What’s Behind the False Sexual Identity


 

 

 “The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers so that they cannot see the light of the gospel that displays the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.”
2 Corinthians 4:

This Bill passed the House and going to the Senate: 2/2021 – The Equality Act –  Discrimination against the family, women, children  and Christians in giving transgenders ability to compete in sports according to their identity gender,  rather than biological and force employers to hire them or prohibit dismissing them even if they do not approve of their immoral appearance and habits. Discrimination against Christian expression and beliefs afforded to us by the 1st Amendment Bill of Rights.  Children will be manipulated through education to accept sexual perversion and discriminated against for non-acceptance. Normalizing transgenderization as treatment for gender dysphoria is a threat to our children who will be manipulated to take harmful sex hormones and later sex altering surgery. Parochial  schools will be forced to accept the false ideology under non-discrimination laws, and children will lose all privacy concerning separation of restrooms for girls and boys. Schools and businesses would be forced to hire transgenders and be prohibited from firing them. All of the above is already occurring throughout the United States.  If you doubt it, read the following report. DF

“Don’t you know that those doing such things have no share in the Kingdom of God? Don’t fool yourselves. Those who live immoral lives, who are idol worshipers, adulterers or homosexuals—will have no share in his Kingdom. Neither will thieves or greedy people, drunkards, slanderers, or robbers.” 1 Corinthians 6: 9-20

The Cancel God Culture

The Symptoms today of a discontented generation in not knowing who they are is the result of a great deception. I believe, manifested in the permanent tattooing, homosexuality, transgenderization, gender identities, and the unnatural affection towards animals. These are symptoms of people earnestly crying out for affirmation, which invites immediate attention while using extreme methods to disavow the standard for mankind’s authenticity with human nature and sexuality. This is nothing less than Satan’s attempt to destroy the image of God.

Do You Know Who You Are Created to Be?
Genesis 1:27

“So God created mankind in his own image,

in the image of God he created them;

male and female he created them.  Genesis 1:27

DNA

 When God created mankind, He created us male and female. The characteristics of mankind (male and female) together make-up God’s image. He ordained mankind as overseer of all the creatures and the earth:


“What is mankind that you are mindful of them, human beings that you care for them? 
You have made them a little lower than the angels and crowned them with glory and honor. You made them rulers over the works of your hands; you put everything under their feet: all flocks and herds, and the animals of the wild, the birds in the sky, and the fish in the sea, all that swim the paths of the seas. Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!” Psalm 8: 1-9

Procreation
(Genesis 2: 23-24, Matthew 9:4-5)

“God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground.” Genesis 1:28

It is God’s supreme nature to continue life through procreation and the sowing of seed, thus, He commanded mankind (male and female ) to be fruitful and multiply. He has made this command known throughout creation and spoken it through His Word:

For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities–his eternal power and divine nature–have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.” Romans 1:20phototake_photo_of_12_week_fetus

Therefore, what is at stake, is the knowledge of the truth concerning our Identity as defined by our creator, as distinctively biologically male and female. (Genesis 1:27). What is eroding this truth is the theory of evolution and humanism, making void of God while placing mankind on the same level as animals. These theories undermine God’s purpose for creating man in His image. Therefore, if one is to believe in the humanistic theory, then he/she also believes he/she has no divine purpose and is accountable to only oneself. The sense of right and wrong is, therefore, relative and there are no absolutes.  (Psalm 14:1-4)

False Perceptions and Illusions

How sad, some, either do not accept, or know who they are, and try to identify with a false deceiving impression.  For if we don’t know who we are, then there is the temptation to become whatever we perceive ourselves to be. The end result can be disillusionment, disappointment, hopelessness, and many times physical and spiritual death. Our children have been robbed of understanding their identity through the indoctrination in education. Not only is the Word of God in our public schools hidden from them, but also the history of our nation, rooted in the Judeo-Christian belief. It has been said, “if you don’t know where you have come from, neither will you know where you are going.” I would like to add, also, neither do you know who you were destined to be. Therefore, the secular humanists are in position, filling the void and the minds of our children with their destructive beliefs (ideology).

Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.  Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like someone who looks at his face in a mirror and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like.  But whoever looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues in it-not forgetting what they have heard, but doing it—they will be blessed in what they do.” James 1: 22-25

Psychological/Spiritual Disorders

An example of a false perception is found in the psychological disorder – “Anorexia Nervosa”, – whereby, a person perceives themselves in the image of being perpetually overweight. This perception comes as a result of obsessing over one’s physical image. The delusion drives them to recreate an acceptable image of themselves through starvation. The consequence is, many times, irrevocable health problems, and for some, even death, as they find no escape. This delusion is an evil spiritual deception, a stronghold that can be demolished through prayer and focusing off the obsession, by accepting the pure gospel of Jesus Christ, His unconditional love, while meditating on the Truth of God’s Word.

Just as someone suffering from this disorder equates thinness with self-worth, the one suffering from gender dysphoria equates self-worth by becoming the opposite sex. Unfortunately, many psychologists are normalizing and affirming the disorder. They attribute the patient’s emotional distress from feeling rejection, disrespected and misunderstood. Psychologists many times blame others who reject the transgender for their emotional distress, instead of the disorder causing the depression. As a comparison, would it be expected to affirm someone’s belief they are overweight when obviously, they are physically wasting away from (Anorexia Nervosa)? Would you actually refrain from helping them overcome their false perception if it could prevent their death? “According to The National Association of Anorexia Nervosa and Associated Disorders, someone dies as the direct result of an eating disorder every 62 minutes.”anorexic

Transgenders are experiencing life-threatening physical and psychological complications from the medical and psychological treatments affirming their dysphoria.  Based on an original Dutch study, the following complications can occur:

“Dangerous health implications have been uncovered”:

How Normalizing Homosexuality led to Transgenderization
(Romans 1: 24-28)

I can specifically recall how my granddaughter spoke of how students in her school were embracing the normalization of homosexuality. It was even becoming popular to affirm oneself as gay or lesbian or bisexual.  Students received affirmation from other students to accept homosexuality and bisexual attractions. If a young male expressed female characteristics in gestures and preferences, they were labeled as such. The same is true of a young female who expressed male characteristics. The problem with this is culture many times determines gender characteristics, rather than sexual. As a child, I can remember a female friend who preferred to associate with the boys and to participate in their sports. She would dress masculine and wear her hair very short and slicked back. It came to my attention she was trying to please her father, a professional baseball player, who made it obvious, he really wanted a boy, after having two daughters. She really looked up to her father and I believe she was trying to conform to this masculine image he desired.  However, years later, I ran into her in a department store dressed very feminine selling cosmetics. I hardly recognized her and was happy to see she made it through her gender crisis. According to most studies, the majority of pre-pubic youth experiencing gender dysphoria will outgrow the dysphoria when becoming adults.

 

Transformed by Love
(2 Corinthians 5:17)

 “Do you not know that wrongdoers will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor men who have sex with men nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.  And that is what some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.” 1 Corinthians 6:9-11.

Becket Cook, a former homosexual identifies this sexual deviancy as sin. He was attracted to the same sex and had sexual relationships with men until God transformed him, and he became a “born again” (John 3) believer in Jesus Christ. His sexual attraction to the same sex, occurred after he was sexually molested as a child by a friend’s father. In many reported cases,  the sexual perversion can occur after sexual molestation, I believe, because of the evil influence this abuse causes, through temptations. He was delivered by hearing the gospel message, then repenting, and experiencing God’s unconditional love and forgiveness. He confesses he at times is tempted to go back into a homosexual relationship but has determined his affection to be for Christ, alone. He publicly shares his testimony and has written a book, titled, “A Change of Affection”.Becket

Scriptures Relating to Homosexuality and Transgenderization:
Romans 1:26-28, 1John 1:9, 1 Timothy 1:8-11, 1 Corinthians 6: 9-11, Mark 10:6-9, Deuteronomy 22:5

Transgenderization

Today, there is a present illusion of false gender identity resulting from gender dysphoria: People believing they are the opposite gender from their biological sex. Those under this deceitful influence, are attempting to recreate the desired image other than their sexual biological nature.

