1. Make friends with positive, successful, godly people
Proverbs 1:10: son, if sinners entice you,
Do not consent.
Psalm 1:1: Blessed is the man that walks not in the way of the evil and does not stand in the counsel of sinners and does not sit on the seat of mockers.
When Princess Diana died God said to me: The people you hang around with can cost you your life. It is better to have no friends than to have bad friends.
2. Be obedient to God and flee from sin, obey your conscience.
Proverbs 3: 24: Because I have called and you refused,
I have stretched out my hand and no one regarded,
Because you disdained all my counsel,
And would have none of my rebuke,
I also will laugh at your calamity;
I will mock when your terror comes,
When your terror comes like a storm,
And your destruction comes like a whirlwind,
When distress and anguish come upon you.
“Then they will call on me, but I will not answer;
They will seek me diligently, but they will not find me.
Because they hated knowledge
And did not choose the fear of the Lord,
They would have none of my counsel
And despised my every rebuke. Therefore they shall eat the fruit of their own way,
And be filled to the full with their own fancies.
For the [l]turning away of the simple will slay them,
And the complacency of fools will destroy them;
But whoever listens to me will dwell safely,
And will be secure, without fear of evil.”
A new testament scripture: Romans 1:18-32 Amplified Version
Unbelief and Its Consequences
18 For [God does not overlook sin and] the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who in their wickedness suppress and stifle the truth, 19 because that which is known about God is evident within them [in their inner consciousness], for God made it evident to them. 20 For ever since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through His workmanship [all His creation, the wonderful things that He has made], so that they [who fail to believe and trust in Him] are without excuse and without defence. 21 For even though [d]they knew God [as the Creator], they did not [e]honour Him as God or give thanks [for His wondrous creation]. On the contrary, they became worthless in their thinking [godless, with pointless reasonings, and silly speculations], and their foolish heart was darkened. 22 Claiming to be wise, they became fools, 23 and exchanged the glory and majesty and excellence of the immortal God for [f]an image [worthless idols] in the shape of mortal man and birds and four-footed animals and reptiles.
24 Therefore God gave them over in the lusts of their own hearts to [sexual] impurity, so that their bodies would be dishonoured among them [abandoning them to the degrading power of sin], 25 because [by choice] they exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Amen.
26 For this reason God gave them over to degrading and vile passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural [a function contrary to nature], 27 and in the same way also the men turned away from the natural function of the woman and were consumed with their desire toward one another, men with men committing shameful acts and in return receiving in their own bodies the inevitable and appropriate penalty for their wrongdoing.
28 And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God or consider Him worth knowing [as their Creator], God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do things which are improper and repulsive, 29 until they were filled (permeated, saturated) with every kind of unrighteousness, wickedness, greed, evil; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malice and mean-spiritedness. They are gossips [spreading rumours], 30 slanderers, haters of God, insolent, arrogant, boastful, inventors [of new forms] of evil, disobedient and disrespectful to parents, 31 without understanding, untrustworthy, unloving, unmerciful [without pity]. 32 Although they know God’s righteous decree and His judgment, that those who do such things deserve death, yet they not only do them, but they even [enthusiastically] approve and tolerate others who practice them.
3. Obey authority, be gracious, kind and nice
God has placed people in authority. If you are part of a church then submit to the leadership in the church. Ladies if you are married submit to your husbands. When police stop you, submit to their authority.
Stubbornness & rebellion is as witchcraft.
Discretion is the better part of valour. Choose not to fight and to be gentle rather than aggressive and over bearing. People don’t want to be around pig headed bullies, therefore you run out of grace with people when you behave like that. That can affect you at home with your parents, your workplace with your boss and society – friends who would normally have been supported you.
A friend of mine went for counselling with his wife concerning her gambling problem. I will never forget how he conveyed what the counsellor said to him. He said: “Just be nice, just be nice”.
Simple words, but deep, practical words one can all take heed of. How hard is it to smile and be nice? It costs us nothing, when we smile, we use less energy and less facial muscles than when we frown. I’m not saying you must walk around with a permanent smile on your face like a gormless idiot, but haven’t you noticed that when people have a friendly disposition it’s a pleasure to be around them. Often those frowning are manipulative, controlling and self-absorbed.
Let me qualify things a little bit; the bible is our final authority, if the government, your boss or your husband expects you to do something contrary to the bible then it is illegitimate, do not adhere to it. There is a difference between what is legal and what is right.
