Satan HATES You

Image: Pixabay.com

Yes, Satan hates you. He hates me, he hates you, he hates everyone. "The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly," says Jesus in John 10:10 (KJV).

Satan can war against you. But, honestly, the main way he gets people is the safest road to hell. “Indeed the safest road to Hell is the gradual one--the gentle slope, soft underfoot, without sudden turnings, without milestones, without signposts,...Your affectionate uncle, Screwtape,” C.S. Lewis wrote in the Screwtape Letters.

Satan's biggest weapon is Deception. 

Eve was deceived in the garden of Eden by Satan. (1 Timothy 2:4). Adam sinned and knew exactly what he was doing. But, notice how the first sin by man was due to deception. Satan told Eve she would become like God. It's in Genesis 3:1-7. He told her she would be like God and know good and evil. He further told her she wouldn't die if she ate the apple. Both were deception. If Eve ate the apple, she would be sinning. God can't sin so that was a lie. Satan's second deception was, if won't kill you. Yes, it did. Eve was perfect until she ate of the apple and never would've known pain, misery or death. So, yes, eating of the apple did kill her, just not right then. But, it did take her perfection away immediately. After Adam ate the apple, both Eve and he discovered they were naked and clothed themselves with leaves. Until they sinned, both hung around Eden butt naked without a care in the world, and no shame. In fact, once God came to them, He asked, "who told you that you were naked?" (Gen 3:11)

In Matthew 24:4-31, Jesus talked about the last days and used the word "deceive" several times. Deception is Satan's greatest weapon. Satan whispers in our ears, "do that. It won't hurt." If we listen, soon we are into all kinds of sin. 

You ever heard someone say, "I wouldn't do that if I were you." 

But, Satan's deception is two-fold. Not only does he lie to you about something like he did Eve, he tells you the punishment for doing won't be anything really, therefore, massaging your pride. Satan's sin was pride and the Bible says, "Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall." (Revelation 16:18) (KJV) So, not only does Satan tell you do something with deceiving lips, he deceives you into telling you the cost of the sin won't be a big deal. "So, you cheat on your wife? Plenty of people do it. Keep it a secret and no one will ever know." Hmm... but, who exactly does know? Well, you do.

Basically, Satan lies to us with the temptation and the price will we have to pay, because we are ignorant. Ignorance is where he works. Read your Bible, study it and meditate on it. Ever notice how the ignorant are so easily deceived? The same is true for Christians. The more you know the Bible, the less ignorant you become, and the less likely to be deceived. 

If Deception is Satan's greatest weapon, Ignorance is our greatest weakness.

A man killed someone and got away with it. Years later, he went to the cops and confessed. The cop said, "why confess? You got away with it." The main replied, "it was the getting away with it part I couldn't live with." The problem is you have to live with it. The murderer couldn't. It ate him up inside knowing what he did. Satan doesn't care. He doesn't have to live with your sin—You do!

Satan and his ilk hate your guts. Why? He's the opposite of Jesus. Jesus is love. Satan is hate. Jesus is goodness. Satan is evil incarnate. Jesus is gentle and meek in spirit. Satan is cruel and a taskmaster. His yoke is brutal. But, Jesus said, "my yoke is easy." (Matthew 11:28-30) What is a yoke? A yoke is what they used to put on oxen so they could plow the fields. Jesus wants not to add to your burdens. Satan will add all kinds of things to your burdens–sin being one of them. But, Jesus takes away the sin of the world. (John 1:29) Jesus removes your burdens and takes them onto Himself.

"Let no one say when he is tempted, “I am tempted by God”; for God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does He Himself tempt anyone. But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed. Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death. Do not be deceived, my beloved brethren. Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning. Of his own will begat he us with the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures." (James 1:13-18) (KJV)

God will never tempt you. Satan does the tempting, just as he did Jesus in the wilderness. Satan tempts your lust. And, you give in to temptation, not anyone else. You are responsible. Satan offers you only sin and death. Jesus, on the other hand, says, "And we, out of all creation, became his prized possession." (James 1:18 NLT) The Holy Spirit inside you will help you resist temptation! "When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD shall lift up a standard against him." (Isaiah 59:19) (KJV)

Do you have the Holy Spirit? See: https://www.transgenderchurch.com/2020/10/the-baptism-of-holy-spirit.html

YOU NEED THE HOLY SPIRIT BAPTISM! Being a Christian without the Holy Spirit is being a soldier without fatigues, weapons and a helmet!

You are God's prized possession and Satan HATES YOU! Honestly, has Satan ever done anything for you? Really? Nope, not one thing! Jesus, on the other hand, has paved the way for us with complete and utter victory over everything, especially Satan and his ilk. When Jesus died on the Cross, he took away the sin of the world. We only have to repent and ask Jesus into our heart to be born again.

Do you know Jesus?

Well, it is easy to know him and experience his undying, unfathomable love and affection.

He came and died for you.

"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life." (John 3:16) (KJV)

There is no greater love than Jesus.

"Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends." (John 15:13) (KJV)

Accept Him today if you don't know him.

Sinner's Prayer

"Dear Lord Jesus, I know that I am a sinner, and I ask for Your forgiveness. I believe You died for my sins and rose from the dead. I turn from my sins and invite You to come into my heart and life. I want to trust and follow You as my Lord and Savior."

Now, go and tell someone and welcome to His Kingdom.

Amen and Hallelujah.

The Baptism of the Holy Spirit



Source: Pixabay

When a person gets saved, the Holy Spirit quickens the mortal body, "But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you." (Romans 8:11) (KJV)

The Holy Spirit is the one that gives salvation experiences and seals you. "In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise," (Ephesians 1:13) (KJV)

The Holy Spirit is in you when you get saved, but you have to accept Him.

The Holy Spirit is a Gift!

Jesus sent the Holy Spirit as a Comforter and He is Forever! 

"And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you." (John 14:16) (KJV)

The same Spirit Jesus was baptized with by John the Revelator, Jesus sent to ALL of us. The same Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead can dwell in you!

A prayer: "Jesus, thank you for the gift of the Holy Spirit. I welcome Him inside me to live with me forever and ever. I give you praise, honor and glory. Amen."

That's it!

Trust me, the Holy Spirit (next to Jesus, is my favorite words) will manifest himself to you. He's kind, sweet, long suffering, patient, loving, all the things Jesus and God the father is because He's an equal part of God. 

How do you know the Holy Spirit is in you? Well, I fell Him tingle my legs, cause my bones to vibrate in my legs (I love that one a lot), He can raise the hairs on your skin. Sometimes I feel like He is a Helmet on my head. He's totally cool and never means you any harm. That's why the Dove is how He came down to Jesus when Jesus was baptized by John the Baptist. He's the comforter Jesus sent. One of the coolest things He did was Anoint my eyelids. They tingled. Everyone is different so you might also feel heat like I do, and sometimes even cool heat (that one is neat). He can flash light in your eyes, He can give you dreams, and He can impart gifts of the Spirit (1 Cor. Chapter 12 details the 9 Gifts of the Spirit of Jesus). We will cover those in another sermon. 

And, honestly, He is Jesus's Spirit. I call Him that and He's not objected. I see it this way: Basically, Jesus went back to Heaven so he could send us His Spirit. You see, Jesus had the Holy Spirit all to Himself when He was on earth. But, when He went back to heaven, that released the Holy Spirit to come and live inside us. When you take your first breath out of the womb, who exactly do you think gives you that breath? That's the Holy Spirit. He's always been there, but, until you get saved, you just don't know it. (Romans 8:11)

And, He is Power! See: https://www.transgenderchurch.com/2020/08/the-power-inside-you.html

The Holy Spirit will lead you into ALL truths!

"Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come." (John 16:13) (KJV)

What does He talk about? Jesus is pretty much it. The Holy Spirit loves to talk about Jesus because Jesus is the Authority over everything, including sin, sickness, infirmity, the devil, the animals, the sea, the rain, and even death itself. When Jesus died on the cross and was resurrected from the dead by the Holy Spirit, the keys to death and hell became His domain.

Revelation 1:18: Jesus says, “I am the Living One; I was dead, and now look, I am alive for ever and ever! And I hold the keys of death and Hades.” Hades is hell.

If Satan tempts you, give him the Word of Truth (Scripture) in response as Jesus did in the wilderness. (Matthew 4:1-11)

IMPORTANT: If you don't know the Scripture to give, just say, "But he turned, and said unto Peter, Get thee behind me, Satan: thou art an offence unto me: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but those that be of men." (Matt 16:23) (KJV)

The Holy Spirit will bring Scripture to your mind. I don't know all these Scriptures so I let the Holy Spirit bring them to my mind. Trust me, I ain't writing this sermon, the Holy Spirit is. The Glory belongs to Jesus. 

The biggest thud of Scripture from the Holy Spirit I ever got was when I asked God if He could fix my car's air conditioner. The Holy Spirit quickly thundered it into my mind, "Nothing is impossible with God." (Luke 1:37) (Paraphrase) And, guess what? It has worked flawlessly ever since. My car is 19 years old and He knew I couldn't afford $500-1000 to fix it. So, He fixed it.

The Holy Spirit greatest fruit inside a believer is Love. He will lead you to love everybody. Why? God is Love. Jesus is Love. The Holy Spirit is Love. (1 John 4:7-21)

What does He look like?

One teen girl on Youtube said she saw the Holy Spirit and He looked like a mist and every so often His face would form and He looked like Jesus. I forget where the video is, but I've never forgotten what she said. I've seen a mist before and I'm sure that was Him. I just didn't realize it until I saw her video. But, the Holy Spirit loves to show you Jesus not Himself so if you see Him, feel a little special. 

The Holy Spirit will ALWAYS agree Jesus is Lord:

"Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.

2 Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God:

3 And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.

4 Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.

5 They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them."

(1 John 4:1-5) (KJV)

So, if you believe the Holy Spirit has told you something, you can try the spirit as the Scripture says above. Basically say, "Do you confess Jesus is come in the flesh?" If the Spirit says, "yes", you know it is of God. Anything else, rebuke it and don't listen to it.

Some things Christians are not supposed to do: divination, walk on coals of fire (Pass through fire.... see https://www.biblegateway.com/quicksearch/?quicksearch=%22pass+through+the+fire%22&qs_version=KJV), astrology, read your horoscope (it's of the devil, folks), get your palm read, witchcraft, consult a spiritualist (basically, they are all witches). You probably shouldn't even celebrate Halloween. It is paganism.

The best thing you can do is read your Bible and ask the Holy Spirit to show you everything. He loooooves to do that. In fact, the first book you should read as a new Christian is the Johns. That tells you all about Jesus and the love of Jesus.

Amen.

Jesus is the Sweetest Husband


"For thy Maker is thine husband; the Lord of hosts is his name; and thy Redeemer the Holy One of Israel; The God of the whole earth shall he be called." (Isaiah 54:5)

I've always wanted a husband. I didn't want sex, I wanted love. Like all women, I wanted to be chosen. The Bible says, "many are called, few are chosen." (Matthew 22:14) In the parable leading up to that Scripture, there's a man discovered not to have a wedding garment even though he's at the wedding feast. (Matthew 22:12) The king has his hands and feet bound and casts him into the outer darkness where there is weeping and gnashing of teeth, which represents hell. (Matthew 22:13) Then, Matthew 22:14 basically says, Jesus calls many, but few are chosen.

See more about this: https://www.thegospelcoalition.org/article/what-did-jesus-mean-by-many-are-called-but-few-are-chosen/

There is also the parable about the seed: "Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit." (John 12:24) (KJV) Basically, if you want life, you have to die to self and if you love the world (Satan's Kingdom), you won't have life. The "world" is sin.

Honestly, has Satan ever done anything for you? He hasn't done a thing for anyone. He HATES YOU! He comes only to kill, steal and destroy you. Unlike Satan, Jesus comes that we may have life and have life more abundantly. (John 10:10)

Jesus calls everyone to repentance, but only a few are chosen. Many love the world and don't want to give it up and die to self so they can have eternity, eternal life. But, a few are chosen and they will die to self, reject the world and get eternal life.

"A double minded man is unstable in all his ways." (James 1:8) (KJV) Being double-minded is one foot in the church and the other foot in the world. And, there are the lukewarm Christians who are never hot and never cold. Nothing moves them. They have no fire, they have no passion. I say the are double-minded. Lukewarm people aren't change agents or good soldiers, they just do what they do to get by. They are adrift at sea and move whichever way the wind blows. Jesus hates this. We are to be his servants, even though he values us more than that as Brides.

And, lukewarm is not enough.

Jesus wants you hot, or cold. “I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot; I wish that you were cold or hot. So because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will vomit you out of My mouth” (Revelation 3:15-16). If you are lukewarm, complacent and just there, or double-minded, you have no value and He'll spew you out of his mouth. Jesus wants you all in and for Him, or against Him.

http://www.reenactingtheway.com/blog/i-wish-you-were-cold-or-hot-not-lukewarm-doesnt-mean-jesus-prefers-you-hate-him-instead-of-live-on-the-fence6135488

I love a hot coffee and I love a ice cold soda. Don't you? How about a hot tea? A lukewarm coffee is disgusting. I'm sure I could drink an ice cold coffee. But, what do you do with a coffee that is lukewarm? You stick in the microwave and make it piping hot again. You don't drink and spew it out of your mouth.

Jesus wants sheep that go forth and conquer in His glorious name. And, we are more than conquerors. "Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us." (Romans 8:35-37) (KJV) Jesus love is always with us even in trials, tribulation, persecution, famine, peril or sword. Satan can kill the body, but He can't touch our soul. Only God can destroy the soul and cast someone into hell. "And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell." (Matthew 10:28) (KJV)

In all my years of searching, I wanted a Husband. Don't all women? I never thought my Husband would be Jesus and Jesus alone. I thought I'd marry someone and have that kind of life. Instead, God had other plans, called me to be a Nun (nuns are married to God and no other). I'm a transgender woman, but I'm a nun. I have a husband, His name is Jesus. You can have all I have, too. If you are male and not really sure you can love Jesus as a bride loves a husband, think of Him as King. God understands that. Jesus is a dude. Most dudes don't like to think of a guy as their Husband (no sex involved), even though Jesus clearly is that. He's cool with the King thing since He's the King of kings.

But, even if you are a guy, I challenge you to think of Jesus as your Husband. There's no sexual thing to it. And, hey, there is no gender in heaven. We'll all be Brides there.

"Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart." (Psalms 37:4) (KJV) I delight in Jesus, God and the Holy Spirit. I love all three. I thought my desire was for a lover, and I ended getting the King and kings and Lord of lords as a Husband.

"For thy Maker is thine husband; the LORD of hosts is his name; and thy Redeemer the Holy One of Israel; The God of the whole earth shall he be called." (Isaiah 54:5) (KJV)

My life changed when Jesus called me Rachel in a dream. A few months later, I dedicated myself to God solely (I was already saved) and promised there would be no other. I dedicated myself as a nun and the rest is history. I have no desire for an earthly lover. None at all. And, you know what? Jesus gets sweeter by the day, as a Husband should. And, if you need sex like I do as a hypersexual Bipolar, there's an Anointing for that. Best sex ever for me just by myself. I ain't kidding. He said He'd supply all my needs. (Phillipians 4:19) I called Him on that one. Hehe (Note: Just ask God for Anointed sex. If you're married, He can bless you both there, too. Just be open to it and ask Him for it. If you're single, it's Holy masturbation. It's why I wear glasses. LOLOLOLOL)

Just be all-in and not sitting on the fence. Basically, don't be lukewarm. Be passionate about what you believe. Jesus has passion. He wants passion. I love Him passionately. Yes, I feel romantic love toward God. No, He demands passion. Luckily, I'm Bipolar, which means I'm either hot or cold. I don't know lukewarm. LOL I'm either all-in, or I couldn't care less about something. Yeah, I have days when there's no fire. The Anointing is always there, but those are days of rest where I just rest in the arms of Jesus, my Husband. Otherwise, I want to conquer the world so I have lots of crowns to lay at my Husband's feet one day. Those crowns, except the crown of life, aren't for us to adorn ourselves with. They are given to us that earn them by being obedient vessels for the Holy Spirit to lay at Jesus's feet at the marriage supper.

