FS Word of Power – No More Tears- No More Pain – 09/15/21

FS Word of Power
September 15
Eva Windahl

“No more tears- no more pain…”

When we lose dear and loved ones, when death stares us in the face and sorrow holds our heart in a tight grip- God wants you to know that he sees your suffering- he sees your pain. But hear this: There is NOTHING on Earth that Heaven can’t heal. God will personally comfort you! His heart goes out to you today and wants you to know that he sees every tear you cry. There is Hope because he himself has conquered death! There is Hope because he is indeed ALIVE. There is Hope because he really hears you when you pray. He cares! Today I hear him say: Take heart this too shall pass! Come now and I shall take you in my arms and wipe away all your tears …If you are grieving right now or need to comfort those close to you in pain, allow me to give you the following scriptures from your Father in Heaven reassuring you that he knows your pain.
Revelation 21:4 and He will wipe away every tear from their eyes; and there will no longer be any death; there will no longer be any mourning, or crying, or pain; the first things have passed away.”
“He is despised and rejected by men, a Man of sorrows and acquainted with grief” (Isaiah 53:4). Jesus, the greatest empathizer, understands what you are going through and will stay beside you.
“Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted” (Matthew 5:4). The Lord will wrap His arms of love and comfort around those who trust in Him.

“He heals the broken hearted and binds up their wounds” (Psalm 147:3). Lean on God and allow Him to continue the process of healing your broken heart.

“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble” (2 Corinthians 1:3, 4). Comforting you is God’s specialty.

“Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand” (Isaiah 41:10). God promises to be with you and get you through this time of intense disappointment and loneliness.

“Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me” (Psalm 23:4). Depend on His guidance to lead you out of that dark valley.

“I do not want you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning those who have fallen asleep, lest you sorrow as others who have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will bring with Him those who sleep in Jesus” (1 Thessalonians 4:13, 14). As believers, we have hope of the resurrection promised by God.

“The trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. … So when this corruptible has put on incorruption, and this mortal has put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written: ‘Death is swallowed up in victory’ ” (1 Corinthians 15:52, 54). At Christ’s return, those who belong to Him will be raised and given life that will never end.

Rend Your Hearts – Not Your Garments

Rend Your Hearts – Not Your Garments

Risa Utley

(rutley4779@aol.com)

9/11/2021

Heard this morning:

Joel 2:13
Rend your heart, not your garments, and turn to Adonai, your God. For he is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger, abundant in mercy, and relenting about the calamity due.

Rending your garments is only an outward show of mourning, it is for others to see. No change is really made, just an outward appearance. No different than hired mourners to make a show of weeping at a funeral of someone they don’t even know. But it looks good.

Rending your heart is an inward thing, it may be invisible to others, but it results in a real change. It is true mourning, brings true repentance and real change.

We (the ones who name the Name of Jesus, Yeshua) are too quick to rend our garments at injustices (real or perceived) and not our hearts at the real problem: sin. We make a big deal about OUR rights, OUR hurts, but what about Him?

A few years ago, there was a fad about WWJD bracelets, “what would Jesus do”. It is true, if we really took the time to ask that question and listen for the real answer, a lot of trouble could be avoided. But in reality, it was just more of rending our garments, for show. Because if we really wanted to “do as Jesus would do” a lot of what we do “in His name” is really just rending garments and nothing like what He would do.

Remember James and John? When they were not received in a town, they were ready to call down fire from heaven and destroy them, Jesus told them NO. Remember the lady caught in adultery? The “righteous” had the right to stone her, but Jesus said NO. Remember the leper? The law said that a leper had to remain separate, away from people. Jesus not only received the leper, He touched him and healed him. Remember the disciples who saw someone else casting out devils in the name of Jesus and told Jesus to rebuke them because they weren’t “with them”? Jesus said NO.

Social media has made many of us into vocal warriors. We are quick to rend our garments and shout out the injustices we see, we are ready to call down fire upon folks who think differently. We are ready to block, unfriend, and report those whom we believe are wrong. We are “fact-checked” ad nauseum by others who have no more information or truth than we have. We are indignant and ready to fight to the death for our rights.

What if…what if we stopped rending our garments and instead, we rend our hearts? What if we really asked Jesus/Yeshua what He would do? What if we as the body of Christ actually worked to advance the Kingdom of God instead of our idea of what government should be? After all, the world will never be subject to the Law of God and can’t be, until Jesus/Yeshua comes back and sets up His kingdom. We forget that a sinner will always sin, that is all they know. But we are not of the world if we have been born again. So why are we so shocked when the world does what it does?

We are supposed to pray for our leaders. But not so we can get our way, listen to what it says:

I Timothy 2:1-4

1. Therefore, first of all I urge that requests, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgiving be made on behalf of all people—

2. for kings and all who are in authority—so we may live a peaceful and quiet life in all godliness and respectfulness.

3. This is good and pleasing in the sight of God our Savior.

4. He desires all men to be saved and come into the knowledge of the truth.

Do you see that? Pray for all people, which includes leaders so that we can live a peaceful and quiet life in godliness and respectfulness. And the reason is because He desired everyone to be saved and come into the knowledge of the truth—and the Truth is Jesus. Not what we think is truth. Rending our hearts in prayer and intercession, not our garments so that we appear to be offended.

