If we believe that there is a God and that he created us in his image, then finding out who this God is and who he wants us to be, should be our passion and our leitmotif.

The Kingdom of Heaven can be illustrated by the story of a king who prepared a great wedding feast for his Son. When the banquet was ready, he sent his servants to notify those who were invited. But they all refused to come ! ...   Jesus, in Matthew 22: 1-3


 

Why do we feel so often alone and unhappy in life, frustrated, unsatisfied, when clearly the created world contains all that is necessary for our happiness?  Sometimes, it would seem that if only we could join with the right people, we would see the projects that are important to us succeed and experience a lasting fulfilment together. Why aren't things as we imagined, and why are they never definitively ours? Who is chasing us and our loved ones to put us through trials that are so contrary to our sensibility? How could we influence the course of the events and be a little more in control of our destiny? … There are no easy answers to these questions, and if someone came to offer you effortless happiness, you would soon see it as one of those sales pitches that enrich no one but the merchants of happiness. There is nevertheless a path that leads to happiness. Maybe not exactly in the form we had imagined, but a deep, lasting and shared happiness, based on everlasting values. …

This happiness comes first and foremost from our adherence to a certain reality, and it is a state of mind. “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future”. But now, even if God makes this promise of happiness to us through the prophet Jeremiah, Jesus does not hide from us that we have an enemy whose intentions are quite different. This enemy must be identified, and Jesus teaches us how we can thwart his plans. Happiness cannot be obtained through passiveness.

“I am the gate; whoever enters through me will be saved. They will come in and go out, and find pasture. The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep”. John 10: 9-11. Give everything to God and even our own life, and do it with love: this is the invitation that God makes us to thwart the plans of a world that wants to take everything from us and even our identity. Because in the same measure that we give ourselves to him, God also gives himself to us, and in his wisdom he has placed in every life that is cast into the earth, the seed of an eternal and glorious life. What this means, we might not know yet. But the events to come will show it to us.

God invites us to let ourselves be led by him in the knowledge of his person, a knowledge that opens the door for us to these green pastures that are the promises of happiness and peace that he made to us. Jeremiah continues, “Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. I will be found by you,” declares the Lord, “and will bring you back from captivity.”

 

 

 

The purpose of this sharing is to make you wish to know more about this God who loves you beyond anything you can imagine, and who has a grand plan for your life.

 

 

Set the captives free

This morning as I was going through the house, I heard a familiar wing flapping coming from de veranda. A young tit had entered by the open door, probably wanting to explore that place, and had soon found itself disoriented by the many windows. This wing flapping had not escaped our cat that I saw in the blink of an eye, ignoring my command and moving swiftly to the noise. I had to run to catch it and lock it in another room. It was a little upset because I had made it miss a snack and the highlight of its day, but it will get over it. Back in the place, I opened the door wide and went in and out so the bird could watch me and learn, and then I stepped back. But instead of flying to the door, the birdie was relentlessly trying to make it's way through the window from a concealed place behind the plants. To avoid its exhaustion and possible injuries, I had to catch it and then I placed it carefully on a table outside, where it could easily take off once in possession of it's senses. It stayed there for a good five minutes, arranging its feathers, watching the sky, which made me a little worried for the state of its brain and concerned that some bigger bird would notice it and take advantage of the situation. I had also heard how they break the will of the elephants by tying them with solid chains and beating them for days without food. Then, when the elephant has learned that whatever his strength and his anger, he can't break free from the tyranny of its masters, they can tie it with a simple rope and it will stay obediently at their service for all his life. Perhaps the shocked little bird now imagined a prison of glass all around it. But a breeze brought it back to reality and it finally flew to a nearby tree. You know that Jesus has commanded us to set the captives free. What kind of things are we to be free from? Illness, addictions, low self-esteem, are among the most obvious. Anything we can't get past becomes a prison, and the lures and traps of this world are devious and sophisticated and among them there are so many misconceptions of God. How do we do what Jesus asked of us? By jumping on distraught people and imprisoning them in our church or in a religion? In times to come, a lot of people are going to feel lost and helpless, and I'm afraid there will be a lot of marauding cats too. No… sorry cats, sorry dogs and wolves in sheep skin, lost people are no snack for you. What we are asked is to behave like sons of God in order to show them where the door is, but sometimes also to tell them the whole truth in love. And then it's up to them to make a decision and take off. Jesus is the door, and anyone coming to him should also pass through him and be released into green pastures, he said. Even Jesus who also teamed with his Father to create us – well, this God is not an owner of slaves. He expects our reciprocity, but God has never forced anyone to love him in return for the good he does to us. The world will soon be informed of the rise of a new religion. The leaders of that religion will call on every string of our sensibility to make us fall into their narrow vision. For even with their arms stretched wide open to the whole world, the new religion is nothing but the old religion revamped, whose iron fist hidden in a velvet glove is still pitted against the true God. It is shunt to shimmering gods and goddesses in golden paint on dust, and ultimately does not lead us to the open door, that is to say to the Jesus who is both our Messiah and our God.

“All who have come before me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep have not listened to them. I am the gate; whoever enters through me will be saved. They will come in and go out, and find pasture. The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full”.  John 10:8-10

 

 

Romans 8 :

The Revelation of the Sons of God.

Are we all the children of God? In a generic sense, probably. But can we say that we are his sons and daughters? I love this young pastor : Art Thomas. I hope his positions are clear about Bethel Church and its baptism of fire which is part of their very controversial “School of the Supernatural”, because he delivers exceptional messages on divine healing. And he is my hero when it comes to living and demonstrating the topic of this chapter. His name may have been wrongly associated with this crowded but misguided church – heresy hunters can be tiring at times, as can some proselytes – we all err on the side of things. For example, I just discovered a new video on YT. Someone had taken the story of the life of young Akiane Kramarik, and had added a translation into French. I had added it to my links right away, but then listened to the video until the end, and I jumped from my chair when I realized that this gentleman was hijacking the content of this video for the profit, not of Him who is the object of her quest: Jesus the Christ, nor even of the person concerned. But he shamelessly made the apology of the muse of the counterfeit religion, the Virgin, Astarte, the queen of heaven, a mythical figure whom we know has deceived Eve in the garden through the serpent, and who now has usurped the identity of the woman who gave birth to Jesus, to lead millions of Christians into the dead end of a forbidden devotion… We live in a strange world among strange people, and if I just offended you unintentionally, I take it all – it's for your own good. See, the Bible teaches that our communion is with the Father and with His Son. It never mentions a mother, or when it does, it is generally to warn us against some couterfeit religion. Please understand that it is not by misogyny, but it is because God is for us a father and a mother, and we need to tear down the concept of the Olympian gods that has permeated Christianity. But coming back to Art Thomas, he mentioned in a great message that I recommend you listen to that, according to a survey, thirty percent of evangelical Christians do not believe that Jesus is God, and that number even climbs to seventy-five percent when it comes to believing that Yeshua is a created being, like the angels. No wonder, then, that these people also don't believe in what they are in Christ. If they were aware of who they are, they wouldn't need an angel of light (*), or heresy hunters, or even a super-apostle, to be told who they can get to trust or not to trust. “The man who has the Spirit judges everything and he himself is not judged by anyone”. Becoming sons and daughters of God indeed requires this learning of the discernment of spirits and the emancipation from the rudimentary principles of the world.

The foundation of the Christian faith is not a dogma, a church, a religion or even a discipline acquired through the teachings of some apostle. Jesus said: “You study the Scriptures diligently because you think that in them you have eternal life. These are the very Scriptures that testify about me, yet you refuse to come to me to have life.” I once shared with a friend what I had come to understand from reading the New Testament. I was a fresh convert at the time, I had sought God on my own and I was still a stranger to the political correctness that befits in Christian circles. I smoked, swore, drove a small sports car and sometimes lied to hide the shameful habits I couldn't shake. Unlike probably most of you, I had my share of contradictions. But, I was all fired up as they say, enthusiastic about the new horizons that opened up to me as God gradually revealed himself through my readings from the Bible, and in fact quite proud of my discoveries. Looking for other believers to share common experiences with, this friend had crossed my path. He had been in the evangelical world for a long time and had even studied theology. In his eyes, my double life was an open book that probably spoke louder than my words. So when I proudly announced him that I had discovered through my reading that we are all sons of God – a real revolution for a child of Catholics, even renegade to his tradition, he was quick to calm my ardour. “We are only adopted sons,” he explained. And it is true that our translations of the Bible generally mentions that “in Jesus, God elected us before the foundation of the world, so that we may be holy and blameless before him, having predestined us in his love to be his adopted children by Jesus Christ, according to the good pleasure of his will”. Ephesians 1.

This correction was undoubtedly deserved, but it had broken me in my tracks. …

From that theological confrontation, remained the vague impression that this adoption was to be deserved by making act of holiness. Even though I owe it to this friend's prayer that I was definitely rid of the urge to smoke, I was again confronted with this religious spirit of control, which had made me move away from Catholicism in the first place. It then took me many years of wrestling with doubt, of fasting, self-exorcism attempts and a yo-yo spiritual life where I depended on other people for my substance, experiencing some surges almost immediately followed by long periods of stagnation in a semi-depressive doldrums from which I could not extricate myself, to finally understand that, like many Christians, I had tackled the problem from the wrong end. Truth is that we are born in a sin nature and we cannot shake sin as long as we see ourselves as sinners. If you want to control a snake, you need to grab its head, not its tail. The Bible says of Christ that he crushed the head of the serpent, and Christ himself asserts that those who believe in him will walk on snakes and scorpions, mostly figuratively speaking I reassure you, without them being able to do them any harm. I recommend on this subject a teaching from Andrew Wommack that I put in link here. So my first impression was the right one : We are the sons of God from the very moment we decide to take God's offer to become his sons. It is a change of mindset, and it is this status obtained by faith that gives us the power to overcome the vagaries of our inherited nature. “For you are all sons of God through trusting in Messiah Yeshua. For all of you who were immersed in Messiah have clothed yourselves with Messiah. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female – for you are all one in Messiah Yeshua. And if you belong to Messiah, then you are Abraham’s seed – heirs according to the promise” says Paul to the Galatians. The fact that we recognize that Jesus is the Son of God, but also of believing in what we have become from the moment Jesus reconnected us with our God, opens the door to our spiritual freedom and makes us inherit from all the promises of God. Religion has accustomed us to remaining forever under the authority of a pyramidal order ultimately controlled by the devil. But God made us sit in spiritual places with Christ, writes also the apostle Paul to the Ephesians. God only placed two conditions on us to be considered by him as his sons and daughters : We must decide to be constantly led by his Spirit, according to Romans 8, which implies that we remain filled with him and His Word, and not with the vanity of our life in this world, and we must demonstrate what we believe we now are, by living and acting as peace craftsmen, as Jesus says in Matthew 5:9. So again, God does not expect us to rise to him, but he has joined us in our weakness by placing his Spirit in us as our companion for this trip, so that, inhabited by him, we behave naturally like his sons and daughters and not as helpless sinners or as religious beggars.

With its numerous connotations, the word “adoption” comes sometimes like a shadow in the picture. But the word υιοθεσια (Huiothesia), which was translated by “adoption” for lack of a more adequate word in our Western languages, is not at all depreciating in the sense in which the Bible uses it. It is made up of the roots Huios (son) and Tithemi (placing). According to a commentary, this word is only used five times in the Bible, by Paul, in reference to our position as joint heirs within the promises made by God to Abraham. In John 8, Jesus gives us some explanations which come to enlighten God's project. The inheritance promised to Abraham was the accession of his seed to the same promises that he had made to him. God had promised Abraham that, because he had believed, he would be blessed and his name would be famous. He also would become – and his seed after him –, a source of blessing. His seed would be like the sand of the sea or the stars of heaven that no one can count, and God would put them in possession of foreign territories, “a land of the west where milk and honey flows”. Abraham is the embodiment of the principle that “if you believe, you will see the glory of God”. It is on this principle of the “faith that brings about things which are not into existence”, the very principle God had already used to create our world, that God founded the covenant he made with Abraham and with his descendants. God had however specified that in order to inherit the promises, no mixture would be allowed with man's merit and own achievements. The children of the handmaid (the law, or the religion) would not inherit with those of the free woman (the faith and the Spirit).

It is also by virtue of the faith that God raised up another seed to Abraham, a seed taken from the foreign world, won to Abraham by Christ. Peter said, “Be sorry for your sins and turn from them and be baptised in the name of Jesus Christ, and your sins will be forgiven. You will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. This promise is to you and your children. It is to all people everywhere. It is to as many as the Lord our God will call.”  Joined to the children of Israel, these two peoples are called to form one. The heir is like the servant as long as he is a child, says Jesus. But the servant does not stay forever in the house, while the son inherits everything. In another passage in the Bible, Paul says that we were placed under the law as under a tutor. A more descriptive translation than the word “adoption” would therefore be : “our placement in the position of sons, with the immediate change of our hearts, which will be followed later by that of our bodies, so that glorious, they also correspond to our new identity of sons of God”. But in John 8, the masters and teachers of the law react to Jesus' offer to set them free : “We are no one's servants. We are the seed of Abraham and have one father : God, for we are not illegitimate children”. The fact that Jesus was born without a father had not escaped them. Their sarcasm is fair game since Jesus had suggested that they had for father the one who inspired them all their bad thoughts and their murders, that is to say the devil. But Jesus knew his Father perfectly. As he means it, the Father is the one who generates us spiritually and who indwells us. What was true for Jesus is also true for us. After his resurrection, he said to Mary of Magdala: “Go and find my brothers and tell them that I am ascending to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God”. God does not adopt us as strangers to his race or to his house, or as servants, or even as pets. But from “prodigal” sons that we were, he dresses us in a new robe and puts the ring of his authority on our finger. He kills the fattened calf for us, for what it may mean to everyone. God perfects us by making us reborn of his Spirit, to position us in a dominant manner in spiritual places, while he sets us back into his redeemed family. This found again identity is essential. When we read the Bible, we realize that God has many children, but his great sorrow is that we are not all his sons and daughters. There are the children of wrath (Ephesians 2), the sons of destruction (John 17), the rebellious, deceitful, obstinate, children (many quotes), and there are the sons from the east and west who will sit at the table with Abraham and Jesus while some of the sons of the Kingdom will be thrown out because they did not believe. (Matthew 8).

The early disciples were not necessarily holier than many of us. In fact some were even much worse. Most of them had never attended Bible school, with the possible exception of Saul of Tarsus who for a time became the leader of the persecutors. But these ordinary men and women had one thing in common, and that one thing made them extraordinary. It was the Spirit of adoption that God had poured out upon them on the day of Pentecost. But again, the word “adoption” poorly describes God's intent in sharing his spiritual nature with us. A better translation would be “to put on an identity” or “to appoint to a position” or “to promote”. Remember what the Father said to his eldest son: “Look, dear son, you and I are very close, and everything I have is yours”. The eldest son, who represents believers who come from an obedient religious background and the law, as well as the Jews compared to the non-Jews, did not live in accordance with his status. His mentality had remained that of a servant, hence his frustration when the Father rehabilitated his younger brother who had lived in an erratic way. But after Pentecost, it was precisely this awareness of who they were that now carried the sons of the gift of God like a rushing wave which they were surfing. They had faith, and their joy could withstand persecution. God was with them, in them, and they knew that nothing was impossible for them. Everywhere they went, extraordinary things were happening. The Bible is surprisingly succinct on the details, presumably to avoid us the temptation to seek miracles instead of the One who performs them. But we can still read in the Book of Acts, things that are highly improbable. The apostles walk out of closed prison cells, the dead are resurrected, the paralytics are instantly healed, the sick who were lined up in the streets are all healed without exception as the shadow of an apostle passes over them, others are healed or set free when an handkerchief blessed by an apostle is laid on them, disciples move from one city to another without having to go there – the whole earth seems to be waiting for this revelation of the sons of God. Convicted at the sight of all these wonders, Satanist miracle workers are converted, and thousands of people turn to this faith and embrace the great freedom of the children of God. Of course, this cannot be popular with everyone and persecution doesn't take long to organize. Stephen, a man of grace and power, performed wonders and great miracles among the people. Indicted, he is not afraid to tell his judges their four truths, as before him Jesus did not hesitate to tell them that they were the children of the devil. Stephen paints a grandiose historical fresco for them, to finally remind them that what their fathers were, so are they : stiff-necked people who continually resist God and who are the murderers of the prophets. The very moment he says these things, Jesus shows himself to Stephen in a kind of Imax motion picture which he comments live: “Now I see the heavens open, and the Son of man standing at the right hand of God”. But for those slaves of the spirit of the world who had listened to him with some interest until then, this is too much. Man standing besides God to rule the world, it can only be blasphemy. What they hear contributes to ringing the hallmarks of a beleaguered religion and puts them in a murderous rage.

The history of the world is made of this succession of velleities for the revelation of the sons of God, almost immediately perverted by the devil or repressed in vicious actions going as far as barbaric and bloody repression. I have nothing against religions. They are part of the human landscape, like politics, sport, entertainment. If it is religion that you want, I can recommend the Catholic religion over many others. Even if it subrogated to Christ the Queen of Heaven and substituted human traditions for the Gospel, it will still make the Bible available to you, and this is what allowed me to be saved. The Bible points everything that they think or do wrong, but they usually don't read those passages. But some denominations are more dangerously devious, because error is more subtle in them. All religions approach the things of God in an unrenewed mind, and therefore they are not immune to the control of the forces of evil. Religion brings sterilization, pseudonymisation and the outright eviction of the Spirit of the Lord. Men and women of good try to rekindle the flame, but they face subversive forces that are quick to undermine their efforts or to recuperate the rewards, and this cycle has been repeating for millennia. If these people need to invoke the Queen of Heaven and to cling to their traditions, it is because, as Paul said to the Corinthians : “The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel that displays the glory of Christ, who is the image of God”. In spite of this, the Kingdom of God, for it is indeed about it, is progressing inexorably. Like an oil stain, the good news of the Gospel of the Sons of God has spread throughout the world for two thousand years and even longer. Jesus told us that his Gospel would be like the leaven that the baker put in the flour. Society, even if it resists admitting it, has been transformed from within by the gospel. Everywhere in the world, ordinary men and women are convinced that they are called to an extraordinary destiny, and their hopes are in Christ, as are also the hopes we can have for our world. The first disciples like Stephen and his companions, were not afraid of death. They had dared to look Reality in the eye, and what they saw there had changed them forever. They could no longer subscribe to this organized slavery of the sons of God that Satan perpetuates through religion. They were now so free that even living or dying didn't really matter. The war waged by the forces of evil is a lost battle. The reason is simple : their weapon of deterrence, death, has been has been swallowed up in Life by the victory of Christ. 1 Corinthians 15. To be able to nourish ourselves on this truth will undoubtedly be precious in times to come, when the corrupt world will embark on its ultimate assault against God and his people, that which will sign it's end.




 

BEAR WITH ME

Life is a precious, yet often wasted treasure.

Even if sometimes, adversity makes us perceive our life as an ordeal, we are probably grateful for it and we remain expectant of the good things it will bring along. Life is the vehicle that allows us to explore the world in which we were born, and to build the character that will clothe our identity.

This identity has its source in God. It will extend well beyond the years that we can count on earth, for time is a very random notion and it is linked to this earthly existence. But if life was a car, it would be delivered with its owner's manual describing the design of the vehicle, its various elements, giving sound advice on how to drive it and advising maintenance to be made at regular intervals to keep it in excellent condition. You may have bought a used car that came without an owner's manual. Soon, a warning lit up on the dashboard, leaving you puzzled. A call to a friend more knowledgeable in mechanics will have reassured you: “These warnings usually pop on from a certain mileage. It's probably the measuring probe that is worn out and should be replaced. You may just as well ignore it”. I remember my first Subaru, a wrecked vehicle that I had refurbished. As you probably know, these are four-wheel drive vehicles designed to get out of most situations. Still, I got stuck on a sloped road due to an unexpected patch of ice. One wheel was spinning and the car would not move. There are some laborious solutions to get out of such situation and I eventually made my way. One day though, I wondered about the function of a button that stood slightly hidden under the dashboard. By consulting the driver's manual – finally! – I discovered that my car was equipped with a differential lock control. The function that would have helped me out of that awkward situation had been implemented by the car manufacturer. Still, I had to know it and switch it manually as needed.

All cultures combined, the tradition of the elders corresponds to these approximate guesses on effects and their causes, and the more or less relevant interpretations we make of the things that affect us. Some of the findings have been written by the wises in books, and these books have served to the development of religions. All these traditions, oral at the beginning, which were adapted to the particular customs and tinged with tales and legends of the ancient peoples – the nebulous theories of the New Age are a resurgence of old theories brought up to date –, explains that people who, according to scientists have a common origin, may have ultimately very different ideas about life, to the point that the word God is synonymous with love for some, hatred for others, with in between almost as many shades of grey as there are men on the planet, the result being that we cannot support each other and live in good harmony. Our great political and religious figures are aware of the problem and have been working for a long time on the development of a “universal” driver's manual which will serve as the foundation for the iron rod of a world ecumenism. But will this “harmonization” of the truth really bring the solution to the problems of humanity? …

 


Should we speak of Christianity as a Religion?

"What sets the disciples of Jesus apart from the rest of the world, including most Christians and myself, is not so much what they know or believe, but rather what they do with it".

Millennia of religion have gathered a huge knowledge base. And yet, for most of us the true face of the Creator remains as elusive as ever… The general observation is that the world has not changed much. Balances are still based on military power and not on equity, and therefore peace remains precarious. All look for a strong man who will take care of the big questions and lead the world with authority. This will only set us back. Hope for a better tomorrow could nevertheless lie within a man. …

The political and religious worlds of today seem to merge in a common endeavour aimed at preparing the way for a charismatic leader – a strong man who will handle our crises with persuasiveness and efficiency. Like a straw fire, this man will rise says the Bible, but he will be reduced to nothing. Men have never done well with dictators once they realized that their hopes were deceived. But think about this: maybe this Messiah has already come and we didn't know him, because his leadership style was not that which we were accustomed to? Jesus said that mind knowledge is not enough, but his teaching must be put into practice so we can witness that it works. However, many people imagine that Jesus simply brought a new religion, and this is understandable when one sees what has been done with his teaching. But is religion all that Jesus wanted us to keep from his message? When one reads through the Gospels, one sees that Jesus is continually confronting religion. Not in vain attempts to reform it – Jesus did not even consider reforming religion as something worthwhile. But he rebuked the priest's attitude by compassion for those who were to remain in the darkness, because religion had eclipsed God. Jesus goes so far as to accuse the religious leaders of building the mausoleums of those that their fathers killed, and who thereby acknowledged that they were the sons and perpetuators of the prophet's murderers. We could go on : Who killed the Son of God if not religion ? The death on the cross is a fate that Jesus had accepted before he took flesh. This punishment suffered in our place was at the heart of his mission on earth. By confronting the world and its religion to their powerlessness, to the point that we had to get rid of him so that our institutions could preserve a semblance of legitimacy, Jesus has demonstrated in an indelibly way that religion is pernicious by the use. All times, religions and faiths combined, religious institutions and world powers always got hand in hand when it came to suppressing the advancement of the Kingdom of God on earth, as demonstration was made when they thought they had submitted Jesus.

 

What follows might make some cringe, but it is better to ask oneself the right questions now so as not have to suffer regrets in eternity : Why, within what constitutes its most visible form today, has religion replaced the Messiah with a woman whose worship precedes by several millennia the birth of the mother of Jesus? Truly, Mary must have had her heart pierced once more. This imposture is indicative of what religion is and who is actually hiding under a Christian sheepskin. But at this level, the other denominations are not to be outdone, since each has raised to the position of god, who their dogma, who their seers. Jesus spoke to the religious leaders of his time saying : “You nullify the word of God for the sake of your tradition. And you do many things like that”. Jesus rebuked the priests for having made of religion an institution which allowed them to live at the expense of the poor without however empowering them. He told the rabbis that they were closing the door to knowledge so that the people could not enter, and that they themselves did not enter. Religion has hardly evolved since the time of Jesus, simply because it cannot. Religious people administer an institution, like others are interested in politics, sports or business. But this institution is not the Life of God. Paul tells Timothy that many men have adhered to an outward form of piety, while they keep denying what makes its strength. All this happened because we separated faith from compassion to consider God on a purely moral level. For instance, the disciples healed all the sick in accordance with what Christ had taught them. Healings were the manifestations established by God to demonstrate that the Kingdom of Jesus was a reality and that it was ready to appear, and in fact, that it stood at the door. So when I hear that almost a thousand Italians and Spaniards die every day from Coronavirus, I am sorry and angry. Religion continues to hold the truth prisoner. Therefore we are helplessly witnessing a devilish genocide on backdrop of religious propaganda. The ignorance in which we indulge has stripped us from all the benefits that Christ has acquired us through his obedience and his death on the cross.

