PRIDE AND PRESUMPTION

AHThe LORD will destroy the house of the proud, But He will establish the boundary of the widow. Proverbs 15:25

Everyone proud in heart is an abomination to the LORD; Though they join forces, none will go unpunished. Proverbs 16:5

God doesn’t exist for the sake of His people or His house but they exist to serve, obey and worship Him. Those who love the truth will discern what is true and those who are pure in heart will discern that which is pure. Those who are proud and arrogant don’t want to hear or know that truth because their mind is made up and they have their own agenda. In Numbers 14 the bible tells us the disobedient Children of Israel presumed to go up to the mountaintop to fight their enemies; nevertheless, neither the ark of the covenant of the LORD nor Moses departed from the camp. As a result the Amalekites and the Canaanites who dwelt in that mountain came down and attacked them, and drove them back as far as Hormah. In other words they were soundly defeated as many of God’s people are when they presume things to be true but have not heard it from the voice of the Holy Spirit.

Jesus didn’t do anything unless His Father spoke to Him, told Him what to do and what words to say! Hence He had no problem to move on to another town and leave a great revival meeting. The bible records:

At evening, when the sun had set, they brought to Him all who were sick and those who were demon-possessed. And the whole city was gathered together at the door. Then He healed many who were sick with various diseases, and cast out many demons; and He did not allow the demons to speak, because they knew Him.

Now in the morning, having risen a long while before daylight, He went out and departed to a solitary place; and there He prayed. And Simon and those who were with Him searched for Him. When they found Him, they said to Him, “Everyone is looking for You.” But He said to them, “Let us go into the next towns, that I may preach there also, because for this purpose I have come forth.” Mark 1:32-38

“I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd gives His life for the sheep. “But a hireling, he who is not the shepherd, one who does not own the sheep, sees the wolf coming and leaves the sheep and flees; and the wolf catches the sheep and scatters them. “The hireling flees because he is a hireling and does not care about the sheep. John 10:11-13

Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus, who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God, but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men. And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross. Philippians 2:5-8

All true shepherds are like David and Jesus they are not hirelings who seek their own place or position but they lay down their lives for the sheep. And they are fearless against the enemy and pure in their worship before the Lord for they serve only the Lord !Jesus wasn’t concerned about making himself a reputation but took the form of a bondservant and coming in the likeness of men did the will of the Father, just like every true disciple of Jesus is supposed to do. Obedience to God is the hallmark of a Christian and not the size of his ministry or house or the abundance of the things he possesses. God’s word is unchanging:

And He said to them, “Take heed and beware of covetousness, for one’s life does not consist in the abundance of the things he possesses.” Then He spoke a parable to them, saying: “The ground of a certain rich man yielded plentifully. “And he thought within himself, saying, ‘What shall I do, since I have no room to store my crops?’ “So he said, ‘I will do this: I will pull down my barns and build greater, and there I will store all my crops and my goods. ‘And I will say to my soul, “Soul, you have many goods laid up for many years; take your ease; eat, drink, and be merry.” ‘ “But God said to him, ‘Fool! This night your soul will be required of you; then whose will those things be which you have provided?’ “So is he who lays up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.” Luke 12:15-21

“how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him. Acts 10:38

Yes, we are to lay up our treasures in heaven and seek the best good of others and not be concerned solely about me, myself and I! Yes, we are to seek the anointing and power that Jesus had so that we can go about doing good and healing all who are oppressed by the devil, for God is with us. We are to search the bible and check with the Holy Spirit to see that everything that was taught to us or have learned from others is truly from God! We are not to presume anything or it might be our downfall! We are not to be ignorant concerning spiritual gifts (1 Corinthians 12:1). We are to pursue love, and desire spiritual gifts, especially that we may prophesy (1 Corinthians 14:1) and we are not to let our pride stand in the way of receiving and doing all that God has for us!

We must not only believe in the Holy Spirit but make room for Him in our lives. He must the president of our lives and not just resident. We must know Him better than we know anyone else for He is our Helper, Counselor, Guide, Friend and Teacher! We must allow the presence and power of God overshadow us and be with us in everything that we do! As the angel said to Mary, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Highest will overshadow you.” God’s word is unchanging:

So Moses went out and told the people the words of the LORD, and he gathered the seventy men of the elders of the people and placed them around the tabernacle. Then the LORD came down in the cloud, and spoke to him, and took of the Spirit that was upon him, and placed the same upon the seventy elders; and it happened, when the Spirit rested upon them, that they prophesied, although they never did so again.

