Conspiracy Theories and the Christian as Warrior

Take up your weapons of war

The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

John 10:10

We do have an enemy

Yes, we are the victims if a worldwide conspiracy. No, it has nothing to do with the works of Man nor is the enemy the government or governments. They are simply the agents.

The Covid-19 virus is in the natural an enemy but if we allow it to destroy our nation then it becomes a spiritual enemy sent the steal, kill and destroy. Our warfare is not on earth. That is called fighting in the flesh. And it gets nothing done. Accusing leadership forces our warfare into the natural realm.

2 Corinthians 2:14 PHILLIPS But the unspiritual man simply cannot accept the matters which the Spirit deals with—they just don’t make sense to him, for, after all, you must be spiritual to see spiritual things. The spiritual man, on the other hand, has an insight into the meaning of everything, though his insight may baffle the man of the world. 

But our fight is not in the natural or the flesh. Our war is in the heavenly places.

Spiritual warfare

Ephesians 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

And we fight with prayer, fasting and worship, ie. praise and worship. We also war with communion.

2 Corinthians 10:4 For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;

SUIT UP:

14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;

15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;

16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.

Ephesians 6:14-16 King James Version (KJV)

Americans Must Choose

Matthew 10:26 “Therefore do not fear them, for there is nothing concealed that will not be revealed, or hidden that will not be known.

Let us thank God that He is exposing evil at every turn.  Today Americans as well as Germans, Brits and all of Europe are having their eyes open to the aggressive presence of evil in their societies. It is our prayer, our continuing prayer that as we approach this election everything will come out.

Anti-Islam Terrorism in France
Anti-Islam Terrorism in France

Major revelations appear out of the blue of the hearts of people we once thought well of. Individuals are taking sides everywhere.  Multiple movie notables and celebrities solemnly swear to leave the USA if so and so wins. So they are summer soldiers; they take their huge incomes and flee at the first sign of trouble?  We’ve been in trouble a long time now.

It’s like junior high school where the team captains select their players from the sidelines and we see who is on the side of evil, who is picking themselves for good. Media giants are exposed and lawsuits follow, meaning lots of media fun for next year. Silent voters refuse to put up a yard sign or bumper strip for fear of having their car or their lawn trashed. But fear does make some stronger and more determined to fight.

Actors whose movies you waited eagerly to see now don’t seem so nice as they use four letter words to describe the voter, the President, a Senator even God. Well – goodbye to them.

Nations in Europe we thought had so much sense have let in the devil and his hordes.  Laws that were passed and we assumed being honored are ignored; hospitals required to accept some patients are turning them away in violation of the law. Businesses that agreed to support a certain party are NOT paying taxes – lucky them. All now exposed. Thank you Wikileaks.

This interesting phenomenon is described in Romans 1:18,  God Himself is doing this.  The scripture is here:

Romans 1:18 (KJV)  For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; 

The special Greek middle voice

This sentence has special meaning since the continuing present tense middle voice is used.  This tense means that God is continually revealing or uncovering the truth about evil in mean’s hearts, evil that they deliberately embrace in opposition to the truth. That certainly describes what is going on. They are without excuse. Furthermore the “middle” voice in Greek means that God is doing this for His own reasons and purposes.  This is not coming about because men are prompting it.

If He is doing this all the time, why have we not noticed until now?  Maybe we have and just didn’t think it was so urgent, but now the evil around us and in political systems has come to critical mass.  We cannot avoid anymore what we are seeing both in our nation and in others.

This is God’s doing and it is marvelous in our sight.

Habakkuk 1:5-11 MSG “Look around at the godless nations. Look long and hard. Brace yourself for a shock. Something’s about to take place and you’re going to find it hard to believe. I’m about to raise up Babylonians to punish you, Babylonians, fierce and ferocious— World-conquering Babylon, grabbing up nations right and left, A dreadful and terrible people, making up its own rules as it goes. Their horses run like the wind, attack like bloodthirsty wolves. A stampede of galloping horses thunders out of nowhere. They descend like vultures circling in on carrion. They’re out to kill. Death is on their minds. They collect victims like squirrels gathering nuts. They mock kings, poke fun at generals, Spit on forts, and leave them in the dust. They’ll all be blown away by the wind. Brazen in sin, they call strength their god.”

OK God. Please consider we Americans as punished!

Lest we forget.  Islam is Babylon.
Continue to ask God to pull back the curtain covering evil.

The Coronavirus Prayer

Say out loud with conviction.

The Lord God has provided for me and my house with his Promise:

He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High
Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress;
My God, in Him I will trust.”

Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the [a]fowler
And from the perilous pestilence.
He shall cover you with His feathers,
And under His wings you shall take refuge;
His truth shall be your shield and [b]buckler.
You shall not be afraid of the terror by night,
Nor of the arrow that flies by day,
Nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness,
Nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday.

A thousand may fall at your side,
And ten thousand at your right hand;
But it shall not come near you.
Only with your eyes shall you look,
And see the reward of the wicked.

Because you have made the Lord, who is my refuge,
Even the Most High, your dwelling place,
10 No evil shall befall you,
Nor shall any plague come near your dwelling;
11 For He shall give His angels charge over you,
To keep you in all your ways.

Surefire Prayers for Politics

Several years ago a group of Christians decided on this prayer and have persisted in this prayer for a long time.  And it worked.  You will notice this as it reflects the news media.

Luke 12:3 Therefore whatsoever ye have spoken in darkness shall be heard in the light; and that which ye have spoken in the ear in closets shall be proclaimed upon the housetops.

As the words and actions of criminal enterprises by politicians and their aides continue to be exposed in the government, both here and abroad, you can verify that this prayer works. Ask God to expose the plans for evil men to do harm. In most cases this will involve money transfers that are against the law. But, as in the case of the Steele Dossier, deliberate complex lies about someone in office or running for office came to light.

Lies supported by PAC money

The same type of programs are cooked up in small elections which is harder to trace, but if it is done on a large scale is can change the face if the Congress very quickly because no one realizes it. In one case a group of people who oppose everything (no joke) took an audio tape and doctored it so the candidate was saying something she absolutely did not say. Voters have rushed to take sides with threats and vitriol which says more about them than it does about the poor candidate.

Christians have access to the mind of the Holy Spirit

Wise Christians need to examine this very carefully because it may be happening in your jurisdiction which means the devil himself is managing the slander. And many candidates may be innocent of this fraud being done behind their backs. In this area we traced money from many other states and sources.

God know where those recording of the words of evil men are kept and He can bring them back to our ears.

A second prayer is also effective. It is the EXPOSURE prayer. Ask God to reveal what is going on.

Matthew 10:26 Fear them not therefore: for there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; and hid, that shall not be known.

For many years church people stayed away from politics but the Bible has another command. There it is in the Bible – a prayer about a cover-up.

Ephesians 5:11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.

Another word for reproof is rebuke or reprimand. We are not to let them get away with this.

You can consider this the best group of prayers for any election at any time, including those happening in foreign nations. After all, God is god of the whole universe, not just we Westerners.

You have your marching orders.

What Impeachment Costs the Nation

Today, a teaching from Mario Murillo. Click below or read here.

What you are watching unfold in the House of Representatives is not simple hatred, it is something deeper. It is total desperation. The Democrat elite are feverishly conducting a sham trial because they don’t know what else to do. However, this impeachment is simply one more of the same tactics they have been using all along.

It all began the night Hillary lost. They never imagined Trump would win. They had no contingency plan in case Trump won. Not even the hare when he was racing the tortoise was this overconfident. They were caught flat-footed. That November night in 2016, they became the party with no plan.

Then their worst nightmare began to materialize. Trump began making America great again. They became so desperate that they rooted for the economy to fail. They actually wanted poverty to increase. But most of all, they began to lie—and lie big.

Their next act was straight out of Hitler’s propaganda minister’s playbook.  Joseph Goebbels said, “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it, and you will come to believe it yourself. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.” Today, truth is the enemy of the Democrat Party.

Let’s examine the similarities in Goebbels tactics on behalf of the National Socialist Party and the American Socialist Party.

1. How is it possible for something like the Russian collusion hoax—which has been so utterly discredited—to still have so many who believe in it? Simple: Democrats told the lie often enough for people to believe it.

2. How is it possible that some of the Democrat elite believe it themselves? Goebbels was right, eventually you will come to believe it yourself.

3. The Democrat Party has shut down free speech. They work to destroy witnesses who oppose them. They called for a total information blackout to bury the consequences of their failures in those big cities where they are in power. Their failed policies have bankrupted those cities and turned them into hell holes. To maintain the lie, they summoned their cronies in the media, entertainment, and education to declare war on free speech.

But, when you have the truth you don’t shut down debate. You welcome opposing views. But they can’t, because any scrutiny reveals their monstrous failure.

4. From the moment Trump entered the White House they began their campaign of terror. They have used endless bogus investigations to deflect attention from their abysmal failures. Their tactic of misdirection has kept you and their constituents from seeing that they were doing absolutely nothing for the American people.

How did they get away with doing nothing?  Again, it’s simple: from their perches of power, leftists buttressed the ‘do-nothing congress.’  And their allies in the Fake News were silent. Hollywood celebrities glorified anything that was done to stop Trump. Democrats took an oath to serve the American people, and then lied through their teeth.

