Your Part In Dreams, Visions And Prophecy

 

After the devastation that Joel witnessed and his call for
God’s people to turn to God, he talks of a day when the Holy Spirit of God
would be given to all of Israel, Judah and outward to all the world.

 

With the uncertain future that your children face, God wants
to speak to each of them. They will resonate with a message from God and see a
vision of what can be. And to us old guys, there is a dream to keep alive.

 

Perhaps you are not too Pentecostal and wonder what all the
hoopla is about dreams, vision, and prophecy. Why do they matter in 2024? They
matter because the Holy Spirit wants to interact with all flesh. God wants to
point us all to the hopeful Kingdom where we can thrive.

 

It would be hundreds of years after Joel that God’s Spirit
would descend in the Upper Room where 120 friends of Jesus were praying and
worshipping. With the sound of hurricane, visible flames overhead and
miraculous utterances in foreign languages, Simon Peter would enter into and
articulate what the ancient prophecy was talking about.

 


Acts 2:

14 Then
Peter stood up with the Eleven, raised his voice and addressed the crowd:
“Fellow Jews and all of you who live in Jerusalem, let me explain this to you;
listen carefully to what I say. 15 These people are not drunk,
as you suppose. It’s only nine in the morning! 16 No, this is
what was spoken by the prophet Joel:

17 “‘In
the last days, God says,
    I will pour out my Spirit on all people.
Your sons and daughters will prophesy,
    your young men will see visions,
    your old men will dream dreams.

18 Even
on my servants, both men and women,
    I will pour out my Spirit in those days,
    and they will prophesy.
19 I will show wonders in the heavens above
    and signs on the earth below,
    blood and fire and billows of smoke.
20 The sun will be turned to darkness
    and the moon to blood
    before the coming of the great and glorious day of the
Lord.

21 And
everyone who calls
    on the name of the Lord will be saved.’

 

 

We are supposed to be filled with God’s Spirit so we can
witness to the world that destruction is not the only outcome. God has a plan,
and they can be restored by calling upon Him.

 

God needs people that dream that dream. He needs younger
people that can see the future God intends and all of us to find the words that
clarify why we come to Jesus.

 

Some of these things seem other-worldly but they are
intended for this world. Where is this world heading and how will God restore
it? In this way, dreams, vision, and prophecy delivered in the love of God are
essential to our survival.

 

This is not so much spooky, weird, or mysterious. It is more
like words that bring life, hope and an intimate approach to the Saviour of the
world.

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN PROPHECY AND SPIRITUAL INTELLIGENCE

NOTE: This is a reprint of a post from the Kris Vallotton's website. Kris is a member on staff at Bethel Church in Redding, California. I share his posts here because I am always amazed at the insights the Lord gives him.

Have you ever come up against a problem that leaves you racking your brain for a solution? Maybe you’ve even found yourself lying awake at night counting all the possible ways to come to a resolution. In a world where we face problems on a regular basis, whether simple and subtle or loud and large, we are all familiar with the sense of dread when they come our way. However, what if instead of dread being the first emotion that we face, we were met with excitement as we anticipated the solution from Heaven that we would receive? 


I’d propose that when the challenges of life come your way, you have a divine advantage! Through the redemptive power of the cross, you have not only the strength of a redeemed mind, but, you also have access to the mind of Christ (1 Corinthians 2). When we simply live with a redeemed mind, we disregard and disempower the ability we have to grasp solutions from Heaven and bring them to earth. What I am getting at is for a long time the Church has been really good at teaching and training Believers to think like God (Romans 12). But, we have lacked in teaching and training Believers to think God’s thoughts, also known as spiritual intelligence. What does this look like? 


Imagine you are walking past your grumpy neighbor that is always rude to you. With a transformed mind, you feel compassion and love for this person as the Bible is clear, “Above all, love each other deeply.” (1 Peter 4:8). However, when you move beyond thinking how God thinks, you can begin to access what He is thinking. In this example, you can ask the Holy Spirit to show you why your neighbor is always rude. You may begin to understand and sympathize with his disposition as the Lord shares with you: “His father was a pastor that preached one thing and lived a completely different way at home. He was abused by his father, and when he sees you, he’s reminded of his father.” Now, you can ask the Lord for a strategy for how you can not just help your relationship with your neighbor, but also help your neighbor heal from his past hurts.


There are unique and powerful ways that the Lord speaks to each one of us, giving us access to His thoughts. I felt led to share this conversation I had with Ben Armstrong a year ago. Ben is the Director of Prophetic Ministry at Bethel Church who is powerfully transforming culture as he equips and trains Believers to understand the prophetic and the ways God uniquely communicates with us. Ben shares how our dreams are an incredible avenue in which the Lord can speak, share solutions, and strategies with us. This is also a way that we can experience and develop our spiritual intelligence.

Past And Present Work Plan


When we read the accounts of Christ’s birth and life, we
read them in the New Testament. But is the birth and life of Christ taking
place under the New Covenant? What do you think?

 

The words “testament”, “covenant”, and “will” are all the
same Greek word diathéké. This is important because it’s a death, not a birth,
that is required to activate a will or testament. Therefore, the New Testament
era (also known as the new covenant) actually begins at the death of Christ,
not at His birth. Hebrews 9:16-17 says: “In the case of a will, it is
necessary to prove the death of the one who made it, because a will is in
force only when somebody has died; it never takes effect while the one who made
it is living.”
[1]

 

It would be the shedding of Christ’s blood that would bring
about a new and superior agreement between God and humanity. We always need to
remember that the Jesus who came for the whole world is born first into a
Jewish world under an agreement between God and the people of Israel. If we
lose that part of the story, we miss out on why things happened as they did and
when they did.

 

In the 13th Century Thomas Aquinas pondered the
reasons for Christ being born in the time and place that he was. Why not at a
different time in Jewish history?

 

St. Thomas answered that because Christ came in order to
bring us back from a state of bondage to a state of liberty, it was fitting
that He be born into bondage with us and then lead us out. We can grasp this
logic in a wider sense when we consider that He assumed our mortal nature in
order to give us an immortal nature; He died in order to restore us to life
.
[2]

 

There is a marked difference in the work of the Holy Spirit
in the Old Testament and the New. What was the Spirit doing in the Old
Testament and how was that expanded upon once the New Covenant was enacted?

