The Coming Fall of the Rothschild Empire…

“When you enter the land which the LORD your God gives you, you shall not learn to imitate the detestable things of those nations. “There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, one who uses divination, one who practices witchcraft, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer, or one who casts a spell, or a medium, or a spiritist, or one who calls up the dead. “For whoever does these things is detestable to the LORD; and because of these detestable things the LORD your God will drive them out before you. “You shall be blameless before the LORD your God. “For those nations, which you shall dispossess, listen to those who practice witchcraft and to diviners, but as for you, the LORD your God has not allowed you to do so. (Deuteronomy 18:9-14 NASB)

‘Behold, I will throw her on a bed of sickness, and those who commit adultery with her into great tribulation, unless they repent of her deeds. (Revelation 2:22 NASB)

‘Behold, I will cause those of the synagogue of Satan, who say that they are Jews and are not, but lie—I will make them come and bow down at your feet, and make them know that I have loved you. (Revelation 3:9 NASB)

Worshiping Satan is the antithesis of what the Lord desires for humanity and the Rothschild Empire have been worshiping Satan… 😦

They have now come up for judgement before the Lord and those of them who do not want to repent will be removed by the Lord… 😦

Those who are willing to repent will give themselves to the Lord and their wealth to His Body, The Church, for the Lord to use in The Harvest… 🙂

The Police & The Military…

For the majority of my life (without publicly stating it) on the inside I’ve considered myself to be a pacifist…

For me practically this led me to one life experience where I was accosted by a couple of guys at a bus stop outside a local Mall here in Christchurch one of whom asked me to give him my sunglasses and when I said, “No”, pushed me over onto my back onto the pavement…

When I got back up he told me that he was going to beat me up and I asked him, “Are you OK?” then he took a swing at me and hit me in the face and I got knocked to the ground again…

When I got up the second time he and his friend ran away and hopped on a bus…

In that interaction I had no desire to defend myself (and felt that the Lord gave me peace during it) but after it was over, I went into the Mall and told Mall Security what had just happened…

They told me that a number of others had reported that they’d also been accosted by two guys in that same time period so it looked like these guys were hopping onto and off of buses in the Mall vicinity and intimidating and beating up people for some reason…

I left it at that, but I didn’t go to that Mall much after that occurred and I never caught a bus from that bus stop again…

I guess the way I feel, regarding my pacifist thoughts, is that (since I already know the Lord) I’d rather that someone else hurt me (so that I don’t hurt, seriously injure or kill them defending myself) if they attack me, just in case the Lord will save them at some later time…

I’m not sure if this is the way the Lord sees things but I probably still do consider myself to be mainly a pacifist (to be completely honest) but recently I had a revelation about the police and I believe by extension the military which kind of took me by surprise…

I was reading through Genesis and came to, “the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is on the earth” (Genesis 9:16b NASB) which God made with us via (our delegate) Noah after the flood (see Genesis 8:20 – Genesis 9:17)…

We learn that this was an important everlasting covenant because it is referred to later on in scripture (specifically I believe in Isaiah 24:5 as I don’t believe there is any other everlasting covenant which this verse could be referring to) in very sombre terms with Isaiah 24 painting the picture of what would happen to the earth after we, as the earth’s inhabitants, had broken this everlasting covenant with the Lord…

To be able to break this everlasting covenant with the Lord means that we, as the inhabitants of the earth, had something which we were meant to do (our side of the covenant, as covenants are always between two parties) which we haven’t done with respect to that covenant and when we read the covenant (again see Genesis 8:20 – Genesis 9:17) the only two things which we, as the inhabitants of the earth, could break would be the Lord’s command that an animal which murders a human be put to death and that a human who murders another human be put to death (Genesis 9:5-6)…

It would appear that the Lord made this overarching everlasting covenant with us (which I believe is for the purpose of civic governance) to avoid another occurrence of what had just happened in the flood, where before the flood, “the wickedness of man was great on the earth, and… every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually” (Genesis 6:5b NASB) which prompted the Lord to, “blot out man… from the face of the land, from man to animals to creeping things and to birds of the sky; for I am sorry that I have made them” (Genesis 6:7b NASB) and to start again via Noah and his family and the chosen animals who entered into the ark…

It was like He was giving us civic governance authority to ‘police ourselves’ (with respect to murder only it would seem as nothing else is mentioned) so that He wouldn’t need to step in again and sort things out as He had to with the flood…

