Deception.

Poem “Deception” written

By Bishop Dr. FS Bhatti

Purpose of Delilah

Blinding and deceiving

Purpose of world

Greening garden and deceiving

Purpose of Jacob

Receiving but deceiving

Purpose of Jezebel

Believing but deceiving

Purpose of Robber on Cross

Believing but receiving

Purpose of Prince of peace

Seeding but bleeding

Critical Summary of Poem “Deception”

• It is famous story of Old Testament “Samson and Delilah” How she did come purposely to “Samson” to deceive and she blinded his eyes for anger of his mother and king.

• The world shows green garden first of all but inwardly deceive.

• Jacob, Brother of Esau, Isaac loved Esau but his mother loved Jacob, she prepared him to deceive his father and his brother Esau to get the blessing of his father Isaac.

• Jezebel spirit is in Revelation of St. John in New Testament, spiritual polluted women who believes but deceives like Ahab’s of old testament had same belief

• Along with Jesus there was two more person on the cross, both were robbers and murderers, one of Robber accepted Jesus Christ as King by believing and receiving paradise by faith on the cross at that moment.

• Prince of peace, Lord of Lords and King of Kings is the title of Lord Jesus Christ who came according to the prophesies of prophets into this world for sinner and wrecked lives. In His holy love sow seeding righteousness in this world but he was crossed for not mixing up with world under the world’ control system. He did sow seeds of righteous, liberty, love, forgiveness. But he himself is blooded on the cross without any sin and mistakes for human.

I praise God for our Bother Farhad.

Please keep our persecuted Family in the east in prayer.

Remember The Faithfulness Of God in all of the previous “Red Seas” He’s parted in your life with His Great Mercy.

Glory to God for this revelation/reminder today! The people, variables, and circumstances may be different in every storm and season we go through, but God is consistent in His Sovereignty. God’s Favor and Faithfulness remain the same no matter what we are dealing with. Just as He provided for us in all the other seasons of life, He will do it again.

Praise God! I know that’s what I needed to hear today. The Holy Spirit is speaking. Are we listening?

God was with David as he took on the lion and the bear in The Bible. His Faithfulness was no different with Goliath. God is The same. He is steady. Your Heavenly Father is the only certainty you can count on down here under the sun.

The world is thirsty for new life and revival.

People are hurting and they need hope.

If you know Yeshua/Jesus, do not hesitate to share Him with the world! They need that Light!

There is a Kingdom of darkness on this earth under the rule of Satan, but don’t think for one minute that God cannot shake everything up in the blink of an eye! God OWNS all this.

Satan may be the prince of this world but God OWNS this world and everything else!

God will FIGHT for you and plead your cause if you just LET Him.

The only way to be Truly happy and at peace in this life (and the only way to Eternal life and to escape eternal damnation) is to surrender everything to Jesus Christ. To know Him is life and peace here and in the hereafter.

Cry out now. Help is only one prayer away.

You do not have to go to a church building to get help. Fellowship of Believers is vital and important, but we must all have our OWN personal relationship with God through His Only Begotten Son, The Lord Jesus Christ.

You are not over and no matter how dark it seems, know that with God ALL things are possible! ❤️

Daily Devotional with Mr. Jeffrey A. Hale 6.22.18 ♥

I absolutely love riding motorcycles. I remember a few years back a friend from work stopped by on his bike and wanted to go for a cruise. The first and only words he said before we departed on our afternoon journey was “Drive fast!” He took off speeding through the city streets and out into the country about 10 minutes ahead of me! Everyone who knows me, knows I’m not a “speed demon”. A while later, I finally caught up with him and he asked me, “Do you know where we are going?” I answered, “No, but I’m driving as fast as I can, you never told me where we are going, just DRIVE FAST🙄.” That’s a perfect picture of our modern society. We’re all so busy racing through life that we so often forget the reason, meaning, purpose, and why of what we’re doing. Is that you? Do you find yourself driven through life, driving fast, but you’re not really getting anywhere? The first thing you need to do is stop. Take time to be still with YeHoVaH/God. Ask Him if this is what you’re supposed to be doing with your life. He might tell you, “No,” or, “Yes, but you’re doing it all wrong.” Be open to change. Instead of living a life that’s driven, live a life that’s Spirit led. As it’s written, you shall go out with joy and be led forth with peace. Needless to say we never rode together again. I enjoy a relaxing peaceful country side ride. Facebook friends, this weekend take time to smell the roses and spend time with YeHoVaH/God and ask Him to direct your steps according to His plan. Amen? **Do not attempt the actions in this video, these are untrained unprofessionals** https://youtu.be/cMVLxQ53Vgw

PRAISE Report for The Glory of God!!! ♥ †

Good morning, WordPress readers and the whole world!
Glory to God! I have a praise report to share with all of you!
That’s why we are here! To LOVE Him, to KNOW Him and bring Him GLORY!
 
