THE BATTLE BELONGS TO THE LORD JESUS CHRIST!


THE BATTLE BELONGS TO THE LORD JESUS CHRIST!
Peggy Kannaday

Joshua 1:9, ‘Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.”

Jericho’s Wall fell down flat after Joshua’s army obeyed The Lord’s commands.’
Jericho was a very wicked city in the Land of Canaan or the Promised Land.
They worshiped Lunar deities, and they sacrificed their children, performed beastiality, and they were wicked beyond description. Only one woman and her family turned to God, and then they were saved from destruction.

The Wall around Jericho was 11 feet high and 5 feet wide.

The excavation of the site at Jericho by Kathleen Kenyon revealed evidence of the Biblical account as explained by “ChristianAnswers.Net’.

We know that Joshua’s first victory at Jericho was in total surrender and obedience to almighty God. It was miraculous in every respect, and it was the result of perfect harmony with the will of God and His timing. This battle is a lesson to all those who trust in God. There is no wall, no mountain, no army, no evil that can fight against our omniscient, omnipotent, omni present God of the universe.

We learn in Joshua Chapter 3 that The Ark of The Covenant which was Christ’s Presence went before Joshua and his army. God commanded the children of Israel to “sanctify” themselves because The Lord would do wonders among them.
JOSHUA 3:7 “And the LORD said unto Joshua, This day will I begin to “MAGNIFY THEE” in the sight of all Israel, that they may know that, as I was with Moses, so I will be with thee.”

We know that today; our societies are similar to the evil that was in the days of Noah. We also know that God laughs at the enemy’s attempt to destroy Him and His beloved people.

Psalms Chapter
1 Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?

2 The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying,

3 Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.

4 He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision.

Ps. 2:11 Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling.

My prayer for all those that love God and are called according to His glorious purposes.
No weapon formed against you or yours will prosper, and I pray that God will magnify you before your enemies, and I pray that He will fight the battle for you, and He will receive all of the honor and glory in Jesus’ mighty Name. Amen and amen.

The Power of Suffering!


coral vine MGD©he Power of Suffering!
by Margaret (Peggy)Henderson Kannaday

The Power of Suffering! Peggy Kannaday

Hebrews 5:8 KJV [8] “Though He were a Son, yet learned He obedience by the things which he suffered;” Jesus Christ is the greatest example and model of the power of suffering. He is the King of kings and Lord of lord, but yet He learned obedience through the things that He suffered. In short, suffering produces obedience to God. Obedience to God and His commandments signifies our love for almighty God. We have all heard the true life stories and testimonies of wonderfully strong and very courageous people who had tremendous suffering in their lives. However, they did not allow these adversities to deter them, but they by the grace of God; overcame all of their afflictions. Through this process; they became more faith-filled, more patient, stronger and stronger, wiser and wiser, and they learned to trust in The Lord Jesus Christ as never before. Count It All Joy: 2 “My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations; 3Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. 4But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing. 5If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. 6But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed “ (James 1:2-9). Those that try to live a godly life; will be persecuted. We are forewarned by The Word of God and so we are forearmed. When people try to criticize you for going through persecution. Remember, the Word of God, and do not receive their accusations. 2 Timothy 3:12 (KJV) “Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus “shall” suffer persecution.” Job’s friends were worried about “why” these things were happening to Job? However, the real question was why weren’t Job’s friends suffering any persecution? When you love the Lord with all of your heart and put Him first; you will be hated by the world and the anti-Christ system. They will lie about you, harass you, and they will try to destroy your good name, and if it is possible; they will kill you. However, they cannot kill a child of God until the Lord Jesus gives satan His permission and if it is the proper time for that child of God to go home. Remember to live is Christ and to die is gain or a promotion. Glory to God! “If the world hates you, know that it has hated me before it hated you. If you were of the world, the world would love you as its own; but because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you. Remember the word that I said to you: ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted me, they will also persecute you. If they kept my word, they will also keep yours.” —John 15:18-20 Many Christians suffer because of their disobedience to God or because they are not seeking The Lord first in their lives. They will suffer the consequences of their own wrong choices. God allows this to happen in order to discipline His beloved children and to teach them right from wrong. God disciplines those He loves just like good parents discipline the children that they love. “Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. “Blessed are you when others revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you “ (Matthew 5:10-12). To suffer because you are obeying the Word of God is a privilege, and it is an honor to suffer for Christ’s sake. When we suffer for obeying The Lord; we are to rejoice and be glad. We know that we will receive our reward in heaven. When we suffer for obeying God, then He will in turn defend us, bring us through the afflictions, heal us, work it all together for our good, and He will cause our weak areas to become our strengths. When we are weak; He is strong in and through us.

