God spoke these words unto Abram
Genesis 12:3 kjv
And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.
Genesis 12:2 KJV
And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing:
Israel May 14, 1948 and May 15, 1948
According to the encyclopedia,
Declaration of independence and international recognition:
- May 14 – The Israeli Declaration of Independence is made in Tel Aviv, a few hours before the British Mandate is due to expire. At midnight the British Mandate of Palestine is officially terminated and the State of Israel comes into being.
- May 15 – The United States grants de facto recognition to the State of Israel, eleven minutes after it comes into existence, becoming the first country to recognize the Jewish state
Isaiah 66:7-8 KJV
Before she travailed, she brought forth; before her pain came, she was delivered of a man child.
Who hath heard such a thing? who hath seen such things? Shall the earth be made to bring forth in one day? or shall a nation be born at once? for as soon as Zion travailed, she brought forth her children.
Ezekiel 37:10-14 KJV
So I prophesied as he commanded me, and the breath came into them, and they lived, and stood up upon their feet, an exceeding great army.
11 Then he said unto me, Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel: behold, they say, Our bones are dried, and our hope is lost: we are cut off for our parts.
12 Therefore prophesy and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, O my people, I will open your graves, and cause you to come up out of your graves, and bring you into the land of Israel.
13 And ye shall know that I am the Lord, when I have opened your graves, O my people, and brought you up out of your graves,
14 And shall put my spirit in you, and ye shall live, and I shall place you in your own land: then shall ye know that I the Lord have spoken it, and performed it, saith the Lord.
And I will bring again the captivity of my people of Israel, and they shall build the waste cities, and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, and drink the wine thereof; they shall also make gardens, and eat the fruit of them.
15 And I will plant them upon their land, and they shall no more be pulled up out of their land which I have given them, saith the Lord thy God.
There is a scripture in the book of Numbers 24 KJV which shows that Balaam knew it pleased the Lord to bless Israel Numbers 24:1 KJV.And when Balaam saw that it pleased the Lord to bless Israel, he went not, as at other times, to seek for enchantments, but he set his face toward the wilderness.
As we see ungodly decisions arising in leading officials, the scripture and discerning have allowed us to that these are not unknown thoughts and actions to these legislators and political figures, but they are going against God. These are plans carried out in the natural but it is a spiritual matter of wickedness (Ephesians 4:12kjv) and it is known. Trump really opposing Obama on non-veto? Behind the scenes, it is the same team. I hear some prophetic encounters embarking end times. We are seeing these troubling actions in the world which were forspoken, warned about and prophesied in the book of Daniel and Revelations.
These decisions are efforts to affect all Christians, whether living in the eastern region.
Galatians 3:14 says, That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.
Galatians 3:7 Know ye therefore that they which are of faith, the same are the children of Abraham.
Anyone who is saved, living sanctified unto the True and Living God and standing for righteousness are a part of his family. Having genealogies traced specifically back to Jewish customary linages and Abraham’s Israelian heritage physically is not the heart of concern but most importantly spiritually is what the Galatian scripture verses above establishes, what Abraham stood for. In the faith, these are your brothers and sisters as God’s chosen people. Now I am speaking of the ones in the Bible, not the ones there so much dwelling on the land. I am not implying a free pass to heaven without repentance based on how you came into the earth, although several ministers such John Hagee others seen may imply that, that is not it by a long shot. Jews have to accept Jesus Christ as Lord to make it into heaven as anybody else. No designated means of how a person entered or came into the earth is an indication to a ticket or a free pass granted in disobedience. We can see that in the old testament that with the children of Israel, and we can see it today. Is it absolute that preachers children going to heaven based on the fact they were born into a Christian family? No, actually it is personal decision. All that are called according to his purpose will cling to do what is good, honorable and acceptable unto God. Any designated means of how individual s entered into this earth is not a ticket or a free pass granted. Jesus gave an excellent observation on the matter. Also even in John 1:11kJv that he came unto his own and his own received him not. Luke 13:3kjv except ye repent speaks about that. Except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish. Years ago I recall a young lady named Chimere at school who was actually a Hebrew Israelite speaking about tribes and research. In school, I have encountered Muslims, Five Percenters, Egyptian/ Egyptologists, Rastafarians, Buddhist, Hinduist, Mormons, Jehovah’s Witnesses, Catholics, and those who were Catholic-Christians which perceived themselves to be both. I have faced those of almost every or various facade of life. I have learned of various research discussions on the current topic studies regarding Palestine occupancy, divisions of land, tribes, various ideologies, thoughts, archeological concepts. I have come across research studies of Babylon’s territorial correlations with Iraq. I have learned a lot of things
I have seen the in depthness of how some philosophy teachers are highly skilled at alluring students to zone out mentally in a way that is demonic.
