Brian Kemp visits Ellijay Tea Party

Election, Politics

ELLIJAY, Ga. – Georgia Secretary of State, and now candidate for governor, Brian Kemp visited Gilmer County today, Feb. 20, to speak with the Ellijay Tea Party about his campaign.

Coming from Athens-Clarke County, Kemp says he got frustrated with the local government’s regulations and taxes. He went on to say, “I wanted to make government smaller. I wanted to make it more efficient. I wanted to streamline it. I was tired of liberal, big Democratic policies going on in state government.”

Moving ahead to his current campaign, Kemp told those present to look at the candidates and ask, “Who do you actually trust to do what they say?”

Kemp noted his use of technology to advance Georgia saying, “I do have that record of using technology to change our corporate filing system where now, the last two years in a row, we have literally set records for the number of annual registrations we’re doing in the first quarter … We also implemented a state-wide voter registration system, a new system because our old one was failing and it was on the state’s old mainframe computer. This is literally a state-wide IT project where we had to go through year-long procurement and then implement this new system in all 159 counties, retraining all the county registrars and election workers on how to use it. But we did that because we now have a better system that does more for the local election folks.”

Elections became a closer focus in Kemp’s meeting as he spoke about supporting the photo ID law for securing elections. Kemp stated he has been attacked by several politicians calling him a voter suppressor. Adamantly denying the claim, he noted 800,000 more people on voter rolls now than when he took office. Though accused of suppressing voting, Kemp noted record turnouts for voting in Georgia for the last elections we have had including the 2016 Presidential Election, the SEC Regional Primary, and even the Karen Handel versus Jon Ossoff special election.

Focusing on his four-point-plan, Kemp took his time to explain his ideas for the governor’s office and his next steps if he gets elected. Noting his first point of making Georgia the number one state in the country for small business, Kemp said that he is a small business guy who spent and still spends time with his construction company. Saying 95 percent of corporations in Georgia’s 700,000 companies employ less than 50 people, he added that Ellijay itself is built on the backs of small businesses.

As his second point, Kemp claimed he wants to fundamentally reform state government through its budget, operations, and taxes. This brought up points of the spending cap and tax reform. Kemp said the only tax breaks he has seen is for those who have lobbyists before adding, “I’m wanting to be your lobbyist as governor, your lobbyist to give you tax breaks.”

Accomplishing this, according to Kemp, would require implementing the spending cap and budgeting conservatively in order to have money left over at the end of the year. Having money left over would lead to the real tax reform. Kemp added he did not care who it was, he would work with anyone on tax reform as long as it is broad based.

“The third point is making sure all of Georgia has the same opportunity; we’re moving all of Georgia forward. It’s not healthy for our state when we only have certain communities that are growing and thriving,” said Kemp, who added that he was the first candidate to make a plan to strengthen rural Georgia including protecting our military bases, taking the Georgia Grown program internationally, and creating economic strike teams to focus investments and job opportunities for projects of real regional significance.

Resting on his fourth point, Kemp said it was something that is easy to say, but not for politicians to follow through on. “Putting Georgians First” has become a campaign slogan for Kemp in addition to a trending hashtag #gafirst. Kemp delved deeper into the topic saying he wanted citizens ahead of special interest groups. He also wants to enforce the ban on sanctuary cities saying, “It’s ridiculous that we have states like California that are now wanting to become sanctuary states when we’re not even taking care of our people and our own veterans. Illegals can go into hospital rooms and get free healthcare and our own people are getting priced out of the market.”

Closing his speech, Kemp told those present that he could not do it alone saying, “I cannot win this race without your help.” Stating he was not a special interest candidate, Kemp claimed he has the resources to win and the “best ground game in the state” with locals and citizens who endorse his message and his campaign. He called it a grassroots army that he was raising through people who would support him.

After delivering his message, Kemp took a few moments to answer questions. Generally focusing on elections, voter IDs, and ballots, Kemp noted there is not a verifiable paper audit trail in current systems. With an aging system that has been near collapse, Kemp says they have been looking at options for the next system to use. Considering electronic systems versus paper ballots, the discussion of what system should be used has caused debate.

Kemp spoke about a test last November in Conyers as a pilot: “You vote on a marking device like we have now. Then, once you hit submit, it prints the ballot out. You can hold it in your hand. You can look at your selections … Let’s say it’s not like you want it, you take it to a poll worker, they spoil the ballot, and you go back. If it is like you want to vote, you go to a scanner. It scans that ballot, counts it electronically, so you have the electronic count. Then it drops it into a locked ballot box, so you have the paper receipt. So, you actually have two ways to audit after the election.”

