Examples of Holy Spirit baptism - John 14:17 Acts 20:22
He laid hands on them and commanded, "Receive Ye the holy Ghost"
Acts 2 Jesus had given his disciples command concerning going to Jerusalem.
Holy Spirit is the paraclete /comforter
Holy Spirit is God, the 3rd person of the trinity
It is important that we understand his deity with the Father.
John 16 - to glorify the son who came the glorify the Father
The person of the Holy Spirit is not an "essence" or a "wind".
Just as the person he Father and the person or the Son.
Jesus commanded them to wait for the promise of the Father.
Jesus speaks of salvation in the gospels:
New Covenant was established for the Jews and for ALL who call upon His name.
Paul the apostle attests to this in Romans 1:16 - I am not ashamed of the Gospel For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.
John records in John 3:16, - God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son that whosoever believes in him shall not perish but have everlasting life.
It is expedient that I go away.
In John 16 He spoke of the importance and promise of the Holy Spirit for those who believe.
If I go not away, the comforter cannot come.
4But these things have I told you, that when the time shall come, ye may remember that I told you of them. And these things I said not unto you at the beginning, because I was with you. 5But now I go my way to him that sent me; and none of you asketh me, Whither goest thou? 6But because I have said these things unto you, sorrow hath filled your heart. 7Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you. 8And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: 9Of sin, because they believe not on me; 10Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more;
1Cor 6 know ye not that your body is the temple, therefore glorify God in your spirit and in your body.
50 days after the resurrection, Pentecost brought the coming of the Holy Spirit.
THE FIRST PASSOVER -
Blood was applied to the doorposts of the Hebrews
And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where ye are: and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and the plague shall not be upon you to destroy you, when I smite the land of Egypt. God said, "If I see the blood I will pass over you." Exodus 12:13
The people of Israel were delivered out of slavery by the blood of the lamb.
The law of Moses 50 days later the blood of the lamb delivered from death.
pillars of fire led them out!
They were translated into the kingdom.
We are exposed to false gods, false doctrines and we are engulfed in an atmosphere of sin, darkness and wickedness but we are no longer in sin and no longer in darkness.
Be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Holy Spirit leads into all truth.
Be led and directed into the promises and victory he has prepared for us.
Know that we are the head and not the tail, above only and not beneath.
Because of the blood of Jesus, sin has no more dominion over us. No matter how much will-power we have, there is on other power over the powers of darkness. We cannot outsmart Satan. Our hope is only in the Lord.
We have no might against the powers of darkness without the Spirit.
Victory is not in a mindset, but in the power of God.
"No man comes to the father except the Holy Spirit draw him."
The work of Holy Spirit is to reveal the righteousness of God.
Jesus has come and redeemed us by his sacrifice.
He became sin for us when he knew no sin.
He showed us how to walk in righteousness.
Not by works of righteousness but eh love of God is revealed by the indwelling presesnce of Holy Spirit.
He lets us know we are the sons of God.
He empowers us to live a life that glorifies God!
'The blood delivers us. Holy Spirit Spirit directs and empowers us to live a life in power over the enemy.
4"No man comes to the father except the Holy Spirit draw him. There is "protection, provision and purpose in our lives if we will obey.
"Let my People Go!"
God gave Moses the law in tablets on Mt. Sinai.
Jesus rose from the dead and spent time with his disciples.
We can know his promises standards and blessings If we obey these laws and honor him.
There is a purpose and a plan that God created for us. Jeremiah 29:11 I have thoughts concerning you.
"I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. 12 Then shall ye call upon me....
Learn to operate in God's timing.
When God delivered the Israelites He gave them direction and provision
We must not only be filled with the Spirit but continually led in a time of refreshing.
In the New Testament the people of God were often re-filled.
Hold fast to what we have heard
Stay filled - keep the fire by praying in the Holy Ghost
Keep charged up in the Spirit.
Like an alternator.
Old testament Hebrews were led by a pillar of fire at night and by a cloud in daytime.
