The Rider on the White Horse Revelation 19: 11-19

11 Then I saw heaven opened, and a white horse was standing there. Its rider was named Faithful and True, for he judges fairly and wages a righteous war. 12 His eyes were like flames of fire, and on his head were many crowns. A name was written on him that no one understood except himself. 13 He wore a robe dipped in blood, and his title was the Word of God. 14 The armies of heaven, dressed in the finest of pure white linen, followed him on white horses. 1From his mouth came a sharp sword to strike down the nations. He will rule them with an iron rod. He will release the fierce wrath of God, the Almighty, like juice flowing from a winepress. 16 On his robe at his thigh[e] was written this title: King of all kings and Lord of all lords.

17 Then I saw an angel standing in the sun, shouting to the vultures flying high in the sky: “Come! Gather together for the great banquet God has prepared. 18 Come and eat the flesh of kings, generals, and strong warriors; of horses and their riders; and of all humanity, both free and slave, small and great.”

19 Then I saw the beast and the kings of the world and their armies gathered together to fight against the one sitting on the horse and his army. 20 And the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet who did mighty miracles on behalf of the beast—miracles that deceived all who had accepted the mark of the beast and who worshiped his statue. Both the beast and his false prophet were thrown alive into the fiery lake of burning sulfur. 21 Their entire army was killed by the sharp sword that came from the mouth of the one riding the white horse. And the vultures all gorged themselves on the dead bodies.

Rider on the White HorsePlease take careful note of the highlighted text.

The picture on the left is the closest portrayal of what I saw about 32 years ago.  I was a new Christian and had not read the Book of Revelation.  I had no idea of who the Rider on the White horse was.  I was also unaware of the great army, also on white horses, that followed the Rider!

Of course, now I know the Rider is Jesus, but here’s what happened to me 32 years ago.  As Paul would say, whether in the body or out of the body I know not.  All I know is I was taken and I found myself in that army, except the army was not on one plane.  The army was gathered in the shape of a horseshoe, and the horses, because they can fly, were stacked on top of one another.  Jesus was in the middle of the horseshoe and every eye could see him.

So 32 years ago, I believe the Lord took me into this heavily scene.  The first thing I noticed was there were no saddles or bridles.  I was holding onto the mane of the horse and we were riding into the battle of Armageddon.  I was mounted on the right flank and near the top of the stacked army, back about 4 or 5 rows.  The guys in the front were huge, and I remember thinking, don’t mess with them!  Then I was back.  The whole experience was about three seconds.  It was amazing.  I had no idea of what I had just seen so when I saw my pastor I told him what had happened.  He looked at me with a strange expression on his face and then he opened the Bible and showed me the passage that is above.  I was dumbfounded.

I was laying in bed in Pennsylvania a few days after my father had passed away last week.  I was thinking about the next time I would see him, he would be young and more than likely riding into battle with me and a host of others!  As I was thinking and praying the Holy Spirit pointed something out to me.  Now when He speaks it’s not in an audible voice, but over the last 34 years I have learned to listen to him and recognize Him when he speaks.  The conversation went something like this.

What do you think happens at the end of  the battle to the horses?

I have no idea? I replied.

He continued, Those horses are the Fathers gift to you.  The horse you are riding is your horse, forever….

OK.  Let me see if I get this.  The host of heaven is riding in on horses, this is what the passage says, and unless it’s allegorical, which I don’t believe it is, that’s going to be a lot of horses.  Then I started laughing and here’s why.  These horses can fly.  Think about it, the armies on earth are looking up at the Rider on the White Horse, for He is coming out of the heavens!  The horses fly and we are flying through the air with them.  So after the battle is over we will have flying horses to get around on.  I can’t wait!

Now some of you will scoff and tell me I’m crazy, and others will call me a heretic.  That’s Ok, but remember, we are the folks who believe in the virgin birth, floating ax heads, talking donkeys, coins that appear out of a fishes mouth, seas that part, staffs which turn into serpents, men that walk on water, a man who is swallowed by a great fish and lives to tell about three days later, lepers who are instantaneously healed, men who are born blind then can suddenly see and on and on it goes.  Soooo.  Flying horses!  You bet!

Sunday Go to Meeting Bun! Good Sailing!