Honestly, I want to be a woman after God's own heart. David was that. I'm definitely in love with Him. If I get there, I'll be a happy girl and a happy nun.

Do you know Jesus?

Well, it is easy to know him and experience his undying, unfathomable love and affection.

He came and died for you.

"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life." (John 3:16) (KJV)

There is no greater love than Jesus.

"Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends." (John 15:13) (KJV)

Accept Him today if you don't know him.

Sinner's Prayer

"Dear Lord Jesus, I know that I am a sinner, and I ask for Your forgiveness. I believe You died for my sins and rose from the dead. I turn from my sins and invite You to come into my heart and life. I want to trust and follow You as my Lord and Savior."

Now, go and tell someone and welcome to His Kingdom.

The Holy Spirit Baptism is a gift. Just pray, "God, I accept the Holy Spirit as a gift and welcome Him into my being. Thank and praise you Jesus for the Holy Spirit."

Amen and Hallelujah.

Jesus Christ

The greatest man in history is Jesus.



He had no servants, yet they called him master. He had no degree, yet they called him teacher. He had no medicines, yet they called him healer. He had no army, yet kings feared him. He won no military battles, yet he conquered the world. He committed no crime, yet they crucified him. He was buried in a tomb, Yet He lives Today.
Amen.

The Power Inside You


The Power Inside You

The Title sounds like some New Age Mysticism, doesn't it? Well, it is not because the Power is not your power. It is the Holy Spirit that lives inside a Holy Ghost, Fire baptized Christian. Think about that. The Power of God rests inside you. God lives inside you. Jesus's Spirit, the Holy Spirit, rests inside you. The same Anointing Jesus got when he was baptized by John the Baptist rests inside you.

Jesus said we'd do greater works than Him. "Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father." (John 14:12) (KJV) Basically, if you believe on Jesus, greater works shall you do because Jesus takes your prayers to the Father. Not for your glory, but His Glory. God loves a willing vessel. He can do wonders through a willing vessel.

Honestly, none of us can perform miracles. We have our God-given talents, but even they are God-given. But, when you are a Christian and Baptized with the Holy Spirit, the power of Almighty God rests inside you waiting to do good works, greater works than Jesus did, through you.

The same power than burned the bush but did not consume it that Moses saw, the same power that gives the breath of life to all life, the same power that brought the rains to flood the earth in Noah's time, the same power that raised Lazarus from the dead, the same power that rose Christ from the dead and ascended Him into heaven, and the list goes on, lives inside you.

I think of the Holy Spirit as Jesus's Spirit. It's just easier to think of God that way. "And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters." (Genesis 1:2) (KJV) God is the father, Jesus is the Christ, and the Holy Spirit is the power. All three work together in perfect harmony and all are one, but the one is three. The Godhead seems complicated to fathom with our feeble human minds so I just see the Holy Ghost as Jesus's Spirit. As far as I'm aware, the Holy Spirit seems okay with me seeing Him that way.

Think about WHO lives inside you: The Holy Spirit. We know God is everywhere, is all knowing, all powerful. And, Satan and his ilk, are stuck being at one place at one time. So, therefore, Satan and his minions can't be all powerful, all knowing, or present everywhere like God is. Satan has power, but it is limited, and limited to where he is. God, on the other hand, has NO limits. God can read your mind, Satan can't. Jesus is in heaven interceding on our behalf, but yet He's right there in the same room you are. So is God the Father. But, the Holy Spirit actually lives inside all believers.

You are only limited by your knowledge of the Bible. Basically, what you've read and studied. And, of course, when Scripture pops into your head, you know that's the work of the Holy Spirit, right? He brings them to your remembrance. I actually think, but can't prove, our minds were designed with the Word of God in mind. In other words, Scripture has a natural place in our heads and our hearts.

In Hebrew 10:16-17, it says, "This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them; And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more." (KJV)

We supposed to keep His word close to us, etch them on our hearts. "My son, keep my words, and lay up my commandments with thee. Keep my commandments, and live; and my law as the apple of thine eye. Bind them upon thy fingers, write them upon the table of thine heart." (Proverbs 7:1-3) (KJV)

In the old testament, individuals had to write them on the tablet of their hearts, BUT, in the New Testament, God writes them on our hearts himself. Embrace the Word, and God will write it on your heart Himself. That's the Holy Spirit at work.

Even then, if we are only willing to get the fact the awesome power of God lives within us, we really can do anything if we let God do His work.

So, when you pray for someone, realize God is right there hearing your prayer, Jesus is taking it to the Father (John 14:12) and God is answering at the speed of thought.

Speed of thought: God does everything by the speed of thought. God is not limited to time, space travel, an airplane ride. He's literally everywhere. We can't even comprehend God's being. He's his own dimension while we live in the physical and angels, demons, fallen angels and Satan lives in the spiritual realm. God resides in all three. In some religions, God is seen as part of the universe. But, in Christianity, God created the universe and is separate from it, but is everywhere at the same time. If you were to travel to Mars, God would be there, with you on the ship and still back on earth. Only God can do that. Angels, as powerful as they are, are limited to being at one place at one time. Same with Satan and his idiot crew.

Anyway, think about WHO lives inside you when you pray (all wars are fought in prayer) and what He can accomplish through you. The battle is the Lord's, but prayer is our weapon along with our knowledge of God's Word.

And, Who is the Word? "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God." (John 1:1) (KJV) Jesus is the Word. The Bible is your hand, or on your phone or on your computer, is Jesus in written form. That's why the Bible is alive, and Scriptures can pop off the page at you.

"But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God." (Matt 4:4) (KJV) The Bible is that Word. Live by it. The more you know, the better you are.

The Truth About Climate Change https://www.transgenderchurch.com/2020/08/what-have-we-done-to-earth-truth-about.html

It Is Well by Kristene DiMarco


What have we done to the Earth? The Truth About Climate Change



From Pixabay.com

Where do they get the "Mother Earth" stuff from?

I was listening to Kristene DiMarco's "It is well" and God snapped some thoughts into my head as I read this comment: "The rocks are literally crying out, in earthquakes they are crying out" by user JoAldrige.

The Holy Spirit made me remember "Let the people praise thee, O God; let all the people praise thee. Then shall the earth yield her increase; and God, even our own God, shall bless us." (Psalms 67:5-6) (KJV)

I guess the pagan's get "mother earth" from what the Holy Spirit impressed David, he didn't write all the Psalms but lets assume he wrote this one shall we, to call earth "her." So, earth is a her. The King James Version, the closest to the original Hebrew, says her. Just don't take it to the extreme as pagans do and worship her, the earth, as "Mother earth."

At any rate, the Scripture says for the earth to yield her increase, God has to be praised by people. Conversely, look at how sin is so prevalent today. Society is downright wicked.

How does wickedness affect the earth?

It affects it greatly. Just as praise can cause the earth to bloom and lead to a bigger harvest, sin leads to the opposite. I was listening to a preacher and she said as sin has increased the topsoil we use to grow our food has shrunk from feet of good topsoil to just inches. This has happened over a hundred years or so.

