Hateful Christians

Galatians 6:1-2

Brethren, if a man is overtaken in any trespass, you who are spiritual restore such a one in a spirit of gentleness, considering yourself lest you also be tempted. Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.

 

Romans 12:15

Rejoice with those who rejoice, and weep with those who weep.

I find it very hard to ask for prayer. As an retired ordained womens’ minister, and also a counselor, I am usually the one doing the prayer and counseling of others. However, and I am sure this will come as no shock to most of you, I too find myself in need of prayer and counseling from time to time.

God tells us we are to bear one another’s burdens when we are asked.

What we are not to do is give the Christian who has been brave enough, and humble enough, to ask for help an egotistical “ I am perfect and you obviously are not,” reply.

A person told me once that he had gotten to the point where he felt badly about asking for prayer. He said one woman said pointedly to Him, “The Holy Spirit is your counselor!” Then another man said to Him, “Take you burdens to the Lord, son!”

We are at a time in the body of Christ when we make other Christians feel like they are out of step with God when they ask us for prayer one to one!

Saying things like the ones above just pour added guilt on a man or woman of God when asking, out of desperation, for help.

God spoke to me once about using scripture as a weapon. He said, “Don’t do that again because I know your heart, you are trying to use my Word to put that person down!”

Jesus was patient and kind with “sinners.” Yes, we can see if a person is out of Gods will, often by the way they are living. The last thing we want to do is be so rude in telling them what God says about it, in a hateful way, that the person doesn’t lovingly trust us to guide them back to Christ.

God told me to encourage people, that are out of Gods will. That way we can loving lead them back to righteousness by our love expressing the unconditional love of Christ.

When I was backslidden there was a semi-retired minister of God who I worked with. He asked me if I was living with my boyfriend at the time. I said, “Yes.” He said “ Cathie, I love you in the Lord but that’s called fornication and you folks need to get married.” He then left it alone.

Every time he would see me he would say something like, “Baby girl, God loves you!” It started wearing on my conscience because of his love and patience with me. Eventually we got married and he was the pastor that married us. Had he said, “You are a sinner living like the devil and Gods going to send you to hell,” I would have avoided him like the plague.

My point in all of this is simply this, we need to approach folks with love and kindness, meet their needs and not act like demons from hell when approached by folks.

We cannot be mean and ugly to people and expect them to see God in us. The world is full of mean, angry people that are full of judgment. We need to be merciful and lovingly help those who are hurting.

Words That Kill The Spirit

I am a senior citizen. I tell you that because I still have to give to God some of the hurtful, spiteful and frankly demonic things said to me as a child and throughout my life.

I give them to Jesus, I have forgiven those who said them, but Satan gets a lot of traffic from words. I know, if you take off your “Super Christian” hat you will admit it too. Words come back to bite at times when you are not even thinking of them. It’s Satans way of getting as much traction out of mean words as possible!

Bullies love to tear down with WORDS. People have killed themselves over mean words.

John 10:10 The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.

Being mean with words is a habit, and it’s often learned from a parent who learned it from their parent. It’s a generational curse. It’s time for those reading this with a bad habit of saying mean things to BREAK the generational curse. Stop it now by giving it to God and praying to not endulge in making yourself feel better by making others feel worse. Quit using the “I was just kidding” excuse you weren’t kidding and it’s not funny!

Ephesians 4:29

Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear.

Matthew 12:36

I tell you, on the day of judgment people will give account for every careless word they speak,

Proverbs 21:23

Whoever keeps his mouth and his tongue keeps himself out of trouble.

Proverbs 15:4

A gentle tongue is a tree of life, but perverseness in it breaks the spirit.

James 1:26

If anyone thinks he is religious and does not bridle his tongue but deceives his heart, this person’s religion is worthless.

Colossians 3:8

But now you must put them all away: anger, wrath, malice, slander, and obscene talk from your mouth.

