DO NOT READ THE NEWS?

520c2a94c1ba0.image (1)Billy Graham said, read the Bible and watch the Bible unfold in the news. The news is full of global events setting the stage towards fulfilment of Rapture and Armageddon. Updates everyday reveals the contents of the Bible from Genesis to Revelation precisely as Jesus foretold. It is also written in the Bible that the truth you know sets you free. So those free in God in Christ see the signs and wonders of the supernatural events testifying of God’s Glory in majestic created universe and firmament. Weather forecasts and storms, flood warnings, fire risks, other warnings to the world are relayed constantly throughout the day to alert people. Various channels also provide documentaries to educate the public and provide entertainment. Publicity generated by news creates awareness for injustices all over the work to make people bring change.hqdefaultAlthough the news is at times repetitive news of exact words repeated every 15-30 minutes overwhelming but ensures people are alerted, updated, reminded of more breaking news. Some however find the news irrelevant so are advising people not to watch news at all to prevent fear mongering. They argue “In the past few decades, the fortunate have recognised the hazards of living with an overabundance of food (obesity, diabetes) so started to change diets. But most do not understand news is to the mind what sugar is to the body. News is easy to digest so media feeds small bites of trivial matter, tidbits that don’t really concern lives or don’t require thinking. So experience no saturation unlike the reading of books and the long magazine articles (which require thinking). The limitless quantities of news flashes are bright-coloured candies for mind. Today reached same point in relation to global information faced 20 years ago similar in regard to food. People are beginning to recognise how toxic news can be:DEVELOPING_NEWS27News misleads. For example following an event of a car driving over a bridge, and if bridge collapses, the news media focuses on the car, person in car, where from, journey etc not the structural root causes of instability of the bridge. That’s underlying risk lurking or lurk in other bridges. The car is flashy, dramatic and a person in the news cheap to produce.’ News leads ‘misleads’ with completely wrong risk map in heads. Some news are over-rated. Chronic stress is under-rated. The collapse of Lehman Brothers is overrated. Fiscal irresponsibility is under-rated. Astronauts are over-rated. Nurses are under-rated it continued.

Article also said, some are ‘not rational enough if exposed to press. Watching an airplane crash on television changes an attitude toward that risk, regardless of its real probability. Bankers, economists with powerful incentives to compensate news-borne hazards could not prevent the credit crunch. So said, ‘cut yourself off from news consumption entirely. To advise people to boycott news totally is not possible because lives are saved by the dedicated services of newsmakers. Everyone has their own perspectives in life so entitled to their opinions, views or dimension of relevant suitable news If anyone feels strongly influenced to an extent of depression then it is better not spend whole day watching the news. In life moderation is required and so quick check of the weather forecast help the people to dress suitably, if they need an umbrella from rain, wind or the storm causing hazards warning drivers to be careful on roads. The media educates the public to warn of spread of diseases and where to avoid. So the news is not just exclusively consistently bad news. One has options to change the channel or switch it off if too busy at times. With unpredictable weather, storms tsunami, or fires, news becomes available source of information during crises to alert and save lifes. The Christian Channel News is available teaching and explaining the endtime signs and wonders to preapare people to store food, water and blankets or essentials before disaster happens.DBHOEg5VYAEQIGR

News is irrelevant. In approximately 10,000 news stories read in the last 12 months, name one that allowed you to make a better decision about a serious matter affecting your life, your career or your business. To them consumption of news is irrelevant but people find it very difficult to recognise so. It’s much easier to recognise what’s new, relevant versus new is the fundamental battle of the current age. So Media organisations want people to believe ‘news offers the sort of competitive advantage many fall for.’ Get anxious if cut off from flow of news consumption as a competitive disadvantage. The less news consumed, the bigger advantage one has they said.59397

News has no explanatory power. News items bubbles popping on surface of a deeper world is accumulating facts but not helpful to understand world in their opinion. “Relationship is inverted so important stories are non-stories and slow, and powerful movements develop below journalist radar has transforming effect. The more ‘news factoids’ digested the less of bigger picture is understood.” If more information leads to the higher economic success, journalists will be at top of the pyramid. That’s not the case.” Journalists not relay news from various places in all weathers risking life to tell world stories affecting lives. Journalists do not vlog their personal lives in news as the YouTube videos do.58a712ece126b28e55c15b57457edc17

News is toxic to body. It constantly triggers limbic system. Panicky stories spur release of cascades, glucocorticoid (cortisol). This deregulates the immune system and inhibits release of growth hormones. So body in a state of chronic stress. High glucocorticoid levels causes indigestion, lack of growth of cells, hair, bone, nervousness and susceptibility to infections. A potential side-effect causes fear aggression, tunnel-vision and also desensitisation and lethargy.Presidency

