kings 19:5, 6. Elijah took the food and then went back to sleep. After being fed by the angel a second time, Elijah prepared for a great journey. The Bible says that Elijah traveled for 40 days in the strength of food until he arrived at Mount Horeb in 1 Kings 19:7, 8. This is same mountain where Moses received the 10 Commandments. It was called Mount Sinai during Moses’ time.1548845898857614764637.jpg

Ezra Fasted Mourning Over Sin – Ezra 10:6-17

The Jews returned to their land Israel after Babylonian captivity. Yet they had disobeyed God’s laws during captivity. Ezra gathered the people together to confront them for their sins. Ezra 10:6 does not say specifically how long his fast was there is indication that it lasted 3 days while waiting for the people to gather. The Bible does tell us that he did not eat any bread and only drank water during this fast. He fasted because he was mourning the sins of those who had been carried away from Israel but had finally returned. They had copied idol worship and mingled with ONE TRUE GOD’S LOVE AND POWER of Authority. Many served God but practiced occult idol rituals copied. Therefore he had to teach them Torah and Bible commands of pure dedication to God. In return God promised in HIS Covenant to listen and hear their prayer to answer them. This principle is still the same today because Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever. God is actively involves in the affairs of the earth so expects first to be consulted before taking any actions not seen psychics or fortune tellers. So God forbids HIS Children not to be involved in necromancy or any palm reading but read His WORDS for wisdom. Mixture of HIS worship with idolatory is reason HE sent enemies to defeat them to repent. GOD’S GOSPEL MESSAGE includes all the nations not just Israel so people are to repent by prayer and fasting to break curses after accepting Jesus Christ. 15488531152591050413306.jpg

Esther Fasts for Safety of the Jews – Esther 4:15-17

Mordecai heard that the Jews were to be exterminated from the kingdom of Ahasuerus. This kingdom stretched from India to Ethiopia in Esther 1:1. The reason for the genocide was because one man, Haman, did not like Mordecai and his family. He felt Mordecai did not show him proper respect. Esther a Jew but Haman did not know this. Mordecai came to his cousin Esther to ask her to petition the king to spare Jews. Because of royal tradition, not appropriate for Esther to enter king’s court without an invitation. Even as queen she could be killed approaching the king without an invitation in Esther 4:11. Mordecai told Esther that God may have given her the position in the kingdom that she had for sole purpose of saving Jewish race in Esther 4:14. She agreed to approach king, but she asked Mordecai to spread the word to the Jews that they should fast for 3 days without food or drink. She fasted in the same manner. Esther accepted in presence of king and the Jewish people were saved.15488458266931050413306.jpg

Darius Fasts For Safety of Daniel – Daniel 6:18-23

King Darius was tricked into signing a law that put his friend Daniel in grave danger. A law was proposed that for 30 days no one could pray to, or ask help from any deity or power except the king. The men who wrote the law knew that Daniel prayed three times a day to God. They had the king sign the law so that they could trap Daniel and get rid of him from the kingdom (Daniel 6:4-9). The punishment for this crime was to be cast into a den of lions. Daniel seen praying to God. He was brought before the king who had no ability to back out of the law even though Daniel was his friend. King Darius hoped Daniel’s God is Powerful enough to save Daniel from being eaten. Darius went to his home and fasted in Daniel 6:18. The Bible does not say what this fast included but it seems to indicate it was more than just food. We are told that the king did not allow music to be played that night. He also did not sleep. The king forfeited more than food for his fast. King Darius was relieved to find Daniel survived the night in the lion’s den. Daniel’s enemies out if jealousy plotted to kill him but in the end they fell into the trap set against Daniel. The king ordered all the wicked men and their families to be thrown in the lions den and they perished mauled by the lions. Daniel’s loyalty to God and his friend realised the evil plans of the enemies against Daniel. Those who are under attack by such enemies need to pray and fast for God’s Intervention in Jesus Name. Darius proclaimed Daniel’s God is the TRUE God. The king declared God’s POWER is GREATER than all other kingdoms of the earth. He proclaimed God’s KINGDOM will be established forever in Daniel 6:25-28.15488460428331050413306.jpgA "Daniel Fast" is characterized by only eating fruits, vegetables and whole grains.

Daniel Fasts for Answer to Prayer – Daniel 10:1-3

Daniel fasted and prayed to understand of a vision in Daniel 10. Verses 2 and 3 tell us fasted 3 weeks. The vision Daniel saw show what becomes of people of God in the future. Daniel’s 70 years end time visions are still happening on the earth because Daniel abstained from “pleasant bread,” meat, and wine. And Daniel’s other fast in Daniel 1:12, 15, 16, called “Daniel fast” only eating fruits, vegetables and whole grains and water. There are variety of foods appropriate for fast generally accepted guidelines. It is not the food or water abstained from or length of fast that moves God but the humble pure heart who desires to draw close to God and in return God Draws closer to reveal HIS SECRETS and future events to all those who want to know in advance to prepare against evil times. A fasting is time set aside entirely to Seek the Face of God by prayer, worship, and meditations. In the busy concrete jungle settings of life and noise pollution it can be hard to focus exclusively on God. Too many distractions, adverts are vying for your attention and time so its necessary to retreat and reflect privately in prayer for clarity of mind to hear God properly. Others depend on family and friends for advise but for spiritual warfare Jesus says fast and pray first and from time to time to grow and mature from baby Christian to a seasoned soldier of Christ.1548848546458614764637.jpg

