You husbands likewise, live with your wives in an understanding way, as with a weaker vessel, since she is a woman; and grant her honor as a fellow heir of the grace of life, so that your prayers may not be hindered. 1 Peter 3:7

This passage of scripture can get both the sexes in a huff.  The women will protest and declare that they are not the weaker vessel, and the men will use this passage to wax superior over the women.  However, after almost 31 years of marriage I have experienced all aspects of this verse and weigh in on it now.

First off:   and grant her honor as a fellow heir of the grace of life,

Do we do this?  Do we lay down our lives as Christ laid His down for the church?  Do we grant our wives honor?  Do we cherish them? This is the question that each man/husband must ask himself.

Divorce rates are through the roof and it would appear that marriage is being attacked on all fronts, from the Gay agenda who are force-feeding gay marriage down our throats, to the under 30 crowd which refuses to make a commitment and thus, many are still living at home, or worse living with each other without a commitment, which robs both the man and the woman of a future, as without commitment either party can walk away at any time.

Here’s my public confession and I don’t mind doing this as I know most everyone out there has had the same problem at some point.  I wasn’t nice to my Wifey this week.  I was short-tempered with her and even mean at one point.  All of a sudden I found I could no longer pray.  It was troubling and on my run this morning I was asking Father where I went wrong.

As soon as I asked he began to show me how I didn’t cherish my Wifey, how I didn’t honor her.  I repented and guess what?  My prayer life was restored.  This is the power of the Spirit of the Living God in our lives; to correct us and keep us under construction.  In other words we are being conformed into His image and thus we will be corrected while we are alive in this body on planet earth.

These scriptures we read are alive.  They are there for our admonition and in some cases, like the verse above, they are a warning for us.

It’s up to the man to cherish his wife, to honor her and lay his life down for her.  How many men actually attempt to do this?  This is certainly not taught in our culture and in fact unless a young man is mentored in this he may believe, to his own detriment and that of his future wife’s, the model we see presented in Rap music or flashed across countless movie screens.

In closing todays Bun:  We husbands should honor our wives.  We should cherish them so that our prayers are not hindered!

 

 Hi LA,
I just read your  Sunday post and thought I’d share a thought. I heard a teaching years ago that talked about that ‘weaker vessel’ being more accurately rendered ‘more delicate’, like a beautiful china cup.  Strong and pleasant to behold but for a specific purpose.   And if you remember, God gave woman to His man, to add to what was missing in His man. God even called her his (Adam’s) crowning glory.  Men and women are different, and in marriage, they compliment and fill in the rough edges in each other’s very being. When those edges chafe, it’s time to ask the one who made us to help. You did, He did, and forward you go. It’s all good.*:) happy

23This is the LORD’S doing; It is marvelous in our eyes. 24This is the day which the LORD has made; Let us rejoice and be glad in it. 25O LORD, do save, we beseech You; O LORD, we beseech You, do send prosperity!… Psalm 118

Every morning, the moment in which I find myself awake, I say the above words of the psalmist, to myself.  I start the day by giving the Most High God the recognition he is due.   This psalm is a proclamation, a statement of faith.

This is the day the Lord has made:  We give the creator, Yashua/Jesus, the credit for the day, the creation.  In other words as John tells us:  Through Him all things were made and without nothing that was made was made.  

We’re not giving the credit to Darwinism, or the theory of evolution, but the creator of the universe, The Living God, who spoke everything we see into existence, from the galaxies spinning around in a cosmic dance above us, to the ant crawling on my kitchen counter scrounging for food.

Let us rejoice and be glad in it.  This next sentence is an admonition for us to rejoice in the fact that we are alive and “vertical,” and filled with the promise of another 24 hour period in which anything is possible!  We are told to be glad.  How many of us awaken to find ourselves in sickness, in financial trouble, without a  job.  In spite of our circumstances and the trials we face, we are told to rejoice and be glad. We are told:  All things are possible with God….