News increases cognitive errors. News feeds cognitive error towards the confirmation bias. Warren Buffett: said “What the human being is best at doing is interpreting all new information so their prior conclusions remain intact.” News exacerbates this flaw to become prone to overconfidence, to take stupid risks and misjudge opportunities. It also exacerbates a cognitive error story bias. Brains crave stories “make sense,” even if they don’t correspond to reality. Any journalists who writes, “market moved because of X” or a is company bankrupt because of Y” is cheap “explanation” to the world they also stated in the article.57009_1280x720News inhibits thinking. Since thinking requires concentration, concentration requires uninterrupted time. The News is specifically engineered to interrupt so like “viruses distract attention for own purposes. The News makes some people shallow thinkers but worse than that, it severely affects memory. There are two types of memory. Long-range memory’s capacity is nearly infinite, but working memory is limited to a certain amount of slippery data. The short-term to long-term memory for brain to understand passes through it. If brain passageway is disrupted nothing gets through. Because news disrupts concentration, it weakens comprehension. Online news has worse impact. In a 2001 study two scholars in Canada showed that the comprehension declines as the number of hyperlinks in a document increases. Whenever a link appears the brain makes the choice not to click so distracting. News interrupts the system of focus and concentration.153637_1280x720

News works like a drug. Ongoing story develops so people want to know how they continued. Hundreds of arbitrary storylines in a head craves increasingly compelling information hard to ignore. Scientists thought dense connections in brain formed in the 100 billion neurons inside skulls were largely fixed by time one reached adulthood. But nerve cells routinely break old connection forming new ones. As more news is consumed the neural circuits devoted to skimming and multitasking ignores reading skills for deep thinking and profound focus. Most news consumers even if avid book readers lost ability to absorb lengthy articles or books. After four, five pages get tired, concentration vanishes, and restless. Not because older or schedules or more onerous but physical structure of their brains changed from the news.”55076_1280x720

News wastes time. Read newspaper for 15 minutes each morning, check news for 15 minutes during lunch and then 15 minutes before going to bed, add five minutes here and there when at work, then count distraction and refocusing time loses half day a week. Information is no longer scarce commodity attention is. If responsible with money and health or reputation health why not the mind?

News makes some passive. The News stories overwhelmingly about things one cannot influence by daily repetition not acted upon makes some passive. It grinds down until adopts the worldview pessimistic, desensitized, sarcastic and fatalistic. The scientific term is “learned helplessness.”So not surprised if a news consumption, partially contributes to the widespread disease of depression.Weather_Alert_Bumper_Blue_1280

News kills creativity. Finally, the news limits creativity. Great mathematicians, novelists, composers and entrepreneurs often produce their most creative works at a young age. Their brains enjoy wide, uninhabited space that emboldens them to come up to pursue novel ideas. There is no single truly creative mind who is a news junkie not a writer, not composer, mathematician, physician or a scientist, musician, designer, architect or painter. But viciously uncreative mind consume news like drugs si come up with just old solutions by reading the news. However those looking for new solutions they said do not listen to the news.breaking-news-new-photo-4.gif

Its necessary society has journalism in a different way especially investigative journalism is relevant. Reporting news on policies, institutions, uncovers truth. But the important findings do not have to arrive in form of news. Long journal articles or in-depth books are good too.

The writer of the article said, has gone without news for 4 years so sees, feels and reports effects of freedom from the first-hand: less disruption, less anxiety, deeper thinking, more time and insight. Concludes its not easy, but it’s worth it.

In the past few decades, the fortunate among us have recognised the hazards of living with an overabundance of food (obesity, diabetes) and have started to change our diets. But most of us do not yet understand that news is to the mind what sugar is to the body. News is easy to digest. The media feeds us small bites of trivial matter, tidbits that don’t really concern our lives and don’t require thinking. That’s why we experience almost no saturation. Unlike reading books and long magazine articles (which require thinking), we can swallow limitless quantities of news flashes, which are bright-coloured candies for the mind. Today, we have reached the same point in relation to information that we faced 20 years ago in regard to food. We are beginning to recognise how toxic news can be.

News misleads. Take the following event (borrowed from Nassim Taleb). A car drives over a bridge, and the bridge collapses. What does the news media focus on? The car. The person in the car. Where he came from. Where he planned to go. How he experienced the crash (if he survived). But that is all irrelevant. What’s relevant? The structural stability of the bridge. That’s the underlying risk that has been lurking, and could lurk in other bridges. But the car is flashy, it’s dramatic, it’s a person (non-abstract), and it’s news that’s cheap to produce. News leads us to walk around with the completely wrong risk map in our heads. So terrorism is over-rated. Chronic stress is under-rated. The collapse of Lehman Brothers is overrated. Fiscal irresponsibility is under-rated. Astronauts are over-rated. Nurses are under-rated.

We are not rational enough to be exposed to the press. Watching an airplane crash on television is going to change your attitude toward that risk, regardless of its real probability. If you think you can compensate with the strength of your own inner contemplation, you are wrong. Bankers and economists – who have powerful incentives to compensate for news-borne hazards – have shown that they cannot. The only solution: cut yourself off from news consumption entirely.

News is irrelevant. Out of the approximately 10,000 news stories you have read in the last 12 months, name one that – because you consumed it – allowed you to make a better decision about a serious matter affecting your life, your career or your business. The point is: the consumption of news is irrelevant to you. But people find it very difficult to recognise what’s relevant. It’s much easier to recognise what’s new. The relevant versus the new is the fundamental battle of the current age. Media organisations want you to believe that news offers you some sort of a competitive advantage. Many fall for that. We get anxious when we’re cut off from the flow of news. In reality, news consumption is a competitive disadvantage. The less news you consume, the bigger the advantage you have.

