Living in Eternity while Anchored in Time

Every person experiencing life on Planet Earth should look upon their terrestrial sojourn as but a brief stopover. That stopover can last for about 70 years. Sadly, for many, the stopover does not last long at all. What kind of a stopover are we talking about? It is a stopover in a place called time.

If it is a stopover, then the journey must have commenced elsewhere for it to be a stopover. And if it is a stopover, then it must continue in the same place or realm where it started.

 Everyone’s journey started in eternity – the realm of no time, the realm where God resides. We existed within the Spirit of the Almighty Creator of the entire universe, including Planet Earth, before we were given a passage to earth. “Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee.” (Jer. 1:5)

Our appointed time for the release of our infant spirits into physical bodies for the beginning of our stopover in time was determined by God. To live in time required the addition (covering) of flesh and bone. Speaking of his spirit, Job said, “Thou hast clothed me with skin and flesh, and hast fenced me with bones and sinews.” (Job 10:11)

During our stopover the combination of our THOUGHTS, WORDS and ACTIONS become the determining factor as to the direction we take upon re-entry into the realm of no time, the spiritual realm. That spiritual realm is split into the spiritual realm of life and the spiritual realm of death. The latter does not put an end to one’s existence and consciousness as a living entity. The term ‘death’ is merely a description denoting a place of condemnation for eternity in the spiritual realm.

Should our THOUGHTS, WORDS and ACTIONS match the THOUGHTS, WORDS and ACTIONS of Jesus Christ as a result of our submission to and faith in him because of His death and resurrection for the redemption of the human race, then the stopover in time takes on a whole new meaning. In fact, it is no longer a stopover for those of the Christian faith, but rather an early move to the spiritual realm while anchored in time. This means that we become resident in two places at the same time – we are living in eternity while anchored in time.

But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us TOGETHER with Christ (by grace ye are saved), and has raised us up TOGETHER, and made us sit TOGETHER in heavenly places in Christ Jesus.” (Eph 4: 2-6)

If we are spiritually seated in heavenly places together with Christ, even while we are physically present on earth, then our conduct, wherever we find ourselves, should be as if we are conducting ourselves right before the sight and hearing of Jesus. “For our conversation is in heaven”. (Phil. 3:20). In other words, when you speak to anyone – whether it is a fellow student, a work colleague or your spouse – you should converse with them as if you are seated right there in that heavenly place, with Jesus overhearing your every word. We should live our lives in constant awareness of this.

This means that our lives are lived both in heaven and on earth at the same time. Therefore, whatever we say is heard, simultaneously, in heaven, between heaven and earth, and on earth.

Did you know that you became one spirit with Jesus and that is why you are able to be there, in the heavenly realm, with him? “But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit.” (1Cor. 6:17)

Our citizenship is in Heaven, but we have a job to do on earth. We are the Body of Christ, which is in Heaven and on earth. We are in SPIRITUAL UNION with Christ for as long as we remain in our physical bodies on earth. Our empowerment comes through the Holy Spirit, Who has placed us in the Kingdom of God. And that Kingdom is within us. This is how we can be both in Heaven and on earth at the same time. We are already seated in Heaven where Christ is and Christ is wherever we are on earth.

Clearly, we are already living in eternity while anchored in time. And the only reason for us being anchored in time is so that we can carry out the commission given to us by Him as per Mark 16:15-20. In reality, we are carrying out our commission from our ‘Head Office’ in Heaven. There is room in the Kingdom for everyone, but not everyone wants to return to their place of origin.

Jesus said, “All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore,” (Mt 28:18,19).

What is the absolute staggering meaning of this statement by the Lord of Lords, the King of Kings? It means that we who are already living in eternity while anchored in time have that same power and authority, “therefore” we are to ”Go” knowing that Christ in us is the Head and we are the Body. Our body is His body – our hands are His hands.

And they went forth, and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen.” (Mark 16:20)

Remember, we are seated “TOGETHER in heavenly places in Christ Jesus” and we are anchored in this place of time for the purpose of “the Lord working with them.” The “them” is ‘us’.

Let’s look at the full picture.

And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.
He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.
And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;
They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover
.” (Mark 16:15-18)

If we do not “Go” and actually do what is commanded as per the abovementioned, then the Lord cannot work with us and through us – then those who are currently on a stopover and on their way to a place of spiritual damnation once their stopover comes to an end will have us to blame for their eternal plight.

What then would be the point of us living in eternity while anchored in time? If we do not believe Jesus’ command to us to be possible, then how can we believe anything the Bible has to say? Could there be a reason for us to be doubtful? Yes, it could be one of two reasons or both. The first one is pride and the second one is because our THOUGHTS, WORDS and ACTIONS are no different than that of those still on an ordinary stopover in time.

We need to renew our minds to the truth and be worthy of both our calling and our salvation. “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” (Rom. 12:2)

Those who are on a stopover in time are in need of Good News. The Good News can only come from those who are living in eternity while anchored in time.

Nancy Pelosi: The Hallowed Chambers of Capital Hill

In her anti-Trump tirade after the storming of the Capital by protesting Americans, Nancy Pelosi, House Speaker and 3rd in line for the Presidency, referred to the halls of the Capital as hallowed and sacred. Both words have the same meaning; holy, blessed, consecrated, revered, sanctified, sacrosanct, deified.

Now why would she consider the chambers to be ‘holy’ ground?

Secondly, Pelosi, Biden and other Democrats referred to the protestors as insurrectionists, domestic terrorists, the scum of society, hooligans, rightist mobs, etc.

Further, there’s more than enough proof that the American govt under the Obama/Biden administration fomented the Arab Spring that started in 2011 and then stood back in support of the uprising by citizens of the countries involved. Obama did not label the protestors of those Arab countries as insurrectionists, domestic terrorists, etc.

For the shocking, comprehensive truth as to why Nancy Pelosi considers the Capital to be “hallowed’ and why the U.S. under the Obama administration orchestrated the Arab Spring, please go to the American War Machine.

Yes, we do have it all wrong

I recently published an article, End-time events – perhaps we’ve got it all wrong’ in which I aired my doubts about the veracity of certain beliefs within the Christian world. After further reflection and study immediately after publishing the above article, I became even more convinced that we have a lot more wrong about these beliefs, hence this article.

For a very long time the Christian world has been caught up in unbiblical doctrines and teachings started by deluded individuals (such as John Nelson Darby and others) resulting in a score of modern day expositors of the Word coming up with the most convoluted array of interpretations of end time prophecies all based on the teachings of the Darby crowd.

Slowly but surely, many are beginning to come to their senses, realising that much of the authoritative claims of the likes of John Darby, as well as the deceptive campaigns of those in charge at the Vatican, were and still are the work of the invisible forces of darkness for the purpose of misleading those of the Christian faith. These deceptions have caused overconfidence and complacency in Christendom so that when the unexpected happens they would find that they have no oil in their lamps.

