He makes it a point that by faith Peter too could walk on water. This event is significant for a lesson in faith in this biblical account to prove Jesus did a miracle of walking on the water to convince His disciples that He was indeed the Son of God and not a ghost as they thought.

USES OF SALT FOR PRAYER IN BIBLE nota37316_imagen0_x5

The phrase ‘the salt of the earth’ from Bible, in Matthew 5:13 says you are the salt of the earth: but if salt loses savour how can it salt. Excellent meaning of the salt of earth by Jesus refers to value of salt in same way believers are valued by God. Salt is used as symbol of sacred sign in ancient Israel in Numbers 18:19 and 2 Chronicles 13:5 as a salt covenant of friendship so eating salt together is sign of friendship. Penalty for violating a salt a covenant was death. Salt cleans rivers to remove the toxic bitterness to restore life referenced in Scripture in 2 Kings 2:19-22 as prophet Elijah poured the salt into Jericho’s water springs. The water was detoxified and made pure once salt was released into it. Jesus refers to salt in Luke 14:34-35 about believer’s impact on the earth by His teachings in the Bible. Salt is important it paid wages of Roman army so word, ‘sal’ + ary = salary. Salt enhances food taste and is a preservative. Salt keeps roads safe in the winter against slippery roads and to prevent chaos on roads and pedestrians falling. Salt is used in saline treatments and salt is mixed with water to hydrate body fluid level to restore health by mouth or drip in veins into the body. Salt is sprinkled directly onto surfaces and with prayer to consecrate property dedicated to God to restore premises invaded by the evil spirit demons. Salt is sprinkled in rooms or across threshold or in other places to invoke God’s Divine protection cover. In time of Jesus salt is used to clean and to sanctify by special deliverance prayers in church. Salt is given to people before entering Catholic church for a baptism many times in a year in specific rites of cross traced on forehead, tasted blessed salt repeated often. Augustine blessed regularly with sign of Cross  seasoned with God’s salt.

OIL USED TO ANOINT/PRAY IN BIBLEAOBLOG-Surprising

Use of oil in Scripture is multi-faceted so involves anointing of priests or released to heal. God uses the rivers and the land involving elements for visual prayer in God’s perspective to redeem or heal in Leviticus 25:23-24 or 2 Chronicles 7:14. Premium expensive perfume in Song of Solomon 1:12; 4:13–14 and gospels’ show woman anointed Jesus in Mark 14:3; and John 12:3. Spikenard is a pure perfumery in King James Version but translations say “pure nard.” Spikenard has a strong, distinctive aroma essential oil quality that clings to skin and hair so continues to give off scent perfume for a longer time. Some have the medicinal properties seethed in herbs as special ingredients used depends on a purpose for it. Mary of Bethany broke alabaster jar of spikenard in John 12:3  to wash Jesus’ feet with the oil as her best offering to show appreciation of her love for Him. This jar of spikenard ointment was of high value but poured it out on Him. Her extravagant gift it to show the best gift is worthy of her Lord, so she was willing to give everything as act of worship seen in Numbers 18:29. In John 12:7 Jesus told Judas the oil gift offered by her is valuable gift anointing Son of God is the Ultimate Sacrifice for world’s sin in John 1:29; 2 Corinthians 5:12. Mary’s act of anointing Jesus’ feet is a form of worship. And anointing oil is mentioned 20 times in Scripture used in Old Testament to pour on the head of high priest and descendants. Sprinkled in tabernacle on furnishings to mark as holy and set apart to the LORD God in Exodus 25:6; Leviticus 8:30; Numbers 4:16. The special “holy, anointing oils,” are strictly forbidden from reproducing for personal use in Exodus 30:32-33. The recipe for anointing oil in Exodus 30:23-24 contains myrrh, cinnamon and other natural ingredients. Anointing oil used in Mark 6:13 by the disciples is to anoint the sick and heal them. In Mark 14:3-9, Church elders anoint sick with oil for healing. In Hebrews 1:8-9 Christ lasts forever anointed by God, oil of gladness and Holy Ghost fire sent on Pentecost. IMG_20180919_200245And the oil is a symbol of Holy Spirit in the Bible as in the parable of the wise and foolish virgins in Matthew 25:1-13. Christians anointed by the Holy Spirit are led into all Truth by God’s Grace and Comfort so anointing from Holy One of God makes you know God’s Truth in 1 John 2:20. In the Bible olive oil is used to light lamps in Leviticus 24:2; Exodus 27:20. Olive oil is used for anointing in Exodus 30:23 – 25 or part of grain offering in Leviticus 2:1–10. The kings are anointed with olive oil sign, chosen by God to rule in 1 Samuel 16:1. Olive oil is used to sanctify priests in Exodus 29:7 and tabernacle and all furnishings in Exodus 40:9. Olive oil used in cooking as trees grow in Israel in Deuteronomy 8:7–8 and people use it for butter or animal fats. So olive oil symbolize joy and health in Jeremiah 31:12; Hebrews 1:9. In time of judgment olive oil is said to fails in Joel 1:10. Modern churches are built literally like times of Jesus and have practical application using water, salt and oil to heal and deliver in Jesus Name. Believers use anointing from God through Holy Spirit, the same yesterday, today and forever in Jesus Name. Jesus and disciples ministered using water as token symbol from God accordingly to express their faith in the Name of Jesus. Depending on needs of each church the water, salt and oil is used to minister and to deliver in Jesus’ Mighty Name. Thank God in Jesus Name for these gifts used by all who believe in using them today. Even if your church does not use these items you can still be healed in Jesus Name by prayer of faith yourself or in agreement with others as one believer defeats a thousand, so two defeats ten thousand according to the wisdom of God. Some prayers in private closet answered as the corporate prayer depending on needs in Jesus Name. It is good to understand Biblical principles to educate yourself to study to answer those who ask questions concerning the use of water, salt and oil for prayers in the church today. The Holy guides each person to choose water, salt and oil as they prefer to use to minister in Jesus Name. Thanks and GLORY to God, Glory to Jesus for restoring mankind’s glory by forgiveness of sin so made whole again.