The issue of the sons of God (fallen angels) taking wives for themselves from the daughters of men had already been resolved as all the Nephilim (children born to them) had perished in the flood (2 Peter 2:5) and the demons involved had been banished “into hell… reserved for judgement” (2 Peter 2:4b, see also Jude 1:6) and from Genesis 19 we see that the Lord, after a close inspection of Sodom & Gomorrah dealt with the sexual immorality being practiced in those cities directly Himself with “brimstone and fire from… heaven” (Genesis 19:24b NASB)…

Thus, as we are now still living, in a civic governance sense, under the everlasting covenant made between the Lord and Noah (as our delegated representative) – because the Law of Moses (or the subsequent covenant made between the Lord and Moses) was for the nation of Israel up until the time that their Messiah came – nothing in the Law of Moses still holds in terms of how any nation on earth (including Israel) presently governs itself civically (in terms of law and order)…

If when Jesus died on the cross (and the veil in the temple was torn from top to bottom) not just the covenant between the Lord and Moses (as the physical nation of Israel’s delegated representative) but also the covenant between the Lord and Noah (as all the inhabitants of the earth’s delegated representative) were annulled then Paul wouldn’t have made the specific reference he did to civic governance in Romans 13 (after establishing salvation by faith, growing in grace and spiritual service in the preceding chapters of Romans)…

Every person is to be in subjection to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those which exist are established by God. Therefore whoever resists authority has opposed the ordinance of God; and they who have opposed will receive condemnation upon themselves. For rulers are not a cause of fear for good behavior, but for evil. Do you want to have no fear of authority? Do what is good and you will have praise from the same; for it is a minister of God to you for good. But if you do what is evil, be afraid; for it does not bear the sword for nothing; for it is a minister of God, an avenger who brings wrath on the one who practices evil. Therefore it is necessary to be in subjection, not only because of wrath, but also for conscience’ sake. For because of this you also pay taxes, for rulers are servants of God, devoting themselves to this very thing. Render to all what is due them: tax to whom tax is due; custom to whom custom; fear to whom fear; honor to whom honor. (Romans 13:1-7 NASB emphasis mine)

The words Paul uses above, under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, after telling us in the previous chapter (see Romans 12:17-21) not to take our own revenge but to leave room for God’s wrath, seem to indicate that the Lord desires to use the police (within a nation) in exercising civic governance…

Peter appears to back this up (see 1 Peter 4:12-19) encouraging us not to suffer “as a murderer, or thief, or evildoer, or a troublesome meddler”…

If the covenant between the Lord and Noah no longer applied then Paul wouldn’t have mentioned civic authorities bearing the sword and being avengers and Peter wouldn’t have mentioned suffering as a murderer…

Thus, looking at scripture, it would appear to me that there is definitely a place for the police (within a nation) and that our tax money should go towards paying the police, and paying the courts (the lawyers and judges and their various associates) with respect to murder, theft and any other serious crimes which come within Peter’s definition of being an evildoer or a troublesome meddler…

In this world, it would be essential to have judges who judge with righteous judgement as anyone found guilty of murder, under the covenant made between the Lord and Noah, would face the death penalty…

Any lawyer, in this world, would have justice as their sole interest and as the stakes were so high (life or death) a very high bar would be required to demonstrate guilt…

To be fair, in such a world (which only the Lord could create), I would be happy to contribute my tax dollars towards providing boundaries around our nation and our communities which would protect ourselves from violent crime…

I guess the military comes in on that broader scale where there are nations who want to murder large portions of the populations of other nations (and take over their nations) and these nations need to be stopped…

A good example of murderous nations would be the Axis Powers in World War II, i.e. Germany, Italy & Japan…

A good example of nations obeying the covenant made between the Lord and Noah would be the Allied Powers in World War II, i.e. Britain (including other members of the Commonwealth), France, Russia and the United States…

If the Allied Powers had not obeyed the Lord’s covenant with Noah in World War II, we would not have a free society in the West today and the Jewish people would have been completely obliterated…

If the Jewish people had been completely obliterated, then Jesus would never have been able to return to reign in Jerusalem, as before He returns the nation of Israel must turn to Him and say, “Blessed is He who comes in the Name of the Lord” (see Matthew 23:39)…

When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn. (Proverbs 29:2 KJV)

Discernment…

I’ve been thinking about the way we receive information and what we choose to believe as being true…

There’s a very important principle in this (i.e. how we know who to trust and who not to trust) and it has a lot to do with discernment…

So what is discernment?

