    June 2021 What God Requires of Man?

    THESE 3 Things

     

                What God Requires of Man

    Micah 6:6 

    With what shall I come before the Lord [to honor Him]
    And bow myself before God on high?
    Shall I come before Him with burnt offerings,
    With yearling calves?

    Will the Lord be delighted with thousands of rams,
    Or with ten thousand rivers of oil?
    Shall I present my firstborn for my acts of rebellion,
    The fruit of my body for the sin of my soul?

    He has told you, O man, what is good;
    And what does the Lord require of you
    Except to be just, and to love [and to diligently practice] kindness (compassion),
    And to walk humbly with your God [setting aside any overblown sense of importance or self-righteousness]? AMP

    How shall we Honor God & Country this June and enter into Summer? Flag Day is Monday, June 14th & Men’s Health Week starts the same day, although Paul writes to young Timothy that physical exercise is good,

    1 Timothy 4:7-8

    Amplified Bible

    But have nothing to do with irreverent folklore and silly myths. On the other hand, discipline yourself for the purpose of godliness [keeping yourself spiritually fit]. For physical training is of some value, but godliness (spiritual training) is of value in everything and in every way, since it holds promise for the present life and for the life to come.

    Father’s Day & the First Day Of Summer are on June 20th, so with 27 Bible Verses About Summer in Holy Scripture, we would do well to take heed:

    Proverbs 10:5-7

    5  He who gathers during summer and takes advantage of his opportunities is a son who acts wisely,
    But he who sleeps during harvest and ignores the moment of opportunity is a son who acts shamefully.
    6  Blessings are on the head of the righteous [the upright, those in right standing with God],
    But the mouth of the wicked conceals violence.
    The [a]memory of the righteous [person] is a [source of] blessing,
    But the name of the wicked will [be forgotten and] rot [like a corpse].
    The KJV Dictionary Definition of ‘summer’ is, One who casts up an account.  So what does this have to do with each and every one of us, who call ourselves, Believers?

    Romans 14:12-14

    12 So then, each of us will give an account of himself to God.

    13 Then let us not criticize one another anymore, but rather determine this—not to put an obstacle or a stumbling block or a source of temptation in another believer’s way. 14 I know and am convinced [as one] in the Lord Jesus that nothing is unclean [ritually defiled, and unholy] in itself; but [nonetheless] it is unclean to anyone who thinks it is unclean.
    JESUS in The Gospel/Good News of Matthew 4:17; Chapter 5; 6:33 & 11:12 tells us to “Seek First And Most Importantly, The Kingdom Of GOD, HIS Kingdom & HIS Righteousness!” The following Scripture hopefully wraps up ‘the three things’ that should matter most to all followers of Jesus, for In ONE Clear and Precise WAY, The Apostle Paul states:

    Romans 14:17-19

    17 for the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking [what one likes], but of righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. 18 For the one who serves Christ in this way [recognizing that food choice is secondary] is acceptable to God and is approved by men. 19 So then, let us pursue [with enthusiasm] the things which make for peace and the building up of one another [things which lead to spiritual growth].

     

    1 Corinthians 4:20-21

    20 For the kingdom of God is not based on talk but on power. 21 Which do you prefer? Shall I come to you with a rod [of discipline and correction], or with love and a gentle spirit?
    Allow me to close with this statement and a Word of Encouragement by Israel’s Priestly King David, that I believe will resonate in the hearts, minds, spirits, strengths and weaknesses (especially in the souls) of most, if not all confessing Christians worldwide:

    JESUS Asked in Luke 18:8b, ” When the Son of Man comes, will He find ‘faith‘ on earth? ” What is the Hebrew Root meaning of Faith? It is the act whereby a person lays hold of God’s resources, becomes obedient to what He has prescribed and putting aside all self interest and self-reliance, ‘trusts’ Him completely.

