Lazy Christians

Today is my 4th anniversary in WordPress.com as blogger. I wonder what to write since it’s been ages since the last time I write an article, like a good piece. My class schedule have quite few vacancies. I asked God, “What do you want me to do today Lord? Or What do you want me to learn from You? I want to hear Your instruction.” After couples of browsing on the internet I found this video.

…then boom! O-k, so this is the thing You want to remind me today Lord. I knew it. The short film’s entitled “Lazy Christians.” Yes, I am a Christian, and I am sometimes lazy…or to honestly confess, oftentimes these days within this month at work, towards my classes, waking up, or jumping off to bed to sleep late. Usually I am hardworking, but not workaholic. But, these days is so hard for me, it’s hard to pull myself. It’s like I was building others spirit up, but I forgot my own.
As a matter of fact, I arrived late in the office today because I arrived very late to my dental appointment. And you’re right, this was due to my waking habit. The man in the video is an exaggerated version of me. As a defense mechanism, I blamed it on the circumstance the night before, or I keep telling myself, I have worked a lot, did a lot that deserves a break. Many people thought I am righteous, but deep inside I knew I was not good enough. I have weaknesses as much as you do have; I fall short of the glory of God. And with this, I am really humbled.
I finished reading the book of Matthew today, an hour ago. I remembered the parable of the ten virgins. Five wise and five foolish. What made the foolish more foolish is that they are sluggard/ idle/lazy. In the story, the bridegroom left them behind and did not let them in. I don’t want that to happen to me, do you? When I arrived in the dental clinic at 12:00 noon today, I expected to be served right, but I was wrong. They told me, you’re late, we need to have our lunch break. It felt bad since I need to wait for 1 hour and informed our manager that I’ll be late at work. I am not ashamed to admit this. And, I repented. I thought I was doing the right thing, but after I reaped the consequence, I learned my lesson.
At dawn today, I dreamed of me on the crossroads. Of wanting to save time and energy, I ride on the cab which I thought I could do a short-cut, but on my dismay, it was the other way around. Nevertheless, it was a long cut, not a short-cut, at all. The road is longer than the other and I was delayed.

I just realized that dream and the incident that happened to me in the afternoon is a kind of warning and reminder from God, though I didn’t know that dream is intended to be realized today. How many of us are thinking we’re doing wise decisions, but actually were heading to our downfall due to our reckless, selfish, greedy, sluggish and foolish ways?

Proverbs 6:6-11 —The Folly of Indolence

6 Go to the ant, you sluggard!
Consider her ways and be wise,
7 Which, having no captain,
Overseer or ruler,
8 Provides her supplies in the summer,
And gathers her food in the harvest.
9 How long will you slumber, O sluggard?
When will you rise from your sleep?
10 A little sleep, a little slumber,
A little folding of the hands to sleep—
11 So shall your poverty come on you like a prowler,
And your need like an armed man.

To end up, I’m giving back to God all the glory and honor, praises and adoration for allowing me to continue working with Him here in this platform of WordPress.com as His mouthpiece in whatever He intends for the expansion of His kingdom, since my humble beginning here four years ago is so freshly reminisce. Thank you Lord.

To God be the glory!

“Choose the candle in the light of LOVE…”

“Choose the candle in the light of LOVE…
Choose the candle in the light of LOVE…
Choose the candle in the light of LOVE.”

This is the lyrics of the chorus of the new song taught to me by a woman in my dream at dawn today.

The dream started from dawn till morning. The dream went like this…Ladies and some women are tasked to sing a new song, I’m the second performer. The coach said, “Yours has the simplest and shortest lyrics among five of you but yours also have the greatest impact to the world so sing it well.” Then I started singing until I woke up.

Praise God!

As I woke up, I started to pray in the Spirit and automatically I felt the manifested presence of Jesus in my room, then I started weeping and groaning as He led me to pray for the lost souls whose not yet in the sheep pen. As I continually sing in the Spirit, I heard His audible voice weeping for the lost souls. I can’t contain His love as I felt it all over my room, I was overwhelmed by it that made me continually weep and sing songs of worship to Him at the same time.

The Love of Jesus is sweet and marvelous.
His Love is so wonderful.How He loves you and me.
How He loves the lost, the sinner, the sick and the captives…
That’s why He came for the sick and the sinners, not for the healthy nor the righteous.

To God be the glory!

REVEALED TRUTH

Hallelujah! Thank you Lord Jesus for this great testimony of Fatimah. I’m so blessed! I could relate well to her testimony to the times (many times) You had physically healed me of my illnesses (rheumatic heart disease, migraine, vertigo, hepatitis A, anemia, depression, acute gastroenteritis) in the past by your divine and supernatural power.