What would Jesus do? What DID He do? He only had harsh words for the religious “righteous” leaders who were concerned with their place in society and their power to lord over the people. For the sinners, He said come to ME and as they came, they were changed.

We don’t fight this fight with our natural mind or machinations, we fight this on our knees and from our hearts. We don’t convince anyone with rhetoric, we take it to the Lord, get His heart, His mind, and only say/do what He says to say/do.

Let’s rend our hearts, not for show but to see the lost be saved; to repent and seek God to turn the hearts of the people to Him; to heal our land; and to see the Kingdom of God advanced one soul at a time. That is why we are here. We are to bring His Kingdom to earth, to make disciples and bring His message to the lost.

We don’t win people by force, we win them by showing His Heart, His Love.

You Have Time to Sit with God – 09/12/21

FS Sunday Sermon
You Have Time to Sit with God
By: Marshall Segal

When we stop to remember that God exists — that he created all that is from nothing; that he sustains everything we know, moment by moment, with just a word from his mouth; that he governs every government on earth; that he entered into his creation, taking on flesh, enduring weakness and temptation, suffering hostility to the point of death, even death on a cross, all to shower us with mercy, cleanse us of our sin, and secure our eternity with him in paradise — it is stunning, isn’t it, that we ignore and neglect him like we do.

Isn’t it amazing that God simply was before time began, and yet we sometimes struggle to find even ten minutes for him? Isn’t it perplexing, bordering on insanity, that we sometimes prefer distracting ourselves with our phones over taking advantage of our breathtaking access to his throne of grace in Christ? Isn’t it kind of unexplainable how we often live as if we do not have time to sit and enjoy God?

It is stunning, amazing, and perplexing, and yet so painfully familiar. Everyone who has followed Jesus knows what it is like to be distracted from following Jesus. That means we all, every one of us, can sympathize with anxious Martha.

Distracted by Fear

When Martha saw that Jesus had come to town, she welcomed him into the home where she and her sister lived (Luke 10:38). When Mary saw Jesus, she immediately sat down at his feet, and hung on his every word (Luke 10:39). “But Martha,” Luke tells us, “was distracted with much serving” (Luke 10:40).

To her credit, she was not distracted with little serving, but with much serving. And it’s hard for some of us to be too hard on her. She was hosting the Messiah — Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace — and she alone was preparing the food. Mary realized who Jesus was, and sat down to listen. Martha realized who Jesus was, and ran to do all she could for him.

The serving itself was not the problem — or at least not the main problem — especially given the social expectations for hospitality in her day. What, then, was the problem? Anxiety was consuming Martha. When she complained to Jesus that Mary was not helping her, he responded, “Martha, Martha, you are anxious and troubled about many things” (Luke 10:41). Her grumbling had opened wide a window into her heart. Love was not inspiring her to serve; anxiety was. Her turmoil was driven by misplaced fear. How often is this true of us?

And not just a fear, but many fears. “Martha, Martha, you are anxious and troubled about many things.” This wasn’t just about hospitality. Martha was distracted from Jesus because her mind was drowning in the cares of this world. And because she would not stop and listen to Jesus, she was forfeiting the calm she so desperately needed.

One Necessary Thing

Jesus knows how to still the raging waves of anxiety. Notice that he says her name not once, but twice: “Martha, Martha . . .” You can almost hear him slowing down the second time. He uses his voice, like a brake, to slowly quiet the turbulence in her heart. He knows how distracted she is, how wildly her mind is racing from one worry to another, and so he begins by helping her focus: “Martha, Martha . . .”

“You are anxious and troubled about many things,” he goes on to say, “but one thing is necessary. Mary has chosen the good portion, which will not be taken away from her” (Luke 10:41–42). In just two short sentences, he confronts her sinful anxiety — our sinful anxiety — with necessity, then felicity, and lastly security.

NECESSITY

“You are troubled about many things,” he says, “but one thing is necessary.” In other words, everything that feels so pressing, so critical, so overwhelming is ultimately unnecessary next to hearing and knowing Jesus. Her fears screamed the opposite: What will we serve him? What will he think about the food? How will this compare with other places he’s visited? Did the neighbors notice Jesus came to our house? Why isn’t Mary helping me? We don’t know what precise anxieties were harassing Martha, but we know they were many — and that each concern insisted it was essential and urgent. Only one thing, however, was truly necessary.

Hundreds of years before Martha was born, King David had already learned this lesson: “One thing have I asked of the Lord, that will I seek after: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord and to inquire in his temple” (Psalm 27:4). He said this while evildoers assailed him (verse 2), and armies encamped against him (verse 3), and lies and threats fell like arrows all around him (verse 12). In other words, he had every reason to fear, and yet even then, he knew the one thing he must do: seek the Lord.

Satan will try to make everything feel more urgent than sitting down to be with Jesus. But in the end, only one thing is truly necessary. And it’s not the hard conversation you’re dreading, or the pile of deadlines at work, or some distant drama on social media, or the exam you need to pass next week, or the debt you’re afraid you’ll never pay off. One thing is necessary — today, tomorrow, next Tuesday, and every day after — to know, obey, and enjoy Jesus.

