He has sent me to proclaim release to the captives!

“THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD IS UPON ME, BECAUSE HE ANOINTED ME TO PREACH THE GOSPEL TO THE POOR. HE HAS SENT ME TO PROCLAIM RELEASE TO THE CAPTIVES, AND RECOVERY OF SIGHT TO THE BLIND, TO SET FREE THOSE WHO ARE OPPRESSED, TO PROCLAIM THE FAVORABLE YEAR OF THE LORD.” Luke4:19

for fear of the Jews.. John 7:13, John 20:19

the Jews, who both killed the Lord Jesus and the prophets…. 1Thes2:14-15

Wow, they were very afraid of “the Jews”.

Let’s look at this phrase, “the Jews”, metaphorically as referring to a major demonic spirit that controls antichrist religions,  in opposition to God, and NOT “literally” as in an ethnic people group or a culture. Let’s look at how this spiritually designated group spans centuries, many religions and nations, and it’s function of hurting and killing, and keeping people captive.
1. for fear of the Jews= the plotting, envious, murderous Pharisee religious leaders of Jesus’ time who wanted to maintain power and control. They loved death and hated Truth and desired to kill the Truth (ie Jesus and those who followed Him). They kept the people captive in bondage and fear. This is the satanically empowered force that is against Christ Jesus and all the saints.

2.for fear of the Jews= those greedy papal Church leaders of Holy Roman Empire Christendom who wanted Roman Empire power, wealth and dominion. They loved death and hated Truth and desired to kill Truth (ie Christians and anyone else who would not submit to their lies, power, authority and dominion). This is the group who instituted the Inquisitions, planned the killing Crusades of the middle ages and kept spiritual truth from the people, keeping them captive in bondage and fear. This is the same group who planned death for every person killed in the world wars. This group presents itself as Pious and Holy Christianity but is actually in satanic opposition to Christ and to the saints. This force is merely an extension of group 1.

3. for fear of the Jews= those modern religious Islamic Jihad leaders who want power and dominion. They feed lies to the people, making them captive to bondage, deception and fear. They love death and hate Truth and desire to kill everyone who will not submit to Islam, especially Christians. This is the same exact spirit as what exists in group 2. It is the same entity with a different culture, language, and geography. But it is the exact same thing. This force is merely an extension of groups 1 and 2.

All three are the same spirit of death, spanning many centuries and  manifesting in three world religions  (Judaism, Christianity, Islam) using them as a front, so to speak. Same spirit of killing, envy, lust for power, cruelty, torture, and spiritual bondage and captivity. It is a religious demonic spirit that hates God and people and loves to kill and destroy. It loves to hurt and lie and deceive and keep people captive.

This spirit keeps the world’s people in fear of being punished if they do not obey. This spirit also makes our brethren worldwide fear for their lives, for belonging to Jesus Christ. This evil spirit wants to kill and make everyone captive and submit to their self-appointed Dominionist power.

We are dealing with religious spiritual forces here. This is what we are dealing with:  “we wrestle not against flesh….. but against rulers, powers, forces, principalities… rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” Eph.6:12

But.

“THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD IS UPON ME, BECAUSE HE ANOINTED ME TO PREACH THE GOSPEL TO THE POOR. HE HAS SENT ME TO PROCLAIM RELEASE TO THE CAPTIVES, AND RECOVERY OF SIGHT TO THE BLIND, TO SET FREE THOSE WHO ARE OPPRESSED,
TO PROCLAIM THE FAVORABLE YEAR OF THE LORD.”

Therefore, keep loving God and loving your neighbor. Continue keeping a soft heart of mercy, compassion, empathy and love, as Christ abides in you and you in Him.

Keep praying for the suffering saints who are persecuted. Keep loving and helping them in every practical way, meeting their needs, comforting, caring for, feeding and encouraging them however you are able.

Keep telling the truth of salvation and life in Jesus Christ to the world. Keep declaring and living His kingdom. Keep living the life and faith of Jesus Christ and making disciples. Proclaim release to the captives! And do not be afraid to speak openly of Him.

2 mothers contrasted

As one whom his mother comforts, so I will comfort you; you shall be comforted in Jerusalem. Is.66:13

As a mother comforts her child, so will I comfort you; and you will be comforted over Jerusalem.” Is.66:13 niv

The ironic and horrific reality is, that it is actually DominionistfakeChristianity that created DominionistfakeIsrael, both of which are antichrist (two factions of evil, a split personality so to speak) and both having the foundational core of pretended righteousness, fake holiness and claiming “representing God”, on the outside.

On the inside they together are that Babylonian, Talmudic, Christ-hating, saint hating, occultic, blood-lusting, satan worshipping coven that loves lying, deceiving, stealing, destroying and killing people. They claim “leadership”, publicly pretend “concern for fellow-man” while, as Babylon the Great (whore), mother of harlots, secretly being the keeper of “the deep things of satan”, are the originator of the abominations of the earth. (They promote spiritual deception and the outright acts of disobedience to the instructions and Truth of Jesus Christ).

Likewise, DominionistfakeIslam, which ALSO loves to kill, is also merely this mother’s (DominionistfakeChristianity) progeny and slave, created to serve in achieving the goals of their father the devil.

The irony is great… the self-declared paragons of “Bible truth” and godliness, (falseChristianity+fakeIsrael) are actually “that woman” the mother of harlots and abominations of the earth. This “mother” has no love. She is a conscienceless, compassion-less, loveless, raging psychopath. The Mother of Harlots: The ultimate abusive mother.

And they are “that woman”, (that mother), that mystery…..

BABYLON THE GREAT

THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS

AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH

Rev.17

….who is decked out to the 9s, reveling in her blood-lust, practicing witchcraft, counting her riches, drunk on killing, and riding that scarlet beast.

