The 18th of February 2017

We adjusted our Prayer Watch time from 12:00nn to 6:00pm to 6:00am to 12:00nn. All for the purpose of a mission: to go to Pampanga and have my Parent-in-Law accept the Lord.

We are just hoping for the best. We do not know how it will be.

So we traveled on the same day to Pampanga. Late afternoon, we arrived. Dinner. After dinner, we’re ready for bed – but we do intend to praise and worship the Lord and pray. My wife invited her parents if they wish to join – at least listen. They did!

By God’s grace, after a few song – I started to pray. God’s wisdom is indeed way too awesome compared to ours. No mind can conceive what He has prepared.

I was lead by the Holy Spirit into prayer – a prayer preaching. Asking the Lord to remind us of all the good things He has done for us. Since, we are singing that He is good, that every good and perfect gift comes from the Father. We just started thanking Him for all the good things He has done for us, and every great gift we received. Even our life! our breath! Then I mentioned about His love for us – in prayer. How He loved us and where is it written in the Bible. How we need a Savior – since we cannot save ourselves and that Jesus is the Savior, the only Name given to whom salvation may be found and that all authority in heaven and in earth was given to Him, that He is the only way to the Father, the truth and the Life. That in His presence, there is freedom – from sickness, from worries, from weakness. That in Him, if we believe, we will have eternal life.

Then, I invited them to accept the Lord. They just obliged. I asked twice if they are willing. They followed the prayer and all glory and honor to God! They received and accepted the Lord!

It was an open heaven!

Right after they received, I prayed for Healing! For Peace, and Joy in their hearts!

I then followed the instructions of the Holy Spirit. I anointed them to receive the following:

  1. Eternal Life
  2. Renewed Strength
  3. Healing

img_20170218_215559

Then, I started talking about how to pray and taught them. We also prayed for the desires of their heart. Among which are as follows:

  • For love to bind the entire family, from their Children down to the Grandchildren
  • For the students in the whole family to finish study and graduate
  • For a prosperous life of their Children down to the grandchildren
  • For their long life

My wife Cora showed them too, what to read in the Psalms. But we trust the Lord for their teachings. I already mentioned to them the Life in Christ teaching. It will happen soon…

img_20170218_215826

God worked and moved mightily! We prayed for this! We do not know exactly how it will happen but it did! The power of an earnest prayer of the righteous! James 5:16

Worth mentioning too, before this day, is the acceptance too of Lola Siony! She’s already 92, and she believed and accepted the Lord – by witnessing a praise and worship done by the CLSF Paco, House of Prayer, in our Friday Night Shabbat!

Daniel 3:25

New Living Translation
“Look!” Nebuchadnezzar shouted. “I see four men, unbound, walking around in the fire unharmed! And the fourth looks like a god!”

New American Standard Bible
He said, “Look! I see four men loosed and walking about in the midst of the fire without harm, and the appearance of the fourth is like a son of the gods!”

God doesn’t need our help. We are the one who is in need. We are the ones who get harmed, attacked, hurt, bound, tied, and thrown. Who can do any of such things to God?

V.20 of the same Chapter of Daniel is as follows:

20Then he ordered some of the strongest men of his army to bind Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego and throw them into the blazing furnace.

Picture this. You are tied. You are carried and thrown down to a blazing furnace – unusually hotter than ever!

What will happen to you now? 

  • broken bones from falling
  • burned hair and skin to the extreme
  • body turned to ashes

BUT, that is not the case with the three (3). They are unharmed! No burns! No nothing! The only thing that’s burned and turned to ashes are the ropes that’s tied to them. Nothing else. Not even their garments or what they are wearing from head to foot was burned. Who can do this kind of saving or rescue to anybody? Who can make the fire not burn anything? Who can make the bones not break from falling? God alone! Our Almighty God and Father!

More than what the Lord can do, you should have asked why the Lord spared the 3. Right?

