Quench

hqdefault

The above title may lead us to think about thirst. But the scripture has nothing to do with thirst.

As a matter of fact when we have read this scripture most of us may have never received an understanding and we may have heard various reasons as to what the scripture is referring to. Well, I don’t want to discount anything our pastors have said but I do want to give us something to think about. This will give us all something to think about in our walk with JESUS as we mature in HIM and know what we can by free will do even though we have the Holy Spirit living on the inside of us.

As we are still growing up in JESUS we still have a desire to say and do what is against the Word of GOD. Let me give an example, we have been diagnosed with arthritis and we confess that we have arthritis. We are speaking against the Word of GOD which has told us that we are healed which in essence is doing the following, suffocating the Holy Spirit.

I know that it’s a fact that the diagnoses are that the joints show from the test that the body reveals arthritis. But Faith in the Word of GOD because of the torture, the broken body of JESUS who was crucified on the cross for us, who took for HIS very own every disease, illness, and sickness upon HIMself. So why are we taking ownership of these things?

If we have the Holy Spirit living on the inside of us, we hear Him speaking to us about JESUS. We hear Him giving us correct direction. We hear Him giving us wisdom for the day. But if we are not listening we are willingly stopping Him from breathing, stopping Him from His action to help us as JESUS has sent Him here to do.

To temporarily stop the breath of the Holy Spirit only causes us problems. Think back to something that we wanted to do impulsively. Because our desires burned so hot, we did not consult with the Holy Spirit and let’s be truthful, most of us never consider to speak with Him on a daily basis at all.

Our actions have the ability to extinguish and to suppress the Holy Spirit. We actually have the free will to hinder the Holy Spirit from transpiring or spreading the Word of JESUS as He was sent here to do. When we do not allow the Holy Spirit to operate in our lives freely as He was sent here to do from JESUS we restrain Him, we cause Him to be concealed, we withhold Him from escaping and being manifested within our lives so that we can live fulfilled lives and we are only hurting ourselves. We are only limiting ourselves. We are not living in the fullness of the glory of GOD as we are intended to.

This is what is meant by “Do not quench the Spirit”.

Rainbow

4240631-rainbow

The rainbow is not a symbol for perversion. The rainbow is a sign of the covenant promise made by GOD the FATHER for HIS created earth.

  1. The rainbow belongs and is owned by the Creative GOD.
  2. The Creator GOD is the One who brings clouds over the earth.
  3. The rainbow is seen in the clouds.
  4. The LORD GOD remembers HIS covenant.
  5. The covenant is between HIMself and all living flesh.
  6. The LORD GOD looks at the rainbow and HE remembers the covenant between HIMself and every living flesh on the earth.
  7. The rainbow is a sign of the covenant that the LORD GOD Almighty has established between HIMself and all living flesh, human and animal on the earth.

People have taken the rainbow and turned it into a good luck charm, we will never find the word luck anywhere in the Bible. Actually, what taught me many years ago to stop using the word luck was to think of it on these terms.

Living

Under

Corrupt/Carnal

Knowledge

So how seriously should we take the rainbow? Very. Because it’s a contract provided to us by our Creator. Each time we see the rainbow in the clouds we should get excited because not only is GOD remembering but we should be remembering as well the promise made to all living flesh that the LORD GOD will never again destroy the earth and flesh by flood waters.

The enemy has taken the colors of the rainbow and has used them to symbolize a way of life that is filled with apostasy. The strategy for this is because he knew that using those particular colors would prick at the heart of the church but the church sat back and did not show up for a battle that was already won by their GOD and Savior. So everywhere we look, we now see those beautiful colors flying in the representation of a demonic lifestyle.

But I’m reminding you that the rainbow and its colors are from our LORD GOD and is a reminder of HIS covenant and that is what we are to remember.

Even when descriptions are given to us about JESUS and the nearness of HIS throne the description of the rainbow is given to us. Oh, you know I almost forgot about Joseph and his coat of many colors. Though it’s not given us the colors, this is my own perception, but I do believe that his coat held the colors of the rainbow. And last but not least the stones that were on the Ephod of the priest that represented the twelve tribes were the colors of the rainbow. So I believe those colors have great significance and when I get home (heaven) I will find out what it is if the Holy Spirit does not reveal that answer to me beforehand.

Raised

u-s-christian-flags

The Holy Spirit brought it to my attention last week that many of us do not know who we are and who lives on the inside of us.

