It is good to KNOW that you have eternal life. Alleluia! We really don’t play fair at all. They can kill us but we don’t die. John 11:26 Alleluia! We have eternal life IN Christ Jesus. And we do KNOW the highest calling of God IN Christ Jesus is to be counted worthy to suffer for Him. Alleluia! It is nothing but a win-win situation for those IN Christ Jesus and nothing but HELL for those who are not.

Richard Wurmbrand spent 14 years in a cell where he could not stand up straight at the hands of antichrist government tyranny. He often testified that those 14 years of torture were the best years of His life because of the depth of fellowship which he then had with The Lord Jesus Christ. Almost all of the great heroes for Jesus Christ could have been delivered but they CHOSE not to be delivered that they might attain unto a BETTER resurrection. Woven right into their white robes of righteousness that they will wear throughout eternity is MARTYR FOR JESUS CHRIST. Sure beats any government commendation or medal of honor any government on this earth will give out.

Indeed the time has come that ALL who will live Godly IN Christ Jesus SHALL suffer persecution. That indeed is the gold that does not perish that we can buy from the Lord Jesus Christ. Sad how few realize the opportunity we have in this last generation.

The miracles are all about getting the path straight and the heart pure and hearing from God. Indeed a little fasting is good for the soul and to greatly improve our hearing from Him. You see that is how we get to see the miracles, hearing from Him. As we do start walking right with Him the signs just FOLLOW them who believe. They follow and you get to witness them, you get to see first hand the exceeding greatness of His mighty power. When His power is manifest it is FOR HIS GLORY. Many get derailed at this point. We have this treasure in earthen vessels But the excellency of the power is of God and not of us.

While He is glorified to manifest His power, we will experience great joy knowing He allowed us to enter in, and know, and even ask that He be glorified in a particular way. Yet the RIGHT response to the manifestation of His glorious power is that it should humble us. If it does, then you may be very sure He will be letting you in on and KNOW more ways in which He may be glorified in the manifestation of His power for His glory.

“In The Name of” Jesus, “In The Name of” Yahweh, “In The Name of” Yeshua, is the key to it all. It is sad how few really understand it.

Perhaps long ago, you might have seen a TV program about Sgt. Preston of the Northwest Mounted Police of Canada. He had a wonderful lead sled dog named Yukon King. Well Sgt. Preston and King always cuffed the bad guys. He would always say when putting the handcuffs on, “I arrest you In The Name of the Crown.”

In The Name of, means POSITIONAL AUTHORITY.

We can have POSITIONAL AUTHORITY. That is a big part of the deceitfulness of sin. We have POSITIONAL AUTHORITY as kings and priests. Those working for Lucifer by design, default, ignorance, or willing ignorance, may have power of FORCE of UNgodly and UNlawful laws, but they do NOT have AUTHORITY. This will become evident when we are brought before their judges, governors and kings for Jesus sake, for a testimony against them. We will speak with AUTHORITY.

If we look at how Jesus taught us to pray it really is very simple. God only has ONE answer to prayer. Yes, and AMEN, IN Christ Jesus.

The question very simply is will God our Father hear our prayer?

Avinu, Aba, Father. Alleluia, what a privilege. Before Jesus came, only Jesus could call God, Father. Now, by the Spirit of Adoption, we too may call His Father Our Father. Alleluia! That in fact, is how Jesus taught us to pray. I knew my dad’s name that other people called him. But only my brothers and my sister could call him dad. We had a privilege that was not available to those who were not his children.

If He will hear our prayer, it is a done deal. We know ABSOLUTELY NOTHING is impossible for Him except for to lie. So the whole key to prayer is IN Christ Jesus. Are we IN Him? Are we looking at this situation the way Jesus would look at it? Can we, like Jesus, see how the Father will be glorified in doing that for which we pray?

Now I do know that if I regard iniquity in my heart the Lord will not hear me. I also know that if I am asking for something to gratify my lust, He will not hear me. I know too, that if I am asking for something that is NOT in His will the Lord will not hear it. Otherwise, I DO KNOW THAT, IF HE HEARS ME, THEN IT IS DONE.

The key then is to develop that mind of Christ to see clearly how that the Father would be glorified. That is where the effectualness of our fervent prayers becomes very effective. It happens as we have our mind transformed and renewed by the Word, to be conformed and take every thought captive to the mind of Christ. Then we pray like Jesus did, and we see results like Jesus did, that glorify the Father.

Sometimes people ask me to pray for them, and I have said why, what good would that do? What I am saying, is that I need to hear the Holy Spirit confirming that indeed the Father would be glorified and it is in His perfect will to be so glorified. Then, if that witness of the Spirit is there, it is a slam dunk done deal. Alleluia! I could not heal a fly if it had a headache. Yet I can hardly think of anyone in the last few years that I was led to pray that God be glorified in their healing that they were not healed. Effectual prayer has to do with being able to KNOW God’s will, and to KNOW how He may be glorified. Alleluia!

So let us stay in this battle with abiding joy. Let us buy from Yeshua all the gold of tribulation that He sets before us unto the end. Always knowing that when we are threatened with eternity that heaven is not that bad.

John 17:1 These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee: 

John 17:2 As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him.

John 17:3 And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.

John 17:4 I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do.

John 17:5 And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was.

John 17:6 I have manifested thy name unto the men which thou gavest me out of the world: thine they were, and thou gavest them me; and they have kept thy word.

That name that Yeshua manifested was the same name of highest privilege by which Yeshua prayed to God. FATHER. Yeshua is not ashamed to call us His brethren. By the price of redemption and by the Spirit of Adoption, He gave us the highest privilege of calling His Father our Father. The angels do not even have such privilege that I can find from scripture. When we are born again into His family we can call His Father our Father. That is why Yeshua taught us also to call NO MAN your Father on earth and why the apostate Vatican church pushes its people so hard to disobey that command of the Lord in Matt 23:9.

Shalom & Simcha,
