What I need to teach you today is very hard for me. It’s hard because I know how hard it was for me to pull myself away from this and I know that for you to do the same it will take Holy Spirit changing your heart and changing your mind. And we all know change is never easy. So please bear with us, Holy Spirit and I, as we introduce you to the will of God.
You see it is not God’s will that any man shall perish, in fact, God desires for us to have an everlasting life. We are to live forever, but there are stipulations to this gift of life. It’s not enough to just be a good person, but we have to live our lives as Christ lived His life here on earth.
Jesus was a tradition breaker and because of that the Jews despised Him. They had been living with their traditions and rituals since before Moses laid out the laws of God and as I said earlier it’s hard to change from what has always been the routine.
BUT JESUS, Jesus came on the scene and changed the routine. He took those laws that were being held over the Jews head as power by the leaders and placed them into man’s heart. He gave us ownership to the law so that it would no longer be a bondage for man but would become a desire for man. And throughout the history of the Bible God spoke of the traditions and rituals of those that did not belong to Him. Those that worshipped false gods.
We know that throughout the Bible, since the children of Adam, there have always been worshipers of demonic gods. Gods that demanded a sacrifice of lives of our daughters and sons. So just like goodness has always been on the earth so also has evil. Without evil you would not be able to see the good, but here’s the thing. There is no in-between. There is no in-between.
You are either of good, or you are of evil and it’s not what you say that determines which side you are on. It’s what you do. How you live your life.
I really need you to get this today guys because I’m bringing you a make you or break you offer from Holy Spirit.
1st let me explain the difference between world and God’s people.
The world has no standards or morals because they are constantly changing according to the latest fad. If everyone likes it, then it’s ok. There is no such thing as modesty, humbleness, or sacrifice. The world is about self and when it does something for others under the disguise of charity, it is still about self.
Christianity is about having a moral standard that is never changing. This standard was set by Jesus and no matter how much time goes by this moral standard will never change. This standard is about love, giving, caring, being honest, trustful, humble, and making sacrifices for the benefit of others and not ourselves. It’s about the beauty of looking just like Yeshua. Jesus never did anything for His own benefit but He did it all for us.
But in order to look like Jesus we have to be pulled out of this world and let me tell you to truly be pulled out of this world is painful. Painful because it takes a breaking of everything that you have accepted as the norm. A breaking of every tradition that you believed to be acceptable of God.
But God isn’t pleased with us. He’s not pleased because of the compromises that we have made in the name of tradition. Traditions that were supposed to be no more when we said “yes” to Jesus.
Contrary to popular belief that America was founded in God, Satan was here and being worshipped by the different tribes that inhabited America before Whites came here. There were the Incas and the American Indian and there were even Africans here before Christopher Columbus ever came to America. And these indigenous people had no awareness of God even though millenniums ago their founding fathers were part of the clan of Adam.
To the contrary they embraced the dark arts. Witchcraft, sorcery, divination, astrology, worship of gods of nature, of the sun and moon (all demonic). This stuff was here before the 1st Christian ever stepped on the land and it’s still here now but under a disguise.
America is still worshiping these demonic gods through the festival that they hold yearly.
I’m going to get right into it.
So walk with me through history. Since the time Jesus came to earth He implored us to go out, taking with us the good news of the Gospel of Christ, making disciples of all mankind. Here’s where the problems began. Man wanted the power of Christ but they DID NOT want to change. So Christians desperate to say that they had new converts began to compromise with these people just to get them to say they believed in Jesus.
These Christians themselves had not fully embraced what Jesus was offering them. Why? Because as it is the norm with man, fleshly desires will get in the way. This is what happened to the Jews before Christ and it happened again even after Christ. Man began to seek power over other men AGAIN!
So how do you gain power over others? You get them to believe what you want them to believe no matter what it takes to do it. You give a little, you get a little. You bargain.
This bargaining created a bondage for the new converts but it also wrapped the leaders in bondage. The Pharisees and Sadducees all over again under a different name. Christian.
Matthew 16:12, “Then understood they how that he bade them not beware of the leaven of bread, but of the doctrine of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees.”
