The openly satanic Grammy’s were a wake-up call that many artists and celebrities are not role-models for our kids, but rather they are Satanists and devil-worshippers. They’re not even trying to hide it any more. Parents please be careful what your kids are consuming. You can’t eat at the devil’s table and not be affected by what you eat. You can’t listen to music made by devil-worshippers and not be affected by what you listen to. We cannot support artists who are openly satanic. These artists and celebrities have drawn a line in the sand. Who is on the Lord’s side? God is bringing exposure to wicked people in every arena. Artists and entertainers, wicked politicians and people from every arena are being exposed at this time. It’s just like what Jesus said in Luke 12:3, “Whatever you have said in the dark will be heard in the light, and what you have whispered behind closed doors will be shouted from the rooftops for all to hear!” The openly satanic practices of the arts and entertainment industries and political arenas are being exposed. Darkness cannot dispel light, but rather light dispels darkness! The light of Jesus Christ dispels all darkness! Now is the time for the church of Jesus Christ to rise and push back the darkness! Now is the time to shine the light of Jesus in a dark world that is looking for answers. The church is the hope of the world. Jesus said, “Upon this rock I will build my church, and all the powers of hell will not conquer it.” (Matt. 16:18) The powers of hell cannot overcome the church of Jesus Christ! Now is the time for the church to rise and take our authority back over the darkness, and push back the darkness with our prayers, our worship, the word of God, and taking a stand for Jesus Christ!

Matthew 16:21-26 ESV From that time Jesus began to show his disciples that he must go to Jerusalem and suffer many things from the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and on the third day be raised. (22) And Peter took him aside and began to rebuke him, saying, “Far be it from you, Lord! This shall never happen to you.” (23) But he turned and said to Peter, “Get behind me, Satan! You are a hindrance to me. For you are not setting your mind on the things of God, but on the things of man.” (24) Then Jesus told his disciples, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. (25) For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will find it. (26) For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his soul? Or what shall a man give in return for his soul? I’ve never heard anyone talk or preach about Peter’s lack of counting the cost or submitting to the will of God. Peter is a pillar of faith. It’s Peter who blindly obeys Jesus, even before he knows who Jesus is. Consider Peter and Jesus’ first meeting – Matthew (4:18-20 ESV) relates that “While walking by the Sea of Galilee, he (Jesus) saw two brothers, Simon (who is called Peter) and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea, for they were fishermen. (19) And he said to them, “Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.” (20) Immediately, they left their nets and followed him. And these are the first disciples Jesus calls. Peter leaves his boat and his nets behind. Peter’s read Elijah’s rebuke of Elisha, who, when called, desired to stable the oxen and tell his family goodbye. So, Peter dodges that bullet, drops his life as a fisherman, and takes a walk. And is that not somehow losing one’s life? And then recall that stormy night on the deep. Matthew tells of Jesus approaching the disciples, walking across the boisterous sea. He writes, “But when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were terrified, and said, “It is a ghost!” and they cried out in fear. (27) But immediately Jesus spoke to them, saying, “Take heart; it is I. Do not be afraid.” (28) And Peter answered him, “Lord, if it is you, command me to come to you on the water.” (29) He said, “Come.” So, Peter got out of the boat and walked on the water and came to Jesus.” (14:26-29 ESV). I know we fault him for his lack of finishing faith, but we can quickly see that Peter’s starting faith was similar to when he was first called – he leaps at the call, tossing care aside for stalwart belief and confidence, here, risking his life, literally, for his faith. But it’s Jesus (not me) who points out, Peter, you’ve let your mind and heart settle on the things of this world, you’re yearning for earthly gain, and trying to convince me that this is my will – “Get behind me, Satan! You are a hindrance to me.” And, if we have any true sense of who Peter is, we can recognize that this crushed him. His fall is precipitous! Just six verses before, Peter speaks the truth when others are sitting in doubt, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God” (Matthew 16:16 ESV). And his reward is great – Jesus