How right was Goebbels? “The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie.”

5. They began to ask born again Christians to get out of the way. They celebrate abortions, calling them ‘magical.’ They attack the church at every turn. They check off every box of immorality. They have embraced atheism as they have made it crystal clear that believers are their enemy.

https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2019/12/09/abortion-funders-christmas-theme-abortions-are-magical/

6. And finally, there is the impeachment debacle. When you look into Nancy Pelosi’s eyes you see perplexity. She knows it is all smoke and mirrors. She can barely read the charges against Trump with a straight face. Democrats are starting to show liar fatigue…

So why do they keep going? For the same huge reason they started down this road to perdition: they fear Trump will be reelected.  They know they have a clown car full of candidates. Even Michael Bloomberg believes it. He said, “Trump will eat them alive.”

Here’s what terrifies them: If Trump can get this much done even with the total war Democrats have waged on him…what could he do in a second term with a mandate the Democrats can’t stop, and they face the specter of losing power in the House and Senate.

Why do they keep going? Why are they risking a tsunami of a backlash from the American people? Why persist in doing something that is so disastrous?

For the answer to that, we can turn to Macbeth. In the play, Macbeth kills King Duncan, Banquo, and Macduff’s family in response to the prophesies of the witches. He killed Duncan to make the first of the prophesies come true. Then he killed Banquo and Macduff in a vain attempt to PREVENT the other prophesies from coming true.

After these murders, he dreams he is in a river of blood. What he says next explains the Democrat Party’s descent into total self-destruction: “I am in blood stepped in so far that should I wade no more, returning were as tedious as go o’er.” Democrats feel that. They are in so deep that they feel they have no choice but to go through with it.

So once again, they must lie, break the law, cast aside rules and abandon all reason, because backing down now will be as tedious as going through with it.

You are watching spiritual warfare in its purist form. Every Christian must understand this or they cannot take the proper stand against it.

Let every believer learn a lesson. You may be able to defeat the prophecies of witches…but you cannot defeat the prophecies of God.

“Many are the plans of man, but it is God’s plans that will stand.” (Proverbs 19:21)

DO YOU FEEL A CALLING TO SAVE AMERICA? YOU NEED TO READ MARIO’S NEW BOOK VESSELS OF FIRE AND GLORY.

This book would make a nice Bible study tool in your church.

Get the Church out of the Foxholes

If you want to make sense of the Old Testament books, read The Message.

Here, 1 Samuel 13:6-7 we find that prolonged loss in battle finds the Israelites hiding in foxholes.

6-7 When the Israelites saw that they were way outnumbered and in deep trouble, they ran for cover, hiding in caves and pits, ravines and brambles and cisterns—wherever. They retreated across the Jordan River, refugees fleeing to the country of Gad and Gilead. But Saul held his ground in Gilgal, his soldiers still with him but scared to death.

The Philistines had disarmed them.

That describes today’s American culture, turned over to the enemies of not just Yahweh but of a healthy culture. America today is a moral sinkhole. The details on sex-trafficking are enough in themselves but there is also the statistics that 43% of males spend hours watching pornography which encourages rape, incest and every form of perversion – monkey see, monkey do.

Anarchists in charge

A small group of Congressmen and women are trying to overturn the results of a legal election because they do not share the same personal opinions of the current President. There is no crime named in this impeachment. The school systems are teaching socialism by example, and millions of Millennials have few civic skills to prepare them for what is coming, all issues they must eventually face.

Sanctuary cities are enclaves of civil disobedience sheltering the self-willed. Portions of the nation are literally burning up; others have no water. Yahweh Himself said he uses the weather to bring judgment on sin. (See the book of Amos.) And groups of people are so anti-truth they insist they are another gender, something they cannot prove scientifically, and then they demand special policies to support this nonsense. You are what your DNA says you are. Period.

Where is the church

the salt of the earth which is supposed to cleanse the society? Hiding out.

How can we get back into the war. There is nothing in our Bible which says Christians are to be isolated from political decisions. On the contrary, we are to be Change Agents in the world, not just as Christian missionaries in religious work, but as salt and light in business, education, law, social work, food service, retail, nongovernmental operations, transportation, the justice system, prisons, sports, everywhere. Because if we are not, nature abhors a vacuum and the devil will come in like a flood. That is our call to arms.

How did Communism become a religion?

Godfather, Saul Alinsky

Saul David Alinsky (January 30, 1909 – June 12, 1972) was an American community organizer and writer. He is generally considered to be the founder of modern community organizing, a process of replacing representative democracy with a communist dictatorship.

His book Rules for Radicals. contain ways to create a state of total control:

There are 8 levels of control that must be obtained before you are able to create a social state. The first is the most important.

