It’s Not Hate. True Hate is Letting People Perish Without the Truth and Calling it Love.

2 17 2019 COME UP HIGHER

Regarding a Human Rights Campaign meeting in Charlotte, NC in 2007 to get radical bathroom laws passed, “The goal of these bathroom bills is to strip the rights of Americans…the president of the organization stood and he declared, ‘We will take this city. We will take this state. We will take this nation. And all of you right wing bigots that think you can stand against us, we’ve already got you. You’re laughing at our humor on prime time television in your living rooms every night’…Any self-identifying person, you could go into the bathroom, locker room, shower whatever. They never truly defined self-identification…and that’s fluid (according to these self-identifiers)…This opens the doors for sexual predators.” Fast forward to 2015, “From 2007 to 2015, eight years. While many in the Christian community sat silent and sat quietly, we watched the HRC bring this radical bathroom ordinance to Charlotte and all hell has broken loose ever since.” – Benhman Brothers. Remarks begin around the 50:10 mark. My brief emphasis in parentheses.

“We will take this city. We will take this state. We will take this nation. And all of you right wing bigots that think you can stand against us, we’ve already got you you’re laughing at our humor on prime time television in your living rooms every night.” – HRC President, NC. 

The Holy Spirit really convicted me (not condemned), convicted, and brought it all together for me regarding what I am doing as a Christ follower when I watch entertainment that is contributing to the spiritual demise of this nation, the indoctrination all people including the church and millions of our children.

When I heard the above quote by the HRC President, NC, regarding taking away our freedoms and forcing their wicked agendas on us and our children in such a demonic spirit of pride, it really shook me. 

The Lord said to me:

What does my Word say is needed for the devil to flee from you?

And the verse, “Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you,” [James 4:7] immediately rose up into my spirit.

Can you see one big reason the enemy has infiltrated and weakened My church? 

Yes, Lord, I said. We haven’t submitted ourselves to You and forsaken entertainment that promotes the enemy, his agendas, and we’ve been contributing to the indoctrination of the masses by giving it our money, time, ratings, view counts on Netflix, and therefore, the devil HAS NOT fled from us. I see very clearly now that the enemy has been brilliant with making cute and cuddly TV and movie characters who promote his lies, that half-truth thing he always does to deceive to normalize sin and cause even the very elect to call what is good, evil, and what is evil, good.

What else?

I now see very clearly that because the church has not submitted and resisted the devil that we are also contributing to the eternal damnation of many, including potentially our own children. In the name of love, not offending others, and tolerance, we are sending a message that people should continue in their sins without eternal consequences. We are laughing at and enjoying entertainment that is causing them to choose eternal damnation and living a lie, an imitation life here, over Your gift of salvation, over true love, Yours. And we can sit baffled as to why the world is spiraling into derangement and darkness, when we’ve played along with the devil in it all.

I am calling My church higher, for full and true submission, so the devil will flee from it. Will you come up higher with Me? 

“If anyone comes to Me and does not hate his father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters, yes, and his own life also, he cannot be My disciple.” Will you walk away from shows and characters you love and deny yourself and stop contributing the the eternal damnation of others. “Yes, Lord. Good-bye, Jack. Good-bye Rebbecca. Good-bye, Randall. Good-bye, Kate. Good-bye, Kevin.” Saying good-bye to This is Us because it is now being used to indoctrinate our children and normalize homosexuality using a child character on it, thus saying to all children watching, “This is okay. This evil is good. This thing that will keep you from from heaven is normal. This idol and god of making sexual identity your identity instead of Christ is the way.”

This is not religion. This is truth. And the homosexual agenda happens to be the subject of this post because of the video above that I recently viewed and what the Lord put on my heart is not just for me.