News has no explanatory power. News items are bubbles popping on the surface of a deeper world. Will accumulating facts help you understand the world? Sadly, no. The relationship is inverted. The important stories are non-stories: slow, powerful movements that develop below journalists’ radar but have a transforming effect. The more “news factoids” you digest, the less of the big picture you will understand. If more information leads to higher economic success, we’d expect journalists to be at the top of the pyramid. That’s not the case.

News is toxic to your body. It constantly triggers the limbic system. Panicky stories spur the release of cascades of glucocorticoid (cortisol). This deregulates your immune system and inhibits the release of growth hormones. In other words, your body finds itself in a state of chronic stress. High glucocorticoid levels cause impaired digestion, lack of growth (cell, hair, bone), nervousness and susceptibility to infections. The other potential side-effects include fear, aggression, tunnel-vision and desensitisation.

News increases cognitive errors. News feeds the mother of all cognitive errors: confirmation bias. In the words of Warren Buffett: “What the human being is best at doing is interpreting all new information so that their prior conclusions remain intact.” News exacerbates this flaw. We become prone to overconfidence, take stupid risks and misjudge opportunities. It also exacerbates another cognitive error: the story bias. Our brains crave stories that “make sense” – even if they don’t correspond to reality. Any journalist who writes, “The market moved because of X” or “the company went bankrupt because of Y” is an idiot. I am fed up with this cheap way of “explaining” the world.

News inhibits thinking. Thinking requires concentration. Concentration requires uninterrupted time. News pieces are specifically engineered to interrupt you. They are like viruses that steal attention for their own purposes. News makes us shallow thinkers. But it’s worse than that. News severely affects memory. There are two types of memory. Long-range memory’s capacity is nearly infinite, but working memory is limited to a certain amount of slippery data. The path from short-term to long-term memory is a choke-point in the brain, but anything you want to understand must pass through it. If this passageway is disrupted, nothing gets through. Because news disrupts concentration, it weakens comprehension. Online news has an even worse impact. In a 2001 study two scholars in Canada showed that comprehension declines as the number of hyperlinks in a document increases. Why? Because whenever a link appears, your brain has to at least make the choice not to click, which in itself is distracting. News is an intentional interruption system.

News works like a drug. As stories develop, we want to know how they continue. With hundreds of arbitrary storylines in our heads, this craving is increasingly compelling and hard to ignore. Scientists used to think that the dense connections formed among the 100 billion neurons inside our skulls were largely fixed by the time we reached adulthood. Today we know that this is not the case. Nerve cells routinely break old connections and form new ones. The more news we consume, the more we exercise the neural circuits devoted to skimming and multitasking while ignoring those used for reading deeply and thinking with profound focus. Most news consumers – even if they used to be avid book readers – have lost the ability to absorb lengthy articles or books. After four, five pages they get tired, their concentration vanishes, they become restless. It’s not because they got older or their schedules became more onerous. It’s because the physical structure of their brains has changed.

News wastes time. If you read the newspaper for 15 minutes each morning, then check the news for 15 minutes during lunch and 15 minutes before you go to bed, then add five minutes here and there when you’re at work, then count distraction and refocusing time, you will lose at least half a day every week. Information is no longer a scarce commodity. But attention is. You are not that irresponsible with your money, reputation or health. Why give away your mind?

News makes us passive. News stories are overwhelmingly about things you cannot influence. The daily repetition of news about things we can’t act upon makes us passive. It grinds us down until we adopt a worldview that is pessimistic, desensitised, sarcastic and fatalistic. The scientific term is “learned helplessness”. It’s a bit of a stretch, but I would not be surprised if news consumption, at least partially contributes to the widespread disease of depression.

News kills creativity. Finally, things we already know limit our creativity. This is one reason that mathematicians, novelists, composers and entrepreneurs often produce their most creative works at a young age. Their brains enjoy a wide, uninhabited space that emboldens them to come up with and pursue novel ideas. I don’t know a single truly creative mind who is a news junkie – not a writer, not a composer, mathematician, physician, scientist, musician, designer, architect or painter. On the other hand, I know a bunch of viciously uncreative minds who consume news like drugs. If you want to come up with old solutions, read news. If you are looking for new solutions, don’t.

Society needs journalism – but in a different way. Investigative journalism is always relevant. We need reporting that polices our institutions and uncovers truth. But important findings don’t have to arrive in the form of news. Long journal articles and in-depth books are good, too.

I have now gone without news for four years, so I can see, feel and report the effects of this freedom first-hand: less disruption, less anxiety, deeper thinking, more time, more insights. It’s not easy, but it’s worth it.