Communists control 8 areas of living

1) Healthcare – Control healthcare and you control the people

2) Poverty – Increase the Poverty level as high as possible, poor people are easier to control and will not fight back if you are providing everything for them to live.

3) Debt – Increase the debt to an unsustainable level. That way you are able to increase taxes, and this will produce more poverty.

4) Gun Control – Remove the ability to defend themselves from the Government. That way you are able to create a police state.

5) Welfare – Take control of every aspect of their lives (Food, Housing, and Income)

6) Education – Take control of what people read and listen to – take control of what children learn in school.

7) Religion – Remove the belief in the Yahweh from the Government and schools.

8) Class Warfare – Divide the people into the wealthy and the poor. This will cause more discontent and it will be easier to take (Tax) the wealthy with the support of the poor.

How communism is a religion?

This community organizer seeks to remove from individuals all those areas of decision-making and life skills which are, for the Christians, the responsibility and blessings of God Himself.

  • how we teach our young,
  • how we relate in peace and harmony with others,
  • how we live together with others under a government,
  • how we spend out money and how we make our money,
  • how we select and pay doctors and medical care
  • to whom do we owe honor and allegiance
  • how we solve problems

Every aspect of life becomes the communists’ goal, and this is what they have now in Venezuela, North Korea, China (although the system is cracking and coming down), Yemen, North Sudan, some parts of Europe, and the Scandinavian states which embrace socialism, or Communism-Lite.

Control systems calcify

American schools and politics are increasingly infected with all of the above goals of the control freaks. But who benefits? Not the people, only the control freaks at the top of the pile.

Fear dominates people in power too long

Why do these nations fail? The fatal flaw is lack of dynamism, that is the ability to change. Systems of control become increasingly rigid and dominated by fewer and fewer leaders who fear loss of their power and add layer upon layer of regulation. The populace is stifled and eventually it comes crashing down, whether in North Korea or California.

To study government, look at what is missing

While the control systems are colorful, varied and diverse, the religions which support them are not complex. Religion boils down to who is in control – is it Yahweh or man? And that explains why communism is a religion.

In 1969, Hillary Rodham wrote a 92-page senior thesis for Wellesley College about community organizer Saul Alinsky

The Bible speaks on Pornography

The Ministry of the Watchmen

The watchman for the city stands at attention on the city’s walls and looks into the distance to warn of impending attack from the enemy. He/she also can see the sins of the city.  The walls are salvation and the gates symbolize praise.  When Nehemiah went back to Jerusalem, his first duty was to repair the broken down walls.  The salvation message is the first thing to be restored.  Then the gates are praise; they are repaired next.

Wherever you are, take up your post and come against the devil and his friends.  Bind them, cast them out, expose their lies, in Jesus’ name.  God wants this country back as the harvest is great.   There are great, earth-shaking events on the horizon.  I can see them from my post. Blessings to you all.

Who is the King of Hell?

If you said “Satan” you are wrong. The scriptures make it clear that Jesus and Jesus alone is King of King and Lord of Lords.

http://Revelation 19:16 And He has on His robe and on His thigh a name written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.

His personal sacrifice on the cross won for Him the complete management of the universe. Colossians is helpful here, though often ignored in our Bible reading.lakeof-fire

Colossians 1:15-18 We look at this Son and see the God who cannot be seen. We look at this Son and see God’s original purpose in everything created. For everything, absolutely everything, above and below, visible and invisible, rank after rank after rank of angels—everything got started in him and finds its purpose in him. He was there before any of it came into existence and holds it all together right up to this moment. And when it comes to the church, he organizes and holds it together, like a head does a body.

Jesus is the Glue holding the universe together

Before you laugh about this, keep in mind that astronomers recognize that there is something in so-called empty space.  They liken it to a net or gaseous medium. https://www.thoughtco.com/whats-in-the-space-between-stars-3073688

Christians  now have authority over the demonic

As the one who created all the angels, including those who rebelled and became demonic, Jesus still is boss over them no matter where they are.  He gave to us, to His believers the authority to control these demonic forces in His name.  But do we do this?

Jesus said, “Luke 10:19 Behold, I give unto you power (Greek; authority) to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power (Greek: power) of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.” Demons have power but YOU have the authority.
In other words, the control of the demonic on the earth today belongs in the hands of the believers.  Jesus will deal with Hell and its residents  in due time.  We will not be there.

Witches vs. Trump & How to Dispatch Them

Print Friendly and PDF

The BBC and other reliable news organizations have reported, starting in 2017, an international process of cursing our President by self-proclaimed witches.
https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-39090334

These people don’t go away simply because we don’t take them seriously. This is not to be confused with the witch hunt stuff from the Department of Justice or the FBI, or the constant barrage of accusations from the television pundits looking for ratings and advertising income.

