The Lord’s Prayer

Is the Lord’s Prayer first and foremost a prayer for spiritual power? When asked where the Kingdom of God was, Jesus replied that it is within us. So, when We pray, “Thy Kingdom come”, aren’t we really asking that God’s kingdom be established within us as Jesus said. And when we pray, “Thy will be done on Earth, as it is in Heaven,” aren’t we praying that His love, forgiveness, and healing should be manifested through us to the rest of the world?

Jesus referred to bread as the word of God many times. So, when we pray, “give us this day our daily bread”, aren’t we asking for God’s word. Jesus prayed, “Sanctify them with your truth. Your word is truth.” We are, then, asking to be sanctified through His word.

Forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us,” is easy to understand. Jesus made it clear many times that we could not be forgiven unless we forgave others, and in forgiving, then we are forgiven.

Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil,” seems plain enough. We are asking not to be tempted into sin, or delivered into Satan’s bondage.

Jesus said, “Seek first the Kingdom of Heaven and all these things will be added unto you.” I believe The Lord’s Prayer has all to do with obtaining all our spiritual needs from God, and when we achieve that, all our physical or earthly needs will be met.

Paul wrote that, “In the latter days, men will be holding on to a form of Godliness, but denying its true power.” I believe that the bulk of Christianity has been put off by the antics of those who want, but only pretend, to have the baptism of the Holy Spirit. For that reason many in Christianity shun anything spiritual, and only hold on to the promise of salvation.

I, too, believe that some people, in their quest for the spirit, simply pretend, in hopes that it will one day be real. But, I, also, know that you cannot enter into a spiritual relationship with God, without tears – tears of happiness, tears of shame, and tears of thanksgiving. Let all of Christianity, then, kneel before the throne of God in tears of praise for our Creator and our Redeemer. Let us all receive His spiritual power and blessings as He promised. And may the world be blessed by Him through us.

Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven.”

What is Love?

The media and the PC correct people will say that sex is love, but unbridled sex is simply lust and self-centered selfishness. The Bible states in a number of places that God is love. If God is love, then He is the source of love. He created the universe, all life, and the means to sustain that life. Through love He has watched over us, protected us, and provided the means to find happiness in our lives. And, through love He sent His son to be sacrificed for our sins, so that we could be reconciled to God – love.
Love expresses itself in many ways. It cares for those in need, it uplifts those who are lost and depressed, it puts a smile on those who have forgotten how to smile. Love for our children or future children ensures that they have a stable family and a “forever” mother and father. Love ensures that a future spouse need never to worry or wonder if their mate has been promiscuous in the past or the future. Love brings security and safety to those who need protection. Love builds a path, for ourselves and those we touch, that leads to success and fulfillment.
Yes, love is God, and, also, God within you. So immerse yourself in love and invite others to join you. This is the essence of Christianity.

The Bible – Can You Believe It?

Scoffers of the Bible like to bolster their own twisted beliefs by smearing the Bible. They say that the New Testament wasn’t written for 100 to 300 years after the death of Jesus, and that it was all word-of-mouth and myth. That may be true of other religions and even the words of Greek philosophers, but it certainly isn’t true of the New Testament.
Most of the New Testament was written 20 to 30 years after the death and resurrection of Jesus. The books were written by those who traveled with Jesus, who were taught by Him, had listened to his sermons to the multitudes, and who had witnessed with their own eyes the miracles that he did.
After the crucifixion of Jesus the disciples were afraid for their lives, for having followed him. They went into hiding, hoping to blend back into society. But after his resurrection they could not be deterred from spreading the message of salvation. All but one were killed for their beliefs, but they would not be quiet. This is evidence that they had seen Jesus resurrected.
The night Jesus was taken prisoner, he predicted that Peter would deny him three times before morning, and he did. Jesus had said, “If you deny me before men, I will deny you before the Father.” So Peter stood condemned. But after the resurrection Jesus came to Peter and asked him three times. “Do you love me?”. Peter answered three times that he did. Peter’s three denials of Christ was erased by his three confessions of love for him. And we have another confirmation of Christ’s resurrection.
Yes, the New Testament is true. If you haven’t read it, you need to. It not only is true, but it contains the truth about life, death, and everything in between. Also, read the 53rd chapter of Isaiah, and the 22nd Psalm, and read of Jesus in prophecy hundreds of years before he was born. You owe it to yourself and your soul to learn the truth.

9 Stages of A Civilization

“ The average age of the world’s greatest civilizations has been two hundred years.
These nations have progressed through this sequence:

1. From bondage to spiritual faith;
2. from spiritual faith to great courage;
3. from courage to liberty;
4. from liberty to abundance;
5. from abundance to selfishness;
6. from selfishness to complacency;
7. from complacency to apathy;
8. from apathy to dependence;
9. from dependency back again into bondage.”

