The Lord Will Protect Your Seed

Have you ever felt like, you are spiraling down hill when it comes to your finances? Do you feel like no matter what you do, your money just keeps getting eaten up by different things like, tires, higher than normal electric bills, grocery prices rising, gasoline prices rising, unexpected doctor bills, or vet bills?

Here is the deal. We are children of God. We should not worry about such things, as He has already provided for us all that we need according to His riches. When we worry over such things we are giving the devourer energy to eat up our seed. We are giving the enemy free reign over our seed.

God tells us in Malachi, that He will not let the devourer take our seed, that He will protect our seed and see that the windows of heaven are opened and blessings poured out on us. When we start worrying over the economy we are given in to the enemy and no longer trusting in God's word. We are walking by sight and not by faith. AMEN!

Mal 3 v 10-12..."Bring all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be food in My house, and try Me now in this", says the Lord of Hosts," If I will not open for you the windows of heaven and pour out for you such blessing that there will not be room enough to receive it. And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, so that he will not destroy the fruit of your ground. Nor shall the vine fail to bear fruit for you in the field," says the Lord of Hosts; "And all nations will call you blessed, for you will be a delightful land," says the Lord of Hosts.......

When we trust Him and not ourselves or the economy, our seed will not dry up. If we would spend as much time praying over our tithes and seeking the Lord as to what to give in our offerings instead of just throwing a tip in the basket when it comes by us, we would not be worried over such matters, for we would know that the windows of heaven are opened to us, and blessings are ours, and that we will always have more than enough. AMEN!

The word tells us He gives us all things to enjoy, not just our needs being met, but all things to enjoy. We will have no lack. How can you enjoy all things if you are constantly concerned over your bills? I am not telling you to go out and be a spend thrift and frivolous. I am saying do not be concerned where your needs are, know that they are being met and enjoy what you have and give Him the praise and thanks for it. Quit patting yourself so hard on the back because you earned what you have, and start thanking Him by giving back into His kingdom what He has blessed you with. Then let the windows of heaven open for you and enjoy what He has given you.

1 Tim 6 v 17-19....Command those who are rich in this present age not to be haughty, nor to trust in uncertain riches but in the living God, who gives us richly all things to enjoy. Let them do good, that they be rich in good works, ready to give, willing to share, storing up for themselves a good foundation for the time to come, that they may lay hold on eternal life.....

The Lord tells us to do good with our riches. He is not giving us all riches to hoard up for ourselves or to make sure our children have a good life when we are gone. No He is telling us to be willing to give, to share so that others may know the goodness of the Lord. So that His word can be brought to the ends of the earth. So others will know the love of Jesus and hear of the eternal life He has for them.

The word tells us not to grow weary in doing good. So when you are feeling like your seed is drying up, get back in His word and see what He says, He will rebuke the devourer, He will cause your vine to produce fruit, in your season you shall reap all that He has to give you. Stand on your faith, make a demand on your faith, and He will meet your needs and give you the desires of your heart.

Gal. 6 v 9-10.....And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap, if we do not lose heart. Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all, especially to those who are of the household of faith....

Don't give in to the devil and the economy of this world. Don't put your trust there. Don't stop tithing because you think you can't afford to give. That is a lie of the devil to keep you in bondage to him. YOU CAN"T AFFORD NOT TO GIVE! Trust in His word, and keep your heart right before the Lord and keep those windows of heaven opened unto you. AMEN!

How To Walk Like Jesus part 1 part 4

First we need to activate our inner man. The first thing we need to do each day would you agree is seek Him and His righteousness. But to go a step further, we need to activate the Holy Spirit within us, we need to get our inner man awakened and on the job, then as we seek Him, His word will become more clear, more discernable. (is that a word) easier to discern what He is saying to us.

We must be DETERMINED to seek Him first each day so that we may walk out His will for us that day.

We must be DETERMINED not to be disturbed while we are seeking Him and listening to what He has to say to us.

We must be DETERMINED to hear His voice first each day.

We must be DETERMINED in His purpose for our life to see it through.

Matt 6 v 33...but seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you....

All what things? All the things He has for you, but most importantly His wisdom to carry His will through.

Romans 8 v 28....and we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose....

Once I asked my son when he was doing some traveling during times that were kind of dangerous. I said, are you not concerned about your safety when you go to these places? He said No, God gave me a purpose to fulfill, and I have not completed that purpose, and until I do, I have nothing to fear. God will make sure His will is done.

It reminded me of the story of the disciples in the boat, when Jesus had told them to get in the boat and go to the other side, and then the storm came and they were all afraid, and they woke Jesus and said are you not concerned that we are going to die in this storm (my words), but Jesus just spoke to the storm and said be still, and it quit. You see the point is, Jesus said go to the other side, and if they could only have faith that if Jesus tells you to do it and you do it, He is not going to let anyone or anything stop what He said to do. AMEN!

We must seek Him first each day and see Him not with our natural eyes, but with our spiritual eyes. We must see Him for who He is. And then and only then can we receive from Him our blessings, our healing, our protection. AMEN!

Romans 8 v 34-35....Who is he who condemns? It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril or sword?

In other words, tell the enemy who do you think you are that you can take what belongs to Christ Jesus? You did not die on that cross for all, but He did, and now has power over you, He has the victory.

