V. 17. The likeness of any beast that is on the earth, the likeness of any winged fowl that flieth in the air.

V.39. Know therefore this day, and consider it in thine heart, that the LORD he is God in heaven above, and upon the earth beneath: there is none else.(John 3:13)

V. 40. Thou halt keep therefore his statutes, and his commandments, which I command thee this day, that it may go well with thee, and with thy children after thee, and thou mayest prolong thy days upon the earth which the LORD thy God giveth thee, for ever.

Deuteronomy 7: 1. When the LORD thy God shall bring thee into the land whither thou goest to possess it, and hath cast out many nations before thee, . . . greater and mightier than thou;

V. 2 And when the LORD thy God shall deliver them before thee; thou shalt smite them, and utterly destroy them; thou shalt make no covenant with them, nor shew mercy unto them:

V. 25. Neither is worshipped with men’s hands, as though he needed any thing, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things;

V. 31. Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead.

Romans 1: 17. For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith. ( 2cor. 5: 7; Heb. 11: 1- 6;Lk. 18: 8 )
V. 18. For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;

CHURCH – A PEOPLE, NOT A BUILDING

Read :-Matthew chapters 5, 6, & 7: ( these are the Sayings of Jesus).

Matthew 7:24-27. Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock(the Word of God )

And everyone that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it. There is an ever increasing flood of spiritual deception by every wind of doctrine raining down on earth from Satan since the days of Martin Luther. It is becoming a whirlwind of destruction on the lives of those engaged in a multitude of spiritual activity which is removing them from the one and only true God who does not want religion. Read Ezekiel 28:12-19 carefully. Satan is the author of ALL religion, and most of the music industry, secular and religious. Remember…God’s people are few in number, not many.

Matthew 7:13-14. Enter ye in at the strait gate(that means restrictive): for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way(restricted by the Word), which leadeth unto life(John 6:63), and few there be that find it(John 6:66 – the origin of the mark of the beast ..From that time many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him. Simply put, they could not live by every word that proceedeth from the mouth of God(Matt.4:4), nor could they drink the cup of suffering , even unto the death(Matt.16:24-25; Matt.26:42), as Jesus had done for us.

1Peter 4:1-2. Forasmuch then as Christ hath suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves likewise with the same mind: for he that hath suffered in the flesh hath ceased from sin; That he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh to the lusts of men, but to the will of God.

2Timothy 2:11-13. It is a faithful saying: For if we be dead with him, we shall also live with him: If we suffer we shall also reign with him: if we deny him(no suffering), he also will deny us: If we believe not, yet he abideth faithful(to his word), he cannot deny himself(he is the word). And the word saith :-

2Timothy 3:12. Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.
It is necessary to spend quality time in your own closet with your Father which is in heaven(Matt.6:5-14). Bring your King James bible with you(it is the Word of God), and study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth(2Tim.2:15). Then you will learn how to be a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect will of God. For I say, through the grace that is given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.(Romans 12:1-3).

2Corinthians 4:15-18. For all things are for your sakes, that the abundant grace might through the thanksgiving of many redound to the glory of God. For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day (through the hearing of the Word in your closet). For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory; While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.

Hebrew 11:1. Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. AND….
Romans 10:17. So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
Psalm 138:2. I will worship toward thy holy temple(toward Heaven- Ps.48:1-3), and praise thy name for thy loving kindness, and for thy truth: for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name.

Luke 21:34-36. And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting (partying, dinners, etc.), and drunkenness(religious activities – spiritual drunkenness,
Isaiah 28:7-8), and cares of this life(earthly concerns), and so that day come upon you unawares(when Jesus returns to judge the world and take up his people- only one second coming). For as a snare shall it come upon all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth( and they shall be caught in their worldly preoccupations- Job 35:9-14).

Watch ye therefore, and pray always that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass (while we are still on this planet), and to stand before the Son of man. Since Pentecost there have been many coming in the name of Jesus, claiming Jesus is Lord but deceiving people by religious doctrines and ceremonies which were nailed to the cross. Jesus Christ is the fulfillment of the law. Jesus Christ is the end of the Law.

He taught us how to live in Matthew 5, 6, & 7. That is also what he taught us to teach and do (see Matt.5:17-20). Jesus alone is the Sabbath- He is our rest (Matt. 11:28-30.)

If we rest in him then we must rest in the word. He is the Word. The word of God and Jesus is inseparable. If one is not a word man one has no Jesus. Simple. He alone teaches us by his Holy Spirit (1John 2:27).

Since Pentecost (the spiritual second three and a half years of the tribulation period), there has been the greatest time of tribulation never before seen on earth since time began… the wholesale destruction/killing of God’s people who dare testify for Jesus Christ the living God, and it still goes on today – by the religious extremists of Christianity as well as other religions.

