Ephesians 4:11-12(NKJV) 11And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some
evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, 12 for the equipping of
the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ,

Romans 8:31 (NKJV) 31What then shall we say
to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?
James 4:6 (NKJV) 6But He gives more
grace. Therefore He says: “God resists the proud, But gives grace to the humble.”

Dear friends, if God is for us
who can be against us? If God is with us we do not have to be afraid of
anything or anyone. BUT if God is against us then there is nothing more
terrible then that.

When can God be against us?

Jonah 1:4 (NKJV) 4But the Lord sent out a great wind on the sea,
and there was a mighty tempest on the sea, so that the ship was about to be
broken up.

God came against [He sent a
great wind against Jonah] Jonah who was very narrow minded, and refused to go
where God wanted him to go [disobedience]. God came against His own prophet who
disobeyed HIM. God can come against us when we live in disobedience. [He is a
Loving Father and a Holy Father]

Who sent the Assyrians and the
Babylonians against the Old Testament church? Or Let me say it a different way.
Who allowed the Assyrians and Babylonians to come against Israel? It was God.
God opposed the proud Old Testament church [Israel].

Why? They were idolatrous,
immoral, wicked, exploited, murderous, and narrow-minded.

If we follow the example of the
Old Testament church then we will experience the opposing hand of God. [Do not
forget that HE is a loving Father who disciplines]

Genesis 11:7-8 (NKJV) 7Come, let Us go down
and there confuse their language, that they may not understand one another’s
speech.” 8 So the Lord scattered them abroad from there over the face of all the earth, and they
ceased building the city.

Who scattered and came against
a people who were united and working together? God.

That is right; God is the one
who came against a people who were united and working together. Why?

They were working against God.
They were very proud and wanted to make a name for themselves. They were
building a monument. That is why God opposed them.

James 4:6 (NKJV) 6But He gives more grace.
Therefore He says: “God resists the proud, But gives grace to the humble.”

James 4:6 (NJB) 6 But he has given us an even greater grace, as scripture says: God opposes the
proud but he accords his favour to the humble.

today history is repeating itself. Today’s church [generally speaking] has not
learned its lesson. Many still want to make a name for themselves. They promote
themselves and their church. The true church of Jesus Christ will be working
together with the Father just like the Son of God did. Those who want to make a
name for themselves will exploit and use people. They will be concern about
their programs and projects. They want the people to support their programs and
projects. They will control and manipulate people using the scriptures to turn
the hearts of the people towards themselves. But those who work together with
the Father has the Love [Agape (uncondional love which comes from God)] of the
Father and do everything because Agape Love moves them. They love people and
care for people [first those who are part of the “Body of Christ” and then to
those who are not yet part of the “Body of Christ”].

Let us
humble ourselves and work together with God [The Father, Son and Holy Spirit
work together] and His People.

People might not be from the same local church, institution, organisation,
denomination. They might not even see things the way you see. They might be in
different levels of faith. They might be rich or poor. They might smell good or
bad. They might be men or women. As long as they follow footsteps of Jesus The
Christ [Yeshua Hamashiah / Isa Almasi ] they are God’s people.

Anti-Christ spirit.
we do not work with God we are against God. When we are against God we are anti

The Holy Spirit who has been sent from the Father continue to work inside of us
and change us to be like the Son of God.

we are a faith ministry. We also need help from other members of the “Body of
Christ” so that we can help others rise up and fulfil God’s purpose and bring
glory to HIS Name. We need you and you need us to fulfil God’s purpose. When
you are lead by the Father to give towards our living and ministry then send it

The Opposing Spirit

Francis is saying the same thing I was saying. Same Spirit I believe is speaking.

The Land Beneath Our Feet
by Francis Frangipane
(En EspaƱol)

As a speaker in citywide and regional
prayer conferences, I am often asked to unmask the "spiritual power" opposing
the body of Christ in the conference region. City leaders and intercessors have
even asked if I knew the "name" of the principle spirit that is resisting the
church in their area.

"Do you want to know the name of the most powerful
spirit opposing most Christians?" I ask. Eager faces respond affirmatively.

"It’s Yahweh."

My questioners, who suddenly look like a tree
full of owls, are always bewildered by my answer. They are sure I misunderstood
their question. Then, I explain. I remind them that, according to the
Scriptures, "God is opposed to the proud, but gives grace to the humble" (James
4:6). So, if we are divided in our hearts from other churches, if we
instinctively look down on other Christians or if we are at all self-promoting
in attitude, we are walking in pride. As such, the Spirit that stands to resist
our endeavors is not demonic; it’s God.

The son of a top Hamas leader has converted

The son of a top Hamas leader has converted to
Christianity and prays
someday his family will also accept Jesus Christ as
their savior, an
Israeli newspaper reported.

Masab Yousef, son of West Bank Hamas leader Sheik
Hassan Yousef,
revealed for the first time in an exclusive interview
with Haaretz
newspaper that he has left Islam and is now a
Christian. Prior to the
interview's publication last Thursday, Yousef's family
did not know of
his faith conversion even though he is in regular
contact with them.

