Asking vs Begging God

Our previous letter was about the authority we have in Christ.

 The conclusion was that every day we do not do the works of God the way Jesus would have done it, is a waste of our time.

One of the biggest obstacles to my personal authority was because of John 14.

John 14:13-14:  “And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If ye shall ask anything in my name, I will do it.” 

In the 12th verse, Jesus says that we will do greater works than He did.

I wonder how many people reading these verses have asked and not received.

The Strong’s number For the word ASK is “G154” and it means beg, require, and crave.

This must be why the Afrikaans Bible uses the words beg and pray. It should be noted that Jesus never begged the Father. In Joh_16:23, “in that day ye shall ask Me nothing,”

I have had a personal experience where I begged God to help one of my children but God rebuked me. He told me that I am a joint heir with Jesus, a son of God. Sons don’t beg their Fathers for things.

After studying this verse out I found that the Greek meaning of the word

‘ask’ has a few different meanings. It can mean ‘beg’ but it can also be DEMAND. I would suggest that you study this out for yourself in the Vines translation. I also know that someone has written a book about it because it turned into a great discourse.

If we put all the different scriptural contexts together about who we are in Christ, the word ‘beg’ has no place in the prayers of believers.

Jesus took all the sins of the world upon himself and crucified them on the cross so that we would do the works that He did on the earth. In Mark 11:23 we are told to speak to the mountain of problems, we would command it to throw itself in the sea. We are not told to beg God for anything. The sons and the daughters of God lay hands on the sick and they shall recover. Mark 16.

God is a good God! He wants our Earth to be like Heaven. God wants us to take authority over our circumstances. We do this by telling circumstances what the Word of God says about us. God is not talking to circumstances anymore. We must do it!

What is your take on this? Start the discussion below!

Until next month!

Why are my prayers unanswered?

July 2022

Feeling like our prayers go unanswered is one of the main reasons Christians get discouraged and lose their faith in God. You don’t know what could be wrong? How can God not fulfill His own promises? The Word says that God forgives our sins and heals our diseases, no pest or plague shall come near us, no evil shall befall us and so many other scriptures with the same promises. My own question was why did I have to undergo the humiliation of that operation if I was believing for my healing?

Yes, the operation I went through did come with its own set of testimonies and wonderful mercy and grace which I can testify of, but still, the question remains: Why did I not receive my healing?

First I must hold before you Romans 8:17: “Although we share in the glory of Christ we also share in His suffering.”

The hardships we go through cause us to grow spiritually. We grow according to the increase of the knowledge of God in us. In my own case the long sick bed and operation I faced caused me to grow in the knowledge of Christ in me.

I had a vision after coming out of the theater. I saw Jesus dancing with happiness. He kept on dancing and as I watched it seemed like his face transformed into the face of my brother who died years ago. My brother and I looked very much alike. As Jesus kept on dancing and twirling, his face kept changing back and forth into his own face and then into my brother’s face. After this vision, I was led to understand that I am in Christ and He is in me. The day that this knowledge of Christ in me is revealed to the children of God it is a glorious day in heaven! That is why Jesus was so happy and dancing.  At last, Christ has come in you! This is the purpose of our life on earth! (Gal 2:20, Col 3:3)

When I use communion in the morning I see my Old Self crucified on the cross, just like Jesus sacrificed himself for me, to die daily. Then I rise with Him too, it is no longer I who live but Christ in me! ‘I am hid in Christ’. My life is hidden in Christ, I do what He did. I lay my hands on the sick and they are healed. (Mark 16) I speak to the Mountain and it is removed and thrown into the sea! Nothing shall be impossible to me. (Matt. 7) I am the righteousness of Christ, for I am in Christ. This is what we are meant to do on the earth.

Every day that we are not living and acting like Jesus did we are wasting our time on earth.

I took this all very seriously and meditated on it deeply. I know that this knowledge would not have materialized in me if it was not for the suffering. Furthermore, I still wanted to get answers from The Father. My question was why I did not receive my healing after asking Him to heal me? Jesus said in John 14 that we must ask the Father and He will give us what we ask. Still, I also prayed and spoke the Word of God continually as I know I have had success in speaking the Word before. Then again according to Mark 11:23 we should speak to the mountain. This felt so contradicting. I asked the Lord when should I ask and when should I speak?