This was warned of by Jesus(John 16:1-2,33). During the first three and a half years there was peace, a literal time through Jesus Christ who was the peace offered to the world by God. When Jesus went to the cross he put an end to the law of sacrifice and oblation(religious service – Daniel 9:27) and gave us a new covenant through through him, the true and only biblically correct reformation (Heb.9:10), and that is only for those who are by called God that they may receive the promise of eternal inheritance (Heb.9:15).

Please note Matthew 22:10-14 – Many are called – not all – and few are chosen. Life is too short to waste time arguing about these kinds of doctrine. There is no such position whereby we can agree to disagree as though we are still all one. Aif we have the wrong doctrine then we have missed the ‘gospel train’. Humble ourselves and read the king james bible and see for yourselves how God can teach you if you ask him.

Job.35:12-13. There they cry, but none giveth answer, because of the pride of evil men. Surely God will not hear vanity, neither will the Almighty regard it (Read from 9-14 and James 4:4,5-8). Christians need to fellowship together for their edification, exhortation, and comfort (1Corin.14:3) and avoid the deceitfulness of sin.

Hebrew 3:12-14. Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God. But exhort one another daily while it is called Today: lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin (religion is blasphemy against the finished work of Jesus at the cross.) For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence (in Christ) stedfast to the end;

We are all builded together into a spiritual habitation to God by Jesus Christ the word of God, the chief cornerstone (1Peter 2:5-9; Eph.2:19-22) and Jesus alone is the builder of this tabernacle/temple/habitation of God (Matt.16:18; Heb.8:1-2; John 2:19-21; Zech.3:8-10; Zech.4:6(not by man’s hands but by God’s power through hearing the word); Zech.6:12-13; Haggai 2:9 Jesus is the latter and greater glory, all these scripture are fulfilled in Jesus. He is the Word, He is the Light. He is the way. He is the truth.

Only one truth – not many variations. He is the master builder. He is the cornerstone, the foundation stone, NOT CAPSTONE as other translations say.. That is Masonic, the work of satan. We , the elect of God, are the called, chosen, and faithful. The antichrist one world government is already here and warring against God’s people and the Lamb (Rev.17:14). They have taken the bible out of the Whitehouse, out of the Senate, out of the Congress, out of the Supreme Court and all the courts, they have taken the bible out of the schools.

They have no hope for there is no hope without the word of God. Even public preaching is outlawed by the I.C.C.P.R. because we say there is absolutely only one way to heaven. Religious denominations exist because they compromise or they could not get registration with the antichrist governments. Our fellowships is in our homes or other places where we may be able to meet, eg ,coffee shops, food centers, in a park, or suchlike place. We meet in groups where fellowship is personal and we talk with one another, not sit there and keep quiet because of the man in front. The true church is a real family, held together by the blood of Jesus. In Jesus name. AMEN. Praise the Lord. If you truly are born again YOU ARE THE CHURCH. God bless you. Amen.

BREAD OF HEAVEN = GARMENT OF HOLINESS

Isaiah 4 ; 1 . And in that day seven women shall take hold of one man, saying. We will eat our own bread, and wear our apparel: only let us be called by thy name, to takeaway a way our reproach.

V.2. In that day shall the Branch of the LORD be beautiful and glorious. And the fruit of the earth be excellent and comely for them that are escaped of Israel. ( The Branch = Jesus: The fruit = born again Christians )- we are escaped from sin, death, and hell . . . Egypt and the world –

2Timothy 2: 19. Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, the Lord knoweth them that are his, and let everyone that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity.
V. 20. But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; some to honour, and some to , dishonour.

V.21. If a man therefore purge himself from these, He shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctifield, and meet for the master’s use and prepared unto every good work.

Luke 13:23-24. Then said one unto him, Lord, are there few that be saved? And he said unto them.
V.24. Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many. I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able.

Matthew 7:14. Because strait is the gate , and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

The bible is clearly saying only a few are truly saved-Mat.22:14. For many are called, but few are chosen.

Matthew 22:2-7.[ The king – God – calls all the eligible people- the Jews- to the wedding of his Son – Jesus-. The leaders and elders of the religious group were too busy with their own programs and lifestyles and would not come. The king-God-was angry that they did not reverence his son and he cast them down and destroyed their city (goodbye natural Israel – mark 11:13).
Now the gospel massage went to the Gentiles- Vs. 8-11 (Acts.13:46); who received the gospel message with gladness (Acts 13:48) and as many as were ordained (chosen) to eternal life believed. However . even among the gentiles were those who want to wear their own garments (works of righteousness ) and still to get in-Vs 11-14. They are relying on their religious service to get to heaven and they insist on being called ‘Christian’. “We have our doctrine-bread-and our programs-garment-but you must call me Christian”.

