In case you missed Friday’s live show on Fox News, THIS IS A MUST SEE


   Pray without ceasing for the Saints who are suffering, remember them day and night in your prayers. Fear not in all things, for Christ is always triumphant – Trust in Him always and God Bless Israel.

But the end of all things is at hand; therefore be serious and watchful in your prayers.  And above all things have fervent love for one another, for “love will cover a multitude of sins “Finally, brethren, pray for us, that the word of the Lord may run swiftly and be glorified, just as it is with you.” 2 Thes. 3:1, 1 Peter 4:7-8

IS ALLAH THE SAME GOD AS THE GOD OF THE CHRISTIANS AND JEWS ? “MUSLIMS, JEWS AND CHRISTIANS WORSHIP THE SAME GOD”

Comments 6 Standard

The title above is straight from America’s World History Books taught in every public school. It is also spoken by Muslims so we would, as they request, worship no other god but Allah, but is this the same God? Are the words we hear true? We will go straight to the source to discover the truth. No opinions, no theories, no lies. We will go straight to the quran/koran and the bible and see if these words are  true.

Not knowing the truth is detrimental to your life, the generations to come and the future of your country. The masses are told and the children are taught that Allah of Islam is the same God of the ‘People of the book’ aka Christians and Jews. It is important that you make sure you know the truth because lack of knowledge can destroy your very soul. Please tell your children, your grandchildren and your family the truth I will share below. I have seen much confusion on this and knowing the truth will clear up any confusion. There is a scheme to turn all to Allah and since so many Christians and church goers don’t read or study the bible, they will never know the truth – they will be those in the last days that will be easily deceived, but today we can change that.

To accept and believe in Allah as  the one true God is to reject God’s Son

The Quran says that Allah has no son, in fact, it is blasphemy to say he has a son
Allah says that Jesus was only a messenger; a son of Mary. Their book teaches that Jesus was a prophet sent from Allah to deceive Christians, that Jesus was never crucified, it was only made to appear that way. Quran Surah (Chapter) 171,5:35,43:81-82, 30, 4:157, 4:142,4:159

That they said (in boast), “We killed Christ Jesus the son of Mary, the Messenger of Allah”;- but they killed him not, nor crucified him, but so it was made to appear to them, and those who differ therein are full of doubts, with no (certain) knowledge, but only conjecture to follow, for of a surety they killed him not: Verily, the hypocrites seek to deceive Allah, but it is He Who deceives them. And there is none from the People of the Scripture but that he will surely believe in Jesus before his death. And on the Day of Resurrection he will be against them a witness The Christian say, ‘The Messiah is the son of God.’ These are but baseless assertions made in earlier times by those who deny the truth. May God destroy them 9:30

The bible tells us that anyone who denies that God has a Son has the spirit of Antichrist, anyone who does not acknowledge the truth of Jesus is a deceiver and the antichrist: Who is the liar? It is whoever denies that Jesus is the Christ. Such a person is the antichrist–denying the Father and the Son. But if someone claims to be a prophet and does not acknowledge the truth about Jesus, that person is not from God. Such a person has the spirit of the Antichrist, which you heard is coming into the world and indeed is already here. I say this because many deceivers, who do not acknowledge Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh, have gone out into the world. Any such person is the deceiver and the antichrist. 1 John 2:22, 1 John 4:3 and 2 John 1:7

• 1 John 2:22 And who is a liar? Anyone who says that Jesus is not the Christ. Anyone who denies the Father and the Son is an antichrist.
• 1 John 4:3 But if someone claims to be a prophet and does not acknowledge the truth about Jesus, that person is not from God. Such a person has the spirit of the Antichrist, which you heard is coming into the world and indeed is already here.
• 2 John 1:7 I say this because many deceivers have gone out into the world. They deny that Jesus Christ came in a real body. Such a person is a deceiver and an antichrist.

We were forewarned of this

In 2 Corinthians 11:3-5 and Galatians 1:6-9 we are told to beware, lest we also be deceived as Eve was, of anyone who preaches another Jesus or if you receive a different spirit that you have not received or a different gospel- DO NOT ACCEPT IT, DO NOT PUT UP WITH IT. Beware of those who pervert the gospel – even if an angel from heaven preach another gospel to you, let him be accursed. Listen carefully : if anyone preaches any other gospel to you than what you have received, let him be accursed!