Jesus Fasts in wilderness chose 12 – Matthew 4:1-2

Before Jesus was tempted by Satan and before He started His public ministry, He fasted 40 days. The Bible says that Jesus was led by the Holy Spirit into the wilderness in Matthew 4:1 purpose of Christ 40 days and nights was to choose 12 apostles before a personal attack by satan. Jesus defeats satan although  was hungry spiritually prepared for such a temptation that followed. A literal 40 days and nights fast took place so Jesus didn’t eat or drink. The number of days is symbolic in Bible to God and purpose or motive fasting means different things to different people. Jesus did exactly the best fast for His calling so is empowered by God to start His ministry. This fasting is possible so many people today do not eat and drink depending on assignment. These options and other options depend on a person considering fasting to God for strength to serve God to do miracles. The main point is Jesus taught disciples in scriptures to fast, to cast out demons, to raise the dead and heal the sick. That is why Jesus Mastered physical desires by not eating and drinking for Spiritual Strength, Authority, POWER over satan. The Kingdom of God suffers violence so the Spiritually violent command devil to take it by force in Jesus Name. So Jesus’ wonderful example is a command to the believers to continue apostolic ministry of Jesus on earth until Rapture and His Return to Reign and Rule all nations.

Paul Fasted After His Conversion – Acts 9:1-9

Paul persecuted faithful Christians by permission from the Jewish leadership to go to Damascus and arrest anyone who claims allegiance to Christ. On the way to Damascus Saul name is changed to Paul had personal encounter with the Lord on road to Damascus. Encounters bright light which blinded Paul, stays in Damascus, 3 days, did not eat or drink water in Acts 9:9 in repentance for all evil things he did. Paul built very strong relationship with the Lord. So in Acts 19 : 11-20, God did Special Miracles by the hands of Paul 12 from his body brought to the sick handkerchiefs or aprons, and diseases departed from them and evil spirits went out of them. 13 But certain vagabond Jews, exorcists called people with evil spirits in the name of the Lord Jesus, saying we command you by Jesus Paul preached to come out. 14 So seven sons of Sceva, a Jew and chief priest’s sons did so. 15 And evil spirit answered and said, Jesus I know, and Paul I know; but who are you? 16 The man in whom the evil spirit was leaped on them and overcame them, and prevailed against them so they fled out of house naked and wounded. 17 This was known to all Jews and Greeks dwelling at Ephesus so fear fell on them and the Name of the Lord Jesus was magnified. 18 And many believed came and confessed and show their deeds. 19 Many who used magic or spells brought their books and burned them before all men: and they counted the price, fifty thousand pieces of silver. 20 So mightily grew the WORD of GOD and Prevailed. The seven sons of Sceva couldn’t deliver the man who beat and stripped them naked because they tried to copy Jesus and Paul’s Special miracles without fasting and prayer. Others tried but the evil spirits entered them and so they had to be delivered themselves. Do not tackle demons unless trained to do so. A Gadarene demoniac had thousand demons called legion cast out entered pigs drowned in the sea in Galilee. So do not underestimate deliverance ministry to copy what you see others doing. Pray and fast and ask God to give Grace to do SPECIAL MIRACLES like Paul and Jesus and other pastors anointed today in the deliverance ministry. 15488469164191050413306.jpg

Church Elders in Antioch Fast Send Missionaries – Acts 13:1-3

Barnabas took Paul to Antioch so elders knew Barnabas actively worked to train Paul in teachings of Christianity. After a time of fasting and prayer Holy Spirit told leaders of the church to separate Paul and Barnabas for a special work in Acts 13:2, 3. These two men were sent from the church as first missionaries. Barnabas and Paul began missionary journey by preaching everywhere they went. Many more examples of fasting in the Bible but 10 above gives you insight to various reasons and types of fasts the Bible teaches. Jesus said during endtime evil unseen before and never after will take place on earth. The Churches deal with testimonies of delivered believers who share details of occult evil world they thought was helping them. As the devil’s end approaches has intensified evil attacks because time is short. This means Christians must wake up to pray and fast for GOD to SHORTEN evil days or nobody will live on earth. Prayer and fasting strengthens and empowers the believer to be in higher realms with God to defeat devil. Charles Wesley will not ordain a Methodist minister unless they commit to pray and fast on Wednesdays and Fridays every week. Yet the spirit of gluttonic partying to prove prosperous by properity gospel means obesity is the battle faced even by the Church. Prayer and fasting detoxes body and is good for health. Fasting depends on reasons for a fast, types of needs for fasting depends on physical health of person fasting. Do you have example of fasting in scripture insightful in your life?

Very insightful…I have recently resigned from permanent employment to start my own business, but things are going slow. I have considered fasting and wonder if fasting for my business’ success is the right or Christian thing to do? Would this be considered to be selfish by God?

no, it wouldn’t be selfish; just make sure you are tithing and giving offerings beyond your tithe and God should give you some insight when you are fasting.

