Good listen about getting free from Porn

Hi there.....   I hate porn!  I hate everything about it!... I hate what it does to the person engaged in it and the death it brings to the person, their wives/girlfriends and children.

Also,  there are all the downstream effects of pornography: erectile dysfunction,   more twisted lusts, and the crimes people commit to fulfill those new desires and fantasies.

Did you know that the number one reason a woman will leave a man is because of porn addiction?  She knows he's fooling around on her.  I have met many porn widows.... some who were positive that their husbands/boyfriends were having an affair on them. They might not have been physically at that moment but they were emotionally!

There has been so little authoritative teaching on this subject and so many Christian men struggle with this I am thrilled to find this youtube video about purity.

Enjoy!

There's also a book put out by Promise Keepers called, "Sex, God  and Men" by Douglas Weiss.  It has some good stuff in it about the different levels of masturbation etc.  and how to bond with your mate so porn is not so desirable.

Basically..... your best option is to ask Holy Spirit to help you to hate your sin... that's the start.  And, as always,,, run to God... not away from Him!  A healed heart is much stronger at resisting porn than a broken, hurting person.

So If you want to pray with me let's start out this way... You can add whatever the Lord lays on your heart.  

" Lord, your will be done and your kingdom come in our lives in a greater way today.  We claim courage to run to You, not away from you. We know that you were tempted to sin, yet didn't sin and we too can resist temptation! Hallelujah for the hope and victories you have in store for us! Amen!"

Have a great day!

Lord Help Us!

I get so mad when I see Christians more worried about appearances than the people God's put in their path.

It's so, so wrong.... Jesus was a friend of sinners!!!!  Do we even have a clue what that means?   That doesn't mean that the people got instantly delivered of every single sin problem they had and then and only then Jesus would hang out with them!   NO!  God always leaves a bad habit or two so people will learn and grow through the training process.  Always!

If we read James chapter 2 we see that if we fail in just one part we are guilty of it all.  According to Matt. 15:18-20 even our thoughts are dirty and unclean before a holy God!  So why do we think that we have to maintain certain standards?????  Who are we trying to impress?  What are our motives????


We desperately need his mercy and grace.... I myself run into the holy of holies and receive my robe of righteousness  many times a day. Thank God its a free gift!

I make sure that before I get a 'holier than thou' attitude that I say, "It's only by God's grace that I'm not doing 10x worse!"  We need to die to what we think people will say and think about us period!  Being a 'Living sacrifice' means just that. (Rom 12:1) The Fear of Man is a snare and a trap. (Prov. 20:25)

So this applies to our friends who aren't going to church or living a "Christian lifestyle". Who are we to impose our beliefs on them? Do we think that our rules or false judgements will draw them to Christ?  Hardly.... It's God's kindness that leads men to repentance!  Not rules and human standards.

I can only speak for myself and I tell you I am so sick of religious people who are trying to maintain their standards. They like the Pharisees conveniently forget love!  We got to look right! And oh!, what will the people say if I am seen with you?"

It was people like that that Kept me away from church for a long time! People who want to make you keep paying for your sin that happened years ago. Give me a break!

Religious behavior is concerned with Appearances and it always takes people away from the simplicity of the gospel.

Now a days its very common for people to live together.   I might not agree but I am not anybody's judge... My Father is very good at talking to his sons and daughters and the last time I checked He hadn't asked for my help. He told me to love people where they were at and to trust Him to change them, in his timing (not mine).

You know.... quite likely my daughter wouldn't have had  a father if I had insisted on this religious standard...  and many people would not have gotten saved and healed over the years as a result.  My in-laws probably didn't agree with us sharing a bed before marriage but they wisely kept their opinions to themselves.  Thank God for people like them.  Now did my boyfriend get saved eventually?  Yes... and let me tell you it wasn't my religious,  self-righteous behavior that won him... it was my non- judgemental love.

Anyhow....  that's my opinion.... I've been praying for my girls and their boyfriends and I believe God has His hand on them.....  Hallelujah!  I just want to shine so bright for the Lord!  I want to emulate love and not religious behavior! There's already too many Christians concerned about what others will think if they do this or that.   Lord help us all to die to the fear of man!
Amen!

I'd be very interested to hear how you have handled these kind of situations in your family.

Have a great day with the Lord!

Cleansing

Hi there.... Someone asked me about cleansing the imagination yesterday and another person asked me about it a few weeks ago so I thought I would write what has worked for me.

Cleansing your imagination so that Holy Spirit can use it and you can trust what you see is extremely important.

I have led people into heavenly encounters many, many times only to have them pull back and disengage because of offense.  When I asked Holy Spirit about it, he said that they had hit a wall and had to be willing to deal with their 'stuff'.  So beware of taking offense.  It usually is a symptom of a deeper issue that Holy Spirit is trying to shine the light on.