It is not with disregard for the thousands who have lost loved ones that I say that the Covid-19 pandemic has come to our rescue. The world is now in a chaotic, despondent recess. The focus is no longer on the pleasures of this world – except for those making up the elite rich with their covert operations through the banking cartels and secret societies, who are further benefitting from the plight of the ordinary citizen. The ordinary looks to the front, to the back, to the left and to the right, but see no help coming from those directions. Now the only remaining direction is up. And that’s exactly what this world-wide plague is all about. Like never before, people are beginning to look up, now alerted to the ‘possibility’ of the Truth.

The world has been silenced by all the noise of hardship, despair and anxiety. I hope I’m wrong, but I seem to be hearing another silence – a real silence – in the direction of ‘up’. I suspect that right now there is calm before the storm of God’s judgement upon a sick (not a Covid-19 pun) world. This has no reference to Rev. 8:1.

Now just exactly why is there a mindset of overconfidence and complacency within the Christian ranks? There are those of the smug pre-tribulation rapture (we’re- outta-here) belief that are gleefully awaiting the moment despite the fact that Jesus explicitly stated over and over that it would only happen “at the last day”. They base their belief on Daniel 9 and the construed false teachings of a 7-year tribulation period together with further speculative assumptions to fit in with this teaching. Please see The Prophecy of Daniel 9:27 – Christ or the Antichrist?

Then there are those – including some of the above – that have been taught to believe that as soon as specific signs begin to be evident in the world then – and only then – should they start fooling God with good behaviour in expectation of escaping the tribulation to come. One of those signs is founded on the words of Paul in 2 Thes.2:3,2 concerning the timing of the coming of Christ for the saints. In this regard please see WHAT TEMPLE IS THIS?

Some of the other signs, over which much has been written are believed to cover the role of Israel in the last days; World War 111 concentrated in the Middle East; the establishment of a global antichrist government; the involvement of the Roman Catholic Church to orchestrate this transition; America’s cooperation (by the incoming Joe Biden administration) with an antichrist movement; the United Nations spearheading this development and the compulsory mark of the beast for the purpose of conducting any form buying and selling. For a comprehensive, compelling insight into these false end time beliefs please see END TIMES AND ISRAEL.  

All of the above supposedly forms part of the tribulation period from which many professing Christians believe they will be rescued. The reality is, most of these things have long since been fulfilled and what lies ahead is only the sudden event of the Lord’s final judgment during all the last-minute scurrying by the human race, both good and evil. This is when, “(the Lord Jesus) In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power;” (2Thess.1:8,9)

It is for this reason that we have to be in a constant “watch” mode – meaning, that in the horrendous turmoil sweeping the world in these last days our faith should be steadfast. The failure of a pre-tribulation rapture must not distract us to the point of unbelief and fear. “Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.” (Mt 25:13)

The evil, dark forces of power that are at work right now fomenting violent unrest, war, terrorism, death and destruction are planning to offer the world peace and security by means of the formation of a New World Order with promises of utopian bliss for all. This, of course, is nothing more than a decoy in an attempt to disorientate the Body of Christ to the point of fear and unbelief in the promises of God. The nations of the world will be subdued by the prospect of the new order of events to come. A sense of peace and security will prevail even before it becomes a reality. And then, “For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.” (1Thess. 5:3)

 Indeed, the year 2020 has delivered 20/20 vision. We should all see clearly now.

And what we should also see is further affirmation by Jesus concerning the “last day” resurrection of the saints who “are alive and remain” at the conclusion of judgement. That affirmation reads, “But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.” (Matt.24:13).

Lastly, after the initial shock, it would appear that the world paid little attention to the Covid plague by returning to their entertainment and sporting pleasures in the midst thereof, regarding the plague as nuisance value and standing in the way of their worldly pleasures. Now a second strain, more devastating than the first, is causing a runaway second wave world-wide.

That heavenly silence is becoming a deafening noise.

The Two Sources of Motivation for Humanity

Whoever reads this article from top to bottom should know exactly where they stand in life. It then purely becomes a matter of choice.

So many people misunderstand the tenor (gist, meaning) of the need for salvation from their fallen state of existence and, therefore, continue in a mode of indifference to something that is of crucial importance. This article serves to progressively break down such a wall of resistance by offering a clear but concise explanation of the underlying principle that necessitates our deliverance from the mess we all find ourselves in.  

Let’s begin by pointing out that the design for our behavioural pattern was ‘locked and loaded’ shortly after man was introduced to Planet Earth. This behavioural pattern had two sources of motivation.

For a brief period before the single (first) inspirational source for man’s behaviour was split into a choice between two sources of motivation, he was totally content with the knowledge of the beauty of only the original source of motivation. We all know (or should know) what happened in the Garden of Eden.

When the second source was added man suddenly possessed two conflicting sources on which to base his word and deed. In other words, he became aware that he possessed the right of choice between the two. However, the incursion of the second source obliterated the singleness of purity embedded in the original source. He now had the knowledge of both good and evil and he became torn between the two.

While he possessed only the original source of knowledge he had the right to a life of happiness and bliss on an eternal scale, never having to second guess the reason for his words and actions. But now the benefits of the single source of knowledge received the death knell, in that he was declared spiritually dead by the One who created him. This meant that although he retained the Breath of Life that enabled him to remain physically alive, his hope of eternal bliss was exchanged for eternal condemnation once his physical existence on earth reached an end.

Consequently, man’s knowledge of both good and evil compelled him to deliberate between the attributes of the two sources in the course of executing every facet of his daily life. Deep in his heart he desired the good in line with what he had in the beginning, but his nature leaned towards the latter source of motivation. He could not help it, for now he had the nature of sin which he would pass on to all of his offspring.

Had he not capitulated to sin he would have grown in stature, showing the fruit of the Spirit of his Maker, which is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness and restraint. (Gal. 5:23). The fact is, he would have been ignorant of anything that would oppose the built-in nature of his existence.

But the second source of motivation was an evil intervention that gave birth to works that belonged to the flesh, namely, adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, envyings, murders, drunkenness, revelry, and such like. (Gal. 5:19-22). These are all the offshoots of pride and importance of self.

This then, is the plight of the human race today. It has to pay the penalty for its transgression and the resultant nature of sin. That penalty is eternal condemnation in the place known as the lake of fire. It has to be understood that man is dead while he lives and that this condition continues after he departs from his external body of clay.

Can man be redeemed from his spiritually-dead condition and, thus, escape the confinement lying in wait for him? Yes, he can, but only God can redeem him. And He did. God took on the form of man and became, Emmanuel, meaning, God with us. The name, Jesus, was given to Him. This Jesus – God in the flesh – was born without sin and he remained without sin. But, He was to become sin for us so that He may put sin to death for us – and that we may be born again, given a second chance to live as He intended us to live.

