What Mysteries And Hidden Truths Are Revealed To Apostles And Prophets – Spiritual Reading.



The thing taught in the Bible regarding the inspiration of the Apostles and Prophets, the inspiration of the various authors of the books of the Bible, is that truth hidden from men for ages, and which they had not discovered, and could not discover, by the unaided processes of human reasoning, even human reasoning at its very best and highest, has been revealed to Apostles and Prophets in the Holy Spirit.


We find this very clearly taught in Eph. 3:2-5: “If so be that ye have heard of the dispensation of that grace of God which was given me to you-ward; (3) how that by revelation was made known unto me the mystery, as I wrote before in few words, (4) whereby when ye read, ye can perceive my understanding in the mystery of Christ; (5) which in other generations was not made known unto the sons of men, as it hath now been revealed unto his holy apostles and prophets in the Spirit.” 


The meaning of these words is unmistakable. Paul here declares in words the meaning of which is perfectly plain, that God “in the Spirit” had revealed “unto His holy apostles and prophets” “the mystery of Christ” which in former generations had not been made known unto the sons of men, which they had not discovered and could not discover except by revelation from God; Paul and the other apostles and prophets knew it by direct revelation from God himself through the Holy Ghost.


The teaching is inescapable that the Bible contains truth that men never had discovered and never could have discovered if left to themselves, but truth which the Father in great grace has revealed to His children through His servants the prophets and apostles. We see in this the folly, a folly so common in our day, of seeking to test the statements of Scripture by the conclusions of human reasoning, or by the intuitions of the “Christian consciousness.”


The revelation of God transcends human reasoning, and therefore human reasoning cannot be its test. Furthermore, a consciousness that is truly and fully Christian is the product of the study and absorption of Bible truth. It is not the test of the truth of the Bible,—it is the product of meditation on the Bible. If our “consciousness” differs from the statements of the Bible, it is not as yet a fully “Christian consciousness,” and the thing for us to do is not to try to pull God’s revelation down to the level of our consciousness but to tone our consciousness up to the level of God’s Word.

Why Democrats And Liberals Should Stop Insulting, Abusing And Calling Donald Trump Derogatory Names

Why Democrats And Liberals Should Stop Insulting, Abusing And Calling Donald Trump Derogatory Names Blog Post Banner Image

Why Democrats And Liberals Should Stop Insulting, Abusing And Calling Donald Trump Derogatory Names.


For several months now, every time I log onto the internet and social media, I’m greeted with very disturbing comments, posts, articles, status updates, posts, meme’s, GIFs, Images, videos etc showing people who are insulting Donald Trump (The President Of the United States), Melania Trump (His beautiful wife) and the rest of his family.


While many people assume that it is okay for them to insult and abuse Donald Trump because he is a Public figure and the President of the United States Of America, I think these people should re-think their ideology, politics, philosophy, stand and views.


There is no way to justify the insults and abuse. There is no way to excuse the derogatory and obscene terms while talking to or about another person. Before being a president, Donald Trump is first and foremost a human being with rights.


Every human being deserves respect, decency and dignity regards of their situation and station in life. It is right to be kind to others. It is good to be compassionate to others. It is acceptable to be loving. We need to be kind. Even to those who are different from us or hold opposing views. You can disagree with someone else without disrespecting and almost undressing them with your words and actions.


Democrats and Liberals have double standards where they wrongly assume it is alright to pick on Donald Trump for his policies, beliefs and leadership style while everyone else should be warm, nice to them and show them respect.


Liberals and Democrats need to realize that they are sowing the wrong seeds when they abuse and insult Donald Trump, Melania Trump and their family. And when it is harvest time, they will be reaping really bad fruit if they don’t stop.


See, for every action there are consequences and according to universal laws of nature, there will be consequences for the insults and abuses that liberals keep pelting Trump with. 


For the sake of this world and humanity, liberals should repent and stop with the insults and abuses. They can disagree with Donald Trump, his policies, his leadership style etc without calling him derogatory terms.


Donald Trump is not only a Human being deserving respect and dignity, he is also a Father, Husband, Father In Law, Uncle, Grandfather and a Friend with a family and millions of Americans and people who love and cherish him. 


He was elected to be president of the United States by millions of Americans in a free and fair election. He just didn’t get to the presidency through a monarchial system of inheritance. I can only pray that liberals and democrats repent and change their ways. That instead of sowing seeds of insults, abuse, hate, darkness, wickedness, they will choose light, goodness, kindness, love, good, decency, respect, integrity and compassion


Words are very powerful. Words have the power of life and death.


