"Partnering with the Angels."

 
 
 
 
"Partnering with the Angels."   Highlights from
Chapter 3, “Secrets of the Seer” by Jamie Galloway


 Jesus is King.  Although he came as a servant, He is now King.  God the Father, the Son and Holy Spirit are one triune God.  To ask God to do all the work himself is like asking the King to mow the lawn.  A king has servants and God has a host of heavenly beings.   


When the Kingdom of God is expanding, then the dominion of His rule expands, and the enemies of the Kingdom weaken. 


Jesus named the enemies:  Sickness, broken hearts, poverty, oppression and death. 


Angels heed the voice of His Words.  God wants to speak through you, because you are His voice on the earth to activate the heavenly kingdom. 


Psalms 102:19-22 The LORD has prepared his throne in the heavens; and his kingdom rules over all. Bless the LORD, you his angels that excel in strength, that do his commandments, hearkening unto the voice of his word. Bless the LORD, all you His hosts, You who serve Him, doing His will. Bless the LORD, all you works of His, In all places of His dominion; Bless the LORD, O my soul!

Angels wait and listen for the voice.  God’s words come out of our mouth.  Angels agree with God’s words and take action.


Matthew 18:16 But if they will not listen, take one or two others along, so that 'every matter may be established by the testimony of two or three witnesses.' 


We agree with God’s word, and speak and the angels hear from the Holy Spirit and move to do God’s will. 


There may be times we have entertained angels and did not realize it.  Hebrews 13:2 Be kind to strangers, for some have entertained angels unawares.

Various persons in the Bible did not consider it was an angel visiting until later. Peter was released from prison by an angel.  The angels who visited Lot came in the form of men.  Abraham did not suspect the three (3) men who came to announce that he would have a son, were angels until later.   


Elijah could see into the spiritual atmosphere and was able to view the army of the Lord on horses ready to protect them from the enemy. 

Angel visits were through out the Old and New Testament.  Angels shut the lion’s mouths and preserved Daniel. 


Angels came to minister to Jesus after he had fasted for 40 days.  Jesus was tempted and battled to keep his will tuned to the Father’s will. 


Saul who became Paul, saw a bright light that blinded him.  He heard a voice telling him where to go and what to do.   


Angels often appear as lights carrying gifts.  James 1:17  Every good and perfect gift is from God. This kind of gift comes down from the Father who created the heavenly lights. These lights create shadows that move. But the Father does not change like these shadows. 


Heaven is full of light and glory.  Often when angels appear they seem as flashes of light from the corner of your eyes.  Be aware next time this happens to you, because angels are all around. 


Hebrews 1:3  The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of His nature, upholding all things by His powerful word. After He had provided purification for sins, He sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high. 


Hebrews 1:13-14 Now to which of the angels has He ever said: Sit at My right hand until I make your enemies your footstool? Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation? 


Angels create an atmosphere for the presence of God.  The more you seek Jesus and His presence; it will be revealed to you, there is more than just knowledge that angels exist to experiencing a life filled with angelic activity.   Angels love to worship God and they join in when you worship Jesus.   


Entertaining angels is not worshiping them, but partnering with them to minister.


Angels refuse worship and John was chastised when he bowed to an angel.  “Only worship God for I am a servant like you are,” the angel told him.


Angels perform the Word of God.  Psalms 103:20 Praise the LORD, you his angels, you mighty ones who do his bidding, who obey his word. 


We speak God’s Word and angels respond.  The angel told Daniel, I have come because of your words.  Daniel 10:12  Declaring the Word of God brings heaven to earth. 


Angels are on assignment to ensure that God’s Kingdom is growing and to bring assistance so that Jesus is Glorified.   


Every time a work of God is done on earth by His people, the Kingdom expands and the enemy is weakened. We obey and acting out of generosity, cast a demon off an oppressed soul, speak life; bring healing to a broken heart or body;  Give to the poor, raise a child in grace and wisdom, we help expand the Kingdom of God on earth. 


When angels become aware of the works of God being accomplished, they step into a place of action.  