 

For more than two thousand years now, the Kingdom of God has been in our midst but we have chosen to ignore it. Worse, we fought it and in our churches ! If we have become incompetent theorists, it is because we have left the theologians all latitude for a schism to operate between the heart of man and the expression of his convictions. This schism is what some consider a religious culture, or dogma, precepts, philosophy or sophistry. Jesus called this double mindedness: hypocrisy, or when one abandons the function to enter in a role. And this explains why today the Gospel of power has been replaced by a moral message. If you listen to the messages that come from St Peter's Square and in fact many churches, most of it is a call to Christian ethics, the rest being an invitation to accept and bear our circumstances until the coming of a new era, which turns out to be elusive. Morality is not a bad thing in itself, but it is subjective and ultimately very arbitrary and partisan. If pursued to its end, it leads to wars of religion. The Taliban's claims are noble, since they aim at exercising a higher level of morality. Hitler was a moral figure, otherwise he would not have been listened to and obeyed by a Christian nation who was also one of the most cultivated race on earth. The Antichrist who will soon appear on the political scene, will also be a highly moral character. Yet the Bible predicts that he will make war to God and to his saints. In defending their moral values ​​or their dogma, the Jews unwittingly crucified the Son of God and their Messiah. Let's not talk about the fratricidal wars between Catholics and Protestants. Our moral perception of good and evil suits Satan perfectly, since he reigns through division, and religions are his means of choice to maintain these divisions between people. But the outcome of the cross at Golgotha was an unforeseen one, and represented for him a bitter setback. The dragon was himself crushed and nailed to the earth by the instrument of death which he intended for his adversary. As for Christ, he is risen and he stands in heaven with God, from whom he has received all authority and power on earth and in the heaven! This is why, in the Apostles' time, the Gospel was not considered as a story. The word referred to a power (dunamis) provided by the Holy Spirit for the concrete restoration of anyone received the message of the Gospel. Liberation from all subjugation, whether to a religion or to a caste. From any moral debt towards tutelary spirits. Liberation from guilt resulting from the non respect of prescriptions of the law, and also from sin in its generic form. Restoration of the integrity of both our physical body and of our soul were also to be found in the wake of this spiritual renewal. If the gift was free – for instance Jesus healed all who were sick with no condition –, one condition was however set for this restoration to lead to everlasting life : Jesus summed up his demands in these words: “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind and with all your strength, and you shall love your neighbour as yourself”. From the application of these two commandments should flow everything related to the conduct of our life. A return to the law in what we call orthodoxy, integrism or fundamentalism, is now considered a retrograde attitude since it brings the believer back under the jurisdiction of an authority that was unable to save us due to our weakness, and has been now recuperated by the devil. Therefore acknowledging the law as the supreme authority is denying Jesus. But to make sure that all understood that the Law of Love is not a cheap alternative: “If anyone wants you to go one mile, go with them two miles” Jesus added. Jesus did not preach a dogma, but he demonstrated a practical lifestyle. He knew very well what he was teaching, since his spirit stood with God before he took human form and therefore he assisted the creation of the world by the same principles. God was not a stranger for him, like he is for most of us before Jesus reveals him to us. But when Jesus dared to claim that he was in communion with the God of their fathers, the religious folks accused him of being a liar and of having a demon, and this in spite of all the miracles which demonstrated his proximity with God. Have things really changed since the time of Jesus? Our hearts are made of this same hard parched earth. Whether we want it or not, we are constantly evaluating people and circumstances on the basis of the old law, and thus condemning ourselves at the same time. “But there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you free from the law of sin and death” says Paul to the Romans. With the advent of grace, God has substituted a new law for the old one. We are moving into a very different realm, a realm open to the miraculous, because grace is God's realm. Blessed are those who sow in tears, said Jesus. Our tears of contrition are the ingredient that is most necessary to soften the earth we are made of and to make it become a fertile soil.

 

Nowadays, many are tired of having to undergo a political policy that is only concerned with itself. Religion and politics are taken over by the interests of a few who seek to dominate the rest of us. If religion had not existed for itself, it would have seen in Jesus, not a menace to it's existence in this dissident which it needed to crush, but the King who personified its fulfilment ! How can one come to lose sight to such extent of the true meaning of things? For, later, the apostles affirmed that religion, the laws and the various beliefs, were the shadows of the things that were to come but that the reality is in a man – a human without distinction of gender, reconciled with God and with itself and prefigured by the Christ. “Khristos” is a Greek word that is equivalent to the Hebrew “melekh mashiach”, which means “King Liberator”. This word encompasses the dimension of a new identity that the Messiah will communicate to all who want to walk with him, restored to their true identity of “Adam”, sons of God who wear the face of God on Earth. This identity has been lost over the generations because of what is called “sin,” a word in which we often see excesses and moral conflicts, but which in reality means: to miss the target, to pass at large of the meaning of life. Sin is living for a world whose priorities are skewed, failing to recognize that it is led to its ruin by him who Jesus calls “the Prince of this world of darkness". Sin is when we don't merge with God's plan of salvation for this world, doing our own business instead of joining his “ekklesia, his governing council here on earth. It is a journey that is off the beaten tracks, a trajectory sometimes difficult to sustain since we are by our human nature, talented imitators of our fathers. We will need to go through a conversion. Converting means to stop and go the other way. God wants to change our mentality by transforming us from within, right into our most profound being. For Jesus does not encase us in moral or religious values, but he sets us free by renewing the spirit in us – he replaces our spiritual DNA with his. What is impossible to attain humanly then becomes workable. Because if God dwells in us and makes us whole – perfectly ONE as Jesus prays, then why would we be disqualified? Nothing should be impossible. This glorious perspective which God has reserved for men, is precisely what religion fights against, because religion leads it's call in an un-renewed spirit. That's how it came to crucify Jesus and to persecute the believers. Men who are one with a religion do not want to live from God's love, but they are driven by the pride of life. They receive their reward, said Jesus. But those who in this life, share the sufferings of Christ, will also take part in his glorious resurrection as promised.



Why is the door that gives access to the Kingdom of Jesus so narrow and why is its path difficult to find ?

Matthew 7

Anyone who has not read the Bible is doomed to believe what others are saying about it. And since the truth rarely matches the ideas of the greatest number… A man of God recounts that, while he was still young, he had a vision, and this experience changed his way of considering the world. Before his eyes was moving forward a great crowd formed of all the peoples of the earth. Each displayed its peculiarities. People were beautiful and they were proud of their culture.

Some were carried by a great ideal or a utopia while others progressed under the banner of a political movement, a religion or even of a desire to reform their religion. The crowd was compact and each individual progressed, carried by his activities and unable to distinguish the final destination towards which all went. But at a certain point, this eclectic and motley crowd reached the edge of an awful precipice from which smoke, flames of fire and cries of agony rose. Finding themselves trapped into a reality where their peculiarities and their certainties were of no help, people became brutally aware of something they had eluded during their life. Some turned back ... but the inexorable progression of a blind crowd precipitated them into a tragic end, which was certainly not what they had expected. The Spirit of God then said to this young man : “The consequence of sin, is death. You have seen it and I will hold you henceforth responsible for all lives lost among those whom you will have met, and whom you will not have warned”. The tragedy, today, is that, comforted by their number, many people navigate in an artistic vagueness and think : “Let's wait and see what will happen in the end”. While God has made it very clear that, what we can expect has already been promised to us. So there should be no surprise about the outcome of the choices we make during our life.

“For I tell you that your goodness must be a far better thing then the goodness of the scribes and Pharisees, before you can set foot in the kingdom of Heaven at all !” Matthew 5. But what goodness is Jesus talking about? Is it our own goodness? Just as a mere philosophy, the sugary religion leads to spiritual decay and to death. The superficial certainties that are conveyed constitute the spacious path that Jesus mentions. This wide path actually misleads many more people, than proper Satanism does. God is not met in the churches on Sundays, but he is actually wherever someone searches for him very sincerely. Gathering beliefs and enriching oneself with a tradition is like hiding our nakedness behind fig leaves. God does not want his people to be like caddisflies. Authenticity is not in the building of a religious identity that allows us to blend into the landscape, so that God shall not see us. But on the contrary, it consists of putting on a “Teflon spirit", a spirit of truth, freed from the influences of the world, willing to take on its responsibilities and to struggle with God while being nourished with his Word, and thus able to understand the nature of the conflict in which our earthly life commits us. This Spirit is communicated by Christ to those who love him and who put in practice his teaching. True Christian life is a fight against inertia and personal inclination, until we reach that place where we love God and love one another with a heart made whole, and not superficially. Then we will see the promise of Jesus fulfilled : “Whatever you ask in faith in my name, believe that you have received it, and you will see it come to pass.” To enter eternal life means to reach this Victory over self-centerdness, after having followed the path that Christ opened for us when he died on a cross. Why is it so important? Simply because a loving altruism is heavenly mentality! Would you like to spend eternity in a place where all other beings would be so different from you that you would feel very uncomfortable? You would rather run away. And that's how we will ultimately decide for ourselves, of what our eternal destiny shall be.

So when I am asked: Do you really believe that the Catholics won't go to Heaven? I answer: Well, from what I see and based on what the Bible says, I can't help but note that many Catholics are missing the mark. But then I should also say that I do not think that many Protestants, Evangelicals, Jehovah's Witnesses or Mormons – you name them –, have a relationship with the Spirit of Jesus that guarantees them immortality either. Please understand that we will not go to heaven because we are good people. Or because we followed the only religious path approved by the successors of Saint Peter, or those of Luther, or by the self-proclaimed leaders of the Christian cults. And besides, Jesus hardly talked about a Heaven, but he rather mentioned a Kingdom. Oh, I know that the words have been overused by a group of door-to-door enthusiasts. The real Kingdom of Jesus is not one of those artificial paradises that an exclusive group of people have created on some remote island, where they intend to follow their own rules. But Heaven is this place of proximity with God, a place that we must reach now, while we are alive. “Our communion is with the Father and with his Son Jesus Christ”, says John. At the time of our physical death, we will be drawn into the reality we are already in communion with, either in the true light of Christ, for those who are in communion with him, or in that of Lucifer, the magnificent liar, who followed the path of pride and is doomed to an exile. For many, death will be the dreaded moment of truth. Jesus warned that many would be called, but few would be elected. We belong to a kingdom, but only if we love the King and work for the interests of the Kingdom. I have to decide of my eternal destiny, every day, by the choices I make, by the way I seek God and adjust my life principles on what his Word says, and by leaning my heart towards loving others, since this is also what my King does. Not always easy.

But to love is not a synonymous for keeping his mouth shut. Love warns of the catastrophes that await at the turn off. Witnessing to others is actually the best way to keep the flame alive. Am I thinking of myself as being on the sure way to heaven ? Nothing can be taken for granted. There are days when I am discouraged, because of the things I cannot change, discouraged by those who are so attached to inherited values that they don't want to change, discouraged by myself because basically, I am of the same breed. I could turn my back on this destiny at any time, go back to a selfish occupation and lose the benefits of everything I have gained so far, as the Apostle Paul was also aware of. And this while others could join in, in the hour that precedes their death, and win the jackpot, as was the case for this criminal who recognized the Son of God while he was crucified by his side. Jesus does not hide himself from anyone who comes to him with a contrite heart. But death may surprise us before we get to that place, and that would be a bad outcome. For, nowhere in the Bible do we find mention of this Greek notion of a purgatory, where after death, we could be transformed by our own efforts or refined through suffering. This concept is just a devilish myth. On the contrary, the Bible says that an insurmountable abyss will separate each camp. “If a tree falls toward the south or toward the north, in the place where the tree falls, there it will lie”, says the Bible. And while some will inherit of a Kingdom prepared for them since the creation of the world, others will stay caught in an unspeakable quagmire, a place of torment they will never be able to escape. Except if there is a miraculous intervention of God, needless to say. Some people report, however, that as they died, they saw themselves fall into a bottomless abyss. But they unexpectedly came back to life to tell their story, because they had the reflex to cry out to God, or because someone fervently interceded for them. The rest of their life was devoted to seeking God, but many have unfortunately chosen to reject God, because of a choice which they judged was too Manichaean. They wanted a third alternative : their own. But by definition, there is no third way in a kingdom. You are either a stakeholder in the king's plans – and believe me: there is enough to satisfy the most ambitious –, or you are an opponent. An opponent can still be won, if he is smart. “God resists the proud, but he is graceful to the humble”, says James.



If you become born again, you will see the Kingdom of God !

John 3

It's with these words that Jesus announced the Good News to Nicodemus, a Pharisee who, although he was a good man considered eminently educated in the principles of his religion, could not grasp what the salvation announced by Jesus was about. “No one can enter the Kingdom of God unless they are born of water and the Spirit", Jesus said to him again. And it is certainly there that we must look for the meaning of these improbable words that Jesus said one day to his mother, and which can be perceived as hurtful: “Woman, what have I to do with you?”. Without rejecting the human person of course, Jesus with these words, excludes his mother from his divine counsel. Elsewhere, Jesus will also mention that he came to establish a division within families. So from now on, there would be two kinds of human beings, within the same blood line? This is exactly what the Bible teaches. We know the natural man, since we are all born in that condition: Endowed with great sensitivity, an artist capable of magnificent achievements, industrious, cultivated, religious enough to consider God and the good, and all that you wish to add. This man who lives by the thoughts of his heart is certainly not devoid of interest. But he has also a darker side. And if there is one thing that history must teach us, it is that, as evolved as he may be, the natural man only repeats the patterns that are inscribed in his genes or in his heart. Therefore, all his efforts to gain a higher perspective will prove largely vain. As Blaise Pascal noted: “Man is neither angel nor beast, and unhappily whoever wants to act the angel, acts the beast”. This angelic man precisely, has taken the noblest being that the Earth has ever worn, and he has made him his king, but after having silenced his royal claims by nailing him to a cross. God of course had anticipated our intentions, that's why he entrusted Jesus with a radical solution. Formerly, the waters of the flood swept all flesh from the ancient world, but soon the dove of the Spirit brought back an olive sprout. …

Jesus is this olive branch which, although he came from the tree of the patriarchs, in the line of David, did not claim his royal descent. Instead, he revealed himself as the Son of God, by the Spirit. “Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit", he said. But then, what is the spirit? The poet Henry David Thoreau wrote: “Every generation laughs at the old fashions, but follows religiously the new”. Atheistic scientists would have us to believe in the postulates of Darwinism, which assert that our mind – they do not even consider the existence of a spirit – is the evolved product of an accident which occurred billions of years ago, when a soup of chemical elements was fertilized by a plasma of undetermined origin. According to these assumptions, our mind, or consciousness, extinguishes with the cessation of the physiological functions. Needless to say: they have it all wrong. At the origin of every life on the planet, whether animal or human, there is a spirit or a breath (in Hebrews: Ruwach). This is mentioned in Genesis 6: 3 and in Psalm 104:29. We must however distinguish two forms of existence. This “Ruwach” spirit, which is breathed in by God, supports the existence of all beings. In Greek, Ruwach is designated by the word psuché from which derives the word psychology. When God takes his breath away, the animal dies and its body decomposes. But a spiritual remnant of our being slips into a lower place called Hades or Scheol, where according to Jesus, we still exist in a conscious form and are able to review the events of our life. But in a tormenting perspective, since we know that we shouldn't have ended in that place, and are powerless to change our fate since we can no longer interact with the things of life. It is a waiting place, before the resurrection for the judgment. This should make us think twice if for instance we are contemplating suicide as the end of our problems.

The other form of existence granted to us is spiritual and divine. It is designated by the word pneuma. Jesus says in John 6: “The Spirit (pneuma) only is life giving (zōopoioun). Human effort accomplishes nothing. And the very words I have spoken to you are spirit (pneuma) and life (zōē), but there are some among you who do not believe”. … This life about which Jesus speaks here – and which obviously does not elicit unanimity – , is Zōē, the divine spiritual life which possesses in itself the capacity to arouse physical life. This is a life that extends beyond the years that are numbered to us. We are thereby three-dimensional beings, endowed with a soul and a body. Because unlike animals, we have access to this third dimension, which is that of God, and it is this dimension that determines our new identity. Paul says in 2 Corinthians 5: “So from now on we regard no one from a worldly point of view. Though we once regarded Christ in this way, we do so no longer. Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here !” And it is precisely this new dimension, to which immortality is attached, that should be the subject of our most passionate quests in the days that are numbered to us. Religion aims at showing us the way. But since it can not free itself from man, religion will invariably lead us into the dead end of religiosity, which is a form of death. Religion takes us into a process that is intended at transforming the inner man through outer interactions. But this simply doesn't work. And that's the reason why, many people who practice religion complain that they never feel the presence of God. They worship the Lord in their assemblies and can generate feelings by reciprocal emulation, but their spirit remains as frozen as an icicle. For, God designed it to work in the opposite way : It's the spirit that must be indwelled and vivified, so that this life from within can then fill our soul and body and be reflected outwardly. But the question, both wonderful and dreaded, that many people ask themselves, is: where to turn to so that this life giving Spirit may be communicated to us? It is there, in that choice, that many destinies get tied. We must not ignore that the world, particularly in the esoteric and religious realms, is monopolized by those who seek to captivate other men to lead them astray in their own bewilderment ... And when we realize that things are not working the way they should, what do we do? We give up faith and return to the things of the world. Or we demolish and rebuild on the ruins of those who came before us, who a new church, who a new denomination, a cult, an esoteric movement, a philosophical trend, as elsewhere new political parties are formed in reaction to a situation or opportunity. The magnificent illusion of man, is that, starting from the same bricks, he thinks that he will succeed where those who came before him have failed. Hope sustains life. But God is not afraid to make a clean sweep of everything, because he has other resources. With birth and death, God shows that his work of creation is also a work of constant renewal. What God offers us – his solution to our stagnation – is not a new religion or a new world policy, but it is a New Man.

Therefore, God made us a promise through Isaiah: “For unto us a child is born, to us a Son is given, and the government shall rest on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counsellor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace”. In this prophecy, God offers us his own son, so that he becomes at the same time our guide, our king, and our God and Father. From the day of his birth, he whom we call Jesus, fulfilled every prophetic word given about him, by his life, by his sacrificial death, by his resurrection, by his Spirit poured out and which now leads his people, and by his government which is already exercised in the heavens, and which very soon will appear on earth also. The promise shows us that many dimensions are attached to this Envoy – this Messiah who is both divine and human in nature. The Christian's goal should be to not stay with just one or the other of these dimensions, but to explore them all. For example, this is where we will have to look for the new dimension brought to the Paschal rite, by the Lord's Supper. Thus, to be partakers of this existence which will continue in eternity, we must eat and drink what Jesus designates as his flesh and his blood. “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty. Yet I’ve told you that even though you’ve seen me, you still don’t believe”. “For my Father’s will is that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in him shall have eternal life, and I will raise them up at the last day”. “I am the living bread that came down from heaven. Whoever eats this bread will live forever. This bread is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world”. John 6. Those words reported by John are pretty enigmatic if we don't have the key to decipher them. But if we have read the whole Gospel of John, we know that it starts with these words: “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. …The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.” So when Jesus speaks about himself, or about his flesh and his blood, he is not referring to his earthly body. But he has in mind the divine dimension of his nature, which is this Word, for we know by faith that God created everything by his Word. And Peter adds: “Lord, to whom else shall we go? You have the words of eternal life”. Today, many have turned this communion into an occult practice. But the crowds that followed Jesus understood this: Our bread and our wine are the life giving words of Jesus, made alive in us by the illumination of the Holy Spirit. God gave us the bread from heaven through the four Gospels, and he poured on us the wine of the Holy Spirit. On its own, the fact that these writings have come down to us almost unaltered after millennia of a devilish conspiracy, is a miracle! “He who eats my flesh and drinks my blood remains in me, and I remain in him. The Father of life sent me, and he is my life. In the same way, the one who feeds upon me, I will become his life”. For then, the miracle happens: The words that we integrate in this way carry a Presence, which is that of God. Would you like to feel the Presence of God? It's very simple: Isolate yourself and read the Gospels – why not that of John – , while stopping on each word, on each sentence, and letting them descend into your heart. I still remember what happened when I did this for the first time: Suddenly, Jesus was present in my room ! I did not see him with my eyes, but my spirit could feel him. While I was bent over his word, he leaned over me and put his hands on my shoulders. Not only that, but He became one with me. I burst into tears, and from that day on, I have never been the same. I began to understand what the Bible really is, and the value of this discovery. “See! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and we will eat together”. Revelation 3:20. But it will not be enough for us to read these words or even to memorize them. Jesus affirmed that he lived by the implementation of the words that were communicated to him by the Father, and it will be the same for us. The words of Jesus, revealed in the Gospels, must not only be acquiesced, but they must be absorbed and digested. They must become the substance of our thoughts and the meaning of our daily occupations: “our daily bread”, according to Jesus' prayer. It is the words that we put into practice, that establish us on the Rock, and communicate to us the essence of eternal life – the Spirit and nature of Christ. “My food is to do the will of him who sent me and to finish His work” said Jesus.

In 1 Corinthians 15:45, we read: “So it is written: “The first man Adam became a living being”; the last Adam (Christ), is a life-giving spirit” (zōopoioun pneuma). The unfolding of the Genesis story, shows us how the Elohiym created the world. They made the animals and men by breathing in them a breath of life (Ruwach). They created the first Adam, man and woman, so that they could team to accomplish the various tasks that God would be assigning them. This partnership is also a type of the relationship those who administer his kingdom are called to maintain with Jesus (the Church, bride of Christ). The Elohiym had also made man in the image of God, by granting them their own Spirit as a pledge of eternity. But because men followed another path, God was forced to prevent them from reaching to the Tree of Life. Henceforth cut off from this Spirit that made them immortal, the human beings, created in the image of God, never existed in their fullness on Earth. This race did not really begin to take of until Jesus Christ came to reveal it all over again, and to restore us in this lost identity. This is indeed this “revelation of the sons of God” – a rare manifestation still in the making –, that the whole Creation impatiently awaits, that the apostle Paul alludes in Romans 8. Those explanations are undoubtedly simplistic, but they should help us understand the purpose and the need for baptism in the Holy Spirit.

All through the Bible, God teaches us that there is a close connection between creative power and words. A few years ago, Israeli scholars had brought to light, with the help of computerized tools, some of the extraordinary codes hidden in the Bible which prove that the Word of God is completely supernatural – in fact closer to quantum physics than to literature. More recently, other researchers have discovered with amazement that the human genome is made up of words, and that these words are the same as those found in the original Bible. The Bible indeed affirms that our God created everything by his Word, and that the whole world is sustained by his will. In other words, if God would get disinterested in his Creation work, the world would disintegrate in a second. Jesus says in John 6 : “It is the Spirit that quickens. The flesh profits nothing: the words that I speak to you, are spirit and life”. In reality, our spirit existed long before it got dressed up in this body. Potentially, our spirit rules over genes, over disease and even death! But this spirit is sort of annihilated, since from our birth we substituted for it a psychic type of functioning, needs to be revived. It must be resurrected, released and re-trained. And that's exactly what God does when He communicates us the Spirit of Jesus. For the Holy Spirit is nothing less than the Spirit of Jesus. He lived from all eternity, but God the Father was able to pour it out on all mankind after Jesus had done his work of atonement in our favour. All it takes now id to receive it. It is therefore not in blood links, which going back to Adam, would make us the sons of God, but it is in a direct spiritual filiation and by receiving a new life that springs from God, that Jesus baptises us. By the gift of his Holy Spirit, Jesus not only communicates an immediate eternal life to those who receive it, but he also launches in us a process of regeneration by which we are progressively recreated in the image of God. “So that you may know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God” says Paul to the Ephesians. Jesus gave us the first fruits of Eternal Life, and the only thing he still holds for a day that is not so far away, is the glorious body that will come as a reward. Paul implies in his letters that we should make sure that we are not found naked on that day, which implies that God expects us to develop, into our spiritual nature. How do we do to develop our muscles? We can do weight training. Meditation is a very important aspect in the life of the Christian. But there is a more profitable way to combine development and results, to finally have a house as a reward, and not be just weight lifting, and that's by working on it. Passive contemplation which is an essentially esoteric and oriental notion, has no place in authentic Christianity. The Christian faith is a conquering faith, in the most peaceful sense of the word however. The Psalms which refer to the act of contemplating, place this action in the context of the deliverance brought by God, or of his redemptive power, and to behold the glory of his house. Faced with the suffering of men, Jesus unambiguously demonstrates what God's point of view is on illness. What he invariably does, is order healing. God does not intend to contemplate us and meditate on our suffering without intervening. But as a father who is responsible for our growth, God limited himself in his action, by delegating his authority to us. To say that the suffering of the world leaves God indifferent is nonsense, if we think that he gave his own life in the most horrendous way so that our suffering would be overcome once and for all. If the suffering persists, it is because God expects Christians – you, me – to finally take up our responsibilities by bringing his healing to those around us. Yes, I admit it even though this proves my lack of obedience, but at least I'm not twisting the Word of God and pervert his character to escape my responsibilities.