Satan Masquerading As A Christian

I prayed about this. I wondered whether to share this or not. I slept on it, I believe God wants me to share it. I am entering deeper and some strong demons have been unleashed on me this week. I notice many of you have experienced the same.

Yesterday evening I went to check my FB account and a woman had left me a strange reply to my latest “Thus Sayeth Yeshua.”

First of all I am pretty sure most of my friends here know that style of Holy Spirit uttering. The majority of my friends are people who minister in churches or my different online ways.

Because of that they understand that God will often give me a message during one of my prayer and praise sessions.

These messages are from the Father for me and my friends. I start it on my own, Thus Sayeth Yeshua, and then I am simply a scribe for Him, as I write down what he tells me.

I had a strange feeling come over me as I got a recent friend request. I am careful and only took on the person because we had a mutual friend.

To make a long story short I had not dealt with a demonic presence like her in years.

She totally shredded me. Some of the things she said were that I am not saved, I am religious, I am sanctimonious , according to her. It went on in a psychotic rage. I knew it was a demon working through her. I was reading it all to Chuck as it was late and we were in bed. She seemed to be having an alcoholic or drug fueled breakdown. It was painful to read.

Her FB page looks contrived. I did a lot of research and she supports some far left people on Twitter. She’s a leftist herself and I think she masquerades as a Christian to argue with Christians.

I blocked her but at least one friend from here has her on their FB friends list too. That’s why I took her because it said that on her friend request list. I am warning that person you are hosting a demon on your friends list!!

It was if it Satan was using her mouth to try and hurt me. Even knowing who was behind it, her cruel words hurt me so badly that I stayed up praying and trying to let it go until 2:30 this morning.

There are ravenous wolves in the camp. Please use the Spirit of discernment to weed them out. I have her name if anything similar has happened to any of you Message me. I will give you her name.

I ask for your prayers. I know God is surrounding me with angels and, though it painful, no weapon formed against me will prosper.

Do You Need A Money Miracle?

Are there some of you who are believing the Lord for a certain amount of money? I mean it might be for a bill, a business, your house payment or your car payment, some specific amount that you desperately need?

I am feeling like you are believing for the largest amount you have ever believed for and you are trying to build up your faith and you have no idea how God is going to do it for you but you are still believing regardless of what it looks like in the natural.

We can believe for gas money or food money but this is different. Now most of us tell God, “you know as soon as you bless me Lord, I am going to bless Sister so and so or brother so and so.”

But I have learned, in order to really get Gods attention we have to give when it’s the hardest to do so. The widows mite moved Gods hand. Elijah asked for bread from a widow who only had enough for herself and her son for one more day and yet she gave and from that day forward the Bible said she never went hungry again.

When you open your hand and give to somebody else in need God will open his and give to you too.

Find someone else in need and if all you have is a sandwich give them half of it! Then watch God move in your behalf too!

1 Kings 17:7-16 New International Version (NIV)

Elijah and the Widow at Zarephath

7 Some time later the brook dried up because there had been no rain in the land. 8 Then the word of the Lord came to him: 9 “Go at once to Zarephath in the region of Sidon and stay there. I have directed a widow there to supply you with food.” 10 So he went to Zarephath. When he came to the town gate, a widow was there gathering sticks. He called to her and asked, “Would you bring me a little water in a jar so I may have a drink?” 11 As she was going to get it, he called, “And bring me, please, a piece of bread.”

12 “As surely as the Lord your God lives,” she replied, “I don’t have any bread—only a handful of flour in a jar and a little olive oil in a jug. I am gathering a few sticks to take home and make a meal for myself and my son, that we may eat it—and die.”

13 Elijah said to her, “Don’t be afraid. Go home and do as you have said. But first make a small loaf of bread for me from what you have and bring it to me, and then make something for yourself and your son. 14 For this is what the Lord, the God of Israel, says: ‘The jar of flour will not be used up and the jug of oil will not run dry until the day the Lord sends rain on the land.’”

