Resist the Lies of The Devil by Walking in The Promises

The lies of the devil have caused most of the problems in our world today. It’s not just the lies, but the fact that so many of the world’s population actually believe the lies. Have you ever wondered why there is such an increase in emotional and psychological problems? It’s reported in 2014 that 91% of the population would seek a mental health professional if they had a problem. Have you ever wondered why there is such an increase in drug addiction? It’s also reported that in the same year that 8 million Americans battled both drug addiction and a mental health disorder concurrently. Perhaps the most alarming statistic to me was the increased numbers in suicide globally. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Worldwide, 800,000 people die due to suicide every year, according to the World Health Organization. The shocking fact is the Church is not exempt from these problems. Psychological problems, drug addiction and suicide are caused primarily from listening to the lies of the devil. So, follow me along to discover how to “Resist the lies of the devil by walking in the promises.”

Before we look at the promises let’s look at the lies of the devil that’s causing so much destruction to humanity. The first lie is that the blight of sin can never be truly erased. All the horrible things you ever did in the past or were a witness too will be with you for the rest of your life. No matter how hard you try to move on from the old life it will always be there to pull you down causing you untold heartache. This lie has led many into a life of drug addiction, endless counseling or worst yet suicide. The second lie is likened unto it by telling the population that God does not have the answers to your problems because the Bible is not sufficient for the modern age. They say, “A modern age needs modern solutions, discounting the fact that Jesus Christ is the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end.” As our Creator He knows more about us and our needs than anyone else. Finally, the third big lie of the devil is that humans are weak and sinful, so it would be impossible for them to participate in the divine nature. This idea would be totally foreign to a godless world allowing this lie to take root among the pagans. These three big lies along with many others from the devil has kept the biggest part of humanity in bondage. Furthermore, this bondage is increasing daily. Of course, we should know that Satan’s desire is to enslave the entire human race before Christ returns. Are you a prisoner or have you been set free?

If you want to break free from this bondage, then we need to learn how to walk in God’s great and precious promises. The first is found in the Bible, let’s read it together II Corinthians 5:17, “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.” Of course, this promise is only available to the new creation. The person who has faith believing that God will make him or her into a new creation. Logic dictates that a new creation cannot have any of the old creature still existing in the new. Although God will take the rest of your life here on the planet growing you from one degree of glory to another, it does not negate the fact that the old life, past tense, has passed away. Through faith you have been forgiven and your past sins are never to be remembered again by God. This new creation has the heart of stone replaced with a heart of flesh where everything changes (See Ezekiel 11:19). Your likes and dislikes change. You are changed from the inside out. Quite differently from the world that just wants to change the outside through behavior modification. Your whole attitude about life and others completely change. If it were not for your familiar face even your closest friends would no longer recognize you. Unless you plan on calling God a liar then we must believe this truth and walk in this promise. We must resist the lies of the devil.

Remember, the second lie of the devil is that God does not give us everything we need for life and godliness. So, what is God’s promise? Let’s look in the Bible together, “According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue” (II Peter 2:3). Through the knowledge of Him. The more we learn about Christ through the indwelling Spirit the more we learn how to live a righteous life in an unrighteous world. In fact, it is the indwelling Spirit’s job to lead us into all truth (See John 16:13). To bring to our memories all that Christ taught when He walked upon the earth. Of course, this promise will do you little good if you don’t believe it. On the other hand, if you do believe in this promise then you will spend all the time necessary researching the Bible for the answers that’s applicable for every age, including the modern age. You will spend enough time listening to the Spirit allowing Him to either lead you to the appropriate Scripture or speaking directly to your spirit, keeping in mind that His words will never nullify the Bible. Finally, you will receive counsel from other believers who are walking in this promise. Unless you plan on calling God a liar then we must believe this truth and walk in this promise. We must resist the lies of the devil.

Remember, the third lie of the devil says that as weak sinful human beings we are unable to participate in the divine nature. So, what is God’s promise. Let’s look at the sufficient Word of God, the Bible. “Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust” (II Peter 1:4). By these promises; believing in and walking in them will allow us to actually participate in the divine nature. Praise God. By the time we get to walking in the divine nature our past life is just a distant memory. You have been growing spiritually by putting off the old life and putting on the new life of righteousness becoming every day more like your risen LORD Jesus Christ. You have been walking in the Spirit moving you further away from the world’s counsel and closer to only listening to God’s Holy Counsel. Now you are truly seeing things differently as you begin to enjoy the tremendous blessing of participating in the divine nature. To do so changes your priorities, changes your longings and your desires. You won’t remember the exact time it happened, but you know that your heart is so much more tender than ever before. You feel as though you can reach up and touch the face of God. Unless you plan on calling God a liar then we must believe this truth and walk in this promise. We must resist the lies of the devil.