Check out this article on top soil. It says we could run out of topsoil in 60 years and "But thanks to conventional farming practices, nearly half of the most productive soil has disappeared in the world in the last 150 years, threatening crop yields and contributing to nutrient pollution, dead zones and erosion. In the US alone, soil on cropland is eroding 10 times faster than it can be replenished." https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2019/may/30/topsoil-farming-agriculture-food-toxic-america

Farming isn't the problem. Yes, fields need to rest and rejuvenate just like we need to do, BUT, the Bible says clearly when God is praised, the earth yield's her increase. Therefore, the real reason our top soil is disappearing is the collective sin of the world.

God has a solution...

"If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land." (2 Chron. 7:14)

Notice the last part—"heal their land." If people turn from sin and seek Him, God will heal the land. This makes our climate change accords absolutely worthless without turning to the creator who created the earth in the first place. Earth is a living thing and misuse, pollution hurts it, but what really hurts earth is sin.

God can control the weather as these Scriptures talk about: https://www.biblestudytools.com/topical-verses/bible-verses-about-rain/

Make God mad by violating his commandments, He'll withhold the rain, even stop the harvest.

The simple truth is: God can do anything.

Check out this one: "Therefore the showers have been withheld, and no spring rains have fallen. Yet you have the brazen look of a prostitute; you refuse to blush with shame." (Jeremiah 3:3)

Clearly, God withheld the rain because of sin.

The real truth of Climate Change, all the earthquakes, the volcanos, is sin. Jesus said we would see these things in the last days, but the reason we see them is sin is great, wickedness abounds.

"For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places." (Matthew 24:7) I talk about this here: https://www.transgenderchurch.com/2020/07/2020-beginning-of-sorrows.html

The reason we are having so many earthquakes in the last days is "the rocks are literally crying out, in earthquakes they are crying out" (user JoAldrige on YouTube).

Understand Climate Change yet?

The earth is sick from all the sin and she is crying out to God for relief!!!!!!!!!!!

But, yet, mankind thinks they can solve "Climate Change." Only if they turn to God and turn from their wicked ways will God heal the earth. Man can be a good steward, but he can't fix a thing without God.

2020: The Beginning of Sorrows




Watch the Above Video...

This passage of Scripture describes people as they are today...

"This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away." (2 Timothy 3:1-5) (KJV)

Look how people post selfies and look for approval and have the need to go viral? Look how some are boasters of their abilities constantly, so proud of themselves. Look at how narcissistic (in love with self) the world has become. Look how Christians are murdered in some parts of the world and not tolerated in other parts. Anyone can see this in the world.

This passage of Scripture definitely is what is happening in the world...

3 And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?

4 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.

5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.

6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.

7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.
(Pestilences is diseases - think AIDS, Swine Flu, and now Covid-19)

8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.

9 Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake.

10 And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.

11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.

12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.

13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.

(Matthew 24:3-13)

Be watchful. "The virgins are all trimming their wicks," (Matthew 25:1-13) Since Jesus returns in the Rapture for His Bride, we should all be as virgins all trimming their wicks, being watchful for "And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh." (Luke 21:28) (KJV)

If you are not a Christian, doesn't this all sound scary? It should sound scary to you. The Great Tribulation will usher in the One World Government and the Anti-Christ and the Judgement of God on the world. It will be a horrible time that we really can't even imagine even though Revelations tells us what happens.

YOU. DON'T. WANT. TO. BE. HERE!

Do you know Jesus?

Well, it is easy to know him and experience his undying, unfathomable love and affection.

He came and died for you.

"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life." (John 3:16) (KJV)

There is no greater love than Jesus.

"Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends." (John 15:13) (KJV)

Accept Him today if you don't know him.

Sinner's Prayer

"Dear Lord Jesus, I know that I am a sinner, and I ask for Your forgiveness. I believe You died for my sins and rose from the dead. I turn from my sins and invite You to come into my heart and life. I want to trust and follow You as my Lord and Savior."

Now, go and tell someone and welcome to His Kingdom.

Amen and Hallelujah.

God WANTS to Heal You



God WANTS to Heal You

Yes, God WANTS to Heal you of sickness and infirmities.

Before we begin, let me pray this over you, "God, grant the individual reading this sermon the ears to hear and the wisdom to understand it. God, I give you all the honor and praise and thanksgiving in the name of Jesus. Amen."

"Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted." (Isaiah 53:4) (KJV)

The Berean Study Bible translates the same Scripture as, "Surely He took on our infirmities and carried our sorrows;" (Isaiah 53:4) Infirmity means "physical or mental weakness."

But, on the Cross, Jesus bore our griefs, our sorrows, our infirmities...

HE

BORE

EVERYTHING!

Where does sickness come from? Adam and Eve, before their fall, knew no sickness or infirmities. Until the sinned, they were flawless and perfect. They were eternal. We really have no idea how long they lived and thrived in the garden of Eden. They could've been there thousands and thousands of years.

But, sickness comes from sin. Who sinned first? It was Lucifer. His sin was pride. He thought he was equal to God because he was so beautiful. God called Satan's sin, "the mystery of iniquity." (2 Thess 2:7) I'm sure God knows the mystery, but in the Bible, He doesn't share it with us.

But, Satan's sin brought forth iniquity into the world, and Adam and Eve's sin brought forth our suffering and our sickness. You didn't get cancer due to your own sin, but you got cancer because of sin in the world.

Anyway, off to healing....

I was watching Joseph Prince and his wife was telling how she was healed completely of what she had. I don't remember what it was but it was serious. This is what she did: she imagined Jesus on the Cross at Calvary and she imagined giving her ailment to Him as He hung there on the cross. After she did this, for several weeks if I remember correctly, she was healed. Praise the Lord Jesus Christ.

Amazing concept, isn't it?

Here is the Scriptural basis for it.

"But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed." (Isaiah 53:5) (KJV)

In that Scripture's case, people were healed by the promise of Jesus being crucified and raised from the dead. It hadn't happened yet, but they were being healed totally by something that hadn't happened yet.

Isn't that simply amazing?

It gets better.

"Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed." (1 Peter 2:24) (KJV)

In the New Testament, after Jesus was crucified and raised from the dead, we were no longer healed by the promise of Jesus's sacrifice. In fact, ready for it?, we were healed! In Isaiah, they were healed in the present tense or "are." In 1 Peter, we were healed because of the past tense or "were."

In other words, Jesus already healed you on the Cross. You just need to claim, accept it!

Hallelujah!

No matter what you have, Jesus already paid for your healing. You just have to give it to Him by imagining Him taking it while He was on the Cross at Calvary just like Pastor Prince's wife did.

Therefore, any healing you need, from cancer to AIDS to a broken finger to even Herpes (Jesus took everything on the Cross) to drug addiction to depression to alcoholism, give it to Jesus on the Cross, let Him take it from you and be healed in the name of Jesus.

I remember this preacher once, if I remember correctly, said he went to heaven and saw this river of blood that was huge. He asked why it was so huge and they, forget who they were, told him, "That is the blood of Jesus that takes away the sin of the world." Honestly, one day, I want to see that river. It must be something.

Another way to look at healing...

What is so powerful?

Jesus's Blood!

There was a concept I saw that talked about regularly partaking in communion–the blood and body of Christ–to heal you and ward off sickness. Jesus's blood washes away all sin. (Ephesians 1:7). Our sins are covered by the blood of Jesus Christ He shed on the cross. The concept was communion heals us. Jesus told us to take communion in remembrance of Him. "And when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me. After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me. For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew the Lord's death till he come." (1 Cor 11:24-26) (KJV)

Did you really get what Jesus said about communion? His body was broken for us, his blood is the new testament–our new covenant with God.

His body took our sin, His blood was shed to cover it. In other words, His body took our infirmities and sickness and His blood covers our sin.

