Falling Away – Doctrine Of Demons – Jezebel Spirit

Be alert!  Don’t let pride, unforgiveness or any rebellion send you to Hell!  Don’t be fooled by false signs and wonders.  Do not be amazed by unsound teachings and stay far away from those things that are not from the word of God!

2_Thessalonains2_122_Thessalonians2man_of_Lawlessness

2 Thesssalonians 2:1-12 “The Man Of Lawlessness”

 Now concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our being gathered together to him, we ask you, brothers, 2 not to be quickly shaken in mind or alarmed, either by a spirit or a spoken word, or a letter seeming to be from us, to the effect that the day of the Lord has come. 3 Let no one deceive you in any way. For that day will not come, unless the rebellion comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction, 4 who opposes and exalts himself against every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, proclaiming himself to be God. 5 Do you not remember that when I was still with you I told you these things? 6 And you know what is restraining him now so that he may be revealed in his time. 7 For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work. Only he who now restrains it will do so until he is out of the way. 8 And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will kill with the breath of his mouth and bring to nothing by the appearance of his coming. 9 The coming of the lawless one is by the activity of Satan with all power and false signs and wonders, 10 and with all wicked deception for those who are perishing, because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. 11 Therefore God sends them a strong delusion, so that they may believe what is false, 12 in order that all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

stand_firm

2 Thessalonians 2:13-17 “Stand Firm”

But we must always thank God for you, brothers loved by the Lord, because from the beginning God has chosen you for salvation through sanctification by the Spirit and through belief in the truth. 14 He called you to this through our gospel, so that you might obtain the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ. 15 Therefore, brothers, stand firm and hold to the traditions you were taught, either by our message or by our letter. 16 May our Lord Jesus Christ Himself and God our Father, who has loved us and given us eternal encouragement and good hope by grace, 17 encourage your hearts and strengthen you in every good work and word.

doctrine_of_demons

1 Timothy 4:1-5 “Demonic Influence & Teachings of Demons” 

Now the Spirit explicitly says that in later times some will depart from the faith, paying attention to deceitful spirits and the teachings of demons, 2 through the hypocrisy of liars whose consciences are seared. 3 They forbid marriage and demand abstinence from foods that God created to be received with gratitude by those who believe and know the truth. 4 For everything created by God is good, and nothing should be rejected if it is received with thanksgiving, 5 since it is sanctified by the word of God and by prayer.

Falling_Away_In_Progress

Hebrews 6:4-6 “Warning Against Regression”

4 For it is impossible, in the case of those who have once been enlightened, who have tasted the heavenly gift, and have shared in the Holy Spirit, 5 and have tasted the goodness of the word of God and the powers of the age to come, 6 and then have fallen away, to restore them again to repentance, since they are crucifying once again the Son of God to their own harm and holding him up to contempt. 7 For land that has drunk the rain that often falls on it, and produces a crop useful to those for whose sake it is cultivated, receives a blessing from God. 8 But if it bears thorns and thistles, it is worthless and near to being cursed, and its end is to be burned.

Jezebel_Sirit

Revelation 2:18-29 “Letter To Thyatira – Jezebel”

18 “Write to the angel of the church in Thyatira: “The Son of God, the One whose eyes are like a fiery flame and whose feet are like fine bronze, says: 19 I know your works—your love, faithfulness, service, and endurance. Your last works are greater than the first. 20 But I have this against you: You tolerate the woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess and teaches and deceives My slaves to commit sexual immorality and to eat meat sacrificed to idols. 21 I gave her time to repent, but she does not want to repent of her sexual immorality. 22 Look! I will throw her into a sickbed and those who commit adultery with her into great tribulation, unless they repent of her practices. 23 I will kill her children with the plague. Then all the churches will know that I am the One who examines minds and hearts, and I will give to each of you according to your works. 24 I say to the rest of you in Thyatira, who do not hold this teaching, who haven’t known the deep things of Satan—as they say—I do not put any other burden on you. 25 But hold on to what you have until I come. 26 The one who is victorious and keeps My works to the end: I will give him authority over the nations— 27 and he will shepherd them with an iron scepter; he will shatter them like pottery—just as I have received this from My Father. 28 I will also give him the morning star.  29 “Anyone who has an ear should listen to what the Spirit says to the churches.

Isaiah 14:12-14 “Lucifer Cast Out Of Heaven”

12 “How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! How art thou cut down to the ground, who didst weaken the nations!
13 For thou hast said in thine heart, ‘I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God; I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north.
14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the Most High.’

  1. Hello James from Captain Bill, Just a couple of thoughts having to do with your pertinent and timely information for today….Conditioning or hardening off , toughening, or in general the ability to emotionally “handle” the psychological trauma soon to be inflicted on all of us by lying signs and wonders, (miracle working by satan and his own) is essential for our own sanity and emotional well being. In other words…Get used to it now by acclimating to the environment of chaos, deception, magic, wonders, and mind torture BEFORE we are in the middle of it all. Knowledge IS power. It is my desire for the People of God to be empowered with knowledge and experience, so as to be able to function in an berserk and surreal spiritual climate. We can remain “cool” calm and collected only if we are fully awake and fully aware of all evil ploys inundating us. We need not be overwhelmed and crazed by what is coming. We need to “get real” so we can deal with the “unreal” or extreme… I suggest viewing a short video to help toughen the human psyche…Check this out. Criss Angel believe: Criss rips bodies apart (on spike) for instance, is a great way to experience just a smidgen of what’s coming our way. Criss Angel and David Blaine, as well as a host of others are Satanists. Criss even has a #13 tattooed on his arm signifying that he belongs to, or is part of the rebellion against God’s authority. If this video effects you in any way, condition yourself otherwise …..The twin towers fiasco is of the same caliber as the Criss video…More of the same coming our way…Thanks for reading…Captain Bill

