Be Strong and Courageous


The church will be one, as the Lord and the Father are one.

The church will be one, as the Lord and the Father are one.

Joshua was commanded by The Lord to be strong and courageous. It was not a suggestion, but it was an order.
The Lord knew that Joshua would have to stand on His Word in order to attain the victory.
Joshua 1:5, “There shall not any man be able to stand before thee all the days of thy life: as I was with Moses, so I will be with thee: I will not fail thee, nor forsake thee. 6 Be strong and of a good courage: for unto this people shalt thou divide for an inheritance the land, which I swear unto their fathers to give them. 7 Only be thou strong and very courageous, that thou mayest observe to do according to all the law, which Moses my servant commanded thee: turn not from it to the right hand or to the left, that thou mayest prosper whither soever thou goest. 8 This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success. 9Have 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.”
Joshua knew that the Lord would fight the battle for him.

Jericho’s wall fell down totally through the power of almighty God. It came down through the power of total obedience to and trust in God.
The Promised Land could not have been taken without these two crucial elements being in place.
The Promised Land had been taken over by the nephilim. Nephilim are hybrids bred from a human woman and a fallen angel.
Goliath, the giant was a classic example of an ancient nephilim. However, the modern versions are much more disguised and more humanoid.
Because of the evil deeds of the nephilim hybrids; God’s creation had to be destroyed with the great flood in Noah’s time.
The only people that had not been defiled by interbreeding and various, hideous mutations were Noah and his family.
The nephilim hybrids were cannibals, and they engaged in all types of occult sacrifices and the killing of innocent blood.
The Lord told Joshua to kill “all of the nephilim who were the inhabitants of The Promised Land.
Why? Because God loved His people, and He knew that the nephilim would defile them and end up destroying them if they were allowed to live.
However, some escaped and intermingled with God’s people. This attempt to change the human DNA and to demoralize all human people is still in progress to this day.
The nephilim were and are the terrorists we see throughout our societies. They are now called psychopaths, sociopaths and schizophrenic psychotics. They are our modern day criminals, coven members, cult members, secret society members and many of them are considered “The Elite”.
They are controlled by demon spirits, and they take their marching orders from Satan.
However, their size has been scientifically altered to become more like the average human being on the surface. However, internally they are cold-blooded.
Satan’s main weapon is deception and trickery. His “people” come as normal looking people; the same way that he sends and disguises his evil angels as angels of light.
However, they have the nature of their father, who only comes to kill, steal, deceive and destroy.
Today, God’s people need to have the same strength and courage that Joshua needed. Before the Lord returns; it will be like the days of Noah when the nephilims were defiling and destroying mankind.
In the coming time; we will see many “people” who are being controlled by satanic powers. They will be committing every type of atrocity and heinous crimes.
We, Christians do not need to be afraid. Jesus was continually warning His disciples, “Do not be afraid”.
God uses weak people to do His great exploits. When we are weak; then we are strong in The Lord Jeaus.
2 Cor. 12
9 And He said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for My strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. 10 Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ’s sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.

The Bible tells us that perilous times are coming in the last days. The Word of God tells us that men will faint because of fear.
Just like Joshua conquered the Promised Land. We, God’s people can conquer our Promised Lands.
Our Promised Land is comprised of all of God’s glorious promises in His Word, The divine handbook for all saints.
We are more than conquerors through Jesus Christ.
He has already conquered Satan; the world and everything in it. To the extent that we trust in Him; we will overcome satanic beings, the world and our flesh to the glory of God.
The name Joshua means Yeshua or Jesus. We, like Joshua are commanded to be strong and courageous. We are not only required to stand and hold our position, but we are ordered to “take back” the territory that we have abdicated to enemy forces.
God is calling more and more Joshua’s to occupy until He comes back.
Let’s put on our full armor and fight the good fight of faith through praise, prayer and spiritual warfare in the Name of Jesus Christ, the blood of The Lamb, The Word of our testimony,and we do not love our lives unto the death.
Jesus Christ came and died for our salvation, to set the captives free, and to destroy “all” the works of Satan. He wants to use us to accomplish this end, just as He did Joshua.
Let’s be strong and courageous in behalf of our wonderful Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. As we conquer our areas of influence, more people will be won for the Lord and His Kingdom. Hallelujah!
Dear Father,
Help all of us to have supernatural strength and courage through our faith in You and Your great power.
When the enemy comes in like a flood The Spirit of The Lord will raise up a mighty standard against him and his dupes.
Father, You always cause Your beloved saints to triumph.
Thank you, and may all glory go to God in Jesus Christ’s precious Name! Amen and amen.

