Sharing the Oneness of God, Religion and Humanity, while Teaching Ancient Wisdom For Today

Jesus and the Kingdom of God

‘The apostles, when instilled with the Holy Spirit, came out preaching the kingdom of God was at hand and comes to us by grace as we love one another by doing the will of the Father in heaven instead of the fathers of the earth. That Kingdom is now living in the hearts of those who follow His way as doers of His word.

Christ came that the whole World might be saved. He was going to take the kingdom from the Pharisees because they were not bearing fruit, the fruit of Repentance. He complained about their Corban because it was making the word of God to none effect because children were not taking care of the needs of their parents but leaving that to the Corban run through the temple.

Jesus condemned them because they did not attend to the weightier matters. Jesus warned them to call no man on earth Father and not be like the Benefactors who exercised authority. John the Baptist had preached against the forced contribution of the world and said that to make the way of the Lord straight[18] they needed to care for their social needs with charity.

Peter and Paul warn against covetousness and eating that which was offered in these civil systems of social welfare. Peter tells you that it is this covetousness that would return you to bondage and make you human resources, literally Merchandise. He tells you that through these Covetous Practices that you would curse your children with debt and bondage – and you have. You are warned not to bite one another because you will be devoured by this act of unrighteousness.

The early Christians were persecuted for the most part because they did not sign up for Roman welfare for their free Bread and circuses. This was clearly the Christian conflict with Rome.

Modern Christians often claim a belief in Christ and The Way but are not doers of His word and are in need of Repentance.’

Jesus and His Word

The truth is more people more then ever if not most know the gospel of Jesus Christ by now. I have seen from all over the world people that are preaching Jesus: sound doctrine… the truth is the majority know Jesus they just don’t want to accept His word. The hard truth is the majority now are going to remain blind because they are to caught up in feelings emotions and rebellious ways. The sound teaching of the living God instructs us that we would see these things take place. I will keep speaking of the things. But my feelings emotions and flesh wants to just tell people to see it how it is. I always say I am not perfect. My feelings take over too and I have to keep myself in check, my pride takes over and God has to keep me in check from time to time. I struggle like the rest. But I will remain faithful and true to the sounds words and inerrant infallible word of the living God who took on flesh and died for me and you. As we enter this new era of apostasy and lukewarm christians, politically correct christians who wants to worship a politically correct Jesus realize we are entering a prophetic time where it will become more difficult to edify. Be armed with the words of God. We have entered the final battle where we need to encourage the remnant to keep pressing forward and not give up. It will get ugly. But Jesus is bringing the justice.

Satan may rule, but God is in Control

Just in case you don’t know the truth the world is being controlled by Satan!! Not Trump not Biden not the Rothschild’s Satan! Everything being presented to you on the thing called the literal Tell-lie-vision is nothing more than a show!!They are busy distracting you with all that so you don’t seek forgiveness become humble and admit we are sinners who live in a world filled with it! From drugs,news, propaganda all designed to keep you thinking about the things of this world instead of what lays after we are all being played even me holding this very device typing this we are living in a virtual reality that has was created to enslave us into that matrix and mentally enslave us! The people are all actors that worship satan himself! Yes you heard that right Trump is a Satanic he worships the devil and so does Biden! This world has been controlled by Satan he is the true string puller and reason why everything is now backwards and I wish more of you could see that! We must pray daily have a personal relationship with Jesus forgive everyone in our hearts that has wronged us and seek forgiveness. This world will perish but the word of God the creator shall never parish. Stop thinking about the world and seek God and repent because the steaks couldn’t possibly be any higher!! Our literal souls are on the line! There is a Heaven and there is also a Hell and that is eternal! Wake Up!

Being a Pentecostal in a Modern World

For many people, “Pentecostal” is a new word. Although it has become much more common in recent years, its roots go back to an ancient Jewish feast and, more recently, to the first outpouring of the Holy Spirit on the earliest Christian believers. Because this initial outpouring of the Spirit took place on the Day of Pentecost (Acts chapter 2), those who experience a similar infilling of the Spirit are known as Pentecostals. They look to the Book of Acts as a guide for how to live out their Christian faith. Many of the key players in Acts were eyewitnesses of the life and teachings of Jesus, and it follows that they would have the clearest insight into the way in which to worship Jesus.

Pentecostals believe it is important to be led of the Spirit. However, this desire to be led of the Spirit does not conflict with a high view of the Bible as a primary source for truth. From our belief in an intelligent, loving Creator, we should expect God to reveal His message in writing, the historic medium best suited for precision, preservation, and propagation. When we read, study, and listen to the Bible, we hear the voice of the living Lord speaking to us today. We receive the message that can transform our lives and lead us to eternal life.

The beautiful message of Scripture is that our Creator became our Savior. The God against whom we sinned is the One who forgives us. God loved us so much that He came in flesh to save us. He gave of Himself; He did not send someone else. Moreover, our Creator-Savior is also the indwelling Spirit who is ever-present to help us. God told us how to live and then came to live among us. He showed us how to live in the flesh and laid down His human life to purchase our salvation. Now He abides within us and enables us to live according to His will.

Jesus Christ is the one God incarnate, and in Him we have everything we need: healing, deliverance, victory, and salvation (Colossians 2:9-10). By recognizing the almighty God in Jesus Christ, we restore correct biblical belief and experience apostolic power.

Our experience and doctrine should conform to the complete biblical pattern. As we respond to the gospel and believe on Jesus Christ, we will repent of our sins, be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ, and receive the gift of the Holy Spirit (Acts chapters 2, 8, 10, 19). We do not reject those who have not received the complete New Testament experience, but we encourage them to receive everything God has for them.

Ultimately, each of us is accountable to God for our response of faith. The Bible is the sole authority for salvation; the basis of salvation is Christ’s death, burial, and resurrection; salvation comes only by grace through faith in Jesus Christ; and the application of grace and the expression of faith come as a person obeys Acts 2:38, thereby receiving the new birth promised by Jesus.