When we believe and walk in the promises of God then you will no longer suffer as the world suffers. You will no longer be held in bondage to your old sin nature but set free to live a new life in Christ. You will with God’s help and the temporary help of a qualified medical professional be able to stop your addiction. All your emotional and psychological problems of your old life will eventually fade away with the help of the indwelling Spirit and other qualified believers that are walking in the same promises. All your previous thoughts of suicide will also pass away as you walk in the new life learning how to turn everything over to the risen Lord and learning how to listen to His counsel alone. The Church should be the lighthouse to a lost and dying world by giving them hope of a new life free from all the pain and suffering of the past life. Dear friend, it’s not too late to pass this message onto your family and friends. It’s not too late to ask Jesus Christ to come into their lives, forgiving them of their past sins and making them into a new creation where they too can participate in the divine nature. Stop listening to the lies of the devil and start by listening to God’s truth.

The Silent Majority Needs to Stop Being Silent (Video)

For years we have heard about the silent majority and I have wondered as of late why must they remain silent. It’s reported that President Nixon first used the term back in the sixties. Then another popular term arose ten years later called the moral majority, which I might add, has also remained silent. On the other hand, it is the fringe groups of heathenisms that we hear the most about, leading many to think that they are the majority. Well, they are not! So, it’s past time! The silent majority needs to stop being silent. A very wise person once said, “It’s far easier to kill a terrorist than to slay an ideology …”. What we are fighting and need to raise our voice about is education, because an ideology is built and maintained with education. This has been proved time and again …

The Silent Majority Needs to Stop Being Silent

For years we have heard about the silent majority and I have wondered as of late why must they remain silent. It’s reported that President Nixon first used the term back in the sixties. Then another popular term arose ten years later called the moral majority, which I might add, has also remained silent. On the other hand, it is the fringe groups of heathenisms that we hear the most about, leading many to think that they are the majority. Well, they are not! So, it’s past time! The silent majority needs to stop being silent. A very wise person once said, “It’s far easier to kill a terrorist than to slay an ideology …”. What we are fighting and need to raise our voice about is education, because an ideology is built and maintained with education. This has been proved time and again by teaching young children to hate the enemies of the host country, allowing the cycle of hatred to continue for years. What can we do to let our voices be heard above the crowd? More importantly, can our voices bring about change before it’s too late? With God’s guidance we will attempt to answer these two questions.

Liking, commenting, and sharing amongst ourselves simply won’t be enough to change anything. Moreover, if our only influence is on Facebook, we will never change the ideology in this country and the world. We must change public education and the entertainment industry. We must take back our children or all will be lost. God told His people the importance of raising our children correctly. The Bible says, “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it” (Proverbs 22:6). The problem is we no longer raise our children in the way they should go. What we have done is to turn them over to the State allowing the State to raise them. When the State is not raising them then we have allowed them to sit in front of the TV set allowing the entertainment industry to continue raising them. There is no wonder that this country is in such a mess. They have indoctrinated our children from the cradle to adulthood while we sat idly by doing nothing to stop it. What this has created is a whole population of mindless automatons. Let me explain.

I have had face to face conversations with these people raised by the State. On the surface they appear very intelligent. They have memorized most of what they have learned and can quote it verbatim. However, I soon discovered they had no real depth or understanding on what they were quoting. They simply were parroting what their professors had said. In response, we must speak loudly and close our eyes and ears to their canned rhetoric and propaganda. Stop listening. Stop your ears. Why do you post or repeat their nonsense? Why do you read it? Have you tricked your mind into believing that you must understand the secret powers of darkness? Be careful otherwise you will be led astray by assimilating what you think makes sense. No wonder so many so-called Christians have such a mixed bag of theology. Believe me there is enough to keep you busy for two life time’s just understanding the depth of God’s truth with no mixture of error. There is enough to keep you busy applying that truth to your life so that you can be all that God wants you to be. Growing from one degree of glory to another will keep you busy for the rest of your life.

Let me ask you a question. How are your children and grandchildren doing? You noticed I did not ask you how’s their relationship with the church and its activities. I did not ask you how well they are doing with their secular studies. I did not ask you how they are doing with keeping their room clean and their obedience to you. No, what I am asking you is, how is their Spiritual growth coming along? This Spiritual growth MUST start at the earliest age possible. Yes, they too can learn how to speak to God and how to listen to His voice through the Spirit. They can learn early on what pleases God and how not to grieve the Holy Spirit. Their Spiritual upbringing will give them a completely different world view. It will teach them what God expects. It will teach them why obedience to His commands will keep them safe and allow them to live life to its fullest. They will soon discover that God has truly given them EVERYTHING they need for life and godliness.

Believe me they will never learn these things in the world. In fact, the world will teach them if they hear the voice of God they will need psychological counsel and drugs to cure their problem. The world fears what it does not understand. Instead of allowing a person to become a new creature truly transformed by the indwelling Spirit they will do everything in their power to stop the transformation. They will offer your children different alternatives. They will be taught that they can change their sex if they don’t like who they are, thus condoning the transgender lifestyle. They teach them that it is acceptable to have two daddies’ or two mommies’ thus condoning homosexuality. They teach them that their ultimate authority is the State and if they feel uncomfortable they can stop listening to their biological parents. They teach them that it’s ok to choose whatever religion that most interest them. They will even allow them to experiment by learning about the religion of Islam. In fact, they can become whatever they want as long as it conforms to the social norms. Friends, we must redeem our children and grandchildren before it’s too late. Believe me this will only get worse if we remain silent. It is time: the silent majority needs to stop being silent. I will take it a step further it’s time to boycott public education and everything coming out of Hollywood. God give us strength to stand firm.

