SUPERNATURALLY MULTIPLIED BACK TO YOU
Hebrews 11:6 – But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.
It pleases God when we believe that He is the giver, the blesser and that “He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him”. Such was the faith of Ruth the Moabitess. When she decided to make the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob her God, she found Him to be her rewarder, who lovingly provided for her, divinely guided her, jealously protected her, gloriously redeemed her from her hopeless situation and richly restored her life.
Today, this same God says to you that He is your rewarder. And when He is involved in your life, you will be amply rewarded. Peter, the fisherman, would testify to that. His fishing boat, which represented his life, caught nothing the whole night. But in the morning, when the boat was returned to him after he had loaned it to Jesus, it was no longer the same boat. It was anointed, blessed and so magnetized that a great number of fish was attracted to it. In fact, he received a net-breaking, boat-sinking load of fish! (Luke 5:1–11)
Beloved, because God is your rewarder, if He borrows your “boat” even for a while, be assured that He will surely return it to you with a supernatural increase. Even if what you give Him is little, when placed in His hands, it will return to you blessed, anointed and multiplied.
This happened to the little boy who gave Jesus his lunch of five barley loaves and two fish. It must have thrilled the boy to see his small lunch supernaturally multiplied and satisfying not just him, but 5,000 men, not counting the women and children, and even leaving behind 12 baskets full of leftovers. (John 6:1–13)
Beloved, believe that God is a rewarder. When you give Him your finances, time, possessions and abilities, know for sure that He will return them to you blessed, anointed and multiplied!
SPEAK THE TRUTH IN LOVE
…Speak the truth in love…’ Ephesians 4:15 NLT
Even in a great relationship, you will have disagreements. That’s why you need to learn to fight fair. Paul addresses it this way: ‘…speak the truth in love, growing in every way more and more like Christ…’ If you grew up in a home filled with tension and angry words, you may find yourself trying to avoid arguments at any cost. But silence doesn’t solve problems; it just allows them to become unspoken wedges between you. What should you do? First, try to understand the difference between healthy and unhealthy conflict. In an unstable marriage, hostility is aimed at your spouse’s soft underbelly with comments like, ‘You never do anything right!’ and ‘Why did I marry you in the first place?’ and ‘You’re getting more like your mother every day!’ Such remarks strike at the very heart of your mate’s self–worth. Healthy conflict, by contrast, remains focused on the issues that cause disagreement. For example: ‘It upsets me when you don’t tell me you’re going to be late for dinner,’ or ‘I was embarrassed when you made me look foolish at the party last night.’ Can you hear the difference? Even though the two approaches may be equally contentious, the first assaults the dignity of your spouse while the second addresses the source of conflict. When you learn to make this important distinction, you can work through your disagreements without wounding and insulting each other. Plus, when gaining the upper hand leaves your spouse feeling wounded and upset, you both lose. Remember: when someone feels loved and valued, they’re generally more open and receptive to what you have to say.
THE LIKES OF US
Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field. —Matthew 9:38
In the late 19th century, William Carey felt a call to travel to India as a missionary to share the good news of Jesus. Pastors around him scoffed: “Young man, if God wants to save [anyone] in India, He will do it without your help or mine!” They missed the point of partnership. God does very little on earth without the likes of us.
As partners in God’s work on earth, we insist that God’s will be done while at the same time committing ourselves to whatever that may require of us. “Your kingdom come. Your will be done,” Jesus taught us to pray (Matt. 6:10). These words are not calm requests but holy demands. Give us justice! Set the world aright!
We have different roles to play, we and God. It is our role to follow in Jesus’ steps by doing the work of the kingdom both by our deeds and by our prayers.
We are Christ’s body on earth, to borrow Paul’s metaphor in Colossians 1:24. Those we serve, Christ serves. When we extend mercy to the broken, we reach out with the hands of Christ Himself.
Lord, You have called us Your friends. In some small way, help us to show Your love to this hurting world so they will know You.
Expect great things from God; attempt great things for God. – William Carey
JESUS, THE WISDOM OF GOD
Therefore also said the wisdom of God, I will send them prophets and apostles, and some of them they shall slay and persecute. – Luke 11:46-49
This phrase “Therefore also said the wisdom of God,” is a part of Luke’s narrative and not the words of Jesus. Luke is saying that Jesus is the wisdom of God, a truth well-established in scripture.
