Our Freedom and Victory in Christ Jesus – Guaranteed !

     “O Israel, . . . thou hast destroyed thyself, but in Me is thine help. I will be thy King, for where is any other that may save thee in all of thy cities . . . ?” Hosea 13:9-14

     “Sing, O daughter of Zion; shout, O Israel . . . be glad and rejoice with all thy heart, O daughter of Jerusalem.  For the LORD (Jehovah, Yehuwah) hath taken away thy judgments* (Galatians 3:13, Deuteronomy 28:15-47), He hath cast out thine enemy . . . . Yea, the King of Israel, even the LORD, is in the midst (heart) of thee: thou shalt not see evil any more . . .

In that day it shall be said to Jerusalem . . . My city and My people which are called by My name (Daniel 9:19) . . . Fear thou not ___________ (your name), and to Zion, Let not thine hands be slack.   For the LORD thy God (Elohim) in the midst of thee is Mighty* (full of power, a Warrior, valiant and strong); He will SAVE !

He will rejoice over thee __________ (your name) with joy; He will rest (engrave) in His love, He will joy over thee with singing . . . !” Zephaniah 3:14-17, I Peter 2:5-9 and Ephesians 2:10 Continue reading

Simple Living (active) Faith ?

 rainbow 2a    “Believe that Jesus meets with you (and dwells within you . . . because He has promised); believe that He is willing to bless you. Turn the eye away from self (your own weakness). Look unto Jesus, talk of His matchless love. By beholding Him you will become changed into His likeness. When you pray, be brief, come right to the point. Do not preach the Lord a sermon in your long prayers. Ask for the Bread of Life (His Spirit-filled promises – John 6:27-50) as a hungry child asks bread of his earthly father. God will bestow upon us every needed blessing if we ask Him in simplicity and faith.”
– Counsels to the Church, p.294

     “True faith lays hold of and claims the promised Blessing before it is realized and felt. We must send up our petitions in faith within the second veil and let our faith take hold of the promised blessing and claim it as ours (Galatians 3:14). We are then to believe that we receive the blessing, because our faith has hold of it, and according to the Word it is ours. “What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them !”
Mark 11:24 and Hebrews 11:1-6

     Here is faith, naked faith, to believe that we receive the blessing (the promise spoken), even before we realize it. When the promised blessing is realized and enjoyed, faith is swallowed up. But many suppose they have much faith when sharing largely of the Holy Spirit and that they cannot have faith unless they feel the power of the Spirit. Swallpaper-2995113uch confound faith with the blessing that comes through faith. The very time to exercise faith is when we feel destitute of the Spirit.

When thick clouds of darkness seem to hover over the mind, then is the time to let living (active) faith pierce the darkness and scatter the clouds. True faith rests on the promises contained in the Word of God, and those only who obey that Word can claim its glorious promises.If ye abide in Me, and My Words . . . which are Spirit and Life . . . abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you !” John 15:7 and 6:63.

     “Whatsoever we ask, we receive of Him, because we keep His commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in His sight.” 1 John 3:22.      We should be much in secret prayer. Christ is the Vine, ye (we) are the branches. And if we would grow and flourish, we must continually draw sap and nourishment from the Living Vine (John 15:1-7); for separated from the Vine we have no strength !     

     I asked the angel why there was no more faith and power in Israel. He said, “Ye let go of the arm of the Lord too soon. Press your petitions to the throne, and hold on by strong faith (Matthew 11:12 and Luke 18:3-8). The promises are sure. Believe ye Guardian Angelreceive the things ye ask for, and ye shall have them.” Mark 11:24     

     I was then pointed to Elijah. He was subject to like passions as we are, and he prayed earnestly. His faith endured the trial. Seven times he prayed before the LORD, and at last the cloud was seen.      I saw that we had doubted the sure promises, and wounded the Saviour by our lack of faith. Said the angel, “Gird the armor about thee, and above all take the shield of faith; for that will guard the heart, the very life, from the fiery darts (lies – John 8:44) of the wicked.”     

     If the enemy can lead the desponding to take their eyes off from Jesus, and look to themselves, and dwell upon their own unworthiness, instead of dwelling upon the worthiness (merits, righteousness) of Jesus as our Substitute and Surety, His love, His merits, and His great mercy, he will get away their shield of faith and gain his object; they will be exposed to his fiery temptations. The weak should therefore look to Jesus, and believe in Him (the Word of Almighty God); they then exercise (step forward, and walk out in) faith . . .”
– Early Writings, p.72-73

For He verily cannot fail . . . nor will He ever put us to shame !

