March 5, 2012 – Spiritual Warfare Basics part 1

Romans 8:31-39 (NKJV) 31What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? 32He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things? 33Who shall bring a charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies. 34Who is he who condemns? It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us.

35Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? 36As it is written: “For Your sake we are killed all day long; We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.” 37Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.

38For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, 39nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

So, my question is – how’s that working out for you?

Do you feel victorious?

If not, why not?

For some strange reason we think that just because we became Believers in Yeshua/Jesus everything is supposed to be perfect and there are no struggles.  Scripturally that is the furthest thing from the Truth.  Scripture tells us we are going to have struggles, trials and tribulations in this World.

John 16:33 (NKJV) 33These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”

“In the world you WILL HAVE TRIBULATION…”

Let’s look a different version of that scripture – John 16:33 (NLT) 33I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.”

According to that we will have MANY trials and sorrows.  The Promise is that He will give us peace during those difficult times; a peace that makes no sense because it goes beyond natural reason and understanding (Philippians 4:7).

A peace that comes from now that you know but WHO you know!

We know from The Bible that the instigator of these worldly trials and sorrows is satan and his angels.  Since Genesis Chapter 3 the enemy of our souls has made it his eternal obsession to bring confusion, deception and calamity into the perfection that the Father intended.  Their goal is to make sure we do not live the life intended for us.  However, it’s up to us to make a choice to walk in the victory given to us on Calvary while we wait for The Lord to come back and finish the good work He began in the world and in us.

How do we do that?

If we know that the supernatural enemy we have has power over the things of the world and therefore over the things of our flesh we must first realize that the war cannot be won from a natural or fleshly perspective.

2 Corinthians 10:3-6 ( NKJV ) 3For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh.  4For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds,  5casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ,  6and being ready to punish all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled.

The motto for SRT, the Supernatural Response Team is “supernatural problems need a Supernatural Solution”.  It’s a succinct to the point explanation of what we do and how we do it.  And, it applies to all supernatural problems.

The title of this blog is “spiritual warfare basics” so let’s keep it simple and stick with the basics of spiritual warfare.

2 Corinthians 10:2-6 ( KJV ) 2But I beseech you, that I may not be bold when I am present with that confidence, wherewith I think to be bold against some, which think of us as if we walked according to the flesh.  3For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh:  4(For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)  5Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;  6And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled.

Paul is clearly telling us that although we live in the natural world, our battle is with a supernatural one.  Natural power has no effect against Satan and his kingdom.  And, whatever power we do have is not mighty or strong because of us or anything we do.  They are mighty because of our relationship and reconciliation with God the Father through His Son, Yeshua/Jesus.  This relationship indicates an implied authority like a police officer who has the ability to enforce the law because a higher power or authority has delegated to them the right to do so.  We have been delegated authority from the Highest Power and that dispensation allows us to do what He did as He did it for the reasons He did it.

That strength which has been given to us by the Lord Himself allows us to pull down strongholds of power that the enemy has created in us, our lineage and in our geographic surroundings.  The word “stronghold” means a place that is fortified or easily defended and it also means a concentrated area where a particular group or activity is established.

Spiritual Strongholds can be both external and internal.  They can be personal and geographical.  All of these will have an effect on our lives and the way that life is lived.  Sometimes, in very demonically bound situations, all of these strongholds have to be attacked and defeated simultaneously to release the victim from all demonic control or influence.  From that point onward the freedom must be enforced and protected by continuing to live in the manner instructed in the Life Instruction Manual – The Bible.  Any variation in the instructions will only allow the enemy to regain a foothold in our lives and negate the freedom given to us.  And, many times we have to get victory over internal strongholds before the external ones will fall.  We cannot live an outwardly victorious life when inwardly was are in turmoil and bondage.

The next area of power given to us in the supernatural war is to “cast down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God”.

The Old King James Version calls arguments imaginations.

If you read between the lines and see the implications of the wording you will see that this authority is over Satan himself and his kingdom of fallen angels and demonic spirits.