If His Blood gets rid of sin, doesn't that also means His Blood can cure our diseases?

Yep, it does.

When you ask God to heal you, perhaps the best way to show your faith for that healing is to take communion! Pour a little cup of something to symbolize his blood and take a cracker or something to symbolize his body and take communion knowing full well you are saying to God, "I'm doing this in remembrance of Jesus and to heal me of my <disease>."

Just make sure you repent before you do...

"For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew the Lord's death till he come. Wherefore whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of the Lord, unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord. But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup. For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord's body. For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep." (1 Corinthians 11:24-30) (KJV)

"The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world." (1 John 1:29)

Since Jesus takes away the sin of the world, He surely can cure your infirmity!

See, God wants to heal you. Jesus already did provide for your healing. (Isaiah 53:5, 1 Peter 2:24)

All you really do is have to believe.

You need faith, but it is not difficult, according to Jesus: "And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you." (Matt 17:20)

All you need is the faith of a grain of mustard seed. A mustard seed is about 1 to 2 millimeters in size so a grain of it is really, really small. So, see? You have at least that measure of faith. And, if you want more, ask Jesus for the Gift of Faith. It is one of the nine gifts of the Holy Spirit.

See: https://www.bible-knowledge.com/gifts-of-the-holy-spirit/ for the Gifts of the Holy Spirit.

See: https://www.bible-knowledge.com/fruits-of-the-holy-spirit/ for the Fruits of the Holy Spirit.

The more Bible you read and understand, the more faith you shall have. "So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God." (Romans 10:17)

And, as always, ask God for wisdom, which He gives liberally and without finding fault. "If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him." (James 1:5) (KJV)

God wants you wise not ignorant. Ignorance is where Satan operates so God wants you wise.

Satan doesn't attack you based on your past, but on the weight of the Spirit (Holy Spirit) that you carry. -Juanita Bynum

The Spirit Realm is more REAL than the physical realm we live in.

Why?

We are stuck to exist in the physical realm, but Angels, demons, Satan, fallen angels can move in both the spiritual world and the physical.

Notice how I didn't mention God.

God exists outside both the physical and spirit realms. He created both. God also lives outside of time. Time does not affect God. God, however, exists equally in all three realms, including the realm He originally came from. The Bible says nothing was created but by Him and Jesus says He's the beginning and the ending, the Alpha and Omega. (Revelation 22:13)

Basically, God is the only all-powerful being that can even exist. Satan is NOTHING compared to Jesus Christ.

So, you realize the Holy Spirit that lives inside you gives dominion over the spirit realm and the physical realm?

Most Christians don't realize their dominion. We have dominion over the animals, the plants, the earth and Satan and all his ilk.

Satan lives in perpetual fear that you will realize just how much dominion you have over him. You have to admit Satan has power, but you also must realize Greater is He (Holy Spirit) that lives in you than he than lives in the world. I John 4:4. The Bible also says you can tread on serpents and scorpions and none can hurt you. Luke 10:19-21.

You have limits only imposed on yourself because you don't know the Scriptures. That's why many don't know their dominion over Satan himself.

John 14:12 even quotes Jesus as saying we can do greater works than Him because He goes to the father.

Basically, YOU are meant to do greater works than Jesus and tread on serpents and scorpions just like Jesus did.

Don't fear the devil, because, the truth is, he's scared of you realizing you have dominion over him, and exercising it.

And, since we have dominion over Satan, we also have dominion over sickness...when you pray for someone, realize you are exercising your dominion and expect God to heal them.

Yeah, it really is that simple. Just believe it.

So, therefore, Jesus already made provisions for your healing, Jesus gives you dominion over Satan and sickness....

God really, really, really WANTS to Heal you.

If you are not a Christian, doesn't this all sound good?

Do you know Jesus?

Well, it is easy to know him and experience his undying, unfathomable love and affection.

He came and died for you.

"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life." (John 3:16) (KJV)

There is no greater love than Jesus.

"Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends." (John 15:13) (KJV)

Accept Him today if you don't know him.

Sinner's Prayer

"Dear Lord Jesus, I know that I am a sinner, and I ask for Your forgiveness. I believe You died for my sins and rose from the dead. I turn from my sins and invite You to come into my heart and life. I want to trust and follow You as my Lord and Savior."

Now, go and tell someone and welcome to His Kingdom.

Amen and Hallelujah.

Scripture Tips



Scripture Tip: When you see "Christ" think "God's Grace."

Example: I can do all things through "God's Grace" (Jesus Christ) which strengthen me. (Phil 4:13)

God's Grace, which is Jesus Christ) is unmerited favor. I was watching Joseph Prince and he said Christians fall when they rely on themselves (which makes them Live Under the Law). Never live under the Law, rely on Grace. Satan can't tempt you living under Grace, but Satan can tempt you when you live under the Law (Your own works). Living under the Law leads to Pride and "Pride cometh before a fall." (Proverbs 16:18) Remember Jesus's 2 commandments? Love God and Love thy neighbor. Both of those fulfill ALL the Law and the Prophets.

What is strengthen? Substitute healeth for "strengthen".

What heals? Jesus's stripes. Why? GOD'S GRACE! 

Another Tip: Faith is accepting something not yet obtained. Moreover, faith is the conviction of something God promised to do.

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. (KJV)

Now faith is assurance of things hoped for, a conviction of things not seen. (ASV)

Jesus Christ is Hope, He is Grace, He is Healing. One of the gifts of the Spirit is Faith.

But...

A HUGE Tip:

When you ask God for something, ask God for wisdom, too.

"If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you." James 1:5 (NIV)

Basically, God loves to dole out wisdom. God hates ignorance. And, psst..., Satan can only operate in ignorance. What does Wisdom give you? FAITH!

The main reason Solomon got so much was that he asked for wisdom!

Ask God for wisdom in all things. Wisdom is how you learn to live under God's Grace fully in FAITH....and, if you are living under God's Grace, which is Christ..."it's is God's pleasure to give you the kingdom." (Luke 12:32)

A Tip on Healing: By His stripes, we were healed...

Even though your symptoms are still there, Jesus already made provision for your healing. You just have to accept it (Faith is accepting something not seen, but already done). Praise God for it. In all things, give God praise.

Hallelujah!

Jesus, A Poem



Jesus

You are the beauty.
You are the poetry.
You are the majesty.
You are the apple
of mine eyes.
You are my husband,
the one that bought
me with the greatest price,
a price I cannot ev'r pay,
nor a price that I owe.
You were given in eternal
love and grace, and You
saved the world.
You are the Alpha and Omega,
the Son rising and the Son setting.
Nothing was made except by
your hand in infinity.
You control time,
You control space,
You are fate,
You are destiny.
You are the passion,
the Rock of Ages.
I kneel before thee,
humbled and unafraid.
I proclaim your name,
King of Kings,
Lord of Lords,
Lord of Hosts.
You are my Knight.
I am your Bride
that will serve you
in eternity.

Does God Like Me?


Does God Like Me?

Ponder that for a moment. We always hear: God loves you, God loves everybody. But, I've known people that say, "I love you but don't like you." Ever hear that? Well, God loves you AND GOD LIKES YOU.

Need Proof?

I did.

You know how a mom will sit and look at her child for hours with loving eyes while she delights in her child? God does the same with you. Even moreso...

In fact, God even counts the hairs on your head.

"But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows." (Luke 12:7) (KJV)

Yes, it may sound like a little too much love, but God loves you so much he counts the hairs on your head.

God feeds the birds, but he values YOU way more than them.

"Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?" (Matt 6:26) (KJV)

He also promises to supply all your needs.

"But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus." (Phillipians 4:19) (KJV)

The BIG, HUGE difference in God and everyone else is:

He likes you even when you fail. To err is human.

Why?

