Psalm 70

Psalm 70



1 Make haste, o God, to deliver me; make haste to help me, O Lord.

2 Let them be ashamed and confounded that seek after my soul: let them be turned backward, and put to confusion, that desire my hurt.

3 Let them be turned back for a reward of their shame that says, Aha, aha.

4 Let all those that seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee: and let such as love thy salvation say continually, Let God be magnified.

5 But I am poor and needy: make haste unto me, O God: thou art my help and my deliverer; O Lord, make no tarrying.

Spirit Wars 9, Armageddon

The Final Conflict 


{Beautiful Music plays and the camera pans down to the Earth and zooms in on Mankind in Modern Times, going to and fro in the Earth. Narrator speaks}

"Much time has passed since Jesus raised up from the Dead. Over 2000 years. Many have grown cold and unable to even hear God's Word. Mankind simply makes their own world and lives. They blindly go through their routines, most without a single clue as to what reality is.

The Dark Lord has done a great job erasing God from Public Life. He even removed God from the Nation that was founded on His Word and Name. Generation after Generation, chipping away at Morals, Family, and anything Godly. Slowly but surely Mankind fell asleep. Those that started seeking more, The Dark Lord even created and facilitated Religions without the key, Jesus. Slowly Man simply went about their lives based on feelings and what others said was Right and Wrong. Yet there still were a few true Saints left. They remembered what Jesus said in Matthew 24."
"See that no one leads you astray. For many will come in my name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and they will lead many astray. And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not alarmed, for this must take place, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these are but the beginning of the birth pains."
They started to look around and see all these things coming to pass. Jesus continued.
Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and put you to death, and you will be hated by all nations for my name's sake. And then many will fall away and betray one another and hate one another. And many false prophets will arise and lead many astray. And because lawlessness will be increased, the love of many will grow cold. But the one who endures to the end will be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom will be proclaimed throughout the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come."
Again they looked around and saw all these things were coming to pass as well. They pulled out the Word and read this in Romans 1:18-25
"For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth. For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse. For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened. Claiming to be wise, they became fools, and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man and birds and animals and creeping things.

Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves, because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Amen."
Even again, they saw all this was true. They pointed out all the things that were going on in the World and all the things lined up to be exactly as The Word of God said. All things were in line with what Jesus said. They looked around, then at each other, then they looked up.

The World Persecuted them. The World Abused them. Sued them. Silenced them. Even arrested and put them to death for no other reason than they believe in the Name Jesus Christ. The Dark Lord laughs and celebrates. He is truly in Charge of the World. The Word of God even tells us this. He is called the Lord of the Air. The Lord of this World. Satan.

However, the Faithful remembered Jesus said this. Even though people popped up from time to time saying that the end was near, they remembered this.
"Then if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Christ!’ orThere he is!’ do not believe it. For false christs and false prophets will arise and perform great signs and wonders, so as to lead astray, if possible, even the elect. See, I have told you beforehand. So, if they say to you, ‘Look, he is in the wilderness,’ do not go out. If they say, ‘Look, he is in the inner rooms,’ do not believe it. For as the lightning comes from the east and shines as far as the west, so will be the coming of the Son of Man. Wherever the corpse is, there the vultures will gather.

Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light, and the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. Then will appear in heaven the sign of the Son of Man, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And he will send out his angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other."
There will be no doubt whatsoever. All will know the End Times have come. It will not be hidden. Even though Jesus tells us that it will have when no one knows, and we will be
"as were the days of Noah, so will be the coming of the Son of Man. For as in those days before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day when Noah entered the ark,"
The true Saints will be watching. Waiting."

Suddenly, there was a great noise. They watched as Seven Seals were broken. The first they looked up and saw a White Horse coming from the Heavens. He was like a mighty conquering Warrior. the Second brings another Horseman and brings great War to the whole Earth. The Third another Horseman who brings Famine throughout the whole Earth. The Fourth yet another Horseman comes bring Plagues and even more Warfare. The Fifth Seal is broken causing the Saints of this time to lose their lives for their Faith. Most will die horrible deaths. The Sixth Seal brings about a massive Earthquake as the Earth never seen and along with unusual Astronomical Phenomena.

Remember Jesus told us this.
"there will be famines and earthquakes in various places, the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light, and the stars will fall from heaven, "
The Saints watch as this all takes place and Millions of People are destroyed. They watch as Seven Bowels are poured out upon the Earth and even more are destroyed and more of the Earth is destroyed. They heard Trumpets starting to sound
"hail and fire, mixed with blood, and these were thrown upon the earth. And a third of the earth was burned up, and a third of the trees were burned up, and all green grass was burned up." {Revelations 8
Another Trumpet, the Sea turned to death. Third, brought an Asteroid crashed down turning a third of the water Poisonous. Another Trumpet the Sun Moon and Stars were darkened by a third. Another, and Locus and other mutated biting insects sent to torment Man.

The Sixth Trumpet sounded and Four Angels were released and sent to slaughter a third of all Mankind. Yet still, after all this, the remaining Mankind still refused to repent form all his Sins.
"Then the seventh angel blew his trumpet, and there were loud voices in heaven, saying, “The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of his Christ, and he shall reign forever and ever.” And the twenty-four elders who sit on their thrones before God fell on their faces and worshiped God, saying,
“We give thanks to you, Lord God Almighty, who is and who was, for you have taken your great power and begun to reign. The nations raged, but your wrath came, and the time for the dead to be judged, and for rewarding your servants, the prophets and saints, and those who fear your name, both small and great, and for destroying the destroyers of the earth."
Then they saw it. The Coming of the Son of Man. The returning of Jesus. Riding on a Cloud, with a golden Crown on His head, and a sharp Sickle in His hand. Then more Angels appeared with Sickles in their hands. They reaped the Harvest and destroyed the evil ones. Then they witnessed this as depicted in Revelations 19
"Then I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse! The one sitting on it is called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he judges and makes war. His eyes are like a flame of fire, and on his head are many diadems, and he has a name written that no one knows but himself. He is clothed in a robe dipped in blood, and the name by which he is called is The Word of God. And the armies of heaven, arrayed in fine linen, white and pure, were following him on white horses. From his mouth comes a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations, and he will rule them with a rod of iron. He will tread the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God the Almighty. On his robe and on his thigh he has a name written, King of kings and Lord of lords."
Satan is defeated and locked away. A new Heaven and Earth were formed and Peace reigned for a Thousand Years. Remember Jesus Himself told John
"And behold, I am coming soon. Blessed is the one who keeps the words of the prophecy of this book."
There is no Doubt. There is no Question. This has already happened.The Final Chapter has been written. We just have not gotten there yet. We will. The time is coming. The Kingdom of God IS at hand.

