prayer

Are you tired of political rantings? There is an secret effect mentioned by the bible not often talked about.

ARE YOU TIRED OF POLITICAL RANTINGS ON FACEBOOK?
I prayed about it and I believe God gave me some wisdom about it. read on if you want to hear what i believe God taught me about it.

I am tired of the negative things posted too and I have been a part of the problem. I am not saying
they are wrong, just exhausting sometimes. I believe they are making a lot of us feel bad and not leading to a solution. Focusing on lawlessness has an effect. “Because lawlessness is increased, most people’s love will grow cold.” matt 24:12

An outraged “Christ” -ian can not effect change as fast as a outraged “Christ” -ian exercising their faith.
If christians spent as much energy in prayer exercising faith for change as we have in exercising our outrage we would have change pretty quickly.

 

We christians should believe God for the change we want. When is the last time you prayed about your government or the bad changes we see in society? Paul said it was the thing to address “first of all” when you pray.  (1 tim 2:1, 2:2) Bullets and guns were secondary to faith when the United States created a new nation. “Unless God builds a house they labor in vain that build it”. In six days God beat all the enemies of Israel when they were attacked for creating their nation. God builds nations, not bullets. He works through the faith  doors we open for him to work with. Evil powers work the same way.
When the words of christians complaining outnumber the words of faith based prayer, no change occurs. The complaint can become just part of the process of causing more of bad changes we do not want. Faith opens doors both for good or for bad.
(If you don’t believe God answers prayer then the rest of this post is not for you, scroll on.)
I remember praying that if the Obama administration was really doing some of the bad things that all the scandals would come out one after another. I believed God to show me if “something was up” the news would broadcast multiple scandals and if not I would hear nothing about it. Right after that I heard about the IRS thing, and about 4 others right in a row. Did God answer my prayer? I believe he did. What just some guy out there could change what happened with the president? Silly you say? Would God do something like this for a normal person like me or you?
“Elijah was a man with a nature similar to ours, and he earnestly prayed that there might be no rain: and no rain fell on the land for three years and six months. James 5:17” This means YOU can effect change, not just gripe about the problem. YOU! Pray twice as much as you post and the world will change.
God’s superstars are not broadcasted on TV. The world doesn’t value them. Anyone with just a grain of faith is Gods heroes.
Am I nuts to think God answered my prayer? Unless you have “faith like a little child” your likely to say yes. I prayed the brickyard across from my house would be removed, in about two weeks it was. I believe we are in the kingdom of God right now, not later after we die. We exercise Christ like universe reigning authority now, by our faith. WE are fellow heirs. Part of him. We have his authority here.
It doesn’t matter what any other party or government wants if the government of Christ gets involved. You are that government. You are that political party. You open or close doors for evil or for good. You are part of christ and his designated authority on the earth. Whatever door you open on earth is open in heaven, Whatever door you close on earth is closed in heaven for good or evil. God gave the earth to man. Your beliefs open heavens ability to cause change here. (for good or bad)

Nothing can happen on earth unless its granted from heaven. (john 3:27) (for good or bad) Spiritual values and powers rule this world and men. (daniel 4:26) There are both good and evil principalities but THEY ALL HAVE TO HAVE A MAN LIKE YOU TO OPEN OR CLOSE THE DOORS FOR THEM. You are the legal authority here. God wants out faith to open doors for him to work. “to stand in the gap”. God needs your faith to act here, but so do evil powers. The fact that the powers or the heavens are limited to working through men is in many verses. Here is one.