There is no way to access the wisdom of God except through Jesus. Until a person receives Christ, he is missing the only source of true wisdom. Men and women are incapable of receiving the wisdom of God, but those who submit themselves to God have access to the wisdom of God on their own, through the Holy Spirit. We must be dependent upon the Holy Spirit to receive the wisdom of God in our lives.
A Christian who has not received the Baptism of the Holy Spirit can have some revelation knowledge, but it will be limited. One of the greatest evidences that an individual has received the Baptism of the Holy Spirit is the tremendous amount of God’s wisdom that becomes available to him.
The truths of the Gospel, and the power of God that these truths release, can only be imparted through the anointing of the Holy Spirit. Human wisdom, regardless of how eloquent it is, cannot convey the life of God. Much of the preaching of the Gospel today is done in man’s wisdom. It’s impressive to the carnal mind, but it leaves the spirit starving for the touch of God. The greatest need among ministers today is not to have more of the world’s education, but to receive the revelation knowledge of the Holy Spirit. Only words spoken by the Spirit of God can reach the spirit of man. Spiritual thoughts have to be spoken with spiritual words (1 Cor. 2:13).
HOLINESS IS A FRUIT
But woe unto you, Pharisees! for ye tithe mint and rue and all manner of herbs, and pass over judgment and the love of God: these ought ye to have done and not to leave the other undone. – Luke 11:42-44
When Jesus said, “and not to leave the other undone,” it is clear that He is not arguing against doing what is right. God’s Word stresses holiness in our actions. The Pharisees’ error that caused Jesus’ rebuke was that they believed their actions could produce a right relationship with God. But a proper relationship with God can only come by humbling ourselves and putting faith in a Savior, who is Jesus. God cleanses our hearts by grace through faith (Eph. 2:8) and then we have our fruit unto holiness (Rom. 6:22). Holiness is a fruit, not a root, of salvation.
In a similar instance found in Matthew 23:26, Jesus told the Pharisees, “Thou blind Pharisee, cleanse first that which is within the cup and platter, that the outside of them may be clean also.” True Christianity comes from the inside out. A good heart will change a man’s actions, but a man’s actions cannot change his heart.
One of religion’s favorite doctrines is that if you will just act right, you will be right. Nothing could be further from the truth. You must be born again. And if you are born again, then holiness is a by-product and not the way to a relationship with God.
This is the heart of the Gospel. Every major religion of the world has a moral standard it enforces, but only Christianity offers salvation through a Savior. Presenting holiness in any way other than as a result of salvation is denying Jesus as our Savior and places the burden of salvation on us. Improper emphasis on achieving holiness or salvation through one’s own actions can damn that person. We must trust Jesus completely.
There are many people preaching the Word today without power. Personally, I believe the gospel and the power of God go hand in hand … SIGNS AND WONDERS SHALL FOLLOW THEM THAT BELIEVE. The sins of the Church today are denying the power of God … Wrong Belief, Neutrality, Indifference, Hard Loveless Orthodoxy. The Scriptures affirm, “… in the last days perilous times shall come, for men shall have a form of godliness but deny the power thereof: from such turn away” (II Timothy 3:1-5). God is simply not interested in religion but He is tremendously involved with the well being of people. We wish to open the doors of your life to the Deeper Spiritual Life. This can only occur through the power of God. Billy Sunday wrote, “Let’s quit fiddling with religion and do something to bring the world to Christ.” THE POWER OF GOD is the answer to the Church’s need in this day … signs and wonders should follow them that believe. The Lord gave us an example of these signs when He said in (Mk. 16:17), “THEY SHALL CAST OUT DEVILS.” How many places can you go today and see devils cast out? VERY FEW!
Why is your pastor not crying out to the nation to repent? Why is there no chorus of prayer asking for a fresh outpouring of the Holy Spirit? How can any voice enter a pulpit at this time without a sense of urgency? Is it because a spirit is on them that holds them in denial?
We have every reason to believe that prior generations of Christians would be staging mass rallies, crying out with fasting and prayer. If you announce such a thing today, believers will not show up.
