Watch “PRAYING ALWAYS (1 Timothy 2:1-8)” on YouTube

PRAYER is the SPIRIT of God, in us, communicating with God to establish His PURPOSE; first in our lives and then in the world. "For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the THINGS OF GOD KNOWETH NO MAN, but the SPIRIT OF GOD" (1 Corinthians 2:11)

BONDAGE OF CORRUPTION

1. When God laid the foundations of this world, there was so much HOPE and JOY, “Where wast thou when I laid the FOUNDATIONS OF THE EARTH? declare, if thou hast understanding. When the MORNING STARS SANG together, and all the SONS of God SHOUTED FOR JOY?” [Job 8:4-7] The JOY was cut short by SIN, opening the door to the CURSE which subjected NATURE to BONDAGE OF CORRUPTION, as it is written: “… Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it; CURSED BE THE GROUND for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life” [Genesis 3:17] The daily tribulations of living in a world enslaved to CORRUPTION and DEATH is the SIN occasioned by DECEPTION. The Serpent DECEIVED Man, but God was not caught unawares, as some think; He allowed the error, that He might perfect the work of REDEMPTION in those who live in HOPE of His SALVATION, “For the creature was made subject to vanity, NOT WILLINGLY, but by reason of him who hath SUBJECTED the same in HOPE, Because the creature itself also shall be DELIVERED FROM the BONDAGE OF CORRUPTION into the glorious LIBERTY of the children of God” [Romans 8:20-21] 

2. The mosquito was not created to infect people with malaria or the lion to savage antelopes, “And God saw EVERY THING THAT HE HAD MADE, and, behold, it was VERY GOOD …” [Genesis 1:31] When SIN overthrew CREATION with CORRUPTION the personality of the BEAST was impressed on NATURE. The BEAST in NATURE is the character of Satan; it is the reason the world is ravaged by poverty, disease, strife and wars. Listen closely, no plant was created to be poisonous or used to produce psychedelic drugs but food, “And God said, Behold, I have given you EVERY HERB bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and EVERY TREE, in the which is the FRUIT of a tree yielding seed; TO YOU IT SHALL BE MEAT” [Genesis 1:29] No cell or virus was formed to kill but do contrary, even as we, knowing what is GOOD to do, do the opposite, “Now if I do that I would not, IT IS NO MORE I THAT DO IT, BUT SIN that dwelleth in me. … O WRETCHED MAN that I am! WHO SHALL DELIVER ME from the body of this DEATH?’ [Roman 7:20-24] Friend, be of good cheer, God foreknew SIN world come and made a WAY for us who were once separated from His goodness to be RECONCILED to Him through Jesus Christ, “For it pleased the Father that IN HIM SHOULD ALL FULNESS DWELL; And, having made PEACE THROUGH THE BLOOD of his cross, by him to RECONCILE ALL THINGS unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven” [Colossians 1:19-20]

3. We all came into the world saddled with the yoke of SIN, enslaved to DEATH, “For ALL HAVE SINNED and come short of the glory of God; Being JUSTIFIED FREELY by his GRACEe through the REDEMPTION redemption that is in Christ Jesus:” [Romans 3:23-24] We were DEAD ON ARRIVAL, “FOR THE WAGES OF SIN IS DEATH”, DEAD to God because SIN dwelt in us [Romans 6:23] This BODY we cherish so much is the BODY of DEATH [Romans 7:24] The only ONE who could SAVE us is God; He had to be like us to overcome SIN in this BODY and conquer DEATH, “Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of FLESH and BLOOD, he also HIMSELF TOOK PART OF THE SAME; that through DEATH he might DESTROY HIM that had the POWER OF DEATH, that is, the DEVIL” [Hebrews 2:14] God was manifest in Jesus Christ, and by His DEATH on the Cross paid the “WAGES” of our SIN; It is a MYSTERY, “And without controversy great is the MYSTERY OF GODLINESS: GOD WAS MANIFEST in the FLESH, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory” [1 Timothy 3:16] We are no longer in BONDAGE OF CORRUPTION, to who the MYSTERY is revealed and do believe “GOD WAS MANIFEST IN THE FLESH” to REDEEM us. When we BELIEVED, we DIED with Him and because He ROSE from DEATH, so did we, to live forever in NEWNESS OF LIFE, “Therefore we are BURIED WITH HIM by baptism into death: that like as Christ was RAISED FROM THE DEAD by the glory of the Father, even so we also should WALK in NEWNESS OF LIFE” [Romans 6:4]

