Are You Living the Fulfilled Life?

Unfortunately, most who call upon the Name of Jesus Christ are not living the fulfilled life. Most are controlled by their schedules, rushing from one event to another with little time to relax in between. Worry, anxiety, and stress have become so commonplace, that many don’t realize how much it is affecting their physical and mental health. They don’t realize that when people blow up in public that they have reached their breaking point. When this happens, they don’t understand that anxiety and stress have won the day and crushed another soul. These people are not living the fulfilled life in Christ. Most don’t realize that in the beginning technology was created to save us time and to be more productive. However, what we as a people have gained in productivity, we have lost tenfold, by leading us into a life of captivity to our devices. From morning till night many are glued to their cellphones and computer screens, not just for work, but for all of life. Schedules, alarms, notifications, popups, email, and text messages, continually pull us in one direction then another. Then whatever free time we thought we had, is now gobbled up by the ever-growing social medial platforms, all competing for your time, your money, and your soul. Dear friends, this is not the life that we were created for. If you are interested in living the fulfilled life, then continue reading.

Once you have tasted the good life or the new life in Christ, then you will have no desire to return to your previous life. Jesus Christ said, “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). Dear children, I don’t need to convince you that the god of this world (Satan) is very busy destroying life by leading them into captivity. On the other hand, Jesus Christ came to bring us life beyond our wildest imagination. Once the shackles of slavery have been broken, then we will gloriously live life as God, our Creator, had intended. We will live a peaceful life allowing things to happen as God has ordained them from the dawn of creation. Anxious thoughts and unyielding stress will be put on notice that God’s beloved children will no longer abide by their demonic control. We will be free at last to serve our Creator in heavenly bliss, as time appears to stop. Hallelujah! Clearing your schedules and allowing God’s will to be done, will be the most earth-shattering thing you will ever do other than your original plea for Christ to come into your life and make you into a new creation (see II Corinthians 5:17).

We will need to completely rearrange our life and thoughts through discipline so that the God of peace can freely work in our lives so that we can live the fulfilled life. “Freely work” let that sink in! God cannot freely work if He doesn’t have complete control of our schedules and everything that we allow to pass through our minds. For most, they will need to pull back from their cellphones, and computers giving their time back to God. This is not just a designated amount of time that we set aside for God. We set aside the entire day. That is, every action and every thought are brought before the Lord before we act upon it or before we dwell upon the thought. This will take discipline, remembering to ask God for our daily marching orders. It will take discipline to always ask, “what would Jesus do,” before every action? We don’t hear much about discipline these days but it’s essential if we are serious about living the fulfilled life. Discipline is doing what is right through continuous practice, again and again. We will start with the least difficult discipline and then move to the more challenging. This Christian discipline opens the door to a blissful life in Christ beyond the comprehension of the natural man. It opens the door to a fulfilled life in Christ.

Let me introduce you, once again, to our God of all creation. Our God is not angry, nor is He vengeful. On the other hand, He is a God of peace, love, and joy. So, our first discipline for all of life is, “Rejoice in the Lord alway: and again I say, Rejoice” (Philippians 4:4). The operative word here is “always.” When we first receive Christ in our lives this is a very easy thing to do, “rejoice in the Lord.” However, in time as we run continuously into the hatefulness and depressing sadness of the world, it becomes more difficult. So, it must become a discipline of remembering all that God has done for us through His amazing providence, where He has, on a number of occasions, worked everything out for the best. It’s also remembering that God is our wonderful counselor and the worker of astonishing miracles snatching people from the fiery pits of hell, all of which bring great joy to our hearts. This great joy established in time is beyond anything we will ever experience. The early Christians were known as happy people who were always rejoicing in the Lord turning the world upside down. As you rejoice in the Lord, you too will witness its profound effect upon the world, causing them to ask, “Why are you so different.” The key to living the fulfilled life in Christ is having God always walking with us in our great joy openly and sincerely expressed to the world.