 In effect, Jesus was laden with our sinful nature and paid the penalty on our behalf so that we may be set free from our captivity to the condemnation under which we lived in our spiritually-dead condition. “There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.” (Romans 8:1)

It was not a matter of Jesus dying for all the petty little sins and/or big sins of man that he commits every day. He died for the very nature of sin in man causing all those sins. The truth is, Jesus did away with sin once and for all, but it remains in force for all who do not yet believe. Redemption, therefore, only comes for every individual once he seeks forgiveness for his spiritually-dead condition so that he may be redeemed and be given a new life, meaning, he needs to be born again.  “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.” (2Cor. 5:17)

THE FIRST DEADLINE
The following needs to be made very clear. God works to two deadlines for the continuation of every individual’s life on earth. For all those that are spiritually dead the first deadline is physical death. Should such an unredeemed person die physically, whether by accident or natural causes, there is no recourse.  Such a person will have lost all hope. Of course, this first deadline holds no fear for those who are already redeemed and born again.

THE SECOND DEADLINE
The second deadline is the end of the timeline for man’s continued existence on earth, which is virtually upon us. At the end of this timeline God’s final judgment will fall upon the human race. “But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.” (2Peter 3:7)

So, anyone who is alive right now and manages to remain alive is very likely to experience the end of the second deadline. That’s how close we are to that day. It will come suddenly, without further warning. We’ve already had enough warning and we can clearly see that the world we live in right now spells, ‘The End’. 2Thess.1:8 is about to become a reality. “In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ:”

As with the first deadline, the second deadline also holds no fear for those who currently enjoy the redeemed state. For them a ‘lift off’ is the final move as per 1Thess. 4:15-18. “For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep.

For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:

Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

Wherefore comfort one another with these words.”

Right now, the only formula for redemption is repentance. “The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.” (2Peter 3:9)

THE ROAD TO REDEMPTION
The following prayer would be an act of repentance.

“Dear God, I now realise that I am a sinner in need of forgiveness and redemption. I believe that Jesus died in my place to pay the penalty for my sin nature and that He was resurrected from the dead so that I may live for eternity, Jesus, please come in to my heart and life and be my Lord and Saviour. Please guide me and grant me wisdom each and every day for the rest of my life on earth. Amen.”

So, the bottom line is this: There is a real purpose for our lives and we should enjoy every moment of our existence provided we do so in redemption mode. Apart from good health, this mode comes with many other benefits. Here’s proof from the mouth of our Lord and Saviour. “If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, you shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.” (John 15:7)

What is redemption mode? Once a heartfelt prayer of repentance is said the redemption mode sets in automatically, meaning, we are reconciled to God and have 24/7 access to His throne to converse freely with Him concerning every aspect (even the least little thing) of our new lives through the boldness and confidence of the faith of Jesus Christ that we now possess. In effect, living in redemptive mode means nothing becomes impossible for us with God. “With men it is impossible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible.” (Mark 10:27)

YOUR VERY OWN PERSONAL ARMY
And how about your own personal army to protect you and to remove any unwanted obstacle standing in your way? This covers sicknesses and diseases, unforeseen threats and concerning promotion in your workplace.  “Because you have made the LORD, which is your refuge, even the most High, your habitation; there shall no evil befall you, neither shall any plague come near your dwelling. For he shall give his angels charge over you, to keep you in all your ways.” (Ps 91:9-11)

To think that while you are washing dishes in your kitchen those angels are delighted with your happy face. While you are driving your car those angels can see far ahead of you and take action to avert any mishap. And your boss does not know why he suddenly feels that he should give you a substantial raise. Maybe so that you can afford to buy a dishwasher?

It’s time to retake your Power and Authority

Our clear understanding of what lies behind the generation of our thoughts and words is of vital importance. Only once this is fully grasped will we be able to recognise the problem and set ourselves free from the things that bind us in life, whether in our personal relationships or at the workplace – and including the condition of our health.

I want to make this so clear that it would be impossible not to understand it. And if it is suddenly understood by anyone reading this message they would probably run out into the street and start dancing and singing in the rain, hail or sunshine regardless of what the neighbours think. Get ready to open your front door. You’re about to be unleashed.

When it comes to the reality of life most people go no further than simply considering themselves to be a member of something called the human race living on a planet located in this part of the universe. Perhaps you consider yourself to be a cut above the rest because of your education and achievements in life. Regardless of the opinion you might have of yourself, let’s look at what makes you and everyone else a member of the human race.

Did you know that no human inhabitant of this planet has any control over his own life unless he has knowledge of the realities that govern this world? The tragedies and disasters in this world are testaments to the fact that most people are oblivious to the truth.

Here is the reality. Our physical world – and every human being in it – is totally under the control of unseen spiritual forces, both that of Darkness and that of Light. Both of these forces have been and still are determining the circumstances of your life and your consummate fate lies in their hands. However, you can actually manipulate either of these forces to your advantage. Let me rephrase that. You can overthrow the power of the forces of Darkness, for they have been your enemy number one, and you can influence the power of the forces of Light, for they can’t wait to be of service to you. It is a matter of knowing how it works. (If you stop reading now you’ll never do that dance.)

Before you can even think of turning your attention to these spiritual forces you need to learn something about your own make-up as a human being. What you need to know and understand is that you are no less spiritual than these invisible forces. A major difference between you and them is that you wear a coat of flesh and bone. In other words, the spiritual you has a physical body through which the spiritual you finds animation. This is what makes you a human being. The spiritual forces of Light and Darkness also have bodies – spiritual bodies that cannot be seen by the human race. You were designed and created to make your presence felt in this terrestrial realm while they were designed and created to make their presence felt in the spiritual world within the celestial realm. However, the earth is a physical sphere within that celestial realm and, therefore, poses no obstacle to them. The physical realm is a product of the spiritual dimension and these spiritual forces are able to move right through anything that is physical. With our physical bodies removed we can do the same, but we were not designed to live outside of our physical bodies, for we are a special creation and we will not be able to operate outside of that limitation for that reason.

The fact that we are spirit beings first is clearly depicted in 2Cor. 5:10. Note in this verse that “every one” makes reference to a living being inside of a physical body, the “every one” is the spirit of a person. “For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.”

Spiritual interaction
It is of crucial importance to grab a hold of what comes next. We, and those forces, are essentially spiritual beings and as such we can communicate with each other. The difference is that they can see us but we cannot see them. We are ‘locked’ inside physical bodies and we rely upon our physical senses to ‘feed’ our spirit with earthbound experiences. They see and hear us clearly and we hear their words as if they were our very own thoughts. Our knowledge of the difference between good and evil comes into play when we decide whether or not to speak out or act out those thoughts that were ‘planted’ in our spiritual minds that appear to be our own. We often hear of criminals testifying in court that they heard voices instructing them to perform heinous acts against their victims. The courts regard such criminals to be mentally unstable and have them psychiatrically evaluated, supposedly to get to the root of the problem.

Think of your own life and all the thoughts that run through your mind on a daily basis. Your thoughts are definitely not always your own and you cannot argue that your words and actions (in responding to those thoughts) have many a time caused you to make mistakes of a wicked kind. Perhaps you have judged others, making derogatory statements about them or you have taken something that does not belong to you, such as stationery items from your workplace. Every single thing you say or do is preceded by a thought on the matter. Even prideful behaviour is a thought-provoked display of self-importance or an expression of superiority over the intellectual level of others.

