BY HIS STRIPES...

I was raised in, and spent much time in what people call the “name it and claim it” arena. I’ve often heard the “by His stripes we are healed” scripture used to demand healing. This passage of Holy Scripture has been taken completely out of context and off subject. Because of this error, the Creator looks weak to satan and looks like a liar. IF, as they claim, we WERE healed, then we would NEVER get sick because our God does not lie and is much more powerful than Satan. So, what is being said in this Biblical statement?

WILDERNESS EXPERIENCE

Deuteronomy 29:5-6
"And I have led you forty years in the wilderness. Your clothes have not worn out on you, and your sandals have not worn out on your feet. You have not eaten bread, nor have you drunk wine or similar drink, that you may know that I am the Lord your God."

The church today feels that we should not go through wilderness times in our lives. I’m not sure where they get that from Scripture. They act like wilderness times is like a punishment, but it's a growing period for us. I read that God WILL TAKE US INTO wilderness times, but He will not leave us. He will provide for us so what we can know who He is - Jehovah Jireh. When I read Scripture, I read that He shows Himself while we are with the lions, and He walks with us when we are in the fire. And because we know God, we will fear no evil when we are in that valley. Read More…

YOU KNOW BY THE SYMPTOMS

When we get up in the morning and we have that sore throat, light headed, stuffed up, feverish feeling, we know we must be coming down with the flu. The stuffy nose is not the flu, nor is the fever; the sore throat is not it and the light headed feeling is not the flu: these are merely symptoms that tells us there is an issue going on in our body. There’s not much we can do for the flu, so we take drugs to cover the symptoms and help us forget we have a bad condition.

In 2 Timothy chapter 3, Paul gives a depiction of the church in the end days; the days we are in today. He gives a series of symptoms: “lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,...”. Paul then tells why they have these symptoms, their spiritual condition - Lovers of pleasure more than lovers of God. Read More…

CHANGE OF CIRCUMSTANCES

Most of you are praying for God to change your circumstances - God’s busy trying to change you. Comply to God’s desire and your circumstances will change - but this will only happen through a knowledge of what God wants; and knowledge only comes by a diligent seeking of Him by a study of His Word.
