Rising Above Disappointment

Rising Above Disappointment. In this life, there will be disappointments. There is no way around it. Everyone will experience it at some point in time during this journey called life. Disappointment defined by Webster as defeated in expectation or hope 2)sad or displeased because someone or something has failed to fulfill one’s hope or expectation. Disappointment can have devasting results on a person’s life if not handled in a positive manner. It can cause you to lose hope, or not believe anything good will come out of your life. It can hinder your growth, naturally and spiritually.

Rising above disappointment. Life is full of ups and downs. We do not always achieve everything we set out to do. Things don’t always go the way we envision it to go. Two people can look at a glass of water and one will see it as half empty and the other as half full. What difference does it make? The perception will impact your thoughts, your thoughts will impact your feelings, your feelings will impact your behavior.

Rising above disappointment. A person perceives the glass to be half empty. This person thought pattern about life is more likely to be one filled with negative thoughts i.e. nothing goes my way, everyone is against me, if it wasn’t for bad luck I wouldn’t have any luck etc. If that is the thought pattern the feelings attached to that thought more likely include sadness, anger, and/or frustration. These feelings will more likely result in the person engaging in negative behaviors that will only enforce those beliefs, i.e. not pursuing dreams, not giving their best efforts etc. FULL POST

Arrest Warrant

I initially published this as a note on my Facebook page. Now, I am sharing this with everyone in hope that more people will come into agreement with me I am glad to report that since I first published this in February, that arrests are coming more quickly than they have in the past. Also, several cold cases have been solved. I believe in the power of agreement.

This is the post I published on Facebook: Sick of the violence and lack of respect for life. Sick of the enemy killing and attempting to kill our children. Sick of the “don’t tell” mentality. Two young girls were shot over the weekend. Young man killed just walking down the street. I still have the image of that mother on her knees in the middle of the street crying “my baby”. I’m asking every intercessor to travail in mourning and groaning before the throne for justice. Holy Spirit pray and travail through us. We have run out of words. Interpret our moans and groans to the father. Heavenly father, if you don’t help us, there is no help. We come before you the righteous judge and present our case to you. The enemy is trying to take out a whole generation. The blood has come up the window and it cries out from the street. Righteous judge, we request an arrest warrant be issued for this enemy. Seek out every murderer and those that attempted murder. We decree their own words shall condemn them as they boast about their deeds. There shall be no hiding place for them. Every hiding place is revealed. Those that have protected them shall do so no more. We bind up fear that causes those that know the truth from speaking the truth. Send an angel to chase them down a dark and slippery path. Send delusions their way, confuse their minds, let them see the open eyes of those they murder everywhere they go. Let them hear the cry of their victims day and night. Let there be no rest for their spirit til they come to repentance. Let them feel like they are in Twilight Zone unable to escape their nightmare. Let them run when no one is chasing them. We decree this year that more murders will be exposed and captured than ever before. The possessor of the gate control what comes in and what goes out. Who comes and goes. What is allowed and is not allowed. We possess the gates of our cities and evict the spirit of violence. Jesus blood prevails and the spirit of death and destruction can not cross the blood line. We attack the strongman of murder and all connecting spirits. Anger, hatred, jealousy, bitterness, envy, pride, racism, and suicide, you are rendered helpless before the blood. We serve notice on every gang and terrorist that the land does not belong to you. The earth is the lord and all that dwell within. Yes, that include you. Ezekiel 18:4 Behold (pay close attention), all souls are Mine; the soul of the father as well as the soul of the son is Mine. The soul who sins will die. God has given you a choice advises you to Choose Life.Deu 30:19 I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live. Do you understand you have the power to break or bring a generational curse on your family by the choice you make? Let love arise in the hearts of the people. Peace rule in our surrounding. We choose life and we loose life in our communities. Father, comfort all those that mourn. You are the only one that brings good out of evil. Let what the enemy thought would cause them to turn from you be the very thing that will cause them to run to you for there is no other place of comfort. Release your peace, love, comfort and hope to them and give them strength to get through this for even this too shall pass. Arrest Warrant for murder and.or attempted murder:1) 15-year-old boy burned alive and placed in a garbage can, 2)Lane Bryant killer the murder of my cousin, 3)Eddie Jernigan 4)every person that has murdered or attempted to murder regardless of the length of time that has elapsed. If they have to make a deathbed confession, let it be so. Please feel free to add the name of someone you know.

Psalm 51 A Study In Repentance

Psalm 51 is a study of repentance. David, King of Israel broke three of God's commandments. Thou shall not covenant your neighbor wife, thou shall not commit adultery, and thou shall not kill(Exodus 20). David fully understood that he had broken these commandments. However, he was comfortable in his sin.