The second discipline that must be practiced every moment of every day, in every situation is, “Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand” (Philippians 4:5). As already stated, these get a bit more difficult as we proceed, but not impossible for God’s elect children. Our greatest motivator for remaining pure in an impure world is remembering that the “Lord is at hand.” This not only means that God can come back at any moment, which He can, but it also means that He is observing our every behavior, good or bad. The clear interpretation of this word “moderation” is that our behavior and character should be so solidified in Christ that nothing could sway us to participate in the world’s unruly or unethical behavior. It’s difficult to take one step into the world and not be tempted by those around you, either in person, in print, or on the cellphone. So, we must be constantly aware of this, so that we can immediately turn away, not gaze upon it, or participate in it. This is crucial if you are serious about having God walk with you every moment of every day, which is our true path to living a fulfilled life in Christ. The wonders that God wants to show you are well beyond what the world has to offer. There is nothing that can match the mystery of God’s beautiful creation and the re-created life of a sinner reflecting His wonderous glory. Living the fulfilled live is truly a foretaste of heaven on earth.

Are you ready for the third discipline? The English Standard Version of the Bible says, “do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God” (Philippians 4:6). This is a hard saying for those who are living their own lives according to their decisions, their schedules, and their planning. These people will always have anxiety and even stress because things simply aren’t working out as they had planned. The pressure to follow their desires, not accomplished, sends them straight to the counselor’s office or pleading with their doctors for more medication because they have discovered that stress can cause physical problems. By the time we get to the third discipline, we should already be practicing the first two, which opens our eyes to God’s beautiful providential plan for our lives. So, if we see things not working out, that’s creating anxiety, then we need to earnestly pray again asking for God’s perfect plan and His will in the specific circumstance that we are facing. When we pray in faith believing, the Bible says, “And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:7). We will never live the fulfilled life in Christ if we allow stress or anxiety to re-enter our lives taking us hostage to do the will of the enemy. So, dear children, follow onlyGod’s beautiful plans for your lives allowing Him to walk with you every moment of every day, then you will experience His magnificent peace that defies understanding.

The final discipline that allows us to experience the fulfilled life in Christ is to put a sentinel at the gate of our minds to examine every thought that seeks to enter. Yes, this is the most difficult but not impossible for God’s elect children. This can be especially difficult when we are out among the pagan but don’t be fooled, evil thoughts can come at any time, catching you completely off-guard. So, we must walk with God, every moment of every day. The Bible says, “Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things” (Philippians 4:8). So, we must always cast our minds onto those things that please the Lord. It is helpful to always ask the question of every thought that wants to enter our mind, “Is this thought pleasing to the Lord?” And if the answer is no, then cast it out immediately; don’t dwell on it for even a millisecond. Cast it out!  When we follow these blessed disciplines, they will help us to walk closer to the Lord, Jesus Christ, which will lead us to experience the fulfilled life beyond our wildest dreams. All glory to God.

We Are Forward-Looking People

There is something uniquely different about God’s children. We rarely look back either to reminisce or painfully evaluate past failures. We are a forward-looking people, a true anomaly in the modern world. This is something fallen humanity would love to experience all the time. However, if they are honest, they spend a great deal of their time looking back. They look back not only to evaluate past failures or reminisce but to do something far more damaging. Their obsession of always looking back, further than current events, enters into a deep chasm of captivity. Clearly, this abyss of one’s personal journey is not the same thing as the concrete historical events etched into the annuals of a nation’s heritage. It is, on the other hand, a collection of beliefs about oneself that they have adopted over time, which they believe can never change. It is a collection of past events that they believe have had an incurable effect on their physical or psychological wellbeing. As we shall see, these people tend to get trapped in the past causing them unending turmoil, which adversely affects their lives.

Their continued obsession with the past, especially the hurts, real or unreal, magnifies their pain exponentially allowing new powerful emotions to arise. With no warning, these emotions can bring forth disturbing thoughts of hate, revenge, and harboring thoughts of un-forgiveness. As these thoughts are played out again and again it can open Pandora’s box of every psychological problem known to man, thoughts that can also lead to hurting others or even hurting oneself. This obsession of always looking back well beyond current events can lead fallen humanity to even find fault with a Nation’s heritage or its recorded history following the same path of hate, revenge, and un-forgiveness. This is especially true if they are obsessed with the pain, real or unreal, magnified by public opinion or a few bad actors in our day. Either way, the psychological pain is real, which is causing people to strike back at one another with a ferociousness not seen before. It’s causing an unimaginable chaos in the streets of the world as they seek to rewrite history as if that would even make a difference.

