Have you had a heart change? 01/27 by RevEssie | Spirituality Podcasts

Have you had a heart change? 01/27 by RevEssie | Spirituality Podcasts: Following Jesus Christ is not just lip-service, there has to be a heart change. God knows the 'real' you. What is done in the dark will certainly come out in the light.

Support is important

Years ago, when I was a rookie in the ministry field, my family came to listen to me preach one Sunday. My sisters husband, who was a wise and happy older man, told me afterwards at his home, "Esta!" (Esther) "You can preach, I gotta give that to you." And he went on to say, which was the absolute truth, "But you just don't have no suppote!" (Support. He had a gentle Southern accent.) And you want to know something? For years I didn't have support from hardly anyone, maybe a $20 bill here and there or $50 three times a year or so. But recently, now that I have my stuff together and I am sure, satisfied, experienced and on fire for the Lord's work, I now have support. Once you know that you know that you know that what you are doing is for the Kingdom and not YOU, God steps in and blesses the entire ministry. It took me years of mistakes and experience, joy and tears to get this far. By God's Grace and Mercy, I now have those who enjoy what I do and they tell me every day. And don't get me wrong, there are always those who don't enjoy what you do and will let you know it too! But I was called for such a time as this and I am going to ride this thing until the wheels fall off. And no, I am not one of those screaming, big word-using, jumping up and down preachers so if you are looking for that....can't do. I am not an actor, I preach the unadulterated Word of God. I preach it in a way that, people from any generation can understand. I once had an elderly gentleman come up to me after I preached in a big church from my hometown, and he said, "Now Rev. I liked that. You preach so 'us dummies' can understand it" and he laughed and walked away with his wife. I'll never forget that. He has since passed, bless his soul, but he put a wonderful seed in me that day. (Mr. Alton, I'll never forget you.) Don't ever forget the good times and keen signs that God has shown you throughout the years. Write them upon the tablets of your heart. 
For you people who have been stepping in to help the ministry, thank you. It means more than I can type on this Blog. God bless your household 100 fold. May He give you 'more-than-enough'....always. So much that your will have to give some away. 

Thanks for reading and have a successful day!

Living off of a 'donation-less' ministry.

New Birth Ministries
A testimony of the provision of the Most High:
Many may not know this, if any, but, I have what I call "a sort of-donation-less ministry." I don't get much in the area of finance, maybe $100/year if that. I am not one of those preachers with the expensive car, attache case and tailor-made clothes. Strangely, that is what is exciting about New Birth Ministries. God provides. And yes, NBM/NBBI is registered legally with the State of Pennsylvania as a 501(c)(3) Charitable Organization. I sometimes put out the call for an offering or a donation but not much as I don't like begging ministries. And NBM doesn't depend on tithing to 'make it'. We don't get tithes, never did. If handled wrongly they turn people away from Jesus. If people ever tithed, it was between them and our Father. Begging makes people feel that they have to 'pay' for their 'healing' or blessing.
As a "money-less" or should I say, "a nearly donation-less ministry" NBM has had a brick and mortar church which flooded in 2004...twice, Hurricane Ivan and the one that followed that January, therefore I took the ministry online with Various Prayer Groups, Various Prayer Lines/Calls, a You Tube Channel, and a current and successful Sunday - Church Online Radio Show.
Talking about Jehovah Jireh! God sees to it that I get whatever He wants me to have to keep this ministry going. He pays the internet, rent, paper, printer, ink, envelopes, stamps, phone lines, gas, electric, water, car, sewage and insurances+.
The secret to it all is to learn to live low and watch God work in your life. Fast much and live comfortably. I've been fasting this year from something that once had a stronghold on me for years, and the more I fast, the stronger God's power and discernment becomes in me and I absolutely love it.
Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting. (Matthew 17:21)
Romans 12:2
2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
Trust in the Lord for everything. If your flesh cries, tell it to shut up and repeat, "With God ALL things are possible." Our flesh is a big crybaby anyway, when it gets what it wants it steals your joy. If God can trust you in the "little bit" He can surely trust you in "a lot." When it is time for you to sit at the "Table" Jesus will pull out the chair for you. One day, in His time, your little bit will become a lot. And yes, there will be those who will come to you trying to rush you into doing things that God has not called you to do. Don't be hard on yourself, don't be embarrassed of the 'work' of the Lord. Wait on the Lord. They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength. God will strengthen you. Jehovah Jireh, my Provider Your Grace is sufficient for me. God doesn't want man to boast over what they have done for me. God has smiled on me, still is, and that's my ministry testimony. God bless. ~ Rev Esther R. Scott

