These are all my kids I built everything you see and Moore I even purchased the land well not
really I had much help I was just the startup guy. They all come in as Muslims or Hindu an
become Christians. So far we have been doing it for about 15 years,” thousand are being saved.
God is good “love Him”.Want to help let me know?

I ( Dr.Babu Narendran) became a Christian when I was a student in my teens. It was through reading the
Bible and through reading some Christian literature.Being a Hindu by birth, I had much opposition from
the family even to the extent of being excommunicated for a time.

But by the Lord’s mercy, I was able to sustain all those hardships. After my salvation experience and
water baptism, I found myself in many different denominations to attend the Sunday meetings and I also
involved in active gospel preaching and evangelism with many Christian organizations. Yet something
inside me was longing for the reality of the Body of Christ.

After graduating from the Medical College, as per my desire to serve as a Medical missionary, I chose a
rural village in my own native state, Kerala ( in south India) to work as a Medical Doctor under the
Government. After the working hours I found myself in preaching the gospel to the villagers and conduct
meetings for them. In 1983, Sally and I got married. Sally was born and brought up in a protestant
Christian family and she was saved at the age of 17 in a Sunday School Teacher’s Camp. Sally is also of
the same commitment and commission as Dr.Babu had- to serve the poor and the needy people through
their profession After our wedding, we both worked in a city in two different hospitals and were making a
good living. However, we did not have any satisfaction as we had our vision and commission disturbing
us all the time. Our hearts were out and out for mission fields with people who have not heard even the
name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Welcome to Good Shepherd School, Masinagudi
Over the years of struggling and labor of faith, Lord enabled us to share the Good News to so many
people in the villages through our medical clinic and through our village medical out-reaches. Seeing the
hundreds of thousands of village children living in poverty, nakedness by being neglected even by their
parents who has no awareness of their own needs, and also by realizing the tremendous potentials in
those children for the future of the lord’s move in this country, we took the step of faith to start this Good
Shepherd School in 2002.

shape students into complete individuals.

The Wicked One and His Evil Demons

Religion

Religion column written by Dr. Bob Allen:

Part 1 of 3
1Peter 5:8 says, “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion walks about, seeking whom he may devour.” Boy, that is a powerful statement. The roaring lion is the Devil. Peter says he is your adversary. He is nothing but a liar. You as a Christian can beat him every time with the truth. Peter said to Ananias, “why has Satan filled your heart to lie to the Holy Ghost?” Peter knew the roaring lion. He knew that he was a liar. Be careful here! He is also out to devour you and your loved ones like he did Ananias.

The devil is no match for you; the spirit filled child of God. In fact, The Lord Jesus has defeated him, and he knows it. But the devil also knows that you don’t know it unless you know the truth. The truth that you are loved, and, empowered and precious in the sight of God.

Now this is the picture of Satan’s powerful, unholy government.

These facts are very important. Satan operates in, what I call, an unholy trinity. There are three major demon spirits that all other demon spirits seem to have tentacles attached: insecurity, inferiority, and the accuser of the brethren. All demon spirits travel this road to get to you. So, all demonic problems are rooted here. Show me a person with these issues, and I will show you a person who is listening to the “roaring lion.” If you fit into this category, Satan has a green light to your life.

Because of our fallen nature from the sin of Adam, many are still dealing with childhood damage in adult life. The accuser is always there to help you to be miserable. Watch for signs concerning you and members of your family. Are you or your loved ones a target?

The demon’s job is to keep you down forever. The root demons of insecurity, inferiority, and the accuser of the brethren have tentacles to demons of depression, oppression, fear, rejection, rebellion, unforgiveness, lust, drunkenness, drugs, alcohol, pornography, lying, suicide, the occult, procrastination, homosexuality, and so on.

He will give you the card he wants you to hold. If you have insecurity or inferiority working in your life, it is a playground for the devil. The accuser can work other demonic spirits into your situation at his will. He will find the one that fits you. However, these are just tools. A failure is a tool the devil loves. Failure to him is like gas on fire! When you feel like a failure that gives the accuser the green light. Get out of the fire.

His best work is done when he has you down; beating and accusing yourself, or in conflict with yourself, This is the devil’s playground. Stay out of his sandbox.

Many never find significance because of insecurity, and inferiority and the accusing spirits. We need to understand that the demon spirit should not lead us because we are lead by the Spirit of God. However, demons will always try to direct your life.
Insecurity: Not sure of anything, not feeling safe, always looking for something, or somebody to hold onto. You will grab hold of the wrong thing looking for security. You will lie about anything in hopes of making something work for you. Dad and Mom keep an eye on your kids. Watch for signs of insecurity.

Drunkenness, drugs, fear, and the occult is really about your trying to hide your life, and it never works because wherever you go, there you are.
Inferiority: Feeling inferior, always feeling like you come up short, like something is missing, there just has to be more than this; why me? I hate this world; I wish I had never been born, I wish I were dead. Always restless.

Depression, oppression. You’re just not anchored down. Your problems out number your solutions. The enemy then goes to work on you. The demons blind you and convince you that you cannot see your way out. Then the accuser of the brethren tells you continuously all about you and your problems. He will definitely put the “right”, but a wrong person in your life just in time for his plan to work. You may have him or her now. If you felt unloved; remember the devil can match you up with his choices, and he can twist minds.

Both insecurity and inferiority can cause conflict in the mind. Your mind truly wants to do what is right, but there is that old life of sin or bad judgment calls that are always there. They sit there. They are caused by the decisions you have already made, and this is where the accuser of the brother comes in. He can put one side of the mind in conflict against the other. (the new you and the old you)Migraine headaches, worry, and fear, can come out of this. It can come from past relationships, failures and families issues.

Drug habits: a masterpiece of the devil. Druggies are slaves. Your children will rob your money, hurt you and your family to support a drug habit. Satan drives them. They are good people, just deceived. The cost is very great. The young men who went off to war, in World War 11, came back and really made America great. Well, many, many mother’s sons in this same age group are in prison and jails all across America today. There are two million, two hundred and twenty-three thousand adults incarcerated at this time, in our nation, and most have drug related problems.

Let me just take a moment here to share something with you. Have you noticed law enforcement has been fighting this drug problem and have spent billions on it for over forty years? Today any kid can buy drugs anytime he wants; it is just as if the law did not exist. Law enforcement has lost the battle. The Lord showed me that it is a spiritual problem and one of the greatest weapons the devil has ever had to destroy families and to destroy lives. Drug addiction has to be defeated with spiritual power. Wake up sleepy Church and get to work.

“JOY”

Religion

Religion article written by Dr. Bob Allen:

RECOVERING THE POWER OF JOY News Of Great Joy “And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.” (Luke 2:10-11) The great theme of Christmas is Joy – joy that a Savior has come, joy that the door is open for all men to return to the blessing and favor of God – joy arising from our faith in the good tidings of great joy. Joy is one of the great themes of the Bible. It is the natural response to the revelation of goodness of God. There are more 800 scriptures that exhort us to rejoice or praise the Lord. Paul actually says that our assignment in life is to praise God. “We were also chosen as God’s own, .. in order that we who were the first to hope in Christ would be for the praise of His glory.” (Ephesians 1:11-12) Our highest destiny is to acknowledge, welcome, and rejoice in God ‘s goodness.

Obviously praise and thanksgiving is not the language of the world around us. It is definitely not the language of politics or of the media. Praise is the holy language of the priests of the Most High God. “7 On that day David first appointed Asaph and his associates to give praise to the Lord in this manner: 8 Give praise to the Lord, proclaim his name; make known among the nations what he has done. 9 Sing to him, sing praise to him; tell of all his wonderful acts. 10 Glory in his holy name; let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice. 11 Look to the Lord and his strength; seek his face always.” (I Chronicles 16.7)

The language of the world is colored by fear, anxiety and worry. It is a language of complaint – what the Bible calls ‘murmuring’. Before we became believers and discovered the inexhaustible grace and provision of God, most of us spoke that language too. However, When God (through Jesus’ coming, death, resurrection and ascension) lifted us up out of
the miry pit of the world, to sit with Him in the heavens. He lifted us out of the strife and fear that controls the world. He also gave us a new language and put a song of praise in our mouths. “He brought me up also out of the pit of hopelessness, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock and straightened my steps. He has put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God.” (Psalm 40:2-3)

