How the Masses of this Nation Have Been Deceived by Mere Vocabulary (and Satan is Behind It)

Mere Vocabulary.png

Jesus said to them, “If God were your Father, you would love Me, for I proceeded forth and came from God; nor have I come of Myself, but He sent Me.
Why do you not understand My speech? Because you are not able to listen to My word.
You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it. But because I tell the truth, you do not believe Me.

JOHN 8:42-45

With the latest unrestricted abortion laws in NY and other wicked leaders trying to pass similar, abominable laws passed, many are shocked, heartbroken, and often in disbelief with the level of wickedness the masses have come to.

How can something so obviously wicked, so purely evil not only pass but be applauded and celebrated?

The words of Jesus above explain it perfectly, “You are of your father the devil.” Those not in Christ have not been translated out of darkness, out of the grips of Satan, and he is their father. What a revelation!

Jesus also says to those still being fathered by Satan that they cannot understand Him and are NOT ABLE to listen to My word.

I see so many people trying to debate with those still bound by Satan about abortion, fruitlessly and often without even using the Word of God which is living and active.

His children wear themselves out trying to convince Satan’s children to change their minds when they haven’t had them renewed by God. We must see these people with spiritual eyes – in chains, blinded and with 24/7 lies being fed to them. Because they are bound, they do not see, cannot hear, will not understand God’s truth.

This is why we must pray and fast for the lost and for principalities and powers of darkness, the spirits behind abortion, murder, idolatry, human sacrifice, death, perversion, human trafficking and many more to be broken over these people, so they can receive and be drawn to the Lord by the Holy Spirit. And for God’s exposure and justice to be done in the natural.

But if we give these bound ones anything, any of our words, they must be Word and love drenched. Not attacks comparable to what they’d give us.

Deceived by Mere Vocabulary

The above explains why the masses can EASILY be deceived by the mere use of replacement vocabulary.

  • Abortion (lie) => Murder, human sacrifice, idolatry of self (Truth)
  • Racist (lie) => Wisdom to secure and protect a country with walls is of God, and He commanded Israel to build one for that very reason. (Truth) Not wanting walls to secure the U.S. is also a cover up for some other agenda (e.g. for continued evil to proceed, human and drug trafficking, for the destruction of America in many way, financial destruction, etc). It makes no sense to not secure a country. Only Satan’s control over people could get them to be so deceived by a mere word ‘racist’. As soon as this word is thrown on top of something, the still bound by Satan accept that lie as truth without researching and seeking truth for themselves.
  • Choice (lie) => Choosing to slaughter one’s own child in the womb is murder and an abomination in the eyes of God. (Truth) The bound, blind, and deceived by Satan have made such idols of self that all they see is choice. Throw choice on murdering one’s own child, and the demonic armies rise up in people and inspire them to march the streets to murder their own.
  • Intolerance (lie) => The vocabulary justification demonic spirits related use to deceive and enrage in order to normalize all sorts of perversion, confusion, and the identities he stole from many. (Truth) Of course real intolerance can exist, but not in the way it is being used widely today.

These are a few on many examples. The point is, as maddening, abominable, and heartbreaking all of this is and has been, it is clear that Satan has these people bound. Because HOW else could the be so easily deceived by mere words?

But they did not receive Him, because His face was set for the journey to Jerusalem. And when His disciples James and John saw this, they said, “Lord, do You want us to command fire to come down from heaven and consume them, just as Elijah did?”

But He turned and rebuked them, and said, “You do not know what manner of spirit you are of. For the Son of Man did not come to destroy men’s lives but to save them.” And they went to another village.

Luke 9:53-56

I had to chuckle when I first read the above verses, Luke 9:53-56.

When I was young in the Lord and ignorant of His Word, I’d had similar thoughts about the wicked, but the more I grew in Christ, by His Word and Holy Spirit teaching me the more I felt the heart of God in me to see the lost as Jesus does.

He didn’t come to destroy people but to save them.

I know the Word refers to the wicked a lot and many will harden their hearts, stay wicked, and send themselves to hell, but only God knows who they are.

As the church, it is our responsibility to pray for the lost, share the gospel with them while SIMULTANEOUSLY obeying God’s Word and doing His Word by doing justice on the earth regarding abortion (pray, elect pro-life public servants to office, fight to get pro-life laws passes, fight against human trafficking, and again I will say, pray as in on the offensive, spiritual warfare.

Prayer

Lord, we break the power of Satan over the lost, over those still owned and bound by him. We speak to their stony hearts and say become hearts of flesh. She speak to the veils and scales over their eyes and say be removed and cast into the dark abyss. We speak to their ears and open them to Your truth. We drown out the lies of the enemy with Your truth. Draw them by Your Holy Spirit, prepare their hearts to receive Your Holy Word from Your harvesters. Give the dreams, signs, and visions of You Lord Jesus Christ with open arms waiting for them to come home. In Jesus name we pray, amen.