Does God have a Son?

Let’s stop and go back to the scripture of the prophets and Torah – before Jesus was born. What did Israel know? What was written in their holy scriptures?

1. Solomon tells us in Proverbs 30:4 that God has a son (fulfilled Matt 27:54, 1 John 5:13, Rev 2:18, John 3:19, John 1:1-3)
2. Isaiah 7:14 tells us a virgin will conceive and His name will mean ‘God with us” Immanuel, He will be a ruler and a priest (fulfilled Matthew 1:23)
3. David said God has a Son in Psalm 2:4-12 and His inheritance would be the ends of the earth (Matthew 1:23)
4. Isaiah 9:6-7 tells us a Son will be given, His name will be called wonderful, counselor, mighty God, everlasting father, prince of peace

What do we know about this Son? What was foretold before His coming?

1. He would be born in Bethlehem. Micah 5:2 (fulfilled Matthew 2:1)
2. He will come riding upon a donkey, He is just and bringing salvation Zechariah 9:9(fulfilled John 12. Matthew 21)
3. The price they appraised Him at was 30 pieces of silver Zach 11:12 (fulfilled Matthew 27:3. Matthew 24:14-16)
4. The money was to be cast to the potter in the house of the Lord Zech 11:13 (fulfilled Matthew 27:10)
5. His hands would be wounded in the house of his friends. Zechariah 13:6 (fulfilled Mark 15:20, John 19, John 20:26-27)
6. He would be oppressed, afflicted, would open not his mouth as a lamb to the slaughter Isaiah 53:7 ( fulfilled Mark 15, John 19, Luke 23)
7. His grave was with the wicked and with the rich in death because he had done no violence neither was their deceit in His mouth Isaiah 53;9 (Matthew 27, Mark 15)
8. His hands and feet would be pierced. Psalm 22:12 (fulfilled Mark 15:20, John 19, John 20:26-27)
9. Daniel prophesied the exact days until his triumphant arrival. March 445BC – April 32AD) Daniel 9:25

Chuck Misler did the math on these 8 prophecies and the chances of one man fulfilling all eight prophecies 1 in 100000000000000000000000000000 – that’s 28 zeros behind the 10. That would be like putting a mark on one silver dollar and mix it with others – enough to fill the entire earth all the way up to the moon. The chances of the one silver dollar you pick up to be the one with the mark on it is the same chance that one man – Jesus Christ- 1 in 100000000000000000000000000000 would fulfill all 8 of the above prophecies. (Cosmic Codes by Chuck Misler) There are only 8 prophecies listed above, but there are over 300 prophecies in the Old Testament of Jesus.

Daniel prophesied the exact days until his triumphant arrival. Daniel 9:25
“Know therefore and understand,
That from the going forth of the command
To restore and build Jerusalem (March 445 BC)
Until Messiah the Prince, (April 32AD)
There shall be seven weeks and sixty-two weeks; (477 years=68.14 weeks- difference is days March 14- to entry in April)
The street shall be built again, and the wall,
Even in troublesome times.
26 “And after the sixty-two weeks
Messiah shall be cut off, but not for Himself;
And the people of the prince who is to come
Shall destroy the city and the sanctuary.
The end of it shall be with a flood,
And till the end of the war desolations are determined.
27 Then he shall confirm a covenant with many for one week;
But in the middle of the week
He shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering.
And on the wing of abominations shall be one who makes desolate,
Even until the consummation, which is determined,
Is poured out on the desolate.”