God is Able


God is Able
Peggy Kannaday
We know that from The Garden of Eden; Satan has had an evil plan for every one of God’s people. Of course, he has a horrible plan for the world and all the people of the world, but Satan targets the true Christians first and foremost. He attempts to destroy everything that The Lord has given them.
One thing that I have noticed about the plans of Satan are that they are always presumptive. They never seem to take into account the Living God and His almighty power.
The enemy did not consider the cost, when he had the ‘religious” leaders of Jesus’ time on earth to have Him murdered. The Bible says that if Satan had known the real Truth about Jesus Christ; they would never have had him killed. Satan didn’t know that Jesus Christ was and is The Lord of glory for all eternity.
The enemy was actually fulfilling the predestined plan of the Living God. Jesus Christ was sent to the earth to be offered the perfect sacrifice for the sins of mankind, and He totally succeeded in all that was needed for the total victory for all those who turn to God, trust in Him, love Him, obey Him and are called according to His glorious purposes.
For those that are born-again; the enemy hates with a passion; even as he hated The Lord Himself. If you follow Jesus Christ with all of your heart; you will be hated by those that have the anti-Christ spirit, even as Daniel, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego and all the other true servants of the living God were despised and persecuted.
Let’s look at some biblical history in The Book of Daniel. The Lord was with the children of Israel even when they were surrounded by citizens of The Province of Babylon. God gave His people great favor and fruitfulness even in the land of their captivity.
This of course caused envy and a spirit of competition, just like we have today, and so wicked people started to plot against God’s people.
The three righteous young men, named Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego totally refused to bow down to the image of Nebuchadnezzar the King.
These three young men said to The King in Daniel 3:17-18, “If it be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and He will deliver us out of thine hand, O King.
But if not, be it known unto thee, O king, that we will not serve thy gods, nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up.”

As you recall, the King was furious,and he heated the furnace seven times hotter.
The children of God were bound, and thrown into the furnace. The men were slain that threw the three young men into the furnace, but not a hair of the head of God’s children was burned. Why? Because they had the Son of God with them in the furnace. Jesus Christ promises that He will never leave us, His people, or forsake us, even in the fiery furnace
God not only delivered these men, but He brought justice and judgment on those who had said anything against these men of God.
The King ordered that anyone that spoke against the God of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego would be cut into pieces. God brought total justice for His faithful sons.
These men of God were promoted in the province of Babylon, and The King said, “Blessed be the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego.”
Later, the very envious and wicked people of Babylon devised a scheme to destroy Daniel because they were so jealous, and they had the anti-Christ spirit. They hated Daniel for no reason other than the fact that he loved the living God and worshiped Him daily.
They got their King Darius, to create a law that they knew Daniel could not submit to, and so as you know King Darius had to uphold the law, and with great reluctance; he had Daniel thrown into the lion’s den.
The King told Daniel that his God would deliver him, and The King said (Daniel 6:20), “O Daniel, servant of the living God, is thy God, whom thou serves continually, able to deliver thee from the lions?”
That question is reverberating all over the world today as the Christians look to our living God in these times of crisis.
The resounding answer is Yes, Yes and a thousand times “Yes”, our God is more than able to deliver us out of any plot, plan and scheme of the enemy.
When King Darius came the next morning to check on Daniel; Daniel was perfectly fine, and the lion’s mouths had been shut by The living God in behalf of Daniel.
The King then commanded that all of the men that had accused Daniel, including their wives and children be thrown into the lion’s den. “And the king commanded, and they brought those men which had accused Daniel, and they cast them into the den of lions, them, and their children, and their wives; and the lions had the mastery of them, and brake all their bones in pieces or ever they came at the bottom of the den” (Daniel 6:24). God not only can deliver perfectly, but He also brings the needed vengeance and restitution for His people. Those that put their total trust in God, love Him and obey Him will have every attempt of evil done to them reversed by almighty God. These mighty men of valor named Daniel, Sharach, Meshach and Abednego were not only delivered, but they were justified and those who attacked them were destroyed, and the mighty men of God were promoted and taken care of during their lifetimes. This will also be true of everyone that puts their lives and total trust in our Lord Jesus Christ.
Daniel prospered in the reign of Darius and in the reign of Cyrus The Persian.
We know how The Lord delivered Job, Joseph and countless other men of God out of the hand of Satan, and how the living God worked it all together for their good (Romans 8:28).
Many of God’s true believers will also face the hand of Satan, but they must never have any fear or doubt as The Lord our God will deliver them in one way or another.
We Christians are so blessed, and for us to live is Christ and to die is “gain”. We will not suffer the sting of death. We have everything to look forward to in our future. We should never have any fear of death or evil. The only fear that we should have is the fear of God which brings many blessings and benefits.
“And they overcame him (Satan) by The Blood of The Lamb, and by The Word of their Testimony, and they loved not their lives unto the death” (Revelation 12:11).
Those who have already given their lives over to the living God, The Father and Jesus Christ will not fear death. They have already surrendered all to Jesus Christ. They have nothing to lose, but everything to gain; no mater what happens in this life; God will take care of you as a loving Father.
Our real future is not in this life, but in the life to come. “For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known” (1 Cor. 13:12).
Now, we need to store up our treasures in heaven; not on this earth. What we store up in heaven will always be beneficial for us; not only in this life but also in the life to come.
(1 Timothy 4:8-10) (KJV) 8 “For bodily exercise profiteth little: but godliness is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come. 9 This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptation.
10 For therefore we both labor and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God, who is the Savior of all men, specially of those that believe”.

Our God is able to deliver us, heal us, and bless us beyond anything that we can ask, think or imagine. He is all-powerful, all-knowing and omnipresent.
With Him nothing is impossible, but all things are possible with Him; He alone has won the total victory in our lives over all of our afflictions, sin and death. He delivers us out of them all, and He always causes His people to triumph.
Always remember that our God is not only able, but He is an awesome God, and Creator of the universe. He is the coming King of kings and Lord of lords.
I pray that you will have His heart and His mind, and you will go from victory-to-victory and from glory-to-glory in Jesus’ Name and all for His honor and praise!. Amen, amen and amen.

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.
