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.

RISE OF ANTIFA IN CHARLOTTESVILLE ALARMS FREE-SPEECH ADVOCATES

 - The Washington Times - Updated: 6:21 p.m. on Sunday, August 20, 2017
Even those who despise neo-Nazis are worried about the rise of the Antifa, the masked protesters whose stock rose after they took on white supremacists at the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville.
The Antifa, which stands for “anti-fascists,” may be the sworn enemies of Nazism and racism, but the radical left-wing protesters also aren’t fans of the First Amendment, having shut down scheduled speeches by conservatives Milo Yiannapoulos and Ann Coulter earlier this year in Berkeley.
That’s by design. 
The guiding principle behind the Antifa, which has its roots in pre-war Europe, is to defeat “fascists” before they can gain a foothold in government and society in order to avoid another Nazi Germany.
If that means using threats, intimidation, and even violence to muzzle so-called “fascists,” then so be it, said Mark Bray, author of “Antifa: The Anti-Fascist Handbook” (Penguin Random House), which is scheduled for release Sept. 12.
“Antifa are anarchists and Communists and Socialists who are revolutionaries and don’t have any inherent regard for the law,” said Mr. Bray, a visiting scholar at the Gender Research Institute at Dartmouth University. “To try to put it within that framework is kind of missing the fact that they don’t really care.”
He pointed to the “millions of deaths” throughout history from fascist groups, saying that the Antifa considers its efforts to be “self-defense” against Nazis.
Foes of the Antifa describe the movement as a fascist organization in its own right, given its disregard for the First Amendment and willingness to use mobs and the “heckler’s veto” to shush dissenting voices.
“It is important for the public to understand that the so-called Antifa are not well-intentioned bystanders engaged in civil discourse, but armed thugs intent on silencing their opponents,” said Mark Pulliam, a lawyer and contributor to conservative publications. “The First Amendment was intended to protect debate and the ‘free market of ideas,’ not to give a weapon to one side to suppress the other.”
Even Richard Cohen, president of the liberal Southern Poverty Law Center, which routinely lists mainstream conservative groups alongside the Ku Klux Klan on its “hate map,” has raised alarm about the Antifa.
“I think it’s a spectacularly bad idea to give one group of people the right to silence another group of people,” Mr. Cohen said Sunday on “Meet the Press.” 
“It’s contrary to our values embodied in the First Amendment. It’s likely to drive the people they are trying to censor underground, where they may resort to illegal means to express themselves like bombs.”
In the wake of World War II, however, Mr. Bray said one of the lessons was that fascists could have been stopped if more people had resisted them early on.
“The anti-fascist side is to look at how it was that fascist and Nazi groups gained power back in the 20s and 30s, and one of the lessons they’ve taken out of it is that a lot of people weren’t sufficiently alarmed early enough, they weren’t taken seriously enough until it was too late,” Mr. Bray said. “And so the argument being that you don’t let them take that first step toward being normalized.”
You also don’t have to be a card-carrying Nazi to be considered a fascist. Anyone who falls to the right of the political spectrum is apparently fair game, including the Multnomah County Republican Party, which was threatened by Antifa rioting that ultimately forced the cancellation of the annual rose parade in April.
“Anti-fascists aren’t only against fascists,” said Mr. Bray. “They’re basically against the far right in general.”
Does the Antifa consider President Trump a fascist? “Some would say yes and some would say no, but there is a sort of broad agreement that he enables them [fascists], and that he has fascistic qualities,” said Mr. Bray.
“And he definitely does from my perspective have fascistic qualities, even though I wouldn’t consider him a fascist in the full sense,” he said.
What about Hillary Clinton? “They’re opposed to her, too. But it’s not like they apply the same tactics to a Democratic Party event as they would to a Traditionalist Workers’ Party event, which is a fascist group,” Mr. Bray said.
A former Occupy Wall Street organizer, Mr. Bray said he isn’t part of the Antifa, but he was able to conduct extensive interviews with anonymous Antifa activists by agreeing to speak to them by phone or encrypted message boards.
“The only reason I managed to get any interviews is I have a lot of connections through doing left-radical work for 15 years, and even with that, there are groups where no one would talk to me because there’s a high level of paranoia about law enforcement and fascist backlash,” he said.
“They just don’t want information out there that can be used against them or find their identity.”
Antifa protesters resist being interviewed during protests, avoiding or ignoring reporters who try to interview them. One Antifa activist was accused of punching Taylor Lorenz, a reporter for the Hill during the Charlottesville melee after she refused to stop recording the event.
David Horowitz, conservative author and expert on left-wing movements, said one problem with the Antifa’s reasoning is that actual American fascists such as neo-Nazis are negligible, irrelevant groups on the political scene whose membership has been in decline for years.
In Charlottesville, more than 1,000 protesters, including the Antifa, turned out to counter a Unite the Right crowd estimated at 250 to 500.
The Antifa “is a real threat. 
This alt-right crap—at a national gathering they had 500 people. That’s nothing. It’s laughable,” Mr. Horowitz said. 
“It’s a bogeyman man invented by the left to justify its anti-democratic agenda … And people are too intimidated.”
The problem, said Mr. Bray, is that sometimes fascists don’t always disappear. “Certainly you can ignore them and sometimes they go away, but the fact that sometimes they don’t is the concern,” he said, citing the recent rise of fascism in Greece.
Certainly the Antifa won the public-relations battle in Charlottesville. Not only was an alleged neo-Nazi arrested for driving into a crowd, killing a woman and injuring at least 19, but prominent left-wing academic Cornel West later credited the Antifa with saving him and others.
“The police, for the most part, pulled back,” Mr. West told Democracy Now! “The next day, for example, those 20 of us who were standing, many of them clergy, we would have been crushed like cockroaches if it were not for the anarchists and the anti-fascists who approached, over 300, 350 anti-fascists. We just had 20.”
As a result of Charlottesville, said Mr. Bray, “the threat that fascists and neo-Nazis pose is a lot more evident to people than it was previously, albeit for tragic reasons.”
“I think people are really mad and frustrated and more sympathetic toward these confrontational tactics and dealing with them [fascists],” said Mr. Bray, “so I think in that sense it’s opened more space for people to consider it or at least understand it.”
Mr. Horowitz warned people to beware of the Antifa. 
“They are the fascists. 
What other group in America is running around trying to shut down people from speaking by violent methods and defaming them at the same time?” he asked. 
“That’s what fascism is.”