Holiness is an integral part of the salvation of the whole person from sin’s power and effects. It is a joyful privilege; a part of abundant life; a blessing from God’s grace; a glorious life of freedom and power. The life of holiness fulfills God’s original intention and design for humanity. For the Spirit-filled believer who loves God, holiness is the normal—indeed the only—way to live.

The act of worship is the rule and not the exception in human existence. The question is not will humans worship, but rather who and how will they worship. God calls people to worship Him passionately with every area of their lives, and all of our actions and attitudes have the possibility to bring honor to God. Jesus wanted to draw all people, regardless of their backgrounds. He still calls us to authentic worship today.

God “is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us” (Ephesians 3:20). As Spirit-filled believers, we can exercise simple faith to receive God’s miraculous gifts and to stir up the gifts He has already placed in our midst. Whenever special needs arise, we should believe that He can work through us. In this way, the gifts of the Spirit become vital tools for strengthening the church.

On the Day of Pentecost, Peter reminded his audience that God would pour out His Spirit on all flesh. He promised that the Pentecostal experience was for “all those afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call” (Acts 2:39).

This life-changing promise still holds true today. Around the world and across racial, ethnic, and socio-economic barriers, people are embracing Pentecostalism. Or perhaps it would be more accurate to say that people are encountering the power of the Holy Spirit.

The Law and the Gospel

 What is God’s Law?
 Everything commanded by God to man in His Word.
 Ten Commandments as summary
 Jesus’ macro-summary: two great commandments — love for God and for neighbors as self (Mt. 22:36-39).
 Moses’ summary: “You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might” (Deut. 6:5).
 Three Types of Law
 Moral Law – God’s unchanging moral demands
 Ceremonial Law – OT ordinances pointing forward to Christ’s atoning death  Civil Law – Applications of moral law particular to Israel as theocratic state
 Three Uses of the Law
 Mirror: shows us our sin so that we appeal to Christ  Curb: punishments restrain evil
 Rule: guide for life for believers
▪ “The third use of the Law. . .has respect to believers in whose hearts the Spirit of God already flourishes and reigns. … For it is the best instrument for enabling them daily to learn with greater truth and certainty what that will of the Lord is which they aspire to follow, and to confirm them in this knowledge” (John Calvin, Institutes, 2.7.12).

 Two Tablets
 Love for God (1-5)
 Love for Neighbor (6-10)
 Rules for Understanding the Ten Commandments (WLC99):
 The law is perfect, requiring full conformity and forbidding the least degree of sin
 The law is spiritual, reaching the understanding, will, and affections, as well as actions
 The law both requires and forbids
 Where a duty is commanded, the contrary is forbidden
 What God forbids is never allowed; what God requires is always a duty
 Prohibitions Imply Obligations
 6th: “Do not murder” – implies protecting
 7th: “Do not commit adultery” – implies purity
 8th: “Do not steal” – implies providing
 9th: “Do not bear false testimony” – implies defending truth  10th: “Do not covet” – implies contentment

 Not under law, but under grace
 “For sin will have no dominion over you, since you are not under law but under grace” (Rom. 6:14).
 “True believers are not under the law, as a covenant of works, to be thereby justified, or condemned” (WCF 19.5).
 Believers able to keep the Law
 “For the law of the Spirit of life has set you free in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and death. For God has done what the law, weakened by the flesh, could not do. By sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and for sin, he condemned sin in the flesh, in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not according to the flesh but according to the Spirit” (Rom. 8:2-4).
 Christians struggling with “two natures” in this life
 “You have heard about him and were taught in him, as the truth is in Jesus, to put off your old self, which belongs to your former manner of life and is corrupt through deceitful desires, and to be renewed in the spirit of your minds, and to put on the new self, created after the likeness of God in true righteousness and holiness” (Eph. 4:21-24).
 “Put to death therefore what is earthly in you: sexual immorality, impurity, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry” (Col. 3:5).
 “But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to gratify its desires” (Rom. 13:14).
 No Christians Perfect in this Life
 “Not that I have already obtained this or am already perfect, but I press on to make it my own, because Christ Jesus has made me his own. Brothers, I do not consider that I have made it my own. But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus” (Phil. 3:12-14).

 The gospel is all that God has promised to do for his people and give to his people through Jesus Christ.
 God’s redemptive-historical answer to the problem of sin (see Gen. 2-3).
 Redemptive-Historical means God’s acts in history to accomplish the redemption of His people.
 Corresponds to the covenant of grace, which is God’s oath-bound pact to save His people through Jesus Christ (see Gen. 3:15; 15:1-21).
 The gospel is centered on the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ as Savior
 First Coming: incarnation; perfect life; sin-atoning death; resurrection; ascension into heaven; sending of the Spirit at Pentecost.
 Second Coming: Return to earth in glory; resurrection of the just; final judgment; heirship into eternal glory.

 WCF 11.1 – What Is Justification? “Those whom God effectually calleth, He also freely justifieth”:
 Not by infusion but by pardoning their sins;
“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified by his grace as a gift, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, whom God put forward as a propitiation by his blood, to be received by faith” (Rom. 3:23-25).
 Not for the sake of any virtue in them or work by them, but for Christ’s sake alone;
“In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the
riches of his grace” (Eph. 1:7).
 Not by imputing faith itself, the act of believing, or any other evangelical obedience to them, as their righteousness;
“we know that a person is not justified by works of the law but through faith in Jesus Christ, so we also have believed in Christ Jesus, in order to be justified by faith in Christ and not by works of the law, because by works of the law no one will be justified” (Gal. 2:16; cf. Rom. 3:28).
 But by imputing the obedience and satisfaction of Christ unto them, they receiving and resting on Him and His righteousness by faith;
“For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God” (2 Cor. 5:21).
 Which faith they have not of themselves, it is the gift of God.
“For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, 9 not a result of works, so that no one may boast” (Eph. 2:8-9).