This is why the contemplation of the Cross, of religious icons, or the veneration of her whom many mistakenly consider as the Mother of God, has little meaning within the true Christian faith. Of course we can speak of Mary in a loving way. Yes she gave flesh to the Son of God. Mary, the mother of Jesus, is a woman who commands admiration and her destiny was truly extraordinary. But the position in which the church has raised her does not suit her and in fact, negates the whole message of the Bible. “But we did it because an angel commanded us to do so!” So what? An angel commanded Muhammad to start Islam. An Angel taught Joseph Smith the basics of Mormonism. Almost every cult has an angel at its root. John tells us that we ought to try every spirit. Spirits are either from Christ, or they are from the Antichrist. Every spirit that does not promote Jesus as the Christ but exalts itself or another person instead, is from the Antichrist says John. In reality, some people have usurped the identity of Mary to reintegrate in the Church, a character who has no right nor share in the Gospel. In politics, this would be called a “devolution of power”. In 2 Corinthians 4, Paul says: “The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel that displays the glory of Christ, who is the image of God”. Because we cannot speak of the new birth, or of the baptism in the Holy Spirit, without mentioning that, which within the Christian church, has established itself as a substitute for the new birth. We will then come back to what should rejoice us. Because you see, words do not convey the same realities for everyone. Many are convincing themselves that they are filled with the Spirit. But if we dig a little, we realize that they make an amalgam between the Spirit of God and religious practice or devotion, or between the Spirit of Jesus and the spirit of their leaders or that which is proper to their congregation. All wisdom is not from Above, says James. If you want to test your wisdom to find out what it's worth, let your wife or your husband talk about it. If they think that you are far off, but you have sometimes an astonishing word, there is probably hope for you. More seriously, the Holy Spirit, or the Holy Ghost, or the Spirit of Jesus, since these naming are synonymous in the Bible, is not an asset or a knowledge that you get from attending Bible School or by reading the works of the Church Fathers. The disciples of Jesus had not studied theology. However, even those who despised them recognized them a “presence”. By the simple fact that they had been in contact with him, Jesus had rubbed off on them. Nor is the Holy Spirit the force that in some denominations is dissociated from the person of God. The Holy Spirit is a complete Person : “Spirit of wisdom and understanding, Spirit of counsel and of might, Spirit of knowledge and of fear of the Lord”, as prophesied by Isaiah about the Spirit who would rest upon the Messiah. If we do not recognize the Holy Spirit as the Presence of Almighty God, it means that we have not yet known him in his fullness. We do not all need a “way to Damascus” kind of experience, but God has his ways to reach us individually. The Bible describes Jesus as the Word of God – the Word we read in the Bible – , which his Spirit knows also how to remind to our hearts. John makes clear that “All things were made through him, and nothing that was made was made without him”. The genuine Holy Spirit will never make the written word of God lie, and he will never make people act like stupid or weird – but the demons will. The same as Jesus was no different than the Father, the Holy Spirit is nothing less than the person of Jesus, present in spirit in us, with us and in our midst. He is God in fullness with all that this status represents. The fact that we are sheltering such a great treasure does not make us gods however, and God will have to pass us through his crucible so that we learn to “separate silver and gold from slag”, to use biblical terminology. James says that “we all stumble in many ways. If someone does not flinch in words, he is a perfect (holy) man, able to hold his whole body in check”.

Why and how did the veneration of the Virgin Mary come to replace the Spirit of the Almighty in the church and in the life of Christians? For this is the question that anyone should ask themselves. Theologians provide some answers. For what they are worth, we can quote that Mary is closer to us. She is a woman and a mother, which implies that her heart is more accessible than that of a Father God whom we still assimilate to Zeus alias Jupiter. She is also said to stand as a mediator between us and this God who all too often barricades himself in his holiness. This all sounds politically correct, but how much of this is really true? If we are afraid to draw near to God, maybe we should just consider questioning our conception of God. When they begun their journey across the wilderness, the Israelites were terrified by the appearance of God. His holiness was, in regard to their still not sided soul, a crippling factor. “And they said to Moses, “You speak to us, and we will listen. But don’t let God speak directly to us, or we will die!” “Don’t be afraid,” Moses answered them, “for God has come in this way to test you, and so that your fear of him will keep you from sinning!” Exodus 20. At the time of the prophet Samuel, the people asked him: “Give us a king to judge us, like all the other nations have.” Samuel was displeased with their request and went to the Lord for guidance. “Do everything they say to you,” the Lord replied, “for they are rejecting me, not you. They don’t want me to be their king any longer. Ever since I brought them from Egypt they have continually abandoned me and followed other gods. 1 Samuel 8. The message that God sends us through these incidents is clear: On the one hand, God is forced to make himself awesome so that we do not sin through excess of familiarity, and on the other hand, when we allow intermediaries to be positioned between him and us, God sees it as the rejection of his person. And if we reject him, God says it's usually because we serve other gods. But Jesus made a statement that left many men bewildered, when he said : “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me. If you had really known me, you would know who my Father is. From now on, you do know him and have seen him !” John 14: 5-7. Jesus repeatedly tells in the Gospels that “he is like the Father, or that the Father is no different from him”. Jesus endeavours was to makes us know God the Father as he is, so that we would no longer be afraid to approach him. When Jesus said: “Come to me, all you who are burdened with a heavy burden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke on you and put yourself in my school, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for yourselves”, Jesus was prophesying in behalf of the Father. For the words which precede this quotation are: “No one knows the Son, except the Father; and no one knows the Father except the Son and the one to whom the Son wants to reveal him”. If Jesus presents us a Father who is gentle and humble in heart, who are we to say that he is not so? By reconciling us with the Father, Jesus not only makes us whole, but he also suppresses any need for substitutes for God.

The idea that Mary would be the mother of God does not really appear until the middle of the 4th century, under the poetic pen of Alexander of Alexandria. Noble surroundings that magnify human feelings, the suffering and joys of motherhood, family traditions, and it must also be said: a welcome form of feminism in a religion where everything is controlled by men, are the reasons why many people are attracted and seduced by this veneration. The mother goddess is a symbol of fertility and prosperity. She assures us of her protection. But she has also her moods ! We must sacrifice to Pachamama to avoid reprisals from the spirit world. Whole continents are still under her sway, experiencing precariousness when not poverty. The world runs countless stories and legends that fuel an unconscious fear. To some extent, the Queen of Heaven is to religion, what the Camorra is to politics. If today, the cult of the Queen of Heaven has grown to such an extent, it is less for the personal benefits that this cult brings, than because people who don't live in the proximity of God, think that they are at the mercy of catastrophic events should they upset the tutelary entity which is supposed to protect them. Religion has also taught that “The Virgin” can preserve us from hell. When the Catholics recite: “Pray for us, poor sinners, now and at the time of our death”, they entrust the Virgin with their misfortunes of the present life, as well as with their fear of hell after death. The worship of the Virgin is a form of conjuration of fear, and this fear is perpetuated by a religion that is not firmly established on biblical principles.

Who is actually this Queen of Heaven whose worship arouses so many passions? Because you will have understood it: Mary of Nazareth, the mother of Jesus, and this Queen of Heaven who has been enthroned since antiquity in the collective unconscious of men, are two separate emblematic figures, whose destinies are opposed. Why, for example, do we find so many symbols of the religions of the Egyptians and the Babylonians in Catholicism, whereas syncretism is strictly forbidden by God? We can read on Wikipedia that “For many historians, Mary the mother of God would have inherited the symbols and functions of Cybele, the Mother of the gods. She came to fill the gap left in pre-european Christianity by Ceres of the Romans, Rhea or Demeter of the Greeks and Artemis of the Ephesians, also named Diana. This deity is known everywhere in the world, under different names and identities. Isis, the Egyptians Queen of Heaven, carries the solar disk between her horns. She has protective powers and has the gift of healing. Clever, she knew how to revive the dismembered body of Osiris”. This bears a very actual symbolism, when related to the Roman Empire and the coming World government. ... “One is led to believe that all these deities are only variants of one and the same religious concept, which shows some differences according to the countries, explained by the fact that this concept evolved according to the local circumstances and the mentality of the people”, states an article in Wikipedia. The priests of Cybele are eunuchs, which should draw our attention onto 1 Timothy 4. Prophet Jeremiah mentions this Queen of Heaven twice: For the Jews, she is an Assyrian and Babylonian goddess called Astarte or Ashera, also known as Ishtar in former civilisations. Divine mediator between the gods and between the gods and the humans, she is considered the wife of Baal, even if in reality Baal is plural – they are the guardians of the institutions and the traditions. The Helvetia of the Swiss merges in a single entity, the myths and legends of the Celtic culture and the local Roman tutelary goddesses like Berna and Genava. With her Phrygian cap, the Marianne of the French is probably the most popular and the most accomplished of its modern representations. Through the laws of the republic, she exercises her power of life and death right into the secular life – a strange light on this ambassadress of France which thrones in the harbour of New York ... The Baals are often associated with Moloch, the god who demands sacrifices of children through the fire, and who can be linked to birth control. All over the world, we find a queen of heaven invoked under various pretexts: goddess of fertility, goddess of the crops, protective goddess, goddess of love, moderator goddess. A tradition very present in the Church consists of entrusting the child to the Virgin Mary at the end of the baptism. Without knowing it, Catholic, Orthodox and Coptic women dedicate their offspring to the Queen of Heaven, and therefore to Lucifer and his angelic system, granting them rights on their offspring. In the Book of Revelation, Jesus warns us that this worship, which he himself depicts as an adulterous sin, represents a promise of death for our children. I know of some situations where mature men and women suffer from personality disorders and are unable to emancipate themselves, facing also recurring health problems, because their mother invokes the Queen of Heaven in her prayers for them. In all good faith, these Christian mothers keep their families under the obscurantism of a demonic hold. And I know of situations where women, but it can be men also, are tormented by inexplicable suffering and illnesses, because they maintain an altar to this spiritual entity in their house or in their heart, which amounts to having a foothold in the world of Christ and another in the pagan cosmogony. God assimilates those who disobey him by engaging in these prohibited practices to those who practice witchcraft ! The devil, who wishes that we do not take him too seriously by calling himself Beelzebub “the Prince of the Flies”, is an executioner who particularly likes to torment those who have a shared heart. So how can we not denounce those who draw and keep simple people, who lack the discernment that a basic biblical culture would have brought to them, in such a sneaky snare? For all these reasons and for those which we will evoke now, this worship is in direct conflict with the revelation of God in the Bible, and it draws onto us the curse. But where does this myth come from?

The concept of a mother goddess has always been very present in ancient religion, in connection with the myth of the repudiated wife of Adam, an angel of light who tries by all means to keep humanity under her seduction in order to maintain her power over the world. Her success rests primarily on ignorance of his disgrace – indeed we know that the new spiritual bride that God has destined for the human race, is Christ –, and that is why many would like us not to read the Bible. The repudiated wife then raises her own son whom she intends to dethrone the father god. It is this cosmogonic concept which was at the origin of Islam for example. It was surreptitiously introduced in traditional Christianity, being adapted to the context of the Gospels. This form of pagan worship had been banned for almost two thousand years in Christianity. It was not until 1954, under popular pressure from those who sought to revive this cult fuelled by some mysterious apparitions, that Pope Pius XII formalized the cult of the Queen of Heaven and made it a major dogma in the Catholic Church. “He explicitly invoked ex cathedra, papal infallibility, to establish the dogma of the Assumption of Mary in his apostolic constitution”. In fact, a whole set of new doctrines had to be put in place to support this theological concept. But if the mother is not the authentic, who can be this heir whom she brings forth, should we perhaps wonder? From the beginning of his ministry, Paul denounces those who announce another Jesus. For if you think: by what principle do the heirs of Ishmael recognize the Mary of the Catholics? Since they recognize her ! For them, she is Maryam, who gave birth to Īsā in the desert. Very strange amalgamation of two stories ! Think on this: Why is the face of the mother depicted in the icons, undone, when Christ said that we should be able to experience perfect joy? "Mary said: My soul exalts the Lord, And my spirit rejoices in God my Savior". But think of the sadness that was felt by Hagar, the Egyptian maid, and that of her son Ishmael, when they were cast away from Abraham's family, a disgrace which for all this time, continues to demand reparation, as the incessant conflicts in the Middle East suggest. I am not, however, suggesting that Ishmael in himself represents a rival for Christ. The paradigm covers a reality that extends far beyond his person, dating back to the heroic times of the creation of the world. In the book of Revelation according to John in chapter 11, there is mention of an angel of the abyss whose Hebrew name is Abaddon and in Greek Apollyon. He will lead the armies of destruction.

So, it is certainly true, as some think, that all religions are equal, if we consider that all were initiated or in any case recovered by the one whom the Lord designates as the Prince of this world of darkness. What is less admitted is that they all lead to this fallen prince. If Jesus called him prince, it means that he is not alone. Just mentioned in Isaiah 34:14, the Talmud relates in more detail the mishap of Lilith, the rejected wife of Adam, outlining her vengeful intentions towards the human race. Because of her betrayal, God deprived her of her wings and she took the form of a mermaid or a serpent. Better known as the fallen “angel of light” – that's what Lucifer means – , the book of Enoch, great-grandfather of Noah, mentions the names of the twenty sons of God who under his patronage, brought science, technology, spirituality and culture to men – a hint to the unanswered questions of the archaeologists. I won't say more. Because the problem is that all these sons of God, whom the Bible also mentions in Genesis and to whom the apostles refer by calling them “fallen angels”, rebelled against God their father to sleep with women, and they gave them an offspring. They thus dragged humanity into their downfall in an irremediable way. This bastardized humanity had to be annihilated for the first time by the flood. But the problem was not solved, since these angelic creatures have survived until our days… God could have erased everything and started creation again. But he knew that sooner or later, sin would reappear and should have been dealt with again. This is why Enoch prophesied the sending of a messiah in the continuation of time, whose mission would be to restore men to their relationship with the Creator, so that they could be set apart, before a new creation could take place. Thus, God loved us enough to want to save us by transplanting us into the Kingdom of the Son of his love. And that is what salvation through the cross is for. The cross is a condemnation for those who refuse it, since they in turn crucify the Lord of Glory, as Paul likes to recall in his letter to the Hebrews. But if we accept it by identifying ourselves with the death of Christ, it becomes a spiritual gateway that allows us to pass from this fallen world to the one that is eternal. Only Jesus, because he had been with the Father from the beginning of the world, had the necessary distance to grasp the situation as a whole. I am not inventing: this all stands in the Bible in an inconspicuous form. But what the Bible emphasizes, is the ramifications of this situation correlating to the promises of faith. The following enlightened me a lot when I discovered it. In reality this paradigm illuminates the whole biblical revelation.

In his Epistle to the Galatians, Paul refers to the biblical account as to an allegory in which Hagar symbolizes the Old Covenant, that of the earthly Jerusalem doomed to slavery, while Sarah symbolizes the New Covenant, that of the heavenly Jerusalem. We find in this allegory, this opposition which remains today between the law – which in the Christian context has become universalism or the religious traditions, whose denominations including Protestantism and Pentecostalism are mutations –, and what God defines as being the faith, which is the Life of the Spirit in Christ. The first is symbolized by the slave, the second by the free woman. If Sarah and Isaac embody patient and persevering faith in Christ and its fruit, Hagar emerges as the spirit of unbelief, and Ishmael is the result of a devilish ploy that has led to manifesting the archetype of the Antichrist. This is why moral religion is so dangerous. It creates clones that will become potential enemies of the true offspring of Christ. Hagar and her son, dying of thirst and rescued by an angel, were humanized by artists, and it is precisely this woman, enduring hardships but nevertheless promised a great fate - since by this stratagem, her son was able to rob Abraham's blessing, and God cannot deny the promise he made to him - which has become the face of religious tradition and of the law. Even if the Marian drift can appear to some as a harmless expression of human feelings, it must be replaced in this context. Despite their similarities, this Virgin and the traditions that carries her will not lead us to freedom, but to wandering and endless strife, for such is the other aspect of the blessing of Ishmael. The Bible does not hide from us that the whole world stands under the domination of the evil one. Therefore, we should not see in this, a battle of theological ideas between Catholics and Protestants, but it is rather part of the integral conflict which, since the fall in Eden, opposes two brothers. Cain and Abel - replaced by Seth, Abraham and Lot, Ishmael and Isaac, Jacob and Esau, are manifestations of these tendencies. They were brothers or of the same blood, but their destinies were very different. What differentiated them was not their kindness, their intelligence or their justice. What they were different in was their perception of themselves. Some knew they were bad, but they had “eyes to see and ears to hear”, while others had made up their own minds about the world. Believing themselves sufficiently righteous because they were in the good average, the latter remained insensitive to the conduct of God. By their concern and their openness, some have entered into the plan of redemption, while those who justified themselves or allowed religion to justify them, have drowned in the concerns of this world. This is why the Bible speaks of a predestination. Not that God decides arbitrarily of whom he likes and whom he don't. But if we choose the faith of Abel, of Abraham, Israel or Christ, their heritage will also be ours. If on the other hand, we choose the violent way of Cain, the opportunism of Lot, or the hedonism of Esau, who for the pleasures of this life, despised his birthright, we will deprive ourselves of the conduct of God and our destiny in the end will be very different. When the authentic heir will appears, who very rapidly will come to take possession of his inheritance, then all the masks will have to fall and many will experience eternal shame. I feel in my spirit that I am not writing this by myself.

Jesus warns his church that, in the last days, he will put order to the world, beginning with Israel and the church, because they are his household. And how will he do it? By allowing circumstances. Circumstances that will reveal what lives in us. “If you faint in the day of adversity, your strength is small”, says the wise in Proverbs 24:10. Identification with a false conception of God, whether it is what we are talking about here, or one of the many erroneous theological concepts promoted by the Christian cults, weakens us by depriving us of whole or part of our Christian identity. The word Christian originally meant: “apprentice-christ”, or something equivalent. The purpose of Jesus' mission was to restore us into our fellowship with God, so that we could behave like his sons and daughters. “Therefore come out from among them, and separate yourselves,” says the Lord. “Do not touch what is unclean, and I will welcome you. I will be a father to you, and you will be sons and daughters to me, says the Almighty Lord”. 2 Corinthians 6:17-18.   We can understand that asking Mary or whoever to “pray for us poor sinners”, and to do it every day and throughout our lives, is likely to keep us in an identity that is not at all the one that God has envisioned for us. Not only do idols have no power, but they will prevent us from growing and from manifesting our identity as the salt of the earth. What do we mean by that? Salt is an essential element for a dish's flavour. But when Jesus used the term, it was best known for being the primary means of food preservation. The story of Abraham's intercession in favour of the city of Sodom, reveals that the presence of just a few “righteous” in the most abandoned places, can have a great impact on the well-being of the inhabitants, and even on the destiny of a country. Christians who pray effectively for their authorities and their city, are this “salt of the earth”. “But if the salt loses its flavour, it is doomed to be thrown outside and passers-by trample on it”, adds Jesus. I don't get involved in politics, but I like to find out how God does things, and to report what I see. The following remark could be bothersome, but it is interesting to note that, during the last great elections, a significant part of the American Catholics supported the Democrat party, in spite of its pro-abortion stand. Other Christians have been more critical. Despite all the flaws which he is accused of, rightly or wrongly, the Republican candidate was designated as the candidate of God, for this time and in those circumstances. Because you have to know that there is an infernal trinity. Where the Queen of Heaven reigns, the Baals also reign. And when the Baals rule the country, they do it on behalf of Moloch, the god who exercises birth control. But God affirms that while some cities or countries will prosper, others will be devastated because of the violence which is done to children. Joel 3:19. And who will be judged first for those ungodly laws? You have it : the elderlies.

What I am about to say may seem awkward but I assume it. In these times of pandemic, shouldn't we ask ourselves if God would not try to draw our attention to a particular point? I can't help but compare the death statistics by city or region, with the place granted to the Queen of Heaven or to a similar deviant protective deity, in those particular areas. It is not about stigmatizing individuals or a community. May God protect us from a counter-inquisition. These deductions could be the fortuitous result of unfortunate coincidences, and we must not forget that the whole world is under the power of the evil one and that there is no holy nation, nor is there a perfect church. But Jesus says nevertheless that we should be listening to what God could be trying to say to us, “through the signs of the times”, and not be “like a horse or a mule without understanding that you drive with a bit”, in other words through circumstances. The Bible says that God does nothing without revealing his plans to his servants the prophets, of whom I am the least. But let me try this : Milan, New York, are known to be high places of Marian worship. Paris had suffered a real cataclysm with the fire of Notre Dame. South America is a stronghold of the Queen of Heaven. Wuhan is a large city with twenty-two million inhabitants. The Orthodox churches of China are dedicated to the Virgin, but what are they in the midst of such large population? China, the empire of the dragon, has its own demons and maybe we will learn some day about the reasons which drove men – but are they really Chinese? – to create this virus and to disseminate its terror. The details are not verifiable, but my point is that causality is very often highlighted in the Bible. Nothing really happens by chance. To name just one of the many situations in which the oppressed people had to tear down the idol in whose shadow they had taken shelter before they could experience deliverance, we can mention the fight of Gideon. If you are not familiar with this story, I recommend that you read it, and you will see the similarities between this situation the Hebrews were going through and the current context of COVID. An enemy was attacking their means of livelyhood and literally starved them. Gideon began his struggle by knocking down the pole of Asherah, as God had asked him. It was an altar to the Baal and the Queen of Heaven, that his own father had erected in the heights of the village. His sacrilegious act had at least the merit of forcing the population to ask themselves the right questions. Because, understand me well: I do not encourage anyone to destroy cultural property or heritage objects belonging to others, only to end up in prison. Christians are not Taliban. We do not persecute anyone. But we remind biblical truth out of compassion for those who, being captive of false conceptions of God, are unable to defend themselves.

What Paul says to the Ephesians, is that the idols we have to slaughter are in us. Then only will we be able to break free from spiritual oppression. “For we do not have to fight against beings of flesh and blood, but against the Powers, against the Authorities, against the Rulers of this world of darkness, and against evil spirits in the spiritual realm”. Plagues and sickness are forms of demonic oppression that can only reach us when we are weak. Idols have actually no power to help us, other than that which we invest in them. Devils are mere spirits. We probably have less to fear from them than from the men they control. But we could also disarm them in a spiritual way, by learning to use the spiritual authority Jesus is investing us with. From the moment these idols are dethroned in our lives, we could live among them without being affected the least in the world, if not by the sadness and the irritation caused by the unhappiness they cause in the lives of others. However, the presence of God in the midst of idol worshippers can cause them some inconveniences. We do not have to wage a “holy war” against men, but we must overcome the duality which hides in us, because, as Paul teaches us: we are our worst enemy. If we take care of our duties, God will take care of our enemy who is also his. What God is telling us is: “Sanctify me in your lives, so that I can fight your battles”. “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbour and hate your enemy.’ But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven. For He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good and sends rain on the just and on the unjust”. Matthew 5: 43-45. The revenge and the retributions belong to God. And he has, moreover, his own way of punishing the infidels, by “leading them with bands of human kindness and drawing them near with cords of love”. Hosea 11. Because, if Satan has slaves, God has only children. God is the father of a large tribe of adolescents, of whom some are a little more disturbed or rowdy than others, and I believe that he deserves both our admiration for the patience he shows towards all of us, and our sympathy for the painful losses that his enemy inflicts on him despite his unremitting efforts. God established spiritual laws in the same way he established physical laws. In II Chronicles 7:14, God makes a promise which also makes us aware of some realities: “When I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or command locusts to devour the land or send a plague among my people, if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land. When we let go of our vigilance and venture into the forbidden zone, God continues to watch over us, but at a certain distance. He takes responsibility for the wrong that happens to us, even though is not his will for us. He designed the world by incorporating in it, laws and sanctions, but what he wants is that we spare ourselves unnecessary suffering by integrating his principles as our guideline.

Peter, who announces this judgment, points out that it will begin with the house – or the temple of God – , before extending to the whole world. Jesus had already mentioned that God would send his angels to uproot the tares and clean up his field, before the final harvest. God is going to force Christianity to sweep the house and to return to its source. The Jews will see it and they will experience the fear of God. Because God does not intend to stop there, and this will allow men from all the peoples of the earth, to recognize that God is at work, when they will see that circumstances over which men have no control, come to confirm the words announced in the Bible. “Let anyone with ears to hear, listen!” said Jesus. Some will understand the message and make the necessary adjustments, others will reject these warnings. One day, Jesus entered the synagogue of Nazareth, where he had been brought up, and he read the book of Isaiah : “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to bring good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim release to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to let the oppressed go free, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favour”. When Jesus commented on his reading, all were struck by his grace and his authority. But then he added : “Truly I tell you, no prophet is accepted in the prophet’s hometown”, and he illustrated his point with some biblical accounts. When they understood that Jesus was rising up as a prophet and judge among them, all became very angry, and they would have killed him if Jesus had let them do it. To touch someone's idols is to touch their deep emotional fibre, the certitudes that the rationalism of thought cannot control. This area of ​​the soul that sin still dominates, constitutes a fortress of reasoning and a welcome refuge for Satan. Paul experienced it when, to prevent him from speaking and telling them the truth, the inhabitants of Ephesus began to cry out for two hours: “Great is Artemis of the Ephesians!”. By obliterating our reasoning, repetitive prayers like “Hail Mary” have this hypnotic effect on our mind. Gedeon's father could snatch his son from the avenging hand of the inhabitants of Ophra by saying to them a few wise words : “If Baal is a god, let him plead his cause himself, since his altar has been overthrown”. Paul will tell the Corinthians : “For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.”

