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.

voluntary

The people will volunteer freely in the day of Thy power.. Psalm110

But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you. And you will be my witnesses… Acts1:8

Going to baseball games (Masonic “philosophy of life” metaphor rituals) and football games (pagan “sex” metaphor ceremonies) is currently voluntary. Voting is voluntary. Going to Church is voluntary. Pledging allegiance to the flag is voluntary. Watching TV shows like the satanic “Superbowl halftime show” is voluntary.

What if they started coming around like they did in the 1st century, with mobile altars where you had to pledge allegiance and declare loyalty to say, the pope, or the USA, the president/king/dictator, the UN Charter, the Agenda 21, the global one world federation, Humanity, the Earth(Gaia), the gods, the new Earth Constitution (Global Law), the New Global Moral Commandments(Global Religion), or something like that?

What if tossing in the incense and saying, “ceasar is lord”, or something to that effect via modern means, was reinstated? What if this act proved a person’s committment to world peace and security? What if they said it proved allegiance to the “god” of the global government or global religion? What if it were required of every person, not voluntary? Are we prepared spiritually today, right now if need be, like they were in the first and second century Roman Empire?

The witnesses thru time since the giving of Christ’s promised Holy Spirit power, were volunteers. Because of love for Christ, they voluntarily chose to make their witness for Him. They voluntarily chose to say “no” to demonstrations of loyalty to this world system, and “yes” to demonstrations of loyalty to Christ Jesus. Their witness was voluntary, motivated by love. Their power to be witnesses was from the Holy Spirit.

Now you voluntarily choose to say ’no’ to demonstrations of loyalty to other gods and the kingdoms of this world. Now you voluntarily choose to demonstrate your love and loyalty to Christ and His Kingdom, which is not of this world.

That great cloud of witnesses from Hebrews 12:1 is not only a past event, describing only ancient saints from two thousand years ago.

How sweet that Jesus has spoken many words to us, and continues to speak to us through the Holy Spirit, to prepare us for our own part in the great drama. As you take your voluntary active and verbal stand for loyalty to Jesus Christ and His Kingdom, you become a witness. As a witness of Jesus Christ, you too become part of that great cloud.

heed not the motivation of fear

Hear My voice, I am the True Shepherd of the sheep, the thief comes to kill and destroy, but he comes as an angel of light!  from John10 and 2Cor11

I accepted an invitation from my girl friend, to go to a Christian conference at a Church building. I went because I wanted to spend time with her, and hear news of the suffering saints. I was given liberty from the Lord, to go, to hear what was being said these days, to Christian people at Church.

It was the VOM regional conference; the subject was persecuted believers in communist and Muslim countries. There were videos, pictures, testimonies
of these saints, and stories the speakers told, of their lives and suffering. I am always glad to hear of them, it is a sweetness and bittersweetness at the same time, the believers in hostile lands are so dear and sweet, but it is so sad, their suffering. I wanted to participate in remembering them, and learning of their plight.

But there were some things I noticed that grieved me. I really went, with an open heart, assuming the best, hoping and trusting I would not hear anything that would grieve me, but alas, I did. But I’m not surprised (though I’m saddened) because the Church System really is Babylon….. and she cannot be healed. Thus fleeing and forsaking her is the only way……. it’s not safe because the truth is tainted and muddied with bondage or lies (or both!).

The main speaker (from Iran) said all kinds of concerning things, though he is very eager to reach muslims in Iran as a missionary. Now he did report that many Iranians are coming to Christ and are assembling secretly, quietly in homes and such, and are doing a lot of evangelism. But this man defined the sharing the gospel as getting someone to “pray the prayer” for God or Jesus to “come into your heart”.  That was concerning.

He basically pushed for political and religious Dominionism in Iran. His words and style reminded me of Campus Crusade for Christ and YWAM, as far as the ministry catchphrases.

He boldly promoted the 7 Mountains Dominionism! That is where the 7 Mountains of society will be ruled by a cultural and political Christianity. He said Iran will become a Christian country!  He said 2 kingdoms are clashing and Islam is a spirit. But then he said, “You can’t come against it (the spirit of Islam) with the military, well sometimes you have to use the military.”

With that statement, he went against Jesus’ words and promoted war and killing “if it is necessary”.

Further, he said that we want to evangelize the muslims and convert them for these reasons:
1. because if not they will kill us all
2. because they want to take over the world and make every nation Muslim, (submit to Islam) thus we must stop them by converting more of them to Christianity.

This is NOT to be our motivation. His motivation was unfortunately pure FEAR— fear of being killed, fear of jihad, fear of being forced to submit to Islam, fear of our country being taken over, etc. This is NOT of Christ.
That attitude is the spirit of the Holy Roman Empire of Christendom, which wanted to preserve the culture, earthly kingdoms, lands and power holdings of State-Christianity (Christendom).   This is not of the Spirit. This is of earthly Churchianity or what we call Babylon Church.