FetchYourNews also got a chance to ask Kemp about his opinions on Senate Bill 375, “Keep Faith in Adoption and Foster Care Act.” Though Kemp said he had not fully read 375, he said he signed the pledge to support religious liberty legislation that was vetoed in recent years. A topic that has divided lawmakers and legislators, the religious liberty pledge could set the future of reviving that legislation. While supporters point to the protection legislation like 375 could afford businesses and departments, opponents fire back with allegations of “legalized discrimination.”

Kemp said in today’s Tea Party meeting, “The sky is not falling if we protect religious freedom and religious liberty by signing a bill in Georgia that references what is in federal law.” Calling it a common sense thing, he says he is supportive of the issue. However, signing the religious freedom bill may make Bill 375 a “non-issue.”

The Jimmy Story

The Jimmy Story

 Are you hurting, or concerned over a loved one?  Are you willing to love the Lord and trust Him with all your heart?  If you Love the Lord, and trust enough to turn that loved one or any issue in your life over to Him;  He will go to work for you. If it is a loved one, He will give them every opportunity to get right with Him. If you care, God cares. First of all, He cares about you and what you are going through. He is not willing that anyone should ever perish, but that they should be loved and free from sin and prosper in all their ways. The Lord gave me an understanding of this through a young man I met, named Jimmy; He worked for a man in Stuart, Fl. Jeff bought and sold cars. He would buy at the auction in Ft. Lauderdale and sale up and down the coast to dealers. I ask him if he would buy a specific car for me, for a  fee, and he said he would. He called me and said he had purchased my car, but I would need to go with him the next day to the auction to pick it up. When he picked me up, he had Jimmy with him and he was going along to pick up another car. It turned out to be a long day. He made several stops doing business deals. Jimmy and I would stay outside, and I would talk to him about the Lord Jesus. Jimmy was polite and quiet, but he would never answer me. He had a Nazis swastika tattooed on his neck which did not seem to fit his “nice guy “image.  I knew by his boss’s name that he was working for a Jew. This seemed strange to me.I seemed to be obsessed with getting Jimmy saved. I was on him all day. Late in the afternoon, I thought I was running out of time, and I said, “Jimmy, before you die, make sure you cry out, Jesus save me.” Then I said,” do you hear me, Jimmy? Remember Jimmy as you are dying, cry out, “Jesus save me.” I said it several times. He looked at me, and I am sure he thought, this old man is crazy. And I remember saying to myself, Bob, what is wrong with you? This young man is only 21 years old you have got to lighten up. This guy thinks you are a nut, and I was ready to agree with him

Someone else purchased the car that was for me, so I rode back with Jeff.  Jimmy drove another vehicle back. I talked to Jeff about Jesus.  He said his dad was a Jew, but his mother was a Catholic, and he knew about Jesus, and he was going to do better.  When we got to Jeff’s place, he had one car there with 10,000 miles on it. The car was 3 or 4 years old, but looked like new.  I made the deal. He said he would have Jimmy detail it, and I could pick it up tomorrow. The next afternoon, he had not called, so I called him . He said, “Jimmy died.” I said, what do you mean Jimmy died! The boy was only 21, and in perfect health. He said Jimmy’s mother had called and told him that he came in around eleven last night and talked a while then went to bed. The next morning she went in to wake him, and he was dead.  I told Jeff that I spoke to him about the Lord, and he said, he told me you did after you left. This is a mystery. I have no clue why Jimmy had to die, but this I know, Jimmy could not have died without me, or someone like me, that would tell him about Jesus. The Lord ordered that whole day on behalf of Jimmy. Some little Mother, Dad, or Granny had lit the fire of God over Jimmy’s life. I gave him the plan of salvation every way I knew how , and he never responded to me, but God purged Jimmy in his dying breath. What a Wonderful, Magnificent, Awesome, Loving Father and God we have. If you have a loved one out there and you have done all you know to do , just remember Father God is a family man. He doesn’t want you in heaven and your family member in hell, or suffering. Keep crying out, keep praying, start speaking with the authority that God has given you. God will consume their problem and cleanse them just for you, My friend. The word in your mouth can be someone else’s eternity. Pray, speak. Don’t forget Num23:19 “God is not a man, that he should lie,” you can, above all, trust what he has said.

Understanding the Fire Power of God 

Religion

Understanding the Fire Power of God

 The scripture says in Heb.12:29 that our God is a consuming fire. Over the years I have found it very difficult to understand the firepower of God.  How do we get the fire and how do we use it in our lives and ministry? Jesus is the Baptizer of the Holy Spirit and fire. I see many flowing in the Holy Spirit, but I  find it hard to see the fire. John the Baptist said Jesus would baptize us with fire as well as the Spirit. That’s two things. It should be a big deal. Just how do we use this fire of God that we are baptized with? I am not sure we know how this fire baptism works.

