I’m not a country girl, so you can understand my shock when I learned from a good friend of mine how chickens will peck a new comer to death! As my friend began to explain to me how she had purchased 4 new hens to add to her group. She said, “Bonnie I wouldn’t dare just try and add one”. I sat there confused.
“Why not”? I asked. “Because they’ll PECK THEM TO DEATH. They’ll get up around the new ones and start pecking their beaks and eyeballs and once they get some blood coming forth, the rest join in a frenzy”. “There is a pecking order”, she said.
I couldn’t believe what I was hearing. I started realizing how difficult it is to be the new person at a new school, a new job, in a new family and other places of social activity. During my research on this topic I also discovered that rejection and bullying can cause multiple health issues, neurological disorders and a host of fears.
Rejection is a word that comes from Latin and means to be “THROWN BACKWARDS”. You’ve heard the term, “two steps forward and 3 steps back, and it’s the same type thing. You can be rejected due to a weight issue, a birth defect, your race, or even success. Sometimes rejection is due to fear. One of the worst rejections to experience is from your very own family.
“He came to his own, and his OWN PEOPLE did not receive him” John 1:11. Jesus was rejected by the 12 when he needed them the most. He had to walk people out of his own home town because he (The Son of God) was not able to heal many there due to their unbelief. He was rejected by men who said they would die for Him (Peter) only to deny they ever knew Him.
Dr. Bessel van der Kolk, a well-known trauma researcher, explains; “Research has shown that, under ordinary conditions, many traumatized people, including rape victims, battered women and abused children, have a fairly good psychosocial adjustment. However, they do not respond to stress the way other people do. Under pressure, they may feel (or act) as if they were traumatized all over again”… Here is the problem: THEY ARE THROW BACKWARDS.
But what is happening to our systematic nervous system when we feel threatened, rejected and shunned? Or even worse, what happens when you are being hen pecked to death! The systematic nervous system or what one site refers to as SNS is worth learning about.
Jurriaan Plesman BA(Psych writes this, “…An overactive SNS is likely to open up blood vessels and flood your face, neck and ears in blushing. Other possible symptoms are: dizziness, shaking, trembling, (as when giving a talk in front of people), digestive disorders, swallowing problems, nausea, vomiting, or fear of vomiting or diarrhea, irregular heartbeats, ticks and restless legs, excessive sweating, depersonalization, incontinence, impotence, repetitive thoughts…on and on it goes. It is obvious that these mental and bodily reactions helps to prepare the body for strenuous and quick actions in the face of danger”…. Wow! A lot is going on in our bodies when we are being surrounded by a group of hens fighting for their order.
Perhaps you’ve experienced being the new chicken in the chicken yard a time or two. I can honestly say it’s not fun. You can get hen pecked to death and yes, once the blood comes it seems the other chickens do join in. That’s why parents hate bullies. No one wants to watch their child get hurt at a new school or neighborhood. No spouse wants to watch their husband or wife be rejected by their friends or family members. Being a new step mother of father can be difficult. Being a new teacher, a new pastor, a new manager can stir up the chicken yard.
Remember how the word rejection meant thrown back? Well, that’s important, because it has been shown time and again that the more free throws a player misses, the worse he will do at the line. Why? Because he is so worried about making the shot, so nervous and on edge about the score, team pressure and so forth that he misses it again. It’s like trying to fit in a new school, a new family, a new job, a new leadership spot, if each time you try and reach out for acceptance you get shunned, eventually it looks too hard to keep trying. YOU GIVE UP…You get thrown backwards! Webster defines rejection as to refuse to accept, consider, submit to, take for some purpose, or use, it goes on to say, to refuse to hear, receive, or admit”…Rejection is one of the worst feelings a person can feel.
“Psychologist Jessica Witt at Purdue University found that after a series of missed field goal kicks, players perceived the field post to be taller and narrower than before. However, after a series of successful kicks, athletes reported the post to appear larger than before. It is easy to witness the power of rejection. The more we encounter rejection, the more we view our efforts as pointless, the less we try, and the farther away our goal seems. It’s like the 4 chickens my friend tried to add to the bunch, they just weren’t fitting in.
So I wanted to go farther with this blog and get to THE ROOT of why people reject others.
“Now Israel loved Joseph more than any of his other sons, because he had been born to him in his old age; and he made an ornate robe for him. When his brothers saw that their father loved him more than any of them, they HATED him and COULD NOT SPEAK A KIND WORD to him” Genesis 37:3. JEALOUSY…
David said this, “Those who HATE ME WITHOUT CAUSE outnumber the hairs on my head. Many enemies try to destroy me with lies, demanding that I give back what I didn’t steal. Psalm 69:4… JESUS SAID THE SAME THING in John 15:24-25, “”If I had not done among them the works which no one else did, they would not have sin; but now they have both seen and hated Me and My Father as well. “But they have done this to fulfill the word that is written in their Law, ‘THEY HATED ME “WITHOUT A CAUSE”.’
Do people hate you without cause? Do they try and peck you to death? You’re in good company.
David said, “Ruthless witnesses come forward; they question me on things I know nothing about” Psalm 35:11.
The prophet Isaiah said this about Jesus …“He was despised and rejected by men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief…” Isaiah 53:3.
Perhaps you are in a new chicken coop and the players are pecking you to pieces. Remember they did it to Jesus and Joseph. Perhaps you are tired of trying to fit in the chicken yard and tired of being THROWN BACKWARDS?
I know a man who also had a chicken problem and now he is famously known all over the world. Harland David Sanders: Perhaps better known as Colonel Sanders of Kentucky Fried Chicken. The Colonel had a hard time selling his chicken at first. In fact, his famous secret chicken recipe was REJECTED 1,009 times before a restaurant accepted it. Don’t let the chickens peck you to death, chances are you don’t belong in the yard with them. Birds of a feather flock together but the mighty eagle, HE SOARS ALONE
There is an old Rabbi (not mentioning name) who has unlocked a bible code and has found hidden messages. You can buy software and uncover your own findings at home using a program he helped create that follows sequences coded in the Torah. This Rabbi predicts that the Messiah could return in 2015 or 2017 from what he has uncovered. I am going to talk to you about another Prophetic voice from centuries before, who predicted something eerily the same.