'[T]his interview will open many people's eyes, it will
shake Islam
from the roots, and I'm not exaggerating,' Yousef, who
now resides in
the United States, said. 'What other case do you know
where a son of a
Hamas leader, who was raised on the tenets of extremist
Islam, comes
out against it?'

Yousef, who is now 30-years-old, was first exposed to
eight years ago while in Jerusalem where out of
curiosity he accepted
an invitation to hear about Christianity. Afterwards,
he became
'enthusiastic' about what he heard and would secretly
read the Bible
every day.

'A verse like 'Love thine enemy' had a great influence
on me,' Yousef
recalled. 'At this stage I was still a Muslim and I
thought that I
would remain one. But every day I saw the terrible
things done in the
name of religion by those who considered themselves
'great believers.'

'I studied Islam more thoroughly and found no answers
there. I
re-examined the Koran and the principals of the faith
and found how it
is mistaken and misleading.'

But with Christianity, Yousef said he could understand
God as revealed
through Jesus Christ. He said he could talk about God
and Jesus for
days, but Muslims are not able to say anything about

'I consider Islam a big lie,' said the son of one of
Hamas' founders.
'The people who supposedly represent the religion
admired Mohammed
more than God, killed innocent people in the name of
Islam, beat their
wives and don't have any idea what God is. I have no
doubt that
they'll go to hell. I have a message for them: There is
only one way
to Paradise - the way of Jesus who sacrificed himself
on the cross for
all of us.'

Four years ago, Yousef decided to convert to
Christianity but did not
let his family know. He still helped his father with
his political
activities, and his father only knew his son had
Christian friends.

'I felt responsible. It was better for me to be there
rather than a
gang of fools who would poison his mind,' Yousef
explained. 'I tried
to understand those people, their thoughts, in order to
change them
from inside by means of a strong person like my father,
who admitted
to me in the past that he does not support suicide

Yousef described his father as a moderate Hamas leader..

But even before his encounter with Christianity, Yousef
had already
become disenchanted with Hamas and Islam while being
imprisoned at the
age of 18 years old for heading a youth Islamic
movement at his high

He described the Hamas leaders he met in prison as
people with 'no
morals' and 'no integrity,' although they hide their
corruption better
than Fatah party members.

'Nobody knows them and how they operate as well as I
do,' Yousef said,
recalling how the family of Hamas members killed by
Israel were forced
to beg for financial assistance while the leadership
'abandoned' them
and 'wasted' tens of thousands of dollars a month only
on security for

'Then (in prison) I understood that not everyone in
Hamas is like my
father. He's a nice, friendly man. But I discovered how
evil his
colleagues are,' Yousef said. 'After my release I lost
the faith I had
in those who ostensibly represented Islam.'

Hamas is considered a terrorist group by the United
States, Israel,
and many Western countries. The group has publicly
vowed to destroy

Now Yousef, the eldest son of Sheikh Yousef, says he
'admires' Israel.

'You Jews should be aware: You will never, but never
have peace with
Hamas,' Yousef stated. 'Islam, as the ideology that
guides them, will
not allow them to achieve a peace agreement with the
Jews. They
believe that tradition says that the Prophet Mohammed
fought against
the Jews and that therefore they must continue to fight
them to the

He denounced the 'entire' Palestinian society as one
that 'sanctifies
death and the suicide terrorist.'

'In Palestinian culture a suicide terrorist becomes a
hero, a martyr.
Sheiks tell their students about the 'heroism of the

Yousef highlighted that Hamas was the first to use
suicide bombers as
weapons against civilians.

'They (Hamas) are blind and ignorant. It's true, there
are good and
bad people everywhere, but Hamas supporters don't
understand that they
are led by a wicked and cruel group that brainwashes
the children and
gets them to believe that if they carry out a suicide
attack they'll
get to Paradise,' he said.

The Muslim-turned-Christian says he does not think
Islam will survive
for more than 25 years because the truth about Islam
will be exposed
given the mass communication available in the modern

For his part, Yousef says he hopes to 'open the eyes'
of Muslims and
'reveal the truth' to them about Islam and Christianity
with the goal
to 'take them out of the darkness and the prison of

'In that way they'll have an opportunity to correct
their mistakes, to
become better people and to bring a chance for peace in
the Middle
East,' he said.

Yousef, who has taken the biblical name of Joseph, said
he dreams of
one day becoming a writer to tell his personal story
and about the
Middle East conflicts.

'But at the moment, at least, my ambitions are only to
find work, a
place to live,' Yousef admits. 'I have no money, I have
no apartment,'
said the son of the Hamas leader who left behind
properties in
Ramallah to find true freedom. 'I was about to become
one of those
homeless people [in the United States],' he confessed,
'but people
from the church are helping me. I'm dependent on them.'

He also dreams that someday he can return to his
homeland and his
family will accept Jesus Christ.

'I know that I'm endangering my life and am even liable
to lose my
father, but I hope that he'll understand this and that
God will give
him and my family patience and willingness to open
their eyes to Jesus
and to Christianity,' Yousef said. 'Maybe one day I'll
be able to
return to Palestine and to Ramallah with Jesus, in the
Kingdom of God.