After spending time in the Garden I heard the Holy Spirit say: If you don’t know what to do in a situation you ask for wisdom when you know what to do then you speak to the problem, like Mark 11:23-25.

Furthermore, I also learned WHERE you should speak to the problem. We use the Twelve Room prayer. (Click on this link for the free Prayer booklet) We use this prayer to enter into the outer Court where you die to our soulish nature and are washed with the blood of Jesus for a clean conscience. After this, we honor the Holy Spirit in the Holy Place and then move on to The Most Holy Place or the Throne of God where we come into the presence of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit in front of thousands of angels and the cloud of witnesses. (Heb 12:22)

Now in the Court of God is where I speak, while I am speaking and declaring the rivers of healing will start flowing from the Throne into the areas into which we are sending it.

In the Courts of God, we are citizens of heaven and fellow heirs of all things. Why would God give us entrance into His Courts if we are not meant to stand there and speak? Why are we given citizenship if we are not meant to be like Jesus? (Eph 2:6) We should speak in heavenly places where we are enthroned with Christ. Many people say we cannot send Angels around, but why does everything I declare in this way happen exactly as I say it should? Because the angels are meant to accomplish God’s Word.

David also mentions these Courts of God. The Courts (more than one) are different rooms of the Twelve Room Prayer into which we go to organize our thoughts and pray in tongues according to the subject of each room.

After receiving wisdom about my situation I go into the Courts of God and declare with Authority the Word of God, sending forth the Angels with the same power Jesus had and also gave us. We have been blessed with all spiritual blessings in the heavens in Christ Jesus. (Eph 1:3)

I hope this gives you a new perspective on growing up in Christ. Please comment and share your story.

Guarding our hearts daily

One of the most informative scriptures in the Bible is Genesis 6:5.

“And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.” 

God came down to earth to see the state of the heart of man, and He saw that the imaginations and thoughts of the heart of man were always evil. The result was that he ordered Noah to build the ark because He was going to wipe all evil from the face of the earth through a flood. This is how strong God feels about the conscience of man.

In the New Testament, God lives in the heart of man. We must love God with all our hearts, mind, soul and everything that is within us. In Psalm 21:2 God gives us the desire of our hearts. In Proverbs 4:23 we must guard our hearts above all else because all the issues of life come from it.

The miraculous part that is within all mankind is the imagination and thoughts of the heart. God provides for us according to the way we keep our hearts sin-free so that the heart is only His dwelling.

Many times in my life I have thought that we cannot pay the salaries this month because of a lack of funds, yet we have not even once not paid salaries on time. God has always provided. It is miraculous! It reminds me of the way Jesus held a hand full of fish and bread up to heaven, thanking the Father for the provision and the food multiplied in His hands as He gave it to five thousand people to eat their fill. Nothing is impossible to God! Here is a scripture that says that nothing shall be impossible to us.

Mat 17:20:  “For truly I say to you, If you have faith like a grain of mustard seed, you shall say to this mountain, Move from here to there. And it shall move. And nothing shall be impossible to you.”

When we hear of wars famine and souring petrol prices it could be that the slightest bit of worry comes into us. I would like to remind our readers that fear comes into the heart. The same heart that we gave to God becomes the dwelling of the stench of fear, after which follows all the other works of the flesh. Fear defiles the imaginations and thoughts of the heart. It is thorns in the garden of the heart that chokes the good harvest.

God provides for us according to the way we think.

Eph 3:20:  “Now unto him, that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us.”

But what power is within us? 

In the case of Job, we see that the thing he feared happened to him. Fear in the heart takes over the power of the heart to bring forth the things we fear.

Seen in this light we can see the importance of sanctification of the heart. We are all sinners, but we have a great high priest, Christ Jesus who sprinkles our hearts from an evil conscience. He cleanses our hearts when we use communion and washes it in pure water. Heb.10:22. This is when we can approach the throne of God with confidence and be sure that God will surely supply all your needs, exceedingly abundantly above all we could ask or think because He is the power present in the heart when we guard it above all else.

If it may be that you the reader are in desperate need. First, do introspection and ask the Holy Spirit to search your heart for sin. Now take communion and, crucify those negative things. When you are sure you have dealt with everything that is not of God, go and stand before the Almighty God and call the things you have need of as a son of God. Mark 11:23-25. Now remain in thanksgiving, receiving in the imagination and thoughts of the heart the things you need and give God the glory. You will have whatsoever you say you will have!