I am blown away at the Nature and Character of my Creator…and how I encounter Him every day!
I praise HIM for supernatural healing and our relationship.
I never thought I would ever experience GOD like this!
I truly taste the Mercy and Grace of God every day and in this season of healing especially.
I have never been so ALIVE!
 
John 10:10 King James Version (KJV)
 
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.”
 
IMG_8835.JPG
 
There’s this lyric that someone special shared with me, it goes like “Because of You, I desire reality.”
Well…these days, my reality is like a fantasy… I feel like I am dreaming all of the time. I am soooo happy.
Praise THE LORD!
IMG_8614.JPG
 
The Lord is truly nigh to the broken-hearted and saves those that are crushed in spirit. I love feeling His Fire all over me. He embraces me so tenderly!
The LORD sets us FREE!
Psalm 34:18-20 Amplified Bible (AMP)
 
18 “The Lord is near to the heartbroken
And He saves those who are crushed in spirit (contrite in heart, truly sorry for their sin).
19 Many hardships and perplexing circumstances confront the righteous,
But the Lord rescues him from them all.
20 He keeps all his bones;
Not one of them is broken.”
 
2 Corinthians 3:17 Amplified Bible (AMP)
17 “Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty [emancipation from bondage, true freedom].”
 
 
 
2018 has been, is currently, and will continue to be the greatest year (so far) f change for me in my life. It was prophesied to me over Facebook through an obedient servant of The Lord! Like night and day, brunette vs. blonde, The Lord, my God has transformed EVERYTHING in me and my life. It’s an ongoing process, just saying that He’s on the move and not leaving any stones unturned.
Makeover.Headshot.png
Yesterday I came to my Papa in tears and bore my soul before Him. He watched me hurting.
Psalm 30:11-12 Amplified Bible (AMP)
 
11 “You have turned my mourning into dancing for me;
You have taken off my sackcloth and clothed me with joy,
12 That my soul may sing praise to You and not be silent.
O Lord my God, I will give thanks to You forever.”
 
 
The timing of the answered prayer is the kicker for me.
A prayer was answered yesterday that I have waited on for a while. On the SAME DAY….
He loves to show off in all of HIS Majesty!!!
He TRULY is MERCIFUL. He KNOWS!
Yeshua understands all about our broken hearts and souls… He caught all of my tears. He cherishes all of our tears! He is my BEST Friend and I love Him soooo much!
 
 
Psalm 56:8 Amplified Bible (AMP)
 
8 “You have taken account of my wanderings;
Put my tears in Your bottle.
Are they not recorded in Your book?
Not one of them is broken.”
 
 
It’s all because HE IS SOOOO GOOD! God loves ALL of His Children! He LOVES the whole world! HE TRULY fights for us! He will never leave us nor forsake us! My life is a testimony of this verse as well. How GREAT is our GOD!!!
Thanks to all of my friends/family that have been praying for me. You guys are amazing! Praise The LORD for all of you!
 
I am FREE INDEED!!! So are you!!!
 
John 8:36 King James Version (KJV)
 
36 “If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.”
 
 
 
“Free Indeed” by JJ Heller with lyrics
 
[Verse 1]
On the days, when I’m stuck​ in the mud
When I don’t, feel worthy of love
With the weight, of the world on my back
I’m never alone, remind me of that
 
[Chorus 1]
I am wild as a wave crashing into the sea
I’m coming alive with each breath that I breathe
I believe, I am free
I am free indeed
 
[Verse 2]
I work hard, but the harder I try
I only fall, farther behind
I’m done with the game, I’ve kicked of my shoes
With you by my side, how can I lose?
 
