Joh 17:11 Now I am no longer in the world, but these arein the world, and I come to You. Holy Father, keep through Your name those whom You have given Me, that they may be one as We are.
Joh 17:21 that they all may be one, as You, Father, arein Me, and I in You; that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me.
1Co 8:6 yet for us there is one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we for Him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, through whom are all things, and through whom we live.
1Jn 2:14 I have written to you, fathers, Because you have known Him who is from the beginning. I have written to you, young men, Because you are strong, and the word of God abides in you, And you have overcome the wicked one.
1Jn 5:7 For there are three that bear witness in heaven: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit; and these three are one.
Psa 19:7 The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul; The testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple;
Heb 7:28 For the law appoints as high priests men who have weakness, but the word of the oath, which came after the law, appoints the Son who has been perfected forever.
Heb 10:1 For the law, having a shadow of the good things to come, and not the very image of the things, can never with these same sacrifices, which they offer continually year by year, make those who approach perfect.
Jas 1:25 But he who looks into the perfect law of liberty and continues in it, and is not a forgetful hearer but a doer of the work, this one will be blessed in what he does.
This picture represents what I saw this morning when I looked at my Ring when it said that there was motion at my door. When I looked at my computer, the above picture is what I saw, only the background was brighter. It was so beautiful, I knew that it was from my Father above. It wasn’t dust in the sunlight either, it was a comforting and beautiful angelic presence. I decided to open my door to see if I could see it in real time with my eyes without a camera or window and …. it was still there. When I first saw it, I thought that maybe it was dust particles floating with the sunlight but no, this was a heavenly being. Today, my friends, God sent me an angel. I immediately ask God what I should do. As Samuel once said, “Here am I Lord.” Something good is going to happen to you my friends!
I prophecy to you today and God is going to send you prosperity and abundance of EVERY kind. In Jesus name. I believe that today, after many days of asking, God showed me my angel. Thank you Father. And may He send you yours as well. Here is a scripture for you today:
Blessed Is Everyone Who Fears the Lord
Psa 128:1A Song of Ascents. Blessed is every one who fears the LORD, Who walks in His ways.
Psa 128:2 When you eat the labor of your hands, You shall be happy, and it shall be well with you.
Psa 128:3 Your wife shall be like a fruitful vine In the very heart of your house, Your children like olive plants All around your table.
Psa 128:4 Behold, thus shall the man be blessed Who fears the LORD.
Psa 128:5 The LORD bless you out of Zion, And may you see the good of Jerusalem All the days of your life.
Psa 128:6 Yes, may you see your children’s children. Peace be upon Israel!

Rev 7:9 After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands;
Rev 7:10 And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb.
Rev 7:11 And all the angels stood round about the throne, and about the elders and the four beasts, and fell before the throne on their faces, and worshipped God,
Rev 7:12 Saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honour, and power, and might, be unto our God for ever and ever. Amen.
Let me start this beautiful day out by wishing you all a Happy and Blessed Valentine’s Day and many more!
Let’s open with Prayer and then take a look at Jeremiah 12:Chapter 1 (PRAY)
Jeremiah’s Complaint ( We all have some sort of complaint to God on various occasions don’t we?)
Jer 12:1 Righteous art thou, O LORD, when I plead with thee: yet let me talk with thee of thy judgments: Wherefore doth the way of the wicked prosper? wherefore are all they happy that deal very treacherously?
HERE, Jeremiah is giving God honor and glory for His judgments but as you can see, he wanted to talk to God about things that he didn’t understand about them. In our language it’d be “Hold up Lord, I need you to explain this to me.” WHY WHY WHY? (Like a little kid right?) Don’t we all have a time every now and then like that? Where you just have to ask God “What’s up with this mess Lord? I can’t take this anymore. Why does it seem that the evil ones do better than I do? Why do they have houses, cars and land and I am counting change for the bus every morning? Why are their children accepted at awesome colleges and I can’t even buy books for mine at a lesser college? Why do good people die so young, and evil, nasty, sinful people live so long that they brag about drinking alcohol, eating chocolate daily, or and some other crutch kept them going throughout the years?