Remember Mat. 7:21-23. Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say unto me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? And in thy name have cast out devils? And in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them. I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity,, read Vs.24-27.
BREAD OF HEAVEN = JESUS = THE ROCK = THE WORD OF GOD.

Matthew 4:4. Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth from the mouth of God.
John 6:51. I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live forever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.

Proverb 4: 20 – 23 . My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings.

V.21. Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart.

V.22 . For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh.

V. 23. Keep thine heart with all diligence; for out it are the issues of life . ( read Vs. 24 – 27 . )
This is God’s condition for partaking of bread. We are to be committed to constant fellowship with God through his word (Jesus) (1Jn.1:3) , and if the word of has indeed become our lifestyle we are partaking of the bread of heaven.

John 6 : 55 . my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed.
The blood which sanctifies us, is also the cup off sacrificial living.

We put on our garment or gown of holiness which simply means we separate ourselves from the carnal life of worldly pleasure and live a life of total dedication and service to God. (Eph.2:10 applies)

Romans 12: 1. I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, Holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service ( that which is expected of you by God )

V.2 . and be not confirmed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

Romans 11: 36 . . . For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things; to whom be glory for ever. Amen.

GARMENT OF HOLINESS
We would have nothing, no mercy, if it was not first for God who enabled us to partake of his free gift of eternal life through and by the cross while we were yet dead in our sins. (Eph.2:18; Jn.11:25–44.)

Now that we are called out of ‘Egypt, ‘ we are to be holy, separated to God from out of this world (Jn.17:14–16) according to God’s standards – which are not found in a man- made religion or man – made temple, but rather are found in a lifestyle centered on the word of God, dedicated to ‘ judgment running as waters, and righteousness as a mighty stream ( Amos 5 ).

John 7 : 38. He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.
Isaiah 12:3–4. Therefore with joy shall you draw water out of the wells of salvation. And in that day shall ye say, Praise the LORD, call upon his name, declare his doings among the people, make mention that his name is exalted.

Our garment of holiness is clearly also a lifestyle of commitment to the person of the Jesus Christ who indwells us by his Spirit. A life of constantly feeding on his word, keeping ourselves set aside for his use and constantly extolling his virtues.

Isaiah 58: 13. If you turn away your foot from the Sabbath, from doing your pleasure on my Holy day; and call the Sabbath a delight, the holy of the LORD, honourable: and shalt honour him, not doing thine own ways, nor finding thine own pleasure, nor speaking thine own words:

V.14 then shalt thou delight in the LORD; and I will cause thee to ride upon the high places of the earth, and feed thee with the heritage of Jacoh thy father: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it.
The person of Jesus is the Sabbath, the rest of God, and our commitment to him must be our whole life – and God will truly bless us ( v. 14 ) .
John 6 : 53 . . . . . Verily, verily, I say unto you, except ye eat the flesh ( his word ) of the Son of man, and drink his blood ( sacrificial living/ persecution ) , ye have no life in you.
HOW TO WEAR THE GARMENT. . .

Proverb 4:24–27. Put away from thee a forward mouth, and perverse lips put far from thee.

V.25. Let thine eyes look right on, and let thine eyelids look straight before thee.

V.26 Ponder the path of thy feet, and all thy ways be established.

V.27 Turn not to the right hand nor to the left: remove thy foot from evil.

Our total lifestyle, our walk, our thought, and our speech should be very different from the ways of the world, a full time commitment to walk in, speak, and live the word of God where ever he sends us for his purpose, for his glory, for his honour.

As in Isaiah 4: 1 many people today believe they will go to heaven because of their own religious works, and hold on to many doctrines that are simply not found in the English King James Bible, the only book of God. They expect to be know as ‘Christians ‘ or ‘ brother ‘ . Jesus made it plain in Luke 8 : 1, My mother and my brethren are these which hear the word of God, and do it.
Clearly not every one is going to heaven, not even most, but only a few.

Jesus alone is our life and there cannot be any thing in the world in the place of Jesus nor any symbol, image or likeness of God/ Jesus. Jesus put an end to man – made temple worship and raised his own body. The true temple of God, as the first born of many brethren ( 1Cor. 15 : 22, 23 ) . When people become born again they become part of the body of Christ –
Ephesians 5 : 30. For we are members of his body, of his flesh and of his bones… and the spirit of God indwells us ( John 14 : 21, 23 ) and becomes our inner witness ( Rom. 8 : 15 ) whereby we know the real presence of our heavenly Father and we become part of the tabernacle of David ( Amos 9 : 8 – 12; Acts 15 : 11 – 17 ) .

