The Days To Come

The Days To Come
Revelation 22:10 And he said to me, "Do not seal the words of the
prophecy of this book, for the time is at hand. 11 He who is unjust,
let him be unjust still; he who is filthy, let him be filthy still;
he who is righteous, let him be righteous still; he who is holy, let
him be holy still." 12"And behold, I am coming quickly, and My
reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work. 13 I
am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, the First and
the Last." 14 Blessed are those who do His commandments, that they
may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter through the
gates into the city. 15 But outside are dogs and sorcerers and
sexually immoral and murderers and idolaters, and whoever loves and
practices a lie. NKJV
The days that are going to come are going to be worse then ever. Yet
Christ's true followers are going to shine greater then ever. You
never get to see how bright a star is unless it is put on the
blackest night as a background. And so will it be with the days to
come. Those who know how to obey the Lord when He says "No" and
"Wait" are truly God's faithful. They do not serve Him so that they
can be seen or heard. They do it so that Christ may be seen and
heard. Their agenda is God's will, so they take great delight when
He says "No" or "Wait" because they do not have an agenda of their
own to serve. They also know how foolish, weak and faulty they are,
and because of this, they do not rely on themselves, but instead on
God's undeserved kindness to them.
They know that they are special and powerful, not because they chose
Christ, but because God chose them. They also know that they do not
get any greater in and of themselves while they are here on earth
because there is nothing about them that God can use. They know that
the only way for them to be great and of use to Christ is for they
themselves to die daily and to be crucified to the world. They do
not think that they are better than others, but they do know that
they are better off than all those who are still Godless.
They love others enough and are willing to be hated for telling them
the truth about sin, salvation, judgment and eternal life. These are
the ones who do not come to God just because they need Him for
something. They come to Him, suffer in Him and follow Him because
they want to do these things out of love for Him. These are the ones
who look to be corrected and convicted of going off the path,
instead of pouting and perishing in self-pity. They are so close to
God, that instead of them just being daydreamers, He makes them into
dreammakers. They take all of their questions to Godly counsel only.
And that is why they possess Godly answers. These saints seem
ordinary to the world, yet to God they are His extraordinary
They don't burn out--they just burn bright. They don't give up--but
they always get up. If no one else on earth was following Christ,
they would say, "Here I am Lord. I will follow you!" They do not
need to be encouraged to follow their Savior because they bring
their own motivation with them when they go and get their provision
from Him. They do not need to be convinced that Christ is the only
way because they have already refused every other way. When people
say to them, "How can you believe in God with all the evil in the
world going on?" They will say, "How can you not believe in God with
all the evil in the world going on?" These saints need not change a
thing. May they only stay on the path that they are on.
Many today who are professing Christ are fooling themselves into
thinking that their intentions are holy. One says, "The Lord told
me." Another says, "I only want God's will." Yet, they do not
believe that God can see the motive of their hearts. They think that
as long as they say these words then they are free to disobey His
word. Their true motive is to validate anything that they do by
claiming to want God's will done. They believe that the mask they
put on in front of God's holy saints which covers over the lies and
disobedience will never be torn off. They are so used to wearing the
mask of looking righteous that they themselves actually believe that
Like the scripture says, they believe that because they are gifted
and that they tell others about God's power that they themselves
will be saved. The only real fruit that these liars bear is the
fruit of self-deception and self-worship. They claim to want God's
ways, yet cut so many corners that there is nothing left but a round
room for them to go around in circles. These are the ones who claim
to, "Train their children up in God's ways," but all they use is
words from the scripture without they themselves obeying it.
They also pretend to take Godly counsel and wisdom, but then after
receiving it decide to do what ever feels good to their flesh
anyway. These are the ones that claim strong teaching is
condemnation, so they can disobey any word from God that they do not
like. These are the ones that have no knowledge of God as scriptures
declare Him, yet they claim to be speaking for Him all the time.
These are the ones who are reading this and still have a chance to
think differently by no longer hiding behind that mask which to God
is already transparent. Humble yourselves by not hiding or denying
the truth and come to Christ with a sincere heart.
Whose Army Are You In?
I Am a Soldier
I am a soldier in the army of God.
I am a
soldier. I am not a baby.
I do not need to be pampered, petted, primed up,
pumped up, picked up, or pepped up.
I am a soldier.
No one has to call me, remind me, write me, visit me, entice me, or lure me.
I am a
soldier. I am not a wimp.
I am in place, saluting my King, obeying His orders,
praising His name, and building His kingdom!
No one has to send me flowers, gifts, food, cards, candy, or give me handouts.
I do not need to be cuddled, cradled, cared for, or catered to.
I am committed. I cannot have my feelings hurt bad enough to turn me around.
I cannot be
discouraged enough to turn me aside.
I cannot lose enough to cause me to quit.
When Jesus called me into this Army, I had nothing.
If I end up with nothing, I will still come out even. I will win.
My God will supply all my needs. I am more than a conqueror.
I will always triumph. I can do all things through Christ.
Devils cannot defeat me. People cannot disillusion me.
Weather cannot weary me. Sickness cannot stop me.
