GOD DESTROYS gods & idols

15638006982148295271043831435818.jpgGod’s Ark triumphs over dagon, broken in pieces, after it was ceased in battle. A plan of the enemy to humiliate Israel in battle imploded dagon fell and broke in pieces. Jesus’ triumph over gods or idols means kingdom of satan defeated. The kingdom of Christ in God is living truth eternal Godliness. Be confident of day of triumph in Christ true Ark of Covenant in hearts of mankind to destroy satan’s temple. Idols fall in Psalm 115:5, they have mouths, but cannot speak, eyes but cannot cannot  see, ears, but cannot hear, noses but cannot smell says Isaiah 44:13. All who serve and worship it like them. Psalm 135:16 have mouth cannot speak, eyes cannot see, ears cannot hear no life in their mouths. Isaiah 6:10, They have mouths, cannot speak, eyes cannot see, Jeremiah 5:21,Ezekiel12:2, Matthew 13:15, Acts 28:27. Antiochus’ statue Zeus  in God’s temple Hellenic priest sacrifice pigs to Greek god religion angered Jews. Greek official ordered a Jewish priest to perform a Hellenic sacrifice, the priest Mattathias killed him. In 167 BCE, Jews joined Mattathias and five sons to fight to win freedom from Seleucid authority. Mattathias’ son Judah Maccabee, called “The Hammer”re-dedicated temple in 165 BCE and Jews celebrate event to this day major part of festival of Hanukkah.IMG-20190722-WA0003.jpgGod allows captivity if their hearts turn dull and ears heavy, shut their eyes lest they see with eyes or hear with ears to change and saved. Jesus quoted Isaiah’s prophecy, lest they see with their eyes, hear with their ears and saved. Isaiah 42-53 highlights people serve God with their ears open but did not listen. So he laments over God’s chosen people who copy heathen pagans who shape gods or cast idols with eyes plastered, sculpture wood they call gods. God allows people to have reprobate minds in Romans 1 to do as they like to serve the creature not Creator God. All sins forsaken by them is forgiven so righteous are restored by salvation. Jesus will claim His throne so and all will be dethroned and crucified.  The dagon spirit will not prevail against God’s Children but those who continue Jesus condemns to seek salvation or be entirely destroyed like in Samuel 5:6-12. God warns believers of serving another god in addition to Living God Jehovah so thou shall have no other gods apart from Adonai Elohim. God shows mighty power in defeating Egypt yet in absence of Moses Aaron permitted golden calves but God saved them. Tragedies results from rebellion of idolatry against God. IMG-20190722-WA0002.jpgGod becomes angry with them forsakes them…. Many disasters and calamities came on them, that day they will ask, ‘Have not these disasters come on us because our God is not with us? “I will hide my face that day because of wickedness in turning to other gods” says Deuteronomy 31:16-18. In 1 Kings 11 Solomon’s idolatry of love of foreign women: Pharaoh’s daughter, Hittite and Moab, Ammon, Edom, Sidon. Were from nations the LORD said to Israel “Never intermarry with them to tempt you to follow their gods.” Solomon obsessed by love had 700 and 300 concubines. In old age, wives tempt him to follow idol gods no longer committed to LORD God like father David. Solomon followed Astarte goddess of Sidonian, Milcom idol of the Ammonites. Solomon did evil as LORD  considered not wholeheartedly follows the LORD. Solomon built site on hill east of Jerusalem for Chemosh idol of Moab, Molech idol of Ammonites. These things for his foreign wives to burn incense to sacrificed to their gods. God Pronounces judgment on Solomon angry because his heart turned from the LORD God of Israel who appeared to him twice. God commands him not to follow other gods, but Solomon did not obey God. LORD  told Solomon, “I will tear kingdom from you to give to your sons. I will not do it in your lifetime because of your father David. I will tear it from hands of your son. I will not tear whole kingdom away from you. I will give your son a tribe for my servant David’s sake and the sake of JERUSALEM THE CITY I CHOSE.”15638808712343548709652712321450.jpg15638816264066145787514658232527.jpg15638815050961186563612446522861.jpgIMG-20190811-WA0008.jpgGod LOVES Solomon but hates idolatry  and punished him. Elijah killed Jezebel’s 400 baal prophets to help restore Godly worship in vain and 7000 true prophets of God could not change idolatory in Israel. Elect 144,000 Israel males sealed in Revelations has tribe of Dan excluded by idolatory. Revelation 7 missed from 144,000 the tribe of Dan. Twelve thousands from Jacob’s twelve sons and twelve tribes of Israel includes tribe of Levi’s inheritance in the LORD. Levites refused to worship golden calf so God made priests in his Tabernacle. Joseph’s tribe split into two, each son Manasseh and Ephraim received an inheritance. In the list of those sealed in Revelation, tribe of Levi is listed. Tribe of Dan excluded, suggest false prophet of Revelation may be from tribe of Dan. Others see Dan’s role in leading Israel into idolatry as a cause for being left out of the 144,000 in Judges 18:30–31. Tribes not blessed by inclusion in this seal, prophetic books indicate members of tribe of Dan will be saved and receive land in the millennial kingdom in Ezekiel 48:2. Mankind may lost track of members of tribes, God but God knows them all in Revelation 7:4–8.IMG-20190722-WA0000.jpg