As a nation of people, we need to learn how to look forward and stop our obsession with the past. Unfortunately, our fallen nature makes this very difficult, if not impossible, for most. Fallen humanity’s obsession with the past is helped in no small measure by Social Media, News media, and public education. The Good News is we have been given a proven way out of this bondage. When we believe the Gospel of Jesus Christ, He will give us a clean slate. That is, every bad thought, every obsession, and every sin ever committed against a Holy God will be forgiven. The slate will be wiped clean by the precious blood of Jesus Christ who took our place on the Cross. All the sins of the whole world past, present, and future were placed upon Jesus, the Son of God who died in our place and then buried in a tomb. On the third day, Christ rose from the dead to give us a new life, a clean slate. The Bible says, “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new” (II Corinthians 5:17).

We are forward-looking because we have a new life, with a clean slate. Sin no longer has power over us. Why look back on a sin that’s already forgiven? Why look back on an old life that is passing away and no longer has any power over us? Why look back on an old hurt that will no longer affect us? Why look back on an old psychological or emotional struggle that held us in its death grips for so long? No, the Bible says that old things pass away, that they no longer have any hold over us. Praise God! So, the key is, to look forward to our new life in Christ, then you will see the power given to you to shut the door to the old life. You will have power to say no to the old life with its many lies and beliefs that keep pulling you down to the cesspool experienced by fallen humanity, who struggle daily with their many emotional and psychological problems. Do you want that power to forget those past struggles and only look forward to your new life in Christ, then keep reading because it’s only God’s truth that will set you free?

The good news is that you will not need to do this alone. Jesus Christ promised to send us the Helper and that’s exactly what He will do. He will help you to put off the old life just like you would put off an old, soiled outfit. Step by step the indwelling Spirit will remind you not to look back or to dwell on a previous hurt by another person, an organization, or the government. He will teach you the power of forgiveness that will set you free from those who have wronged you or fed you lies for so many years. He will set you free from the many years of self-condemnation by learning how to forgive yourself. He will set you free from your past, believing that you can now become everything in Christ, with no limitations. The power of forgiveness will break the chains of slavery allowing you to always look forward, to be a forward-looking person. No longer being trapped in the past by learning how to forgive and forget is only the first step that must be taken concurrently with putting on the new life in Christ, by looking forward. We look forward to putting on our new life in Christ.

Now that we are free from our old life and no longer feel compelled to constantly look back at a life that no longer exists, then we want to fill up our life with the things of God. As we walk in each of His beautiful commandments, we begin to realize just how different they are from the fallen world. The Bible says, “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD” (Isiah 55:8). The more we put on our new life in Christ, the more we realize that there is a great struggle between the powers of darkness and the ways of God. Satan, our old adversary, seeks to control the entire human race by constantly filling their minds with the things of the world. He wants us so busy and our mind so occupied, that we have no time for God and our new life in Christ. We don’t have to look very far to see how he is doing this through the internet, social media, 24-hour news media, and entertainment on demand. When we come to Christ, then we no longer fill our minds with the things of the world, but with heavenly things so that we can participate in the divine nature (See II Peter 1:4).

Those who try to walk in the world and the Kingdom at the same time won’t need to worry much about the wiles of the devil. On the other hand, if you desire to only walk in the Kingdom then there will be an all-out war. The devil will bring to your memory, again and again, those who have wronged you. Satan is the author of every conspiracy theory having you chase one rabbit after another. He will do everything in his power to cause you to dream endlessly about a brighter future filled with riches, by utilizing the things of the world. Our spiritual weapons are mighty for pulling down strongholds, so let us cast down every vain imagination, every false teaching, every lewd entertainment, every social media post that doesn’t glorify God, and everything else that consumes our time to make us a pawn of the powers of darkness. Let us cast down everything that exalts itself against the knowledge of God. Then let us bring every thought from this point forward into the obedience of Christ (See II Corinthians 10:5). Let us think our thoughts after Christ as we press onto the goal – facing forward and never looking back. Let me leave you with the words of Jesus Christ. The Bible says, “And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God” (Luke 9:62).

Please join me in prayer …

 Good morning Heavenly Father. Oh Lord, we need clarity of thought. We need to recall those Scripture texts that you want us to dwell upon, that would be useful in understanding the day in which we live. Help us, Oh Lord to ignore the distractions caused by others or by our occasional pains and keep our mind focused on you. We completely die to self and ask the indwelling Spirit to take full reign of our lives. We truly desire to become all that you want us to be in this life and in the life to come, in our Heavenly position with you for all eternity. We pray that you continue the transformation process by helping us to fully put off the old life and put on the new life in Christ. There is no greater joy than being filled with your Spirit and thinking your thoughts after you, to truly realize the blessings of what we were originally created to be, and to walk with our Creator. We pray that you help us to complete our tasks for today for which you have called us. We pray this in the glorious Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

Reading from the King James Version, the Bible says,

“Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ” (II Corinthians 10:5).

