The Democrat Bible

28 07 2016

Israeli_flag-burning_mEvery four years the Democratic Platform becomes more anti-Israel. Why is this? It is a natural result of leftist liberal ideology. It is very clear in liberal churches, which deny the literal authority of Scripture. Once you reject the authority of the Bible, you are on the slippery slope to apostasy. The Bible clearly speaks of Yehovah’s favor on Israel, not only in ancient times, but especially today in the miraculous restoration of modern Israel.

Yet, at this week’s Democratic Convention in Philadelphia we have seen Palestinian flags, and the burning of the Israeli flag outside the arena. Did you see this covered in the media? Probably not. Pay very close attention to both presidential candidates regarding Israel.

Liberal Jewish rabbis have also spoken at the convention, and at interfaith gatherings this week with Muslim imams. Here is an astonishing quote from Reform Rabbi Jonah Pesner, who manages to contradict Scripture 18o degrees, with a statement blaming the historic hatred of Israel from the Amalekites, not on their pagan evil death cult, but on Israel.

“The core teaching is that it wasn’t Amalek who was at fault, it was us, because we, the community allowed there to be stragglers to fall behind at the rear,” Pesner said.

Wow! Isn’t that liberalism in a nutshell? Just to refresh your memory, God judged Amalek to be so evil that they were to be utterly destroyed.

Then Yehovah said to Moses, “Write this for a memorial in the book and recount it in the hearing of Joshua, that I will utterly blot out the remembrance of Amalek from under heaven.” And Moses built an altar and called its name, Yehovah-Is-My-Banner; for he said, “Because Yehovah has sworn: Yehovah will have war with Amalek from generation to generation.” Exodus 17:14-16

King Saul’s failure to destroy Amalek left the spirit of Amalek alive to torment Israel ever since. King Saul lost his throne because of the disobedience.

For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because you have rejected the word of Yehovah, He also has rejected you from being king. 1 Samuel 15:23

Therefore it is critical that we hear, listen and do the word of Yehovah. We need to follow the Holy Spirit now more than ever and we must recognize Jesus/Yeshua as the Son of God and Messiah.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem!

(I have taken the liberty to change the word “LORD” to Yehovah. Every single time you see LORD or GOD in all capital letters in the Old Testament, the actual Hebrew word is Yehovah. This name occurs 6,828 times in the Hebrew text, yet remains untranslated in most Bibles. His name, obscured for 2,500 years, is now being revealed. It is TIME to restore the name of Yehovah!

Supreme Leader of the Muslim World

19 07 2016

anti-MessiahMuslim Scholars declare post-coup Erdogan SUPREME LEADER for the ENTIRE Muslim World

Don’t miss this! While our attention has been on the election and murders of police, an event of Biblical importance was announced in the Muslim world. Turkey’s President Erdogan has been recognized by all Muslim scholars globally. This has just happened this week. Here is the report from Walid Shoebat, an ex-Muslim radical who now preaches Jesus.

After the failed coup in Turkey, a crucial letter of allegiance granted to Erdogan by all Muslim scholars globally was sent from none other than Sheikh Yusuf Qaradawi, president of the World Federation of Muslim Scholars. 

Qaradawi represents all Sunni Muslim scholars globally. He even tweeted some of its contents. The excerpts from this letter was shared in every media in the Middle East. From the Arab world to Turkey, every Arabic speaking media covered it with zero mention in the West. It consists of what many viewed as a direct command from heaven itself to Erdogan declaring that “Allah” including “the angelic host” and “the saints” appointed Erdogan to be given allegiance by all Muslims including all Muslim scholars from all four corners of the globe:

“Allah is with you and all Arab and Muslim nations are with you including all freedom loving people are with you. We, all the Muslim scholars, in the four corners of the globe, are with you. The Angel Gabriel and the righteous one [in heaven] are with you. And after that the angels will be revealed.”

Many commentators believe that Erdogan himself may have faked the coup, in order to impose Sharia in Turkey. But this development seems far more sinister. I have said for several years that this verse in Revelation may apply to Turkey and the “decapitated” Caliphate from the 400 year Ottoman Empire after the first World War. Has the head wound been healed?