THRONES SEEN IN HEAVEN

throneDaniel 7:9-18 saw 9 THRONES in heaven and Ancient of days, GOD ALMIGHTY is sitting on HIS THRONE. God’s garment is white as snow, his hair on head like the pure wool: HIS THRONE is like the fiery flame, and HIS wheels as burning fire. 10 A fiery fire comes out near HIM and thousands of thousands minister to God. The books in heaven are opened. Apostle John saw heaven and thrones, and those who sat on thrones are the 24 elders described in Revelation 4:4. But Daniel made no mention of the elders as some think 24 elders is church mystery Old Testament saints in Ephesians 3:1-7. The Ancient of Days seated is Father GOD ALMIGHTY with God the Son Jesus. Father GOD’s white garments and white hair are the eternal characters of Father God. Daniel 7:13 distinguished between Ancient of Days and Son of Man Jesus, supports fact Ancient of Days is Father GOD not God the Son. Ancient of Days God’s appearance is glorious as prophet Daniel saw God Almighty so filled with ​awe as Daniel described his vision. “The Ancient of Days.” or  “ONE advanced in age or in days in Daniel 7:9,13, 22. God is advanced in age as “KING of eternity,” HIS existence stretches endlessly from the past forever into the future eternity in 1 Timothy 1:17;Jude 25. God’s eternal existence is infinite in wisdom as Bible associates age with wisdom seen in Job 12:12. Eternal existence is incomparably wise God beyond human understanding says Romans 11:33, 34. Ancient of Days “sat down for judgment in Daniel 7:10, 22, 26 in the vision to judge nations of the earth in Daniel’s vision of beasts in Daniel 7:1-8. HIS clothing is white like snow, and hair of HIS head like wool.” White symbol of righteousness of purity and robe of snow whiteness means that God’s judgments are righteous and wise. merits deepest trust and respect so fair. Thousand thousands ministering to HIM, ten thousand times ten thousand stand right before HIM as heavenly ministers. The Bible says angels of God’s minister in Psalm 104:4 so countless hundreds of millions, God’s angels “carrying out HIS word”doing his will in Psalm 103:20, 21. God’s vast heavenly army is organized and busy over aeons of time. Ancient of Day’s judgments are righteous, and his wisdom trustworthy as the all-wise God. God is in HIS dwelling place in the third heaven shows HIS or Jesus’ appearance to prophets or Holy fathers in various forms depends on man’s understanding of signs of HIS PRESENCE. HIS THRONE has fiery flame: of brilliant splendour and fierce heat of judgment. The lava-like in stream of fire pours from Throne like river of vast destructive power. So Isaiah 66:15-15 says judgment of God is of fire. The LORD God will come with fire with His chariots, like whirlwind render His anger with fury and His rebuke with flames of fire. For by fire by His sword the LORD will judge all flesh and slain of the LORD is many. Wheel on THRONE is as eastern royal throne wheel represent endless activity of God. Thousands and thousands minister as innumerable angels around the THRONE of God. Ten thousands times ten thousands stand before HIM people stand before God in judgment, Books open, Bible describes BOOKS before God like: Book of living in Psalm 69:28. Book of remembrance in Malachi 3:16Book of Life in Philippians 4:3 and again in Revelation 3:5; 13:8; 17:8; 20:12, 15;21:27 and 22:19. Daniel 7: 11-14 talks of ‘horn’ conquered by the Son of Man. Isaiah saw God in the year King Uzziah’s death Sitting on THRONE, lofty, exalted, with train of HIS robe filling the temple. In Isaiah 6:1 his eyes see the KING, Yahweh of hosts in Isaiah 6:5. He heard Voice of Yahweh, saying, “Whom shall I send and who will go for Us?” He said, Here am I. Send me!”in Isaiah 6:8. Isaiah said it because Isaiah saw GOD’S GLORY so spoke of HIM and Christ in John 12:41. Christ is Glorified, with the Glory He had before creation John 17:5 for men to believe in Jesus as the Saviour of the world. establishing-shot-with-Jesus-for-live-classes-768x320Isaiah on belief in Jesus Him” in John 12:41 showd Jesus glorified in John 17 : 16. Son of Man glorified 17:23 so Father, GOD GLORIFIES HIS NAME Glorifying Jesus in 17:2 encourages those who did not believing in Christ 17:37 that LORD, GOD empowered Jesus to be believed by report of testimonies in 17:38. The arm of the LORD revealed in 17:38 in Christ so these things Isaiah said because he saw GOD’s GLORY and Christ’s Glory so spoke of heaven. The rulers believed in Him 17:42 so Jesus cried out and said He who believes in Me in 17:44 he who sees Me sees Father God who sent Me 17:45. In Acts 7:55–56; Romans 8:34; Ephesians 1:20; Colossians 3:1; Hebrews 1:3, Christ is Seated on His Throne at RIGHT Hand of God makes intercession for believers. In Acts 7:55 Stephen, full of Holy Spirit, looked to heaven saw God’s GLORY and Jesus standing at RIGHT Hand of God. John 12 says Isaiah saw GOD’S GLORY and Glory of Jesus in Isaiah 6. And God approved Jesus to represent Yahweh on the earth. John 12:41 says Isaiah saw Father GOD’S GLORY and Jesus Glory is as Daniel saw God and Son of Man. So Ezekiel 1:26–28 also talks of seeing God on THRONE 26 above firmament over head on HIS THRONE; of appearance as sapphire stone: and on the likeness of the THRONE is likeness of appearance of a MAN on it. 27 I saw colour of amber appearance of fire roundabout it, from HIS loins upward and downward, I saw fire and brightness round about. 