proclaims, “And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. (19) I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven” (Matthew 16:18-19 ESV). Herein we glean something powerful – the flesh is ever before us and submitting our will to the will of God requires tenacious diligence, but in the submission, one is led forward in power. “Adam, where are you?” (Genesis 3:9 ESV). Yet I can hear that call. It still pierces the darkness and the fog to bring man back to God. John tells of Peter’s first meeting with Peter. Andrew, Peter’s brother, initiated the meeting. John tells it like this, “One of the two who heard John speak and followed Jesus was Andrew, Simon Peter's brother. He first found his brother Simon and said to him, “We have found the Messiah” (which means Christ). He brought him to Jesus. Jesus looked at him and said, “You are Simon, the son of John. You shall be called Cephas” (which means Peter)” (John 1:40-42 ESV). Jesus speaks into his life, and when Peter (Simon) gets his call, he rushes off. Later, Jesus reminds Peter again - “And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock, I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it” (Matthew 16:18). This is about that love and submission to the will and the call of Christ, about Peter’s willingness to receive the knowledge of God and to allow that knowledge to flow through him. Jesus pronounces his judgment on that – Peter, you are a rock! Follow after me, flow in the spirit, hear my voice, do my will, keep my commandments, and here will I build my church. But look how quickly that confidence turns to quicksand. We see it multiple times demonstrated in Peter. Here in Matthew 16 (Peter desires an earthly kingdom and power), Mathew 17 in the transfiguration (Peter misses the moment and the importance of what is happening), and Matthew 26 in his denial of Christ and his turning away. Each plunge echoes his hasty disembarking of the sinking ship in those troubled waters in sheer confidence in Christ Matthew tells of in chapter 14 – only for him to sink before he gains his target. Someone needs to hear this – you need tenacious faith. A faith that won’t let go no matter how your foot has slipped, faith that knows how to peel your eyes up to look yet again into the face of Christ, and faith that knows how to speak out in the trouble. You need a tenacious, determined faith that says, though I slipped, I shall not descend to the depths of this despair – “Lord, save me” (Matthew 14:30 ESV). This is the confidence that would pull Peter through. This is the effect of Jesus’ prayer that he (Peter) would not be sifted as wheat – that confidence that Jesus would immediately reach out his hand and took hold of him, even when he had lost his way (Matthew 14:31 ESV). I don’t know what winds have assailed you. I don’t know what dreams have crept in to turn your head and spin your eyes. I haven’t heard the whispers in your dark night that sought to plant your feet in earthly soil, but if you’ll listen to the rebuke (the call), if you’ll tune back in, Jesus is committed to you – Simon, you shall be called Cephas! I know right now things are up one day and down the next. The winds are strong, and trouble and trials push and provoke you to fight so that you may have it your way. But Simon, that’s not gonna be where you find strength – your strength is gonna be in a resurrected Lord. Simon, I know power now sounds good; fighting this out seems right; I know building a kingdom here gives you identity and worth and men’s acclaim, but His way is right, and it’s meek and lowly. It’s not by the sword; it’s not wrestling with people or standing tall. Paul’s self-will stands out amongst all the apostles. He was warned against striving against the Christians by his teacher Gamaliel (Acts 5:38-39). But Paul won’t have it. He knows what he wants and what he can do. And in his self-will, he launches out to do his thing. And the Lord ask, “Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me? And he said, Who art thou, Lord? And the Lord said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest: it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks” (Acts 9:4-5 KJV). Peter had found those goads as well. They had pierced his heart again and again. But what I love most is how when both of these men turn their hearts and vision back to God, the miraculous happens. Paul will write copiously, mentor others, and bring the gospel to the world – he will be a shining light, shining brightly even until now. And Peter, consider him the first to bring the message to the world, the one to reveal Christ to so many on the day of Pentecost. There’s power in doing it His way, in letting go of your will and resting in His. #discipleship #ForgivingOthers #disciple #dailydevotional #jesussaves #faith #FaithInGod #discipleofchrist #jesuschrist #faithfulness #disciplemaking #faithful #faithblogger #dailydevotionalreading #dailydevotion #revival #HolySpirit #Christians #soulgrowth #faithwalk #called #calledout #calledtoserve #believers #prayforme #biblestudy #walkthrough #impact #jesusname #bible

