Connecting the Dots (Reddit Article)

      I haven't posted anything political for quite some time, but after reading this I decided it is time to do so again.  Aren't we so tired of all the Trump attacks?  If the press and the liberals who are so upset with his election would leave him alone for awhile, we could see some real change in America.  Of course, that's why they don't leave him alone.  They were on a fast track to making this a socialist country and got stopped in their tracks.  How wonderful!
      I can't for the life of me see why anyone who is living off the fruit of this land, making millions and billions of dollars, particularly movie stars, athletes, college students, etc. presidents/founders of corporations like Apple,  Facebook, Google, etc. can show their faces proclaiming how terrible America is when it is the capitalist system that has enabled them to be who they are.  They should be embarrassed.  Such hypocrites!!
         I pray this all comes to the forefront and these people are held accountable for the crimes they have committed.

This article was posted on Reddit.com  Here is the link.  

Connecting the Dots
am passing this on from someone who's connecting some dots with input from sources he cannot reveal.
Here's what it looks like when all the pieces are sewn together
It smells like conspiracy and treason. Everyone needs to read this. Slowly, and patiently, because it’s very important......
From 2001 to 2005 there was an ongoing investigation into the Clinton Foundation.
A Grand Jury had been impanelled.
Governments from around the world had donated to the “Charity”.
Yet, from 2001 to 2003 none of those “Donations” to the Clinton Foundation were declared. Now you would think that an honest investigator would be able to figure this out.
Look who took over this investigation in 2005: None other than James Comey; Coincidence? Guess who was transferred into the Internal Revenue Service to run the Tax Exemption Branch of the IRS? None other than, Lois “Be on The Look Out” (BOLO) Lerner. Isn’t that interesting?
But this is all just a series of strange coincidences, right?
Guess who ran the Tax Division inside the Department of Injustice from 2001 to 2005?
No other than the Assistant Attorney General of the United States,
Rod Rosenstein.
Guess who was the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation during this time frame?
Another coincidence (just an anomaly in statistics and chances), but it was Robert Mueller.
What do all four casting characters have in common?
They all were briefed and/or were front-line investigators into the Clinton Foundation Investigation.
Another coincidence, right?
Fast forward to 2009....
James Comey leaves the Justice Department to go and cash-in at Lockheed Martin.
Hillary Clinton is running the State Department, official government business, on her own personal email server.
The Uranium One “issue” comes to the attention of the Hillary.
Like all good public servants do, supposedly looking out for America’s best interest, she decides to support the decision and approve the sale of 20% of US Uranium to no other than, the Russians.
Now you would think that this is a fairly straight up deal, except it wasn’t, America got absolutely nothing out of it.
However, prior to the sales approval, no other than Bill Clinton goes to Moscow, gets paid 500K for a one hour speech; then meets with Vladimir Putin at his home for a few hours.
Ok, no big deal right? Well, not so fast, the FBI had a mole inside the money laundering and bribery scheme.
Robert Mueller was the FBI Director during this time frame? Yep, He even delivered a Uranium Sample to Moscow in 2009.
Who was handling that case within the Justice Department out of the US Attorney’s Office in Maryland?
None other than, Rod Rosenstein. And what happened to the informant?
The Department of Justice placed a GAG order on him and threatened to lock him up if he spoke out about it.
How does 20% of the most strategic asset of the United States of America end up in Russian hands when the FBI has an informant, a mole providing inside information to the FBI on the criminal enterprise?
Very soon after; the sale was approved!~145 million dollars in “donations” made their way into the Clinton Foundation from entities directly connected to the Uranium One deal.
Guess who was still at the Internal Revenue Service working the Charitable Division? None other than, - Lois Lerner.
Ok, that’s all just another series of coincidences, nothing to see here, right?
Let’s fast forward to 2015.
Due to a series of tragic events in Benghazi and after the 9 “investigations” the House, Senate and at State Department, Trey Gowdy who was running the 10th investigation as Chairman of the Select Committee on Benghazi discovers that the Hillary ran the State Department on an unclassified, unauthorized, outlaw personal email server.He also discovered that none of those emails had been turned over when she departed her “Public Service” as Secretary of State which was required by law. He also discovered that there was Top Secret information contained within her personally archived email.
