Gods testimonies

theres something there to steal

I was praying about something and afterwards as I was beliveing for it I was harassed. I would just be sitting there and thoughts would come like “thats not going to happen”. They kept comming and comming. I was annoyed I finnaly asked God why am I getting thoughts like this so persistently. God said becasue “theres something there to steal”. When we pray and believe God its GOING to happen. The unseen rascals that rule this world go to work to steal what is about to happen while its still a seed. The reason they are harrasing you is because there is something REAL there to steal. If satans harrasing you about a prayer you prayed, or weather or not your saved, or if God loves you, or telling you your kids are going to go bad or whatever its because there is something there to steal. All he needs to do to steal it is have you agree with him about it and thats it, its stolen.

to clean the heart

from the Aramaic,
Truly the faith of God in you let be If you believe in your heart -if your heart becomes divided not the thing you say will happen.

The thing the knowledge of Good and Evil did to us is make for a double hearted person. This effectively cuts us off from Gods help because we can never believe. The bible says the god of this world blinds the mind of those who do not believe. Jesus says our FAITH makes us whole. The Bible said he made one man out of the two. To be one person again instead of two. It says that a heart is repaired by mercy truth and love. Once again we see righteousness in first place in the form of mercy. Seek first the kingdom of God and righteousness. The kingdom of God is the kingdom of the air. Currently it is ruled by the devil. That kingdom of the air is your inner self. All those thoughts images and beliefs, thats the kingdom. So its saying get that cleaned up first. Rightousness leads us to the cross. Unless you eat my flesh and drink my blood you have no life in you. So to repair the heart your right standing with God because of Jesus sacrifice is first. With the heart you believe unto righteousness. You can tell if your doing this right for certain because you WILL have peace. The effect of righteousness is peace. And the work of righteousness is quietness and assurance for ever. If you think this is in error your arguing not with me but with the bible. You can prove it to yourself by taking a scripture that says your righteous by faith alone and meditate (meditate in the Hebrew means “chew the cud”) on it until you believe it. As you do things that go against that verse will come up but cut those ideas down by giving more weight to the word. You can use truth and love to give the word weight. When you actually believe it you will experience this crazy amazing peace. You will know if you have done it right. You must get that righteousness first. Jesus said unless you are will for me to wash away your moral guilt you can no part of me. Then truth which is the word. You have to have that in you so you can be cleaned up. He cleans up the heart through the washing of the water of the word. By these promises you might be partakers of the divine nature (or output).

The Cantaloupe of life. Living life form the inside out…

life fromthe inside out

I saw something uninteresting the other day. A physics professor said that when Jesus showed up to the disciples and just appeared that he was moving in the sixth dimension. Now I don’t pretend to know what that means but he said from the sixth dimension you could eat a orange from the inside out.

When I woke up this morning the lord showed me a Cantaloupe.

People eating a Cantaloupe from the outside in might sort of scratch the surface with their teeth and taste the bitter peel but only a few would bite down hard enough to get some sweet fruit. Even then it might be mixed with peel and make the fruit well, un apealing. (sorry bout the pun)

Anyway if you eat the fruit from the sixth dimension you could eat the fruit and skip the peel. Your perception of the peel would see it was nessesesary to care for the fruit but wasnt what the fruit was all about. Those on the outside eating the peel would think there is something wrong with this fruit. A few would find some sweet fruit but mixed with the peel not so tasty.

When we live Gods way, by faith we see present circumstances in their true form. We know that our faith will change them and we can eat the sweet right now. Ask and believe that you receive them and you shall have them. From the inside out. First clean the inside of the cup then the clean outside will matter.

So we use Gods utensils which is the word of God and eat the sweet now, by faith, int the “sixth dimension” I guess and we can eat the fruit from the inside out instead of trying to eat it peel first.

