July 17

I’m studying Philippians, and the scripture that the Holy Spirit has me focused on comes with a warning. 

Look out for   the dogs, look out for   the evildoers, look out for those who mutilate the flesh. Philippians 3:2

Would you consider the current viral crisis mutilation of the flesh? For some people, it is as many have died. What about all the children that have gone missing? Have they been sacrificed in Baal worship? Think about the people who want to change their sexual identity and believe it can be done with surgery. All of these could be considered mutilations of the flesh. The evildoers are the false prophets and those who teach that these issues are harmless. Keep your eyes open and pray against them. Here is some scripture follow-up: 

For  dogs encompass me; a company of evildoers   encircles me; they have   pierced my hands and feet  Psalms 22:16

Deliver my soul from the sword, my precious life from the power of  the dog!  Psalms 22:20

Outside are  the dogs  and sorcerers and the sexually immoral and murderers and idolaters, and everyone who loves and practices falsehood. Revelation 22:15

Yesterday, I decided to have corned beef and cabbage for dinner. Early that morning, I put the ingredients into the crockpot so it could stew all day. I had a meeting, so I left and didn’t come back home until around noon. The meal was well underway. When I stepped out of my car in the garage, I could smell something stinky like garbage, but my trash was down by the road to be picked up. I had no idea what it could be until I opened the door; it was the cabbage! I had forgotten how nasty it smells. What was also gross, flies were waiting at my door trying to come into the house. I guess they thought it was garbage too! That smell is still lingering in my house this morning, but it was delicious!

The illicit underhanded ways of the devil are attractive to those who love sin; they are drawn to it like flies, and it’s delicious to them. The smell of it is disgusting like garbage to God, and he turns his face away from it. Sin is flaunted these days like a badge of honor, and it’s not even hidden from our children anymore. The only hope for this world is for them to turn their life over to Jesus. He is our only salvation in this dying world.

For we are the aroma of Christ to God among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing, to one a fragrance from death to death, to the other a fragrance from life to life. Who is sufficient for these things? 2 Corinthians 2 15-16

I’m sure you’ve seen the pictures and videos of two random acts of God this week. One being the lightning strike that demolished the image of the idol of the woke cult, George Floyd. It struck precisely on his face crumbling the brick facade to the ground. There were no thunderstorms in the area and no record of the strike at the local weather station. Hmm, I wonder how that happened?

To set the scene for the second one, a reporter asked Conor McGregor, an MMA fighter, if he could beat Jesus in a fight, and he said, “even Jesus couldn’t beat me!” He arrogantly said something along the same line the day of the fight. In a cringe-worthy fashion, McGregor’s leg broke and bent like a rubber toy in the first round of his most recent fight. His opponent wasn’t even near that leg! God doesn’t play! When he decides to display his power for the masses, he does it in a way that grabs attention. In those two instances, it is evident that God had a hand in it.

When are people going to realize that our existence is not a game and we are meant for a higher purpose? The funny thing is, I’ll bet no one will wake up because of these two things being their minds are too overtaken by selfishness. In the light of these acts, you’ve got to wonder what kind of miraculous displays we will see as we near the end of Satan’s reign. Get out the popcorn and watch as it all unfolds before our very eyes.

Do not be deceived: God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that will he also reap. Galatians 6:7

I like to shop on Amazon; it’s easy and keeps me from going to the store. I live close to a distribution center and can sometimes get my merchandise delivered the same day that I order it. I get excited when I see a product that offers same-day delivery. Disappointment comes when I hit the “pay” button and then see that the delivery date has changed; why that happens, I have no idea. The package still comes but is delayed. I compare it to what’s going on right now; it looks as though the New World Order is coming upon us quickly, and waiting on Jesus’s return or the earthy hero appointed by God to rescue us seems delayed. Anxiety and disappointment are running rampant among the people, but we must remember that all things will happen in God’s timing and not before. God is orderly, and nothing occurs until he gives his approval. Be patient; you are safe because your life is in the hands of God; it’s the people who’ve rejected Jesus that need to worry, not us.

For still the vision awaits its appointed time; it hastens to the end—it will not lie. If it seems slow, wait for it; it will surely come; it will not delay. Habakkuk 2:3

This world is getting crazier by the day; I’m trying not to gloat over what’s about to happen, but I’m anxious for the day that we get to see all of the Satan worshipers and Christ deniers bow their knees upon hearing the name of Jesus. All those rejecting him and causing havoc for the children of God will find themselves face to face with a power beyond their wildest imagination and seeing what we already see, that he is indeed the Savior of the world. Those who are in Christ, but fast asleep concerning the prophecy that’s unfolding before our eyes, will be rudely awakened, but in a good way. We are closer than ever to his return! I’m sorry for often repeating the same thing; it’s hard not to shout it from the rooftop when all the pieces are beginning to fall into place. This event is worldwide; we are seeing oppression happening everywhere, near and far. Even in the freest country globally, we are seeing the government overstepping its authority with its plans. Brace yourself for the return of our King! We are living in exciting times!

Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Philippians 2:9-11

Our best hope is Jesus. This world has gone mad, but our Savior is with us; therefore, we have no fear of its destruction. Rest knowing we are safe; it is those who worship Satan who must fear. The recompense of the wicked is here and now. The deceiver’s reign is coming close to an end. Rejoice that God will spare you because your heart is aligned with Jesus. If you haven’t prayed Psalms 91 in a while, it’s time to pray it again. Pray its words in your home. Pray its words around your home. Pray for the Holy Spirit to turn your home and surrounding area into a fortress, impenetrable by Satan and his workers of evil. They will be coming to your door, so make sure your defense is strong.

I pray this prayer over my family: Lord, I ask you to watch over my family and me, surround us with your fortress, cover us with your shield, and place your mighty warrior angels around us to keep us safe and free from the fiery darts of Satan. Amen.

Add to that Psalms 91, and believe God’s promises.

A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you. You will only look with your eyes and see the recompense of the wicked. Psalms 91:7-8

I love plants. I went to a plant show yesterday and found some unusual varieties that I had never seen. I purchased a couple, so now I will try to cultivate them to make more. I love other things like sewing and crafting, but I always garden no matter what I choose as my next whim. It’s work, especially the landscape, but it’s always worth it. When you love something, you focus a lot of time and energy on it. Even when you get sidetracked on other things, your heart returns to that love. 

After I get my landscape the way I want it, it manages itself with me doing minor weeding and trimming. 

My point today is, if you love something, you put effort into it. Watch what happens to your yard if you neglect it; it becomes overtaken by weeds, your plants become leggy, and it looks as though no one lives there. Sadly, that’s what happens to us when we neglect our relationship with Jesus. If you truly love Jesus, you will put as much effort into cultivating a relationship with him as you do your hobby.

For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain. If I am to live in the flesh, that means fruitful labor for me. Yet which I shall choose I cannot tell. Philippians 1:21-22