The Last War to be Waged on Earth

As the battle lines are drawn between North Korea and the United States there is a greater battle to be waged. As the battle lines are drawn between the liberals and conservatives there is a greater battle to be waged. As the battle lines are drawn between those who want to make Jerusalem the capital of Israel and those who don’t there is a greater battle to be waged. A battle of all battles that will end life on earth as we now know it. This last war to be waged on earth is between the children of Light and the sons of darkness. This will not be your typical battle. Nuclear and biological weapons will not suffice. Protests and marches will have no effect. Even putting together a digital army in the millions, will not change the outcome. The last war to be waged on earth will be directed by God, our true Commander in Chief. A war that will truly defeat the enemy and scuttle the sons of darkness. God is doing and will continue to do His part. He is calling His children, the children of Light, to do their part.

We will discuss our part first, then God’s part. Believe me, the saying is true you will either be for us or against us, there will be no sitting on the fence. Fence sitting is reserved for the lukewarm church and believe me you do not want to be a part of that group! The Bible says concerning the lukewarm church, “So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth” (Revelation 3:16). To be cast out as unbelievers into utter darkness. To experience the horrible consequences of pure evil, a filth that cannot be easily washed off. The good news however is that even this last representative church on earth has a chance to repent. The Bible says, “As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent. 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 3:19-20). To do so will allow you to become a true child of Light and join Him in the last battle here on earth.

Yes, we still have a chance to become true children of Light and join Jesus Christ in the battle. Amen. To be a true child of Light there must not be any darkness at all. The Bible says, “For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light” (Ephesians 5:8). So, to walk as children of Light we must get rid of, turn from, all evil. To not look on it or embrace it. Of course, the Bible tells the new believers how to do it. To put off the old sin filled life and in the place of it put on the new life modeled after Christ. Embrace and model the new Christian attributes, the fruit of the Spirit, which is, love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, and temperance (See Galatians 5:22-23). To do so in time will see a full harvest of this Spiritual fruit. It will not be long before you realize all that’s in the world, everything taught and practiced, is opposed to your Christian faith. For now we are children of Light and can no longer walk in darkness.

So, how do we join the battle? The Bible says, “The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light” (Romans 13:12). Putting on the armor of Light clearly indicates that we have cast off the works of darkness, which means we are no longer participating in the works of darkness. We no longer listen to their teachings or entertainment that mock God. No longer do we allow our children or grandchildren to listen to their teachings or entertainment that mock God. To teach evolution in their schools or in their entertainment mocks God. It’s also a mockery to teach and accept their other lifestyles of homosexuality and the transgender, the killing of unborn children, and their other so-called gods. Trust me, the Muslims are not the Klingons and their religion does not deserve our respect. We simply can no longer listen to the lies of this age. To do so is a mockery and clearly dims our Light and puts us on the fence with the lukewarm church. If we are not with Him, then we are truly against Him in the battle being waged against the powers of darkness.

To put on the armor of Light projects the Light of God. The Light of God is His holiness for all to see. To project this Light is to project everything good and decent. Everything that He has done and doing for His beloved children. To just say that God has saved us misses all the beauty of that salvation. He has saved us from the powers of the enemy. We are no longer held captive by his lies. We have been set free to live a brand-new life in Christ. 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). To believe the lies of the enemy, that you still need to grapple with your old life, calls God a liar. God said if you are in Christ (a believer) then you are a new creation; the old has gone. To believe the lies of the enemy, that you need the world’s counsel, is to call God a liar, because He said that He has given us everything we need for life and godliness. To be a child of Light and join Him in the battle we must believe His teachings and not the world’s. Furthermore, we have the Gift of the Holy Spirit who comes bearing Spiritual Gifts to protect, encourage and lead us, His children, to victory over the enemy and his lies. Beyond the physical realm there is the Spiritual where we must also take the battle, which I have written extensively about in my book Stand Firm, but beyond the scope of this article. We soon discover that the enemy is powerless to overcome the Gospel message proclaimed boldly by all His children, children of the Light.

Now for God’s part. We must come out from among them. The Bible says, “And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues” (Revelation 18:4). The good news is, if we heed the angel’s voice and truly come out as stated above, proving ourselves to be children of Light, then we will not receive of her plagues (See also I Thessalonians 5:9). On the other hand, if we don’t heed the angel’s voice and continue living in darkness, we will experience the full measure of God’s wrath along with the rest of fallen humanity. Take a moment and read through the book of Revelation or listen to it on Tribulation Radio every night. Friends, God’s wrath is serious and should give everyone a wake-up call. Let me be clear that God’s wrath is not meant to punish, that will come later, but to open the eyes of the unbelievers. Our job as the children of Light is to let the world know what’s happening, to encourage them to accept the truth claims of the Gospel. We must work hand in hand with God, in this last war to be waged on earth. Amen