28 And There appearance of rainbow like cloud in day of rain brightness roundabout in appearance of LORD God fell on face as heard Voice speak. Daniel watched the sound of pompous words horn was speaking. He watched until the beast is slain destroyed in burning flame. Rest of beast’s dominion taken away but their lives prolonged for a season and time. Daniel watched in the night vision saw One like Son of Man Jesus Coming in clouds of heaven! He came to Ancient of Days, they brought Him near HIM. Hebrew n-ʼa·dhamʹ is son of mankind, human, earthly son in Psalm 80:17; 146:3; Jeremiah 49:18, 33 a male in Numbers 23:19; Job 35:8; Jeremiah 50:40 Psalm 8:4; Isaiah 51:12; 56:2 Psalm 144:3 son of mortal man ben-ʼenohshʹ in Aramaic barʼenashʹ in Daniel 7:13. Greek hui·osʹ tou an·throʹpou, generic word for man anʹthro·pos Matthew 16:27. Book of Ezekiel, over 90 times God calls prophet “son of man” in Ezekiel 2:1, 3, 6, 8, used as prophet is human spokesman Source of his message is from Most High God, applied to prophet Daniel in Daniel 8:17. Christ Jesus, “the Son of Man” Gospel referred to in Matthew 8:20; 9:6; 10:23 occurs in Acts 7:56; Hebrews 2:6; and Revelation 1:13; 14:14Jesus’ God’s Son ‘became flesh’ in John 1:14), ‘came out of a woman’ through conception birth by Jewish virgin Mary in Galatians 4:4; Luke 1:34-36 son of man by His human mother in 1 John 4:2, 3; 2 John 7. Jesus is crowned with Glory, splendour by His Father, who resurrects Him in Hebrews  2:8, 9; Hebrews 2:14; Philippians  2:5-9. The “Son of man,” identifies Jesus Christ as Kinsman of mankind with power to redeem them bondage to sin and death, and Avenger of blood in Leviticus 25:48, 49; Numbers 35:1-29. Jesus the “Son of David” in Matthew 1:1; 9:27 is Heir of Kingdom Covenant fulfilled in David’s line by birth. The “Son of God’s” Divine origin not sinner, second Adam perfect from God fully righteous standing with God says Matthew 16:13-17The Sign of the Son of man is prophecy recorded at Daniel 7:13, 14 in the vision, Daniel saw “someone like a son of man” coming in clouds of heaven, gained access to “the Ancient of Days,” granted to “rule the peoples, national groups and languages all serve His Kingdom. Vision in Daniel 7:18, 22,27 speaks of “Holy ones of God” taking possession of God’s Kingdom to the “son of man” with Saints of God as a people glorified with people of Israel.’ free-bible-studies-online-great-white-throne-judgementJesus, God’s anointed King in ‘Covenant with His followers in His Kingdom rule as kings and priests under His Headship and God’s Authority in Luke 22:28-30; Revelations 5:9, 10; 20:4-6 by Sovereign God in Revelations 2:26, 27; 3:21Jesus’ the Son of God said you will see Son of man sitting at the RIGHT Hand of power and coming with the clouds of heaven in Matthew 14:61,62; Matthew 26:63, 64. Prophecy of coming of Son of man into PRESENCE of Ancient of Days, God is the Messiah Christ in Daniel 7:13. The literal fulfillment of prophecy resurrection to Spirit life, shows Jesus Christ, sacrificing His human nature ransom for mankind, retains Messianic “Son of man” in His heavenly position. Jesus’ told high priest Coming of Son of man in Psalm 110 is it applied to Him in Matthew 22:42-45. So this does Hebrews 10:12, 13, reveals that a waiting period for Jesus Christ before His Father would sends Him to subdue His enemies. Prophecy of Daniel 7:13, 14 time of Jesus’ resurrection, ascension to heaven, authorized by God will take action in Kingly Authority. The ‘Coming of Son of man to the Ancient of Days,’ in time presented at Revelation 12:5-10, as man-child is brought to God’s THRONE. Matthew 24:30 and Luke 21:27 on Jesus’ sign of the Son of man” mention angels in Bible associated with God’s Divine judgment of wicked humans Matthews 24:29;Luke 21:25, 26; Isaiah 13:9, 10 Joel 2:30, 31. All the tribes of earth will see the Son of man Coming on the clouds of heaven with Power and Great Glory so lament in fear in hearts of humans who do not conform to God’s WILL. Visions in Revelation 17:12-14;19:11-21 show an exercise of full Regal Power by Messiah King over “peoples, national groups and languages in (Daniel 7:14), is same “son of man” in Revelation 14:14 represents Jesus described in Revelation 1:13. The ‘Son of man’s Coming on Clouds’ seen by “every eye” in Matthew 24:30.and Revelations 1:7  Jesus given Dominion, Glory, Kingdom all people, nations, languages serve Him. His Dominion is an everlasting Dominion so not pass away, His Kingdom THE ONE CHOSEN by God shall not be destroyed. So they had their dominion taken away as the transition of human dominion on earth becomes Divine Dominion. Will happen as the Son of Man Comes and exercises Dominion over the earth to succeed the reign of the fourth beast. The sound of pompous words “little horn” of fourth beast speaks are final human dictator antiChrist boastful, blasphemous speech in Revelation 13:5-6 in the Bible. This is government or system of various beasts Daniel told King about with a different meaning: Nazi Germany, other tyrants or Catholic church. So Daniel watched until beast slain so rest of beasts had dominion taken away given to Jesus. Fourth beast destroyed others continue without dominion as Jesus will Reign. jezus-christusJesus will sets up His Kingdom, empire after antiChrist completely crushed but some nations continue in Millennium. One like the Son of Man, Coming with clouds of heaven is Son of Man Jesus, used more than 80 times in four Gospel. He receives all dominion held by beasts Reigns permanently. His everlasting dominion shall not pass away. Reign of Jesus first lasting 1,000 years extends permanently so Jesus rules over earth before it is remade so satan bound for 1,000 years. In Daniel 7:15-16 his vision requests for understanding. Daniel, is grieved in his spirit within his body and visions of his head troubled him. He stood by an angel and asked him the truth of all this. He told him and made known interpretation of these things. Daniel grieved in spirit about what he saw so was troubled by lack of understanding. Grieved in spirit in body shows spirit  dwells in the body joined to God in Spirit more important than the body says 1 Timothy 4:8. The state of the body has effect on state of the spirit. God put HIS SPIRIT breath in mankind to live so no Spirit no life. 2 Corinthians 5:5 says the Spirit of God in man is absent from God and the spirit absent from the body is present with God in heaven. Daniel is told in 7:17-18 the vision is of four kings conquered by God and their