Our Trial by Fire ?

faith-trial-2a     “Blessed be (praise be to) the God and Father of our Lord and Sovereign King Jesus Christ, Who according to His abundant mercy . . . hath begotten us (you and I) again unto a living Hope* (assurance) by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead . . .
To an inheritance (for we are joint-heirs with Him) that is incorruptible, and undefiled . . . and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you _____ (your name). Who are kept by the power of God (Deity, divinity – II Peter 1:4) through faith,
ready to be revealed in this last time
. . . !

     “For we are made a spectacle unto men and to angels . . .”

Wherein, ye greatly rejoice . . . though now for a season, if need be, ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations.   That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than that of gold which perishes . . .. even though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ !”
I Peter 1:3-7

     “Knowing this . . . that the trying (trial) of your faith, worketh patience. But let patience have her perfect work, so that ye may also be perfect and entire, lacking nothing . . . for faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God . . . .

And blessed is the man or woman that endureth temptation, for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of Life, which the Lord (our Sovereign King) shall give to all them that love Him !”   James 1:3-4, 12 and ref: Romans 10:17

     “Yea, beloved . . . think it not strange concerning the fiery trial that is to try you (Malachi 3:1-4), as though some strange thing is happening unto you. But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ’s sufferings (the trial of His faith in you) . . .so that when His glory shall be revealed ( in you – Colossians 1:27), ye may be glad also with exceeding joy !”   I Peter 4:12-13

     “And I will bring the third part through the fire, and I will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried . . . . And they shall call upon My name, and I will hear them . . .  and I will say, It is My people, and they shall say, The LORD (Jehovah, Yehuwah) is my God (Elohim – Mighty One) . . . !”

O Men of God, Arise !

     “Thou therefore, my son (and my daughter), be strong in the grace* (G5485 – divine Influence) that is in Christ Jesus . . .

Endure hardness (conflict, adversity), as a good soldier of Jesus Christ. For no man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life (this world) . . . . so that he may please Him Who hath chosen him to be a soldier . . .”

     “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood (not even our own), but against principalities, and against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in the heavens (ref: Ephesians 2:2) . . .

     Wherefore, take unto you the whole armour of God (Theos – Deity, divinity), that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all . . . to stand !”

     “For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal (weak, fleshly), but mighty* (full of power) through God, to the pulling down of strongholds, yea, casting down imaginations, and every high thing which exalts itself (Isaiah 14:12-16 and Revelation 12:7-11) against the knowing of God . . . . And bringing into captivity every thought to the perfect obedience of Christ . . . !”

Striving for the Mastery – The Crown of Eternal Life !

 Moses 2    “Transgression of physical law is transgression of the moral law; for God is as truly the Author of physical laws as He is the Author of the moral law. His law (Luke 10:25-28) is written with His Own finger upon every nerve, every muscle, every faculty, which has been entrusted to man . . .”

And every man that striveth for the mastery, is temperate (exercises self-control in both diet and chastity) in all things . . . Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown (one that perishes), but we an incorruptible . . . !”
I Corinthians 9:24-27

In the preparation of a people for the Lord’s second coming, a great work is to be accomplished through the promulgation (teaching and instruction) of health principles.
The people are to be instructed in regard to the needs of the physical organism and the value of healthful living as taught in the Scriptures, that the bodies which God has created may be presented to Him a living sacrifice, fitted to render Him acceptable service . . . Continue reading

And They Two Shall be One Flesh . . .?

     “Yet ye say . . . Wherefore?
Because the LORD (Jehovah, Yehuwah) hath been witness between thee and the wife of thy youth . . . against whom thou hats dealt treacherously. Yet she is thy companion, and the wife of thy Covenant (Oath) . . .

     For did not He make them one (Matthew 19:3-9)? . . . and wherefore one? So that He might seek a godly seed (children). Therefore take heed to your spirit (mind), and let none deal treacherously against the wife of his youth . . . . For the LORD, the God (Elohim – Mighty One) of Israel, saith He hateth putting away in divorce . . . !”
Malachi 2:13-16 & ref: Malachi 4:6

Note:   My wife and I are sharing this short yet powerful testimony of a
little girl who is struggling with the battle taking place between her Dad
and Mom. As I watched it today I was very inspired, as well as saddened,
for although the little girl’s heart’s desire is right . . . she did not know
how to fix a seemingly impossible dilemma.

      So many of God’s children are struggling, and although they may
sincerely desire for their marriage healed and restored, they often do not
realize what it is they are literally fighting against, nor where the fight
is coming from . . .

   My wife and I know all to well from personal experience what this battle
is like. For we wrestled for years to overcome, yet it seemed no matter how
hard we “tried,” nothing seemed to really work. Looking back now, I clearly
see that we were “fighting” in the flesh, rather than the power of God’s
Spirit !

For our Father in heaven has given each of us great Light from His
Word, and above all, this assurance . . . “For the weapons of our warfare
are not carnal (weak and human), but mighty (full of power and possible)
through God . . . to the pulling down of strongholds; casting down
imaginations, and every high thing (those spirits, and powers of the air)
that exalts itself against the knowledge (knowing – John 17:3) of God . . .

     And bringing into captivity every thought to the perfect obedience of
Christ !”   II Corinthians 10:4-5 & ref: Ephesians 2:2

      “We wrestle not against flesh and blood (not our spouse, nor even our
own), but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the
darkness* of this world . . . against spiritual wickedness in the heavens…

      Wherefore my brother and sister, take unto you the whole armour of God
(Deity – II Peter 1:4), so that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day . . .
 and having done all, to stand ! . . . .

Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with the Truth (John 17:17), and having on the breastplate of righteousness (Jeremiah 23:5-6) . . . And your feet shod with the preparation (ointment) of the Glad Tidings of Peace . . .
     And above all, taking the shield of faith . . . and faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God (Romans 10:17) . . . wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one (Satan, the devil) . . . And take the helmet of your Salvation (that deliverance, freedom and healing wrought and complete for you by the Lord Jesus Christ), and the Sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God . . . !”   Ephesians 6:12-18

      “For it is not by might, nor by power . . . but by My Spirit saith the LORD of hosts !”   And the Words that I speak unto you, they are Spirit, and they are Life !”     Zechariah 4:6 and John 6:63 and ref: Isaiah 55:8-11

     We pray that this little girls testimony will touch you. And I encourage you also to watch the story of the miracle which the LORD did in our lives, and is more than willing also to do in yours, if you will seek Him with all your heart, and fight the good fight of faith !

Victory and Freedom – The Conundrum of the “Balanced View ?”

AD VindicateThis article was posted at ADVindicate, and the link to the original article is located at the bottom of the page. We pray that what you read here will be a great blessing to you and those you love !

Scenario One

The year was 1999, and a denominational publishing house heard my conversion story from homosexuality, and asked me to submit my story for publication, as a resource for our denomination. I was given a deadline of four weeks.

After much prayer and fourteen-hour days of writing, I met their deadline. After many months, I finally called for a status report.

“Oh!  You haven’t received your manuscript? It was supposed to have been returned to you.”

“Why would it be returned?” I asked.

“It was rejected. The book committee decided they wanted a more balanced view.”

“Balanced view of what?” I asked. “I was asked to submit my story. Are you suggesting it is unbalanced?” I was alarmed.

“No, they just thought it would be better to have more stories to put into one book in order to present a balanced view,” came the reply.

I wondered aloud, “So stories of victory and success must be balanced out with stories of failure?    Why?”

“Fight Church” – Discerning between Light and darkness ?

     There is a polarization taking place all around us Today . . . . men and women are choosing sides, and standing under the banner of either Christ or Satan. And the sides can be known only as we compare the character with that of the Son of Almighty God, as revealed in His Word . . . . the Holy Bible !

The signs of our Lord and Saviour’s soon return are fast fulfilling each day, and the LORD is pouring out His Spirit and Light as never before. Now is the time to seek the LORD with all of our hearts, that the Light and glory of His character may shine through us, to all those around us each day . . . !

     This week, a dear sister in Christ sent us this preview of a film called “Fight Church,” which is scheduled for release this month. In this film we are seeing as we never could have imagined before, the deception with which the dragon, “that old serpent” (the Devil and Satan), is seeking to take the world captive. The minds of men, women and little children are being blinded by the media, so that they are unable to rightly discern between good and evil, Truth and error . . . !


     Now, more than ever before we are realizing the LORD’s purpose in calling us to reveal His Light and Truth through our new film, “The Dragon Revealed !”   We ask for your prayers, both for our family and I, as well as each of the men and their families at Little Light Studios.     We are diligently working many hours each day to have this film ready by end of spring, and Now is the time that the warning must be given. For the world and the church must see in Jesus Christ a Living Saviour . . . . One Who is willing and able to save (deliver, set free, and heal) to the uttermost all that come unto GOD through faith and trust
in Him !

We need in ever greater measure, the gift and Blessing of His Holy Spirit and the mind of Christ, so that we may reveal Him to a world lost in darkness, doubt and sin. What the world needs most of all, is to know the LORD’s great love and desire to set each captive free !

And that the same power which He exercised while here on earth, is available Today . . . . to all who will call upon His name in faith !Please share this message with all that you know. And with prayer, if you are impressed by the Lord, we need your help to make this film ready and available
for the lowest possible cost to all who are searching for Light and hope !

Please contact us at the address below or at the link to Little Light Studios if you would like to help with the final work on this film.

The Fight of Faith – how the Victory is made your own ?

rejoice2     “And I heard a loud Voice saying in heaven, Now is come Salvation and Strength, and the Kingdom (Sovereign, King, Reign) of our God, and the power of His Christ (Anointed One, Anointing): for the Accuser (Satan) of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night . . . !”   Revelation 12:10

     “Now is the judgment (tribunal, condemnation) of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out. And I, if I be lifted up, will draw all men unto Me . . . !”   John 12:31-32 

O sing unto the LORD (Jehovah, Yehuwah) a new song; for He hath done marvelous things. His Right Hand, and His holy Arm hath gotten Him the Victory ! . . . . The LORD hath made known His Salvation: His righteousness hath He openly shewed in the sight of the heathen.     He hath remembered His mercy and His Truth (Word of Promise) toward the house of Israel. All the ends of the earth have seen the Salvation (H3444 – Yehushua) of our God . . . !”     Psalm 98:1-3

He is Mighty to Save !

“And He showed me Joshua the high priest standing before the Angel of the Lord, and Satan standing at his right hand to resist him. And the LORD said unto Satan, The LORD (Jehovah, Yehuwah) rebuke thee, O Satan; even the LORD that hath chosen Jerusalem rebuke thee: is not this a brand (you and I) plucked out of the fire?   Now Joshua was clothed with filthy garments, and stood before the angel.”
Zechariah 3:1-3.

For we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities (perversities, mischief), like the wind, have taken us away  . . . !”     Isaiah 64:6 Continue reading
