Prayer that places unsaved people on a level playing field.

One of the questions most often asked concerns our prayers for another person. We are unsure if we can pray effectively that God will change or save them. Can our prayers override the will of another person? No! God has given man a free will, and God will never force a person against his free will.
“And the the Spirit and the bride say, come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athrist come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely” (Revelation 22:17).
God gives everyone a will. If we do not have a free will we are robots. We can say yes or no with our will. Did Adam and Eve have a free will? Did they not make a decision. It’s a dubious privilege to be free to make the wrong choice. People must choose God for themselves.
If we have children who have all the answers, a husband, a wife, a friend, a neighbor, we can pray for the person, but we cannot force our will upon them.
Why then do we pray for the unsaved? Let’s think outside the box just for a moment. King David said ” “Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity, and in sin my mother conceived me” (Psalm 51:5). Now who or what influences us as we grow up in a sin infested world?
Paul says in 2 Cor. 4:3,4 “But even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing, whose minds the god of this world has blinded, who do not believe lest they light of the gospel of the glory of Christ , who is the image of God, should shine on them.”
Can the unsaved truly have and execute their free will when all of hell is blinding them? How do they come to a place where they are not driven in darkness and unable to make a true choice. It is only in spiritual warfare that such a place exists. As we bind the powers of darkness in prayer. We bring God’s influence to people in prayer. Enabling them to make a choice.
let’s see an example form Jesus’ ministry. And when they were come to the multitude, there came to Him a certain man, kneeling down to Him [Jesus], and saying, “Lord, have mercy upon my son: for he is a lunatic and sore vexed: for ofttimes he fallen into the fire, and oft into the water. And I brought him unto Thy disciples, and they could not cure him.” Then Jesus answered and said…”Bring him hither to Me.” And Jesus rebuked the devil and he departed out of him: and the child was cured from that very hour” (Matthew 17:14-18).tumblr_lzp3x6n7do1qggdq1

Notice this child had Jesus sovereignly working from the outside upon him.Then came the disciples to Jesus apart, and said, “Why could not we cast [the demon] out?” And Jesus said unto them, “Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible to you. Howbeit this kind [that is, demon possession] goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.” (v.19-21)
Here was a child who was hopeless and helpless apart from the prayer of someone else. This was not a case of forcing the child’s will , but freeing the child from demonic oppression or infestation. We have a hell-bent world in the grip of Satan. When we pray, our prayers do not force people to be saved but free people to be saved. We bind away the blinder who blinds their eyes.
When someone asks me to pray for someone who is not a believer I like to bind the unclean spirits in the person (Matthew 18:18) and command them to get into a box and be silent. I cut off their cords on earth and in the heavenlies (The demons in the second heaven will try to reinforce the ones in the lost person) if I do not do this. I cast off all their lines (of reinforcement). I tell them they cannot go in or out.

Then I ask the Holy Spirit to bring to the person all the requests of the people who have prayed for their salvation to be presented to them (Rev.8:3,4).  The person is now on a level playing field in which they may make a choice without being robbed of the choice by the demons of hell.

Does this offend your theology? Oh well sorry but it works. Use your authority in Jesus’ name in spiritual strategy verses praying for years for a persons salvation.
Did Jesus have authority to cast the demon out? Of course but what did He do? He bound the demon and commanded it out then brought healing to the child.

Slaves of Sin to Slaves of God.

What then? Shall we sin because we are not under law but under grace? Certainly not! Do you not know that to whom you present yourdelves slaves to obey, you are that one’s slaves whom you obey, whether of sin leading to death, or of obedience leading to righteousness? But God be thanked that though you were slaves of sin, yet you obeyed from the heart that form of docrtine to which you were delivered. And having been set free from sin you became salves of righteousness. Romans 6:15-18. 13_guy-chained
Obeyed, hupakouo, Strong’s # 5219: to hear as a subordinate, listen attentively, obey as a subject, answer and respond, submit without reservation. To listen to something hearken (Acts 12:13) ; mostly it means to obey, (duh) give heed, follow, yield, of servants, soldiers, students (Matt. 8:27; Mark 1:27; Luke 8:25; Eph. 6:1,5).
The word thus contains the ideas of hearing, responding, and obeying.
This word also refers to the manifestation of faith as revealed in humble acceptance of the Gospel message (Acts 6:7; Rom.6:17; 10:16; 1 Thess. 1:8; 3:14; Heb.5:9).
Slaves of sin do not recognize the obligation to righteousness, but rather abondon themselves to a process of moral deteration, which has death as its end. Slaves of God, on the other hand devote themselves to holiness, a road that leads to everlasting life.

Ya Wanna hear a 1400 year old secret?

What is Islam, why should I care? Islam is a cultural, religious and political system. Only the political system is of interest to kafirs (non-Muslims) since it determines how we are defined and treated. The Islamic political system is contained in the Koran, the Hadith (the traditions of Mohammed) and his biography, the Sira. In this video you will see how Islam Destroyed The Entire European Classical Civilization.