FELICITY

The necessity of this one pursuit, however, does not make it an unhappy pursuit. “One thing is necessary,” Jesus says. “Mary has chosen the good portion.” While it might seem like Mary had abandoned her responsibilities and left her sister out to dry, she actually had chosen wisely and lovingly.

For choosing the one necessary thing, Mary received the good portion. Necessary was no sacrifice for her; it was all gain. She was drinking from a well that would never run dry, feasting from an overflowing table, swimming in an ocean of hope and peace and joy. Because his presence was her portion, her portion was not just right, but good. Her sitting and listening said what the apostle Paul would one day say in Philippians 3:8: “I count everything as loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord.”

Martha, meanwhile, was drinking from another well that day — one that left her even more thirsty. While the fountain of living water sat in her living room, she feverishly carved out cisterns for herself, “broken cisterns that can hold no water” (Jeremiah 2:13). That’s how the fear of man oppresses us: it begs and pleads for our attention, but is never satisfied. Fear breeds fear breeds fear. But the good fountain — the good portion — breeds peace and contentment, quenches our thirsts, satisfies our longings, and gives our souls rest. Necessity, for Mary and for us, is also felicity.

SECURITY

Lastly, this necessary and happy pursuit is also profoundly safe. “Mary has chosen the good portion, which will not be taken away from her.” Not only has Mary chosen wisely, sitting at his feet to receive his words, but she has chosen happiness. And not just any happiness, but a full and abundant happiness that no person or circumstance could ever take from her. Is there any better word to a heart distracted by worry? The good I will give you, you will never, ever lose.

Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword? . . . No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 8:35, 37–39)

Have the cares of this world distracted you from sitting at the feet of Jesus? Have your fears left you feeling restless, insecure, unstable? The God of the universe is still speaking, right now, in his word. Hear his voice calling your name today, bidding you to come and enjoy the one necessary thing, the one satisfying thing, the one safe thing. You have time to sit with God.

The Gospel of Matthew Lesson 7 (Continued) 09/11/21

LESSON 7

THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO MATTHEW

CHPTRS. 20-24

Matt. 22:15-46 & Explanations Matt. 22:15-33

Matt. 22: 15 -46 Then the Pharisees went and plotted how they might entangle Him in His talk.16 And they sent to Him their disciples with the Herodians, saying, “Teacher, we know that You are true, and teach the way of God in truth; nor do You care about anyone, for You do not regard the person of men.17 “Tell us, therefore, what do You think? Is it lawful to pay taxes to Caesar, or not?”18 But Jesus perceived their wickedness, and said, “Why do you test Me, you hypocrites?19 “Show Me the tax money.” So they brought Him a denarius.20 And He said to them, “Whose image and inscription is this?”21 They said to Him, “Caesar’s.” And He said to them, “Render therefore to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s.”22 When they had heard these words, they marveled, and left Him and went their way.23 The same day the Sadducees, who say there is no resurrection, came to Him and asked Him,24 saying: “Teacher, Moses said that if a man dies, having no children, his brother shall marry his wife and raise up offspring for his brother.25 “Now there were with us seven brothers. The first died after he had married, and having no offspring, left his wife to his brother.26 “Likewise the second also, and the third, even to the seventh.27 “Last of all the woman died also.28 “Therefore, in the resurrection, whose wife of the seven will she be? For they all had her.”29 Jesus answered and said to them, “You are mistaken, not knowing the Scriptures nor the power of God.30 “For in the resurrection they neither marry nor are given in marriage, but are like angels of God in heaven.31 “But concerning the resurrection of the dead, have you not read what was spoken to you by God, saying,32 ‘I am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob’? God is not the God of the dead, but of the living.”33 And when the multitudes heard this, they were astonished at His teaching.34 But when the Pharisees heard that He had silenced the Sadducees, they gathered together.35 Then one of them, a lawyer, asked Him a question, testing Him, and saying,36 “Teacher, which is the great commandment in the law?”37 Jesus said to him, “ ‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’38 “This is the first and great commandment.39 “And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’40 “On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.”41 While the Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus asked them,42 saying, “What do you think about the Christ? Whose Son is He?” They said to Him, “The Son of David.”43 He said to them, “How then does David in the Spirit call Him ‘Lord,’ saying:44 ‘The Lord said to my Lord, 1 “Sit at My right hand, Till I make Your enemies Your footstool” ’? 45 “If David then calls Him ‘Lord,’ how is He his Son?”46 And no one was able to answer Him a word, nor from that day on did anyone dare question Him anymore.
22:15-46 THE HOUSE OF HERAUDES TESTS YAH SHUA Then the Pherisas go and take counsel on how to catch him in words: and they apostolize their disciples, with the house of Heraudes wording to him, Doctor, we know you are true, and doctrinate the way of God in truth: and you bear no anxiety for humanity: for you take not the face of humanity: so word to us, How see you? Is it allowed to give head silver to the Qesar — or not? And Yah Shua, knowing their evil, words, Why test you me, you hypocrizing hypocrites? Show me the dinara head silver. — and they offer him a dinara. And Yah Shua words to them, Whose is this icon and scripture? They word to him, Of the Qesar. Then he words to them,So give that of the Qesar to the Qesar: and that of God to God. And when they hear they marvel and leave him and go. THE ZADUQAYA TEST YAH SHUA That day the Zaduqaya approach him— who word of not having the living from the dead and ask him, wording, Doctor, Mosheh words to us, if a human dies, when not having sons, his brother takes his woman and raises seed for his brother: and there have been seven brothers with us: and the first takes the woman, and dies: and there having been no son, leaves his woman to his brother: likewise also the second and also three until seven:and finally all die — even the woman. Genesis 38:8—10 So in the resurrection, of these seven, whose woman becomes she? — for they all had taken her. Yah Shua answers them, wording,You err, not knowing the scriptures and not the power of God: for in the resurrection of the deadthey take not a woman, and a woman be not to a man — but have as the angels of God in the heavens. And concerning the resurrection of the dead: recall you not what God worded to you by God, wording, I — I AM the God of Abraham the God of Yischaq the God of Yaaqub?— being God, not of the dead but of the living.— and when the congregation hears this, they are astonishing at his doctrine. THE PHERISAS TEST YAH SHUA And when the Pherisas hear that he hushed the Zaduqaya, they congregate to him: and one of them, knowing the torah, asks, when testing him, Doctor, which is the great misvah in the torah? And Yah Shua words to him, Love Yah Veh your God from all your heart and from all your soul and from all your power and from all your mind — this is the first and great misvah and the second is like it, Befriend your neighbor as your soul:— in these two misvoth hang the torah and the prophets. Deuteronomy 6:5, Leviticus 19:18 YAH SHUA TESTS THE PHERISAS And the Pherisas congregate and Yah Shua asks them, wording, What word you concerning the Meshiah? Whose son is he? They are wording to him, The son of David. He words to them, How, in spirit, calls David him Lord for he words, A word of Yah Veh to my Lord: Sit by my right, until I place your ba’al enemies under your feet? So if David calls him Lord, how is he his son? And humanity is not able to give him a word, and humanity dares not again from that day to question him. Ps. 101:1 Aramaic NC