But two men had remained in the camp: the name of one was Eldad, and the name of the other Medad. And the Spirit rested upon them. Now they were among those listed, but who had not gone out to the tabernacle; yet they prophesied in the camp. And a young man ran and told Moses, and said, “Eldad and Medad are prophesying in the camp.” So Joshua the son of Nun, Moses’ assistant, one of his choice men, answered and said, “Moses my lord, forbid them!” Then Moses said to him, “Are you zealous for my sake? Oh, that all the LORD’S people were prophets and that the LORD would put His Spirit upon them!” Numbers 11:24-29

If anyone thinks himself to be a prophet or spiritual, let him acknowledge that the things which I write to you are the commandments of the Lord. But if anyone is ignorant, let him be ignorant. Therefore, brethren, desire earnestly to prophesy, and do not forbid to speak with tongues. Let all things be done decently and in order. 1 Corinthians 14:37-40

UNDERSTANDING AND LOVING

AGYes, the so called Church of Jesus Christ should be more understanding and loving of gays by offering them healing so they can become normal heterosexual people. However, that would require salvation and the Baptism of the Holy Spirit. But, that is not a popular ministry today because, like Jesus, many people would disagree and have hurt feelings.

MARK 16:14 Later He appeared to the eleven as they sat at the table; and He rebuked their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they did not believe those who had seen Him after He had risen.
15 And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.
16 He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned.
17 And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues;
18 they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”
19 So then, after the Lord had spoken to them, He was received up into heaven, and sat down at the right hand of God.
20 And they went out and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them and confirming the word through the accompanying signs. Amen.

ACTS 1:4 And being assembled together with them, He commanded them not to depart from Jerusalem, but to wait for the Promise of the Father, “which,” He said, “you have heard from Me;
5 for John truly baptized with water, but you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now.”
6 Therefore, when they had come together, they asked Him, saying, “Lord, will You at this time restore the kingdom to Israel?”
7 And He said to them, “It is not for you to know times or seasons which the Father has put in His own authority.
8 But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”

Acts 2: 1 When the Day of Pentecost had fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.
2 And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting.
3 Then there appeared to them divided tongues, as of fire, and one sat upon each of them.
4 And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.

1 Corinthians 12:28 And God has appointed these in the church: first apostles, second prophets, third teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, administrations, varieties of tongues.

SO MIRACLES SIGNS AND WONDERS ARE PART OF THE TRUE CHURCH OF JESUS CHRIST AND NOT PART OF THE COUNTERFEIT CHURCH AND CHRIST?

GOD DOESN’T HAVE PEOPLE PREACH TWO GOSPELS: ONE WITH MIRACLES SIGNS AND WONDERS AND THE OTHER WITHOUT!

Galatians 1:8 But even if we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel to you than what we have preached to you, let him be accursed.
9 As we have said before, so now I say again, if anyone preaches any other gospel to you than what you have received, let him be accursed.

1 Corinthians 12:28 And God has appointed these in the church: first apostles, second prophets, third teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, administrations, varieties of tongues.

TRUE CHRISTIANS DON’T JUST MOUTH SCRIPTURES THEY DEMONSTRATE POWER

ACTS 8:4 Therefore those who were scattered went everywhere preaching the word.
5 Then Philip went down to the city of Samaria and preached Christ to them.
6 And the multitudes with one accord heeded the things spoken by Philip, hearing and seeing the miracles which he did.
7 For unclean spirits, crying with a loud voice, came out of many who were possessed; and many who were paralyzed and lame were healed.
8 And there was great joy in that city.

FAITH WITHOUT WORKS IS DEAD. FAITH IS NOT COMPOSED OF ONLY QUOTING SCRIPTURES BUT OF DEMONSTRATING POWER
AND MORE PEOPLE WOULD BE CONVERTED TO JESUS BY DOING WHAT PETER DID RATHER THAN LISTENING TO EMPTY WORDS OF DECEIVED FOOLS AND HERETICS WHO DON’T OPERATE IN THE GIFTS OF THE SPIRIT?

Acts 3:1 Now Peter and John went up together to the temple at the hour of prayer, the ninth hour.
2 And a certain man lame from his mother’s womb was carried, whom they laid daily at the gate of the temple which is called Beautiful, to ask alms from those who entered the temple;
3 who, seeing Peter and John about to go into the temple, asked for alms.
4 And fixing his eyes on him, with John, Peter said, “Look at us.”
5 So he gave them his attention, expecting to receive something from them.
6 Then Peter said, “Silver and gold I do not have, but what I do have I give you: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk.”
7 And he took him by the right hand and lifted him up, and immediately his feet and ankle bones received strength.
8 So he, leaping up, stood and walked and entered the temple with them — walking, leaping, and praising God.
9 And all the people saw him walking and praising God.
10 Then they knew that it was he who sat begging alms at the Beautiful Gate of the temple; and they were filled with wonder and amazement at what had happened to him.

