GOOD & EVIL FAST IN BIBLE

Proven health benefits of fasting

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

Matthew 6:16-18 Fast in Secret

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

Luke 18:1-12 Persistent Prayer

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

2 Samuel 12:15-17 To Save Lives

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

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. In the Bible in Acts 23:12-35 people plot to kill Paul the next morning. Some Jews vowed by oath not to eat or drink until they kill Paul. The fanatics want to kill Paul for believing in resurrection, angels, Holy Spirit did not like his teachings in the Bible. A group of more than forty Jews vowed to kill Paul but he managed to escape on a tip off from his sister’s son. They lied Paul is troublemaker, stirs up riots among Jews all over the world as a ringleader of Nazarene sect to desecrate temple seized him. Agrippa examined him to  learnt truth about false charges against him. The other Jews joined in accusation asserting lies were true. The governor let Paul speak but accusers did not find him arguing with anyone at the temple, stirred crowd in the synagogues or anywhere else in city did not prove charges made. Admits he worshipped God of ancestors, follows of way of laws written in prophets with hope in God as the men in resurrection of the righteous and wicked, his conscience clear before God and man. Paul is sent to Rome after two years so lived and preached until his death during Nero’s rule. Attacks by evil fast makes people hungry, angry and violent so seems to get away with it but years later God judges the bloodlust damage caused to others. You may not later like what you fasted and prayed for. Let God’s words guide you in Spirit and in Truth in Jesus Name to supply all your needs from heaven. Do speak to people despite fasting for God uses human beings to answer prayer or needs in Jesus Name. God will not come down personally physically in front of you to give you the miracles. So speak to people as God may reveal your needs in advance to them to provide your needs through them. Use practical wisdom so not let shame or embarrassment cause you to hide in isolation overwhelmed by fear or frustration in anger against God yet fasting. Its good to fast appropriately as Bible requires but not to ‘crucify’ the flesh recklessly in the Name of God. Fasting alone is not enough in satanic cult deliverance so needs God’s prophet to cast that demon out in the Mighty Name of Jesus. Some problems need Spiritual Father in the LORD to guide and support you. So don’t in silence seek help in Jesus Name. GLORY to God.


REAL FRIENDS&FOLLOWERS

5-billion-youtube-viewstop-10-most-followed-instagram-users-as-of-2015-july-11-638unnamedyoutube-business-account-statsslide_25C4A2PlIUoAAu6MeIMG_20171211_104559b326a751df25caea8bbf8f381c60a199--real-friends-friends-showVirtual reality lifestyle seekers have so many millions of online friends on their Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, You Tube making them famous and popular. This although good is said to be unrealistic as demands of true friendship requires quality time spent getting to know each other better. Having support of friends online is inspiring, encouraging and can be helpful to isolated people. Professor of a university of psychology and social well-being however says having real life connection with 4 trustworthy friends and reliable people in your lives makes huge difference. Billions bring comfort to people especially in time of need yet as darkest times pass so ‘friends’ move on to their reality and the challenges of their daily lives. The anger, pain, guilt, loss, sorrow, practical grief part of the journey of healing recovery is personal no matter how popular or famous. The private times to deal with life are valid as public life. Having a group of reliable friends listening, supporting necessary in times of suffering. Yet the private processing of vulnerable moments is a serious time of deep reflection alone if even in a crowd among people. As other things are done personally like eating, drinking, bathing, walking, driving or running, unless an infant or incapable, real life experience actions you must do so understand fulfilment, contentment inner joy, strength, personal endurance are resilient qualities. This is a spiritual instruction highly didactic, helpful for personal, business group interactions:

1. *Noah* built the *ark* by faith but, he used measurements. There is a place for rational thinking in walk of faith. Not all decisions should be made with blind hope! God is the Source of direction and instructions to mankind to have good success and be saved.

2. *Sarah’s pregnancy* was a miracle, but it took nine months like any other. God’s plans does not negate importance of process. Sometime you need to wait for things to work it out normally.