Our relationship with Jesus Christ our Savoir is personal, individual, ( he is the husband, we are the bride ), it is not a system. Every system is a cult = a systematic form of worship or devotion – Oxford Dictionary. These systems only serve to perpetuate temple worship – God destroyed Solomon’s temple for ever. One does not need a representative of Jesus when he personally indwells the true believer.JESUS = THE BREAD OF HEAVEN , IS ETERNAL LIFE ( Jn. 6 : 50, 58 ).

ONLY BELIEVE – AMEN.

There is only one elect – John 10:16 ;Isaiah 56:1-8;Esekiel 37:1-28,v22,read it prayerfully;Ephesians 2:12-22;1 Peter 1:1,2;1 Pet.2:1-10,25.

ARE WE SERVING GOD – OR OUR IMAGE OF GOD?

ARE WE SERVING GOD – OR OUR IMAGE OF GOD?

Remember, when people are truly born again they become ‘777’ not ‘007’ – we do not ‘have a license to kill’, i.e. ‘to continue pleasing our flesh’. Similarly we are no longer to partake in the ways of this world which will ultimately lead to spiritual deception of the worst kind where we have people like Joel Oosteen declaring Obama a ‘good Christian doing the work of God’.

Several others have also held to the same opinion. Most of these preachers belong to the false and wicked system also and for the sake of ‘filthy lucre’ give you lifestyle preaching mixed with error and are deceiving and fleecing a multitude of people.
Matthew 12:33. Either make the tree good, and his fruit good; or else make the tree corrupt, and his fruit corrupt: for the tree is known by his fruit.

We cannot have it both ways. We can only feed from the tree of life, not from the tree of knowledge of good and evil. See my illustration ‘ The Writing on the Wall’ at the beginning of these studies.
Satan conned Eve with that deception. First he put doubt or unbelief in her mind. ‘ Yea, hath God said..?’ then he deceived her.

Genesis 3:6. And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food (lust of the flesh), and that it was pleasant to the eyes (lust of the eyes), and a tree to be desired to make one wise (pride of life), she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat. V.7. And the eyes of both of them were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.

What happened? They discovered they could have their own source of knowledge and were no longer guided by the Spirit of God. They discovered they had lost their covering from God and sought to make their own. They were now living under the shadow of the tree of knowledge of good and evil, not the tree of life, which is Jesus. They believed they could have it both ways but it backfired on them. What they had lost and what they gained from their own knowledge led to literal and spiritual death and they became afraid of God (Vs9-11). We discover in verses 21 and 22 that God had already made provision for this and himself sacrificed at least two animals to make a covering for them. Revelation 13 and verse 8 tells us Jesus is ‘the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.’

We see in Luke 4:1-12 that Satan tried to tempt Jesus in much the same way. First the lust of the flesh ..v.3. If thou be the Son of God, command this stone that it be made bread.

Satan also seems to be tempting with the pride of life here; If you are who they say you are, then you have the power… He was seeking to get Jesus to prove himself. How many people today feel they need to prove that they are children of God?
V.4. And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.

Jesus is teaching all of us we do not live to satisfy ourselves. We live for God alone through every word he has given us by his Spirit and he will surely meet our needs (not wants), Philippians 4:19. But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus (the Word of God).V.20.Now unto God and our Father be glory for ever and ever, amen.
Luke 4:5-6. And the devil, taking him up into an high mountain, showed unto him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. And the devil said unto him, All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it.

Psalm 24:1-6.The earth is the LORD’S, and the fullness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein. For he hath founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the floods. Who shall ascend into the hill of the LORD? Or who shall stand in his holy place? He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully. He shall receive the blessing from the LORD, and righteousness from the God of his salvation. This is the generation of them that seek him, that seek thy face, O Jacob, Selah.

The kingdoms of the world have all been given to Satan but he is under the control of the living God. God has a purpose and he has declared his purpose right to the end from the beginning (Isaiah 46:10).
Let us read on in Luke 4. Satan is appealing to the lust of the eyes and the pride of life.

V. 7. If thou therefore wilt worship me, all shall be thine. V.8. And Jesus answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.
James 4:7-8. Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. Draw nigh to God and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye doubleminded.

Jesus in his 100% human form which ‘…was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin’ (Heb.4:15), humbled himself and stayed with that which was already written, i.e. the word of God.
Then Satan brought him to a pinnacle of the temple in Jerusalem and tried again to incite Jesus with temptation of the pride of life.. Again he brings doubt or unbelief…’ If you be…”

Luke 4:9-1 0. ‘…If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down from hence: For it is written, He shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee (Ps.91): And in their hands shall they bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone.