Expressions of resentment, rebellion, sarcasm, discontent, anger, malice, vindictiveness, unbelief, jealousy and vengeance – accompanied by actions and body language to support such outbursts, are clear indications of demonic mind control. Such demon-invoked emotions are designed to destroy lives and relationships.

Let me make this a stand-alone paragraph to elucidate what I’ve covered in the previous paragraph concerning our thoughts. Our thoughts are unspoken words and until we speak them they remain just thoughts. Once those thoughts are spoken they become creative words laden with power with which to bring about the desired effect, which may be to build up or to break down. Our thoughts are not conjured up by our brain. It is in our spirit where those thoughts rise up as deliberated by the mind of our own spirit or instilled by the enemy. The human brain is used to channel the words of the spirit to the outside world and it is the spirit that empowers the functioning of the brain. In other words, without our spirit the brain would be dead. Our physical brain is merely the spirit-empowered organ by means of which our spirit can generate utterance to our spiritual thoughts. The brain is always on standby to receive the ‘order’ to activate the vocal cords to form and give sound to the words coming through from the spirit. Our tongue is the final instrument of sound and it is this organ that determines the outcome. “Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.” (Prov. 18:21)

It should be understood that the life of man – his consciousness and individuality as a living entity – is his spirit. Man’s physical body merely forms the covering for the real life within. Speaking of man as a whole, God stated in Genesis of the man He created that he “also is flesh”. (Gen.6:3). This certainly makes it clear that man is first and foremost a spirit, but he is also flesh. The flesh part of man, the physical house, performs the outward expression of the inner man, the spirit. “For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.” (James 2:26) 

Let me say at this point that the human race has been so conditioned by ‘alien’ incursions into our thought life that they don’t even need to keep it up on a continuous basis. We tend to think as we have been trained to think and it now forms part of our very own nature. Anger, bitterness, hatred, slander and unforgiveness are some of the emotional garbage stored up in our spiritual make-up as a result of our exposure to these very real forces of darkness.

Spiritual eternity
What we need to truly grasp and understand is that both human creatures and the unseen spiritual entities exist as eternal beings. This means that we, as spiritual beings, will never cease to exist in spirit form. The difference between us and the angelic forces of both Light and Darkness is that they can move in and out of their environment of no time into our physical realm of time with ease, whereas we are locked into our environment of time. Only once we (our spirits) shed our physical house can we enter the realm of no time and actually see the other side. However, because we were created to exist as human creatures, our spirits are prohibited from operating amongst the angelic forces. Our spirits will return to God, returned in the sense that there will be a temporary continuation of our spiritual existence at a destination determined by our conduct as former earthbound creatures. That temporary existence will either be in heaven or in hell. Those in heaven will, once again, receive their physical bodies, but in glorified form, at the appointed time. The appointed time is an event referred to as the resurrection of the just. Life will then be continued in the eternal realm (of no time) for those who have participated in this resurrection, having received their glorified bodies in which they will be able to operate in the spiritual realm, that is, move through anything that is physical and travel from place to place in the blink of an eye. Their home ground will, once again, be Planet Earth. Those in hell (because of the nature of their conduct on earth) will also be resurrected at an appointed time but, sadly, it will be for the purpose of final judgement and sentence to eternity in hell in spiritual form.

We are, therefore, human creatures living on this planet for the purpose of fulfilling the God-given plan for our temporary earthbound lives that will determine our final destination. It is our duty to find out what that God-given plan is. It is a plan that consists of a way of life that empowers us to overcome the forces of darkness in no uncertain terms. The human race either has to continue living under the influence and direction of the god of this world (Satan) and his fallen angels and demons – or change direction. This may sound unfair, but the blame for our conduct rests with us and not with the invisible forces of evil. The reason for this is simply because we are free moral agents having freedom of choice. Once we know the truth, the choice becomes easy and it will set us free. But if we reject the truth and prefer the ways of this condemned satanic world then we will have made our choice. It’s really that simple. Here’s the affirmation. “Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passes away, and the lust thereof: but he that does the will of God abides for ever.” (1John 2:15-17)

Don’t misunderstand this; the world we are not to love is the world under the choice of those who love the godless lifestyles and array of attractions as laid out by the prince of this world, namely, Satan. This is made clear to us in Ephesians 6:11,12. “Put on the whole armour of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places

You need to make the right choice concerning the direction you want to take and once you do you are going to learn how to talk back to those dark forces causing them to flee at the sound of your voice. Stay with me and get ready to put on your dancing shoes.

Our stolen authority
Now for a big surprise. The reason God puts the blame on us and holds us accountable is because we have handed over our very own power to the forces of darkness which they use to weaken and destroy us. Without our power they cannot do a thing to influence our thinking and actions. Angelic beings have absolutely no authority on this earth and are prohibited from either directly doing us physical harm or directly destroying our possessions or man-made structures.  If they were, human life would have been destroyed a long time ago. In fact, Adam and Eve would have been the first and the last human creatures to taste life on this planet. Planet Earth is the domain of man. God is the owner and we are the sole stewards as decreed by God. Here’s the decree.

And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.” (Gen. 1:26-28)

So how do they use our power to bring about death and destruction in our world? First of all, they had to gain the right to use our authority and they accomplished that in the Garden of Eden when Adam handed over the power of that authority to Satan. Note that this act did not hand over our dominion to them; it merely granted the right for them use us as human agents to do their bidding. This is where our thought life enters the picture. We have become so conditioned to wickedness from having our thought life captured by dark spiritual forces that it has become part of our nature to do and speak evil without being reminded by them.

It is the freedom of choice that caused Adam to appoint Satan as Commander-in Chief of the power and authority of the human race. It was a legal act brought about by deception. He now commands and we do. We are his agents to slander, steal from, kill and destroy our fellow human beings. If God had banished Satan forever as a result of this deception He would have had to bring an immediate end to the lives of Adam and Eve as well. The decay in the behaviour of the human race and the billions of lives lost in the killing fields of the world due to pride, greed, hatred and lust for power have come about as a direct result of our very own power and authority being commandeered by Satan and his fallen angels and demons. In essence, we are as fallen as the forces of darkness. This makes us a unified evil force to the point of self-destruction.

Just briefly; After the Noahic flood the entire population of the earth came from the loins of the three sons of Noah, namely, Ham, Shem and Japheth. From these emerged 7 great, but Satan-inspired empires complete with occulted forms of government raised to maraud and conquer the areas of the world existing at their respective times of reign. It started with Egypt and then Assyria, Babylon, Medo-Persia, Greece and Rome. The current one, the 7th, is known as Mystery Babylon which, in its next form will become the 8th. Mystery Babylon is now in control of the whole world by proxy of countries that do not even realise that they are being used to further the aims of this empire. The point is that all of these empires came to being as a result of the influence of the dark spiritual forces using the power and authority of individuals to form and lead their empires to steal, kill and destroy out of greed and hunger for power.

