There Is No One Like God

Isaiah 46

Bel crouches; Nebo cowers.
Their idols are consigned to beasts and cattle.
The images you carry are loaded,
as a burden for the weary animal.

2 The gods cower; they crouch together;
they are not able to rescue the burden,
but they themselves go into captivity.

3 “Listen to Me, house of Jacob,
all the remnant of the house of Israel,
who have been sustained from the womb,
carried along since birth.

isaiah46_4

4 I will be the same until your old age,
and I will bear you up when you turn gray.
I have made you, and I will carry you;
I will bear and save you.

Who will you measure Me with,
so that we should be like each other?

6 Those who pour out their bags of gold
and weigh out silver on scales—
they hire a goldsmith and he makes it into a god.
Then they kneel and bow down to it.

7 They lift it to their shoulder and bear it along;
they set it in its place, and there it stands;
it does not budge from its place.
They cry out to it but it doesn’t answer;
it saves no one from his trouble.

8 “Remember this and be brave;
take it to heart, you transgressors!

  1. J.C. and Bloggers,
    I’m reporting that several times each day for the past several days or so,
    I get slight “whiffs” of a supernatural smoky smell……just got one now as I opened this blog post, so I felt led to report.

    It doesn’t have to do with J.C.’s writings—- not at all—- it’s a warning of coming judgment, I believe.

    1. I never been overtly sensitive to small details of these kinds myself. I know some people are and they have My respect. I had a christian sailor once prophesy over me that he sensed i was to be a prophet almost 9 years back.

      Only thing i have is a sense of impending disaster to come combined with a will to see My family safe. IT was somebody on our old email Group also WHO had similar feelings i remember.

      But let IT be said now than never that every person i met on this blog is going to be a keyplayer When the endtime begins in earnest or now this blogpresence will prepare someone. More prophetic than that i cannot be atm.

      1. I’ve only experienced it with the chemtrails. Strong sulpher when I walked out the door. I forgot I was on the phone with another sister in the Lord (bluetooth) and just went to war over them. By the time I came back from the shop a few minutes later the smell was gone. Thank you Jesus!!!!

      1. Yes it was initially a seasonal observation. we discerned this in early 1990’s through the degree and nature of our call which was distinguished by beginning to hear the voice of the father, than Jesus and finally through the Holy Spirit. He re- published the piece to align with the New Year. Upon reading this piece we received several witnesses as well as got several other outside sources of witnessing. The over arching message is that the Church age is earnestly entering in to it’s Glorious Church stage. Historically it has been in a dead, sleeping and lastly a sleepwalking stage.These stages are clearly defined in the scriptures which are an integral part of a message that Jesus imparted to us early in the initial stages of our call. If you would like to see an outline of this message feel free to shoot me an e- mail as it is in a file which can be forwarded if you are so led? Also if so led and are drawn to the Solen Site almost all of his message fits succinctly inside of the outline of the Church Awakening message that was imparted to us in the early 90’s.. On a personal note in the midst of your discerning is doubt and dis belief which can be addressed if you are ever so led to lean in to the Spirit for clarification and release from Jesus. The Stronghold behind this one stems often time from the spirit of fear. So If you can receive I bless you in the area of your spirit which has been wounded by fear and I speak in to it with a passage of scripture. 2Tim.1″7 “For this reason I remind you to fan into flame the gift of God, which is in you through the laying on of my hands. 7For God has not given us a spirit of timidity, but of power, love, and self-control.
        Blessings to you sonshine 15

    BE A LIGHTHOUSE
    I have come into the world as a light, so that no one who believes in me should stay in darkness. John 12:46

    One of the strongest images of standing strong in a storm is the lighthouse. In the era before radar, satellite navigation and GPS systems, lighthouses were vital to protect ships from crashing onto rocks, shoals and shores. Building lighthouses can be considered one of man’s most noble endeavors. Since the beginning of seafaring, families and friends have lit bonfires at night to guide sailors home.

    George Bernard Shaw said, “I can think of no other edifice constructed by man as altruistic as a lighthouse. They were built only to serve.”

    And evangelist D.L. Moody commented, “Lighthouses don’t fire cannons to call attention to their shining—they just shine.”

    Jesus used this imagery of light to describe our role in His kingdom. We are the light of the world, He said, after claiming Himself to be the true light. Therefore we function much like a lighthouse, both internally and externally.

    The first design for a lighthouse is the internal function of generating light. Early lighthouses used a literal fire that had to be constantly fed and watched. Later electric lights were utilized and ultimately laser lights. But this light still has to be internally projected.

    So we too as followers of Jesus project internal light, the outer expression of the inner life under the control of the Holy Spirit.

    The other aspect of a modern lighthouse is that it also is an external reflector. Over the years of improvements, revolving lenses have been developed to reflect that internally generated light further into the darkness.