4. The three B’s that can cause you to go down:
Booze – Whilst it is not a sin to drink, it is a sin to be drunk. Unfortunately, many of us do not stop at one glass. More than one glass of wine. One glass can be one too many and two glasses is not enough. More than a glass of alcohol every day can destroy your inner nervous system, which can never be restored accept by a miracle. It can destroy your liver and kill you and it can cause erectile disfunctions for men. Ephesians 5:18: do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery (indecency) but be filled with the Spirit.
Boodle – Is money the root of all evil? 1 Timothy 6:10: for the love of money is the root of all evil. Money in itself is not evil nor good, its merely an instrument of exchange.
Broads – Many a Godly man has had his ministry destroyed by going after women he should not have. How many times do we hear that the pastor has run off with his secretary or the worship leader in the church? Be careful when it comes to relationships with the opposite sex.
Proverbs 2: 16-19: To deliver you from the immoral woman,
From the seductress who flatters with her words,
Who forsakes the companion of her youth,
And forgets the covenant of her God.
For her house leads down to death,
And her paths to the dead;
None who go to her return,
5. As you sow, so shall you reap
What goes around comes around.
As you judge, so shall you be judged.
If you sow sparingly, you will also reap sparingly.
If you give mercy, you will receive mercy.
If you are gentle, loving and kind – others will be gentle, loving and kind to you. If you are warm and friendly then others will be warm and friendly.
If you live by the sword then you will die by the sword.
If you are unfaithful and dishonest, others will be the same with you.
6. Put God first. Give God your first fruits
In other words, always give Him the best of your finances first.
Proverbs 3:9-10: Honour the Lord with your possessions,
And with the first fruits of all your increase;
So your barns will be filled with plenty,
And your vats will overflow with new wine.
Give Him the best of yourself when you wake up. Praise & worship Him fist when you wake up, don’t first go and check your messages on WhatsApp, fb or the TV. Go to Him first, set your mind on Him first, spend time with Him first.
his delight is in the law of the Lord (in His Word); and in his law doth he meditates day and night. And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper. The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind drives away. Therefore, the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.
7. Walk in faith and not unbelief
Unbelief will cause you never to enter into the best God has desired and planned for you.
Hebrews 3:19: they could not enter (the promised land) because of their unbelief.
Hebrews 11:6: without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
When Jesus died on the cross, He said: It is finished.
He did everything He came to do over 2000 years ago, He doesn’t come down from the throne every two minutes to fix things in our lives. His grace is already here to save, restore, heal and deliver us.
He broke the curse of the law, He gave us salvation, He opened the way for the Holy Spirit to live in the hearts of each and every one of us through His anointing, He provided the grace we need to walk in healing and prosperity in every way. The only way we can receive His grace for salvation, healing, deliverance, etc. is by faith. We need to come to Him believing that He is a rewarder of them who diligently seek Him. We can extract the grace He provided only by faith, unless God divinely moves on your behalf Himself, but even then it is probably due to the faith of others who prayed for you.
here to edit.
If you do not know Jesus Christ or if you want that assurance in your heart that if you were to die today you would go to be with him in paradise please pray this prayer audibly and with all your heart, this prayer requires voice activation:
"Father God, I repent of all my past sins and ask Jesus Christ (by the Holy Spirit) to come into my heart and my life right now. I believe that He died and was resurrected to save me from death and my sins. From this moment on I am now your child and will serve You as my Lord forevermore".
Latest news from Glen Stuart in South Africa.
Glen Stuart and Pastor Wally went to Noordgesig today. Glen preached to nearly 20 people. The power of the Holy Spirit manifested. Three people accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour. Four people experienced the manifestation of the healing power of Jesus. One person was set free from migraines and three people were healed of back pain. Some people were set free from demons. Everyone fell under the power of God. Many people were crying.
One must be careful that our time of devotion doesn't become a robotic ritual and without desire to come into the Holy of Holies, sometimes we need to press in to touch the heart of God, until we do that we are not really entering into the real intimacy with God. We should have such a desire to want to meet with God everyday, but often our flesh (sinful nature) gets in the way, so we have to keep pressavering (as a friend says) in prayer and worship until we take every thought captive to the obedience of the Lordship of Yeshua and can then enter a dimension of the Spirit where His glory is manifested.. A few points to help you enter in to His presence: 1. Check your heart, see that there is no unforgiveness or sin. 2. Desire to meet with God. 3. Expect Him to talk to You 4. Pray and worship with purpose.Come to Him believing and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. . 5.Relationship is giving and receiving its not achieving. You cannot impress God with your knowledge or works, come to him as a little child.