3. The *stone* that killed *Goliath* was anointed, but *David’s skill* was also involved. Developing skills does not just mean God anointed, if you play a piano, play it to the fullest. Don’t take people through the agony of listening to mere cacophony in the name of “singing to hear the sound of your voice.” Skills are important but nothing rude with saying “you can’t sing, find something to do in the Glory of God.”

4. *Esther* received favour to become *queen* but she bathed and prepared her appearance. Preparation is key to become fit for occasion. Get knowledge, go to school. Stop blaming auto-correct, check spelling on social media. Rely less on technology. The ease with which we can obtain information today makes our lives much more convenient, but it can also make us stupider. The neural pathways involved in reading maps, for example, are probably much weaker in Millennials’ brains than in the brains of their parents. Millennials rely heavily on GPS navigation to help them find their way, while older generations had to get out an atlas if they got lost. If they can’t remember what a word means, many people quickly Google it than sit down and focus on trying to remember. Instead of strengthening their ability to recall information, obtain information with no thought. Rely on the phone less and your brain more. Prepare, because expect nothing but the best in life!

5. The *promised land* was full of milk and honey, but they also had to plow, feed cattle, and take care of sheep. Miracles are communication tools that God uses to instill trust, faith and the knowledge of his nature. You need to work, don’t expect miracles in a specific area of life all time. No one pays rent for a full year with miracle money. Though we need it, we want it, but God wants permanent regular supply. Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day, teach a man to fish and he eats for a lifetime.

6. *God* is the one who *created human capacity* to memorize things, yet told many prophets to write their message. Spirituality does not mean we should not use tools to package the message.

7. *Ruth* received favour of God to marry *Boaz*but the coaching of Naomi was necessary. Human coaching is necessary, you need to submit and learn from someone to spare you from silly unnecessary mistakes in life.

8. *Moses* heard directly from God, but he was wearing himself out with work, it was the wisdom of his father in law saved him from dying premature death with exhaustion. It is wisdom to put on seat belt, brush, teeth adhere to medical advise. Being spiritual does not mean asking angels to cook food for you so some things in life God or friends will not do for you.

9. *Namaan* was a mighty soldier and a friend of Kings but acted on instructions influenced by Jewish maiden. Important people are influenced by “insignificant” people. The key thing is proximity that generates influence to save your life.

Mishandling natural world can cause hinderance to progress, a total neglect of the spiritual world definitely causes total failure in all areas of life.

*Balance is the key.*

“Hear, O Israel:  The Lord our God, the Lord is one.  Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments given you today are to be upon your hearts. Impress them on your children. “Talk about them when you sit at home, when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up says Deuteronomy 6:4–7 in the Bible. Remember God in your youth, in your old age with your family. “As for me and my household we will serve the LORD God Yahweh says Joshua 24:15.

GOD DIDN’T REMOVE REDSEA

e7d5798fb6e085d9f198abb17130bf82God did not remove the red sea when Israel was crossing over to the promised land in living history. God told Moses to lift up the stick already in his hands to part red sea safely with millions of people. This teaches us God uses whatever is at hand to deliver us from problems. Often people pray asking God to remove the challenges from their lives. So focus on removing issues rather asking God for wisdom to deal with the problem faced. The crossing of the red sea is a classic example of God at work through people to reveal HIS Miracle power. God could have shouted for the red sea to part but instead God Chose to use Moses stick to let Israel know God uses even imperfect humble people to do HIS real miracles. Praying in the garden of Gethsemane, Jesus asked Father God if it is possible to remove the cup of sorrow from Him but God sent angel to encourage, strengthen Jesus to go through His Mission on the earth. At times, the reality of challenges is so overwhelming we prefer removal of problems faced. God in HIS Infinite Wisdom Knows us better so helps deal with problems to overcome them. rh-mosescrossesredseaThe ‘red seas’ in life helps us to improve listening skills to follow Godly instructions. Other ‘red seas’ increase faith as we partake God’s Miracle power through us in Jesus Name. The credit and glory always goes to God as vessels of honour to demonstrate HIS POWER on earth to people. Testimony of Godly miracles defeat the devil through the blood of the Lamb Yeshua. This Miracle is well-known globally and today relics of chariots drowned in the red sea are seen and documented to highlight the Victory over enemies of God in history. Therefore, pray and ask God to reveal what is available for you to use for your red sea miracles. God is the same yesterday today and forever so is able to do similar miracles in your life and in your family. salvation-red-seaDo not get angry with God for not removing your ‘red sea’ from you. Instead seek God’s Face to direct you to use abilities, gifts, skills, talents, wisdom the right ‘stick’ at hand to defeat the devil in Jesus Name. Do not set a deadline for God to answer prayer or become restless if answer is delayed as you wish it to happen. God’s Plan for your life is always Higher than yours so depend on God and trust God to guide you to victory. Answers from God are at times different to ours but in long-run things become clearer to understand the thoughts of God for HIS Children. This lesson of Israel crossing the red sea has been disputed as high tide and low tide both of which are still God’s creation so Israel crossed safely but the chariots of horsemen of God’s enemies drowned. It is necessary to give God due Credit not to mock HIS miracles. Living history shows those who mock God’s power do not enjoy the benefits of miracles due to unbelief. Jesus did fewer miracles in the city of Nazareth due to their unbelief. God manifests HIS Presence and Power through Jesus and believers who trust God to do miracles in their lives. Though ‘red sea’ remained firmly in place it parted when God told Moses to lift stick and did so. In same way Israel’s eternal first position before God’s throne and among nations of the earth is forever. Despite red seas Israel graples with, God parts all in right time to resolve issues in life and will do so for you in Jesus Name with thanks and Glory to God Almighty Jehovah Nissi.