A man’s stomach shall be satisfied from the fruit of his mouth;
From the produce of his lips he shall be filled.
21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue,
And those who love it will eat its fruit.

Proverbs 18:20-21

I pray that Jesus who put Donald Trump into this very challenging leadership position will keep giving him the life, health, wisdom, knowledge, understanding, anointing, health, power, grace, fortitude, strength and bravery to keep leading the great nation of the United States Of America. 


Donald Trump, Melania Trump and the rest of your family, I love you and I think you are doing a great and awesome job considering all the dark forces and all the challenges you have to deal with everyday. Jesus and his army have you covered.


Submit yourselves for the Lord’s sake to every human authority: whether to the emperor, as the supreme authority, 14 or to governors, who are sent by him to punish those who do wrong and to commend those who do right. 15 For it is God’s will that by doing good you should silence the ignorant talk of foolish people. 16 Live as free people, but do not use your freedom as a cover-up for evil; live as God’s slaves. 17 Show proper respect to everyone, love the family of believers, fear God, honor the emperor.

1 Peter 2:13-17

It’s easy to fall into the trap of making assumptions. After all, we are human. As we grow up and go through various experiences, we get programmed to take certain things for guaranteed and to make unfounded assumptions.

You Have Invisible Protection And Provisions Against Witches And The Wiles Of The Devil

You Have Invisible Protection And Provisions Against Witches And The Wiles Of The Devil.

Sometimes without many of us realizing it, God has surrounded us with an invisible army that constantly protects and seals us. We might not always see it, but we can be certain that behind the scenes, God is fighting on our behalf and doing great works we might never know about.

There are many mysteries whose meanings we do not know at this time. There are battles in the spiritual that we might not be able to see with our physical eyes. Sometimes our spiritual eyes are closed and we are not able to have a glimpse of what is taking place in the spiritual and the heavenlies.

In the Bible story below, Elisha the Prophet’s servant thought they were surrounded by the enemy and he was worried not knowing what they would do since they seemed out numbered. Well, that is until Elisha prayed and the servant’s eyes were opened to see the fiery army of the Lord protecting them.

“When the servant of the man of God got up and went out early the next morning, an army with horses and chariots had surrounded the city. “Oh no, my lord! What shall we do?” the servant asked.
16 “Don’t be afraid,” the prophet answered. “Those who are with us are more than those who are with them.”
17 And Elisha prayed, “Open his eyes, Lord, so that he may see.” Then the Lord opened the servant’s eyes, and he looked and saw the hills full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.
18 As the enemy came down toward him, Elisha prayed to the Lord, “Strike this army with blindness.” So he struck them with blindness, as Elisha had asked.”

2 Kings 6:15-18

How many times have you felt like you were surrounded by the enemy and you were out numbered?

A few months back, I visited a city in South Africa for a couple of weeks. Unknown to me, the house I was living in was surrounded by witch and wizard covens. Witch doctors in South Africa are known as sangomas. I did not know that the neighborhood was filled with powerful sangomas when I got the house. As the days went on, I noticed that it was customary for the wizards and witches to chant at about 6pm every evening. Hearing these eerie and confusing sounds, I often felt surrounded. I felt alone. Like the enemy was all around me.

One night, there was no sound from the neighboring houses , so I thought it was safe to go out and I decided to get of my house, sit on the porch so that I could watch the stars.  I opened my door and found a large group of witches and wizards outside the compound. They had all sorts of interesting paraphernalia, were smoking and talking in low tones. I was momentarily paralyzed as I watched the scene before me. 

I didn’t know whether to go back inside or to run. So many thoughts started rushing through my mind. Going back inside seemed scary. What if one of the witches had a gun and shot my backside. Running was futile as all escape routes had been blocked.

Out of options, I remembered what the Apostle Paul said in Ephesians:

“Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.” 

Ephesians 6:13

So, I decided to stand outside my door and start praying in the spot I was rooted in. I didn’t pray loudly. Just silent, pleadings to Jesus Christ and his Holy Spirit to shield, protect me and save my life. I kept pleading for the blood of Jesus to cover me so that the enemy would not touch me. As I stood there for about 4 hours, a different witch would walk up to me an instrument, wanting to strike me, then something would happen and it seemed like they would change their mind, walk back to their group, mutter some words to the other members of the group and then walk away. After a few minutes, another witch would also come over and the same thing would happen.

This went on for about four hours until all the witches had walked up to me, instrument in mind, changed their mind and then walked away.

That night, I was physically unarmed and yet I believe that the supernatural clock of the Lord Jesus Christ was covering me and his Holy Spirit was right there beside me protecting me.

Jesus saved my life from the wiles of the enemy and witches. He can do the same for you if you choose to believe in him and his power to save.