Are you ready? Do you know Jesus as your Savior? Have you been adopted into the Family of God? If not, say this Prayer. Right now. Wherever you may be. Say it in your own words, and do not doubt in your heart. God will hear you. He will send the Spirit of Life to you. Let us Pray.

"Oh Heavenly Father, Lord God. I am a sinner. I know this. I know there is nothing I can do to change that. But I know you can. I accept Jesus's sacrifice for me. I repent my sins. Please send the Spirit of Adoption into my life. Help me to get to know the real you. Save me. Please. In the name of Jesus, Amen!"


That's it. It really is that simple. Now go tell someone what you have just done. "That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved." {Romans 10:9} You need to find a Church that God leads you to, and be Baptized the way Jesus said to be. You are now a Child of God. A new Creature. You "have put off the old man with his deeds, and have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him." {Colossians 3:10}

The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost, be with you all. Amen. {2 Corinthians 13}


Until next time, be Blessed, be a Blessing, and Jesus IS Lord!

Psalm 69

Psalm 69



1 Save me, O God; for the waters are come in unto my soul.

2 I sink in deep mire, where there is no standing: I am come into deep waters, where the floods overflow me.

3 I am weary of my crying: my throat is dried: mine eyes fail while I wait for my God.

4 They that hate me without a cause are more than the hairs of mine head: they that would destroy me, being mine enemies wrongfully, are mighty: then I restored that which I took not away.

5 O God, thou knowest my foolishness; and my sins are not hid from thee.

6 Let not them that wait on thee, O Lord God of hosts, be ashamed for my sake: let not those that seek thee be confounded for my sake, O God of Israel.

7 Because for thy sake I have borne reproach; shame hath covered my face.

8 I am become a stranger unto my brethren, and an alien unto my mother's children.

9 For the zeal of thine house hath eaten me up; and the reproaches of them that reproached thee are fallen upon me.

10 When I wept, and chastened my soul with fasting, that was to my reproach.

11 I made sackcloth also my garment; and I became a proverb to them.

12 They that sit in the gate speak against me; and I was the song of the drunkards.

13 But as for me, my prayer is unto thee, O Lord, in an acceptable time: O God, in the multitude of thy mercy hear me, in the truth of thy salvation.

14 Deliver me out of the mire, and let me not sink: let me be delivered from them that hate me, and out of the deep waters.

15 Let not the waterflood overflow me, neither let the deep swallow me up, and let not the pit shut her mouth upon me.

16 Hear me, O Lord; for thy lovingkindness is good: turn unto me according to the multitude of thy tender mercies.

17 And hide not thy face from thy servant; for I am in trouble: hear me speedily.

18 Draw nigh unto my soul, and redeem it: deliver me because of mine enemies.

19 Thou hast known my reproach, and my shame, and my dishonour: mine adversaries are all before thee.

20 Reproach hath broken my heart; and I am full of heaviness: and I looked for some to take pity, but there was none; and for comforters, but I found none.

21 They gave me also gall for my meat; and in my thirst they gave me vinegar to drink.

22 Let their table become a snare before them: and that which should have been for their welfare, let it become a trap.

23 Let their eyes be darkened, that they see not; and make their loins continually to shake.

24 Pour out thine indignation upon them, and let thy wrathful anger take hold of them.

25 Let their habitation be desolate; and let none dwell in their tents.

26 For they persecute him whom thou hast smitten; and they talk to the grief of those whom thou hast wounded.

27 Add iniquity unto their iniquity: and let them not come into thy righteousness.

28 Let them be blotted out of the book of the living, and not be written with the righteous.

29 But I am poor and sorrowful: let thy salvation, O God, set me up on high.

30 I will praise the name of God with a song, and will magnify him with thanksgiving.

31 This also shall please the Lord better than an ox or bullock that hath horns and hoofs.

32 The humble shall see this, and be glad: and your heart shall live that seek God.

33 For the Lord heareth the poor, and despiseth not his prisoners.

34 Let the heaven and earth praise him, the seas, and every thing that moveth therein.

35 For God will save Zion, and will build the cities of Judah: that they may dwell there, and have it in possession.

36 The seed also of his servants shall inherit it: and they that love his name shall dwell therein.

Spirit Wars 8, A New Threat

A New Threat



{Dark March Music Plays, the camera pans down to see Saul and the Dark Lord together. Saul turns and leaves to go on his Mission.}

{Beautiful Music Plays and the Camera pans to a Handsome Young Man named Stephen who was very powerful and strong in Faith. He was healing the Sick, teaching the Truth. He was converting many to Jesus by teaching the Gospel.

The Religious Leaders arrested him. {Dark Heavy March Music plays} We see Saul arrive at the Stoning Pit. Saul was a Pharisee of the strictest Sect.
"And they stoned Stephen, calling upon God, and saying, Lord Jesus, receive my spirit. And he kneeled down, and cried with a loud voice, Lord, lay not this sin to their charge. And when he had said this, he fell asleep." {Acts 7:59-60}

"And Saul was consenting unto his death. And at that time there was a great persecution against the church which was at Jerusalem; and they were all scattered abroad throughout the regions of Judaea and Samaria, except the apostles." {Acts 8:1}
The Saints continued to teach, yet now mostly in secret. Fear spread throughout the land of Saul "The Butcher." Saul received great Praise, Power, and Position in the Jew's Religion. He was more Zealous than most. {Acts 22} During this time, simply accepting the name Jesus and accepting the Truth of the Gospel, could and would, get you thrown in Jail. Teaching "The Way" could and would get you Killed. Saul was one of the most Feared of all the Pharisees because of his Zeal. He actually took great pleasure in attacking "Christians" which was a derogatory name at the time.