The Virus, Vaccine, and God’s Truth

What does God say? We have not done extensive research on the subject as scientists, doctors, and conspiracy theorists have done over this past year. On the other hand, we have turned to Almighty God, seeking His answers on this hotly debated subject. We come before God with a clean slate with no preconceptions and with no predetermined agenda. Our only interest is to receive the truth for God’s precious children and for the world at large if they are interested. There has been a lot of debate about where the virus came from. Did it come from a live food market or a Laboratory? Was it simply an accident or was it a biological weapon? Perhaps a bigger question and more importantly, at least for believers, is why did God allow it to happen in the first place? To answer that question, of course, we need to listen, really listen, to God alone (See Jeremiah 33:3). Although we can learn from God’s previous dealings with fallen humanity since the beginning of time, it’s essential to let God speak specifically to this one question that we are asking Him now concerning the virus and later in this article concerning the vaccine.

So, what does God say? His words come loud and clear. They come from the indwelling Spirit as we bend our spiritual ears to listen and also from God’s anointed Word, which are both in agreement. God has not changed in how He deals with fallen humanity. God is not an angry God sending forth bolts of lightning from heaven to sear the pants of His rebellious children. No, He is a loving God who sent His Only Begotten Son to show us the way. Unfortunately, most of fallen humanity has not listened to His Son, then or now. Nor have they listened to all the true prophets coming along and saying the same thing. Fallen humanity is reaping what they have sown (See Galatians 6:7). They are sinking deeper and deeper into the consequences of their sins, which is exactly how God’s wrath works (See Romans 1:18-32). So, hopefully, as you are beginning to see, it makes little difference as to where exactly the virus came from. The point is, fallen humanity was doing something or not doing something that they should have been doing that caused the virus to wreak death and destruction upon the world. It has always worked that way from the beginning.

Instead of following God in His righteousness, fallen humanity has followed Satan in his rebellion against God by walking in all manner of wickedness (See Isaiah 14:12-15). The virus along with the many other diseases are taking their toll upon humanity. Everything we do has an individual and corporate consequence, from polluting the air we breathe to polluting the water we drink and from administering chemicals and toxins into our bodies. We are destroying the earth (See Revelation 11:18). Remember, that when our planet was young with no toxins and chemicals to be digested into the body, some of the ancients lived close to a thousand years (See Genesis 5:27). Unfortunately, even if we decide to live a holy separated life, we will still rest under the same consequences of a dying world that’s polluted with chemicals, toxins, and natural disasters caused by planetary neglect. We now feel fortunate to live beyond seventy-five years in our dying ecosystem. So, let’s be clear, God did not cause the COVID-19 virus, but He did not stop it either, allowing humanity to reap the consequences of their many sins.

Ok, now we turn our attention to the hotly debated vaccine. What is it, really, and should I take it? Let me say upfront, I don’t believe the world is attempting mass suicide because even those in power, making decisions about the vaccine, have children, grandchildren, and love life just as much as you do. This is not some massive plot to turn everyone into zombies so that they can be easily controlled. Nor is this their grand opportunity to put a chip in every person making them worship the coming beast. Fallen humanity has faced this disaster the same way they have faced every disaster since the dawn of time. They had called forth their wise men, their sages, and even their gods to help them solve their problems. Even now, in our modern age, they will still seek the counsel of their learned professors, scientists, and doctors to solve their current dilemma. Have you noticed who’s missing? No one is calling upon the One true God to seek His counsel (See Jeremiah 33:3). They are doing their research, but they are not asking God.

So, what does God say? Thus, saith the LORD of host, “I know that some of you are trying to partially do the right thing. You are trying to clean up your environment by reducing some of the toxins and chemicals that are killing your planet and my children. I know that you are way over your head with this virus because everyone knows that you have changed your methodology in creating this vaccine. It’s not a secret. I must tell you that it will have limited success because every soul’s biology [and DNA] are not exactly the same because of all the toxins from your environment, the chemicals from other drugs they have used, along with many other factors. I don’t fault you for trying to find a cure, but I do fault you for not seeing the major problem that has caused the virus in the first place.” From listening to the indwelling Spirit and my study of Scripture we know that each person must decide for themselves if they want to take the vaccine because as stated each person’s chemistry is different. It should be a choice. However, I believe it’s essential that we do one more thing if we ever hope to survive these plagues descending upon fallen humanity.

