JESUS HELP YOU TO BELIEVE

5486c7cc-8b0d-470b-9bf3-3ac690311128Jesus told a man to believe in God as He healed his son because of his unbelief in Mark 9:23-25. Jesus told him, believe, all things are possible to all who believe. So 24 the father said with tears, now Lord I believe, help my unbelief. 25 Jesus saw people running near them rebuked the unclean spirit said, you “Deaf and dumb spirit, I command you, come out of him and enter him no more. Jesus knew some people doubt God’s power and discredit His miracles to beelzebub. A belief in the power of God by faith heals some people. Despite belief, faith in God in action, Jesus taught disciples healings need fasting power of agreement. Jesus cast out 1000 demons in Matthew 8:28-34 as demons begged Jesus, “If you drive us out send us into the sea inside pigs. In Luke 8:30, Mark 5:1-20 Jesus asked “What is your name?” the man said, “legion for we are many.” Disciples had faith but didn’t heal a boy. Jesus healed the boy so changed his life. Deliverance from idols, pagan practice reconciles man with God. The believer is equipped to deliver and cast out evil spirits by God’s help in Jesus Name. So  fasting is essential to cast out demons, and power of witchcraft that disgrace.18cdf4db-57ed-41d4-a8da-dd124ca746f1Jesus’ home town Nazareth did not see many miracles due to their unbelief. It’s faith of trusting God that helps a person to receive healing. Other cases requires combinations of healing and the use of medications. Faith and medicine is the issue in some churches people prefer to die than be treated with medications. In Genesis God formed Eve by performing surgery on Adam, took his ribs to create a wife for him. Hezekiah ill about to die, God sent a prophet to tell him prepare to die. He cried to God who changed HIS mind extends his life 15 years. God told him to prepare herbs to drink for three days and go into the Temple to worship God. Issue of whether to limit healing to stop using medications and live by faith in God goes on. God performed surgery on Adam and prescribed foods or herbs to eat. As modern large pharmaceutical companies did not exist doctors mixed own ingredients for the patients. Others took prescribed herbs home to boil and drink for many days before health gets better. Most families had their garden of herbs for treatments of ailments. Others foods are medicines organic and rich in minerals and nutrients. Some choose to combine treatment with medication but deal with issues of side effects treated.xHealing is instant or a complex process to consider not definite if require longer treatments. Can affect people who reject medical treatment of doctors or hospital costs bankrupting the family. Many lose jobs if unable to work due to illness. The woman with the issue of blood received medical treatment is not cured touched Jesus garments to be healed. So families sacrifice everything to provide the most affordable treatments. Loved one may not survive life worse financially. Jesus healed a young boy whose father asked for healing but disciples could not heal the boy. Trust and confidence in healing power of God in Jesus in prayer at times is enough. Jesus asks mocking doubters to leave room in private to heal person. Mixed message cause misunderstanding believe to receive God. Negative words can affect a patient’s belief by faith and healing process works by love, hope will to live looking forward to a healthy life. Healing of God makes well not giving up hope by negative thoughts of suffering, depresses to give up to lose will to live. Edzard Ernst the Emeritus Professor at University of Exeter said a “reason why most put on ‘negative energy’ is simple pure figment of imagination of fantasy.  Some VIPs nonsense result in desperate patient believing them choose nonsense over best real medicine on offer hastens death. Their condition is not worse as a joyful hopeful person’s case so positive people endure better than their focus on negatives of the illnesses. Rapidly go downhill despite all excellent teams of experts doing their best to help them24563 Jesus said some are healed by fasting and prayers. Jesus told disciples they couldn’t heal boy prayed because it needs fasting. Isaiah 58 says fast, cry out, lift your voice like trumpet, for their transgression and the house of Jacob their sins. Seek God daily, delight to know My ways don’t forsake laws of God. They say they take delight in God complain fasts see no reward, afflict our soul but God takes no notice? God hates fast manipulating exploiting workers 4 by strife strike with fist of wickedness 5 Not heard by God for fast afflicting soul, bow down head in sackcloth, ashes, call a fast to the Lord? 6 The fast God chose is loose bonds of wickedness undo the  heavy burdens let oppressed go free to break every yoke. 7 Share your bread with the hungry bring to your house the poor cast out cover naked. 8 Then your light shall break forth like the morning, Your healing spring forth speedily, your righteousness go before you; The glory of the LORD is your rear guard. 9 Then you shall call and the Lord will answer; You will cry and He will say, ‘Here I am.’ Take away the yoke, don’t point finger and speak wickedness. 10 Extend your soul to the hungry, satisfy afflicted soul, Your light shall dawn in darkness, Your darkness as noonday. 11 The LORD  will guide and satisfy your soul in droughts, strengthen your bones; You shall be like a watered garden, like a spring of water 12 You will build waste places, raise up foundations of many generations; you will be called repairer of the breach and restorer of streets to dwell in 13 Honour Sabbath holy day. 14 Delight yourself in the LORD to cause you to ride on high hill of earth to feed you with heritage of Jacob your father the LORD has spoken.downloadfile-129 Seven sons of Sceva attempted to cast a demon from a man in Ephesus by using the name of Jesus in Acts 19:11-20. They saw Peter and Paul cast out demons and tried to copy them. The man beat them up and tore their clothes stripped them naked. In Matthew 12:45 demon cast out goes to take seven spirits more wicked than himself to enter in to dwell there so the last state of the person is worse than before. Continue fasting each week at least once after deliverance don’t stop fasting deals with the evil spirits behind roots of problems so it needs more than prayers. Beginner doing first fast do half day with water but first prepare body to adjust. Eat well the day before to give strength to your body to endure better. Give thanks to God for your life, family, blessings, worship God in Jesus Name. Repent of your sins in Jesus Name through blood of Jesus to ask God’s grace and mercy. Forgive the people who mock, hurt, offend you and focus on God. Write a prayer request list dated and space for testimony date. Best deal with one request unless an urgent emergency need arises. Read the fasting text in Bible that refers to your need. Do not set any fixed time for God’s answer. Trust God’s timing, wisdom and solution even if it’s not what you asked for. God does not answer prayer not HIS WILL to show off to satisfy your ego and pride. It is God’s desire to answer prayer but not a supermarket list to supply your wants. ed1ec0f1-8fcb-4412-922f-67d62f27c083God meets your needs not your wants to prove he is a great provider. Be realistic don’t assume because you love God HE will do as you demand. Sometimes after fasting you may not get instant answers because fasting is not blackmail to force God to fast track your request. God is so Sovereign and loves you first, love Him more than material things.  Do not think accumulating material things equals the higher status before God. Look at Jesus who wins souls as priority than boast in wealth. The blessings of God makes rich and adds no sorrow if acquired rightly. If half day fast worked well then check with your doctor to try a full day fast if approved and your health is alright. Do same things you did during half day fast and drink water. Do the three days fast if you feel well and approved by doctor. Jesus fasted 40 days prepare your body by short day fasts before 21 or 30 days fast if your doctor agrees. Fasting fulfills God’s plan, purpose in your life through Jesus Name in humility by thankfulness to God. Having done all stand even if no answer received. Hebrews 10:26-29 says don’t sin deliberately after receiving the knowledge of God’s truth or no sacrifice for sin is left 27 but fearful judgment in hellfire consume enemies of God. 28 All who rejected law of Moses died without mercy on the testimony of two or three witnesses. 29 How much punishment by God awaits all who trample Son of God Jesus underfoot or Holy Spirit and blood of the covenant that sanctified them to insult Spirit of grace? Seek God’s mercy.