A. Question from the Pharisees.

1. (15-17) After a flattering introduction, the Pharisees ask Jesus a problematic question.
a. Plotted how they might entangle Him in His talk: Here the Pharisees and the Herodians worked together. This was evidence of their great hatred of Jesus, because they were willing to put aside their own differences for the sake of uniting against Jesus.
1). The Herodians: The name of this party probably originated in a kind of hero-worship for Herod the Great.
2). Jesus had been directly accusing and exposing the religious leaders; now they are fighting back. Now we see the Jewish leaders launching their counterattack; and they do so by directing at Jesus carefully formulated questions.

b. We know that You are true and teach the way of God in truth; nor do you care about anyone, for You do not regard the person of men: Their plotting led them to approach Jesus with flattery. They hoped He was insecure or foolish enough to be impressed by their hollow praise.
1). The compliment, besides being treacherous, was insulting, implying that Jesus was a reckless simpleton who would give Himself away, and a vain man who could be flattered.

c. Is it lawful to pay taxes to Caesar, or not? Jesus’ dilemma with this question was simple. If He said that taxes should be paid, He could be accused of denying the sovereignty of God over Israel (making Himself unpopular with the Jewish people). If He said that taxes should not be paid, He made Himself an enemy of Rome.
1). Lawful does not refer to Roman law (there was no question about that!), but to the law of God; is it permissible for the people of God to express allegiance to a pagan emperor?
2). This particular tax was the poll tax. Paying the poll tax was the most obvious sign of submission to Rome. Zealots claimed the poll tax was a God-dishonoring badge of slavery to the pagans.

2. (18-22) Jesus answers: give to Caesar what is his but give to God what belongs to God.
a. And He asked, “Whose image and inscription is this?” Again, with His wise answer, Jesus showed that He was in complete control. He rebuked the wickedness and hypocrisy of the Pharisees and Herodians.

b. Render therefore to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s: Jesus affirmed that the government makes legitimate requests of us. We are responsible to God in all things, but we must be obedient to government in matters civil and national.
1). Peter said it like this: Fear God. Honor the king. (1 Peter 2:17)
2). Render generally means give back (whereas the verb they had used in verse 17 was simply give). It is the verb for paying a bill or settling a debt; they owe it to him.

c. And to God the things that are God’s: Everyone has the image of God impressed upon them. This means that we belong to God, not to Caesar, or not even to ourselves. We were bought with a price.

1 Corinthians 6:20 For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body [a]and in your spirit, which are God’s.

1). By treating them as distinct Jesus said in effect: The kingdom of God is not of this world, it is possible to be a true citizen of the kingdom and yet quietly submit to the civil rule of a foreign potentate.

B. Question from the Sadducees.
1. (23-28) The Sadducees attempt to ridicule the idea of the resurrection.

a. The Sadducees, who say there is no resurrection: The Sadducees were the ancient version of the modern liberal theologians. They were anti-supernaturalistic, only accepting the first five books of Moses as authentic – and disregarding what was written in those books when it pleased them to do so.
1). The Sadducees were not many in number; but they were the wealthy, the aristocratic, and the governing class.