Be led by the Spirit and you always walk in the protection and provision of God.
The presence of Holy Spirit is important in this hour.
Recognize Him, give heed to the word of God, hear what the spirit is saying to the church
There is confusion on all levels through many philosophies and opinions that are promoted trough the airwaves.
There is misinformation, deception, falsehoods and spirits of deception
What is the Spirit of Truth Saying?
Isaiah 30:21 And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye" in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left.
Jesus prayed for his disciples before being delivered up -
John 17:17 Sanctify them by thy word, thy word is truth
Study to show yourselves approved unto God. rightly dividing the word of God.
The Holy Ghost wrote and is he only one equipped to bring understanding of the word.
The Work, the Personality and presence of God.
Recognize great things he s doing this hour
They didn't move when the cloud moved.
Numbers 9 Holy Spirit followed in the appearance of fire until the morning and a pillar of cloud by day until he moved.
When the cloud moved they were to move, When it stayed still they were to stay still.
At such times they rested in their tents. They moved when the Spirit of God moved them.
Listen for HIs voice, there are times to abide -
An example can be found in Isaiah 26:20 "shut the door around you until the indignation be overpast." Could it be that we are receiving this directive to abide while he does a work in us as individuals and as a body of Christ.
He is checking our hearts and aligning us for this last day warfare.
We must Lay aside every weight and every sin that easily overtakes us. Run the race with patience. We we will be free because we have put in the time of preparation for the time to move.
Life in the spirit is one being filled, led and walking in the power of God.
1Cor. 2 speaks of the wisdom of man verses the wisdom of God.
The world is trying to overpower God's wisdom with technology and doctrines of men.
These ways lead to death. Prov. 14:12 There is a way that seemeth right unto a man..."
Choose God's Ways!
Obey the wisdom of the Word of God.
find recording here
"What fellowship has light with darkness"
We know nothing but Jesus Christ.
One mediator. No other name, He is the way the truth and the life. The only way!
Holy Ghost gives us power to boldly proclaim the name of Jesus out of sincerity.
Paul said, I determined not to know anything among you save Jesus Christ. in demonstration of the spirit, not with enticing words of man's wisdom.
Holy Spirit gives power and faith to stand in the power of God.
We must commit ourselves to the word of God and prayer.
Develop a greater hunger for "every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God." (Matt. 4:4)
Stay in God's timing for his purposes like Paul did.
Philippians 3:13-14 13 Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, 14 I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
Be faithful with the time you have. Look forward to our glorious future.
There are challenges we haven't faced before but God is faithful.
No weapon can prosper against you. Nothing can separate you from His love.
We must fulfill our love for HIm this day. Tomorrow will take are of itself.
We have a new covenant with deeper and greater promises.
John 14 Old Testament God moved upon men for temporary demostration. Now he is not just upon us but in us.
"He dwells with you and shall be in you.
John 14:15 Don't expect blessings if you are walking in disobedience.
Do what He gave you to do.
Do not defile the temple. Don't use the body for sin. Submit our bodies holy and acceptable.
Let our bodies be instruments for God's glory.
It is no longer I but Christ.
If we love him let our bodies be instruments of His glory.
Today's culture teaches: that you should live by "your own truth" and be your own God. That whatever feels good, do it.
It teaches that there are no consequences to sin.
The Bible (the spirit of truth) teaches: "as it is appointed unto man once to die and after that the judgment. (Hebrews 9:27)
(John 16:13) “Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.”
Many will try to enter in but be turned away. They will say, we have prophesied and done many good works in your name, only to hear Him say Depart from me you worker of iniquity. I never knew you.
It is not by works of righteousness that we have done. Only according to his spirit the spirit of Truth.
God gets ALL the glory. All glory and all power are His.
John 16:14 stand established on the Rock!
The power of His indwelling Spirit give us peace.
He tells us when to move and when not to move.
The kingdom of God is not in meat and drink.
He gives us righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Ghost!
