The devil cannot create anything… he is the great counterfeit. Condemnation is the counterfeit of conviction. Condemnation puts you down, like "You stupid idiot, you are lame you better not try again." But conviction says "I made a mistake, I better make it right." Conviction builds you up!!!

To the pure all things are pure, but to those who are defiled and unbelieving nothing is pure; but even their mind and conscience are defiled. They profess to know God, but in works they deny Him, being abominable, disobedient, and disqualified for every good work.

For >>>>no other<< foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ. (1 Corinthians 3:11)

This observation by the apostle Paul warns Christians that it is possible to build either successfully or with awful failure on the foundation that Jesus Christ has laid for us. You also may recall that the Lord Jesus Himself warned about building a house on the rock versus on the sand (Matthew 7:24-27). A house built on the rock of the sayings of God would stand against the storms that would come. That which was built on the “sand” of human wisdom would suffer a disastrous collapse.<<<

There may not be much Gasoline in town, but there's probably plenty of Water : Perhaps we'll see a line of people waiting for you to Baptize families Into a New Life with GOD. The Old ways of life for many have ended with these disasters. Unable to stop the time, maybe they will be encouraged to Live Out the Rest of their Lives According to The Spirit; receiving Peace as their Immediate Reward and Everlasting Life as their Eternal Reward.

AMEN. What an Awesome Time to Be Alive. Look Around: The Fruits have been shaken from their trees. You both are smack dab in the Middle of The Biggest Harvest of Souls this Generation has seen (so far) ! People have FEMA to provide them with Natural Resources and Assistance; whereas, GOD's "Church" aka "us"..WE are GOD's Emergency Response Team: Providing Spiritual and Emotional assistance by sharing The Good News of GOD's Kingdom with them. Worldly Peace vanishes when material possessions lay in ruin; The Peace Jesus provides exists in the midst of any Natural Disaster. We are GOD's Chosen Light Houses Created to Shine into this present Darkness. The Harvest is Plentiful but the Laborers are Few 🙏👆 GOD Bless you

Most of us have a desire for God's Kingdom and His righteousness, but it is, to our detriment, frequently nebulous rather than sharp. When the time comes to make a>>>> choice, we are not prepared to make the required effort or >>>sacrifice that the righteousness of God demands. It is situations like these that reveal that we do not desire righteousness more than anything else.
Love u guys bud and whit

When I first rededicated myself to the Lord, a war for my ears and my heart raged in me. So much fear and condemnation came at me. An aggressive voice reminded me of my past and how filthy I was. It seemed like I was being tormented day and night, and I didn't know what to do.

At that time, I came across II Corinthians 10:5, which instructs us to take every thought captive. I used this passage to answer the accusations and condemnation coming at me constantly.

You have to get to a point where you no longer fight with your strength, words or knowledge, but you run into the arms of the only one you can trust – God. Not yourself, your money, your brain, your knowledge, your friends. God is the only one where you can put all your trust!

In order to hear God's voice, you have to make the decision to trust Him fully. After all, He is the safe place you seek. He is the greatest source of wisdom!

What I began to do in those early days, when I was just learning how to hear His voice, is a very simple strategy. I began to take every thought captive and make it obedient to Christ. I said these words: "God, if this thought is from You, I receive it. If it is not, Satan I rebuke you."

So when those thoughts would come – "You're a loser, you're a failure, you can't do anything right. You're going to lose your companies. You're a fake. You're a terrible wife and mother." – I would say those words. "God, if this is from You, I receive it. If not, then Satan I rebuke you. Go back to hell where you belong!"

THAT is how you take every thought captive and helped me learn how to hear His voice. Even when I wasn't sure whose voice I was hearing, this strengthened my discernment.

Soon, I began hearing different words. "You are loved. You are precious to me. You are my daughter and I am your Father." So, again I said the same words. "God, if this is from You, I receive it. If not, then Satan I rebuke you."

I would hear messages of <3, safety and acceptance, as well as messages of rejection and condemnation. But I learned to recognize whose voice was talking to me, and I received what was from #God and rejected what was coming from the enemy – or even from myself