I always like to quote the pun: Sadducees- They are Sad- you-see

b. Now there were with us seven brothers: The Sadducees asked Jesus a hypothetical – and ridiculous – question, hoping to show that the idea of the resurrection is nonsense. Based on Deuteronomy 25:5-10, if a married man died childless, it was his brother’s responsibility to impregnate his brother’s widow and then count the child as the deceased husband’s descendant. The Pharisees imagined elaborate circumstances along these lines and raised the question, Therefore, in the resurrection, whose wife of the seven will she be?
1). This practice of a brother-in-law marrying the widow of his brother is known as levirate marriage. The term comes from the Latin “lavir,” meaning “brother-in-law.” This is the specific idea in the question. “Marry is not the normal Greek word, but a technical term for the performance of the levirate duty.

a. You are mistaken: The Sadducees connected their thoughts to a Biblical passage but did not think through the passage correctly. These highly-trained men were mistaken in their basic understanding of Biblical truth.

b. Not knowing the Scriptures nor the power of God: Their mistake was rooted in two causes. First, they did not know the Scriptures (though they thought they did). Second, they did not know the power of God, being basically anti-supernaturalists. This was true of them, even though religion was their career and they were highly trained.
1). Not knowing the Scriptures: It is possible for a person to have much Bible knowledge, yet not fundamentally know the Scriptures. Paul later told Timothy to hold fast the pattern of sound words which you have heard from me (2 Timothy 1:13). This suggests that Biblical truth has a pattern to it, a pattern that can be detected by the discerning heart. It also suggests that one can lose this pattern (thus the command to hold fast). The Sadducees had Bible knowledge, but they did not hold fast the pattern of sound words; many today are like them in this respect.

3. (30-33) Jesus answers: resurrection life is different.

a. In the resurrection they neither marry nor are given in marriage: First, Jesus reminded them that life in the resurrection is quite different from this life. It does not merely continue this world and its arrangements, but it is life of a completely different order.
1). This passage has made many wonder if marriage relationships will exist in heaven, or if those who are husband and wife on earth will have no special relationship in heaven. We are not told enough about life in the world beyond to answer in great detail, but we can understand a few principles.

· Family relationships will still be known in life in the world beyond. The rich man Jesus described in the afterlife was aware of his family relationships (Luke 16:27-28).
· The glory of heaven will be a relationship and connection with God that surpasses anything else, including present family relationships (Revelation 21:22-23).

b. Are like the angels of God in heaven: Jesus here said that the angels of God in heaven do not marry; we presume this includes that they do not have sexual relationships.

Yet the words of Jesus do not exclude such a connection for several reasons.
· Jesus spoke of the angels of God in heaven, not the fallen angelic beings indicated in the Genesis and Jude passages.

Many in the Genesis passage say these are the Nephiliam. There are 2 schools of thought here:

(Gen 6:4) There were giants (Nephilim) in the earth in those days. And also after that, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of men, and they bore to them, they were mighty men who existed of old, men of renown.

Job 1:6 Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the Lord, and satan also came among them.

H5303–nephı̂yl nephil–nef-eel’, nef-eel’–From H5307; properly, a feller, that is, a bully or tyrant: – giant. from the Hebrew word Naphal, which means to fall upon, meaning they were creatures of violence.

Who are the sons of God and the Nephilim?

Who are the “sons of God” and the Nephilim in Genesis 6:4? If the Nephilim were a race of giants, how could they appear both before and after the Flood, which destroyed everyone except Noah and his family?

The Nephilim were on the earth in those days – and also afterward – when the sons of God went to the daughters of men and had children by them. They were the heroes of old, men of renown.

· Jesus did not say that angelic beings were incapable of sexual expression, only that such relationships did not exist among the angels in heaven.
· We can’t be certain of the type of sexual connection indicated in the Genesis and Jude passages. It is entirely possible that the connection was not between material appearances of these angelic beings and humans, but that the evil angelic beings expressed themselves through uniquely demon-possessed humans.

Jude 6 And the angels who did not keep their [c]proper domain, but left their own abode, He has reserved in everlasting chains under darkness for the judgment of the great day;

Tom Clark as we have known him always with a smile….Tom Clark Navy…….Tom and Margie Clark

Pictures Below:

Tom was always quick to pray for people, always encouraging you and standing behind you. He loved to worship Yahweh as seen here in pictures of him with the Mattah (Staff). He loved everyone, especially Terry Thompson and Jim Mellard, his running buddies. He called his group the “3 Musketeers.”

He prayed over many for healing and taught us things from Charles and Frances Hunter’s Healing Ministry, so we could pray healing for others. His favorite was the laying on of hands and praying for arms and legs to grow out and be equal. One picture here shows him with Cathy Matthew who felt she heard Father Yahweh say, don’t put those braces back on. You don’t need them anymore.” She came to Tom for confirmation and on his knees he prayed for her to be healed and whole. She has to this day, not put the braces on. She donated them to help others.

He prayed and encouraged me to be who I am and always loved to do ministry to all our Firestorm friends and families. I’m pretty sure in the picture below he gave me a prophetic facelift. (smile)

Tom and Margie have been with Firestorm for many years, faithful in teaching the Saints more about Yahweh and His Healing Powers and showing us real Christian friendship and love. He was always helping others.

 

I thought I would leave you with one more picture of Tom and a message from him on “faith.” As he said, “Choose Faith over Fear.” So be it!