American Christians binge on flattering sermons and exotic emotionalism. Some are even getting drunk and carousing while the nation burns. How can they do that without a strong delusion?
This is why I disagree with mega churches that are muting their beliefs in order to be accepted by the Gay community. That works on some, at least until they find out what it you actually believe. Thinking people will realize what you are doing, and will be insulted.
One of my heroes is David Wilkerson. He stood against sin in America. His church was not nestled securely in the Bible belt. His Times Square Church in New York City proclaimed holiness in the epicenter of immorality. Strippers, transvestites, and every so-called alternative lifestyle were right outside their door.
No one protested them as hateful and David never compromised. Untold numbers have walked in and found in Christ. Nothing works better than compassion with conviction
Part of the problem today is that the church of Jesus Christ doesn’t pray in tongues on a daily basis. Praying in tongues is Scriptural and helpful. The spiritual gift of tongues is the supernatural manifestation of the Spirit of God using one’s vocal organs. Giving utterance in one’s own language. “But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost, Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life,” (Jude 20-21). When one prays in tongues, it is the Holy Spirit praying through the person.
Power of Deliverance
The decline of America should be obvious to any thinking American. The explosion of crime, gang warfare and drive-by shootings in our cities, the disintegration of the American family, with proliferating divorce, infidelity, child abuse, single parent families and teenage rebellion, the explosion of drug usage (the highest in the world), forty million babies killed in their mother’s wombs more than 26 years, the rampant spread of promiscuity, pornography, homosexuality and sexually transmitted diseases, the dumbing down of American children in the public school system, high taxation, the ignoring of our Constitution, and exploding governmental controls over every aspect of the U.S. The government is the all irrefutable evidence of a country whose couture, morality, traditions, and spiritual life is in a free fall.
The names of activities that are listed above are motivated by devils. The Church has the answers through the deliverance ministry and the teaching of Christian character. However, the Church of Jesus Christ must have spiritual eyes to discern the spirits involved in a person’s life. Ministers must ask the Lord to let them see which spirit is operating. Is it a devil? Is the human spirit controlling the person’s flesh? Is it an emotional spirit controlling the nervous system? Is it a mental spirit in control? Is the Spirit of the Holy Spirit in control or is it a religious spirit of the Devil?
SPLITTING THE MIND
The Bible shows that the mind can be manipulated by supernatural forces. “But their minds were blinded: for until this day remaineth, the same veil taken away in the reading of the old testament; which veil is done away in Christ” (2 John 6:14).
These devils use deception to transfer spirits through the mind “Satan disguises himself as an angel of light (2 John 11:14), appearing to men as a messenger of that which is good and wholesome to indicate that, truly, he comes from God.
Mind Control is more than using psychological techniques. Deliverance is more than using hypnotherapy. The burgeoning field of holistic medicine shows a tremendous amount of experimentation involving the reinventing of many techniques long practiced in shamanism, such as visualization altered state of consciousness, aspects of psychoanalysis, hypnotherapy, mediation, positive attitude, stress-reduction and mental and emotional expression of personal will for health and healing. These reinvented techniques, are taught in many New Age seminars, personal transformation courses and in numerous New Age books (some of which are sold in Christian bookstores). This quackery is being used by teachers, college professors, nurses, doctors, businessmen and people from all walks of life. We know what force is working behind the scenes to make shamanic magicians more common than the “Old Age” church Gospel. Mind Control concerns evil men and women in the hand of Satan using demons and witchcraft to product spiritual slaves
Demonology and deliverance plays into mind control and mind Control is more than using psychological techniques.

A programmer or handler is a human being that is able to program and manipulate the mind of another human. The Handler works with demonic powers to gain command over another person’s mind. (2 Cor 4:4), “In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them,” Satan uses people as his Agents. Programmers and mind controllers will continue to be to gain access to the slave’s mind if the person tries to run and hide from them. There are no hiding places in the world because the agents work with supernatural powers.
Mind Control is simply someone else control or handling your mind and taking control of your will. This is called witchcraft. Your will was the part of you that makes choices of right or wrong. It is the part that God gave you that you would willingly decide to follow Jesus. Therefore, your will make your eternal choice of heaven or hell. You must guard your mind and will. Everyone seems to want to get control over your mind and will.