Witches bind the President

The witches tell their followers to “bind” the President so he cannot speak or function. Why would this group bother? While it has not been stated Donald J. Trump has set a moral baseline while he is in the White House, from an end to fraudulent entitlement programs and abusers to halting payment to abortion providers from public funds. Whatever their reasons, clearly for eighteen months this has not worked.

The Bible says that binding is done “in the Name, (hence authority) of Jesus” and requires the person doing the binding to be a member of Jesus’ Kingdom not any other kingdom, natural or spiritual. So simply saying “I bind you in the name of Jesus” has no power if Jesus has not given you His authority to use.

Using “Jesus” Name is like a credit card

It is just like using a credit card with someone else’s name on it. They can give you the right to use the card and so you can buy something. But if not, you are a fraud and the sale will be rejected – be of no value to you. If fact you may be charged with a crime.

Jesus’ provides this power to His people and no one else. Matthew 16:29 from an expanded version:

MI will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; and whatever you bind (declare to be improper and unlawful) on earth must be what is already bound in heaven; and whatever you loose (declare lawful) on earth must be what is already loosed in heaven.

Here is a prayer against witchcraft of this type allegedly from Kat Kerr but I am not sure. In any event, it is a good one.

Believers bind the witches

AGAINST WITCHCRAFT by Kat Kerr: 

Father, on behalf of Your plans, right now for our country. Father, I step into my place of authority and I choose to take power over all the power of the enemy and the demonic operating in any acts of witchcraft or violence over these next few months and their appointed times and before their appointed times can come.

Father, we command the Host of Heaven to go and pull down every stronghold of the demonic controlling every act of the witchcraft, where there are witches, warlocks, wizards, it doesn’t matter who it is they are NOT above the power of God and we command the Host to shred every platform of those witchcraft people standing and operating from – pull down every potion, every spell, it doesn’t matter what it is. Father, we nullify all of it and sever their plans coming against Trump, Pence, all his administration against the Body of Christ who voted in Your man.

They are messing with Your plans. – you are messing with the Most Highs plans and He knows where you live. We send them in full force – all in agreement go NOW Host and make toast of the enemy and his plans to bring destruction against God’s chosen in the White House. We stand up in behalf of America, we stand up and send the Host to ALL the Body of Christ who voted for Trump for divine protection – the enemy will be blinded to us and powerless to know who we are in Jesus’ Mighty Name. To God be ALL the Glory. Amen!!

A final reminder. This prayer has power only if you have been given the authority to speak it. “As my Father has sent me, so send I you.” John 20:21

Judging from the results, cursing and spells have not stopped the president.

The Sick One is Lord of the Home

We bemoan divorce statistics which do not appear to improve. But divorce is not the cause but the result of family dysfunction, and  what ruins the home ruins society. The problem always goes back to whoever is ruling the family.  Where one person is sick that person dominates family life.

Who is Lord of the Home

It never starts out that way. Newly-weds are the most positive, hopeful group of all, filled with the best expectations for a happy home, prosperous and stable, even when they themselves are neither.

But then circumstances change. And God does not change circumstances; He changes people who then deal with circumstances.  We may pray for different circumstances- more money, more power, a better location, more education – whatever – but when we are in His will He changes us.

God’s purpose is to bring us individually into conformity to His will and His plans. God is smarter than we are. (You’d be surprised how many do not believe this.)

What is the Will of God

Christian counselors will tell you the most common need people desire is “to know the will of God.” Well – here it is: 1 Thessalonians 4:3  For this is the will of God, even your sanctification… In street language that means “clean up your act.”

Bad attitudes and behavior must go.  This passage mentions specifically fornication, i.e. sex outside of marriage, as being the first step for coming into conformity with God. It is routinely violated these days and the results are everywhere.

But the rest must go too – unforgiveness, selfishness, passive aggressive behavior, and aggressiveness as well, control freakishness, greed, envy, jealousy, self-will and refusal to change. The list is long.

To our newlyweds everything for a while is fine and then – loss of a job, a miscarriage, an accident, a car breaks down, the untimely death of a relative, a house fire. You name it.

This is the fallen world we live in. We do not have Utopia here, nor will we get it. What will we do? How do we react? God wants us to seek Him in this situation.

Reactions to Evil

And here is the awful truth. We become depressed, we blame others … the president, our parents, our teachers, our church. We drink to excess or seek an affair, or change jobs.  Allowed to continue we become the Sick Man of the home and our problem becomes the lifestyle of everyone else. The children stay away or play basketball outdoors til midnight to avoid contact with the sick. Or they lock their bedroom door and play music on headphones or watch TV to block out reality. I know a dozen people who married right out of high school to escape the sick home. 100 years ago the Poor Man’s Divorce – just leaving town – was common.  With social security numbers and DNA you can’t do that anymore. Some people leave the country if they can afford it.