 Luke 3:16, John answered, saying unto them all,” I indeed baptize you with water; but one mightier than I cometh, the latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy to unloose. He shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost and with fire.” I say, if we do not see the fire, we probably don’t know how to use it. I’m not sure that I understand the full meaning of the fire baptism by the Lord Jesus, but I will try to share what the Lord has shown me.

Several years ago as I lay down on my bed, I had a dream or a prophetic visitation. I was taken to this large field.It was longer than a football field but resembled a farm. I was leading a riding horse that was saddled up.  I was carrying a bouquet of flowers in my right hand and leading the horse with my left. I came up to this village, and I saw several white frame houses in a semi-circle or half circle. Every home I saw was precisely alike: white and very clean and orderly. The yards were spotless. To the left and at the rear of each house was a pile of debris about two feet high. It looked like trimmings from a small orchard. In front of each pile stood a man with a torch in his hand with no fire. Every man was blocked. They had gone as far as possible in their own power. The pile of debris represented the problems in their life that would not go away, and yet they had pushed as hard as they could. They could not move the debris or get rid of it. The debris represents problems like lust, pornography, alcohol, drugs, procrastination, sickness and above all out of control children. Anything that was eating away at them. I came to this angel on my right hand who looked like a man, and I asked him,“What are all these men doing just standing here with these torches in their hands?”The angel said, “The Holy Ghost said when you light the fire, the rats and things will come running out, and he can destroy them.” Rats and thing are demons and strongholds that stand in your way- Anything that nibbles away at your life and hinders you or robs you of joy, peace, rest, prosperity, or the quality of life that you should be living as a child of God. [Notice, you have to light the fire before the Holy Ghost moves against the enemy.]  I turned and said, “Light them!”  When I spoke, each man lit his brush pile, and the fire fell from heaven and licked up all the debris. It did not leave so much as a matchstick! Then every man was free to move forward.The flames rose up and blanketed the whole sky before me.  The flames formed into a ball of fire as large as a truck. The wind shifted, and the Spirit of God moved. The ball of fire came to me and consumed the flowers I was carrying and then consumed me. I was absorbed into the ball of fire and was baptized in it.  I have struggled with the Lord for years for a proper understanding of all of this. I now know it was to be understood little by little as I ministered and matured along the way.The men with the torches, but no fire, represented the children of the kingdom who were truly living for Christ Jesus. The clean yard and spotless white houses described the condition of the believer’s life. They had tried their very best to live for the Lord and to help those they loved. The horse represented my ministry which was to come. I was not in the saddle because I was not quite ready My flowers which were consumed, were issues in my life: my brush pile which the Lord had to take away. God is a consuming fire. He purges away what we cannot get rid of ourselves.  We need a better understanding of how to use the firepower of God. I think it is like everything else, the Word makes it work, or it doesn’t work. My words were made real when I used them, and so will yours be when you speak. I would think they could have lit the fire with better understanding.

 Jer. 23:29 “Is not my word like as a fire? Saith the Lord; and like a hammer that breaketh the rock in pieces?” Evidently, the fire is released through the spoken word of God. I did what the angel told the Holy Ghost I was to do; I said light them. I believe the people, who are baptized with fire, are the ones with the authority of God’s word in their mouth. His Word is like a fire when spoken with power and like a hammer that breaks down anything in the way. I kept thinking this Word was for me, but how many people could I help?  This Word to light the fire of God is for all that will speak the Word with faith, boldness, and authority. The fire comes when one gets hold of God and refuses to let go. Get to know and to understand the baptism of fire when the fire was lit every man walked free from every hindrance.–

Fatherhood

Religion

   “Fatherhood”

 One day while just talking to the Lord about the issues of life, I realized that I am an old man, and yet I am being fathered. We have a heavenly Father.   I have someone who will hear all of my troubles, and understand all of my fears; someone who knows and cares about me and is willing to help me. What comfort! What a blessing! What a wonderful, awesome Father is our God!  Father God has a kingdom. The Bible calls it the Kingdom of God. if you are in It, He will be a real Father to you.

  If you believe in His precious son, the Lord Jesus, then you can walk right into the Father’s heart, and right into the Father’s kingdom where He can take care of you. Father God loves you. Ask, in the name of the Lord Jesus, and He will open the door of His heart for you.