In Judges 18:30, The children of Dan set up graven image in new city of Dan and built house for it, where Jeroboam later set up one of his golden calves. Danites succeeded in Micah’s house, venerated graven images brought with them and set up religious worship. Molten image, teraphim, ephod all placed together for devotion and consultation. Jonathan son of Gershom, son of Manasseh as priests to tribe of Dan resided in the city of Dan Jonathan the Levite Micah took into his house made priest. Danites took to Laish priest son of Gershom, son of Manasseh Gershom son of Moses’ grandson. Like Phinehas grandson of Aaron in Judges 20:28, grandson of Moses in honour of Moses. Forgot virtues of his grandfather, Moses the priests in Dan in captivity of the land for idolatry. Idolatrous priests, through time of Samuel, David, Solomon in captivity of Israel, time of Jabin king of Canaan. Gersom’s idolatry continued in house of God at Shiloh, ark captured by Philistines. House of Shiloh forsaken  says Psalms 78:58-61 as God permitted.IMG-20190722-WA0001.jpgIn Acts 19:24-41, Demetrius and fellow silversmiths in Ephesus lost demand for idol products, statuettes of the goddess Artemis. Loss is attributed to growing numbers of the Christians who do not worship gods made with human hands. Highlights Christian population growth frightens diminished revenue of crafts creating statues. People against faith of Christians due to loss of money for their silversmiths. So their greedy economic gain keeps people in bondage connected to idols to enrich such masters. Growth of Christianity’s success turned believer from adherence to false gods. The more observant Christians increased so fewer people bought statuettes of idol gods to engage in religious rituals. It threatened economic production of an organization that profited greatly from idol worship. This trend in metropolitan Ephesus sets precedence for booming business that parasited profit at expense of souls. 15638085661946643585036976509700.jpgThey feared if whole of Asia persuaded by Paul to draw away from gods made with hands their trade may end. Idols  in disrepute and temple gods scorned to deprived all Asia and world of worship. And enraged, they shouted and rushed together to the theatre, dragging Gaius and Aristarchus the Macedonian Paul’s travelling-companions. Paul was not let in crowd by disciples but sent a message urging him not to venture into theatre. The crowd instructed Alexander, the Jews pushed forward to make defence before people. A town clerk quietened crowd and said, citizens of Ephesus city statue fell from heaven…. They are not temple robber blasphemer of gods so in danger being charged rioting, dismissed assembly. Today convincing nations idol worshippers of their false gods not well received to be saved by Jesus eternally. Stirs up anger and false charges so they left. Baby Jesus in Egypt records testify that townsfolk infuriated when stone statue of an idol cracked and fell evicted the Holy Family from the town. In Egypt Tal-Basta – or Basta Jesus caused spring from ground and His Presence triggered idols to crumble. The townsfolk in anger turned aggressive, Holy Family turned their backs on town heads southwards to MostorodHistory record incident dating devastation of Qussqam. Coptic tradition says town ruin as consequence of violent rejection of the Holy Family of Jesus in their escape to Egypt.15648316192607707449909183363327.jpgThe Governor of Fustat enraged their idols  fell at Jesus’ approach sought to kill the Child. Took shelter in the cave Church of Abu Serga St. Sergius is built. Others welcome holy refugees received at Meir or Meira town seven miles west of Qoussia. Hospitality of town people is abundantly blessed. Revelations 6 says people who receive  Christ will be saved but all others who reject God’s Spirit filled Christian Gospel message will perish. Believers ordained to go into all the world to preach Gospel, Some seeds fall on good fertile ground multiply a hundred fold others fall on hard soil and perish. Jesus said He does not care about the world but prays for all those who love him to be preserved until He returns. Pray for all people for God to open spiritual eyes to see to hear the truth and be saved from kingdom of darkness into glolious kingdom of light of the Gospel. You can take the horse to the water but you cannot force them to drink. Share love of God and God saves them in Jesus Name. Pray for the whole family to be delivered from generations of idolatry convenants entered into by their ancestors and forefathers against God. Plead Blood of Jesus like Gideon, Hezekiah, Manasseh build NEW ALTAR to living God. Let deliverance ministers deal with idol gods don’t do so yourself. Put on whole armour of God and cover yourself with Jesus blood and worship the Only One True God.IMG-20190723-WA0000.jpgGod instructs HIS people to drive out all the inhabitants of Land of Israel as they settle down. HE warned them: “If you do not drive out inhabitants of land from you, those you let remain shall be irritants in your eyes and thorns in your sides to harass you in land you dwell in” in Numbers 33:55. The Israelites crossed Jordan made treaties allows Canaanites to dwell among them. They continued practicing their pagan rituals, led them into pagan practices and their attacks. God cares for strangers or refugees with love and friendliness. The alien residing in land not to be oppressed but treated as citizens as you love yourself, for you were strangers in the land of Egypt,” in  Leviticus 19:33-34;20:24-26. Acts 17:26-27 says God let all nations inhabit whole earth allotted by boundary places to live as Leviticus states God separated people of Israel from others ordered them not to mix to train them ROLE MODELS to all nations. The Christian Church in the world does not belong to world so is set apart for God’s Christian community for Children of God’s Kingdom. The Church community in the world interacts with fellow human beings outside Church. Agape love open hearts and gentleness kindness in Bible account helps people on the move, strangers, immigrants and refugees without a home in 1 Peter 2:9,  John 17:16, Philippians 4:5. God justifies Israel training them ROLE MODELS not by racism or culture, gender for there is no Jew, Gentiles, slaves nor free in God’s Kingdom. ALL WHO DO WILL OF GOD SO OBEY HIS COMMANDS HE LOVES IN HIS ETERNAL PRESENCE. Those who reject God’s Grand plans for mankind HE ELIMINATES by WRATH.