However, Jesus had other plans for Saul.
"And Saul, yet breathing out threatenings and slaughter against the disciples of the Lord, went unto the high priest, And desired of him letters to Damascus to the synagogues, that if he found any of this way, whether they were men or women, he might bring them bound unto Jerusalem." {Acts 9:1-2}
{Heavy Dark Music Plays as the camera pans down to see Saul and his Crew Marching toward Damascus}
"And as he journeyed, he came near Damascus: and suddenly there shined round about him a light from heaven: And he fell to the earth, and heard a voice saying unto him, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me?"
We see the silhouette, taking a glowing form of Jesus Himself shining before Saul and His Company.
"And he said, Who art thou, Lord? And the Lord said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest: it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks. And he trembling and astonished said, Lord, what wilt thou have me to do? And the Lord said unto him, Arise, and go into the city, and it shall be told thee what thou must do. And the men which journeyed with him stood speechless, hearing a voice, but seeing no man. And Saul arose from the earth; and when his eyes were opened, he saw no man: but they led him by the hand, and brought him into Damascus. And he was three days without sight, and neither did eat nor drink."
{Beautiful Music Plays} After this meeting, we see that Jesus appears to a Saint named Ananias in Damascus and tells him to go to a man's house named Judas to seek out Saul, and heal his Blindness. But Ananias was full of fear.
"Lord, I have heard by many of this man, how much evil he hath done to thy saints at Jerusalem: And here he hath authority from the chief priests to bind all that call on thy name.

But the Lord said unto him, Go thy way: for he is a chosen vessel unto me, to bear my name before the Gentiles, and kings, and the children of Israel: For I will shew him how great things he must suffer for my name's sake." {Acts 9:13-16}
So because of his Faith, he went and healed Saul, and Baptized him. Saul became Paul and started to boldly teach Jesus is Lord and the Way of Salvation in the streets and Synagogues. The Jews that heard it was confounded and confused. The "Christians" that heard it was as well.

{Dark March Music Plays} The Dark Lord Cried Out "Nnnooo!" He sets the Hatred in the hearts of Jews against Paul at nearly the same level as Jesus Himself. His Hatred of Paul was unmatched for turning against him.

The Jews set a trap for him, but the Saints came and whisked him away in the night. When they heard the Truth and saw he had changed, they set him on his way back towards his homeland of Tarsus. Paul did not go to meet with the other Saints, namely Peter. Instead, he went to Arabia and learned directly from God and was appointed to teach the Gentiles.{Galatians 1:11-24}

{Beautiful Music Plays} A bit later we see that he does go to meet with Peter. When they met, Paul told Peter and the Saints all that he had been through from his Conversion to all things. Peter said this.
"It seemed good unto us, being assembled with one accord, to send chosen men unto you with our beloved Barnabas and Paul, Men that have hazarded their lives for the name of our Lord Jesus Christ."
Peter saw Paul as an equal. A man who is ordained by Jesus Himself, to be the outreach, if you will, of the Gospel to the Gentiles.
"For it seemed good to the Holy Ghost, and to us, to lay upon you no greater burden than these necessary things; That ye abstain from meats offered to idols, and from blood, and from things strangled, and from fornication: from which if ye keep yourselves, ye shall do well. Fare ye well."
That's it. Believe, and grow in Faith. Live as God tells you to live. Do not be conformed to the world. Be above it. Sin no more. This is Peter's message to the Jewish Church and now Paul's message to the Church of the Gentiles, now called "Christians."

Paul most definitely paid for his Faith. Paul was put in prison over and over. Faced death over and over. Received 39 lashes from the Jews 5 times. Beaten with rods 3 times. Stoned one time. Shipwrecked 3 times. Spent a day and night in the Sea. Often hungry and thirsty, cold and naked. You can find Paul explaining this in {2 Corinthians 11.}

Now to this day, all you have to do to defeat the Dark Lord is accept the Sacrifice of Jesus. God made it simple. He made is all-inclusive. He made is open to all. Just like when Jesus walked the Earth, the World will hate you for it. The Dark Lord may even attack you. As the time grows closer to the Final Battle, we will come back to a time where it may very well cost you your very Life to accept Jesus.

{Dark March Music Plays. The camera pans over to see The Dark Lord contemplating his only option.} Since Jesus came and paid the Price for all, he will have to come in the Flesh also. As the Antichrist, he feels he may win complete control over again. He feels that he can actually defeat God once and for all. {Camera fades to black}.

Do you know Jesus as your Savior? Have you been adopted into the Family of God? If not, say this Prayer. Right now. Wherever you may be. Say it in your own words, and do not doubt in your heart. God will hear you. He will send the Spirit of Life to you. Let us Pray.

"Oh heavenly Father, Lord God. I am a sinner. I know this. I know there is nothing I can do to change that. But I know you can. I accept Jesus's sacrifice for me. I repent my sins. Please send the Spirit of Adoption into my life. Help me to get to know the real you. Save me. Please. In the name of Jesus, Amen!"

That's it. It really is that simple. Now go tell someone what you have just done. "That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved." {Romans 10:9} You need to find a Church that God leads you to, and be Baptized the way Jesus said to be. You are now a Child of God. A new Creature. You "have put off the old man with his deeds, and have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him." {Colossians 3:10}

Psalm 68

Psalm 68



1 Let God arise, let his enemies be scattered: let them also that hate him flee before him.

2 As smoke is driven away, so drive them away: as wax melteth before the fire, so let the wicked perish at the presence of God.

3 But let the righteous be glad; let them rejoice before God: yea, let them exceedingly rejoice.

4 Sing unto God, sing praises to his name: extol him that rideth upon the heavens by his name Jah, and rejoice before him.

5 A father of the fatherless, and a judge of the widows, is God in his holy habitation.

6 God setteth the solitary in families: he bringeth out those which are bound with chains: but the rebellious dwell in a dry land.

7 O God, when thou wentest forth before thy people, when thou didst march through the wilderness; Selah:

8 The earth shook, the heavens also dropped at the presence of God: even Sinai itself was moved at the presence of God, the God of Israel.

9 Thou, O God, didst send a plentiful rain, whereby thou didst confirm thine inheritance, when it was weary.

10 Thy congregation hath dwelt therein: thou, O God, hast prepared of thy goodness for the poor.

11 The Lord gave the word: great was the company of those that published it.

12 Kings of armies did flee apace: and she that tarried at home divided the spoil.

13 Though ye have lien among the pots, yet shall ye be as the wings of a dove covered with silver, and her feathers with yellow gold.

14 When the Almighty scattered kings in it, it was white as snow in Salmon.

15 The hill of God is as the hill of Bashan; an high hill as the hill of Bashan.

16 Why leap ye, ye high hills? this is the hill which God desireth to dwell in; yea, the Lord will dwell in it for ever.

17 The chariots of God are twenty thousand, even thousands of angels: the Lord is among them, as in Sinai, in the holy place.