We live in a troubled world where as the Bible states, the devil maintains confusion in order to deceive all the inhabitants of the earth. It would be impossible to escape this seduction if we would not read the Bible, and the whole Bible. When did those who watch over your soul draw your attention to the letters of Jesus to the seven Churches? The book of Revelation was written in an allegorical way, so as not to attract the attention and the wrath of the civilian and religious powers. Complementing the Gospels and the Epistles, this book sheds light on many of the traps to which our inner man will be exposed, as long as he has not acquired his full spiritual maturity. Failing to show himself inventive, the devil is an ace of counterfeit, diverted to his ends. The more we grow, the more devious the traps that are set before us. The Epistles warn us against lying miracles and wonders, false doctrines, apparitions, angels of light, false workers, false gospels, false prophetic anointings, false apostles and even false Christs. The revelation of Jesus to John depicts the world in the last days – those we live in – , the state of the church and its forbidden alliances, rising powers and politics, the world crises that have started, and their happy outcome at the end of many trials. If we seek its interpretation, this book can provide crucial insight into the unfolding of the end-times events. Even taken literally by a non initiated person, its message is clear: As said Elijah : “How long will you waver between two opinions? If the Lord is God, follow him; but if Baal is God, follow him.” In chapter 22 of Revelation, Jesus makes us understand that, even though it is not clearly visible to our eyes, a selection is taking place: “Let evildoers do their worst and the dirty-minded go all out in pollution, but let the righteous maintain a straight course and the holy continue on in holiness.” “Yes, I’m on my way! I’ll be there soon! I’m bringing my payroll with me. I’ll pay all people in full for their life’s work. I’m A to Z, the First and the Final, Beginning and Conclusion”.  So, let's not fall asleep by placing too much confidence in the ongoing things of this world, and religion is one of them. Our salvation is found in Christ and in him alone. Mary finally understood it, when she found within her the impetus of humility that allowed her to forsake her religious biases, a form of respectful innate allegiance to what men honour, which can be assimilated to the ongoing worship of the Baal and Astarte, to convert to the one God: the rejected and suffering Messiah whose advent is conceived in identification, in consecration and prayer, and is brought forwards through the conquering professing of our faith in his promises, until our glorious Lord appears.

Who was truly Mary, the mother of Jesus? Just because some have biased her image doesn't mean we should ignore her, on the contrary ! The prophet Micah sets her in the prophecy which announces the coming of “the King who is alive from everlasting ages past”. Isaiah mentions the virginal conception, which will be a sign for Israel, and the fact that this son will be called Emmanuel “God with us”. Mary had made herself available to the Lord to bear the Saviour of Israel. She was made pregnant by the Spirit of God, a unique occurrence in man's history. The Gospels reveal that, although she was informed by the angels of the nature of her mission, she is not able to understand what animates the flesh of her flesh. As a member of the Levity tribe by her mother, descendant of King David by her father, Mary naturally wanted Jesus to assert himself and to take a more prominent place in the religious and political landscape. Mary is one of those who were awaiting the restoration of the Kingdom of Israel, and the prophecies which have been addressed to her quite naturally make her believe that it is the mission which now is the responsibility of her son. But his mother's suggestions, which push him into that direction, have the gift of exasperating Jesus : “Woman, what is this between me and you? My time has not yet come”, he replies when she encourages him to demonstrate his powers at the wedding of Cana. In other words: “You know who I am, but don't tent me please, because I don't receive my instructions from the human nature, that the devil knows how to manipulate for his ends”. Later, seeing that Jesus made enemies of the characters they hold in high esteem, and believing him to be mad, his relatives, under pressure of the religious community, sought to kidnap him, to withdraw him from public life. “Your mother and brothers are standing outside, wanting to speak to you.” He replied to him, “Who is my mother, and who are my brothers?” Pointing to his disciples, he said, “Here are my mother and my brothers. For whoever does the will of my Father in heaven is my brother and sister and mother.

Today, most practicing Jews who read the Gospels are outraged by the way Jesus treats the teachers of the law. A character who shows such disrespectful attitude towards those who have devoted their lives to helping men to know God better, cannot be sent by God. They think that way because they have no clue of who Jesus really is. His contemporaries took him for a self-proclaimed prophet, an enlightened freak, and even for a demoniac : “Who are you to teach us? You're not fifty years old and you say, “Before Abraham was, I am ?” Do you consider yourself as the God of Moses? This time we heard him and we know he has a devil !”. The woe of the Jews, is that they were so imbued with their prerogatives as the guardians of the tradition, and so preoccupied with the preservation of the appearances and the decorum, that they failed to recognize the Big Boss, when he visited them in person in the shape of his only approved son. Through the canticle of Zechariah, Luke reminds us in his Gospel, “that God had made the oath to Abraham to allow us, after we were delivered from the hand of our enemies, to serve him without fear, by walking before him in holiness and justice, every day of our lives”. But the Jews had moved away from that freedom, and like all the other people, they had returned to a religion. By setting their rites and their hierarchy between men and God, they had made their religion a god in its own right. And this is precisely what Jesus came to condemn. “We must obey God rather than men”, will answer Peter and John to the religious leaders who commanded them not to teach any more in the name of Jesus. Peter and the apostles did not hesitate to remind them that their religious mentality, has led them to crucify the Lord of Glory, which God then raised from the dead. Jesus affirms that he is the stumbling block announced by Isaiah. And he does not blend water with his wine: “It is written: Zeal for your house consumes me”, “Blessed is he for whom I will not be an opportunity of fall”. We should think that God did not leave his heaven to come and die in our place, moreover on a Roman cross, while holding in his hand the brush that will smooth any ruffled feathers. John the Baptist said : “Here he comes, his winnowing fork is in his hand, and he will clear his threshing floor, gathering his wheat into the barn and burning up the chaff with unquenchable fire”. But some time after breaking free from the law, many Christians fell into the same trap as their fathers, especially when Constantine established Christianity as the official religion of the Roman Empire. What should have been a new lifestyle then became another rite and a sacrifice. Today, few people realize who Jesus really is, and even fewer Christians respect him as one should respect God. Religions like Islam, and false Christian doctrines like the Marian doctrine, or that of Jehovah's Witnesses, essentially aim at diminishing the importance of Jesus, in order to replace him, who with another prophet, who with another divinity, who with a man or a pope. But here's what Paul said to the Philippians : “Though he was in the form of God, he did not consider being equal with God something to exploit. … He humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. Therefore, God highly honoured him and gave him a name above all names, so that at the name of Jesus everyone in heaven, on earth, and under the earth, might bow and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father”. This is why he also said to the Colossians: “Be careful that no one changes your mind and faith by much learning and big sounding ideas. Those things are what men dream up. They are always trying to make new religions. These leave out Christ. For Christ is not only God-like, He is God in human flesh. When you have Christ, you are complete. He is the head over all leaders and powers”. Colossians 2: 8-10

In Hebrews 10, Paul presumably, also says that, “by a unique sacrifice (that of his life), Jesus brought to perfection forever, those who are sanctified, and he now waits that all his enemies have become his footstool”. Paul continues by recalling that “the Lord will judge his people and it is a terrible thing to fall into the hands of the living God”. In Luke 19:27, Jesus also said – speaking of his return : “As for my enemies who did not want me to reign over them, bring them to me and have them put to death before me”. Surprising light on “the nice little Jesus”! Paul, the alleged author of the Epistle to the Hebrews also said : “Since God says: “Their sins and lawless acts I will remember no more”, how can we escape punishment on ourselves if we neglect such great offer for salvation?”. So, let's not stop at the baby Jesus or at the disarmed Jesus represented on a crucifix, lest we forget who the Lord which we claim to serve, really is. If the warnings are serious, it is because the stake is even more. The whole purpose of Creation is to establish a kingdom, over which a king reigns. This king is the most loving and the most magnanimous of all kings, for those he sees as his children. But he will be a fierce lion for those who pervert his Gospel and who obstruct the advancement of his reign, and God knows how many of his so called servants do not have in them a love for the truth. Paul moreover said to the Philippians : “Work out your own salvation with fear and trembling”.

When Simon met Jesus, Jesus looked at him and said: “You are Simon, son of Jonah; you will be called Cephas, which translated means Peter (Petros)”. Names are very important in the Hebrew tradition and in the Bible. Cephas does not designate the pebble that is thrown at birds. But the heavy rock with rounded contours that would be very difficult to uplift. Simon comes from Shama and means: “He who listens, who hears”. Jonah means “Dove”. The dove has become the symbol of the Spirit of God. Months or years later, seeing that something had changed in their attitude towards him, Jesus asked the disciples, “Who do you say that I am?” Peter made a step forwards and declared, “You are the Christ, the son of the living God!”. Jesus spoke again and said to him, “You are happy, Simon, son of Jonah; for it was not flesh and blood that revealed this to you, but it is my Father who is in heaven”. And then he added : “Now you are Cephas” (in Greek: Petros). In other words : to the extent that you will let the Father live in you and tame you, from impulsive, boastful and coward as you are, you will become constant like a rock and unshakable. And Jesus added, but this time using a different word : “on this Petra” – in other words, on this foundation which is the relation of obedience to God – an obedience that Jesus personifies, – “I will build my Church, against which death itself (the gates of Hades) have no power”. Jesus also promises to give him the keys that will enable him to obtain the same spiritual achievements that Peter saw Jesus obtain. By being established by Jesus in a privileged relationship with the Father, Peter, like potentially every disciple, will regain the authority which God invested man with, when he established Adam as the manager and ruler of all things on Earth. “The heaven of heavens is for God, but he put us in charge of the earth”. Psalm 115:15. In Genesis 1:26, God says: .“Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over all creatures...”   The only realm over which God has not given us dominion on earth, is other men. Yet it is what most men seek, hence all our conflicts! Men, nations, religions, are involved in the wrong fight, and Jesus wants to put us back on track. We must rule over chaos. This recovered spiritual authority will allow us to advance the Kingdom of God on earth, which can be summed up as a confrontation between two spiritual governments. One has already lost the battle and the other one is doomed to win! Jesus is the rock of all ages, the Son of the Living God. Stumbling block for some, cornerstone for others, Jesus builds his church with those who, coming from diverse horizons, are drawn to him by the Father and who received from the Father the revelation that Jesus is the Lord, the Son of the living God. It is on this foundation alone that Jesus builds his “Ekklesia”, that is to say: his local government. Our breakthroughs, sometimes push us to become reckless. It is no coincidence if, just after learning to hear the voice of God, Peter had an experience which for him was undoubtedly very traumatizing. Proud of his new ability to listen, but now hearing his own heart, he suggested to Jesus the idea that persecution and death were not inevitable, and that he would in any case not allow it to happen. Jesus took it up sharply : “Get behind me, Satan! You are a stumbling block to me; you do not have in mind the concerns of God, but merely human concerns”. Matthew 16. No doubt this was a blow in Peter's friendship for Jesus, as well as for his self-confidence. And so, in spite of himself, Peter teaches us that: “A person who does not have the Spirit, does not accept the truths that come from the Spirit of God. That person thinks they are foolish and cannot understand them, because they can only be judged to be true by the Spirit”. 1 Corinthians 2:14. He who wants to accomplish the will of God without being first renewed spiritually, exposes himself to ongoing disappointment. I could certainly talk of my own failures, but I have also witnessed despicable things done by zealous yet legalistic Christians. When theological conceptions come to support the Cainic impulses, then the jealousy and envy inherent in human nature find a justification. After the Catholic Inquisition, fundamentalist Islam is the new illustration of this sad state of affairs. Without looking so far, any community closed in on itself runs the risk of losing the vitality of love, and of seeing frustration win over its members ...  Peter will experience other setbacks. His failures could easily have left him to the ground, but Jesus had prayed for him. But he will have to wait for Pentecost and receive the gift of God, to see his spiritual life truly take off and align with the promises made to him by Jesus.

Appearances ... Obviously, things did not go the way the members of his family had expected. Because he tackles evil at its root, Jesus, like his cousin John the Baptist before him, is not at all appreciated by the ruling class, and he is increasingly hated by the members of the synagogue, who now want to kill him. This had the effect of destabilizing his entire family. “A prophet can find honour anywhere except in his hometown, among his own people, and in his own household”, will he say. This break with her son was predictable, since Mary is an ordinary person in the noblest sense of the term, a person who identifies with her culture and her people. This is precisely why God chose her to be the mother of her son : “to scatter those who think too highly of themselves and to honour humble people”. But also and above all, to demonstrate that the flesh, or the lineage, or the merits and by extension the observation of the rules of religion, have no part in the transmission of the gift of God. Jesus will later explain the true nature of his royal lineage, as we can read in Matthew 22:42. Paul will link him to the order of a mysterious character: Melchizedek. Another incident is mentioned in Luke 11 : A demon, exposed by Jesus, will drive a woman to cry out : “Blessed is the bosom which carried you! happy the breasts that fed you!”. This was the expression of a Babylonian conception, still present in the Jewish tradition, moreover taken up by Catholicism on the basis of the Song of Mary, when she declares that “henceforth all generations will call me blessed”. This conception carried the idea that the transmission of the spiritual heritage took place through the genes of the mother. But here again, Jesus will have to pull out the sword of the truth, to set the records straight: “Blessed rather are those who hear the word of God and obey it”. Later, Paul will say that the real Jew is not he who is in the flesh, but he who undergoes circumcision of the heart.

Mary is clearly overwhelmed by that which has become her destiny, and we can understand it. But she keeps meditating on the events that surprise her, and which later will go as far as piercing her heart of a woman and a mother. Old Simeon had warned her, but one does not get rid of one's human nature and social and religious culture so easily. So when Jesus has to use “the double-edged sword that comes out of his mouth”, to “judge the thoughts of the heart, separating soul and spirit”, Mary suffers in silence. Still, she is humbly making her way, and she will be saved at Pentecost, when with the brothers of Jesus and the other disciples, she will receive the spiritual genes of God through the consoling Spirit sent by Jesus. We could say that Mary was born at that time from the Spirit of her Son. So yes, Mary did indeed receive the essence of God within her, but she received it in the same way as all believers who are baptised in the Spirit receive it. Mary is our sister in Christ and our mother in faith and hope. The message that Mary leaves us through the prophecies that relates to her, is that God has his plan of salvation, which he worked out from the beginning of the world. This plan takes into account this disloyal human nature that we inherited, a humanity that we will have to transcend, without getting trapped by its lures. There is in the church too much nonsense and sentimentality in the way we live God. If God speaks to us in a virile way in the Bible, it is because – if we want to overcome and live – , we must become real men and women, and warriors! And it is in this, that we are invited to persevere while remaining faithful until the end. God's purpose is perfect and we have nothing to add to it. We don't have to shed crocodile tears in front of religious icons. We do not have to try to hoist ourselves up to Heaven, as suggested by the incessant struggle waged by this angel of light, who because of his rebellion, fell from his place with God. To seek the help of the Virgin is to draw strength from the flesh, or from this other one, a “fallen angel who still suffers rejection”. We must rather take example from Mary, by recognizing our baseness and by putting ourselves at the entire disposal of the Lord, so that he can seed us with his living Word, which is also a life-giving Presence through which he lifts us up and makes us victorious. Contrary to Marian theology, which will undoubtedly find a certain echo in our earthly nature, this will remain an obscure language for as long as we have not met the Spirit of Jesus face to face. But from there, everything will light up!

God invites us to be reborn. Because in this way alone God can redeem us. Our Father is inviting us to let go of the natural way of life inherited from the world, and to live from His life. He wants us to die to the pulses of our inherited nature, and to seek a new nature, one that comes by an impartation of his own genes, in a spiritual form. This has nothing to do with blood ties, ethnicity, culture, or from belonging to a religious tradition. But it is a gift available to anyone. God created us with the intention of making a people of small "Like Him”, and that is exactly what he is perfecting through the lead of Jesus Christ. In 2 Corinthians 5:17, Paul says: “If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature. In Jesus, God makes us creatures of a kind that never existed before. We are brought into the Family of God. “For henceforth the Kingdom of God is inside of you”. “Those who are led by the Spirit are sons of God”.

The commitment that changes everything, is baptism. Not the religious baptism which corresponds to the purification of the defilements of the world, or even that which is envisaged as a rite of passage to enter such church. But the baptism of the passage from ones old life to a new life, prefigured by the crossing of the Red Sea. The best illustration of the baptism in the Spirit that I can think of, is that of that child, standing on a table, to whom his papa stretches his arms. The child knows that if he throws himself into the void, his father will catch him in flight. But still, there is a hesitation. I mean : a real fight inside himself. The baptism of the Holy Spirit is a baptism of truth. This baptism, like any birth, excludes any turning back. Nicodemus wanted to enter the spiritual dimension that was attached to his faith. But it was difficult for him to die, die to his security, to intellectual achievements, to his position within the religious community, his financial independence, a quiet life set like a Swiss clock, and to plunge headlong into the unknown. To pass from a mental knowledge of the things of God, to the place where we are caught in flight by the Spirit, will require a letting go and a step towards what will seem to be totally unreasonable. We will have to leave the controls to this other Self who now lives in us, and obey His impulses so as not to sadden Him. “My righteous now lives by faith, but if he withdraws, my soul does not take pleasure in him”. Peter illustrated it so well when he stepped out of the boat to take foot on the deep waters, something that, as everyone knows, cannot be accomplished naturally. As unreasonable as it may seem, this approach to life through faith is not optional. Jesus said : “Whoever does not stand by my side, is against me”. Neutrality is dangerous ground to stand on – too bad for the Swiss. Like me, many boiling Christians have cooled off and that is certainly not a good prospect. Dying to this world may seem an insurmountable ordeal. But in reality, nothing in this world deserves that we deprive ourselves of an immersion in the love of our Heavenly Father.

“I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through me. If you had known me, you would have known my Father also; from now on you know Him, and have seen Him”. John 14: 5-7. Throughout the Gospels, Jesus will repeatedly claim to be like the Father, or he will say that the Father is no different from him. The character we have perceived through the Gospels, who was walking among men, full of empathy for all, healing all the sick persons, freeing those who were in bondage – from evil spirits, from fear and prejudice –, loving indiscriminately – men, women, children, old people, Jews, foreigners –, bringing light, giving meaning to life – , this man was, apart perhaps from his outward appearance, in every way, mirroring the person of God our Father. Our Father recognized him as his worthy representative: “You are my beloved Son, in you I have placed all my love”.

“No one has ever seen God; the only begotten Son, who is carried in the Father's arms, is the one who made him known”. John 1:18. “In him we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins. He is the image of the invisible God, the prôtotokos, he who has pre-eminence over all creation. For in him were created all things that are in the heavens and on the earth, the visible and the invisible, thrones, dignities, dominions, authorities. Everything was created by him and for him”. Colossians 1: 14-16.

 

What happens at the final judgment?

What does God say about our eternal fate? Jesus said that we should not wait to be there to think about it, at least if we don't want to bitterly regret it. The Bible shows us that nobody can escape the final judgment. But for some it will be a judgment for punishment, while for others it will be a judgement for rewards. What will decide which category we belong?

 



A great Philharmonic without its Conductor : such are the World and the Creation without the Word of Christ.

 


He sent them his Word and he healed them.

Psalm 107: 20

“Why did God allow this to happen?” Who do you think, puts that question in our mind? Who is the one who kills, and who then has the audacity to insinuate that God did it, or that he had so decided? Who will pretend that sickness is sent by God to teach us something? Who says, it's all the will of God, and doesn't want us to take power over our circumstances? See, we attribute without hesitation to God, intentions that would surely send a man to prison. …

“If you had been there, my brother Lazarus would not have died,” reproached Mary to Jesus. “Mary, I was there in spirit when he died. But now, rest assured : Even your brother is dead, he will live.” “I know that he will be resurrected on the last day, sagely resumed Martha, his other sister ...” “But it is in this life that we needed help, and we would have so loved that Lazarus could accompany us longer” thought probably Mary. “Of course we believe in God. But, God is for life after death. If you had been there, you would not have let God take over our brother's life. But of course, we suppose that God had his reasons. He allowed this to happen to make us grow maybe? Or to spare our brother unnecessary suffering? Or to demonstrate his sovereignty? For who are we to discuss our destiny. Maybe God wanted our brother to be with him so now he can watch over us from there… And who are we to challenge his will anyway”. “Martha, Mary – replied Jesus, I am the resurrection and the life, and I am with you! Now, behold !” With a loud voice, Jesus called the four-days-dead man, who soon appeared at the entry of the tomb, hopping, for his legs were still tied up. “Believe in me,” said Jesus. “I will go to my Father now, but I will not leave you alone. We will send you the Holy Spirit. He will stay with you until the end of this world, and through Him, soon millions like you will be able to do the acts that you saw me doing. And you will make even greater ! For if you join together in my strength, imagine what you could order in my name !” I make you masters of the circumstances, so work while the day lasts ! Stop behaving like frightened children and act as to glorify the Spirit of your Father who dwells in you. Do you think that all these people who die in disasters are greater sinners than you are? Oh no, I tell you. But if you do not change your mindset to act in a new way, you will end up like them : despoiled, crushed and wiped out by the spirits of evil. I triumphed over them at the cross. You who receive my Spirit, you are now my race and my heirs. So don't let them dominate on you anymore, but help those who still suffer under their oppression to take back the life they were stolen.” Later, Jesus breathed on his disciples and he said to them : “Now, go with this good news: Speak to the mountains that stand in your way. Calm the hurricanes. Make all that does not produce good fruit wither from the root. Cast out demons, raise the dead and heal the sick. Announce the reign of your God. If you take hold of the authority I have given you, what you will allow to happen on earth, will happen. And what won't allow to happen, won't happen. Matt 18: 18-19. … Forgive me that paraphrased version of the Gospel, but you have to be able to read things over, to see them from a different angle.

“If you only knew the free gift of God and who it is that is asking you for water ...” said Jesus to the Samaritan woman. “Salvation comes from the Jews”, he said also. Saying that, Jesus thought less about the Jewish religion, the temple, the law and the priests, than about the incredible destiny of what at the beginning was not even a people, and which now was allowing him – he the Son of God –, to stand by this well, without any means for drawing water and forced to rely on a stranger and a woman, while he was the Messiah – the one who was supposed to fill the earth with the knowledge of God “as water covers the bottom of the sea". From his birth until his resurrection, this quite unique manner that Jesus had to take part in the lives of people : the righteous as well as the outcast, those who suffered under the rod of self-appointed warriors of God, the poor in spirit, the blinds who did not see the plan of God for their lives and the deaf who did not hear his call, the crippled of life, the relational lepers, the left out of love, those who could have been reproached all kinds of things – and who finally represent us –, and then to invite them to participate with him in the advent of a new world, – as if God depended upon us, imperfect men, to finalize the work of his creation – amazed people and answered a deep yearning, pre-existent in the hearts of many. Today, the invitation remains, and to accept it opens us the door on the most formidable adventure that we can live here on earth.

The Last Reformation – The Movies

God, in our days, is bringing back the simple truth contained in the Gospels and the Book of Acts, that is: Go into the whole world and share the good news. What is the good news? – God is with us and he proves it by healing the sick, by kicking out demons and bringing the souls into intimacy with Him. This good news has the power to set us free from unbelief and to make us walk in a new lifestyle of faith.

• The Last Reformation IN GENEVA



Kingdom of God in Japan

The message of the cross is anything but comfortable and the way of Jesus is not flattering for our ego. But when Christians agree to die to themselves, to let Jesus reach people in order to heal them and set them free, the blessing is shared and their own life takes on its true dimension. 2 Timothy 3:10-13



Back to the Gospel in Geneva

A return to the true gospel is absolutely necessary. Most church people today are more interested with building a structure for entertainment than with sharing the transformative truths of the gospel. This last reformation, which concerns us all, is simply a return to the desire to live the resurrection life of Jesus in a personal and practical way. This movement of the Last Reformation should not, however, be confused with another movement whose name is similar: that of the New Apostolic Reformation of the Church of Bethel, which unfortunately promotes New Age Christianity enforced with sentimental music and positive manipulation, and which should be reformed from within. The renewal of the 21st century will begin with an underground awakening, an encounter with Christ directly or through his disciples, a humble, personal, but genuine movement.

By being shown a false image of the Christian reality, millions of people will be definitively driven away from what could have transformed their lives, and the devil knows how to exploit our naivety.

Sticking to the expression of frozen traditions, or otherwise, fostering an undiscerning atmosphere of sentimental exaltation, or simulating, or intellectualizing, or even using religion to settle accounts with society, are expressions of a diverted spirituality. Because of what it represents, the Christian faith has been hijacked or perverted in all possible manners. We have turned into self exalting celebrations or in vain ranting, when not in religious parodies, what God had originally intended as a means to reach others with His compassion. How do we know if our conception of God and the expression of our faith are real and genuine? “You will know the Truth and the truth shall set you free”, says Jesus. … “But, what is the truth?”, retorted the devil through the mouth of Pilate. That's why God has given us an infallible criterion of discernment : His written Word. …

Sometimes we do not know which saint to turn to, but fortunately, Jesus remains the same. “Let little the children come to me and do not prevent them, for the kingdom of God belongs to those who are like them”. Luke 18:16. To come to Jesus as a child is to accept to read the Bible as one eats one's daily bread. A child does not hope to understand everything he reads, but he reads hoping he will one day understand. The food we eat makes us grow taller without our knowing how. One day, faced with an ambiguous situation, we will realize that we have acquired a stature that will allow us to cope. Having personal appointments with God by reading the entire Bible and making it our own substance guarantees us a sound mind and a spirit of wisdom and discernment. I am sad to say that I had to remove some links, when I became aware of this deception that the theology of the New Apostolic Reformation represents, which now prevails in an important part of the evangelical world. Some of the preachers mentioned in the links may still be affiliated to the NAR in one way or another. We have seen it throughout the history of the church : when the devil can no longer hold back the advancement of the Kingdom of God, he will encourage the development of a parallel movement in which he will introduce a fermenting agent. Jesus spoke of the “yeast of the Pharisees and Sadducees” which is hypocrisy. But the devil can introduce other ferments, or spiritual genes, by which he strives to distort our doctrine and our faith so that it is rendered null. Through false expressions of faith, he will even rise himself in churches and replace Christ. The Bible teaches that the person who has the Spirit must judge of everything. Let's keep in mind, through our quests, that faith should remain a simple and very natural thing. By simple, I mean that feelings should not overwhelm us. There is no place for hysterical exaltation or for hypnotic repetitions in the doctrine of Jesus. Some preachers harangue the crowds, but the effects of persuasion do not last. Others want to multiply the doctrines and make us captive of them. God is not a sorcerer to “sermonize” us, any more than He is a demagogue and a brainwasher. He is not an energy or an impersonal atmosphere, a method, or a discipline. God is not an anointing of liquid love that would get hold of us, making us laugh for no reason and roll on the floor, even if laughter can be liberating when it is genuine. But he is a Spirit of wisdom, of might, of love and self-discipline. He gives us discernment and a sound mind. Jesus is the Truth in all its simplicity, this that goes straight to our hearts. His voice sounds like gentle whispers, but it has the power to free us by producing a deep conviction. His words are the “unleavened bread of sincerity and truth” which gives us the power to change. And by natural, I mean self-determined. Jesus wants to make us a people of kings, and self-determination is what characterizes kingship. The real function of a king is not to take advantage of his people, but it is to use his given authority to serve by protecting the weak and helping the needy. At a time when many seek personal development or a promotion, it is important to remember that, although he existed in the form of God, Jesus stripped himself of all his prerogatives to become a servant. He obeyed God to the extent that he offered his life as a ransom for us all. Now, the heart of the Gospel is that the same Spirit which animated Jesus also comes to dwell in us. Jesus suggests that we increase in the gifts he communicates to us, in order to better serve others.

