4/25/06 - [ I Believe That...]

The Bible is the inspired Word of GOD, a revelation from GOD to mankind, the infallible rule of faith and conduct, and is superior to conscience and reason, but not contrary to reason (2 Timothy 3:15-16; 1 Peter 2:2).

The one true GOD has revealed Himself as the eternally self-existent, self-revealed "I AM" and has further revealed Himself as embodying the principles of relationship and association, i.e., Father, Son, and Holy Ghost (Deuteronomy 6:4; Mark 12:29; Isaiah 43:10, 11; Matthew 28:19).

That man was created good and upright, for GOD said "Let us make man in our image, after our likeness." But man, by voluntary transgression, fell, and his only hope of redemption is in JESUS Christ the Son of GOD (Genesis 1:26-31: 3:1-7; Romans 5:12-21).

The grace of GOD, which brings salvation, has appeared to all men, through the preaching of repentance toward GOD and faith toward the Lord JESUS Christ; man is saved by the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Ghost, and, being justified by grace through faith, he becomes an heir of GOD according to the hope of eternal life (Titus 2:11; Romans 10:13-15; Luke 23:47; Titus 3:5-7). The "inward" evidence to the believer of his salvation is the direct witness of the Spirit (Romans 8:16). The "outward" evidence of his salvation to all men is a life of righteousness and true holiness.

The ordinance of baptism by a burial with Christ should be observed as commanded in the Scriptures, by all who have repented and in their hearts have truly believed in Christ as Savior and Lord. In so doing, they have the body washed in pure water as an outward symbol of cleansing, while their heart has already been sprinkled with the blood of Christ as an inner cleansing. Thus, they declare to the world that they have died with JESUS and that they have also been raised with Him to walk in newness of life (Matthew 28:19; Acts 10:47-48; Romans 6:4; Acts 20:21; Hebrews 10:22).

The Lord's Supper, consisting of the elements, bread and the fruit of the vine, is the symbol expressing our sharing the divine nature of our Lord JESUS Christ (2 Peter 1:4), a memorial of His suffering and death (1 Corinthians 11:26). It is enjoined on all believers "until He comes."

That all believers are entitled to, and should ardently expect, and earnestly seek, the promise of the Father, the baptism in the Holy Ghost and fire, according to the command of our Lord JESUS Christ. This was the normal experience of all in the early Christian church. With it comes the enduement of power for life and service, the bestowment of the gifts and their uses in the work of the ministry (Luke 24:29; Acts 1:4; 1:8; 1 Corinthians 12:1-31). This wonderful experience is distinct from and subsequent to the experience of the new birth (Acts 10:44-46; 11:14-16; 15:7-9).

In the baptism of believers as a unique work of the Holy Ghost—an evidence of which is the speaking with other tongues as the Spirit of GOD gives them utterance (Acts 2:4). The manifestation of speaking in other tongues, in this instance, is the same in essence as the gift of tongues (1 Corinthians 12:4-10, 28) but different in purpose and use.

The Scriptures teach a life of holiness without which no man shall see the Lord. By the power of the Holy Ghost we are able to obey the command, "Be ye holy, for I am holy." Entire sanctification is the will of GOD for all believers, and should be earnestly pursued by walking in obedience to GOD's Word (Hebrews 12:14; 1 Peter 1:15-16; 1 Thessalonians 5:23-24; 1 John 2:6).

The church is the body of Christ, the habitation of GOD through the Spirit with divine appointments for the fulfillment of the great commission. Each believer, born of the Spirit, is an integral part of the church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven (Ephesians 1:22-23; 2:22; Hebrews 12:33).

A divinely called and scripturally ordained ministry has been provided by our Lord for a twofold purpose: The evangelization of the world, and the edifying of the Body of Christ (Mark 16:15-20; Ephesians 4:11-13).

Deliverance from sickness is provided for in the atonement and is the privilege of all believers (Isaiah 53:4-5; Matthew 8:16-17).

The resurrection of those who have fallen asleep in Christ and their translation, together with those who are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord, is the imminent and blessed hope of the church (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17; Titus 2:12; 1 Corinthians 15:51-52; Romans 8:23).