My beloved father passed away quietly in his sleep last night from Alzheimer’s.  I am on my way to their home near Philadelphia… He was 94 years old. 

You’re in a better place pop!

L. A. 

1 Corinthians 15:13

2Now if Christ is preached, that He has been raised from the dead, how do some among you say that there is no resurrection of the dead?

13But if there is no resurrection of the dead, not even Christ has been raised;

14and if Christ has not been raised, then our preaching is vain, your faith also is vain.

15Moreover we are even found to be false witnesses of God, because we testified against God that He raised Christ, whom He did not raise, if in fact the dead are not raised.…

(This is written, in part, while in route to my parents house on the plane from Los Angeles.  L.A.)

My father passed away last night.   We got the call at 4:30 this morning.  I last saw him only two days ago, as I went from the Colorado conference to my parents house and stayed until Thursday.  We all knew he was fading and I prayed over him and told him it was OK to go home.

I counseled my mom too, and told her to try to let him go.  Of course she couldn’t do that, as she had been with him since she was 5 years old.  They were child-hood sweet hearts and as my Uncle George stated in a recent phone conversation, one inhales the other exhales.  

Mom has been in a state of mourning, as the disease took my father ability to communicate months ago, so in a very real sense, we lost him then.

A few years ago when he was still able to walk, Dad and I took a walk around the neighborhood.  We talked about many things.  He knew he was slipping but at this point he could still carry on a conversation.   At some point we talked about Jesus and the Holy Spirit.  My Dad was raised Catholic and I don’t think anyone had ever asked him if he wanted to accept the Holy Spirit.  He thought about it for a moment and then told me, “Yes, I think I’d like to do that. “

We prayed and he asked the spirit of the Living God into his heart.

I miss my Dad.

About 18 months ago, Peggy and I were getting ready to head back to Los Angeles.  We had popped in to see how he was doing.  Dad was sitting in a chair in his bedroom and he waved to us as we were leaving and said, Good sailing!  He had a big smile on his face and I’ll never forget how he looked.  These were the last coherent words he said to me.

Dad had Alzheimer’s and the disease slowly but surely chipped away at every part of him and stole his mind from both him and us.  During the last year when I would pop in to see him, I could see his eyes light up.  Somewhere in his mind, he knew who I was, but he couldn’t connect the dots.

My Dad fought in WWII.  He came back from that war shell-shocked and devastated by what he had seen.  He was a Captain in the infantry and landed on the shores of France, in D-Day.  He was awarded two purple hearts and the Bronze Star.  He never talked about the war until the 50th anniversary of D-day and then for a few days he was an open book.  He could talk about the war without breaking down, which he had never been able to do before and after that open window, on the 50th.

My Dad loved the game of golf.  He taught both my brother and I the game.  He taught us not only the rudiments and rules of golf, but what to him was the heart of the game, good sportsmanship.  He loved to see the little white ball fly through the air.  He loved the outdoors and the smell of the fresh-cut grass and dew on the greens, in the early morning.

My Dad was a good man.  He was honest and truly a man without guile.  He was a good father, loving and kind.

The scripture above is the essence of our hope in the Risen Savior.  As Paul says, if Jesus did not rise from the dead  then our faith is in vain.   For those of us who have been born again, by the spirit of the Living God, we know through our experience, that this is our blessed hope.  One day we will see Him, who died in our place at Cavalry so long ago, but then rose from the dead three days later!

When the trumpet sounds He will gather us to Himself in the air!  The Dead in Messiah will rise first and then we who are yet alive will be gathered to Him.

This might sound like fantasy to some, but it is the fulfillment of the promise, of the redemption of all mankind.

Like David, so long ago, I know I will see my Dad again.  This is the promise of eternal life, which is given to us by just believing on Him who was sent, Jesus.  If we confess our sins and ask Him into our hearts then we are then born again from above, and the Spirit of the Living God resides in us.

In closing todays Bun.  My Dad loved Jesus.  He prayed every night to Him before bed.  All of us miss him, but I know that he is in a better place and one day I will see him again…. Good Sailing Dad!

You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.  John 8:44

Who is whispering in our ears?  Who is the Father of lies?  Who is it that tells us we won’t amount to anything, or keeps replaying the same scenes in our heads over and over again?  Who is the one who pricks old wounds and plants the root of bitterness there?  Who is he who speaks lies to us and why do we listen to him?