Romans 8 v 37-39.....Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our LORD.....

That scripture kind of says it all. Nothing can separate those who abide in Him. Those who seek Him and His will. Those who have set their face like flint to stay in His truth and His will for their lives. Those who are walking like Jesus with a DETERMINED PURPOSE. AMEN!

How To Walk Like Jesus part 1 part 3

Walking with a determined purpose.

Proverbs 4 v 20-27....My son, give attention to my words; Incline your ear to my sayings. Do not let them depart from your eyes; Keep them in the midst of your heart; For they are life to those who find them, and health to all their flesh. Keep your heart with all diligence, for out of it spring the issues of life. Put away from you a deceitful mouth, and put perverse lips far from you. Let your eyes look straight ahead, and your eyelids look right before you. Ponder the path of your feet, and let all your ways be established. Do not turn to the right or the left; Remove your foot from evil.....

Set your face like flint as Jesus did. Set your feet on the right path. Do not be wavered, do not turn one way or the other away from His word and His truth. Be determined on your course.

Seek Him with all your heart and all your mind, and He will lead you down the right path. Be determined to follow Him and not the ways of the world.

Ephes 6 v 6-7...not with eyeservice, as men-pleasers, but as bondservants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart, with good will doing service as to the LORD, and not to men.....

1 Thes 4 v 7-8....For God did not call us to uncleanness, but in holiness. Therefore he who rejects this does not reject man, but God, who has also given us His Holy Spirit....

Why did He give us His Holy Spirit? So that we can know when we are venturing off His path.

1 John 2 v 17....And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever.....

Remember stay determined. Keep your determined purpose in front of you at all times. Do not waver.

Faith Works By Love Then Comes Your Healing

There are several people who need these healing scriptures, and have asked me to send. I am asking all tid-bit readers to pray for each other, as the enemy is running rampant through the minds and bodies of some. We as Christians must take our stand against the enemy and rebuke him away from our brothers and sisters. We need to put him on the run once and for all. AMEN!

Let us all be in agreement with these scriptures and what the LORD is telling us. Let us all lift each other up in prayer for healing for anyone who might be in need. Don't back down tid-bit readers. Take a firm stand, set your faces like flint, just as Jesus did. Do not waver, do not be moved. STAND FAST and resist the devil and he has to flee.

James 4 v 7....Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.....

Romans 5 v 1....Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our LORD JESUS CHRIST.....

Romans 5 v 9...Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him....

We have been justified by His blood. His blood was spilled to cover all sin, all diseases, all sickness. We are healed by our faith in His blood. But here is the key. Faith works by love. If you do not have love, if you harbor any hatred, bitterness, prejudice toward any man then you are hindering your healing. If these things exist in you, then love is not present, and if love is not present then faith is not present. These things will fester and consume your health. It takes more than just believing there is a God, and even more than just loving GOD. He says you must love your neighbor as yourself as well.

1 John 4 v 20-21....If someone says, "I love God", and hates his brother,(meaning anyone) he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen, how can he love God whom he has not seen? And this commandment we have from Him; that he who loves God must love his brother also.....

In other words, you can not walk in the fullness of God's love when you have bitterness, hatred, prejudice in your heart. God can not exist where these things are, so if these things are in you, then God is not present. If God is not present, how can He heal you?

Here are some healing scriptures to meditate on. Also get you some crackers
and grape juice to take communion everyday until your healing manifests itself.
We are healed by His blood. And He says as often as you do this, do in remembrance of Me. He doesn't say you can only take once a month, He doesn't put any limits on His blood, so why should we?

IS 53 v 5....But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed.....

1 Pet 2 v 24....Who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness, by whose stripes you were healed....

Bitterness, wrath, hatred, prejudice, and any other forms of sin. These are things that we need to cleanse our hearts of, so that we may receive our healing. We can not just stick our heads in the sand, and think that these things will go away on their own. We have to have a change of heart. We have to renew our minds with the things of Christ. We as Christians are to be like minded with Christ. When we hold on to these things, and try to solve our problem on our own, we are walking in pride and not with Christ.

James 4 v 6...But He gives more grace. Therefore He says, "God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble"....

Ephes. 1 v 7....In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace....

1 Cor 10 v 16....The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not the communion of the blood of Christ? The bread which we break, is it not the communion of the body of Christ?....

Scriptures for communion
1 Cor 11 v 23-26....For I received from the LORD that which I also delivered to you; that the Lord Jesus on the same night in which He was betrayed took bread; and when He had given thanks, He broke it and said, "take, eat; this is My body which is broken for you; do this in remembrance of Me." In the same manner He also took the cup after supper, saying "this cup is the new covenant in My blood. This do, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me." For as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the LORD's death till He comes....

each day, search your heart, and make sure you have no unforgiveness
there for anyone, no prejudice towards any man, no hatred for anyone. These
things can stop your healing.

Second if there are any, repent and ask for forgiveness, renew your heart
with the love of Christ, Jesus only had love in His heart for every man, this is
why it was so easy for Him to heal the sick, cause the blind to see, and the
lame to walk, this is why miracles happened every where He went. Faith works by love. There is no other way. You have to walk in love for everyone and
forgiveness for all so that your faith can make you whole.