Jesus died and rose from the dead so that we might have communion again with God. But, Jesus knew we would fail because we are human (and He wasn't–He had a human body, but He was still God). Jesus never sinned, but he became all our sin on the Cross at Calvary.

But, why?

Grace.

Grace, which basically is there for us to get saved AND TO FAIL and not suffer the penalties for it. "His grace is sufficient." (2 Corinthians 12:9) If you screw up, and you will make mistakes because you are human, His Grace is Sufficient. God likes you that much he sent Jesus to die in your place so your sins would be forgiven even when you screw up.

Christians aren't perfect, just forgiven.

Jesus was perfect and they beat him senseless then crucified him on the Cross because He was blameless. Even Pontius Pilate knew He was blameless. (John 18:28-38)

When God looks at a Christian, he doesn't see sin or anything bad. When He looks at us, He sees Jesus because we accepted Jesus into our hearts. He also sees the Holy Ghost inside us...and you know who He is? The Holy Spirit really is Jesus's Spirit.

I'm not saying Grace is a license to sin. I'm saying Grace is there because we are human and will make mistakes because we are human. It is impossible for us as humans to live above sin because of our endemic nature. I actually think, but can't prove it, but us just existing day to day is some little sin. Sin is in our nature. It's called the flesh (not your skin or body), but our endemic nature. However, when we get saved, guess what?, we are reborn inside. The flesh is there but subdued. The more we pray, "crucify the flesh" as Paul put it Galatians 5:24, the more subdued it becomes. The flesh is those little thoughts that pop into your head that questions God, exalts above God. The flesh is NOT you but our endemic nature. Prayer is crucifying the flesh and bringing it under submission.

Yeah, God likes you that much. But, His like is both personal and corporate. Jesus is our Husband and we are His Bride. The Church is His Bride. But, Jesus wants to know you intimately as His Bride. God wants to hear about your successes, your failures, your wants, your needs, your prayers for others, what you like, what you dislike, your favorite food, your favorite song, your favorite movie, everything! God's ear never tires of listening to you no matter what you are saying, even when you go on and on and on about nothing. Unlike another human, He's actively listening to you.

God loves listening to you tell Him everything about you. His ear is always open and He's always happy hear what you have to say even if you're mad. His that good a friend. He knows His ways are not our ways. "For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord." (Isaiah 55:8) (KJV)

God fashioned you in the womb of your mother. Yes, He did. It's why abortion is murder. "For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb." (Psalms 139:13) (NIV) The Holy Spirit is the breath of life and one of His jobs is knitting us together in our mother's womb.

WHY WOULD GOD NOT LIKE YOU SINCE HE DOES ALL THAT TO MAKE YOU?!!!

Yes, God Likes You, Jesus Likes You and the Holy Spirit Likes You.

We know God loves us, but we also should know He likes us.

Do you know Jesus?

Well, it is easy to know him and experience his undying, unfathomable love and affection.

He came and died for you.

"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life." (John 3:16) (KJV)

There is no greater love than Jesus.

"Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends." (John 15:13) (KJV)

Accept Him today if you don't know him.

Sinner's Prayer

"Dear Lord Jesus, I know that I am a sinner, and I ask for Your forgiveness. I believe You died for my sins and rose from the dead. I turn from my sins and invite You to come into my heart and life. I want to trust and follow You as my Lord and Savior."

Now, go and tell someone and welcome to His Kingdom.

A Prayer for God's Protection from Evil

A Prayer for God's Protection from Evil

He who dwells in the secret place of Elyon (Most High), shall abide under the shadow of Shaddai (God Almighty). I will say of Yahweh (Covenant Keeping God), "He is my refuge and my fortress; my Elohim (God of Power, Creator), in Him will I trust."

The prayer was written by Pastor Jim Hammond of Living Word Christian Center.

Is Something Big About to Happen?

I get the feeling something very big is about to happen in America. I'm not sure what it is, but...

I remember early this year, before Corona shut down many states, it seemed like everything was going great. Economy was roaring.... But, God brought this to my mind:

"For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape." (I Thess. 5:3)

In the last few weeks, there are rioting all over our cities in America and they are spilling over in Europe.

Today, I feel the spirit of Antichrist is roving through our country. I felt that spirit this morning. I resisted it, but felt it.

"And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.

4 Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world."

We Christians don't have to worry about the spirit of Antichrist...

But, I think these riots happening are going to go on and on...

Strangely, though, I just get this unsettling feeling something really big is about to happen in our world. I don't know what it is, but something big is coming. Couldn't get it out my mind as I laid down to sleep tonight so I had to write this.

God is really trying to reach the lost lately like never before in history.

"Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me." (Rev. 3:20)

This passage of Scripture definitely is coming into vogue...

8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.

9 Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake.

10 And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.

11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.

12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.

13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.

(Matthew 24:8-13)

Be watchful. "The virgins are all trimming their wicks," (Matthew 25:1-13)

Do you know Jesus?

Well, it is easy to know him and experience his undying, unfathomable love and affection.

He came and died for you.

"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life." (John 3:16) (KJV)

"Dear Lord Jesus, I know that I am a sinner, and I ask for Your forgiveness. I believe You died for my sins and rose from the dead. I turn from my sins and invite You to come into my heart and life. I want to trust and follow You as my Lord and Savior."

Now, go and tell someone and welcome to His Kingdom.

Amen and Hallelujah.

Jesus is the Love You've Dreamed About



Jesus wants to be your spiritual husband. "For thy Maker is thine husband; the LORD of hosts is his name; and thy Redeemer the Holy One of Israel; The God of the whole earth shall he be called." (Isaiah 54:5) (KJV) And, "For as a young man marrieth a virgin, so shall thy sons marry thee: and as the bridegroom rejoiceth over the bride, so shall thy God rejoice over thee." (Isaiah 62:5) (KJV) God rejoices over us. God delights in us. "He will rejoice over you with singing." (Zephaniah 3:17)

We are the Bride of Christ, which is mentioned a lot in the Bible. Realistically, the Bible is God's love affair with us. Many think Songs of Solomon is the model for marriage. Yes, that's true, but it is also our model for our marriage to Christ.

God always wants to be first! Jesus is supposed to be your first love. "We love because he first loved us." (I John 4:19) Without loving Jesus, you really don't love anyone else the way God intended. God loves you so much he counts the hairs on your head. (Luke 12:17) Jesus really is nuts about you.

But, Jesus wants to be our first love.

"Thou shalt have no other gods before me." (Exodus 20:3) (KJV) And, of course, there are the first of two commandments of Jesus... "Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind." (Matt 22:37) (KJV)

You are supposed to love God with all your heart, all your soul and all your mind. Basically, God wants from us what He does for us. He probably doesn't get it from many Christians, but the few that ventures into actually doing it will reap something few Christians get. There is a fullness of God that he can let us experience and Jesus said he came so we might have life (salvation), and have life more abundantly. (John 10:10) Eternal life you get from salvation. But, abundant life you get from devotion to Jesus. You can never out love God.

But, God said David was a man after His own heart. (1 Sam 13:14; Acts 13:22)

You have to surrender your will to Jesus.

Honestly, I surrendered mine. I remember my devotion and acceptance at being a nun when I prayed something like this, "God, I give myself to you as a nun and a devote myself solely to you as your daughter, Jesus Christ as my husband and the Holy Spirit as my guide in Jesus's mighty name, Amen." The more I draw near to God, the more He'll draw near to me. "Draw near to God and He will draw near to you..." (James 4:8) (NKJV)

I always fought surrendering my will to Jesus. Honestly, I didn't know what that meant. I do wonder what He has in store for me. But, I doubt it is anything terrible. David risked his life a lot to do God's will. But, he was king of Israel and an actual warrior that shed a lot of blood.

