February 13

How long must we contend with the likes of evil? It’s hard to imagine that God would allow the current criminality to continue and the good people, who lean on Jesus, to lose hope. I haven’t lost hope, and neither should you. The time for our faith to increase is now, along with our prayers. We are currently seeing Satan’s lies exposed, and a genuine awakening is happening throughout the world. Every day God is showing me new things to bring into the light the plot to do harm and enslave the world by a new world order. 

This perfect plan wasn’t put into place by man; it spans over a time much longer than the life of man, and we can only attribute this to Satan. Those involved in carrying out this scheme are merely puppets in his hands. Even though it’s called a new world order, there is no order to this decree because it will only cause more chaos and heartbreak. 

This war is spiritual, and the only way to fight it is to put on the whole armor of God. Stand firm, mighty warriors! God is opening a door for you to step through and be a part of this new era where he is glorified. It makes the evil forces shudder, and if it makes them shudder, that makes me happy! Similar to the plot by the Jews to kill Paul, it was foiled by people like us doing our part.

When many days had passed, the Jews plotted to kill him, but their plot became known to Saul. They were watching the gates day and night in order to kill him, but his disciples took him by night and let him down through an opening in the wall, lowering him in a basket. Acts 9:23-25

Why do we have to suffer at the hands of the enemy? It’s part of the threshing process. I watched a video on threshing because I’ve never seen it. It’s pretty simple but seems brutal! In the video, they put the whole stalk of wheat in a cloth bag and beat the heck out of it; then, they used a fan to winnow and separate the wheat from the chaff, or the husk. We are that stalk of wheat, and God is only interested in our perfect fruit that’s been threshed and winnowed. We must go through trials and be beaten-up to learn to rely on him entirely and forget this world's draw. 

Paul lived a pretty good life, but didn’t he notice that he was killing people, God’s creation? God had to do something dramatic for him to learn the truth. He appeared to him, blinded him, and then healed him at the hand of another Christ-follower. Then, he continued to thrash him; he wrote the process on the pages of the New Testament as letters. Learn as much as you can from Paul’s threshing, so you don’t have to go through as much of that complicated process.

But the Lord said to him, “Go, for he is a chosen instrument of mine to carry my name before the Gentiles and kings and the children of Israel. For I will show him how much he must suffer for the sake of my name.” Acts 9:15-16

People are learning the truth about the lies perpetuated by our government to gain control of the people. As the truth becomes more transparent, many are taking back their precious freedom afforded by our constitution. I don’t think we know what real freedom is, being none of us have lived in it. Unknown to us, our constitution became void in eighteen seventy one by an act of congress, and we all became owned by a foreign government and have submitted to them since. I know this may seem far fetched, and we are living as if we had all our rights under the constitution, but if you pay attention and do a little digging, you will find that what I’m saying is true. 

Do you ever wonder why our country is so obsessed with British royalty? There’s a reason. However, according to some of the sources I read, the agreement and the corporation of eighteen seventy one is now void, which opens the door for us to go back to living with our constitution and cleaning up the laws and congress, and offers us the ability to take back our financial system. Our current government is part of the defunct corporation and may find themselves out of a job and even guilty of crimes. 

Many of our past presidents tried to warn us about this, including John F. Kennedy and Ronald Regan. I’m no history buff, but because of our current situation, I’ve been digging in and learning as much as my little brain can handle. Do I believe in misinformation? If so, many people are saying the same thing, and they aren’t connected, and their evidence is compelling. Don’t take my word for this, do your own search. The truth is out there, but sometimes you have to dig a little.

We have a choice; live with the current administration that is ushering us into communism or take back our rights under the constitution. Keep praying! The only way this will end well is for God to take control. He hears our prayers, and I’m convinced he is going to set us free.