Have you ever heard people say, “Know your enemy?” Of course you have. That is how a military takes plan of action, it’s to be one step ahead of the next plot, the next attack, and the next bomb. Sometimes the people we think are our enemies are ignorant bystanders. Sometimes we are ignorant bystanders. Christians and Muslims believe in many of the same doctrines. Note, I said doctrines. One of those doctrines is hell. I spoke with a couple Muslims who told me how God is going to catch the earth on fire and there will be no more sea or water. They also believe only those sealed in their forehead will be saved. Sound familiar? I thought so. Below is their verse in italics.
Thou wilt see the guilty on that day linked together in chains, their raiment of pitch, and the Fire covering their faces. 14:49-50
The name of the anti-christ in Islam is Al-Masīḥ ad-Dajjāl, or just Dajjal which means “the deceiving Messiah”, a specific end-of times deceiver. The Dajjāl, according to Muslims, is an evil being who will seek to impersonate the true Messiah…Paul said something similar in 2nd Thessalonians, “He will oppose and will exalt himself over everything that is called God or is worshiped, so that he sets himself up in God’s temple, proclaiming himself to be God” 2:4. A false Messiah.
First John says, “Who is the liar? It is the man who denies that Jesus is the Christ. Such a man is the antichrist–he denies the Father and the Son. No one who denies the Son has the Father; whoever acknowledges the Son has the Father also. 1 John 2:22,23.
Now here is the catch…The Quran says that Jesus himself never claimed to be the Son of God, and it furthermore indicates that Jesus will deny having ever claimed divinity at the Last Judgment, and God will vindicate him. However the most popular title given to Jesus in the Koran is Messiah. They believe He will come before Muhammad, near the Day of Judgment and restore justice and defeat this FALSE MESSIAH…Oh it’s getting DEEP! I am really not liking religion lately. I also feel ignorance of other religions is the cause of most wars in the world and most FEAR and HATRED. This blog is meant to try and bring revelation to what is going on in the news today. So what does this false Messiah look like to them?
Muhammad described this (Anti-Christ) this way, “Dajjal is blind in the right eye and his eye looks like a bulging out grape”. Islamic scholars write this, “Allah’s Apostle said.”While I was sleeping, I saw myself (in a dream)… Behold, I saw a reddish-white man with lank hair, and water was dropping from his head. I asked, “who is this?’ They replied, ‘The son of Mary.’ Then I turned my face to see another man with a huge body, red complexion and curly hair and blind in one eye. His eye looked like a protruding out grape. They said (to me), he is Ad-Dajjal.”
Guess whose symbol and military, police badges have the eye protruding? Saudi Arabia’s.
Now if you are a Christian and are reading this its pretty probable to say that you have read Revelations 13 and know a little about the mark of the beast and the anti-christ. So I thought I would share what Muhammad said would happen to people before the Dajjal (Anti-Christ) comes…
- Muhammad is reported to have said:
- People will stop offering the prayers
- Dishonesty will be the way of life
- Falsehood will become a virtue
- People will mortgage their faith for worldly gain
- Usury and bribery will become legitimate
- There will be acute famine at the time
- There will be no shame amongst people
- Many people would worship Satan
- There would be no respect for elderly people
Now let’s look at what the book of 2nd Timothy says will happen,
“But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God—having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people”.
Fear is something many don’t understand today in religion. We have Muslims fearing and running from ISIS who believe in the same prophet named Muhammad and his god Allah. Why is that? Here is a verse from the Koran:
“Surely those who believe, and those who are Jews, and the Christians, and the Sabians, whoever believes in Allah and the Last day and does good, they shall have their reward from their Lord, and there is no fear for them, nor shall they grieve. Surah 2:62.
However, we are grieving.
Have you ever been curious as to what the Quran says besides “kill the infidel?” Perhaps not? Maybe just speaking about it puts a fear of demons or devils into your mind? A woman with a mixed up mingled religion responded to Jesus and he responded to her, let’s read that, “Sir,” the woman said, “I can see that you are a prophet. Our ancestors worshiped on this mountain, but you Jews claim that the place where we must worship is in Jerusalem.”
“Woman,” Jesus replied, “believe me, a time is coming when you will worship the Father neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem. YOU SAMARITANS WORSHIP WHAT YOU DO NOT KNOW; we worship what we do know, for salvation is from the Jews. John 4:20-22. SALVATION IS NOT FROM MUHAMMAD, NOR IS IT FROM CHRISTIANS, IT IS FROM “THE JEWS”. I am not yelling, but want to make the point clear.
Judah Ben Samuel was a legendary and prolific German rabbi of the 12th century who made some astonishing and specific predictions about the future of Jerusalem and Israel that came true. Here is what he said. I think you will find this shocking…
“When the Ottomans (Turks) – who were already a power to be reckoned with on the Bosporus in the time of Judah Ben Samuel – conquer Jerusalem they will rule over Jerusalem for eight jubilees. Afterwards Jerusalem will become no-man’s land for one jubilee, and then in the ninth jubilee it will once again come back into the possession of the Jewish nation – which would signify the beginning of the Messianic end time.”
One jubilee is 50 years (Leviticus 25). It is the 50th year after seven times seven years, the year in which each person should regain ownership of his or her land. Ben Samuel’s was not able to experience their fulfillment, for it was 300 years after his death that the first of his predictions came true.
The Mamluks, who had been reigning in Jerusalem since 1250, were conquered in 1517 by the Ottoman Turks. They remained for eight jubilees (8 x 50 = 400 years), that is to say they were in Jerusalem for 400 years. Exactly 400 years later, in 1917, the Ottoman Turks were conquered by the British. The League of Nations conferred the Mandate for the Holy Land and Jerusalem to the British. Thus, from 1917, under international law, Jerusalem was no-man’s land.