Daniel 3 New Living Translation

15I will give you one more chance to bow down and worship the statue I have made when you hear the sound of the musical instruments. But if you refuse, you will be thrown immediately into the blazing furnace. And then what god will be able to rescue you from my power?”

16Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego replied, “O Nebuchadnezzar, we do not need to defend ourselves before you.17If we are thrown into the blazing furnace, the God whom we serve is able to save us. He will rescue us from your power, Your Majesty. 18But even if he doesn’t, we want to make it clear to you, Your Majesty, that we will never serve your gods or worship the gold statue you have set up.”

  • They have complete trust in God
  • They refuse to bow down to any idol other than God
  • They made a declaration
  • They are undefiled (Chapter 1)

How awesome is that? That’s more than just bravery or any courage known to men. That’s also more than just loyalty to God!

Daniel 3:28 New Living Translation
Then Nebuchadnezzar said, “Praise to the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego! He sent his angel to rescue his servants who trusted in him. They defied the king’s command and were willing to die rather than serve or worship any god except their own God.

Daniel 3:17 God gave these four young men an unusual aptitude for understanding every aspect of literature and wisdom. And God gave Daniel the special ability to interpret the meanings of visions and dreams.

Trust in God. Trust also in Jesus.

None Like our God

Who can compare to the Lord God Almighty?

there-is-none-like-you

While we are told to be imitators of God, we are still not God. While the Lord Jesus empowered us to do greater things than the likes of what He did, again, we are still not God.

  • God is great!
  • His name is full of power (might).
  • God is Holy!
  • He alone is God.
  • He alone can do what He can.
  • God is awesome!
  • God rescues the helpless
  • God protects the helpless and poor
  • God is love.
  • God is merciful and compassionate.
  • God is able.
  • God is just.
  • God is faithful.

Jeremiah 10:6 New Living Translation
LORD, there is no one like you! For you are great, and your name is full of power.

1 Samuel 2:2 New Living Translation
No one is holy like the LORD! There is no one besides you; there is no Rock like our God.

1 Chronicles 17:20  English Standard Version
There is none like you, O LORD, and there is no God besides you, according to all that we have heard with our ears.

Psalm 86:8 New Living Translation
No pagan god is like you, O Lord. None can do what you do!

Psalm 35:10 New Living Translation
With every bone in my body I will praise him: “LORD, who can compare with you? Who else rescues the helpless from the strong? Who else protects the helpless and poor from those who rob them?”

Exodus 15:11 New Living Translation
“Who is like you among the gods, O LORD–glorious in holiness, awesome in splendor, performing great wonders?

Psalm 89:8 New Living Translation
O LORD God of Heaven’s Armies! Where is there anyone as mighty as you, O LORD? You are entirely faithful.

Psalm 113:5 New Living Translation
Who can be compared with the LORD our God, who is enthroned on high?

So who is like our God in all the earth? None. Period.

Read between the lines. We are nothing compared to the Lord’s majesty. We should not even compare. We cannot even outdo nor outgive God. Even our life and breath is from Him! There’s just none like the Lord our God. Yes, we are His sons and daughters. But we are still NOT God! Put your trust in Him. Put your faith in Him. Give your Hope in Him. Totally rely on His great mercy and love. Let Him be your protection and defense! Let Him be the Father that He is to His son!

God is Great.

Anyone who has experienced God can attest to this – that He is great! No reason to doubt that. No argument about it, either. It’s best to understand why, though, as written.

Jeremiah 10:6 English Standard Version
There is none like you, O LORD; you are great, and your name is great in might.

Why? See verse 10 – 10But the LORD is the true God; he is the living God and the everlasting King. At his wrath the earth quakes, and the nations cannot endure his indignation.