15 She went away and did as Elijah had told her. So there was food every day for Elijah and for the woman and her family. 16 For the jar of flour was not used up and the jug of oil did not run dry, in keeping with the word of the Lord spoken by Elijah.

The Peace Of A Renewed Mind

If you’ve been following me for very long you probably know that I went through a period of God renewing my mind.

I had been through so much earlier on in my life, that I was experiencing a lot of what I would call paranoid thinking. I had read the book Battlefield of the Mind by Joyce Meyer. I had come to the conclusion that my mind needed to be renewed. You probably know the Scripture in Romans 12:2 says “Be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind.”

I can remember the exact day I was sitting in front of my computer and out of the blue Satan put a thought in my mind. I begin to think on that thought and the more I thought about it, the more I begin to get this whole scenario going on in my mind about what I thought was going on in the situation. The more I thought about it the more my imagination went wild.

Suddenly, God spoke to my mind, “Cathie none of this that you are thinking is true. You think it’s true because it happened to you in another situation. Cathie, Satan is having a heyday with your mind.”

God begin to teach me that the thoughts we think expand. In other words if we are worried about something and we dwell on that, before you know it our thoughts are completely out of control. Not to mention that demons are attracted to worry thoughts and when we worry every demon in hell shows up to try to destroy our mind.

God begin to teach me to control my thoughts. When worry thoughts began to bombard my mind, I began to say to myself STOP. Then immediately I would force my mind to go somewhere else. I would turn on a move, I would play a game or I would read a book. Two thoughts cannot exist in our minds at the same time. It’s up to us to take control of our minds.

We may have spent a whole lot of time worrying about things. So we’re going to have to take time to renew our minds. Worry is a choice. We can just as easily choose not to worry.

We need to pray for God to help us renew our minds. God will meet us right where we are and help us to renew our minds. Once we’ve been doing it for a while we begin to feel overwhelming peace in the midst of problems, simply by not getting into worry about them.

I am convinced that every single occasion to sin in starts in our mind. For instance I noticed that when I’m trying to lose weight I might start thinking about a wonderful hot fudge sundae. I begin to see it in my mind, I imagine the creaminess of the ice cream and that wonderful chocolatey taste of the hot fudge. If I don’t stop that thought, it will eventually lead to me eating a hot fudge sundae.

If we do not let God teach us how to control our minds, even we Christians can get in all kinds of trouble. Trusting God is the antidote to worry, a spirit of imaginations and of fear that these things in our mind cause us to have. In Matthew 6:25 Jesus commands us not to worry.

If we have spent years letting our minds control us it may take a while, but with constant practice we can renew our minds.

There is a peace that God gives that passes all understanding but we will never find that peace until we make the choice to let God renew our minds.

In His Unconditional love,

Receiving The Baptism of The Holy Spirit

I accepted Jesus as my personal savior in the mid nineteen seventies. I had been raised without knowledge of the Word of God. My mother was an alcoholic when I was young and my father was codependent with her. My early years, as an only child, were full of dysfunction.

I fell madly in love with Jesus. I can remember that a week after I was saved I was watching Christian TV and they were explaining the baptism of the Holy Spirit. I wanted that too. I wanted all of the Christian experience!

My husband was at work and my children were taking naps. I got down on my hands and knees and started to pray and praise Jesus. Immediately the things in the room faded away as I got my first vision.

In front on my eyes, close enough to touch, I saw Jesus. He was hanging bloody and beaten upon the cross. I started crying and said, “No, oh God NO.” He raised his hanging listless head, looked me right in the eyes and said, “Cathie, if you were the only person in the world I would have still hung here just for you, that’s how much I love you!” I started crying, thanking him, telling him how much I loved him and suddenly I began to speak in a heavenly language. I had received the baptism of the Holy Spirit.

Shortly after that we bought our first little home ,for one dollar down on a VA loan, in Chino Hills California. The majority of our neighbors were Vietnam veterans and their families.