kingdoms given to the people of God. Those great four beasts, are four kings arising out of earth. “But Saints of the Most High receive these kingdom to possess Kingdom forever, forever and ever.” The four kings arise out of earth. Dream shows Nebuchadnezzar’s vision in Daniel 2 of four empires succeeded by Kingdom of God. Daniel’s vision saw kingdoms from God’s perspective not man’s. Daniel told Nebuchadnezzar of present plus future world empires a stately noble statue of man. God showed them as the ferocious wild animals who devour and conquer without conscience. But God demolishes them and takes back HIS Kingdom from mankind. Jesus the Lion of the Tribe of Judah in Revelation 5:5 is Lamb of God in Revelation 5:5-6 and 5:8-10. Saints of the Most High receive the Kingdom as the day of the fourth beast is over, God’s people receive the Kingdom of GodSo restoration of God’s Reign and Rule on earth will literally fulfilled as prophecy of ten horns and the little horn in Jesus. Saints shall receive Kingdom of God at the return of Jesus to earth from Israel. IMG_20180414_122446God has given Dominion, Glory, and HIS Kingdom, all people, nations, languages, will serve God in Christ. His Dominon is everlasting dominion so shall not pass away His kingdom will not be destroyed but stand forever and forever. Daniel is grieved in spirit in his body, and visions in his head troubled him. But the saints of the most High shall take the kingdom, and possess the kingdom forever and forever and ever in Jesus. These events unfold as transition takes place globally to restore God’s Throne to Jesus on the earth as promised to King David. God Is Seen in HIS HOLY Temple in the year King Uzziah died, sitting on THRONE lofty and lifted up and HIS skirts filling the temple in Isaiah 6:1 in the year 778 B.C.E. 2 Uzziah’s reign of 52 years as king of Judah was a success. Doing what “was right in God’s eyes,” he enjoyed God’s backing of army and built agricultural ventures. Due to his success was haughty, “acted unfaithfully against God in the temple burn incense so this presumptuous act and his rage against priests who censured him, Uzziah died a leper in 2 Chronicles 26:3-22. About this time Isaiah started his prophetic service. Isaiah sees God in a vision with his physical eyes clearly in a vision as an actual sighting of ALMIGHTY looks like. Saw Creator God in awesome sight. Sitting on lofty THRONE, symbolizes HIS everlasting KINGSHIP, Judge, Universal Ruler and Source of all governments on earth. HIS long robe flows fills temple as Isaiah’s call prophetic service magnifies LORD God’s Sovereign power of justice seen God’s holiness. 4 Isaiah description of GOD’S physical appearance in vision like visions by Ezekiel, Daniel, and John sees heaven in Ezekiel 1:26-28; In Daniel 7:9, 10; Revelation 4:2, 3 vision describe GOD’S PRESENCE and plan for earth so GOD looks like Man seen in spirit realm vision convey Revelation 1:1 as Isaiah’s sees God’s real appearance to confirm Isaiah saw heaven like Jesus in Book of John. Vision shows Isaiah, God’s HOLY Temple HOLY judgment are fair, pure. jericho-penilla-seraphsSeraphs hide faces and feet 5 Isaiah said “Seraphs stand above each has six wings with two covering face and two kept feet covered, two to fly about. Isaiah 6:2 is the only place in the Bible mentioning seraph angelic creatures in God’s service high in privilege, honour surround God’s THRONE and occupy a position in all humility and modesty. In PRESENCE of heavenly Sovereign cover face with one set of wings in reverence of Holiness cover the feet with other set. Universal Sovereign God’s seraphs focus on GOD’S PERSONAL GLORY. “Seraphs” are “fiery burning radiating brightness so hide face in GOD’S GREATER GLORY Brightly. 6 Seraphs use third set of wings to fly, hover or stand. In Deuteronomy 31:15, wait on GOD obediently serve so Seraphs declare God’s holiness 7 ‘HOLY, HOLY, HOLY is Jehovah of armies the fullness of all earth is HIS GLORY” in Isaiah 6:3. Their assignment is to see to HIS GLORY is acknowledged in universe and on earth. HIS GLORY is seen in all things HE created to be discerned by all earth’s inhabitants. In Numbers 14:21; Psalm 19:1-3;Habakkuk 2:14, threefold, “HOLY, HOLY, HOLY,” is the evidence of Trinity emphasizing of GOD’S Holiness. in Revelation 4:8. Other angels near God THRONE sing melodious songs repeated to declare GOD’S Holiness and GLORY to set example to people. Heard The Voice of ONE calling, as HOUSE gradually filled with smoke in Isaiah 6:4. In the Bible, smoke or a cloud provides visible evidence of God’s PRESENCE in Exodus 19:18; 40:34, 35; 1 Kings 8:10, 11; and in Revelation 15:5-8 denotes GOD GLORY. It is in scene during vision Isaiah feels unworthy. 9 affecting Isaiah to say ‘Woe is me man unclean in lips with people of clean lips dwelling in heaven, my eyes have seen GOD KING of armies HIMSELF in Isaiah 6:5. Isaiah, Daniel and John saw GOD’S PRESENCE and so approved for special commission from HIM unlike Uzziah in 1 Kings 7:48-50. Prophet Isaiah didn’t ignore priesthood or trespass in temple, sees a vision and honoured with direct commission from God. The seraphs do not look upon the enthroned LORD of HIS HOLY Temple. IMG_20180917_160446Isaiah is allowed in vision to look upon the KING, God of armies!”10 Isaiah felt dreadful in vision in contrast to GOD’S Holiness and sinfulness felt unclean. So feared he will die says Exodus 33:20. He heard seraph praise God with clean lips but his unclean lip and people’s lip as a servant must reflect the Holiness of God in 1 Peter 1:15, 16. Isaiah the spokesman for GOD saw the Glorious HOLY KING in heaven. 11 So one seraphs flew and in his hands a glowing coal taken with tongs from Altar touched mouth to say: ‘Look! This touched your lips so all error and sin atoned for in Isaiah 6:6,7. In symbolic sense, fire’s purifying power glowing coal from HOLY fire of Altar to Isaiah’s lips to receive GOD’s Favour and a commission. Today we are redeemed by Jesus’ ransom of His life to receive God’s Favour in prayer in Jesus BLOOD in 2 Corinthians 5:18, 21; 1 John 4:10. It is 13 Isaiah who heard Voice of GOD saying: ‘Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?’ And said: ‘Here I am! Send me in Isaiah 6:8 in response Isaiah God’s servant messenger include  HIS Only begotten Son of man Jesus so told God said, “Let us make man in our own image.” in Genesis 1:26; Proverbs 8:30, 31. In heaven Only begotten Son Jesus dwells so became flesh among us in John 1:14Isaiah response to God’s call is example set for us. 14 Isaiah did not hesitate so responds to the message: “Here I am! Send me.” His willing spirit is an example for all of God’s servant in the great commission to preach ‘Good News of kingdom in all inhabited earth.’ in Matthew 24:14. Isaiah, faithfully stick to assignment to accomplish “witness to all nations.” As Isaiah did, God is highest authority to say:“Go, and say to this people, ‘Hear again and again, men, who do not understand; or see again and again but do not get knowledge.’ heart of people or ears unresponsive their eyes together may not see with eyes and their ears may not hear or own heart may not understand and may not turn back to get healing for themselves in Isaiah 6:9, 10. Glorified body of Jesus meets disciplesThomas doubted as Isaiah’s own people did not respond to Message no matter how faithfully Isaiah fulfilled his task. 16 The people Isaiah speaks to again and again did not accept the Gospel to gain understanding stubborn, unresponsive blind, deaf spiritually. Isaiah lets people show they do not understand to prove they closed their minds and hearts to God’s Message. Many people refused to listen to GOD’S GOOD News of a Coming Kingdom of God. Isaiah asks, How long 17“And God said: ‘Until cities crash in ruins, without inhabitants, houses be man, and ground itself is ruined into desolation removed men to far away deserted condition in midst of land says Isaiah 6:11, 12. People’s spiritual state continues as long as God’s NAME is dishonoured on earth. In Psalm 74:9-11 Isaiah’s prophecy was not completely fulfilled in his time but 18 continues in the consequence of disobedience of God covenant fulfilled in Leviticus 26:21-33; Deuteronomy 28:49-68. The nations are ruined people exiled land lies desolate. Isaiah didn’t live to see the destruction of Jerusalem and temple by Babylonian army in 607 B.C.E. He prophesied over 40 years so continued into reign of King Uzziah’s great-grandson Hezekiah. And Isaiah faithfully kept commission until he died and more than 100 years later a national disaster occurs. 19. The nations fell. 19 Destruction left Judah in “ruin in a desolation” but not hopeless in 2 Kings 25:1-26. God assured Isaiah: “There will be a tenth, again as burning big tree stump Holy seed from it in Isaiah 6 : 13. “A tenth, holy seed,” remains, a holy remnant found in his people. Although nation experienced a repeated a stump of symbolic tree of Israel remains seed, or offspring, Holy to God to sprout and tree regrown in Job 14:7-9; Daniel 4:26. 20 The words of prophecy seventy years after land of Judah desolated, God kept remnant from exile in Babylon, rebuilt temple and the city, and restored true worship in the land. This restoration of Jews to God-given homeland is a second fulfillment of prophecy God gave Isaiah says Ezra 1:1-421-23. Isaiah’s prophecy in first century fulfillment of ‘Holy seed’ in the first century, preserved.pictures-of-jesus-greg-olson-door (1)21 Isaiah’s prophetic Seed Messiah Jesus Christ came 800 years later in Isaiah 8 : 18; 61:1, 2; Luke 4:16-21; and Hebrews 2: 13, 14 Though GREATER than Isaiah, Jesus is sent by Heavenly Father, said: “Look I Am Come to do Father’s WILL in Hebrews 10:5-9; Psalm 40:6-822 Jesus faithfully worked but met reaction. Jews in Jesus’ day did not willingly accept His message like prophet Isaiah preached in Isaiah 1:4. Jesus granted understanding of secrets of Kingdom of heaven. Some look in vain, hear in vain get no sense of it. The heart of people unreceptive shut eyes do not see or hear with ears to turn hearts to heal them says Matthew 13:10, 11, 13-15; Mark 4:10-12; Luke 8:9, 10. So 23 quoting Isaiah, Jesus shows prophecy fulfillment in His day. The people had a heart like Jews in Isaiah’s days so blind and deaf to His Message so destroyed in Matthew 23:35-38;24:1,2. Roman forces under General Titus against Jerusalem in 70 C.E. demolished city and temple. Some listened to Jesus and become His disciples are happy in Matthew 13:16-23, 51 but should flee to mountains if army attacks them in Luke 21:20-22. So Holy seed by faith spiritual nation God Israel saved in Galatians 6:16. Isaiah’s prophecy, 24 About 60 C.E. apostle Paul in Rome arranged meeting with Jews and others concerning Kingdom of God many not accept his message so Paul in fulfillment of Isaiah’s prophecy in Acts 28:17-27; Isaiah 6:9, 10. Jesus’ disciples carried out commission just like Isaiah. In 2 Corinthians 12:1-10 Paul speaks of himself in third person giving personal testimony of time caught up into third heaven. It happened 14 years counting back to study Book of Acts it took place on first missionary journey as stoned at Lystra, left for dead. The LORD caught him up into third heaven and gave him glimpse but not to share all details. Paul included this first few verses speaking of his own personal experience of God caught up in vision of what it means to be in heaven with the Lord. Verse 1-10 on third heaven with thorn in the flesh had a heavenly experience yet endured all difficulties. High spiritual exaltation but suffered satanic attacks. God is still in HIS HOLY Temple and in Malachi 3:1 as Isaiah says: “Here I am! Send me to warn of imminent end of things Jesus wants people to open eyes and ears to see and to hear to be saved in Matthew 7:13, 14. Happy are all who listen so their hearts get healed in​ Isaiah 6:8, 10. GLORY to God for His Mercy and Grace in Jesus Name.