I have witnessed first-hand how it is to hand out gospel tracts, hang posters, and talk to people about what seems to be falling away as the Bible forwarded about. We are seeing some outlandish things in the world.The Devil is out to destroy the saints. He has a short time according to scripture.
Saints of God will see the prophetic fulfillment and various effects taking place in these last days.We are called to be a voice and should speak up as well with seeing an indication of the devastation to Israel, not so much those living over there or to cause a scene. The church is Israel. When I hear of Israel, it is not denoting the physicality to be the crux or the heart of the matter, if you understand the connection of what I am talking about. Here is what I am saying. The land know today is only a fortitude of what I am talking about from the larger issue. That is an underlining message of what is to come upon Christians. That is a physical effect having a spiritual meaning. We urge God’s blessings which has been spoken on his nation and promised since Genesis 12. The church of Jesus of Christ represents is Israel that is importantly the nation of people. The saints of God.
News alert sent in by Sis Dana
Christ time is all through the year. Christians celebrate Jesus Christ all year long as Lord and Saviour. He was in fact born (Luke 2:11 kjv), died (John 19:30 kjv) and risen from the dead (Matthew 28:6 kjv). As we look to understand the matter of Christmas holiday, we find no biblical indication that Jesus was born on December 25th as indicatively passed along among the gentile. It is a part of the religious dogma of today. . Christmas does not fit well with Christian theology in its blur of commercialism and Santa Claus which has nothing to do with Christ. It is not limited to that. There were previous blogs which were detailed on the matter history wise. There is a customary practice of the gentile/ heathen discussed in Jeremiah 10:2-4KJV. “Thus saith the LORD, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them.”For the customs of the people are vain: for one cutteth a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the axe.They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not.
The text is laid out in such a manner that a five-year-old could understand it. If there was a short study conducted wherein a group of children were asked questions, they would know what you are talking about from a few words. If you mention cutting a tree and putting silver balls on it, the kid would probably say ” Christmas… Christmas tree”. Jeremiah 10 scripture is not confusing at all. In the years past I had a Christmas tree and it was full of presents. We had a white tree, a silver tree, a mauve tree and a green tree and now no tree. They were not from the forest. I could not stand the smell of a real live tree, but that is no excuse to continue on with a plastic tree. The documentary on Christmas exposed does explain mistletoes, reefs on the door and literally gives clear information on its derivative. Christmas remains a vulnerable time for commercialism.
Should I not witness during Christmas?
Yes, it is a great time to witness about Christ as all year long. It is witnessing ever put aside?! It may surface from a testimony or some other way. One idea about Christmas is the distortion and the commercialism. How would people understand what is the truth with the collision of Jolly Old Saint Nicholas? As confused as the nation is, they aim for it to be that way. While shopping in the store you will hear songs about Santa Claus, Rudolph, and Jesus are the same radio stations, interchangeably so any Christian can be of use to tell someone the Truth. You will hear Rudolph The Red Nosr Reindeer and Santa’s Sleigh vs Jesus Christ is born, Hark the Herold, Wonderful Child Isaiah 6:9 KJV etc. It could be a time to tell somebody the truth as seen fit and led to do so. It is too easy to become wasteful, caught up in commercialism and hedonism, between the music jingles in the store or anything. Even from the psychological aspects, these things weigh heavy to an individual’s emotions. If the pastors are condoning, the members are going to do it. Many churches are going along with everything including things which they see are evil Halloween, year after year. Jeremiah 8:20 KJV The harvest is past, the summer is ended, and we are not saved. The walk with Christ is not about doing everything everyone else is doing. 1 Corinthians 6:17 KJV Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord. Christ time is all year along and the truth. Jesus is the Truth. My brother said so you do not celebrate Christmas and he was looking at me strangely. The bible says in 1 Corinthians 2:14 KJV “But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. I began to tell my brother that I do not celebrate like that. There are some people who work in the corrupt and witches and wizards in Hollywood and churches of Satan who had goals to deter Christian people away from Christ through Christmas. I believe some were out UK. Some appeared to be scholarly presentation. I think there has to be leariness and discerning of that. Christians still celebrate Christ not Christmas and that distinguishability is helpful in presentations.