The Rejoicing Priesthood

As followers of Jesus, we share in His priesthood, and as priests we are appointed to give thanks and praise. “But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light; who once were not a people but are now the people of God, who had not obtained mercy but now have obtained mercy.” (1 Peter 2:9-10) It is the assignment of God’s priests to thank and praise the Lord and invoke His help in the face of life’s problems. We do this through the language of victory and praise. It is easy for intercessors to be distracted by the problems they are praying about and lose their focus on the goodness and power of God. The task of the true priesthood, however is to • shift our focus upward to the glorious presence of Our Loving Heavenly Father, • declare and rejoice in His goodness and • invoke His mighty help in the face of life’s difficulties. This life of praise and thanksgiving is not only our assignment – God commands it! “Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. Do not quench the Spirit.” (1 Th. 5:17-19)

It Is Not “Sticking Our Heads In The Sand” Some people do not understand the power of rejoicing in the Lord and dismiss it as “happy clappy emotionalism.” In 1989 the then Archbishop of Canterbury famously dismissed charismatic praise as ‘happy-clappy emotionalism”. The lifestyle of thanksgiving and praising God should never be dismissed as shallow, unexamined optimism. Some have even abandoned the lifestyle of praise and rejoicing for fear of being labeled as shallow and not serious enough. When we embrace the heavenly lifestyle of joy, rejoicing, thanksgiving and praise we are not acting as if there were no sorrow, no evil no tribulation in the world or in our lives. We are not “sticking our heads in the sand.” we are connecting ourselves with the joy and resources of heaven, We are not thanking God for the evil that is in the world or acting in some sort of smug indifference to the problems and sufferings that lie all around us. We are declaring that He is at hand and is more powerful than all the evil around us and that He can release His redemptive help on the scene when we invite Him to.

“Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice! …. The Lord is at hand. Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; 7 and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” (Phil. 4:4-7) The call to rejoicing is not in any way shallow. It is a holy and resolute focus on the goodness of God in the face of adversity. It is the highest expression of the overcoming life. Far from being an expression of shallowness – it is the secret of the martyrs. We see it exemplified in Jehoshaphat’s great victory over the Assyrians (2 Chronicles 20). We see it in Paul & Silas’ victory over self-pity and discouragement in the jail at Philippi. Through praise and thanksgiving they released the miraculous working of God, the activity of angels and a chain reaction of revival. Discouragement threatens to ‘quench the spirit’ but praise and thanksgiving releases the operation of the Holy Spirit anew. “Because you did not serve the Lord your God with joy and gladness of heart, for the abundance of everything, therefore you shall serve your enemies.” (Deut. 28.48) While praise has its positive benefits making a way for power of God and His angels to act on our behalf, grumbling on the other hand makes us vulnerable to the operation of the Evil One. Scripture not only exhorts us to praise but also warns us from grumbling.

“(And do not) complain, as some of them also complained, and were destroyed by the destroyer.” (I Cor. 10.10 He Who Sits In The Heaven Laughs Praise and thanksgiving is impossible to the earthbound and for those who have lost sight of the presence, power and purpose of God. It is the birthright of those who have been lifted into the heavens in Christ Jesus. (Ephesians 1) “He who sits in the heavens laughs.” “All the days of the afflicted are evil, but he who is of a merry heart has a continual feast.” We who have been lifted with Christ Jesus to sit in the heavens can laugh in the face of life’s problems, can rejoice in the midst of sufferings and can glory in the face of tribulation. We can do this because we live by faith and not by sight. We can constantly rely on God our Father’s continuous comfort, His provision of strength as we look to His ultimate triumph. “Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? … in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.” (Rom. 8:35-37) Joy In Evangelizing In evangelizing we usually ask people to forsake their sins and turn back to God and His ways. We can also approach the subject in a different but equally valid way. We can invite people to lift their minds and mouths away from their frustration with their inability to solve all their own problems and discover God’s ability to help them in all their problems. We can invite them to abandon disillusionment and discouragement with life and discover for themselves God’s goodness and mercy – to which they have access by the coming and work of the Savior. We can invite them to the life of joy and rejoicing and encourage them to abandon the life of despair discouragement, grumbling and disillusionment. “Therefore they shall come streaming to the goodness of the Lord … and they shall sorrow no more at all.” (Jer. 31.12) The coming and work of Jesus has opened up a new life and makes possible a life of joy and rejoicing and regardless of our circumstances. We see the people of every nation and religion hearing the glad tiding of great joy and d streaming to the goodness of their Creator revealed in the coming and work of the Savior. Let’s provoke the world to jealousy by the joy we have though Him.

Let’s rediscover the Hallelujah factor!

Life Is Good – God Always Loves You

Tongues the Power Gift

Religion

Religion article written by Dr. Bob Allen:

1 Cor 14:18 Paul said, ”I thank my God I speak with tongues more than you all.” I thank God for this gift also. Paul is putting a big endorsement here on tongues, and so does Jesus. Mark 16:17 Jesus said,”And these signs shall follow them that believe; in my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues.” Any person that rejects this gift would be challenging the Master himself.

The gift of tongues that operates in the church brings forth a message from the Spirit of God. It becomes prophecy when it’s interpreted; It is a very pure or a sure word of prophecy. Now, this gift is part of the nine gifts given to the church. This gift is to be used to speak to the body tongues and interpretations equal prophecies. I think this is the purest form of prophecy I have been operating in this gift for many, many years. What makes it so pure, First of all when bringing forth the message in tongues by the Holy Spirit is spontaneous flow. The interpretation is also a spontaneous flow. You don’t have time to think. You just speak what you see before you. With me it is like a ticker-tape you cannot inject one thought of your own into it; you don’t get a chance because it comes so fast you just follow the words. The interpretation may come from someone else in the church, or the one that is speaking the tongues may bring it. When you are to bring the message or the interpretation, you may feel a little pressure build up inside by the Holy Spirit; this is the signal that the Holy Spirit wants to speak through you.

I have, on several occasions, been in desperate situations. While praying in tongues, the Holy Spirit would come upon me, and kick my pray tongues into another new Holy Spirit language and the Lord would speak back to me. He would speak very clearly through my own interpretation; which then becomes a prophecy. Every time it was at a real point of need in my life, and always brought a great blessing from the Lord. Let me make this clear, I cannot do this at will, but I can always pray in tongues at will…

Interpretation: explaining in the natural, what you heard in the spirit. Interpretation of tongues is used to speak for God and to bring an understanding of something spoken by the spirit. It comes by spontaneous flow, equal to prophesy.

Can everyone speak in tongues? Probably not. I would say 90 % of the Church body that prays in tongues cannot minister this speaking gift. It would be about the same percentage that can minister the gift of healing, or prophecy or any of the other nine gifts. The speaking gift is for the church and should operate in every church.

1Cor14:26 “how is it then, brethren? When ye come together, every one of you hath a psalm, hath a doctrine, hath a tongue, hath a revelation, and Hath an interpretation. Let all things be done unto edification

This gift of speaking and praying in tongues comes with the baptism or the immersion of the Holy Spirit when He comes upon you, and only Jesus can baptize you with the Holy Spirit.

Luke3:16”John answered, saying unto them all, I indeed baptize you with water; but one mightier than I cometh, the latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy to unloose: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost and with fire.” Jesus is our Holy Spirit baptizer.

Can all pray in tongues? Jesus said that it would be a sign that follows the believer, Paul seems to think, so that is why Paul said to pray in the Spirit and pray in the understanding also. Even though you can’t speak forth with the ministry gift, Paul said different gifts of tongues, so we can all pray after receiving.

Paul said in 1 Cor. 14:14-15, “For if I pray in an unknown tongue, my spirit prays but my understanding is unfruitful; what is it then? I will do both; I will pray with the spirit, and I will pray with the understanding also. I will sing with the spirit, and I will sing with the understanding also.” Please notice this is two different things. You can even learn to sing to the Lord in your spirit. Question: Should it be for everybody? Yes, we are to pray and sing with our spirit and with our understanding. God is not a respecter of persons. God is a Spirit, and it is your spirit coming directly together with His Spirit when you pray in tongues; Paul said you are speaking mysteries unto God. 1 Cor., Paul said praying in tongues edifies you, this builds your spirit up and fills it up; who doesn’t need that!

Jude, verse: 20.”But you beloved build up yourself in your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost.” Praying in the Holy Ghost means your spirit touches his. If all could not do this, we would not be told to do so. Can you interpret your own prayer tongue? If you do not operate in the gift of interpretation like giving a message, No you cannot, That is why Paul said to pray in the Spirit and pray for the understanding also. The tongues spoken by your own spirit does not get interpreted because you are speaking mysteries unto God, mysteries are mysteries. Tongues spoken while moved upon by the Holy Spirit should always be interpreted. The person that prays in tongues will, however, have a higher realm of understanding and revelation, and he will hear from God more clearly when he follows up by praying with the prayer of understanding. I have had this happen while playing in my own prayer language the Holy Spirt would kick my tongue into a whole new language one of authority when this happens the Lord will bring forth the interpretation. Tongues is the road that takes you to the place to get your most Holy faith. No wonder Paul said, “I thank my God that I speak in tongues more than you all.”