PRAYER

 

“God resists the proud (those who have too high an esteem for their own abilities) but gives loving-favor to those who have no pride. So give yourselves to God. Stand against the devil and he will run away from you. Come close to God and He will come close to you”.
James 4

 

PRAYERS – How to trust Your life to God in Prayer

Praying with sincerity is very effective, and even more so when we pray for God's purposes for us and for others. With the help of the Holy Spirit, let's learn to pray Bible-inspired prayers.


Why our Prayers are not Answered.

But most importantly, how to pray prayers that are effective. God wants to teach us to be effective in prayer and it is one of his most compelling desires to make things happen through our prayers.


Be healed in Jesus name, through this Prayer.

Jesus has paid a high price for us to be made perfectly healed and whole. Healing prayer - powerful by Curry Blake.



Lecture: Curry Blake on Prayers of Faith.

One of the most life transforming experiences for me was discovering how God views prayer. I was outspoken in real life, but through my religious education, I would have embarked on a sentimental tug of war with God when it came to asking him something, as many Christians do. Come to think of it, I don't like people turning to my feelings to get something from me, so why would God be any different? In absolute terms, God has placed everything we could wish for at our disposal. If we collaborate with him by learning to pray in a mature and engaged way, we will become much more powerful spiritually and we will see results.


Experiencing Praying in Tongues

Tongues are the language of Heaven. Freeing your inner man to speak those spiritual tongues will heal you and bring awareness of the Glorious Presence of God in your life.

 

“Build up, build up, prepare the road! Remove the obstacles out of the way of my people. For this is what the high and exalted One says  – he who lives forever, whose name is holy: “I live in a high and holy place, but also with the one who is contrite and lowly in spirit, to revive the spirit of the lowly and to revive the heart of the contrite. I will not accuse them forever, nor will I always be angry, for then they would faint away because of me – the very people I have created”.   Isaiah 57:14-16

 

 

 

Worship Him who is worthy to be praised

 

When we Praise our God, he becomes a refuge, a piece of Heaven on earth, a Bulwark against adversity.


Your salvation will be in peace and rest, It is in calm and confidence that your strength will be.
Isaiah 30:15

I cry out: Praise be to the Lord! And I am delivered from my enemies!  2 Samuel 22: 4

Therefore put on the full armour of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.  Ephesians 6:13

 

 

“No man’s life stands in the abundance of the things he possesses”.  Increase your capital of enthusiasm to withstand the bad days.

 

Life-transforming praise is not an emotion of the soul but it is a spiritual commitment.

To worship is to express the highest form of gratitude. Praise leads to abandoning sin, returning to righteousness and the willingness to commit ourselves. We praise God for his deeds and for his extraordinary character. God is the Rock of Centuries who will never change.
When we worship we are being transformed into the nature of the One we Worship
. (2 Cor 3:17)

You who seek world peace, pray for the peace of Jerusalem, for from its true restoration will flow healing for all the nations of the earth.

Baruch Adonai L'Olam

“Blessed be Adonai, God, the God of Israel, who alone works wonders. Blessed be his glorious Name forever, and may the whole Earth be filled with His Glory”. Psalm 72.

God has always had a purpose for this earth and he does not change His Mind. “The rulers conspire against him and work to their own destruction, but God laughs at their plans. Soon, all nations will come to Zion, His holy Mountain, to Kiss his Son and celebrate his rule”. Psalm 2.


Of people from my generation, many have been indwelled by the dedicated songs of Keith and Melody Green.

Here is one of Keith's quotes: “The only music minister to whom the Lord will say, “Well done, thy good and faithful servant,” is the one whose life proves what their lyrics are saying, and to whom music is the least important part of their life. Glorifying the only worthy One has to be a minister's most important goal!”

In Power Resplendent

Since the ancient times, the Jews know in a unique way that there emanates a particular power from the Word of God, when it is sung. The songs of praise, those that uplift God and Jesus in our lives, are based on the Scriptures. Why are contemporary worship songs moving away from this foundation? Probably because they are affected by this generalized move which aims to establish other gods on the thrones of our lives, gods like the Self. David Fellingham's musical arrangements may seem outdated. But his songs remain as liberating as ever, because the Word of God does not change over time.     See also: Lou & Nathan Fellingham.

Christian Artists

 

“In your prayers (and praise songs), do not repeat heaps of words, as the pagans do; they imagine that by dint of words God will hear them. Do not imitate them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him." Jesus, in Matthew 6.

Jesus regularly asks us to be more authentic and personal in our relationship to our God. True Christian artists are also prophets. They distance themselves from what the crowds follow, in order to shake our certainties to bring by their words or their form of expression, a deeper understanding of our realities. What is “Christian” and what is not? Let us be careful not to become simply religious, that would be to deny Jesus. I think there is more to a lost artist who authentically searches for the truth than there is to hundreds who have found what they were looking for by complying to what the crowds want. I wish to add more links to this chapter in the near future.

 

 

Chi Coltrane – You were my Friend.

The idea of being one day buried in the ground was unbearable to the little girl. She wanted to go straight to heaven, like Elijah. Her songs later soothed a young man's aching heart, and they are still a blessing today. Chi Coltrane does not promote herself as a Gospel singer, but her work carries a sense of true holiness, which is awe for someone's integrity. And that's what Christian culture should convey: As Children of the Most High, we live in a world doomed to sin where we stand as Children of Light.


Nightsounds hosted by musician Bill Pearce.

This American nighttime radio show was broadcast locally by a Christian radio station some 40 years ago. I can't believe that so many years have passed in the blink of an eye… The miracle radio station is kept alive through thick and thin by the most persevering influencer I know – thank you Ron –, and Bill Pearce continues to express his exquisite wanderings every night, through the recordings. I still do sometimes listen to the soothing stories, when peace of heart seems elusive.


Akiane Kramarik – Art is a prophetic Gift.

“Blessed are the pure in heart for they shall see God”. Many people know how to put themselves forward through their art. But those who can speak of the source, the gestation and birth, sometimes in pain, and the meaning of this expression, are much rarer. I knew nothing about Akiane Kramarik until I discovered recently her prophetic passion for the One who makes our world so beautiful. The way she truly lives what she expresses as “an awareness of our moral duty and responsibilities, and the harmony of spiritual purpose and freedom to live our dreams”, is an example for all who express in a form of creativity.  Actual.

Muslims discover the Truth about Jesus Christ. “Moderate Muslims are not the enemies of Christians and Jews. But because they have been prevented from accessing the Truth, they remain locked in an erroneous knowledge of the person of God, of his principles and of his will for mankind. Most Muslims are basically good people who love God fervently and who wish to suppress intractable and conquering Islam in order to live in peace with their neighbours. But they struggle to enter into the presence of God and to obtain his blessing, because they are looking for the gateway where it is not to be found ”.

The essential

“In the world of men, each question brings up more questions. In the world of God, each question finds its answer and every problem that arises has its solution, prepared from even before the foundation of the world.”

The beginning of wisdom is when we eventually believe all that we read in the Bible, and not just what our experiences allow us to believe.

“Why do you look for the living among the dead?”  Luke 24

People who have found God have one thing in common: They have overcome their prejudices, to seek God in and with all their heart. God meets people who like him, are passionate.

“Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. “I will be found by you,” declares the Lord, “and will bring you back from captivity.” Jeremiah 29:12-13

Since “God so loved the world that he sent his one true Son so that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life”, for “while we were still sinners, Christ died for us”, it is obvious that God loves and understands all human beings much better than we could, and that he has a plan for their rescue. Jesus is invisible to the eyes, but we who believe have become the body of Christ – his arms, his heart, his voice – here on Earth.

– But what does God mean by “perishing”? We don't read the Bible and we are alive and well ! … Yes, but the question is : for how long? The Bible says that our life is a vapour on the ground. The sun rises : it is gone. But it continues elsewhere, and if we are not rooted in the Word of God but have followed horoscopes and psychics or have worshipped substitutes, we will end up in a lake of sulfur the Bible says, which means in horrific moral suffering, because this is what believing in lies produces.

Rather than beg God to accede to our piecemeal requests, even if there is nothing wrong with that, let's understand that God has a plan and that by collaborating with our Heavenly Father by praying and declaring the new realities, we will contribute to “His will being done on Earth as in Heaven”. An attitude that is in accordance with his Word, will earn us the full attention of “the angels, those ministering spirits sent out to serve (accompany, protect) those who are about to be saved”. Hebrews 1:14, Psalm 103:20

 

 


 

 

IT ALL STARTS WITH A PERSONAL MIRACLE

Receiving the Spirit of Jesus, also named the Holy Spirit, is the greatest gift that we can receive from God. When we submit our life to God and receive salvation, it is not to remain in passiveness. On the contrary, his Spirit will indwell us and start renewing our mind. He will lead us in all the truth. He will give us a powerful prayer life. He will even give us new prayer languages to help us in the weakness of our flesh. We can experience drought, but the stream of God remains full of water. Speaking in those spiritual languages will build us up. It is the key to gaining spiritual power and dominion over sickness and on any of the devil's means of oppression – if you wondered why so many “Christians” fight this gift from the pulpit, now you know. It taps into the supernatural of God. It starts in a babble and turns into a roaring when needed. It is a language of love and intimacy with God, and a weapon of mass destruction against the forces of evil. All of God's people who are mighty at front use it extensively in their private life.

Prophetic Words for Today

 

Our help is in the name of the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth. Psalm 124

In these perilous times, God wants more than ever to have our attention. Mind control is invading the earth through the “regular” media. But things are not as they seem and God has another point of view that he wants to bring forward. The new millennium promises to be extraordinary. It will begin with a wedding banquet of cosmic proportions. But for us to eventually enter the promised era of prosperity and peace which will be placed under the jurisdiction of his Son, God will have to judge the corrupt systems of this world, in other words, to sweep the house. The process will shake the whole world and will leave no structure nor religion or individual belief unscathed. Times will become increasingly difficult. But do not lose heart for God is in control. He has provided and will continue to do so, for all who love him and who invest their trust in no man but in him.

AMAZING prophetic INSIGHT

 

• THE SID ROTH YT CHANNEL


“Yehudim ask for otot and Yevanim seek chochmah. But, we proclaim Moshiach and nivlato al haEtz”.   1 Corinthians.

The Gospel isn't just words, but it's the supernatural power of God for the salvation–body, mind and spirit–of whoever believes. When Jesus' own people get hold of the truth of the Gospel, you can expect something mind blowing and life changing !

DISCLAIMER : ISN Network offers an open tribune to many guest speakers who for probably the most part are outstanding men and women of God, with amazing stories to build our faith. However, due to the times of increasing non biblical or New Age views and values creeping into the church, please, exercise your discernment.

 

 

 



BEWARE OF COUNTERFEITS – New Age in the Church

We are the heirs of a religious unconscious rooted in our Greco-Babylonian culture. This apparent piety prevents us from moving into true faith. Why the encounter between man and his God does not take place? Man imagines that God barricades himself in the holy and in the vertuous. He therefore seeks to impress him by building cathedrals — or by celebrations — and by elevating what in his own eyes is noble and worthy. … Whereas, God resists the proud and simply desires to meet man in the truth of a contrite and humbled heart. These parallel trajectories, which therefore never meet, sum up the history of religions. Imagine having contact with your children only through an intermediary. Since immemorial times, God is like the father of this prodigal son, who sows unconditional love in order to restore family links. But like the elder brother in this tale, man just thinks of satisfying the demands of a God, whom he fears. Whether one is lost in rebellion, or lost in religion, the result is ultimately the same : It is the solitude of the Father, and that of his Children.

The apostle Paul expressed his pain at seeing his own people refuse the Gospel, simply because its glory remained veiled to their eyes. Paul states in 2 Corinthians 3 that, as in the past the Hebrews in the wilderness refused to contemplate the glory of God who illuminated the face of Moses, the believers who cling to tradition and refuse to be baptised in the Holy Spirit, have their mind blinded by the god of this world, so that they do not see the shining of the Gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.

Today, we see an increasing number of youth churches embracing new theology and new spirits also. This is a matter of deep concern and the reason why I speak bluntly on the subject.

 


 

 


This Has Already Started Happening.

   

 

How is New Age manifesting in the Church ?

 

OK, here comes the bad part. Everyone is beautiful, everyone is nice? You know its not that way. We have a good Jesus, a magnificent Jesus. But part of our apprenticeship is learning how to unmask the bad and the ugly. One of the most effective ways the devil has devised to ruin the lives of Christians is to counterfeit the conduct of the Spirit of God – in words, in thoughts, in dreams and in manifestations. Awareness of this fact should be a fundamental point of the Christian doctrine. But we often prefer to ignore it, because we don't like confronting people, and sometimes from a misconceptions of what unity in diversity is about. The truth however is that, whenever people want to hear nice things, the devil will take advantage of them. But God will NEVER tell us to do something that is against his principles. Therefore, we must know the Bible and test every decision on the basis of the Word, the circumstances and the times, in order to be able to recognize the sabotage manoeuvres of Satan. And most importantly, we should yield every decision to the Lordship of the Spirit that dwells in us.

BETHEL CHURCH: Incorporating New Age Mysticism, Spirit Guides, Messengers, New Outpouring, Spiritual Invasion, Healing Energy, Grave Sucking and more….

I am not a follower of the “International Order of Heresy Hunters”. But when I saw, in a church that I attended, the weird way to say the least, in which some young people behaved after they went through the “School of the Supernatural” of Bethel Church, I knew from the Holy Spirit that a tragedy with many ramifications was unfolding in the Christian world, affecting particularly young people but not only. To see with my own eyes how Satan knew to possess these young people from my area, while making them believe that they were filled with the Holy Spirit, has saddened me and made me indignant. Claiming a Pentecost of a new kind, the movement led by charismatic personalities like Bill Johnson, Kris Valotton, Heidi Baker, Ben Fitzgerald and others, clearly assumes the contributions of the New Age and leads thousands of young Christians, mainly from stagnant evangelical circles, in the emotional web of a form of Christian esotericism. Under the guise of a “New Apostolic Reformation” based on the controversial theology of C. Peter Wagner, they mix in an almost inextricable manner, the genuine Christian concepts with others, that are clearly anti-biblical. Former students bravely denounce some of the trends and practices going on at Bethel, a mega-church located in Redding, California.

Hundreds of thousands from around the world having now embraced the NAR's teaching, the transition to apostasy affects an increasing number of churches. It is heartbreaking to have to recommend abstaining from relationships with Christians who otherwise are nice people, and with the few churches that seem to be “alive”. But Jesus gave solemn warnings in his parable of the tares – Tares: those who in his church, come from another kind of seed. “He will send his angels to gather the tares before they are burned”. We must not forget events of the past and how a nice guy named Jim Jones, led a thousand of his followers to a tragic end. Because the movement is supported by false theology, and because of the fake “holy spirit” that rules there – a really deceitful spirit –, Bethel is a dangerous cult and it puts forward another Jesus. The same disapproval also relates to the gospel of the New Apostolic Reformation movement and all that it produces : books, teachings, worship music. We definitely live in fascinating times…

NEW AGE CHRISTIANITY corrupting the Church – Hillsong, TobyMac, Bethel Music.

Cast the merchants from your temple. Our world needs good worship music, but not in the way it wants subliminal rock & roll music. Bethel and Hillsong use their music as a hook to bring people into their false theological system. The worship music that makes God happy is when you open your heart to your Heavenly Father and you become a living song, under your shower or while driving your car or doing your daily tasks or household chores – in fact, anywhere any time. This will make you happy too, and it costs you nothing!

Pope Francis's New Book is The Catholic Reset

Dr Taylor Marshall is reading the new book by Pope Francis titled “Let us Dream.” He reads most of the prologue and focuses on the direction of Pope Francis regarding secular ideals, “creating something new”, “our new principle”, and “reimagining a new world.” How does that fit in the Catholic théology?



 


“Yes, my people perish for lack of knowledge, because you, the priests, have rejected knowledge.   Hosea 4:6 .


“Error is a wild grass that proliferates in the wastelands of knowledge”


Many years ago, I heard Derek Prince say : “Counterfeit faiths and cults grow in the soil of the decline of the church”. Prophet Daniel had predicted, for a distant time, a religious revolution that would bring notorious changes – words that are reported in Daniel 11. Jesus echoed this prediction and he warned us that, once the gospel would have been preached into all nations, almost simultaneously, the despicable and desolate thing announced by the prophet Daniel would have “settled in the holy place”. Many agree on thinking that the future world government of the Antichrist will rule for a short time in Jerusalem and that its leader will go as far as sitting on the throne in the reconstructed temple. But on another level, and since we are now the temple of the living God : at the turn of this century, a prominent leader of the New Age movement has declared that, within 20 years, most evangelical churches would have yielded to the spirits of the New Age.

It would be naïve to think that everything that looks like Christianity is true Christianity. Nowadays, we hear a lot about “new apostles”, “spiritual mantels”, “double portions anointing”, “soaking in the presence”, “seeking the glory”, “heavenly invasion”, “portals”, “baptism of fire”, “awakening” to whatever. A misplaced thirst for the supernatural drives thousands of Christians to places where they hope to get those additional “blessings”, from men who are the waterless fountains that Peter writes about. They have an appearance of piety, but they have denied what makes its strength, that is to say : the truth, as Paul said to Timothy. Evangelical Christianity and Protestantism in general have been plagued by spiritual apathy for decades. And now that they realize that there is more, they turn away from the truth and go looking for what is missing, in the worst possible places. Both Peter and Paul warned us that false teachers would rise from amongst us and take away from from the truth, large crowds of people who don't know how to recognize their right from their left. They’ll say anything that sounds good to exploit their followers, and give the way of truth a bad name. 2 Peter 2.   As Jim Caviezel, the actor who starred in Mel Gibson's film, said: We're going through a tough time before things get better. The devil is going to screen us to find out where our weak points are. He can buy any preacher or church leader, if he pays the price. Some for 1 million, and others for 50 millions. Drawn into the quicksands of money, fame and sexual attractions, they will think they have chosen such or such path, when in reality they will have capitulated. This phenomenon is now so widespread that it is designated by a name : Seeker sensitive churches, churches where everything is done to attract people, most often to the detriment of a solid experience of conversion.

 

“I multiplied the experiments and I pulled out all the stops”. The sentence is not taken from the book of the wisdom of Solomon, but it could have stood there, with in conclusion his famous sentence: “There’s nothing to anything–it’s all smoke.” It rejoins the motto of the Jesuits: “The end justifies the means, always for the greater glory of God” Or even the Koranic verses which incite to lie and to kill, if that helps the progression of Islam. The central question becomes this: Is religion making believers, or is it believers that make up religion? The sense of the question is crucial, even if the question itself makes no sense. Jesus would say that the law was made for the people, and not the people for the law. What the Roman Catholics have done in the field of the traditions, by incorporating into their organization the Roman Septemviri epulonum, and by rehabilitating the worship of the mother goddess – resurgence of the Middle Eastern cults of the Queen of Heaven Isis, or Astarte, always served by the guardians of the traditions: the Baal –, the Pentecostal movement Word of Faith did it at the level of the experience, by rehabilitating a Gnosticism proscribed by the apostles. You may have heard of the “Toronto Blessing”, the “Lake-land’s Revival” or the “Bethel Church's Tunnel of Fire”. Under the inspiration of the spirits of the New Age, Christians went to the Hindu gurus to find spiritual powers that are as demonstrative as they are useless. Ultimately demonic, these spiritual influxes, probably a legacy of a hippie era, are totally foreign to the legacy of the Christian faith.

 

Yet this now inextricable mixture of Christian truths and demonic spirituality is one of the most striking characteristics of later time church life. Seeds of different origins, growing together in the same field and producing, which some good grain for the granary of God, which straw destined to the fire, are precisely what Jesus tells us about in his parable of the tares. Throughout the Bible, God urges us to keep a spiritual and pure faith, pledge of our new birth as Peter says, consistent with what Christ and his apostles have transmitted to us. However, from the origins of our faith, we note a popular will, or coming from religious authorities, to amalgamate old things with new things and to enrich our faith with a tradition, by going to seek in other cultures, elements supposed to bring a complementarity, in order to confer on the dogma a certain universality – this is moreover the meaning of the word “catholic”. These amalgamations of pure Judeic traditions with Babylonian cosmogony, Egyptian rebirth, Greek pantheon and Roman church organization, are the shenanigans of Satan to reclaim our faith. Denial of a biblical truth or addition of elements which are not acquired by the sacrificial death of Jesus at the cross, summ up in the denial of our faith, warns Jesus. There is a story in the Bible, chapter 10 of the book of Leviticus, which illustrates this point particularly well. Two of Aaron's sons had taken it into their heads to give their worship an exotic dimension, by bringing to the altar of perfumes, a foreign fire, that is to say a fire that did not come from the altar of sacrifices. “Fire then came out of the Presence of the Lord, consumed them both, and they perished there before God” ... The severity of God's intervention will be explained by the motivation of men. Satan's hidden goal, in giving birth to a false religion, is to anticipate the coming of the Kingdom of Christ, in order to somehow pull the rug out from under him. His advent will therefore not occur during the great religious awakening on which many are working, since this world awakening led by a coalition of the dominant religions, will in reality be the last conflagration of the religion of Satan during which the faithful believers will be put to death by their New Religion counterparts, as we see happening in many parts of the world. On the sidelines of this politico-religious conflagration, a spiritual and authentic counter-awakening whose origin is supernatural will continue to spread – a situation which once again can be illustrated by the parable of the tares and the wheat, growing together in the same field. If the inspiration will come from different sources, the manifestations will also emanate from different spirits. You will recognize them by their fruits, Jesus said. What are the fruits of the Kingdom of God? Beautiful masses or celebrations, grandiloquent words, unusual phenomena and supernatural manifestations? You know what men are after. We manage to pass for intelligent beings, until a mermaid passes before our eyes. Women will be more sensitive to reptilian vibrations and to luminescent shimmers. “Therefore, be sober” recommend the apostles. Jesus said: “Love one another as I have loved you, for by this all will know that you are my disciples: if you have love for one another”. However, to love wrongly and through, we know how to do it. But to love as Jesus loved us, by snatching us from Satan's jaws without fear of causing his own downfall, that is another thing. Jesus used the power of the Holy Spirit to save men, and he invites us to do the same. I am not there I admit it, but I refuse to be satisfied with the political correctness of a church life which is only natural.

 

 

The power and miracles according to Jesus do not come from this world. They are not to be sought in a particular anointing, in an atmosphere of signs and wonders, nor in electric tingling, in magnetism or in the spiritual energy of Reiki, not even in an outpouring of “liquid love”. But there is power in the Living Truth of the Word of God, and it is undoubtedly there that we have to seek what today is sorely lacking to the church. The Church has become a place of entertainment and it leads its own life in which God should not interfere. But the Truth is a person. We are not to reinvent God, but rather to invite this person to lead us by remaining firmly attached to him, as the Israelites once drank from a spiritual rock that accompanied them, and this rock was already Christ says the Bible, Jesus said that “If you remain in Me, and My words remain in you, ask whatever you want, and it will be done for you”. And also, as Curry Blake, quoting Lester Sumrall, says sometimes : “God did not sow a son to reap servants, not even anointed ones”. Through the blood he shed on the cross, Jesus has fully reintegrated us into our family which is the family of God. If Christ really lives in us, then we do not need to go begging in the courts of heaven for intergenerational curses to be broken, or to receive special anointings, special powers, spiritual mantles, baptism of fire, greater glory, gold dust, holy oil and that sort of old reality things produced by those who want to compartmentalize the Gospel in order to make it their own thing. I say it bluntly : let's open our eyes to the manipulation. We are not Harry Potters in the making, and we need to know who is the one who stirs up these strange manifestations in order to distract our us from our essentials. That Christ is accompanied by glory, I do not deny it since it is also my quest. Jesus did feed thousands of the contents of a young boy's picnic box, and there were leftovers. But this bread is not the glory of God, and all who ate of it are dead. The glory of Christ is the people who are delivered and healed and who can thank heaven that the Holy Spirit has opened their eyes to the secret of eternal life. The difference between Harry Potter and Jesus is in the spirit that animates them. One is motivated by the fear of emptiness and the thirst for power, the other gives himself entirely because he is entirely abandoned to God. Too many Christians are looking for Harry Potter-style power. But Jesus warns them that even if they do manage to work miracles, they will still be cast into “outer darkness”. The Christian life is summed up entirely in this statement by the apostle Paul to the Corinthians :  Corinthians : “Christ in you, the hope of glory”. To be complete, does Christ need an additional anointing, to be supervised by his mother, or to have holy relics in his wallet? What is the anointing ? Is it the fact of being shaken like disjointed puppets by the “shaker spirits” who shake the gurus? Let’s be reasonable. We live in a time when millions of seeking Christians are going to be carried away from the truth by the magic of who we know. To prosper, we will have to accept the education that God reserves for his sons, and which consists mainly in taking power over our sinful habits, which they can be passed on to us as an inheritance.