Well, it is time for us to take back our lives, restore our birthright and retake dominion over the earth and everything in it.

Where do we start? We start by getting rid of the one thing that God hates the most – and that is pride. Pride stands as a barrier between us and God and it is the very thing that dealt a death blow to Lucifer (now Satan) and the first thing that Satan instilled in the human race to secure our spiritual death and separation from God. “The fear of the LORD is to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate.” (Prov. 8:13)

However, it is purely a matter of being cleansed through the shed blood of Jesus Christ and fully committing your life to Him. Many who are filled with pride find this hard to do and even if they do pray they do so with an insincere heart, not willing to relinquish their self-importance and superior attitude. This, of course, is clearly seen by God and He will leave the person to their own devices until their pride leads to a fall. So let’s take care of this pride thing before we tackle those dark forces.

Pride and unforgiveness – the Greatest Killers of All Time
Handed down to us from Satan through Adam was the very thing that brought about our fall from grace and the death penalty. It was the combination of pride, unforgiveness and vengeance. The three go together hand in glove. They are bosom buddies.

It was pride and self-importance that drove Lucifer (Satan) to rebel against God. This same spirit of self-importance is what destroys relationships between members of the human race and makes way for the manifestation of sicknesses and diseases.

There are those who thrive on imposing their self-acclaimed superior understanding of everything under the sun over the intellect of others. They reject correction, preferring to bask in their prideful arrogance, which is why they find it difficult to submit their lives to the authority of Jesus Christ. The Bible refers to it as haughtiness and/or loftiness. Here is what God has to say about those who wilfully follow in the footsteps of Satan.

Prov 16:5 Every one that is proud in heart is an abomination to the LORD: though hand join in hand, he shall not be unpunished.

Prov 16:18 Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall.

Isa 2:12 For the day of the LORD of hosts shall be upon every one that is proud and lofty, and upon every one that is lifted up; and he shall be brought low:

Isa 13:11 And I will punish the world for their evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; and I will cause the arrogancy of the proud to cease, and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible.

Isa 2:11 The lofty looks of man shall be humbled, and the haughtiness of men shall be bowed down, and the LORD alone shall be exalted in that day.

Pride can be likened to a bow that launches an arrow of unforgiveness in revenge upon an unsuspecting victim. But it is the wielder of the bow who falls prey to sickness and loss. The spirit of pride brings about rottenness to the flesh and brittleness to the bones.

It is absolutely clear from the mouth of God that pride, the generator of self-importance, unforgiveness and arrogance, is an abomination to Him.

Pride and unforgiveness form the breeding ground for physical and mental ill-health and the paving stones for the road to self-destruction.

If God intends to destroy those who harbour pride and unforgiveness in their hearts then, surely, we should be wise enough to pay serious attention to the matter. The following verses of Scripture should be enough to make us want to have a complete change of mind.

Mark 11:24 Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.

Mark 11:25 And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.

Mark 11:26 But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive your trespasses.

Matthew 6:14 For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you:

Matthew 6:15 But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

From the above it stands to reason that unforgiveness severs us from help from Him in time of trouble. After all, this the reason for the Cross – the place where forgiveness was imparted so that we could be set free from the penalty of eternal death and condemnation because of our pride and nature of unforgiveness. If we cannot forgive, then why should God forgive us? “For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.” (Mt 6:14,15)

When we die our spirit can no longer display pride and unforgiveness through a dead body. Our death on the Cross in Jesus Christ and resurrection in Him transformed us into brand new, born again human beings having shed our spirit-driven pride and unforgiveness. We took on the life and spiritual nature of the One who now lives within us, the One filled with joy, peace, love and forgiveness.

And that is what makes us, as born again sons and daughters of God, receive what we ask for in prayer and be able to walk in health and boldly declare, “The blood of Jesus has cleansed me of all unrighteousness. I am now one with Jesus, living by His faith, and by His stripes I am healed of all ailments, sicknesses and diseases and pride no longer fills my heart.”

Turn it all around
Now that we are absolutely clear about pride and the blockage it might cause and If you have not as yet reclaimed your birthright, then now is the time to do so. All you need to do is to thank God, in prayer, for sending His Son to pay the penalty for your condition of sin and to ask Jesus to come into your heart and be your Lord and Saviour. He does not care about your past or your present – only your future.
Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.” (2Cor. 5:17)

Did you hear that? Everything in your old life becomes dead and buried. All the pages of your book of life up to now will have no further meaning in your life – and more importantly – God no longer cares about them and no longer sees them. Your book of life re-starts with brand new words and deeds. There are ‘autograph hunters’ (family, friends and children) out there looking for a new book to talk about, cherish and embrace. Let it be your book.

From now on you will have the help of the Master Editor, the Holy Spirit, to guide the mind of your spirit in compiling further pages. You can be assured, you are going to make some mistakes, but unlike the former pages of your book of life, you will be able to render those mistakes of no consequence by confessing them to the Father and asking for forgiveness. “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” (1John 1:9)

Spiritual rebirth takes place the moment the prayer of repentance is said. God honours the commitment and regenerates the spirit of the person who comes to Him in prayer for salvation and that person becomes born again.

This means that your slate is wiped clean – the past pages of your book of life are no longer taken into account by God and spiritually, you’re literally born again. After all, you are a spiritual being – and for the very first time you are spiritually connected to God and have access to the throne of God. “Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: “ (Col 1:13)

You are no longer spiritually dead. From this point forward the Holy Spirit takes up residence within your spirit and the Kingdom of God is now within you.

A new chapter
Now you are ready to take on those depraved fallen angels and take charge of your life by the power that is in you. Also, now the holy angels of God are in a position – because of your renewed life – to respond to the words of your mouth by scattering the forces of darkness on your behalf. You are now a human powerhouse in motion energised by the words of your mouth. And those words are launched by the power of your tongue. “Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.” (Prov. 18:21)

You have renewed your mind by coming to the knowledge of the truth. Your thought life is now secured and the spirit of your mind will no longer entertain the incursion of those dark forces who seek to utilise your power and authority. Only your own thoughts and words will determine your actions and only you will utilise your God-given power and authority over this planet.

All you need now is to add little further knowledge to what you have just read. And then you can go dancing in the street.

Seated in Heavenly Places
Did you know that your area of existence as a human being expanded from your physical abode on earth to a place in the heavenly, spiritual realm right next to Jesus where he is seated and you now operate from within that realm?

This means that your life is lived both in heaven and on earth at the same time. Therefore, whatever you say is heard, simultaneously, in heaven, between heaven and earth, and on earth.

Did you know that you became one spirit with Jesus and that is why you are able to be there, in the heavenly realm, with him? “But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit.” (1Cor. 6:17)

The fact of your UNION with Christ and your dwelling in the spiritual realm is clearly illustrated in Eph. 2:4 – 6. “But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us TOGETHER with Christ (by grace ye are saved), and has raised us up TOGETHER, and made us sit TOGETHER in heavenly places in Christ Jesus.”