An important foundation, or ground-rule, of discernment, is the realization that none of us has to believe anything that anyone else tells us to be true…

Whether that person is our parent or grandparent, our aunt or uncle, our school teacher, our sports teams’ coach, our line manager, our mentor, our spiritual leader or even our doctor…

When we are young sometimes the cards are stacked against us comprehending the truth of what I’ve just shared above…

There is an art, which we learn as we grow older, to not agree with what we’re being told and thus not submit to it in our hearts by those in positions of authority over us…

The way I’ve personally learnt it is that when someone who genuinely is in authority over me requires me to do something that I don’t believe in, let’s say the involuntary and compulsive paying of taxes to the government for an example, that I do this (i.e. pay the taxes) but I don’t submit on the inside to this being right (or the way things should be) and it doesn’t stop me from praying to the Lord to change the system of government in my country…

Thus it’s possible for us to respect someone’s position of authority in terms of doing what they tell us (eg. paying taxes) but not believe what they are trying to force us (or grind us down) to ‘give in’ to as being right (or to stop fighting and ‘lay down and die’ so to speak) and to inwardly submit to (or become complicit to, to the point that we ‘receive’ the slavery this brings)…

If we learn this principle of not submitting on the inside to authority figures that we disagree with then our spirits won’t be broken through whatever ‘force’ or ‘control’ or ‘manipulation’ or ‘thumb screws’ that these authority figures try to impose upon us…

All these techniques are techniques to chain our minds (so that we cannot think freely for ourselves)…

The next level of freedom to clear the foundation to begin to build the house of discernment in our lives is to be able to realize that even the opinions of those who we choose to be our friends or wives and husbands don’t define who we are or how we have to think, even about ourselves…

Everyone, even those we choose to bring in close to us, have their own opinions and this is a good thing…

At times those opinions will hurt us personally when they appear to be (or are) pointed directly against us and what we cherish deeply in our hearts…

The lesson to learn here about those we choose to be close to us is that even they don’t define us…

We can still choose (if that’s what we choose to do) to be close to them based on their opinions about us even if we don’t believe these to be true, but over time if these opinions persist and we still don’t believe those opinions are true, those relationships will naturally grow distant as there is no agreement (or compatibility) in our thinking…

This is a hard lesson but if we stay true to what we believe, even in the face of opposition from those we’ve chosen to be close to, we will protect our ability to exercise discernment in the decisions we face in life…

As soon as someone else (even someone we’ve chosen to bring close to us) is given control by us over what we think is true we become their slave, we have lost our freedom of thought and thus lost our discernment…

So assuming we come to a point where no one (whether they be authority figures or friends or loved ones) has any mental hold over us, from that ‘platform’ we’ll now be in a good position to begin to endeavour to relate to the outside world in terms of all the messages we are bombarded with on a daily basis…

What is someone’s motivation?  This is the first question we should ask ourselves in the outside world when we come across a voice which is trying to persuade us to entertain their idea or their product or their cause or to become a part of their movement…

What’s in it for them?  Who’s paying them?  Who’s paying whoever is paying them?  And on and on and on up until we reach the ultimate payer and then we would ask ourselves what is the motivation of that ultimate payer?

What is the end game?  Everything we’re encouraged to get involved in or participate in has an end game and in discovering (through a process of why questions) what the end game is at the highest level we can find out a lot about whether we want to invest our thoughts, time, energy, money and lives in that end game…

What do we really believe in?  As we ‘fact find’ with respect to the above questions we’ll find out what those around us believe in and are passionate about (which doesn’t make them right by the way) but it’s important for us to know and establish what we believe in and are passionate about so we can tell whether we want to invest the opportunity cost of ‘going down their rabbit hole’ or not in terms of our finite life span on earth…

By knowing what we really believe in it eliminates a lot of inefficiency in terms of being dragged in all directions in terms of our attention, attachment and devotion to various pursuits, beliefs and causes…

Having gotten this far, how though, when we come across information which so many are stating as being true on issues which we’ve decided we are interested in, do we know whether they are telling us the truth?  They tell us they care about the thing which we’ve discovered we care about but how do we know they’re genuine?