Jer 12:2 Thou hast planted them, yea, they have taken root: they grow, yea, they bring forth fruit: thou art near in their mouth, and far from their reins (mind.) ~ Jeremiah is telling God how the evil people surrounding him take strong root with their false professions, speaking about God and calling themselves representing Him through their mouths but not with their hearts and minds. They are “do what I say but not what I do” people. They are like the preachers in the pulpit who get drunk or engages in porn after church is over.
Let’s take a look at the previous chapter, 11:12 and 13:
Jer 11:9 And the LORD said unto me, A conspiracy is found among the men of Judah, and among the inhabitants of Jerusalem. Conspiracy: a secret plan by a group to do something harmful or unlawful.
Jer 11:10 They are turned back to the iniquities of their forefathers, which refused to hear my words; and they went after other gods to serve them: the house of Israel and the house of Judah have broken my covenant which I made with their fathers.
Jer 11:11 Therefore thus saith the LORD, Behold, I will bring evil upon them, which they shall not be able to escape; and though they shall cry unto me, I will not hearken unto them. THEY WILL GET THEIR PAYBACK! HOLD ON LOVED ONES. TRUST GOD.
Jer 11:12 Then shall the cities of Judah and inhabitants of Jerusalem go, and cry unto the gods unto whom they offer incense: but they shall not save them at all in the time of their trouble.
Jer 11:13 For according to the number of thy cities were thy gods, O Judah; and according to the number of the streets of Jerusalem have ye set up altars to that shameful thing, even altars to burn incense unto Baal. (We now have the Altar of Baal in New York City placed there by our leaders in government.)
Jer 11:14 Therefore pray not thou for this people, neither lift up a cry or prayer for them: for I will not hear them in the time that they cry unto me for their trouble.
Jer 12:3 But thou, O LORD, knowest me: thou hast seen me, and tried mine heart toward thee: pull them out like sheep for the slaughter, and prepare them for the day of slaughter.
Jeremiah is telling the Lord, “You know me Lord and have tested my heart.” It is safe to assume that Jeremiah passed his tests just as we should. Keep your mind stayed on Jesus Christ. Preach Him, teach about Him, concentrate on Him, talk to Him, testify about His goodness….everywhere. Don’t be ashamed because God said in various ways that if we are ashamed of Him, He will be ashamed of us.
Jer 12:4 How long shall the land mourn, and the herbs of every field wither, for the wickedness of them that dwell therein? the beasts are consumed, and the birds; because they said, He shall not see our last end.
THE MAIN SCRIPTURE THAT I WANT TO EXPOUND UPON:
The Lord Answers Jeremiah
Jer 12:5 If thou hast run with the footmen, and they have wearied thee, then how canst thou contend with horses? and if in the land of peace, wherein thou trustedst, they wearied thee, then how wilt thou do in the swelling of Jordan?
God is telling Jeremiah and is still telling us today through this written Word that if we are complaining about the small things, how can we conquer the larger problems in life. God is saying to us, “Don’t sweat the small stuff.” And now that Jesus has come, gone and about to come again, we need not sweat the big stuff either. He gave us prayer, tongues via the Holy Spirit, His name, His power, why are we still complaining???
