A very sobering message about Christians living in sin. We have to strive to enter through straight gate, it is not enough to believe in Jesus, we have to be changed by the Holy Spirit, fight the sin and the devil every day and live in holiness. This is great teaching without compromise by pastor David Wilkerson. Why we do not hear it in churches nowadays?
Why do not we hear about fasting or Sabbath devoted to God ( The Holy Spirit showed me a few years ago, that we are to respect the Sabbath ( which is one day a week devoted to God altogether ) and having rest after 6 days of work. We are to become more and more holy with the help of the Lord Jesus and the Holy Spirit in us.
Dear Christians, if you are struggling with your faith and do not trust God that He can take care of you, or you do not believe that you have power and authority over evil spirits which are in all criminals, murderers and all kinds of evil people, look at this video. God, our Father in heaven is getting us ready for Jesus Christ coming back, we will see more and more supernatural acts like this. God wants you to realize who you are in Christ. The Church of Christ is very powerful but lots of Christians do not know it. We have the same power of the Holy Spirit in us as the first apostles had, the same spirit of God, who raised Jesus from death, people have to wake up and believe it. God does not want us to be cowards and little scared mice, He said to Joshua, be bold, be courageous for I am with you wherever you go. God was very angry when people did not believe Him. Do you believe God or not? I see many Christians that sit in the churches and sings songs but in every day life they do not have faith, they battle depression, fear, anxiety, panic attacks, worry, hopelessness, suicidal thoughts, various diseases etc, they do not realize that they are under demonic attacks, the devil torments them freely as they have no knowledge, they do not believe in deliverance, they do not use the power given us by Jesus Christ, they suffer for years, take drugs, go to doctors, to psychologists, psychiatrists and all kinds of specialists,they believe in human knowledge but not in the power of God, whom they proclaim to worship. So what is the bible, how is it that Christians do not believe in what God says. Did He not say, I am your healer, deliverer, Savior, I am your help in troubles? Think about it and get hope, our God is mighty and the only things He wants from you is to love Him, to believe him and obey His commandments.
Check the well known story about Eli-ah and false prophets of Jezebel below.
17 When he saw Elijah, he asked, “Is it you—the biggest troublemaker in Israel?”
18 Elijah answered, “I have not made trouble in Israel. You and your father’s family have made all this trouble by not obeying the Lord’s commands. You have gone after the Baals. 19 Now tell all Israel to meet me at Mount Carmel. Also bring the four hundred fifty prophets of Baal and the four hundred prophets of Asherah, who eat at Jezebel’s table.”
20 So Ahab called all the Israelites and those prophets to Mount Carmel.21 Elijah approached the people and said, “How long will you not decide between two choices? If the Lord is the true God, follow him, but if Baal is the true God, follow him!” But the people said nothing.
22 Elijah said, “I am the only prophet of the Lord here, but there are four hundred fifty prophets of Baal. 23 Bring two bulls. Let the prophets of Baal choose one bull and kill it and cut it into pieces. Then let them put the meat on the wood, but they are not to set fire to it. I will prepare the other bull, putting the meat on the wood but not setting fire to it. 24 You prophets of Baal, pray to your god, and I will pray to the Lord. The god who answers by setting fire to his wood is the true God.”
All the people agreed that this was a good idea.
25 Then Elijah said to the prophets of Baal, “There are many of you, so you go first. Choose a bull and prepare it. Pray to your god, but don’t start the fire.”
26 So they took the bull that was given to them and prepared it. They prayed to Baal from morning until noon, shouting “Baal, answer us!” But there was no sound, and no one answered. They danced around the altar they had built.
27 At noon Elijah began to make fun of them. “Pray louder!” he said. “If Baal really is a god, maybe he is thinking, or busy, or traveling! Maybe he is sleeping so you will have to wake him!” 28 The prophets prayed louder, cutting themselves with swords and spears until their blood flowed, which was the way they worshiped. 29 The afternoon passed, and the prophets continued to act like this until it was time for the evening sacrifice. But no voice was heard; Baal did not answer, and no one paid attention.