The Pharisees and Sadducees were given the same doctrine that Moses and the tribe of Israel was given but over the years it was modified and changed because of the desires of flesh because flesh desires power. Always.
Flesh desires power while SPIRIT desires sacrifice.
These two things never go together no matter how hard you try to meld them together because they are completely opposite of each other.
POWER = TAKING
SPIRIT = GIVING
So the whole agenda had changed from the mission of Yeshua for man, to a doctrine polluted by compromises.
Instead of the new man being put on two religions were melded together into one and a name change. This is the way the world has always operated.
But God says, “NO MORE!” “I CALLED YOU OUT!”
Are we not a chosen generation?
1 Peter 2:9, “But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light;”
COME OUT OF THE DARKNESS NOW!
So where is this darkness that Jesus is calling us out of?
It’s seeped in our traditions. It’s drenched in our celebrations.
We are still in it and have refused to come out of it all in the false name of fun.
Fun has become the new age idol. Fun is flesh, while joy is spirit! Did you see that?
FUN = FLESH
JOY = SPIRIT
So what does that make fun?
Fun is of the world. Fun is temporary. It doesn’t last and it won’t sustain you. But on the other hand we have 1 of the fruits of the spirit, JOY!
True joy is everlasting. It doesn’t wane because it lives in the spirit. It’s filling.
John 15:11, “These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full.”
So we’re not looking for fun, we’re looking for joy!
And now that we are close in on October there is yet another tradition feast seeped in the darkness that God has been trying to pull us out approaching fast.
Halloween – the Day of the Dead.
And when you say the name Halloween around the children a light comes into their eyes. A light that we placed there and not God. A light that doesn’t belong to God but belongs to the darkness.
It began as the Harvest Festival celebration of the dead. It didn’t belong to the people of Jesus. It belong to the converts. These new Christians that would not accept Jesus solely on His sacrifice because these new converts, these disciples to be, did not understand the joy of the Lord and they had never experienced it. They were used to worshipping the false God, “Fun” and they would not give that up for Jesus.
Now today, because they were allowed to keep their false God, “Fun”, the darkness has penetrated the Christian community. Christians have to settle for fun because they still have no knowledge of JOY.
When I see Christian embracing pagan traditions and then trying to intertwine God in the sin, I know exactly how Jesus felt when he overturned those tables in the temple of God.
Our God loves you all so much but He wants you to open your eyes to the way Satan has gleefully infiltrated your belief system of the truth of God. How we have allowed Satan to put our JOY in bondage and replaced it with his FUN.
I hear Jesus' cry on the cross right now, "Lord, Lord they know not what they do." and after all these thousands of years, you still don't know what you are doing. You are pushing straight towards the head of the "I don't know you line."
God led me to this scripture. Please pay especially close attention to the title:
Avoid Wicked Customs
"When you come into the land which the Lord your God is giving you, YOU SHALL NOT LEARN TO FOLLOW THE ABOMINATIONS OF THOSE NATIONS. 10 There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, or one who practices witchcraft, or a soothsayer, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer, 11 or one who conjures spells, or a medium, or a spiritist, or one who calls up the dead. 12 For all who do these things are an abomination to the Lord, and because of these abominations the Lord your God drives them out from before you."
God drove them out from before His people in the Old Testament but we have let them back in!!!
"AVOID WICKED CUSTOMS"
Sorcerers, witches, pagan worshippers, demon callers... these are the people that invented Halloween. I'm not going to go through the history this year because I know God can reach you better through your spirit.
This is what the Bible that I love so much orders us to do,
AVOID WICKED CUSTOMS.
It's a hard thing to do when the entire world is doing it, I know. But it's a direct order from the God that we proclaim to love so much and all His desires for us are for our GOOD.
Being disobedient to your promise to follow Jesus when you gave your life to Him moves you from the line of the Lamb's Book of Life to the "I don't know you line." There can be no compromising! You’re either hot or cold. There is no in between in the eyes of God.
And yes, 1 thing once a year can and will do that. You can't repent and then go back and keep doing the same thing year after year with no consequences at the end of your earthly journey.
This is everlasting life that we are striving to reach and I refuse to allow man with his rituals and traditions to knock me out of my spot in the line.