It is so important for all of us to discern the Fallen Ones voice.  To know what it sounds like and when we hear it immediately take our swords, the word of God, and cut it asunder!

The evil one will lie to us over and over again, that is who he is and just like the character in The Lord of the Rings, Grima Wormtongue, he seeks to have us believe what he is saying and eventually rule over us.  I realize for some The Lord of the Rings is controversial and I understand why, however the scene with Grima Wormtongue is a clear illustration of what the enemy of our souls would like to do to each of us; have us believe a lie and then control us.

As the scripture says, when he lies, he speaks his native tongue, for he is the father of lies.  Let us imagine that a thought comes into our heads about someone we don’t like, because they have hurt us in some way.  We may think we are  justified in disliking them.  At this point we’ve bit the hook!  The lie is set and we are believing it.  What we need to do is pray for this person, for blessings in their life and believe in the good.  We never give out evil for evil, always blessings.  We bless instead of curse.  Jesus admonishes us, to pray for those who spitefully use us!  This is a command and something we must practice.  It’s not a personal choice.

In closing the Bun.  The words of Jesus are true.  He is warning us of what each of us will face while on earth.  The Fallen one will whisper his lies to us and when he does we must cut them down immediately, with the word of God, our two edge sword!

Watch this clip and pay special attention to the way Wormtongue controls the  king.  It is a graphic example of what the Fallen One and his minions want to do to us.

Sunday Go To Meeting Bun – Israel Update!

Posted by lamarzulli on July 6, 2014

John KerryThere is a prophecy which states:  “Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about…. Jerusalem twill be] a burdensome stone for all people….in that day will I make the governors of Judah…like a torch off re in a sheaf; and they shall devour an the people round about…” Zechariah 12:2,3,6

I re-posted this from Jerry Golden’s web site as I believe it is pertinent and timely.

Our media is not covering what is going on there.  Jerry acts as our eyes and ears.

The situation could escalate….

Please pray for the peace of Jerusalem.  L.A.M.

Happening Now in Israel

by

Jerry Golden

Once again the war drums are beating louder here in Israel. Southern Israel is being bombarded with thirty to forty rockets out of Gaza daily, with tens of thousands of families with children running to bomb shelters several times every day.  With homes being shelled and some landing directly in bedrooms in the middle of the night. We hear that the IAF (Israel Air Force) has bombed more empty buildings in Gaza.  For some reason that doesn’t seen like enough for killing Jews.

Our soldiers are grouping up on the Gaza border hoping that will frighten the Islamic murderers enough to stop bombing our civilians.  Or that the UN and the rest of the world will notice that war crimes are taking place against Israel practically on an hourly basis.

Hamas has threatened that if the IDF moves into Gaza that Israel will be very surprised as they can reach Israeli cities never before bombed from Gaza.  In the meantime Jews in southern Israel are wondering what is wrong with Netanyahu and why he keeps threatening to do something while they are being bombed daily. What is he waiting for? Does a group of children have to be hit with a bomb before he takes action to stop them?

Today I have to drive to Jerusalem and will pass several Arab villages where I have been shot at and stones thrown at us on the highway.  Our news is telling us that fighting is breaking out in and around Jerusalem and there is a fear of another Intifada – this time even worse than the first two.  One thing is certain.  All this will improve and intensify our prayer life.

On the way to Jerusalem we go through two permanent IDF checkpoints and sometimes with others set up along the way.  What is usually a 45 minute drive can take hours.

With the war in Syria now spreading far into Iraq and threatening to move into Jordan, this has Israel wondering what we should do- knowing that their final goal is to destroy Israel.  We see Obama once again on the wrong side, supporting the “Rebels” who are now ISIS.  These so-called rebels are very barbaric – beheading dozens, even hundreds daily as they move across the territory.  Most of the ones they are murdering are other Muslims who don’t agree with the Islamic ideology. At present it is mostly the Sunnis killing Shiites and setting up Sharia Law as they go.

It must sound like all of Israel is under attack – but that is not the case. If you were to go to Tel-Aviv today you would find the beaches full and life very normal.  At present it is in the southern parts of Israel and in and around Jerusalem.  There is also a lot of IDF build-up on our northern borders with Syria and Lebanon with an occasional rocket coming across the border into Israel. The IDF always responds with force but nothing seems to stop these Islamic devils.  Even with the Gaza border build-up of IDF military Hamas knows that if Israel comes into Gaza many will die and there will be a terrible amount of destruction. They know they can’t win but as I have said so many times, they love death more than we love life.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem, for our son Joel and all the IDF soldiers.  Pray for this ministry and your part in it.

