Are You Paying Attention?

Remember the saying  (often attributed to Alexander Hamilton),If you don’t stand for something, you’ll fall for anything?”

No matter who really said it, IT’S TRUE!

As a Born Again Believer in Jesus Christ, a Child of God, I AM APPALLED WITH RIGHTEOUS INDIGNATION!

“An 11-year-old boy known as “Desmond Is Amazing” danced on stage at a New York gay bar while grown men tossed dollar bills at him.

“The pre-adolescent boy, dressed in drag to imitate singer Gwen Stefani, pranced around the stage at Brooklyn’s 3 Dollar Bill, an LGBT bar described as ‘queer owned & operated,’ and ‘Brooklyn’s Premiere Queer Bar & Performance Venue,’” LifeSiteNews reports.”

I can’t believe this actually happened in public and it was allowed!

This made me cry. I pray it breaks your heart too. It should break everyone’s heart.

God blessed me to sound the alarm about this situation before back in September.

THIS IS WRONG. I pray God convicts everyone to be able to feel and see the truth!

Sexual immorality knows no limits. Now children are being dragged into all of this. When there’s no line to cross, anything goes.

I beg you, Precious Human being soul who is reading this RIGHT NOW, Please seek your Creator because He has a real PLAN for your life!

God is heartbroken at all of this stuff. HE wants to give all of us human beings who are made in His image an abundant LIFE! See John 10!

All PEOPLE!

John 10:7-18 King James Version (KJV)

Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep.

All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them.

I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.

10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

11 I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.

12 But he that is an hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and fleeth: and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep.

13 The hireling fleeth, because he is an hireling, and careth not for the sheep.

14 I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine.

15 As the Father knoweth me, even so know I the Father: and I lay down my life for the sheep.

16 And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd.

17 Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again.

18 No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This commandment have I received of my Father.


Prophetic Word The Great Shaking Of 2019

There’s a shaking going on and coming about on the earth by The LORD GOD ALMIGHTY.

No room for LUKEWARM Christians. Like Brother Marcus Rogers says, Casual Christians will become casualties with what’s coming.

CHOOSE YOU THIS DAY who you will serve! If you aren’t serving God you are serving sin. Serving sin is bondage. You have to be loyal to nurse that addiction. There are strongholds and so much stuff that goes on. JESUS CAME TO SET YOU FREE!

Isaiah 61:1-3 King James Version (KJV)

The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me; because the Lord hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound;

To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn;

To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that he might be glorified.

 

JESUS DID IT FOR ME! HE CAN AND WILL DO IT FOR YOU TOO!

In 2018 I was delivered from multiple potent psychiatric medications!

This was all made possible through the inner healing of my soul which The LORD JESUS CHRIST paid for on the cross for ALL OF US! All the world! He wants us to tell everyone about this healing power so you can be healed as well and find freedom and rest for your soul! It’s hard to process the love of God when you are holding so much pain and trauma. He wants to heal that for you too.

Back to the issue at hand.

This is so disturbing and should be a SERIOUS wake up call to all Americans.

WARNING! God judges stuff like this! We can’t behave like this and expect to get away with it as a nation! There are consequences. You have been warned TODAY. I pray you seriously watch these videos and listen about the shaking of The Lord that is coming.

Look at what Jesus said in The Bible about the mistreatment of children!

Matthew 18:1-14 King James Version (KJV)

18 At the same time came the disciples unto Jesus, saying, Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?

And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them,

And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.

Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.

And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me.

But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.

Woe unto the world because of offences! for it must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh!

Wherefore if thy hand or thy foot offend thee, cut them off, and cast them from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life halt or maimed, rather than having two hands or two feet to be cast into everlasting fire.

And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life with one eye, rather than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire.

10 Take heed that ye despise not one of these little ones; for I say unto you, That in heaven their angels do always behold the face of my Father which is in heaven.

11 For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost.

12 How think ye? if a man have an hundred sheep, and one of them be gone astray, doth he not leave the ninety and nine, and goeth into the mountains, and seeketh that which is gone astray?

13 And if so be that he find it, verily I say unto you, he rejoiceth more of that sheep, than of the ninety and nine which went not astray.

14 Even so it is not the will of your Father which is in heaven, that one of these little ones should perish.

 

 

Ephesians 6:12 King James Version (KJV)

 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.