We have to start making wise decisions and if not for yourself, do it for your children because they learn and copy everything that you do. If you say it's good, then it's good to them. If you say it's bad, then it's bad to them. You, the parents are their number 1 teachers and I pray that you are ready to teach them life from this day forth instead of eternal death.
God is tired of His people standing in the middle of the road of indecision. It's all or nothing time. No being in the middle. Being in the middle is a place of death.
He really doesn't want to lose any of His called ones to this world and He knows that it's getting harder and harder to be different from the world, but that's what we really must do. We need to fight these old traditions in order to come out of the darkness and to truly begin to walk in the light of God.
AVOID WICKED CUSTOMS.
It was one of the hardest things for me to do to make the change from the things I was taught to embrace as a child. But I want God more than those things and I taught myself to release them. This is what you will have to do. Train your body to come into alignment with your spirit and the Word of God.
I'm sorry but that's the simple truth and if you don't make the effort then you might as well prepare yourselves for the line of "I don't know you" because God will hold you accountable for this.
I keep hearing Prophet Brian Carn voice, “God’s gonna get you!”
God gave us responsibility not only for ourselves but also for our children and that responsibility leaves you more vulnerable if you are not teaching them the ways of God.
Only you can make this choice. Follow Jesus, follow God, follow what Holy Spirit is speaking to your spirit today, or turn away. Turn towards death. And this isn’t a 1 pagan festival thing. Understand this,
Christmas – Never belonged to Jesus. Pagan festival incorporated to convert pagans from celebrating their idols.
Easter – Not about Jesus but about the fertility God Esther. Also used as a tool of conversion. Christians only celebrate the resurrection of Christ. The whole basis of who we are and the most important thing that brought us life everlasting.
Valentine’s Day – Pagan festival again. Had nothing to do with love and everything to do with lust. This festival literally gave men the right to break their marriage vows once a year and commit sexual acts with many partners.
Satan has really infiltrated our ranks and still many will count these things out. Yet God doesn’t count them out. In fact it breaks the first commandment that God ever gave us: (Thou shall have no other God before me. Exodus 20) So when you celebrate these festivals you partake of celebrating their idols. Their false gods.)
And as hard as it is to let them go I can truthfully tell you that what feels like a battle will become your victory when you finally release the things of this world. When you finally begin to embrace the joy of the Lord. When you finally begin to throw off the bondage of darkness in yours and your children’s life. God never gives up on you as long as you breathe on this earth. He’s calling for your release even now. Listen to your heart and know these words to be true and you are always accountable to the truth.
God is calling you!
“COME OUT! COME OUT!”
Who will answer His call today?
Who will accept the light and leave behind the darkness of this world?
Who will say “yes” and begin to take His JOY into your spirit?
Who I ask?
I’m praying that this message will free you from this bondage Satan has created to trap you in his world. Please receive this seed into your spirit and God will do the rest. It happened for me and I pray it will happen for you.

Ephesians 1:18-19 teaches us about the power of God that is in us, but as Christians many still have not come to an understanding of that power and how God teaches daily lessons on what He has placed within us.
“18 And [I pray] that the eyes of your heart [the very center and core of your being] may be enlightened [flooded with light by the Holy Spirit], so that you will know and cherish the hope [the divine guarantee, the confident expectation] to which He has called you, the riches of His glorious inheritance in the saints (God’s people), 19 and [so that you will begin to know] what the immeasurable and unlimited and surpassing greatness of His [active, spiritual] power is in us who believe. These are in accordance with the working of His mighty strength.” (AMP)
Many times in our lives God is trying to teach us lessons and we just don’t get it. That is why meditation is so important. We meditate on the Word but we also meditate on the things that happened in our lives that day. It’s not to see if we measure up but to see if we perceived the lesson that God was teaching us today.
You see this Word of God is not to be just read but itis to be experienced, lived. I hear people ask all the time how to apply the Word of God to their lives in this day and time and meditating on it plays a big part in that.
You might think that you just had an ordinary day. That your day was pretty much the same as the day before and the day before that, but you’re wrong. Something did happen today, just as it did all the days before. God is trying teaching you even in your day to day activities. The problem is that we don’t pay attention to the lessons.