    1. Hi Bill and welcome — please stop by any time.

      I agree that those who put our trust in the Lord, are fully awake and daily follow his will — should have nothing to worry about. We are going to see some horrific things, that some of us may have seen in Science Fiction or other places. We all need to listen to the Holy Spirit for direction. What works for some, may not work for others. I personally would not watch any videos from known Satanists. I have a large prior knowledge-base from Science Fiction and have seen or read a lot of what now is slowly becoming a reality in many areas. What we should be seeking is Wisdom, Clarity and Discernment in all things. We could put ourselves at greater risk, if we don’t listen to the Holy Spirit for ourselves and our own situations.

    2. Bill, I agree we need to mentally, emotionally and spiritually toughen ourselves to process what we will soon see and experience. If we’re all walking around in a daze with PTSD, how much good can we do? Personally I like Mad Max: Fury Road. 🙂

      But really it comes down to faith. Do we trust God is good, all-powerful and is our strong tower?

I pray that I will remain true through the test. The Father is everything He claims to be…He promises to keep me and help me. When things get tough, He who lives in me is tougher. I can bank on that truth. On another note….I checked out the Mad Max trailer. HEEEOWWWW. Those guys are taking a walk on the wild side. And I thought I had it bad being shipwrecked in the Ozarks L.O.L.

    “Life is crowding in. There are few who seek Me. Lives consumed with the cares of the world. Solutions based on worldly wisdom are shallow attempts to find peace and harmony in a world plagued with sin. My people cannot see My goodness, they choose instead the ways of the world. My harvest awaits the reapers, My fields are ripe, fruitful, yet there are few who will speak with authority words of life.

    You do not grow, but remain children. My sickle will soon sweep across one nation then another. My followers are not ready. You are not pliable in The hand of the Master. Will you study to show yourself approved of God or drift in a sea of compromise and doubt continuing to play church; of no use for kingdom work.

    Meet life head on. Lift the cross high. Rejoice, proclaim My goodness. The sickness of this world will only be healed by the touch of the Master’ hand. The greatness of the task demands obedience and commitment, will you be counted among the faithful or the fallen?”

  3. Daily Devotional — 07/18/16

    THE PEACEMAKERS
    Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God. Matthew 5:9

    With the possession of a meek spirit, we are equipped to step into the midst of conflict and be ambassadors “waging peace” that passes all understanding. The richness of the New Testament word “peace” describes a condition of perfect and complete positive well-being. It also describes right relationships—intimate fellowship and goodwill between human beings. Peace comes not from avoiding issues but from facing them, making peace even when the way is through trouble.

    Blessed are those peacemakers who produce right relationships in every sphere of life, for they are doing a God-like work.

    Such actions may involve laying down one’s life, like Jesus did, in order to reconcile men with God and break down barriers among men (Galatians 3:26-29). Are we willing to pay the price so that others might find peace with God? Are we willing to insist that all should hear the Gospel and believe? In some conflict areas of the world, Christians call this “waging peace.”

    Our brothers and sisters in Israel and the West Bank—where “peace” is sought but very evasive—remind us that Jesus’ high moral teaching is that we should not resist evil with evil (Matthew 5:39). Jesus is calling His followers not to respond in kind to the acts of injustice and dehumanization directed against them, but rather to respond with transforming initiatives. This unique perspective that He teaches contrasts with the “fight or flight” responses so deeply conditioned in human beings.

    Dr. Salim Munayer is a wonderful example of such a peacemaker. The organization he founded takes groups of Christian Palestinians and Israelis on trips to the desert where they must work together in a situation that breaks down barriers and promotes trust relationships. Brother Andrew comments that this ministry doesn’t “just talk about the problem between Palestinians and Jews. It brings the two sides together and provides the means for them to reconcile.”

    “Waging peace” involves: promoting love not hate; fostering unity among brethren; being a witness of a higher kingdom; and following the non-violence example of Jesus.

    RESPONSE: Today I will be proactive and “wage peace” in my sphere of influence.

    PRAYER: Lord, make me an instrument of Your peace. May I counter hatred with love and injury with forgiveness today.

  4. Please consider a review of this prior post
    https://jcsouthwest.wordpress.com/2016/02/20/unto-the-least-of-these/

    Question to ask ourselves: What are you going to do if someone calls you or shows up at your door needing help and that person has hurt you in your past? That hurt could be real or just perceived. We best forgive everyone and remove that selfishness out of our hearts! We may be asked to help those that don’t know the Lord, have walked away from the Lord or have gone into a secluded state of mind by placing themselves in an exclusive club where everyone is elevated above the rest and all members are given titles and membership rules.

    We must forgive everyone and keep them in prayer. The Jezebel Spirit is in “high gear” right now and so many are falling for this big time!

    …….Here is what I have for all ……. ……
    July 17,2016
    A Day of Reckoning Is Coming

    As the prophets(prophetesses) and watchmen go strangely quiet
    and the warnings begin to cease,know it is time…….A day of Reckoning is
    near at hand and no man can stop it…….