    As the moon reflects the light of the sun, so we reflect the light of the Son in a world of darkness.

    And finally, lighthouses remind us of God’s love. Like the bright shining beam of a lighthouse, His love reaches out…piercing through the darkness of any storm.

    RESPONSE: Today and throughout this year I will be a lighthouse for Jesus, projecting His inner light and reflecting His light externally.

    PRAYER: Lord, may Your love and Your light pierce the darkness of the world around me as I stand strong and faithful for You like a lighthouse, today and through the year ahead.

  3. Lifting up prayers for all those under demonic influences of addiction. We pray that they be set free of any and all addictions that mask pain and keep them away from knowing the Lord. We must show them Love, never judge them and pray often for them. Pray for all those family members of theirs that are angry at them, so they may know the peace of the Lord. Everyone deserves a chance, and sometimes we need a lot of patience. Pray for patience too.

      1. Amen! Addictions are horrible! They separate from God, family and have one path the enemy is leading down.
        Praying too. We have those with addictions in our family. But for His grace and mercy, I would still be addicted too. He loves addicts and many can “see,” know the Word but that bondage is there.

  4. Please remember to lift up prayers for all those going through temptation and are currently in a state of delusion. The enemy is attacking big time and is working hard on all those that truly Love the Lord. Some people are compromising their faith, to fulfill personal wants. We all fall, can ask for forgiveness and we will be forgiven. If we fall into a state of delusion, we may think that our plans are not sin at all and never repent from that sin! Not good to risk eternal souls this way.

    STORMS CAN COME FROM OBEDIENCE
    That day when evening came, he [Jesus] said to his disciples, “Let us go over to the other side.” Leaving the crowd behind, they took him along, just as he was, in the boat. There were also other boats with him. A furious squall came up, and the waves broke over the boat, so that it was nearly swamped. Mark 4: 35-37

    (Read Mark 4:35-41)

    From the disciples experience we see that storms can arise just by following the path of obedience. We know that when Jesus says, “Let’s go to the other side,” we will reach the other side in spite of any storms.

    Ahmad was a respected Muslim leader and a brilliant scholar. While studying for his doctorate in comparative religions he began reading the New Testament and ultimately gave his life to Jesus. When Sharia, the law of Islam, became the law of the land, Ahmad was called in for questioning. When he admitted to being a Christian, he was arrested, put in chains, and thrown into solitary confinement.

    The first night in prison, the authorities tried to kill him. Unexplainably, however, they could find no gasoline for their car to drive him to the place of execution. The next day, he was to be arraigned before the Islamic High Court. A lawyer friend urged him to renounce his faith publicly and just keep it secretly in his heart. Ahmad refused. “Jesus is my only defence,” he said. “I cannot deny Him.”

    Ahmad was sentenced to six months in prison, stripped of his military rank, and fired from his teaching position. His wife had already divorced him. He also lost his four children, his car, house, and bank account.

    If at the end of his sentence he still refused to return to Islam, the judges said, he would spend six more months behind bars. Ahmad organized small Bible studies and prayer groups throughout the prison. “By the end of three months,” he said, “there were more than three hundred known Christians in our prison, at least seven from Muslim background.”

    One night, the guards threw Ahmad into a truck with orders to drown him in the river. But as the truck neared the river, it stopped mysteriously. Terrified, the guards and driver refused the officer’s orders to kill Ahmad. Soon after, he was released.

    RESPONSE: Today I will live in the awareness that storms are a normal part of life in this

    world and the wise disciple prepares for them.

    PRAYER: Pray that you will be cognizant of the storms you face which simply result from your obedience to Jesus.

  6. “It’s about time”

    Buried deep in the real of addictions often times there are echo’s of time warps in the spirit realm. These warps act like webs that are tied inside of the spirit realm. They can span across time and weave themselves down through the generations. They are also woven together not just with time but also place.

    Ever had series of dreams about the same place and time. These can and are clues that something not of God may have occurred in this time and place. In my own life after being radically called I failed to transfer total surrender to God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit and walked for a season with one foot in the Spirit and one foot in the world. Each step I took with the foot in the world the enemy of our soul date stamped it and tied it to this same place. This transferred to his ability to argue in the courts of heaven against me with Jesus. It went something like this” You cannot release or bless him cuz as he walked thinking he was doing something for the kingdom while at the same time he was also defiling himself and others both in real time and place each time he stepped out during his call with his foot in the world. The footprints became a memorial enshrining doubt and dis belief.

    These two elements( time and place) acted like a cloud of fog in my emotions. Upon approaching this emotion I experienced a paralysis and found myself unable to chart or steer a course in to the fog bank as it would take me back in to the emotion of fear which was an aspect of the mis aligned walk after being called. this is the same identical aspect which is in the domain of PTSD.

    Trauma related emotions tied to both time and place. What happens in the natural also happens in the spiritual aha moment here!