In the last days angels will preach the gospel.   Record numbers in foreign lands are testifying they came to Jesus after a vision, a dream or a visitation by an angel. 


Psalms 34:7  The angel of the LORD encamps round about them that fear him, and delivers them. 


Angels hear us speak and are activated to do God’s will on earth.  Angels are in motion as they hear God’s words through your voice.

How Does God Judge?



Please follow me at my new site:  CHEWING THE BREAD OF LIFE





Our Bible Study began with taking communion, and a reading from the Bible, about Remembering Christ’s death; that his blood was shed, and his body was broken for you and me. 
God was displeased with King Saul who in direct disobedience had taken it upon himself to light the sacrifice.  God’s judgment was to lift the Holy Spirit from King Saul.  Instead, a spirit of melancholy and jealousy troubled him.  Samuel was sent to the house of Jesse, because one of his sons was to become anointed as a new king. 


1 Samuel 16:1 The LORD said to Samuel, "How long will you mourn for Saul, since I have rejected him as king over Israel? Fill your horn with oil and be on your way; I am sending you to Jesse of Bethlehem. I have chosen one of his sons to be king."


God was pleased with David’s son Solomon who later became king, but God warned him:   1 Chronicles 28:9 "And you, my son Solomon, acknowledge the God of your father, and serve him with wholehearted devotion and with a willing mind, for the LORD searches every heart and understands every desire and every thought. If you seek him, he will be found by you; but if you forsake him, he will reject you forever.


Peter reminds us that we are special.  God has chosen to dwell in us and we are in Him.  Jesus reminded us that He is in the Father, and the Father in Him, and He is in us; by the Holy Spirit.


1 Peter 2:9 You are God's chosen and special people. You are a group of royal priests and a holy nation. God has brought you out of darkness into his marvelous light.


As Jesus ministered on earth, many of the Religious leaders judged him.  They accused Him of having a devil, and that he was preaching strange doctrine.


Jesus said in the law it is written by 2 or 3 witness’s truth will be made known.


John 8:15-19  “You judge according to the flesh; I am not judging anyone. “But even if I do judge, My judgment is true; for I am not alone in it, but I and the Father who sent Me. “Even in your law it has been written that the testimony of two men is true. “I am He who testifies about Myself, and the Father who sent Me testifies about Me.” So they were saying to Him, “Where is Your Father?” Jesus answered, “You know neither Me nor My Father; if you knew Me, you would know My Father also.”


Jesus spoke of his death, and that soon He would be leaving.  The people and also his disciples did not understand and they questioned, where is he going?  Why does he say in a little while?


Jesus confronted them, because he knew they wanted to kill him.  The leaders denied that anyone wanted him dead, but knew in their hearts that he was speaking truth.  The people claimed to be the seed of Abraham, but Jesus told them, if that were so, you would believe me, but because you do not believe, your father is the devil for he is a liar and a murderer from the beginning. They thought as long as they did not steal and murder they would be okay.


The Jewish people were attacking Jesus very being and especially His words; feeling that they justified in trying to kill Jesus.  They told Jesus, you are not yet fifty years old, and how can you speak of being with Abraham?  Jesus said, before Abraham was, “I AM.”  Jesus was using the Old Testament name of God that was given to Moses, (tell them “I AM” has sent you.)  This statement placed Jesus as God and they knew his meaning.  Now they were serious about putting Him to death – saying he blasphemed.


Jesus willingly took the assignment to go to the cross and shed His blood, and his body to be broken.  Upon his resurrection, Jesus became our High Priest.  The Priest could not enter the Holy of Holies unless he was without sin and had been purified.


Romans 5:17 For if by one man's offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in LIFE by one, Jesus Christ.


Samuel came to anoint David to become the new King.  God said, “Don’t look on the face or his height.  God had rejected King Saul because of his sins.  The Lord looks on the heart and chose Solomon to become the next king. 


Understand that when you accept Jesus as your Lord that he creates in you a clean heart.  Jesus intercedes in heaven for you that your faith will not fail. 


Allow the Holy Spirit to show you how to respond when you are challenged for your faith. 