GREATLY VALUED BY GOD

Abstract watercolor hand painted background. Textured paper.
God Greatly Values you more than you ever know so once you discover God’s Love for you have inner joy and peace. God blesses through changing situations in life so your focus and attention shifts to listen more to hear God due to unforseen circumstances. Transition creates helpful spiritual growth powerful testimony in Christ defeating devil. What devil means for evil God changes to good turning curses into Blessings for His Glory.  You are greatly beloved by God so as God’s beloved you are greatly Loved. Although God created mankind and breathed His breath in Adam making us living beings, few people know anything about Creator Yahweh Almighty God. The Spirit of the Living God dwells in us sustaining all life and providing for all. Declare you are God’s beloved daily to remind yourself of the Great Love God has for you. Many issues in life may challenge your confidence at times to prove if you truly believe you are God’s beloved. You can truly say you are God’s beloved to triumph in Victory according to 1 Corinthians 15:56-57. Jesus overcame sting of death and sin thanks to God who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. God’s beloved bless many more people to confirm and reinforce what Bible says that a person’s quality of life, value and worth to God does not consist of, or depend on owned material possessions. God’s beloved appreciate God’s real Love deeply through Jesus’ Blood so enter Our Father God’s Presence boldly.god-calls-us-beloved
Its not status, titles, postcodes, size of bank balance, clothing labels, type of plane, ship, cars owned, price tags of homes, designer bags, shoe designs, technology. The world is filled with idols wealth, fame, power, position, money, work, sexual relations, stars, celebrities, sports, even relationships.  These desires as priority tend to put our trust and confidence in things or people to help meet those desires. Pride in the strength of trophy wife, marriage or any thing chosen above God HURTS God like betrayed husband or wife by unfaithful spouse. Only God is absolutely worthy of Worship as HIS Desires for us are pure and holy. God of LOVE becomes intimately involved in the affairs of mankind to save, rescue, redeem, and deliver.  This is the God who is worthy of our love and devotion and no one else. So anything placed first in lives other than God is idolatry for God Says HE IS jealous God. Do not feel pain or sadness because you lack material things and so think you are nobody in life. Others treat you badly because you outwardly does not fit into exclusive class gaithered community. Attention given to material things by man as “great” is considered “chaff” or “dung” according to God in Bible because of how aquired. Precious memories gained knowing God in Christ is PRICELESS GREAT TREASURE the wise “sell all” to “buy it” in Jesus who bought us with His Precious Blood redeem us.
livinginlove2
Lterally get rid of all junk negative thoughts and things. The word of God reveals rightly things in itself does not add value to life though improves the quality of life for a season. Bless others if not needed get rid of the excess material possessions. As one’s trash is another’s treasure give to support all considered less fortunate. Godly Love gives, blesses, transforms renewed minds to free self from heavy burdens of vanity. Release yourself from the pressures and cares of these lost world into God’s Kingdom. Getting hold of the God’s Great Truth gives liberty in Christ as best priceless treasure bringing inner joy and peace. Things of this world will soon pass away but God’s Word will stand forever and eternally in Jesus Name. Rejoice in the LORD and study God’s Words as a faithful disciple of Christ. Jesus coming soon in rapture and after restore earth. The Kingdom of God is being established throughout living history and the world is watching demolition of evil to bring in restoration of God’s Perfect Peace, Reign by Son of God Yeshua Messiah KING of Kings and Lord of lords. So be ready and prepared to join in God ‘s Kingdom for eternity on earth. Israel will be saved by the LORD with an everlasting salvation; and all grafted in will never be put to shame or disgraced to ages everlasting in Jesus Name according to Isaiah 45:17.

