    Spiritual Warfare

    Praying Always With All Prayer


    Prayer and warfare have always been close companions. So it’s no surprise that the last dimension of spiritual armor is prayer. Learn more in this message from Ephesians 6.

    ***************

    You must watch this and listen *very carefully*. You won't regret it, trust me on this.

    PLEASE NOTE
    the longer you watch *AND* listen, the more serious and more CONVICTING the message becomes throughout the video message.

    Note: this is not to frighten you nor doubt your Salvation. Its merely a wake up call. Let the Holy Spirit convict you as you go in prayer in Jesus' name.

    ***************

    Matthew 7:12-16
    The Golden Rule

    Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets. Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:

    Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?


    Matthew 7:22-26
    Many will say to Me on that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name and driven out demons in Your name and done many mighty works in Your name?

    And then I will say to them openly (publicly), I never knew you; depart from Me, you who act wickedly [disregarding My commands]. So everyone who hears these words of Mine and acts upon them [obeying them] will be like a sensible (prudent, practical, wise) man who built his house upon the rock.

    And the rain fell and the floods came and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock. And everyone who hears these words of Mine and does not do them will be like a stupid (foolish) man who built his house upon the sand.

    issue with the clip

    hi chad. i appreciate your initiative to get people to watch the clip, however, with all do respect, you come across like we are going to hell for not watching it. that is a huge problem when it comes to spreading the Word to people who are interested in the Gospel. although we are Christians and firm believers in Christ, we do not reserve the right to say if you don't do this or that then something bad will happen to you. that is wrong and it severely distorts the Christian image.

    Speak for yourself. The Scripture speaks for itself too. What is the "Christian image" to you? I'm not here for a Christian image. I'm here to reach the lost at any cost, so don't tell me you appreciate something and then write it off with your personal opinion. This is not about Christian image. Its about the Word of GOD and what it says AS IS.

    You obviously did not listen to the entire message at all, no way had you done that since I sent out the message less than 30 minutes ago of your post and the video message is almost one hour long. That's wrong on your part. You do not know the entire message this young preacher gave.

    You made some foolish comments here that make no sense and completely false. Think before you go posting about what I said. Your off par here with your comments. I never ever said you will go to hell or something bad will happen to someone if you do not watch the video. Get your facts straight before you speak.

    I haven't watched the clip yet, but I took your e-mail the same way as cnkale80. Your comments above come across pretty harsh also.

    But if you come across as agressive as you did with your reply....you will turn non-believers away more often than not. Bible thumping (not saying you do this) or in your face type of witnessing mostly reinforces the beliefs of non-believer's that Christians are "fanatics". Before I was saved, getting in my face about God did nothing more than turn me off and make me less open minded to the possiblilty there was/is a God. To be honest...I still don't like Bible thumpers as they don't seem open to discussion. You grab more peoples' attention and convert more people with a less aggressive approach.

    Actually, you will get a non-believer curious about God if you do something for them that they consider out of the ordinary...like going out of your way to help someone that doesn't expect it, than getting in someone's face and preaching to them. Eventually, they will wonder why you are doing whatever act and then you explain that you are doing God's work and how you were saved.

    Just my opinion, but I've found it to be a much better approach than what I call "aggressive witnessing".

    I have broken into some crowds that I would have no chance at with just preaching to them. I have a cross with the words "With God all things are possible" tattoo'd on my right arm. You will be amazed how many people come up to me and ask about it. Something as simple as a tattoo opened the door to me witnessing to a group of bikers. Since I have a tattoo (only the one) and a beard, I was one of them in a way....not some straight laced Christian geek that wanted to convert them. Funny how God works......

    I will check out the clip tomorrow when I have an hour to spare and I'm not bashing you....just giving my opinion.

    In Him,
    Randy

    I don't believe in bible thumping either as a method, but I do believe in the absolute truth. This is not aggressive preaching, this is honest preaching for what the Word says. As for tattoos, I wont' start another giant topic on this. Use the search function in the Scriptural Answers forum for that.

    You both did not listen to the message yet and you already aired your opinions. That's not so honest now is it? Had you even heard the entire message you would not have declared it bible thumping or anything else I was already accused of by you both. But I'm not surprised nor discouraged. GOD is working here to reach His children who listen. This message is not from me. Its GOD's message to His children. Save the opinions for someone else. GOD is speaking so do not try to get in His way.

