    From One Form of Physical Enslavement to Another...

    Good Morning Good Morning Dear Friends...

    Well, the news, as it pertains to our investment is good... But I am going to comment on something that has been going on since Iraq was invaded back in 1991.. Which leads to our understanding of WHO is indeed in control of the affairs of the world... Having the final say has always been the RIGHT of our CREATOR as it pertains to the judgement of the nations...

    So while this world continues to be deceived by the Babylonian System that Satan controls, what we are seeing in Iraq is the final transition of the country going from one form of slave master, being their own people, to another who is outside this nation's borders... The whole world, and how it is governed has is based on a lie... As the devil has been deemed the "god of this world" within scripture (2 Corinthians chapter 4 verse 4), we see the results of a continued escalation of hedonistic behavior... Which only allows for Satan to enslave the lives of mankind from a spiritual perspective... This in turn translates into our physical world... For it has always begun from within the spirit in man...

    There is a form of "godliness" being promoted based on the liberty to practice sinful behavior... God is allowing for, and using these spiritual forces of darkness to discipline mankind for bad behavior so to speak... In the past God has overturned nations by using other nations as HIS ROD.. We see that HE is now allowing for an escalation in sin to show mankind what will ultimately transpire when we are left to our own devices apart from HIM... The influence of dark forces, or principalities has only grown in power as our world is made subject to pagan ideals, or Satanic principles... Principles that were once shunned by our Christian nation are now in the process of being embraced simply because of the lack of repentance for sinful behavior in accordance to our Creator's will...

    Remember dear brethren that this is a spiritual calling, and not a physical one... Spiritual Israel is the eternal family in Christ Jesus that supersedes our physical existence in every way... Those who are comprised of the body of Messiah, having been called in accordance to HIS purposes are neither Jew nor Greek, free or slave... Again those who have been called in accordance to God's purposes realize that we represent a kingdom that has not yet been established on this earth... It is a kingdom that is in heaven, which will begin a rule once Jesus Christ returns at the blowing of the 7th, and final trumpet of God's angel...

    So being entangled, or involved in the politics of our day is truly a waste of time.... Simply because the Word of God declares what will come to pass before we actually experience it... How is that for faith?... HUH!... For our hope is not in the flesh... Our Savior, while on the earth in the flesh, gave us an example of how to view, and conduct ourselves while on this earth as we await the coming of HIS eternal kingdom... He was not concerned about the overthrow of the Roman Empire of HIS day simply because it was not time to fight... Once Jesus returns, then the war will begin, and end in a moment as the forces gathered against HIM in the plain of Meggido will meet its doom as the beast, and false prophet will be cast into the lake of fire... (See Revelation chapter 19)...

    Until then those who are a part of the Spiritual body of Messiah must continue to preach the gospel of repentance, and the imminent establishment of HIS kingdom... Render unto Caesar what is Caesar's, with the understanding that as long as man's laws do not break the commandments of God, we maintain them... For God is our strength ultimately, and one of our responsibilities is to continue to live in accordance to God's will while in this current evil age... God considers those who have HIS SPIRIT as the salt of the earth, and a light to the world despite the spiritual darkness that pervades this world...

    We continue to watch God's prophetic Word to unfold, and remain spiritually sober by remaining spiritually unstained... In other words, striving to stay away from sinful behavior, while allowing for the righteousness of our Father in heaven, through HIS SON, to define who we are... Will we deemed outcasts when this final Satanic kingdom, or 7th head of the beast, (see Revelation chapter 17 verses 9-18) by not adopting this 10 nation kingdom as our own?... Absolutely!... But remember what Christ Jesus told Pilate in the gospel of John chapter 18 verse 36... "My kingdom is not of this world."...