    About Elections:Know that I am a just God,nothing gets by me,I know all things and created
    all things.THE GOVERNMENT IS UPON MY SHOULDERS,BOTH IN THE WORLD AND IN THE CHURCH…..
    I hold the world in the palm of my hand,since the beginning I have put nations up and brought nations down….My word says what it means and means what it says…..
    So much division,and so little time to get ready…..Do you not know that I am near…Behold I am at the door….I knock,doors of opportunity,but many do not hear….
    The war drums beat,the shofars sound my WARNING…..Do you not heed the call,Do you not take me SERIOUSLY,,,???????
    For unto us a child is born,unto us a son is given,and the GOVERNMENT shall be upon his shoulder,and is name shall be Wonderful ,Counselor,The mighty God,The Everlasting Father,the Prince of Peace.
    Of the Increase of HIS GOVERNMENT and peace there shall be no end,upon the throne of David,and upon his kingdom,to order it,and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth,even forever.The zeal of the Lord will perform this…Isa 9:6-7
    Urgent notice…..I can not stress the crucial hour we are now in….I was actually shown hordes and hordes of demons that have shattered the portals and are now here on earth…
    We must continue and be praying………….bring as many people into the fold……..Salvation is very important to the Lord and He stressed this to me…..Whether a person hears or not,keep it moving……..Again ,the urgency,the urgency.souls are at stake…..
    We were in service Friday night and Saturday and we heard a third shofar being blown spiritually…It was the call of war…..and it went on and on and on…….SERIOUS TIMES AHEAD,
    much more than before…..

    About the church::::::The government will be established in my church unlike today and will be in divine working and equipping the saints. as I have commanded………FULLY FUNCTIONING including holiness ,righteousness and all I have said in My word………
    those who are led in other ways apart from Me,will suffer the fiery consequences of their actions……..Much time has been given to start walking in my holy statutes…..

    About the nations::::::Eastern nations ,,Middle East ,European governments ,financial will continue to collapse,will continue to fail and experience extreme hard times.If you will stop hardening your hearts and receive from Me and those I send,I will lessen the judgments……,but very hard and difficult times are ahead of you……..You are a stubborn people and tempt me…..but my judgments are Redemptive and those that turn to Me will I invite into My kingdom and they will be saved…….
    Trust in the Lord with all thine heart and lean not unto thine own understanding,In all thy ways acknowledge him and He shall direct thy paths….
    Be not wise in thine own eyes,FEAR the Lord,and depart from evil……Prov 3:5-7

    About America :::Like all of the above nations ad rulers,you are a stubborn,hard- hearted people,you also tempt Me,time and time again………Your folly will be of your own making………You think you are so specially and think more of your selves than others…….
    You cry out to Me when you want something,Oh ye of little faith,your blinders will cause you to fumble and fall…..Do you not see what is happening around you?????
    Where is your Integrity?Where is your Legacy??????Time is running out for you as a nation……My judgments stand…..Who can know your heart truly ,but Me?
    Your decision must be made now….When it is too late ,I will not hear your cry…….
    The decision of Redemption and Reconciliation is available NOW,not later…..hear the words of the Lord and do not harden your hearts……….
    I was taken to hell a third time to be shown some of the plots of the enemy…..Satan’s army is getting ready to march. Many attacks are being planned across the globe in every nation,in every city……these attack will touch lives,families,loved one,brothers and sisters,leaders,marriages and family……there will be an unknown development in the infrastructure causing the earth to change its axis…….
    side note,not all of these will be false flags…..there will actually be lives taken,some before there time ,others not.,of course we know this is already happening…….
    You will not recognize the church in the future…….Many will close down for lack of funds,poverty will be at an all time high…….bankruptcy will go off the charts……loans and easy financing will not be available….I saw the stock markets,Dow Jones erratically go up and down and then it ceased .it flattened out…nothing!!!!!!!!!!and when that happened the leaders thew up their hands and walked out,just left it all………
    I saw saints of God fall over,or swaying ,prayers of witch craft was being prayed over them and made them weak……they were tired and caught unaware,some were so isolated that it made them an easy target or the enemy…….(NOTE PLEASE)This is why it is so vital to start coming into unity,not lone rangers(Hello<is anyone hearing,this is very important)
    With the coming of the N.W.O. and it will not be long will come Martial Law…,right now plans are in place to whack off sections of land not just for Fema ,but to gather people in closer together,you will not have any exit because it will be areas where you can cross to go anywhere……Monitoring for food ,groceries ,medical and banking ,even to taking a walk,all will be monitored………..
    This is all I am going to give right now……
    What Can you DO??????? Put on the FULL armor and live it out in your life…Saying it and hearing it is not putting it into action……We put action to our faith.We speak life ,not death…..We take authority over our circumstances,we take authority over our body,we can transform our areas,regions by our words and how we live……..and we can PRAY and PRAY and reach out to others……..We must be ready to have an answer about our faith when someone asks us……. and know that even until the end of the age Jesus is with us……..Shalom……….
    The Judgment of God is upon our land………How we handle this is going to determine in part where our eternal destination will be……Don't take this likely,I beseech you…….It is a crucial time and every soul must come to grips with this and our decision will effect the outcome………
    Other Scriptures:::Ephesians 6:10-18 ,,,Jer 17:9,,,, Num 16:3,,,,,,,Matt 28:20,,,Rom 2:2….James 4:12 Isa 55:1-3 and John 1:29

        I don’t watch TV during the day…I listen to worship music. As the last two events, of police officers being shot and killed and also wounded. I’ve been led to turn the TV on as these events were Breaking in the News. I‘m sure the purpose was to pray for all involved. Today I was led to turn the TV on to find that a press conference was and is being led by the officials of Baton Rouge, LA as I write this.