Now, before all the spiritual warfare critics get in an uproar, I will state that this authority is in and through the Name and Person of Jesus Christ, Yeshua HaMashiach, King of kings and Lord of lords.  However, once this authority had been delegated to us (Matthew 28:18-20, Mark 16:15-18)  and we are taught to move in it we must do so with confidence and without hesitation.

I will expound upon this tomorrow in Part 2 and go into greater detail for those who are uncomfortable with this topic.

It’s not good to war in the dark so we are leaving the LIGHT on!

March 2, 2012 – The Sounds of Silence

What if they could find a way to silence you in mid speech?  What if someone, say an outspoken conservative who was rallying people to their viewpoint needed to be silenced without unexpectedly dying?

They’ve found a way to do just that.

Japan invents speech-jamming gun that silences people mid-sentence

Mind control is not enough in a day and age when the digital media gives so many venues for “free speech”.  Until they are able to shut down the freedom of the Internet, something the U.N. actively wants control over, there will always be someone offering a differing opinion.  Having secret weapons of mind control won’t be enough.

There must be someone or something that says “Silence Please!”

Ah, the Sounds of Silence!!

I’d say let those who have ears to hear hear but….mmpph… 😉

Leaving the LIGHT on!

March 1, 2012 – In the Days of Deception

Benjamin Franklin said “Believe none of what you hear and half of what you see.”

Unless of course it comes from Mainstream Media and then throw it all out! We are living in a time of great deception and manipulation on every level – natural & supernatural.

Benjamin Franklin was reported to being an occultist and a Mason.  The History Channel did a story about his involvement in the Hellfire Club, a secret society that conducted black masses and orgies. These bizarre, occult practices are still going on today in secret societies like the Bohemian Grove.

Who controls the past, controls the future: who controls the present, controls the past.  (from ‘1984’) George Orwell

Who controls how we perceive the “truth”?  The Mainstream Media (MSM).

Case in point – the Oklahoma City Bombing.  The facts bring more questions then they do answers.  So, why is that being ignored?

What about what happened at Waco, Texas with the Branch Davidians?  When I first watched this story on the news February 28, 1993 it told me the story the MSM (and government) wanted me to hear.  Once I saw this documentary I had more questions then answers.  I also saw it as a “test case” to see how far our rights could be violated in the name of “national security”

I use these older stories because of how much information is out there about them.  The Siege at Ruby Ridge ties directly to Waco as the same military sniper reported to be at Waco was at Ruby Ridge.  The same sniper reported to have shot an unarmed Vicky Weaver in the head was reported to be at Waco and shooting the men, women and children as they fled the burning building.  Again, all of this is “speculation” and no government report or agency has confirmed these allegations.  But, then again, why would they?

Some of you reading this will bring up the conspiracy theories about 9-11 and the Twin Towers.  Why aren’t I mentioning them?  If we did not care before and the media then ignored the past, why will we as a people care now with the MSM we have now?!

 The United States is unusual among the industrial democracies in the rigidity of the system of ideological control — indoctrination, we might say — exercised through the mass media.

By Noam Chomsky

Another story from the 1980’s that ties to similar activities, including Administration misinformation and dancing around the truth, being enacted today is the activity in Mena, Arkansas.

Mena Connection: Compromised: Clinton, Bush and the CIA, Drug smuggling

So, why list all of these “old news” stories?  If we do not learn from history we are doomed to repeat it.

All of this has happened before, and it will all happen again.  Peter Pan

The sun has been shining brightly in these days of deception since the dawn of time and most certainly since the 1960’s.  So, what makes you think it’s not happening now?

That which has been is what will be,
That which is done is what will be done,
And there is nothing new under the sun.

We will be living in the days of deception until the Return of The King!

When that happens the only thing shining will be Him!

Until He returns we are leaving the LIGHT on!

February 29, 2012 Looking, leaping, what am I seeing

Well, today is one of those rare leap year days of February 29th.

Leap year: why we have a need for the occasional Feb. 29

I’ve always wondered if you are born on this day does that mean you don’t have birthdays in the other three years?  That would mean you only celebrate every 4th birthday.  A mother in Orlando can figure that out with her newborn daughter.  In a one in a million — or one in 2.1 million chance, to be more precise, Shaneka Hinton and her new baby Christina can figure it out.  BOTH will have leap year birthdays!