18 Thou hast ascended on high, thou hast led captivity captive: thou hast received gifts for men; yea, for the rebellious also, that the Lord God might dwell among them.

19 Blessed be the Lord, who daily loadeth us with benefits, even the God of our salvation. Selah.

20 He that is our God is the God of salvation; and unto God the Lord belong the issues from death.

21 But God shall wound the head of his enemies, and the hairy scalp of such an one as goeth on still in his trespasses.

22 The Lord said, I will bring again from Bashan, I will bring my people again from the depths of the sea:

23 That thy foot may be dipped in the blood of thine enemies, and the tongue of thy dogs in the same.

24 They have seen thy goings, O God; even the goings of my God, my King, in the sanctuary.

25 The singers went before, the players on instruments followed after; among them were the damsels playing with timbrels.

26 Bless ye God in the congregations, even the Lord, from the fountain of Israel.

27 There is little Benjamin with their ruler, the princes of Judah and their council, the princes of Zebulun, and the princes of Naphtali.

28 Thy God hath commanded thy strength: strengthen, O God, that which thou hast wrought for us.

29 Because of thy temple at Jerusalem shall kings bring presents unto thee.

30 Rebuke the company of spearmen, the multitude of the bulls, with the calves of the people, till every one submit himself with pieces of silver: scatter thou the people that delight in war.

31 Princes shall come out of Egypt; Ethiopia shall soon stretch out her hands unto God.

32 Sing unto God, ye kingdoms of the earth; O sing praises unto the Lord; Selah:

33 To him that rideth upon the heavens of heavens, which were of old; lo, he doth send out his voice, and that a mighty voice.

34 Ascribe ye strength unto God: his excellency is over Israel, and his strength is in the clouds.

35 O God, thou art terrible out of thy holy places: the God of Israel is he that giveth strength and power unto his people. Blessed be God.

Spirit Wars 7, Rise of The Saints

Rise of The Saints 



{Beautiful Music plays, as the Camera pans down to see the Saints gathered together.} Jesus has just given us the "Great Commission,"
"All power is given unto me in heaven and in the earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen."{Matthew 28:16-20}
Then we watched as Jesus rose toward Heaven and vanished.
"The former treatise have I made, O Theophilus, of all that Jesus began both to do and teach, Until the day in which he was taken up, after that he through the Holy Ghost had given commandments unto the apostles whom he had chosen:

To whom also he shewed himself alive after his passion by many infallible proofs, being seen of them forty days, and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God: And, being assembled together with them, commanded them that they should not depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father, which, saith he, ye have heard of me." {Acts 1:1-4}
Here the Saints were gathered together without a real clue as to what was about to happen. Even though Jesus told them plainly.
"But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth." {Acts 1:8}
So gathered together they were.
"Then returned they unto Jerusalem from the mount called Olivet, which is from Jerusalem a sabbath day's journey. And when they were come in, they went up into an upper room, where abode both Peter, and James, and John, and Andrew, Philip, and Thomas, Bartholomew, and Matthew, James the son of Alphaeus, and Simon Zelotes, and Judas the brother of James. These all continued with one accord in prayer and supplication, with the women, and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with his brethren." {Acts 1:12-14}
Peter spoke up and told of all the things that had happened. along with the Disciples, there were about 120 people that have] been together through most of Jesus's time, Crucifixion, Resurrection, until now. He stood in the midst and named all the Names of everyone there and made a case to replace the Traitor Judas. They Chose two and Prayed for God to chose the one. the Lots fell on Matthias who became the 12th.

Then, suddenly, it began..
"And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance. And there were dwelling at Jerusalem Jews, devout men, out of every nation under heaven. Now when this was noised abroad, the multitude came together, and were confounded, because that every man heard them speak in his own language." {Acts 2:2-6}
Some of the Men that were there were amazed and attempted to excuse some of it as if they were drunk. Peter stood up knowing their thoughts and said this.
" And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams: And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy: And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke:The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and notable day of the L and ord come: And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved." {Acts 1:17-21}
Peter continued teaching how Jesus came from the Seed of David and all the things that are taught and fulfilled by Jesus, and then all there were amazed and afraid by all the power and signs that the Saints did and were shown.

They continued together, selling all they had and spending time together forming the Church and many were added daily. Peter showed great Power and Authority healing a beggar and many other things he did. Yet was always quick to denounce any credit for what was happening to give all praise and glory to Jesus and God.

{Dark Heavy March Music plays. As the Camera pans to The Dark Lord} As the Church grew, and more and more people were being Saved by the Gospel, he knew he had to stop this. He reached out and touched the Hearts and Minds of the Religious Leaders. Anger and Hatred started to Grow toward the Saints. Yet the Saints continued to increase in numbers. 

When asked but what Power or Authority Peter was doing these things, he responded with this.
"This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner. Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marvelled; and they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus. And beholding the man which was healed standing with them, they could say nothing against it." {Acts 4:11-14}
{Beautiful Music plays, the image of Jesus appears. The Narrator speaks.} These things were taught by the Saints are the same things that are taught unto this very day. That Jesus is The Way, The Truth, The Life. There is NO OTHER WAY! Not anything in a World Sense. Not any other Book. Not any other "Religious Leader," not any Religion at all. No other name will do it. Only Jesus alone.

{Dark Heavy March Music plays, as the Camera pans to a young man standing in a circle.} The Dark Lord is whispering in his ear. "Hunt down and destroy all those that are following this Jesus. Do what must be done. Enslave and kill all those that are found to be in "The Way." Follow me and you will receive great Power and Position in the Jews Religion, Saul." Saul turns and smiles at the Dark Lord. "Yes my Lord, it will be done." {Camera pans out to darkness}

Do you know Jesus as your Savior? Have you been adopted into the Family of God? If not, say this Prayer. Right now. Wherever you may be. Say it in your own words, and do not doubt in your heart. God will hear you. He will send the Spirit of Life to you. Let us Pray.

"Oh Heavenly Father, Lord God. I am a sinner. I know this. I know there is nothing I can do to change that. But I know you can. I accept Jesus's sacrifice for me. I repent my sins. Please send the Spirit of Adoption into my life. Help me to get to know the real you. Save me. Please. In the name of Jesus, Amen!"