We love you too Tom

KEY TO PUTTING OFF. YOUR THOUGHT LIFE.
Philippians 4:8-9
Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. What you have learned and received and heard and seen in me—practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you. ESV
THE ULTIMATED PUT ON AND OFF–PUT ON LOVE, PUT OFF LACK OF LOVE–LOVE AND CARE FOR ONE ANOTHER

Eph 4:23-24: and be renewed in the spirit of your mind, (24) and that you put on the new man which was created according to God, in true righteousness and holiness.
Verse 24 to tell us what that reformed thinking looks like – we are to put on the new man, which was created according to God in true righteousness and holiness.
It is to think of yourself as the new man who was created in the image of God — the new man who is righteous and holy. He’s saying this is who you are!

Let’s face it we live in a world greedy for self-gratification. It is I, I, I, me, me, me, mine, mine, mine. THIS IS NOT WHAT WE ARE CALLED TO DO.

Let us emulate the character and image of Christ. LOVE!! You are the light of the world reflecting Jesus to everyone you meet. You are the only Jesus Christ some people will ever see. I’m not saying you are Jesus, but you reflect His character if you are a believer.
We are to be different from the world. We are to love and care for one another. Whether in Wal-Mart buying groceries or at the local game, let’s reflect Christ’s character. Let’s do the golden rule. Let’s love and care for one another.
There are 250 one another’s in the Word of God. Here are just a few:

FS Word of Power – “He is our help and shield”

FS Word of Power
September 1, 2021
Eva Windahl

“He is our help and shield”

Sometimes we can look around and wonder “Lord -where are you?”. Don´t you see what is happening? Today, let me reassure you that God has let you “hanging”. He knows exactly what he is doing!

Let´s listen to psalm 115:2 –

Why do the nations say,
“Where is their God?”
3 Our God is in heaven;
he does whatever pleases him.
4 But their idols are silver and gold,
made by human hands.
5 They have mouths, but cannot speak,
eyes, but cannot see.
6 They have ears, but cannot hear,
noses, but cannot smell.
7 They have hands, but cannot feel,
feet, but cannot walk,
nor can they utter a sound with their throats.
8 Those who make them will be like them,
and so will all who trust in them.
9 All you Israelites, trust in the LORD—
he is their help and shield.
10 House of Aaron, trust in the LORD—
he is their help and shield.
11 You who fear him, trust in the LORD—
he is their help and shield.
12 The LORD remembers us and will bless us:
He will bless his people Israel,
he will bless the house of Aaron,
13 he will bless those who fear the LORD—
small and great alike.

Listen- when you put your trust in Jesus, the living son of God, our savior and redeemer, believing in God of Israel, our father, then you have a PROMISE that he WILL help you, protect you. He will then bless you and surround you with his favor. He is not just any God- he IS GOD AND NO OTHER! Adonai echad! God is ONE! And hear this: He is able! And he remembers our prayers! (verse 12)

A Vision and A Miracle for the Suffering – 08/30/21

Miracle Monday

By Miki Maynard

A Vision and A Miracle for the Suffering
Follow Me!

One day I had a vision and realized I was seeing part of heaven! I saw tons of people and there was a platform. On the platform was the Lion of Judah. What thoughts do you have when you are given a vision? What questions do you have?

One thing is for sure. I know He has reasons for doing everything. The first and foremost purpose I feel that motivates Him is love.

O Jerusalem…How often I wanted to gather your children together, just as a hen gathers her brood under her wings.
Mark 13:34

He longs for the day that we will join Him. Another reason why I believe He gives us visions is; He wants us to realize what He has provided for us.

Oh, the bliss and intense delight of those clothed in washed garments – having realized the authority of the their redeemed innocence and identity; they have sourced their I-am-ness in the Tree of Life. This is their access thru the gates into the city. I am Jesus. I sent my celestial shepherd-messenger to be witness of these things to you before the churches; confirming to you that I am the Root and offspring of David, the radiant Morning Star!
Revelation 22:14, 16 MSB

A final thought on this passage. I think that because of who He is as the Lion of Judah… He wants us to know who we are because of what He did. Did you notice it says that we have a redeemed identity? It says that “They have sourced their I-am-ness.”

Your Identity is Greater Than You Might Think

You are a little “I am.” Doesn’t the bible say that we are one with Him? (John chapters 14-17.) You are not only saved so that you will inherit eternal life when you die. There is more. (Photos via Unsplash)

Jesus made the way to where you are lifted up and accepted into the family as an adopted child. You rule and reign with Him. You create with Him. He says that greater things you shall you do because of him.

I tell you this timeless truth: The person who follows me in faith, believing in me, will do the same might miracles that I do-even greater miracles than these because I go to be with my Father! For I will do whatever you ask me to do when you ask me in my name. And that is how the Son will show what the Father is really like and bring glory to him. Ask me anything in my name, and I will do it for you!” John 14:12-14 TPT

I believe that when we are serving the Lord and want to see others’ lives touched, that we should pray for things that He wants us to pray. Jesus said that He did what the Father was doing. Ask Him to show you what the Father is doing, then respond.

A Miracle for the Suffering

Recently, I was walking down a hallway by an entrance to a hotel and noticed a couple pulling into the carport to the front desk. I discerned immediately that the gal in the passenger seat was ridden with suffering. I really couldn’t see her all that well or anything inside the vehicle. It was the Holy Spirit showing me.

I walked down the hall. I hesitated. The Holy Spirit told me I needed to pray for them. So, knowing that He is spontaneous, and that this opportunity will pass in just moments, I responded and turned around.

