Prayer Request Update

Yesterday was the funeral and I am overjoyed and so excited to report that the man who passed did accept Christ as his Savior! Praise be to God! He is with Jesus now! Thank you Jesus!

Thank you so much to everyone who prayed for him! Please keep the family and friends in your prayers for this time and for their healing. I can’t thank everyone enough for their prayers.

I never had a chance to meet this man in person but I am excited that I will someday in Heaven.

Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.
Ecclesiastes 12:13-14 KJV

Urgent prayer request

To any who may see this, please be praying for Adam. He is Brandon’s friend who is on death row and scheduled for execution tomorrow evening. Please pray he will come to know Christ as his Savior and truly know and understand all Christ has done for us all.

Please also keep his family in prayer that they may come to truly have a relationship with the Lord and be blessed by His grace.

Leviticus 26

David prayed against the enemy conspiracies of the
wicked. The Psalms are filled with references to the plans of
his enemies to overthrow him. His prayers were the key in
destroying these plans and bringing him deliverance. David
prayed for his enemies to be scattered, confused, exposed,
and destroyed.
David’s struggles were with natural enemies. Behind these
natural enemies were spiritual ones that were opposed to the
Davidic kingdom. Jesus was to come from this line and sit
upon this throne. David was fighting something beyond the
natural. Through the Holy Spirit he was contending with the
powers of darkness that were set against the arrival of the
kingdom of God.
– Prayers that Route Demons

I had never thought of this before. To consider all the spiritual aspects of the Bible instead of reading them all as in the flesh, as just the physical components. I suppose it would make sense to also go through and consider all the spiritual aspects of situations you may never think of that way, considering that God is a spirit (John 4:24).

I’m working my way back through the Old Testament again in my daily reading. Usually I go through and read front to back, cover to cover, and then reread the New Testament again before starting over.
While working my way through Leviticus I came across chapter 26. I decided to try to read this chapter keeping in mind all the spiritual aspects. It actually made a lot of sense to do this and made a lot of sense to me concerning my history, from when I wasn’t living for Christ. I know that when a person gives their life to Christ and then decides to ignore Him, taking their life into their own hands and ignoring the plans He has for them, they can become pretty miserable. Not at His own hand, mind you, but because they are rejecting His perfect love. He can not dwell with unrighteousness so when we CHOOSE to live unrighteously He cannot commune with us in the way He wishes to. I’ve seen that happen in my life too many times that I’d like to think about. Even today I’m struggling with distractions of this world and working on cleansing certain areas of my life to get to where I need to be, of course those are my own standards. For all I know I might be where I need to be for now, I just want to improve things.

Anyway, I don’t have a whole lot left to say except that you should all read Leviticus 26 and think of it only from a spiritual standpoint. I’ve more recently been aware of the aspect that the beasts mentioned can also be animalistic spirits (demons that do certain things. Ex: Bull type spirits can cause others to be stubborn and rebellious).

I’ll share Leviticus 26 in this post. (Note: I only read the KJV as I have found it to be the most accurate. Upon research of manuscripts it’s the only version I trust. Feel free to ask or do your own research. It’s VERY important)

