When Giants Have to Fall…..

giants Good Morning! 

Facing any giants today? Monsterous Fears Maybe? 

You know, this may suprise you but …people don’t just wake up one day and realize “Hey I’m a giant slayer!”

Even those of us who DO stand up to those supposed “powers of darkness” had our days of fear and trembling, shaking and quaking, and wondering what to do next. Maybe King David was blessed in that, he did not have to listen to the news on TV every day, and hear about how many stood up to a giant and got killed in the process. See: We have it easier than David in someways (we live in New Testament times) but in other ways, we have it harder. Life was simpler in the days of King David, but the choice has always been the same. Trust God, or not Trust God. 

I do not mean idly sitting by, watching to see what God will do next…….

I’ve been writing messages for months now, as I face my own giants. I have faced many, in my time. 

This time, it was cancer. Oh yes, the big C. The name of the giant is different, the victory over it is the same. One day we will all face that last giant (death) And when God decides it’s our time, we’ll see that one defeated too, as we enter heaven forever, rejoicing. 

after King David slayed the giant, he faced a bigger one. Saul’s Jealousy and Rage.

Before he became King, He was chased around by Saul, who was so upset at David’s Victories, his own realization his time was short (as King) that he wanted to literally murder David. David’s men begged him to kill Saul, but he would not do it.  

I could talk for hours about how I came to the conclusions I have (about Faith) but you wouldn’t likely read it all (unless I write another book) and I don’t have time. What I will say is this: “The Holy Spirit” Has a lot he wants to teach you……

Will you take the time? The other thing is: Becoming a Giant Slayer takes time. David was out in the fields tending the sheep, meditating on God’s truths and principles. He was prepared for his day in the sun (and the days in the dark as well.) I don’t care what the giant’s name is, the answers is the Same. GOD! 

If you looked out the window and saw a stray dog molesting your child, you would grab whatever you could, run out there, and beat the thing half to death. GET OFF MY CHILD! 

When we face ANYTHING that threatens to destroy us the answer is the same……..

SATAN, GET OFF MY CHILD!!! In Jesus’ name! What weapon you use hardly matters. David used the one he was most comfortable with (A sling and a stone). Maybe your weapon is prayer, declarations …..speaking VICTORY SINGING …….What matters is to have a heart like David and realize “WHO ARE YOU DEVIL” TO torment the people of God? WHO ARE YOU (sickness, cancer, premature death, lack, poverty, etc) WHO ARE YOU OH MOUNTAIN? (to stand in the way of God?). 

As giant slayers…..we may have different styles. The important thing is: do we understand this concept? GOOD GOD (Very Good Father) vs BAD DEVIL (who hates us)

WHO wants to kill, steal and destroy? Not God! 

Jesus said: “The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly”
John 10:10 
 
Father make them giant slayers today (all of your People Lord God) Let it get in them once and for all YOU have given us all we need in you to defeat every giant! in Jesus’ name! Amen   Laura Grace Author, Grace to the Rescue series

Standards VS Law. We get what we allow………….and the enemy ……..

submarine-portal

Greetings, in the name of our Lord, Jesus Christ. 🙂 

I want to talk to you today about standards, vs law. We all know the passage, don’t we? “When the enemy” comes in like a flood………(Then what happens?) The Spirit of the Lord it says, lifts up a standard against it.

What is a standard? Well, this man is looking through a submarine portal. Maybe he wants in! If the person on the other side were to open the portal, the entire submarine would be flooded, and everyone in the sub, would probably drown.

We have a world today of people shouting about how unfair it is to keep this poor guy out (outside of the submarine) and how we should just “let him inside” (Figuratively speaking). I am going to talk plain here. Ready?

Its one thing to realize everyone has sin, and to realize we are all saved by Grace, if we should allow the Lord entrance, into our lives.

Here’s the thing, church. I am speaking to the people of God, at this moment in time. First of all, if you let a pack of wolves into your house, they will tear you apart. If you make a wild bear your pet, he will most likely scratch, gouge, and devour you!

We cant get rid of “the devil” just by praying. If we let him in, he’s now in the house with us. He’s a liar, a prosecuting attorney, and he is NOT YOUR FRIEND! Those who choose not to be renewed in the Spirit of their mind, who choose not to become Christ like in their thinking, will, by default, think like the other guy.

So, there are groups of people out there, large groups I might add, who not only seek to get you off the path of thinking Christ-like, but they are very vehement and crafty about it as well. Too many people are appointed, but not anointed. To many are hired to be clergy, but are not called or chosen by God. Look at the scripture, and how people were chosen, in times past (and in the early church.). They were not chosen by man, and certainly were not chosen because of their “work credentials’ either!