 

R.C. Sproul said,

 

In the Old Testament, you couldn’t be born again apart
from the work of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit did His work of regeneration
then as He does now. The Holy Spirit indwelt people in the old covenant just as
He does now. The Holy Spirit worked towards the sanctification of the saints in
the Old Testament, just as He does now… In the Old Testament, that anointing
was restricted to a handful of people. In the New Testament, it’s universal, to
the whole body
.
[3]

 

As we examine the Old Testament work of the Holy Spirit in
the events surrounding Christ’s conception, birth, and life, we are being
prepared for another intermingling of the Spirit and humanity in the Upper
Room. Joel’s prophecy is now fulfilled as God pours out His Spirit upon all
flesh and your own sons and daughters prophesy. Your old people have God given
dreams by the Spirit.

 

The increased work of the Spirit upon the life of Jesus was
setting the stage for the Comforter to come. Jesus’ work saves you and the
Spirit’s work will change you.

Do you trust your government to always or at least sometimes act in the best interests of the people?

In a 2023 study by Pew Research Center, public trust in government in the United States has reached an all-time low of 20%, a significant drop from the 80% it used to be in the 1960s.

These statistics are unsurprising, given the current governmental and political landscape we traverse on a daily basis. It’s not uncommon to witness news stories with headlines accusing leaders of moral failings, embezzlement, or dishonesty. Leaders and politicians often say one thing but do another, leaving us questioning the integrity of our systems.

Speaking With Clarity


God is always having a conversation with the Church. If God
is an attentive listener and speaks words that bring clarity, how can we join
into that conversation? What does it mean to hear from God and share that
message with others?

 

Let’s look deeper into the gift and practice of prophecy in
the church.

 

The first thing to understand about “prophecy” is that it
is not “fortune-telling” or “soothsaying” — it’s about declaring the heart, mind,
and intention of Almighty God in a specific situation.
[1]

 

 

1 Corinthians 14:

Follow The Way Of Love
And Eagerly Desire Gifts Of The Spirit, Especially Prophecy. For
Anyone Who Speaks In A Tongue Does Not Speak To People But To God.
Indeed, No One Understands Them; They Utter Mysteries By The Spirit. But
The One Who Prophesies Speaks To People For Their Strengthening, Encouraging
And Comfort. Anyone Who Speaks In A Tongue Edifies
Themselves, But The One Who Prophesies Edifies The Church. I
Would Like Every One Of You To Speak In Tongues, But I Would Rather Have You
Prophesy. The One Who Prophesies Is Greater Than The One Who Speaks In Tongues,
Unless Someone Interprets, So That The Church May Be Edified.

 

 

Paul tells the Corinthians that we should all desire to have
spiritual gifts at work in us. That is a good desire when it flows from the
love of God in you. Do you want God to help you be more effective influencing
others for Him?

 

But in all the ways that you can want to be more effective,
pay special attention to prophecy. All the gifts are good and useful, but there
is something about good communication with one another that takes precedent
over other things.

 

A message in an unknown language is for God, not for the
listeners in the church unless it is accompanied by an interpretation. When I
have heard an effective message in tongues with interpretation, it is usually
bringing attention to God’s nature and not the immature state of those who make
up the church.

 

A message that brings attention to God comes from someone
who is beholding God in their spirit. The tongues-talker is experiencing
something uplifting and are being built up. But they are not always
contributing to what God wants to do for the others gathered.

 

So, what is prophecy?

 

Old Testament prophets were inspired by Holy Spirit to bring
a message to God’s people. While it was sometimes encouraging, clarifying, and
strengthening, there were also messages of judgment and condemnation.

 

We see a shift in the New Testament use of prophecy that has
less to do with judging and more to do with strengthening. God inspires people
to bring a message that strengthens, encourages, and comforts.

 

So why doesn’t God use prophetic message more to tell us
about our failure and imminent destruction? God is clearly doing something new
in the gift of prophecy. We do have the words of Jesus and the New Testament
writers that give clear, prophetic messages of warning and consequence but Paul
is making the case for communication that flows out of love. Speaking the truth
in love reminds you that you are loved deeply and helps you discern what you
can do to align yourself with God.

 

Paul wants the whole church to desire the gift of prophecy.
If each of us can be used in this way, it is imperative that we are growing in
love. Prophetic words without love do nothing to build up the church.

 

We are going to dig further into this but let me bring
clarity about attitudes that can rise up in a church that cancel out God’s
message.

The Elites’ Next Depopulation Pandemic Ready for Launch

Written by Joachim Hagopian

Observing the genocidal stakes rising each and every week, as the mass psycho-killers in power deploy more of their enormous WMD arsenal at us all at once, the more their endless crimes against children and humanity get exposed.

This co-occurring high correlation is worth noting and examining further. As the elites increasingly find their backs up against the wall, understandably they grow more afraid of losing their earthly power and control.

Because their COVID “scamdemic” overreach forced them to temporarily pause and retreat a step or two back, astute observers always knew that these death cult practitioners would return with even bigger guns to inflict yet more of their manmade Weapons of Mass Destruction.

Just because COVID petered out on them, more deadlier pandemics are no doubt on the horizon, with more mandated bio-terror kill shots they will again falsely claim to be “safe and effective vaccines” and more crippling lockdowns intended to destroy even more lives.

With a piss poor 2020-21 track record issuing nonstop haphazard, inconsistent “pandemic” flip-flopping recommendations, mask or no mask, safe distancing of six feet or not, lockdown or no lockdown, by cunning design, all their prescribed interventions were inherently intended to be totally inadequate and ineffective in combatting this elusive, never isolated nor proven to even exist Covid-19 virus that always had a near 100 percent survival rate.

Throughout their debacle, the elites’ intent was to premeditatedly drive global panic in the masses to easily convince them to line up for warp speed vaccines with early assured carrot stick promises of health and life back returning back to normal as propagandized false incentives.