COMPASSION

ABCompassion in Action

But when he saw the multitudes, he was moved with compassion on them, because they fainted, and were scattered abroad, as sheep having no shepherd. – Matthew 9:36

TO BE COMPASSIONATE IS TO DO WHAT JESUS DID

Matthew 4:24 Then His fame went throughout all Syria; and they brought to Him all sick people who were afflicted with various diseases and torments, and those who were demon-possessed, epileptics, and paralytics; and He healed them.

Compassion. That’s the one thing people need more than anything else in this world. They need someone to reach out to them with the compassion of God.

Compassion is a deep yearning that responds to the needs of people. It’s much deeper than sympathy. Sympathy can just sit around feeling sorry for people. Compassion has to do something for them.

Compassion is what motivates God, and Jesus’ life on earth was a picture of that compassion in action. His whole ministry was driven by it. It was compassion that caused Him to multiply the loaves and fishes, heal the sick, cast out demons and raise the dead. It was compassion that compelled Him to go to the Cross. And it’s that same compassion that He now longs to pour out through you.

That’s a staggering thought, isn’t it?

It’s staggering to realize that we believers are the only body Jesus has on this earth now. His healing must flow through our hands and our faith. His compassion must move us to provide for the hungry. It must compel us to cast out demons and set the captives free.

“But, I don’t have that kind of compassion!”

Yes, you do. If you have the Spirit of God dwelling inside you, you do– because He is that kind of love! You simply need to activate it.

How? Just like Jesus did when He walked the earth. Through prayer and fellowship with the Father. Look through the Gospels and notice how much time Jesus spent alone with the Father. That time activated the compassion of God within Him. It caused Him to feel what God feels about the suffering of mankind. It stirred Him so much that whenever He encountered a need, He met it by the power of God.

Follow His example. Spend time in fellowship with your Father. Meditate on His compassion until it rises up strong on the inside of you. Stir it up until the desire to see others set free becomes paramount in your thinking.

Jesus has sent you to reach out and touch a love-starved world with His compassion.

The Greek Word for Compassion means “to be moved to pity in one’s inward parts” “specifically from the heart”. This means that it is caused or developed in us by the Holy Spirit when after we have received forgiveness for our sin and we have a new heart which, like a new wine skin, receives the Baptism of the Holy Spirit. This means that as the Holy Spirit removes the “works of the flesh” (Gal. 5: 19 – 21) and replaces them with the “fruit of the Spirit” (Gal. 5: 22 – 23).

Compassion is then developed as we cooperate with the Holy Spirit and seek His guidance which is motivated be the “fruit” (singular) like an orange has sections, all of which working together develops compassion for the needs of other people. However, even Spirit-filled people can resist the feeling of compassion when they decide that others do not deserve or earned compassion. The result, of course, is that they place themselves under condemnation.

For instance, in Matthew 18: 27, the king has pity (same Greek word for compassion) upon the servant who could not pay back his debt. When that now forgiven servant confronts a fellow servant who owed him a very small debt compared to the $Billions that he had just been forgiven, he would not have patience with him and had him arrested and thrown into jail. When the king hears this, he calls back the servant that he had forgiven his debt. He said to him, “You wicked servant! I forgave you all that debt because you besought me; and should not you have had mercy (pity, compassion) on your fellow servant as I had mercy (pity, compassion) on you?”

So, here was a man who had spent time with his king (Heavenly Father; Jesus) and he had no compassion because he did not have a “new heart and a new Spirit”. To have compassion: pity , we need the Holy Spirit to develop it in us. And, like Paul said to Timothy because he had fear when he did not cooperate with the Holy Spirit, he told Timothy, “Hence I remind you, to stir up the Gift (charisma) of God which you received with the laying on of my hands” (2 Tim. 1: 6 – 7). It is as we follow the direction of our Counsellor everyday, praying in tongues, about everything (Eph. 6; 18), the Holy Spirit develops the fruit of the Spirit which develops the character of Jesus in us so that we can show compassion as Jesus did to the man and to us. Jesus had compassion because He was led by the Holy Spirit to do the ministry for which He had been born. “Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil” (Matt. 4: 1; Mk. 1: 12 – 13; Lk. 4: 1). Every time we are led by the Holy Spirit and do the works of Jesus (Jn. 14: 12) and His Father (Matt. 12: 50). So, it is our cooperation with the Holy Spirit that He develops “compassion” for the lost sheep.

Through Our Weaknesses

One of the greatest examples in the Bible of God’s grace in action is in Paul’s life and the thorn in his flesh

To keep me from being puffed up and too much elated by the exceeding greatness (preeminence) of these revelations, there was given me a thorn (a splinter) in the flesh, a messenger of Satan, to rack and buffet and harass me, to keep me from being excessively exalted (2 Cor. 12:7 AMP).