full-fledged | ˈfoo͝ l ˈˌflejd |
adjectivecompletely developed or established; of full status: coldlike symptoms that never quite develop into full-fledged colds.
Have you ever had a problem fully letting go and giving it all to God? Sometimes don't you feel as though you're asking him for too much? Guess what? God doesn’t mind! He loves it whenever you talk to him. Talk to Him on the job, in the park, in the restaurant, or in your car. If God said that he sent the Holy Spirit inside of you then why wouldn't the Holy Spirit want to hold a conversation with you? Humans made up miming God doesn’t mime! Some of you may get upset with me when I say this but Apostles must correct the church and real ones aren’t very well celebrated, anyway. The Apostle Paul didn’t have a committee to take money out of the advertising department and announce his coming in the local newspaper or billboards so.... here goes..... I am not and never have been crazy about miming! Do I hear crickets out there? Here’s some information about miming that God had already showed me years ago but I just didn’t say anything then:Many churches believe mime is a form of worship. However, many churches have adopted the practice of mime without examining the origins of its true purpose or meaning.Miming is pantomime. Pantomime is a dramatic form of entertainment, originating in Roman, in which performers express meaning through gestures accompanied by music.
It began in the theater of Dionysus in Athens. Masked actors performed outdoors, in daylight, at festivals in honor of Dionysus, the god of theater. Mime contains acts of magic, sex, and simulated nudity. It was a vulgar and a sexually perverse form of entertainment, shunned by the Christian
Church. After the fall of the Roman Empire, the Christian Church showed great opposition to the bawdy, and indecent associations of Mime, and excommunicated all performers, and closed down all the theaters. Despite this, the basic form of Mime survived. As the Church began to adopt societies code of morality, plays began to appear with religious themes, many performed in mime. (G.C. Lewis TTBHH5)
This genre was very diverse but full of controversy. Most often they were indecent burlesques unto the god Dionysus in which female performers also took part in sexual performances. They featured dialogue, acrobatics, songs, and slapstick routines. During the persecution of the Christian
under Nero and Domitian, mimes were used to ridicule the Christian faith on stage. They mock the Christian faith and their God.
It is recorded in Acts 17:22-31 Dionysus was the god who inspired joyful worship, ecstasy and festivals. At these festivals and celebrations mimes, actors and a myriad of entertainment filled the theaters. On the north side of the hill is where Apostle Paul preached the gospel on Mars Hill. Paul was vexed at the sight of false idols and pagan worship that went on in the temple theatre. “Then Paul stood in the midst of Mars’ hill, and said, Ye men of Athens, I perceive that in all things ye are too superstitious. For as I passed by, and beheld your devotions, I found an altar with this inscription, TOTHE UNKNOWN GOD Whom therefore ye ignorantlyworship, him declare I unto you.[ Moffet T.]
Here are some links for your research. mime-out-of-the-church miming.htmlNotice in Psalm 37:3 that it tells us to trust in the Lord and do good and then we will do well in the land and shall be fed. There are so many who do not trust the Lord and they just will not do good. Some act like they don’t have ‘doing good’ in their veins! Oppositional Defiance Syndrome causes a person to do the exact opposite of what they are supposed to do and that is not good for their soul. It’s just like the devil, they want to do their own thing instead of what would profit them and cause them victory and success. It is simple, in Psalm 37:3, that trusting in the Lord causes you to do good. Get it? TRUST IS GOOD. If things do not turn out well for some people and for some it seems like a lot of times, it could possiblymean that you are not fully trusting in the Lord. Let go and let God. Have what we call “stupid Faith.” Pardon my expression. There are some people who ask for prayer over and over so much so that they don't realize that they are letting people know that their faith is waxing and waning, and they do not have full 100% faith in the works of Our Lord God, no matter how “Christian” they proclaim to be. Have you ever seen people who never seem to have a good day, and when they ‘allegedly’ do it almost seems fake? It almost seems as though they are saying it just so people won't catch on that they never really have a good day. A lot of these people are also the type who love attention. They will do anything to cause all eyes to be upon them instead of upon Jesus Christ. Watch out for the Drama Kings and Queens! True dat! Learn to get Victory in Jesus Christ already! Amen? No one will want to be on your side if they never ever see you getting victory in any area of your life. That’s just common sense. It's like getting in a fast car with a man who has no sight.The second half of the verse says and thou shell dwell in the land and be fed. What land? The land of the spiritual and natural living, the land of the successful, the land of Abundance and prosperity, the land of believers. Some say “I do trust God but...” and then they finish the sentence with something such as “I have a lot of questions.” I feel this way, if you believe God you will take out your time and ask him your questions and wait on his answers! God is not a Genie though, ok? And God does not pop up out of lamps, that’s Disney, and God wants to hear from you.There are people who travel far ways and pay vacation money to get to a prophetess or a prophet. They say “Prophet so and so is coming to town are you going?” And what they don't realize is God is in them they don't need to hear a word from anybody else. Someone once told me that i was going to get a tall, fine, man and when I meet him I will know him by his eyes. I haven’t found a man with special eyes yet and that’s been about 20 years ago! If people would just sit down and study their Bible, study the word, they will find out everything that they need to know to go about their day and to be successful and happy.God does not play games, either you believe inhim or you don't. He has enough enemies and he doesn't want us on the enemy’s side as well. As human beings we always want to be like doubting Thomas. We always want to see something first before we put on total belief into it. That is not how I operate. God rewards those who diligently seek him. That does not include those who ‘half the time’ seek him. There are those who seek God only when they are sick. I once knew a man once told me that he doesn't like to bother God, he only goes to God when he is sick. That broke my heart that he doesn't trust God in any other aspect of his life. He had a $220,000 home, Bocchi court and all, and only contacted God when he or his parents were ill. And meanwhile his entire life was crumbling down around him. His parents got sick, he almost lost his house, he was supposed to get married and the woman that he was going to marry left him amongst other things.God wants us to have a total trust in him whether things are going good or whether things are going bad - God wants us to trusthim. We get on a bus and travel back and forth to our destination and we trust the driver, we also trust