KING JESUS WILL TAKE OVER

king-jesus-will-reignEzekiel 38 describes an upcoming world event to happen globally so be educated on changes taking place. God heard the cries of suffering people and seen their sorrows so taking action now. Sovereing LORD God Yahweh gave 6,0000 years to mankind to change in vain. Global fulfilment culminates in Armageddon battle so people must understand what is happening. Ezekiel 38 describes LORD GOD’s Great Victory Over the Nations as follows in Ezekiel 38. The word of the LORD says “Son of man, set your face against Gog of land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshek and Tubal; prophesy against himand say: ‘This is what the Sovereign LORD says: I AM against Gog, chief prince of Meshek and Tubal. 4  So will turn around, put hooks in jaws and bring out with your whole army, horses, horsemen fully armed, great horde with large and the small shields brandishing sword. Persia, Cush and Put will be with them with shields and helmets.maxresdefault  Gomer with troops, and Beth Togarmah from the far north with troops with the many nations with them. ‘Get ready; prepare you and all the hordes gathered about you and take command of them. After many days you will be called to arms. In future years you will invade a land that recovered from war, whose people gathered from many nations to mountains of Israel, which used to be desolate. They had been brought out from the nations, and now all of them live in safety. You and all your troops and the many nations with you will go advancing like a storm; you will be like cloud covering the land. 10 This is what the Sovereign LORD says: On that day thoughts will come into your mind to devise evil schemes.end-times-bible-prophecy-unfolding-newspaper-headlines-scripture-being-fulfilled-now-begins

11 You will say, “I will invade a land of unwalled villages; attack a peaceful and unsuspecting people all of them living without walls and without gates and bars. 12 I will plunder and loot and turn my hand against the resettled ruins and the people gathered from the nations, rich in livestock and goods, living at the center of the land. 13 Sheba and Dedan and the merchants of Tarshish and all her villages will say to you, “Have you come to plunder? Have you gathered your hordes to loot, to carry off silver and gold, to take away livestock and goods and to seize much plunder. 14 “Therefore, son of man, prophesy and say to Gog: ‘This is what the Sovereign LORD says: In that day, when my people Israel are living in safety, will you not take notice of it? 15 You will come from your place in far north, you and many nations with you, all of them riding on horses, a great horde, a mighty army. 16 You will advance against my people Israel like a cloud that covers the land. In days to come, Gog, I will bring you against my land, so nations may know me when I am proved holy through you before their eyes.ee2f1777fb9d37f66bfe8bf72ce368cd--christian-symbols-christian-quotes

17 “‘This is what the Sovereign LORD  God says: You are the one I spoke of in former days by my servants, prophets of Israel. At that time they prophesied for years that I would bring you against them. 18 This is what will happen in that day: When Gog attacks land of Israel, my hot anger will be aroused, declares the Sovereign LORD God. 19 In zeal and fiery wrath declares at that time there shall be a great earthquake in the land of Israel.20 The fish in the sea, the birds in the sky, the beasts of the field, every creature that moves along the ground, and all people on the face of the earth will tremble at my presence. The mountains will be overturned, the cliffs will crumble and every wall will fall to the ground. 21 God summons a sword against Gog on all mountains declares the Sovereign LORD. And every man’s sword will be against his brother. And 22 God executes HIS judgment with the plague, bloodshed, pours down torrents of rain, hailstones, burning sulfur on him and on his troops and on the many nations with him. 23 God will show HIS greatness, Holiness and make HIMSELF known in the sight of many nations and they will know that I AM the LORD God Yahweh.’ This battle involves all nations and accomplices gathered against Israel chosen to replace them through Jesus. It is final showdown of God to take over world to make it perfectly fair for all.

Daniel’s Prayer for Nations of Israel

Daniel his face to the LORD God, seeking HIM by prayer and pleas for mercy with fasting, sackcloth and ashes. prayed to the LORD God and made confession by saying, “O LORD, the great, awesome God, who keeps covenant and steadfast love with those who love him and keep HIS commandments, we have sinned and done wrong and acted wickedly and rebelled, turning aside from your commandments and rules. We have not listened to your servants, prophets, who spoke in your name to our kings, our princes, and our fathers, and to all the people of the land. To you O LORD, belongs righteousness, but to us open shame this day, to the men of Judah, to the inhabitants of Jerusalem and to all Israel, who are near and those who are far away in all lands you have driven them, because of the treachery that they have committed against you. To us O LORD belongs open shame, to our kings, to our princes and our fathers, because we sinned against you. To you LORD our God belong Mercy and Forgiveness, for we have rebelled against you 10 and not obeyed the voice of the LORD God by walking in his laws, set before us by his servants the prophets. 11 All Israel transgressed your law and turned aside, refusing to obey your voice. And curse and oath written in the Law of Moses the servant of God have been poured out upon us because we sinned against God. 12 HE confirmed HIS WORDS, HE spoke against all and against our rulers who ruled us, bringing a great calamity. For under the whole heaven there has not been done anything like what has been done against Jerusalem. 13 As it is written in Law of Moses, this calamity is coming yet not all entreated the favour of the LORD God turning from iniquities and gaining insight by God’s TRUTH.  So 14 the LORD has kept ready the calamity brought nations for the LORD our God is righteous in all the works HE has done, and we have not obeyed HIS voice. And 15 now, O LORD our God, who brought your people out of land of Egypt with a Mighty hand and made a NAME for yourself, as at this day, we have sinned, we have done wickedly. 16 “O LORD God according to all your righteous acts, let your anger and your wrath turn away from your city Jerusalem, your holy hill, because for our sins and iniquities of our fathers, Jerusalem and your people have become a by word among all who are around us. 17 Now therefore, O our God, listen to the prayer of your servant and to his pleas for mercy, and for your own sake, O LORD make your FACE to shine upon your sanctuary, which is desolate. 18 O my God, incline your ear and hear. Open YOUR EYES and SEE the desolations, and the city called by your name. We do not present pleas before you because of our righteousness, but because of your great mercy. 19 O LORD, hear; O LORD, FORGIVE. O LORD, pay attention and act. Delay not for your own sake O my God because of your city and your people called by YOUR NAME.