To be whole is to be like the Lord Jesus. To be whole you have to love like
God loves.You have to love God first and others as you love yourself. That
means everyone, no one is exempt becase of what they may have done to you, or because they are different than you, you have to love your enemies and pray for them.

Third, take communion and then begin thanking Him and giving Him praise for your good report, for your healing. Worship Him with praise and thanksgiving. Then know without a doubt that you are healed. You were made whole through the body and the blood of Jesus. AMEN!

Then get into His word and meditate on His healing scriptures. Meditate on these things and not the reports from others. Keep His word before you always, in your hearts and in your minds, so that the enemy has no place to rest. AMEN!

1 Cor 13 v 2-3 ,9a..........And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, but have not love, it profits me nothing...Love never fails......


Walk in love, let your faith work, receive your healing.

How To Walk Like Jesus Part 1 cont.

Being Determined

We must be determined to find the Lord's will for our lives. We must seek Him daily in His word to know what His will is.

Exodus 33 v 13a.....Now therefore, I pray, if I have found grace in Your sight, show me now Your way, that I may know You and that I may find grace in Your sight........

Acts 22 v 14-15.....Then he said, "The God of our fathers has chosen you that you should know His will, and see the Just One, and hear the voice of His mouth. For you will be His witness to all men of what you have seen and heard....

1 Thes 5 v 16-17...."Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you....

1 Cor 2 v 9-12....But as it is written; "eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man, the things which God has prepared for those who love Him." But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God. For what man knows the things of a man except the spirit of the man which is in him? Even so no one knows the things of God except the Spirit of God. Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God.........

Our Spirit we received from the Lord when we became Christians, helps us to discern what the will of God is in our lives. God gave us His Spirit so that we can know His will. We are able to discern what is right from wrong. We can feel in our Spirit man when we are making right choices or when we are making wrong choices. AMEN!

John 18 v 13-15.....However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears he will speak; and He will tell you things to come. He will glorify Me, for He will take of what is Mine and declare it to you. All things that the Father has are Mine. Therefore I said that He will take of Mine and declare it to you.....

Jesus told His disciples not to fret, because when He leaves to go be with the Father, He will send a helper, the Holy Spirit who will come and dwell within you. This is how we discern the Father's will for us is by listening to the Holy Spirit who lives within us.

Ephe 5 v 13-14....For everyone who partakes only of milk is unskilled in the word of righteousness, for he is a babe. But solid food belongs to those who are of full age, that is, those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.....

God wants us to be of full age, He wants us to be able to discern what is right from wrong, He wants us to know His will, He is not trying to keep it a secret. He has it spelled out in His word, and if we get into His word on a daily basis, then we are growing in our faith and we are becoming adults in His kingdom and no longer babes. We have to exercise our spiritual senses daily. We have to be intuned to what the Holy Spirit is saying to us when we read and hear God's word. Once again, I encourage you to read the word out loud, so that it gets into your hearing. Read it with authority. Read it with faith belieivng every word is TRUTH. Jesus is the WORD, the WORD is TRUTH, therefore JESUS is the TRUTH.

Start each day determined to know the TRUTH, and determined to know the Father's will for you. Start out each day with the WORD.

How To Walk Like Jesus Part 1

Our Pastor is doing a series right now entitled Jesus in 3 D. Or how to walk like Jesus did when He was on the earth. There are three points to this series:

1. Determined Purpose
2. Divine Compassion
3. Delegated Authority

I want to share with the tid-bit readers what I receive from this teaching each week. This was so awesome to me, that we can walk just as Jesus did while He was on this earth. I hope you too will receive a revelation of how He walked and how you can do the same. AMEN!

First point, Jesus walked with determined purpose. How many of us just go through out our lives with no determination of seeing our purpose fulfilled, or worse yet with no purpose at all? Our purpose should be determined just like Jesus. Why? Because Jesus's determined purpose was knowing the will of GOD for His life. It should be the same with us. We should be determined everyday to get into the word of God and find out what is His will for us is that day? How does His will for that day fit into our purpose He has for our life? Our determined purpose should be to know God's will for our lives without a doubt. We should be like Jesus. Unmovable, unshakable, unwavering, firm in purpose and belief, concentrated attention on something, determined to take action to see it fulfilled. Those are some of the definitions of determination. That is where we need to be when it comes to knowing what God's will for us is.

IS 50 v 7....For the Lord God will help Me; therefore I will not be disgraced, therefore I have set My face like a flint, and I know that I will not be ashamed.....

This is Jesus talking through the prophet. He says He will set His face like a flint. In other words He will not be moved from what He believes to be the true will of God in His life. That is the place we need to be. We need to be firm in our stand against the enemy, we need to be unshakable when the enemy tries to throw something at us. We need to know that God's will is certainly not for us to perish in any way, whether in our health, our finances, or in any situation. How do we know this? We study His word, so that we can know without a doubt what His word says about every situation. How did Jesus defeat His enemy, Satan? With the word of God.

Luke 9 v 51....Now it came to pass, when the time had come for Him to be received up, that He steadfastly set His face to go to Jerusalem....

He knew the Father had a course for Him, and He knew when it was time for Him to go to finish the will of the Father. How did He know? Because He studied the word of God daily. He rose up early and went off by Himself to be undisturbed while He fellowshiped with the Father and studied His word out so that He would know what the will of the Father was at that day and time.

