This is probably one of the richest, most profound, useful, and timely scripture passages for us to take to heart at this moment in time. I say “richest” because it contains the treasure of our Lord modeling His Matthew 10:16 “clever as serpents, harmless as doves” wisdom just as the Pharisees and Herodians were seeking to entrap him.
Last week I wrote about the unholy authority of the Progressive Spirit that possesses us at every level of our society. The American church and state have fallen into full submission. And as I experienced this week, the American corporate workplace has fallen under its authority as well. Our Prayer & Fast Wednesday invite, in retrospect, was a call to heed the warning and take any and all action necessary to identify and cast out the spirit that will otherwise destroy us…
Dear Brothers & Sisters in Christ,
Then He called His twelve disciples together and gave them power and authority over all demons, and to cure diseases. He sent them to preach the Kingdom of God and to heal the sick. ~ Luke 9:1-2 (My Maxwell read 7/14, “Help Your People Grow”) I do not see us growing. I see us weakened, fearful, and dependent because of the possession I wrote about Sunday.
…and from Chambers, this morning as well: We have to show it in our fingertips, in our tongue, and in our bodily contact with other people, and as we obey God, we find we have a wealth of power on the inside. The question of forming habits on the basis of grace of God is a very vital one. To ignore it is to fall into the snare of the Pharisee.
I see obedience to the Progressive Spirit as it directs us in how we may be permitted to worship God, and our behavior with one another. This is what “we have to show in our fingertips, in our tongue, and in our bodily contact with other people”…as we are served up to the Pharisees, like sheep to the slaughter. Please join us for Prayer & Fast Wednesday tomorrow with prayerful focus on God’s authority as revealed in Luke 9:1-2
I have a good friend who once used a triangle to illustrate the simple beauty of our relationship to one another through our primary focus of obedience to God. When you and I as the bottom two points of the triangle move upward in obedience to God as the top point we, by degree, grow closer to one another. How many marriages fail because we leave God out and move closer to each other on the line of I, me, mine? I know mine did. Sadly now, four years later, I am able to see a second invisible triangle that has slowly and steadily slipped in over the years to take the place of the first, which my friend seems unable to see…or accept. It is the Progressive Spirit, as effective in stealth as it is in cunning…its only purpose is to draw as many souls as it can away from God. As you might expect, it works in the exact opposite way as God’s triangle. In the healthy body, when we move closer to the “keter” crown of God, we not only move closer to each other, we move closer to Truth and Oneness with our Creator. In the possessed body, the closer we move to its point, the farther we move from Truth, our relationship to God, and closer to the eternity of Hell. Think of it as the devil’s anti-Psalm 23…
I am the affectionate one you shall want in the flesh. I will let you lie down wherever you choose. I will provide for you mighty waters to quench your every thirst, and lead you on the path to your every desire for your name’s sake. Even though I am the shadow of death, I will bring you no harm, and protect you from your enemies. I preparest a table for you safe from all your enemies. You anointest my head with the blood of innocents, till my cup overflows. Surely all my powers shall be yours all the days of your life; and you will dwell in my house forever.
On whose authority do we march past the graves of 61,228,584 murdered babies, 20,000,000 of them black babies, to protest the murder of one black criminal? “The weapon of mass destruction is the suction machine in Planned Parenthood. If we look the other way while our smallest brothers and sisters are being lynched in the womb, we lose the right to be outraged that we were once lynched by the Klan.” ~ Reverend Johnny Hunter, a black pastor.

Question: How is it that my other good friend who lives almost totally off the grid, without smart phone or access to a computer is smart enough to find the statistical data on Covid 19 and proof that we are all being lied to by those subject to the Father of Lies, and possessed by the same spirit I’ve just described?
Answer: Those possessed are unable, and/or unwilling to see and accept truth. Even when its put directly in front of them: Covid911-INSURGENCY
“For we are opposed around the world by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy that relies primarily on covert means for expanding its sphere of influence.” ~ President John F. Kennedy, April 27, 1961 at the Waldorf-Astoria, New York City. “The President and the Press” speech before the American Newspaper Publishers Assoc., in what I believe were the words that got him killed. LISTEN From 9:55 to the 11 min. mark.
Its one thing to be clever as serpents, and harmless as doves…on His authority. Its quite another to hide from truth, safe as it may seem. But ask yourself, on whose authority? On whose authority do I restrict my speech in any place? On whose authority do I wear this mask? On whose authority do I distance myself from my friends and neighbors? On whose authority do I close my business and the ability to provide for my family? On whose authority?
