One Can Happen

A bit of my testimony & 4 Ways to Quiet Your Spirit Before God, by Steve Hill — “Instead of getting depressed and complaining, they began to praise God!”

As a senior in high school (St. Croix Lutheran in W. St. Paul, MN) in the ’70s, I realized I couldn’t love people fully enough, and that I needed God’s help to do it. I didn’t know if Christianity was the right religion, because Lutheranism hadn’t done it for me, or from what I could see in those around me. So I decided to research every religion until I found the right one. I started by reading the Bible for myself, starting with the Book of Acts.

When I read this story about Paul and Silas being thrown into prison — being beaten, yet they still worshiped with their whole being, God filling them so fully — I realized they had it.

And I’ve never needed to look anywhere else, but have been frustrated by how sub-biblical Christianity mostly is today.

Anyway, these are highlights of this article, 4 Ways to Quiet Your Spirit Before God, by Steve Hill:

Remember when Paul and Silas were in prison? They were not only chained; they had also been severely beaten. Most likely their prison cell was infested with rats, and diseases were rampant.

I can imagine Paul looking at the burns on his hands from the chains and the cuts all over his body. He and Silas were hurting, and their lives were in jeopardy. But what did they do? Instead of getting depressed and complaining, they began to praise God.

I can just hear them lifting their voices to God in praise in the midst of their desperation, saying, “We worship You, Lord. We worship You, Jesus. Thank You for Your presence. Thank You for Your strength. We love You, Lord.”

It caught the attention of heaven, and God sent an earthquake to deliver them!

[…]

I must use the story of Jesus in the garden during His passion as the example of aligning ourselves to God’s will. …

But something else happened to Jesus in the garden after He prayed. Notice the next verse: “An angel from heaven appeared to him and strengthened him” (v. 43). My friend, this is so powerful. Always remember that after Jesus resigned Himself to God’s will, the angels strengthened Him.

And so it is with you. It’s after you resign yourself to God’s will that the angels will come and strengthen you!

[…]

Here is where so many miss it. They allow their present situation to dictate everything that’s going on around them. Instead, you must learn to relax and say, “This is a season, and it is going to pass. It’s going to bring the peaceable fruit of righteousness. Some good is going to come out of this.”

Isaiah 30:15 tells us why it’s so important to learn how to quiet our spirits: “In quietness and trust is your strength” (NIV). It doesn’t get much clearer than that.

Quieting your spirit will help you navigate through the storms of life no matter what you are going through and no matter what’s happening in the world around you. It’s an art and a spiritual discipline that will change your life and help set the course for your future as it has mine. Why not begin today?

My Eureka! prayer moment this morning!!! Jesus’ words, “Father forgive them, for THEY KNOW NOT WHAT THEY DO” also applies to born-again, “Spirit-filled” Christians who are willfully sinning, including hating and James-3 cursing us.

I shared this on my Facebook page, this morning: My EUREKA! moment theory: the sin *minimizing*, sin *blinding*, sin *justifying* demons causing Christians to think and feel that their sinning is okay. “We must be clean.”

Eureka! prayer moment this morning!!! Jesus’ words, “Father forgive them, for THEY KNOW NOT WHAT THEY DO” also applies to born-again, “Spirit-filled” Christians who are willfully sinning, including hating and James-3 cursing us.

Jesus prayed this from the cross for the Jews who put him up there and who were meanly mocking him. I used to think that once a person is born-again and has the Holy Spirit to help them see and lead them into all truth (John 14 & 16), then they do KNOW WHAT THEY DO when they sin against us. But I’m finding that the only way I can fully forgive from my whole heart those ‘Christians’ who sin against me is if I think the way Jesus thought towards those who hated him.

So that’s key one — to be able to fully forgive anyone and everyone no matter what.

Then I took this one step further. HOW CAN BORN-AGAIN, “SPIRIT-FILLED” CHRISTIANS NOT KNOW HOW EVIL THEIR SINNING AGAINST US IS?

I’ve actually been thinking about this for a long time, and have proven from the Bible that born-again Christians can have evil spirits in them (article linked below). And I’ve said that “most have many,” because of the willful sinning that almost everyone is doing, today — including the hating and James-3 cursing of other people, to get their way.

