…no matter how many Scriptures I brought up, even when I bring the salvational words of Christ Himself, even when I mention passages like John 15 that says that “the branch IN CHRIST that will not bear fruit will be cut off and BURNED”, even then, it will not convince the majority of professing Christians who got deceived by that lie.
The majority of people, including truly born-again Christians probably have evil spirits speaking to them, often in the first person, so people think it’s their own thoughts. But they’re not originating these thoughts. They’re thoughts we hear. They’re demons speaking.
If we ask God a question and get more than one answer, only one voice can be the Holy Spirit. The demons need to be excised.
I discovered this in the early ’80s, having been being born-again in ’74, and haven’t had the problem since.
Not being truly born-again can also be a reason, but may not be the main reason. Many have been truly born-again and experience confusion when trying to hear God’s voice, like I did in the early ’80s, when God showed me what actually was going on.
This past winter the world began to change before our very eyes as the specter of an unknown global pandemic struck fear into the hearts of men. Lockdowns and closures – unthinkable in modern America – reshaped our lives overnight.
The events of this past year exposed a festering disease which has long-been weakening our body politic to the point that we now struggle to summon the necessary strength to restore our health. Things were not going well before 2020, but much of the country was oblivious.
One hundred and ninety years ago, a French writer sailed across the Atlantic to try and understand this bold new experiment called America. Alexis de Tocqueville wanted to see what sort of people could found and sustain a nation which was unlike any other in the history of the world.
He was not primarily interested in saving souls or defending any one particular church or denomination. But he, like our founding fathers, noted one fundamental reality about this new form of representative democracy. It would collapse, he said, if the people abandoned their Christian faith.
Christianity was the glue that held the nation together – the common set of values that justified the equality of all mankind under God. It provided a moral framework that protected individual liberties, while instilling a sense of moral duty to our fellow man. Without this foundation, Tocqueville predicted that a secular representative democracy would create citizens who were hyper individualist, preoccupied with material gain and willing to trample the Natural moral laws of the universe if they could only secure a tyrannical majority. Might would become right in the absence of a higher authority.
America’s religious institutions have been weakening for several generations now. Church attendance is falling, and many younger Americans know next to nothing about Christianity. We can no longer afford to neglect our churches and our prayers. Our children must be forged in faith and a deep love for God whose commands transcend all state and earthly powers.
Without this we cannot possibly save our souls, let alone the heart of this great nation.
5:32:55 “When was the last time we confessed our sins to one another?”
5:33:40 For 30 years, Dana has been accountable to six men, to whom he writes a letter each Sunday, telling them his temptations, frustrations, challenges, relationship with his wife, church situations, etc. — as transparent as he can be. So they pray for him in those areas. He’s accountable to them.
5:36:10 For nine years, every Tuesday night, he and 6-10 guys (some are the same as those above) pray for one another. “That Tuesday night prayer time is a no-miss for me.”
5:38:05 Dana’s serious health problems he’s dealt with and has mostly has overcome!
“Not for these only do I pray, but for those also who believe in me through their word, that they may ALL be ONE; even as you, Father, are in me, and I in you, that they also may be ONE IN US; THAT THE WORLD MAY BELIEVEthat you sent me.
THE GLORY which you have given me, I have GIVEN to them; THAT THEY MAY BE ONE, EVEN AS WE ARE one; I in them, and you in me, that they may be PERFECTED into one; THAT THE WORLD MAY KNOW that you sent me, and loved them, even as you loved me.”
Petra – ‘We Need Jesus’
When will the world see that we need Jesus? If we open our eyes, we will all realize that He loves us, oh yea When will the world see that we need Jesus? When our hearts are as one and believe that He’s the Son of our God
When will the world see that we need Jesus? When sister and brother love one another as one When will the world see that we need Jesus? Will we ever understand Jesus is the Son of man? We must live in the shadow of His love
I first heard the term ’sweaty ministry’ from Mike Fick in the early ’80s, while attending Abbott Loop Bible School. I’ve seen a lot of sweaty ministry since. The majority of pastors and worship leaders fake it, acting like everything is okay when it’s not okay. Some pastors are even giddy, laughing and patting people on the back like used car salesmen.