I asked God how to start up the conversation? (I live in a state where recent restrictions on masks have been reinstated and many people are walking around tormented by fear from COVID or losing their jobs if they don’t do what they are told.) I decided that I didn’t care what the “restrictions are!” I stepped out of the boat in faith onto the water.

I started the conversation with them. The gal in the car didn’t care about the mandates either. She rolled down her window and stuck out her arm and grabbed my hand.

She had been riddled with COVID for months. We prayed and she began to cry. Then I started crying. She has been praying since last November that someone would reach out to her in prayer.

We parted ways giving glory to God for what He had done!

Jesus reaches out and does things from a place of love.
Jesus wants us to see what He has provided.
Jesus wants us to accept our full identity in Him.

He is the Lion of Judah reigning as a loving King who has all authority. Do you want to grow in your understanding of your identity? He wants you to realize who you are in Him right here on earth. Press into your source.

Lord we hunger and thirst for You! I pray that those reading this, will feel Your presence right now. I declare they will have visions and dreams! In the name of Yahshua. Receive and accept your “I am-ness,” it’s yours.

 

You Have Permission to Slow Down – Start the Day with the Voice of God 08/29/21

FS Sunday Sermon
You Have Permission to Slow Down
Start the Day with the Voice of God
By: David Mathis

Permission to slow down — perhaps that’s what you’re aching for again. Maybe you tasted it for a few weeks, or even months, when the pandemic hit, as event after event was cancelled. But now, with vaccinations in arms, and the collective rush to return to life as “normal” (as much as that’s possible), you’re feeling the need again for life to move slower than the modern world seems to allow.

You’re not alone, and the phenomenon may be understandable, at least in good measure.

Age of Accelerations

According to New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman, we are living in “the age of accelerations.” Our world has become increasingly fast-paced through the exponential development of technology and accompanying factors. Now “the pace of technology and scientific change,” he writes, “outstrips the speed with which human beings and societies can usually adapt” (Thank You for Being Late, 39). Friedman claims that “we are living through one of the greatest inflection points in history” (3) — perhaps unequaled in the last 500 years.

We have come to “a fundamental turning point in history” (4), and perhaps you’ve felt the effects, as I have. To-do lists seem to grow faster than we have time for. We hurry in the morning. Hurry on the road. Hurry at work. Hurry between meetings, and in meetings, and over meals. Hurry to get dinner ready. Hurry to eat. Hurry to get the kids cleaned up, and out the door, and get back home, and get to bed. Then, hurry to do more on evenings and weekends than we realistically have time for. Then hurry to bed ourselves. Get too little sleep. And start it all over the next day.

Even more important than what constant hurry is doing to our work lives, family lives, relationships, and emotional health, is what it’s doing to our souls. The late Dallas Willard (1935–2013) sounded the alarm toward the end of his life: “Hurry is the great enemy of spiritual life in our day.”

Find Your Balance First

The challenge of living in an increasingly fast-paced society, and finding measured ways to slow our lives down to a realistic human speed, will be addressed on many fronts. Whole books, like John Mark Comer’s Ruthless Elimination of Hurry, offer various ideas and strategies. But here I’d like to focus on just one, but one that may be as important, if not more so, than any other:

Begin the day at the pace of God’s word.

Whose Pace? Whose Voice?

In our “age of accelerations,” our lives are awash in words. Words on screens. Words in our ear buds. Words written in articles and ebooks. Words spoken on podcasts and radio. And the in-the-flesh words of family, roommates, neighbors, and coworkers. The question isn’t, Are there voices in your head? But rather whose voices are they — and which ones carry the day in shaping the desires and direction of our souls and lives?

When we begin the day with God’s voice in the Scriptures, we’re welcoming his Truth, his concepts, his mind and will and heart, to direct and shape our lives. We’re making an effort to see the world through God’s words, rather than God through the world’s. Apart from receiving God’s words in sufficient quantity, and with due priority, we will inevitably follow “the course of this world” (Ephesians 2:2) and “be conformed to this world” (Romans 12:2). In time, the world’s patterns and voice and pace will rule us.

So, one significant way to hold back the tides of the world’s pace is to start the day with the voice of God.

Move at the Pace of God’s Word

Coming first to God is critical, but so is the pace at which we move once we’ve come. Rushing in and out of our readings, at the speed of modern life, will do our souls far less good than learning to let the cadence of God’s words set our pace.
But how might we do that? How might we let God himself set the pace? Consider (1) the design of ancient books, and especially the Bible, (2) how we are to read them, and (3) what effect our reading can have on us.

DESIGN OF ANCIENT TEXTS

Unlike so many of our books today, and internet content, ancient texts were not written quickly, nor written to be read quickly. They were designed to be read slowly, enjoyed, reread, and meditated on. After all, they had to be copied by hand. So published words were precious. They were not meant to be read once, but over and over again. And the Christian Scriptures, of all texts, ancient and modern, reward rereading, and slow reading.

Moreover, these are God’s own words. Written through his inspired prophets and apostles, the biblical text is fundamentally different than any other mere human text and deserves from us a distinct approach — which means, at least, reading without rushing. The Bible is God’s breathed-out Book (2 Timothy 3:16), to be breathed in by us as we catch our breath for the day.

