Dance like David

Express your joy in serving the Lord!

Just Dance Like David Did!

Wow! This morning there is a real presence of sheer JOY that engulfed my spirit as I worshipped the Lord!

Do you know that when you spend time with God in Praise and Worship you are actually Praising with all of Heaven? YES! You are! How exciting! What a blessingthat when you spend time with God in Praise and Worship you are actually Praising with all of Heaven? YES! You are! How exciting! What a blessing!

There is such a freedom to just let go and allow your spirit to soar just like David did and Dance!

Sometimes during the onslaught of the enemy it’s easy to become overwhelmed with circumstances.

Let me share with all of you a little of what our Ministry and home have been through.

Since January, there has been a series of attacks from every direction and the enemy has certainly tried to knock us out, but every time God intervened and turned everything the devil meant for destruction to good!

The next few weeks we will share personally what our family/ministry have gone through.

We want to encourage and inspire you to look past your circumstances and look up because God not only allows us to go through the fire He brings us into a deeper walk with Him!

He amazes us just how He intervenes because He delights in doing so.

If Praise be on our lips it matters NOT what we are facing! It’s all about positioning ourselves in a posture of praise. You really can have joy in the midst! I remember Him saying… Remain the same

The apostle Paul learned this and so can we!

Just get up and Dance like David did!

Fyi, it’s ok for the neighbors to think you a little weird- Amen? :)

The 8 Different Ways the Holy SpiritHoly Spirit Representing by Dove
Will Use to Communicate to Us in This Life

Now I will list the 8 different ways that the Holy Spirit will lead us and communicate to us in this life. So you can have all of them right at the top of this section, I will go ahead and list all of them in a bolded, numbered format so you can have all of them at a quick glance.

  1. The Inner Witness – The Inner Knowing
  2. The Word of God
  3. Leadings
  4. Check in your Spirit
  5. Quickenings
  6. Visions
  7. Dreams
  8. Prophecies

Again, I know some people freak out once you attempt to step into this kind of supernatural realm with the Holy Spirit. But this is where each Christian has to make their own choice as to whether or not they want to tread into these kinds of deeper waters with the Lord.

You can either learn how to do all of this with the Holy Spirit, or you can choose to let this supernatural realm go and just stay on the path that you are already walking on if you have never had any of this kind of activity before with the Holy Spirit. Many of you will know exactly what I will be talking about below, as you have already stepped into this realm with the Holy Spirit and have learned how to play this kind of game with Him.

However, if this is all new to some of you because you have never been taught any of this in the churches you have been raised up in, then you will need to make a decision with the Lord as to whether or not you will want this supernatural realm opened up for you by God the Father.

 

If after reading the captions below you decide you would like God to open up this supernatural realm for you, then all you have to do is go direct to God the Father in prayer and ask Him to allow the Holy Spirit to become very active in any of these 8 different ways in which He uses to communicate to us. Tell God that He has a solid, green light from you to open up this realm if it will be His perfect will to do so at your present level of spiritual development with Him.

If you put that kind of special request before God, then He will take you very seriously and He will then very gradually lead you into this realm and from there, the Holy Spirit will start to move in some of these different areas for you. The Holy Spirit will also show you how to discern when it really is Him communicating to you as versus when it is just your own emotions or imagination talking to you.

Now I will take you into the 8 different ways the Holy Spirit will use to supernaturally communicate to us in this life.

Teachings of Jesus

Christians are those who follow Jesus teachings and are also prepared to do what he asked them to do, to go out in the world and to let the name of God, to whom belongs all authority, be known all over the world.

“”I have revealed you {Greek your name; also in verse 26} to those whom you gave me out of the world. They were yours; you gave them to me and they have obeyed your word.” (John 17:6 NIV)

“5  May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you a spirit of unity among yourselves as you follow Christ Jesus, 6 so that with one heart and mouth you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.” (Romans 15:5-6 NIV)

“Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God.” (Romans 13:1 NIV)

“Endure hardship with us like a good soldier of Christ Jesus.” (2 Timothy 2:3 NIV)

“So I tell you this, and insist on it in the Lord, that you must no longer live as the Gentiles do, in the futility of their thinking.” (Ephesians 4:17 NIV)

“19 Having lost all sensitivity, they have given themselves over to sensuality so as to indulge in every kind of impurity, with a continual lust for more. 20 You, however, did not come to know Christ that way. 21 Surely you heard of him and were taught in him in accordance with the truth that is in Jesus. 22 You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; 23 to be made new in the attitude of your minds; 24 and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.” (Ephesians 4:19-24 NIV)

“Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.” (Romans 12:2 NIV)