God wants to heal the broken hearts of all mankind.

 

 

This video is an example of this demonic agenda at work. Warning: Heavy language.

This is not normal. Satan is making a mockery of man who are made in the Image of God! This is why he hates us all so much as people, especially the men.

People do all this stuff in the name of freedom when they haven’t really tasted freedom at all yet. They are being used by the DEMONS. Jesus sets the captives FREE! ♥

Breaking Toxic Soul Ties and Alignments | Prophetic Vision of People Wrapped in ‘Past’

Published on Nov 2, 2017

In this teaching, Jennifer teaches how soul ties form, how they turn toxic and how to break them. You can find Jennifer’s ministry online at http://www.jenniferleclaire.org or sow into the ministry at Paypal.me/jenniferleclaire

More Information about soul ties from GreatBibleStudy.com

What a soul tie is

The Bible speaks of what is today known as soul ties. In the Bible, it doesn’t use the word soul tie, but it speaks of them when it talks about souls being knit together, becoming one flesh, etc. A soul tie can serve many functions, but in it’s simplest form, it ties two souls together in the spiritual realm. Soul ties between married couples draw them together like magnets, while soul ties between fornicators can draw a beaten and abused woman to the man which in the natural realm she would hate and run from, but instead she runs to him even though he doesn’t love her, and treats her like dirt. In the demonic world, unholy soul ties can serve as bridges between two people to pass demonic garbage through. I helped a young man not too long ago break free from downright awful visitations from demons, all due to an ungodly soul tie he had with a witch. The man was a Christian, and the only thing that allowed her to send demonic torment his way, is through the soul tie. Other soul ties can do things such as allow one person to manipulate and control another person, and the other person is unaware to what is going on or knows what is going on, but for no real reason, allows it to continue.

How soul ties are formed

I believe there are other ways which soul ties are formed, but here are some that I am aware of.

Sexual relations: Godly soul ties are formed when a couple are married (Ephesians 5:31, “For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh.”), and the Godly soul tie between a husband and the wife that God intended him to have is unbreakable by man (Mark 10:7-9). However, when a person has ungodly sexual relations with another person, an ungodly soul tie is then formed (1 Corinthians 6:16, “What? know ye not that he which is joined to an harlot is one body? for two, saith he, shall be one flesh.”). This soul tie fragments the soul, and is destructive. People who have many past relationships find it very difficult to ‘bond’ or be joined to anybody, because their soul is fragmented.

Close relationships: King David and Jonathan had a good soul tie as a result of a good friendship (1 Samuel 18:1, “And it came to pass, when he had made an end of speaking unto Saul, that the soul of Jonathan was knit with the soul of David, and Jonathan loved him as his own soul.”), but bad soul ties can form from bad relationships as well. Idolizing somebody can cause a bad soul tie.

I have heard too that you can create a soul tie with a rock group by becoming obsessed with their music. Which explains the strong pull towards certain music that seems almost irresistible.

Vows, commitments and agreements: Vows are known to bind the soul (Numbers 30:2), marriage itself consists of vows and binds the two people together (Ephesians 5:31), therefore I have little reason to overlook the concept of vows or commitments as being a means to create a soul tie.

How to break a soul tie

1. If any sins were committed to cause this soul tie, repent of them! Fornication is perhaps one of the most common ways to create nasty soul ties.

2. If gifts were given to you by the other person in connection with the sin or unholy relationship, such as rings, flowers, cards, bras, etc. I would get rid of them! Such things symbolize the ungodly relationship, and can hold a soul tie in place. If you are still friends or in a relationship (just now it’s no longer an ungodly relationship), like say a boyfriend/girlfriend relationship, except you’ve repented of and forsaken the unholy practices you used to do in your relationship, then I don’t feel it is necessary to destroy all the gifts and things that you have been given. I would still encourage you to get rid of anything that symbolizes the ungodly practices in the relationship though, such as if a guy gives a girl a bra and panties with his initials on them during fornication. I wouldn’t encourage you to hang on to such things that symbolize sin or that are wrong to give each other before marriage. Things such as flowers and love letters given during an adultery should be destroyed.