1Cor.14:2,” For he that speaks in an unknown tongue speaks not unto men, but unto God: for no man understands him; howbeit in the spirit, he speaks mysteries.” When you are speaking to God in your prayer tongue, it is just a mystery between you and the Lord. Nothing else can be said. It gives you a hot line directly to your heavenly Father.

When you pray in tongues, it takes you into a whole new revelation and understanding of God. You could be a Bible Scholar and study the word until you know every color in Joseph’s coat, but when you begin to pray in tongues, you access a whole new realm of understanding. You completely bypass the mind realm. There is no way to doubt. Your prayers are pure and holy and not always about you, or your needs. The Holy Spirit uses your spirit and not your mind to pray.

Real power ministry operates out of the spirit, and not out of the mind. Good information that you can learn comes out of the mind. Tongues take you above the natural man when your spirit touches God’s Spirit.

I think the reason we put so much emphasis on tongues, is that everyone that we see operating in the other gifts spends a lot of time praying in tongues. I don’t think I have ever seen the other gifts used by anyone without a prayer language. I am sad to say this, but it is also the least sought after, and neglected of the gifts, as well as the least understood of all nine gifts.

My friend, praying in tongues every day is like putting money in the bank; when you need to share or minister to someone or have a cry in your heart from the Lord, you will have spiritual power and strength to draw from.

Seek the Lord for his gifts; He loves to give good gifts to them that ask Him. Read 1st Corinthians chapters 12-14, and stay there until you have a clear understanding. Now, remember, when you first start praying in tongues, you might get just a few words that sound like silly symbols, but just keep working on it, and the Holy Spirit will help you develop a beautiful prayer language. You have to do this for yourself. God does not pray for you. You may want to find someone filled with the Holy Ghost to lay hands on you and pray with you for the baptism of the Holy Spirit. Your purpose for wanting these gifts should be to draw closer to the Lord and to be a more successful witness. I notice almost everyone receives in a different way.

 The Liar

Religion

Religion article written by Dr. Bob Allen:

It looks like, for sure, all liars will go to a burning hell!

The Lie, The devil’s foundation is built on it. The devil lied to Eve in the garden and brought sin into the whole world, upon all mankind.

Lying spirit: The devil is a liar and a deceiver. He comes to take away God’s best for your life and God’s promises to you. He comes only to steal, kill, and destroy you. The Lord wants you to be free from the attack of your enemy, the devil.

  • Jesus had to die to break Satan’s power, and set man free.

If there is such a thing as the world’s worst sin, it would have to be lying.The devil’s power base for his sinful, fallen world is built on it.

  • Prov 19:22 “A poor man is better than a liar.”
  • Prov19:5 “A false witness shall not be unpunished, and he that speak lies shall not escape.”   Ops
  • Pro19:9  “He that speak lies shall perish.” (That’s scary)
  • Ps101:7 “He that works deceit shall not dwell within my house.
  • He that tells lies shall not tarry in my sight.” O, What hate God must have for the lie. Watch your tongue.

John 8:44 Jesus said; ” Ye are of your father, the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning and abode not in the truth because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks of his own: for he is a liar and the father of it.”

If you lie, you are speaking for the devil.  When you lie, Jesus says that the devil is your father.

Acts 5:3 “But Peter said, Ananias, why hath Satan filled thine heart to lie to the Holy Ghost.  Why hast thou conceived this thing in thine heart? Thou hast not lied unto men, but unto God.”

Jesus has defeated Satan. He spent a lot of time teaching us who, and what the devil is like.

Jesus has taught us that in his name, and by his power, we too can defeat him every time. Submit yourself to God resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

Just how do you think Father God feels when you neglect all of his promises, and all of his provisions for you, and lie?  The Father must weep when you reject the shed blood of his own son, who is the truth. If you leave the truth and accept the devil’s lies, that means, right now you think the devil can, and will help you, and put you over better than God can.

If you are a liar, it is because you are being influenced by the demon of insecurity, and inferiority.  You think you cannot be represented on your own merits, so you borrow the devil’s power, which is always deception. You depend on the lie, not realizing you are calling on the wrong father, the Devil to prop you up.

When he speaks a lie, he speaks of his own: for he is a liar and the father of it.  If you use a lie, to manipulate someone to accomplish your will or purpose, you have just used the doctrine of the devil and showed no faith in God. That makes the devil your father. If you are the head of your house, and you are a liar, you will have a cursed house, and it will run through your family line until you repent.  You have given the devil a seat at your table.  Who’s your daddy?

Let’s look at where the lie will put you in the end.

Rev 21:27”And there shall in no wise enter into heaven anything that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, nor maketh a lie.” Watch what comes out of your mouth.

Rev 21:8  “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone.”

Rev22:14” Blessed are they that do his commandments that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.15 For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.”

My friend if you are a liar you can’t go anywhere, but to hell. Notice the word says you are the same as a murderer.

Lying is something not to be taken lightly, yet many people are chronic liars. If you have a family member that is a liar, I think he is in danger of a burning hell. Go to him help him.

The jailer said to Paul Sir, what must I do to be saved? Paul said, “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shall be saved”. Just believe and ask.

Both insecurity and inferiority can cause conflict in the mind. Your mind truly wants to do what is right, but there is that old life of sin or bad judgment calls that are always there. They sit there. They are caused by the decisions you have already made, and this is where the accuser of the brother comes in.  He can put one side of the mind in conflict against the other. (the new you and the old you)Migraine headaches, worry, and fear, can come out of this.  It can come from past relationships, failures and families issues.

Drug habits:  a masterpiece of the devil. Druggies are slaves. Your children will rob your money, hurt you and your family to support a drug habit.  Satan drives them. They are good people, just deceived. The cost is very great. The young men who went off to war, in World War 11,  came back and really made America great. Well, many, many mother’s sons in this same age group are in prison and jails all across America today. There are two million, two hundred and twenty-three thousand adults incarcerated at this time, in our nation, and most have drug related problems.

Let me just take a moment here to share something with you. Have you noticed law enforcement has been fighting this drug problem and have spent billions on it for over forty years? Today any kid can buy drugs anytime he wants; it is just as if the law did not exist.  Law enforcement has lost the battle. The Lord showed me that it is a spiritual problem and one of the greatest weapons the devil has ever had to destroy families and to destroy lives. Drug addiction has to be defeated with spiritual power. Wake up sleepy Church and get to work.

Feedback would be appreciated.

Practical Faith    

Religion

Religion Column written by Dr. Bob Allen: 

Today, I want to talk to you about your faith, but I don’t want to do just another faith teaching that won’t  work for you any better than the last one you heard. I want to help you to power up the faith you have. Faith works by love, so then, love will be your power source to walk by faith. You can measure your faith in the Lord by your love for Him. Faith is reaching out with love, and appropriating what has already been spoken and offered to you.

Rom.12:3, Paul said,” For I say, through the grace given unto me to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, as God hath given to every man the measure of faith.” The Father jump starts all of us in our faith walk. We increase it by learning to listen to His Word, knowing His will, and learning His way.

Gal.3:22 The Apostle Paul said, “The scripture hath concluded all under sin, that the promise by faith [of] Jesus Christ might be given to them that believe.”

Paul also said,” I walk by the faith of Christ Jesus.” Faith is not something you get, but something you have when you receive and believe Christ Jesus.  We must learn to receive and live by His faithfulness.

I want you to take a look at Gal.1:3-4.  Paul said,” Grace be to you and peace from God the Father and our Lord Jesus Christ who gave Himself for our sins that He might deliver us from this present evil world; according to the will of God and our Father.” We must change worlds. You have to walk out of this evil world and put no faith in it at all but keep your heart set on the Faithful One, Christ Jesus, and His Kingdom.

Gal. 2:20, Paul said,” I am crucified with Christ. Nevertheless, I live; yet not I but Christ lives in me and the life that I now live in the flesh I live by the faith [of] the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.” When you believe and trust everything Jesus said and did, and can believe Him for His future promises; you will be full of faith. (although you’re standing in the midst of an evil world)

Rom.10:17, Paul said,” So  then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” You can add to your faith by taking in more of the Word of God. Our big challenge is understanding how faith works and when we allow the Holy Spirit to work in us.

Heb.11:1,” Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” We must work the substance and believe the evidence of something we cannot see. Faith believes what cannot be tasted, touched, seen, heard or smelled.