He helps us to understand and walk in the glory!
mothers, Unselfish servants
Mothers are expected to give of themselves without murmuring or complaining
they re expected to always be there
regardless of a child's actions, decisions, they are there to cry with them when others turn away.
There is a oneness because of the nine months of pregnancy that bonds the mother and child.
There is none closer than those connected to their moms. (a "spiritual" umbellical chord
A sacrificial, agape, unconditional not demanding love in return
Created by God with a special unique love, deeper than that of a father
Many mothers go unappreciated
Proverbs 31:10- Who can find a virtuous woman...
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.
Verse 6 focuses especially on her wisdom and kindness
She can't have a true love for the seed planted into them.
Real love comes from a relationship with God!
The latest arguments concern "Then does life begin. LIfe begins at conception.
Psalm 139 O lord, thou hast searched me, and known me. 2 Thou knowest my downsitting and mine uprising, thou understandest my thought afar off.
Jeremiah 1 before you were conceived I knew you
Recognize that we must train up a child in the way he should go.
There is a plan and a purpose for every child.
stewardship, grace and wisdom for godly mothers
great blessing of motherhood
unselfish servant' hearth to bring a new life into the world
Her physical appearance changes, where there is sacrificial, emotional
travail and pain of childbirth to bring a new life into the world.
He provides the closest bond after birth to nurture.
3 women who did not quit -
2 single moms - challenges with their children in crises
through death, divorce, widowhood
descriptions of great women by humanity
made by God
Debprah, Rahab, Ester, Ruth, Mary Magdalene, Mary he mother of Jesus
some not identified by name but by locality (where they were from)
Women not recognized by name but by their faith, their trust in God.
Recognize the fact that God knows you, he recognizes your faith.
God's word is not limited to power
Resist fear of God compassion on those in need
fruitful, nurturing to children
1Kings 17 he widow-woman
Ahab and Jezebel ruled over the kingdom
Prophets of Baal, works of darkness, false gods and Baal worship
Elijah asked, "How long will you halt between two opinions?....
1 Kings 18:21. “And Elijah came unto all the people, and said, How long halt ye between two opinions? if the LORD be God, follow him: but if Baal, then follow h
Three and a half years of famine were pronounced upon them because of their worship of false gods.
Verse 8 God commanded a widow woman to sustain the prophet
She was already talking to God.
God chose this widow of all widows!
He tested her to see whether she would obey
She had to take a step of faith.
She had to make sure her son was taken care of
Elijah assured her with what the Lord had said. "the cruse of oil shall not fail"...on1 Kings 17:14 For thus saith the LORD God of Israel, The barrel of meal shall not waste, neither shall the cruse of oil fail, until the day that the LORD sendeth rain upon the earth.
Our trust in God is paramount. He will take care of you!
She received blessing for her household and also received the same son raised from the dead later. God made sure that she had provision in the midst of famine.

Jesus Christ is our great high priest!.
It is important to understand who He is and what He has one for us in reference to being our high Priest.
John 20 after Jesus' resurrection, Mary Magdalene came to the tomb and had a special encounter, a lot of it not immediately apparent to the eye. The conversation with Mary about how he died on the cross as lamb of God came as the slain lamb of God to lay down his life as sacrifice. Before Jesus gave up the ghost, he said , "It is finished"
He was the final payment. The old ways for forgiveness of sins was completed and the veil of the temple had been rent from top to bottom. There was to be no more yearly entering in by the priests. The final sacrifice was accomplished!
Isaiah 56 with his stripes we are healed
2Corinthians 5:21 For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him. The lamb of God on the cross, rose as the great Lion.
10:13 RECORDING Mary did not recognize Jesus because his visage was marred more than any man. No man had ever been punished and marred to that extent.
She recognized his voice when he called her name. She went to touch him, but he told her that she could not touch him until later.
The earthly temple was set up in similar manner as the heavenly temple, the holy of holies and the mercy seat, etc.
God would accept blood sacrifices as a covering
sins of the people for the next year.
Now Jesus took his own blood and presented it to his Father.