Jer 12:6 For even thy brethren, and the house of thy father, even they have dealt treacherously with thee; yea, they have called a multitude after thee: believe them not, though they speak fair words unto thee. (Even our family may talk about us from time to time and dirty our reputation but we have to “not stop” our work for the Kingdom and continue in the strength and power of the Holy Ghost.) As an example, I had a relative who used to record on his telephone, what my children and I would talk about in the privacy of our home and then he would take it to others and let them listen. That’s when the new cellphones came out and he was good at using one and showing off its properties. We didn’t know much about them at that time. He would start the conversation in a negative way and record how we would answer him. He even talked about his own loved ones and friends just to get us started. Well, with me being the truth-teller that I am, I would answer him according to what the Bible said about the situations. People don’t like to hear the truth. One thing I can say is that “I never lied!” That one young man turned a lot of people against my family over his actions. Be careful of your friends phones folks. If any lights are flashing, like the radio interviewer always says, ‘You’re on!” ~ He doesn’t know it but we knew of his shenanigans for years and just didn’t say anything about it. You can’t tell everything you know right? We kept that to ourselves. I actually allowed the Word of God to preach to those who listened 2nd hand to my voice. *Wisdom. I never said anything that wasn’t the truth anyway so…. Sometimes you have to use whatever platform God allows to open to you to preach the Word, in season, out of season, reprove, correct. And that was certainly an out of season time in the life of my little household but we got ‘er done. We learned not to sweat the small stuff. That was actually a lesson for us to learn about watching our words. People will try to set you up with your wording just like they did Jesus in:
Mar 12:13 And they send unto him certain of the Pharisees and of the Herodians, to catch him in his words.
Luk 11:54 Laying wait for him, and seeking to catch something out of his mouth, that they might accuse him.
Jumping to :
Jer 12:10 Many pastors have destroyed my vineyard, they have trodden my portion under foot, they have made my pleasant portion a desolate wilderness. (The church today…taking crosses off of their church to “fit in” with the world as not to offend anybody, allowing their praise and worship teams to sing the same music that the world sings and plays, etc.) Devil worship has entered the church y’all. It’s entertainment not worship.
Jer 12:11 They have made it desolate, and being desolate it mourneth unto me; the whole land is made desolate, because no man layeth it to heart.
Jer 12:12 The spoilers are come upon all high places through the wilderness: for the sword of the LORD shall devour from the one end of the land even to the other end of the land: no flesh shall have peace.
Jer 12:13 They have sown wheat, but shall reap thorns: they have put themselves to pain, but shall not profit: and they shall be ashamed of your revenues because of the fierce anger of the LORD.
Jer 12:14 Thus saith the LORD against all mine evil neighbours, that touch the inheritance which I have caused my people Israel to inherit; Behold, I will pluck them out of their land, and pluck out the house of Judah from among them.
Jer 12:15 And it shall come to pass, after that I have plucked them out I will return, and have compassion on them, and will bring them again, every man to his heritage, and every man to his land.
Jer 12:16 And it shall come to pass, if they will diligently learn the ways of my people, to swear by my name, The LORD liveth; as they taught my people to swear by Baal; then shall they be built in the midst of my people.
Jer 12:17 But if they will not obey, I will utterly pluck up and destroy that nation, saith the LORD.
To end, DON’T SWEAT THE SMALL STUFF! Endure and stay in prayer, praise and worship mode and God will fight your battles. Don’t try to pick anything up on your own. Let the Lord be your total overseer, He knows what you need. We say that a portion of God’s Holy Spirit lives in us but do we really trust His guidance? Listen, slow down, don’t fret, trust and believe, and God will handle your business, amen?
Are you saved?
Are you saved? Now is the time to accept Jesus Christ as your Savior. With all that is going on around the world, you need a friend. Jesus can be that special friend if you allow Him into your life. He is your helper and His Holy Spirit is your Comforter.
If you are not saved, just repeat the Romans Road after me: Say “Jesus, I repent of my sins, I am so sorry Lord. I believe that you died on the cross and rose 3 days later from the dead, just for me and I accept what you have done, I accept you as my Savior. Thank you Jesus, amen.” Now go find a bible believing, Holy Ghost filled church and learn of Him, it’s never too late. Your new life starts now. All old things are gone away. God throws them as far as the East if from the West. Now….go live, laugh and love!
Deu 30:6 And the LORD thy God will circumcise thine heart, and the heart of thy seed, to love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, that thou mayest live.