PAYPAL SUSPENDS JIHAD WATCH AFTER PROPUBLICA HIT PIECE

PAYPAL Suspends Jihad Watch After ProPublica Hit Piece Against Anti-Jihad News Sites #BoycottPaypal

Yesterday I published an exchange I had with a Lauren Kirchner, young Hitler-youth type of journalist from ProPublica, an uber-left non-profit, threatening advertisers and payment services that were found on my site. I was not the only target, other counter jihad sites received this vicious “interview request” as well. Jihad Watch, former Muslim Ali Sina, Bare Naked Islam were also targeted.
Today, Paypal suspended Robert Spencer’s Jihad Watch account.
Anyone the left calls a Nazi is now shunned, ruined — their livelihood murdered.
Paypal should be boycotted. I will be moving all of my accounts off Paypal.
Here is what Robert received from Paypal.
RE: Notice of PayPal Account Limitation
Dear Robert Spencer,
We have recently reviewed your usage of PayPal’s services, as reflected in
our records and on your website https://www.jihadwatch.org. Due to the
nature of your activities, we have chosen to discontinue service to you in
accordance with PayPal’s User Agreement. As a result, we have placed a
permanent limitation on your account.
We ask that you please remove all references to PayPal from your website.
This includes removing PayPal as a payment option, as well as the PayPal
logo and/or shopping cart.
If you have a remaining balance, you may withdraw the money to your bank
account. Information on how to withdraw money from your PayPal account can
be found via our Help Center.
We thank you in advance for your cooperation. If you have any questions or
need our support, please contact the PayPal Brand Risk Management
Department at aup@paypal.com.
Sincerely,
Ronita
PayPal Brand Risk Management
PayPal
The SPLC lumps legitimate groups in with real hate groups in order to defame its political foes, but PayPal allowed no discussion, no appeal. It acted as judge, jury, and executioner.
In reality, I oppose jihad mass murder. PayPal apparently thinks that makes me a “hatemonger.” I oppose the murder of people who decide in conscience to leave Islam. PayPal thinks that makes me a “right-wing extremist.” I oppose honor killings, female genital mutilation, scripturally-sanctioned wife-beating, etc. PayPal thinks that means I am too hateful to use their service.
So: if you support the work of Jihad Watch, close your PayPal account now. Contact them and tell them why. Tell all your friends that PayPal has bowed to Left-fascism, and to boycott it.
And please help us keep going: donate at Stripe.com to director@jihadwatch.org. Your donation helps me appear at worthy events that can’t fund my appearance, and keeps our website operating.
The Left is moving in for the kill now and trying to delegitimize and silence all voices of dissent. Don’t allow this rapidly creeping totalitarianism to succeed.
Here is the vicious, defamatory ProPublica story.

