Agreement With God

Scripture:  1 John 1 v 1 - 3:  "That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life;
2  (For the life was manifested, and we have seen it, and bear witness, and shew unto you that eternal life, which was with the Father, and was manifested unto us;)
3  That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ."

Let us agree with God our Father that He is real!  The Bible is His Word, and the Word is His Son, Jesus Christ, who was sent to this Earth to reveal the love and goodness of God.  

To be in agreement with God it is essential to be out of agreement with the world, and the views of those who are still part of the world.  Everyone in the world who is not born again is part of the enemy camp, the camp is controlled by Satan.

The Kingdom of God and the Kingdom of Satan are at perpetual war.  Satan has set his sights on ruling the universe by overthrowing the Throne of God.  God's Kingdom is filled with light, truth, love, peace, life,  kindness, goodness, patience and faith.

Satan's Kingdom is filled with darkness, lies, hatred, murder, death, disease, malice, spite, venom, corruption, theft, underhand dealings, and religion that denies Jesus Christ is Lord.

The enemy cleverly disguises himself as someone wise, genuine and with understanding until those who follow him are ensnared in false and fake lifestyles they have to conceal from any rightful authority.  Most people think Satan is a myth and often talk of demons as some kind of meltdown affecting famous people, sportspersons, or the like.  

"He really needs to overcome the demons in his head when on the tennis court/cricket pitch, to win at this level." Or, "She needs to go into rehab, those demons have got her drinking again!"  This is all true but is spoken as just some affliction that can be cured medically or psychologically.

The reality is that only Jesus Christ, risen from the dead, has power over demon spirits.  Only He can totally defeat them.  He has given us His authority, and to use His name, to overcome all evil.   However, we must be in agreement with God, in submission to Jesus to be effective warriors.  Not like the sons of Sceva who attempted to deliver a demon-possessed man by invoking the name of Jesus, whom Paul preaches.  The demon said, Jesus  I know, and Paul I have heard of but who are you?  And he leaped on them and they were left naked and wounded.  They had no agreement with God to use the name of Jesus.

Christians belong to God and are citizens of Heaven from the moment they are born again.  There is no other way to get to Heaven.  Christians are called saints when their names are written in the Lamb's Book of Life.  This is their passport and visa into God's Kingdom.

The world is not the Earth.  The Earth is the planet God chose to beautify and make inhabitable for mankind.  It produces the food and water and air that sustains life.  We are here to be brought back to life through the Blood of Jesus and forgiveness of sin.  Our lives are hid with Christ in God, and we are His ambassadors.

The world is Satan's system for controlling the citizens of his kingdom, called sinners.  He must prevent at all costs letting them hear the Gospel of Jesus Christ and be saved.  He knows every word in the Bible and brainwashed his subjects with the very opposite.  As the time of the end draws nearer so the gap between truth and lies widens.

A few days ago the second book of Harbinger was released.  Called "The Return" it has brought many Americans to their knees, showing how that nation has lost its way spiritually and is facing harsh judgment from God.  Thousands responded to the call for repentance and the videos can be seen on You Tube.  Sinners were running through the streets to meet those who would pray for them.  God is calling the world to repent and be saved.

With the Arab nations starting to make peace with Israel, the day is approaching when the Seven Year Peace Treaty between Israel and ALL Arab nations will be signed.  The seven year tribulation period will start at that same moment.  We are having a curtain-raiser in 2020 with Covid19 claiming 1,000,000 global deaths this week, also making it 500,000 in the past 3 months.  It is not slowing down.  It has turned the world upside down.

If we are in agreement with our God we know that everything is unfolding as it should.  Whether we live or die from Covid19 we will spend eternity with Jesus.  These are the things He said would come just before His return to Earth.  We have a high expectancy of His soon arrival and I urge everyone to tell whoever you can reach that its time to be ready for rescue.

Prayer:  Heavenly Father, we are in total agreement with You and with every word in the Bible.  It is truth and no lie and we believe it and do what it says to keep our lives in harmony with You.  Help us reach the lost in this world and change their destination when the end comes.  In Jesus' name.  Amen.