AFTER PROTEST WHAT NEXT

hqdefault-3GLORY to God protests of current events are endtime signs Jesus warned about so is the test runs to GOD’S KINGDOM coming soon to take over all world kingdoms as predicted by Book of Daniel in the Bible. So only THOSE IN CHRIST God calls His Children although all human beings are GOD’S creation. God allows only His Children to be part of His KINGDOM. This current changes taking place will soon turn into Rapture when Christ accepts only those in Christ into heaven alive before the great tribulation commences. All who reject Christ as GOD’S Chosen Ambassador will be left behind. And during the Reign of Christ on earth after His Second Coming only those who accept Jesus will belong in GOD’S Rule over earth. All others face wrath of God so judged then condemned into hell fire. So the action to take is have a personal relationship with God in Christ through the Holy Spirit to qualify for God’s GIFT of eternal life FOREVER. Sadly, God will turn away those who reject His Son Jesus Christ the MESSIAH so take action make to belong to God in Christ Jesus.
4221396001_5290771649001_5290764851001-vsMankind needs a change of heart and new mindsets to love and embrace one another by respect and kindness to live in peace and unity together. Everyone requires a mind of Christ to please and obey God’s words. For no man can save mankind except God and in fact God says cursed be those who put confidence in man rather than Trust in God to SAVE them. Look up to God not mankind’s actions thousands of years that prove there will be no peace until the PRINCE OF PEACE Yeshua takes over to Reign on earth in Perfect Peace. Draw near to God and GOD DRAWS NEAR to you always with you so never alone in Jesus Name. This world event verdicts are evidence of precedents to warn all people before it is too late to be saved. God is everywhere so you cannot run or hide from God. The Bible in Psalms 139:7-10 says, where shall I go from God’s Spirit? Or where shall I flee from God’s presence? If I ascend to heaven, you are there! If I make my bed in Sheol, you are there! If I take the wings of the morning and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea, even there your hand shall lead me, and your right hand shall hold me. Jesus calls and warns to wake up now to seek God today to intercede for yourself and loved ones including perceived enemies. God Loves you deeply so do not be deceived by the devil to reject Jesus God’s Son the only Hope of Glory for mankind so be saved for eternal life.

ASK FIRST BEFORE ACTIONS


_20170105_160656hqdefault (2).jpg

Ask and you will receive, and your joy will be fully complete. Ask this way by using Jesus NAME, and you will be given more, more abundantly says John 16:24-25. The Bible says ask God to give you the desires of your heart in all your ways acknowledge HIM and HE Will make your life paths straight. Honour and obey your parents, elders, adults each other so it will be well with you and you will live long. This helps ensure one endures to the end according to Philippians 4:5-7 and not  worry or be anxious about anything, but pray and ask God for everything you need or make your requests known to God, always in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God and the PEACE of God that passes all human understanding will keep your mind and heart safe in union with Christ in God.