1John 5:19 KJV “ And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lies in wickedness.” (Amplified Bible “

we know [positively] that we are of God, and the whole world [around us] is under the power of the evil one.” )

So the Devil has a kingdom also. Listen up now, if you are in his kingdom you are also being fathered by the devil and are being slowly lured into a deep, dark, burning hell. If you don’t know the Lord Jesus, you better start sleeping with one eye open.

Some years ago, after I was saved, I sought the Lord day and night without ceasing; for ten years. One day I got into my prayer closet and spent the day just crying out to God. That night when I put one foot in the shower, the Lord spoke to me in a very clear, loud, audible voice. He said to me, “THIS IS THE WILL OF GOD.”  I don’t want you to hear what the Lord said to me because it will mean little or nothing to you, but I want you to hear what He is saying to you. I am speaking His words to you on His behalf. He told me His will. I have the word of God for you. This is a quote from the Spirit of God- “This is the will of God.” Then He just let me stand there, for what seemed like forever, with hot water splashing on my leg. I stood at attention. I was afraid to move even to adjust the water. Then He spoke these words to me, “Believe on Him whom he has sent.” I was a little taken back. I thought, I already believe. I wanted to hear Bob you’re doing good, or you’re my man or something. But over the years, I have learned that the kingdom of God is built on the words, the Body, and the precious blood of his Son, Christ Jesus. The Kingdom of God flows and operates through Him. Jesus was sent to bring us back to the Father and to set us apart by transforming and translating us into the Father’s Kingdom where he can provide and take care of us. Here is my confirmation.

John 6:38-39 Jesus said, “ For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me.”

“And this is the Father’s will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing but should raise it up again at the last day.” I am not talking here whether you can or cannot lose salvation, but about a wonderful heavenly Father who wants you, and who has given a charge to his wonderful Son, Christ Jesus to secure you and keep you until the day, He raises you up.

Matt.17:5  “This is my beloved Son in whom I a well pleased; hear ye Him.” If you listen to all the words of Jesus, He will be a security blanket unto you.  He is the perfect will of the father for you. Jesus knowing he would be leaving the earth has sought the Father for our direction, comfort, and security forever.

John 14:16-17, Jesus said, ” I will pray the [Father], and He shall give you another Comforter that He may abide with you forever.”  “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.”  While you are waiting for the return of Jesus for you, the Holy Spirit has you covered.

John14:26-27 ”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.” “ Peace I leave with you ,My peace I give unto you, not as the [world] gives, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” The Holy Spirit will remind you of the things Jesus has said and wants you to stand on to help carry you through.

John16:13 “Howbeit when He, the spirit of truth, comes He will guide you into all truth: for He shall not speak of Himself; but whatsoever He shall hear, that shall He speak: and He will show you things to come.” He will speak and will be the voice of Jesus to you. “Listen”

Our wonderful Father has our future mapped out forever. John14:1-3, this next event is only for kingdom people like you.

Jesus said” Let not your heart be troubled neither let it be afraid, you believe in God believe also in Me. In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.” You can’t even die!

John 11:26 Jesus said, “And whosoever liveth and believeth in Me shall never die. Believest thou this?” You, my friend, are of the God kind. You are sealed. You are zip locked in. When your body stops, you just step right out into the presence of the angels of the Lord, you never skip a beat. Spirit can’t die. I have been in the presence of one who passed over, and I heard them say, “they are here.” The angels carry you right into glory. Just remember, to believe on Him whom He has sent.”

Ezek 18:4” The soul that sins it shall die” The unrepentant sinner, without the Spirit of God, does not have this hope.

2Cor5:21, Paul said,” For he hath made him to be sin for us who knew no sin, that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.”  Your father loves you, and you are made right, put right and kept right. You’re everything He ever wanted. Think about this; the thing purchased always has more value than the price paid in the eyes of the purchaser.

Rev 4:11{ KJV} “Thou art worthy, O Lord to receive glory and honor and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure, they are and were created.”

You are the best that Father God could do. He created you for himself, for His pleasure, just like He wanted you! [so don,t mess it up] If He could have done better, He would have. Remember, you are of the God kind, you are like your Father.

THE POWER OF THE WORD

Religion

  The power of God’s word

I want to give you a word of encouragement today. Perhaps some of you are going through fiery trials even now.  Stand firm, keep trusting the Lord.

I have noticed most people I know who truly live the Christian life, and not just go to church, but have the word of God working in their lives, seem to have a noticeable peace and rest about them. I believe, and I share this from experience, that rest may well be the highest order of the blessings of God. The blessed people seem always to know in depth the word of God.  I concluded that the word of God must have strength, power, and wisdom in it.  If it were not of great value, we would not pursue it.