Faith is a place between A-men, and there it is. I prayed. I believed. I have it.

Faith is what you hold on to until the thing you are praying for comes into your hand.

1 John5:4, “For whatsoever is born of God overcomes the world, and this is the victory that overcomes the world, even our faith.” Faith is Big, Big, Big.

How do you use faith?  Faith does not come from or operate out of the natural realm.

Your spirit touches things of the Spirit. By faith, your spirit touches the supernatural realm.

Your soul, which is your mind, will, and emotion touches the sense realm: reason, thought, feelings, and desires.

Your body touches the five senses: touch, smell, hear, feel, and taste.

The natural man says,” if I see, it I will believe it”. The spiritual man says,” If I believe it, I will see it.” Jesus said, My Word is Spirit, and it is Life. Do you have the Life of the Spirit working In you?

Remember Peter. He was taught perfectly by the Master. He knew everything about Jesus, but when his faith was tested, he failed the test. He said, “I don’t know the man.”  After he walked on water with Jesus, and after twice working with Jesus in feeding multitudes with a few fish and bread, the #1 Jesus school graduate had little faith in the man. Christ Jesus.

When Jesus appeared to His disciples in Galilee, after his resurrection, Matt28:17 says the eleven worshiped, but some doubted. That alone shows you that faith doesn’t come easily. Even the men that were with the Master all the time showed little faith. Jesus said, my Word is Spirit, and it is Life. Faith then comes by hearing His Word.  After Peter was filled and baptized with the Holy Spirit, he was able to tell the lame man,” in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth what I have, give I you, rise and walk.”

Rom.1:11, Paul said, “For I long to see you that I may impart unto you some spiritual gifts to the end you may be established.” This is big because spiritual gifts do not operate out of the natural man.They operate by faith out of the spirit. The natural man’s faith is only in what he can see or control. You have to step out of the natural man into the spirit realm and establish yourself in the spirit to move by faith.

When it comes to the things of God, you can‘t have it unless you can get it by faith.  Without faith, it is impossible to please God. I believe this tells us the more faith we have, the more we can please Him. Tell me, is anything greater than pleasing our wonderful Father?

My friend, if you are trying to walk by faith based on what you have learned without first getting the word down deep in your spirit, you will lose every time!  After you are saved and become a child of God, you must learn to live by faith. The Lord seldom, if ever, responds to pain, suffering, or sorrow. God responds to faith.

 

Prov.20:27, “The spirit of the man is the candle of the Lord.” God sees what is in your spirit, and he measures your faith from there. How do you think you look? What condition is your spirit? Are you praying every day in the spirit? If so, you should have your spirit built up until you can believe His word. True faith moves the Lord’s, heart. Little faith grieves him.

Gal.5:6,” Faith works by love.” God lavished his love upon you when He took you into His family. He washes your hurting, ugly, sinful life away, and promises you a future and a hope, and a love that lasts forever. My friend, this should make your faith rise and work for you.

Luke 22:31, “Simon, Satan has desired to have you that he may, sift you like wheat, but I have prayed for you that your faith fails not.” Prayer is the bridge that faith travels over. It is not unusual to doubt your faith, but those who move the kingdom forward, never doubt The Master. You must have faith in all that He says.

Study and learn God’s word. If the Word is not understood, the enemy gobbles it up. We need faith to trust God in everything we do.  Not just faith in Him, but confident in our position in Him. In other words, we need to be filled with His love and walk in His ways.  We can operate the things of God in our lives by our faith in Him. Again, you will never walk in more faith than you can believe.

You cannot withhold anything from God and still have faith in His promises. You will not speak for Him with authority. You must live a pure life through Him, My friend; we have an anchor and someone to hold on to forever: The Man, Christ Jesus.  

Matt. 9:29 Jesus said, “According to your faith let it be done unto you.“

Eph. 6:16 Paul said,” Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith you shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one.” I assure you the darts will come. So Faith up.

Please remember faith works by love: little love, little faith. We must learn to love in order to walk in great faith that pleases the Lord.

Gal.3:11, “The just shall live by faith.”

Rom.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.” You are made right, put right, justified. That makes You a just person!  Now you can live by faith.  Jesus said,” I am the light of the world.”  Before He left, He said you are the light of the world. Throw your light out there, let it shine. Jesus said,” Let your light so shine before men that they may see your good works and glorify your Father who is in heaven.”. Matthew 5:16r. Bob Allen

War and Peace

Religion

Religion article written by Dr. Bob Allen:

Our power for war is prayer. Our weapon is our voice when we speak His word in faith by the Holy Spirit.

I am very concerned about our great nation, America.  Every Christian I know has the same concerns. It is as though I have lived in two different Americas. America then, and America now. Some are saying God is judging our nation, but I don’t think so.

John12:47 Jesus said, “I came not to judge the world, but to save it; the words that I speak unto you the same shall judge you in the last day.” I think we are living in a period of grace. I feel nothing but blessed! I thank God that He is not judging us at this time.  I do think that He would find it hard to bless this nation at this time. I think we are practicing self-rule, and bringing disasters upon ourselves. We are rejecting the ways of the Lord.

2Tim 3:13 The Bible says, “Evil men will wax worse and worse.”  I do not think this is the hand of a loving, kind God against us, but are we letting the world get bigger and more powerful than the church? It looks like a picture rather of the wheat and tares growing together as Jesus said. Sometimes I think the tares are flourishing, and growing more than the wheat. Some people might feel that the “silent church” needs a wake-up call. I believe we have been on a course of self-destruction for many, many years. I remember when it all began to fall apart. One thing they used to say is, “take prayer out of school and watch and see what happens.” I am watching, and I see what happened. We don’t need to be judged by God; we have made our judgment calls. We have brought our problems on ourselves, and it has brought disaster.

Ten years from now, a young person will hardly know the difference between a man and woman.  Gays will be elected to many high offices. They will be running our schools and many of our churches. Low morality, as we know now, will plummet even deeper. Our population base that supports and depends on the nation through reproduction will dwindle down. I believe we will have to import more people to work to maintain our tax base.

Have you noticed when you make a phone call that you hear, “for English press one?”What has America moved? Adios America!

Instead of judging us, God is probably feeling sorry for us, and saying something like, what foolish people; don’t they remember the days of Sodom and Gomorra?

With the Supreme Court’s recent decisions, I think that many are trying to make America a godless nation.

I know that we, the people of God, have done our best to send good people to Washington.  We have also sent our tax money. Our elected officials have failed us by letting this country get in the shape that it’s in. I believe they have failed in almost every area. We now have forty-seven million people feeding off the taxpayers’ money every month. Not many years ago we had twenty-five people paying in for every one receiving. Now it is down to three paying in per person. How long, O Lord, can it last? I never talk about these things, because I hate to do it, but I am a part of The Church, and it is my responsibility.

Let me show you one way that I think our Presidents, our senators, and members of Congress have failed us in the last forty years:  At one time China was a very poor, somewhat backward nation. America at that time was the world’s greatest industrial nation on the earth, leading the manufacturing base that supplied jobs, stability, retirement plans, insurance, vacations, sick leave, and the ability to buy homes. America also provided a sense of security for families, in essence, hope and future.   Manufacturing is good, and there were lots of factories in every state. This built confidence in people by teaching them skills. It gave blue color workers a sense of worth and value. It gave America a great tax base which gave us the greatest war machine on earth.

Then came the great wealth transfer. Now probably seventy-five percent of things in your house come from China. Most of our factories are there, as well as, our money. We are now being hijacked with higher prices for their goods.  Now America borrows money from them to run our country. China is makings lots of investments in our country; they now own Volvo, as well as Smithfield Foods and so on. China is buying our country up with our money. (Vote Smart)

China, as of last year, became a wealthier nation than America. They have a greater military machine and a far more disciplined and larger army than ours built with the American dollar.  We recently announced that we are laying off forty thousand soldiers. In America, the upper-income man is doing well. He simply buys their goods for five and sells for ten.  God bless him, but the rest are hurting.

My best thinking tells me that it would be very difficult for any leader to retool America, and bring back our factories; if not impossible.  We would have to import workers. I don’t believe you will ever be able to take free money out of the hands of the people! JOBS to replace FREE MONEY. What? Are you kidding?

Our government says we have eleven million Spanish peoples in America with about ninety-five % or more from Mexico. I say more like twenty-five million. I say this with confidence because I was at one time working in the sheet rock business in North Carolina for my brother-in -law and when I hired a Spanish subcontractor he would always have a van full of workers. I remember we always figured about four per crew; otherwise, I hired one with paperwork and always got four or more, it is for sure there are about four for every one they have paperwork on.

