Wake Up Church, Rise Up, Conquer all, and Make Yourself Ready!


Wake Up Church, Rise Up, Conquer all, and Make Yourself Ready!
Peggy Kannaday
THE CHURCH:
Matthew 16:
13, Jesus asks His disciples “Whom do men say that I the Son of man am?”
“He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am? And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God. And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but My Father which is in heaven. And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build My church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.” (verses 15-18)
The Greek word for Peter is petros which means a small pebble.  However, the Greek word used for rock by Jesus was Petra which means a massive rock.
Jesus Christ is the Chief Cornerstone and The Head of the true church, and Peter is one of the lively stones that form the Body of Christ (1 Cor. 3:11) (1 Peter 1:4-6) (Eph. 1:19-22) (1 Cor. 10:4).
THE HEAD AND CHIEF CORNERSTONE:
JESUS CHRIST
Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever.  He is the stable power in the church that should rule and reign over the Body of The Church, and He is also the firm foundation of the Church.
Jesus Christ wants His people to become all that they can be through Him.  He wants us to be strong in the inner man, and by faith to be rooted and grounded in His love.  Why?  So that we will be filled with all of the fulness of God.
He is able to do exceedingly above all that we can ask or think according to the power that worketh in us through Christ.  Christ in use; the hope of glory.  All glory goes to Jesus Christ throughout all ages for His wonderful goodness and mercy toward all mankind (Eph. 3:10).

THE BODY: 
LIVELY STONES
1PE 2:5  Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ.
Jesus Christ, the Head and Foundation Rock of the Church has provided everything for the believer that is needed for the abundant and overcoming life on this earth.
However, the world system which is headed up by Satanic powers is a controlling entity that wants to manipulate, deceive, suppress, destroy and render powerless all of God’s people and all people because they were created by almighty God.
In the Church, The Lord Jesus Christ must be our authority, and we are called lively stones, because we as Christians are not limited to a church building.  We are to be at liberty to move as the Holy Spirit leads us on a daily basis.
Where the Spirit of The Lord; there is complete liberty.  The Lord does not try and control any person because He want us to voluntarily choose Him and His will every day. 
He wants His people to have the freedom to be led by Him at all times, but there is a strong “control” spirit in some of the churches that wants to hinder the free flowing activities of the lively stones that comprise the Church of The Body of Christ.
Our very lives are to be offered onto the Lord; which is our reasonable sacrifice.  Everything in the Kingdom of God is based on our free will obedience unto the Lord and His commandments.
Jesus Christ wants us to obey Him out of our love for Him, and so we are never forced to obey Him, but all of His commandments are for our own good, and we would be very wise to obey our Lord, Savior and coming King Jesus Christ.
THE BODY OF CHRIST TO BE LED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT
RO 8:14  For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.
The true sons and daughters of God are the mature Christians that are led by the Holy Spirit of God.  That means that every decision we make should be birthed in and through much prayer and seeking the Father’s perfect will even as Jesus Christ did Himself.
Many Christians’ lives, marriages and futures have been wrecked, simply because they made the wrong decisions, and they did not seek The Father’s will first in their lives.  Always, remember that Father knows best.  Jesus Christ knew this fact, and He always did what His Father revealed to Him.  Hallelujah!
WAKE UP:
Many churches have been asleep for a long time, but praise The Lord; the Church, at least the remnant of the Church is waking up.  When we wake up, then The Lord Jesus Christ will give us His Light. 
When we wake up; then the Lord will be able to redeem the time, the territory and everything that we have lost or have had destroyed by the enemy of our souls.
We are admonished to continually be filled with The Holy Spirit, and we are to rejoice and give thanks unto the Lord for all things.  We are to submit ourselves unto each other in the fear of almighty God.
Eph. 5:14-21,
14   Wherefore He saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light.
15   See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise,
16   Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.
17   Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is.
18   And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit;
19   Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord;
20   Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;
21   Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God.

RISE UP:
After we, The Body of Christ wake up; we are admonished to rise up from the dead, and then The Light of Jesus Christ will be manifest to us, in us and through us, His people.
We need to let our light shine outward to a lost and dying world.  Pray that the Light, love and Truth of Jesus Christ will be spread throughout our nation, its people and the world.
Ephesians 5:13-14 (King James Version)
 13But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light
 14Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light.