I think it’s important to note that Daniel was NOT fasting. He was in mourning. Read Daniel 10 and notice that no where is the word “fast” used. I do not believe that the “Daniel Fast” is a biblical form of fasting. Other fasts in Scripture are complete abstinence from food sometimes both food and water. Fasting and mourning similar but separate disciplines. Sometimes mourning is accompanied by fasting, but not always. Remember Jesus said fasting in Matthew 6:16-18? we are to comb our hair, & wash our face, no indication we are fasting, only people who know what we’re doing are those who absolutely have to. Daniel was in mourning so not washing his face. It’s says in Daniel 10 did not use lotions or take care of him self at all. How could his fasting be doing exact opposite of what Jesus taught in Matthew 6? Christians do great disservice by “partial fast.” There is no biblical grounds for it. There is no substitute for a complete fast from all foods for period of time. Some practice “Daniel fast” so they want to eat a little healthier. Well that’s great, but DON’T confuse healthy eating with fasting, and certainly don’t replace wonderful spiritual discipline like fasting with something as superficial as giving up a few types of food. I hope that no one here hears me the wrong way. I’m not trying to criticize anyone who practiced the “Daniel Fast.” I’m trying to help us all understand Biblically the true and most effective way to fast.

Elijah January 6, 2015 at 2:53 am

But don’t forget while you are correct Jesus explains fasting in Matthew, Daniel was in the Old Testament, before Jesus came, could follow Torah in Jesus teachings. Daniel Fast, can be taken from Daniel 1, when he and his friends first taken to Babylon. Requested he, with Hananiah, Mishael, Azariah (Shadrac, Meshac, and Abednego) be given only fruits, vegetables, and water to compare them to the other Israelites. This is fast detailed in the Daniel fast, rather than his mourning in Daniel 10.

Not all passages say fast only with water. It really does not matter that much my friend. Fasting is afflicting oneself and that’s the main thing, to humble one self.

RL November 5, 2016 at 11:18 am

I believe the most common fast in Bible is three day fast. For example people of Nineve, Queen Esther, Paul, and Jonah fasted three days. Three successive Sabbaths of the crucifixion; Passover (14th), the normal Sabbath (15th), and Feast of First Fruits (16th), symbolically stand for three day’s fast, I believe, followed b five days of rebuilding the body with veggies and roasted meat, such as, chicken and fish (feast of unleavened bread).

Tara January 9, 2019 at 8:12 pm

Keep in mind not everyone should fast food. Some people who suffer with eating disorders should probably not fast food. Consult with a doctor, and pastor first before to make sure you are doing it for the right reasons. I have had this issue. When I have tried fasting food, it always ended up for the wrong reason, underneath it all. No pun intended but food for thought. I thought I would be fine, but quickly discovered I can not fast food.