    Spiritual research and prayer team for NM- results from today’s meeting and details about our next gathering

    Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
    Though we were fewer in number today, it was a good time together sharing some of the history of NM, both good and troubling, as well as reporting on some current positive developments. We continue to pray for the macro and micro breakthroughs we all want to see. During the meeting, I recalled the charismatic renewal that happened here in the late 1960’s and 1970’s especially among the Catholics. NM became a major center for that renewal that impacted our country and world. May we see the Lord “do it again” across the whole Body of Christ as we keep going and keep trusting Him, mobilizing and educating His people to flow together in prayer and action to this end!

     

    Dr. Leslie Keegel, who chairs the global Foursquare movement and has given us valuable prophetic input in the past, was with us towards the end of the meeting. He encouraged us to move in three stages together as they did in his native Sri Lanka where they have seen considerable spiritual breakthroughs in an openly hostile atmosphere: 1) Prayer- united, incessant and strategic; 2) Research- never stop uncovering what the enemy does under cover, asking for the spirit of revelation and insight; 3) Combat- as things are uncovered needing to be dealt with, take prophetic, Spirit-led action, blessing our communities. You may want to see what he shared starting at 1:01:10 as well as the rest of the attached video from our time together.

    Mark Tross and I are thinking that we could meet in person next time since the restrictions have been relaxed for such gatherings. Our church, Heights Cumberland Presbyterian Church (8600 Academy RD, NE in Albuquerque) should be able to host us, and we will order in lunch for you all- our treat. We are proposing to have our next gathering there on Thursday, June 24th. If we can start at 10 am like we used to do and go till about 1 pm, that would give us more time to go deeper in sharing what we are discovering and also to pray more.We spoke just a bit about Freemasonry, and I am attaching a summary from David Ovason’s book that details how the Masons put our national capital under its occult influence which continues to this day. They are also active here in NM. I also mentioned the encouraging “Pray America” nationwide effort happening in July so am  attaching a bit about that as well if you would like to participate and especially if you can help to mobilize your churches or prayer groups to take part. Please see the information and website links below:

     

     

    Please let me know if this timing does not work for you, and if enough of you have an issue with it, we will try to change the date.

     

    Let’s keep praying, trusting and going for the Lord and His good purposes for New Mexico!

    Pray America!

    Coming out of the “America’s Prayer Meeting” online effort last month, Bishop Doug Small of Project Pray is asking if we would consider taking part together in a special July effort with the four emphases noted below.

    From Doug Small:

    “There are four movements being anticipated, including a 28-day prayer guide:

     

    Pray America – Pray! A July 4th Media-driven prayer event designed for congregations to participate in a national call to prayer. The media package will be about 60 minutes, with prayer moments interlaced.

    Pray Everywhere - What will follow is the daily encouragement to ‘pray everywhere’ – prayer walking, prayer missions, prayer ambassador teams to city, county, state leaders, workplace prayer, etc.

    Pray at the Heart – Around the nation teams will be praying, a circular prayer route will encircle the nation, and eight teams will move from the corners of the nation, and North-South-East-West, praying through the states, stopping for dedication, reading proclamations, meeting with leaders, planting “Appeal to Heaven” flags, pouring out oil and wine, salt and water (symbolic actions), appealing to God to send a revival to the church and an awakening to the culture. On Friday, July 23rd, at the Geographic Center of the Nation, from 2-8 PM, we will conduct a prayer service, a consecration service for the nation. Simply. Sincerely, we will pray. We will livestream this event.

     

    Pray to the Edge – In the days that follow, we want to encourage believers to pray to the edge of their city, county, and state. Prayer walking, repeating the national effort, and uniting locally.