CONQUER ALL:
We as The Lord’s sons and daughters have been given all power of the enemy.  We more than conquerors through Jesus Christ.  We can do all things through Jesus Christ, and nothing can separate us from Jesus’ love, His Presence and His care for those that love Him and for those who are called according to His glorious purposes.
Romans ;8:37 KJV
37   Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.
38   For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
39   Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
What are we commanded to do with the supreme authority that we have been given by our Lord Jesus Christ? 
We are to take back the lives, the property, the territories, and the atmosphere where the Lord has placed us.  We are not to just sit on our hands and do nothing with the all powerful authority that has been entrusted to the true Christian.
We are to “occupy” until the Lord returns.  He wants us to take the territory; not by physical power but by the Spirit of The Lord. 
Occupy means to take over the pagan elements and destroy them in the spiritual realm, as Josiah did in the physical realm when he was king.  The Christians have the power to bring down all Jezebel, Ahab, witchcraft, sorcery, magic, wizard and all other evil spirits.  We have been given “all” power over the enemy and his demons and those humans that are being demonized.
Luke 19:13
                        
13   And He called His ten servants, and delivered them ten pounds, and said unto them, Occupy till I come.

MAKE HERSELF READY:
RE 19:7   Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honor to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready.
JESUS’ PRAYERS:

1.  THE LORD’S PRAYER

When Jesus’ disciples asked Him how to pray; He prayed to His Father, “Thy Kingdom come; Thy will be done in earth as it is in heaven”.  We should pray in like manner every day.

2.  THE LORD’S HIGH PRIESTLY PRAYER

Jesus prayed for The Church His ultimate desire for His beloved people.  He
prayed that we will all be “One” as He is One with God, The Father.  The Lord’s prayers will be a reality, and they will come to pass in God’s perfect timing.  Hallelujah!

JOH 17:11   And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are.
JOH 17:22  And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:
We need to go to the Lord Jesus Christ to buy from Him, gold refined by the fire, white raiment of purity and eye salve so that we can see the Truth.  We need to ask for wisdom, knowledge and the fear of God must be strong in each one of us.

THE GRAND FINALE:

We are in the last days, and we are in the Valley of Decision.  We need to decide today which team are we going to support. 
The Lord is going to seal all of His servants that have been completely sold out to Him, and they will not suffer the wrath of God when it comes.  However, we are warned not to wait too long to deny ourselves, our own lives, and to take up our crosses and follow Jesus Christ.  Today, is the day of salvation and deliverance.
Choose this day Whom you will serve.  The Church must wake up, rise up, conquer all and make Herself ready for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Rev. 19
11   And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.
12   His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.
13   And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.
14   And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.
15   And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.
16   And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.
17   And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God;
18   That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great.
19   And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army.
20   And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshiped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.
21   And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh.

Fear Not


Fear Not: The Only Thing to Fear is Fear Itself
Peggy Kannaday
2 Peter 2
1 “But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.”