Keep your heart (attitude) right and your ears ready to hear the voice of the Holy Spirit.

A Heavenly Language

I will still be using Chewing the Bread of Life Blog but am posting this message here as well - -




Does Heaven have its own language?  Is this Language more powerful than any other?
 
Speaking and Praying in other tongues is using a Heavenly Language.  Often others will hear in their own language your words, but what you speak and what they hear may be two different things.  To you it may be gibberish, but to the hearer it is a language.  Interesting !  

On YouTube is a very good message about Tongues and reasons for using this gift.


After viewing this very informative video, I had some thoughts that may interest you.

Remember Adam and Eve in the Book of Genesis?  What language do you think they spoke?  It must have been the same language that God speaks, and I doubt that it was English.  Consider that they spoke a Heavenly Language and communicated with God in God’s natural tongue.  This language had power and strength when believed to accomplish the impossible.  Adam and Eve took this language with them when they were escorted out of the garden.   

As people grew in number they decided to build a tower to reach heaven.  They were all speaking this Heavenly Language derived from the beginning in the garden.  God knew that they could accomplish anything they set their mind to do; and were in agreement with one another.  Even a tower to reach heaven?  Impossible you say, but God thought otherwise. 

God made a decision and that was to remove the Language of Heaven, bring confusion and disburse to everyone different earthly languages.   Now their communication with each other was like babble and they could no longer understand each other.  This resulted in a separation of groups each leaving with their family; going in different directions and the building of the tower stopped. 

When Jesus gave the 400 who gathered on the mountain the instructions to return to Jerusalem and wait for the Baptism of the Holy Spirit - - only 120 considered his commandment important.  We still have people today who feel this Baptism of Fire and speaking in other tongues is really not important, but Jesus thought it was extremely necessary.   
 
Jesus said, “You shall receive POWER after that the Holy Spirit Baptizes you.” 

The prophets of old prophesied that this out pouring would happen and that marvelous encounters with God would occur.   

What is the secret to the Glory and Power to generate the Works of God?   

God was restoring the Heavenly Language where nothing would be impossible to those who pray using their gift of tongues.  After Pentecost - - the Heavenly language would activate heaven’s door to open gifts that could be sent down from heaven to mankind with power to do the greater works of Jesus.   

Luke 4:18 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, and to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord 

Are you willing to activate the most powerful weapon in the armor of God?  It is to loose the tongue to pray in Heaven’s Language.  This language calls forth the angelic host to come and partner with you to do the miraculous.   

It is time to set aside your preconceived ideas that tongues are okay, but not really needed. 

Take note what is happening around you when you lay aside your prodigious traditional thinking and embrace the power that is available to you, in utilizing your Heavenly Language. 

Understand that knowing and doing are two different things.   Set aside time to pray using your gift. 

When I walk in my yard, when I drive my car, I sing in tongues, and generate a change in the atmosphere, so can you.

Praise in the Storm

From my notes I present a digested Bible Study at our church


 
 
Our Bible Study lesson began with Matthew 14:22-36, John 6:16-21 and Mark 6:47-51. These are three versions of the story about the disciples leaving in their boat without Jesus; as He stayed behind to pray.

The darkness of night plus the wind and waves of a storm were giving the fishermen deep trouble.  Suddenly in the shadows they could see a figure of a man walking on the water toward them.  Fear struck their hearts thinking this must be a ghost, but Jesus spoke and said, “It is I, do not be afraid, but be of good cheer.”  
 
Peter still doubting, but exercising boldness, said, "IF it is you, bid me come to you."  Jesus replied, “Come,” and with courage, Peter made that leap of faith and began to walk on water toward Jesus.
 
However the circumstances of life overcame Peter as he took his eyes off Jesus, and he began to sink.  Lord save me,” Peter cried.  Jesus reached out and lifted him up above his problems and together they walked to the boat.  Immediately the storm was stilled and the terrified disciples welcomed Jesus and Peter into the boat.  They worshiped Jesus, saying, “Truly You are the Son of God.”

Jesus was revealing to them His glory a bit at a time. 