To ask first before taking any actions can literally save your reputation and life in general. I remember shopping for the family by running errands as a young person. However in my enthusiasm I forgot to buy salt on my memory list. The meal was prepared by rinsing the salt container yet the food was bland. It was suggested to borrow salt from the neighbour nearby in their absence from the shared kitchen. My sister insisted absolutely not without asking first even if it was merely using salt in the owners absence. I learnt one of the hardest lessons in life to eat bland food by doing the right thing. My sister carefully explained that supposing I was taking only salt but seen by someone who did not know my sincere intention, that can create a wrong impression for Chinese whispers gossip. It made perfect sense so since that day salt is first item on my shopping list, storing spares to give to others. Jesus said we must not worry about what to eat for God supplies all our needs. Literally the salt lesson gave me sound knowledge to be salt of the earth not to lose my salt savour Spiritually.

no-to-salt

The no salt added to the meal message led to further conversations about why it was crucial to ask first for everything before taking any actions. A true story was told to highlight this point about two great friends who trusted each other so much one entrusted his belongings into the care of his friend while traveling abroad. Due to genuine friendship and loyalty none made a list of contents left behind. As it was unheard of to request inventory the caretaker did not bother to make a check list of contents. Ironically not knowing the content of trunk caused a problem in a culture of freely sharing everything including earned personal belongings, clothing, shoes or bags even without first asking. It is acceptable to take and use anything belonging to each other as part of their genuine loving upbringing. The brother who moved to live with sibling assumed everything in the premises belonged to his brother. So changed into clothes from the entrusted suitcase without awareness of brother. Things were normal until owner of the suitcase returned from abroad to live with his friend. It was then he noticed friend’s sibling was wearing his clothes and shoes plus other belongings. Jesus said do not be anxious about clothes to wear, do not take extra clothing or shoes or purse for Jehovah JIREH will provide.t30357-00_aluminum_ii_trunk

The brother had no idea what happened because he never checked the contents in the first place due to confidence and trust. Suddenly, the owner confronted the sibling who admitted taking and wearing clothes he assumed belonged to his brother. The penny drops and friend realised the brother took things without asking first. It was negotiated to pay for items used so their friendship survived, remained intact to withstand challenges faced by them. It taught them the vital lesson to ask first and take inventory of contents entrusted with a list signed by both and note left in the box for future reference not to repeat such a mistake. Lack of communication by the parties involved caused these problems so it is necessary to ask first before taking any action including family members. This valuable lesson taught me consequences to always ask first, text, phone, write a letter to ask permission before taking any action. Even when taking initiative it is good to ask permission to confirm the decision before embarking on actions. It seems like commonsense to ask but an age old tradition requires fair sharing of belongings so some people are allowed to take from each other. Property freely shared may seem a strange concept to others not living in such a society. Some communities share to help all the people so their perception of materialic views varies. Personal belongings and personal interaction space therefore is not closely guarded or individualistic.

05110a80fce7089562967420f74b54075b3182-wmThen conversation turned into a further discussion of impact of violating another individual’s personal property without asking first their permission. It was the secret indulgence of favourite drink that badly went wrong for another man who freely helped himself without asking first. He regularly visited a nearby local farm and clandestinely served himself without the owner’s permission. After months of being deprived that owner resorted to a dark thought planned to catch that person depriving him of his favourite drink. One day, he carefully hid nearby to watch the villain enjoy his free drink as usual at his expense. True to his plan and expectation that person turned up to gulp his drink. However, this time it contained extra taste of faesis he spat out in shock and was shouting he drank excrement. At this point the farm owner confronts him to say yes indeed you just drank poo! This became his nickname in the town as people heard the news and were so surprised by his actions of not asking first. In fact the farmer would have willingly given him free supply everyday if only he asked first. He was asked to compensate the farmer for past secret drinks he confirmed he drank. This extreme measure is not approved or recommended as best method to solve problem so it is wise to have the courage to ask first. Jesus said do not worry about what to drink the heathen do so but God knows your needs supplies them before you even ask Him. A bottle of a healthy living freshwater or wine God provides. silhouette of alcoholic drunk man drinking whiskey bottle feeling depressed falling into addiction problemThe final caviar story of asking first for wine was told in the sad story of wicked father who inadvertently killed his own son who visited him at the weekend. The son on arrival found a bottle of wine in a corner of the room. The son assumed his father saved the wine for him so without asking first drank some of that wine. So with the rest of the bottle of wine in his hands he went towards his father to talk to him. The father screamed if you drank that wine you are a dead man. Indeed his son had already drank the wine without asking first. Unfortunately, it turned out to be a toxic poison concocted for enemy his father wanted to give to an opponent over a land dispute to kill him but sadly the golden rule damaged his son’s life. Sadly his son passed away just because he did not Ask First before drinking that wine. He probably drank many previous bottles of wine in the past without any risk to his life as he did that same again. The thought of asking first did not cross his mind, after all he is his father never thought of as a murderer. In the cases of examples shared sometimes self control and self denial discipline can seem like harsh punishment. However there is a reason behind Godly instructions to save lives and protect communities for their own good. Training a child to ask first for all items or gifts to confirm it is alright to take and use at the right time is vital. Even if their name is written on it, they must confirm with the householder if it is alright to open and use it. Many precious lives sadly perished when their enemy on pretext of peace meal invited them to eat. While identical meal was served to two parties one group’s food was laced with poison. The other party member without asking first if he can cross over to eat the enemy food when and took seconds from their pot. All the enemies plus that one man died thinking it was genuine peace making party. So many died deceived into thinking the enemy was sincere and their land was taken by their enemies. Disastrous stories all over the world show things are not always as they seem so be careful and be wise. The basic instructions must be train children early to reflect on their thoughts first to ask before taking actions. Remember to ASK FIRST before taking any actions.