Gabriel Brings an Answer

20 As Daniel was speaking and praying, confessing his sin and sin of the people Israel, and presenting pleas before the LORD God for the HOLY Mount of God, 21 while speaking in prayer, Gabriel, seen in the vision, came swiftly at the time of evening sacrifice.22 He helped to understand by saying, “O Daniel, I have now come out to give you insight and understanding. 23 At the beginning of your pleas for mercy a word went out, and I have come to tell it to you, for you are greatly loved. So consider this word and understand the vision.

The Seventy Weeks

24 “Seventy weeks decreed for people and HOLY City, to finish transgression, to put end to sin and atone for iniquity, to bring in everlasting righteousness, so seal vision as prophet and anoint most HOLY Place. 25 Know and understand that from going out of these words to restore and build Jerusalem to coming of a prince, there shall be seven weeks.   For sixty-two weeks will be built again  with squares and moat but in troubled times. 26 After sixty-two weeks anointed one shall be cut off so have nothing. So people of prince to come shall destroy Holy City and Sanctuary. Its end shall come with a flood, and to the end there shall be war as desolations as decreed. 27 And he shall make a strong covenant with many for one week and for half of the week he shall put an end to sacrifice and offering. Abominations shall come by one who makes desolate till decreed end is poured out on the desolator.” The desolator actively uses people, systems to defy GOD ALMIGHTY’S Words, laws imposing enforce compliance. Anointed ONE Jesus takes over His own property back to Rule and Reign Forever. This prayer affects all nations under heaven so is being fulfilled globally today. This includes all people all over the world so not just exclusively Israel so affects you.

PRAYER FOR ALL NATIONS:
This interesting prayer is necessary to ask God’s forgiveness at opening session of all Senate meetings, schools, homes to redeem all nations. Prayer is essential as Daniel prayed interceding on behalf of his nation for God’s Grace and Mercy.
seems prayer still upsets some people.
When Minister Joe Wright was asked to open new session of Kansas Senate, he was expected to say usual generalities,
but they heard: “Heavenly Father, God we come before you today asking your forgiveness and seeking your direction and guidance. We know Your Word says: “Woe to those who call evil good” but that is exactly what we have done.
We lost absolute focus on God as our spiritual equilibrium and reversed our values. We ridiculed absolute truth of Your Word calling it relative pluralism.
We have worshipped other gods and called it multifaith. We have endorsed perversion and called it alternative lifestyle. We exploited the poor and deprive them of your resources. We have create unemployment and called it artificial intelligence robots machines displacing workers. We have killed your unborn and called it choice. We shot the conscientious rejectors of war and the abortionists and called it justifiable. We neglect to discipline and train children and called it figuring life out, building self-esteem not to ‘discourage’ them. We have abuse power and called it politics.
We embezzle public funds and called it essential expenses. We insitutionalised bribery and called it pecks of office. We covet our neighbour’s possessions and call it ambition take over bids. We have pollute air with profanity, pornography and called it freedom of expression. We have ridicule time-honored God values of our forefathers, call it enlightenment.
Search us Oh GOD and know our hearts today; cleanse us from every sin and set us free. Amen!” Respond immediately by praying go God to forgive you in the name of Jesus. Christian Church, where Rev. Wright is pastor, people instantly logged more than 5,000calls responding.
The church is receiving international requests for copies of this prayer from India, Africa and Korea. With LORD’S God’s help this prayer must sweep over all nation WHOLEHEARTEDLY so our desire is ALL NATIONS UNDER GOD.” Forward this prayer to all on your list, in less than 30 days it would be heard by the world. Many people on your list will receive this prayer and be saved in Jesus Name. Ask God to help empower and strengthen you to have boldness to pass gospel salvation message on.