We must repent or the plagues will only get worse. I believe we are partially trying to do the right thing by cleaning up the environment but there’s one thing we lack causing things to go from bad to worse. Fallen humanity is still promoting their many prescription drugs for God’s children that have harmful side effects because their bodies were not created for all the toxins and chemicals. Fallen humanity must repent of all their gross immorality even if you attempt to justify it by legalizing it. Just because you have legalized abortion, homosexuality, the transgender, theft, corruption, along with many other sins does not justify them. If you think this virus is bad, what’s coming soon will horrify you. We must all repent before our most Holy God seeking His forgiveness, while we still have time. Please stop debating this topic, putting forth additional conspiracy theories, and get busy calling everyone to repentance. That’s the only true thing that will help. Repent now and seek God’s direction on taking the vaccine, it’s not for everyone, and may not be for you. Let it be your choice alone and then stand firm trusting in God’s mercy.

Please join me in Prayer

Good morning Heavenly Father. We pray for all of your children to stop their endless research for the truth by following the methods of the world. We pray that they will stop their endless research on Google, news media, and social media as if they were their gods. On the other hand, we pray that they will call unto you, the One true God, who has all the answers they seek and so much more. Thank you, Lord, for giving us the indwelling Spirit that always speaks with a soft voice of clarity, that’s so unlike the many confusing voices in the world. As you speak, for those who have studied your holy Scriptures, they will often receive the memory of a verse of Scripture that’s in total agreement with what you are saying in the Spirit. When you speak you always open up the Scriptures to a deeper, often hidden, meaning that we did not see before but so majestically aligns with the rest of Scripture. Thank you, Lord, for not changing but always being the Constant in the universe allowing your beloved children to see the deeper truth if we just ask you and stop our ridiculous research. We pray this in the mighty Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

“Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not” (Jeremiah 33:3).

The New Slave Trade in America

We have all become slaves to very powerful entities without even knowing it. The slave trade is nothing new to an unregenerate world. This slavery has taken on many different forms affecting millions of people in every decade since the dawn of creation. We won’t be fighting for the rights of an enslaved race of people as William Wilberforce did in England many years ago. No, we will be fighting a new slave trade, in our present day, that has captured the souls of all humanity, not just in America. We will still be fighting big money as before, that some say, is holding up the very foundations of our economy. Dear friends, we have become salves to a much greater power than just plantation owners and sugar producers seeking to make a profit by using slaves brought over from Africa. We have unknowingly become slaves to many things which would take more than just this one article to describe. So, we will only concentrate our efforts on one thing that’s holding humanity hostage to a life of slavery.

We as a people have become slaves to our drugs or big Pharma. There is really no end to this slavery. They keep coming up with more drugs, almost daily, to supposedly cure our every physical and mental condition, caused in large part by the introduction of new toxins into our environment, processed foods, and side effects from the drugs. Drugs are a huge topic, consisting of recreational or street drugs, mind altering drugs typically used to treat never-ending psychological disorders, and prescription drugs used to treat our physical problems or relieve every little pain. If you add to this, all the over-the-counter drugs, legalized marijuana, and vitamins, we can easily see how the production of these drugs through the pharmaceutical industry has had a tremendous impact upon the world economy, affecting every area of society. These drugs are easily distributed by street drug dealers, medical doctors, pharmacies, drugstores, and even online stores. However, what will mainly concern us today is the heart-breaking slavery to these drugs, precipitated by flashy advertisements, promising pain free happy lives, enjoying all that life can offer.

Not every drug causes hard core addiction. However, every drug can lead to an unrealized habit of taking the drug for years, continually subjecting our bodies to their side effects that grow worse the more we take the drug. Yes, every drug has a side effect, and our bodies are paying the price physically, psychologically, and even Spiritually. We have unknowingly become slaves to the big pharmaceutical companies. These drugs are not the end of the story. Our slavery runs much deeper. Every year there are new viruses affecting the entire world from the seasonal flu to the latest pandemic of COVID-19. Never fear, for big Pharma rushes to the rescue with another vaccine to solve our problem, which they may, in part, have caused in the first place. It’s not the subject of this article to cast blame. On the other hand, it is my greatest desire to set the captives free from the slavery of these drugs and what they are doing to our bodies. Moreover, how these drugs are adversely affecting our Spiritual life.