    Those who a part of the Spiritual body of Messiah must understand that our allegiance, and hope is in this Spiritual kingdom that is without end... That has been, and continues to be the test for those who yearn to "overcome the world," while sin reigns supreme within it... For those who do not forsake their heavenly crown while in physical form, these will rule, and reign with Messiah for a thousand years upon HIS return... (see 1 Corinthians chapter 15, 1 Thessalonians chapter 4, Revelation chapter 20 verses 1-6 just to name a few scriptures)...

    Physical Israel will be brought back to the land promised to the descendants of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob AFTER Christ Jesus returns with HIS saints... NOT before!... What we have going on in Israel right now is a falsehood where many believers, and those of Jewish descent are being used to foster this masquerade... Remember that scripture points out that the man of sin will declare himself to be GOD in the temple of God before Jesus Christ return's... (see 2 Thessalonians chapter 2)...

    Also remember that until this spiritual evil is purged from our world, Jerusalem is considered as Sodom, and Egypt in Revelation chapter 11 verse 8... This will not be changed by physical man in any way, shape or form... ONLY the return of Jesus Christ, after the fulfillment of God's prophetic WORD, will be able to rid the world of these spiritual entities that are using mankind for their destructive purposes...

    THIS IS THE PATIENCE OF THE SAINTS.... Whether we die in the flesh, or are alive at our Messiah's return, allowing HIS SPIRIT to be our guide, and fortress is imperative in order to finish the race that our fellow brethren that died in HIM have already done... Beginning of course with the ONE who is the first born of many brethren, and died for sins that HE never committed... Yet lives as our INTERCESSOR at the right hand of our FATHER as our WONDERFUL COUNSELOR, AND CHIEF SHEPHERD... There is no principality that will stand in our way of finishing this physical existence in accordance to God's will, unless of course the decisions we make allow for it... (Romans 8:39)...

    So what is transpiring in Iraq is only another piece of the puzzle as God allows it to be put in place... The message is clear within scripture, and for those who are faithful to Christ Jesus, we realize our strength, and good courage has everything to do with our MAKER, and SAVIOR....

    Stay Spiritually sound in Jesus Christ as our SPIRITUAL TEACHER leads us to greener pastures so as to grow in the grace, and the knowledge that defines who HE is in every way...

    God bless, and peace be with you all...

    PS... Tomorrow, 9/11/2015, will mark the 14th year since the twin towers were taken down in New York... There was both physical, and even more importantly, spiritual reasons for this occurrence... I would like to remind you what Christine Lagarde declared in speech to the National Press Corp. on January 15, 2014... As she focused upon numerology during the first portion of her address, the IMF head also said the 14 is 7 two times... Is there a connection to this, and tomorrow as we see the news unfold?... Time will tell, and in accordance to our Creator's ultimate will, and what HE will allow for...

    Re: From One Form of Physical Enslavement to Another...

    Hello Folks...

    What our Father in heaven wants us to understand as HIS children is that we should not concern ourselves so much of the flesh to the point of desperation... When one is desperate, this is when Satan succeeds in utilizing the flesh as a means of "supposedly" resolving, or lessening the impact of a trial in the flesh.. This is why it is so important that we not allow ourselves to become fearful, or anxious so as to react outside of how our Father in heaven would desire us to...

    The scripture's are replete with examples of what transpires when mankind is found in a seemingly futile situation, and stopping at nothing, even if it is sinful, to resolve the situation... When God is working with us, HE does allow for us to endure trials in order to show us where we are at as it concerns our faith in HIM... Our Creator does not want us to fail, but if we do, learning from these types of situations, and growing from them is so important...

    The situation is Iraq is a perfect example of this... What is going to transpire is beyond the control of us as human beings in the overall scheme of things... What God has, and will not allow to occur within this Middle Eastern country will fall in line with HIS prophetic plan... Whether the former PM Maliki is found guilty of crimes, or not, his role in all of this has been allowed by God for a reason... Whether it has been orchestrated, or not, this man could have been dealt with years ago... God knew Maliki's heart, yet he has been allowed to go on being an obstructionist to the process we all hope to come to fruition..

