Hope Is Not Faith

faith hope charityHope is not faith.

Hope is a wish something may happen in the future where faith is a conviction and belief that it is already done.

If you keep on “waiting to see your healing” then you do not yet believe that it is already done, that Jesus already paid the price and that you are already healed.

1 Peter 2:24 …by whose stripes ye were healed. Continue reading Hope Is Not Faith

Why Worry?

RamIf God is your provider, why then would you ever worry?

Jehovah Jireh literally means “Jehovah will see to it” and it was the name Abraham called the place where God provided a ram as a sacrifice and as a substitute for his son Isaac.

And Abraham called the name of that place Jehovahjireh: as it is said to this day, In the mount of the Lord it shall be seen.  Genesis 22:14

Young Isaac questioned his father Abraham: “Behold the fire and the wood: but where is the lamb for a burnt offering?” Abraham answered: “My son, God will provide himself a lamb for a burnt offering.” (Genesis 22:7-8) Continue reading Why Worry?

Unforgiveness

Foregiveness Giift“Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath:”  Eph 4:26

As you can see here, it is OK to be angry.   But it is not OK to let your anger boil over into sin such as revenge, harboring resentment or even holding a grudge.

We are to forgive and preferably soon and definitely before the sun goes down.

Many people live with unforgiveness and carry this around their neck as a ten ton weight upon their shoulders.  They are convinced that the other person must first repent and then come and ask them for their forgiveness before they will even consider forgiving them.  This is not biblical at all.  Continue reading Unforgiveness

Afraid and Confused?

anxious for nothingAfraid?  Anxious? Confused?  Depressed?

These are all lies from the enemy.  Perfect love casts out all fear.

There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.  1 John 4:18

You must be doing something righteous to be upsetting and scaring the enemy out of his skin.  Continue reading Afraid and Confused?

Jesus The Worm

Kermes_echinatus_Balachowsky_first-instar_nymph_-_ZooKeys-246-011-g006.jpegBut I am a worm, and no man; a reproach of men, and despised of the people.  Psalms 22:6

This of course is prophetic of Jesus hanging on the cross being despised and rejected of men.

The word worm is the Hebrew word “tôlâ” which means:                        Continue reading Jesus The Worm

The Gift and Power of Tongues

DoveWhy would I want to refuse a gift that Jesus gave when He ascended on high and gave gifts unto men (Ephesians 4:8)?  Tongues was given at Pentecost and is a secure private channel that no enemy, devil, demon or even the NSA, can tap in to.

Ever wondered why you got the exact opposite of what you prayed for?

Well, if you use English, the enemy hears every word and tries to counter your moves.  When you use tongues, he cannot hear or understand or intercept a thing and your prayers are heard and your plans not thwarted.

I see more movement from prayers in tongues than anything else.  John G Lake said that tongues was the making of his ministry.  Who am I to argue?

The Power of Psalm 91

Angel Franz_von_StuckHere is a testimony from a brother warrior on the front lines ministering healing and discipling believers in India.   The English is a bit off but I did not want to change or correct it so you would have the whole spirit of the message.

Psalm 91 is a powerful psalm as earlier testified to here. Read it…memorize it…walk in it.  It is God’s personal written promise to you of His divine protection and sure deliverance.

Enjoy!

Humor – Why It Pays To Study Your Bible

Most believers think that they know what the bible says.  After all, their pastor told them so, right?  Very few will actually take the time and the effort to seek the Holy Spirit’s guidance to interpret the original and actual message in the scripture for themselves.

Try the free Greek/Hebrew interlinear Bible software at scripture4all.org to dig into the original texts and see for yourself.

Here’s a funny little anecdote to prove the point…     Enjoy! Continue reading Humor – Why It Pays To Study Your Bible

The End Of Judaism

torahSome people believe that Judaism still exists.

They know people who call themselves Jews and who say that they are Jewish, claiming that they are some part of Judaism.

They do not realize that Judaism, with all of its rituals of Sabbath observance, keeping the law, dietary restrictions, blood sacrifices and temple worship, has ceased to exist and that all of these practices have come to an abrupt end with the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ.   Continue reading The End Of Judaism

Questions for Catholics

catholicHaving been born a Roman Catholic, raised by a father who had studied to be a Jesuit priest but did not complete his studies, and having studied Catholicism in depth before coming to the realization that RC doctrine did not line up with scripture and even contradicted it, I “came out of her” as per Revelations 18:4.

And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.  Revelation 18:4

My questions for most Catholics I minister to today is simply this:

When you die as a Catholic, where will you go?   Continue reading Questions for Catholics

It Is Written!