But really the plot all along was to premeditatedly murder off 90 to 95 percent of humanity. Since they grossly failed, despite millions of “died suddenly” fatalities worldwide continuing to pile up as time goes on, the tricked global masses are finally just now beginning to catch on, that we are all targeted in the crosshairs of their ungodly genocidal depopulation agenda.

There really is nothing new here other than the elites’ ambitious, unprecedented grand scale of mass murder. Ever since two and a quarter centuries ago, since Malthus’ long debunked overpopulation theory gone awry, Satanists want the vast majority of us currently living and breathing dead.

And just because COVID failed them, they are back again delivering their same age old murderous methodology through yet more bioweapon terrorism in efforts to kill us. After all, powerful aficionados of their depopulation eugenics have been around for a very long time.

After their so-called bat origin hoax for COVID petered out, failing miserably to fulfill their expectation of killing more of us, the Luciferians’ next trick up their demonic sleeve is to usher in their next gain-of-function weaponized pathogen, via their avian bird flu epidemic or the dreaded spread of their Marburg Virus Disease as their latest likely candidates to pick up where COVID left off.

Despite the so-called natural avian influenza H5N1 never posing a threat to mankind throughout all of human history, based on the planetary controllers’ recent historical facts, we have every reason and suspicion to believe their next “virus” will also be unnaturally manmade, with their already concocted vaccine waiting [to fly] in the [avian] wings, just like their COVID “Warp Speed” debacle.

According to Dr. Mercola, the avian bird flu vaccine will also be deliberately made to be ineffective like its COVID precursor, but far more likely it will be effectively deadlier than their last Coronavirus outing.

Once again, these Satanic desperadoes fast running out of time are attempting to play us for fools yet again, hopelessly dumbed down and adversely injured from round one, suffering from such acute memory loss as to once again fall for their latest media hyped panic again, amidst their never-ending 24/7 barrage of alarmist lies.

It’s also important to add that because the manmade gain of function element has likely tweaked the latest H5N1 pathogen afflicting mammals in the wild of Europe and North America, we may be dealing with a far more virulent and deadly highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAIv) virus at this point, so all the hype of its danger may in fact be real. That’s the paradox.

Dr. Joseph Mercola, medical crusading health giant or New York Times’ “most influential spreader of Coronavirus misinformation,” depending on whether you are a truth seeker or gullible lie swallower, apparently Dr. Mercola has had his website mercola.com once again taken down by the truth-killing vultures, so on April 3rd this year the doctor tweeted:

Be prepared for more delusive pandemics!…

Already, the U.S. and other countries are stockpiling H5N1 vaccine ‘just in case.’

While some traditional vaccines are in the lineup, mRNA shots tweaked to target H5N1 are also being planned, and they probably won’t need to undergo additional testing over and beyond what was done for the COVID jabs.

Because Dr. Mercola’s life work has persistently been targeted for unrelenting censorship because no fascist totalitarian regime can ever tolerate the truth, the good doctor announced that he has sought refuge for his enormous library’s permanent keeping at the respected substack.com.

Fortunately, Dr. Mercola’s articles do get faithfully scooped up right away by numerous other worthy websites, among them the reputable theburningplatform.com that just reposted his prophetic, highly relevant, still topical article originally released in May last year that can also be found on my old go-to news site, the venerable Michel Chossudovsky’s globalresearch.ca dated May 18th, 2022, entitled “Will a Weaponized Bird Flu Become the Next Pandemic?”

Dr. Joseph Mercola maintains that the crime cabal’s 2022 bird flu pathogen emerging as a prominent dangerous threat on today’s pandemic landscape, or more apt minefield, is yet another gain-of-function research product as the H5N1 avian bird influenza.

Dr. Mercola asserts that H5N1 could have easily come from one of dozens of US Defense Department funded bioweapon labs in Ukraine, though US bioweapon laboratories reportedly number in the hundreds worldwide.

Epidemiologists maintain that this latest avian virulent strain jumped from infecting wild birds to infecting wild mammals – foxes, skunks, bears, badgers, seals, minks, pigs and dolphins from Europe to North America within this last year and a half.

If this latest “scary” virus is mutating, or more likely being mutated, as the outed former Pfizer executive inadvertently boasted to Project Veritas, then their rollout claiming it has suddenly jumped to humans cannot be far off as their “next big plandemic.”

Though a CDC March 17th, 2023 H5N1 report strongly downplays any imminent threat to humans, having devastated both wild bird and poultry populations during this last year as the world’s worst outbreak ever, particularly in Europe and North America, and its increasing spillover to wild mammals, and the near certainty that this latest virulent strain originated in another gain-of-function bioweapon lab, it’s a feasible possibility that lends credence to former CDC director Dr. Robert Redfield’s recent warning.

As the latest highly probable manmade mutated pathogen arriving in the elites’ depopulation pipeline schedule, it will be sure to keep Klaus Schwab’s pledge ringing true:

Many of us are pondering when things will return to normal. The short response is: never.

His new normal bringing never-ending pandemics and recurring lockdowns are essential for his Great Reset. And the promise of the bird flu influenza assures his depop schedule continues. The prospect of more death by bioweapon bird flu pathogen is gaining traction with “new legs,” albeit fibrously blood-clotted like the last COVID round.

Rest assured that the cabal’s latest H5N1 non-vaccines are already waiting to roll off the bioweapon assembly line, as Dr. Mercola alluded to, also skipping the onetime required rigorous legal testing protocol per the last COVID round’s “Emergency Authorization Use.”

According to cabal pecking order, the FDA whores, once paid off, approve everything Big Pharma sends them. The killing elites’ desperation and hubris wouldn’t have it any other way. But public confidence in the global healthcare system after the COVID jab has been forever shattered.

The genocidal elites have now made it painfully clear that they intend to continue using manmade biosecurity threats as a main ticket to reduce the global population in order to establish their one world government tyranny and control.

For decades, Covid-19 architect and eugenics perpetrator Bill Gates has been warning, or more aptly promising, more lethally dangerous pandemics to come that “will get attention this time.”