“”You are my witnesses,” declares the LORD, “and my servant whom I have chosen, so that you may know and believe me and understand that I am he. Before me no god was formed, nor will there be one after me.” (Isaiah 43:10 NIV)

“I have revealed and saved and proclaimed—I, and not some foreign god among you. You are my witnesses,” declares the LORD {Jehovah}, “that I am God.” (Isaiah 43:12 NIV)

“1  Keep on loving each other as brothers. 2 Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some people have entertained angels without knowing it. … 4 Marriage should be honoured by all, and the marriage bed kept pure, for God will judge the adulterer and all the sexually immoral. 5 Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.” {Deut. 31:6} 6 So we say with confidence, “The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?” {Psalm 118:#6,7} 7 Remember your leaders, who spoke the word of God to you. Consider the outcome of their way of life and imitate their faith. 8 Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and for ever. 9 Do not be carried away by all kinds of strange teachings. It is good for our hearts to be strengthened by grace, not by ceremonial foods, which are of no value to those who eat them. … 13 Let us, then, go to him outside the camp, bearing the disgrace he bore. 14 For here we do not have an enduring city, but we are looking for the city that is to come. 15 Through Jesus, therefore, let us continually offer to God a sacrifice of praise—the fruit of lips that confess his name. 16 And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased. 17 Obey your leaders and submit to their authority. They keep watch over you as men who must give an account. Obey them so that their work will be a joy, not a burden, for that would be of no advantage to you. … 20 May the God of peace, who through the blood of the eternal covenant brought back from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great Shepherd of the sheep, 21 equip you with everything good for doing his will, and may he work in us what is pleasing to him, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen. ….” (Hebrews 13:1-25 NIV)

“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”” (Acts 1:8 NIV)

“Day after day, in the temple courts and from house to house, they never stopped teaching and proclaiming the good news that Jesus is the Christ. {Or Messiah}” (Acts 5:42 NIV)

“I have declared to both Jews and Greeks that they must turn to God in repentance and have faith in our Lord Jesus.” (Acts 20:21 NIV)

“When Silas and Timothy came from Macedonia, Paul devoted himself exclusively to preaching, testifying to the Jews that Jesus was the Christ. {Or Messiah; also in verse 28}” (Acts 18:5 NIV)

 

Jesus wanted us to understand that the head of every man is the Messiah, and the head of a wife is her husband, and the head of the Messiah is God. All Christians should accept that. But yes we do see that the majority does not and want to place Jesus as head of everything. It is true that for the moment the world is still in the hands of evil and that there will come a time that everything shall be subjected to the son. But then comes a time that Jesus himself will subject himself to the only One God, who subjected everything to him; so that God may be everything in everyone.

Recognising the humility of Christ, who who served, those who call themselves Christian should also let the greater among us become like the younger, and one who rules like one who serves. Whoever among us wants to be a leader must become servant of the others, and whoever wants to be first must be slave! For the son of man did not come to be served, but to serve – and to give his life as a ransom for many. As he also served his Father in heaven, he demanded us to help him  and not for a single day, either in the temple court, synagogue,church, public square or in private homes, should followers of Jesus stop teaching and proclaiming the Good News that Jeshua is the Messiah. Declaring with utmost seriousness the same message to Jews and other people from all nations. Telling everywhere to: “turn from sin to God; and put your trust in our lord, Jeshua the Messiah.” Making even more people into talmidim, or pupils and disciples, immersing them into the reality of the Father, the son and the Ruach haKodesh or the Power of the Most High His Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything that Jesus has commanded us.

All that call themselves Christian should acknowledge publicly with their mouth that Jeshua is lord, but God the Most High Lord of the lord of lords. Telling everybody that this Almighty God raised Jesus from the dead, so that we will be delivered.

For with the heart one goes on trusting and thus continues toward righteousness, while with the mouth one keeps on making public acknowledgement and thus continues toward deliverance. The one following Christ should not be afraid of the world and go into it proclaiming the Good  News of the return of Jesus and the coming Kingdom of God. Like the apostle Paul every Christian should not boast merely because he proclaims the Good News — this they should all do from inner compulsion. Woe is them if they do not proclaim the Good News!

