Jesus uses images and parables to teach me lessons, He knows exactly how to help me to understand truth. He gave me an image in my mind shortly after I was born again, to better help me understand what’s happening in spirit when we entertain satan’s thoughts, and JESUS is leading me to share it with you to better help you understand…
MOST of the spiritual battle is in the mind. When someone is confused of a matter or situation, JESUS commands us to seek HIM first. That’s why He said to seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness. Because He will answer us with TRUTH. I have learned since the beginning of my walk that satan does not waste any time to start shooting arrows of doubt and fear at a persons mind. Doubting JESUS and His will is sin. When one learns what doubting is, then there remains no excuse to continue to remain in that sin. If a person does not immediately take captive the thoughts of doubt and give it to JESUS, then they are choosing to let go of Jesus’ hand in that moment whether they realize it or not and they begin taking a walk with satan. Notice how the ONE thought then turns into a conversation with the devil .Until that person seeks the LORD in that moment, they will continue to be open to the attacks of satan, he will continue to plant more seeds of confusion and doubt within the persons mind and heart if they continue to listen to him. JESUS may intercede in that moment, however He does not force us to listen to Him, He is testing us to see who we will listen to, but the LORD does NOT tempt us. He has already told us to seek Him first, so there is no excuse to continue to take a walk with satan. Resist satan and he will flee. Do not take the devil’s hand in that moment that you are tempted, go to JESUS with all questions, keep hold of the LORD’S hand and continue to trust His counsel. If you are confused, go to JESUS. Jesus is the voice of truth, and He is THE mighty counselor, we can trust Him. Ask to know His voice and to have the strength to obey daily.
I cannot tell you how many times I have let go of the LORD’S hand and my relationship with Him hindered, I wasn’t able to overcome and to grow in my faith because I had chosen to listen to satan’s arrows of fear and doubt, please learn from me and just go to JESUS for every thought and questions you have. When one entertains satan’s thoughts, then they walk in agreement with satan and it gives him legal right to continue to torment the mind with more thoughts of doubt and more seeds of confusion. JESUS has chastised me many times for dropping His hand, He actually gets jealous when we drop His hand and take hold of satan’s hand if even for a moment, it’s not worth hurting Him, just trust Him. Jesus can teach you the tactics of the enemy without having to fall for his tricks. Jesus taught me this lesson in times when I have fallen. The righteous fall but they get back up, praise the LORD. Do whatever Jesus commands you, no matter what it is or how peculiar it seems. His people live by faith, not by sight. JESUS loves you and HE cares, He wants to guide you and teach you all things. He knows the battle is hard and He will be there to pick you up if you will call out to Him. What an AWESOME GOD HE IS!
IF YOU KNOW JESUS, REMAIN IN HIM. DON’T LET GO OF HIS HAND, DON’T LOOK BACK….keep moving forward. This city of destruction (world) is temporary, it’s going to burn!! Jesus will give us the strength we need to obey. We MUST endure to the END, WE MUST NOT LET GO OF JESUS. HE is worth all the pain and suffering of this temporary life. ♥
Jesus reveals the secrets of broken hearts to His children for the purpose of bringing restoration and reconciliation to the wounded and lost souls. Jesus does this supernatural work by pouring out His heart to His children who will then speak His interpretation to the lost soul that they might see their hearts condition and choose to repent. THE LORD ministers through His children to the broken soul with the wisdom and understanding that HE has given them about each individual heart. His will is for all to come to repentance.
For I have no pleasure in the death of him that dieth, saith the Lord GOD: wherefore turn yourselves, and live ye. Ezekiel 18:32
JESUS knows EXACTLY how to minister to each soul and He will not withhold the understanding for His children to minister and witness to others, if they will seek Him diligently and with the right heart motive. It is NOT enough for a sheep to receive understanding of a person’s heart condition to bring healing; one must seek the LORD with the right heart motive to be able to minister to each soul effectively. Many are seeking the Lord for wisdom for self gain, wealth and to become religious teachers and to have the praise of man. His children are also called to share HIS testimonies, understanding and HIS wisdom that was learned of their own sinful past, current painful trials and tribulations FREE of charge to anyone who is willing to listen. His children will not take credit nor will they boast in their works as it is the LORD who guides His sheep. This life is ALL about JESUS. His sheep LIVE to obey their shepherd, and to care for souls. His sheep NEED HIS counsel daily.
But as for me, this secret is not revealed to me for any wisdom that I have more than any living, but for their sakes that shall make known the interpretation to the king, and that thou mightest know the thoughts of thy heart. Daniel 2:20
Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword. For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law. And a man’s foes shall be they of his own household.
He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me. He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it.
I am come to send fire on the earth; and what will I, if it be already kindled? But I have a baptism to be baptized with; and how am I straitened till it be accomplished! Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you, Nay; but rather division: For from henceforth there shall be five in one house divided, three against two, and two against three. The father shall be divided against the son, and the son against the father; the mother against the daughter, and the daughter against the mother; the mother in law against her daughter in law, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.