People who live just on the surface will every once in a while git a taste of love or peace, but never get much and will be mixed with bitterness. Those who live in the spirit will have there love full on knowing the external things of life are like the peel. Thats why faith is so important. If i say I love you but you never believe it you will never feel it. When Jesus says he loves us we need to believe it. Living from the inside out. Then the circumstances won’t matter. WE take it by faith and its ours. Soon the circumstances will align with it. The feelings will come. It develops like a seed and soon the plant is here.

Its like we are being taught about life from someone that lives in more dimensions. From his perscepctive he sees that every command of his leads to life. Every thing he says is true. His reality is comming ot take over ours. From our perspective we don’t see it yet. We are on the out side with only a few dimensions to reference. He sees it all. Thats why its important to listen to him, mixed with love and truth. Then we can see. Jesus it says did not take what he saw or what he heard or felt as truth. He saw truth as truth dispite what other evidence there was. When he spoke to the fig tree he believed it was withered. Only afterwards did the disciples see it. We have been given keys to this inside dimension that controls the outside dimensions. Its our faith.

prayer always fails…

saw a post on amazons forums saying prayer always fails. A bunch of people talking about how they never saw an answer to prayer and how they don’t belive in God anymore. I wanted to throw up. I wanted to toss over some temple tables. Mad

I had to answer here is my reply.

I had to post this since I saw a post in here saying prayer always fails… Sad
I have had so many answers to prayers I can not count them all. I decided I was through with what I had learned from church and asked God to teach me about prayer. I learned from what he said and chucked every thing else. I read just about every verse in the bible on prayer, ESPECIALLY what Jesus taught. He said the traditions of men make void the word of God so I wanted that cr&* out. Just what he said. It says that
if we call on him he will tell us great and mighty things which we know not. Anyway I found out I had to ask and not doubt. I knew I was a Christian and that either this was all true or it was bu*&%. The first thing I prayed for was a wife. It said ask whatsoever things I willed. So I prayed that I would get a wife 10 years younger than me, blond , blue eyed, a inch shorter than me and that she would like where I lived
and had a good family. I told him I did not want to see her in two years, not two months but in two weeks. Faith is being certain I said and not being wishy washy. After I did that I had tons of thoughts come at me, how it wouldn’t work, how it wasn’t right to pray that way etc. I just knocked them all down, I did my part I said , God WILL do his part. I was serious. If you sow serious you reap serious. Anyway
that week a blonde girl with blue eyes who was ten years younger than me a inch shorter than me with a nice family showed up at my house and at the end of the week she said she would marry me. Not two weeks but one. The next prayer answer I had was with a lady that lived in a house with 50 dogs in it. She never cleaned it and had no water power and gas. I asked God to do three things. 1. get rid of the dogs. 2. water power and gas on and 3. clean her house. I asked God to do it within two weeks.
next day she comes over and 9 dogs died that night of parvo. At 10 o clock the head law enforcement officer comes over and asks if he can remove the dogs. They arrested her for “dogs at large” and she put me in charge of the house. Then because she had 50 dogs in her house a story wa sin the paper. I have the article. Then because she got her name in the paper someone paid for her water power and gas. That was Friday. She was released on Friday but she had to clean up her house and the court had to inspect it. All in one week not two. Oh ya faith works. Faith can not NOt work. its spiritual law more solid than the laws of physics. All traditions of men have to go out the window and Just what Jesus says counts. The reason most don’t understand it is because they don’t have the holy spirits help and rely on their carnal brain. Jesus said what
measure you give to what he said would be measured back.The only way to understand the scripture is through Gods spirit of truth and love. Otherwise you comprehend it not. (the darkness comprehends it not)
I am 100 feet away from a new house we got in one day with prayer and about 50 feet from a car we got the next day in prayer. I wanted a ski machine, the lord told me to go to a thrift store and they had one on the side of a building. They said i could have it for free it worked fine. I have tons of these answers more than I can count!. I just got a profanity removing cable box the other day by prayer. God got me more than the money I was expecting on a real estate deal when the brokers pulled a dirty trick on me. I prayed and it all turned around. I have so many prayer answers its not funny. I can not believe people are saying prayer doesn’t work. what universe do they live in? Sorry I guess i got a little steamed after seeing that post. God is so great and kind when you get to know him, hes almost like a little kid in some ways. So humble and nice. A few weeks ago he told me he made tickle spots on people on purpose.
Its a design feature! it has to be. thats God, thats the way he thinks. The darkness used to blind my mind to him I used to think he was mean and scary. But tickle spots. He put tickle spots on people! Ladybugs! puppies! open your eyes people! anyway I guess I am just ranting now….So i will stop. (and the darkness comprehended it not)