"I must ascend to your father an my father.
Peace be unto you, as the father has sent me, so send I you.
He ascended 40 days later, after spending time with and teaching the disciples.
We are the body of Christ in the earth today.
We are priests that bridge the gap between God and man. He spoke to God on behalf of the people and to the people on behalf of God.
He is our bridge builder, our advocate, lawyer, intercessor.
Hebrews fulfillment of the law and the new covenant, He took on the seed of a woman.
He is holy, harmless, sinless with power over all that is in heaven and under the earth.
Hebrews 7 the priesthood of Jesus great high pries, intercessor.
The Devil makes accusations against us
Jesus is our advocate, declare what has already been performed
for the sinner and also for those who are saved.
*find recording here
I tell you these things that you sin not has power over death and continues to be the high priest forever. He is holy, undefiled, separate from sinners, higher than the heavens.
Phil. 2 He was made in the likeness of man and took uon him thd form of a servant. Because of his obedience, he was exalted and given a name above all names.
His name is above every name.
Ephesians 2 far above al principalities, not only in this world but that world to come
all principalities, all things to come
As High priest able to touch, deliver and set us free
Oversees the new covenant that he made with his own blood.
No covenant can be activated until the testator dies.
He died so the covenant in Him could be established,
He rose again to make sure that what he died for would be executed.
He was harmless, sinless and faithful.
Hebrews 2:14 Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil; 15 And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.
He took on the seed of Abraham, took on humanity and came to his own.
verse 17 it behooved him to be like his brethren, a merciful faithful high priest. able to succor them who are tempted.
He was tempted as we are, yet without sin.
He knows what it feels like to be rejected, in sorrow, in pain. He endured all that we endure, yet faithful.
He is author and finisher of our faith .Consider him who endured the cross, despising the shame. We are still alive, He showed by example that we can obey him.
He is merciful and faithful
God now speaks to us by His Son.
Hebrews 4 Let us therefore fear, lest, a promise being left us of entering into his rest, any of you should seem to come short of it. 2 For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it.
He is greater than Moses and the law. All plans and purposes are fulfilled in Him. He is the express image of God, the fulness of the Godhead bodily. Now we have the Spirit showing the glory of God.
Hebrews 4:14 “Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession.”
Come boldly to the throne of grace. We have an invitation to come but we must
first obtain mercy and then find grace to help
verse 16 There is protocol to entering into the throne of grace
mercy of God is withholding from us what we rightly deserve
confess and forsake our sins we shall have mercy
not by works of righteousness.. but according to his mercy he saved us.
Do not ask for justice, but mercy.
All have sinned and come short of the glory of God. He had to become sin for us.
Don't come to him assuming all is well. We must repent of sins of commission as well as sins of commission.
If we confess He will forgive and cleanse.
We deserve wrath and death but he has made payment for our sins
We start making our supplication once we know we have obtained mercy.
The righteous are as bold as a lion, We come in confidence knowing He will give grace.
His grace is sufficient. He meets all our needs. He will execute mercy before judgement!
He is a God of mercy but also a God of judgement.
Draw nigh to him with a sincere heart and after that the judgement.
Some think they will speak the word and declare the word without mercy first.
Declare that it is only because of his mercy that we even live to see tomorrow,
We can's guarantee through self-righteous arrogance and sustain life.
It is appointed unto man once to die. and after that the judgement.
Be clear where you stand with God.here
He grants mercy to restore the saints.
Live Holy that we may have true covenant with one another,
God prepared a great fish for him. "Is not this a brand plucked from the fire?"
Rev 12 devil cast out - accuser of the brethren
Jesus can set you free:
free from night dreams of accusation
there is therefore no condemnation
didn't do it right, didn't love
Zechariah 3 Joshua the high priest had fallen short of the calling of God
verse 3 take away the filthy garments give him a robe and a scepter
similar to the prodigal son
verse 5 change of raiment
God can restore your place of leadership,
the angel of the Lord commanded him afterward, "you must continue in the right way!
there is no license to cover and continue in sin
Go and sin no more
understand the love and mercy of God
He is able to minister to us in our time of need
Hebrews 10 hold fast our obedience
Be steadfast, unmovable
He is faithful to his promise
verse 24 let us exhort one another unto love and good works
The end of the age is on the way.