the mechanics of the bus. We get in our cars and turn on the air-conditioning and the radio and we trust the brakes and the mechanics of the vehicle there as well amen? The bus and the car is made by imperfect man. I tell my kids all the time when they are driving, “remember, a human made that car, be careful!” Some people trust man-made things more than God.Here's a better one for you: people buy groceries and food at restaurants and they immediately pop the food into their mouths orinto their Skillets and cook the food. That's trust don't you think? They don’t know where the hands of the handlers of that food has been. You see it online all the time where rats and human fingers are found in pickle jars, rats and mice droppings and urine are found on the top of soda cans in factories. Rats and roaches run through rice bails and restaurants. I knew a man that ran a pizza shop who had the best pizza in town but my family found a slight discrepancy. My kids friended the kids who lived above the pizza shop. One night they were playing outside of the shop with the kids who lived there and saw a surprising sight. The Pizza owner simply left his flour on the floor in the hallway and outside on the dirty porch until he was ready for a new one. I saw it myself! No bucket, no container, nothing.The 50 pound flour sacks just laid there until he was ready for more. Get this.....a few neighbors cut open the huge flour bags to steal some when the ran out, and the flour bags just stayed opened until the owner walked out to get some more. BUT!!!! His pizza was voted the best in our town! For years! See? An inside job (renters) revealed his fault. Everybody kept asking what his secret was but he’d never tell it. I know....It was probably rat hairs! When he finally sold the shop years later, I heard that he also had to sell the recipe for his pizza. I know the recipe! ...... A Broom and some Bleach!!! But! Still, we cannot trust God because he may not handle a situation correctly? I digress.....Here's an even better one for you. You work for 2 weeks for your boss just knowing somehow that he is going to pay you after all that work you’ve done. What if he changes his mind? But yet we don't trust God?You trust the babysitter and the teachers with your children but you don't have time to learn more about God? People say I don't believe in that God stuff or that Jesus stuff. When the airplane runs into turbulence what is the first thing that they say? “Oh my God!” No! Wait a minute! “WHO’S God? You mean MY God?”Nowadays people are trusting their children with people who have inordinate affections but they don't trust God. Psalm 37:5 is telling us to commit our way to the Lord and trust him and he will bring it to pass. That means that he will bring into your life those things that you need to exist comfortably. God wants us lying naked in front of him, hiding nothing. If Jesus came to your house right now while you are listening to this, (or reading this later on,) would there be anything there that would make you ashamed or embarrassed? Song 118 Verse 8 tells us it is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man. Some trust in chariots and some in horses but we shall believe in the Lord our God. What about this scripture: As for me and my house we will serve the Lord.Trust God even in financial matters. People are so worried about money. Here’s a kicker for you. Jesus never said money was the devil. He was more concerned about us serving two masters at the same time. The Bible says the love of money is the root of all evil, not money.When Jesus said you cannot serve two masters at one time He was speaking about loyalty. Where is your loyalty? Do you have loyalty in man and his inventions or is your loyalty in God the creator of all things? Have you ever seen people who are not loyal whatsoever? They are more loyal to the enemy than they are to their own loved ones.And a man's foes shall be they of his own household. (Matthew 10:36)
Years ago I was watching the Oprah show and she had a doctor from the Veterans Hospital in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania on her show. The doctor was talking about people who are addicted to Crack Cocaine, Methamphetamine, Crystal Meth and other drugs like it. This doctor went on to show us how the brain works. She had a picture of two brains on a screen for the audience to see. One brain was colored nicely and it looks healthy but you could plainly see a decrepit and discolored part in the second brain. The doctor went on to tell us that-was the part that the crack cocaine and the crystal meth affected whichwas the loyalty part of the human brain. People wonder why their boyfriends or their girlfriends don't buy Pampers or beds for their babies? You wonder why your loved one goes to the bar after they get paid and spend the entire check only to come home that Monday morning to take a shower and go back to work. There is something that has happened in their system that stops them from being loyal and to doing that which is good and right. You wonder why your loved one spends all of their money on Crown Royal at parties and they get mad at you when you ask for the bill money? They tell you “All you talk about is bills!” They say that you are a drag and a party pooper and after a while you just may begin to wonder if it's true. You have become a product of their disloyalty. And now you must work on freeing yourself from this devil that has taken over your loved one....and free them too! In Jesus name. Never stop praying for people. People who experience these situations must be delivered of the symptoms of something new that is attempting to degrade their lives and steal their joy. We go through all of this and we stillhave a problem with God.Proverbs 3:5 tells us to trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not unto your own understanding in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your path many people are wise in their own eyes, therefore they feel that they don't need God all of the time. They sit Him upon their shelves until needed and the first time that fear comes upon them, (which the devil knows would bother them) then all of a sudden they need God. Fear brings on a lot of stresses. You've heard it, faith is the absence of fear and fear is the absence of Faith, you choose. As Jesus said, “You cannot serve two Masters.”Isaiah 26 verse 4 it tells us to trust in the Lord forever, for in the Lord Jehovah is Everlasting strength do we want temporal - temporary strength or do we want strength forever? I want strength for an eternity! No more timidity! Let's go to the rock of our Salvation, let's go to the Stone which the builders rejected, let's go to the Mountain and the Mountain will stand byus. As you notice it mentions Jehovah which is where we get the word Yahweh, the tetragrammaton before vowels were made, God's name was YHVH pronounced Yod-He- Vau-He, spoken in a slight whisper. So looking at it in Isaiah 26 verse 4 would actually be YHVH.And lastly Isaiah 50 verse 10 who was among you that fears the Lord, that obeys the voice of his servant, that walks in darkness and has no light, let him trust in the name of the Lord and stay upon his God. When someone mentions the term “fearing the Lord” it is not a cowering down but a respect for the creator of all things, the creator ...... of the universe. You-He-Vau- He. Your Creator.Are you walking in the light? Are you saved? CALL TO REPENTANCE.*end