        As I listen to each one talk I can feel the pain in their words and action. I’ve been reminded that not all law and government officials are part of the evil of our leadership. These men have all mentioned prayer and the love of God in one way or another as they did their speaking. The Governor said, “If you see me out and about and want to pray, stop, I got you”. Other’s nodded in agreement. Some voices broke as they spoke.

        I’m led to pray for theses man, the Governor, the Mayor, The Sheriff, the Chief of Police and the FBI agent in charge.

        Dear Heavenly Father, We come to You in adoration and thanksgiving of Your love and faithfulness to us as we ask You in “Jesus Name” to heal these man and all others who have been hurt by all this tragedy here and around the world. We ask for wisdom and conviction of truth for all they do. We ask for Your protection for all the saints as they go about the business of doing their jobs. Father we ask that You cover those who have lost their loved ones with your loving arms, drawing them ever nearer to thee as they move through the days ahead. We ask that they turn to You and only You for their source of comfort and strength. We ask Lord that You convict any and all involved who may know the source of these attacks to come forward and release information. Finally Father we ask for blessings to be showered over all. Thank you Father and Praise You for all Your loving ways. We love You Lord and we honor Your will. We ask these favors and blessings in Your Son, Jesus Name, Amen –

      Perhaps J.C. means that in the coming times, when people don’t know which end is up or where to turn, that some people will be much more receptive to our Gospel Message. At that point, we must be ready to reach out (??)

  7. I understand your point of view Stig-Ove. Many none-Christians do in fact view Christians as elitists, and they have good reasoning behind that thought. Most of that is due to false “Churchian” doctrines, and also the fact that too many Christians try telling others that they must belong to a Church and some go as far as Judging people instead of showing the characteristics of Christ.

    We all tend to feel as “loners”, when most people around us are still snoozing.

    What really makes me sick is when we have “awake” brothers and sisters in Christ that have fallen for the Jezebel Spirit and are now entrenched in an elitist club. So much evil is out there now and is in full force against true believers. Many prophets have fallen away — some have even turned their gift into a marketing tool to be used online in the way of selling something or requesting “love gifts” — EWWW!

  8. Greetings folks,
    I have been in more INTENSE intercession (taking a fast from my blog) . . . And what the Holy Spirit has shown me, regarding the “mixture” within the prophetic . . . And delusion over-all within a HUGE number of professing Christians, is this:

    The Vision given to Rick Joyner, that he wrote up in “The Final Quest” is what we are seeing now. So many are in delusion and think they are serving the LORD, but are in deception.

    I found an audio version of Rick Joyner’s book on YouTube and listened to about 45 min of it last night and plan on listening to more of it today . . . But . . . Intercession is a KEY to helping our siblings-in-Christ be set free from these demonic forces. It does NOT mean they don’t love the LORD. . No, not at all, it just means they have been captured and don’t realize it.

    We EACH must diligently ask the Holy Spirit to search our ENTIRE life, to see if WE have any “mixture” within us. If we do, we have an open door to demonic influences that cloud our ability to know the TRUTH that will set us free.

    OH MAN . . . The prayer focus has been intense, for I’m not willing to see more siblings taken out. . . . So PLEASE, first ask for the Holy Spirit to do a review of your life, do as HE directs you to do and join me in spiritual warfare for our siblings-in-Christ. It’s very likely at least one person who reads this comment may be in this delusion and does not know it. I pray that EACH and EVERY person submit to the Sovereignty of the LORD . . . To repent . . To forgive and to be set free, with healing, restoration and anointing.

    Here’s the YouTube version of the book:

    It’s going to be a FIERCE battle, folks. . . Souls are at stake and I’m talking about professing Christians. I’m UNWILLING to see my siblings continue to be taken captive by a spirit of delusion/deception and not even know it.

    Blessings to you all,
    Sis Linda

    2. Hi Sis Linda,

      I was listening to Timothy Alberino and Steve Quayle on Hagmann recently. Alberino talked about an experience of deception and delusion during his earlier days in Peru. He said that deception is not just being tricked into believing a lie. It is a satanic spiritual POWER over a person.

      This got me thinking about things the Apostle Paul said about the power of the Spirit.

      “My message and my preaching were not in persuasive words of wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, so that your faith would not rest on the wisdom of men, but on the power of God.” – 1 Corinthians 2:4-5

      “For the kingdom of God does not consist in words but in power.” – 1 Corinthians 4:20

      It seems the way to overcome a power is to smash it with a GREATER POWER. I think the deception and delusion we see manifesting are not primarily intellectual problems or lack of information. They are battles of power and we win by operating in the GREATER POWER of God’s Spirit.

      I am talking to myself here as much as anyone else. God bless everyone as we navigate these dark days in the assured hope of winning souls for the Kingdom of Heaven!

        Adam and Eve were sinless when they were in the Garden of Eden, AND they walked with God. THEY GOT DECEIVED!!! We are living at the end of the age, in a fallen sinful world, where Satan rules as e prince of the air. Anybody who thinks they can’t be deceived, unless submitted fully to the LORD, in ALL areas, is already in deception.

        LORD HELP US ALL . . Show us Any area in our lives that may be an open door to the demonic, so we can REPENT, receive forgiveness and be set free.

      2. Mike,
        I believe you are 100% correct. Bette Stevens mentioned a few months ago that there was a “demonic spirit” (power) of false peace over this nation. In the same way, “deception” can very well be a “demonic spirit.”
        (After all, isn’t satan the great “deceiver”?)