AWESOME SPIRITUAL POWER
“Say the word, and my servant will be healed. For I am a man placed under AUTHORITY” (Lk. 7:7-8). “Behold, I give you AUTHORITY … over all the power of the enemy, (Lk. 10:17-19).
If you want the benefits of being a Christian, you must be holy. The Apostle Peter admonished the Body of Christ in (1 Pet.1:14-16), in this manner – “As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance: But as He which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.” Is it possible nowadays for people, in the midst of this “adulterous and sinful generation,” to actually “be? Holy” in their behavior, ways or manner of life? Deliverance will help you to achieve your goal of holiness.
The Body of Christ is facing the most horrendous, Satanic and demonic greater confrontation than at any other time in history. It will be a time of intensified spiritual warfare where demons will manifest themselves and will fight in direct confrontation with God’s people. The Lord Jesus told us in Matthew 10:22, “And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.” And then in Matthew 6:33, He said, “But seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness . .”
The Spirit of God revealed to John in a vision that in the last days demon spirits would be released upon the earth which would go forth to deceive the world. Revelation 16:13-14: “And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.”
These three spirits that John saw represent lying, deceiving, seducing demon spirits that are going to be released by Satan. Revelation 16:14: “For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.”
It is true that Jesus Christ left awesome spiritual power to His church. “And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given to me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, an The Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: I lo am with you alway, even unto the end of the world, Amen,” (Matt. 28:18:20). This “Great Commission” is our marching order in evangelism. It is worldwide in its scope. Sin-deep in its reach. Heaven-high in his hope and eternity long in the duration of its results. Jesus said in (Matt. 12: 23-33) that Satan is not going to let anyone destroy his house without putting up a strong fight. He must be neutralized before a Christian can release his captives, Jesus asks this penetrating question “how can anyone enter a strongman’s house and carry off his possession unless he first tie up the strongman?” Then Jesus told us that we could enter his house in the Word. “Or else how can one enter into a strong man’s house, and spoil his goods, except he first bind the strong man? and then he will spoil his house,” (Matt. 12:29). Indeed binding the strongman is the first basic Principle of Spiritual warfare In fact, before any warfare opposing power and principalities and wicked rulers and evil spirits can be won to release the nation, cities, individual, family, the strongman must be bound to be defeated. The most powerful spiritual weapon is binding and loosing the strongman. Jesus said, (Matt 18:18- 20): 18 “Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. 19 “Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven. 20 For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.” Once Satan’s power is bound, Jesus enters freely into his house and carries off Satan’s possessions. It happens through you speaking to the demons, by the Word of God, in the name of Jesus. It is you acting in spiritual authority that Jesus delegated to His believers. He, sitting at the right hand of the Father, releases His power to you to defeat the Devil. The territory is delivered and Satan loses control. It works by a partnership between you and Jesus to defeat the Demons. Binding Satan’s powers then Jesus enters freely enters into his house and carries off Satan’s possessions.
The territory is delivered and Satan loses control.
The Greek word for spoil occurs in two forms, Diapazo and harapzo, which means “an intensive spoiling, plunder and snatching away.”
In (Lk. 11-22), the Greek word Skulon, conveys “arms stripped from a foe.” Putting it simply, Satan is stripped of his weapons, (Lk. 11:21,22).
The Greek word Deo means literally ties or fasten, to arrest or paralyze. The Christian reclaims everything that he has stolen.
In other words, Christians aggressively binding the power of demons and prohibits them from the carry forward their assignments.
From Curses to Blessings
Jesus Christ bore our curses on the tree. wE NEED TO LEARN how to walk out from underneath the curses that Satan tries to act physically, mentally, and spiritually on you. The famous evangelist, C.H. Spurgeon expressed by writing, “The first cause of the high priests’ benediction is substantially a promise from God says, “The Lord bless thee, and keep thee.” The blessing which our great High Priest, Jesus, pronounces upon us is sure to come, for He speaks the mind of God.” What a joy to abide under the divine blessing! This puts a gracious flavor into all things. If we are blessed, then all our possession and enjoyments are blessed, yea, our losses and crosses, and even our disappointments are blessed. God’s blessing is deep, emphatic, and effectual. A man’s blessing may begin and end in words, but the blessing of the Lord makes rich and sanctifies. The best wish we can have for our dearest friend is not “May prosperity attend thee, but The Lord bless thee.”