Read Psalm 91:11 and see how Satan has slightly changed the verse and it gives a different connotation to the verse. He is trying to pander to the ways of men (Matt.16:23) but Jesus makes it clear all scripture must be considered together to understand the things of God..V.12. ‘…It is said, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.

Because Jesus humbled himself under the word of God and resisted the devil, the devil left him for a season.
Hebrew 5:6-9. As he saith also in another place, Thou art a priest forever after the order of Melchisedec. Who in the days of his flesh, when he had offered up prayers and supplications with strong crying and tears unto him that was able to save him from death, and was heard in that he feared; And being made perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him;

Remember Exodus 20:12…Honour thy father and thy mother (Ephesians 6:1-2. Obey your parents in the Lord): that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.

The first commandment with promise – obey your Father which is in heaven. The land he gives is the Kingdom of God. The long life is Eternal Life.

Do not be deceived by preachers who need your money or their ministry cannot go on. God knows how to keep his people. Matthew 10 tells us we have been FREELY given the gospel and the command is to FREELY give it out.. Jesus drove the merchandisers out of the the temple of God. Today the true born again Christian is the temple of God and it seems they are all flocking to the house of the merchandisers and paying for it. That seems like a spirit of harlotry to me and that is exactly what Rev.17 talks about, the Mother of Harlots. A chief religion that controls all the other religions. If you are in full obedience to God, by his Spirit he will guide you, he will empower you, and he will enable you. That is God’s promise. God will set your hand to do, and God will support you. God determined long before you got saved that work that he would do through you after you got saved (Eph.2:10).

Psalm 37:4. (Read the whole psalm and live it) Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart. V.5. Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.
The key is we desire the things that give glory to God. Material possessions do not give glory to God. They are things of men. We desire to live in a manner pleasing to God. We desire to be used by God. We desire to obey God and be in his will. We desire to trust God. We desire to learn to pray according to his will, not just when we ‘break an arm’ and are looking for help.

1John5:14,15. And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask anything according to his will, he heareth us: And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him..
How do we develop this kind of faith?

Romans 10:17. So then faith cometh (continually) by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
As born again Christians we (our bodies) are the temple of God.. not a man-made building anywhere, ever. We are Levites, priests of God (Rev.1:5,6; 5:10) and we reign with him already on this earth. We are vessels of ministry sprinkled by the blood (Heb.9:21). Our service is to wait on our great high Priest, Jesus. Aaron was a type of Christ and the Levites waited on Aaron (read 1Chronicles23:24-32). Jesus became the veil and we enter in through him (Heb.10:19-21).
Isaiah 30:7. “…Their strength is to sit still.” V.18.”…Blessed are all they that wait for him.”
Psalm 25:1-22. (read it through) we live a life of waiting on the Lord and learning his paths of mercy and truth, the word, which is a lamp unto our path (Ps.119:105).

Psalm 27:14(read the whole beautiful psalm). Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: Wait, I say, on the LORD.

Isaiah 40:31 But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

I have found this to be very, very true. I have also found that when we wait on the Lord we do not have a program. It is simple really. Isaiah 55 tells us God’s ways are not our ways and God’s thoughts are higher than our thoughts. Most so called preachers have programs and spend three days at least preparing a sermon or rerun those from the same time last year, or have canned sermons from headquarters. They are always begging for money to keep going but it seems to go to the lusts of the flesh, the lusts of the eyes, and the pride of life. Private jets(Copeland), 80 bedroom houses (Parsely), 40,000$ gold toilets(JoyceMeyer, a fleet of Mercedes – I want it now-Benny hinn…and the ugly deceitful merchandising of the word of God list goes on and on. Such is their deception that they believe the Judaic doctrine that Jesus is coming to rule 1000 years in the middle east at Jerusalem from a man made temple. Most of these people are members of CUFI. Some are masons. Rick Warren is on the council of foreign relations and is tied up with Bill Clinton, Cofi Anan, and Oprah Whinney.
What saith the scriptures?

John 3:8. The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and wither it goeth:so is everyone that is born of the spirit.
Acts 3:6. Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk.

What ever I do, where ever I go, if that is how the Spirit of God is leading me, then ‘such as I have’ is the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth and the gates of hell cannot prevail against this church (myself-the temple of God)
1Peter5:2-3. Feed the flock of God which is among you, taking the oversight thereof, not by constraint (force or co-ercion), but willingly; not for filthy lucre (I’m not asking your money), but of a ready mind; Neither as being lords over God’s heritage, but being ensamples to the flock.