Again, my personal experience has been that often I have a ‘gut feeling’ about people and their motivations just by being around them or watching them talking on television or observing them in person or through how they relate to others or myself, it’s like an ‘intuition’ which isn’t based on fact but based on getting ‘a sense’ of the person and what they’re about…

It’s this ‘gut feeling’ or ‘ring of truth’ (like tapping a glass with a fork and hearing that distinctive ‘ding’ sound) or ‘intuitive feeling’ which helps me to establish over time (sometimes almost instantly) who I can trust and who I can not, who I will co-labour with and who I will not and even who I will entrust my heart to and who I will not…

I believe we come to understand over time (through meeting different types of people in our lives) that not everyone’s ‘gut feeling’ mechanism is the same or as sensitive as everyone else’s hence if we feel that we’re not as ‘intuitive’ as we’d like to be on being able to make these ‘instinctive decisions’ (if we’re in our own opinion maybe too ‘gullible’ or ‘naive’) then it’s wise for us to team up with a friend who we believe has a strong ‘intuitive antenna’ for who is genuine and who is not…

From there we could choose to spend time investigating those who this ‘intuitive’ friend or person feels are ‘the real deal’ and ‘check out’ the ‘intuitive’ person’s intuition by delving into facts about these ‘real deal’ people to consolidate or validate whether we can trust the ‘intuitive’ person…

I believe this is a good approach…

Where there is no guidance the people fall, But in abundance of counselors there is victory. (Proverbs 11:14 NASB)

Finally, speaking personally, I have come to believe that I can only absolutely trust One Person and that One Person is God (the Father, Jesus & the Holy Spirit)…

Everyone else (at times) lies and (at times) has false information (even if that’s just in their motivation for why they share true facts and true information)…

Some people (who know God better than others) lie less and share more true information from a pure motive…

My desire is to listen to these people (the ones who know God better), to engage with these people…

After all the above, the objective truth which God has written down has been written down in the scripture (i.e. what is commonly known today as the 66 books of the Old and New Testament of the Holy Bible)…

I desire that (the scripture) to always be my final standard – I take everything in, i.e. I take everything I perceive and hear and see from others ‘under advisement’, then I talk to God about it personally, God talks back to me in physically inaudible conversations which I hear in the spirit of my mind and then I take what He tells me to His word, the scripture, to test whether or not what I am hearing is true…

This last point (when I follow this process), built on top of all the other points, then gives me my final ‘seal’ on discernment…

I desire to always yield whatever I believe to be true to the Lord and let Him make the final decision on what I believe to be true as ultimately only He knows what is true, only He knows the hearts of every human being on the planet and all the ‘intuition’ which He gives us comes from Him…

But Jesus, on His part, was not entrusting Himself to them, for He knew all men, and because He had no need that anyone should testify concerning man, for He Himself knew what was in man. (John 2:24-25 NASB)

As enabled by the Lord, I have been growing in this understanding, this decision-making process and even though the desired outcome is that I always willingly hand over these ‘final decisions’ to the Lord, I still involve myself in the preceding process (as described earlier in the post) so that when these decisions are finally made (situation by situation, issue by issue, or topic by topic) I can then ‘own’ them as my own and live with them ‘come what may’…

My prayer for us all is that we will all find increasing freedom in discernment as the Lord leads us – that He will fill us with His discernment so that we all may know the truth and be set free by the truth – In Jesus Name… 🙂

Ps. There is a spiritual gift of “…discerning of spirits…” (1 Corinthians 12:10 KJV) but that isn’t what I’m talking about in this post.  I believe that would be a separate topic. 🙂

Personality…

Over the last few days, I’ve been delving into the topic of personality and want to discuss how personality fits in with all the ‘rest of us’ in terms of our make-up as people…

This is just a discussion of what I’m learning and also a download of what I’ve observed throughout my experience of life to date…

I strongly believe that every person has a unique personality given to them by God…

Recently my oldest son and I were studying human meiosis as part of his Biology exam preparation…

Homologous pairs and crossing over were two key topics and we watched some YouTube videos to endeavour to get some understanding of what might be going on there…

I believe that our personalities come from that process – what we receive from our parents – and that God is highly involved in that process and what we end up inheriting by way of personality from our parents…