 Romans 4:4-5
 Works – Merit (his due) vs. Faith – Imputation
“Now to the one who works, his wages are not counted as a gift but as his due. And to the one who does not work but trusts him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is counted as righteousness” (Rom. 4:4-5).
 Westminster Shorter Catechism 33:
 “Justification is an act of God’s free grace, wherein he pardons all our sins, and accepts us as righteous in his sight only for the righteousness of Christ imputed to us, and received by faith alone.
▪ A divine act of free grace (Eph. 2:8-9).
▪ Pardon of all sins (Ps. 103:12; Heb. 8:12).
▪ Acceptance as righteous in God’s sight (Lk. 18:14; Heb. 12:23).
▪ Only for the righteousness of Christ imputed to us (2 Cor. 5:21; Rom. 5:18-19).
▪ Received by faith alone (Gal. 2:16; Rom. 3:24-26; Phil. 3:9).

 WSC 35: “Sanctification is the work of God’s free grace, whereby we are renewed in the whole man after the image of God, and are enabled more and more to die unto sin, and live unto righteousness.”
 Workvs.ActofGod’sgrace
 Renewal of the whole man after God’s image
 Increasingly enabled to die to sin and live to righteousness.
 Sanctification, like justification, is by grace and through faith
 Faith in justification is passive; in sanctification is active
“work out your own salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who works in you, both to will and to work for his good pleasure” (Phil. 2:12-13).
“Put to death therefore what is earthly in you: sexual immorality, impurity, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry” (Col. 3:5).
 Sanctification is practical and involves rejecting sin and obeying God’s law
“you have heard about him and were taught in him, as the truth is in Jesus, to put off your old self, which belongs to your former manner of life and is corrupt through deceitful desires, and to be renewed in the spirit of your minds, and to put on the new self, created after the likeness of God in true righteousness and holiness” (Eph. 4:21-24).
“Do not present your members to sin as instruments for unrighteousness, but present yourselves to God as those who have been brought from death to life, and your members to God as instruments for righteousness. 14 For sin will have no dominion over you, since you are not under law but under grace” (Rom. 6:13-14).
“Sexual immorality and all impurity or covetousness must not even be named among you, as is proper among saints. 4 Let there be no filthiness nor foolish talk nor crude joking, which are out of place, but instead let there be thanksgiving” (Eph. 5:3-4).
 Sanctification is directed by God’s law and empowered by the grace of the gospel
“For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation for all people, training us to renounce ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright, and godly lives in the present age, waiting for our blessed hope, the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ” (Titus 2:11-13).
“Jesus said, “Neither do I condemn you; go, and from now on sin no more” (Jn. 8:11).

 Distinct but never separate
 DualgracesandbenefitsfromunionwithChrist
 Sanctification begins with regeneration and is empowered by Christ’s ministry through the Holy Spirit
 Sanctification is Necessary to Salvation  The error of antinomianism
“On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’ And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness’” (Mt.7:22-23).
 Necessary as consequence not condition
“A healthy tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a diseased tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good
fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Thus you will recognize them by their fruits” (Mt. 7:18-20).  Good works inevitable and mandatory
“For you may be sure of this, that everyone who is sexually immoral or impure, or who is covetous ( that is, an idolater), has no inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God” (Eph. 5:5).
“For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them” (Eph. 2:10).
 Justification not based on Sanctification  The error of legalism
“Two men went up into the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. The Pharisee, standing by himself, prayed thus: ‘God, I thank you that I am not like other men, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even like this tax collector. I fast twice a week; I give tithes of all that I get.’ But the tax collector, standing far off, would not even lift up his eyes to heaven, but beat his breast, saying, ‘God, be merciful to me, a sinner!’ I tell you, this man went down to his house justified, rather than the other. For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, but the one who humbles himself will be exalted” (Luke 18:10-14).

 Sanctification does not automatically ensue from justification (though they must always go together).
 The error of Sonship theology
 Sanctification not caused by justification, but resulting by God’s grace through union with Christ.
 Sanctification advances by diligent application of the “means of grace.”
 Saving faith “ordinarily wrought by the ministry of the Word” and “is increased and strengthened” by the Word, prayer, and the sacraments
“And they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers” (Acts 2:42).
 Sanctified by the Word
▪ “Sanctify them in the truth; your word is truth” (Jn. 17:17; cf. Heb. 4:12; Eph. 5:26-27; Ps. 1:2-3)  Sanctified by Prayer
▪ “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus” (Phil. 4:6-7; Lk. 11:9, 13).
 Sanctified by the Sacraments
“The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not the communion of the blood of Christ? The bread which we break, is it not the communion of the body of Christ?” (1 Cor. 10:16, KJV).

 Great Statements of the Christian Life
 “I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me” (Gal. 2:19-20).
 “Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children. And walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God” (Eph. 5:1-2).
 “Those who are in the flesh cannot please God. You, however, are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if in fact the Spirit of God dwells in you. Anyone who does not have the Spirit of Christ does not belong to him. But if Christ is in you, although the body is dead because of sin, the Spirit is life because of righteousness. If the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, he who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through his Spirit who dwells in you” (Rom. 8:8-11).
 “See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are. The reason why the world does not know us is that it did not know him. Beloved, we are God’s children now, and what we will be has not yet appeared; but we know that when he appears we will be like him, because we shall see him as he is. And everyone who thus hopes in him purifies himself as he is pure” (1 John 3:1-3).

The Doctrine of Grace is Simple

 Defines the extent of sin’s corruption. Man is comprehensively corrupted by sin.
 The key issue is the spiritual inability of man in sin and his total need for sovereign grace.
 Some Key Texts
 Romans 3:10-12 as it is written: “None is righteous, no, not one; 11 no one understands; no one seeks for God. 12 All have turned aside; together they have become worthless; no one does good, not even one.”
 Ephesians 2:1-3 And you were dead in the trespasses and sins 2 in which you once walked, following the course of this world, following the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that is now at work in the sons of disobedience- 3 among whom we all once lived in the passions of our flesh, carrying out the desires of the body and the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, like the rest of mankind. “
 1 Corinthians 2:14 The natural person does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are folly to him, and he is not able to understand them because they are spiritually discerned.
 John 6:44 No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws him.