On March 30th, 2023, former CDC director Dr. Robert Redfield, in an interview boldly predicted:

I believe the great pandemic is still in the future, and that’s going to be a bird flu pandemic for man.

It’s going to have significant mortality in the 10-50 percent range. It’s gonna be trouble.

Both the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and Dr. Anthony Fauci consistently funded H5N1 gain-of-function research.

Among their favorite recipients $11 million later from 2008 to 2012 was University of Wisconsin Madison and University of Japan’s Dr. Yoshihiro Kawaoka and independently Dr. Ron Fouchier in Rotterdam, Netherlands.

Separately, both of these researchers modified the deadly H5N1 virus to spread to the mammal species of ferrets, immediately drawing heat from the somewhat still sane scientific community fearing that it could eventually spillover to humans, prompting a temporary hold against further gain-of-function research.

Yet in 2013 under new US oversight rules, the mad scientists were granted greenlight again to resume their killer virus research. But after more papers were published and a series of “accidents” at federal biocontainment labs, in October 2014 a ban on gain-of-function research went into effect, but it ended in December 2017.

A number of paper trails from Washington and nearby Fort Detrick, Maryland lead to not only China’s Wuhan Institute of Virology, Dr. Ralph Beric’s gain-of-function laboratory at University of North Carolina Chapel Hill, University of Wisconsin as well as labs in the Netherlands and Ukraine, after the moratorium on gain-of-function research was established in 2014. Again, from Dr. Mercola’s H5N1 bird flu article:

The bird flu has been manipulated and tinkered with in a variety of different ways, making it both airborne (which it was not initially) and capable of cross-species infection.

More evidence that the current H5N1 outbreak spreading throughout North America and beyond, having devastated the US and European poultry and egg industry appears to also be manmade, according to University of Massachusetts Boston virologist Nichola Hill, telling ABC News less than two months ago:

The size, range and number of species affected by this outbreak is unprecedented … That’s not really how bird flu should behave.

The highly pathogenic avian influenza (the now notated HPAIv) as the latest virulent H5N1 viral strain has been in North America since its detection in wild birds of northeastern Canada in November 2021, but ever since according to a new US Geological Society (USGS) study, it has been rapidly spreading across the Americas.

This new strain of avian bird flu is apparently causing “zombie-like” conditions in infected animals’ behaviors, frequently possessing neurological issues that allegedly remove their fear of humans, and now it’s crossed over from wild birds to wild mammals, eerily sounding like it’s a plot straight out of a science fiction B-movie plot from the 1950s.

The first outbreak was observed in Europe in October 2021 allegedly belonging to a Eurasian lineage. It has allegedly afflicted and engulfed the poultry industry bigtime, both the backyard flocks as well as the industrialized large poultry warehouses.

As of early December 2022, now four months ago, 52.7 million poultry birds were culled in the US while in 2022 Canada hit the 7 million mark. In Europe the culled numbers are off the charts as of October last year 47.7 million birds were put down in the preceding 12 months.

So the totals in just North America and Europe alone are well over 100 million. Meanwhile in North America, H5N1 has jumped and currently spreading to the red fox from Eurasian river otters, lynxes, polecats and stone martens to countries throughout Europe and beyond.

Journalist Lance D. Johnson penned a Natural News article dated March 28th:

In May 2022, US and Canadian epidemiologists isolated the highly pathogenic avian influenza HfN1 in wild mammals. Were gain-of-function virology experiments involved in the sudden mammalian transmissibility of the bird flu?

According to immunohistochemical analysis, the HPAIv virus invades neuron cell bodies to replicate in infected animals’ brains, suffering from seizures, ataxia, blindness, vocalization, nystagmus, grimace, and tremors.

They end up with zombified behavior displaying no instinctive fear of humans. The neurological symptoms result from the virus passing through the blood brain barrier casing severe inflammation of the cortex and other regions of the brain. The study’s authors state:

Given the broad scope and ongoing nature of the outbreak, these cases likely represent only a small percentage of the total number and species of mammals infected with the currently circulating strain of HPAIv in the United States.

It’s been virtually confirmed that’s how the coronavirus pandemic started, from a test tube in one of the hundreds of Lloyd Austin DoD funded bioweapon labs around the globe, employing compartmentalized, largely amoral mad scientists to come up with the next “killer threat,” repeatedly promised by genocidal pandemic architect extraordinaires Bill Gates and Anthony Fauci, by Lucifer’s design, this latest potential killer appears no different, following the same follow-the-money, manmade pathogen pathway.

From April 1st to July 21st, 2022, H5N1 was isolated in 67 different animals spanning 10 states from Alaska to New York. The USGS study found 50 red foxes, six striped skunks, four raccoons, two bobcats, two Virginia opossums, one coyote, one fisher, and one grey fox, and a partridge in a pear tree all carrying HPAIv as their latest devilish test tube concoction.

The study’s scientists conclude that the mammals caught the virus from preying on infected wild birds, although they cannot rule out horizontal transmission within the mammal species as cats and ferrets have been known for this.

Also, transmission from mother to offspring is also possible. All this could be the prelude to the real-life manmade zombie apocalypse straight out of science fiction turned nightmarish nonfiction, thanks to the usual eugenic suspects.

On March 8th, 2023 before the House Oversight Committee, former CDC Director from 2018 to 2021, Dr. Robert Redfield voiced his opinion that a moratorium should be permanently placed on all gain-of-function research, also claiming he was kept out of all discussions on the origins of Covid-19 because he always suspected a lab leak.

Then, on Monday March 20th, 2023 on The Hill’s Rising program, Dr. Robert Redfield warned that through gain-of-function research, “a great pandemic is coming.” Here are Redfield’s alleged doomsday prophecy spoken on March 20th, 2023:

I do believe the next pandemic, and we’re going to have another pandemic and I think it’s going to be the great pandemic, I consider COVID a minor pandemic, the great pandemic’s going to come.

And normally, it would come from spillover…bird flu that learns how to transmit to humans and then go to human-to-human. But I think the species barriers are very real.

