DO YOU “KNOW” GOD?

IN HIM WE LIVE

For as I passed by, and beheld your devotions, I found an altar with this inscription, TO THE UNKNOWN GOD.  Whom therefore ye ignorantly worship, Him declare I unto you  (today most of the western world, at least are not ignorant about God; they have heard of Him, many have committed their lives to Him yet, I believe many of us DO NOT KNOW Him).

God that made the world and ALL things therein, seeing that He IS LORD of heaven and earth, dwelleth NOT in temples made with HANDS; neither is worshipped with MEN’S HANDS, as though He (God) needed any thing, seeing he GIVETH TO ALL LIFE, and BREATH, and ALL THINGS; and hath made of ONE blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath DETERMINED THE TIMES BEFORE APPOINTED, and the BOUNDS OF THEIR HABITATION;

That they (all of mankind) should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after Him, and find Him though He be not far from every one of us (NIV translation says, “God did this so that men would seek Him and perhaps reach out for Him and find Him…”) :

FOR IN HIM WE LIVE,  AND MOVE,  AND HAVE OUR BEING; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also His offspring.  Forasmuch then as we ARE the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man’s device (the idols , things, people, traditons of men, doctrines of men, etc.  we have created to take 1st place BEFORE God). 

And the TIMES OF THIS IGNORANCE GOD WINKED AT; BUT   NOW   COMMANDETH   ALL  MEN  EVERYWHERE  TO  REPENT:  because He hath appointed a day, in which He will judge the world in righteousness by that Man (Jesus, God in the flesh) whom He hath ordained; whereof He hath given assurance unto ALL MEN, in that He hath raised Him (Jesus) from the dead.  (Acts 17: 23 – 31)

Jesus tells us (John 10: 9 – 14) that He alone is the door and that it is through Him that man shall be saved,  go in and out,  and find food that sustains.  The thief (Satan and his demons) comes only to steal our faith, kill us in any number of devoious, seducing ways, and to destroy our  hope, which is found ONLY in Jesus.  Jesus tells us that He is the good Shepherd who gave and continues to GIVE His sheep (all who believe) His LIFE.  But the hireling (false teachers, false leaders, anything or anyone the enemy will use as able) will run at the first sign of unmasking and all those who trusted him and whom the hireling did not care about, will be scattered & left to die.   But Jesus seeks ALL the sheep who are lost and who will hear His voice and they will be part of ONE fold and will be watched over, and loved by  Jesus, the ONE TRUE SHEPHERD.  Jesus also said,  ‘And ye shall KNOW the truth, and the TRUTH shall make you free’  (John 8: 32).   Praise the Lord!   Do you hear His voice calling you?

    The Most Important Prayer

    “Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus. But when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink, cried out, ‘Lord, save me!'” (Matthew 14:29-30)

    Scripture Focus: Matthew 14:22-33

    Peter had extraordinary faith when he stepped out of the boat. But that faith wavered when he realized walking on water was impossible. Fear came, and he began to sink. He knew he was in danger of drowning. Nothing he could do would rescue him from certain death. Then he prayed the most important prayer anyone could pray: “Lord, save me!” Immediately, Jesus reached out His hand and caught him.

    There came a time in my life when I, like Peter, knew I couldn’t save myself. Only Jesus could rescue me from eternal death. So I admitted my need for Him and prayed Peter’s same prayer. “Lord, save me!” He immediately came into my life. I knew I was safe forever.

    If you are reading this and have never called out to Jesus to save you, now is the perfect time. No matter where you are or how the turmoil of this world swirls around you, this is time to admit you cannot save yourself.

    Put all your faith, hope and confidence in Jesus whose mighty arm reaches out and pulls you to safety.

    • Thank you Pastor Carlos for this word.

      We can have all the FAITH that is possible to have; BUT WHEN YOU PUT NO ACTION TO IT…it just remains faith with no GOD MOVEMENT in the miraculous possible.

      Sometimes it is hard for me to put my thoughts into words, but in this instance a simple day-to-day example of this would be: I pour a glass of juice and set it down, continue to look at it waiting, but the juice remains in the glass. It is only when I pick it up, put it to my lips, open my mouth, and drink that I enjoy the fruit.

      When we step out IN FAITH; not allowing ourselves (by God’s grace) to be distracted from BELIEVING ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE IN GOD; then do what you are called to do; THEN God will show you His glorious power and majesty! Praise the Lord! 🙂

    VISION OF COMING DECEPTION

    A Prophetic Vision by
    StanleyFrodsham


    “When I visit My people in mighty revival power, it is to prepare them for the darkness ahead. With the glory shall come great darkness, for the glory is to prepare My people for the darkness. I will enable My people to go through because of the visitation of My Spirit. Take heed to yourselves lest you be puffed up and think that you have arrived. Many shall be puffed up as in the olden days, for many then received My message but they continued not in it. Did I not anoint Jehu? Yet the things I desired were not accomplished in his life. Listen to the messengers, but do not hold men’s persons in admiration. For many whom I shall anoint mightily, with signs and miracles, shall be lifted up and shall fall away by the wayside.
    I do not do this willingly; I have made provision that they might stand. I call many into this ministry and equip them; but remember that many shall fall. They shall be like bright lights and people shall delight in them. But they shall be taken over by deceiving spirits and shall lead many of My people away.