Personality is amoral (i.e. neither moral nor immoral)…

There is nothing sinful about personality…

When we sinned in the Garden of Eden our personalities didn’t become sinful…

Personality is neither right nor wrong…

There are no wrong personalities…

Personality is how we view the world and behave on the inside without any outside influence or conditioning…

It is our style or our way of expressing ourselves or ordering our thoughts or responding to situations…

What we do with our personalities, i.e. whether we are true to them, or express them, or hide them, or mask them, or deny them or try to change them, suppress them, be someone else, those things can either be right or wrong, i.e. sinful if we repress or suppress our personalities and try to be something we’re not, as that is not being transparent…

In terms of personality, we are not all the same…

We are not ‘cookie-cutter’ clones…

Even as those of us who know the Lord and have received the Holy Spirit, Jesus and the Father who live in us, even we, are not ‘cookie-cutter’ clone Christians…

When we receive the Holy Spirit, Jesus and the Father we don’t lose our personality…

That would be like God giving each person a uniqueness (an amoral uniqueness) and then taking it away from them when they came to know Him…

This would be counterproductive for God…

Every snowflake is unique (this is a scientific fact)…

Every person is also unique (we are fearfully and wonderfully made)…

Psychologists have studied people’s behaviour and mental processes and come up with various ways of categorizing personality traits and personality types…

Just recently I came across one personality type from one of the categorizations on YouTube called the ‘INFJ’ and watched a video on it and was quite taken by how similar to myself the description seemed to be…

Since then I’ve watched quite a few more videos on this personality type to delve further into it…

This particular way of categorizing personalities seems to talk about ‘preferences’ of how different people view the world…

I don’t really have an opinion on that presently – it’s been an interesting study but that’s about all I can say about that – I seem to be very similar to the ‘INFJ’ characteristics which other people who view themselves as being ‘INFJ’ are identifying but I don’t feel that a label of ‘INFJ’ can describe me…

There are parts of my personality which don’t perfectly fit within what I’ve heard that description to be to date although that description does appear to fit me better than any of the other 15 descriptions in that particular model (or categorization system) for working out personality types…

So, I believe we’re each given our personalities by our parents (it’s very possible that some of the characteristics of our personalities were recessive genes in our parents which didn’t get expressed in their personalities but which are now being expressed in ours) but somewhere along the line Adam and Eve were given all the personality traits by the Lord in the Garden of Eden when He created them and these have been spread throughout the rest of us over time and thus each and every one of us has a unique personality given to us by the Lord…

Why does the Lord give us unique personalities?

The Lord has a unique call on each of our lives…

Along with personalities, the Lord gives us giftings…

Giftings are different from personalities…

You could have the same gifting as someone else but express that same gifting through your different personalities and although the result is technically the same, perhaps you will reach those who resonate with your personality or expression and someone else will reach those who resonate with theirs (or even vice versa as sometimes we can receive things from those who are the exact opposite to us as when we hear it from them it strikes us as being true)…

Giftings might be (i) physical (to do with the body), (ii) mental, emotional & volitional (to do with the soul) or (iii) spiritual (to do with the spirit)…

God gives us all these gifts but these gifts do not define our personalities…

(i) Maybe you’re insanely good looking (think Zoolander)…

(ii) Maybe you have an incredible IQ or EQ or are incredibility self-motivated or self-disciplined…

(iii) Maybe you have the ability to heal people or raise them from the dead…

If, for example, you’re insanely good looking then that’s a physical gifting – praise God for that… 🙂

If, for example, you have an amazing IQ then that’s a gift you have in your soul – praise God for that… 🙂

If, for example, you have “gifts of healing” (1 Corinthians 12:9) or “the effecting of miracles” (1 Corinthians 12:10) – praise God for that… 🙂

There may be times when we’re operating in a spiritual gifting where the Holy Spirit temporarily ‘suspends’ or ‘puts on hold’ the way in which we would normally operate through our personalities to ‘get done’ what He needs to get done…

I have experienced this – certain times where I know it’s Him and He basically expresses Himself through me in a way that I would never express myself and it leaves me kind of shocked and taken aback but I know that it’s Him and that it’s OK, then that kind of subsides and I’m back with myself…

Now, I believe that the Lord lives through me – more and more and more – in a natural way every day…

I believe this because I experience His peace and His wisdom and His calm in certain situations which left to myself would stress me out…