Alien calendars would probably include leap year – you can’t make this stuff up!

And, once we get back to a normal calendar look at what we have in store for us:

Above-Normal Tornado Amounts Expected in 2012

Predictions for 2012– (not a Christian site) The Web Bot predictions: The Web Bot Project, developed in the late 1990’s has predictions for 2012. It was created to assist in making stock market predictions. The technology uses a system of spiders to crawl the internet and search for keywords, much like a search engine does. When a keyword is located, the bot program takes a snapshot of the text preceding and following the keyword. This snapshot of text is sent to a central location where it is then filtered to define meaning.

One of the first accurate predictions from the bot program took place in June of 2001. Before they found pridictions for 2012, the program predicted that a life altering event would take place within the next 60-90 days, an occurrence of such proportion that it’s effects would be felt worldwide. The program based its prediction on “web chatter” which ultimately represents the collective unconscious of society.  Regrettably, the bot program’s prediction proved accurate and the Twin Towers fell on 9/11/2001.  Web Bot prediction for 2012? The bot program also predicts a worldwide calamity taking place in the year 2012.

In case you don’t know about the Web bot program:

SETI Claims Three Giant Spaceships Headed Towards Earth– arrival date?  End of 2012!  Three giant spaceships are heading towards Earth. The largest one of them is 240 kilometers wide, while the other two are smaller. At present, the objects are beyond the orbit of Pluto.  The spaceships were detected by the HAARD search system. The system, based in Alaska, was designed to study the phenomenon of northern lights. According to SETI researchers, the objects are nothing but extraterrestrial spaceships. They will be visible in optical telescopes as soon as they reach Mars’s orbit. The US government is well aware about the event. Researchers have calculated the ships will reach Earth at the end of 2012.

ALIEN SPACESHIPS TO ATTACK EARTH IN NOVEMBER 2012!

2012 BIBLE PROPHECIES– Let’s see how many come true!

January, 2012 – A comet will pass so close to Earth that temperatures will hit 140 degrees in some countries.  The event will cause panic among millions more who will think the world is about to end.

February, 2012 – As a result, all the countries of the world will come together in peace and form a single government to repair the damage.  (I suspect this book won’t sell after tomorrow!)

April, 2012  Unrest will begin to undermine the world government and the friction will worsen over the next four years.

May, 2012 – aliens from another planet will try to restore peace in the world

November, 2012 –  A true Christian will be elected President of the United States.

December, 2012 – An angel will come to Earth and warn mankind to prepare for the End Times. But few will listen. Most will believe it’s a hoax.

2013 – A temporary peace on earth, with aliens guiding humans.

2014– Finally, an evil leader (a human) will emerge and lead a band of rebels in an attempt to overthrow the government and the aliens. The resulting civil war will be fought with nuclear weapons.

The war will escalate and rage out of control. Late in the year, bombs will destroy the Earth!

Jesus will return. (Probably the only one he gets right! 🙂

Okay, removing the tongue from inside my cheek…..I’m telling you, you can’t make this stuff up and don’t have to.

You know right about now, the whole LEAP YEAR thing doesn’t sound so bad!

After reading all of this stuff you probably want us to leave the LIGHT on!

February 28, 2012 – Ball of Confusion

So, round and around and around we go,
Where the world’s headed, nobody knows

Ball of confusion,

That’s what the world is today, hey.

 

While the lyrics may be dated the message behind this song is not.

I read a lot of web sites, blogs and information every morning to see what is going on out there and depending upon who you read we are okay, doomed, safe, unsafe, America is coming into God’s Glory, America has lost God’s Glory (my belief), Obama is the Messiah, Obama is the Antichrist, Elvis is dead, Elvis is alive, Elvis is the Antichrist, the Illuminati killed Whitney, Whitney killed Whitney, God took Whitney, Whitney slept with the Antichrist (OMG that’s makes Bobby Brown the Antichrist), the Pope is good, the Pope is bad, the Pope is the Antichrist (but people think he’s nice), ET’s coming home, he doesn’t have to phone, he’s your father mother & brother and the Antichrist too, UFOs putting on a show how is it nobody knows, DNA (Deoxyribonucleic acid/Do Not Attempt) in book being sold on a Raiders of Your Wallet website near you, Bird flu Pig flu Bat flu, who knew and the Band played on. (Shipping & Handling not included)

YIKES!