Not knowing the Word I took everything in the Bible literally. I read about, “Go into your prayer closet,” and I took it literally. When my two older children were in school, and the two youngest were down for naps, I would go into my closet and praise God and pray.

One day, after praying, I laid down on my bed to take a nap. I had a plaque on the wall that said, “But for the JOY set before Him, Jesus endured the cross.” Young, and not a longtime Christian, I wondered what that meant. All of a sudden the room got bright and full of light. I looked to my left and saw an angel standing there. He was dressed in a long white robe, with a gold sash around his waist. He had Aqua blue eyes and golden blonde hair. He touched me and all of a sudden beautiful waves of joy started washing over me. One wave of ecstasy after the other. I had never felt so peaceful. I never wanted that joy to end. It was supernatural and it was the most beautiful feeling ever! He spoke, and said, “That is the joy, set before Jesus. In heaven it never ends!”

Then I understood. I began to do neighborhood ministry. Many women came to know Jesus. I cannot wait to see them, in joy, in heaven!

We soon would sell that home, due to the children’s dad job transfer, and move to Visalia California. There the Lord would lead me to start another neighborhood bible study and sent me a mature woman of the Lord to teach it. Again many came to know Jesus. After being there a couple of years we were transferred to Seattle, Washington. I again started a neighborhood bible study. Women were getting saved. I wasn’t teaching but preaching and ministering to women.

At this point, Satan was getting rattled. He began to bring the big guns against me to destroy the ministry. Because I was not grounded in the Word I began to backslid. I stayed backslidden for years. Thankfully God had his hand on me and eventually, after going through a self-created Hell, I was restored to God.

Today, I know that some of you reading this have been away too. I know that God has great plans for your life but you have strayed as I did. Satan has used things to try and destroy you but you are still here! Why? Because God has held you. You are His. Today is your day. Renounce your past and ask Him to forgive you. Tell Him you are so sorry for straying. Admit and renounce the things you have been involved with. Ask Him to help you live daily for Him. Then, beloved, expect miracles! Your life is being launched forward. Buckle your seatbelt and prepare for a glorious ride!

Need a bible? I will send you one for free. See below and write me. Currently I only have the ability to send bibles to those in the USA. Pray that God provides enough to send them internationally too!

Thus Sayeth Yeshua

Thus sayeth Yeshua,

Some of my children have become too focused on their past failures. In doing so they have not dealt with the pain they have suffered at the hands of others. In doing so you walk wounded. You put a smile on your face and yet inside you are battling depression. Because you don’t admit your emotional pain to anyone it manifests in other areas of your body as physical pain.

Spend some time each day picturing in your mind those who hurt you. Then see me walking between you and each person. One at a time. I am the light of the world. See my glorious resurrected body full of golden light that covers both you and the person who hurt you. Then say, “I forgive you in the name of Jesus.” Notice the peace you feel as my radiance surrounds you both. Daily do this until you feel no more hate, anger and hurt towards those who hurt you.

You cannot use past pain as a reason to justify your compulsive behaviors anymore. All compulsive use of drugs, alcohol, food, and sex originates out of a need to meditate your pain.

You are speaking what the scriptures say but you are not in sync with your soul. You must be free of the hurt within to overcome the things that hold you back from being truly free and bringing your body, soul and spirit completely in agreement with my unconditional love.

This is what I meant when I spoke to my disciples that they too could work miracles as I did and even greater. When you are in total agreement with my will prayer answers come naturally.

I kept my heart free from constantly remembering hurt, rejection and abuse though people said horrible things to and about me. You must learn to do the same.

12 Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. 13 And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14 You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it. John 14:12-14

1Corinthians 13:4-5

Love does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.

Monday Musings

So many Christians have been under full attack in the past few years. We have lost people we love from our lives, material possessions, reputations, and/or our health.

We feel as if all this brokenness has gotten us to the point of total surrender. We love God and we have determined to never leave His side because He is our only safe harbor.