To help you along we have the Twelve Room Prayer. This free prayer booklet will help you organize your thoughts so you can be more productive in your prayer life.

We will also love to hear what you think about this topic. Please comment below.

Negative Emotions hinder the Blessings

In my own spiritual growth, the greatest breakthrough was when I learned that negative emotions caused God could not to bless me. Because God taught us this truth we spend our lives teaching people about it.

When we draw a horizontal line through the middle of a page we can write good emotions in the top half. Things like those written in Gal 5:22: “The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Against such things, there is no law.” 

In the bottom half, we write those negative things that are Gal 5:19-21:  “The acts of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity, and debauchery; idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions, and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God.”

These are the works of the flesh. If I allow these lower emotions like impatiens, fear, or worry into my heart then the lower emotions have come into the above.

The top half, above the line, is where my spirit is present, it is also my heart. It is also where we hope and imagine. Our hearts belong to God and we should love God with all our hearts. In other words; keep the below from coming above.

Proverbs 4:23:  “Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.”  NIV.

Strictly speaking, when the below come above, we have a sinful state in the heart, which God does not bless. God is a good God who wants to bless us with all the good things we can imagine. When the below comes above, our imaginations are not life-giving.

The above is the kingdom of God within us. It can be described as a garden in which seeds must be sown into. If we allow the below into the above it will be compared to corrupted seeds that are being planted and it brings forth thorns and thistles. We are now like Adam, we are not guarding the garden; not guarding the heart.

However, who can Guard the heart completely? Who can keep the below out of the above by themselves? There is no other way than to follow Jesus.

Luk 9:23:  “And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.” 

We take up our cross and we nail to the cross those sinful thoughts like worry, fear, and shame. We do this in the same way that Jesus was crucified, we also crucify the sinful man. We do this while using communion. When we crucify the flesh we eat the flesh of Christ. Then we drink the blood of Jesus which is a seal for our hearts and provides us with a blood-washed conscience. Heb.12:22.

The below can no longer come above, we are sealed with the blood of Jesus, now you can go ahead and have a great day while giving God thanks and praise.

This is the only way to stay above.

Deuteronomy 28:1-8  And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe and to do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that the LORD thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth. And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God. 

Blessed shalt thou be in the city, and blessed shalt thou be in the field. 

Blessed shall be the fruit of thy body, and the fruit of thy ground, and the fruit of thy cattle, the increase of thy kine, and the flocks of thy sheep. 

Blessed shall be thy basket and thy store. 

Blessed shalt thou be when thou comest in, and blessed shalt thou be when thou goest out. The LORD shall cause thine enemies that rise up against thee to be smitten before thy face: they shall come out against thee one way, and flee before thee seven ways.

 The LORD shall command the blessing upon thee in thy storehouses, and in all that thou settest thine hand unto; and he shall bless thee in the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.

Are you overcome by Fear?

A Person who have gone through our Alpha Omega Cave some months ago phoned us with a fearful, shaking, timed voice. She is being tortured by overcoming voices, nagging and bringing up the past, like a tape playing over and over. When she tries to have quiet time it gets worse and she does not know if it is from God. She is afraid and nervous, the tension makes her shake so much that she cannot do her work. She is affecting her colleges and they have moved her to a separate room.

I am sure that there are many others who are being affected this way. Perhaps you know someone who is in the same state. It might be that you are praying with someone who is not overcoming nervous problems or illnesses of some kind.

It is should categorically be established that the things mentioned above is not from God.

We know from the Lord’s Prayer that the will of God must come to earth and it must be in earth as it is in heaven. How is it in heaven? Stop thinking that God wants bad things to happen to you, God is good. Go read about the character of God in Galatian 5:22. God is love, joy peace, longsuffering. God loves us. God is love. He sent Jesus to show His character, which is to heal all the sick, and free the oppressed no matter what your sin is or what your problem is.

If fear has come into you in such a way that it is destroying your life it is because fear is in your heart. You have a fearful heart. But you have already given your heart to Jesus.

All the above is a result of a guilty conscience. The heart is the conscience.