Then, when Israel captured Jerusalem in the Six Day War of 1967, exactly one jubilee (50 years) after 1917, Jerusalem reverted to Jewish-Israeli ownership once again. Thereby, according to the prophecies of Judah Ben Samuel, the Messianic End Times began.
But to recap the astonishing predictions: In AD 1217 this scholarly and pious rabbi prophesied that the Ottoman Turks would rule over the holy city of Jerusalem for eight Jubilees. Now, keep in mind, he made this prediction 300 years before the Ottoman Turks seized control of Jerusalem in 1517. If indeed 1217 and 1517 were jubilee years as Judah Ben Samuel believed, then his prophecy was exactly right, because exactly 400 years after the Turks took control of Jerusalem they were driven out of the city and the holy land in 1917 by the Allied forces under the command of General George Allenby – on Hanukkah, by the way.
But it gets more interesting still.
The rabbi also prophesied that during the ninth Jubilee Jerusalem would be a “no-man’s land.” This is exactly what happened from 1917 to 1967, due to the fact that the Holy Land was placed under British Mandate in 1917 by the League of Nations and literally “belonged” to no nation.
Even after Israel’s war of independence in 1948-49, Jerusalem was still divided by a strip of land running right through the heart of the city, with Jordan controlling the eastern part of the city and Israel controlling the western part of the city. That strip of land was considered and even called “no-man’s land” by both the Israelis and the Jordanians.
It was not until the Six Day War in 1967 when the entire West Bank of the Holy Land was conquered by the Israeli army that the whole city of Jerusalem passed back into the possession of Israel. So once again the prophecy made by the rabbi 750 years previously was fulfilled to the letter.
It certainly would be significant if both 1917 and 1967 were Jubilee years, considering the significance of what happened in Jerusalem on those years. But it gets even more interesting, because Judah Ben Samuel also prophesied that during the 10th Jubilee Jerusalem would be under the control of the Jews and the Messianic “end times” would begin. If he’s right, the 10th Jubilee began in 1967 and will be concluded in 2017”…
YES, 2017… Interesting, we will see what pans out!
The information comes from this website, http://www.wnd.com/2012/11/12th-century-rabbi-predicted-israels-future/
Jews are waiting for the Messiah to come. The Christians are waiting for Jesus, and Muslims are waiting for both the Mahdi and Jesus. Who is the Mahdi you may be asking? He is their savior who also appears on a white stallion and their prophets prophesy about his coming and how Jesus comes with him. According to their ancient men, they say in the time of the Mahdi, a Muslim in the East will be able to see his Muslim brother in the West, and he in the West will see him in the East. With cell phones and internet this prophesy has already came about.
Now what I find very interesting is back in the early 2000’s and late 90’s, Evangelist Perry Stone began warning about the Mahdi and the white horse. I remembered that I had never heard such a thing and I began to get on-line and study up on this topic. Many books have been written on the Mahdi, below in italics is a passage from one.
“The Mahdi will establish right and justice in the world and eliminate evil and corruption. He will fight against the enemies of the Muslims who would be victorious. He will reappear on the appointed day, and then he will fight against the forces of evil, lead a world revolution and set up a new world order based on justice, righteousness and virtue…ultimately the righteous will take the world administration in their hands and Islam will be victorious over all the religions. Al-Sadr and Mutahhari pg 4, 5.
Now what I found extremely interesting is that these prophesies given to the Muslims are also found in our bible and I believe it is mentioned in two parts. The first one is found in Revelations 6:1-2. This chapter is about the 4 horses and I believe we are living in this time frame and I want to explain why. “And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to CONQUER”. This horse is not Jesus/ Yeshua. This horse is the Mhadi. The Muslims believe the Mhadi will appear on a white horse and he will be given a crown or authority to rule the world. Yeshua/Jesus shows up on his white horse in Revelations 19.
Let’s look at the difference in how these two riders are described.
“And I saw heaven opened, and behold a WHITE HORSE; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God. And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, King Of Kings, And Lord Of Lords. 19:11-16 KJV.
As you can see this is Jesus, the KING of KINGS. There is a second group of scriptures that I believe are closely related to this Mhadi and the evil we are seeing today. But first I want to tell you what the prophets of Islam proclaim and if you think God doesn’t speak to other prophets in other nations read up on Balaam and how he was hired by a prince to curse God’s people and how God spoke to him and warned him not to curse the Israelites. Remember God referred to Nebuchadnezzar as His servant. Their prophets have said for ages that the Mahdi will not ascend until after a great army from the east arrive with black flags and banners of war. When you see the black flags know that time is nigh. These messengers of war are said to have hearts of steel and I think we all could agree by the horrific videos of slaughter, beheadings, burying people and children alive and so forth that their hearts have to be made of iron. The black flags are flying folks! Again let’s read from the author about this religion and its flags. I think you may be quite surprised.
“In Islam there are two flags. One is white and one is black. Written across both flags in Arabic are the words, “There is no God but Allah and Muhammad is his Messenger”. The white flag is called Al-Liwaa and serves as the sign for the leader of the Muslim army and is the flag of the Islamic State. The black flag is called Ar-Raya and is used by the Muslim army. It is also called the flag of jihad, and is carried into battle. One flag is governmental and the other is a military flag. 19 When Muhammad returned to his home city of Mecca after being exiled for eight years, he returned as a conqueror. With him were ten thousand Muslim soldiers. They carried with them black flags. On the flags was one word written in Arabic: punishment. 20 … The article continues and becomes more radical…
The Mahdi will be victorious and eradicate those pigs and dogs and the idols of this time so that there will once more be a caliphate based on prophethood as the hadith states… Jerusalem will be the location of the rightly guided caliphate and the center of Islamic rule, which will be headed by Imam al-Mahdi… That will abolish the leadership of the Jews… and put an end to the domination of the Satans who spit evil into people and cause corruption in the earth, making them slaves of false idols and ruling the world by laws other than the Shari’a [Islamic Law] of the Lord of the worlds. (Emphasis mine) 22
As you can see by the article above they think of us and the Jews as infidels and pigs, dogs even… Revelations 6 also goes into detail about the beheadings of the saints and the souls under the altar crying out. God tells them they have to wait for their brothers and sisters to also be martyred. Recently in Britain, Muslims seized a British soldier and right on the street in front of witnesses they cut his head off in broad daylight, near an intersection. Right in the open. This is a religion of war. This is going to become more and more present in the media and the world is going to see evil they have never experienced. If you are hearing peace, peace and itching ear words at your church houses be sure God said, ‘Peace, peace,’ they say to you, when there is no peace. Jeremiah 6:14. If you think Im brain washed pull up Instagram and youtube and watch the videos of bodies stacked up and people being buried with their heads sticking up screaming as they shovel over them rocks and dirt.