So Great Salvation – a Closer Look at Daniel 9:24 in Light of Calvary !

     “For thus saith the LORD (Jehovah, Yehuwah) that created the heavens, God Himself that formed the earth . . . (ref: Psalm 33:6-9 and Genesis 1:1 thru 2:3) I have not spoken in secret, in some dark place of the earth, Yea, I said not unto the seed (children) of Jacob, Seek ye Me in vain . . . for I the LORD that speak righteousness . . . yea, I Am mighty to SAVE . . . !” Isaiah 45:11-19 and 63:1

     “God, Who at sundry times and in diverse manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, hath in these last days spoken unto us by His Son, by Whom also He made the worlds . . . How shall we escape, if we neglect (are carless, make light of) so great Salvation, which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard Him . . . ?”
Hebrews 1:1-3 and 2:3

     “The same power that Christ exercised when He walked visibly among men is in His Word. It was by His Word that Jesus healed disease and cast out demons; by His Word He stilled the sea and raised the dead, and the people bore witness that His Word was with power. He spoke the Word of God, as He had spoken to all the prophets and teachers of the Old Testament. The whole Bible is a manifestation of Christ.

     The Scriptures are to be received as God’s Word (Voice) to us, not written merely, but spoken . . . . When the afflicted ones came to Christ, He beheld not only those who asked for help, but all who throughout the ages should come to Him in like need and with like faith. When He said to the paralytic, “Son, be of good cheer; thy sins be forgiven thee;” when He said to the woman of Capernaum, “Daughter, be of good comfort: thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace,” He spoke to every other afflicted, sin-burdened ones who should seek His help. Matthew 9:2; Luke 8:48.

     So with all the promises of God’s Word. In them He is speaking to us individually, speaking as directly as if we could listen to His Voice. It is in these promises that Christ communicates to us His grace* (G5485) and power. They are leaves from that Tree which is “for the healing of the nations.” Revelation 22:2.

     Please contact Isaiah Ministries if you would like to learn more of the power of God’s promises, or to speak to someone about scheduling a speaking engagement or seminar for your congregation.

May our Lord and Saviour bless and keep you !

The Mighty Power of God –

peter-john-and-lame-man-1426804-printWhy Not Now ?
BYJ.E.SWIFT

     THERE was a time when the servants of God had power with Him, and prevailed. In the first century, when the disciples of Jesus prayed, the earth trembled (Acts 4 : 31), and the Holy Spirit, like a flaming tongue of fire, rested upon them. Acts 2:3. When they preached a risen Saviour, men’s hard hearts melted, and they inquired, “Men and brethren, what shall we do ?” Acts 2:37.

     There was a time when those who were diseased sought unto the Mighty Healer, instead of sending for the vender of pills and powders; and when a humble fisherman could stand by the side of the lifeless form and say, “Tabitha, arise,” and the dead would live again. Acts 9:40.

     These things were common once; why not now ? Where does the Bible tell us that they must cease to be? —Nowhere.   On the contrary. Jesus tells us that “these signs shall follow them that believe.” He says, “In My name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; they shall take up* (loose the hold of) serpents; and if they shall drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them.” Mark 16:17-18.

     Again: “He that believeth on Me (the Word of God), the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do, because I go unto My Father . . . !”   John 14:12

     These promises are sure to them that believe. Brethren, the trouble with many of us is that we do not have faith. We ought to be thankful that God in his infinite mercy has bestowed upon us as a people some of the precious gifts of his Spirit; but He is willing to bestow upon us all the gifts of His Spirit just as soon as we place ourselves in a position where He can consistently do so.      Let us search our hearts in the light of His Word and the testimonies of His Spirit, and let us return unto God, and see if He will not return unto us. The work is fast closing up. Soon the night cometh, wherein no man can work. We mean to be whole-hearted sometime; why not now ?

The 10th Commandment ?

ten-commandments-childrenThe Tenth Commandment

     When you look at the Ten Commandments, they are pretty straight forward all the way through up to the last one. John was right when he said, “…His commandments are not grievous (too hard, too difficult, not a burden)” (1 John 5:3).