[Chorus 1]
I am wild as a wave crashing into the sea
I’m coming alive with each breath that I breathe
I believe, I am free
I am free indeed
 
[Bridge]
If You have set me free
Then I am free indeed
If You have set me free
Then I am free indeed
 
[Chorus 2]
I am wild as a wave crashing into the sea
I’m coming alive with each breath that I breathe
I believe, I am free
I am wild as a wave crashing into the sea
I’m coming alive with each breath that I breathe
I believe, I am free
I am free indeed
 
[Outro]
I am free indeed…

Daily Devotional with Mr. Jeffrey A. Hale

🎶If I could hold your hand one more time

And hear your lullabies just like before

I know that I did wrong, so I’m singing you this song

Mother, I won’t see you anymore. Son, I wish you knew how much we’re missin’ you

I saw them cry their tears from up above

I try to tell them, but the words aren’t getting through

I didn’t mean to hurt the ones I love. Mother, father, I hope to see you soon

And things will be just like they were before

I’m sending all my love, I’m watching from above

And I’ll be in their hearts forever more🎶

When this song came out in 1991 by “The Scream” it really hit home. I lost my best friend at age 19. It’s been nearly 27 years since he passed. I often wonder what kind of family he would have had. I think about all the good things which life has to offer that he got cheated out of. There are many situations in life which can cause a person to feel overwhelmed to the point of wanting to commit suicide (the death of a loved one, being arrested and imprisoned, a spouse leaving, getting caught doing wrong, peer pressure, teenage pressures) In the Bible, in Judas’ case it was guilt, his evil was exposed and he was overwhelmed with guilt. Judas could have been forgiven, but he instead foolishly hung himself. There is always a right way and a wrong way to deal with anything. Just lay everything out on the table before YeHoVaH/God in prayer. He promises to forgive you and to help you get your life together. You don’t need to feel overwhelmed with sorrow and fear, just beg Him to forgive you and then you do everything in your power to make things right. If there’s nothing you can do about it or it is too late, then you must put the situation into His hands and free your mind of something you cannot change. Forget the past, it is gone forever. Don’t worry about the future, it may not be yours. Rather, lay up for yourself treasures for the new heaven and earth by living for Yeshua/Jesus and the gospel’s sake. You don’t have to kill yourself. You can have “a life” in Yeshua/Jesus (John 10:9-10). Some of you know I suffer in physical pain everyday from problems in my back, knees and wrists. Not a day has passed since 2004 that I don’t have aching constant toothache like pain. Facebook friends, I have never thought of killing myself. Suicide is not the best way to make the pain go away. Life is full of problems, emotions, miseries and frustrations. Life can be better friends, but the first step is to never give up on yourself! Trust me, time does heal ALL wounds. I know from experience. If you’re at the end of your rope, then get a longer rope. If you’ve received the straw that breaks the camel’s back, then get a stronger camel. Don’t quit! Don’t give up! You can make it! Suicide not an option. No one should ever even talk about something so foolish as killing one’s self. I hope these few words have encouraged someone today. I’m always willing to listen and pray for you.

Glory to God! Praise Report 7.13.18 ♥† ♥

Glory to God!!! This morning The Lord woke me up to Psalm 103 on my phone via Audio Bible. It was so special. I started praying and smiling immediately. He is sooo good.

Yeshua made sure that I did not miss my doctor’s appointment this morning. He’s so gentle. I am so blessed. I got there for this check-up and Doc said I lost 51lbs since January! I am sooo alive! HalleluJ-H! There’s a new song in my soul and I praise Him for it! God really does make ALL things new.

God can take the darkest places in your life and the heaviest of hurts in your heart and Breathe New Life into the depths of your soul! I praise Him for LIFE! I praise Him for HOPE and for WHO HE IS!

I am super Blessed and very happy to share this Praise Report with you all today. I pray this edifies everyone to know that God is The God of The living and not the dead. We should Bless His Holy Name Everyday that we have Breath and Praise Him! He is AWESOME!!! 🙂

Matthew 22:32-34 King James Version (KJV)
32 I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob? God is not the God of the dead, but of the living.
33 And when the multitude heard this, they were astonished at his doctrine.
34 But when the Pharisees had heard that he had put the Sadducees to silence, they were gathered together.

Psalm 103:1-4 King James Version (KJV)
1 Bless the Lord, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name.
2 Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits:
3 Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases;
4 Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies;

With God I Can

tyLordJESUS

Romans 8:14-18 KJV

14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.

15 For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.

16 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:

17 And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.

18 For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.

 

Praise God for The Holy Spirit reminding me tonight that I need not feel condemned and guilty for lack of servitude. There is great need and opportunity in my very path to serve and to help others, but I am not doing so.  I was reminded tonight that I cannot do it of my own strength. Thank you Jesus! I need to ask God to change me from the inside out and make me able to serve. You see, in listening to the enemy (the accuser of the Brethren), when pointing out my shortcomings I became very depressed. I went to sleep confounded without words.