This video explained by a scientist gives facts most Americans and Christians have never heard. I urge you to watch this video and become enlightened to the soft sell of “Islam is a peaceful religion.” It is malignant as you will be shown.

The Five Pillars of Islamic Conquest
Europe’s Last Stand “World Premiere Sept 24″  Below is the trailer for a new film, Europe’s Last Stand, produced by PRB Publishing and the Christian Action Network, which will premiere in Italy on September 24.  From the advance material sent out by CAN:

Europe’s Last Stand is a shocking and graphic documentary by an American film company that examines the Islamic invasion of Western Europe and its threat to European democracy, freedoms, culture and history.

A continent that once gave birth to the greatest advances in world civilization is now on the verge of being extinguished by an unrivaled foe of religious zealots who are on a quest to establish an Islamic Caliphate across the European continent.

The film is presented in five parts, revealing each of the Five Pillars of Islamic Conquest:

1. Infiltration.
2. Imams.
3. Isolation.
4. Islamization.
5. Implosion.

Europe’s Last Stand is an epic film about the heroes and villains, the champions and quitters, the bold and the weak in this life-and-death struggle for the heart and soul of Western Europe.

More than four years in the making — and with more than a dozen European countries visited and investigated — Europe’s Last Stand is the most authoritative film ever produced documenting the rise of Islam in Western Europe.

Violence …Protests … Arrests … they are all joined together with scores of eyewitness and expert testimonies from politicians, activists, business owners and everyday citizens to tell the story of Europe’s Last Stand.
The Five Pillars of Islamic Conquest:

Infiltration …

Between 1990 and 2009, 26 million Muslims have immigrated to Europe — coming from all directions and pouring into every country. No country has been hit harder than Italy with both legal and illegal Muslim immigrants. “The problem of illegal immigration in Italy and Europe is really a big issue that concerns us all — especially immigration from Muslim countries,” says Italian Senator Enrico Pianetta. “This will be the big issue in the years to come in Italy and Europe, because the nation’s birth rate is very low in Italy, but it is a very high birth rate by the Muslim people.”

Imams …

Along with millions of Muslim immigrants arriving in Europe are radical Imams. These extremist Islamic preachers have a large Internet following and guide thousands of European Muslims in their plan to implement Sharia law in the West, and to topple the governments of their home countries.

“Of course Islam is growing in Europe and we’re going to take over, anyway. Very soon. I’m sure of it,” said Abu Imran, with Sharia for Belgium.

Isolation …
Radical Imams want to reject the laws of secular society and replace them with the authority of Sharia in Muslim-controlled districts.

Essentially, they want to turn European cities into an Islamic state-within-a-state.

“We are obliged to rise as communities and confront evil with good, to invite the society to Islam, to take the authority away from the people who have it, to give it to the Muslims to implement Sharia.” (Anjem Choudary, Sharia 4UK)

Islamization …

From forcing banks to remove offensive piggy banks, to arresting citizens for making anti-Muslim comments, to requiring schools to serve Halal food, the goal of the radical Islamist is to force non-believing Europeans to conform to Sharia law. As politicians give in to the demands of the Islamists, it has some in Europe wondering what happened to their traditional rights and freedoms.

Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff: The CAN interview, March 2012“There is no free speech in Austria and in Europe. That’s just an illusion, that’s just what the politicians are telling you. If you wanted a definition of European free speech I would say, ‘Well you have the right to say anything as long as it’s within what the government tells you to think.’” Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff, Austrian citizens arrested and fined for criticizing the Prophet Muhammed.   eswcan

Implosion …

The final stage of the five pillars of Islamic Conquest is implosion. It happens when a nation loses its pride, when it sheds its uniqueness and honored heritage and when it forfeits its cherished beliefs to accommodate the demands of Sharia law.

“Why should we change our culture; why should we change our religion because we are hurting the sensibility of some other faith? When we go to their countries we cannot bring a Bible, we cannot build a church.” (Guido Lombardi, Executive Director, Italy’s League of the North.)

Showcase Interviews from Italy

Professor Roberto de Mattei, Roman Catholic historian and author, Rome:

“Today, the main enemy of Christianity, the main external enemy, is Islam, of course.”

Marco Guidi, journalist and former war correspondent, Bologna:

“It’s not true there are no extremists in Italy. Italy has been used for decades as a warehouse and a place of refuge for the Islamic fundamentalist.”

Armando Manocchia, President of A Street for Oriana Fallaci, Imola:

“And what we have built, sacrificed and set aside we are now giving away to people who are now Muslims.”

Italian Senator Francesco Casoli:

“I think the Italian style of life is much more easy for an immigrant to approach from a North African country.”

Italian Congressman Massimo Polledri:

“When they first arrive and they are on their own, they come here individually and they lead a normal life in their gardens, eating pork and doing what other people do. Its when they get together is when problems arise.”