Sparing you the State Departments cover up, the nostrums they floated, the delay tactics that were employed and the outright lies that were spewed forth from the necks of the Kerry State Department, we shall leave it with this…… they did everything humanly possible to cover for Hillary. .
Now this is amazing, guess who became FBI Director in 2013? None other than James Comey; who secured 17 no bid contracts for his employer (Lockheed Martin) with the State Department and was rewarded with a six million dollar thank you present when he departed his employer? Amazing how all those no-bids just went right through at State, huh?
Now he is the FBI Director in charge of the “Clinton Email Investigation” after of course his FBI Investigates the Lois Lerner “Matter” at the Internal Revenue Service and he exonerates her. Nope.... couldn’t find any crimes there.
In April 2016, James Comey drafts an exoneration letter of Hillary Rodham Clinton, meanwhile the DOJ is handing out immunity deals like candy.They didn’t even convene a Grand Jury!
Like a lightning bolt of statistical impossibility, like a miracle from God himself, like the true “Gangsta” Comey is, James steps out into the cameras of an awaiting press conference on July the 8th of 2016, and exonerates the Hillary from any wrongdoing.
Do you see the pattern?
It goes on and on, Rosenstein becomes Asst. Attorney General,Comey gets fired based upon a letter by Rosenstein, Comey leaks government information to the press, Mueller is assigned to the Russian Investigation sham by Rosenstein to provide cover for decades of malfeasance within the FBI and DOJ and the story continues.
FISA Abuse, political espionage..... pick a crime, any crime, chances are...... this group and a few others did it:
All the same players.
All compromised and conflicted.
All working fervently to NOT go to jail themselves
All connected in one way or another to the Clinton's.
They are like battery acid; they corrode and corrupt everything they touch.How many lives have these two destroyed?
As of this writing, the Clinton Foundation, in its 20+ years of operation of being the largest International Charity Fraud in the history of mankind, has never been audited by the Internal Revenue Service.
Let us not forget that Comey's brother works for DLA Piper, the law firm that does the Clinton Foundation's taxes.
The person that is the common denominator to all the crimes above and still doing her evil escape legal maneuvers at the top of the 3 Letter USA Agencies?
Yep, that would be Hillary R. Clinton.
Now who is LISA BARSOOMIAN? Let’s learn a little about Mrs. Lisa H. Barsoomian’s background.
Lisa H. Barsoomian, an Attorney that graduated from Georgetown Law, is a protégé of James Comey and Robert Mueller.
Barsoomian, with her boss R. Craig Lawrence, represented Bill Clinton in 1998.
Lawrence also represented:
Robert Mueller three times;
James Comey five times;
Barack Obama 45 times;
Kathleen Sebelius 56 times;
Bill Clinton 40 times; and
Hillary Clinton 17 times.
Between 1998 and 2017, Barsoomian herself represented the FBI at least five times.
You may be saying to yourself, OK, who cares? Who cares about the work history of this Barsoomian woman?
Apparently, someone does, because someone out there cares so much that they’ve “purged” all Barsoomian court documents for her Clinton representation in Hamburg vs. Clinton in 1998 and its appeal in 1999 from the DC District and Appeals Court dockets (?). Someone out there cares so much that even the internet has been “purged” of all information pertaining to Barsoomian.
Historically, this indicates that the individual is a protected CIA operative. Additionally, Lisa Barsoomian has specialized in opposing Freedom of Information Act requests on behalf of the intelligence community. Although Barsoomian has been involved in hundreds of cases representing the DC Office of the US Attorney, her email address is Lisa Barsoomian at NIH.gov. The NIH stands for National Institutes of Health. This is a tactic routinely used by the CIA to protect an operative by using another government organization to shield their activities.
It’s a cover, so big deal right? What does one more attorney with ties to the US intelligence community really matter?
It deals with Trump and his recent tariffs on Chinese steel and aluminum imports, the border wall, DACA, everything coming out of California, the Uni-party unrelenting opposition to President Trump, the Clapper leaks, the Comey leaks, Attorney General Jeff Sessions recusal and subsequent 14 month nap with occasional forays into the marijuana legalization mix …. and last but not least Mueller’s never-ending investigation into collusion between the Trump team and-the Russians.
Why does Barsoomian, CIA operative, merit any mention?
BECAUSE….
She is Assistant Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s WIFE!