But it’s much more probable that it will happen because of gain-of-function research in a laboratory and then escape and then we’re going to have a pandemic…which will be much more brutal to the world than COVID was…

I told you that the great pandemic is coming. I think it’s going to come, not from spillover, it’s going to come from gain-of-function research or intentional bioterrorism.

It’s going to be a bird flu virus that is manipulated to be able to transmit human-to-human, very similar to what we saw with COVID.

No doubt gatekeeping useful idiots are hired to regularly spread panic and fear. Perhaps Dr. Redfield’s conscience may be a motivator revealing his unsettling recent disclosures. Or he could also be trying to save his own butt, spilling the beans on the diabolical cabal he served and perhaps is still serving as a fearmonger. 

Call it Satanic predictive programming or Redfield trying to partially shave time off his future in the klink, or a genuine insider’s warning of what is grimly coming our way.

Bottom line, the mammal-to-mammal spreading of this reportedly highly transmissible strain has never occurred before. It’s definitely gain-of-function rearing its ugly head yet again.

With the proven track record of manmade pathogens being developed and tweaked in a bioweapon lab specifically to harm humans fully documented now, pretending that this latest alleged growing threat is just nature organically mutating on its own is virtually impossible.

OVERCOMING THE FEAR OF FINANCES || LIVING WITH A KINGDOM FINANCIAL MINDSET

NOTE: This is a reprint of a post from the Kris Vallotton's website. Kris is a member on staff at Bethel Church in Redding, California. I share his posts here because I am always amazed at the insights the Lord gives him.

 

Have you ever found yourself on the hamster wheel of fear; endlessly running away from the very thing you’re afraid of just to find yourself right back where you started? So often in life, we can find ourselves in this endless cycle as we fret; spinning around and around until we regret ever taking a step on the wheel of dread. 


I’ve been there myself, holding on to fear until the very thing I incessantly worried about became a self-fulfilled prophecy. I’d propose, sometimes we fear something so much that we grasp it with all our might as if we are the savior of our own lives. When living in this state of fear, our actions quickly become consumed and dictated by the fear we are living in. What I am getting at is, sometimes the very reason we are in lack is because we didn’t take the seed we were given and do anything with it, instead we held it tight until we suffocated the life in it. Often, the question isn’t how much seed were you given, but what did you do with the seed? 

 

We see this very scene played out in the Parable of the Talents. “Now the one who had received the one talent also came up and said, ‘Master, I knew you to be a hard man, reaping where you did not sow, and gathering where you did not scatter seed. And I was afraid, so I went away and hid your talent in the ground. See, you still have what is yours.’ “But his master answered and said to him, ‘You worthless, lazy slave! Did you know that I reap where I did not sow, and gather where I did not scatter seed? Then you ought to have put my money in the bank, and on my arrival, I would have received my money back with interest. Therefore: take the talent away from him, and give it to the one who has the ten talents.’ (Matthew 25:24-28)


Did you catch that? The servant said, “I was afraid.” Fear is not our friend. Now, let me be clear, this doesn’t mean you should go out and spend all you have because fear is the only thing keeping you back. Rather, fear is not the emotion to operate out of, wisdom is. 


We are in a unique economic climate in history with much fear and uncertainty in the air. I recently sat down with Matt Moseley, the CEO of

Cornerstone Bank in Redding Ca. During our conversation, Matt stated, “If you are holding onto your seeds so much because you are so scared of dropping any of them, then you’re definitely not planting any of them.” It’s a biblical principle to invest the seeds we have been given in life. That might practically look like starting with shifting your mindset and being generous even when you feel like you have nothing to be generous with. 

I’d propose that often we misdiagnose a poverty mentality because we don’t recognize that it is connected to our identity. 


But, the truth is the promised land of princehood is filled with the Father’s blessings. God wants to lavish His love on us, pour out His blessings in us, and give more than we can contain! The Psalms put it best, “How blessed is the man who fears the Lord, who greatly delights in His commandments. His descendants will be mighty on earth; the generation of the upright will be blessed. Wealth and riches are in his house, and his righteousness endures forever” (Ps. 112:1-3).


I want to challenge you this week to examine your beliefs about who God says you are. How have your beliefs about your identity affected the way you approach finances? Invite Holy Spirit to partner with you in finances to show you areas of your life where you can grow in generosity and open your hand in faith.

NEWS CURRENT EVENTS, Thoughts

The Pope, The Qu’ran And A Call For Responsible Blogging

Depending on who you follow on FaceBook and depending on who your friends are, you can wake up in the morning and get overwhelmed and depressed for the entire day just reading through the first five minutes of your feed.

There was an article in a news feed not too long ago that read, “Pope Francis To Followers: ‘Koran And Holy Bible Are The Same.‘ I checked recently and that article is gone. (That’s a good thing. It was a questionable web site and a bad article.)

The Pope is questionable in a lot of people’s minds. According to the Malachi prophecy (a vision of 112 popes from the 11th century) this pope is the last one, and, according to some, the one who will usher in the anti-christ. You can, for instance, see this take on things on Sid Roth’s TV show, ‘It’s Supernatural.’

Click THIS LINK for the episode on Sid Roth’s show.

With this much negative attention from evangelicals about this pope, and with the convergence of events watched by many evangelicals such as the blood moons and the shemitta, it’s easy to see that, for many of them, this pope COULD look like the beginning of the end.

The typical evangelical Christian is kind of ‘predisposed’ to EXPECTING this sort of thing from the pope.

The antichrist is supposed to get all the followers of different religions to buy into a one-world religious system of sorts. So if the pope were to make a statement like this, it wouldn’t seem like that much of a stretch for many.

This post about the pope and the Qu’ran appeared to come from a respectable news source: the WASHINGTON POST. Most people know that the Washington Post is a major news outlet. The Washington Times might be bigger; but the Washington Post is a force to be reckoned with, nonetheless.

The problem is that this link to the ‘Washington Post’ wasn’t really a link to THE Washington Post at all. The REAL ‘Washington Post’ as a link of http://washingtonpost.COM but THIS ‘Washington Post’ was REALLY a link to http://washingtonpost.COM.CO which is another animal entirely. So who are they, exactly?

As I said, this site seems to be gone now. But there wasn’t much on the WashingtonPost.com.co website that indicated who they were.