Thankfulness (1450-1457 TCR)
November 25, 2009 

What is thankfulness?  To appreciate and express gratitude toward someone or something.  A consciousness of a benefit received.  Let’s explore some of God’s wonderful scripture that will give us a better understanding of thankfulness: 

1.   Deu 8:10  When thou hast eaten and art full, then thou shalt bless the LORD thy God for the good land which he hath given thee. 

a.  Thankfulness requires the return of a blessing to the one that blessed you. 
b.  It is an all around good feeling about something that has happened in your 
    life, something given you or something achieved. 

2.   Psa 100:4  Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name. 

a.  We are to enter into the gates of God’s physical or spiritual dwelling, not with 
    regretfulness or bitterness but with thanksgiving, knowing that if it weren’t for 
    Him allowing us to wake up and breathe one more day, we would not be able. 
b.  We are to enter with praise.  God dwells in the praises of His people. 
c.  We are told to be thankful to God and bless His name.You either bless or curse 
1.  Who’s side are you on? 

3.   Psa 107:22  And let them sacrifice the sacrifices of thanksgiving, and declare his works with rejoicing. 

a.  What could possibly be the ‘ sacrifice of thanksgiving?’ What does it mean to 

4.   Col 1:12  Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: 

a.  What do you think the scripture means by “saints in light?’ and, are you one? 
b.  Who is “the Father?”  God is a ______God.  The Father is part of the t_____     called the Holy T------ or G------.  We must believe this for there IS another          Jesus. 

5.   Col 3:15  And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful. 

a.  We are called into one body with one head, the Godhead.  (Three in one.)  Two 
      heads make a monster.  One Lord, one Faith, one baptism. 
6.   1Th 5:18  In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. 
a.  This means thanking God for the good, the bad and the ugly.  (Experiences.)