DESPITE DISAVOWALS, LEADING TECH COMPANIES HELP EXTREMIST SITES MONETIZE HATE

Most tech companies have policies against working with hate websites. Yet a ProPublica survey found that PayPal, Stripe, Newsmax and others help keep more than half of the most-visited extremist sites in business.
Because of its “extreme hostility toward Muslims,” the website Jihadwatch.org is considered an active hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center and the Anti-Defamation League. The views of the site’s director, Robert Spencer, on Islam led the British Home Office to ban him from entering the country in 2013.
But its designation as a hate site hasn’t stopped tech companies — including PayPal, Amazon and Newsmax — from maintaining partnerships with Jihad Watch that help to sustain it financially. PayPal facilitates donations to the site. Newsmax — the online news network run by President Donald Trump’s close friend Chris Ruddy — pays Jihad Watch in return for users clicking on its headlines. Until recently, Amazon allowed Jihad Watch to participate in a program that promised a cut of any book sales that the site generated. All three companies have policies that say they don’t do business with hate groups.
Jihad Watch is one of many sites that monetize their extremist views through relationships with technology companies. ProPublica surveyed the most visited websites of groups designated as extremist by either the SPLC or the Anti-Defamation League. We found that more than half of them — 39 out of 69 — made money from ads, donations or other revenue streams facilitated by technology companies. At least 10 tech companies played a role directly or indirectly in supporting these sites.
Traditionally, tech companies have justified such relationships by contending that it’s not their role to censor the Internet or to discourage legitimate political expression. Also, their management wasn’t necessarily aware that they were doing business with hate sites because tech services tend to be automated and based on algorithms tied to demographics.
In the wake of last week’s violent protest by alt-right groups in Charlottesville, more tech companies have disavowed relationships with extremist groups. During just the last week, six of the sites on our list were shut down. Even the web services company Cloudflare, which had long defended its laissez-faire approach to political expression, finally ended its relationship with the neo-Nazi site The Daily Stormer last week.
“I can’t recall a time where the tech industry was so in step in their response to hate on their platforms,” said Oren Segal, director of the ADL’s Center on Extremism. “Stopping financial support to hate sites seems like a win-win for everyone.”
But ProPublica’s findings indicate that some tech companies with anti-hate policies may have failed to establish the monitoring processes needed to weed out hate sites. PayPal, the payment processor, has a policy against working with sites that use its service for “the promotion of hate, violence, [or] racial intolerance.” Yet it was by far the top tech provider to the hate sites with donation links on 23 sites, or about one-third of those surveyed by ProPublica. In response to ProPublica’s inquiries, PayPal spokesman Justin Higgs said in a statement that the company “strives to conscientiously assess activity and review accounts reported to us.”
After Charlottesville, PayPal stopped accepting payments or donations for several high-profile white nationalist groups that participated in the march. It posted a statement that it would remain “vigilant on hate, violence & intolerance.” It addresses each case individually, and “strives to navigate the balance between freedom of expression” and the “limiting and closing” of hate sites, it said.
After being contacted by ProPublica, Newsmax said it was unaware that the three sites that it had relationships with were considered hateful. “We will review the content of these sites and make any necessary changes after that review,” said Andy Brown, chief operating officer of Newsmax.
Amazon spokeswoman Angie Newman said the company had previously removed Jihad Watch and three other sites identified by ProPublica from its program sharing revenue for book sales, which is called Amazon Associates. When ProPublica pointed out that the sites still carried working links to the program, she said that it was their responsibility to remove the code. “They are no longer paid as an Associate regardless of what links are on their site once we remove them from the Associates Program,” she said.
Where to set the boundaries between hate speech and legitimate advocacy for perspectives on the edge of the political spectrum, and who should set them, are complex and difficult questions. Like other media outlets, we relied in part on the Southern Poverty Law Center’s public list of “Active Hate Groups 2016.” This list is controversial in some circles, with critics questioning whether the SPLC is too quick to brand organizations on the right as hate groups.
Still, the center does provide detailed explanations for many of its designations. For instance, the SPLC documents its decision to include the Family Research Council by citing the evangelical lobbying group’s promotion of discredited science and unsubstantiated attacks on gay and lesbian people. We also consulted a list from ADL, which is not public and that was provided to us for research purposes
“It is not hateful, racist or extremist to oppose jihad terror,” said Spencer, the director of Jihad Watch. He added that the true extremism was displayed by groups that seek to censor the Internet and that by asking questions about the tech platforms on his site, we were “aiding and abetting a quintessentially fascist enterprise.”
Spencer made these comments in response to questions emailed by ProPublica reporter Lauren Kirchner. Afterwards, Spencer posted an item on Jihad Watch alleging that “leftist ‘journalist’” Kirchner had threatened the site. He also posted Kirchner’s photo and email, as well as his correspondence with her. After being contacted by ProPublica, another anti-Islam activist, Pamela Geller, also posted an attack on Kirchner, calling her a “senior reporting troll.” Like Spencer, Geller was banned by the British Home Office; her eponymous site is on the SPLC and ADL lists.
Donations — and the ability to accept them online through PayPal and similar companies — are a lifeline for sites like Jihad Watch. In 2015, the nonprofit website disclosed that three quarters of its roughly $100,000 in revenues came from donations, according to publicly available tax records.
In recent weeks, PayPal has been working to shut down donations to extremist sites. This week, it pulled the plug on VDARE.com, an anti-immigration website designated as “white nationalist” by the SPLC and as a hate site by the ADL. VDARE, which denies being white nationalist, immediately switched to its backup system, Stripe.

