For this reason, rejoice, O heavens and you who dwell in them. Woe to the earth and the sea, because the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, knowing that he has only a short time. Revelation 12:12
Shabbat shalom dearly beloved!
What is really happening in this world? Where are we going? What does the future hold? Some think that the development of High Tech and Nano-Technology plus Genetic Engineering shows that things in the world are getting better and better since humans seem to be brighter and brighter. While I am quite excited about some High Tech and other developments, the fact that we can now clone animals and even humans makes me feel jittery and for some reason it reminds me of the Tower of Babel. Can you imagine the euphoria they felt when they were about to cross the Atmosphere layer over the earth into the Stratosphere in their building before Elohim stopped them? After all, all they wanted with their own efforts was to reach the Throne of Elohim!
They said, “Come, let us build for ourselves a city, and a tower whose top will reach into heaven, and let us make for ourselves a name, otherwise we will be scattered abroad over the face of the whole earth.” Genesis 11:4
Just like a friend of theirs in the Angelic Force of Heaven, a guy by the name of Lucifer decided to lift himself up above the Stars of God and make himself equal to the Most High!
But you said in your heart, ‘I will ascend to heaven; I will raise my throne above the stars of God, and I will sit on the mount of assembly in the recesses of the north. I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will make myself like the Most High.’ Isaiah 14:13,14
Humans have always wanted to remove the Curse and all limitations by their own efforts! But the Word of Yah (God) tells us that there is only one way to remove the curse and its limitations of disease, poverty and the like. That one way has a name and His name is Yeshua, the Jewish Messiah! He said about Himself “I am the Light of the World”, He went on to say that whoever would walk with Him will never be in darkness!
This is the judgment, that the Light has come into the world, and men loved the darkness rather than the Light, for their deeds were evil. 20 For everyone who does evil hates the Light, and does not come to the Light for fear that his deeds will be exposed. 21 But he who practices the truth comes to the Light, so that his deeds may be manifested as having been wrought in God.” John 3:19-21
The Battle of the Ages is between Light and darkness, Truth and lies, the Rule of Messiah or of anti-Messiah (antichrist). It is about removing hell from earth and bringing Heaven down to earth.
Your kingdom come. Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Matthew 6:10
This particular battle is already won but needs to be implemented seriously by those that have found the Light!
From the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and violent men take it by force. Matthew 11:12
Broken Foundations-Desensitized to Sin
If the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do?” Psalm 11:3
The challenge that we face in the 21st Century is the broken foundations in nearly every area of life – In marriage, in relationships between parents and children, in the use of money, in education, in the media, in manners and of course in beliefs.
Foundations are so destroyed that we call what is good, bad and what is bad, good. We have been desensitized to sin and to ungodliness. Our senses have been bombarded with filth coming from media, newspapers, radio, TV, internet, cell phones, billboards etc. There is so much of it that we have accommodated filthy language, dirty thinking, dirty joking, rebellion against authorities, disobedience to parents, fornication, incest, immorality, greed, homosexuality, abortions, corruption in politics, divorces and so much more. This is happening not only in what we call “the world” but inside of our ranks as well, right here in what is supposed to be the holiest, purest and most powerful group of people on earth- The believers in the Messiah!
But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, aholy nation, a people for God’s own possession, so that you may proclaim the excellencies of Him who has called you out of darkness into His marvelous light. 1 Peter 2:9
The battle is so “Titanic” that one must be a hero not to succumb to it. One must be 100% committed to the Messiah and disciplined in prayer, the Word, fellowship, praying in tongues, spiritual warfare, worship and declaration of the Word instead of circumstances.
For the mind set on the flesh is death, but the mind set on the Spirit is life and peace, 7 because the mind set on the flesh is hostile toward God; for it does not subject itself to the law of God, for it is not even able to do so, 8 and those who are in the flesh cannot please God. Romans 8: 6-8
Yes one has to be wholly devoted and surrender to the Holy Spirit 24/7 by talking to Yeshua continually, practicing His Presence, in order to maintain the anointing that destroys all yokes. We must learn to walk in the Spirit at all times, for if not darkness can easily engulf us! It is a huge battle but we are on the winning side! We must be aware though that the enemy knows that he has a short time and therefore he has come to attack the foundations of this generation more ferociously than ever. We cannot be oblivious to it or passive! We must learn to walk in the spirit and in obedience! He promised Israel that at times of great darkness Israel would shine with great Glory! In the same way everyone that is grafted into the Olive Tree with Israel! It is at the time of the greatest darkness that we will be covered in the greatest Glory!
Arise, shine; for your light has come, and the glory of YHVH has risen upon you. “For behold, darkness will cover the earth and deep darkness is over the peoples; but YHVH will rise upon you and His glory will appear upon you. Isaiah 60:1,2
FAITH IS THE KEY!