GOD’SPOWER Makes you rich

1548015741140-487479608.jpgREMEMBER God gives you talents, skills abilities for HIS GLORY in HIS Covenant in Deuteronomy 8:18. Remember God is the SOURCE OF ALL WEALTH. The Bible in Matthew 6:25-34 says God PROVIDES for birds and flowers in nature so don’t worry about what to eat, what to wear or the place to live. The Right Way to be rich is Seek God’s Face for HIS FAVOUR, TRUST GOD’S WISDOM to help create genuine wealth and quality goods to be rich to gain wealth as a bonus. Use God-given talents and be humble do not rely only on your personal qualities as your source of wealth. To the rich Jesus says do not put trust in your riches because your life is worth much much more than material riches says James 5:1. 1548016826899-487479608.jpgChrist’s views on wealth is to recognise God the Giver of wealth and follow HIS Rules on how to make wealth. As Jesus says, do not be so greedy to keep all the wealth HE GIVES you to store up things for yourselves and not be RICH towards GOD says Luke 12.21. Do not be selfish as like the man who stored wealth and refused to pay workers but plans to put up bigger barns while his staff starved. God was so angry HE caused his demise for greed forgetting resources belong to God any human beings. Jesus said you brought nothing into this world and will not take anything out. God wants you to be rich to enrich others employing them and paying them proper wages, salaries to live comfortably as you do. Do not be the selfish corporate scrooge zero hour employer using evil abuse of workers not given jobs because you rely on floating stocks and shares to get rich to accumulate wealth. It means a product facade employs machines not humans who need income for food, bills. Wealth capital creation tool for committed for a Christian is use it to serve God and help neighbours. Psalm1:1 says Christians do not live by secular advise to get rich but work hard as you deserve your reward as faithful workers of God. God says be faithful to Jesus with your whole heart as Jesus told the rich young man to sell all his possessions to give to the poor. It seems cruel but the priceless value of the Gospel is so precious a wise person sells treasure to sponsor Gospel.1548018045596-487479608.jpgChristianity since 1700years ago thrived through Constantine to impact all living in his time and beyond. The Church has gained and Christianity expanded from Jerusalem to the whole world. Meekness required by God even if richest person, respect and honour others. Those who take wealth by force using violence face the wrath of God. Those who use ritual murders thinking they will get rich are murderers taking lives of God’s Creation to be thrown in hell fire. It is witchcraft because the devil only comes to steal, to kill and to destroy. They ensnare their souls to satan to get rich for a short time so required to repeat ritual to get more. Pornography, sex trafficking gang abuse of girls, women, childre and men hurts God so angry about such exploitation so WILL deal with perpetrators. Jesus said store your wealth or treasure in heaven safely from decay and rust in genuine business. Don’t get greedy to give your wealth to online scam ponsi pyramid schemes. 94 billion dollars was lost by people in such scams that fall apart like a pack of cards. The money collected is used on lavish lifestyle and not invested so people are conned into thinking their money is increasing in value. They take money from new customers given to old customers until cashflow stops so they are exposed. People want an unrealistic profit margin exaggerated and hyped to deceive them to part with their money. But the small prints statements exempts them from liability signed by customer. Lose money, life savings, wealth, assets and propery to quick money scammers. Some people do not understand vague words used to deceive them sounds real without proper knowledge. Pressure of scammers compels them to give money to them with time limited deadlines that seem they will miss out on opportunity.1548016487154-487479608.jpgWork hard at work faithfully to produce your optimum best like you are working for God WHO sees and rewards you. If a place of work undermines you take it to the LORD in prayer. Don’t let the people wind you up to react to get fired to get rid of you and blackmail you. The may not understand you are God’s Child so treat you anyhow. God sees your pain and will repay them eventually and so bring perfect peace and harmony on the earth. Wealth used to bully, to abuse, to exploit and cull nations is the evidence God records to punish them. It is only Jesus appointed by God to deal with the nation’s to take over to Reign as KING of Kings. Do not make yourself too greedy over others by harassing other people or using vandalism to ransack their resources. Maslow’s laws of hierarchy of the needs in life is satisfaction in health wellbeing, eating well, housing, family, friends, hard work are the most important of things in life. Beyond these its envy, jealousy, greed and selfishness to show off to brag to boast to impress others is vanity of vanities. Jesus warns against deceitfulness of riches which is the reason many gain the whole world but lose their soul to satan. There is a way that seems right to man but the end is death and destruction. Greedy people seduce others and kill innocent people whose blood they sacrifice to the devil. It is God’s WILL you prosper and be in good health even as your soul prospers. LOVE of money is root of all evil due to red evil eye of jealousy of others envied without knowing source of their wealth.1548016194002-487479608.jpgKing Solomon was the richest king who ever lived receiving tons of golds from vassal states King David conquered plus taxes. Solomon worshipped God and so many timed sacrificed thousands of his sheep to please God. Solomon’s actions impressed God WHO visited him in his dream and told Solomon to ask God for anything he liked. Solomon asked for wisdom so God said, because he did not ask for enemies to be killed or money to get richquick GOD gave Solomon money and wisdom and great PEACE he never fought any wars. God’s Blessing makes people rich without worrying about the people exploited taking vengeance. It is the necessary reason to Remember God to thank and to show gratitude to Jesus. 1548654285744-887859176.jpgThe Gospel costs billions of dollars for the production costs on TV, online, and publish books, leaflets, sponsor pastors to preach and do evangelism. Without faithful partners or sponsors the Gospel cannot reach the uttermost parts of the world. Great commission requires each believer to share the Gospel message to all people of all nations for salvation. A rich person has a role to play to sponsor GOSPEL MESSAGE and support all those on the frontlines of Evangelism. People are created to worship God not themself or other people. GOD comes FIRST in all decisions because HE IS THE PATENT OWNER OF RESOURCES ON EARTH. The trend of usurping wealth for privileged few ends as Jesus returns in Rapture to take away God’s Children into heaven. It is important to FOCUS ON GOD MORE and be alert as signs and wonders of the end times are birthpangs of warnings to all mankind. Do remember to give and share and do not throw away perfectly good foods, items buried in the ground while billions starve globally. Your bank balance, wealth, status, class, material possessions are useless in heaven. Jesus said a person’s life does not constitute of their material things.  Enjoy your life on earth but remember God gives all riches and  wealth earned. To eat and to enjoy wealth is favour of God so thank God for His Blessing.   1548017051102590994339-1.jpgJesus said a person’s life is not only just composed of what constitutes riches or their material things. Enjoy your life on earth but Remember God gives riches and wealth earned. To eat and to enjoy wealth is a favour of God so thank God for His Blessing. While you comfortably eat well, sleep in luxury and demolish to build bigger barns remember those whose resources, sweats, bloods toiled to enrich you to treat them right. Your Eternal life depends on it on judgement day whether you believe in God or not it makes no difference to God’s POWER and HIS PLANS unfolding on earth. The last 21 centuries show various blood moons, storms, tsunamis, volcanoes, earthquakes, plagues, wild fires, locusts, blood rivers, hailstorms or floods in the deserts as God warned. Repent and be ready to serve whether young or old so God WILL deliver your soul in Jesus Name. Remember your old gadgets and material things you feel embarrassed now to see in photos but at one time was so precious to you? So is old earth TRANSFORMED by God into New Heaven and New Earth. God WILL come to dwell on perfect earth among people in Jerusalem CITY OF GOD. Use your riches wisely not for debauchery and thank God for supplying all your needs according to HIS RICHES IN GLORY IN HEAVEN THROUGH JESUS CHRIST. GLORY TO GOD.