GOD & JESUS’ FACE IN CLOUD

God and Jesus, angels protect mankind or warn of changes happening in living history. Some people await the great day of rejoicing reunion with God, others believe angel sent to save, bring miracles, comfort, warn or carry soul to heaven. Billions hear Doomsday sounds warning in hundreds of Youtube videos capturing 7 trumpet sounds by 7 angels played in heaven before Throne of God. So exist direct daily connection between heaven and earth and visions of God or Jesus appearing or angels. So sentinel of peace for God’s children but sadness for God warning sinners of Judgement Day.face_of_god_cloud_by_jamesbrey-d288n7kThis is where to get into the whole faith thing to put pictures into context for the sake of God’s Perspective. Generally some people feel a strong connection to God throughout their whole lives. Many times remember seeing beautiful cloud formations and shapes playing outside. Yet a within a few seconds clouds seen pass and sun is shining through. Natural phenomenon of divine communication always happens because God created the heavens and earth directly to live side by side together with mankind. God is directly involved in the affairs of men including atheists so reveals HIS Image, Presence and HIS Power everyday on earth. God keeps the heavens in touch with earth so both are in existence to compkement each other. Those who know God understand these pictures in the clouds from the word of God in Bible. People genuinely following God’s Majestic beautiful creation of the firmaments so not delusional. God_profilestorm-2014-082.jpgGod and Jesus are here seen together in Norfolk UK. Through other times in life, particularly troubling times, God Comes Through on many occasions with HIS number of miracle experiences of God to make HIS people feel VERY assured. God Speaks to those who care to take notice of HIM to listen to HIM. So clouds are fascinating. Look at the sky long enough and you can see all kinds of things from faces to shapes. We look at some unique and familiar things seen among the clouds and share what type of clouds formed them. Special good quality time bond with God intimately is highly appreciated, cherished, valued to seek encouragement from God. cff6b3c436ee87848118b6a5a8613f5a9dc6b141b25e75c123844b7963908742ed7a32f1ebe64dca30b929d0774616de.jpg22641ec3bf6ecac967c1a0d2592bd016The point God makes on each occasion varies from sense of humour sharing a joke for a laugh to serious warnings of God’s wrath. So people feel even weird about God making His impact felt on earth. Some believers lack good sound knowledge of Bible so not understand the depth of God so would even scoff at this but that the whole point. Some feel God’s Magnificent Presence right there, talking, revealing Himself to all but the others scoff at the very source of help seng by God to save them. godhands.jpgGrasping_god_handTHE FRIENDS OF GOD Clearly in these days God is calling His people to a RED ALERT status unlike any other time in history. The events of the last 3 years especially highlights how quickly life can shift into uncertainty felt around world. God Feels Urgency to call and alert 24/7 before God’s Presence. Friends of God, take stand before HIM, crying out for mercy on behalf of HIS suffering world. As Ambassadors of hope, light the way to Light Jesus, Only hope of Salvation.article-2722606-2046841E00000578-227_634x4755e66657a545b238a8ce736114caa7e0egods_handSo when looking up into the sky to see what God Manifests, OF COURSE one is filled with awesome humility and joy seeing the Face of God. Why would one not rejoice to see God’s Friendly Face of Hope to know HE is ever present and watching over all? Though fully aware that different people will see different things in the images or even others see nothing. Interesting is some people seen each photo of a face they know already. So lack of knowledge causes some not to recognise God, Jesus, or angel face sent to inspire in pictures. This is a spiritual perfect metaphor for God’s entire cloud sky project. REALLY God’s face in the photo is considered as bizarre to those taught not allowed to see their Beloved Father GOD’S Face call Him by His Full Name.lenticular_clouds_crimea_russia03lenticular-yalta-3The earth is God’s Footstol so now God’s Message is boldly plastered across clouds in the sky for all to picture share. God will not let people hide HIM from others who think HE is rambling of religious nuts. Clear cut straightforward answer to God’s Presence is either take God very seriously and be ready for HIS Son Jesus Coming to save or part of God mockers with ridiculous questions. Ultimately, what God means depends upon each to own possibility with God open to. Faith pleases God so logical arguments, scientific analysis, debates, reasonings, arguments do not do justice to Supernatural Magnitude of Powerful Presence of God. God says the pure in heart see God so necessary to keep a pure heart trusting believing in God. It is alright to be seeing, feeling and actually seeing God so a good feeling.