Exodus 33:13-14  Moses said to God, “ Now, therefore, I pray thee, if I have found grace in thy sight, show me now thy way, that I may know you, that I may find grace in thy sight, and consider that this nation is your people.” I am thinking here, did anyone ever know God like you did Moses? The guy is standing in miracles up to his knees. He had just led millions of people out of Egypt after practically destroying the country by the hand of God. Now he is saying, “I don’t really know you.”

Moses was God’s man of the month. God’s man of the hour, but he did not feel like he truly knew God.

 And God said, “My presence shall go with thee, and I will give you rest.”What a promise Father God made to Moses: I will be present with you, and you will have rest. My friend rest comes from believing the promises of God. The greatest promise God could make to Moses was to give him rest.

Listen to this wonderful promise from the Lord Jesus to us.

John14:16-18 “ And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you forever. Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive because it sees him not, neither knows him: but ye know him; for He dwells with you, and shall be in you.

 I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.” His spirit will always go with you, and He, The Holy Spirit, will give rest to you.

Ps119:105  The Psalmist  said, “ The word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path.” God’s word takes the load off and shows you the next step I will take that every time.

The word of God is Spirit, and it is life. I will take that kind of life. Come and let it light up your life.

John10:27,” My sheep hear My voice.” His word, as well as his Spirit, is His voice.

The Word will protect you. It will be your rear guard.

The Psalmist said, “Thy word have I hid in my heart that I might not sin against you.”  The word will keep you clean, and pure.

The word is what Father God desires to say to all mankind.  He knows everything and owns everything. It is His world. He inspired all the words of the Bible. It is His story.

 Jer.15:16 ( Don’t forget what Jeremiah said)”Thy words were found, and I did eat them, and the word was unto me the joy and rejoicing of my heart.” Father God responds and gives rest to His children who know his word and is secure in Him.

2: Peter1:3 the word says he has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness; through the knowledge of Him, that has called us to glory and virtue.  We get His knowledge by hearing what He has to say. It is a great thing to be able to apply His knowledge to your situation. I am trying to tell you God wants to talk to you through His word today.

The entrance of the Word brings light. Has it entered you, my friend? Is your path lit up? It should be.

How are things, how is your life? Listen as I tell you about God’s plan and see if it is working well for you. And if not, you are probably missing out on what He is saying.

If the Word has priority in your life, it will shine a light on your path. Your thinking will change for the better, and you will make better decisions and better choices in life. That will help you to prosper in every area of your life.

The Word will show your feet where to step, and it will keep you on the right path. Even a flashlight can be king in a dark room.

Have you thought of the Word as power for life? It can be. It powers my life. The Lord quickened the Word to me years ago, and I have ordered my life by it. God’s Word is the greatest treasure and the greatest value of my life. It has delivered everything that it’s promised.

Psalms12:6,” the words of the Lord are pure words as silver tried in a furnace of earth purified seven times.” That’s big.

Think about the power of the Word. When your heart is full of the Words of God, it will overcome your old sorry, sinful life.

If you have a sin problem, the infilling of the Word in your heart will push it away. It leaves very little room for sin.

Ps119:89, “Forever, O Lord thy word is settled in heaven”. Let’s talk about this. It is a rope you can hang on to, an anchor that will secure you and a stabilizer that will keep you in balance.

Isaiah 40:8, “The word of our God shall stand forever.”

Matt 24:35 Jesus said, “Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my word shall never pass away.”Nothing else has this kind of shelf life..

John 14:24 “Jesus said, and the word that you hear is not mine but the Father’s which sent me.” We could say, all of the heavens back His Word.  I heard a statement from a Rabbi that goes something like this, “the words of men that represent God today have overpowered and overshadowed the Word of God.” Men are starving us out. There is a true famine of the true Word of God.

John 4:24 Jesus said, God is a spirit.” Jesus said My Word is a Spirit, and it is Life, so the Life of God flows out of the Word of God to us.  Paul called him The Invisible God in Col 1:15

God is a Spirit, so His Spirit, His Word must touch our spirit and influence our flesh to work.  If you pick up His Words and run with them, you will score every time.

John 17:7Jesus said,” Father I have given them the words that you gave me. I finished the work that you gave me to do”. Think about that. Jesus gave you the Words of Life, for your life.