If we were to leave America the home of the brave the country of freedom and the land of opportunity. Only to discover that everything that we have taken for granted only because we were born here and do not know how the other world lives. We would be quick to yell, “I’m an American” and will do so with pride. Why is this? Because America has instilled within us all her beliefs of patriotism or at least she once did and we took those to heart. Because we understood and respected them with great reverence. As an American, I know that I have all the rights which are my birthright to have because I am native born. We have even reached a point in our history that a female can become President of the United States of America, so I qualify age wise and gender wise. There is absolutely nothing in America that I am not allowed to do freely with the exception of breaking the law and I don’t want to do that anyway.

It’s the very same way with being a CHRISTian, I have a birthright. I’m no longer qualified to be considered native born because Adam gave that right away to satan. But I have been adopted which means that I have all the exact same rights as a natural born citizen and a natural born DNA member of the family. I qualify for everything offered, I even have an inheritance that I don’t have to wait to die and get. I had to put that in there because religious people believe that you have to die to get to that sweet by and by to get yours. Well, I’m enjoying mine now. JESUS died the New Testament/Will/Contract was invoked, so I’m enjoying them.

So, tell me what is the difference between being a CHRISTian and being a Christian? I’ve written in previous blogs over the years that many Americans believe that they are Christians only because they were born here in America, they belong to a certain denomination of church and or because of their upbringing in the home. But this is a great error in your understanding.

A CHRISTian is a human being CHRIST like. CHRIST which actually means Anointed One and HIS anointing. This human being has an active relationship with JESUS based on nothing of human effort, everything on faith, forgiveness from the FATHER, the shed blood of JESUS, grace, mercy, love and communication between JESUS and the human. The Christian, on the other hand, is religious, they stand firm on rituals, they are miserable, they pick and choose what they will believe in the Word of GOD and if they do read their Bible they constantly read the Old Testament/Will/Contract where they will never see JESUS plainly so they can find out who HE is and who they are. They are critical and judgemental of others but never see their own faults and ask JESUS to work on themselves.

Well, that’s just a little about a CHRISTian and a Christian, I really did not come to write about that today. What I would like to share with you is about being raised up in CHRIST JESUS. Hmm, maybe that’s why I had to write all of that beforehand.

Have you heard that GOD is a Spirit and those that worship HIM must worship HIM in spirit and in truth? What this is explaining to us is that GOD does not speak to our flesh and we can’t communicate with the FATHER via our flesh either. We must communicate to our FATHER using our true identity, our spirit. And we will not be able to communicate with our FATHER in truth if truth does not reside there. So how does or when does truth become resident within our spirit? The moment we by faith, receive the gift of salvation from JESUS. Truth is, JESUS did die on a cross which was at that time corporal punishment, had it been today, HE would have gotten a lethal injection. But it’s also truth that JESUS by the Holy Spirit which JESUS released so that HE can die. Arose from the dead! Now, you are going to have to pay attention here.       

Which means that we rise from the dead! Not only when we close our eyes and we are eulogized. I mean the most important resurrection that will lead to the ascension with JESUS. The time when we by faith receive the gift of salvation, we too arose from the dead. We too were arisen by that very same Spirit that got JESUS up.  Our spirit man got up and began to breathe and move, and speak. This is why the scripture tells us that we have life in our mortal bodies. The true us was dead, we were dead now with the Spirit we are alive.

We are HIS anointed ones with HIS Anointing which translates to with all the very same power that HE had while HE was here in human form we now have. Nothing lacking. So when that Dr. gives us a negative report, fact, this is what all his/her test confirms but Faith confirms that JESUS already took all those little facts upon HIMself so speak that Word into your hearing until your spirit tells your soul and your soul tells your flesh and the flesh shows the Dr. by his/her test that you are healthy. So when everything around us seems to be going wrong and the fact is it’s our focus. Train your focus on the Word of GOD so that your circumstances will line up with the praise and thanksgiving you are offering to the FATHER for HIS faithfulness, thank JESUS that HIS Word is from everlasting to everlasting and that you can run to HIM and HIS Word to find shelter in your storms.

Stop being scared, know who you are. You are JESUS little anointed ones and you live and walk in HIS anointing because you have HIS Spirit living on the inside of you. We have been raised up with HIM!

Ransom

tumblr_n2x6w34b5e1svej5no1_1280

We may know that a ransom is a price paid that is surrendered for someone or something that we desperately want back.