As I was studying this prophet they are waiting on I was led to Joel chapter 2. This chapter has always spoken to me loudly but with all the breaking news I suddenly saw something I had missed. I have heard Christians talk about the rapture and waiting for Jesus to come and take them out of the earth but I wonder if they realize how dark that day will be? I wonder if they are aware that we are in tribulation, as hundreds of thousands are being persecuted.
Let’s read some of Joel, “Blow ye the trumpet in Zion, and SOUND AN ALARM in my holy mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land TREMBLE: for the day of the Lord cometh, for it is nigh at hand; A day of DARKNESS and of gloominess, a day of clouds and of THICK DARKNESS, as the morning spread upon the mountains: A GREAT PEOPLE and A STRONG; there hath not been ever the like, neither shall be any more after it, even to the years of many generations. A fire devoureth before them; and behind them a flame burneth: the land is as the garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness; yea, and nothing shall escape them. THE APPEARANCE OF THEM IS AS THE APPEARANCE OF HORSES; and as horsemen, so shall they run.” The horses are running folks.
Remember the 4 horses we read about earlier and the Mhadi, I want you to keep this army in mind as you read these verses. When they seize this nation and lay hold of it all the horses will be seen galloping. Once the control of the military, oil, food and so forth is given to them you will be at their hands for your needs. This is where the mark of the beast comes in to play. Buying and selling no man could do unless he had the mark. It was the mark of a man and his number was 666. It is said to be in the forehead and the right hand. Have you ever seen these Muslims pray? They press their forehead down and their right hand. The ISIS are already selling oil on the black market and have millions coming in to fund their military. I want to continue on with more of Joel chapter 2.
5 Like the noise of chariots on the tops of mountains shall they leap, like the noise of a flame of fire that devoureth the stubble, as A STRONG PEOPLE SET IN BATTLE ARRAY. Before their face the people shall be MUCH PAINED: all faces shall gather blackness. They shall run like mighty men; they shall climb the wall like men of war; and they shall march everyone on his ways, and they shall not break their ranks”
Have you ever noticed how the Muslims line up in ranks and pray prostrated and how they have no fear? Joel continues, “Neither shall one thrust another; they shall walk everyone in his path: and when they fall upon the sword, they shall not be wounded. They shall run to and fro in the city; they shall run upon the wall, they shall climb up upon the houses; they shall enter in at the windows like a thief. The earth shall quake before them; the heavens shall tremble: the sun and the moon shall be dark, and the stars shall withdraw their shining: AND THE LORD SHALL UTTER HIS VOICE BEFORE HIS ARMY: for his camp is very great: for he is strong that executeth his word: for the day of the Lord is great and VERY TERRIBLE; and who can abide it? Therefore also now, saith the Lord, turn ye even to me with all your heart, and with fasting, and with weeping, and with mourning:
13 And rend your heart, and not your garments, and turn unto the Lord your God: for he is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and repenteth him of the evil.
14 Who knoweth if he will return and repent, and leave a blessing behind him; even a meat offering and a drink offering unto the Lord your God?
15 Blow the trumpet in Zion, sanctify A FAST, call a solemn assembly:
16 Gather the people, sanctify the congregation, assemble the elders, gather the children, and those that suck the breasts: let the bridegroom go forth of his chamber, and the bride out of her closet.
17 Let the priests, the ministers of the Lord, weep between the porch and the altar, and let them say, Spare thy people, O Lord, and give not thine heritage to reproach, that the heathen should rule over them: wherefore should they say among the people, Where is their God?
18 Then will the Lord be jealous for his land, and pity his people.
I THINK IT’S PAST TIME TO CALL A FAST AND A SOLEMN HEART FELT PRAYER MEETING. We can meet in our assemblies and sing and praise and give flowery words to the people and the ministers, but is it really the season for that? Call me crazy but I don’t think so…
A Matter of Understanding
I will never forget receiving a call from my pastor. His voice was urgent; he needed me to drive over to the church as soon as possible. A woman tormented by evil spirits was on her way, accompanied by her husband and the pastor was requesting my help to pray over her. I remember feeling so helpless and so inadequate. I told God on the way there that He would have to take over, yes, He would have to give me discernment and wisdom concerning this woman.
I can still picture her face and her tears. She was so fearful and so tormented; her body was literally shaking as she told stories of how she couldn’t even say the name, Jesus. I listened as she tried to enunciate each syllable and her eyes were wild looking. She had tried to read her Bible the night before, but couldn’t speak the words. Something was controlling her and causing her to feel as if she was being strangled. There were bruises on her arms and places that looked red.
After praying over her, the pastor left the room to get some paper work for her to fill out. In that second the Holy Spirit quickened me, “Bonnie, take her hand and CAST OUT THE SPIRIT OF DEATH.” I immediately did what I was instructed to do and prayed for more spirits to leave. As I prayed I really didn’t feel anything or understand totally what God was doing.
