WRONGLY APPROPRIATED AUTHORITY




“The heaven, even the heavens, are the Lord’s; but the earth hath He given to the children of men.” (Psalms 115:16)

In that day the Lord with his hard and great and strong sword will punish Leviathan the fleeing serpent, Leviathan the twisting serpent, and he will slay the dragon that is in the sea. (Isaiah 27:1)

These are two verses in the Bible that speak of the Earth being mans' domain and Heaven being Gods. Our Lord commands ALL those who believe in Him to do things, which gives us authority in these areas. Each of these things are when the enemy is invading His territory on the Earth.

1.  Cast out demons (from things on this earth)
2.  Speak with new tongues
3. Take up serpents
4. If they drink any deadly thing it shall not harm them
5. They will pray for the sick and they shall be healed

All these are things that are touching the earth. While writing this post, the Holy Spirit urged me to take a closer look at number three. In Strong’s Concordance the Greek word “αἴρω” for “take up” can also mean to “remove from thy place.” Serpents are often used to describe Satan and his forces. We are to remove them from their place here on Earth. How do we do that? By removing their authority in the Courts of Heaven.

The Dangers of Taking Communion


The Jewish Feast of Passover begins on Friday night with a feast. Christians know this as “the last supper.” Jesus instructed His disciples concerning the bread and wine which have deep spiritual meaning for God’s people. Let’s examine and fully understand communion, before we speak of the dangers of it. To do this, we must go back to what Jesus and His disciples practiced at that time.

Sharing meals was so important to the Jewish community that special blessings were said at the start and end of the meal. At the beginning of the family meal, this blessing is said as the bread is broken.
"Blessed are You, O LORD our God, King of the Universe, Who has brought forth bread from the earth."
The Passover was not only a meal, it was a feast where many items had a special meaning; the bread was one of those things. When did Jesus make this statement that our communion is centered around?

The Blue Moon Passover - What is God Saying?


Many of us are familiar with the saying, “Once in a blue moon,” which has been around for more than 400 years. It originally meant “it will never happen.” However, certain events have caused the moon to appear blue in the last 150 years. It happens when there are particles in the atmosphere from volcanic eruptions, extreme dust from droughts, or widespread forest fires. Because of this, the term has now come to mean very rarely. 

In 1988 radio stations, news anchors, and newspapers talked about the folklore associated with the expression when there was a second full moon in a month. The phrase was so catchy that restaurants, clothing stores, and  bookstores opening in the following months sported the name “blue moon.” This was the birth of the second full moon in a month being labeled a blue moon, as is fitting since they usually only occur once every 32 months. 

This year is quite special. The second blue moon is occurring two short months since the last one in January and it too  will happen on one of the Feasts of Israel. (Read about the first one CLICK HERE) To fully understand the significance, you must be aware of the difference in the Roman and Hebrew system of days. 

Two of the most significant events in the Gospel are hotly debated by skeptics who see inaccuracies in the testimonies given in the Bible. These “inaccuracies” can be explained if you understand the difference in the Hebrew and Roman calendar system. (Read about those here: 1st post, 2nd post)

Destroying the Chains of Autism


Our right to appear in the Courts of Heaven and the importance of this aspect of how they operate has been removed from the Church for many years. Because of this, Satan has been able to retain some authority in the Earth, even over believers. 

Do you belong to a church that has someone you can call if you think there is an issue with a demonic spirit? Most of us do not, and there is a good reason for this. The “Jesus’ Movement” of the 70’s came and revived the knowledge of our authority over demons, but without the missing key to the Courts there was a roadblock that caused many well-meaning Christians to stand in harsh judgment of those who were not delivered with healing. The inconsistency of the effectiveness of the deliverance ministry and these harsh views, turned most believers away from having anything to do with talk of demons or attacks from the enemy, especially where healing is concerned.

This is not the will of God. Jesus gave power to ALL who would believe in Him right before He left this Earth:

“And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils…” (Mark 16:17 JV)