God loves the Jewish people : “ I have loved you with an everlasting love;Therefore with lovingkindness I have drawn you.4 Again I will build you, and you shall be rebuilt,
O virgin of Israel! Jer 31:1-4
Allah hates/despises the Jews : 5:60-65Say “Shall I inform you of something worse than that, regarding the recompense from Allah: those (Jews) who incurred the Curse of Allah and His Wrath, those of whom (some) He transformed into monkeys and swines, those who worshipped Taghut (false deities); such are worse in rank (on the Day of Resurrection in the Hell-fire), and far more astray from the Right Path (in the life of this world). The Jews say: “Allah’s hand is tied up.” Be their hands tied up and be they accursed for the (blasphemy) they utter. Nay, both His hands are widely outstretched: He giveth and spendeth (of His bounty) as He pleaseth. But the revelation that cometh to thee from Allah increaseth in most of them their obstinate rebellion and blasphemy. Amongst them we have placed enmity and hatred till the Day of Judgment. Every time they kindle the fire of war, Allah doth extinguish it; but they (ever) strive to do mischief on earth. And Allah loveth not those who do mischief. And if only the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians) had believed (in Muhammad SAW) and warded off evil (sin, ascribing partners to Allah) and had become Al-Muttaqun (the pious – see V.2:2) We would indeed have blotted out their sins and admitted them to Gardens of pleasure (in Paradise). Anyone who does not believe, Allah has put a disease in their hearts : http://quran.com/search?q=disease+heart

ARE MUSLIMS PEACE LOVING? Verses from the Quran: “Unbelievers are your enemies” Surah 4:101 “Rouse them to fight for they are without understanding. 8:65 You cannot have a prisoner of war until you have subdued the land 8:67. You must fight all who fight allah 2S196And slay them wherever ye catch 2S191 Fight them and allah will punish them by your hands 9:14 Fighting is prescribed for you, and ye dislike it. But it is possible that ye dislike a thing that is good for you, and that you love a think that is bad for you. 2S216 Fight the cause of Allah to him who fighteth in the cause of allah soon shall we give him a reward of great value 474 Fight allahs cause 484 Seize them and slay them wherever you get them, we have provided you with a clear argument against them. 491 fight those who believe not in allah nor the law even if they are people of the book, until they pay the jizyah with willing submission and feel subdued 929 when you meet unbelievers in fight, smite at their necks, at length when ye have thoroughly subdued them, bind a bond firmly on them. Those who are slain in the way of a. he will never let their deeds be lost Surah 473-4. Allah loves those who fight his cause Surah 61:4 and the people of the book , did a cast terror in their hearts, so some you slew, and some you made prisoners. Suah 31 “Indeed, the penalty for those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger and strive upon earth [to cause] corruption is none but that they be killed or crucified or that their hands and feet be cut off from opposite sides or that they be exiled from the land. That is for them a disgrace in this world; and for them in the Hereafter is a great punishment Surah 5 33
Jesus taught:  “ I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust. For if you love those who love you, what reward have you? Do not even the tax collectors do the same? And if you greet your brethren only, what do you do more than others? Do not even the tax collectors do so? Therefore you shall be perfect, just as your Father in heaven is perfect.

BEWARE! BEWARE! BEWARE! YOU MUST WARN EVERYONE AROUND YOU – it may seen insignificant to many, but the souls of many are about to fall to eternal destruction.

GOD SAVE ISRAEL! GOD BLESS ISRAEL! GOD SAVE YOUR PEOPLE AND MAY THOSE WHO HAVE BEEN DECEIVED OPEN THEIR EYES AND FIND THEIR SALVATION IN CHRIST JESUS, THE SON OF GOD, IMMANUEL.

FOR GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD THAT HE GAVE HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON, THAT WHOSEOVER WOULD BELIEVE IN HIM WOULD NOT PERISH BUT HAVE ETERNAL LIFE, John 3:16

I will bless the Lord, O my soul Psalm 103

Comments 4 Standard

Psalm 103
Bless the Lord, O my soul; And all that is within me, bless His holy name!
Bless the Lord, O my soul, And forget not all His benefits:
Who forgives all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases,

Who redeems your life from destruction,Who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies,
Who satisfies your mouth with good things, So that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

The Lord executes righteousness and justice for all who are oppressed.
He made known His ways to Moses,His acts to the children of Israel.
The Lord is merciful and gracious,Slow to anger, and abounding in mercy.
He will not always strive with us, Nor will He keep His anger forever.
 He has not dealt with us according to our sins, Nor punished us according to our iniquities.

For as the heavens are high above the earth, So great is His mercy toward those who fear Him;
As far as the east is from the west, So far has He removed our transgressions from us.

As a father pities his children, So the Lord pities those who fear Him.
For He knows our frame; He remembers that we are dust.