Verse 3 onwards – Re idols: A tree from the forest is cut down and worked with an axe by the hands of a craftsman. 4They decorate it with silver and gold; they fasten it with hammer and nails so that it cannot move. 5Their idolsb are like scarecrows in a cucumber field, and they cannot speak; they have to be carried, for they cannot walk. Do not be afraid of them, for they cannot do evil, neither is it in them to do good.

Isaiah 45 New International Version

4For the sake of Jacob my servant, of Israel my chosen, I summon you by name and bestow on you a title of honor, though you do not acknowledge me. 5I am the Lord, and there is no other; apart from me there is no God. I will strengthen you, though you have not  acknowledged me, 6so that from the rising of the sun to the place of its setting people may know there is none besides me. I am the Lord, and there is no other. 7I form the light and create darkness, I bring prosperity and create disaster; I, the Lord, do all these things

Verse 12: 12It is I who made the earth and created mankind on it. My own hands stretched out the heavens; I marshaled their starry hosts.

Who else can do these things? Only the Great God! Our Almighty Father!

Nehemiah 9:6 New Living Translation
“You alone are the LORD. You made the skies and the heavens and all the stars. You made the earth and the seas and everything in them. You preserve them all, and the angels of heaven worship you.

Isaiah 37:16 New Living Translation
“O LORD of Heaven’s Armies, God of Israel, you are enthroned between the mighty cherubim! You alone are God of all the kingdoms of the earth. You alone created the heavens and the earth.

Exodus 15 – Song of Moses

2The LORD is my strength and my song; he has given me victory. This is my God, and I will praise him— my father’s God, and I will exalt him! 3The LORD is a warrior; Yahweha is his name! 4Pharaoh’s chariots and army he has hurled into the sea. The finest of Pharaoh’s officers are drowned in the Red Sea.b 5The deep waters gushed over them; they sank to the bottom like a stone. 6“Your right hand, O LORD, is glorious in power. Your right hand, O LORD, smashes the enemy. 7In the greatness of your majesty, you overthrow those who rise against you. You unleash your blazing fury; it consumes them like straw.

Verse 11 and following:

11“Who is like you among the gods, O LORD—glorious in holiness, awesome in splendor, performing great wonders? 12You raised your right hand, and the earth swallowed our enemies.

1 Kings 8 New Living Translation

22Then Solomon stood before the altar of the LORD in front of the entire community of Israel. He lifted his hands toward heaven, 23and he prayed, “O LORD, God of Israel, there is no God like you in all of heaven above or on the earth below. You keep your covenant and show unfailing love to all who walk before you in wholehearted devotion.

What more should I include here? What more can we shout about to declare the Lord’s greatness? His WORD confirms His greatness. His majesty is all over the place!

Psalms and a lot more of His prophets attest to all this. There is none greater than our God. We just have to trust in Him and pray for His greatness to be revealed to our blinded eye.

All glory to the great God of the Heaven’s Armies!

The Kingdom of God

The kingdom of God is an inheritance. It’s something we get from staying out of sin, unforgiveness, disobedience, and the grasp of darkness.

kingdomofgod

1 Corinthians 15:50 New Living Translation
What I am saying, dear brothers and sisters, is that our physical bodies cannot inherit the Kingdom of God. These dying bodies cannot inherit what will last forever.

Mark 10:14 Berean Study Bible
When Jesus saw this, He was indignant and told them, “Let the little children come to Me, and do not hinder them! For the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.

Matthew 6:33 New Living Translation
Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.

Who Will NOT Inherit?

1 Corinthians 6:9-11 Berean Study Bible
Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who submit to or perform homosexual acts, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor verbal abusers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God.

Galatians 5:19-21 New Living Translation
When you follow the desires of your sinful nature, the results are very clear: sexual immorality, impurity, lustful pleasures, idolatry, sorcery, hostility, quarreling, jealousy, outbursts of anger, selfish ambition, dissension, division, envy, drunkenness, wild parties, and other sins like these. Let me tell you again, as I have before, that anyone living that sort of life will not inherit the Kingdom of God.