Hebrew 10:9-18. Then said he(Jesus), Lo, I come to do thy will, O God(Jn.5:19,30). He taketh away the first, that he may establish the second. By the which will (of God) we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all. And every priest standeth daily ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins: But this man after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever(for eternity- it is finished, John 19:30), sat down on the right hand of God; From henceforth expecting till his enemies be made his footstool. For by one offering he hath perfected forever them that are sanctified. Whereof the Holy Ghost also is a witness to us (Rom.8:14-17): for after that he had said before, This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them; and their sins and iniquities will I remember no more. Now, where remission of these is, there is no more offering for sin.

Don’t listen to all these people on TBN and elsewhere who sprout Judaic doctrines that after a 7 year tribulation Jesus will again sit in an earthly, man-made temple for 1000 years. That is absolute deception which God allows for those who have not the love of the truth –Jesus – the word of God (2Thess.2:1-12). Clearly when Jesus comes back, he is coming with a vengeance, with judgement, against an unbelieving world at the same time that he is going to be glorified in his saints.

2Thesselonians 1:4-12. (read from v.1)So that we ourselves glory in you in the churches (ecclesia-called out groups of individuals) of God for your patience and faith in all your persecutions and tribulations that ye endure: which is a manifest token of the righteous judgement of God, that ye may be counted worthy of the kingdom of God, for which ye also suffer: seeing it is a righteous thing with God to recompense tribulation to them that trouble you; And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels, In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power; When he shall come to be glorified in his saints (O come Lord Jesus), and to be admired in all them that believe (because our testimony among you was believed) in that day. Wherefore we also pray always for you, that our God would count you worthy of this calling, and fulfill all the pleasure of his goodness, and the work of faith with power: That the name of our Lord Jesus Christ may be glorified in you, and ye in him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.

Remember John 18:36,37.- – we are not here to support a claim for a piece of middle-east real estate- -Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews; but now is my kingdom not from hence (Christians do not carry guns, Isaiah 2:4; Eph.6:10-20). Pilate therefore said unto him, Art thou a king then? Jesus answered, Thou sayest that I am a king. To this end was I born, and for this caus e came I into the world, that I should bare witness unto the truth. Everyone that is of the truth heareth my voice.
He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith. In Jesus name, amen. Come out of Babylon – before it is too late ( Revelation 18:4).

A VICTORIOUS PRAYER LIFE

A VICTORIOUS PRAYER LIFE.
Something supernatural happens when I discipline my self to pray for one our every day.
Matthew 26 : 40. And he cometh unto the disciples, and findeth them asleep, and sayeth unto Peter, What, could ye not watch with me one hour? 41. Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation ( Luke 21: 34 – 36 ): the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.