Think about this, twenty-five million people and they are all working; this is America’s new labor force, and thank God for them, however, they pay very little taxes.

My wife just spent a week in the hospital in West Palm Beach.  We estimated that about seventy-five percent of all doctors, nurses, and other help were not from America. Very few of the common laborers were American. They did seem to be good at their jobs, and by the way, this is South Florida, which is a big melting pot.

We are killing around 3,700 babies a day if we only kill five days a week that is right at a million a year.  58,500,000 since 1973. Think about that fifty-eight and a half million. There must be many doctors, nurses, laborers, teachers even preachers killed.  (I googled these numbers).

I have already picked my candidate for president, and I hope you will join me. I think I have already learned my lesson. I am watching for the man that I think has the best prayer life, and that spends the most time in the Word of God. I want the man that I believe can touch the heart of God. We remember what God said to Abraham about Sodom: Ten righteous men could have saved Sodom. Maybe we can start a prayer revival and help put God’s man in the White House, and play some part in rescuing our country. If we are born again, we are Father God’s righteous sons and daughters. We are made right. We are put right through the blood of our wonderful, precious Savior, Christ Jesus.

2Chr7:14  “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”

Mal3:6 “For I am the Lord, I change not”. He’ll do it.

If my friend, we elect a man who will go to the White House, and fall on his face before the world, and lift his hands to heaven and call upon the name of the LORD as well as call the nation to repentance, God can and will turn this nation around.

I don’t think any smart man can save and restore America. I have voted for smart men for years. It makes me think; maybe I’m not all that smart. From now on, I am looking and praying for God’s person. I hope you feel the same way. I still have great hope for the future of America, but it is in the hands of Almighty God.  We must pray for our country!!!

A Word of Comfort for You Today

Religion

Religion article written by Dr. Bob Allen:

First of all, the Holy Spirit comes to comfort you by keeping Jesus lifted up before you at all times.

Let’s consider the work of the Holy Spirit today. Learn how He works, and He will work with you, and for you. Notice how He worked in the life of Jesus, and His Disciples.

First, I have noticed two distinct kinds of Christians during my walk with the Lord. The first one I call good, religious Christians. They are faithful to whatever doctrine their church teaches.  They are born again. That means their spirit which was dead unto God from the fall of Adam is now alive. Their new, living spirit is then sealed by the Holy Spirit of God, for God.

The second one is born again, but this person sees more potential in the Holy Spirit by watching Him empower the Apostles for their ministry. This person then seeks and receives a greater measure in the Holy Spirit which is an impartation of His abiding presence, His gifts, and His power.  When you are filled with Holy Spirit, the Word and the desire for the Word comes alive, and you become much more affected by the work and the witness of the Lord. The Holy Spirit’s work can best be seen by the disciples in Acts chapters 8 and 19. Read also, 1st Corinthians 12-14 about His gifts.

How well do you know the Holy Spirit? This reveals how well you know Jesus because He takes the things of Jesus and shows them unto us. He can reveal much more of Jesus to you than you can otherwise learn. Have you received the fullness of the Holy Spirit? Did you know He is the Spirit of the Father here on earth for you?

Luke1:35And the angel answered and said to her,(Mary) The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Highest will overshadow you; therefore, also, that Holy One who is to be born will be called the Son of God.”That makes Jesus fathered by the Holy Spirit, which is God.

Luke3:21-22 “Now when all the people were baptized, it came to pass, that Jesus also being baptized, and praying, the heaven was opened,  and the Holy Ghost descended in a bodily shape like a dove upon Him, and a voice came from heaven, which said, “Thou art My beloved Son; in Thee, I am well pleased.” The Spirit is a Person of God. The Father’s power. God down here. God now, and or God with us.

Look at this, The Holy Spirit first came upon John the Baptist while he was in his mother, Elizabeth’s womb to announce the coming of Jesus. Then He came upon Jesus to empower Him.

Luke4:14 “And Jesus being full of the Holy Ghost returned from Jordan and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness.” Here Jesus is a sinless man with perfect cleansing blood in Him and all of the Spirit’s power of the Father in and upon Him. Jesus is being sent to beat the devil as a man, to judge him as nothing but a liar, and to take back God’s power over fallen man.

Acts10:38: ”Peter said how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him.” If Jesus needed to be anointed by the Holy Spirit, how much more do we, the Church?

That same Holy Spirit that followed Jesus is now following you.  He will keep you on the path of righteousness.  The Father sent Him in Jesus’ name. Work with Him.

Earth, Hear the Word of the Lord

Religion

Religion article written by Dr. Bob Allen:

Father God wants you to understand and believe, above all things, His perfect love for you, and to understand the price He paid for you. This love never runs out, but goes beyond all knowledge, and all understanding. This Love is for you today; this love is yours.

I want you to see how Father God had you in mind when He spoke to David about a thousand years before Jesus was ever born. Even before you were born, your sins were covered. Look what David prophesied about Jesus concerning you somewhere around 1013 BC:

Notice how the Father had the plan to redeem you from the very beginning; I believe from the very fall of Adam. If you watch God’s plan unfold step by step, line upon line, You can’t help but feel secure in His wonderful love.

Psalms 22:1-8 over a thousand years before The birth of Jesus, King David spoke, of Jesus hanging on the cross, when he said,” My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?”

David said, ”He trusted in the Lord that he would deliver him; let him deliver him seeing he delighted in him.”Somehow King David saw the suffering of the Lamb Christ Jesus. About a thousand year later, David words were confirmed when Jesus was hanging on the cross Matthew bears this witness. My God, My God why have you forsaken me.

Matt 27:43 Matthew writes what men said, “He trusted in God; let him deliver him now if he will have him, for he said, I am the Son of God.” You can put your trust in The God that knows the end from the beginning, and holds your life, your very breath in His hands.

About 550 years before Jesus was born the prophet Isaiah said,

Isaiah 9:6 “ For unto us a child is born. Unto us, a Son is given. And the government shall be upon His shoulder. His name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.”

The Child born is the perfect Lamb whose blood would wash our sins away and whose body would carry our sins to the grave to be buried in the grave of forgetfulness forever.

The Son given is the Lord from heaven. The Word said the Holy Ghost came upon Mary, and she brought forth the man Child Jesus. The Spirit of The Mighty God, the Everlasting Father the Wonderful Counselor, the Prince of Peace dwelling in the man, Christ Jesus.

Isaiah53:10-12( Isaiah had prophesied these words many years before Jesus was born.) “Yet it pleased the Lord to bruise Him; He has put Him to grief.

“When You make His soul an offering for sin, He shall see His seed, He shall prolong His days, And the pleasure of the Lord shall prosper in His hand.”

11 “He shall see the labor of His soul, and be satisfied. By His knowledge, My righteous Servant shall justify many, For He shall bear their iniquities.”

12 ”Therefore I will divide Him a portion with the great, And He shall divide the spoil with the strong, Because He poured out His soul unto death, And He was numbered with the transgressors, And He bore the sin of many”.
Many- Only those who will believe. That would be you and me.

What a story! Father God satisfied the wages of sin with the life of his own Son for you and me.

Luke 18:32 “For he shall be delivered unto the Gentiles, and shall be mocked, and spitefully entreated and spat upon.”

33 “And they shall scourge him, and put him to death and the third day he shall rise again.”

Have you noticed everything written about Jesus in the Word comes to pass? Every warning about your sins will come to pass, and a payday will surely come. Make sure your life is cleaned up. Stay out of sin.

Psalms 12:6 “The words of the Lord are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.” To me, they say repent, and that you are loved. You are loved. You are loved.

Jeremiah 22:29 “O earth, earth, earth, hear the word of the Lord”. His words are so pure and just and right. They say you are safe, and that you have a sure place and a sure foundation in Him. He is your Heavenly Father.

If you think Jesus died so that you would not have to go to hell, well maybe, but look again. Jesus said in John 17:2-3, that He died that we might know the only true God and Me, His Son. Father God wants you to know Him. You are God’s son or His daughter, and He is your Heavenly Father. He is your Maker, your Creator. You were always on His mind from the very beginning. Father God wants you with Him someday, but in his kingdom now, today.

Jesus bleed, and suffered and paid the price for men’s souls. He alone has all power to save the man. Truly God’s love is all about you.

John 14:6 Jesus said, ”No man can come to the Father except by me.” Our Lord Jesus hung on that bloody tree, to suffer and bleed to cleanse all mankind from sin. Jesus showed us how much Father God loved us.

John3:16-18 “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

17 “For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved”.

18 ”He that believeth on Him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.” Are you secure in the Lord? Are you going to be ok with God? Are you sure you’re going to heaven when you die?

