Numbers 22:28, Then the Lord opened the mouth of the donkey, and it said to Balaam, “What have I done to you, that you have struck me three times?”  When America’s Beloved Gospel Singer, George Beveraly Shea, was invited to speak at an event, he asked his dad for advice. His father replied, “Son, God helped Balaam’s donkey to talk, I’m sure He can do the same for you.” When we are given the opportunity to talk, ask God for help; His Holy Spirit will give us His words.

In 2005 my wife Mary Ann was diagnosed with cancer. I posted signs in our home that read: Too Blessed to be Stressed. Following surgery, she underwent months of radiation treatments. Today she is cancer free! We were shocked to learn that her surgeon lost her life to cancer. In the same way a surgeon removes cancer cells, Doctor Jesus, the Great Physician, performs spiritual surgery to remove a deadly disease, sin. Hebrews 9:6, He came to put away sin by the sacrifice of Himself. 

Feminism As A Weapon

Opinion

The screaming attacks by brainwashed ninny’s on US Senators over the Kavanaugh
confirmation vote, no matter how the media tries to frame it, it still remains that ignorant young
women of college age, many quite probably Georgetown students or grads, infected with the
disease of Marxist feminism, have been rallied to the Anti-Fa cause to destroy, on the
Democrats behalf, a singular individual whose personal testimony by practice and example,
stands as a threat to their advancement of Socialism. America must be feminized!

Their argument is: ‘What counts is only what women say and women, therefore, must be
believed.’ Men are grouped collectively as sexist, immoral pigs with no legitimate reason to exist
except to obey and procreate on demand. “Otherwise they can just shut up and go away.” I
wonder how many real mothers will subscribe to that notion? How many moral, happy families
will be adversely affected by this philosophy when their own children go to college.

Like the anti-fascists, these organized squadrons of feminist Amazons, financially supported by
the George Soros organization, Hillary Clinton’s backers and other anti-Trump PAC’s, can be
thrown into the breach of any social conflict when numbers and loud voices are needed to kill an
unpopular proposal, mangle an idea, intimidate politicians and bully conservatives.

Several years ago, Rush Limbaugh revealed his list of life’s undeniable truths. I forget how
many there were but one I recall was “feminism was invented so ugly women could have sex.” It
also required beer. But, alas, lo these many years later they apparently still haven’t got the sex
they wanted so now, by God, nobody can have any, or beer either for that matter because it
harms women.

In a change of tactics, the Democrat derangement syndrome has refocused on women the
Democrats are fast losing to conservatism, including American women of African descent. They
are desperate to recapture the issue of women as victims while at the same time, using the
power of the scream to destroy Trump’s second conservative Supreme Court nominee from
he rightful elevation to that high bench. He is too dangerous to them on several levels.

In light of the scurrilous charges made against judge Kavanaugh as an individual alleging that,
when he was a teen age boy thirty-six years ago he attempted to fondle a teenage female, by
today’s standards is a complete violation of the feminists rules against fraternization between the
sexes for any reason. In consequence, these hoards of failed female sexless vampires have
descended on Congress to bully and inflame passions against only one person, judge
Kavanaugh, like it was he and he alone who was responsible for them not getting laid.

So, according to the new feminist mantra, if one is a teenage white male who matriculated
through the American school system(s) without being sufficiently indoctrinated, then he is
automatically disqualified from high office. If he drinks beer he’s disqualified from any office.

The shameful thing is that many of these “feminists” who graduated from their schools of
Marxist indoctrination are now professors in those colleges and universities promulgating the
very anti-man hatred that may soon be visited on them. An unleash feminist mob, without a
mans steady guiding hand, will naturally turn to screaming idle threats, wearing silly pink hats
glorifying the vagina’s they don’t use, and wearing their voices hoarse screaming at men who
will pay them no attention. Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go
get ‘em! (06Oct18)

The Weekly Word Devotional

By: Stephen A. Brown, Marketplace Ministries, inc.

The Weekly Word is now 5-Years Old. To God be the Glory!  Exodus 20:3, “You shall have no other gods before Me.”  In Timothy Keller’s book, COUNTERFEIT GODS, he warns of the emptiness of money and power. Keller explains how these can become false gods, plunging people into a pit. P.166, “The secret to change is to identify and dismantle the counterfeit gods of your heart.” P.168, “One way to discern your heart’s true love is to look at how you spend your money.” Jesus said, “Where your treasure is, there is your heart also” Matthew 6:21.