I repent of my sin when I attempted to commit suicide twice in my teenage life.  I even tested you  many times when I was a child to know if you really exist. But, you are faithful. You showed Yourself to me with LOVE, GRACE and COMPASSION….and supernaturally not just through dreams and visions but through Your words in the Bible by continually revealing yourself day by day.

And, I thank you for working to the lives of all other people who don’t know you yet, and continually revealing Yourself to those who had accepted you so that to them You’ll be fully known.

To God be the glory!

GREAT PEOPLE IN HELL

 

My soul was crying by this testimony on heaven and hell. I heard of lots of versions which in some ways have their similarities, but what caught my attention is the mentioning of a particular church, she said, “Jesus warned leaders of the Assembly of God (church) to repent because they are in the secret cult.” Years ago, I dreamed about this church and God told me to get out from that church though I reluctantly did at first, but now hearing this as a confirmation to the dream God showed me about the church (AG) and the Holy Spirit prompting me to get out from that church which I obeyed years ago, does me no peace but concerned. The fact that there are a lot of dead church now, professing that they are of the Lord, but in fact, of Satan’s. Lord, have mercy on us.

Please do watch this testimony anyway and pray that the Spirit of Wisdom and Understanding shall enveloped you against confusion or unbelief.

We, indeed, could no longer live a double life, that at the same time as on Sundays we go to church but also go to bars/ night clubs nor sing worldly songs, watch soap operas, war movies, cartoons and play violent or all forms of video games and addictions and so on on weekends.

“So, because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth.” – Revelation 3:16

To God be the glory!

Dream today: Heaven and lake of fire

Screen-Shot-2015-03-01-at-3.05.53-PM.png

March 10, 2017 – My dream today from dawn to morning.

A. I was riding a public transit (jeep). When we reached the crossroads, the driver deceitfully U-turned to the wrong way. I contested, but he didn’t seem to hear. He smiled as devil. But, a supernatural power stopped the vehicle so I was able to get away and waited for the right vehicle.

(Wisdom: right vs wrong direction; right vs wrong person or partner/s; the enemy comes only to kill, steal and destroy)

B. I and my mom need to go to the bank. Then heading back from downstairs became hard for me since I had a baby boy and a grocery – (rice) on my arms to carry. Then there’s a spirit filled young lady who helped me. She took the baby from me and put it inside her bag with ease and my mom took the grocery and carried it for me.

That lady carried us to a place we didn’t know. After a long walk, we entered in an old building with pre-school at the ground floor and apartment in the second floor. We need to pass on the stairs which looked fanciful and well fabricated with decorations on the outside; however its foundation is not strong. As we reach the second floor, we‘re able to rest inside her comfortable room.

(Wisdom: Don’t judge by the external factors and the way to righteousness is hard, but once you reach on top, you’ll find rest)

  1. Heaven and lake of fire

Then, while we’re inside that room, I was caught into a place where all I could see is burning liquid fire. Few of us were there: Moses, Aaron, me, Nick Carter and other Backstreet Boys band singer, Britney Spears and a loved-one so dear to me). We’re sitting on a fire-resistant white, soft surface like a mat (I’m not sure what it was like a rubber or a very thick material that couldn’t be burned) suspended above the running lava or lake of fire as if from volcano. I could not see the ending, there’s no wall, like we’re inside a cooking pot. However, we didn’t feel the heat nor the mat got burned.

We’re dressed in white robes or gown. Some of us are radiating or glowing from the light that comes from our body.  This light is a sign, a deposit Holy Spirit inside us so we can’t be harmed, especially Moses and Aaron. Accidentally or some unseen hand pushed Aaron making him dived into the lava or lake of fire underneath us. But, he was not hurt nor burned because of his white gown and the light inside him. He got wet and climbed back as if he just dived from the swimming pool of water.

Suddenly, Jesus appeared from nowhere. He’s walking towards us as if in the bible as he walks on the water towards the boat of Peter and other 12 disciples’.  I was so excited to meet Him, but my heart is a mix of fear, love and excitement. He’s such a huge man, wearing a white robe/ gown like us.

The Holy Spirit spoke to me the reason why we’re there, in that horrifying place.  It was to purify us like gold purified through fire. When Jesus turned towards me, staring at me, He’s smiling and full of love. And, I was like a baby or an infant giggling to Him saying, “Hi Jesus!” But He said nothing. Instead, His aura changed as He turned to the other person sitting next to me (members of Backstreet boys). His face was full of compassion and sadness. We communicate with the language of heaven, not with words but with our minds and hearts, so we understood what He wanted to say.