When we take this promise as a fact and couple it with the admonition of rejoicing that we are alive on planet earth and have another day to walk about in His creation, this should kindle our faith.  It should lift our hearts and minds and give us peace that He is in control and will work on our behalf.    

O LORD, do save: What do we ned to be saved from?  Our habitual sin?  Bitterness, anger, malice, lust, covetousness?  The list is almost endless.  When we cry out to Him who is greater than anything we face, He is faithful to save.  It might not be in the way in which we imagined, but when we look back we can see His hand was guiding us and in fact, His footsteps were next to ours as we walk through life.

Send Prosperity: This is not a name it and claim it statement where we proclaim we will get a new house or a new car, but rather:  And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. Romans 8: 28  Father will prosper us in the way.  Think about how many areas of our lives this includes.  Our marriage, our relation with our children, our business, our ministry, our golf game!  LOL!  He will work everything to our good, if we trust Him.

In closing todays Bun.  Life can be hard.  It can be filled with trials.  However, there is a time when we enter into His rest.  With that in mind, let us rejoice that we have another day in which to see our Father work in our lives through Jesus, and the power of his mighty spirit.

The Nephilim Agenda Conference ended last night.  It’s been good to see Randy and Caspar and Mike again, as well as meeting some new folks.  I gave three presentations and will speak again this morning.  We head out to New Mexico on Tuesday, and will be spacing at Calvary Chapel East, Wednesday night, and then head up to Dine Baptist Church in Farmington NM, on Friday night.  Please keep the Dizdar’s in your prayers, as Russ was not able to speak at the conference and he was sorely missed.

Here’s a chart from Clarence Larkin, one of my favorite dispensational teachers!  This will stir the pot a bit, as it were, as he points to the Genesis 1:1 scripture and believes, as I do that the earth was re-created.  Like Larkin, I believe something cataclysmic happened on the earth and it was destroyed.  The bottom line for me is this, we really don’t know.  If we are intellectually honest, we begin to realize that there are several positions one can hold in regard to the creation of the earth.  There are those who insist that what we read in Gen. 1: 1 is the first creation of the earth, and then there are those who believe in a re-creation.  What I like about Larkin is that we can see and grasp, at a glance, through his illustration, the progression of the earth with the climax being the creation of a new heaven and earth.

The Battle is in the Mind

Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. Philippine 4:8

Have you ever watched what you’re thinking about during the day?  Have you ever written every thought that came to mind?  My first mentor, Wayne Kendall used to say, the minds of  human beings are garbage dumps.

When I first heard him say this I recoiled and spent time defending my position, that we’re basically good and were not in any way refuse!  That’s when Wayne told me about taking inventory.  After a few hours I realized Wayne was right, as I began to see the garbage in my own life.  This garbage can be hurtful words that a second teacher spoke over us, or something a parent said that devastated us.  It could be that we were bullied as a youngster, or later in life bullied by an employer.  We hold on to this garbage, and it resides in us and it stinks.

The good new is we do not have to hold on to the garbage.  That we can be clean when we come to the savior of our souls, Jesus.  He can sweep our house and rid us of the garbage and we become a new person, just like the scripture tells us we are;  you are a new creature in Messiah, old things have passed away. 

However, the enemy four souls, will never let us really forget about the garbage and in fact, he will spend a good deal of time trying to put the garbage back into us.

Let’s take a moment and examine what Paul admonishes to do, and that is to place our minds, to actively engage our minds, on thoughts that are true, honest, just, pure, lovely, of good report, of virtue, and praise think on these things!

We become what we are thinking about.  We eventually act on those things we dwell on.  We are either slaves to sin or slaves to righteousness.

Paul admonishes to pray without ceasing.  I’ve written about this before and I’ll address it briefly here again.  Last week I asked everyone to pray for the Dizdar family.  All through the day and night the Spirit of the Living God would remind me to pray and I would do so.  My praying was not rote, nor was it forced into a time constraint, It was not flowery or filled with thou’s and thee’s!  It was from the heart and it was led by the Spirit of the Living God.