John 3:36 “He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abides on him.” Are your loved ones safe?

John 3:3 “Jesus answered and said unto him, (Nicodemus)Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”

Pray Jesus comes into my heart and washes my sins away.

The Wicked One Part 3

Religion

Relion article written by Dr. Bob Allen

Jesus told us in the sixteenth chapter of Mark to heal the sick and cast out devils. But first, you will have to know who you are in Christ Jesus and your place of authority in him. Beware of the devil. He will try to rob you of your standing in Christ and your authority. He is a supernatural, spiritual evil over his wicked kingdom. We are of the kingdom of God, and we have security.

Now remember Satan is no match for you if you are a child of God. We overcome him by the blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony. (Revelation 12:11)
1John 3:8 Jesus said, “For this purpose, the Son of God was manifested that He might destroy the works of the devil.” Are you still in the battle? If so, get out of the ring. You’re a winner. He is the god of the fallen world and not the god of your world if you are in the Kingdom of God. Jesus gave us the victory.
The Father has delivered us from the power of darkness and has translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son. He has picked us up and set us somewhere else. You are safe.
Luke 10:19 Jesus said,” I give you power over all the power of the enemy. The enemy has power, but you can stop his power, and you can beat him. God’s spirit in you is greater.
One of the greatest weapons of the devil is the power of lies. He is a liar and the father of it. The Lie, The devil’s foundation is built on it. The devil lied to Eve in the Garden of Eden. She believed the lie and brought sin into the whole world and upon all mankind. The devil is a liar and a deceiver. He comes to take away God’s best for your life and God’s promises to you. If you are caught up in a sinful lifestyle, you are helping him out.
Liars give the devil the right to bring everything evil into the family. The devil is the father of the lie. Jesus said of Satan he is a liar and the father of it. The Lord wants you to be free from the attack of your enemy, the devil. If you lie, you are speaking for the devil. He is helping you with your words. When you lie; Jesus says that the devil is your father. How do you think Father God feels when you neglect all of His promises and all of His provisions for you? The Father must weep when you reject the shed blood of His own Son, who is the Truth. Don’t leave the truth and believe the devil’s lies thinking that he will help you. He won’t. He has come to kill, steal and destroy.
When Satan speaks a lie, he speaks of his own: for he is a liar and the father of it. If you use a lie, to manipulate someone to accomplish your will or purpose, you have just used the doctrine of the devil and showed no faith in God. That makes the devil your father. If you are the head of your house, and you are a liar, you will have a cursed house, and it will run through your family line until you repent. You have given the devil a seat at your table. Who’s your daddy?
John 8:44 Jesus said;” Ye are of your father, the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning and abode not in the truth because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks of his own: for he is a liar and the father of it.”
O, what hate God must have for the lie. Watch your tongue. Let’s take a look at where the lie will put you in the end.
Rev 21:8 “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone.”
Rev 21:27”: And there shall in no wise enter into heaven anything that defiles, neither whatsoever work abomination, nor makes a lie.” Watch what comes out of your mouth.
Prov19:22 “A poor man is better than a liar.”
Prov19:5 “A false witness shall not be unpunished, and he that speaks lies shall not escape.” Ops
Pro19:9 “He that speaks lies shall perish.” (That’s scary)
Ps101:7 “He that works deceit shall not dwell within my house.” Liars wake up. DON’T BURN IN HELL!!!
Luke 9:1” Then He called His twelve disciples together, and gave them power and authority over all devils and to cure diseases.” He has now passed that authority on to us.
The Lord told Moses He would visit the iniquity of the fathers upon the children through the 3rd and 4th generation. Are you doing things you hate, but can’t stop and don’t understand why? If you are a Christian, you can break these curses over yourself or others, in the name of Jesus! Go to God with the problem. Acknowledge the problem and then take authority over it and place it under the blood of Jesus. Then walk away and leave it there.
You say, Bob, what can I do? I see some of this in my life, in my own family. You may very well have a generational curse from your family. You could be under a curse for the sins of your forefathers. Activate God’s power, and deal with it. Make sure you stop lying. Is your son or daughter a liar just like you, dad?
Luke22:33 “Then, entered Satan into Judas, surnamed Iscariot, being of the number of the twelve”.
Watch now how Satan took his seat at the Last Supper with Jesus and the twelve disciples. After Satan had entered Judas at the Lord’s table, he got up and left the room with the devil still in him.
John13:29 “ For some of them thought, because Judas had the bag, that Jesus had said unto him, buy those things that we have need of against the feast; or, that he should give something to the poor”. Judas looked like a man going to buy a loaf of bread, yet the devil was in him. He fooled all of the apostles.
Luke22:48 “Jesus said unto him, Judas, betray thou the Son of man with a kiss?” When they arrested Jesus, Judas kissed him with the devil still in him. Yuk, twice!

Satan is called the prince of this world, but Remember; he is not your prince if you belong to God.

The Doctrine of Demons

The Wicked One- Part 2

I want to continue where we left off at our last teaching. I am trying to warn as many people as will listen about the attacks of the wicked one, the devil. He needs to be exposed. First, I want to tell you how much God loves you today and how He wants to take care of you; to give you a sure, secure future and a hope. I just want to remind you of the price He paid for you. He gave His Son, Christ Jesus to be crucified and shed His precious blood. You are valuable.  You are loved.

Love in our society has not been truly understood, but it is the most powerful weapon God has given us. Love makes no sense to the enemy. He cannot fight against it because he simply does not understand it. He cannot in any way understand God’s love for mankind nor can he fathom God’s love flowing through us to one another. He can’t comprehend unconditional love and has no come answer for it, so he runs from you.

We have a choice. We can feed the negative things of the enemy, or we can feed the positive things of the Lord Jesus. The more you feed the negative, the more the enemy feeds off of It and feeds on you. Demonic spirits are sent to feed off your negativity and to turn friends and loved ones away from you and against each other. The more you feed the demons, the more they devour, and the stronger they become.  Be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.

The Lord has taken me behind the scene to show me the demonic world, and how Satan’s kingdom works. It is all powered by lies. He is the father of lies.  You will not see him this way. He will always try to market himself to you as an angel of light.  I have been called to warn you, and to point you to the Scripture which is full of his work as well as instruction on how you are to deal with him.

My third visit from the devil occurred in a motel room.

I decided to go to a motel for three days of fasting and prayer for my marriage and understanding, in general. I was desperate at this time for direction. I had just gotten saved, and I knew nothing about God.  I had never been in a church, except for one time with my Mom and Dad. I was ignorant when it came to the things of the Lord. A calling from God was the furthest thing from my mind. I was having tremendous visits from the Lord, and my Pastor did not believe that such experiences could happen.  I thought my Pastor knew everything.  When he couldn’t help me, I was devastated. Since he didn’t believe me, my wife didn’t either. I remember, at the motel, just beginning to pray and seek the Lord. The devil begins to talk to me in what seemed to be an audible voice. All of this time, I thought

I was talking to Jesus, and this lasted several hours. I was asking questions, and he was answering me. I could hear him perfectly with my mind, but to this day, I don’t know how. It was as though I was carrying on a conversation with you, the reader.  As the day went on, I ask a lot of questions. I was still a heavy smoker, and that bothered me, but I was hooked. I said, what about these cigarettes I have asked you many times to help me quit, but you never have. He said, “don’t worry about the cigarettes I will take care of that.” I thought that’s a relief. Then I ask him about my pastor. I said he doesn’t believe me when I tell him that I have heard from You? (remember, I thought I was talking with the Lord Jesus) He said don’t worry about Norman Mitchell I will deal with him. Did you notice I called him pastor, but the demon called him by name? I said, well what about my marriage? I don’t know what to do, and I have been asking you every day for help. I remember all of his answers seemed to go in circles. I finally caught him in a lie. I knew everything about the devil, which I would ever need to know for the rest of my life. He is a liar and the father of lies. He is nothing but a liar, just like Jesus said he was. I was so angry I could taste it, and if you think I lost it, you would be correct. I remember shaking my fist at him saying you are a lying, son-of-a-b—-. You come back here right now; I want to deal with you. I had honored him, worshiped him, and even called him Lord all day.  I would never fear him again for the rest of my life. I don’t mean to say that he has not tried for years to side track my life, to kill me, or hurt me any way he could.

We must deal with demons from a place of authority. You don’t want to be worried about getting rid of the devil; you want him to worry about how to get rid of you.

James 4:7 “Submit: yourself therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you”. Don’t be the devil’s prey. Stay submitted to God.  Make use of the Sword of the Spirit. Most demons have never been challenged by a Christian; so know who you are and that you are a winner.  Satan will push you. He will try you. Listen to the challenge Paul had in

1Thess2:18Wherefore we would have come unto you, even I Paul, once and again; but Satan hindered us.”  He can surely hinder you.