Not celebrating for this season, but will return
I heard a minister who acknowledged that she does not celebrate Christmas now and she gave valid points and seemed to want a closer walk with God, but she began to express once she gets married and has kids she is going to get a tree and the whole nine yards and celebrate it again. What in the world? That is confusing. Some people have done things in life, sometimes even unaware and other times aware in their Christian journey. Some people celebrated Christmas and they were sincere. They were just unware, unbeknownest to it. I have been there, but was able to learn better. i understood the unecessary things I had embraced. 1 Corinthians 2:11 Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices. This is no manner just about Christmas, but after truth is revealed what is done with it is your own choice. Whatever you have done, truly repented, you been graced with a chance to make new decisions. There are various testimonies shared. I am not talking about Christmas strictly, but whatever your life consists of before receiving Christ it was nothing. We have done things and been headed for destruction, but once you have received Christ now there is a holy difference. Nobody’s life is anything spectacular without Christ. Romans 3:10 KJV As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one: He is our righteousness. One scripture explains we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags. 1 Corinthians 1:30 KJV But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption. That is what happens when coming darkness into his marvelous light. We need to put on the breastplate of righteousness.1 Peter 2:9 KJV But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light; We have to walk as children of light. The church must come away from the all time heavy merchandising and materialism of Santa Claus ho, ho… It is out. Most people do not appreciate or find that those gifts are not to their likings anyway, as we have witnessed. It is not what they wanted. Some will rewrap and give it to someone else. The Christmas tree, the loads and piles of gifts to be given out December 25th Christmas and Christmas Eve etc.. it is not customary anymore imperative to our lives. Jesus is our gift. He is God’s gift to the world. Jesus our Saviour was born, and the Bible says Ye must be born again. John 3:7 KJV Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again. Our gift to the Lord is our life. I have no frankincense and myrrh to bring, but a life offered unto God a living sacrifice. Christ is celebrated and adored all year along for Christians. Peace be unto thee. Be Blessed!
Luke 2:1-52 KJV
And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be taxed.
2 (And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.)
3 And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city.
4 And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:)
5 To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child.
6 And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered.
7 And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.
8 And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.
9 And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.
10 And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.
12 And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.
13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,
14 Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.
15 And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us.
16 And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger.
17 And when they had seen it, they made known abroad the saying which was told them concerning this child.
18 And all they that heard it wondered at those things which were told them by the shepherds.
19 But Mary kept all these things, and pondered them in her heart.
20 And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things that they had heard and seen, as it was told unto them.
21 And when eight days were accomplished for the circumcising of the child, his name was called Jesus, which was so named of the angel before he was conceived in the womb.
22 And when the days of her purification according to the law of Moses were accomplished, they brought him to Jerusalem, to present him to the Lord;
23 (As it is written in the law of the Lord, Every male that openeth the womb shall be called holy to the Lord;)
24 And to offer a sacrifice according to that which is said in the law of the Lord, A pair of turtledoves, or two young pigeons.
25 And, behold, there was a man in Jerusalem, whose name was Simeon; and the same man was just and devout, waiting for the consolation of Israel: and the Holy Ghost was upon him.
26 And it was revealed unto him by the Holy Ghost, that he should not see death, before he had seen the Lord’s Christ.
27 And he came by the Spirit into the temple: and when the parents brought in the child Jesus, to do for him after the custom of the law,
28 Then took he him up in his arms, and blessed God, and said,
29 Lord, now lettest thou thy servant depart in peace, according to thy word:
30 For mine eyes have seen thy salvation,
31 Which thou hast prepared before the face of all people;
32 A light to lighten the Gentiles, and the glory of thy people Israel.
33 And Joseph and his mother marvelled at those things which were spoken of him.
34 And Simeon blessed them, and said unto Mary his mother, Behold, this child is set for the fall and rising again of many in Israel; and for a sign which shall be spoken against;
35 (Yea, a sword shall pierce through thy own soul also,) that the thoughts of many hearts may be revealed.
36 And there was one Anna, a prophetess, the daughter of Phanuel, of the tribe of Aser: she was of a great age, and had lived with an husband seven years from her virginity;
37 And she was a widow of about fourscore and four years, which departed not from the temple, but served God with fastings and prayers night and day.
38 And she coming in that instant gave thanks likewise unto the Lord, and spake of him to all them that looked for redemption in Jerusalem.
39 And when they had performed all things according to the law of the Lord, they returned into Galilee, to their own city Nazareth.
40 And the child grew, and waxed strong in spirit, filled with wisdom: and the grace of God was upon him.
41 Now his parents went to Jerusalem every year at the feast of the passover.
42 And when he was twelve years old, they went up to Jerusalem after the custom of the feast.
43 And when they had fulfilled the days, as they returned, the child Jesus tarried behind in Jerusalem; and Joseph and his mother knew not of it.
44 But they, supposing him to have been in the company, went a day’s journey; and they sought him among their kinsfolk and acquaintance.
45 And when they found him not, they turned back again to Jerusalem, seeking him.
46 And it came to pass, that after three days they found him in the temple, sitting in the midst of the doctors, both hearing them, and asking them questions.
47 And all that heard him were astonished at his understanding and answers.
48 And when they saw him, they were amazed: and his mother said unto him, Son, why hast thou thus dealt with us? behold, thy father and I have sought thee sorrowing.