So the rituals of ancestors guarantee families to the devil to experience difficulties in business, career, no promotion progress in life.

Some have series of marital problems and marine spouse and children under the sea or in river. 1541684911923-566392789.jpgGod rescues people in a flood drowning in their dreams by angels sent to save and deliver people’s glory caged to limit good success through dreams.

HOLYGHOST POWERCHURCH

Almighty God Jehovah Nissi’s MIGHTY POWER strikes fear in the enemies that tremble at HIS fearful WONDERS when they hear about victory won for God’s Children. Daniel was protected by God’s POWER from the lion’s and from a fire heated seven times that killed soldiers stoking the fire but did not singe Daniel is among miracles. The Ark of covenant kept in an idol temple caused dagon to fall and break to pieces. The Holy Ghost POWER works through Jesus, disciples, and Churches empowered who believe to save people, heal the sick and deliver people from demons by casting out evil spirits in Name of Jesus. God’s MIGHTY POWER is used to build lives to restore people from bondage, afflictions or evil covenants. GOD’S MIGHTY POWER also is known to destroy Koresh and insolent rebellious friends talking against Moses by opening ground to swallow them all with their families. Though some cried to God and were spared. Elisha has used God’s POWER to kill children mocking his bald head eaten by bears he called to devour them. Paul and Peter manifest POWER of God in ministry to the extent Simon the sorcerer thought he can buy God’s POWER to show off to people vain glory. God’s POWER is desired by some people facing accusations of witchcraft mixed with belief and faith practices of God by some disciples. Authentic faith in God in Christ is confused with those using witchcraft activities to activate so-called miracles. Its important, necessary to successfully deal with accusations to set people free. God’s POWER is not for sale in witchcraft coven to compromise worship and service to God if mammon is the source of dangerous power. Bible warns of the angels of light performing the counterfeit miracles and wonders, calling fire from heaven but Jesus said beware of them. They will plead with Jesus, we did it in your name, but Jesus rejects them and says depart from me you doers of evil. And Elijah told God’s people not to hop in- between God and idols. So if God truly, exclusively, LORD choose God alone not both at the same time. Church’s hold onto selfprotection against evil attacks from witches and wizards causes their accusers to brag of control of such churches. So challenge and accuse them openly to respond or to deny sources of power. The church of satan declares their source of power is from satan seen by all know what they stand for. Spiritualist Church externally has Christian logos, decorations, Cross, pictures of Jesus, a holy water, worship God, mix ‘transfiguration’ with invoking spirits in air to give psychic messages to members of congregation from the dead relatives. This types of practice admits new age applications as part of religious experience but do not think that makes them evil as they help people to ‘know’ future predictions. Some accuse other Christian Churches supposed to live by Godly principles alone practising a false religion founded on deception. Spiritual circumstantial proof misunderstood or imagined evidence in some cases. The witnesses cannot easily share secrets or dismissed. Regular rituals imposed on pastor ensure incantation power works or sexual immorality is chosen method using members for sacrifices, death tax category is hidden from view but inner circle denies ‘satan’ accuser of brethren targeting the righteous people of God. In response to an accusation message, first the Church must discern the nature of accusation, source, purpose or evidence provided. Witchcraft practices if alive in Church Christian faith mixes traditional rituals of the community. Some pastors, reverends have a shrine at home, uses fetish in the home, travels with it in clothes or ties it around arms, waists and legs. The pastors often make statement revealing belief, involvement with witchcraft. Parishioners see use of fetish hidden in seclude corner of office by doors, wall, concealed underground in close proximity to important building pastors after visit to witchdoctor shrine for consultation. Or send ‘go-betweens’ to seek counsel on their behalf. The shy ones use a ministry assistant, spouse, friends or parishioners. Some pastors threaten enemies with evil witchcraft retaliation. The deeply involved pastors consult local, regional spirits. Prosperity gospel proclaiming independent church pastors travel for consultations. Clergy reports includes presents of animal and human sacrifices. Some pastors go out at night to carry out secret assignments as part of condition required to gain the power to be rich and famous to attract people to follow them. So the question is why is there need for a pastor ordained by the Living God to seek power from a source contrary to the Spirit of God. The people of God saw miracles but asked Aaron to make a golden calf to worship. As Moses went up the mountain, people of God in the valley already forgot God’s Goodness in crossing the red sea. Some doubt God’s LOVE in Christ in miracles falsely alluded to power of Beelzebub.