Here’s an example of keeping the garbage out.  If we find ourselves watching a TV show and we become captured by it and find that it is affecting our walk, turn the stinking thing off and spend time in the word.

If we’re watching a movie in a theater and scenes are beginning to compromise our walk, get out.  Flee!

I never went to see Maleficent, even after we had purchased tickets, because The Spirit of the Living God gave me a check and told me not to go.  I obeyed.

Are we thinking about things we shouldn’t be thinking about?  Only each person can answer this, but as the Word tells us, he knows our thoughts.  

In closing todays Bun.  Think on thoughts that are true, honest, just, pure, lovely, of good report, of virtue.  We should dwell on these thoughts and rid ourselves of the destructive thoughts that are either clamoring for attention or still needed to be cleansed.  One last item.  The enemy will always bring up an incident that we’ve already cleared out and try to tell us we’re dirtbags, and sinners of the worst sort, and accuse us over and over again.  The good news is Jesus paid the price, once for all men and women, and our sins are forgiven.  We are not garbage, but sons and daughters of the living God!  Amen!

Children, it is the last hour, and as you have heard that antichrist is coming, so now many antichrists have come. Therefore we know that it is the last hour.  1 John 2;18

John, the beloved apostle, wrote this almost 2000 years ago.  He warns those, who would read his letter, two important points to consider.  The first, is the antichrist is coming, and the second, that it is the last hour. 

When we read this we wonder how can almost 2000 years go by and still The Lord tarries, where is the promise of His coming, as Peter would write to us in another epistle?

Peter also instructs us:  But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day. 2 Peter 3:8

Are we in the last hour as John warns us?  Has this last hour continued for almost 2000 years?  Is the antichrist—what I would call the spawn of the Fallen Cherub—alive now on the planet?

Last Sunday we saw what I would call a Luciferian spectacle at the Grammy’s.  The week before we had Katy Perry’s Illuminati half-time show, at the Super Bowl, complete with references to the all-seeing-eye, as well as the woman who rides the beast.

We are far down the rabbit hole and I would go out on a limb and posit that the antichrist is most likely alive and well and living on the planet.  Think about it.  With the telecommunications that link us globally, the Super Bowl show was seen by millions of people all over the world. With that in mind the imagery that we see in both the Super Bowl, as well as the Grammy’s, is deliberately crafted and those who have given their lives to the Fallen One know the lateness of the hour.

Katy PerryThe audience, at the Grammy’s sang Highway to Hell, complete with glow-in-the-dark devil horns that were given out to the audience.

Note the picture with Katy Perry giving “homage”  to the horned one with her hand signs.

This is how far we have come.

I believe there is a cadre of men and women who know this is the last hour, except they hate Yashua/Jesus, they hate what he stands for, they hate the God of the Bible.  They believe Lucifer-the Fallen One—is really the good god.

Chris Blake stated this in Watchers 5, when he talked about the group known as, The sons of the Nephilim, who at some point will place their elect man, the antichrist, in the rebuilt temple in Jerusalem and this man, will proclaim himself god.

The Nephilim were the sons of the fallen angels that we read about in Genesis 6.  In Genesis 3, we hear from The Most High God, that the seed—of the serpent—will be at enmity with the seed of the woman.  This sets up the final end-times scenario where we will see the seed of the serpent i.e. the antichrist manifest on this planet.

In closing todays Bun: The antichrist is the seed of The Fallen Cherub and he will embody all of the power and authority Satan can give him.  He will rule over the earth.  I can’t help but think we are in the window of time where he will be made known to the world at some point in the near future.  I also believe the church will not see him revealed and for that I am grateful.  In the meantime we need to pray and stand strong and understand the tenuous time we are living in…. this is the final hour.

Who is speaking into our lives?  Whose voice do we listen too? 

Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things have become new.
When we read the above scripture by Paul it is very clear that if we are in the Messiah we are a new creature.  In essence, when we become born again, we are filled with the Spirit of the Living God, who will teach us in all things and we become a new creature, which is under construction until we leave this earth.
However, the enemy of our souls, The Fallen One, seeks to rob kill and destroy us of our destiny.  He will whisper in our minds and sow seeds of doubt, uncertainty and fear.
With that in mind we need to take inventory to see whose voice it is we are listening to, or who is speaking into our lives.
I run almost daily and it is my private time with the God of the Universe.  Sometimes during the onset of the run I’ll get a condemning thought, something like: You really  blew that relationship didn’t you…. (This accusation may point to an event that happened decades ago, but that’s the way the enemy works, he truly is the accuser of the brethren.)
Well, guess whose voice that is? At this moment, I have choice to either listen to the voice of the accuser or pray against it and realize that I’m a new creature in Christ and in spite of my failed relationships and the sin in my life: old things are passed away; behold, all things have become new.
Let’s take some extreme examples.  If you were a prostitute and were delivered from that sin and are now born again and spirit filled, do we really believe that the enemy of our souls is NOT going to bring your past up over and over again?  Can you imagine the guilt, the condemnation, the depression those accusations would bring?
This is why it’s important to understand and know that no matter how depraved our sin is, He forgives us and no matter how broken we are, He can heal us.  He loves us just where we are and as we move forward under the power of The Spirit of the Living God—the Holy Spirit—the things that held us in bondage, no longer do.
Whom the son sets free is free indeed!
We have a choice to choose who we will listen to, what thoughts we will entertain what other thoughts we will pray against.  It is literally a moment by moment choice that all of us in these there dimensional-biological suits, are faced with.
When the Holy Spirit brings something up in our lives that needs to change we must learn to heed His voice and while we are faced head on with our sin, know: that there is now no condemnation for those who are in the Messiah!
In closing todays Bun.  The enemy will always condemn us, that’s his nature.  The Spirit of the Living God, while pointing out areas of our lives that need to change, will do so in a completely different way, then by the power of the living God, we will change into the new creature that Messiah promises us we will be.
“Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts as you did in the rebellion.”
 
Pray Request:
Please pray for baby Ethan who was just born and is experiencing seizures that the doctors have no idea why they are occurring.  I’ll post more on this soon, but in the meantime pray.  There is a history of UFO encounters in the family including abduction.  Please pray…..

Something wicked this way comes….

And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: 2 Thessalonians 2:11

Today is Super Bowl Sunday. Millions of people around the world will gather and party-down and watch the game.  Then, at half time, Katy Perry will “entertain” us.  This is the subject of this Sunday Bun.

We are living in a post-Christian world.  When I was a boy and started school, some 59 years ago, the ten commandments were still hanging in the hallways, prayer was still allowed, and millions of babies were safe in the wombs of their mothers.

Now, 60 million babies have been aborted and over 1 Billion world-wide.  There is no prayer in the schools and if someone even mentions God at graduation, they face charges and lawsuits.  The homosexual agenda is being forced down our throats and taught to our children as an acceptable life-style.  As Christians we can not accept gay marriage, or the gay lifestyle.  While we are to love those who struggle in this area, we must discern between what the Bible teaches and the any-thing-goes morality that is now part of our culture.

Our movies, televisions and radios ooze out a steady stream of occult laced themes.  Witchcraft is cool—think Harry Potter here—and ouija boards are back and kids are using them.  This is a gateway to the demonic.

Katy PerryEnter the world of Pop music.  When I show Katy Perry’s ET video, much of the audience is shocked by what they see.  In the video her character appears first as the classic ET alien, then shape-shifts to a human, then at the very end we see that she is actually a chimera, half human from the waist up and a fawn from the waist down.

I would posit that this is very deliberate and in fact is an echo of what we read about in Genesis 6, and also in The book of Enoch.  The angels sinned against the animal kingdom….