More Peaches

       I picked most of the rest of the peaches--still from the same tree--today!  Fortunately, I have my trusty Mule.  I backed it under the tree and was able to reach most of them by standing in, or on the sides of the bed.
        What a great harvest we have had!   I'm surprised they have been such good peaches both in taste and quality.  There have been hardly any worms in these from this tree.  We had a yellow peach tree ripen earlier and almost every peach had a worm in it!
       As I mentioned before, we have had critters eat them the last few years before I could pick them, so I've picked them in stages just in case they come during the night to gobble up the rest.  This year for some reason, except for the deer that could reach the bottom branches, we haven't had a problem.
        The preserves and those I have put in the freezer are going to be so good this winter!

Peaches


         Our white peach tree has been loaded with peaches this year, so much so that some of the branches have broken.  Here is part of the harvest.  I probably could have waited a couple more days but the last time I decided to wait another day, raccoons or squirrels ate every peach on the tree the night before.  How disappointing!

I have already frozen several 2 cup packages to use in the Fruit Cobbler recipe on this blog.  And then yesterday I tried making peach preserves which I had never made before.  I found the following recipe online.  It was excellent, so I am also adding it to the Miscellaneous section of Recipes #2 page.

One of our grandsons and his girlfriend plan to come over one night this week to help me make more since  I've already given away half of that I made yesterday.

The Best Peach Preserves Recipe

8 cups pitted, peeled* peaches, cut in a 1-inch dice
Zest of half a lemon
4 Tablespoons fresh-squeezed lemon juice
6 Tablespoons classic fruit pectin
7 cups white sugar
1 Tablespoon finely chopped crystallized ginger
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon salt

           (I cut down on the spices significantly because I was afraid they would overpower the peaches.  I used about 1/2 tsp. from a tube of fresh ginger I found in the produce department at the grocery store because they didn't have crystallized ginger, 1/8 t. nutmeg, and a little less than the 1/8 t. ground cloves.  I did not use the lemon zest, but I also I didn't reduce the salt or cinnamon since I love cinnamon.)

Instructions:
Begin boiling water in the canning pot. The water should be two inches over the height of the jars. Heat jars, lids and bands in simmering (not boiling) water until ready to use. Remove with tongs and set on dry paper towels.
*You can use the same pot to peel your peaches. Drop 4 or 5 peaches at a time into the simmering water for 45 seconds. Immediately remove peaches and drop in a large bowl of ice water for 20-30 seconds. You should easily be able to slip the skin right off the peaches. 
In a 6- to 8-quart saucepan, set to medium-high heat, bring the peaches and lemon juice to a boil. Lightly mash the peaches (this will help thicken the jam).
Add the pectin and quickly return the mixture to a boil. Stirring constantly, gradually add the sugar.
All at once, stir in the ginger, nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves, reserved lemon zest and salt, and continue to boil, stirring constantly, for 1 minute.
Remove from heat. Skim any foam off the top.
Ladle hot jam into hot jars, leaving ¼-inch headspace. Wipe rim with wet paper towel. Center lid on jar. Screw on the band until firmly in place.
Process in the boiling water bath 10 minutes. Remove jars and cool. Check lids after 24 hours; they should not flex when center is pressed.
Label and date your jars. Peach jam will keep up to two years.

Makes 6 pints

It is Time to Occupy the Kingdom of God on Earth, by Jo Ellen Stevens

This excellent word was posted on The Elijah List last week:

"It's Time to Occupy the Kingdom of God on Earth!"  Jo Ellen Stevens, Connersville, IN

We are entering into something called "the Kingdom age" but God is trying to change people's mindsets about the way that we do things as His Body, the Church. Our thinking has been that we should sit on a pew and wait for the Lord to come and rescue us before this world gets too dark, when Jesus said it plainly in Luke 19:12-13, "He said therefore, 'A certain nobleman went into a far country to receive for himself a kingdom, and to return. And he called his ten servants, and delivered them ten pounds, and said unto them, "Occupy till I come."'"

Execute the Victory He Has Already Won!
Many of us are storing our ten pounds in fear of what the "gloomers and doomers" are saying instead of occupying. When Jesus saved us and filled us with the Holy Spirit, giving us gifts, talents, houses, churches and lands, it wasn't so He could get us out of here right away. No, He said to OCCUPY! He is looking for an occupying army to raise up since He has ALREADY WON THE WAR!

This is the meaning of an occupying army (or "military occupation") according to Google: "Control and possession of hostile territory that enables an invading nation to establish military government against an enemy or martial law against rebels or insurrectionists in its own territory."

And this is the Greek translation of the word "occupy" in Luke 19: "To be occupied in anything; to carry on a business; specifically, to carry on the business of a banker or trader."

