One of Satan’s primary tools to use against us is discouragement.
Bill Anderson told the story about the day the devil decided to go out of business. He decided to have a sale in which he would sell off the tools of his trade.
“On the night of the sale, the devil’s tools were all attractively displayed. Malice, hate, jealousy, greed, sensuality, and deceit were among them. To the side lay a harmless wedge-shaped tool, which had been used much more than any of the rest.
Someone asked the devil, What’s that? Its priced so high.
The devil answered, That’s discouragement.
But why is it priced so much higher than all the other tools? the onlooker persisted.
Because, replied the devil, with that tool I can pry open and get inside a person’s consciousness when I couldn’t get near him with any of the others. Once discouragement gets inside, I can let all the other tools do their work.”
How do we fight against the devil’s tactics? By being aware of his attempts to discourage us and refusing to accept them. Whether we are discouraged in our church, our job or in our own personal lives, it is never a good thing, and we can be certain Satan is probably behind it. I’m not saying that every time you get discouraged Satan is behind it, but the odds are very good that he is. The next time you’re discouraged; examine the reason you’re discouraged, you might be surprised.
Discouragement comes from the devil.
Discouragement never comes from God. Continue reading
What’s Coming Next?
As we look around us, with the Coronavirus Pandemic going on we see people living in fear and anxiety and looking to the goverments for answers. If a virus can cause such panic in the world, imagine how it will be when the anticipated rapture happens. (All prophecies to be fulfilled before the rapture has taken place; the rapture is the next prophetic event to occur.) Millions of people will suddenly be gone. Those that don’t recognize it as the rapture will be looking for answers. They will be looking to their country’s leaders for guidance. With the different governments enacting controls on their people with this virus, it is easy to see how the world governments could come together to solve the problems the rapture will cause and when one man (The Antichrist) will seem to have the answers, he will be pushed into the spotlight.
Do you have questions about the future? I published a book last year where I addressed the prophecies and world events that led us to where we are today and what is coming next. “The Rapture: Coming Soon,” I priced it as low as Amazon would allow me. The e-book is only $.99 cents and the paperback is $4.99. All profits from my books go to The Jesus Film Project. I do not write for profit, but to serve God and hopefully help people have a closer walk with the Lord..
The Christian Life should not be a burden, nor should one feel like it is a duty or obligation. Living the Christian life should be an absolute joy even when facing life’s difficulties.
This book is basic enough to equip the new Christian, yet deep enough that all will benefit from it. It will answer your questions and strengthen your faith. It is like fourteen books in one, covering topics like:
- Proof the Bible is God’s divine word, true and accurate.
- Proof Jesus lived, was crucified, and rose again.
- You can know for sure you are going to heaven.
- All about angels.
- Satan, demons, and the invisible war.
- Living a joy filled life.
- Understanding and living in God’s grace.
- The significance of the blood.
- Love – the greatest mark of a Christian.
- Understanding the Trinity.
- What will heaven be like?
- Daniel’s amazingly accurate prophecies.
- The Great Commission.
- The absolute power of prayer!
Profit from this book goes to support the Jesus Film Ministry.
Supernatural Facts of the Bible proving the Scriptures were God inspired
The Ark’s design was thousands of years ahead of its time. (Genesis 6:14-16) The Ark was to be 450 feet long, 75 feet wide, and 45 feet high. It was to have three decks with a combined area of 101,250 square feet, and a capacity of over one and a half million cubic feet. It was a vessel of over 43,000 tons, and nearly equal in size to the Titanic.
In 1609 a Holland company built a ship after the pattern of the Ark. It revolutionized the shipbuilding industry. Today most ships are still built to similar proportions. There is no way that Noah would have had the knowledge to build the Ark, without the divine instructions from God. The vessel that Noah built was very different and much larger than boats of that era. The boats of Noah’s time were small flat-bottomed boats powered by oars or a combination of oars and a fixed sail.
In comparison, the Ark that Noah built would be much closer in design and size to the Titanic, than to the boats of his time. Continue reading
