Beloved in Christ Jesus, and dear friends,
This writing below, was a thought the Holy Spirit was sharing with me this morning, so I am sending it to you all, as the 'news letter for this month'. I pray that in this, you will receive from the Lord Jesus just what it is He wants to speak to your heart. It is, I believe, a word of wisdom so to speak, from the Lord to all of us, and a warning, to " not swallow the Placebo Satan hands out... Religion " ! False security. Thinking we are safe and sound, and all is well, while we are in a sleepy spiritual state, a Church without the power of God. A gathering where there are no miracles. I am speaking of the true miracles of God, not the pretense out there we all see everyday from so many different medias and so called ministers of the gospel. But the real, the true loving hand of Jesus Christ, the moving of the Holy Spirit among a people who's hearts are submitted to Him fully, and "seek first His righteousness, and not His hand, or what is here below."
I know that time is so very very short, and we must really walk in obedience to the Lord. Our service to others will just not have the Holy Ghost effect that will make us a tree of life, and bring healing to them if we are not "dead to SELF." We must know Christ and Him crucified, and understand and desire to move in the Spirit of God and not from dead religious works. It is not a business, it is a walk of eternal blessing, and mystery, and power and comunnion with our creator. He is the "Yes and Amen !
I know "my part," is hard to swallow for the flesh, and the devil in the Church, (and out of it as well), but I have to do my part. God sees it as a gift to the Church, His body, as He does the man who's part is an Apostle, Prophet, Pastor, Teacher, Evangelist .... All of us have a "part," even as 'ambassadors of Christ', and we as a Church, as brothers and sisters, as the one loaf, need to know what that part is and do it, and bring healing and help to all those we can, in and out off the body of Christ, and to bring glory to God. We are on 'one' time schedule.... God's !
Since He is eternal, and does not recognize time as we do, we must understand that when we truly walk in the Spirit of God, we then will move and flow with His will, and in His power, and in His glory and anointing and blessing one with another, and in our service to others as well, and we won't attach a schedule to it, but it will be to us a way of life. Life in Christ Jesus. Led by the Holy Spirit to do what God wants done no matter how big or small the thing may seem. But Satan in is 'unholy wisdom', seeks to destroy this way in Gods people, and bring in the "Placebo,.... "Religion." This is a walk of speculation, form, ritual, trying to analyze, and figure it all out first, and instead of walking in what God desires for the "moment," doing it "now," we must first think it over, and dissect it, and speculate. Which is all in fact, "arguing with God."
This passage of scripture below has always held great value to me (as many others have naturally), but perhaps it will bless you as you meditate on it and seek the Lord for revelation to your heart, and for grace to walk in this...
2 Corinthians 10: 3 - 6
3..For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. 4..The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. 5..We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ. 6..And we will be ready to punish every act of disobedience, once your obedience is complete. (emphasis mine).
Jesus said.... In John 10: 3 - 5
3..To him the porter openeth; and the sheep hear his voice: and he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out.
4..And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them, and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice.
5..And a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him: for they know not the voice of strangers.
Beloved, the voice of "strangers" are all around us every moment of the day. The voice of speculation, form, ritual, trying to analyze, figure it out, to doubt, to not believe, to except what religion teaches.... a powerless God ! Oh, they may speak of His power in their services, but it is not seen. They may say what a great God we serve, but there is no love, not the "God kind of love," but a perverted love, that will not speak out against sin, and will not bring forth a Word to challenge the hearer, but rather to give him another "Placebo." Then when someone does come along with the power and anointing of God, and tells the truth, they who have been on Placebos get very uneasy, disturbed, even angry... They have bought the lie. Religion !
In order for us, as Christians, as the Church, the one loaf, the body of Christ, the remnant of God, to be a tree of life to others, to walk in the power of God, and the anointing of the Holy Spirit, and the Love of God. We must stop listening to the lies of Satan, and stop the "Placebo Religion," of first having to put Gods will on trial... ! Place it on a schedule, think it over, analyze it, speculate upon it.... NO! We need to hear God and act on His will and Word in obedience without thought of Convenience or self ! We are not to serve self, but God. How can we hear His voice, and drag our feet to do His will through the walk of "figure it out first," or just dismiss it all together, and continue to just take our same seat in the pew every Sunday and swallow "Placebo's" ?
God has a great heart of love and mercy. He wants His body to flow in that, and do the works Jesus did ! After all, He said we would. He said we shall. First we must "unlearn the lie," (the Placebo), and truly believe what is written by the hand of the Holy Spirit in the Word of God, "is in fact the Word of God," and that He "WILL" perform it, if we act on it by faith, and not sit and speculate on it, and get comfortable. He is saying to His Church today, in this "Laodicean age"..... Wake up !