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: 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

2 Samuel 12:15-17 To Save Lives

15 Nathan went home, the LORD struck the child Uriah’s wife had with David so he became ill. 16 David pleads with God for the child. He fasted, spent nights in sackcloth on the ground. 17 The elders of his household stood beside him to get him up from the ground, but he refused, and did not eat any food with them.

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.

Ezra 8:21-23 For Travel Mercy

21 By Ahava river, I proclaimed a fast, to humble ourselves before God and ask HIM for a safe journey for us and our children, with all our possessions. 22  I did not ask the king for soldiers and his horsemen to protect us from enemies on the road, because told the king, “The gracious hand of our God is on all those who look to him, but his great anger is against all who forsake him.” 23 So we fasted and petitioned our God on this, and he answered our prayer.

Jonah 3:5-9 To Stop God’s Anger

5 The Ninevites believed God. A fast was proclaimed, and all of them, from the greatest to the least, put on sackcloth. 6 When Jonah’s warning reached the king of Nineveh he rose from throne, took off his royal robes, covered himself with sackcloth and sat down in the dust. 7 This is the proclamation he issued in Nineveh: “By the decree of the king and his nobles: Do not let people or animals, herds or flocks, taste anything; do not let them eat or drink. 8 But let people and animals be covered with sackcloth. Let everyone call urgently on God. Let them give up their evil ways and their violence. 9 Who knows? God may relent with compassion turn from his fierce anger so we will not perish.”1312816044_1101-300x298

Isaiah 58:3-7 Be Kind to People

3 ‘Why did we fast,’ they say and not yet seen result? We humbled ourselves, did you notice?’ “On the day of fasting, you do as you please, exploit your workers. 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. Others seem to get away with it but years later God judges 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.


HAPPIER IN BIGGER HOUSE?

isbUK is said experiencing a dire shortage of living space, but does having more room necessarily make people more content? It is common to hear concerns about pokey new-builds and sky-high rents forcing people into ever smaller homes. But the reality is that living spaces in England and Wales are larger than ever, with the average home increasing from 88 to 90 square metres between 2004 and 2016. Instead, the issue is distribution of space is more unequal. The owner occupiers has lots of space compared with young renters sharing a home with several others. In 2017, about 28% of UK households contained one person, up from 17% in 1971. But the proportion of families and individuals sharing private rented housing has almost tripled since 1992 to 6.6%, according toresearch by the Resolution Foundation think tank. So, does more space always mean happier occupants, or is there a cut-off point?Housing in numbers datapic

Status and neighbours

A London-based colleague recently told me about her aunt coming to visit her from Hong Kong. Upon seeing her shoe-box bedroom, she was filled not with pity, but with envy. The aunt had grown up seven people to one room, and thought this living arrangement the height of luxury. This illustrates how the level of space that we expect or aspire to can depend on what we are used to. Even after people move to a bigger house, it may not take long for them to start to feel like they don’t have enough. Surveying almost 1,000 people who chose to upsize their home, my research found that housing satisfaction initially increased after a move by 1.2 points on a seven-point scale. But within three years, this rise had diminished by about 30% as people’s space expectations increased.Chart showing housing satisfaction rises before a house move before diminishing

You might think that people with very big houses would be more satisfied with their property. Found increase beyond four rooms per person resulted in no uplift in housing satisfaction at all. This category is likely to include some older people who would like a smaller space but are reluctant to leave the family home. Even for the average household, more space may not necessarily lead to more happiness. Our space expectations are conditioned by where lived before, but by neighbours. Because house size is status symbol feels worse off if other people get larger houses. A recent US study found increase in size of largest 10% of superstar houses had significant negative effect on their neighbours, Woman prepares food with her daughterThose people who moved into a bigger home, previous surveys have suggested people would be prepared to have less living space overall if it meant less than others. Rising cost of ‘normal’ is not to say everyone is consciously competing with their neighbours over who has the biggest house. Most concern of a house size may stem from underlying desire to fit in to do things considered “normal.”  This could be having dinner around the family table or watching TV on the sofa which requires what is considered to be a “normal” level of living space. If home sizes increase then so does the amount of space we feel like we need just to keep up. If all have space for home gym having friends round for a workout could well become as normal as having them round for dinner.Couple looking at big houseCounting the costs as a nation, do not seem to be getting any happier with our housing, even though living space and housing conditions have improved for many people. The US-based study draws similar conclusions. It suggests people living in a detached house, satisfaction stayed the same since the 1980s as the amount of space per person has grown by about 40%, to more than 900 square feet. People moving into bigger homes comes with costs. Spending more on housing means people incurring more mortgage debt, working longer hours, or commuting longer distance, building more homes has significant irreversible environmental costs. An overwhelming case is to provide genuinely affordable housing for those suffering in cramped, unaffordable living conditions. Beyond this increase is if average living spaces improve wellbeing society is debated. This analysis piece was commissioned by the BBC from an expert working for an outside organisation. Dr Chris Foye is knowledge exchange associate with the University of Glasgow, UK Collaborative Centre for Housing Evidence. His role is building relationships between housing researchers, policymakers, practitioners and residents. 

