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.”

New Age Philosophies

I find it so sad that people are gullible enough to follow new-age gurus who pretend that there is no God, yet base their teachings and truths on the teachings that have been taught in the Bible since the beginning of time. If these teachings are not true, then their new-age philosphy means nothing. But if they are true, then why do they ignore the God that gave these truths to man?
In my book, “Supernatural Power Through One Law” I point out how these truths are based on one law, that states that whatever we want for another will be given to us. Yes, giving to another ensures our prosperity. Forgiving others ensures forgiveness for ourselves Loving others ensures that we will be loved. The list goes on, but all of these truths have been stated over and over again in the Bible. These are not new revelations leading to a new-age philosophy. It is the age-old teachings of God, to prepare His people for a happy and successful life.
We are all “mind, body and spirit”. We are not simply an intelligent piece of meat. We have a spirit, given by a God that wants to continue that connection with His people.
If people would disconnect from the cyber world, and rely on their own intelligence by reading and researching the Bible, they would be amazed at the wisdom and power contained therein. The choice is up to each individual: Follow the crowd like a bunch of lemmings, never to know real truth, or truly become an individual and discover for themselves that there is a God, eagerly waiting for the love and devotion, that He has for so long given them.
Are you a company-loving rodent, or are you a child of the living God?

Prayers

When you pray to God, are your prayers carefully crafted to state your feelings and needs intelligently? Or do you bear your soul to Him, in joy or in tears? Are your prayers proper and upright? Or do you come before Him openly, knowing that He already knows what you are feeling? God doesn’t want another acquaintance. He wants a heartfelt relationship with you, and He expects you to share your true feelings with Him, not just your thoughts.
Yes, He wants to see your heal felt joy, and He wants you to trust Him enough to share your tears with Him. Love Him, trust Him, and share with Him. That’s what He wants with His children. The Bible tells us that Jesus prayed with tears and a loud voice. Don’t be shy or reserved with God. He already knows how you feel. In prayer, He wants you to express it.
Psalms 126:4-6 “those who sow in tears shall reap in joy. He who continually goes forth weeping, bearing seed for sowing, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheave with him.”
Share your tears of sorrow with Him, and He’ll change those tears of despair to tears of Joy. Trust Him. That’s all He asks.

Best Friends

I have a 22 pound West Highland White Terrier named Calley. She is not my dog. She is my little girl. We love each other unconditionally. She trusts in me, relies on me for all her needs and well-being, and follows me everywhere. In return, because of this, I can let my guard down with her and simply love her and concentrate on meeting her every need, all the way down to scratching her belly. And she is so human in so many ways. I see her joy and concerns; and even though she’s a terrier, I’ve seen her scared and running to stand behind me or between my feet. But one night, as I let her go outside, we heard a terrible growling and grunting out in the darkness. It scared me, not knowing what kind of animal would be making that kind of noise. I later decided that it must have been an angry or rabid Badger heading our way. But Calley didn’t hesitate, she started off and was heading for the threat. Luckily I grabbed her before she got off of the porch, and I brought her inside. This time I was scared and she wasn’t. I don’t know if she thinks of me as her father or her master or something in between, but she was going to protect me without giving any thought of her own safety.
I think about that now and then, and I’ve concluded that we too become fearful and occasionally need to take refuge in our Heavenly Father. And, although we’re weak and vulnerable, sometimes we, in our service to our Father, may need to put aside our fears and be willing to even lay down our lives for Him if the need arises.
I sometimes wonder: do I love my Heavenly Father as much as Calley loves me? Will I, without hesitation, lay my life on the line when my Father needs me? I believe I will. You see, unconditional love affects a person that way, whether they’re a human or a little white terrier. It gives us strength.
Do you love your God unconditionally? Only then will you be able to release your death grip on the world. That’s when you will find true freedom.
John 8:36 So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.

Wisdom Versus A Rehash Of Destruction

It simply amazes me that there are so many politicians who do not reverence God as the founding fathers did. They reject God’s wisdom, but expect wisdom to come from the feeble minds of twisted men. These politicians run their campaigns using catch-phrases that resemble wisdom. But by the time that they get to Washington they sound like a herd of braying jackasses, ready to be harnessed and led by their leader. They’re so busy hugging their personal tree that they can’t see the forest. In other words, they’re so wrapped up in their bureaucratic, nit-picking meddling that they can’t see the big picture.