    It was not until I was able to begin to free myself from these moments and places that I had half heartedly walked with Jesus that I began to be able to steer through the fog of the PTSD and not only gain freedom but to enjoy a sense of victory over this aspect of the wiles of the enemy.

    Scoping out from here the Holy Spirit can and will reveal these things to us in order for his bride to not just prepare herself but to gain a stronger footing( so to speak) to do what will be God’s purposes for His Glorious Church in this next season.

    Best example of of another person who was called and acted out of his flesh in 1 Sam 25:1-44.
    David defiled both time, space as well as himself and his followers when he acted out of his flesh and marched against Nabal. He was averted during this time however paid a price later. I believe that God’s plan A for his Glorious church is not only not to have to continue to pay this kind of price but to gain victory over it so as to fulfil it’s destiny.

    It really is ” about time”!

  7. There is an entire theological domain which encompasses this aspect of the spiritual realm.
    The stronghold David wrestled with was Belial. It’s fabric of control and deception are wound tightly in and around time and place. It acts and operates like that of a puppeteer…. pulling the strings of it’s puppets against human kind while it’s head attorney argue this same same old case in the heavens.’ It is all about time! Something created by our King a second after the creation.

    when we defile this element of his creation expect to see Belial in operational mode. except we never get to see this one as it uses another entire family of spirits to act as it’s proxy or what we see in real time as the Jezebel family who comes with it’s close relatives Ahab and Athalia. In this struggle they act as the puppets of Belial and are used like chess pieces against the saints to render them ineffective. Think of Elijah in the cave of huddled and afraid for his life from Queen Jezebel. This was an operation of Belial.

    This aspect of warfare can and will be circular until the removal of the threads of the web of Belial are severed…. time and place. Pray for revelation knowledge to gain insight and freedom.

    1. Nabal is Laban reversed from genesis. Do you think Endtimeepoch there is a connection in these stories? Just shot in to My mind that there might be? Given time IT would be Nice to compare personalities of Nabal and Laban and what their actions brought forth in the biblical personage WHO made important things.

      From memory id say that adversity came in these stories in long term and more immediately. David was almost ready to kill and Jacob had to play the long game before he was on calm Waters again.

      But there might be more within it!

      1. Good aspects here to these two key characters.Same identical PLAY used in both instnces. Time and place. Laban though appears to have been in part closer to the will of God.The time robbed from Jacob was necessary for many reasons ie weath building in order to take what was his so he could restore relationships, wrestle for his blseeing, cross over and graduate to BECOMING Israel.( READ SON OF GOD)
        Nabal and Laban both functioned in same manner. They took and in the process demeaned the individuals in the process.
        This domain of taking as we know is one of the favorite plays of the enemy.
        Paul briefly touches on the gift of giver in Rom 12 when he describes the 7 redemptive gifts. To better understand the aspects of the gift of giver we cn arrange all 128 or so scripturesreferencing 7’s and arrrange them in correlation to the 5th gift in Paul’s writing. The 5th day of the initial 7 days of creation was when God introduced the birds and fish.Alsogrouped in this stew was the

  8. Leviathian. the spirit of Jezebel and Leviathian both twist from the same pole of current inside the giver gift. When they attack it resullts in the giver gift being blunted, stymied,, delayed etc as well as even corrupted.( same emotion stemming from trauma or fear in severe cases.) which acts like a catalist to our human spirit and glues us to time and place to set up the legal access to Belial and the rest of these powers.

    Same dynamics functioned aginst the Hebrews under the Midianites. they never governed them but instead raided their crops each year at the same time……. TIME. We have seen this aspect throughout hundreds of believers and have been graced to have been set free from this one as it is a curse which befell the Jews and still operates against believers today. If anyone ever experiences a devouring of $ at or around sametime of the year they have this curse against them.

    God had bigger plans for both Jacob and David and was successful in navigating them both to the paths of their destiny in spite of the attacks. Both became givers out of the process!

    If led to dig deeper they will also see that the destiny of the land which both stories tookplace in contained a giver element which benefitted both Laban and Nabal cept they were under the influences of these spirits in the negative sense( an entire space of theology revealed by the history of man’s defilement in the territory and divine revelation knowledge as to the task Paul describes as the duty of a son of God.) Reversing names or reusing them across the bible is a regurlar occurance.

    Was led to invest much to see, discern and battle against one of these character repeats in the bible already. Jaazaniah as depicted in these four components of the Hebrew history. Can offer much in this aspect for those led to delve deeply in to the elements of this spirit which in part is responsible for the veil and the blinders/ earplugs over the Jewish people. Read about him in Ezekiel to see the divine authority he has been given…. or at least up until a cretain designated time in God’s economy.

    Back to the subject… make no mistake… Both Laban and Nabal LOST an inredible blessing…. to have given to Jacob and David. Happy to referanyone tosources to gain more understanding and insight as so led.