 Election = Choosing
 Teaches that God predestined some to be saved apart from any merit or condition on their part
 The elect are known only through a true and saving faith
 Key Texts:
 Deuteronomy 7:7-8 It was not because you were more in number than any other people that the LORD set his love on you and chose you, for you were the fewest of all peoples, 8 but it is because the LORD loves you
 Ephesians 1:4-6 even as he chose us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before him. In love 5 he predestined us for adoption through Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of his will, 6 to the praise of his glorious grace… Ephesians 1:11 In him we have obtained an inheritance, having been predestined according to the purpose of him who works all things according to the counsel of his will.
 Romans 9:10-16 And not only so, but also when Rebecca had conceived children by one man, our forefather Isaac, 11 though they were not yet born and had done nothing either good or bad- in order that God’s purpose of election might continue, not because of works but because of his call- 12 she was told, “The older will serve the younger.” 13 As it is written, “Jacob I loved, but Esau I hated.” 14 What shall we say then? Is there injustice on God’s part? By no means! 15 For he says to Moses, “I will have mercy on whom I have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I have compassion.” 16 So then it depends not on human will or exertion, but on God, who has mercy.
 Romans 9:19-21 You will say to me then, “Why does he still find fault? For who can resist his will?” 20 But who are you, O man, to answer back to God? Will what is molded say to its molder, “Why have you made me like this?” 21 Has the potter no right over the clay, to make out of the same lump one vessel for honored use and another for dishonorable use?

 Does not teach that no one can or does resist grace
 Teaches that in conversion we are born again by the sovereign,
irresistible working of God’s grace  KeyTexts
 John 6:37 All that the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never cast out.
 Matthew 9:9 As Jesus passed on from there, he saw a man called Matthew sitting at the tax booth, and he said to him,
“Follow me.” And he rose and followed him.
 Ezekiel 36:26-27 And I will give you a new heart, and a new spirit I will put within you. And I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. 27 And I will put my Spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes and be careful to obey my rules.

 Believers must persevere in faith to be saved.
 The elect will persevere in faith unto salvation
 Grounds the eternal security in the sovereign grace of God
 Key Texts:
 Colossians 1:22-23 he has now reconciled in his body of flesh by his death, in order to present you holy and blameless and above reproach before him, 23 if indeed you continue in the faith, stable and steadfast, not shifting from the hope of the gospel that you heard,
 Philippians 1:6 And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.
 1 Peter 1:3-5 According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, 4 to an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you, 5 who by God’s power are being guarded through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.

 Unconditional Election: The Father Ordaining
 Limited Atonement (Particular Redemption): The Son
Accomplishing
 IrresistibleGrace:TheSpiritApplying
 The Result = a sure and certain salvation for the elect (i.e.
those who truly believe), with all praise and glory belonging to our triune God

Overview of Covenant Theology

 An understanding of the Bible in terms of God’s covenants with man.
 The Bible’s own system of organization, structuring both unity and diversity
in Scripture.
 Usually contrasted with Dispensational Theology.
 Differ especially in terms of the relevance of the OT to Christians, and the relationship of OT Israel to NT Church.
 Relates God’s promises and commands to us in terms of the covenants.
 The Bible’s way of sealing our assurance of salvation blessing (Heb. 6:17-20).

 “A covenant is a bond in blood sovereignly administered” – O. Palmer Robertson
 Covenant as a Bond:
 Parity covenants (mutual compacts) in the Bible: Genesis 21:27, “So Abraham took sheep and oxen and gave them to Abimelech, and the two men made a covenant.”
 God’s covenants with man are not mutual compacts.
 Legal, relational, or both? The example of marriage.
 Covenant as pact or oath-bond.
 James Boice: covenant as “a solemn promise confirmed by an oath or sign.”

 Covenant as a bond in blood:
 Issues of life and death (Gen. 2:16-17; Gen. 15:17).
 Promises of blessing; obligations of obedience.
 Cutting a covenant.
 Eternal life the ultimate covenant blessing.
 Death the penalty for breaking God’s covenant: Heb. 9:22: “without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness of sins.” Mt. 14:24: “This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many.”
 Covenant as sovereignly administered:
 Not negotiated contracts: imposed by the sovereign King.
 Many covenants are bi-lateral in their functioning, but they are all unilateral in initiative.
 Covenant-making as a function of Lordship.

 To be in covenant with God is to benefit from the covenant (or federal) representation and headship of another.
 Through covenant theology, the Bible teaches not merely what is our obligation to God, but more centrally what God has done for our salvation, and how sinners are reconciled by God to Himself.
 To be in saving covenant with God is to be the recipient of God’s oath-bound promises.
 God has not only given his promises, but he has sovereignly bound himself with a covenant oath. Hebrews 6:17-19 tells us that God bound himself not to ensure his own faithfulness – which is hardly needed – but so that “we who have fled for refuge might have strong encouragement to hold fast to the hope set before us. We have this as a sure and steadfast anchor of the soul.”
 To be in covenant with God is to have received obligations from God as His people.
 “He has now reconciled [you] in his body of flesh by his death, in order to present you holy and blameless and above reproach before him, if indeed you continue in the faith, stable and steadfast, not shifting from the hope of the gospel” (Col. 1:22-23).
 To be in saving covenant with God is to enter an eternal relationship of love with God in Christ.
 “Behold, I am with you and will keep you wherever you go” (Gen. 28:15).
 “Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her, that he might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word, so that he might present the church to himself in splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, that she might be holy and without blemish” (Eph. 5:25-27).
 “As the bridegroom rejoices over the bride, so shall your God rejoice over you” (Isa. 62:5). Covenant

“I will put enmity between you and the woman and between your offspring and her offspring; he shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise his heel” (Gen. 3:15).
 AsSymbolizedtoAdamandEve:
“And the LORD God made for Adam and for his wife garments of skins and
clothed them.” (Gen. 3:21).
 As Inaugurated in God’s Covenant with Abraham:
“I will make you into a great nation, and I will bless you and make your name great, so that you will be a blessings… and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed” (Gen. 12:2-3).
 As Fulfilled by the Lord Jesus Christ:
“This cup that is our for you is the new covenant in my blood” (Lk. 22:20).

