Heaven Is Our Destination Where We Will Be ONE With The Lord Forever

Today, we are in The Season Of The Last Generation. The Birth Pains that Christ Jesus spoke about are currently under way, including natural and unnatural disasters. They will be ever increasing. Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold. Social, economic and political turmoil will be ever increasing, causing people's hearts to be weighed down with dissipation, drunkenness and the anxieties of life. An apostasy within the Church of God is currently under way. This will all reach a climax with Satan revealing his Antichrist and requiring that everyone worship him; That every one receive his "mark" in order to buy or sell; The new currency of the New World Order, the New Tower of Babel.

Today, it is critical that those who have a heart for God are aware of what God is doing and speaking today. God is opening up His Word like never before in preparation for The Time Of The END. I exhort you to open up your heart and your eyes to see what He is doing and your ears to hear what God is speaking at this time. My prayer is that we will be able to stand before the Son of Man at His appearing, without fault and with great joy. I encourage you to read David Wilkerson's book, America's Last Call at davidwilkersontoday.blogspot.com. Also, Google, Tommy Hicks Prophecy, 1961 for a view of the End Times.

Freedom In Christ Alone

How beautiful is the freedom found in Christ alone

So pure and clean like a mountain stream

My life has been atoned

Jesus, Your my freedom, Your the Spirit inside of me

Jesus, Your my freedom, You set my heart to be free

The beauty and grace found in Your face

Is more than I can take in

Jesus, Your my freedom, Your the Spirit inside of me

Jesus, Your my freedom, You set my heart to be free

Christ Is King

O, the pathetic machinations of the nations,
Their political intrigues that are all for nothing.
The armies of the nations are like bunch of women before the Lord
One word from Him and they are swept away, howling and groveling.
Their rockets and bombs are like a child's pop-gun before the Lord;
Their deluded intellects, like those who have lost their minds.

They refuse to acknowledge
That God has already installed His King, Christ Jesus, on His Holy Hill, Zion.
Suddenly, in a moment of time, Christ will come
And dash them to pieces like pottery, and rule them with an iron scepter.

The nations are Christ haters, they are antichrist; among them:
There is not one righteous, not even one
There is not one who understands, no one who seeks God.
All have turned away, they have together become worthless;
There is not one who does good, not even one.
Their throats are open graves; their tongues practice deceit.
The poison of vipers is on their lips.
Their mouths are full of cursing and bitterness.
Their feet are swift to shed blood; ruin and misery mark their ways,
And the way of peace they do not know.
There is no fear of God before their eyes. (Romans 3:9-18)

The only exception to this
Are those who have been crucified with Christ to this world
And no longer live but it is Christ who lives in them. (Galatians 2:20)

There, the stage is set for the last act.
The story has already been written; it is all in The Book.
Soon, the King will come and fulfill His Word to the last detail.

Save yourself from this corrupt generation. (Acts 2:40)

Israel The Greatest Of The Nations

God Almighty will soon make Israel the greatest of the nations.
He has promised to do so and His promise cannot be reversed.
He promised this through Jeremiah the prophet, hundreds of years ago.
He has returned Israel to their home land as He promised;
An occurrence unheard of in the history of mankind.

God Almighty watches over Israel like a Shepherd.
All who touch her will be destroyed.

This is not because Israel is more virtuous than any other nation.
It is solely based on God's promise to the Patriarchs of Israel;
Beginning with His promise to Abraham.
What God promises is as good as accomplished.

Today, God Almighty, through His Word,
Has place two immovable stones in the path of the nations;
Stones that cannot be moved.
He has reconstituted the nation Israel as promised,
And He has place His Christ, Jesus, as King and Lord of all,
On Zion, His holy hill;
His Christ, Jesus, who will establish His Kingdom in Jerusalem
For the thousand years of the soon coming Millennium.

This is what the Lord says: 'Sing with joy for Jacob;
Shout for the greatest of the nations.
Make your praises heard, and say,
'O Lord, save your people, the remnant of Israel.'
See, I will bring them from the land of the north
And gather them from the ends of the earth .
Among them will be the blind and lame,
Expectant mothers and women in labor;
A great throng will return.
They will come with weeping;
They will pray as I bring them back.
I will lead them beside streams of water
On a level path where they will not stumble,
Because I am Israel's Father,
And Ephraim is my firstborn son.

Hear the Word of the Lord, O nations;
Proclaim it in distant cost lands:
He who scattered Israel will gather them
And will watch over His flock like a shepherd.
For the Lord will ransom Jacob
And redeem them from the hand of those stronger than they.