Psychologists learned that  family members can become physically ill when the Sick Lord rules – stomach cramps, depression, suicide, asthma, migraines, truancy, drugs.  Children blame themselves for divorce. “If I had been a good child, this would not have happened.”  So the kid pours the booze down the sink. It’s an expensive drain cleaner  – don’t bother. Removing an inanimate object cures nothing.

Frustration, despair ensures and finally separation and divorce. Yes, things are better, the Sick Lord is no longer in charge but new problems develop – mainly financial. And society suffers another small breakdown.

Intervention

What is the answer? A child must inform a trusted adult. Adults can try intervention which is a practical means of going back to the original problem and solving it.  Even if it is years ago we can do that because God is in eternity and time is no problem to Him if the participants are alive.

My friend and her two adult daughters packed daddy’s bag, put it in the trunk and Daddy in the car.  They drove to the airport, handed him a ticket to the Mayo Clinic and said, “Quit alcohol and remain sober or don’t come home.” This kind of intervention takes a group of people, not just one.

It worked. He never again touched alcohol, but his heart was not changed.  His whole body showed the grief he had over giving up his beloved Brandy and he died a few years later. To quit your problem does not necessarily change your heart.  But it is the first step.

God intervened in the life of a teenager whose mother planned to kill her. A neighbor by accident discovered the plot and called authorities. When I say “by accident” I really mean that someone prayed. You can always intervene with prayer – and it is legal and silent.

If someone brandishes a loaded gun at you, call the police. You need a public record of this event.  You do not say, “Oh, he’ll get over it.” Evil allowed to fester eventually takes over and becomes uncontrollable.

Decide to Resist Evil

Every event and change in your life calls for a response or a reaction. God is giving you the option to do it His Way or your way. The answers are all in the book – the Bible.  Churches may or may not help.  They are people driven and people are flawed.

Blessed is He who does God’s will first.

The Kingdom of Heaven (God) vs. Heaven

Print Friendly and PDF

Defining Heaven vs. the Kingdom of Heaven or God

The gospels frequently mention both the Kingdom of Heaven and the Kingdom of God.  Reading the King James Version, one might think these are two separate places, but there is a reason for the difference in language.

Matthew uses the term kingdom of heaven exclusively.  This is to be expected of a Jew who dares not mention the name of God.  Even today you will read statements from Jews who carefully put a hyphen or underline between G and D (G_d or G-d) as to not breathe the name of the Almighty.  On only five occasions in Matthew the Kingdom of God is used. Luke and Mark use the term Kingdom of God exclusively. The book of John uses the Kingdom of God only twice.

Kingdom of Heaven & Kingdom of God the Same

So what is it?  The kingdom of heaven and the kingdom of God refer to the same place but Heaven is a separate place. In heaven, God is in charge.  Jesus prayed for this version of heaven, that is where God is in charge come to earth so we can enjoy it here and now, not wait until after we die. From the Lord’s prayer:

Matthew 6:10 Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. We are to seek it first so we can enjoy it here.

Jesus’ parables about the kingdom emphasized that with the proper attitude you could enjoy the kingdom right now.

Matthew 10:7 And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand.

What is The Kingdom

The Kingdom of God is defined in Romans 14:17.  For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.

No, we do not need to wait until we die to have righteousness, peace and joy or any part thereof.

Matthew 6:33  But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

The Kingdom is Won by Our Spiritual Warfare

Having sought the kingdom, how do you know you have a portion of it? You know you are a kingdom person by your warfare against the demonic world.

Matthew 12:28 But if I cast out devils by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God is come unto you.  I feel sure the Pharisees and Sadducees in Jesus’ time scratched their heads over this one. In fact they called him names!

The kingdoms of heaven (God) are distinct from Heaven, a place distinct from planet earth, our final reward.  While we have the demonic to deal with here and now, in heaven Satan and his henchmen are conquered.  In fact, because there is no evil in heaven, there is no reason for them to be there.  Evil is God’s way of requiring us to make a decision – on earth – of whom we are to worship and obey.

Today’s Victory is Over the Demonic World

The victory of the kingdom of God (heaven) is the victory over the demonic world.  This is shown in the scripture about Peter being given the keys to death and hell.

Matthew 16:  18 And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.

19 And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.

Read Peter 1 and 2

Now that I know that Peter was given the keys to handling the demonic world, I think I shall read the two books of Peter again.  I do not want to miss the Kingdom if it is so close by.