Perhaps it is no accident that the word pharmaceutical comes from the Greek word (pharmakeia, a drug, the ministering of drugs) (lit. or fig.) means sorcery, witchcraft that’s used in Galatians 5:22 where the Apostle lists the carnal sins of the flesh. The sorcerers monopolized the word, pharmakeia, for a while in their magical arts and used it in connection to idolatry, which is quite instructive for our current study. God is fiercely opposed to any kind of idolatry because it transfers a person’s trust and worship in someone or something other than having total reliance upon God. Let that sink in. Drugs have become the world’s new idols. Idols that cannot see or talk but can lead the entire world to the altar of worship by depending upon drugs almost exclusively to bring forth health and happiness, apart from depending on God alone. Furthermore, their dependence is so strong that they are willing to overlook the many side-effects that are violating Scripture that says, “If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are” (I Corinthians 3:17).

I know that healthy eating, drinking plenty of water, and exercising will not solve every problem. On the other hand, I am convinced that following and trusting in God’s council alone will solve all of your psychological problems. It will also help you solve many, if not most, of your physical problems through a right mindset, proper discipline, patience and long-suffering. It’s a proven fact that most ailments will just go away on their own if we are patient and learn to endure through the grace of long-suffering (a fruit of the Spirit). Now let me be very clear, I am not suggesting that you just throw away all of your medication. No, you may have been in bondage a very long time and it will take time to break those bondages. It will take time to become free from the shackles of slavery. The good news is you can begin today by believing the Gospel that God is not kidding; that He truly wants to make you into a new creation free from all the bondages of the old life (See II Corinthians 5:17).

So, how do we walk in this freedom? The Bible says, “But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway” (I Corinthians 9:27). A little historical research really brings this verse to life especially if the Spirit is opening the door. “Keep under my body” is to render a knockout blow causing a black and blue eye literally. This is the aim of the Apostle, to render a knockout blow to the old sin nature who wants to feed our vanity, control our every thought, subject our body to the grossest of immorality, and participate in the willful destruction of our bodies. The Apostle’s intent on subjecting his whole body to the Lordship of Jesus Christ is that he would not be considered a “castaway.” If he became a castaway his preaching would be in vain. He would miss the mark and his entrance to heaven. Therefore, he chose freedom in Christ over slavery to the whims and cravings of the body.

We walk in the freedom of Christ by putting our body, especially our old sin nature, under subjection, no longer allowing it to control our every thought and action. This will take a lot of hard work but not impossible for God’s holy children. No, we won’t be beating our body into subjection as some of the ancients did by causing tremendous abuse or damage to their bodies. We will allow the indwelling Spirit to have full reign in our bodies every moment of every day, allowing Him to bring forth and cultivate Spiritual fruit. The Bible says, “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law” (Galatians 5:22-23). This Spiritual fruit in the believer’s life is the key to a healthy body and good mental health. If we consistently put off the old life, the works of the flesh (see Galatians 5:19-21) while at the same time putting on the new life in Christ by allowing the Spirit to bring forth his fruit the shackles of slavery will fall off. This is not wishful thinking, it is reality.

Here is the beauty of God’s truth, experiencing the great exchange that leads to total freedom in Christ.  Put off the old life of idolatry (misplaced trust), sorcery (drug dependence) and put on the new life producing the fruit of longsuffering (enduring the pain) and faith (trusting in God). Yes, there will be a great struggle between the old life and the new life in Christ, but the end result is love, joy, and peace as opposed to a life of hatred, depression, and anxiety. Dear children, allow God to bring healing to your bodies and minds without seeking out the world for their help, that almost always leads to some form of addiction, side effects, and continued slavery.  So, let us become servants to the Father and no longer slaves to the god of this world. Yes, my friends, it is the god of this world and the powers of darkness that have raised up the pharmaceutical industry to put the world’s children into slavery. Just remember, Satan’s desire is to keep everyone drugged, docile, and dependent on him, whereas God’s desire is freedom in Christ. Freedom at last! Amen