JESUS CRUSHED snake’s head

DIOS MALDICE LA SERPIENTESupernaturally Jesus’ Miracle POWER from God as The Seed of the woman crushed head of serpent the snake by a fatal blow in Genesis 3:15 in Bible. Jesus defeated God’s arch- enemy serpent and death at Calvary Cross as foretold after Adam and Eve sinned God said the Seed of the woman Jesus will bruise serpent’s head. The serpent or snake caused the deception of Adam and Eve to fall into sin in Genesis 3 to be separated from direct interaction with God. Their sin affected the perfect relationship with God so contaminated DNA of mankind. God set up redemption plan to restore mankind to God through Seed Jesus so forgives those who accept Jesus the Son of God and Messiah. The serpent snake fallen angel satan devil lucifer punished by God’s Seed Jesus for attacking God’s Children is crushed forever. satan bruise Adam EveMiraculously, redemption from the generational sin of Adam and Eve is through the Seed Jesus. God PROVED HIS POWER over death in Jesus to save all mankind. Again, God called Moses in Exodus 4 by turning his stick into snake to PROVE GOD I AM sent Moses to Egypt to speak to Pharaoh to let HIS people go from the slavery. Exodus 7:10-15 says Moses was accompanied by his brother Aaron so appeared before king Pharaoh who stubbornly refused to let God’s people go. God commanded Moses to go to Pharaoh and demand release of the slaves to go and worship God. When Moses and Aaron appeared before king Pharaoh Aaron’s rod transformed into a serpent snake. Then pharaoh’s sorcerers and magicians also changed their staff into snakes. Aaron’s Serpent swallowed the magician’s serpents before Pharaoh in Egypt to prove that Highest POWER belongs to God over serpent satan. 1The LORD God told Moses, “Pharaoh will refuse to listen so MY wonders will multiply in Egypt. So Moses and Aaron performed all these wonders yet Pharaoh hardened his heart so did not let the Israelites go out of his country. After several miracles and the death of first borns of Egyptians Hebrews gained freedom at last and left Egypt. Exodus 7:10-12 highlights again and again in Scripture in all generations how MIGHTY POWER of Living God subdues evil. Practice of snake worship some say is traditional alternative to Christianity. Culturally biased people seek true justice so put confidence in the creature in Romans 1, not Creator God Ultimate Saviour from swallowing by God’s Serpent. 1-15Despite miracles of Aaron and Moses’ snakes proving the Almighty God’s POWER swallowing sorcerer’s snakes still God hardened heart of Pharaoh. Those seeking deliverance or repent to stop following satan can face such challenges after salvation. The snake serpent stronghold defeated by God’s POWER, SUPERIOR SUPERNATURAL MIRACLE SUPERCEDING such snakes relentlessly want to attack. The good news is Jesus crushed serpent’s head so saves all who repent by a changed heart. The miracles of God’s POWER is duplicated by sorcerers and occult because the serpent was once angel of God. So the reason for what God does may not be understood but it is Best to belong to God’s SUPERIOR POWER of the Universe. God’s Perspective is above all the imitated counterfeits of the devil which cannot compare with Almighty God’s MEGA SUPERPOWER Proved over and over again in living history into infinity in Jesus, Moses among others in brass serpent story. 800px-Flemish_17th_century_Moses_and_the_Brass_SerpentIn John 3:14-15 Jesus told Nicodemus He is Like the bronze serpent in Numbers 21:4-9 as Moses lifted up snake so those who lift up eyes to look to Jesus saved from venomous bite of devil. God sent Jesus to save all mankind from snake worship culture. Jesus said be wise like serpents among enemies in the world. The serpent is crafty so tricks, deceives people to sin against God. The devil is spirit behind tricks of people of thinking the snake has mystical powers. Though it is true magician’s had some power to change their sticks into snakes the spirit behind that power is satan the devil. So God says do not gain whole world and lose your soul to the devil. Pursuit of material assets caused some to trust satan not God. In Psalm 91 POWER is given to believers over adders, serpents, snakes, young lions, scorpions to tread and CRUSH under the feet because Jesus lives in you as Paul demonstrates here. hch28 (1)The Christian’s POWER and Authority over snakes is seen in St. Paul’s actions in Acts 28:1-10 in Malta after shipwreck. Paul gathered sticks laid on fire when the poisonous snake  driven out by heat bit him on the hand between AD 59-AD 60. They arrived ashore after shipwreck in which ship was lost but all lives saved as God told Paul. God uses such occasions to show HIS POWER over snakes in many lives. This power is not to be abused to tempt God to taunt snakes unleashed to show off. Some people died in