Heb 3:14 we are partakers of Christ if we hold the beginning of our confidence steadfast unto the end
don't get discouraged, don't get deceived

knowledge without understanding
Knowledge Without Understanding.
(Continue in my Word?)

Confidence in his faithful gives you peace with all you have to deal with in this life! God is faithful, He cannot lie, His word is true and cannot pass away. Receive the incorruptible seed of the word of God. we trust that your hearts are open and receptive to the word of God today.
message begins here:
spirit of the lord is putting strong emphases on the last days, especially this sign of the last time - the false christs, the false religions
The main last day sign of end time is the Spirit of Deception
1Timothy 1 false Christs, false gospel, another spirit, many spirits that are all inspired by the Anti-Christ spirit.He reminds us to be encouraged to stand for the truth, to contend for the faith.
Don’t let down your guard.
Don’t let the deceitfulness of sin and works of the enemy, wiles of the devil and deceptions to cause you to draw away from your steadfastness in Christ. We focus on that and continue in that vein/stream to get an understanding of what it really means to have a true revelation of Christ that brings a true relationship with Christ.
Satan is The prince of the power of the air
Influence through all type of medicines, ideas to destruction
The spirit of the Lord
If you continue in my word
John 8:31,32 Jesus said, “If you continue in my word. then are you my disciples indeed and the truth shall make you free.”
Hoy Spirit leads us into all truth.
Paul begins his letter to Timothy by really focusing on doctrine, the standards of
He Admonishes Timothy to contend for the faith and maintain the true doctrine of Christ. To realize that there are many who are trying to pervert the truth of god’s word.
He admonishes Timothy re: the calling on him maintain the true doctrine
Many who name the name and are involved in ministry, are yet lead astray.
All false doctrines, are from same source, infiltrating the body of Christ.
verse 5 info, not of the spirit will not bring change in a person’s heart and nature, character
1Tim 1:5 Now the end of the commandment is charity out of a pure heart, and of a good conscience, and of faith unfeigned:
info to the mind, soulish man hear yet to the heart
* the word is quick and powerful, piercing asunder
when mind to obey God and our motives are sincere, love is pure
if we have a selfish mindset, self-esteem, what we deserve, brings destruction
sincere for God and God alone
people gain knowledge without understanding
more satisfied with informed mind than a converted heart. t
The more you know the greater your sense of self-worth, but no change of heart. We are becoming more satisfies with knowledge
not information for the manifestation of God’s presence, nature
New Age religion focuses on self esteem.
Pledge allegiance to all sorts of things
the flag, representing allegiance to citizenship of America, the nation
move on America’s politics, constitution
There is compromise and lack of focus on God’s purpose.
Many even in the body of Christ are polluting God’s word. Lack of focus on God’s eternal purpose. More focus on the politics, whose going to get appointed,and patriotic commitment to the constitution than to God. Conservative or liberal, democrat or republican.
We bring greater even in the body of Christ.
Why are people under such pressure and pressuring others/
Corruption and darkness had ben prophecied where trhere is more division where loyalty is based on our cuture, bloodline than the blood of christ.
John 18:36: Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews
The falling away and darkness had been prophesied but God is always faithful to his people
more division among those who name the name of Christ
more cultural, bloodlines in the natural
we are a chosen generation, delivered
one in Christ, common destination,
common destiny, not temporary, legacy of a nation.
This world is not our home, this is not the end.
we have a glorious future, a home in heaven not built by man’s hands, eternal in the heavens, we shall forever be with the Lord.
Thank God for rights and privileges for laws and peace but our focus must be on salvation of souls. ….
God’s desire is that all be saved. There is an eternal plan an eternal destination that if we don’t accept Christ as savior the alternative is to be lead into eternal damnation and separation from God.