About a year ago, God called me to the ministry with a really odd dream. I remember it well. I was in the military and we had these uniforms that was nothing like I had seen. But, I had a special uniform reserved only for me. I got the feeling other soldiers knew I was different. Not in awe of me, but they knew I carried a responsibility few did. I actually think I was the only one that did. Anyway, my job was to fly a plane, which I never saw, deep into enemy territory.

I didn't know it then, but Transgender Church was my ministry. I was meant to minister to others like myself. Honestly, I don't know a whole lot about female to male Transgenders, but I've been a male to female Transgender for really 48 years. Being Transgender is difficult because the church really doesn't get us, probably doesn't even like us. I'm sure female to male Transgender is the opposite of my experience.

Yes, there are some churches that accept Transgenders, but are they really following the Word of God in all areas like they are supposed to? Not really. The ones I've seen are okay with Gay Marriage (it's a sin, argue all you want) and progressive. God is not a secular humanist. He's Holy. God doesn't care if you are gay or lesbian and even enjoy such fantasies in your head. But, when you engage in gay or lesbian sex with someone, it's a sin, argue with me all you want, try and justify it all you want, it's a sin. The Bible is really clear on that in Romans 1:27. Also, those that engage in sexual immorality will not inherit the kingdom of Heaven via 1 Corinthians 6:9-11. I'd say that's pretty darn explicit. I cover how that affects Transgenders in https://www.transgenderchurch.com/2020/04/what-is-transgender-transgender-is-when.html

I've written all kinds of erotic romance novels. Straight, gay, lesbian, Transgender. It's not a sin. A novel is a fantasy. We all have fantasies in our brains. But, when you act on that fantasy and actually have sex with the same gender, it's a sin. If you are gay and abstain, fine. God has no problem with you. It's the actual sex that'll get you into trouble. Romans 1:27 is really clear on that, as I already mentioned. And, since Gay/Lesbian sex is a sin, you automatically know Gay marriage is sin, too. I don't care what so-and-so says. I don't care what some preacher says. It's a sin, period. The Bible is our authority not the opinion of someone, even if they claim to be a minister.

Why?

The DNA can't be changed.

God loves you for you. But, you can't change your DNA no matter how much you transition your appearance. God is fine with transitioning. I could never afford it. But, you can't change the DNA. God will readily accept you as Transgender, but if you were born a man physically, sexual relations with a man is a sin. Same applies if you were born female and have sex with another woman. It's a sin, too. Be sure to read Transgender Q&A. It explains it all. If I were to transition, and, yes, I'd love to live as a physical woman, I would ask God first what He thought. God really doesn't mind you dressing up. It's not a sin. Trust me, I'd love nothing more than to wake up in the morning with a female body matching my inside. But, God has helped me tremendously by calling me Rachel and accepting me as her. He'll do the same for you, too. I used to tell people I was a lesbian, but the simple truth is, my DNA is male so I'm really not as much as I'd like to think I was. LOL God doesn't care about fantasies, but He does care about the sex we have with someone else. Since saying that prayer and devoting myself to Jesus as a nun, I'll have a fleeting thought about wanting someone, but it doesn't last long. I meant my prayer to God.

At any rate, Jesus is your husband.

Paul actually said, maybe in his opinion, Christians should be single. "For I would that all men were even as I myself. But every man hath his proper gift of God, one after this manner, and another after that." (I Cor. 7:7) (KJV) But, that's not realistic. God did make Adam and Eve and said men should not be alone (Genesis 2:18). Even Paul said you should get married if you "burn with passion" (1 Cor. 7:9), which basically means if you're constantly lusting after everyone that crosses your path, get hitched. A husband can lust after his wife all day long, and a wife can lust after her husband all day long. In fact, aren't they supposed to desire each other sexually?

A little tidbit about marriage: the Husband's contributions makes all the difference. A woman can give and give, but it won't matter that much to a man that isn't giving. But, if the man gives everything, it will make all the difference unless the woman is just plain evil and totally into herself. Guys, God even warns you about such women in Proverbs 7. The warning was about adultery and said, "Her house is a highway to the grave, leading down to the chambers of death." God described her as "Then out came a woman to meet him, dressed like a prostitute and with crafty intent. (She is unruly and defiant, her feet never stay at home; now in the street, now in the squares, at every corner she lurks.)" Such a woman leads a man to ruin. Think Delilah and Sampson. Be wary of the temptress. Her silken words and sinful manners can destroy any man. And, girls, don't be that woman. Guys, look for a virtuous woman, and, girls, be one.

Maybe that's one of the reasons Paul loved singleness.

As far as me, I'll be quite honest here, I like the idea of marriage and sex with others. But, the reality left a lot to be desired. My rape when I was three and half years old ruined sex for me and made me hyper-sexual. It triggered that part of my Bipolar I disorder. I asked God to heal me of Bipolar and He lead me to understand sometimes healing is worse than the disease. Bipolars looooove their highs. Even with meds, I have my highs, but they are controlled, and, honestly, I don't want to be normal.

Let's face it, being Transgender is not the norm for anyone. It puts you at total odds with your physical body, and some can't handle such sexual fluidity. But, I love being a woman inside and have no desire to be male. I'm revealing myself here, but inside Rachel is a tough as nails woman that is also soft, loving, kind and feminine. She's a lioness with the heart of a woman. I'd much rather talk with others about how I feel than cars, football, or manly stuff. It's the reason so many women will confide in me just after we meet.

And, to be honest, when God called me "Rachel" in a dream–that changed my life in ways I'm still uncovering. Since I have Jewish blood and my Rachel persona was Jewish, I see why God liked the idea. But, then the Holy Spirit was totally excited when I decided to devote myself to God and be a "nun." He lead me there. It's odd, but as Rachel, I've never seen a person that could be my equal in life. I am totally content being Rachel inside. I just watch who I call "sweetie" and "honey." I sometimes totally forget people see a guy and not who I really am in Rachel. LOL

Men have a harder time with Jesus as Husband than women do. But, there is nothing sexual about it. It basically means, Jesus is your all. He wants to be your everything. He wants to be first in your life. It should be God, your spouse (if married), your kids, your job, etc. But, honestly, why I told God I'd be a nun was simple: I really want to see what God has in store for me. I just might get to see things few get to see and experience things few get to experience. Yes, it feels romantic, but it goes deeper. God really wants to satisfy all your needs. He wants to satisfy your physical needs, your emotional needs, your spiritual needs and even your sexual needs (not with Him, but He can give you Anointed Sex with yourself). God does offer Anointed Sex to Christians, which you can enjoy by yourself or with a spouse. Definitely the best sex I've ever had and it's just me. I'm Bipolar and God knows I'm hyper-sexual so the Anointed Sex I have has more than met that need.

But, Love is our main need.

Only God can give us Agape Love. That is the deepest love we can ever experience. Agape love is described as the love of God for man and the love of man for God. The depths of God's love really is beyond imagination. But, somehow, we can experience it if we only surrender our will to God, and love Him with all our heart, all our mind and all our soul as Jesus commanded. I definitely have felt infatuation for Jesus. Honestly, Christianity makes me horny, but that is just my individual response. However, infatuation with God will eventually go even deeper. For some, like me, it is the first step into a world I think few people get to go. Honestly, I'm married to Jesus. I made a vow to be a nun and be celibate for Jesus.

And, you bet your bottom dollar, I want to experience Agape Love to the fullest extent possible. Jesus promised it. "I come that you have life, and have life more abundantly." (John 10:10 paraphrase). Life is salvation. Life more abundantly is that experience of Agape love that St. Theresa called ecstasy. I don't know what she experienced exactly, but I want it. She had the abundant life. To get that, you have to surrender you will, devote yourself, and make Jesus your one and only like she did. I will tell you the closer you get to God, the closer the Holy Spirit will manifest Himself to you. You can feel the tingling and heat of the Spirit from head to toe. There is nothing like the Anointing.