I have a bunch more on my site thingsgodtaughtme.wordpress.com

Mark 11:24 (Amplified Bible)

24 For this reason I am telling you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe (trust

and be confident) that it is granted to you, and you will [get it].
Mark 11:24 (The Message) Have the faith of God Jesus says. God decides it is and it

is, he never backs up on it or wavers, we should not either because we are supposed to

be imitating God like dear children.

Psalms 82:6 “I said, ‘You are “gods” you are all sons of the Most High.’

22-25Jesus was matter-of-fact: “Embrace this God-life. Really embrace it, and nothing

will be too much for you. This mountain, for instance: Just say, ‘Go jump in the

lake’—no shuffling or shilly-shallying—and it’s as good as done. That’s why I urge you

to pray for absolutely everything, ranging from small to large. Include everything as

you embrace this God-life, and you’ll get God’s everything. And when you assume the

posture of prayer, remember that it’s not all asking. If you have anything against

someone, forgive—only then will your heavenly Father be inclined to also wipe your

slate clean of sins.”

I had to post this cause I saw a post in here about prayer not working. You must have done it wrong. Your in the image of God. If i had a kid that was throwing a fit and not acting right I would not give him what he was asking for. I would wait until he did it right. Since your in the image of God he wants you to act like him. he has serious unwavering faith. Its a being a good parent to wait until you get it right. In this world there are all kinds of spiritual principalities and power running around in the thought world telling you it just ain’t so. Well it is so. They are trying to talk you out of your faith, reason you out of it. Faith works period. Your reasonings as to why it doesn’t work is devil poop. Nothing more. Jesus says to him that overcomes.
Don’t be overcome of evil but overcome evil with good. Thats why that tree of the knowledge of good and evil was so bad for us. Always going between good and evil means no faith. No faith means no spiritual substance. Faith is the substance. Wavering is not rewarded. Its spiritual law like the law of gravity. God’s not going to break the law for you or anyone. Jesus is the high preist of OUR confession. Also if you have un- forgiveness which is a violation of the law of love you can forget it too.

I know I sound like a mad ranter by now but Yikes! I just had to..

The cuss-en-ator

television

I heard on a teaching tape with Gloria Copeland that they have this gizmo that removes cussing from tapes and cds. I asked God for one because in the message I read that I should “ask God for all things both big and small then I would have God’s everything.”

Anyway, later on that day my wife said she was going to the thrift shop and asked If I wanted to go. I said no, but the Lord said to go. So I went and then on the back shelf I found one of those gizmos called “curse free”. Works great! cost $2.50

The names of the first few people in the bible predict Christ

torah

The meanings of The names predict Christ.

Gen chapter 5,  ADAM (Human) SETH (established) Enosh (Mortal) Kenan (sorrow) Mahalalel (the blessed God) Jared (coming or shall come down) Enoch (Teacher or teaching) Methuselah (his death shall bring) lamech (despairing) Noah (rest).

 {Human established Mortal sorrow, the blessed God, shall come down teaching, his death shall bring (the) despairing rest}.

The bible is full of this amazing stuff.  

Want real insight into Gods character?

Just a quick note on something God told me one time.

I asked him to tell me what he was like.

He told me that to understand him better that he wanted me to deeply think about this…

He said,


I made tickle spots on people on purpose,


now think about that.

Have you ever tickled a child? Did you know that the lord God of all time space and dimension, the one that hung on a cross to die for your sins, the one they made that impressive cathedral for?

He had to purposely design tickle spots when he designed man. That little giggle your kiddos make when they get tickled is designed.