Jesus, Paul and Peter were always warning against the false ministers. Peter told us that the counterfeits will bring in damnable heresies very secretly. The Lord Jesus, Paul and Peter told the truth without hesitation. In short, they were not politically correct. They spoke the truth in love, but they were not man pleasers, because if you are a man please; you cannot be a true servant of The Lord.
Paul was always being “gang stalked’ by the most “religious” leaders. They were always trying to kill Paul. Just like today, if you do not follow these pernicious deceivers, their doctrines and their agendas, then they will try to destroy you, your reputation and your work.
Jesus was the most aggressive when it came to exposing the evil deeds of darkness. He called these hypocrites a brood of vipers, whitewashed sepulchers, wolves in sheep’s clothing, and He said that these money grubbing impostors had made His Father’s House into a den of thieves.
Jesus who is love personified was not politically correct. Why? Because he loved and cared about the people. He was willing to suffer great persecution in order to tell the people He loved the truth.
Today, where are the true shepherds who care about that one person? They are being formed through much tribulation, trials and persecution to come forth in the last days as shining lights to show The Way.
Jesus prayed His high priestly prayer that we would all be one, even as He and the Father are One. For that reason; He is preparing the ministers who will speak the truth in love. Perfect love casts out all fear.
In the coming times; we must not fear what man will think and we must not care what man will do to us for speaking the truth. If we have fear of man or fear of suffering or a fear of unpleasant circumstances; we will not be able to overcome this world.
The only legitimate fear we desperately need is the fear of almighty God. The Lord sends His angels to camp round about those who fear Him. The Lord has great benefits for those who fear and trust in Him with all of their hearts.
Fear is used by bullies to deceive, to intimidate, to manipulate and to control. Satan is the biggest bully of all time. When we see him for what he really is, which is a very limited being who has made an unspeakable error in thinking that he as a created angel could come against the God who created him.
Everything Satan does is filtered through the Lord Jesus Christ, and only what will work for good for God’s people (those that love God and are called according to His purpose Ro. 8:28) is allowed.
Satan only has the very limited power that you give him through your own fears and deception. That is why the only thing to fear in this life is the fear of Satan, the fear of man, the fear of what people think (which is the man-pleasing spirit) and the fear of circumstances.
When you have a healthy fear of God; you know that He is all-powerful, all-knowing, present at all times and places, and He is a God of love. However, you may safely trust in God because He is also a God of total justice and judgment. Hallelujah!
He is not a God who winks at sin. He is a God of love, kindness, and goodness, but praise His Name; He is also a God of severity, and when we read the Book of Revelation; we see that He is a God of punishment for those who rebel against the Holy Word of God.
God has given us His Word to teach us, protect us, and to keep us from the hands of our enemies. When we ignore Him, His Word, and we rebel against Him; He is not mocked, whatsoever you sow; that also will you reap.
Because we, God’s people decide to ignore His will, His Word and His wisdom; it is bringing a horrible curse upon our own heads. Every person who dabbles in the occult, the New Age dogma, The heresies that are abounding in our churches, and any other beliefs or practices that oppose The Truth of God and His Word; they are bringing themselves into swift destruction.
Our Lord Jesus warned us about those coming who would even deceive the very elect if it were possible. Satan uses deception to cause people to fear him because Christians have no need to fear Satan, because our God has already totally defeated him on the cross, by His blood and by the Word of our testimonies. Satan is finished in reality.
However, Satan uses deception to cause unsuspecting people to fear him. He is a huge thug/hooligan, and he goes around like a roaring lion because he has no teeth. He can only hurt you, if you let him.
The Jezebel spirit is a big bully spirit. The Jezebel spirit is the spirit that has come against my life, my work and my loved ones since I have been living in Regent Park, Fort Mill, SC.
In my case, a woman who claimed to be a prophetess tried to run me off of the road when I first drove to Pineville, NC. She failed in her attempt, and so she has since been able to use many others to do her dirty work which has been going on since 2005.
She is a classic case of what the Jezebel spirit is all about. May God have mercy on her soul. She is a woman who has so much insecurity and so many fears internally that she is violently afraid of anyone that she sees as a threat or competition.
She pretends to be super spiritual, and in her own mind; she thinks of herself as a goddess, and she demands to be worshiped.
The Jezebel spirit will use seducing spirits to demoralize her targets. She first finds a man of power who is very gullible to use for her own self-serving purposes. Sadly, there are many men in the “church” who are being used in such a manner.
After she finds her Ahab, she seduces him, and conquers him; she then begins her attempt to form her evil empire using the power she has gained.
Jezebel tries to beguile every person that she thinks she can deceive, but those that she knows she cannot deceive; she will attack with cruel and violent force, but she will use her dupes to do the actual work.
The Jezebel spirit uses her puppets, to do her bidding. The Jezebel spirit uses witchcraft, conjuring, incantations and all types of rituals to try and destroy her perceived enemy.
The Jezebel spirit will not stop her evil work of trying to kill anyone that she cannot control and manipulate even when she is obviously defeated.
Any normal and logical person would have realized that Elijah’s God was the ultimate God of all time on Mount Carmel, but not Jezebel. She ramped up her attack on Elijah even after her false prophets were all defeated to the core.
Those with this spirit are very impulsive, impatient, and they continually make wrong choices. If you give her enough rope; she will hang herself.
She is covetous of what other people have, and she will steal whatever she wants. She had Naboth the Jezreelite stoned to death in order to steal his property. She conjured up the demons who were sent out to the so-called elders and nobles who did the actual killing for her (1 Kings 21:7-14 and 1 Kings 21:12-16)