They will come and shout for joy on the heights of Zion;
They will rejoice in the bounty of the Lord--
The grain, the new wine and the oil,
The young of the flocks and herds.
They will be like a well-watered garden,
And they will sorrow no more. (Jeremiah 31:7-12 NIV)

The American People Are On Trial

The foundations of America are being destroyed.
In fact we have a president who promised to do just that;
He promised to “transform” America.
He was promising that even more abortion blood would flow.
Homosexuality would be honored.
Christianity would be assailed.
In his bible, his “Rules for Radicals,” there are no “rules of fair play.”
He was promising to undo the foundations of America;
The foundation that rests in God; “In God We Trust.”
America elected this person;
Rejecting their heritage in God for a bowl of secular soup.
America had been moving away from God for a long time
Which gave this “pretender” and his supporters their opportunity.

The question is this:
Does America have enough “God” left in them to reject this man
And all who support him with their obviously godless intentions.
That is the question;
It is now the American people who are on trial before the Living God.

For look, the wicked bend their bows;
They set their arrows against the strings
To shoot from the shadows at the upright in heart.
When the foundations are being destroyed,
What can the righteous do?

The Lord is in His Holy Temple; The Lord is on His Heavenly Throne.
He observes the sons of men; His eyes examine them.
The Lord examines the righteous,
But the wicked and those who love violence His soul hates.
On the wicked he will rain fiery coals and burning sulfur;
A scorching wind will be their lot.

For the Lord is righteous, He loves justice;
Upright men will see His face. (Psalm 11:2-7)

Will America receive the rain of fiery coals of God's judgment
Or will they see the face of God?
That is the question!

Obama, The Antithesis Of American

By his actions President Obama is the antithesis of American.
Our forefathers came to America for religious and economic freedom.
Obama and his supporters would take these away
In pursuit of their concept of social justice.
Most importantly, however, is the fact that in their pursuit of social justice
They defy the Living God and therefore cannot be successful.
They will only lead America to its ruin, which they are on their way to doing.
This world and all that is in it belongs to God.
His Christ, Jesus, is coming back soon to reclaim it.
At that time everything that is not of Christ will be done away with.

President Obama is acting like a Saul Alinsky radical. The following, taken from Wikipedia helps one to understand his motivation:

Alinsky's own words, from his 1946 "Reveille for Radicals",[9] capture his perspective, his motivation, and his style of engagement:
  • A People’s Organization is a conflict group, [and] this must be openly and fully recognized. Its sole reason in coming into being is to wage war against all evils which cause suffering and unhappiness. A People’s Organization is the banding together of large numbers of men and women to fight for those rights which insure a decent way of life. . . .
  • A People’s Organization is dedicated to an eternal war. It is a war against poverty, misery, delinquency, disease, injustice, hopelessness, despair, and unhappiness. They are basically the same issues for which nations have gone to war in almost every generation. . . . War is not an intellectual debate, and in the war against social evils there are no rules of fair play. . . .
  • A People’s Organization lives in a world of hard reality. It lives in the midst of smashing forces, dashing struggles, sweeping cross-currents, ripping passions, conflict, confusion, seeming chaos, the hot and the cold, the squalor and the drama, which people prosaically refer to as life and students describe as 'society'.
Alinsky died of a sudden, massive heart attack in 1972, on a street corner in Carmel, California, at the age of 63. Two months previously, his interview with Playboy related to death as follows:[4]
PLAYBOY: Having accepted your own mortality, do you believe in any kind of afterlife?
ALINSKY: Sometimes it seems to me that the question people should ask is not "Is there life after death?" but "Is there life after birth?" I don't know whether there's anything after this or not. I haven't seen the evidence one way or the other and I don't think anybody else has either. But I do know that man's obsession with the question comes out of his stubborn refusal to face up to his own mortality. Let's say that if there is an afterlife, and I have anything to say about it, I will unreservedly choose to go to hell.
ALINSKY: Hell would be heaven for me. All my life I've been with the have-nots. Over here, if you're a have-not, you're short of dough. If you're a have-not in hell, you're short of virtue. Once I get into hell, I'll start organizing the have-nots over there.
PLAYBOY: Why them? ALINSKY: They're my kind of people.

Understand, that for Obama and his followers,
In their war against social evils, there are “no rules of fair play.”
This means that they will do “anything” to accomplish their goals.
This is exactly what the Nazis did in Germany.
They did anything to accomplish their goals.
In the case of the Nazis the Jews were their scapegoat.
I believe, today, Christians will be the scapegoat for Obama and his radicals.
This is already showing itself to be the case.