The Word is very clear that Paul’s thorn was from Satan. It says “…there was given me a thorn (a splinter) in the flesh, a messenger of Satan…” (vs. 7). It was Satan who was trying to keep Paul from being too highly exalted by the awesomeness of what had been revealed to him – not God!

At this point, I think we need to clarify a misconception that has been taught in the church for centuries. Satan knew because of Paul’s dramatic conversion, healing, revelation knowledge, and the anointing that was so powerful on his life, that Paul was a major threat to the kingdom of darkness. Satan knew that he must use all of his resources to destroy this man and his ministry. According to 2 Corinthians 12:7, Satan sent and assigned a messenger (fallen angel, demonic spirit) to torment Paul continually. Satan did not want Paul to be exalted in the ministry that laid the foundation for the Church.

“Concerning this thing I pleaded with the Lord three times that it might depart from me” (2 Corinthians 2:8). Three different times Paul pleaded and begged God to make the thorn go away. God didn’t ignore Paul. He just answered him and said: “My grace is enough for you; for My strength and power are made perfect (fulfilled and completed) and show themselves most effective in your weakness”(2 Corinthians 12:9 AMP).

God knew that if He just took away the thorn (the messenger from Satan), then Paul would not understand and experience the concept of the power of grace working through him to strengthen him to do the supernatural. God also knew that when Paul overcame the thorn through God’s grace and by God’s strength, that the thorn would no longer have any effect on Paul.

If God took the messenger from Satan away, then Paul would have had to petition God every time he was attacked. If God empowered Paul to resist the devil by grace, then Paul would be continuously empowered and protected. Through this, Paul was strengthened in grace and authority.

When you are facing a situation you don’t want to face and the only solution you can see is for God to just take it away, then realize that God’s grace is there to enable you to overcome the situation, so that it no longer can affect you negatively. It will have no power over you.

God’s grace and strength empowers you to overcome the evil one and his attacks: “So you, my son, be strong (strengthened inwardly) in the grace (spiritual blessing) that is [to be found only] in Christ Jesus” (2 Timothy 2:1 AMP).

Time To Use Your Authority

15 And the Lord said to Moses, “Why do you cry to Me? Tell the children of Israel to go forward.
16 But lift up your rod, and stretch out your hand over the sea and divide it…
Exodus 14:15-16

The problem with the body of Christ today is not that we are not praying. We are praying. But many of us are praying desperate prayers. We are praying, “God, help… God, please… God, do something about my problem!”

If you are smiling a little by now, most likely, you know about such prayers and might have prayed a couple yourself. My friend, God does not want you to pray pleading prayers all the time. He wants you to use the authority He has given you to pray powerful prayers, to boldly command and to “stretch out your hand” and see miracles happen.

When Moses stood before the Red Sea with Pharaoh’s army in hot pursuit, the Bible tells us that he cried out to God. But God told him, “Why do you cry to Me?”

There is a time for you to cry out to God and there is a time for you to use your authority. God told Moses, “Tell the children of Israel to go forward. But lift up your rod, and stretch out your hand over the sea and divide it.”

The “rod” you have today is the name of Jesus. As you command in Jesus’ name, your “sea” will open and you will go on dry ground through the midst of your problem.

Do you realize that Jesus did not say, “Go and pray for the sick”? He said, “Go and heal the sick.” (Matthew 10:8) So stop pleading and asking all the time, and start using the authority you have in Christ.

Jesus told the church, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore…” (Matthew 28:18–19) My friend, God wants you to go and use the authority that He has given you. And as you go, miracles will flow!

Thought For The Day
When you start using the authority you have in Christ, miracles will flow.

BENEFITS

20100821
Forget Not All His Benefits

Bless the LORD, O my soul; And all that is within me, bless His holy name! Bless the LORD, O my soul, And forget not all His benefits: Who forgives all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases, Who redeems your life from destruction, Who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies, Who satisfies your mouth with good things, So that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s. The LORD executes righteousness And justice for all who are oppressed. Psalm 103:1-6

Since God has created us then He makes sense that He can solve all our problems, forgive all our iniquities, heal all our diseases, redeem our life from destruction, crown us with lovingkindness and tender mercies, satisfy our mouth with good things, so that our youth is renewed like the eagle’s and execute righteousness and justice for all who are oppressed. God’s word is unchanging:

“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. “For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. “Or what man is there among you who, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone? “Or if he asks for a fish, will he give him a serpent? “If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him! Matthew 7:7-11

Then He spoke a parable to them, that men always ought to pray and not lose heart, saying: “There was in a certain city a judge who did not fear God nor regard man. “Now there was a widow in that city; and she came to him, saying, ‘Get justice for me from my adversary.’ “And he would not for a while; but afterward he said within himself, ‘Though I do not fear God nor regard man, ‘yet because this widow troubles me I will avenge her, lest by her continual coming she weary me.’ ” Then the Lord said, “Hear what the unjust judge said. “And shall God not avenge His own elect who cry out day and night to Him, though He bears long with them? “I tell you that He will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will He really find faith on the earth?” Luke 18:1-8

Because God is our Father and because we have been born again and are His children through the blood of Jesus we have inherited all things (Acts 20:32, Ephesians 1:11, 1 Peter 3:9). Hence the Lord has told us to pray and not lose heart for God shall avenge speedily is own elect who cry out day and night to Him, though He bears long with them. He has stated “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. “For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.” He has told us “how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him!” For the LORD God is a sun and shield; The LORD will give grace and glory; No good thing will He withhold From those who walk uprightly (Psalm 84:11)!