One of the most powerful weapons we have in our arsenal, is the word of God.  This is the sword in our armor, the sword of the spirit which is the word of God.

And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:  Ephesians 6:17

Jesus knew this very well and used this weapon Himself three times on Satan when he tempted Him in the desert at His weakest moment being hungry after 40 days of fasting, telling his enemy, “It is written…“.  This is recorded for us in the gospels of Matthew and Luke.   Continue reading It Is Written!

Because Of Your Unbelief
Because Of Your Unbelief – By Franciscus M. Dartee

Some of Jesus’ harshest words were for unbelievers.  Many are shocked to see in black and white what scathing words Jesus used against the scribes and Pharisees, calling them exactly what they were; liars, hypocrites, blind guides, fools, evil, full of extortion and excess, full of hypocrisy and iniquity, the children of them which killed the prophets, serpents, brood and generation of vipers, white washed walls, whited sepulchers full of dead men’s bones and all uncleanness, sons of hell and of their father the devil, murderers, blasphemers, an evil and adulterous generation.  His most fearsome accusation against them was,   Continue reading New Book: Because Of Your Unbelief

Because Of Your Unbelief – Part 2

Continued from Part 1

Not so, in third world countries where demons dominate out in the open through witchcraft and in your face physical manifestations. Just ask anyone from a third world country if they believe that demons are real and you will get a resounding “Oh, Yes!”

Why this difference between the two hemispheres? Could it be because of our ‘pride of life’?  In our western culture we have plenty of luxury and distractions, most of which are electronic, to keep us busy and it is not considered as sophisticated for us to believe in superstitions such as demons and witchcraft.

It is appalling to see how many people watch horror movies completely dulling their senses and discernment of the spiritual and fluff it off as it just being fantasy and not real anyway.  Or how we teach our children to celebrate the underworld Halloween with demonic ghouls and goblins, strangled dummies and graves with headstones on our front lawns, witches on broomstick flying into trees, demanding “trick or treat” that if we do not get a treat, we will place a trick (spell) on them, and yet treat it as completely innocent child’s play.  If we do not believe in demons then we must also not believe in God either and this is their advantage.   Continue reading Because Of Your Unbelief – Part 2

Evil Communication

islandNo matter where you turn today, bad news dominates discussion.  Every day we take in an ample dose of evil communication of fear and anxiety, of sickness and disease, of financial oppression, theft and ruin, of murder and death, of lives being decimated and destroyed by the enemy.

This is by design.  Not by God but by the enemy.

The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.  John 10:10

Part of the war machine of an aggressor nation is propaganda.  The first goal is to overtake and control all the communications of the population they seek to conquer.  It is a battle of the minds and to control the dialogue in an attempt to program the thoughts of the people.  Have you ever wondered why they call radio and television broadcasts ‘programming’?   Continue reading Evil Communication

Behold I Give You Power

Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.  Luke 10:19

deputy-sheriff-badgeJesus spoke this to 82 disciples, not just the 12 apostles as some believe.  So right here we see that the apostles were not the only ones who were given power to heal the sick, cleanse the lepers and raise the dead.

The first word translated here as “power” is the Greek word “exousia” which literally means “delegated authority” as in the lawful authority to exercise supernatural force.  Since Jesus had been delegated this authority as the son of man from the Father at His baptism in the Holy Ghost, He was able to delegate it in turn to whomever He desired.  All true believers have this same authority.   Continue reading Behold I Give You Power

Plan Of The Ages

dispensation_of_innocenceHave you ever wondered what happened from the beginning of time when God created the universe?  And what will happen in the near and distant future?  And what will happen all the way until the end of time?  And what God’s plans are concerning the earth, the gathering if His church, the tribulation, the antichrist, Jesus’ second coming, the millennium or 1,000 year reign, the rebirth of the nation of Israel, the ruling of the saints with Christ, the New Jerusalem descending out of heaven to earth, the new heavens and the new earth, God the Father dwelling on earth with us, and all the events God has set into motion?   Continue reading Plan Of The Ages

Arguing with Agnostics and Atheists

adam-and-eve-temptationNature itself proves that there is a God.

The beauty and goodness in the world proves that God exists. And since we are created in His image, these are His attributes that we have inherited by design.

The bad things in this world proves that evil exists.  Evil is not from God but from the adversary, the devil. This we inherited not from God but from Adam’s fall and failure to obey God. Continue reading Arguing with Agnostics and Atheists

Generational Curses Cancelled

3generationsIt keeps popping up like a bad penny that remains in circulation.  The sacred cow doctrine of generational curses causing sickness and disease that appears to be a favorite amongst gullible believers and eagerly disseminated by huckster,  opportunistic lay preachers who fleece the flock selling them nothing but snake oil.