Deu 30:20 That thou mayest love the LORD thy God, and that thou mayest obey his voice, and that thou mayest cleave unto him: for he is thy life, and the length of thy days: that thou mayest dwell in the land which the LORD sware unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give them.
Joh 8:42 Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me. Isaiah’s Vision of the Lord
Isa 6:1 In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple.
Isa 6:2 Above it stood the seraphims: each one had six wings; with twain he covered his face, and with twain he covered his feet, and with twain he did fly.
Isa 6:3 And one cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is the LORD of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory.
Isa 6:4 And the posts of the door moved at the voice of him that cried, and the house was filled with smoke.
Isa 6:5 Then said I, Woe is me! for I am undone; because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips: for mine eyes have seen the King, the LORD of hosts.
Isa 6:6 Then flew one of the seraphims unto me, having a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with the tongs from off the altar:
Isa 6:7 And he laid it upon my mouth, and said, Lo, this hath touched thy lips; and thine iniquity is taken away, and thy sin purged.
Job 5:22 At destruction and famine thou shalt laugh: neither shalt thou be afraid of the beasts of the earth.
Job 8:21 Till he fill thy mouth with laughing, and thy lips with rejoicing.
Psa 37:13 The Lord shall laugh at him: for he seeth that his day is coming. Psa 59:8 But thou, O LORD, shalt laugh at them; thou shalt have all the heathen in derision. Psa 126:2 Then was our mouth filled with laughter, and our tongue with singing: then said they among the heathen, The LORD hath done great things for them. Ecc 3:4 A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
Deu 7:9 Know therefore that the LORD thy God, he is God, the faithful God, which keepeth covenant and mercy with them that love him and keep his commandments to a thousand generations; Deu 10:12 And now, Israel, what doth the LORD thy God require of thee, but to fear the LORD thy God, to walk in all his ways, and to love him, and to serve the LORD thy God with all thy heart and with all thy soul, Deu 11:1 Therefore thou shalt love the LORD thy God, and keep his charge, and his statutes, and his judgments, and his commandments, alway. Deu 11:13 And it shall come to pass, if ye shall hearken diligently unto my commandments which I command you this day, to love the LORD your God, and to serve him with all your heart and with all your soul, Deu 11:22 For if ye shall diligently keep all these commandments which I command you, to do them, to love the LORD your God, to walk in all his ways, and to cleave unto him; Deu 19:9 If thou shalt keep all these commandments to do them, which I command thee this day, to love the LORD thy God, and to walk ever in his ways; then shalt thou add three cities more for thee, beside these three: Mat 6:24 No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon. Mar 12:30 And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment. 1Jn 4:7 Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. 1Jn 4:8 He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love. 1Jn 4:9 In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. 1Jn 4:10 Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.
1Sa 23:21 And Saul said, Blessed be ye of the LORD; for ye have compassion on me. 1Sa 25:39 And when David heard that Nabal was dead, he said, Blessed be the LORD, that hath pleaded the cause of my reproach from the hand of Nabal, and hath kept his servant from evil: for the LORD hath returned the wickedness of Nabal upon his own head. And David sent and communed with Abigail, to take her to him to wife.
2Sa 22:47 The LORD liveth; and blessed be my rock; and exalted be the God of the rock of my salvation.
Psa 18:46 The LORD liveth; and blessed be my rock; and let the God of my salvation be exalted. Psa 28:6 Blessed be the LORD, because he hath heard the voice of my supplications. Psa 31:21 Blessed be the LORD: for he hath shewed me his marvellous kindness in a strong city.

Psa 124:6 Blessed be the LORD, who hath not given us as a prey to their teeth. Psa 128:4 Behold, that thus shall the man be blessed that feareth the LORD. Psa 135:21 Blessed be the LORD out of Zion, which dwelleth at Jerusalem. Praise ye the LORD. Psa 144:1 A Psalm of David. Blessed be the LORD my strength, which teacheth my hands to war, and my fingers to fight: Eze 3:12 Then the spirit took me up, and I heard behind me a voice of a great rushing, saying, Blessed be the glory of the LORD from his place.