Our citizenship is in Heaven, but we have a job to do on earth. We are the Body of Christ, which is in Heaven and on earth. We are in SPIRITUAL UNION with Christ for as long as we remain in our physical bodies on earth. Our empowerment comes through the Holy Spirit, Who has placed us in the Kingdom of God. And that Kingdom is within us. This is how we can be both in Heaven and on earth at the same time. We are already seated in Heaven where Christ is and Christ is wherever we are on earth.

If we are spiritually seated in heavenly places together with Christ, even while we are physically present on earth, then our conduct, wherever we find ourselves, should be as if we are conducting ourselves right before the sight and hearing of Jesus. “For our conversation is in heaven”. (Eph. 3:20) In other words, when you speak to anyone – whether it is a fellow student, a work colleague or your spouse – you should converse with them as if you are seated right there in that heavenly place, with Jesus overhearing your every word. We should live our lives in constant awareness of this.

As members of the Body of Christ, the Church, we have privileges that far exceed our expectations. “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:” (Eph 1:3)

Jesus said, “… I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.”

Jesus is the head of the Church, his Body, and we are members of that Body. When Jesus was raised from the dead to be set at the right hand of the Father, he was set “Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come:” (Eph 1:21)

And we now sit together with Christ in that heavenly position because we are his Body, the Church, and as such we are far above “every name that is named”, meaning, we are in charge and have authority over everything that is evil in this world, whatever name it goes by. The name of Jesus is the name we go by to overcome any other name, wherever that name exists.
Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:
That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;
And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father
.” (Php 2:9-11)

When we, the Church, seated together with Christ in heavenly places and making our presence felt in the earth, use the name of Jesus, then things happen wherever we want it to happen.

Jesus said, “Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. Again I say unto you, that if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven, For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.” (Mt 18:18 – 20)

This is authority beyond comprehension – and we have that authority. Whatsoever we forbid on earth shall be forbidden in heaven – and whatsoever we allow on earth shall be allowed in heaven. We don’t need permission from our heavenly Father – we already have it as the Body of Christ and we know what the will of the Father is because we have the mind of Christ within us.

In addition to the power of authority we have to bind and to loose on earth, we may also ask in prayer for anything, as long as two or three agree. There are many of us in the Body of the Church. Only two or three are needed to agree in order to receive what we ask for.

Now let’s get down to business. There is a certain name that has come up in our world. It belongs to an evil, destructive force and its name is being named over and over, giving more and more power to its name. We need to destroy that name and vanquish it from the earth forever. It should not be allowed to continue its destructive action one day longer.

That name is Covid-19 sent from the gates of hell.

As the Church, we have a Name – the Name of Jesus – that is far above that name. And the gates of hell shall not prevail against the Church.

Are you ready? Let’s do it.

“In the Name of Jesus we come against the name, Covid-19. We bind your name and your destructive force right now and we destroy you completely, never for you to come up again in any form or name. Amen.”

IT IS DONE!

Are there any other names you wish to take care of? Don’t allow those forces of darkness to tell you that you’re a failure. Failure is a name. Take care of it. Don’t let them convince you that a disease has overtaken you. Diseases have names. Take care of those names. The same goes for debt, stress and anything standing in the way of succeeding in life. You have power and authority and a tongue to make it happen.

Faith is voice activated
What an astonishing statement – there is something out there, called faith, which is responsible for everything that exists and it is voice activated. In its simplest application we use it every day without thinking twice. We use it for getting out of bed each morning, for making breakfast and for going about our daily business, but when it comes to using the most powerful aspect of it we switch over to fear mode – which is something that shuts the door to faith. It is like having hope while knowing the thing desired is beyond reach.

So what is faith and what do we need it for? Simply put, faith is a living entity on standby to bring forth change in our lives whereby our needs – and even wants – are met. We might be struggling financially, have huge emotional problems or have a lingering disease that won’t go away and we are mentally screaming for help that seems out of reach. Faith can change all that.

The reality is that the basic form of what we need already exists in the invisible realm waiting for an instruction, but it can only take shape once the order is given for it to be produced. And it is produced by faith. Better still, it is created by faith. Faith turns nothing into something. We need to give that something a name in order for faith to create it. Faith is a substance out of which the desired thing is formed for output in the visible realm in which we live. And we need to look upon faith as the absolute proof of the end result. “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” (Heb 11:1)

And so we find faith waiting in the wings for someone to say something and it will not budge until it is said. Although faith is voice activated, it is activated only by a voice that knows what it wants and knows that faith will create it. And for that to happen we need to be plugged in to the power that turns faith on in order for it to start the “manufacturing” process.

It is faith that created everything in existence and once we fully understand this we should be in a position to use it to create what we earnestly desire in our lives. “Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.” (Heb 11:3)

Faith is an attribute of God and he passed on that attribute to us here on earth. God so much wants us to use it and to actually live by it that He regards it as impossible to please Him should we not do so. This is made clear in Heb 10:38. “Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him.”
We see it reaffirmed in Heb 11:6. “But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.”

God has placed the necessary power in us through Jesus Christ through whom we activate faith by the words of our mouth. It is Christ within us that moves faith on our behalf and we receive what we need to the extent to which we actually believe this truth. “Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us,” (Eph 3:20)

What the quoted verse is saying is that we receive abundantly, but only in accordance to the measure of our personal belief in the power that works in us. If we are feeble in our belief in the power of Jesus within us then what we receive will equate to our belief.

So we see then that God’s power is at our disposal and we have the authority to use it because of Jesus in us. In effect, we are living for Him and by Him and in His place here on earth, so why should we live in poverty and with sicknesses and diseases? Obviously, if we desire health and wealth for the purpose of pursuing the pleasure of this life then it is powerless luck we need and not powerful faith.

The bottom line is, if we consider Jesus in us to be an absolute reality, then we can talk to our sickness and talk to our bank accounts and faith will do the rest. You see, God has already given us the ability to do it ourselves in the name of Jesus, so why pray and ask for something that has already been done?

Faith is voice activated – so let’s start speaking. “I have been redeemed, cleansed and sanctified by the blood of Jesus. I am healed of all sicknesses and diseases from the top of my head to the soles of my feet. All my needs and desires are met as per the promises of God and my finances are undergoing a positive change. I am an heir of God through Jesus Christ and therefore what belongs to Him also belongs to me. I now partake of the wealth in this world laid up for God’s children and my bank account balance is increasing as I speak and declare in the name of Jesus. Amen”

Can you hear faith start working? Keep on speaking and do so as if nothing will stop it from happening. See your needs approaching the end of the production line.

God, “In whose hand is the soul of every living thing, and the breath of all mankind.” (Job 12:10) will hasten His word to bring about what we speak in faith because it pleases Him. It also means that we will have entered the Kingdom of which we are the subjects with the privileges that go with it.