Jane,

how do you

stop this crazy thing?!

Meditate on These Things

Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things.

Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth.

The Race of Faith

12 Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

Still confused?  Just in case, leaving the LIGHT on!

February 27, 2012 – All the glitters is not gold

Last night the Academy Awards took place in Hellywood.  The line that put the entire event into perspective was from host Billy Crystal:

Tonight, enjoy yourselves, because nothing can take the sting out of the world’s economic problems like watching millionaires present each other with golden statues.”

Ecclesiastes 1:2 (NKJV)

“Vanity[Absurdity, Frustration, Futility, Nonsense] of vanities,” says the Preacher;
“Vanity of vanities, all is vanity.”

King Solomon knew about gold, women and parties!

The absurdity of the moment comes down to this – the separation between the haves and the have not in this World expands while we slide further away from a Divine moral compass.  For some bizarre diabolical reason we have allowed Hellywood to become our moral compass and to blaze a spotlight on a “red carpet” that leads to destruction.

Matthew 7:13-14 (NKJV)

13 “Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. 14 Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.

There was a time when I believed that someone with the right morals, spiritual beliefs and boldness to proclaim them could use the Hellywood system to shine the Light.  However, after many years of kicking at a door that did not want what I had to offer I had to let go of those goals and dreams.  When I did, I realized the obvious – to play on the Devil’s playground you have to play by his rules and even more so, he had to pick you to play!

All that glisters is not gold;
Often have you heard that told:
Many a man his life hath sold
But my outside to behold:
Gilded tombs do worms enfold.
Had you been as wise as bold,
Young in limbs, in judgement old
Your answer had not been inscroll’d
Fare you well, your suit is cold. – Merchant of Venice; William Shakespeare

Panning for gold often results in finding pyrite (fool’s gold) which reflects more light than authentic gold does. Gold in its raw form appears dull and does not glitter.

Having seen and held an Oscar while visiting a friend in Beverly Hills I can tell you two things – they are not all they seem to be and they fade over time – very much like the award itself.  It truly is a “fool’s gold”!

As the World plunges toward some sort of cataclysmic event and our economy sinks like the Titanic, the fleshly arrogance of the rich & well to do who party while the boat sinks remains the same.

J.R.R. Tolkien gave us a poem with a different perspective in his fantasy novel, The Lord of the Rings.

All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.

Revelation 3:18 (NKJV)

18 I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, that you may be rich; and white garments, that you may be clothed, that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed; and anoint your eyes with eye salve, that you may see.

Let those who have ears hear, hear….until then we are leaving the LIGHT on for the Return of THE KING!

February 24, 2012 – Falling from the skies

Henny Penny, also known as Chicken Licken or Chicken Little, is a fable in the form of a cumulative tale about a chicken who believes the world is coming to an end. The phrase The sky is falling! features prominently in the story, and has passed into the English language as a common idiom indicating a hysterical or mistaken belief that disaster is imminent.

Maybe it’s not such a fable!

On January 1, 2012 I was sitting outside during my devotions when I saw this picture.

I posted it on Facebook and Twitter.  Reports came from Florida to Canada of seeing such trails in the sky all on the same day.  Right after that I got a sinus infection that took weeks to clear.  Reports of an outbreak of similar sicknesses came from all along the Eastern Seaboard with a flu pandemic soon to follow.  Then in February 2012 this story hit the headlines- Tourette’s-like disorder in New York school confounds experts.

Sky actually falling, report scientists

Amateur cameraman captures stunning glowing cloud in the skies over Russia

Chemtrails 911

Contrails (Chemicals) – look up and see what’s raining down on you!

Bill Gates exposed for funding research, promotion of spraying geo-engineered ‘chemtrails’ across globe

The Fireballs of February

The Changing Face of Chemtrails & HAARP

But, so what, it’s only Chicken Little giving a false report and fear mongering.  Nothing is really going on up there is it?

You decide.

Skies falling?  LIGHT is on!