Vision of the Strait Gate

Religion

Vision- Strait Gate

Recently,
while just getting up from my couch, in the middle of the afternoon, I had
an open vision of the Lord Jesus. I did not see a full face of Him, but I
did see the whole person. I walked up behind him.  He was standing inside
of a fenced yard with his left hand on the gate as if he were pulling it
toward himself. It looked to be about 15- 20% closed. Over his head were
two words written in very large, bold letters” *STRAIT GATE”*Jesus was
looking straight ahead as if with great concern. I believe, by the way he
was looking out that gate, he was looking for the people who are yet to
come into the kingdom. Even though I could not see his face, I sensed his
feelings.* Jesus did not say a word to me, but I believe he was saying,”
Time is winding down Bob, Now is the time to move in the day of my power.
Work while you have the light; while the door is still open and the fields
are white already for harvest.” * I can’t say for sure, the straight gate
is beginning to close, but I can say for sure that day is coming.

Luke 13:24 Jesus said,” Strive to enter in at the strait gate; for many, I
say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able.” I ask you, my
friend, do you still spend time thinking about the straight and narrow way
that leads to the strait gate? Are you striving for it? I hope you are
showing your family and friends how to get on the path that leads to the
strait gate. Help them find it! Will you? No matter what we are doing in
the body of Christ, our priority should be telling others about Jesus who
loved us and died for us.

Luke 19:10 Jesus said,” For the Son of man is come to seek and to save
that which was lost.”When the Lord visits us with visions, I assure you it
is for a good reason. Jesus wants to make a statement and I feel like this
is it; He loves all people, but they will never be his unless they come
through that straight gate that leads to him. You only get there by being
born again

John 3:3 Jesus answered and said, unto Nicodemus,” Verily! Verily! I say
unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”
Just as Jesus told Nicodemus you must be born again I ask you, my friend,
will you speak for Jesus, Will you tell others they must be born again? If
nobody speaks, then nobody hears.

2nd Peter3:9,” The Lord is not slack concerning his promise as some men
count slackness but is longsuffering to us-ward not willing that any should
perish, but that all should come to repentance.”Bring everyone who will
listen to you in while the gate is still open. Jesus said,” come unto me
all you that are weary and I will give you rest.”When I saw Jesus he was
wearing a purple robe; I believe he was wearing purple for a reason. He was
treated and tried as a common criminal dressed in purple before he was
crucified. Purple still speaks of his suffering, bleeding, and dying for us
The color purple is mentioned 48 times in the Bible.Some of the things it
stands for are royalty, majesty and high officials (Judge.) It is true that
judgment is coming someday, but for now, his loving hand of grace and mercy
is extended to as many as you will bring to him.

1Peter3:18,” For Christ, also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the
unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but
quickened by the Spirit.”  If Jesus suffered and died to bring you to God,
he also suffered and died for your neighbor.

Jn 10:9 “Jesus said I am the door: by me, if *any man* enters in, he shall
be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.” “I also believe he
would say to some of us, that we have taken our eyes off of the narrow path
that leads to the strait gate and that we are traveling over the by-pass
road because it is the quicker and easier way.  Be careful.The off-ramp
will drop you off in the wrong place. If you see fire and hear weeping and
gnashing of teeth, you will know you took the wrong exit.

Jesus said,” Fear not, little flock it is the Father’s good pleasure to
give you the kingdom.” The Kingdom belongs to you, but you can show the
door to someone else, maybe your own family. You, my friend, are priceless
in the Father’s eyes. He created you and is not about to leave you in a
dark place without giving you and your family a way out, even at the price
of the blood of His Son.

You have heard the old saying, “you are one in a million.” That is not
true. You, my friend, are one in 7 billion; yet our Father knows you well
enough to know every hair on your head.  And if that weren’t good enough;
not one person in the world has your fingerprints. Not one other person has
your DNA. You have a special place in the Lord, and his Kingdom. If my
friend, you are not sure of your place in the Lord, and you want in just
say Dear Lord Jesus, please come into my heart and wash my sins away. I
will pray for you just e-mail me with; I did it,  I want in,  I prayed, or
yes.

THE LIAR

Religion

THE LIAR: ARE YOU A LIAR/YOU ARE GOING TO HELL
It looks like, for sure, all liars will go to a burning hell!

*The Lie**,* The devil’s foundation is built on it. The devil lied to Eve
in the garden and brought sin into the whole world, upon all mankind.

*Lying spirit*: The devil is a liar and a deceiver. He comes to take away
God’s best for your life and God’s promises to you. He comes only to steal,
kill, and destroy you. The Lord wants you to be free from the attack of
your enemy, the devil.

·        Jesus  died to break Satan’s power, and set man free.

If there is such a thing as the world’s worst sin, it would have to be
lying.The devil’s power base for his sinful, fallen world is built on it.

·        Prov 19:22 “A poor man is better than a liar.”

