God told Hezekiah to get his house in order in preparation for his death. If God thought it necessary to tell King Hezekiah to get his house in order, what is God telling his people today? I believe the Lord is saying its time to get your house in order. The pet sin and the distractions are going to be lethal in this hour. God is going to be looking for faith and if it is not found, the Lord will pass you by. When God touches the earth the blessed are the ones that are ready. Not moving around unprepared and a dangerous tempo.
Satan is looking for weak links to pry apart and destroy homes with the title Christian on it. He is looking to cause division and separation among peoples that should be an agreement. He is looking to ruin lives through deception, murder and suicide. We have seen a good share of this in 2017 and if the Lord tarries, which I believe he will, 2018 will be a year for the “ship” to increase.
Is your finances in order? Are you wasting resources on things that do not have real value. Are you taking care of the things that are necessary? Are you being like the wise ant who prepared for the winter? Are you training your children in the admonition of the Lord? A bully is only as strong as the weak untrained children around them. If I asked your children who is their parents God would they say Jesus or their job, or money? Its time to get your house in order. The storm is here, but the waves are going to rise.
The Bible is clear concerning the condition of mankind and the journey that all citizens of earth will take, whether saved or unsaved and it is this. Man that is born of a woman is of few days and full of trouble (Job 14:1). Never gloss over the fact that as a citizen of earth your days will be FULL with trouble. Let that settle in your mind. Don’t expend energy on it. Don’t fight it. It is not up for debate. Your life WILL be FULL of trouble. The quicker you agree with this statement the easier your journey on earth will be. You add to the trouble by resisting the truth. Now once you have that settled, your expectation will be true and you open the door for joy to enter your life.
Now as a believer in Jesus Christ, the trouble has an expiration date. It ends in paradise. Now before you get to paradise, your mind must be on Jesus. Listen to Luke 10:40-41 “But Martha was distracted by all the preparations to be made. She came to Jesus and said, “Lord, do You not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Tell her to help me!” “Martha, Martha, the Lord replied, “you are worried and upset about many things. But only ONE thing is necessary. Mary has chosen the good portion, and it will not be taken away from her.” Martha was depressed. Why? She made mountains out of ant hill and she alone had a burden placed on her back that she alone had to carry. A burden SHE placed on herself. Jesus did not. Mary did not. The disciples did not. Martha put the shackles on and hooked herself up. She connected herself to a weight that Mary did not have. Why? Mary understood that only ONE thing matters. Her relationship with Jesus. When other things crowd the ONE thing that matters, you have a a burden of idolatry that you alone must cast off. No one else can do it. Mary did not have an issue, Martha did. So its Martha’s responsibility to take the yoke off her neck and make Jesus the ONE thing that matters.
People were first called Christians in Antioch according to Acts 11:26. The original Christians were followers of the doctrine of Jesus Christ. A doctrine that did not have any objects or imagine worship. Jesus said, in John 4:23 “that true worshipers will worship the Father in the Spirit and in truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks.” Image worship comes from Satan. Antichrist doctrine is rooted in images because it takes your eyes off of the real Jesus and places them on things attached to the earth, when Paul tells us to set our affections on things above. Things you can’t see. So what image can be drawn? All such image worship is Satanic.
Don’t be surprised when you see a so-called Christian church fall, when you look around the church and all you see is image worship. Image worship is what the people of Israel wanted to do, right after Moses left to speak with God on the mountain. People love their worship of images and they will perish with them, just like the Israelites did in the wilderness.
Disconnect yourself from image worshipers and worship God the way he wants and then nothing can ride you. China wants to replace so-called Christian images with an image of a communist President. Is that what the world should see as Christian? Or is this communist President deceived into believing Christianity is white and American and that is his real issue? People may be blind about the knowledge of God, but when your heart is filled with Jesus, your conversation will immediately inform people of who you are. Your conversation forms your conduct and reveals your heart. The disciples did not walk around with pictures of Jesus, when they healed the sick, cast out demons, fed the poor, or caused blind eyes to open. When you have no power, you have to use demonic images. Just be about the raw word of God and God’s Spirit will be revealed to the lost. You already know that. I am speaking to the so-called Christians out there. I see you. Better repent of adding to the Bible or else deal with God’s judgement without remedy.