It doesn’t matter what the need is God is able to meet the need. No problem or sickness is too big or too small that He cannot handle or sickness that He cannot heal! And there is no enemy of His people that He cannot destroy for Jesus was manifested to destroy the works of the devil. God’s word is unchanging:

For we do not want you to be ignorant, brethren, of our trouble which came to us in Asia: that we were burdened beyond measure, above strength, so that we despaired even of life. Yes, we had the sentence of death in ourselves, that we should not trust in ourselves but in God who raises the dead, who delivered us from so great a death, and does deliver us; in whom we trust that He will still deliver us, you also helping together in prayer for us, that thanks may be given by many persons on our behalf for the gift granted to us through many. 2 Corinthians 1:8-11

Yes, we praise God not because of the trouble that comes to us thereby making us burdened beyond measure, above strength, so that we despair even of life, but because we have the sentence of death in ourselves, that we should not trust in ourselves but in God who raises the dead, who delivered us and does deliver us and will continue to do so.

It was naturally that when the disciples saw that their boat was filling with water their minds perceived danger and they were fearful and ran to Jesus. But what did Jesus say when He woke up? And he said unto them, Why are ye fearful? Have ye not yet faith? (Mark.4:40)

If Jesus was in the boat, what were they worried about? Jesus is always in the boat with us. What are we worried about? We are just to have faith and give thanks always for all things in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ for He will perfect all that concerns us as in Christ we have obtained an inheritance, being predestined according to the purpose of Him who works all things according to the counsel of His will, (Ephesians1:11). Everything that God is doing, He is doing according to the counsel of His own will. Yes, God rules over all and we can trust His way and His word. His word is unchanging:

As for God, His way is perfect; The word of the LORD is proven; He is a shield to all who trust in Him. “For who is God, except the LORD? And who is a rock, except our God? God is my strength and power, And He makes my way perfect. 2 Samuel 22:31-33

Call upon Me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you shall glorify Me.” Psalm 50:15

“Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him; I will set him on high, because he has known My name. He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him and honor him. With long life I will satisfy him, And show him My salvation.” Psalm 91:14-16

DEMONIC OBAMA

BG

Even though he claims to be a Christian, throughout his political career Obama has repeatedly attacked traditional Biblical Christianity and he has a very long history of anti-Christian actions.  In public speeches he has repeatedly cast doubt on the Bible, he has repeatedly stated that he does not believe that Jesus is necessary for salvation, and he has consistently said that he believes that all “people of faith” believe in the same God.  At the same time, Obama has always referred to Muhammed as “the Prophet”, he has always expressed great love and respect for Islam, and he has even removed all references to Islam from terror training materials used by federal government agencies.  So what in the world does “the leader of the free world” actually believe?  Read the quotes below and decide for yourself…

20 Quotes By Barack Obama About Islam

#1 “The future must not belong to those who slander the Prophet of Islam”

#2 “The sweetest sound I know is the Muslim call to prayer”

#3 “We will convey our deep appreciation for the Islamic faith, which has done so much over the centuries to shape the world — including in my own country.”

#4 “As a student of history, I also know civilization’s debt to Islam.”

#5 “Islam has a proud tradition of tolerance.”

#6 “Islam has always been part of America”

#7 “we will encourage more Americans to study in Muslim communities”

#8 “These rituals remind us of the principles that we hold in common, and Islam’s role in advancing justice, progress, tolerance, and the dignity of all human beings.”

#9 “America and Islam are not exclusive and need not be in competition. Instead, they overlap, and share common principles of justice and progress, tolerance and the dignity of all human beings.”

#10 “I made clear that America is not – and never will be – at war with Islam.”

#11 “Islam is not part of the problem in combating violent extremism – it is an important part of promoting peace.”

#12 “So I have known Islam on three continents before coming to the region where it was first revealed”

#13 “In ancient times and in our times, Muslim communities have been at the forefront of innovation and education.”

#14 “throughout history, Islam has demonstrated through words and deeds the possibilities of religious tolerance and racial equality.”