61k09qfysRLPraise, Thank, Glorify God for eternal life reunion in the resurrection. God is for all nations all people, Galatians 3:28, says “In Christ there is no Jew or Gentile slave or free, male or female, (black or white all are one in Christ Jesus.” God of Abraham sent to the Jews first and ALL NATIONS countless as stars of heaven or sand of the sea. Christ loves NATIONS grafted in God’s kingdom. Jesus whips money changers he told God’s Temple is HOUSE OF PRAYER FOR ALL NATIONS not only Jews. God told Peter in vision kill and eat animals from four corners of world in Acts 10:9-11:18 Peter said, 14 “Lord “I don’t eat anything impure because Kosher food is for Jews. Romans 14:17 says the kingdom of God is not eating, drinking its righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. Jesus said a man must not live by bread alone but by every word from mouth of God in Matthew 4:4 from Deuteronomy 8:3. The LORD God told Peter go and baptise Gentiles. Peter was shocked the Gentiles received Holy Spirit he felt was only for Jews. God taught Peter the lesson not to discriminate against Gentile believers. In Revelation 3:20 Jesus stands at their door and knocks, all who hear My voice and open the door will come to eat with them. Jewish proselyte male converts in ALL NATIONS under the sun in Israel at passover three times a year. Ethiopian Eunuch and Simon of Cyerene in Libya, Africa among God’s ALL NATIONS black convert Jews. Jesus told disciples preach from Jerusalem to Judaea and uttermost parts of the world to make disciples of ALL NATIONS. This is how Christianity spread from Jews to Gentiles globally. NATIONALITIES_700x442ALL WHO ACCEPT JESUS CHRIST ARE CHILDREN OF GOD, JOINT HEIRS WITH JESUS, ROYAL PRIESTS WILL RULE ALL NATIONS. WORSHIP GOD UNDER JESUS KING OF Kings. God’s throne in heaven is surrounded by countless multitudes of people from ALL NATIONS, TRIBES LANGUAGES holding palm branches all saved in GREAT TRIBULATION. The New Jerusalem from heaven will come down to Israel with these countless multitudes from ALL NATIONS in the New Heaven to New Earth and God will dwell among all men forever on earth. Share Gospel’s power from God to save the Jews FIRST then Gentiles in Romans 1:16. Apostles and disciples were first Jews. In Acts 1:8 they received power of the Holy Spirit in them to preach in Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria and into ALL NATIONS in the world. Those who reject Messiah Jesus will cry and mourn when they look on Jesus they pierced and mourn as one mourns for the death of his only son. In Daniel 7:13, Jesus will appear in heaven as the sign of the Son of Man, all tribes of the earth will mourn says Zechariah 12:10. They will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with great power and glory in Matthew 24:30. Revelation 1:7 says He is coming in the clouds and every eye will see Him even those who pierced Him. All tribes of the earth will weep seeing Him, even so come. Amen. In Revelation 19:13-19 God’s vengeance will vindicate. 13 Jesus dressed in His robe dipped in blood His name is Word of God. 14 With armies of heaven riding white horses dressed in fine linen and clean. 15 Out of his mouth is a sharp sword to strike down nations. “He will rule them with iron scepter.” He treads winepress of fury of wrath of God Almighty. 16 On His robe and thigh He has Name written KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS. 17 An angel standing in the sun in loud voice to birds flying midair, “Come, for the great supper of God 18 Eat the flesh of kings generals, mighty men, horses and riders, free, slave, great and small.”  19 The beast, kings of earth and armies wage war against Jesus rider on a horse and his army will defeat them forever. Abusers of power desperate autocrat or tyrants hide in bunkers. JESUS WARNS GOD DEMAND BLOOD of humans shed from evil hands. Empowered autocrats tyrants use Martial laws in a peace time by the trigger happy bullies punished by GOD, HE SEES AND KNOWS evil doers. God keeps ACCURATE RECORD of events happening on the earth will hold each person accountable for all their actions.

In Your hand is POWER and MIGHT no one can withstand You. 7 You God drove out inhabitants of this land before Your people Israel given to descendants of Abraham Your friend 8 to dwell built Temple in Your name.

We have no power against a great multitude against us or know what to do but our eyes are on You.” 13 Judah, with the little ones, wives, children all before the LORD. The Spirit on Jahaziel son of Zechariah of Benaiah of Jeiel Mattaniah, Levite of Asaph in assembly. 15 He said, Judah and inhabitants of Jerusalem and King Jehoshaphat The LORD says, ‘Don’t not be afraid of the great multitude the battle is the LORD’S. 17 Go tomorrow to Ascent of Ziz to find them by brook  in wilderness of Jeruel. 17 You do not need to fight in the battle, stand still and see the salvation of the LORD who is with you, Judah and Jerusalem!’ Don’t fear or be dismayed the LORD is with you.” 18 Jehoshaphat bowed his head and face to the ground, Judah and Jerusalem bowed before the LORD to worship the LORD. 20 Levites, children of Kohathites and Korahites praised the LORD with loud voices. 20 The morning in wilderness of Tekoa, Jehoshaphat said, “Hear me, Oh Judah and inhabitants of Jerusalem: Believe in the LORD your God to be established so believe His prophets to prosper.” They appointed singers to the LORD to praise the beauty of HIS holiness, went before army sang, “Praise the Lord, HIS mercy endures forever.” 22 Sang praises to the LORD ambushed Ammon, Moab, Mount Seir defeated, made end of Seir so they destroyed one another. 24 Judah came to wilderness looked at the multitude of dead bodies. 25 Jehoshaphat and people took spoil, abundant valuables, precious jewelry in three days had so much. 26. On fourth day in Valley of Berachah so blessed the LORD in place called Valley of Berachah valley of Blessings valley of Jehoshaphat for Jehovah God’s victory over Moab and Ammon main road from Hebron to Jerusalem. 27 All returned to Judah and Jerusalem with Jehoshaphat in front, with joy the LORD made them rejoice over enemies. 28 In Jerusalem they played stringed instruments harps, trumpets in house of LORD. Fear of God fell on nations who heard the LORD has destroyed Israel’s enemies. 30 God gave Jehoshaphat REST OF GOD. We pray in agreement Father God gives you REST OF GOD in VICTORY in Jesus Name. We praise you LORD, thank you Jesus thank you Holy Spirit for comforting us daily.