If you have never accepted Jesus Christ in your life, I urge you to please invite him in your life. In these dark and wicked days, only Jesus can protect us from the devil. If you are on your own, without his covering, you will be an easy prey for the devil.

Jesus is patiently waiting for you to invite him in. Don’t wait for tomorrow. Tomorrow is not promised to any one. Take this chance and accept him and see how he will change and transform your life.

His word says:

Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me. 21 To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne.
22 “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.”

Revelation 3:20-22

You Would Be Shocked To Read What Has Been Happening To Many People On Facebook

You Would Be Shocked To Read What Has Been Happening To Many People On Facebook.

I received the post and message below in my email correspondence and I was compelled to share it because I believe this is important information and knowledge that needs to be out there.

I have copied and pasted the message, the way it was received.

You would be shocked to read what has been happening to many people on Facebook.

Don’t accept Facebook friends request of people you don’t know. Read this to the end, the world is in another shape now, #SHOCKING EXPOSURE!

Every facebook user needs to read this, especially the Christians.

I came across this on youtube and I think you deserve to know this. A man made very shocking confessions on what has been happening on facebook so far, and these were his words as he was questioned…
“We are out with a mandate to lay hold on the souls of the youth.”

WHO ARE YOU?

 

“We are agents of Lucifer and we are many.”

HOW DO YOU INTEND TO CARRY OUT THIS MISSION?

 

“We sat in our kingdom and watched how children, teenagers and youths got so interested on the social media, they got so carried away by Whatsapp, Bing, Facebook, Twitter and every other media so we invented a plan. We have destroyed many destinies and rendered many useless through social media but our main concentration is on “Facebook.”

WHY DID YOU CHOOSE FACEBOOK?

 

Because we saw that it was more progressive than the others, youths love facebook, they spend much time on it than they do on the others so we placed more demonic agents on facebook and they are at work now even as I speak.”

HOW DO YOU GET THESE PEOPLE?

 

“It’s very easy!(laughs) we send them a friend request, once they accept the request, we write down their names in our book and start manipulating their spirits.”

IN WHAT MANNER DO YOU SEND THE REQUESTS?

 

“We send the requests just like every other facebook request but the spirit of the individual is captured mainly when he/she goes through our profile pictures or photo albums, once they see our pictures, their souls are already undergoing manipulations because those photos are not just any photo, they are ordinary photos with extraordinary spirits.”

WHAT DO THESE PHOTOS LOOK LIKE?

 

“Sometimes, we use the naked picture of a woman as our profile picture in order to attract men but most times, we use these pictures (he brought out some horror pictures of these movies- “The Lord of the rings”, “Vampire attack”, and many others I couldn’t recognize). Most times, we chat with them but when we chat, we don’t send text messages, we send these photos and once they see these photos, if they were vibrant spiritually, academically, morally and in every aspect, they will begin to drop and eventually drop down.”

WHAT DO YOU DO TO THE PEOPLE YOU CAPTURE?

 

“Their lives get contaminated negatively and their minds get polluted with lust, we never let them go, there are more number of spirits on earth than that of humans and each of them is looking for a body to carry them so many spirits can possess one person and before anything happens physically, it is controlled in the spirit. We get them addicted to porn, homosexuality, lesbianism, masturbation, lust and fornication but the main weak points are porn, masturbation and fornication (laughs), they never get out of it no matter how hard they try.”

HOW MANY PEOPLE HAVE YOU GOTTEN?

 

They are too many and majority of them are youth.

GIVE A SPECIFIC NUMBER OF PEOPLE YOU’VE GOTTEN!

 

“Like I said, they are too many but on facebook alone, we have gotten over 2million youths and i believe our agents are still getting more now. We have diverted our attention on the youth and they are falling to this very plan. We send the request, they accept, go through our photos and they get manipulated. Their lives will never remain the same.”
(After this, the spirit speaking through this young man was cast out showing that even he himself was a victim of the same manipulations).

My dear facebook friend, can you count how many friend requests you’ve accepted or how many people you’ve added? Can you recall how many pictures you’ve seen or how many chats you’ve had? Are you among these 2million youths or among the ones that are yet to be gotten?

Before the end of the deliverance, the spirit mentioned that they have access to the spirits of those facebookers who are “empty” and once they get them, they make love to them through dreams and drain their destinies.

I now ask, “Are you empty?” The term “empty” here is a spiritual term.

Do you have a stronger spirit dominating you?