49 And he said unto them, How is it that ye sought me? wist ye not that I must be about my Father’s business?
50 And they understood not the saying which he spake unto them.
51 And he went down with them, and came to Nazareth, and was subject unto them: but his mother kept all these sayings in her heart.
52 And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favour with God and man.
Should COGIC let Bishop Charles Mason go?
The Church of God in Christ organization was founded by Bishop Charles Mason in 1907, and he passed in 1964 according to research. While memories, lessons taught and loved cherished for any loved one will linger on, this organization goes beyond that. Elder Mason died over 50 years ago, and the remaining COGIC organization still celebrate his birthday. Whether it is a Christian thing to do or ritualistic to do is out of the question. No more years are acquired on this earth for him.The doors of necromantical spirits and cultism have likely emerged. While people are often aware of how old a deceased loved one would have been if they were still alive today is one thing, but COGIC takes it further for Elder Mason as they refuse to accept his transition. That is indicated in the candid COGIC celebration that he is 150 years old? This particular pentecostal church may have merged into cult practice which is not easily foreseen for those within. It may surface to be a cult practice. Ministers are seen covering their heads with a prayer shawl with the image of the Bishop Mason who is deceased. In Exodus 12:13 KJV And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where ye are: and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and the plague shall not be upon you to destroy you, when I smite the land of Egypt. The blood was a token that would cover over us, the lamb of God . That is whom our worship belongs. The people of LORD must not lose focus. A good thing is lessons, teaching, and literature will remain and could help someone in years to come, beyond the years of any man’s physical life that is it. Paul inspired Timothy, Jesus warned his disciples of the times to come after his own departure, and 2 Thessalonians 2:15 KJV says Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions which ye have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle.” We are constantly reminded of the old testament examples within the new testament such as about Noah in Luke 17:26 KJV And as it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man. It was a matter of leading people to Christ in the hard times, not man. Despite that, this images of the Bishop Mason is all over various COGIC church assemblies behind the pulpit chairs, you may find this image.
It is quite common. Some new converts if any are confused on whom to pray to with the idol worship manifesto. I will tell you about a young woman. She was raised in the C.o.g.i.c. church, and her father a pastor. She spoke something not out of defiance to her parents nor to her biblical foundation which she had acquired and continued to embrace, but the cult behavior in COGIC. She expressed that her parents felt as though God was only in the Church of God in Christ. Seven thousand who had not bowed to Baal was inducive to the COGIC. Today COGIC surely gives a hot seat to celebrities, the love of various ungodly lifestyles and the love of cash is pondered to great magnitudes. Certain things are not user-friendly. There is no precise stance on holiness from COGIC’s “head of state” Charles Blake. However; the sister’s testimony about her parents COGIC stance was a confirmation to something another person had shared with me named Christy. Christy COGIC testimony was somewhat similar to the other ladies story. Christy told me about how her pastor wanted to purchase the building which he had building been using to conduct church services. He collected special offerings from his members which he allegedly indicated was towards the purchase of the building. Members were shocked that they had to abruptly relocate because their pastor misused the funds. Christy began basically expressing that her grandmother was a mean church usher and that she would not fellowship with various racial-ethnicities and people who are of Non-COGIC affiliation. People should know that The Church of God, Church of God in Christ, Assemblies of God organizations etc or some glamourized affiliations are popular, but it is not a safe way ticket. Mankind is in need of salvation. One sister said she was in the choir, and partying and going to church went hand in hand. She attested she did not know you have to live the Bible because it was activity in the COGIC church which she had been raised in. While that is a shame, but it happens. It was a new experience and she was thankful to meet people who feared God. Wherever you are, you still to have to be saved and know Christ for yourself. It has to be real. With all the new age things going around the relationship has to coincide with what in the Book, The Bible. From there you will be able to determine if you are in the right place church wise etc.The statement is not said lightly. This is not about the COGIC alone, but many organizations have become so far off from the foundations to acquire a crowd of people and extra funds until it is no longer about the cross. It is really not hidden. To think we could to see people who do the blatant cult things, wearing catholic garments is something and knowing they see not as the Bible speaks about. Their eyes they have closed.
We covered with God’s protection and his feathers, not man. Psalms 91:4 KJV He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.
Psalms 91:1-2 KJV He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
2 I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.
Just a few weeks ago a woman I know had a situation with a mannequin. She tripped over a mannequin, sprained her knee and incurred a head concussion on the floor as she departed Kohl’s department store. She concluded the cause of the incident is that some bar on the mannequin was protruded out and that it should have been placed inward. While that was a physical situation, it goes much further and has a spiritual significance. Here is a video on the mannequin challenge. A clear understanding may be grasped on the spiritual side of what is going on, as well as the historical information of it.