     

    We are dependent on the Holy Spirit to fan the flames and help us with promotion … we have no deep pockets to assist our effort. This is pure and simple desperation before God to demonstrate that we believe God to be our only hope!  We are a community of prophets, as of old, walking the land, crying out to God …

     

    This is not my effort – it is our effort! And I hope you will pray about your own initiative, under your own banner, logo, that would complement this effort. I am pleading for unity … as the Lord leads you. Together, maybe we can wake up the church …

     

    We will distribute a prayer guide mostly as an e-publication. It will promote the four movements above – the July 4 America’s Virtual Prayer Meeting – the 245th Birthday of the Nation. And then encourage prayer everywhere, followed by the ‘prayer at the heart of the nation,’ on Friday, July 23rd, at the geographic center of the nation, and finally, in the last week of July, ‘pray to the edge’ of every state, county and city – public prayer gatherings, walks, etc.”

     

    Please do pray for the planning of “Pray America” a nationwide effort for the nation in July that we hope will cover the whole of the country in reviving, transforming, and delivering prayer. You can click for details on the first website link just below. If you or others you know are willing to help coordinate efforts in your state or city or congregation for this initiative, that information is on the second link:

     

    Pray America – PRAY!, July 4-31

    Become a Prayer Mobilizer in July
    Praying for Washington D.C. and the U.S.A.: The Secret Link to the Principalities and Powers that Perpetuates Spiritual Bondage Author David Ovason spent more than 10 years researching America ’s capital and found that from its founding in 1791, there wa s a secret alignment and dedication to certain stars that was made by the Freemasons in order to marry the city to the spirit powers these stars were thought to represent. Could this be a reason why our government is so divided and increasingly corrupt and ineffective? Could this past covenant also be the reason why some ministry leaders who live there complain about the level of spiritual oppression and why believers struggle to stand in a united, ongoing prayer movement? The Apostle Paul warns us “not to be ignorant of the enemy’s devices”. It is important for us to know how a city’s foundations were laid and what dedications have been made since the powers of darkness want to claim any territory offered in this way as their domain. In such a situation, J esus urged us to “occupy” till He comes , and He has given us authority to “tread on serpents and scorpions and overcome all the power of the enemy”. However, if we are to take back territory from the evil one and the kind of spiritual deliverance is to come that breaks oppression and changes the atmosphere of a city or nation, we need to become aware of any claims or legal rights the enemy has that were given to him by past rulers or others. Using such knowledge, in authoritative, united prayer with the Lord’s guidance, can make a big difference in setting territory free and ushering in tangible transformation in favor of His Kingdom. Ovason’s comprehensive book, The Secret Architecture of Our Nation’s Capital: the Masons and the Building of Washington, D.C. (1999, 2000) , is a revelatory study that helps us grasp how spiritual bondage initially was established over D.C. Armed by the insights he reveals, we can better understand how to deal with the ruling spiritual darkness in His authority, renouncing an d breaking any covenants that continue to negatively influence our capital and through it the whole nation. Here are some of the main conclusions that Ovason makes from his decadal investigation: 1. Washington, D.C. is “a city of the stars”. There are over 30 zodiacs in the city designed to point to the actual heavens – thus “marrying the city with the stars”. (Foreword, 1) This was the practice of the ancient Egyptians, Greeks and other pagan civilizations of the past. (p.121) 2. On April 15, 1791, a group of Masons and local officials after planning and proclamation by President George Washington laid the foundation stone for the city at the moment when the zodiacal power of Virgo, called in Masonic circles, “the Beautiful Virgin”, was strongest. “I t is quite clear that the ceremonial placing of the stone related to more than merely the founding of the federal district: it was somehow linked to the future destiny of America itself.” (p. 49) In Masonic tradition, “it was believed that all human activi ties were overseen by the gods” and a cornerstone ceremonial was to “gain the approval of the spiritual beings” (p.71) 3. The Capitol building