Suffering produces a dying to one’s self and our own selfishness. Dying to self produces the fruit of The Holy Spirit. When we die to ourselves; we live to Christ, and we gain His resurrection power to defeat the enemy and to be an over comer in our lives.

You are counted among the great Christians in history who suffered for righteousness’ sake, i.e. Joseph, Job, Daniel, the Disciples and the list is endless. Jesus Christ endured the suffering and the cross for the joy that was set before Him. We have a wonderful eternal life with Jesus Christ that is set before us. We cannot imagine the glorious blessings that The Lord Jesus Christ has prepared for those who love Him and obey His Word. My prayer for you: Dear Father, We love You, and we desire to obey You and Your Word with all of our hearts. We know that we will be persecuted because of this, but we know that You are working it all together for our good and for Your glorious purposes (Ro. 8:28). We thank You and praise You for allowing us to suffer a tiny bit of what You suffered on this earth. You suffered, betrayal, harassment, torture, slander, and finally a horrible death and You were perfect. You were without sin, and the only acceptable sacrifice for our sins. We praise Your holy Name, and we worship You with all of our hearts. You are The one and only Living God, all-powerful, all-knowing and Omani-present. You alone proved Your love for each and every human being. We will be worshiping Your forever and ever amen. May Your Name be lifted up and glorified, and You will draw all people to Yourself. In Jesus Name we pray, amen, amen and amen.

LIFT UP THE NAME OF JESUS!