The motivation he promoted, is the same motivation that sent men to the Crusades to kill and shed oceans of so-called infidel or heretic blood (Christian, Muslim and Jewish blood, and also pagans of other indigenous local religions). This motivation is satanic, it is not of Love, it is not of Faith, it is not of Hope. It is not loving God and loving neighbor. It is pure fear, and determination to hold on to what we “have in this world” (lands, nations, freedoms, rights, our lives, our culture etc). This is not of Jesus Christ who told us to die to self, follow Him and make disciples.

The man did promote evangelism and making disciples, but for the wrong motivation, not out of obedience to Christ, not out of love for God and people, and not out of gratitude to our beloved Christ Jesus for our salvation, not out of compassion for the lost, not out of the willingness to die if need be, not to serve others and love enemies, to give to others, like Christ gave to us.

So his message of what motivates us to reach Muslims, was entirely political and carnal, fear based and worldly. And it feeds into satan’s plan to get us warring and killing, (Christians and Muslims) that the synthesis/ solution of world government and global syncretic religion might be implemented as the solution for world peace. Political-military Dominionist Christianity is being used right now to help this global plan along.

So the man was either knowingly or unknowingly (we don’t know) helping the plans of the wrong side, so to speak, rather than encouraging us: to NOT FEAR and LOVE NOT YOUR LIFE and LAY DOWN YOUR LIFE FOR ANOTHER, and to LOVE UNTIL YOU DIE in your service of bringing Christ to the lost world WITH JOY AND HUMBLE TRUST IN THE LORD. We do not try to save our life, lifestyle, limb, culture or physical nation. We lay it down, and love like our Father loves.

I would have been so edified to hear that from this Christian Leader.

The teacher  taught that the motivation (to try to convert them) is:
1. because of terrorism growing
2. because they want to take over nations and plan to take over all nations including USA
3. because Islam is the greatest threat to the world, to world peace.
4. because Islam wants to wipe (political-geographical) “Israel” off the map.  Yes he said this. This motivation seems entirely fleshly, earthly and political.

Then he said: Iran will be a Christian nation! Christianity will rule the (7 Mountains) business, government, family, religion, media, education, entertainment (the 7 mountains exactly as taught by Bill Bright and Loren Cunningham!). There you go folks, straight up Dominionism.

He said, The future of Iran and Israel are united! He had scripture to back this up. He was quite serious that he meant this literally, in the physical-political. !!

He said, over 25,000 documented “decisions” for Christ. (This sounds identical to Billy Graham and CCC).

His definition of sharing the gospel, shown repeatedly over his speech, was leading ppl in prayer for God to come into your heart. Salvation was praying “the prayer”.

He taught that 9 11 was done by muslims. He showed pictures of the “twin towers” in a ball of flames and other scary pictures.
He had a lot of power point pics and charts that fanned the flames of “fear of Muslims”,  and reiterated that the main reason for his evangelism was to hold back the tide of Islam and prevent them from ruling nations.  weird. This is not the motivation Jesus gives us.

Also, this statement, “You can’t come against it (the spirit of Islam) with the military, well sometimes you have to use the military”,
is a statement that reveals an unstable DOUBLE-MINDEDness.

It’s either one or the other.

We either obey Jesus Christ’s instructions and love our enemies, and war in the Spirit with Holy Spirit power against principalities (spirits), OR we war in the flesh with physical war machine weapons, against flesh (literal physical men).

One or the other.

The Earthly Church has no qualms promoting warring in the flesh, and killing enemies. “Fight the enemies and kill your neighbor.”

The spiritual church, those led by Jesus, does what Jesus says:  “Love your neighbor, love your enemy.”

Babylon Church has lied for far too long to the Christians, about this. It does mislead the sheep.

It is a lie that it is “God’s will” that we as Christians must war and kill in the flesh in order to survive or take out the enemy or save the country or Christendom or take back the ‘Holy Land’ for God.

Let God (JESUS) be true, and every man a liar.

I have heard this also, on Christian “God N Country” Crawford Broadcasting and Salem Communications radio stations, back when I used to listen to them. I heard very clear messages of “fear of Muslims” and promotion of politics and “war and killing” being necessary to deal with this scary “greatest threat” to us.  This is not of the instructional words of Jesus, nor of the Spirit of Jesus.

Dear friends, let us encourage one another in this time, to heed the voice of our Shepherd Jesus and do what He says, doing the will of our Father.

Let us not operate in the flesh, but in His Power.

Let us not live because of fear but because of Love.

Beautiful wheat

“Should we pull out the weeds?” they asked.”No”, he replied, “you’ll uproot the wheat if you do.” Matt.13nlt

The tares have no fear or regard for the Master they claim to serve; they are disobedient to the words of Christ. They proudly pull up and kill the wheat, thinking they do service to God by killing ‘tares’. The real tares are ugly because they disobey the Lord they claim to serve, killing the precious wheat of God.