Luk 19:38 Saying, Blessed be the King that cometh in the name of the Lord: peace in heaven, and glory in the highest. 2Co 1:3 Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; Eph 1:3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ: 1Pe 1:3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,
Joh 14:16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;
Joh 14:26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.
Joh 15:26 But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me:
Joh 16:7 Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.
Mat 5:10 Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Mat 7:21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Mat 10:7 And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand.
Mat 13:11 He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given.
Mat 13:52 Then said he unto them, Therefore every scribe which is instructed unto the kingdom of heaven is like unto a man that is an householder, which bringeth forth out of his treasure things new and old.
Mat 18:4 Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven. Mat 19:14 But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.
Psa 24:5 He shall receive the blessing from the LORD, and righteousness from the God of his salvation. Psa 45:7 Thou lovest righteousness, and hatest wickedness: therefore God, thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows. Psa 48:10 According to thy name, O God, so is thy praise unto the ends of the earth: thy right hand is full of righteousness. Isa 5:16 But the LORD of hosts shall be exalted in judgment, and God that is holy shall be sanctified in righteousness. Isa 41:10 Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness. Isa 61:10 I will greatly rejoice in the LORD, my soul shall be joyful in my God; for he hath clothed me with the garments of salvation, he hath covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decketh himself with ornaments, and as a bride adorneth herself with her jewels. Mat 6:33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Rom 1:17 For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith. Rom 14:17 For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost. 2Co 5:21 For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him. 2Co 6:7 By the word of truth, by the power of God, by the armour of righteousness on the right hand and on the left,
Gen 22:14 And Abraham called the name of that place Jehovah Jireh: as it is said to this day, In the mount of the LORD it shall be seen.
Pro 22:19 That thy trust may be in the LORD, I have made known to thee this day, even to thee. Isa 58:5 Is it such a fast that I have chosen? a day for a man to afflict his soul? is it to bow down his head as a bulrush, and to spread sackcloth and ashes under him? wilt thou call this a fast, and an acceptable day to the LORD? Jer 7:25 Since the day that your fathers came forth out of the land of Egypt unto this day I have even sent unto you all my servants the prophets, daily rising up early and sending them: Mat 26:29 But I say unto you, I will not drink henceforth of this fruit of the vine, until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father’s kingdom.
Joh 6:39 And this is the Father’s will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day. Joh 6:40 And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day. 2Pe 3:3 Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, 2Pe 3:8 But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. 1Jn 4:17 Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world.
Good Morning, Good Afternoon and/or Good Evening wherever you are. This is Rev Essie of New Birth Ministries and I am glad that you are listening today. I pray that your day is blessed and if it doesn’t seem to be going that way…..Bless it yourself! God lives in you. He gave you His Power so use it! I pray that you had a beautiful Christmas, I know that I did praise God. Today the topic is “Your mind can bleed you to death.” Get your Swords, a drink and a snack, and maybe a tablet and pen and sit back and I’ll be back to delve into this subject right after we invoke the Holy Spirit.
The subject today will cover something that is harmful to mankind and that is…Carnality. Don’t be so carnal that we can’t give thanks to God in every occasion!
2Sa 22:50 Therefore I will give thanks unto thee, O LORD, among the heathen, and I will sing praises unto thy name. 1Ch 16:8 Give thanks unto the LORD, call upon his name, make known his deeds among the people. 1Ch 16:34 O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good; for his mercy endureth for ever. 1Ch 16:35 And say ye, Save us, O God of our salvation, and gather us together, and deliver us from the heathen, that we may give thanks to thy holy name, and glory in thy praise.