Mark 1 v 35......Now in the morning, having risen a long while before daylight, he went out and departed to a solitary place and there He prayed.....

How do we know what the will of God is in our life? By having a determined purpose like Jesus, by getting off to ourselves and seeking the Father, and studying His word so that we know what His will is in each season of our lives. Jesus being the Word Himself, studied the word of God daily, how much more so then do we need to study?

2 Tim 2 v 15....Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth....

In other words, studying His word to know what the truth is for yourself and not just what someone may have told you. Knowing how to be doers of His word and walk it out in your life with determination and not just be hearers only. This is what builds your faith to the point of believing just as Jesus did, so that your determination, (your faith) will not be shakened. AMEN!

Frame Of Mind

What is your frame of mind when you go to worship the LORD. When you go to church, are you thinking about all the troubles you have had this week, or what is in store for you next week. Did you fight traffic to get there and are you feeling anxious because you were running late trying to get the kids ready, the spouse ready and out the door? We have all experienced these emotions at some time or other when we were headed for church. But the question is, what do you do with that frame of mind before you start your worhsip to Him?

Music influences our frame of mind. When you go to the spa, you listen to nice peaceful flowing music, not hard rock, head banging music. Why? Because they want your body to relax and get in line with your treatments. They do not want you all tensed up. The same is true with the LORD.

He wants you to get in line with His mood. His mood is always peace and love. There is no tension in Him. He wants you to have the same. In fact your body is made to endure longer when you have peace and love. When there is tension in your body, everything starts falling apart. Why? Because the LORD did not make you to be tense. He made you in His image. AMEN!

That is why it is so important to get to church in time for praise and worship, because you will go from peace, to excitement (in a good way), to a frame of WORSHIP. Joyce Meyer said something, this morning that got me thinking. She said, we get to choose what we want to think. No one chooses for us. We choose. We can choose to have stinking thinking, or we can choose to have peaceful, loving thoughts. We get to choose what frame of mind we are going to set our mind to. It is that simple. We get to choose! AMEN!

One of the ways we choose is by what we surround ourselves with. What we feed our minds, comes out through our thinking. We have to be careful what we put into our thinking because it will show up in our spirit sooner or later. AMEN!

IS 26 v 3....You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You...

Romans 12 v 2....And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.....

2 Tim 1 v 7....For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind...

God gave us power over our minds, so that we may always keep a sound mind. We just have to exercise that power when stinking thinking tries to creep in. AMEN!

Prov 23 v 7a.....For as he thinks in his heart so is he....

To think something in our heart it had to first come from our mind. To guard our hearts from evil, we first have to guard our minds from it. The enemy attacks us first in our minds, and then like a cancer it spreads through our bodies and tears us down. We have to stop him before he takes root in our minds to protect the rest of our bodies. Stinking thinking causes stress, stress is related to every disease known to man. You see how the enemy works? He is no fool, he knows where to attack you first, so that he can have a chance of winning.

But the good news is this. Jesus has already died for anything the enemy tries to put on you. He has already won the victory for you. You just have to accept this victory in your mind, and get it into your heart that you can not be defeated because of the One who lives within you. AMEN!

To get right thinking, to stay in a well nourished frame of mind, you must....

Whose Words Are You Living By

Someone out there needs this today. Someone needed yesterday's word.

Whose words are you letting determine your future? Are they the words from the world about the economy, about how poor everything is? Or are they words from a physician who has given you a bad diagnosis? Or are they words from well doers who are agreeing with you and jumping in on your pity party about your situation. Whatever it might be, your health, your finances, your relationships, your children's behavior? WHATEVER, it is, if it is tearing you down, it is not from GOD. AMEN!

Yesterday I gave you so many scriptures to help defeat the enemy. But someone is giving up with a diagnosis. Someone is giving in to financial situations, just because the world is trying to tell you, there are hard times coming. Someone is giving up on their childrens salvation, just because of the way the enemy has them acting.

You better get hold of yourself, and get into the word of GOD, and see what He says, and live by His words, and not whomever the enemy is using to feed you lies. AMEN!

Because that is what they are, LIES! If what your friends or family members or whoever you are listening to is telling you something that does not line up with the word of God, then it is a LIE! AMEN!

Sometimes we have to keep bad news from reaching our friends and families ears, because they want to jump on that pity wagon, or that fear wagon, and they will have you in the ground before the ink on the report is dry. If you are struggling with a situation, with a bad diagnosis, or bad report of a loved one, or whatever, you need to call a PRAYER WARRIOR, someone who knows the word of GOD and BELIEVES it and have them come into agreement with you with what GOD says over your situation, and then RECEIVE it, and then PRAISE HIM FOR THE GOOD REPORT. AMEN! And then PRAISE HIM EVERYDAY, until the manifestation of HIS answer comes to pass.

Don't go about calling up more buddies, and asking for their prayers for your deliverance. NO, you have already come into agreement with His word, now it is time to stand on HIS WORD. AMEN!

Phil 4 v 6-7....Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus......

Remember doubt, and fear is from the enemy. The bad report is from the enemy. Get out the word of God and read HIS REPORT. AMEN! Let His WORD guard your heart and your mind.