The Children of Israel were just leaving Egypt and Moses requested God to go with them,  God said His presence would be with them in their journey.  Moses then asked to see the glory of God  Exodus 33:14-23  and God said:

“You cannot see My face; for no man shall see Me, and live.” And the Lord said, “Here is a place by Me, and you shall stand on the rock. So it shall be, while My glory passes by, that I will put you in the cleft of the rock, and will cover you with My hand while I pass by. Then I will take away My hand, and you shall see My back; but My face shall not be seen.”

Later Moses met with God for 40 days on the mountain, and just being in God’s presence caused his face to shine.  The people were terrified to see the glory of God surrounding Moses. 

We must not judge the disciples or the people who were frightened of the glory, because at times we too are guilty.  We hesitate to take that extra step and enter the glory cloud where the Holy Spirit will be able to show us great and mighty things.

The disciples did not understand that Jesus was to become the sacrifice for the sins of the World.  They were being told almost daily, but their understanding was thickened and dull. 
 
When John proclaimed “This is the Lamb of God who will take away the sins of the world,” their ears were not attuned to receive truth.  They had a different scenario in mind expecting Jesus to take over the government and become King, so they were not open to hear the message of death and resurrection.

We question and ask:  Why is there suffering, pain, fear, emotional distress and death in this world?  Does God do this? 

As we look at Job, we see that it was the devil that caused destruction to Job’s family and his wealth.  God allowed this to happen, but God did not cause it.  This was a test to see how Job would respond if he lost children and worldly goods.   During the pain and suffering, God revealed himself to Job and taught him that through it all, God was still there with him.  God asked Job to lean on Him.  
 
God also asks us to lean on Him.  Trust is strong and God is revealing his glory to us as we seek Him.

Jesus wanted to take his disciples to a higher level of faith - - no matter what circumstance we are facing.  The disciples were like a yo-yo believing and doubting even after Christ death and resurrection. 
 
Jesus gently was opening up their understanding as he taught them for 40 days.  At Pentecost they were infused with the glory of God and began to realize that there was more and God was making his power available to them.

If we are in a storm of life, may we learn to praise God IN the storm as praise and worship will bring us peace, because Jesus is taking us safely to the other side.

God’s Plan for 2018

From my notes I present a digested sermon as Pastor Allan ministered on Sunday.
 
 
 
The atmosphere at church was charged with the presence of God, and Pastor hesitated to pull away and begin preaching.
 
He began:  I don’t know about you, but 2017 for many of us, we experienced bad things; Sickness, death, fires, and threats of a flood and destruction.  But through it all, God was protecting, and keeping us in His care.
 
We try to figure out things for ourselves and maybe we would have done things differently, but we must enter a New Year with eyes wide open with NO regrets.
 
There were positive things too in 2017.  We were encouraged about the unity at the prayer service at the State Theatre. 
 
Our attitude is important as we enter 2018.   Know God has a good plan for you – A Hope in God.  He knows exactly His plans, but it is important to stay in His will.

Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
 
Psalms 50:15 Call upon Me in the day of trouble; I shall rescue you, and you will honor Me."
 
Understand that God always has YOU on His mind, for a good future, and that is good.
 
Jeremiah 33:3 Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.'
 
There are pressures, and we sometimes allow things in our life that should not be there.
God loves you and He desires you to be free from things that hinder you.
Psalms 145: 18-19 The Lord is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth. He fulfills the desires of those who fear him; he hears their cry and saves them.
This New Year, continue to have conversations with God.  He desires to prosper and bless you.  Realize it is the enemy who does not want God to bless you.
 
Learn to claim answers to your own prayers, and don’t depend on Grandma’s prayers.
God desires to bless you, but there are conditions.  Walk in His truth and in His Way.  Keep a tender heart and keep seeking God.
 
At Christmas time, we turned on the TV and there was a program about “Treasure seekers,” who have given all their fleshly life looking for what may or may not be there.
 
The truth is that the treasures of God are real and not fantasy.  His will is to bless and his plans are good.
 
Seek Him and know He wants to be found.  Your Heavenly Father knows you need certain things. 
 