"fly by" relationships with God

There are many who experience such limited time with God, yet they wonder why their prayers aren’t being heard. I call these, “fly-by relationships” or “catch me if you can” relationships. They speed past that shut-in time with God as though they were on the run and He is supposed to reach out and catch them in their ignorance towards Him. He can you know? You’d be surprised what God can do to get our attention. Sometimes His ways may not seem so sweet or funny, so let’s stay on His good side.
Is your relationship a ‘fly by’ one with the Most High? How many times a day do you speak to your Creator and tell Him not only about all of your troubles but tell Him how much you love Him and adore Him? God loves to hear from us! Don’t allow negative people, (even some relatives and so-called friends,) to tell you that your prayers aren’t being heard because God has “more important things to do.” That is a lie of the enemy and he is hoping that you fall for it and keep your mouth shut and not praise and worship God OR ask for help now and then. God dwells in the praises of His people. Praise Him at all times. I will bless the Lord at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth. (Psalm 34:1)
No two humans are the same, God made it that way. No two voices are the same. When each of God’s zillions of people speak to Him, He hears our voice and recognizes it. When your children call you on the phone you recognize their voice right? Or you husband, wife, sibling or friend. That is how God recognizes you as well. He absolutely loves to hear from you. He knows that you’ve sinned and done some things wrong. That’s why He sent Jesus to become sin so that you can be covered by His Work on the Cross. This is exactly why no one can get into Heaven unless he or she has accepted Jesus Christ as their Savior because He S A V E D us from sin, Hell and death by offering Himself as the Highest Ever Sacrifice. If He didn’t we’d never get into Heaven. Works without Faith is dead as well as Faith without Works. Your beautiful, “I think I’m a nice person” works will NOT get you into Heaven. It’s Jesus the Christ or blackness with weeping and wailing. I’ve had people tell me that they don’t believe in “that Jesus stuff.” They say that they love God but they are calling God a liar by saying that there is no son named Yeshua HaMaschiach (His Hebrew name of various spellings throughout the years) or, Jesus the Christ. And no, “Christ” is not His last name. It’s His title.
God is not into the Fly-by relationship thing. One morning you say, “Hello and thank you for today Lord” and the next morning you are grumpy and say nothing neither do you thank Him for waking you up again. He really didn’t have to you know. We have to check our own motives and attitudes on a daily basis. Can you imagine what the disciples went through while they were walking with Jesus? They were in “check myself” bootcamp. Well, Peter had a way to go I presume, but he was there. The cursing (his mouth) and the way he let satan use him to speak to Jesus via doubt. Not to mention ‘Doubting Thomas’ who had to see the wounds in Jesus’ hands before he believed that he and risen. And wait a minute! Didn’t Jesus already tell them that He was coming back? Sooooo, Jesus lied then? Ok Thomas. Great mentee. Anywhooo…. And yes, there were women there as well so we can’t use the old, “menstruation” excuse. I am sure that they didn’t bite Jesus’ head off during “that” time of the month or cry for chocolate, amen? Because you had a bad night doesn’t mean that God doesn’t want to hear from you. Because you had a headache, physical problems or nightmares, doesn’t mean that God doesn’t still deserve praise and worship. Get this…humans are sometimey, God is all-the-timey. If some of us would just stop and let His Peace enter our hearts, we’d forget the headaches and heartaches or bad dreams. So many of us are trying to remember the dreams that we forget to talk to God in the morning. I used to  be so busy in the morning trying to remember my dreams so that I can write them down. I do believe in writing them down, they could be your next direction from the Lord, but my fellowship (actually my “thank you session”) with God comes first. If there is anything that He wants me to remember about the dream(s), (and sometimes it can be His direction as well,) He will cause me to remember it when I am through thanking and praising Him and praying.
Some people are so busy trying to be first on the internet, ie., Facebook that you wonder if they spent any time with the Lord at all that morning. It’s like people roll over, grab their phones and log on to Facebook. Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love. (Revelation 2:4) Everyone is trying to out-post others or see who has the most manly, pretty or hottest post. It’s a shame to watch. Some are early risers but you sometimes get that feeling as though they hadn’t even prayed or washed before posting. The internet has become a circus. There is so much competition and ‘nothingness’ going on that you can get lost in it. Not to mention that Facebook already admitted that they were experimenting on us at various times to ‘see how we handle things,’ That’s ludicrous. And Christians are literally falling for it hook, line and sinker. They won’t speak to their neighbor or give someone a ride to the store but they want to be first to post online each day. God showed me where even saying, “Good Morning” too much online can become a trap and take us away from our focus. I used to do it like clockwork, especially for my ministry page, until I began to see how it can become a god, (little ‘g’) to us. You spend more time doing great “Good Mornings” than you do in prayer. I had some people get upset with me because I didn’t say “Good Morning” to them in time. I still do them though, once in a while but not daily. Oh yes, I love encouraging and uplifting people but it’s no longer a “has to be” or “needed” exercise for me each a.m.. Now, God has freed me to the point where sometimes I do, sometimes I don’t. Ahhhh, Freedom, it’s feels so good. And I no longer jump up in the wee hours of the morning to get online. Yes, I’ve learned to rest. The World doesn’t need me but one thing I do know….I NEED God. The World lives on without my Good Mornings. Not only that, I post other content throughout the day but it’s all after I spend time with God. When your ministry become a job, it’s no longer a gift to the Most High. He took us out of slavery and doesn’t want us to voluntarily go back in. Amen?
Let’s get our emotions and motives in check, put them under our feet where they belong and serve the Lord with all Joy and gladness. Many people can’t get God’s work done or help someone else because of their emotions. They’re too emotional to let the truth of a matter take precedence. Emotions are fly-by as well, aren’t they? Let’s stop flying by the Lord and start stopping in and chatting with Him a while. Provoke others to do so as well. Be a good example of a believer.
Have a great night and a peaceful, wonderful tomorrow.