What kind of mind designs tickle spots into humans? Think about that for very long while that will do you some good. Next time your getting too religious think about that.

Its fun to see the reaction in our minds when we think of this truth. This worlds dark and small ideas about who God is gleefully crashes in a heap upon this rock solid solid happy truth.

Its nice to see that kind of God playfully peeking out from behind the religious image of God the world creates in our mind. Watch how quickly the mind tries to go back to the old religious image but don’t let it, Make it obey the truth in this. Stare intently at the mind of deity revealed in the tickle me Elmo carefully designed into each of us. Soon you will see something real and wonderful.

The Bright and Morning Star is still there.

jesus-the-morning-star.jpg

 I was looking at the sky in the early morning and saw the morning star. Its venus and its very bright against the black sky.

I was thinking about feelings. Somtimes in your walk with God your feelings are intense. Sometimes they are not. As I was thinking about this God said look out the window again. I looked and the sun was up the sky was a pale blue. I could not see the morning star anymore but I knew it was still there. A entire world blotted out. A min ago it was so clear. Gods word, Gods Love is like that. We can believe it even if we don’t see it. I remember when I was healed of asthma and after a few days I had a little wheeze. I could at that point look to the symptoms and belive I had asthma again. Instead I said in myself “by his stripes I was healed.” The next breath was perfectly clear. I know I can stand on the word even if symptoms and circumstances say different. The word can change my circumstances, my feelings.

I can look up at the sky in the daytime and even though I can not see the stars I know they are there.  I can’t see them in the day and if I could they really look small from here. In fact they are greater and larger than the earth on which I stand. The blue sky and the distance hide the truth about whats up there. Feelings and circumstances are like that when the word of God is concerned. God’s word rules the universe, but with so much other light around and from this perspective it sometimes looks small. Thats decieving. It actually caused everything to come into being. Its the very building blocks of matter. My feelings and circumstances seem bigger, brighter but in reality they are not. The word is bigger, brighter, permanant.  

Jesus said that when the storms came that the house that stood firm was based on a rock.  Feelings, circumstances are shifting sand.

Where did God go?

This is a little post for when you think God has left you or you don’t feel his presence. I had one of those times and God told he to “take out the trash”. So I did and as I was walking outside God said “look up”. He said “where are the stars and the moon?”

It was overcast and the clouds blocked the stars and moon.

I said “they are there but behind the clouds”.

He said “I am still here too”.

I thought that was nice. On a scriptural basis not feeling Gods presence or wondering where he is usually always comes down to us not walking in love. We have become offended, or sinned, both are express exits from God’s presence. Also when you are offend and walk out of love you stumble in the dark and don’t know what your stumbling over according to 1 John. At those times I usually go over a few truths. Like that God loves me as much as he does Jesus. (he does you know according to the bible). I remember verses like, we love him because he first loved us, we have come to know and believe the love which God has for us, etc. Then I go over some kind and loving things God has done for me and then make sure I haven’t become offended with my neighbor. If I have I repent and start loving that person. There is a good book about how the devil traps us and gets us out of the love walk. Its called the bait of Satan. It will help you avoid about 80% of what the devil throws at you.

Instant peace, a place of shelter, make the Devil dissapear! PARALYZED!

Mr freeze

Freeze the devil!

This is not going to make sense to most of you but to Christians undergoing trials it will really help. One of the most important things you can get is a handle on the righteousness that God gives. It is so important that God says to seek it first. It brings peace and a place of rest. The effect of righteousness is peace.

Isaiah 32:17 The work of righteousness will be peace; and the effect of righteousness, quietness and confidence forever.

SO since this is spiritual law lets make the law work for us. It also promises that those that receive the gift of righteousness and the abundance of grace will reign in life. Also it will take you out of religion directly into relationship.

Let me show you what Jesus showed me,

(yes, Jesus will show up and talk to you, John 14:21 He who has my commandments and obeys them (theres really only two) –he it is who loves me. And he who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I will love him and will clearly reveal myself to him.”)