Phil 4 v 8....Finally brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy, meditate on these things......

God says meditate on His words. They are truth, they are noble, they are lovely, they are of GOOD REPORT. AMEN! They are life and death to those who find them.

PS 119 v 15....I will meditate on Your precepts, and contemplate Your ways. I will delight myself in Your statutes; I will not forget Your word....

Prov 4 v 20-23....My son, give attention to my words; Incline your ear to my sayings. Do not let them depart from your eyes; keep them in the midst of your heart; for they are life to those who find them, and health to all their flesh. Keep your heart with all diligence, for out of it spring the issues of life.....

Prov 3 v 5-8.....Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths. Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the LORD and depart from evil. It will be health to your flesh, and strength to your bones....

God is telling us, to not trust in what the enemy tells you when he puts fear and doubt in your minds, but trust in His words and His ways and He will deliver you from your troubles. AMEN!

We need to live our lives by God's word and not the word of the enemy. AMEN!


Idol Worship & Idle Worship

Not much difference.

Let me explain. We all know what the word says about worhiping idols, (graven images) of other gods. The dictionary says an idol is an image or object worshiped as a god. Well, God says, that He is a jealous God and we are to have no other Gods. Besides what can a idol, a piece of wood, silver, metal whatever it is made of do for you anyway? It has no life. Our God is a living God. Our God created the very substance that is used to make idols. So now I ask you, which God is more real?

Our God is not a statute, our Jesus is not the image hanging on the cross in some churches still today. Jesus was taken down off that cross over 2000 years ago, placed in a tomb, and then was raised up on the third day, and is alive today seated at the right hand of the one and true GOD who created all things. AMEN!

Acts 19 v 24-27.....For a certain man named Demetrius, a silversmith, who made silver shrines of Diana, brought no small profit to the craftsmen. He called them together with the workers of similar occupation, and said; "Men, you know that we have our prosperity by this trade. Moreover you see and hear that not only at Ephesus, but throughout almost all Asia, this Paul has persuaded and turned away many people, saying that they are not gods which are made with hands. So not only is this trade of ours in danger, but also the temple of the great goddess Diana may be despised and her magnificence destroyed, whom all Asia and the world worship.....

Do you see where the concern is here? The concern is that these craftsmen who make these idols with their hands, (the same hands as anybody else) are concerned that their trade is not going to be so wealthy to them any longer when people quit worshipping their idols. They had a pretty lucrative business going on all over Asia. Now, if these were real gods, don't you think they could rise up and stop themselves from being destroyed?

Exodus 20 v 3-5a.....You shall have no other gods before Me. You shall not make for yourself a carved image, any likeness of anything that is in heaven above or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; you shall not bow down to them, nor serve them. For I, the LORD your GOD, am a jealous God,.........

So now we know we are not to worship idols. We have been told in His word, how He feels about this.

Now, what about idle worship? In the dictionary the word idle means to do nothing, lazy, useless, worthless, wasting time....

When we just give idle worhsip to the LORD, in other words when we just go to church on Sunday, or Saturday or whenever, just because that is the day we are suppose to go to church, and we sit in there thinking about, what we could be doing, like fishing, golfing, cooking out, visiting, shopping, etc. When we sit there with our minds wandering instead of being focused on WORSHIP, then that is idle worship. You may as well have stayed home. I mean if you are going to church just because you are trying to keep up your appearances then you might as well stay at home. Let me ask you this. Are you constantly late for church, do you purposely miss praise and worship time, do you feel changed when you leave or are you still aggravated and just trying to get to the car and out of the parking lot before everyone else? If you answered yes to any of these, then you might want to check your spirit and see how you are worshiping Him who gave EVERYTHING for you.

God wants your best when you worship Him. God does not want idle worship or you worshiping any idols. He feels the same about one as He does the other. AMEN!

Matthew 15 v 7-9.....Hypocrites! Well did Isaiah prophesy about you, saying; "These people draw near to Me with their mouth, and honor Me with their lips, but their heart is far from Me. And in vain they worship Me, teaching as doctrines the commandments of men."......

John 4 v 23.....But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in Spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him.......

1 Chron 16 v 29....Give to the Lord the glory due His name; bring an offering, and come before Him, Oh, Worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness!.....

Don't be an idle/idol worshiper. Worship the LORD with all your heart, your mind your soul and your strength. Worship Him with LOVE.

What is another way to worship the LORD your God?

Cannot Snatch From The Father

We are secure in the Father's hands. Once we get a revelation of that, we will rest in His promises to us in every area of our lives. What is keeping you bound in fear over something? Is it fear over a health condition, fear over your finances, fear over relationships, fear over your children's safety? Whatever your challenges might be, the word tells us to worry for nothing. We have to learn to face our challenges with God's word and not with our own thinking. AMEN!

Matt 6 v 31-34...."Therefore do not worry saying, What shall we eat? or What shall we drink? or What shall we wear? For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you. Therefore, do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble......

In other Jesus is telling you here, that if God takes care of you in these minor details, then how much more will He take care of you when you need Him in your time of trials?

John 10 v 28-30...."And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand. My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of My Father's hand. I and My Father are one."......