Shalom, Jerry Golden

If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him? Luke 11:13

All of us have an earthly Father.  For some of us just thinking about our earthly father can cause us to spin out of control.  Sons have been beaten by their earthly fathers and daughters have been molested by them.   Others have been abandoned and still others do not know who their father is.

Our heavenly Father, is not like our earthly father.  He is loving, kind and good.  We are told in the scripture to call him Abba, which translated is like calling Him, Daddy.

For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. Romans 8:15

When we come to Him through His son, Yashua/Jesus we receive a spirit of adoption, and this changes our standing with Him.

For some of us Father’s Day is a reminder of the abuse we received at the hands of our earthly fathers.  The day is a painful reminder of memories we would rather not recall.

The good news and what will set us free is this.  We should pray and forgive, no matter what the hurt is.  If our father is no longer here on earth, we should pray anyway and ask our Heavenly father to forgive, heal and restore.  This is what being a Christian is about.  We can be free of the past, if the son sets you free you are free indeed.  John 8:36

In closing todays Bun.  My father has Alzheimer’s and no longer recognizes me as his son.  My hope is that the Lord will take him in his sleep and set him free.  I also know that I will see him again when we are all gathered to meet the Lord in the air,  for the dead in Christ will rise first.  1Thessaolonians 4:16

I love my earthly father and have good memories of laughter and love, so I am a blessed man in that regard.  Yet, I know my heavenly father loves me and cares for me in ways my earthly father can never match.   Happy Fathers Day to both of them, but first to my Father who is in heaven….

1 Corinthians 13

The Way of Love

If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. If I give away all I have, and if I deliver up my body to be burned, but have not love, I gain nothing.

Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. 7Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

Love never ends. As for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, 10 but when the perfect comes, the partial will pass away. 11 When I was a child, I spoke like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I gave up childish ways. 12 For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I have been fully known.

13 So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.

I recently sat down with a man who was having problems liking or even tolerating people he was working with.  He is a very brilliant man, and has a quick mind.  I listened as he spoke about the faults of his co-workers, his impatience with his wife, his aloofness in regard to fellowship with other people, his distancing of himself from his family, his brothers and sisters, and his overwhelming desire to be the best in his field.

I began to quote Corinthians 13 to him.   I said, it’s not about the end results, although they are important, it’s about the people we meet along the way, the people we share our time with, the folks we come in contact with.  The above scripture makes it very plain, love is our goal, our highest goal. However, this love is not something we can manufacture, it is a gift from the spirit of The Living God.

It is He who fills us with agape love and joy and this is how we can love those we are with.  It is not a love born from our flesh.  In abiding in this love we can pray earnestly and sincerely for those who spitefully use us!

Our goals are important and we should never lose site of them, however, if we are obsessed with them so that we will ignore those around us, we miss the mark, as it were.

In closing todays Bun.  At some point most of us will lie on our death beds.  I can assure you, we will not be thinking about our achievements at that point.  In fact one man whom I knew, who was a multi-millionaire, lamented the fact he hadn’t spent more time with his family, as all he thought about was amassing a fortune.  He died full of remorse.

The chapter above should be the goal of every Christian on the planet.  As Paul says, without love it doesn’t matter what we achieve, how much we know about a subject, or how much of a fortune we amass, without love we are nothing….

As many of you know, I’m in Peru, so I’m apart from my wonderful wifey of 30 years this September.    Peggy is a Proverb 31, WIFEY!

Thanks Peggy – All my love from 5000 miles away….

Proverbs 31

King James Version (KJV)

31 The words of king Lemuel, the prophecy that his mother taught him.

What, my son? and what, the son of my womb? and what, the son of my vows?

Give not thy strength unto women, nor thy ways to that which destroyeth kings.

It is not for kings, O Lemuel, it is not for kings to drink wine; nor for princes strong drink:

Lest they drink, and forget the law, and pervert the judgment of any of the afflicted.

Give strong drink unto him that is ready to perish, and wine unto those that be of heavy hearts.