IRAN: PARLIAMENT CHANTS "DEATH TO AMERICA"

Iran: Parliament chants “Death to America” while voting to increase military budget by $800 MILLION

They’re using the money Obama gave them to finance jihad and war against the U.S. and the free world in general. This is Obama’s legacy.
“‘Death to America’ Iran ‘more dangerous than North Korea’ after nuclear funding approval,” by Vickiie Oliphant, Express, August 15, 2017:
IRAN could replace North Korea as the biggest threat to the United States as lawmakers overwhelmingly agreed to pump more money into its nuclear programme.
Tehran’s parliament voted to funnel thousands of pounds into the development of its nuclear missile project in a bid to fight US “adventurism” at the weekend.
Chants of “death to America” echoed around the chamber as the bill which will increase the state’s military budget by almost $800million was passed with a huge majority….
Under Iran’s new laws, which still need to be rubber-stamped by the country’s overseeing body, $260million will be pumped into the missile programme alone.
A further £300m will to the country’s Quds force, while the remaining millions will be spent on other intelligence related projects.
The bill charges the government of recently re-elected President Hassan Rouhani with confronting the “threats, malicious, hegemonic and divisive activities of America in the region.”
Today President Hassan Rouhani even warned he could ramp up his nuclear missile programme if the US continues with its “threats” of sanctions, agreed by Donald Trump earlier this month.
And he hinted he could pull out of the nuke deal he cut with world leaders in 2015.
He told lawmakers: “In an hour and a day, Iran could return to a more advanced [nuclear] level than at the beginning of the negotiations.”…http://pamelageller.com/2017/08/death-military-budget.html/

IMAM MASTERMINDED BARCELONA JIHAD ATTACK


Imam Masterminded Barcelona Jihad Attack

“The mosques are our barracks, the domes our helmets, the minarets our bayonets and the faithful our soldiers…” – Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan
Monitor all the mosques, rather than have forensic examiners visit after each ghastly event to search for clues.
— AFDI calls for immediate investigation into foreign mosque funding in
the West and for new legislation making foreign funding of mosques in
non-Muslim nations illegal.
— AFDI calls for surveillance of mosques and regular inspections of mosques in the U.S. and other non-Muslim nations to look for pro-violence materials. Any mosque advocating jihad or any aspects of Sharia that conflict with Constitutional freedoms and protections should be closed.