As for man, his days are like grass;As a flower of the field, so he flourishes.
For the wind passes over it, and it is gone ,And its place remembers it no more.
But the mercy of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting On those who fear Him,
And His righteousness to children’s children, To such as keep His covenant,And to those who remember His commandments to do them.

The Lord has established His throne in heaven, And His kingdom rules over all.

Bless the Lord, you His angels, Who excel in strength, who do His word,Heeding the voice of His word.
Bless the Lord, all you His hosts,You ministers of His, who do His pleasure.
Bless the Lord, all His works, In all places of His dominion. Bless the Lord, O my soul!

  Yes, today I will bless the Lord. Even though annoying things try to interfere, the words of rude people try to shake me, I will still bless the Lord. I feel like a memo went out to the world : “make her life difficult in every way” – that’s how the last two weeks have felt. How can I have so much interference everywhere I turn? Why isn’t everything going my way? Why are the simplistic things turning into long dragged out trials? Why am I dealing with so many problems?  Whatever! I’m going to bless the Lord and refuse to be brought down.

   I will bless the Lord, with all my soul and forget not His benefits. I will lift my head up and wait for my King. He forgives all my sins and heals all my diseases, He redeems my life from destruction and crowns me with loving kindness and tender mercies. How awesome is that?!? He makes all my problems disappear as I refocus. I will rejoice for this is the day that the Lord has made. He will strengthen me and renew my youth  like the eagles. Amen, it just doesn’t get any better than that.

The 8 Requests of Esther :The Persistence, Courage, Boldness and Authority of the Bride

Comments 2 Standard
  1.  Esther requests a 3 day fast of all the Jewish people of Susa. No food, no water for 3 days and 3 nights. Esther 4
  2. Ester boldly goes before the King to request that he and Haman attend a banquet the that day that she prepared for them. Esther 5:4
  3. At the banquet, she requests that the king and Haman attend another banquet that she will prepare the next day
  4.  She asks the king , pleading for her life and the life of her people “If I have found favor in your sight, O king, and if it pleases the king, let my life be given me at my petition, and my people at my request.  For we have been sold, my people and I, to be destroyed, to be killed, and to be annihilated. Had we been sold as male and female slaves, I would have held my tongue, although the enemy could never compensate for the king’s loss”
  5.  Esther asks the king to stop Haman’s orders and the scheme he has devised against the Jews. “Now Esther spoke again to the king, fell down at his feet, and implored him with tears to counteract the evil of Haman the Agagite, and the scheme which he had devised against the Jews.”
  6. Esther asks the king to write a letter for her and her people to revoke the letters and words that Haman sent out to destroy the Jews.
  7. Esther asks the king for permission, that the Jewish people be given another day to defend themselves – asks for another day. Then Esther said, “If it pleases the king, let it be granted to the Jews who are in Shushan to do again tomorrow according to today’s decree, and let Haman’s ten sons be hanged on the gallows.”
  8. Esther asks the king to let Haman’s 10 sons be hanged in the gallows.

Every time I read the book of Esther, I learn something new. As I read Esther this past week, her persistence, her boldness, her courage and her authority stood out to me. It reminded me as we, the bride of Christ. should be. We can ask for anything in His name, He has given us spiritual warfare over our enemy, He tells us to be courageous and bold at all times, never to be fearful or full of worry. It reminds me of how we, because of Jesus, can go before our King without fear of death. Esther could have been killed immediately but she had the king’s grace.

God wants us to be bold and courageous. He has made us His bride, He made a life giving way so we, like Esther, can go before the Lord’s throne without fear of death, but knowing that He loves us dearly. Lately, when I pray, I stop and think …”uh, maybe I’m bothering Him, maybe I shouldn’t ask for too much, maybe I won’t ask”,however, when I look at the boldness of Esther I think – wow! She asked for it all! She was fearless! She could have stopped when she had her life spared, but no, she pushed it. She asked for the life of every Jew to be spared. Then she asked for more – she asked the king to revoke the order that was sent out, she asked for the impossible. When she got that request granted, she asked for even more. Haman , the wicked, was killed but that wasn’t enough. Esther wanted all 10 of his sons put to death. She asked and asked, and each time she could have been killed, but her persistence saved a nation. Her persistence and her boldness amaze me.