    “Hearken diligently concerning these things, for in the last days will come seducing spirits that shall turn many of My anointed ones away.

    Many shall fall through various lusts and because of sin abounding.

    But if you will seek Me diligently, I will put My Spirit within you.

    When one shall turn to the right hand or to the left you shall not turn with them, but keep your eyes wholly on the Lord. The coming days are most dangerous, difficult and dark, but there shall be a mighty outpouring of My Spirit upon many cities. My people must be diligently warned concerning the days that are ahead. Many shall turn after seducing spirits; many are already seducing My people. It is those who do righteousness that are righteous. Many cover their sins by theological words. But I warn you of seducing spirits who instruct My people in a evil way.

    “Many shall come with seducing spirits and hold out lustful enticements.
    You will find that after I have visited My people again, the way shall become more and more narrow, and fewer shall walk therein. But be not deceived, the ways of righteousness are My ways. For though Satan comes as an angel of light, hearken not to him; for those who perform miracles and speak not righteousness are not of Me. I warn you with great intensity that I am going to judge My house and have a church without spot or wrinkle when I come. I desire to open your eyes and give you spiritual understanding, that you may not be deceived but may walk in uprightness of heart before Me, loving righteousness and hating every evil way. Look unto Me, and I will make you to perceive with eyes of the Spirit the things that lurk in darkness that are not visible to the human eye. Let me lead you in this way that you may perceive the powers of darkness and battle against them. It is not a battle against flesh and blood; for if you battle in that way, you accomplish nothing. But if you let Me take over and battle against the powers of darkness, than they are defeated, and then liberation is brought to My people.

    “I warn you to search the Scriptures diligently concerning these last days. For the things that are written shall indeed be made manifest.

    There shall come deceivers among My people in increasing numbers who shall speak for the truth and shall gain the favor of the people.

    For the people shall examine the Scriptures and say, ‘What these men say is true’. Then when they have gained the hearts of the people, then and only then shall Satan enter into My people. Watch for seducers. Do you think a seducer will brandish a new heresy and flaunt it before the people? He will speak the words of righteousness and truth, and will appear as a minister of light declaring the Word. The people’s hearts shall be won. Then, when the hearts are won, they will bring out their doctrines, and the people shall be deceived. The people shall say, ‘Did he not speak thus and thus? And did we not examine it from the Word?
    Therefore he is a minister of righteousness. This that he has spoken we do not see in the Word, but it must be right, for the other things he spoke were true.’

    “Be not deceived. For the deceiver will first work to gain the hearts of many, and then shall bring forth his insidious doctrines. You cannot discern those that are of Me and those that are not of Me when they start to preach. But seek Me constantly, and then when these doctrines are brought out you shall have a witness in your heart that these are not of Me. Fear not, for I have warned you. Many will be deceived. But if you walk in holiness and uprightness before the Lord, your eyes shall be open and the Lord will protect you. If you will constantly look unto the Lord, you will know when the doctrine changes and will not be brought into it.If your heart is right I will keep you; and if you will constantly look to Me, I will uphold you.

    “The minister of righteousness shall be on this wise: his life shall agree with the Word and his lips shall give forth that which is wholly true, and it will be no mixture. When the mixture appears, then you will know he is not a minister of righteousness. The deceivers speak first the truth then error, to cover their own sins which they love. Therefore, I exhort and command you to study the Scriptures relative to seducing spirits, for this is one of the great dangers of these last days.

    “I desire you to firmly be established in My Word and not in the personalities of men that you will not be moved as so many shall be moved.

    Take heed to yourselves and follow not the seducing spirits that are already manifesting themselves. Diligently inquire of Me when you hear something that you have not seen in My Word, and do not hold people’s persons in admiration–for it is by this very method Satan will destroy many of My people.”

    The above is an excerpt from a prophecy given at the Elim Bible Institute Summer Camp Meeting in 1965 by the late Stanley Frodsham. Brother Frodsham was a recognized prophet and teacher in the Body of Christ whose life and ministry spanned the Pentecostal Revival, the great Healing Revival and the early days of the Charismatic Movement. He also authored the well-known book, “Smith Wigglesworth: Apostle of Faith”.

  3. I agree 100% and trust this prophetic word for it applies to TODAY perhaps even more than in 1965. I believe that is from God based on the simple fact that this word could apply to any generation (as God’s Words are eternal and true).

    Thank you Doug…it is very timely! I pray all will take heed to what the Spirit is speaking through His people!