file5401267274601LIFT UP THE NAME OF JESUS!
Margaret (Peggy) Kannaday
John 12:32, “And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto Me.”
Have you noticed that there is an attempt to squelch the Name of Jesus Christ! The elite powers (the wicked in high places, Eph. 6) are trying to make it a crime to pray in the Name of Jesus Christ.
This attempt alone should make people stop and think. Why? The countless names of so-called deities are allowed and even encouraged to be spoken except for this one Name which is the Name above all names.
I heard that the Name of Jesus Christ is not allowed to be mentioned in certain government locations. The Name of Jesus Christ makes satanic powers and demonic minions shudder. His Name breaks the powers of our enemy Lucifer and his countless servants.
There is a great attempt to erase the Name of Jesus Christ from off the earth and to crush the Word of God. This attempt has been going on over many centuries, and it is now coming to a crescendo in America.
This fact alone should give the occult practitioners and those in the dark pagan religions a clue as to Who is the real and only living God. However, I have discovered that the wicked in high places have gone to extreme lengths to program, brainwash and deceive the masses.
Most people are not free thinkers, but they follow the crowd. The Bible tells us that the majority of human beings will take the broad, easy and well-traveled road which leads to eternal death, darkness and hell.
Of course the masses are being taught that there is no such thing as hell or right or wrong. That way the masses can be railroaded by the anti-Christ forces into submission. The anti-Christ powers are rampant today. They know that their time is very short to deceive many more.
They must deceive their followers completely in order to get them to obey their orders and to cooperate with their diabolical schemes. Every plan of Satan, Lucifer, The Beast system, The False Prophets, the anti-Christ System will come to nothing, and so these rulers of the darkness must keep their minions in the dark at all times, and keep them in a state which psychologists call “Delusions of Grandeur”.
These servants of the NWO are mercenaries, and they are being rewarded for doing their evil deeds of darkness. They are being told that they will be promoted and that they will live forever without the possibility of suffering for their crimes and satanic works.
I notice that if anyone lifts up the Name of Jesus Christ; they are demeaned as crazy, a religious fanatic or stupid. Why do you think this is happening more and more as the anti-Christ system is being forced on all the nations of the world?
It is because if the Name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ is lifted up; He will draw all men, women and children to Himself. Wherever His Name is exalted; He is there to receive the people, heal them, deliver them and to save their souls from eternal damnation. That is why these principalities, powers, wicked in high places, rulers of the darkness desire to stop the Name of Jesus Christ from even being spoken out loud.
If the people of God would stand strong and not give in to these ungodly rogues; many thousands could be saved daily. However, due to their compromise involved with the non-profit status and other pressures from the rogue system; there are few ministers who are not effected by the disdain for the Name of our Lord Jesus. They are being trained very insidiously to say other words instead of Jesus Christ.
The love of money in many instances is greater than their love for The Lord Jesus Christ and obedience to His Word. It is obvious that many ministers have sold out to demonic and satanic powers, and many think that it is okay because so many others are doing the same thing.
However, God almighty and His Son Jesus Christ to not accept any excuses for such sins of omission and commission. The love of money is the root of all evil, and all Christians need to flee from this temptation.
When a minister signs over his or her ability to minister freely, and comes under contract with the secular authorities, and they allow those powers to dictate what they can say and what they cannot say; they have signed a death warrant. Their ministry will die without the liberty of being allowed to fully obey The Lord and to be led by The Holy Spirit.
Christian leaders should know better because this tactic was used in all of the Communist countries to possess control over all of the churches and ministries. It is not a secret that this submission to a secular and anti-Christ system will bring many problems in the future for a man or woman of God.
How many Christians have sold their souls out through this means, and now they are falling further and further into sin due to this opening of satanic forces into their churches. These ministers need to repent of their weakness in this area, and they need to renounce their contract with the devil.
All power in heaven and earth belongs to Jesus!
Matthew 28:18-20:
18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto Me in heaven and in earth.
19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you away, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
We, His beloved followers, disciples and ministers must stop surrendering our freedoms to our enemy and the anti-Christ followers. We must start obeying the Scriptures at any cost to our lives.
Our reasonable sacrifice is our life given over to Jesus Christ, and now the anti-Christ system is attempting to take the mention of His Name away from His people.
We need to rise up, and lift up The all-powerful Name of Jesus Christ all over America and the world. We need to praise His Name together, exalt all that He has done in freely giving His life for our salvation, blessings, healing s and deliverance.
Let’s lift up The Name of Jesus Christ, and He will draw all people to Himself! Glory to God!

Children of Light

Peggy Kannaday
Eph. 5:14, “Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light.”
The most efficient indicator of a person’s moral caliber is to see what he or she does in the darkness or when their deeds are hidden. However, everything is laid bare before our God, and all of the truth eventually will be revealed to all.
We think of Annanias and Sapphira when they thought that the Disciples and others would not know how they are lying to them. However, the Holy Spirit revealed it all, and Annanias and later Sapphira were struck dead.
We were once in darkness, but now we are the “Children of Light”. We are to continually walk in the light. Where there is light; there can be no darkness.
8For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light: 9(For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;) 10Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord. 11And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. 12For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret. 13But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light.
If you have the fear of God; then you will have wisdom, and with wisdom you can understand the will of The Lord. You can be led by The Lord and The Holy Spirit. You will be filled with The Light and Life of The Lord, and it will produce love, joy and peace in your life.
Those that are walking in the light; have a wonderful gift. They do not need to be afraid that their sins will be revealed. They have a grateful heart, and they only fear God. Fearing God is the beginning of a healthy moral and emotional life.
15See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, 16Redeeming the time, because the days are evil. 17Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is. 18And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit; 19Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord; 20Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ; 21Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God.
Now is the time to make your decision. Will I be swayed by the majority of those who do not know God or who do not walk in the Light?
These are the days when we must choose whom we will serve. We as children of God are commanded to walk in the beautiful light of the Lord and His Word. God’s Word will be lamp to our feet, and it will be a light to show us how to live, to think and to guide us each and every day.
Ps. 119:03, “Your word is a lamp to my feet, and a light to my path.”
Walking in the Light of The Lord Jesus Christ is the most wonderful of all paths to take in this life.
He will never leave you, forsake you, or lead you astray. Walk in His Light, and you will have the Light of His Life, and He will always cause you to triumph!