After I got up, the sweet Spirit of God reminded me of this truth: Father God will finish what he began in me by Himself. He doesn’t need my help. I need His. I cannot change things myself by my own strength. It begins with my personal well-being. The devil has been attacking my entire daily life. I have been going around in a negative circle.  My body clock is off with poor sleep. I am napping around the clock without an actual nightly sleep cycle. Because I am exhausted, I am not exercising, not to mention the poor diet. I am not equipped for the job without my Heavenly Father doing the work in me necessary.  I may be weary and worn but I know that God can turn all of this around. So I give it to Him.

Not by might, but by His Spirit.

I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.”   Philippians 4:13

Personal Journey

I Should Not Be Surprised.

Sitting here alone tonight and it’s almost 2 a.m. There’s so much going on in my life right now, so many things on my mind. I see the whole world gone mad and increasing rapidly day by day. So I guess you could say it’s like this great whirlwind of heartache and chaos from beneath my very own roof extending all throughout this world. Today I took an extra nap. I admit I’ve been feeling defeated with all of these problems and people that I cannot control nor fix. But then it dawned on me tonight…

I’m still in His hands. My God, my Father reminded me of how my 14 year old Chihuahua’s health has perked up and how she has come so far in but a couple of months. It was revealed to me by Him of just how far she had come and how bad her pain was. I recalled crying in my husband’s arms a couple of months ago when it looked like there was no hope at all. My baby was walking around with her tiny frame all contorted and whimpering along. I just knew she’d have to be put to sleep, forever… But we took her to the vet to get checked out. The X-ray showed that her spine was bent in the middle (the arch of her back) and the cartilages between the disks had worn so thin at the top. He didn’t mention putting her to sleep and I held my breath.

That day my husband, my mom and I returned home with some pain medication and antibiotic for her stomach and diarrhea episodes. We’ve went back a time or two for refills on the pain meds. She still requires maintenance but looks normal now. Sort of thin. There are days when she needs her meds…but my oh my, My God breathed on my dog, my baby!!!  And some days, she runs like a puppy. I can hardly keep up when I try and meet her at the mailbox! I know she is still elderly at 14 yrs old. If the Rapture of The Church doesn’t happen first, I will experience her loss. But not like I would have. I truly believe she will be in Heaven forever with me.

I now see that I have taken this all for granted. This MIRACLE! Of course The Lord knew all about our special bond and how she’s been there all along. Since before my Bipolar diagnosis and through the loss of my dad she has always been there. Sitting here tonight in the quiet gave me the ability to really think. The Lord reminded me that if He could do such a great thing for my  tiny dog, Little Bit, how much more great things could He do in the rest of my life. I was discounting Him. The Creator of The Universe. I am learning to walk by faith and not by sight.  All for His glory. God is love itself. God is compassion. All good things come from above.

I am so grateful for the hundreds of people that cared enough to respond in prayer during that time for me. PRAYER is so powerful. It is so important. It’s so awesome that The Lord has brought me into networks with all sorts of Brothers & Sisters in Christ. In these dark times we really need one another to keep that fire going. I just wanted to share this with everyone in hope that it blesses you and may bring encouragement to a hurting soul.

If you do not know the Lord Jesus Christ, He is only a prayer away! Find love beyond measure, peace that surpasses understanding, and the comfort of The Holy Spirit today! Don’t put it off. We never know what day may be our last.

Revelation 3:20  King James Version (KJV)

20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.

 

besaved

Romans 10:9-13 King James Version (KJV)

That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

11 For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.

12 For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.

13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

Strangers in a Foreign Land

Oh, how the sunshine falls on the trees…

The beautiful songs the birds do sing…

A cloudless, blue sky above me…

Today I was free.

In a world where faith is hard to find,

And hearts so disconnected from the mind…

In whom does all their trust rely?

I woke up at the end of time.

Intentions, inventions, all the plans that I had…

Body soon immortal and I’ll be reunited with my dad.

Jesus will dry our tears, forever happy, no more sad.

Everyone matters where all is love, nothing bad.

How does God feel when He looks down below?

Share Jesus now so they can’t say they didn’t know.

This show’s about over and we’re almost home.

No more strangers in a foreign land, we’re out of here, Shalom!

The Secret & The Universe…and God

Remember a decade or so ago when the world was introduced to The Secret? Of course it wasn’t really a secret. The Law of Attraction has been around for a very long time. I believe author Rhonda Byrne just had a new way of presenting it, full of mystery and intrigue. The movie/video was very well done. To have quantum physicists and great philosophers at the same time backing the blowing concept that we can create our own destiny and get what we want…was just awesome. So awesome that in fact,

This book is rated 3.9 out of 5 stars on Amazon and is the #1 Bestseller in the New Thought category.