Carry Out His Kingdom Business
See, Jesus died and gave His life and destroyed principalities and powers and rendered them illegal in the earth, and now we have been given the power of the Holy Spirit, the name of Jesus, the gifts, talents, and all that pertains to life and godliness to OCCUPY THESE PLACES ON EARTH THAT HE BOUGHT AND PAID FOR! Jesus said that we are to pray, "Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done, on Earth as it is in Heaven." Hmm, to me this is saying that He wants us to bring Heaven to Earth at least while we still have life and breath!
God wants us to carry on HIS KINGDOM BUSINESS and, according to the Greek translation for the word "occupy" we are "specifically to carry on the business of a BANKER OR TRADER." We need to be doing His banking business. Whatever He has given us right now, He is expecting us to do His business with it! He is wanting us to take control and possession of the hostile territory that the insurrectionist (the devil and his cohorts) are still trying to occupy!

God is calling many right now to "CHANGE THEIR MINDSET ABOUT HEAVEN AND EARTH!" Yes, He is coming, but He is coming for a glorious Church occupying and taking care of the business that He has given us here in the earth!

How will You Bring the Kingdom to Earth?
Jesus has placed the Kingdom within us! He said in Luke 17:20-21, "And when He was demanded of the Pharisees, when the Kingdom of God should come, He answered them and said, 'The Kingdom of God cometh not with observation: Neither shall they say, "Lo here! or, lo there!for, behold, the Kingdom of God is within you.'" He also told His disciples in Matthew 10:7-8, "And as ye go, preach, saying, 'The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand. Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.'" So truly, to bring the Kingdom to Earth we must go with what we have and release the Kingdom by giving these gifts that He has given us to those who are bound by the darkness!

The Lord is saying:
"I am calling those out of the earth to arise as an occupying force in the earth and execute the victory that I have already won! I am calling them to occupy the places in the earth that in years past the enemy thought he had in the bag! These are the dark places of the earth! I did not call you to curse those in darkness, but to BRING LIGHT TO THOSE IN THE DARKNESS.

"I have given you all things and equipped you with talents and gifts and in this season, I am going to give those who have been faithful and trustworthy the money to finance their expanded vision that I have given them. There is nothing that can stop this occupying force in these days, but you must change your mindset from chaos to Kingdom and from wanting Me to slay all of the evil ones to bringing My salvation to them. I am in the process of renewing minds about this. I am doing this in answer to the prayers of the righteous as I did for Abraham's family as he prayed! I am long suffering and a merciful God and My mercy triumphs over judgment. The harvest is white. As you see the darkness, arise and intercede for Me to open their eyes during these times of deep darkness and tragedy."

Speak to the Darkness! Call Heaven to Earth!
"Begin to speak to the darkness. Begin to call Heaven to Earth. You are the occupying force, My people! You have been given the authority. You have the Word in your mouth and My name as your power of attorney. You have been given both power and authority. Go and shine in the darkness. Shine on these places that the enemy thinks he owns. Use your Kingdom knowledge to do My business on Earth. You have My wisdom, My weapons and My angel army at your bidding. You have everything that Heaven has inside of you, and in your mouth is the power of My name and Word. Call those things that be not as though they already are. Decree a thing and it will be established. It is time to arise and OCCUPY TILL I COME!"

"And so it was that when he returned, having received the kingdom, he then commanded these servants, to whom he had given the money, to be called to him, that he might know how much every man had gained by trading." (Luke 19:15 NKJV) 
Arise Shine!

Mark Virkler's "Counseled by God"

Below is a link to another great opportunity and resource from Mark Virkler's ministry.  I have cut & pasted the email I received this morning so you won't miss these videos if you are at all interested.

His name shall be called Wonderful Counselor. (Isa. 9:6)
Have you ever been defeated by negative thoughts and feelings such as anger, fear, guilt, inferiority, condemnation or depression? Have you tried to fight them off unsuccessfully? Is there an answer that is deeper than simply trying to mentally reason yourself out of these emotions? Is there a way that Jesus can speak a word of life into the depths of your emotional despair and bring healing on a deep level? Is there a form of Christian counseling that begins and ends with the movement of Christ within your heart, rather than simply with the words of man?
Yes, there is! It is built on your ability to commune with God and to receive a freshly spoken word from the Holy Spirit within your heart. This teaching series will show you the way to emotional wholeness through personal interaction with Almighty God within your spirit, as it is recorded in your journal.
A genuine word from the Lord heals the broken-hearted. All the “how to” books can never do what a rhema word from God can do for the inner man. You will learn to let God speak to your heart and counsel you about the pressures of life such as anger, doubt, depression, condemnation and inferiority. You will learn to let God replace these with His opposites, as His voice releases His grace within your heart. Those whom the Son sets free are free indeed!