Ephesians 5:5 New Living Translation
You can be sure that no immoral, impure, or greedy person will inherit the Kingdom of Christ and of God. For a greedy person is an idolater, worshiping the things of this world.

Colossians 3:5-6 New Living Translation
So put to death the sinful, earthly things lurking within you. Have nothing to do with sexual immorality, impurity, lust, and evil desires. Don’t be greedy, for a greedy person is an idolater, worshiping the things of this world. Because of these sins, the anger of God is coming.

Berean Study Bible
…Because of these, the wrath of God is coming on the sons of disobedience.

Hebrews 13:4 New Living Translation
Give honor to marriage, and remain faithful to one another in marriage. God will surely judge people who are immoral and those who commit adultery.

Entry to the Kingdom

John 3:3 New Living Translation
Jesus replied, “I tell you the truth, unless you are born again, you cannot see the Kingdom of God.”

John 3:5 Berean Study Bible
Jesus answered “Truly, truly, I tell you, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless he is born of water and the Spirit.

Birth is the beginning of life; to be born again, is to begin to live anew, as those who have lived much amiss, or to little purpose. We must have a new nature, new principles, new affections, new aims. By our first birth we were corrupt, shapen in sin; therefore we must be made new creatures. It is a great change made in the heart of a sinner, by the power of the Holy Spirit. It means that something is done in us, and for us, which we cannot do for ourselves.

The regenerating work of the Holy Spirit is compared to water. It is also probable that Christ had reference to the ordinance of baptism. Not that all those, and those only, that are baptized, are saved; but without that new birth which is wrought by the Spirit, and signified by baptism, none shall be subjects of the kingdom of heaven.

Live on His Word

1 Peter 1:23 New Living Translation
For you have been born again, but not to a life that will quickly end. Your new life will last forever because it comes from the eternal, living word of God.

Colossians 2:11-16 New Living Translation
When you came to Christ, you were “circumcised,” but not by a physical procedure. Christ performed a spiritual circumcision–the cutting away of your sinful nature. For you were buried with Christ when you were baptized. And with him you were raised to new life because you trusted the mighty power of God, who raised Christ from the dead.  You were dead because of your sins and because your sinful nature was not yet cut away. Then God made you alive with Christ, for he forgave all our sins. He canceled the record of the charges against us and took it away by nailing it to the cross. In this way, he disarmed the spiritual rulers and authorities. He shamed them publicly by his victory over them on the cross. So don’t let anyone condemn you for what you eat or drink, or for not celebrating certain holy days or new moon ceremonies or Sabbaths.

Rely on the Holy Spirit

1 Corinthians 2:4 New Living Translation
And my message and my preaching were very plain. Rather than using clever and persuasive speeches, I relied only on the power of the Holy Spirit.

1 Corinthians 2:13 New Living Translation
When we tell you these things, we do not use words that come from human wisdom. Instead, we speak words given to us by the Spirit, using the Spirit’s words to explain spiritual truths.

 

1 Corinthians 4:20 New Living Translation
For the Kingdom of God is not just a lot of talk; it is living by God’s power.

In reproving for sin, we should distinguish between sinners and their sins. Reproofs that kindly and affectionately warn, are likely to reform.

Whenever the gospel is effectual, it comes not in word only, but also in power, by the Holy Spirit, quickening dead sinners, delivering persons from the slavery of sin and Satan, renewing them both inwardly and outwardly, and comforting, strengthening, and establishing the saints, which cannot be done by the persuasive language of men, but by the power of God.

Romans 14:17 New Living Translation
For the Kingdom of God is not a matter of what we eat or drink, but of living a life of goodness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.

We cannot hinder ungoverned tongues from speaking evil; but we must not give them any occasion. We must deny ourselves in many cases what we may lawfully do, when our doing it may hurt our good name. Our good often comes to be evil spoken of, because we use lawful things in an uncharitable and selfish manner.