 God’s Covenant with Abraham  Covenant of Grace Inaugurated
“Now the Lord said to Abram, ‘God from your country and your kindred and your father’s house to the land that I will show you. And I will m ake of you a great nation, and I will bless you and make your name great, so that you will be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and him who dishonors you I will curse, and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed” (Gen. 12:1-3).
 The Mosaic Covenant
 Nation Covenant for the preservation of Israel and the Holy Seed
“Why then the law? It was added because of transgressions, until the offspring should come to whom the promise had been made, and it was put in place through angels by an intermediary” (Gal. 3:19)
 Israelite nation established on works principle; salvation offered on grace principle
“For the promise to Abraham and his offspring that he would be heir of the world did not come through the law but through the righteousness of faith” (Rom.
4:13).
“Now the law came in to increase the trespass, but where sin increased, grace abounded all the more, so that, as sin reigned in death, grace also might reign through righteousness leading to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord” (Rom. 5:20-21).”
 The Davidic Covenant

 Reason for New Covenant: Failure of Old Covenant
“Behold, the days are coming, declares the LORD, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel
and the house of Judah…” (Jer. 31:31).
“For they did not continue in my covenant, and so I showed no concern for them, declares the Lord” (Heb.

 Promise #1: Forgiveness
“For I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more” (Jer. 31:34).

 Whatthelawcouldnotdo,theHolySpiritdoes(Rom.8:2-4;Eze.36:25-27).
 Promise #3: Knowledge of God
“No longer shall each one teach his neighbor and each his brother, saying, ‘Know the Lord,’ for they shall all know me, from the least of them to the greatest, declares the Lord” (Jer. 31:34).
 Whatwasformerlytrueoftheprophets(Num.11:29;Acts2:16-18),priests(Heb.10:19-22),andkings(Rom. 8:14, 17) is now true of all Christians.
 God’s eternal covenant aim is accomplished: “I will be their God, and they shall be my people” (Jer. 31:33).

Why we baptize covenant children (not just infants):
 Continuity between circumcision and baptism (Col. 2:11-12).
 OT-NT continuity
“I will be your God and the God of your children after you” (Gen. 17:7; Ex. 19:5, 6; Dt. 7:6, 14:2; Jer. 31:33).
“For the promise is for you and for your children” (Acts 2:39).
“Every male throughout your generations, whether born in your house or bought with your money from any foreigner who is not of your offspring, both he who is born in your house and he who is bought with your money shall surely be circumcised” (Gen. 17:12-13).
 Principle of Covenant Representation
 Jesus’ command to bring little children
“‘Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.’ When he had placed his hands on them, he went on from there” (Mt. 19:14).
 Children of believers accountable as covenant members (Eph. 6:1, Col. 3:20- 21).
 Children of believers are holy (1 Cor. 7:14).
 Household baptisms in the NT (Acts 16:15, 33-34; 1 Cor. 1:16)

 The covenant community should contrast starkly with the surrounding world.
 The covenant community is a community of the Spirit.
 The church is a community of wondrous diversity.
 The covenant community is built by the Word and prayer.
 The covenant community is led by Spirit-empowered men.
 The covenant community is composed of fully responsible members.

5 Points of TULIP

Total Depravity

Because of the fall, man is unable of himself to savingly believe the gospel. The sinner is dead, blind, and deaf to the things of God; his heart is deceitful and desperately corrupt. His will is not free, it is in bondage to his evil nature; therefore, he will not–indeed he cannot–choose good over evil in the spiritual realm. Consequently, it takes much more than the Spirit’s assistance to bring a sinner to Christ–it takes regeneration by which the Spirit makes the sinner alive and gives him a new nature. Faith is not something man contributes to salvation but is itself a part of God’s gift of salvation–it is God’s gift to the sinner, not the sinner’s gift to God.

(Genesis 2:15-17, Romans 5:12, Psalm 51:5, 1 Corinthians 2:14, Romans 3:10-18, Jeremiah 17:9, John 6:44, Ephesians 2:1-10)

Unconditional Election

God’s choice of certain individuals unto salvation before the foundation of the world rested solely in His own sovereign will. His choice of particular sinners was not based on any foreseen response or obedience on their part, such as faith, repentance, etc. On the contrary, God gives faith and repentance to each individual whom He selected. These acts are the result, not the cause of God’s choice. Election therefore was not determined by or conditioned upon any virtuous quality or act foreseen in man. Those whom God sovereignly elected He brings through the power of the Spirit to a willing acceptance of Christ. Thus God’s choice of the sinner, not the sinner’s choice of Christ, is the ultimate cause of salvation.

(Romans 9:10-21, Ephesians 1:4-11, Ephesians 2:4-10, Romans 8:29-30, Acts 11:18, Acts 13:48)

Limited Atonement

Christ’s redeeming work was intended to save the elect only and actually secured salvation for them. His death was a substitutionary endurance of the penalty of sin in the place of certain specified sinners. In addition to putting away the sins of His people, Christ’s redemption secured everything necessary for their salvation, including faith which united them to Him. The gift of faith is infallibly applied by the Spirit to all for whom Christ died, thereby guaranteeing their salvation.

(Matthew 1:21, Romans 5:12-21, Romans 3:21-26, Ephesians 2:8-10, Titus 3:5-6, Philippians 1:6, John 10:11-30, John 17:6-12, Romans 8:28-30, John 6:44, Acts 20:28)

Irresistible Grace

In addition to the outward general call to salvation which is made to everyone who hears the gospel, the Holy Spirit extends to the elect a special inward call that inevitably brings them to salvation. The external call (which is made to all without distinction) can be, and often is, rejected; whereas the internal call (which is made only to the elect) cannot be rejected, it always results in conversion. By means of this special call the Spirit irresistibly draws sinners to Christ. He is not limited in His work of applying salvation by man’s will, nor is He dependent upon man’s cooperation for success. The Spirit graciously causes the elect sinner to cooperate, to believe, to repent, to come freely and willingly to Christ. God’s grace, therefore, is invincible; it never fails to result in the salvation of those to whom it is extended.