That's it. It really is that simple. Now go tell someone what you have just done. "That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved." {Romans 10:9} You need to find a Church that God leads you to, and be Baptized the way Jesus said to be. You are now a Child of God. A new Creature. You "have put off the old man with his deeds, and have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him." {Colossians 3:10}

Spirit Wars 6, Return of The Jesus

Return of The Jesus



{Quiet Beautiful Music Plays} Camera pans down to see a beautiful Sunny morning with two Beautiful Women walking briskly toward the Tomb.
"In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulcher. And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it.

His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow: And for fear of him the keepers did shake and became as dead men. And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified. He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay. And go quickly, and tell his disciples that he is risen from the dead; and, behold, he goeth before you into Galilee; there shall ye see him: lo, I have told you. And they departed quickly from the sepulcher with fear and great joy, and did run to bring his disciples word." {Matthew 28:1-8}
They run and tell the Saints what they found. But they did not believe them.
"And their words seemed to them as idle tales, and they believed them not. Then arose Peter, and ran unto the sepulchre; and stooping down, he beheld the linen clothes laid by themselves, and departeth wondering in himself at that which was come to pass. And, behold, two of them went that same day to a village called Emmaus, which was from Jerusalem about threescore furlongs. And they talked together of all these things which had happened." {Luke 24:11-14}
{Dark Heavy March Music Plays} Camera pans to The Dark Lord observing the empty Tomb and the Saints finding it this way. He cannot allow people to actually believe Jesus has Risen. So he turns to the Religious Leaders to attempt to control this. He sets a Lie to be put forth.
"Now when they were going, behold, some of the watch came into the city, and shewed unto the chief priests all the things that were done. And when they were assembled with the elders and had taken counsel, they gave large money unto the soldiers, Saying, Say ye, His disciples came by night and stole him away while we slept. And if this comes to the governor's ears, we will persuade him, and secure you. So they took the money, and did as they were taught: and this saying is commonly reported among the Jews until this day." {Matthew28:11-15}
Yet the Truth is much different. {Quiet Beautiful Music Plays as the Camera pans over to see the Disciples discussing the Empty Tomb.}
"And it came to pass, that, while they communed together and reasoned, Jesus himself drew near, and went with them. But their eyes were holden that they should not know him. And he said unto them, What manner of communications are these that ye have one to another, as ye walk, and are sad?

And the one of them, whose name was Cleopas, answering said unto him, Art thou only a stranger in Jerusalem, and hast not known the things which are come to pass there in these days? And he said unto them, What things? And they said unto him, Concerning Jesus of Nazareth, which was a prophet mighty in deed and word before God and all the people: And how the chief priests and our rulers delivered him to be condemned to death, and have crucified him. But we trusted that it had been he which should have redeemed Israel: and beside all this, to day is the third day since these things were done. Yea and certain women also of our company made us astonished, which were early at the sepulchre; And when they found not his body, they came, saying, that they had also seen a vision of angels, which said that he was alive. And certain of them which were with us went to the sepulchre, and found it even so as the women had said: but him they saw not.

Then he said unto them, O fools, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken: Ought not Christ to have suffered these things, and to enter into his glory? And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, he expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself. And they drew nigh unto the village, whither they went: and he made as though he would have gone further. But they constrained him, saying, Abide with us: for it is toward evening, and the day is far spent. And he went in to tarry with them. And it came to pass, as he sat at meat with them, he took bread and blessed it, and brake, and gave to them. And their eyes were opened, and they knew him, and he vanished out of their sight." {Luke 24:15-34}
Now they realize why there can be no other way. Jesus told them beforehand, that "But the Scriptures point to me!" {John 5:39} No one else. He told them that He is the Way, Truth, and Life and there is no other way. {John 14:6} He told them that He and He alone is Lord. That even before their Father Abraham, He was. {John 8:58} Now that He was Tortured, Beaten, given Stripes, and Crucified, yet Risen again, fulfilling  Isaiah 53, there is simply no other way. He IS Lord of Lords and King of King. He IS God Himself. They now fully understand.

Now that Jesus has risen again, and now that He is about to go be with His Father in Heaven, the Holy Spirit can now come and enter into all that Believe and accept Jesus's Sacrifice. Now the New Saints, anyone who believes and accepts, will be able to become actual Children of God. They will become Powerful. They will be even more powerful than the Dark Lord himself, because.
"Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world." {1 John 4:4}
Just like all the things that the Dark Lord tried to overthrow God, defeat and turn Jesus, he can never defeat a Child of God with the Holy Spirit in them. Do not be misled, The Dark Lord still controls this World, but when you become a Saint, you can overcome the World. As Jesus appears before the Saints one last time.
"Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, into a mountain where Jesus had appointed them. And when they saw him, they worshipped him: but some doubted. And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying,

All power is given unto me in heaven and in the earthGo ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen."{Matthew 28:16-20}
{Beautiful Music plays as the camera pans out showing Jesus walking into the Sunset, then rising up toward Heaven.}

Do you know Jesus as your Savior? Have you been adopted into the Family of God? If not, say this Prayer. Right now. Wherever you may be. Say it in your own words, and do not doubt in your heart. God will hear you. He will send the Spirit of Life to you. Let us Pray.

"Oh Heavenly Father, Lord God. I am a sinner. I know this. I know there is nothing I can do to change that. But I know you can. I accept Jesus's sacrifice for me. I repent my sins.

That's it. It really is that simple. Now go tell someone what you have just done. "That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved." {Romans 10:9} You need to find a Church that God leads you to, and be Baptized the way Jesus said to be.

Psalm 66

Psalm 66


1 Make a joyful noise unto God, all ye lands:

2 Sing forth the honour of his name: make his praise glorious.

3 Say unto God, How terrible art thou in thy works! through the greatness of thy power shall thine enemies submit themselves unto thee.

4 All the earth shall worship thee, and shall sing unto thee; they shall sing to thy name. Selah.

5 Come and see the works of God: he is terrible in his doing toward the children of men.

6 He turned the sea into dry land: they went through the flood on foot: there did we rejoice in him.

7 He ruleth by his power for ever; his eyes behold the nations: let not the rebellious exalt themselves. Selah.

8 O bless our God, ye people, and make the voice of his praise to be heard:

9 Which holdeth our soul in life, and suffereth not our feet to be moved.

10 For thou, O God, hast proved us: thou hast tried us, as silver is tried.

11 Thou broughtest us into the net; thou laidst affliction upon our loins.

12 Thou hast caused men to ride over our heads; we went through fire and through water: but thou broughtest us out into a wealthy place.