‘Speak purposefully ‘
I set in order the Kingdom of God to rule in my life.
I ask for your Kingdom which is in me, to come and your will be done in my heart, my soul, and my body, in my life today.
a.) I pray your Kingdom come in my soul, let your love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control come inside of me today ( Galatians 5:22-23).
b.) I pray lord your will be done in my mind. I will think all things that are true, good, right, pure, honest, just, , virtuous and praiseworthy. ( Philippines 4: 8 ).
c.) I pray lord that your kingdom come in my body, as I present the whole of myself to you as a living sacrifice ( Romans 12: 1, 2 ), for my body is the temple of the Holy Ghost.
I make the quality to take control over my words ( James 3: 1- 18 ).
I renounce every bad seed planted by the words of my mouth.
I end the process of failure, sickness, lack and fear.
Lord, put a watch over my lips ( Psalm 141: 3 ) . I am determined to speak God’s covenant promises ( Psalm 34 )- words of love, joy, peace, faith and grace from this time on. I will fill my mouth with God’s word through out this day, and He will have total control of my life.
I thank you Father for the healing and restoring power that is constantly working in chosen and elect children. Help us Lord to grow stronger together in your grace as we grow more in faith that the whole body may be perfected in you.
Help us Lord to willingly co-operate with you as you make the necessary adjustments in our lives so that we can walk more perfectly as many members in one body in Christ Jesus.
Lord I pray for the children whom you have given me that they will choose to serve you all the days of their life. I pray for the development of their spirit and character and for your will to guide them in there life.
I take authority and say no demon spirit of wickedness, humanism, negativity or infirmnity will invade the hearts and minds of the children. I take authority over you devil and i pray God’s kingdom to come and God’s will to be done in their lives in Jesus Name. I pray in Jesus Name that all your children, Lord, will live in God’s blessings, in health and prosperity.
Pray for the Church ( The Called Out Ones)
I pray Heavenly Father for those who are gifted with apostleship. evangelist , prophets, pasturing and teaching that they will be filled with the full knowledge of your will, in all spiritual wisdom, understanding and discernment of spiritual things. Help them Lord Jesus, to walk in a manner worthy of you, desiring to please you in all things, bearing fruit in every good work, and steadily growing and increasing in the knowledge of YOURSELF. I ask that they will be invigorated and strengthened with all power according to the might of your Glory, to exercise every kind of endurance and patience with joy. I give you thanks dear Lord that you hedge them in this day I pray by your Spirit, from every attack of the enemy through discouragement and criticism. I claim that everything they set their hand to according to your will shall prosper ( Psalm 1: 3 ) and that they be kept in good health and prosperity of soul ( 3 John 2 ). I pray that the whole church will be rooted and established in love and may have power together to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is your love ( Eph. 3: 17 – 20 )
I ask lord Jesus, that we may express this love , that is beyond our understanding, and become a fellowship wholly filled and flooded with YOURSELF.
In Your Word Lord Jesus, you ask that we worship you in spirit and in truth ( John 4: 24 ). Help us to worship you by your Spirit, we pray, so that in truth, our praise will reflect our lifestyle in the word. Lord we desire to excel in praise, knowing that you inhabit the praise of your people.
Help us lord to be imitators of you and walk in your love, with all humility, gentleness and patience, making allowance of one another( Eph. 4: 1 – 7 ).
O lord may it be the desire of everyone in fellowship with you to be more like you , and put to death the works of the flesh. I bind the enemy that would seek to plant seeds of every, strife and division among God’s people and release love and unity. Your word ( Ps. 133: 1- 3 ) tells us that where there is unity you command the blessings.
Father you said in your word ( Mal. 3: 10 ) that we should prove you with our tithes and offerings, Help us lord to give generously and cheerfully as we purpose in our hearts of all our substance to the poor and needy the fatherless, the widow in her hour of need and to help the stranger and the levite, You are able to make all grace abound towards us; that we, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work (2 Cor 9: 8 )
I pray Lord that we are always filled with excitement, liberty, joy and life of the Holy Ghost. Help us to outreach conscious all the time that more people may hear the Word and become born again and added to God’s church.
I pray that we all will be faithful witnesses, faithful in prayers, faithful in fellowship, faithful to one another and faithful in our giving and service to the kingdom.
Matthew 11: 12 . . . the kingdom of Heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force.
I speak to the north, south, east and west. I say give up the people ordained to come into the Kingdom of God, those whom God wills to become part of our fellowship( Isaiah 43: 4 – 7; 49: 12 ).
I bind every principality and power, every ruler of darkness of this world, every spiritual wickedness in high places, IN JESUS NAME.
I break their power off peoples lives and declare that those who are called are Christ’s. He has brought them to the Father by his Shed Blood.
Father I ask for your angels and labourers to go in every direction and draw them in by your Spirit: that Jesus be lifted up and glorified-may the eyes those that are blinded be opened, and draw and planted in the house of the Lord, the heavenly Jerusalem, to become faithful, fruitful members of the body of Christ.
GIVE US THIS DAY OUR DAILY BREAD
Father I thank that you give me / us the word of God today – our Daily Bread. I thank you lord that you will help me to be in right fellowship with you today through your Word and I will be in right fellowship with others Christians. Help me to be a diligent worker for you Kingdom and obedient to your will.
Lord I have some request to bring you at this tine and I ask for your help and provision . . . . . . .I refuse to cast away my confidence, because I know you hear my prayer, so I will come daily before you with my needs, until I receive.

AND FORGIVE US OUR DEBTS, AS WE FORGIVE OUR DEBTORS
‘ Search me, O God, and know my heart:try me, and know my thoughts: and see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting ( Ps. 139: 23, 24 )
Lord, I confess my sin to you . . . . . . and I ask for and receive your forgiveness now. Lord you are faithful and just to forgive my Sin and cleanse me from all unrighteousness by your blood.
Father I pray your Holy Spirit brings to mind those I need to forg so that I can forgive them.
Lord I give forgiveness and mercy that I may receive forgiveness and mercy. Lord I choose to forgive everyone who wrongs me today. Jesus I will be a forgiver. I will be merciful. I break the power of every negative word spoken by me against me and I declare them harmless and ineffective in Jesus Name.
AND LEAD US NOT INTO TEMPTATION, BUT DELIVER US FROM EVIL
I put on the strong Belt of Truth to cancel out all lying, all deception, all doubletalk and all criticism from my life, and I’m going to speak the truth in love-Jesus you are the truth. You are the way, the truth, and the life ( John 14: 6 ). And I shall only think life and speak life about myself and God’s people.
I put on the Breastplate of Righteousness ( Isaiah 54: 17 )
No weapon formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servant of the Lord, and their righteousness is of me, saith the Lord.
By faith I am the righteousness of God because Jesus become sin for me. thank you Jesus for putting me in right relationship with the Father, so that I can seek first the kingdom of God and his Righteousness and things I have need of will be added to me .
I wear on my feet the Preparation of the Gospel of Peace
I prepare myself to walk on negativity today. I prepare myself to outreach today. Jesus I will do all things through your strength and carry peace wherever I go, and leave peace with all I meet today. I cast off all anxiety, worry, distress and fear , and I thank you that you are the Prince of Peace who rules and reigns my heart.
I take up the Shield of Faith and in Jesus name I quench all the darts of the enemy, that have been made fiery by my attitudes, in my life. Lord I have faith that I have a covenant with you where you have committed all you have me to stop the devil and to quench all the darts of the wicked one that have been made fiery. Jesus you are my faith and I now Live by your faith.
Lord I put on the Helmet of Salvation and confess that Jesus is my Lord. The blood of Christ has cleansed me, I am delivered out of the power of darkness. I am in the Kingdom of God by faith I take this stand and the devil has no right to my mind, I have the mind of Christ.
Father, I take up the sword of The Spirit, which is the word of God in my mouth, giving me authority and power to destroy every lying tactic of the enemy. I am the head and not the tail and I make a way for myself by the power of the spoken word. I choose to set my heart and my mouth in agreement with your word so that I will speak words of life and be winner over every negative storm that blows up against me.
Read Ephesians 6:10-18.

