Strange Incense

This is a continuance of a teaching mentioned in the post: Testimony of Hearing from God. (Edited: I spoke incorrectly. I had thought this was a continuance of a teaching, but it was not. It was a warning to me. I will leave the areas of truth and remove what I thought God was saying to me on this topic). I pray these lessons and confessions will bless you, in Jesus name. Amen.

Leviticus 10:1 And Nadab and Abihu, the sons of Aaron, took either of them his censer, and put fire therein, and put incense thereon, and offered strange fire before the LORD, which he commanded them not.

When it comes to this strange fire, there are a few different views of this. I.e. A couple of verses later, the Lord talks about not drinking wine or strong drink, and then coming into His presence, lest you die. We can say that Nadab and Abihu may have been drunk. We can also say that they were unclean. There is another view that they took fire from another source than the altar, thus offered strange incense burning on this fire. We can see many different avenues the Word takes us on this, but the absolute rooted truth as to why they died with this strange incense offering was – “..which He commanded them not.”

Testimony of Hearing from God

Why me? I use to ask God that question all of the time. Why? Why do you bother with me? Why is it that I experience these ‘coincidences’? He repeatedly responded, “Reveal them.”

It’s because He loves His creation, that’s why. He loves me, He loves you.. He loves all of us. Thank you God for this testimony about hearing from you. I pray it goes forth and edifies and encourages the body, in Jesus name. amen –

Declaration of Psalm 22

Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?

Well, after a few years of listening to multiple sides of this scripture in the Church, the Helper helped reveal something. I’m not going to say “I have the answer! You must get this! This is the truth!” I’m only sharing what the Lord showed me via a prayerful request for Teaching on this scripture. The Lord’s answer was – pay attention to the context.. Huh, imagine that…

Testimony of a Wake Up Call

Thank you Lord for this testimony of a wake up call. I pray it blesses you.

For the past couple of weeks, the furnace was periodically not igniting the electronic pilot light, which caused the exhaust fan to continually run. It would happen around 1-2 times a day. A slight bump on the electronic ignition module would kick it in. I thought it was fixed, but apparently it was not.

As I went to bed Tuesday night, I began to worry about the pilot not lighting in the middle of the night and the exhaust fan burning up because of it continually running. I remember self-talk responding with something like: “Don’t worry, the Lord is with you. He will help you and take care of this” and a sense of peace came over me. Trust..

At 4:27 a.m., I get a wake up call from God. It was a spiritual phone call. I just woke up and immediately felt/heard “check the furnace”. I went to check. As I walk by the thermostat, I notice that the furnace should have just kicked on (temp in the house was 1 degree lower than the thermostat setting), but the furnace didn’t light.

The next day, I was taking a look at it. I knew the Lord was helping me and I felt confident that He had shown me where the problem was at (in the connection from the wiring). I placed a piece of tape to secure the wire in place, and the furnace hasn’t shut off since. Praise the Lord, my God and my Helper. Thank you Lord.

Standing Against the Spirit of Jezebel

Recently, the Lord has been speaking to me about the spirit of Jezebel. This is a dangerous and wicked spirit that I think we all should familiarize ourselves with. After understanding the characteristics of this spirit, I’m seeing an onslaught going on around me.

On one front, I must confess that this spirit has directly influenced me and I have made poor choices. Also, I can see how this spirit is involved in attempts to influence me through others. So far, I have been influenced, but God Almighty is now teaching me, giving me eyes to see, and words to speak against this wicked spirit of Jezebel. Today, I surrender this over to the King of kings and I begin standing against the spirit of Jezebel, in His name. Amen –

Betrayal of the Ages

This is from a an awesome video, which I will link to at the bottom. The preacher speaks of a great betrayal of the ages, and it’s called humanism. I have been deceived too on this matter. It’s probably not a stretch to say that quite a few Christians are deceived as well. Please, I urge you brothers and sisters to evaluate this and examine yourself because you very well may be deceived as well. This is very important…