The Battle Against Evil Is Already Won BY RICK WARREN — SEPTEMBER 22, 2022 FROM ETERNAL REALITIES Q “Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.” Romans 12:21 (NIV) When you’re faced with evil, don’t return it. Overcome it. This is opposite of human nature and what the world condones. When somebody hurts you, you want to hurt them back, right? When somebody hits you, you want to hit them back. When somebody slanders you, you want to slander against them. But God says that is not the way you’re going to win the battle against evil. Romans 12:21 says, “Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good” (NIV). That is God’s way of winning the battle. Jesus Christ came to Earth to show that you don’t destroy evil by retaliating; you destroy it by overcoming it with good. The Bible says, “The Son of God came to destroy the works of the devil” (1 John 3:8 NLT). Jesus came to obliterate evil. He came to wipe it out. Evil is going to end one day. It is not going to exist forever. One day God is going to close the books. He’s going to settle the score. He’s going to end history and take his family into eternity with him. If you want to be on the winning side, you better get on God’s side because evil is going to lose. Evil wins a few battles here and there, but the outcome of the war has been predetermined. Good and evil are not equal in force or competition. It may feel like evil is stronger and that evil is winning. But love is far stronger than evil. Kindness is far stronger than evil. Good is much greater than evil. Good will win the day a hundred times over evil. In the end, God and his followers will win. Good will triumph over evil because God is love, and his love will last forever. Jesus said, “I will build my church, and all the powers of hell will not conquer it” (Matthew 16:18 NLT). You can use goodness to fight evil because this is God’s promise: You fight against evil with the confidence that God has already won the war. Evil is going to lose. Victory is assured!

#DailyDevotions The Keys of Heaven, January 9 And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven.—Matthew 16:19. {HB 24.1} Jesus continued: “I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build My church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.” (Matthew 16:18.) The word Peter signifies a stone—a rolling stone. Peter was not the rock upon which the church was founded. The gates of hell did prevail against him when he denied his Lord with cursing and swearing. The church was built upon One against whom the gates of hell could not prevail. . . . {HB 24.2} “Upon this rock,” said Jesus, “I will build My church.” In the presence of God, and all the heavenly intelligences, in the presence of the unseen army of hell, Christ founded His church upon the living Rock. That Rock is Himself—His own body, for us broken and bruised. Against the church built upon this foundation, the gates of hell shall not prevail. {HB 24.3} How feeble the church appeared when Christ spoke these words! There was only a handful of believers, against whom all the power of demons and evil men would be directed; yet the followers of Christ were not to fear. Built upon the Rock of their strength, they could not be overthrown. {HB 24.4} For six thousand years, faith has builded upon Christ. For six thousand years the floods and tempests of satanic wrath have beaten upon the Rock of our salvation; but it stands unmoved. Peter had expressed the truth which is the foundation of the church’s faith, and Jesus now honored him as the representative of the whole body of believers. He said, “I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.” (Verse 19.) {HB 24.5} “The keys of the kingdom of heaven” are the words of Christ. All the words of Holy Scripture are His, and are here included. These words have power to open and to shut heaven. They declare the conditions upon which people are received or rejected. Thus the work of those who preach God’s word is a savor of life unto life or of death unto death. Theirs is a mission weighted with eternal results.—The Desire of Ages, 412-414. {HB 24.6} #HomewardBound (HB) -- beta.egwwritings.org -----