PS 91 v 5-6....You shall not be afraid of the terror by night, nor of the arrow that flies by day, nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness, nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday...

This means that you shall not be afraid of all that crap you hear on the nightly news of all the meaness that is reaping havoc in this world. Why, look at the next verse.

PS 91 v 7....a thousand may fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand; but it shall not come near you....


PS 121 v 2-4....My help comes from the LORD, who made heaven and earth. He will not allow your foot to be moved; He who keeps you will not slumber. Behold, He who keeps Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep...

There it is, no more sleepless nights for you now. I mean if you get a revelation of what the word is telling you in that verse. God who created you, does not sleep nor slumber. In other words, He is alert, He is on watch. You do not have to stay up (loose sleep, worrying) and keep watch over your health, your finances, your children. If you gave these things to the LORD, then you can go on to sleep and rest knowing that He is taking care of these things for you. AMEN!

Matt 6 v 33.....But seek first the kingdom of GOD and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you....

PS 55 v 22....Cast your burden on the LORD, and He shall sustain you; He shall never permit the righteous to be moved....

Remember we have the victory because He has already fought our battles and won them by His stripes and His blood. AMEN!

2 Cor 4 v 8-9....We are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed.....

You see we may have to fight the enemy, but the battle is in our minds. Jesus has already won the victory over the battle, but we let the enemy attack our minds and try to tell us differently, and that is where you start losing the battle. Remember the enemy is in your mind. He can not physically attack you because Jesus has already defeated him. How then do you fight. With the word of GOD. The same way Jesus fought him and defeated him. AMEN!

1 Cor 15 v 57-58....But thanks be to GOD, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the LORD, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the LORD....

Don't give up, is what this scripture is telling us. Don't give in to the enemy, no matter how bad he may make you feel, you stand fast and say I FEEL GREAT, I CAN DO ALL THINGS THROUGH CHRIST WHO STRENGTHENS ME. HALLELUJAH! DON"T GIVE IN.

The enemy works through our minds by putting fear over our circumstances in our minds. DON"T LET IT TAKE ROOT!

2 Tim 1 v 7.....For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind....

REMEMBER THOSE WORDS. If you have fear over something, you are giving life to whatever it might be, and if there is fear it is not from GOD. But God has equipped you with HIS word to beat that fear, and He has given you authority to speak to that fear using HIS voice and His power. AMEN!

Take a clue from Jesus, and you can easily defeat the devil everytime. Just say IT IS WRITTEN, and then quote the scripture to him and when you resist him, he has to flee. AMEN!

1 Pet 5 v 6-8....Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time, casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you. Be sober and vigilant, because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour....

The word tells us no weapon formed against you shall prosper, it does not say the enemy won't try to form one against you, but it does say, IT SHALL NOT PROSPER! AMEN! Why, because we resist the enemy.

James 4 v 7......Therefore submit to God, resist the devil and he will flee from you....

What is the best way to resist the devil? With the WORD OF GOD in your heart.

Good Seed - Good DNA

People are always talking about how they inherited this bad gene or this bad hair from their ancestors or their mother or father. You probably did. But when you as a child of God start saying you have some bad gene that causes you sickness or some disease to come over your body, then you are speaking that into your own life, and listening to the enemy, and speaking against the word of God.

You see once the seed of Jesus was planted into your soil (your heart) and you allowed it to grow. You allowed your heart to be fertile and to receive Him, then you became a seed of Christ. Your DNA has changed. You became a new man, not only in your mind, but also in your body.

You are now in Christ, you are no longer of this world, but you are a child of the kingdom of God. You are a joint heir with Christ Jesus. That means you now share His DNA. Just so you know, there is no sickness, no disease, no pain, no poverty, no lack in any area in His body or His DNA. Therefore if you are abiding in Him, there can be none in you. Oh, there it is. IF YOU ARE ABIDING IN HIM.

We are free from these things not because of how we act or what we do right, not by law, but by blood. So when these things come on a child of God, we allow that. We have the power to stay disease free, pain free, poverty free. The battle is in our minds, where Satan attacks us. You see Satan will put the seed in our mind, that we have an illness, He may even use someone to speak that to you, but we as Christians, as children of God, as joint heirs with Jesus, have to use the power given us by Jesus and the Father to rebuke that seed, cast out that seed and never let it take root in our mind. Because if we let it in our mind, then we start meditating on it, speaking to it every day, and before long it will manifest and spread through out our bodies.

We have to use our faith that we were given (each the same measure) and believe the word of God instead of the word of the enemy.

Romans 4 v 13...For the promise that he would be the heir of the world was not to Abraham or to his seed through the law, but through the righteousness of faith....

Col. 2 v 12....buried with Him in baptism, in which you also were raised with Him through faith in the working of God, who raised Him from the dead.....

Through the working of God in your faith you have been raised up and seated with the LORD JESUS in heavenly places. You have the authority and power given to Jesus to speak to anything that tries to comes against you and it has to bow its knee to Jesus whose blood you are washed in. AMEN!

Col. 2 v 14-15....having wiped out the handwriting of requirements that was against us, which was contrary to us. And He has taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the cross. Having disarmed principalities and powers, He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them in it.....