I also find that I don’t get angry (about not getting what I want) anywhere near as much as I used to which is another sign that the Lord is living through me but all this is natural – just through my personality…

So what I’m saying is, and I first heard this through a friend many years ago when we were walking around town, that the Lord will use us but its totally natural, we don’t have to change the way we naturally function, i.e. our way of doing things, to have the Lord living through us…

In saying this again, I stress that I’m not talking about sin, I’m talking about our own unique way of expressing ourselves, the little quirks which make up who we are compared with who someone else is…

In some ways, it’s easiest for us to know that we’re operating out of our own personality when others comment on how they like it that we’re “comfortable in our own skin” or words to that effect, or when we observe others delighting in our particular expression of a thought as being authentic or unique or even cute through us…

I believe people are cute (no matter how old or young they are) when they are operating naturally through their God-given personality…

They’re not putting on a show, they’re not faking it, they’re not ‘in their head’ about how to come across to try and manipulate someone’s emotions or impressions of them – they’re just authentic…

For me, I find beauty in all people, through their personalities, no matter how sinful they may be…

I believe God does too…

He made all of our personalities, He made us all unique (like the snowflakes I mentioned earlier) and I believe He gets pleasure in seeing us enjoying expressing ourselves through our personalities without being ‘boxed in’ or encumbered by ‘social norms’ or ‘social expectations’ of what is ‘right’ and ‘proper’ in terms of personality…

Personality isn’t right or wrong, it’s unique…

The joy of living is getting to know the myriad personalities which the Lord has created and in knowing that each one is just a slice of who the Lord is Himself, as He is all those personalities rolled in One… 🙂

Righteousness exalts a nation…

Righteousness exalts a nation, But sin is a disgrace to any people. (Proverbs 14:34 NASB)

Blessed is the nation whose God is the LordThe people whom He has chosen for His own inheritance. (Psalm 32:12 NASB)

Father, in Jesus Name, we pray that many nations would become righteous nations through faith in Jesus Christ, the righteousness of faith in Jesus, which is the only way which any of us can become righteous in Your sight…

Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life; he who believes in Me will live even if he dies, and everyone who lives and believes in Me will never die. Do you believe this?” She said to Him, “Yes, Lord; I have believed that You are the Christ, the Son of God, even He who comes into the world.” (John 11:25-27 NASB)

Who is the one who overcomes the world, but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God? (1 John 5:5 NASB)

We pray that many nations would become blessed by the Lord through faith in Jesus Christ…

We ask for the salvation of many nations, to all nations which turn in faith to Jesus Christ, we ask for Your covering of, “Love covers a multitude of sins” to be over all nations which turn in faith to Jesus Christ, that all those nations whose citizens are saved would be covered by His Banner over them which is Love…

Above all, keep fervent in your love for one another, because love covers a multitude of sins. (1 Peter 4:8 NASB)

“He has brought me to his banquet hall, And his banner over me is love. (Song of Solomon 2:4 NASB)

We pray that there would be no condemnation on these nations which turn to Jesus Christ in faith for salvation and that Your Protection, Your Shield, would be over these nations to protect them from anything, any weapon formed against them, any accusation made against them, from the enemy…

For the Lord God is a sun and shield; The Lord gives grace and glory; No good thing does He withhold from those who walk uprightly. Lord of hosts, How blessed is the man who trusts in You! (Psalm 84:11-12 NASB)

“In righteousness you will be established; You will be far from oppression, for you will not fear; And from terror, for it will not come near you. If anyone fiercely assails you it will not be from Me. Whoever assails you will fall because of you. Behold, I Myself have created the smith who blows the fire of coals And brings out a weapon for its work; And I have created the destroyer to ruin. No weapon that is formed against you will prosper; And every tongue that accuses you in judgment you will condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LordAnd their vindication is from Me,” declares the Lord. (Isaiah 54:14-17 NASB)

Let Your Protection be over all these nations and let them grow and flourish in peace under Your Protection…

Let the Knowledge of God multiply in all these nations who have been chosen by God for salvation through faith in Jesus Christ…

