Isaiah 54:13 Amplified And all your [spiritual] children shall be disciples [taught by the Lord and obedient to His will], and great shall be the peace and undisturbed composure of your children. What a wonderful promise the Lord has made in this statement, that each of us would learn what was appropriate for our own journey and out of that we will have peace and undisturbed composure. How different that will make us appear to the rest of the world in its stress and striving, dominating and controlling, fear and anxiety, worry and unbelief. This is why there is such great need to be careful what we allow into our hearts and minds and who we listen to, what we watch and what authority and glory we place on other people. Indeed it must be such a burden on some of those so worshiped by man that it must cause the humble in among them great grief, I know it did me when I saw that if I had a public ministry I would take people away from worshiping the Savior of the World.
How much grief it must give our Creator God, that people see what Jesus did on the Cross was such a small thing in their eyes that they would worship people who did nothing for them. Being homeless in London and every now and then finding a bed in one of the many charities that abound here for such a business (it is big business here, £200 is given to these agencies when they pick you up off the streets) I have encountered all sorts of different views that other people have in regards to religion and Christianity. In one place they would pray for you to the saints that have gone before us, this is extremely puzzling to me, it is the same as my praying to you, a normal person as am I, for the salvation of the earth. You are not every where, you do not know all things, your perceptions are limited to being a single human being and we will be learning for the rest of eternity, so why would I pray or take heed to such a limited being? Only the Holy Spirit is in all places at all times and only the Father in heaven can see all that is before, all that is, and all that is to come. Why would I waste my time looking to you for? or you to me? or to the saints who have died and who still only have one limited spirit in comparison to the Holy Spirit, when they die? When those that prayed to the departed saints did so for me all that I saw was the statues of stone that represented who these wonderful people were. It is the same as though you are worshiping and serving false gods. Deuteronomy 4:28 Amplified There you will serve gods, the work of men’s hands, wood and stone, which neither see nor hear nor eat nor smell. For my part I am so grateful for what these beautiful souls did while they were on the earth for their allotted time here, and when I go past a church or a holy place I give thanks to the Father for any aspect of heaven that anyone who is a part of that place now and in the past has brought to the earth, by way of good works done in faith and love and joy. Then I stand in the gap and ask that what ever missed the mark of Gods perfection would be under the blood of the Lamb who died for the sin of the world and blown away by the breathe of the Holy Spirit and I watch as a dark cloud of sin disappear. Sometimes I have to name the sins of emotions first, malice, control, domination, discord, etc and then the physical sins that might have occurred. Then listening to the Holy Spirit without judgement for the ones so caught in sin, for it is only by grace that I am saved through the faith the Father has gifted me with I release the place to the will of heaven and what the Father wants in that place, no point in cleaning it out if you do not fill it with Gods will, so bless to peace, grace, revelations of heaven and Gods will, what ever God puts in my heart at that place and time.
1 John 2:2 Amplified And He [that same Jesus Himself] is the propitiation (the atoning sacrifice) for our sins, and not for ours alone but also for [the sins of] the whole world.
Prayer: Father God we come humbly before you now Oh Lord of hosts and ask that you bless us with insight and understanding about the place each of us stands at this moment, Father please reveal to us the sins of the past that might hold this region or place to the will of another entity besides you. We stand in the gap and confess before you any and all sins that you reveal to us now and cover these sins with the blood of the Lamb and lay it at the Cross of Christ Jesus who died for such things as this, we ask for forgiveness for these works and the people who committed them and pray that by the breathe of your Holy Spirit you will blow away these works as dust. Replace this dust Lord with Your will and grace, that joy and love and laughter would reside there In Jesus Name we ask. Amen.