·        Prov19:5 “A false witness shall not be unpunished, and he that
speak lies *shall not escape*.”   Ops

·        Pro19:9  “He that speak lies *shall perish.” (That’s scary)*

·        Ps101:7 “He that works deceit shall not dwell within my house.

·         He that tells lies shall not tarry in my sight.” O, What hate God
must have for the lie. Watch your tongue.

John 8:44 Jesus said;” Ye are of your father, the devil, and the lusts of
your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning and abode not
in the truth because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he
speaks of his own: *for he *is a liar *and the father of it.”*

If you lie, you are speaking for the devil.  When you lie, Jesus says that
the devil is your father.

Acts 5:3 “But Peter said, Ananias, why hath *Satan filled thine* *heart to
lie* to the Holy Ghost.  Why hast thou conceived this thing in thine heart?
Thou hast not lied unto men, but unto God.”

Jesus has defeated Satan. He spent a lot of time teaching us who, and
what the devil is like.

Jesus has taught us that in his name, and by his power, we too can defeat
him every time. Submit yourself to God resist the devil, and he will flee
from you.

Just how do you think Father God feels when you neglect all of his
promises, and all of his provisions for you, and lie?  The Father must weep
when you reject the shed blood of his own son, who is the truth. If you
leave the truth and accept the devil’s lies, that means, right now you
think the devil can, and will help you and put you over better than God
can.

If you are a liar, it is because you are being influenced by the demon of
insecurity, and inferiority.  You think you cannot be represented on your
own merits, so you borrow the devil’s power, which is always deception. You
depend on the lie, not realizing you are calling on the wrong father, the
Devil to prop you up.

When he speaks a lie, he speaks of his own: for he is a liar *and the
father of it*.  If you use a lie, to manipulate someone to accomplish your
will or purpose, you have just used the doctrine of the devil and showed no
faith in God. That makes the devil your father. If you are the head of your
house, and you are a liar, you will have a cursed house, and it will run
through your family line until you repent.  You have given the devil a seat
at your table.  Who’s *your daddy*?

Let’s look at where the lie will put you in the end.

Rev 21:27”And there shall in no wise enter into heaven anything that
defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, *nor maketh a* *lie.”
Watch what comes out of your mouth.*

Rev 21:8  “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 burns *with *fire* *and brimstone*
.”

Rev22:14” Blessed are they that do his commandments that they may have the
right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.
15 For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers,
and idolaters, and whosoever *loveth and maketh* *a lie.”*

My friend if you are a liar you can’t go anywhere, but to hell. Notice the
word says you are the *same as a murderer.*

Lying is something not to be taken lightly, yet many people are chronic
liars. If you have a family member that is a liar, I think he is in danger
of a burning hell. Go to him help him.
The jailer said to Paul Sir, what must I do to be saved? Paul said, “Believe
on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shall be saved”. Just believe and ask.-

Practical Faith

Religion

Today, I want to talk to you about your faith, but I don’t want to do just another faith teaching that won’t  work for you any better than the last one you heard. I want to help you to power up the faith you have. Faith works by love, so then, love will be your power source to walk by faith. You can measure your faith in the Lord by your love for Him. Faith is reaching out with love, and appropriating what has already been spoken and offered to you.

Rom.12:3, Paul said,” For I say, through the grace given unto me to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, as God hath given to every man the measure of faith.” The Father jump starts all of us in our faith walk. We increase it by learning to listen to His Word, knowing His will, and learning His way.

Gal.3:22 The Apostle Paul said, “The scripture hath concluded all under sin, that the promise by faith [of] Jesus Christ might be given to them that believe.”

Paul also said,” I walk by the faith of Christ Jesus.” Faith is not something you get, but something you have when you receive and believe Christ Jesus.  We must learn to receive and live by His faithfulness.

I want you to take a look at Gal.1:3-4.  Paul said,” Grace be to you and peace from God the Father and our Lord Jesus Christ who gave Himself for our sins that He might deliver us from this present evil world; according to the will of God and our Father.” We must change worlds. You have to walk out of this evil world and put no faith in it at all but keep your heart set on the Faithful One, Christ Jesus, and His Kingdom.

Gal. 2:20, Paul said,” I am crucified with Christ. Nevertheless, I live; yet not I but Christ lives in me and the life that I now live in the flesh I live by the faith [of] the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.” When you believe and trust everything Jesus said and did, and can believe Him for His future promises; you will be full of faith. (although you’re standing in the midst of an evil world)

Rom.10:17, Paul said,” So  then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” You can add to your faith by taking in more of the Word of God. Our big challenge is understanding how faith works and when we allow the Holy Spirit to work in us.