The revelation of the Lord JESUS Christ from heaven, the salvation of national Israel, and the Millennial reign of Christ on earth is the Scriptural promise and the world's hope (2 Thessalonians 1:17; Revelation 19:11-14; Romans 11:26-27; Revelation 20:1-7).

The devil and his angels, the beast and the false prophet, and whosoever is not found written in the Book of Life, shall be consigned to everlasting punishment in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death (Revelation 19:20; Revelation 20:10-15).

"According to His promise, look for new heavens, and a new earth wherein dwelleth righteousness" (2 Peter 3:13; Revelation 21:1).

4/13/06 - [Jezebel and Athaliah At The Gate]

Sandie Freed:
"Jezebel and Athaliah At The Gate"

The Vision of the Throne

I was praying for God's glory to manifest upon the earth in a more tangible way. Suddenly, I had a vision of God's throne. Angels were beholding His divine glory. The angels turned to look at me, as if they were revealing a hidden secret by allowing me to see their faces. Their faces were lit with a brilliant light, I knew they had SEEN His glory, and it was His glory which caused this brilliant light upon their countenances. I was then made aware of God's throne room strategy for today. The angels were being released to show forth God's glory. There would be multiplied measures of angelic activity among us, and their purpose was to reveal God's glory! They would be bringing divine impartations, healings, and warfare strategies of victory. God's glory would be seen upon the prayers of the Saints as He answered their prayers with realms of His glory.

Then, I saw Jesus approach the Father. Jesus asked the Father, "Can I go now?" I knew that Jesus was asking to return to the earth and gather His own.

The Father answered, "No, it is not yet time. They must see and experience the fullness of My glory first. There is still a realm of My glory that My people must press into. I have much to do in them and through them."

We Must Cry Out For His Glory!

Somehow I knew that God's people needed to cry out for more of His glory. I then saw a sea of hands lifted toward heaven, and the Saints began to touch God. As they touched Him, His face appeared to them and they were face-to-face with God. As they reached out to touch His glory, they touched His face, and then as a result they began to be changed into His image.

When the vision concluded, I cried for quite a while. I have once again realized that the breakthroughs to our victory and protection from the seducing spirits are determined by us crying out for His glory. We are also must be determined to co-labor with the Holy Spirit, and therefore show His glory to others. We must ask for the Holy Spirit to begin to reveal God's glory. Then we must commit to not trying to restrict Him--whichever way He decides to move in our lives. This would apply to personal lives, church services, businesses, etc.

We cannot settle just for His presence. We must press into experiencing more of His manifest GLORY which involves signs, wonders, and miracles. We cannot allow our mindsets and religious traditions to attempt to contain His glory. With open hearts and minds, we are to ASK for Him to be jealous over us. This will most certainly bring a fire of purity, but it will also release a fresh fire of zeal to seek His face!

I asked the Lord what we are to do to receive the full measure of His glory. He said that in order to fulfill our mission and assignments at this present time, we must first have the visitation of a greater level of glory. I realized that when God's glory comes, there are also seducing spirits at work at even greater levels of intensity. These seducing spirits are sitting at different gates blocking God's glory being released to us. In my book, Destiny Thieves, there is exposure of the seductions of Belial (the Accuser of the Brethren), the Amalekite spirit, Jezebel, and Athaliah (who is Jezebel's daughter). I then realized that Jezebel and her seed, Athaliah, were at the gate of entrance of God's glory released into our lives.

Jezebel and Athaliah: Evil Seducing Spirits of the Present Times

Jezebel was a seductive, manipulating woman who murdered, worshiped idols, and is Biblically linked to witchcraft and sorcery. It is this same spirit at work today to seduce the saints into sin, control, and apostasy. However, her SEED is even more active, more seducing, and more treacherous than Jezebel was!

Athaliah: A Generation of Evil

Athaliah is the spirit that attacks our generations. God is very concerned about the generations to come. Yet, at the same time, as our generations are coming forth to receive Godly inheritance there is a "generation of vipers" in the form of religious, Pharisees and Sadducees, strongholds of tradition that we need to be concerned about! In Matthew 12:34 Jesus addresses the "generation of vipers," which I believe refers to, and not inclusive to, the generation of Jezebel…Athaliah!