The result is, some parental, psychological, medical, political, and educational professionals are profiting from affirming these mirages instead of giving people the spiritual counseling and help, they so desperately need. They do not need false affirmation but rather, spiritual and biblical guidance through the direction of God’s Holy Spirit to discover their created identity.
“The gospel message of Jesus Christ, when believed and received has the power to transform our fallen nature into God’s divine nature through the sanctification of God’s Holy Spirit.”transgender two

As I have pointed out in my blog; What’s behind those Signs and Numbers Today, Satan’s method is creating a delusion to replicate God’s actions (ex. Exodus 7: 8-13). Gender dysphoria is the god of this world’s attempt to counterfeit God’s power of transformation. This occurs when someone is ignorant or has rejected God as our Creator and is discontent with their human nature. Satan lies to transform a person from what God has created and purposed. The same is true, how Satan planted the deceptive idea in Eve’s heart to reject God’s Word of warning, appealing to her flesh, with the lie, she could somehow be like God by rejecting His Truth. (Genesis 3:1-5)

“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 6:12

God transforms a person who looks to Him in repentance, and to His salvation which is through faith in His Son, Jesus Christ. When the repentant believer accepts Christ’s sacrifice for their sins on the cross and believes in His resurrection from the dead, that person’s spiritual eyes are opened to the truth and that person is saved by confessing the Truth. gospel

“But what does it say? “The word is near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart,”  that is, the message concerning faith that we proclaim:  If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.  For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.  As Scripture says, “Anyone who believes in him will never be put to shame.”  For there is no difference between Jew and Gentile—the same Lord is Lord of all and richly blesses all who call on him, for, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”   Romans 10: 8-13

 

“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.” 2 Corinthians 5:17

A Foul Spirit

“A woman must not wear men’s clothing, nor a man wear women’s clothing, for the Lord your God detests anyone who does this. Deuteronomy 22:5 

This delusion comes from a deceitful foul spirit, manifested, whenever a person accepts the false gender identity, and affirmations, confessing it as truth. Walt Heyer, a former transgender, testifies there were affirmations by his grandmother, who would dress him up as a girl and affirm how “wonderful and cute he looked”. With this assertion, he received a lot of attention from her, and became anxious and depressed, believing there was something wrong with him. The delusion was also reinforced by the reluctance of others to dispute the false identity of him being a girl. The affirmation gained reinforcement when he was sexually abused by a male family member.homosexual

Walt is now giving testimony of how someone who is experiencing gender dysphoria needs counseling, and how transgender affirmation through hormone treatments and surgery is destroying lives. He has created a web site to reach out to those who want help with this problem and also for those who want to retransition to their biological sex. However, there is an attempt to prevent spiritual counseling and psychological therapy for those seeking help. There is a bill- HB 3872 in Oklahoma waiting to be passed,  which “bans” what LGBTQ activists call “conversion therapy” –  making it illegal for a parent, pastor, doctor, counselor, etc. to speak to or help a child/teen under 18 escape the LGBTQ lifestyle and or gender dysphoria. Similar bills are being passed in other states such as Washington, Oregon, Illinois, Vermont, New Mexico, Nevada, Rhode Island, and Connecticut, making it illegal to help those wanting to transition back to their created identity and biological sex.

LGBTQ Indoctrination

What is extremely, disconcerting, is that our children are presently being influenced by this perverse behavior. This indoctrination uses powerful tools of persuasion, coercion and strategic propaganda, marketing through advertisements,  the internet, social media, education, television, books, toys, lobbyists, legislation,  and unethical referrals from medical professionals, who embrace the LGBTQ agenda.

How Far Can Self-Identities Go?

If this identity crisis is allowed to continue, and be protected, how far can it go?  Anyone then will have the legal right to identify themselves in any way they choose. Right now, there is an increasing number of people who tattoo their entire bodies to identify with what they perceive themselves to be. Their bodies, once created by God and beautiful, are now covered with ugly ink.animal tattoo

Another phenomenon that is occurring is the desire to become a favorite animal or fantasy. In my blog- An Unnatural Affection, we see the demonstration of an affection towards animals which goes beyond what it should be. Dogs especially receive a lot of attention when they are seen. The owner can receive the same attention, especially if they say their dog is a “rescue”.  I believe we live in a society where many people crave attention and recognition that was lacking perhaps in childhood, and in family and human relationships, and will demand it in any way they can achieve.