#15 “Ramadan is a celebration of a faith known for great diversity and racial equality”

#16 “The Holy Koran tells us, ‘O mankind! We have created you male and a female; and we have made you into nations and tribes so that you may know one another.’”

#17 “I look forward to hosting an Iftar dinner celebrating Ramadan here at the White House later this week, and wish you a blessed month.”

#18 “We’ve seen those results in generations of Muslim immigrants – farmers and factory workers, helping to lay the railroads and build our cities, the Muslim innovators who helped build some of our highest skyscrapers and who helped unlock the secrets of our universe.”

#19 “That experience guides my conviction that partnership between America and Islam must be based on what Islam is, not what it isn’t. And I consider it part of my responsibility as president of the United States to fight against negative stereotypes of Islam wherever they appear.”

#20 “I also know that Islam has always been a part of America’s story.”

20 Quotes By Barack Obama About Christianity

#1 “Whatever we once were, we are no longer a Christian nation”

#2 “We do not consider ourselves a Christian nation.”

#3 “Which passages of scripture should guide our public policy?  Should we go with Leviticus, which suggests slavery is OK and that eating shellfish is an abomination?  Or we could go with Deuteronomy, which suggests stoning your child if he strays from the faith?”

#4 “Even those who claim the Bible’s inerrancy make distinctions between Scriptural edicts, sensing that some passages – the Ten Commandments, say, or a belief in Christ’s divinity – are central to Christian faith, while others are more culturally specific and may be modified to accommodate modern life.”

#5 “The American people intuitively understand this, which is why the majority of Catholics practice birth control and some of those opposed to gay marriage nevertheless are opposed to a Constitutional amendment to ban it. Religious leadership need not accept such wisdom in counseling their flocks, but they should recognize this wisdom in their politics.”

#6 From Obama’s book, The Audacity of Hope: “I am not willing to have the state deny American citizens a civil union that confers equivalent rights on such basic matters as hospital visitation or health insurance coverage simply because the people they love are of the same sex—nor am I willing to accept a reading of the Bible that considers an obscure line in Romans to be more defining of Christianity than the Sermon on the Mount.”

#7 Obama’s response when asked what his definition of sin is: “Being out of alignment with my values.”

#8 “If all it took was someone proclaiming I believe Jesus Christ and that he died for my sins, and that was all there was to it, people wouldn’t have to keep coming to church, would they.”

#9 “This is something that I’m sure I’d have serious debates with my fellow Christians about. I think that the difficult thing about any religion, including Christianity, is that at some level there is a call to evangelize and prostelytize. There’s the belief, certainly in some quarters, that people haven’t embraced Jesus Christ as their personal savior that they’re going to hell.”

#10 “I find it hard to believe that my God would consign four-fifths of the world to hell.  I can’t imagine that my God would allow some little Hindu kid in India who never interacts with the Christian faith to somehow burn for all eternity.  That’s just not part of my religious makeup.”

#11 “I don’t presume to have knowledge of what happens after I die. But I feel very strongly that whether the reward is in the here and now or in the hereafter, the aligning myself to my faith and my values is a good thing.”

#12 “I’ve said this before, and I know this raises questions in the minds of some evangelicals. I do not believe that my mother, who never formally embraced Christianity as far as I know … I do not believe she went to hell.”

#13 “Those opposed to abortion cannot simply invoke God’s will–they have to explain why abortion violates some principle that is accessible to people of all faiths.”

#14 On his support for civil unions for gay couples: “If people find that controversial then I would just refer them to the Sermon on the Mount.”

#15 “You got into these small towns in Pennsylvania and, like a lot of small towns in the Midwest, the jobs have been gone now for 25 years and nothing’s replaced them. And they fell through the Clinton Administration, and the Bush Administration, and each successive administration has said that somehow these communities are gonna regenerate and they have not. And it’s not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.”

#16 “In our household, the Bible, the Koran and the Bhagavad Gita sat on the shelf alongside books of Greek and Norse and African mythology”

#17 “On Easter or Christmas Day, my mother might drag me to church, just as she dragged me to the Buddhist temple, the Chinese New Year celebration, the Shinto shrine, and ancient Hawaiian burial sites.”

#18 “we have Jews, Muslims, Hindus, atheists, agnostics, Buddhists, and their own path to grace is one that we have to revere and respect as much as our own”

#19 “All of us have a responsibility to work for the day when the mothers of Israelis and Palestinians can see their children grow up without fear; when the Holy Land of the three great faiths is the place of peace that God intended it to be; when Jerusalem is a secure and lasting home for Jews and Christians and Muslims, and a place for all of the children of Abraham to mingle peacefully together as in the story of Isra — (applause) — as in the story of Isra, when Moses, Jesus, and Mohammed, peace be upon them, joined in prayer.  (Applause.)”