When God brought the Israelites out of Egypt, they still thought like the slaves that they had been. In order to make them a strong self-governing nation He taught them the secrets to becoming the nation that He envisioned for them. God’s spiritual law dictated that whatever a person did to another, would be done to them. So, He taught them exalt and worship only Him, in order that God could exalt them as a nation. He taught them morality in order to bring them together in trust and to bring order to their nation. To put it another way, God taught the Israelites to “love God with all their hearts, mind, soul and strength; and to love each other as they love themselves.”
Romans 8:6 “For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.”
Proverbs 3:5-6 “Trust in the Lord with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
6 in all your ways submit to him,
and he will make your paths straight.
God laid out the blue print 2500 years ago so that each person could become a strong and successful person; and so that all the people combined could become a strong and successful nation. The plan isn’t that difficult to understand. We, as a people, must stop believing the lies of Satan, and begin trusting God. Sunday is not a day for recreation, but a day for restoration. If this nation and the world has any chance at all, we must return to God, worship Him, renew our strength in Him and make His teachings our own.
Genius doesn’t make right. Look at Hitler, Lenin, Stalin, Mao Tsetung etc. Only God is of pure heart, and only God knows all things. Trust only in God.
“God Is Love”

Gifts Of The Holy Spirit

Some people, and even some churches believe that communication with God ended with the original twelve disciples. Yet, I can’t find the Bible verse that states that.  The apostle Paul, however,  was writing to new followers of Christ thirty-three years after the death and resurrection of Jesus, wanting them to know of the gifts of the Holy Spirit. These gifts cannot be given without communicating with God. He speaks to us through strong feelings (dread, or a feeling of peace and wellness) , dreams, visions and even by speaking to us. His voice doesn’t come from outside of us, but seems to originate in an area above and behind the right ear where we process sound, including voices.

I Corinthians 12:1-11
12″ Brothers and sisters, I want you to know about the gifts of the Holy Spirit. 2 You know that at one time you were unbelievers. You were somehow drawn away to worship statues of gods that couldn’t even speak. 3 So I want you to know that no one who is speaking with the help of God’s Spirit says, “May Jesus be cursed.” And without the help of the Holy Spirit no one can say, “Jesus is Lord.”

4 There are different kinds of gifts. But they are all given to believers by the same Spirit. 5 There are different ways to serve. But they all come from the same Lord. 6 There are different ways the Spirit works. But the same God is working in all these ways and in all people.

7 The Holy Spirit is given to each of us in a special way. That is for the good of all. 8 To some people the Spirit gives a message of wisdom. To others the same Spirit gives a message of knowledge. 9 To others the same Spirit gives faith. To others that one Spirit gives gifts of healing. 10 To others he gives the power to do miracles. To others he gives the ability to prophesy. To others he gives the ability to tell the spirits apart. To others he gives the ability to speak in different kinds of languages they had not known before. And to still others he gives the ability to explain what was said in those languages. 11 All the gifts are produced by one and the same Spirit. He gives gifts to each person, just as he decides.”

Jesus said in John 10:27
My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me.”

He didn’t say that my twelve disciples hear my voice. He said that his followers (all who follow him) hear his voice.

In Acts 2:17 the message of Joel 2:28 is repeated:
‘In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams.”

I believe that God still speaks to us, and the Holy Spirit still gives us the gifts of the spirit – but only when we diligently seek these things from God. Jesus said, “Ask and it will be given you, seek and ye shall find, knock and the door will be opened unto you.” I believe we need to seek after God. The Bible says in John 4:24 “God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and in truth.”

Rules and legality has its place, but we must not only obey Him, we must seek a spiritual relationship with Him, if we are to set ourselves apart from the traps of this world. Yes, we need God, we need His Spirit and we need His spiritual gifts.

Philippians 4:13 “I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.”

Blessings, Andy

Want A Better Life?

We all want a better life. We want the most this life has to offer for us. Yet, we all, in one way or another, do just the opposite of what is in our best interests. Instead of seeking truth ourselves, we tend to listen to the rest of society or the world that is dominated by Satan. The world teaches us not to listen to our conscience, but to listen to the media and our peers. It teaches us, not to recognize God for what He is, but to put ourselves and our own self-interests first in our lives. The world has created a “ME” society where only self matters. God teaches that “whatever we done to ourselves, we should do to another person”. That means that we cannot find love, happiness and fulfillment in our lives, without first wanting it for someone else. That is just the opposite of what the world teaches. It means putting others and their hopes and dreams ahead of ourselves. As we do this we put ourselves second, and others first, in order that God will put us first in His life. It sounds backwards unless we consider it closer. Is it better to be number one in your own life, with limited power, abilities, and understanding, or is it better to be number one with God who can do all things – even the the miraculous?
Jesus said that, “The enemy (Satan) comes only to steal, kill and destroy.  I come that they might have life, and life more abundantly.”
Satan has made the world believe that they are helping themselves by ignoring God. Satan has taught us that we are serving ourselves, feeding our egos and maintaining our independence when we “shack up” instead of finding a marriage partner and forming a family. He teaches us that we are doing what is right for us, even though listening to him steals our lives, destroys our chance of happiness, destroys the lives of our children as they grow up, and destroys society. Do we really want future ‘baby factories” and children raised in government institutions?
Do we really think that illicit or “free sex” is protecting ourselves or our society? Do we really believe that pornography is not teaching watchers to fantasize perversion?
Do we really believe that the debate concerning marriage between one man and one woman isn’t hurting society?
Satan comes only to steal, kill and destroy.
Will we allow Satan to steal our lives, our society and our nation? Will we allow him to kill us with drugs or reckless behavour? Will we allow Satan to destroy to destroy us, our hopes and dreams, and our future? Will we be a party to his plan to “steal, kill and destroy.” Or will we follow the teachings of God, allow Him to make a good life for us, and give us eternal life, without the frailties, faults and pain of this world?
Jesus said that it begins by learning to love God with all your heart, soul, mind and strength; and loving ones neighbor as he loves himself. The rest is easy: Do unto others what you would have done to you, and you’ll be on your way to life and life more abundantly.