Paul was concerned about his church in Thessalonica. He thought the devil might have already gotten into it. Is anybody concerned about the devil in your church like Paul was his church in Thessalonica? 1Thess 3:5  “For this cause, when I could no longer forbear, I sent to know your faith, lest by some means the tempter have tempted you, and our labor is in vain.” We must stay alert at all times.

Paul also had a “thorn in the flesh, a messenger of Satan to buffet him”(2 Cor.12:7) In other words, a demon spirit from the devil to harass him. When Paul sought the Lord for help, and The Lord told him, “My grace is sufficient for you.” In other words, “Paul, you deal with it”.

2Cor 11:14-15 Paul said, “Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness whose end shall be according to their works.”  Don’t let him push you. Could he be hanging around your Church?

1Pet 5:8 Peter said, “Be sober, be vigilant because your adversary the devil as a roaring lion walks about seeking whom he may devour.” Are you weak?

Luke 8:12 in the parable of the sower, Jesus said: “the seed is the word of God.” My friend if you let the word fall by the wayside the devil will come and grab it.  If God’s Word is not rooted deeply in your heart and you leave unprotected the devil will gobble it up! He will steal it right out of your heart.

I think Jesus preached about thirty-three sermons about the devil. It doesn’t take long to figure out why.

Luke22:31 and the Lord said, “Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat.”

Watch for the next picture of the devil in part three.

 

Are You a Righteous Person?

Religion

Religion column written by Dr. Bob Allen:

You can, and should be. Righteousness means having the ability to stand in the presence of Father God without the sense of guilt or inferiority.

May I ask you if you are there yet? Can you do that? I hope so.

1st Cor. 6:9 says, “Know you not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God.” Listen to me! Don’t be deceived!

A righteous person is one who is living his life through the Son of God and has walked out of his old lifestyle in the old world into the new kingdom of God. He has changed worlds. My friend, you get into the new kingdom by being washed in the blood of the Lamb, Christ Jesus. He alone is righteous and the maker of your righteousness. Where does your family stand?

You might be thinking, Bob, no one can really be that righteous. O yes you can because of a loving, kind, and good Father. Our Father God draws you to His precious Son Christ Jesus, who washes you in His own blood: The blood that makes you whiter than snow. All you need to do, my friend, is to believe it, step into it and then step out and live it.

Listen, the desire to get rid of sin consciousness has given birth to all the religions of the world. God, Satan, and sin are still here. But God has made provision for making a new you. He has planned to impart His nature to you, taking out the old sin nature and replacing it with His nature.
2Cor.5:21.”For he hath made Him to be sin for us, who knew no sin that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.” This should destroy your sin consciousness.

Rom 6:23 says, “The wages of sin is death.” Death had to be killed that we might be made the righteousness of God, in him. My friend, your sin is dead unto the Lord. Look at the price paid for you. It makes you feel like you truly are somebody, doesn’t it?

1Pet 3:18 “For Christ has once suffered for sin, the just for the unjust.( or the righteous for the unrighteous ) that He might bring us to God, being put to death (killed) in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit.” He covered you. He made the new you.

1Pet. 2:24 { Christ Jesus} “Who His own self-bare our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness.” Look, if you have not come to Jesus with your sins, then hell will be your final home! Listen, my friend, repent today. Can you see your sins in his body hanging on a bloody tree? My friend, its time to walk away from all sin.

The sense of unworthiness destroys faith and robs us of our peace of mind. Only Jesus can replace unworthiness. Are you washed in the blood? Have you tasted his wonderful love? My friend, love is our sin cover.

Heb 9:26 “Now once at the end of the age has He been manifested to put away sin by the sacrifice of Himself.” In the garden, Adam had perfect fellowship with God before the devil deceived him. Now, that lost righteousness has been restored to us, the believer, through the shed blood of the Lord Jesus Christ. He broke sin’s power for the believer.

Living a righteous life unto the Lord brings peace, brings rest, brings joy, and better health. It gives you a sense of well-being. It brings blessings and prosperity to every area of your life through the presence of the Holy Spirit that is dwelling in you.

The righteousness of Christ Jesus is to and for all men who will believe. Never again should you see yourself as “a poor sinner” if you are born again? Don’t look at yourself as a failure and sin- ruled. Why not? Because the Father Himself planned the redemption and brought it about through His precious Son, Christ Jesus. He has set His seal upon the redemptive work of Jesus making the believer righteous.

1Pet.4:1 Peter said, ”Forasmuch then as Christ hath suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourself likewise with the same mind like his; that you no longer should live the rest of your time in the flesh to the lusts of men, but to the will of God.”

1Pet5:8, “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil as a roaring lion, walks about seeking whom he may devour”. That is you, and that is true. The devil hates righteousness. He wants to keep you living on Wrong Street. If the devil can make you feel unrighteous, then he can influence your thinking, which will affect your decisions.

1Pet5:10, ”But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto His eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, establish, strengthen, settle you as righteous.” The big question is how do I get there? Acts 16:31 “Believe on the Lord, Jesus Christ and you will be saved”.

I Saw the Straight Gate

Religion

Religion column written by Dr. Bob Allen:

Most recently while just standing up from my couch in the middle of the afternoon; I had a quick vision of the Lord Jesus. I did not see a full face of Him, but I did see the whole person. I came up behind him. Jesus was wearing a purple robe probably like the one He wore at His crucifixion. He was on the inside of a fenced yard looking straight ahead with His left hand on the gate as if He were pulling the gate toward Himself. It looked as though He was beginning to close it. The gate was maybe 20% closed and above His head were two words written in very large, bold letters STRIGHT GATE.

He did not say a word to me, but I sensed He was saying, “Time is winding down Bob. Now is the time to move in the day of my power. Work while you have the light; while the gate is still open and the fields are ready for harvest Luke 13:24, Jesus said,” Strive to enter in at the strait gate; for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able.” Don’t take your eyes off of the narrow path that leads to the straight gate.

I felt the Lord pointing me to Syria. While Paul was on the way to Damascus, Syria; The Lord Jesus told him to turn men from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to God. Damascus is now in deep darkness. The Lord Jesus called the Apostle Paul on the way to Damascus. Paul was baptized in the Holy Spirit in Damascus, by the laying on of the hands of Ananias, a Syrian. It seems Paul may have lived, learned, and taught out of Antioch, Syria for maybe 14 years (Gal 1:21-2:1).

Jesus’ followers were first called Christians in Antioch, Syria. There is also an Antioch in Turkey, but the Christian Church was born in Syria. The New Testament prophets worked out of Syria. Acts11:27 “And in these days came prophets from Jerusalem unto Antioch.Acts13:1-3 “Now there were in the church that was at Antioch certain prophets and teachers; Barnabas, and Simeon who was called Niger, and Lucius of Cyrene, and Manaen, which had been brought up with Herod, the tetrarch, and Saul.” “As they ministered to the Lord and fasted, the Holy Ghost said, Separate me Barnabas and Saul for the work whereunto I have called them.”

“And when they had fasted and prayed and laid their hands on them, they sent them away.” The Apostle Paul’s ministry was birthed out of Syria.
Matt 4:23-24 “And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all kinds of sickness and all kinds of disease among the people. Then His fame went throughout all Syria, and they brought to Him all sick people who were afflicted with various diseases and torments, and those who were demon-possessed, epileptics, and paralytics; and He healed them.”

As of today, there are six countries bombing that small country of Syria: 250 thousand people killed, and about four million have fled that small nation. It is a sad sight. You have to wonder if it will ever be put back together, and also about the future of those you see fleeing for their lives. How many of these are “closet Christians” because of fear for their lives?

I look at this great nation of Syria where the very name Christian came from, and I hear the Lord saying, “We are entering into the greatest revival of all times, and I’m sending My people a refresh signal. Get back on the platform that I have built. Remember My words. There is no more time to be lukewarm. Don’t be a bad taste in My mouth. It is time to get hot for Me and My kingdom. Remember Syria.”

Acts15:40-41 “And Paul chose Silas, and departed, being recommended by the brethren unto the grace of God. And he went through Syria and Cilicia, confirming the churches.” We need to make sure our churches are solidly confirmed and in the will of God.

John wrote to the seven churches approximately 70-90 AD. By then, these churches were already in trouble. Jesus said in Revelation 2:4-5a “Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou has left thy first love.” “Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen and repent.” Today all of those seven Churches have golden domes sitting on them; they belong to Allah.