JESUS OF NAZARETH ISRAEL

Jesus lived in Nazareth in Israel raised a carpenter in His family business after His family returned from Egypt at age 3. Age 3 to 30 years is early, lost or missing silent years in Bible detail His activities living in Nazareth till 30. In early years Jesus is an active young boy growing to adulthood attends synagogue with His family. Each year His family travelled to Jerusalem Temple for the passover feast so Jesus led a normal life. He had a Bar mitzvah in the Hebrew: בַּר מִצְוָה Jewish coming of age ritual of boys at 13 years or Bat mitzvah for girls at 12 years old  in the Jewish law accountable for His actions so old enough and responsible.

He attended a wedding feast at Cana in John 2:1-12 and Mark 2:1-12-33 gives details of Jesus’ first miracle. wedding at Cana marked the beginning of Christ’s many miracles. He did this first public miracle by turning water to wine for the guests. During wedding wine run out at Cana so Mary His mother asked Jesus to help. Mary told the servants to follow all instructions. Jesus told them fill the jars with water and fetch water to host was surprised best quality wine served last not knowing its first miracle of Jesus.

In Matthew 3:13-17, Luke 3:21-22, Mark 1: 9–13 Jesus is publicly revealed at His baptism by John as God’s voice confirms Jesus is the true Messiah. Jesus travelled from Nazareth at 30 years is baptised by John the Baptist before ministry began. Jesus moved to Capernaum and lived in Peter’s house began his ministry age 30 to 33 years. He attended synagogue with His disciples in Capernaum so did many miracles there. His family and disciples travelled to Temple in Jerusalem for the passover. Jesus followed normal Jewish  customs enjoys fishing in sea of Galilee.

Jesus was with his disciples and healed Peter’s mother in sick with fever. So she got better and prepared a meal for the men. Jesus continued to live with Peter in Capernaum and so travelled through the land of Israel and the nearby places to preach the Gospel. He healed the sick and cast out devils. He raised the dead and fed thousands of people in Israel or cities visited during His 3 year ministry.

Jesus early boyhood 12 years to 18 years to adulthood was spent in Nazareth and DID NOT GO to India to learn mysticism of pagans religions. Jesus said so many false Christs will rise to deceive, exploit people in His Name. They will even do great miracles and call fire down from heaven to deceive many. Jesus said test all the spirits to discern if they are from God. If they say to you Jesus is here and beware as the elect don’t be deceived in Matthew 24 in Bible. Jesus said endtime signs of many false prophets deceiving many doing miracles in His Name but He will tell them to depart from Him to go into hell because they were unsaved. They used the Name of Jesus to deceive for selfish reasons to show off power to people to take credit for God’s GLORY. Paul said he didn’t want to lead people to Jesus Christ but perish by unbelief. It is possible to do Church church for the wrong reasons, prosperity for material gains. Yet unsaved, rejected by Jesus as goats thrown into hellfire forever. Seek God’s grace, mercy, forgiveness, repent not to gain the whole world to lose your soul by a new age interfaith lies that all roads lead to heaven. Jesus is the ONLY WAY NO ONES GOES TO FATHER GOD EXCEPT THROUGH NAME OF JESUS.