In my research, I discovered some transgenders who were not satisfied to get their attention by changing their gender but decided to transform into the animal or creature they wanted to be.

I also found some people whose desire is to transform into Disney cartoon characters, dragons, and other animations.  Their fantasy was made possible because their fantasy was affirmed by tattoo artists and plastic surgeons; making a wealth of money by obliging their delusions.

If transgenderization is normalized and protected by law, how will it be possible to discriminate in employment or in schools a person who identifies as a non-human being.

Just recently, a case was won which makes it illegal to fire someone from a job who transgenders- by interpreting “sexual discrimination” as non-biological as well as biologically as well. This refers to the 1963 Civil Rights Act. (See government link)

Please view the examples of this taking place as we speak. In one case, a male transgenders to become a female then transforms into a hideous dragon. Notice in this first video that in the end, children are encouraged to accept his delusion, much like how children are forced to accept the dragon queens who come to read to them in “welcoming schools”.  The other video shows how a man also transgenders to become a female, then a tiger. Later in the video, watch how nervous a businessman becomes when he is asked if he could hire this tiger- wannabe. Could it be they are choosing to become animals because animals receive so much media and attention? These are two sad, pathetic examples of how through” welcoming” surgeons, tattoo artists and our present culture they were affirmed and led to believe they can be whoever they want to be.

Warning: You may find this shocking and very disturbing, but in case you think it could not get any worse, or even an impossibility, the following videos are proof.
Please do not view this with children.

Education and Indoctrination

The Following are methods enforcing the LGBTQ agenda, targeting, specifically, our children:

  • The National Library Association is promoting homosexuality and transgender identity; promoting it as “inclusiveness and “diversity”, to include homosexuality and transgenderization as a civil right needing protection. Some libraries celebrate “Diversity Month” by displaying books specifically, targeted for children normalizing homosexuality and transgenderization.

LINKS:

American Library Association: Diversity and Embracing the LGBTQ agenda
A Toolkit from the American Library Association Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender Round Table

  • The National Education Association is pushing indoctrination of the LGBTQ agenda throughout the curriculum and encouraging the creation of lesson plans based on the transgender children’s book, titled, I am Jazz, ( Jazz Jennings). Jazz Jennings, born as a male, pursued transforming into the opposite sex, and presently is exploited to normalize transgendering into a girl and now a woman starring in the reality, TV show, I am Jazz.

Wiki Report on Jazz Jennings

  • Schools that embrace the LGBTQ agenda, are called “Welcoming Schools”, whereby, they allow students to use the restroom of their choice, based on their gender identity and invite transgenders to come read to young children explaining how their lifestyle is normal and acceptable. They teach and promote this curriculum without parental permission, and in some cases, parents are not given the opportunity to opt-out. In schools where transgender teachers are welcomed, students are forced to accept the transgenderization of their teachers and if there is any objection they are treated as bullies and called transphobic. Many children are having to deal with the perversion and be quiet how they feel.

Medical and Psychological Treatments

  • Children diagnosed with gender dysphoria are receiving referrals from
    “welcoming” pediatricians and psychologists to start hormonal treatments in an attempt to prevent normal biological puberty from occurring. There are now at least 50 transgender clinics in the United States where children and adults are referred. These clinics profit from unethical endocrinologists, prescribing hormones and referrals for transgender surgery to remove or alter their genitalia. Children are not sophisticated to make these life-altering changes, and as a result, are being exploited and ill-treated.

 Government Legislation and Appointments

  • Presently, there is legislation constructed to force acceptance and affirmation for all forms of gender identity ( lesbian, gay, transgender, bisexual, etc., ). This legislation attempts to coincide gender identity discrimination with the Civil Rights Act of 1963 which protects against race and sex discrimination. This legislation has passed the house with only one republican co-sponsoring the bill (Susan Conners). The Equality Act and the Equal Rights Amendment will make it criminal and discriminatory to reject homosexuality and transgenderization in business, schools, state and federal institutions, and even churches. On Good Friday of this year, April 10th, the Governor Northam of Virginia signed a comprehensive protection bill for the LGBTQ community.  The 2021 Joe Biden Nominee for Assistant Secretary for Health at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services is Pennsylvania Health Secretary Rachel Levine; a transgender woman who specialized in pediatrics and adolescent medicine –  See link:

Our Identity in Christ Jesus
Our Identity in Christ Bible Verses

Made in the image of our creator and God, (Genesis 1:27), and then redeemed by His Son
(John 3), we can become a “new creation”( 2 Corinthians 5:17), and our identity is no longer in mankind but in our Savior. Our completeness and fulfillment are not found in any gender or race, or any gender or self-identity, but rather in oneness with the Father and His Son, Jesus Christ.