The next morning this woman called me on the phone, she said, “Bonnie, I know that you are unaware of this, but I have been contemplating suicide for months. I already had it all planned out. I even went and bought a dress to be buried in; it’s hanging in my closet. I have cut my wrist repeatedly and I have a bottle of sleeping pills I was going to take. Every night I am tormented by this demon and cannot sleep, but last night after you prayed for me I had the most peaceful sleep. I have no desire now to take my life.” As she continued on, her voice elated with new hope, it brought me strength.
Whatever prayer I prayed the day before had enough TNT behind it to send that demon of death packing and fleeing! To God be the glory! This was just one spirit, and it was a spirit of death, but how many spirits are there and who sends them?
I became strangely interested in one type of spirit in the Bible called a ‘LYING SPIRIT’. This spirit could enter into a prophet or a priest and this spirit called LYING, had a voice and that voice SPOKE TO MY LORD just as you and I speak to Him.
Let’s read, “And there came forth A SPIRIT and stood before the Lord, and said, I will persuade him. And the Lord said unto him, wherewith? And he said, I will go forth and I WILL BE a LYING SPIRIT in the MOUTH of all HIS PROPHETS. And he said, Thou shalt persuade him, and prevail also: GO FORTH AND DO SO.” (1 Kings 22:21-22 KJV)
After reading this and other scriptures, I wondered why I had never heard a preacher or teacher, discuss the spirits God sent to torment people. God would never do that right?
“And if the prophet be deceived when he hath spoken a thing, I the LORD have DECEIVED that prophet, and I will stretch out my hand upon him, and will DESTROY him from the midst of my people Israel.” (Ezekiel 14:9 KJV) This is a revelation and an eye opener. I want you to read more because it becomes even more astounding.
“For this cause God shall send them STRONG DELUSION so that they should BELIEVE A LIE.” (2 Thessalonians 2:11 KJV) God is in control, as I said before and He even sends the demons. Read the next verse slowly, “He cast upon them the fierceness of his anger, wrath, and indignation, and trouble, by sending EVIL ANGELS among them.” (Psalm 78:49 KJV) Who sent the evil (destroying) angels? Wasn’t it Satan? No! It was God who sent them. Listen closely to the following story about more spirits that God has sent.
“But the spirit of the Lord departed from Saul, and AN EVIL SPIRIT FROM THE LORD TROUBLED HIM. And Saul’s servants said unto him, Behold now, an evil spirit FROM GOD troubleth thee.” (1 Samuel 16:14-15 KJV)
According to these scriptures God can send evil spirits and lying spirits and spirits to deceive, to whomever He pleases. He is God. I encourage you to look up the verses and see for yourselves what I am saying is truth.
The Bible says, “And it came to pass, when the EVIL SPIRIT FROM GOD was upon Saul, that David took a harp, and played with his hand: so Saul was refreshed, and was well, and the evil spirit departed from him.” (1 Samuel 16:23 KJV) So we see that this evil spirit could come and go as he pleased. David had the ability to bring Saul out of sickness and exhaustion to a state of refreshment. Both stories have one thing in common; the lying spirits and the evil spirit were sent from God. Let’s study this closer.
Judges 9:23 NAS “Then GOD SENT an EVIL SPIRIT between Abimelech and the men of Shechem; and the men of Shechem dealt treacherously with Abimelech…”
Sounds like God is in control of more spirits than we know. How do you cast out a spirit GOD SENT? What if God wants you to have a spirit? The apostle Paul said it best, “And lest I should be exalted above measure through the abundance of the revelations, there was given to me a thorn in the flesh, THE MESSENGER OF SATAN TO BUFFET ME, lest I should be exalted above measure. For this thing I besought the Lord thrice, that it might depart from me.” (2 Corinthians 12:7-9 KJV)
So Paul tried three times to do self-deliverance and nothing happened. Hmmm, isn’t this Paul who was so anointed people were healed by his apron cloths? Let’s read on. “And God wrought special miracles by the hands of Paul: So that from his body were brought unto the sick handkerchiefs or aprons, and the diseases departed from them, and the evil spirits went out of them.” (Acts 19:11-12, KJV) But what did God say to Paul after He had sent him a MESSENGER FROM SATAN to buffet him? “And he said unto Paul, “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.” (2 Corinthians 12:7-9 KJV)
When you think about this, clearly you can see Satan would want Paul to become exalted above measure; he would want him puffed up and filled with pride.
So we see unmistakably that God is in control of all powers and all spirits. “Who is gone into heaven and is on the right hand of God; angels and authorities and powers being made SUBJECT unto HIM.” (1 Peter 3:22 KJV)
So how do we explain transference of spirits? In the next chapter we will look at this doctrine.