YOU MUST LEARN TO GAURD YOUR HEART!

We take thoughts captive, we do introspection. What thoughts came into your heart? Now that you know that negative thoughts are not from God we should deal with them. You deal with them in the same way you deal with an unwanted aggressive dog in your home. It’s time to put your foot down and chase that dog out with your God given authority. Notice the words ‘Violent’ and ‘Force’ in the next verse.

Mat. 11:12:  “And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force.”

The Biblical way of dealing with negative thoughts feelings and emotions is to know that the Bible calls it the flesh. Gal 5:19 the works of the flesh is every bad feeling, thought and emotion. Jesus overcome the flesh at Calvary. Unfortunately He did not take it out of us, but we overcome them in the same way He did.

In Gal 5:25 we are taught how to do it. It says if you struggle with the flesh, CRUSIFY it!

This is what we do when we use communion. When we eat the bread we eat the flesh of Christ. Because He overcame the flesh we can do the same. Read Luke 9:23. Now comes the most important part. Drink the wine, which is the blood of Jesus.

Heb 10:22:  “Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water.” 

If those thoughts dare to come back you bombard them with this scripture. Your conscience is blood washed You are sealed against death thoughts in the same way the Israelites were saved from death in Egypt because they applied the blood of the lamb of God  to their door posts. All day you meditate on the meaning of the blood of Jesus and the work of the cross and you will be free and you will know how to remain free and saved from the wicket, evil, nature of the sinful man.

Are you living in the Blessing?

I inquired of one of our guests, how things were in this New Year and he responded in the following way. “I work very hard for my boss but he does not want to increase my wages. My boss said that everything is more expensive and he can’t afford to pay me more”. This is the way the conversation went as I began to realize that the man’s focus is his boss. He can’t put too much pressure on the boss because he could lose his job. Strictly speaking, his boss is his provider.  I wonder how many people have this same problem at this time in our country? So many of the men are working in other countries while wives and children are alone at home.

This does not sound like the blessing that God promised His people. It sounds like a curse.  

 I would like to suggest shifting the focus.

 Stop focusing on being the provider, only focus on guarding your heart. Read the following carefully word by word.

Pro 4:23:  “Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.” 

This proverb is saying that all the issues of life come out of the state of the heart. Finances is only one of the issues that we have.

The heart is the conscience and we must love God with all our heart, we must keep all His Commandments if we are going to love Him. If we should do this all the blessings that is written in Deuteronomy 28 is ours.

Deut 28:8:  “The LORD shall command the blessing upon thee in thy storehouses, and in all that thou settest thine hand unto; and he shall bless thee in the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.”

God will bless everything you do if you make the heart your first priority. God is our provider! Let’s face it, we cannot trust people. People might have good intentions but they are only people. Never think that people can provide for us, even if they might want to, they are subject to change but God never changes. God made the world and the universe with a word, don’t you think the least we can do is to keep our heart from sin so that He can live in us constantly and be our provider? If you worry, you are not keeping your heart. Then God is no longer the ruler of your heart, fear is ruling in your heart. It’s idol worship.

God loves us, God wants to provide all the issues of the heart. God wants to bring ideas to us, the earth has never seen, but He cannot find a guarded heart. Our negative emotions and feelings walk in and out of our hearts.

The way we think causes the curse and not the blessing.

If we make the heart the focus of our lives God provides in many creative ways. If you love only God as in the first commandment, the second commandment follows automatically. To love your neighbor as yourself. Because God does bless you, you are automatically a blessing to your workplace and to your colleagues. God will show you how to bring extra income to that business that will cause you to be promoted. You will be a blessing in everything you do!

Go and be a blessing!

Please comment, we love to hear your thoughts.

The Power of Agreement in the New year

In this New Year, I would like to welcome our new readers who have gone through the cave. Most of our new readers have experienced the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit who brought them here in wonderful ways.

It is a time for doing introspection so that we can experience the blessings of God constantly. It’s a time for house cleaning and rearranging our lives so that we have a clear conscience by which we have greater confidence towards God and man.

There is nothing as good as to have a clear conscience. This is the way to have the expectancy that good things are coming our way.

One of the other main things that bring God onto the scene of our lives is the power of agreement.

Mat 18:19:  “Again I say unto you, that if two of you shall agree on earth as touching anything that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.”