3. Any rash vows or commitments made that played a part in forming the soul tie should be renounced and repented of, and broken in Jesus’ name. Even things like “I will love you forever”, or “I could never love another man!” need to be renounced. They are spoken commitments that need to be undone verbally. As Proverbs 21:23 tells us, “Whoso keepeth his mouth and his tongue keepeth his soul from troubles.” The tongue has the ability to bring the soul great troubles and bondage.

4. Forgive that person if you have anything against them.

5. Renounce the soul tie. Do this verbally, and in Jesus’ name. Example, “In Jesus’ name, I now renounce any ungodly soul ties formed between myself and ______ as a result of _______________ (fornication, etc.).”

6. Break the soul tie in Jesus’ name! Do this verbally using your authority in Jesus. Example, “I now break and sever any ungodly soul ties formed between myself and _________ as a result of ______________ (fornication, etc.) in Jesus’ name.”

1 Kings 17 King James Version (KJV)

1 And Elijah the Tishbite, who was of the inhabitants of Gilead, said unto Ahab, As the Lord God of Israel liveth, before whom I stand, there shall not be dew nor rain these years, but according to my word.

And the word of the Lord came unto him, saying,

Get thee hence, and turn thee eastward, and hide thyself by the brook Cherith, that is before Jordan.

And it shall be, that thou shalt drink of the brook; and I have commanded the ravens to feed thee there.

So he went and did according unto the word of the Lord: for he went and dwelt by the brook Cherith, that is before Jordan.

And the ravens brought him bread and flesh in the morning, and bread and flesh in the evening; and he drank of the brook.

And it came to pass after a while, that the brook dried up, because there had been no rain in the land.

And the word of the Lord came unto him, saying,

Arise, get thee to Zarephath, which belongeth to Zidon, and dwell there: behold, I have commanded a widow woman there to sustain thee.

10 So he arose and went to Zarephath. And when he came to the gate of the city, behold, the widow woman was there gathering of sticks: and he called to her, and said, Fetch me, I pray thee, a little water in a vessel, that I may drink.

11 And as she was going to fetch it, he called to her, and said, Bring me, I pray thee, a morsel of bread in thine hand.

12 And she said, As the Lord thy God liveth, I have not a cake, but an handful of meal in a barrel, and a little oil in a cruse: and, behold, I am gathering two sticks, that I may go in and dress it for me and my son, that we may eat it, and die.

13 And Elijah said unto her, Fear not; go and do as thou hast said: but make me thereof a little cake first, and bring it unto me, and after make for thee and for thy son.

14 For thus saith the Lord God of Israel, The barrel of meal shall not waste, neither shall the cruse of oil fail, until the day that the Lord sendeth rain upon the earth.

15 And she went and did according to the saying of Elijah: and she, and he, and her house, did eat many days.

16 And the barrel of meal wasted not, neither did the cruse of oil fail, according to the word of the Lord, which he spake by Elijah.

17 And it came to pass after these things, that the son of the woman, the mistress of the house, fell sick; and his sickness was so sore, that there was no breath left in him.

18 And she said unto Elijah, What have I to do with thee, O thou man of God? art thou come unto me to call my sin to remembrance, and to slay my son?

19 And he said unto her, Give me thy son. And he took him out of her bosom, and carried him up into a loft, where he abode, and laid him upon his own bed.

20 And he cried unto the Lord, and said, O Lord my God, hast thou also brought evil upon the widow with whom I sojourn, by slaying her son?

21 And he stretched himself upon the child three times, and cried unto the Lord, and said, O Lord my God, I pray thee, let this child’s soul come into him again.

22 And the Lord heard the voice of Elijah; and the soul of the child came into him again, and he revived.

23 And Elijah took the child, and brought him down out of the chamber into the house, and delivered him unto his mother: and Elijah said, See, thy son liveth.

24 And the woman said to Elijah, Now by this I know that thou art a man of God, and that the word of the Lord in thy mouth is truth.

Psalm 42 King James Version (KJV)

42 As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God.

My soul thirsteth for God, for the living God: when shall I come and appear before God?

My tears have been my meat day and night, while they continually say unto me, Where is thy God?

When I remember these things, I pour out my soul in me: for I had gone with the multitude, I went with them to the house of God, with the voice of joy and praise, with a multitude that kept holyday.

Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted in me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him for the help of his countenance.

