Fake News, isn’t a new thing!

Genesis 3 – Adam and Eve hid themselves from God because they realized they were naked.  God comes looking for them and says in verse 11 “who told you, you were naked”.

Just as the enemy gave Adam and Eve fake news to make them doubt, be discouraged, he is still filling people with fake news.   You are not good enough!  You don’t know anything!  Who do you think you are?

What are the words that keep filling your mind and keep you from becoming all that God has planned for you?

Our mistakes, don’t challenge God, belittle Him, or make Him less than.  He is secure in Himself and we will never weaken Him.

Jesus is good news!  Because of Him, God’s nature can become ours.  He know everything about us and still loves us.  We are the apple of His eye.  He is our Good Father, faithful provider, redeemer, restorer, peace, rest, joy, contentment, satisfaction, comforter, ……… everything!

Ephesians 1:7 In Christ we have redemption of our sins through His blood.  Verse 9  He makes knows to us the mystery of His will, according to His good pleasure which He purposed in Himself…..

God created people, YOU, to be loved.   Don’t get hung up on fake news.  Listen for His voice today.  He is speaking.  To YOU!

2 Chronicles 16:9    For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him.   (NKJV)

He found loyal hearts in 2 Chronicles 30 – The King called for the people to celebrate a passover.  Some made fun of the news.  Didn’t have time for God.  But there were those who came and tore down all of the places of worship that were not to the Lord.   They didn’t come doing everything correct according to the law, but their heart was in the right place. The King prayed and asked the Lord to forgive everyone who prepares their heart to seek God and the Lord listened to him and healed the people.

Isaiah 29:13  The Lord saw the peoples hearts.  They said they were worshiping Him with their lips but the hearts and minds wer far from the Lord!

In chapter 30:10-11 the people say, “we don’t want to hear about the Lord any more!”

God in His graciousness, after they want nothing to do with Him says, in verse 15 –  “In returning (to Me) and resting (in Me) you shall be saved; in quietness and in (trusting) confidence shall be your strength.”  (AMP)

Verse 18 (so good)  ….the Lord (easnestly) waits (expecting, looking, and longing) to be gracious to you; and therefor He lifts Himself up, that He may have mercy on you and show loving-kindness to you.  For the Lord is a God of justice.  Blessed (happy, fortunate, to be envied) are all those who (earnestyly) wait for Him, who expect and look and long for Him (for His vicotory, His favor, His love, His peace, His joy, and His matchless, unbroken companionship)!   (AMP)

God is so GOOD!

He even says in verse 20, “your teacher will not be hid from you any more,…you will hear your teacher.  Verse 21 “your ears will hear a word behind you, saying.  This is the way, walk in it, when you trurn to the right hand and when you turn to the left”    Even during our troubled times!  Yes! Yes! Yes!   (Our teacher is the Holy Spirit)

God is looking at our heart!  Where is it, who, what is, important to us.  When He sees it is Him, He is there for us!

He was there for Hezekiah and the people of Jerusalem when they were attacked (2 Chron. 32),  In that same chapter God heals Hezekiah!   Their hearts were toward the Lord and because of that they heard the Lord directing their lives.

He was there for Naaman.  A leper in 2 Kings 5, from another country, comes to see Elisha, the prophet.  Elisha says, go dip in the Jordan river 7 times.  He does it and is completely healed of the leporsy.   He now knows there is only one God in all the earth.  Elisha’s God.  He asks Elisha to to ask the Lord to pardon him when he goes into the Kings temple (who he is working for) and bows down to forgive him.  Elisha say – go in peace.  In other words God will.

God is looking at our hearts!  Who, what, where is our heart connected.  When it is to the Lord, He looks past our weakness, mistakes……He is looking at our heart.  He knows we are just dust.  But when He breathes in us we come alive.

Death is final!   Love if full of possiblilites!

Jesus death brough finality to our death and His love is giving us endless possiblities!

Dave Garrett shared his experience in Costa Rica.  God is good in Costa Rica as well as in Hanover, PA.

Jesus told the rich young ruler in Mark 10:18 …”No one is good but One, that is, God.”

When the King has your heart and you know He is good! It helps us to rise above adversities in life.

Acts 10:38 …God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him.

When we know Jesus, and have been empowered by the Holy Spirit, and who it is who has our heart, we will be doing just as Jesus did, doing good and healing all who are oppressed.  For God is with us!