The images before you are demonic. I spoke with the evil spirit called the spirit of antichrist and he told me the picture you see here is a picture of him. I do not believe his true form is the picture before you, however, he appears to many in this form for the deception to work. In either case this is not Christ. If you are wearing t-shirts with this image or have this image in your home you have the spirit of antichrist there. God has been very clear on how we are to worship and serve him. “But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him” (John 4:23).
If you have these images in your house you have allowed demons to enter your home. You have given them a license. If you find your prayers are without power it may be time to clean the house.
do not become corrupt and make for yourselves an idol, an image of any shape, whether formed like a man or a woman, – Deuteronomy 4:16
You must not make for yourself an idol of any kind, or an image of anything in the heavens or on the earth or in the sea (Deuteronomy 5:8).
“You must not make for yourself an idol of any kind or an image of anything in the heavens or on the earth or in the sea. You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, (Exodus 20:4-5).
Do not make idols or set up an image or a sacred stone for yourselves, and do not place a carved stone in your land to bow down before it. I am the LORD your God (Leviticus 26:1).
“Do not think that I came to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I did not come to abolish but to fulfill. “For truly I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not the smallest letter or stroke shall pass from the Law until all is accomplished (Matthew 5:17-18).
It is easier for heaven and earth to disappear than for the least stroke of a pen to drop out of the Law (Luke 16:17).
You have been warned. Those with ears to hear will hear and be set free.
Worship God in spirit and in truth.
Raising children is no easy task and when you add raising them to love God and their neighbor as themselves it increases the difficulty 100 fold. Satan will not make this easy. He will take advantage of any hole, ledge, whatever he can to steal, kill, and destroy. He already has a preexisting advantage. Your children will not require you to teach them evil. Just let them raise themselves and you will raise a devil. We are born to die. The penalty of Adam’s sin shapes them. Interwoven within their DNA is condemnation. They have the ability to die the moment they are born, before they commit a sin. The curse is already on them.
Jesus, has instructed you as the parents to raise them in the admission of the Lord. Talk about Jesus you sit at home and when you are driving in the car, when you wake up and when you lie down. Your children must know that Jesus is your God. A God you discuss all the time. Taking every opportunity, like Satan will, to teach your children how to depend upon God. Have them seek the Lord early. When they are afraid, have them seek Jesus for comfort. Remember, you will not always be around and they will need to hear from God at school.
Tell your children that your decisions are led by God’s Spirit and you inquire of the Lord before making decisions. Not just prayer before meals, but for ALL decision you acknowledge the Lord. He is your wisdom, your strength, and your guide throughout the darkness that resides on earth. Let them hear you call out their name in prayer. Teach them the value of knowing Jesus. Instruct them on the issues that others face because of sin and how destructive it is.
Be honest about the difficulty of living holy. Share with them the grace of God and encourage them to run to Jesus after they fall. Never sit to long outside of God’s presence, repent, get back inside the race toward righteous living. God is able to use you to accomplish great things for the kingdom of God. He grants your desires as you delight in Him. He loves His children. He corrects, but is merciful.
How long do you train your children? Until they are no longer under your roof. If you quit early, they will suffer for it and so will you. The eighteen or 25 years will be long. Be faithful to God and you will reap the reward for your labor. You will have joy in your latter years, when others will only weep. Your hard work will pay dividends that you will not be able to keep up with and the rewards in heaven that you will receive, will be astounding. Its possible to raise Christian children, even in this evil, evil, world we live in. It will draw blood from you, but it will be super, super, worth it. It is your obligation as parents to raise them and not Satan. It is God’s command, so that blessings flow into your life like rain.