Yes, I am sorry to tell you, people really do have a right to believe what they want to! God gave us freedom, even to sin, even to go so far as to lie, cheat, murder, start fires, get drunk and ram some person head -on…….It doesn’t mean he approves of it, we just have the freedom to do so (sad to say.) But here’s the thing. You also have Authority over your own house, your own self, and even your own children, so long as they are living with you. 

If you open a portal to the devil, that is to say, his belief system, instead of God’s, you will have a flood come into your home. It could drown you, it could potentially destroy you, and your children as well. This is why yes, I was very strict with my children, growing up.

No, I did not let them “drink at my house’ so they would not drink and drive. No, I did not let them listen to music that promoted sex, violence, crime, and rabble rousing. And no, I did not ever let them watch rated R or violence on TV, as much as I could possibly avoid it.

No, they did not watch shows that promoted sorcery, witchcraft, or demonic spells. Why? Because yes, I did understand they would either be filled with the Spirit of God, or they would be filled with other things. My heart belongs to Jesus, and so does my mind. Nobody but me, has authority over what goes INTO My mind and heart. And Yes, I believe in Grace however, I do not believe in compromising with anti christ spirits of hell!

You do need to realize, that in compromising the gospel of Jesus Christ, which is different from making mistakes or just “being human” There will be a consequence.

You will have to agree with the standard (Of the Holy Spirit) to get the devil back OUT of your house where he belongs! You will have to make a stand. You will have to say no, your lies are not allowed to enter my mind (or my heart) and while I realize people sin, I will not endorse, support or join the rally of rabble rousing folks, who are screaming “Let sin be endorsed.” Sexually immorality is a sin. So is lying. So is Murder, hatred, (and the list goes on). That will never change, and if we agree to compromise, we will open that door and well, In comes the flood…………

And not even God can save you, so long as you refuse to close the door to it’s influence. Amen With love for God’s people…..

Demolishing Strongholds, without being a bull in a china closet!

bull

It’s not what we are doing, so much, as the way we do it, that gets us in trouble.

You can stand up for Jesus, without being a bull in a china closet!

You know, a few years ago, I was working for this place, and had told my boss I am a Christian, and a prayer warrior, and I told her I was praying for her to prosper, and her business too.

She said, “That’s fine, but just so you know, I had someone like that one time, who asked if she could pray (for my business) and I found her and her friends in a circle, at 9 in the morning, praying out loud in the office.” She continued saying, I believe, but some of my customers don’t believe, and frankly, she was not doing a good thing, I told her to stop!”

So I went in early each day, prayed for her business (and for her) when nobody was around. I anointed things with oil, and me and the Lord made a lot of declarations over that place.

And guess what? ALOT OF supernatural stuff happened! It did! One prayer  I told her about was answered, 2 years later…….

1 Peter 2:12 talks about honorable conduct. 2 Timothy 2:25 talks about humility, and how we go about things. 1 Peter 2:20 talks about how if we are beaten (for our faults) It’s not really commendable.

Ecclesiastes talks about not being overly righteous, and ruining ourselves.

So then, we have Kim Davis, the famous icon, stander-upper for Jesus! In case you didn’t know, she refused to issue marriage licenses, and was commended by many, yet she was also thrown into jail, for a time.

I saw a documentary, I did listen to the other side of the story. Did you?

Apparently, she was asked by these two gay men, “Haven’t you issued licenses to murderers, child molesters, thieves?” This in response to her stance, that she could not in good conscience, Issue a license to gay people.

What if I refused to sell a car to gay people, or a house? What if I didn’t even know they were gay? How does her stance line up with the plumb line of true justice? And I’m sorry but, they were right! Yes, I do wish they were not gay, but boy howdy, we need to grow!

The Early church (Apostles) were jailed because of signs and wonders, and not so much for what they preached, but the alarm over how many people were actually following them!

Sorcerers were put of business. Jesus was asked to leave town, because demons going into a herd of pigs, was just too much for them.

Little kids with big swords, shouting over the top of people “I AM THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD IN CHRIST JESUS” are not going to win the battle.

I’m sorry, but her actions did not represent Christ, and if she can’t do this job with a clean conscience, she ought to have resigned from the job. And whether we like it or not, the gay people had a point. And, my ex-boss had a point, and Christians, come on now!

If we force our beliefs on others, how are we any better than those who do the same for any other religion? We are not a religion! We are Christians! Anointed ones! Believing for a demonstration of the Spirit’s power! Amen?

We all want a hero, but we need a wise hero. I”ve seen a lot of miracles, signs and wonders. Many I have never talked about, except to my Friends. Many were instigated with a bottle of oil, prayers, and a whole lot of faith, in secret, and in private, with God and I working together. My Hero is Jesus, and I am praying for signs and wonders to follow me.

 

How about you?
