Yesterday we looked at the idea that darkness could actually be the word “not” (ou) in the old and new testament. We discussed that the light always has power over the darkness just as physical
Is God using death and “not” for his eternal good purposes? Rom 11:32
light makes the darkness flee when the switch is flipped. Natural is a reflection of the spiritual.
We saw some of the aspects of the “not” in 1 Cor 13 or the famous “love chapter”. Most see the love verses, but sometimes miss the “not” verses. Anytime we are told something is “not” or to “not” do something, we are being fed death via the law. I believe that we all know in our hearts what is right and wrong.
Paul called ministry of “not” (the old testament) the “ministry of death” in 2 Cor 3:7
But if the ministry of death, in letters engraved on stones, came with glory, so that the sons of Israel could not look intently at the face of Moses because of the glory of his face, fading as it was 2 Cor 3:7
Want to see something very revealing? I pray the Lord opens our eyes and hearts to see this.Continue reading
What exactly is “his blood”?
The last few days have been in intense scripture study and things about the “blood of him” and “soul of him” and “the flesh” have arisen. Let’s take a look.
Is the “soul of all flesh” really the “blood of him”? Leviticus 17:14
Could this also be “his soul” that he “laid down” “for the life of the world” and “on our heads” (Matt 27:25)?
Could this be related to “the woman” of Genesis 3?
Let’s consider these things together, shall we?
Blood of him
Blessings to you today.
Does God really live in our heart or is that something we just say?
I have been going through a tough and challenging experience that maybe you have as well if you are a “person of faith”.
For some crazy, insane reason, I actually believe the Lord is living inside me.
Is this a crazy thought or maybe even “blasphemy” as many “Christians” are telling me in not so nice words?
Well, what are we told to do by Christians when they first approach us?Continue reading
Have you ever played the game called “find the differences” in a picture?
Well, ask yourself the question… “How old was Ahazaih when he became King”?
Then, look at these two verses, first one from 2 Chronicles 2:22 and the second from 2 Kings 8:26.
See any differences?
If you do and wonder what is going on, ask the Lord and listen. He will reveal powerful and amazing things to you from within your own heart and mind. Far beyond what you can ask or even imagine. Eph 3:20
Here is something that I pray will really encourage you today. Check out this verse in it’s original words and consider this question.
Who is it that God is telling us that practices good or evil?

The truth is indeed, VERY good my friend. May we both hear his words of truth and life in our heart, mind today.
Today, I am asking the question: Should we believe man or God?
Man tells us this (is what God said) in Ezekiel 14:21:
For thus saith the Lord GOD; How much more when I send my four sore judgments upon Jerusalem, the sword, and the famine, and the noisome beast, and the pestilence, to cut off from it man and beast? Ezekiel 14:21 KJV
“For this is what the Sovereign LORD says: How much worse will it be when I send against Jerusalem my four dreadful judgments–sword and famine and wild beasts and plague–to kill its men and their animals! Ezekiel 14:21 NIV
Let’s see the actual original Hebrew words God gave us and read them ourselves directly. Continue reading
I don’t know what happened, but the Spirit seems gone. He was very active for 3 years speaking and revealing powerful things to me.
Then, sometime in April I think, it seems he just vanished. That is why I haven’t posted. It would be me attempting to fake it. Before this was impossible.
Since that time, I have not been hearing him and really struggling with darkness on and off. Most days I have no desire to even study his Word.
“What’s the use”? I hear. “Nobody seems to care what God’s word says anyway”. For me, the power comes when I get to share the awesome things I hear with others and they receive them. If no one can receive them, I can’t seem to “open the package” it seems.
Yes, but true to what I am experiencing. And have been experiencing. Life has been very dark for the most part since that time.
I do hope he returns or “unhides” himself. Lord, where are you?
These are things that took me by surprise when I first noticed them. Have you noticed?
Is God our “minds eye” who allows us to truly “see” spiritual truth?
Have you noticed that “darkness” already existed in the second verse of the entire bible?
The word is “choshek” and here is the Strong’s entry for it.
H2822 choshek kho-shek’
from H2821; the dark; hence (literally) darkness; figuratively, misery, destruction, death, ignorance, sorrow, wickedness.
KJV: dark(-ness), night, obscurity.
Have you noticed that in Isaiah 45:7 that the Lord tells us he is the one who created the darkness? Do you ever wonder when it was created?
Have you noticed that in Genesis 2:10 it says a river flowed out of Eden to water the Garden. How could this garden be in Eden?Continue reading
Who are the “Wolves in Sheep’s clothing”?
Have you ever pondered these verses and asked the Lord their true meaning?
“Beware of false prophets who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravaging wolves Matt 7:15
So, what does it mean to be a “sheep” and to be in “sheep’s clothing”? Is this a religious or non-religious person? Why are they “ravaging wolves”? Who is this referring to?
Let’s look at Ezekiel 22.
“Son of man, say to her, ‘You are a land that is not cleansed or rained on in the day of indignation.’ 25 There is a conspiracy of her prophets in her midst like a roaring lion tearing the prey. They have devoured lives; they have taken treasure and precious things; they have made many widows in the midst of her. 26 Her priests have done violence to My law and have profaned My holy things; they have made no distinction between the holy and the profane, and they have not taught the difference between the unclean and the clean; and they hide their eyes from My sabbaths, and I am profaned among them. 27 Her princes within her are like wolves tearing the prey, by shedding blood and destroying lives in order to get dishonest gain. 28 Her prophets have smeared whitewash for them, seeing false visions and divining lies for them, saying, ‘Thus says the Lord God,’ when the Lord has not spoken Ez 22:24-28
When do the “wolves” come in?Continue reading
Jesus tells us some very SHOCKING things. I am wondering if ANYONE actually believes these words? I have yet to meet someone who does.
You will be hated by all because of My name, but it is the one who has endured to the end who will be saved Matt 10:22
You will be hated by all because of My name, but the one who endures to the end, he will be saved Mark 13:13
and you will be hated by all because of My name Luke 21:17
Let me ask you this “Christ-follower” … are you hated by ALL?
Think about the person you know who knows God’s Word the best. Are THEY hated by ALL?Continue reading