(John 3:16, Matthew 22:14, Acts 17:29-31, Matthew 23:37-39, John 6:44, Romans 8:28-30, John 1:12-13, John 3:1-8, Ephesians 2:8-10)

Perseverance of the Saints

All who were chosen by God, redeemed by Christ, and given faith by the Spirit are eternally saved. They are kept in faith by the power of Almighty God and thus persevere to the end.

(John 3:16, John 6:35-40, John 6:44, Philippians 1:6, Philippians 2:12-13, Jude 24-25, Ephesians 1:13-14, Romans 8:28-30, Romans 8:35-39)

Dealing with the Truth

You try to encourage some believers and ask them to help explain where you’re struggling with inconsistencies but they act like jerks and boot you. You can’t warn of anything anymore because it all has to sound encouraging. We the church can dish out the hard truths to the world but can’t deal with the skeletons in our closet or look at reality for what it really is if it doesn’t fit the narrative we want so sweep it under the rug. And there’s no reason ever to admit maybe we missed it a bit ourselves somewhere it’s just run head on thinking all the persecution is a result of suffering for Christ when some is just reaping what we sown knowing how many out there have been foolishly stoning the world when they have fat beams sticking out of their own eyes. Then we wonder why nobody wants to listen well we even kill our own while judging world at the same time no wonder there’s so much confusion. Tragically, there been watchmen throughout the church warning of things to come where some correction was needed and how to navigate through it but because it requires some change and responsibility they’re shot down because we need that political power and now people keep sitting holding onto the chairs waiting for the next future prediction from those who keep hitting and missing just so they can keep loving their life in this world. It’s crazy because if you know it’s a trap and you’re trying to help them see we might be playing into this thing they don’t want to hear they would rather argue debate living in their heads like we’ve been doing for years debate debate debate. Seriously, my favorites are those what to dish the hard truths to the world but when you spin one back on them their cognitive dissonance kicks in and they’re all offended and they’ll do everything they can to justify it acting like the world.

Left and Right Wing Paradigm

Time to break free from this left and right wing paradigm of duality checkers game and recognize the real enemy the god of this world the prince of the air has been playing chess and all the moves he’s making is written in history and we’ve been warned of them so people need to stop being naïve and pay attention putting back on the crown because the politics of this world don’t deserve to wear it, especially it’s media mouthpiece spewing wicked propaganda, and make sure no one takes it. So come out of Babylon and start flipping tables turning the world upside down we need do something. Christ is King! Remember the government rest on his shoulders and he’s the head of the body. The spirit of prophecy is the testimony of Yahshua Jesus Christ keeping his commandments. As he was in the world so are we to be and remember, he said, “the prince of the air has nothing in me” so it’s time to eat his flesh and drink his blood. Go fast in the wilderness and come out with power we’re gonna need it.

Men and Commitment

There is a myth about men that they are afraid of commitment, men leave too early in relationships. The reason I say myth is because it isn’t true. It goes way deeper than that. We don’t stop and ask WHY, we are too quick to judge and label. Mostly from wounding. Men have fear of deep connection and intimacy, NOT commitment. We are indoctrinated with ‘ideals’ of MAN, what man is supposed to be like and if men don’t live up to this ideal then it’s ‘weak’. Forgetting the deeper human desire for deep connection and intimacy. We are all relational beings but we separate, misunderstand and assume from old paradigms and experiences. Not doing our own work around these deeper parts of ourselves and become hardened and overly self protective. Men carry emotional wounds just like women do. Call them universal masculine wounds/feminine wounds. For men the vulnerability and to allow themselves to be emotional can feel devastating. It can go against the very ideal we are given of what a man is supposed to be. It can feel emasculating to go to those deeper places for healing, to soften, to drop the armour and lead with the heart wide open. That’s not ‘manly’, it’s weak right. Wrong, in fact it’s one of the bravest and courageous things a man can do. (That anyone can do) TO DROP THE ARMOUR. And show up in the world in his healthy masculine that the world needs more than ever. For himself, to be the example for other men, to give them permission to do the same, for the feminine and to give our children what we were missing from generations that simply just didn’t know any better. Forget fault, forget blame. Ownership and individual responsibility for self healing is key to get what you really want. Deeper connection and intimacy in ALL areas.

The Church is becoming voiceless

Regardless of the outcome this has taught me the need for deep rooted training in Christianity.

Why has the church become voiceless, shy, timid, fearful, and non-influential? I’ll tell you why:

-The church bought into the “two kingdom” lie.
-The church bought into a worldview that has us losing the fight on earth.
-The church has shallow teaching beyond salvation.
-The church is not teaching Christians to live ALL OF LIFE to the GLORY OF CHRIST.
-The church is not equipping disciples to be salt and light on earth.
-The church is letting their children become indoctrinated.
-The church is not impacting their immediate locations.
-The church has lost its identity.
-The church has failed to see the Lordship of Christ.
-The church is entertaining rather than training spiritual soldiers.
-The church stopped preaching the full counsel of God and the powerful gospel that can save to the uttermost.

Christ has all authority on earth and we’re called to make “earth as it is in heaven.”

Lord, give your people vision of a gospel future and send forth your Spirit to make it happen!

The Rise of The Beta-Male, Breeding Out The Rebels

One of the biggest threats to the controlling forces on the planet is the strong male, which is why they have been targeted throughout history. The cows (female cattle) are more easily led to the slaughter house when the bull (male cattle) is not there to wreak havoc.

In the past, some of the strongest and bravest males have been killed off in wars. These men willingly and courageously went to battle in the belief that they were defending their country.

Nowadays the only real action most men take is concerning business/financial endeavours. Outside of their never-ending self-serving pursuits of wealth and material acquisition, most men today are slumped on the sofa, whilst being drip-fed propaganda, addicted to sport, watching Netflix or playing video games.

Men are made to be docile, self-serving, effeminate and stripped of their ultimate masculine instinct to ‘pick up the sword’ and defend against external threats.