A viper is a venomous snake (spiritually representing seductiveness and craftiness) which is poisonous. It strikes swiftly with a fatal bite. Isn't this just like the devil? He blindsides us and then moves in quickly for the kill. Yet, there is hope! Remember Paul, when the viper attached itself to his arm, he shook the snake off into a fire? Paul's life was spared and the fire destroyed the snake! It is the very same for today. It will take a Holy Ghost fire to destroy the seducing spirits that lie in wait to deceive us. It is time to embrace the cleansing fire of God. This will insure our victory over the seductive plans of the enemy as well as prepare us for our future.

Be on Guard Against the Spirit of Athaliah!

Dear Ones, we need to be on guard against this strongly, seductive spirit. The name "Athaliah" means "whom Jehovah has afflicted." I am sure that this spirit plans to afflict God's children; we must be on guard during this intense season of revelation and understanding. However, God has already promised to defeat Jezebel and Athaliah. In Revelation 2:23 God has spoken that Jezebel's child (Athaliah) has been sentenced to death. In other words, Athaliah has been "afflicted" by God! One of the translations for the word "afflicted" is to "crush and trouble, to torment and make miserable." Saints of God, hear me, we can afflict Athaliah through our prayers. We can cause the plans of the seducing spirits to be troubled, crushed, and put to death as we come into unity. Unity involves being in agreement with His Word as well as being unified as One in Him. By speaking the Word over our situations and problems, we can bring torment to our adversary! And let's not forget this very powerful weapon…REPENT! Jezebel hates repentance. As we repent, it will thwart the enemy's plans against us and also, at the very same time, release God's glory into every situation!

Another interpretation for the name of Athaliah is "Jehovah is strong" implying that Jehovah will handle evil violently! I recall Chuck Pierce calling for a season of violent praise. Also, remember that the violent take the kingdom of God by force! (See Matthew 11:12-13)

Interestingly the name Athaliah also means "due season of Jehovah." Prophetically speaking, it is Jehovah's due season to destroy the seductive spirit of Jezebel and Athaliah by commissioning a violent militant force of Saints.

Embracing His Fire

If we are to enter this greater realm of God's glory, then we must watch over our gates of entrance and defeat Athaliah. We must keep her from affecting us and the generations to come. We must embrace the fire of God's presence, the refiner's fire that WILL come in the last days!

When we study the book of Daniel, it gives insight into the last days saying, "Many will be purified, made white, and refined, but the wicked shall do wickedly; and none of the wicked shall understand, but the wise shall understand." (Daniel 12:10) It is clear that God was alerting Daniel that the last days would involve a time of purification and refining the Saints. The wicked will not understand and run away from the fire, but the Saints will understand the fire and embrace it as necessary to receive the greater levels of His glory.

When we study about Athaliah, we see how it took the priesthood anointing to destroy her. Athaliah murdered her own male descendents to illegitimately secure the throne of authority in Judah. It was the priests who exposed Athaliah's illegitimate authority and crowned the true authority to the throne. When we study the qualifications of the priesthood, we realize that they were cleansed and purified and dedicated to the service of the Lord. It was the priests who prepared the temple and sacrifices inviting God's glory to appear. It will be the same priestly anointing that God will use in us today to destroy this enemy who stands at the gates of our breakthroughs! Remember this one important thing…it is not a priesthood of religion that will destroy our enemy; it is a priesthood of those in relationship with God.

How Do We Destroy the Spirits Blocking Our Breakthroughs?

In conclusion, this is our mandate:

Be committed to seek God's glory.

Embrace the fire. The fire involves purification and holiness, but also the fire of His power and glory.

Be a consecrated and dedicated priest unto the Lord.

Ask for God to be jealous over you….this will release the fire of purity but also release a zeal of passion for the Lord.

Allow the Holy Spirit to freely move in us, our church services, businesses, and every area of our lives.

Remove the restraints of fear, control, and religious mindsets and let Him move!

Pray that we clearly hear what the Holy Spirit is speaking, and that we are quick to respond and obey His leading.

Also, take time to KNOW the Holy Spirit!

Free yourself from "religious encumbrances." These are religious mindsets as to HOW God will move among us. Let GO completely. Let God show you His glory.

Destroy Jezebel and Athaliah through repentance of sin and seduction, becoming priests unto the Lord, and warring over our next generation.

Also, become violent praisers!