“”You heard me say, ‘I am going away and I am coming back to you.’ If you loved me, you would be glad that I am going to the Father, for the Father is greater than I.” (John 14:28 NIV)

“Now I want you to realise that the head of every man is Christ, and the head of the woman is man, and the head of Christ is God.” (1 Corinthians 11:3 NIV)

“When he has done this, then the Son himself will be made subject to him who put everything under him, so that God may be all in all.” (1 Corinthians 15:28 NIV)

“26 But you are not to be like that. Instead, the greatest among you should be like the youngest, and the one who rules like the one who serves. 27 For who is greater, the one who is at the table or the one who serves? Is it not the one who is at the table? But I am among you as one who serves.” (Luke 22:26-27 NIV)

“26 Not so with you. Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, 27 and whoever wants to be first must be your slave— 28 just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”” (Matthew 20:26-28 NIV)

“Day after day, in the temple courts and from house to house, they never stopped teaching and proclaiming the good news that Jesus is the Christ. {Or Messiah}” (Acts 5:42 NIV)

“I have declared to both Jews and Greeks that they must turn to God in repentance and have faith in our Lord Jesus.” (Acts 20:21 NIV)

“19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in {Or into; see Acts 8:16; 19:5; Rom. 6:3; 1 Cor. 1:13; 10:2 and Gal. 3:27.} the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”” (Matthew 28:19-20 NIV)

“9 That if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved.” (Romans 10:9-10 NIV)

“Heal the sick who are there and tell them, ‘The kingdom of God is near you.’” (Luke 10:9 NIV)

“Yet when I preach the gospel, I cannot boast, for I am compelled to preach. Woe to me if I do not preach the gospel!” (1 Corinthians 9:16 NIV)

Christians should be those who keep to the Word of God, like Jesus did, and who remembered everything Jesus and his followers told and observe the traditions just the way the apostles passed them on to us.

“but the word of the Lord stands for ever.” {Isaiah 40:6-8} And this is the word that was preached to you.” (1 Peter 1:25 NIV)

“And the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable men who will also be qualified to teach others.” (2 Timothy 2:2 NIV)

“So then, brothers, stand firm and hold to the teachings {Or traditions} we passed on to you, whether by word of mouth or by letter.” (2 Thessalonians 2:15 NIV)

“I praise you for remembering me in everything and for holding to the teachings, {Or traditions} just as I passed them on to you.” (1 Corinthians 11:2 NIV)

Be a follower of the real Jesus of Nazareth who was known as the son of men and the son of God.

Devil’s advocate

Devil‘s advocate

Let’s play devil’s advocate on afterlife!

FIXION

Life after death?

The end of the world?

The final judgement?

Heaven or hell?

These are the million dollar questions on everybody’s mind, at least it should be, as the first question is already answered by itself.

Death of each and every body alive is unavoidable, the only question is: When? “Is there life after death?” becomes the most important question of your life!

This question about life after death that raises the bar to another form of excistence outside our flesh and blood.

Fix your eyes, not on death that is final, but on life after death that is the beginning of our journey.

There is nothing more important to us as living beings than that we have something we can describe as a soul that continues to exist after physical death and is everlasting.

Beware, without this, it is all for naught and  there was no point in existing at all for ultimately it does not matter if we live for a year or a hundred years if we do not have immortality.

Matters pertaining to the spirit  or soul, as distinguished from the physical nature:

Immortality

Immortality is the indefinite continuation of a person’s existence, even after death. In common parlance, immortality is virtually indistinguishable from afterlife, but philosophically speaking, they are not identical. Afterlife is the continuation of existence after death, regardless of whether or not that continuation is indefinite.

Immortality implies a never-ending existence, regardless of whether or not the body dies (as a matter of fact, some hypothetical medical technologies offer the prospect of a bodily immortality, but not an afterlife).

Immortality has been one of mankind’s major concerns, and even though it has been traditionally mainly confined to religious traditions, it is also important to philosophy. Although a wide variety of cultures have believed in some sort of immortality, such beliefs may be reduced to basically three non-exclusive models:

(1) the survival of the astral body resembling the physical body;

(2) the immortality of the immaterial soul (that is an incorporeal existence);

(3) resurrection of the body (or re-embodiment, in case the resurrected person does not keep the same body as at the moment of death). This article examines philosophical arguments for and against the prospect of immortality.

A substantial part of the discussion on immortality touches upon the fundamental question in the philosophy of mind: do souls exist? Dualists believe souls do exist and survive the death of the body; materialists believe mental activity is nothing but cerebral activity and thus death brings the total end of a person’s existence. However, some immortalists believe that, even if immortal souls do not exist, immortality may still be achieved through resurrection.

Discussions on immortality are also intimately related to discussions of personal identity because any account of immortality must address how the dead person could be identical to the original person that once lived. Traditionally, philosophers have considered three main criteria for personal identity: the soulcriterion , the body criterion  and the psychological criterion.

An out-of-body experience (OBE or sometimes OOBE) is an experience that typically involves a sensation of floating outside of one’s body and, in some cases, perceiving one’s physical body from a place outside one’s body (autoscopy).