His Commandments are . . .
1 – Have no other gods
2 – Do not worship idols
3 – Do not take His name in vain
4 – Remember the Sabbath day to keep in holy,
5 – Honor your parents
6 – Do not kill (murder)
7 – Do not commit adultery
8 – Do not steal
9 – Do not lie
10 – Do not covet.

     Everything is fairly plain and simple until you get to the last one. The last one is very interesting. It says, “Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour’s” (Exodus 20:17). Think about that for a minute. To covet something is to want something you do not have. God had already said, in laws seven and eight, not to take your neighbors wife or anything that belongs to him. Now He says, don’t want (even desire) them . . . ? Continue reading

Now . . . learn the Truth, and take a look behind the scenes at the real spiritual influence and powers which are striving to change the gospel, and the faith once delivered unto the saints.

Blood on the Doorposts ?

9bb6cba8-6b14-4961-8eb6-c3f7e6247040     “The Israelites were required to sprinkle the door-posts with the blood of a slain lamb, in order that when the angel of death passed through the land, they might escape destruction. But if . . . instead of doing this simple act of faith and obedience, they had barricaded the door, and taken every precaution to keep the destroying angel out, their pains would have been in vain, and would have testified to their unbelief . . .

When the blood was seen upon the door-post, it was enough. The salvation (the deliverance, freedom, rescue, healing and restoration) of the house was assured. So it is in the work of Salvation; it is the blood of Jesus Christ that cleanseth from all sin . . . !

The LORD would have His people sound in the faith– not ignorant of the great Salvation (deliverance, rescue, freedom, healing and restoration) so abundantly provided for them . . . !

Subtle Seduction – Modern Miracles and an Ancient Illusion ?

     We thank you for your prayers and your support. For the LORD has blessed above and beyond all that we could have asked or even imagined. During our 3 week trip with Steps to Life of sharing the Glad Tidings of the freedom which has been given to every child of God, through faith in Jesus Christ, we have seen the LORD’s hand in mighty ways !

     We also thank the entire team of Steps to Life Australia for all that they did to make this series possible. For not only has the last days danger of spiritualism and Eastern mysticism been revealed to thousands of God’s children, but many more have for perhaps the first time taken hold of Christ and the victory and freedom which He lived, died and rose again to freely give to all who are willing to believe !

     This new 6 part series has been specially prepared for Eric and Sarah’s 2016 visit with Steps to Life of Australia. The series presented and filmed there in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane contains 80% new and updated materials not included in the original film sets from Little Light Studios and Amazing Discoveries.

     Part 4 greatly expands on the pagan roots of many of today’s holistic and alternative energy healing methods. Practices such as acupuncture, Reiki, kinesiology, iridology, Ayurveda, qigong and aromatherapy are examined closely, along with the history and spiritual background of their founders.

     It is our prayer that what you learn here will help to shed Light from God’s Word on many of the practices coming into the Christian church under the guise of alternative health and healing.

     Please contact Little Light Studios or Steps to Life Australia at the links below to order the full 6 part series on DVD, or to watch by digital download.

SERIES DESCRIPTION –

     Eric began training in the martial arts at the age of fourteen, just after his parent’s separation. Searching for meaning and purpose in his life, he began his journey on a path which promised assurance, confidence, and self-control.

     Over the next 24 years of training, Eric received black belt and instructor certification in seven styles of the combative arts. He was inducted into the USA Martial Arts Hall of Fame. With a background in natural and alternative medicine, Eric studied extensively in the field of energy healing. He was recognized as an instructor in the Chinese internal arts of Tai-chi Chuan, Bagua Zhang, Qi-gong and Traditional Chinese Medicine.

     The life he lived was to all appearances a success. but through the years involved in these Eastern mystical arts, Eric had become blind to the forces which had set themselves to destroy both himself, his wife Sarah, and their children. Their marriage crumbled . . .

     Then a miracle happened which would forever change their lives. After nearly five years of separation and divorce, the Lord Jesus Christ, in answer to the prayers of faith reunited Eric and Sarah in the covenant of marriage, restoring both their family and their home.
     Eric shares the miracle of how God opened his blind eyes, and delivered him from the powers of darkness. Today, Eric and Sarah’s lives are dedicated to sharing the Glad Tidings of the Salvation and freedom in Christ which we have each been given through faith in Him . . . Of His love and His power, and His great desire to set every captive free !