She had an innocent man killed in order to gain power and favor from her evil husband Ahab. She has no love for anyone, but she uses her captives for her very twisted purposes.
When I moved to Regent Park; I was summarily attacked by the Jezebel spirit. It came against me and even my family and friends in a horrific way. This spirit hates its victim so much that it also tries to destroy anyone that is connected with the targeted person, and especially any person that wants to help the targeted person.
You can actually overcome this evil and maniacal spirit through prayer, spiritual warfare and praise. You overcome by the Blood of The Lamb, the Word of God, and you do not love your life unto death.
Satan uses anger, fear and stress to enable his evil spirits to attack the Christian.
However, The Christian has all power over Satan, and his evil spirits, and when you know your authority in Christ, then nothing will by any means harm or hurt you.
Praise The Name of The Lord Jesus Christ!
When we obey The Lord Jesus and rejoice evermore, pray without ceasing, and in everything give thanks; we do not allow anger, fear and stress to come into our thoughts. When we exercise our love, faith, hope, and forgiveness as we are directed by our precious Lord Jesus Christ; we will always become more than conquerors through Him. Hallelujah!
I started researching spiritual warfare, and I learned how to apply the all-powerful blood of Jesus Christ over the witchcraft prayers and sorcery. I learned how to bind and loose, and I learned how to speak out the Word of God and how to put on the whole armor of God.
One of the sad elements of the Jezebel empire is that she uses many, many people who have no idea about what they are doing; to do her work for her. Just like she used the elders and nobles to stone the innocent Naboth the Jezreelite and to steal his vineyard.
She uses people, abuses them, and then she refuses them when they get into trouble due to her orders. However, with all of her bewitching, her deception and all of her tricks; she ended up as prophesied being eaten by dogs.
Since 2005, I have had a real education in the spirit of Jezebel, and the church as a whole needs to wake up to her devices. She infiltrates, divides and conquers unsuspecting and uninformed Christians. The people perish for lack of knowledge.
We, the church are being infiltrated by new and even more virulent heresies than ever in the history of the church. The Kingdom Now, and other Dominionism groups are targeting the young people.
Why? Because the young have not had time to learn about the pernicious ways of many of the false prophets and teachers. These apostate groups only want young people because of their vulnerability, their energy, and their need to be in peer groups, etc. They use the young, innocent young people to build up their own kingdoms.
The Lord however, wants His people to be the family of God. Why, do you think that we are to be a family? I believe because we need all ages for teaching, protection, and for the wisdom that the righteous elderly can provide.
Young people trust these very charismatic reprobates, simply because they have never been taught the pure and holy Word of God. They are so brain washed, and they are so under the influence of mind controlling witchcraft that many times they are not able to read the Bible and learn from its powerful message for themselves.
Young people have not lived long enough to become oblivious to all of the propaganda of the church élite. They are still impressed by those who have many followers.
They haven’t learned that some of those that have so many followers have already sold their souls out for money, power, prestige and lusts of every kind. Satan rewards those who follow him for a season so that he can deceive many more.
There are so many false doctrines, doctrines of demons and deceptions going around today in the churches, but the Lord told us that we would know the true Christians by their fruit. The true Christians and shepherds will not be self-serving, but they will be those who will leave the 99 to minister to one of the least of these.
The true shepherds will be raised up by our Lord in the coming years. Hallelujah.
The Dominion ism Doctrine is in the form of a pyramid. The top leaders are the ones who control the others. They are the ones who use the Name of Jesus Christ to promote their own agendas.
The Lord’s plan is not a pyramid; it is a level surface. Why? Because our God is not a respecter of persons. Our God, Who is the quintessential and all-time God of the universe demonstrated His plan by coming to this earth as a lowly servant, and then He voluntarily suffered cruelty and death on the cross. He proved His love for us, and for the salvation of even one person who would receive Him as their Savior and Lord.
Hebrews 2:3, “How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard [Him];”
In these days, the enemies of our country, our people and the world as we know it are trying to destroy everyone and everything that is decent, pure and holy, and because of that the true Christians have been targeted.
As the evil in the world gets worse and worse; the good will become renewed, revived and restored. Acts 3:19, “Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord;”
Daily repentance by asking the Holy Spirit to reveal our sins of omission and commission is the key to the healing and restitution of our lands and our people.
All of us have veered from the straight and narrow way that Jesus walked, and we all need to deny ourselves, take up our crosses and follow Jesus wherever He goes.
We need to become the mature sons and daughter of God by being led by The Holy Spirit each day, and we need to give ourselves unto Him as a living sacrifice.
He did everything for us; He suffered, He died a horrible death, and He is interceding for us now day and night. We cannot ignore the great God of the universe any longer, we all need to humble ourselves, pray, seek His face and turn from our wicked ways.
Wake up Christians, many of you have been lied to, deceived, used and abused by those who were supposed to be your servants. Stop supporting the churches that are little more than businesses and dens of thieves. Without you; they would all come to nothing.
Make your local fellowships; Houses of Prayer, and turn this world around. Start looking to Jesus for your Gospel messages, and stop listening to the lies of satan.
America was founded in 1607 at Cape Henry, and a cross was erected, and the first settlers prayed that America would be dedicated to Jesus Christ and the Gospel.
Christians, take your stand, and take back this territory and this country for God’s Kingdom, honor and glory. Amen and amen.