There is one powerful promise that can help us to arise above the darkness that is covering the earth,
When a man’s ways are pleasing to YHVH , He makes even his enemies to be at peace with him. Proverbs 16:7
How can we walk in such a way that pleases YHVH? We have to walk like our Father Abraham by Faith and not by sight!
Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. 2 For by it the men of old gained approval. Hebrews 11:1,2
Just like those saints of old we also gain approval and have the God of the Universe on our side when we choose to believe His Word and Goodness above all!
And without faith it is impossible to please Him, for He who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who seek Him. Hebrews 11:6
In spite of all the High Technological advances of humans and the quantities of impressive achievements, the Almighty is not moved by any one of them as much as He is moved by the Faith of those who love Him, obey Him and put their trust in Him alone. When He sees such faith He comes in with His Power and brings untold victories!
For the eyes of YHVH move to and fro throughout the earth that He may strongly support those whose heart is completely His. 2 Chronicles 16:9a
When we walk by faith we do not depend on circumstances and we are not led by the media or our own needs. The only thing that is in front of us is the Word of Promise and the Word of Instruction of the Almighty! Yes! El Shadai has given us amazing promises and also powerful instructions in His Word. He also keeps on giving us promises and instructions as we fellowship with the Holy Spirit who interprets Yah’s Word to us. So in order to please the Father and have all our enemies at peace with us, in order to defeat the enemy at the gate (of our eyes, ears, mouth and heart!) we must walk by Faith believing His Word and Good Character against all odds! Believing only the Truth of His Word as reality and relating to the passing circumstances of life as temporary. When we spend all our day seeking Him (as we walk, as we drive, as we work etc.) and meditating on His Word and Goodness our gates will be open to the Kingdom of Heaven and closed to the hell that is flooding this world daily from all sides!
I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; and whatever you bind on earth shall have been bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall have been loosed in heaven. Matthew 16:19
We must use the Keys of the Kingdom and BIND the enemy! But what does “bind” mean? It means to FORBID. That is right, we have to forbid the influx of filth from touching our soul and mind and the only way to do it besides saying “I bind you satan” is actually putting on the LIGHT inside of you as you spend 24/7 with your mind on things above!
Set your mind on the things above, not on the things that are on earth. Colossians 3:2
Once the light inside of us is bright and clear, all darkness (and it does not matter how thick) must flee! Light is stronger than darkness and truth is stronger than lies! There is no comparison between Yeshua and satan. We must know this, because the biggest, fattest and most common lie is that satan is too strong for us; that disease, poverty, immorality, the media and whatever, is too strong for a “normal” believer! Beloved “normal” believers and even the smallest one among us is greater than Yochanan, John the Baptizer!
Truly I say to you, among those born of women there has not arisen anyone greater than John the Baptist! Yet the one who is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he. Matthew 11:11
The Word of our Abba tells us that those that are redeemed by Him have a supernatural ability to be strong though they are naturally weak and to multiply though there are many obstructions!
The smallest one will become a thousand, and the least one a mighty nation.
I, YHVH, will hasten it in its time. Isaiah 60:22
SPEECH ACTIVATED FAITH-WHAT ARE YOU SAYING?
I loved at the start of my walk with Yeshua, the song that says “let the weak say I am strong, let the poor say I am rich, let the blind say I can see, because of what the Lord has done for me”. The key for this victorious walk is in the SAY. We can have whatever we SAY.
22 And Yeshua answered saying to them, “Have faith in God. 23 Truly I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says is going to happen, it will be granted him. Mark 11:22, 23
So what are we saying? And when we pray, are we praying in faith?
Therefore I say to you, all things for which you pray and ask, believe that you have received them, and they will be granted you. Mark 11:24
Before anything manifests in the natural we know that we have already received it! That is faith!
Before we bought the Eilat Prayer Tower, in fact before I signed the contract I had already written a flyer saying “we have signed the contract” and I did not have any money for it in my hands yet! Kingdom reality manifests when People of Faith bring the Kingdom down from the Heavenly realm to the earthly realm by their prayers of faith and words of faith!
Then Elohim said, “light be”; and light was. Genesis 1:3 from Hebrew
Remember that the thickest darkness was pierced right at Creation when Elohim SAID “Light BE!” and Light was! Yeshua is the Word made flesh and He only SAID what He heard His Father speak. If it was good for Him, it is good for me! I am sure that He spoke not one word of unbelief though He was pure and truthful all the time. The Truth that He lived in, is the Truth of the Heavenly Kingdom and not the reality of hell on earth due to the Adamic induced curse. He knew that this “hellish reality” can be changed to Heaven on Earth by the Power of His walk and talk. That is why He preached, healed and cast out devils all the time. So can we, because believe me we are equipped with all that we need to win the Battle of the Ages and present our Father with a multitude of newly born children!
If you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible to you. Matthew 17:20
Walk in the Light, Talk in the Light, Stay in the Light and spread the Light!
We are the winners in the Battle of the Ages!
Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do, he will do also; and greater works than these he will do; because I go to the Father. John 14:12