30 Then Elijah said to all the people, “Now come to me.” So they gathered around him, and Elijah rebuilt the altar of the Lord, which had been torn down. 31 He took twelve stones, one stone for each of the twelve tribes, the number of Jacob’s sons. (The Lord changed Jacob’s name to Israel.) 32 Elijah used these stones to rebuild the altar in honor of the Lord. Then he dug a ditch around the altar that was big enough to hold about thirteen quarts of seed. 33 Elijah put the wood on the altar, cut the bull into pieces, and laid the pieces on the wood. 34 Then he said, “Fill four jars with water, and pour it on the meat and on the wood.” Then Elijah said, “Do it again,” and they did it again. Then he said, “Do it a third time,” and they did it the third time. 35 So the water ran off the altar and filled the ditch.
36 At the time for the evening sacrifice, the prophet Elijah went near the altar. “Lord, you are the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Israel,” he prayed. “Prove that you are the God of Israel and that I am your servant. Show these people that you commanded me to do all these things. 37 Lord, answer my prayer so these people will know that you, Lord, are God and that you will change their minds.”
38 Then fire from the Lord came down and burned the sacrifice, the wood, the stones, and the ground around the altar. It also dried up the water in the ditch. 39 When all the people saw this, they fell down to the ground, crying, “The Lord is God! The Lord is God!”
40 Then Elijah said, “Capture the prophets of Baal! Don’t let any of them run away!” The people captured all the prophets. Then Elijah led them down to the Kishon Valley, where he killed them.
The Rain Comes Again
41 Then Elijah said to Ahab, “Now, go, eat, and drink, because a heavy rain is coming.” 42 So King Ahab went to eat and drink. At the same time Elijah climbed to the top of Mount Carmel, where he bent down to the ground with his head between his knees.
43 Then Elijah said to his servant, “Go and look toward the sea.”
The servant went and looked. “I see nothing,” he said.
Elijah told him to go and look again. This happened seven times. 44 The seventh time, the servant said, “I see a small cloud, the size of a human fist, coming from the sea.”
Elijah told the servant, “Go to Ahab and tell him to get his chariot ready and go home now. Otherwise, the rain will stop him.”
45 After a short time the sky was covered with dark clouds. The wind began to blow, and soon a heavy rain began to fall. Ahab got in his chariot and started back to Jezreel. 46 The Lord gave his power to Elijah, who tightened his clothes around him and ran ahead of King Ahab all the way to Jezreel.
1 Kings 18.
Halleluyah! Praise the Lord! Praise the Lord Jesus for saving us from sin and the hands of the devil, and giving us all power and authority over the enemy. Thank you Lord Jesus, you are awesome!
IŞIK ABLA says NO MORE BEING A PEOPLE PLEASER! RATHER GOD PLEASER! I made my choice. What about you? I came to a point that I had to make a decision. Whether I have to please Christ or people. Whether I had to open my mouth to expose evil or stay quiet and watch the devil at work. There is a price tag to please God. There is also a price tag to stand up and speak up. The hate messages I receive daily are the evidence of I am not a people pleaser. When I was a Muslim, I was addicted to approval of others. I had a serious problem with rejection. Who doesn’t? I used to be a people pleaser. I was a slave of a false religion and under oppression. That all got me to a position of a door mat Until I said, ” No more”. Enough is enough. I prefer to speak the truth and please God than serve the enemy by being quiet. And it is so much easier to please God than people. It feels good to be in His will even though you are persecuted and insulted by many. There is freedom in Christ. Use your freedom to serve God rather than man. Wake up! Stand up! Speak up! The time has come!
Praise God, praise the Lord! Praise Him for people like her.
A very important message for those who want to seek Jesus Christ with all their heart, who do not want to be lukewarm but they really want to devote themselves to seek His face.
Do not be discouraged if the devil will comes after you and try to destroy you and your efforts in various ways. When it happened to me, I could not understand and got very exhausted, eventually gave up and was back in the world. But the Lord Jesus did not give up on me, He brought me back to my knees and showed me how serious the battle is, He filled me with His Holy Spirit so powerfully to teach me and show me the way like I had no idea it was even possible and not many people go through similar experience. I have come through all of this victorious and totally changed. Now the devil is scared of me since I know who I am in Christ. If you really want to know your God, stand fast and never give up on Jesus, the Lord of lords. God is in control, and He will use the devil to teach you and make your faith more precious than gold, He will take you through fire of testing, you must endure and trust Jesus, He knows what He is doing, He is training you to become as bold as a lion and to trust Him, no matter what. This message will show you how important it is to stand in the days of devilish attacks on you.