The Book of Mormon (stage show) and Demonic Attack

I was innocently changing channels when I heard this song -the words, curses and demons -met my ear.  Since this is something I know about, I stopped to listen. A man is singing about how demons are attacking his mind – guilt, fear, anger, revenge, homosexuality, regret, confusion, lying, for starts. He is told to turn it off by his Mormon leader.

It doesn’t work, and it is not supposed to work.  Mental disciple is important but getting rid of demons is not only deliberate mind control.  Demons are spirit beings and must be dealt with by the Spirit of man through the Spirit of God. The answer is not in the Book of Mormon or any other man-made book.

Here are the lyrics of this song.

ELDER MCKINLEY
I got a feelin’ that you could be feelin’
A whole lot better than you feel today
You say you got a problem…well, that’s no problem!
It’s super easy not to feel that way
When you start to get confused because of thoughts in your head –
Don’t feel those feelings – hold them in instead!

Turn it off!
Like a light switch
Just go ‘click’!
It’s a cool little Mormon trick
We do it all the time

When you’re feeling certain feelings that just don’t seem right
Treat those pesky feelings like a reading light –

And turn ’em off!
Like a light switch
Just go ‘bap’!
Really, what’s so hard about that?
Turn it off!
Turn it off!

ELDER CHURCH
When I was young, my Dad would treat my Mom real bad
Every time the Utah Jazz would lose
He’d start a-drinkin’, and I’d start a-thinkin’
How’m I gonna keep my Mom from getting abused?
I’d see her all scared and my soul was dyin’!
My Dad would say to me, ‘Now don’t you dare start crying!’

Turn it off!
Like a light switch
Just go ‘flick’!
It’s our nifty little Mormon trick!
Turn it off!
Turn. It. Off!

ELDER THOMAS
My sister was a dancer, but she got cancer
The doctor said she still had two months more
I thought she had time, so I got in line
For the new iPhone at the Apple Store
She laid there dying with my Father and Mother
Her very last words were, “Where is my brother?”

Turn it off! (Yeah!)
Bid those sad feelings adieu!
The fear that I might get cancer too…

[laughter]

ELDER MCKINLEY
When I was in fifth grade, I had a friend Steve Blade (Oooh, Steve Blade…)
He and I were close as two friends could be (We could be close…)
One thing led to another, and soon I would discover (Wow!)
I was having really strange feelings for Steve…
I thought about us on a deserted island (We’re all alone…)
We’d swim naked in the sea, and then he’d try and –

Woah! Turn it off!
Like a light switch
There it’s gone! (Good for you!)
My hetero side just won!
I’m all better now
Boys should be with girls – that’s Heavenly Father’s plan
So, if you ever feel you’d rather be with a man –
Turn it off!

ELDER PRICE
Well, Elder McKinley, I think it’s okay that you’re having gay thoughts. Just so long as you never act upon them.

ELDER MCKINLEY
No, ’cause then you’re just keepin’ it down
Like a dimmer switch on “low”… (On “low”…)
Thinking nobody needs to know (Uh oh…)
But that’s not true!
Being gay is bad, but lying is worse
So just realize you have a curable curse –
And turn it off! (Turn it off!)
Turn it off!

Turn it off!

Now, how do you feel?

ELDER PRICE
The same.

ELDER MCKINLEY
Then you’ve only got yourself to blame
You didn’t pretend hard enough
Imagine that your brain is made of tiny boxes
Then find the box that’s gay and CRUSH IT!
Okay?

ELDER PRICE
No, no…I’m not having gay thoughts!

ELDER CUNNINGHAM
Alright! It worked! (Yay!)

He turned it off…
Turn it off…
Turn it off!
Turn it off! (Turn it off!)
Like a light switch
Just go ‘click’! (Click click!)
What a cool little Mormon trick (Trick trick!)
We do it all the time!

When you’re feelin’ certain feelings that just don’t seem right
Treat those pesky feelings like a reading light
And turn it off!
Like a light switch on a cord
And now he isn’t gay any –

Turn it, turn it, turn it, turn it…
Turn it, turn it, turn it, turn it…
Tuuuuuurn it…
Turn it off!
…Off!!!

First, feelings have nothing to do with it.  Demons create the negative feelings of lust, or envy, rage, the list goes on.  The devil’s purpose is to steal, kill and destroy you with evil thoughts and emotions.

How do you react?  Immediately you eliminate contact with the problem source.  If you are watching porn, then make a covenant with your eyes, a term from the book of Job, and never watch again.  You can set your compute to warn you or eliminate that.

More importantly you must recognize that the devil, the enemy of your soul, is out there looking for ways to destroy you at any point where you let evil take over your mind.  If it is music stop that too.  If you have unsavory friends, get better friends.