If Attention is FOCUSED more on God’s POWER FIRST so focus on human needs supplied by God’s Will demand increase LOVE of God not witchcraft magic. And a few mindbending spells craved to do fake miracles is not God approved so irrelevant. Towering evidence of idols, witches’ charms, lotions and the potions administered by humans is considered more powerful than praying to invisible unseen God. Looks like being not heard by God quickly leads people to seek an alternative instant results. So something felt or touched as their point of contact reassures them but is not fullproof good success. The result lasts for a while until more top up of ritual repeated reinforce power to repeat a cycle for generations. As pressure mounts on society for more materialist competitive fewer resources selfishness leads greedy in clique lodges affiliations, brotherhoods, illuminati all have solidarity code to control domains to rule and subdue others. In the same way, divide and ruled societies require a loyalty to secret cult members for the privileges of resources, class and status. Attention on members to recruit more to maintain flow of funds and resources abide by secret codes for promotion. So the new members take some time to be included in the highest level if reliable to the seniors. By the time they are now fully fledged members and sucked into an initiation ritual it’s too late to leave. A daredevil leader threatens them with death or retaliation if they leave. Fear is instilled in members who invest time or money for years fooled by a discovery of evil. This urge to control all people at all times so witchcraft terms conditions of rituals include sleeping  Often a guise of spirit of unity of ‘one accord’ like the day of Pentecost is used to blackmail the ones refusing to conform. Any person challenging authority of spiritual abuse labeled Jezebel or Jonah so spewed out. Does this mean all churches depend on power of witches or wizard as if God’s Authority, Power no longer available to believers? Not really, because God told Moses Levites did not bow to golden calf just as the 7000 faithful people refused to bow in Elijah’s day to Jezebel’s idols. Righteous men and women devoted to God faithfully serve God in Spirit and in Truth. Congratulations to all the faithful believers appreciated, standing strong in the midst of adversity. Few badapples mislead naive people who do not know deeper things behind scenes. Endtime is approaching for rapture so important to know where one stands with God. Bible says even the very elect can be deceived if not careful and alert. All must watch and pray to be sure their salvation is in Christ Jesus in God. In Acts 8:9-25 Simon the Sorcerer for some time followed and observed God’s POWER at work desired power to buy without an understanding of direct connection to God in Christ. It is a similar mindset today that things of faith in God like a pick and mix sweet shop. A little bit of this and a little bit of that faith trend is popular for thinking all roads leads to heaven. ABSOLUTE POWER OF Authority from God vested in Christ alone approved by God is the authentic power at work through Jesus Christ. Simon the Sorcerer recognised a true POWER different from the sorcery familiar spirit he used. The man named Simon had practiced sorcery in the city amazed people with counterfeit magical powers. Until he crossed paths with the servants of God and now wanted God’s POWER for working miracles. Instead of repenting, casting away evil spirits and asking forgiveness from God he wanted to combine both to deceive people. And in Acts 8:18 when Simon saw the Spirit was given through laying on of hands he wanted to buy that power. But God’s POWER is not for sale, never will be for freely given and freely received to the GLORY of GOD ALMIGHTY. Simon saw the Spirit was imparted when apostles laid their hands on people, so offered them money to buy God’s POWER. How much can anyone pay for God POWER? How much do you have worthy of God’s POWER when Jesus paid Ultimate price with His life and BLOOD to set us free!!! Seek first, Kingdom of God’s salvation in Christ, all these things are added by God for HIS GLORY and TESTIMONIES of the BLOOD of the Lamb Jesus defeats devil.

PASTOR RISES FROM DEATH

monthly-180918-1As Jesus rose from death so resurrected a pastor beaten and killed with his body left in a ditch in forest. He miraculously resurrected during the last rites to bury him as all hope was lost. Tilak, a church leader from rural India, was dead. Some of Hindu neighbours complained to a local group of violent extremists Tilak brainwashed villagers to pollute their minds with Christian faith by leading 40 families to Jesus. The extremist group kidnapped Tilak, and when he refused to deny his faith in Christ, they beat him and tortured him. Finally, he collapsed, had no pulse, Tilak was gone. Christian families from Tilak’s village found his body and brought him home. They laid him out in a hut, and people gathered to pay their last respects. Suddenly started to move, his eyes opened Tilak is alive! No one could believe it. Some militants who attacked Tilak were present when he came back to life so they must have been the most shocked of all. They knew what they had done to Tilak. They had tied him up and beaten him with sticks until he had bloody wounds all over his body. Then they made him crawl up a mountain, still beating him with their sticks to force him forwards. When Tilak had taken his last breath they sent for the village doctor to confirm he was dead. Finally, they threw his body in a ditch. There was no way he could have survived. And yet, here he is alive! As Tilak woke up, he could hear people saying, “It was because he believed in Jesus.” God is working in truly amazing ways in India. Countless stories of many believers coming to faith in Jesus Christ through miraculous healings. And the courageous church leaders like Tilak take the hope of the gospel to even the most isolated and hostile communities. But wherever God is at work, there is opposition and powers standing against the Church in India. Some believe being a Hindu is Indian identity so attacks the other faiths, militant Hindu nationalist group linked with BJP; stated they want India rid of Christians and Muslims by the end of 2021. So violent attacks take place against Christians by extremist group linked with some leading political party trying to wipe out the church, it isn’t surprising Christians in India are facing horrific levels of persecution. So about 24,000 Christians were physically attacked last year because of their faith. India is number 11 on the 2018 World Watch List, annual ranking of the 50 countries where Christians face most extreme persecution, its highest ever position. Lust for violence deadens the senses, damages the soul, dangerous, thrill seeking violence blood lust on TV regularly watched in movies or played in computer games desensitized those addicted from innocent age gratified by violent entertainment. Effect of violence viewing habits deaden senses in a way to make them treat humans as objects. It explicit violence grown up with that makes deadened senses, accustomed to shock and horror not afraid to OFFEND GOD who will judge them. The Bible in Romans says they are in error thinking a violence is for God. Book of proverbs warns against enticed violence in Bible.

  • Don’t envy violent or choose their ways in Proverbs 3:31.
  • They eat bread of wickedness and drink wine of violence Proverb 4:17.
  • A violent person lures neighbour on a path not good in Proverbs 16:29.