It LOOKED like a news site. The little news ticker at the top of the page was well-presented; it cycled through news stories of the day; and when you got a quick glimpse of the address in the address bar, your eye picked up on “`washingtonpost.com”`and you miss the little “.co” tacked on the end; or else, you just might have assumed it is an extension of some sort. My bet is that is exactly what they were hoping.

A little disingenuous? I can’t say for sure….

I don’t want to rush to judgement on people’s motives here. But it seems like the motive sure was to create an impression that many people might well take for the real Washington Post web site.

Their site had links to interesting stuff. But it is the quality of reporting that concerns me: sites like this are not accountable for journalistic excellence the way a professional news organization is accountable, and it seemed to be lacking. I’ve seen a lot of these sites and they seem to suffer from a common malady.

By the way: just because a newspaper IS a major media outlet, it doesn’t mean they always get it right, either. For instance, there was quite a “hit piece” by an exuberant reporter at the Toronto Star, put on a conservative investigative reporter named Ezra Levant recently written. You can read the Star’s response when they were caught in an embarrassing situation.

Some blogs are written because people have a burning passion to disseminate truth to an audience that wants to hear it. And there are some who start and maintain blogs because blogging, when done well, can generate an income stream. There’s nothing wrong with that, necessarily. Even Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh started somewhere.

Anyway, from the washintonpost.com.CO article, we read this:

During his hour-long speech, a smiling Pope Francis was quoted telling the Vatican’s guests that the Koran, and the spiritual teachings contained therein, are just as valid as the Holy Bible.

“Jesus Christ, Mohammed, Jehovah, Allah. These are all names employed to describe an entity that is distinctly the same across the world. For centuries, blood has been needlessly shed because of the desire to segregate our faiths. This, however, should be the very concept which unites us as people, as nations, and as a world bound by faith. Together, we can bring about an unprecedented age of peace, all we need to achieve such a state is respect each others beliefs, for we are all children of God regardless of the name we choose to address him by. We can accomplish miraculous things in the world by merging our faiths, and the time for such a movement is now. No longer shall we slaughter our neighbors over differences in reference to their God.”

But, after doing some more research, our conclusions are similar to these (from a web site formerly called “thatsfake”:

Rumours that the Pope recently announced to his followers that the Holy Bible is the same as the Koran are circulating across social media. The rumours link back to an article on National Report that claims the Pope stated that Jesus Christ, Jehovah and Allah are different names to describe the same entity

However the rumours are false. There have been no mainstream media reports that claim the Pope likened the Bible and the Koran. It is true that in late 2014 the Pope was misquoted claiming that the Koran was a “prophetic book of peace” when he actually said this is how Muslims themselves describe their holy book.

The quotes and events in the National Report article appear to have been entirely fictionalised, with no other reputable reports claiming this to be true. Other low quality fake newswebsites, including a fake Washington Post website, have since republished the story.

Note: The “national report” website has since pulled the article. Good thing.

After more digging and cross-referencing, it appears that Pope Francis was essentially saying to them, ‘since you SAY that your muslim religion is a religion of peace, then let us work toward an end of living what we all claim to believe.’ He never said their Gods are the same; he never said the bible and the Qu’ran are equally the word of God. He said both Christians and Muslims claim to have roots in faith in a supreme God, and in living peacefully among men. He never said they are the same.

By the way, the disclaimer on the National Report said:

National Report is a news and political satire web publication, which may or may not use real names, often in semi-real or mostly fictitious ways. All news articles contained within National Report are fiction, and presumably fake news. Any resemblance to the truth is purely coincidental.

The story is badly reported. But a lot of conservative-leaning people read their stuff, repost it on the internet; and then a lot of OTHER people read it and re-post; and the skewed stories go round and round and round. Spewing stuff out for sensationalism, and conveniently covering it with a cheesy disclaimer that “any resemblance to the truth is purely coincidental” is ridiculous.

At the washingtonpost.com.co website, there is this disclaimer:

This website is in no way affiliated with http://washingtonpost.com.  All content contained within has been reposted with the express written consent of the copyright holder.  If you are interested in acquiring this domain, please visit the ‘Purchase this Domain’ link.

I’m not sure of their motives. It feels like they’re trying to give an impression that they’re something they’re not. I just don’t know. What seems more certain is that they’re not so concerned about literary and journalistic excellence as they should be for the amount of influence they have, and for the number of people who will read this with an expectation that it’s true. It is presented like news; it needs to be researched and fact-checked in the same way. In this sense, we ARE our brother’s keeper.

If a blog is JUST about creating content to monetize for an income stream, then it’s easy enough to do. You don’t need to do a lot of hard work. And it doesn’t take a lot to convince people that what you’re saying is true. You quote some sources, you speak with authority and consistency and people believe you. But then again, they believed Bill Clinton, too. But the results can be so unfair and destructive to the body of Christ. Look, for instance, at what they do to Rick Warren, and how they seem to badly mangle what he is really trying to say. As Rick Warren says, it’s easier to demonize. It’s easier to be extreme: you only get one group mad at you instead of when you try to walk the middle, and get hit from both sides.

And this is a word of caution for any reader in the blogosphere. In the multitude of counselors there is wisdom. BE CAUTIOUS. Blogs that report events in a ‘news fashion’ owe it to their readers to do good research. But they don’t. At least, not all of them do.

Getting opinions from people by reading their blogs is fine. We are all curious about what other people think. But take everything that is presented as fact with a grain of salt. Do your homework. Check multiple sources. ALWAYS see what the other side has to say. Sites like thatsfake.com and snopes.com might not always be right, either. But they try; they show a healthy skepticism; and they give you things to think about (if you really WANT to think about it) from a different perspective.

Jesus said, ‘the truth will make you free.’ That applies, no matter WHAT the subject matter.

Regards,

The Cognitive Guy.

I intend to start an archive of sorts, rating ‘news’ sources as I come across them, to keep people informed of what my findings are regarding who is reliable, who doesn’t seem to care, who seems to explore the issues, who is writing satire, and who may or may not be writing satire but just don’t seem to bother telling you.