 

I have always been sensitive to beauty. But I am constantly learning to discern genuine beauty from what is only artifice. You enter a church. The many adornments lack to conceal the sad reality of a complete absence of life. Oh, you might catch a glimpse of some lurking shadows, ready to take hold of the poor wandering souls. Someone once said that the decoration of a place of worship is inversely proportional to the spiritual life that takes place there. We could speak in the same way of many women and men who offer their bodies to view, being a show themselves, but who have no life of their own. Life is in the eyes. Jesus is God's gaze on us. Adam and Eve were naked before God and they were not ashamed. The nudity in question is not the absence of clothing, but it is the absence of separation and the opening of the heart. Many people hide their eyes from others. And what touches us a priori in others is the absence of concealment and it is this innocence that turns their eyes into as many windows open on heaven and on God. Heaven is what everyone is unconsciously seeking. We came from heave naked, but we know that in order to find our way back to where we came from, we must clothe ourselves with light. Heaven on earth is Emmanuel: God comes to live in his temples, each of us for his part.separation and opening of the heart. Many people hide their eyes from others.

“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.”  One of the characteristics of the spirits of new age Christianity is restlessness. If we give in to a headlong rush, we will eventually fall. John the Baptist said that Jesus was coming, and that he would baptize us with the Holy Ghost and with fire. Not the fire of the inner agitation of the Kundalini of Bethel, or the thunderous rantings of the Word of Faith movement. The sacred fire of Jesus consumes in us this unhealthy agitation which binds us and prevents us from being ourselves. What sets apart Christianity from false religion is the divine peace of Jesus who comes to rest on people who have died to themselves and to this world of raging madness. It is written that before the Messiah returns, God will send Elijah to bring the hearts of the fathers back to their children and the hearts of children to their fathers. God is already raising an army of new Elijahs to confront the prophets of the false order. Their motives will remain misunderstood, for they will refuse to embrace the syncretic religion which will sweep over the world and to which all will have subscribed, thinking that it will bring peace on Earth. They will despise agitation, fear, catastrophic measures, media manipulation. Hated and put to death, they will nevertheless be the last bulwark of Truth in the face of the great politico-religious deception of the end of time. They will have learned that there is more reality and strength in a gentle whisper coming from the mouth of God than in the howls of rage and despair of a world renderred at the end of its reign. Hated and put to death, they will nevertheless be the last bulwark of Truth in the face of the big deception. As the prophet Daniel said : They will act steadfast, because they will have known God. And God will prove them right. Daniel knew what he was talking about, he who had preferred the furnace and the lion's den to comfortable compromises. Yes, we have to learn to know and grow in this Truth.

 

“My dear children, I write this to you so that you will not sin. But if anybody does sin, we have an advocate with the Father–Jesus Christ, the Righteous One. He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours but also for the sins of the whole world.”   ”I write to you, dear children, because you know the Father. I write to you, fathers, because you know him who is from the beginning. I write to you, young men, because you are strong, and the word of God lives in you, and you have overcome the evil one. Do not love the world or anything in the world.” 1 John 2

 


 

 

“Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world. (…) You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them (the false spirits), because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world”. 1 John 4.

“Then if anyone says to you, ‘Look! Here is the Christ,’ or ‘There He is,’ do not go out there”. (Jesus)

 

 


 


why has god set rules to sexuality?

God loves the homosexuals the same way he loves the heterosexuals. Jesus never rebuked anyone for the motive that he or she was a sinner. The simple reason for that is that we were all sinners, even more those who considered themselves righteous ! But Jesus said of himself that he was the God of Abraham, and therefore, the requirements that he placed on us were no different than what the Scriptures had always said. What Jesus has renewed is the motivation and the spirit in which we serve God, now based on the forgiveness of sins and the gift of the Holy Spirit. But that doesn't mean that God is endorsing all sexual behaviours, whether in a straight sex or same sex context. Assuming that we would not all be equal, some want to change the rules to allow those who feel different expressing their embarrassing desires with legitimacy. Feeling different can indeed represent great sufferings and this should leave no one indifferent. Every soul should have the right to love, and the right to be loved, with peace of mind. But rather than offering an oxygen mask to those who suffocate, shouldn't we rather make the air breathable for all? …

Why do we see a collapse of this commitment that marriage represents, and a disruption of the bisexual understanding of relationships? My answer might surprise you : It is because we have lost sight of the model marriage is based upon. Marriage has always been, by design, an earthly symbol reserved to the human race, representing our celestial union with our great immortal love, which is our God. In this process, the distance set between the missing parts, which see each other, but because of their differences, find it sometimes difficult to come together, and to be reshaped in order to cling with one another, becomes the catalyst for great transformations – this thought should console the waiting souls. When God says: “This is why Ish will leave father and mother to cling to Isha as to become one flesh”, this reality can be transposed to the world in which we have taken shape, and from which we will have to wean ourselves at a certain moment in time in order to marry the nature of Christ. Take away the guiding paradigm, and the expression will take all imaginable forms. Why should we be faithful to a unique partner for whom we would be made, if ultimately we were just evolved animals? The more evolved, the more we should be free from any bound. But rather than evolution, our attachment proves that we are subject to a transformation into a relational dimension. On a symbolic level, attraction to the same sex could then represent the temptation to escape this transformative quest by yielding to a narcissistic relationship. Some make the Bible say things that it does not say, others teach that the Bible asserts nothing and that everything is subject to interpretation. This is not true. The Scriptures could not be clearer : God has set a framework for human sexuality, just like for animals elsewhere, even if his requirements are not the same for all the beings He created. Everyone will agree that if God asks us to align ourselves on his model, it is because he gave us the power to do it. If we did not have the capacity to rebound and change our trajectory, we would not be human beings, but be like some oysters. So why make people believe that they are born, attracted to the same sex, and that this bias is written in their genes? However, it is true that a change in an area that touches our innermost identity will require a significant move. Thousands of people can testify of the changes that took place in them when they accepted that Jesus became the new foundation of their life. The Holy Spirit carries within itself the perfect model for every human being, and our true identity is hidden in it. In reality, the gender of the word “Spirit” of God, in Hebrew (Ruach), is both masculine and feminine. And in Greek (Pneuma), the word is neutral.

And when Jesus says to the Pharisees: “Since they are no longer two but one, let no one split apart what God has joined together”, Jesus has the couple man and woman in mind, of course. But he also and above all thinks of the team that man and the Holy Spirit form together, in a sacred union that no man under fallacious pretexts, should attack in the name of a certain legalism, as the Pharisees were experts in doing, and particularly with regard to Jesus.

I say this with humility and as an encouragement to seek a pure life, for if God hadn't forgiven me again and again, I wouldn't be allowed to mention this: Paul exhorts us in chapter 5 of Galatians, not to think that we can fall through the cracks. Paul very enumerates a certain number of mores, which if we persist in them, will assuredly deprive us of the enjoyment of the Kingdom of God. Now, if we are prevented from entering His Kingdom, there is only one place left, and Jesus says it is a place of torment, of weeping and of gnashing of teeth. The things that Paul lists here are politely translated into generic concepts. But in the original Greek of the Gospels, they are more crude. These words are porneia, akatharsia, aselgeia, eidololatreia, pharmakeia, and others that I let you discover. All our sins are forgiven when we bring them to Jesus. There is nothing that we could have done that is unforgivable. Even the shame that the memory of these things arouses, Jesus took upon himself at the cross. But in return, he really asks us to stop sinning. We stop sinning when we consider living for Jesus and no longer just for ourselves.

 

How we worship Demons through Entertainment.

Don't buy the Lie that you can't Change.

The opposite of homosexuality is not heterosexuality, it is holiness. Living a holy sexual life means sometimes having no sexual life, or for a time. But it hasn't to be so. Gays and lesbians aren't born that way. Otherwise the countless testimonies of those who say that they were set free, would be lies. There is real hope. Part II



John BEVERE – How God Delivered me from Pornography.

Let's be honest : porn is now everywhere and it has one of the most powerful grip on us once we have succumbed to it. Until we understand how God sees his children who are enslaved in the lie that this is love. Then we start condemning ourselves, but we are unable to break free. All addictions have ill effects, but this addiction is particularly destructive of self confidence. This is certainly not unrelated to the epidemic of suicides that affects ministers amongst other people. Another side effect is untrustworthiness, responsible for the breaking apart of couples and families. The good news however, is that it is easy to never lust again, once we have reached the point where our motives for repentance are right.

How my Husband and I met.

After meeting God, meeting our partner in life will probably be our greatest event and the most decisive for the rest of our life. The two are linked together more than we may think! But how will we know that we have met the right person? Well, each story is peculiar, but keeping priorities is essential not to be mislead. In a nutshell: Stop looking for a partner to fill the gap, and look for God. He is the Architect and the matchmaker.


Pastor survived his mother’s attempt to abort him and urges women to choose life.

I share all of this because so many women are told today that, if they are pregnant and their child is unwanted, they should just have an abortion. I am living proof that this is not the answer. There are many ways to let that child live. Even if you don’t want the baby, someone else does, and God has a plan for that child. Jack Hibbs.

Lessons from the Book of Enoch

Perhaps because of censorship, or not to anger the authorities with the Bible, the Book of Enoch was removed centuries ago from our Bible. Yet, this book is about the Messiah. Jesus himself quotes it, and the apostles mention it in their writings. Enoch prophesied very important matters for our time, including the fate of the spirits that control our world, and the liberating role of the Messiah. Allow me here this short, very personal interpretation, inspired by parts of its contents:

    “It happened that Semiâzâ, the devil, and his henchmen – they are about two dozens mentioned by their names –, held this discussion : “We had succeeded in taking over the place that God created for his sons. However, it is now undeniable that by having had this crazy idea of ​giving to men the possibility of inviting him to dwell in them by his Holy Spirit, God played a very bad trick on us since henceforth, men are now potentially very superior to us. What are we going to do now not to be subjugated by them and to preserve our supremacy on the world? ” So, one of the spirits who were there suggested: “We should just make sure that they don't need to find out who they are! To do that, let's establish a structure which is in all points similar to that which God wishes to put in place to bring them to emancipation, but a system that we will keep under control and which will serve our interests ”. The devil said : “This is a great idea that I should have had myself ! We will continue to politicize the world and we will ensure that this reality which is so dreadful to us, never goes beyond the framework of a religion. We will slip into their cosmogony under false identities and become their pantheon. We can then castrate them spiritually and make them lose what remains of their authority, while ourselves will become stronger through their worship. Let's continue to assist men as we have done so far, so that they see us as their indispensable allies. Let's take advantage of God's righteousness and equitable character in the liberty he has given them : So long as they swear allegiance to us, God will not authorize himself to wipe us from the scene, and we will remain the masters of their world. Let's give them the technological means to control their universe so they don't need to exercise faith. Instead of self-healing, they can cure themselves with chemicals, medical acts and placebos. They will attain the beauty they are after with all sorts of artifices. They have to think they're smart : let's give them a culture. Let them think that the values they defend are those that God has established, by imparting to them traditions. To control them through the economy, we will force them to get everything for money. Let's overwhelm them with work and entertain their free time : They must not have time to think. They must believe that their security is their responsibility, and that peace is synonymous with violence – we will help them refine the art of war. They have to suffer, enough so that they need God, and then we can hammer home that we are God and that their lives are in our hands. Overwhelmed, they will soon regard this Gospel as a torment and the disciples of Christ as a threat to their peace. In last resort, we will bring forward our own Messiah to prolounge our reign on Earth. If we succeed, their Messiah will only have to stay where he is, and our existence will not be threatened”.   (Unpublished lessons from the Book of Enoch, and the New Testament).

NO PLAGUE

Curry Blake addresses the coronavirus menace by exposing some of the scriptural bases, for relying on God for spiritual protection. And most importantly, he explains how spiritual protection works, and how we can apply it to our lives. A very relevant message.

Love is patient and it does not presume. Faith in divine protection does not exempt us from keeping the rules issued by the authorities in matters of prevention and from having a civic behaviour. If you don't care, don't blame your preacher.

 

FEAR VERSUS FAITH

The expression “Peur bleue” (blue fear) was used by doctors in the 19th century, to describe the condition of some patients. They had noticed that people who where experiencing anguish or who were panicking, had a cyanotic complexion due to poor oxygenation. But some will trace the expression back to the Middle Ages, when the plague spread across Europe. The grey complexion of people who had the disease would be at the origin of the expression. The populations were seized with a “blue fear” at the approach of the “black death”, the great grim reaper who has neither judgment nor moods. Many doctors today, know that fear predisposes us to get the sickness we dread – it could be cancer, or it could be a bad flu. The somatization of mental disorders or weaknesses, is a recognized medical fact. Job, in another era, said : “What I dread is exactly what I get !” Fortune tellers make a business out of this principle. However, medicine is not drawing the appropriate lessons from this teaching, mostly because, in that discipline, financial interests mingle in with reason. Fear has been shown to weaken our immune defences. Our organs start to malfunction. One can even die of fear, by anticipating a great danger. This is something we are seeing more and more in these times of a pandemic. …

Such person continues to fight and even to smile, albeit she feels attacked in her health. But to find out, this person is offered to take the COVID-19 test. Then she is told with a serious tone of voice that the test is positive. And since she has been informed previously that, due to her age or her condition, she is in the category of those that will likely die from the virus, you see that person instantly change colour and collapse. From there, a flick will send her in the other world. What has happened in the invisible is that, in the absence of a true faith in a living God, present inside her and who protects her, – or by a faith misplaced, in man, in religion or medicine –, that person has yielded to a spirit of fear. Then, sickness, which in many instances is also a spirit and a thief, broke in and took hold of the house, so to say. Demons “work” in teams of three or more: These two then invited a spirit of death to join in their gruesome party, and they completely overcame that person and killed her. Everything was worked out on a suggestive level, and succeeded because the person knew of no other alternative than to undergo the tyranny.

Like all demonic spirits, fear is a liar. It drives us to make poor decisions, decisions that will pre-empt us. In the book of Revelation, we read that, when they will be afflicted with the plagues, instead of welcoming God who comes to their rescue, men will raise their fists against him and curse him. They will be like wild dogs caught in a snare, who attacks anyone tries to set them free. That's why the Bible tells us not to fear, if not God alone. But if, instead of putting our faith in the news, which by definition are bad – the roaring and tossing of the sea as the Bible puts it –, we place it in the things that God promises us in the Bible, then, a thousand could fall by our side, we will remain standing! This is what God promises in the psalm quoted below. We cannot always prevent a bird from landing on our branches, but we can certainly prevent it from nesting there. Paul was bitten by a viper which hung on his hand, but after shaking it in the fire, he acted as if nothing had happened and felt no harm at all. Why? Because instead of expecting that he would feel bad and swell, he relied on the word of Christ who affirms that nothing can harm us. Just because we have a few symptoms doesn't mean we have to get sick, let alone die. And it is not because our healing is not instantaneous that we must stop believing in it! “Faith is a firm assurance of the things we hope for, a demonstration of those we do not see”. Hebrews 11. After his disgrace, Cain was irritated and he was very dejected. God had said to him: “Certainly, if you do what is right, you will lift up your head. But if you refuse to do what is right, then watch out! Sin is crouching at the door, eager to control you. But you must subdue it and be its master”. Cain nevertheless gave way to jealousy and he became a murderer. Once banished, he knew that, far from the face of God, he would himself become a prey. But God told him that if someone killed him, he would be avenged seven times, and he put a sign over him so that whoever met him would not kill him (Genesis 4). As humans, we have at least two levels of spiritual protection. One is acquired, like our immune system. Now, inspired from pastor Curry Blake's teachings, there is another spiritual immune system, much more effective, that must be exercised by our will: “subdue the spirit of sin and its schemes”. Take for instance : vaccines. You will never be fully protected by vaccines, because germs change shape all the time. And with the vaccination, you are injected with other things that will eventually kill you, but usually too slowly for you to realize it. Vaccines are nothing more than a diluted form of death. But if you develop your spiritual immune system, the abundance of life will protected you for almost everything, including poison. By analogy, in intensive care units, they have those special hyper-bar cells, where no germs can enter with the air. If we remain filled with the Holy Spirit and in faith, there is no space for any demon, which usually work out the sickness, to slip in us, and if he was there he will soon regret it. So how do we remain filled? By filling ourselves with life, which is the word of God, and by having faith in it as in God himself.

For the good news, in all these things, is that the process that allows fear to dominate us, also works the other way ! Faith and heartfelt attachment to the Father's promises protect and strengthen us. They make us invisible. When an enemy approaches, he sees a protective wall, and then he sees God and flees for his life. Cornered at the Red Sea, the Israelites saw the waters share in two to let them pass through, and then swallow those who had thrown their children into the Nile. To a man who had just been told that his daughter had been taken away by death, Jesus said: “Don’t be afraid; just believe.” Then he spoke to the lifeless body, commanded it to get up, and returned a girl in perfect health to her parents. Pastor Curry Blake relates the case of preacher J.G. Lake, a famous Jesus healer who in the 1930s, volunteered with his team to evacuate the dead bodies from an epidemic that was ravaging South Africa. Dumbfounded, the doctors saw under the microscope that the samples of infected fluids that came in contact with their skin were neutralized. Jesus wasn't afraid to touch the lepers. But leprosy had reasons to be afraid. Where did this strange power come from? In Romans 8, Paul says that “the power of the Spirit who gives us life in union with Jesus Christ has set us free from the power of sin and death.” Now, this domination of the Spirit is exercised over sickness and death. Let's understand that it is not denying the disease that will cure us, but it is appealing to a higher reality. Faith calls into existence things that are not as if they were, says Paul in Romans 4:17. To declare our healing is to withdraw from the provision that God has already placed in our heavenly bank account, if I may say so, an understanding that will be most essential in the times to come.

Jesus warned us that there would be rumours of wars, earthquakes and epidemics. “Don't be alarmed, because these things have to happen,” he said. In other words, we should consider these events as the pangs of the birth of a new humanity. If a Pharaoh who had not known Joseph, resisted beyond all good sense Moses' request to let his people go, then the advent of the reign of God on earth will not come without meeting strong resistance. That's why, when facing the terrors that his enemies will spread in an increasing manner in order to strengthen their control over the peoples of the earth, we cannot remain passive. God invites us to step in his camp, which we do by making sure that we get rid of our idols and other substitutes for Him, so that we won't be judged with them, and by identifying with his beloved son. Shaking is coming. “The Lord is king! He is robed in majesty. Indeed, the Lord is robed in majesty and armed with strength. The world stands firm and cannot be shaken”. Psalm 93. But because wickedness now prevails, anything that can be shaken will have to be shaken. Over the next few years or decades, we will experience some upheavals, which is an understatement. Medicine will have to face a race which seems already lost. The political and societal context will become explosive. There will be famine. But we will contain those problems and survive, if we take hold of the spiritual weapons that God has prepared to keep us safe. Many are rightly concerned that the ordeal we are going through at the moment is just a taste of what lies ahead. Our new prophets are scientists. They watch the changes happening everywhere and sound the alarm, but nobody listens. It is with good reason that Jesus compares us to sheep. As long as we have something to graze on, we will not look up from our pasture. Yet Jesus tries to teach us that there are other sources of food. “My food is to do the will of the one who sent me”. “Man will not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes out of the mouth of God.” One day, Jesus was hungry. He came by a fig tree whose foliage was magnificent and promising of satiety, but he found no fruit on it. To his disciples' amazement, he cursed that fig tree. The next day, his disciples saw that it had dried. Religion without power is condemned. “The axe is already laid at the root. Any tree that does not produce good fruit will be cut down and thrown into the fire.” The disciples were puzzled at this sign. “I tell you, if you had faith like a mustard seed, you would say to this mountain: move from here to there, and it would obey you”. From here comes the saying: “Faith that moves mountains”.

Jesus affirmed solemnly in three of the Gospels (Matthew 24, Mark 13, Luke 21), that when the signs of his coming will start to appear, all of his prophecies about the end of a political world and the beginning of the millennium of peace, will finalize over the course of a single generation. According to scholars, the sign of the re-greening fig tree represents the proclamation of independence of the State of Israel, in 1948. How many years does a generation encompass? Eighty years, ninety years? Do the math. If we do not adopt his long-term vision, we will go from disappointment to disappointment, and we risk being swept away. Does this mean that we should stop living and just hold on our breath? On the contrary. But we must live as a prophetic people, each at our level. What Jesus wants, is for us to raise our heads until our deliverance comes, because the period of history we are entering will be the exciting outcome of millennia of an extraordinary human adventure, the glorious end of a film whose story had a rather bad start, before the shooting of the next episode and the rebounding of the story in exciting new adventures. Do we want to be co-creators of the new world? The ultimate truth, that which we must cling onto now, is that, if we are in Jesus, then for us death has been swallowed up in Christ's victory, and we no longer have to worry about it. Fear comes from evidences that we believe, cannot be changed. In a war, what can you do to submit people for whom death represents at most a promotion? Within religions, circulate all kinds of whimsical myths about what awaits us after death. But what Jesus promises us, is holiness. This holiness is the dimension in which man exists as an immortal being. Death temporarily deprives us of our body, which is our mean of interacting with this material world, but it has no influence on our true person, who continues to exist. And Jesus promises us the resurrection in a glorious body – a veritable metamorphosis. The war we are undergoing is first and foremost a psychological war, based on truth and lies, and the victory stands on a spiritual level and must be reached with spiritual weapons. “Don’t be afraid of those who want to kill your body; they cannot touch your soul. But Fear only God, who holds your eternal destiny in his hand”. “Whoever believes in me lives forever, even if he dies”.

But before we reach that place, we have an important mission to fulfil. In Isaiah 41:10, God says: “You are my servant, I have chosen you and have not rejected you. So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” In Psalm 91, a psalm that tradition attributes to Moses, God promises protection and peace in the most difficult circumstances, for those who will pray for his kingdom to come. This psalm, which I will quote here before going on, is the “quintessential” antidote to indistinct threats, and it is could be useful to memorize it. For when I hear that almost a thousand Italians and Spaniards died from the Coronavirus in one day, it makes me extremely sad. They didn't have to die. They died however, because they did not know that God made a supernatural healing solution available to us – no one had told them, not even the Pope ! In their distress, they placed themselves into the hands of other men, by putting their hopes in the powerless rites of their religion or in the protection of their tutelary gods, or more pragmatically, in the medical care system, which is also a form of religion. This must be said, so that others can escape, despite the pain and the sorrow which are at the heart of all these tragic situations. Our mind and our strength, are made up of the information to which we subscribe. This may be the right time to turn off the television set, and to tune up onto God.

 

“Do not learn the ways of the nations or be terrified by signs in the heavens, though the nations are terrified by them. For the practices of the peoples are worthless; they cut a tree out of the forest, and a craftsman shapes it with his chisel. They adorn it with silver and gold; they fasten it with hammer and nails so it will not totter. Like a scarecrow in a cucumber field, their idols cannot speak; they must be carried because they cannot walk. Do not fear them; they can do no harm nor can they do any good.”     Jeremiah 10.

 


 

Psalm 91

Whoever dwells under the shelter of the Most High (Elyon) rests in the shade of the Almighty (Shaddai).
2 I said to the Lord (YHVH Adonaï), my refuge and my stronghold, my God (Elohim) in whom I trust.
3 For it is he who delivers you from the net of the bird-catcher, from the plague and its ravages.
4 He will cover you with his feathers, and you will find refuge under his wings. His loyalty is a shield and a breastplate.
5 You shall not fear the terrors of the night, nor the arrow that flies by day,
6 Neither the plague that walks in darkness, Nor the contagion that strikes in the middle of the day.
7 Let a thousand fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand, you will not be hit;
8 Only with your eyes will you look, and you will see the retribution of the wicked.
9 For you are my dwelling place, O Lord ! You make the Most High your refuge.
10 No misfortune will happen to you, No plague will come near your tent.
11 For he will command his angels to keep you in all your ways;
12 They will carry you on your hands, lest your foot strike a stone.
13 You will tread on the lion and on the asp; you will tread on the lion cub and the dragon.
14 Since he loves me, I will deliver him; I will protect him, since he knows my name.
15 He will call on me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in distress, I will deliver him and I will glorify him.
16 I will satisfy him with a long life, and I will show him my salvation (Yeshuw'ah, Yeshua w).

 

 


 

How can we place ourselves under divine protection?