        Yes, the POWER of the Holy Spirit active within us will be the only POWER to conquer the “false demonic power.” (“For we do not battle against flesh and blood.”)

        You have clearly stated some crucial points!

If you are into gaming real heavy you can use easily 8-12 hours a day just for that. It is a real brainwasher, i talk from experience.

  9. Yes i noticed and what i also noticed was the reference to a dungeon master. I dont know how familiar you are with role playing games here but does it surprise you i played them also back in my young days.

    Essentially a DM tells the players what is happening and based on their skillsets they react to the situation and perform the scenario told by the DM.

    This here is becoming a live RPG soon and people who are totally dissassociated with reality will be guided directly through tech like this. Next step might be tech like chips who are implanted that stimulate pleasure centers in the body and voila you have a real zombie population directed by stimulants for obedience.

    Not that farfetched in my eyes, i have studied and read real science and Scifi for years!

Right from the start when video games were introduced they messed with something in me that would cause anxiety and soon angry.

    My children are wondering how they will navigate these large changes in their lives.

    My children, whenever you are unable, I will send you help. I am always near you to help you, and My other children who obey My voice will also help you when the journey is too difficult for you. Fear not.

    Your world is changing quickly as I have accelerated time. The end quickly approaches and most of the world is unaware of what is coming. Work now while it is day and leave the details of your daily lives to Me, for I am well able to provide for you and help you with the changes at hand.

    John 15:5 I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.

    2 Corinthians 12:9-10

    9 And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

    10 Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ’s sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.

    Isaiah 41:10 Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.

    John 9:4 I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.

  12. Thank you James…I’ve reviewed all links provided today, I was particularly sensitized by and feel it was for me as well after reading the link above: “breaking the jezebel spirit”. I’ll share it with my family.

    Also, this teaching will be very helpful for anyone who finds themselves in need.

    This is a story about a Jezebel spirit…
    If you remember…back a while ago, several+ weeks I asked for prayer for my daughter and her family. I shared that they were being attacked and that it was bad. I didn’t share details because I was led to only ask for prayer. I still am not able to share some of the details; however, I can share the following.

    In this experience the Holy Spirit led some of my family through a series of lessons (teaching, always teaching) to cleanse ourselves of the fear, worry and doubt that covered us like a very dark cloud. These emotions are all sinful.
    Through much prayer from many and mostly the Holy Spirit we were literally led to those who could help. By the power of Jesus and the Blood He shed for us and due to obeying Him we were released from this spirit and are healing in God’s arms. WE ARE WARRIORS AND NEVER FORSAKEN!!!

    This was a very strong Jezebel spirit one that ended up reaching out to others besides my daughter and family, including myself. Many were taught hard lessons, including myself. I Praise God and give Him all the Glory that the lessons were learned NOW, and that in the end God’s will was and continues to be done.
    These jezebel spirits were coming from the leadership (all the way at the top) in the church and were exceptionally troubling. There were lies being spread that could destroy people, my family if believed. Because the attacks were coming from within the church directed by the leader and because of the magnitude of the attacks it threw us into fear first, then worries and doubt. It hit me like a rock. My reaction overwhelmed me.
    The church is the last place one would expect to be viciously attacked. BUT… this is exactly what Jesus teaches us, that NO ONE or nothing is true to its word but HIM. We are to be vigilant, watchful, hawk-eyed of evil and ALWAYS AND FOREVER place our thrust in Him and ONLY Him. We are to go to Him in prayer ALWAYS and FIRST for direction, discernment and confirmation. We must TRUST and HONOR Him with our requests and troubles. Trusting and having faith in Him gives us the ability to hear Him…to know He is God, the GREAT I AM…NOT MAN! When we do this He provides us the answers and shows us the way to conquer, through Him, any and all problems.
    I’d like to add…this IS what Linda and Bette and also many others have been warning us about for as long as I’ve been part of this blog. It’s my humble opinion that first you have to experience a vicious, ruthless attack to know where you stand with the Lord. This is the subtleness, (i.e.…so slight as to be difficult to detect or describe; elusive) of the enemy that we are warned of. If our lives are so very perfect how can we know where we stand when it gets REALLY BAD???!!! And it’s going to get REALLY BAD!
    Continuing…
    This was truly a spiritual lesson that taught the young and the old within our family unit. It has changed relationships for the purpose of unity that will ultimately be used to increase God’s Kingdom. Those involved know, NOW, that we all know God is in control and we have learned to take everything we read or are taught (by man) to the Lord in prayer.
    This was a lesson I was trying to teach my daughter and family for a very long time, years. But a leader of a church can’t be wrong…is the mine set. This is the lie!
    The Lord had shown me long ago that something was very wrong in this church. There was something dark within this church. I felt it every time we attended a special event that included our grandchildren. I was in prayer along with others asking for direction for a long time, praying that my loved ones would see, feel and hear the truth. At first (years ago) I was confused myself, thinking, but this is a leader in a church…however, soon I had my own experience, confirmation that what I was feeling was correct. I was also hearing and seeing behaviors out of my daughter and family that did not line up with the word of God. I was heartbroken as any parent would be.

    After my own personal spiritual experiences two+ years ago I came to understand how the enemy was everywhere, EVEN in the church. Sadly, I was living under a rock for most of my life….trust whatever I was told. As I grew in my walk with Christ and learned to hear His direction, I was able to approach the subject with my daughter of what I was shown in this church, but only when Holy Spirit directed me to do so. He directed me to be silent unless I had direction from Him…as the flesh would drive a wedge and push this family deeper into the clutches of the enemy.