For you were made in my image.

you were made in my image.
1:27 (NKJV) 27 So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female
He created them.

the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. While all that He made
was good, something deep in His heart was not yet satisfied. So on the 6th day,
God created man in His own image.. We read in Genesis 2:7 that He breathed into man’s
nostrils the breathe of life.
close must God have been to Adam, to actually breathe into His nostrils? What a
tender moment that must have been, as Adam took his first breathe, opened up
his eyes only to see the loving gaze of his Father calling him to life. We are
not gods, nor will we ever be gods, but we were made in the image of our
Creator. Within each person, there lies a divine DNA imprint that comes from
God alone.
are God’s children and we have been created to reflect His image. When I look
at my own daughter, I can see a little of myself in her. It brings me great joy
to see a part of me reflected in her. What joy it must bring to the Father’s
heart, when He can see His own likeness being mirrored in us.
was the exact representation of His Father (Hebrews 1:3) and came to show us
what His Father was really like. We have the privilege of having the fullness
of the Godhead dwelling in our mortal bodies too! What character traits of
Father do you have in your life? Do you have His smile? His touch? His laugh?
The next time you look in a mirror, look for the Father in your reflection, for
He created you in His own image.
Father, I thank You that I was created in Your image. Help me to see the
reflection of Your beauty in my life. Thank You for sustaining me by Your
divine DNA imprint in my life. May Your likeness, and the likeness of your Son,
be reflected in all that I am, and all that I do. In the name of your beloved
Son, Jesus, I pray, Amen.

I know when you sit down and when you rise up

know when you sit down and when you rise up.
Psalm 139:2 (NKJV) 2 You know my sitting
down and my rising up; You understand my thought afar off.

Father God is intimately aware of all that you do.
He knows when you sit down and when you rise up. He even knows what you are
thinking. Your Heavenly Father is intimately involved in every area of your
life no matter how insignificant you think it is.
He is with you when you go to work. He is there
when you play, and He watches over you when you sleep. He will never leave you
or forsake you, for He has promised to stay close. Have you ever wondered why
the God of the universe would take the time to be interested in such detail? It
is simply because He loves you! And because He loves you, no task that you set
out to do is too mundane for Father to take notice of.
God may be seated on His throne in heaven,
majestically overseeing the entire universe, but He still is watching over you.
Just as a father sitting in an easy chair, enjoys watching His children playing
at his feet, Father always maintains a watchful eye over us. He is not
pre-occupied managing His creation, for His omnipresence allows him to be
everywhere all at once. So take great comfort in knowing that He is always with
you. He knows when you sit down and when you rise up and He knows your every
thought even before you think it.
Father, You know everything about me. You watch over me 24 hours a day. I thank
You that Your extravagant love reaches out to me even in the very mundane
aspects of my daily routine. I pray that as I go about my business today, I
will be reminded of the truth that in Your eyes, I am still just a little
child, playing at Your feet while You oversee the affairs of the universe. In
the name of your beloved Son, Jesus, I pray. Amen.


am familiar with all your ways.
Psalm 139:3
(NKJV) 3 You comprehend my path and my lying down, And are
acquainted with all my ways.

Hebrew word for familiar, “biyn”, means to be acquainted with or to intimately
understand. Father God is familiar with all our ways, which means He is fully
acquainted with us and He intimately understands all that we are and all that
we do.
thought of intimacy causes many of us to be very uncomfortable with God, for we
are not even comfortable with ourselves. Our minds can't even comprehend this
kind of depth of His intimacy and acceptance. He is familiar with all our ways,
and yet He still desires to be our Father. This kind of love surpasses anything
that we have ever experienced or anything that we could ever possibly hope for
or imagine. However, it is a two way street.
as much as Father knows us, He wants us to begin to know Him, to become
familiar (biyn) with all His ways. Father desires intimacy with His children.
He sees us for who we really are, yet He loves us. He wants us to see Him for
who He really is, and to allow Him to father us perfectly. Jesus and the Father
shared in this type of intimacy. In John 17:10, Jesus prayed these words to His
Father, All I have is yours and all you have is mine. Theirs was an interaction
of hearts that was completely given to each other without reserve.
we receive Jesus Christ, we enter into the same relationship that Jesus has
with His Father because we are now in Christ. Jesus died so that all we might
share in this incredible relationship with His Father. Will we begin to yield
all that we are over to the One who wants to give us all that He has? I think
we are getting the better end of the bargain! To become intimate, requires
vulnerability. God understands our fear so that is why He risked first. He made
the first move when He gave up everything He had to win our hearts. He emptied
the bank when He sacrificed His only Son so that we might know Him.
not respond to this ultimate gesture of love by beginning to risk a deeper
relationship with your Father? Intimacy with God begins with us lowering our
defences simply to allow God to into-me-see.
Father I thank You for being familiar with all my ways. I believe that You
intimately understand everything about me, yet You still love me
unconditionally. Today I want to begin to lower my own defences and lay down my
pre-conceived ideas of who you are. I want to know You Father. I want to begin
to see into Your heart and to become familiar with all Your ways. In the name
of your beloved Son, Jesus, I pray. Amen.