Let him drink, and forget his poverty, and remember his misery no more.

Open thy mouth for the dumb in the cause of all such as are appointed to destruction.

Open thy mouth, judge righteously, and plead the cause of the poor and needy.

10 Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.

11 The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil.

12 She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life.

13 She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands.

14 She is like the merchants’ ships; she bringeth her food from afar.

15 She riseth also while it is yet night, and giveth meat to her household, and a portion to her maidens.

16 She considereth a field, and buyeth it: with the fruit of her hands she planteth a vineyard.

17 She girdeth her loins with strength, and strengtheneth her arms.

18 She perceiveth that her merchandise is good: her candle goeth not out by night.

19 She layeth her hands to the spindle, and her hands hold the distaff.

20 She stretcheth out her hand to the poor; yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the needy.

21 She is not afraid of the snow for her household: for all her household are clothed with scarlet.

22 She maketh herself coverings of tapestry; her clothing is silk and purple.

23 Her husband is known in the gates, when he sitteth among the elders of the land.

24 She maketh fine linen, and selleth it; and delivereth girdles unto the merchant.

25 Strength and honour are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come.

26 She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness.

27 She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness.

28 Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her.

29 Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all.

30 Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised.

31 Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates.

I spoke yesterday at the Prophecy Conference at the 412 Church in San Jacinto.  Gary Stearman, and Bill Salus spoke in the morning and their presentations were electrifying!

The common thread that connects all of us, and was the centrality of the conference, is of course, the prophecy that is found throughout the pages of the Bible.  Too many factions of the church have chosen to ignore prophecy and yet we know that almost a third of the Bible  contains prophetic texts, many of which concern the time in which we are living today.

There are many prophecies concerning the birth and death of Jesus.  I believe all of those were fulfilled thousands of years ago.   However, there are other prophecies, like Isaiah 17, which points to the destruction of Damascus, Syria, which have not been fulfilled.

Then there’s the Ezekiel 38 & 39 prophetic texts which discuss a coalition of countries, most notably Magog, which is Russia, and Persia, which is Iran.  These two countries, along with others listed in the Ezekiel prophecy, go up against Israel, in the later days! (if you haven’t read these chapters perhaps it would be good to do so now!)  With Putin threatening to invade the Ukraine one begins to wonder if this might be a prelude to the Ezekiel 38 scenario!  Bill and Gary discussed these prophetic texts during their presentations and then addressed them again during the question and answer period.

I believe we are seeing the signs that Jesus warned us would take place before His return.   Specifically, wars and rumors of wars, famines, pestilence and earthquakes in diverse places.  We are seeing signs in the heavens, and we are also observing the rise of the occult and the supernatural manifesting in ways that I’ve never seen before.

In closing todays Bun:  Only the God of the Bible can call out the end before the beginning!  Only He knows what lies ahead.  He has told us what will happen ahead of time so that we need not live in fear for: when we see these things look up because our redemption is coming!   He is coming soon!  Maranatha!

Sunday Go To Meeting Bun! God’s not Dead!

Posted by lamarzulli on April 13, 2014

God's not Dead!Synopsis

 How far would you go…to defend your belief in God?

Present-day college freshman and devout Christian, Josh Wheaton (Shane Harper), finds his faith challenged on his first day of Philosophy class by the dogmatic and argumentative Professor Radisson (Kevin Sorbo). Radisson begins class by informing students that they will need to disavow, in writing, the existence of God on that first day, or face a failing grade. As other students in the class begin scribbling the words “God Is Dead” on pieces of paper as instructed, Josh find himself at a crossroads, having to choose between his faith and his future. Josh offers a nervous refusal, provoking an irate reaction from his smug professor. Radisson assigns him a daunting task: if Josh will not admit that “God Is Dead,” he must prove God’s existence by presenting well-researched, intellectual arguments and evidence over the course of the semester, and engage Radisson in a head-to-head debate in front of the class. If Josh fails to convince his classmates of God’s existence, he will fail the course and hinder his lofty academic goals. With almost no one in his corner, Josh wonders if he can really fight for what he believes. Can he actually prove the existence of God? Wouldn’t it just be easier just to write “God Is Dead” and put the whole incident behind him? GOD’S NOT DEAD weaves together multiple stories of faith, doubt and disbelief, culminating in a dramatic call to action. The film will educate, entertain, and inspire moviegoers to explore what they really believe about God, igniting important conversations and life-changing decisions.