IMG_20180922_192908Bible commands against violence out of blood lust. Christians, oppose violence because of FREEWILL choice given by God to all decide themselves to make up their own mind without pressure or fear to accept Jesus. The line between virtual and real life violence so blurred  thought of hate action is normalised as a macho powerful domination not evil against a fellow human being. Church requires a childhood education to cure violence in entertainment and freedom of choice to believe in God. Gideon’s idol was asked to deal with change of belief to serve God so people not to intervene for their idol in the Bible. Extremists are stepping up efforts to rid India of the Christians needing intervention from God. Those working through local churches and partners in India since 2000, is extensive but plan a double impact to extend outreach to all corners of India in next two years. Your prayers and long-term support helps to make God’s plan reality to show powers Biblical stand of the Church’s GREATER POWER of Jesus. Gospel is preached to ALL nations according to Acts 1:8, all disciples’ of God must preach the Gospel to whole world. God orders believers to preach or demands blood of an unsaved deprived of Gospel by those who refuse to preach GOSPEL in Ezekiel 3:33. God’s Covenant made with Abraham includes all nations belonging to Jesus the Light of the world of all nations. Resurrection of Jesus derailed those who subdued the Gospel to changed everything. So whole world is being renewed in a New earth under God coming to live in Israel. The entire world is blessed through Jesus’ salvation plan freely given to all who accept God’s gift of forgiveness of sins.  The Gospel message of Jesus life, death and resurrection is to be preached to all nations as God recreates the New earth by grafting in all Gentiles, all people of all nations with the Jews together. The doors to God’s Kingdom is open to the whole world to all who trust and call on the Name of Lord Jesus are saved. God’s family includes all the tribes, cultures, and languages centred around Jesus to reverse the curse of sin. The Holy Spirit in John 16:7-11 helps believer to know God’s punishment concerning evil sins, and righteousness and judgment of all nations on earth. One expects a miracle of resurrection to stir up faith to change the stony hearts to flesh to accept Jesus. Instead the miracle of the pastor raised from death, Tilak’s troubles werent over as a year later militants who attacked him first time threatened to kill entire family if they didn’t leave village. Tilak left village with family at once so not to suffer same extreme torture a year ago, didn’t want same for his family. So they carried absolutely nothing with only had the clothes worn. About six hours later arrived in village in another state; we believed we would be safe there.” By God’s grace, met a man there who heard Tilak preaching and had come to faith. Despite having very little a man offered to share his home with Tilak’s family. gideonssacrificedJust as God sent HIS angel to intervene and help Gideon defeat the enemy so God intervenes supernaturally to save HIS people. Thank God for the hut with one small room to preserve your lives in Jesus Name covered by the blood of Jesus. A bedsheet like curtain in middle of room and family using half of a room divided by curtain for sleeping in night so family uses other half is still miracle. To stay and share whatever in a house with both families is by grace of God to endure. Tilak smiles as he says, “He was a poor man with a big heart.” Another year has passed since then, and the two families are still sharing hut and doing what they can to help each other but even between them, they have very little. Your support and prayers enable partners to provide practical help. But Tilak’s family need more than just help to survive. Tilak says, “It’s a few years, traumatized so not have courage to talk to anyone in the new village or to share gospel.” A Biblical persecution survival training is helping families like Tilak’s to recover from persecution experience to better prepare for persecution they may face in future. It’s a combination of teaching from the Bible, teaching on the Indian constitution and Christians’ legal rights, and sharing testimonies of other persecuted believers to show that they are not alone. Tilak says, persecution survival training experience changes in hearts and minds to keep reminding of the things I learned in the seminar, that God loves them so will always stands by them. God always has a plan for to help persecute people through the partners. God uses prayers and support of people to show church family in India that God has a plan for them not forgotten them. Tilak says, thanks everyone who helped to pray for them and God will increase their blessings.” God rules the world by prayers of His saints as prayer is power used to conquer satan. Through prayer the Church on earth accesses POWER of God in heaven. Stand with persecuted church families in prayer because truly prayer is powerful instrument sharper than a two-edged sword. Send request to whole church to pray for persecuted church families around the world. Hear and share stories of faith and courage from the church in India and stand with them in prayer. The Lord Jesus warns of persecution like days of Nero believers literally made a long queue inviting the torturers to fastback their journey into heaven to be in PRESENCE of God. The Bible says FEAR God who kills soul and body and punishes in hell fire. All who die in Christ live eternal resurrected life with God FOREVER. So to love all people because God is LOVE and Jesus said Love your neighbour as love yourself.

MARRIED 45 GAVE BIRTH 47

God’s Time is the best to fulfil the plans and purpose for your life to Glorify God as Gifty Anti’s testimony shows. This is the Lords doing and it is marvellous in our eyes. Wait on GOD ALMIGHTY and do not lean on your own understanding in all your ways acknowledge God, HE WILL BRING TO PASS IN JESUS NAME. This powerful message is to encourage all people to Seek God’s Face especially for marriage. Do not marry because you feel it’s too late so rush into relationship to destroy you in the end. So many fear they may not get married after a certain age, convince themselves so share the husband of another woman. They miss their own husband due to impatience so regretted later and wished they waited for God. Delay is not denial so better to build up good character and reputation to wait as a virtuous woman. The same goes for men marrying the children too young with undeveloped body to bear a weight of children or be a matured wife. GLORY to God for matured women that are fully grown and to handle marriage better. Those miserable and lonely who think marriage solves all problems must love themselves first to bring good vibes into the marriage. Spend quality time to enjoy the single years dedicated to God and busy minding your own business. It is true marriage is beautiful, wonderful and fulfilling because God created the first marriage in Garden of Eden. God said, it is not good to be alone so made Eve out of Adam’s rib to join one flesh.