“And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none. Ezekiel 22 30”
Since what you believe for opens or closes doors let me ask. Are you believing for Gods best here or resigned that its all hopeless? The father of our faith believed against all hope. (romans 4:18)  Your faith is working either way for good or for evil. Can you see why “taking EVERY thought captive” is so important? (1 COR 10:5)  An idle thought mixed with your belief is an open or closed door. Knowing this we see It’s important for the destructive powers that they force christians eyes toward “pharaohs army” rather than a “just a man man with a stick in his hand.” My point is we should pray much much more than we complain. In reality Christ owns everything and is above every authority and If your a believer you are the representatives of that authority on the earth. Christ governs the world though christians. We need to belive  God has “got this, he can handle it.  He just needs some faith to work with, someone to stand in the gap.
Where is your faith? What doors have you opened? Our hope is in heaven and he said when we see these things coming to “look up”. Where are you looking. Do the chariots of the pharaohs scare you? How many Chariot pictures have you posted? Are you scared?

OH NO LOOK AT THIS ONE!

OH NO LOO AT THIS ONE!

 

Outrage has its place, fear does not.  Outrage should motivate our prayers not become a end in itself.
Have you forgotten about that little man over there with the stick?
It is christians that hold the nations destiny not powers that you see.
“if my people, who are called by my name, humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. 2 chronicles 7:14

However I still expect to see lots of posts concerning the “current pharaohs chariots”. However let them motivate you to check out the regular guy holding a stick talking about deliverance and not destruction. Please consider this. You open the doors, open good ones.
Re post, share  if you agree so it will get around, we need hope more than ever now if just a few doors open to Gods power everything can change.  Sharing can make that happen.

Believing has benefits!

How to get your prayers answered instantly

Jesus says “when you pray believe that you HAVE all ready received it. If you have all ready received it there is no room for despair or worry because you have it. You believe Jesus words, trust him and you have it in your heart and consider it a done deal. You have received it by faith. You give Gods word and his work through Christ glory or weight by doing this. That Glory you have given God is the substance of your future answer. It is the seed. Confidence in God’s word is something God will support. However the thief and the “birds of the air” are coming to steal it, and they are coming for it right away.
If you have anxiety worry or despair it’s because you do not yet have it because you did not believe you received when you asked, or you doubted, or the devil gave you a good reason to believe that you didn’t have it and might not get it. Once the faith is gone there is no substance since “faith is the substance of things hoped for” No seed, no blade, no stalk, no corn. Your prayer answer was eaten by the birds when it was a seed

I often have taken things by faith and had the devil try to talk me out of it, I say well if I all ready have it its a done deal, the questioning part is over. My name is Tim, waters wet, fire is hot, and i all ready (past tense) received it. Too late Mr devil, done deal, done deal.

The devil wants your substance. Once he has it it is gone, stolen. You have taken the glory you gave to God and his work in Jesus Christ and given that glory or weight over to the devil. You moved your faith over to your doubt and out of the glory or weight you gave God. Since he meets our needs according to “his riches in glory through Christ Jesus” you need to keep the glory or weight in Christ Jesus.The devil is fighting you to transfer the glory to him through doubts and questioning.

We need to imitate God. Baby eagles soon fly and catch fish, Fish soon swim and breath underwater. Like father like son. Act like God does, imitate, imitate, imitate. Speak to the mountain. Speak to the fig tree. Speak to the disease.
“like dear children imitate your father in heaven”

“God who calls those things which are not as though they were.”

“this is the confidence we have in him, if we ask anything according to his will he hears us,”

(no GOOD thing will he withhold from them that walks uprightly)

( as in he that finds a wife/husband finds a GOOD thing- proverbs)

“and we know that if he hears us we HAVE the requests which we have made of him”

Remember when the disciples asked for more faith, Jesus told them the parable of the servant that comes in from the field. He said if you have your servant come in from the field do you say hey go eat, or do you have the person working for you, on the clock, fix you food first and then tell him he can eat.
The idea here is to give God glory first, then God will let you eat. When you plant the seed in the kingdom of God don’t go back and dig it up. Keep the weight on God completely don’t ever give any weight to the doubts. Don’t even question that you received it. You TAKE IT by faith. Give god more faith than you do united parcel service or the post office.

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..