    So how can one be so in tune with the Holy Spirit and then fall flat on their face in times of trouble? I knew God had this; I knew He was in charge, He had been directing me all along for such a time as this. Where did I falter?

    The first mistake I made… was NOT trusting the Lord immediately upon hearing of the circumstances and magnitude of the attacks on my loved ones and not turning to Him for help. Another thing I had done was to grow to think badly of some of the people that were around my daughter and her family…another sinful action. I blamed them for dragging my family down. I also didn’t recognize Gods hand in all that was being presented.

    I need to stop here and add…”Trust and Obey” is playing right now as I write this. Very timely indeed. “Trust and obey for there’s no other way to be happy in Jesus but to trust and obey”!

    Continuing…
    This story is an example of what is going to happen to all who are not prepared…I was not prepared!!! I see now, that this was the lesson, to show me I was not prepared and to also show me where I was sinning. It’s an eye opener to find out that you’re not as strong and grounded as you think. When we’re not, we open ourselves to the fear, worry and doubt (all sins) which certainly are not of God. These emotions are all intended reaction…and the enemy scores.

    Praise the Lord for showing us this and so it didn’t take long to recognize the sin and to go into prayer humbly asking Him for forgiveness. It was at this time that I ask the Lord to show me any and all sin that I was not aware of…He did so and I was able to repent, ask for His forgiveness and mercy and start to receive His blessings. Upon doing this the Holy Spirit began giving clear directions (simultaneously) to several of us who were involved. It was then that we were on our way to being healed, although, we didn’t see that right away. Holy Spirit gave me clear and precise direction and showed me where to go for help. …That’s another story…a very humbling experience, one that will ultimately teach us more, more, more and will include more healing and direction for all. He placed us in good hands. Another family who was led to stand up for our family and the truth has also been directed to a place that will help them as well.

    We give God all the Glory…as we thank Him and Honor Him and Praise Him for His love and faithfulness.

    This Jezebel spirit still resides in this church but many have been awakened to it because it was confronted. That was the whole reason the attacks began…lies and deception were being confronted. Through the years and after many prayers, the Lord began to show the “truth” to my loved ones. When He did that, they worked to bring truth to the church; it was then that they began to be attacked.

    We pray for all who are and will be affected by this spirit that they will come into truth by way of relying on the Lord for direction. We also pray for the leadership in this church. We have forgiven all who were and are involved. We trust that God is in the middle of this and we know ‘His will” will be done.

    We have all found peace in our Lord Jesus Christ and His promise to always protect us.
    GOD IS IN CONTROL…AMEN AND AMEN

    Thank you James for allowing the space.

  13. Hi Peggy, Stig, James and Linda, I’ve got a few minutes this afternoon so why not spend it with my new found friends. (you guys)… While stringing up tomato plants today in the 100 degree weather, I gave some thought to this falling away condition occurring just before the anti-Christ is revealed… I love to study The Word.. Because of my being shipwrecked smack dab in the middle of the Ozark mountain range on 185 acres of seclusion, I’ve had time to search for answers to my many questions. Eleven years to be exact. I studied this falling away subject a couple of years ago and arrived at some concrete conclusions….The falling away means apostasy according to my word study in Strong’s and other sources. The saints falling into error thinking they are accurate in their belief system. The apostasy or falling away is the LOVE message….Now, before you beat me about the head and shoulders, to the degree that each blow is more devastating than its predecessor, allow me to explain how I arrived at this profound and accurate conclusion. There is absolutely NO SIN or BLOOD mentioned in today’s love message, whether it be delivered Saturday, Sunday, or on any other day of the week. No sin….No blood. Why is this? It’s because the sin word is not good for our self esteem, so we’ll just eliminate the topic of sin. Now let’s consider blood…..Messy, gory, just too much worthless information involved with blood. So let’s eliminate the sin word and the blood word and move on to a more positive and productive relationship with our deity. (says satan) and Ignatius Loyola. Please allow me to explain how we got where we are now with the Love message. It’s called Ignatian Theology. Ignatius Loyola,-born October 23, 1491-died July 31, 1556. Ignatius Loyola was a Cardinal in the catholic church; The Founder of The Spiritual exercises in the year 1540 and founder the Order Of The Jesuit Society on April 19, 1541. The sole purpose of the Jesuit Order was, and is to this day, by any means necessary, ELIMINATE all Protestantism. That’s any and all means necessary…..Murder, lying, cheating, stealing, infiltrating all world systems and agencies etc. (the end justifies the means) Ignatius Loyola designed and delivered “The Spiritual Exercises” for humankind to deepen their relationship with God by eliminating sin and blood . The Spiritual Exercises are to be implemented by the last pope, for the purpose of uniting all religions under one banner led by the pope , thus reforming the catholic church into a Super one world order religion, to be STRICTLY ENFORCED by the head of the catholic church and the anti-Christ…Obama the anti-Christ and the pope fulfilling Bible prophecy by holding the office of THE false prophet.

        I was happy to be play a piano selection for a 3 hour Good Friday Vigil in 2014. It was in a remote area, and there were several really good songs about the Blood of Jesus. The people present sang them out with all there might. It was very uplifting and the Holy Spirit was present.

