STOPPING THE FIERY ARROWS

STOPPING FIERY ARROWSSEP SEPT..2014 STOPPING THE FIERY ARROWS

Know this my sisters and brothers in the Lord, that satan is coming after you.
You cannot be so holy as to think that he is not coming after you. You cannot pray enough, you cannot fast long enough, and you cannot go to church often enough to stop satan from coming after you.
Please know that Jesus will not come after you; He is waiting on you to come to Him. When you just think of Jesus, the angels in heaven begin to rejoice.
Call on Him and He is right there for you. The angels in heaven are having a party and you are the guest of honor. Your name is on the billboard in heaven.
Now, satan is very upset because he has lost another soul to Jesus.
He (satan) has to fight to get you back on his side, so he coming after you. He (satan) has to stop you from thinking about Jesus or going to church. He (satan) is coming from every direction and using anyone and anything he can to stop you.
Most of the time, he just uses you, to stop you from going to church or calling on Jesus.
He tells you, “I’m (you) too tired today and that I can go to church tomorrow or next Sunday”.
Satan says to call a friend because you need to talk to someone that will answer you right now. You can justify this by saying that you’ll talk to Jesus in prayer later that night.
Satan does not come to you as satan, he comes in the form of first person. He makes you think it is your idea.
Question: How do you know when it is satan?
Answer: When Jesus is not in the center and does not get the glory.
In what you do, Jesus should always be able to get the glory.
If you’re going to work, thank Him(Jesus) for having a job.
If going to the beach, thank Him (Jesus) for living so close to a beach.
Thank Him(Jesus) for waking you up today; for allowing you to see the birth of another day.
Put on the whole armor of God that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
The breastplate of righteousness, girds your waist with truth. Shroud your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. Take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit which is the word of God.
Satan is coming. So, when those days come and you have on the whole armor of God, satan cannot touch you, no matter what he shoots at you.
Put on God’s armor and keep it on day and night.
Understand that the armor; the breastplate of righteousness. Let Jesus into your heart.
Girdle you waist with truth. Learn the truth about God’s Word for yourself.
Shroud your feet with the gospel of peace. Wherever you go, be friendly and peaceful, even if it’s hard to do.
Shield yourself with faith. Having your faith in Jesus’ faith and believing that He has enough faith to knock down any fiery darts of satan.
The helmet of salvation – confessing Jesus is Lord.
The sword of the Spirit- reading your Bible knowing what the word says about your situation.
Stand your ground when satan comes, knowing that Jesus is with you always.
God Bless You,
The Forerunner

UNDERSTANDING PRAYER

UNDERSTANDING PRAYERAUGUST 2014

UNDERSTANDING PRAYER

Prayer is not you asking God for something. Why do we need to ask God in prayer for anything? For we know that God knows what we want before we ask Him.
The most important part of our prayer should be listening to what God has to say to us.
Listening for that soft voice that tells us, what we need to do and where we need to go helps us to understand His Word. He gives us wisdom and knowledge in His Word. He gives us words of love and peace that relaxes our soul and mind.
We get so caught up in telling God about all our problems that we forget to stop and listen to what the Holy Spirit (God) is saying to us.
Always remember to put Jesus (the Holy Spirit and God) in the center.
You have heard people pray. They are only trying to impress others by letting them know that they are holy. They go on and on with all these words, that if God were listening to them, He would have forgotten what they were asking of Him.
Read what Jesus said about when you pray. “Go into your room and when you have shut your door pray to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly. When you pray, do not use vain repetitions as the heathens do. For they think that they will be heard for their many words. Therefore, do not be like them. For your Father knows the things you have need of before you ask Him”.
Our prayers should be prayers of thanksgiving. Let God know that we understand that it is ‘His will’ not ‘our will’ that is done. Then, all you’ll have to say is, “Let your will be done” or “I thank you Father for hearing my prayers and answering them”.
When Jesus spoke to Laz’a-rus after he had been dead for four days he didn’t use many words. All Jesus said was, “Father, I thank You that You have heard Me, and I know that You always hear Me, but because of the people who are standing by, I say this that they may believe that You sent Me. Then He called out, “Laz’a-rus come forth!” (John 11:41-44). Read and understand that Jesus only used three (3) words to raise the dead. The rest of what He said was for us to believe that God had sent Him.
Another example is the prayer of Grace (for the blessing of food). Often times too many words are used.
What did Jesus said when He blessed the food? “Bless it O Lord, thy God, King of the universe who bring food from the earth and wine from the vines.” That is all that we need to say.
Read what Jesus said about long prayers.
“When you pray, don’t be like the hypocrites (a person that pretends to be what they are not; one who pretends to be better than is really so), who loves to pray publicly on street corners and in the synagogues (in groups) where everyone can see them.”
When you pray, do not babble on and on as people of different religions often do. They think their prayers are answered only by repeating their words again and again. Don’t be like them, because your Father knows what you are in need of before you ask Him.”
So ask for wisdom, understanding when you pray, and then wait for Gods Words to come forth.
Do not take my word. Read the Bible for yourself, so that you may know and then, pass it on.
God Bless You