But let’s remember Proverbs 6:16-19 with my comments in brackets…

These six things the Lord hates,
Yes, seven are an abomination to Him:
A proud look, [those cliques IN churches that gossip, condemn, and look down on people]
A lying tongue,
Hands that shed innocent blood,
A heart that devises wicked plans, [See the latest news on how mega Pastor James MacDonald was just fired,  fell and fell hard? Part of the reason, he was devising wicked plans. How could a man of God not remember that everything planned in secret would be brought into the light? (Luke 8:17) As if God’s eyes were not on him every moment. We must all be discerning lest the enemy cause any of us to fall.]
Feet that are swift in running to evil,
A false witness who speaks lies,
And one who sows discord among brethren. [Happens in the church ALL the time. Like God’s people are just ready and waiting to pounce on each other to condemn].

“But whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to stumble, it would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were thrown into the sea” (Mark 9:42).
“If your brother, the son of your mother, your son or your daughter, the wife of your bosom, or your friend who is as your own soul, secretly entices you, saying, ‘Let us go and serve other gods,’ which you have not known, neither you nor your fathers” (Deuteronomy 13:6).

Prayer

Father, that Your church come up higher and no longer contribute to the spiritual demise of others and this nation. That we submit ourselves to You fully, resist the devil, so he will flee from us always. Grace us with the strength to say no to the lies of the enemy and to stop contributing financially or in any way to the eternal downfall of others. Remind us continually that we are in a spiritual battle with an enemy that hates us and never plays fair. Help Your church get its act together as we are losing souls every day because of our inability to follow You according to Your Word. And that all those who have been deceived and confused and have had their identities stolen by the enemy come to know the Truth, gain their TRUE identities in Him, and the best love of their lives through Jesus Christ. In Jesus’ name, amen.

Praying for those still in need of Jesus

If your identity has been stolen by the enemy and you are living the homosexual lifestyle, struggle with gender confusion, etc. God loves you, I love you, and Jesus died for You to give you your true identity. I pray you accept His love for you today, that your give it all to Him. He loves you, will teach you, and show you the way. Also know that the church as a whole is not the perfect representation of God because many do not fully submit themselves to God, and that is not on God, it is on them for settling for less and brining damage to His name. Get to know Him for yourself and you will see, feel His love, His presence, and be set free from your pain, anger, and torment. Yes, it is a process, but He will walk you through it all. God is love and mercy and His arms are open to you.

It’s Not Hate. It’s ‘NO’ to Indoctrinate. True Hate is Letting People Perish Without the Truth and calling it Love.

Pray for the Lost Instead – the Holy Spirit Can Reach and Do What We Cannot

pray for them instead

For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

HEBREWS 4:12

God’s people, we can use our social media time-lines and feeds to pray for the lost instead of pouncing on them.

Who better to reach them but the Holy Spirit?

We can share the truth in love. What is the truth? God’s Word.

I see so many Christ followers attacking the lost just as an unbeliever would. That’s repaying evil for evil. And the Lord commands us not to do this. It’s also entirely ineffective.

If we are in a debate with someone, we need to infuse our words with His Word because it is living and active and reaches to the heart and thoughts because it IS God [John 1:1; 14].

Prayer

Father, that Your people (the church) would love their neighbors as they love themselves and remember they too were once lost and then found, once dead and now made alive because of Your Son, Jesus. Thank You for this gift and Your amazing grace. Holy Spirit remind Your people of this truth, so we are used of You to share Your truth the way You did. That Your people would use Your Word, reach out in love and concern for the eternal state of the lost, and pray for them knowing You have the power to reach and draw them. Keep Your church from getting into the flesh and the need to be right which is rooted in pride when what is important to You is that we reach the lost, not drive them further into the kingdom of darkness. O God, help Your people. In Jesus’ name, amen.

The NAME Above Every Name – A Prayer for Healing

The name above every name - a prayer for healing

Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, 11 and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

PHILIPPIANS 2:9-11

Prayer

Lord, we rebuke every affliction attacking, (name), at the root and command them to go and never return in the name of Jesus. Grace us to keep our eyes solely on You, Lord Jesus, and You ARE the Word.

Let the storms around, (name), melt like wax in Your presence. All afflictions have a name and You are the NAME above all names so we squash every bit of sickness, disease, the demonic affecting, (name) in JESUS’ name, amen.

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.

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.
