Can You Spot A Spiritual Wolf?

Act 20:26-29  Wherefore I take you to record this day, that I am pure from the blood of all men. 
:27  For I have not shunned to declare unto you all the counsel of God. 
:28  Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood. 
:29  For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock

 

Can you spot the wolf?  Paul had been in Ephesus for three years.  Now it is time for him to leave.  He knows that he will not see them ever again.  He warns them that as soon as he leaves that grievous wolves will enter and not spare the flock.

Paul taught for three years, teaching, preaching, prophesying, and praying over the church at Ephesus, knowing that people would arise from without and within to draw disciples away from the faith.  Just as they faced false teachers and wolves so it is with us in this current age.

There are three wolves which seeks to infiltrate the Church of Jesus Christ,  The wolves are the wolf of finances, wolf of sex, and the wolf of entertainment!

Financial Wolf - This wolf comes into the church wanting to start a pyramid scheme i.e., coffee, Amway, or special vitamins, etc.  Now, many who start this pyramid are the pastors of the church, of course he is at top of the pyramid. 

Some wolves have special water from a well that God showed them where to drill and now bottle or package this now blessed water.  For a donation you can receive this water and by faith receive your miracle! 

Some Pastors-Prophets when altar time comes to the service, they form lines according to the amount of money that a person has.  They will receive a prophecy from the minister based on the level of their offering!  If you don't have money to put in the wolf's hand, then keep your seat, God has nothing for you!    Well, can you spot a spiritual wolf?

2Peter 2:3  And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.

 

Sexual Wolf -  This wolf wants to entangle you in sexual sins.  This wolf or wolfette, comes into the church hunting sex.  This wolf will become anything you want to get close to you to seduce.  It has no intention of marrying or having a Godly relationship.  Church is just a place where it hunts its prey.  Or, this wolf comes into the church to moleste children or youth.  The wolf will work its way into the youth class as a teacher or chaperone for special trips.  You know the rest of the story!  Well, can you spot a spiritual wolf, yet?  Let's do one more.   

1Cornithians 6:18  Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body. 

 

Entertainment Wolf -  This wolf wants to ensnare you in the demonic world of entertainment.  The remake of the movie "IT" has recently been released!  This movie is about a demonic clown that ties a red balloon at the sewer openings to lure children into the sewers so IT can eat its victims.  When Christians open their minds and hearts to this movie, demons of fear are sown into the minds and hearts of children, youth, and adults.  The Sunday I ministered this sermon, no less than fifteen persons came to the front of the church for deliverance from a spirit of fear.  Parents knew not to let their children go to these movies, but because of peer pressure, demonized children comes home.  Can you spot a spiritual wolf, yet?  

Psa 51:10  Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me. 

 

God has given me a great responsibility to lead as many sheep that I can to the heavenly pasture.  My advise is the same that Paul gave to the Ephesian church.

 

1Pe 5:8  Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:

But My Chains Aren't God - By Henry Shaffer

 

But My Chains Aren't Gone - Anxiety!

As I was having a conversation this week with a mother who said, I need to bring my daughter for prayer.  She said that her daughter asked her about a song they sing in church, why do we sing the song "My Chains are Gone"?  She said mom my chains aren't gone, I'm not free, my chains aren't gone!

God started to download a message to me about the title of this blog.  Let's consider the scriptures about being in bondage.  As Jesus was talking to those who believed on him, He said,

John 8:32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

:33 They answered him, We be Abraham's seed, and were never in bondage to any man: how sayest thou, Ye shall be made free?

:34 Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin.

:35 And the servant abideth not in the house for ever: but the Son abideth ever.

:36 If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.

Look at what they said in vs 33, we have never been in bondage!  They had been in Egyptian bondage for over 400 years, and while they were making that statement, they were under Roman bondage as well.

The lesson is, while singing the songs of freedom, many raise their hands in bondage to many besetting issues, one particularly is Anxiety.  This condition comes upon many of God's people at different times in their lives.

Much medication is given by medical professionals to counteract this condition and is helpful.   I have found out that through ministry that anxiety can be caused by a spirit, just like fear can be caused by a spirit.  Many quote the scripture in fearful times, God has not given me a spirit of fear, but all along they know they aren't free from fear or anxitey.

Christians, believers in Jesus, just like our text, would say, I've never been in bondage to any spirit, but all along you know you are!  I have the remendy, deliverance from this tormenting spirit.