Let's expand this vision; Satan controls every person in this world
Except those who belong to Christ Jesus.
By his actions, Obama has shown that he has no regard for the Word of God,
For Christ Jesus or those who follow Christ.
Therefore, if Obama has his way, America will be lead to ruin.

Christ Jesus has won the victory over death, Hell and the grave; over Satan.
Christ Jesus is infinitely more powerful than Satan.
Obama, on his current path, is deceived and deceiving those who follow him.
His father is Satan, the liar and the father of lies.
The one who masquerades as an angel of light;
The one who leads the whole world astray;
The one for whom there are “no rules of fair play.”

President Obama: The Dictator

Obama Orders Catholics to Act Against Their Faith;
Bishops Call It 'Unconscionable'
Article by Terrence P. Jeffery, January 22, 2012, (CNSNews.com)

The Obama administration of Friday finalized a regulation that orders all Americans—unless they work directly at a church—to purchase government -approved health insurance plans that cover sterilizations and all FDA-approved contraceptives including those that cause abortions.

The regulation further requires that health-insurance plans must provide sterilizations, contraceptives and abortifacients without any fees or co-pay.

The regulation, issued as part of the initial implementation of Obamacare, requires Catholics to act against their faith—which teaches that sterilization, artificial contraception and abortion violate the natural law and that Catholics cannot be involved in them.

In a statement, the nation's Roman Catholic bishops immediately condemned the administration's decision to move forward with the regulation as “literally unconscionable.”

My Response To This:
This is not a Catholic problem but one for all Christians; all Americans.
President Obama's actions are in fact against God;
Abortion is against God; It is antichrist.
As Christians we are to judge the fruit of those who claim to be Christian.
The fruit of this person who claims to be Christian, is abortion,
Which is against God and antichrist; it is wicked.

The Lord's curse is on the house of the wicked,
But he blesses the home of the righteous. (Proverbs 3:33)

The Lord's curse
Is on the house of the President of the United States of America,
And upon the houses of all who support him in this action.

I ask you, where will this man stop?
Every American must decide where they stand on this issue.
I pray that most will stand with God and for God.

Do not be deceived by those who honor God with their mouths
And whose hearts are far from Him. (Isaiah 29:13)

The State Of The Union

Last night the President of the, so called, United States of America
Spoke about the state of this nation.
Today, it might well be called the disunited States of America,
As can easily be seen in its political and social discourse.
He painted a picture of hope for a nation that has rejected God
When there is no future for such a nation.
He did not address the crucial issue of this nation; its godlessness.
He did not address the fact
That the judgment of God is heavy upon this nation
To bring it to destruction unless it changes it ways.
He did not address the bulging debt
That will suddenly collapse and bring this nation to its knees.
He is a deceiver who is himself deceived;
Representing apolitical party that is like himself.
There is no hope for this nation unless it repents and turns to God.

God is speaking to America just as He spoke to Israel in the day of Isaiah,
When he said:

'Because you have rejected this message,
(The message of the Word of God and His Christ, Jesus)
Relied on oppression and depended on deceit,
This sin will become for you like a high wall,
Cracked and bulging, that collapses suddenly, in an instant.
It will break in pieces like pottery, shattered so mercilessly
That among its pieces not a fragment will be found
For taking coals from the hearth or scooping water out of a cistern.'

This is what the Sovereign Lord, the Holy One of Israel, says;
'In repentance and rest is your salvation,
In quietness and trust is your strength,
But you would have none of it.' (Isaiah 30:12-15)

Those who belong to the Living God have spoken often to this nation.
But the nation has refused to listened.
They refuse to acknowledge that the blessing and prosperity
That this nation has enjoyed has come from God;
And God's honoring those in this nation who honored Him.

Many deceived people in this nation believe
That they can dishonor God and prosper,
When, throughout all human history, this has never been the case.
It has always meant the destruction of that godless nation.
And it will be the destruction of America unless it turns to God
In repentance and humility.

The God of Creation will determine the future of this nation.
He esteems those who are of a humble and contrite spirit
And tremble at His Word. (Isaiah 66:2)
The only nation that will survive will be one God esteems.

This Presidential Election

This presidential election like most elections is a reflection of the confusion
That represents the fallen state of America and mankind.
What do we know?
We know that the future of America
And that of every nation rests in the hands of God.
We can easily name all the nations
That previously were prominent in the world,
That are now of no consequence or gone entirely.
The whole world of Noah's day is gone.