ignorance by going out deliberately to collect snakes to invade their private space and died bitten by snakes. There is absolutely nowhere in the Bible God Commands a Christian to only focus on treading on serpents. A believer is to share Gospel daily and win souls without tempting God’s POWER. Snakes in nature are part of food chain to fight rats, mice etc. Zoos or private collections keep them in view for the public to see and study them. So ritual abuse of God’s POWER this blog is talking about. God’s MIGHTY POWER is manifested through Jesus’ Power and Victory over serpent satan. The Bible describes satan as serpent and wicked as possessed by the serpentine spirit. crush-serpantSo God warns against snake worship of the creature. Things done by serpent spirits can be mistaken for God’s Holy Spirit if not discerning. Fear in snake worship is the foundation of binding covenants in many families keeping ritual snakes. A sense of belonging devotees experience, cause them to prefer gathering of such similar minded people in shrines often to sacrifice during annual ceremonies. Paul wrote in Romans 1:18-32 on God’s Wrath on Unrighteousness. 18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness unrighteousness of men who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth. 19 They know God plainly, because God shows 20 HIS invisible attributes, HIS ETERNAL POWER and Divine Nature 20 clearly perceived since creation of the world in things made. So they are without an excuse.091e0afe0d1e7c557e19c6c3c44041d2 21 Although know God, do not honour HIM as God or give thanks to HIM, but futile in thinking their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Claiming to be wise became fools 23 exchanged GLORY of Almighty Immortal God for images resembling man, birds, animals and creeping things. 24 So God gave them up to lusts of their hearts to impurity to dishonor the bodies among themselves. 25 They exchanged Truth about God for a lie to worship and serve the creatures than Creator Blessed forever! Amen. So 26 For this reason God gave them up to dishonourable passions. For their women exchanged natural relations for those contrary to nature 27 men gave up the natural relations with women consumed with passion for each other, men committing shameless acts with men receiving in themselves God’s due penalty for error. Pharaoh and enemies of God were swallowed by God’s wrath.1101978084_univ_cnt_2_xl 28 They did not see fit to acknowledge God so God gave them up to a debased mind to do what ought not to be done. 29 With manners of unrighteousness, evil, covetousness, malice, full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malicious gossips, 30 slanderers, haters of God, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, 31 And foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless. 32 Though they know God’s righteous decree those who practice such things deserve to die not only do so but approve of those who practice them. Such serpent shrines or temple prostitution use rampant fear to control shrines dominated by the leader to deceive the devotees. Wielding power over vulnerable soul-searching people looking for answers in life often drawn to cults orgies of coerced false promises. Some sex traffickers initiate victims by rituals to influence their minds. There are stories told of people losing ritual snakes and begging people not to kill them or they will die. Others practice divination occult serving snakes. Such powers are not acceptable to God as born again believers in Christ. Moses’ stick turned back into wood again now kept in Birmingham Museum in UK. It was same the stick used in the miracles including parting of red sea to Canaan.aaron-staff-turns-to-serpent1The serpent is God’s nemesis devil that destroyed humanity so why is believer worshipping God’s enemy? This article shares Christ’s Love so people will know God does not want HIS Children to be involved in snake shrines to perish. The serpent or snake, represents satan the devil and most evil all of God’s creation. Some people worship snakes literally carried inside body or kept at home as their god. The shrines have live snakes fed daily and given blood sacrifices by all those who serve shrine. Emmanuel Eni, once part of kingdom of darkness shared testimony of carrying snake in his leg. Such wealth seekers initiated in snake shrine are given token snakes to keep as point of contact for allegiance to shrine. Such people have logo symbols of snakes as a sign of potent power to try to put fear in them. Jesus, the Head of all principalities and powers has the Highest POWER people search for. God PROVES HIS POWER to Moses in Exodus by turning his stick into snake to PROVE HE IS I AM to convince Moses to go back into Egypt to speak to Pharaoh to let HIS people go from slavery. 8eb8d77cab537b8701fca2209140265d