I was on the porch and was having some troubles with el-diablo. If your a Christian you know what I am talking about, if not you will think I am nuts. Anyway Jesus shows up and shows me as I am having trouble with the devil how to make the devil disappear. I mean gone, like he does not even exist in my world. As I was being spiritually harassed He pointed out a little Chevron car, you know the one with the cute eyes.

frankie 4 wheeler

The car looked at me kind of menacingly if you can believe it. (God is fun by the way.) Anyway then he showed me kinda like a box in the sky, (I didn’t see it with my eyes but in the spirit) He said that’s my righteousness, the box. You never did anything to make it, its something that happened completely out of your control. Take it as your own. Let that box be your righteousness completely severed from anything you did or did not do. Let it answer any questions about your right standing with me. As I took it as mine, and believed it I saw the eyes of the chevron car turn from menacing to dead, like it was a dead stick. It then got very quiet and the spiritual harassment was gone! Then I let go of the righteousness box and the harassment started, and the car looked mean again. Put the box back on and the car went dead and instant peace. Wow. now that’s a gift. So if I keep this “box” I can make the devil go away, anytime I want to, then I walk in love and boom chucka-lucka boom…

 

No devil, hes gone, Nada, he doesn’t exist in my universe.

 

Jesus said it was because with his righteousness on the Devil has no legal right to me. Wow this works, now I know what it means when it says that Jesus disarmed the principalities and paralyzed them.

Colossians2:15 Having disarmed principalities and powers, He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them in it.

Taking Jesus righteousness as your own takes every weapon the devil has and makes him freeze! wow so now your still armed with your sword and your opponent has no weapons! Remember how God said when a man fully armed guards his house its safe till someone better armed comes. Well bless, God, with Jesus righteousness THEY are disarmed and you are still armed. Now in peace you can get everything back the devil stole from you and hes frozen off in the corner!

ice devil

True food, true drink!

Since God said seek ye first his kingdom and his righteousness it is super important and first means first, So it must be the way to start the whole Christian walk. Why war against a guy with weapons if you can disarm them first. Wow this makes the Christian walk a way easier. And the peace Wow, the peace. Its amazing!!!

Like a hot knife through butter

hot knife through butter

When you read the Bible you have to see it through the window of your heart. The Bible says a mans heart colors everything you see. Well your heart all ready has all kinds of stuff in it. Stuff from your past, stuff the devil sowed in it, fear, religous ideas. Well if you read the bible without care your prior experiences and other junk can color the word so that you don’t see it right.

In the wrong spirit the word that was meant to heal could hurt.

What to do? well the bible gives us the answer. “speaking the truth in love we might grow up into all things.” So we need the spirit of truth. That means is should be heavy, serious and the final say. But truth without love leads to wierd religious stuff. Truth without love is easily colored by fear. Fear is the basis of all kinds of religious junk and leads to little rules and hurt feelings. Your hidden fears backed up by a bible verse or two can change a life for the worse. Truth colored by love is what is needed. These two spiritual powerhouses make you “see” in your heart corectly. Like a hot knife through butter you will cut through all the junk in your heart . The Bible talks about having the eyes of your heart enlightened. Jesus talks about having a single eye, or light in you. Truth in love puts the bible in correct persective and puts the correct spiritual forces behind the word so that you can grow instead of be injured. The word of God read hap-hazerdly is dangerous. Be sure to have these powers out when you read the word. I often go over and over a promise till I get is set in truth and love. Rember God answers your prayers like this. He can do exceedingly abundant ly above all that you ask or think ACCORDING TO THE POWER THAT WORKS WITHIN YOU. I belive that power is the word and faith. Well if you can have anything you ask for if you don’t doubt (mark 11:24) You need some faith. Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word. Put some truth and love behind the word and get that heart in shape fast. (proverbs say with a dull axe much strength is needed) Truth in love puts a razor sharp edge to the word you read.