When we “slow down” and meditate, memorize, and study Scripture at an unhurried, even leisurely pace, we are not engaging with it in a foreign, unexpected way. God means for his word to be read slowly, meditated on, not speed-read.

CALL TO COMPREHEND — AND EXPERIENCE

Also, we will need to slow down, from our normal pace of reading the news and contemporary texts, so we might comprehend what the ancient writer, speaking for God, has to say. The Scriptures were written centuries, even millennia, before us — in places and times different than our own. And not only that, but the Bible is divine in its content. No biblical prophecy, Peter writes, “was ever produced by the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit” (2 Peter 1:21).

Not only is the Bible itself designed to be engaged differently — more slowly and repeatedly — than our published words today, but also we, as humans and moderns, need a more careful, deliberate pace to be able to understand what the words mean — and to experience the truth. Bible reading, and particularly meditation, is to be emotionally responsive.

For this reason, speed-reading and Bible-reading are a mismatch. When we have questions (as we often do) about the meaning of a word or phrase or sentence in context, we don’t just keep going to finish the reading, check the box, and move on. Rather, we need margin to pause and ponder. We need to give ourselves time and space to ask the questions that keep us from understanding, and then seek answers.

BE FED, NOT JUST INFORMED

Finally, another aspect of not just comprehending the text of Scripture, but also experiencing it, might be captured under the banner of Seek to be fed, not just informed.

In Meditation and Communion with God, Jack Davis waves the flag for “a more reflective and leisurely engagement with Scripture” in our day (20). According to Davis, the nature of modern life, and the “information overload” we have through television, smartphones, and endless new media “makes a slow, unhurried, and reflective reading of Scripture more vital than ever” (22).

Leisurely does not mean passive. Quality reading can be leisurely, and enjoyable, while at the same time being careful and active. In fact, the two belong together. An unhurried pace gives space for careful observation and rumination, while active reading demands a certain slowness.

Over time, as we come to know ourselves, we learn what kind of pace and approach is most conducive to feeding our souls, not just informing our minds — what pace helps us catch our emotional breath and find our spiritual balance for the day to come — how to gather a day’s portion of food for our souls. The mind often seems to work faster than the heart. A faster pace might stimulate the mind, while a slower pace gives room to satisfy the soul.

Push Back Against the Tide

Ask yourself, How hurried are my devotions? Do you prioritize a daily season (early morning proves best for most) for unhurried Bible meditation and prayer? And have you learned to move at the pace of the text, or do you feel the pressure to do your devotions at the pace of modern life?

In our world of speed and acceleration, what good will it do the Christian soul, and our love for others, as we learn to push back against the tides of this world, and its patterns of hurry, with a life-giving daybreak routine of catching our breath by breathing in the breath of God, and breathing out to him in prayer?

This may be one of the most countercultural things you can do: go to bed without a screen, get up early, grab a paper Bible, put your phone aside, and let the voice of God in the Scriptures fill your mind and heart at his pace, not the world’s.

God has given you permission to slow down.

Favorite Scripture

Galatians 2:20

I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God,
who loved me, and gave himself for me.

Mary Sue was born in Savannah, TN, May 2, 1945. Her grandmother was a Choctaw Indian medicine woman. The lineage was to come down to her, but God had other ideas.

She was saved at an early age growing up at the East End Methodist Church in Savannah. In her early life she received frequent dreams, vision, and supernatural encounters with the Lord.

She met David Davis in high school and her grandmother prophesied, “This is the man you will marry.” Her mother prophesied that should would become a preacher and enlighten many.

Mary Sue is married to David Davis. They just celebrated their 48th wedding anniversary. They grew up together and grew in the Lord. David is a singer and moves in many of the gifts of the Lord including, pastor, counselor, prophetic worship. David sang professionally in his 20’s in gospel music with the Imperials, Happy Goodman Family, Blackwood Brothers, Speer Family, Rambo’s etc., in concerts throughout the Mid South.

Mary Sue and David have one son, Sean, who works in the media/film industry.

Evangelist Terry Thompson

 

Terry Thompson was born and raised in the North West of England, saved at the age of 18. At the age of 20 he preached for the first time to a group of Palestinians in Israel and in 1980, he came out into full-time service.

Terry has been involved with evangelism, singing and preaching the full gospel all over England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. He has worked in tent revivals, town halls and churches and in 1980, he got his first invite to minister in Kentucky and Ohio.

This opened the doors to other countries, such as Canada, Poland, Spain, Philippines, New Zealand, Australia, El Salvador, and México. When communism started to break down in eastern Europe, Terry had a team that took semi-trucks of aid into the Romania churches.

Terry has been called an encourager of the brethren and loves to give hope to the down trodden. Ministering under a seer’s mantle the Lord has given him dreams and sent him to foreign lands to prophesy what he has seem in the spirit realm for groups and individuals.

Terry and his wife Shirley currently reside in Alabama and continue to share Jesus in local nursing homes and special church events in their area. Terry was ordained through Firestorm Ministries, Int’l in 2015. He is currently leading an online forum and is looking forward to sharing the gospel throughout the world.


Evangelist Terry Thompson

 

Come and join in with us on this last night of the conference. Isn’t it time to stir the flames in your heart and create an altar for Yahweh’s Fire to fall upon? Don’t let this opportunity pass by.