Leviticus 26:1-46 KJV
(1) Ye shall make you no idols nor graven image, neither rear you up a standing image, neither shall ye set up any image of stone in your land, to bow down unto it: for I am the LORD your God.
(2) Ye shall keep my sabbaths, and reverence my sanctuary: I am the LORD.
(3) If ye walk in my statutes, and keep my commandments, and do them; (4) Then I will give you rain in due season, and the land shall yield her increase, and the trees of the field shall yield their fruit.
(5) And your threshing shall reach unto the vintage, and the vintage shall reach unto the sowing time: and ye shall eat your bread to the full, and dwell in your land safely.
(6) And I will give peace in the land, and ye shall lie down, and none shall make you afraid: and I will rid evil beasts out of the land, neither shall the sword go through your land.
(7) And ye shall chase your enemies, and they shall fall before you by the sword.
(8) And five of you shall chase an hundred, and an hundred of you shall put ten thousand to flight: and your enemies shall fall before you by the sword.
(9) For I will have respect unto you, and make you fruitful, and multiply you, and establish my covenant with you.
(10) And ye shall eat old store, and bring forth the old because of the new.
(11) And I will set my tabernacle among you: and my soul shall not abhor you.
(12) And I will walk among you, and will be your God, and ye shall be my people.
(13) I am the LORD your God, which brought you forth out of the land of Egypt, that ye should not be their bondmen; and I have broken the bands of your yoke, and made you go upright.
(14) But if ye will not hearken unto me, and will not do all these commandments;
(15) And if ye shall despise my statutes, or if your soul abhor my judgments, so that ye will not do all my commandments, but that ye break my covenant:
(16) I also will do this unto you; I will even appoint over you terror, consumption, and the burning ague, that shall consume the eyes, and cause sorrow of heart: and ye shall sow your seed in vain, for your enemies shall eat it.
(17) And I will set my face against you, and ye shall be slain before your enemies: they that hate you shall reign over you; and ye shall flee when none pursueth you.
(18) And if ye will not yet for all this hearken unto me, then I will punish you seven times more for your sins.
(19) And I will break the pride of your power; and I will make your heaven as iron, and your earth as brass:
(20) And your strength shall be spent in vain: for your land shall not yield her increase, neither shall the trees of the land yield their fruits.
(21) And if ye walk contrary unto me, and will not hearken unto me; I will bring seven times more plagues upon you according to your sins.
(22) I will also send wild beasts among you, which shall rob you of your children, and destroy your cattle, and make you few in number; and your high ways shall be desolate.
(23) And if ye will not be reformed by me by these things, but will walk contrary unto me;
(24) Then will I also walk contrary unto you, and will punish you yet seven times for your sins.
(25) And I will bring a sword upon you, that shall avenge the quarrel of my covenant: and when ye are gathered together within your cities, I will send the pestilence among you; and ye shall be delivered into the hand of the enemy.
(26) And when I have broken the staff of your bread, ten women shall bake your bread in one oven, and they shall deliver you your bread again by weight: and ye shall eat, and not be satisfied.
(27) And if ye will not for all this hearken unto me, but walk contrary unto me;
(28) Then I will walk contrary unto you also in fury; and I, even I, will chastise you seven times for your sins.
(29) And ye shall eat the flesh of your sons, and the flesh of your daughters shall ye eat.
(30) And I will destroy your high places, and cut down your images, and cast your carcases upon the carcases of your idols, and my soul shall abhor you.
(31) And I will make your cities waste, and bring your sanctuaries unto desolation, and I will not smell the savour of your sweet odours.
(32) And I will bring the land into desolation: and your enemies which dwell therein shall be astonished at it.
(33) And I will scatter you among the heathen, and will draw out a sword after you: and your land shall be desolate, and your cities waste.
(34) Then shall the land enjoy her sabbaths, as long as it lieth desolate, and ye be in your enemies’ land; even then shall the land rest, and enjoy her sabbaths.
(35) As long as it lieth desolate it shall rest; because it did not rest in your sabbaths, when ye dwelt upon it.
(36) And upon them that are left alive of you I will send a faintness into their hearts in the lands of their enemies; and the sound of a shaken leaf shall chase them; and they shall flee, as fleeing from a sword; and they shall fall when none pursueth.
(37) And they shall fall one upon another, as it were before a sword, when none pursueth: and ye shall have no power to stand before your enemies.
(38) And ye shall perish among the heathen, and the land of your enemies shall eat you up.
(39) And they that are left of you shall pine away in their iniquity in your enemies’ lands; and also in the iniquities of their fathers shall they pine away with them.
(40) If they shall confess their iniquity, and the iniquity of their fathers, with their trespass which they trespassed against me, and that also they have walked contrary unto me;
(41) And that I also have walked contrary unto them, and have brought them into the land of their enemies; if then their uncircumcised hearts be humbled, and they then accept of the punishment of their iniquity:
(42) Then will I remember my covenant with Jacob, and also my covenant with Isaac, and also my covenant with Abraham will I remember; and I will remember the land.
(43) The land also shall be left of them, and shall enjoy her sabbaths, while she lieth desolate without them: and they shall accept of the punishment of their iniquity: because, even because they despised my judgments, and because their soul abhorred my statutes.
(44) And yet for all that, when they be in the land of their enemies, I will not cast them away, neither will I abhor them, to destroy them utterly, and to break my covenant with them: for I am the LORD their God.
(45) But I will for their sakes remember the covenant of their ancestors, whom I brought forth out of the land of Egypt in the sight of the heathen, that I might be their God: I am the LORD.
(46) These are the statutes and judgments and laws, which the LORD made between him and the children of Israel in mount Sinai by the hand of Moses.

I know about thy Grace

A Call To The Remnant

GodI know about thy grace
I simply look into the mirror
And gaze upon my face

I see no reason for His mercy
nor love He has for me
I see a man who was a prisoner
longing to be free

I see a man who long ago
found life though he were dead
A man who had been starving
and God gave him some bread

I see a man who walked in darkness
in whom there was no light
I see a man who was delivered
who was blind but given sight

I look away now from the mirror
and lift my eyes to glories throne
I see that I who once was lonely
shall never be alone

I see my risen savior
and He is high and lifted up
I stand there in His presence
for He has filled my cup

It’s filled with living water
my sin…

Smooth Words for Itching Ears.

For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry. – 2 Timothy 4:3-5