For some time now I have held back from speaking a lot of things because although they may have been truth, it was not what I knew people wanted to hear or talk about. I am through trying to make sure people approve of it and more worried about what Yahweh is telling me to speak. I want to give you a taste of what I see approaching our nation…
I watched a documentary on Vice news channel and I seen first hand how ISIS (Extreme Terrorist) leaders go about their cities they control and take notice of what is being done…
Now I want you to take notice…
First they stop at a video store and have a man take down a picture of a Hollywood film and they tell him we are not affiliated with such filth. We are staying pure before our god. Then they stop a man with his wife and they ask him to come over to their jeep. They are armed with guns strapped across their chest. They point at a woman and they say is that your wife? The man says yes. They say, “She needs to change her colorful head scarf and I can see her ankles in that short flock, PRESERVE YOUR WIFE. YOU DO NOT WANT OTHER MEN LOOKING ON HER, SHE IS YOURS, GIVEN TO YOU BY ALLAH. The man smiles and says okay, he will do something. They move on and enter stores and question the prices of meats and if they are over charging the people. You must not over charge the poor. They continue to show the men taking away any person with alcohol and cigarettes to prison. The men they interviewed said, “It has been good for me to be here in prison. I am repenting to my god and god is good. I deserve the lashes. They will whip me with lashes. This is according to the law of their prophets book…After the lashes they will go free. They also showed men who were convicted of murder. They were on display in the public square crucified… Yes, its still happening in the world. Here is the thing, yes they are forcing people to do an outward, RELIGIOUS works. They have no grace or mercy. However we do look like infidels to them. No, we are infidels, with our sex everywhere and our filthy movies, porn, sex trafficking, self indulging lifestyles that cry me, me, me…Our men parade their trophy wives and they get them boob jobs and buy them push up bras and they brag about them to all their friends…Cover your wives men! Cover your daughter’s men! COVER YOUR HOUSEHOLD WITH PRAYER…Here is the other thing, we took OUR GOD YAHWEH OUT OF OUR NATION… We also think we are SMARTER THAN HIM. Now God had enough of this in the old Testament and he sent His servant Nebuchadnezzar and his great army went in and cut their heads off, burned their temple down, raped and even cut open bellies looking for gold they may have swallowed in order to survive. They left their bodies in heaps and robbed, raped and gutted their children. God left a remnant and he said after 70 years, one year for every Sabbath you have not kept, after 70 years I will come and bring you out. for I know the plans I have for you says the Lord of Host, plans to prosper you and give you a hope and a future…
Let’s take a look at history. Yes, because History repeats itself…
Josephus, the war of the Jews…
“ The next verses are when the temple was burned down and destroyed…
“But as for the legions that came running thither, neither any persuasions nor any threatenings could restrain their violence, but each one’s own passion was his commander at this time; and as they were crowding into the temple together, many of them were trampled on by one another, while a great number fell among the ruins of the cloisters, which were still hot and smoking, and were destroyed in the same miserable way with those whom they had conquered; and when they were come near the holy house, they made as if they did not so much as hear Caesar’s orders to the contrary; but they encouraged those that were before them to set it on fire. As for the seditious, they were in too great distress already to afford their assistance [towards quenching the fire]; they were everywhere slain, and everywhere beaten; and as for a great part of the people, they were weak and without arms, and had their throats cut wherever they were caught. Now round about the altar lay dead bodies heaped one upon another, as at the steps (16) going up to it ran a great quantity of their blood, whither also the dead bodies that were slain above [on the altar] fell down.
Folks this sounds real familiar. Its what’s happening to the Christians in other nations.
Now we Americans have been fed lies. We have been fed an itching ear religion that says we wont have to suffer and go through any tribulation. We have seen the scriptures placed in an order that appears to be truth but its not. We have been taught lies by men with GOOD INTENTIONS. Men I believe who mean well. Who want to give positive words and those are good at times and we all need them but where has THE FEAR OF GOD WENT? They say don’t worry about tribulation we will be air lifted. No need to prepare or repent, you are the head and not the tail. America is the tail. We are broke, busted and our constitution has lost its power. Now we have a wicked country. Our children listen to things and do things are grandparents would have never allowed nor imagined. They talk about things that would make them blush. They use language only sailors were speculated at using. The Laws of the land mean nothing. They are AS WEAK AS OUR MIGHTY DOLLAR THAT SAYS IN GOD WE TRUST but has no worth or value. We have taken Him out of everything and we expect Him to bless us? Wake up Saints. Its getting dark and I mean dark like the black flag of Isis that someone stood in front of the white house and made an Instagram of it flowing there.
Furthermore I want you to know that they are not all from the Middle East. Many Americans and Australians, Britain’s and so forth, are joining their religion. Not only that but they put out over 20,000 instragrams, twitter post and facebook videos a day encouraging the men in the west to leave their meaningless lifestyles of working for material possessions and take over the world… They have thousands and thousands of followers per person with accounts. The people take their flag and post doves with it and heaven and their god. They do not live in caves unlearnt. They live all over the world. They are highly trained and ready to control the world with their religious beliefs. Extreme? YES! Wicked? YES! But are we a HOLY NATION? I think not… When Daddy God has a house, He has rules. We have not obeyed them. Should we go unpunished? Below is how Nehemiah prayed for his nation. I am asking you to say it with him today for yours…
“And it came to pass, when I heard these words, that I sat down and wept, and mourned certain days, and fasted, and prayed before the God of heaven,
5 And said, I beseech thee, O Lord God of heaven, the great and terrible God, that keepeth covenant and mercy for them that love him and observe his commandments:
6 Let thine ear now be attentive, and thine eyes open, that thou mayest hear the prayer of thy servant, which I pray before thee now, day and night, for the children of Israel thy servants, and confess the sins of the children of Israel, which we have sinned against thee: both I and my father’s house have sinned.
7 We have dealt very corruptly against thee, and have not kept the commandments, nor the statutes, nor the judgments, which thou commandedst thy servant Moses.
8 Remember, I beseech thee, the word that thou commandedst thy servant Moses, saying, If ye transgress, I will scatter you abroad among the nations:
9 But if ye turn unto me, and keep my commandments, and do them; though there were of you cast out unto the uttermost part of the heaven, yet will I gather them from thence, and will bring them unto the place that I have chosen to set my name there.
10 Now these are thy servants and thy people, whom thou hast redeemed by thy great power, and by thy strong hand.
11 O Lord, I beseech thee, let now thine ear be attentive to the prayer of thy servant, and to the prayer of thy servants, who desire to fear thy name: and prosper, I pray thee, thy servant this day, and grant him mercy in the sight of this man. For I was the king’s cupbearer”.
Revelations chapter 6 speaks loudly as well. If you get the time read it… God bless…
Who Controls the Spirits?
I once knew a lady who blamed everything rotten in her life on Satan. I witnessed her scream at her car with over two hundred thousand miles on it, “SATAN, TAKE YOUR FILTHY HANDS OFF MY CAR!” She would take her fist and pound on the dashboard repeatedly when the clutch would slip. Maybe the car was just worn out and old from many good years of service?
Not only did she believe Satan attacked her car, but any appliance that refused to work and furthermore anything that seemed to bring her annoyance. If the line was too long at the store or if she forgot her pin number to her bank card, she would scream, “Satan, take your hands off my mind! SATAN you must BOW under MY authority!” I wondered how long he would stay bowed at her command.