IMAM WHO ‘MASTERMINDED’ BARCELONA MASSACRE HAD LINKS TO 2004 MADRID ATTACKERS AND LIVED WITH A SUICIDE BOMBER WHO BLEW HIMSELF UP IN IRAQ

  • Police were last night investigating Islamic preacher Abdelbaki Es Satty’s link
  • They searched his flat for samples of DNA and fingerprints to verify whether he was killed at the bomb factory where the cell prepared a planned attack
  • Es Satty, 45, began preaching in Ripoll around two years ago but stopped in June
  • Police sources said he followed the fundamentalist Salafi branch of Islam
  • Neighbours said he left for Morocco on Tuesday and has not been heard from
By Tom Worden for MailOnline, 20 August 2017:
An Imam who ‘masterminded’ the deadly attack on Barcelona had links to the terror cell behind the 2004 Madrid massacre.
Abdelbaki Es Satty, who was based in Ripoll, had previously been convicted of importing cannabis.
He is believed to have radicalised members of the terror cell responsible for Thursday’s attacks.
Local media claimed Satty has connections with suspects detained over the 2004 al-Qaeda train bombings which killed 191 people and injured 1,500 in Madrid, counter-terrorism sources told El Pais.
News website OK Diario reported the preacher previously lived in Barcelona with members of a terrorist cell which was smashed by police in 2006.
Another of his former flatmates, Belgacem Bellil, blew himself up in a suicide attack in Iraq in 2003, the website said.
Belgacem, an Algerian, detonated 3500lbs of explosives in a truck at a military base, killing 28 people including 19 Italians in al-Nasiriyah in November 2003.
Es Satty also spent two years in prison after being caught smuggling cannabis between north Africa and Spain, El Periodico newspaper reported.
Police have raided the flat of Islamic preacher Abdelbaki Es Satty in Ripoll, Spain, as they investigate his possible role in the Barcelona terror attack
Police are investigating whether Es Satty was responsible for radicalising the members of the cell who carried last week’s atrocities in Barcelona and Cambrils.
They searched the imam’s flat in Ripoll, Spain, for samples of DNA and fingerprints to verify whether he was killed at the bomb factory where the terror cell prepared a planned attack with butane gas bombs.
Police found the remains of two bodies in the factory in Alcanar and are said to be searching for a third.

Papers bearing what appeared to be French names, phone numbers and e-mail addresses were seen by reporters in Es Satty’s apartment after it was searched.

Es Satty, 45, began preaching in Ripoll around two years ago but stopped two months ago, sources at the town’s mosque said.
The president of the mosque where Es Satty preached, Ali Yassine, said he hadn’t seen him since June, when he announced he was returning to Morocco for three months.

‘He left the same way he came,’ said a bitter Wafa Marsi, a friend to many of the attackers, who appeared Saturday alongside their families to denounce terrorism.
Police sources told Spanish media he followed the fundamentalist Salafi branch of Islam.
Detectives were said to be investigating whether he radicalised the young men who planned and carried out the atrocity on Thursday afternoon.
Es Satty’s flatmate, named only as Nourddem, said the preacher had left home on Tuesday ‘because he was leaving for Morocco’. Nourddem has heard nothing from him since.
‘The last time I saw him was Tuesday and he told me that he was going to see his wife in Morocco,’ Nourddem told AFP.
Police sources told El Mundo newspaper Es Satty’s age and profile suggested he might be the leader of the terror cell. The Mossos d’Esquadra would not comment on that claim.
Everyone so far known in the cell grew up in Ripoll, a town in the Catalan foothills near the French border 100 kilometers (62 miles) north of Barcelona.
A police document published by Spanish media said two alleged members of the group, Youssef Aallaa and Mohamed Hichamy, now both believed dead, had travelled to Zurich in December 2016.
Swiss newspaper Tages-Anzeiger said Swiss police confirmed that at least one of the Barcelona suspects had been in Zurich in December 2016, although it said it was not yet possible to say if the suspects had any connections to Switzerland. An investigation of the visit was under way, it said.