Learn of God’s plan for your life by reading the Word of God, the Bible, beginning with the New Testament, before you allow yourself to be taken in by the lies of Satan.

Cleansing

What if people used the same lame excuses for not washing as they do for not going to church? It might sound like this.

1. I was made to wash as a child.
2. People who wash are hypocrites . . . they think that they are
cleaner than other people.
3. There are so many different kinds of soap, I could never decide
which one was right.
4. I used to wash, but it got boring so I stopped.
5. I still wash on special occasions, like Christmas and Easter.
6. None of my friends wash.
7. I’m still young – when I’m older and have got a bit dirtier I might
start washing.
8. People who make soap are only after your money.
9. I try to to live right and avoid dirt, so I don’t need to wash.
10 I just never have time to wash.

Thwarting

The definition of thwarting is: 1. To prevent the occurrence, realization, or attainment of: They thwarted her plans.
2. To oppose and defeat the efforts, plans, or ambitions of another or others.
The word thwarting isn’t used very often today. We mostly find it in literature written years ago. Yet, we’ve all been thwarted at some time or another. In fact thwarting seems to be our national past time. People are increasingly more self-centered and less concerned about the welfare of others. Some people will go out of their way just to thwart someone, in order to keep them down and beneath the thwarter. However, a little known bylaw of the Golden Rule or Harvest Principles states: Thwart and be thwarted. Yes, whatever we want for another will be done to us. If we thwart, we can expect to be thwarted. In fact, the only way not to be thwarted is not to thwart. Or to put it in another way, if a person encourages, promotes, or helps another person to reach their goals or desires, the person will reap encouragement, promotion or help in their goals or desires. Therefore, the thwarting cycle is thwarted by doing good to others.
Jesus told a parable about a king returning and dividing the nations as a shepherd would divide sheep from the goats. He then said to the righteous people that they had fed him when he was hungry, clothed him when he was naked, took him in when he was homeless, visited him when he was sick, and went to him when he was in prison. The righteous people asked him when they had done all that for him, and he replied, “Whatever you do unto the least of these my brethren, you do unto me.” In other words, whatever we do to another person is done to God. Jesus said that the king rewarded the righteous people for their good deeds, but condemned the other group because of their unrighteousness. The unrighteous had thwarted others, instead of blessing others.
So I guess thwarting is really the opposite of blessing.
I hope everyone will refrain from thwarting and will have a blessed day.

Sanctification

John 17:17 “Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.” are the words prayed by Jesus.

Wikipedia describes the word as “Sanctification is the act or process of acquiring sanctity, of being made or becoming holy[1]. “Sanctity” is an ancient concept widespread among religions, a property of a thing or person sacred or set apart within the religion, from temple vessels to days of the week, to a human believer who achieves this state. To sanctify is literally “to set apart for special use or purpose”, figuratively “to make holy or sacred”, and etymologically from the Latin verb sanctificare which in turn is from sanctus “holy” and facere “to make”

To sanctify then is to “set apart”, to make “special”, to protect and to make safe. For a Christian, it is to be protected from Satan by the special status that we have with God through Jesus.
The Israelites in Egypt were told to paint the the blood of a sacrificial lamb on the door posts and above the door in order to protect them from the Angel of Death that would kill the first born in all of Egypt. God completed his plan for the redemption of mankind with His son as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of man. His blood cleanses us, makes us special with God and begins the sanctification process. Jesus asked His Father to sanctify us through truth, and that His word is truth. We are saved by our acceptance of Messiah’s death, burial and resurrection. We find sanctity and safety from Satan through God’s word. The more we learn of God and truth by studying His word (the Bible), the greater is our special place and protection in God. Are you sanctified? Do you need a place of sanctity and protection from the evil in the world? Security, protection, sanctity, forgiveness and redemption are found in the Bible – The word of God. “Jesus said, knock and the door will be opened unto you. Ask and you shall receive. Seek and you shall find.”
If you never seek the treasure, you’ll never find it. If you seek God, He’ll make Himself known to you. All the treasures of Heaven will be yours, if you’ll seek, ask, and knock at the door. The one behind the door will welcome you as His child, and you will, at last, find Shalom.
Blessings, Andy