“The Visit” By Bob Allen

Religion

Visit With Evil.

This is urgent, must rear.

This, my friend, is a word from the Lord for the followers of Christ Jesus. The message is not about my experience, but to encourage you to put on the whole armor of God and get yourself into the fight.

In 1987 I had cancer in my throat, while being prayed for the minister said, “You have been shot, I see shrapnel in your jaw I had been shot in my throat and jaw at age 17 as a young Marine.  The minister said, “There was a death sentence attached to that bullet by Satan it had now been broken. The devil wanted to destroy my throat because of the calling on my life.  No one but the Lord could have revealed the knowledge of the shrapnel in my jaw to that little housewife that spoke this word over me; it can only be revealed by an x-ray, the cancer was also from the devil.

                 Let me now show you what this ugly thing is like.

Another person and I from the church were having a disagreement, and I said let’s pray about it. We went downstairsto my game room, and we got on our knees facing each other around an eighteen-inch round footstool and began topray.  I just began to praise the Lord, and all at once the person said, “Stop! He doesn’t want you to praise Him.”  So I stopped. I had no reason to question this person. I had just gotten saved, and I knew little to nothing, but I was hearing from God, I guess I thought everyone could. All of a sudden, the person’s eyes were changed to a bright yellow with a red center stripe running perpendicular; very terrible and scary.  Their thumb was cocked back like a pistol, and their finger  was thrust into my side applying pressure to my side. It was sore for a few days.   Suddenlytheir language was changed to a cold, hard, evil, scary tongue.  The sound was as fast and loud as a German machine gun.  I had never heard teaching on casting out devils, and I was too scared to run. I remember looking at the stairs and wondering if I could make it without being overpowered.  I waved my hand before their eyes and could see that the person was hypnotized. Their eyes were like glass.  The person never moved their finger or released the pressure from my side, or stopped speaking in the harsh, evil tongue. I had never heard this tongue. Before or since itwas like perfect evil. It was very fearful and scary. The devil kept this evil tongue up using this person like they were a piece of trash until they fell out from exhaustion. I thought they might be dead.  All I knew to do was put my hands over their head and praise the Lord. After a time the person set up and was normal; just as if nothing had happened.  I said, “What did he say?” The demon spoke through the person and said, “He just said, you stand accused.” I said what’s going on here?  They asked what I meant. I said do you know what just went on here and they said no. They never knew or believed they had such an experience and were taken over by the devil, and yet it happened. The person left the room perfectly normal with the demons still in them. Once in you, until he is dealt with, he can come and go at will, and he can appear to be a good manager of your life.

One of the things the devil wanted to convince me of was that tongues were his. The pastor had already told me that tongues belong to the devil. This person was in the First Baptist Church on Sunday with a choir robe on and teaching Sunday school. There was no sign of demons, but the demons were still there. This is not that unusual. Satan was at the table with the disciples at the last supper “Then entered Satan into Judas surnamed Iscariot being of the twelve.” (Lu22:3) “And when the hour was come He (Jesus) sat down, and the twelve apostles with Him.”(Verse: 11)  Jesus said, “But, behold, the hand of him that betrays me is with me on the table.”(Verse: 21)

 I had two more visits about this same time when the devil made a statement about tongues. The Lord wanted me to have this experience to learn about the evil devil’s ways, so I could help others. Most of us will not see a face taken over and changed like I did that day.  I still find it a mystery the way he was exposed to me. One day during a visit from him while trying to pass himself off as the Lord I caught him in a lie and told him so. I think it is a mystery why he let me catch him lying, and why he exposed his hand to me. It only made me a greater lover of God. The evil, wicked power can be used by him if he can get you over into sin. It is his to use if he can get to you through deception.  The devil totally possessed this person, but don’t worry; he can’t touch you, just like he couldn’t touch me. There must be something for him to travel on to get into you. It is what I call a sin road. If you are in sin or deception, he has directaccess to you.  If you will hide the Word in your heart and won’t sin against God, the Word in you will be a stop sign for the devil. If you can handle this next statement ok, but if not, so be it: I have heard many, many preachers say a Christian can’t have a demon, but I must say they have all been  wrong.This person was a Christian caught up in lustand lies to cover the sin. Remember  the devil cannot touch a born again spirit, but if your soul and body step into sin, you leave yourself wide open , and If you play in his sandbox, you are going to have company from sin’s rightful owner.