This disturbing behavior also seemed to be present among her close circle of friends. They were forever BINDING something or TALKING TO THE ENEMY. On more than one occasion I overheard the names of different devils that were sent by the adversary to destroy them and sabotage their very day. You would have thought that they were close to being imprisoned like the apostle Paul to be put under such attacks and yet Paul never told Satan to take his filthy paws off of him.
Is everything that goes wrong in our life due to Satan (ha-Satan)? “Ha-Satan is usually translated as “the accuser” or “adversary”. “ha”- translates in English as “the” is used to show THIS IS A TITLE given to a being, VERSUS THE NAME of a being. For instance “The baker” is a title of a man or women who bakes breads, but that is not their name.
There are many stories in the Bible about devils and spirits. Matthew 10:1 KJV states that when Jesus/Yeshua called His twelve disciples unto him that “He gave them POWER against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease.”
Paul said, “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” (Ephesians 6:12 KJV) This scripture has been used as an example of a spiritual hierarchy of demons and devils. However, when we read the same words in Titus 3:1 KJV it says, “Put them in mind to BE SUBJECT TO PRINCIPALITIES AND POWERS, to OBEY MAGISTRATES, to be ready to every good work.” Principalities and Powers are not always demons but may be our government leaders, be careful with word translations. We must first ask ourselves what the apostles were wrestling with at that time in the natural. Let me give you some examples. “Now about that time, Herod the king laid hands on some who belonged to the church in order to mistreat them. And he had James the brother of John put to death with a sword.” (Acts 12:1-2 NAS) This Herod was not the same Herod that beheaded John the Baptist, no, that was Herod Agrippa. Also if you are well versed, you may remember another Herod who slew all the baby boys under the age of two in Bethlehem, hoping to slaughter the Messiah.
Perhaps, you may see the pattern I am showing you. We have spiritual wickedness in high places in our own nation of America. We have leaders who support horrific abominations in office right now. At this time let’s go back and reread the scripture above that Paul wrote in a PRISON CELL and see if you see it differently. “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” (Ephesians 6:12 KJV) Now I want you to picture Yeshua/Jesus on the throne, sitting at the right hand of the Father.
When we read Ephesians 1:19-23 KJV we see even a larger picture, “And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to usward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power, which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places, FAR ABOVE ALL PRINCIPALITY, and POWER, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come. And hath put ALL THINGS under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church (assembly).” Now, we can see this verse also means Christ is over every world leader, HE IS HEAD over ALL!
Christ is above all PRINCIPALITIES AND POWERS AND DOMINION because HE is the Torah or WORD made flesh. John said, “The Word was made flesh”…The word ‘principality’ in the Hebrew is ‘marashah’ and it means headship. When they came to arrest Jesus he said, “My kingdom is not of this world. If My kingdom were of this world, then My servants would be fighting so that I would not be handed over to the Jews; but as it is, My kingdom is not of this realm.”(John 18:36 NAS)
Satan is clearly under Christ’s feet because HE OVERCAME EVERY TEMPTATION, but is he under yours? Matthew 4:1 says, “Then was Jesus LED up OF THE SPIRIT into the wilderness to be TEMPTED of the devil.” The devil didn’t come and hunt down Jesus and begin tempting him, no, HE WAS LED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT. The Holy Spirit of God wanted Him to be tempted in all points. Now the Holy Spirit lives inside of the true believers. Yes, ‘greater is He that is in you’, but some push this too far. We hear many preachers today yelling and screaming that Satan is under their feet, but where do they get that?
“The God of peace will SOON CRUSH SATAN under your FEET. The grace of our Lord Jesus be with you.” (Romans 16:20 ESV) The scripture says that soon Jesus will crush him under their feet. But has that day came yet? If he was clearly under your feet, then why would Peter warn us to stay on alert, “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary THE DEVIL, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may DEVOUR.” (1 Peter 5:8 KJV)
Peter went on to say, “Therefore, as a fellow elder and a witness of the sufferings of Messiah, and also a sharer of the esteem that is to be revealed, I appeal to the elders among you: Shepherd the flock of Elohim which is among you, serving as overseers, not by compulsion but voluntarily, not out of GREED for filthy gain, but eagerly, neither as being MASTERS over those entrusted to you, but being examples to the flock. (1 peter 5:1-3 ISR)
Many sing songs about Satan being under their feet and even sing hymns to Satan. This particular song and I quote says, “I went to the enemies camp and I took back what he stole from me. He’s under my feet.” Now, the story they sing of is one where King David and his men find that the Amalekites had invaded Ziklag, burned it and had taken their women and children captive. David’s men were so troubled they were ready to stone their king. King David does in fact recover everything the enemy took from him in Ziklag, but let us look closely at how he did it. The scriptures tell us that David ENCOURAGED HIMSELF IN THE LORD.
“And David enquired at the LORD, saying, Shall I pursue after this troop? Shall I overtake them? And he answered him, Pursue: for thou shalt surely overtake them, and without fail recover all.” (1 Samuel 30:8 KJV)
David used wisdom. He asked God if he should pursue the troops and go and retrieve his belongings! I am not sure that sunk in; you see he didn’t get haughty and proud and say, ‘Well I am going to the enemy’s camp and Satan you are a liar and a thief and I am taking back what’s mine.’ No, He said, ‘God, should I pursue them and recover our belongings?’ OH, THERE IS WISDOM THERE IF YOU WILL PONDER IT!
Did ha-Satan (The accuser) point out Job to God when he walked into God’s throne room? No, God said, “HAVE YOU CONSIDERED MY SERVANT JOB?”(Job 1:8 KJV) Did Satan steal from Job anything that God did not allow? “And the Lord said unto Satan, Behold all that he (Job) hath is in thy power only upon himself put not forth thine hand.” (Job 1:12 KJV) Did Job put Satan under his feet and take back what he stole from him? Did Job talk to Satan and curse him? No, he REPENTED and PRAYED for his FRIENDS and then the Lord RESTORED HIS HEALTH AND HIS FAMILY.