Saviour Messiah Yeshua is second Adam Seed born of the woman Mary Who will save mankind. Just as in Exodus 7:10-15 God Commanded Moses to see Pharaoh with Aaron to demand Hebrew freedom so Jesus delivers from bondage to snake. God sends His Words to people to be set free from captivity and slavery of sin of snake worship. God is calling on people to change their hearts and minds to gain understanding and wisdom to be saved in Jesus Name before it is too late. Jesus defeated serpent so cast the great dragon out, that old serpent, called the devil, and satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth and his angels were cast out with him in Revelations 12:9. So Jesus will cast them into hellfire eternally. All POWER and AUTHORITY is given to Jesus to cast out devil and demon from people. Jesus cast 1000 demons out from Gadarene demoniac. All who truly repent and seek God will receive salvation, deliverance and healing from serpents and snakes destroyed to set free from ritual bondage. There is no need to gain the whole world and lose the soul. The material things obtained by those sacrifices are accompanied by so many unforeseen tragedies. The BLOOD of Jesus cleanses from all sin so those who accept Christ Jesus genuinely are set free in Jesus Name. Many people are serving the living God today who were once under such bondanges. Whom the Son Jesus sets free is free indeed thanks and Glory be to God Almighty.    

JESUS’ HEAVENLY REWARDS

IMG_20170827_214404Jesus will reward believers in heaven according to quality of their work for God in life. An eternal crown category is described by types of effort or sacrifices made in life by doing the works of God. So Bible in 1 Corinthians 3:12 describes rewards as gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw.  That great day all will receive reward based on the foundation laid in building their life and ministry. So each person’s ultimate performance in life is built on God foundation of gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay and stubble, merits of rewards guaranteed. A loyal believer is guaranteed salvation in Christ if one remains faithful to the end so saved. On entry into heaven in passing or Rapture is the great reunion of family and loved ones in Christ sanctified by blood of Lamb Jesus. This guarantees salvation means eternal joy in God’s Presence above all plus reward of the quality of faithful servants of God. This rewards are cast at the feet of Jesus and believers continue in heaven praising God. They face reward assessment seat of God so believers receive Jesus their appropriate rewards entitled to by their performance in life by the grace of God. Various books of life and remembrance are opened and checked to tell believers their lifestyle deeds recorded by God. 5 golden crowns for righteusness, crown of life, crown of glory, the incorruptible crown, crown of rejoicing in the Lord.b8Gold star standard reward is based on a trial of enduring ‘fire’ process as Daniel and friends were tested in fire survived with Jesus. Jesus decides who is faithful so rewards believer’s shared testimony. Each reward level is compared to gold standard, silver, precious stones like the Olympic gold medals a person gets what they deserve by their hard work in life. Believer’s life work merits gold, silver, according to the record books of God. So a reward is compared to other precious stones like diamonds, rubies, sapphires as God decides based on assessment of their lifestyle history and faithfulness. Precious stones put through fire often produce the best quality priceless most durable treasures. A believer’s work is tested in fire check if merits high level precious stones quality or is chaff. firegoldstonesGood works of gold, silver and precious stone last as John 15:16 says in the Bible God ordains believer appointed, chosen to bear fruit that will remain. Paul said he ran the race to win as the disciples of Jesus do, saving others so did not want to be lost or left behind. Prayers of soul winners is their fruit will last to remain rooted and grounded in Christ eternally saved to receive respective rewards. So believers then can ask God for anything  within the WILL of God. God chose the belivers appointed to bear good fruit and for fruits to remain. So trees not bearing good fruits accordinly then God cuts off, prunes branches to divert nourishment to healthy viable plants and all grafted in. Some fruits do not remain as drawn away by own lusts or cares of the world. Like wood, hay, straw, stubble, burns in fire combusting too quickly so is not fire retardant or resistant. God’s Consuming fire puts believer’s works to test so good works last but others burn so does not last. Like parable of sower, seed on good soil grow 100% but others get lost or fall away by snares, cares or worries of the world. God’s Mercy, Compassion saves sower whose fault it is not when some believers drift off like the prodigal son. Freewill means some leave God, Ezekiel 3:33 and 33:7 says if believers saves soul his blood is not demanded from them. If believers refuse to save a soul his blood will be accounted for to God for a lost soul. God knows those ministered but if rejects God and soul lost believer’s work tried in fire receives a reward because such lost blood is not demanded by God. Therefore a believer remains saved in God’s Presence in heaven despite loss. It confirms what Jesus said that some use His Name in vain so He rejects them for falling short of Glory of God. No reward is given except God’s wrath sending lost into hellfire for gnashing of teeth.gold-silver-stones-fireSo Judgement starts in the House of God during Rapture those in Christ qualify so rescued from great tribulation way of escape to go to heaven. Jesus intercedes at the Right Hand of God on behalf of all believers to remain faithful to endure to the end so saved as His Chosen jewels. God so loved the world HE GAVE HIS ONLY SON Jesus Who died to set free all from sins and condemnation. Jesus after death and His resurrection visited and encouraged apostles, disciples, believers to reassure He is praying for them. But Jesus draws the line against those who totally reject God forever by not wasting time to cast pearls before swine. Those who reject God Jesus warns that if they do not repent they have no reward but REJECTION in return by God. John 17:9 says penalty of rejection of God is Jesus not praying for the world anymore after proving He is Messiah and Son of God Raised from death, healed the sick, did miracles, saved souls, raised the dead and fed thousands many times before ascension He told disciples to continue in the faith. But those still in the world not convinced He is Messiah unless all repent there is no more hope for them. Jesus continues to pray specifically for His disciples those saved He loves to be protected from evil viles. Jesus said in Mathew 24:24 if elect are not discerning can be deceived, as the rest world of the world who reject him forever, cannot be saved even if prayed for by Jesus they have reprobate minds. Like wood, hay and stubble burns forever despite time devoted for years to minister to help them but believer is rewarded by Jesus. All who prefer the world and things of the world burn forever in hell fire and their assets burn like wood straw hay or stubble. The material things confidence is put in life burns like wood, hay, straw, stubble to chaff ashes in God’s unquenchable fire without rewards.e0638f16bea1d1e3180d3f514774f661--the-day-for-the Jesus rewards faithful with gold, silver, precious stones but others in Romans 1, their rebellious destructive freewill God allows them to deceive themselves by a reprobate mind. Such prefer to honour creatures more than Creator God and so endorse rebellion against the church of God in Christ. God warns them Jesus is even at the door so cannot tolerate any longer those that choose to reject God. During evangelism powerful instruction given is test the spirit to discern if they are of God. Avoid time wasters sent to distract reaching precious souls whose last chance it may to be saved before passing on. God’s Word is the Seed sown and different soils represent people but God’s Holy Spirit Nurtures for Spiritual growth through watering and sunshine. This principle enables Jesus to decide if the believer’s duty of agape love or care for lost souls was gold standard, not to blame them for lost souls. God knows as HE records those who qualify for God’s Kingdom Life. The required Wisdom of God to ministers for lost is to depend on prayers of intercession and dedication. Many are lost even in church as Joyce Meyer says living in a garage does not make you a car. God before foundation of earth preordained those predisposed to salvation and those who chose to side with fallen angels against God. So keep up prayer and trust God that your fruits remain. The Bible says, God appointed those Chosen to bear fruit and ask God for more souls in prayer for God’s Mercy to keep you, family, loved ones and to save backsliders and prodigals to return into Father God’s House in Lord Jesus’ Name quickly before it is too late. In the long-run God eliminates all who reject HIM forever from HIS HOLY CITY PRESENCE to hell based on HIS WORDS in BOOK of Remembrance in Malachi 3:16.