14...."To the angel of the church in Laodicea write:
These are the words of the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the ruler of God's creation. 15...I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other! 16...So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth. 17....You say, 'I am rich; I have acquired wealth and do not need a thing.' But you do not realize that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind and naked. 18...I counsel you to buy from me gold refined in the fire, so you can become rich; and white clothes to wear, so you can cover your shameful nakedness; and salve to put on your eyes, so you can see. 19....Those whom I love I rebuke and discipline. So be earnest, and repent. 20..Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him, and he with me. 21...To him who overcomes, I will give the right to sit with me on my throne, just as I overcame and sat down with my Father on his throne. 22....He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches."
Neither Hot nor Cold..... Placebo faith ! Remember, a 'Placebo," is something you think will help you, heal you, make you better, make you right... But it is all in the 'mind." It has NO healing power what so ever. Now you find out you have taken a Placebo, fear grips you, and you realize you have been duped ! Lied to ! Oh my, there is no help for me in this at all ! I need real medicine, I need something that will bring to me the help I need, to save my life.
John 10: 25 - 27
25...Jesus answered, "I did tell you, but you do not believe. The miracles I do in my Father's name speak for me, 26..but you do not believe because you are not my sheep. 27...My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. (emphasis mine).
Mark 11: 22 - 25
22.."Have faith in God," Jesus answered. 23..."I tell you the truth, if anyone says to this mountain, 'Go, throw yourself into the sea,' and does not doubt in his heart but believes that what he says will happen, it will be done for him. 24...Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. 25...And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive him, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins."
Mark 6: 12 - 13
12..They went out and preached that people should repent. 13..They drove out many demons and anointed many sick people with oil and healed them.
Mark 16: 15 - 20
15..He said to them, "Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation. 16..Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned. 17..And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues; 18..they will pick up snakes with their hands; and when they drink deadly poison, it will not hurt them at all; (divine protection), they will place their hands on sick people, and they will get well." (emphasis mine).
19...After the Lord Jesus had spoken to them, he was taken up into heaven and he sat at the right hand of God. 20...Then the disciples went out and preached everywhere, and the Lord worked with them and confirmed his word by the signs that accompanied it. (emphasis mine).
Beloved. When did God change !
Spit out the Placebo, Church, and walk with God, before the Lord, as He said, ...spits this unbelieving (placebo) Church out of His mouth ! For they are neither Hot or Cold. They are Luke warm. Cold does not even seek a cure, or to be following the truth. Lukewarm has taken the placebo, and has a "..Form of godliness.." as Paul tells us in Hebrews. They are the comfortable, indifferent, do nothing Church. What they do does not have the power of God behind or before it, because it is done as a religious work, with wrong motives... But the HOT.... This is the people of God, the remnant, the true believers of Christ. Those who eat the Word, (take it to heart), and act upon it. They do not pretend salvation or holiness, they are saved, and being saved. They are hungry for the righteousness of Christ in their lives. They love the Word of God, and can't get enough of it, they spend time with the Lord in sweet communion, and seek Him first. They are not on time clocks in their walk, they are not analyzing His Word, but walking in the demonstration of the Holy Spirits power... They seek godly wisdom as gold, and allow the Holy Spirit His way with them. They have learned to do warfare with the weapons that are divinely powerful, pulling down the speculations, and lofty things, (pride and religion), that raises itself up against the knowledge (Word), of God....
1 Thessalonians 4: 3 - 8
3..It is God's will that you should be sanctified: that you should avoid sexual immorality; 4..that each of you should learn to control his own body in a way that is holy and honorable, 5..not in passionate lust like the heathen, who do not know God; 6..and that in this matter no one should wrong his brother or take advantage of him. The Lord will punish men for all such sins, as we have already told you and warned you. 7...For God did not call us to be impure, but to live a holy life. 8...Therefore, he who rejects this instruction does not reject man but God, who gives you his Holy Spirit. (emphasis mine).
Look again... He who rejects, ignores, (does not practice), this instruction, has "rejected God." Is that what your bible says ?
1 Timothy 6: 3 - 5
The Placebo teacher
3..If anyone teaches false doctrines and does not agree to the sound instruction of our Lord Jesus Christ and to godly teaching, 4..he is conceited and understands nothing. He has an unhealthy interest in controversies and quarrels about words that result in envy, strife, malicious talk, evil suspicions 5..and constant friction between men of corrupt mind, who have been robbed of the truth and who think that godliness is a means to financial gain.