13 I will go into thy house with burnt offerings: I will pay thee my vows,

14 Which my lips have uttered, and my mouth hath spoken, when I was in trouble.

15 I will offer unto thee burnt sacrifices of fatlings, with the incense of rams; I will offer bullocks with goats. Selah.

16 Come and hear, all ye that fear God, and I will declare what he hath done for my soul.

17 I cried unto him with my mouth, and he was extolled with my tongue.

18 If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me:

19 But verily God hath heard me; he hath attended to the voice of my prayer.

20 Blessed be God, which hath not turned away my prayer, nor his mercy from me.

Spirit Wars 5, The Dark Lord Strikes Back

The Dark Lord Strikes Back,


{Dark Heavy March Music plays,} as the camera pans down to see The Dark Lord observing our Hero The Lord Jesus Christ and His Twelve Disciples, going about God's Work. He watches as Jesus Teaches and equips the Twelve.
"And he called to him his twelve disciples and gave them authority over unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal every disease and every affliction." {Matthew 10:1}
The Dark Lord watches as Jesus sends out the Twelve.
"These twelve Jesus sent out, instructing them, “Go nowhere among the Gentiles and enter no town of the Samaritans but go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. And proclaim as you go, saying, ‘The kingdom of heaven is at hand. Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse lepers, and cast out demons. You received without paying; give without pay. Acquire no gold or silver or copper for your belts, no bag for your journey, or two tunics or sandals or a staff, for the laborer deserves his food. And whatever town or village you enter, find out who is worthy in it and stay there until you depart. As you enter the house, greet it. And if the house is worthy, let your peace come upon it, but if it is not worthy, let your peace return to you. And if anyone will not receive you or listen to your words, shake off the dust from your feet when you leave that house or town. Truly, I say to you, it will be more bearable on the day of judgment for the land of Sodom and Gomorrah than for that town." {Matthew 10:5-15}
The Dark Lord knows he cannot allow this to happen. So he turns the hearts of Man even more dark and generates this pure and unadulterated hate against Jesus and all that Follow Him.

{Quiet Beautiful Music Plays.} However, Jesus senses this and warns His Disciples.
"Behold, I am sending you out as sheep in the midst of wolves, so be wise as serpents and innocent as doves. Beware of men, for they will deliver you over to courts and flog you in their synagogues, and you will be dragged before governors and kings for my sake, to bear witness before them and the Gentiles.When they deliver you over, do not be anxious how you are to speak or what you are to say, for what you are to say will be given to you in that hour. For it is not you who speak, but the Spirit of your Father speaking through you. Brother will deliver brother over to death, and the father his child, and children will rise against parents and have them put to death, and you will be hated by all for my names sake. But the one who endures to the end will be saved. When they persecute you in one town, flee to the next, for truly, I say to you, you will not have gone through all the towns of Israel before the Son of Man comes."
Jesus knows that the only way the Dark Lord can even think about winning is to have Man Hate the Truth. Hate not Love the Lord. He knows that the World, which belongs to the Dark Lord already, hates Him already. So He warns all that wish to Follow after Him {Jesus} that the World will hate them as well.
"If the world hates you, know that it has hated me before it hated you." {John 15:18}
Some of the Saints witness this, yet the Message is getting out. So Jesus increases His assault. He sends out 72
"After these things, the Lord appointed other seventy also and sent them two and two before his face into every city and place, whither he himself would come. Therefore said he unto them, The harvest truly is great, but the laborers are few: pray ye, therefore, the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth laborers into his harvest." {Luke 10:1-2}
Jesus grew in fame and the Hatred toward Him grew as well. The whole time He openly showed them who He was. He toward them Plainly.
"Jesus said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I am." {John 8:58}

"Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep. All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them. I am the door: by me, if any man enters in, he shall be saved and shall go in and out, and find pasture. The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I have come that they might have life and that they might have it more abundantly. I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep." {John 10:7-11}

"Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." {John 14:6}
The more Jesus told them the truth, the more they sought to kill Him. {Dark Heavy March Music plays} The Dark Lord is successful in turning one of the Saints, Judas Iscariot, to the Dark Side and sets him up to betray Jesus.
"Rise, let us be going: behold, he is at hand that doth betray me. And while he yet spake, lo, Judas, one of the twelve, came, and with him a great multitude with swords and staves, from the chief priests and elders of the people.
Now he that betrayed him gave them a sign, saying, Whomsoever I shall kiss, that same is he: hold him fast. And forthwith he came to Jesus, and said, Hail, master; and kissed him. And Jesus said unto him, Friend, wherefore art thou come? Then came they, and laid hands on Jesus and took him. And, behold, one of them which were with Jesus stretched out his hand, and drew his sword, and struck a servant of the high priest's, and smote off his ear.

Then said Jesus unto him, Put up again thy sword into his place: for all they that take the sword shall perish with the sword. Thinkest thou that I cannot now pray to my Father, and he shall presently give me more than twelve legions of angels? But how then shall the scriptures be fulfilled, that thus it must be?

In that same hour said Jesus to the multitudes, Are ye come out as against a thief with swords and staves for to take me? I sat daily with you teaching in the temple, and ye laid no hold on me. But all this was done, that the scriptures of the prophets might be fulfilled. Then all the disciples forsook him and fled. And they that had laid hold on Jesus led him away to Caiaphas the high priest, where the scribes and the elders were assembled." {Matthew 26:46-57}
They brought Him before Leaders. Stripped Him, abused Him. Tortured Him, and brought Him before the People who called for His Crucifixion.
"And when they were come unto a place called Golgotha, that is to say, a place of a skull, They gave him vinegar to drink mingled with gall: and when he had tasted thereof, he would not drink. And they crucified him, and parted his garments, casting lots: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, They parted my garments among them, and upon my vesture did they cast lots. And sitting down they watched him there; And set up over his head his accusation written, This Is Jesus The King Of The Jews.

Then were there two thieves crucified with him, one on the right hand, and another on the left. And they that passed by reviled him, wagging their heads, And saying, Thou that destroyest the temple, and buildest it in three days, save thyself. If thou be the Son of God, come down from the cross. Likewise also the chief priests mocking him, with the scribes and elders, said, He saved others; himself he cannot save. If he be the King of Israel, let him now come down from the cross, and we will believe him. He trusted in God; let him deliver him now, he will have him: for he said, I am the Son of God.

