We have false prophets, individuals that may have started out on the right foot… But have gone afoul of the leading.

Let us share the following and see if you can figure out who, where, what was said and meant:

“…If you worship me, it will all be yours.”
Luke 4:7

A lot of ‘Amens’ are spoken or expressed! Really?
Foul!!!!

Why must we ensure that The Word is truly The Word and not some ‘concocted’ verse.  So many times I hear “Give and it will be given unto you…”
Pastors in Rolls Royce’s, self-owned planes, mansions, etc., etc…  No one said what they sow they should not reap, but what another sows should NOT be the source of your ‘plenty.’

In The Bible when it speaks of giving it is specific, yes! There are tithes, but in the early church, those with shared with those without! Do you have? Pray and share as The Spirit moves you. You are sowing in fields and will harvest aplenty.

This verse was shared as a video and it touched me. Yes, we ought to study everything and KNOW it is accurate!

All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting, and training in righteousness. But as it is written: “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, Nor have entered into the heart of man The things which God has prepared for those who Love Him.”

Y’all, this will be a blessing:

Even if and when we are unable, The Word gives us strength, a relationship with God that bears us through all.

Have you figured out who said the above to Whom?
Once again, I stress the necessary… Satan was saying this to Jesus! Yes, he is the prince of the Earth BUT God made it and HE is The King of all.

What has been spoken is. A point that I have made repeatedly is that The Universe was created before Satan was thrown out of Heaven; to the Earth. Yes, we have attempted to ‘age’ the Universe and we discover that ‘age’ is nothing. Existence is EVERYTHING, where you exist depends on your now.
In 2012, WMAP estimated the age of the universe to be 13.772 billion years, with an uncertainty of 59 million years. In 2013, Planck measured the age of the universe at 13.82 billion years.
Note that Satan was dismissed from Heaven and cast to Earth

This is how we read what the Bible says about Satan’s ouster from heaven. God’s angels were present when God created the world. As we learn from Job 38:7, where we read that during creation “the morning stars sang together and all the sons of God shouted for joy”. From this we may conclude that Satan had not yet become God’s enemy at creation. Yet shortly after he fell, because he tempted Adam and Eve to sin (Genesis 3).
Through his sin, Satan lost his privileged position as one of God’s angels. Yet he still had access to God in heaven, as we read in Job 1:7: “Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan also came among them”. Two Old Testament passages are often mentioned as referring to Satan being expelled from God’s presence: Isaiah 14:12-15 and Ezekiel 28:11-19. However, the primary reference seems to be to earthly kings rather than to Satan. So it is safer not to draw conclusions about Satan from these passages.

The most important part of the answer is: we know the end of the story. We know that Satan will be thrown in the deepest hell for all eternity at the end of the world (see Revelation 20:10). What comes before that, is not so easy to understand. There are various verses in the Bible about Satan. But it is not always clear to what time they are referring. It is not always clear how literal we should take them; and it is not even always clear which verses are about Satan and which not. Therefore a wide range of opinions exists among Christians on this subject. This is not very important, as it does not touch on our salvation.
God’s Angels
This is how we read what the Bible says about Satan’s ouster from Heaven. God’s angels were present when God created the world. As we learn from Job 38:7, where we read that during creation “the morning stars sang together and all the sons of God shouted for joy”. From this we may conclude that Satan had not yet become God’s enemy at creation. Yet shortly after he fell, because he tempted Adam and Eve to sin (Genesis 3).
Through his sin, Satan lost his privileged position as one of God’s angels. Yet he still had access to God in heaven, as we read in Job 1:7: “Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan also came among them”. Two Old Testament passages are often mentioned as referring to Satan being expelled from God’s presence: Isaiah 14:12-15 and Ezekiel 28:11-19. However, the primary reference seems to be to earthly kings rather than to Satan. So it is safer not to draw conclusions about Satan from these passages.
Satan fall
In the New Testament, Jesus refers to Satan’s fall twice. In Luke 10:17 He says “I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven”. This is in response to the remark by the disciples that they cast out demons. Most likely Jesus means that the power of Satan is diminishing through the disciples ministring in Jesus’ power, rather than a literal fall from heaven. In John 12:31 He says “now is the judgment of this world; now will the ruler of this world be cast out”. Jesus says here that through His death on the cross, Satan and his kingdom are defeated. It is not clear whether Jesus is talking about a literal casting out of heaven.
Satan is defeated
In Revelation 12 John sees a vision of the rebellion of Satan against God. After a description of how Satan fights against Christ, it says: “Now war arose in heaven, Michael and his angels fighting against the dragon. And the dragon and his angels fought back, but he was defeated, and there was no longer any place for them in heaven” (7-8). The conclusion of that is that “the accuser of our brothers has been thrown down, who accuses them day and night before our God” (10). From that it may be concluded that after Jesus broke Satan’s power by providing redemption for sin on the cross, Satan’s power to accuse was broken, and he lost the opportunity to stand before the throne of God like in the story of Job.
In summary, there are three major stages in Satan’s downfall. The first stage was when he rebelled against God and lost his position among God’s angels. The second stage was when Jesus broke his power through his death on the cross and took away his right to accuse the believers before God in heaven. The third stage will be at the end of the world when God will condemn Satan to hell.
One of the reasons I am in no way a supporter of any credit being taken for our duty (we owe it to our Creator.) Check this out:
Jesus said to the disciples, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.
Mark 16:15

Matthew 24:14 NKJV
“And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.”

In Matthew 24, Jesus’ disciples ask Him for the signs of the “close of the age.” Matthew 24:14 is significant for the end times because it tells us that the gospel will be spread throughout the world “and then the end will come.” This will be one last chance for non-believers to hear, believe and repent.
Psalms 96:3 NKJV
“Declare His glory among the nations, His wonders among all peoples.”

Psalm 96:3 is part of a hymn lifting up the Lord and praising Him for all that he has done. Much like we are eager to tell people when we are in love, the same should be true of God. We are so filled with love for Him and the blessings of the Spirit that we cannot keep silent.
Revelation 14:6-7 NKJV
“Then I saw another angel flying in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach to those who dwell on the earth—to every nation, tribe, tongue, and people— saying with a loud voice, ‘Fear God and give glory to Him, for the hour of His judgment has come; and worship Him who made heaven and earth, the sea and springs of water.’”

Y’all, it goes on and on, but I state again, read in it’s totality, understand what you read and test the Scripture:
Acts 17:11
The Bereans are models of right-minded followers. Though zealous to hear, they did not thoughtlessly or uncritically accept what Paul said. They first tested it for themselves from the Scriptures and then submitted themselves to following it.
Pursuing this course avoids the potentially disastrous “blind leading the blind” syndrome (Luke 6:39). Jesus’ statement warns us to be careful who we follow. If a leader can see no more than those who follow, it spells trouble for both. The Jews fell into this spiritual trap of presuming themselves as guides to the blind, though their lives did not qualify them for such a responsibility (Romans 2:19-24).
It also warns about the leadership of Jesus’ followers. A Christian cannot hope to act as a guide to others unless he himself clearly sees where he is going.