GOD STOPS COMPLAINERS

1547815854516-221904595.jpgNumbers 11 in Bible talks of people complaining unreasonably about their self-inflicted hardships but blame the LORD. The LORD’S anger was stirred by their constant complaining, murmuring, hatred, moaning or ingratitude. Complainers were those on outskirts of camp not solving problems but causing trouble in harsh wilderness  environment. The LORD was angry due to their myopic vision of not seeing into the future all God has already prepared in store for them. They were ungrateful, unthankful, faultfinding forgot all about their miraculous rescue so nothing God did for them was ever good enough. So some even accused God of deliberately taking them out of Egypt to cull them in the desert. God had enough of their tantrums so sent fire to burn them and consumed some outskirts of the camp. The people cried out to Moses and he prayed to the LORD so fire died down. 3 That place called Taberah because fire from the LORD burned among them. Yet one would think they learnt a lesson not to mock or taunt God. However, they all forgot about the Mercy of God and went on to complain worse than even before. This time, they wanted to eat meat after eating vegetarian diet compared to past luxury of slavery food cooked for their masters. They prefer to be in slavery to eat sumptuous foods than be free and to own their land and grow own crops. Yet willing to toil for slave masters but not do same hardwork for themselves. And this infuriated the LORD even more for they forget HE IS THE PATENT OWNER OF THE EARTH AND EVERYTHING IN IT definitely crossed rudeness line. Their timing of demand for meat made God angry not eating meat. Their animals on the journey was stock for settlement on Canaan so if they ate all would be worse of after regular Sabbath meat-eating. To complain so soon was appalling to God, but 4 They began to crave other foods so again the Israelites started crying and said, “If only we had meat to eat! 5 We remember the fish we ate in Egypt at no cost, cucumbers, melons, leeks, onions and garlic. 6 But now we have lost our appetite we never see anything but this manna!” 7 The manna like coriander seed looks like resin. The people went around gathering it grind it in hand-mill or crushed it in mortar. Cooked it in pot or made it into loaves. And it tasted like something made with olive oil. 9 When the dew settled on the camp at night the manna came down from God free to eat. 1547815629910-487479608.jpg10 Moses heard people in every family crying at the entrance of their tents. The LORD became exceedingly angry. Moses troubled, 11 asked the LORD, ‘Why have you brought trouble on your servant? What did I do to displease YOU that YOU put the burden of all these people on me? 12 Did I conceive these people? Did I give birth to them? Why did you tell me to carry them in my arms as a nurse carries infants to the land you promised on oath to their ancestors? 13 Where can I get meat for all these people? They keep crying to me, ‘Give us meat to eat!’ 14 I cannot carry these people by myself the burden is too heavy for me 15 If this is how you are going to treat me, please go ahead and kill me if I find favour in your Eyes, do not let me face my ruin.” 16 The LORD said to Moses: “Bring me seventy of Israel’s elders known to you as leaders and officials of the people. Have them come to the tent of meeting, that they may stand there with you. 17 I WILL come and speak with you there, and I will take some of the power of the Spirit in you and put it on them. They will share the burden of the people with you so that you will not have to carry it alone. 18 “Tell the people: ‘Consecrate yourselves to prepare for tomorrow so you will eat meat. The LORD heard you when you cried, “If only we had meat to eat! We were better off in Egypt!” Now the LORD will give you meat, and you will eat it. 19 You will not eat it for just one day, two days, five, ten, twenty days 20 but a whole month until it comes out of your nostrils so you hate it because you rejected the LORD among you, and cried before HIM, saying, “Why did we ever leave Egypt?” 21 Moses said, “Here I am among six hundred thousand men on foot and you say, ‘I WILL give them meat to eat a whole month!’ 22 Would they have enough if all flocks and herds were slaughtered for them? Would they have enough if all fish in sea caught for them?” 23 The LORD answered Moses, “Is the LORD’s arm too short? Now you will see whether or not what I say will come true.” 24 Moses went and told the people what the LORD said. He brought seventy elders to stand around the tent. Appointed elders help ease the burdens of Moses alone singlehandedly leading the people as Jethro advised him to do. Great wisdom to delegate as leaders to avoid being all things to all people only God does so through Jesus Christ Name. Stop complaining, moaning, groaning lament for negative centre of attention.1547815782422590994339.jpg1547815930281268447033.jpg25 The LORD came down in the cloud and spoke with him, and he took some of the power of the Spirit on Moses and put it on the seventy elders. When the Spirit rested on them, they prophesied but did not do so again. 26 But two men, whose names were Eldad and Medad, remained in the camp. They were listed among the elders, but did not go out to the tent. Yet the Spirit rested on them, and they prophesied in the camp. 27 A young man ran and told Moses, “Eldad and Medad are prophesying in camp.” 28 Joshua son of Nun, Moses’ aide spoke and said, “Moses, my lord, stop them!” 29 But Moses replied, “Are you jealous for my sake? The LORD’s WILL is all people be prophets and have the LORD’S SPIRIT in them!”  30 Moses and elders of Israel returned to the camp. 31 Now a wind went from the LORD and drove quail from the sea. It scattered them up to two cubits deep all around the camp, as far as a day’s walk in any direction. 32 All day and night and next day the people went and gathered quail. No one gathered less than ten homers, spread them all around the camp. 33 But while the meat was still between their teeth before it could be consumed, the anger of the LORD burned against the people, and HE struck them with severe plague. 34 So place named Kibroth Hattaavah, because there they buried people who had craved other food. 35 From Kibroth Hattaavah, people traveled to Hazeroth and stayed there. The plague is among a number of natural disasters leading to widespread famines, tornadoes, volcanoes, tsunamis and earthquakes coupled with blood moons Endtime signs and wonders warnings from God. Israelites complain about God, ignore instructions but blame God for natural disasters and man-made consequences. Moses felt so overwhelmed by complaints he even doubted God’s POWER to do miracles. Moses’ influence was lost because he doubted God’s ability to provide as Jehovah Jireh. God FORGIVE US ALL IN JESUS NAME for all tendency not to remember to count our Blessings in times of adversity. Do not let burdens of ministry, business or family overwhelm you to doubt God in Jesus Name. Never let problems overshadow GOODNESS OF GOD, it causes God’s anger to spring up to destroy people. No matter the challenges of life it too shall come pass in Jesus Name. Hold onto faith and have Confidence in God to deliver you in Jesus Name. Whatever happens Bless the LORD at all times and let HIS Praises be heard in your mouth. GOD is GOOD ALL THE TIME AND ALL THE TIME GOD IS GOOD even if you don’t feel or think so. Thank God for Jesus Christ salvation to you freely given to save you eternally.