The description of The Secret book as seen on Amazon:

Fragments of a Great Secret have been found in the oral traditions, in literature, in religions and philosophies throughout the centuries. For the first time, all the pieces of The Secret come together in an incredible revelation that will be life-transforming for all who experience it.

In this book, you’ll learn how to use The Secret in every aspect of your life — money, health, relationships, happiness, and in every interaction you have in the world. You’ll begin to understand the hidden, untapped power that’s within you, and this revelation can bring joy to every aspect of your life.

The Secret contains wisdom from modern-day teachers — men and women who have used it to achieve health, wealth, and happiness. By applying the knowledge of The Secret, they bring to light compelling stories of eradicating disease, acquiring massive wealth, overcoming obstacles, and achieving what many would regard as impossible.

OFFICIAL Website of The Secret.

In the same category on Amazon is the book:

Moving Through Parallel Worlds To Achieve Your Dreams: The Epic Guide To Unlimited Power

A portion of its Amazon description: “This is one of the most powerful books you shall ever read. With research from quantum physics, psychology, biology and behavioral epigenetics, as well as many great spiritual teachings, ‘Moving Through Parallel Worlds’ will guide you on a path to achieving your grandest ambitions. The title, ‘Moving Through Parallel Worlds To Achieve Your Dreams,’ is literal – based on the ‘Many-Worlds Interpretation of Quantum Mechanics,’ and it is also a metaphor suggesting positive life transformation. This very night, you shall be reading and then applying the concepts in this book, and that moment will be the starting point of your mastery of wealth, romance, creation, and mastery of all things in the physical world.”

I picked this title out randomly to share alongside The Secret. The 2 books are similar, so they’re in the same category.

When The Secret made its debut around a decade ago, I was in college. Impressionable, eager to find love, success and all of the worldly possessions a woman could want. I had just broken up with my boyfriend and longest relationship, so my ears were itching for something like this. The idea that I could manipulate my life and control my personal success and HAPPINESS…was thrilling. I read the book, bought the DVD, made the ‘Vision Board’ the whole 9 yards. I was certain I could have anything I wanted at all because I was in the know! I had found the secret!

So… Why am I sharing this post?

I’m sharing the truth. Truth is…there is NO secret. Perhaps some of the things within the book are true, but certainly not as a whole.

I have grown and changed tremendously as an individual these past ten years. Hindsight is 20/20. Now I see that I clearly took the bait. This whole secret thing is not from God, nor does it have anything to do with Him. The word “god” is a broad term in today’s world. This way anything goes and everyone gets what they want. In the case of The Secret, perhaps I should say, the Universe…

This book says there are no rules according to the universe .. you provide the feelings of having it now and the universe will respond…if you turn it over to the universe, you will be surprised and dazzled by what is delivered .. this is where magic and miracles happen…Create a Vision Board .. pictures of what you want to attract .. every day look at it and get into the feeling state of already having acquired these wants.

‘Nuff said.

This book is not for Christians. It’s the New Age movement…the lie from the pits of Hell and the devil himself (like in the Garden of Eden) that we can be like God or as gods. We cannot have any other “gods”…I just thought I’d put this out there.

God bless everyone, and as Jesus said, “Be not deceived.”

Jesus Christ is the one and only way to God the Father and to Heaven. In fact, He’s coming soon. Bible prophecy is falling off the pages going full speed ahead. Most are asleep to what’s really going on. The One World Government/New World Order is ready to go, just not implemented yet. Ever wonder why those jets are spraying chemicals way up high in the sky on fair, sunny days? Everything we know now must be brought down for the powers that be to have their way with a one world currency etc. Economic collapse is inevitable. If you are left behind or reading this after millions of people have disappeared, Don’t take the chip!!! The Mark of the Beast (looks like it may be the RFID implant under the skin) which will be put in the right hand or the forehead, will make you hell bound. Even if you have it removed. Read Revelation Chapter 13 in the Bible. You will read about the Antichrist and False Prophet. I encourage you to seek out the King James Bible. If you don’t have one, you can read it online at any of these links.

End Time Headlines

Seek Jesus today. No one is promised another breath at any moment. And it’s about to really become a nasty nightmare down here on earth. Jesus is coming for those that are His, for The Tribulation is about to begin any moment now. The Son of God will be returning for the faithful One’s that belong to Him as His Church is not appointed to Wrath. Please look into things for yourself today. I pray you will.