“WE HAVE A GENERATION OF BLEEDING YOUTH”

 

If you are struggling with any of these things, you are a bleeding youth. We have to reach out to as much people as we can especially the youth. Search and join godly & encouraging groups now for more info. We need you to help get youths informed. It is possible before time runs out to liberate our generation by praying & fasting for God’s intervention.

If you have come across this post, don’t hesitate to share it in as many groups & contacts as possible because someone out there could be in serious danger.

Happy Is The One Who Is Always Reverent – Wisdom Gems – Unlearning And Relearning.

In this life, in order to be happy, we need to grow and develop. And to do this, we need to continually unlearn to relearn a new. With cutting edge technologies, recent inventions, novel scientific pronouncements, archeological discoveries and  revelations of old mysteries it helps to keep renewing our knowledge banks.

In the book of Hosea found in the Bible, God says this to his people:

“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.”

Hosea 4:6

Clearly, knowledge is very important and a lack of it will lead to destruction. It is therefore important for us to keeping learning and increasing on our knowledge and wisdom.

We can learn from many avenues.

  • The Bible which is full of wisdom and knowledge and the books of Proverbs, Ecclesiastes and the Psalms are ever green resources.
  • People around us. Friends, family and strangers can teach us about life and add to our knowledge.
  • Newspapers, Magazines, Journals and Books are great sources of knowledge and wisdom.
  • While television, movies and series serve for entertainment, they can also be wonderful sources of wisdom and knowledge.

In this ultramodern and contemporary age that we find ourselves, social media has become a leading tool in providing knowledge and wisdom. Social media influence is very powerful and cannot be ignored.

I decided to explore twitter to find some great gems of wisdom and knowledge from the tweets people are sharing.

The New World Order – Is Facebook Part Of The Plot – Harbingers Of The End Times

The New World Order - Is Facebook Part Of The Plot - Harbingers Of The End Times Blog Post Banner Image

The New World Order – Is Facebook Part Of The Plot – Harbingers Of The End Times.

With Mark Zuckerberg in the United States Senate answering questions about his brilliant invention known as, Facebook some thoughts come to mind.
 
Facebook has changed World History and life as we know it. Facebook is very powerful and the tentacles of its influence and dominance far-reaching and wide.
 
With about 2 billion users of the about 7 billion people in the world, (Approximately 30% of the world population) Facebook and it’s influence can’t be ignored.
While considering these numbers, I’m reminded of Alexander the Great. He was the King of the ancient Greek Kingdom of Macedon and a Member of the Argead Dynasty who went out to conquer vast lands and kingdoms.
With the way Facebook is growing and increasing, I’m pushed to feel like they are on the same path as Alexander in seeking to conquer the world.
Further meditation on these in addition to other facts led me to consider the role of Facebook in the New World Order and the End Times.

A few months back, I  listened to a very powerful sermon by Pastor Charles Dawson titled, “10 Ways We’re Being Tracked, Traced & Data Based.” He preached this sermon a few years back. Yet the relevance of his teachings with the happenings in the world today is quite startling.

While some of the events and forces playing out in the world maybe disturbing, it gives me assurance that my Lord and savior Jesus Christ is coming back. Consequently, the hope I have that Jesus will be coming for his Church very soon makes every suffering and uncertainty in this world worth enduring.

The Prophet Daniel said these words many decades ago. When he said these words, many of the innovations and inventions we enjoy today were not yet created but it’s amazing just how much it all correlates with current happenings.

And many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, Some to everlasting life, some to shame and everlasting contempt. 3 Those who are wise shall shine Like the brightness of the firmament, And those who turn many to righteousness Like the stars forever and ever. 4 “But you, Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book until the time of the end; many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase.”
 

Daniel 12:2-4

Indeed we are living in, “The Time of the End” and Modern Age where knowledge keeps increasing at an alarming rate.

The technological advances we keep witnessing are mind-blowing.
 
The ingenuousness of the Human mind is growing with every invention and innovation.

 

  • As one watches world events,  some days it feels like the Bible story of Human beings trying to build the Tower of Babel to reach the Heavens. [Genesis 11: 1-10]

 

  • American phenomenon like Black Friday have spread to other Nations around the World where people never really bothered about such days.

 

  • British Prince Harry decided to get a Wife from America. A beautiful woman, Meghan Markel who is also part Black breaking common British tradition.
 
  • Various couples meet on Facebook, Twitter, and other Social sites and go ahead to get married and start families. 
  • You can call anyone in the world with an internet connection and a Facebook account at anytime free of charge.

 

  • People are pushing for a new religion called Chrislam which is supposed to merge and unite Christians and Moslems worldwide and bring them together as one.

 

  • Amazon is slowly by surely extending its services to reach every country in the world.