Our nation is 230 years old. Can we trace the steps to where we are today? Companies spend billions upon billions of dollars promoting their products – whether they are good or not – and it works. The constant bombardment of commercials sell the product. The media makes billions upon billions of dollars carrying these ads, and the liberal, atheistic message of society in their programs. It, also, works. What would have horrified us a few years ago, now amuses us. We grab hold of every immoral fad that they promote. We are being programmed out of morality and a belief in our Creator who desires to protect us, heal us, and prosper us. And, yet, we blindly allow ourselves to be brain-washed into submission to their inglorious goals of enslavement to outrageous acts that destroy us

If we, as a nation, are to survive, we must stop consuming immorality and making it our own, we must take control of our children, and as a family, we must nurture love, care for others and return to God. When our nation embraced Him, He embraced us and we flourished. We must not turn our backs on our Creator if we are to continue to be a free and loving people. We must stop destroying ourselves by becoming a herd. God created us as individuals, and He judges us as individuals. We are not only judged by what we believe down deep inside, we are judged by what we teach the children that He has placed in our lives. We have a responsibility to ourselves and to our children. Stop believing the media and left-wing politician’s propaganda. There is a God, and He is our only hope for blessings, happiness and prosperity. He is our only hope. Don’t be brain-washed into abandoning Him.

God’s Use Of The Harvest Principle

If you have been following my blogs you’ve seen where Abraham planted the seed, by intending to sacrifice his only son for the forgiveness of his sins, that resulted in salvation to Israel and the world 2000 years late, through God sacrificing His son. It took that long to fulfill, because Abraham’s lineage had to multiply into a nation, that nation had to establish the worship of the One True God, and it had to be at the cusp of diaspora in order to be dispersed from Israel and to spread the good news of salvation to all the world.

Do you, also, realize that the prophets prophesied that the Messiah had to be despised, cursed, beaten and whipped; and that Jesus planted the seed to these things happening to him just days before they happened. He cursed the priests, he used a whip to chase the money changers out of the temple, and he killed a fig tree because it bore no fruit. By the end of the week, he was cursed, whipped and killed as God’s sacrifice for the forgiveness of our sins. Jesus had, also, used the Golden Rule or Harvest Principle to bring it about.

Or did you realize that Jesus had planted the seed to his own resurrection just days before he was crucified, entombed and resurrected. Mary and Martha sent word to Jesus that their brother was near death, and that he should hurry. Jesus chose to remain where he was for another two days, and then went to them. Upon arrival, the brother, Lazarus, had been in the tomb at least three days. Jesus ordered the stone removed from the entrance to the tomb, and ordered Lazarus to come forth. Lazarus was resurrected and came out of the tomb. Shortly, thereafter, Jesus lay in his tomb for three days before he, also, was resurrected., thereby defeating death and promising ever-lasting life to those who believed in him. Again he had used the Golden Rule or Harvest Principle to bring it about.

Naturally, we don’t have the spiritual power to do these things. We can’t kill a fig tree and reap death for ourselves. We can’t use a whip on inanimate objects and reap a horrible whipping for ourselves. We can’t resurrect someone, but because God can, we can expect to be resurrected into ever-lasting life.

For some reason, God maps out His plan for a particular harvest by planting a seed. We call it the Harvest Principle. And, although we don’t have the power to carry out this principle on the magnitude that God does, the law still works in our lives. Whatever we truly want for another person, or do to another person, is what we receive for ourselves. It’s the law. It is the Harvest Principle.

Short Him And Her Conversation

Him: I love you, and want to spend my life with you. Will you marry me?
Her: We don’t need to get married. We have everything we want. We can live our lives
together just like this.
Him: That’s called shacking up. I don’t want to spend my life with someone who wants
free sex. I want to spend my life with someone who loves me enough to commit to
me, and take an oath before God to stay with me forever.
Her: And 50% of those who marry, divorce.
Him: That’s what some people want us to believe, but the actual figure is about 35%, and
in marriages of committed Christians, the figure is less than 25%.
Her: You want me to risk a 25 to 35% chance of divorce?
Him: No. I want us to be 100% committed to each other, loving each other, supporting
each other, raising a family, and growing old together. I don’t want to live my life
as a companion or temporary convenience. I want someone who will stand with
me – someone I can trust to be there forever. That’s what I want to be to that
special person, and that’s what I need from them.
Her: But how can I maintain my independence if I submit myself 100% to another
person?
Him: How can you say that you’re completely independent when you are dependent
on having a job, on having a government that truly has your interests at heart,
on an economy that won’t crash, on grocery stores having food on the shelves,
on the medical profession to rescue you in times of need, or in all your friends
who support you when they need you, but who are loyal only to themselves?
The Bible says that “Whoever Christ frees, is free indeed” It means that if we
accept him, we are free from the traps of the world that seeks to destroy us.
It means that we are FREE to love and be loved.
Her: How can I trust in a God that lets so much suffering in the world?
Him: It isn’t God that causes the suffering in the world. It is mankind that commit
horrendous atrocities to each other in the name of one Satanic philosophy or
another. God doesn’t say that He will destroy all evil in the world and create
heaven on earth. He does promise heaven to those who free themselves from
the world and follow Him.
Her: I’ve always considered myself a Christian. I believe in God, but I’m so caught up
in everything, I haven’t had time to think about Him like you have.
Him: That’s kind of like saying that you love your dog, but keep him tied up in the
back yard, with a little food and water, but no personal contact or interaction
with him.
Her: You’re right. But you’re going to have to help me.
Him: That’s what I’ve been trying to tell you. I want to spend my life helping you,
supporting you, and loving you. I just want the same commitment from you.
Her: What you’ve been saying makes lot of sense. I think I’ve been so caught up
trying to live up to what others say that I want, that I haven’t had time to
think about what is best for me. I think I’d be getting the most out of a
commitment with you.
Him; No. God created marriage so that both the man and woman gets the most
from it When we both love each other and try to make the other happy and
and complete, then our happiness is doubled in our commitment.
Her: My answer is yes. I will marry you.
Him: With God as my witness, I will never hurt you, and I will always lift you up. And
i will strive to keep that beautiful smile on your face.
Her: And with your help and with God’s help, I promise the same to you.
Him; I love you.
Her: I love you, too.