But for our CREATOR our LORD GOD our FATHER the ransom paid for the world was so much more than what we ever really consider. We really must consider for ourselves individually how HE saw us only and said you, yes you are worth the price that must be paid to come back to HIM. You dear one are that much loved, you dear one are that greatly wanted.

Adam sold himself and Eve and every descendent of his into demonic captivity and if you are not aware, we are all in and under demonic captivity. We are in bondage and prisoners of sin and satan is our warden, our jailer, our non-correctional officer.

JESUS did not step down from HIS throne and put on flesh to be served by mankind, JESUS did not even look to be worshipped by us at that time. What HE was doing was pointing us back to the FATHER through Love, Forgiveness, and to Serve. JESUS gave HIS very precious sinless life just for you, not your parents, your kids, your siblings, your neighbors, and any other people you know though HE did. You must concentrate on the fact that HE gave HIMself just-for-you.

When JESUS died on the cross just for you, it was to release you from the captivity of sin and bondage. It was to release you from being the possession of the enemy which is the devil also known as satan.

There is only one GOD and there is only one Mediator between GOD and mankind the Man CHRIST JESUS, who gave HIMself a ransom for us all. I believe you count as us as well as all.

JESUS is the only One who can speak on your behalf, HE is your, our attorney in the courtroom. When we receive HIM by faith, meaning that we believe that JESUS is all that HE is according to the Word of GOD in the book of John chapter 1 versus 1-5, 10-14, and 16-18. The gift of salvation will be that gift that will continue to keep giving in our lives.

We will be eternally thankful that JESUS paid such a costly price for us. JESUS was the only One who was able to pay that debt for procuring the pardon of our sins and the redemption of sinners for the punishment that we so rightly deserve. To be delivered from hell and the lake of everlasting fire and torment. JESUS came and rescued us from this. Believe in HIM. Take HIS gift of Salvation. Receive HIM.

I know you believe in hell because it’s a part of your vocabulary and no one speaks of anything that they know nothing of or disbelieve in.

I also know that you believe in heaven because everyone wants to go but there is only one way there and that way is through JESUS. JESUS is the Way, the Truth, and the Light.

Reap

what-you-sow-is-what-you-reap

 

Be encouraged!

If we are dedicating our daily tasks to the LORD GOD, we will reap a harvest.

If we begin each day asking the LORD GOD what is it that HE desires for us today, and we follow through, we will reap a harvest.

If we ask to have our spiritual eyes and ears open so that we may hear the directions of the Holy Spirit, we will reap a harvest.

If we are allowing the Word of GOD to direct our footsteps, we will reap a harvest.

Don’t or stop allowing ourselves to be weary (fatigued, tired) in the emotions and the mind.

When we follow the directions of the Holy Spirit we are doing good. It may seem as though we are wasting our time but nothing is further from the truth. Our dedicating our day to the LORD GOD and following HIS directions through actions and speaking is our sowing where we are in the present. We must continue to see in the spirit and take our natural eyes off our environment. In due time we will see that which was sown because we obeyed the voice of the LORD GOD. We will get to see the harvest that JESUS desired for us to plant.

So don’t become or stop being discourage about what you see and hear and most of all stop listening to the devil when he tells us that we are wasting our time. We are not! Remember this from me, each and every negative thought that infiltrates our mind is not from JESUS. Everything that does not line up with the Word of GOD is from our enemy. Remember, he may speak to us in part the LORD GOD’s Word but he will always leave out the context. Our encouragement and promise are found in the context and only if and when we listen to the wisdom of the Holy Spirit will we get the understanding.

Reason

faithreason

 

That which is thought or which is alleged in words, as the ground or cause of opinion, conclusion or determination. The cause, principle or motive of anything said or done; that which supports or justifies a determination, plan or measure.

What do we think the Bible is telling us on any given subject for our lives?

What fact are we pronouncing when we share GOD’s Word with others are we very positive about what we believe and say?

What is the foundation for which what we believe will be supported in the Word of GOD and by faith? And what is the primary cause for the opinion that with which we believe?

What was the motive JESUS had for sharing HIS Word with us as well as demonstrating what HE left for us as the great examples and what is our motive for sharing what we believe with others but more often than not we do not demonstrate by the examples left for us?

How are we justified, what makes us come to a determination for what we add to the plan of life for us?