  This person was delivered from demons about forty-five days later.  They called the pastor and said, “I am deathly sick. Come quickly.” I stopped in just to check on the person at the same time the pastor showed up; he said, “Do you want me to call an ambulance and get you to the hospital?” They said,” don’t you know what this is? This is demons coming out of me.” Neither of us had ever been around anything like this before. The pastor was very scared. He never believed in demons being active today, and he had not believed me when I tried to tell him about my prior experience with the person. Now, this happened about forty-five years ago at that time you would have a hard time finding a TV preacher as well as very few Christian books on this subject.

This was a solemn work of the Lord. I don’t know how this person knew that they were full of demons or that the Lord was going to deliver them at that time. If this person had not been a child of God, the Lord would not have delivered them like this. It was His solemn work. It was a beautiful thing to see the Lord rescue one of His own. He never wants the devil’s wicked ways to touch us. The Pastor and I did nothing; we didn’t know how. The word, come out, was not spoken by us one time. This goes against every deliverance I have ever witnessed or heard of or been involved in. I saw this evil; wicked devil operating, even in one that is in the church. Satan has great power to use, but only against those not under the Father’s protection at all times through the Lord Jesus.

The Lord wants me to share with you what I saw in the evil, wicked, hideous one who hates you. If you belong to Christ Jesus, Satan is most likely the author of everything that’s going wrong in your life.

 Father God loves you with perfect love, and through the overcoming power of our Lord Jesus, we can put the devil under our feet. If you know anyone who needs help in this area, please push this teaching forward this is the work of God and not man. This work needs to touch the whole body of Christ; Please ask the one you forward it to also to pass it on.If you know someone that is maybe struggling or needs deliverance, I can and will help, and I can get you to the right Church. Boballenministries@gmail.com

The last teaching on this subject is coming up: a trip to meet Jesus to learn more about sin.

The Devil Manifest

Religion

The Great Deceiver

 I want to share with you a visit I had from the devil. Please listen. I hate talking about sin and the devil, but this is what the Lord has given me to do at this time. The devil needs to be expose our families are being attacked. I will tell you how important this is  and I want you to pray about it. You can ask the Lord to judge me. Ask him if what  Bob Allen said is true. He knows who I am, and I have total faith and confidence in what I am saying.  I give you permission to judge me for yourself. I was put in the presence of the devil to see how evil and wicked he is, so I could share it with you. I had been saved a very short time and one day while driving my car; I ask the Lord if tongues are real and if they are for today. The power of God fell on me in the car, and I began to speak in tongues! I had the true “ book of Acts” experience. I had to get my car off the road and just lay in the seat while the Spirit was upon me. I spoke what seemed to be many, many languages for maybe over an hour I could not stop until the Lord was through. At that time I received the gift for giving message and interpretation in tongues for the Church.  I lay down in the seat until the Lord was finished with me. My mouth was filled with the Spirit. I was completely consumed in the Spirit world. It would be too much to try to share all I experienced that day.

Shortly after that, I had three personal visits from the evil one. I am only going to share  one with you. It seems to me; his greater purpose was to stop or discredit my new language of tongues. I still don’t quite know how to value our Holy Spirit languages, but the devil evidently does. I know that the most important thing to him was to stop these tongues now at any cost. I was in the First Baptist Church in a small town on eastern shore Maryland and tongues had never been introduced there, in that Church. You would think the way the devil came after me that I was the most important person in the world. It was as if I had my hands on the pearl of great price which Jesus spoke of and satan thought it was his. I knew little to nothing. I was just starting to read the Bible for the first time. You would find it hard to believe, but I was in a constant battle with satan for at least a year. Try to hear this. If you are a child of God, you most likely have never had troubles that he was not the author of. His footprints would be on all family problems. In that first year, he knew every place I would go, and everything I would do. I went to a motel to fast and pray for three days just to seek the Lord and to pray for my marriage. He was there. He spoke to me and answered my very first prayer, disguising himself as the Lord Jesus. He is a never ceasing evil force against you. One of the things he said was, “you don’t need to pray in tongues just talk to me, and I will answer you.”