The true blueprint for youself

PEOPLE BLUEPRINT
PICTURE FROM http://www.marketplaceleaders.org/pages.asp?pageid=50730
I read in the message translation “self SACRIFICE is my way to finding your true self”. I also read “put off the old man and put on the new man created in the image of him who created it.”

The way this works in me is, well here is a example. Lets say my son Ben messed up my cd drive on my laptop (true story). Now my first reaction is to yell and be upset, saying things that make my boy upset as well. However since I have learned about Christ and his burden removing, yoke destroying power of God. So right away I “put on Christ” through faith. I draw from the vine. By trusting Christ right away in this little crisis I activate the “law of the spirit of life in Christ Jesus” that supercedes and inactivates the “law of the sin and death.” Kinda like how the law of lift on a airplane supercedes the law of gravity. About Christ it says “living in you as you trust in him”, so I am trusting, right now when I need it. What happens is I “tap into” Christ through that trust and am very calm with my boy. I explain to him how to use the cd rom, how he should call me to help if he has trouble. I don’t yell, no mean tones. Wow now thats living right. What a gift this is. No more evil me and I can be the kind of dad I always wanted to be. Not in my own strength but through the strength of trusting Christ. These are spiritual laws and they work just like the law of gravity or thermodynamics. Turns out that as I go with this that God wants me to live by trusting Christ all the time not just when I am in crisis. Christ becomes my self control and my wisdom. The Annointing has broken my “yoke”.

This goes along with abide in me and you will produce good fruit. I now also understand what Paul says when he says “I die daily”. He also said I am crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me, the life I live in the body I live by faith in the son of God, who loves me and gave himself for me. So now I can be a good person and no longer moved about by my flesh. Jesus said I have to give up my life to save it and if I cling to it I would lose it. So now I know what this means. “AS YOU RECEIVED CHRIST JESUS  SO WALK YE IN HIM.  It says to those that recieved him to them gave he power to become the sons of God even to those that believe in his name. So we have power to be able to be good, no longer just having to follow rules. (the law leads to death)

When I was in sunday school I was told a lot of stuff I could do adn stuff I couldn’t. I tried to play that game but found I would mess it up and do bad stuff anyway. Then later when I really wanted to know how this worked I read romans 6, 7, 8. I found out it wasn’t up to me to be good, but that I had help. I could trust Jesus to be good in me. That ended the frustration of trying to be good by myself. The power to be good is through trusting Christ

The kingdom of God is like a seed

seeds

Just like God spoke and said “let there be light”

he speaks into the world today with his word. His words fall like seed and those that value those words grow in direct relation to the weight or importance they give those words. So his words are sent out to create in our hearts. Those that grow and are green he keeps as good word containers. He knows he can get a return on his word with those good ones in whom produces fruit. Those that reject the word don’t know truth, the real truth. They think truth is some other spirit than the real spirit of truth so the seed never grows in them. There is a real spirit of truth and those that really love truth find it.

To sharpen those words we can use truth and love. Speaking the truth in love we can grow up into him. Read the hot knife through butter post above.

Why does God say hide in his shadow when he has none?

secret place of the most high

God has no shadow. Since God is light and in him is no darkness at all I was curious about how God could have a shadow, I asked God about this and what I got back was,

“what part of the Godhead casts a shadow?”

Well Jesus would be the only one who ever did. So if we are standing in Jesus shadow he covers us from Gods judgment and we abide under his wings. I always knew that the secret place was in Gods love, but the bible says “the love of God is in Christ Jesus,”. How are we in Christ Jesus? “He that eats my flesh and drinks my blood abides in me”. Once we accept Jesus as our righteousness we have peace. The effect of righteousness is peace. So he is the covering from Gods judgment and our peace. “I will keep him in a pavilion safe from the strife of tounges” What he says about us becomes the place where we hide, rather than what we think about us. The Safety and security that Jesus perfect performance purchased is then ours, and satan’s legal rights are void thanks to the blood. Once you believe this legally you should experience and are owed peace. This goes along with my post below entitled “how to make the devil disappear” At the very bottom you can see a link to previous posts, be sure to click on that.