And I saw one of his heads as if it had been mortally wounded, and his deadly wound was healed. And all the world marveled and followed the beast. Revelation 13:3
Whatever this means, it certainly bears watching and praying. One of the consequences of the failed “coup” is that Erdogan has closed down the airbase that the US uses in Turkey for the bombing of Isis in Syria. This is complicated by the fact that the US has tactical nukes at the location which could fall into the hands of Turkey.

Remember that God is in control and all is right on His schedule. We do not need to fear. Trust in Yehovah God and His Messiah and Son, Yeshua ben Yehovah.

For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. 2Timothy 1:7

Beautiful New England

15 07 2016

IMG_20130905_130046_848After an enjoyable train ride from North Carolina, we have arrived in Maine for three weeks of ministry including New Hampshire and Connecticut. We are delighted to speak in four churches with 7 or 8 meetings. We are based with our friends Rob & Ruth Brown whose Hospitality begins with a capital H.

The main message the Lord has given me is for faith over fear. The word I received in my May Idaho trip is more needed every day. I preached it last week at New Path Church in Raleigh, NC with the title: “Have You Taken the Mark Yet?”

The Dallas Police murders followed by the Nice, France terrorist slaughter are only the most recent examples of a terrible release of the demonic spirit of fear from the pit of hell. Yet, the Bible is crystal clear:

For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. 2Timothy 1:7

Notice that fear is a “spirit,” and it is not from God! Most of the talk this election year has been about anger. But the Lord showed me that anger is only the tip of the iceberg. Underneath the anger is a deep personal visceral fear of what is coming upon us. Believers should not give in to fear, but rather encourage one another in our faith. We are not under the devil’s power. Yehovah God and His Son, Jesus, Yeshua ben Yehovah has all authority and we need only fear Him. Our times are in His hands and the devil cannot kill us without a “hunting permit.” Through the blood of Jesus, the Messiah, we are part of the family of God.

For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, “Abba, Father.” Romans 8:15

Does that mean we cannot be martyred? No, it means that if we die, we know we will be raised back to eternal life. Death itself has been defeated! We will live again, just as Jesus died and yet lives!

Declare the life of Yehovah and resist the temptation to fear. Put your trust in Jesus. He never fails.

Pray for One Another

1 07 2016

LOLConfess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and produces wonderful results. James 5:16 NLT

A new phenomenon has emerged in Christian relationships with non-Christians. We are offering to pray for them when they share a need or a hurt. God responds by touching them in such a way that they know He did. It may be healing or they may feel “electricity” or heat or fire in their body. It is a reversal of traditional “witnessing” where we started with their sin and their “lostness” rather than their pain.

This is patterned after the Luke 10 model of first blessing, then fellowship, then sharing their hurts and then prayer. It is at this point, after God acts, that we can share the Kingdom of God.

Speak peace (blessing) – “But whatever house you enter, first say, ‘Peace to this house.’ Luke 10:5

Eat and fellowship – “And remain in the same house, eating and drinking such things as they give,” Luke 10:6

Heal the hurts – “And heal the sick there,” Luke 10:9a

Share the Gospel – “say to them, ‘The kingdom of God has come near to you.’” Luke 10:9b

A friend in our home group has been praying for people out in the marketplace for several months with supernatural healing testimonies every week. Another friend is spending the summer in Germany sharing Jesus with Muslim refugees and also seeing supernatural results. He has talked to several who have a story of “a man in white” in their dreams, leading to salvation and baptism. Some even experience severe persecutions from other Muslims and their own families.

The key is to pray with them. We all need to offer to pray for anyone who shares their pain and need with us. It is what allows Yehovah God the Father to touch them through Jesus and the Holy Spirit; in a way that opens their heart to His Kingdom.

For King Jesus and for His Kingdom!

What Would Jesus Say?

Terror War is Not Human

17 06 2016

Dry Bones Religious programmingThe debate this week has been about using the phrase: “radical Islamic terrorism.” However, even using that phrase misses the real problem. This is not simply a human war. There are real living spiritual demonic forces behind the human activity.