Let’s start with the morning. You wake up and you know you have to be at work or an appointment at a certain time but you overslept. Or the kids were moving slow. You know you are late but you begin to pray that you get there on time. And surprise! You made it just in time. So what did you learn?
The obvious answer is that God answers our prayers, but if this is your only thought then you have missed the lesson of the day.
You see God didn’t only answer your prayers but He moved time by your words. He actually slowed the whole world down so that you could catch up!!! He showed you that there is power in you to control the time.
Now it’s funny that I read somewhere recently that scientist are really working on developing a way to time travel and we who are called by His name are traveling through time on almost a daily basis!
Matthew 22:29 says, “Jesus answered and said unto them, Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God.”
And 1 Corinthians 4:20 says, “For the kingdom of God is not in word, but in power.”
Until we can conceive that there are no boundaries in this power, this God given power, we will remain in a kind of stasis. A place of inactivity of the power of God. A cocoon of ignorance of everything that God said we have not being activated in our daily lives.
See, we need to begin to elevate our thinking and the only way to do that is to catch these daily lessons that God is trying so hard to teach us. It’s not just about reading the Word of God but this mediating on it is where we get our fuel, our substance. It where we begin to truly come alive in the awareness and knowledge of this power that has been placed in us. It’s where the miracles begin because it not only teaches us but it builds on our faith, since we actually become witnesses to what God has done this day!
It says in Ephesians 3 that to know the love of Christ, which passes knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fullness of God and unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that WORKS in us.
The power that WORKS in us! It’s WORKS! It’s not in stasis. It’s not dormant. It’s moving! It’s active! And it’s in us.
And every day of your life our Father is showing that’s it in us and we miss the lesson.
But that’s okay because you can see it now. You can see that you weren’t really paying attention and now you will. You won’t just say, “I’ve read my verse for the day” or “I read my Bible.” Now you’ll take the time to meditate on what you just finished reading. You’ll look at your day and see what God taught you that day. You’ll be the witness. And learn how better to activate that power that God has placed in you.
So follow these steps each day and watch the changes that will begin to take place in your life.
1. Read your Word! You have to read your Bible because this is where our understanding comes from.
2. Meditate on what you just read. When we meditate we are opening ourselves up for God to show us things we need to see.
3. Meditate on your day and LOOK for the lesson/s that God showed you this day. God never stops teaching us how to be more like Him. We just need to pay more attention to the lesson.
4. Declare that you witness the movement of God’s power. Yes God! You did slow time down so that I made it there on time! I saw it and I know it was you!
5. Practice what you learned. Begin to make the declaration that time will slow down so you can be on time. (Please note that this is just an example.) Make declarations about everything going the way you need it to go. Remember there is power in our words. Declarations speak things into existence.
Just like there are different levels of faith there are different levels of power but following these tools will help you to build up the strength of the power that lives in you. More than power builders they are faith builders because it’s your faith that elevates activates everything God through His Son Jesus has given us.
I pray these words will be a blessing to you.

Everyday angels are battling on your behalf. High places are not as high as you believe. Remember the Tower of Babel. If heaven were unreachable there would not have been a reason for God to stop and divide the people. If you dwell in the spirit realm you can actually see the battleground between heaven and earth. You can see the angels and the demonic angels actually fighting.
Ephesians 6:12 KJV
 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places .
I was on the airplane coming home from New York and it was night and raining but I saw many lights. I know now they were the sparks of blades clashing but not understanding I knew in my spirit that what I was seeing was not natural. I saw a battleground that contained both heaven and hell. There was light above and darkness below. And God's army was light and Lucifer's was clothe in darkness. I didn't see this at the time. It would be a year later that God would take what I saw through that airplane window and expand it. I only saw the lights at the time but the picture I took told a different story. I know now that I didn't take that picture.
That picture was taken in the spirit so that I could see the truth of the Word of God in action.
There is a great battle going on for the souls of man!!
They are actually fighting and we should be fighting too! It is our Father's desire that none shall perish so let's begin to join in this battle to save as many souls as possible.
May you join us on the battleground!