“Today the subject is Confess the Word of God (Jesus) and live free.
Is God’s Word the final authority in your life? Is your faith rooted and grounded on God’s Word? Or are you one of those who seem to think that the Word of God is not enough leaving you to search for another so-called, “spiritual authority” which is not a real spiritual authority at all, but a poser?

Let’s turn to today’s main scripture which is     

Matthew 11:7-12
7  And as they departed, Jesus began to say unto the multitudes concerning John, What went ye out into the wilderness to see? A reed shaken with the wind?
8  But what went ye out for to see? A man clothed in soft raiment? behold, they that wear soft clothing are in kings' houses.
9  But what went ye out for to see? A prophet? yea, I say unto you, and more than a prophet.
10  For this is he, of whom it is written, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee.
11  Verily I say unto you, Among them that are born of women there hath not risen a greater than John the Baptist: notwithstanding he that is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he.
12  And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force.

Proverbs 16:29-30
29  A violent man enticeth his neighbour, and leadeth him into the way that is not good.
30  He shutteth his eyes to devise froward things: moving his lips he bringeth evil to pass.

VIOLENT PEOPLE DO WHAT THEY HAVE TO DO, WHY CAN’T CHRISTIANS DO THE SAME? So many followers of Jesus Christ are so prone to depression and giving up at times, that we, like Elijah, would rather ask to die than to stand up to the enemy and fight the good fight. Elijah had eradicated the land of all of it’s false prophets but when the Wicked Jezebel threatened his life, he got depressed and asked God to kill him. My message to you today is “DON’T GIVE UP!” 

The “violence” in the Matthew 11 reading, that the Lord said the kingdom had suffered since John’s day, was the violent resistance that the unbelieving leaders in Israel waged against the proclamation of the kingdom gospel. These violent rulers made several attempts on the Lord’s life as He preached the kingdom of heaven (Luke 4:29; John 5:18; John 7:1,19,25; 8:37,40; 10:31). As the Lord went on to explain, these violent attempts on His life were attempts to take possession of the kingdom by force.
The Lord illustrated all this with the parable of the “householder” who represented God (Matt. 21:33), “which planted a vineyard” that represented Israel in the Old Testament (Matt. 21:33 cf. Isa. 5:1,2,7). God “hedged” or “fenced” Israel (Matt. 21:33 cf. Isa. 5:2) with an invisible wall of protection from her enemies, but also “digged a winepress” (Isa. 5:2 cf. Matt. 21:33), which indicated He expected to reap a harvest of grapes from his vineyard to press into wine in return for His efforts. But the “servants” that God sent Israel to gather these fruits, the Old Testament prophets, were violently persecuted (Matt. 21:35,36). Last of all, He sent them His Son (Heb. 1:1,2), but when Israel’s leaders “saw the son, they said among themselves, This is the heir; come, let us kill Him; and let us seize on His inheritance” (Matt. 21:38), His inheritance being Israel (Isa. 19:25).
Spiritual success all depends on how you think, how strong your faith in God is, how much you love Him and how you use His Word against the wiles of the enemy. We should love the Lord so much that we wouldn’t question His Word and Authority even if we don’t understand it. Walking in complete Faith leaves no room for doubt. Just like the law that says that no 2 objects can occupy the same space at the same time: dark and light, oil and water, and, faith and doubt cannot either. Either you believe the Lord your Creator or you don’t. We are at war, there is a heavy and horrible spiritual battle going on and there is no demilitarized zone. The only peace that you can get is the peace of Jesus Christ. 

So many of us have it backward. We yell at God, thinking that we have a right to, and we let the devil get away with murder, sometimes out of ignorance, rebellion, or just plain old fear. We watch too much tv and we are looking for that shadow in the corner with a long tail so that we can rebuke it and send it to dry places - when all along it could be your boss, children, wife, husband, parent, neighbor, old friend or fellow church member. Somewhere, someone is going to rattle your cage. Some purposefully do it and some unknowingly do it and some just like being manipulative to see how many people they can allegedly command. These are power hungry fools. How do you handle your opposers? Do you let them get away with intimidating you or do you speak, not YOUR mind, but the mind of Christ? Using God’s Word, we can be free to correct someone or something rightfully, but always be careful of the words that you speak to others no matter what the situation is, or calls for. You are a creator just like your father. If someone close to you aggravates you, the way that you answer them can cause good or bad results. The last thing that you want to do is to be responsible for the suicide of a weak person who just happened to be in a bad mood, or like Elijah, depressed at the time. What you want to do is to speak wisely to them, not taking their insults personally but allowing the devil to know that you know who he is and rebuking him like Jesus did Peter in Matt 16:23, Mark 8:33, and Luke 4:8. In doing so, you just could lead that person to salvation. Once they see you handling the situation properly, and if they don’t get offended easily, they just may want to be like you in handling those types of situations, and accept Jesus as their savior as well if they aren’t saved. Plant the seeds and the Spirit of God will cause them to grow. The Holy Spirit doesn’t break toes, He just steps on them a little, once in a while.  

