Matthew 17:14-18

In order to understand my recent messages you can see my FB wall: Darien Masters

“And when they had come to the multitude, a man came to Him, kneeling down to Him and saying, “Lord, have mercy on my son, for he is an epileptic and suffers severely; for he often falls into the fire and often into the water. So I brought him to Your disciples, but they could not cure him.”

“Then Jesus answered and said, “O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you? How long shall I bear with you? Bring him here to Me.” And Jesus rebuked the demon, and it came out of him; and the child was cured from that very hour.”

Matthew 17:14-18

Jesus here challenges believers who fail to influence others with the power of His kingdom. Certainly I’ve influenced people alright. We see where that always gets me far too often.

My prayers were a difference maker until suddenly it seemed to just stop. Something was broken in the home, and no matter how much more I tried and how hard I prayed I could not get rid of the devil’s hold over the home. At one point I know I was about to impact things to turn around, and the devil gave himself a very strong foothold by bringing that one I call a vampire into the house. Then at another point I got a child, Grace back on board with Bible reading and prayer, and as I said once before, I felt a shift in the foundation. I felt it crack. The devil was angered, and so here I am banished from my own life that was a gift from God because somewhere, somehow I failed …

A lunatic is a person afflicted with epileptic or other disorders, which are always known to have a singular increase at the change and full of the moon. This explains werewolves I suppose.

But this lunacy was occasioned by a demon.

Matthew 17:18
Mark 9:17
Luke 9:38.

In this case, the devil intended to hide himself under the appearance of a natural disorder, that no supernatural means might be resorted to for his expulsion.

Luke 9:39.

The devil has similarly disguised himself as this vampire who has “related” to the mother of these children, stole my life and has put up this facade to keep a darkness in the home. It angered him that I helped Grace to see thru it. She could see her mother was acting wrong and making her lie to me. Now I am very scared to know if Grace has become infected or if God has kept her anchored to continue praying for me to return …

I also know the minds of that family are afflicted by some disorders. And the devil has harped on that greatly in the mind of their mother. Many of us are afflicted by something. Some just hide or keep it in check better.

This man in the scripture had brought his son to the disciples, not to the apostles. They had power over unclean spirits (Matthew 10:8) but he took the boy to others of God’s followers who attempted to work miracles. It is probable that many of His disciples attempted this who were not personal attendants on The Lord’s ministry (Mark 9:38)

I myself have sought greater power, influence and confidence in Jesus’ Holy Ghost works. I seemed to have had a grip on some at one time. I’d do anything to have it back and to lead this family with it once again …

“Faithless and perverse generation” These and the following words may be considered as spoken:

1. To the disciples, because of their unbelief, Matthew 17:20.

2. To the father of the possessed, who should have brought his son to Christ.

3. To the whole multitude, who were slow of heart to believe in Him as the Messiah, notwithstanding the miracles which He wrought.

Just as a faithless perversion has run me out of the house in which God appointed me …

And Jesus rebuked the devil for having afflicted the child, and commanded him to come out of the boy. “Mark 9:25” has recorded the words which Jesus used. Words implying reproof and command: “Thou dumb and deaf spirit, I charge thee come out of him, and enter no more into him.”

And the spirit cried, and with a mighty convulsion came out, leaving the child apparently dead. Jesus lifted him up by the hand and gave the child to his father.

There is a spirit or many spirits that have overrun my home and forced me out. I have prayed rebuke and for angels to swarm the home and cleanse it for my return. I do not know when, how or if it will happen. I only know it needs to. Grace needs me, my dog needs me, the others need me, my life there needs me, and I need them. I need my sanctuary and altar back. I need this redemption and to restore the home … to save their souls. As well as mine.

Universal Vindication

“And who is he who will harm you if you become followers of what is good? But even if you should suffer for righteousness’ sake, you are blessed. “And do not be afraid of their threats, nor be troubled.”

1 Peter 3:13-14

And who is he that will harm you, if ye be followers of that which is good?. This question is meant to imply, that in general, they need not expect evil if they lead an upright and benevolent life. Which may sound contradictory, but this is more likely a reference to the time after our lives here …

The idea is, that God would in general protect them, even thru harsh times, though the next verse shows that the apostle did not mean to teach that there would be absolute security, for it is implied there that they might be called to suffer for righteousness sake …

While it is true that the Savior was persecuted by wicked people, though His life was wholly spent in doing good; while it is true that the apostles were put to death, though following Jesus’ example, and while it is true that good people have often suffered persecution, though laboring only to do good, still it is true as a general rule that a life of integrity and benevolence conduces us to safety, even in a wicked world.

People who are upright and pure, who live to do good to others who are characteristically benevolent and who are imitators of God are those who usually pass life in most tranquility and security, and are often safe when nothing else would give security but confidence in their integrity.

Though in many cases a particular person may carry a certain burden for souls, and while seeing the tragic circumstances surrounding some people’s lives, the person becomes empathic … even after suffering persecution at their hands.