What a different blog this is because it points us to question why does JESUS want us to be in a conversation with HIM all the time. Reasoning with JESUS is not just about questioning HIM about stuff, but it’s to give us wisdom and understanding about HIS true intent as to what and why HE did and said the things HE did and why we are to follow. JESUS lived as a human while the law was still our mentor and JESUS the One who wrote the law obeyed the law. But if we notice HE did not obey the letter of the law but the spirit in which HE wrote the law. Every single ceremonial law that was written, JESUS participated in and every single moral law that was written JESUS adhered to as well. The Pharisees and the Sadducees took advantage of the people with the letter of the law, they never shared the entire truth because they themselves did not know the truth. And they added more stringent laws to the Israelites but never once obeyed what they decreed themselves. Not only that, they were not in agreement about the resurrection and of angels. And most definitely did not at any time exercise grace, love, and mercy towards anyone with the exception of love for the money. They took advantage of the ignorant and the poor. They never helped anyone but themselves. These sect of people were extremist when it came to the law which is called legalism. But JESUS though born under the law showed us how we are to obey the law simply out of pure love and faith. We are to show grace because grace is shown toward us each and everyday. We are to be merciful because mercy is what is given to us each and everyday. We are to be loving towards others especially those who have faith in JESUS because the FATHER and JESUS loves us more than we will ever be able to comprehend. Stop fooling yourself, not everything we do and everything we say is counted as being loving. Without fear of dread we can come to the FATHER boldly, we can chill with JESUS because we are family. Share a joke (clean), ask HIM how HIS day is going, share our day with HIM, and speak with HIM as if we can see HIM in the car or room with us. HE will reply because it’s a conversation (speaking about a matter without restraint between two or more participants).

Another example as to why we should conversate / reason with JESUS is because although HE knows everything and sees everything. HE desires that we remind HIM of HIS promise, it’s not that HE has forgotten, HE’s GOD, HE’s not forgotten us. We don’t understand that when we say aloud in our own hearing we are exercising our faith to believe. If I can give a proper example, it’s like speaking and all of a sudden we may say, hold up, what did I say! And it’s like a light has come on and while we are in conversation with JESUS our angels are on the move or we are instantly comforted from what we perceived as a problem for us.

Do you know that we reason together with people daily but we find it strange to reason together with JESUS?

I tell you a truth when we begin to speak with JESUS as if we can see HIM near us because in truth HE really is. Our day will become more relaxing and we will be able to encourage others around us.

Rebellion

images

Let us get a clear understanding of the definition of rebellion from a dictionary and bible standpoint.

An open and avowed renunciation of the authority of the government to which one owes allegiance; open resistance to lawful authority.

We are all guilty of denunciating the authority of JESUS and we are all guilty of denunciating the Kingdom of GOD. The Kingdom of GOD is a government. JESUS has all authority. It was done in total ignorance. For many of us, we grew up in homes where the teaching of GOD’s sovereignty did not exist. We may have attended church service but in reality, we did not truly believe in GOD, we just believed in the head knowledge of HIM. It may or may not have gone as far as we saying that we know that JESUS loves us and died for us but we really did not or do not believe that. Because if that were true, why are we still being rebellious towards JESUS and HIS Word?

And the definition found in scripture is that rebellion is like the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is the crime of idolatry. Do you know that this is the act of rejecting the Word of the LORD? A witch is a female who practices enchantments, given to unlawful arts and has made a pact with the devil. A male witch is known as a warlock does the exact same thing. Craft is a skill and ability, craft in and of itself is not a bad or good thing. But link the two words together, witchcraft and you have one who is rebellious and has rejected the Word of the LORD GOD by obeying and practicing sin which is from the devil himself. The enchantments that are commonly used is alcohol, drugs, pornography and illicit sexual activities. We can even enchant someone with our empty words of conversation, lies, and deception.

In the days of old, Israel who is our example setter of what not to do, exercised great rebellion against the LORD GOD. JESUS went before them at night by the fire and by a cloud during the day. HE found them a home, choice land for them to rest and still they denied HIM. So how did the Israelites deny JESUS? By continually complaining, by relying on their own efforts and strength. Thank YOU, JESUS that we no longer have to die for our rebellion. YOU are no longer angry with us as YOU were in the days of old. Now, YOU show us YOUR grace, love, and mercy. YOU know that we don’t know any better and that we can’t help our own selves. And because the Israelites were rebellious they never got to enter the promised land of Canaan, only Caleb, and Joshua.

