Luk 21:25 ¶ And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;
Luk 21:26 Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.
ME: the powers of heaven are "spiritual powers" hence spiritual warfare is within us: The inner man will be revealed ON EARTH and become the "NEW MAN"
Luk 21:27 And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.
Luk 21:28 And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.
look up is the word "anakypto" (ana means 'each and every man) and kypto means stoop down, bend forward, bow the head:
together they are defined "to raise or lift oneself up", ones soul, exalted, elevated:
why up when you bow down? You are upside down and need to reach the floor or bottom of your soul, which is really the "ROOT" where Christ is able to graft you into himself to lift you up:
bottom line, the world is passing away and everything in it
why look at the world? God already told us it was passing away:
the spirit of the world is antichrist: so what is passing away is antichrist:
this is good news
this is why we are told to LOOK UP and not out there
the world can NOT receive the things of truth:
Jhn 14:14 If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do [it].
Jhn 14:15 ¶ If ye love me, keep my commandments.
Jhn 14:16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;
Jhn 14:17 [Even] the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.
but the spirit of truth which is the comforter will come to us because we DO KNOW HIM and he dwells with us and WILL be in us when that time comes.........and for some it has come and is coming to many more ......
Jhn 14:18 I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.
1Jo 4:1 ¶ Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.
1Jo 4:2 Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God:
ME: the spirit that CONFESSES (says the same thing as) that Jesus Christ "IS COME" (present tense) not past tense, but NOW.........is come in the flesh is of God:
1Jo 4:3 And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that [spirit] of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.
1Jo 4:4 Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.
1Jo 4:5 They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them.
1Jo 4:6 We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.
1Jo 4:7 ¶ Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.
1Jo 4:8 He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.
1Jo 4:9 In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.
1Jo 4:10 Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son [to be] the propitiation for our sins.
1Jo 4:11 Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another.
1Jo 4:12 ¶ No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us.
1Jo 4:13 Hereby know we that we dwell in him, and he in us, because he hath given us of his Spirit.
1Jo 4:14 And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son [to be] the Saviour of the world.
1Jo 4:15 Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God.
1Jo 4:16 And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.
1Jo 4:17 ¶ Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world.
1Jo 4:18 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.
1Jo 4:19 We love him, because he first loved us.
the second commandment that PERFECTS US IN LOVE .....is to love our neighbor as ourselves:
1Jo 4:20 ¶ If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen?
1Jo 4:21 And this commandment have we from him, That he who loveth God love his brother also.
THE love of God in us enables us to love our brothers and our neighbors as ourselves:
the love is given and it does its perfect work............IN US:
why look at the world? God already told us it was passing away:
the spirit of the world is antichrist: so what is passing away is antichrist:
this is good news
The prophecies aren't given just for people like you.
They are for anyone who is able to believe in Jesus the Son of GOD.
1 John 5:13
13 These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.
"and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God"
The problem is Yvonne, they don't believe Jesus ever existed.
You can't teach about Heaven and Spirituality when bypassing Jesus the Son of GOD.
I know we are not on the same page Sister, but please listen. Teaching the blissfulness of Heavenly thoughts will not help anyone, without teaching True worldly prophecy of what is happening and going to happen.
I love your heart Yvonne, your intentions are wonderful.
But I think it needs to be based in Jesus as a real separate being who is the begotten Son of GOD. And we, children who desire to be adopted into the family.
And I don't think everyone is a child of GOD, Jesus made that very clear.
Here is a good guideline Yvonne; 2 Peter 2:20
20 For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning.
21 For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them.
22 But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire.
Teaching peace in Truth will harm them more, then if they didn't know Truth at all. That is a responsibility of YOU and ME Yvonne. If they reject Jesus don't make them enter more suffering then they would. That would be careless wouldn't it?.... That is why prophecy is so important, its for everyone. Prophecy of what is going to happen in the WORLD, not within.
"and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God"
That is enough to not be condemned and avoid the Mark of the Beast.
Prepare them Yvonne, for what is soon to happen in the WORLD AROUND THEM, not in them.
31 Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is like to a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and sowed in his field:
32 Which indeed is the least of all seeds: but when it is grown, it is the greatest among herbs, and becometh a tree, so that the birds of the air come and lodge in the branches thereof.
44 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto treasure hid in a field; the which when a man hath found, he hideth, and for joy thereof goeth and selleth all that he hath, and buyeth that field.
"The kingdom is within you"...means there is a seed within you...when that seed begins to grow and becomes a fruitful vine...rooted in the true vine...all the prophecy in the bible becomes crystal clear.
And it isn't what you think...it isn't gloom and doom and disaster...what comes next is the world-to-come...descending from the sky, as a bride adorned for her husband. Jeremiah 29:11
11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. Micah 4:3-5
3 And he shall judge among many people, and rebuke strong nations afar off; and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up a sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.