Heb.11:1,” Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” We must work the substance and believe the evidence of something we cannot see. Faith believes what cannot be tasted, touched, seen, heard or smelled.

Faith is a place between A-men, and there it is. I prayed. I believed. I have it. Faith is what you hold on to until the thing you are praying for comes into your hand.

1John5:4, “For whatsoever is born of God overcomes the world, and this is the victory that overcomes the world, even our faith.” Faith is Big, Big, Big.

How do you use faith?  Faith does not come from or operate out of the natural realm.                                                                                                                                                                                                Your spirit touches things of the Spirit. By faith, your spirit touches the supernatural realm. Your soul, which is your mind, will, and emotion touches the sense realm: reason, thought, feelings, and desires.

Your body touches the five senses: touch, smell, hear, feel, and taste.

The natural man says,” if I see, it I will believe it”. The spiritual man says,” If I believe it, I will see it.” Jesus said, My Word is Spirit, and it is Life. Do you have the Life of the Spirit working In you?

Remember Peter. He was taught perfectly by the Master. He knew everything about Jesus, but when his faith was tested, he failed the test. He said, “I don’t know the man.”  After he walked on water with Jesus, and after twice working with Jesus in feeding multitudes with a few fish and bread, the #1 Jesus school graduate had little faith in the man. Christ Jesus.

When Jesus appeared to His disciples in Galilee, after his resurrection, Matt28:17 says the eleven worshiped, but some doubted. That alone shows you that faith doesn’t come easily. Even the men that were with the Master all the time showed little faith. Jesus said, my Word is Spirit, and it is Life. Faith then comes by hearing His Word.  After Peter was filled and baptized with the Holy Spirit, he was able to tell the lame man,” in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth what I have, give I you, rise and walk.”

Rom.1:11, Paul said, “For I long to see you that I may impart unto you some spiritual gifts to the end you may be established.” This is big because spiritual gifts do not operate out of the natural man.They operate by faith out of the spirit. The natural man’s faith is only in what he can see or control. You have to step out of the natural man into the spirit realm and establish yourself in the spirit to move by faith.

When it comes to the things of God, you can‘t have it unless you can get it by faith.  Without faith, it is impossible to please God. I believe this tells us the more faith we have, the more we can please Him. Tell me, is anything greater than pleasing our wonderful Father?

My friend, if you are trying to walk by faith based on what you have learned without first getting the word down deep in your spirit, you will lose every time!  After you are saved and become a child of God, you must learn to live by faith. The Lord seldom, if ever, responds to pain, suffering, or sorrow. God responds to faith.

Prov.20:27, “The spirit of the man is the candle of the Lord.” God sees what is in your spirit, and he measures your faith from there. How do you think you look? What condition is your spirit? Are you praying every day in the spirit? If so, you should have your spirit built up until you can believe His word. True faith moves the Lord’s, heart. Little faith grieves him.

Gal.5:6,” Faith works by love.” God lavished his love upon you when He took you into His family. He washes your hurting, ugly, sinful life away, and promises you a future and a hope, and a love that lasts forever. My friend, this should make your faith rise and work for you.

Luke 22:31, “Simon, Satan has desired to have you that he may, sift you like wheat, but I have prayed for you that your faith fails not.” Prayer is the bridge that faith travels over. It is not unusual to doubt your faith, but those who move the kingdom forward, never doubt The Master. You must have faith in all that He says.

Study and learn God’s word. If the Word is not understood, the enemy gobbles it up. We need faith to trust God in everything we do.  Not just faith in Him, but confident in our position in Him. In other words, we need to be filled with His love and walk in His ways.  We can operate the things of God in our lives by our faith in Him. Again, you will never walk in more faith than you can believe.

You cannot withhold anything from God and still have faith in His promises. You will not speak for Him with authority. You must live a pure life through Him, My friend; we have an anchor and someone to hold on to forever: The Man, Christ Jesus.  

Matt. 9:29 Jesus said, “According to your faith let it be done unto you.“

Eph. 6:16 Paul said,” Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith you shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one.” I assure you the darts will come. So Faith up.

Please remember faith works by love: little love, little faith. We must learn to love in order to walk in great faith that pleases the Lord.

Gal.3:11, “The just shall live by faith.”

Rom.8:1, “There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.” You are made right, put right, justified. That makes You a just person!  Now you can live by faith.  Jesus said,” I am the light of the world.”  Before He left, He said you are the light of the world. Throw your light out there, let it shine. Jesus said,” Let your light so shine before men that they may see your good works and glorify your Father who is in heaven.”. Matthew 5:16r.