4. We are no longer slaves to CORRUPTION, and in us dwells the LIFE of God, “… we have this TREASURE in EARTHEN VESSELS, that the EXCELLENCY of the POWER may be of God, and not of us” [2 Corinthians 4:7] “EARTHEN VESSELS” indicate the fragility of our present BODY, in which we GROAN in PAINS subject to diverse temptations and afflictions of living in a dying world. We are not alone, all creation TRAVAIL and desire to be restored to days of “HEAVEN ON EARTH”, and we, to be clothed with our HEAVENLY BODY, “For we know that the whole CREATION GROANETH and TRAVAILETH in PAIN together until now. And not only they, but URSELVES also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the ADOPTION, to wit, the REDEMPTION OF OUR BODY” [Romans 8:22-23] If truly we have received Christ, let us make diligent preparations to be approved at Christ’s appearance, when we shall be clothed with glory. We shall be transformed, and at His command all creation shall be changed, “The WOLF also shall DWELL with the LAMB, and the LEOPARD shall lie down with the KID; and the SAL and the young LION and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them” [Isaiah 11:6] Finally, I warn you to beware of some who promise LIBERTY, but are “… SERVANTS OF CORRUPTION: for of whom a MAN IS OVERCOME, of the same is he brought in BONDAGE” [2 Peter 2:19]

5. Accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and SAVIOUR, Amen.

KINGDOMS OF THIS WORLD

1. Satan, in his bid to TEMPT Jesus, took “… him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the KINGDOMS OF THE WORLD, and the GLORY of them” [Matthew 4:8] Without controversy, there are countless realms, seem and unseen, but only one supreme POTENTATE, who “… CHANGETH the TIMES and the SEASONS he REMOVETH kings, and SETTETH up kings: he giveth WISDOM unto the WISE, and KNOWLEDGE to them that know UNDERSTANDING” [Daniel 2:21] The ONE who “REMOVETH kings, and SETTETH up kings” is God, made known first to His angels in the FIRSTBEGOTTEN and to us as the LAMB of God. [Hebrews 1:6] Some of the angels resisted Him and the world took sides with His foes to make “… war with the LAMB, and the LAMB SHALL OVERCOME them: for he is LORD OF LORDS, and KING OF KINGS: and they that are with him are CALLED, and CHOSEN, and FAITHFUL” Revelation 17:14] In due season, we were CALLED out of KINGDOMS OF THIS WORLD, CHOSEN from the foundations of the world to inherit the KINGDOM OF GOD. Let us be FAITHFUL to Him that gave His LIFE for us; WAITCHING and PREPARING for the VOICE, “…  saying, The KINGDOMS OF THIS WORLD ARE BECOME the KINGDOMS OF OUR LORD, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever” [Revelation 11:15]

2. We are surrounded by an ETHEREAL world of thrones and kingdoms where Satan and sundry fallen angels hide their shame, “… the great DRAGON was cast out, that old SERPENT, called the DEVIL, and SATAN, which DECEIVETH the whole world: he was CAST OUT into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him” [Revelation 12:9] Though fallen, they retained their angelic powers with which they carved out thrones and kingdoms in the AIR. They turned their attention to men to subjugate in rebellion against God, “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against PRINCIPILATIES, against POWERS, against the RULERS of the DARKNESS of this WORLD, against SPIRITUAL WICKEDNESS in HIGH PLACES” [Ephesians 6:12] Hidden from sight, kingdoms of the AIR operate through legions of disembodied spirits to MANIPULATE and CONTROL human affairs in rebellion against the purpose of God, “… even the HIDDEN WISDOM, which God ordained before the world unto our glory: Which none of the PRINCES OF THIS WORLD knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory” [1 Corinthians 2:7-8] With demonic CIVILIZATIONS and false RELIGION, they draw multitudes away from TRUTH, “Having the UNDERSTANDING DARKENED, being ALIENATED from the LIFE of God through the IGNORANCE that is in them, because of the BLINDNESS of their heart” [Ephesians 4:18] If any man has not the LIFE OF GOD in himself, he is BLINDED and IGNORANT of these things.