O my God, my soul is cast down within me: therefore will I remember thee from the land of Jordan, and of the Hermonites, from the hill Mizar.

Deep calleth unto deep at the noise of thy waterspouts: all thy waves and thy billows are gone over me.

Yet the Lord will command his lovingkindness in the day time, and in the night his song shall be with me, and my prayer unto the God of my life.

I will say unto God my rock, Why hast thou forgotten me? why go I mourning because of the oppression of the enemy?

10 As with a sword in my bones, mine enemies reproach me; while they say daily unto me, Where is thy God?

11 Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted within me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him, who is the health of my countenance, and my God.

Daily Devotional with Mr. Jeffrey A. Hale ♥

🎶The heart is a bloom
Shoots up through the stony ground
There’s no room
No space to rent in this town

You’re out of luck
And the reason that you had to care
The traffic is stuck
And you’re not moving anywhere

You thought you’d found a friend
To take you out of this place
Someone you could lend a hand
In return for grace

It’s a beautiful day
Sky falls, you feel like
It’s a beautiful day
Don’t let it get away🎶

The song “BEAUTIFUL DAY” is from the U2 Album ALL THAT YOU CAN’T LEAVE BEHIND (October 2000) it reached to No 1 in the UK singles chart and as far as 21 in the US singles chart. This song came out in the back drop to the Jubilee 2000 campaign that Bono was involved with. It was during the making of the “All you can’t leave behind” album that Bono, who was in the US and on a crusade, experiencing a surge of optimism sat down with arch conservative Congressman Jesse Helms in Washington. “Somehow the result of the important meeting was to hit an emotional nerve with the Congressman. The US got on board to the tune $435 million dollars in cancelled debts. Maybe the world wasn’t such a bad place after all. There was hope “It’s a beautiful day!” Edge reached for the Explorer, the Gibson guitar he’d used during U2’s formative years, and the sound was complete. It was a shimmering triumph in more ways than one.” The song is a cry from the heart to open up your eyes to those who need you, and stop denying that earth has become a broken mess by human greed and get busy doing something about the brokenness. Evidence of a broken world lies all around us. We are aware of it when we turn on the TV or read the news papers. We are assaulted by it from all directions. Reminded about the broken fragments of human life from dawn till dusk. If we are unlucky it even haunts our dreams. Contemporary life is filled with brokenness. In many neighbourhoods people don’t have to to go to far to touch the broken fragments of peoples lives. The song “Beautiful Day” reminds us of hope in the middle of the shards of broken lives. The song can be heard as a haunting prophetic voice that reminds us all of the person and the purpose of Yeshua/Jesus. “to seek and save the lost” The song provokes those who hear it towards hope. We are reminded of the hopeful message of Yeshua/Jesus to those who live life in the dirt or on the margins and at the same time the song rings out the challenging and disturbing message of our Messiah to those in power. Facebook friends,
hope, “Don’t let it get away” Just think what it would look like to live in a world of hope rather than a world of despair. “EVERYTHING IS POSSIBLE TO THOSE WHO BELIEVE” Get busy today and do something about the brokenness. Amen?

Daily Devotional with Mr. Jeffrey A. Hale 10.5.18 ♥

🎶It’s alright
There comes a time
Got no patience to search
For peace of mind
Layin’ low
Want to take it slow
No more hiding or
Disguising truths I’ve sold
Everyday it’s something
Hits me all so cold
Find me sittin’ by myself
No excuses, then I know🎶