Marriage ordained by God so important to organise marriage as God planned and intends. Adam and Eve are created as fully grown adults with all available resources before their marriage was created by God. Time of singlenesss is time preparation towards marriage because such precious times cannot be regained after marriage. The single person is married to God in Christ so devoted to things of God Bible says. A popular saying is that marriage is like a woollen blanket itches when covered by it and cold without it. Those inside it are desperate to get out while those outside can’t wait to get in. Marriage is so great and wonderful because two better than one strengthening each other when the going gets tough. A real life marriage is not just like a fantasy drama of actors pretending to be couples on TV reciting written scripts and paid. Do not base a choice of a life partner on TV drama or Mills and Boons romantic fantasy novel although it contains elements of truth of real life. Marriage that endures lifetime is deeper than TV drama marriage takes the Grace, Mercy and Favour of God to endure the challenges and adversity of life together as a couple. And marriage is NOT HAPPILY EVER AFTER always as novels say it is practical real life matters of building family, relationship with the in-laws, humility, respect for people in the families, Honour, respect and never just the two couples involved. Be ready to become part of bigger family looking after interests of others not just yourself as God planned. Couples celebrate their wedding interact with family to support them in time of need. And never isolate yourselves to be in love to burn bridges because after the dust settles you need all those people to help the marriage to thrive. Isolated marriages are too close for comfort puts too much stress on each other to ruin marriage. A single person is WHOLE PERSON made in the IMAGE OF GOD. So stop thinking you are incomplete without marriage if not married yet or chooses not to marry marriage is not a competition of friends. Do not rush into marriage because you feel left behind by agemates. A real life journey is personal and individual, seek the face of God before marriage. 

Polyandry marriage of women married to more than one husband is common in India, Nigeria, China, Mountain tribes of Asia where there are more women than men. Similar words are polygyny, bigamy and deuterogamy. The Bible says 7 women will take hold of one man and say we are self-sufficient, so have everything already, we just want to be called by your name “Mrs.” Solomon and 700 wives and his 300 concubines, feminists now demand equal rights of polyandry to be like men. God allowed Abraham, Jacob, David among others to have many wives. Though God said, one man join one wife as ONE FLESH people are greedy so want more. After all God and Jesus are too HOLY without sexual needs, without a wife, so how on earth are they going to understand human needs of the flesh? The signs of end time debauchery and lasciviousness like the days of Noah and Sodom and Gomorrah Jesus has warned about will happen be before His coming again. Hope you are all well by the Grace of God. Pray with intense fasting intercession to break family covenant of spiritual marriage you are dedicated to fighting real life spouse. Secrets are not shared by parents so seek deliverance in Jesus Name for a breakthrough. Don’t consult psychics, necromancers, fortune tellers, native doctor herbalist, witch doctor for marriage because you will be initiated to satan and demons will marry you to prevent real life marriage. It may seem they gave you husband or wife but it is loaded with evil because satan does not give anything free without taking back a life of family members to kill, destroy or make them suffer in life. So may not realise your connection to idol shrine is the cause of all family sickness, poverty, and premature deaths. Ancestors sought ‘protection’ from: evil witchcraft, wars, land disputes, chieftaincy by sacrificing the family to shrines. Such generational covenants are known or unknown to family members suffering today. The LORD GOD ALMIGHTY is the source of life and giver of marriage so follow the plan if God for your life. Do not listen to those who ruined their life embarrassed by your virtuous life to deceive you to ruin your life. They may call you “an old maid” left on the shelf but GOD’S TIME is the BEST in Jesus Name. All laughing and mocking you now will see the Glory of God in your life and your testimony in Jesus Name. Others decide to do their own deceived by those who want their life destroyed to spur on to disgrace them. Beware and stand on the word of God for inspiration, hope, assurance in Christ and trust God in Spirit and Truth to beautify your life in His Own Time for you. You will enjoy your marriage because you are  faithful to God so HE WILL Make A WAY for you where there is no way in Jesus Name. The Bible in Exodus 21:10, says a man can marry an infinite amount of women without limits to how many to marry. And in 2 Samuel 5:13; 1 Chronicles 3:1-9, and in 14:3, King David had six wives and his numerous concubines. Also in 1 Kings 11:3, King Solomon had 700 wives and 300 concubines. Again in 2 Chronicles 11:21, King Solomon’s son Rehoboam had 18 wives and 60 concubines. And in Deuteronomy 21:15 A man with two wives loves one but not the other and both bear sons favours one more. The laws of each land dictate the number of spouse according to that culture.  

IMG_20180915_131117If you have Spiritual Father and Mother in Christ go and talk to them privately about your desire to get married. Study Biblical marriage to read good books on marriage from God to help understand marriage better. Ensure you are able to provide marital needs like rent, food, work to have money to pay the bills, to first take care of yourself before you go to add children’s needs into a marriage for more responsibility. Love alone is not enough because love does not pay bills or provide food just because you declare or flaunt how madly you are in love on social media. Be happy first in yourself, see marriage as bonus adding value to your life rather than depending on person to fulfil your life. Impossible to demand spouse totally fulfil all areas of your life needs because you love and married them. You demand they be God who is ONLY ONE Provider that way. Its misunderstanding to destroy marriage because of your assumption a partner will meets all your needs but you do not tell them what your need is. You insist they read your mind to do all you want from them without TALKING to them or doing good to them in return. Marriage is not a ONE WAY culdesac no return of favour done to you. Negotiate with family through the good servant of God with your family in partnership for a spouse. Even if church helps you find spouse include family or if family finds you spouse include the church if a born again believer. You need them along the journey of married life for sure honour family and stay in church in marriage ordained by God. Families give account to God on judgement day so remember God will deal with you as you deal with spouse and fam vily. Check your heart for motives of marriage to be sure you love, show kindness, peace, joy, so loyal, forgives, self-control, laughter help each other, family after honeymoon is over reality sets in. Marriage not for the fainthearted so treat it with respect, honesty, trust be transparent for your own good to help save to preserve your married life in peace. Continue to pray intensely as you did when seeking that life partner to defeat and conquer the onslaught of forces that contend with the marriage. Do not relax and think nobody fights over conquered fortress to settle down so ignore spouse. This is beginning of married life of challenges in relationship. With God all things are possible so be alert watch out pray, seek deliverance in Mighty Name of Jesus!!!