It's all about the heart, about the souls,
The souls of man and our responsibility as representatives, We represent the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords and will soon will be brought back home.
world’s way – the cares of this life, deceitfulness of riches choke out the word
many depart from the faith, giving heed to
love your neighbor as yourself
focus on everybody expressing themselves
to speak and be seen
New Age – “I Am worthy therefore I determine what is valuable to me”
Vain gangling: lot of words with no eternal value
The enemy has a lie for everything that is true
*God has not given us the spirit of fear
Paul taught many will want to be teachers
Take heed to what you hear
Guard your heart with all diligence
Be mindful of what you allow your ears to hear and your eyes to see
Make a covenant with your eyes that you will not look at what will lead your away from Christ.
We must contend for the faith and be on guard.
God has a plan.
The devil has a plan, too. turmoil, but God has not given us the spirit of fear,
take heed to what you hear. Guard your heart with all diligence, be mindful of what you allow your ears to hear, your eyes to see. They bring information into your spirit make a covenant with your eyes not to
Wherever God has a vision the devil ha a plot. God already told them what his plan was, the devil came with the lie. The very heart of the soul of man before the fall of man. Dis
Satan’s deception: You will not surely die.
Age/ Dispensation of innocence followed by the Age of Conscience. Covered in the shekinah glory of God after the fall they were under the dispensation of conscience
Now whatever gives me sense of value. Whatever my conscience deems right.
new age teaches that there is no judgment. even in the church, no teaching about hell and eternal damnation. Only about how you are deserving, entitled to receive joy and blessings. Only because of His mercy and his grace, nothing to boast in of ourselves. born in sin, shapen in iniquity. No right to demand anything from God. Cannot earn the blessing of the lord the love of God keeps us and helps us maintain a life in this natural world.
there is a great compromise that is happening. People don’t want to think that they are accountable. There are consequences to our actions.
Judge of the quick and the dead. He is the judge. We believers will stand before him at the judgement seat o Christ. Unbelievers stand at the great white throne judgement.
those whose names are not written in the lamb’s book of life will be throne into hell.
every knee shall bow and every tongue confess. That Jesus Christ is Lord.
We shall give an account of ourselves
no other name, no other mediator but the man Christ Jesus.
“I AM THE WAY, THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE” No man can come o the father but by me.
Paul told Timthy, “preach the word…the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine…”
*I Tim 4:2 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;
2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;
The first things and last things Paul said to Timothy.
“Watch in all things, do the work of an evangelist.”
Information is on the increase
People are gaining knowledge but lacking understanding.
Knowledge puffs up, gives a sense of pride.
Knowing who I am, how much I’ve proven myself.
People are searching.
The sacrifice of the flesh to earn and be pleasing to God.
Information is head knowledge while Revelation is heart Rhema Word, revealed word.
Natural man receives not the things of God.
Revelation by the spirit of God
Men of God spoken will bring forth fruit by the Holy spirit.
There will be a performance of what was promised
brings forth a reality
Peter a man – saw Jesus in the flesh, walked with him.
Matt 16 Jesus asked his disciples, who do men say I am.
Today they say you are good leader, prophet, one of many messiahs
Peter said they say you are Elijah, a great prophet, etc.
like John the Baptist, exposing sin
renegade, non-conformist, isolate from the world
like Elijah, raising the widow’s son
a miracle worker of signs and wonders
like Jeremiah, weak, meek, and lowly, always weeping
Jesus did weep over Israel, did work miracles, etc.
Jesus asked, “Who do You say that I am?”
Peter answered, “You are the Christ, the Son of God.”
He had revelation, heart knowledge.
Not just based on testimony of others, but on his own experience Walking with Jesus.
Peter had a desire to know Him. Get into the word yourself, read about Him in Matthew, Mark Luke, and John epistles.
Peter had Seen Jesus feed the multitudes.