4 But they shall sit every man under his vine and under his fig tree; and none shall make them afraid: for the mouth of the LORD of hosts hath spoken it.
5 For all people will walk every one in the name of his god, and we will walk in the name of the LORD our God for ever and ever.
1 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.
2 And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
3 And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.
4And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
5 And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.
6 And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.
7 He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.
8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
The second death in the lake of fire is the baptism of the holy spirit...which is torture and death for the ego...but if the ego has already been killed...for those that wait under the altar for their brethren who must be killed as they were...it is nothing...these are the servants...kings and priests.
GOD shall wipe away all tears...no more death...all things new...HIS words ARE faithful and true! Revelation 22:1-10
1 And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb.
2 In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.
3And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him:
4 And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads.
5 And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever.
6 And he said unto me, These sayings are faithful and true: and the Lord God of the holy prophets sent his angel to shew unto his servants the things which must shortly be done.
7 Behold, I come quickly: blessed is he that keepeth the sayings of the prophecy of this book.
8 And I John saw these things, and heard them. And when I had heard and seen, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel which shewed me these things.
9 Then saith he unto me, See thou do it not: for I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren the prophets, and of them which keep the sayings of this book: worship God.
10 And he saith unto me, Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book: for the time is at hand. I know you do not realize it, Tim, but the time is actually finally at hand...and that which starts within us, that Yvonne so consistently describes and knows from personal experience (I am her witness because I know the workings of GOD within, too) will manifest outwardly when it is time. That is the seed of the kingdom growing into a fruitful vine...GOD plans good for everyone...whether they believe or not...they will be freed from death and sorrow. And when they are freed...the will easily and sincerely believe! Isaiah 45:17-25
17 But Israel shall be saved in the LORD with an everlasting salvation: ye shall not be ashamed nor confounded world without end.
18For thus saith the LORD that created the heavens; God himself that formed the earth and made it; he hath established it, he created it not in vain, he formed it to be inhabited: I am the LORD; and there is none else.
19 I have not spoken in secret, in a dark place of the earth: I said not unto the seed of Jacob, Seek ye me in vain: I the LORD speak righteousness, I declare things that are right.
20 Assemble yourselves and come; draw near together, ye that are escaped of the nations: they have no knowledge that set up the wood of their graven image, and pray unto a god that cannot save.
21 Tell ye, and bring them near; yea, let them take counsel together: who hath declared this from ancient time? who hath told it from that time? have not I the LORD? and there is no God else beside me; a just God and a Saviour; there is none beside me.
22Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else.
23 I have sworn by myself, the word is gone out of my mouth in righteousness, and shall not return, That unto me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear.
24 Surely, shall one say, in the LORD have I righteousness and strength: even to him shall men come; and all that are incensed against him shall be ashamed.
25In the LORD shall all the seed of Israel be justified, and shall glory.
if Christ is not within us, how will he COMFORT us, bring us the truth that sets us free?
August 28 2011, 10:18 AM
people have been going through the disasters that will come upon the whole world from the beginning of time:
you don't think the end of physical life that happens to thousands a day are any more real than what you imagine in your imagination about the end of your life?
walking in the light as he is in the light is OUR salvation:
just because you are scared of the end of the world doesn't mean it will drive anyone else into the arms of God: some might see this as Gods meanness rather than any kind of justice on his part:
if people aren't looking for more than this life has to offer, there is nothing that will bring them to God:
those who are looking to God to get more of what this life has to offer, are looking to him for the wrong reasons anyway.......he who seeks for his life shall loose it........only seeking to looose ones life (ego) for his sake will find it.......find the true life of the soul:
the soul that sins shall surely die and sin is missing the mark of the truth..........not missing how to move to a place where the bombs won't find you...
you love this life Tim and I don't knock you for that, but don't fool yourself into thinking this means you LOVE Jesus more than those who SEEK FOR HIM within their inner experience:
anyway.........here is what I wrote on faith today...........and faith is all that matters
not doomsaying............but faith in God:
the WORD is full of salvation and condemnation:
how we receive it is where we are at: God doesn't have to do anything else:
the WORD does its work in us and how we receive it explains where we have come to......or not:
the fear that others will not be saved only comes from not fully working out your own salvation........having faith for your own salvation:
not feeling love, only comes from not having Love since Love for others always, always, always comes right back to you........like a boomerang:
everything has to be received to "understand and 'know" so it can do its work and it does
if one believes that God sent his WORD to do its work and will not return void, then all we have to do is receive it and give our witness of how it works in us:
if we get stuck somewhere for 19 or 30 years, it is our lack of reception that brings us to the impasse:
faith even a little bit, is enough since faith is from God...........and having it enables God to both will and do in us of HIS good pleasure:
we don't have to "know" to use the faith we are given (authored in us):
yet faith does lead to knowledge (in hind sight) since faith reveals what God is doing and then we UNDERSTAND.........because we OBSERVED him in action:
asking for knowledge before faith only feels like more death since the scriptures without faith are a ministration of death (for the ego) but only faith gives life to the soul:
receiving by faith is the beginning and the END of the matter, hence Jesus is the author and finisher of our faith:
I knew this once without any knowledge............I didn't understand anything in the Bible and yet I had faith several times in my life for long periods of time (over a year) and thats a long time for someone to experience faith in God for all things.