I want to start this episode out with the proper terminology of carnality. And next Sunday will be the beginning of a new set of episodes so let me start out by saying to you HAPPY NEW YEAR AND MANY MORE! Because when we use our minds to do our daily chores and requirements of life, before we enquire of the Holy Spirit Who lives inside of us, we…. are living in carnality. Carnality/Carnal: carnal | ˈkärnl | adjective relating to physical, especially sexual, needs and activities: carnal desire.
Instead of getting up in the morning, thanking God for another day and other things that He’s done for us, some of us cater to our fleshly needs first. When we hop out of bed, grab a cup of our favorite drink or a bowl or plate of our favorite food, without first giving honor to God and praying to Him, we are operating from our carnal-selves rather than our spiritual selves. Kevin Zadai who has been on Sid Roth’s show many times and has his own Ministry and Prophecy School, says, “Train your mind to side with your spirit.” Notice he didn’t say, “Train your spirit to side with your mind” which, in doing so, one can quickly become spiritually destitute, or literally “spiritually retarded” and lack in every area of our lives. Christians are supposed to have some kind of “morality clause.” People are watching. When they see us act just like them, they won’t believe that we are Christians. Live holy, if you don’t the world will claim you as being one of them. If you say that you are a Christian and you live with your boyfriend or girlfriend, cuss and cheat, the world will see ‘them’ in you and not ‘Jesus.’
When we look up the word ‘retarded’ we see that it means, less advanced in mental, physical, or social development than is usual for one’s age. • The offensive version means to be very foolish or stupid: in retrospect, it was a totally retarded idea. But we don’t use that word too much anymore along with a few other terms that easily offends others. I know this may sound a bit harsh but as Christians, we should, by now, at least have our morning routines down pat. At least give God thanks, read some Word or say a good prayer, wash yourself clean, brush the halitosis out of your mouth and then take care of the your carnal needs. And I am not talking about sexual or immoral desires. Some people are committing adultery, fornication and self-gratification before they even get their day started and some even spend a good portion of their day committing these acts. Folks may think that it is ok to be perverted but God sees it all and His Prophets see it too. You can’t hide from the Spirit of the Most High. That includes the Men and Women of the Cloth who think that their secret sins are hidden from God or His people. FYI: The devil will make sure to reveal to people, your inconsistencies in SOME way. We will see it in what you watch on tv, the internet or your conversation. There are women who hoard attention or men who pit women against one another or even those who try to strike up jealousy. Their minds/thoughts are bleeding them to a spiritual death.
Your life is in your blood. Your blood, your life depends on what you feed it. It’s just like those who have to take medicine to cut the fat out of their blood such as Fenofibrate which is used with a low-fat diet, exercise, and sometimes with other medications to reduce the amounts of fatty substances such as cholesterol and triglycerides in the blood and to increase the amount of HDL (high-density lipoprotein; a type of fatty substance that decreases the risk of heart disease. I pray that these types of things are not bleeding anyone that we know or love to death.
When God created man, man had everything he needed to be a human except the Breath of God. Let’s read Genesis chapter 2 verse 7: Gen 2:7 And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul. That means that man’s blood was ‘still’ and non functioning until it received the ‘oxygen’ so-to-speak, the life, (God’s breath) that it needed to get started. God even gave us vegetation to keep us in healthy oxygen. After that, the blood began to run through man’s veins to his heart and his brain, organs, arms and legs, hair and nails. We need the Breath of God FIRST to be alive. Have you ever seen someone who has the appearance of being drained and dark? That’s because they aren’t getting fresh supplies of the Breath of God or they are rejecting it. When you look at some people there is something that seems to be missing in them. The Holy Spirit within you will discern that something is missing or out of sorts. Their minds aren’t stayed on Jesus. (Wishy-washy) Their minds are free to be dominated by the gods of this World, ie, television, radio, news, internet, gossip rags, and neighborhood scuttlebutt. They will not rest in Christ Jesus but continue to do what their minds or the voices around them tell them to do. Their minds are bleeding them to death, bleeding all of their life forces out of them because they refuse to give in to a Man/God (Jesus) Who died that they may be free of bad decisions and self-induced suffering. In Genesis even God rested on the 7th day. If God rests, we should too. We should rest from hard decisions, loneliness, worry and guilt and give it all to Jesus. And sometimes we have to REST-FROM-OURSELVES. Amen? People are overworked in these days, over-worried with this Coronavirus closing everything down, and some have been recorded as stressed, depressed and oppressed. That’s because they refuse to give all of their concerns to the Lord. Too many choose pills over prayer, being under the influence of man instead of God. Then you have those who just copped out of life. They got tired, miserable and weak and decided to just check out and leave the heavy things to someone else’s care and that person or those persons begin to tire out due to the much too heavy load. They find that they cannot pray like they used to or praise and worship God the way that they used to because their cup is filled to the brim with worries and responsibilities. It’s filled so full that if it were a cup of coffee they wouldn’t even be able to get it to their lips without dropping it.