These are definition and phenomena of near-death-experiences:

near-death experience (NDE) refers to a broad range of personal experiences associated with impending death, encompassing multiple possible sensations including detachment from the body; feelings of levitation; extreme fear; total serenity, security, or warmth; the experience of absolute dissolution; and the presence of a light.

These phenomena are usually reported after an individual has been pronounced clinically dead or otherwise very close to death, hence the term near-death experience. Many NDE reports, however, originate from events that are not life-threatening. With recent developments in cardiac resuscitation techniques, the number of reported NDEs has increased. Many in the scientific community regard such experiences as hallucinatory, while paranormal specialists regard them to be evidence of an afterlife.

The evidence of life after death is overwhelming, even if you are an atheist or materialist. In fact it must be scary to live in a world which ends with death.

Quo vadis post mortem? Have you prepared for the afterlife on the other side? Most people live their lifes as if it is forever and those who are scared of death have not dealt with the options available.

LAST DANCE WITH THE DEVIL

The two major religions of our world are Christianity and Islam. George, after his 23 years of practical experience of Islam and life-long experience of Christianity  has come to the conclusion  that there are more similarities than differences.

The foundation of both these religions is the Torah (first five books of Old Testament). The basic difference is about God, our creator, the Allmighty being one Allah or a Trinity (Father, Son and Holy Spirit).

The birth of Jesus is acknowledged by the Prophet Mohammed as a MIRACLE             ( Godly intervention ) however his denial of the crucifiction is far-fetched… the only logical explanation may be found in the descendants of Abraham ( father of faith ).

This fundamental belief  about the existence of an Allmighty God has been problematic since the beginning of Christianity… the Roman-catholic church comes to mind first, thereafter serious conflicts and battles were fought amongst churches as to whom EXACTLY should we ground our belief and dedicate our prayers.

The reader will be surprised to learn that through the ages there has never been a serious conflict or difference amongst religions or churches about the existence of the Devil. They all seem to agree about his origin, his existence , wicket and evil characteristics.

Satan, Diablos and/or Devil has managed to exercise his real power of confusion in our world… the internet is proof of his evil influence in that anybody can open this devil-worshipping and become part of their demonic worship.

On the outset of last dance with the devil, the reader acknowledges:

The birth of our Lord, Jesus Christ was a miracle,

Jesus was crucified,

Jesus arose on the third day,

Raised to God, our heavenly Father,

From where Jesus will return to judge…

Rev. 1:12 : “Don’t be afraid! I am the first and the last. I am the living one!”

“I have authority over death and the world of the dead.”

Rev. 22:12 “Listen” says Jesus “I am coming soon! I will bring my rewards with me, to give to each one according to what he/she has done.”

Rev. 22:20 He who gives his testimony to all this says “ Yes indeed! I am coming soon! ”  SO BE IT, COME , LORD JESUS !

The Devil dances around the conflict in man:

Romans 7:14

We know that the Law is spiritual, but I am a mortal man, sold as a slave to sin. I do not understand what I do; for I don’t do what I would like to do, but instead I do what I hate.

This then is my condition: on my own I can serve God’s law only with my mind, while my human nature serves the law of sin.

Romans 8:1,2, and 3

There is no condemnation now for those who live in union with Christ Jesus . For the law of the Spirit, which brings us life in union with Christ Jesus, has set me free from the law of sin and death. What the law could not do, because human nature was weak. God did. He condemned sin in human nature by sending his own Son, who came with nature like man’s sinful nature, to do away with sin.

The Devil is the master of dancing with the sinful nature of any human being, so much so that the strongest have fallen victim to his temptations in one way or another. Our understanding  of the spiritual warfare around us makes all the difference between life and death.

The Devil enjoys even more when his victim is unaware of this dance. These people live in denial of the problem in their human nature… this is usually an addiction to any kind of substance that satisfies the flesh… money, sex, drugs etc… the tragedy is that so many young people fall victim to this dance being unaware of the dangers.

Our Lord’s prayer … lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil… means that we are asking God not to allow the Devil to tempt us, in other words the Devil is always there to take us to a higher level of temptation. Each and every person will be tempted, even our Lord Jesus was tempted, three times we are taught how to deal with the Devil and his temptations.

Our young people should be skilled and trained to recognise the Devil in all his appearances, teaching them to resist timeously with an awareness of the dangers, not to proceed in the sinful direction… teaching them about the consequences of a sinful life, the hold that sin can have on your life and the fact the Devil will remind you every day of your weakness… loading your conscience each day with guilt… blocking you from receiving life in Spirit, the blessings from God.

Heb: 12: 5&6

My son, pay attention when the Lord corrects you, and do not be discouraged when he rebukes you. Because the Lord corrects everyone he loves, and punishes everyone he accepts as a son/daughter.