GET RELEVANT EDUCATION

Pursuit of academic excellence within the ability of every child is important to reinforce need to help children get their priority right. As individual differences impact talents and abilities it means the child must be guided at own pace to be the best they can be. So children thrive right from onset of education or bloom later like bamboo shoots with delayed growth spurt. These difference in levels of achievements can frustrate children and parents who finds school difficult to cope with. The lack of support to help slow learners or gifted children causes them to implode, misbehave or disrupt the class. Compulsory education society has not succeeded in personally tailored education still. Therefore children find it extremely hard to adapt or adjust to the impossible standard imposed on the children. Worst of all is the unnecessary exams forced on children to grade them on league tables to prove which schools are the best in the country. However, a child in a privileged class private school is sitting exact exams with the deprived in society. This pressure compels some of those children unable to do so well to look for ways out of difficult impossible challenges they face daily in school. And some experience difficult circumstances at home, bereaved, or a divorced family, supporting sick or disabled parents or it is domestic or physical abuse, violence. With such backgrounds in some cases a child faces these extreme problems of a combination of all at the same time. On other occasions the language difficulties also compounds these problems. And its still expected of a child to be A* pupil or student in college and university later. These complex problems of the children can include poverty and starvation if in a deprived community but required to do well. Indeed some do well but most of the children facing these challenges cause them to react by rebelling with peers in similar situations for support. At times some parents are too busy and overwhelmed to realise what is going on a child’s lives before it is too late to help them. Meanwhile children’s look and appearance has become a welcome diversion for not doing so well. This is a major trend whereby their competitive urge to be the best dressed in the most expensive  clothing brands and hair dos become the centre of focus. To belong to a peer group, their friends will not play or interact with them if the appearance is not deemed fit to be in their group. It is a serious issue causing fights and the attacks of those beaten for dressing less or more than peer group. Children are attacked for trainers, iphones, iPads or designer handbags or clothes. Most of the children dress better those working hard footing the bill for their designer wears. To fuel this hierarchy status turf wars, most resort to drug selling and a lifestyle beyond their means. Pressure to conform means whatever means can be used to accomplish demands is used.IMG_20180607_181814 Not focussing on home work to keep up with their academic education means unachievable grades and poor results. The cycle is repeated after not achieving good grades becomes more frustrated with career options. Due to their tastes and expensive lifestyle some find it hard to work a daily job or keep up with stable employment. Some are now used earning thousands of dollars in the streets so continue that way. But it gets complicated as they face threats of attacks of turf wars and gang fights. It is interesting the millennial generation with every abundant material wealth in modern times beyond past generations are also the most unhappy, stressed and miserable ones. On top of all these is an addiction to games, drugs, alcohol and a risk taking dare-devil lifestyle cutting short-lived in their prime. The children have becomes victims of superabundant society more interested in profits or the value of property than emotional needs of these children. Year on year statistics show things are getting worse for these generation trapped in cycle of external appearance and look more than content of their character. Superficial egotistic fleeting looks and clothing labels seems more important to them than priceless God-given natural life. Superabundance around lure them to think only external material things and looks count most. In the process create anger, envy, jealousy, hatred and fights some willing to kill peers for. And yet the root of this problem is not addressed to guide these children to find fulfillment in real value of life preservation. Pressure to get rich quick to get the most expensive gadgets, games and physical looks overrule desire to study hard. Most find academic work too frustrating but remain in school as the las demands. So disturb the class or attack dedicated children working hard and excelling. The solution is not simple but pressure to attain league tables is a part of the cause of frustrations of some those children. In addition, the families have very high expectations of them so also pressurize them to work harder. If a child becomes overwhelmed, look for support from friends and peers to help them rather confide in parents. So the cycle of frustration, is numbed by TV watching, games or playing out with the friends. They cannot stay at home alone so go out on the streets among the drug dealers and grooming paedophiles who take advantage of their naivety. Is there any way educational purpose becomes imparting knowledge to children to gain information relevant to their lives and not merely business for exam boards to grade them on the exam league tables. There is direct connection between the compulsory pressure knowledge power uses to control people. Millions are even more frustrated after university when they realise not many human jobs are available to do. With higher standard of living and surmounting debts now face even more challenging circumstances after graduation. These global millineal generation cannot farm, eat from home-grown produce or survive with money spent several a day. It is a generation revolving around money and material things while tons of food and clothing are thrown away daily by privileged. It sends wrong message about capitalism as acquisition of global resources for a few. Children watch and yearn for such luxury goods at their doorsteps so often above their means. They crave their cut in these illusive wealth they see but do not attain despite academic success. It is gets worse as the system set up frustrate them to turn on each other by hanging around others than value their families.IMG_20180607_181942 Parents under pressure doing several jobs need to set time aside each night to be with their children and talk to them. The support of families in the lives of the children makes a great deal of difference. Sacrifice a personal selfish comfort at expense of children to nurture them and spend quality time with them. Get to know your children to be the first person they talk to rather than a wrong friend putting them under peer pressure to get into trouble. At the end of the day him life is the best gift in life God gives so treasure children and teach them go value their lives. Yes it is good to look good and dress well but it must not becomes a cause of conflict in school education. A decent moderate appearance with excellent grades often helps gain exceptional opportunities to accomplish great things. Just take a look at photo of old clothes and hairstyles to ask yourself is this the reason one could not study hard to build a career? Unless in the fashion industry business clothes change with colours of seasons so worth asking yourself if its better to invest in books, educational gadget, school needs to enhance academic achievement. And parents must not condone with children to argue with schools over hairdo and designer clothing than grades in school. A lot of children waste time on dressing up, make ups, changing their looks for Selfies and preoccupied with vanity. So do not study and hope for quick bucks making money by unrealistic methods. It is necessary to help children study at home, supervised and checked without fibs of assignments done on the school computer. This generation is so smart parents need to be aware to help them. Some play away their youth and pay for it by having to suffer in middle age. And the gifted embark on success sacrificing youth to pave way to rewarding future but feel lonely and isolated. Recently, David Graeber, LSE anthropologist and author, said 37-40% of people feel their jobs are pointless; worse still, they are generally correct. The career they chose did not fulfil them as school subjects were forced on them to meet criteria for grants. The chance of feeling valued in society after emerging from strains of final education is challenging for those who struggled in school or the gifted who made it with excellent grades. Can education meet realistic needs of pupils and students? Others adopt the extreme measures of taking their lives when it was too much to deal with challenges of life. What is the purpose of education if it creates casualties than fulfilled adults.