3. Earthly kingdoms and civilizations operate in the permissive WILL of God; when man fell in Eden, he lost his DOMINION to his adversary. Four thousand years later, “Jesus answered, My KINGDOM IS NOT OF THIS WORLD: IF MY KINGDOM WERE OF THIS WORLD, THEN WOULD MY SERVANTS FIGHT, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence” [John 18:36] We were born into KINGDOMS OF THIS WORLD, disobedient to God, in subjection to the Prince of the AIR, “… the SPIRIT NOW WORKETH in the CHILDREN OF DISOBEDIENC Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the LUSTS of our flesh, fulfilling the DESIRESs of the FLESH and of the MIND; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others” [Ephesians 2:2-3] If by GRACE through FAITH we are BORN AGAIN, we are no longer of “THIS WORLD”, that we should be ENTANGLED in the affairs of this world. We are in the world, as long as we are in this BODY, but we are not of this world; our VALUES, HOPES and ASPIRATIONS are of the KINGDOM of God. If any man professes Christ and for any reason ensnares himself in the affairs of “THIS WORLD”, he deceives himself, “For if after they have escaped the POLLUTIONS of the WORLD through the KNOWLEDGE of the LORD and SAVIOUR Jesus Christ, they are again ENTANGLED THEREIN, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning” [2 Peter 2:20]

4. KINGDOMS OF THIS WORLD are doomed, as God had promised, “… saying, Yet once more I SHAKE not the EARTH only, but also HEAVEN. … as of things that are MADE, that those things which cannot be shaken may REMAIN. And this word, Yet once more, signifieth the removing of those things that are shaken” [Hebrews 12:26-27] The “SHAKING” has commenced; thrones and dominions “MADE” in ethereal “HEAVENS” are ”SHAKEN” as UNTIMELY FIGS “And the STARS of HEAVEN FELL unto the EARTH, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind” [Revelation 6:13] Present general instability across the globe is more than human error, hordes of hell are actively engaged; they know they have but a SHORT TIME, “… Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the DEVIL IS COME DOWN unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a SHORT TIME” [Revelation 12:12] Beloved, HOLD TIGHT to your FAITH in Christ, preparing with all diligence for His imminent appearance when we shall be glorified “No man that warreth ENTANGLETH HIMSELF with the AFFAIRS of this LIFE; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier” [2 Timothy 2:3-4] Are you BRON AGAIN? Now is the time to turn to the Lord Jesus Christ, for “… the WORLD PASSETH AWAY, and the LUST thereof: but HE that DOETH the WILL of God ABIDETHE FOR EVERr” [1 John 2:16-17] Amen

SOUND DOCTRINE, like SALT, is rendered useless when blended with MERCANTILISM, extreme NATIONALISM, CULTURE, etc., and if "...  SALT have lost his SAVOUR, wherewith shall it be SALTED? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be CAST OUT, and to be trodden under foot of men" Matthew 5:13

SEASON OF FALSE CHRISTS

1. We live in pretty peculiar times; an exponential increase in KNOWLEDGE but UNDERSTANDING is “SHUT UP”, “But thou, O Daniel, SHUT UP the WORDS, and SEAL the BOOK, even to the TIME of the END: many shall run to and fro, and KNOWLEDGE shall be INCREASED” [Daniel 12:4] The Bible is translated in virtually all languages, the GOSPEL is preached in all nations via the internet, but FAITH is scarce because UNDERSTANDING required to navigate “TIME of the END” is “HID” in the labyrinth of PROPHECY. There is palpable FEAR and CONFUSION because those who should know are ignorant of the PROPHETIC DATELINE, as it is written: “… IF THOU HADST KNOWN, even thou, at least in THIS THY DAY, the things which belong unto thy PEACE! but now they are HID FROM THINE EYES” Luke 19:42] While the world staggers from pandemic to wars and rumours of war, SEASON OF FALSE CHRISTS creeps on the world to add fuel to the fire of confusion; “For there shall arise FALSE CHRISTS, and false prophets, and shall shew great SIGNS and WONDERS; insomuch that, IF IT WERE POSSIBLE, they shall DECEIVE the very ELECT” [Matthew 24:24]