    Joseph Stalin, Adolph Hitler, among many others throughout history, could have been dealt with before their reign of terror was conceived... So we cannot help but ask why would God allow for such things to transpire... Our Creator knows, and sees far more than we ever will... WE must trust that our SAVIOR is without question the PERFECT JUDGE... Even if tragedy befalls this nation, (which it will in HIS OWN TIMING), trusting in the fact that our Father is indeed allowing for what is to be that which is necessary to bring forth the solution that has plagued mankind all along...

    We as human beings have been our own worst enemy... Being lead by the Spirit of God helps us understand from HIS vantage point that these tragedies are a result of sin... And no matter what occurs in the flesh, in the overall scheme of things, we know has been allowed by God because of our spiritual failings... We can be forgiven through Jesus Christ of course, but cannot force our neighbor, leaders ect. to repent as well... We can only pray they will, and of course that God will open their hearts, and minds to the situation...

    But will they see, and is, and has God been trying to spiritually save everyone since our beginnings in the Garden of Eden?... If HE has, our Father in heaven has failed miserably... But the fact of the matter is that HE has not... During these ages that have past, God has understood what needs to be done, and what has to be allowed to occur in order that the outcome of all things will most benefit the spiritual lives of HIS creation...

    There have been many that have been called in centuries past in our present time frame... But not everyone has relied on the Spirit of God to be able to endure, and see the bigger picture in all of this... God wants all to be saved in the overall scheme of things... Remember that HE also intends to allow for those created in HIS image to be granted a fair, and just opportunity to know HIM... Even if that has not occurred during their initial life while in the flesh... The bible is clear that all will live again... Whether in an eternal body which is given to those who have been faithful to God up until Jesus Christ's return as King of kings, and Lord of lords... Or will be given a new physical body, not eternal, in order to live in a world that will be filled with the knowledge of the ONE who gave us life... (See Revelation chapter 20, and Ezekiel chapter 37 which gives one a glimpse into this plan of salvation God intended even before the foundations of this world were laid)...

    Remember the spirit in all of mankind can only be destroyed by God... The flesh is subject to perishing, yet God can make it possible that it can endure longer as HE did before, and a little after the flood during the days of Noah... What happened to Adam, and Eve, and all of mankind, (save ONE of course Jesus Christ) who were born in the flesh, is that our spiritual lives became, or we were born in a state of being spiritually dead... The saving grace of Christ Jesus, which was given to some who God called according to HIS purposes, was granted to those even before the appointed time of our Savior's time in the flesh on the earth...

    So while most have been struggling, and focusing upon striving to save the flesh, if our focus was on the Life Giving Spirit of God, and our need to adhere to HIM in our lives, well, the flesh would not have struggled to survive, and been made subject to Satan's devices... Most lives have been spent learning a lesson of futility... Yet, there have been those who have come to understand the plan of God the Father, and realized that our struggle in the flesh only grows worse when physical solutions are sought... Or even worse, when one seeks spiritual entities that come as "angels of light" yet are the enemies of the ONE TRUE GOD who have us life... All struggles in the flesh have begun due to spiritual reasons...

    I was reading a portion of the book of ACTS last night, and in chapter 26 the apostle Paul gives us a perfect example of what transpires when we are being lead by the flesh, and the carnal state of mind we have apart from God... Even if we think we are doing our Creator a service, when not being lead by the Spirit of God, we probably are not... On the road to Damascus this was revealed to this disciple of God, as Paul vehemently sought the destruction of those who he considered enemies of God...