 

  • You can send funds in a flash with Western Union, World Remit, Google to many countries in the world.
In view of these few observations, I collected a number of articles that give a deeper understanding of the role of Facebook in the New World Order.
 

Which New World Order is already here for those who think it’s something yet to happen.

1. “Facebook and the Coming New World Order.
 
2. “New father Mark Zuckerberg: Facebook leading towards a New World Order.
 
3. “Facebook’s Zuckerberg Lobbies for New World Order.
 
4. “Facebook changes mission statement to ‘bring the world closer together’.”
 
5. “Facebook and the New world order.
 
6. “Time’s up for the Ticker? Facebook appears to axe feed for tracking your friends’ activity.”
 
7. “Silicon Valley In 2016: A New World Order Begins To Arise.”
 
8. “Behind Facebook—A New World Order Agenda?”
 
9. “Facebook Founder calls for creation of New World Order Global Superstructure to control Humanity.”

Followers Of Jesus Being Persecuted On Social Media Like Facebook And Twitter – Harbingers Of The End Times

Followers Of Jesus Being Persecuted On Social Media Like Facebook & Twitter - Harbingers Of The End Times

Followers Of Jesus Being Persecuted On Social Media Like Facebook And Twitter – Harbingers Of The End Times.

Can sharing your Christian Faith on Social Media Like Facebook and Twitter Get You Harassed and persecuted?

The Answer is a resounding YES! And it’s even harder to imagine that this is happening in America and not some Middle East Muslim nation.

Everyday our world grows darker and very interesting things keep happening. As many Christians wake up from slumber, the number of Non-believers and Atheists also grows in strength.

 

The first time I watched God is Not Dead 1, I silently wondered whether the situation depicted in the Movie, with Education systems trying to shut Christians up was truly as dire as predicted.

And when God is Not Dead 2 was released with parts of the story line based on how Atheists were using the Law and Judicial systems to overpower Christianity, a small part of me still wanted to keep believe that our world wasn’t growing more wicked.

 

However reading stories where Atheists groups like the Wisconsin-based Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) group are writing inflammatory letters to Leaders, In this case the Governor Asa Hutchinson of Arkansas being targeted and his religious activities being policed because he likes to post Bible based Scripture on his Facebook and Twitter makes me realize just how pressing the situation is.

I still have no idea how this story ties in with the recently repealed Net Neutrality Regulations by The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) but I’m certain there is a connection and I’m just watching and waiting to see what that connection will be.

These Atheist Groups seem to have conveniently forgotten that President Abraham Lincoln called for a National Fast Day (A fast is  a religious activity) in 1863 and is quoted saying:

It is the duty of nations as well as of men to own their dependence upon the overruling power of God, to confess their sins and transgressions in humble sorrow, yet with assured hope that genuine repentance will lead to mercy and pardon; and to recognize the sublime truth, announced in the Holy Scriptures and proven by all history, that those nations only are blessed whose God is the Lord,

It seems like the devil is really scared that his time is up and so he is seriously charging at believers and fighting the body of Christ. This simply means that we have to pray even harder and grow closer to the Lord. Apostle Peter cautions us saying:

“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. 9 Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world.
1 Peter 5:8-9

I also found it quite interesting that the Atheist Attorney Andrew Seidel who wrote the Letter used Bible Scripture to try to get his point across.

“If the law and your oath to uphold the Constitution are not sufficient to convince you to stop, perhaps you might consider reading Matthew 6:5-6, in which Jesus condemns public prayer as hypocrisy in his Sermon on the Mount,” 
Andrew Seidel

This scenario reminds me of the Devil using Scripture to try and Tempt Jesus in the desert.

5 Then the devil took Him up into the holy city, set Him on the pinnacle of the temple, 6 and said to Him, “If You are the Son of God, throw Yourself down. For it is written: He shall give His angels charge over you,’ and, In their hands they shall bear you up,
Lest you dash your foot against a stone.’ ”
7 Jesus said to him, “It is written again, You shall not tempt the Lord your God.’ ”
Matthew 4:5-7

I must add that I’m motivated by Governor Asa, and his posting of Bible scripture on social Media. I will certainly be posting more Bible verses myself.

There is indeed power in the Word of God. For those facing persecution or are being targeted please don’t give up sharing the word of God.  Let’s keep pushing the word of God out there. The devil can be overcome.

The Bible clearly says this:

Then I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, “Now salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren, who accused them before our God day and night, has been cast down. 11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death.
Revelation 12:10-11

My question to you as a believer is: What are you using your social media spaces for? If Atheists and other non-believers looked at your social media accounts like Facebook or Twitter, would you get a warning letter for your beliefs in Jesus’s Christ?