The Lord Himself instructed us to pray:
Your Kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as in Heaven.”
The Kingdom of God is where Christ Jesus rules and reigns.
The Kingdom of God is righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.
We know from the Book of Revelation that this finally occurs
When Christ Jesus returns.
By His own words, we know that Christ Jesus is returning soon.

Imagine for a moment what will be missing when Christ Jesus returns.
Most of what we see around us will be missing.
Most of the people we see around us will be missing.
There will be no more elections!

Let sink into your heart the shallowness of the current political debate
In comparison to the righteousness of God.
Christ Jesus said: Seek first and above all else the Kingdom of God
And His righteousness,
Then everything you have need of will be given to you by the Father.
(Matthew 6:33)
The clear implication is that if one does not seek first the Kingdom of God
And His righteousness, you will not be given everything you need.

We have a debate that does not include the Sovereign of the Universe.
We have a culture that defies the written Word of God.
We have puny men pretending to be consequential,
When before God they are helpless and hopeless without Christ Jesus.

Have we forgotten why Christ Jesus came?
He came to save those who would receive Him as their Savior,
To a world that stands condemned before the Living God.
Today, the world stands condemned!
The life of every living person lies in the hands of the Creator God.

The future of America and every nation lies in the hands of the Living God.
Today, it is of the Lord's mercy we have not been consumed;
God is holy, an all consuming fire.

Why do the nations rage and the peoples plot in vain?
The kings of the earth take their stand
And the rulers gather together against the Lord
And against His Anointed One (Christ Jesus).

'Let us break their chains,' they say, 'and throw off their fetters.'
The One enthroned in Heaven laughs;
Then he rebukes them in His anger
And terrifies them in His wrath, saying,
I have installed my King on Zion, my holy hill.

I will proclaim the decree of the Lord:

He said to Me, 'You are my Son; today I have become Your Father.

Ask of Me, and I will make the nations your inheritance,
The ends of the earth Your possession.
You will rule them with an iron scepter;
You will dash them to pieces like pottery,'

Therefore, you kings be wise; be warned, you rulers of the earth.
Serve the Lord with fear and rejoice with trembling.
Kiss the Son, lest He be angry and you be destroyed in your way,
For His wrath can flare up in a moment.
Blessed are all who take refuge in Him. (Psalm 2)

Today, America and the nations are raging against God.
The kings and rulers of the earth have taken their stand against the Lord
And against His Christ, Jesus, His Anointed One.
They say to themselves let us throw off the chains,
The requirements of God, His Word and His Christ, Jesus.

Today, the Lord laughs at them in their foolishness.
He rebukes them in His anger with natural and unnatural disasters;
Mighty judgments from His throne;
He terrifies them in His wrath saying,
Christ Jesus, My King, has been installed on Zion, My holy hill.

Therefore, let the kings and rulers of the earth be warned;
You have but one choice that will save you.
Serve the Lord with fear and rejoice with trembling.
Kiss the Son (Christ Jesus); respect the Son, or He will be angry with you
And you will be destroyed in your way;
Your way that seems right to men
But the end thereof is death and destruction.
The wrath of God can flare up in a moment; look and see.
Blessed, alone, are those who take refuge in You, the Christ of God;
Those whose faith, hope and trust are in You. Hallelujah!

The Ultimate Conflict

Christ Jesus coming to the earth brought the ultimate conflict.
He brought Heaven to a world dead in sin.
He came to bring fire; the fire of His Holy Spirit, He said:
I have come to bring fire on the earth,
And how I wish it were already kindled! (Luke 12:49)
Do you think I came to bring peace on earth?
No, I tell you, but division. (Luke 12:51)

The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the devil's work.
(1 John 3:8)

Christ Jesus taught every Christian to pray
That His Kingdom would come to earth as in Heaven;
Which means that the Kingdom of God
Would come and prevail over the kingdom of this earth,
Which is ruled by Satan.
And finally, that is exactly what happens, as foretold by Scripture.
And when it does, the ultimate conflict comes to an end;
It culminates in The Great Tribulation;
Christ Jesus comes to defeat the Son of Satan, the Antichrist
And all the armies of the nations of the world.
This conflict has gone on for the last two thousand years,
We are simply in the Last Days where this conflict plays out;
The Last days where Christ Jesus returns to reclaim
The earth He created and to gather together those who belong to Him.

The first words of Christ's ministry were:
Repent for the Kingdom of Heaven is near. (Matthew 4:17)
Those were and are fighting words.