ON HEARING GOD’S VOICE

In 1 Samuel 3:1-19, the boy Samuel as a young child woke up and heard his name called by God. Samuel ran to Prophet Eli and said here I am but Eli did not call him it was God. Eli told Samuel to go to bed so Samuel heard God calling again 2 more times. Finally, Eli said to Samuel, you are hearing God’s Voice answer God say, Here I am, Spreak LORD, your servant is listening. God gave messages to Samuel for whole nation on actions of Hophni Phinehas in Temple against God. Prophet Eli was old retired and blind so his sons worked in Temple.19 They did not honour God and abused women. God Spoke to a little boy to deliver message to whole nation so it happened. God was with Samuel as he grew up and so God let none of Samuel’s words fall to the ground all Samuel said came to pass as God told him. 20 Israel, from Dan to Beersheba knew Samuel as a genuine man of God, testify is prophet of the LORD. 21 LORD God continued to appear at Shilo HE revealed HIMSELF to Samuel through HIS WORD. People still clearly hear God’s and recognize God’s VOICE as one knows sound of various voices in family. God’s Voice is Poised, Soft, Gentle, Tender Loving, Handsome, Smiles, if Good News. Feels Joy is in the Presence of God’s Holy Spirit, laughter, elation, deep inner peace accompanies joyful moment encourage love intimate happiness. Godly joy is calm mature joy composed heart deeply in love with God and Christ First LOVE. GOD’s gives great confidence and wonderful refreshing joy. Presence of God reveals visions, and dreams seen knowing God personally, enjoy genuine love, trust, hope in Christ. God’s Heavenly hosts, angels are with us with messages from God listen to hear God’s VOICE. God uses meaningful real dreams to Speak to people. In the last days people dreams dreams of real life events from God to the world through you. Dreams open way to receive God’s Grace in new realm possibilities. Other dream destroy with seeds of doubt and deception from enemies. In Genesis 37:9 Joseph dreams more dreams told his family God shows him visions of family bowing to him came to pass in real life his many dreams. The LORD speaks through dreams to give instructions and give Divine healing. In Numbers 12:6, God said, Hear MY WORDS, if there a Prophet among you I the LORD God make MYSELF known to him in vision and speak to him in dreams.Pay serious attention to Hear GOD’S VOICE. The Spirit of LORD reveals deep secrets of God but if Holy Spirit is grieved God is silent speaks to Samuel in case of Eli and nation of Israel God Visits some for assignments. God Feels Let down, Jesus Weeps, Silent in Deep Thought when HE I’d Disappointed. God changes HIS tone of Voice deep sad impression reveals to prophets sad secret events in advance. May feel sorrowful, weeps intensely for days shake, spirit of heaviness intercede pray for days make supplication ask for God’s Mercy until feel Holy Spirit uplifts by answered prayer for change. Others confirm messages received noted down written or video diary in line with God’s Messages to you. Word of God in Bible confirms God’s Voice, logos rhema word comes alive in new light like never read verse before to understand meaning.Above all, Praise, Sing and worship God privately to seek God’s Face sometimes with fasting prayer to ask Him to clarify messages. The human capacity does not immediately grasp full message ask God for further instruction. Ask God for sign of confirmation as Hezekiah told God to prove HIS WORD and turn sundial clock back in time 40 degrees. So worship God write message date down look for more messages about first message when God