GOOD & EVIL FAST IN BIBLE

Proven health benefits of fasting

Bible verses on fasting help decide the kind of fast and purpose of fast. In Luke 4:2-4 Jesus Fasted and Prayed 2 for forty days and was then tempted by the devil. He ate nothing during those days so was hungry. 3 The devil said to him, “If you are the Son of God then turn stones into bread.” 4 Jesus answered, “It is written man shall not live bread alone.’ Jesus told His disciples in Matthew 17:21 and Mark 9:29 in the Bible evil spirits of that kind is only driven out by prayer and fasting. Power of prayer and fasting enables intense time of prayer with God to focus more to seek the Face of God to become more empowered and receive God’s direction to take action. Except by prayer, answers and miracles from God are unattainable, hindered by spiritual wickedness in high places. Fasting is a Biblical normal part of Christian life in obedience for God to hear and answer prayer when HE wants to do so. People fast for various reasons in Bible, based on circumstances God is sought after. Prayer for breakthrough breaks barrier through power of the Holy Spirit’s outpouring. Fasting is part of God’s warfare strategy to defeat the demons of rebellion, pride, witchcraft, poverty and lack. When evil witchcraft spiritual attacks unfold God’s POWER manifest to destroy it in the Mighty Name of Jesus. The evil curses and witchcraft spells are broken and removed in the Name of Jesus to get solution to live in peace and experience healing from God in Jesus Name. Before starting a fast if you have any health or medical problems check with a doctor if on medication. A person starting fast, if first time, especially the young children fast half a day drinking water or fruit juice praying from 6am-12 noon is more than enough for God to answer prayer. If there are no health problems the next level is a full day fasting with water or fruit juice, to help the body to cope with withdrawal of food. If prayer or fasting lasts for three days it is wise to drink water or fruit juice to ensure the body is healthy and coping well. Jesus the Son of God’s body lasted without food for 40 days. An ordinary human body must be careful because the body lasts from two days to a week without liquids but the person’s health, weather and individual physical activity levels help determine how long a person lasts without water. Estimating how long bodies do without food or water tends to depend on weeks worth of reserve energy from food in the body already. Water regulates body temperature, digestion, waste disposal, hydration, 7 days is the maximum limit the body can cope. God’s General Robert Liardon once said, if prayer and fasting is not heard or answered by God within three days something is seriously wrong so join prayer agreement with matured mentor prayer warriors to deal with the root of persistent problem. If one defeat a thousand and two defeat ten thousand then to see value of corporate prayer in Jesus Name. Stop fasting immediately to seek deliverance and Godly direction to overcome challenges. Never start a dry fast without water and food more than three days unless trained Biblically first to know and understand the reasons for fasting. Do not fast for 7 days without any water or fruit unless you are under the authority and guidance of seasoned pastor among other believers for help or support. Do not copy people bragging of fasting: 10, 14, 21, 40, 70 days to think God will answer your prayer too. There is special reason long fasting is required in group fasting for the religious rituals. Children or sick people must never be forced to fast because you fast on behalf of family. The Bible allows intercession prayer on behalf of family household so everyone cannot be forced to partake in it before God HEARS. A personal prayer Jesus says, go into private closet to pray so God will hear to openly reward you.  

Matthew 6:16-18 Fast in Secret

16 “When you fast, do not look sad like hypocrites to disfigure faces to show others you are fasting. Truly I tell you, you will not receive reward from God. 17  When you fast put oil on your head, wash your face 18 so it’s not obvious to others you are fasting, but only Father Goprayerssecret prayers to reward you.

Luke 18:1-12 Persistent Prayer

1 Jesus told his disciples this parable to show them they should always pray and not give up. 2 He said: In a certain town was a judge who did not fear God or cared what people thought. 3 There was a widow in town who kept going to him to plea, ‘Grant me justice against enemy’ 4 “For some time he refused but finally said to himself, ‘though I don’t fear God or care what people think because this widow keeps bothering me I will see to it she gets justice, so she won’t bother me’ ”6 The LORD said, “Listen to what an unjust judge says. 7 If so will God not bring justice for HIS chosen ones, who cry out to him day and night? Will HE keep put them off? 8 I tell you, HE will see they get justice quickly. So when the Son of Man comes, will He find faith on earth?” 9 Those confident of their own righteousness look down on everyone. Jesus told a parable: 10 “Two men went to temple to pray, a Pharisee and a tax collector. 11 The Pharisee stood and prayed: ‘God, I thank you I am not like others, robbers, evildoers, adulterers or like this tax collector. 12 I fast twice a week and give tenth of all that I get.’ An attitude of repentance and humility is essential for God’s intervention to fast:

1. To prepare for ministry. Jesus spent 40 days and nights in wilderness fasting and praying before He did God’s work on earth. He spent time alone preparing for His Father’s work in Matthew 4:1-17; Mark 1:12-13; Luke 4:1-14.

2. To seek God’s wisdom. Paul and Barnabas prayed and fasted for elders of the churches before committing them to the Lord for His service in Acts 14:23.

3. To show grief. Nehemiah mourned, fasted, and prayed when he learned Jerusalem’s walls broke down, leaving the Israelites vulnerable and disgraced in Nehemiah 1:1-4.
4. To seek deliverance or protection. Ezra declared corporate fast and prayed for safe journey for Israelites as they travelled 900 miles to Jerusalem from Babylon in Ezra 8:21-23.