But the best warfare is to say out loud (the bathroom is a good place for this as others might not think this is cool) and say the following as loudly as you can.

“Satan get off my back and out of my life.  I know who you are and what you are doing in Jesus name flee from me and never come back.”  Then announce the troubles he is causing,

People ask me, why the loud voice?  Because demons will pretend to be deaf.  And if you shout, you sound mad  If you whisper a rebuke no one will take you seriously.

My daughter had a terrible stomach ache when she was in elementary school.  She went to the girls room and shouted just as I have instructed you.  You do not need to be 12 to do this; you can be any age.  The authority of Jesus’ name does not depend on your age or status.  Be aggressive.  What about “steal, kill and destroy” sounds passive to you?

Tell the devil off whenever you need and this will clean up your mind and your life.  But turning something off simply won’t work.  If it did work it would be in the Bible.

The Borders of the Mind

For a large troop of Americans, 2009 to 2016 was a stop action movie where figures are frozen in time waiting for something to happen, for someone to flip a switch so they could return to the business of life, or for that matter any kind of business. It reminded me of the Apple advertisement of 1984 when brain-dead sycophants goose-stepped to oblivion and technology crashed through to wake them up.

And then schazam! Candidate Trump, the exact opposite of what would be chosen by Central Casting comes on the scene slaughtering sacred cows right and left, and leaving us in the valley of decision.  This is the designated time in our personal or private history where we decide which side we are on. A parade of miscreants and arrogant managers paraded across our screens, the old panegyrics about Obama were either hotly but ineffectively defended by his supporters, and the truth about almost every conceivable misdeed for decades was exposed.  And that not by President Trump, but simply by someone “being there.” Every accuser met some kind of personal ax.

While the President was out glad-handing international power brokers and luring dissident employers back home, 20 plus Congresspersons left office and at least that many men who could not keep their zippers up or their mouths closed were cleaning out their desks. The Media, reading in unison from a teleprompter in LaLa land focused on Russian chicanery and found it in Hillary’s own documents, along with the supposedly squeaky clean FBI – like Squeaky Fromme?

We know What, and soon we will know much more, but Why? Because the voting public needs to have secure borders of their minds as well as the national jurisdiction. But for that they needs facts and truth; as the media grinds on, there appears to be fewer of them.

Everything is not good and right. Everyone is not supposed to be here. Every theology, every philosophy, every governmental system and every opinion is not equal. Every decision is not right or conversely, is not wrong. The popular relativism leads nowhere and is a mental squirrel cage of circular thinking.  Cultures are not equal, and societies and governments are not morally equivalent as any even sloppy examination would demonstrate. To abdicate responsibility is still a decision.

We must know who we are and what we are supposed to do.  We have decided not to be the world’s 911 police radio.  We have decided not to let everyone immigrate here just because they want to be Americans.  We have decided that we need to handle some problems ourselves, like the opioid crisis, like the problem of nearly one half our criminals in prison being illegals, or states that show contempt for the federal government by creating sanctuary cities, all issues which we allegedly solved at the Battle of Gettysburg.  States rights we have yes; States wrongs, no.

The next elections are not so much about Donald Trump in spite of Media hype to that effect. It is about us.  Will we accept the truth and become free, or walk away from our own generation’s responsibility. I am staying in the fight for America.  Are you?

Why does Islam (the Muslims) think they are entitled to the land of Israel?

Israel vs. Islam

Quick answer: They think it belongs to them as their inheritance through Ishmael.

Long answer: It belongs to the real heir, Isaac.  The Bible records important dreams, including God’s promises. Abram, later named Abraham by God, got into a royal mess because he took a promise in a dream and tried to make it come true on his own. God promised Abram, then childless, that he would be the father of thousands.  The temporary and consequently disastrous solution was to have a child through his house maid.  That first son was Ishmael known today as those nations constituting the political religion of Islam.  A few years later the 2nd and promised son Isaac, is born – the real heir.

In virtually every society except the USA blessings and rewards go to the eldest son, not the younger.  You see the problem.  Modern day Islam thinks it is entitled to the entire inheritance from Abraham and willing to strap bombs on their children to force the issue.  Islam is avenging itself because of something that happened 3,500 years ago, and the likelihood these people will change their minds is Zero.

The land of Canaan (now Israel, formerly Palestine) goes to Isaac and his descendants, hence the battle over a tiny piece of land no bigger than New Jersey.  And Europe who tried to pretend for decades that it was so magnanimous and egalitarian is now on High Alert. Iran, even though it is originally Persian, is also controlled by Islamic leaders and part of the enemies of Israel and the West.