This song came out in 1994, I was at the hight of my alcohol and drug use. “No Excuses” off of Alice In Chains album Jar of Flies was written by Jerry Cantrell for Layne Staley about his drug use. As I listened to this Alice In Chains song again today, I can see it being more universal than that. I think everyone has a time in their life that they just don’t have the motivation and patience to deal with others. Even family and friends. Depression and addiction is a B#tch. But if you tell people “I’m depressed” most won’t understand. They’ll take it as just an excuse to get out of doing something, or an excuse to isolate, or an excuse to get drunk and high. I think the lyrics definitely seem to fit Layne’s attitude towards the last years of his life. He knew he was depressed and a drug addict. He knew he was throwing his talent away. He didn’t want to lie and give some bullcrap excuse for his bad behavior. He, unlike most people in that position, was honest. There was “No Excuses”, so he didn’t give any. In many many ways I was just like Layne in my old life in this fallen world. The difference is I didn’t die in my depression and addiction. Today thanks to YeHoVaH/God, I’m sober, strong in my faith and even writing a book (hope to have it out soon friends) YeHoVaH/God is calling me to make an impact with my book and He has provided me the means to fulfill that calling. Even Moses didn’t feel he was qualified to do what YeHoVaH/God had called him to do. All Moses could see was his own unworthiness. To YeHoVaH/God there are “No Excuses” for not fulfilling the calling that He has put on our lives. When He calls us we can say, “I’m not ready, I’m not worthy, I can’t do it, and so on. But listen, there are “No Excuses” that matter to YeHoVaH/God. When He gives us a calling in our lives, He already has a plan for us to fulfill that calling. The only thing that holds us back is US! Facebook friends, if your fighting addiction, depression, illness or a whole host of reasons your not fulfilling your calling and making an impact. Please remember, if you have given your heart to YeHoVaH/God through Yeshua/Jesus, there are “No Excuses.” You have been given everything you need to make an impact. All you have to do is step out in faith and do it. Have you given your heart to YeHoVaH/God through Yeshua/Jesus ? Have you accepted Him as you savior and accepted His forgiveness of your sins? If the answer is yes, then make an impact for the Kingdom. If your answer is no, then give Him your heart today and join those who are making a positive impact on our world. Amen?

Daily Devotional with Mr. Jeffrey A. Hale 1.12.18 ♥

I received an email today from a friend in Iowa. He is a “New Believer.” It reads,”I would like to help others, but knowing what to say and how to say it stops me in my tracks.” So friends, how do share your simple faith without making people run and hide from you? I replied to him with one of my favorite quotes “You are what you do….Not what you say you will do.” People can spot a phony from a mile away. The absolute worst thing you can do is say one thing and do another. If you aren’t committed to applying the principles of Yeshua in your own life, you will not only be ineffective, but will be seen as insincere and phony. Most people aren’t as interested in what you say, as they are in seeing how it’s working in your life. I remember before he passed away, Johnny Cash did a stripped down version of “Personal Jesus” on his 2002 album American IV, The Man Comes Around. Martin Gore, the singer of Depeche Mode, revealed to The London Times that the band were unaware that Cash had covered this song. When they heard about the country legend’s recording, the threesome were naturally thrilled. Said Gore, “I think when you’re somebody of Johnny Cash’s caliber, you don’t ask for permission.” Cash explained why he chose to cover this song (as quoted in Mojo October 2013) “I heard that as a gospel song. And if you think of it as a gospel song, it works really well. We didn’t have any major disagreement over that song, I just heard that a couple of people had recorded it, the writer wanted me to try it, and I did, and I loved it. And I went for it.” This was inspired by Priscilla Presley’s book Elvis And Me, where she described their relationship. Martin Gore of Depeche Mode said, “It’s a song about being a Jesus for somebody else, An Example, someone to give you hope and care. It’s about how Elvis was her man and her mentor and how often that happens in love relationships, how everybody’s heart has a compassionate and caring side to it that is a supreme example to others. In my Bible reading today I found Yeshua washing his disciples feet in John 13:1-15. Yeshua shows them how to be an example how to be a “Personal Jesus” to each other. There’s nothing worse than somebody trying to preach to you about something going on in your life when all you can think about is finding a way to fix it. At that moment, the last thing you want to see is somebody carrying a Bible, acting like they know exactly what you need and how you feel. And truth be told, when they ask you to read from their Bible, you’re thinking you’d rather hit them over the head with it! This is the very scenario that makes the concept of sharing your faith so intimidating. Most people would like to help others, but knowing what to say and how to say it stops you in your tracks. So how do share your simple faith without making people run and hide from you? Facebook friends, the best way to share your faith is to be an example. People will want to know how you can be peaceful in the storm, why your kids are doing so well, why your marriage is so great, and how you know for sure about your purpose in life. And when they ask, you’ll have all kinds of great stuff to share. Being a “Personal Jesus” to some one else is what He was doing at the supper table with his disciples. Being an example is perhaps the most important thing you will do in life. Amen? https://youtu.be/jQcNiD0Z3MU