But, beloved of the Lord, we still haven’t “arrived” yet. We have not, nor will we ever, reach a time where we are left alone. Satan harassed Jesus until the very end. People spoke horrific things to him and spit on Him on the cross.

I see and feel God working in the area of sins we may have battled since childhood. I see God making us more aware of how these things need to go as we ask for a deeper and closer walk with Him.

One area God was speaking to me about yesterday was unanswered prayer. What keeps our prayers from being answered?

For a lot of us it’s conditional love. We simply don’t like some people. They “rub” us the wrong way. In our heads we have a constant dialogue running. The largest huddle to jump over is hate. I have asked God to help me to find unconditional love for these people. I ask Him to allow me to see people through his eyes of unconditional love. Hate, gossip, jealousy, not forgiving, all these things HINDER PRAYER.

Have a blessed week!

222

In asking God for a Word today I was reminded that this is February 22. I then realized it is a 222 day. So many people tell me they see 222 often.

God directed me to Daniel 2:22.

But in getting complete answers I also always look at the scripture before and after the one I am interested in.

…21He changes the times and seasons; He removes kings and establishes them. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning. 22He reveals the deep and hidden things; He knows what lies in darkness, and light dwells with Him. 23To You, O God of my fathers, I give thanks and praise, because You have given me wisdom and power. And now You have made known to me what we have requested, for You have made known to us the dream of the king.

Look for things to be revealed today. Things that may have been hidden to you will suddenly become revealed. It is God that promotes people and also God that removes them from our lives as well as from the Global stage.

It could be that a prominent world leader will be removed. I would not be surprised if something big doesn’t happen in Venezuela soon. It’s a humanitarian crisis that cannot be allowed to continue.

Either way, either in your life personally or in our lives globally I discern big changes today!

Trusting God When Nothing Is Making Sense

All day long I have felt the Lord laying it on my heart to share this with people who are feeling so frustrated with the way their life is going. People who believe God gave them a promise for their life and they see no evidence of it year after year after year. As a matter of fact some of you are wondering if you really did hear from God!

I have heard the story of Samson and Delilah my whole life. There is a part of it that God used yesterday in order to show me something I had not seen in the same way before. I was listening to Pastor Steven Furtick preach on the story yesterday when God opened my eyes to something through his sermon.

The part that came alive to me was the part in JUDGES 13. An Angel Of The Lord appears to Samson’s mother:

“Now therefore, please be careful not to drink wine or similar drink, and not to eat anything unclean. For behold, you shall conceive and bear a son. And no razor shall come upon his head, for the child shall be a Nazirite to God from the womb; and he shall begin to deliver Israel out of the hand of the Philistines.” (Judges 13:4 & 13-14)

So she is told her son was to be used to deliver Israel out of the hands of the Philistines. She followed all the rules. She, and her husband, took time to raise Samson in the house of God. God had something important for their son to do. He was God’s anointed.

Time passes. When he was a young adult, Samson left the hills of his people to see the cities of Philistia. He fell in love with a Philistine woman from Timnah, whom he decided to marry, ignoring the objections of his parents, who were concerned because the Israelites were forbidden to marry Gentiles.

About now, if I was Samson’s mother, I would be thinking, “How can this be Lord? What you said to me had nothing to do with my son marrying the enemy! What is going on?”

As we read the whole story we come to see that what looked like a terrible mistake actually was part of God’s plan.

A lot of us think our miracle is going to be straight forward. Now when things aren’t looking good and everything is going crazy, we might be tempted to give up our dream.

What we fail to see is that when everything in the natural is looking bad, we have to stay calm. God will do what he said he will do, just like he did with Samson eventually. We have to trust the plan because God will not do it in the way it makes sense to us, instead he will do it in a way in which, when it happens against all odds, not just us, but all those watching, will know it was only because of God that we got our miracle!

You might not see it right now, beloved, but if you simply trust God, like a well woven quilt, your life is all going to all come together for your GOOD.

In His Unconditional Love,