5. To repent. After Jonah’s judgements against Nineveh city, the king covered himself with sackcloth and sat in the dust with people to fast and pray for 40 days. In Jonah 3:10, “God saw how they turned from their evil ways so forgave

6. To gain victory. After losing 40,000 men in battle in two days, the Israelites cried to God for help. In Judges 20:26 the people went to Bethel, “sat weeping before the Lord.” They “fasted that day until evening.” The next day the Lord gave them victory over the Benjamites.

7. To worship God. Luke 2:37 says that 84 year old prophetess Anna never left temple but worshiped God night and day, fasting and praying, devoted to God and fasting expressing love for God.
Despite biblical examples throughout.1311842338-6f57a9d67ae9a73cfdd2377ecd71f394_n

1 Kings 21:25-27 Godly Humility

Ahab sold himself to do evil in the eyes of the LORD, urged on by Jezebel his wife. 26 He behaved in vilest manner by going after idols like Amorites the LORD drove out before Israel. 27 Ahab heard God’s words from prophet Elijah, tore his clothes, put on sackcloth fasted, lay in sackcloth and went around humbly.

Let everyone call urgently on God. Let them give up their evil ways and their violence. 9 Who knows?

Your fast ends in fighting, strife and in striking others with wicked fists. And so cannot fast that way and expect your voice to be heard by God. 5 Is this the kind of fast I have chosen, only a day for people to humble themselves? Is it only for bowing one’s head like a reed and for lying in sackcloth and ashes? Is that what you call a fast day acceptable to the LORD? 6 “Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen: to loose chains of injustice to untie the cords of the yoke, to set oppressed free and break every yoke? 7 Is it not to share your food with the hungry to provide poor wanderer with shelter when you see the naked, to clothe them, and not to turn away from your own flesh and blood? Despite the biblical examples throughout Scripture, the wicked people fast too, using fear, ignorance or rebellion to compel others to indulge in evil actions. Jezebel used a witchcraft magic to influence people to cast mind bending spells to manipulate people to join her to attack Naboth. Like going to native witchdoctors, Baal idol worshippers to fast three days to attack Naboth to kill him for his family land king Ahab coveted after murder. It is necessary to know unbelievers fast to their gods to dedicate themselves and to celebrate their feasts. Spiritualists and a new age meditation fast to cleanse their body and thoughts. Medical treatments requires people to abstain from food for long hours for better access to organs to check in details the damaged tissues. It is used to help some medications work better in the body. Therefore the motive and purpose of a fast is very important before starting fast. It’s good to build up and prepare body well fed in advance if going to fast for a long time. Combining prayer and fasting with deliverance is the best way to achieve best results. It is not the length of days of fasting that is a condition for receiving answer. It is the attitude of repentance, humility, Mercy, Grace, lamentations, Kindness, Favour of God that touches God’s heart to hear and forgive people. God decides time to help in HIS Own way it’s not starvation that forces God to answer prayer. If its starvation that caused God to answer prayer the hungriest people all over the would be most blessed. In addition, the fast must be accompanied by realistic practical solutions available it is not by torturing the flesh that brings miracles. You get closer to God through the Name and the BLOOD of Jesus if a born-again Christian believer. Deliverance through a deeper matured deliverance minister is necessary in extreme cases to be free from demons causing family problems. Some cases need God’s wisdom, support from friends and family and the right organisations. In the western world the resources available can help without a fast. Fasting is for spiritual growth and devotion as well as God’s intervention. Help must be sought through available means spiritually, physically to ensure emotional well-being of those fasting. The devil comes to steal, kill to destroy so check your heart about motives and purpose of your fast. Fasting or praying to covet another person’s spouse, break marriage to marry partner, fast to take another’s property as in Naboth’s case is witchcraft in 1 Kings 21:12. To proclaim fast to take Naboth’s asset is greed, envy and jealousy. Jezebel’s plot got what she wanted from a fast but God ALMIGHTY judged them immediately. In the Bible in Acts 23:12-35 people plot to kill Paul the next morning. Some Jews vowed by oath not to eat or drink until they kill Paul. The fanatics want to kill Paul for believing in resurrection, angels, Holy Spirit did not like his teachings in the Bible. A group of more than forty Jews vowed to kill Paul but he managed to escape on a tip off from his sister’s son. They lied Paul is troublemaker, stirs up riots among Jews all over the world as a ringleader of Nazarene sect to desecrate temple seized him. Agrippa examined him to  learnt truth about false charges against him. The other Jews joined in accusation asserting lies were true. The governor let Paul speak but accusers did not find him arguing with anyone at the temple, stirred crowd in the synagogues or anywhere else in city did not prove charges made. Admits he worshipped God of ancestors, follows of way of laws written in prophets with hope in God as the men in resurrection of the righteous and wicked, his conscience clear before God and man. Paul is sent to Rome after two years so lived and preached until his death during Nero’s rule. Attacks by evil fast makes people hungry, angry and violent so seems to get away with it but years later God judges the bloodlust damage caused to others. You may not later like what you fasted and prayed for. Let God’s words guide you in Spirit and in Truth in Jesus Name to supply all your needs from heaven. Do speak to people despite fasting for God uses human beings to answer prayer or needs in Jesus Name. God will not come down personally physically in front of you to give you the miracles. So speak to people as God may reveal your needs in advance to them to provide your needs through them. Use practical wisdom so not let shame or embarrassment cause you to hide in isolation overwhelmed by fear or frustration in anger against God yet fasting. Its good to fast appropriately as Bible requires but not to ‘crucify’ the flesh recklessly in the Name of God. Fasting alone is not enough in satanic cult deliverance so needs God’s prophet to cast that demon out in the Mighty Name of Jesus. Some problems need Spiritual Father in the LORD to guide and support you. So don’t in silence seek help in Jesus Name. GLORY to God.