I’d love to have you subscribe to my email list, so I can keep you informed of updates on these kinds of things from time to time. Check back soon. I’m still working on it.

An Open Letter To Donald Trump From A Reluctant Fan

NOTE: THIS post is from a while ago. (In fact, it is from before the 2016 elections.) But I think it speaks volumes to the fact that my initial hunches were correct about him. I took this down a while back but have decided to put it back up again, unedited. I will also be writing an update soon. (Soon, as in before the election.)

This has truly been the first U. S. election cycle in my adult life where I’ve really been fascinated, amused and bewildered more than I’ve had a clear sense of what to make of the process, let alone how to feel about the prospects for the future.

Like him or hate him, you can’t deny that “The Donald” has truly swept through this election cycle with a lot of “influence.” He is a master at baffling and aggravating the media, and it doesn’t even appear to be calculated so much as second-nature to him to flourish in the controversy.

Why I’m Writing This Letter, Knowing He Will Never See It

I’m writing this “open letter” to Donald Trump more for the church because I’m more baffled by how the evangelical Christian community seems so divided on this issue of whether or not we should be supporting this guy. I recognize that some of my brothers and sisters in Christ don’t agree with me about whether a vote for Donald instead of Hillary or Gary is the wisest move to make. I can’t condemn them as ungodly or unspiritual. But I do consider them unwise. Quite frankly, though, it’s hard for everyone to see it sometimes, for all the bad “signal-to-noise ratio” right now.

Hoping to unite the church and unify our vision about where we should be wanting God to take this country, I’m writing to verbalize what I believe are some collective thoughts from those of a similar mindset to mine. I don’t presume to speak for everyone. But I do think I speak for many.

So here is what I would say to The Donald if I ever had the chance to do so. And for my readers, I would ask you to please hear that this is my heart about the situation as much as I can articulate it. I hope it helps us all to focus on where God needs our hearts to be in this matter.

Dear Donald;

I truly doubt whether you’ll ever see this letter, let alone give it much time or consideration. You’re a busy man and I don’t presume to have the right to take up much of your time.

It’s not that you don’t care.

Actually, I truly believe you do care. And when I say that, I actually do so with a wee little bit of inside knowledge.

You see, I happen to have a casual connection to a gentleman who I consider a friend – a man of character and with a common heart for Jesus, who is in the entertainment industry and who says he knows you personally. As a result, I’ve heard a couple little tidbits of your personal side that others might not know. People sometimes talk about the concept of “six degrees of separation.” As it turns out, between you and me, there are a mere two degrees of separation. I was partly won over to you by how this gentleman speaks of you from a more personal basis.

I Understand Why Many People Like You

Having heard some things, I will say that you remind me of a man who fits a description that I’ve heard used once before about my father: you’re mister crunchy on the outside and mister marshmallow on the inside.

Sir, please know that everything I’m saying here, I’m saying with the firm conviction that YOU are the man for the job. There is no doubt in my mind that, given a choice of the options available for anyone voting, you are straight away the only guy who seems to come anywhere near acknowledging the real issues that are threatening the very culture and fabric of our society and threatening the freedoms we hold so dear.

You’ve got a charisma about you and a presence when you walk into a room that cuts to the chase and gets down to business. And with the low attention voter these days, that is important.

My concern, when I saw things coming down to the wire between you and Ted Cruz, was that he seemed to have more appeal to those in the evangelical church; my fear was that he didn’t have the charisma to be able to get the attention of the guy on the street compared to you, when it came to defeating Hillary. My thought was that if Cruz won the primary, Hillary would win the election. But you connect in a way that Ted just cannot seem to do.

The media machine is stacked against the conservatives. The media is awash in political correctness and infiltrated by connections to and corruption from the current political establishment. As such, they’re hell-bent against you.

Yet, you’ve confronted that issue head-on. You know how to play the media like a bad fiddle. Your fans love it. Remember that day you announced you were going to discuss the birther issue, and then you had twenty minutes worth of the best of the best of the military brass singing your praises about national security? That day was priceless. You had them in knots. You played their game against them and won that round. Your fans were in stiches with laughter and glee.

You played it well. Good game, sir.

But I’ve also never seen the leadership of the evangelical church so divided over a candidate in my life. And quite frankly, some of the arguments I’ve heard about why people shouldn’t vote for you stagger my imagination. I think James Patrick Riley nailed it when he discussed this issue as a religious spirit.  As James says, Max Lucado is a great example of what sure feels like hypocrisy. James writes,

Max leads what he calls a “red state” church, but Max has a maxim:  ”I don’t want anybody to know how I vote.”  Max does this to make sure the Democratic voters in his church, the ones who support abortion on demand, Islamo-pandering, and class warfare are not made to feel uncomfortable.   However, Max recently broke his neutrality pledge when Donald Trump called a bimbo a bimbo. According to Max:

I would not have said anything about Mr. Trump, never — I would never have said anything if he didn’t call himself a Christian. It’d be none of my business whatsoever to make any comments about his language, his vulgarities, his slander of people, but I was deeply troubled … that here’s a man who holds up a Bible one day, and calls a lady “bimbo” the next.

Think on that for a moment. Max closes his eyes to another “Christian,” Barack Obama, who stands foursquare for the slaughter of millions of unborn babies, at your expense, but Donald Trump called a lady a “bimbo?”  Intolerable!  Unthinkable!  Impolite! Time to engage the Pharisee warp engines.

I’ve quite frankly always been baffled by church people who are offended by other people’s language. First Corinthians says “love is not easily offended.” I could stand up in the middle of a lot of these congregations and say “the whole damn country is going to hell in a hand basket” and many of the people in that group would be more offended by my use of the word “damn” in that sentence than they would be grieved about the state of the country that prompted me to say it.

I, for one, am not like that. Your language doesn’t offend me. Quite frankly, it doesn’t offend a lot of us; probably because (and I don’t want to offend you, sir, but…) I see you as kind of “rough around the edges” as far as having learned Christianese. I do believe you’re a Christian, though perhaps new to the experience. But I give benefit of the doubt. Even if you’re not, you, like people such as Michael Savage, certainly seem to appreciate the value of religious freedom and the need to fight for that for the country.