This attack on masculinity is achieved through a number of means, not least through biological/hormonal manipulation.

Men are being fed increasing amounts of estrogen, far surpassing the natural and healthy levels. This estrogen is derived from a number of sources, not least alcohol (particularly beer; hence the ‘beer belly’). Beer is deemed to be ‘a man’s drink’ yet the irony is that it emasculates men (both physically and emotionally).

Soy is another source of estrogen and is present in many modern day foods (including many meat substitutes – ties into the ‘meatless agenda’). Plastic also contains estrogen, which is leaked into food and drinks through various sources (not least through foods/drinks packed with BPA)

Besides the biological and emotional impact of alcohol, it also makes men more passive and docile, stripping them of their willpower and natural male instincts. Other biological and chemical warfare techniques (Fluoride, pharmaceuticals, EMFs etc.) suppress willpower further and alter the natural biological expression of both men and women.

There is also a war on testosterone, which can be viewed as the ‘will hormone’ or ‘drive hormone’. Low testosterone destroys motivation, drive, vitality and willpower. It also emasculates males. The social engineers purposely attack this hormone as a means to stifle opposition, not least through diet and through spiking both cortisol and estrogen, which both have an inverse correlation with testosterone – as estrogen/cortisol go up, testosterone drops).

Hollywood, celebrity/popular culture and the fashion industry also play their part in feminizing men, by glorifying the beta male look. Men who do choose to adopt the ‘typical masculine’ look (i.e through strengthening up physically in the gym) often do so for superficial reasons and a way to gain social approval for ‘the gram’.

Most men are fearful of rebellion and have no sense of the divine masculine principle of self-defence and their inherent right to rebel against unjust acts of authority and control. This has been noticeably apparent in the covid ‘pandemic’, where most men have blindly conformed to orders and made no effort to rebel against obvious threats to our collective freedom. Even those men who can see beyond the lies and deception, choose to stay silent, opting for social approval and comfort over integrity.

There are many men who like to see themselves as masculine (muscular, business success, high social standing) yet will gladly muzzle themselves whilst wearing their lavish suits and increasingly effeminate gym attire.

Neo-feminism and cultural programming has also created a situation where men are demeaned and emasculated. Sadly, women these days do not provide sufficient motivation for male rebellion. Men who display anger of any kind (including righteous anger) tend to be looked upon scornfully by the average conditioned woman (who view all kinds of anger as ‘negative’).

A large chunk of women have been conditioned to be attracted to the corporate ‘suit and tie guy’, because he is seen as a man of ‘long-term’ value (because he has money). Conversely, a rebellious male is viewed as divisive and (ironically) a threat to their ‘stability’. Women are also worried of the social consequences of being in partnership with a man who acts in opposition to the societal norm.

Submissive men, in fear of being ostracized and rejected by women, settle instead for passiveness and apathy, even in the face of great tyranny. The rebellious spirit has been completely stifled out of them.

The average man today is not much different to a castrated bull (an Ox) who becomes completely controllable and subservient when robbed of their manhood. What we are left with is cowardly, fearful and obedient imitations of men, who will gladly sit by idly whilst tyranny comes knocking on the door.

The remedy for this isn’t a polarizarion towards the other extreme (the hyper-masculine alpha male). Whilst physical strength was one of the greatest weapons in the past, today this is just as much a psychological and spiritual war, so it requires development on all levels.

The Church and Being Correct

The Church is becoming more and more politically incorrect in our current culture. What a far cry this is from the founders, their intentions, and their wisdom in drafting our founding documents.
The politically correct of today who claim to be on the ‘right side of history’ want to; rewrite the history, the documents, and the entire country into a world of elites over the non-elites.
I have been and will continue to be politically incorrect because politics, while they have a place, are not the ultimate goal or end of what a man’s life ought to be.
We were created by God, for God, and for His glory. Therefore, our chief end/purpose in life is to glorify Him and enjoy Him, forever.
The politically correct will merely enjoy a passing and fading place in the world, but occupy nothing at all in the world that is to come.
On the other hand, those who trust themselves completely to Christ over the culture will enjoy the world that is to come when after this passing and fading one has been vaporized.
Belief in Jesus is; all that is required, the total of all that is required, and is absolutely required. There are no; ands, ifs, or buts about it.

Spiritual Warfare is not a Game

Disclaimer Just for the record: True Spiritual Warfare is not a game. People can be hurt as a result of poor wisdom on the part of someone who is a novice. We do not suggest you go out and hurt people as a result of anything you read on this site. It is not something to be taken lightly nor do we suggest you try to deliver children or cause anyone irreparable harm. Ask yourself what is your intention? Do you know the true doctrine of salvation preached by the Apostles? Many call themselves Apostles but are very far from such a title. Jesus doesn’t play around and you can be sure that demonic spirits do not either. You also need to be able to discern the demonic from mental illiness. The brain is an organ and it can have issues as a result of biological things or inherited things. If you have no training in such leave it alone. If you are not led by the Holy Ghost which never contradicts the Bible then you are led by self or the devil speaking to your mind to discredit the true message of salvation.Casting demons out of people will not make you the enemies best friend so be aware you have to live a more dedicated life if this is your call. The enemy will try to harm you. We have had people go for butcher knives during deliverance. Do not use someone’s home and it’s best not in front of children because these things curse and day filthy things and even threaten the children in the room. If you cannot take authority or have not worked in this area then take classes and work with a team and become experienced. We are training our new church team to be prepared. You must be sin free and live a life removed from sin. Those who are shallow in the Word will have a problem convincing the enemy to leave. If you are sensitive and words hurt your feelings then you are not prepared for this. However coming work with us as a team will sober you up I assure you. If you are called to do such then you will live the concecrated life and learn to protect yourself. Even the 70 in the gospels went out by pairs never alone. I Peter 5:
8 ¶ Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:
9 Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.