Evangelist Cheryl Davies-Owolabi
Everything in God has a dual nature. Either or. God gives us many choices. Either or. Hot or cold, up or down, right or left, salt or pepper, God or Satan. Heaven or hell. This is because when God gave us free will He wanted us to choose Him on our own so that we would truly belong to Him. We would truly be His child. He didn’t just give us a choice in choosing Him, He gave us a choice in every aspect of our lives and what we choose says who we belong to.
So WHY do we need to know this?
Because it will keep us walking in the truth. The “or” is the deception. The lie.
Give to the world what belongs to the world!
The lie belongs to the world!!!
The lie belongs to the world!!!
The world will try and trap you with its deception. It will set you up, but only if you allow it to.
We can learned from our brother, Jesus how to deal with that.
Matt. 22:15-22 teaches us of how to defeat deception with the truth.
15 Then went the Pharisees, and took counsel how they might entangle him in his talk.
16 And they sent out unto him their disciples with the Herodians, saying, Master, we know that thou art true, and teachest the way of God in truth, neither carest thou for any man: for thou regardest not the person of men.
17 Tell us therefore, What thinkest thou? Is it lawful to give tribute unto Caesar, or not?
18 But Jesus perceived their wickedness, and said, Why tempt ye me, ye hypocrites?
19 Shew me the tribute money. And they brought unto him a penny.
20 And he saith unto them, Whose is this image and superscription?
21 They say unto him, Caesar's. Then saith he unto them, Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar's; and unto God the things that are God's.
22 When they had heard these words, they marvelled, and left him, and went their way.
Give to the world what belongs to the world!
The world was on that money therefore it belonged to the world. God is greater than anything of or in this world and He doesn't need anything that belongs to the world. Just like Jesus really didn’t need that coin.
Did He not turn water into wine?
Did He not feed a multitude on 5 loaves of bread and 2 fish?
Did He not raise Lazarus from the dead?
And how much did all of this cost Him? Not 1 coin!
You see when we walk in the spirit of truth it connects us to the power of God and we begin to see the manifestation of the power that was also given to the sons of God. Everything concerning God is connected. Faith is connected to belief and belief is connected spirit and spirit is connected to truth and truth is connected to the power of God. Mix them up anyway you want but they must all be connected if we are ever to operate in the full power of God.
So give to the world what belongs to the world. If it's not from my Father, then I don't need it. I'm pulling all my needs from the spirit realm and increasing them daily.
Won't you join me?

#Manifestation, #ChooseNow, #FearNotMinistries
Pentecost is thought to be a holy time of the year for most Christians yet it was not meant to be a once a year event. This was just an example of the power and manifestation of Holy Spirit. This power and touching of the Holy Spirit is meant to happen daily in our lives.
"But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you."
God sent HIS Spirit to to teach and to guide us but how can we hear His directions unless we touch His Spirit. You see when Holy Spirit came down there was a purpose that had nothing to do with just feeling good. There is purpose in everything God does and John 14:26 is just one example of what that purpose was. For now let's just examine this most important purpose.
To be a Helper and to teach you all things! How important is that? Not even another man can teach you unless he's been taught and Holy Spirit is the ultimate teacher because Holy Spirit knows all things!! No one else can make this proclamation!!!
Holy Spirit knows ALL things!!!
But we must be able to see and hear in order to learn.
Galatians 5:16 implores us to "walk in the spirit"! It is only in the spirit that we are able to touch, commune and hear Holy Spirit and if you're not listening He can't help you.
Pentecost was a touch from the very hand and Spirit of God!! A touch that God is trying to give us daily but so many are not there yet. So many of you can't hear Holy Spirit when He is speaking to you daily. We must not take just portions of the Bible to add to our lives. To do this is to miss out on the best things God is offering us through His Son Jesus and His Holy Spirit.
When Holy Spirit touches you everything about you will change including your language. That is why it is called your spirit language and this language has not just one, but many purposes.
But you won't know it until you allow yourself to be touched by Holy Spirit! Just one touch daily can change your entire life!
So let us not wait for the day of Pentecost to experience to fullness of God. Reach up and touch His Spirit daily and you'll find it a lot easier to walk in the Spirit.