But if they DON’T KNOW WHAT THEY’RE DOING when they’re intentionally hating others, praying against people, cursing people FROM THEIR HEART, what James talks about in chapter 3, verse 14 identifying the source location:

“But if you have *bitter jealousy* and *selfish ambition* IN YOUR *HEART*….”

…if THEY DON’T KNOW WHAT THEY’RE DOING they must be blinded by SIN-JUSTIFICATION DEMONS that deceive people into thinking their willful sinning against others is okay.

So if we pray against the sin-justifying demons within people [our warfare not being against people but demons], then they’ll be able to see their sin more for what it is. [I say “more,” because on earth, I don’t think it’s possible to see how bad our sin really is.]

So my EUREKA! moment this morning was this awareness that people have what I’m right now calling sin-justification demons in them so even though they have the Holy Spirit in them, willful sinning has opened the door to demons being able to reinforce their sinning to the degree that many are BLINDED so they can’t see how bad their sins against others really is.

And if we PRAY THAT THEY’LL BE FREE from the sin-justifying demons, then they’ll be able to understand their willfully sinning state much better, and then they’ll be able to see more so their responsibility to get right with those they’ve hurt.

And when enough do ‘ONE’ can happen!!!!!!!

Can a Christian Have a Demon? Absolutely! Most Have Many!

The Safety Zone: “It’s not a fence, it’s a guardrail!” — Demons lie at the door and wait for us to jump God’s loving and protective guardrails

Filed under: Personal • ONE!,Who Goes to Heaven — Jeff Fenske @ 8:15 am

Safety in His arms!

I love this cartoon — and often think in this actual guardrails’ term! [I'd post it, but it's copyrighted — "a Joyful 'toon by Mike Waters."]

God’s ways are there to protect us. They’re for our good. We should embrace them, and walk the narrow path with head held high. Demons lie at the door and wait for us to jump God’s loving guardrails.

The one guy is jumping over the “God’s Commands” guardrail, saying: “I hate being confined by this fence! I’m jumping over it!

The other guy says: “Wait! It’s not a fence! It’s a guardrail!

And the guy falls off the cliff.

Then it states: “Whoever keeps commandments keeps their life, but whoever shows contempt for their ways will die.” (Proverbs 19:16)

We must keep in step with the Holy Spirit — keeping our hands and hearts clean — the way of freedom that leads to eternal life in Christ Jesus!

“But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you won’t fulfill the lust of the flesh.” (Gal. 5:16)

Excellent illustration!

Why I haven’t posted much lately — Art show in Anchorage

Filed under: Personal • ONE! — Jeff Fenske @ 9:08 am

I’ve had to minimize time spent on my blogs lately, as I’ve been swamped and dumbfounded by massive, multiple (actual fact), mysterious technical difficulties, one of which still isn’t fully solved after 7 weeks. But I’m pressing through, and made a new print yesterday. Hopefully, soon it will be full speed ahead, being able to present my new work until January 31 in this beautiful coffee shop just blocks from where I live.

I’ve spent more time on the phone during these seven weeks, troubleshooting, than maybe in the last seven years — seriously. Some of my story is here:

EXCITING message at Abbott Loop this morning by Josh Tanner: “Ambassadors of Reconciliation!” — ‘ONE’ can still happen this year “that the world will know” — Jesus’ heart-cry-prayer for us in John 17!

I updated my thinking on this message 6 weeks later, here:

 

The Most Disappointing Message on RECONCILIATION (Abbott Loop) — At first I was excited, but then MY HEART SANK, realizing once-saved-always-saved destroyed the fruit, which should have been massive. Josh Tanner taught that people who hurt people and refuse to get right will have ‘RECONCILIATION PARTIES’ in heaven? • False doctrine is keeping ‘ONE’ from happening so God can show up and “the world will know” (John 17)!

And here:

Josh Tanner’s “Ambassadors of Reconciliation” message — People who have hurt people will go to heaven and can reconcile there???##!!!!

I just posted this on my Facebook page:

EXCITING message at Abbott Loop this morning by Josh Tanner: “Ambassadors of Reconciliation!”

‘ONE’ can still happen this year, “that the world will know” — Jesus’ heart-cry-prayer for us in John 17! The great revival, The Third Great Awakening that will transform Anchorage and greatly affect our nation!

Some things Josh said:

“We need to learn how to become excellent at reconciliation.”