HAVE A BLESSED NEW YEAR

JESUS KING OF Kings/Princes

20190901_215455.jpgJesus is KING OF Kings and Princes Who return to rule in Israel. Revelation 20:4+ says resurrected saints rule and reign with Christ. Jesus and saints return with a heavenly army in Jude 1:14 as Enoch the seventh from Adam prophesied. The Lord comes with ten thousands of His saints and many passages in the old and new testament confirm saints will rule. Isaiah 32:1 says the righteous reign with Messiah and princes rule with justice. Daniel and John says saints rule after the beast destroyed in Revelation 19:20 in Second Coming of Christ, reign of saints not yet come. Four kings arise out of earth but saints of Most High God will receive to possess kingdoms forever in Daniel 7:17-18. The Ancient of Days will come to judge but favour saints of Most High in Daniel 7:21-22. God’s Kingdom,  dominion, greatness of kingdoms under the whole heaven given saints. Kingdom is everlasting, dominions will serve and obey Jesus in Daniel 7:27. Jesus given an authority over cities Luke 19:17-19. Not as James and John want position on left and right of Jesus share rule in Mathew 20:20, Mark 10:37. Revelation 3:21 says Jesus tells overcomers to sit with Him on His throne as He sits on His father’s throne: God’s gives high authority to the believers with Jesus on David’s throne in Matthew 25:31 as kings on this earth. This kings and priests of God’s kingdom iRevelation 5:10 reign in the FUTURE as kings and priests to God. Joint heirs with Jesus as believers in God’s Word by royal priesthood. New new creations as His special people, Body of Christ, heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ Jesus. KINGS AND PRIEST.jpgAs Jesus Rules and Reigns all in Christ will rule and reign as kings, queens and royal priests on earth. Jesus is ONLY KING’S KINGDOM citizens made Kings and Queens. People in other kingdoms are NOT ALL Kings as UNIQUE Kingdom of God. People must know because some are going around saying they kings and queens. In Deuteronomy 17:14–15, God said, “ In land the LORD your God gives you say, ‘set king over us like all nations be sure to appoint a king LORD chooses. God promised Jacob, Nations will come from you and kings among descendants in Genesis 35:11, Genesis 36:31; 49:10; Numbers 24:7–9; Deuteronomy 28:36. In Bible, Jezebel the woman she – devil in 1 Kings 16:31; 18:4-19; 19:1, 2; 21:5-25; 2 Kings 9 manipulates King Ahab to control nation. Its a misnomer to encourage the people to think all are kings and queens all at the same time. One reigning king and queen and subordinate kings and queen living in harmony. Hierarchy structure of kingship is birthright seniority from God but exceptions happen on special occasions. Hierarchy structure includes set formal positions with authority of each king. A paramount King is bowed to by lesser king during durbars. During procession event lesser king got out of his palaquin to walk on foot by a Senior King’s palace as a sign of respect and honour. Repeats again on return after procession to sit in palaquin after passing the King’s palace. Each king holds their strategic positions in battle knows which location to be in to cover the Senior King permanently associated with each kingdom. These kings meet together at international and local level to help celebrate community and to keep in touch with the citizens. thought-1.jpgDisputes or differences settled amicably but warring faction may disagree on the issues they do not see eye to eye. This is a traditional kingship which treats their king as God’s representative on earth. A lesser king brings specific gifts, tributes, to the Senior Kings. During the hunting season parts of the game veal belonging to Senior King given to them. A public  sitting, arrival, processions are all based on preset protocol of Kingdom structure for thousands of years. Highly followed protocol based on hierarchy of an office and position of a king is established by the traditions. They are not based on the favouritism or popularity of the King or opinions of the people. Those close to a kings family are trained from birth to be aware of these traditions. People not familiar with a kingdom rule may find a standard protocol strange but it has the very role to establish order and security or safety. Some misunderstand protocol demand to be treated as they like do not respect a traditional setting structure. Some declare they are kings wear huge gold chains, gold teeth, distorts true reality of kingship. Lack humility and mislead people by delusion of grandeur megalomaniac impostor syndrome of a royal paranoia always feeling superior to others. Do not submit to authority or understand that kings are not arrogant pompous tyrants who order the people around. Its King makers who choose a humble considerate and pliable person they feel will cope well with position. They are trained and taught kingship is duty for life not self aggrandisement for negative attention seeking behaviour to outshine others and to show off to the world. It is essential to educate modern generations about social structure to understand role of subjects and citizens. Lack of modern education makes social media want to dictate structures they do not fully understand. Security reasons require discreet communication silence, using trained eyes, blink, wink, handle position of teacup, bags, subtle language in the presence of dignitaries. One cannot be blunt, raw or outspoken all the time for personal safety. Revelation 8:1 says when the Lamb opens seventh seal is silence in heaven for about half an hour. There is a time to speak and a time to be silent we must know when to talk and when to say nothing as Bible says in Ecclesiastes 3:17. Jesus SUBMITS to God yet He is the ONLY KING of Kings SEATED AT GOD’S RIGHT HAND. Good to know wealth or fame is not reason to become king. Some think being rich in powerful positions automatically makes them king. So make unrealistic demand on others to fulfil their fantasy so if they are rebuffed get so angry and irrational. They live in a utopia fantasy world with blindspots not realising life is tough and challenging so must adapt and grow up.  Must put other people first because life is not exclusively only all about them. IMG-20191029-WA0004.jpgThere is ONLY ONE KING OF Kings Jesus Head of all Children of God. Jesus warns in the last days highminded people who feel above their station have minds on physical things not real things of God. God is not retained in their thoughts in Psalm 10:4, Romans 1, despise authority do their own thing for they think they are superior to God and Jesus. They are presumptuous, self-willed, impose their strong will on others by their way or no way behaviour, act out of dictates of their own hearts to influence public opinion than following God with humility and trusting HIM to bring HIS WILL to pass. 2 Peter 3 says: 1 Know in the last days perilous times will come 2 people will be lovers of themselves lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, 4 traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure than lovers of God 5 having form of godliness but deny God’s power. From such turn away 6 For this sort creep in houses and make captives of silly women load down with sins, led away by lusts 7 always learning and never able to come to knowledge of truth. 8 As Jannes and Jambres resisted Moses, resist truth, men of corrupt minds disapproved of by faith 9 will not progress their folly manifests to all they misled. Man of God using Word of God must 10 follow doctrine, lead Godly life, faith, longsuffering, love, perseverance 11 face challenges like Antioch, Iconium endured as the LORD delivered. 12 All who live Godly in Christ go through life challenges 13 as the evil men impostors grow worse deceive so deceived.KINGS AND PRIESTS.jpg2 Peter 3 says 14 You continue in things learnt in childhood 15 known Holy Scriptures to make you wise for salvation by faith in Christ. 16 All Scripture is given by inspiration of God is profitable for doctrine, reproof, correction instruction, righteousness 17 man of God to be complete equipped for good works. ONLY JESUS MILLENNIAL REIGN believers made kings so don’t be deceived or think too highly of yourself not submit to God. Daniel 2:21 says God changes times seasons HE makes  kings,  removes kings, promote kings. HE gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the humble. A TV show put only kings in a house without servants so did chores, cooked, cleaned. SOVEREIGN LORD gave Jesus all POWER of authority in heaven and earth in Matthew 28:18-19. To teach all nations, baptizing them in Name of Father God, Son, Holy Spirit. Jesus in John 14:12–14 gives power as crucified risen Christ. But satan tries to be like Most High God in Ezekiel, Isaiah 14 cast out of heaven. So Most High God is KING could not have another king in heaven. Kings and queens in kingdoms so no two kings or queens at same time. After satan cast out of heaven to earth the world became his kingdom as ruler of world in John 12:31. Kingdom of God has One KING, Jesus Christ ruling KING in 1 Corinthians 15:28. Jesus refused the offer of satan to make him king after He fasted 40 days and nights in wilderness. In future all overcomer saints rule with Jesus as sons and daughters of God. The Kingdom of God gives leadership power of dominion to saints. Jesus is Absolute KING OF Kings and Lord of lords.

The music is fusion of sounds from Ghana, Burkina Faso, Guinea, Gambia, Uganda, Morocco, Belgium, Scotland, England, Denmark, and France. instruments include Kora, Ngoni, Gimbre, Krakab, Axatse, sticks, Gakogui, Seprewa, Sogo, Apentema, Kpanlogo, Atumpani, Fontonfrom, Dondo, Endingidi, Goje, Bolong, Atenteben Flute, the orchestral Flute and Egoe Calabash Gourd.