Righteousness, peace, and joy, are words that mean a great deal. As to God, our great concern is to appear before him justified by Christ’s death, sanctified by the Spirit of his grace; for the righteous Lord loves righteousness. As to our brethren, it is to live in peace, and love, and charity with them; following peace with all men. As to ourselves, it is joy in the Holy Ghost; that spiritual joy wrought by the blessed Spirit in the hearts of believers, which respects God as their reconciled Father, and heaven as their expected home.

Our Weapon For Battle

Hebrews 4:12 New Living Translation
For the word of God is alive and powerful. It is sharper than the sharpest two-edged sword, cutting between soul and spirit, between joint and marrow. It exposes our innermost thoughts and desires.

Jeremiah 23:29 New Living Translation
Does not my word burn like fire?” says the LORD. “Is it not like a mighty hammer that smashes a rock to pieces?

2 Corinthians 10:3-5 New Living Translation
We are human, but we don’t wage war as humans do.  We use God’s mighty weapons, not worldly weapons, to knock down the strongholds of human reasoning and to destroy false arguments. We destroy every proud obstacle that keeps people from knowing God. We capture their rebellious thoughts and teach them to obey Christ.

Prayer for You

Romans 15:13 New Living Translation
I pray that God, the source of hope, will fill you completely with joy and peace because you trust in him. Then you will overflow with confident hope through the power of the Holy Spirit.

All glory to God, our loving Father!

    3. To learn how to worship2_corinthians_5_17-dupe-close-800x800

You will be changed by starting to change how you think. We will pick it up from here…

betransformed

Ephesians 4:21-23 New Living Translation
Since you have heard about Jesus and have learned the truth that comes from him, throw off your old sinful nature and your former way of life, which is corrupted by lust and deception. Instead, let the Spirit renew your thoughts and attitudes.

Colossians 3:8-10 New Living Translation
But now is the time to get rid of anger, rage, malicious behavior, slander, and dirty language. Don’t lie to each other, for you have stripped off your old sinful nature and all its wicked deeds. Put on your new nature, and be renewed as you learn to know your Creator and become like him.

How is this possible? You will learn this in the Teaching – New Life in Christ.

BLESSED GENEROSITY

Proverbs 11:25 TEV. Be generous, and you will be prosperous. Help others, and you will be helped.

32-blog-proverbs-11-25-scene-words-300x300

The message is clear to those who are rich and able to give more. While nothing prohibits even the poor to share the little they have. Choose to do what is right. Follow the Lord’s way. Be a blessing and you will be blessed. God loves a cheerful giver! Love is almost always expressed thru giving and sharing what we have to others – not necessarily our family only. 

1 TIMOTHY 6:17-18 New Living Translation
Teach those who are rich in this world not to be proud and not to trust in their money, which is so unreliable. Their trust should be in God, who richly gives us all we need for our enjoyment. Tell them to use their money to do good. They should be rich in good works and generous to those in need, always being ready to share with others. By doing this they will be storing up their treasure as a good foundation for the future so that they may experience true life.

MATTHEW 6:20 New Living Translation
Store your treasures in heaven, where moths and rust cannot destroy, and thieves do not break in and steal.

MATTHEW 5:42 New Living Translation
Give to those who ask, and don’t turn away from those who want to borrow.

proverbs-11-generosity

LUKE 3:11 New Living Translation
John replied, “If you have two shirts, give one to the poor. If you have food, share it with those who are hungry

LUKE 12:33 New Living Translation
“Sell your possessions and give to those in need. This will store up treasure for you in heaven! And the purses of heaven never get old or develop holes. Your treasure will be safe; no thief can steal it and no moth can destroy it..”

PROVERBS 11:28 English Standard Version
Whoever trusts in his riches will fall, but the righteous will flourish like a green leaf.