God sends Nathan to David and Nathan tells David a parable about a rich man who has everything and takes from a poor man who has very little, something that he values very much. David rises up in anger and self-righteousness 2 Samuel 12:5 And David's anger was greatly kindled against the man; and he said to Nathan, As the Lord liveth, the man that hath done this thing shall surely die. We are quick to pass judgment on others while dismissing our own flaws and mistakes.

2 Samuel 12:7 And Nathan said to David, Thou art the man. The truth of Nathan's words must have hit David like a sledgehammer. Thou are the man. David covet his neighbor's wife, committed adultery with her and put a hit out on the life of her husband. He betrayed someone that was fiercely loyal to him. He gave Uriah the Hittite a death warrant and had him deliver it to the person that would carry it out. Wow. That is heartless and the ultimate betrayal. FULL POST

Jesus Died For You

Jesus came into this world, took on flesh and walk on this earth for over 30 years. He didn’t come to condemn man but came seeking to save the lost. Jesus was rejected and misunderstood. Jesus knows what it is to be lied upon, talked about, mistreated and betrayed. He knew his fate upon entering this world but he came anyway. He came to die that you may live.

Jesus came to save the morally good person, the kind person, the one who is generous to others and compassionate. He came to save the lesbian, homosexual, perverted, pimp, prostitute, murderer and child molester. He came to save the liar, drunkard, thief, adulterer and adulteress, and gambler. He came to save the gang leader, gang members, and terrorist. He came to save the uneducated, well educated, mentally ill, poor and rich. He came to save the unbeliever, the fool who says there is no God and the atheist. He came to save the witch, sorcerer, and warlock. He came to save the young and the old.

Jesus came to save all mankind. God does not put sin in different categories, stating which is greater or less. SIN: Anything that violates or goes against the word of God. This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh. For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would. But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law. Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, Envying, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. (Gal. 5:16-21, KJV). FULL POST

Making the transition

The word transition automatically implies change. Webster defines transition this way: a passage from one state, stage, subject, or place to another: b: a movement, development, or evolution from one form, stage, or style to another. It is the act of preparing to do things in a different manner. It is the state of moving from one place to another or from one thing or task to another.

As this year draws to an end we are transitioning into the new year. Naturally, many things are taking place as we prepare for the new year. Some customs include giving your home a thorough cleaning, discarding things we no longer have any use for, perhaps checking the freezer for items that need to be disposed of etc. Businesses take inventory of what products are left, which did well and which did not. Accountants review their financial books to determine where they stand financially.

This year we have a transition of power in the White House. President Obama has extended his hand to assist President-elect Donald Trump in making this transition. President Obama states he is willing to do all that it takes to assist President-elect Trump because it is important for him to do well that our nation made do well. He understands that this transition is more important than his personal beliefs/opinions about the incoming President. FULL POST

Donald Trump President-Elect? What Now?

1st Samuel 8:19 Nevertheless the people refused to obey the voice of Samuel; and they said, Nay; but we will have a king over us;

Let me make it perfectly clear that it is my opinion that Donald Trump Should Not Be President. He is racist. He is sexist.He has no experience in government. He has No experience in military strategies and little regard for those who have served,.disregard for the law when he it goes against what he considers to be violence but he advocates violence. Wonder why hate groups are attracted to him? He is self-absorbed. He right. He lacks compassion. He has no regard for the poor,sick, or disabled.Not only does he attractsis egotist.

I personally think the only reason he ran for President was to get back at President Obama for humiliating him at the White House Correspondent dinner. Why is he so focused on destroying the legacy of President Barack Obama? https://youtu.be/k8TwRmX6zs4. Advocates during away with Geneva Convention, and possibly NATO.He has been inconsistent about his stance on many issues http://www.nbcnews.com/politics/2016-election/full-list-donald-trump-s-rapidly-changing-policy-positions-n547801 He has lack of emotional control and is temperamental.

Halloween, Evil Glorified

Halloween is just a few days away. Stores have packed their shelves with candy, party stores have changed their decor and scary costumes are everywhere. Church's debate on whether to celebrate Halloween or offer alternative gathering for the children. Reports of "Creepy Clowns" intent on hurting, kidnapping and scarring children are on the rise. What is really going on?

Let's back up. I encourage you to read my previous blog "http://blogs.christianpost.com/prayer/halloween-dont-be-tricked-12825/". I will share the following excerpts here: Did you know that October 31st is considered New Year's Day for witches and warlocks? Their New Year starts October 31st and ends October 30 of the next year. According to Witches and Warlock Annual Wiccan Holidays, "The wall between earth and the underworld is thin at this time of year. On Halloween night, the wall opens. Samhain, the Lord of Darkness, rises from the underworld. He roams the world looking for lost souls. It is an evil and wicked night, a perfect night for a witch to celebrate New Year’s."