So this is what I started out doing many years ago. I had a very hard, seared heart before I got introduced to Jesus and it really grieved me so I asked Holy Spirit for a tender heart. (1Tim. 4:2,  2Kings 22:19, Psalm 51: 10-12)

Second whenever I quit hearing Holy Spirit I would humble myself and go apologize to whoever I needed to.... I kept repenting till his voice/presence was with me again.  (Now I know it's my angels that were hanging around).  You see words that are full of the fruit of Holy Spirit attract Angels  (Gal. 5:22-25) while words that are  full of self and the fruit of self attract demon spirits. (Gal. 5:19-21).  I didn't care what other people thought of me, I needed Him! Desperation works!

Third, I worshiped  a lot... I wanted to be like King David that sang to the Lord.  I wanted to bless His heart because he had done so much for me.  I never ever wanted to grieve Holy Spirit.

As I began to worship all these bad images would come to my thoughts and I tried to stuff them but it didn't help... Holy Spirit said I needed to acknowledge that they were apart of the old me. Then I would confess that they were not the new me and I would ask Jesus to wipe them away from me...  If they wouldn't go away immediately I would ask the Lord what else I needed to do.  Sometimes I had to go apologize to someone.. Sometimes I had to go make it right  etc.   Then I would ask Holy Spirit to help me hate the things that he hated. 

You see we will never get rid of the sin we like.  We have to get to the point where we hate the sin and the death it brings before we will ever give up the pleasure of it.  All sin is pleasurable for an instant but the Bible says it leads to death and it sure does! (James 1:14-15)

So back to cleansing....  Holy Spirit helped me to fast track a lot of cleansing with the power of God's word.  There is supernatural power in God's word to bring it to pass when you mix it with faith. And faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God.   So I would ask Holy Spirit for a promise and when I felt a line or two get highlighted in my Bible I would write it down and start to think about it and speak it over myself and even try to sing it over myself till I knew but I knew it was mine.  Then I had power to fight off the things that led to bad images. 

You know Holy Spirit had me read the Book of James over and over for a LONG time. (many months) I wasn't allowed to read much else in my Bible. Some lady gave me trouble because I wasn't reading the whole Bible every year. I recognized a religious spirit speaking through her.... You decide who you are going to listen to. 

I won't say it's easy.  I've taken lots of ridicule from family members because I won't watch a lot of the TV shows or movies out there. If Holy Spirit says no... that's good enough for me.  He's more important.  I don't make a big deal of it and I certainly don't have a 'holier than thou' attitude. I just quietly leave and go to the kitchen or my room and do something else.  I want my imagination to be Holy Spirit's drawing board at any cost.

Is it worth it?  Yes, yes, yes!  We are spiritual beings!  We are in a war and we win through HIM!  If we won't quit we will never lose!  How many Angels do you want waiting for you to wake up in the morning?  How many people do you want to see saved, healed and delivered?  How many Heavenly Creatures would you like to have as friends?  I have a lion named Reign and a green-striped Tiger  named Emerald that come and  guard me while I sleep.  There's nothing like it!   If you'll keep on this journey the veil between Heaven and Earth will get so thin that you'll be learning how to function in both places at the same time.  It's amazing!  Our brains have the capacity for us to live in two dimensions at the same time.

Holy Spirit will make it worth your while!  You can never, ever out give him!  Whatever sacrifices you have to make he will compensate you for,,, over and over again.

So have fun! I decree that You are more than a conqueror through Him that loved you!  Heaven is closer to you than your hand in front of you!  I pray for Joy in your journey and sweet, sweet fellowship  with Him and your angels and may you always be passionate for Holy Spirit, Jesus and the Father and their Kingdom! Amen!

Big hugs and blessings,
Brenda Gale Thompson

Scrolls

Hi there.   I have had several people ask me about their personal scrolls and how to read them. As far as I know there is no quick answer to that.

Desire is the key to all Heavenly/Kingdom encounters.  So I am determined to stay hungry and to make a difference in any way I can.   The Lord told me that mobilizing his angelic armies was a big help to Him... so I desire to see His angels busy...

I once asked about reading my scroll and the Lord said that as I prayed the Lords prayer (Your will be done and your Kingdom come) over my self and offered myself a living sacrifice (with no agenda) to him, that I was doing what was on my scroll. Hallelujah!

See the Lord knows what's on each of our scrolls and if you knew ahead of time there's a good chance it would freak you out and you would run the other way.  I know I've been freaked out by some of the visions I've had of the future.   As we pursue him and surrender our gates; mind, will, emotions, desires, past, present, future etc... we are pliable and His will and his plans are accomplished in our lives.

So I trust Him.  He's promised to work all things together to my good and His word says that He has exalted his word above his name. Plus He's said that no eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived the things that God has planned for us.  That's good enough for me.

I just step in and ask what He would like to do today.  He knows if my heart needs healing.  He knows what's coming down the pipe and how to prepare me for greater victories.  He's trustworthy!

So have fun stepping in by faith... Ask the Lord to help you get rid of any hindrances to walking by faith in the Spirit. I pray for joy in your journey with Him.

P.S. Ian Clayton has some great teaching on dividing your soul and spirit and cleansing your gates.  His website is www.sonofthunder.org 

Be blessed!