I have no idea how their hireling worship leaders “lead worship” Sunday after Sunday without God’s presence showing up. The pastors say how great the worship was, when it is spiritually dead. Cranking up the volume of state-of-the-art instrumentation cannot substitute for worshiping in Spirit and in truth.
…“God RESISTS THE PROUD, but GIVES GRACE TO THE HUMBLE.” Be subject therefore to God. But resist the devil, and he will flee from you. DRAW NEAR TO GOD, and HE WILL DRAW NEAR TO YOU. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and PURIFY YOUR HEARTS, you double-minded. Lament, mourn, and weep. Let YOUR LAUGHTER be turned to mourning, and your joy to gloom. Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he will exalt you. – James 4:6-10
‘Sweaty ministry’: Pastors/Worship leaders operating in the flesh, not in the Spirit, faking Christianity
Steve Quayle has been urgently warning about what’s coming for decades, often getting the timing premature, but we may be approaching the thick of it now.
I watched this at 1.75x speed. It’s not all interesting, but it’s good to listen to Quayle at times. Most of his material is now subscription only. I haven’t yet subscribed, but may.
Here are my notes on some key points, whether you watch the discussion or not:
51:25 Praising God when there is no way out!
128:00 “Lust is the appetite of demons expressed through humans.”
141:10 Dana Coverstone’s dream about December 17th, which has hopefully been prayed into not happening: saw a coffin with the Biden family around it.
Quayle is wrong about tithing. It doesn’t matter if it was done one time before the law was given. Now, in the new covenant, we are to be led by the Holy Spirit, Whom they didn’t have before and during the law. The Holy Spirit is to lead us into all truth, Jesus said.
I posted this many years ago. Now, it’s completely obvious that the USA is barely staying alive.
In 2008, I got this clear prophecy while responding to a reader of my blog, who lives in New Zealand. I only wrote down what I easily and clearly heard. It’s been too late for quite some time now to stop what’s coming. This was right after the evangelicals rejected Ron Paul for president, choosing the open warmonger and anti-Constitutionalist, John McCain instead!
We must actually abide in Christ to be “in Christ,” walking not according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.
Satanically led and empowered people can only be successfully opposed by people led by and empowered by God. Real Christianity, actually abiding in Christ produces salt and light from which the darkness flees!
People with “honest and good” hearts want to know the truth and live according to it.
The heart is more than a pump, the seat of our emotions mentioned almost 1,000 times in the New Testament.
Jesus told the parable of the sower in Luke 8:
4 When a great multitude came together, and people from every city were coming to him, he spoke by a parable.5 “The farmer went out to sow his seed. As he sowed, some fell along the road, and it was trampled under foot, and the birds of the sky devoured it.6 Other seed fell on the rock, and as soon as it grew, it withered away, because it had no moisture.7 Other fell amid the thorns, and the thorns grew with it, and choked it.8 Other fell into the good ground, and grew, and produced one hundred times as much fruit.” As he said these things, he called out, “He who has ears to hear, let him hear!”
9 Then his disciples asked him, “What does this parable mean?”
10 He said, “To you it is given to know the mysteries of God’s Kingdom, but to the rest in parables; that ‘seeing they may not see, and hearing they may not understand.’11 Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God.12 Those along the road are those who hear, then the devil comes, and takes away the word from their heart, that they may not believe and be saved.13 Those on the rock are they who, when they hear, receive the word with joy; but these have no root, who believe for a while, then fall away in time of temptation.14 That which fell among the thorns, these are those who have heard, and as they go on their way they are choked with cares, riches, and pleasures of life, and bring no fruit to maturity.15 Those in the good ground, these are those who with an honest and good heart, having heard the word, hold it tightly, and produce fruit with perseverance.
“Therefore watch carefully how you walk, not as unwise, but as wise; redeeming the time, because the days are evil. Therefore don’t be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is. Don’t be drunken with wine, in which is dissipation, but be filled with the Spirit, speaking to one another in psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs; singing, and making melody in your heart to the Lord; giving thanks always concerning all things in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, to God, even the Father; subjecting yourselves to one another in the fear of Christ.” – Ephesians 5:15-21