“Stay in the shelter of the Most High and rest in his shade”, suggests this psalm. Let's be clear: What we are going through right now is not an apocalyptic plague, not yet. Mad scientists seem to have played with fire, and corruption at all levels has done the rest. These trials are nevertheless allowed by a loving father who wants to draw the attention of his children. Sometimes, a lioness will bring back a living animal to her cubs, to teach them to use their weapons. God does not want us to suffer these things as punishment, but He wants us to turn them into opportunities to show him what we can do. “Out of the eater comes something to eat. Out of the strong comes something sweet” said enigmatically Samson. “When a lion or a bear came and took a sheep from my father's flock, I ran after him, I struck him, and I tore the sheep from its mouth. If he stood against me, I would grab him by the throat, hit him, and kill him. ” David got his start in dealing with a few foxes, and later bears, and even lions, before tackling his Goliath and the enemy armies of the Kingdom of Israel. We are warriors. God did not put us on this earth to provide food for microscopic viruses. Someone told me that surprisingly, it is not the people of the favelas who are the most affected by the virus. This only half surprises me, because people who live in a precarious situation have learned to fight in order to live. Illness is a spiritual enemy, and those who over-trust readily available medical care have lost their ability to fight. On the contrary, they tend to welcome sickness as a normal thing of life or as part of ageing process. We must forbid sickness to approach us, our house and our beloved ones, and the name of Jesus gives us that authority.  …

Our weapons are not carnal (medical) says Paul, but they are mighty because they appeal to God. Leave to our governments, repression, confinement, drugs and vaccines. In regard to what is available to us, these things are inadequate. Instead, God invites us to stand on a higher level of spiritual authority. By seeking first the reign of God and his justice, we can stand on faith and experience a peace which is the tangible sign of his sovereign presence. It is the opposite of this paralysing fear which the world undergoes and to which one reacts by a feverish agitation. Imagine rather: this supreme being, immensely powerful, who stands between us and the evil that could reach us – and even: who wants to hide us in his “feathers”. Well in the new reality that Jesus has brought to us, God is virtually in each one of us.

“Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you who kill the prophets and stone those sent to you, how often I have longed to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, and you were not willing. Look, your house is left to you desolate. I tell you, you will not see me again until you say, ‘Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.’” Luke 13:33-35

Out of his vehicle, he runs big risk, but when a bush photographer is driving his convertible Land-Rover, he makes one with his vehicle for the lion who watches it, even if I shudder when I realize that it would actually take a jump for the lion to extract a treat from its metal box… The few lions who broke the rule have been shot. It's been told that Satan took a nasty blow in the wing at Golgotha, and since that time he is stranded on earth.

When an eaglet is hidden in the eagle's feathers, it makes one with the eagle and it has nothing to fear. Since he loves me, I will deliver him; I will protect him, since he knows my name”. It is perhaps the right time for some to take this first decisive step towards the One who holds out his arms to them. In these hectic times, let's show our gratitude by trusting us in him and by entrusting our loved ones to him. John says in his epistle that “There is no fear in love. Perfect love puts fear out of our hearts. People have fear when they are afraid of being punished”. Moses knew that a pure conscience makes us strong and that it acts as an invisible shield. But don't stop there! Just as with a life companion, loving God means wanting to know Him a little more intimately every day. God does not have only one name. But in each circumstance of our lives, he reveals to us a complementary aspect of his person, an aspect that saves us and elevates us. Conversely, the less we know God and the more we are inclined to go drink from other sources and to attract fellow travellers who will distance us from his presence.

Hear me, my people, and I will warn you— if you would only listen to me, Israel! You shall have no foreign god among you; you shall not worship any god other than me. I am the Lord your God, who brought you up out of Egypt. Open wide your mouth and I will fill it. “But my people would not listen to me; Israel would not submit to me. So I gave them over to their stubborn hearts to follow their own devices. “If my people would only listen to me, if Israel would only follow my ways, how quickly I would subdue their enemies and turn my hand against their foes! Those who hate the Lord would cringe before him, and their punishment would last forever. But you would be fed with the finest of wheat; with honey from the rock I would satisfy you.” Psalm 81. How does one come to this morbid contemplation which characterizes religion in its generic form? The result of the veneration of helpless idols is spiritual castration. Any thing or person in which we place our hopes, and which disengages us from taking responsibilities and action, is a dumb idol. Read also my excerpt on the need for a new birth.

The gods of the Egyptians and their Queen of Heaven were not enough to save them from the plagues, since it is in reality their worship which caused them the plagues. Remember : Pharaoh had forced the Israelites to offer their male toddlers to Sobek, their crocodile god, to prevent the Hebrews from outnumbering them. They were also enslaved to build stupid pyramids and temples to Osiris, the god who invented religion. Where have these Egyptians gone today? Ezekiel prophesied, “I will make the land of Egypt desolate among the desolate countries, and its cities shall be deserted among the cities that were desolate. For forty years. I will spread the Egyptians among the nations, I will disperse them in various countries”. As the Jews were dispersed throughout the world, so were the Egyptians, and today they are among us with their culture and their values, those which brought God's punishment to their world. The Egyptians are all those who build our world but who have not bowed their knee before the Christ of God alone, the one who redeemed them with his blood. We see them every day. They can be our father or our mother, our husband or wife. We were also all of them in the past, as Paul reminds the Ephesians. God warns us innumerable times in the Bible of what will happen if we take liberties by tolerating in our hearts or in our houses, “high places” of pagan worship. But as a by-product of civilization and religious tradition, high places are in reality rampant in our culture. These idols are raised by the devil in order to weaken us, because their veneration can only provoke the jealousy of God. By turning his eyes away, God will leave us at the reach of the curse. “Be completely faithful to the Lord”. Deut 18:13. Either our heart belongs to him entirely, or he is not our Lord at all. It is with great jealousy that God loves us and it is by means of a precious blood that he has redeemed us. “Why do you call me Lord, Lord, and don't do what I tell you?” Here is what Jesus' mother has advised us : “Do everything Jesus tells you”. Even Pharaoh, the father of the Egyptians, said to them: “Go to Joseph and do what he tells you”. Joseph was a type of Christ, and because they knew to recognize that his wisdom came from a God that was superior to theirs, all the Egyptians were spared from famine. But God's people had placed itself in Pharaoh's shadow. God later sent Moses to guide his people out of the trap they had set themselves in, precisely for the sake of food safety. But an alliance had to be established first. The Israelites had to sacrifice a lamb and sprinkle the lintels of their houses with its blood. This sign would keep the angel of death away when he crossed Egypt. Why is this virus so dangerous for our seniors? Our elders represent the heritage, the bulwark of wisdom in the face of decaying values, and as such, are the primary target of the Spirits of Chaos. These spirits have found our weak point because the elders are responsible for passing unjust laws, such as promoting abortion. There is always a return, a law of sowing and reaping. The Egyptians had forced the Israelites to kill their baby boys by throwing them into the Nile as sacrifices to the crocodile god, but baby Moses escaped. Herod killed the baby boys of the Israelites when he understood that a contender to his rulership was born in the land, but baby Jesus escaped. How many unborn servants of Jesus were amongst the millions aborted babies disposed of for our comfort? … All the first-borns of the Egyptians died that night, young and old, but the first-borns of the Israelites were protected, not by vaccines, but by the blood of a lamb. Our elders don't have to die however. God sacrificed his only Son – his first-born – in our behalf. His blood, if we accept the covenant he offers us, covers our faults and becomes the safe conduct which gives us access to God and to life, with the freedom to live before him for many long years and to serve him without fear, as we are reminded of in this psalm. Therefore, there should not be a premature death of his saints unless it is viewed as a consented sacrifice. And I will also say that if you had an abortion, yes you received a death mark and you probably know it. But there is forgiveness and there is also healing in the Lamb. You must bring your burden to Jesus and ask Him to heal you. He is the healer of all our sins and there is nothing that he did not take upon himself at the cross.

But the Israelites were not satisfied with the sign. After roasting it in the fire, they were ordered to eat this lamb with bitter herbs, before daybreak and without leaving anything from it. “You prepare a feast for me in the presence of my enemies”. Psalm 23. It must be remembered that they were despised and treated as slaves by those who used them to build the shrines of their religion. This unique food was going to allow them to stand, to cross the Red Sea and to walk towards their promised land. If you have seen Mel Gibson's film, you have had a foretaste of the sufferings that Jesus endured–the worst one can imagine–, so that they would be spared us. He thus took upon himself all the curses that were intended for us, as foretold in Isaiah 53. We were slaves to sin, but he redeemed us. Jesus has made us know Immanuel : God, with us and in us. “It is no longer I who live, it is Christ who lives in me” said the apostle Paul. “If only for this life we have hope in Christ, we are of all people most to be pitied”, he said also. Yes, true Christianity means serving God with sometimes a tinge of bitterness because of the things we will let by, but with great joy in perspective. Someone said: “It's to exchange that which we cannot keep for that which we cannot lose”. Sounds enough of a fair deal to me. The Lord's Supper is all this and much more. Paul told the Romans that if they were identified through their baptism with the death of Jesus, it was so that their lives would from now on reflect his resurrection.

The word which was at the beginning of the creation became flesh and it lived among us, separating the light from the darkness, “treading upon the lion and adder, on the lion cub and the Dragon”. Then Jesus spread that same word over his disciples. It came down from Heaven in the form of tongues of fire. “I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress, My God, in whom I trust”. When we receive the Holy Spirit, we receive this word which has the power to bring into existence the realities of God, those which must prevail over the realities of the world, starting in our lives. “You have already won a victory over them, because the Spirit who lives in you is greater than the spirit who lives in the world”. 1 John 4:4. And even if the devil knows it, he is like a crooked lawyer who will not hesitate to take advantage over us in our ignorance. So we must not hesitate reminding him, as Pastor Curry Blake says. “Submit yourselves therefore to God; resist the devil, and he will flee from you”, said James. When we face calamities, God commits us to fight. The spiritual gift of tongues, which we grasp by faith, is an extremely powerful weapon. “Mighty one, put your sword at your side. Put on glory and majesty as if they were your clothes. In your majesty ride out with power to fight for what is true, humble and fair. Let your right hand do wonderful things. Shoot your sharp arrows into the hearts of your enemies. Let the nations come under your control”. Psalm 45: 3-5. Of course we don't fight against people. But by declaring that God reigns, we engage the angels, who on our declarations made with faith will repress the invisible hordes of destructive spirits who act in the dark. Wolves stay away from fire. A Chinese sage said, “Instead of cursing the darkness, let's light a candle!”. We are invited to be the salt of the earth and the light of the world. But if we let apathy take hold, or fear paralyse us, we could be thrown out as something useless, and then the world may trample on us, warns Jesus in Matthew 5: 10-16. A lamp is only a light when it shines. … “Who knows if you have not come to your royal position for such a time as this?” said Mordecai to his niece, the young Queen Esther, in a very dark moment in their history. Perhaps is it time for us to rekindle the flame !

The Coronavirus will not be eradicated by science and human sacrifice. But God still has a very effective solution that has worked throughout history.


Amazing revelations from Sid Roth's guest prophets.

Coronavirus is Part of a War of Influence – The coronavirus spread is a by-product of political corruption. God will put his finger on what is actually: the pandemic of a demonic spirit of fear. The positive side of these upheavals is that it will change the nature and the depth of the relationship many Christians have with Jesus. Be reassured: there is hope, and in near future!


Ancient Key to Coronavirus

God is Judging the gods of this World – Dr. Candice Smithyman reminds us of an ancient key to stopping the Coronavirus. This mysterious key is as effective against disease and viruses today as it was over 3,000 years ago. In this time of confinement, we have to remember Passover and what God has done for us when he shed the precious blood of Messiah. This blood, which we draw our communion from, makes a world of difference.

Prophecies for 2020 and the coming decade are awesome. Know what God is bringing forward, and participate in the movement.

The future of America and Europe is bright, but we have to get back to a place of prayer.

 

 


 

 

DIVINE HEALING IS FOR EVERYONE

 

  GOD HEALED ME – TESTIMONIES


“Go everywhere and heal the sick”

“The apostles performed many signs and wonders among the people. …  Crowds gathered also from the towns around Jerusalem, bringing their sick and those tormented by unclean spirits, and all were Healed”.   Acts 5:16

 

 

 

The power of words.

In the world of men, each question leads to other questions. While in God's world every question finds its answer and every problem that arises has its solution prepared even before the world began. Healing comes when we take off our religious glasses to see God as he is. For God IS, without variation and without condition. “Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows”.   James 1:17.

 

TEACHING AND HEALING

One of the areas which have been the most difficult to grasp in my life as a Christian, has certainly been Divine healing, and I'm not out of the woods yet. The reason for these difficulties was linked to two main causes: my commitment, which was never total, and the doubt instilled in my spirit by erroneous teachings received, and which continue to be dispensed in evangelical circles. Is this because we have compartmentalized the personality of Christians or even of Christ through a misunderstanding of certain specialization that are taught in 1 Corinthians 12 ? Still, those who teach us the theory of faith are often not the same who demonstrate it in practice. James tells us that we shouldn't just announce the theory – which I take for myself – but that in order to be credible, we should also demonstrate what we say by bringing about the miracles of faith. This statement puts many things in their right place. James takes the image of a person to whom one would say: “Goodbye, keep yourself warm and eat well”, without giving that person anything that contribute to his well-being. That's exactly what we do in churches when we pray for people. You will understand that these words, which are capable of eliciting miracles, stand at a different level of spiritual authority than the vain evangelical speeches or the traditional litanies of the Mass. James says that confessing our sins to one another and anointing with oil, can not hurt, and is even for those who believe in it, a good preparation. But it is in reality prayer, or more exactly, “the fervent declaration of the faith of the righteous”, which will heal the sick. By the way, it is fortunate that it is the fervent prayer of the righteous which has great effectiveness, and not the prayer of the wicked. James puts this way of praying in parallel with the prayer that Elijah made, when he called the drought over the land, then a few years later, when he made the rain come back. The priests of Baal could do nothing to undo his prayers. I can't imagine Elijah reciting a few words and sprinkling holy water o the ground to achieve this result. Jesus himself never performed the rite of anointing with oil, nor did he establish confession of sins as a prerequisite for healing. Jesus did not make a show of his compassion, yet his spiritual authority was sufficient to help the sick and the oppressed, no matter the condition they were in. And contrary to what some say, Jesus healed indeed all the sick who came forward, and not just a handful of the lucky ones. The apostles also healed all the sick without distinction, even if some then took their time to heal… The sacrifice of Jesus on the cross was a total sacrifice, so that our salvation could also be fully accomplished without any reserve on God's side to unleash it.

 

Adhering to these few Bible principles is essential if we want to progress in Divine healing:

  • God created a perfectly healthy world, and he did it by his word of authority. (Genesis 1)

  • To a lesser extent, we create our own universe and we affect it through our words - family background, prosperity, health etc. (Prov 10:14, Prov 12:14, Prov 18:21)

  • The Word of God must be recognized as our ultimate authority. We do not interpret this word on the basis of our experiences, but we continue our experiences until they match with what is written in the word of God: the Bible. "O Lord, your word is established in heaven and for ever, and your faithfulness endures from generation to generation." Ps 119: 89

  • God does not want his creation to be sick. He went so far as to dying for us on a cross to take upon himself our sins and our illnesses. In absolute terms, we have all been healed physically and emotionally and saved spiritually, at the very instant the blood of Jesus was shed. It is now our responsibility to appropriate the benefits of his sacrifice, which are the blessing and its fruits, which our whole health is an integral part. (Isaiah 53)

  • Illness is the manifestation of a demonic attack aimed at weakening us and mortifying us, with the purpose of bringing those who are affected and those around them to doubt the love and power of the Creator, or even to deny his very existence. (Job 1)

  • After demonstrating his divine power during his life among us, Jesus entrusted us with the mission to heal all forms of sickness and infirmity, by the authority of the Holy Spirit that he has given us. Through these manifestations of love that are healings, deliverance and resurrection of the dead, Jesus puts the world in touch with the Kingdom of Heaven, giving us a foretaste of what his reign will be. A reign which, after having won us on an individual level, will be permanently established on Earth. (Mat. 10: 7-8)

  • A Gospel which does not bear the fruit of supernatural healing accessible to all is an inactivated, falsified or incomplete gospel, which cannot reflect the love with which God loved us in Jesus. For Jesus Christ remains the same yesterday, today, and forever. (Hebrews 13: 8)

 

 

For each poison, there is an antidote.

What if, instead of vaccines, drugs or surgical interventions, it was enough to speak out words while being in a certain state of consciousness, to protect, heal and relieve? “Charlatanism”, some will say. “Nonsense”, will the scientific minds think. Yet, this is the solution that God has established to enable us to prosper in this world, while staying perfectly healthy and protected from contagion.

 

The words spoken on us by a person of authority, affect us when we receive them. God teaches us that each word is a seed which will produce fruit “after its kind”. God knows that living in this world can be difficult. Yet he tells us not to worry. He keeps telling us that, as long as we keep our eyes fixed on him and not on our circumstances, we will come through our trials victoriously. This is why it is so important to read the Bible! The Bible contains the antidote to all poisons, and the vaccine against all viruses, whether physical or simply spiritual. For, while it is undeniable that blessings strengthen us by helping us to assert ourselves, the words which cause concern and doubt predispose us to suffer bad omen. However, through these windows on the world that our screens have become, we are the target of a flood of information, which are rarely to our advantage. Advertisers use marketing techniques that tend to bypass our reason. The same goes now for information. Television, even when it has nothing constructive to transmit, wants to keep a captive audience, to make us consume the advertisement which is its source of profit. Another area in which similar things are happening, is precisely the area of ​​health care. …

I regularly hear people unknowingly echoing curses that have been poured out against them. “My mother died of breast cancer and now I have 'my' cancer. So you, my daughter, be checked and tested”… We might know what happened to the unfortunate Angelina Jolie. Who among us has not heard it said: “This disease is genetic and we do not know how to cure it”. We often give to sickness, more importance than we give to our Creator. And right now, we hear the same tune almost every day: “In view of their age and their medical background, these people would not survive the coronavirus". These assertions, even when supported by some statistics, are as many invisible cages and condemnations which, when we receive them, become self-fulfilling prophecies. And what is true in the field of health, is also true in the existential realm: “Always so clumsy”. “He will remain a good-for-nothing”. “Alcoholism is in our family and there is nothing we can do about it”. “You are shy and you will have to live with that”. Yes God warns us that what we sow in words, we will also reap in facts. Worried or desperate people sometimes turn to the rope that will hang them : “Ma'am, I don't see anything about an improvement in your sight. But I must bring you yet another bad news: Your husband is going to die. Yes Madam, on November 1st. … There, that will make us six hundred francs ”(a real situation which has just been reported to me). More often than not, such remarks denote our ignorance of the spiritual laws which govern the physical world. “If a blind man leads another, they will both fall into the ditch,” Jesus tells us. Throughout the Bible, God vehemently denounces the fact that we do not hold on to His promises so that we can enjoy a well-ordered and fulfilling life. He also warns us of what might happen to us if we don't come back to him. But, God will never attack our character and our integrity with condemnatory words. All of these curses, and some can be educated, devious, religious, and sometimes very sophisticated, are demonic attacks. “The thief, who is the devil, comes to steal, kill and destroy”, Jesus tells us. If he can take the blessing away from us, he will do so through our ignorance of who we are and of God's plan for our lives.

But what about contagion? Beyond the laws of genetics or the consequences of a poor lifestyle, of germs or trauma, what allows bad things to reach us and take hold are spiritual breaths. These spirits are also at the origin of certain risky behaviours that will make us sick. Words are brought to us and sometimes even accompanied by spiritual breaths. Who has never felt anger or fear overwhelm them when confronted to persons who were out of their mind? Or, has felt suddenly shy in the presence of a shy person? Advertising is based on the notion of mimicry, to suggest a need. In the same way, one can by simple words, suggest or transmit spirits of weakness or infirmity and various diseases. Doctors know that being depressed or sad and angry makes the bed for the flu. This aspect is too often neglected, and I would like to recall here the works of Dr Paul Tournier on the medicine of the whole person. During their diagnoses, doctors will sometimes unwittingly strengthen the hold that some ailments can have on us. We accept defects and illnesses, because we do not know how to do otherwise. But come to think of it, who was there first : the egg or the chuck? If the gene is at the origin of the human beings, then poor of us if our genes are disabled. But the teaching of Jesus consists precisely in rejecting what harms our integrity, by relying unreservedly on what the Word of God affirms. Because we believe that this word is at the origin of everything, and is therefore the real source of our existence. And this is how a simple declaration of faith made in accordance with the Word of God – the Bible – can change everything. It can protect us from the flu, heal us from cancer and even restore the integrity of our inherited genes. For those who wonder how a link can be made between the spirit that inhabits us and the living matter that constitutes our bodies, I would recommend that they take an interest in the study of microzymas or somatids. Although the word of God is by no means limited to these elementary particles of life, particles which seem to obey spiritually transmitted orders to build cells of all kinds, bacteria or viruses at will, this study shows that the building of our bodies is far from being a frozen automated process.

Scientists too have looked into the mystery of words. They noticed, a long time ago, that words – but in reality the intentions which are conveyed by words – modify the atomic structure of matter. To a lesser extent, music also has an effect on matter and on life. Researchers have experimented with the effect of intentions on ice crystals build up, others on plant growth. Experiments carried out in orphanages have shown that the demonstration of a certain kind of love is essential for the health and the life of a child. Vibratory frequencies are evoked – hence the expression : “to transmit good vibrations”. It is also supposed that angels make themselves visible or invisible by modifying their vibratory frequency. But there is no need to look too far. In reality, Jesus gives us the key to his healing power. In John 6:63, Jesus tells us : “It is the spirit that gives life; the flesh is of no use. The words I have spoken to you are spirit and life”. And those who listened to him could testify. Because just after Jesus had told them something that had scandalized most of them – that in order to live forever, they would have to eat his flesh and drink his blood – Peter replied : “Lord, to whom else shall we go? You have the words of everlasting life” (John 6:68). And in John 8:51, Jesus will also tell them : “Most assuredly, I say to you, if anyone keeps my word, he will never see death”. But the clergy of the time laughed at him and accused him of having a demon. What big secret did the devil not want us to learn about?

Our genes are the fruit of words. By words, I mean intentions or motives. Created by God to function perfectly, all of us have been affected by curses over the generations. Having a child after forty is not the risk factor. Look at Sarah who gave birth at the age of ninety. But what is dangerous at any age, is not being continually regenerated by the Holy Spirit. And being weak, to be subjected to the curses represented by some suggestions. So let us bless from now on the extraordinary creatures we are, fruit, not of the coincidences of biology, but of the loving will of God. Let's ban any condemnatory and disillusioned remarks. And then God (the vivifying Spirit) will accompany us, as promised in Isaiah 58: 8-10. This is not a matter of “auto-suggestion”, or the benefits of “positive thinking” as advocated in the New Age movement. But it is rather a question of abiding into the logic of God, or into what Jesus calls “the Truth”, in order to be able to be ONE with him and thus, to live in the vibratory frequencies of the Spirit that gives life. The Spirit of God is able to imagine things far beyond what we can imagine. He does not care for the limitations we place on ourselves when we see ourselves as mere men or sinners, or about what we think we know of the laws of nature.

In fact, whatever the Spirit of God can imagine, He can also bring into existence. In Mark 11: 23-25 , Jesus said to his disciples: “Truly, I assure you, if anyone says to this hill: “Rise up from there and throw yourself into the sea”, without doubting in his heart, but believing that what he says will come true, the thing will be accomplished for him”. Jesus' approach is the opposite of our religious supplications in which we ask for things – good it is true – but without daring to believe them. For example, Jesus never asked his disciples to pray for the sick. But he told them to “heal the sick”, and this is a vastly different thing. Caught with compassion in presence of our sufferings, Jesus saw concretely in his spirit the sick being delivered and healed through his resolute way of affirming the love of God. And it is this passionate expectation that gave his words miraculous virtues. In fact, Jesus didn't even need to speak out orders. He did this so that his disciples could understand what moved him, but all he had to do was look at a person and imagine the result he wanted to obtain, and this would expose the spirits which tormented this person and force them to leave. For this holy imagination, Jesus tells us again, connects us directly with the Father of the spirits.  “Jesus therefore answered and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, the Son can do nothing by himself. He does nothing but what he sees the Father doing; and whatever the Father does, the Son also does likewise. For the Father loves the Son, and shows him all that he does; and he will show him works greater than these, that you may be astonished”. John 5: 18-20.Jesus adds that if we had even an ounce of that faith, with him, we could move mountains!

But to gain access to this faith, one must have the light heart of a child. This is why Jesus goes on to say: “When you pray or ask, if you have anything against someone, forgive him, so that your heavenly Father will forgive you too your faults”. The real mysticism is perhaps that of children. “If you do not turn on yourselves and become like those little children again, you won't be able to see the Kingdom of God”. " Matt. 18: 3 . All too often this child heart is broken, and sometimes even paralyzed as a result of trauma. We then replaced it with a grown-up spirit, a harsh, mean and unbelieving spirit. But our God knows how to heal wounded spirits and he resuscitates hearts that are bruised. Jeremiah gives us the key to the power that leads to working miracles in the community : motivation and a new spirit. “I will give them one heart, and a new spirit will I put within you; I will take away the heart of stone out of their flesh, and I will give them an heart of flesh, that they may follow my ordinances, and keep and do my statutes; And they will be my people, and I will be their God”. To work miracles is done simply by going to the end of the action of loving, because that is what love tends to. There are, however, miracles and miracles. To allow us to love in God's way, Jesus gives us the Spirit. Paul explains to Timothy that the gospel – or the good news – is that, while living among us, Jesus has destroyed death and brought out life and immortality. This life, and immortality, is quite simply his Spirit living in us. The immortal Spirit of God in them is precisely what made the early disciples so daring and so joyful ! We are so affected by the expression of this false religion where death wears the mask of the spirit… What, at the beginning, led God to create the world, it is the passionate love that he wanted to share with us before we even existed. The new world will be reborn from the ashes of the one we have destroyed, through the miraculous virtues of this divine love, when we will know how to manifest it in all its greatness, one towards the other.