Accept the Gift that Keeps Giving

As we face another Christmas in the middle of a plague with the darkness of evil all around us, we must ask the question, “What does the Spirit say to the Churches?” In our amazement, the answer comes quickly. This is your last chance for salvation in Christ. This is your last opportunity to escape the blinding light of evil masquerading as the righteous light of God’s glory. The heavens are perfectly aligned, and a new star is appearing from the two celestial bodies coming close together in the night sky. This will not hail the arrival of the Son of Righteousness as it did two thousand years ago, but it will hail the arrival of the evil son of perdition, the Antichrist. As Christ came to bring hope to the poor and downtrodden, the evil one will also come making his promise to supply your every need. He will boast of his great accomplishments and promise an even brighter future under his anointed leadership. His leadership will be brought forth out of fraud and deception which will miraculously unite all opposing parties to hail his leadership. The whole world will stand in line to congratulate him on his great success in the face of insurmountable odds.

As the plague is finally lifted it will appear to be a new and glorious day full of hope for a world teetering on self-annihilation. Unfortunately, this will only be an allusion, for the captivity of your soul will be in the balance. For many years now the churches of your great land have grown even more lukewarm. Step by step they have assimilated the world’s teachings into their sacred doctrines handed down to them by previous generations. Step by step they have grown lukewarm unable to lead humanity to Christ and the power of His transformation. Instead of transformation, people are taught to embrace their religion and the world mixing the hot water of the world with the cool refreshing waters of Christ’s teachings bringing forth a vile and putrefied lukewarmness. The Bible says, “So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth” (Revelation 3:16). What a tremendously horrible sight to see the end result of many years of embracing the teachings of Christianity while at the same time embracing many of the teachings from the world. This assimilation or integration of psychology, other world religions, and the many perversions in the world have kept most believers from experiencing the joy of transformation in Christ.

Please dear children, before it’s too late and the door of salvation closes, we must invite Christ into our hearts allowing Him full access. We simply cannot expect transformation while still embracing our old sin nature. You must let go. You must let go of those things holding you down or pulling you back. Rebuke those old memories that keep throwing up your old life telling you that you are not worthy or that God could not possibly forgive you for such grievous sins. Rebuke the temptations from the world or from others who want you to join them in the latest enticements that lead you further away from your commitment to the Lord. Allow Jesus Christ to have full access to all of your thoughts and memories allowing the indwelling Spirit to bring about the needed conviction when necessary. Then adhere to the conviction immediately. Stop straddling the Kingdom of God and the world by putting both feet in His Kingdom every moment of every day. Stop trusting the world and its diabolical leadership to bring better days to solve all of your problems. Christ is standing at the door of your heart. Won’t you let Him in?

Jesus Christ is standing at the door of your heart and He is knocking. The Bible says, “Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me” (Revelation 3:20). God will never barge into the lives of fallen humanity. He will never demand their allegiance or worship as the great pretender of righteousness will do, when he comes. Christ will only stand at the door and knock allowing us to hear His voice and respond. If we open the door of our heart, He promises an intimate relationship with us as we “sup with him.” As we drink from the same chalice, filled with wine, symbolizing His precious blood, shed on the Cross for our Salvation, we will experience the cool refreshing waters of forgiveness flowing through our veins. There is no greater joy than having an intimate relationship with Jesus Christ, our risen Lord. Dear children, time is running out, for when the great pretender of righteousness takes his leadership role, it will be too late. Time is running out!

When we invite Christ in, allowing the transformation to take place by giving Christ full access, and keeping both feet in the Kingdom, then we will overcome. Hallelujah! What a glorious day that will be. The Bible says, “To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne” (Revelation 3:21). On the other hand, if we ignore these words, still putting our trust in the coming leadership, then we will not overcome. We will face all the Great Tribulations coming upon the world without God. We will face the coming days without being shielded from His wrath. Dear children, surrender your life completely to Christ now. Open the door! Welcome Him in or back into your life. Trust Him alone to complete the transformation making you into a brand-new creation. Let this be the best Christmas ever by accepting the gift that keeps giving, the gift of eternal life. Dear children, time is running out! We must listen to what the Spirit is saying to the Churches, especially this message to the seventh Church that symbolizes the last Church of the age before Christ’s magnificent return in Glory. Please, accept the Gift that keeps giving, and have a very Merry Christmas.