#20 “I believe that there are many paths to the same place, and that is a belief that there is a higher power, a belief that we are connected as a people.”

GOOD NEWS

20100819GOD IS MORE THAN ENOUGH TO HANDLE ALL OUR BURDENS AND CARES THAT WE CAST UPON HIM?

Psalms 55:22 Cast your burden on the LORD, And He shall sustain you; He shall never permit the righteous to be moved.

1 Peter 57 casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.

Psalms 27:1 The LORD is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear? The LORD is the strength of my life; Of whom shall I be afraid?
2 When the wicked came against me To eat up my flesh, My enemies and foes, They stumbled and fell.
3 Though an army may encamp against me, My heart shall not fear; Though war may rise against me, In this I will be confident.
4 One thing I have desired of the LORD, That will I seek: That I may dwell in the house of the LORD All the days of my life, To behold the beauty of the LORD, And to inquire in His temple.
5 For in the time of trouble He shall hide me in His pavilion; In the secret place of His tabernacle He shall hide me; He shall set me high upon a rock.
6 And now my head shall be lifted up above my enemies all around me; Therefore I will offer sacrifices of joy in His tabernacle; I will sing, yes, I will sing praises to the LORD.

Eternal Life, Health, and Prosperity

Jesus became our substitute and redeemed us from the whole curse of the law. The curse, and how Jesus redeemed us, basically consisted of three parts.

The curse:
1) Spiritual death
2) Sickness and disease
3) Poverty

The redemption:
1) Eternal life (Hebrews 9:12)
2) Health and healing (1 Peter 2:24)
3) Prosperity (2 Corinthians 8:9)

Unfortunately for them, many people stop after one third of the curse has been broken in their life. Jesus paid the price to break the entire curse of the law, which included poverty, sickness, and spiritual death. We are good at telling people they need to become spiritually alive. We even tell them that when Jesus died on the cross, He became a curse (Gal. 3:13) and because He was cursed, we’re not cursed anymore.

Why stop there? What about the curse of sickness and disease? What about the curse of poverty? He became our substitute in those things, too. The Scripture clearly tells us so. He paid the price you couldn’t pay so that you can be rich.

He took the curse of poverty for you and He paid the price. Second Corinthians 8:9 says, “For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich, yet for your sakes He became poor, that you through His poverty might become rich.”

This scripture can only mean that Jesus was the substitute for your poverty. He was the propitiation for that part of the curse of the law for you. It means that though He was so very rich (in heaven), yet for our sakes Jesus became like us (poor), so that we could become like Him (rich, enriched, and abundantly supplied)!

One time I heard a preacher say, “I don’t want to use the word ‘rich.’ I’m just going to say ‘doing well.'” Is it wrong to quote the Bible? Some denominations don’t want to use the word “blood” because they’re afraid it’s offensive. Other denominations don’t want to use the word “rich” because it’s offensive. Who decides which words we take out of the Bible and which ones we don’t?

I believe if you are healthy, spiritually alive and you’ve got some money in the bank, you can do more for the Gospel than if you’re lying on your back in a hospital with a dead spirit and you’re dead broke.

The devil does not want you living the Gospel. The Scripture says, “For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil” (1 John 3:8). What are the works of the devil? In John 10:10, Jesus tells us, “The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy…” Sounds like the curse of the law to me. The devil wants to kill you. He wants you spiritually dead. He wants to steal from you. He wants to destroy your body. The devil wants you to live under the curse. Jesus shed His blood so you wouldn’t have to live under the curse.

UN-NAMED SCOUNDRELS

Four Fatal Flaws That Ruin Ministries

6:00AM EDT 9/26/2013    J. LEE GRADY

I spend a lot of time investing in young leaders—and I constantly urge them to learn from the mistakes we made in the previous move of God. I appreciate the positive things the Holy Spirit did during the charismatic movement, but we made a mess because we didn’t lead with integrity.

The apostle Paul gave us a crash course in leadership in his second letter to the Corinthians. While studying that epistle recently, I identified four of the biggest mistakes we made during the charismatic revival. I pray we’ve learned our lesson so we can avoid these flaws in the next season.

1. Charlatanism. We charismatics lost our credibility during the past 30 years because certain greedy preachers manipulated their audiences to pad their own pockets. Just as a little leaven spreads to the whole lump of dough, the charlatans ruined it for all of us.

The apostle Paul told the Corinthians, “For we are not like many, peddling the Word of God” (2 Cor. 2:17, NASB). The Greek word for peddling, kapeleuo, means “to make money by selling; to corrupt; to get gain by teaching divine truth.” How many well-known charismatic preachers started out well but ended up as pitiful peddlers, begging for dollars to pay for luxury cars and mansions they felt they needed to prove their importance? (And now some of these guys have their own reality show, The Preachers of L.A., which airs in October and features Noel Jones and Clarence McClendon.)