    There are people who think they are saved when in fact they are living a horrible carnal lifestyle and are not truly saved. Read the Scriptures and you'll know what I am referring to. I'm not holding back on preaching this truth. That would be deadly to many lost and horrific on my part. This wake-up call is another awesome chance to reach those who are wrongly deceived by false preachers.

    Again, had you both even listened to the entire message you would comprehend what I'm talking about. But you ignorantly aired your opinion instead before listening. And you both did this on your very first post in this site. Go figure.

    I would like to thank you for the video.
    I have often struggled with profesing Christians That do not have the convictions that I have or seem to know the word but there lives do not reflect it.
    I sometimes feel that I an judging them.
    I dont hear alot of preaching with such conviction and I have sent the video to some of my frinds to watch.
    I need conviction and I thank God for it.
    THX
    PS was not going to watch the hole thing but I just couldnt stop it.lol
    good stuff

    Two Natures

    Being born again is spiritual, and is not of this world. Unlike the first birth, that is to say; the birth, born to this earth, or of the Adamic nature (flesh), the second birth, or being born again (Spirit) is born of God and has nothing to do with the first birth or the birth born to earth.

    In John 3:6 Jesus tells us: That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. These two, flesh and spirit cannot be mixed. When a person has received Jesus as Lord, and Savior, he or she is born again or a second time. Not as the world knows of birth, but as God knows. Not in man's sight, but in God's sight.

    Although the Believer has been born a second time or in the sight of God, he or she still possess the first, Adamic nature on earth (Rom. 7:23). These two, flesh and Spirit cannot be mixed. Herein lies the error of far too many people. Too often, people, especially church people struggle to try to blend Spirit to clean flesh.

    In Mark 2:21-22 Jesus offers examples of what mixing the new with the old would be. He said it would be like sewing a piece of new cloth on an old grment, etc.

    Far, too many people, often church people error in their attempt and zeal (Rom. 10:2) to prove to themselves and to the world they are changed on an earthly level.

    It could prove wise to always remember: a million years from now, flesh will be flesh, and Spirit will be Spirit.

    Too many people struggle to straighten up their earthly flesh. Romans 8:5 says: They that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit, the things of the Spirit. And "They that are after the flesh cannot please God (Rom 8:8).

    For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit, reap life everlasting (Gal. 6:7).

    Good on ya Chad, I watched it and found it challanging and refreshing in that he's not compromising God's word to be popular. Very good and am passing it along to mates. Thanks for posting it, and don't compromise what you know is right

    Thank you Real1y and onewrite for your humble, kind responses. Amen to both your posts. Real1ty, I felt the same way. I did not think I would sit here for one hour to listen to the entire message, but I just could not turn it off. Now that is truly the power of the Holy Spirit.

    Edit: thank you also Goose for your reply. GOD bless you all

    Response To Video

    Hi Chad,
    I just want to thank you for giving me the link to watch this video...it was just awesome!!! I don't think this video is offensive at all, not to me anyway...I just know that by me watching this video, I am convicted to want to live a life as holy as humanly possible. The bible says be ye holy for He is holy...that is my hearts desire...I want Jesus to know me, not just me to know Jesus, and I want to live my life the way that Jesus wants me to live my life...this video stepped all over my toes, and I thank God that He loves me just the way I am, but that He loves me too much to leave me that way...

    I know this may seem simple and stupid...but I love the Lord, and after watching this video, I want to live a holier life for the Lord, and I want to be a spotless bride for the bridegroom...

    Again, thank you Chad for obeying God and sending this video to all of us...if you had not done this, I may have been one to cry Lord, Lord, thinking that I am saved, and all the while just decieving myself...thank you so much for sending this video out to those of us who will recieve it...God bless you Chad!!!

    In Christ,
    Tonya

    I just logged in shortly, and saw in TJ shoutbox heading the urgent request to watch the mentioned video, without any offense on that call I clicked since I'm spiritually eager and though not heard it yet till now because still on the process (my lappy is getting slow...) Then, I came across here, but prior to this was my first check on "new posts" and the thread on "why I think Jesus did not write the bible" opened by brother Lost caught my attention...