Esther prepared herself before she presented herself to the king

This is an interesting lesson, although I believe we can go before the Lord at anytime (Read Nehemiah and see all his short prayers continually in his days).  Esther made sure she was perfectly beautiful with careful consideration of her garments before she went to see the King. Esther and her people fasted for 3 days and nights before she went to the king. Before she was crowned queen, she spent 12 months preparing herself. I believe Esther was always prepared and beautiful before she stood before the king.
We also should be ready before our king (and always ready for His return). We should check our heart as David did , “Search me O Lord and show me is there is any wicked way in me”. Stop and consider our ways and our doings. Sometimes, before I pray, I ask the Lord to show me anything in me that goes against Him. I also recite Psalm 131: Lord, my heart is not prideful, my mind is not haughty : I stop to think: have I been prideful? Have I looked down on anyone? Have I been loving to everyone around me? Is there anyone I have offended? Do I hold any grudges, bitterness or unforgiveness in my heart? Is there anyone I have hurt with my words?

We are the beautiful bride of Christ, He is coming soon. Will He find us spotless as we should be? Will He find us ready and waiting for Him? He died for our sins, but he didn’t die so we stop considering our ways. In 1 Corinthians 11:27-32, it says : Therefore whoever eats this bread or drinks this cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord. But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of the bread and drink of the cup. For he who eats and drinks in an unworthy manner eats and drinks judgment to himself, not discerning the Lord’s body. For this reason many are weak and sick among you, and many sleep. 31 For if we would judge ourselves, we would not be judged. 32 But when we are judged, we are chastened by the Lord, that we may not be condemned with the world.   – maybe people see this verse in a different way than I do, but I believe it is telling us to stop and examine our ways – all the time. Repent is written in the New testament 55x, why have so many thrown that concept away? No sin can come before the Lord, He is too holy – we need to make sure no sin is lurking in our heart.

I like the way Jeremiah says it : Stop and look around, ask for the right way to go and travel it’s path. Sometimes we need to stop and check ourselves – is my life, my religion, my ways, my words in line with the word of God? Am I living in obedience to Him in love or have I made my own way? Do I search for righteousness or have I become lukewarm in my walk? Have I let the worries of the world, money, and fear of people pull me from the truth of God’s word?

Jeremiah 6:16
  This is what the LORD says:
“Stop at the crossroads and look around.
Ask for the old, godly way, and walk in it.
Travel its path, and you will find rest for your souls.
But you reply, ‘No, that’s not the road we want

Let’s stop and consider our ways: (Galations 5:16- and 1 Corinthians 13)
Am I walking in the Spirit? Does my life show the fruit of:
• Love?
• Joy?
• Peace?
• Longsuffering?
• Kindness?
• Goodness?
• Gentleness?
• Self control?
• Have I crucified my flesh with it’s passions and desires?
Am I walking in love?
• Do I envy?
• Am I prideful?
• Am I rude?
• Am I selfish?
• Do I demand my own way?
• Am I easily angered when provoked?
• Do I rejoice in evil?

“Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; 5 does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; 6 does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; 7 bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.8 Love never fails. But whether there are prophecies, they will fail; whether there are tongues, they will cease; whether there is knowledge, it will vanish away. 9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part. 10 But when that which is perfect has come, then that which is in part will be done away.” 1 Cor 13

 Persistence in Prayer and Requests

“ pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you 1 Thes 5:16-18

Persistence is found throughout the bible, but remember – God has the final answer. Paul requested that he be set free from a thorn in his side, but it was not granted. Jesus plead before God if there was any way that his cup might be taken from Him – but said – let Your Will be done. Persistence pays off, but God word stands forever y ya!

I like the way Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego put it. They were about to be thrown into a fiery fire pit and said to the king:
“O Nebuchadnezzar, we have no need to answer you in this matter. If that is the case, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and He will deliver us from your hand, O king. But if not, let it be known to you, O king, that we do not serve your gods, nor will we worship the gold image which you have set up. Daniel 3:16
They said, God can and will deliver us, “but if not” let it be known, we worship no other God. That is a good attitude to have. God can and will deliver me, but if not, then I lift my hands and Praise my God, for He is my redeemer, the One who see’s me. He is my All sufficient One.