        In fact, I just remembered, I played a piano solo “Beneath the Cross of Jesus.” When I finished, a minister got up to speak and remarked with great surprise that he saw the image of a Cross right there on the floor that had just appeared. Several in the front pew came running up to look, and verified it. All I know is that I was really concentrating on the WORDS to that piano piece as I was playing.

    Back in the old days preaching went to the point, not circling around the plate like a cat around hot porridge.

    I am familiar with the extreme oath of the jesuits! In latin it is Iustum Necare Reges Impios. Which forms INRI, this is but a small part of their extreme oath but means what Bill stated above.

    THE PERSECUTED
    Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you. Matthew 5:10-12

    With our hunger and thirst for righteousness comes the promise of persecution for those who take a stand for God. We have not been called to safety and comfort but to serve in the midst of conflict. Persecution is not to be strenuously avoided, for it is the result of righteous living. To avoid it, one would have to cease living righteously.

    The early church went through much persecution for their faith in Christ. It affected their livelihood. They had to ask themselves, Should a Christian craftsman create idols for the temples? Or should a tailor sew robes for heathen priests?

    Persecution affected social and family life. Most feasts were held in the temple of some god. A common invitation would be dining at the table of such a god. Even an ordinary meal in a home began with a cup of wine poured out in honor of the gods, like grace before a meal. Could a Christian share in such a meal like that?

    Severe persecution meant being flung to the lions, burned at the stake, or being wrapped in pitch and set alight to provide light for Nero’s palace gardens. Or it meant being sewn in animal skins and set upon by Nero’s hunting dogs. Christians were tortured on the rack; scraped with pincers; had molten lead poured on them; had red-hot brass plates fixed to the most tender parts of their bodies; had eyes torn out; had limbs cut off and roasted before their eyes; had hands and feet burned while cold water was poured over other parts to prolong agony.

    Most of us have never in our lives made a real sacrifice for Jesus. To have to suffer persecution is to walk along the same road as the prophets, the saints, and the martyrs. To suffer persecution is to make things easier for those who are to follow. To suffer persecution is to experience the fellowship of Christ, as Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego did in the furnace (Daniel 3:19-25). It is not always so dramatic, but it is nevertheless real. Most of us enjoy the blessing of liberty today because men and women in the past were willing to buy it for us at the cost of their own blood, sweat and tears.

    RESPONSE: I will accept persecution, whether mild or hot, which comes as a result of righteous living.

    PRAYER: Lord, encourage those today who are experiencing severe persecution for Your name.

Instantly or immediately following “The Event”, whatever that may be, (natural disaster, pandemic, WAR, or a compilation of these atrocities, Christian persecution will hyperdrive. Any attempt to promote the Gospel Of Jesus Christ will be crushed. Perpetrators of World Law will be severely and publically punished. The slightest mention of sin, atoning blood, and by stating that Jesus is the only way to the Father will be a worldwide Capital crime.

      1. Things are spiraling out Of control yes but the bible uses birthpangs as an analogy for endtime woes increasing. Now i being a father Of three have seen that pregnancies and birthpangs varies a great deal. Some are Very long and some like My second son was over like poof its there.

        I have also this thought in the back Of My head that the return Of Jesus is linked to sabbatical years somehow. Maybe im Wrong but IF you count from the creation Of the earth to today and exclude the sabbaths forsaken by Israel for a that direction measure im seeing we have a difficult labor ahead with time before the baby or the birthpangs come to final.

        Jesus Said pray its not on a sabbath day because then the woes would be like nothing ever seen. So IT is clearly linked to Sabbaths and in My estimate giving as some say one generation from 1967 Israels aqquiring Of the temple some 70-80 years from that the biblical definition Of a generation. We have a somekind Of guideline to follow.

      2. Hi Stig, Nobody but nobody has a handle on this subject. I have been heavily involved in this study for years and so have many other people more knowledgeable than myself. There are so many different interpretations of last days events, it becomes a whirlwind of confusion. I stay clear of most of it these days. We live in a spiritual matrix. We see through a glass darkly. Our world is a spiritually generated dream world. I have the gift of intuition. That does not mean that everything I think I know is correct. It just means that some things are imparted to me directly from our God from time to time. I know when this occurs. My spirit testifies with The Holy Spirit of certain truths or information given me from Him. God did not tell me that Obama is the anti-Christ. There is a LOT that I believe that The Father did not instill in me, or inform me of. That doesn’t mean that I am wrong in what I believe, or what I think I know. I don’t know whether date setting is right or wrong. Neither does anyone else. It is my observation that the most sincere and learned of individuals who set dates have all been wrong when their prophetically projected dates arrive and pass without bearing fruit. Some subjects I consider safe subject to discuss. Other subjects are too dangerous to discuss so I don’t go there. If I had my own blog, I would stay with safe topics. Positive topics. Topics that would build up the body of Christ. James and Linda have positive and productive blog sites.

  20. Stig-Ove, many of the news stories coming out appear to be targeting Christians. That’s even being done by Comedians and many others. You can see where the Elite, Obama Lizard Followers, Satanists and the truly mind-numbed misinformed groups are trying to establish all non-Muslim crimes as “Christian Radicals”. I still believe most of the news events we see are orchestrated ahead of time by the sulfur-dwelling, foul smelling, scumbags that are doing this all for the purpose of causing chaos and then introducing Martial Law. We can pray that all of their eyes are opened in time, so they repent for what they are doing.

    As days continue to grow darker and evil surrounds on every side I ask if my ministry assignment would continue as before or be changed in any way. Here is what came into my spirit. I covet your prayers for discernment, knowledge and godly wisdom as I attempt to faithfully serve our LORD. ALL who call Jesus LORD are ministers of the Gospel, called by God to speak the Truth in love.