The New Testament makes it clear, that we are meant to lay claim on the achievements and provisions that come from the Cross and which are made real in us by the present work of the Holy Spirit. Faith is laying claim to what the Father offers us through the sacrifice of His Son. (Gal. 3:13). He hath bought us with a price. His blood or life. Being made a curse for us or made Atonement for our sins. He bore the curse in His body. “His body shall not remain all night upon the tree, but thou shalt in an wise bury him that day; (for he that is hanged is accursed of God that thy land be not defiled, which the LORD thy God giveth thee for a inheritance,” (Deut. 21:23).
There is a sin that most preachers are afraid to mention. It is the sin most church members do not want the pastor or preacher to preach about. Most ministers are afraid to even discuss it. People have always been the same way. They just ignore the power of sin over their flesh. They make wrong choices every day. They like to walk in the spirit of rebellion. In the days of Isaiah, the prophet, the people wanted smooth things rather than the truth. They shunned true prophecies. “That this is a rebellious people, lying children, children that will not hear the law of the Lord; which say to the seers, See not; and to the prophets, PROPHESY NOT unto us right things, speak unto us smooth things, prophesy deceits,” (Isa. 30:9,10). “… for the Lord has a CONTROVERSY with the inhabitants of the land, because there is no truth, nor mercy, nor KNOWLEDGE of God in the land. By swearing and lying, and killing and STEALING, and committing adultery, they break out, and blood toucheth blood!” (Hos. 4:1,2). People have not changed. Paul declared that in the last days some would depart and give way to seducing spirits and doctrines of devils. This that day! If ever you get in a place like that, be sure the devil will see to it that you hear such a lie. God said that He would send a strong delusion and let you believe a lie that all might be damned who did not want the truth. On one has to walk under curses … the choice is yours.
Spirit of Idolatry
Idolatry is Universal. Satan wants to be god of the world. He wants to assume the throne of God. He wants worship. He has many blinded followers called globalists. These globalists want to stamp out Christianity and cast Jesus Christ on the same level with every god, demon, and idol in the world. It’s okay to follow Jesus as long as you follow another gospel, another Jesus and another Spirit. The churches have become mind control centers being managed by bewitchments and the pleasures of the sex. Emotions are control by manipulation. The flesh is granted every sexual perversion and no longer challenged as sin. People follow those who are spiritually blinded. The pagan highway is being paved by the powers of darkness to prepare the way of the Prince of Darkness. Escaping the wrath that will be poured out on Babylon is not the only reason God’s people should flee from it. Another reason we must “come out of her” is because she is full of religious confusion, and that confusion will keep us from reaching the goal of redemption. Yet so many of God’s people refuse to come out. Maybe one reason they won’t flee is because they are not really sure what to flee from. Exactly what is Babylon anyway? Opinions vary. Some of the more common candidates are: (1) America — especially New York City, (2) the country of Iraq, (3) the Roman Catholic Church, (4) the Protestant Church, (5) all organized religion, (6) the United Nations, (7) the European Community (EU), (8) the One World government, (9) the One World religion and (10) the world system as a whole — the “cosmos” — which would include all of the above.
Women Messengers of Jesus Christ
Do you believe that Jesus Christ discriminated against women? Could Satan have twisted the roles of women? A good read! Did Jesus discriminate against women? Did the Apostle Paul discriminate against women? Women have been confined to an inferior, passive role in church leadership. Does the Bible have a plan for women? Women have been confined to an inferior, passive role in church leadership. This book is not written for advancing the so-called “Women’s Liberation.” We believe that women were truly liberated when Jesus died to release them from the bondage of both sin and the Law. We believe that in these last days, many women must claim their deliverance to fulfill their destiny to spread the good news of the Kingdom of the Lord Jesus Christ. Women figure prominently in the ministry of Jesus. He healed them. He spoke of them in his sermons and parables. From the New Testament writings, know they had a plan of considerable importance in the early churchwomen are among those who were cast into prison because of their faith, (Acts 8:3:9:2). Numerous women are named in the various epistles of Paul, indicating their rather extensive role in the work of the early church. They were treated with respect.