You see Satan has no right to come before the throne of God, because Jesus stood there and His blood has covered where Satan once stood before God. Satan will never be able to come before the throne and accuse you of anything. But you have the right to come before the throne and accuse him when he tries to come against you, and your Father will see that you have been covered in the blood of His Son, and He will protect you. AMEN!

Heb. 4 v 16....Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need....

All the grace and mercy you need to get you through whatever the enemy is attacking you with is yours for the asking at the throne of your Father. AMEN! Grace and Mercy is LOVE, and LOVE is JESUS, and He is the author and finisher of our faith. Our faith is where we find our HOPE. Not hope like wishing, but HOPE which is LOVE, MERCY, GRACE. All which belong to us.

Heb. 12 v 2...looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of GOD........

Don't place your health in the DNA of your ancestors, but remember you are of GOOD SEED, you are the seed of Abraham and therefore heirs to the promises made to him by the Father. You have the blood of Jesus now, and that is the best DNA one could have. There are no bad genes in His DNA. AMEN!

GAL. 3 v 29....and if you are Christ's then you are Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise....

How do we fight the enemy when he tries to attack us with sin, sickness, disease, poverty? How do we stand against him? We stand against him with our faith in Jesus. We must build up our bodies to be strong in faith every day through His word. AMEN!

When you are believing for something, like your healing, your finances to be set right, a job, whatever it might be that you feel God says you have, and then all of a sudden, a voice rings out in your head, "what if you are not going to be healed, what if you do not get the job, what if you are going to be poor"?

This is when you have to shout the enemy down, and let them know they have no place in your mind, your head, your spirit. They have no right to ask you what if, to question the authority of God in your life. We have to be bold and say THANK YOU GOD, and tell the enemy what if it all goes God's way, where will you be enemy? We have to turn those what ifs back on the enemy. We have to throw the enemy into fear instead of letting the enemy feeds us fear.

God did not give us the spirit of fear, so when those what ifs come up and begin to cause us fear and make us question, we have to recognize them for what they are, and that is they are the enemy trying to get the upper hand, because the enemy knows what God says, he wants to steal the word from you, so that you will meditate on his what ifs instead of God's promises. AMEN!

Phil 4 v 6-7.....Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus......

So what if the next time you are struggling with the enemy over your health, finances, relationships, whatever it might be, you start shouting and praising God and thanking Him for His promises to see you through. AMEN! Raise those hands and worship Him, and drown out the what ifs everytime they try to creep into your thinking. AMEN!

Remember if you have fear, it is not from God, so get rid of it, with His word.

2 Tim 1 v 7....For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.....

Col. 4 v 2....Continue earnestly in prayer, being vigilant in it with thanksgiving....

PS 119 v 29....Oh give thanks to the LORD, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever....

His mercy doesn't quit because the devil puts fear in you, because you start questioning what if, no His mercy endures forever, you just have to put His mercy before your fear and the devil will have to flee. AMEN!

His mercy will always win out. So in all things give thanks unto the LORD, and praise His name and meditate on His promises, and drown out the enemy's little words of what if with the mighty name of JESUS. AMEN! Everytime the enemy says what if, you shout JESUS. Because the word tells us, every knee shall bow to the name of JESUS. (that means every sickness, every sin, every pain, every financial woe, every lack, EVERYTHING must bow to the name of JESUS. AMEN! AMEN!

What Happens When Chrisitans Argue

When Christians argue with each other and tear each other down, they are breaking a strong cord of unity. They are destroying the power of unity. God did not make us all just alike. But He says, when two come together they shall withstand the enemy, but when a threefold cord is formed it is not easily broken.

You see, we may not all agree on doctrine, but if we have the one goal, that is to win lost souls for the Lord Jesus Christ and His kingdom, then we need to form a cord that can not be broken. We need to come together in unity to win souls out in the communitys, and leave doctrine at home.

God made men and women different, and together they make a whole. Same with husbands and wives with their differences set aside, they come together and make a whole, a strong force to be reckoned with. The same is true with Christians, when we all come together in unity, we are a strong force to be reckoned with. How many lost souls do you imagine would be saved in a service where all Christians come together for that purpose, of winning souls and worshiping the Lord, and not just trying to be religous. The enemy would not have a chance to steal the lost if they are surrounded by a cord of three or more all on the same page as to what the Lord Jesus really wants us to do.

We are to share the gospel, the good news, we are to reach out to the lost, and offer them the gift of salvation, we are to love them into the kingdom of God. Simply put, we are to share Jesus and His wonderful gift with them. AMEN!

Don't let the devil drive a wedge between you and another Christian friend, just because you have different doctrines, no stand together and let people see the strong mighty force of God at work, instead of Christians arguing in strife over doctrine. Stand and be a force for Jesus, be a stronghold that cannot be broken. Stand in the power of unity.

Eccle. 4 v 9-12....Two are better than one. because they have a good reward for their labor. For if they fail, one will lift up his companion. But woe to him who is alone when he falls. For he has no one to help him up. Again, if two lie down together, they will keep warm; but how can one be warm alone? Though one may be overpowered by another, two can withstand him, and a threefold cord is not quickly broken......

We as Christians should be uplifting one another, not tearing down each other. We must walk out the word of God in our lives daily, so the lost will know which way to go, and know where to find the truth in Jesus and not be confused by hearing Christians argue over doctrine.