What we should really do in life is to shout at the devil who tries to take over our minds, our thoughts and sometimes causes us to speak death into situations instead of life. Be violent with the one who is violent with you, amen? satan is not playing tiddly-winks here. Have you ever stated something so negatively that you had to check your own statement and attitude? That was the swaying of your hater, taking over your thoughts and making you speak something that Jesus wouldn’t approve of. When these things happen, we need to stop, drop and roll. Stop the negativity and redirect your mouth and thoughts, drop the attitude that made you say what you did and roll on with what God would have you to say to enlighten the mind of the other party instead of leading them to stress which could lead to sickness and possibly death one day. Then, their death would be on your hands so to speak. I wonder how many have passed this life early because of negative Atom-bombs being dropped upon them mostly throughout their lives?

Did you ever have someone yell at you and down you so horribly that you began to literally get a headache and not feel so well? What is happening is that, their negative energy is pouring out upon you and draining you of your joy and peace. You can  literally hear nothing good about yourself coming out of their mouth as though their mouth was a septic system or something. Sometimes someone can download on you, or, as some say, “drop a load” on you so harshly that it can lead you to sickness. Then you are wondering why you are not sleeping well, your stomach always hurts, or you have bags under your eyes and your energy is drained. 

Those are the times that you need to speak up what the Word of God says. “I Am a Child of the Most High God, the Father and I are one.” “I Am not what you say that I am.” “I am sorry if I ever offended you but I refuse to allow you to make me your punching bag.” Some people get so good at spewing negativity that they begin to practice it as much as they can. Making others look or feel bad - makes them feel better about themselves. Everything is your fault, it is certainly not theirs. It becomes a nasty habit and you are watching them walk down a narrow, deep and dark path that will hinder their walk with the Lord one day. It’s called “Vanity.” Listen to what vanity means: 1 excessive pride in or admiration of one's own appearance OR achievements: 2 the quality of being worthless or futile: They begin to use it as a defense mechanism. Instead of forgiving others as Jesus told us to do, they down others to make themselves feel better. They begin to enjoy their alleged ‘manipulation’. After a while, they begin to feel as though they went to a Spa, jumped in a Jacuzzi and soaked a while. It becomes a cool, (or should I say ‘icy’ dip) in an Epsom Salt bath, or a bandaid for them. “Well…I guess I told THEM! They’ll think twice before messing with ME again.” they say proudly. The devil is using the situation against them but they think that it is healing to curse someone out and kill the joy of others. That’s not the ways of Jesus, folks. 

God’s Word has the healing properties that we need. Study it daily, it relieves the stresses of life. The Hebrew word for God’s Word is “Siyach” which means to ponder, converse with oneself and, utter aloud. Do you know what this means? DON’T BE AFRAID TO UTTER ALOUD! If someone is listening, they just may get healed. Don’t worry about who is listening just know that God hears you, that’s all that matters. Amen? Obviously the enemy coined the phrase, “Talking to yourself is crazy.”  I “utter” all of the time. The best thing to utter is God’s Word! You’ll get your best answers from Him! It is the way that He loves to communicate to you via His Holy Spirit. You read and the Spirit will translate to the Spirit in you.  God is the final authority in my life! Who is yours?

Let’s take a look at some scripture about the Word shall we?

Psalm 1:2-3
2  But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.
3  And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.

Psalm 119:15-16
15  I will meditate in thy precepts, and have respect unto thy ways.

16  The law and the prophets were until John: since that time the kingdom of God is preached, and every man presseth into it.

1 Timothy 4:15-16
15  Meditate upon these things; give thyself wholly to them; that thy profiting may appear to all.
16  Take heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrine; continue in them: for in doing this thou shalt both save thyself, and them that hear thee.

Deuteronomy 31:19
19  Now therefore write ye this song for you, and teach it the children of Israel: put it in their mouths, that this song may be a witness for me against the children of Israel.

Extra scriptures:

Psalm 17:0-4
Psalm 17
1  Hear the right, O Lord, attend unto my cry, give ear unto my prayer, that goeth not out of feigned lips.
2  Let my sentence come forth from thy presence; let thine eyes behold the things that are equal.
3  Thou hast proved mine heart; thou hast visited me in the night; thou hast tried me, and shalt find nothing; I am purposed that my mouth shall not transgress.
4  Concerning the works of men, by the word of thy lips I have kept me from the paths of the destroyer.