The drum travelled across Atlantic on a slave ship used to exercise slaves to keep healthy. Music legacy of drumming on plantations by over 12 million Africans transported to America between 1501-1800s. Provided labour for mines, plantations of sugar, rice, tobacco and cotton. Drumming, African musical tradition in colonies of different music, shouts, hollars, work songs, fife, drum and spirituals. Ghana drum opens news broadcast with ‘Ghana muntie’ ie Ghana listen.   

Music of 12 million Africans into Brazil, Caribbean, America by Europeans from West Africa. Europe used war captive as slaves to farm plantations and domestic slaves. Chained below deck, did not see outside travelling on deck to breathe air or dance. Shackled, densely packed like sardines got sick some died, killed from their societies at sea. Sloane’s collected the material culture of Drum objects in African-American slave trade era. These middle passage forced Africans to dance to exercise for slave labour. Akan drum reached Virginia as musical instrument coerced circulate as cultural resources is used in African international music.

Sloane recorded slave music in Jamaica of African drum, guitar. African-Americans play guitar or drums identity of community. Planters didn’t tolerate performances of slave societies. Sloane notes instrument bans didn’t make drums ddisappear. Sloane collected slave artefacts in C18th tools, clothing, whips, nooses, weapons or anatomical remains. Objects, were gifts from correspondents or collectors, judged Sloane on Caribbean’s natural history slavery. The Akan drum donor Reverend Clerk to Sloane identified it “as Indian drum,” but its African. True identity of African objects survived and circulated by slave traders, recreated by slaves for music to dance to. downloadfile-33.jpgAccording to RootsKunta Kinte was born circa 1750 in Mandinka village of Juffure, in Gambia. He was raised in a Muslim family. In 1767, Kunta while he searched for wood to make a drum for his younger brother, four men chased him and took him captive. Haley traced record of ship The Lord Ligonier to Maryland where Kunta arrived in chain in America. Kunta Kinte kept name of his village and native name of Gambia River origin from Portuguese cambio for exchange or trade. Kunta Kinte’s life in village is similar to Masaka Africana.

Cambio is Kamby Bolongo native trade route like Naplis is Minneapolis. By 1600s large agricultural or commercial estates in Brazil needed more slaves. Portuguese slave traders of Gambia kidnapped Kunte. He traced his roots back to the Gambia. Kunte Family was: Omoro (father) and Binta (mother); Belle (wife); Kizzy (daughter); Chicken George (grandson). Kunte was born in c. 1750 in Juffure, The Gambia and died: c. 1822 (aged c.71–77); in the Spotsylvania County, Virginia. Despite attempt by the slave master to erode his name, Kunta Kinte held onto his memories passed on to his descendants written about in his life history book, Roots made into films.

Consider questions on the rights of cocoa farmers and conditions faced by producers. Concerns of safety or well being ignored by its sold to government as sole buyer. Western countries ensure West African cocoa grown is harvested to Belgium and G7 countries but these workers are not afforded equal rights.

GOD KNOWS YOU BY NAME

Moses no longer carried the burden of leading the people allowed Moses rest to let people God tells them to move or to stop.

God knows Moses and Moses knows God will do as HE said HE will do for Moses trusts who God knows Moses. 15696020670754183882991775581690.jpgThe LORD assured Moses HIS Presence will go with Israel and responded with these words in Exodus 33:17: “I will do this thing you spoke of you found grace and favour in My sight, I know you by name.” This profound statement and is confidence boosting for Moses under so much pressure from people. This truth from to Moses is significant in our lives. Leaders find people look up to them not God to settle problems. So may not seek answers in Bible for guidance look for others for advise them. God is needed despite angelic help for journey to help with challenges of life in Promised land. 15696016206507657032653170389037.jpgMoses said, “If You know my name and I find grace in Your sight be with us.

And  Isaiah 49:1-26 says Listen O coastlands, give attention people from far. God has called me from my mother’s womb and named me. He made my mouth like a sharp sword; in the shadow of HIS hand he hid me, made me a polished arrow in HIS quiver he hides me. God said, “You are God’s servant in whom Israel will be glorified.” I said, “I laboured in vain and spent my strength for nothing in vain its LORD God who will recompense me. So the LORD formed Isaiah from the womb to be his servant to bring Jacob back to HIM and Israel gathered to him. Isaiah is honoured in the eyes of the LORD and God is our strength in Jesus Name.

Promised eternal life in God in Christ require they show genuine remorse in appearance in anguish of souls at Mount Horeb. God is warning their stiff-neckedness results in punishment from God. In Isaiah 2:19-22 people hide in caves, holes, rocks in fear of the LORD’S GLORY and Majesty as HE shakes all earth. 20 That day people will cast silver, gold, idol gods worshipped to the moles and bats in caves. God told all Israel to take off jewelry ornaments by Mount Horeb in Exodus 33:6. Israelites told to strip themselves of their jewelry to stop wearing it due to their evil stiff neckedness that made God angry. God provided gold payments for their slave labour in Egypt but insolent dressed in luxury. God forced them to stop wearing gold and trinkets to be accountable for their evil sinful idol behaviours. Repent, God told told Moses they cried at the sad news. Remorse demure, sombre, silence signify sorrow, grief and regret. Luxury jewels, trinkets, ornaments are taken off so hairstyle kept simple, covered shaved in humility before God. Some walk bare foot or wear sandals in sackcloth to seek face of God in prayer. Penitence to God stripped of vanity excesses are laid bare enter HIS Presence in silence. It is deep reflection to seek God’s grace, mercy for forgiveness to search heart and soul in repentance to reconnect with Jehovah.15691434028886680607314834921558.jpgGod told Israel to God reminds them of the vital need for God’s mercy and love to thrive.

Isaiah 3:1 says the LORD God of hosts will take from Jerusalem, Judah and nations their food, bread and water. 2 Mighty man of war, judges, prophets, wise elders. 3 Captains of fifty of honourable men, counsellors, eloquent orators 4 Are ruled by childish princes and babies. 5 So people oppress one another and neighbours so children behave proudly against the honourable elders. 6 A man tells his brother to rule so the ruin is on their hand. 7 I SWEAR I WILL not heal. In MY HOUSE is no bread or clothing for ruler of the people. 8 Jerusalem is ruined and Judah is fallen by their tongue’s doings against God. They provoke the LORD’S eyes and HIS GLORY. 9 Their faces show evil witness against them, they declare their sin as Sodom, they hide it not. Woe to their souls their reward is evil. 10 Say to the righteous it is well to eat the fruit of your doing. 11 Woe wicked rewarded for evil actions. 12 MY people oppressed by children and women rule them.