They are the synagogue of satan. The ultimate irony.

Meanwhile the Lord, Jesus Christ is going around rescuing each one of the helpless,  “least of these” little lost sheep which perch on the thin ledge in sorrow and terror. He rescues them. He brings them into His arms, holding them close in compassion, comforting them in their hurt and distress. They find safety in Him, and love. He brings all these little ones comfort, care, protection and compassion. He carries them, holds them gently, feeds and nurtures them.  Lord Jesus Christ our Beloved God: the ultimate good and loving mother.

not fitting in

So, as those who have been chosen of God, holy and beloved, put on a heart of compassion, Col.3:12

I know everyone just wants to have fun. Here is a hard word: life in Christ is not about “having fun”. That is not why we are here on this planet, as ambassadors and witnesses of the Kingdom of God. I know, I’m “no fun”. I realize that.

I do love life: i love nature, birds, trees, flowers, gardens, feeding people, talking to people, making things pretty, writing, and being useful. Did i mention I love babies. I love music and art and mountains and beaches. I love the fall season, the leaves, the weather, the crisp air. I like the beautiful things God has created. He created people. He is redeeming people. He gives grace, mercy and love to people.

That is why i do not like Halloween. I do not think there is anything to “celebrate”. Halloween in fact makes me sad. Why do i not “have fun” with it? Because i am not a pagan anymore, as i once was. ( I know what and who Halloween is meant to honor.) And because i care about people. People get taken, hurt, raped, tortured and ritually killed. That hurts my heart. It makes me hurt. I have feelings of empathy and compassion for those who have been ritually abused, and for those who have been killed. I hurt for them. Some of them I know (the survivors). I have respect for them and care about them. I am sad for them, I hurt for them. This makes me “no fun” on Halloween. I have been in a witchcraft satanic place of worship. Yes, built for this purpose. For torture and killing and worship of the god of this world. I can no longer “have fun” with Halloween.

But Jesus came to rescue from death. And that He does. He rescues lost sheep. God rescues from the domain of darkness and transfers them to the Kingdom of His beloved Son. He cares about them. I was one He rescued. I now want to care about people like He does. I want to join Him in rescuing the sheep. My flesh does not want to follow Jesus into this level of love….. my flesh would rather have “fun” and of course I’d like to be accepted as “normal” by everyone I know in Evangelical Christianity. My flesh wants to be “accepted” and to “fit in” and be “normal”….. but Jesus leads me by the Spirit, further away from my flesh. Yes it hurts. It feels like death. And it is. To my flesh, my “self”. But the real life, LIFE IN CHRIST! Christ’s life, is worth it all. Lord Jesus, help us all die to ourselves, and live YOUR LIFE, in your power, sacrificially, in love and compassion, for the others.

SF Outreach ’10

Tamara (on R) witnessing at Civic Center

I’m thankful I could go out this year for the annual SOS outreach in SF and Berkeley, (July 16-24) to work with other believers, bringing the gospel to the lost sheep. I did not get many pictures of the people on our team this year though. I mostly took pictures of some of the people we shared the gospel with– they (the people) are all so beautiful and I wait with joyful anticipation to someday know what shall become of the seeds that were sown. Let me know if this link does not work; I’ll post more pics.

Street church: After the Bibles were given out, the conversations ended and the gospel proclaiming was done, worship with song and music finished the outreach. These two were walking by, stopped, sat on their suitcases and joined with us. Praising the Lord with reverence and joy!

People in my Neighborhood

Michelle lives on the sidewalk between her shopping cart and the shrubs. In that spot, she sleeps sitting up, with her knees drawn up to her chest, blankets over her head. She is afraid to live in the shelter; something very bad happened there once. She wants to live alone, on her own. She is afraid of people. That is, until she decides you are safe. She likes Chinese fried rice, Coke and People magazine. She has been living like this for many years. She is the same age as me.

A certain man spends all day, every day, hanging out in the front of the liquor store. He does not buy booze, he just spends every day “living” there. He talks to himself all day, and wears the same exact thing every day: army boots and pants, flight jacket, baseball cap and dark glasses. He goes home at night. Every day, there he is again, in the same place, talking to invisible people.

Sometimes a drug deal goes down on my street right near my house. The car turns the corner, slows to a stop, a bicycle rides up, the trade is made, and they go off in different directions. I haven’t had the chance to meet these neighbors yet; they drive off too fast.

Bill lives in a 40 year old Volkswagen van, parked on a street. It is set up like a tiny little studio apartment. His foot is in a fabric cast and he walks with a limp; it is taking a long time to heal. He’s dressed in rags. He is just trying to make it through each day.

Ralph is disabled and you will find him traveling all over our neighborhood in his fully loaded, high power motorized wheelchair, which doubles as his home on wheels. It’s easy to spot him at a distance with the sock flag on a tall stick announcing, “RALPH”, and his well stocked red wagon in tow. He goes around giving out hard candy and a cheerful word to all he meets.

There’s a woman one street over. The man she used to be married to beat her pretty bad: she is disfigured. Now she’s a recovering addict. She looks like she is 20 years older than she really is. Her voice is ragged sounding; she sounds tough, but she is very friendly.

Dozens of men from Mexico and Central America line both sides of one street, hoping to get hired for the day. They stand around in groups talking all day, unless someone picks them up. They are hoping for work because most of them have wives and children to support.

At the Mexican market and around the main grocery store, I always see Joseph, who spends his days riding around on his bicycle, planting tracts that promote the worship of the Roman Catholic Mary.

At the Arabic market I met a young mother with her two beautiful preschoolers. She recently moved from the Middle East since her husband got a job here. Right now she is observing Ramadan.

“And the master said to the slave, ‘Go out into the highways and along the hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled.’ ” Luke 14:23.