“There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.” Galatians 3:28

How Can This Happen?

The gospel seed of salvation coupled with faith results in regeneration, by the believer, who becomes “born again” into the Kingdom of God, where Christ reigns. The answer to how do we help those who are confused about their identity is found in the gospel message of Jesus Christ.

“For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard.” Romans 3:23

Sin blinds us to our true identity as God’s creation. God promised a savior who would open the eyes of the blind and deliver from the bondage of sin. (Isaiah 42: 6,7, Matthew 11:4-5). Since God is Holy, and without sin, He must remove our sins for us to have an eternal relationship with Him. Jesus Christ, who was God in the flesh, has made the sacrifice for our sins, taking on the punishment and judgment we deserve. This gift of salvation is free to all who come to repentance and acknowledge Jesus Christ as the one who was crucified for the forgiveness of their sin and then resurrected for the assurance of eternal life. All sin is forgiven by the shedding of the blood of Jesus Christ (Hebrews 9:22).

There is no other way to be healed or saved. Jesus is the only way (John 14:6,). All other ways lead to judgment, eternal darkness, everlasting punishment, and destruction (Proverbs 14:12). Christ has made the way for all to come to the knowledge of Truth concerning Himself, and be saved.

Will you make Him your Savior and Lord, today? If you choose Him, you will become a “new creature” in Christ Jesus and will have eternal life.
(Romans 10: 8-13, Ephesians 2:8-10, Ephesians 1: 13-14)

Only God Can Change Us

“So all of us who have had that veil removed can see and reflect the glory of the Lord. And the Lord—who is the Spirit—makes us more and more like him as we are changed into his glorious image.” 2 Corinthians 3:18 NLT

 Becoming a New Creature in Christ Jesus

If you do not know who you were created to be you can know right away. If you receive Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, you will become a new creature, all old things will pass away and all things will become new. Through faith in Jesus Christ and His salvation, God sends His Holy Spirit into your heart and seals you for salvation. And when you believe, you will be set free from the bondage of sin.

“For in Christ Jesus, the law of the Spirit of life has set you free from the law of sin and death.” Romans 8:2
“So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.” Romans 8:36

Jesus Prayed for All of Us
(Luke 23:34)

When Jesus Christ was crucified, He prayed for us by asking God, the Father, to forgive us. The gospel message opens our eyes to the Truth and when we accept it, we see Jesus, and our identity in Him is forever sealed. In that hour, you will know of His unconditional love.

A Call to Prayer
(2 Chronicles 7:14)spiritual warfare

If you know who you are please pray for the deliverance of those who don’t and for our children’s protection; against the evil indoctrination through all forms of media, our government and our schools.
Please pray for our legislators to come to the knowledge of the Truth and legislate freedom, not bondage. Please let your voice be heard to speak for those who cannot speak for themselves, contact your representative about laws which discriminate against sexual morality.
Please pray for our President to have discernment. Please pray for our Supreme Court Justices to rightly interpret the constitution rather than legislate their ideology.

May God give us the courage to speak up, but most importantly, the fortitude to be persistent in prayer, so in time, the Truth will be known to each individual and this stronghold demolished through the power of God’s love.

PRAYER: Dear Lord, please send the truth through your Holy Spirit to expose the enemy’s agenda against our families, you and our children. Give us your boldness today, to stand – up to this prevailing evil threatening the very existence of ourselves and our influence on other nations.  Please fogive us for our sins, and may we come to the knowledge of the Truth found in the gospel message of Jesus Christ. Bring revival, Lord, and let it begin with us, those who are called by your name.
In Jesus Name,
Amen

Knowing Jesus Christ


Knowing Jesus Christ
Matthew 7: 21-23, Matthew 25: 11-12

Do you know Him, and does He know you?