Civil Law and God’s Law

‘Those who need magistrates to maintain order confess their own fears and faults, walk by sight, and rely on the providence of some false god. Most importantly, they enjoy his spoils extracted from the toil of his neighbor: whether it be through welfare, healthcare, protection, or “justice.” They mirror the sluggish and selfish Israelites at the end of their prosperity, tiring of the responsibility inherent in dominion: “give us a king to rule over us.”

“Civil law stems from Babylon and is inquisitorial, encouraging and requiring the state’s violation of one’s freedom of conscience. This ever-present trait arises from the Babylonian system’s dependence upon the priest’s judicial power to examine its subjects in the Babylonian deity’s name. In theory, the Babylonian deity, using various names worldwide and personified in the state or its demagogue, invested his priests with the power to examine the consciences of devotees by whatever means necessary, granting absolution or condemnation according to their imperious pleasure. By entrusting themselves to a totalitarian state, the Babylonian settlers established statism.” (Brent Allan Winters. Excellence of the Common Law: Compared and Contrasted with Civil Law in Light of History, Nature and Scripture)

It is the faithless such as these who try to take the Kingdom by force and make it suffer violence, and it is these who have the Kingdom taken from them, and given to those who would produce the fruits thereof: the anarchists who demand no benefactors who exercise authority, but desire to serve their neighbor in matters of welfare, healthcare, protection and justice, not hewn together in some bureaucratic corral, but stacked upon each other in the adhocracy bound together in faith, by hope, and through charity in accordance with the message of the Gospel.’

Sinner or Saint

I was watching an episode of one of my favorite shows last night from 1999. In the episode, the doctor who was playing the part of the town priest referred to someone in the congregation as “sinner”. My first thought, “and that’s why we have people in the Body of Christ stuck in a death mentality and not a mentality of life”.

We have denominations in the church that only refer to people and it’s congregants as “sinners” instead of “saints”. They fail to realize and understand that Paul spoke about us becoming saints; going from sinner to saint. How would you feel if your Pastor or someone of Clergy only referred to you as a sinner? That spreads negativity and death, instead of knowing that each of us are to be going through the transformation via Holy Spirit. We are saints.

If we stay stuck in the sinner mentality, we will never be able to improve ourselves. But if we have a “saint” mentality, we will always be working on improving ourselves and removing the bad habits that have afflicted us for far too long. And don’t give me the, “oh you’re just trying to appease people’s feelings by not calling them bad things”. No! It is a well known and proven fact that words are powerful and can literally kill. So why not change your wording and mindset to something positive and watch things change and play out in front of your eyes. See the people go from sinner to saint in front of your eyes as the transformation via Holy Spirit plays out in their life.

The Five Fold Ministry

1.Apostle – Governs

  1. Prophet – Guides
  2. Evangelist – Gathers
  3. Pastor – Guards
  4. Teacher – Grounds
    The Church NOW and Today needs the full function and operation of the full fivefold in accordance with the WORD.
    May We identify and encourage those whom God has given the grace and anointing for such.

THE FIVE FOLD MINISTRY
The Apostle – Leads
The Prophet – Speaks
The Teacher – Equips
The Evangelist – Proclaims
The Pastor – Cares
We need all for our time like never before. Divinely called,appointed and anointed fivefold Ministers.

THE FIVE FOLD MINISTRY

  1. Apostle – Visionary Strategist
  2. Prophet – Spiritual Advisor
  3. Teacher – Logical Thinker/Implementer
  4. Evangelist – Persuasive Communicator
  5. Pastor – Human Resource Counselor
    The Gifts and ministry of the Holy Spirit work in manifold ways and is not limited to a one approach. The Bible talks about the seven spirits yet refers to one and the same Spirit manifesting His completeness in different ways.
    Some are open to revelation but not learning or teaching. The humble is open to learning, education and revelation.

THE FIVE FOLD MINISTRY
Apostle – Long-Sight
Prophet – Foresight
Evangelist – Hindsight
Teacher – Insight
Pastor – Oversight
VISION means to SEE. All those in the fivefold ministry must have a vision or see something in the area of their ministries. Spiritual sight is the ability to see by revelation what needs to be done when and how. We all need vision to do His work effectively.

THE FIVE FOLD MINISTRY
Apostle – Mission
Prophet – Vision
Evangelist – Commission
Pastor – Compassion
Teacher – Passion
We need a sense of Mission and Commission. We need a sense of vision and passion with Compassion to do effectively the task before us.

(check Ephesians 4:13)

Bible verses:
“And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of CHRIST: Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of CHRIST: ” -Ephesians 4:11-13

Trauma-Based Mind Control

What we are witnessing right now is the biggest trauma-based mind control experiment the world has ever seen. If you can traumatize people and get them disconnected from their body and emotions, you can disconnect them from their true self/essence/infinite creative potential. The only chance they have left to change the timelines right now is to turn humanity into a bunch of soulless out-of-body zombies, or into an animal state where most of the time that human is only guided by primary emotions like fear, hunger, lust, and thirst. When functioning in states like this, humans are much easier to brainwash and control.

The fact that the cabal (or whatever you want to call the occult hostile forces who control the people in power) are attempting such an extreme experiment shows us how desperate they have gotten.Never let anyone or anything disconnect you from your heart, your emotions, and your spirit, as that is the primary aim of these forces who are hostile to the human spirit and our human family. Remember to take any still moments you find during this time of transition to connect to your true self, as your relationship to God/Source/Emptiness/or whatever you would like to call this stream of infinite consciousness is the most important one of your life. The more we can align with forces larger than our small personality self, the easier we can live our lives in alignment with God’s will. It is God’s will we are seeing being enacted on the world stage right now. It is a type of divine intervention, although, to many, that may not become obvious to them for years to come.

There IS a great awakening happening here, and this is a long journey because it is the *collective* consciousness that must be raised. We may not see the impact of these times for decades to come. In the meantime, our biggest work to do is to align with these larger cosmic forces that are guiding us and ride the wave of these timelines shifting. As we become God-sourced beings, rather than finding refuge in materialism, or the temporarily and constantly changing world, the madness, the illusions, and the chaos, samsara, we can lift others up as well as we help those who are just waking up learn how to ride the wave too.