Let's move towards freedom,  say this out loud, "You hear me, you spirit of Anxiety, I break any generational curse of anxiety over me, I go back to the root of this curse, and I command this spirit of anxiey to turn me loose and come out of me, now, and go to the pit!  You hear me In the Name of Jesus turn me loose and come out now, you are an invader and a trespasser, come out now in the Name of Jesus Christ"

Watch this video and see what God does, He can do it for you as well.  Your chains can be gone, in the name of Jesus!  Praise God!

What's Holding You Captive?


 

What’s Holding you Captive?

 

 

           What is the devil using to hold you captive?  Perhaps the sins you committed before you came to Jesus, maybe there was physical or emotional abuse in your past, or even sexual abuse, maybe even drug or alcohol abuse?  Recently while ministering to a deliverance candidate, we encountered these horrible “symptoms” within the human experience.  Our candidate, a delightful young lady, had succumb to the lies of the devil in these areas.  This young lady was under the direct bondage of these “symptoms”.  While she was dealing with spirits of regret, torment, sexual abuse, shame, guilt, drug and alcohol addiction, emotional and physical trauma, she knew where her HOPE is found…. His name is Jesus!!

Luke 4:18-19  “The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, Because He has anointed Me

To preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted,

To proclaim liberty to the captives And recovery of sight to the blind,

To set at liberty those who are oppressed; To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord.”

        Through the process of deliverance, the Lord is able to remove these “symptoms” from your life, first spiritually then the physical will follow!  The Bible never says our time on this earth will be easy.  However, Jesus DID come to set you free.  If you need assistance in any way, someone to lead you through deliverance to break the chains the devil has on you, please don’t wait, YOU DON’T HAVE TO LIVE THIS WAY ANY LONGER!

 

God Bless You,

The Battle is not Yours It's the LORD'S


The story of David facing Goliath is an inspiration to all of us who are facing a Giant in our life!

A great battle between a believer in the God of Israel, and a giant who trusted in the gods of the Philistines, shows us, if we learn the lesson that David learned, we can face any obstacle in our life.

The lesson he learned was "the battle is LORD's".  David put a smooth stone in his sling and hit Goliath in the forehead, knocking him to the ground, thus using Goliath's own sword to behead him! 

Life's Lesson:  The giant represents the Devil, David represents our savior Jesus Christ.  Jesus defeated the devil on the cross at Calvary.  With our faith and belief in Jesus Christ, we can face any thing the Devil puts before us, because Jesus fights for us.

The battle is the Lord's, not ours.  We must fight, but Jesus gives us His strength and ensures the victory is ours.

If you are facing the giant of finances, health, looking for a job, divorce, emotional issues, overcoming alcohol, lust, anger, or unforgiveness, remember that Jesus will help you and me defeat any giant we face.  Look to Jesus and praise Him in the midst of the battle.  When the devil says you won't win remember this: 

Samuel 17:46 This day will the LORD deliver thee into mine hand; and I will smite thee, and take thine head from thee; and I will give the carcases of the host of the Philistines this day unto the fowls of the air, and to the wild beasts of the earth; that all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel.

Samuel 17:47 And all this assembly shall know that the LORD saveth not with sword and spear: for the battle is the LORD'S, and he will give you into our hands.

One of the greatest lessons to learn is the Battle is the LORD’s!

Walk in victory today and be blessed!

Where Is The Power

Where's The Power??

Image result for pictures of miracles

 

               Could it be that folks are leaving or not coming to Christ because the church has lost its power?  What separates us from the other religions and even the world? 

Jesus said in Matthew 28:18  “And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.”  Then He also said in Luke 10:19   “Behold, I have given you authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall hurt you.”  Jesus came to set the captives free, we all know and believe this. But, set us free from what?....  Only from hell, are we just destined to live a miserable live here on this earth until that glorious day that He calls us home? NO! He gave us all an assignment, Mark 16:17-18 “And these signs will accompany those who believe: in my name they will cast out demons; they will speak in new tongues; they will pick up serpents with their hands; and if they drink any deadly poison, it will not hurt them; they will lay their hands on the sick, and they will recover.” 

So, maybe it's time to get back to basics and do what Jesus asked us to do. When we the church will allow the power of God to flow freely, we’ll then truly see the captives at liberty, blind eyes and deaf ears opened, the lame walking, all these things through the mighty Holy Spirit in Jesus name!

 

Mark 16:20  “And they went out and preached everywhere, while the Lord worked with them and confirmed the message by accompanying signs.”