Don’t worry about tomorrow, but seek first the Kingdom of God and all these other things will be added onto you.
 
One of my favorite things is to listen to others tell of the great things God has done for them.  Serving God is exciting, with out ever a dull moment.
 
Lastly I would encourage you to ask, “What can I do for God in 2018?  How much more can I give?  Pray for your neighbors even those in conflict with you.  Show God’s love to others.  You might not be able to change the world, but let God change you. 
 
Without Love all good works are simply nothing.  You are missing it if you are not ministering with love.
 
God loved us and gave us His Son.  Receive the fullness of His love.  All service to God in interlinked with love.
1.     God loves you and has a good plan for you.
2.     Operate in His will to know what his plan is.
3.     Go deeper in God, seek His face
4.     Love others.
 
You might say:  “You want me to go where?  To do what?  You want me to give up that?
If you really want a deeper level then we must be willing to obey.
 
But someone hurt my feelings !!   Honestly so was Jesus hurt, betrayed, beaten, criticized, but He did not allow his hurt to stop Him from fulfilling His destiny.
 
What is holding you back?  Are you willing to set it aside and step forward?
I encourage you to engage in prayer daily.
 
Realize God’s plan for you is Good.

NEW YEARS RESOLUTIONS AND HOW TO KEEP THEM



As I began to wake up this morning, the Holy Spirit began to speak to me and teach me; “How to Keep New Year’s Resolutions.”  I quickly got up and went to my computer to write it all down.  The Holy Spirit desired that I share this with our church today.  At church, I went to our Pastor and shared that the Lord has given me a word for today, and asked, "is it okay for me to have about 5 minutes."  He said yes.  I asked him if he would you like to review it? as I offered him the written paper.  “No,” he said, “I trust you.”  It was good he did not look at the paper, because that might have handy-capped him with his sermon today. You see, the Holy Spirit often is telling more than one person what He is desiring to say for that day and time.  Usually each person will have a different slant, but it will all fall in place.
~ ~ ~

Most of us have at one time made a New Years resolution, and by the next day we have broken it.  Our intentions were good, but the pull was just too great. 

We like Adam and Eve, have been given a “FREE WILL” or the power of choice.  We can by sheer grit and determination decide to make a decision to quit those things that have been giving us trouble.  We know the difference between right and wrong and some things are simply right and others are definitely wrong. 

Each year we make a list and say to ourselves, I will give up certain practices, and will stop doing this or that.   We grit our teeth, and lock our jaw and say, I will put this aside and quit doing this - - -  

In the past we have made those decisions by our desire and our “Free Will.” 

Now may I ask:  “How has that been working for you?  - - Hum-mm?? 

The power of Free will is strong – but I must tell you that it is NOT STRONG ENOUGH.  We make certain choices by our own self – our own weak and spindly Free Will and wonder why we fail. 

Today I desire to present to you God’s way to over come - - Once and for all - - and be FREE of those things that have held you down in the past. 

Not by our own will because our will is feeble, tired and exhausted, but by using the “WILL of GOD.” 

Jesus prayed in the garden;  “I give up, I surrender to YOUR WILL GOD.  Not my will but thine be done.” 

Some of us have walked in darkness in the past, but Jesus promises if we will follow Him and fully surrender to HIS WILL (not our will) then he will remove the darkness and place within us the LIGHT of LIFE which is the Will of God.  

John 8:12 “Jesus, said, 'I am the Light of the World. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness but shall have the light of life.'" 

So I lay before you a choice:   To use your FREE WILL and make a quality decision to SURRENDER your will to God’s WILL.  God's will is for you to be FREE, to be blessed and to prosper.  God's will is Good, and He desires only the best for you.

It is time to receive God’s Will, not your own will, and his strength, not your own strength, and you will be able to walk free for the rest of your earthly life. 

So in review:

1.  I will Surrender my own Will and exchange it for God’s Will.

2.    
I will Invite Jesus into the dark rooms of my heart bringing with Him; His Light of Life.
3.     I will Invite Jesus to live in me, the LIGHT of LIFE and daily I will allow the Holy Spirit to be my guide.