I recently was watching one of the very few shows that I watch called “Burn Notice” where there is a team of ‘burned spies’ who work together to help people in need. One of the characters named Sam had gotten shot and was bleeding. The main characters, Michael and Fee had to tell him to stop trying so hard to continue to try to help them and finally rest so that he would not bleed to death. In this case, his mind was still working overtime trying to do that which his body could no longer properly do. His movements were causing blood to gush out of his body. What good would he be bloodless? How could he help the team being dead? And that’s what many people do today. They continue to try to do physical work without powering up their supernatural/spiritual abilities first. You cannot help anyone else if you are bleeding to death! Upon every attempted movement you will bleed out.
We have friends and family who are operating on their last legs, thinking that they are powerful and mighty yet they are depleted and energy-less. a. They need more study of the Word.
Churches are dead because their ministers are life-less and unknowedgeable of the salvation and healing power of the Most High God. Bruce Lee used to say, “Mind over matter” but I say, “Spirit over Mind.” Amen? Churches today are good in: a. Going through the motions without the power. 1. Pro 18:21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof. Ecc 5:19 Every man also to whom God hath given riches and wealth, and hath given him power to eat thereof, and to take his portion, and to rejoice in his labour; this is the gift of God. Ecc 6:2 A man to whom God hath given riches, wealth, and honour, so that he wanteth nothing for his soul of all that he desireth, yet God giveth him not power to eat thereof, but a stranger eateth it: this is vanity, and it is an evil disease. Eze 17:9 Say thou, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Shall it prosper? shall he not pull up the roots thereof, and cut off the fruit thereof, that it wither? it shall wither in all the leaves of her spring, even without great power or many people to pluck it up by the roots thereof. 2Ti 3:5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
In Jesus there is regeneration, a newness, rest, solitude and righteousness. He tells us to come to Him. He makes living easier. Mat 11:28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Mat 11:29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. Mat 11:30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
I took the liberty to research the word bleed | blēd | Bleed out: verb (past and past participle bled | bled | ) 1 [no object] lose blood from the body as a result of injury or illness: Let’s talk about those church injuries, family injuries, relationship injuries that we experience every day, amen? Sometimes you feel like someone took a Ginsu knife and sliced right through your heart but you keep going through the motions, slowly bleeding on others while trying to maintain your dignity. There are so many hurting people in the world. That’s why we have to be careful of what ‘voices’ that we listen to. “Hurting people hurt people.”
2 [with object] draw blood from (someone), especially as a once-common method of treatment in medicine. • remove blood from (an animal carcass): the first steer rolled out on the floor to be bled, skinned, and dressed. Be on the alert for people with the Vampire Spirit. It will hound and harass you with everything that it can do weaken you so that you will not converse with the Lord and get powered-up as God intends for you to be. They suck and suck the life out of you until it is no longer you that is living but a weakened version of the you that God intended for you to be. You live in fear, doubt and guilt. Nothing that you ever do is right or deserving to these people. They ride off of your ticket. They ride off of your wings until you are no longer flying but dragging through the muck and the mire. They don’t care because they don’t care about themselves to care about you. They are so nonchalant that they don’t even realize that everyone else can see how they treat you. Someone who is a repeat offender, a repeat loser so-to-speak could care less what others are saying about them. They drain your resources, your money, your time. As an example: his policy of attempting to bleed unions of funds. They bleed your funds. I know a nice man who has a son that NEVER stops needing him. The man is tired and cannot do it anymore. This young man is taking advantage of the man’s love and generosity. This young man is a blood-sucker, just like a mosquito. And he’s leaving an itchy, ugly mark all over the man’s name and life. But the son doesn’t care.