MEN AND CONTROL ISSUES

15477391773671824446760.jpgThe American Psychological Association (APA) new clinical guidelines advise the masculinity by dominance, aggression, highly manipulative, cunning individual emotional repression can be harmful to men’s mental health for strong or silent types. Delusion of “real men”according to men’s rights movement as tough and commanding easily falls apart? Why is the slightest challenge to the norms they proclaim by ad or academic body they never encounter trigger tantrums and frenzied testeria? Male identities seem confused about who the real men are by inadequacy of terms used. Their notion is: men should be distant, domineering, self-seeking is toxic masculinity, serves only to alienate those who need help most. Male behaviour’s ideal traditional masculine concept of maleness changed radically from century to century. In the furious response to advertisement and new guidelines, the psychologist Jordan Peterson says similar macho ideologues are fearful masculinity. If at ease with yourself, you don’t feel the need to call other men cucks. If you are strong, you don’t feel threatened by strong women. In a fascinating article last year, Pankaj Mishra argued that perceived crises of masculinity accompany anxiety about economic or national decline. Just as US humiliation in Vietnam stimulated an appetite for “such cartoon visions of masculinity as Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger” 9/11 helped to spread morbid fears of emasculation of western powers and need to assert new ideal of manliness. Perceived loss of both political and gender dominance provoked some men to respond with homophobia and misogyny in a crude attempt to restore male authority.15477393922421489886895.jpgAPA reveals fearful masculinity inflicts tremendous harm on men and women. The men who most exercise manliness, a 2011 study suggests, are half as likely to seek preventive healthcare as less anxious about male identity. They are alless willing to request psychotherapy. The APA links these attitudes to the far higher rates of suicide among men than among women. Ego and pride prevent such men from seeking help so implode and put vitriol toxic hatred on innocent people. Research says prostrate cancer and loneliness discovered to an extent to which manly reserve kills. Fears they cannot bring themselves to name soon grow into terrible secrets. As they grow, they become still harder to share and to assimilate and endure. Men unwilling to discuss issues that threaten their virility and their lives lagged behind treatment money allocated for other malignancies. Effective treatment requires breaking of taboos. Issues of beating loneliness with Ewan McLennan, discovered thousands of people seem to wait for permission to relax their stiff upper lips normalising frightening conditions. Connecting with others suffering in silence helps bring collective strength cannot find alone. Those who urge men to shut down, man up, grow up push them towards disaster and despair. Many he-men responding to new guidelines says David French in writing in the National Review, “grown man” requires discipline, risk-taking growing up whether man or woman means abandoning anger, aggression and need to dominate. Learning to talk about fear, loss, joy and love. It means learning both to listen and to share, to name your troubles and engage with other people’s. You need to be strong to admit your weaknesses. In admitting them, you build your strength.1547739342693400299481.jpg Age-old mistake has stunted countless lives with assumption physical hardship in childhood makes one physically tough emotional hardship must make you emotionally tough. It does opposite. It implants a vulnerability that requires a lifetime of love and therapy to repair and untreated, leads to escalating series of destructive behaviours. Emotionally damaged men rip apart their own lives, and those of partners and children. Sees physical fitness and emotional strength as virtues acquired by different means. Those who deny their own feelings tend to deny other people’s. Some men find it easier to order a drone strike, separate children from families, build wall than to admit or address own vulnerabilities. Somerville discussed in the Guardian, a powerful association between perceived masculinity and lack of concern for the living world: real men don’t recycle. A study in Journal of Consumer Research suggest meat-eating strongly associated with conceptions of maleness, inhibit a switch toward plant-based diet essential to avoid environmental breakdown. The sort of man going to such length proves masculinity is weak. The construction of their identity is a crude cultural marker of emotional literacy without an honest self-appraisal. They claim strength and dominance of the weak proves they are strong. Gillet’s advertisement for men to challenge abusive behaviour to change narcissistic patterns of behaviour can’t cause thousands to furiously proclaim they will never use its products again. It is their warped views based on fear that messes their heads and messes society.1547739277682-1243455999.jpgMen must be taught about relationship to understand it’s not culdesac oneway all about them at the centre of attention always. Their self-esteem and ego based on other people’s pain and suffering to feel good is demonic witchcraft. So lack confidence, consideration, consent and sensitivity of needs family, loved ones, colleagues, friends or acquaintances. It is their way or no way so always right, abusive, ignorant about basic common sense boundaries, respect and valuing others. Permantly angry and frustrated although seems to have everything, yet projects fears on to others. Living in a virtual bubble fantasy world in their heads never see beyond their nose. The world is dealing with centuries of their damage to society without any remorse or taking responsibility for destroying others. Express what you want or don’t want as women if you say yes let your yes be YES, if no let your no be NO and do not send mixed messages of no then let man into your room. It means you are groomed to please others leave the premises to another place at a friend’s or family. Be strong and empowered to say, ‘No, change your phone number, Facebook, car, job, gym if stalker alert law to put injunction. Above all protect your life 24/7 get security because they continue damage until its GOD, PATENT OWNER of the world WHO wrenches controlling spirits from them by force as not ready to change. Do not allow them to control or humiliate you because you are precious and priceless to GOD WHO created you. Their opinion does not count in GOD’S Book of life on the day of judgement they either repent and are saved or wither and perish in Jesus Name. No man can fill the void of GOD in your heart so make room for GOD in Jesus Name. Feed your spirit and soul on the WORD of GOD for inner healing inner your inner peace of mind.