This may be the first movie which became the subject of the Sunday Bun.  The Wifey and I saw it last night.  I have two words for the film.  Push back!  What I mean is we are surrounded by the Darwinian paradigm, both in academia and the scientific community.  Our kids have Darwinism and by default atheism pounded into their head in middle school!  God’s not Dead, is push back against the prevailing paradigm.  I think it’s brilliant and while catered mostly for a college crowd, I found myself cheering for the Christian Freshman who chooses to defend the reality of a good God rather than write on a paper that God is dead.

Is God DeadI remember when I was a kid and Time magazine had a cover which posited that God was dead!  When I saw it my stomach knotted up.  I wasn’t a Christian then, but deep down I knew it was a false statement.

God’s not Dead, pushes back against Darwinism and says, not all of us are buying into this hooey that you’ve been ramming down our throats for the last 150 years or so!
In my presentations I often create a fictional account of a freshman college student, in class with a professor who is an atheist.  The exchange goes something like this.

College Professor:  Is anyone in the class religious, or more precisely a Christian?

Student:  Yes, I am sir.

College Professor:  Oh.  Well is God good?

Student:  Yes, sir all the time.

College Professor:  Then if God is good why does he command Joshua and Caleb to kill everyone in the promised land, including women and children?

Student:  I ‘m not sure sir.

College Professor:  Well, your god doesn’t sound good to me and in fact he favors one group of people over the other, isn’t that racism?

Student:  I suppose it is sir.

College Professor:  And isn’t the killing of men, women and children genocide?

Student:  Yes sir.

College Professor:  So your God is not good, is he?

At this point the class is laughing and the student has sunk in his chair.  However if the student knew about the Nephilim his answers would have been completely different and he could have hoist the professor on his own petard!

He could have answered this way.  The reason for the mandate to kill the men, women and children in the Levant is because they are not human.  They are the hybrid offspring of fallen angels and the women of the earth, called the Nephilim.  They were an abomination in the site of a holy god as the Fallen One seeks to contaminate the human g-nome in order to hamper the birth of Messiah.  Bully for you!

In closing todays Bun:  While the credits are rolling at the end of the movie there is a list of law suits which have been adjudicated because of blatant discrimination by professors who have an anti=Christian bias.  The movie is being panned by the critics, and while it is blatantly evangelical in its presentation and somewhat predictable, it is nevertheless push back against the prevailing Darwinian paradigm which is a system without hope for mankind.  God’s not Dead!

If the son sets you free you are free indeed!

A few weeks ago I was awakened at midnight and for the next three hours the Holy Spirit led me through a cathartic inventory.  I was amazed at the scenes that popped into my mind.  Memories from early childhood, boyhood and my teen age years all the way to the present.

One of the focuses was on words that people had spoken over me.  I was taken aback by some of what the Holy Spirit was calling to my attention and I realized these people, whether intentionally or not, had cursed me in some particular way.  One of the most glaring was when I was playing piano and an elderly women came alongside me and said, Is that all your going to do today? You’ll never amount to anything.  

There were other scenes with similar words being spoken over me, as this went on for almost three hours.  Now, we can go to shrinks and “discover” all of this and feel rejected, hurt, broken, and take some meds to make us feel better, or we can take all of this and lay at the cross.  This is what I was led in, the Spirit of the Living God had me take each and every scene and lay it at the foot of the cross.  Then forgiveness was added to the one who had hurt me as well as me saying, I am dead to you and you are dead to me.  I was free from the past!

He wants to take each of us to this place of forgiveness and cleansing.  We don’t have to carry the weight of the past around with us.  We can be free.  As the scripture tells us: If the son sets you free you are free indeed!

 

In closing todays Bun.  My mentor Wayne Kendall used to say, human beings are garbage dumps.  When he first said this I didn’t understand, but now I do.  All of us have words spoken over us which are not only hurtful, but can set us on path that we will travel unwillingly for years.  Today, ask Him to come in and take these ill spoken words.  Let’s bring them to the cross and be done with them once and for all.   We can be free with His help.  This is one of the secrets of the early church.   Therapy?  We don’t need no stinking therapy!  LOL!