Jesus is not in the system of money and labor. It was never his will for you to feel obligated to work hard for a family to store perishable things of this world. He dwells in the heart that labors in getting to know Him, one that loves and obeys him. A person who loves the LORD will do His will even when it causes our joy and comforts, one who is diligently seeking righteousness and truth in all things.
Lay aside the burden that the world puts on you. We don’t need material things; a career, house, money, clothes or anything else to give us joy. If we were homeless JESUS would STILL provide. All we need is JESUS (truth).
Imagine living in a shack such as this one…
…this shack is full of pure laughter and joy, and set apart from flattery and opinions of man, having no more worries, burdens or expectations of a world that tells us what we need to achieve to be “happy and successful”. A family who spends the day genuinely loving each other and going on walks and talking with Jesus, dancing in the freedom from bill collectors, and the false comfort of health and life insurance that expires after this life!!
Imagine living in this shack with the ones you love, with an eternal goal of real happiness which is seeking Jesus with all of your heart, sanctification, living holy and longing for the day our Lord brings justice and comes to gather His bride. Those who have His spirit have freedom from bondage of sin and the things of this world, they are free from a system that places burden on laborers backs without end. Be separate from this world and trust in JESUS today!
You see every pebble that falls from a mountain, and every snowflake that blankets the quiet forests.
You see every leaf that falls, every rain drop, every flower that blooms.
You see every tree rise, every piece of grass that takes its place, and weed hidden deep within bristle.
You see every caves deepest secrets, every creature unknown to man in the seas, swamps and desert.
You see every cloud lose its shape to form a new, and every gust of wind that blows in all direction.
You see every wave that crashes, every bubble that forms from the breath of your mammals.
You see every insect, every parasite and everything that is invisible to man’s naked eye.
You see every vine that reaches for the sky, every pebble and roots that bury themselves deep within your earth.
You see all of your creations, creatures and the heart motivations of man; NOTHING is hidden from the eye of our creator!

There is a real daily spiritual battle for souls and a real judgement that will determine every souls eternal destination. satan is keeping record of all who love and prosper in his worldly anti-Christ kingdom and he will use it against every defiled soul. Nothing defiled will enter into the LORDS Kingdom. REPENT. ♥ JESUS CHRIST is calling you to be HIS WITNESS and stand for TRUTH!
Pray and ask JESUS to give you understanding of the battle that YOU are in daily for your soul. If you are unaware of the battle that goes on, then you need to be born again, but in order for that to take place once needs to KNOW that they are in desperate need a of Savior AND a repentant heart… ask Jesus for His spirit and for a new heart condition. Being born again is a supernatural moment, only those who are born again can understand what takes place. Jesus lifts the blinders from our eyes and we SEE the TRUTH and the world through HIS eyes.
We must hold captive EVERY thought to the LORDSHIP OF JESUS. Meaning, we will know and understand if something is true by the discernment we have in knowing the truth we receive by getting to know JESUS. The more time you spend with JESUS, the more He will open your eyes to the VERY REAL spiritual battle that is going on every second of your life and it has been going on since you were conceived. Satan wants to take as many souls to hell as he can and he will not quit trying to deceive people and trying to tempt in all our decision making and thoughts daily. JESUS will guide your thoughts if you ALLOW Him to be LORD of your mind, heart and soul (life).
Ask Jesus for wisdom on the verses below…
Romans 8:12-13 Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh. For if you live after the flesh, you shall die: but if you through the Spirit do put to death the deeds of the body, you shall live.
Romans 8:6 For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.
(To live carnally minded, double minded, doubting the LORDS power in our lives, compromising the truth, sinning AFTER we know its sin, is living by FLESH and all who continue to do so will die a spiritual death and not enter into the kingdom of heaven)
Galatians 6:8 For he that sows to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that sows to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.
1 Corinthians 9:24-27 Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain. And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible. I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air: But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.
Colossians 3:5-6 Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry: For which things’ sake the wrath of God comes on the children of disobedience
Ephesians 5:13-14 But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever does make manifest is light. Therefore he says, Awake you that sleep, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give you light.
John 3:20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.
Galatians 5:16This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.
Galatians 5:24 And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.
Romans 6:5-6 Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that we should no longer serve sin. For IF we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection; Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin MIGHT be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin
1 Peter 2:11 Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul
1 Peter 4:1-6 Forasmuch then as Christ hath suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves likewise with the same mind: for he that hath suffered in the flesh hath ceased from sin; That he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh to the lusts of men, but to the will of God. For the time past of our life may suffice us to have wrought the will of the Gentiles, when we walked in lasciviousness, lusts, excess of wine, revellings, banquetings, and abominable idolatries: Wherein they think it strange that ye run not with them to the same excess of riot, speaking evil of you: who shall give account to him that is ready to judge the quick and the dead. For for this cause was the gospel preached also to them that are dead, that they might be judged according to men in the flesh, but live according to God in the spirit.
Romans 8:1 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk NOT after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