Court of Angels

This morning I stepped into Heaven by faith as I normally do and after I put on my rob of righteousness (Heb. 4:16, Zech. 3:1-7)  and other articles He's given me I got a big hug, then felt Jesus ask me to go to the Angel's court again. 

So by faith I took a big step and I was in the waiting room between our realm, the Angel's realm and the court.   My angel Justice was there and the door posts had all these little angel feathers with eyes in them.   The only difference was that there were lots of angels standing around and they got excited when I showed up.  All of a sudden there was a big cheer as I made my way to the Courtroom door.  It made me cry,,, they were so happy to see me going to court again.

There wasn't a petitioner there so I was granted immediate access.  Michael, Gabriel and Raphael nodded to me and Michael spoke up asking what I wanted.   I said, "I just want to help."  They took out a scroll with the list of all the scrolls I've been given and and asked if I was sure that I wanted more responsibility.

"Yes," I said.   I was given a scroll for Brazil and the angel that I would be communicating with was named "Treasure".  Interesting name.  I wasn't told if he was a prince warring angel or not...

My thoughts went to all the angels standing around in the anteroom waiting and I asked if I could release those angels to go get their testimonies and to fulfill their destinies.

I saw a sigh on Gabriel's lips and they reluctantly said in unison, "No." They are waiting for the right people to come ask.

I left the room and I told the angels waiting that I would spread the word so more Sons and daughters would come visit the angel's court.

So let me give you a good picture so you can use your imagination  and go there.

It's really easy to access.  You just ask!  You first Step in boldly through the rent curtain in the holy of holies  and receive your robe of righteousness. Then when you're ready  ask!  What I've learned to recognize is what I'll share so you can develop your own pathway to this court.

There's a room about the size of a big gym and the door you go into is on the long wall, closest to you. There are small angel's feathers with eyes in them all along the door frame and they can see you and they are so soft to touch.  There is a door on the opposite long wall in the left corner that I've seen the angels come through.  I'm not allowed through that door.  That door leads to the angel's realm.  The door can grow larger for the big angels to come through.

The angel's court is straight across and has big brown doors that open towards you.  Inside it's like a regular court room with three angels...     I just petition whoever they point me to and then they decide. They always give me a scroll and then it's my job to bring it down from heaven and show the scroll whenever the devil challenges my authority. It's that simple.

If I am slow to release the angels in the morning, one of my angels will come nudge me or just say 'Hello' and I'll know okay.... Let's get all you guys busy.   They are so happy when we give them stuff to do.  They wait for us to decree things.  They wait for Holy Spirit inspired words to come out of our mouths!   Truly, there's no life like it!

I have an angel here with me now, helping me to write this. I hope I've made it clear enough for you to use as a launching point for your own encounters.   We do it all by faith.  Our imaginations are sanctified by the blood of Jesus and we've cleaned our memories from the garbage we've seen over the years and I know that  you can do this!  God wants this for you so much!

So go for it!   Let's keep all of God's armies busy.  I'll never forget how, when I was a baby christian (so many years ago), praying for all the guys in my Engineering class, God told me that I could have as many angels as I would keep busy! Really!  As many angels as I would keep busy! He's faithful!  He wants you to keep many, many angels busy too! 

Therefore, I release faith to believe all of God's promises to you and the desire and persistence to get all that God has prepared for you.   Truly, "We will not falter or be discouraged until His justice is established in the whole earth...!" (Is. 42:4)

Have a great day with Him!

Big hugs,

Training & Growing in the Lord

Well it's been six months since I started this job in Northern Alberta. I asked to be trained on coach buses a number of times and I was told that I would have to wait my turn.  Well this week I  got asked to train on coach buses and I am learning so much! The first two training sessions I was overwhelmed, I must admit, but now it's all coming together.  I had no idea that there were so many things you had to look at differently when you drive a 45' bus!

Growing with the Lord is like that.  We coast along for a while and then if we ask, we'll get the opportunity to learn a lot more.  At first when our eyes are opened to the new possibilities it can seem overwhelming... but I want to encourage you to stick it out because it will soon become a lot easier.  God will not leave you or forsake you and He's way better at teaching than any trainer on earth.  Hallelujah!

If you don't give up you'll have another trophy for the Lord, to trade with on the sea of glass. And if you fail... no worries! Practice is never wasted, even when you make mistakes!  In this game we get to keep trying till we succeed or choose to give up.  It's up to us.

Also, If we don't succeed the first time we'll grow in compassion and will be able to comfort others with the comfort we ourselves have received from the Lord.

So Thank You Lord that we are not quitters!  We can't fail for winning, we can't lose for succeeding and in all things you will cause us to triumph! Hallelujah!  Let's keep going... Thank You Lord that we are bright, witty, wise, and a joy to be around.  Thank You Lord for making all our enemies our footstool today.  Thank You Lord for the fear of You in our lives because it leads to wisdom.  Thank You Lord for the fruit of the Spirit in our lives today as we fellowship with You.  Thank You Lord for joy in our journey today.  May we always be so grateful for all You have done for us!  Amen!

Have a great day with Holy Spirit!

Big hugs and many blessings,
Brenda Gale Thompson