2. Satan was the first FALSE CHRIST; PERFECT in his ways, until SELF INTEREST was found in him, “For thou hast SAID in THINE HEART, I will ASCEND into HEAVEN, I WILL EXALT my THRONE above the STARS of God: I WILL SIT also upon the MOUNT of the CONGREGATION, in the sides of the north: I WILL ASCEND above the heights of the CLOUDS; I WILL be LIKE the MOST HIGH” [Isaiah 14:13-14] Satan nowhere said he wanted to be GREATER than God; his INTENTION was to be “LIKE” God. This ordinarily would be “GOOD INTENTION”, not so with God, it was unpardonable; it turned him to a FALSE CHRIST. Those who replace total SUBMISSION to DIVINE WILL with human WISDOM run contrary to the “… FOUNDATION of the APOSTLES and PROPHETS, Jesus Christ himself being the chief CORNER STONE; In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an HOLY TEMPLE in the Lord” [Ephesians 2:20-22] The ELECT have a sure PATTERN in Christ’s Apostles and Prophets, by which we are built up into “an HOLY TEMPLE”, not so FALSE CHRISTS. They openly profess Anti-Christ but inwardly at variance to the heavenly PATTERN. Whereas FOUNDATION of Apostles was established in faithful men, raised in the likeness of Christ, FALSE CHRISTS rejoice in grandiose temples of brick and mortar, ”… I have laid the FOUNDATION, and another buildeth thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon. For OTHER FOUNDATION CAN NO MAN LAY than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ” [1 Corinthians 3:10-11]

3. FALSE CHRISTS are like trees having radiant flowers, but bear FRUIT strange to the farmer “Ye shall KNOW THEM BY THEIR FRUITS. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?” [Matthew 7:16] Like bees attracted to FLOWERS, they allure with GIFTS but are divorced from the ANOINTING which is able to raise FRUIT in the likeness of Christ. Listen closely, GIFTS are freely given, ANOINTING is the SEAL of Christ’s approval. Again, GIFTS without ANOINTING is WITCHCRAFT and many were DECEIVED in Samaria by Simon, “… To whom they all gave heed, from the least to the greatest, saying, This MAN is the great POWER OF GOD. And to him they had regard, because that of long time he had BEWITCHED them with SORCERIES” [Acts 8:9-11] Watch out for Preachers who loom so large over the Church, the flocks no longer see Christ but the Pastor. They celebrate Christ in their liturgy but inwardly are OVERCOME of SELF INTEREST, binging many into cruel bondage with lofty words of vanity, “While they PROMISE THEM LIBERTY, they themselves are the SERVANTS OF CORRUPTION: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in BONDAGE” [2 Peter 2:19] Beloved, beware of those who peddle CATECHISM OF LUST in the name of the Lord, they ENTICE you with what is GOOD, PLEASANT and DESIREABLE to rob you of ETERNAL LIFE. In like manner, Eve was DECEIVED, “… the woman saw that the tree was GOOD for FOOD, and that it was PLEASANT to the EYES, and a tree to be DESIRED to make one WISE, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat … [Genesis 3:5-7]

4. No man is too big to fall; Satan was the “ANOINTED CHERUB” and walked “… in the midst of the stones of fire. Thou wast PERFECT in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till INIQUITY WAS FOUND IN THEE” [Ezekiel 28:4] In like manner, FALSE CHRISTS were once good Christians, but fell, replacing OBEDIENCE with SACRIFICE as did Saul, “And Saul said unto Samuel, I have SINNED: for I have TRANSGRESSED the commandment of the LORD, and thy words: because I FEARED the PEOPLE, and OBEYED their VOICE. Now therefore, I pray thee, PARDON my SIN, and TURN AGAIN WITH ME, that I may WORSHIP the LORD” [1 Samuel 15:24-25] We are in the SEASON OF FALSE CHRISTS, a sure SIGN to prepare for the appearance of the Lord. Let the ELECT search their hearts and be vigilant, lest we be entangled in the hypocrisy of those who accommodate DISOBEDIENCE as strategy for Church growth, “… but God knoweth your hearts: for that which is highly ESTEEMED AMONG MEN is ABOMINATION in the SIGHT of God” [Luke 16:15] We must not be DECEIVED by a rampant generation of deluded Church-goers and their FALSE CHRISTS, as to be DISTRACTED from the TRUTH and imminent appearance of the Lord, “… for this cause God shall send them STRONG DELUSION, that they should BELIEVE A LIE: That they all might be damned who BELIEVED NOT THE TRUTH, but had pleasure in unrighteousness” [2 Thessalonians 2:11-12]

5. Accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour, amen