    “Your assignment continues to be telling My people that their willful disobedience brings judgment. Judgment on both the just and the unjust alike. The just will see the day and rejoice, the unjust will cower in fear and trembling.

    Tell My people, ‘repent, for the kingdom of God is at hand. I AM is coming soon, winnowing fork in My hand to separate wheat from tares. Repent My people – while time yet remains. I AM is a God of love, REPENT.'”

    “Seek the LORD while He may be found; Call upon Him while He is near.” Isaiah 55:6
    “At one moment I might speak concerning a nation or concerning a kingdom to uproot, to pull down, or to destroy it; if that nation against which I have spoken turns from its evil, I will relent concerning the calamity I planned to bring on it.” Jeremiah 18:7-8
    “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.” Matthew 3:2
    “Therefore repent and return, so that your sins may be wiped away, in order that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord…” Acts 3:19
    “I have spread out My hands all day long to a rebellious people, Who walk in the way which is not good, following their own thoughts…” Isaiah 65:2

    BEING SALT OF THE EARTH
    “You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot.” Matthew 5:13

    Jesus is making a statement of fact here when he says, “You are the salt of the earth!” It is not a command or wish list. It is to be reality here and now. The implication is that we are to be what God has already made us to be.

    The context is Christians facing persecution. Their numbers are small and they are insignificant. Salt is cheap in some places and expensive in others. We have the saying that a man is worth his weight in salt! Its value may vary yet it has unusual properties that far exceed its value.

    This is what should happen when Christians take their stand for God in society. That stand for good renders society infertile for the growth of evil and ungodly influences. When England went through revival under the ministry of the Wesley’s and George Whitefield in the 18th century, a possible bloody revolution such as afflicted France was averted.

    Usually it happens on a more moderate scale. Conversations moderated, consciences pricked, respect for others heightened.

    The disciples’ of Christ do not remain silent about their faith. They do not hide themselves, but live and work in places where their influence may be felt. The light that is in them can then be most fully manifested to others so that they may see that the light of real Christian goodness. It is a light not of this world but coming from God, and may in consequence be led to give honor and praise to its Giver.

    I was blessed to visit a seminary in Indonesia that reflects this teaching of Jesus. They are surrounded by a Muslim community where many live in poverty. Rather than live in an isolated enclave, the school and students serve this community with the love of Jesus. They teach literacy lessons; they provide first-aid medical care; they distribute food and clothing to the hungry and naked.

    During an outbreak of violence by extremists against churches in the area, an angry Muslim mob approached the seminary one night chanting their slogans and waving their machetes. When they arrived at the buildings, they found a circle of Muslim people surrounding the campus holding hands in a large circle. They said to the extremists, “We will not allow you to destroy this school. These people help us and our children with all our needs. You may not harm them!” The mob disappeared.

    Being salt and light in community also has its rewards.

    RESPONSE: Today I resolve to live my life for Jesus in a way that will positively “salt” my community.

    PRAYER: Help me, Lord, to stand for the good and be a salty influence for You in the world around me.

  23. Two things about SALT:
    1.) It is a preservative. (perhaps preserving so that Heaven is gained and the fires of hell will not touch)
    2.) It can make one thirsty. If we are SALT, we should be naturally making others thirsty for the things of God.

  24. My thoughts on this subject of setting dates or wondering about the time of Jesus and His second coming: Scripture tells us Jesus, Himself doesn’t even know the day or the hour. So I feel that any time spent trying to figure it out is time taken away from serving the Lord.

    When I was a little girl and I asked my Dad, when is Jesus returning? He would always assure me…no one knows the time but God, it’s not for us to know. He would tell me to live my life one day at a time, serving the Lord, following His commandments, doing what is right, enjoy life but always keep yourself ready. He was stern in His direction when He would say, ” Do not worry”!

    I believe that we should anticipate but not wish for this to happen and we should also not wish for a delay, we should go about doing His will, following His ways.

    I know this, that as a people we tend to be problem solvers, looking for the answer to any issue or mystery. However, I truly believe in the case of Jesus returning we should just Worship and Praise Him, and await His Grand and Glorious entrance with humble anticipation.

    Blessings,
    Vicki

    1. I agree with you Vicki. So many False Prophets have come and gone over the years, that when true Prophets share things — people tend to ignore them. Look at all the panic people caused during the recent past — 1999 (2000) — remember that panic? What about 2012 — yet another panic. There’s been some newer recent “panic” events that have come and gone — but most claim that the “Lord Changed His Mind On” ! Wow & Wow Again! The Lord never changes. If he states he is going to do something, he will do it. He never says “Just Kidding or Never Mind”. I do believe judgments can be lessened by prayer, but False Prophets are every where these days. It’s so important we all have Discernment, Clarity and Wisdom. I think many that call themselves Prophets, don’t get confirmation on things before they share them. Some things may need to be held and released a later time? Some things may be just for a specific audience/person? Some things may be meant as a test of obedience?

      Some are guilty of saying “Thus Sayeth The Lord” or “The Holy Spirit Said…” or “The Father Said This” — when the Lord had nothing to do with it. Sometimes it’s better to simply be quiet until we know for sure that what we are hearing is from the Lord by way of confirmation.

  25. I forgot to say, the main thing is what Vicki mentioned — it’s more important that we stay ready all the time. We can do that by repenting, prayer, reading the word, praise/worship.