And they lived happily ever after. Oh, they had their share of problems and even some disagreements. But, they always knew that they could count on each other’s love and support regardless of what obstacles they helped each other over. And they did find heaven – together, and then in the next world.

Minions Of Satan

A minion is defined as: minion – definition of minion by the Free Online Dictionary …
http://www.thefreedictionary.com/minion
An obsequious follower or dependent; a sycophant. 2. A subordinate official, especially a servile one. 3. One who is highly esteemed or favored; a darling.

Soon we will celebrate the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ; which to Christians means the defeat of condemnation, death, and Satan. Yet, Satan keeps on fighting. He knows that he is defeated, yet he, also, knows that he can convince millions of people to follow him and lose their souls to him. He attacks us from all sides trying to get us to disobey God and to sin. He uses our environment, our society, and our circumstances to trip us up and turn from God. He even uses those who have already sold out to him, to convince us to serve death and destruction. They are his minions. We call them our peers, and they pressure us to do what we know is wrong, and to do what we are afraid to do. Not all of our peers have sold out to Satan, but those that have pressure us relentlessly. They attempt to convince us that we are wrong in fearing certain acts, and we, in turn, want to please our peers. And so we force ourselves to go against our better judgment and do things that scare us, in order to please or appease them. And every time we commit an act that we know is wrong, we condition and program ourselves to accept the unacceptable, and to embrace the unthinkable.
Jesus voluntarily gave his life so that we could live a life cleansed of sin, and lead a life that was not destructive to ourselves. He rose from his tomb, defeating death and offering eternal life to those who would accept him and his teachings. Will we follow a dummy that pretends to care for us, or will we follow the greatest man who ever lived and who proved his love for us by giving his life for us? If we will stop and think long enough, we’ll know who we should follow. It is Jesus the Messiah, and Son of the Living God. The answer is obvious for all, except for those who have sold their souls for an empty promise of happiness. “Choose you this day, whom you will serve. As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord. (Joshua)”

Daniel’s Prophecy For Our Time?

The prophecy of Daniel (lion’s den) regarding the “end of times.”

Daniel 8:23:26 19He said: “I am going to tell you what will happen later in the time of wrath, because the vision concerns the appointed time of the end. c 20The two-horned ram that you saw represents the kings of Media and Persia. 21The shaggy goat is the king of Greece, and the large horn between its eyes is the first king. 22The four horns that replaced the one that was broken off represent four kingdoms that will emerge from his nation but will not have the same power.

23“In the latter part of their reign, when rebels have become completely wicked, a fierce-looking king, a master of intrigue, will arise. 24He will become very strong, but not by his own power. He will cause astounding devastation and will succeed in whatever he does. He will destroy those who are mighty, the holy people. 25He will cause deceit to prosper, and he will consider himself superior. When they feel secure, he will destroy many and take his stand against the Prince of princes. Yet he will be destroyed, but not by human power.

26“The vision of the evenings and mornings that has been given you is true, but seal up the vision, for it concerns the distant future.”

Is this a prophecy for our time? And who could possibly be this “fierce looking king” who is a master of deceit, who will destroy the rich and religious and take his stand against Christ? He will become powerful, but not by his own power? He will cause devastation and succeed in whatever he does, and considers himself to be superior? Intriguing prophecy. He will be destroyed, but not by human power? Hmmm!

Our Only Weapon – The Word

We must educate the enemies of America to the will of God for all mankind, so that they will condemn themselves as they continue to defy God. Paul said that he would not have known sin except for the law. The law condemns us. Only Christ can save us. We win by becoming a hated, unrelenting thorn in the side. So let us all pound them with the Word, and wait for our enemies to destroy themselves. If they want to silence and destroy us, they will be silenced and destroyed. Our only weapon is God’s Word, and it is no good unless it is relentlessly used against the enemy. Our only hope is in God, who has given us the weapon that will defeat our enemies and save us. Keep pounding with the word until we find victory, and God returns to His rightful place in our society as our protector, provider and Lord of all.
To be silent is to be defenseless So let your voice be heard and the word of God be spread throughout the nation. The enemies of God and America are made defenseless by the Word. Use it and assure victory. Use it and assure salvation for us, our nation and the world. Use the word as God created it to be used.
Blessings, Andy