Christ Jesus ignited His fire on The Day of Pentecost,
And it has been burning ever since in His chosen people.
He said: On this Rock (the fact that He is the Son of the Living God)
I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it.
(Matthew 16:18)

Throughout the last two thousand years Satan has done his best
To subvert the Church of God;
That has been the focus of all his efforts.
The whole world belongs to him.
Only the Church of God stands in his way.
However, he cannot defeat the Church of God because,
Greater is the One who inhabits the Church of God, Christ Jesus,
Than Satan, the one who rules the fallen world (1 John 4:4).
Christ Jesus is infinitely more powerful than Satan.

Who Belongs To Christ Jesus?
Christ Jesus won the victory
Over death, Hell and the grave on the cross of Calvary;
Those who belong to Him have washed themselves in His blood
And received forgiveness of their sins.
They waited in their Jerusalem and receive their personal Day of Pentecost.
They are water washed, blood washed, filled with the Holy Spirit
And are waking in the Light of Christ.

Christ Jesus said:
Whoever finds his life will lose it,
And whoever loses his life for My sake will find it. (Matthew 10:39)

If anyone comes to Me and does not hate his father and mother,
His wife and children, his brothers and sister—yes, even his own life—
He cannot be My disciple.
And anyone who does not carry his cross and follow Me
Cannot be my disciple. (Luke 14:26-27)

Who Overcomes The Evil One?
They overcame him by the blood of the Lamb
And by the word of their testimony;
They did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death.
(Revelation 12:11)

Those who are crucified with Christ to this world,
and no longer live but it is Christ who lives in them.
Who maintain their first love.
Who worship God in Spirit and in Truth.
Who's zeal for God consumes them.
Who continually drink Living Water.
Who eat the Bread from Heaven, Christ.
Who put on the full armor of God.
Who have clothed themselves with Christ.
Who live by every word that comes from the mouth of God.
Who do the will of God.

Those who are not deceived. Christ Jesus said:
For false Christs and false prophets will appear
And perform great signs and miracles to deceive even the elect—
If that were possible. See I have told you ahead of time.
(Matthew 24:24-25)

If you belong to Christ you are in the midst of the Ultimate Conflict
And the world hates you as it hates Christ Jesus.
Your life, Christ in you, tells them that they are evil.
You bear the aroma of Christ which is the smell of death to the lost.

Nevertheless, to some the aroma of Christ is winsome;
To those who hear the still small voice of God speaking to them.
Those, you will win for the Kingdom of God.
He who was seated on the throne said, 'I am making everything new!'
Then He said, 'Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.'

He said to me: 'It is done.
I am the alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the End.
To him who is thirsty
I will give to drink without cost from the spring of the Water of LIFE.
He who overcomes will inherit all this,
And I will be his God and he will be my son. (Revelation 21:5-7)

To him who overcomes and does My will to the end,
I will give authority over the nations--
He will rule them with and iron scepter;
He will dash them to pieces like pottery--
Just as I have received authority from My Father.
I will also give him the Morning Star.
He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.
(Revelation 2:26-29)

I pray that we belong to Christ and are unashamed at His return.
Then, conflict will be no more and righteousness, peace and joy will reign.

The Night Is Nearly Over!

Let no debt remain outstanding,
Except the continuing debt to love one another,
For he who loves his fellow man has fulfilled the law.
The commandments, 'Do not commit adultery,'
'Do not murder,' Do not steal,' 'Do not covet,'
And whatever other commandment there may be,
Are summed up in this one rule:
'Love your neighbor as yourself.'
Love does no harm to its neighbor.
Therefore love is the fulfillment of the law.

And do this understanding the present time.
The hour has come for you to wake up from your slumber,
Because our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed.
The night is nearly over; the day is almost here.
So let us put aside the deeds of darkness and put on the armor of Light.
Let us behave decently, as in the daytime, not in orgies and drunkenness,
Not is sexual immorality and debauchery,
Not in dissension and jealousy.
Rather, cloth your selves with the Lord Jesus Christ,
And do not think about how to gratify the desires of the sinful nature.
(Romans 13:8-14)

The apostle Paul makes love the overriding issue.
The way of love is the perfect way; it is the WAY of Christ Jesus.

We are to understand the present time.
We are to wake up from our slumber, because Christ Jesus is coming soon.
The night is nearly over; The day is almost here,
When Christ Jesus will set up His Kingdom on earth
And the current kingdoms will all be done away with.
We are to put on the armor of Light; to cloth ourselves with Christ Jesus;
With His anointing and His righteousness.
Understanding that the gratification of the sinful nature
Is spiritual death for all who indulge in it.