3 [with object] allow (fluid or gas) to escape from a closed system through a valve: open the valves and bleed air from the pump chamber. Letting off ‘steam’ is alright as long as you do it carefully and only to God Who understands. Not innocent people. Because you are bleeding, don’t cut somebody else. Don’t drain the life out of someone because you allowed someone else to do it to you. That’s the typical example of the green-eyed monster called jealousy.
4 treat (a system) by allowing fluid or gas to escape through a valve: bleeding the radiator at the air vent. bleed someone/something dry (or white) drain someone or something of wealth or resources: this car has been bleeding me dry | the industry had been bled dry by piracy. Their lives are slowly but surely slipping away. The Spirit of Python wraps itself around you until it squeezes all of the life out of you. You feel as though you can’t breathe. You lose hope. You have to bind these spirits in Jesus name, believe, and command them to never return to your loved ones or your household.
5 Unorthodoxical bleeding into one another. Unholy mixture as in: “I worked loosely with the oils, allowing colors to bleed into one another.” Leeches will cause others to look at you and wonder exactly where you stand. Make sure that you aren’t becoming or have become an enabler to someone with this character. The devil uses them to ruin your name or ministry just as he did Eli and his sons. Eli’s sons were bringing prostitutes into the Temple and doing all that was unholy and unbecoming of a Priests household. They didn’t care about how their Father felt or what his status in the church was because they didn’t care about themselves. They were what we used to call “the weak links” of the family and everybody knows it.
6 Printing (with reference to an illustration or design) print or be printed so that it runs off the page after trimming: the picture bleeds on three sides | [with object] : Faye showed us how to bleed the images for our brochure layout. When people look at the one being used and bled, they will not only see a picture of their righteous self but a mixture. Like a bleeding picture, people will see the evil beginning to bleed into that person’s persona. They will become double-minded and unstable in all of their ways until they repent and kick the blood-sucker in their minds to the curb. Their thoughts are now allowing them to live more carnally, giving up on being successful and victorious. They accept anything that comes by without being able to discern whether they are good or evil. They lose hope and others can see or hear it in their voices. They lose power and will go to anybody that shows them attention. They went from being filled with the Holy Ghost to being a half-filled glass. Containing a bit of the Spirit of God but not filled with Him wholly by exercising their relationship with Him. Are they saved? Yes but they are not reaching out to get as much as they can get from the Lord. God loves blessing His children. I want everything that God has for me Amen? Repentance is needed here before these people bleed out and die spiritually or even naturally. You ever hear the song, “Get right church and let’s go home?” Jesus is coming back for a church without spot or wrinkle. He’s coming for the Remnant and I am definitely going to be in that number.
Are you saved? Now is the time to accept Jesus Christ as your Savior. With all that is going on around the world, you need a friend. Jesus can be that special friend if you allow Him into your life. He is your helper and His Holy Spirit is your Comforter. If you are not saved, just repeat the Romans Road after me: Say “Jesus, I repent of my sins, I am so sorry Lord. I believe that you died on the cross and rose 3 days later from the dead, just for me and I accept what you have done, I accept you as my Savior. Thank you Jesus, amen.” Now go find a bible believing, Holy Ghost filled church and learn of Him, it’s never too late. Your new life starts now. All old things are gone away. God throws them as far as the East if from the West. Now….go live, laugh and love!