YOUR RESPONSE TO RACISM

Anti-racism demo in London, 2017. Photograph: Peter Cary/PA

Poppu recently read in a paper some of the racial bias people in Britain experience, found it quite shocking. It is something she heard a lot about, but not experienced herself. She did not know ethnic minorities still find themselves being removed from bars or restaurants for no reason. It made her start to wonder how to respond if she sees such a behaviour in public. Is it possible to safely intervene or how can you support people if witnessed a person experiencing racism. She will want to help but would not want to appear like a white knight coming to the rescue because she thought they could not speak for themselves. What if they want to ignore it, so as not to draw attention to themselves or give the aggressor reaction they wanted? At the same time she does not want to be a bystander who tacitly validates unacceptable behaviour by not saying anything at all. You are right to start by putting yourself in someone else’s shoes sometimes good intention is not enough particularly if walking on an uncharted ground. The answer depends on your relationship to the person in question. Have you thought about asking people, friends, colleagues, acquaintances about their experiences of these issues? It may feel nerve-racking but trust yourself the articles you read can be a starting point for conversation. Be careful, gauge how far you should go with it. Be clear about your own lack of knowledge it is fine to say to someone, “I don’t really know how to ask this question” or “I can’t tell if this is offensive or the sort of thing you necessarily want to talk to me about I know it’s not your job to educate me.”Of course you might get it wrong in fact, it’s likely you will as no two people are the same. Racism is a sensitive subject so some people might not feel at ease talking to you about it. They may fear that you will become defensive as has been written about by many writers of colour you might deny their experience of racism, or fail to understand it. But you might be able to ask how they would like people to react when these things happen to them. As long as you are open-minded, willing to accept any criticism and be clear about your own lack of knowledge, you have the chance of building a better understanding of someone else’s life and becoming better equipped to support them. You may be in a situation where you witness racism towards someone you do not know. A person may appear to want to ignore it, but could it be they feel others do not care. Or out of embarrassment, shame feel they are a burden in that situation you should gauge whether it is safe to intervene or you need to call the police. There are guides that suggest a helpful behaviour in these situations, focusing on diverting attention from situation sitting next to someone and talking to them about a random, unrelated topic. Rather than “standing up for them” or confronting the aggressor. In reality, you will do what you feel comfortable with and are able to. That may mean making eye contact, or mouthing to see whether they are OK. In times of crisis and upset, it is always OK to ask.

GOD’S ANGELS DESTROY Evil

God’s GREAT campaign so memorably miraculously reveal Yahweh rescued Kingdom of Judah from inevitable ruin. Dealt fatal blow to Assyrian empire to show bearing of HIS INTEREST in City of Jerusalem and Judah His Headquarters Address on earth encountered HIM and lost his army he hastily fled, as Josephus back to country. Sennacherib thought to try to intimidate Hezekiah and people to surrender cities by his insolent ways but had no fear for the result confident God will see them through as Hezekiah manifests on receiving the report of the message and the letter afterwards. They know LORD GOD of Israel is STRONG ENOUGH to keep HIS Covenant, defends the nation against all enemies. Hezekiah sees sufficiency in God to meet terrible threats by the PRESENCE and POWER of God’s representative irresistible force. 1547408687206400299481.jpgA Higher TRUTH sustains those in time of helplessness as ABSOLUTE GOD, The LORD of Israel, WHO “Dwells between cherubims, HIMSELF the ONLY God of all kingdoms of the earth defends weak. The heart of Hezekiah himself, humbly communicated through royal example, together with assurances of Isaiah and the court plus inhabitants of Jerusalem, enabled them to stand still in faith and patience. Israelites pursued by Pharaoh and host at Red Sea saw God’s salvation. Prophecies and events of a memorable night occasion of catastrophe indicates present world is facing similar changes in Chronicles 32:20-23. Predictions in 2 Kings 19:7; 2 Kings 19:21-34, rebellious nations fight God and Jesus so the LORD destroy by angels to like smite firstborn of Egyptians in Exodus 12:12-13; Exodus 12:23, David’s census in 2 Samuel 24:15-17 take place. Passages show Assyrian army devastated by God’s Supernatural cause immense number slain, Psalms 91:6, preserves weak. Events predicted by Isaiah continue as crisis in history of some religions fight against Jerusalem. The 2 Kings 19:32-33 plagues unleashed at scene of catastrophe in detail in Bible characterise Acts of God. Nations still at wars throughout empire permanently by imperial policy cause revolts end his reign as Sennacherib never anticipated. As renewed attacks goes on in the world few realise LORD God didn’t spare HIS enemies in Exodus 12:33 so dead men. The LORD God is showing HIS SIGNS and wonders in the skies sending, angel of the LORD into camps of HIS enemies. day and night to warn of similar Biblical apocalypse globally. Elijah and Moses will return to Jerusalem to preach after Rapture to give last chance to mankind to repent before WRATH of God and the Wrath of Jesus takes place. Earthquakes locusts, predicted volcanoes, plagues, tornadoes, wildfires, tsunamis, floods, droughts famines, perilous times seen happening everywhere. GOD will take back earth to restore to original perfect Garden of Eden with abundance no lack in all parts of the whole world. PERFECT PEACE will happen and no more wars in whole world for a Millennium under Jesus Christ. Beware those mocking and taunting God’s believers about faith in Jehovah’s POWER OF AUTHORITY over mankind. GOD LOVES all people so let His Son be your Saviour in Jesus Name. Rapture is coming soon in clouds when Jesus rescues believer’s alive to heaven to escape coming GREAT TRIBULATION. Make sure you ask Jesus to forgive all your sins and include you in Rapture so pray for friends, family, loved ones and even enemies to be saved and rescued in Jesus Name. Forgive enemies as Jesus said on the Cross and pray for them in Jesus Name. God’s angels fight for weak people to defend them from the proud people mocking and taunting God, God saves HIS Children like Hezekiah.