Agape love has changed me. I'm finding I love everybody more and more each day. I want it to get to the point the only thing I see in another person is their soul. Since God is Love, and to love others, God has to love through you, I believe eventually that will happen. My endemic nature might not like it, but I want it. I want to go after God's heart. I don't know what that really means, and I may not get there, but I want it.

Yes, I have my doubts. And, I have my moments of "what the heck am I doing?" But, such thoughts are fleeting. Emotions are fleeting. You can't live life by your emotions because "the heart is desperately wicked." (Jeremiah 17:9) The heart is desperately wicked because it is never satisfied. The heart flows with the wind and is directionless. You basically have to master it. Feelings are wonderful things, but they should never control your life. I think they should be a confirmation of what you think. The heart should be subject to your mind and will not the other way around. The mind and will is the adult and the heart (emotions) are your child. The heart can move you to do things, but you should think it through first.

And, remember this, "love (human) was not meant to last." Pat Benatar sang that line in Shadows of the Night and I've never forgotten it. A soul mate is an extremely rare thing. Even then, that love will fade and has to be constantly nurtured. God's love is never-ending while a human's love eventually has an expiration date. You might be totally in love with someone and a year later have moved on. God never moves on, His love never grows cold, His love never gets stale. God's love is for eternity. And, the way to get more of it is to give it away.

C.S. Lewis said there were four loves: Agape, Eros (the sexual he called Venus), Philia (friend, siblings) and Storge (empathy or familiar like how a mom loves their child). Agape is charitable love, unmerited love and from God. But, I think C.S. Lewis had it wrong. All love is from God. At God's core, there is love. I honestly think the other three loves C.S. Lewis describes are really reflections of Agape. We are only capable of really loving anyone through God. Otherwise, we don't.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Four_Loves

Jesus's love for us was stated here as the greatest: "Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends" (John 15:13). What is the greatest love? Sacrifice. If you really love someone, you'll sacrifice for them. And, if you are a husband, you have to be willing to die for your Bride like Jesus, the Husband, did for the Church, His Bride.

God can't leave you; He'll only get sweeter and sweeter!

If you are not a Christian, doesn't this all sound good?

On December 20,1991, I got saved in bed with bronchitis. It was a beautiful experience. So, can you! It changed my life forever.

Do you know Jesus?

Well, it is easy to know him and experience his undying, unfathomable love and affection.

He came and died for you.

"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life." (John 3:16) (KJV)

There is no greater love than Jesus.

"Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends." (John 15:13) (KJV)

Accept Him today if you don't know him.

Jesus As My Husband; My Testimony



Jesus As My Husband; My Testimony

I am a Transgender woman, a Jew, a nun and the Pastrix of TransgenderChurch.com.

And, Jesus is my Husband.

Jesus said he would fulfill all my needs and give me the desires of my heart. "Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart." (Psalms 37:4) (KJV) I tell Jesus often how much I love Him as my husband, provider, protector, my all. He's the one I adore. You see, Jesus is your spiritual husband as a Christian. "For thy Maker is thine husband; the LORD of hosts is his name; and thy Redeemer the Holy One of Israel; The God of the whole earth shall he be called." (Isaiah 54:5) (KJV) No, we don't have sex. But, I have sex with myself and toys. And, it is Anointed (something few Christians explore I think), holy sex that has blown my mind and I've been sexually active since eleven years old (mostly masturbation). I'm 51 and having the best sex ever. But, Jesus as Husband means He is responsible for meeting my emotional, psychological, physical, sexual and spiritual needs.

Honestly, for years, I thought I wanted to meet some woman, and had strong crushes. Pat Benatar, my favorite female singer ever, was a strong crush in from 1983-1987. Taylor Swift was a strong crush for years, before I took my vows as a nun before God. Now, today, I'm no longer interested and have no crushes. Jesus wants to be the focus of your life in everything.

And, I am content, not just happy, but content in Christ Jesus.

But, how did my journey begin?

On May 17, 1972, I was a mere three and one-half years old. My father left me with a military couple he knew the night my mother went into labor with my brother. Both of them molested me. It was not violent, and she was evil, but was loving, as weird as that sounds. Anyway, after getting me in their waterbed naked, she was naked, she masturbated me with her hand before asking me if I wanted to feel real good and she performed fellatio on me. Honestly, I enjoyed it. I was just way too young. Yes, it was wrong and sick of her, but I enjoyed it. Afterwards, she asked me if I wanted to make her feel good. I did and she taught me how to perform cunnilingus on her. I didn't know any better. So, I did for about two hours and she had multiple orgasms. Then, I tried to pleasure her husband and couldn't. As they made love on the bed, I sat at the end of the bed watching the snow on the screen and the boy I was left and the girl I became stayed. I started masturbating to completion at eleven, and I loved sex. I never could get enough, and still can't. But, she killed my desire for anyone as a lover. I always fantasized about being married to some woman, but the idea was way better than the reality. And, when I look at a woman, since I am female inside and God sees me as a woman, I don't think, "I'd like to do her." No, I think, "what if I was her!" I've been doing that for as long as I can remember.

So, as my rapist made me a girl, my father's unending emotional abuse was my estrogen that made me a woman. I read a book by a female clinical psychologist and she intimated that estrogen makes women look at the emotional cues of others to see what they need from them. I did the same thing with my father and he was never satisfied. So, therefore, his emotional abuse was my estrogen that fully cemented me as a woman.

So, I am male physically, since I couldn't afford transition ever, and a full woman inside. But, God told me He wanted to be my everything. Jesus was the spiritual husband. For some reason, it is easier to see Jesus as husband if you are woman than a man. Sexual love is for humans, agape love is for Jesus. Yes, I sometimes think about Jesus romantically since I am totally in love with Him, and that's okay. I just don't think sexually about Him. He's God and Holy. However, Jesus can give you a mono sex life few ever get to have. I love my sex toys, and I am celibate for my husband. Paul calls the single life (1 Cor. 7:1-5) a gift. It is indeed a gift, and it is rare. Most are meant to marry another human being. I just was not. I'm a eunuch. I think my rape and childhood abuse made me a eunuch. The Bible says some are made. I rather think I was made. But, celibacy is for a rare few.

The Nun Thing

After a night of despair, God called me Rachel in a dream. He got me. He really got me. I was overjoyed he saw me as a female. Later, He gave me a dream and I was Rachel in the dream. He totally got me. And, my love for God bloomed into a raging river of passion, love, and adoration. Yes, even though it is not sexual, I am totally in love with Jesus. At first, it was romantic. Now, it is something far deeper. I told God to touch me anywhere, anytime. I remember my devotion and acceptance at being a nun when I prayed something like this, "God, I give myself to you as a nun and a devote myself solely to you as your daughter, Jesus Christ as my husband and the Holy Spirit as my guide in Jesus's mighty name, Amen." The more I draw near to God, the more He'll draw near to me. "Draw near to God and He will draw near to you..." (James 4:8) (NKJV) Many nuns consider themselves wives of Jesus and ever wear wedding rings. While my nunship is between me and God, I think it is no different than an accepted nun.

The love of God is unreal. Sometimes, it really is overwhelming how much God can love you. God will do this for me (and you): "Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over." (Psalms 23:5) (KJV). Trust me, He will do it for you as He has done it for me. God's love, unlike a human's, is never-ending and He'll never leave you alone. "Don’t love money. Be happy with what you have because God has said, “I will never abandon you or leave you.”" (Hebrews 13:5) (GW)

God can't leave you; He'll only get sweeter and sweeter!

If you are not a Christian, doesn't this all sound good?

On December 20,1991, I got saved in bed with bronchitis. It was a beautiful experience. So, can you! It changed my life forever.

Do you know Jesus?

Well, it is easy to know him and experience his undying, unfathomable love and affection.

"Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends." (John 15:13) (KJV)

Accept Him today if you don't know him.