The thieves also, which were crucified with him, cast the same in his teeth. Now from the sixth hour there was darkness over all the land unto the ninth hour. And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? Some of them that stood there, when they heard that, said, This man calleth for Elias. And straightway one of them ran, and took a spunge, and filled it with vinegar, and put it on a reed, and gave him to drink. The rest said, Let be, let us see whether Elias will come to save him.

Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost. And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent; And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose, And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many. Now when the centurion, and they that were with him, watching Jesus, saw the earthquake, and those things that were done, they feared greatly, saying, Truly this was the Son of God."
The camera pans out with the image of Jesus on the Cross, lifeless, and the Dark Lord raises his hand in victory.

Do you know Jesus as your Savior? Have you been adopted into the Family of God? If not, say this Prayer. Right now. Wherever you may be. Say it in your own words, and do not doubt in your heart. God will hear you. He will send the Spirit of Life to you. Let us Pray.

Psalm 65

Psalm 65


1 Praise waiteth for thee, O God, in Sion: and unto thee shall the vow be performed.

2 O thou that hearest prayer, unto thee shall all flesh come.

3 Iniquities prevail against me: as for our transgressions, thou shalt purge them away.

4 Blessed is the man whom thou choosest, and causest to approach unto thee, that he may dwell in thy courts: we shall be satisfied with the goodness of thy house, even of thy holy temple.

5 By terrible things in righteousness wilt thou answer us, O God of our salvation; who art the confidence of all the ends of the earth, and of them that are afar off upon the sea:

6 Which by his strength setteth fast the mountains; being girded with power:

7 Which stilleth the noise of the seas, the noise of their waves, and the tumult of the people.

8 They also that dwell in the uttermost parts are afraid at thy tokens: thou makest the outgoings of the morning and evening to rejoice.

9 Thou visitest the earth, and waterest it: thou greatly enrichest it with the river of God, which is full of water: thou preparest them corn, when thou hast so provided for it.

10 Thou waterest the ridges thereof abundantly: thou settlest the furrows thereof: thou makest it soft with showers: thou blessest the springing thereof.

11 Thou crownest the year with thy goodness; and thy paths drop fatness.

12 They drop upon the pastures of the wilderness: and the little hills rejoice on every side.

13 The pastures are clothed with flocks; the valleys also are covered over with corn; they shout for joy, they also sing.

Spirit Wars 4, A New Hope

A New Hope


{Quiet Beautiful music plays as the Camera pans down to see a man asleep in bed.}
"Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost. And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name Jesus: for he shall save his people from their sins.

Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.

Then Joseph being raised from sleep did as the angel of the Lord had bidden him, and took unto him his wife: And knew her not till she had brought forth her firstborn son: and he called his name Jesus." {Matthew 1:20-25}
From the Fall of Man and the Dark One's rise to power, there has never been a more significate event such as the Birth of the Christ. The camera pans out and next, we see this raggedy man in the Wilderness.
" In those days came John the Baptist, preaching in the wilderness of Judaea, And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. For this is he that was spoken of by the prophet Esaias, saying, The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight. And the same John had his raiment of camel's hair, and a leathern girdle about his loins; and his meat was locusts and wild honey.

Then went out to him Jerusalem, and all Judaea, and all the region round about Jordan, And were baptized of him in Jordan, confessing their sins. But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees come to his baptism, he said unto them, O generation of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come? Bring forth therefore fruits meet for repentance: And think not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to our father: for I say unto you, that God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham. And now also the axe is laid unto the root of the trees: therefore every tree which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down and cast into the fire.

I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance. but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire:" {Matthew 3:1-11}
Little did John realize, Jesus was coming to him this day.
"Then cometh Jesus from Galilee to Jordan unto John, to be baptized of him. But John forbad him, saying, I have need to be baptized of thee, and comest thou to me? And Jesus answering said unto him, Suffer it to be so now: for thus it becometh us to fulfill all righteousness. Then he suffered him. And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him: And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased." {Matthew 3:13-17}
{Dark Heavy March Music plays.} The Dark Lord is not happy with this event. He knows that he must attempt to turn Jesus to the Dark Side.
"Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil. And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights, he was afterward an hungered. And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread. But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.

Then the devil taketh him up into the holy city, and setteth him on a pinnacle of the temple, And saith unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down: for it is written, He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: and in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone. Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.

Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them; And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me. Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.

Then the devil leaveth him, and, behold, angels came and ministered unto him." {Matthew 4:1-11}
Jesus then came down from the high place even more so endowed with Power and Grace from above. He knows that he needs to create a Rebel Alliance to fight against the Dark Lord and to overthrow his Powers and Principalities. He won the first Duel, but the Dark Lord was still very much alive and Powerful.

So first He comes across Simon (whom he named Peter), and Andrew (Peter’s brother). Then James, John, Philip, Bartholomew. Then coming across a Table of Customs, He finds Matthew. Then Thomas, James (son of Alphaeus), Simon (who was called the Zealot), Judas (son of James), and then finally Judas Iscariot.

With His Power endowed from on high and His Twelve chosen, Jesus prepares to train them to take His place and for them to train others, increasing the Rebel Alliance, in order to fight against the Dark Lord and restore the Relationship between God and Man. To bridge the Gap that was placed there by the Fall of Man back in the beginning.

The camera pans out with {Beautiful Music playing} as you see the 13 standing with Jesus at the center, and the 12 surrounding Him, ready to learn.

There truly is a War going on right now, as we speak. You ARE on one side of the other. It is time to chose and to chose wisely. Do you know Jesus as your Savior? Have you been adopted into the Family of God? If not, say this Prayer. Right now. Wherever you may be. Say it in your own words, and do not doubt in your heart. God will hear you. He will send the Spirit of Life to you. Let us Pray.

"Oh Heavenly Father, Lord God. I am a sinner. I know this. I know there is nothing I can do to change that. But I know you can. I accept Jesus's sacrifice for me. I repent my sins. Please send the Spirit of Adoption into my life. Help me to get to know the real you. Save me. Please. In the name of Jesus, Amen!"

That's it. It really is that simple. Now go tell someone what you have just done. "That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved." {Romans 10:9} You need to find a Church that God leads you to, and be Baptized the way Jesus said to be. You are now a Child of God. A new Creature. You "have put off the old man with his deeds, and have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him." {Colossians 3:10}

Psalm 64

Psalm 64



1 Hear my voice, O God, in my prayer: preserve my life from fear of the enemy.

2 Hide me from the secret counsel of the wicked; from the insurrection of the workers of iniquity:

3 Who whet their tongue like a sword, and bend their bows to shoot their arrows, even bitter words:

4 That they may shoot in secret at the perfect: suddenly do they shoot at him, and fear not.

5 They encourage themselves in an evil matter: they commune of laying snares privily; they say, Who shall see them?

6 They search out iniquities; they accomplish a diligent search: both the inward thought of every one of them, and the heart, is deep.