6. Pray in faith not hard.
Ssince the fall of man there have been two types of people. The sons of 'works' and the sons of 'faith'. Cain presented his sacrifice from the works of his hands, Abel presented his from the works of Gods hand namely; the "firstlings of the flock and of their fat", which in itself was symbolic of the Messiah who was to be the ultimate sacrifice for once and for all.
Hebrews 11:4 New King James Version (NKJV)
Faith at the Dawn of History
By faith Abel offered to God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, through which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts; and through it he being dead still speaks.
Blood is symbolic of life and as Abel's blood still speaks, Yeshua's blood still speaks in that we are not righteous through our works, but through the Blood of the Lamb which washed away our sin so we can enter into the Holy of Holy's and go boldly into the throne room of God without a mediator.
It appears the sons of works who persecute the sons of faith today still require priests to mediate for them as they carry out their laws and rituals, but God desires us just to come as we are in faith of what He did through His Son over 2000 years ago. .
Morning my brothers and sisters, I do not want to alarm any of you, but I cannot say it any other way. WW3 is imminent as mentioned in the first 4 trumpet calls (my opinion, don't shout me down):
- The first angel of seven sounded his trumpet: "And hail and fire followed, mingled with blood, and they were thrown to the earth" burning a third of the Earth's flora, scorching all green grass.
- The second angel sounded his trumpet: "And something like a great mountain burning with fire was thrown in the sea, and a third of the sea became blood" killing a third of everything in the ocean, including ships.
- The third angel sounded: And a great star, named "Wormwood", fell from heaven poisoning the water from rivers and water springs.
- The fourth angel sounded: The sun, the moon and stars are struck, so that a third of their light diminished to the point of complete darkness for a third of a day, even during the night.
It appears the Bankster families controlling our monetary system through the International Settlements Bank from Basel, Switzerland, conveniently a 'neutral country' ,are hell bent on initiating a war between USA and Russia. The Bank for International Settlements is autonomous, have their own police and answerable to nobody. These elite globalists have no regard for the citizens of the West, much less the East. Their agenda is not nationalistic, democratic or Christian. These power and mammon greedy elite globalists are out to reduce population, destroy families, Christian values and cultures as well as create a neutral gender. They own controlling interests in multi-nationals and mainstream media, You will see the same banksters who started the Federal Bank are involved in some of these secret societies like the Round Table, Trilateral Commission, Council on Foreign Relations, Royal Institute of International Affairs,etc. It was said by Professor Carroll Quigley of Georgetown University who studied secret societies for over 20 years, that Cecil Rhodes was the father of them. Bill Clinton paid homage to Prof. Quigley.
Whilst Russia, Syria and Iran do not have the same conventional weapons to withstand USA and NATO, the Russians have over 7000 nuclear missiles ready and able to strike anywhere in the world. With their backs to the wall, I'm sure they won't hesitate to come out with all guns blazing. This event will precede rapture (pre, mid or post) and the tribulation period with Armageddon following. I do not think there is a prophetic event that needs to take place before WW3 and the sounding of the first 4 trumpets. I thought God might have used Trump to stave off WW3, but it appears with all his good intentions he is held over a barrel by the deep state. We can debate peripherals until the cows come home, but war is imminent, prepare yourselves and your families with safe havens before its too late. It might not happen next week or next year, but it will happen sooner than we might think. When war is declared with Russia all ports of exit will be immediately closed and people will be drafted.
There are countries like; Greenland, Iceland and smaller neutral independent islands that may be safe in the event of WW3. Some African countries, like Botswana and Namibia may be safe, but beware of the war lords who might go around plundering. South Africa will not be safe due to its global importance and the Cape sea route. Steer clear of major countries with alliances, such as in Europe (including islands in the Mediterranean, N.Africa and Switzerland), USA, Canada, Mexico, Australia, NZ, India, Brazil, Argentina, Chile, and strategic islands such as Azores,Canaries, Madeira etc.. May the Holy Spirit lead you and preserve you to fight another day, for His kingdom. Some Christians think they do not have to do a thing despite their lives being in danger. Jesus warned us in Matthew 24:15-20:
“Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place” (whoever reads, let him understand), “then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains. Let him who is on the housetop not go down to take anything out of his house. And let him who is in the field not go back to get his clothes. But woe to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing babies in those days! And pray that your flight may not be in winter or on the Sabbath.
Whilst we know in that scripture He wasn't referring to WW3, but the tribulation, we can obviously take heed of his warning to flea such times of peril.
Lets not be so spiritually minded that we are no earthly good. Conversely, lets not be so fleshly and insensitive to the promptings of the Holy Spirit that we do not hear the warning bells or recognise the signs of the times. Abundant blessings.