What Is Stealing From God

What is it in your life that steals time away from God? Or what is it that you are doing that is stealing away your divine health that God says you are to walk in? What is keeping you from walking in His blessings everyday of your life?

Are you walking in divine health, are you eating without scarcity, are you in an overflow of abundance of good, are you receiving your heart's desires? If you answered no to any of these, then it is time to check to see where you are not following His will, where you are not being obedient to what His commands are.

Deut. 8 v 1....Every commandment which I command you today you must be careful to observe, that you may live and multiply, and go in and possess the land of which the Lord swore to your fathers...

Deut. 7 v 13-15.....And He will love you and bless you and multiply you; He will also bless the fruit of your womb and the fruit of your land, your grain and your new wine and your oil, the increase of your cattle and the offspring of your flock, in the land of which He swore to your fathers to give you. You shall be blessed above all peoples; there shall not be a male or female barren among you or among your livestock. And the LORD will take away from you all sickness, and will afflict you with none of the terrible diseases of Egypt which you have known, but will lay them on all those who hate you.....

We have to be obedient to walk in His ways in order to receive the blessings that belong to us. So whatever we might be doing, eating, saying, or listening to that is stealing from what God has for us, we need to stop, and turn from those things and turn back to God. AMEN!

We need to seek God's wisdom in everything that we do. We need to look to Him before any major decisions, but not only major decisions, but also before we put anything into our mouths, or our ears, that is not healthy for us according to His ways. AMEN! Yes, we need to be aware of what we are feeding ourselves at all times, our physical bodies and our spiritual bodies through our hearing. AMEN!

What command are we left with is this

Matthew 22 v 37-40....Jesus said to him, "You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. On these two commandments hang all the law and prophet".........

We need to establish our feet on His path and not the path of the enemy. We need to seek what He has to say to us in every area of our lives. We need to be aware of what is stealing our lives from God. AMEN!

We need to

Why Do We Not Get Healed

So many people ask why did sister so and so not get healed? Why doesn't brother so and so receive his healing? They worship the Lord, they believe in God, they believe Jesus died for their sins. Why do they still not get healed?

We can believe all day long but not act upon the word of God and receive nothing. That is why we read earlier about being believing believers. We can't just read the bible each day, pray about the same thing every day but not believe that we are receiving, and also not acting upon what the word tells us to do.

Look in Proverbs and you will see what I am saying.

Prov 4 v 20-22.....My son, give attention to my words; incline your ear to my sayings. Do not let them depart from your eyes; keep them in the midst of your heart; for they are life to those who find them, and health to all their flesh....

Let's stop there a minute and meditate on what the word is telling us to do. Pay attention to what the word is saying, keep them in your heart, this is where your life and health come from. The word of God. You can not continue to watch soap operas, read trashy novels, hang out with the wrong crowd, join in with gossip and off color jokes, you can not keep feeding these things into your heart and not expect to be ill. What you take in has to come out in some form or manner.

Meditate on His words and not on the television, listen to praise and worship music, and not lyrics that are not from God and are not speaking like God would speak. You say, oh, it does not hurt anything to listen to my kind of music, or tell a joke now and then or watch the shows I like to watch. Ok, well you keep listening to the lies of the devil and stay sick then. Stay in pain, stay in strife, stay in your misery. Because where those things are, God is not. If you want to be healed, you need to be in His presence. AMEN! If His words are not what you are meditating on, and keeping before your eyes and ears, then how can you expect to receive from Him. You will receive from what you are in tuned to. AMEN!

Prov 4 v 23-27....Keep your heart with all diligence, for out of it spring the issues of life. Put away from you a deceitful mouth, and put perverse lips far from you. Let your eyes look straight ahead, and your eyelids look right before you. Ponder the path of your feet, and let all your ways be established. Do not turn to the right or the left; remove your foot from evil....

Ok, that kind of says what we were saying above. Keep your heart with all diligence. Don't let harmful things that are not of God enter into your heart. How do you do that? Keep them out of your eyes, and your hearing. Put away from you a deceitful mouth and perverse lips, in other words, quit gossiping about your neighbors (meaning anyone) and quit using the language you hear others use, and it's not just talking about filthy language, it is things you say like, you look bad today, are you feeling sick today, or I am so poor I can't pay attention. Quit talking like the world using perverse lips and start speaking what the word says over yourself. AMEN! Keep your eyes straight ahead, do not turn to the right or left. Keep your eyes and ears intuned to what the word is saying, do not turn to the world for confirmation of sickness. God says in His word you were healed, don't look to someone else to tell you otherwise. Don't let friends and family who stay in the world's thinking instead of the WORD, steer you in the wrong direction. Ponder your path, let your feet stay on His path, do not wander off and join in with evil. Establish your ways, know who you are in Christ Jesus and let all those around you know who you are. Remember in order for the enemy to be afraid of you and to know that you have the victory over him, he first has to know that you know who you are in Christ Jesus. He has to to know that you know you have authority over him, before he will believe it and flee.

The only way to receive your healing is to act upon the word of God. To do what He tells you to do. To keep His instructions before your eyes and ears and in your heart. That is your prescription for your healing. You just have to be diligent and faithful to take it everyday. AMEN!

John 6 v 63...It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life....