THAT INCREDIBLE POWER WITHIN US

THERE IS A MASSIVE CONCENTRATION OF THE MOST INCREDIBLE POWER IN THE UNIVERSE MANIFESTED IN THOSE WHO ARE CHRIST’S. “But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit.” (1Cor. 6:17)

That SPIRIT/POWER is at work in us. We need only to think, let alone ask. “Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us,” (Eph. 3:20)

That POWER is at our disposal. “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father. And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.” (John 14:12-14)

That POWER enables us to carry out our purpose. “And Jesus came and spoke unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.” (Matt. 28:18-20)

That POWER is evident because of what we do and also provides protection. “And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.” (Mark 16:17.18)

And as if that is not enough POWER, here’s the real clincher. Being reconciled to God and being one with Him, we once again have dominion over all the earth – even able to subdue it, such as taking control of the weather elements and calling for rain where it is needed.

Gen 1:26. “And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.”
Gen. 1:27. “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.”
Gen. 1:28. “And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.”

And if that is not convincing enough, here’s confirmation of that dominion POWER. “For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.” (Mark 11:23”

If His faith is in us – and it is because we are one spirit – we only need to say it, say it, say it.

That’s the dominion side of POWER. It requires word action from our side. 

Then there are the things we desire personally, which do not fall under the dominion-power category. “Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.” (Mark 11:24)

That’s the prayer side of POWER for having personal desires met. It requires prayer and belief, belief, belief.

All we need to do is to remain conscious of who and what we are in Christ. We will never be perfect, but guess who is perfect? – Christ in us. Constant awareness of this fact should be enough for us to abide in Him. “If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.” (John 15:7)

We are free, free, free. “If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.” (John 8:36)

So what is the bottom line to all of this? We need to stop crying to God in beggarly fashion. We need to start believing instead of hoping. We need to start being what He has made us – and that is dominion-powered, faith-driven sons and daughters of God.

We are co-heirs with Christ in the here and now. All the cattle on a thousand hills belong to Him and therefore to us. Every inch of land above sea level is a hill and we have dominion over it. All power (authority) has been given to Him in heaven AND in earth, THEREFORE, we are EMPOWERED by His presence within us. There is absolutely nothing greater than what we already have.  

Do we need rain? Let’s call those rain clouds to gather where we need them in the name of Jesus and bring down the rain.

Do we have personal needs and even desires? Let’s ask in prayer and believe that we have what we ask for at that very moment.

We need to follow the example of that centurion in Matthew 8 and hear Jesus saying the same thing about us. “When Jesus heard it, he marvelled, and said to them that followed, Verily I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel.” (Mt 8:10)

Let’s cause Jesus to marvel at us too.

Is your front door beckoning?

We can’t see the Stark Naked Truth because of our Prison Outfits

Is Covid-19 a reality? Yes, it is.

Are the testing and death figures for the virus being inflated? Yes, they are.

Are the figures being manipulated for political reasons? Yes, they are.

Is there an ill-purposed agenda behind the manipulation? Yes, there is.

Are there sinister motives for central banks printing enough money to flood the world with monetary assistance through international financial aid institutions? Yes, there is. They never did this before to help the poor and homeless.

To provide answers to these questions we need to lay a quick foundation in order for the puzzling events to make sense.

Right now the human race is being herded like sheep to enter a certain sheepfold so that it can be controlled and graded for political purposes. It is crucial that we resist the manoeuvre and change direction to another sheepfold that provides ultimate protection.

Our prison house
The physical world we live in can be likened to one big correctional institution wherein everyone is on parole and scurrying around in futile pursuit of their dreams. This makes our planet one huge recreational yard where activities include promiscuity, adultery, fornication, idolatry, witchcraft, conflict, covetousness, drunken revelry, drug use, deceit, greed, thievery, corruption, murder, genocide, war and destruction. It seems everyone is a captive to a force they need to be delivered from, but ignorance dominates the soul of the human race.

The parole officers (also on parole, of course) are of a special breed known as politicians. They have managed to outsmart others in the yard and have established governments and kingdoms by which they rule over everyone else in their parts of the correctional institution.

The most powerful of these governments and kingdoms are like prison gangs perpetually on the warpath against each other. World supremacy is the name of the game, even at the cost of millions of lives in this correctional institution called Planet Earth.

Ignorance is not bliss
The strangest thing about this entire setup is that nobody knows that they are on parole – not even the ‘parole officers’. Everyone is doing their own thing, oblivious to the eyes upon them from another dimension watching their every move and using them to perform covert actions through a very elite section of the correctional institution. These elite groups, although operating overtly, but as secret societies, have an unsuspecting world in their grip as they progressively manipulate the political, banking, economic and religious systems of the world for the purpose of consummate global control.

Now let’s look at the big picture.

What temple is this?

A never-ending (and even heated) debate has been going in the Christian world for many moons on whether the future catching away (rapture) of the Church will be a pre-trib, mid-trib, post-trib, pre-wrath or post-wrath event. Those of each persuasion offer in support many scriptural proofs for their firm beliefs on the matter. Perhaps a re-look is called for by using a launching point that would steer the doctrine in a direction unaffected by seemingly disruptive portions of Scripture causing it to crash to the ground. In other words, it should deliver a smooth-flowing order of events that leaves us with a sigh of relief.

The launching point to be used is 2Thes.2 where Paul assured believers at that time that they would not be meeting the Lord in the air until certain things were in place before it could be fulfilled. He emphasised three things, namely

  • There would be an attempt to deceive them
  • There had to be a falling away first
  • The man of sin had to be revealed

The deception would be the cause of the falling away, as we shall see. The falling away – by those who would become weak in the faith because of worldly attractions and/or because of being coerced to follow another direction by the dictates of the governing authorities of the day – had to be widespread and the situation had to be followed by the revealing of the identity of the man of sin. Has this happened as yet? Yes, it has. And has the man of sin already taken a seat in the temple of God declaring that he is God? Yes, he has.

Now it is just a matter of qualifying these assertions by going over the timing of these events. Stay with me on this.

The falling away
The world population during the time of Jesus’ ministry was only about 200 million people concentrated mainly in the areas of the Roman Empire, the Middle East and surrounding areas as well as the northern parts of Africa and the coastal regions of Europe. That’s well under 3% of today’s population. The persecution of Christians and Jews started in the early days of the Christian Church after Jesus had ascended. The Roman Empire persecuted and killed over 10 million Christians after which the Holy Roman Empire (Roman Catholic Church) tried to wipe out the Christian Church and succeeded in killing over 50 million Christians during the centuries that followed.

Being relentlessly pursued and persecuted, many Christians gradually fell away from the true faith into a Babylonian-based Roman cult of Christianity giving in to and accepting the creeds of the Roman Catholic Church for the sake of protection and peace. From a very low population at that time it stands to reason the “falling away” of Christians would have shown an exponential growth as the world population grew to over 7 billion people cavorting in the pleasures of a fallen world. Today we live in the era of the Laodicean church, which is steeped in worldliness – ‘fallen away’, to say the least.