Mark16:15 ”Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature”. Keep on going. Keep pushing forward. Keep feeding His lambs.
Luke19:10” For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost.” Keep bringing in the lost.

1John3:8 “For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil.” Make sure you keep both feet on the solid foundation. We need to regroup and do His first work. Learn how to destroy the devil’s work. Wake up America. We are falling off of the chain.

A Word of Comfort for Today     

Religion

Religion article by Dr. Bob Allen:

John 3:16  “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” That’s you, my friend. He is talking about you. He sent His Son for you. Friend, you are the highest order of the creation of God.

Luke 19:10 “The Son of Man came to seek and to save that which was lost.” That would be you, your family, your friend, and everyone you meet. Father God sent His Son, Christ Jesus to look for you and to save you. He cares about you. Are you in church? You need to be around The Kingdom of God People to become all that the Father wants you to be.

John 16:7  Jesus said, Nevertheless, I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you, but if I depart I will send Him unto you.”

He said, “I will not leave you comfortless, I will come to you.” He will take care of you.

The question is, are you reaping the benefits of the comforter, which is the Holy Spirit?

The world can’t receive this Spirit, but you can. The world doesn’t know the Spirit, but you should.

He is not in the world, but He can be in you.

Jesus said, “The world will see Me no more.” But you can see Him. He said,  “because I live, you will live also.” You can have a new life through Jesus. A new Spirit life. You can live in a new Spirit world. A new kingdom world.

The Holy Spirit can’t empower the fallen world, but He can empower you. My friend get to know, the Holy Spirit at all cost. Remember, Jesus said, you know Him. Well, do you?

If you are a Christian, and don’t know the Holy Spirit, or seek to know this Comforter, the one who brings comfort to you, please wake up! Get to know him. Grab hold of all that He brings to you.

 John 14:27 Jesus said, “My Peace I leave with you, My peace I give unto you: not as the world gives, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid”.

This peace does not come from the world but is brought to you by The Comforter. Peace; what a needed gift in this troubled world!

 John 16:13 Jesus said, “Howbeit when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth: for He shall not speak of Himself; but whatsoever He shall hear, that shall He speak: and He will show you things to come.”  He will tell you what Jesus is saying. He will even show you what is coming down the road for you.

Jn 14:25-27 “But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in My name, He shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.”

We can’t comprehend the value of knowing all the truth the Spirit of truth speaks to us.

Have you read all the words of Jesus? Have you listened to every word He said? If you have not heard the words of Jesus, the Holy Spirit cannot bring to mind what Jesus has said unto you through His Word.

John 16:33 Jesus said, “These things I have spoken unto you, that in Me you might have peace.  In the world you shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.”

Luke 4:18 Jesus said, “The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me because He hath anointed Me, to preach the gospel.”

Acts 10:38 Peter said, “How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power, who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with Him.” What gets done on earth is done by the Holy Spirit, even the work of Jesus.

If Jesus needed to be anointed by the Holy Spirit, how much more do we, the Church?   Notice, Jesus had just called Paul into the ministry, and he is sitting in a corner blind for three days. Jesus sent Ananias to him.  Acts 9:17, “Brother Saul, the Lord even Jesus, that appeared unto thee in the way as you came hath sent me that you might receive thy sight and be filled with the Holy Ghost.” Until Paul was filled with the Holy Ghost, he was not ready for ministry, and neither will you be. Come to Church and get the Pastor to lay hands on you for the filling of the Spirit.

Mark 16:15,”Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature”. Keep going. Keep pushing forward. Jesus told Peter to feed my sheep.Feed My lambs.

Luke 19:10 ”For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost”. Nothing has changed.

1John 3:8   “For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil.”  Stay submitted to God. James 4:7 “Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.” That tells me he fears you when you stand up to him.

Luke 10:19. “It is written I give you power over all the power of the enemy.” Don’t give him any place. Don’t even let the devil sleep under your porch.

The Power of God’s Word

Religion

Religion article written by Dr. Bob Allen:

I want to give you a word of encouragement today. Perhaps some of you are going through fiery trials even now.  Stand firm, keep trusting the Lord.

I have noticed most people I know who truly live the Christian life, and not just go to church, but have the word of God working in their lives, seem to have a noticeable peace and rest about them. I believe, and I share this from experience, that rest may well be the highest order of the blessings of God. The blessed people seem always to know in depth the word of God.  I concluded that the word of God must have strength, power, and wisdom in it.  If it were not of great value, we would not pursue it.     Let’s talk about it.

Exodus 33:13-14  Moses said to God, Now, therefore, I pray thee, if I have found grace in thy sight, show me now thy way, that I may know you, that I may find grace in thy sight, and consider that this nation is your people.” I am thinking here, did anyone ever know God like you did Moses? The guy is standing in miracles up to his knees. He had just led millions of people out of Egypt after practically destroying the country by the hand of God. Now he is saying, “I don’t really know you.”

Moses was God’s man of the month. God’s man of the hour, but he did not feel like he truly knew God.

 And God said, “My presence shall go with thee, and I will give you rest.”What a promise Father God made to Moses: I will be present with you, and you will have rest. My friend rest comes from believing the promises of God. The greatest promise God could make to Moses was to give him rest.

Listen to this wonderful promise from the Lord Jesus to us.

John 14:16-18 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you forever. Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive because it sees him not, neither knows him: but ye know him; for He dwells with you, and shall be in you.

 I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.” His spirit will always go with you, and He, The Holy Spirit, will give rest to you.

Ps 119:105  The Psalmist  said, “The word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path.” God’s word takes the load off and shows you the next step I will take that every time.

The word of God is Spirit, and it is life. I will take that kind of life. Come and let it light up your life.

John 10:27, ”My sheep hear My voice.” His word, as well as his Spirit, is His voice.

The Word will protect you. It will be your rear guard.

The Psalmist said, “Thy word have I hid in my heart that I might not sin against you.”  The word will keep you clean, and pure.

The word is what Father God desires to say to all mankind.  He knows everything and owns everything. It is His world. He inspired all the words of the Bible. It is His story.

 Jer. 15:16 ( Don’t forget what Jeremiah said) ”Thy words were found, and I did eat them, and thy word was unto me the joy and rejoicing of my heart.” Father God responds and gives rest to His children who know his word and is secure in Him as Father. Love, trust and depend on Him. 

2: Peter 1:3 the word says he has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness; through the knowledge of Him, that has called us to glory and virtue.  We get His knowledge by hearing what He has to say. It is a great thing to be able to apply His knowledge to your situation. I am trying to tell you God wants to talk to you through His word today.

The entrance of the Word brings light. Has it entered you, my friend? Is your path lit up? It should be.

How are things, how is your life? Listen as I tell you about God’s plan and see if it is working well for you. And if not, you are probably missing out on what He is saying.

If the Word has priority in your life, it will shine a light on your path. Your thinking will change for the better, and you will make better decisions and better choices in life. That will help you to prosper in every area of your life.

The Word will show your feet where to step, and it will keep you on the right path. Even a flashlight can be king in a dark room.

Have you thought of the Word as power for life? It can be. It powers my life. The Lord quickened the Word to me years ago, and I have ordered my life by it. God’s Word is the greatest treasure and the greatest value of my life. It has delivered everything that it’s promised.

Psalms 12:6, “the words of the Lord are pure words as silver tried in a furnace of earth purified seven times.” That’s big.

Think about the power of the Word. When your heart is full of the Words of God, it will overcome your old sorry, sinful life.

If you have a sin problem, the infilling of the Word in your heart will push it away. It leaves very little room for sin.

Ps 119:89, “Forever, O Lord thy word is settled in heaven”. Let’s talk about this. It is a rope you can hang on to, an anchor that will secure you and a stabilizer that will keep you in balance.

Isaiah 40:8, “The word of our God shall stand forever.”

Matt 24:35 Jesus said, “Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my word shall never pass away.” Nothing else in life is this sure.

John 14:24 “Jesus said, and the word that you hear is not mine but the Father’s which sent me.” We could say, all of the heavens back His Word.  I heard a statement from a Rabbi that goes something like this, “the words of men that represent God today have overpowered and overshadowed the Word of God.” Men are starving us out. There is a true famine of the true Word of God.

John 4:24 Jesus said, “God is a spirit.” Jesus said My Word is a Spirit, and it is Life, so the Life of God flows out of the Word of God to us.  Paul called him The Invisible God in Col 1:15

God is a Spirit, so His Spirit, His Word must touch our spirit and influence our flesh to work.  If you pick up His Words and run with them, you will score every time.

John 17:7 Jesus said,”Father I have given them the words that you gave me. I finished the work that you gave me to do”. Think about that. Jesus gave you the Words of Life, for your life.