Experienced it himself, “If you bid me come.”
read for yourself what Jesus did and said.
fed the multitudes
1 Corinthians 2:4-6
4 And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man's wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power:
5 That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.
6 Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to naught:
Paul says to us, “My preaching was not with enticing words of man’s wisdom, but with power and authority.”
Live the word, testify,.
know him as a healer: Say, “By the stripes of Jesus I was healed”.
as a deliverer: was bound by drugs, he is a provider, when there didn’t seem to be a way, God is a faithful. a counselor. When I didn’t know the way, He showed me the way out
Cause others’ faith not to rest in man’s wisdom.
We are raising up a people with true manifestation of His love and His power.
Matt. 16:18 And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.
(*Upon this rock I will build my church

Hebrews 10:23-25 23 Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;)
24 And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works:
25 Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.
*…..more as the day approaches
He is coming soon!
Rev, 22:12 Behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to render to each man according as his work is.

Satan's Master Plan
Satan’s Master Plan 3/22/22
Jude tells us to “contend for the faith first delivered
We are not to be ignorant concerning Satan’s devices.
deceitful workers, false teachings, false Christs in the last days
Learn how we are to stand in these last days.
Lay a foundation – the new age world religion
exposing plots, deceptions
subtle but profound in the working
It is the spirit of the anti christ
I John 2:18 it is the last time the man of sin will be revealed, spirit of AntiChrist doctrines
seeks to remove Christ and substitute another gospel!
1John 4:1 beloved. believe not every spirit
the spirit of the Lord lets us know how we are to stand
Galatians – departing, substituting
begun in simplicity of salvation but drawn to another gospel!
intellect, scientific things of the world
the challenge to the saints to hold fast to the standard of the truth
Galatians 1:6 I marvel at this, being deceived another gospel
there are many new translations of the Bible now
2Timothy preach the word…be instant in season and out of season…they will not endure sound doctrine
people are fulfilling fleshly desires
*Galatians 1:7 not another, some will if any man pfreach any other gospel, let him be accursed
have understanding by the Holy Spirit and the written word
*matt 16 who do men say that I the son of man am?
flesh and blood did not reveal this to you
Many depend on man’s wisdom to give understanding of who Jesus is!
but if any man have not the spirit of God
and natural man receives not…except a man be born again he cannot see the kingdom of God…
eye hath not seen, ear hat not heard
The way of the Lord is simple.
“Learn of me.” Knowledge of God is not complicated if you have a hunger for the right things.
If we receive another spirit, another Jesus, another gospel
false apostles, no marvel
an angel of light, posing as a minister of righteousness;
the devil deceived Eve with a lie – you shall be your own God
but you decide. focus on yourself
you are God’s creation, power against wonders later
than relationship with the Lord
Paul identified false apostles, etc.
no relationship, foundation of the doctrines of Christ
Deception in this last day
love of many waxes cold
A survival mindset
wars and rumors of wars, pandemics, sickness and disease
Global, not nationwide. Affecting all nations
Culture and social status is meaningless
Men are looking for a global solution
They are getting ready for the God of this world
facilitating a global religion, economic system
Master plan of the enemy in order of process a long time.
Increase of knowledge:
no limit to information
computers in our pockets
We have access to information - artificial intelligence, technological advances
The number of man:
The belief that man is the answer eliminates focus
Men can solve this problem without God,
The bible is not legitimate
drawn to other sources
But the Bible is God-breathed
There is a famine for the Word
filled with ungodly ways outside of the truth
We have been in the last days for the least 2,000 years
The signs are coming to fruition now.
The New Age Movement teaches that there are many paths to God
They teach a universal open-armed religion
in which only those who believe in a personal god are excluded
Jesus said, I am the way
There is no other name under heaven by which “man must be saved
most doctrine is dogmatic
glorification of man, teaching that man is supreme and that man can evolve into godship
holding to Satan’s promise, “you shall be as a God”
Mormonism, secular humanistic teachings, professionals – a high religion more attuned to people of intellect
man is an evolving God and the greatest love of all is “self-love”
Nothing New under the sun – the same spirit of lust, lasciviousness’, pleasing self
Jesus’ sacrifice is meaningless
like in the 1960s and 70’s peace and love is the mantra
Escape from authority and standards
No sin and evil, no judgement
A false premise
New Age teaches that man is inherently good.