Obama likes to declare that such-and-such “has no place in the twenty-first century.” That’s the “progressive” mind speaking, in confidence that there’s a trajectory and it’s going “forward” (if the progs can just keep those evil right-wingers from gumming up the works). To the progs, it’s inconceivable that a retrograde force could defeat them in the long run, because that would be against “history.”

Obama also recently declared that those who use brutal methods and destroy rather than build are destined to fail for that very reason — again, the proggy view of history. Obviously, it’s a view of history that’s both ignorant and arrogant.    All comments welcome

God is Zealous and Jealous over Jerusalem.

“Thus says the Lord of hosts; I am zealous for Zion with great jealousy, with great fervor I am zealous for her.” Zec. 8:2 NKJV.

jesus-lion-in-israel-jesus-20779492-365-400
Zealous, qanah, Strong’s # 7065: to be zealous, filled with zeal, full of emotion; to be passionate; also to be jealous or envious; to be highly possessive of something.
Qanah and its derivatives appear approximately 90 times in O.T. often in the context of the Lord’s becoming provoked to jealousy by flirtations of His people with false gods.
Qanah is not a negative word, though, as it is the zeal of the Lord that will bring about the Messiah’s eternal reign (Isa.9:7). The central meaning is jealousy (in a negative sense) and zeal (in a positive sense).
In a very real way, severing the one flesh(Gen. 2:24) was a form of murder, and adultry was punishable by death (lev. 20:10; Deut. 22:22). Using the marriage modal, God is often depicted in the O.T. as the Husband of Israel. He is a jealous God (Ex.20:5).
Every nation has its plans for Jerusalem; God, too, has His plans (Zec.8:3-15), which must overrule all human schemes. God promises to return to Zion, and dwell in the midst of Jerusalem. Jerusalem shall be called the City of Truth, The Mountain of the Lord of hosts, The Holy Mountain (Zec.8:3).

FIRST LIFE, THEN DOCTRINES.

Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the man who trusts in Him! Ps. 34:8.

Our service in the Body of Christ is based on our knowledge of Christ. This knowledge comes from our experience of life, not from doctrines.
God first gives us life and then doctrines. Life comes first, and doctrines follow. The Bible shows us that Abraham had a special contribution for the Body along the line of faith. This did not come by a teaching he received concerning faith, and it was not brought about by him communicating a doctrine to others. Instead, it came about by Abraham being brought into a set of circumstances in which he learned to trust God.
What was wrought into him through the fires of affliction was eventually ministered by him to the whole Body for its enrichment. First there was the life and lesson of faith and then the doctrine of faith.
How did Martin Luther become competent to teach the church concerning the truth that “the righteous one shall live by his faith” (Hab. 2:4)? He did not become competent by diligently studying the Bible as a textbook and then communicating the knowledge he had acquired; rather, he became competent through much suffering and affliction.
When his knees were worn from kneeling and his hope for justification was gone, the Lord revealed to him in a living way that a man is justified by faith.
After he had this experience, he gained the doctrine of justification by faith. Doctrine is necessary, but doctrine should follow experience, not precede it. First there should be life, and then doctrine should follow. First there should be the experience, and then there should be the teaching.
The order of the New Testament is first the Gospels (facts) and then the Epistles (doctrines). First, we have the life of Christ, and then we have the teachings of Christ. We should not spend all of our time studying, analyzing, and investigating a doctrine; these are works of reeds and will fail when the test comes.
The only thing that is useful is what God has wrought in us, and only this can render supply to others. The only way we can communicate to others in a living way is to communicate that which we have learned through experience. Discipline, suffering, and trials are the means for God to constitute the word into us so that we may have something to give to the Body. If we want to be ministers for the building up of the Body of Christ, we must not shrink from any trial, discipline, or dealing.(1)
we are never told in the Bible that Christians should seek out these experiences or that they are normative for all believers.

Despite potential for excesses and potential for problems, Christians should not avoid spiritual or crisis experiences altogether.
Francis Schaeffer points out, “Christianity is not only intellectual…Christianity is the reality of communion with God in the present life; it is the understanding that there is the indwelling Spirit; it is the understanding that there is the moment by moment empowering of the Holy Spirit… It is the understanding that the fruit of the Spirit is something real to all Christians.
It is the understanding that prayer is real and not just a devotional exercise. Indeed we must not overreact to… super-spirituality, but we must stress that Christ… means us to affirm life and not negate life. Such is the ideal. May God show us the living balance and help us to live, by his grace, in that balance.”
Altogether rejecting crisis experiences would strip our Christian lives of some of the most profound and rewarding events that occur in our lives. The result would be a dead and lifeless orthodoxy that is just as destructive as overemphasizing experience.
We should be grateful, as Paul was, when, through adversity or the overflow of the Spirit, we are granted accelerated growth or deeper insight into God’s character. But we can’t expect that these events will always occur in the life of every Christian.

While affirming healthy spiritual experiences, we should teach people to view sanctification as a process. During this process, Christians enjoy the power and presence of the Holy Spirit as He helps them to live in dependence on Him, have victory over sin, and serve effectively.