READ PSALM 27 IN BIBLE

27 The LORD is my Light and Salvation whom shall I fear? The LORD GOD is the Strength of my life, of whom shall I be afraid? When the wicked, even enemy foes, came upon me to eat my flesh they stumbled and fell. If a host encamps against me, my heart shall not fear: though war may rise against me, I have CONFIDENCE in God. One thing I desire of the LORD and I seek after; that I will dwell in the House of the LORD all the days of my life to see the beauty of the LORD and enquire in HIS Temple. 5 For in the time of trouble HE shall hide me in HIS pavilion, in HIS Tabernacle HE hides me; HE has set me up upon my rock Jesus Christ. Now my head is lifted up above all the enemies around me. I offer to God in HIS Tabernacle sacrifices of joy I sing yes, I sing praises to the LORD7 Hear, O LORD, when I cry with my voice: have MERCY on me and answer me. When YOU said seek MY Face; my heart said to YOU, YOUR Face, LORD I seek. Hide not YOUR Face far from me put not your servant away in anger YOU are my help; leave me not or forsake me O GOD of my salvation. 10 If my father and my mother forsake me the LORD GOD will take me up. 11 Teach me your way LORD and lead me in the plain path because of enemies. 12 Deliver me from the will of enemies for false witnesses rise up against me, breathing out cruelty. 13 I will have fainted if I did not believe to see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living. 14 I wait on the LORD, I am of good courage, GOD will strengthen my heart, I wait on LORD GOD ALMIGHTY in Jesus Name. Continue to maintain deliverance by prayer and serve God in Jesus Name.

ANGELS ON ASSIGNMENTS

Hope is restored in God Almighty by the angels on assignment testimony shared all over the world. This proves amazing power of God in two young boys used by God under the prophet Jeremiah to restore hope in God in all people’s lives. Actions taken during adversity has helped to overcome challenging overwhelming circumstances to create this angel. His father was blind six years ago on the morning he woke up and could not see again. His young son, two years old then put total faith and trust in God and listened daily to the teachings of the word of God. He recognised his solution in God Almighty so went to church and focussed on what the man of God taught the congregation. He spent his spare times from two years old until 8years old in the House of God. His gift of listening actively manifested in how he was able to imitate the man of God’s preaching style. Although, his family at that time faced adversity, he looked up to God for the answers to his problems. He did not own a television at home so went into the church regularly to watch mannerism of the man of God. At the same time, God revealed to man of God HE will send helpers to assist him in ministry. God does reveal secrets to HIS prophets so day came this eight year old became chosen vessel of God’s GLORY. The man of God asked young people to dance to choose one who step forward to conduct service as he does. IMG-20180907-WA0000He sat down and observed two young boys who now run services in front of the whole church. It was that moment God answered prayer and revealed HIS chosen helper. Man of God introduced helpers to the church and learnt about his life and challenging circumstances of family. The heavily pregnant mother of this boy confirmed the boy’s identity and story of his father’s blindness for six years. It is the day their lifestory changed so the situation turned around and what the devil meant for evil ALMIGHTY GOD INTERVENED TO GLORIFY HIMSELF in their testimony. In the midst of pain the boy FOCUSSED ON JESUS CHRIST as way of redemption from adversity. God rewarded his faith, and like Samuel, used by God Almighty to serve God’s people globally led by the Spirit of God. Together team up with the other angel to minister and to prophesy accurately like Samuel in the Bible. This is the Lord’s doing, because in the book of Joel, God said in the last days young people will prophesy and see visions to reveal HIS GLORY. This is to RESTORE HOPE AND CONFIDENCE IN GOD because so many people feel let down by Church so are disappointed and disheartened. God says infants and babies will praise HIM so children from God speak, teach, heal the world. Their innocence God HEARS SO ANSWERS THEIR PRAYERS. This results in seeing God’s Spirit and HIS POWER manifested and CONFIRMED in their prophecies, deliverance, healing help people facing challenges all over the world with HOPE RESTORED IN GOD. Great joy watching and listening to God and Jesus speaking through the little children. Holy Spirit builds faith in people and so their lives changed forever. This is the LORD God’s doing through HIS SON Jesus and this is marvelous in our eyes. The miracles are amazing because of privilege of having LIVING PRESENCE OF GOD in church as originally planned by God. If you have never seen this miracles before watch God at work in following video. GLORY to God in Jesus Name for HIS Mercy and sending the angels to minister to people to restore faith and Hope in God. Thank you Jesus for revealing your work and saving so many people. Thank you Holy Spirit thanks for preventing the world from complete annihilation in the Name of Jesus. Thank you Father God for the Prophet Jeremiah, Little Jeremiah and Junior Jeremiah angels. God gets angel’s attention to help people although God is not responsible for creating their needs. IMG-20180907-WA0001God abundantly created perfect original world destroyed by actions of mankind. And yet in the midst of pain good comes out although not expected. Experiencing pain drives people straight to seek relief and help to stop pain. Be encouraged to know God and Jesus loves you, so kind, tolerant, patient, turning pain into good. Sounds contrary to human expectation to say pain is a good thing. Pain, stress, frustration causes combination factors to run to God after other means do not work. Nerves in body send pain signals to brain to process something is wrong to seek help for trauma. This ingenious way God created in body to respond to pain to notice it to take action. Activities and daily experiences preoccupy people some ignore pain hoping it disappears. The pain gets worse so cannot function, gets full attention of pain tool designed by God. Physical pain mirrors spiritual pain experienced by ignoring God. The discomfort, distress drives need for an urgent solution in the House of God by those neglecting God when all is well in their lives. Pain adversity reminds them of God’s LOVING kindness, Grace and Mercy. God uses pain to draw people closer to HIMSELF for salvation and restoration. God’s uses pain so to seek forgiveness, repentance by pain signals deep within soul. Pain calls for help of God to seek HIM and Lord Jesus Christ to avoid further suffering of an eternal pain. Paying attention to pain beyond physical symptom means deeper faith reunion fellowship with God Almighty. Pain in life sometimes eminent helps a relationship with God in Christ to be a reality. An aching physical pain over the years causes some to blame or to hate God. Uttering in anger and frustration if God really exists why does HE not stop pain allowing people to suffer as God does nothing about pain. High threshold for pain numbed stops sting, medication gives temporary relief. But its not long before pain resurfaces to seek a repeat prescription addicted to. The body may not be completely restored to original form without battle scars or transient pain, but the soul is fully made whole in Christ Jesus to even find joy and hope in adversity. Mankind is going through the challenging times but it is well with the soul in Jesus Name. God rewards young and old’s CONFIDENCT HOPE in God.