7 But God shall shoot at them with an arrow; suddenly shall they be wounded.

8 So they shall make their own tongue to fall upon themselves: all that see them shall flee away.

9 And all men shall fear, and shall declare the work of God; for they shall wisely consider of his doing.

10 The righteous shall be glad in the Lord, and shall trust in him; and all the upright in heart shall glory.

Spirit Wars 3, The Way of Man

The Way of Man


As we open we see the Baby floating in the Basket. Exodus 2:5-10
"And the daughter of Pharaoh came down to wash herself at the river, and her maidens walked along by the river's side; and when she saw the ark among the flags, she sent her maid to fetch it. And when she had opened it, she saw the child: and, behold, the babe wept. And she had compassion on him, and said, This is one of the Hebrews' children.

Then said his sister to Pharaoh's daughter, Shall I go and call to thee a nurse of the Hebrew women, that she may nurse the child for thee? And Pharaoh's daughter said to her, Go. And the maid went and called the child's mother. And Pharaoh's daughter said unto her, Take this child away, and nurse it for me, and I will give thee thy wages. And the women took the child and nursed it. And the child grew, and she brought him unto Pharaoh's daughter, and he became her son. And she called his name Moses: and she said because I drew him out of the water."
God Blessed Moses and Chose him for this role. To set God's People Free and to bring about the destruction of Pharoh and his Rule. He appeared to him in a burning Bush. He equipped him with a Rod, and with Aaron, with the Words to say.

He was with Moses and horrors unto Pharoh.

Plague 1 — water turned into blood; fish died. ...
Plague 2 — frogs. ...
Plagues 3 and 4 — biting insects and wild animals. ...
Plagues 5 and 6 — livestock disease and boils. ...
Plague 7 — fiery hail. ...
Plague 8 — locusts. ...
Plague 9 — darkness.
Plague 10- Death of Firstborn Son.

Yet still, in all that, Pharoh tried to kill Moses, and in turn, perished in the Red Sea. Now God appears to Moses and gives him the Ten Commandments, Exodus 20

You shall have no other gods before Me.
You shall not make idols.
You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain.
Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.
Honor your father and your mother.
You shall not murder.
You shall not commit adultery.
You shall not steal.
You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.
You shall not covet.


Simply Put, God told Man that if he Loves God with all his Heart, Soul, and Mind, he will keep these Commandments and they will Keep him.

{Dark March Music plays.} Yet the ways of man are continually evil. Golden Idols, Witches and Warlocks rise up. False Religions rise up Evil Kings and even Godly Kings rise up and turn to Evil Deeds. One such King? David.

David was a youngest and smallest of all his Brothers, yet, he was the most Faithful toward God. He slew the most feared Giant Goliath without Armor and with a mere Rock. God made him King at 30 years of age. All was well and God was with David and he grew to be a great King. Yet, the Dark Lord tempted David with Sin. David gave in.
"And it came to pass in an evening tide, that David arose from off his bed, and walked upon the roof of the king's house: and from the roof, he saw a woman washing herself; and the woman was very beautiful to look upon. And David sent and inquired after the woman. And one said, Is not this Bathsheba, the daughter of Eliam, the wife of Uriah the Hittite? And David sent messengers, and took her;, and She came in unto him, and he lay with her; for she was purified from her uncleanness: and she returned unto her house." {2 Samuel 11:2-4}
Because of this, Bathsheba became pregnant. Out of fear of this, David then arranged for the death of Bathsheba's Husband Uriah. All this done by a Man who God said was "a man after his own heart." {1 Samuel 13:14}

God sent the Law. His people ignored it. He Sent Prophets. They were ignored, abused, and even killed. Everything God tried to do to bring back that relationship with Man that He had once had with Adam, failed. So he sent a Prophet named Isaiah to tell Man what he planned to do.
"Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the Lord revealed? For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him.

He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not. Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him, and with his stripes, we are healed.

All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way, and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all. He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep, before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth. He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken. And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death; because he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth.

Yet it pleased the Lord to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the Lord shall prosper in his hand. He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for he shall bear their iniquities.

Therefore will I divide him a portion with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong; because he hath poured out his soul unto death: and he was numbered with the transgressors, and he bears the sin of many and made intercession for the transgressors." {Isaiah 53}
As the {quiet and beautiful music plays,} the Camera pans out we see the Faithful looking toward the Horizon, waiting for a New Hope.

Do you know Jesus as your Savior? Have you been adopted into the Family of God? If not, say this Prayer. Right now. Wherever you may be. Say it in your own words, and do not doubt in your heart. God will hear you. He will send the Spirit of Life to you. Let us Pray.

"Oh Heavenly Father, Lord God. I am a sinner. I know this. I know there is nothing I can do to change that. But I know you can. I accept Jesus's sacrifice for me. I repent my sins. Please send the Spirit of Adoption into my life. Help me to get to know the real you. Save me. Please. In the name of Jesus, Amen!"


That's it. It really is that simple. Now go tell someone what you have just done. "That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved." {Romans 10:9} You need to find a Church that God leads you to, and be Baptized the way Jesus said to be. You are now a Child of God. A new Creature. You "have put off the old man with his deeds, and have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him." {Colossians 3:10}

Psalm 63

Psalm 63



1 O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee: my soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is;

2 To see thy power and thy glory, so as I have seen thee in the sanctuary.

3 Because thy lovingkindness is better than life, my lips shall praise thee.

4 Thus will I bless thee while I live: I will lift up my hands in thy name.

5 My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness; and my mouth shall praise thee with joyful lips:

6 When I remember thee upon my bed, and meditate on thee in the night watches.

7 Because thou hast been my help, therefore in the shadow of thy wings will I rejoice.

8 My soul followeth hard after thee: thy right hand upholdeth me.

9 But those that seek my soul, to destroy it, shall go into the lower parts of the earth.

10 They shall fall by the sword: they shall be a portion for foxes.

11 But the king shall rejoice in God; every one that sweareth by him shall glory: but the mouth of them that speak lies shall be stopped.
