a time to reflect

“God is love; I am the God of love, not of hate and destruction. This destruction comes from the very heart of man, a selfish nation that in many respects has forgotten God.

This is not My doing as some would think, it is due to the sins of the heart. The fires that are destroying your country and the things that you hold above Me; your properties, your flora and your fauna are simply a physical manifestation of an inward spiritual burning.  Search your hearts, listen to those whom I have sent to warn you, beware for they are as My prophets, they are not sent as a punishment but out of love, for I would that not one should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

These sins that started in the heart are now manifesting in the physical for the entire world to see; a people who have forgotten God. I love the sinner, I died for the sinner, but I loathe the sin and sin cannot go unrewarded. Yes I have allowed this travesty, but not out of a willing heart, you have brought this fire from hell upon yourselves.

It is a small thing for Me to change the winds or bring the rains you so desperately need, but first Australia put out the fires of sin in your hearts; as Nineveh of old repented and was spared; you too will feel the cool winds and rains of forgiveness. “

great deception

Hebrews 11: 3 says, “Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the Word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.

   

Looking at the world according to faith

“Satan’s goal is to win as many others over to his side as he can. His purpose is to spread his own insanity and delusion to others; to prove that you can live without God, that you can in fact be God.”  

Satan’s great plan to deceive man into believing that the cares or rudiments of this life are paramount to man’s existence has as one of its basic blocks the word impossible. This plan is a carefully laid foundation for his counterfeit kingdom; the plan of his great deception.

Consequently his first attack was a direct attack on the Word of God, Matthew 4: 1-11. According to John chapter 1 verse 1-14 the Bible clearly states that Jesus is THE WORD OF GOD. So Satan is at war with Jesus and by default, anyone who fights on the side of Jesus becomes Satan’s enemy. “My army is built upon My WORD. It is supplied, sustained, and maintained by My Word. Therefore, the defeat of My army can only be brought about by making My WORD of none effect.”

The Word of God NEEDS DISCIPLES; AKA, SOLDIERS; AKA WARRIORS.

  

Satan’s plan is a carefully laid foundation for his counterfeit kingdom; the plan of his great deception.

Therefore to defeat Jesus’ recruitment push, Satan made it his goal to win as many others over to his side as he could. “His purpose was to spread his own insanity and delusion to others; to prove that you could live without God, that you could in fact be God.”

A relentless war against His written WORD was enacted; this warfare is still being waged, not only against the Word Himself, but His written Word, His Living Word (see Heavenly Communications), and against those who carry the Word out into the world in obedience to Mark 16:15. If he can get man to not believe in the Bible then his plan can move along unhindered. If he can cause familiarity of God’s Word to creep into our hearts. Then Bible passages like Hebrews 11: 3 hold very little significance in our understanding.   The word “impossible” became a key word in Satan’s arsenal. “One of the ­basic blocks of his plan lies in this hideous word “impossible. “This is the treacherous creed of the ignorant. “Impossible” is the doctrine of those who look only at the things that are seen, not the things which are unseen. Those who are void of understanding the way Jesus understands fall prey to this ugly monster. The precepts of his plan thrive in the world today. They touch every corner of the world. His philosophy is booming throughout society at large.”

By understanding this principle it becomes apparent why the Word of God has been the target of discrimination from the time it was first set into print. Many soldiers in the army of God have been laid waste or have given up their lives willingly in their attempt to translate, distribute, preach and or print this “heretical tome”. The Word of God is an affront to Satan’s counterfeit kingdom.

Viewing the world according to faith is accomplished only one way. Through reading the Words of faith. Without the “eyes of faith”, the world according to faith will not be possible. The rose colored glasses of faith will put a different hue on the world’s impossible theory. 

One of the mysteries of God’s will and plan is that He has bestowed upon each of us the immortal majesty of personal choice to do either good or evil! This is one thing people don’t seem to understand about God: He likes to give us our choice, even as we do our own children, as long as it is not something bad for us, or bad for others.

01

The choice is yours

Contrary to popular opinion, God does not choose for us!-We have to choose for ourselves. This is why He put us here and what we’re here to learn: how to make the right decisions through our personal contact with Him, our knowledge of His Word and will, and our love for Him and others.

02

discover the truth by choice

Man was put here to make a choice between good and evil, to do right or wrong, to serve God or himself and the Devil. God wants us to discover the benefits of serving Him, and reap the joy, happiness and pleasures of keeping His loving rules for our own good, worshiping and thanking Him for it all in return, as grateful children of our Heavenly Father.

make the bed

Thus we can choose to have faith in Him, trust Him and His Word, and obey it for our own good; or, we can believe the lies of the Devil and rebel against God, disobey Him, refuse to believe His Word, and go our own way. God then frequently lets us suffer the consequences of violating His moral, physical and spiritual laws, rebellion against which, and disobedience to which, bring ill health, misery, pain, suffering, man’s inhumanity to man, cruelty, atrocities, wars, economic ills, unhappiness, mental anguish and even insanity!