Now build a hedge – pray, and read Psalm 91.
Lord you are my refuge, my fortress, my God , In you I trust. I know your name and in your name you have given your angels charge over me and I thank you. You have built a hedge around me and all that I have.
Your angels have charge over me and no wickedness can get to me and my family. No evil men or women can touch us because we keep our-selves in the love of God. The wicked one touches us not. I release the hedge of protection around the vision you have given me for the souls I am believing for and the spiritual and physical needs I have asked for.
FOR THINE IS THE KINGDOM THE POWER AND THE GLORY
Lord yours is the kingdom, yours is the power and yours is the glory for ever and ever.. amen. Lord I am blessed because you have chosen me and given me a desire to pray. I want to know you more than anything else in the world- by your spirit make prayer a top priority in my life. Jesus I believe that something supernatural will happen when I pray one hour every day.
Thank you for your abundant provision, for a new spiritual liberty and victory, for love and forgiveness flowing from my life. Praise you Jesus for your hedge of protection around my life and around my loved ones and thank you father for a delightful encounter with you when I pray.
MY DAILY PLEDGE
I can do all things through Jesus who strengthens me. Father in the Name of Jesus I declare that I will seek first your Kingdom and your Righteousness in my Life daily. I will hear and do your Word in the strength of Jesus Christ. I will meditate on your Word day and night to establish your Kingdom in my Life. I give you my body as is a living sacrifice to be used of you to bring your perfect will into my life and to bring to my Name. I acknowledge this is impossible in my own strength but I can do all things through Jesus Christ who strengthens me.
A DECISION TO CONTROL MY WORDS
Father in the Name of Jesus, I make the quality decision to take control over my words.
I renounce every bad seed planted by the words of my mouth. I end the process of sickness, lack and fear and failure.
Lord put a watch over my lips. I am determined to speak God’s covenant promises – words of love, joy, peace faith and grace from this time on.
I will fill my mouth with God’s Word throughout this day, and He will have total control of my Life.
Breaking every curse:
I command you devil in the mane of Jesus to render any and all curse placed against me by believers, unbelievers or Satan worshippers to be null and void, harmless, ineffective and in – operative against me in the mighty name of Jesus.
I cancel all l your assignments Satan and loose your holding tactics and operations from me and I command you Satan to cease from all maneuvers in Jesus name.
I cast these curse out by the blood of Jesus and by the word of my testimony – I send them back seven ways to dry places by Divine direction – so they cannot have any agreement to get back together again, in Jesus Name.
Psalm 107: 1,2,..O give thanks to the Lord, For he is good: for his mercy endureth forever.
Let the redeemed of the Lord say so, whom he hath redeemed from the hand of the enemy;
3 . . And gathered them out of the lands, from the east, and from the west, from the north, and from the south.
I am redeemed and am no longer held by the bondage of any curse.
Galatians 3: 13, 14 . . Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, cursed is everyone that hangeth on a tree.
That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Christ Jesus; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.
Romans 8: 1 . . there is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the spirit.
For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.
Remember . . this is only a guide to a fulfilling prayer life.
Praise the Lord ..and worship Him always..there is
NO OTHER NAME BUT THE NAME OF JESUS.

We are sealed by the Holy Spirit of promise (Eph.1:13) in our foreheads (Ezek.9:4; Rev.14:1; Rev.22:4) with God’s name.