The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much. James 5:16b

In Luke 18:1-6, Jesus tells us a parable of a woman who came with request before an unjust judge. I love this parable, it shows us the value of persistence (and it reminds me of myself):

     Then He spoke a parable to them, that men always ought to pray and not lose heart, 2 saying: “There was in a certain city a judge who did not fear God nor regard man. 3 Now there was a widow in that city; and she came to him, saying, ‘Get justice for me from my adversary.’ 4 And he would not for a while; but afterward he said within himself, ‘Though I do not fear God nor regard man, 5 yet because this widow troubles me I will avenge her, lest by her continual coming she weary me.’”
6 Then the Lord said, “Hear what the unjust judge said. 7 And shall God not avenge His own elect who cry out day and night to Him, though He bears long with them? 8 I tell you that He will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will He really find faith on the earth?”

Jesus specifically tells us that we should always be praying and never lose heart. We could go on and on about the many stories of persistence throughout the bible: Sarah, Ezekiel, Jeremiah, David, Noah, so many, many more. So don’t give up no matter what struggle you are in.

Notice in the verse from Daniel below, the man in linen tells Daniel that his prayers were heard but there was spiritual interference when the answer was sent – so never give up, you don’t know what’s going on in the spiritual world. Pray without ceasing:

Then he said to me, “Do not fear, Daniel, for from the first day that you set your heart to understand, and to humble yourself before your God, your words were heard; and I have come because of your words. 13 But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me twenty-one days; and behold, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me, for I had been left alone there with the kings of Persia. 14 Now I have come to make you understand what will happen to your people in the latter days, for the vision refers to many days yet to come.”

More Scripture that reminds us to pray without ceasing- persistence in prayer:

• Romans 1:9 For God is my witness, whom I serve with my spirit in the gospel of His Son, that without ceasing I make mention of you always in my prayers,
• Ephesians 1:16 do not cease to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers:
• Colossians 1:9 [ Preeminence of Christ ] For this reason we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to ask that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding;
• 1 Thessalonians 5:17 pray without ceasing,
• 2 Timothy 1:3 [ Timothy’s Faith and Heritage ] I thank God, whom I serve with a pure conscience, as my forefathers did, as without ceasing I remember you in my prayers night and day,

Authority of Mordecai and Esther

Mordecai made the final say in the letters. “ Then Queen Esther, the daughter of Abihail, with Mordecai the Jew, wrote with full authority to confirm this second letter about Purim. 30 And Mordecai sent letters to all the Jews, to the one hundred and twenty-seven provinces of the kingdom of Ahasuerus, with words of peace and truth, 31 to confirm these days of Purim at their appointed time, as Mordecai the Jew and Queen Esther had prescribed for them, and as they had decreed for themselves and their descendants concerning matters of their fasting and lamenting. 32 So the decree of Esther confirmed these matters of Purim, and it was written in the book.”
Esther wrote, with full authority, to confirm the 2nd letter of Purim to the appointed times to remember this day. Not only was Esther persistent and bold (but always in reverence), she also had authority. Aren’t we told we have authority in Christ. Just like Ester had full authority from the king to call out orders, so we have authority in Christ Jesus and all authority comes from God alone (Romans 13:1)

Authority over the enemy:

I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you. Luke 10:19

Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age,[c] against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. 13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
14 Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, 15 and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; 18 praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints— 19 and for me, that utterance may be given to me, that I may open my mouth boldly to make known the mystery of the gospel, 20 for which I am an ambassador in chains; that in it I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak. Ephesians 6:11-19

And so my final word to you today is Walk in the Spirit and you will not fulfill the lusts of the flesh which are :adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness,  idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries. Anything you do, that you know is wrong, is a sin. People who walk in this manner will not inherit the kingdom of God, but dear brothers and sisters – turn from your ways and walk no longer in the flesh and fellowship with this world.
Let the fruit of the Spirit be evident in your life, that is: love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,  gentleness and self-control.
Take up your cross, be bold, be courageous, don’t let the words of others knock you down. Stand unshakable in Christ Jesus looking forward always to His glorious return. Amen and Amen!
