Making Connections III: Ties to Lucifer (Pastor Charles Lawson)

John Haller’s Prophecy Update “Things My Father Taught Me” June 18th, 2017

Great Endings 

 

Don’t you love great endings?  Even when you have sat through a nail biting,  edge of your seat, heart pounding suspenseful thriller.  You know the ones, where you find yourself saying  “NO..DON’T DO IT!  DON’T GO IN THERE!”  They always go anyway and you knew they would. I don’t watch much these days because they are full of garbage but, I still remember the feelings that a good movie stirs up inside of you.   It is all about the ending.   Have you watched a movie that was on track with all the emotions and then the end either leaves you just hanging out to dry without intension of a sequel OR it just ends in such a way that you find yourself throughly depressed.   You end up feeling like you just totally wasted all of that time not to mention emotion that you invested in it.  (Spoiler alert….you did waste time and emotion…moving on.)

Now, think about the one that ends in a way that just blows your mind!  You would happily go through the stressful scenes again in order to achieve the high from the terrific stand up and cheer ending!

Ladies and gentlemen that is where we are approaching.  I don’t know how much time we have left but we are closer to the end every single day.  If you have read the book then you know how it ends.  In one way it differs from the movies we watch because this time we get to choose what ending we want.  Choose life!

Even so come Lord Jesus come!

 

Revelation 22:20-21
He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.

THE END.

Another Jesus, Spirit, Gospel (Pastor Charles Lawson)

Powerful!   This gave me a renewed passion to pray for those I love so dearly that are lost.   God works in amazing ways!  

Seeking to Listen and Understand and Obey 

Ezekiel 2:1-2
And he said unto me, Son of man, stand upon thy feet, and I will speak unto thee.  And the spirit entered into me when he spake unto me, and set me upon my feet, that I heard him that spake unto me.

Commentary 
When he was called to be a prophet, Ezekiel has a vision of the “likeness of the glory of the Lord”. This completely drains his strength and he falls facedown. Then the Lord speaks to Him this verse, and as it is being spoken, Ezekiel is provided the strength to stand and hear the word of the Lord. In Christ we are granted the Holy Spirit, and rest assured that there is real power and strength that comes with His residence within us. He is able to strengthen, to counsel, to teach and to convict us. With the Spirit of God living in us, we are able to be ambassadors for Christ, messengers of the gospel, bearers of the living water that is found only in Jesus.

Sandra Solomon: From Islam to Christ (Palestinian Ex-Muslim Testimony)

Beautiful testimony. ..moving from darkness to the light.  The true light.  Not a light that can be blown out but a light that will shine brightly wherever it goes!  Jesus Christ still lives!  He is still coming to all to seek Him, to all who cry out to Him, to any who hear Him knocking on their hearts !  He loves you and wants to come in.  You have to ask Him, you have to open the door and don’t give up, keep seeking the only One who has the power to save!  God bless you all.  God is not finished yet!

I Need You – I Cannot Trust Even in my Own Heart

Jeremiah 17:9-10
The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it? I the Lord search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings
Psalm 33:13-15
The Lord looketh from heaven; he beholdeth all the sons of men.  From the place of his habitation he looketh upon all the inhabitants of the earth.  He fashioneth their hearts alike; he considereth all their works.


COMMENTARY —-Knowing our own hearts isn’t really our strong suit, though we often think that it is. In fact, there are those who take pride in the fact that they know themselves well, some even reject counsel because they conclude that others cannot possibly know them well enough to give sound advice. Apart from God, we cannot possibly know our own hearts well enough to make choices that reflect our faith. Part of the process is learning how to accept that He knows better, will always know better, and to trust Him completely. If we are willing to face that Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life, our challenge becomes surrender. We are met with forgiveness, and empowered by grace to see our world differently, and cast aside the idols of our heart. Life cannot be more than when Jesus, the Master, is at the helm.

Justice 

Luke 18:1-8
And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint;  Saying, There was in a city a judge, which feared not God, neither regarded man:  And there was a widow in that city; and she came unto him, saying, Avenge me of mine adversary.  And he would not for a while: but afterward he said within himself, Though I fear not God, nor regard man;  Yet because this widow troubleth me, I will avenge her, lest by her continual coming she weary me.  And the Lord said, Hear what the unjust judge saith.  And shall not God avenge his own elect, which cry day and night unto him, though he bear long with them?  I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?

COMMENTARY 

Today we have a story of a judge who is “unjust”. The end of this parable finds the corrupt judge granting justice to a widow who simply would not stop bothering him. She does not find justice in her situation because the judge’s heart turns around, but because of her persistence. The question on the table is: Do you believe that God will give you justice? This passage promises that God gives justice to “his chosen ones, who cry out to him day and night”, and that he will do it quickly. Are you willing to believe that today and live in a way that reflects that you trust God completely with justice? When we are hurt or wronged, and wish to seek retribution – we either take matters into our own hands, or we release matters into God’s. Let Him take the lead on justice, and allow Him to work forgiveness in your heart.

Middle-East Prophecy Update  January 22nd, 2017 Pastor JD Farag 

2017-Those Who Have Ears to Hear and Eyes to See…

​Isaiah 42:5-9

Thus saith God the Lord,

He that created the heavens, and stretched them out;

He that spread forth the earth, and that which cometh out of it;

He that giveth breath unto the people upon it,

And spirit to them that walk therein:

I the Lord have called thee in righteousness,

And will hold thine hand, and will keep thee,

And give thee for a covenant of the people, for a light of the Gentiles;

To open the blind eyes,

To bring out the prisoners from the prison,

And them that sit in darkness out of the prison house.

I am the Lord: that is my name:

And my glory will I not give to another,

Neither my praise to graven images.

Behold, the former things are come to pass,

And new things do I declare:

Before they spring forth I tell you of them.