I understood that singers like them who particularly sing love songs break His heart, because those songs we’re not for Him. Even, Britney Spears who’s also there sitting with us were warned. But Jesus at that moment is so gracious and compassionate. He didn’t want anyone to be thrown into the lake of fire unprotected — those who were not wearing white robe or gown. Because obviously, if they will be submerged into the lake of fire, they’ll got burned. So Jesus gave them the grace; there’s still time to turn back to Him.

The last person I saw Jesus caught attention to was one of my loved-one. She came in as if she’s attending an interview wearing her best suit (blouse and pants) and bringing with her her laptop, Smartphone and pen. I don’t know what happened next.

(Wisdom: Those who love the world or the things of the world are enemies of God.)

Next. My spirit was carried to heaven. Then, I was flying in the sky. I could see very thick clouds and suddenly a particular picture appeared. It reads, “LOVE.” Not only that, it was meant LOVE and felt LOVE. Then I woke up from that dream. As I woke up, I pondered the vision I saw. Then I searched from the Bible scriptures that could support this great revelation, thinking were they biblical or not.

——

And…these Scriptures dawned on me.

 

Sufficient related Bible passages:

  1. 1 John 2:28– (Children of God)

And now, dear children, continue in Him, so that when He appears we may be confident and unashamed before Him at His coming.

  1. 1 John 3: 1-3 (AMP) Children of God Love One Another

“See what an incredible quality of love the Father has shown to us, that we would [be permitted to] be named and called and counted the children of God! And so we are! For this reason the world does not know us, because it did not know Him. Beloved, we are [even here and] now children of God, and it is not yet made clear what we will be [after His coming]. We know that when He comes and is revealed, we will [as His children] be like Him, because we will see Him just as He is [in all His glory]. And everyone who has this hope [confidently placed] in Him purifies himself, just as He is pure (holy, undefiled, guiltless).”

  1. 1 John 4:13-19 (NKJV) The Consummation of Love

“By this we know that we abide in Him, and He in us, because He has given us of His Spirit. And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent the Son as Savior of the world.  Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God.  And we have known and believed the love that God has for us. God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God in him. Love has been perfected among us in this: that we may have boldness in the Day of Judgment; because as He is, so are we in this world. There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love.  We love Him[a] because He first loved us.”

To God be the glory!

 

 

 

Book Review: Renewing, Re-programming the mind

—The mind of a Christian is our greatest battlefield. We fought against temptation, lies, negative thoughts, accusation, evil thoughts, fearful thoughts, depressing thoughts, thoughts of self-pity, confusing thoughts, etc. The author said, “The enemy will try to take our mind, and Satan knows if our mind is knocked out, if our thinking is wrong, the whole person is out.” So, we need a clear, sharp, renewed mind if we are going to walk with the Lord in any degree of clarity and reality. Incompatibility between our spirit and our mind is one of the greatest hindrances to walking with God in the Spirit.

Nothing in a person’s life is closer to the spirit than his mind. The mind is the mechanism for learning matters in the intellectual and materials realms; your spirit is the mechanism for perceiving realities in the spiritual realm. You can’t walk with God in the spirit without your mind playing complementary role. When your mind is free and released, you open a doorway for God’s light to flow to you, hence getting your thought life aligned with God and His word and His purposes and the way He thinks.

Let’s talk about the brain. Again, it was mentioned by the author that your mind is vitally important link in enabling you to hear from God; Satan will attack your mind. This is an area which is used by Satan to get entry into your life. How? Through the eye gate, hearing gate and emotions. Essentially, temptations and thought can’t’ be separated.

Understanding the brain, we knew that it does not originate thought. It cannot think, it’s purely a computer. It can process thoughts—thoughts can be injected, store, played back, and can be put together by our brain because it’s a computer, and can come to conclusions.

However, the brain can’t think of itself, it needs a mind. Just like a computer which needs a mind to use it—the operator.

But the brain can be programmed, with bad and good things, with truth and error. The problem is if we can get wrong programming in there. The scariest thing, who or whatever programs your mind. When programs in your brain are triggered, that program will run, affecting your behavior pattern. That program will run, and that will be your life. The way you think will determine how you walk, what your life is. And Satan will try to program your brain.