I say lay preachers because they are not ordained of God to spew forth the heresy and doctrines of men which they are preaching as if they were commandments from God.  They refuse to adhere to clear and concise scripture on this matter, choosing instead to deceitfully secure the riches of this world to themselves rather than preach truth to store up eternal rewards in heaven.   Continue reading Generational Curses Cancelled

The Kingdom Of God Is Not In Word, But In Power

crippled_woman.pngJesus never excluded ministering healing from proclaiming the good news of the kingdom as almost all preachers do today.  Modern day preachers do the exact opposite.  They preach in word only and carefully and purposely avoid at all cost to minister healing for fear of nonperformance and thus they be exposed as spiritually devoid of power and risk losing their following.   Continue reading The Kingdom Of God Is Not In Word, But In Power

Dumb Sheep or Dumb Shepherds?

lost-sheep-1

His watchmen are blind: they are all ignorant, they are all dumb dogs, they cannot bark; sleeping, lying down, loving to slumber. Yea, they are greedy dogs which can never have enough, and they are shepherds that cannot understand: they all look to their own way, every one for his gain, from his quarter.
Isaiah 56:10-11

Why is it that most sermons today are geared towards dumb sheep?  Why are they being preached to from only half a gospel?  You know, only from the parts that don’t allow the sheep to ever challenge the shepherd’s message?   Continue reading Dumb Sheep or Dumb Shepherds?

sbicAre you in need of blessings in your life?  How would you like to experience the blessings of God in your life right now?  Immediately!

Jesus told us that in Him we have peace.  But He also told us that in the world we shall have tribulation.  However, He encouraged us to be happy and of good cheer because He has overcome the world.

These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.  John 16:33

Jesus said this before the cross.  He overcame the world just by His presence here.  Therefore His presence in us right now overcomes the world and gives you happiness and peace.   Continue reading Blessed With Every Spiritual Blessing

This Day Is This Scripture Fulfilled In Your Ears

 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,  To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.  Luke 4:18-19 (fulfilling Isaiah 61:1-2a)

holyghostTogether with Jesus, and in His name, I declare unto you:

…This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears.  Luke 4:21

Now before any Pharisees out there want to throw me off a cliff, let me explain.

Just as the Father had anointed Jesus to do all of these things, so has He today anointed you and me, as believers and disciples of Jesus Christ, and baptized in the Holy Spirit, to do the same.  Let me prove it to you from scripture.   Continue reading This Day Is This Scripture Fulfilled In Your Ears

If Two Of You Shall Agree

we-agreeIf someone asks you to pray for them, what is your first reaction?

Is it something like, “O no, what do I say?  How do I pray?  What if I don’t know what to say?” Etc., etc., etc.

Instead, why not just agree with them?  That is what the word tells us to do.

Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.
For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.  Matthew 18:18-20

Who Wants To Go To Purgatory?

ladyofmtcarmelwithsufferingsouls
Statue of Mary and baby Jesus with suffering souls in purgatory begging for mercy

Biblical Christians believe that to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord as Paul tells us in 2 Corinthians 5:8.  Therefor when we die in Christ, having been born again, confessed and repented of our sins, the next face we will see is that of Jesus, our Lord and our Savior.

The most basic tenet of the Christian faith is that Jesus paid the price for our sins by the shedding of His perfect, sinless blood on the cross as the Son of God, hereby being the sacrificial lamb that takes away the sins of the world.  This is what John the Baptist by the Holy Spirit confirmed when he saw Jesus coming to him.

The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.  John 1:29

Paul confirms that only the shedding of blood can remit sins.  Therefore the only efficacy for the remission of sin is blood and nothing else.   Continue reading Who Wants To Go To Purgatory?

Was Samuel Raised From The Dead?

And Samuel said to Saul, Why hast thou disquieted me, to bring me up?…  1 Samuel 28:15

saulAfter Saul had been rejected by God for his unfaithfulness and rebellion, God withdrew His Spirit from Saul.  The guidance he had been receiving from Samuel speaking to him by the word of Yehovah, was also gone because Samuel had died.  Saul was so distressed about the oncoming  battle with the Philistines the next day, that in desperation he sought a witch to bring up the spirit of Samuel to tell him what would happen and what he should do.

Many people believe that this is what happened and that God allowed the witch to bring up the sleeping spirit of Samuel to bring a word to Saul and prophecy to him what would happen.

Well, there are several problems with this theology.  Continue reading Was Samuel Raised From The Dead?