 2. Entitlement. Paul continually reminded the Corinthians that he was a servant: “For we do not preach ourselves but Christ Jesus as Lord, and ourselves as your bond-servants for Jesus’ sake” (2 Cor. 4:5). Servanthood is the most fundamental requirement for any leader. Yet in our movement, we celebrated the opposite attitude by allowing leaders with out-of-control egos to demand special treatment.

I know of one conference speaker who routinely sends a 23-page list of requirements to churches that want her to speak! In the past, some charismatic preachers have demanded shopping money (in addition to their honorariums) and luxury accommodations; others insist they can’t travel without their “armor bearer”—basically a minion who carries a preacher’s briefcase, handkerchief and water bottle to make him look important.

News flash! Paul did not have an armor bearer, and he would have rebuked any minister who insists on acting like a fat cat.

3. Arrogance. The apostle Paul modeled teamwork. When he went to Corinth, Thessalonica or Crete, it was not The Paul Show. He traveled with Luke, Silas, Timothy and many others. He told the Corinthians, “As for Titus, he is my partner and fellow worker among you” (2 Cor. 8:23)—and Paul exhorted the church to view Titus with the same respect they showed him.

Yet in our movement, we put men on pedestals and under spotlights. We created a culture of preacher worship. Leaders began using titles. Then came the limousines and private jets. Some high-profile speakers went so far as to promote the use of bodyguards. And I know of at least one preacher who demanded that a church fly special beef to his hotel so he could have the steak he required. Pride turns men of God into monsters.

 4. Professionalism. Somebody got the bright idea a few years ago that churches should be managed like businesses. So pastors became CEOs, and ministry was put on an assembly line. Congregations became franchises competing with each other to see who could offer the coolest music, the hippest sermons and the best lobby coffee bar. But a funny thing happened on the way to the megachurch: We lost the relational touch.

I’m not against big churches, cool music or coffee bars. But my fear is that leaders today might assume they can buy success by copying the style of this month’s most popular rock-star preacher. I don’t care if you have strobe lights, fog machines, killer musicians and a home-run sermon every week. If people don’t see true brokenness in the pulpit and experience real pastoral care, they will never grow into disciples. Shallow, professional leaders produce shallow Christianity.

 Leaders must be real. Our ministry must flow out of passionate love for God and genuine love for people. The apostle Paul never wore a mask. He was touchable and affectionate. He never went through the motions. He was broken. He knew he was nothing apart from Jesus. He told the Corinthians, “Most gladly, therefore, I will rather boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me” (2 Cor. 12:9).

Paul told the Corinthians he was careful not to offend in any area “so that the ministry will not be discredited” (2 Cor. 6:3). I wish we had been that careful to guard what God gave us in the charismatic revival. Our flaws have grieved the Holy Spirit. Let’s trade in charlatanism for financial integrity; entitlement for servanthood; the celebrity syndrome for teamwork; and professionalism for touchable authenticity. Let’s become leaders who act like Jesus.

WHY IS IT THE WOF OR PROSPERITY PREACHERS DON’T TALK ABOUT THE JUDGMENT OF GOD IN THE CURRENT TIME OF LIFE?

For we know Him Who said, Vengeance is Mine [retribution and the meting out of full justice rest with Me]; I will repay [I will exact the compensation], says the Lord. And again, The Lord will judge and determine and solve and settle the cause and the cases of His people. It is a fearful (formidable and terrible) thing to incur the divine penalties and be cast into the hands of the living God! – Hebrews 10:30-31 AMP

1 CORINTHIANS 5:9 I wrote to you in my epistle not to keep company with sexually immoral people.
10 Yet I certainly did not mean with the sexually immoral people of this world, or with the covetous, or extortioners, or idolaters, since then you would need to go out of the world.
11 But now I have written to you not to keep company with anyone named a brother, who is sexually immoral, or covetous, or an idolater, or a reviler, or a drunkard, or an extortioner — not even to eat with such a person.
12 For what have I to do with judging those also who are outside? Do you not judge those who are inside?
13 But those who are outside God judges. Therefore “put away from yourselves the evil person.”

Luke 18: 1 Then He spoke a parable to them, that men always ought to pray and not lose heart,
2 saying: “There was in a certain city a judge who did not fear God nor regard man.
3 Now there was a widow in that city; and she came to him, saying, ‘Get justice for me from my adversary.’
4 And he would not for a while; but afterward he said within himself, ‘Though I do not fear God nor regard man,
5 yet because this widow troubles me I will avenge her, lest by her continual coming she weary me.’ ”
6 Then the Lord said, “Hear what the unjust judge said.
7 And shall God not avenge His own elect who cry out day and night to Him, though He bears long with them?
8 I tell you that He will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will He really find faith on the earth?”