 Be a real Marine for the Lord and fight! You can beat him every time with the Spirit of God that’s in you. Please wake up! When it comes to sin, if you are not in spiritual warfare you’re not in war. You are in defense or defeat. Don’t forget ,David didn’t make David famous; Goliath did, so fight.

 While I was on my knees in the midst of prayer, the devil showed up. The first thing I heard  from him was “God doesn’t want you to praise Him.” What a lie. The devil hates it when we praise the Lord. Praise the Lord more often and with your whole heart. I am going to take you into my visitation from the devil then my last teaching on sin will be my trip to heaven to learn more about sin.

The Great Victory

Religion

 When Jesus was baptized by John the Baptist, the Spirit of God came upon Him, and all the Spirit and power of God  in heaven and earth would soon be given to Him; that is as soon as He beats satan. “For what the law could not do,in that, it was weak through the flesh, God sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh [like us] and for sin, [because of sin] condemned sin in the flesh,” (Rom8:3) Sin started in the flesh. It must be overcome by the flesh.” But when the fulness of the time came, God sent forth His Son, made of a woman, made under the law.” (Gal 4:4 )To know Jesus, as we should ,we must understand we were not made like Him, but He was made like us.  When Jesus went into this battle, he was a man. Isaiah said,”   For unto us a child is born, unto us, a son is given.” (Isaiah9:6) The child is Mary’s son. The son of man, every time you see the son of man, He is the man, Christ Jesus. The son given is the son of God from heaven.[perfect man ,perfect God]  Jesus was led into the wilderness by the Holy Spirit to be tried and tested by the devil for forty days and nights.  (Luke4:2) It was as though He was thrown in the ring with Satan and with the wild beasts! This is a very tense time. I believe this is the greatest battle in the history of the world.  Jesus, the man in the flesh, against the devil for forty days and nights! Jesus is the first sinless man standing on the earth since the fall of Adam. He has the new sinless bloodline from the Father which Adam had in the beginning before sin. Jesus is the only man in the history of the world not fathered by the sinful bloodline. He has stood the test. Jesus never sinned. He has a perfect, sinless body, and perfect, sinless blood. He bypassed the sinful bloodline. The devil beat Adam in what seems to be just one try.  Jesus is called the second Adam. We can read this story in Matthew chapter four in about five minutes, but let’s slow down and try to see it as the Lord Jesus lived it. Jesus is fasting forty days and nights while in the wilderness alone and with the wild beasts. The Word says afterward He was hungry. At His weakest point, the tempter tempted Him with bread. What I am trying to do here is show you the battle that Jesus went through for your soul. Our everlasting, eternal life is free for us, but it was by no means free to Jesus! It was fought for and won. What can we say but thank you, Father? Thank you, Jesus!

 Father God is now starting over. It has been about 5,000 years since God had a man on the earth to confront the devil. Since the fall of Adam, until now, there has not been a man who was not of the sinful bloodline of Adam and sin can never take away sin.There has not been one recorded fight between the devil and man from Adam to Jesus.  Job never entered the fight. Satan dealt with Job by permission from God. Job never put up a fight because he thought it was God dealing with him. Jesus came out of the wilderness after forty days of temptation by the devil. The devil promised Him the world, but Jesus rebuked him as a man with The Sword of the Spirit which is the written word of God. It is written in Matthew and Luke; when it was all over angels came and ministered to Him. Everything changed that day. God now has a champion, Jesus. Jesus said, “All power in heaven and earth has now been given unto me.” (Matt28:18) Jesus now has the keys to heaven and hell. All the Spirit and power of God  upon the earth is now His. Satan has been judged and defeated.

 What do you think your chances are of beating the devil if you fail to join yourself to the faithful, overcoming one, Christ the Lord Jesus?  How tough it must be for the poor sinner out there being steamrolled by demons and blinded about it all.  Get going, be a witness. Help somebody. Paul said, “The god of this world has blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.” (2Cor 4:4) Help somebody get their eyes open.

( Jesus)” Who being the brightness of His glory, and the express image of His person, and upholding all things by the word of His power, when He had (by himself purged our sins) sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high (Heb1:3) He has blottedout the handwriting of ordinances that was against us. (Col 2:14.) How about you? Are you blotted clean?