Galatians says it is another Christ, a misrepresentation of who God is.
It teaches that God is an essence, an energy force and that there is no way to have a personal relationship with Him
They teach that we are all God and He is an energy
But we know that God is not part of His creation! He will burn it up in the end.
A new heaven and a new earth. (Rev, 21)
mother Earth, worshipping stars, spiritism, zodiac, horoscopes, etc.
Astrology the interpretation of assigned influence the stars have on human character
guided by stars, planetary movements, etc.
Babylonians sought wisdom through these practices
Beware of these mindsets, drawing our young people these are prevalent and are on the increase, keeping them away from the truth
New Age Re: Christ:
Buddha, etc. are Christ.
Messengers are sent to help us develop into Christ -likeness
New Agers believe there is one to come that will usher in the New Age.
Angels are called spirit guides, but they are demons except a man repent, confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus
New Agers believe “born again” means to let go and allow your “inner guide/inner self” to lead you.
But God hates pride because he says “humble yourself under the hand of God
Hinduism – Khundalini – even in the charismatic church
serpent power – they believe this gives instant rebirth by a flash of light
rebirth conveys Christ consciousness’
They believe the second coming when new age believers receive Christ consciousness and that their messiah come and rule in the earth.
Hell and Judgement:
“How can he send his children to hell?”
God does not send people to hell, he gives them a choice.
The Agenda has been publicly written
Harlot Babylon in Revelation 17
contend for the faith
There will be a great falling away before the revealing of the anti christ.
It is a subtle agenda
The Plan – 13 points in the New Age Mission statement. (from Secrets of the New Age , Texe Marrs 1987 )
1) establish one religion for population control, et. one world social order
2) revival of idolatrous ancient Babylon
same sex marriage, cultism, psychics will be the norm, necromancy, etc.
*God left strong warning in Deuteronomy 18 as the Hebrews were coming out of Egypt. They were not to involve themselves in these activities. (normalization of these cult practices)
3) Anti-Christ come in the flesh to lead the new world order
4) Spiritism – ie:avatars - they believe they help man inaugurate new age and pave the way for new age man-God to unite man as The Great World Teacher
5) world peace, love and unity are rallying cries – another popular them, the greatest love is to love yourself
6) taught in every sphere of society around the globe. education, government, etc.
7) spread the apostacy that Jesus is not God or Christ
8) all are to become parts of the new Age Religion - ecumenical movement – co-exist as equal
9) Christian principles to be discredited
10) children spiritually seduced for the New Age dogma. The evolution theory equal or above the truth of God’s word, gender issues part of the equation
11) flattery to entice the worldaccomplishments of man exalted – man has the answers to problems
12) science and religion become one, man’s accomplishments, glorifies man as God– heroes, superheroes! superhuman abilities
They see man as divine God (but God says He should get all the glory)
13) Christians who resist the plan should be dealt with, maybe exterminated and the world purified
Persecution is coming! let not your heart be troubled. While we are here, stand! Martyrdom: many are willingly laying down their lives now! Paul said he fought a good fight and kept the faith.
2 Timothy 4:7-8 7 I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: 8 Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.
Be encouraged, aware of subtle, enticing practices that draw men away and dishonor God.
Deception is strong bait disguised as truth.
Continue in the faith.
Jesus has thoughts of peace.
Our hope is built on nothing less than Jesus’ blood and righteousness.
Be steadfast, unmovable, always abounding in the work of God.
We are privileged/commanded to go into all the world with the gospel.
The message for the world: Salvation is found in none other than Jesus Christ.
Bow to Jesus now while you have a choice.
Every knee will bow and every tongue confess that Jesus is Lord.
Hold fast, study to show yourself approved unto God!