SUPER BLOOD WOLF MOON

15471973100461824446760.jpgAmazing Super Blood Blue Wolf Moon is coming between 20 and 21 January as prophesied in Bible in Joel, Revelations and Acts as part of the End time signs and wonders from God. Christians are aware of prediction of this January’s Supermoon eclipse known as the Blood Moon as a biblical sign of approaching end times. Super Blood Moon 2019 is a Lunar eclipse occurs as part of a series of events preceding Jesus Coming in the clouds and His Second Coming later to earth. Super Blood Moon 2019 is the one taking place in January as total eclipse. It is called a Super Blood Moon because the moon occurs twice in a same month and eclipse happens. This Blood Moon means total lunar eclipse happens when the earth moves between Sun and moon so blocks light. The earth casts a shadow on the moon blocking out Sunlight. As a light passes through earth’s atmosphere during an eclipse, red light from the Sun is reflected onto it moon so makes moon appear red. This is why its called Blood Moon. The lunar eclipse taking place in January will be bigger so brighter than normal because it closer to earth so the moon phenomenon called a supermoon. This is why it is called a SUPER BLOOD Moon. It is the last total lunar eclipse to take place until May 2021, so try to see it if you can! This SUPER blood moon will be seen by people in parts of western Europe and Africa. And those living in North and South America will be able to see this eclipse too. Those further east will only see a partial eclipse or won’t see this event at all. The weather is also a factor that can affect seeing the moon if it is too cloudy to block the view. The full moon is sometimes known as a wolf moon since it appears in January, when wolves used to howl in hunger outside villages, it earned the name wolf moon, according to The Farmers Almanac. Its also called great spirit moon and super blood moon seen next two years but it lasts for more than an hour. Unusual as the moon, earth and sun align every ten years this happens next in 2029. But lull in total lunar eclipses over next couple of years will be seen” said Tom Kerss an astronomer from the Royal Observatory Greenwich. This is a really good one to see as it’s going to be a long time before another one like this spectacular until May 2021. The total lunar eclipse visible from UK and North and South America, Greenland, Iceland, Ireland, Norway, Sweden, Portugal, French and Spanish coasts. The rest of Europe and Africa will have partial viewing before moon sets. Asia, Australia and New Zealand miss out. The eclipse begins at 2.36am in UK on Monday 21, maximum eclipse around 5.12am, when moon completely submerged within Earth’s shadow, red about 4.40am to 6.45am so more than an hour to observe blood moon totally eclipsed,” Kerss said. Royal Museums Greenwich hosts Facebook Live from 4am so viewers can watch it unfold. Its the first of three supermoons this year. This supermoon is about 357,300km far away. The 19 February supermoon will closer and in March is farthest. Science confirms these endtime celestial events predicted in Bible thousands of years ago. Holy Spirit of God empowers and emboldens believers in a very powerful way. Pray more and speak in tongues in intimacy with Christ to stay calm not to panic or be anxious for anything. Mark 16:17, says Jesus signs will accompany those who believe in Jesus Name to do miracles, heal the sick, cast out demons, raise the dead speak in new tongues.” A study by US neuroscientists, in 2006, supports idea the people who speak in tongues reflect mental calmness state. Brain images of five women speaking in tongues shows their frontal lobes of the thinking, wilful part of brain in control of activities quiet in language centres. A sign of blood moon are some birthpang warnings to alert beloved in Christ to look up and rejoice for their salvation is near even at the door in Jesus Name. As the Bible unfolds its good to learn more about prophecies and power of prayer to endure to the end in Christ during the Rapture. The blood moon is not the end of the world but landmark signposts in the sun, stars and moon God designed to guide people to take God seriously in Jesus Name to be saved not left behind.