Please share so this prayer of agreement stretches everywhere.

God uses us to pray the lost into the kingdom. Thank you.

Pray for the Church

O God, Shake, Break, and Wake the Church

shake break and wake your church Lord

Prayer

O God,

Shake, break, and wake the Church.

It’s been passive and way out of balance for far too long – either hyper-grace without loving correction or painfully and destructively religious.

The enemy is steamrolling over the church (as His Body) and laughing while doing so. Taking a centimeter of land here, a few feet there, over time, until wicked strongholds are formed, until principalities and powers of darkness have erected permanent structures of pure evil. Um, Planned Parenthood. 

Mighty God, shake the church from its slumber. Its passivity is allowing evil to run rampant in this nation and upon the face of the earth. Little by little, the enemy has been taking ground and normalizing all sorts of wickedness and all You’ve heard from our lips is – ‘grace, grace, grace’, ‘that’s not loving’, ‘I don’t want to offend anyone’.

Lord, give us deeply rooted and abiding spiritual revelation that we are vessels that show the way to turn from sin, to bring restoration and healing – this is true love.

Sin brings death. Leaving others in their sin and allowing the enemy to have them for eternity is the most unloving thing imaginable.

Lord God, break our hearts for what breaks Yours. “O Lord, You are our Father;
we are the clay, and You are our Potter; we are all the work of Your hand” (Isaiah 64:8). Mold and shape us into Your image, keep us on the narrow path with You.

Father, wake us. We prophesy in the name of Jesus, “the hour has come for you to wake from sleep” (Romans 13:11), for we “are all children of light, children of the day. We are not of the night or of the darkness. So then let us not sleep, as others do, but let us keep awake and be sober” (1 Thessalonians 5:5-6). Church, “Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you” (Isaiah 60:1). God’s people, “Wake up, and strengthen what remains and is about to die, for I have not found your works complete in the sight of my God. Remember, then, what you received and heard. Keep it, and repent. If you will not wake up, I will come like a thief, and you will not know at what hour I will come against you” (Revelation 3:2-3). “For anything that becomes visible is light. Therefore it says, ‘Awake, O sleeper, and arise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you’” (Ephesians 5:14).

We command scales and veils to fall off the church’s eyes, we command all dry bones to come alive, we loose Your resurrection power to the church.

All in Jesus’ mighty name we pray, amen.

Warriors for God, please share so prayers stretch everywhere.

The Abundant Life

What is the Abundant Life’s Destination? And Why a Life Submitted to the Holy Spirit Shows You the Way

What is the abundant life s destination - blog

The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly. 

John 10:10

As believers, because we have the Holy Spirit in us, we also have the Word in us:

  • The Father, Son (Jesus), and the Holy Spirit are one.
  • Jesus is the WORD made flesh [John 1].
  • So again, to have His Holy Spirit is to have His Word in us.

At the same time, we can’t be passive and must stir up the Word by getting in it and being rooted in it, so it’s on our heart and on our lips as we need it – for powerful prayer, to bless others, to answer the attacks of the enemy.

How is the abundant life connected to a life submitted to the Holy Spirit?

Because we are indwelt by His Spirit thus His Word, our hearts long for His Word to come to pass in our lives, for His kingdom ways, for blessings from Abba Father.

This is not a form of the prosperity gospel. A strong desire for an abundant life comes directly from our loving Father because His desire to bless His children is all throughout His Word.  But tied to that strong desire is a knowing that it’s a submitted, obedient life to the Father which causes His blessings to fall on us.

Now it came to pass, afterward, that He went through every city and village, preaching and bringing the glad tidings of the kingdom of God.

Luke 8:1

Everything to do with the kingdom of God is good.

An obedient life submitted to the Holy Spirit excites and pleases the Father’s heart because He loves and longs to bless us. 

But Samuel replied,“What is more pleasing to the Lord:
your burnt offerings and sacrifices
or your obedience to his voice?
Listen! Obedience is better than sacrifice,
and submission is better than offering the fat of rams.
Rebellion is as sinful as witchcraft,
and stubbornness as bad as worshiping idols.

1 Samuel 15:22-23 NLT

You can read here in Deuteronomy 28 about God’s blessings on obedience. The source of your desire to be blessed and obey Him is His Word. 

It’s not wrong to desire blessings because His Spirit teaches that they fall on us as a consequence of obedience to Him.

Finally, what is the abundant life’s destination?

So the Lord blesses us with natural things, spiritual gifts, abundance on every side and we see that:

  • He brought us there to be a blessing to others.
  • and understand it’s of God to desire His blessings.
  • it’s a lie of the enemy that His children who desire blessings are not in line with God.