Let the Knowledge of God fill the entire earth as the waters cover the sea and let every nation praise You, let every single person in every single nation praise You and worship You from their place – let Your Salvation, Your Holy Spirit fill the hearts of every single person in the whole world – let them all praise You, let them all come to know You as Saviour and Lord – let them all be filled with Your Holy Spirit and let them all be saved and grow more and more and more to greater and greater and greater maturity in You – let the Holy Spirit live “without measure” (John 3:34 NASB) through every single person alive on this planet in Jesus Name I pray and let those chosen for salvation stand strong in ever-increasing measure until You come again to earth to reign Lord after the time of the end where the power of the Saints is broken as Your word states, in Jesus Name…

“For the earth will be filled With the knowledge of the glory of the LORD, As the waters cover the sea. (Habakkuk 2:14 NASB)

Let the peoples praise You, O God; Let all the peoples praise You. Let the nations be glad and sing for joy; For You will judge the peoples with uprightness And guide the nations on the earth. Selah. Let the peoples praise You, O God; Let all the peoples praise You. (Psalm 67:3-5 NASB)

The LORD will be terrifying to them, for He will starve all the gods of the earth; and all the coastlands of the nations will bow down to Him, everyone from his own place. (Zephaniah 2:11 NASB)

“It will come about after this That I will pour out My Spirit on all mankind; And your sons and daughters will prophesy, Your old men will dream dreams, Your young men will see visions. Even on the male and female servants I will pour out My Spirit in those days. (Joel 2:28-29 NASB)

I heard the man dressed in linen, who was above the waters of the river, as he raised his right hand and his left toward heaven, and swore by Him who lives forever that it would be for a time, times, and half a time; and as soon as they finish shattering the power of the holy people, all these events will be completed. (Daniel 12:7 NASB)

“And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write: He who is holy, who is true, who has the key of David, who opens and no one will shut, and who shuts and no one opens, says this: ‘I know your deeds. Behold, I have put before you an open door which no one can shut, because you have a little power, and have kept My word, and have not denied My name. Behold, I will cause those of the synagogue of Satan, who say that they are Jews and are not, but lie—I will make them come and bow down at your feet, and make them know that I have loved you. Because you have kept the word of My perseverance, I also will keep you from the hour of testing, that hour which is about to come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth. I am coming quickly; hold fast what you have, so that no one will take your crown. He who overcomes, I will make him a pillar in the temple of My God, and he will not go out from it anymore; and I will write on him the name of My God, and the name of the city of My God, the new Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven from My God, and My new name. He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.’ (Revelation 3:7-13 NASB)

So let it be, Amen and Amen…

Rugby Australia versus God…

https://caldronpool.com/rugby-australia-says-the-bible-itself-is-a-problem/?fbclid=IwAR0vWwaa-jxQ2IhDjtsKSCp1CDsKfcmZYf38xO0iZRgdmyv5Pevpe7H3S0I

Finally, the truth has come out…

It’s been a while coming…

We’ve been fed so many lies by the Australian Media…

We’ve heard so many lies from Rugby Australia…

But now we know the truth…

The Chairman. Q. Ms Castle, what if Mr Folau had photocopied passages from the Bible and simply posted that on his social media pages, would that have caused a problem for you?

A. I think it depends on which ones he – which pages he photocopied.

Q. If he photocopied the passages that are referred to in the posts, would that have caused a problem for you?

A. Yes, it would have.

Here’s the scripture passage which Israel’s post was based on…

Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God. Such were some of you; but you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our God. (1 Corinthians 6:9-11 NASB)

Thus, Rugby Australia’s problem was with the scripture, not Israel Folau…

Furthermore, Rugby Australia’s problem is now with God Himself…

God wrote the scripture and this is His warning for anyone who would take away from the words of His Book…

and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God will take away his part from the tree of life and from the holy city, which are written in this book. (Revelation 22:19 NASB)

An incredibly sober and terrifying warning which honestly none of us would ever want to be on the wrong end of, I know for myself that I would never want to be on the wrong end of that warning…

Basically, a warning two verses before the end of the entire Book, that if anyone tries to take away from His word then they will not be spending eternity with Him in the New Jerusalem (Revelation 21:2 NASB)…

The only remaining option is that they’ll be spending eternity in the lake of fire…

And if anyone’s name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire. (Revelation 20:15 NASB)

Thus, if I was Rugby Australia I would be immediately (a) repenting to God for dishonouring His word, (b) apologizing to Israel Folau for discriminating against him on religious grounds by terminating his contract and (c) reinstating and making appropriate restitution to Israel Folau…

If I was Rugby Australia, I would be doing those things right now before it’s too late… 😦