Remember beloved. "False doctrines does not have to be obviously brazen." The things these teachers "omit," from the Word of God, still leaves you with a Placebo doctrine. A powerless religion. A perverted view of God. It leaves you indifferent, complacent, "Luke warm." A false understanding of the true love of God. Then when you hear a man of God speak of discipline, repentance, judgment, your "Placebo" activates, and says... This is harsh, cruel, this man is not walking in love !
Hebrews 12: 7 - 13
7..Endure hardship as discipline; God is treating you as sons. For what son is not disciplined by his father? 8..If you are not disciplined (and everyone undergoes discipline), then you are illegitimate children and not true sons. 9..Moreover, we have all had human fathers who disciplined us and we respected them for it. How much more should we submit to the Father of our spirits and live! 10..Our fathers disciplined us for a little while as they thought best; but God disciplines us for our good, that we may share in his holiness. 11..No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it. 12..Therefore, strengthen your feeble arms and weak knees. 13.."Make level paths for your feet," so that the lame may not be disabled, but rather healed.
Revelation 3: 19 - 22
19..Those whom I love I rebuke and discipline. So be earnest, and repent. 20..Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him, and he with me. 21To him who overcomes, I will give the right to sit with me on my throne, just as I overcame and sat down with my Father on his throne. 22He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches."
2 Timothy 3: 1 - 9 This is 'one' example of the church eating Placebos
1..But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. 2..People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3..without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, 4..treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God— 5...having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with them.
6..They are the kind who worm their way into homes and gain control over weak-willed women, who are loaded down with sins and are swayed by all kinds of evil desires, 7...always learning but never able to acknowledge the truth. 8...Just as Jannes and Jambres opposed Moses, so also these men oppose the truth—men of depraved minds, who, as far as the faith is concerned, are rejected. 9..But they will not get very far because, as in the case of those men, their folly will be clear to everyone.
2 Timothy 1: 7 Good News....
7...For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline.
Beloved, there is no need to walk in fear. Fear of the truth, fear of dying to self, fear of believing God will do what he says He will do. No need to fear being deceived by the Placebo teachers, or Satan and his demons, who hand out nothing but Placebos to the Church ( 'that will settle for them' ), and not seek the truth... If you seek after righteousness, and will receive the truth from the Word of God, and are willing to lay your life down as a living sacrifice on the altar of Gods perfect will for your life, Church, ministry, family, and allow the Holy Spirit to have His way... You need not fear ! God will see you through these times we are in, and heal you, and meet all your needs, and lift you up at the proper time, and exalt your head above your enemies. He will hold you and keep you, and guide you with His powerful righteous right hand ! Jesus !
I sure do pray this will be a great blessing to you in some way....
We all have to fight the good fight. It is a walk of death, so that we might live unto Christ. We "must" take up our cross daily and follow him. It is a moment by moment walk with the mind of Christ, and being filled with His wisdom, and a walk of liberty and peace, and flowing with the Holy Spirit. We show that we have not come to this place yet, when we denounce a person for some small thing, yet we are walking in many unresolved things. This is the "placebo," it is a religious spirit to be sure...
Oh, it is true, that most, (if not all), who walk with this "Placebo" from Satan, called 'religion, hear the truth, yet choose to go into the "room of condemnation and gloom and despair," rather than receive the joy, and truth, and liberty, that has been presented to them. This still comes from a heart that wants to "tell what God says," (or they think he says), but does not submit to fully doing what God says............ So again, when this person hears the truth, they let it offend the flesh, and run to the false security room, and stay, until the danger is past. Then they come out, and resume their normal religious activity. Yet they continue to impose their religious thoughts, and speech, and wisdom, and walk, and teaching, upon others, while they remain in a religious bondage to the lie of Satan, and won't die to the flesh. They continue to compromise the truth.... They take another Placebo, and go on !
They pretend holiness, but do not posses it.
Go back to the passage of scripture above, and see again, how the weapons of God, will demolish arguments, and pretensions, (speculation, religion, and thoughts of the flesh), that set themselves up against the true, peaceful, loving, fruitful ways, of God.
I pray this will be an encouragement to you, and a revelation, and God call you to come and walk in this way of freedom and peace. We are all so wrong to say, or even think, how wrong another is, (even if they are severely wrong), or how "not like us they are," or "how against what we think, is God's way," yet, we ourselves are still slaves to the sin of religion and pride and self in so many areas....
God help us all, and His Church, to wake up, and stop believing the lie. It is a walk of LOVE. Period !