PROVERBS 21:25-26 New Living Translation
Despite their desires, the lazy will come to ruin, for their hands refuse to work. Some people are always greedy for more, but the godly love to give!

PSALM 112:5 New Living Translation
Good comes to those who lend money generously and conduct their business fairly.

PSALM 37:21 New Living Translation
The wicked borrow and never repay, but the godly are generous givers.

All glory to God!

Hated and Loved

Proverbs 11:20 The Lord hates evil-minded people, but loves those who do right. TEV

2 Things. What the Lord hates. What the Lord loves.

7-things-god-hates-1

Proverbs 6:16-17 English Standard Version
There are six things that the LORD hates, seven that are an abomination to him:

  • haughty eyes – the arrogant, proud and conceited
  • a lying tongue
  • hands that shed innocent blood
  • a heart that devises wicked plans – schemers of evil
  • feet that make haste to run to evil – evildoers. Hostility
  • a false witness who breathes out lies
  • one who sows discord among brothers – one who makes disagreement rather than harmony. This is the root of quarrelling, jealousy, division and envy

These are detestable, abominable, hatable things to God. Anyone who does any of these things will not inherit the Kingdom of God.

  • Galatians 5:19-21 New Living Translation
    When you follow the desires of your sinful nature, the results are very clear: sexual immorality, impurity, lustful pleasures, idolatry, sorcery, hostility, quarreling, jealousy, outbursts of anger, selfish ambition, dissension, division, envy, drunkenness, wild parties, and other sins like these. Let me tell you again, as I have before, that anyone living that sort of life will not inherit the Kingdom of God.

What’s worst is that doer’s of these evil will be thrown to the burning sulphur and fire.

  • Revelation 21:8 New Living Translation
    “But cowards, unbelievers, the corrupt, murderers, the immoral, those who practice witchcraft, idol worshipers, and all liars–their fate is in the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.”

Do the right thing. Repent and turn-away from sin. Seek the Lord’s forgiveness and live your life in Christ. Then, you will know how it is to be in the Father’s love…a love given to all from the beginning of time – but completely ignored by many. However, you cannot ask forgiveness nor repent of your sin to a God you do not know, nor believed at. It’s important to know God first – thru our Lord Jesus Christ. The way to the Father. Our Savior. Our Lord Jesus introduced the Father to us by His works and by the very character He has.

Believe in Jesus then. Accept Him as the only Savior of your life – the one who can take away your sins. Repent, then live for Him. Make Him the King that He is in your life – to rule and reign your heart, mind and whole being.

POWERFUL INTERCESSION

DANIEL Chapter 9

New Living Translation

Daniel’s Prayer for His People

1It was the first year of the reign of Darius the Mede, the son of Ahasuerus, who became king of the Babylonians.2During the first year of his reign, I, Daniel, learned from reading the word of the LORD, as revealed to Jeremiah the prophet, that Jerusalem must lie desolate for seventy years. 3So I turned to the Lord God and pleaded with him in prayer and fasting. I also wore rough burlap and sprinkled myself with ashes.

4I prayed to the LORD my God and confessed:

“O Lord, you are a great and awesome God! You always fulfill your covenant and keep your promises of unfailing love to those who love you and obey your commands.

5But we have sinned and done wrong.We have rebelled against you and scorned your commands and regulations. 6We have refused to listen to your servants the prophets, who spoke on your authority to our kings and princes and ancestors and to all the people of the land.

7“Lord, you are in the right; but as you see, our faces are covered with shame. This is true of all of us, including the people of Judah and Jerusalem and all Israel, scattered near and far, wherever you have driven us because of our disloyalty to you. 8O LORD, we and our kings, princes, and ancestors are covered with shame because we have sinned against you.9But the Lord our God is merciful and forgiving, even though we have rebelled against him. 10We have not obeyed the LORD our God, for we have not followed the instructions he gave us through his servants the prophets. 11All Israel has disobeyed your instruction and turned away, refusing to listen to your voice.