    Paul was on trial, and was addressing King Agrippa as it concerned the circumstances to his Spiritual awakening by the Lord Jesus Christ... If you have time, read the whole chapter of 26, but I would like to focus upon what Jesus told Paul, who was once Saul, while he was on the warpath against those who truly represented our Savior... Below are verses 14-18 it reads:

    "And when we all had fallen to the ground, I heard a voice speaking to me, and saying in the Hebrew language, 'Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting ME?.. It is hard for you to kick against the gouds.'.... So I said, 'Who are You Lord?' And HE said, 'I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting.'
    But rise, and stand on your feet, for I have appeared to you for this purpose, to make you a minister, and a witness both of the things which you have seen, and of the things which I will yet reveal to you.
    "I will deliver you from the Jewish people, as well as from the Gentiles, to whom I now send you, to open their eyes, in order to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and an inheritance among those who are sanctified by faith in Me."

    For Saul thought he was serving God, yet Paul came to the realization, because of the revelation of Christ Jesus, that he was against his Creator, and actually serving Satan... One can be fooled in a world heavily influenced by the god of this world Satan, and his Babylonian system that rules the nations... Religion of man, apart from God, and influenced by the devil, can have an appearance of being right... Good, and evil can seem good... Especially if the good appeals to the one's having to make a choice... The bad is quite often overlooked, yet the results of accepting compromise always makes matters worse in the long run.... Compromise often lead to more compromise... Eventually you have a situation where evil supersedes good, and a new world order is formed... Sound familiar?... It should!... Because it has been happening at an extremely rapid pace in the Western world for the last 50 plus years...

    Excepting the lessor or two evil never is the answer... But this is what mankind has done as Satan, because of the escalated practice of lawlessness, has been able to seduce mankind into this way of thinking... So now as Christ Jesus said it would, the spirit in man has adopted evil as good in many ways... And it has translated within our physical world as acceptable behavior, or tolerated... This is the seduction of Mystery Babylon, as Satan has once again used the mystery of lawlessness to manipulate humanity into being enslaved to him... Sin has, and always will have consequences...

    Enduring to the end as the fulfillment of Gods Word will take a strength outside of ourselves alone... We have to remember that God's Word is being fulfilled, and that these spiritual problems that beset mankind will not be remedied by physical means... It truly is a spiritual war that we face, and this battle will only be won by those who have the Spirit of God... While we can, and should encourage one another in the love of Christ Jesus, we must, as our Savior did, ultimately finish the race alone in a sense... With the help, and guidance of our Beloved God, and Savior in us as our shield in fight...

    Realizing that God is our Fortress, and will be our "place of safety" even if the flesh does suffer, or perish... For to suffer in the flesh for the purpose of the gospel is truly being a living sacrifice for the right reasons in the eyes of God... Remembering that while our Father in heaven is the ultimate judge... HE will allow for, and react accordingly to circumstances that occur on HIS earth by HIS creation... HIS WORD WILL BE FULFILLED, AND IS CONTAINED WITHIN THE BIBLE...

    If we as believers trust in HIM, we will allow for that which occurs in the flesh to transpire without losing faith in HIM despite how our lives may be affected... Preparation for the increase of persecution on those whose trust is in the Son of God Jesus Christ is essential while there is time...

    For not doing so will leave those who have an understanding of God poor, blind, wretched, and naked from a spiritual standpoint... Foolish virgins without the Spirit of God in them to guide them as their light in a spiritually dark world... To be lead by the Spirit of God means one views this world in a fashion that goes beyond the flesh... With the understanding that our God is in control "COME WHAT MAY."... May we be wise virgins of Messiah...

    For the times, no matter how much our physical needs are met, are evil... We must not confuse what transpires in the flesh to what the reality is in the spiritual world... Remembering that Satan, or Lucifer is the "god of this world" as the practice, and love of sin brought about this circumstance... While our Creator has allowed for it, HE is the only ONE that can destroy it... Upon HIS return, this world will be purged of the evil that has perpetrated this fallen state, and there will be no politicking, nor compromise... For HIS will shall be done within HIS kingdom that will come...

    Have a great weekend, and go RV..

    Peace Be Within All Who Put Their Trust in the Great God Almighty...