    It seems I'd found 3 new members today complaining about Chad's way of presenting biblical facts or important information.

    I just turned a month here in TJ and so far all is okay is with me since that's what the Holy Spirit is telling me. I learned a lot here through silent reading and joining to some threads as well. Really, makes me grow spiritually. I have known various personalities through the way they write and respect them and have discerned how God is wise in dealing all of us in one purpose to glorify His name through this Christ-centered website despite our races, colors and creeds.

    Personally, I have no offense on how brother Chad talks / communicates with us here. I even compare him to Paul in new testament : bold, direct and truly a leader. I am convinced of his way to rebuke us here. Each time I read some posts with directness, as long as it is biblical I submit as I cling on th verse : "Open rebuke is better than secret love"

    Oh well, still waiting for the video to work here iin my lappy now...

    Praise the Lord!:thumbs_up

    I like it... at first I didn't because I felt he was condemning others for being sinful but excepting himself, but in the end I think he delivered a hard message in a loving way.

    Glad all you who actually listened to the message received it well.

    For those with slow computers and / or internet connection, you can listen to the audio only version (will work faster for you).

    Dear Chad , awsome message, right on the mark!

    This is the hour we need this message, Praise God I fear for those who ignore or reject this message, I pray the Lord conficts and brings to repentance all those who are tempted to ignore this.

    The Sermon on the mount points out that we will be judged and how,
    so we ought to be using all our time getting ready for that, Luke 12:37,Blessed are those servants, whom the Lord when he cometh shall find watching: verily I say unto you, that he shall gird himself, and make them to sit down to meat, and with come forth and serve them.
    38 And if he shall come in the second watch, or come in the third watch, and find them so, blessed are those servats.
    39 And this know, that if the goodman of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched, and not have suffered his house to be broken through.

    40 Be ye therfore ready also: for the Son of man cometh at an hour when ye think not.
    41, 42,43,44, 45, 46,
    thank you again

    Thank you and glad to see you all on fire. This is great and a good example of the kind of revival we need within our hearts, not just the Body of Christ itself. The real conviction and transformation is within ourselves individually, by GOD's Spirit and grace in Jesus.

    Original post updated with some Scripture that was originally included in the email all the members received today. Also added the audio only version for those with slower connections.

    Do the will of God...

    This is truly amazing...I have told many that their are two groups of people that God sees...The...I will crowd...and the...Thy will crowd. Doing the will of God is simple...STOP SINNING. Churches need to revive the law of God...for it simply tells us what sin is...people who use the term ...legalism to put fear in others from even talking about Gods ten commandments do so at their own parrel. This preacher...tells the truth...I have thought this my whole christian life...liberalism(a state of mind found in most)...says we are not under the law...does not agree with Jesus who said something else...Jn 14:15. And to expand my point remember this...satan is liberal...Jesus is not. Choose whom you will serve...for you can only serve one master. May God have mercy on us all. With love and compassion, your friend in Christ...Brian

    Response to Audio Version

    Hallelujah! what a rebuke with deep compassion. I am reminded how beautiful avatar I have chosen to represent the longing of my heart which is to be a good tree that bears good fruits ( Matt. 7:17) that I would be known as Christ's follower as I don't want to be cut down and be thrown to the lake of fire (Matt.7:19), but be a channel of blessing, of salvation and God's love as my manifestation to my obedience and love to Him.

    Oh thank you brother Chad, truly the Holy Spirit never fails to keep us busy in submitting our souls to God. I pray that He would keep convicting
    each one of us from glory to glory, that He would keep anointing our tongues as we say "Lord, Lord..", that He would continue to keep us from false teachers...

    Surely, more souls and churches will be lifted up, edified again through this important information you've shared.

    To God be the glory!

    Very very impressed Chad!

    It's actually really interesting, I have heard this message over a year ago! It changed my life, and the way I view my walk with God...it was the most challenging message I have heard in a long long time...if ever!

    Since then I have been seeking out Paul Washer messages, which can be found online very easily as he is gaining quite a following.

    The Spirit moved greatly through this message and continues to move...Praise the Lord that there are still faithful preachers out there, though they are getting few and far between

    God Bless

    Bill