Spanish police searched nine homes in Ripoll, including Es Satty’s, and two buses, and set up a roadblock that checked each car entering the town. Across the Pyrenees, French police carried out extra border checks on people coming in from Spain.
Neighbors, family and even the mayor of Ripoll said they were shocked by news of the alleged involvement of the young men, whom all described as integrated Spanish and Catalan speakers with friends of all backgrounds.
Halima Hychami, the weeping mother of Mohamed Hychami, one of the attackers named by police, said he told her he was leaving on vacation and would return August 25. His younger brother, Omar, slept late Thursday and left mid-afternoon.
Mohamed Hychami is believed among the five attackers shot to death by police in Cambrils. She hasn’t heard from Omar since he left.
‘We found out by watching TV, same as all of you. They never talked about the imam. They were normal boys. They took care of me, booked my flight when I went on vacation. They all had jobs. They didn’t steal. Never had a problem with me or anybody else. I can’t understand it,’ she said.
Even with Abouyaaquoub at large, Spanish Interior Minister Juan Ignacio Zoido declared the cell ‘broken’ Saturday.
Authorities in Spain and France pressed the search Saturday for the supposed ringleader of an Islamic extremist cell that carried out vehicle attacks in Barcelona and a seaside resort
This rented van brought terror to the streets of Europe when it was driven at speed down a busy street in central Barcelona, killing 14 including a three-year-old boy

In addition to the five killed by police, four were in custody and two or three were killed in a house explosion Wednesday. He said there was no new imminent threat of attack.
Police also conducted a series of controlled explosions Saturday in the town of Alcanar, south of Barcelona, where the attacks were planned in house that was destroyed Wednesday by an explosion.
Authorities had initially thought it was a gas accident, but took another look after the attacks.
Initially, only one person was believed killed in the Wednesday blast. But officials said DNA tests were underway to determine if human remains found there Friday were from a second victim. On Sunday, it was revealed that there might be third body.
A police official, speaking on condition of anonymity to discuss the ongoing searches, said investigators believed the remains may belong to Es Satty.
Spanish authorities said on Sunday that they have been unable to identify the remains found in at a house, complicating the manhunt for the Barcelona attackers because they are not confident about who is on the run.
The official said investigators also discovered ingredients of the explosive TATP, used by the Islamic State group in attacks in Paris and Brussels, as well as multiple butane tanks that the group may have wanted to combine with the homemade explosive and load into their vehicles.---http://pamelageller.com/2017/08/imam-masterminded-barcelona-jihad-attack.html/---My comments: These Jihad Attacks will go On and On, as the West refuses to acknowledge the Inherent Evil of Islam. 

DAILY FIRE: THERE ARE TWO SPIRITS IN OPPOSITION

THE SPIRIT YEARNS

TODAY'S SCRIPTURE:

“For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God" (Ephesians 2:8).

DAILY FIRE!
The main objective of God's Word is to bring me into the peace of perfect rest with God.

The important principle of faith is: Christ Jesus is alive in me. Many wait for the Spirit to move, but He must move in the direction they want. The moving of the Spirit is not just in our feelings. There is a strange and neglected verse in James: 

“The Spirit who dwells in us yearns jealously” (James 4:5). The Holy Spirit within us conflicts with fleshly desire, urging us into service for Him.

Let us look at Ephesians 2:8: “For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God.” Faith is a mutual act between God and me. 

There are two spirits in opposition: the spirit of the devil, and the Spirit of God. They both pressurize us. First, we read of “the spirit who now works in the sons of disobedient” (Ephesians 2:2), then we read that when we are saved: 

“We are…created in Christ Jesus for good works” (verse 10). When we do His will, do His good works, it is by His grace. We cannot pride ourselves on it. The glory is all the Lord’s.