manifests previous visions or messages comes to pass. Remember to thank God testify of God’s Goodness and Love as we defeat devil by our testimony. God’s Testimony by Holy Spirit through Christ God’s Lamb’s Blood in Jesus Name. Jesus speaks directly from heaven as He did to Saul / Paul on way to Damascus Syria to persecute  Christians. In these same ways God speaks directly to people on the earth as heard seen during baptism of Jesus by John the Baptist.When Jesus was baptized by John the baptist God’s Voice descended as a dove to CONFIRM and APPROVE Jesus as the True Messiah and the Son of God. God’s Voice was heard and seen like a dove symbolizing the Holy Spirit. In Matthew 3: 16-17, after Jesus was baptized in river Jordan water the heavens opened and He saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove above Hin from heaven. Jesus saw the Spirit of God Our Heavenly Father and the Holy Ghost testified of Jesus by descending like a dove above Him. Then a voice from heaven, saying: This is my beloved Son, to Him I am well pleased, so hear and obey Him. John the Baptist told people repent of sins and be saved. “Jesus said His sheep hear His Voice. Those who prefer ignoring GOD’S VOICE to only hear human voices cannot HEAR God. God REVEALS HIMSELF everyday one way or another to those who Know and HEAR HIS VOICE.  Those who doubt God can ask God to help their unbelief as God STILL SPEAKS today. Some refuse to hear GOD’S VOICE although HE Talks to them. The average Christian’s lifestyle is so busy not conducive to hearing God’s voice. God does not force, impose HIS WILL on people. Those who only prefer hearing human voices cannot hear God. Those who put their all their confidence and trust only in people cannot hear God. Those who doubt God can still speak today will never hear God even if He talks to them. For they shut their ears to God or they are too busy to call God directly or listen to God’s Voice. Those too busy on gadgets, computer, phone must switch it off to hear God.Those with false humility reject God’s Voice but PREFER to HEAR only friends all day long. For instance typical answer to question, “How are you? responds with problems, illness, chaos. They cannot shut up long enough to be quiet in God’s Presence to hear God’s Voice. Some fear solitude as loneliness so miss out on practice of the Presence of God. Othets condemn humble dedicated God Lovers, disciplined enough to be silent for a few moments daily to hear God’s Voice as God fanatics. Such ridicule and mockery caused GOD’S WRATH to fall by rain and flood destroying some in days of Noah and fire of Sodom and Gomorrah. These actions prevent some people from hearing God’s Voice directly. Some say they are Moses hearing God’s Voice on other’s behalf. Also negative self- talk drives away God’s Presence. Reverence of God brings God’s Loving Presence. Some make lazy excuses with things of God but judge, criticize or jealous of those who fear God. God USES foolish things to confound the wise so miss God’s Voice misinterpreted as annoying, super-spiritual or fearful of God’s anger because of lifestyle choices. The humble Honour God and boldlly say, “God told me confidently knowing God performs His Word. Do not be molded, conditioned to be skeptical, critical and neagative falsely analytical or rebellious, challenging, doubtful never accepting God’s Truth. So seek traditions of men logical reasoning proof of God to their own hurt and destruction. God’s Words never returns void or change no matter how arrogant people feel above God Himself. God Surely Speaks to the humble who Listen, Love, Obey, Him.