The “falling away” thus started as early as in days of the Roman Empire and has been ongoing ever since. No doubt, as the Church grows, so more will fall away during the end times, but for all intents and purpose the falling away as pointed out by Paul commenced during the early part of the history of the Church.

The man of sin
It is understood and believed by many that the man of sin takes up a seat in “the temple of God” and that he declares himself to be God only at the very end of the age after making a 7-year peace agreement in the Middle East.

While it is evident from the Bible that there will be a proliferation and intensification of wickedness in the world during the very last stages of the end times (as we are witnessing right now) and that it could play out over a period of seven years inclusive of God’s judgements over the human race, nowhere in the Bible is it actually spelt out or prophesied that a 7-year peace agreement and tribulation period will mark the very last days. We are merely given the duration of certain events that occur with some events taking place simultaneously during the last years leading up to the final moment. The “beginning of sorrows” transitions into the most horrendous period of time ever in the history of mankind.

Now let’s look at that controversial verse of Scripture. “Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.” (2Thess. 2:4)

We need to ask ourselves, “What temple is this and to whom is he showing that he is God?”

First of all, it states that he places his importance above all the gods that are worshipped on earth, that is, the gods of all the religions of the world including the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the Christian God.

Secondly, he is not “showing” that he is the actual God that Christians believe in – he is “showing himself” that he is God. In other words, he believes, is convinced of, assumes and pretends that he, himself, is the appointed God over the Christian community and all religious communities, the sole representative of the true God of heaven here on earth. As such the Christian world should look to him and him alone as God’s sole authority, in the place of the Christ, on earth – meaning that salvation may be imparted only by the divine authority vested in him as the head of the true church on earth.

And that church is the Roman Catholic Church, the seat of the Pope where he sits “showing himself” that he is God. He expects the world to acknowledge and revere his divinely-appointed authority over the earthly realm while he “sits in the temple of God”.

The “man of sin” is a position held by a succession of ‘men of sin’ and this role is filled by the Pope at any time of office.

So, Paul pointed to the falling away and the revealing of the man of sin, the son of perdition, to become a reality before “the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him” can happen. The rapture is now ‘free’ to become a reality and after it does the son of perdition becomes the beast that emerges from the earth. “And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.” (Rev. 13:8)

The Temple has moved
When Jesus said to his disciples, “When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains:” (Mt 24:15,16), he was referring to 70 AD when the abomination of idols were placed so as to “stand” (not sit) in the holy place, thereby (for the purpose of) “overspreading the former holy place.

I say, “former holy place”, because when Jesus died on the Cross 40 years earlier the curtain to the Holy of Holies was ripped open from top to bottom, no longer to be the Temple of God. The Temple of God moved to the hearts of believers. The disciples were forewarned that the abomination enacted by the Romans in 70 AD would be the sign for them to escape from the city and not that it was the event in our times to precede the rapture.

The Pope of Rome now usurps the role of overseer of the no longer existing temple made with the hands of men.

Time to look up
So when are we to “look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh” and “Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.”? Faithful Christians have been watching for 2 000 years and only now do we experience the signs.

Jesus was warning that we should be ready at all times by living a life of righteousness so that our garments would be clean and made ready for “our gathering together unto him.”

Spiritually, we are already “seated in heavenly places” and “our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself.” (Php 3:20,21)

So, it is no longer a matter of a pre-trib or post-trib rapture or a rapture dependent on waiting for a falling away first or for the man of sin to be revealed.

It is a rapture that will remove the temple (Christians) of God at any time between now and the end of the beginning of sorrows and when there is silence in heaven, after which, God, “In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power;” (2Thess.1:8,9)

The Covid-19 lockdown is a kick under the butt for all Christians. It comes with the question, “Have you made yourself ready?”

Our Masked World should start paying Serious Attention

It is appropriate that the inhabitants of the world are walking around with masked faces so as not to talk so much but rather to listen with uncovered ears. A lot has to be heard, especially at this time where the human race is caught up in an enforced situation that is causing untold misery and hardship

The current Covid-19 crisis is but the ‘opening statement’ to a narrative that not many would want to hear. It is being used as a practice run for what is to come. By the end of this article the picture should be crystal clear. Perhaps by listening to the final word concerning the fate of the world and those who live in it, ears will be pricked to hear more. “And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.” (Rev. 21:1)

This most certainly tells us that the ‘old’ world, the world we’ve come to know, has undergone a drastic change, but not as yet. It is a future event, but it is most definitely a scheduled event.

If there is to be a “new heaven and a new earth”, then something must first happen to the old world – the world we know today. Let’s see. “But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.” (2Peter 3:10)

Now why should this be of concern right now? Has the last book of the Bible, the book of Revelation, not always been put on the backburner as something containing events that will never occur in our lifetime? If the establishment of the new world is imminent, then what makes it imminent? It is imminent because of the clear-cut signs given in the New Testament that would mark the end of this age.

Expropriation is coming
This age – the age we live in – has a predetermined lifespan as decreed by God. This planet, along with every celestial body in the entire cosmos, is the property of the Supreme Ruler of the Universe, namely, the God of creation. And every form of life – the human race and plant and animal life – is the work of His hands. He is aware of and in control of every event of activity in our world. He has given the world a choice – that of living according to His righteousness or to oppose everything He stands for. With the exception of a growing remnant, the vast majority of those who have lived and died and of those alive today have opted to ignore His perfect will for man. A thousand pages can be written about this, but we only need to acquaint ourselves with the God of the Bible to clearly get the picture.

God is a God of judgement and He has always judged the nations for their iniquities ever since the days of the Garden of Eden when the first man, Adam, sinned against God. We only need to read through the Old Testament to see how cities and nations have fallen either directly at the hand of God or by proxy (using other nations/empires to perform His will).

God brought to an end the empires of Egypt, Assyria, Babylon, Medo-Persia, Greece and Rome after using each of them to fulfil His will. The last-mentioned empire, the Roman Empire, although destroyed, transitioned to a different form of existence – that of a religious organisation and in this form has been controlling the world system of economics, politics and religion. In other words, the Roman Empire is alive and well and has been using covert action through highly secretive societies to prepare every corner of the world for a final showdown with God by forming a One World Government and opening the door to its founder, Satan, to take the lead.

The so-called “White Privilege” image.

An article by Phil Jellerson:

Preface: The so-called “White privilege” image is a sinister political and cultural poison. It is a death knell to racial harmony and social prosperity.

I recently read a statement that vies as the most troubling advice I have heard. The statement reads, “To become agents of change and learn to combat injustice, white children need to understand that we live in an unfair system that benefits them at the expense of others.”If that isn’t the summit of racism I don’t know what would be. That idiotic proposal is pure racist poison. If that advice were implemented it would produce generations of white children wrongfully accused and judged. Worse, they would be robbed of the right to a socially free and meaningful life. The unforgivable error is the plaintiffs are using the past to to paint the present. That is regression not progression.