For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places. Ephesians 6:12 NLT

Most view Islam and Sharia as only a political ideology. They see the religion as less significant. But Islam is a demonically empowered religion. Communism might have conquered the world if it had a religious fanaticism component. Islam is more dangerous because it has the political world supremacist ideology married to the fundamentalist religious spirit.

Jesus warned about bothThen He charged them, saying, “Take heed, beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and the leaven of Herod.” Mark 8:15 NKJV

The leaven of the Pharisees was the religious spirit of “self-righteousness.” The leaven of Herod was the political spirit of “self-interest.” Communist supremacy, Nazi supremacy, and even “white” supremacy are all primarily political. Islam is both.

Most Christians are aware that God gave us the power of the Holy Spirit in Acts 2. Most also know that the Greek word translated “power” is “dunamis.” It is the root of our English words “dynamic” and “dynamite.” However, most Christians don’t know about the revelation of Luke 10. The King James translation for generations read like this:

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 KJV

Notice that the word “power” is used twice. This choice of the translators had the effect of hiding an important revelation. They are not both “dunamis” in the Greek. The first one is actually the Greek word for jurisdiction or jurisdictional authority. Later translations read like this:

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

So, the devil has dunamis power and we have dunamis power. The difference is that followers of Jesus have authority or jurisdiction over the enemy power. Therefore, our victory over the spiritual forces arrayed against us, depends completely on the authority of Jesus that has been given to us to overcome the enemy. Praise God! So let’s do it. Make sure you battle in the spiritual dimension. Don’t allow distractions to human issues.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem!

First Fruits of Shavuot

8 06 2016

figThis coming Sunday, Jews around the world celebrate Shavuot, which Christians call Pentecost. It occurs exactly 5o days after Passover. What  is the embedded meaning in this singular summer feast? With three Spring feasts and three Fall feasts, how is this one unique for both Jews and Christians? Last week Jerusalem Day was celebrated in Israel, marking 49 years since its liberation and reunification through the Six Day War of 1967.

But this week hearts turn to the majestic march of the history of the Jewish nation. It speaks of Yehovah’s choosing and blessing of Israel, as a means to bless all the nations of the earth. Judaism teaches that God gave the Law of Mt. Sinai on Shavuot. The Bible clearly teaches the feast as the first fruits of the wheat harvest. The Book of Ruth is usually read at this time since it took place in the wheat harvest and tells the beautiful love story of Boaz and Ruth. King David was their great-grandson.

Shavuot was also the first day on which people could bring the Bikkurim (first fruits) to the Temple in Jerusalem. The first fruits were brought from the Seven Species for which the Land of Israel is praised: wheat, barley, grapes, figs, pomegranates, olives, and dates.

For Yehovah your God is bringing you into a good land, a land of brooks of water, of fountains and springs, that flow out of valleys and hills; a land of wheat and barley, of vines and fig trees and pomegranates, a land of olive oil and honey; a land in which you will eat bread without scarcity, in which you will lack nothing; a land whose stones are iron and out of whose hills you can dig copper. When you have eaten and are full, then you shall bless Yehovah your God for the good land which He has given you. Deuteronomy 8:7-10

 “And it shall be, when you come into the land which Yehovah your God is giving you as an inheritance, and you possess it and dwell in it, that you shall take some of the first of all the produce of the ground, which you shall bring from your land that Yehovah your God is giving you, and put it in a basket and go to the place where Yehovah your God chooses to make His name abide. And you shall go to the one who is priest in those days, and say to him, ‘I declare today to Yehovah your God that I have come to the country which Yehovah swore to our fathers to give us.’” Deuteronomy 26:1-3

So, we see that Israel became the first fruit nation of Yehovah at Sinai. But also in His sovereign timing, Shavuot/Pentecost was also the exact day that the Holy Spirit was poured out on the first fruits of the early church. This would lead to the whole world being blessed through the seed of David, the seed of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Jesus/Yeshua had to be a descendant of King David to qualify as the Promised Messiah. He Himself was the first fruit from the dead and He poured out the Holy Spirit after ascending to His throne at the Heavenly Father Yehovah’s right hand. Blessed be His holy name forever!

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and the soon coming Messiah!