Some people don't believe that witches and warlock exist. They think that's just old fairy tale stuff to scare children and feeble minded people. The bible speaks of witches: Leviticus 19:31 - Regard not them that have familiar spirits, neither seek after wizards, to be defiled by them: I [am] the LORD your God. Read the following for more information: http://www.kingjamesbibleonline.org/Bible-Verses-About-Witchcraft/. James Melton has written a very enlightening track on this subject that can be found at this site: http://biblebelievers.com/jmelton/Wizzards.html.

What is really going on? Intercessors recognize that something more sinister is going on? What you must understand is that witches have been preparing with joy for this season. It is their time to release evil into the atmosphere. To establish an atmosphere of fear, horror and torment in the earth realm. There is a those that are drawn to evil, violent, horrific crimes. spirit behind the "Creepy Clown" and video games such as "Slender Man" and a connection between There are some people that wait all year long for this opportunity to get behind costumes and openly walk the streets, hide in alleys and gangways to perpetrate evil, fear and bring harm to others. The rapist, thief,pedophile, murderer and perverted are excited about this opportunity.
In light of the early manifestation of lurking evil and releasing of fear and intimidation into the atmosphere it is urgent that Intercessors take back territory and be on high alert.

INTERCESSORS HAVE BEEN GIVEN AUTHORITY TO PENETRATE THE HEAVENS AND BLOCK DEMONIC ACTIVITIES. We are not alone in this fight but must call upon our Heavenly father to release Warring Angels with swords dipped in the Blood of Jesus, Lamb of God, to cut off the head of the enemy. We must intercede for protection over our homes, our children and communities. WE MUST INTENSIFY PRAYER AND COVER THE GATES TO OUR CITIES.

What is really going on? Intercessors clearly understand Ephesian 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Gates are entry way in and out of the city. Gates allow or forbid or block access. One does not need the spirit of discernment to recognize the spirit of murder and destruction that is hovering over our cities. What is needed is for intercessors, prophetess, prophets, pastors, and leaders to suit up for warfare and man the gates to evict the enemy, and retake territory.

Declare that the gates of this city is closed to Satan and demonic activities, That warring Angels are assisting us in evicting the enemy. Declare the King of Glory is welcome to possess our gates.Psalm 24:7 Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.
8 Who is this King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty, the LORD mighty in battle.
9 Lift up your heads, O ye gates; even lift them up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.
10 Who is this King of glory? The LORD of hosts, he is the King of glory. Selah.

SPEAK THE ANSWER NOT THE PROBLEM. THE ANSWER IS THE WORD OF GOD. HEAVENLY FATHER we invite you to possess our nation, states, government, cities, communities, and homes. Evict the enemy, sweep him out with all of his demonic spirits and allow your presence saturate this territory. We ask you to allow the shed Blood of your son,Jesus to cover us. Protect our children and families particularly doing this Halloween season as we intensify our warfare against the spirits being released over our region. Take the blinders off the eyes of people that the enemy cause to sit in darkness and allow the light of your word to gain entrance to their hearts. Pull down every contrary thought, believe, ritual, routine that goes contrary to your word. We bind up murder, rape, perversion, fear and torment. We loose safety, love, hope, peace, comfort and the fear of the lord upon each and every soul. Protect us from the violent man and let the warring angels chase him down a dark slippery path which has no escape. Let your people rejoice in your righteousness and dwell under the shadow of your wings. Thank you God for ordaining peace and safety for those that love you and all that are connected to us in any way. You are our loving father, our protector, our shield and our solid rock. We declare that all of power is in your hands. Therefore we bow down before you and glorify your name for you are worthy of our love and praise forever,forever and forever. We trust you and believe that you will do this for us in the name of your son, Jesus Christ, by the power and authority of the Holy Spirit and your word.

Prayers For Our Children

Children of this generation face challenges that we never dreamt of today. In our generation we were allowed to play outside until the streets light came on. There was the sound of laughter in the streets. There was a sense of community safety. We dare not talk back to an adult. Teachers was expected to be person with high standards and morals. Being a “bad” child consisted of sneaking a cigarette or drink from the family stash, or ditching school for a day. It was not hard to distinguish right from wrong. Your parents taught you that at home, the preacher taught it at church, teachers taught it at school and society back it up as well. The village invested in raising their children.

Today’s generation children, young children are being shot as they play on their front porch, or on the basketball court or even just going to the candy store. Children are taught how to fall on the floor at the sound of gunshots. Parents never thought that their child may not return home from school because someone beat them to death in the girl’s bathroom, or on the streets as they came home from school. Parents never consider the possibility that a pedophile would kidnap their child, rapist rape them or someone would rob little children walking home from school. Parents never thought their children would be taught about “different” families that included two moms or two dads. Who knew there would come a time when “homosexual/lesbian lifestyle would be celebrated and it would be politically incorrect to criticize or speak against it. Your child’s teacher could come to school sporting a man’s suit one week and a fancy dress the next. You teach your child that using drugs is wrong but society legalize marijuana and promote the use of it. FULL POST