Would you like to discover...

  • How can I tell if a thought is coming from self, satan, or God?
  • What's the difference between condemnation and Holy Spirit conviction?
  • How do I create an impure heart, and how can it be restored?
  • How did Abraham use the 5 senses of his spirit to birth something great?
  • Are all of my painful memories actually lies?
  • How did Elijah move from faith to fear?
  • How do I quit being motivated by guilt once and for all?
  • What's wrong with loving justice?
  • What is the quickest way to change my perspective from anger to love?
  • What are the main doorways through which depression enters my life?
  • How can I possibly see God in every situation?

From August 15-20, I am posting this full set of training videos which demonstrate how to be Counseled by God (2 videos per day).
This is one of the foundational messages that the Lord has had me sharing over the last three decades, and the testimonies we get from it are so powerful!
“The Counseled by God course is worth a million dollars to me. It moved the issues of life from the theoretical and theological right down into the heart. In the second chapter Mark made this outrageous statement that every accusative thought is of the Accuser, and every positive, life-giving, up-building thought is from the Holy Spirit, the giver of life. I realized that 80 percent of my own thinking was negative. It so smote me in my heart. I prayed, 'God, this is completely unacceptable - completely! I cannot go through my life with 80 percent of my mind yielded to the enemy, to the Accuser!'”

Blessings,
Dr. Mark VirklerPresident of Christian Leadership University and founder of CWG Ministries

P.S.

Are you ready to stop trying to “counsel” yourself, to talk yourself out of whatever painful emotion is eating away at your heart? Are you ready to admit that logic and reasoning are never going to take away this depression? Are you ready to give the Wonderful Counselor a chance to finally replace the negativity and darkness in your spirit with joy and light?

Square One. Chris Beat Cancer Free Screening August 14-24 - Link

I watched this last year and was very impressed!  Therefore, I am posting the link here in hopes that more of you will share it with those you know who have cancer, or who fear having cancer.  It is so encouraging and helps to take much fear from the diagnosis, I think.  If you haven't already done so, I also highly recommend reading the free online book, Victory Over Cancer, by Dr. Rath, which I linked to in a post a few days ago.

This is the email I received promoting the free screening of Square One so I have cut & pasted it.

Hey Gang!

If you haven't heard, I'm putting SQUARE ONE online for free again this year August 14-24th. 
Many of you found out about SQUARE ONE through last year's free screening and a number of you have reached out asking how to help share it with people you care about! Thank you!!!
Here's the link to share the trailer page on social media: 
If you don't know the way the free screening works, one module airs each day for 10 days. And each module is only available to watch for 24 hours. 
A lot of cancer patients are skeptical about nutrition and natural non-toxic therapies, and many feel hopeless and powerless... They don't understand that their choices matter and that they have the power to change their life and restore their health.
The 10-day free screening gives them the opportunity to tune in and be enlightened, inspired, and encouraged, and hopefully will prompt them to join our community and take massive action to change their life.
Here's the share link again. Thanks!
To your life and health!

Galatians 5:1

      I was reading Galatians in the Passion Translation yesterday.  I love the way 5:1 is translated!  "Let me be clear, the Anointed One has set us free--not partially, but completely and wonderfully free!  We must always cherish this truth and stubbornly refuse to go back into bondage of our past."       
       Don't you feel like shouting "Hallelujah!" when you read that?  Whom the Son sets free is free, indeed!  We must continually remind ourselves of this.  Don't let the devil send thoughts of the past to pull you down.  The old man is dead!  We are a new creation is Christ.  Old things have passed away. All things have become new!  That is the gospel--the good news!!

Victory Over Cancer, part 2

I was distracted for a few days but this evening I read more from Victory Over Cancer, the book I linked in the last post.  

Here is a quote from page 106, "Currently, we have information about several thousands of cancer patients, many of whom shared their records with us. Many of them are still alive after 10 years and longer of continuous micronutrients supplementation. Throughout this book we will share some of these reports with you."

If you know anyone who has cancer please send them this link and also encourage them to supplement with micronutrients.  What can it hurt?

A Very Interesting Book!