We often wonder how murderers and others who commit egregious crimes receive forgiveness, especially when their crimes are against us. Some find Jesus before they are executed, and others live for him while in jail. God gives us an example in Paul. Here is a fun fact about Paul; he was initially called Saul, but was also called Paul. According to Matthew Henry, Paul means little; that’s a good name for him being he was only 4’6” tall! Maybe people calling him Paul was to keep him humble. God’s forgiveness of Paul is a prime example of how merciful he is. This little man was killing God’s chosen! He was also a scholar and knew his way through the scriptures, and as we know, he wrote most of the New Testament. God had given him skills that he could use to spread the word about Jesus. Paul is a picture of God’s transforming power. Don’t get too mad when a convicted murder or other heinous criminal comes to know Jesus and receives forgiveness; Paul was the worst of the worse.

And falling to the ground, he heard a voice saying to him, “Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting me?” And he said, “Who are you, Lord?” And he said, “I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting. Acts 9:4-5

WARNING! CONTROVERSIAL! But is it? Most believe that you receive the Holy Spirit upon accepting Jesus as your Savior. If this is true, why did Peter and John need to go to Samaria to pray for the people there to receive the Holy Spirit after they accepted the Word of God? 

for he had not yet fallen on any of them, but they had only been baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. Acts 8:16

I’m going to muddy the water a little more; you cannot be saved without the Holy Spirit. If it is true that you receive the Holy Spirit upon acceptance of the Word of God and at your baptism in the name of Jesus, why are there so many “pew sitters” that are unsaved? They’ve gone through the recommended process, but because of their actions, it’s obvious they don’t know Jesus. If everyone who claimed to be a Christ-follower had the Holy Spirit, this world wouldn’t be in its current predicament. 

By the way, I haven’t found any verse that says you receive the Holy Spirit upon acceptance of Jesus and his Word. The closest I found is Ephesians 1:13, and it doesn’t give a sequence of events like Acts 8:14-17

Then again, maybe some get the Holy Spirit right away, but the caveat is that you must genuinely accept Jesus and believe in your heart that he is your Savior. I want you to question your salvation to make sure you are genuinely saved. I don’t want to scare you, but I also don’t want to see anyone get left behind.

Now when the apostles at Jerusalem heard that Samaria had received the word of God, they sent to them Peter and John, who came down and prayed for them that they might receive the Holy Spirit, for he had not yet fallen on any of them, but they had only been baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. Then they laid their hands on them and they received the Holy Spirit. 8:14-17

People fear change. In biblical days, the Israelites feared leaving Egypt and their captors' tyranny, yet God had a plan. Through Moses, he helped free them from their slavery and gave them a land of their own. 

‘But I will judge the nation that they serve,’ said God, ‘and after that they shall come out and worship me in this place.’ Acts 7:7

Many years later, Jesus came to free them from the captivity of their sin, but most feared the change in their religion and rejected him. They didn’t want to believe him even though he showed them signs that only God could do. 

What is holding you back from trusting God completely? We must get beyond our fear, relax, and watch as God takes control of our destiny. We might have to spend a little time in the desert, but not very long. He has heard our prayers and cries for mercy, and he will answer them; give him time to work out the details and watch as things fall into place. Jesus loves us; he will never forsake us, that you can be sure. Shore up your faith and keep praying!

What really happened? Have you ever wondered if what we are seeing is real? Have we been fed an illusion? Do you ask questions, or do you accept the narrative? When something is a little off, do you investigate the inconsistencies or look it up to find an opposing view? 

We have become so well programmed that we believe everything we hear without question. My advice; question everything! Do a little digging; the truth is out there, but sinister beings are trying to keep the masses under their control, so they cover it up. I’ve been saying this for a long time about biblical teachings, but I didn’t realize we needed to do the same thing with current events. Who knew? I feel like we are watching a blooper reel with the bloopers explained away.

Ask God for discernment and to open your eyes to the truth, not only for biblical teachings but also for everyday life. Stop watching the news! It’s nothing more than a theatrical show to control you and feed you lies. If anyone is going to control me, it’s God, no one else! How about you? Be a Berean about everything!

Now these Jews were more noble than those in Thessalonica; they received the word with all eagerness, examining the Scriptures daily to see if these things were so. Acts 17:11