The LORD God will expose their secret deeds. 18 The LORD will take away loud tinkling ornaments on their feet and cauls of hairdos, round tires like moon 19 And their neckchains, bracelets, mufflers. 20 Bonnets and the ornaments of legs, head bands, tablets, earrings 21 Rings and nose jewels. 22 Clothes, mantles, wimples and crisping pins 23 Glasses, fine linen, hoods, vail hats. 24 No sweet scent fragrant aroma but stinking torn clothes and baldness, and sackcloth instead of beauty. 25 Your men will fall by the sword and mighty in war. 26 Her gates lament and mourn as desolate sits on ground. In Revelation 6:15-17 the kings of the earth, princes, generals, rich, mighty, slave, free hide in caves of rocks, mountains. 16 They call mountains and rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the face of God who sits on the throne and from wrath of the Lamb. 17 The great day of wrath has come who can stand God? Revelation 6:15-17 says kings of earth, princes, generals, rich, mighty, slave or free hide in caves or rock of mountains. 16 They call on the mountain and rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the face of God who sits on the throne from wrath of the Lamb. 17 The great day of wrath has come who can stand God? Humble yourself in sadness or grief and sorrow. God says put off all ornaments until God decides what to do with Israel to move on as God instructed Moses. This God’s command was to a “stiff neck” people in time of anger against their rebellion. It does not mean Christians must never wear gold. Neither are ornaments to be a centre of focus for wrong reasons of a negative attention seeking behaviour. In 1 Timothy 2:9 he warns Church women to dress in moderation compared to the vulgar outlandish costumes to draw an attention of moral decadence. In 1 Peter 3:3 the problems of affluence in Church meant adornment outwardly arranging the hair, wearing gold putting on fine apparels became competition to outdo each other to show off even in giving. It  is still an issue as Peter is talking about modesty in dress and moderation in all things. Jewelry is good as God adorns His Bride with jewels in prophecy living in Golden heavenly city bedazzled with precious jewel in New Heaven and New earth freely given to all those in Christ.15691430577836522483842083837573.jpgDon’t go spending so much money, time preparing yourself with jewels and gold or evil beads to try to impress to seduce in the presence of God’s house. Evil is at the heart of the matter. Gold is good to Glorify God at the heart of worship into Church in His Presence but not fashion catwalk. God’s resources exploiting gold silver abuse not for the Christians living in the world of luxury decadence Peter warned of. In danger of lack of humility modesty extravagant adornment in the Church. A senseless vanity to show off is not modesty but focus on God in selfless service of Godly love actions. Bible says Christians be adorned in decent modest clothes in humility. Timothy says ladies in church adorn your heart.  I Timothy 2:9 says wear modest apparel and be properly covered. In moderation use simple braid hair, gold, pearls not a costly clothing to show off wealth. These passages confirm the notion of stripping off fine jewels and rich clothes in times of deep grief and humiliation in Micah 1:8. To wail and howl; strip in sackcloth or simple clothes to make wailing sound of mourning required by a sincere grief. In Numbers 31:50 some gave offering to the LORD gold articles, armlet bracelets, signet rings earrings, necklaces to make atonement before the LORD. 51 Moses and Eleazar the priest accepted gold, all crafted articles. 52 from commanders of thousands, commanders of hundreds so Moses and Eleazar presented gifts to the LORD weighed 16,750 shekels. 53 From soldier’s plunder. 54 Moses and Eleazar the priest took gold to tent of meeting as memorial of Israelites before the LORD.IMG-20190918-WA0014.jpgIMG-20190918-WA0010.jpg20190922_072843.jpg15688437892126007227081830922345.jpgGodly sorrow and mourning has a hope of eternal life and given precious jewels. Church is not a time for fashion parades to show off gold wealth. Or of changing clothes many times during sad funerals like a wedding feast. Costs thousands to those planning funeral to spend money after death but not in the lifetime. Deep grief or sorrow strips fineries of life in sadness for a season. God expects life to return to normal after the time of sorrow and grief. In 1 Samuel 19:24 the extreme deep devotional exercise of Saul under prophetic influence strips him bare before God. Israel is humbled by God. Ancient Jewish name יהוה of Jehovah’s Divine protection in a golden ornament used to make golden calf had consequence laying naked, defenceless. All ornaments or spiritual things of God commanded to lay off and to not wear symbols of Divine protection forfeited by transgression until after repentance. God said, “That I may know what to do to Israel” under God’s Divine protection shield is commanded to put aside. Many parted with ornaments put aside and later worn again. Lots of jewels, wives, daughters, sons of 600,000 men stripped to make golden calf. Rest of ornaments later used in Tabernacle furnishing so much people were asked to stop giving it became too much in Exodus 36:5-6. A lesson here is not to put confidence in gold wealth, riches but put confidence in God. Whoever lost gold or riches God restores 100 fold in this life and eternal life to come in heaven. Do not sell your soul to the devil in search of material things that will perish. In Jesus Name trust God to provide your needs and do  it be jealous or envious of other people. They may flourish and be rich but lost their souls to the devil and will go into hellfire recruited by satan and demons. 