Of course the enemy wants us bless-less and in lack because we can’t be a blessing to others the way the Lord desires.

Its destination is:

You should remember the words of the Lord Jesus: ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’

Acts 20:35

The abundant life of God is full of the desire for His kingdom ways and to be used of God as co-laborers of Jesus to bless and to see Isaiah 61:1-3 spread throughout the earth. 

The Good News of Salvation

“The Spirit of the Lord God is upon Me,
Because the Lord has anointed Me
To preach good tidings to the poor;
He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted,
To proclaim liberty to the captives,
And the opening of the prison to those who are bound;
To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord,
And the day of vengeance of our God;
To comfort all who mourn,
To console those who mourn in Zion,
To give them beauty for ashes,
The oil of joy for mourning,
The garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness;
That they may be called trees of righteousness,
The planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified.”

Isaiah 61:1-3

 

Worship Him

Much Forgiven. Much Love. Reading, Worshiping, and Weeping Through Luke 7:36-50

Much Forgiven Much Love

A Sinful Woman Forgiven – Luke 7:36-50 (NKJV)

36 Then one of the Pharisees asked Him to eat with him. And He went to the Pharisee’s house, and sat down to eat. 37 And behold, a woman in the city who was a sinner, when she knew that Jesus sat at the table in the Pharisee’s house, brought an alabaster flask of fragrant oil, 38 and stood at His feet behind Him weeping; and she began to wash His feet with her tears, and wiped them with the hair of her head; and she kissed His feet and anointed them with the fragrant oil. 39 Now when the Pharisee who had invited Him saw this, he spoke to himself, saying, “This Man, if He were a prophet, would know who and what manner of woman this is who is touching Him, for she is a sinner.”

40 And Jesus answered and said to him, “Simon, I have something to say to you.”

So he said, “Teacher, say it.”

41 “There was a certain creditor who had two debtors. One owed five hundred denarii, and the other fifty. 42 And when they had nothing with which to repay, he freely forgave them both. Tell Me, therefore, which of them will love him more?”

43 Simon answered and said, “I suppose the one whom he forgave more.”

And He said to him, “You have rightly judged.” 44 Then He turned to the woman and said to Simon, “Do you see this woman? I entered your house; you gave Me no water for My feet, but she has washed My feet with her tears and wiped them with the hair of her head. 45 You gave Me no kiss, but this woman has not ceased to kiss My feet since the time I came in. 46 You did not anoint My head with oil, but this woman has anointed My feet with fragrant oil.

47 Therefore I say to you, her sins, which are many, are forgiven, for she loved much. But to whom little is forgiven, the same loves little.”

48 Then He said to her, “Your sins are forgiven.”

49 And those who sat at the table with Him began to say to themselves, “Who is this who even forgives sins?”

50 Then He said to the woman, “Your faith has saved you. Go in peace.”

I’m loving worshiping to this song (links to YouTube): We Will Worship // Like Oil

Prayer

O God, that we pour ourselves out for You like oil and hold nothing back because You are worthy. There is no other who can love us as You do. It’s in Jesus’ name I pray, amen.

Spiritual Warfare

It Takes Faith Like a Child to Win Spiritual Battles

2 cor 10 4

 

For the weapons of our warfare are not by human might but Holy Spirit powered for the pulling down of strongholds.

2 CORINTHIANS 10:4

“So they rose early in the morning and went out into the Wilderness of Tekoa; and as they went out, Jehoshaphat stood and said, “Hear me, O Judah and you inhabitants of Jerusalem: Believe in the Lord your God, and you shall be established; believe His prophets, and you shall prosper.” And when he had consulted with the people, he appointed those who should sing to the Lord, and who should praise the beauty of holiness, as they went out before the army and were saying:

“Praise the Lord,
For His mercy endures forever.”

Now when they began to sing and to praise, the Lord set ambushes against the people of Ammon, Moab, and Mount Seir, who had come against Judah; and they were defeated. For the people of Ammon and Moab stood up against the inhabitants of Mount Seir to utterly kill and destroy them. And when they [Ammon and Moab] had made an end of the inhabitants of Seir, they helped to destroy one another.

So when Judah came to a place overlooking the wilderness, they looked toward the multitude; and there were their dead bodies, fallen on the earth. No one had escaped.” [2 Chronicles 20:20-24]

Worship is a powerful weapon against the enemy

When we lift up His Holy name, praising and worshiping Him, it brings confusion upon the enemy. Glory to God! We love to worship You, and we thank You that it also breaks the power of darkness off our lives.

May we humble ourselves as little children and worship You freely and wholeheartedly.