The wages of sin is death. (Rom6:23) For he hath made Him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; [killed in our place] that we might be made the righteousness of God, in Him. (2Cor 5:21)  Spiritual death is separation from God for all eternity.

Peter, speaking of Jesus said, “Who His own self bare our sins in His own body on the tree.” (1Pet2:24a )Try to remember; your sins should be history. Keep your eyes on the Master. Paul said, “Lest Satan should get an advantage on us, for we are not ignorant of his devices (2Cor2:11).  If you leave a door open satan will stick his foot in it. Don’t forget to fight for your family and loved ones.

For Christ also hath once suffered for sins,[yours and mine] the just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh,” ( Pet3:18)

 “There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh [soul] but after the Spirit.”(Rom8:1)

Part 2: Sin Killed Jesus. Dividing the soul and spirit

Religion

The Lord knew the road  the knowledge of the tree of good and evil would take Adam down, and that sin would kill him because he had eaten from the tree. He knew the lust that would be in the soul and the flesh of man.God is love.  God is Spirit and can only lead us by His Spirit, His Word, and His love. The Spirit of God does not feed or satisfy the desires of the flesh or the soul unless the soul has been converted back to Him.

 Adam would no longer be led only by God, but by the spirit of darkness.  Adam’s desires would now come through the demands of the flesh and the decision of the soul. The soul, his mind, will, and emotions, would no longer be pure. The wicked one whom Adam had obeyed can now lead him by his flesh as it makes the demands upon the soul. The devil operates in the hidden darkness. He can’t touch our spirit. If we belong to God, we are sealed! We are zip- locked in. We are led by God’s Holy Spirit, and the more of His Word we take in, the more influence our spirit will have on our lives. The spirit works from inside of you to the outside. The soul and body, however, have to be fulfilled by the things on the outside of this fallen sin ruled world. This is where the devil tries to step in and offer you this, that, and another thing. In other words, he offers”nothing for everybody.” The soul operates through taste, touch,see, feel, hear,and smell. And all the lust of the world flows through these streams.Once man drew the knowledge, and the dark power of evil from that tree of good and evil, it is his. Out of that tree comes every temptation that is in the world .The desires of the body and soul are many many times stronger than the spirit. All the spirit needs to be secure and complete in God, is His spirit, His word, His love, His mercy and His grace. Your living soul is not the same as your spirit. The soul and spirit can be divided. If you are born again, your soul will be saved, and it will go with you to heaven, but if you are not saved, it will go to hell with you.

 The Word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit.” Heb 4:12, the great divider is The Word. Do you believe It enough to act on it or not?  

I believe these experiences of Jesus with Peter are the best examples I can find of the dividing of the soul and spirit. When Jesus said to Peter, “come,” Peter stood on the water on the word of Jesus, which is spirit. When Peter looked at the storm,  he saw it with the eyes of his soul, and he was filled with fear; standing on spirit, but looking with the soul at the same time. The spirit and soul were divided. He had been standing on the faith of Jesus. If Jesus had said to Peter, I have the storm covered; he would have walked right through the storm. Peter had not been converted at this time. “Jesus said,  when you are converted strengthen you’re the brethren.” Peter did not receive the spirit until Jesus breathed on him. Therefore, the  spirit was not in him. He could only see through his soul. When Peter cried out for Jesus to save him, Jesus said, “oh you of little faith, wherefore did youdoubt.”Mt.14:31 the soul can never believe for more than it can see.

Although Jesus was God made flesh, the Son of Man, Christ Jesus, was 100% man. When He was on the cross, His spirit said Father into your hands I commend my spirit. His suffering soul, on the cross,cried out MY GOD! My God! Why have you forsaken me? We must as children of God have a perfectunderstanding of sin; to hate it as we should and to move others away from it. Today sin is toocommonplace,even within the church.

When Jesus was being tried , This good man, Peter who had spent over three years with Jesus,denied Him.  This perfectly taught man said three times, I don’t know the man. So the best, of the best of men, without the spirit in him, is nothing but a liar. His life is a lie.  No liar will ever enter the gates of heaven. Rev 21:8”…. all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone.” The soul will never value anyone or anything above itself, and it’s will to care for itself. Much more to come on sin, share with everybody, share with your pastor. The Lord has a cry in his heart for those trapped in sin, and not getting help. Do you have  friends and family that you need to be fighting for, praying for, and talking to?