Some of us may say that our GOD is the same yesterday, today and forever and then believe that because of HIS love for us that HE will never send anyone to hell. Well, to a degree you are correct. You see, because of HIS Love, Grace, and Mercy HE doesn’t send any of us to hell. The FATHER sent HIS only begotten SON to come and take the full punishment that we so rightly deserve because of our rebellion so that we may not take on that punishment of going to hell into the everlasting lake of fire. Yet, with all the technology we have, with all those who stand out on the streets to proclaim the saving grace of JESUS and with blogs such as this. There are people who still rebel against JESUS. And because of denying JESUS we suffer the exact same punishment as satan and will be burned.

This is a promise.

The godless [rebellious] are as thorns to be thrown away, they shall be burned.

But for those of us who stop being rebellious with the help of CHRIST JESUS, we have this promise.

GOD guaranteed HIS covenant with me,
spelled it out plainly
and kept every promised word
my entire salvation,
my every desire.

Rebellion also brings with it pride. What was satan’s fall? Pride. Pride gives to us a hard heart, we build up walls in the hope that no one will ever hurt us again. With this, we stop listening to those who speak in wisdom and avail ourselves to silly, loud, uncontrolled willed and unwise people. And if you do hear the commandments of the LORD you don’t obey them. Some of us who are truly saved will even take the Word of GOD and twist it to mean what we want it to mean because we are not willing to turn a particular sin over to JESUS. And some of us beat up the ungodly with the Word of GOD preaching legalism instead of love. People don’t need to know that they are in the wrong, this they know. What they need to hear over and over again is how much GOD through CHRIST JESUS loves them and who we can be in HIM. Those that preach condemnation and legalism are the very same one’s who practice such things themselves. They are present day Pharisees and Sadducees. Our loving GOD remains in the ready to pardon all of us. The LORD GOD is not willing to punish anyone, HE is not up in heaven angry at any of us. Actually, HE is very slow to be angered and HE provided HIS grace and mercy on all of us whether we belong to HIM or not. The LORD GOD is abundant in HIS kindness and HE will never forsake or abandon us but we are guilty of forsaking and abandoning HIM. The LORD GOD is faithful towards us but we are not faithful towards HIM. Even those of us who serve the LORD GOD is guilty, yet, forgiven because we still may have idols that we have not let go of as yet in the form of people, places, and things.

We are still guilty of speaking against what the Word of GOD informs us about. The Word has provided us with information that we are healed, yet, we still claim illnesses, we still believe the report of the doctors, our language is not different from those who are not believers. This is another example of rebellion which is a sin.

The FATHER and CHRIST JESUS is our GOD, we are the people of HIS pasture, HE is the One who provides and takes care of us. We must daily request to hear HIS Word as HE speaks to us, we must not turn away and harden our heart to HIS Word, HE knows what is best for us, we don’t. Let us not be as the Israelites who too saw the goodness of our GOD and yet they stilled rebelled and tested against HIM.

And always test the spirit by the Holy Spirit because everyone who says that they are something does not mean that they are anointed and ordained of the LORD GOD. We have an example of a wicked prophet also known as a prophet-liar, the name was Hananiah. This is why we must know the Word of GOD for ourselves, wolves will dress up in sheep’s clothing and twist the Word of GOD to satisfy you and themselves. The Holy Spirit will only witness about CHRIST JESUS, He will never point the finger at Himself or promote anything that will satisfy your hungering flesh. Those that practice this art such as pimps in the pulpit, those who claim that signs and wonders follow their ministry but when you go up and you are not delivered from what is attacking you. Then they will tell you that you have no faith. JESUS healed most that had no faith! These are only small examples but they are teachers of rebellion.

If you know a brother or sister in the faith of CHRIST JESUS and they are being rebellious, gently and lovingly point out what is wrong. If they don’t want to hear from you leave it alone and keep that person in your prayers. This, however, does not mean that we have a license to be fault finders. We are not ordained or anointed to be fault finding police.

I know that I’ve written this before but I can’t stress this too much, please do not harden your heart toward JESUS and HIS Word, do not complain, and do not trust your own self-effort and strength this is rebellion. Remain in the posture of listening to the voice of the LORD.

Those who are rebellious are no different than Cain, he had anger issues and murdered his brother. Balaam was a prophet he pimped out his anointing. Anyone in leadership that will pimp the anointing for profit, because they know that most people do not know the Word of GOD, will take advantage of you.