was oriented by its architects on an east – west axis, “arranging the building – and of course the entire city – in particular relationship with the Sun.” (p. 82) Specifically, they oriented it to the sunset and as the “spiritual fulcrum” of the city, its dome would radiate out “a whole sunburst” of avenues and roads and spiritual influences. (pp. 83 – 84) Some historia ns say that the place the Capitol was built (Jenkins Heights) was where the Algonquin tribe held their tribal conferences in earlier times, a place where Native American skulls and bones have been discovered . One such skull at the Army Museum “bore bullet holes and savage saber marks…vivid reminders that over five million natives were killed during the two centuries of European expansion in America.” (p. 52) President George Washington himself laid the foundation stone to the Capitol with other Masons (Sep t. 18, 1793) (p. 74) 4. The cornerstone for the Washington Monument was laid on July 4, 1848, in the afternoon when the all – important Virgo constellation was operative. In both this dedication and that of the Capitol building in 1793, the Sun was passin g through the same degree of Virgo, which must have been arranged for astrological reasons by the Masons. (p.125) 5. Virgo represents the ancient Mother Goddess worshipped in Babylon and other later ancient civilizations. Virgo was adopted as the hidden symbol of the city (pp.154 – 155) and Ovason documents the many buildings in which her symbols are found in the architecture. He writes, “at least 50 public statues or buildings in the city are involved with the symbolism of Virgo, and each of the 23 public zodiacs emphasizes (in one way or other) this same Virgoan symbolism.” (p. 186) 6. All three of the main buildings which make up the Federal Triangle, – the White House, the Capitol and the Washington Monument – all had their foundation stones laid under the constellation Virgo and each have the Dragon’s Head in their foundation charts. The Dragon’s Head occurs where the path of the Moon intersects that of the Sun and the circuit of the Moon was thought by the ancients to be the “invisible body of a stella r dragon”. The corners of the triangle were “symbolically fixed into the Earth when this beneficial point – the solar – lunar meeting point – was in Virgo.” (pp. 255 – 256) 7. This same triangulation is reflected in the three main stars of the Virgo constellation – Arcturus which falls on the White House, Regulus which falls on the Capitol, and Spica which falls on the Washington Monument. (pp. 256 – 257) Thus, this triad of most important buildings were linked to the stars. “The stellar triangle of Virgo reveals the mystery of the city.” (pp.307,310) 8. From August 6 – 12, the Sun cuts into the horizon at sunset above Pennyslvania Avenue precisely, appearing to set at theend of the avenue. August 10 at sunset, Ovason thinks, is “the crucial symbolic moment”. (pp. 342-343) On August 10, the White House and the Capitol are connected by the disk of the Sun as it sets in the West. (pp. 344-345)As the Sun goes down, the three major stars of Virgo appear in the heavens above as a triangle that mirrors the layout of the Federal Triangle below. “This spiritual stellar triangle literally hangs over the earthly Federal Triangle to the south of Pennsylvania Avenue.” (p. 348)9.Pennsylvania Avenue was intended as a “sacred route” by its designers. (p. 349). Constitution Avenue was also intended to be a sacred pathway.10. This layout of D.C. as a union of earth and skies was intended to remain a secret by its designer.“He knew thatthepowerborn of this connection between earth and skies would continue to beneficially influence the souls of those who lived in the city, even if they did not know, with their conscious minds, whence thispowercame.(italics mine) His whole city was aMystery…harmoniously linked with the skies.” (p. 350)We need to ask ourselves what “power” this is that D.C. has been put under.Worship of the sun, moon and stars has always been a pagan fixation from the time of Babylon, Egypt and other ancient civilizations.If D.C. has been dedicated to such astral powers as Virgo, the Mother Goddess, the Sun and Moon gods, as well as the Dragon, which the Masons have apparently done,what should we as intercessors do about this as those who care for this city and nation that alsoaffects the rest of the world so strongly?Please praywith us in His authority (Luke 10:18-20, Matthew 18:18-20)for the breaking of any spiritual bondage over the USA through its capital and these previous dedications to false gods. Pray that the local prayer leadershipin Washington D.C. with the support of others from outside will have the Lord’s wisdom, unity and power in dealing with this situation effectively.