How our mind is influenced by outside forces—by our five senses; hearing, touching, smelling, tasting. Also, it is influenced by role models. Celebrities like Lady Gaga whose name means insane is followed by teenagers particularly. So their thinking of that model is then programmed into them—the way they act and dress. The programming comes across—concepts, values and so on.

Another way to influenced …is spirit transmission—by revelation from God and by evil spirits. Our brain is vulnerable to spirit influence—by God or from the kingdom of darkness. It is designed, you see, by God to be operated by spirit, and that makes it vulnerable because there’s more than one spirit, more than the Spirit of the Lord around, all kinds of spirits. These spirits can program your brain; they can inject thoughts, they can put in wrong programming into your brain. So we are made, we can be influenced by the spirit realm and if we accept that influence, over a period of time, you accept it, it will join itself to you. It will become part of you, and it will attach itself.

The brain can be programmed by spirit transmission because your own spirit, evil spirits or God in your spirit can originate thought, revelation which once it becomes illumination; it’s into your brain.

According to the author, “Your brain can be programmed through what we call revelation from God, and by the evil spirits. If you entertain, and not reject, and receive these evil thoughts, they are programmed into your brain.

But sometimes, it just entered into you through passivity. You haven’t rejected it enough to close the door when it comes. That’s why whatsoever things that are of good report, only think of those things. Filter it out, resist and reject them immediately with the help and enabling of the Holy Spirit. There are demons, there are lying evil spirits. The Bible tells us that he from the beginning was the father of all lies. So, he’ll sit there and lie to you, quite often about other people.  And then deluded Christians call that ‘discernment’. They have a thought about someone else, something is wrong—dadadada—and they haven’t filtered it out, and after awhile they think they’re getting discernment. And they are deceived by a deceiving, lying spirit.

God will lower the hedge because He wants you to put on the helmet. So he comes on and drops the hedge and you go, “Why am I thinking like this?” All kinds of terrible thoughts, you know, you see, you’ve got to be bad. You know that something is really wrong with you. God just drops the hedge. He kept the hedge right in, and kept certain things out. Now He says, “Alright, I’m going to let in.” These spirits crowd in, put thoughts into your mind and…now at that point God says, “You’ve got to grow up. You’ve got to control the way you think.”

Phil 4:8 “Whatsoever things are good, pure, lovely, of good report, if there any virtue, think of these things.”

The mind needs to be renewed, re-programmed—one of the greatest hindrances to walking with God in the Spirit is the unrenewed mind, the natural mind with all wrong programming; lies stored in it. When your head is saying one thing and your spirit another, you have confusion. When God is speaking to you and your brain does not agree with what God is saying, that communication from the Lord will be confused at best, totally rejected at worst. God is after compatibility between mind and spirit. Our mind needs to be renewed, re-programmed by God. The problem arises when you come to the realm of faith, your brain objects. The natural mind—your brain—is an enemy of God.

Romans 8:6, “To be carnally (or naturally) minded is death…” “…but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. The carnal mind is enmity against God.

A narrow mind will limit the ability of God to speak to you about great things, large things.

How our mind can be renewed, re-programmed

  1. By revelation from God, the engrafted Word—the more revelation you get, the more your mind is renewed. Once mind begins to be renewed, you will begin to hear more clearly the voice of the Lord.
  2. By the presence of God—Learn to focus on the Lord. When you’re in the presence of God, you’re being changed by the Spirit of God. Your brain is becoming compatible with your mind which is spirit. And when those two merge, you will walk as Jesus walked. You will walk in the Spirit.

Your brain is programmed the way God thinks. There’s no incompatibility. Re-programming— the presence of the Lord, rhema of God, revelation becoming illumination which changes the programming in your mind. So your brain begins to think how God thinks.

  1. By the fire of the Holy Spirit —the power of the Holy Spirit can erase false programming in your brain, and that can happen through the administration of God which we call fire. Fire goes through and it wipes out everything that’s not of God, and only what remains which are of God will get a reward of it.

Finally, take responsibility for your mind. Take it back from the enemy. It’s a fight, he, the devil is going to lie to you all the way, down the way. It’s his favorite way—LYING TO CHRISTIANS either about themselves—he’ll lie to you about yourself and how you feel about yourself—or he’ll lie to you about other Christians. We’ve got a bit work to do, but if you understand how it works, you can approach it with clarity and with faith.

CONSECRATION IS REQUIRED OF YOU HEAD. It means to set aside for God, set it aside to God. Because of consecration of your mind, you are limiting yourself to what you allow input in, input in, what you allow—input, entry. You are limiting yourself. Consecration requires cutting your brain off from certain things and it also requires exposure to the presence of the Lord and His Word.