Proverbs 30:5-7
5  Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him.
6  Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar.
7  Two things have I required of thee; deny me them not before I die:

Deuteronomy 6:6-19
6  And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart:
7  And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.
8  And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thine hand, and they shall be as frontlets between thine eyes.
9  And thou shalt write them upon the posts of thy house, and on thy gates.
10  And it shall be, when the Lord thy God shall have brought thee into the land which he sware unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give thee great and goodly cities, which thou buildedst not,
11  And houses full of all good things, which thou filledst not, and wells digged, which thou diggedst not, vineyards and olive trees, which thou plantedst not; when thou shalt have eaten and be full;
12  Then beware lest thou forget the Lord, which brought thee forth out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage.
13  Thou shalt fear the Lord thy God, and serve him, and shalt swear by his name.
14  Ye shall not go after other gods, of the gods of the people which are round about you;
15  (For the Lord thy God is a jealous God among you) lest the anger of the Lord thy God be kindled against thee, and destroy thee from off the face of the earth.
16  Ye shall not tempt the Lord your God, as ye tempted him in Massah.
17  Ye shall diligently keep the commandments of the Lord your God, and his testimonies, and his statutes, which he hath commanded thee.
18  And thou shalt do that which is right and good in the sight of the Lord: that it may be well with thee, and that thou mayest go in and possess the good land which the Lord sware unto thy fathers,
19  To cast out all thine enemies from before thee, as the Lord hath spoken.

Deuteronomy 11:20-23
20  And thou shalt write them upon the door posts of thine house, and upon thy gates:
21  That your days may be multiplied, and the days of your children, in the land which the Lord sware unto your fathers to give them, as the days of heaven upon the earth.
22  For if ye shall diligently keep all these commandments which I command you, to do them, to love the Lord your God, to walk in all his ways, and to cleave unto him;
23  Then will the Lord drive out all these nations from before you, and ye shall possess greater nations and mightier than yourselves.

Deliverance through the Word:

Psalm 107:20-22
20  He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions.
21  Oh that men would praise the Lord for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!
22  And let them sacrifice the sacrifices of thanksgiving, and declare his works with rejoicing.


John 8:31-32
31  Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed;
32  And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

Psalm 119:45-50
45  And I will walk at liberty: for I seek thy precepts.
46  I will speak of thy testimonies also before kings, and will not be ashamed.
47  And I will delight myself in thy commandments, which I have loved.
48  My hands also will I lift up unto thy commandments, which I have loved; and I will meditate in thy statutes.
49  ZAIN.Remember the word unto thy servant, upon which thou hast caused me to hope.
50  This is my comfort in my affliction: for thy word hath quickened me.

Proverbs 6:20-23
20  My son, keep thy father's commandment, and forsake not the law of thy mother:
21  Bind them continually upon thine heart, and tie them about thy neck.
22  When thou goest, it shall lead thee; when thou sleepest, it shall keep thee; and when thou awakest, it shall talk with thee.
23  For the commandment is a lamp; and the law is light; and reproofs of instruction are the way of life:

1 Samuel 3:9-11
9  Therefore Eli said unto Samuel, Go, lie down: and it shall be, if he call thee, that thou shalt say, Speak, Lord; for thy servant heareth. So Samuel went and lay down in his place.
10  And the Lord came, and stood, and called as at other times, Samuel, Samuel. Then Samuel answered, Speak; for thy servant heareth.
11  And the Lord said to Samuel, Behold, I will do a thing in Israel, at which both the ears of every one that heareth it shall tingle.

4. There are 4 keys in applying the Word: 
a. Put the Word in your heart 
b. Meditate on the Word 
c. Confess the Word.
d. Be a doer of the Word. 
And learn to let go of traditions. Traditions are the main causes of some who may not get into Heaven. They treasure man’s word over God’s Word:
Matthew 15
1  Then came to Jesus scribes and Pharisees, which were of Jerusalem, saying,
2  Why do thy disciples transgress the tradition of the elders? for they wash not their hands when they eat bread.
3  But he answered and said unto them, Why do ye also transgress the commandment of God by your tradition?

Here are some enemies against applying the Word;

1. 2 JOHN 2: 15-16 
a. Lust of the flesh 
b. Lust of the eyes 
c. The pride of life 
2. Lust of the eyes
a. Samson's downfall 
1. Judges 16:1, 4 
b. Davids's downfall 
1. 2 Sam 11 
3. Lust of the flesh 
a. Balaam the prophet
1. Numbers 22:17, 37 Balaam had a desire for fame and fortune. 
4. Pride of life
a. Saul's downfall
1. 1Sam 15:17 “…when thou wast little in thine own sight….”
2. Saul grew prideful to do what he wanted to do. 

The Word is a weapon! The Word is YOUR weapon! USE IT! 
Eph 6:17

Ephesians 6:17
17  And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:

Learn to use the Word correctly. Learn who to yell at and who NOT to yell at, amen? Are you saved?