GOD’S WRATH for golden calf

15690979064902713126790492251793.jpgA golden was calf made as Moses stayed on the mountain, it caused people to tell Aaron to, “Come, let us make gods to go before us. Moses who brought us out of Egypt, we don’t know what happened to him in Exodus 32:1. Instead of sending a search party to check on Moses ask for a god to replace the LORD God Elohim. So 2 Aaron said, “Take off the gold earrings your wives, sons, daughters wearing to bring it to me. 3 All the people took off the earrings so brought them to Aaron. 4 He took put into fire to make idol cast calf fashioned by a tool. They said, “This is god Israel which brought you out of Egypt.”5 Aaron built altar in front of the calf said, Tomorrow will be a festival to the LORD. 6 The next day people rose early to sacrifice burnt offerings and sat down to eat, drink, indulged in revelry. 15690854387152242805834355396970.jpgThe LORD said to Moses, Go down, because your people you brought from Egypt became corrupt. 8 They turned from command to make idol cast calf. They bow and sacrifice to it and said, These are your gods Israel which brought you from Egypt. 9 God told Moses they are stiff-necked people so MY anger burns against them to destroy them so I will make you a great nation.” 11 Moses pleads with God, “why should your anger burn against people you brought out of Egypt with great power and mighty hand? 12 The Egyptians will say, ‘Your evil intention brought them to kill them in the mountain to wipe them off the face of the earth. Stop your fierce anger don’t bring disaster on the people. 13 Remember your servants Abraham, Isaac and Israel, to whom you swore by your self: ‘I will make your descendants as numerous as stars in the sky to give your descendants all this land promised their inheritance forever.’14 God relents and did not bring on HIS people threats. 15 Moses went from mountain with two tablets of the covenant law inscribed on 16 Are tablets God wrote and engraved.
IMG-20190922-WA0001.jpg 17
 Joshua heard noise of shouting said to Moses, “There is sound of war in the camp.”18 Moses said: “Its not sound of victory its sound of singing.” 19 Moses by camp saw calf and dancing, his anger burned, threw tablets out of his hands, breaking them to pieces at the foot of mountain. He took calf, burnt it in fire, ground to powder mixed in water and made Israelites drink it. 21 Asks Aaron “What did people do to you to lead them into great sin? 22 Do not be angry my lord Aaron said, “You know people these prone to evil 23 They said, ‘Make gods to go before us. Moses who brought us out of Egypt, we don’t know what happened to him. 24 I told them bring gold jewelry I threw into fire to make calf.”25 Moses saw people running wild Aaron let them get out of control and a laughingstock to their enemies. Moses stood at entrance of the camp and said, “Whoever is for the LORD, come to me all Levites went to him. 27 This is what the LORD God of Israel says: ‘Each man strap sword to his side. Go in camps from one end to other killing, brother, friend and neighbours.”15690853861033695279721949296149.jpg 28 Levites did what Moses commanded so that day three thousand people died. 29 Moses said, “You are now set apart to the LORD today as you were against your own sons, brothers HE has blessed you this day.” 30 The next day Moses told people, “You committed a great sin go to the LORD to make atonement for your sin.”31 Moses went to the Lord and said, “What great sin people committed to make gods of gold. 32 Please forgive their sin if not, blot me out of book you have written.” 33The Lord replied to Moses, “Whoever has sinned against me I will blot out of my book. 34 Now go, lead the people to the place I spoke of, and my angel will go before you. However, when the time comes for me to punish, I will punish them for their sin.” 35 The Lord struck the people with plague because of what they did with the calf Aaron made. God of Israel freed them from their slavery in Egypt in Exodus 32:8 forgotten wants god made from their trinkets, jewelry, bangles borrowed in Egypt. 15690978052441768923771628213165.jpgKurtRose17566236432720200328_200622IMG-20190918-WA0013.jpgGod Elohim took Israel out of Egypt but idolatory of Egypt in them gold gift from God turned into idols. Replaced God and Moses their mediator with gold calf idol. Gave honour meant for God’s GLORY to objects they made. The gifts from Egypt from God turned into evil abomination. Ridiculous they turned gold gift into idol declared “this god brought them out of Egypt.” Israel is taken out Egypt but idol of Egypt is not taken out of them. Copied idols in Egypt against God Jehovah Nissi to have mercy on the ignorant mankind who trusts in pieces of their carved idol god of silver, bronze, stones, wood that had eyes but can’t see, eyes don’t hear, a feet that don’t walk.  God sets those who worship them like them OH Jesus have mercy and forgive them for they know not what they are doing in Jesus Name. Pray, repent, accept Jesus or go to hell in judgement wrath of God. Thank God for translating you from such evil kingdom of darkness in Christ into HIS KINGDOM MARVELOUS GLORIOUS LIGHT!!! Thank God the Creator for gifts God to Israel to worship Yahweh not idols. Our Creator Almighty God deserves your loyalty so be faithful to HIS Covenant. Be patient, wait for God’s timing unlike those who did not wait for Moses to return from Mount Sinai with 10 Commandments. God’s timing is not on terms, conditions scheduled by man who decides to take matters into their own understanding.  God’s High Priest Aaron feared people failed to remind them of God’s goodness forgot to seek monotheistic God’s face in prayer and so frustrated acted by their permissive freewill and their timetable. Forced God to quickly act as HE DID and sent Moses to their own destruction by death and plagues. Aaron tried to justify his reason he set up calf with an excuse the “people made him do it.” Aaron’s job depended on the direct instruction from God not from people who mislead him. To obey God than men not to make idols for sacrifice or feast uncalled for by God out of fear. Aaron has compromised but is spared by God for the sake of Moses to help carry burden of call God. IMG-20190921-WA0014.jpgGod Elohim Elohim saved the children of Israel through Moses and Aaron who spoke to Pharaoh. But people forgot God did great miracles in Egypt after Moses  was away for 40 days demands Aaron  “make gods to go before them.”So Aaron said took gold rings and he fashioned it into molten calf said “They said, these are your gods O Israel  who brought you from Egypt. So “Aaron built an altar and organised festival to celebrate god tomorrow.’ Fear of mob or doubt sets in so Aaron as a leader who should know better joined in. Moses returned from mountain shocked by their actions and broke the tablets of ten commandments. Aaron’s weak position compromised his faith so they behaved even worse after the calf was made. Wrong action Aaron took to please the crowd made it worse. Moses saw Aaron’s lack of their strong leadership and irresponsibility grinds the god calf. Moses asked him in Exodus 32:21 “Why he led people to sin? Moses angry they made idol at Sinai are told forbidden, worship it, credit it with the GLORY and HONOUR due to Elohim. Aaron’s answered, “the people prone to  evil in fear put gold, silver in fire made golden calf. Aaron said, “remove gold rings in ears of your wives children” in 32:2. Aaron ask Israelites to contribute gold for Tabernacle shortly after. Made a complete U turn Aaron used jewelry for God. “These are your gods, O Israel” in Exodus 32:8 shows ignorance after all the miracles in Egypt in Exodus 12:38.15690853396981651610688323950098.jpgMoses punished people involved killed by sword or died forced to drink water of ground golden calf, plagues, in 32:20-35. For the sake of Moses, Aaron spared by God made High Priest. And God told Moses in 32:7–8, “Go to your people you brought from Egypt made a molten calf. Moses in Exodus 28:1, pleads with God for helper God told Moses “Bring Aaron to serve Me.” God told Moses to, “bring him near.” Aaron, despite flaws chosen by God for job. Moses, Aaron had flaws too but God’s Divine Choice overruled Moses’ anger. So Aaron and Moses God permitted to enter Holy of Holies. God spoke to Moses and Aaron who told the Israelites “remove gold rings in the ears of your wives and children” in Exodus 32:2. Miracles and plagues witnessed by Israel that destroyed Egyptians by God soon forgotten by Israel. The idols gods of gold, silver, stones, statues, rocks or wood, rivers, etc. cannot compare with God Elohim. Romans 1:25 says, people changed truth of God into lie, worship and served the creature more than the Creator Elohim who is blessed for ever. 15690852998777617629643321381310.jpg
Psalm 115:5 says gods have mouths but cannot speak, eyes but cannot see. And  Psalm 135:16 Have mouths do not speak have eyes but do not see. Deuteronomy 4:28 says “They serve gods the works of man’s hands, wood, stone, neither see, hear, eat or smell. Daniel 5:23, you exalt yourself against the LORD of heaven, took vessels of HIS HOUSE you and your nobles, wives and concubines use to drink wine you praise gods of silver and gold, of bronze, iron, wood and stone, which do not see, hear or understand. YET God is One in whose hand your life breath is in, you do not GLORIFY HIM. So become like what they worship blind to Spirit of the Living God deaf to Word of God, dumb to the Everlating Gospel of Testimony of Jesus Christ, Revelation 5:1-14. People become like the idols they worship. What they adore is resembled but believers are to love God to conform to the Image of Christ with God. Antioch people recognised apostles and disciples being with Christ by imitating Him. 15690854132716197525446172792585.jpgIn Jeremiah 10:1-10 same instructions to all to hear the words the LORD spoke to the house of Israel and to all the nations 2 Thus says the LORD Learn not ways of heathens and be not dismayed at signs of heaven; for heathen are dismayed at them. 3 The customs of the people are vain, one cuts a tree out of the forest the work of the hands of the workman with an axe. 4 Decks it with silver and gold so ties it with nails and hammers to fix it not to move. 5 Like an upright palm tree speaks not, is carried because it cannot move. Be not afraid of them they cannot do evil or is it in them to do good 6 And there is none like Elohim O LORD. You art great and your Name is mighty God. 7 Who will not fear you O King of all the nations? For to you belongs all nations And among all the wise men of nations and in all the kingdoms there is none like you. 8 So altogether is a brutish and foolish doctrine of vanities. 9 The Silver spread plates is brought from Tarshish, gold from Uphaz, work of workmen and hands of foundering blue, purple is the clothing of all the work of cunning men. 10 But the LORD is the LORD God, HE is the Living God and Everlasting KING. At HIS wrath earth trembles so the nations are unable to abide like HE did to Egypt. IMG-20190921-WA0015.jpg15690979577412213509752473793311.jpgQueasyEllipticalBlowfish-size_restricted.gifJeroboam told people of Israel, “It is too much to go to Jerusalem to worship God so, Here are your gods O Israel, which brought you up from land of Egypt in 1 Kings 12:28. Divided kingdom period of Israel in 931-723 BC, Judah: 931-587, Jeroboam built Danite pagan altar high places of 1340-723 BC. Dan tests people through their idolatry in Israel. The sons of Dan set graven image and Jonathan son of Gershom son of Moses and sons priests to tribe Danites until day of captivity of the land in Judges 18:30. God tore Israel from house of David to make Jeroboam king he drove Israel from following the LORD to commit great sin. The sons of Israel walked in sins of Jeroboam so did not depart so God removed Israel from His sight. Israel was carried away into exile from their own land. Amos heard the LORD saying: “Strike the tops of the pillars so thresholds shake. Bring them down on heads of all the people; those left killed with the sword none will get escape. God sends earthquakes in Amos 1:1 destructive power to destroy temple and homes. Survivors of the earthquake killed by sword. The LORD’S fugitives to escape judgment no escape of avenging hand of the LORD. Dig to depths below, climb to heavens above brought down. Hides on top of Carmel is hunted down, seized, hides from MY eyes at bottom of sea but commands serpents to bite them so God finds them in grave, skies on Mt. Carmel, bottom of Mediterranean. God commands giant sea serpents to destroy Israel, all people who reject Christ Jesus.15691508974177443346729491138605.jpgActs 17:27 God wants all to seek HIM to reach out to find HIM HE is not far from any one of us. 27 For in HIM we live and move and have our being. 28 your poets say, ‘We are HIS offspring 29 as we are God’s offspring should not think of God in gold, silver, stone image designed by human skill 30 God overlooks ignorance but commands people to repent 31 God  sets day HE will judge world justice by the man HE appointed and given proof by raising Him from the dead.”32 When they heard about resurrection of dead some sneered but others said, “We want to hear you again on this subject 33 Paul left Council 34 Some people follow Paul, believed one is Dionysius a member of Areopagus and woman named Damaris and number of others. Israel’s golf calf of pagan heathen nation spiritually God says idols of gold or silver cannot save. Hosea 14:3 tells Israel not to depend on strength and support of foreign powers or people’s own abilities to make war so asks people “Assyria cannot save us; we will not mount warhorses.” God alone saves His people not by the means of conventional weapons. People to love each by other mutual understanding and respect not by dominance and power. God’s compassion delivers Judah not bow, sword, battle, horses or horsemen in Hosea 1:7. Racist divisive leaders self-destruct through hatred.15691513515824318622528750280201.jpgGod’s love is to Israel and nations is: the LORD loves you and keeps oath sworn to your ancestors. God brought you out with a mighty hand and redeemed you from land of slavery. The LORD God is faithful God, keeps Covenant of love to thousands of generations all who love and keep HIS commandments in Bible in Deuteronomy 7:8–9. God’s Wrath is to idol nations as Moses and Elijah warned to stop hopping between God and baal like Jezebel and Ahab. Wrath of God has consequences for all who cling to God’s creatures not Creator. So 3000 years ago God sent Moses and Elijah to confront nations to choose between idols and HIS Kingdom. Endtime those in Christ Jesus know Rapture will come to go to heaven safely with friends and family. The lost must accept Jesus as living sermon His consuming fire burns in our bones so idols cast down. Anything superseding Lordship of Christ gone, idols destroyed, fear gone. When they saw boldness of Peter and John known as uneducated men surprised, recognized they have been with Jesus in Acts 4:13. They look and sound like Jesus. Moses face shines with God on mountain. So whoever you are around reflect in your persona Bible says God is not mocked good manners is corrupted by evil idols so be careful to worship only Jehovah in Christ Jesus.