I WANT TO SAY TWO THINGS TO YOU, SIR.

And I hope you can hear my heart as I do so. I want to tell you why you have my vote; and I want to offer you some advice, if I can, from my view as a voter, with you knowing I say it as someone who would already vote for you.

THIS IS WHY YOU HAVE MY VOTE

You have my vote because you seem to be surrounding yourself with people who hold values similar to the ones I think need to be embraced to save the country.

No one knows the future, and since I don’t know all of your heart, I can’t know for certain that the pro-life position you seem to have adopted of late isn’t just a sham to get yourself in good with the evangelical voter. You speak spontaneously enough about these issues that you don’t sound like you are anything but genuine in your desire to support the kind of things I think need to be supported.

You Seem To Really Want To Do What You Say

You are surrounding yourself with people with proven track records in the right direction; your list of supreme court picks you would likely suggest seems to be pretty solid and constitutionally sound. Given the alternative that has been consistently demonstrated by Hillary, I would say you are a slam dunk for a guy like me.

You aren’t afraid to say that the emperor has no clothes.

I like that in a politician. You don’t seem to be worried about political correctness AT ALL. While everyone else seems to tiptoe around the reality that letting multiple thousands of Syrian refugees into the country with a demonstrably failed vetting process is a bad idea, you go full force into that problem and when you are confronted about it, you are not afraid to double down on your position. People admire the fact that you’re a straight shooter.

Your Concerns Resonate With Many In The Evangelical Community

Sir, there are many, many of us who recognize the problems with the porosity of the southern border, the failed education system, the bowing to special interest groups to buy votes so the democrats can enshrine themselves in the permanent establishment class and all the hypocrisy and cronyism that plagues politics these days. We recognize that free trade isn’t a bad thing but that unfair trade deals are very bad indeed. When you speak of these issues, this is what we hear.

I’m not afraid that you’re an outsider. I believe that you recognize you can’t do it alone and so you seem to be surrounding yourself with people who will do well to guide and direct you as the president.

I’m sure there will be many like Max Lucado who disagree with me. But it’s what I see. Given the choices today, you are really the only choice if this country is not to descend into a godless, totalitarian dictatorship.

AND NOW (FOR THE STICKY PART) CAN I OFFER SOME ADVICE?

Sir, you ALREADY have my vote. Please take note of the fact that you have already won the hearts and minds of a vast portion of the population. And please hear this advice though that perspective.

The fact of the matter, sir, is that I would feel a lot better about you as the future president and would be able to defend you more enthusiastically if you did the rest of your campaigning from the perspective that you already have it in the bag.

Quite frankly, I’m a little embarrassed when I have to defend your positions against a backdrop of the constant media spotlight on things you say that you don’t have to say. Sometimes, less is more. And beyond a point, you do more harm than good when you go after your opponents with efforts to make sure everyone understands just how bad the people are who throw mud at you and try to throw you under the bus.

PLEASE, JUST DON’T DO THAT ANYMORE.

Please (for the good of the country) continue in this debate cycle, this campaign cycle and the rest of this race with the attitude that you already have this in the bag. Please change your tone from having to prove you are right about your enemies to be one of speaking as the leader of both those who like you and those who do not. And speak to what must be done more than you speak to how they’re trying to stop you.

Once you get to office, that will be behind you. You will need to just get the job done. The enemies will still be there. And you’ll have to work around them.

I’m not saying you should not proceed as if there is no fight; I’m saying to proceed as if you have the assurance that there are many like me who will turn out in droves this election (though many of them may never have voted before) because your message resonates with our understanding of what hangs in the balance.

But please don’t cloud the resonance of your message with the noise of your need to constantly defend all the reasons you dislike your opponents and the prattle of assassinations on their character. You must be above this. It’s beneath the dignity of the president I truly hope you will soon become.

If you can develop the mindset that you are already governing; if you can speak to the American people with a mindset that you’ve already won the election – and based on the poles, it seems to be the case – then you will win over the hearts and minds of all the Max Lucados of the world, and you will win this election. This mindset will become a self-fulfilling prophecy.

Be Presidential – NOW – Even Before You’re President

“For those who believe, no explanation is necessary; for those who do not believe, no explanation is possible.” You will always have your friends and your enemies. Your friends will try to look past your flaws and lovingly point them out to you if you will hear them; your enemies will continue to rearrange their prejudices to justify all the reasons they hate you.

But as far as it depends on you, you need to see yourself as the president. You can no longer continue to act merely as the watchman on the wall for the problems with the bias in the media. You need to govern from the campaign trail (and if you can see this, you will have more influence). You have a higher role now – even now, while you are still campaigning – of pointing out not merely what is wrong, but what your vision is about what you are going to do to make it right.

Your role as president will not be to punish those who besmirch your name; we’ve seen enough of this in the last eight years, and it’s ugly.

Your role will be to rule over all the people wisely, even as they cannot see how critical the decisions are that you are making and how much you are making those decisions for the benefit of all – even for the benefit of those who will always hate you.

Unlike Hillary, who seems to pander to whoever she needs to pander so she can get the power to turn the country into her own seat of power, the people who believe in you see that you truly love the United States. We see that you truly want to make it great again. We believe what you believe about what it will take. And we have your back. We pray for you to succeed.

But we want a presidential candidate who looks and walks and talks like a PRESIDENT. Please rise above the rhetoric and give us the best of yourself. Strive to focus on the greatness that can be brought out of the average guy on the street if he’s given a chance.

Strive to become a man who displays the kind of character we want to brag and boast about.

Sir, God does not deal with us merely by our history but from His view of us from our destiny. We want to see you this way too. Based on the climate, we believe you are the best – perhaps the only – chance we have to turn the country around. We want to believe in you. Please honor us with your best as we head into this future together, upholding you in prayer, and cheering for your growth into becoming a true man of God to lead the nation in truth and justice.

We pray for you and humbly ask you to continue to strive to become the kind of man that inspires us want to become a better country.

And THAT is truly presidential.

Regards,

The Cognitive Man