Those were the best times in my life.......trusting God with all things
I kept loosing my faith because I was taken deeper and deeper into my heart but I didn't understand how everything that was hidden had to be revealed:
what I do know.....if you want revelation knowledge that bad................don't look for it..........the darkness or hidden parts don't reveal by looking for evil
evil only is revealed in the LIGHT.........so keep looking for good........and if you find evil.........know that GOOD OVERCOMES IT........thats faith
and it will keep overcoming it no matter how much evil is revealed:
but looking for evil is evil............and evil will not reveal itself in this way............it will just torment you
just keep looking for good and let God reveal all that is hidden and as he does, just keep being grateful that he is able to overcome all things in you through faith.........hence faith is the VICTORY that overcomes the world:
stay single minded
don't look for something that is NOT NATURALLY revealed by the Holy Spirit
and when evil comes, just PRAISE GOD that he made you strong enough in him to bear it so he can overcome it:
I know now that God is always pleased when we walk in faith, hope and love.............for this is how we walk together as ONE in the light as he is in the light
when this is how we walk, he will fight all our battles and we will see there is nothing to fear...........even when the fear of the Lord comes........we will know it is for our ultimate GOOD, hence PERFECT LOVE casts out fear
there are two kinds of fear in the Bible
the fear Satan puts in us and this is the fear of death.........thats what Paul explains
the fear of the Lord comes when the death is looked at and we realize it is but a shadow, and life swallows death continually......
thats when we receive the fear of the Lord but this is to overcome the fear of death: to overcome satan
but all in all, if we truly walk with the Lord, there is nothing he will not prepare us for and give us once he has us where he can move us deeper and closer to himself:
Im convinced with Paul that nothing can separate us from the LOVE OF CHRIST that he demonstrated by dying for us..........putting his SEED IN US to WAKEN us in due time............in the power of the first resurrection
at this point the 'second death' or overcoming all that exalts itself against the "knowledge of God" in us.........putting all enemies under our feet will be by the SAME FAITH that brought us to the end of our ego: Only NOW this faith will be the "Faith of the Son of God" in us but we will know it..........
knowing it does not replace having it............instead knowing this faith of the 'Son of God" eventually helps us realize that these three, faith hope and love are all that remains when everything else is complete in us:
the peace that passes knowledge..........comes from faith and faith is not only JUSTIFICATION (being justified by him), made JUST by his righteousness
but faith leads to sanctification for Israel within (our heart) and leads to glorification, being dressed in him, clothed in him inside (CHRIST) and outside (PUT ON THE Lord Jesus)
outside means we will be as he is in the world.............
inside it means we are his workmanship.............he builds our house by FORMING CHRIST IN US into Man (Jesus) by taking our desires and joining them to his GOOD WILL in us:
don't rush anything........just be where you are planted by the LORD and walk with him by FAITH.........FAITH.........keep asking for faith in God:
have faith in God...........
now that I KNOW in whom I have believed ............I still NEED faith
knowledge lets me know WHY I NEED FAITH
but before I KNEW..............I still needed faith...........so faith pleases God
knowledge only shows us WHY tis true
love however FILLS US UP...............
so, have faith that you will be able to RECEIVE all the love you need to be full of God:
what takes so long?
its like a nervous system that is cut off from its source and it can't feel the next place ................it walks without feeling it
receptors give you the "FEELING" that you are touching, tasting, seeing the thing sought for.......
the LIGHT IS always THERE.........GOD NEVER MOVES
but our ability to RECEIVE HIM is missing and we need faith to develop these receptors
faith is the power to develop the receptors that will SHOW US THE TRUTH that sets us free
but in my experience, knowing the truth set me free indeed..............but faith remains because even though I KNOW in whom I believe...........
I never know the next thing he has planned for me
so I will continue in faith, hope and love...........and the greatest is love because no matter what comes next,
LOVE moves me from the CENTER OF WHO I AM IN HIM and who he is in me:.
Re: if Christ is not within us, how will he COMFORT us, bring us the truth that sets us free?
August 29 2011, 6:47 PM
16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;
17 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.
18 I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.
26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.