“So now the solemn curses and judgments written in the Law of Moses, the servant of God, have been poured down on us because of our sin. 12You have kept your word and done to us and our rulers exactly as you warned. Never has there been such a disaster as happened in Jerusalem. 13Every curse written against us in the Law of Moses has come true. Yet we have refused to seek mercy from the LORD our God by turning from our sins and recognizing his truth. 14Therefore, the LORD has brought upon us the disaster he prepared. The LORD our God was right to do all of these things, for we did not obey him.

15“O Lord our God, you brought lasting honor to your name by rescuing your people from Egypt in a great display of power. But we have sinned and are full of wickedness.

16In view of all your faithful mercies, Lord, please turn your furious anger away from your city Jerusalem, your holy mountain. All the neighboring nations mock Jerusalem and your people because of our sins and the sins of our ancestors.

17“O our God, hear your servant’s prayer! Listen as I plead. For your own sake, Lord, smile again on your desolate sanctuary.

18“O my God, lean down and listen to me. Open your eyes and see our despair. See how your city—the city that bears your name—lies in ruins. We make this plea, not because we deserve help, but because of your mercy.

19“O Lord, hear. O Lord, forgive. O Lord, listen and act! For your own sake, do not delay, O my God, for your people and your city bear your name.”

He acknowledged WHO God is in His life. He acknowledged the Sin of His people and owned it! He humbled himself by admitting that he deserved what he deserved – to be ashamed and be punished. Then, he pleaded @ v16. A very humble plea – “We make this plea, not because we deserve help, but because of your mercy.”

There are many prophets in the Bible who has an account like Daniel. An intercession in length. However, we choose who we pattern ourselves to. I choose Daniel for this post.

To God be the glory!

These 3 are God’s qualities and gifts. Our loving God is merciful and eternal. And these 3 remain eternally with Him.

Now let’s explore a bit these gifts:

FAITH

Matthew 21:21 New Living Translation
Then Jesus told them, “I tell you the truth, if you have faith and don’t doubt, you can do things like this and much more. You can even say to this mountain, ‘May you be lifted up and thrown into the sea,’ and it will happen.

HOPE

1 Peter 1:13 New Living Translation
So think clearly and exercise self-control. Look forward to the gracious salvation that will come to you when Jesus Christ is revealed to the world.

John 14:1 New Living Translation
“Don’t let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, and trust also in me.

1 Timothy 1:1 New Living Translation
This letter is from Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus, appointed by the command of God our Savior and Christ Jesus, who gives us hope.

LOVE

1 John 4:16 New Living Translation
We know how much God loves us, and we have put our trust in his love. God is love, and all who live in love live in God, and God lives in them.

1 John 4:8 New Living Translation
But anyone who does not love does not know God, for God is love.

Late afternoon, I started my intercession. Opening with Psalms 148 and 150. God revealed some things. After dinner, we prayed as a family. We prayed for Czarina Joy’s school concerns, and Cyril Justin.

Enemy tactics revealed and identified.

  • lava man who watches
  • controlling and manipulating spirit of a girl
  • gorilla spirit

After praying, we gave the Lord our Royal Salute. BUT…

Enter the gray Lion…The gray Lion, the Lion of Judah who anointed us last Sunday at Church visited the Center this same night. We gave Him a royal salute. 🙂

Cyril, our only warrior among the intercessors, received two (2) more swords. One (1) even is from Angel Michael. The last one is when the Lion of Judah appeared. He is now a warrior with three (3) swords! Truly, Psalm 144:1 coming alive before our eyes.

  • New Living Translation
    A psalm of David. Praise the LORD, who is my rock. He trains my hands for war and gives my fingers skill for battle.

Glorious night indeed! We are looking forward for more! More of God! More of Jesus! More of the mighty Spirit of the living God!

All glory to God our loving Father, ever merciful and true! And to Christ Jesus, our King of Glory!