 

 

When Bible teachers and preachers turn out to be the gravediggers of the faith in a God who wants to heal us.

The beginning of a life of power is when we eventually start believing what we read in the Bible and are no longer satisfied with believing only what our experiences or that of others have allowed us to believe. If there are no miracles in our churches, it could be because our theology is based, not on what the Word of God says, but on failure reports. By imagining Godly reasons to unsuccessfulness, we have devised the theology of disillusionment.

Have you been told – as I have –, that Paul's "thorn in the flesh" was an infirmity that God had inflicted on him to prevent him from boasting? Or that this same Paul could not heal Trophim? That even Jesus could not heal many sick people, because they had unbelief in their heart? That if the people we pray for aren't healed, it means that God had another plan for them, and that he wants to “teach” them some lesson through illness? These are prejudices and half-truths which die hard in the church. This other blog gives us a nice sample of the pseudo-doctrines that affect the church. They would be anecdotal if they did not outright destroy the promises of God ! Forty years after the facts, I am still exasperated with this evangelical tradition which, when I got my start, quite simply disarmed me ! Our theology is upside down and we have to put it right, before tackling the subterfuges that we ourselves have developed in our hearts. Because if these pretexts for procrastination were able to convince us, it's also because they make our life so much easier. Yet Jesus set out to demonstrate the redeeming love of the Creator. If healing is slow to come, it is because we have not yet been able to demonstrate the divine authority that he has taken care to transmit to us. What will glorify God is not the stoicism that we will show when we go through trials and sickness. It is our own courage that we demonstrate and we do not need Jesus to die with dignity. But Jesus tells us that what will glorify God is when we demonstrate that there is another kingdom that rules over sickness and death, by removing the sick from Satan's oppression by the finger of God. That's where the Bible's message is, and it's that simple.

 

What was the “thorn in the flesh” that Paul was afflicted with?

Paul, it is true, mentions in one of his letters that he had an illness. It seems that, as he had reached a certain age, his eyesight deteriorated. No text explains this hypothesis, but he mentions his large handwriting, and the fact that if “they” could, some would have plucked out their eyes to give them to him. So some believe that Paul was affected with partial blindness as a late sequel to his encounter with the glorified Christ on the road to Damascus, who's radiance had burned his eyes at the time. But when he mentions this “thorn in the flesh” that he had to undergo with the almost permanent harassment of an angel of Satan, the Lord having answered to his supplications to remove him : “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness”, Paul certainly does not refer to his infirmity, or as some suggest, to a mysterious illness that God would have affected him with in order to preserve him from arrogance and from which he could not heal. He does not think of hunger, cold and bareness which were often his lot during his adventurous life on land and at sea either. But when you read the story of his life, you realize that the revelation that this man got from God was so extraordinary – think of all the letters that he has left us and which are as enlightening as the Gospel itself, think of those pieces of cloth that Paul had touched and which healed the sick on whom they were applied –, that Satan must have assigned one of his best agents to accompany him in order to limit as much as possible the scope of his spiritual conquests. When Paul and Barnabas are in Lystra, some people are so impressed by their speech and by the miracles that the Holy Spirit does through them that they want to build two altars and offer them sacrifices. But the same day, these men suddenly come to their sense and they decide to stone the two apostles. Why? Because the angel of Satan who accompanied Paul had done his job of undermining and disinformation. Undergoing relentlessly the Jews' plots to assassinate him, the contradictions of the magicians, the opposition of the crowds, the lashes, the imprisonments, the disparagement of the church leaders, this war of attrition of the traditions and the law wanting to reinstate the teaching, the betrayals of the false believers and finally death during a bloody crackdown on Christians in Rome : his life was certainly not a long, calm river. “All those who are determined to dedicate themselves to their union with Jesus Christ will experience persecution”, he said to Timothy. But as he writes in Romans 8: “In all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us”.



 


“In the past, people did not understand God, and he ignored this. But now, God tells all people in the world to change their hearts and lives. God has set a day that he will judge all the world with fairness, by the man he chose long ago. And God has proved this to everyone by raising that man from the dead!” Acts 17:30-31

 

Lessons from the Transfiguration.

Peter said to Jesus, “Master, it is good for us to be here. Let us put up three shelters—one for you, one for Moses and one for Elijah.” (He did not know what he was saying.) While he was speaking, a cloud appeared and covered them, and they were afraid as they entered the cloud. A voice came from the cloud, saying, “This is my Son, whom I have chosen; listen to him.” When the voice had spoken, Jesus was standing alone.   Luke 9:28-36

God holds no future for us in man made religion  — Christ alone, is now the future of man.

 

Faith in healing is a simple thing that is offered to us. But just as in the garden, the serpent said : “Did God really say?”, wrong theology has come in the way and we must know some answers to defeat the wrong arguments.




TEACHINGS THAT BUILD OUR FAITH FOR HEALING

 


What is the difference between Power and Authority?

Two words are used in the Bible in relation to healing, deliverance and miracles. These words are exousia and dunamis. Their meaning is very different, but they are often mistaken for one another in our Bible translations. It is very important to know which one applies in each kind of circumstance.
Another of J.P. Jackson's great teaching on that topic.

 

 


JGLM's mission is to demystify divine healing and equip believers.

“We never took NO for an Answer”. When asked : “When did you start to see a breakthrough in healing?” Curry Blake, supervisor of John G. Lake Ministries, answered, “When I decided I was not going to give up until I saw it.” After he and his wife had lost their eldest daughter, Curry made a commitment to God. So when his second daughter tragically died in an accident, he was ready to bring her back to life. Why are people not healed when we pray for them? Why have our prayers no outcome? The reason is simple: We behave like emotional people and we are no longer based on biblical truth. Through what we feel, the enemy will always be able to move us away from what is the point. The parable of the soils comes down to two attitudes: Let yourself be distracted by life and circumstances, or focus on the mission. Based on the New Testament principle that the Spirit of Jesus carries healing within himself and that God' will is to save the entire man – body, mind and spirit –, Christians must impose the divine will on sickness and on death, with faith and obstinacy. A theory confirmed by the remarkable results obtained by its implementation.

 

Place Christ and his ministry back in their rightful place.

Pastor Curry Blake recounts that one day, while he was driving to Dallas, God asked him a strange question: He asked him, "When did Jesus cease being the Christ?" Curry thought, “Hmm, that sounds like a trick question!” So, turning the question back to him, he asked God: “When did Jesus cease to be the Christ?” God said to him, "It would seem that it is as soon as he enters the Christians." Because Christians think they must bring down the power from heaven, when the anointing is now in them ”. See, the world doesn't blame Christians so much for talking about Jesus. But what bothers – and even in the churches – is when you speak of Jesus by mentioning the attributes of Christ, because it is Christ – it is the anointing that breaks the yoke. The world does not want you to manifest this reality. All you are allowed is to be religious.

Divine Healing Technician Training

“Healing has been considered as something mystical that can't be taught or learned. But that's wrong. Jesus did mostly three things when he took his disciples with him : He taught, he preached and he healed. He taught about the Kingdom and he taught on relationship with the Father. When you understand how the Kingdom works and you have a relationship with the Father, you will operate in healing – it's that simple”.



Pastor Curry Blake's Bible teachings

I should perhaps hate the thought that one man got it all. But if you've been wandering through the speeches of countless preachers who say but do not demonstrate what they say, or who advocate new age views and values, give yourself another chance. The Bible based, and not theologically biased teachings of Curry Blake, are pragmatic and effective. Putting things straight and simple is sometimes all it takes to make them workable. “It's all in the Bible. People wait for fancy personal words, yet they have not even started to obey what Jesus already told us to do”.



Building Life Teams

Christians are not a bunch of individuals but they are a body. All the benefits of the Life in Christ are aimed at one thing: Building the House of God. If Jesus is the chief cornerstone, rejected by men but chosen and precious for God, this house must be made of living bricks. The true sense of the word “Ekklesia” with its power and governing purposes, must be rediscovered. “Life teams are a place where you go to grow, and where you grow to go into the world”.



• Curry Blake
Staying focused on Faith. “The Spirit clearly says that in later times, some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons.” 1 Timothy 4. In this essential lesson, Pastor Curry Blake exposes some of the ways in which the enemy has made us ineffective. From habits of life, relationships, hobbies, book readings and entertainment, to watching the exotic hype of a new preacher on Christian TV, every day, the devil spares no effort to have us scattered and to distract us from what really matters, namely: having en entire faith in God.

• Don't Let the devil Submit and Use You. – What is the worth of one single life? In this most earnest message, Curry Blake draws our attention to the importance of the motivations that direct our lives as individuals and as groups or churches.

• Curry BLAKEGoing TO, or just going THROUGH? We need vision. Not this “Get a dream and God will help you fulfil it” attitude, but to get God's dream for our life. He is already working to get it fulfilled and whenever we get on track, we will see it being fulfilled.

• Curry BLAKEDon't sabotage your Blessings. In order to obtain our healing from God, we must be single minded. Some people die of sickness while they have faith in God. Curry Blake explains how the mentality of relying on other people has made us weak. People think they have faith, when in fact they have faith in the traditions they have been taught at church. “The eye is like a lamp for the body. Suppose your eyes are healthy (single minded). Then your whole body will be full of light. But suppose your eyes can’t see well (are double minded). Then your whole body will be full of darkness”. Matthew 6:21-24. See also James 3.

• Curry BLAKE – In this teaching, Curry Blake addresses some issues that tend to plague today's Church like for instance: the New Age doctrines that say that “there is something more”: need for additional baptisms, gifts or mantels and anointings required in addition to the gift of the Holy Spirit. He says that if you received the Holy Spirit, you have all that is required to accomplish what Jesus asks of you. What you need now is trusting the Word of God and acting accordingly.

• Curry BLAKE – In a marathon, wearing the appropriate shoes is essential if you want to cross the finish line. Why do our prayers have no result? Why are people not healed when we pray for them? The simple reason is that we are not persuaded that God wants, and that He always wants to heal, and we doubt even more than He can do it through our simple faith in Him. Curry Blake's teaching exposes some of the preconceived ideas, those theological “sacred cows” that prevent faith from being effective. He also points out the scriptural keys that will enable us to obtain a result. Curry Blake says he has not been praying for a sick person for over thirty years. Based on the New Testament principle that the Spirit of Jesus is healing and that his will is always to heal people, Christians must impose this will on sickness with faith and obstinacy. A theory that has been verified by the extraordinary results that can be obtained when it is applied. Curry's master words are: “Keep it simple, press on, and trust God for the results”.

• Curry BLAKE – Healing : Your Legal Right. According to Isaiah 53, our healing started the minute Jesus was tied on the whipping post. It was achieved when he was nailed to the cross. Anything we would ad to that or do, to make it happen, is unbelief”.

Christ Centred Healing Seminar.

In this seminar, Roger Sapp talks on how he went from praying for the sick and seeing no results, to bringing Jesus' healing and watch Him do the work. He emphasizes the fact that healing is not “anointing dependent” as some would have us to believe, but that you simply have to trust Jesus, and marvel. Another testimony of how thinking right will bring it right. (The sound problem at the beginning gets fixed after a while).


 

They Acted on their Faith.

Tommy Lee OSBORN was a renowned miracle worker. In this message, he explains for a pentecostal congregation, how the Gospel must be acted on. “Then the disciples went out and preached everywhere, and the Lord worked with them and confirmed his word by the signs that accompanied it”. I would not endorse all preachers from the Pentecostal movement. Some have made faith their god and the message a business. But T.L. Osborn (1923-2013) has a solid reputation of being a man of compassion and integrity who has worked hard for the Gospel, bringing Jesus Christ to millions of unreached people in over 90 nations.

John Paul JACKSON
Discusses Angels, Demons, and Spiritual Beings

Today, it is extremely important to learn how to recognize the character of God, of his angels, and to know in what ways the spirits of Lucifer, of the demons and the coming Antichrist, differ. The best way to gain that knowledge is by getting to know God personally and by studying what his word says. Then it will be easy for us to spot the fake.

One of the most effective ways the devil has devised to ruin the lives of Christians is in imitating the leading of God in words, in thoughts and even in our dreams. This is a fundamental point of the Christian life, but is often overlooked. To get to know the Word is vital, for God will NEVER tell us something that goes against his principles.

The Protestant Reformation vs. The New Apostolic Reformation

“Scriptura Sola” was the motive of the Reformation. But today's protestantism is threatened by a so called “New Apostolic Reformation”, which has divorced itself from this original statement to declare that there are now new apostles, who are coming with new revelations and new rules for a new era. This fresh twist of an old heresy is a very reckless move and it puts many Christians, especially young unexperimented ones, in jeopardy.


 

FROM BABYLON TO AMERICA – World History in Bible Prophecy.

Sometimes, there is a reluctance to relay information because of some disagreement with those who provide it. Paul had a deep friendship with Christians from Galatia, and he saluted their quest for truth. He nevertheless held the mirror to them. “If righteousness comes through keeping the Law, then the suffering and death of Christ would have had no purpose.” In Hebrews 4, Paul also redefines the true meaning of “entering God's rest”. That being said, the study that I link here is so masterful and it answers so many important questions, that I can only recommend it… if you take it with a grain of salt !


Objects Never To Bring Home.

Artefacts carry spiritual power and are a common cause for bondage, strife and sickness. This video shows some extremes, but especially Christians, should have the wisdom and the sensitivity to get rid of anything that is not truly for the glory of the living God, and this includes also very common religious artefacts.

 

“Do not learn the ways of the nations or be terrified by signs in the heavens, though the nations are terrified by them. For the practices of the peoples are worthless; they cut a tree out of the forest, and a craftsman shapes it with his chisel. They adorn it with silver and gold; they fasten it with hammer and nails so it will not totter. Like a scarecrow in a cucumber field, their idols cannot speak; they must be carried because they cannot walk. Do not fear them; they can do no harm nor can they do any good.”     Jeremiah 10.

The Man who could see Beyond what Eyes see.

I only spent a year and a half altogether down under, but I feel sometimes like an Aussie expat. For several reasons, my soul is tied forever to these islands. At the start of my Christian walk, a Tasmanian former salvation army officer – Tony Fitzgerald – allowed me to be healed by Jesus from a back injury, and that drew my whole attention to Jesus. Then, two fine New Zealanders, pastors Ken Wright and Tom Marshall, injected in me some wisdom while they freed me from spirits of fear. Lately, I've been enlightened by Neville JOHNSON's delightful talks. Neville has rejoined His Lord in September 2019.

What is a man “after God's own Heart” ?

No man is right before God. But some men have a heart after God. That means that when the wind of the righteousness of God blows, they lean into the wind and they don't stand against it. King David for instance, wasn't to be the Messiah of Israel. Nevertheless, God saw in this courageous young man, his servant who would dedicate himself to pursuing the truth for the good of his people. David was a mere mortal and he committed some shameful acts. What if the leader of a country would send a valuable general to the butchery, in order to get his wife? This is what David did. But when the prophet Nathan rebuked him, David humbled himself. After having learned from his mistakes, he stood up again and God did not impeach him. David wasn't perfect just out of the mold, but God had prepared him from a young age to be the man for such a time and circumstances. When everyone in Israel was overcome by fear, he ran towards Goliath. Through his battles, he set Israel free from its enemies from within and out, and restored the land in it's role of a respected leading nation. King Solomon surfed later on the prosperity and peace that his father had brought back to Israel, by his sword and by travailing on his knees. Today, there is a trend for bringing back Baal worship to the country – oh we would say : “to lobby the White House through New Age advisers”.   “Deep seated religious beliefs must be changed, in order to change the laws”.   You would think that this was Joseph Stalin’s leitmotiv. In fact, Mrs Clinton made that declaration of war against America in one of her public speeches. So when God raises a man to oppose politics aimed at destroying the strength of a nation, we should support him, even if his ways leave us a little perplexed at times.


Donald Trump is not King David, but many seers consider him as the new Jehu, the guy by whom God fulfilled the word given by the prophet Elijah, to bring an end to the corrupt satanic government of Queen Jezebel and King Ahab.

• Donald TRUMP interview 1980 – “America has a great potential, but unfortunately the most capable people are afraid of politics and are not running for office”.

Johnny Enlow – The End of the World as we Know it.

“God said to me : President Trump is going to save you from things you don't even know you have to be saved from.”


Prophecies for 2020 and the coming decade are awesome. Know what God is bringing forward, to participate in the movement.

The future of America and Europe is bright, but we have to get back to a place of prayer.


• Kim CLEMENT – Trump Prophecies. Amazingly accurate today.

Kim Clement might have been controversial as a person and due to his link with the NAR. But this prophecy, given for parts in 2014 and in 2007, is stunning.


• Donald TRUMP – “Politicians are all talk–no action”. Do you remember Father Pierre-René Monnier's fable?  It was about a rough, barking but loyal dog, and a sweet-eyed flattering and treacherous pussy-cat…

Religion versus Christianity. New release. Foreword by Curry Blake.

Far too many Christians are not walking in the truth of who they are in Christ and who He is in them. Religion and false doctrine are killers of faith. In this book, Marty Nystrom outlines some false doctrines that have been taught in the church for generations, and breaks down each one of these to bring proper Biblical truths to many of the questions you may have struggled with for years!


A New Covenant for a New Creation.  How the New Creation and the New Covenant complete one another.

In his book, Brother Curry BLAKE explains the necessity and the practical results of Jesus' finished work. Jesus Himself promised us (believers) that we could do whatever He did, and even greater works! The question remains, WHY? And HOW? With the experiences of over 40 years of Biblical study and practical application, Brother Curry has pieced together the hidden mystery of the New Creation, and the New Covenant.


In search of the True Light.  Are all religions different paths to the same God?

After following an Indian Guru and teaching Yoga classes, Mike Shreve was eventually reached by the True Light of Christ. This was not the benefit of his former quests but rather a rescue operation performed by the Spirit of God. In this comprehensive book, Mike speaks pragmatically about most of the world's religions.


Larson's book of World Religions and Alternative Spirituality. The facts.

You probably have an idea of who stands behind Satanism. But do you know who stands behind Mormonism and Freemasonry? Did you know that many American presidents, starting with G. Washington, made wows in the Masonic lodge? And what about the pseudo-Christian cults? Exorcist and writer Bob Larson confronted thousands of demonized “Christians”, who did not even know who they served.


KUNDALINI WARNING - Are False Spirits Invading the Church?

What are 'Kundalini' spirits? Written by a genuine "Insider," this is the true story of one of the most frightening "invasions" in the history of the church - and the fight to keep it out. Andrew Strom has been part of the Charismatic movement for over 30 years - and was deeply involved in the modern "Prophetic" movement for 11 of those years. He is the founder of RevivalSchool.com and the International REVIVAL List. In this book, Strom traces this mass invasion of false spirits back to 1994, and shows how it culminated in the bizarre events surrounding Todd Bentley and the Lakeland revival in 2008. Also included in this 2015 edition are new warnings about Bill Johnson, Bethel church and the New Age-type practices that have been appearing in that movement.


The Fear Of The Lord.   The Key To Knowing God more Intimately

Would you like to feel God's feelings and receive his vision of the world? Do you want his Holy Spirit to inspire your life, your deeds, your words? John Bevere gives us in this essential book the key that opened him the heart to God. “To fear the Lord is to hate evil” says wisdom.

Gazing Into Glory Study Guide

This study guide is designed for Christians of any background. Its purpose is to encourage us to reach a greater level of spirituality and help us apply the principles of Gazing into Glory, moving from logos head knowledge to rhema heart experience. Bruce Allen emphasizes that to “gaze into glory” is not just for a select few, but for every child of God. He provides clear instruction on how to “get there.”

Moving Supernaturally for the Purposes of God

Translation by Faith… The phrase alone stirs up images of God doing the most extraordinary things through His people! Imagine servants of God moving supernaturally across time, the Earth and the Heavens for the purposes of God. The Bible indicates that Enoch, Elijah, Philip and John as well as many others have allowed God to use them in this way to have divine appointments and accomplish His plan ! In these last days, God is moving people all over the Earth supernaturally for the cause of the Gospel…

They Thought for Themselves: Ten Amazing Jews

Everything in their lives changed for the better !

Curry Blakes Lehre enthüllt einige der vorgefassten Ideen oder theologischen “heiligen Kühe", die den Glauben daran hindern, zu handeln, und weist auch auf die biblischen Schlüssel hin, die es uns ermöglichen, ein Ergebnis zu erzielen. Ausgehend von dem neutestamentlichen Prinzip dass Jesu Geist ist die Heilung, und seine Wille ist immer den Menschen zu heilen, der Christ muss diesen Willen auf die Krankheit mit Glauben und Hartnäckigkeit auferlegen.

Il pastore Curry Blake racconta il caso del predicatore J.G. Lakes, un famoso guaritore che all'inizio del secolo scorso si è offerto volontario con la sua squadra per evacuare i morti da un'epidemia che sta devastando il Sudafrica. Stupiti, i medici hanno scoperto che i campioni di fluidi infetti che venivano a contatto con la loro pelle erano stati neutralizzati. Gesù non aveva paura di toccare i lebbrosi. Ma la lebbra aveva motivo di avere paura. Da dove viene questo strano potere? In Romani 8, Paolo afferma che la legge dello Spirito che ci dà la vita in unione con Gesù Cristo ci ha liberati dalla legge del peccato e della morte. Ora questo dominio dello Spirito viene esercitato sulla malattia e sulla morte.

• Curry BLAKE – Alla domanda "Quando hai iniziato a vedere una svolta nella guarigione?" Curry Blake, supervisore di John G. Lake Ministries, ha risposto: "Quando ho deciso non che avrei rinunciato prima di ottenere quello che ho chiesto. " Dopo aver perso la figlia maggiore, Curry si è impegnato con Dio. Quindi quando la sua seconda figlia morì tragicamente in un incidente, era pronto a riportarla in vita. Perché le persone non sono guarite quando preghiamo per loro? Perché le nostre preghiere non hanno successo? Il motivo è semplice: ci comportiamo come esseri emotivi e non siamo più basati sulla verità biblica. Il nemico cercherà sempre di allontanarci da ciò che conta davvero. La parabola del terreno si riduce a due atteggiamenti: lasciati distrarre dalla vita e dalle circostanze o concentrati sull'essenziale. Partendo dal principio del Nuovo Testamento secondo cui lo Spirito di Gesù porta in sé la guarigione e che la volontà di Dio è di salvare l'uomo - corpo, anima e spirito -, il cristiano deve imporre questa volontà alla malattia e è morto con fede e testardaggine. Una teoria confermata dai notevoli risultati che la sua implementazione rende possibile ottenere.

El rapto de los cristianos: ¿que es?

Es difícil describir un evento que nunca antes había sucedido. Aún más difícil convertirlo en una ficción realista. Es cierto que encontrarás películas de efectos especiales que quisieran ser representativas, escucharás comentarios elaborados, pero creo que las cosas en realidad serán muy simples, aunque sea imposible imaginarlas. Este breve mensaje en inglés, pero que puedes leer en español activando los subtítulos, finalmente me parece un buen comienzo de explicación.

El pastor Curry Blake relata el caso del predicador J.G. Lakes, un famoso sanador que a principios del siglo pasado se ofreció como voluntario con su equipo para evacuar a los muertos de una epidemia que asolaba Sudáfrica. Atónitos, los médicos descubrieron que las muestras de fluidos infectados que entraron en contacto con su piel fueron neutralizadas. Jesús no tuvo miedo de tocar a los leprosos. Pero la lepra tenía motivos para tener miedo. ¿De dónde vino este extraño poder? En Romanos 8, Pablo dice que la ley del Espíritu que nos da vida en unión con Jesucristo nos libera de la ley del pecado y la muerte. Ahora esta dominación del Espíritu se ejerce sobre la enfermedad y la muerte.

 

• Curry BLAKE – Cuando se le preguntó: "¿Cuándo comenzó a ver un avance en la curación?" Curry Blake, supervisor de John G. Lake Ministries, respondió: "Cuando decidí que no iba a parar hasta obtener lo que pedí". Después de perder a su hija mayor, Curry se comprometió con Dios. Entonces, cuando su segunda hija murió trágicamente en un accidente, él estaba listo para devolverla a la vida. ¿Por qué la gente no sana cuando rezamos por ellos? ¿Por qué nuestras oraciones no tienen éxito? La razón es simple: nos comportamos como seres emocionales y ya no estamos basados ​​en la verdad bíblica. El enemigo siempre intentará alejarnos de lo que realmente importa. La parábola del campo se reduce a dos actitudes: déjese distraer por la vida y las circunstancias, o concéntrese en lo esencial. Partiendo del principio del Nuevo Testamento según el cual el Espíritu de Jesús lleva la curación en él y que la voluntad de Dios es salvar al hombre (cuerpo, alma y espíritu), el cristiano debe imponer esta voluntad sobre la enfermedad y la muerta con fe y terquedad. Una teoría confirmada por los notables resultados que su implementación permite obtener.