What a morning!   Our children were home from kid’s camp.  They learned about God, but also how to handle themselves in relationships where they didn’t felt accepted.   God directed their thoughts and their words.  This is how we know God is working in our lives when we respond to negativity with God’s love.

Pastor Kevin shared:   The enemy feeds off of every negative thought so he can manifest!   He suggested we starve the sucker!   Fast from negativity!  (6 months!  Forever!)

Jeremiah 33 was our insight for the day.

Jeremiah is in prison and the city was being attacked when God said to him…..Jeremiah call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.  (Oh how God wants to talk with us)

God showed Jeremiah that his love was still for them and how God would restore them.   Verse 19-26   People were saying, God is throwing away His chosen people.  BUT – God said, “If you can break My covenant with the day and My covenant with the night so that there will not be day and night in their season then My covenant may also be broken with David My servant,……”

God is drawing His people up!  Whatever life looks like, our thoughts need to be on Him.  Not on the negativity that we feed on.  God still has a plan, a purpose.

It takes work to climb a mountain.  Let’s prepare our assent by fasting negativity!  God will never break His covenant with us.  Our covenant was established with the blood of His Son, Jesus (our Savior), and it will never be abolished or broken!

This is a great reason to starve the negativity in our lives!  We want to look like Him!

Mark 8:22-25  Jesus heals a blind man.   When Jesus prayed for him the first time, the man saw men walking as trees.  JESUS HAD TO PRAY A SECOND TIME!   This time the mans understanding and perception was renewed so he could see men clearly.

We all need to have our understanding updated at times.  Our perception is distorted.

John 6 –  Jesus fed 5,000 people.  They follow Jesus to the other side of the sea.  Jesus says you are not following me for the signs but because they wanted Him to feed them.  Like Moses fed the people in the wilderness.  Jesus says He is the true bread which came from heaven and if they eat His flesh and drink His blood they will live.  They couldn’t handle what He said and many left because of an they were offended.  Jesus asks the disciples – will you go away too?  Peter’s response is, “Where can we go?  You have the words of eternal life.  And we have come to believe and know that you are the Christ the Son of the living God.”

We must come to that conclusion also.  There is no where else to go.  Jesus is our life.  Perception change –  Man doesn’t live by bread alone but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.”  (Matt. 4:4)

Book of Acts there were many perception changes taking place.  They were filled with the Holy Spirit and the scriptures they knew were now becoming real.  Their hearts changed, so much that they were willing to share whatever they had with each other.  The church grew because they saw something in the people they hadn’t seen before.  People were repenting and getting baptized.  Their purpose was to follow Jesus, this man who was crucified and risen from the dead and was doing amazing signs, wonders, healings.

With all of the funds that were brought, Peter and John didn’t start a home for the lame man in Chapter 3.  Instead they said we don’t have silver or gold but what we do have we will give you –  In the name of Jesus Christ, rise up and walk.  The man did.  It caused such a stir that Peter and John were put in prison and commanded not to talk about this Jesus again.   They prayed for more boldness instead of becoming quiet.

Acts 5, people are selling land and bringing the money.  Ananias and his wife Sapphira sell some land.  But instead of just giving some of the money they decided to say they were giving all the money!  They both fell down dead!  OH MY!  Why?  What is the perception change?  In Genesis we all have suffered the consequence of Adam and Eve eating of the tree they were told not to.  In Joshua all of the people were punished when Achan took something from the battle at Jericho.  But now…….Only Ananias and Sapphira suffered their punishment for lying to the Holy Spirit.  It was about their heart, they lied the rest of the people grew in their faith.

The people’s perception changed and they wanted to  join together in unity with those who were believing what they were learning. (Acts 2:42-46)  Learning, eating together, sharing communion with each other, they had gladness and simplicity in their heart.

Jesus what am I not seeing clearly?  May I have a perception change. Help me to see more clearly as you did the blind man.  May my understanding be clarified. May my perception change toward your people.  May I understand I can pray and see people healed.  May I have boldness to speak of Christ.  May I have a perception change about stuff and things and have a giving heart.   May I be filled with your Holy Spirit.

A perception change from the Holy Spirit is uplifting.  An offense from the enemy is depressing!  Go with the upgrade of perception change –  Fill us Holy Spirit!