 

Probably one of the most alarming things that Jesus pointed out during His visitation was this warning statement concerning “knowing him”.  He wanted to make it perfectly clear that there was to be a “relationship” between the believer and Himself.  So, how do we get to know Jesus, and how does He recognize us as His own?  I believe there is a distinction between “knowing him” and “knowing of him”, and we need to “know” the difference.

 

As soon as I started reflecting on the word “know”, two songs came to memory:  Getting to Know You  by Hammerstein  and  To Know Him is to Love Him  by Phil Spector.  These two songs were popular during the 50’s.  They both speak of an intimate relationship with someone else.

 

In the parable of the ten virgins in Matthew 25, only half of them were able to meet the Groom, when He arrived.  The other five did not have enough oil to continue their journey and had to go and buy more.  When they returned to where the wedding was taking place, they were not allowed in because the bridegroom did not recognize them as belonging to Himself: They said, “Lord, Lord, ‘open the door for us!’  “But he replied, ‘Truly I tell you, I don’t know you.”

 

When Jesus spoke to Nicodemus in John 3 He went right to the point.  He told Nicodemus that He would have to be “born again” in order to enter into the Kingdom of God.  He then proceeded to tell Him how that is possible.  When we think of being born we have a whole different visualization because of our technology.  We actually have a window on the womb and understand the whole process.  Nicodemus was not privy to that information and so Jesus used an example he could understand.  One thing scientists have discovered and that is that as soon as the male sperm penetrates the female egg there’s an explosion of continuous development and with it the DNA is present that identifies the physical characterization of the developing child. And so it is spiritually, that as soon as we believe In God’s Salvation – Jesus Christ, we begin a brand new life in Christ; sealed by the Holy Spirit; we are identified with Him,  and He knows us as His own. (2 Corinthians 5:17)

 In the “born again” relationship we know Christ by abiding in His Word and by yielding to His Holy Spirit. As we apply the Word to our lives, we take on the characterization of His divine nature (DNA) and become Christ-like. Then, when He comes to take us Home the relationship is complete and we know Him as we are known.

 

“Now we see but a dim reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully even as I am fully known.”  1 Corinthians 13:12

The Birth Pangs of Faith


 

“Shall I bring to the point of birth and not give delivery?” says the LORD. Or shall I who gives delivery shut the womb?” says your God.
Isaiah 66:9

The Bible uses the process of childbirth as a metaphor of a trial, whereby, He is the One who delivers.

 “Adam lay with his wife Eve, and she became pregnant and gave birth to Cain. She said,
“With the help of the LORD I have brought forth a man.” Genesis 4:1

Notice in the above verse Eve explains how the Lord helped her through the process of giving birth. Even though God made childbirth more difficult for Eve, He did not abandon her but was right there to help deliver her child.  

The trials in a believer’s life or initiated or allowed by God for a specific reason and purpose- to bring forth good fruit or a good result. Sometimes it is even a result of an answer to our prayer.  Since he created the process, he has purposed it and that purpose sometimes test our faith. Do we believe if He is the one who has allowed or initiated the pain in our trial, He is also faithful to deliver?  The wonderful thing about any pain we experience in Christ,  it is accompanied with His Grace. And when we don’t look for ways to escape it, but focus on Him, we enter His rest, by letting go, allowing God to do the rest.
(Psalm 34:4)

And what a blessing it is to have God’s blessing placed directly in our arms gazing back at us, face to face, touching His faithfulness. 

See: Waiting on God’s Intervention

When a woman is expecting she also knows at the end of her pregnancy there will be the time when birth will require suffering. But she has joy because her child will be born, and this momentary suffering will produce the love of her life. But if she tries to escape it, she only postpones it and there is a suffering that will not strengthen but weaken her maternal faith.
(James 1:1-2)

Jesus knew that His sacrifice would require tremendous suffering and He would even be alone, as everyone deserted Him. But there was no greater anguish then when He mourned the separation from God. He, alone, took upon Himself the sins of the world, making it possible for everyone who believes, to be born, again.
(Matthew 27:46, John 3:3)

 “…………….For the joy set before Him He endured the cross, scorning the shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.” Hebrews 12:2

When Eve gave birth to Cain, her first child, she did not suffer alone. She testified that “with the help of the Lord she brought forth her child.” Neither in childbirth nor our trials are we ever alone. All we have to do is call on our Savior Who is faithful to deliver, at the right time and way when in faith we let fear go.