A man of a holy and pure life may, under the protection of God, rely on that character to carry him safely through the world and to bring him at last to an honored place. Or should he be calumniated or mistreated when living, and his sun set under a cloud, still his name will be vindicated, and justice will ultimately be done to him when he is dead. Simply meaning that vengeance will be God’s …

The world ultimately judges right respecting character, and renders “honor to whom honor is due.” Compare Psalm 37:3-6. I would be bold in saying that the universe (under God’s control) will set things right …

 

Zechariah 7:8-14 Lies 2

Then the word of the Lord came to Zechariah, saying, “Thus says the Lord of hosts:
 
‘Execute true justice,
Show mercy and compassion
Everyone to his brother.
Do not oppress the widow or the fatherless,
The alien or the poor.
Let none of you plan evil in his heart
Against his brother.’
 
“But they refused to heed, shrugged their shoulders, and stopped their ears so that they could not hear. Yes, they made their hearts like flint, refusing to hear the law and the words which the Lord of hosts had sent by His Spirit through the former prophets. Thus great wrath came from the Lord of hosts. Therefore it happened, that just as He proclaimed and they would not hear, so they called out and I would not listen,” says the Lord of hosts.“But I scattered them with a whirlwind among all the nations which they had not known. Thus the land became desolate after them, so that no one passed through or returned; for they made the pleasant land desolate.”
 
Zechariah 7:8-14
 
Other countries do not hate us for our freedom. What freedom you think exists is under completely false pretenses and ideals. They hate us because we have turned our backs on God …
 
They are against us for the horrors we allow our governments and military forces to reign down on them. They fight us not because they are terrorists, but because we desolate their lands for resources, oil, drugs and our own personal greed.
 
We support wars on their lands based entirely on lies or attacks carried out by our own government. Its called “rumors of war” for a reason. No war in the last 200 years of this country has ever been based in truth …
 
They do not hate us for our freedom. They are depicted as enemies to keep us hating the wrong people. All the while we are distracted by government sanctioned, highly trained attacks on our own people as they put the blame on yet another false enemy, a fall guy blasted all over the news.
 
We are intoxicated with fake politics and sports drama, dumbed down by t.v., school, vaccinations and pills. We allow ourselves to be bullied and pushed around by a protection racket legal system.
 
And when it all gets to be too much, instead of falling to our knees or actually fighting back, we turn to drinking, drug addictions or video games!
 
Now of course it is in season for millions of lost souls to celebrate and observe pagan traditions all in the name of God, who told us NOT to do such things!!!
 
You want to know why so many people are turning to witchcraft and other such lifestyles? They were taught BY THE CHURCH that its okay!
 
 

Playing Both Sides

So you support Trump, or any fake puppet in politics an call yourself a Christian person of God?
 
Despite various place sin the bible you people need to realize we have rulers and dictators. Not leaders of men, and certainly not appointed by God.
 
The Word says to trust in God to defend our rights. Of course there are also examples of defending one’s own home and cities from tyrants …
 
However, our “rights” are all taken away because we have removed God from EVERYTHING and have allowed the system to lead us astray. We depend on ourselves or the system to take care of our needs. We depend on money and self serving agendas to survive.
 
Only time we seek after God is when those methods fail. Or we seek Him to provide what WE see as our needs or someone else’s needs. No one is seeking after His will anymore.
 
The discernment to know the difference between good and evil has been washed away by our own personal baptism of greed and wanting. there is no heart for God anymore. Its all about having a heart of gold now.
 
We have blindly or lazily given over our trust and our integrity to those who would openly destroy us. We care more about sports and entertainment than anything else. We allow the medical and pharmaceutical companies to keep us sick and dependent on them. We send our children off to be re-educated and reprogrammed for financial slavery, and when any child cannot keep up they are treated like test subjects for all sorts of scientific practices that only messes them up even more.
 
Some of our worst crimes against God are the acceptance and willful act of celebrating paganism, divorcing without cause, buying into false wars, and most of all just sitting idly by shaking our heads at the atrocities surrounding us everyday. Yet we finally draw the line at the homosexual controversy … which in the end is what got Soddom and Gomorrah fried!
 
Its time to do more than just wake up folks. Its time to move and prepare. You think God is just going to waltz in and sweep you away when you have done NOTHING for His Kingdom? Your blind arrogance sickens me.
 
God doesn’t need talkers, He doesn’t need you to attract more crowds with popularized worldly methods. He needs you to both seek and tell THE TRUTH! he need doers of His word as much as speakers of it. The church has become a mockery of the Holy Ghost!
 
Now I understand in this society we are plagued by that we can be very limited by the regulations of constant disabling set backs. A lot of which we caused ourselves. Others laid down by government law and protection racket rule. I know form personal experience just how little effect holding up any moral standards can have. I also know too well the negative reactions it brings and the persecution that follows.
 
Fine, great so they don’t want the truth, they don’t want to hear it. Guess what? All God wants is for you to have tried! You cannot have a burden for souls or feel the anguish of God’s heart if you don’t see the reality of humanity at it’ worst. That would mean have no real conscious.
 
God calls many, many do not listen. Only few are chosen for a reason. What if that reason is because we ignored the call … ?