I have been reading the book, Victory Over Cancer, online which was suggested by Mark Virkler in one of his posts. It is very short but contains some information I had never heard before.  I thought you might be interested, too.  Some amazing connections between the pharmaceutical companies and Germany!

Here is the link:  http://www.victory-over-cancer.org/2016/02/about-the-book/#1454076041917-8e05594a-6801   Click on each photo to read that section of the book.

"We Are in 80 Days of Preparation! Making Sense of the Chaos in the World" Doug Addison


This is a call and a strategy to pray and break the spirit of violence.
80 Days of Preparation
God spoke to me that we've just entered a very important time—July 1, 2018, through September 19, 2018. September 19 is Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement on the Jewish calendar, which is when God seals the verdicts He has spoken over you for the coming year.
"It is important to remove fear from our lives and instead be filled with the Holy Spirit and faith, hope and love
(1 Corinthians 13:13).
"
The Lord is calling us, over the next 80 days, to complete anything He has asked us to do. We can also do anything that might prepare us for what God is calling us to. There is going to be a major shift starting in October 2018. There is no need to be legalistic, but it would be good to ask God to show you more about this.
New Strategy for Attacks of Violence
In Isaiah 59:19, God promises that, "...When the enemy comes in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord will lift up a standard against him" (NKJV).
With all that is happening in the world right now, many people are wondering, "Where do bad things come from?" and "Is God responsible for the bad in the world?" It is the enemy who has come in like a flood, but God is now releasing a new standard against him.
Jesus told them another parable: "The Kingdom of Heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field. But while everyone was sleeping, his enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat, and went away. When the wheat sprouted and formed heads, then the weeds also appeared.
"The owner's servants came to him and said, 'Sir, didn't you sow good seed in your field? Where then did the weeds come from?'
"'An enemy did this,' he replied." (Mathew 13:24-28 NIV).
The attacks we are seeing right now in the world are definitely not from God. This is the enemy and God is getting the blame.
Three Attacks of the Enemy
"And everything I've taught you is so that the peace which is in Me will be in you and will give you great confidence as you rest in Me. For in this unbelieving world you will experience trouble and sorrows, but you must be courageous, for I have conquered the world!" (John 16:33 TPT) (Photo via Unsplash)
What I am about to share is not meant to bring fear or judgment in any way. God revealed three major attacks of the enemy that could explain why we are seeing people going crazy, killing other people, and even why sicknesses are afflicting many. God also gave the solution on how we can overcome these attacks and shift the spiritual atmosphere.
The three-strand attack from satan is: fear, lack of love (hatred) and judgments. The attacks are global and have been unfolding slowly over the past few years but are now increasing in intensity.
Attack of Fear
Jesus prophesied in Luke 21:26"Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of Heaven shall be shaken" (KJV).
According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States and, as Jesus said, it is the result of partnering with fear instead of faith. This is what is happening right now! It is important to remove fear from our lives and instead be filled with the Holy Spirit and faith, hope and love
(1 Corinthians 13:13).
"There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love." (1 John 4:18NKJV)
"The Lord is calling us, over the next 80 days, to complete anything He has asked us to do."
Chronic levels of fear can allow satan to assign people tormentors. This is why we are seeing so many people going crazy and an increase of killings and outbreaks of violence.
Attack Against Love
Jesus told us in Matthew 22:37-39 that the greatest commandment is to "'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind' ... (and to) 'Love your neighbor as yourself'" (NIV).
Sometimes we can get angry with God and blame Him for bad things. We can also have emotional wounds in our soul that cause us to experience self-hatred, low self-esteem or anger towards others. But when we get out of God's perfect love, we open ourselves up to darkness, sickness and demonic attacks on our finances and faith.
Attack of Judging Others
"Do not judge, or you too will be judged. For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you."(Matthew 7:1-2 NIV)
After teaching the Lord's Prayer, Jesus talks about the need to not judge others. When we judge others, we will fall under judgment ourselves. It is possible that judging others can cause us to lose our authority in prayer for changing the world. God is calling us to be careful not to speak against what we do not agree with.
The Solution to Changing the World
"I appeal to you, brothers and sisters, in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree with one another in what you say and that there will be no divisions among you, but that you will be perfectly united in mind and thought." (1 Corinthians 1:10 NIV) (Photo via Unsplash)
To prepare ourselves for reaching the world with God's love, it will be necessary to rid ourselves of things we might have in common with the spirits of fear, lack of love and judging others. As we do this, we will gain greater authority to minister to others and receive a clearer vision of what God is doing.