The Kingdom of God


 


“But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” Matthew 6:33

Christ spoke about God’s Kingdom and throughout the old and new testaments it is mentioned many times. So I reflected on this as I was interceding for this nation, and became distraught.  For the days are evil, and the United States of America has been transferred into corrupt and evil hands. I have never interceded so intensely or so long as during the last four years of President Trump’s administration.  And although this is important to God for us to intercede for our country and our leaders, He has also, reminded me that every s government will one day pass away while God’s government and sovereignty will remain forever.  So my priority in intercession has been adjusted – to bring as many into the Kingdom of God, in these last days, whereby Christ reigns, and we can enjoy His peace and counsel today and forevermore. 

“For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.”
 Isaiah 9:6

So how do we pray- as the Lord’s prayer demonstrates, we pray, “Thy Kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.”  This is the first petition mentioned in the Lord’s prayer, which Christ taught His disciples- Not putting our personal petitions first, but the earnest plea that God take over in His sovereignty ruling the nations as He rules heaven.  For God is patient to await the salvation of all who will be saved, before He sweeps the earth clean of its wickedness and establishes His eternal physical kingdom which He promises to come.
(Matthew 6: 5-15, 2 Peter 3:9)

However, the Kingdom of God presently, exists, not physically, but as a spiritual dwelling, whereby, all who come to faith in Jesus Christ shall enter. 

“Jesus replied, “Very truly I tell you, no one can see the kingdom of God unless they are born again.” John 3:3

“The acts of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery;  idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God.”
Galatians 5:19-20

It is clear that only those who are righteous may enter the Kingdom of God and righteousness does not come about by our good deeds, but by faith in the only one who is righteous and makes us righteous by our faith in His shed blood.
(Ephesians 2:8-9)

The result of faith in Christ, however, will result in good works, because abiding in Jesus Christ will always produce His fruit. 
(John 15: 1-4)

When Nicodemus inquired of Jesus concerning salvation, Jesus told him he would have to be “born again” in order to enter the Kingdom of God.  He could not enter as he was, but would have to be spiritually changed, having God’s divine nature instead of his sinful one. (John 3)

*How does this come about that one can be born spiritually and then enter God’s Kingdom where God’s Holy Spirit dwells with us, in us and upon us?  It is by His Holy Spirit we become new creatures in Christ Jesus.  New creatures require a new place to dwell, for the old is no longer adequate, and must pass away.
(2 Corinthians 5, Mark 2:22)

 *“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16

Jesus would say things like the “Kingdom of God is at hand”, and ‘’you are not far from the kingdom of God”, which testifies of a spiritual place not a physical one.
(Mark 1:15)

After the earth is cleansed and all wickedness is swept away, God will establish His physical Kingdom where Christ and His bride- the Church will reign one thousand years.  And during this time all the people who survive the great tribulation will come and learn about God and be taught His ways.  Then the deceiver will be loose for a time, once again making war against God and His People, by gathering the nations, and all that join him in this last rebellion will be destroyed. The end will then come, whereby, the dead will be resurrected to stand before God to be judged according to their deeds and those names not written in the Lamb’s Book of Life will enter hell, where they have no rest from the punishment for their sins, because they refused God’s mercy and salvation through His Son, Jesus Christ.
(Romans 2: 5-8, Revelation 20, Acts 4:12, Proverbs 14:12).

Then God, will create a new heaven and a new earth where those who love Him and His Kingdom, will be with Him forever and ever.
(Revelation 21:1-4)

So, instead of focusing on one nation and one man, should we not be praying for a revival that will sweep across all the nations revealing Jesus Christ; a great harvest before the coming of the Lord, a global repentance, beginning first with the Body of Christ.

“For it is time for judgment to begin with God’s household; and if it begins with us, what will the outcome be for those who do not obey the gospel of God?”  1 Peter 4:17