I have heard ministers say that Job opened a door and tore a place in the hedge of protection that God had placed around him. They say it was fear. They use the scripture found in chapter 3, verse 25, “For the thing that I greatly feared is come upon me.” They say that Job by letting fear in, made a gap in the hedge of protection, but when we read the whole chapter we can clearly see Job is talking about death.
So let’s back up before we ponder that famous verse and start with verses twenty and twenty one of chapter three. These two verses talk about how light is given to him who longs for death, it goes on to say, “Which rejoice exceedingly, and are glad, when they can find the grave? Why is light given to a man whose way is hid, and whom God hath hedged in?”(Job 3:22-23 KJV) See, Job is still hedged in, he is just longing for death and fearing he will not find darkness and escape, but will only find light. His fear is he will not die but continue suffering! He didn’t sin as some have said by fearing and not trusting in God, no it says he was perfect and upright and feared God.
The Bible says something else about Job that many Christians have overlooked. It says that all Job’s brothers and sisters and acquaintances came and ate bread with him and comforted him, “Over ALL THE EVIL that THE LORD had brought upon him.” (Job 42:11 KJV)
I was at a church recently where they sang, “Satan the blood of Jesus is Against You”. The whole church lifted their voices in unison and yet I wasn’t aware we were supposed to speak to Satan or against Satan, let alone sing to him. Now I love this church and its people. They are some of the best people I have ever met, but as they sang the Holy Spirit spoke to me about this song. We find nowhere in the New Testament of a believer other than the Son of God talking to Satan or praying to him. And even Yeshua/Jesus only answers him with the Word, “Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written.” (Matthew 4:10 KJV)
We however, do see Paul speak about how Satan prevented them from coming sooner to a destination; we also hear him speaking to the church to turn certain ones over to Satan so that they may be saved in the last days. “Wherefore we would have come unto you, even I Paul, once and again; but Satan hindered us.” (1 Thessalonians 2:18 KJV) But we don’t see any scripture where an apostle or disciple is screaming and yelling at Satan and commanding him to obey them.
In Matthew chapter 4, that famous chapter where Jesus is tempted in all points, each lustful desire was brought forth before Him just like our own earthly flesh is tempted daily. If you have ever fasted for forty days, let alone one day you will get hungry. I am sure His flesh man, because yes he was God and flesh, wanted some bread! “Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil. And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights, he was afterward an hungred. And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread.” (Matthew 4:1-2 KJV)
The tempter came. You can call him Satan or ha-Satan or the devil, regardless of what you call him, THE HOLY SPIRIT SENT HIM, LED HIM EVEN.
When Paul says, “Deliver such a one unto Satan for the destruction of the flesh that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus.” (I Corinthians 5:5 KJV) He does not mean literally knock on a red tailed, horned, evil being’s door and say, “Hey, it’s me Paul, I got a live one for ya!” We have taken the scriptures too literally. We have not read them in order or to completion.
I believe this type of teaching in the charismatic church today is one type of ‘doctrine of devils’ and I will show you with God’s word why I believe we need a wake-up call. The men and women in the Bible didn’t converse with Satan. We don’t read about them binding Satan anywhere in scripture and yet many a man in front of a pulpit today will speak those very words rather haughtily. What does the word of God say about this?
“Likewise also these filthy dreamers defile the flesh, despise dominion, and speak evil of dignities. Yet Michael the ARCHANGEL, when contending with the DEVIL he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, THE LORD REBUKE THEE. But these SPEAK EVIL of those things which they KNOW NOT: but what they know naturally, as brute beasts, in those things they corrupt themselves” (Jude 1:8-10 KJV). Are many of us speaking things we have no knowledge about? DO YOU DESPISE DOMINION?
The body of Moses wasn’t his literal body, it wasn’t his flesh man. Think about this for a moment, who was Moses’ body? He brought the whole ‘Body of ISRAEL’ out of Egypt. We go to church buildings and we say the body of Christ, well, this was the body of Moses.
Peter has this to say about them, “But chiefly them that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise government. Presumptuous are they, self-willed, they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities. Whereas ANGELS, which are GREATER in POWER and might bring not railing accusation against them before the Lord. But these as natural brute beasts, made to be taken and destroyed, speak EVIL of the THINGS THAT THEY UNDERSTAND NOT; and shall utterly perish in their own corruption.” (2 Peter 2:10 KJV) Dignities are defined as angels, or lofty spiritual beings placed in high ranking orders. Some of the scriptures like the one above I will repeat and go into more detail on in a later chapter.
Yes, Jesus rebuked the spirits, and we have power to as well, but should we be talking to Satan, singing to Satan, or yelling at Satan? Angels bring no accusations to those principalities and powers; so according to this scripture, neither should we. So why do many in the church say “Satan, you must bow, we take authority over you.” Or, “Satan, you can’t have my children or my family members.”
Ever think about Satan on a deeper level? Have you ever noticed he is our adversary, but doesn’t God use him? Have you ever wanted to know your enemy? According to scripture Satan walks right into God’s throne room and they converse together. Satan isn’t red with scales and horns and a pitch fork, no, that is what men in ignorance portray him to be. I LONG FOR HIS BODY TO OPEN THEIR EYES AND LOOK AT SATAN AND GOD WITH A NEW LIGHT!
The Bible says my people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. LACK OF KNOWING HIM. It is time for the church and I mean the whole body to wake up, start reading their Bibles, stop listening to every wind of doctrine blowing through, and learn the TRUTH, because the truth will set you free. We must get back to our Hebrew roots and learn what the text means. I speak this in love, because the days are evil and the time is at hand. It is almost midnight. We must wake up. “They also that erred in spirit shall come to understanding, and they that murmured shall learn doctrine.” (Isaiah 29:24 KJV)