MadonnaWhen Madonna and Beyonce gave their half-time shows at the super bowl, it was an occult event.  When Katy Perry sang at the Grammy’s it was a blatant occult event.

What I believe we will see this half-time show—and I hope I’m wrong—is an open worship of the Fallen Cherub, Lucifer.

For the millions of people who watch the upcoming spectacle it will seem like harmless entertainment, as they munch on chips and wash it down with their favorite beverage.  However, what is really going on, is a Luciferian initiation and unless a person deliberately rebukes it and casts it down, they are giving it permission to enter their minds and souls.

In closing todays Bun.  There is a dark agenda.  The Prince of the Power of the Air, the Prince of this world, has set his plan in motion and it is to ensure the hearts and minds of the people of the earth.  Take a good look at Madonna, who is dressed as a Babylonian priestess.  This was at the Superbowl.

So today, if you watch the game, when the half-time show begins, stay in prayer.  Pray against it and keep your eyes and ears open.  I’ll be reporting on it tomorrow on the BLOG.

The ruler of this world is alive and well,  however, Yashua/Jesus came to destroy the works of the devil and so greater is He that is in us than he that is in the world.  

Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Ephesians 6.

“A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, even as I have loved you, that you also love one another.  “By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.” John 13:35

Notice what Yashua/Jesus says here, that people will know we His disciples by the love we have for one another.  This is our ultimate witness to those around us.  Being His disciple is not about how many books we’ve read, or all the head knowledge or degrees that hang on our walls.

Paul admonishes us:  

Now about food sacrificed to idols: We know that “We all possess knowledge.” But knowledge puffs up while love builds up.  1 Corinthians 8:1

Sometimes we can lose sight of Jesus’ admonition and become absorbed in what we think we know.  However, I would posit that in the end it all comes down to the love that we show to those around us.  This love can not be manufactured.  It’s not something we can somehow turn on by ourselves.  This love–Agape in the Greek—comes from the indwelling of the Spirit of the Living God.  He can fill us with this love on a daily basis, but we can also choose not to be filled.

Holding bitterness in out hearts toward anyone or any circumstance in our lives, can be a deterrent to God’s love working through us.  In other words if we are consumed by bitterness it’s hard for His love to come through us, as we have chosen to block it by our own actions.

We love each other because He first loved us.  We love each other because the same spirit that resides in us resides in others who have believed in Him who was sent to redeem the whole world, through his giving of his body on Calvary for the saving of our souls.

This love can be a witness to those around us.  People watch us  to see how we react.  When a situation doesn’t go our way do we react in love?  When  someone cuts us off on the freeway do we pray for the driver or flip him or her the bird?

The Body of the Anointed One—or those who believe on Him who was sent—is at best fractured.  Recently I posted on the Cepher Bible and a certain radio host blasted away at me essentially hitting me over the head with the King James Only claim.  He never contacted me, he just blasted away.  How does that match up with the above phrase?  I love the King James, but I read many translations including the Interlinear Bible.  I realize the importance of scripture and certainly put the King James Bible in a class by itself, but does this warrant the blasting away that happened?

In some ways it’s not what we accomplish or how “right” we may be, it’s the interaction between people that we encounter along the way.  It’s about the love we show toward one another.

I’ll close with the KJV of 1 Corithians 13. (Please substitute love for charity.)

Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.

2 And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing.

3 And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.

4 Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,

5 Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;

6 Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;

7 Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.

8 Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there beknowledge, it shall vanish away.

9 For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.

10 But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.

11 When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.

12 For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.

13 And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.

In the end it all comes down to the love we show each other….

If the Son sets you free you are free indeed!

John 8:36

Getting Free can Come with a Price!

In the course of ministering over the years I have seen people get free and then go right back to the same addiction, cycle of depression, abuse, old habits, or whatever they have been delivered of.

The enemy comes to rob, kill and destroy and he hates when the Son sets us free.  Getting free can come with a price and sometimes the enemy of our souls want to derail our new freedom.