“Am I wrecking or reconciling? You’re going one way or the other.”

He had them all say “I was wrong” out loud at minute-29.

Wow!

Selah.

The message wasn’t all great, though. At minute-16, Josh said we can hate people and still go to heaven, and then get right with people there. What?!

Huh? People who hate people don’t go to heaven (Gal. 5:19-6:9), which I’ve also proven in my article, linked below. Josh is still teaching the once-saved-always-saved heresy that is deceiving many into thinking we don’t need to walk clean now so we’ll have clean hearts to be able to enter then.

Josh did enthusiastically say we shouldn’t wait, though.

Overall, it was very good, and this is now only the second message I’ve heard in my entire life devoted only to reconciliation. The first was also by Josh in October, but I like this one much better. Very exciting, actually!

Praise God!

I’ll include some key links about this below. I’ve been pushing for this hard since 1990 — at one time too hard. But I’ve hung in there, because I know this is God’s desire for us, and we can do it!

Though the U.S. is dark, the future can be bright for us no matter what happens!!! : )

Thank you, Josh for leading this reconciliation charge!

The links I included:

The Azusa Street Revival (1906-15): The biggest move of miracles in the history of America — The fire of God’s glory on the roof! “Even the fingernails grew back!” In 1909, Seymour prophesied the next revival will come in about 100 years! We’re due!!!

Who-Goes-To-Heaven Scriptures — Narrow is the Way | Who are the Children of God? — “There is therefore now *no condemnation* to those who are IN CHRIST Jesus, who don’t WALK according to the flesh, but ACCORDING TO THE SPIRIT.”

More key links:

Effects of the WELSH REVIVAL 1904-05: Whole communities were radically changed FROM DEPRAVITY TO GLORIOUS GOODNESS. The CRIME RATE dropped, often to nothing. THE POLICE had little more to do than supervise the coming and going of the people to the chapel prayer meetings. THE UNDERGROUND MINES echoed with the sounds of PRAYER and HYMNS, instead of nasty jokes and gossip. People who had fallen out BECAME FRIENDS AGAIN!!!!!!!

Kevin Conner on the Believer’s CONDITIONAL Security: “OBEDIENCE IS the very law of SECURITY for all created beings. There can be NO SUCH THING as UNCONDITIONAL security.”

(video) Asbury Revival, 1970: RECONCILIATION the KEY! — “‘Dr. Kinlaw, I am a liar. Now what do I do?’ … Three days later, she came to me radiant, and she said, ‘I just hit my 34th person and I’m free!’”

Rick Joyner: “REPENTANCE includes RESTITUTION for the wrongs that have caused injury to others”

Can ‘Christians’ use Paul’s “Forgetting the things which are behind…I press on” statement as an excuse to not get right with those they’ve hurt? Paul also said: “I also practice ALWAYS having a conscience void of offense toward God and men.” What if you don’t repent? And what will happen when you do? The Third Great Awakening can start with us!!! We can all be happy — ‘ONE’!

The Achan Factor — Because of one man’s disobedience the entire nation of Israel had to deal with the “Achan factor” among them before they could come under the umbrella of Almighty God’s blessings once again!

The Didache (70-100 AD): Reconciliation was required to attend early church meetings! “How upside-down the ‘church’ is today.”

The R-Word: ‘Reconciliation’ is Required to Worship in Spirit and in Truth — Why is this key to revival a taboo subject?

“No snowflake in an avalanche ever feels responsible”

My comment on Francis Frangipane’s post: “Francis, do you remember how you prophesied in Wasilla, Alaska about the REVIVAL happening up here to such a great degree that…” | Paul made sure he was right with everyone, but how many pastors can say that today? | “There is might and there is power and there is GLORY, but it is being withheld until these relationships are made right…

“There is more to forgiveness than meets the eye”

Filed under: Personal • ONE!,Prophecies & Visions — Jeff Fenske @ 11:50 pm

I haven’t gotten a long prophecy in long time, but I hear various things every day. Many are people to pray for; insight about what’s going on; etc.. “We can all hear and obey.”

I heard this about an hour ago. I’m not sure if it’s about us being forgiven, or what it takes to really forgiven and be free from the James-3 curses people wish on us, which is rampant, today.

Something to contemplate and ask God about.