Soon there will be no more Today!
And all the yesterdays will be forgotten.
Let us forget what is behind and press on to that which lies ahead;
Taking a hold of the reason Christ Jesus took a hold of us.

Promises, Promises

This generation will soon learn that the promises of man are worthless. America and the nations of the world have been playing like children with monopoly money. They lived as they pleased with their monopoly money and now have accumulated debts (promises) they cannot pay. They did this because they are godless and deceived. The chief characteristic of godlessness is pride which manifests itself in arrogance.

This generation is like a teenager who threw a grand party and put it on their parents credit card. Only this time it is the parents who threw the party and the children who are left with the bill.

The chief architect of this mess is the liar and the father of lies. The one who came to steal, kill and destroy and has had six thousand years of practice. The one who decided he was too good for Heaven. A created being who decided he wanted to be like the Creator, which is as irrational a concept as one could imagine.

If this generation would turn to God, He would show them the way out of this mess. The trouble is, they have thrown off the precepts of God. They are so lost they do not know how to turn back to God. To do so they would have to admit their guilt and they are loathed to do so. They are like the proverbial lemmings and will continue to march toward the edge of the cliff. They are senseless and must follow the inclinations of their deceived hearts with the evil one whispering in their ear, “march on.”

It is terribly ironic that this situation is all told in the Word of God. It was all foretold hundreds of years before. It is not as if this whole mess is a unique circumstance. It is really just the continuing story of mankind who has rejected God; mankind who goes from war to war because of this; who today is simply at the end of the line.

Nevertheless, there is a people who have put their faith, hope and trust in God alone; A people, water washed, blood washed, filled with the Holy Spirit and walking in the Light of Christ Jesus. This people will be vindicated by the God they serve. They will be saved from the wrath of God, promised in His Word.

Today, God is saying to His people:
Go, my people, enter your rooms
And shut the doors behind you;
Hide yourselves for a little while until His wrath is passed by.
See, the Lord is coming out of His dwelling
To punish the people of the earth for their sins.
The earth will disclose the blood shed upon her;
She will conceal her slain no longer. (Isaiah 26:20)

Yet, today, by the unfathomable and limitless grace of God,
Anyone and everyone who calls on the name of the Lord
Will be saved. (Joel 2:32), (Romans 10:13), Hallelujah!

The Most Important Word

The most important word in your vocabulary may well be Hallelujah!
Praise the Lord! Why is this?
Because the Lord lives in the praises of His people;
Our praise of Him brings His Presence
And His Presence is our shelter, our refuge, our safety (Psalm 31:20)
His Presence is our rest, and so much more. (Read Psalm 91)

Praising the Lord is worshiping in Spirit and in Truth,
When it is done “in the Spirit.”
Praising the Lord is speaking the Truth because He is the Truth.
When we praise Him we come into agreement with Him;
We come into agreement with the Truth;
When we come into agreement with Him He manifests His Presence.

The Lord seeks those who will worship Him in Spirit and in Truth;
He seeks those who will come into agreement with Him.
God is Spirit, and His worshipers must worship in Spirit and in Truth.
(John 4:24)

The eyes of the Lord range throughout the earth
To strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to Him.
(2 Chronicles 16:9)
Do you need to be strengthened? Praise Him!

One of us can send a thousand of our enemies to flight
And two of us ten thousand. (2 Chronicles 32:30)
Put this concept in the context of praising our great God,
In the realm of the Spirit, and you see its power.
The devil must stand down and depart when God shows up;
When God manifests His Presence.
This is the power of personal and corporate worship.
The Bride of Christ understands this reality and practices it.

Do you want continual victory over your enemy? Praise God!
Christ has won the victory over death, hell and the grave,
And we stand in that victory;
That victory is ours, when we praise Him.

God promised to rebuild the Tabernacle of David in the Last Days.
(Acts 15:16)
He is doing this for His Bride; To give Her victory over Her enemies;
As She worships the Lord in Spirit and in Truth.

In that day the Lord Almighty will be a glorious crown,
A beautiful wreath for the remnant of His people.
He will be a spirit of justice
To Him (Christ Jesus) who sits in judgment,
A source of strength to those who turn back the battle at the gate.
(Isaiah 28:5-6)

The Lord is going to give His Bride great victory in these Last Days.
I exhort you to enter into this great battle by praising the Lord.