Yashua/Jesus came to set the captives free.  He has the power to do this and we read about this in the good news of the Gospels.  However, what most of us don’t get, is that the enemy will seek to destroy us at our new birth.  He will seek to put us back in the box of whatever the Lord has set us free from.  Some time he might wait a year before he strikes.  Other times it will be right after the Lord has set us free.

This pulling and tugging from the enemy takes place in our minds.  We are told in James 1;14:  But each one is tempted when he is carried away and enticed by his own lust. 15Then when lust has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and when sin is accomplished, it brings forth death.…

I’ve blogged about this numerous times and will do so again, that we must learn to take every thought captive.  It’s only by watching what we are thinking and rebuking what doesn’t mesh with the word of God, that we can stay free.

We also must learn to flee when it’s appropriate to do so.  In other words if a person was set free from cocaine addiction without withdrawals and then meets  his former dealer at a party, this may be a good time to flee the party! Run for the nearest exit!

There are certain movies I won’t watch or take in to my spirit man.  Thor II, is a perfect example.  We got up after half an hour and bailed.  It was dark and demonic and I wondered to myself afterward what I was doing there in the first place.

As a Watchman I wanted to see both Thor II, and Maleficent.  Peggy and I had bought tickets to see Maleficent, and while we were eating lunch the Spirit of the Living God told me straight up, don’t go to Maleficent.  We were obedient and didn’t go.  Natalina, from Extraordinary Intelligence, was able to see the movie and she wrote the piece which I then posted on the blog.  I was obedient and fled the theater!

In closing todays Bun.  We must be on our guard because: Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. 1 Peter 5:8

This admonition by Paul is still in operation today and we would do well to heed its warning.  The enemy is always ready to try to make us go back in the box. However, when we think he’s prowling about a good scripture to hurl at him is this:  You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world. 1 John 4:4

We should be really ticked off when he tries his tricks on us.  Be angry and do not sin!

The Anvil in the forge of God.

When we read the accounts of Abraham, Issac, Jacob, Moses and pretty much any Biblical character throughout history, all have one thing in common and it is this.  They all spend time on the Anvil in Gods forge.  Moses, for instance spends 40 years tending sheep.  Ever wonder what went on during those 40 years?

Paul spends about 14 years before he begins his ministry.  It would be interesting if there was a diary of what Moses and Paul learned during those years.

I would venture to say this, that everyone who is used by The Most High God, spends time on His anvil and guess what?  This process will produce the following attributes.

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

Galatians 5:5

We just don’t wake up on a Monday morning and suddenly find ourselves walking with and in these attributes.  This is where the anvil and forge come in to play.

In some ways we are literally pounded into shape on Gods “cosmic” anvil.  We are re-made, into the image and likeness of the risen savior, Jesus.  We never reach perfection and this process continues throughout our Christian walk, but we are certainly in the process of being perfected and as Paul tells us, one day we will know as we are known. 

In the meantime we are taught by the Spirit of the Living God.  Jesus tells us:

But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you. John 14: 26

How do we go from being self obsessed, selfish people into the image and likeness of our risen Savior?  The Spirit of the Living God gives us a glimpse of who we are, with our sin nature in tact.  This is when we are placed on the anvil.  Then He begins to reshape us.  Sometimes it can take years to mold a man or a women into what He wants us to be.  The process can be painful at times.  It can also leave us feeling defeated, hopeless and wondering if the reshaping will ever end.  The good news is, The Master Craftsman knows what He is doing.  He knows where to apply the hammer to shatter old concepts or old thinking patterns.  He knows when to turn up the heat in order to soften us so He can then reshape us.  He knows when to plunge us into a cold bath, to wake us up from the delusion of sin.

This process takes years and is not something that man or woman can create in him or herself.  It is done by the God’s Spirit, and the fruits of it are listed in the Galatians chapter above.

Don’t be afraid of the anvil in God’s Forge, for He is a Master craftsman and in the end He will produce an incredible work in us!