The wheat have respect for their Lord and Master; they are obedient to the words of Christ. They do not pull up and kill the tares, but they are the ones killed by the tares. They suffer like Jesus and wait for the harvest with obedience and humility and love and trust. Beautiful wheat.

living in the Repeat

Saying, Behold, we go up to Jerusalem; and the Son of man shall be delivered unto the chief priests, and unto the scribes; and they shall condemn him to death, and shall deliver him to the Gentiles: And they shall mock him, and shall scourge him, and shall spit upon him, and shall kill him: and the third day he shall rise again. Mark 10:33-34

Yes this thing is on “Repeat”.

->OT Israel– the faithful remnant and the unfaithful harlot: and the Judgment of God upon His apostate people, via the Assyrians/Chaldeans.

->Jesus’ life—- the (Christ-rejecting)Religious Establishment working with the Roman Empire Leaders to kill those in the opposing Kingdom (Jesus and His people).

->First century believers—- under the pagan Caesars of Rome who also killed those in the opposing Kingdom.

->Middle ages Christians under the combined “Church-State Holy Roman Government Pope Empire” (with the inquisition) who worked as one to kill those in the opposing Kingdom.

->1400-1500’s persecution of believers who followed Jesus outside the State Churches, who killed (by the power of the State) believers who would not submit their allegiance to those kingdoms.

Prepare yourself — you are living in the repeat.

Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord

“Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.
And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours; and their works do follow them.” Rev.14

God bless all those who simply wanted to follow Jesus  according to their understanding of scripture and the leading of the Spirit, and their conscience, without having to submit their faith, conscience and actions as a Christian, to kings and popes AND Protestant Leaders………down through the ages… and were defriended, de-Churched, disenfranchised, excommunicated, banished, verbally crucified and physically killed for it– by Catholics and Protestants Reformers. Their reward is with Jesus. My love goes out to them all.

God bless you, dear Protestant person on Facebook who just defriended me, for mentioning that Protestant Reformers also killed people, killed the saints! Yes i love the true saints down thru the dark ages under the Roman Catholic Church who were martyred for Jesus, AND Protestant believers who were killed by the Roman Catholic Church AND also the Christian believers who chose not to be Protestants, who were not part of the “Reformation”, who wanted to follow Jesus, and were persecuted and killed by the Catholics– and the Protestants! Love to them all.

Courage to Witness: James the Just

Witness to the Religious Establishment

When he was not encouraging and instructing believers, he was witnessing to the unbelieving Religious Establishment. But the Religious Establishment wanted James to shut up! They could not stand the power and truth of his preaching! The chief priest, scribes and Pharisees demanded that he shut up and renounce the truth that Jesus is the Son of God. He dared to tell the truth and was thus charged with breaking their law (blasphemy!). They then gave James one more chance to deny Jesus before throwing him off the temple to be stoned and killed below. Enraged were the enemies of Christ when, filled with the power of the Holy Spirit, James declared to them with boldness that Jesus is the promised Messiah, the Son of God, the Saviour, that he is sitting at the right hand of God, and shall come again in the clouds of heaven, to judge the living and the dead!

Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love him. James 1:12


Courage to Witness: Those Scattered

The witness of The Persecuted

And on that day a great persecution arose against the church in Jerusalem; and they were all scattered throughout the regions of Judea and Samaria, except the apostles. Acts8:1

Therefore those who had been scattered went about preaching the word. Acts8:4

And the hand of the Lord was with them, and a large number who believed turned to the Lord. Acts11:21

Courage to Witness: Stephen

Witness to the Religious Establishment

The Religious Establishment wanted Stephen to shut up! They did not want to hear God’s Word or Truth. They could not stand the wisdom and Spirit with which he was speaking. They stirred up the people, elders and scribes against him; they came and seized him and brought him before the council. Stephen was required to give an account to them. They saw that he was full of the Holy Spirit as he preached God’s Word! He declared what God has said, and what He did. Remember, he was preaching to the religious establishment: to professed believers in God- not professed atheists. These professed God, yet they were not born from above. They were not at all regenerate nor in the Kingdom; they were not circumcised in heart. He told them the truth regarding their unbelief, sin and disobedience! He accused them of resisting the Holy Spirit and persecuting and killing God’s people whom they had betrayed and murdered. The religious leaders were enraged! Stephen continued to honor and glorify Christ! The only way they could shut him up was to kill him, but Stephen was faithful to Jesus until the end.

“You men who are stiffnecked and uncircumcised in heart and ears are always resisting the Holy Spirit; you are doing just as your fathers did. Which one of the prophets did your fathers not persecute? And they killed those who had previously announced the Righteous One, whose betrayers and murderers you have now become…”Acts7:51-52