Battles cannot beat me. Money cannot buy me.
Governments cannot silence me, and hell cannot handle me!
I am a
Even death cannot destroy me.
For when my Commander calls me from this battlefield,
He will promote me to a captain.
I am a soldier, in the Army, I'm marching, claiming victory.
I will not give up. I will not turn around. I am a soldier, marching Heaven bound.
Will you stand with me?
A Prayer for Freedom From Deception
“In the Name of Jesus Christ, I bind my body, soul, and spirit to the will and purposes of the Most High God. I bind myself to the Truth of God and His Word. I bind myself to an awareness of the power of the Blood of Jesus Christ working in my life every day. I bind my mind to the mind of Christ so that I can have the thoughts, purposes, and feelings of His heart within me. I bind my feet to the paths you have ordained for me to walk in, God, that my steps will be strong and steady. I bind myself to the work of the cross with all of its mercy, truth, love, power, forgiveness and dying to self.
In the Name of Jesus Christ, I bind the strong man and I loose his hold on everything he has ever stolen from me. I rebuke his works and I loose the power and effects of every deception, device, and influence he wants to bring against me. Lord, I repent of having wrong attitudes and thoughts, I renounce them now and I ask your forgiveness. I loose ever old wrong pattern of thinking, attitude, idea, desire, belief, habit, and behavior that may still be working in me. I tear down, crush, smash and destroy every stronghold that I have erected to protect them. I bind myself to the attitudes and patterns of Jesus Christ. I bind myself to the overcoming behavior and spiritual desires that line up with the fruit of the Holy Spirit.
My Father who art in Heaven, I loose any stronghold in my life protecting wrong feelings I have against anyone. Forgive me as I forgive those who have caused me pain, loss, or grief. I loose any desire for retribution or redress. In the Name of Jesus Christ, I loose the power and the effects of any harsh or hard words (word curses) spoken about me, to me or by me. I loose any strongholds connected with them. I loose all generational bondages and their strongholds from myself. Thank you, Jesus, that you have promised in your Word that whatsoever I bind and loose on earth will be bound and loosed in Heaven.”
Pray Psalm 64:2-10
“My Father, Who art in Heaven, Lord I am standing on the Truth of your Word. You said that you would give me the keys to the kingdom, that whatsoever I would bind on earth would be bound for me in Heaven and whatsoever I would loose on earth, would be loosed in Heaven. Right now, in the Name of Jesus Christ, I bind my will to the will of the Most High God, that I will be constantly aware of His will and purposes in my life. I bind myself to the Truth of God in His Word, that I will not be deceived by the many subtle deceptions of the world and the devil.
I bind myself to the Blood of Jesus Christ, that I will never take it for granted. I want to be constantly aware of its miracle working power to restore, heal, and keep me safe. I bind myself to the mind of Christ that I will be aware of how Jesus would have me think in every situation I come into this day. I do not want to react out of my own human, carnal thoughts when situations arise suddenly, I want to think and act as Jesus would have me to act. I bind my feet to the paths of righteousness that my steps would be steady and sure and true all day long. I bind myself to the work of the Cross in my life so that I will continue to die daily to my own selfish desires and motivations and be more like Him. I bind the strong man so that I may spoil his household and take back every bit of joy, peace, blessing, freedom, and every material and spiritual possession that he has stolen from me. I take them back right now, in the Name of Jesus Christ. I loose the enemy’s influence over every part of my body, soul and spirit. I loose, crush, smash, and destroy every evil device that he may try to bring into my sphere of influence during this day.
I repent of every wrong desire, attitude, and pattern of thinking I have ever had. Forgive me Lord, for holding onto wrong ideas, desires, behaviors and habits. I renounce and reject these things. In the Name of Jesus Christ, I loose (destroy, crush, break, smash, melt) every wrong attitude, pattern of thinking, belief, idea, desire, behavior and habit that I have ever learned. I loose the strongholds around them that would keep me from being completely surrendered to the Will of God for my life. I loose all doubt and confusion from myself.
I have bound myself to the mind of Christ and I loose ever wrong thought and evil vain imagination that would keep me from being in sweet unity with Him. I bind and loose these things in the Name of Jesus Christ, who has given me the keys to do so. Thank you Lord for the Truth that sets me free so that I can dedicate myself to you wholly and surrender to your Will. Thy kingdom come thy will be done in earth as it is in Heaven. Amen & Amen!”
My Father Who Art In Heaven:
In the Name of Jesus Christ, Lord, I want what you want, God, even if they never say that they are sorry. Even if they never say that they were wrong. Lord God, I want what you want, even if they never say that I was right, even if they never say that I deserve to be repaid. I want what you want God, more than I want to get even, more than I want to be recognized for what I’ve done, more than I want to be appreciated for what I went through.
I want what you want, Lord God Most High, more than I want that wrong relationship, more than I want fulfilled fantasies, more than I want control, more than I want others held accountable for what they did.
I want what you want, Lord God Most High, more than I want my own way. No matter what it costs my soul life, I want what you want Lord God Most High, so that I can die to self, and that you can work through me to accomplish your plans and purposes for the Close of the Age!