DO NOT BE DECEIVED It is no coincidence that the #AsburyRevival and the Jesus Revolution movie are happening in the same setting. The world and mainstream Christianity are preparing hearts and minds for a false messiah, and here is how you know. The Jesus Revolution is about the ‘Jesus movement’ of the 60s, 70s, and 80s that grew out of the ‘Charismatic movement’ in 1960, launched by the more recognized Protestants AND Roman Catholics. During this era, the idea that the supernatural ability to speak in tongues came to many yet, without any interpretation—as mandated in the Holy Scriptures (1 Corinthians 14:27). And most notably, there was a widely accepted belief that somehow ‘the church’ lost its spiritual vitality, evident by the rise in immorality in #America and a revival would be needed to restore holiness. However, the real Messiah professed that the gates of hell would not prevail against His ‘Church’ (Matthew 16:18), and therefore it would be scripturally impossible to lose its power. From the Jesus movement/revolution came various denominations, of which there are about 45,000 today, all who preach/teach some variation of the Gospel, which is, without question—confusing. Yet, the scriptures declare, “Elohim is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.” —1 Corinthians 14:33 Out of the establishment of these many denominations grew the political battle between the utterly unbiblically erected Christian conservative right and social justice left. Sadly, many have been deceived. The wicked one who has transformed himself into an angel of light (2 Corinthians 11:14-15) leads many to conveniently use post-New Covenant—Christ—demonstrations and scriptures such as 2 Chronicles 7:14 to support the will of the flesh/satan. Damnably, out-of-context messages stir emotions to bring a false hope for healing to a world dying by the will of the God of Heaven, whom they profess to believe in (2 Peter 3). Make no mistake. The world is amid the most extraordinary convergence of the most significant birth pains of all the signs of the times before the great tribulation (Matthew 24). Yet, worldly accepted Christianity is praying for peace, justice, and unity—the same prayers of the children of disobedience. Total deception! It’s time to break free from the comfortable church narrative. What many are praying to keep or restore will be controlled by the man of sin—the false savior. And just like the solution Christians will take the mark of the beast to hold on to what they deem near and dear to avoid inconvenience—convincing themselves that it’s okay—claiming it’s for the greater good and God knows their heart. #DoNotBeDeceived #Repent #SetApart #Holiness #EndTimes #StudyTheWordOfGod #Remnant #Biblical #Truth #JesusRevolution #KnowTheWordOfGod

From the Jesus movement/revolution came various denominations, of which there are about 45,000 today, all who preach/teach some variation of the Gospel, which is, without question—confusing. Yet, the scriptures declare, “Elohim is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.” —1 Corinthians 14:33 Out of the establishment of these many denominations grew the political battle between the utterly unbiblically erected Christian conservative right and social justice left. Sadly, many have been deceived. The wicked one who has transformed himself into an angel of light (2 Corinthians 11:14-15) leads many to conveniently use post-New Covenant—Christ—demonstrations and scriptures such as 2 Chronicles 7:14 to support the will of the flesh/satan. Damnably, out-of-context messages stir emotions to bring a false hope for healing to a world dying by the will of the God of Heaven, whom they profess to believe in (2 Peter 3). Make no mistake. The world is amid the most extraordinary convergence of the most significant birth pains of all the signs of the times before the great tribulation (Matthew 24). Yet, worldly accepted Christianity is praying for peace, justice, and unity—the same prayers of the children of disobedience. Total deception! It’s time to break free from the comfortable church narrative. What many are praying to keep or restore will be controlled by the man of sin—the false savior. And just like the solution Christians will take the mark of the beast to hold on to what they deem near and dear to avoid inconvenience—convincing themselves that it’s okay—claiming it’s for the greater good and God knows their heart. #DoNotBeDeceived #Repent #SetApart #Holiness #EndTimes #StudyTheWordOfGod #Remnant #Biblical #Truth #JesusRevolution #KnowTheWordOfGod

DO NOT BE DECEIVED It is no coincidence that the #AsburyRevival and the Jesus Revolution movie are happening in the same setting. The world and mainstream Christianity are preparing hearts and minds for a false messiah, and here is how you know. The Jesus Revolution is about the ‘Jesus movement’ of the 60s, 70s, and 80s that grew out of the ‘Charismatic movement’ in 1960, launched by the more recognized Protestants AND Roman Catholics. During this era, the idea that the supernatural ability to speak in tongues came to many yet, without any interpretation—as mandated in the Holy Scriptures (1 Corinthians 14:27). And most notably, there was a widely accepted belief that somehow ‘the church’ lost its spiritual vitality, evident by the rise in immorality in #America and a revival would be needed to restore holiness. However, the real Messiah professed that the gates of hell would not prevail against His ‘Church’ (Matthew 16:18), and therefore it would be scripturally impossible to lose its power.
